Chapter 296: Li Rongxue’s Request

In the room, Wang Teng sat cross-legged on the bed.
There was a pile of scrolls beside him as well as a rune legacy stone.

“It looks like Li Rongxue put in a lot of effort to help her father find an antidote,” Wang Teng exclaimed when he looked at the information contained inside.

Honestly, what poison does Lord Yang have? Why is it so difficult to cure?

Although Wang Teng didn’t see it personally, from the information he had on his hands, it wasn’t hard to tell that the poison was extraordinary.

He looked through all the information.
Soon, a yellowish beast-skin scroll caught his attention.

Lunar Eclipse Poison Scripture.

This is it! Wang Teng’s eyes lit up.
He looked at the words on the scroll.


He was confused and frustrated until he wanted to vomit blood.

The title was written in universal character, but the content was written in ancient writing that he couldn’t understand!

Wang Teng felt his head hurt.
Li Rongxue’s face appeared in his mind.
She must be laughing at home now.

What a narrow-minded lady!

Li Rongxue must have guessed this ending.
However, she still passed it to him.
She must be taking revenge for earlier.

Wang Teng flipped through the materials and realized that he couldn’t understand most of the content.
He picked out the words and did a rough gauge.
There were at least four types of ancient languages, but he didn’t know a single one.

After thinking about it, his only choice was to go back and look for Li Rongxue.
She must have the translated version with her.

“That lady is really calculative.
She gave me the original version and hid the translated version.
Even if I question her, she can deny it outright.” Wang Teng thought for a moment and understood what happened.
He was furious, but he sighed dejectedly.

He had to give in.
Translating so many materials wasn’t an easy job.
Starting from zero would cost him too much time.
It wasn’t worth it.
Getting the translated version from Li Rongxue was the best choice.

Wang Teng went out.
He asked around and headed to the Lord Yang Residence.

The Lord Yang Residence was the most influential place in Yang City.
It was situated in the middle of the city and was massive in size, with pavilions and towers dotting the landscape.
It was built beside a mountain and a river, providing picturesque scenery.
This was the mansion among the mansions.
He wondered how many people and resources were used to construct this place.

Wang Teng got stopped by the guards at the entrance.

“I know your princess.
Please inform her,” Wang Teng said.

The guard sized up Wang Teng curiously.
In the end, he nodded and said, “Wait here.
I will inform the princess of your arrival.”

One of them entered the huge mansion from the side door.
After some time, he came out with another person.

It was the pretty young lady who had brought the materials to Wang Teng.

“Follow me.”

The young lady seemed to know that he would come.
She covered her mouth and smiled.
Then, she led the way and entered the residence.

Wang Teng followed behind her and walked into the Lord Yang Residence.

The architecture inside had an ancient feel, and the style was special.
They walked for some time and took many turns.
They went through corridors, passed through small gardens, and finally arrived at an individual courtyard.

Wang Teng saw Li Rongxue again.

“We meet again.
I thought that you would not want to see me again, you know.
Yet, it hasn’t been half a day, yet you came to find me.” Li Rongxue smiled brightly like a… fox!

“Hmph, you should know why I came to find you.” Wang Teng smiled coldly.
He sat down on a stone chair in the courtyard without any pretense.
There were pastries and tea on the stone table.
He poured a cup of tea for himself before picking up a piece of pastry and eating it.

Li Rongxue didn’t care.
She looked at him innocently and said, “What did you say? I don’t understand anything.”

“Act, continue acting.” Wang Teng’s face was filled with disdain.

When the pretty young lady saw the two of them speaking in riddles, she smiled and retreated to the side.

For a moment, none of them spoke.
They were both waiting for the other party to speak first.
The person who opened the mouth first would be at a disadvantage.

Wang Teng remained calm as he ate the pastries and drank the tea.
He appeared relaxed as he admired the scenery in the courtyard.

Li Rongxue felt the edge of her mouth twitching.
This fellow was extremely thick-skinned.

Never mind, I don’t think he will open his mouth if I don’t.
He can afford to wait, but I can’t.

Li Rongxue sighed in her heart.
Then, she opened her mouth and said with a smile, “Why don’t we strike another deal?”

“No comments,” Wang Teng pouted and replied.

“Don’t be angry.
Listen to what I have to say.
I did this because I had no other choice.
There are not many people I can trust,” Li Rongxue explained with a bitter smile.

“What you said is quite funny.
You don’t trust many people.
Are you saying that you trust me?” Wang Teng scoffed.

“I do trust you,” Li Rongxue replied resolutely.

Wang Teng was stunned.
He raised his head and looked at her in disbelief.

“You love money and are a little stingy, but once you make a deal, you will carry it out properly.
We cooperated before, so I trust you,” Li Rongxue said.

Wang Teng rolled his eyes.
He didn’t agree or deny her assessment of him.
He just said, “You think too highly of me.”

“This is the translated version.” With a wave of her hand, a few scrolls appeared on the table.
She continued, “I schemed against you, and I apologize for that.
Whether you help me or not, you can take these translated versions.
Of course, if you’re willing to help me, you will gain the friendship of my Lord Yang Residence.”

Wang Teng flipped through the translated scrolls before keeping them in his space ring.
He said, “Tell me what you need.”

A tinge of happiness flashed past Li Rongxue’s eyes.
She said hurriedly, “I want you to help me steal the Purple Core Herb from the Yao family.”

Steal the Purple Core Herb? Wang Teng was astounded.
He looked at her and asked, “Didn’t you say that you have a way?”

“I wanted to pressure the Yao family to make them hand over the Purple Core Herb, but the Yao family head has been a little moody recently because of the death of his youngest son.
He didn’t listen to anything I said and kept beating around the bush.
He denied that he had the Purple Core Herb, so I can’t do anything to him,” Li Rongxue said helplessly.
“Since I’ve already alerted him, I can’t force him to give me the Purple Core Herb using other methods.”

“The family head’s youngest son is dead?” Wang Teng asked calmly.

Li Rongxue found it strange that Wang Teng took notice of this part out of the whole explanation.
However, she nodded and replied, “Yes, I heard that he was killed by martial warriors from Earth when he went out one day.
The family head is frantically seeking revenge.”

“Haha!” Wang Teng laughed awkwardly.
That sounded like him! Not only did he kill the man’s youngest son, but he also killed his oldest son.
This was a huge grudge.

“With your ability, you will have a high chance of stealing the Purple Core Herb from the Yao family.
I can cooperate with you.
If you meet any dangers, you can release a signal, and I’ll send people in to save you.
I’ll not let any accidents happen to you,” Li Rongxue said.

“Your thoughts are good.” Wang Teng got up and waved his hands.
“Thank you for the pastries.
I’ll leave now.”

Li Rongxue’s gaze dimmed when she saw him leaving without any hesitation.

“Princess, he…” The pretty servant frowned as she walked forward.

“Forget it.
We can’t force him.
We’ll send other people if there’s no other choice,” Li Rongxue said helplessly.
