Bao Youlu asked with a smile, “It turns out that the young master knows a bit of medicine too.
May I know which divine physician have you studied under”
Despite his smile, his tone revealed his disdain for Zu An.
Zu An shook his head and said, “I dont have any divine physician mentor.”
Mi Li immediately protested in his mind, “What do I count as then”
“Youre my beautiful big sis empress, not my teacher,” replied Zu An.
“Thats more like it.” Mi Li harrumphed.
Even though Zu An couldnt see her expression, he could totally imagine her lips curling up slightly in glee.
Meanwhile, Qin Wanru was already unhappy with Zu An when the latter had to butt in at a moment ago.
Unable to take it any longer, she exploded in fury.
“If you dont know anything at all, just step aside and keep your mouth shut! Dont waste our time here! Zhongtian, you should quickly head to the neighboring city to look for Ji Dengtu.
No matter what you do, you have to bring him over!”
Our daughters life is at stake here, so Ill make sure to bring him over even if I have to shamelessly beg him.
Ill be leaving the internal affairs here to you then,” replied Chu Zhongtian grimly
Without any hesitation, he flitted out of the room and soon vanished into the night.
Zu An shrugged calmly and walked out too.
Qin Wanru frowned a little upon seeing that, but she quickly turned her attention back to her daughter.
“Why did you come out” asked Mi Li in confusion.
“Theres no way Qin Wanru would trust me no matter what I say, so theres no point wasting my breath there,” replied Zu An.
“You arent going to save your wife anymore” asked Mi Li teasingly.
Zu An was silent for a moment before replying, “Ill think of another way out.”
It was then that a beautiful figure suddenly rushed out and exclaimed, “Brother-in-law, wait a moment!”
Zu An turned around to take a look, only to see that it was Chu Huanzhao.
His face turned a little gentler as he said, “Its you, Huanzhao.”
Chu Huanzhao stared at him intently with her large eyes and asked, “Do you really have a way to save my big sister”
Despite being in a cold war with him earlier on, there was nothing that was more important to her than her big sisters safety.
“I think it should work,” replied Zu An as he recalled the method Mi Li had taught him.
He didnt think that the latter was fooling him.
“What do you mean byI think Will it work or not” asked Chu Huanzhao anxiously.
“Yes, itll work,” replied Zu An affirmatively.
“Very well, Ill talk to my mother about it then.”
Chu Huanzhao returned back to the room, and soon, loud bickering broke out inside.
It was basically Chu Huanzhao insisting on giving Zu An a chance to treat Chu Chuyan and Qin Wanru vehemently rejecting it.
Eventually, Chu Huanzhao ran out with tears in her eyes.
She turned to look at Zu An and said, “Dont worry, Ill make sure that you get a chance to save my big sister!” After that, she ran right into the shadows of the night.
Zu An was perplexed as to what she meant by that.
It was then that Qin Wanru marched out angrily and bellowed, “Just what kind of sorcery did you cast on Huanzhao that shes so sided toward you”
You have successfully trolled Qin Wanru for 678 Rage!
Zu An shrugged in response.
“I dont know what youre talking about.
Huanzhao is already not young anymore and can come to her own judgment.
Youre underestimating your own daughters intelligence.”
“I really dislike your slick tongue.
I dont know how you duped our Chuyan back then, but how dare you try to do the same to our Huanzhao Dont even dream of it!” Qin Wanru pointed a finger at Zu An as she bellowed furiously.
“If I ever find out that youre getting any ideas on the two of my daughters, Ill make sure that you die a terrible death!”
You have successfully trolled Qin Wanru for 777 Rage!
Zu Ans face turned cold.
“Are you done speaking yet”
He was already fed up enough as he was, and this woman still continued prattling on and on, pinning false accusations she dreamed up of on him.
He finally had enough of it.
“Y-you…” Qin Wanru was taken aback.
She didnt think that the subservient drafted son-in-law would actually dare to raise his voice at her.
She was just about to rage once more when a maid suddenly exclaimed from behind, “Madame, the young miss is awake!”
Qin Wanru shot a piercing glare at him.
“Ill settle the score with you afterward!”
After saying her piece, she turned around and rushed back into the room.
Meanwhile, Zu An hesitated a bit but didnt enter.
Instead, he asked softly, “Are you sure that chuyan will be fine for the time being”
“Shes terminally ill, but her condition isnt that bad as to die within the next two days or so,” replied Mi Li.
Zu Ans heart was finally put at ease.
He quickly called Cheng Shouping over and had him gather some medicine he needed from the Chu clans medicine vault.
Even though the Chu clan was pretty useless in many aspects, at the very least, they had an abundance of resources.
Following that, he got a dummy and started revising what Mi Li taught him.
Despite his high aptitude, he had no experience in treating a patient at all.
It was one thing to know some theoretically and another thing to put it into practice.
As such, he felt that there was a need to practice in advance.
“What are you doing” a hoarse voice suddenly sounded out of nowhere.
Shocked, Zu An turned around, only to see Old Mi standing by the doorway.
“Youre here.” Zu An quickly bowed to the other party.
Old Mi glanced at the dummy before asking doubtfully, “Are you learning medicine at the moment”
“I was just a little curious, so I wanted to give it a try,” replied Zu An sheepishly.
“Are you thinking of figuring out a cure for your seal” Old Mi revealed a hideous smile.
“I heard that youre on good terms with Divine Physician Jis daughter, but dont get misled by her.
Your seal cannot be externally removed.
Youre better off focusing on your cultivation so that you can reach Master rank as soon as possible.”
“Youre right, elder.” Zu An had a feeling that he shouldnt reveal the fact that he had already recovered to the other party.
“I heard that you managed to force the young master of the Shi clan back.
It looks like youve stumbled upon a fortuitous encounter in the Ursae Dungeon,” remarked Old Mi curiously.
“I was lucky to find an Evanescent Lotus, which increased by cultivation by a bit,” replied Zu An respectfully.
“Evanescent Lotus!” Old Mis breathing hastened.
“Did you eat it all”
Zu An shook his head and replied, “I gave most of it to Chuyan in order to save her.”
“Foolish!” Old Mi slapped his thigh furiously as he rose to his feet out of agitation.
“Why didnt you take it for yourself”
You have successfully trolled Mi Lianying for 250 Rage!
Zu An was taken aback.
He thought that the other party was angry at him for not bringing the Evanescent Lotus, but it turned out that he was angry because he didnt eat it for himself
He actually cares so much about me… Could I have misunderstood him
“Young miss Chus ki meridians have been destroyed, and her life was hanging on a thread then.
Given that were a couple, I couldnt just leave her to the lurch,” replied Zu An.
“A couple” sneered Old Mi.
“Dont you know better than anyone else what your relationship with her is like Is there anyone in this manor who really treats you as a young master of the Chu clan”
Actually, there is.
At least Chu Huanzhao and Cheng Shouping count, right, thought Zu An.
As for Chu Chuyan, to be honest, he wasnt too sure what she was thinking either.
However, since she had allowed him to do it once, she should have somewhat acknowledged him, right
Old Mi shook his head at Zu Ans naivety and said, “Besides, dont you know full well how your body is like at the moment You cant even do what a man can do, let alone cherish her!”
You have successfully trolled Mi Lianying for 666 Rage!
“…” Zu An.
Bro, arent you being too harsh If it was me in the past, I would surely be angered out of embarrassment.
Youre lucky that Ive fully recovered, or else I would have definitely held a grudge against you over that.
Seeing that Zu An wasnt reacting at all, Old Mi lost his interest in scolding Zu An.
“Forget it, whats done is done.
Theres nothing I can say that can change things anymore.
However, I want you to know that you should prioritize your cultivation.
Everything is transient except for true strength.
Ah, I heard that Wei Hongde has entered the dungeon too.
How is the mission which Ive entrusted you with going”
While keeping his expression steady, Zu An replied, “We met up with one another in the dungeon and I bared myself to him.
Were good friends now.”
I consider him as a friend anyway.
I dont care whether he thinks the same or not.
Old Mis tightly knitted frown finally loosened a little as he said, “Good.
Make sure to keep an eye on his familys movements.
No matter how minor the matter is, make sure to report it back to me.
Also, you mustnt let him know what youre doing.
I believe that someone as sharp-witted as you are should be able to do as much.”
“No problem,” replied Zu An.
Out of curiosity, he asked, “However, what should I be keeping an eye out for”
“Dont ask questions that you shouldnt be asking,” said Old Mi coldly.
His eyes suddenly sharpened, and with a wave of his hand, the Taie Sword flew into his grasp.
Zu An immediately panicked.
He would take the Taie Sword right away, but there was simply too huge of a disparity in their strengths that he dared not to make a move carelessly.
“Its really a heaven grade weapon! Its no wonder why it can slice Shi Kuns sword into two.
It looks like youve made significant gains in the dungeon,” remarked Old Mi as he flicked the blade lightly.
After that, he casually tossed the sword back and said,Dont worry, I wont go so far as to covet your possession.”
Whats yours will eventually become mine anyway, Old Mi thought in his mind.
“Thank you, elder.” Zu An walked Old Mi out before directing a sharp glare at the Taie Sword.
“What happened to your self-respect Why the hell did you fly over as soon as he beckoned for you”
Mi Lis silhouette rose from the blade, revealing a grim look on her face.
“Do you know whats his current cultivation rank”
“What is it” asked Zu An.
He had always been very curious about this.
“Hes at the ninth rank,” said Mi Li with a hint of fear.
“He isnt any weaker than Zhang Han.”
“Ah Hes actually that formidable” Zu An was dumbstruck.
One must know that Chu Zhongtian was known to be the strongest cultivator in Brightmoon City, but even so, he was only at the eighth rank.
Yet, a scrawny gardener on the manor was actually at the ninth rank
However, he soon heaved a sigh of relief and said, “Since you were able to beat Zhang Han up, there should be no need to fear this Old Mi.”
Mi Li looked at Zu An solemnly and said, “You cant compare the two just like that.
I was able to defeat Zhang Han easily because he wanted to die right from the start.
On top of that, Im only a soul at the moment, a severely depleted one at that after having to switch bodies twice.
I wont be a match for him in my current state.
So, I advise you not to offend him.
I have no wish to die together with you.”
“…” Zu An.
Big sis empress, your thighs are supposed to be extremely thick so that I can clutch onto them for safety!
Zu An was just about to continue speaking when he heard Chu Huanzhaos voice from afar.
“Brother-in-law! Quick, follow me.
Well be saving my older sister now!”
A short-haired girl ran to his side, gasping for air.
She seemed to be in a rush, having run all the way here.
Zu An looked at her doubtfully.
“Your mother allowed me to treat your older sister”
“Of course not! However, Ive knocked her out!” Chu Huanzhao innocently revealed an explosive news.
