As Xue Chengxuan spoke, he waved his hand. A bright light completely enveloped the patient closest to him. After that, he raised his hand, and a silver light floated around him.
Meng Qi walked toward Xie Chengxuan, staring at the silver light carefully. It turned out to be a thin silver needle.
Xue Chengxuan snapped his fingers, and the silver light quickly flew into the wrist of the man in front of him. A blue jade slip flew out of his storage space, floating in front of the man’s forehead.
Meng Qi stood beside him. Without blinking her eyes, she carefully watched Xue Chengxuan did every step orderly. This was probably how a great healer work: calm, profound, and pleasing to the eye.
Xue Chengxuan frowned. The silver light drilled out of the injured man’s other wrist and disappeared. Meng Qi knew that the needle was called back by Xue Chengxuan. Many medical cultivators chose silver needles and medicinal cauldron as their natal magic weapon. Xue Chengxuan was born in a prominent medical sect. For him to use silver needles as a magic weapon was normal.
Meng Qi has just stepped into the Foundation Establishment stage. Once she reached the fifth realm of Foundation Establishment, she would have to begin refining her own natal magic weapon. In her previous life, she used a three-legged medicinal cauldron. In this life…silver needles like Xue Chengxuan used were probably also good.
“Fellow Daoist Meng.” Xue Chengxuan’s expression was grave. He sent the blue jade slip to Meng Qi, who took it into her hand.
The jade slip glowed, and all the information about the patient’s physical condition rushed into her mind. The spiritual aura inside his body was completely dried up, leaving his spiritual sea as barren and dry land. After being eroded by the immortal devouring vine for many days, the man’s vitality and strength have been consumed. The originally strong body of a cultivator was now almost hollowed out. Not to mention….
“Huh?” Meng Qi’s eyes widened, “Devil aura?!”
Xue Chengxuan turned his head and quickly shouted to Li Anhe, who was in charge of this place: “Hurry up! Send people to intercept those two just now!”
The words ‘devil aura’ instantly changed Li Anhe’s expression. “It’s bad!” He suddenly raised his voice, “The cultivators currently recovering in the snow cave back in the mountain are also…” Li Anhe turned pale and was about to stride out of the door.
The bloodstains on the corners of Qin Xiumo’s lips have turned dark brown, making his face even paler: “Below Spirit Severing, I’m afraid won’t be able to stop him.”
“Spirit Severing?!” Li Anhe trembled. “Master and elder are now unavailable. There is no other person…” Xuanyun Villa only had two cultivators who barely just stepped into the realm of Spirit Severing stage, but both of them were now busy with a more important issue.
“Then don’t send anyone. They’ll just die in vain.” Qin Xiumo wiped off the blood on his lips and said in a hoarse voice.
“But…” Li Anhe still wanted to argue.
Xue Chengxuan shook his head: “I was careless just now. This devil aura is so weak that it can’t be detected without careful examination. That black-robed cultivator seems to be injured, perhaps by a devil cultivator, and the demon aura remains in his body. ”
Based on his examination, the demon aura seemed to be completely harmless. Moreover, it was only one strand of it, which was extremely weak and would dissipate naturally in one or two days, even if left alone.
“Fellow Daoist Meng.” Xue Chengxuan turned at Meng Qi, who was still deep in contemplation: “What is your opinion?”
Meng Qi shook her head. “For the time being, it is harmless.” She was thinking about another thing. After Lan Zhuxuan and the others were treated by Lu Qingran, Meng Qi also found a trace of devil aura inside their bodies. It was equally weak and didn’t seem to be harmful.
So, did Lu Qingran already have contact with the black-robed man at that time?
The Qingfeng Valley’s disciples injured by the immortal devouring vine didn’t get proper treatment initially. Somebody simply suppressed the vine inside their bodies by force, resulting in a more severe backlash afterward.
The immortal devouring vine that harmed the people in Huajiang Manor was similar to the ones that attacked Qingfeng Valley and Fentian Palace disciples before. This time, however, the black-robed man really cured these people, using a method that was more powerful than Meng Qi: he directly killed the parasitic vine inside the body.
In other words, this strand of devil aura should have left behind when the man killed the immortal devouring vine.
So…who is he?
“Do you think there is a problem?” Qin Xiumo walked over and asked in a low voice.
Meng Qi pondered for a while: “I guess he directly killed the vine inside their bodies. This devil aura should be left at that time. He is very strong.”
“Yes.” Xue Chengxuan nodded in agreement. “Having the ability to accurately control his aura and kill only the parasitic vine without hurting other parts of the body, he must be very strong.”
“It’s no wonder that he can injure Qin Xiumo so easily just now. Indeed very powerful.” Su Junmo also came over. “Meng Qiqi, your senior sister is with him now. Perhaps…” He frowned in worry: “Is she being threatened?”
Qin Xiumo glanced at Su Junmo in annoyance. This guy really liked to remind Meng Qi again and again that he had a crush on that woman.
“Should we save your senior sister?” Su Junmo asked. There was a genuine worry in his voice: “When Lu Qingran left, she looked back at us. Was she asking for help?”
“Fellow Daoist Meng.” Xue Chengxuan also intervened: “If you want to save your senior sister, I can accompany you.”
“No.” Meng Qi shook her head. Lu Qingran never needed anyone to worry about her. No matter how strong, powerful, and cruel a man was, he would soon become soft-hearted and infatuated for Lu Qingran. Meng Qi had seen a bloodthirsty, cold-blooded, and cruel devil cultivator that was more powerful than that black-robed man. In the end, even he couldn’t help but to fall under Lu Qingran’s charm, obeying all her wish, and loved her unconditionally.
“But, Meng Qiqi…” Su Junmo still wanted to persuade.
Meng Qi glanced at him: “If you want to go, go by yourself.”
Su Junmo: “…”
“Yes, ah. You should go by yourself.” Chu Tianfeng added.
Su Junmo: “…” He was speechless.
Qin Xiumo snorted coldly and said indifferently: “If a hero who saves the beauty brings too many people, the effect will greatly be reduced.”
Su Junmo: “…”
Xue Chengxuan saw that the situation has turned awkward and said quickly: “Except for that trace of devil aura, these people don’t have other problems. Fellow Daoist Meng, I will now go to the snow cave in Xuanyun Villa to check the other wounded cultivators. What about you?”
“I’m not going.” Meng Qi replied. “I have something to do and will stay in the city.”
“Alright.” Xue Chengxuan did not insist, “Then we will meet here tomorrow morning and return to Fentian City together.” He cupped his hands to Meng Qi and her group, reassured the three injured cultivators, then walked out of the room with Li Anhe.
