Jin Ning immediately darted to her side, and noticed an old man lying down on the ground, his snow white robes dirtied by the soil and grime. His face was pale, and he was breathing slightly.
"Let's help him up,"Jin Ning tells Shu Lian, and they quickly placed their items down on the ground, before supporting the old man up.
"Wait Miss, what about our items?"Shu Lian asks, looking worriedly at the bags. Jin Ning shook her head and responded, "We will get them later. Saving him is more important!"
Shu Lian nodded, and the two quickly brought the old man back to the Lotus Manor.
"Bring him to the main hall"Jin Ning instructs some servants, who quickly carried the old man. She then followed after them, as they gently placed the old man on a chair.
"Daughter, who is tha-Huh!"
Father Jin was surprised, as he quickly shifted towards the unconscious figure. He quietly surveyed the old man, before his eyes widened and he looked at Jin Ning in shock, "Where did you find him?"
Jin Ning told him the location, and Father Jin furrowed his eyebrows, and informs her, "He is actually the Pure Spring Sect Head's father. He's usually relatively powerful, how did he end up unconscious?"
Hearing that, Jin Ning was shocked. She didn't expect the old man to have such a powerful identity.
"It is important that we save him!"Father Jin says anxiously, as he gazed quickly at the group of servants.
"Ah Fa, Ah Fu! Get Physician Yi!"
The two respective servants bowed their heads and quickly sprinted out of the door.
Not long after, an elegant looking middle-aged man hurried into the room, and frowned upon seeing the unconscious old man.
"Physician Yi, great that you are here!"Father Jin heaves a sigh of relief, as Physician Yi nods at him, before gazing at the servants by the side.
"Quick, place him on a bed!"
The old man was soon transferred to a guest bed, and Physician Yi hovered above him, while checking his wrist, and observing his face.
"It looks like he over-exterted himself while honing his spiritual powers. Eh, to treat him I would need these herbs..."
The herbs were quickly gathered, and Physician Yi speedily treated him.
"Alright! This should be all. However, be sure to feed him this herbal concoction every two hours until he wakes up,"He smiles, as he passes Father Jin a list.
"Many thanks, Physician!"Father Jin cups his hands, and Physician Yi waved his hand and responded with a gentle smile, "No problem, Master Jin! It's my pleasure to serve you."
The two men then engaged in a brief conversation before Physician Yi left.
Father Jin heaved a heavy sigh as he glanced worriedly at the old man, and gestured Jin Ning to follow him out to the courtyard.
"Daughter, be sure to not offend him when you meet him later! He's powerful, and the Pure Spring Sect is entirely loyal to him,"He warns Jin Ning, before continuing, "You can greet him as Elder Bai later. Now go and rest! You must be tired from the shopping."
"What about you, Father?"She asks, as he smiles and responds, "I'm going to take care of Elder Bai. I can only feel assured if I do this task myself."
He then ruffled her hair lovingly, and turned to walk towards the main hall when Jin Ning ran up to him and said, "No, Father. I'll take care of Elder Bai. You should rest! Quick, go and take a nap. You need to manage palace duties later on, don't you?"
"No, Father is alright-"
"No, I insist."
After constant persuading and pushing by Jin Ning, Father Jin finally relented and retreated to his bedroom. Jin Ning then made her way to Elder Bai's side, and studied the herbal concoction.
"1 Grey Wildstar, 2 scoops of grinded Fire Fruit..."
She recited the list to herself quietly as she proceeded to make the medicine. Since Physician Yi had laid out the medical ingredients neatly, it was very simple to make the medicine since she just had to mix the ingredients together.
Soon, a brown mixture surfaced, and Jin Ning propped Elder Bai's head up on a pillow before gently feeding him the medicine. She then repeated this every two hours, while reading books that Shu Lian brought to her.
Suddenly, there was a movement from Elder Bai. His eyes groggily opened, and he quickly sat up with the help of the bedframe. His eyes darted around the room warily, before his gaze landed on Jin Ning.
"Elder Bai, you've woken up!"She says in surprise, as she did not expect him to regain consciousness only after five hours. "I'll call my Father. Please stay here, and do not move too much as you just recovered."
Not long after, Father Jin rushed to the main hall together with Jin Ning. Elder Bai studied Father Jin, before exclaiming, "Lotus Lord Jin?"
"Yes, I am. How are you feeling Elder Bai?"He asks respectfully, as Elder Bai smiled warmly and responded, "I am fine. Thankfully you lot took good care of this old man, otherwise I will suffer longer."
Elder Bai's gaze then landed on Jin Ning.
"This is your daughter?"Elder Bai questions, as Father Jin nods proudly.
"Yes, she's my precious daughter!"
Elder Bai quietly surveyed Jin Ning, before beckoning for her,"Child, come closer. Let Elder Bai read your pulse!"
Jin Ning looked at Father Jin, who smilingly encouraged her to move forward.
She then approached Elder Bai, and stretched out her wrist. He gingerly read her pulse, and shock took over his calm expression.
Upon seeing his face, Father Jin became worried and asked anxiously,"What is the problem, Elder Bai?"
