Chapter 282 – Elementary Apothecary (7)
Seeing Su Luo’s pursed lips and crestfallen appearance, Nangong Liuyun spoilingly and indulgently rubbed her little head. He reached out and hugged her to him, consolingly saying: “The first time refining pills and succeeding, in the records of this continent, there is only Elder Zi Huo alone and no other. You mustn’t be too broken-hearted.”
“….” Su Luo became silent, as she secretly said in her heart, so as it turned out, Elder Zi Huo also succeeded in refining pills on his first try. No wonder the renowned Elder would later be able to reach the Grandmaster level as an Apothecary.
However, she was also not lacking in this. She had also succeeded in her first time refining, moreover, she was very successful.
Nangong Liuyun saw that Su Luo’s little face was still dejected, taciturn and not speaking. He thought she was in a depressed mood, so his slender finger
hooked her straight, charming and lovable nose: “If you really want to study refining pills, this king will take you to find a teacher. Guaranteed, I will have you enter the refining Apothecary ranks within a month. Okay? You mustn’t be angry anymore.”
“….” Su Luo continued to be uncommunicative. She suddenly thought that the Nangong Liuyun before her eyes was very amusing. Originally, he was aloof and removed, as if everything was within his control, never having lost control of anything. But now, he was working hard at spoilingly and indulgently trying to console her.
“This is also no good? Then you speak, what do you want to do? Could it be that you will insist on this king marrying you today for you to be happy?” Nangong Liuyun feigned embarrassment as he tapped her forehead.
“Pfft——” Su Luo could not hold it back anymore, uttering a ‘pffft’ laughing sound. She also very quickly turned her head away and pushed at Nangong Liuyun, warning him saying, “Don’t talk nonsense, who wants to marry you? Stop
Stop being so narcissistic.”
“Apart from little Luo Luo, this king will not marry anyone else.” Nangong Liuyun seized this opportune moment to express his desires.
“Humph, this young lady is someone you want to marry, want to marry and so you can just marry?” Su Luo tossed her chin up, letting out two snorts. Afterwards, a white jade bottle appeared in her hand and she stuffed it into Nangong Liuyun’s hand.
“What is this?” Nangong Liuyun curiously examined the bottle.
“Open it, take a look and you will find out.” Su Luo urged him to open it without delay.
Nangong Liuyun suspiciously took a quick glance at Su Luo. He hesitated for a moment, before cautiously and slowly pulling out the cork from the mouth of
mouth of the bottle.
Immediately, a never-before-present sweet scent permeated into his nose.
“Hey——” Nangong Liuyun let out a sound of surprise.
From the jade bottle, he poured out a few medicinal pills. Now they lay properly and unmoving in the center of his palm.
His knowledge with regards to medicinal pills was stronger than Su Luo’s by a lot. With only a quick glance, he was able to recognize that these were Spirit Restoration Pills. However, after carefully sniffing and observing it, he also found that this was not merely a Spirit Restoration Pill, because a Spirit Restoration Pill’s aroma wasn’t this rich.
“These medicinal pills….where did they come from?” Nangong Liuyun had a faint trace of a guess in his heart, as a pair of beautiful eyes closely gazed at Su Luo.
Su Luo smugly watched, then threw Nangong Liuyun a glance. If even Nangong Liuyun was this surprised, presumably other people would be even more stunned.
Su Luo had both hands linked behind her back, chin raised, and her whole face had a self-satisfied expression. a self-satisfied expression. She turned her face away and said, “What do you think?”
Even though she had turned her face away, however, the corner of her mouth was pursed in a smile. The corner of her mouth was raised in a huge arc that she was unable to cover up.
Nangong Liuyun’s heart shook, with a gaze kind of like looking at a rare treasure, he stared at Su Luo. A bright luster floated faintly to the surface of his beautiful eyes. He took a deep breath, with both hands holding on to Su Luo’s shoulder. He pulled her back to him and their eyes met.
“Luo girl, tell me, was this really something you refined?” Nangong Liuyun’s voice had an unheard-of seriousness. His pair of eyes roamed around in light and shadows, they were overflowing with light and color, resplendent like starlight.
“Uh-huh, who else could it be?” Su Luo, with both hands behind her back, cast quick sideways glances at Nangong Liuyun.
