He was relieved as he had managed to catch Li Mengxia. He would be able to interrogate her freely now that she was in his grasp. Would she also forget everything about Di Fuyi like the four messengers?
“Li Mengxia, let me ask you, you…” Just as he was about to ask the most important question, Li Mengxia stared at the desserts on the table. “I am so hungry!”
She staggered forward and grabbed a plate of pastries and directly stuffed them into her mouth.
The fake Celestial Master Zuo watched her silently.
He waved his sleeve and launched a ray of white light. Suddenly, the plate that Li Mengxia was holding disappeared, and the pastry along with it.
The fake Celestial Master Zuo looked dangerous. “You are a traitor, so you do not deserve to eat my food. I am asking you a question so answer me…”
Before he could finish his sentence, Li Mengxia suddenly fell and shook for a while before she fainted.
The fake Celestial Master Zuo was speechless.
Master Yang quickly came over to check Li Mengxia’s pulse. He reported. “She fainted because she was too hungry.” When he saw the angry expression of the fake Celestial Master Zuo, he quickly explained, “Though this lady is very fierce, she has a weakness, which is that she cannot be starved. She will faint if she goes too long without food. At first, she had some snacks with her. However, during the journey back here I was worried that she would commit suicide, and so I confiscated everything from her. She had not eaten properly for several days…”
The fake Celestial Master Zuo gripped the chair and ordered, “Ask Mu Feng to come over immediately.”
After a few minutes, Mu Feng walked in and bowed to the fake Celestial Master Zuo. “My master.”
The fake Celestial Master Zuo waved his hand and pointed Li Mengxia. “Go and see what is wrong with her.”
Mu Feng agreed and walked to her side to check her pulse. After a moment he frowned and stood up reported. “Master, she has a hidden disease. She will faint if she is starved…” It is the same with Master Yang.
Finally, the fake Celestial Master Zuo felt rest assured. “How can we quickly wake her up?”
Mu Feng looked down. “If she was an average person, she could easily be awakened by giving her a bowl of sugar water. However, she is different. She could only be awakened by night time once she fainted.”
The trial would be unable to continue as Li Mengxia had fainted. The fake Celestial Master Zuo ordered his servants to carry Li Mengxia away, and she was locked in a secret prison.
It was quite late now. Usually, the fake Celestial Master Zuo did not allow people to stay over. Therefore, after he praised Master Yang and the other members who were present, he requested them to head home and ordered Mu Feng to send them out.
After they had left the room, the fake Celestial Master Zuo seemed to have thought about something. He secretly followed behind them.
His was pretty skilled, and so the other members that were in front of him were unaware that they were being followed.
The moon was shining brightly outside. Mu Feng quietly led the group at the front while Master Yang and the rest followed behind him.
Master Yang seemed like she wanted to get close to Mu Feng, so he started a conversation. “Mr. Mu Feng, I have admired you for a very long time, but I never had the opportunity to meet you personally. Finally, I can meet you in person today. You look perfect and extraordinary!”
Mu Feng answered without looking back, “Thank you.”
“Mr. Mu Feng, where are the other three messengers?”
Mu Feng sounded cold. “Yang Yifei, you are asking an unnecessary question!”
Master Yang coughed and scratched his head. He apologized to Mu Feng and started praising him. Mu Feng ignored him. He never looked up to Master Yang in the first place.
Master Yang barely smiled. Suddenly, he seemed to recall something. “I never realized that Mr. Mu Feng was so skilled in the art of medicine. I have not been feeling well recently. Can you help to check on me?”
