Aren’t You Going To Blame Me? (2)

“Like this? Like what?” Gu Xijiu looked at herself, only to realize that she was not appropriately dressed. Her clothes were still unbuttoned, and she was not even wearing pants.
Her cheeks started to blush crimson. Hastily, she tidied up her clothes and felt so embarrassed. She should have foreseen the misbehavior coming when she got drunk. The whole bed would usually be a mess. Very often, she would kick the sheets away because it would be too warm, which was the same thing that she would do to her clothes. Gu Xijiu normally drank alone, so it was not a problem until now.
Gu Xijiu knew that she was good at holding her liquor. She thought that it would be easy to stay in control but did not realize that the aftereffect of the alcohol was much stronger than she had expected. Had the alcohol become stronger, or had her body become weaker? Anyway, there was no time to sort out that problem now. She needed to help Di Fuyi first, so she quickly made herself appropriate.
Meanwhile, Di Fuyi took the time to start meditating. He sat with his legs crossed, completely at peace. After a while, he opened his eyes, only to reveal his confusion on the matter. He had a unique physique that would usually shield him from the harm of most poisons.
Even when he was unfortunately poisoned, a simple session of meditation was already enough for him to extract all the toxins from his body. This time, the meditation did not help him at all. He could tell that the toxins still lingered in his system. His throat started to itch again, which was a sign that the symptoms were returning.
The poison was truly one of a kind. Gu Xijiu also noticed the strength of it and realized that she could help him recover. “Let me help,” she offered.
As an experienced doctor, she was confident that there was nothing she could not solve. She suspected that the love philter should only be a small matter.
“What is your plan?” Di Fuyi stared at her with honest bafflement as he asked. The fiery look in his eyes was hard to ignore.
Gu Xijiu gave him a few gentle taps on the shoulder and said, “Don’t worry. I have my own ways.” She then dived straight into the treatment.
Di Fuyi could feel his body temperature rising rapidly. His eyes were, once again, tinged with blood. He tried very hard to stay calm, though the fierce desire had long clouded his senses.
Gu Xijiu had seen people being poisoned by the love philter. They became madmen who targeted any woman in sight. There was nothing that could stop them.
Apparently, Di Fuyi was in a fight with himself, but he managed to keep calm so far. The young man’s patience was impressive, and Gu Xijiu liked that about him.
She continued to try a few ways to cure the poison, but all attempts were in vain. Troubled, she frowned at him. It was very rare for her to find a poison that she could not cure.Could it be a new type of poison?
Although it was her first encounter with the poison, she felt like she had actually seen it somewhere as she found one of the materials used in the making of the poison rather familiar. Unfortunately, she was now certain that nothing in her storage bag could be the cure. Therefore, the only way to help Di Fuyi was to refine the cure on the spot.
Fortunately, she had brought enough items with her. As soon as she gathered all the ingredients she needed, she immediately began the alchemy.
As she worked, the love philter had started to spread across Di Fuyi’s body. Sweat could be seen rolling down all around his body, yet, they soon evaporated because of his dry, hot skin.
Fortunately for him, it did not take long for Gu Xijiu to produce a new cure. “Here, try this,” she offered.
Di Fuyi swallowed the pill as a whole without any delay.
Gu Xijiu continued to observe him and soon realized that the redness on his cheeks started to fade. In fact, his complexion was slowly returning to normal. She then took a reading on his wrist and noticed that his thumping heart was already slowing down. Relieved, the woman was once again convinced that there was nothing she could not solve.
“Jiu, if the toxins could not be cured, what would you have done?” Di Fuyi suddenly asked.
“Are you doubting my abilities? Don’t worry; there is no poison that I cannot cure,” Gu Xijiu reassured.
