The Marriage of an Esteemed Supreme Healer, a Noble Ruler - Chapter 2241
Chu Liuyue looked up.
The ripples of the void fluctuation covered that person’s appearance and figure. Only a tall man could barely be seen.
He didn’t walk out. His entire body seemed to be enveloped in that blurry fog.
Even his voice sounded like it came from afar.
“Eighth Deity, do you now regard the entire medicinal mountain as your private property?” The voice was cold and calm, but it carried a heavy pressure. Every word was like a heavy rock falling, making it difficult to breathe.
Shu Jing’s face turned pale. She immediately lowered her head and said with a hint of panic, “Shu Jing wouldn’t dare!”
Everyone around held their breaths. It was so quiet that they could hear the rustling of the leaves.
At this moment, it was as if the huge space had frozen!
Chu Liuyue’s brows moved slightly. Who is this person? He can actually make Shu Jing, the Eighth Deity, so respectful and polite—and even… rather afraid and reverent?
The person continued, “You don’t dare? Then, do you dare to say that this farce today didn’t happen because you relied on your status to do whatever you want?”
Shu Jing was shocked. Only then did she realize that the other party had come because of this!
But at the end of the day, this is just a competition between two heavenly doctors. Similar scenes often happen in Fantasy Divine Palace, so it isn’t a big deal. The person in front of me rarely appears. Every time he appears, he is representing that person. However, why did this matter alarm that person?
Countless thoughts flashed through Shu Jing’s mind. It was extremely chaotic, and her mind was in a mess; she couldn’t figure it out no matter what.
She pursed her lips and defended herself. “It seems like you’ve misunderstood something. What happened today was mainly because Shangguan Yue wanted to take the dragon-taming nut. However, she’s not a Supreme Physician and doesn’t have a bloodline totem. She’s not allowed to take this top-notch medicinal herb. I tried to persuade her a few times, but she was still very insistent. In the end, she was the one who suggested that she wanted to compete with Liang He—”
In other words, the source of all this was Chu Liuyue.
“If she wants to use it, just give it to her. Why are you deliberately making things difficult for her?” The other party interrupted her.
Shu Jing frowned. “This… I’ve never deliberately made things difficult for her. I’m just acting according to the rules. I—”
“Rules?” That person seemed to laugh. “Whose rules?”
Shu Jing was instantly speechless. Her lips trembled slightly, and her entire body was wrapped in a layer of coldness.
She had been in charge of the medicinal mountain for many years and had always followed the rules she had set.
At first, she was a little restrained. But later, when she realized that no one seemed to care about this, she gradually relaxed.
In Fantasy Divine Palace, countless heavenly doctors were polite and attentive to her. As long as it was related to the medicinal mountain, she would decide.
However, she didn’t expect that person to choose today to hold her accountable!
“Since tens of thousands of years ago, this medicinal mountain has been entered and exited casually. You took matters into your own hands and imposed all kinds of restrictions on people entering and exiting the medicinal mountain. You deserve to be punished! From today onward, all your rules will be overruled!”
This voice spread far and wide, clearly falling into everyone’s ears.
Shu Jing felt as if she had been slapped twice in public. Her face was burning with pain!
In front of so many people, he didn’t give her any face.
Everyone was still silent. When they heard this, they secretly exchanged glances. Did the Eighth Deity provoke that person? But it has always been like this all these years. Why did it suddenly happen today…
“In the future, anyone who wants to come to this medicinal mountain can come and go directly. Whatever medicinal herbs you want, you can take it casually and without restrictions. Eighth Deity, remember that you’re in charge of taking care of the medicinal mountain, but that doesn’t mean you’re in charge of the medicinal mountain itself!”
Shu Jing was trembling all over. Her originally delicate and cold face was now pale.
She clenched her fists and finally couldn’t help but take a step forward. “But nothing can be done without rules. I’m doing this for Fantasy Divine Palace—”
“You’re just a deity. You don’t have to worry about Fantasy Divine Palace.” The voice was faint. “The emperor said that if you don’t want to be the Eighth Deity, there are many people who can replace you.”
Shu Jing felt as if she had been hit in the head. Her legs went weak, and she almost kneeled on the ground.
No sentence was more lethal than this!
Everyone around was also shocked and gasped. Is this the emperor’s will?! It seems like this time, that person is serious?
This warning is definitely not a joke. If Shu Jing does anything wrong, she might have to cup her hands in obeisance!
It has been more than 10,000 years since she became the Eighth Deity. She could be considered to be very experienced. But even so, if that person wants to punish her, it will only take a word. How did Shu Jing… offend that person?
“…Yes, yes…” Shu Jing didn’t dare to say anything else. She clenched her fists tightly in her sleeves, and her carefully trimmed nails almost dug into her palms, causing her pain.
The figure gradually disappeared, and the void quickly returned to its previous calm. However, everyone inside and outside the medicinal mountain was shocked!
After a short silence, someone turned to leave.
With one person taking the lead, the others quickly followed. After a while, the lively crowd actually dispersed silently.
Chu Liuyue looked around thoughtfully. These people clearly know of the existence of that ’emperor’ and are extremely afraid and respectful. As a result, after the person left just now, the surrounding people actually didn’t say anything and left in tacit understanding. They didn’t even dare to talk about that person.
I don’t know what kind of person he is… Could it be the master of Fantasy Divine Hall? But it doesn’t seem like it…
Chu Liuyue couldn’t figure it out no matter how she thought about it, but she knew that this wasn’t a good time to ask about this. She could only wait and slowly understand it later.
“Lord Deity.” She raised her voice slightly and shouted at Shu Jing. “Can you return my Settling Yuan Pill to me?”
As long as they weren’t blind, they could tell that she had won this round.
Since the biggest problem had been resolved, Shu Jing’s opinion wasn’t important. Besides, even Shu Jing couldn’t protect herself now.
Shu Jing came back to her senses and slowly turned around to look at Chu Liuyue. She took a deep breath and threw the jade box over with a flick of her wrist.
Xiao Ba slowly flew over, looked around, and stretched. “Sigh, the scenery inside this medicinal mountain is indeed different. Even the air is sweeter than outside. I thought I wouldn’t have a chance to come again in the future. How would I know that the world is ever-changing?”
Shu Jing’s face faintly turned green.
Xiao Ba crossed her arms and tapped her fair chin gently with her fingers. She said slowly, “Lord Deity, I guessed that Master would win. Are you willing to believe me now?”
