Mo Zhangkuang would never have expected that the person who secretly let Granny Yao go was actually Mo Suiyun whom he and Mo Suixin had nurtured and trusted as a dependable aide!
This was even more shocking than the traitor being Mo Fengying!
Mo Suiyun was still looking down at the ground with a respectful look on his face. No one would suspect that he was a traitor if they saw his honest and obedient image!
But he did betray Mo Kuang!
Mo Suiyun explained, “There are two reasons. Firstly, I don’t like how you treat the medicine man like a beast. Secondly…”
Mo Suiyun looked up and swept his gaze across all the elders and Mo Zhangkuang. He sneered and said with an inscrutable tone, “Do you really think that I don’t know how my father passed away?”
Mo Suiyun’s father was called Mo Rukuang. He was the elder who had accidentally revealed the secrets of the Mo Clan to a good friend many years ago when he was drunk.
Mo Rukuang was kicked out of the elder’s seating area because he had revealed the Mo Clan’s secret. The next month, he was bitten to death by a poisonous snake in his own medicine field.
Mo Suiyun had long realized that his father’s death was full of holes, but he couldn’t find any evidence, nor did he know who had the motive to harm his father.
Even though Mo Suiyun was full of doubts about his father’s death, he couldn’t find any evidence. It wasn’t until Han Zhan entered the clan and told him the truth about Mo Rukuang being kicked out of the elder’s seating area that Mo Suiyun dared to believe that his father’s death wasn’t an accident, but a big conspiracy.
The one who killed Mo Rukuang was not anyone else, but the elderly head whom Mo Suiyun respected as an elder!
Everything was because of the medicine man!
Mo Suiyun used to be an abandoned baby in a neighboring village and was almost eaten by a wild wolf. He was carried back by Mo Rukuang when he went out to pick herbs. The person Mo Suiyun respected and loved the most in his life was his father.
His father was killed because of the medicine man. How could Mo Suiyun not hate him?
He looked up, a teasing, strange smile on his lips. “Don’t you treasure the medicine man? Then I’ll destroy your most precious possession.”
Releasing the last medicine man in this world was the greatest revenge against Mo Zhangkuang and the others!
After Mo Zhangkuang and the group of elders heard Mo Suiyun’s explanation, their faces turned ashen. They hated that they couldn’t tear Mo Suiyun apart with their bare hands. Foreigners were foreigners. They couldn’t be raised well. His father was an unclear person, and so was he.
At this moment, Granny Yao, who was sitting on the ground, suddenly started coughing crazily. The moment she coughed, she spat out more phlegm, which had traces of blood.
Granny Yao’s body had long become a rotten piece of wood, and her insides had long decayed. If it wasn’t for Mo Zhangkuang forcefully using medicine to hang her breath, she would have long died.
Song Fei quickly squatted down to hold Granny Yao. Granny Yao coughed for a while before she felt better. Granny Yao looked at the stars above her head. She knew that she was about to die, so she stretched out her hand towards Song Ci and Song Fei.
Both sisters put their hands in Granny Yao’s.
Granny Yao squeezed their hands and said, “Children, granny will be leaving soon. Promise me that after I die, you must take my corpse away and bury me together with Mo Qingkuang!”
Granny Yao was already 76 years old this year. Mo Qingkuang had only appeared for a short three to four years in her long life.
Recalling Mo Qingkuang, the only thing Granny Yao could remember was that proud and unrestrained genius. In her memories, Mo Qingkuang was so handsome, charming and elegant.
To Nangong Yingying, Mo Qingkuang was a magnificent scene in the mortal world, a spring breeze in March, where her heart lay.
Granny Yao found it hard to calm down. She was very regretful that she couldn’t raise the child together with Mo Qingkuang and grow old together.
Looking at the sky full of stars above her head, Granny Yao couldn’t help but think of the night when Mo Qingkuang escaped with her from the Mo Family. That night, the moonlight was enchanting and it was spring. When the two of them were avoiding the patrolling of the Mo Family, Mo Qingkuang once pulled her to lie down in a medicinal field.
Above their heads, the sky was filled with stars. Mo Qingkuang saw her staring blankly at the stars and asked her, “Are the stars beautiful?”
Nangong Yingying answered honestly, “I’ve seen it a few times when I was very young.” When she was ten years old, her identity as a medicine man was discovered. After she was brought back to the Mo Family, she was never released again.
At that time, the Mo family did not imprison them as harshly as they did now. They could still walk freely in the back mountain’s prison. Medicine people’s lives were very boring. In order to help them get rid of their loneliness, Mo Qingkuang’s father would regularly send them some books for them to read and pass time.
Nangong Yingying would write a letter on the fifteenth of every month. She would fold them into planes and throw them out through the small windows at the end of every floor.
When Mo Qingkuang came to the back mountain to pick herbs, he accidentally picked up her paper airplane.
Through the letters, Mo Qingkuang understood the loneliness and despair in Nangong Yingying’s heart.
He was unable to meet Nangong Yingying personally, so he would always secretly hide the envelope in the lunchbox that was delivered to the medicine men.
The two of them became close friends through letters.
Later on, when Mo Qingkuang grew up, his father brought three outstanding youths from his clan to the back mountain. This was the first time he revealed the existence of the medicine man for them.
When Mo Qingkuang first saw Nangong Yingying, he had already guessed her identity and recognized her as his pen pal.
That was why when he first saw the medicine man, Mo Qingkuang asked such a question—
Is the medicine man medicine or human?
His father had told him that the medicine man was the medicine man, but there was a balance in his heart. He did not agree with his father’s view!
The medicine man was clearly human. They looked like humans and had human thoughts. How could they be medicine!
From the first time he met Nangong Yingying, Mo Qingkuang had been planning to rescue the medicine men.
Later on, he really did it.
When he heard Nangong Yingying say that she had not seen a star for many years, Mo Qingkuang told her, “When the weather gets warmer, I’ll bring you to Tibet. The stars there are especially beautiful.”
Most importantly, the Mo Family would never be able to find them.
Later on, Mo Qingkuang did bring Nangong Yingying to Tibet. They gave birth to Mo Sang there and lived a happy and carefree life for a period of time. However, the good times did not last long. The Mo Clan still found them and captured Nangong Yingying.
After that farewell, Nangong Yingying had never seen Mo Qingkuang again.
Nangong Yingying sighed. Song Ci and Song Fei heard Nangong Yingying say, “I miss him a little…”
“I can finally meet frivolous and little Sang Ye…” With that said, Nangong Yingying suddenly opened her mouth and vomited blood.
When Song Ci and her sister saw Nangong Yingying vomiting blood continuously, their expressions changed drastically.
Nangong Yingying shook her head to comfort them. “Don’t cry. I should have left long ago. I’m already very satisfied to be able to see all of you before I die…”
She raised her trembling right hand and pointed at Mo Zhangkuang. She used her last bit of strength to curse him. “Mo Zhangkuang, you will die a horrible death! The honor and reputation of the Mo family that you care about will also be destroyed!”
With that, Nangong Yingying finally took her last breath.
Seeing that Nangong Yingying had died, Mo Zhangkuang couldn’t help but feel pity. He felt pity because he was unable to take Nangong Yingying’s body and heart for himself.
Mo Zhangkuang seemed to have thought of something as his eyes flickered.
He turned back to look at Mo Yang, who was standing in front of the crowd. He said to her, “Mo Yang, do you want to save Fengying? If you do, now is your chance!” He wanted to incite Mo Yang to ask Song Ci for Granny Yao’s heart.
But when Mo Yang heard this, she didn’t react. She just stood there quietly, her brows slightly furrowed as she watched the drama unfold.
Mo Zhangkuang continued, “What? This is the last medicine man. If you let her go, you can forget about finding the medicine man’s heart to save Feng Ying.”
Upon hearing this, Mo Fengying said to her mother, “Mom, don’t listen to Grandpa. I don’t want to live anymore. I don’t want the heart of a medicine man!” 25 years old had a 25 year old way of living, and 25 years old could also lead a wonderful life.
Mo Yang smiled reassuringly at Mo Fengying. “Okay, Mommy will listen to you!”
Hearing that, Mo Zhangkuang was displeased.
Mo Yang took a step forward and looked up at Mo Zhangkuang. She said, “Old Master, stop struggling, take the initiative to tell the people of our Mo family’s secret.”
Mo Zhangkuang said, “Shut your mouth!” Mo Zhangkuang would never admit the crimes the Mo Clan had committed against the medicine man and the Nangong Clan!
Mo Yang couldn’t help but shake his head. “You really won’t give up until you see the coffin.” Mo Yang raised her head to look at the top floor of Shen Si Building. She suddenly said, “Old Master, I’ve already destroyed the pregnancy stabilizing medicine. In the future, there won’t be any medicine man left in this world. And the Mo family will eventually fall.”
Mo Zhangkuang was furious. “How dare you!”
“I dare!” Mo Yang turned around to face the villagers. “Everyone, let me tell you the truth. Medicine men aren’t born with it. Only those who have been nurtured with a special pregnancy stabilizing medicine made by our Mo family can become medicine men.”
“The powerful Nangong family in history was slowly raised into medicine men by the ancestors of the Mo family! The destruction of the Nangong family is closely related to the Mo family!”
“And Ancestor Mo Liansheng!” Mo Yang raised her hand and pointed at the sacred statue in the lobby of Shen Si Building that seemed to be filled with benevolence. She boldly guessed, “The Rejuvenation Pill that Ancestor Mo presented to Son of Heaven back then, the main ingredient was not the heart of some ‘strange beast’, but General Nangong Xian’s heart!”
“The Mo family that has been praised for six hundred years, the ‘Mo family of Sichuan, the sage of the country’, is a complete scam! Mo Liansheng is not a sacred doctor, but a big liar! A big scumbag!”
When these words were spoken, everyone was in an uproar!
“No way! This is impossible, how could our ancestor be that kind of person!”
“How is it impossible! Think about it carefully, isn’t the effect of this medicine man exactly the same as the legendary ‘magical beast’? The ancestor might have discovered the miraculousness of the medicine man and deliberately set up a trap to kill General Nangong Xian in exchange for success and fame. How is this impossible!”
“If it’s true, then our Mo Family has sinned deeply!”
Hearing the denouncement from his people, Mo Zhangkuang could no longer control his emotions. He jumped down from the platform angrily and jumped onto Mo Yang.
Mo Yang’s back was facing the stage. Before she could sense anything amiss, she was pressed down by Mo Zhangkuang.
“You b*tch, die!”
Mo Zhangkuang raised the knife in his hand and slit Mo Yang’s throat. Everything happened so unexpectedly that no one could react.
It was only when a gush of blood spurted from Mo Yang’s neck that everyone snapped back to reality.
Mo Fengying’s legs turned to jelly. “Mom!”
Mo Fengying stumbled down the stage to save her mother.
After Mo Zhangkuang dealt with Mo Yang, he quickly walked up the stage and took a dagger from another elder’s waist.
That elder was shocked and shouted, “Old Master, don’t!”
However, MoZhangkuang was already mad. He raised the knife and looked between Mo Suiyun and Song Ci, as if he couldn’t hear anyone else. In the end, he ran towards Song Ci.
People were always like this. They would only point their knives at the weak and easily bullied.
Song Ci noticed that Mo Kuang was running towards her with a knife. She quickly shouted, “Han Zhan, protect me!”
As soon as Song Ci shouted for Han Zhan, Han Zhan pulled Song Ci behind him. His left fist turned into a palm and easily grabbed Mo Zhangkuang’s arm that was holding the knife.
Han Zhan exerted strength and dislocated Mo Zhangkuang’s right arm, causing his entire arm to be fractured from the shoulder.
His body lost control of his right arm, and the dagger in Mo Kuang’s hand fell weakly to the ground.
Han Zhan let go of Mo Zhangkuang. After kicking him to the ground, he raised his leg and stepped hard on Mo Zhangkuang’s chest.
Mo Zhangkuang fell to the ground and clamored in pain.
Han Zhan looked down at Mo Zhangkuang and couldn’t help but ask, “Who gave you the guts to touch my wife?” He picked up the dagger on the ground and stabbed hard a Mo Zhangkuang’s shoulder, causing some blood to splatter.
Mo Zhangkuang howled in pain.
His screams made one’s scalp tingle.
The elders and citizens watched as Han Zhan stepped on their elderly head and hurt him. No one stood out to seek justice for the elderly head.
Han Zhan bent down again and said to Mo Zhangkuang, “Old Master Mo, we’ve already destroyed the pregnancy stabilizer, and you guys have also been infected by the virus Song Fei specially prepared for you guys that can destroy your brain nerves. Very soon, your memories will become incomplete. In the future, there won’t be any medicine man in this world.”
“Congratulations, the Mo family that has been glorious for 600 years is about to end in your hands…”
Mo Zhangkuang’s eyes widened. “You, you two…” His eyes turned slightly as he looked at Song Ci and Song Fei behind Han Zhan.
It turned out that during this period of time, their headaches were not because of the cold, but because they were infected by Song Fei’s virus! Mo Zhangkuang finally realized what kind of wild wolves were released in this year’s written test!
Zhou Wu also squatted down beside the elderly head. He told the elderly head, “Actually, your Mo Family’s Old Ancestor is really nothing. Do you know that even the pregnancy stabilizing medicine was stolen from my Old Ancestor?”
Zhou Wu chewed on a cigarette. “You must know who Blind Zhou is,” he said.
Of course Mo Zhangkuang knew Blind Zhou. According to the records, Blind Zhou was the best doctor in the capital six hundred years ago. However, after Mo Liansheng saved the Son of Heaven, Blind Zhou retired.
“You’re actually Blind Zhou’s descendant…” Mo Zhangkuang found it funny. Who would have thought that after six hundred years, Blind Zhou’s descendant and Mo Liansheng’s descendants would meet again.
Zhou Wu shook his head and laughed. “Your respected and loved ancestor is not only a big liar, but also a big bandit! With such an evil ancestor, it’s no wonder that there are trash like you.”
“Although our Zhou family’s medical skills are not as good as the Mo family’s, every descendant of our Zhou family is not worse than the Mo family.” Zhou Wu shook the cigarette ash onto Mo Zhangkuang. He stood up and turned to face Mo Liansheng’s statue. He murmured, “Old bandit, the Mo family is about to be destroyed. Are you happy?”
Mo Zhangkuang also realized that the Mo Family was about to be destroyed in his hands. He felt extremely indignant, but he was already old and could no longer stir up any waves.
Mo Zhangkuang suddenly felt a sharp pain in his head. It was a sign of the virus.
Mo Zhangkuang heard his granddaughter crying and shouting for his mother not to die. When he heard the clan members discussing about his ancestor, he suddenly felt tired.
He could not let the Mo Family be destroyed in his hands!
Mo Zhangkuang suddenly pulled out the dagger from his shoulder and stabbed it into his heart.
Seeing this, Han Zhan did not stop him. He looked on disdainfully as Mo Zhangkuang committed suicide.
A coward like him was better off dead.
The elders realized Mo Zhangkuang’s intention to commit suicide and shouted, “Old Master! You can’t!”
The elders were all stunned.
The elderly head actually committed suicide?
When Mo Fengying heard the sound of her grandfather’s suicide, she turned to look at the platform. When she saw her grandfather’s corpse, Mo Fengying’s eyes could not help but redden. Why did it become like this?
Daddy was poisoned to death by Mommy. Mommy was killed by Grandpa. Grandpa killed himself.
In an instant, Mo Fengying became an orphan from the distinguished lady in the Mo family.
Mo Suifeng squatted beside Mo Fengying and whispered to her, “Miss, the family head, Madam, and the elderly head are all gone. We have to count on you for the Mo family.”
Mo Fengying then wiped her tears away.
Yes, although my parents and grandfather were dead, the Mo family was still around. I could not give up on myself. The burden on Mo Fengying’s shoulders suddenly became heavy again.
She stood up and walked to Song Fei and Song Ci.
Song Fei asked, “Talk about what?”
Mo Fengying glanced at Han Zhan and said, “I’ll take the initiative to make a trip to the capital and explain to the people in the capital about the Mo family. In the future, whether the Mo family is disbanded or reorganized will be arranged by the higher-ups. But…”
Mo Fengying turned around and looked at the kind and innocent people below the stage. She said to Song Fei, “Song Fei, I hope that you will do as you promised and cure these innocent people. As for the elders…”
The elders all knew too many secrets about the medicine man and pregnancy stabilizing medicine. They could not leave them alive. Mo Fengying clenched her fists and gritted her teeth. “You can destroy the elders’ memories, but I hope you can spare their lives…”
Mo Fengying’s suggestion coincided with Song Fei and the rest’s initial plan, so Song Fei agreed to Mo Fengying’s request. “Sure.” However, on second thought, Song Fei said, “My sister is a medicine man. If anything happens to my sister, I’ll direct the blame to the Mo family!”
Mo Fengying’s expression froze. She looked at Song Ci and solemnly promised, “I swear on the lives of the entire Mo family that the Mo family will never hurt Song Ci. At the same time, I promise that we will destroy all the medicine related to the medicine man!”
Song Fei looked at Han Zhan. “Do you agree?”
Han Zhan nodded. “Yes, it’s feasible.”
After getting Song Fei and Han Zhan’s affirmation, Mo Fengying turned around and said to the villagers, “Get a few people here. Tie up the elders and lock them up in the back mountain prison. No one is allowed to visit them for the next two days!”
Two days later, these elders’ memories would be completely destroyed. They would become as ignorant as children.
“Mo Suifeng, arrange for a group of people to bury the bodies of the family head, the elderly head, and the family head’s wife.” After a pause, Mo Fengying added, “The headstones of the family head and his wife shouldn’t be placed together.”
Mo Suifeng nodded and went to look for people.
Mo Fengying then turned to look at the chief steward, Mo Suiyun. She asked Mo Suiyun, “What about you? Do you want to continue staying in the clan, or do you have other plans?”
Mo Suiyun raised his head and looked at the dignified building behind him. He lowered his eyes and said, “I will continue to stay in the Mo Clan. Young Lord, please allow me to stay in the rear mountain and take care of these elders.”
Mo Fengying looked at him deeply before nodding. “Sure, but you can’t go see them tomorrow either.”
After Mo Fengying finished instructing them, she turned around and asked Han Zhan and Song Fei, “Are you satisfied with my arrangement?”
Han Zhan said, “We will stay in the valley for two more days. During this time, the West Mountain will be guarded by my men.” In order to ensure that nothing goes wrong, Han Zhan would not allow anyone to enter the West Mountain to meet those elders.
Things like pregnancy stabilizing medicine should be left to rot in the stomachs of the elders.
Mo Fengying agreed.
Han Zhan noticed that Song Ci didn’t say anything. He looked at Song Ci and asked, “Baby Ci, do you have anything else to add?”
Song Ci didn’t say anything.
Only then did Han Zhan and Song Fei notice that Song Ci had been staring at the arrow in a daze.
Han Zhan looked at the bow and realized that the Sun Chasing Arrow was stained with a few drops of Mo Zhangkuang’s blood. Under the moonlight, the Sun Chasing Arrow’s bow arm seemed to be redder, and the bowstring was actually faintly trembling.
It seemed that the blood of the Mo Clan had triggered the reaction of the Sun Chasing Arrow.
Han Zhan looked at this scene in shock. He didn’t dare to imagine that the Sun Chasing Arrow would actually tremble on its own.
Song Ci suddenly put her hand on the bowstring and asked absent-mindedly, “Did you hear that?”
Han Zhan walked over and asked her, “What?”
Song Ci listened closely to the voice in the Chasing Sun Arrow. She said, “I heard a man crying.” That cry was full of remorse, making Song Ci’s heart ache.
This was the first time Song Ci heard a man crying in the Chasing Sun Arrow.
Song Ci slowly squatted down. She got close to the Sun Chasing Arrow and felt a strong sense of unwillingness and hatred.
Influenced by the emotions of the Sun Chasing Arrow, Song Ci held her hand on the bow arm. She suddenly raised it with force and successfully lifted the Sun Chasing Arrow.
In an instant, a red light appeared and a buzzing sound rang out. Everyone seemed to have heard the tragic cry of a woman.
Han Zhan looked at this scene in shock and many thoughts flashed through his mind.
Why was Song Ci able to use this Chasing Sun Arrow!
Mo Fengying and the other Mo clansmen also looked at Song Ci and the Sun Chasing Arrow in her hand in disbelief. Wasn’t the Sun Chasing Arrow unpickable? Why did Song Ci pick it up so easily?
Mo Fengying was so shocked that she cried out, “Song Ci! How did you do it!”
Song Ci didn’t seem to hear Mo Fengying’s words. She held the slightly heavy bow with her left hand and touched the words “Nangong Xian” on the bow arm with her right hand. Song Ci felt an unclear pain in her heart. She couldn’t tell where this pain came from.
Zhou Wu was squatting in a corner. He didn’t find it strange at all to see this. Instead, he looked as if it should happen.
Han Zhan looked at Zhou Wu and then looked at Song Ci. He had a bold guess in his heart.
What was the relationship between Song Ci and Nangong Xian?
Song Ci felt the emotions of the Sun Chasing Arrow. She followed the direction of the Sun Chasing Arrow and turned around to face Shen Si Building.
Song Ci stared at Mo Liansheng’s statue. She thought for a while and suddenly took out a long red arrow from the quiver.
This long arrow was placed together with the bow. Since ancient times, the bow and arrow had always been one. The Chasing Sun Arrow had sealed its spiritual consciousness. Other people could not lift the bow or the long arrow.
Song Ci held the bow with her left hand and pulled the bowstring with the arrow in her right hand. Han Zhan noticed that under Song Ci’s thin layer of clothing, the muscles on her arm suddenly tightened!
The 160-pound bow was very heavy. An adult, muscular man would not be able to pull it without professional system training.
Han Zhan had also practiced before. He could pull the 140-pound bow, but it was still difficult for him to pull the 160-pound bow.
However, the seemingly gentle and weak Song Ci actually succeeded in pulling it away!
The moment Song Ci pulled the bow and arrow, a majestic and terrifying murderous aura erupted from her body!
Her brown eyes were filled with coldness and sternness!
At this moment, Song Ci was so strange and powerful!
Han Zhan’s heart ached when he saw this.
Song Ci aimed at the heart of the statue. After aiming, she suddenly released her right hand, and the red arrow shot out!
Under the moonlight, the long arrow was like a rainbow!
The arrow hit the heart of the statue!
Song Ci put down the Chasing Sun Arrow in her hand. She patted the bow of the Chasing Sun Arrow as if she was comforting it. The resentful bow gradually calmed down under Song Ci’s comforting.
Seeing Song Ci behave so disrespectfully towards Divine Doctor Mo’s statue, those clansmen who hadn’t left yet felt angry.
“Song Ci! That’s our ancestor’s holy statue. You shouldn’t have done that!”
Mo Liansheng was the belief of the Mo family. They refused to believe that Mo Liansheng was a liar. Therefore, when they saw someone destroying the ancestor’s statue, they were naturally furious.
Song Ci acted as if she didn’t hear what they were saying. She just stared at Mo Liansheng’s statue nervously, as if there was something scary hidden inside.
Han Zhan felt Song Ci’s uneasiness. He subconsciously walked behind Song Ci and hugged her shoulders from behind.
Song Ci didn’t move and stared at the statue.
A crack appeared in the middle of the statue.
At this moment, the plaza was extremely quiet. The sound of the statue splitting apart was magnified, and every member of the Mo clan heard it.
When they found that the statue had split open, everyone was silent at first, then they became even more furious. They looked at Song Ci with condemnation!
“Song Ci, look at what you’ve done!”
“Young Master, say something!”
Mo Fengying remained motionless.
In fact, she hadn’t woken up from the fact that Song Ci was able to use the arrow.
More and more cracks appeared on the holy statue, and they grew larger and larger. In the end, the cracks on the holy statue began to crisscross, and it could no longer hold on. It actually collapsed with a bang!
The hard shell at the outermost layer of the holy statue transformed into countless small fragments that fell to the ground. The ground was in a mess, raising a cloud of dust.
“The statue has fallen!”
“Song Ci, compensate our tribe’s holy statue!” The villagers were all very angry. Some even wanted to rush to the high platform to seek an explanation from Song Ci.
At that moment, the flying dust in the building dissipated. Someone with sharp eyes saw something.
Zhou Wu saw the thing and stood up in shock. “What is that!”
Staring at the item inside the statue, even Zhou Wu had an incredulous look on his face.
Hearing Zhou Wu’s exclamation, the villagers also tiptoed to look inside the building.
Everyone clearly saw that there was a pair of white bones hidden in the ancestor’s statue!
The pair of bones leaned against the inner wall of the statue.
One skeleton was tall while the other was short. Judging from the size of the skeleton, it should be a man and a woman. As for the man who was taller, he was still kissing the forehead of the woman in his arms before he died!
