[Episode 24]

I am really sorry.

Second Master has been poisoned for 3 days. The symptoms are already manifesting.

There is no cure.

No cure?

Old Hall Master is an expert in medical knowledge. No one in this world is more superior than you.

Since you already know what poison Pingjing has,

there surely is a countermeasure against it.

How can it be totally not curable?

Old Hall Leader, no matter how rare the medicinal ingredient is,

as long as you mention it, we will find ways to find it.

We can't just watch Pingjing...

I understand the feelings of Heir and Heir's wife.

As a doctor, as long as the patients has one last breath, I am also unwilling to give up.

Ji Feng Hall indeed still has some medicines that can delay this poison.

Xi'er and I will go back now to prepare them.

It is just that even though we indeed can do some measures now,

it is also true that once the frost bone poison activates, it is already incurable.

Please be ready for the eventual outcome.

Miss Lin, say something.

It's Pingjing!

Disciple, please come near me.


You're not feeling well?

I'm fine. I might just be too happy for master.

It is now time.

May I ask what I should do?

Once you drink the water extract of the frost bone, you must take in the

gallbladder of the xuanchi before symptoms appear in 3 days.

After 7 days, the poison will be cured.

But that is only curing the poison.

It will not cure your other illness and unable to increase you internal energy.


Disciple, after drinking this frost bone extract, eat the gallbladder of xuanchi.

Once the two drugs have mixed in your body

and their levels are at its peak, transfer your blood to me.

I will not need to worry about my heart channel injuries anymore.

Once I transferred my blood to you, what will happen to me?

You will not feel pain or be ticklish. You will even be still awake.

It is just that your vital energy will wane.

You could at least survive for a few more months. Disciple, do not worry.

I surely will take good care of you in these several months.

Master! This gallbladder of xuanchi is such a rare commodity!

I worry that the quality of my body might not be good enough and just cause delay on your grand plan.

Disciple, you really have thought about it thoroughly for my sake.

You were handpicked by me and allowed to stay by my side.

No one's body is more suitable than you.


Why must you say that it is incurable? Isn't there still the gallbladder of xuanchi?

That's right. That is indeed a plausible path.

But have you seriously thought about it?

The method of cultivation using frost bone and xuanchi can increase one's energy

and even repair a sickly body. Why then can't it be spread widely?

A cultivation technique where you steal other people's Qi, blood, and life,

no matter how amazing the result is, it is still an evil technique.

For us doctors, any cure that will necessitate harming other people

is considered...


Thank you for Master's teachings. I was wrong.

It is just normal that you worry about him. Why must you be harsh on yourself?

Let's go.

Miss Lin.


What is the gallbladder of a xuanchi about?

You heard us?

It can save Pingjing, am I right?

It is an evil kind of technique.

It is against medical principles.

Miss Lin, tell me.

I won't let you leave without telling me about it.

The xuanchi snake is a rare kind of mystical snake.

Before, only a few number can be found near Yeqin.

Right now, the more it is rare. And it's gallbladder is poisonous to begin with.

Only towards the poison of frost bone is it mysteriously an effective antidote.

A poisoned and awake person can take in

the snake's gallbladder and cure the poison by channeling the Qi in his body.

But with Pingjing's situation, we can only look for someone to take in the gallbladder

and then use the blood transfer method to transfer it to the patient.

Thank you for telling me.

Elder Young Master, I am sorry.

Miss Lin,

I can see you have feelings for Pingjing.

Please don't say these words of formalities anymore.

Just believe me,

Pingjing will live. I guarantee it.

Are disciple's actions because you are afraid

or having regrets?

You told me before that you will not refuse to sacrifice your life for me.

Disciple, you cannot lie to me.

No! I'm not willing.

Headache? Irregular heart beat?

This is a sign that the poison is manifesting.

You...did you already--

Yes. Yes.

I already placed an appropriate amount of frost bone extract on your usual food.

Disciple, you should not have lied to me.

Do not rush. You really are smart.

You still remembered that after taking in the frost bone extract,

it can be cured if you take in the gallbladder of the xuanchi.

Too bad.That should be done before the poison manifests.

You liar.

You disappointed me.

But in the next few months, I still will take good care of you.

Now is the time the poisons are in peak levels in your blood.

Disciple, do not be afraid.


- Master...
- Disciple, do not be afraid.

How was it? Did you hear what Old Hall Leader and her discuss?

Guard Pingjing here. I must go out for a while.

Go out? What time is it already? Where are you going? What are you going to do?

I am guessing that there must be one person who knows

about the antidote that Old Hall Leader mentioned.


Congratulations, Respected Sect Leader, that your body has finally been cured.

Please get up. Please get up.

Since Respected Sect Leader's treatment was a success,

then this additional xuanchi will be of no use now.

Who says that it is useless? This is the only

mystical xuanchi snake here in Great Liang.

Xiao Pingjing is still currently poisoned by frost bone.

It is already hard for Auntie Yun to have hurt Xiao Pingjing.

Could it be Respected Sect Leader is willing to cure him?

If other people are poisoned and is incurable, it is indeed frightening.

But for the Heir of Chang Lin,

what is most frightening

is clearly knowing that there is an antidote

but it is in my hands.

Heir of Chang Lin?

My aim was never Xiao Pingjing.


If Heir wants to get any useful information from me,

must you really wait that long to start?

I know that this is the Celestial Prison of Great Liang.

This surely has all kinds of torturing devices. Heir surely was not planning to

test all the torture methods here on me first, right?

Since you are going to tell me about it anyway,

why say so many nonsense to waste both our time and energy?

I am going to tell you about it anyway?

On what basis are you saying that?

All the underlings of Puyang Ying,

even a Langya master like Duan Tongzhou,

will commit suicide if they think that they will not be able to escape anymore.

While you, you clearly will be sentenced to death

and had several chances to commit suicide.

Why then are you still alive?

Could it be that you just wanted to continue living to suffer the tortures?

There is already no one around. Just tell me what message

Puyang Ying wants to relay to me.

You indeed are the Heir of Chang Lin.

Wu Ji, just ask what you want to ask me.

I already understand what the desire of Respected Leader's heart is based on

our every step until today. It is just that...

It is just what?

It is just that frost bone and xuanchi are both rare items in this world.

No matter how smart the Heir of Chang Lin is, no matter how able the people around him are,

he might not realize that there is still one more antidote

that is in your hands.

No need to worry. I will arrange for someone

to let him know about it very clearly.

That is the only things that I can say about the xuanchi gallbladder.

Is Heir satisfied?

Since you have already said 70% of the message, why not just say it all?

I am not sure how long Pingjing can last. The area outside is vast, so how am I going to find him?

Since Puyang Ying wants to use this antidote as an exchange,

why don't you just directly point me to a direction?

No need for me to do that.

That Young Prince of Laiyang was acting mysteriously

and had been monitoring the Qian Tian Court for several days already.

He knows a little bit about the general direction outside the city.

Heir is not expecting for Respected Leader to lead you directly to his doorsteps, right?




Finely grind these two medicines.


Master...I just feel so helpless.

No matter how I test the poison of frost bone, how many medicines I find,

in the end...I still cannot find anything better than the xuanchi's gallbladder.

Old Hall Leader, a letter from Chang Lin Manor.

Is there news?

Heir said in his letter that he went to the Celestial Prison to interrogate Sister Yun.

He now knew where the xuanchi gallbladder can be found. He is going to go see Puyang Ying.

When the Wei brothers and Puyang Ying's assistant

are frequently communicating in and out of the capital before,

I indeed tried following them several times.

But I kept losing them whenever I reach an area in the western side of the city.

I never saw any specific location where they might be hiding.

I also do not understand why that Sister Yun said that I know about it.

Having a probable direction and scope is enough already.

In this scheme that Puyang Ying devised, he surely will not

make every step easy for me.

Brother Pingzhang, this crazy person is sinister and cunning.

He won't tell you about the antidote without an ulterior motive.

You have to guard against it.

I understand. I will send someone to inform High Commander Xun.

We will set out tomorrow morning. Let us meet outside the city.



If Heir really found the xuanchi gallbladder, does it mean that Pingjing...

There are criminal sentenced to death in the prison. It will not be hard for them to find a life in place of his.

I believe that with the might of the House of Chang Lin, they do not lack people who are willing to die for them.

- But...
- But in the eyes of a doctor, everyone is equal.

Using an evil technique like this to save someone is against the principles of healing.

Master surely will not pass on the technique to anyone. But...

If I am willing to sacrifice myself,

I hope you'll understand and forgive me.


Let's see about finding a method

that doesn't hurt an innocent life.

If we are going to include the xuanchi's gallbladder in our considerations,

maybe we can still find a way to cure the poison. What do you think?



You didn't sleep all night,

You are a doctor. You should know that sleeping for 4 hours more

is more effective than cooking medicines like that.


Listen to me.


After you rest, go to Chang Lin Manor.

Try and see the method for hastening the blood flow of the blood vessels which we found, whether it's effective.


If I think of any new ideas, I'll send someone to notify you.

Go rest now.


The disciples of Puyang Ying gathered here to contact the outside world.

Based on the duration he took, the Xuanling Cave which Sister Yun mentioned

should be somewhere along this mountain.

It won't be beyond Changgu Ravine.

Sect Leader, there isn't any movement from our warning posts on the mountains.

Only a day and a night has passed since the poison took effect in Xiao Pingjing.

We have to give the Heir to Chang Lin Manor some time to prepare. We have to wait.

Sect Leader, will Xiao Pingzhang really come?

They are not biological brothers.

Blood relations

is not as important as you think.

Sometimes, those who are related by blood

are even more ruthless than those who are strangers.


Old Master.

Old Master.

You came back directly from Wei Mountain?

Yes, after I went to His Majesty and informed him,

I went with the medicinal officers to gather the herbs.

Everyone at Wei Mountain was jubilant when news of the curfew at Capital was dismissed.

They were overjoyed.

But as there was a lot of preparations to be done for His Majesty's return,

I couldn't wait so I rushed back on my own.

Teacher, what has happened?

You came back just in time.

Everything on earth has its own nemesis. Within a hundred steps, every creature has its own predator.

Most of ingredients for the making of Frost Bone come from Yeqin.

You are more familiar with the flora and fauna than Xi'er and me.

You can be a great help to both of us.

Come with me to Chang Lin Manor.

What are you talking about? Frost Bone?

Someone has concocted Frost Bone?

We have inspected the surroundings. What we can be sure about is

Xuanling Cave should be within this area.

Since we can confirm its location,

no matter how concealed Xuanling Cave is, it won't be difficult to find.

But it's not just about finding the cave opening.

No matter what Puyang Ying's motive is,

he won't put his life on the line.

So Xuaning Cave must have an escape route.

We can surround the entire mountain.

No matter how great is Puyang Ying's escape plan,

can he dig an underground passage in there and flee to that mountain?

Puyang Ying has always been very cautious.

He knew that I would be here,

so he would have set up safeguards around the area.

If Puyang Ying discovers that we surround the mountain, what would he do?

He'd call off the negotiation and escaped before we can surround him.

If he escapes,

there goes Pingjing's last chance of survival.

So we can't let him escape.

We must surround the mountain, just that we must be careful about it.

Sect Leader,

I have made the necessary arrangements according to your plan.

I will take care of the rest of the matters.

Just that I feel that it's best that you leave as soon as you can.

What if they surround the mountain?

Xiao Pingjing is a smart person. He knows very well that

if I discover that they are surrounding the mountain,

our deal will be called off automatically.

We can't rush matters.


In order not to raise his alarm, we must move back

double the distance and surround the mountain.

In order to surround such a big area,

there's not enough manpower, even with Chang Lin Manor,

Capital Patrol and Imperial Palace guards combined.

There's not enough manpower from the capital.

But we still have Cui Feng Armed Escort from the eastern county.

Pingzhang, are you crazy?

Cui Feng Armed Escort is the Royal family's Imperial Guards.

His Majesty is not in the capital. Without the royal decree,

how are you able to mobilize them?

The late emperor had bestowed an order token on Chang Lin Manor.

There's no rush. There's nothing we can do to rush it.

The heir to Prince of Chang Lin Manor is reputed to be a kind person.

For the sake of his reputation, he has to make this trip.

Son, don't be afraid. I'm here to take care of you.

I heard many physicians are here in the capital.

I'll go and look for them.

Unless it's a matter of life and death, no one will know

was the concern given to you genuine or not?

You are so sound asleep.

Continue to sleep.

Eat it.

The authority to mobilize the Armed Escort of the royal family is given by the late emperor,

at the same time, it's my sole decision.

I must make the arrangements personally.

You can reach back here if you get there tonight.

I'm afraid that the longer it takes,

Puyang Ying will get suspicious.

Why do you think he lured me to here

and only gave me an approximate location?

Because he knew that we would be ore anxious than he is.

So he wanted me to behave recklessly with this tough task.

That's right.

I have to trouble you with this task

of surrounding the mountain.

Pingjing, I was careless regarding Li Gu.

But, please be assured that there won't be any mistakes this time.

I go take a look at Pingjing. You don't have to follow me out of the capital. Things are more important in the Manor.

Please be rest assured. But you have to use the late emperor's order this time,

don't you have to send a letter and report to His Majesty?

I don't have to send this letter.

Commander Xun will report this to His Majesty.

But you didn't assign Commander to report this to His Majesty just now.

Commander of the Imperial Palace Guards is a close minister to His Majesty.

He knows very well what he should and shouldn't do.

Chang Lin Manor has no authority to assign him to do anything.

What you said is right. I understand now.

[Heir to Chang Lin Manor is using the late emperor's order token to mobilize Cui Feng Armed Escort...]

[Secret Letter]


High Commander.

Get my Imperial Pass, travel nonstop to Wei Mountain, and hand it over to His Majesty.


You know, Pingjing has been strong eve when he was a newborn.

I have almost never seen him get sick.

When he was 13, he secretly ran to the northern borders

and got driven by Royal Father to the left army to stay there and await orders.

However, they met an ambush and he got trapped in Yanzhang Mountain for 2 months.

In the end, almost everyone has injuries and sickness

but he was totally alright.

All the elders said

that he indeed was a son of a great general.

That's why, he surely will be well this time.

I surely will not let anything happen to him.


are you hiding something from me?


Xiao Xue, I interrogated Sister Yun.

From her, I learned that Pingjing's poison is curable.

In other words, there is a cure?

That's great.

But how come you still look so sad?

Is this medicine very hard to find?

It is a kind of snake. The gallbladder of the xuanchi snake

is just in the hands of Puyang Ying.

You are going to look for Puyang Ying?

I must find the antidote.

Also, I have to seek revenge for the numerous lives in

Jinling Ciy and Chixia Town.

No matter what, I won't let him escape this time.

But, he is crazy!

I know.

Puyang Ying is a person that thinks meticulously, is sinister, cold, and heartless.

This time, he used up all his pawns

to finally obtain Pingjing's life as a bargaining chip.

The thing he is scheming behind this

is surely something that he thinks will benefit him more, or...

a more important person.

A more important person?

A more important person?

Are you that person?

I will not let him hurt you even by one bit.

Listen well. No matter where you go, you must bring me with you!

Puyang Ying dared to lure me to go to him. What he wants us to compete against

surely isn't martial arts skills. There will be of no use if you follow me.

In reality, he already got the upper hand.

Even if I do everything I can and prepare for it,

I fear that in the end, it will still be a very difficult situation.

You understand?

I understand.

Pingjing's life is now in his hands.

And I must go to him

to get the antidote no matter what.

Xiao Xue.

If I eventually make a decision that are odds with everyone's,

will you still stand by my side?

Pingzhang, whatever you think is right,

I will take your side even if you are at odds with everyone else.

Xiao Xue, I really owe you so much.

If there is a next life, let us be husband and wife again.

I will repay in double everything that I owed you.

I don't want the next life.

I want to be married to you in eternity.

♫ There is little intention to return the real men to the war in the north, though willing, they are not given free rein ♫

♫ Good bows hoarded; likewise, so as not to injure, sigh against the way of heaven when stored indefinitely ♫

♫ Clouds of fear calm shameful waves, the night air stops their bickering by starlight ♫
