he book, the Second Prince, the male supporting role, was plotted against by his political enemies and fell down the cliff.
But luckily, he survived, and finally arrived near Qingshui village in destitution2.
At that time, Yu Yuan just happened to be chopping firewood nearby.
Seeing the Second Prince who was dressed in extraordinary clothing, he saved his life.

In return, the Second Prince brought Yu Yuan back to the capital and trained him as his right-hand man.
Later, in the contention between the royal princes, Yu Yuan gave advice to the Second Prince as his close confidant, and the Second Prince was able to successfully succeed the throne.
And Yu Yuan, as a staunch member of the Second Prince’s party who’d worked hard3 to help him seize the throne, was granted the title of Prime Minister.

But right now, Yu Yuan hadn’t met the Second Prince.
If Yu Yuan didn’t meet him, even if he went to the capital, he still wouldn’t be the Second’s Prince’s right-hand man, couldn’t come into contact with the center of power, and becoming the Prime Minister would be even harder than climbing to heaven4.

Whether Yu Yuan wanted to agree to Teacher’s proposal or not, she’d still need to find a way to delay it.
Yan Mu was lost in thought.

Both of them reached home.
Today, Father Yan was late.
Yan Mu waited for a long time but he still didn’t arrive, so she decided to cook by herself.
There were a few steamed buns left over from the morning, so she prepared to cook simple scrambled eggs with scallions to eat together with the steamed buns.

Yu Yuan went to pick scallions in the courtyard, but he heard a sudden knock on the door.

He opened the door and saw Aunt Zhou who urgently said, “Where’s Yan Mu? Her father was bitten by a snake in the field, and he’s not doing well right now.”

The sound of falling spatula came from the house and Yan Mu appeared at the door looking pale.

Aunt Zhou was an impatient person, so she reached out her hand and pulled Yan Mu along as she ran out.
Aunt Zhou’s grip was too strong and she didn’t pay attention to her strength so Yan Mu staggered and almost fell to the ground.

Yan Mu subconsciously shook off Aunt Zhou’s hand.
Her wrist was red and the place that was pinched by Aunt Zhou was swollen.

Aunt Zhou was stunned, then spoke without sparing any feelings, “He’s your own dad, why aren’t you worried? Your dad even raised you good-for-nothing daughter.”

As soon as the words left her mouth, she felt a chill come from beside her. 

She turned around and saw Yu Yuan’s deep eyes eerily looking at her.
Though he was expressionless and clearly didn’t do anything, Aunt Zhou still inexplicably had an ominous feeling.

As expected of a little bastard, a person who brings bad luck! Aunt Zhou angrily scolded in her heart.

“Your dad is laid up at the village doctor’s, hurry up and go,” Aunt Zhou said.
With that, she turned her head and walked away.

Yan Mu covered her hand and watched Aunt Zhou hurriedly leave.

“Are you alright?” Yu Yuan looked at Yan Mu’s hand, “It’s getting more and more swollen.”

“It’s alright.” Yan Mu took a deep breath, pretending to be alright and said, “It doesn’t hurt, let’s go see dad first.”

Yu Yuan lowered his eyes and nodded.

*************

This time, Father Yan was slightly unlucky as he was bitten by a type of water snake.
With the abundance of rain in the summer, water snakes washed up along the river, so it might not have been a local breed.

Worst of all, the snake escaped after biting him, and without knowing the species, even the village doctor couldn’t determine the antidote.

“This village doesn’t have many herbs prepared.
Even if someone goes to pick some now, no one else can recognize them……” the village doctor was worried. 

He was the only one in the village who knew about medicine, and he still had other patients here, so he really couldn’t leave.

“What other herbs do you need?” Yu Yuan said in a deep voice, “I’ll go pick them.”

At his words, everyone fell silent.

“You……you know medicine?” the village doctor asked in surprise.

If Yu Yuan really knows medicine……

The village doctor couldn’t help but shudder when he inexplicably remembered Hunter Zhang and Zhang Goudan.

How deep the thoughts and schemes of the teenager in front of him must be.
The gaze of the village doctor when he looked at the teenager suddenly became probing.

Yu Yuan naturally knew the village doctor’s thoughts.
But Father Yan had been so kind to him, so he couldn’t just stand back and let him die5.

Moreover, Father Yan was Yan Mu’s father.
With this in mind, he gritted his teeth and repeated, “What herbs do you need? I’ll go pick them.”

“I’ll go with you,” Yan Mu said.
