After sending off Yu Ziqi and Song Jiaren, Xia Xibei and Tang Luo returned to their classroom.
Xia Xibei took out a bottle when they got to their seats, telling him, “For you.”
“What is it?” Tang Luo asked in confusion, taking the small porcelain bottle.
He could smell a fragrant scent as soon as he opened the bottle.
“It’s good stuff,” Xia Xibei smiled, “It replenishes the qi and blood.”
Tang Luo’s pupils suddenly shrank, his expression changing.
“Replenish the qi and blood?”
“That’s right.” Xia Xibei didn’t seem to notice his change. “Blood and qi are important to both men and women, and they have to be replenished.”
She couldn’t help but smile at Tang Luo’s surprised gaze, teasing him, “You didn’t think that only girls needed to replenish qi and blood, did you?”
Tang Luo looked away in embarrassment, stuttering, “I- I don’t know much about this.”
“It’s okay… As long as I understand it!” Xia Xibei smiled brightly. “Don’t worry, my medicine is guaranteed to work. You will have an immediate effect after taking it!”
“Are there… Any do’s and don’ts?” Tang Luo hesitantly asked.
“There is nothing to be wary of,” Xia Xibei shook her head. “Anyone can take it, both men and women. Of course, children and the elderly are the only exceptions.”
“Anything I can’t eat while taking this?”
“Nope. You can eat normally. Just take one pill a day after breakfast.”
Tang Luo held the small bottle and smelled it’s scent, his expression a bit complicated.
Finally, he nodded, “How much money do I owe you?”
“Money? What money?” Xia Xibei looked at him in surprise. “This is between us. We don’t need to involve money. Of course, for future cooperation, we will be clear about money, but this is nothing.”
Of course, Xia Xibei would have sold this bottle of medicine for a few hundred yuan if it had been an outsider. After all, the effect was powerful.
Although the medicinal materials used weren’t high-end, after she worked on them, their effect and strength were different. Even if she charged 1,000 yuan per bottle, someone would definitely buy it.
However, her relationship with Tang Luo was different, so she wouldn’t charge him.
“Okay, tell me when you have finished taking this. Then, you just need to work hard to create the platform.”
“Ok,” Tang Luo pursed his lips, his gaze mixed.
“You can take a pill now,” Xia Xibei told him.
Tang Luo nodded and shook out a brown pill.
The pill was the size of a soybean, not very strong in flavor and smelling like dates.
After looking at it, Tang Luo stuffed the pill into his mouth, took a sip of water, and swallowed the pill. Then, he took out his books.
Soon, he could feel the discomfort in his lower abdomen quickly fading away.
His body, which had previously felt tired and weak, seemed to have gained a lot of strength.
He was extremely surprised, thinking it was his own illusion, but after a small pause, he had to admit that all those aches had really disappeared!
It was amazing! And all of this was because of that pill!
Xia Xibei turned her head, meeting his shocked eyes with a smile, “How do you feel? Is the effect obvious?”
Tang Luo was silent for a while before whispering, “Thank you.”
Xia Xibei chuckled, “No need to thank me. We are at the same table, and we are also partners. It’s good for both of us!”
Tang Luo bit his lip and finally smiled. “Okay! Good luck partner!”
The two looked at each other and smiled, sharing an understanding in their silence.
During class, the English teacher made an announcement.
G City was going to hold an English speech contest for high school students, and all capable students could participate. If they won, they would represent G City in the national competition.
