After dealing with the poison in Silver Cloud’s body, Ye Ningyuan
realized that Xunuo was gone. He panicked and asked Xu Xing to stay
behind to take care of Silver Cloud while he rushed back to the mountain,
only to see her lying unconscious under an old tree. Her face was
extremely pale. He called her name several times, but An Xunuo didn’t
respond. He thought that she might have been bitten by the snakes as
well, so he checked her body for wounds. Fortunately, there was no sign
of snake bites. He then brought her back to take a rest.
He didn’t know why An Xunuo fainted, or why the snakes disappeared once
she whistled. How did she manage to control those poisonous creatures?
To be honest, he didn’t want to know why.
Ye Ningyuan’s heart calmed down gradually upon looking at her pale
face. An Xunuo would never know how nervous he was earlier on. He was
really scared that the snakes would swallow her alive.
Seeing her lying motionless on the ground, his heart almost stopped. This
made him realize how scared he was. He didn’t even dare to check for
her breath for fear of any accident. Fortunately, he could feel her
shallow breath when he carried her in his arms. Although her body was
cold, nothing was more important than the fact that she was still alive.
“Ningyuan, is she okay?” Xu Xing’s face was still pale, but she had
become stronger. She stopped crying and had taken good care of Silver
Cloud. Although Xu Xing didn’t like her, she was very flustered when
she heard that An Xunuo had met with an accident. Xu Xing didn’t want
anything to happen to her as An Xunuo had saved them, after all.
“She’s okay.” He had returned to his calm state. “Take care of
Silver Cloud properly. I’ll go find some herbs in the mountains. He is
not completely detoxified yet.”
Ye Ningyuan didn’t know much about snake venom. Fortunately, there was
a lot of information about it in Xu Nuo’s room. There was also a letter
in which the solutions of all kinds of snake venom were recorded in
detail. All the herbs could be found in the mountains.
The letter was something new that he had just found. He could only
suppress the snake venom in Silver Cloud for the time being. If he wanted
to detoxify him, he still needed the herbs to make medicine. He had
looked around in Xu Nuo’s room in hopes to find related books. After
the reconstruction of the mansion, he had put all the things back at
their original place, and they were rarely touched. He found the letter
in a pile of books. The handwriting looked childish but neat. It should
be the handwriting of Xu Nuo when she was young.
He was reminded of how much Xu Nuo liked those small poisonous creatures
and how she used to scare him with them.
According to the records in her letter, he found several herbs in the
mountains and cut them up before putting them on Silver Cloud’s wounds.
He also asked Xu Xing to cook a bowl of medicine for him. Within two
hours, Silver Cloud broke out in a sweat. His darkened face finally
turned fair again. Although his face was pale, the snake venom was
An Xunuo slept until midnight. She felt a tall figure standing beside the
bed. She had gone into a trance and the last thing she remembered was the
snakes that wrapped around her body. After that, some blurry images
flashed by before she fell into a coma.
“Silver Cloud?” She narrowed her eyes. She didn’t feel any
discomfort, but she was tired. It seemed that the snake didn’t bite
her. Xunuo got up. She could not see Silver Cloud’s expression clearly
in the dark. “What are you doing here?”
Silver Cloud looked at her pale face in silence. He had intentionally
attracted the snakes out today. He didn’t worry about her being hurt as
he had a way to protect Xu Xing. He just wanted to prove one thing.
He wanted to know if An Xunuo was Xu Nuo.
In the end, as he had expected, she was able to drive away the snakes.
Many people on the island knew that Xu Nuo liked to keep those small
poisonous creatures in the mountains then. That was why nobody dared to
provoke her. Those poisonous creatures were her most loyal guardians.
They wouldn’t bite anyone at will and would only listen to Xu Nuo’s
command. Nobody could mimic her whistle no matter how hard they tried.
She was a special snake trainer.
He had only seen the snakes dancing all over the mountains once. It was
“Why?” Silver Cloud asked her in a calm voice. For so many years, he
had thought that she was dead. An Xunuo, Xu Nuo… He could almost
confirm that they were the same person. However, he didn’t know why her
body seemed different. He had always felt that she was familiar and that
she was full of secrets. But, he didn’t expect that this was her secret.
“What did you say!?”
“You are Xu Nuo, aren’t you? Why are you denying that Xu Xing is your
sister? Why are you keeping it from us?”
As if she had heard something funny, An Xunuo looked at him
Silver Cloud merely looked at her in silence. The moment of confusion and
self-mockery did not escape his eyes. Anything could be deceiving, except
for one’s gaze. One’s gaze could reveal one’s real thoughts.
She wasn’t pretending. She really didn’t know what he was talking
Silver Cloud was lost as well.
Everything became confusing and mysterious. An Xunuo asked him what
happened, and Silver Cloud told her everything. He told her about Xu
Nuo’s childhood, the iron gate, the snake swarm, and the white
camellias. Everything. He noticed the change in her facial expression as
he spoke, but he could see nothing but peace and calmness.
“Silver Cloud, you are so stupid. I don’t know what you are talking
about, but I can tell you honestly that everything is just your
illusion,” An Xunuo said calmly. “Although I have been in a
vegetative state for several years, I remember the pain that I felt
during the accident that happened when I was a child. I also remember my
dad’s nervous expression and how he had talked to me every day when I
was in a coma. I heard them all. If I were the person you mentioned,
there should be a clear difference in time. Although I don’t quite
remember my mommy, I remember my father and how much he loved me. Don’t
do such stupid things in the future. It’s okay if you want to die.
Don’t drag Xu Xing along.”
Silver Cloud frowned again and said nothing more. She left her room and
went back to his mansion. Xu Xing was standing in the moonlight, looking
at him. With a faint smile, she asked, “Where have you been?”
“I was at Xunuo’s,” Silver Cloud said. “She saved our lives
today, so I went to thank her.”
Xu Xing looked down and nodded. She seemed downcast.
Silver Cloud went over and stroked the wrinkles between her eyebrows with
his slightly trembling fingers. He was reminded of the dangerous moment
earlier on. If he had placed his bets wrongly and An Xunuo could not get
rid of the snakes…
Xu Xing would…
A stream of pain flowed into his heart. Suddenly, he reached out to hold
her in his arms. “Xing Xing, I’m sorry. I’m really sorry. This
won’t happen again in the future.”
