Chapter 340: Antidote

Mu Qinghe glanced at him coldly and with warning.

Jian Fengchi ignored him and smiled flippantly. “Even I can tell, can’t you? This pair of eyes is really…”

“Jian Fengchi.” Mu Qinghe’s voice sounded like it was mixed with ice shards.

Jian Fengchi finally restrained himself and shrugged. “Okay, I won’t say it anymore.” Even though he was talking to Mu Qinghe, his gaze was glued to Chu Liuyue. Accurately speaking, it was her face.

“May I know your name?” Jian Fengchi was tall and handsome. When his pair of cold eyes seriously stared at someone, they looked like the vast ocean, which made people fall in love devotedly.

Chu Liuyue couldn’t remember how many women he had won over with his looks. The entire Tianling Dynasty knew what type of person Jian Fengchi was, but there were still countless women who would pounce at him just to get him to look at them. However, he had never walked through the garden and was innocent.

Chu Liuyue had never understood how he had rejected all those women but still got them to be so devoted to him.

Chu Liuyue tried hard to control her urge to punch the man in front of her as her lips curved up into a perfectly polite smile. “Chu Liuyue.”

“Oh…” Jian Fengchi’s eyes lit up as he looked at Mu Qinghe with deeper meaning and dragged his voice as he said, “…What a good name.”

Chu Liuyue was always too lazy to bother with him, but she had no choice now that they had different identities. “Thank you for your praise, Young Master Jian. I’m very grateful that you came all the way here to help out.”

Jian Fengchi still smiled radiantly, but he was confused. Usually, women would start blushing, and their hearts would rapidly beat when they saw him. They would also reveal faces of surprise and appreciation. However, the expression of the young woman in front of him didn’t seem to change since the moment he met her.

This isn’t natural… No wonder she could convince Mu Qinghe to get me to help. If it weren’t for a special reason, I do not think that Mu Qinghe would spend so much effort to get me to come over.

“It’s nothing much. It’s my honor to help a beauty.”

Chu Liuyue secretly rolled her eyes. Originally, she thought many things would change after a year had passed, but it now seemed like Jian Fengchi maintained his flippant character pretty well.

“Then… Lieutenant Mu, Young Master Jian, please head in.” Chu Liuyue didn’t want to talk to them for too long, so she directly invited them into the room.

“Lead the way,” said Mu Qinghe.

Chu Liuyue didn’t insist and walked ahead.

Looking at her back view, Jian Fengchi nudged Mu Qinghe’s elbow and whispered, “I think I know why you invited me over.”

Mu Qinghe’s expression was as cold and hard as usual, and his gaze was fixed in front. He clearly didn’t intend to bother with Jian Fengchi.

But Jian Fengchi didn’t care about his cold attitude as the smile on his face became even more arrogant. “Why are you angry? I didn’t even say who she looks like.”

Mu Qinghe paused in his tracks. “If you don’t want the five-colored Yuan Stone, you can just continue talking, or you can go back.”

Jian Fengchi’s smile froze. “I was just cracking a joke. Why so serious? Okay, okay. I promise I won’t bring this up again, okay?”

As he talked, he walked forward and thought that this person’s temper was getting worse.

Chu Liuyue acted as if she couldn’t hear what the two people were talking about.

When they reached the door, Mu Hongyu and Ji Chang were already waiting. Both of them were shocked to see that Jian Fengchi was so young.

Ji Chang was doing fine, but Mu Hongyu was straightforward, and the words ‘can he do it’ was written all over her face.

Jian Fengchi looked at Mu Hongyu with much interest. “This lady here, you don’t seem like you trust me very much?”

Mu Hongyu didn’t feel awkward at all and honestly said, “I was indeed thinking that.”

Jian Fengchi was originally waiting for Mu Hongyu’s polite words, so he didn’t expect her to admit it so honestly. Thus, the teasing words were immediately stuck in his throat.

“But since Lieutenant Mu invited you over, you must be a capable heavenly doctor!”

Jian Fengchi then felt much better and smiled arrogantly. “Miss, when you want to praise someone next time, you can’t pause in the middle for too long.”

Seeing that the other party had strong backing, Mu Hongyu obediently nodded, but she thought to herself: Why is this guy’s smile so… weird?

Chu Liuyue briefly introduced the few of them before she directly directed the conversation to the Princess Consort. “Lieutenant Mu, Young Master Jian, this is the Princess Consort, and she’s the person I wish you could help, Young Master Jian.”

The Princess Consort smiled weakly. “I’m so sorry. You two came here with much difficulty, but I can’t even get out of bed.”

Jian Fengchi squinted his eyes slightly. “The Princess Consort seems to be poisoned…”

Prince Ping Jiang’s wife slightly widened her eyes. “Young Master Jian, you’re indeed capable. You can already guess that I’m poisoned even before you took my pulse.”

Jian Fengchi raised his brows. I’d be too useless if I couldn’t even tell this.

Mu Hongyu was very emotional as she hurriedly made way for Jian Fengchi to take her mother’s pulse. “Young Master Jian, please—”

As she spoke, she walked to Chu Liuyue and whispered, “People from the Tianling Dynasty are indeed different! All those heavenly doctors that saw my mother in the past couldn’t tell that she was poisoned before they took her pulse!”

Chu Liuyue nodded. Even though Jian Fengchi’s personality was so-so, his standard was decent. If not, he couldn’t be so arrogant.

Jian Fengchi took out a handkerchief and placed it on the Princess Consort’s wrist before placing his long fingers on it.

Mu Hongyu hesitated for a while and couldn’t help but add, “I initially thought he was just… meh, but he seems different.”

Chu Liuyue met with her gaze. For some reason, she felt that Mu Hongyu was going to say that he wasn’t good. However, she still heaved a huge sigh of relief upon seeing that Mu Hongyu wasn’t charmed by Jian Fengchi like the other girls had been.

She didn’t want Mu Hongyu to mess with this man.

Jian Fengchi raised his brows slightly. It seems like they don’t know that I can still hear them clearly even though they’re whispering, right?

Then, he focused his gaze.

The few people in the room looked at him. They all quietened down upon seeing the change in his facial expression.

Mu Hongyu held Chu Liuyue’s hands as she couldn’t hide her worry.

Chu Liuyue patted the back of her hand lightly.

The Princess Consort laid in bed weakly. Even though her eyes were dark, one could still vaguely see a tinge of hope.

Chu Liuyue suddenly thought of something as her gaze turned toward Ji Chang at the side.

At this point, both of his hands held each other in front, and his eyes stared straight at Jian Fengchi as if he was very nervous.

Chu Liuyue could even see that he licked his dry lips, and he looked very tense and worried.

Jian Fengchi let go of the Princess Consort’s hand.

Ji Chang was the first to ask, “Young Master Jian, do you have a way to remove the poison in the Princess Consort’s body?”
