At the same time.
In a luxurious mansion in Beijing.
A man in a high-end suit and exuding a cold aura was sitting quietly on the sofa in the main hall.
He was leaning against the soft cushion of the sofa and lazily playing with the keychain in his hand. On the coffee table in front of him was wine that had been decanted by the servants in advance.
A moment later, a subordinate hurriedly entered. When he saw the man, he lowered his head respectfully and reported honestly, “Young Master, I’ve already poisoned Old Master Huo according to your instructions, but that girl called Mo Zhu didn’t take action.”
The man raised his eyebrows when he heard this. He picked up his glass and took a sip unhurriedly before saying with interest, “Oh? This young lady is quite incredible. She can still remain so calm even after Old Master Huo was poisoned.”
The subordinate pinched his eyebrows. “Young Master, perhaps we have overestimated Mo Zhu. She might really be just an ordinary high school student as the information shows.”
After a pause, he emphasized, “This time, we’ve spent a lot of effort to get someone to put a poison that has symptoms similar to that of the Heart-Devouring Poison in Old Master Huo’s teacup. The person who was sent to scout the news said that the person who cured Old Master Huo was the subordinate of Huo Xuan named Mo Jiu.”
“Besides that, that person also said that even Huo Xuan’s Heart-Devouring Poison was cured by Mo Jiu.”
The man sat quietly on the sofa and played with the keychain unhurriedly. After hearing the person’s words, he said coldly, “You don’t even understand this little trick that they have pulled. I’ve really raised you bunch of trash for nothing. This is just a little trick Mo Zhu made. That Mo Jiu has always been by Huo Xuan’s side. If he could cure the Heart-Devouring Poison, Huo Xuan wouldn’t have traveled so far to Cloud City to recuperate.”
The subordinate was frightened by the man’s cold tone. He looked up with trembling eyes and said, “Young Master, that Mo Jiu claimed to have visited famous doctors all over the country and searched and read through ancient books for a long time before he had found a way to cure the Heart-Devouring Poison.”
The man sneered, “You believe whatever he says? Forget it, I won’t explain too much to you. Send someone to continue keeping a close eye on that girl, Mo Zhu. Huo Xuan’s poison was definitely cured by her. There are so many people in Beijing who have their eyes on the Huo family. I want to see how long she can hide for.”
After hearing the man’s arrangement, the subordinate nodded obediently. After a while, he looked at the man hesitantly and said respectfully, “Young Master, I have a plan. I don’t know if I should say it.”
“Instead of sending so many people to pay attention to this little girl from the Huo family, why don’t we just go to the Love Pavilion’s headquarters and place an order with Cheng Yi? Didn’t our people find out previously that as long as Almighty K is willing to accept the order, there’s no one in the world he can’t find? We can spend a lot of money to hire Almighty K to find the legendary divine doctor who has never been seen.”
The man put down the keychain and his fingers tapped the coffee table lightly. He snorted and said, “To think that you could come up with this lousy idea. It’s been so long since Almighty K has accepted an order. Even if we found the Love Pavilion headquarters and personally beg Cheng Yi, he still won’t accept the order that Almighty K doesn’t want.”
Although it was true that Cheng Yi was the leader of the Pavilion of Love, Almighty K could be considered the biggest trump card of the Pavilion of Love. He had immense freedom in the entire Pavilion of Love, and even Cheng Yi could not interfere or criticize the rules and ways he wanted to take up his orders.
Furthermore, according to their investigations over the years, Almighty K should be someone who was familiar with the divine doctor. For a long time, as long as Almighty K took on the order to look for the divine doctor, he had never failed and he could accurately find the divine doctor’s location every time.
Now that Almighty K wasn’t accepting orders, the reason was obvious too. It was probably because the divine doctor had specially instructed him that it was inconvenient for him to show up recently.
After being rejected by the man, the subordinate scratched his head and was a little flustered. He frowned worriedly and asked, “Then what should we do, Young Master? The hospital has sent news that Master’s illness can’t be delayed any longer.. If we still can’t find the divine doctor, I’m afraid it won’t end well…”
