Chapter 1656: w.a.n.g Chong Intervenes!
Translated by: Hypersheep325
Edited by: Michyrr
“The news of King Song’s collapse has already spread throughout the capital. Many major officials have already come to see him,” Lu Ting remarked as he walked into the estate with w.a.n.g Chong.
When the pa.s.sersby saw Lu Ting and w.a.n.g Chong, many of them respectfully bowed.
w.a.n.g Chong’s prestige was at its zenith, and there was practically no one who did not respect or fear him.
w.a.n.g Chong was uneasy and in no state of mind to reciprocate the courtesy. He simply nodded to them before continuing with Lu Ting into the estate.
One of the large halls was simply packed with people. Inside were rows of imperial physicians, surrounded by numerous maids carrying towels and basins. Everyone was looking in the same direction with great concern.
In the center of this hall, w.a.n.g Chong saw King Song.
His lips were purple and his eyes were tightly shut. His aura was like a candle flickering in the wind, about to go out at any moment. The situation was grim.
w.a.n.g Chong instantly felt his heart being seized.
In w.a.n.g Chong’s mind, King Song was a mighty mountain that no pressure or disaster would ever be able to topple. As long as King Song was present, the empire would have one last pillar that would prevent everything from descending into complete mayhem.
But the King Song on the sickbed was completely different from what w.a.n.g Chong remembered. His body was feeble and continuing to decline, and the thick aura of death could be felt within his body.
“Just what is King Song’s condition?”
w.a.n.g Chong felt his heart sinking.
“This… The poison in King Song’s body is far too domineering, and we’ve never even seen this kind of poison before. We’ve… done all we can.”
The most senior imperial physician in the room shook his head and sighed.
w.a.n.g Chong felt his body grow cold and his heart sink.
“The situation is not good. We tried everything we could to drive the poison out of his body, but… none of them had an effect,” Zhangchou Jianqiong said in his deep and mellow voice as he walked out from behind w.a.n.g Chong, his brow tightly furrowed.
The collapse of King Song had thrown his entire residence into disorder. Zhangchou Jianqiong had been looking over doc.u.ments when he heard the news and rushed over.
He had come somewhat earlier than w.a.n.g Chong, so he understood a little more about King Song’s condition. However, the poison had already burrowed deep into King Song’s bones, and even though Zhangchou Jianqiong had done all he could to treat him, his efforts had failed.
He could understand w.a.n.g Chong’s emotions, but there was very little they could do about King Song’s condition.
“Impossible! Given King Song’s cultivation, how could there be a poison that can’t be driven out?”
w.a.n.g Chong shook his head. The King Song lineage had been close to the w.a.n.g Clan for several generations, and for w.a.n.g Chong, King Song was both a senior and a close friend. How could he accept such a formidable figure collapsing without any warning?
“Let me take a look!”
w.a.n.g Chong’s eyes flashed, and he immediately parted the crowd and made his way up to King Song’s bed, his middle and index fingers touching King Song’s wrist. At the same time, Stellar Energy flowed from them into King Song’s body.
A few moments later, w.a.n.g Chong turned grim.
At the Great General level, one would have a powerful resistance to many kinds of poisons, but the poison in King Song’s body was different. Its soft exterior concealed extraordinary toughness, and it was able to somehow fuse with King Song’s Stellar Energy and creep into the rest of his body.
With his Psychic Energy, w.a.n.g Chong was able to sense that black strands of viscous poison had already seeped into King Song’s limbs, his cells, and his bone marrow.
“How could it be like this?”
w.a.n.g Chong felt chills as he explored the situation in King Song’s body. The poison had already deeply rooted itself in King Song.
If it had stopped at the skin, blood, and organs, there would have been no major problems.
But now that it was in the marrow, it was incredibly difficult to deal with.
Even the most ordinary of poisons became incurable once it reached the marrow, with medicines no longer able to treat it, much less a fierce poison like this.
“How could it be like this?”
w.a.n.g Chong finally understood why the imperial physicians were helpless and why even Zhangchou Jianqiong had said such words.
But only a little time should have pa.s.sed since King Song’s collapse. How could this poison have been so fierce that it had already seeped into his marrow like a long-festering poison?
As this thought flitted through his mind, w.a.n.g Chong turned to a man standing motionlessly by the bed, tears streaking down his cold and elderly face.
“Old butler, what’s going on here?”
If there was one person who could answer w.a.n.g Chong’s questions, it was the old butler.
Everyone’s eyes focused on the old butler, including Zhangchou Jianqiong’s.
“I cannot tell you. Before falling unconscious, His Highness forbade me from revealing any information on this matter,” the old butler sternly said.
w.a.n.g Chong’s face froze in astonishment.
This answer was the exact opposite of what he had hoped for, and the mood in the hall turned oppressive. King Song was seriously ill, but still the old butler kept his mouth shut, essentially helping those people who were plotting against King Song.
This was simply too illogical.
But when w.a.n.g Chong saw the old butler’s wrinkled face, he took back any words he had planned to say.
Although the old butler had kept an extremely calm tone, there was a deep pain in his eyes as he looked at the pale and weak King Song.
He was clearly more pained than anyone else by the attack on King Song, and he clearly wouldn’t have kept silent unless there was a reason for doing so.
After gazing at the old butler for a few moments, w.a.n.g Chong turned back to King Song.
He could investigate the person who had harmed King Song later. His first priority was treating King Song.
“How long can King Song maintain his current condition?” w.a.n.g Chong suddenly said.
“Until sunset at most.”
The leading imperial physician sighed. His clothes were much more luxurious than the other physicians’, and w.a.n.g Chong vaguely recalled that this was Divine Physician Zheng of the palace. He had attained an extremely high level of cultivation in the medicinal arts, and even the Sage Emperor had praised his abilities.
“If there’s a way of removing the poison from his marrow, can you save him?” w.a.n.g Chong said.
“This… King Song’s greatest problem is the poison in his marrow, making medicine ineffective. If we can remove the poison there, King Song’s condition will naturally improve. But doing so is much easier said…”
Divine Physician Zheng deeply frowned. What w.a.n.g Chong had talked about was completely impossible. If it had been that easy, all these imperial physicians of the inner court wouldn’t be standing around so helplessly.
He naturally knew that the King of Foreign Lands was a supreme martial artist of formidable cultivation, but Stellar Energy could not enter the marrow. There were no meridians there to speak of, so even martial arts masters could do nothing.
However, w.a.n.g Chong cut off Divine Physician Zheng before he could finish.
“I have an idea for this, but can you cure the poison in the rest of King Song’s body?”
“Well, with the medicines of the palace, we should be able to,” Divine Physician Zheng hesitantly said.
“w.a.n.g Chong, I can understand what you’re feeling, but this is pointless!”
Zhangchou Jianqiong came and gave w.a.n.g Chong a comforting pat on the shoulder.
w.a.n.g Chong’s reaction was understandable, but not even these imperial physicians could do anything. w.a.n.g Chong was being a little too stubborn.
But w.a.n.g Chong didn’t appear to listen. He closed his eyes and began to think.
A few moments later, w.a.n.g Chong seized King Song’s wrist.
“User confirms using Blood Reformation on target?” A voice rang out in w.a.n.g Chong’s mind.
“Yes!” w.a.n.g Chong immediately said.
“Notice! Blood Reformation does not possess antidote properties and can only expel the part of the poison in target’s blood. Does user still confirm its use?” the Stone of Destiny asked again.
“Yes!” w.a.n.g Chong replied without hesitation.
Blood Reformation could completely transform the blood in a person’s body and was also able to repair any of the target’s inborn infirmities. w.a.n.g Chong had used it to treat Fifth Prince Li Heng.
But King Song was different. He didn’t have inborn infirmities, but a fierce poison ravaging every part of his body. Blood Reformation’s effects on this were very limited.
But w.a.n.g Chong decided to use it without hesitation.
A moment later, a ma.s.sive energy flooded out of the Stone of Destiny and into King Song’s body.
Before anyone could react, all the poisoned blood in King Song’s body, including that which was circulating through the marrow, was renewed.
In just a few moments, the poison had been driven out of King Song’s blood system.
Although Blood Reformation couldn’t cure poisons, its effects reached all the way into the marrow, precisely why w.a.n.g Chong had chosen to use it.
Zhangchou Jianqiong and the old butler trembled in shock. They possessed the strongest cultivations amongst this group, and they had immediately noticed the change in King Song’s body upon the use of Blood Reformation.
King Song’s body had been radiating an aura of death and decay, but at this moment, they sensed a sliver of life within him.
A moment later, there was a cry of alarm as Divine Physician Zheng sensed the change in King Song’s body.
His complexion had been ghastly pale and his lips purple, but after w.a.n.g Chong’s intervention, they were clearly beginning to improve.
Divine Physician Zheng was overcome with incredulity. Given his understanding of medicine, the scene that had taken place just now made no sense. After all, w.a.n.g Chong had simply grabbed King Song’s wrist.
w.a.n.g Chong was not done yet.
Although the blood system and marrow had been purified of poison, King Song’s condition was still not optimistic.
The blood system could not reach into the organs, muscles, or the head and nerves. The Stone of Destiny’s Blood Reformation was limited in its uses.
There was a golden flash of light and then the sound of grinding wheels as w.a.n.g Chong used the Supreme and Infinite Origin Immortal Art.
This supreme art was not merely powerful, it also possessed formidable healing abilities, exactly what was needed for the current King Song.
