As An Immortal, I Only Learn Forbidden Skills - Chapter 923
A novel by the same Author of Reaper of the Drifting Moon and the same universe:
923 Snake King
“You’re really a good-for-nothing. How can such a minor injury not be treated? Hurry up and let me take a look. Otherwise, I won’t let you live!”
Li Nanchu was furious.
He had thought that he would not need Ning Caichen anymore! He felt that this royal physician was simply an idiot.
He sighed to himself, “Your life isn’t worth much, but the lives of your family members aren’t that worthless. You don’t want to end up with your entire family being executed, do you?”
Sikong Wuyuan could not help but say, “This is the best the royal physician can do. Didn’t Ning Caichen say that he could save you? Why don’t you just answer his question?”
Why was Li Nanchu being stubborn?
The royal physician hurriedly wiped away his cold sweat and went forward to continue examining Li Nanchu’s injuries and bandaging him.
However, he could only treat some external injuries. He could not treat the internal injuries at all.
Jiang Ming reminded him kindly, “The royal physician can’t treat your internal injuries. I don’t think you want to die like this, right? The internal strength of these snakes is not something that ordinary people can handle.”
“I don’t need it. I think the royal physician’s medical skills are very good,” Li Nanchu said stubbornly.
However, the pain in his body did not go away after the bandaging. He could not help but throw a tantrum at the royal doctor again.
The child looked at the royal physician pitifully. “I think we should let Ning Caichen take a look. Don’t pretend to be strong. The royal physician can’t do anything about it.”
The royal physician knew that he could not escape death. He quickly said, “Please punish me, Your Majesty. I really have no way to treat you.”
Li Nanchu had no choice but to cry. He said to Jiang Ming, “Lord Ning Caichen, just ask me whatever you want to ask. My treatment can’t be delayed any longer.”
“Alright, are those ministers real ministers or puppets? How are these puppets made?”
Jiang Ming sized up Li Nanchu’s injuries.
Li Nanchu really did not want to tell him. However, he could only compromise. “Those ministers are indeed not real people. They are puppets. As for those puppets, they are all under my control. They have an invisible thread in their bodies, but you didn’t know about it.”
“This type of puppet is quite popular. How is it made?”
Sikong Wuyuan could not help but feel strange.
“I’ve already answered Ning Caichen’s question,” Li Nanchu said, keeping his mouth shut. “Now, you have to treat me.”
“Are you sure? Your life is now in our hands. Moreover, if you don’t listen to us, you won’t have a good ending.”
Jiang Ming threatened Li Nanchu again, so he could only continue to answer.
“It’s very simple. Puppet techniques are very popular in various countries. As long as you draw a puppet on the spell paper and write the other party’s name on the puppet, the other party’s puppet will appear.”
“Are all the guests participating in the Moonlight Banquet puppets?” Jiang Ming asked as he treated Li Nanchu. “Or are you just using the pre-arranged banquet to trick us to get us to come over and take a look?”
Li Nanchu shook his head. “If I really wanted to lie to you, why didn’t I invite you directly? Why did I wait for you to go over? Wouldn’t that be asking for trouble?”
Just as the child was about to say something, the door was knocked on again.
This time, the impact was even more powerful than before. Li Nanchu could not help but panic.
He knew what this voice was. The Snake King had come. He had stolen many of its little snakes. Now he had to be punished, but he did not want to be punished.
“Who’s there?” Jiang Ming asked curiously when he saw Li Nanchu’s expression. “Do you recognize their knocks?”
Before Li Nanchu could explain, those people immediately said, “This is the Snake King. The Snake King is here! We took out all of its snakes, and it’s here to take revenge on us.”
“This Snake King is not easy to deal with.”
Yuan Hehe had seen the Snake King before. He could not help but frown. Then, he said, “We’ve made its snakes look like this. I’m afraid it will tear us into pieces.”
“No matter what, we have to face it. Moreover, this door should be able to hold on for some time.”
Jiang Ming made up his mind.
Although he was a little worried, everything was fine.
He felt that no matter what, he had to have the courage to resist.
However, at this moment, there was suddenly no movement outside the door.
Just when everyone thought that the Snake King had retreated, it suddenly crawled into the gap in the secret chamber.
Its body was so huge that it directly shattered the secret chamber, and rubble fell down.
For a moment, the crowd became chaotic and kept screaming.
Jiang Ming had no choice but to open the door. Everyone went out one after another, and the secret room was destroyed.
However, the Snake King was completely unharmed. It continued to look at everyone.
He paid special attention to Jiang Ming and rushed directly at him.
Unlike the snakes in the past, the spiritual energy on its body suddenly appeared and emitted colorful lights.
The light made people dizzy. Although Jiang Ming was not affected, Yuan Hehe, Sikong Wuyuan, and the others were.
The child’s legs began to lose strength.
Jiang Ming did not have the energy to pay attention to everyone’s conditions. He kept circling around the snake.
Li Nanchu started shouting, “I am already injured. Hurry up and treat me first!”
Although he managed to escape, it was only by luck. His body also had some external injuries.
Li Nanchu was in excruciating pain. He really needed Jiang Ming.
Jiang Ming grinned. He took some time to reply to Li Nanchu. “Li Nanchu, you’re on your own. I can’t even take care of myself.”
A snake took advantage of this and bit Jiang Ming’s neck.
Jiang Ming was not someone to be trifled with. He directly cut off the snake’s neck.
Blood gushed out of the snake’s neck like a river, directly surging some people out.
However, Jiang Ming realized that the snake could still move. It pretended to be dead and wanted to take the opportunity to kill Jiang Ming.
Jiang Ming pretended not to notice and moved toward its head, as if he wanted to check on the snake.
When Jiang Ming was not paying attention, the snake went over and bit his neck. However, he disappeared in an instant.
The big snake became irritated and kept howling at Jiang Ming.
Li Nanchu panicked.
He had a feeling that the Snake King would go on a rampage if it could not find its target.
