He thought it was unlikely. Little Qing couldn't enter the Moon Rebel Hall, and the two of them obviously didn't know each other before. The likelihood of Xu Qing poisoning the latter in real life was low.
This puzzled the captain. At that moment, the old man slowly woke up. He looked around blankly but at the next instant, his eyes uttered sharpness as he suddenly sat up.
After sensing that most of the poison in his body had dissipated, his expression instantly changed. He looked at the captain and Xu Qing.
"How did you neutralize my poison?"
Xu Qing didn't say anything and expressionlessly took a few steps back. The captain chuckled and sized up the old man.
"37951, tell me first. How did you fall into this state?"
The old man fell silent. As someone who had held a high position for a long time, he rarely encountered a Nascent Soul cultivator who dared to speak to him in an equal tone.
Considering that the other party had saved his life and neutralized his poison, as well as appeared from the encirclement of the Red Moon, many thoughts and doubts rose in his heart.
This was especially so since he didn't know what was going on outside…
At the thought of this, the old man suppressed the thoughts in his heart. He only wanted to leave as soon as possible. He stood up and tidied his clothes. A sense of dignity also rose as he spoke in a low voice.
"Thank you, little friends, but let's not talk about private matters. This is my tribulation and I don't want to tell others."
As he spoke, he took out a storage bag and threw it to the captain.
"This is the reward I promised earlier. I can't stay here for long. If we meet again in the future, this old man will repay you in another way."
After saying that, the old man's body swayed and he rose into the air. He didn't bother with Xu Qing and the captain anymore. He circulated his cultivation and headed outside. He was also prepared to fight to the death.
However, the instant he rushed out of the cave, he saw the situation outside and couldn't help but stop in his tracks. Everything in front of him caused a huge commotion in his heart and his expression instantly became bewildered.
As far as the eye could see, there were many cultivators from the Red Moon Shrine lying everywhere. All of them were unscathed but they had lost consciousness. What shocked him the most was the Red Moon Divine Envoy standing in the air.
"What's going on!!"
This scene caused the old man's heart to stir. He noticed that the divine envoy in the air seemed to have been stopped there.
Other than being shocked, he couldn't help but turn his head and look behind him. He thought to himself that in the two months he had been fighting with his life against poison, what had happened outside and who were these two people…
He was a little hesitant. He thought about his previous attitude, so he turned and returned to the cave. He put away all his dignity and became incomparably polite.
"Previously, I was anxious and my words were presumptuous. Thank you, Fellow Daoists, for saving my life. Outside…"
The old man looked at Xu Qing and the captain and probed.
He could sense the bizarreness of the people from the temple outside, but he couldn't imagine what kind of background and ability could make the cultivators from the Red Moon Shrine, including the divine envoy, lose consciousness.
Xu Qing was expressionless, but the captain smiled and spoke.
"There's no need to worry about the outside situation. 37951, your poison injuries were so serious. Was it caused by your enemy?"
He was filled with curiosity about the old man's poison injuries.
The old man looked at the two people in front of him and then glanced at the shocking situation outside. He pondered in his heart and sighed, choosing to tell them.
"It's nothing much."
"What is it?" The captain was curious.
"This old man bought a poison pill from a person in the Moon Rebel Hall two months ago," the old man slowly said.
"And?" the captain pressed.
"That pill was very cheap, so I didn't care too much about it." The old man shook his head.
"Was there a problem with this pill?" The captain quickly asked.
The old man fell silent before continuing to speak. At the start, he only said a few simple words. However, after three to five sentences, with the active cooperation of the captain, the grievances he had accumulated during this period of time turned into a desire to confide.
"I originally thought that it was an ordinary poisonous pill, but who would have thought that this brat would play tricks on me!"
"At first, I felt alright after swallowing that medicinal pill. It felt ordinary but who knew that the aftereffects would become greater and greater? In the end, it directly erupted. Before I could react, I was poisoned!"
"That's too much!" The captain exclaimed and glanced at Xu Qing.
Xu Qing was expressionless while the old man's face was filled with anger.
"That's right, it's extremely overboard! I couldn't move at all during this period of time and resisted with all my might to neutralize it. I barely survived until you guys arrived. This is f*cking inhumane!"
"I suspect that that brat was sent by my enemy. I was too careless, and he is too vicious!!"
"The most overboard thing is that the poison pill is a compound poison. Compound poison is so expensive, but he actually sold it to me for just some information. He's too sinister!"
The captain uttered again. As a result, the old man's desire to confide in him grew even stronger. However, Xu Qing's brows furrowed as the other party spoke about the brat again and again.
"Moreover, before this brat left, in order to numb me, he even hypocritically reminded me not to swallow it and to just use its scrape powder. Now that I look at it, he was clearly provoking me!"
The more the old man spoke, the more grief and indignation he felt. In the end, he let out a long sigh.
"It's also my fault for being too headstrong and swallowing it directly…"
"Who do you think this is, if not an enemy? He understands me so well and completely targeted my personality. I have to find this enemy!"
