"Let's set off," Yun Luofeng shrugged her shoulders, "It's going to be late soon so I'll head to the Imperial Palace first to treat the Empress. After that, I have other things to do."

Jian Chengwen curiously looked at her. "What matters do you have? You can tell me and I'll dispatch men to help."

Yun Luofeng was pondered for a long time and replied, "I have to purchase some medicinal herbs."

"Medicinal herbs? There are plenty in the state treasury and I'll ask the Emperor to allow you to take whatever you need, to avoid having to purchase them in medicinal stores."

"Many thanks."

Yun Luofeng was not courteous towards Jian Chengwen and had no qualms accepting his good intentions.

Jian Chengwen lamented, "If Brother Yun Yang were to witness your achievements of today, he would definitely be proud of you. Let's go, we'll head to the palace first. Your Aunt Xue is still unconscious as of now and if she were to see you after waking, she'll definitely be excited."

Perhaps recalling the days he spent in Longxia Continent, Jian Chengwen's lips quirked up... Unfortunately, times had changed and his old friend was no longer there.

...

Deep within the palace courtyard, stood a high-raised pavilion.

There were an unknown number of woman's youth buried here and the number of beautiful women who suffered unhappy fates due to mutual deception.

At present within the Empress's resting palace, the dragon-robed man tiredly sat on the headboard as he held the lily-white hands of the woman lying on the bed, while his eyes were reluctant to even blink.

Perhaps not having slept for several days and nights, the man's eyes were bloodshot and he seemed exhausted.

Suddenly, an eunuch hastily came in and reported, "Your Majesty, Sir Xuan Tian and the General are waiting outside."

"Xuan Tian has returned?" The man's eyes brightened and he hastily stood up. "Did he bring along anyone?"

"Answering Your Majesty, there's a young woman alongside Sir Xuan Tian." The eunuch lowered his head as he reverently and respectfully reported.

The dragon-robed man immediately became excited and his voice contained an unsuppressible tremble. "Hurry and invite them in!"

"Your subordinate obeys!" The eunuch bowed and retreated.

Not long after, Xuan Tian and Jian Chengwen entered and there was a woman with breathtaking appearance following alongside them.

The young lady was dressed in white robes, without a speck of dust on her and her raised brows were filled with arrogance. However, the dragon-robed man sensed a devilish aura on her!

The Emperor regained his senses soon and asked, "Xuan Tian, this lady is the physician you've invited?"

Xuan Tian nodded his head. "Yes, Your Majesty, your subordinate is referring to her."

Even though Xuan Tian had said that the physician was very young and told him to be prepared, but the Emperor would have never expected she would be so young.

Regardless, the Emperor trusted Xuan Tian and did not doubt his words while he spoke respectfully, "Great Master, may I know if the Empress's illness can be cured?"

Yun Luofeng walked to the bedside quietly and her eyes swept across the Empress body as she involuntarily frowned.

Jian Chengwen's heart thumped. "Xiao Luofeng, is your Aunt Xue's illness uncurable?"

The Emperor was originally skeptical of Jian Chengwen's addressing of Yun Luofeng yet at the next moment after hearing her words, he was instantly frightened stiff as his face turned pale.

"She was poisoned." Yun Luofeng loosened her brows, "After being inflicted with such poison, her skin would be similar to an infant's. However, if accidentally touched, her skin would rupture and in addition..."

Yun Luofeng paused for a moment before continuing. "She's inflicted with another type of poison! Wait, this shouldn't be known as poison but instead, a type of parasite and those inflicted with it will gradually become greedy for sleep until they are completely in a deep sleep without waking! As such, the Empress's illness is somewhat troublesome..."
