The Awakened 13223 Drug (2)

Ling Chen’s recovery rate was peerless. In ‘Hell’, no matter how serious his injuries were, he had always been able to heal incredibly quickly, and there wouldn’t even be any scars left. As such, in ‘Hell’, he and Eve were like monsters to all the others. Ling Chen’s recovery rate was simply incomprehensible, and could not be explained by Science or Medicine.
In just two days, all of Ling Chen’s external wounds had healed, leaving not even a single mark. The only indication that he had been in a life-and-death duel was that his skin was still a bit pale. Shui Ruo finally stopped worrying, but stayed by his side, waiting for him to wake up. Two days had passed, but Ling Chen showed no signs of awaking. This was because the toll on his mental energy was no less than the damage sustained by his body.
Early in the morning, when Tian Tian woke up, she saw that Shui Ruo was still sitting beside Ling Chen, gazing at his face. Seeing that Tian Tian had woken up, she warmly smiled, “Tian Tian, you’re awake. Big sister will go make breakfast soon.”
Tian Tian knew that Shui Ruo had gone yet another night without sleeping. So far, she had stayed beside Ling Chen for a whole two days and two nights, and would not leave his side unless she absolutely had to. Seeing this, Tian Tian’s heart ached as she cried out, “Big sister, please get some rest… You haven’t slept in such a long time, and you’ll get sick if you keep going like this. We’ll take good care of big brother, and if he wakes up we’ll immediately let you know, alright?”
Shui Ruo knew that Tian Tian was worried about her, and she patted her back as she gently shook her head, “Without seeing big brother wake up, I won’t be able to fall asleep… don’t worry, I’m not tired at all. I’ll make some porridge while you have a shower.”
Just as Shui Ruo stood up, her vision suddenly darkened, and she fell sideways. If it wasn’t for the wall, she would have crashed onto the floor. Tian Tian quickly ran over to support her, as she cried out, “Big sister, are you alright? What happened?”
“I’m alright, it’s just that I’ve been sitting down for too long. I felt a bit dizzy,” Shui Ruo said as she smiled, “Tian Tian, I’ll have to trouble you to look after big brother while I’m cooking.”
After going two days and two nights without resting, Shui Ruo was not in very good shape. However, she was determined to stay by Ling Chen’s side until he recovered. Tian Tian could only obediently nod, as she watched Shui Ruo leave the room.
Shui Ruo’s body felt like it was weighed down by something heavy, and she couldn’t muster up much strength. She hadn’t experienced this feeling ever since she got rid of the Isrock Disease. Moreover, her head also felt slightly dizzy. Perhaps it was because she hadn’t slept in a long time, and both her body and mind were incredibly tired, so Shui Ruo didn’t mind it too much. After walking into the kitchen, a piercing pain came from her chest, and she pressed one hand against her chest and the other against her mouth as she coughed. After coughing for a long time, she took her hand away from her mouth and saw that her hand… was covered with black blood. She looked at her hand in shock as her vision became a bit hazy.
Mystic Moon world, Yan Huang Alliance
“Young Master, two pieces of good news!”
Just as Long Tian Yun logged on, Flame Shadow immediately came over to speak to him.
“Speak.” Long Tian Yun replied.
Flame Shadow immediately reported, “The first is that there are only 3 days of protection left for Heart’s Dream, and we have found their headquarterss. They haven’t found a proper place for it yet, so it’s still in a small house in the Northern Residential Area. The Guild Sign should be there. That place doesn’t have any defences, so it should be incredibly easy to destroy it.”
“Very good.” Long Tian Yun nodded in satisfaction. He would not allow anyone to sit on top of the Yan Huang Alliance. Even if he had to hurt Yun Meng Xin, he wouldn’t show any mercy, “Ling Tian’s not an idiot, so he might have something hidden up his sleeve. Make adequate preparations, and destroy it as soon as their protection runs out!”
“Roger.” Flame Shadow nodded, as he continued to speak, “The second piece of good news is sure to make young master happy… we’ve already discovered Ling Tian’s real life identity, as well as where he is residing.”
Long Tian Yun’s eyes narrowed as he suddenly stood up and asked, “Have you confirmed this?”
“We’re 100% certain.” Flame Shadow confidently replied, “The evidence that it’s Ling Tian is irrefutable.”
Flame Shadow immediately sent a photo from his communication device to Long Tian Yun. There were three people in this photo, and Flame Shadow explained, “This person is called Ling Chen and this girl is called Ling Shui Ruo, and is supposedly Ling Chen’s little sister. Two years ago, they moved from Zhong Zhou to Beijing, in order to look for a way to cure Ling Shui Ruo’s Isrock Disease. Their parents died two years ago from the Isrock Disease. This small girl’s name is Ling Tian Tian, and she’s allegedly a relative from Zhong Zhou. They’re currently living in Number 12, Tian Yuan District. All of our information corroborates, and his surname is even ‘Ling’, which I’m sure is no coincidence.”
“Any conclusive evidence?” Long Tian Yun asked.
“There’s quite a lot,” Flame Shadow replied, “We found that place because two days ago, there were people who called the police about strangers and strange cars appearing at that District, so we heard about that place by chance. We found that there was a family living there that seemed to match what we were looking for, so we did an in-depth investigation. We discovered something strange though- Ling Chen brought his sister to Beijing to look for a way to cure her Isrock Disease, but everyone said that recently, his sister has been quite well, and looks completely healthy.
“We received information from Ling Shui Ruo’s doctor, and according to her, Ling Shui Ruo did indeed have the Isrock Disease, and it had even spread to her inner organs. However, she used the 13223 drug, and was temporarily cured. To our knowledge, the only ones within China with the 13223 drug is the Yun family. I also found video footage of Yun Feng going to the Tian Yuan District on the day Mystic Moon opened. The house he went into was house number 12.”
Long Tian Yun: “……”
“Moreover, based on this we deduced that this was the reason Ling Tian has been helping Yun Meng Xin. If not for the 13223 drug that Yun Feng gave him, he would have no reason to help Yun Meng Xin so much. The relationship between the Yun siblings is quite deep, and it wouldn’t be surprising at all for Yun Feng to help Yun Meng Xin in such a way. The rumour that Ling Tian was helping Yun Meng Xin in order to woo her was just a rumour made up to cover up the real reason. Furthermore, Ling Tian and his siblings have always lived alone, but there were suddenly many strangers arriving in the past few days. The only possibility is that something big had happened. This correlates with Ling Tian and his two sisters not being online for the past few days. The princesses of the Xiao and Su family have been online, but they seem to be quite worried about something. This is enough to prove Ling Tian’s real life identity.”
Long Tian Yun silently listened to Flame Shadow’s report. After Flame Shadow stopped speaking, Long Tian Yun’s eyes narrowed as he drummed on the table with his fingers, thinking to himself. He suddenly spoke, “Have you investigated the backgrounds of the strangers who suddenly appeared?”
Flame Shadow shook his head, “Those people have excellent counter-espionage skills, so in order not to alert them, we decided not to take any action.”
Long Tian Yun slowly stood up and he coldly smiled, “Very good. Looks like his real life identity isn’t so simple either, and he has capable people supporting him as well. However, unless he’s stupid, he wouldn’t have made mistakes like that, and would have concealed those people around him. Thus, the only possibility is that something happened to him in real life; something big… that means now is the perfect time to strike.”
Flame Shadow looked at Long Tian Yun as he asked, “Young master, do you mean…?”
“No matter who Ling Tian is, he must die… today!!”
Flame Shadow quickly nodded, “I understand. Before midnight tonight, young master will receive the good news!”
Everyone knew that Long Tian Yun completely and utterly hated Ling Tian. Now that he knew Ling Tian’s real life identity, he was going to make sure that Ling Tian was quickly sent to the underworld. Now was the perfect opportunity to make this into reality!
For breakfast, Shui Ruo only ate a small bowl of porridge, and couldn’t eat anymore. She told Tian Tian to eat up, then returned to the bedroom and sat next to Ling Chen. She was so focused on him that she didn’t even notice when other people entered the room and stood next to her.
Seeing Shui Ruo like this, the cold aura around Mu Bing Yao began to thaw. She felt quite complicated towards Shui Ruo- she had become the most important person to Ling Chen, and yet Mu Bing Yao was unable to hate her or even be jealous. Instead, she actually cared about her and wanted to protect her. Perhaps this was Shui Ruo’s charm… the charm that had caused Ling Chen to want to protect her with his life, and to be willing to give up everything for her.
“Don’t worry, like they said, he’ll wake up by today at the latest.” Mu Bing Yao softly said. As she spoke, her eyebrows shot up when she saw Shui Ruo’s face. It was incredibly pale and sickly!
