Stunning Poisonous Doctor Princess Chapter 505
Staying up all night, Lin Mengya sat beside the Long Tianyu’s bed as she carefully looked after him.
Zuo Qiuyu had picked two men and sent them over. Despite being males, they were intelligent and handled matters with maturity.
Wherever Lin Mengya was lacking, they would give her a hand and they took care to not be haphazard in everything they did.
“Your Highness, the morning had broken. Please take a rest.”
Yu An brought in a bowl of plain porridge and put it down in front of Lin Mengya as he spoke with a quiet voice.
It had been a tiring night for the princess. The dark circles around her eyes were even more prominent than that of Prince Yu.
“The sky has brightened. Oh yes, has Ling Ye and his companions returned? Is there any movement outside?”
Lin Mengya tried to stay awake as she took in some of the plain porridge.
However, the porridge was so tasteless that she eventually put it aside. All the while, she had kept her eyes on Long Tianyu.
“There’s no news from them yet, but those men who had been sent out last night had come back to report that the entire Zhu Family had been exterminated as you had expected.”
Her hand, that was wiping away Long Tianyu’s cold sweat, stopped abruptly in that instant. Thereafter, she simply replied that she heard their message and she ended their conversation there.
Long Tianyu could feel the warm damp towel dabbing on his face.
Agonizing from the feeling of discomfort that came in waves, Long Tianyu gradually woke from a fitful sleep.
The impeccable ceiling was the first thing he saw when he opened his eyes. The subtle fragrance diffusing from the person beside him was the reason he had hung on in hell until now.
He turned to slowly to look to the side and the beautiful face that appeared in his dreams, that was his moral support, was smiling warmly at him as she looked at him.
In that instant, Long Tianyu froze.
Was this a dream, or was this the reality?
“You’re awake. Are you hungry? Would you like to drink some water first? I’ve instructed them to cook some chicken porridge for you. Would you please eat some?”
Her gentle voice was filled with concern.
At that moment, Long Tianyu simply stared at the woman before his eyes in a daze. At the same time, it felt as if there was a great storm within him as his mind was filled with many complicated sentiments.
“Come, drink some water first.”
Lin Mengya personally brought a cup of water to Long Tianyu’s lips, which was cracking from dryness. However, he turned away all of a sudden.
“What’s wrong? Is it too hot? Let me blow on it to cool it. Tell me if you’re feeling any discomfort anywhere on your body. Perhaps I can help you ease the pain.”
She blew at the cup gently, but the man on the bed had given her a cold shoulder.
“You may go. I don’t wish to implicate you. Whether you want me to issue a certificate of divorce or you want to draw up some agreement, it’s up to you.”
Stunned, Lin Mengya looked up at the back of the figure who had turned away.
Gradually, a look of pain appeared in her eyes.
“I’m your wife; I’m not going anywhere.”
To Lin Mengya, she would never allow herself to say anything mushy in the past.
However, she did not feel the least bit uncomfortable saying these things aloud.
Those words had come out of her mouth so naturally, but it sent shivers in Long Tianyu.
“I’m spent… even if I return to Dajin, I’m a useless man. I don’t want to hold you up, for you still have many more great years ahead.
Suddenly, a soft hand gently, but firmly held on to his face and turned it around.
Those watery eyes filled with wit and intelligence were filled with his reflection at this moment.
“Don’t even think about throwing me out. I know that once I leave you, you will be like those people struggling for their lives. A man whom I esteem highly is not one who is afraid of death. If you are not even fearful of death, why won’t you have faith that you’ll be able to be rehabilitated from the drugs?”
Lin Mengya leaned onto Long Tianyu’s chest and looked into his eyes earnestly.
“This thing would throw me in between heaven and hell. I’m not confident that I’m able to go through this by myself.”
Long Tianyu was usually not bothered about torment.
However, the Immortal Powder was too potent.
When the effects of the drug came on, it would feel as if he was being bitten by thousands of ants. It felt extremely painful and unbearably itchy at the same time.
If he did not ingest more Immortal Powder, he would turn insane. He would even be controlled by his imagination. Eventually, he could be frightened to death or die of exhaustion.
Two hours before he was being brought onto the sedan with the help of others, he came across another man who was being tortured in the same way who died because he was scared to death by his own illusions.
It was so torturous that people rather die than to live.
Finally, they were enslaved by the Immortal Powder. Their willpower was destroyed and they became zombies.
If he was going to end up this way one day, he would rather confront these enemies of his while he still had a clear mind. If he was to die anyway, he would die in a glorious way.
“I know, I totally understand, but think about how this drug had been so destructive. You’re not the first to fall victim to it, nor will you be the last. Do you still remember what I told you about the music score for the green stringed instrument?”
Lin Mengya leaned close to Long Tianyu as she spoke.
“In fact, this drug had been mentioned in the music score for the green stringed instrument already. It also mentioned the corresponding antidote for this drug. As long as we follow the instructions in the music score for the green stringed instrument, you will definitely recover.”
All of a sudden, a ray of hope appeared in Long Tianyu’s eyes.
If he could truly break free from the control of the Immortal Powder, there was hope yet.
“Believe me, I will definitely cure you. However, for a miracle to happen, the most important thing is that you work hard at it. If you give up easily, you are obviously being defeated by the Immortal Powder. In that case, no matter how effective the prescription is, it would be of no use.”
Lin Mengya continued leaning close to Long Tianyu’s ears as she whispered words of encouragement to him.
In response, Long Tianyu gently put both his arms around Lin Mengya’s slender figure.
An embrace they missed for such a long time made Lin Mengya’s body tremble slightly.
She felt a little sore in her nose. She lifted her head to his eyes, which were gradually reinvigorated, and at that moment, she felt that whatever she did was needful.
“It must have been hard on you.”
As Long Tianyu spoke with an apologetic tone, he fondled with her soft, smooth dark hair.
It seemed that she was always dashing around busily ever since she married him.
Even when she fell sick or got injured, she was always his most important moral support at the critical moments.
He tightened his arms around her. To him, all the luck he had in his entire life was exhausted in the matter of marrying her.
“You owe everything to me. When you fully recover, you’ll have to repay everything.”
Lin Mengya spoke with a strong nasal voice, but she still managed to hold back her tears.
Punching Long Tianyu gently, she could feel his protruding bones and it broke her heart.
“Right, I’ll repay you a hundred, or even a thousand times.”
Long Tianyu was touched beyond words.
However, in the next instant, the expression on his face changed and he pushed Lin Mengya away from him.
Locking his brows into a frown, he said with an urgent voice, “Quick, bind my hands and feet quickly!”
Lin Mengya could see the color drain from Long Tianyu’s face and there were beads of perspiration appearing on his forehead. Lin Mengya immediately sensed that the effect of the drug in Long Tianyu was coming on.
“Men, bring on the ropes you’ve prepared from last night, but be careful to bind him up just enough to keep him bound. Don’t make it overly tight!”
Panicking, Lin Mengya called for men to enter. She had specially instructed a maid in the mansion who knew how to sew to make a special rope for Long Tianyu.
The rope that was made of flax was two fingers thick but was extremely tough. Even if it were used to bind a hundred kilogram wild boar, it would not be able to break the rope.
It was even lined with a layer of cotton around where it bound the wrists and ankles.
In this way, Long Tianyu would not get injured badly if he struggled violently.
“Your Highness, we’ve bound up the prince. It’ll be better for you to leave the room. It’s sufficient that we stay here to watch him.”
Yu An knew that the princess’s heart was hurting badly by now.
Long Tianyu’s mouth was gagged by a piece of soft and clean cloth, which was soaked with the liquid medicine Lin Mengya made especially for him.
The gag was to elevate Long Tianyu’s pain as well as to keep his teeth from being damaged when he bit down hard.
Perhaps it was because of the glimpse of hope or because of the effect of the medicine prepared by Lin Mengya, Long Tianyu’s eyes remained clear although he was drifting in and out of illusion and was struggling in pain.
Seeing how Long Tianyu’s entire body shook and how he suddenly started rolling around once the effect of the drug came on, how she wished she could suffer the pain on his behalf.
“Please take good care of him. Remember to change the gag every hour and be very careful not to injure him.”
Lin Mengya continued giving instructions and reminders even as she walked out of the room.
When the effects of the drug came on, one might even lose control of his bowels.
Surely Lin Mengya would not be put off, but Long Tianyu would not want her to witness such a scene.
Sitting outside of the door, Lin Mengya listened to the horrid cries from inside the room and it was heart-wrenching.
At that moment, Zuo Qiuyu came before Lin Mengya with Chang Tianhua’s medicine.
“How is everything? Is he able to overcome it?”
Standing before Lin Mengya, Zuo Qiuyu massaged her shoulders. Lifting her wide sleeves, he applied some alcohol onto her slender arms and massaged along them with just the right amount of force.
“Yes, he’s surely able to. I’m too. Please begin.”
Lin Mengya glanced at the red bottle containing the ointment.
Zuo Qiuyu seemed to want to say something but stopped himself. Eventually, he simply shook his head.
Gently, he poured some scarlet Fiery Green Jade Ointment onto her hideous looking wound.
This was the most serious part of her wound, so the effect of the ointment was to start right here.
“Please bear with it a little.”
Zuo Qiuyu gazed at Lin Mengya with a severe expression on his face. Thereafter, he pressed down on the medicinal patch that was bloodred in color, looking like real blood.
He then evened out the ointment around her shoulder.
At first, she did not feel any sensation.
However, as Quo Qiuyu applied more force, Lin Mengya’s right arm, which had been numb, suddenly began to feel waves of warmth.
However, before she could rejoice, the warm sensation intensified and it became hotter and hotter.
Eventually, it felt as if her arms had been set on fire and being roasted.
Lin Mengya could no longer hold back but started to groan. The effect of this ointment was indeed very aggressive. Although she had lost sensation on that arm for so long, it felt as if it was burning at this moment.
