Chapter 82: Hanging Between Life and Death (2)
Zhou Xiaoxiao held onto her and said, “There’s no need for the Lady to make her salutations. Let’s go right now!”
In front of State Duke Residence’s door.
As soon as they got off the horse carriage, Lady Guo tightly held onto Zhou Xiaoxiao’s hands and walked quickly.
Yet, Zhou Xiaoxiao didn’t like how slow she was so she called for Cheng Shizhao to lead the way. The two sprinted over and in a few jumps, they were gone and left the servants at their original spots.
In Yu Xingzhi’s bedroom right now.
Smoke lingered in the air and there was a strong smell of herbs and medicine.
On the carved bed and behind the muslin curtains, Yu Xingzhi faced up and his eyes were tightly shut; his face was pale white and he was unconscious.
The elderly imperial physicians, all having white hair, gathered by the bedside and stroked their beards. They knitted their eyebrows and couldn’t help but sigh.
Numerous servant girls furrowed their eyebrows and held bowls of medicine in their hands, cautiously pouring medicine down his throat.
It entered his mouth but he didn’t swallow it, as the liquid flowed down the corner of his lips.
Right now, they heard a bang and the door was pushed open. Cheng Shizhao and Zhou Xiaoxiao entered the room.
She quickly walked to the bedside and glanced at Yu Xingzhi’s pale white face. Her eyes flickered and she felt as if thousands of sharp diggers were digging her heart out. She reached over to touch his handsome face but felt only the coldness. It didn’t even feel like he was alive.
“Elderlys.” Zhou Xiaoxiao turned around and bowed deeply at the imperial physicians, begging them, “Xingzhi, he…there’s really nothing you guys can do?”
One of the imperial physicians shook his head and said, “It’s not that we aren’t willing to help out but this is an extremely powerful poison. It makes General Yu’s muscles stiffen so that he can’t swallow medicine. Due to this, even the rebirth of the great doctor Hua Tuo can’t save him.”
Zhou Xiaoxiao felt her body was in a freezer, only coldness surrounded her.
She stared at Yu Xingzhi’s unconscious but handsome face, feeling endless melancholy surging in her heart. She stumbled a few steps before slowly shaking her head slowly.
“Yu Xingzhi, Yu Xingzhi! You liar! Ever since I transmigrated here, I’ve done almost nothing but chase you everywhere. You’re the one who said you’re going to marry me! I didn’t even force you, so why do you keep on leaving me behind?!” She pointed her finger at him, almost in front of his face.
“You’re so cruel and harsh! Fine, if you died right now, I’ll go marry someone else, so you better not regret this!”
In that moment, Zhou Xiaoxiao felt like there was something wrong with her vision. She could feel his eyelashes slightly twitching. Zhou Xiaoxiao was stunned.
One of the servant girls asked, “Did Lord Wu’s eyelashes flicker for a moment?”
Zhou Xiaoxiao leaned down and carefully stared at Xingzhi’s face.
While gently touching his hair, she softly called, “Xingzhi? Xingzhi?”
Yu Xingzhi’s face was like a frozen glacier, remaining unmoved even after a while.
Zhou Xiaoxiao replied, “Give me the medicine.”
The servant girl carrying the bowl of medicine was confused. “Lady, you…you are?”
Cheng Shizhao reprimanded her in a low voice, “Give her the medicine!”
Prince Yan had a lot of authority, making her servant girl obeying his orders and shiver in fear.
Zhou Xiaoxiao pressed on Yu Xingzhi’s chin and pried his mouth open. She drank the medicine and fed him with her mouth. At the same time, she pressed his forehead with her right hand and raised his chin. She pressed different acupuncture on him back and forth.
She couldn’t help but softly say, “Xingzhi, you have to be persistent and swallow the medicine for me.”
Under everyone’s gazes, Yu Xingzhi swallowed with difficulty.
Everyone let out gasps in the room.
Zhou Xiaoxiao repeated the same process and fed him.
She stared at him with a burning gaze.
“Xingzhi, be good and take another sip.”
Everyone held their breaths and finally saw his adam’s apple bobbing down and swallowing the medicine.
There were cheers in the room.
All the servant girls held their hands together and cried tears of joy.
Cheng Shizhao clapped his hands suddenly and said, “Good job!”
The imperial physicians applauded and said, “Fortunate, fortunate. As long as he could take in medicine, there is a chance to save him. Lady, stay here and feed him medicine while we consult over a new prescription for the general.”
Right now, Lady Guo and the other ladies hurried over.
The moment they walked in, they saw Zhou Xiaoxiao leaning on Yu Xingzhi and their lips touching.
This made the young women halt in their footsteps all of a sudden and they blushed, covering their faces with their sleeves.
