Chapter 1395 Meets with trouble
After stepping into the fifth peak, the medicinal fragrance in the air became stronger. Perhaps she came too early, or every cave had a boundary. So, there were no sounds of people refining pills, but the medicinal scent was filling the air.
“On the left, the seventh cave-dwelling…”
She murmured softly, looking at the caves. Finally, her gaze fell on the seventh cave. When she arrived at the cave’s exterior, an attendant alchemist apprentice was guarding.
“I’m here to deliver the spirit herbs.” She spoke, basket in hand.
“Eh? There’s a personnel change?” The apprentice looked at Feng Jiu in surprise, then said, “Come in!” With that, he took her inside, to the place where the spirit herbs were arranged.
Walking into the cave, Feng Jiu couldn’t help sighing inwardly. Sure enough, the treatment of alchemists is different. The cave was just a gate outside, but it was a universe inside. Other than several rooms which should be room for resting, alchemy room and bathing room. Any one of them was much larger than the cave where she worked as an odd-jobber.
Inside, listening to the alchemy room where someone was refining pills, it seemed a person was murmuring about this thing was wrong, another thing was incorrect, and so on.
“Alright, just put the spirit herbs here. I’ll send it to the alchemy room later.” The apprentice asked Feng Jiu to leave the herbs.
“Alright.” She took out the spirit herbs. After putting the last herb, she told him again, “I’ll go first. I still need to go somewhere else.”
“Go ahead.” The alchemy apprentice nodded his head and looked at Feng Jiu’s departure. Only then did he tidy up those spirit herbs and take them to the alchemy room.
Feng Jiu didn’t go to the sixth peak immediately. Instead, she went around the fifth peak to familiarize herself with the place. When she came to the third cave of the sixth peak, she didn’t see any alchemist apprentice guarding outside. So she called out.
“Is anyone there? I’m here to deliver spirit herbs.”
It was extremely quiet and nobody answered. She thought about it and walked towards the place. However, as soon as she stepped into the cave, she saw an alchemist apprentice collapsed on the ground. The medicinal scent was still lingering in the air.
Her look changed at the smell of the elixir and she stepped in immediately to look over. These potions had no effect on her, thanks to her special physique. However, if one inhaled the drug’s scent, one would be either in a coma or mentally impaired. Since it was an alchemist’s cave, the person should have understood the nature of the elixir. How did this happen?
Puzzled, she first dragged the apprentice outside, then went inside. When she came to the alchemy room, she saw a person lying on the ground. Compared with the unconscious alchemist apprentice outside, the man had some marks of the furnace explosion on his body. It was obvious that he was injured by the debris. He was bleeding in many places and his breathing was weak.
She quickly stepped forward to move the man out of the cave so that he could breathe fresh air. Then she checked his physical condition and then simply helped him to deal with the wound, and only then she quickly called for help.
“Somebody, help! There’s an accident. An alchemist is hurt…”
As she ran, she shouted. Each cave was at least fifty meters apart. Some alchemist apprentices heard her cry and rushed to help her. Finally, several apprentices along with her took the two people to the pharmacy division for treatment.
Watching the two people sent for treatment, Feng Jiu exhaled lightly and sat down outside the pharmacy division.
