Not long later, Leng Hua followed Leng Shuang back to the courtyard. When he saw their Mistress pacing back and forth in the courtyard, he murmured slightly and the two people looked at each other before walking forwards.
“Mistress.” Leng Hua called out and looked at her asking: “Why did you call for me?”
“Come here.” When she saw him, she pulled him over to sit down and took out the elixir: “Eat this elixir and let me see what happens.”
There was no questioning, no doubt, anxiety or worry. As soon as she said the words, he didn’t care what the elixir was, and swallowed it not minding being a guinea pig.
Soon after Leng Hua had eaten the elixir, cold sweat formed on his forehead as he took a few breaths. His whole body tightened up and his hands were twisted together tightly, as if he were restraining something.
Although Leng Shuang who was watching was a little worried, she too hadn’t said anything as she knew that their Mistress wouldn’t hurt her younger brother.
In the end, he couldn’t restrain the tearing pain that coursed through his body. He bounced off the stool and rolled back and forth on the ground as he cried out in pain. Leng Shuang looked on distressed and was about to step forward but was stopped by Feng Jiu.
“No pain no gain.”
She looked at Leng Hua and observed his reaction. She watched as he cried out in pain on the ground, as his sweat drenched his robes. About an hour later, the pain subsided, but by then he had already fainted from the severe pain. At this time, a black liquid seeped out from his body accompanied by a foul smell.
“Take him back to his bedroom. Get someone to give him a wash and when he wakes up, bring him to see me.” Feng Jiu instructed.
Leng Shuang responded as she looked at her unconscious younger brother on the ground. She stepped forward to help her brother up, she didn’t even mind that the horrible stench on his body touching her. As she watched them leave, Feng Jiu touched her chin and looked at her messy appearance, then went back to her courtyard and got someone to draw a bath for her.
Two hours later, when she had emerged from her bath, she told the kitchen staff to cook some dishes for her to eat. She had nearly finished eating when she saw Leng Shuang accompanying Leng Hua who had changed, coming in.
“Mistress.” They said.
She glanced at him from top to bottom and said: “Tell me how you feel after taking the elixir.”
Leng Hua responded: “Earlier on, there was some heat in my abdomen, it started off warm, and spread through my body like fire and permeated every vein in my body. My meridians seemed to be torn apart by the flame-laden airflow and then re-melded back together. The pain was so intense I could barely breathe. I don’t know what happened after I fainted. My body felt really weird after I woke up. I felt like I was being washed in fresh water, it felt really comfortable.”
Feng Jiu took out the spirit plate that measured spirit roots from space and signaled: “Come, I will check for you.”
The brother and sister were dumbfounded when they heard this and stared at her blankly.
“Mistress, I don’t have spirit roots right? We’ve measured it in the past.” Leng Hua said to her. They had measured in the past and knew that it was impossible to cultivate, that’s why Mistress taught him Tai Chi to keep fit and protect himself.
“That was in the past, you’ve eaten my Five Elements Pill, the rebuilding of meridians has changed your body and you can now cultivate immortality. But I have to measure and find out what kind of spiritual root you have first.”
