Chapter 109 – The Plight of the Master
Mu Lianping was placed on the bed by Xu Yuanqing. Bai Yunfei looked at Mu Lianping, who was covered in red, and couldn’t help but frown.
Mu Lianping’s eyes were bloodshot, his hands and feet were chained up, and the expression on his face was so ferocious that he didn’t look like a human being, but rather like a beast.
Bai Shiyuan looked at Xu Yuanqing and asked in confusion, “Daoist Master Xu, what happened to Young Master Mu?”
“His practice has gone wrong,” Xu Yuanqing said.
“Will Young Master Mu always be like this?” Bai Shiyuan asked cautiously.
Xu Yuanqing touched Mu Lianping’s hot forehead full of worry and said, “It will be like this when it’s onset.”
“Daoist Master Xu, I wonder if there is any way to treat this illness of young Mu, and if there is anything I can do to help.”
Bai Shiyuan has been friends with Xu Yuanqing for many years and knows that Xu Yuanqing has only one daughter, who is treated like a jewel in the palm of his hand. This daughter married into a mysterious ancient martial family and died a few years ago, leaving only a grandson to Xu Yuanqing, whose status in Xu Yuanqing’s heart can be imagined.
“I’m here to ask you for help this time.” Xu Yuanqing took out a list and said, “Old Bai, I won’t be polite to you. The medicinal materials on this need to be found as soon as possible.”
Bai Shiyuan nodded quickly and said, “Okay, I’ll do it right away.”
“Grandpa Xu, I have a healing talisman. I don’t know if it will help with Young Master Mu’s illness?” Bai Yunfei said.
“Healing Talisman? Show me.”
Bai Yunfei hurriedly took the talismans out. Ye Fan was very generous, when Bai Yunfei came to ask for a healing talisman, Ye Fan gave Bai Yunfei ten all at once. Just in case, Bai Yunfei has been carrying the rest of the healing talisman with her.
“This talisman’s aura is very strong!”
Bai Yunfei couldn’t help but say: “I personally saw this talisman heal a person, and it’s very effective.” A person suffering from madness.
“Then try it,” Xu Yuanqing said.
“Break.” Bai Yunfei smashed a dispelling talisman on Mu Lianping, who gave Bai Yunfei a fierce glare and showed a mouthful of sharp teeth toward Bai Yunfei, who was scared into a cold sweat.
Seeing that the Fulu didn’t work, Bai Yunfei immediately panicked, “How come it didn’t work, obviously before…”
Xu Yuanqing sighed and said with a gloomy expression: “Maybe it’s only for diseases, moreover, Ping is not sick.”
“I also have a talisman, we can try it!” Bai Yunjin suddenly thought of something.
“What talisman?” Xu Yuanqing asked.
“Tranquility talisman, it can make people sleep,” Bai Yunjin said quickly.
This tranquility talisman was given to Bai Yunxi when Ye Fan came last time to prevent the old man from going crazy again. Bai Yunxi didn’t want it and gave it to him.
The last time Ye Fan posted a talisman on the head of the old man, the old man almost scared the family all day and night.
“The tranquility talisman, we can try that,” Xu Yuanqing said.
Bai Yunjin put the talisman on Mu Lianping’s forehead. Mu Lianping soon became quiet, and the blood in his eyes gradually faded.
Seeing Mu Lianping falling asleep, Xu Yuanqing let out a long sigh of relief.
“Daoist Master Xu, Young Master Mu is all right.”
Xu Yuanqing patted Mu Lianping’s head and said, “Fell asleep, he hasn’t slept for a long time.” Xu Yuanqing secretly said: Although this tranquility talisman is somewhat effective, it only makes Mu Lianping fall asleep, and when Mu Lianping wakes up, the situation will be the same as before again.
Bai Shiyuan looked at Xu Yuanqing a little puzzled, and said, “Daoist Master Xu, your grandson, what is going on?”
Xu Yuanqing shook his head, let out a long sigh, and said, “Injustice!”
Bai Shiyuan saw that Xu Yuanqing did not want to say more, so he did not pursue the question.

“Grandpa, are you looking for me?” Jiang Shuya walked into the house and asked.
Jiang Chengyi nodded and said, “Yes, Xu Yuanqing has arrived at Bai’s house. His grandson has an accident and needs a lot of medicinal herbs to save his life!”
Jiang Shuya said in surprise, “That Daoist Master Xu?” Xu Yuanqing’s name is very big, Jiang Shuya had heard of it when she was a child.
Jiang Chengyi nodded and said, “Yes, that Daoist Xu has extraordinary means. Back then, it was only with his help that Old Master Bai was able to tide over the difficulties and develop the Bai family to this point. Now he has a request. If we can help, maybe we can make this Daoist Master Xu owe us a favor.”
“Need medicinal herbs? When it comes to medicine, the strength of our Jiang family is far greater than that of the Bai family. Maybe this time is an opportunity.”
Jiang Chengyi nodded and said, “Well, this time, Daoist Master Xu needs some more herbs, some medicine the Bai family can’t get out. That guy Bai Shiyuan has gathered a lot of people to think of a way, we should also go early, don’t delay.”
When Bai Yunxi returned, quite a few big shots had already gathered in their Bai residence.
When Bai Yunjin saw Bai Yunxi bring Ye Fan over, he couldn’t help but be a little surprised.
“Yunxi, why did you bring him here?” Bai Yunjin tightened his brow and said.
Bai Yunxi frowned and said, “Ye Fan said he wanted to meet a highly skilled Daoist.”
Bai Yunjin: “……”
“Why are there so many people?” Bai Yunxi asked.
Bai Yunjin lowered his voice and said, “They are all here to help. Daoist Master Xu’s grandson has an accident and needs a lot of precious medicinal herbs to make an antidote. Grandpa asked some old friends to help. As a result, the news leaked and a lot of people came.”
Xu Yuanqing’s medical skills have been well-known in the circle of big figures in the capital for a long time. Many big figures have been treated by Xu Yuanqing. This time, Xu Yuanqing was in need, and many people came. Some came to repay their kindness, and some wanted to be familiar with Xu Yuanqing.
“Your grandfather seems to give that Daoist Master Xu a lot of face!” Ye Fan said.
Bai Yunjin nodded and said, “That’s natural. Daoist Master Xu saved my grandfather’s life, and it is thanks to Daoist Master Xu that our Bai family is what it is today.”
“Your grandfather is really strange, taking a broom to sweep a high level person like me out the door and treating a half-wit with such respect, he is really old and confused,” Ye Fan shook his head and said.
Bai Yunxi looked at Ye Fan in displeasure and said, “When you came, what did you promise?”
Ye Fan covered his mouth and said, “I’ll shut up.”
Bai Yunjin: “…”
“Yunxi, what took you so long to come back?” Bai Yunfei walked over and pulled Bai Yunxi away.
“Second sister doesn’t say hello to me, she takes me as air!” Ye Fan said.
Bai Yunjin smiled reluctantly and said, “She probably didn’t see you…”
Ye Fan: “How could she not see me, I’m so big…”
Bai Yunjin: “…”
Ye Fan touched Bai Yunjin’s arm with his elbow and said, “Your grandfather respects this Daoist Master Xu so much, so does he really listen to this Daoist Master Xu?”
Bai Yunjin looked at Ye Fan strangely, and said, “Why are you asking this?”
Ye Fan smiled and said, “I just ask casually!”
“Of course, my grandfather will naturally consider Daoist Master Xu’s opinion,” Bai Yunjin said sincerely.
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Is that so?”
Ye Fan looked at Xu Yuanqing and said, “This Daoist Master Xu is really popular! There are so many stupid and rich local tyrants around him.” He himself is also an expert, why doesn’t he have this kind of treatment?
Bai Yunxi left for a while, and when he came back, he tried to find Ye Fan, but he couldn’t find him anymore.
“Brother, have you seen Ye Fan?” Bai Yunxi asked.
Bai Yunjin frowned and said, “He was still here just now?”
Bai Yunxi took a deep breath and said, “I don’t know where he ran off to, it’s better if this guy doesn’t get into trouble!”
Ye Fan walked into Mu Lianping’s room and knocked Mu Lianping’s nurse unconscious.
“Who are you? What are you doing here?” Mu Lianping looked at Ye Fan, full of alertness.
Ye Fan looked at Mu Lianping, blinked, and said, “Don’t be so nervous! I just have something that I want to ask your grandfather for help, so I came over to see you.”
Mu Lianping narrowed his eyes and said coldly, “You plan to threaten my grandfather with me?”
Ye Fan shook his head and said, “Threat? That will just make things awkward. It’s business, I’ll cure you, and your grandfather will do me a favor.”
Mu Lianping looked at Ye Fan and asked, “Can you cure me? Do you know what my condition is?”
Ye Fan nodded seriously and said, “You have eaten a fruit that you shouldn’t eat, and you can’t bear the medicinal power. Spirit flame fruit is a good thing. Where did you find it? What a waste!” Spirit flame fruit is a kind of spiritual fruit. For cultivators with fire spiritual roots, there are great benefits, but if ordinary people eat it, if the effect is light, they will be paralized, if worse, they will die.
A bit of sadness flashed in Mu Lianping’s eyes, and then a bit of coldness flashed across Mu Lianping’s face. “Who are you and how do you know this?”
The Mu family from Mu Lianping is a hidden family. There is a spirit flame fruit tree in the family which grows a kind of spirit flame fruit. People who practice ancient martial arts in the Mu family have two kinds of fates if they take this fruit. One is to ascend to the sky in one step, and their ancient martial arts greatly improved; the other is to get their meridians destroyed and become invalid.
The Spirit Flame Fruit Tree is the top secret of the Mu family, and few outsiders know about it.
Although the risk of taking the spirit flame fruit is extremely high, the people of the Mu family are still willing to take risks. The spirit flame fruit is scarce, even if you want to take it, it is not always possible to get a turn.
Ye Fan shrugged and said, “I see, your grandfather is discussing with others and wants to use medicine to control your condition, but with your grandfather’s level, I’m afraid he can’t save you.”
“You are talking nonsense!” Mu Lianping said coldly.
Mu Lianping frowned, he always had respect for his grandfather.
Mu Lianping’s aptitude is average. Although he has practiced very hard and his strength is only average among his peers in the Mu family, the patriarch valued him very much, just because of Xu Yuanqing’s face. Xu Yuanqing has several prescriptions in his hand, which are of great benefit to the Mu family’s cultivation of ancient martial arts.
Mu Lianping and Ye Fan were talking, and the power of flames raged. Mu Lianping’s bronze skin gradually turned crimson, and his face showed a bit of pain.
“Leave quickly and take the nurse with you. When I get sick, I can’t help hurting people. It would be bad if I accidentally killed you.” Mu Lianping persuaded while suppressing the pain.
Ye Fan pursed his lips and said, “You can really dream, just you, hurt me?”
Ye Fan stretched out his hand and touched Mu Lianping’s eyebrows, a flame force was drawn out by Ye Fan and flowed into Ye Fan’s body.
The power of the flame fruit in Mu Lianping’s body was a poison to him, but to Ye Fan, it was a great tonic to improve his cultivation.
“Feeling better? I extracted a part of the spiritual power of the spirit flame fruit from your body. This part of the medicinal power will no longer damage your body, and you will not go mad so often. Your grandfather, can he do it?” Ye Fan asked arrogantly.
Just as Mu Lianping was about to speak, the door was pushed open, and Bai Yunxi stood at the door angrily.
