993 A request to become friends
“You are?” Sima You Yue and Little Seven went outside the prison, a middle-aged person came to greet them personally .
“I’m Zhan Xing, Zhan Liu’er’s grandfather . ” Zhan Xing smiled, “My immature granddaughter was blind to offend you both, I apologise to you here on her behalf, hope you guys forgive her and don’t fuss over her . ”
Zhan Liu’er’s grandfather? That person who could disqualify Heavenly Sect from the contest?
Now that he was bowing and scraping, was it because he didn’t have the capabilities like what Zhan Liu’er said, or was it because Xuan Qiu’s status was too high that he didn’t dare to offend him?
Her instinct told her it was the latter .
“If she doesn’t come and find a problem with us, we can take it as nothing happened . ” Sima You Yue said .
“Yes yes yes, I will definitely punish that silly girl, thank you for not fussing over her . ” Zhan Xing smiled apologetically .
Sima You Yue walked over to Xuan Qiu, “Why did you come and fetch us?”
“Just nice I heard about it, so I came here . ” Xuan Qiu continued, “Let’s go, I’ve a favor to ask from you . ”
“A favor to ask me?” Sima You Yue was surprised, but she just nodded, “Then let’s talk outside . ”
When they came out of the prison, Xuan Qiu told Zhan Xing, “Vice-president Zhan, since this matter is settled, then I won’t take up more of your time . ”
Zhan Xing was someone who already lived long enough, naturally he understood Xuan Qiu was trying to chase him away . He smiled and said, “Just nice I had something to handle . Then I won’t disturb you guys . Good bye . ”
He cupped his fist to Xuan Qiu and left .
“I know you’re doubtful, let’s leave this place first, then I’ll tell you slowly . ” After Xuan Qiu spoke, he sat on his wheelchair and left .
Sima You Yue and Little Seven followed him, leaving the Alchemist Guild and came to a little courtyard .
“Where is this?” Little Seven questioned .
“My temporary abode . ” Xuan Qiu answered .
At this time, the main door opened from inside, a servant came out and said, “Master, you are back . ”
The servant rushed to Xuan Qiu, held up his wheelchair, with a little strength, he carried the wheelchair over the steps .
“Xuan Qiu, why did you bring us here?” Sima You Yue asked .
“I have a favor to ask from you . ” Xuan Qiu explained .
Although Sima You Yue was curious, seeing how he didn’t intend to put it in details, she could only follow him in the main door .
“You don’t have to be nervous, I won’t ask you to do something outrageous . ” Xuan Qiu continued, “Just that I heard something, so I need you guys to help out . ”
“What can I help you with?” Sima You Yue asked .
“You will know when we reach there . ”
Xuan Qiu brought her to the backyard, other than the flower mass, there were two trees planted in the flower pots . Silver tree trunk, emerald green needle-leaves, it was bloomed with bits and pieces of flowers .
“See those two little trees over there?” Xuan Qiu asked .
Sima You Yue nodded, thinking that he couldn’t see, she replied, “I see it . ”
“Do you recognise what it is?”
“Is this the Silver Rooted Sago Palm that is extinct?” Sima You Yue probed .
“You’re indeed knowledgeable!” Xuan Qiu laughed, he wasn’t surprised that Sima You Yue recognised those two trees .
Silver Rooted Sago Palm was seen as unprocessed medicinal herbs in the ancient times by Alchemist, it was as good as Golden Snake Fruit . But for some unknown reasons, it slowly became extinct .
Didn’t think that Xuan Qiu actually had two of these!
“These flowers are so beautiful! It must be delicious!” Little Seven drooled as she stared at those flowers .
“Although the flower from Silver Rooted Sago Palm can be used as medicine, the effect wouldn’t be as good as the fruit itself . But after I found them, I’ve only seen flowers without bearing fruit . ” Xuan Qiu said regretfully .
“Why? Was it because you planted them in a small pot?”
“Hehe . ” After Xuan Qiu heard what Little Seven said, laughed lightly, shaked his head and said, “Those two are spatial vessels, the soil inside is definitely enough . ”
“Then why?” Little Seven became more curious .
“Because their pollen wasn’t disseminated . ” Sima You Yue said .
“What does it mean by wasn’t disseminated?” Little Seven never saw a flower bearing fruits before, so she didn’t know what was the use of it .
Sima You Yue explained it in a simpler term and she understood immediately .
“I didn’t know that it’ll be so troublesome for a plant to bear fruits . But aren’t there any bees here?” Little Seven walked over to the Silver Rooted Sago Palm and caught a bee just by extending her hands .
Other than the one in her hand, there were a few dancing around the flowers .
“The common bee is useless . ” Xuan Qiu continued, “We’ve already tried with many different types of bee . ”
Sima You Yue somehow understood why he looked for her .
“Coming to Cloud Sea City this time, one of the motive was to ask the people from Alchemist Guild to take a look, Song Chang Jie said that scarlet bee was needed to disseminate the pollen of Silver Rooted Sago Palm, then scarlet bee became lesser, that’s why Silver Rooted Sago Palm slowly became extinct . ”
Once Sima You Yue heard him mention ‘scarlet bee’, she was certained why he looked for her . But how did he know that she had scarlet bees?
Following which, she thought that she met him in the garden, he would definitely send someone to search her identity . Having to know that she used scarlet bees before wasn’t something that was difficult to do .
At least, to someone like him, it wasn’t difficult .
Xuan Qiu watched Sima You Yue and asked, “Are you willing to help me?”
“As a condition to keep it a secret?” Sima You Yue raised her eyebrows .
Xuan Qiu shaked his head, “As a request of becoming friends . ”
“Friends?” Sima You Yue looked at him doubtfully .
With his status, why would he become friends with others so easily?
“Why, are you avoiding me just because I’m handicapped?” Xuan Qiu hid a smile at the corner of his lips, mocking himself .
“No . I just feel that your status must be high, why would someone like you want to be friends with nobody like me . ” Sima You Yue explained .
“I told you, your smell is clean . ” Xuan Qiu continued, “Just like you said, I have little friends, but I like clean people . ”
“My hands are polluted by a lot of blood . Don’t you smell blood?” Sima You Yue said .
“No . ” Xuan Qiu continued, “How, are you willing to help me with this?”
Sima You Yue laughed and shifted her eyes to the two Silver Rooted Sago Palm, with telekinesis, over ten scarlet bees flew out .
Since he already knew she had them, it wouldn’t hurt to help him . Also, he helped to keep her secret .
Those scarlet bees then flew to the Silver Rooted Sago Palm and fluttered around the flowers .
“After it bears fruits, can I see it?”
“Okay . ” Although Xuan Qiu couldn’t see, with his divine knowledge, he knew that the scarlet bees are collecting honey, the smile on the corner of his lips deepened . “What a pity that I can’t see, if not I would like to see what they look like . ”
Sima You Yue thought and said, “I’m also a doctor, would you be willing to let me take a look?”
Although she didn’t know his identity yet, since he was someone even the Alchemist Guild didn’t dare to offend, it would be better to make friends .
