Chapter 148. Addressing the Poisoning

"Even more awesome?!"

Not knowing if it was just his own imagination, Tony felt that the moment he said that, a dazzling golden light flashed in Master Roshi's eyes.

"How much more awesome is it?"

To the naked eye, Master Roshi's attitude toward Tony changed from his previous indifference to a kind expression, and he approached him with a smile on his face, eager to pursue his question.

"As awesome as it can be."

Seeing Master Roshi's appearance, the corners of Tony's mouth twitched, and his tone grew lighter.

As a well-known philanderer throughout New York, he clearly had a very high ego.

With a confident smile on his face, Tony leaned over to Master Roshi and whispered, "I'd say the best in all of New York..."

Master Roshi: "Hm, hmm, Oh? Oohhh..."

"..."

Looking at the two men exchanging words in front of her, Natasha subconsciously grimaced and turned aside to Ip Man, only to see that the other man had an embarrassed look on his face.

"You're very good and very insightful!"

After hearing Tony's explanation, Roshi covered his nose and pointed at him with a beaming face.

"Thank you, Master."

Tony replied with a smile and looked proud.

"Hmm, since you're so thoughtful, I'll help you with your problem." He nodded and looked at Tony, who was looking pale. Master Roshi changed his indifferent attitude and enthusiastically said so. Finally, he asked, "But that party, is it true?"

"Don't worry, Master. I've made all the arrangements." Struggling to contain his excitement, Tony patted his chest and assured him, "It's scheduled for tonight."

"Shall we start now?"

Hearing Master Roshi's words, Natasha collected her speechless expression and looked at the two with a serious face. She needed to find out how the other party would cure Tony's palladium poisoning. After all, according to the normal course, Tony's physical condition was beyond saving.

"Tonight!?" Hearing Tony's answer, Master Roshi immediately made an excited expression. With an eager look on his face, he said, "Then it looks like I'll have to finish it early, and I'll have to dress up properly later. I can't let the beautiful women down."

At the antique shop, Ryan spoke through Master Roshi's mouth. He looked at Tony, who was standing in front of his clone, hooking the corners of his lips in a wicked smile.

Then, under Tony's expectant gaze, Master Roshi started to reach around his own body, rubbing left and right as if he was looking for something on his skin under the poncho.

Looking at Roshi's face, a strong feeling of unease suddenly came over Tony for some reason.

"Master, what are you...?"

"Just wait a little longer, it doesn't matter, it will be ready soon."

Master Roshi's words spread Tony's unease even further.

"Strange, there's usually quite a lot of it. How come I'm extra clean today?"

While replying to Tony's words, Roshi's hands continued to work their way down his body, gradually starting to move further and further down; it seemed like they were moving towards some indescribable location. Luckily, before he touched the exact position, he stopped his hand and nodded contentedly, "Found it."

"Whew..."

Hearing Master Roshi's words, Tony let out a sigh of relief for some unknown reason.

Then, the immortal standing in front of him pulled his palm out of his poncho, spread it out to reveal a small black pill, and showed it to Tony.

"Okay, eat it."

"..."

Looking at the black pill in Master Roshi's hand, Tony subconsciously raised an eyebrow, a look of rejection subconsciously appearing on his face.

Having witnessed the whole process of making the pill first-hand, it clearly took a great deal of courage for Tony to eat it.

"Master... this is...?"

Glancing at the pill in front of him, Tony had a complicated look on his face.

"Don't look down on this pill. It's called the [Stretch and Stare Pill] as the name suggests, regular people who take it will stretch their legs and stare, or die... but guys like you, taking this [Stretch and Stare Pill] would instead work to bring the dead back to life."

"Are you sure you're not lying?"

Tony looked at Master Roshi with an unmistakable look of disbelief on his face.

How could a mud ball that was obviously rubbed off from someone's body become a cure for his palladium poisoning?

'Sure enough, it won't be eaten so easily.'

Inside the antique shop, Ryan wasn't surprised by Tony's reaction. After all, even in the original TV series, everyone had the same disgusted reaction to the [Stretch and Stare Pill] that Ji Gong had made. But in the end, there was no escaping the law of 'dramatic irony' in plots.

Looking at Tony's resistance, Ryan deliberately controlled his clone, Master Roshi, to make a displeased expression and coldly say, "If you don't want to eat it, I don't care anymore. I'm not the one who's going to die from poisoning."

"You'd better eat the Stretch and Stare pill. Trust me, Master Roshi won't hurt you." From the side, Ip Man also spoke up and advised Tony.

Natasha silently retracted her eyes from the [Stretch and Stare Pill] in Master Roshi's hand. Although Natasha was equally skeptical about the effects of the pill, since it was Tony who was taking it and not herself, she didn't have much to say. Instead, she wanted to know if the so-called "Stretch and Stare Pill" was really as magical as Master Roshi said it was.

With that in mind, Natasha also spoke up and told Tony, "Mr Stark, I think you should at least try it to see if it works."

'Anyway, even if it turns out to be useless, it's just a bit of dirt and sweat, and it won't kill you.'

"..."

Listening to Ip Man and Natasha, Tony looked down at the [Stretch and Stare Pills] in Master Roshi's palm and took a deep breath. Then, he gritted his teeth and grabbed the black [Stretch and Stare Pill] from the palm of his hand and popped it into his mouth. As he swallowed, he forced himself not to think about how the pill was made.

"How is it?"

Seeing Tony swallow the [Stretch and Stare Pill], Natasha immediately asked him about his physical condition at the moment.

"I don't feel anything. Master, you ..."

Frowning and feeling his condition, Tony shook his head and was about to say something to Master Roshi when he suddenly felt an inexplicable force coursing through his body. In the next second, he couldn't control himself and opened his mouth to throw up.

Natasha frowned as she watched Tony vomit. The black liquid coming out of his mouth was clearly the palladium metal that had been eating away at Tony's body.

He fell to the ground and threw up for a while.

Tony wiped the corners of his mouth and felt a relief he had never felt before. Then he felt a distinct tingling sensation in his chest, where the tiny arc reactor was placed.

"Jarvis."

"Take off my armour."

"Yes, Sir."

At Tony's command, Jarvis disassembled the armour he was encased in automatically. Tony removed his own collar and saw tiny veins, flesh and blood begin to grow on his chest, where the miniature arc reactor had been placed.
