Not long later, Leng Hua followed Leng Shuang back to the courtyard . When he saw their Mistress pacing back and forth in the courtyard, he murmured slightly and the two people looked at each other before walking forwards .
"Mistress . " Leng Hua called out and looked at her asking: "Why did you call for me?"
"Come here . " When she saw him, she pulled him over to sit down and took out the elixir: "Eat this elixir and let me see what happens . "
"Yes . "
There was no questioning, no doubt, anxiety or worry . As soon as she said the words, he didn't care what the elixir was, and swallowed it not minding being a guinea pig .
Soon after Leng Hua had eaten the elixir, cold sweat formed on his forehead as he took a few breaths . His whole body tightened up and his hands were twisted together tightly, as if he were restraining something .
Although Leng Shuang who was watching was a little worried, she too hadn't said anything as she knew that their Mistress wouldn't hurt her younger brother .
In the end, he couldn't restrain the tearing pain that coursed through his body . He bounced off the stool and rolled back and forth on the ground as he cried out in pain . Leng Shuang looked on distressed and was about to step forward but was stopped by Feng Jiu .
"No pain no gain . "
She looked at Leng Hua and observed his reaction . She watched as he cried out in pain on the ground, as his sweat drenched his robes . About an hour later, the pain subsided, but by then he had already fainted from the severe pain . At this time, a black liquid seeped out from his body accompanied by a foul smell .
"Take him back to his bedroom . Get someone to give him a wash and when he wakes up, bring him to see me . " Feng Jiu instructed .
"Yes . "
Leng Shuang responded as she looked at her unconscious younger brother on the ground . She stepped forward to help her brother up, she didn't even mind that the horrible stench on his body touching her . As she watched them leave, Feng Jiu touched her chin and looked at her messy appearance, then went back to her courtyard and got someone to draw a bath for her .
Two hours later, when she had emerged from her bath, she told the kitchen staff to cook some dishes for her to eat . She had nearly finished eating when she saw Leng Shuang accompanying Leng Hua who had changed, coming in .
"Mistress . " They said .
She glanced at him from top to bottom and said: "Tell me how you feel after taking the elixir . "
"Yes . "
Leng Hua responded: "Earlier on, there was some heat in my abdomen, it started off warm, and spread through my body like fire and permeated every vein in my body . My meridians seemed to be torn apart by the flame-laden airflow and then re-melded back together . The pain was so intense I could barely breathe . I don't know what happened after I fainted . My body felt really weird after I woke up . I felt like I was being washed in fresh water, it felt really comfortable . "
Feng Jiu took out the spirit plate that measured spirit roots from space and signaled: "Come, I will check for you . "
The brother and sister were dumbfounded when they heard this and stared at her blankly .
"Mistress, I don't have spirit roots right? We've measured it in the past . " Leng Hua said to her . They had measured in the past and knew that it was impossible to cultivate, that's why Mistress taught him Tai Chi to keep fit and protect himself .
"That was in the past, you've eaten my Five Elements Pill, the rebuilding of meridians has changed your body and you can now cultivate immortality . But I have to measure and find out what kind of spiritual root you have first . "
