“Xi’er, what’s wrong?” Murong Hui saw her expression and knew that there was a problem.
“Prince, when you were injured previously, did you use forbidden drugs?” Sima You Yue asked.
The Prince of Great Yu was secretly shocked that she was able to tell that he had taken forbidden drugs just by examining his pulse.
“By the look on Prince’s face, I take it that’s a yes.” Sima You Yue said.
“Xi’er, the Prince’s life was hanging in the balance back then and he had to use forbidden drugs to save his life.” Murong Hui said.
“Then why didn’t he stop using the forbidden drugs after his life was no longer in danger?” Sima You Yue asked: “If you had stopped using the medicine early on then you wouldn’t be in this state now.”
“The doctor said that once he starts taking the medicine he can’t stop..” Yu Yan said: “Imperial Father even decreased the dosage slowly towards the end and finally he stopped taking it.”
Sima You Yue was slightly startled and said: “Oh.”
Everyone was confused by her reaction, what did, oh, mean?
“You can stop taking forbidden drugs, but you just don’t know the correct way to do it, that’s all.” Smia You Yue said: “Although it’s no longer useful talking about this now anyway.”
“Xi’er, is he not getting better because of the use of forbidden drugs?” Murong Hui asked.
“That is one of the reasons.” Sima You Yue said: “Although the Prince has stopped using the forbidden drugs, there are still residual drugs that have remained in his body. This residual drug must be discharged from his body before we can proceed further.”
“Can it be discharged?” The Prince of Great Yu and Yu Yan were surprised: “Those doctors said that the drugs would stay in my body forever.”
“That’s what the other doctors say.” Sima You Yue said: “Only useless people would use forbidden drugs to save someone’s life.”
Upon hearing her words, the three of them twitched their mouths. Her words were… filled with hostility!
“So you have a way?” Yu Yan asked.
“There is a way but the process is a bit troublesome, mmm, and it is also a bit painful.” Sima You Yue said.
“As long as there is a way, that’s all that matters.” Murong Hui knew that if she could say this, that meant that there was no problem.
“Don’t get too excited yet, I still need some things. If I am not prepared then it will be useless.” Sima You Yue said.
“What do you need?
Sima You Yue took out a brush and paper and wrote down a list quickly. After the Prince of Great Yu read the list of items she had written down, his expression was not as relaxed as it was before.
“If you can gather these things then your forbidden drug problem can be solved.” Sima You Yue said: “If you are unable to find them, then we can only control your condition and we cannot eradicate it.”
“Can it be controlled?” The Prince of Great Yu asked.
“Even if it can be controlled, it will only prolong your life for a few more years.” Sima You Yue said: “Therefore, it is best to eradicate the problem.”
“Well, I will send someone to look for the items.” The Prince of Great Yu called a hidden guard over. He gave him the list and gave him instructions: “This must be done in secret.”
“Yes, Prince.” The hidden guard was also in the house so naturally, he knew what the list meant.
“Let me take a look.” Yu Yan said.
The hidden guard handed the list over to Yu Yan. After Yu Yan had finished reading the list and gave it back to the guard, he left.
Yu Yan saw Sima You Yue looking at him inquisitively, so he smiled and said: “I didn’t expect Young Miss Murong to be so capable. I wonder if I may ask you to check my health?”
“You are not sick, you don’t need me to take a look at you.” Sima You Yue said: “I need to give Prince acupuncture treatment.”
Murong Hui was surprised at her words, as were the Prince of Great Yu and Yu Yan.
“Second Prince, he…” Murong Hui looked at Sima You Yue then back at Yu Yan. He thought that she was being too vague.
“Ahem, you didn’t even check my pulse, how do you know I’m fine?” Yu Yan said.
Sima You Yue walked over and grabbed his wrist, then said: “On the surface, your qi and blood are insufficient, your pulse is weak and your body is deficient, however, your body is very healthy. However, taking too much medicated stone powder is not good for your body.”
Yu Yan was really shocked this time. He looked at Sima You Yue as if she was a freak.
“How did you know?”
“I am a doctor.” Sima You Yue said: “When I saw you in the morning I had already thought you looked a little strange. I just didn’t expect you to use medicated stone powder.”
“That’s amazing! Other than Yan’er and myself, no one else knows about him using medicated stone powder. I didn’t expect you to be able to tell without even checking his pulse! The Prince of Great Yu was surprised but also happy. Since she was so capable then he might have hope of recovering after all!
“Prince, before we find those items, I would like to give you acupuncture treatment to suppress your injury.” Sima You Yue said, “The method of soaking in the hot springs every few days has little effect and is very undesirable. However, the effect of acupuncture there is very good.”
“Acupuncture? How?” The Prince of Great Yu asked.
“You’ll know when you get there.” Sima You Yue said.
The four of them went over to the hot springs once again and sent away all the maids and guards.
“Prince, remove your clothes and get into the water.” Sima You Yue said and gestured. She pulled a stone stool in the courtyard and placed it into the water. The Prince of Great Yu went into the water and sat on the stool. By sitting on the stone stool, his upper body was exposed just above the water.
The Prince of Great Yu felt a little uncomfortable, but he took his clothes off anyway and sat on the stone stool.
Sima You Yue looked at Yu Yan and Murong Hui. In the end, she chose Murong Hui and said: “Imperial Father, come down and help me.”
“What do you want me to do?” Murong Hui asked.
“Help me hold the silver needles.” Sima You Yue said.
“Why don’t I go down instead?” Yu Yan said.
Sima You Yue looked at him and guessed that he might be feeling worried and wanted to be closer so he could observe and prevent her from doing anything to the Prince of Great Yu, so she nodded and agreed.
“In that case, let the Second Prince come down.”
Yu Yan came to the side of the water and followed her down, then stood beside her.
The water in the hot spring was not shallow, and the water had swept Sima You Yue’s skirt up to her waist.
She took out her box of silver needles and handed it to Yu Yan. She took a long, silver needle and pierced it into the Prince of Great Yu’s body.
When Yu Yan saw such a long needle, he was a little worried about whether it would hurt his Imperial Father when it pierced into his body. However, when he saw that his Imperial Father didn’t react at all, he knew that he had been worried over nothing.
Sima You Yue’s acupuncture treatment took a while and Yu Yan started to feel stiff in his hand. However, when he saw sweat coming out from her forehead and she hadn’t said a word of complaint, he felt a sudden urge to wipe the sweat off for her.
He had never seen a woman who was so serious when she did something, what good disposition she had.
After a while, Sima You Yue pierced the final needle into the Prince’s body, then she wiped the sweat off her forehead and said: “I’m done, it will be much quicker when I remove the needles later.”
“Thank you for your hard work.” Yu Yan said.
Sima You Yue nodded at him, then asked the Prince: “Prince, how do you feel?”
“The cold feeling in my body has lessened a lot. What method is this, it is amazing! But why do I feel like I’m getting hotter?”
