Chapter 709 – The matter of accepting a disciple (9)
It could be said that the Jade Lake’s fairy was afraid of losing against Su Luo’s luck.
At this moment, besides the Jade Lake’s fairy, the gazes of nearly everybody present were on Grandmaster Rong Yun’s face.
Su Luo’s name recently really resounded in the entire imperial capital, as a result, many people recognized it was her.
But because her reputation in the past was bad, therefore, many people did not think too highly of her.
“Isn’t this Su Zian’s unmarried daughter? That day, the one who had a life-and-death duel with her sister?”
“It’s exactly that one. From rumors, her strength is pretty good, however, no one ever said she could refine medicine before.”
“Just her could be compared to the Jade Lake’s fairy? Don’t know how she deceived Apothecary Leng to actually persistently be on her side.”
“To let her come out at this moment, isn’t it losing our imperial court’s face? At that time, when Grandmaster Rong Yun explodes from anger….. who would be able to bear it.”
The ministers discussed this spiritedly, none of them were optimistic about Su Luo.
Because in their minds, the Jade Lake’s fairy was like a fairy from the ninth layer of heaven. Whereas Su Luo, was merely a silly girl in the ordinary human world. How could this be mentioned on equal terms?
Not only were the court ministers discussing this spiritedly, in Emperor Jing’s heart, it was also like ten thousand horses rushing on grassland.
Even though he had only seen Su Luo once before, but the impression this loathsome girl left was deeper than anybody else’s.
Just barely saw her once, his second son, who was usually obedient, used his poisonous tongue to almost anger him to death. There was also his Treasure Storage Pavillion…….
Indeed, just thinking about it made him furious.
Emperor Jing sent a very fierce glare towards Su Luo, and Su Luo as well, felt something at this moment. She lifted her eyes and met with Emperor Jing’s gaze.
Afterwards, the corner of her mouth unhurriedly lifted into a shallow smile, a very meaningful smiling expression.
Emperor Jing coldly and heavily snorted a few times.
He promised second child not to kill her, however, this did not represent that he would indulge second child to be led astray by this loathsome girl. He had decided that after court was dismissed, he would set a wedding date with the Li family.
Thinking up to here, Emperor Jing cast a hateful glare at Su Luo.
However, right now, Su Luo already didn’t have the inclination to infuriate him. Her complete attention was focused on Grandmaster Rong Yun’s body.
Grandmaster Rong Yun sniffed the medicine in the white jade porcelain bottle, a peculiar expression then flashing across his face.
Rather, his white as jade palm spread open and poured out a single medicinal pill.
This one move immediately attracted everybody’s attention.
Because before, with those seven apothecaries, Grandmaster Rong Yun merely sniffed them a bit before casting them aside.
Now, he had poured it out, could it be that this girl from Su family truly had a chance?
Grandmaster Rong Yun looked at the semi-transparent white pill in his hands, his forehead wrinkling again.
This piece of Spirit Restoration Pill was rich, clear and transparent. Indeed, it was truly a very high grade product.
He looked at Leng Yan, his eyes sharp as ice blades.
Leng Yan’s expression flashed with a trace of embarrassment. He also knew that Su Luo’s rank was too low. However, who told her to start refining so late, there was nothing to be done about it.
Just when he was about to explain, Grandmaster Rong Yun had already returned the medicinal pill into the white jade porc
elain bottle. Soon after, he tossed that porcelain bottle back to Su Luo.
“Elementary Apothecary?” At this moment, everybody was startled and dumbfounded by this news.
Apothecary Leng actually recommended an Elementary Apothecary to Grandmaster Rong Yun, this was simply…… this was simply an insult to Grandmaster Rong Yun.
Finished, finished, once Grandmaster Rong Yun gets angry, nobody should even think of living well for another day….. One after another, until everybody’s heart harbored complaints towards Su Luo.
The mocking smile at the corner of Jade Lake’s fairy’s mouth expanded without limits.
Fancy that she would still consider this little slut as an opponent. However, she never imagined that she was merely an insignificant little Elementary Apothecary.
Just like this, she still dared to come and compete with her? If this wasn’t suicide, then what was?
In this split second, Li Yaoyao’s was feeling extremely good. She had a smile on her face and cynically looked at Su Luo.
Chapter 710 – The matter of accepting a disciple (10)
And from beginning to end, Su Luo’s expression was always indifferent, with an unconcerned appearance.
Grandmaster Rong Yun stood up.
Jade Lake Fairy hurriedly stepped forward to serve.
The crowd of people, one by one, knelt down to respectfully send off Grandmaster Rong Yun.
Since everyone had already been eliminated, then, the Jade Lake’s fairy was the sole candidate.
Just when everybody was waiting to congratulate the Jade Lake’s Li family, as Grandmaster Rong Yun passed by Su Luo, he clearly said a sentence: “After ten days, you should gather all the stuff together, otherwise, you will lose the first round.”
Saying this, he tossed a rolled up piece of white paper to Su Luo, then left without turning around.
Jade Lake’s fairy followed closely behind Grandmaster Rong Yun.
Originally, she had wanted to seize the opportunity to taunt Su Luo with some words, but after hearing what Grandmaster Rong Yun had said, she was momentarily stupefied. Her entire body froze rigidly on the spot.
Grandmaster Rong Yun’s words meant: Su Luo got past the qualifying round?
How could an Elementary Apothecary even compete with her? Hateful!
A thread of hatred flashed in the Jade Lake’s fairy’s eyes. In the end, where had the mistake occurred? Or was it that, Apothecary Leng truly had a huge influence on Grandmaster Rong Yun?
At an angle others could not see, Jade Lake’s fairy sent a fierce glare at Apothecary Leng, she thoroughly hated Apothecary Leng.
And at this moment, Su Luo just so happened to look at her, the cynicalness that flashed in her eyes made the fury in the Jade Lake’s fairy’s heart soar even more.
“Then,, I’ll first congratulate you in advance, hope you won’t lose in the first round will be good.” Jade Lake Fairy smiled insincerely.
“I won’t lose, then, the person who will lose is you. The Jade Lake’s fairy is truly magnanimous, you want to let me have this opportunity?” The corner of Su Luo’s mouth held a smile, her tone light.
The Jade Lake’s fairy angrily squeezed her clenched fists, but her face still maintained a touch of a clear, cold smile: “Su Luo, in fact, why should I? You are only an Elementary Apothecary oh. Spending such a huge price to fawn on Apothecary Leng, what kind of outcome could there be?”
Jade Lake’s fairy proved herself to be called the Jade Lake’s fairy. Before, Apothecary Leng had directly supported Su Luo, thus, she immediately splashed dirty water onto Su Luo, hinting that Su Luo had fawned on Apothecary Leng to get here.
“What’s wrong with being an Elementary Apothecary? Even though I’m an Elementary Apothecary, I can also beat you.” Su Luo said with all smiles.
“Beat me?” It seemed as if the Jade Lake’s fairy had heard the funniest joke on earth, her eyes contained a smile and said to the surrounding people with a laugh, “She said she can beat me, do you guys believe it?”
All the civil and military ministers in court burst into loud laughter.
“What’s called overestimating one’s abilities, I finally experienced it today.”
“This Su Zian ah, how did he bring up such a shameless daughter? Saying these kinds of words and not knowing how embarrassing it is. I even feel ashamed for her!”
“That’s right, as an Elementary Apothecary, she thought she was an Advanced Apothecary? Grandmaster Rong Yun is such a noble existence, how could he accept an Elementary Apothecary to be his disciple?”
Jade Lake’s fairy heard the court ministers’ words and was full of satisfaction. She complacently cast a sidelong glance at Su Luo. She coldly and arrogantly passed by Su Luo’s side, shook her sleeves and left.
Su Luo’s voice sounded behind her: “It appears quite a lot of Advanced level Apothecaries didn’t get past the qualifying round. And yet I, this very small and lowly Elementary Apothecary, passed oh.”
Jade Lake Fairy squeezed her clenched fists, added more strength to her feet and turned around to walk away quickly! When all was said and done, the Jade Lake’s fairy had suffered too many losses under Su Luo, therefore, she still avoided Su Luo like the plague.
At this moment, the entire hall was nearly absolutely silent. Almost everyone’s gazes were concentrated on Su Luo’s body.
No matter how much they thought, they could not understand. She was clearly an Elementary Apothecary, why was she chosen by Grandmaster Rong Yun?
Among these, the most jealous would be those seven court apothecaries.
