“I won’t do it next time.” Wu Lingyu said softly, “Really.”
1Sima You Yue pushed his head away and got off the bed. Turning around to glare pointedly at him, she said, “As if I’d believe you!”
Wu Lingyu laughed. Actually, he didn’t feel like it was possible either. As long as he thought of her, how could he care for himself?
Sima You Yue glared at him, straightened her clothes, opened the door and left.
Little Seven was currently watching the ants moving their home. When she saw her come out, she beamed as she asked, “Yue Yue, did you sleep well yesterday?”
Sima You Yue did not feel anything initially, but being questioned like this set her face aflame.
“Cough cough, where did you run off to yesterday?” She changed the topic.
Little Seven stood up and tossed away the stick in her hand, saying with a smirk, “After seeing your Senior Brother, you forgot all about me, so I went off to play on my own!’
When did this brat learn how to be so cheeky?
“Then why did you come here?”
“I came to remind you that we should go over to treat Shi Qiu Shuang.” Little Seven said, “After seeing how excited you were yesterday, I was afraid you would go too hard at it and forget.”
Go- go too hard at it??
Sima You Yue pinched her little face, “Who taught you this rubbish?”
“Hehe, it’s not rubbish!” Little Seven whipped her face out of her grasp and said, “When are we going over to Shi Qiu Shuang’s place?”
“Let’s go now.” Sima You Yue siad, “It’ll be exactly a day after fig we go now. We can set up the medicinal bath.”
“Where are you going?” Wu LIngyu came out from the house. Although he revitalised a bit, his eyes still held traces of weariness.
“I have something i need to do. You should wait in the house.”
“I want to go too.” Wu Lingyu said.
“What would you go for?!” Sima You Yue immediately rejected him, “Your body is so weak right now. You should rest at home!”
“I’ve already improved a lot. Just let me come with you!” Wu Lingyu said.
“No way, you have to rest at home to heal.” Sima You Yue said, “You told me just now that you would take care of your body. What? Are you going to go back on your word now?”
Alright, he couldn’t go back on his words right now. Otherwise, she really wouldn’t trust him anymore.
“Then when will you return?”
“I’ll be back at night. I’m just going over to set up a medicinal bath.” Sima You Yue siad, “Didn’t you head over to Memory Restaurant to wait for me? How could you not know what I was doing there?”
“I only knew you were there because of your aura. I didn’t know what you were doing there.” Wu Lingyu said, “Also, I had just arrived when I heard that you were about to come out, so I didn’t head in.”
Ah, so that’s what happened.
“It’s getting late. Let’s talk again once we reach home. About what I’m doing there.” Sima You Yue said.
“Alright, then I’ll wait for you to come home.”
“Mm, we’ll set off now. Remember to strengthen your body when you’re home. I fed you a pill last night, so you’re still under its effects now.”
“I got it.” Wu Lingyu was beaming till his eyes were crescents. This brat, did she forget that he was an alchemist as well? “Right, do you have any more of those golden snake fruits?”
“Yes, do you need it?”
“Yeah, my little Qilin got injured, so the golden snake fruit will help it to recover quicker.” Wu Lingyu said.
Sima You Yue nodded and took out a golden snake fruit from her spirit pagoda and handed it over to him before leaving with Little Seven.
Once they reached Memory Restaurant, they found Shi Qian Zhi already waiting there for her.
“We’ve found most of the ingredients that you asked for. However, a few of them are rarer and we couldn’t find any.” Shi Qian Zhi said, “See if you have any of those missing ingredients.”
Sima You Yue didn’t think that Shi Qian Zhi would prepare the ingredients for her. She had merely mentioned it yesterday, and he had remembered them all. He had even prepared most of them. Based on this point alone you could see that his personality wasn’t bad.
She inspected the ingredients and realised that they were missing a few of the rarer ones. However, she had them all in her spirit pagoda, and it would not affect her treatment today.
She got someone to move all the items over to the house when Shi Qiu Shuang was living in, then she chased everyone out.
“Shi Qian Zhi, you have to go out as well. Don’t poke around here. You’ll see the result at the end.”
As she spoke, she chased Shi Qian Zhi out.
Shi Qian Zhi could not relax as he looked at Shi Qiu Shuang, who also chased him out.
“Senior Brother, relax. It will be fine with You Yue here.”
Shi Qian Zhi looked at her speechlessly. How could she have so much faith in this guy! However, since she was chasing him out as well, he could only head outside.
They had already finished preparing the medicinal bath, and Sima You yue only had to place the things in in the correct quantities. Then, she had to see whether or not the medicinal bath was going well, and if it wasn’t, she would have to add in a few more refined ingredients.
She prepared the slurry of medication and came to the bedside. She told Shi Qiu Shuang that they were about to begin, and she carried her up and placed her into the wooden bucket.
“Using medicine to strengthen your body will be more painful. You have to persevere.” Sima You Yue said as she placed her inside.
Shi Qiu Shuang understood what Sima You Yue meant the moment she got in. Pain! Too painful! Every part of her body cried out in agony that shot right to her bones as she almost wanted to give up on the medicinal bath immediately.
“Think about why you want to do this.” Sima You Yue reminded her.
“I will not give up! No matter how much it hurts, I will hold on.” Shi Qiu Shuang ground out.
“I believe you.” Sima You Yue said.
Shi Qiu Shuang was in so much pain that she was trembling. She noticed how Sima You Yue looked uncomfortable, she asked, “Did you use this medicinal bath before?”
“I did. In the beginning, I took one once a day. At the end, I took it once every ten days. Now I take it once a month!” Sima You Yue said, “If you know how to refine ingredients, you can continue to persevere. This is very useful for cultivation.”
The black coloured water slowly turned clear, and Sima You Yue was waiting for this moment as she refined many herbs. Once the water was clear, she placed them all in.
After repeating this three times, the medicinal bath was considered done today.
iThe moon was already high in the sky by the time that Sima You Yue got home, and Wu Lingyu was at the window, absorbing the essence from the moon. He knew the moment that she stepped through the door and opened her eyes, waiting for her to come in.
1Sima You Yue found that it was rather strange for him to be sitting at the roof. Seeing him wave, she flew over to sit beside him.
“What are you doing on the roof?”
“Aren’t I being obedient and recuperating?” Wu Lingyu said, “You look a lot better than you did yesterday.”
“I was helping someone purge themselves of poison yesterday, so I used up quite a bit of my energy. I just went to make a medicinal bath for her today, so I didn’t need to do that much. How is your body now? Let me check.”
As she said, she moved to grab his wrist, but her hand was wrapped inside his palm instead.
