Chapter 381 - Finally Found It
A stench started coming towards Zhaoming’s direction, almost getting him to vomit- he wondered what the hell that was supposed to be, and why it smelled so horrid. He threw the trash bag aside, thinking that it was where the smell was coming from…
He stood up and found that it still smelled.
Zhaoming turned around and finally realized that the smell was coming from the pill in his hand.
“Why does this pill smell like this..?” Zhaoming’s insides churned at the horrid smell- was this what it smelled like before?
Zhaoming thought about it more deeply and failed to remember what the pill smelled like before he crushed it under his foot- he’d been so excited over mocking Xiaobo that he simply didn’t care what the pill smelled like.
“This is probably it.” Zhaoming consoled himself with a nod, since this dog poop color was just too similar to that of the Pill of Life Extension and Toxin Cleansing- he’d only taken one look at it when it was still in his hand before he crushed it. He didn’t remember what it smelled like, or what the color looked like.
Zhaoming carefully cupped the dog poop in his hands and sneaked back into the ballroom when he was sure no one was looking.
He came in and found himself greeted by a question coming from his grandpa’s gaze- Zhaoming nodded to indicate that he’d retrieved the Pill of Life Extension and Toxin Cleansing successfully.
Miracle Doctor Kang exhaled, relieved- if it really were a piece of treasure then it’d simply be too regretful if it just ended up in the trash like that. He made sure to give Liu Tianyi a call at night and ask if it actually existed or not.
Tianyi had wanted to invite Lin Yi to his car, but helplessly found that he’d come in his own already, and there wasn’t anything he could do about that.
Lin Yi drove Tang Yin, Xiaobo, Fen, and Xuemin back to Songshan, dropped Tang Yin off at the hospital, Fen home before getting to the business talk with Xuemin and Xiaobo.
Xiaobo had wanted to be with Fen, worried that she might be in a bad mood after meeting Zhaoming.
But Fen heard that Lin Yi had something important to talk to Xiaobo about it- she wouldn’t want to take up Xiaobo’s time.
She shook her head at Xiaobo, a smile on her face. “Xiaobo, Lin Yi Bro’s looking to talk to you about something important- you don’t have to be with me or anything, I’m fine! I’m feeling a lot better now.”
“Are you sure?” Xiaobo was still feeling uneasy- after all, Zhaoming had hurt her deeply. This wasn’t something that could just be shrugged off.
“Haha, I’m waiting for you to avenge me one day!” Fen smiled. “I won’t forget what you said today!”
“Alright, wait for me- I promise you I can do it!” Xiaobo held his fist tightly.
Lin Yi smiled- him giving Xiaobo a stage to perform required Xiaobo’s own consent. If he didn’t take things seriously then letting him take on the position of Lin Yi’s representative would only make Xiaobo someone who always relied on someone else, muddling through his days.
Xiaobo being filled with his own spirit, however, was a different matter.
As long as the thought was there along with the effort, success was inevitable. As long as he had confidence and a dream- the dream would come true!
“Tang Yin, I’m not going up then- Grandpa Guan’s talked to them about your dad’s surgery already. I can’t do anything about bones, but I can give him some medicine to hasten the recovery of his wounds after the surgery’s done.” Lin Yi said as Tang Yin was getting off the car. “I’ll get them to you Monday when the surgery starts- I don’t have them with me right now.”
“Yeah… Thanks.” Tang Yin nodded without saying no. She didn’t know when it had started, but she was slowly getting used to this… used to how Lin Yi looked after her, how he took care of her.
Xiaobo tried his best to hold himself back until Tang Yin left the car. “Boss, you’re saying that it’s similar to my second grandpa’s Golden Creation medicine?!”
There was only one medicine in the market that could rapidly heal an injury- and that was Miracle Doctor Kang’s Golden Creation medicine! It was only natural that Xiaobo would find it shocking that Lin Yi had a medicine at that level in his possession.
“Aah, it should be the same. I don’t know what his looks like, or what recipe it uses, since I’ve never seen it before, so I don’t wanna jump into conclusions- but the effects should be more or less the same.” Lin Yi nodded.
Xiaobo was stunned- he now understood why Lin Yi had that confidence, telling him that he could support Xiaobo waging a war against Zhaoming and his second grandpa’s family!
He had some doubts when Lin Yi told him he’d make him fight his second grandpa on his level, but still announced his declaration proudly so as to not embarrass himself.
Xiaobo had been concerned if his bold words would ultimately turn into a joke, too- he no longer had those concerns anymore!
If Lin Yi had something similar to Golden Creation’s recipe, then he was more than justified to be on the same playing field as his second grandpa! Miracle Doctor Kang’s medicine company, after all, was earning money using only Golden Creation!
“You’re really so amazing, boss! Where’d you get the recipe? My second grandpa’s recipe is so crazily hidden even my own grandpa doesn’t know about it!” Xiaobo sighed as he spoke. “My grandpa’s not smart, too- he didn’t even make sure he knew where the recipe was placed, and my second grandpa just went and stole it!”
“I created the recipe myself.” Lin Yi shrugged- Xiaobo was about to become his representative soon, anyway. He should be in on core secrets like this.
“Created it… yourself?” Xiaobo’s eyes were opened wide in shock- Lin Yi was capable of creating a recipe like that? How insanely amazing did one have to be to do something like that?
“Alright, make sure to keep that to yourself- don’t tell anyone” Lin Yi patted Xiaobo’s shoulder. “I have some personal reasons for not wanting to make an appearance, so to the public, this company belongs to you and Grandpa Guan.”
“Don’t worry, boss! I won’t tell!” Xiaobo nodded, moved that Lin Yi trusted him so much he’d make him his representative. “I won’t tell even Fen…”
“Fen’s fine…” Lin Yi sweated. “I still have to do something about Fen’s leg sooner or later, so it’s alright if you tell her. As long as it’s kept in the circle of our own people it’ll be fine.”
“Boss, I think that the best decision I’ve made my entire life was that one time I went up to the rooftop to fight alongside you, caught up in the heat of the moment and everything…” Xiaobo contemplated. “If it weren’t for that recklessness you wouldn’t be looking after me like this at all…”
Xiaobo wasn’t one who didn’t understand his position- he knew there wasn’t anything good about him, so that he wouldn’t really be able to provide Lin Yi with help at all… If he had to list one thing that he had that impressed Lin Yi, then it really was just that one time at the rooftop…
But Xiaobo’s words rang true- it really was because of that hot-headedness that day, the recklessness that led him to stand up for Lin Yi… It was what led Lin Yi to the decision that he’d become brothers with Kang Xiaobo!
On a new transfer student’s first day of school, there weren’t a lot of people who’d stand up for someone like that simply out of a bit of honor. Xiaobo’s decision had involved recklessness and hot-headedness, but it moved Lin Yi regardless.
