My Sassy ‘Crown Princess' - Chapter 850
850. Star Herbs Monopolized (2)
Cheng Mobai wore a bitter face, “Today, I met some other people who also got poisoned like me.”
All those below the heavenly cla.s.s who had ever entered the tomb died, and only twenty five of those heavenly cla.s.s masters survived. Now, over ten of them gathered here.
All were sufferers of the soul-killing potion, thought from different sects, they had common language. It was just during their talk, someone had the poison attack, which nearly scared him to death.
Mo Fei frowned, “Is there anything wrong?”
“One of them got poison attack.” Cheng Mobai looked at Mo Fei eagerly.
“Did he survive?” Asked Mo Fei.
Cheng Mobai nodded, “Yeah, but living in huge pains.”
Mo Fei, “…”
Cheng Mobai grabbed Mo Fei’s hand, “Feifei, your shifu I am most afraid of pains.”
“Shifu! Only by experiencing the hardest hardships can one rise above the ordinary.” Mo Fei looked at Cheng Mobai.
Cheng Mobai smiled helplessly and said, “My disciple, your shifu I can’t take any hardships.”
Mo Fei, “…”
“Senior Cheng, you are afraid of pains, but it is useless to complain. This is the list of the star herbs we need.” Xiao Chen came out at this time.
Cheng Mobai looked at the list Xiao Chen handed over, “So many?”
Xiao Chen nodded while replying, “Yes! This is just what we need for initial research, and there will only be more.”
Cheng Mobai, “…”
Mo Fei looked at Cheng Mobai, “Shifu, in order not to endure any hardships, try your best.”
Cheng Mobai nodded and said, “Don’t worry, my disciple, master won’t let you be short the star herbs.”
Mo Fei nodded, “That’s great.”
Cheng Mobai took the star herbs sheet and walked around outside, then went back to his living room with disappointment.
“How is it?” w.a.n.g Weixing asked.
Cheng Mobai looked at w.a.n.g Weixing, making a helpless smile, “Nothing, my disciple asked me to look for some star herbs for him. As a result, I didn’t fail any.”
w.a.n.g Weixing smiled, showing a bitter smile, “Of course you can’t. Those star herbs are all monopolized by a few heavenly cla.s.s masters here.”
Cheng Mobai darkened his face, “Why?”
“To pool resources for working on the antidote for the Soul-killing Potion.” w.a.n.g Weixing sniffed.
Cheng Mobai rubbed his nose, “But they shouldn’t have left none!”
“It’s just a way of saying to the public, I think those old guys are just trying to control us.” w.a.n.g Weixing said.
Cheng Mobai frowned and said, “You mean…”
w.a.n.g Weixing smiled coldly and said, “If the antidote is developed, our lives will be in the hands of those people.” But if they couldn’t, then they could only wait to die. By doing so, if they couldn’t work out the antidote, then they also forbid others from studying it out.
Cheng Mobai bit his teeth, “What do we do now?”
w.a.n.g Weixing smiled, “Actually, the star herbs have all been collected by a few heavenly cla.s.s masters who have also been poisoned. So it wouldn’t be a difficult thing to let them spare some.”
After all, people are selfish. A few heavenly cla.s.s masters had been working on it for so long but still didn’t go anywhere. Others who had also been poisoned should have a problem with that now.
Xiao Chen looked at the list of potions, confused, “what are these? They don’t seem to be the herbs needed to detoxify the soul-killing potion?”
Mo Fei shook his head, “Not really.”
Xiao Chen looked at Mo Fei and said, “No?”
Mo Fei nodded, “No! Of all the possible prescriptions that might detoxify the soul-killing potion, the star herbs for them are all monopolized by those old as*holes. Thought it’s possible we could get some, it’s not necessary to have conflicts with them now for this. So, I plan to develop the painkilling potions now.”
“Painkilling potion?” Xiao Chen wondered.
Mo Fei nodded, “Yes! It would be easier to develop a painkilling potion anyhow, and the star herbs I need would be different.”
Xiao Chen nodded, “You are right!”
Mo Fei heaved a sigh and said, “My shifu is a person who is very afraid of pains. When other people suffer the poison attack, they may be able to get through replying on their will. But my shifu might directly pa.s.s away.”
Xiao Chen smiled helplessly, “Mo Fei, is it possible you way too look down upon senior Cheng? Anyway, senior Cheng is a heavenly cla.s.s master.”
Mo Fei shrugged his shoulders, helplessly shook his head while saying, “It’s not that I underestimate him, but you overestimate him.”
Xiao Chen, “…”
Then he smiled and said, “By the way, in herb continent, there is one place you have to go.”
Mo Fei looked at Xiao Chen and asked curiously, “Where?”
Xiao Chen shrugged his shoulders and said, “Stone Tablet Forest.”
Mo Fei frowned, “What kind of place is that?”
Xiao Chen lightly said, “In the Stone Tablet Forest there are 72 stone tablets, recording the pharmaceutical knowledge, it is said that as long as long could study it all thoroughly, one can step into the holy area.”
Mo Fei raised his eyebrows and said, “Is there that sort of thing?”
Xiao Chen nodded, “Yes! Pity that the top potion masters could only comprehend fifty of them.”
“Since there is such a good place, what we waiting for? Come on, let’s go take a look.” Mo Fei couldn’t wait already.
Xiao Chen nodded, “All right.”
