1857 Stare At
San San’s expression changed.
The so-called Essence Dissipating Pill was an extremely poisonous pill. After taking this pill, it wouldn’t hurt the person’s life, but it would cause the cultivator to be unable to continue cultivating, and they could only be trapped at their current cultivation level.
For cultivators, this was even more painful than death.
Besides, this Essence Dissipating Pill would be activated once every month. When the poison spread, the person’s entire body would be in immense pain, and they were better off dead.
Only by taking the antidote regularly would the person be relieved of the pain. However, this so-called antidote couldn’t completely rid the poison. This also meant that once one took the Essence Dissipating Pill, their life was basically over.
Even though it didn’t claim their lives, it used an even longer and more painful method to torture and threaten them.
“Deputy Sect Master, I’m afraid this isn’t suitable, right? The Essence Dissipating Pill—”
Before he finished, Mo Yun’s eyes turned cold. “Boss San, I gave you face, but don’t be too overboard. You should know where you stand.”
A chill ran down San San’s spine.
Chu Liuyue suddenly said, “I’m willing to take the Essence Dissipating Pill.”
San San hurriedly glanced at his Master. “are you sure?”
Chu Liuyue nodded. It’s just an… Essence Dissipating Pill. What’s there to worry about?
Seeing how calm she was, San San then relaxed.
Mo Yun took out a jade bottle and threw it over.
San San hurriedly caught it, opened it, and saw that there were indeed two Essence Dissipating Pills inside. He hesitated for a moment before passing the bottle to Chu Liuyue.
Chu Liuyue poured the pills out without hesitation and took one for herself as she passed the other to Rong Xiu.
Seeing the slim and white hand that was suddenly outstretched before him and the green Essence Dissipating Pill quietly lying on it, Rong Xiu raised his brows slightly. I wonder if my wife is really magnanimous or if she’s too confident in me. She just gave me such a drug with no hesitation…
The corner of his lips undetectably curled up as he ate that pill.
Seeing that the two of them had already taken the Essence Dissipating Pill, San San turned around to look at Mo Yun. “Deputy Sect Master, can… this do?”
Mo Yun then nodded. San San can’t be killed. Since he wants to protect the two of them, I will temporarily leave them alive. I believe that they won’t dare to leak this incident casually.
“Okay, that’s it for today. Mo Lin, follow me.” As Mo Yun spoke, he planned to go to Blue Peak personally again.
Seeing that they didn’t plan to ask him to follow again, San San hesitated for a moment before asking, “Since this incident has ended, then… we’ll bid farewell first and not disturb any longer…”
Mo Yun lightly said, “What’s the hurry? Boss San, you got injured this time partially because you had to help us. Why don’t you just recuperate for two days and go back when you’re better? Coincidentally, these two people are here, and they can take care of you.”
San San’s heart sank. He wanted to say something else, but Mo Yun didn’t care and directly left.
Mo Lin stood up, wiped away the blood from the corner of his mouth, and hurriedly followed.
“This—” Seeing the insistent backs, San San swallowed his remaining words. This time, we probably have to stay here for a period of time until the problem at Blue Peak is really solved… However, it was easy to say this but hard to do! Given the previous scenario… Even if Mo Yun Goes there personally, he won’t be able to settle it himself.
People quickly walked over from the side. “Boss San, go ahead—”
San San was helpless and could only follow. “Let’s go.”
San San was arranged to stay in a courtyard not far away from Mo Yun’s. Chu Liuyue and Rong Xiu were naturally trapped here as well.
The courtyard wasn’t big, but there were people outside guarding this area, and they would patrol the path from time to time.
They strictly treated them as criminals.
Inside the room, San San heard the noise outside and sighed again. “They directly grounded us here…”
As he spoke, he looked up at Chu Liuyue and Rong Xiu. “Master, Your Highness, what should we do now?”
When he came in, he had already set up the barrier. After confirming that nobody outside could hear his voice, he then spoke.
However, Chu Liuyue looked relaxed as she sized up the room. “Why are you afraid? Didn’t they ask us to rest here properly? I think this place is pretty decent, and it is even more elegant than my Yue Manor. Don’t you like it, San San?”
San San had a bitter expression on his face. “Master, stop teasing me! How could I be in the mood now!?”
It was precisely because Yue Manor couldn’t compare to this place that he didn’t have the guts.
The Black Sword Sect held great power here. No matter how stupid he was, he knew when to be discreet. Besides, even if a mountain of gold was placed before him, he couldn’t be happy—his life was hanging by a thin thread!
“Are you okay after eating the Essence Dissipating Pill just now? And His Highness—” San San reproached himself. “It’s all my fault for being too useless…”
“It’s nothing.” Chu Liuyue nonchalantly shook her head as the corner of her lips curled up slightly. I have eaten things even more poisonous than the Essence Dissipating Pill, so it isn’t something to be worried about. As for Rong Xiu… His skills and trump cards are only stronger and not weaker than mine, so there is nothing to worry about.
Noticing her expression, Rong Xiu couldn’t help but laugh. “Yue’er, you’re really not worried about me at all…”
“If I don’t even have this bit of confidence, it’ll be overboard.” Chu Liuyue blinked. Of course, I understand my own man the best.
Upon hearing this, Rong Xiu thought deeply and felt that it made sense. He then raised his brows slightly and leaned against the chair in a seemingly smiling manner. “It’s really hard to make Yue’er worry for me.”
Chu Liuyue shrugged. “It’s sometimes very frustrating that my husband is too amazing.”
San San, who was ignored, was speechless. What kind of situation are we in? The two of you are still in the mood to flirt?! Could I trouble you to think about this passer-by who is very worried and nervous about you!?
Seeing San San’s aggrieved gaze, Chu Liuyue finally comforted him kindly, “Why are you so nervous? You’re the Black Sword Sect’s key to treasures. They won’t do anything to you.”
San San said upsettingly, “I’m worried about you, Master!”
Chu Liuyue turned and glanced at him. “Worried about us? San San, don’t you think that’s rather unnecessary?”
San San almost could not catch his breath.
Chu Liuyue smiled and said, “Don’t worry. When we were playing around here, the Black Sword Sect’s shadow hadn’t even appeared. Why would we be scared by their formation?”
Hearing her say this, San San finally relaxed a little but still felt faintly apprehensive. “But Master… it’s no longer a few years ago… This is the Black Sword Sect’s residence. Our every single move is right before their eyes—”
“At the same time, isn’t their every action right in front of us too?” Chu Liuyue raised her brows, laughed lightly, and interrupted him.
San San was dazed. “You’re saying…”
“I don’t mean anything else. It’s not too late to wait for them to come back from Blue Peak.” Chu Liuyue stroked her chin. “They had long set their eyes on Blue Peak?”
