Gu Ruoyun swept her gaze towards Qi Haoran and a hint of surprise appeared in the corner of her eye.
It's the first time I've heard that my master and the Imperial Physician Qi were acquainted.
Qi Haoran somehow interpreted the look of surprise on Gu Ruoyun's face as a look of terror for having her lies exposed. He lifted his head arrogantly and shot a look with a cold smile at the woman in green, "What? Are you scared now that you know of the relationship between my grandfather and the Holy Doctor? It's alright, you only need to kowtow before me and apologize. Perhaps I might even spare your life!"
Gu Ruoyun ignored him and instead focused her gaze upon Supreme Gao's stern yet handsome face. She calmly said to him, "If you don't mind, please let me take a look at the Crown Prince."
Qi Haoran's expression changed drastically when he realized that Gu Ruoyun had completely ignored him. He glared at her fiercely, "Damned girl, did you not hear me speaking to you?"
As the grandson of Imperial Physician Qi, he had always been treated with respect from a young age. Even people who were as noble as emperors and princesses were not on par with him, Qi Haoran! However, this woman had dared to ignore him! This was intolerable!
Supreme Gao pondered for a moment before slamming his hand on the table. He then rose to his feet as a severe look flashed in his eyes, "Miss, We shall trust in your word this one time and escort you to see Our Imperial Son."
Regardless of the situation, Supreme Gao was a Supreme King!
Naturally, as a Supreme King, he would be decisive and knows what would benefit him the most.
All these years, he has had to endure oppression form Imperial Physician Qi simply because of Imperial Physician Qi's great proficiency in medicine. Hence, he could not offend him! However, if there were someone who could surpass Imperial Physician Qi, then that old man would no longer be of no use to him and he would not need to listen to Imperial Physician Qi anymore!
Therefore, Supreme Gao was determined to make this decision!
"Your Imperial Majesty," Imperial physician Qi's expression sank and he swept a cold gaze across Gu Ruoyun's face as he exclaimed icily, "It seems that my body can't take much more. Since you've chosen this little girl, I can only resign from my post as the imperial physician. I hope you won't regret this!"
Supreme Gao was shaken. He knitted his brows and looked as if he was deep in consideration.
After a long pause, he relaxed his brows and replied in a clear voice, "Imperial Physician Qi, if this is your decision, We shall not stop you."
In the past, Supreme Gao would never have taken this lightly.
However, Imperial Physician Qi had overstepped his place and used his great skills in medicine to completely disregard him, a Supreme King! He even had the audacity to order him around! If Supreme Gao does not stand his ground now, he would be dangling in the palm of that old man hand for the rest of his life!
For his honor as a Supreme King, he could not let anyone abuse him!
The imperial physician had forgotten about this. He thought that he had Supreme Gao's life in his hands so he had behaved as he pleased.
"Imperial Majesty, since you've made your decision, I will leave the palace immediately. However..." Imperial Physician Qi had initially thought of using his resignation to threaten Supreme Gao but he never anticipated that Supreme Gao would have agreed to it so easily. He was very unhappy with the outcome and layers of fiery anger exploded from within him like waves surging towards the sky, "If this young lady is unable to save the Crown Prince, don't think of coming to me to ask for my aid, Your Imperial Majesty. By then, even if you offered me the world, I would never ever help you. Haoran, we're leaving."
A vicious glint flashed in his eyes as he walked towards Mo Shangfei. He paused and said scornfully, "Mo Shangfei, do you think you can have peace after spewing these lies? Don't forget, Supreme Jin is on a manhunt for the Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian! If he believes that you are affiliated with him, do you think that Supreme Jin would spare you, knowing his temper?"
