Mo Zhao decided to consume the third-grade pill first. After waiting for a while, he started to feel the effects of the pill and proceeded to swallow the grade five pill. After an hour, the pills effect were finally working, and he could feel a change in his body. To be specific, a tense feeling was slowly building up in the lower part of his body.
He was overjoyed, and he thought about Gu Xijiu who he had not seen for a day. He looked at the monitor, and suddenly he narrowed his eyes! Long Fan was now in Gu Xijiu's room!
He was persuading Gu Xijiu to take a pill. The pill was light blue, but it was not the Sweet Heart Pill that she needed to eat every three days. This light blue pill was something that Mo Zhao had never seen before.
The usual Sweet Heart pill had to be melted in water for Gu Xijiu to drink. Meanwhile, the medicine that was used to make Gu Xijiu lose her memory only needed to be consumed once. She did not need to take it a second time.
So what was this light blue pill? What was Long Fan's intention?
Mo Zhao was unhappy and continued to observe the monitor quietly.
As Long Fan smelled very pungent to Gu Xijiu, she stayed very far away from him and resisted to take the pill,
"I don't want to eat it! This pill stinks! I am not sick, so why do I need to take this medicine?"
Long Fan tried to coax her. "You can't remember anything, right? Perhaps you can recall something after you have taken this pill."
Gu Xijiu paused for a moment and looked at him. "You told me that I am a clone and do not have any memory."
Long Fan was slightly stunned. "Actually, you do have some memories. Try eating this pill first. You will understand once it has taken effect…"
Gu Xijiu was very eager to regain her memory, but she was doubtful about Long Fan. "Is this medicine good? Why doesn't Brother Zhao allow me to eat it?"
Long Fan did not give up. "It was Brother Zhao that sent me to give you this medicine. Eat it. You will understand its magical effect after you have eaten it. I consider myself as your father, and so I will not hurt you."
Gu Xijiu seemed to be convinced, but she still furrowed her eyebrows. "But… But why didn't Brother Zhao personally bring it to me?"
"He is busy… Whether it's him or me that brought you this pill, the effect would still be the same." Long Fan stepped forward. He was somewhat impatient and was ready to force her to consume the pill. However, before he could make his move, a cool voice spoke at the entrance, "What was I so busy about?"
Mo Zhao had appeared in the room. He waved his sleeves and swept away the pill from Long Fan's hand.
Long Fan's facial expression changed slightly. Gu Xijiu cheered for joy when she saw Mo Zhao and took the opportunity to complain. "Brother Zhao, he was about to force me to eat this smelly pill and said that it was you who had instructed him to do it! The rice that they had sent just now smelled the same too! He must have mixed this pill into my rice. I almost vomited after smelling the stinky smell!"
Mo Zhao looked at the pill. There was light blue glow surrounding the pill. It was indeed a grade five pill, and it had an awful smell.
He patted Gu Xijiu's small hand. "Elder Long was joking with you. He must be worried that you would eat the medicine that was given by other people, so he came and tested you."
"I will not eat any medicine given by other people!" Gu Xijiu proudly raised her little face.
"Yes, Xijiu is the smartest girl. Well, you must be tired already. Go and rest first so that you can be a beautiful bride tomorrow."
"Okay." Gu Xijiu replied obediently and walked into her bedroom. She was still very obedient to him.
Mo Zhao was playing with the pill in his hand as he stared at Long Fan. "Come with me."
Long Fan was a little bit hesitant, but he followed him.
He quickly explained the function of the blue pill to Mo Zhao.
