Chapter 707 – The matter of accepting a disciple (7)
If it was some other person who said that Eastern Ling Empire could not compare to the Western Jin Empire, these civil and military ministers would definitely beat him with shoes or wooden planks. But, the one who said it was Grandmaster Rong Yun oh……….
Then this was a fact.
The Eastern Ling Empire’s civil and military minister’s hearts were sullen, but they had no choice but to accept it.
Just at this moment, Apothecary Leng led Su Luo quickly towards the throne room.
Grandmaster Rong Yun’s disciple, who would dare to block?
As a result, Apothecary Leng was unimpeded and unhindered as they arrived in the throne room.
But before Su Luo saw Grandmaster Rong Yun, she used a small trick.
She fished out the little divine dragon who was sleeping soundly in her space and carried him in her arms.
Apothecary Leng puzzlingly gave her a glance, but Su Luo only smilingly explained: “If this happens, then your master would at least give some face.”
Because he had not seen Grandmaster Rong Yun’s preferential treatment towards the little divine dragon personally, so Apothecary Leng remain puzzled.
At this moment, they had already stepped into the throne room.
“Your disciple pays his respects to Master.” Apothecary Leng respectfully kneeled down to make his salutations.
Apothecary Leng’s hair was grizzled and seemed aged, but he would call a man who was in his twenties, ‘Master’. Also, his expression was very respectful.
This kind of scene, in other’s eyes, had an indescribable strangeness.
However, Grandmaster Rong Yun and Apothecary Leng were already accustomed to it.
Grandmaster Rong Yun’s expression was the same as before as he nodded slightly. His gaze moved over to Apothecary Leng and cast a faint glance at Su Luo.
To say it more accurately, he cast a glance at the little divine dragon in Su Luo’s arms.
Sure enough, his expression became slightly gentler.
Apothecary Leng looked at the row of gloomy apothecaries, and then looked at the medicinal pill tossed on the side, understanding flashing through his eyes.
It seemed that none of these court apothecaries were chosen by Master.
Apothecary Leng bowed and said: “Master, this disciple brought a person to see you. This girl’s gift in refining pills is indeed not bad. If Master sees it, then would certainly like it.”
Su Luo just so happened to move forward to pay her respects, but saw the corner of the Jade Lake’s fairy’s mouth raise into a smile.
The Jade Lake’s fairy gently looked at Apothecary Leng, her tone bathed in the autumn wind and extremely sweet-sounding: “The Apothecary Selection is already finished. Apothecary Leng, you have arrived too late.”
Anger flashed through Apothecary Leng’s eyes.
If it was any other person, no matter what, they would give the Jade Lake’s fairy some face. Unfortunately, Apothecary Leng’s temper was extremely eccentric.
If he liked someone, then naturally, he would be extremely good to them.
If he loathed someone, then naturally, he would be ruthless to them.
He treated Su Luo well, then, he naturally loathed Li Yaoyao.
As a result, Leng Yan sent her an unrestrained glare: “Who are you? In front of Master, how are you qualified to speak? Move to the side with you!”
Jade Lake’s fairy completely did not anticipate that Leng Yan would be this rudely blunt. For a split second, she was dumbfounded, then another second passed, and her clear autumn eyes became misty with water, as if she was wronged but could only endure.
At this moment, almost everybody used a condemning stare to glare at Apothecary Leng.
Leng Yan’s heart became even angrier.
He was clearly speaking the truth, yet this loathsome girl, without touching her, would cry so easily? It was simply that the more he saw her, the more he disliked her.
Apothecary Leng snorted once: “Who are trying to fool with your acting? Aren’t you just afraid that Su Luo’s innate gift is better than yours, and as a result, you wouldn’t dare to compete with her. So this way, you deliberately block her? Stop pretending to be innocent!”
Su Luo’s heart truly could not endure it anymore and gave Apothecary Leng a round of applause.
Apothecary Leng was worthy of being called a natural mediator. His words were sharp and did not beat around the bush.
These words were blunt, however, it really said what was in the Jade Lake’s fairy’s thoughts.
“I didn’t!” Li Yaoyao, whose thoughts were exposed, had a secret hatred flash through her eyes.
Only now did she understand……
Chapter 708 – The matter of accepting a disciple (8)
With regards to Leng Yan, this kind of blunt asshole, putting on an act would only incur additional ruthless attacks from him.
As a result, she had no choice but to put away her white lotus flower-like delicate female act, and reinstate her rational manners.
“Apothecary Leng, I only judge matters as it stands. After all, Grandmaster had just examined many medicinal pills, and seeing that he is also tired……”
However, the adorable Apothecary Leng Yan sent her a strong glare: “What are you saying? Don’t tell me that in your eyes, Master is this weak? After inspecting a few bottles of medicine, he would already be tired? Are you cursing Master or are you scornful of Master? In the end, what kind of evil intentions are you harboring? Moreover, is that my master or your master, do not use this kind of self-believing attitude in front of me.”
A string of criticism showered down and tossed in the Jade Lake’s fairy’s face, immediately, she was scolded stupid….. it made her unable to return to reality for a while.
She had been pampered and spoiled since childhood, when did she ever receive this kind of criticism? Even though she knew how to pretend, she still was unable to continue pretending.
Even though in her heart, she had already considered Grandmaster Rong Yun as her teacher, but, when all was said and done, she still had not officially become his disciple……
Jade Lake’s fairy’s hands at her side clenched tightly, and she hurriedly walked forward, kneeling in front of Grandmaster Rong Yun: “Master, my…….my mouth was not screened properly and have offended you. Please, you mustn’t be angry…..”
Grandmaster Rong Yun’s voice was clear and cold: “Get up.”
Soon after, he somewhat helplessly sighed and cast a glance at Apothecary Leng: “You are already this old, why is your temper still as fiery and explosive as a cannon? Then, in the future, how to get along with fellow disciples?”
Once Grandmaster Rong Yun’s last words were said, the situation immediately made a startling reversal!
Although the Jade Lake’s fairy’s face still looked wronged, however, no matter what, she could not conceal an expression of being pleased.
Fellow disciples……..what Grandmaster Rong Yun meant was that he had already tacitly agreed that she was his disciple? Thinking about this, Li Yaoyao’s heart immediately became sweeter than honey.
Today, the difficult questions that Apothecary Leng raised, Li Yaoyao had engraved them deep in her heart. She decided to wait until after she had been accepted by Grandmaster Rong Yun as a disciple, she must think of a way to have Apothecary Leng killed off!
Emperor Jing had made an even more firm decision, after the end of the court session, he would personally go to Jade Lake’s Li Family, to agree as quickly as possible on a wedding date. Otherwise, after Grandmaster Rong Yun had accepted Li Yaoyao as a disciple, the Jade Lake’s Li Family would be so arrogant as to have their tails stuck up.
After hearing Grandmaster Rong Yun’s words, Apothecary Leng’s expression became somewhat gloomy.
Listening to Master’s tone of voice, it’s as if he was truly going to accept Li Yaoyao?
Leng Yao’s temperament was straightforward. He did not like Li Yaoyao, this kind of young woman who puts on acts. He felt that Su Luo was very good, with a similar temperament to his that did not bother about trifles.
Thinking like this, he was even more resolute in his notion about marketing Su Luo to Grandmaster Rong Yun.
“Master, you should take a look, this girl is really pretty good. Maybe she would really fit your intentions. Just looking wouldn’t delay much of your time.”
Grandmaster Rong Yun cast him glance, in the end, his gaze still landed on the little divine dragon’s body who was in Su Luo’s arms.
Under the Jade Lake’s fairy’s expectant gaze, Grandmaster Rong Yun, in the end, still nodded his head: “Present the medicinal pill.”
The Jade Lake’s fairy was hesitant, and was just thinking about going or not.
But she could only see that Apothecary Leng had already brought up and presented the medicinal pill Su Luo refined: “Master, once you have a look, I guarantee you will be shocked.”
Grandmaster Rong Yun slanted him a glance, his gaze landing on the white jade porcelain bottle in his hand.
At this moment, the Jade Lake’s fairy’s gaze was staring fixedly at Grandmaster Rong Yun, attempting to find any clues of his mood from his face.
In fact, she did not believe that Su Luo’s ability at refining medicines was stronger than hers. Only, that little slut’s luck was really too good, every time, at the crucial point, she would turn the tables and take the win.
