Chapter 127 – To adapt to one’s taste (4)
Su Luo decided on this«Rebirth of Flesh Pill Recipe», after she memorized the words, she withdrew from her space and returned to reality.
Because only her spirit went in, even if the task was accomplished in front of everyone, nobody would be able to see any flaw among her actions to be suspicious off.
Su Luo’s hand grasped the brush and, with a focused expression, she effortlessly started to write. Once she wrote about one third of the recipe, the corner of her eyes perked up and her lips formed a devious and sly smile.
She stopped writing and picked up the paper that could move the heart of Apothecary Leng. She blew on the paper to dry the ink-marks left by the brush. She quickly blow-dried the ink-marks.
Su Luo called to a servant that was passing by with a look that screamed don’t question my order and said. “Deliver this to your master Apothecary Leng.”
The servant frowned.
Ordinarily there inevitably would be guests who want to see Apothecary Leng. They would secretly pass their business card through the servants to deliver to Apothecary Leng. However according to his knowledge, none of these people ever succeeded, furthermore they had to do it shouldering a huge risk.
Therefore that servant without a second thought refused.
However Su Luo only gave an enigmatic smile and said. “Don’t refuse so quickly, don’t you know, your chance to achieve meteoric success of a lifetime is certainly depended on what’s written on this paper.” After she finished speaking, Su Luo immediately stuffed a heavy silver nugget in the servant’s sleeves.
Placing the icing on cakes, regardless of it being modern or ancient times would always be applicable.
The servant was also very bold, he didn’t have to think very long before nodding his head. He securely folded his sleeves together and quickly left.
Watching his back as he left, Su Luo’s smile harbored some malicious intentions.
In the midst of this encounter, Steward Xu had a puzzled and unconvinced expression while watching Su Luo. Only now, did he doubtfully inquire. “Miss Su, you have such certainty of the outcome?”
What exactly was written on that piece of paper? Steward Xu was very intrigued.
Su Luo lifted the teacup while showing no signs of nerves, she took a sip of tea. After putting the cup down, her eyelids dropped slightly while her mouth curved into a smile. “It’s not me with the assurance, rather that sheet with the pill recipe is determined. Does Steward Xu know what the most precious treasure is to Apothecary Leng?”
Steward Xu earnestly said. “This is not difficult to guess, it definitely is Primeval Pill Recipes.” With regards to Apothecaries, all of them had a strong longing for Primeval Pill Recipes.
However, Primeval Pill Recipes had already been lost on the continent. Even the parts that were not lost, was hidden within the control of large and influential families. It certainly would not exist within the hands of ordinary Apothecaries.
Su Luo pursed her lips and smiled, her smile was profoundly mysterious.
Just when Steward Xu was hesitating on what to say, suddenly the sound of hurried footsteps came from outside. Following that the door to the room was urgently pushed open.
The person that came was none other than Steward Leng who had previously glanced at Su Luo with dislike.
Only gloom could be seen on his grumpy face, those arrogant and critical eyes swept Su Luo a quick glance, while haughtily asked her. “Was it you who delivered a slip of paper to our master?”
Su Luo’s gaze was unperturbed. Her snow white skin gave off an icy and distant impression. She raised an eyebrow at him, not denying nor admitting anything.
Steward Leng coldly smiled and sneered. “Didn’t expect that you, such a girl, would have such a scheme planned. Let me tell you. You are very lucky, for our master had agreed to see you. Now come with me!”
Steward Leng’s attitude toward Su Luo was full of disdain and even seemed to hold her in contempt.
Now his condescending manner was like a noble giving charity to Su Luo who happened to be poor.
Although Steward Xu was furious at Steward Leng’s attitude, after hearing that Apothecary Leng had agreed to see Su Luo, the corner of his eyes and eyebrows crinkled into a joyful expression. This means it was entirely possible that Apothecary Leng could potentially personally act to save a life.
However, Su Luo’s behavior made his eyes pop open.
Su Luo’s face remained calm, her icy glass like beautiful eyes indifferently glanced at Steward Leng. She turned toward Steward Xu and serenely said. “We have been here for quite some time and don’t know how the sick person is doing in our family. Let’s go back home and take a look first.”
Chapter 128 – To adapt to one’s taste (5)
Having finished speaking, she unhurriedly turned around and walked away, her footsteps were exceptionally firm, the view of her back gave an extremely decisive feeling.
Steward Leng would never have thought that Su Luo would walk away. Moreover, when she said she would leave, she had directly and efficiently left,, without a trace of dragging her feet.
For a period of time, he was somewhat stunned. Among the people who came to seek treatment, who wasn’t grovelling or trembling with fear? This loathsome girl had no discerning eyes, unable to tell good from bad!
Steward Leng had a gloomy look on his face, and coldly sneered at Su Luo. He loudly threatened: “Once you walk out of this door, you’d better not expect our master to personally undertake the task of medical treatment! You’d better think carefully!”
This type of threat, for one hundred tries, was one hundred percent effective.
But, this time was an exception.
Su Luo’s figure paused, she glanced back and smiled in a charming and touching manner. “Steward Leng, I look forward to seeing you again.”
Finished speaking, with an indifferent expression, Su Luo turned around and resolutely walked out.
In fact, Steward Leng really wanted to grab Su Luo and drag her to see Apothecary Leng. However, he didn’t know why this calm and tranquil Su Luo gave him a strong feeling of deterrence. It made him acknowledge her, a reverence that prevented him from even resisting her.
Steward Leng coldly snorted, darkly cursing her: “You loathsome girl who doesn’t know what’s good for you, if you have the guts to walk out of these doors, then you’d better not come back crying and begging to enter again.”
Since he was done cursing at her, while heading towards Apothecary Leng’s refining room, he also tried to come up with ideas to tattletale on this loathsome girl to get her in trouble.
Su Luo walked out of the door. She saw Steward Xu manner, which indicated he was hesitant to speak, and she just gave him a smile. “It’s okay, relax. We will just wait here for Apothecary Leng.”
Wait for Apothecary Leng? Miss Su, you could actually say that, even now? Was Apothecary Leng someone who, when a person wanted to see, would actually get to see? Much less even expecting him to personally come out?
It was said that for more than ten years, Apothecary Leng hadn’t taken even half a step outside of his manor, okay? Steward Xu really wanted to yell at Su Luo, but seeing her pretty and delicate manner, he really hadn’t the heart to do so.
Such an opportunity like this that was hard to come by, was wasted by her! Steward Xu panted with rage and turned his face away.
The corner of Su Luo’s mouth arched up slightly, a smiling expression flashed through her eyes.
Her heart was very certain.
Since the haughty and arrogant Steward Leng could personally invite her, then it was enough proof that «Rebirth of Flesh Pill Recipe» had already fallen into Apothecary Leng’s hands.
Since that half a page of only a third of Primeval Pill Recipe had already fallen into Apothecary Leng’s hands. With Apothecary Leng’s gaze, why should she worry that the other side wouldn’t know what it was?
Currently, as the seller at the marketplace, she, Su Luo, was the real boss. No matter how rude and unreasonable Apothecary Leng was, what could he possibly do to her? He would definitely still come and beseech her!
Su Luo’s mouth turned up into a cold and cruel smile. She was looking forward to the raging tempest that Steward Leng was about to encounter.
Speaking of Steward Leng who was rejected by Su Luo. Afterwards, he had taken large strides towards Apothecary Leng’s refining room. However, before he could even knock on the door to ask permission to enter, those eternally closed doors abruptly opened. At the door was an impatient and deeply worried face.
This was a forty to fifty years old middle-aged man. He had a scrawny figure, and his hair and eyebrows were a complete mess. He had a manner that showed he didn’t care about his appearance. The white robe on his body had stains all over it. He looked somewhat dishevelled and unkempt.
Before waiting for Apothecary Leng to speak, Steward Leng had already started to complain. “Master, that loathsome girl doesn’t know what’s good for her. This servant, under your orders, went to invite her, but who would have thought that she would unexpectedly stand up, turn and leave! She was beyond hateful!”
Apothecary Leng’s eyes suddenly became severe, he grabbed Steward Leng by the collar, while grinding his teeth, asked. “What did you say!?!?!”
Steward Leng thought Apothecary Leng was infuriated because his pride had been provoked. He was overflowing with joy, which increased his courage to make up something more sinister, even though initially there was nothing to complain about. “That loathsome girl also said… She said that there was nothing amazing about you. Not wanting to meet is fine, but she never placed you in her eyes as being worthy of respect!”
