After winning another round, Mo Zhu was not in the mood to continue playing. She turned her phone screen off and stuffed it into her pocket. She leaned back in her chair and closed her eyes to rest.
The chaotic conversation around them continued intermittently. Half an hour later, Huo Xuan and Mo Jiu walked out of Old Master Huo’s room one after another.
Seeing the two of them appear, Huo Lian couldn’t help but take a step forward and ask, “How’s the old man? Is he alright?”
Huo Xuan, who came out first, ignored her and walked past Huo Lian to Mo Zhu’s side.
Upon seeing this, Mo Jiu looked up and answered calmly, “I just gave the old master a pill that can alleviate the poison. After taking the pill, I gave the old master an injection. He’s much better now. He should not consume overly nourishing food for the time being. As long as you nurse him well, his condition shouldn’t worsen.”
Upon hearing Mo Jiu’s words, the entire Huo family heaved a sigh of relief. The old master had suddenly fainted and was found to be poisoned. Everyone had gone through a lot that night.
“As long as he’s fine, as long as he’s fine.” Huo Qing nodded, stood up from the chair, and walked to the door of Old Master Huo’s room. “Since Old Master’s condition has stabilized, I’ll go and see him.”
As Huo Qing spoke, she raised her hand and was about to push open the door. Unexpectedly, just as she finished speaking, Mo Jiu reached out and stopped her. Mo Jiu frowned and said coldly, “It’s not convenient for others to disturb Old Master Huo’s current condition. If it affects his condition, with his current physical functions, it will be harder for him to recover in the future.”
When she heard this, Huo Lian, who was about to enter with Huo Qing, couldn’t help but reprimand, “What are you talking about! We’re all members of the Huo family. Are we not allowed to see him now that he’s sick?”
After saying this, Huo Lian still felt that it wasn’t enough and continued nagging. “How can we know how the old man is now just by listening to your one-sided story? You’re not a member of the Huo family. You have no right to stop us from visiting the old man!”
Huo Lian’s words resonated with many of the members of the Huo family. The main hall that had been quiet for a while now was filled with whispers and agreement.
“Yes, allow us to go in and visit the old man. Who knows if he has really recovered?”
“I don’t care. I won’t listen to anyone. I want to see the old man’s condition with my own eyes! That’s the only way we can be relieved.”
Seeing that everyone was arguing non-stop, Huo Xuan gently raised his hands and placed them by Mo Zhu’s ear. He looked up in Mo Jiu’s direction and instructed with cold eyes, “Open the door and let them stand at the door and look from afar. Without my permission, no one is allowed to approach the old master from now on!”
After receiving a definite answer, before Mo Jiu could open the door, everyone rushed in.
A few minutes later, the Huo family members walked out of the house one after another after they had finished observing the old man’s condition. Seeing that the old man’s condition had stabilized, no one was willing to stay and get involved in this mess. One by one, they took the initiative to leave the Huo residence.
When most of the people had left, Mo Zhu leaned against the back of the chair and slowly opened her eyes. She had just stretched when Mo Jiu walked over from behind. “Ms. Mo, I’ve already given the pill that you secretly gave me to the old man. Not only that, I brought the Seven Star Needle with me when I came to the Huo family. After giving the old man the pill, I gave him a simple acupuncture treatment according to the acupuncture technique you taught me previously.”
“Yes.” Mo Zhu nodded in understanding when she heard this. She seemed to have recalled something and she frowned as she asked, “Has the poison in the old man really been controlled?”
Mo Jiu’s expression froze as he replied worriedly, “No, the excuse I gave was instructed by Master Huo. The old master’s poison is still spreading in his body, the situation isn’t looking good..”
