After Adrian drank the antidote that he made for himself, he slashed open the needle hole on the back of his hand and applied some herbal medicine to it. Only then did he release his acupoints.
The next moment, dark purple liquid gushed out. He wiped the sweat off his forehead and sighed a breath of relief. He almost failed to heal himself!
He didn’t expect Zayn to be able to produce such a toxic poison even though his character wasn’t all that great.
If he hadn’t recovered some of his strength and suppressed the poison of the heart-stopper pampas, it would have been too late for him to remove the toxin from his body. He nearly lost his life to obtain the meridian-nourishing plant.
In the next few days, he would have to continuously consume herbal medicine in order to completely eliminate the remaining toxin from his body.
After giving it some thought, he realized that he had paid quite high of a price.
Meanwhile, Baltazar was still frantically trying to save his beloved genius disciple, but no matter how hard he tried, Zayn’s symptoms showed no sign of improvement.
When he glanced at the white mouse on the table again, he noticed that it was no longer moving. It had turned stiff and lost its vital signs. It was at that moment that Baltazar realized he had been tricked.
His eyes reddened and presented an ardent killing intent, but his disciple was in a coma now and he still had to rely on Adrian to save him, so he hesitated to attack.
“Dr. Larson, we surrender. Please save my disciple…”
For the sake of his disciple, he had no choice but to surrender to Adrian this time. As he spoke, he handed over the meridian-nourishing plant to him.
“It’s too late now. The seven-step vine acts on the nervous system. He wouldn’t have suffered as much if you had prepared the antidote from the start. Unfortunately, you delayed it for far too long. The toxin has already infiltrated his nervous system. Even if I was able to treat him, he would be disabled.”
Hearing that, Baltazar felt as if he was struck by lightning. He never expected that such a tiny bit of seven-step vine could have such a horrible impact.
Zayn was his beloved genius disciple! How could he die right here?
“I genuinely beg for you to save my disciple, Dr. Larson. I will be extremely grateful if you can do that.” Feeling anxious, Baltazar bowed at Joe.
He wouldn’t have done it in the first place if he knew this was going to happen.
The role of the fifteen other tonics was to stimulate the medicinal properties of the seven-step vine. On the other hand, it was to accumulate the toxicity of the ingredient. Once it entered the blood system, it would become a ticking time bomb.
It would initially benefit the body before attacking it later.
In the case of small animals, the drug had a strong effect. As a result, the animals would be in a state of suspended animation. It would awaken again once it had absorbed everything. Once the seven-step vine completely broke out, the animal would finally meet its end.
Shaking his head, Adrian still kindly walked to Zayn’s side.
After inserting a Revitalization Leaf into his mouth, he flipped him over. With the move of his right hand, he poked three silver needles behind his neck.
This time, Zayn’s body visibly twitched.
Adrian poked each acupuncture point that was aligned with his spine. When he pulled the three silver needles out, three black blood clots spluttered out.
“All done. For the coming week, give him this medicine three times a day according to the prescription. He will live, but he will be half-disabled.”
A killer would eventually be killed. Since Zayn wanted to take his life, Adrian wasn’t going to let him go easily. Saving him was already the biggest mercy he could offer.
Baltazar then carried his beloved disciple in his arms. He understood what Adrian meant by half-disabled.
Even if a deity came to save him, there was no way to completely heal him once the toxins entered his spinal nerves.
“Thank you very much, Dr. Larson. I will be eternally grateful for your kindness today. See you again soon.”
Carrying his disciple, Baltazar hurriedly left the place.
“This old man is such an *sshole! Look at him kneeling and begging when he wants to save his disciple. Now that you’ve saved him, he’s getting ideas about killing you again. Shall we stop them from leaving?”
While suggesting that, Salazar cracked his neck.
“Are you insane? He’s a miracle doctor from the Ten Greatest Families of Emsgate, alright? If you kill him, the Dupont Family will come for us!”
After speaking, Adrian didn’t bother to watch the duo leave. “Sometimes, living is worse than being dead. Alright, now. Let’s tidy up.”
Wearing plastic gloves, he poured the heart-stopper pampas elixir on the ground. In less than five minutes, all the weeds in the surrounding area were wilted.
Salazar looked distressed. It was a pity that this kind of poison necessary for murder and arson was thrown away just like that. However, he had no choice. Adrian didn’t like this method of eliminating his enemies. Unless absolutely necessary, he preferred to speak with his fists.
