Chapter 45: Warmth of an angels wings

Princess Changping looked over, about to speak when the empress cut her off. "Isnt that so? Well have to give thanks to Grand Imperial Concubines item for that. Chenqie will definitely tell the empress dowager so she can prepare a generous gift in gratitude."
The empress didnt dare to have the empress dowager find out about this. Yet she knew that Grand Concubine Yi wouldnt leave unless she said these words. She really had enough of this! When Changping recovered, she didnt want to see Grand Concubine Yi or Han Yunxi again!
Grand Concubine Yi was flushed with success as her face lit up with pleasure. "Theres no need to be so courteous. Yunxi was given to our house by the empress dowager!"
Han Yunxi noted some details and instructions before returning home with the grand imperial concubine. Seeing mother and daughter holding hands as they left, the empress was angry enough to stomp her feet. Suddenly, she turned to storm into the rooms. Princess Changping was still immersed in her own happy world. How did she know how many petty annoyances her mother had endured to save her?
"Changping, you better do things more carefully for me in the future. This time it wasnt just me, but your imperial grandmother that lost face!"
"Did you see Grand Concubine Yis smug expression?!"
Seeing the empress so huffy, Changping finally had someone to take the mirror away. "Muhou, you cant blame me for this. Isnt it all Han Yunxis fault? If it wasnt for her, I never would had to go to a dirty place like the prisons! Of course she should save me, but dont think Ill repay her for it!"
"Youre still talking. Cant you do things without worrying your muhou for once?!" the empress roared.
Princess Changping fell into a fright. Her mother had never yelled at her like this before!
"I...I..." Changping changed her train of thought. "Muhou, theres no telling if she was the one who poisoned me! Ive long suspected that she poisoned Qingwu gege too. Otherwise, how could a useless trash like her suddenly get so skilled? If its her own poison, of course shell know how to treat it!"
These words put the empress on guard. For a useless trash like Han Yunxi to suddenly become a genius really was strange.
"Muhou, hows this? Well test her one more time?" Princess Changping hurriedly suggested. The empresss cold gaze turned thoughtful as she calculated. Han Yunxi was still one of the Han Familys people even after getting married. She was Divine Doctor Hans daughter, so perhaps she could discuss a countermove with the empress dowager...

Grand Concubine Yi let go of Han Yunxis hands as soon as they left the palace. Han Yunxi expected this. She knew that being the daughter of the empress dowagers lifesaver naturally made her Grand Concubine Yis enemy, and didnt demand the grand imperial concubine treat her like family. She just wanted less troubles for herself.
After getting into the carriage, Grand Concubine Yis first question was, "Where did you learn your medical skills from?"
She answered her the same way she answered Long Feiye, deciding that this would be how she always explained in the future. It was likely that both this woman and her son had looked into her beforehand. They couldnt find her weak points within the Han household, so they shouldnt expect to discover any clues with her, either. As soon as she mentioned Lady Tianxin, Grand Concubine Yis face turned much darker. She didnt ask any more about her or her time in the prisons.

Waiting for her? Was it to treat poisons again?
All right, Han Yunxi admitted that she was a little curiousand a bit fearful of his mood. She made her way back until she was sitting before him. He opened his mouth and asked, "Did you resolve the matter with Princess Changping?"
Ehh....? He knew?
"Your highness really gets news fast," Han Yunxi replied.
Long Feiye didnt look into it any further, but said, "Rest early. Tomorrow morning, come out with me."
Where did this guy want to take her?
"To do what?" Han Yunxi was curious. If it was a banquet at a friends place, she wouldnt make a big fuss.
"Treat poison," Long Feiyes said simply.
This again. Han Yunxi really wanted to tell him, Instead of being your wangfei, why dont I be your poison specialist instead? Faced with such a proposition, her manner remained professional. "What kind of poison?"
"Youll know when you get there."
Han Yunxi nodded. "I want to charge consultation fees."
Long Feiyes face turned disdainful. He didnt even bother to answer but nodded his head before turning to walk away. Only two steps later, he said, "Ill find you tomorrow at Yin hour."
Han Yunxi was about to nod back when she suddenly stopped. Wait a minute!
Yin hour?
Yin hour was the period of time between three and five AM in the morning. Maybe the ancients considered it morning, but to her it was still late night! Waking up early on a winter morning was more painful than anything else, much less going out. Han Yunxis face had turned white by the time she caught up to him. "If were going, lets go tonight! Or at least until after the sun rises tomorrow! I cant go if its that early."
"Why not?" Long Feiye frowned.
Han Yunxi only replied with a single word: "Cold."
"Ill double the payment for your consultation fee."
Long Feiye was very generous, but Han Yunxi was adamant. "Not even if you increase it by ten times."
Only now did Long Feiye turned to face her. "Han Yunxi, are there any poisons you cant treat?"
Surprised, she nevertheless replied honestly. "Thats not easy to say. There are countless varieties of poisons in this world. Even within the same type, theres different subdivisions and classes. Even for the exact same poison, the intensity of the toxin, along with factors like time and health of the victim will affect how to treat it. So theres no way for chenqie to give you a straight answer."
Long Feiye listened carefully before asking, "What if its not a human thats poisoned?"
"Is it an animal?" Han Yunxi was puzzled. Her first thought was of this guys horse. What other animals would he keep? But they didnt have to get up so early just to treat his horse, right?
Long Feiye didnt answer, only said, "Youll know when you get there. Rest early, Ill find you at Yin hour." He left when he was done. Though Han Yunxi chased after him a few steps, she couldnt keep up.
"Hey, whats going on? Exactly whats been poisoned?"
"Explain things clearly!"
"If you dont, then I really wont go!"
No matter how Han Yunxi shouted, Long Feiye didnt raise his head. Very quickly, he disappeared amongst the plants. Han Yunxi stood stunned in place, filled with pent up feelings. What kind of poison is it? What kind of non-human things been poisoned? Did he have to leave me hanging?

Should she even go?
As a senior poisons specialist, she had a strong professional curiosity. In her own time, she always thoroughly researched any and all poisons to come her way. Now that she was in the past, she was even more curious about ancient poisons that didnt exist in modern day.
What kind of secrets was Long Feiye keeping, and what was the situation? The whole night, Han Yunxi tossed and turned in bed before she fell asleep.

Knock knock knock!
The forceful pounding on the door startled Han Yunxi awake after shed just fallen asleep. Looking at her hourglass, she realized it was precisely Yin hour. Han Yunxi put on her thickest clothes but still didnt feel any warmer. When she opened her door, Long Feiyes mountainous form blocked out half the doorframe, yet the piercing cold wind still found its way inside through the corners and cracks. She didnt even take a step outside before her teeth started chattering. Quickly, Han Yunxi ducked aside from the door. Her build was already petite, but her huddled form with her hands in her sleeves and shrinking neck made her seem even tinier than before.
From high up, Long Feiye looked disdainfully at her pathetic form, lip curling. This woman was so weak!
"Still coming?" he asked coldly.
Unexpectedly, Han Yunxi lifted her head. Her face was ashen white, but those bright eyes glimmered with a stubborn brilliance. It was cold enough to make her lip tremble, but her voice remained steady. "Yes, of course Im going! 300 taels and not one less!"
Long Feiye felt his heart gave a subtle jerk in surprise. He couldnt help but admit that this answer went beyond his expectations.
