Chapter 206: Beg Me for the Antidote
“Right, right, right! Eldest Miss, how is Great Master Dongfang?” Elder Chen and Elder Xiao hurriedly asked.
“Great Master Dongfang is inflicted with a very rare poison. This poison was made from the Bloodthirsty Patriarch’s blood essence and the Ice Snow Spider King’s poison. At the moment, I have no way of curing it.” Then, Ye Jiuge added, “The Ice Snow Spider King’s poison can only be obtained from the Bloodthirsty Sect. Dongfang Que was previously afflicted with it.”
When the crowd heard this, a commotion immediately arose.
“Eldest Miss Ye, since you can recognize this poison, you must have a way to cure it. We will agree to all of your requests so long as you tell us,” Elder Chen pleaded, his heart torn with anxiety.
“Yes. Eldest Miss Ye, not only is Great Master Dongfang the lord of Medicine Refinery City, but he is also the only Rank Six Alchemist in the Lei Kingdom. If anything were to happen to him, there would be an uproar,” Elder Xiao begged piteously.
If Great Master Dongfang were to pass away, their Medicine Refinery City would also be done for.
“Although I don’t have a way to cure Great Master Dongfang’s poison, I can help bring him some relief,” Ye Jiuge said slowly.
“Eldest Miss Ye, please tell us more.” Both Elder Chen’s and Elder Xiao’s eyes lit up at once.
“However, this solution to relieve his condition is not with me but with my companions. Last night, you shouted that you wanted to kill them. I fear that they won’t dare come.” It was impossible for Ye Jiuge to not hold a grudge against her boneheaded teammates for endangering her last night.
“Eldest Miss Ye, we were instigated by the crafty scoundrel and wrongly blamed you. You are open-minded. Please forgive us for it!”
“Indeed. Eldest Miss Ye, we are willing to make amends to apologize for our mistake.”
“Eldest Miss Ye, Great Master Dongfang never suspected you!”
There was a lively discussion with everybody talking at once as they tried to apologize.
“There is no use, even if you beg me. I don’t have the solution with me.” Ye Jiuge rose. Her cold gaze swept everyone in the room as she said unemotionally, “Think of a way to invite my companions back here. I will only treat Great Master Dongfang when they are back.”
“Ye Jiuge! Do you dare to treat Imperial Uncle’s life as a joke? Aren’t you afraid that he will blame you in the future?” barked the Crown Prince.
“You should be worried about yourself instead!” Ye Jiuge looked at the Crown Prince as though she were looking at a dead man.
“You…” The Crown Prince was about to reprimand her again, but Elder Chen stopped him and said, “It is our fault, and it is only natural for us to make amends and apologize. Eldest Miss Ye, please rest assured. We will sincerely invite your companions back to save Great Master Dongfang.”
“I will go and instruct someone to draft an Imperial Notice and announce the Eldest Miss and her companion’s contributions to Medicine Refinery City.”
“That’s right. Then, let’s put a banner on the city gates to apologize. We will do anything to please them so long as they are willing to forgive us.”
“Let’s not be all talk and no action. Someone should bring a bramble and ask for punishment!”
“Right, right, right. Bring a bramble and ask for punishment.”
Both Elder Chen and Elder Xiao nodded hurriedly.
“The idea of bringing a bramble and asking for punishment is a good one. However, it depends on who does it.” Ye Jiuge’s gaze landed on the Crown Prince, and the meaning of her words was evident.
“How dare you! I am the Crown Prince of the Lei Kingdom. Who dares to tell me to bring a bramble and ask for punishment?” the Crown Prince snapped indignantly.
“Your Highness, are you not aware of the current situation? Why are you still putting on airs as the Crown Prince?”
The Crown Prince had not expected both Elder Chen and Elder Xiao to be unafraid of his authority. They straightened up their necks and roared, “If you had not led the wolf into the house, then Great Master Dongfang would never have been harmed by the Sorcerers. Let us tell you this, bringing a bramble and asking for punishment would be a light sentence for you. If anything were to happen to Great Master Dongfang, you better be prepared to chop off your head to see the Emperor!”
The Crown Prince trembled with anger, but he knew that Elder Chen and Elder Xiao were right.
His Father had many sons. If he were to die, there would be many other candidates for the position of the Crown Prince.
However, his Imperial Uncle was the only Rank Six Alchemist in the entire Lei Kingdom. It would be devastating for the country if anything happened to him.
“Alright. To save Imperial Uncle, I am willing to bring a bramble and ask for punishment.” The Crown Prince could submit or stand tall as required, so he immediately bowed down.
Elder Chen and Elder Xiao’s expressions improved, and they praised the Crown Prince, “That’s right. When Great Master Dongfang wakes up, we will tell him what you have done for him.”
“Many thanks!” The Crown Prince performed a Fist and Palm Salute. Suddenly, he felt that bringing a bramble and asking for punishment was not a bad idea. At least it allowed him to make up for his mistake.
“There’s no time to lose. Everyone, please get to it!” Ye Jiuge had already decided to go and watch the bustling scene.
Elder Chen, Elder Xiao, and the rest acted fast. Quickly, the Imperial Notice, the banner, as well as the bramble, were prepared.
The Imperial Notice was pasted in the city’s great streets and small alleys alike, and there were even soldiers on the streets to inform the citizens.
Everyone, including the Crown Prince, had a thorny shrub tied behind them. Holding the banner, they marched majestically towards the city gates.
Meanwhile, on a small hill outside the Medicine Refinery City, Bai Songling watched the gates closely and racked his brain for an idea to infiltrate that city to save the Eldest Miss.
“Should I go in and take a look?” Ye Yu said as he approached Bai Songling.
“Forget it. Your injury has yet to recover, and it will be useless, even if you can enter. What if you fall into a trap again? Furthermore, Ziyang still needs you to take care of him!” Bai Songling shook his head.
He was not familiar with Luo Tian and Jun Yichen, and he felt embarrassed to ask them to take care of Wan Ziyang.
The Treasure-hunting Scorpion squeaked and waved its pincers. It wished to volunteer to go into the city and have a look at the situation.
However, nobody could understand its beast-speak, making it a hero without a place to display his prowess.
“Look! Something is happening on the city walls.” Luo Tian started to rise. He was intently watching the wall.
“It looks like a banner.” Bai Songling had noticed it as well. He nervously said, “These guys are not trying to threaten us again, are they?”
“No.” Luo Tian had good eyesight, and he immediately saw the big words written on the banner. He read them out loud, “Eldest Miss Ye and her companions are the saviors of Medicine Refinery City. We deserve ten thousand deaths for mistaking them for the villains, and we have brought brambles to ask for punishment.”
“Hmm, there really is someone carrying a bramble.”
“Aren’t those the Rank Four Alchemists of the Medicine Refinery City, Elder Chen and Elder Xiao?”
“Oh my god! Dongfang Jianming is there as well, is this some trap?”
Bai Songling and the rest began discussing spiritedly. They did not believe these people until Ye Jiuge’s arrogant voice came from the city walls. “They have already apologized for their mistake. Everyone, you can come back now!”
“The Eldest Miss is awesome! How did she manage this?” Bai Songling was stunned.
Because of the Crown Prince and people of Medicine Refinery City, last night, they were treated like stray dogs. However, now, the people of Medicine Refinery City had brought brambles to ask for punishment. It was magical!
“If the Eldest Miss were not awesome, she wouldn’t be our Eldest Miss,” Ye Yu laughed.
“Let’s not lower our guard. We should be careful in case of a trap,” Luo Tian said vigilantly.
Years of being chased down had made him someone who did not easily trust any situation.
“Luo Tian has a point. How about this? Ye Yu, you stay here and take care of Ziyang. The three of us will go and have a look.” Bai Songling took out Liu Yunfei’s Magical Bottomless Bag and passed it to Ye Yu. Just as he was about to nag Ye Yu, Bai Songling heard Ye Jiuge’s voice gradually growing closer. “Why are you guys dillydallying?”
Ye Jiuge did not see Bai Songling and the rest appear, even after waiting for a long time. As such, she leaped down from the city walls to find them.
Zi Shang followed leisurely behind Ye Jiuge, and he appeared in front of Bai Songling and the others with one arm resting on her shoulder.
