Chapter 1651: Ghost Doctor’s Poison
“Punk, what sort of preparations do you need to neutralize the poison?” Blood King asked. He was also astonished that Yi Yun had attained such a high level in laws and body-tempering at such a young age. He was the match of a quasi-Godly Monarch despite being a single-sealed Divine Lord. Not only did he know all sorts of sealing mystic arts, he even knew something as rare as poison theory. He was just too heaven-defying.
“There’s no need for all that. All I need is a quiet place.”
“Alright, let’s return first. I’ll definitely not let the Luo King’s machinations against me go unanswered!” Blood King said coldly.
In the Heaven Fey Ancient Ruins, Fey Thearchs were not to engage in fratricidal conflict. Although he knew it was the Luo King that had machinated all of this, it would be difficult to deal with the Luo King without actual evidence.
“Senior Blood King, pretend that you are unaware of this matter. I have my plans. Also, this matter must not be divulged by any one of us here. If it’s possible, please swear on the Heavenly Dao.”
Yi Yun’s words were, in fact, directed at Yuchi Huo and Rain Numinous.
Yuchi Huo also understood his intentions. He immediately said, “I was the one who liaised with Heretic Hands Ghost Doctor. I nearly harmed His Majesty and Her Highness Soft Clouds. I deserve death. If this news were to leak, no matter how trivial, I’ll be worse than a swine and deserve having my soul extracted and marrow refined. My Fey core will shatter and I’ll be left with no descendants, never to rise up again.”
In order to avoid suspicion, Yuchi Huo’s swear was sufficiently vicious on himself.
Rain Numinous naturally made the vow as well. In consideration of the duo’s feelings, Lin Xintong, Jiang Xiaorou, and Shan Ling made the vow as well.
“When we return to Heaven Fey City, act oblivious to what has just happened. Senior Blood King, make sure not to express any animosity toward the Luo King. If my guess is right, Heretic Hands Ghost Doctor will not be leaving Heaven Fey City for an extended period of time. We will still have an opportunity.”
“Oh?” Blood King was taken aback. If he read between the lines, Yi Yun’s intent was to exact vengeance on the Heretic Hands Ghost Doctor!
Heretic Hands was a Ghost Thearch. Dealing with him was easier said than done. Furthermore, he was in cahoots with the Luo King.
“Young Master Lin, why are you certain that Heretic Hands Ghost Doctor will not leave Heaven Fey City?” Yuchi Huo asked.
“Because of Jiang Yuchan!” Yi Yun said confidently. “Jiang Yuchan is severely injured and in need of medical attention. The Luo King has likely paid a huge price to seek the Heretic Hands Ghost Doctor’s help. He will naturally be treating Jiang Yuchan. What the Luo King has done will not only save Jiang Yuchan, it will also destroy me and Sis Xiaorou, and even cause Senior Blood King to sink into oblivion through the Fey Thearch battle. It’s truly killing three birds with one stone.”
“I really have to thank you, Young Master Lin,” said Rain Numinous softly. “However, Heretic Hands Ghost Doctor will leave Heaven Fey City once he heals Jiang Yuchan, right?”
Yi Yun shook his head. “I left those injuries on Jiang Yuchan myself. It won’t be that easily treated.”
“Oh?” Upon hearing Yi Yun’s words, Rain Numinous was taken aback. He was that confident?
Heretic Hands Ghost Doctor was a medical genius in the Chaos Heavens. Yet, Yi Yun had made his claim with utmost certainty.
Yi Yun could resolve the Heretic Hands Ghost Doctor’s poison, but the injuries left by Yi Yun in Jiang Yuchan’s body were not that easily treated by Heretic Hands Ghost Doctor?
As a Ghost Thearch, Heretic Hands Ghost Doctor had spent his entire life researching his field. Yet, he would lose to Yi Yun in his domain of expertise?
It sounded unbelievable.
The Blood King gave Yi Yun a deep look. Rou’er’s brother was truly astonishing. He seemed to have endless means available to him. Every time one felt that they had overestimated him, he would shock them in a brand new way.
“It’s truly Rou’er’s blessing to have you as a younger brother,” said the Blood King in a heartfelt manner. “Let’s return to Heaven Fey City first.”
The Blood King took out a mobile cave abode from his interspatial ring as everyone entered.
The mobile abode had flight capabilities, allowing it to fly back to Heaven Fey City.
At that moment, in an independent space of the cave abode, Yi Yun took out the Flying Clouds Flowing Flower and the three Nine Orifices Essence Yang Pills!
Yi Yun was indeed not skilled in poison theory. However, he had some experience when it came to removing poisons. Back in the Fey God Tomb in the ancient battlefield, Yi Yun had met Bai Yueyin for the first time. She had been attacked by the demonic servants!
Those demonic servants used an apocalyptic poison to taint the stone marrow liquid which Bai Yueyin soaked herself in. Yi Yun was a Supremacy back then, and with various means, he helped Bai Yueyin treat the poison.
Even an apocalyptic poison left by Demon Gods could be treated by Yi Yun.
Therefore, Yi Yun was confident that he could do the same with the poison left by Heretic Hands Ghost Doctor!
“Poison Demon, come out! It’s time for work!”
Yi Yun held a green jar and threw Poison Demon out.
The old fellow’s cultivation level was becoming more profound, and all of this was because of its submission to Yi Yun.
Being with the correct owner was very important.
Before Poison Demon appeared, it already knew what it had to do. It looked at the Flying Clouds Flowing Flower and three pills in front of it in a supercilious manner.
“There is no poison in this world that I can’t deal with!”
Poison Demon was a manifestation of a supreme poison. In a particular sense, it represented the laws of poison.
Furthermore, treating poison and removing poison from pills were two different things.
Treating poison required decomposing the poison into its components to slowly understand their effects, so as to concoct a corresponding antidote. It was several times harder than concocting poison!
Many people would naturally believe that such a method was needed to treat the Heretic Hands Ghost Doctor’s formless poison.
However, how could Yi Yun do something so tiresome?
His method was simple and brutal. Suck out the poison directly!
Even if the average person knew of such a simple method, it was completely impossible for them to accomplish it. There was no way to determine which were the poisonous components that the Heretic Hands Ghost Doctor had left behind, much less isolate and extract them.
But to Poison Demon, that was not a problem at all.
It was born out of poison.
When Yi Yun placed the poisoned Flying Clouds Flowing Flower in front of it, Poison Demon took a deep breath and revealed an intoxicated look.
Although Heretic Hands Ghost Doctor’s poison was formless and ordorless, that was only to the average person. To Poison Demon, its odor was extremely rich. It was like a cat catching a whiff of fish, or flies with shit.
“Good! Good stuff!”
Poison Demon nearly salivated. It looked like a drug addict that had been on cold turkey for days, to the point of their eyes turning green, only to suddenly see half a kilogram of its “deliverance” appear before it. The feeling was uplifting.
Without Yi Yun’s instructions, it began sucking at the poison in the Flying Clouds Flowing Flower.
But a few seconds later, Poison Demon’s expression changed. “This poison is formidable!”
After sucking a small portion of the poison into its body, Poison Demon suddenly felt that its vitality was being devoured. That alarmed it. It was born from poison, so how could any poison harm it?
“Cadaveric aura… This poison comes with a cadaveric aura. It’s a power that can corrode life itself. I can be considered to have life, so if I were to consume this poison, I’ll likely have my vitality snuffed out and die.”
Poison Demon originally found the poison unchallenging. However, when it began absorbing the poison, it realized how multifaceted the poison Heretic Hands Ghost Doctor had planted was. It was extremely terrifying.
