Chapter 843: Two types of antidotes
“It’s not impossible . ” Sima You Lin said, “But we can’t do much about this . The desert is so big that it’d be too difficult for us to look for the reason why . ”
“Unless our personalities are too bad, the probability that we will encounter it isn’t high .
“Yeah, I feel like it wouldn’t be that possible too . ” Mo Bin said, “It would be better for us to report it once we’re back at the sect, so they can send someone to figure it out . ”
“What do we do about those students, then?”
“It will be based on their skill . ”
“The potency of the golden scorpion’s venom has risen quite a bit, but their battle ability has remained the same . I didn’t notice anything out of the ordinary during the earlier fight . As long as the students don’t get stung, it wouldn’t be too dangerous . ” Mo Bin said, “If we bump into anyone later on, we can just let them now . ”
“This is all we can do for now . ”
“I wonder whether You Yue and the others will be able to figure out an antidote . ” He Feng said as he turned back to the tent .
“No problem . You Yue will be able to cure Sima You Le . Finding out the cure is only a matter of time . ” Fatty Qu said confidently .
“I heard long ago that he was a good doctor . It seems like that really is the case . ” Tang Yan said with a smile .
“You Yue’s is a lot more powerful than what you have heard about . ” Fatty Qu saw that the three of them had turned to look at him, so he smiled, saying, “But I won’t tell you . ”
“Do you feel good being so anticlimactic?”
“I do, it feels pretty good . ” Fatty Qu even nodded his head seriously after speaking, emphasizing that he truly felt this way .
“Let’s go nearby and take a look . ” Sima You Lin said to Fatty Qu .
“Alright . ” Fatty Qu replied . Following him had caused him to lag far behind Sima you Ming and the others .
“Sigh, this brat . He’s wet our appetite but doesn’t want to continue speaking . ” He Feng spat a curse as Fatty Qu left .
“This guy did it on purpose . ” Tang Yan said, “But even if he doesn’t tell us, we will find out in time . ”
“That’s true . ” Mo Bin agreed .
Fatty Qu and the others came back after scouting around . Apart from the boundless desert, there was nothing else around .
When night came, Wei Zi Qi came out with some medicine powder, scattering it around them .
“By scattering the powder around, the average worm will not come close . ” Fatty qu explained, “However, we’re not sure whether or not the medicine powder will be useful against the golden scorpions . If it’s useless, it will be troublesome if the scorpions come at night time . ”
“That’s bad luck, stop talking!” Wei Zi Qi glared at him . This guy was always so pessimistic . Right now, his way of speaking was telling him directly that his curses might actually come to pass .
When it was very late at night, Sima you Yue, Bei Gong Tang and the others had finally discovered a cure .
They had to depend on acupuncture to deliver the antidote to Sima You Le, but this antidote couldn’t be done like that, making it exponentially more difficult .
Fatty Qu and the others were currently sitting outside chatting when they saw them come out . “Are you guys done?”
Sima You Yue and the others sat down, saying, “We’ve already discovered the cure, and just need to refine a few more tomorrow . ”
“Is your antidote really useful?” He Feng asked .
“Of course . ” Sima You Yue said, “Not only so, but we’ve discovered two different types . One is to guard against it, while the other is to cure you once you’ve been poisoned . How about it, do you want to give it a try?”
“You can even guard against it?”
“Of course . ” Sima You Yue said . She had based this off the vaccination concepts that she knew about during her time on earth . She didn’t think that it would really be possible .
“You guys only had a day’s worth of time, and without needing to mention discovering the cure, you even managed to find a way to protect yourself against it?” He Feng said with incredulity .
“That’s right . Do you guys want one? My pills are rather useful . You only have to eat it, and you won’t have to be afraid of being stung by the golden scorpions . You just have to eat the antidote within three hours . ” Sima You Yue said while beaming at the three of them .
“What’s the use of those three hours?”
“Of course it’s useful . ” Sima You Yue fluttered earnestly, “These three hours would mean nothing to a person who doesn’t have the antidote, but for those without the cure, yet simply refused to buy it, it would be useful . At the very least, it would let them hold on for three hours . ”
Everyone was speechless . Did she actually just say that?
“Don’t think that this is rare, there are many who will be like that . ” Sima You Yue said, “They might treat it casually in the beginning, but once they’re really on death’s door, they will regret making the wrong choice . I’m giving them a chance to regret . It will be useful in helping them to regret later on . ”
“What you say does make a bit of sense . ” Tang Yan said .
“What do you mean it makes a bit of sense? This makes sense from the start!” Sima You Yue said, “After speaking so much, are you going to buy it or not?”
“Of course you have to buy it . Do you expect me to give it to you for free?” Sima You Yue rolled her eyes at He Feng, “I didn’t just pick this medicine up from the ground, and it didn’t fall from the sky . Of course it costs money!”
“That’s right, we’re not running a charity . ” Little Seven agreed, “Based on the fact that we are acquaintances, we’ll give you a discount . One guard pill for a hundred middle ranked crystal crystals . The antidote for a thousand middle ranked crystals . ”
“A thousand middle ranked crystals? So expensive! Why don’t you just rob me?” Tang Yan cried out .
“How is that expensive?” Sima You Yue said, “Without needing to mention how rare and precious this antidote is, which is already worth that price, we have to talk about how it’s a secret . This pill can save your life . You can buy a second chance at life with just a thousand middle ranked crystals . How valuable is that! Or do you feel like your lives aren’t even worth those few crystals?”
“Eh… . ”
It seemed like she did make sense .
Sima You Yue saw that they were at a loss as she continued to explain, “That’s why my price, for your guys, isn’t high at all! How about it? Are you going to buy it or not?”
Her earnest appearance really looked like her eyes had turned into dollar signs .
“Then if I only want to buy the Guard Pill, do I only need to spend a hundred middle ranked crystals?” He Feng asked .
“Yes, you only need a hundred of them . However, if you buy it only when you’ve been stung by the golden scorpion, then the price would be double . One pill would go for two thousand crystals . ”
He Feng and Tang Yan almost spat the tea out of their mouths . As the tea landed in the fire, the fire released sputtering sounds .
“This is really a rip off!”
“No, you’re wrong . ” Sima You Yue said, “This is merely demand and supply . The prices rises along with the need . Initially, you didn’t want to buy it when I advised you to buy it early on . That’s the price when the item hasn’t met a felt need . However, once you’ve been stung, your need for the medicine immediately rises exponentially . That’s why the price is naturally different . ”
“Preposterous!” Tang Yan felt like he was usually good with his words, but he just couldn’t hold up against her every argument .
