“Huh! What an aromatic smell!”
Miao Fengling was attracted by the fragrance of the elixir and walked towards the place where the scent was emitted.
However, what she didn’t know was that there were several other poisonous insects that were also attracted by the smell of the elixir.
“It smells so good, this is it.”
Soon, she walked to the place where the vent was located, which had already been treated by Ye Luo, who had covered the vent with a large stone and then cut some holes in the side of the stone, looking like a strange stone with holes naturally, so as not to attract attention and not to leak water when it rained, and this time, it was also a coincidence that Miao Fengling happened to appear near this stone.
“Huh! It’s actually coming from this stone.”
Miao Fengling was a little curious and pushed herself up to the stone, only for a poisonous insect to bite her on the thigh.
A sharp pain made her scream, followed by a slap on her thigh with her hand, and only then did she realize that it was actually a very long, fiery red centipede.
“There’s …… poison …….”
She said two words and then was ready to call for help, only to find that the damn thing was so toxic that she didn’t know anything when her eyes went black.
When she woke up, she found herself still lying on the ground, however, there was an extremely handsome looking boy in front of her, and this boy was looking at her almost close to her face.
Although Miao Fengling was only fifteen years old and did not know much about men and women, it was the time of budding youth, so she immediately blushed.
“You’re awake, that’s good, I thought the ‘Antidote Pill’ hadn’t worked.”
Seeing the girl wake up, Ye Lu also let out a sigh of relief.
He had just finished refining the pills and stopped by to see if anyone had found this vent, only to see Miao Fengling collapsed here.
The centipede was really poisonous, so Ye Lu gave her three “antidotes” in quick succession before she woke up, but looking at the situation, it was still difficult for her to move immediately.
“I can’t feed her any more antidotes.”
Ye Luo muttered to himself with a bit of a headache.
It was a medicine that was poisonous in three parts, and the antidote pill was actually something that could not be taken more than once, so now they could only wait for the girl to gradually get better.
“Thank you …… thank you …… big brother ……”
Miao Fengling said in a brittle voice, following which she tried to stand up, but ended up unsuccessfully.
“I guess you have to rest for a while longer, why don’t I carry you down the mountain.”
Ye Lu looked at Miao Fengling and said.
As a result, Miao Fengling immediately blushed as she shook her head and said.
“No, I still have a task to do, Master asked me to find eighteen kinds of medicinal herbs on this mountain and tell the medicinal properties, today is the last day and I am still seven kinds short of finding them.”
Looking at Miao Fengling’s pitiful look, Ye Lu thought for a moment and said.
“That’s fine, but it’s going to be dark soon, this way, I’ll help you find them, then I’ll tell you the medicinal properties, you can rest here, I guess you’ll be almost ready to move when I find them.”
Hearing that Ye Lu was going to help her find herbs, Miao Fengling immediately asked in amazement.
“You know about herbs, do you study medicine?”
Ye Lu smiled and said.
“I’m a student of ‘Yanjing University of Chinese Medicine’, I studied Chinese medicine, of course I’m most familiar with these herbs.”
In fact, Ye Luo was talking nonsense, his identity was true, but of course he still had to rely on his glasses to find Chinese herbs, anyway, glasses were a know-it-all, check around, surely he could know which were the Chinese herbs and what they did.
After listening to Ye Lu, Miao Fengling nodded her head, but to be honest, she didn’t really believe it, because her father had once said that the standard of these secular doctors was actually very poor, compared to the “Medicine League”, it was a world of difference, not to mention that Ye Lu was just an ordinary student.
However, to her surprise, Ye Lu soon brought a lot of medicinal herbs and said with a smile.
“There is one more than you planned, because I just happened to see it so I picked it back together, this is ‘trident bitter’, can clear heat and detoxify, treat sore throat, rheumatism and bone pain, this is ‘sea tung bark’ can open meridians and kill insects, this is ‘ghost needle grass’, detoxify and stop diarrhea, this is ‘nine heart lotus’ ……”
Ye Luo said like a family treasure, many of the herbs Miao Fengling had never even heard of, of course, Ye Luo had actually never heard of any of them, he read them all off his glasses.
“Do you remember all of them?”
Ye Luo said as he looked at the little girl.
As a result, Miao Fengling had an amazing memory and she nodded and said.
“I remembered it all, you are so good, let me be your teacher, how about you teach me?”
This was certainly not good, Ye Lu had a lot of things to do, however, Miao Fengling immediately unleashed the unique advantage of a little girl and began to stalk and pamper her, there was no choice, Ye Lu had to leave her the micro signal.
“Alright, alright, I’ll send you down the mountain, however, I still have to study, I may not have much time to teach you.”
Ye Luo said as he helped Miao Fengling up.
“Heehee, don’t worry Master, I’m studying with another Master now, I’ll come back to you when I don’t understand something or have more questions, you just do what you did just now and ‘brush up’ and help me out, okay?”
Taking her, Ye Luo had no choice but to agree to her, and the little girl immediately wanted to jump up happily, but as her body had not recovered, she ended up falling into Ye Luo’s arms and blushing.
Ye Lu smiled bitterly and sent Miao Fengling to the bottom of the hill, she had almost recovered, so she took a taxi and went back on her own.
Ye Luo, on the other hand, went back to the dormitory.
“Did you still have a good day off?”
After entering, Ye Lu looked at Nie Yibiao and asked.
Nie Yibiao made an “OK” gesture and said.
“Oh, it’s a piece of cake.”
Ye Lu said with a smile.
“Then why don’t you take another day off for me tomorrow?”
Nie Yibiao agreed without raising his head while playing the game, but then he said.
“By the way, Ye Lu, it seems like there’s a girl in class who’s inquiring about you, saying that she wants to pick you up and buy you off.”
Nie Yibiao suddenly thought of something then turned his head to look at Ye Lu and said.
“That girl is not bad looking and her family is so rich.”
Ye Lu casually waved his hand, he had no interest in this at the moment.
In the evening, the rest of the dormitory went to the playground to play songs, while Ye Lu sat on his bed, using his newly made elixir “Regeneration Pill” to treat his wounds, while summing up his experience of being battered by Doku Ao today.
He found that part of the problem was his moves, such as how to react if his opponent attacked like this, which he was unfamiliar with, but the bigger problem was his own combat awareness, too little combat experience, which made him unable to react quickly and first, and by the time you thought of a good response, it was already too late.
“I must cheer up tomorrow, at least this simple attack should be able to be blocked.”
Ye Lu muttered silently.
And at the Miao family, Lin Ruyue was surprised to see that Miao Fengling had really found eighteen kinds of medicinal herbs, and there were many that even she had only heard of but had never seen much.
“Fengling, your father didn’t help you, did he? If I find out that your father helped you cheat, your father will be out of luck.”
Lin Ruyue said as she looked into Miao Fengling’s eyes.
Miao Fengling immediately swore that her dad definitely didn’t help.
However, Lin Ruyue still felt that there was something strange in this matter.
At this moment, Miao Fengling’s father was actually drinking with Ye Lu’s department head, Zhu Qihuang. The two students of the “Pill Alliance” were kind of difficult brothers and sisters, and now it was military training time, and Zhu Qihuang had nothing to do, so they just drank together to vent their frustrations.
“When do you think we’ll meet someone who will join the ‘Pill Alliance’?”
Zhu Qi Huang said somewhat drunkenly.
Miao Fengling’s father, on the other hand, said with a bitter smile.
“In another life!”
After saying that, both of them laughed.
The next day, Ye Lu arrived at the “Iron Blood Martial School” again early in the morning.
“Hey! You’re here so early and everything’s fine?”
The first person to come back the day after being beaten by her grandfather was Ye Lu, and he looked alive and well, as if he was really fine.
“You’re so hardy!”
Qian Sha couldn’t help but pick a thumb up and said.
Ye Luo had to smile bitterly and followed her in, the injury was easy to heal, but it really hurt when you got beaten up!
Seeing that all the wounds on Ye Lu’s body were almost gone after he took off his clothes, Dokgo Ao also showed a lost expression for the first time, it was also the first time he met someone who was so hardy.
“Master, I’m going to fight all day today.”
With the “Regeneration Pill” on him anyway, Ye Lu was emboldened to say.
“Good, not bad, your hardy look is quite like the style of my youth.”
Dokgo Ao looked at Ye Lu and said majestically, but his heart was actually full of suspicion.
Just like that, very quickly, five days passed.
On that night, Nie Yibiao looked at Ye Lu with a sad face and said.
“Ye Lu, Brother Biao really can’t cover you this time, I can’t make up a reasonable reason to help you take leave anymore, the instructor is already angry, if I make it up again, you and I might both die with the world.”
There was no choice, Ye Lu had to nod and say.
“OK, I’ll trouble Brother Biao, I’ll go to military training tomorrow.”
The military training was only two weeks in total, so he couldn’t skip a day.
However, what Ye Luo didn’t know was that at this moment in Dokgo Ao’s house, Dokgo Ao and Dokgo Qian Sha, the two grandfathers and grandsons, were plotting to steal Ye Luo’s elixir.
“Qian Sha, tomorrow while we are training, you steal a few of those pills he uses and give them to me, I really want to see what he uses, even the ‘Medicine League’ doesn’t have such a good medicine for bruises, right?”
Dokgo Chisha then beamed.
“Why make me a thief, can’t you just ask him for it directly?”
As a result, Dokgo Ao said with a glare.
“As a master, I’m so old, if I don’t even know what kind of pills my disciple is taking, wouldn’t I lose face, so grandpa can’t do anything, so I’ll rely on my precious granddaughter.”
Followed by Dokgo Ao then said with a smile.
“If it’s a new medicine from the ‘Medicine League’ and it’s not expensive, let’s buy a batch of it, and when it’s time to enroll again, when the disciples are injured, we’ll use this medicine to treat them, and it’s estimated that people will come to our martial school.”
In fact, she knew very well that it was not a question of whether to cure or not, the root cause of the failure to recruit students was the problem of teaching methods, and with this teaching mode of Grandpa, it would be useless to get the immortal pills.
However, she didn’t want to spoil Dokgo Ao’s fun, her grandfather was too old and had been unable to make a breakthrough for too long, so I guess this was one of the few things he could do for fun.
However, to the disappointment of the two masters, Ye Lu took the next day off and didn’t come.
He was at the moment standing with his class for the first time to receive military training.
Ye Luo found that this time the instructor should really be from the army, because this young man had an expressionless face, a cold face, and his hands and feet carried that characteristic aura of a soldier.
“There is a new student who has finally arrived today, do you know what I hate the most? That is desertion, this student had a stomachache on the first day, a cold on the second day, food poisoning on the third day, a broken foot on the fourth day, and an arm from falling off the bed on the fifth day, and now he is actually still alive, what a miracle!”
Hearing this instructor’s words, Ye Lu turned his head to look at Nie Yibiao, who smiled and raised his thumb, then made an “OK” gesture, which made Ye Lu cry and laugh a little.
Then, the instructor said coldly.
“Ye Lu, come out of line.”
Ye Lu had no choice but to take two steps forward and stand out.
The other students all showed gloating expressions of watching the fun, in their opinion, they had worked so hard in the military training, and Ye Lu was the only guy slacking off, it was not fair, and a few girls muttered in a low voice.
“Looking quite handsome, so petulant, not as good as us girls.”
“That’s right, look at how tanned I’ve gotten in the past few days.”
“Look at him like that, he won’t be no good in bed either, will he?”
“Hee hee, will it work or not, why don’t you go and try.”
“Just try, as long as he lets me try, I dare to try, what’s so scary.”
The instructor did not stop the girls’ comments, and the boys’ mockery, in his opinion, it was time to teach Ye Lu a little lesson.
So, he looked at Ye Luo and said.
“I am a person who has always been fair, some people have good physiques in the sky and really don’t need much training, so I will give you a chance, if you can complete all the training programs I have arranged for you in a day, I can allow you to take time off for the training later on as well,”
Hearing that he could take as much time off as he wanted at the back, Ye Lu’s eyes immediately lit up, he was having a good time fighting with Doku Ao in the past few days.
However, the instructor followed and added.
“However, if you fail to complete my training plan, no leave, late arrivals, or early departures will be allowed after that, and you will have to add an hour of training every day at noon and at night.”
This meant that he had to soak in the playground every day, which was a bit too much for Ye Luo to bear.
So, Ye Luo smiled at the instructor and said.
“Then what project you say instructor, don’t make some project that even you can’t complete, then I’m not dead.”
He had to block the instructor’s way to make bad things happen first.
As a result, the instructor bristled and said.
“Just you still compare with me, don’t worry, I can easily complete all the training given to you.”
Hearing these words, Ye Lu let out a relieved sigh, seeing Ye Lu’s expression, the instructor’s brow furrowed as he looked at Ye Lu and said.
“First event, weight bearing, run twelve and a half laps around the playground, time starts.”
As he said this, he pointed to the backpacks, water bottles and other various things that had been prepared not far away.
When they heard this event, everyone drew in a breath of cold air, one lap of the playground was four hundred metres, twelve and a half laps was the rhythm of five kilometres of cross-country with weights.
For a real soldier, it might not matter, but for a student, it was unimaginable. Nie Yibiao, Mu Zize and An Le in the same dormitory all began to mourn for Ye Lu, while Nie Yibiao prepared Ye Lu’s afterlife in advance, and only Jin Kun remained expressionless.
Ye Luo didn’t feel anything, he walked over and picked up the load and ran.
Seeing Ye Lu carrying the load and disappearing in a 100m sprint, the instructor was dumbfounded, because others were not sure, but he understood that the load was a full ten kilograms heavier than a normal soldier’s training load.
“This kid is not open!”
He rubbed his chin and looked at Ye Luo who was running on the playground. It was only at this time that Ye Luo suddenly realised that he had to keep a low profile, so he hurriedly slowed down.
The instructor then said with a sigh of relief.
“It’s true that you’re not even as good as the new recruits, you’ll have to get down after you start running like crazy for a while.”
He then stopped paying attention to Ye Luo and started the regular formation training.
Soon, Ye Luo had run two laps, however, he suddenly realized that the instructor didn’t say how many minutes he ran to be considered passing ah, thinking of this, he quickly searched in his glasses, and he found out that the 5,000m weighted cross-country for the troops should be within twenty-three minutes, so he quickly started to adjust his speed.
The instructor, meanwhile, kept an eye on the number of laps Ye Luo had run.
He was surprised to find that Ye Luo had already run four laps and actually hadn’t gotten tired yet, while ordinary male students would have finished long ago.
“I didn’t think there was really some physical ability.”
He muttered while directing the formation, but soon he realized that Ye Luo didn’t seem to have any intention of stopping, he kept running, in the blink of an eye eight laps passed, ten laps passed …… Ye Luo was still running.
Soon, Ye Luo pretended to be panting and ran back to the front of the line.
“Report …… report captain, I am back?”
The instructor looked at the time, about twenty-two minutes or so, this performance is also passing in the army, so he said without moving his voice.
“Very good, the standard is met, the next item is push-ups one hundred, the timing starts.”
Hearing that the timing started, Ye Lu quickly got down on the ground and then started searching through his glasses, he found out that the troops counted 40 in two minutes to pass, so he kept the time to five minutes.
Nie Yibiao, on the other hand, was dumbfounded, he had no problem doing so many push-ups himself, he really didn’t expect Ye Lu to be able to do it.
“Wow! Is that school bully quite impressive.”
“Hee hee! Looks like there’s no need to worry about him having problems in bed.”
“Okay, next pull-up hundred, start.”
The instructor was getting surprised as he noticed that Ye Lu actually finished again and still just about compounded the standard.
“Next item, weighted squats, which girl wants to be the weight.”
He said as he looked at the girls in the class.
Immediately, everyone raised their hands and scrambled.
“I’ll do it!”
“Give sis a chance.”
“Don’t grab it from me.”
As a result, the instructor ended up pointing at a small girl of over seventy pounds, because he felt that he couldn’t do anything too obvious against Ye Lu, and he was still thinking of showing off in front of the female college students to try to pick up a girl.
The girl’s body was not only a little bit of a mess, but also a little bit of a mess.
Seeing how Ye Luo was sweating like rain, the crowd also talked about it.
“Instructor, this is too hard for you, let Ye Lu rest a bit.”
“That’s right, it’s not easy enough for him to finish.”
“Yeah, it’s not like he’s a special forces soldier.”
The instructor had to say helplessly.
“Okay, then your training program for the morning is here for now, go and rest.”
However, after that he realized that there seemed to be something wrong, although Ye Luo seemed to have completed every item with great effort, but like an undefeatable little strong man, he completed every item and counted them all to just meet the standard of the army, could this be a coincidence?
He looked at Ye Luo with some suspicion.
Ye Lu was happy to be free and went to sit next to him to rest, but what he didn’t expect was that when the team was disbanded at noon, a very good looking girl suddenly walked up to him and said with a smile.
“Ye Lu, I didn’t expect you to be quite fit, be my boyfriend, I’ll take care of you.”
