Chapter 92: Are You Threatening Me
Lu Liangwei was startled. Was he planning to kill her?
As Lu Liangwei remembered how cruel this person was in the rumors, a sheen of sweat coated her back.
However, her fear was limited as she was confident that she had the upper hand. “Forgive me, Your Majesty. I’m good at guarding my mouth, and I never say anything that I shouldn’t say. Also, I promise that I’m the only person in the whole world who can cure you.”
Long Yang’s anger reached such a height that he let out a laugh instead. “Are you threatening me?”
Lu Liangwei lowered her head, thinking to herself, ‘Isn’t it obvious?’ However, she said, “I wouldn’t dare to.”
Long Yang stared at her for a while, and after a long moment, a cruel smile appeared on his mouth. “That had better be the case.”
A chill ran down Lu Liangwei’s spine.
It seemed that she had crossed the line with what she had said earlier.
Well, it was normal for a regular man to place importance in his manliness, let alone an emperor.
Although Long Yang was not a lustful man, it did not mean that he did not care about that part of him.
“Your Majesty, please believe me,” she lowered her eyes and said softly.
Long Yang did not speak, his slender fingers stroking the porcelain bottle in his hand. After a while, he said, “What does the medicine in this bottle do?”
Lu Liangwei immediately replied, “This medicine can temporarily suppress Frostbite and relieve pain. Your Majesty can carry it around in case of emergency.”
Long Yang paused for a bit. “Is that all it can do?”
Lu Liangwei struggled to stop herself from rolling her eyes.
Did he think that Frostbite was so easy to treat?
“It is difficult to purge Frostbite. Before that, I can only stabilize Your Majesty’s condition first.”
Long Yang stared at her thoughtfully. “Then how do you plan to detoxify me?”
Lu Liangwei explained, “To remove Frostbite, I will need an herb as a medicinal inducer. I plan to start searching for it in a few days.”
Hearing this, Long Yang frowned. “Is this herb uncommon?”
“It’s not uncommon, but extremely rare.” Lu Liangwei’s expression was rather grave.
She knew how to treat Long Yang’s poison, but if she could not find this particular herb, there was nothing she could achieve no matter how incredible her medical skills were.
Long Yang nodded, his expression unreadable. “You can sketch out what this herb looks like, and I will send someone to look for it. You don’t have to take the risk.”
Lu Liangwei shook her head. “If possible, I would rather not look for it myself, but this herb is not only rare but also difficult to recognize. It would be a hassle if someone gets it wrong.”
What she did not divulge was that this herb looked extremely similar to another lethally poisonous plant. If someone did not recognize it and touched it, they would immediately get lesions all over their body and die.
Long Yang shot her a glance. Although she did not explain it clearly, he understood that this herb was probably very unique.
“Since you’ve already made up your mind, I will not interfere. But where are you going?”
“Mount St. Hillock,” Lu Liangwei said slowly.
Long Yang narrowed his eyes. Mount St. Hillock?
Although he had never been there before, he had heard about the dangers of this place.
Mount St. Hillock was allegedly not only precipitous but also home to countless ferocious beasts. When people mentioned this mountain, their faces would immediately drain of color. It was clear how imposing of a place this Mount St. Hillock was.
Although Mount St. Hillock was rumored to be a magical mountain that housed all kinds of rare beasts and miraculous medicines, nobody had been able to retrieve even a single herb from it so far.
None of the people who traveled there ever survived.
Long Yang’s originally nonchalant expression became serious.
He furrowed his brow deeper, especially when he took in Lu Liangwei’s petite and frail figure.
“This matter requires further discussion. Without my permission, Lu Liangwei, you’re not allowed to go there of your own accord.” His voice was slightly deeper and did not allow room for argument.
Lu Liangwei was a little taken aback. “Why?”
“Mount St. Hillock is too dangerous. You’re a lady—going there is basically asking for death.” Long Yang’s tone was a bit impatient.
“No buts,” Long Yang interrupted her coldly.
