Ling Li followed Su Li to the second floor of the bamboo building. He tried to say something, only to find that he didn’t know how to explain himself.
Seeing Ling Li say nothing when he came over, Su Li looked colder. “Why doesn’t Your Excellency continue to repay my kindness downstairs? Why follow me upstairs?” she said sarcastically.
Ling Li couldn’t help but become angry and say, “It is true that I am teaching them a practice method to repay for all this kindness. Now a few of your members are now qualified by cultivating the practice method. What the hell are you angry for?”
“Your Excellency is jesting. I am only a common person from Dasu Town and wouldn’t dare to get angry with Your Excellency.” Su Li looked indifferent and grabbed a long-haired spider from a jar. Then she said, “Xuangong is precious. I can offer nothing other than testing the antidote for Your Excellency.”
Ling Li looked at the colored spider in Su Li’s hand, which was larger than his fist, and the cold sweat instantly flowed down his body.
Was she going to use this opportunity to take revenge?
“What? Don’t you have the courage to test the poison as the Hierarch of the Yinmo Cult? Or are you afraid of being poisoned by me?”
Although he knew that Su Li was prodding him, Ling Li felt surprisingly uncomfortable. He snorted and sat on the bedside. Looking calm, he said coldly, “Go ahead.”
In his previous life, he not only experienced immense dangers and difficulties as well as intensive fighting in the battlefield but had also gone to hell. How could he be afraid of a poisonous spider?
Su Li patted the spider’s abdomen after she saw Ling Li was ready. The gossamer was spitted out immediately and penetrated into Ling Li’s throat like a small snake swimming through the entrails. Ling Li felt extremely disgusted. But he resisted vomiting.
After less than three minutes, it was over. Su Li made the spider take back the gossamer which had turned from pure white to black and looked very strange.
Ling Li was filled with apprehension. He knew little about poison. What on earth was the blood poison in his body?
Su Li cut open the gossamer and put the spider back to the jar. After that she took out a knife and carefully peeled off the poisons. Some of the poison was poured into a transparent glass bottle and the black poisons immediately turned to multicolor after being dropped in some clear liquid.
A specialist can only master his own field. Ling Li had only a hazy notion about poison. Although his cultivation was far better than Su Li’s, he couldn’t compete with Su Li in the field of poison and detoxification. After all, those two formidable inborn seniors of the Blood Refining Hall were easily killed by Su Li.
Su Li lowered her eyes and stared without a blink at the poison which constantly polluted the serum. Its color was ever-changing. It sometimes resembled a grim skull while sometimes resembled bloody flowers in full bloom.
Ling Li soon observed that the color in the glass bottle was changing from black to multicolor, to red, to yellowish before becoming colorless.
Was the poison detoxified?!
Ling Li was slightly shocked. Suddenly, a black fog rose from bottom and the whole serum immediately turned black. It actually bubbled up with a grunting sound and disappeared in an instant.
Su Li gave a cold hum and drew the smoke together. After the inlet of falling liquid, the poison was immediately quiet as if it had lost all its vitality.
Needless to say, Ling Li knew that Su Li had failed. His lips moved. As he was just about to comfort her, Su Li turned around and said indifferently:
“The blood poison of the Blood Refining Hall has some unique features. It is actually refined from xueyang flower to make yang poison and is supplemented with forty-nine poison flowers and grasses to generate one hundred and forty-seven variations. In order to be certain, I still need to test the poison a few more times.”
Ling Li’s words were stuck in his throat and he said nothing for a while. Su Li’s tone was clearly full of confidence
In addition, it only took her less than an hour to know the makeup of the blood poison. Ling Li found that he was still underestimating Su Li’s poison skills.
“You can live in the valley but don’t go out! Don’t touch my belongings! Don’t use your cultivation arbitrarily!” Su Li said. It was better to say that they were orders rather than requirements.
Ling Li listened in astonishment and couldn’t help but ask, “What can I do?”
Su Li glanced at Ling Li and said, “Eat and sleep. Your Excellency should enjoy the leisure time.”
Then Su Li left.
There was a hint of helplessness in Ling Li’s mild eyes. He didn’t know how he had provoked her... She was fierce and unreasonable.
Although it was not clear whether Su Li’s requirements were serious or not, Ling Li still carefully sealed his cultivation. It would be bad if his careless use of Xuangong actually affected his detoxication.
After solving what happened in the valley, Su Li turned into a doctor and went to the Baicao Tang to clear up a messy situation.
The Baicao Tang had been cleaned up by the clerks and common people of the Dasu Town and even the door planks had been replaced with new ones. The wait-and-see people around the herbal medicine shop all immediately gathered after they saw Su Li.
“Doctor Shuili is here!”
“Great! Doctor Shuili isn’t hurt!”
All the people wearing coarse rags spoke.
Su Li held out her hand with a smile and gently pressed down. Then everyone immediately stopped talking. In their hearts, Su Li was a living Bodhisattva just like Qi Xianqing. They would always listen to a Bodhisattva’s words.
“The Baicao Tang was robbed last night and I was shocked by this. Fortunately, there are no major problems. I am late and need to start seeing my patients.”
Everyone was obedient and queued up. Su Li began a new day of medical realization. Although the people in the town only suffered from minor illnesses and chronic diseases, she could sense that her foundation of the Ghost Valley Meditation Direction was a bit deeper every time she felt the pulse of patients.
“The Ghost Valley Meditation Direction is really the treasure of medical knowledge.”
With so many days of training, she could sense that she was getting closer to the inborn realm. And somewhere there was a hint of presentiment, and a force seemed to break through her limitations and spurt out.
“Will there be new changes to the Ghost Valley Meditation Direction after I enter into the inborn realm?” She thought.
A deep thought passed in Su Li’s eyes. Qi Xianqing would never have thought that Su Li could make such a great progress in cultivation. Therefore, he never mentioned the realm after the inborn realm.
Su Li passed the days between the valley and the Dasu Town. Half a month quickly passed by in the twinkling of an eye. Su Li didn’t go back to the Su House once.
Ling Li’s poison was half detoxified and the other half of it was mutating in the process of detoxification, which meant that Su Li needed to tease out the poison again.
Ling Li looked extremely pale after hearing the news, which made Qu Qingning laugh wildly in secret.
It was all because of Su Li’s terrifying detoxification method. Ling Li actually needed to swallow dozens of poisonous substances and couldn’t eat anything else during the process. The taste of the poisonous substances wasn’t good. Ling Li retched a dozen of times in a day and his stomach became a battlefield for all kinds of poisonous substances. Soon, his viscera were burned. The torments in hell were nothing compared to this.
Fang Yuan secretly swore that he should never be poisoned in future, otherwise he would most surely die after Su Li’s torments. The Young Master Ling Li had since turned pale.
On the second floor of the bamboo building, Ling Li putted down the bamboo window after he saw Su Li disappear into the entrance of the valley and then lay down. Su Li had never lived in the bamboo building since he came here. She would return to the Baiwei Building no matter how late it was as if she didn’t want to stay in the same place as him for too long.
Looking at the low roof of the bamboo building, Ling Li was lost in meditation. Was Su Li... really detoxifying him?
His current complexion was worse than before and he felt his body becoming very heavy. The status of the Blood Refining Hall was lower than that of the Xuelou Cult, not to mention the Yinmo Cult. Why was the exclusive blood poison of such a small cult, which wasn’t famous for refining poison in the martial arts circle, so hard to be detoxified?
The seed of a doubt gradually sprouted in his heart and Ling Li started to think that Su Li was doing something else in secret during the treatment.
“Su Li, are you an enemy or a friend? If you really want to poison me, why would you save me in the first place...”
Ling Li closed his eyes with a heavy heart. He thought that the experience of two lifetimes could make him understand human nature and see things clearly. It never occurred to him that a girl like Su Li could make things so unclear.
After Su Li left the valley, she arrived at the Baicao Tang in the wind and frost of late autumn. Qi Xianqing had been gone for nearly two months and the common people in the Dasu Town had been accustomed to the existence of the new doctor.
As the night deepened, the patients gradually left. Su Li had to see the patients and fill a prescription after the manservant in charge of the work in the Baicao Tang left. Because of this, her efficiency was lower.
At this time, one person whose footsteps were steady but light stepped in.
Su Li said without lifting her head, “Sit by the door and wait till I have seen the patients in front of you.”
Then there was no answer for a long time.
Su Li sensed something unusual and lifted her head. Her pupils constricted after she saw the face of the new patient.
In front of the bench at the door, a cold youngster with bloodstains all over his body stood still. As his chest slightly, rose and fell, he breathed out white breath from his nostrils from time to time. The youngster’s right hand slouched, with drops of blood falling onto the ground and making a dripping sound.
The several common people left saw the horrible injury of the youngster and kept quiet out of fear. Some of them were secretly looking for an escape route.
Human nature was always selfish. Even if Su Li was a living Bodhisattva, no one cared about her life in such a critical moment.
Su Li slightly held back her breath and said, “Your right shoulder is seriously hurt, but you will not die for a while. Sit over there and wait till I’ve seen the remaining patients.”
Astonishment flashed across the youngster’s face. It seemed that he couldn’t believe Su Li could talk so cooly. He looked around and hesitated for a moment and finally sat straight on the bench.
The remaining common people suddenly breathed a sigh of relief.
“It turns out that he is also a patient. It was really terrifying when he came in...”
“The wounds are all over his body. He may be bitten by animals and it is a wonder that he could actually survive!”
“There are many wild children now who have no care for themselves. I don’t know where the kid comes from, gee…”
The patients whispered with very low voices and thought that they wouldn’t be heard by others. However, they didn’t know that what they said was clearly heard by Su Li and the cold youngster.
The cold youngster’s eyebrows throbbed. He thought that they were a bunch of ignorant people so he wasn’t going to get angry with them!
