Translator: YHHH Editor: Book_Hoarder
Another day had passed. In a forest, the empress carried Ren Baqian in one of her hands while she used the other hand to pat the kirin, "Wait in the vicinity, I'll be back one day later."
The kirin shook its head, gamboled all the way and jumped over a mountain stream. Then, it made a turn and disappeared thereafter.
Even though Ren Baqian was on the kirin's back for the past two days, he didn't even spend any time testing out the kirn.
He was barely holding onto his life, what was the use in looking into this kirin?
The next second, two silhouettes appeared in the apartment on Earth. The empress was carrying Ren Baqian with one hand. At this moment, Ren Baqian could barely speak. If the empress relinquished her grip, he wouldn't even be able to stand on his feet.
"Where do we go to find the remedy for the poison?" The empress asked.
"Your Majesty, help me to get my phone," Ren Baqian answered feebly.
After he woke up, he only drank some blood. The blood came from a small beast that the empress caught on the road, and she poured it directly into his mouth.
Ren Baqian was placed on the sofa by the empress. He was extremely moved just by looking at the back view of the empress going upstairs.
Such a woman actually went to such an extent for him. What else was there to say?
One had to know that she was the ruler of a nation. She hadn't had any sleep or any rest for the past two consecutive days on the road just to find the antidote for himself. For this reason, she even took the risk to enter the boundaries of Great Xia.
Ren Baqian felt if he could survive this phase, even if he had to make enemies with the entire world, he was most willing to do so.
After a while, the empress brought Ren Baqian's phone to him. Under the guidance of Ren Baqian, she dialed Chen Qing's number. At this moment, he could only rely on him.
"It seems like I haven't met you for a long time. You have been very elusive for the past half a year," after the call got through, Chen Qing said as he giggled.
"Come to my house. It's a matter of life and death," Ren Baqian replied weakly.
"Is it because of that woman last time?" Chen Qing's first reaction was to relate him getting into trouble with that woman.
"I have been poisoned, come quickly," Ren Baqian said as he kept his eye on the empress. However, he didn't feel any coldness from her that he expected.
"Why don't you go to the hospital? Shall I call the ambulance for you? I will arrange a hospital for you." Chen Qing who was on the other line asked while he went out hastily.
"For the time being, I won't die from the poison. I'm afraid that the hospitals have never encountered such a poison before." Ren Baqian answered. Of course, no one had seen this type of poison before. He was the first person on Earth to encounter such a poison, and it was such a pity that it was in his body.
"Wait for me, I'll be there soon." Chen Qing hung up the call, trotted to the garage once he got out of the lift, and hastily drove over to Ren Baqian's place.
"Zixiao, change into a fresh set of clothes." Ren Baqian turned his head slightly to look at the empress.
The way he called Zixiao was very natural.
"Which woman was it?" The empress suddenly asked.
Ren Baqian nearly vomited blood. At this moment, this person actually still remembered what Chen Qing said?
"My friend saw you from afar the previous time you came to Earth and he felt that your appearance and presence wasn't like any ordinary person. See, it's something that even a blind can make out. However, he felt that your social status is too high and if we are together, problems will arise easily. In our world, we pay particular attention to couples being well-matched in term of social status" Ren Baqian explained slowly and thought to himself, "Chen Qing, in any case, I saved your life this time."
After the empress heard what Ren Baqian said, she remained silent and directly carried the bag into the house to change.
The things which had disappeared the previous time they teleported, hadn't disappeared during the process of teleportation. Rather they were left behind in Ren Baqian's apartment and the housekeeper had tidied up and put them aside.
Chen Qing took almost an hour to reach Ren Baqian's apartment and the person who opened the door for him, was the woman dressed in red which he had seen previously. He was a little surprised as he had not expected her to be here.
In addition, the previous time he saw her was from a distance away. This time round, the distance between them was much nearer and that kind of ice-cold and imposing feeling was more evident.
He felt immense pressure just by standing over there.
Chen Qing couldn't help but to admire Ren Baqian as he actually got entangled with such a woman. Sure enough, she wasn't someone ordinary. He wasn't mistaken at that time.
After the empress gave way, he entered the apartment and saw Ren Baqian who was lying on the sofa. He stepped forward and saw his pale complexion, "What happened to you?"
"I have been poisoned and impossible for me to move at all. It's a type of poison which does not exist anymore. There's thirteen more days before it takes effect, and thereafter, it is similar to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). I'm afraid that if we go to an ordinary hospital, it will delay the time."
Chen Qing grimaced and then said, "Where did you come across such a bizarre thing?"
Before Ren Baqian could answer, Chen Qing had already taken out his phone and made two calls. Soon after, he said to Ren Baqian, "We have all kinds of equipment in our own laboratory.
First, let's find out the specific situation and then let's find a few medical experts to find ways out for you."
"Okay." Ren Baqian nodded.
Chen Qing helped Ren Baqian up and in the end, due to Ren Baqian's weight gain which caught him off guard, he had no choice but to look at the woman dressed in red. "I'll have to trouble you to help."
The empress merely reached out and Ren Baqian was already in her hand. She was so swift that Chen Qing didn't see clearly and she was already carrying Ren Baqian with just one hand.
This made him even more startled. Who exactly was this woman?
Even those who practiced martial arts weren't able to attain that sort of speed. In addition,
Chen Qing had to expend quite a great deal of effort in taking Ren Baqian by his arm. But, Ren Baqian was like a stalk of rice straw in her hands.
Chen Qing was driving in the front while Ren Baqian and the empress sat in the backseat.
Throughout the whole journey, Chen Qing looked into the rearview mirror from time to time, checking on the both of them. As long as his gaze stayed on the empress for more than a second, the empress would immediately give him an icy-cold stare. This made him feel incessantly guilty.
It has been a long time since he felt like that, as if he couldn't even raise his head in front of someone.
This made him even more curious about this woman's identity.
But, Ren Baqian didn't have the slightest bit of intention to introduce her.
He parked his car at the carpark of a building. After he got off the car, he discovered that the woman was still watching him from the car. This made him astonished as he didn't know what the other party wanted to do.
When he went forward to pull open the door, only then did that woman get off the car while holding onto Ren Baqian in one hand.
"She's waiting for me to open the door?" In a split second, Chen Qing felt that he was like a parking attendant and his heart was in a mess.
In reality, Ren Baqian was the one who politely opened the door for her every time. As such, up till now, the empress still didn't know how to open a car door, that's all.
This small understanding created an endless mess in Chen Qing's heart.
The three of them entered the lift and Chen Qing pressed the button for eleventh floor. After they got out of the lift, they went into a room which was at the side. There were a few security guards inside and after inspecting Chen Qing's identity, they entered another room which had another lift. This time, there were only two buttons, eleventh floor and twenty-third floor.
When they got out of the lift again, it was a room similar to the one on the eleventh floor. There were also a few security guards standing outside.
From this, they could see that the security of the laboratory was very tight.
Even though it had only recently been established and located at a commercial building in the city center, but, Chen Qing's father spent a lot of effort on this laboratory.
After all, the influence of the black mud cream was too huge.
Just past this room was a glass partitioned room. In there, were many people wearing white coats who were busy with their research. Just a rough glance and there were at least more than ten people working in this laboratory.
"Wait for a moment, I'll look for the supervisor," Chen Qing said to Ren Baqian, and he hastily went inside. The next moment, he brought a woman out with him. Ren Baqian saw her the previous time at Papa Chen's office. Her name was Xu Shan.
"First, go and get your blood drawn. Then, we'll examine what kind of poison is it," Xu Shan said as she walked along. Chen Qing did mention some details beforehand, otherwise, she would have directly suggested for Ren Baqian to head to the hospital.
After which, Xu Shan glanced at the empress's face and found it breathtaking.
Even though Xu Shan was a woman herself, she couldn't help but to feel a little jealous upon seeing such a woman.
Ren Baqian got his blood drawn followed by puncturing his lumbar vertebra to extract some body fluid. After a series of test was conducted, Xu Shan was frowning while reading the report in one of the offices an hour later.
"According to what you said, I thought that it might be aluminium toxicity. But, it's completely not the case. This kind of poison isn't the commonly seen poison which had to do with protein, organic substances, mycotoxin, or even bacteria. Rather, it's a very strange type of poison.
This kind of poison is alive. It's very odd."
As Xu Shan spoke, she projected a few pictures on the screen.
Ren Baqian raised his head strenuously only to see a picture with many tiny dots on it. After Xu Shan enlarged a picture, they were able to see that there were many bigger dots on the top. Also, there was something that was similar to tiny bugs on it.
"This isn't bacteria. From its composition, this is a type of bug and it's extremely tiny. It is the size of about five red blood cells combined. But, this size is already their whole entity.
They will devour the white blood cells in your body. After which, they will ovulate and incubate even more bugs within a short period of time. Then, they will break through your blood vessels and attack your neurons," Xu Shan explained seriously.
"This is something that has never appeared before. It's a new discovery and will be of great significance to current study of biology." Xu Shan's eyes glimmered.
"How do we deal with these bugs?" At present, what Ren Baqian wanted to know was how to get rid of these damned things.
Since they knew that it was caused by a type of bug, there should be a way out, right?
