“Don’t be problematic . Let me examine you . ” Sima You Yue said after struggling for a while .
“I’m fine, there’s no need to check . ” Wu Lingyu didn’t let go of hehr hand . He didn’t want to let her take his pulse .
“You’re afraid that I’ll scold you right? I already took it yesterday, I know how bad your condition is right now!” Sima You Yue said as she glared daggers at him . “Let go of me . Give me your hand!”
Wu Lingyu couldn’t beat her as he sighed and obediently let her take his pulse .
Sima You Yue checked him thoroughly before realising that his condition was even worse than it was yesterday .
“How did you end up in this state?” She retracted her hand and asked with heartache .
“Actually, it’s nothing much…”
“Senior Brother . ” Sima You Yue interrupted his excuses, “Tell me about how you got injured . I want to know . ”
Wu Lingyu watched her for a few seconds before answering, “Okay . ”
Sima You Yue sat still and upright as she prepared to listen to what happened to him back then . Who would have known that he would finish telling the story after a few sentences .
Using his own words, what happened was that, after he went back the last time, the old guy from the Sage Pavilion had called him over for the sake of helping him cultivate his mental strength . He had absorbed his consciousness into his body in an attempt to take over him . However, he had been injured by him and the old thing even came up with excuses like how his mental strength was too strong and so on and so forth .
Although Wu Lingyu said it simply, Sima You Yue could imagine what it was like, and how dangerous that moment really was .
“Then, since you’re out right now, you won’t be going back, right?”
“Not for the time being . That old guy wasn’t lightly injured either . I think he’ll need to go through a period of seclusion for the time being . I’ll be fine as long as he doesn’t come out . ”
“For the time being? So you’ll still have to go back?” Sima You Yue frowned, “Things have already gotten this way, so why are you still going to go back? Are you not afraid that he’ll take over your body?”
“I have things I have yet to finish doing . ” Wu Lingyu said, “He managed to get a foothold this time because my soul is not yet complete . Once my soul is complete, he won’t be the one eating me . I’ll be the one devouring him . ”
“Then you should hurry and fuse with Mo Sha . Mo Sha’s condition has been better lately . ” He wanted to do something without care for his life, so how was she to convince him to give it up? She could only encourage them to fuse together earlier . Then, he’d be safer .
“Mm . ” Wu Lingyu wanted to fuse earlier as well . It was too dangerous the last time . It was also because the old man was too cocky, only then could he fight back . Otherwise, the situation would have been a lot worse .
“How long can you stay out here?”
“One, two years . Three or five years . I don’t know . It depends on the condition of that old man . ” Wu Lingyu said, “As long as he doesn’t come out, I don’t have to go back . ”
“You’ve been out for a long time . Will nobody notice?”
“Just because I’m not there, doesn’t mean the Holy Son isn’t . As long as they find whoever they’re looking for, it’ll be okay . ”
“You found a double?” Sima You Yue was stunned .
“You You’s the smartest!” Wu Lingyu said with a smile .
“You let the body double live in your place while you wander and play around outside . ”
“This way, I’ll have time to accompany you!”
“I don’t need you to accompany me!” Sima You Yue said, “In any case, I’m in the sect . You can’t accompany me . ”
“But aren’t you heading out later?”
“… . . ” How did this guy know that?
“Where You You is, there I will be . ” A certain someone added on .
“Do whatever you want . ” Sima You Yue siad, “in any case, the next part of my plan is to get you and Mo Sha to fuse together . It’ll be better with you here . Once the devil realm has finished its preparations, we can prepare for the fusion . ”
“Then when will we set off?”
“Once you’ve finished healing . Meanwhile, I’ll complete my current task . ”
She still had to help Shi Qiu Shuang with her medicinal bath for ten days . Since she promised, she would not leave halfway .
“You You, I want to eat your home cooked meal…”
For the next few days, Sima You Yue remained here without returning to the sect . She would always take out some time from her day to go to the Memory Restaurant to prepare Shi Qiu Shuang’s medicinal bath . She would spend the remaining time thinking of how to help Wu Lingyu strengthen his body .
Although he was an alchemist as well, with his current condition, a doctor would be better at determining how he could heal faster .
Ten days later .
Shi Qiu Shuang took off her clothing in front of Sima You Yue and entered the wooden bucket . The familiar pain immediately rushed back, but she didn’t react to it like she did the first time .
In the beginning, she wasn’t used to being naked in front of somebody else . After she had been weak for the first two to three days and had to have Sima You yue help her take off her clothes, she was already used to being open in front of Sima You Yue .
“This will be the last time that I will help you with your medicinal bath . ” Sima You Yue said as she added the medicinal juice in .
“You’re leaving?” Shi Qiu Shuang was a little reluctant when she heard the news as she leaned on the side of the wooden bucket and looked at her .
“Mm, I asked the school for a year’s leave, two days ago . ” Sima You Yue used her leg to pull a chair over as she sat down, “The first round of the medicinal bath is done . You won’t have to do this everyday in the future . I’ll give you the method of this medicinal bath later on . Just do as the instructions say . ”
“Didn’t you say that you wouldn’t give this method to just anyone?”
“That’s why I asked your senior brother for a lot of money,” Sima You Yue said with a smile, “Although I don’t know what you’ve gone through, I’m guessing that if it’s something that causes you to want to endure the pain of the medicinal bath, it must be a huge grudge . Since I can earn a large sum of money and help you as well, I’m more than willing to help us both out . ”
“Thank you, You Yue . ” Shi Qiu Shuang said gratefully, “I, Shi Qiu Shuang, do not have many friends . You are my friend from now on!”
“Then you have to take care of me when I head to the inner region in the future . ” Sima You Yue didn’t hold back as she accepted the help .
“Sigh, my name is not well known in the inner regions . If others know that you are my friend, it might bring you trouble instead . ”
“Ya? Then I’ll just secretly be your friend . ”
“… you really are straightforward . ”
“You’re too kind . ” Sima You Yue said with a smile, “It’s better for a person to be a little honest . ”
“I realise that your skin is rather thick . ”
“It’s good to be thick . Helps one resist the cold . ”
“…” It was like Shi Qiu Shuang only knew her now . In the beginning, she thought that she was normal, so why did it seem like the more she knew her, the more different she was from her first impression?
“When do you plan to leave?” She asked .
“I’ll set off the moment I’m back home . Time is tight . ” Sima You Yue said, “Your body just regenerated, so you shouldn’t wear thin clothes for now . You should recuperate for two more months before returning . ”
Shi Qiu Shuang initially thought of heading back once You Yue left, but it seemed like it wasn’t possible now .
She had to wait another two months! Who knew how that dog couple would be like by then . Two months . She could afford to wait!
“No matter what you want to do when you return, you should not attempt the impossible . Don’t die before I reach the inner regions and waste my precious medicinal ingredients . Understand?”
“Oh right, didn’t you say that you would compensate me? I’m lacking in cash recently and need a lot, a lot of money . If you want to compensate me, give me money . The amount doesn’t matter, the more the merrier . ”
