DE Book 4, Chapter 14 – Revered Master
Ji Ishwin walked by himself on the stone brick road, his forehead furrowed in thought. He knew that this affair would be a tough trial for the Ji clan, but any organization which wanted to survive in this world would have to be able to endure repeatedly trials! After passing them, the roots of the clan would naturally grow deeper and grow more powerful. But if they weren’t able to pass them, then the clan would be exterminated! It would be lucky if even a few survivors managed to flee and pass down the bloodline.
“Master.” Some of the servants knelt down on the side to welcome him.
Ishwin walked into his residence, then headed back to the place where he normally stayed. Suddenly, a female servant hurriedly rushed over. Upon seeing Ishwin, she was so frightened, she immediately knelt down.
“Why are you in such a rush? Consider your image!” Ishwin frowned and barked.
“Master.” The female servant’s face was white with tension. “Madame, Madame, she…”
Ishwin’s face instantly changed. “What’s wrong with Snow?”
“Madame fainted!” The female servant said frantically.
“Fainted?” Ishwin’s face instantly turned white. As an expert Ki Refiner, how could she faint? If his wife fainted, there could only be one reason.
“Snow!” Ishwin instantly turned into a gust of wind, disappearing from that area.
Within the room.
Yuchi Snow was quietly lying on the bed. Her face was rather pale, but her features were still so beautiful, so calm.
“Snow.” Ishwin instantly appeared within the room. Seeing his wife lying there, he hurriedly walked forward and carefully inspected her. He couldn’t help but glance at the female servant. “What exactly happened?”
The female servant was shaking in terror, and had knelt down long ago. “Master, the Madame had been drinking tea and was perfectly fine. Nobody touched the Madame, and nobody spoke with the Madame. But suddenly, the Madame’s body turned weak and she just collapsed. All of us panicked. I carefully lifted the Madame back into the room, while Keepleaf went to call you, Master.”
“How could this happen.” A look of agony was on Ishwin’s face. “How could this happen! Quick, quick, go have Shaman Cao immediately come over!”
“Yes.” The female servant immediately retreated, leaving behind only Ishwin and his wife in the room.
Ishwin sat at the side of the bed, looking at his wife. He stretched his hand out to stroke her face, murmuring, “Is this day truly here? When you gave birth to Ning, I feared that this day would come. I don’t believe it. I don’t believe it. You will definitely survive. I will accompany you and we will both watch our son become into an incredible hero.”
A big-bearded old man dressed in filthy animal skins walked in. His body naturally carried an herbal fragrance. Shamans and apothecaries were a group of people who had a great deal of experience in natural herbs and remedies. The boundless world was a very miraculous place, and it had all sorts of curious types of things living within it. Even the most seemingly ordinary herbs, once combined in a certain manner, could have some unique effects.
This Shaman Cao was one of the most skilled in herbs in the Ji clan of the West Prefecture.
“Shaman Cao.” Ishwin looked towards the big-bearded elder. “My wife just fainted for no reason. You take a look.”
“Commander, please step back.” Shaman Cao said in his hoarse voice, and Ishwin hurriedly moved to the side, stepping back to make way for him. Shaman Cao stretched out his dry hand, as skinny as a chicken claw, placing it against Snow’s forehead. Instantly, a spot of green light was birthed from Shaman Cao’s palm, and it began to slowly seep into Snow’s body.
A very strong herbal odor began to fill the area.
Shaman Cao closed his eyes. After a long time, Shaman Cao took his hand back. As for Snow, who had previously been in a state of unconsciousness, her eyebrows trembled, and then she opened her eyes.
“Snow.” Ishwin, shocked and overjoyed, hurriedly went forward while at the same time looking at Shaman Cao. “How is my wife?”
“Please forgive me for my inability.” Shaman Cao shook his head. “Commander, you’d best go invite the clan leader.”
“The clan leader?” Ishwin’s heart clenched.
The clan leader was the clan leader for the entire Five Prefectures of the Ji clan. His name was Ji Ninefire. An old fellow who had lived for nearly four hundred years, a true ancestor of the Ji clan. Of course, he was also a Zifu Disciple! Ji Ninefire loved to research, and had significant accomplishments in both formations, medicines, and poisons. In terms of medical treatment, he was naturally incomparably superior to Shaman Cao.
“I’ll immediately take Snow over to him.” Ishwin said hurriedly.
“No.” Shaman Cao said hurriedly. “Commander, you cannot be rash. The Madame currently can’t withstand any shaking or bumping. She needs to quietly recuperate. If you can invite the clan leader to come, that would be for the best.” Shaman Cao came to a halt. He knew that inviting the clan leader to come would be very difficult.
Ishwin nodded, then immediately instructed a nearby maidservant, “Immediately go invite Commander Ji Redflower over.”
Redflower, dressed in red clothing, walked in. “Ishwin, what do you need me for?”
