Chapter 479 Fight Poison With Poison, Use Blood As Cure
Her second poison test was a failure since she already had the flower poison. Now at her third poison test, the combined effects of both poisons crept throughout her body. The rosy colors drained from her palm-sized face and she became sickly pale. Soon, her legs gave way and she fell to the floor.
Tiny beads of sweat started to form on her forehead and her vision began to blur. With trembling fingers, Xia Micheng quickly reached out to her mom’s medical codex and flipped to the last page.
The last page wrote, ‘Fight poison with poison; use blood as cure.’
Under usual circumstances, she would have died on the spot if she conducted the third poison test, let alone saving Mr. Lu. However, the last page of the medical codex left a very mysterious acupuncture method—which was to seal one’s own blood flow to the heart with a gold needle and draw a drop of blood from the heart to save another.
This technique of curing a life with another’s only existed in legends. Both Xia Micheng and Lu Xinang had heard about it before, but they had no idea how to implement it. Never did it occur to Xia Micheng that the medical codex which her mom left her had such an unorthodox technique.
Xia Micheng inserted a gold needle into her acupoint to protect herself temporarily by continuing her pulse.
