Chapter 99: Treating a Patient
Mo Sha nodded his head. When he saw the claw shape on Sima Lie's chest, he signalled for her to let him eat the Ultimate Sovereign Pill and then to keep the needles that were on his body.
Sima You Yue did what he said and took out the Ultimate Sovereign Pill, placing it in his mouth. It was only after seeing him swallow the pill that she kept the needles before retreating to one side.
Mo Sha stretched out his right hand and placed it on Sima Lie's chest, as a circle of black fog slowly dispersed from his palm.
Sima You Yue stared at him anxiously as she didn’t know how he was going to expel the Devil Qi from Sima Lie's body.
Mo Sha really did as he pleased. The Devil Qi from Sima Lie's body acted as if it had met its natural enemy and tumbled about chaotically. The six-toed claws were as if alive as they began to move incessantly.
Sima You Yue was stunned by the events happening in front of her. She initially thought that it was some simple Devil Qi and never expected that it would actually be alive.
Seeing the Devil Claw fight back, Mo Sha snorted coldly as he increased his strength and that Devil Claw was unceremoniously and unwillingly dragged out from Sima Lie's body.
As the Devil Claws left Sima Lie's body, they released high pitched squeals that sounded similar to eat squeaks.
"Just a mere little six-toed devil mouse, still hoping in vain to take root here and challenge me!" The Devil Qi in Mo Sha's hand caught hold of the Devil Claw as a single gaze caused it to shake like a leaf.
Mo Sha used a bit of strength and that Devil Claw was transformed into a light black mist and was completely engulfed by the black mist in his hand.
"Done just like this?" Sima You Yue asked as she watched Mo Sha retrieve his own Devil Qi.
Mo Sha nodded as he teleported back into the Spirit Pearl.
Sima You Yue turned around and helped Sima Lie take his pulse. She felt that his body had been eroded by the Devil Qi by quite a bit. If they had simply expelled the Devil Qi, he would definitely have forfeited quite a bit of his strength.
However, it was good that they had the Ultimate Sovereign Pill which slowly recovered the areas in his body that had been eroded away. She reckoned that he wouldn’t have received much damage to his strength by the time they waited for him to regain consciousness .
When she had confirmed that there was nothing wrong with Sima Lie, Sima You Yue's anxious heart gradually calmed down. She came to the door, took a deep breath, opened it and smiled at the anxious people who were waiting outside for her.
"Third Brother, Fourth Brother, it’s done."
Sima You Le was anxiously pacing around the room. When he saw Sima You Yue come out, he dashed in front and grabbed hold of her shoulders, asking, "Fifth Bro, Grandfather is okay?"
"Luckily, I did not fail my mission." Sima You Yue smiled as she stepped out of the way for Sima You Ran and Sima You Le who dashed straight in. It was only after they saw that the black qi had already disappeared before they calmed down.
"Fifth Bro, this time is really all thanks to you." Sima You Le patted Sima You Yue on the shoulders as he said.
'I just happened to chance upon it in an ancient book." Sima You Yue said.
"No matter what you said, this is really all due to your efforts." Sima You Ran said, " When will Grandfather regain consciousness?"
"Grandfather’s body has been wounded by that Devil Creature and is recovering right now he should wake up tomorrow."
"Devil Creature?" Sima You Ran knitted his eyebrows. How could a Devil Creature appear here?
"Mm. According to what I know, Devil Creatures are all in the Devil Realm. I don’t know how Grandfather encountered a Devil Creature and even got wounded." Sima You Yue said, "We have to wait for Grandfather to wake up before finding out."
"Mm. Wait for Grandfather to wake up before asking him." Sima You Ran nodded.
"Third Brother, Fourth Brother, you all have taken care of Grandfather for a whole day, you both should rest. You can just leave it to me."
"Okay, then take care of Grandfather well." After an entire day of anxiousness and worry, Sima You Le was truly feeling exhausted.
"We’ll just be next door. Remember to call us when Grandfather wakes up." Sima You Ran exhorted.
"Mm, relax, I will." Sima You Yue said at Sima Lie's bedside and waved her hands at the two of them.
Sima You Le left first, followed by Sima You Ran. When the closed the door, the turned back to look and saw that Sima You Yue was sitting at the bedside, watching Sima Lie. She carefully helped him to wear his clothes as the corners of her lips curved slightly upwards.
When she was the only one left in the house, she contacted Mo Sha who was in the Spirit Pearl.
"Mo Sha, what kind of Devil Creature is the six-toed mouse?"
"It is merely the lowest ranked Devil Beast in the whole Devil Realm." Mo Sha said indifferently.
" Since it’s a Devil Creature, why did it appear in Dong Chen?"
"There is definitely something strange about this." Mo Sha pondered about it for a moment, saying, "Devil Creatures live their entire lives in the Devil Realm. More accurately, they are confined to the Devil Realm. Now that they have appeared here, it just shows that they have found an exit and have wandered here.
"What if large groups of people from the Devil Clan come?" Sima You Yue thought of how even the lowest levelled six-toed mouse could cause Sima Lie to end up this way and didn’t even dare of think of what would happen if large groups of people from the Devil Clan came over. It would be likely that the entirety of the living creatures on the continent would be completely exterminated!
"You can relax, what you’re thinking of won’t happen. At the very least, not right now." Mo Sha sneered when he sensed what Sima You Yue thought.
"Why?" Sima You Yue asked.
"Didn't I just tell you? The Devil Clan has been confined to the Devil Realm. Since its being confined, how would large groups of people from the Devil Clan leave? Even if there was an exit, the Devil Clan would never choose to come to the Yi Lin continent."
"Because of the Heavenly Law."
Talking about the Heavenly Law again!
This was the second time that Sima You Yue had heard about this but she had no idea what it was.
"Still don’t understand." Sima You Yue shook her head.
"I'll explain it like this." Mo Sha said, " Because the standard of the Yi Lin continent is too low and it’s strength is too weak, for the sake of intercontinental peace, those things are restricted to the higher ranked places and can’t come to this place to wreak havoc. The Heavenly Law will naturally limit their powers, allowing them to only display powers equivalent to the highest power here.
"Taking a Saint Ranked person for example, he will only be able to to display powers of a Spirit Warrior, correct?" Sima You Yue asked.
"Right." Mo Sha said. "Because it’s small and weak, it is protected by Heavenly Law. Furthermore, the barrier between Devil Realm and Yi Lin continent is the thickest. As a result, those guys won’t release these guys and choose to come here. Even if they did come, they wouldn’t reap much benefits. They won’t waste their time."
Although it made her slightly upset that he said this place was the weakest one, hearing this meant she didn’t have to worry that the Devil Clan would come here and hurt her family.
"Furthermore, the Devil Clan is not as powerful as you imagine." Mo Sha said after pondering for a while.
"Grandfather is a Spirit Saint but couldn’t defeat a single normal Devil beast from the Devil Realm, isn't it considered powerful?" Sima You Yue didn’t believe it.
"These six-toed mice have their own special traits. Furthermore, your Grandfather probably only fell prey to it because he received a sneak attack. Also, it is only you all of the Light attribute that happen to clash with them. If you met other Devil Beasts, your grandfather would not be without the ability to battle.
Grandfather was sneak attacked? Sima You Yue looked at Sima Lie. What did he go out to do yesterday that even without talking about how he received such a serious injury, he had been sneak attacked by a Devil Creature. Since people from the Devil Realm couldn’t come to this world, who was it that was using these Six-toed Mice and why did they want to hurt Grandfather?
"Grandfather, you have to wake up quickly…"
