Chapter 18: Behave! Continue Sleeping!

The young boy looked at Ji Fengyan, his eyes unmoving and emotionless.
“Uh… The injuries on your body have yet to recover, take a rest first.” Ji Fengyan smiled as she said so. If not for her young age, her tone would have definitely sounded like a weird woman trying to abduct an innocent young boy.
Suddenly, the young boy spoke, “I am not called Liu Huo.”
“…” Ji Fengyan was stunned.
How much did this fellow overhear exactly?
The young boy slightly frowned and when he was about to open his mouth to speak, Ji Fengyan suddenly bit her fingers, and using the fresh blood flowing from her fingertip, she drew a strange talisman between his brows at lightning speed.
The moment that she finished her last stroke, the young boy’s expression froze and his confused eyes widened slightly. The next instant, he abruptly closed his eyes and remained rested on the bed, his body stiffened, as if he had fallen asleep again.
There was a faint stench of blood in the room. Ji Fengyan looked at the young boy who had become unconscious again and heaved a sigh of relief.
The two guards standing outside were dumbstruck.
Their Miss’s blood… really was poisonous?!
Miss was going to… silence the boy???
Ji Fengyan did not know that the rumour of her blood being poisonous had already spread among the guards. Her actions just now was out of her reflex. Truly, she simply did not know how to deal with the questions of a handsome boy who had been taken advantage of by her.
So, might as well use a tally to let him continue sleeping!
Ji Fengyan looked at the young boy who had once again fallen unconscious before she stood up. When she saw the two dumbfounded guards at the door, she cleared her throat and turned her eyes away as she walked out.
After Ji Fengyan had left, the two guards secretly entered the room and felt for the boy’s breath. They were relieved when they found him still breathing.
Ji Fengyan returned to the front yard from the backyard, and as she sat in the hall, she scanned through the group of guards who were either sitting or standing. When this group of people had set off from the capital, there were still about 30 to 40 of them, but after that sudden ambush earlier on, almost half of them had died, leaving only about 10 people now, most of whom were wounded, some even heavily injured.
In the miserable-looking yard, there was still a faint stench of blood.
Linghe hurriedly rushed back in the evening. When he came back, the guards who had accompanied him on the way were each carrying a parcel. They stood before Ji Fengyan and placed the parcels in front of her.
Linghe was stunned, these ordinary herbs had cost them almost half a piece of gold!
“Miss, the medicinal herbs that you wanted could not be found in the medicine shop, so we could only bring back whatever we could find,” Linghe said.
Ji City was not big and there were not many medicine shops, so they had only managed to obtain little from combing almost the entire city.
Ji Fengyan snapped out of her thoughts and directly walked to the parcels. When she opened each of them, the parcels were completely packed with bitter herbs—they were not any different from the ones she had seen in her previous life. The missing herbs that could not be found were also not very important.
Finally, Ji Fengyan could be at ease.
“Very well, carry these to the backyard,” Ji Fengyan said as she waved her hands in the air.
“Miss what do you intend to do with these?” Linghe asked.
Ji Fengyan slightly raised her brows. “To refine elixirs!”
