Treating The Wounds (3)

The leader of the guards stood in its way to stop it from getting another step closer to the hall. Meanwhile, he sent his men to tell Long Siye of the incident. Long Siye went to check the situation as soon as he heard about it. Upon seeing the carriage, he was a little confused, for he could not recall whose carriage it was.
The magical horse seemed to be relieved to see him. Before he could ask, the horse started asking him for a favor. “General Long, please send your men away.”
Long Siye was astonished. His men, however, refused to back down. “General, I am concerned that the intruder bears no good intention.”
Long Siye dismissed his concern swiftly. “There is nothing to be worried about. I have a grasp of the situation. You may leave now. Spread no word about what happened tonight. If anything goes out, you are responsible for it.”
The leader of the guards was puzzled, but he could never go against the general’s command. He took the order and left with the rest of his men.
Long Siye turned his attention to the carriage and asked gently, “Xijiu, is that you?”
The ‘carriage’ answered, “Overlord Long, you are a smart man!”
Then, Long Siye watched as the carriage changed its camouflage and turned into a mussel of pale-pink color. The mussel, with the look of an adorable child, fixed its hopeful eyes on Long Siye, as though a lost child who had just found a policeman. “Overlord Long, please help my master. She needs you!”
It then opened its shells, exposing Gu Xijiu.
There she lay, looking as pale as a white paper. Her breathing was weak, and one could easily tell the severity of her injuries. She forced a smile when she saw Long Siye. “Long… Instructor Long… Save… Save me.”
Long Siye started to tremble in immense anxiety.
After all stresses and strains, he finally put Gu Xijiu in his private room.
Long Siye had checked her pulse and noticed that many of her organs were not functioning well. Her injuries could not simply be undone.
If the same injuries happened to a normal celestial being, he or she would be long gone. Gu Xijiu’s strength and advanced spiritual power had kept her alive until now. Moreover, she had also taken some pills to help her survive, which was why she was still conscious after three days without any help. Her face, however, was ashen.
After examining the severity of her injuries, Long Siye was even more worried. The Golden Splitting Spell caused the injuries that she suffered from. It was a potent spell that could cause maximum harm to its target.
The Golden Splitting Spell was an exclusive technique from Spiritual Master Shanjing. Once hit, the spell would cause the victim’s organs to become liquefied and melt away into a pool of blood. It was strong enough to cause severe injuries even to Gu Xijiu, who had always been strong and tough.
Spiritual Master Shanjing was really a hermit, who had always been hiding away in solitude. It came as a surprise to Long Siye that he was also one of the members of the siege.
The spell required an exclusive cure, which could only be made by Spiritual Master Shanjing. Otherwise, the affected organs would never be able to recover. On the contrary, they would become even worse as time went by.
Gu Xijiu knew that her injuries were one of a kind. She saw Long Siye’s nervous expression, which basically confirmed her assumption. “Can my injuries be cured by the Triumphant Recovery Spell?”
The Triumphant Recovery Spell was a special recovery spell that could heal any internal or external injuries. Gu Xijiu was the one who taught Long Siye about the spell, so she knew that he could help her. The spell would require both of them to work together, which was why Gu Xijiu was in such a hurry to see Long Siye.
Long Siye seemed quite unsure about the idea. He began to speak, then hesitated. Gu Xijiu continued, “No worries; tell me how bad it is.”
Long Siye knew he could not hide the truth from her, so he told her about the severity of the Golden Splitting Spell. Gu Xijiu had not met many people from the Upper Bound, so she certainly did not expect that the spell would be so harmful when Spiritual Master Shanjing attacked her.
Even Long Siye was aggrieved at the violence.
