Lin Wan’er frowned and asked him, “Can’t you do a kidney transplant?”
The old man laughed, “Look at my body, can I still withstand such a big operation? I guess when I get on the operating table, the person will already be dead before the new lung is put in.”
“That’s true.” Lin Wan’er nodded and said indifferently, “Let me take your pulse.”
The old man was shocked at the words and asked in a flattered manner, “Miss, I’m afraid this …… is not allowed …… how dare I ask you to take my pulse …… ”
Lin Wan’er waved her hand: “There is nothing to be afraid of.”
She pointed to the armrest of the chair and said, “Put your hand here.”
“Thank you, Miss!” The old man hurriedly placed his left hand on the armrest of the chair, and Lin Wan’er’s fingers gently rested on his pulse, closing her eyes and feeling it for a moment before she withdrew her hand and sighed, saying very directly, “I am sorry, although I know some Chinese medicine, I may not be proficient enough, in your case, I am unable to make any changes.”
When the old man heard this, he was stunned for a moment, then he smiled, “Miss, there is no need to blame yourself, I am already satisfied that I have lived this long.”
Lin Wan’er was silent for a moment and spoke, “Let me tell your fortune, my level of fortune telling is still much better than that of a Chinese doctor.”
After saying that, without waiting for the old man’s response, she took out nine copper coins from her pocket.
She then placed the nine copper coins on the coffee table in front of her and, as before, divided them evenly into three rows in a diagonal fashion, grabbing three first and dropping them on the table.
Immediately, she looked at the trigram of the coins and frowned, “The trigram shows that your Yang life is coming to an end, at most, in half a year.”
“Half a year?” The old man’s expression was astonished and he froze on the spot as if he had been cast into a fixation spell.
However, he quickly came back to his senses and let out a miserable smile, “Although it’s a bit shorter than I expected, it doesn’t matter, half a year is enough time for me to explain and arrange my afterlife ……”
Lin Wan’er didn’t say anything, and continued to pick up the three copper coins at the bottom left, throwing them on top of the coffee table once again.
This time, her eyebrows were gently raised as she spoke, “However, there is a silver lining to the current trigram, if you can seize this chance of life, you can live a hundred years long.”
“A hundred years of long life?!” The old man’s eyes widened in a flash and he blurted out, “Is this …… possible? Living to be a hundred years old is at least twelve years away ……”
Lin Wan’er said seriously, “The trigrams don’t lie, your Yang life span, there are only two possibilities, either, within six months; or, after a hundred years old.”
The old man said with some surprise, “Miss …… then …… then how do I grab this silver lining?”
Lin Wan’er grabbed the last three copper coins again and dropped them on the coffee table desktop, then looked at the nine coins on the desktop and frowned.
When the old man saw that she looked grave, he did not dare to ask any questions, and could only wait anxiously.
A few moments later, Lin Wan’er said in doubt: “Strange, this trigram says that your life is surprisingly related to me, but I really don’t have any way to renew your life …… If my father were still alive, he would certainly have a way, but unfortunately he never taught me that kind of skill until he left …… probably also because I’m not that kind of material ……”
The old man didn’t know whether to be happy or sad at this point, after all, even Lin Wan’er couldn’t understand the reason for it, so he had no way to understand it.
At this time, Lin Wan’er grabbed the southernmost bronze coin, cupped it and held it up in front of the old man, saying seriously, “This Yongle Tongbao Back Three Coins, in my trigram, represents the Birth Gate, it is at the southernmost end of the nine bronze coins, which means your Birth Gate, is south of Yanjing.”
“South of Yanjing ……” the old man muttered, confused.
Lin Wan’er’s eyes suddenly lit up and she smiled, “Although I don’t have my father’s skills, I know one person who certainly does!”
After saying that, she looked at the old man and said seriously, “This south of Yanjing must be Jinling!”
