Suddenly, the sound of a snake spitting venom violently could be heard. A brightly coloured snake slithered out from within the grass and spat its bloodthirsty tongue as it stared at them.
When they saw the poisonous snake that had slithered out, they were shocked and looked at Feng Jiu in a new light. She had pulled Bi San back so suddenly, how did she know that there was a poisonous snake there? Her reaction was faster than any one of them.
“Let’s look for the antidote.”
Lei Xiao and a few others walked forwards, some with swords in their hands, while others held branches in their hands. It was easy enough for them to handle a few poisonous snakes with their cultivation levels.
“There is a herb plant with a red tip on its leaf next to the tree, that is the antidote.” She didn’t step forward but gave them instructions to pick the antidote instead.
A few of them walked up and chopped the snake in half and the other snakes slithered away. After they pushed the grass aside with branches and checked the area, they found that there were no more poisonous snakes. Only then did they step up and picked the herb.
“Chew the leaves and then swallow them and also apply some of the chewed up leaves onto your hands. Your hands should be fine after the time it takes to burn an incense.” Feng Jiu said.
Bi San did as he was told while the others sat under a tree and rested. After the time it took to burn an incense, his condition appeared to have improved, and the redness and swelling on his hands had also disappeared. He was secretly impressed.
The unremarkable looking herb plant had such a magical effect.
“Can this herb plant cure other poisons?” Lin Xi who was beside him asked. He thought that if it could cure other poisons then they should pick some more now just in case of emergencies.
Feng Jiu couldn’t help but laughed upon hearing this: “How can it? Where on earth does a herb plant that can cure all poisons exist? Moreover, this isn’t even considered a spirit herb, it doesn’t have much use.”
“You have medical knowledge.” Lei Xiao looked at Feng Jiu and said. When he had asked the question earlier, the young boy didn’t reply. Now, it wasn’t so much a question as it was a statement of fact.
“I know a little.” She replied with a humble smile.
Lei Xiao looked around and when he saw that there was no one around, he lowered his voice and asked: “Do you know how to get rid of the poison in our body? Is there an antidote?”
If they could cure the poison within their bodies, they wouldn’t need to remain under the control of the people from the Shadow Night Palace. As long as they got a chance, they could leave this place. However, it was problematic with the poison still within their bodies.
When the people nearby overheard, their hearts lifted slightly and they couldn’t help but look at Feng Jiu nervously. Yes! If this young boy could cure their bodies of the poison…
However, almost as soon as this thought entered their heads, they shook their heads secretly. How could this young boy possibly know the antidote? Wasn’t he also poisoned? The poison in their bodies activated once every half a month and if they didn’t take the antidote they would definitely die.
“No, I don’t.” She shook her head.
A few people sighed, unable to hide their disappointment, but yet they realised it was also quite obvious. How could anyone be able to easily cure this sort of poison the Ghost Elder had concocted? How old was this young boy? It was normal that he didn’t know how to cure the poison.
“Enough, we have rested for a while now. It’s time to get going. We have to leave this forest within three days!” Lei Xiao said as he led them away.
The breath of death permeated through the forest. Maybe the others didn’t notice it, but Feng Jiu did. There were more people in the forest now. Moreover, there were now Celestial Strong Exponents that had appeared secretly. However, although those people had infiltrated the forest, they didn’t attack them.
