Chapter 316 – Last Hope
Nangong Yu grabbed Gu Liufeng’s collar and dragged him back like a small chicken, throwing him in front of Hexi. Then, leaning close to her, he softly whispered, “Reward!”
Hexi remained silent. Looking over, she saw him with his face turned to the side and staring at her with a look which explicitly demanded that she kisses him. Hexi immediately turned away.
Nangong Yu wasn’t annoyed. Instead, he took her into his arms and lightly pecked her on a corner of her mouth, and then with a husky voice, he whispered in her ear, “Princess refused to take the initiative and reward me, so I had to collect it for myself. I had to exert myself and make an effort; I can’t lose at all!”
“Scoundrel!” Hexi fiercely glared at him, then turned her head away and refused to look at him. However, both of her cheeks were bright crimson.
Feng Yunjing saw this scene from where he was standing, and his expression suddenly became gloomy. A cold aura, like a poisonous snake, seemed to circulate within his deep eyes.
Suddenly, an ear-piercing scream came from within the medicinal field.
The martial artists who’d been unconscious in the medicinal field abruptly started to awaken; one after the other.
But the red rash on everyone’s faces had morphed into red and purple blood blisters; some people’s blisters seeming to grow faster than others. In a moment, the blood blisters continued to swell, and then pop!
Next, yellow-red blood flowed down their bodies; their appearances were even more horrible than the evil spirits that crawled out of hell.
The faces’ of everyone standing outside the medicinal field were full of fear, and they quickly rushed backwards.
Some of those who had small guts and a weak tolerance had already started wailing while rushing to the side and vomiting.
The medicinal field before their eyes was like a scene of hell on earth.
Abruptly, a person whose whole body was decaying, his original appearance unrecognisable, rushed while stumbling towards Feng Lian Ying.
He kneeled down in front of Feng Lian Ying, hissing and wailing, “Ice Lotus Fairy, save me! I’m Shangguan Rui!”
“You can break the Mind Confusion scent; you must have a way to heal us! You’re also the direct disciple of Thousand Venom Valley’s Master! No one in the world can save us except for you! I’m begging you!”
When Shangguan Rui said this, everyone in the medicinal field who had been filled with despair suddenly latched onto those words as their last hope.
People immediately surged towards Feng Lian Ying like a tide, and shouted, “Ice Lotus Fairy, save us!!”
These people were currently unaware of how horrible their appearances were at this moment.
Moreover, even after having been alive for so many years, none of them had ever seen such a terrible illness before.
Now, they all had the appearances of zombies; it was almost like they’d been sentenced to the death penalty.
However, while no one really wanted to die, they also didn’t want to live as they were either. As long as there was a glimmer of hope, they would hang on to it at all costs.
What’s more, who in all of Mi Luo Continent didn’t know of Ice Lotus Fairy’s reputation.
At such a young age she was already a fifth rank doctor, an intermediate level member of the Doctors Association, and a direct disciple of Thousand Venom Valley’s Master.
With her here, maybe they still had a chance…No! With Ice Lotus Fairy here, they would undoubtedly be saved!
Feng Lian Ying saw all of their sinister and disgusting faces, and the fear and loathing in her heart reached extreme levels.
She felt like the air was filled with a fishy smell, making her itch to kick these nauseating people away.
However, it was at this moment that Wu Yu waved his fan, and raised his voice as he said, “Everyone can rest assured, Ice Lotus Fairy has the heart of a Bodhisattva; kind and charitable. When everyone is suffering so terribly, how could she just bear watching?”
“Not to mention, her medical skills are excellent, and she has a crucial position in the Doctors Association. Naturally, she can find a way to heal you. If even this cannot be done, wouldn’t she be ruining her name as Ice Lotus Fairy?”
