Chapter 186: Unblocking the meridians
Half an hour had already passed since Sima You Yue and the others had left the room.
Bai Yuan Chun’s personality was extremely good. If there was anything, he let Sima You Yue and the others say whatever they wanted. If there wasn’t anything, he still planed to let Sima You Yue and the others speak a whole lot.
After they reached back, Sima You Yue started to prepare to open Little Tu’s meridians.
Wei Zi Qi and the others called Sima You Yue and Bei Gong Tang over to ask about the basic situation.
Sima You Yue explained what Halcyon said to everyone, and the few of them were extremely surprised.
“Little Tu actually has the bloodline of a Spirit Beast.” Fatty Qu scrunched his lips, showing that was more than just a little excited about this.
“No wonder he heals so much faster than the average person.” Bei Gong Tang recalled the speed of which his wounds had healed. She had her suspicions before, but she only knew the reasons now. After all, the medicine that they had prepared for him were not the best at healing wounds, so he would need some time to recover.
“You Yue, how much time would you need in order to completely open his meridians?” Ouyang Fei asked.
“We’ll have to look at the current circumstances first.” Sima You Yue said, “In any case, there’s still a lot of time before the auction. I’ll go and take a look at his inherent ability first. You all can go take a look around outside if you have nothing else to do, there’s no need to wait for us.”
Sima You Yue and Bei Gong Tang came to the room, where Little Tu was sitting on a stool, waiting for them.
“Little Tu, I’m going to ask you one last time. Are you really willing to endure the excruciating bone eroding pain?”
Little Tu nodded his head, saying, “Older Brother, there’s no need to worry. I will endure it.”
“Okay then.” Sima You Yue took out a jade bottle, saying, “First eat the pill inside here, and it will protect your five visceras and six bowels.”
Little Tu took a pill and felt as if his hand was being frozen into ice. He did not know whether or not he would turn into an ice man after eating this.
However, he still ate it without the slightest hesitation.
Sima You Yue held on to Little Tu’s hand and inserted a bit of Spiritual Qi into his body, catalysing the pill so that it would activate immediately. In just a moment, Little Tu’s Body started to shiver with cold.
Sima You Yue saw that the time was just about right as she turned to say to Bei Gong Tang, “Bei Gong, go outside the door and guard it. Nobody is allowed to disturb us during this period of time no matter what. Or else, Little Tu’s life will be in danger.”
Bei Gong Tang nodded her head and she went outside the door to guard it.
Sima You Yue sucked in a breath and quickly carried the ice cold Little Tu to the bed. After that, she used a little flame wrapped in Spiritual Qi to slowly pour into Little Tu’s body.
In the blink of an eye, Little Tu felt a blazing heat that drove off the biting cold. In a short moment, it was as if he was trapped inside a body that was roasting on an open fire.
Sima You Yue could not help but comfort Little Tu right now, because she had not choice but to pour her entire power into that little flame in order to burn away whatever was in his meridians. One little mishap would burn Little Tu to ashes.
That little flame was even thinner than a strand of hair, and it entered Little Tu’s meridians. She had only gone through 3 meridians when she felt her spirit power drain away. Unsatisfied, she could only withdraw her flame.
Little Tu had remained silent the entire time. It was only when Sima You Yue withdrew her flame that he passed out immediately.
Hearing movement from inside, Bei Gong Tang pushed the door open and entered. Seeing the unconscious and pale Little Tu along with Sima You Yue who was covered in sweat, she asked, “How is it?”
“Only accomplished 40%.” Sima You Yue stood up and felt a bit giddy. She had consumed quite a lot of Spirit Power this time, and it was almost completely drained.
“You don’t look too good yourself. You should take a rest first. I’ll take care of Little Tu.” Bei Gong Tang said.
“Okay.” Sima You Yue took out a pill and ate it before preparing to go back and rest.
“You Yue.” Bei Gong Tang called her to a stop.
“Thank you.” Bei Gong Tang looked gratefully at Sima You Yue.
“What’s there to thank me for? I only thought of helping him because I saw that he looked so cute and pitiful.” Sima You Yue replied.
She opened the door and left once she finished speaking.
Although this is what she said, Sima You Yue subconsciously knew, according to Sima You Yue’s personality, she would not do so much for a stranger. The only reason she was willing to do this was because she herself had treated this young boy special.
Sima You Yue returned to her house. Too much spirit power was used that the pill she just ate was nowhere near enough to replenish it. As a result, she took out the Soul Fluid and dripped it into her mouth before closing her eyes to begin to cultivate.
Once the Soul Fluid entered her mouth, she felt the weariness dissipate by more than half.
When it reached the second ****, she opened her eyes. By then, the weariness had completely gone.
She came to where Little Tu’s house was. She saw that he had already awaken, but his body still appeared more weary and could not lie down on the bed.
“You’ve recovered?” Bei Gong Tang asked.
“Mm.” Sima You Yue looked at Little Tu’s pale face and her eyebrows knitted together, saying, “Little Tu’s condition doesn’t look good.”
“You think that everyone has your perverse amount of spirit strength?” Bei Gong Tang glared at her, saying, “It’s already not bad that he is able to hold on until now.”
‘Mm.” Sima You Yue understood as well. After thinking it through, she took out her Soul Fluid and opened his mouth before lightly pouring a drop into his mouth.
Little Tu only felt that the fluid eased his weariness by quite a bit and he asked, “Older brother, what is that?”
“Something useful to you.” Sima You Yue said, “Only three of your meridians have been opened and you still have nine more. If we use our current speed as reference, we will need to do this three more times. These are also only yoru twelve meridians. After that, you still have your eight arteries and veins and whatnot to open. I’m afraid we’ll need even more time.”
“Thank you, older brother.” Little Tu did not know what else he could do besides say thank you.
“Your luck is really considered to be good. Your meridians appear to be completely blocked and stuffed full of impurities. If you didn’t happen to chance upon me and my extremely hot flames, you would never be able to cultivate for the rest of your life. However, if it was not for Bei Gong Tang who saved you, you would not have your life today.” Sima You Yue said.
“Thank you, Older Sister and Brother. I will never forget the kindness you have shown me.” Little Tu said.
“That’s right. See, your Older Sister Bei Gong isn’t that much bigger than you. If you want to thank her, why not give your heart to her.” Sima You Yue teased.
Bei Gong Tang smacked her, scolding, “You’re talking nonsense again.”
“Haha, I was just kidding.” Sima You Yue said, “I’m planning to head over to Ugly Person for a look. Do you all want to come with me?”
Bei Gong Tang looked at Little Tu and said, “You all can go ahead, I’ll stay here and take care of him.”
“In the afternoon when he’s regained his strength, bring him along with us.” Sima You Yue said.
“We’ll call you when the time comes.” Sima You yue said as she left, “Ugly Person… This name is really weird. The owner may really be an ugly person, that’s why he wanted to name it something like this…”
Just as Sima You Yue said, Little Tu was much better in the afternoon and could get down from the bed and walk around.
Fatty Qu and the others had no time to visit Little Tu when he was nursing his injuries, so Little Tu was shy when he saw them.
Knowing they wanted to go to Ugly Person, Sun Ran Ran arranged some men to prepare Beast Carts for them. They felt that they did not want to waste her good intentions, so they sat on the beast carts and headed to the most bustling street in Peace City.
