While Rong Chu and Gu Xixi were busy catching poisonous worms in the abandoned palace, Gu Xijiu had teleported back to her bedroom.
By then, it was already midnight. As usual, no one had realized that Gu Xijiu had been out. The maids who guarded her bedroom could be heard speaking very softly as they assumed that she was sleeping soundly.
The Firmament Stone admired her, "My master, how did you know that the Tianwen saint would have interest in the abandoned palace?"
Its owner was simply amazing!
Not only had she teleported back to her bedroom before being noticed, she even removed all traces of her presence in the area. The timing was simply too accurate.
Gu Xijiu closed her eyes and meditated. She did not answer its question. As a former assassin, she would have died many times if she did not have good instincts.
Instead of responding to its question, she asked the bracelet, "Is 'Long' the surname of the Overload of Tianwen?"
The Firmament Stone answered confidently, "Yes."
"What is his full name?"
"Long Siye" Gu Xijiu subconsciously repeated his name and asked another question, "In this world, are there any doctors specialized in surgical skills?"
"Only the disciples of the Tianwen clan will know about this. I am aware that two pupils are extremely competent in this skill; however, I heard that their skills are not as good as their master's. Long Siye is the undisputed champion of this skill, but he seldom comes out from his territory, and ordinary people are not able to invite him. Rong Jialuo had invited him for his hidden disease, but his invitation was rejected. They sent the Tianwen saint instead. Presently, this Tianwen saint seems to have a better relationship with the Fourth Prince"
Gu Xijiu appeared to be more interested in Long Siye and asked, "How old is Long Siye?"
"108 years old." The Firmament Stone answered very accurately.
"How long have his disciples been famous for surgical skills?"
"I suspect it might be about 50 years. I heard that 50 years ago, a disciple helped a king remove a malignant tumor in his body. Needless to say, he became famous after that."
Gu Xijiu sighed lightly. It seemed like this skill had been practiced here for so long. This meant that the Overlord of the Tianwen clan should not be Long Xi. If he came across to this world at the same time as her, it should have happened only a few days ago, yet this skill had already been practiced for so many years
She raised her hand and rubbed her eyebrows again. She chuckled at herself for being so ridiculous. She had suspected that Overlord Long was Long Xi just because they had the same surname In this world, there were so many people with the surname 'Long'. Not to mention that skills in surgery had been practiced for a long time now. For example, Hua Tuo from the Three Kingdoms already knew how to use anesthetics and often performed surgery to cure his patients
Thus, it was not surprising to learn that there were at least a few proficient people in this area.
Gu Xijiu stopped questioning and started to think about a way to cure her body which was the most important thing to do now. This petite body was too weak; she was thin and small with dry skin. Even when she disguised herself as an adult, her features were still pronounced.
"Is it possible to move on from my lousy physique?" Gu Xijiu pondered again.
"It is not impossible, but it is challenging" The Firmament Stone Bracelet replied.
This gave Gu Xijiu a glimmer of hope as she was not afraid of challenges.
"What do I need to do?" She asked.
"First, you need to get some precious herbs to produce the pill that can wash off your essence" The Firmament Stone Bracelet explained the entire process to her thoroughly.
