Chapter 703 – The matter of accepting a disciple (3)
However, before the servants could leave, Su Xi, who was dressed up properly like a new person, appeared in the hall.
“Daddy, you called for me?” Su Xi walked up and intimately wrapped her hands around Su Zian’s arm.
“Xi’er, come over to pay your respects to Apothecary Leng. Just now, Apothecary Leng was looking for you.” Su Zian pulled Su Xi along to greet Apothecary Leng.
“Xi’er is very mischievous and not thoughtful, could it be that Apothecary Leng likes this…..” Su Zian said while smiling.
Su Xi was pulled along by Su Zian and was just about to kneel in front of Apothecary Leng; but, Apothecary Leng suddenly stood up.
“Su Zian, are you playing tricks on this apothecary?” Apothecary Leng was displeased as he glared at Su Zian.
“Eh?” Su Zian was very puzzled. What was wrong with Apothecary Leng? What did he do wrong?
“Why would this apothecary be fond of this girl? Where did this come from? You must explain it to this apothecary clearly!” Apothecary Leng’s attitude was always eccentric and irascible, towards people who were unpleasant to his eyes, he would never show mercy or give them face.
“This……” Su Zian’s expression was bewildered.
Wasn’t this what you, as an elder, had said yourself earlier? This elder had praised that Xi’er was good with every word and forbade me from bullying her. Why was he going back on his words now?
Su Zian’s heart was extremely puzzled, however, he could not say it so bluntly with these words. As a result, he could only timidly say: “Elder, the person you wanted to see……. isn’t Xi’er?”
“What Xi’er, Dong’er (1), this apothecary doesn’t know any of them!!” Apothecary Leng had his hands folded behind his back, then arrogantly and childishly turned his head away.
The corner of Su Zian’s mouth immediately had a suffering expression, but he also became more doubtful: In the end, where did it go wrong?
When Su Xi heard Apothecary Leng’s words, she immediately became unhappy.
What Xi’er, Dong’er? Wasn’t Apothecary Leng treating her just like any stray cat or dog? How could he be so disrespectful to her?
Su Xi scowled and coldly said: “Apothecary Leng, how could you say it like that!”
Su Zian hurriedly covered Su Xi’s mouth!
This loathsome girl had truly dared to say it!
Who was Apothecary Leng, he was an Elite Apothecary oh! Ever since Grandmaster Rong Yun had arrived, everybody had found out Apothecary Leng’s other identity, which was Grandmaster Rong Yun’s first disciple.
Su Xi, this girl, actually dared to contradict him, did she not want to live?
The corner of Apothecary Leng’s mouth had a taunting sneer: “This is that whatever Xi’er? Tsk, tsk, tsk, how can this apothecary think highly of her? Su Zian, are your eyes decorations or is your brain an ornament?”
The servants outside simultaneously sucked in a breath of cold air.
Apothecary Leng was truly egotistical and sharp, his poisonous tongue could cause a person’s death.
Their family’s Master was the Great General that protects the nation, when was he ever pointed at and cursed in the face by others?
Speaking of Su Zian right now, his heart was angry as well as furious. But, he could only endure it silently as he squeezed out a rigid smile at the corner of his mouth: “Then, if it is like this, Apothecary Leng has identified the wrong person. Our Su Manor does not have the person you are looking for.”
Su Zian rigidly clenched his fists, proving that his anger inside was rolling over and over.
Apothecary Leng pointed at Su Zian with one hand, appearing to be very resentful of Su Zian for not meeting his expectations: “This apothecary just knows that you do not have good eyesight, and especially reminded you of this. However, I never expected that it’s not that you don’t have eyesight, rather, you are totally blind!”
“Apothecary Leng, our Su Manor truly does not have……” Su Zian also had a temper, and also, his temper was not good. But, in front of Apothecary Leng, he could only continue to endure.
“Bullshit! Isn’t Su Luo your daughter? Isn’t she in your manor? You would dare to go so far as to lie in front of this apothecary’s face! Su Zian, you have big guts!” Apothecary Leng glared at him.
Su Zian suddenly became motionless as if struck by lightning.
1) Xi’er, Dong’er: This is a play on Su Xi’s given name Xi (?), which in Chinese, is pronounced the same as the word for West. Dong is ? the Chinese for East. So Apothecary Leng is saying ‘what East child West child’.
Chapter 704 – The matter of accepting a disciple (4)
Su Luo knew Apothecary Leng? The person Apothecary Leng was searching for was Su Luo? Then, it means that…… he had made a mistake! Before, the person Apothecary Leng cared about was basically not Su Xi, rather, it was Su Luo, who he had constantly neglected!!!!!!!!
Thinking about this, Su Zian’s brain was stupefied. He foolishly stood there, not knowing how to respond.
However, Apothecary Leng would not let him off so easily, with a cold and vengeful voice, he said: “From my point of view, based on your moral conduct, you really do not have the qualifications to be her father! Su girl being so clever, quick-witted and lovely, how could she have a father like you? You have really humiliated her!”
These words……were simply too sharp and too merciless. Compared to directly slapping Su Zian’s mouth, it was even more shameful.
Su Zian opened his mouth, wanting to talk, but discovered that, no matter what, he could not express anything.
Hearing the meaning behind Apothecary Leng’s words, then, from the beginning, the person he favored was Su Luo, right? What’s going on? Could it be that it was Su Luo who was able to invite Apothecary Leng to the manor before? But why was it that she didn’t say anything?
“That girl……that damned girl actually did not mention even a single word!” When Su Zian recalled Su Luo’s manner of an observer that was as light as clouds and gentle as a breeze, his heart ignited into a flaming rage.
Originally, Su Xi stood on one side with an expressionless face. Now, hearing Apothecary Leng’s words, immediately, she was no longer calm.
“Apothecary Leng, how could you speak about my daddy like this? Su Luo, that slut, how is she fit to be daddy’s daughter? Daddy treated her as if she does not exist, as he ought to………”
Apothecary Leng’s ice-cold eyes shot towards Su Xi. A frightened feeling suddenly appeared in Su Xi’s heart.
She unconsciously fell back a step and could not continue speaking that sentence.
The corner of Apothecary Leng’s mouth raised into a cynical cold sneer, “Mistakenly taking the fish in your eyes as a real pearl, it’s no wonder that Su Manor is not peaceful, and declined to this degree.”
Su Zian clenched his fists tightly, the muscles on his face trembling because of his emotions.
Apothecary Leng silently snorted: “Why haven’t you already quickly gone to fetch that girl? My Master is currently waiting in the throne room to accept his last personal disciple. If this opportunity was missed, humph, humph!”
Su Zian’s eyes suddenly opened very wide, and said in a stunned tone: “ Isn’t Grandmaster Rong Yun going to accept the Jade Lake’s fairy as his disciple? Why would he accept another disciple?”
Apothecary Leng coldly snorted in displeasure: “Who said that he would accept Li Yaoyao? This kind of rumor and you still believe it?”
“But……” In truth, Su Zian actually believed it, “But, in this world, besides Jade Lake’s fairy’s unparalleled beauty, who else could enter Grandmaster Rong Yun’s eyes?”
Su Zian’s words really represented most people’s point of view.
Who knew, Apothecary Leng actually sneered twice, waved his hand, and, not saying anything else, only said: “Call out Su Luo, that girl, opportunity only knocks once.”
At this moment, Su Zian still felt that it was too difficult to believe.
Su Luo was able to get Apothecary Leng’s recognition, this already greatly exceeded his expectations, and stupefied his entire person.
Now, Apothecary Leng went as far as to say that Su Luo, that girl, might replace the Jade Lake’s fairy?
If these words were to spread out, who would believe it? In any case, he didn’t believe it.
Su Zian repeatedly smiled bitterly: “Apothecary Leng, don’t joke around……” In any case, Su Zian could not believe it.
“Does it look as if this apothecary is joking with you?!” Apothecary Leng rolled his eyes at him in annoyance, “Speak less nonsense, quickly, I order you to call the person out.”
Under the repeated urging of Apothecary Leng, Su Zian finally ordered someone to ask for Su Luo to come.
Seeing Su Luo, the first words that came out from Su Zian’s mouth was complaints: “Luoluo, why didn’t you say that your relationship with Apothecary Leng was so good?”
