Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 223
Many thanks to Michelle for your support!
In this kind of forest, the smell of blood would be the best way to attract fierce beasts. The three beast men in front of her all turned to Yuan He, as if waiting for him to make a decision.
Yuan He nodded his head. They all knew Jia’s situation was severe. They had originally thought their only hope would be to visit the Beast God. But unexpectedly, there seemed to be hope.
XunMi led the way in front. Yuan He followed by her side, helping her wack away any obstacles. He didn’t allow those overgrown branches to hurt XunMi.
His careful motions didn’t go unnoticed by the beast men behind them. “Eh, do you think clan leader likes that female?”
“That female is pretty. There’s nothing strange in clan leader falling for her.”
“That’s right. I even think she’s too pretty. Luckily, I have a mate already.”
“I don’t have one! If I were to compete with clan leader, do you think I have any hope?” The beast man carrying Jia whispered. But afterwards, he saw the others immediately close their mouths.
“What’s wrong? I’m asking you guys a question, why aren’t you responding?”
“Jacob, you want to battle me? Great, when we get back to our camp, I’ll see you on the battle stage. But for now, move faster.” Yuan He had originally been in a good mood, sneaking peaks at XunMi while staying on alert for potential dangers. But after hearing the people behind him discussing, his heart sped with nervousness.
He had a strangely good impression of this female that he had only met for the first time, as if she was fated to come to him. That strange feeling made him slightly happy. But those others were too rowdy, even daring to set their eyes on Mi.
At this point, he hadn’t realized that he had already begun to consider XunMi as his.
XunMi’s lips lifted upwards. She had been able to hear the discussion behind them clearly. She also had a guess for her husband’s status: he should be YanYan Tribe’s clan leader, Yuan He. This was because only only YanYan tribe had a title of clan leader.
“We’ve arrived. You guys can put him down here. Can someone help get water? Water is in that direction.” XunMi pointed to a spot nearby and placed a cask on the floor. “Someone else, light a fire. The rest of you, help me hold him down. I don’t want him flailing around if he wakes up in the middle of me treating him.”
After distributing the labor, XunMi walked into the cave. She pretended to pull out a first aid kit from her cave while secretly reaching into her inventory. Inside the kit were a complete set of surgery knives and needles.
In terms of medication, she can use the herbs that she had previously found. She can show the herbs to these people and have them go out to collect more if need be.
“This?” Yuan He looked at the sharp shiny thing with a bit of doubt.
“Female, are you planning on using this to treat Jia? How does it work?” Another beast man was also baffled. All the shamans in the tribe just directly applied herbal medication.
XunMi replied while sterilizing her surgery equipment over the fire. “En, this beast man, Jia, has hurt his organs. If you didn’t bump into me, he would undoubtedly have died.”
No one refuted her words, as this kind of situation wasn’t rare in their tribe. At those times, the shaman would say that there was no hope. Then the injured beast man’s wound would rot and disappear to meet the Beast God.
To be honest, they didn’t hold much hope this time either. Afterall, Jia’s injury really was severe,
XunMi didn’t care what they were thinking. Seeing a beast man return with a cask of water, she immediately directed him to pour some into a bowl and boil it.
After doing a simple cleaning of Jia’s wound, XunMi began cutting off the pieces of flesh around the wound that had withered. Along the wound, she neatly cut a gap in Jia’s stomach. Using a gloved finger, XunMi lightly pulled out the intestines that had been cut and began stitching them together. When she was done, she carefully placed them back. She then cleaned up the silted blood water in his stomach.
While doing all of this, her hands were steady while her forehead was filled with perspiration. Her heart was also beating abnormally fast. This was the first time performing surgery on someone, she was still an amateur. But while she was worrying, she was also excited: she had the ability to save a life.
Yuan He wanted to help her wipe away the beads of sweat gracing her hairline but didn’t want to disturb her. Instead, he pressed down heavily on Jia’s wrists. Even if Jia were to wake up from the pain, he wouldn’t be able to move a muscle under Yuan He’s grip. Everyone else had stopped what they were doing and circled around them. They watched with astonishment at this disturbing method of lifesaving, speechless. They thought that the operation was over as XunMi began putting away her weapons, but then they saw her pull out a spicule looking object. They saw her repeatedly sewing around Jia’s wound. This time, they really didn’t know how to close the agaped mouths.
XunMi mischievously added a pretty butterfly knot to the meeting point of her sewing.
She relaxed. It was finally done. She patted Jia’s forehead. There was no signs of fever. Good.
“He shouldn’t be moved right now. I gave him some anti-inflammatory medicine. He should be fine.”
XunMi stood up, staggering a bit. Yuan He quickly reached out to steady her. “Are you alright?”
Shaking her head, XunMi tried to clear her foggy head. “I’m fine, I just exerted too much energy just now. I’m just a bit lightheaded. I’ll be fine after resting. Please make yourselves at home, don’t disturb me.” XunMi used the wall as support and walked into her cave. She headed straight for her head and went to sleep.
She urgently needed time to recover right now. She never knew how exhaustive such a attentive task could be.
Yuan He worriedly watched her walk away. He wanted to follow behind her. But he was conscious of her status as an unmarried female. If news got out, there would be bad gossip.
Instead, he stood in front of the opening, staring yearningly at the figure lying on the bed.
“Clan leader, this female is a high leveled shaman. If she could join our clan, then that would be a great honour for YanYan.” Gavin leaned in.
Xi’s eyes shined as he spoke with excitement, “Our old priest once said that God’s messenger would descend into YanYan. She will have an imprint on her and can lead YanYan to even higher heights! This female must be the Beast God’s angel! There’s even a mark on her forehead.”
Gavin and Jacob froze in astonishment. That’s right, this female was far too…pretty in a way that made her stand out. Especially her previously showcased medical treatment method. That was unheard of!
More importantly, everyone in the clan knew about that prophesy. It was just that hundreds of years had gone by. No one had been found so it had long been forgotten.
