Chapter 124: Treating Sexual Dysfunction and Backache
EndlessFantasy Translation EndlessFantasy Translation
The night had fallen.
The glow of stars shone onto a village in the mountains, adding a sad and melancholic atmosphere to the White Miao Village.
Ye Chen sat in the village’s tower with his daughter. He was quietly taking a good look at the entire village. He found out that the life of the people of White Miao Village had stopped developing 30 years ago.
They were still using braziers for light, earthen stoves to cook, and were fetching drinking water from a well.
However, he was relieved after figuring that the terrain they were living in was rather remote and the people in the village refused the entry of outsiders.
A unique aspect of this place was that the night view in the village was pretty. There were frogs croaking in the paddy field far away under the stars and the ginkgo tree next to the tower was shining.
“Daddy, I’m hungry.”
The little girl held her flat tummy in his embrace and could not stop complaining.
Ye Chen comforted. “Do you want to eat a medicinal pill?”
“No, I want rice and meat.” The little girl shook her head and demanded.
A bowl of rice and meat was nothing compared to the medicinal pill that outsiders could not buy with money.
Ye Chen was troubled. He looked around and saw a chicken coop that belonged to another family. He was hesitating whether he should steal a chicken for the little girl to feast.
At that moment, they smelled the fragrance of food.
The little girl loudly gulped. “Daddy, I smell food. It smells so good!”
Ye Chen looked following the fragrance. He saw a pretty silhouette walking over while carrying a large metal pot and a bamboo basket.
It was Xiao Ya.
“You guys must be famished?” Xiao Ya put the pot on the ground and apologetically smiled toward Ye Chen and his daughter.
The little girl struggled out of Ye Chen’s embrace and her eyes lit up as she looked at the large pot. “Aunty Xiao, what did you make for us? It smells so good!”
“You will find out after you open the lid.” Xiao Ya softly pinched her small cheeks.
The little girl casually opened the pot lid and a thick fragrance came out.
“It smells so good!” That was all the little girl could say at the moment.
Ye Chen could not help but gulp too.
“It’s the little black herb chicken stew.”
Xiao Ya smiled and introduced. “We treat our honorable guests with this in our village whenever they visit. The little black herb is also called the trident maple. It’s a kind of medicine that treats sexual dysfunction, backache, asthma, and also improves blood circulation.”
Sexual dysfunction, backache?
Ye Chen’s face froze.
Xiao Ya took out two bowls of steaming hot rice from the bamboo basket and gave them to the little girl and Ye Chen. “Please eat, I’ll bring you more if it’s not enough.”
“Thank you! Aunty Xiao. You’re the best.”
The little girl sweetly smiled and began eating after picking up the bowl. She was smart and picked up a piece of chicken for Ye Chen.
Then she surprisingly said, “Daddy, you should eat more. You’ll only have the strength to fight if you eat enough!”
Ye Chen was speechless.
‘So to you, your daddy is just a barbarian who is always fighting?’
He suddenly had the urge to abandon this daughter.
He hesitated before picking up the bowl and began eating at a normal pace.
Meanwhile, Xiao Ya sat aside and quietly watched the father and daughter with her hands supporting her chin. She had her pretty eyes on Ye Chen and she was spacing out without realizing.
“Is there something on my face?” Ye Chen said while eating without even lifting his head.
Xiao Ya’s cheeks flushed and she quickly looked away. She hesitated for a while and said, “Ye Chen, I’m sorry!”
“What are you sorry for?”
“I-I shouldn’t have done that to you guys.”
She buried her head as she talked. She tightly clenched her fists and said, “Those two bottles of drinks, I-I almost hurt you guys.”
“Just let it be in the past. Moreover, you did stop us during that critical moment?” Ye Chen smiled.
“Although that’s the case, I still can’t get over it.”
Xiao Ya could not forgive herself as she mumbled. “You’ve found out about Black Miao Village now. I was taken to the Black Miao Village when I was 15. Their high priest placed a gu in my body and hid me outside the village so that my granny and the rest won’t be able to find me.
“I’m not sure if I’m a bad person to you. Perhaps I am, a person like me won’t live a good life.”
Her tears were dropping like a broken necklace with beads falling off as she spoke.
The little girl stopped eating. She looked at Xiao Ya and said, “Aunty Xiao, are you hungry? My daddy is right, you guys are too poor. You guys would rather go hungry and feed me and my daddy.”
Ye Chen was speechless.
‘You damn kid, how could you say that?’
Xiao Ya chuckled. She angrily rolled her eyes at the little girl after wiping her tears. “You mean little girl, I’m not poor. I have more money than your daddy.”
“My daddy has billions.” The little girl pouted. It seemed like she wanted to say more.
Ye Chen picked up a piece of chicken and pushed it into her mouth. He turned toward Xiao Ya and asked, “It was the Black Miao Village’s high priest who placed the gu in your body?”
Xiao Ya nodded as fear filled her pretty face. “It’s not the usual gu. I heard from Uncle Li that it’s Black Miao Village’s gold silkworm gu’s egg. As soon as it gets into my body, the high priest can control me even if he’s 1,000 miles away. Especially when the gu breaks out…
“Moreover, only the high priest can remove it. Granny and the rest couldn’t come out with a solution either…”
Her body was shaking and she could not speak any further. She clearly experienced something terrible.
“Is this it?”
A white worm that looked like a silkworm baby suddenly appeared in Ye Chen’s hand.
Xiao Ya instinctively nodded and subsequently stared with her pretty eyes wide open. “W-Where did you get this?”
“From your body!” Ye Chen said while smiling.
Xiao Ya screamed and said in disbelief, “No way, are you saying that this is the gu in my body?”
“That’s right.” Ye Chen nodded.
Xiao Ya was shocked. “H-How did you get it out?”
“It’s simple, I got it out because I wanted to.” Ye Chen burped and said in a blurry manner.
Xiao Ya was speechless.
‘You got it out because you want to?
‘That is a gold silkworm gu’s egg and it’s been cursed by the high priest. Apart from him, nobody could remove it.’
Ye Chen frowned after noticing her blankly stare at him. “You don’t believe me? Do you want me to put it back?”
Xiao Ya screamed and instantly retreated a few steps. She stared at him in disbelief and said after a few seconds, “Ye Chen, sometimes I really doubt if you’re my old classmate.”
He killed Li Yuan with a slap!
He removed the gu that the high priest cast in her body without her realizing it.
Were ordinary people really capable of doing that?
“Don’t tell anyone, just keep it to yourself. I don’t want to be interrogated by the three old men and the old lady like a criminal.”
Ye Chen casually smiled.
Xiao Ya took a deep breath and said with gratitude, “Thank you, Ye Chen.”
“It doesn’t help with anything for you to say that. Uhh, can you get me another bowl of rice? This chicken stew that fixes sexual dysfunction is pretty good…”
At the same time in a valley 50 miles away, an eerie village stood in the dark. There was a cave with a brazier inside.
A person covered in a black robe was chanting at the brazier across him. Fireballs of the size of a fist leaped out and into his hands as he danced.
The brazier exploded at that moment and sparks were everywhere!
The man in the black robe spat a mouthful of blood and it directly pierced through the cave wall.
“Who?! Who killed my gu?” The black robed man roared as if he had gone insane. He looked shocked.
He suddenly turned his head and looked at the entrance of the cave. He turned around and said in a deep voice, “Come in!”
An old man in his 60s and subsequently walked in with a grim expression. He kneeled onto the ground when he arrived less than 10 steps away from the man in the black robe.
“High priest, Li Yuan’s natal gu is dead!”
The man in black robe was not surprised at all. He said without even turning his head, “How did that useless thing die?”
“We found his body at the scene and also found something from the White Miao Village!” the grim old man said in fear.
“White Miao Village, White Miao Village is it? I was not planning on ending you guys so soon. Since you guys are seeking death, don’t blame me for what I’m about to do!”
The man in black robe scoffed.
“Pass down my word. Order the Li, Yin, Zhao, and Ma clans’ patriarchs to lead 500 people each. We’ll go to the White Miao Village tomorrow before daybreak.
“All four Illuminating Pulse experts will fight. If they fail to demolish the White Miao Village this time, everyone will be tossed into the Divine Dragon Pond!
“Bring that b*tch back too!”
