Huo Yao cast an ambiguous smile towards Shangguan Yun upon hearing this.
Shangguan Yun could tell she was mocking him for bluffing an old man.
Shangguan Yun did not know what to say.
He had already explained many times to the old man that he did not know medicine.
Sadly, the old man did not believe him at all. What else could he do, right?
Wang failed to notice Shangguan Yun's desolate expression. He simply asked Huo Yao. "Oh yes. Huo Yao, what drugs did those people use on you anyway? Why did you pass out for so long? When I took your pulse previously, everything looked completely normal."
Wang kept thinking about this and even called his disciple in the morning asking him to check the medical texts at the apothecary association for similar conditions. However, he was unable to find any such medical cases.
"It's a special drug that can make me lose my senses. The moment I came into contact with it, I lost consciousness." When Huo Yao spoke, there was not the slightest warmth in her eyes.
Shangguan Hou was always careful about using drugs. From the moment she entered the building to save her senior brothers, she could smell the faint scent of medicine in the air. However, it was just the first part of the drug cocktail intended for her and people did not get affected by it.
It was just a ruse to make her lower her guard and made her think she was immune to those drugs.
The real deal was the medicinal powder he scattered on her later when she was distracted.
When both the drugs were absorbed by her system, it would achieve what Shangguan Hou wanted.
A cold smile swept through Huo Yao's face. Shangguan Hou's drugs might be good, but her body had already digested them just the same.
"Was the drug specifically targeted towards you?" The thought almost instantly came to Wang's mind looking at Huo Yao.
After all, Huo Yao was connected to the Shangguan clan and a lot of people wanted to find them.
Huo Yao gathered her thoughts and a calm look emerged on her face. "Perhaps."
A solemn look emerged on Wang's face. "Who would want to do this to you?"
Even though Min Yu was not looking at him, he was listening carefully waiting for Huo Yao's answer.
Huo Yao simply smiled and shrugged nonchalantly. "Probably someone who has nothing better to do."
Wang had a feeling Huo Yao must know the truth, but she simply did not want to get him involved. He could not help parting his lips.
Just as he was about to speak, Huo Yao interrupted him. "Oh yes. Since you're here, let me take your pulse again."
She proceeded to change the subject.
Wang simply sighed without continuing with the subject. He reached his hand out. "I have been taking medicine following your prescription. I have to say my health has been doing well in the past six months."
Huo Yao placed her hand on Wang's pulse. After half a minute, she glanced at Shangguan Yun and pulled her hand back. "I will give you some acupuncture later."
Wang nodded without a second thought.
Shangguan Yun felt puzzled when Huo Yao suddenly shot him a warning look.
What did he do wrong this time?
After Huo Yao was done giving Wang acupuncture, Shangguan Yun quietly pulled her to the side. "Why did you just…"
Huo Yao reached her hand out and pulled his ear. "Didn't you spend years learning medicine? Where did your knowledge go?"
"That hurts." Shangguan Yun's face contorted in pain as he hurriedly wrested himself free of Huo Yao's hand. He covered his ears and jumped away. "What are you doing? True gentlemen do not resort to violence."
Huo Yao sneered expressionlessly. "I'm no gentleman."
"What did I do to offend you anyway?" Shangguan Yun felt terribly startled. "Let's not forget you have me to thank for recovering so quickly."
