Holy shit! Su Su’s eyes suddenly open wide for the sudden revelation.  She turned pale like a ghost then blushes red for a moment. After some time, she calmed down, turned to Mo Yuan with a frown and seriously says, “Mo Yuan, can I ask you something?”

Su Su’s expression was so strange. Her big eyes were staring at him with a sly look as if trying to dig into his heart. He didn’t know what she was going to ask. Mo Yuan inexplicably felt the tension, his heart swells and then he heard it. A could chilly female voice say..

Chapter 19 Courting a Disaster

The vast Loushui Mountain’s Sierra have huge vegetation that grew very dense. Finding a person inside was no different than looking for a needle in a haystack.

It was already late autumn but for some reason, the weather was unusually sultry, the two-person had been looking for a more than an hour. Both were sweating profusely searching around but they could not find a clue. Jin Yan Hen wiped his sweat and said, “Luoshui Mountain so big, looking around like this is not the way .”

Truly this is not the way of searching, looking at the vast forest as huge as an ocean. Lou Chen said,” We will focus first on looking inside the nearby caves.”

If the assassin decides to hide in the mountain, they should find a place to rest. They looked at nearly three to four caves, but then again they did not discover any secret code let alone an assassin. While the two were in hurry to find the next cave, they heard thunderclaps. Jin Yan Hen looked at the sky, the cloud was getting darker, the leaves swaying vigorously due to strong wind, scattering the leaves and rolling the dust with it, the lightning was flashing through the clouds. Staying in the mountain in an open will be too dangerous, “There will be a heavy rain soon and it is too late to go down the hill. Let us find a shelter.”

The weather changed very fast. They already hear the sound of the rain rushing, the pitter patter of the water hitting the leaves of the forest, Lou Chen looked around and say, “ Let’s go this way.”

Jin Yan Hen followed Lou Chen towards the North and after running less than a minute at a distance of two-ten feet they reached a long and narrow area. Yan Hen was surprised. He knew that they once passed this shallow clearing and there will be no place to hide at all. He glanced to see Lou Chen who already proceeded. He followed as she made a little turn to find the cave. Lou Chen remembered their position in the forest, not only that, she also surprisingly easily found the shortest route to the nearest cave.

As the two people rushed inside the mountain as the rain intensified. The rain was so strong, it was as if the whole sky was being poured down. The water did not seem to fall in drops; the intensity was like that buckets of water was being poured down from the sky. Jin Yan Hen smiled to his companion and asked, “Having a photographic memory, how does that feel?”

The smile on his lips suddenly disappeared when Lou Chen whispered back to him,”  Playing silly and a dim wit, how does it that feel?”

Jin Yan Hen‘s smile stiffened, they were standing face-to-face. Lou Chen’s back was facing the level  ground and narrow cliff, he was standing before her.

Someone was not quite at ease in this situation especially when he moved even closer. Lou Chen put out her hand and pushes Jin Yan Hen’s shoulder until he was an arm’s length distance.”What the hell are you doing?”

He looked at her innocently, answered her with a pitiful tone in his voice, ”Covering you from the rain. This rain is a downpour.”

The rain outside was truly big, the level area was long but narrow and area they were hiding wasn’t deep. Together with the mighty strong winds, the raindrop almost hits Yan Hen’s back. Lou Chen was standing on the inner side; she could also feel the rain hitting her face. Lou Chen moved to the right and said,” There’s a space where you can stand beside me.”

“It’s okay. I am already wet anyway.” Jin Yan Hen turned his back from Lou Chen.

By the level area, there were several clusters of wild yam next to the foothill. The leaf blades were large as a tub. Jin Yan Hen caught two of this yam leaves and lifted it high to cover their heads. Lou Chen also noticed that the rain doesn’t hit her face anymore.

The clothes on his back was almost drenched by the rain. He was diligently standing in place to block the rain on Lou Chen. Lou Chen was almost not touched by the rain, even her face that once got sprinkled was now covered by yam leaves being held by Jin Yan Hen slightly above her head. The water was dripping all the way down his arms. Traces of bandages on his arms were also revealed as his clothes were plastered to his body after being soaked in the rain. Lou Chen knits her brows slightly thinking of his arm that was wounded, he was still hurting and the treatment for his poison was not yet done.

Lou Chen took out of a small jar from her waist. This was her own concoction for detoxification of poison and it naturally not as effective as the antidote for specific poison but in the absence of antidote, she estimated that it was about 60-70% effective in eliminating the toxic compounds.

Chen took out one pill from the jar, put it in her palm, stretched it out in front calling,”‘ Jin Yan Hen.” She then passed him the pill.

Jin Yan Hen did not turn but just casually answered, ”Umm” in acknowledgment. Looking back, he saw a white slim arm stretched in front of him with a black pill lying on a palm. The pill has a faint scent and while holding the yam leaves, he lowered his head sideways to pick up the pill and swallowed it.

Lou Chen hand shivered a little. His warm breath hitting his palm felt a little tickled.

After Jin Yan Hen swallowed the medicine, he found it good and not painful to take. He then asked, “What is this pill?”

Isn’t too late to ask after you eat? Lou Chen took back her hand, ignored the strange feeling in her heart. She just looked away from him and tried to ignore him.

Then a flash of lightning illuminated the ground. Lou Chen noticed that the stone level ground had something on it. She gently pushed Jin Yan Hen and walked out of her position sideways.

Jin Yan Hen saw her walked 6 to 7 steps sideways and then got down on one knee.

Jin Yan Hen hurriedly rushed towards her side to look, immediately he doesn’t know if he will laugh or cry. In front, he was staring at the diamond pattern, pointing inside the mountain?

After examining closely they discovered that under the foot of the mountain there was a gap. The gap was very small and the person had to lie down and go in slowly. Jin Yan Hen picked a stone and threw it inside the gap. He heard a few echoes at the beginning, and then it stopped.

Lou Chen stretched out her hand inside the gap and felt a wind slightly passing. She pulls back her hand and said: “I will go down to take a look.”

Before she got down on her knees to go down, she felt a hand suddenly pulled her shoulder. Jin Yan Hen coaxed her,” I go down and look first.”

Lou Chen looked at him, surprised. His narrow eyes narrowed even more while flashing a grandiose smile, he approached her side self reassuring said, “You’re very touched right?” ”

If he does not say this, perhaps she will really be touched. Lou Chen pushed his wet head to the side with her finger.

Jin Yan Hen released the hands that pulled Lou Chen to wipe the rain water on his head and body, putting aside his teasing he earnestly said,” In your hand is the Cang Feng, your martial arts is also better than mine and you are also a very skilled doctor in detoxification. I will go down first and see the situation. You can rescue me if I encounter any danger. If you go first and encounter any danger, I might necessarily be able to save you.”

He did not wait for Lou Chen to answer, he stuffed the yam leaves in her hand and while caught in surprise not knowing what he was doing, Jin Yan hen fell forward quickly and moved between the gap slowly moved inside.

The leaves of the wild yam were dropping cool rainwater at the back of the hand of Lou Chen but her palm was warm on the part of the stem that Yan Hen was holding before. She was a little confused at the moment doesn’t know what to feel.

The clatter of the rain was very loud; Lou Chen kneel by the crack and barely heard the voice of Jin Yan Hen saying, “There is a pit down here!”

Jin Yan Hen climbed in from the crevice, tried to feel the inside of the cave, only to discover that there was no way ahead, but below was a huge pit like a tunnel. He jumped into the pit. Inside the pit was very dark but he could feel that the pit was very spacious. He feared that Lou Chen who was waiting above would be worried. After saying those few words, he remained in his place and waited for his eyes to adapt to the darkness.

It wasn’t very easy to see his surroundings; everything was fuzzy. Suddenly, he saw a shadow leap from above. Jin Yan Hen was squinting trying to figure what was that shadow. Indeed it was a silhouette of a person, with full of vigilance, he whispered, “Chen’er?”

“Umm.”The chilly unique tone of Lou Chen, although it was only one “um” was enough for Jin Yan Hen to know that it was her.

He called her “Chen’ er ” just moments ago and she responded. What was the meaning of this? Is Lou Chen then giving him permission to call her “Chen ‘er,’?

The surroundings were pitch black, Lou Chen had not seen in Jin Yan Hen’s self-satisfied appearance in his eyes, she only saw that the pit’s tunnel had a small underground river. To be more accurate, it was not really a river but a creek, the water was very shallow and it flows between the stones on the ground. The rain outside was still pouring strongly that it was masking the sound of the water flowing between the stones. Jin Yan Hen said, “This hole is very large since there is water, there should be an outlet somewhere. We follow the water and maybe the assassin is hidden somewhere in the cave.” ”

“Okay.”

Lou Chen has a booklet of match that was able to ignite a fire, it was hidden on her waist. This booklet was preserved and has not been soaked by the rain. She feared that if she uses it now to start a fire, it will alert the enemy on the darkness, hide deeper and will cause him to be more dangerous. Therefore the two decided not to ignite a fire. After gradually adapting to the surroundings of the tunnel, they followed the direction of the small brook.

After walking only about ten feet, they suddenly smell a scent of blood transmitting from the distant place. They stopped their footsteps, in the darkness they looked at each other then grasp their weapons.

As they slowly proceeded, the bloody smell was getting richer but they could not feel the breathing of a human being. With a heavy injury, the person was able to hide his breathing this well? This was very unusual.

Lou Chen had a strong suspicion that something was odd. She took out the match from her waist, light up the torch and blew the flame gently to make the flame flourish little bigger. In the middle of pitch dark surroundings, they were able to see clearly around them.

Just as she thought, there was an obscure plant inside the cave where the strong scent of blood was coming from. The plant’s color was entirely scarlet red. Each long sheath of this humble plant was something resembling a ‘meat’. Lou Chen grabbed one of the long leaf blades and crumbled it into her palm. The red juice flowed out and the blood scent grew even stronger. Lou Chen was pleasantly surprised exclaimed softly, “ Yang Wang Cao?!”   (meaning The King’s grass)

This was a truly pleasant surprise. This King’s Grass liked to grow in isolated, dark, damp and cold places. She had seen one in the mountain institute. Her imperial uncle assigned a person to search for this plant for eldest maternal aunt. It took five years before they were able to find one and it was truly treasured by her aunt. She was not expecting that today she will find this treasure here! This was truly incredible.

Under the soft light, Lou Chen’s lips were smiling excitedly. She was looking at the grass closely and ecstatic of her discovery. Jin Yan Hen who occasionally watched the face of Lou Chen for a smile was also pleasantly surprised. This was the first time he had seen her smiling warmly without inhibition and right now he doesn’t know how to describe it. His brain can only think of two words,” very beautiful” and he tried to refrain himself but he still could not help from saying it out loud, “ You’re smile is very beautiful.”

Is this considered flirting? Lou Chen’s smiling lips suddenly turned stiff. Jin Yan Hen seemed like he doesn’t fear death suddenly blurted out, “When you are not smiling, you are still beautiful!”

That’s right! Lou Chen’s eyes swept past Jin Yan Hen and she extended her hand speedily towards him. Jin Yan Hen stepped back but he was too late. He heard a ‘hissing ‘sound of the blue cloth being ripped.

A section of the lower hem of his blue cloth was already torn and he could only look and hold on the other half of the hem. Jin Yan Hen doesn’t know if he should smile or cry. “Chen’er, don’t do be too aggressive. Use words and just ask nicely!”

Chapter 15  Poisoning

Just then, Xiao An came back running again and said, “Lou Chen, someone is looking for you outside.”

Lou Chen slightly raised her eyebrows, unexpectedly to her surprise, today is no ordinary day, there is so much bustling, noise, and excitement.

It is only between 9-11am, there are already many patients waiting in line in the main hall of the hospital to be examined. Lou Chen just entered the hall; a small figure rushed over toward her arms, shouted, “Elder Sister!”

Su Tong?  After she saw clearly the little girl’s appearance, Lou Chen gently caught the child and held her on her bosom, and asked, “What happened?

“Sister, save mother and Aunt Mei!” Su Tong’s eyes were red and swollen and the sound of her voice is also very hoarse as if she came crying all the way.

Lou Chen patted her shoulder to calm her,  “What is the matter, tell me slowly.”

Lou Chen’s cool voice sounds particularly appeasing to the crowd.  Su Tong l finally calmed down, sniffling and in a trembling voice, “I do not know what happened, my brother and I woke up in the morning and we saw mother lying down in the kitchen. No matter how we shouted, she did not wake up. I went to find Aunt Mei next door for help, but I did not expect, Aunt is also unconscious! I also heard that it is not only them that passed out!”

Lou Chen eyes narrowed, “How many people were unconscious?”

Su Tong paused to think for a moment, anxiously shook her head, tears flowing down her cheeks, “Do not know, I heard that there are seven or eight families have fainted. Elder Sister, your medical skills so good, help mother please, save everyone. “

So many people become unconscious at the same time. It must not be an ordinary illness. Lou Chen caressed the head of Su Tong to comfort her and told Xiao An who was behind her, “Call over Fang Rui Hui.”

“Yes.”  Xiao An dared not delay and run immediately towards the small courtyard.

“Elder Sister, is Mother will be the same as Father … …will leave us?” Su Tong was tightly grasping Lou Chen, her innocent bright eyes is full of fear and anxiety.

Lou Chen strokes the girl’s forehead with her palm, looking at her eyes, Lou Chen whispered, “No, she will be okay.”

“Ah!” Su Tong nodded her head, as if in order to give herself more confidence.

At this time Fang Ru Hui also hurriedly came out, Xioa An probably gave him some information because few people were also following him.  Jin Yan Hen and Jin Ru also came with him. He walked to Lou Chen’s side and asked,“ What happened?”

Lou Chen lowered her voice and said: “The small village at the foot of Lou Shen mountain, for whatever reason, it appeared many villagers fell into unconsciousness. I am worried that it is an epidemic.”

After she finished, the faces of Fang Ru Hui, Jin Yan Hen, and Ji Ru all become suddenly serious. Feeling in the atmosphere that something is not right, Su Tong body began to shake trying to suppress her cry and blankly looked at Fang Ru Hui. 

Fang Rui Hui thought for a moment, whispered, “I ‘m going to prepare some herbs, go and examine them and investigate, be careful.”

Lou Chen nodded, then right away she heard a sweet male voice, “I’ll go with you.”

Lou Chen turned to look; Jin Yan Hen came to her side and on his face was hanging a ruffian smile. Lou Chen glanced at him, she says nothing and did not refuse his company also.

Jin Ru twists her eyebrows and quickly interjected, “No, your poisoning is not yet cured. You don’t run around!”

Jin Yan Hen lightly pats his wrapped wounds, laughed, “I just took the medicine, and now I felt like nothing has happened. I will go to see the situation, if it is an epidemic disease, I will immediately inform the authority.”

Jin Ru glared at him and said, “Then, I also will go.”

“Aunt, you stay in the hospital, if it is really an epidemic, you and the authorities are friends and you can go to them and tell them and they will take the situation more seriously. Besides, the hospital is also keeping a dangerous person inside like  Xing Mu. Me too, I am not very comfortable.” Jin Yan Hen looked his Aunt with a serious concern which rarely seen with Jin Yan Hen, and he said it is clear and in very controlled manner. As he was talking,  Jin Ru was looking at him and it brought flashbacks from the past, extremely similar face and tone of voice, her mind went blank for a split second.

After seeing that Jin Ru fell in a moment of trance, Jin Yan hen flashes a dazzling look of sweetness, smiled as he usually does to her and said, “Aunt rest assured, with Chen’er, this is nothing. She can cure even a highly toxic poison, whatever disease it is, she can find a remedy for it.”

Jin Ru put her head low and thinking, she lifther head and finally nodded, “ But you have to come back as soon as you can, don’t stay too late.”

Jin Yan Hen grinned, “Certainly.”

Jin Yan Hen bent over and picked up the little girl, however, he accidentally involved the hand with the wound and he gasps because of pain, paused, in that split moment, Lou Chen already picked up the little girl and held her in her arms.

 When he looked up, the figure of sky blue has already gone with the little girl. He can only smile and follow behind.

“Give way! Step aside! Sister is coming!”

Outside the small courtyard of Aunt Mei’s residence, a cry of a little girl suddenly sounded, startling the villagers who surrounded the door. Looking behind them, they saw a man and a woman standing at the door of the house, the woman still holding a little girl in her arms and the voice sounded like it is little the girl from Su household.

Who is talking? The man and the woman have the little girl; their faces were covered with a white piece of cloth.  Before entering the village, Lou Chen asked them to cover their faces; after all, if it is really an epidemic, it will be contagious. So, naturally, she has to be careful.

Uncle Mei looked at the people that came in, ignorantly looked at Lou Chen and asked hesitantly, “You. Are you the doctor who lived in the Su house before?

Lou House nods and continued to examine the small courtyard. Even with the white piece of handkerchief covering her face, her eyes remains steely but with the faint trace of surprise.

Inside the small courtyard, whoever arranged it, they put the nine unconscious people side by side on few beds and their faces were surprisingly consistent, pale gray and slightly greenish in color. It looks like, these people were all been poisoned.

Their families were all on the sidelines watching anxiously. An old herbalist kept on shaking his head in disbelief. The people were asking him questions but he could not tell them the reason why.

Lou Chen put down Su Tong to a door next to the courtyard. She did not let the little girl go further. She walked inside and started to examine the bodies. As she raised one of the women’s wrist to take her pulse, she  asked, “  When they all fainted?”

The villagers looked at each other, they all know this lady doctor, who suddenly appeared a few days ago and live with Su’s household and they are aware also that she help cure their son’s leg. Although they don’t understand why she is covering her face, for her medical skill, the villagers believed her. The people glanced at each other before answering, “ Probably around chen shi  (7-9am modern time)”.  

Lou Chen withdrew her hand and continued probing the hand of the second person.” Do they display any symptoms prior to fainting?”

This time no one hesitates to answer, everyone was rushing to answer.

“No, they are really well.”

“My mother is still up in the morning!”

“My wife is healthy and this morning she even went out to fetch some water!”

Jin Yan Hen has been standing beside Su Tong and was listening to the villagers. When the villagers said that all have no signs of illness before, he was secretly relieved. So, this incident is not an epidemic.

Lou Chen continued her diagnosis.  Jin Yan Hen thought for a moment and asked, “What did they eat before fainting?” Several people shook their heads, “ It’s too early in the morning, they haven’t eaten anything yet.”

Aunt Mie’s son, about a 12-year-old boy, suddenly shouted, “Now, I remembered. My mother drunk a mouthful of water before she passed out.”

“Water? Jin Yan Hen asked immediately, “Where is it?”

The boy pointed to the bucket of water that was in the yard and said, “That’s the bucket. We took the water from the spring and directly drink from it.”

Jin Yan Hen went to the bucket, sat down carefully to take a look; the water is very clear. He scoops the water using a ladle and sniff, it has no peculiar smell. He put down the ladle and asked, “When did you fetch this bucket of water?”

Uncle Mei stepped forward, perplexed and replied, “I went to fetch it this morning, why?” Jin Yan Hen saw that Lou Chen was still busy checking the people that collapsed, he did not want to bother her, continues to probe, “Are this people that collapsed gets water from the same source?”

“Yes .”

“Well, been there.”

“Is there a problem with water? Impossible ah, we drink from the same spring water for more than a decade, it can’t be dirty.”

Not only people the people inside the courtyard have growing interest, even the crowds of villager standing outside were lively chatting about it.

Finally, after she finished taking the pulse of the last person, Lou Chen asked Su Tong after withdrawing her hand, “ Did your mother took some water this morning?”

Su Tong shook her head blankly, she did not know.

At this time, the person standing beside Uncle Mei replied, “When I came back, I saw Sister Su outside carrying water, with her body so weak, we are neighbors, so I helped her bring home the bucket of water. “

Lou Chen also walked went to check the bucket of water. Jin Yan Hen steps on the side. Lou Chen dipped her hand into the water and fiddled it, then sniffed her wet hand. Her face frowned for she smells a very faint unusual scent.  

Jin Yan Hen has been watching Lou Chen House closely and seeing her frown, immediately asked, “Is the water the culprit?

Lou Chen did not reply. In the small courtyard, the door opened and walking in is Fang Ru Hui with two drug attendants, all three are sweating profusely, and their faces were also covered with silk and they are carrying large medicine boxes containing all kinds of herbs on their shoulders.

Seeing Fang Rui Hui walking in, the eyes of the people in the courtyard brightened and happily exclaimed, “ The doctor came! They are saved!”

These differences in treatment between the two doctors were very obvious. Who could blame them, after all, Thousands of Herbs Hospital have the reputation in Loushi town.  Lou Chen actually did not care, but Fang Ru Hui was slightly embarrassed. After acknowledging the crowd with a simple nod, he quickly went beside Lou Chen and asked, “How is the situation?”

“It is not an epidemic. This looks like poisoning. I do not know exactly what kind of poison it is. You should give them some vomiting medicine first. We will go and check the water source .”

After hearing that the cause of people collapsing is not a disease, Fang Ru Hui’s heart that was hung all the way  finally eased, nodded and replied, “I know, you go ahead.”

Jin Yan pats Uncle Mei’s shoulder and said, “You lead us there.”  

Feeling the pain on his shoulder, Uncle Mei just remembered Lou Chen’s words and now it made sense to him, “Oh, good!”

Uncle Mei with two other people from the village lead them towards the mountains, and just after few minutes, Lou Chen and Jin Yan heard the sound of shallow water flowing.  They went around a small slope and Uncle Mei with the pointed finger, “ There it is.”   Continue reading

Volume III Chapter 68  The Relatives and Friends

 “Young Master Mo  please think twice!”  

The sky was clear and boundless. It was blue and the sea was also blue, three gigantic snow white ships were in a row ready to sail and standing in front of the ships were a group of people. The faces of several of them were visibly taut and impatient, though not as angry as they might seem to be and not suffering facial paralysis, at this moment they have been a little more furious than they were yesterday. Mo Yuan watching the group of people at first break of the dawn. He was wearing a black cape as he used too only that his complexion was paler, looking indifferently with his brows knit tightly.  

 Su-Su came behind Li Yang and whispered, “Li Yang, what is the reason why they are so stirred?” Su-Su thought so before that Mohist shun the rest of the world, even possibly xenophobic, in fact, she believed it to be true when several of Mohist men learned that she, Ao San and Sang Nuan were getting ready to go to Mo village, their faces suddenly changed. Looking at the appearance of a few people at the moment, they are like loyal officials risking death … …Li Yang glared at Su Su, but still whispered, “Non-Mohist, no patriarch’s token, not allowed into the Mohist village, this is the custom and rule.”

 There was such a custom and rule, as Su-Su thinks of it since Mo does not allow anyone to enter, but Mo Yuan allowed themselves to come, obviously, this Ling Shi was indeed extraordinary significant to Mohist just as Uncle Ao Tian said.

 In her mind, Su Su got an idea, approached Mo Yuan and patted him on the shoulder as he was about to open  his mouth and said, “Let me do it.”  

Mo Yuan’s body froze when her hand fell on his shoulder, Su Su  stood in front of him and meet the vicious look of those few men and said with smile, “Ah Nuan is the daughter of Mo Sang, naturally the blood of the Mohist and going back to the Mo village should not be considered as bad according to the custom. As for Ao San, he is now my shadow guard, just like Li Yang, following Mo Yuan, he also must guard me all the time, in fact,  you do not need to be this emotionally stirred, you are all expert and do not need to take it too hard. If you think I am not allowed to enter the Mo Village, you men go back and ask the patriarch. If he let me go in, I go in, but he did not let me enter, then I leave, that’s the end of it. This will not be contrary to the Mohist custom then. But it is not about that, it is about the Lingshi, I think the patriarch will be very happy to see me, just giving my opinion.”

Su Su put a serious emphasis on the word ” Lingshi ” and a surprised look crossed the eyes of the few men.

 Su Su  smiled with satisfaction and asked, “So, can we embark now?” Several men look at the one leading, the man thought for a moment, did not say anything, but silently retreated two steps.  Sang Leng has been standing beside Sang Nuan, at the moment his expression is the same with his name, cold, with chilly voice asked, “Elder Sister, do you really want to go Mohist village?”

 Sang Nuan’s mood looks good, smiled back, “The matters of Wolf Island I leave to you. I’ll be back soon, do not worry. ”    

” But … ” Looking at the appearance of the two siblings looked like they were reluctant to part. Su Su funnily says, ” Do not worry, I will certainly take care of sister Ah Nuan. Ensure also you keep yourself healthy and I will guarantee to make your sister invigorated, healthy and very very plump. ”   As soon as Su Su finished speaking, Sang Nuan was gawking at her and Sang Leng’s eyes were also fixed on her,” hurry now, afterward you will be busy to do your business.”

Su Su was laughing happily, ” Ah Leng are you envious? Do you want to come with us? ” Sang Leng did not answer yet but Su Su felt on her back the malicious eyes of several men. What a pity, the looks that were like daggers cannot kill anyone which was why Su Su just completely ignored them.

 Sang Leng naturally also felt the nasty eyes of those poor men, answered quickly, “That place even if I’m asked to come, I will not go.”

Seeing that the smell of gunpowder was getting more dense and stronger, Su Su winked to Sang Nuan for her to comfort and appease her younger brother, turned around and arrived before Ao Tian. “Uncle Ao, I’m leaving. Don’t worry,  I am quick witted. I will not make trouble, the worst outcome to this will only go as far as just throwing me out of the door and not seized an insignificant girl like me, you rest assured!”, Su-Su feels some eye’s sockets were hot on her. Every time Uncle Ao visits her at Qiong Yue to see her, he would leave without bidding goodbye to her, so her heart did not have the opportunity to experience this sour feeling for goodbyes, and now that she tasted it, the feeling is not quite good.

Looking at the little girl’s eyes turning red, Ao Tian’s heart a softened and tenderly touched her head. Laughing, “Go. Do not play too long, come home soon.”     

 “Um.’ Su Su nods.  Ao Tian waved his hand, turned around and help Sang Nuan to embark the ship.

The  Mohist ship’s cabins were clean and comfortable, because of the huge hull, so at the sea, the feeling as it sailed was completely different than that of the fishing boats, it was steady and fast. Su-Su when she just embarked on the ship was very very excited, but a few days later the excitement vanished.  

“This is just but few days?!” 

 On the sheet of a solid wood round table, a woman lazily lying on top of her stomach, very bored to death.

The Mohist, after all, were influential family, when they come to visit, they have to pack to clean up on their own before boarding. Sang Nuan and Su Su find themselves two simple and elegant ladies clothing to wear. This moment, she was wearing a yellow goose necked Chinese style long dress, with buttons down in front. If her hair was not casually to tied in a long pigtail or braids, it will be naively coiled in a chignon, and only for a second she was sitting down straight properly, with a somewhat decent appearance for a lady.  But now, how pitiful … …     

 “Ao San?” Su-Su soon called lazily. Unfortunately, nobody can advise her to mind her appearance. 

 Cupping her cheek, Su Su was not in a good mood continued to say, ” Ao San, you do not really need to work as a shadow. You tell me, today, is what day?”  “Seventeenth day.” He was leaning in one corner and got back to his place after one word and then remained quiet.

 Ao San also is very boring! Now she only felt that the ship was too steady and there was no exciting fishing boat around. Those people do not allow them on the upper deck but to stay in her room all the time. Staying in the room felt the bones of her body already hurting.  Su-Su was lying on the table, playing the copper scales fan with her hands, she has been sitting for the entire day, there is nothing special to pass the time, asked, “Ah Nuan, Mo Yuan’s current condition, is it very bad?”   

 On a soft couch by the window, Sang Nuan was comfortably lying down and reading, absent-mindedly replied,” He’s okay. ”   

 Okay? Su  Su frowned, “So why is he so strange recently. He is just hiding in the cabin all day, does not even join us for a meal? It has been a few days that I did not even see a glimpse of him.”

The beautiful pupil that was hidden behind the book narrowed, her voice was unrestrained, spoke with all her heart, “Do you want to see him?”

Su Su grabbed the fan with another hand and then paused, have I wanted to see him? Su Su had never thought of it, replied, “I’m just a little worried. I am afraid if he vomits blood again?.”

Sang Nuan finally put down the book, supporting her body halfway, laughed, “When was the last time he vomited blood?”

 “Last time when I was talking to him, he suddenly vomits blood.” Sang Nuan mouth pouted a little and asked, “What were you talking about?”  Sang Nuan’s eyes have a touch strange of radiance and Su Su subconsciously decided not to answer. Coughing lightly before she replied, “Nothing. We are just casually chatting.” 

 Watching her vigilant appearance, Sang Nuan smiled happily, “Oh ~ maybe he is afraid that casually chatting with you will make him vomit blood again, that’s why he was hiding and does not come out.”  

  Su Su wished she has not listened to Sang Nuan teasing her. She was rather very stupid and gave her glaring eyes and decided not to speak with her.

 However, she was extremely bored. Good heavens, how long it is before they are going to reach their destination? It was suffocating.

One side of poisoned delegation has not yet arrived at  Mo village, over the other side, Tantai Ye Lie because of the poisoning has fallen into a coma. Behind the screen, a gray-haired old man was treating the person on the bed, from his serious expression one could tell that the man on the ship was in very critical condition.

 “Finally, what’s the matter?” A man more than 50-year-old with well-built stature, tall and straight asked. He was solemn while standing outside the screen. His pair of hawk-like eyes was full of indignant stare at the man, and though the tone was very low, a person who hears him will shiver.

 “Tantai  dàgē… …” Xiang Guan He called him that title 20 years ago, but seeing the man looked cold, he immediately shut up, thought over and over again before speaking with a quivering voice, “General, this matter with Ye Lie was in fact not surprising and cannot be blamed for the young general. If there was to be blamed, blame it to the sudden appearance of a girl from Su Family.

Dàgē meaning eldest brother.

 ” Su Family? Tantai Feng’s perceptive eyes flashed with surprised. Is Su Family also looking for the Ling shi?    Xiang Guan He nodded quickly, “Yes, the Su Family of Qiong Yue!”  

 He quietly looked up and saw Tantai Feng’s look of confusion, Xiang Guan He continued, “The young general had been successful and infiltrated the island at the beginning. He also discussed cooperation with Sang Nuan that as long as he helps her removed the Yi’s and few more men, Sang Nuan will tell the young general where the Lingshi was hidden. Who would have thought that the young girl of the Su Family unexpectedly rushed to Wolf Island? She also exposed that Sang Nuan and Tantai Ye Lie were the murderers. As for the Lingshi, it was taken away by Mo Yuan. I was chosen to build Mo Sang’s grave in the past and at that time I fear to send her corpse inside the cave so I secretly build another passage after the funeral. This I told the young general and I do not know how he was poisoned, I … … ”       Xian Guan He also wants to speak more but behind the partition has some movement and an old man came out from the inside. Tantai Feng gently beckoned with his hand to  Xiang Guan. He tactfully withdrew immediately and went go out.

Tantai Feng went over and in a very polite tone, ” Imperial Doctor Rong Yu, how’s the child?”

Doctor Rong Yu shook his head and wiped the sweat on his forehead, saying: ” Your child’s poison is very vicious, it is very potent, if not for his deep endogenic force, perhaps he had not survived these many days. Well, this old man is incompetent to help him detoxify, the only useful technique is golden needle technique so the poison right now can be sealed in a hole of acupuncture points to prevent further attacks to his heart and glands, within 49 days, we have to find a way to detoxify him or else… “

Tantai Feng’s face sank,” Who can cure? ” Doctor Rong Yu is the capital’s most prestigious doctor of Liao Yue, if he cannot treat, Ye Lie cannot survive? Is this it?     

Imperial Doctor Rong sighed and said, “To my knowledge, there are only two people in the world today who can understand this poison, one is a ghost doctor and another one is Mr. Pu Shan. However, Mr. Pu Shan is living in the Mohist village and almost ignorant about the outside world. The ghost doctor, on the other hand, has a strange temper and the whereabouts of both are not easy to find. In recent years, I heard the ghost doctor have a close disciple whom he teaches everything, maybe you can try, but that is Qing Feng empress and precisely the favorite concubine of Qiong Yue emperor. Getting near and asking her for the whereabouts wouldn’t be that easy.”

Tantai Feng put his hand across his chest in humility,” Doctor, carry on put the needle on the child first.”   

Imperial Doctor Rong Yu sighed and walked inside.

Through the partition he looked at the bed lay a dying person, Tantai Feng closed his eyes, his heart is grieving in pain. Ah Sang, so many years have already passed; you are still this ruthless, so overbearing. Since you hurt my son, that antidote can only with be with the Mohists!

A Mistaken Marriage Match 4: The Pirate’s Daughter Volume II Chapter 66 Who Dares Bully My Sister Ah Nuang?

A Mistaken Marriage Match 4: Pirate’s Daughter by Qian Lu 錯嫁良緣續之海盜千金 作者:淺綠

Volume II Chapter 66 Who Dares Bully My Sister Ah Nuan?

Su Su came and guessed correctly the situation inside the cave was not good but had not expected to see such spectacle. At the center of the cave, Sang Leng was holding the silver gun, glaring and pointing the gun towards the Mohists and Yi Dang Jia. Those people were looking at him coldly, also at Sang Nuan that was standing behind him. They were not paying attention to Sang Leng but at the corner of their eyes, they were more concerned about Ao Tian. They were dreading him more than anyone inside that cave.

Sang Nuan’s appearance looked very concerning, her forehead was full of sweat and her face looked deathly pale. She was biting her lower lip as if she was making an effort to stay sober and not faint. Her eyes have no trace of fear or do not seems to back down, her vision was fixed at the people’s eyes opposite her whose eyes were always looking at her with indifference.

Ah Nuan !” Su Su ran to the side of Sang Nuan to hold her shoulder. She felt that the person’s whole body was shaking inside. It does not matter if these people were having a confrontation but for Su Su, she rushed to Sang Nuan’s aid and quickly sat her down on a chair.

When Su Su suddenly ran inside the cave, the Mohist people turned their attention towards the entrance and naturally saw Mo Yuan with that same look of cold indifference.

When the man headed toward Mo Yuan saw his deathly pale face, he had a frown inside his heart. He did not make his reaction obvious and he did not make comment about it but he still moved forward to respectfully salute before him, “ Lord Mo shao shu”.

Mo Yuan did not say anything. He just nodded his head in response and continued standing. This task took an enormous amount of effort from him, just for such simple task, it was consuming all his strength.

Sang Nuan’s body was still shaking even though she was already sitting down. Su Su was greatly worried, wanting an assurance she asked, “Ah Nuan, are you alright?”

Sang Nuan shook her head. Su Su glanced at Mohist people who were looking at Mo Yuan and then looked at Ye Dang Jia who was partly hidden behind the Mohist . Su Su in a tone of voice not caring about what the other party’s reaction asked her, “ Did they bully you?”

Sang Nuan sneered, “ Whatever, anything that came from them is not worthwhile.”

Sang Nuan’s voice was chilly. Her eyes were full of the look of indifference that though she was sitting weakly on the chair at this moment her manner remained imposing.

Yi Meng regretted it so much from the beginning when Mo Sang died, these two bastards were only about two years old. During that time, there were countless men that were loyal to Mo Sang and he does not know if these two children were his own. Only if he were not dreading the Mohist that time, he would have killed them already. If he only knew then what he knew now, that the Mohist were not even aware of their existence! He should have killed these two troublesome bastards then.

His heart was full of anxiousness, also thinking of that traitorous Xiang Erye who actually run off unexpectedly taking with him several people and at leaving him alone. Now, he was by himself. What was more damning was that this wicked woman, Sang Nuan, unexpectedly studied deadly poisons behind his back. In the past he defeated Mo Sang’s poison technique, however, that was many years ago now he must remove Sang Nuan in any event, otherwise, she will get the Wolf Island. If that ever happened he won’t be able to preserve his life. But before any of that, he wants to settle the issue of that woman from Su family, she must be dealt with first.

Yi Dang Jia quietly observed the face of Mo Yuan and in his heart, he thought of something. He pointed at Su Su and said on top of his voice, ” She is to be blamed for this. She was from Su family and she conspired with Sang Nuan, also she is the one who also colluded with Tantai family. Together, they wanted to snatch for themselves the Mohist precious treasure. This woman came on the island with a disguise and tricked Mo shao shu from the beginning. After winning his trust, they then poisoned him! You take a close look at Mo shao shu’s appearance. Didn’t he appeared poisoned and it is by them! There is definitely a conspiracy between Su family and Tantai family! Now that Tantai Ye Lie escaped, do not let this woman escape also!”

Su Su raise her head and stared at him with firmness, in a chilling voice scolded him,” Is that all you have to say? You better shut up now because if you do not shut up this very moment, I will make you shut that mouth forever! ”

Yi Dang Jia suddenly opened his eyes wider, angrily glaring at Su Su , ” Small silly girl, big words do not ……”

Yi Dang Jia does not have the time to finish his words when he felt a bright and cold object touched his nape, followed by the gushing of warm blood. The clamoring person just a moment ago now lay dead.

Ao Jie with a blank expression drew back his sword. After striking his target, he walks silently beside Ao Tian.

The death of Yi Meng, the pirate’s chief, apart from a frown from Su Su’s face, nobody really cared.

The man in his early forties from Mo clan took the initiative to ask Sang Nuan in a tone of apathy, “The thing that Mo Sang left behind, where is it?”

“Except for several books about plants, my mother did not leave anything to me?”

“Look here! Considering that you are a Mohist offspring, hand over Ling Shi and Lingcao of Mo Sang if you think I can’t kill you.” The man’s voice was calm but carried with it an infinite coldness. Su Su knitted her brows and when she was just about to speak, Sang Nuan stood up in reply, “I am not a person of Mohist, I am not in the past and neither in the future! I told you what my mother left behind, none of these things that you claimed. Even if my mother left me with anything, I will not give them over to you; do as you wish to do if you have the ability to do it.”

After saying those words, she reached out with one hand to push Su Su away. Her hand gesturing for her not to come nearer and meddle when out of nowhere, a white mist ascended from her fingertips but it did not scatter but her intention was set clearly.

The people of Mohist clan definitely saw clearly the white mist from Sang Nuan’s hand. Their expressions changed whereas the indifferent eyes were now covered with vigilance and an intention to strike back.

“That’s enough.” A man’s whisper sounded in an instant. That whisper shook the two groups of people like a quake. They could not refrain themselves from falling one step back.

He still dared to use his internal force unexpectedly! Su Su raised her head and watched the man that was still standing at the threshold of the cave. She then heard that cold voice once more, ” I got the Ling Shi. I also looked everywhere on the Island. Younger Aunt did not leave behind any relics.”

Su Su felt strange and wondered what his heart’s intent was. He has the Lingcao and the jade tassels of Mo Sang, why was he claiming that he does not have the relics in possession? What was Mo Yuan planning now?

After listening to the words of Mo Yuan, the chief elder did not want to make things more awkward with Sang Nuan and replied, “ Since this is the case, the Ling Shi was found, give Mo shao shu back to his servants. “

Su Su seemed to feel that these Mohist elders truly respect Mo Yuan. Their respect was not only because he was their leader but it was coupled with a deep reverence .

Su Su was carefully analyzing and observing these people when she heard Mo Yuan called them, “ You come with me.”

Su Su wanted to call out after him and stop him, owing to the fact that his health was not suitable to show off such endogenic power again. But in the end, she did not make a noise thinking that Mo Yuan had a reason for doing what he does. Though it was unclear to her whatever his planning, she did not believe that it will add further to the chaos.

Su Su just exclaimed a sigh and look back just to see Sang Nuan paralyzed and collapsed on a chair. The white mist from the air has long vanished. Her face was deathly pale but her lips have a trace of a sneer, smiling to her coldly, assuring her that she was alright. Su Su suddenly thought of something… …

“Uncle Ao, Su Su will ask your help and do me one more favor?”

Ao Tian looked at her stern and serious appearance with some curiosity. “Help.” She seldom uses this word.

Su Su shook her head, “ What do you say Ah Nuan, let’s go to the medical shed.”

Su Su and Sang Leng held Sang Nuan together and returned to the medical shed, sitting her down on the chair, Su Su suddenly asked, “Ah Nuan, could you also help?” ” What do you want to do?” Sang Nuan was puzzled, the poison of Mo Yuan she already tried her best to managed . There are no other people who was injured by poison, what does she need in her place?Seeing that Sang Nuan’s spirit was pretty good, Su Su said to Sang Leng that was standing nearby, “Sang Leng , help me find an incense burner and a fragrance.”

Sang Leng looking at her strange behavior, asked, “ What are you going to do? “

Su Su glared at him and said with a snort, “ Just find it and you will see.”

Sang Nuan knew that Su Su could be very well into some funny weird stuff, without thinking said to them, “You do not need to look everywhere. The medical shed has one, it’s in a low cabinet.”

Sang Leng went over to open the low cabinet and inside there was really a small incense burner and a fragrance less than half full. Su Su let him put the fragrance on the table and then moved the table towards the door front.

“Uncle Ao, I want to swear sisterhood with Ah Nuan properly. In my heart you are an elder, I thought of you to help me and become our witness.”

Su Su suddenly said such words and Ao Tian expression did not change, but on the other hand, the siblings were greatly surprised and shout at the same time, “ Su Su?!”

When Ao Tian heard Su Su previously that she wanted an incense burner and fragrance, he already guessed correctly what she wanted to do. Sweeping a glance at Sang Nuan and Sang Leng’s shocked faces, Ao Tian commented with a smile, “You have not sworn brotherhood yet?”

“Before it was to prevaricate Yi Dang Jia, it was said casually, however this time it is to swear before the incense with heaven and earth as a witness .”

Su Su’s face was very solemn, Ao Tian knew then that for her it was not a joke, but still, he has to verify, “ Have you thought about it and have no doubts about it?”

Su Su nodded and earnestly replied, ” I am very sincere and have no doubts about it.” She truly appreciated Sang Nuan before. During that time when she discovered that the murderer was Sang Nuan, she was awfully sad and distressed. However, she felt sorry for her and loved her more dearly, this woman, granted if she was not same as a lotus to grow out the mud unblemished* (figuratively means principled and incorruptible) , to survive in the middle of steep escarpments, even plum flower have to survived the poor frosty environment and has to be equally stubborn to bloom fully. She liked her and enjoyed her company. She loved to be her sister! Ao Tian was never a stodgy nor pedantic as a person since Su Su established it in her heart, he will not oppose, ” Well then, let’s begin.”Su Su smiled gleefully and picked up the incense and was about to light it up but heard a voice of a woman’s whisper, “ No”.

Su Su frowned, “Ah Nuan , don’t you want to?” Sang Nuan smiled and in a soft lowly voice coldly said, “You are the only daughter of dignified Su clan and your status full of honor, your virtue is incomparable to be tied to you as a sworn sister. Forget it, I am alright.” Su Su felt sorry if she is a young Mo lady, but she will never be a Mo lady, she will even take the initiative to boast and swear sisterhood. But, since she is just a pirate, hands were covered with the blood of the pirate.. … that’s why she thought they do not deserve to be sworn together.

“I want to be sworn with you not to boast my noble identity, though I am a daughter of Su family which is right I am still just Su .” Su Su looked at Sang Nuan with a dazzling smile. Sang Nuan deeply sighed, “Su Su, I am a pirate.” How could a Su possibly accept a pirate as their daughter’s sworn sister, in the end, I might incriminate you to get a scolding from your family members.”

Su Su cannot comprehend it, pirate? Her mother often mentions of the Northwest warrior rider chief and about their head of the clan named Mu Cang. Mother was full of praise for her. Su Family never asked them to look at the status of their friends, it is not like younger auntie of Su family, she has to marry father’s youngest brother no matter what just to steal the surname.

“I care whether you are a noble daughter or a pirate, we hit it off well and I liked being sworn to you. I am the person you are sworn with, why you are over thinking so much? “

Su Su stared at Sang Nuan with a sweeping look, very earnest and loving. Sang Nuan surprisingly cannot think of words to refute her, “You… …”

Sang Nuan tried to shirks continually and Su Su was starting to be annoyed, ” You are so womanishly fussy? Vowing or not vowing? Say something.”

Sang Nuan this moment was biting her lip until she gradually tasted blood in her mouth. When she finally firmly made a decision, “ Will vow!” Now she was ready for any sacrifice, Su Su was like a light to her life and she wanted to seize this light.

Su Su was overjoyed, lit six incense and handed three to Sang Nuan, with their body facing towards the door, bend their knees and swore before the burning incense.

“I, Su Su, today swear and bond with Sang Nuan as my sister, from this day and onward, for good times and bad times we will be sisters, if I violate this oath, let God in the heaven bring me my punishment!”

“I, Sang Nuan, today swear and bond with Su Su, from now on and forever, for good times and bad times, we will be sisters, if I violate this oath, let God in the heaven bring my punishment !”

After they vowed their way, they rose and smiled at each other. Su Su grabbed Sang Nuan’s hand and said gleefully, “ Very good. Ah Nuan is now my sister, no one can bully you!” Sang Nuan also firmly grab Su Su’s hands and firmly shaking it gently and softly making a pledge, “ Su Su I will never let anyone bully you.” Su Su smiled and nodded. Sang Nuan suddenly clearly said to tease, bending slightly towards her, softly whispered, “Oh, also cousin too. I will not let him bully you.”

” Ah?” Who?

A Mistaken Marriage Match 4: Pirate’s Daughter Chapter 62 Taking Advantage of Your Illness?

A Mistaken Marriage Match 4: Pirate’s Daughter by Qian Lu 錯嫁良緣續之海盜千金 作者:淺綠 

Volume II Chapter 62 Taking Advantage of Your Illness

       Su Su chuckled and that sly light shone brightly in her eyes, “This is called to reply in kind. He calculated on others and he did not think others can calculate him? ” Let that jerk be injured and poisoned with nothing to gain actually! Compared with her, she can be despicable also. He overestimated his own capability! Hump! At normal times, she just simply felt like doing something also beneath her dignity!

      Mo Yuan looked at his side, her hand was holding the jade key and the ‘píngān fú‘. She stuffed the items into his hands. This woman right now was incomparably in state of bliss, laughing happily. His heart also was filled with a hint of happiness, she’s really crafty, very cunning … … making a person be pleased and be fond of her.

     Su Su’s eyes fell on Mo Yuan and the soaked insulated old paper bag. She suddenly remembered something and hurriedly fishes out the yellow ‘píngān fú ‘. It was properly preserved well in her waist all the while though it has some blisters and little moist. Su Su handed them also to Mo Yuan saying, ” And this is also for you.”

     Mo Sang tomb had only these two relics stored inside the box, one of which was the ‘píngān fú ‘or the old insulated paper bag. Obviously, this paper was very important also to Mo Yuan because after seeing the wooden box held by Tantai Ye Lie, his attitude suddenly transformed. It was very unusual for him. Numerous signs were showing that the simple yellow paper bag of ‘safe charm’ that she treated casually was not actually that simple. When Mo Yuan gave her the ‘píngān fú‘ that time also said she must, of course, return it to him afterward, so she thought, the earlier the better. Su Su stretched her hand forward and said, “I think this thing should very precious, you take it back and keep it.”

    After seeing the yellow paper bag in front of him, Mo Yuan’s unsightly face looked even worse. Knowing that this was very precious, but actually, she does not want it? The reasonable Mo Yuan inexplicably churned in anger and passing Su Su a look that reveals some spunk of anger.

     What’s going on here? Did she say anything wrong? When she was passing the yellow paper, Mo Yuan looked like he wanted to strangle her. Su Su’s back turn cold, since childhood she always confident with her intuition and believed in them. Su Su immediately drew back her hand and laughed embarrassingly, ” Ahh… … there is still a war, the ‘píngān fú‘, I will have to fight first and then give it back to you.

     Su Su saw Mo Yuan’s black eye squinted, groaned secretly, but it was good because suddenly there was a sound of hurried footsteps behind her to rescue her from her predicament.

    “Su Su!” Sang Nuan came rushing, her forehead was full of sweat and entered the room looking at Su Su from head to toe, her eyes full of worry. It warmed Su Su’s heart.

     Su Su took Sang Nuan to the bed, said, “Ah Nuan, I am alright. Mo Yuan was poisoned. Quickly take a look at him.”

     Sang Nuan turned to see Mo Yuan and cannot help but shocked with fright. She immediately stroked his wrist to take his pulse. Her heart was startled, where did Mo Yuan catch such overbearing and strange poison? If not for his internal strength, he would have been dead at that moment. Even so, the poisonous gas attacks the arteries and goes straight to the heart and when his internal energy was used up, without a doubt he will die.

    Sang Nuan got up with Su Su behind her to say that Mo Yuan’s situation was very critical, but she felt that a big hand clasped her wrist. Sang Nuan got the hint and swallowed back the words she was about to say.

     Su Su looked up the sky and it was nearly noontime. There was Sang Nuan now.  Mo Yuan should be able to be taken care of and get treatment. If she stayed behind what she can actually do? She can’t be of any help to him. She better focused on the matter that she can handle. To avoid more distress, Su Su stood behind Sang Nuan and whispered, ” Soon it will be noontime, I have to go to prepare to fight in battle. Ah Nuan, you rest assured that I will not let them easily land on the island, be at ease and take care of him!”

    The gaze from Mo Yuan’s black eyes was indifferent. Sang Nuan took a deep sigh nod gently, “Ah, go ahead.”

     Su Su gestured to Ao San standing at the gate and called out, “Ao San, let’s go.”

    Su Su left the medical shed with Ao San without looking back but clutching the ‘píngān fú tightly in her hands.

     Su Su was gone and out of sight, only then the grip that was holding Sang Nuan’s wrist slowly loosened.

    When Su Su arrived at the coast, Wolf Island’s two warships and Ju ling Island’s seven warships were already at the seashore in battle formation, as she had arranged the day before. The ships were in butterfly formation and the largest warship was standing at the middle like a black hawk with the black sail flapping like wings ready to swoop on its prey.

Su Su narrowed her eyes looking at the bow where she stood originally. This moment there was a tall figure standing, silver mane blown by the wind conspicuous against the black hull and sailing, wearing boundless anger ready to vent, look like raging a ‘great sea eagle’ to raise and fight the battle.

     Su Su jumped forward, rode the waves and finally leaped using the ‘Shiba Liang’, gliding herself on the left of the bow beside Ao Tian. ” Uncle Ao.”

     Ao Tian obviously heard the news. After seeing Su Su, there was no hint of surprise in his eyes but it was actively looking around her body while glancing at her, ” You are not injured?”

     Su Su smiled, “I’m fine, really.”

     Ao Tian went behind her and searching for the shadow of Mo Yuan but he was not really with her, “Does his poison have a cure?”

    Su Su’s body suddenly froze, shook her head for she did not know how to answer. She had no idea. She felt a suppression from her chest, both worry and annoyance, Su Su looked at Ao Tian smiling and said, “Uncle Ao, since I came back, you are relegated as deputy commander-in-chief.”

     Ao Tian did not mention Mo Yuan again, gently patted her head, smiled and said, ” Good, I would also like to see how much of your father and mother ‘s abilities and skills have you learned.”

    Su Su laughed but did not say a word. Tantai Ye Lie was highly poisoned and she does not know where he was hiding but she was definitely nowhere near the forthcoming warships. Although, he made previous arrangements, the position for commander he had not anticipated. Even if he had arranged quite well,  but for this group of the military without a leader..? This time she was waiting within anticipation to stamp someone and repay back with severe beatings?

“They are coming!” The one that stood as a watchman on the high platform saw the dark shadow of the enemy and shouted.

Su Su looked up, very punctual, just a right at noontime!

Previously, in the midst of the fog, giant warships gradually appeared in sight in the middle of the crowd. There were ships after ships, several large-size warships arranged in a row. Kudos to Mo Yuan, today’s fog compared to the previous ones was very thick and they can only see two or three ships in the fog. The warships behind were not visible except the surface of the red blood flag. It was like the day when they first approached the island and made the challenge, strangely, the ships paused in its place and remained motionless.

What does it mean? While Su Su was trying to analyze the movement of the opposition and their fighting array, she suddenly heard two loud sound. Bang ..bang… it was coming from the rear… … sound of warship firing off!

Uncle Ma was deployed by Sang Nuan around the side of Su Su to help in coordinating and leading the Pirates in the confrontation. At this moment, he was also standing beside Su Su, heard the explosion and his face changed dramatically. He turned his head to look quickly and saw that at the rear of Wolf Island, smoke rose rapidly and the sound of shelling lingers faintly, seemingly fighting with magnificence.

At the reef beach only Sang Leng was there leading four warships. Ma Shu was worried and whispered, “Do they intend to sneak attack from behind? Do you want us to go for support?”

Su Su narrowed her eyes, lightly hummed and replied, ” There is no need, Sang Leng will be able to hold them back, even if they get into the jungle, Sang Nuan has long made a countermeasure. Our goal is to keep the front, make sure things do not fall in chaos.”

She was just guessing why warships in the front were motionless and now she would like to see and understand. Tantai Ye Lie even if he did not use the waterway to leave the tomb, he still needs the rocks on the beach to leave the island. These ships surely came to for support and to his rescue. He was highly poisoned at the moment. These warships were here not because of zealousness. They were absolutely not interested in fighting and in the end, will definitely pull back.

But at present, the warship remained motionless, hiding inside the dense fog, she cannot see clearly how many ships were present. It was mentally and for once she worried what was behind those ships. She hesitated in making a move and not sure with her own array. If at this time, Liao Yue has more warships and threw a bite like a wild wolf, surely they will end up swallowed in their belly.

The purple copper fan turned in her hand. Su Su only wanted the front warships, spoke and said, ” Let us go up since they do not want to leave the dense fog, then let them stay there and do not let them come out.”

Su Su cracked a grin. They can stay inside the fog as long as they want because this fog was prepared for them, together with a lot of poison and assassins. She cannot waste it.

This time Su Su took the initiative to attack and indeed just as she thought, six warships lay siege of the reef beach and came to the aid of Tantai Ye Lie and what she did not expect was that Tantai Ye Lie took refuge and hiding at Wolf Island ship! The man standing on the bow was not someone else, exactly brazenly-faced and shameless, this man Xiang Erye. while early on, he came around Sang Leng offering his assistance.

Inside the cabin, Tantai Ye Lie was lying in a small wooden bed, two deputy generals were defending his side, a white beard old man was taking his pulse and he was lost for words after a long time.

The deputy generals could not bear it and asked, “How ‘s the General?”

The old man’s head was sweating and shook his head. The voice full of tremor said, “This poison is too strange and for the poison, this old man … … this old man is not able to administer and control”.

Seeing the general’s ghastly pale appearance, this military doctor was useless at this point. The heart of the deputy general was greatly irritated and shouted, “Incompetent, go away!”

After hearing the words of the old man, Tantai Ye Lie slowly opened his eyes. It was bloodshot red and his face grayish showing that the poison was attacking the arteries of the heart. He took the wooden box from under his sleeves after so much effort, handed it to the deputy general and in an intermittent speech that one could hardly hear his words, “If … … I have a mishap, this … … the box, you must be hand over to … … Father ‘s hands,. Make sure of this! “

It was like listening to the last words and confession. The deputies panicked after hearing this and they did not dare get the wooden box, anxious and urgently replied, “General don’t say that! You will certainly be alright! “

The wooden box was small and after some resistance, its cover shoved open at the seam unexpectedly. Tantai Ye Lie was staring at the wooden box and the grayish complexion became ghastly. He saw that the inside of the box was empty, nothing inside. Tantai Ye Lie was stunned also his chest was burned with anger. Suddenly felt a pungent gas gushing out then vomited black blood.

“General!” The two deputies quickly came forward.

Tantai Ye Lie shoved the deputy general’s arm that was supporting him. Staring intently at the empty wooden box, clenched his jaws, “Su Su! Well played Su Su! “

The deputy generals followed Tantai Ye Lie for many years and had never seen general appearance looked the way he looked now. Glancing at the empty wooden box they knew, the general had been fooled with certainty. In the past, the general by nature if embarrassed like this, he will not frustrate himself and repress his hate to his bone but will raise his temper against that person. But at his moment he was tightly clutching the empty box with his five fingers, blue veins sticking out, with darkened eyes of anger. In his eyes there was anger but not murderous…. it was really strange!
