Chapter 11.1: Stir Trouble
The Lord actually looked no different from his normal self!
Whenever the poison relapsed, it would be at least a good part of the day before it would settle down, but today, in just a short two hours, it…..
Lou Jun Yao did not pay any attention to Bai Zhi Yan’s expression who looked like he had just seen a ghost as his devilishly charming violet eyes shone with an exceptional sparkle. “Go check what kind of an identity that kid has!”
Even the Divine Healer Tribe’s successor had been completely helpless but that little youth who looked to be only about ten years old had actually suppressed his demonic poison with just a single elixir. A person of such capability, even in the Heavens among the clouds, would be a great target for any force on all sides to seek to rope in.
Afterall, in this world where might made right, the status an alchemist enjoyed was usually greater than many of the prominent families and large sects.
High up among the clouds, the Divine Healers reigned supreme and in this generation, the successor to the Divine Healer Sect Bai Zhi Yan was worshipped like a deity. But that youth’s skills in Medicine was clearly quite a lot more brilliant than Bai Zhi Yan.
This youth must be made one of his people!
No matter what price he had to pay! !
Bai Zhi Yan could see His Lord’s strong determination and he sighed as he said: “I understand.”
This was the first time he saw his Lord showing such great interest towards a person and it was feared when the lad was successfully roped in, this successor to the Divine Healer Sect would surely lose the favour of the Lord!
Just thinking about it and his future suddenly seemed bleak.
After Yan Su came back from the Imperial Palace, the people in the manor had naturally jumped into another bout of activity again.
In the Eternal Peace Duke’s Manor, besides the Duchess, there were two other royal concubines and four Ladies who had not seen their husband for a long time. Every one of them had naturally carefully dolled themselves up.
The Duchess had birthed a son and a daughter, Yan Xi Cheng and Yan Ning Luo, both highly gifted and well favoured. Even though her relationship with Yan Su had not been as harmonious as before for many years, these two children of hers had gained for her a good amount of face.
As for the royal concubines and the Ladies, they had all given birth to only daughters.
Although their looks were not like Yan Ning Luo’s that could bring cities down to their knees, they still possessed delicate and refined features. As Yan Su and his several wives all possessed rather outstanding looks afterall, the children they gave birth too would naturally not be all that bad looking.
No matter how bustling the atmosphere was outside, the people inside the room felt almost none of it.
The handsome looking youth was meditating with his eyes closed, as a rush of power swirled around him, preventing other people from coming close.
The light patter of feet suddenly sounded outside the door. The youth’s ear moved slightly and his eyes openly sharply. A strong surge of power then shot menacingly towards the door that had opened halfway.
“If your sister’s herb garden is destroyed, I’ll get Little Snow to sleep with you tonight~” A gentle mirthful female voice came in, soft and harmless sounding, but it caused the youth to jump in fright.
Little Snow was a thousand year old ice toad, and the thing it loved most was poison.
Especially when it had stayed at Qing Yu’s side for so many years and had been fed with poison, it was now the most poisonous among poisons. The poisonous toxins that had crippled his legs back then had actually been sucked out by Little Snow daily bit by bit.
What others saw as terrifying poisons and such, was the most delicious food there was in the eyes of that fella.
But to Qing Bei that was not the point. The point was that that fella….. was really just too disgusting.
Just thinking about it and Qing Bei’s stomach was turning, and his face turned pale. He had a serious obsession with cleanliness and back in the period when his legs were being treated, he had not been able to eat at all for a good two weeks.
Qing Yu pushed the door and came in, to immediately see that constipated look on his face. She could not bear to tease him further and she said: “Alright, I was just teasing. I don’t know where Little Snow has run off to to play. You will not see it around for awhile.”
Hearing that, his heart that had been suspended then finally settled down.
Chapter 11.2: Stir Trouble
“You’ve broken through? Not bad.”
Qing Yu could already feel that the lad’s aura had become stronger from outside. He was actually quite a good seed in terms of cultivation but it was unfortunate that he had been poisoned for those several years which held him back at that most optimal period.
But Qing Bei did not seem to be happy in the slightest as his eyes lowered down to stare at his palms. Shaking his head, he then said: “It’s not enough. I am still too weak.”
“Huh? Too weak?” Qing Yu asked with an eyebrow lifted. “Don’t be greedy. With cultivation one has to progress steadily. When one is too eager for success, they often lose more than they gain!”
“That’s not what I mean.”
“Like just now, I was not able to touch even a corner of your clothes.” Qing Bei’s eyes dimmed. Being so weak, he would not even be able to defend himself, so how was he going to protect his Big Sister…..
He received a sharp rap on the head and Qing Bei was immediately stunned for a moment.
He raised his head up to see the girl before him staring at him with her enchanting pair of phoenix like eyes, her face in a sneer. “You brat, how many years have I lived already? If I can be injured by you so easily, how embarrassing would it be for me?”
Seeing him lower down his head and not saying anything, Qing Yu then softened her tone and said: “The things you are cultivating were what I handed down to you, through a more refined method than what is practised in these lands. You have cultivated only for a mere two years and you can already be considered to be a medium grade expert, peerless among your level. In time to come, you will definitely become stronger.”
She would have to take it slow and not hit him hard. Otherwise what was she going to do if the kid was unable to rise after taking a stumble.
Hearing those words, Qing Bei’s mood improved quite a bit. His eyes filled up with resolve as he said: “I will definitely become strong!”
“Mm. I believe you.” Qing Yu smiled and then ruffled his head.
“Tsk tsk, I just can’t believe that such a wretched place exists here in our manor. People who do not know might wonder which beggar is staying in here…..”
The voice had reached before the person. Qing Yu’s ears were sharp. Those people were not all that far away, criticizing as they came closer, in a group of about three or four.
But….. This place of hers, though could be said to be crude and simple, it was nevertheless meticulously taken care of, and there was even a beautiful well tended herb garden in the yard outside, where to the eyes of any regular person, would just be a bunch of regular plants and flowers.
A place a beggar lived in?
Wasn’t that a bit of an exaggeration?
“Third sis, that just shows you know nothing! This place is where a unfavoured concubine of Father’s lived in back then, and the fact that her two wild seeds are able to have a place to shelter them now is merely due to Father’s mercy.” A girl said with a laugh, her words more venomous than the previous one.
“Damn it!” Qing Bei’s gaze immediately turned cold as he came down from the bed, reaching the door with just a few steps, thinking of going outside to teach a lesson to those women who did not know what’s good for them.
Qing Yu stood leaning against the side of the door as she stretched a hand out lazily to block him. Throwing him a glance, she said: “Go sit back down now. Squabbling with women, don’t you feel cheap?”
“Their mouths stink! Am I expected to just tolerate it? !” Qing Bei was filled with disbelief. She could remain so calm in this situation? This was totally unlike her usual self who avenged the slightest aggrievement!
That’s right, having been together for so many years, Qing Bei had more or less come to understand his elder sister’s character.
A personality indifferent as still water, never initiating trouble as that was what she hated the most, keeping such a low profile that people could even forget she existed.
But, she was also one who bore grudges very much.
No matter who, if they dared to come antagonize her, it might not be so bad if she was in a good mood. If they caught her on a bad day, then they would really be in for it.
