Chapter 312: The Sect Leader Wakes Up Grumpy Every Day (60)

Elder Li’s hands paused briefly.

“Master, I will do my utmost.”

Seven day Gu is a long-lost Gu technique in the martial arts world. It is said that the person who is struck by this Gu will undoubtedly die after seven days, and there is no medicine to cure it.

Elder Li knew this well, and Jun Jiuling was undoubtedly aware too.

However, as a subordinate, he knew his master couldn’t bear to hear such words now. Meanwhile, Jun Jiuling resembled a caged beast, his eyes bloodshot like a demon, focused solely on the person lying on the bed.

After the door closed, Jun Jiuling gripped the girl’s hand tightly. Feeling the warmth of her palm, he exhaled slowly.

Staring intently at her pale face, he murmured, “Bai Bai, I will save you.”

After tucking her in, he stood up and left the room. His expression turned dark, and the rage and killing intent in his eyes frightened everyone around him.

“Find out who did this. I want them to suffer a fate worse than death!”

Even Yun Niang, who had been in the Fire Lotus Sect for many years, had never seen Jun Jiuling so terrifying. Thinking of the girl inside, she couldn’t help but sigh.

When Shen Mubai woke up, Yun Niang was the first person she saw.

With a delighted expression, Yun Niang helped her sit up and said, “Madam, you’re awake.”

Shen Mubai, still feeling groggy, recalled the events from the wedding ceremony and asked, “Third Hall Master, what happened to me?”

Yun Niang’s eyes flickered, but she quickly composed herself, a slight smile playing on her lips.

“Madam, you had a minor ailment. Don’t worry; once you’re better, we will arrange the wedding again.”

She added, “I’ll go inform the master.”

Shen Mubai, not convinced, asked the system once Yun Niang had left.

The system provided an honest account.

Shen Mubai was quite troubled. Who would go to such lengths to harm her? However, considering she would eventually leave this world, she wasn’t too concerned.

Jun Jiuling arrived soon after. The gloom of the past two days lifted slightly when he saw her.

Shen Mubai’s hand was tightly held by him, and she felt conflicted.


In the past, addressing him this way would have made Jun Jiuling’s face darken, but now he only cared about her well-being.

“How are you feeling?”

Feeling the Gu worm inside her, Shen Mubai was repulsed but tried to stay calm.

“My stomach doesn’t hurt anymore.”

She cautiously asked, “Master, is there something wrong with my body?”

Jun Jiuling’s face tightened, hiding his dark thoughts. He gently stroked her hair and said softly, “There’s no problem. Just rest for a few days. I’ll handle everything.”

Shen Mubai obediently agreed.

Not long after, Yun Niang brought in the medicine.

She placed the dark, murky potion on the table and said, “Master, Elder Li’s medicine is ready.”

Jun Jiuling nodded.

“You may leave.”

Yun Niang’s eyes were filled with worry.


Once the door closed again, Jun Jiuling took the bowl of medicine, scooped a spoonful, and brought it to Shen Mubai’s lips.

“Here, drink this obediently.”

Shen Mubai swallowed, wrinkling her nose.

“Master, it smells awful and looks bitter.”

Jun Jiuling’s lips curled slightly, looking at her with a mix of affection and helplessness.

“Bitter medicine cures the illness.”
