Mu Ru Yue frowned.
‘They both fell? What on earth happened a thousand years ago?’
She couldn’t forget how Nangong Zi Feng had called her and Ye Wu Chen Senior Yue and Zi Huang respectively…
‘How was that couple related to us?’
“Master, do you have specific knowledge about the circumstances of those two?”
Wu Yu looked curiously at Mu Ru Yue. This little girl seemed uninterested in most everything. When did she become interested in this?”
“I don’t know much, but I do know that Zi Huang seemed to be a person of the Zi family in the Central Region. I also heard that , the Zi family was the largest power in the Central Region at that time, but Zi Huang and Senior Yue were assassinated while away from the Zi family. As for the rest, I don’t know. Only that, from that day onward, Zi Huang and Senior Yue disappeared from the Central Region.”
Wu Yu sighed as that was really all he knew.
Mu Ru Yue pondered for a bit before nodding, not revealing any trace of her thoughts. “I understand. Master, I will go and prepare some medicine for the young master, so I won’t be accompanying you.”
“Little girl, just do your best.” Wu Yu smiled faintly. No matter what this disciple did, she didn’t want him, her master, to worry for her. However, that instead made him feel rather gloomy…
Mu Ru Yue didn’t speak any further and just casually found a person to lead her to Mu Rong Qing Chu’s living quarters.
Moonlight entered the room illuminating the man’s hair. He stood with both hands behind his back, facing the window. His gaze landed on the courtyard outside his room.
Then, as though he felt the young girl’s arrival, the man smiled faintly and turned around. His gentle and beautiful voice was like a spring wind to the listener, so pleasant to the ear that it could captivate people unknowingly.
Mu Ru Yue was stunned. For some reason, she had a feeling that this man already knew she would come. Could she be mistaken?
“I’m rather certain about treating your illness, but I need to ask you a couple of questions first.”
The man lifted his hand slightly, with a shallow smile on his divinely handsome face. He was obviously cold, but with that smile, he exhibited an immortal-like sight. He was incredibly beautiful.
This ethereal man had such beauty that it seemed surreal.
“Have a seat.”
“No need. I’ll head off once I’ve asked a few questions.” said Mu Ru Yue, shaking her head. “Your attribute is wind, and your body wasn’t very good from the start, then you lost a huge amount of your life force five years ago. If I hadn’t guessed wrongly, could it be that you made contact with a plant called Red Ant Leaf?”
“If you’re referring to a grass that has a red leaf in the shape of an enormous ant, then I have indeed made contact with it five years ago.”
“Then, it’s right.” Mu Ru Yue’s eyes lit up and, with a faint smile, she explained, “That is a Red Ant Leaf, a tremendously poisonous grass which will gradually deplete a human’s life force. There is an Earth Stage Peak Rank pill known as the Nine Tripod Cauldrons Pill that can detoxify that poison, but manufacturing it will require some time.”
Qing Chu smiled calmly, a trace of warmth gradually appeared on his cold face. “I’ll have to trouble you then.”
Mu Ru Yue lifted her gaze to look at Qing Chu, who had an unsurprised expression from the start. With a raise of her brows, she said, “You seem rather uncaring about whether this poison can be removed or not. Previously, you also didn’t show any disappointment when you found out that there might not be a treatment. Even now, you still look just as relaxed.”
“It’s not that I don’t care, but… that I know I won’t die,” Mu Rong Qing Chu said indifferently.
He had already known his fate from the start.
