1610 Betrayal 8

    After Murong Xiao had said these words, a gentle giggle could suddenly be heard.

    Murong Xiao's ears picked up on the giggle. He narrowed his eyes as a cold light flashed across his gaze.

    "Who are you and how dare you laugh at me?"

    Long Xin hurriedly ran in front of Murong Xiao when he heard this and laughed in a flattering manner as he said, "Lord Murong, this fellow is the person who had cured the Clan Leader of his poison. She's a physician."

    Long Xin then paused before adding, "But she's not a Pill Master!"

    To him, a Pill Master would have cured the poison using a single pill while this woman had only used silver needles to treat the Clan Leader! It was obvious that she was only a talented physician and was still a far way from becoming a Pill Master.

    Murong Xiao nodded, hinting that he had understood, "You had managed to cure my poison. This proves that your medical skills are rather substantial. Do you have any interest in pledging loyalty to me? I can teach you Pill Refinement."

    Gu Ruoyun curled the corners of her lips, "Teach me? I'm afraid you don't have that privilege!"

    Incomparable savagery!

    This was Murong Xiao's first impression of Gu Ruoyun. However, he was not angered by Gu Ruoyun's savagery and felt a small sense of admiration instead.

    "When you serve me, you will know if I have that power!"

    "Alright." Gu Ruoyun laughed. "Then let me ask you this, do you know what ails the bodies of the Dragon Clan which has resulted in their reproduction difficulties?"

    Murong Xiao's features froze.

    The Dragon Clan has had difficulty in reproduction since ancient times. How would he know what really ails them?

    Hence, he fell silent for a moment before he replied, "This is a curse!"

    "A curse?"

    "That's right, it's indeed a curse! The Dragon Clan has been inflicted by a curse many years ago which has caused their reproductive difficulties! Otherwise, why should the entire Dragon Clan have this problem? This proves that it was not only caused by a single factor! If you say that this was caused by the North Sea, that's not possible. They've already been afflicted by this illness before they moved to the North Sea."

    Gu Ruoyun's smile deepened, "A curse? Do you believe in things like curses? Are you someone who still believes that curses really exist?"

    Murong Xiao's expression has turned slightly ugly, "They have indeed been cursed and I have a pill that can break the curse. Once this curse has been broken, we can solve this problem."

    "Are you certain that the pill you're going to give to them later is a pill that can break the curse?" Gu Ruoyun raised her brows. "Why don't you swallow this pill first?"

    "Woman, what are you getting at!" Murong Xiao's expression darkened. "The pill that I will give them is indeed a pill that can break the curse! However, only those who have been cursed can consume this pill. I'm not suffering from a curse. If I swallow this pill, it will harm my body."

    "Really?"

    Gu Ruoyun looked at Long Xin and replied with a forced smile, "Then let Elder Long Xin try it. Let's see if his curse really can be broken."

    Gasp!

    Long Xin's countenance has become very pale as he stared at Murong Xiao in horror.

    He had believed in Murong Xian at the beginning but as he listened to the conversation between Gu Ruoyun and Murong Xian, his heart began to feel a little bit unsure. Under these uncertain circumstances, how could he have the courage to try this pill?

    Besides, he had decided to let the other Dragon Clan citizens try the pill first and see whether there would be any consequences after taking the pill. Who would have thought that Gu Ruoyun would throw this problem to him?
