Chapter 721 Rong Yun’s bias (8)
Su Luo stepped out of the throne room. The first person she saw was Beichen Ying.
This child’s head of hair was a chaotic mess. He looked messy and cut a very sorry figure. His complexion seeming travel worn and exhausted. However, his eyes were deep and alive.
With both hands crossed over his chest, he leaned on the red pillar flamboyantly, with deep eyes that contained a smile as he looked at Su Luo.
Su Luo smilingly patted his shoulders: “You arrived too late, otherwise, you would have seen a good play. Truly regretful.”
Beichen Ying grasped that purple-colored crystal stone in his hands tightly, and placed it behind his back. His expression had a touch of lament: “That is truly regretful.”
From an angle that Su Luo could not see, a changed expression flashed through his eyes.
These few days, he had hurried day and night to finally make a round trip between Beichen Palace and the Eastern Ling capital.
Because he was afraid of ambushes set up by the Jade Lake’s Li family, he had notified Lan Xuan and Anye Ming. He asked them to impersonate him and lure away the opponent’s experts.
Afterwards, he quickly rushed to the Imperial Palace. Originally, he wanted to directly go in. But instead, he stealthily flew to the roof to watch.
He had calculated everything, only, he could never have calculated that Luo girl would actually win the first round by relying on herself.
This time, in the end, he still was of no help.
The news of Su Luo’s draw with the Jade Lake’s fairy in the first round was passed around very quickly.
Su Zian who originally was paying an abnormal amount of attention to this, naturally knew the results immediately.
The second he knew of this news, he immediately sank into ecstasy!
He truly never expected that that loathsome girl would actually be this hardworking. She was able to pass, standing side by side with the Jade Lake’s fairy.
Even if it was just luck, so what, luck was also a part of one’s strength.
Su Zian was currently waiting for Su Luo to return, and wanted to wantonly praise her. He wanted to make up for the lack of father-daughter feelings for these many years.
Su Zian couldn’t help but secretly repent. These years, he truly did not treat Su Luo well. Among his children, he often neglected Su Luo, to the extent that their father-daughter relationship became estranged.
However, it didn’t matter, from now on, he would treat that girl as a pearl in his palm. Concentrating all his doting on her, he believed at that time, their father-daughter relationship would advance by leaps and bounds.
Just when Su Zian became more and more excited and happy from these thoughts, suddenly, a letter flew in from the window.
At this moment, Su Zian had his hands on the table. The dagger with the letter attached inserted perfectly in the crack between his fingers! .
How strong was this expert who threw the dagger, and how accurate was his strength of control over the dagger?
It must be said that Su Zian was a fifth rank expert.
Su Zian looked at that letter, his eyes flashing with astonishment. He rushed out to chase after this person and inspected all around. He discovered that the opponent had already disappeared.
That’s right, if someone capable of secretly throwing the dagger into the crack between Su Zian’s fingers, it meant his strength was much greater than Su Zian’s. Then, how could he be caught by Su Zian.
Even if Su Zian could catch up, then what could he actually do?
When he understood this, Su Zian resolutely returned to the great hall. He looked at the letter that appeared so mysteriously, his eyes squinting dangerously.
He had a very bad premonition.
The night was pitch-black as ink.
Su Zian shut
himself in his study.
The doors and windows were closed tightly, the entire room was covered all around in pitch-black darkness.
Su Zian’s complexion was hard to distinguish in the gloomy darkness, none could see it clearly.
At this moment, he held the letter that was delivered this afternoon. It was very clear that the wax seal on top of it had already been broken.
Su Zian opened the letter, and very carefully looked at it once more. In the end, he angrily threw the letter on the table!
The words written on it was very clear.
Su Luo was not his, Su Zian’s, daughter.
Chapter 722 – Rong Yun’s bias (9)
Su Zian opened the letter, and very carefully scanned it again. In the end, he angrily threw the letter down on the table!
The words were written very clearly.
Su Luo was not Su Zian’s daughter. From the very beginning, his daughter had been switched by someone.
This was simply…..
The veins on Su Zian’s forehead stuck out and were about to explode. His complexion became ashen!
He was so angry that his fist smashed down on the table. Immediately, a fist-sized hole appeared on the long table. It could clearly be seen that Su Zian was infuriated till he became nearly insane.
If this news had come earlier, he would have already expelled Su Luo from the Su family. How could he have allowed her to stay free and easy until now?
However, just when she and the Jade Lake’s fairy were competing for the position of becoming Grandmaster Rong Yun’s disciple, and just when Su Luo had passed the first round, it appeared!
What should he do?
Su Zian was so angry that he paced back and forth inside the room. He could not suppress it anymore, anything that could be smashed inside the room were smashed to pieces by him until nothing was left.
Speaking of Su Luo.
After returning to her Wisteria courtyard, she had not come out even once.
As a result, she did not know about Su Zian’s current state.
At this moment, she was brooding over the question of the second round of examination.
Grandmaster Rong Yun did not leak out a word, so where should she actually start?
Su Luo’s hugged the little divine dragon in her arms and poked his head unhappily: “You tell me, what topic would Grandmaster Rong Yun test on?”
The one response to her question was the little divine dragon’s blank yet innocent little face.
Su Luo sighed: “Forget it, asking you is useless. However, it’s truly strange, why would Grandmaster Rong Yun treat you so well? Could it be that he was acquainted with your old man?”
The little divine dragon shook his head, expressing that he didn’t know.
Thinking of the Old Divine Dragon, Su Luo let out a snort.
That old bastard! At the time, he lied that if she had broken the jade, at any time, the shadow image he left on this continent would come to save her. It just so happened to be useless at the crucial moment.
If it was not for Grandmaster Rong Yun’s appearance, she and the little divine dragon would already be dead by now.
Just when Su Luo was sitting cross-legged on the bed and sighed from being bored to death, a clear knocking noise came from the windows.
Su Luo’s heart moved.
Beichen Ying’s voice came from the outside.
“Come in to speak.” Su Luo said, lowering her voice.
After all, it was already midnight, waking up others was not good.
Beichen Ying jumped in from the window.
Still haven’t spoken, but seeing his face that was full of smiles, it was as if when he entered, the entire room was sprinkled full of sunlight.
Su Luo’s heart sighed with sorrow. She really wished that he would be this optimistic and cheerful for his whole life.
“Sister-in-law!” Beichen Ying beamingly approached Su Luo, afterwards, he stuffed a sack full of things into her arms.
Su Luo hadn’t even returned to her senses before another sound came from outside the window.
“Sister-in-law!” Lan Xuan jumped inside and similarly stuffed a sack of things into her arms.
Not waiting for Su Luo to ask a question, Anye Ming, also carrying a sack of things, stuffed it into Su Luo’s arms.
However, Su Luo’s arms could not hold anymore, so he could only place them on the floor.
“You guys, this is…” A huge question mark hung on top of Su Luo’s forehead.
Beichen Ying acted as the representative and was the first to speak: “Sister-in-law, just now, we went to find Apothecary Leng to drink some wine.”
“We conveniently got Apothecary Leng drunk.” Lan Xuan interrupted.
“Apothecary Leng, after drinking wine, leaked out the test questions for the exam ten days from now.” Anye Ming continued.
Beichen Ying pointed at the three sacks in front of Su Luo: “Ten days from now, Grandmaster Rong Yun will test you on an Apothecary’s knowledge and theory. Apothecary Leng had said that Sister-in-law is only an Elementary Apothecary and can only act as cannon fodder.”
Lan Xuan pointed at the sacks and added an explanation: “That’s why we took advantage of Apothecary Leng becoming drunk. We coaxed him into bringing out the books that Grandmaster Rong Yun had given to him at that time to review.”
