Chapter 97: Devil Qi
Sima You Yue shook her head, saying, “ I haven’t thought of any idea yet. I can only suppress the poison in Grandfather’s body for a period of time for now.”
“Two days.” Sima You Yue said, “ We have to find a way to counter the poison within these two days, or else the result will still be the same after these two days.”
“ Okay. First suppress the poison for Grandfather.” Sima You Le anxiously said.
“Take off Grandfather’s upper robes.” Sima You Yue nodded towards the two of them and said.
Shao Ling just happened to walk in and she instructed him, “ Tell the innkeeper to send up a jug of strong wine as well as a new piece of cloth.”
Shao Ling saw Sima You Le stripping off Sima Lie’s clothes and didn’t know what Sima You Yue wanted to do, however, he still promptly called for the guards guarding the door to do what Sima You Yue had instructed.
The strong wine and new clothes were quickly sent up and Sima You Le had already finished taking off Sima Lie’s upper robes.
Shao Ling passed the wine jug over and motioned for the guard to exit before closing the door.
“Fifth Young Master, the strong wine is here.” Shao Ling held the wine jug as he walked over..
Sima You Yue took the cloth and let Shao Ling open the wine jug before taking the wine jug herself and pouring the wine over the cloth. When the cloth had been completely soaked by the strong wine, she used the cloth to wipe the top half of Sima Lie’s body.
After she had wiped it three times, she threw the cloth to the corner and, with a thought, a delicate box appeared in front of everyone.
She opened the box and took out a needle from inside and quickly stuck it into Sima Lie’s body. After that, she stuck a second and a third…
Sima You Le and the three of them stared as Sima You Yue stabbed Sima Lie’s body full of needles and were all extremely shocked. They had no idea what function these needles had.
After half an hour had passed, Sima You Yue’s forehead was completely beaded with sweat. After she had placed in the final needle, she heaved a sigh of relief.
“Fifth Bro, is it done?” Sima You Ran asked when he felt Sima You Yue relax.
Sima You Yue took her sleeve to wipe the sweat off her forehead and said, “ Mm, it has been suppressed for the time being.”
Sima You Yue had needed to be careful at every single step and could not make a single mistake. As a result, the pressure was immense and it was only at the end when she had successfully finished the acupuncture that she had managed to suppress the poison and contain it at Sima Lie’s chest area.
“The ones on Grandfather’s face have completely subsided!” Sima You Le said excitedly as he saw Sima Lie’s face.
Sima You Ran and Shao Ling looked over and the black qi on his face had truly disappeared, returning him to his usual color. However, because he was injured, he was completely pale.
“Fifth Bro, how did you accomplish this?” Sima You Ran asked.
“I used needles to block Grandfather’s acupoints.”
“Acupoints? What is that?” Sima You Le raised his eyebrows in question. “Also, Fifth Bro, when did you learn medicinal arts?”
“I always knew them, you just never knew.” Sima You Yue said, “Grandfather is currently unable to move so you all have to remain here to watch over him. I’m going back to my room to rest for a bit and see whether I can think of any ideas.”
“Mm, you go ahead and rest then.” Sima You Le said.
Sima You Yue kept the remaining needles into her interspatial ring then turned to leave.
Sima You Ran looked at her retreating figure as his eyes flashed with puzzlement.
Sima You Yue came to the room beside and didn’t care about who had occupied it before. In any case, it was hers now. She locked the door from the inside then teleported her body into the Spirit Pearl. She wanted to take a look and see whether the medical skills in here would be able to help her in any way. She never thought that she would see Mo Sha the moment she entered.
“Mo Sha, what are you doing here? Weren’t you beside the Golden Snake Fruit tree?”
“The Black Qi on your grandfather’s chest… what does it look like?” Mo Sha directly asked.
Sima You Yue knew that Mo Sha could enter and leave the Spirit Pearl as he pleased, and she had already guessed earlier that he would know about the things happening outside, so she wasn’t surprised when he knew about Sima Lie’s condition.
She thought for a bit before saying, it looks like a bird claw but it’s six-toed.” Sima You Yue said.
“ Six-toed, I knew it.” Mo Sha muttered.
Sima You Yue saw Mo Sha’s reaction and asked, “You know it?”
“ That’s not a poison, its Devil Qi.” Mo Sha said.
“What? Devil Qi?!” Sima You Yue’s eyes widened, “ Didn’t you say people from the Devil Clan remained in the Devil Realm? How come there’s Devil Qi on Grandfather’s body?”
“How am I supposed to know? I haven’t gone back in years.” Mo Sha said, “You can just wait until your Grandfather wakes up before asking him.”
“Since it’s Devil Qi, do you have any way to save my Grandfather?” Sima You Yue looked expectantly at Mo Sha.
Mo Sha had never seen Sima You Yue look at him with that kind of gaze before. In the past, No matter whether she was threatening him or thanking him, her gaze always contained a hint of estrangement. However, the way she was currently looking at him right now carried a trace of dependence. This caused him, who had never been depended upon before, to feel weird.
“How about it? Do you have any ideas or not?” Sima You Yue urged when she saw that Mo Sha was not speaking.
Mo Sha pushed aside the unknown feeling in his heart and said, “I do have an idea and it is simple. However , after getting rid of the Devil Qi, your Grandfather’s body will receive damage.”
“Then what should we do?” Sima You Yue asked.
“You just need an Ultimate Sovereign Pill.” Mo sha said.
“Ultimate Sovereign Pill? What kind of pill is that? Which rank?” Sima You Yue asked.
“A pill that helps one’s body to recover. Fourth rank.’ Mo Sha said.
“Fourth Rank?!” Sima You Yue was stupefied, where was she supposed to find a Fourth Ranked Ultimate Sovereign Pill right now. “If it’s really impossible, then we just have to help Grandfather preserve his life for now. When I’m stronger I will just find a way to help him recover!”
“I took a look, the Spirit Pearl has the ingredients necessary to make the Ultimate Sovereign Pill.” Mo Sha said.
Sima You Yue raised her head and looked at him, blinking her eyes, “That’s right, you know alchemy. Help me alchemize an Ultimate Sovereign Pill, okay?”
“If you want me to lend a hand, that’s fine. But you have to agree to one condition.” Mo Sha said.
Sima You Yue was stunned. After that, she immediately said solemnly, “ If you are able to save my grandfather, I promise you that when I am able to dissolve our contract, I will dissolve it.”
Mo Sha didn’t think that Sima You Yue would know what he was thinking. But just thinking about the connection that they had, it wasn’t strange for her to know.
However, he didn’t feel that it wasn’t good. It was just that for someone with his identity, how could he be bound by a person for eternity?!
“Since you know, then there’s no need for me to say it. I can refine an Ultimate Sovereign Pill but you have to inject your spirit power at the end. If not, without using Devil Qi, that pill will directly claim his life.” Mo Sha said.
“I know. Then when should we begin? “ Sima You Yue asked.
“We can start after you’ve rested.” Mo Sha said, “ I can also make use of that time to prepare the ingredients.”
“Mm.” Sima You Yue nodded as she walked to a place beside the Golden Snake Fruit tree and sat down.
This Golden Snake Fruit Tree was very useful in aiding the soul in recuperation and was able to help her recover her vitality.
When she felt that she had more or less recovered, Mo Sha appeared in front of her, saying, “The ingredients have already been prepared. We can begin. The Spirit Power needed for these fifth Ranked pills are not low, you have to properly prepare. These pills are ones that I just refined; they help to recover one’s Spirit Power. You have dark qi inside you so even if you use it, there won’t be much of a difference.”
