Once he finished his speech, he left with gloomy eyes and never looked back.

The courtyard was silent now. Elder Yu clenched his fist and spoke with a great fury, "Lady Ghost Doctor, even if you don't intend on avenging our Lady, I won't forgive anyone who dares to harm her and I don't mind crossing the Xia Family! Xia Zixi has murdered her Ladyship, I won't let them get away with this!"

Wei Yiyi shook her head. Her lips smiled, "Elder Yu, please. You've been alive for so many years. Would you immediately believe everything anyone says? They said that our Master is dead? Have you seen it for yourself?"

Elder Yu paused and shook his head, "No."

"If you have not seen it, why would you say that she's dead? I would only recognize it if I saw the body with my own eyes, not by the idle proclamations of others. As long as there is no body, I will not believe it."

"But I'd rather believe it to be true than to believe that it is not. Lady Ghost Doctor, the Master has treated you so well, how could you abandon her? Her Ladyship declared that she would be going to the Xia Household a few months ago and we have not heard from her for so long. She's clearly fallen into the hands of the Xia Family! I am going to capture that Xia Linyu, and force them to return her Ladyship to us."

Wei Yiyi rolled her eyes, completely speechless. She simply could not see any good qualities in this bad-tempered and stubborn old man. After some thought, she threw a letter into Elder Yu's direction.

"What's this?" Elder Yu opened the letter suspiciously and frowned. Once he read the contents of the letter, his originally angry expression disappeared and was replaced with one of astonishment and pleasant surprise.

"Lady Ghost Doctor, her Ladyship... She's alright?"

"Precisely," Wei Yiyi nodded, "She sent this letter to me and I've only just received it last night. She's informed me that the Young Master of the Xia Family, Xia Zixi is gravely ill, and has asked me to give him treatment. So tell me, why would the Xia Family want to kill her? Besides, I've long known that Xia Qi is not as warm and courteous as he seems. This time, he probably wants to use us as pawns to have Xia Linyu killed. If the Hundred Herb Hall were to murder Xia Linyu, what do you think would happen?"

What could happen?

If Xia Linyu were to die by the hands of members of the Hundred Herb Hall, then the life of her Ladyship who was still residing in the Xia Estate will surely be in jeopardy!

Elder Yu felt a chill from head to toe at the thought of this and shivered.

"What a good strategy to kill two birds with one stone. Xia Qi of the Xia Family is truly a sinister and cunning man. Not only does he want to use us as pawns to get rid of his enemies, he even wants to harm her Ladyship. Fortunately, we were not deceived. Otherwise, the consequences would be unthinkable!"

Wei Yiyi smiled, a cold light flashed across her eyes and she slowly declared, "Since Xia Qi dared to manipulate the Hundred Herb Hall, then he...must pay the price! Elder Yu, I'll leave the matters regarding the Hundred Herb Hall to you. I am going to the Xia Family estate in Heaven City!"

"Lady Ghost Doctor, please be assured. I will not disappoint you."

Elder Yu lightly nodded his head, with an expression filled with worry. If Xia Qi was such a hypocritical and sinister man, then her Ladyship's situation would be quite difficult...

Outside the Hundred Herb Hall, Xia Fan coldly glared at the simple-looking medicinal hall behind him with a sneer.

"Initially, I did not want to utilize the Second Master's last resort. But you've all forced my hand! Since I've already personally come to call on you, then you'd better believe in my words. Who would have known that these people would be so hard to deceive! Since that's the case, then don't blame me for sending a few of my men to impersonate your members of the Hundred Herb Hall and murder the Little Master! Besides, at the end of the day, the relationship between the Hundred Herb Hall and the Xia Family will be shattered. In this collaboration with the Master, both sides will suffer. Under these circumstances, the Young Master will never be able to improve and rise on his own. In the end, the Xia Family shall only belong to the Second Master!"
