Chapter 96: Fainting Due to a Serious Injury
Sima You Ran and the others had no clue about Sima You Yue's pill nor medical abilities so they never expected that this was something she had made herself.
"According to our current pace, we should be able to leave in a few days." Wei Zi Qi started a new topic of conversation.
"Ah, we can finally leave. After staying in the mountain for so long, it feels like we've turned into Spirit Beasts ourselves!" Fatty Qu laughed.
"You look like a barbarian to me, it’s only right for you to remain in this mountain!" Sima You Yue joked.
"What do you mean I’m a savage, hmph hmph, I, this little Lord, am longing for the bustling of our capital world. If I remain on this mountain for half a year to a year, I will definitely go crazy." Fatty Qu said.
"Sigh, you, it’s because your heart is not at peace that Ouyang Fei and Bei Gong Tang would be so much stronger than you." Sima You Yue slapped him on the head as she sighed.
Thinking about how he really was the weakest amongst the five of them, Fatty Qu looked ashamed as he shrugged his shoulders, not refuting what Sima You Yue said. However, he secretly swore in his heart that he definitely couldn’t lag behind Sima You Yue. It was precisely because he made this promise that he became more dedicated in his cultivation later on, increasing it by leaps and bounds.
Their journey was smooth and uneventful. When they encountered a few Spirit Beasts, it wasn’t too much trouble when they relied on the strength of ten over of them.
Three days later, riding on the backs of Spirit Beasts hurrying on their journey, they finally left the Pu Luo Mountain Range.
The Spirit Beasts continued to carry them towards Salt City. Sima You Yue sat on the back of Sima You Ran's Spirit Beast as she turned her head back to gaze at the connecting hill tops under the blanket of the blue sky, her heart filled with emotions.
Bei Gong Tang sat on the back of Wei Zi Qi's Spirit Beast and when they saw Sima You Yue look back, they turned back as well and were also filled with similar feelings.
Nobody ever expected that their expedition this time would cause them to encounter so many things. So many times they brushed past death but they worked together and saved each other, showing care and concern. It caused them, who had initially come together only to fulfil the mission, to turn into a group of true comrades bounded together through life and death.
Sima You Yue saw that Bei Gong Tang and the others had also turned their heads, and she turned her gaze upon at their backs. They happened to turn around and the three of them looked at each other, smiling in understanding.
Sensing their earlier interaction, Ouyang Fei and Fatty Qu looked over as well. Everyone looked at each other and joy was reflected in their tired eyes. A warmth filled each of their hearts, allowing them to find an irreplaceable kind of warmth within this team.
The Spirit Beasts very quickly brought the group of people to Salt City.
When they arrived at Salt City, they kept their Spirit Beasts and directly headed towards the inn that Sima Lie was staying at.
The innkeeper was at the counter counting the money when he heard a few people enter. He raised his head, smiled and said, " Oh, customers, really very sorry but our little inn has already been completely rented out and currently has no vacancies. Do you all want to go to other places to take a look?"
"We came to look for someone." Sima You Ran said.
"Looking for someone? That customer didn’t say that there would be anyone coming to look for them!" The innkeeper said with doubt, "Sorry to the group of you but those people had instructed me before that unless they specifically said so, they were to be undisturbed."
At this moment, a few guards came downstairs. When they saw Sima You Ran and the others, the quickened their steps and came down, walking towards and bowing, saying "Third Young Master, Fourth Young Master, Fifth Young Master, you all are finally here."
"Shao Ling, where's Grandfather?" Sima You Ran asked.
"The Master is upstairs, we were just preparing to go back to the Imperial Capital. I came down to check out of our rooms." Shao Ling replied.
Shao Ling was the personal bodyguard that followed Sima Lie. Seeing that his expression was off , Sima You Yue asked, " Could it be that something happened to Grandfather"
Shao Ling didn’t think that Sima You Yue would be so sensitive and guess it in a moment. He was stunned for a while before he said, "It's true. The General has gotten injured and we are preparing to bring him back to the Imperial Capital to look for Great Master Shi."
"Go back to look for him? That means that Grandfather must be seriously injured?" Sima You Yue's heart was in shock, "What happened to Grandfather?"
"We are unsure of it ourselves. The General didn’t let us follow him when he went out yesterday. After that, he returned this morning with serious injuries and has already been unconscious for half a day. The medical doctors that we brought were at their wits end and it was useless when we called for Pill Masters as well. That’s why we planned on going to the Imperial Capital to look for Great Master Shi. Shao Ling replied.
"Don't check out yet, I’m going to take a look at Grandfather first." After Sima You Yue finished speaking, she ran upstairs.
"Shao Ling, get the innkeeper to arrange rooms for everyone." Sima You Ran ran upstairs as well after he finished speaking.
Sima You Le didn’t say anything as he dashed upstairs after them.
Shao Ling didn’t know why Sima You Yue didn’t let them check out, but since Sima You Yue had instructed it, he turned towards and the innkeeper and said, "Arrange rooms for everyone."
He headed upstairs as well after speaking.
Sima You Yue didn’t ask which room Sima Lie was in. When she arrived upstairs, she simply ran towards the room that was guarded heavily by guards.
"Fifth Young Master." The guards were all shocked when they saw Sima You Yue and wondered what he was doing here. However, Sima You Yue didn’t spend any time on them and directly pushed open the door and entered.
Sima You Ran and Sima You Le came upstairs and nodded towards the guards before hurriedly entering the room.
This room was precisely the same that Sima You Yue had rented before. She entered the room and saw Sima Lie lying down on the bed.
She ran over and saw that Sima Lie's eyes were shut, his eyebrows furrowed today’s and his lips were constantly trembling as if he was in a lot of pain. There was a black qi hovering above him and looked poisonous at a glance
She quickly grabbed into Sima Lie's hand and took his pulse.
When Sima You Ran and Sima You Le saw Sima You Yue like this, they were stunned. Seeing Sima You Yue take his pulse, they forgot that she had no medical abilities for a moment and opened their mouth to ask, "You Yue, how is Grandfather?"
Sima You Yue didn’t say anything. After taking his pulse, she put Sima Lie's hand down, saying, "There is poison wreaking havoc in Grandfather's body. However, it’s not the usual kind of poison."
Sima You Yue was puzzled. She observed his body for quite a while when she suddenly pulled at his outer robe, revealing his pitch-black chest.
"What, what is this?" Sima You Le cried out in surprise when he saw the thing on Sima Lie's chest.
Furthermore, Mo Sha, who had been recovering his soul under the Golden Snake Fruit Tree, suddenly opened his eyes as they flashed with suspicion.
"So it turns out to be this!" Sima You Yue saw the black qi around Sima Lie's chest and took a deep breath; her face was incomparably solemn.
"You Yue, this…?" Sima You Ran looked at Sima You Yue with confusion.
"I kind of know it, I read about it before in a book." Sima You Yue said.
"Then do you know how to save Grandfather? If you can’t then we will immediately take a Teleportation Array to the capital." Sima You Le said .
"It's too late ." Sima You Yue shook her head, "It takes a day to take the Teleportation Array to the capital. If the poisonous air within Grandfather is not purged, he will die in half a day."
"What did you say?!"
Sima You Ran and Sima you Le had lost their wits when they heard what Sima You Yue said. It was Sima You Ran who quickly reacted as he held Sima You Yue by her shoulders and said, "Fifth Bro, since you know what this is, do you know how to counter it?"
