In the end, Luo Qing Chen defeated the python. She didn’t know how she had done it, she just knew that when it had died, she stumbled over to Feng Si Zui who had already lost consciousness.
The blood fell down her arm drop by drop, but she didn’t feel any pain. All she felt was fear.
“Feng Si Zui.” She was panting as she softly called his name.
She felt her eyelids get heavier before falling at his side.
She had a very long dream which was already clear enough. She had already met Feng Si Zui on Purple Phoenix Mountain before, he had come hunting and she came with her father.
It was an accidental meeting and they fell in love at first sight, promising themselves to each other, but they were unlucky enough to meet the Blood Bone Snake.
The two were both injured and were saved by a hermit on Purple Phoenix Mountain. He killed the snake and took out the gallbladder, but it could only be used on one person.
Feng Si Zui had the expert save her and that expert was the daoist who said those words to Feng Si Zui in the palace all those years later.
“The emperor should know better than anyone where the cure is.”
The red eyes snake, blood as poison, bones as life, and gallbladder as medicine. Once you swallowed the gallbladder, you would be in a coma for several months, but then your blood will be medicine that cures all poison.
When she opened her eyes, she was in a thatch hut. There was a strong scent of herbs in the air, as well as a faint scent of blood.
The person in front was not someone she knew, but there was a strange sense of familiarity.
“You’re awake?” When Yan Xiu looked at her, he could tell what she was thinking from her eyes and directly said, “Relax, I’ve taken a bit of medicine from you and protected his heart for now, but he won’t last that long.”
Luo Qing Chen slightly knit her brows. Her eyes as clear as water were calm as she said with a deep breath, “Thank you.”
As soon as her voice fell, she got out of bed and slowly walked over to where Feng Si Zui was lying.
His face was still pale without any blood, but his lips were no longer black in colour.
“Why aren’t you asking what kind of medicine I took from you?” Yan Xiu’s clear eyes had a sparkle. He had to admit that the girl in front of him was very special.
He thought that after such a dangerous matter, she would definitely panic and would even cry, asking him to help.
But he never thought that she would be this calm.
“Blood.” She raised her right hand and gently placed her palm on Feng Si Zui’s eyes, “My blood, right!”
When everything connected, when all the memories came together, the truth suddenly became clear.
“You really are intelligent.” Yan Xiu stopped making his decoction to look at her, “The poison of the python and the Blood Bone Snake are different, the emperor's current situation doesn’t look good.”
“You know he is the emperor?” Luo Qing Chen slightly knit her brows as a bit of a sparkle appeared in them.
“Miss Luo probably doesn’t remember it too clearly.” Yan Xiu narrowed his eyes, “Five years ago, when you met the last Blood Bone Snake in the world on Purple Phoenix Mountain, I was the one who saved you.”
Luo Qing Chen’s fingers suddenly trembled and a faint mist appeared in her eyes.
As expected, there was no difference from the dream. He had made the choice back then, the choice to save her.
“Thank you.” Luo Qing Chen closed her eyes and her voice trembled a bit.
She could feel the sensation of parting, but this time she would be the one making the choice.
Time passed and all things reincarnated, this was probably life could have a long history.
