The Substitute Madam Amazes the World Once More - Chapter 158 - The Antidote
Mo Zhu held Huo Xuan’s hand and raised her eyebrows. “Make a guess.”
After hearing her words, not only Huo Xuan, even Mo Zhu was speechless for a moment. However, it wasn’t surprising that Mo Zhu could understand all of this given her sharp mind.
“Ms. Mo, with Old Master Huo’s current health, can he really be cured with just a few doses of medicine? Does he require other treatment?” As Old Master Huo’s doctor, Mo Jiu was really anxious about his condition.
Mo Zhu sighed and replied lightly, “I’m afraid drinking medicine alone won’t do.”
When Huo Xuan heard this, he looked up and grabbed Mo Zhu’s hand worriedly as well. He frowned and said, “The situation in Beijing now is not simple. The various families are restless. The old master is the backbone of the Huo family. Nothing must happen to him!”
Regardless of whether it was for the Huo family or himself, he didn’t want anything to happen to Old Master Huo.
Mo Zhu understood Huo Xuan’s feelings for his grandfather. In the Huo family’s mansion, Old Master Huo should be one of the only few people who had treated him well sincerely. She gently patted Huo Xuan’s hand and said softly, “Don’t worry. Using the acupuncture technique I taught you, use the Seven Star Acupuncture Technique to consecutively give the old man acupuncture for seven days. Together with the medicine, the poison should be able to be expelled cleanly.”
After a pause, Mo Zhu pursed her lips and continued, “However, Old Master Huo is old after all. After all this, it’s impossible for his body to return to its former tough state. You have to be more careful in the future. If you’re not careful, he might end up bedridden with diseases.”
Just as Mo Zhu finished speaking, Mo Jiu slammed the table and cursed angrily, “The Huo family is really full of scoundrels. It’s fine that they didn’t care about Master Huo when he was in trouble and continued to add fuel to the fire, but now, they are disregarding Elder Huo’s safety to achieve their goal!”
At this moment, Huo Xuan also felt a surge of anger in his heart. His expression was cold and his face ashen. He wished he could make the mastermind behind the scenes kneel down in front of the old man to apologize to him. However, even so, it couldn’t make up for the hurt and pain the old man had suffered.
Mo Zhu understood how Huo Xuan’s felt. She was silent for a few seconds before comforting him, “God will definitely bless Grandpa Huo. As long as he nurses his body well, he will definitely live a long life.”
Considering the other people in the Huo family, Mo Zhu changed the topic and her expression darkened. “Although this matter has passed, we still have to be careful. These people won’t stop until they have achieved their goal. Old Master can’t afford to suffer a second time.”
Naturally, Huo Xuan knew what kind of people the Huo family had. He nodded, his eyes dark. “I understand. I’ll send people to keep a close eye on this place.”
After saying this, the three of them fell silent in thought. Not long later, Old Master Huo woke up and learned about what had taken place in the main hall. He instructed the servants to call Huo Xuan and Mo Zhu in.
When Mo Zhu pushed the door open and entered the house, Old Master Huo was leaning against the soft mattress on the bed. When he saw Mo Zhu enter, he smiled kindly and waved at the girl from afar. “Xiao Zhu, come to grandpa.”
Mo Zhu obediently took two steps forward and sat down on the side of the bed.
Old Master Huo propped himself up and sat upright. He pulled Mo Zhu’s hand and said sincerely, “Xiao Zhu, I’m sorry that you had to encounter such a situation the moment you arrived at the Huo family.”
Mo Zhu obediently held the old man’s hand and nodded lightly. “It’s alright, grandpa.”
After saying this, Old Master Huo turned to look at Huo Xuan, who was following behind Mo Zhu quietly. “Xuan, this girl has just arrived in Beijing and is unfamiliar with the people and place. You have to take good care of her for the next few days. When I’m feeling better tomorrow, go book a hotel and let’s have a happy family reunion dinner.”
Huo Xuan looked up at Old Master Huo and replied gently, “Okay, grandpa, rest well..”
