Venerated Venomous Consort Chapter 1961
Gu Xijiu’s extraordinary physical condition enabled her to survive the bite, as long as she was able to consume the cure in time. The moment when she was bitten, she immediately reached into her storage bag to look for the cure.
What she did not expect was the strength of the poison. It was unusually venomous, making her suffer unbearable pain.
The pain greatly affected her nervous system. Immediately, the pain was spread from her finger to her entire body. Her active fingers started to tremble with a feeling of numbness; her sense of touch was greatly reduced. For a while, she could not find the bottle of medicine that she carried in her storage space.
Anxiety took over. The more anxious she was, the quicker the poison spread. The pain was starting to get beyond her level of endurance. Slowly, she was about to suffer from blackouts.
Dazzled, she could feel an arm around her when she collapsed. Swiftly, he took off her mask.
Gu Xijiu was surprised, but she was unable to react. A pill was then stuffed into her mouth. “Swallow it,” he demanded.
The pill tasted very bitter and fishy. Gu Xijiu was determined to swallow it, but she could not push it down her throat. She tried hard, but the pill still remained on her tongue.
“I thought you were not concerned about the poison from the snakes.” She could hear Shen Nianmo blabbering in a hoarse voice. Soon, she could feel something warm and supple against her soft lips. Also, her tightly clenched teeth were pushed open. His tongue then entered her mouth to help her push the pill down her throat.
She could feel his cold skin on her neck. He gently caressed her neck to help her swallow the pill. Although she had taken the pill, the effect would not be immediate. Gu Xijiu was in such great pain that she could barely stand. He lay her down on the floor with her head on his lap.
Gu Xijiu was still consciousness at the time. She knew that someone was holding her finger and forcing the toxic blood out from her body. She was impressed by his great tact in dealing with a snake-bitten wound.
She knew that it was Shen Nianmo who was taking care of her at the moment. The child did not maltreat an injured person. Instead, he chose to save her. Presumably, he did not bear a grudge or revolt against her.
Gu Xijiu was thankful for his help. Suddenly, she could tell that he was putting her wounded finger in his mouth. She was very surprised. Was he going to suck the toxic blood out of the wound? The venom was unusually potent; if he were not careful, he could infect himself as well.
Intuitively, she tried to pull her finger out. “No way,” she weakly said.
Her strength was certainly incomparable to his at the moment. Before she could get her finger out of his mouth, he was already grabbing her wrist. “Be still. Don’t move,” Shen Nianmo softly demanded.
Gu Xijiu was unable to struggle. Meanwhile, she also felt that he sounded as though he was comforting a child. Shen Nianmo continued to suck the toxic blood from the wound. She could feel her finger in his mouth.
Initially, her aching finger was numb, dulling her sense of touch. As the toxic blood continued to exit her body, she could feel her finger slowly being more responsive. When he sucked at her finger, the sensation was beyond her expression. She felt a little weak, as the delightful sensation on her finger slowly took over her mind.
She tried to suppress the odd feelings while the pill she consumed earlier started to take effect. The pain was greatly reduced, and so was the numbness. Soon, her agility returned. Quickly, she reached into her storage bag to look for the medicine.
Her medicine was made specifically to counter the venom, so it would be more effective.
“Don’t move!” He caught her at the wrist again.
“I want to take the medicine.”
“I will do it for you.” He reached out into her bag and asked, “Which one?”
