Venerated Venomous Consort Chapter 1962
The storage bag was located on the upper part of her chest. It was not a sensitive part of her body, but he still had to expose that particular part of her clothes to reach into the bag. Her breasts were partly exposed, too.
Gu Xijiu had an attractive figure; her body was particularly curvy, with breasts that swelled out perfectly. Even with her breasts only partly exposed, the view alone was arousing.
Shen Nianmo wanted to take the medicine for her, so his hand would unavoidably touch the upper part of her chest. Her skin was soft and supple. He could feel the warmth radiating off it. His hand was frozen momentarily when he made contact with her skin, but he did not pull away. Instead, he reached out into her storage bag. “Which bottle?”
There were too many bottles in the space. Although Shen Nianmo was knowledgeable in medicine, he could not differentiate which was which in a short time.
“The red jade… The red and blue jade bottles.”
He finally found the bottle! Immediately, he fixed her clothes for her. The medicine was for oral administration and external use. After the application, Gu Xijiu was more relieved. She suffered less pain and no longer felt like she was going to blackout. She managed to sit, though with difficulty, and mediate.
The venom of the snake would specifically attack her nervous system while the spread of the poison in her body was too quick. Although Shen Nianmo had sucked and extracted most of the poison out of her body, some still lingered in her blood.
A few moments later, a drop of dark purple venom could be seen exiting her body through her fingertips. She opened her eyes, and the first thing she saw was her usual white and fair finger. The remaining poison was gone.
Gu Xijiu heaved a sigh of relief. Then, she turned and fixed her eyes on Shen Nianmo. He was clearing the bodies of the remaining snakes. The way he handled the snakes was very violent, considering that all of them were dead.
Gu Xijiu was shocked. She wanted to collect the snakes for medical use. Most of the time, the alchemy would require the venom of the snakes. She could only extract their venoms when they were alive. Hence, their dead bodies would no longer be useful. It was such a waste.
In a blink of an eye, she immediately noticed that there was still a snake wriggling slowly not too far away from Shen Nianmo. It was still alive.
Before Shen Nianmo could do anything to it, Gu Xijiu took a quick leap forward. “Keep the snake! I need it alive!”
She had just recovered from the injury, so she was definitely slower paced than Shen Nianmo. She failed to reach the snake before the kid. With the snake in his hand, Shen Nianmo then retreated to keep a distance away from her.
At first, the snake looked somewhat distorted under his tight grip. With a strong flick, the snake immediately softened into a line. Apparently, the snake was dead.
“I told you that I needed it alive,” Gu Xijiu complained.
Shen Nianmo was unimpressed. “Why should I listen to you?”
Gu Xijiu did not say anything more.
She should not mind it, for he had saved her life. She did not want to argue with him over an irrelevant matter. She swept her eyes across the snakes that were unfortunately killed by Shen Nianmo. Their bodies were tidily arranged into a circle according to their patterns and types.
Needless to say, it was Shen Nianmo who had done it. The child must have obsessive-compulsive disorder about tidiness.
None of the snakes was the one that she was looking for. They had to keep looking. Gu Xijiu disregarded the bodies of the snakes and decided to move on. “We have to keep looking. The Cherry Blossom Snake is not here. By the way, I have to tell you this in advance. We have to keep the snake alive. It will be useless once dead; we will not be able to save the lives of your junior apprentices.”
Shen Nianmo had a perplexed look on his face. He thought that the snake bodies would antagonize her, but she did not seem to take the matter very personally. Obviously, he was only a child to her, so she did not want to lower herself to the level of a child. He clenched his fists at the thought. Nonetheless, he continued to follow her steps.
“I have saved your life,” Shen Nianmo finally commented.
“Yes, I now owe you a favor. Do you still want me to call you as my senior apprentice?” Gu Xijiu thought about the condition that he had previously offered.
“It is unnecessary,” Shen Nianmo answered coldly. Suddenly, he raised her arm to get her attention on his wrist. A bracelet slowly revealed itself. “Take this bracelet off me,” Shen Nianmo demanded. He needed her to get it done.
