This eventually let a disciple of Houyi know that this person is a fengmeng, he thought of the immortal medicine and then become immortal himself. On August 15, Hou Yi took his disciples out, but when he pretended to be sick, he stayed behind. In the evening, he rushed into Hou Yi's house with a sword and threatened Chang'e to hand over the elixir. He turned the box upside down and found the elixir.
