Chapter 4 Fragant medicinal bath
After the boiling water melted the herbs and the medicine, he saw the temperature swiftly decrease.
Zong Shou looked on, stunned. Spirit and martial arts dual cultivation was really extraordinary. He had to reevaluate the potential and skill of this girl. Before this, he had greatly underestimated his personal identity.
Hot steam rose. The water within the basin had also been reduced to a suitable temperature. Zong Shou did not hesitate anymore, and nor did he ask anything else. He simply sat down within the basin. He had weak stamina and was thin, which gave one an impression of being feeble. He seemed like a teen that would easily get sick. However, he still had a muscular body.
After he sat down in the medicinal water, Zong Shou could feel something akin to tens of millions of ants biting his skin, and could not help but tense up. This also stimulated his lower body, and it had already risen up without being covered.
When Su Chuxue saw that, her face flushed red. She loosened her clothes. Now, only a thin and translucent veil covered her body. She stepped into the basin and sat down behind him.
Just as he flinched, and his mind started to wander, those thin and long fingertips pressed onto his back. They pressed an acupuncture point; Qizhou, at the center of his back. After pressing and rubbing that point, she slowly expanded the area. Her jade-like hands turned into thousands of afterimages, continuously hitting the various acupuncture points. At those points, a gentle foreign strength helped to guide the seeping medicine into his body all over, guiding it into his limbs and bones.
The current Zong Shou could not help, but have wild thoughts. Slowly, he managed to get rid of them, trying his best to focus on his own body. The techniques of Su Chuxue definitely had some background to them. As for the herbs used in the basin, they were similarly rarely seen precious herbs. Unless one came from a rich family, it was difficult to gather them all up.
Strengthening the muscles, bones, and vessels… this was the first time Zong Shou had felt so much energy since occupying this body ten days ago.
These herbs were really quite effective, since they could reinvigorate and strengthen the foundations. It helped to improve some of his body qualities, strengthening his spirit and vital energy.
However, it did not help to solve the true root of his illness. Instead, it showed signs of making it worse.
Within his body, the dual meridians were swelling up and hurting!
After the time it took to brew tea passed, Su Chuxue’s hands went from fast to slow before finally stopping. Her face was covered in beads of sweat as she panted, “I have already used up all my energy. Young master, soak for a while longer. You can only come out after four hours. Uncle Yin said that this Five Ginseng Bone-Strengthening Soak was something master spent a lot of effort to obtain from a famous physician. Apparently, in just six years, it will be able to help solve your dual meridian problem! It can also strengthen your foundations and improve young master’s body.”

Zong Shou’s brow furrowed. What kind of physician was that? How decrepit and muddleheaded! He only heard Chuxue say with her brows knitted together, “Uncle Yin also mentioned that Young Master should not rush too much. It’s best to take it easy for now. Ten days ago, young master nearly died because you tried to forcefully train internal energy…”
Zong Shou was instantly filled with a feeling of enlightenment. It was just like he had imagined; Zong Shou had not died from a sneak attack. Instead, he had forcefully tried to cultivate internal energy, went too far, and died. As a result, he had occupied this body.
He could not help, but silently shake his head. The thinking path of that so-called famous physician actually was not wrong. The Five Ginseng Bone-Strengthening Soak could strengthen a meridian. The soak helped to target one type of meridian, slowly merging the other coexisting meridian into it. This was the most common solution for such a body type.
It was true that he had dual meridians. However, compared to normal dual meridians, he was slightly different. Not only were both top grade, but they were also closely connected. The former had merged into the latter, and the latter had merged into the former, making it difficult to split them up.
If not, why would he have such a headache? After all, when he was developing the Energy-Directing Technique in his last life, he had studied medicine. In terms of acupuncture, he had even reached the Grandmaster level.
“So it seems like Uncle Yin being hurt greatly in the past few days was because of me? And not because of others?”
Turning around, Zong Shou looked behind him, and his eyes stopped once more. Xu Chuxue’s thin veil had been soaked in water, so her undergarments were partly visible. Her protruding front and bottom were on full display. Long drenched hair, bright red cheeks, snow white skin, and those pair of cat ears; the temptation simply could not be described with words.
He could not help but gulp as he swallowed the words he was about to say out. Within his body, the already powerful vital energy instantly started to rumble and boil, and his breathing even started to quicken.
In the God Emperor world, strength was everything. Even if the strong wanted to kill the weak, no one would care. However, no matter how strong Chuxue was, she was still his maid. It also seemed like she was really close to him. During these few days, she showed much reliance on him and was even attached to him like he…
Zong Shou did not dare to think anymore. He shook his head vigorously to stop those thoughts. He could not help but mock himself in his heart. Zong Shou, Zong Shou, when have you become such an immoral person…
There was nothing wrong with being lustful, but this Xue’er was obviously only thirteen. With the long lives of monsters, she was just an infant at this age.
Su Chuxue, who was standing behind him, seemed to notice his weird expression, and she looked back shyly. Following which, she actually pushed forward those twin peaks, and a pair of huge jade rabbits seemed like they were about to break out of her shirt. Making Zong Shou’s mind run wild once more, she laughed and jumped out of the water, standing to the side and saying, “Master said that Xue’er needs to wait until I am eighteen, training up and breaking the Yin Lock before I can share a room with you. If not, with your body, you probably wouldn’t be able to take it. As for those people, they are just clowns, don’t take them to heart….”
The thin veil on her body was totally wet as it clung tightly to her, giving Zong Shou a feast for his eyes.
However, once those words were said, the water all evaporated, instantly drying up. Su Chuxue had also changed and flew out of the carriage. Like a swallow, she stood on the top of the carriage with an easy backflip and surveyed the area alertly.
When Zong Shou in the carriage heard that, he could not help but be stunned once more. It seemed like this Xue’er and him were not just master and servant. From her words, it seemed like his father of unknown background had chosen her as his concubine.
And also that training up, breaking the Yin Lock, what was that? Was it…
All of a sudden, many different thoughts ran through his mind. He only came back to his senses when he felt an unbearable pain once more; his skin felt like tens of thousands of ants were biting him. His eyes narrowed right away.
Although Su Chuxue always acted happy and optimistic in front of him, the hidden worry in her eyes could not be kept from him. Moreover, she also decided to avoid and not answer his questions and probing.
One could see that the situation that the three of them were in was not a good one…
