Chapter 222: Silencing through Murder
Dr. Zhou very fiercely glares at Muyan, “What have you done to my daughter?”
Muyan has a smile that isn’t a smile: “Didn’t I say it? Make a patient with the exact same illness as my father! Why not let the patient be your daughter, Zhou Huanu?”
“Oh, that’s right. It can’t really be considered to be ‘exactly the same’, because I added some other ingredients in this poison. That is, this poison can be transmitted through blood, saliva and teeth… oh, it’s contagious! Not only that – I’ve also accelerated the speed in which it breaks out – by a hundred times. If you can’t detoxify it immediately, Dr. Zhou, you and your daughter will certainly die a violent death after two hours!”
Dr. Zhou shudders from head to foot, his complexion turns deathly pale, and his lips are trembling, “You… what are you saying? What poison? I… I didn’t know!”
“Really? So as it turns out, Dr. Zhou doesn’t know that my father had been poisoned?” Muyan shakes her head with a sigh, “That’s truly a great pity. If you can’t cure my father, Dr. Zhou, you definitely won’t be able to keep your and your precious daughter’s lives!”
Dr. Zhou’s eyes are wide open in shock, his face is filled with horror.
He whips his head to look at Su Yuexiang, “Antidote, give me and Nunu the antidote!”
Saying that, he unexpectedly rushes over and clings on Su Yuexiang’s leg.
Su Yuexiang’s complexion is ashen, “What nonsense are you talking about? How can I possibly have an antidote?”
“Didn’t you make me come to see Master Shen’s condition? Didn’t you say that as long as Shen Jinglin…”
Before Dr. Zhou could finish his words, there’s a sudden wet sound from behind him, the sound of a sword thrust into flesh.
Shen Xiaoru pulls out the sword that had pierced into Dr. Zhou’s body, and with a turn of the blade, she stabs it into Zhou Huanu’s heart.
“That damned thing, even dared to scheme against our Shen family, die!”
With that, Shen Xiaoru even sends a meaningful glance to Su Yuexiang.
Su Yuexiang immediately understands, so she nods again and again, “Exactly, I didn’t expect that this fellow surnamed Zhou is actually a fraudulent liar. Our family’s Jinglin was almost cheated by him. Fortunately, Muyan exposed them.”
Muyan has a mockery of a smile as she watches this pair of mother and daughter act out a good show.
The young woman’s smile is undoubtedly very beautiful, but Su Yuexiang and Shen Xiaoru feel their bodies going cold, like there’s brambles and thorns on their backs.
Su Yuexiang forces a smile, “Muyan, I didn’t expect that after not seeing you for five years, your medical skills have become so good? By the way, since you can place the same poison on Zhou Huanu, does that mean that you can also cure your father’s illness?”
While she’s saying this, Su Yuexiang has an anxious and concerned look on the surface of her face.
But there is a flash of fear within the depths of her eyes.
If Shen Yicheng wakes up, then what she did…
Muyan sends a glance towards the Shen father on the ground, unhurriedly saying: “Curing him is possible, but the poison has already gone too deep inside father. Curing him would need at least seven days. During this time, father can only remain to be in a coma.”
Hearing that it would take seven days for the Shen patriarch to be cured, Su Yuexiang and Shen Xiaoru distinctly reveal an expression that looks as if they are relieved from a burden.
Even more, Shen Xiaoru cracks out a sinister smile.
Humph, seven days later, Jun Muyan, you would already be carried into the Lu family, pressed under that fool, wantonly toyed with and insulted.
How could you still resuscitate this old-but-living bastard then?
Muyan watches the expressions on these two, and a chilling intent flickers within her eyes.
The Shen father is no longer in a state of madness, but in a coma. As a result, he is transferred out of the dark and damp dungeon, and into a wing.
Shen Jinglin sits by the window, the corners of his eyes red as he looks at his father’s sleeping appearance.
“Brother, now can you tell me, just why would father get poisoned? Also, what happened in the family these past few years?”
