Chapter 276 – Hello, hello, hello, what are you thinking about?
Very quickly, Xiao Xu was sent into a very clean and neat room.
Cheng Yan-Luo sat in front of the bed, one hand was placed on Xiao Xu’s wrist as she concentrated on sensing the throbbing of his pulse. In the end, she took back her hand with a grave expression and then said. “The Snow Lotus remaining in his body has already lost its effectiveness. Right now, I’ll first give him Nine Turns medicine pill to delay the time when the poison will break out.”
Once Cheng Yan-Luo said this, Chu Qing-Yan asked in puzzlement. “Can’t you directly solve the poison?”
“At present, we don’t have the prescription to solve the Snake Kiss poison. Considering the information up to now, the only thing I can do is first delay the poison from taking effect. This will buy us time to look for ways to solve it.” Cheng Yan-Luo took a glance at Xiao Xu laying on the bed, she was also somewhat vexed.
Chu Qing-Yan’s heart once again clenched tightly because of her words. “Older sister Yan-Luo, Air Spirit said your teacher researched out ways to solve three out of the top ten poisons in the world. Could it be the Snake Kiss poison wasn’t among the three that were solved?”
Cheng Yan-Luo slanted her a glance. “If it was in those three, then would I have told you before that there is no way to solve it? If I know how to solve it, I would have directly given the medicine to your family’s Highness. If you use your brain, you would know! Seeing that it’s because you are too concerned and can’t think straight, then I won’t put this to heart.”
Originally when Chu Qing-Yan heard her say it can’t be solved, her heart was rattled. But thinking it through and seeing her not a bit worried, it was somewhat odd, so she immediately calmed down. “Then what will Older Sister Yan-Luo do? Do you already have some countermeasures for this poison?”
“That’s more like it. Why be so anxious, there will always be ways to resolve it.” Cheng Yan-Luo walked in front of a desk and wrote a prescription, which she handed to little Ten. She asked Little Ten to go grab the medicine according to the prescription, then turned to say to Chu Qing-Yan. “Little younger sister, since you handed the person over to me, then you must choose to believe me. Also you should rest assured, if everything is as I expect, within three days I will give you a plan to solve the poison.”
Cheng Yan-Luo said it in a careless manner, giving everyone the impression of a swindler trying to con people. Earth Spirit and the others on the side, seeing this, were somewhat worried if this person was reliable. The frank and outspoken Fire Spirit directly said. “Miss Cheng, you are not trying to decieve us, right? Really can find a way to solve this Snake Kiss poison within three days? You are not taking this opportunity to retaliate against our master, right?”
Hearing someone questioning her, Cheng Yan-Luo’s brows pursed up in displeasure. “Little sister Qing-Yan, manage your family’s servants better, don’t let them bite people everywhere.”
“What bite people, you explain it to me clearly?!” Fire Spirit’s explosive temper surged up.
“Not pointing you out is already pretty good!” Cheng Yan-Luo slanted him a glance, his fighting strength was very bad.
“You——” Fire Spirit wanted to argue with her, but was stopped by Wood Spirit and the others.
Chu Qing-Yan could tell Cheng Yan-Luo didn’t really want to argue with Fire Spirit, so she lifted her hand and let them withdraw. “Older Sister Yan-Luo, then I will inconvenience you with this matter.”
Since you don’t use people you suspect and if you use people, don’t suspect them, then she chose to believe her.
“En, in a while when little ten has finished brewing the medicine, he will bring it to you. You are in charge of feeding it to your family’s Highness, then everything will be good.” Cheng Yan-Luo made it clear to her.
“But now, His Highness can’t drink anything anymore.” Chu Qing-Yan took a glance at the person laying on the bed, she was somewhat distressed. She simply couldn’t feed anything to Big Block of Ice when he is unconscious.
“Then this isn’t something I ought to be worried about. You think of a way yourself! My duty is very important, so I’ll go first.” Cheng Yan-Luo reached out a hand and patted her shoulder in a Schadenfreude manner, then walked out.
“Huh…” Chu Qing-Yan blushed with shame. This was the so called doctors having hearts of parents? What ghost is this!
She turned and saw that Fire Spirit and the others were all covered in dirt, without a clean spot anywhere. Chu Qing-Yan immediately chased them out to clean up and rest. Just now, she had already found Sha Feng to consult over this matter, he was also very happy to provide them with room and board.
Waiting until peace was restored to the room, Chu Qing-Yan sat on the bed. Her hand extended out to grip that pair of ice-cold hands. In a low tone, she said. “Big Block of Ice, everyone is worried about you, you must get better.”
At this time, Little Ten entered, carrying a bowl of hot soup. “Older Sister Chu, this is the medicine soup Senior Sister asked me to boil. Quickly get His Highness to drink it.”
“Okay, thank you.” Chu Qing-Yan accepted the bowl and smiled at him.
Little Ten immediately stood straighter, then said to her. “Senior Sister had said, the herbs used to make this medicinal soup is very precious, there are only enough herbs in the medical center to make this one bowl, so you must by all means not spill even a drop. Otherwise, it would affect the efficiency of the medicine.”
Finished speaking, Little Ten cheerfully left, leaving Chu Qing-Yan alone facing this full bowl of medicine and becoming a statute.
Now Big Block of Ice was unconscious, with jaws shut tightly. How could she feed him?
Wait, wait, feed?
Could it be she must feed it to him lip to lip?
Chu Qing-Yan glanced at those thin lips, although now they were a dark purple color, why does she feel as if it had another kind of sex appeal? It seemed to carry a trace of enticement.
She subconsciously swallowed a mouthful of saliva.
No, not good. How could she let her imagination run wild at this time?
When she opened her eyes again, her brain already had an idea.
She pushed open the door to the room and called Wood Spirit in.
“Little Consort, do you need something from this subordinate?” Wood Spirit asked.
Chu Qing-Yan told him about her predictament, then said what she needed his help on. “I need you to help me make an utensil that can be used to pass on water. It should be about a middle finger long, then it should be thin…”
Chu Qing-Yan used clear details to describe the straw in the modern world. Originally Wood Spirit was at a loss, but after listening for a while, he finally understood. Afterwards, he turned and went to the medical center’s backyard. Chu Qing-Yan waited a short while before she saw him walk in with a green thing in his hand.
It was a little tube made from rolled up green leaves. Don’t know what methods he used to fix the leaves in place. In any case, it was a imitation straw made from green leaves.
After Chu Qing-Yan accepted it, she couldn’t help but want to praise him for being so capable.
After returning to the room once again, the soup was still giving off steam. Chu Qing-Yan didn’t continue to delay, she directly drank that medicinal soup. Then she stretched the green leaf straw into Xiao Xu’s mouth, her hand lightly supporting it, then she lowered her head and went closer. She used the green leaf straw to pass the medicinal soup from her mouth into his.
Although this method was very useful because Xiao Xu was completely unaware and also to make sure none of the medicine is wasted, Chu Qing-Yan did this slowly mouthful by mouthful, until she fed him the entire bowl of medicinal soup. As a result, both of her cheeks were extremely sore afterwards.
She put down the bowl and immediately kneaded her cheeks. Looks like feeding medicine doesn’t only rely on technique, it also depends on physical power.
But after she finished feeding him without wasting a drop.
Chu Qing-Yan was just about to get up and tidy things up when out of the corner of her eyes, she saw Xiao Xu’s chest. She discovered his chest suddenly moved up and down. She immediately stopped her movements. “Big Block of Ice, is there something wrong?”
She hadn’t finished speaking when a mouthful of black blood sprayed out from Xiao Xu’s mouth. It dyed the bed and the quilt. Afterwards, his entire person once again fell back onto the bed.
This scene made Chu Qing-Yan’s face turn pale. She could clearly sense Big Block of Ice’s breathing become even weaker. As if at anytime, he would stop breathing.
She shouted. “People come ah, quickly someone come ah——”
