Chapter 658 – Crafty plots and machinations (9)
Grandmaster Rong Yun, was formerly one of the few Master level Apothecaries on the continent. Recently, news had spread that this Master Apothecary had unexpectedly broken through to Grandmaster Apothecary.
Once this news came out, immediately, the entire continent became fervent.
Grandmaster Rong Yun’s background was extremely mysterious, and he did not belong to any sect. As a result, many sects wished to invite him in so they could rise in prestige.
However, Grandmaster Rong Yun was not only at the summit of refining medicines, but was also strong in martial arts. As for how strong he was, nobody knew.
“When Second Uncle received the news, it said that Grandmaster Rong Yun will arrive in the imperial capital in only a few days. Before he arrives, we must first dispose off that loathsome girl.” Li Yaoxiang coldly snorted.
When Madam Su saw the black-clothed person in front of her, her lips trembled slightly.
After all, she was standing on the weaker side since the beginning when she decided to cooperate with the Jade Lake’s Li family.
“Feed this to him.” the black-clothed person said coldly.
“What is this?” Madam Su’s complexion was aghast, a trace of fear appearing in her heart.
“You should feel assured, he won’t die.” the black-clothed person looked at Madam Su’s deathly white appearance, the corner of his mouth flashing a mocking expression.
“Are you certain there will be no problems?” At this very moment, Madam Su’s heart was somewhat regretful.
She regretted that in a moment of impulse, she had agreed to the Jade Lake’s Li family’s proposal.
From the beginning, they also said that Jingyu would not meet with a mishap, but when she saw Jingyu spat out mouthful of blood over and over. It was as if her entire heart was being gripped tightly.
“Madam Su, now we are on the same boat, you already lost the opportunity to jump ship.” a cold smile flashed through the black-clothed person’s eyes, “This medicine will not kill anybody, however it will force Su Luo to kneel in front of our Li Manor’s gates. Because only the Jade Lake’s Li family has the antidote.”
Madam Su grinded her teeth saying: “Okay!”
The black-clothed person did not lie to her, now she already does not have a way out. She could only brace herself to move forward.
However luckily the the prospects up ahead were bright.
As long as she could eliminate Su Luo that loathsome girl, then Su Manor would return to its former tranquil days. Her children would not be harmed by her.
The black-clothed person, was also the Jade Lake fairy. Her gaze swept a glance at Su Jingyu, who was lying on the bed. The corner of her mouth raised into a mocking arc. She turned around and jump out the window and very quickly disappeared into the night.
Madam Su looked on the bed at Su Jingyu whose complexion had returned to peacefulness, bit her teeth and approached him: “Jingyu, this plan you have also agreed to…..good child, you just need to endure a bit more, and very soon you will be fine…..”
Madam Su pried open Su Jingyu’s mouth, and poured the black liquid medicine inside the porcelain bottle into Su Jingyu’s mouth.
The medicine entered his mouth and for a very long time there was no reaction. Only then did Madam Su feel slightly relieved.
Only after disposing of the porcelain bottle did she return to her room to rest.
Early morning of the second day.
Su Zian had woken up very early. He had finished freshening up and was about to go to morning court. Just at this moment an unexpected bitter yell echoed in Su Manor!
A mournful yelling sound broke the darkness and serenity of dawn. The lamps in the entire Su Manor were light up in succession.
Su Zian was able to discern
that this sound originated from Su Jingyu’s courtyard. How could he even think about morning court. He took large strides to walked towards that courtyard.
When he had walked near, he could smell a burst of stink coming from inside.
In large strides, he step over the doorsteps and saw Su Jingyu currently sitting on the bed with his head lowered and vomiting
Su Zian distressingly walked up with quick steps: “Jingyu, you are awake? How do you feel now?
However, the moment Su JIngyu raised his head, Su Zian with ‘thump thump thump’ sounds retreated three steps. His entire face was colored in astonishment.
Now, Su Jingyu’s face that was still rosy from yesterday.

However now, it was pitch-black, darker than the first night of Lunar New Year’s, like the bottom of a pot.
The stuff that he vomited out, scattered and emitted a horrible stench, it was unbearable and made people dizzy.
Su Jingyu glanced blankly at Su Zian. Afterwards, his eyelids flipped over, and once again, he lost consciousness.
Su Zian’s heart was extremely surprised: “Someone come, quickly go invite Apothecary Leng! Hurry!!!”
“Master, Apothecary Leng, he…….is not easy to invite.” The steward that hurriedly rushed over hesitated and said.
“Blockhead! You might not be able to invite him over, but there is someone who can! Quickly call Su Xi, quickly, ask Su Xi to go and invite him!” Su Zian still remembered, Apothecary Leng regarded Su Xi very favorably. If she were to go and invite him, then he would certainly come.
Su Xi was pulled up by the wet nurse from inside her blankets. She bewilderedly opened her eyes, very puzzled: “Wet nurse, are you saying that Apothecary Leng sees me favorably?”
The wet nurse, in glowing spirits, said: “That’s right, this is exactly what the master said. He said that if Fifth Miss was to invite him, then he would definitely come. Come, Miss, get dressed.”
Su Xi still felt that this was inconceivable: “But, I don’t even know who is Apothecary Leng…..how can I invite him?”
This was the honest truth, however, nobody would believe it.
The wet nurse smilingly said: “Is the Fifth Miss still muddled from sleep? It has already spread throughout the entire manor. Last night, Apothecary Leng coming over was all to the Fifth Miss’s credit.”
“My credit?” Su Xi pointed to her own nose.
“Right, all to the Fifth Miss’s credit. If not, how could Apothecary Leng have come to our manor? Oh, that’s right, according to what the servants heard him say, Apothecary Leng even warned the master, telling him not to treat you badly.”
“Ah?” Su Xi opened her eyes wide until they were huge. Her eyes were full of bewilderment. However, very quickly, within this bewildered expression, a flash of glowing spirits appeared, “Could this be true? Could it be that I am not dreaming?”
“This naturally is real! Come, Miss, quickly make yourself presentable, the Young Master’s illness is very grave.”
Su Xi skeptically said: “Then fine, I will take a trip to Leng Manor, but if I cannot invite him over, then you guys can’t blame me.”
Su Xi freshened herself and got dressed. She hurriedly went to Leng Manor.
Just as her carriage arrived at Leng Manor, she immediately saw an old man in high spirits come out from the door.
In the doorway knelt a whole lot of people, these people, seeing him, all excitedly shouted: “Apothecary Leng, Apothecary Leng, please help!”
However, Apothecary Leng did not even glance sideways, his footsteps moved hurriedly, without stopping the slightest bit.
It was as if his face was shrouded in icy frost, his features were like condensed crystallized ice, appearing to be in a very bad mood.
“Apoth…..” Su Xi’s heart was nervous as she anxiously and frightenedly walked towards Apothecary Leng to make her salute.
Apothecary Leng saw the carriage beside her, and he swept her a sharp glance: “Miss Su?”
“Yes! I, this female, is Su Xi, the fifth of the family. Apothecary Leng, my older brother…….” Su Xi’s words weren’t even finished.
Apothecary Leng waved his hands: “Get in the carriage, let’s go.”
After speaking, without another word, he got into Su Manor’s carriage.
“Huh?” Su Xi’s entire body froze from being distracted.
Wasn’t it said that Apothecary Leng was arrogant to the point of being insufferable? Wasn’t it said that Apothecary Leng saw human life as if it was mustard grass? Wasn’t it said that Apothecary Leng was very, very, very difficult to invite?
She still hadn’t finished speaking and Apothecary Leng had already gotten into Su Manor’s carriage?
Su Xi originally suspected that this Apothecary Leng was a fake, but seeing so many people kneeling on the ground begging him to save a life, how could he be a fake?
“Still not coming into the carriage?” Apothecary Leng’s dignified voice could be heard saying.
“Com-coming.” Su Xi quickly lifted up the corner of her dress and excitedly jumped up into the carriage.
Wet nurse truly did not lie, Apothecary Leng really was treating her favorably!
