Chapter 259: A Sharp Contrast

Xia Xibei glanced at him with a weird expression. “You are not in this business.”

The Qiao family was involved in many industries, but the pharmaceutical industry wasn’t one of them.

Huo’s family was the leader of the pharmaceutical industry, so it was certainly best to collaborate with him.

Hearing this, a smug smile appeared at the corner of Huo Zijun’s mouth. He ignored Qiao Yanjue and looked at Xia Xibei, “Is there an actual product? Or is this just an idea?”

Xia Xibei made it sound as if there was an actual product.

“There is a product.” Xia Xibei nodded, “However, I don’t have the right medicinal materials on hand, so I can’t produce it at the moment.”

Huo Zijun was a little disappointed, thinking that he was going to see this miraculous medicine immediately.

“I will write you a list. Help me get these medicinal materials, and I can make it.”

Xia Xibei had this idea before but was delayed by other matters for these past few days, with no time to implement it.

It just so happened that Qiao Yanjue had invited Huo Zijun over.

Of course, she couldn’t miss this opportunity. She had to seize this enormous market while she had the chance.

“Great,” Huo Zijun nodded. He was very interested in this medicine.

“Give me the list and I will have people bring over the materials now.”

Xia Xibei nodded and got up immediately to find pen and paper.

“I’ll get it,” Qiao Yanjue stopped her instantly.

Seeing Qiao Yanjue’s solicitous appearance, Huo Zijun felt even more shocked.

Who would have thought that Master Jue, who was usually so cold and standoffish, had such a side to him?

If the people in the capital city were to know about this, they would be scared to death!

After Qiao Yanjue brought her a pen and some paper, Xia Xibei acted quickly, writing down a list of medicinal materials.

Huo Zijun took the list and looked over the medicinal materials written on it, a bit surprised by what he saw.

“These… These can be mixed?”

Some of the medicinal materials here were slightly toxic.

“You’ll see,” Xia Xibei smiled with confidence.

“Okay, then.” Huo Zijun nodded, took a picture of the list, and sent it to his store employees.

“Okay, let’s eat,” Qiao Yanjue said, scooping some soup into a bowl for Xia Xibei.

“I want some too.” Huo Zijun handed over his bowl.

“Do it yourself.” He turned the soup ladle around.

Huo Zijun was speechless. He was a better boyfriend than a friend!

The corners of his mouth twitched, and he took two deep breaths, then did it himself.

He then looked at Xia Xibei, asking, “Right, when can you give me this product?”

The next step in the collaboration could be discussed only after they saw the properties of the drug.

“In a few days. I have something to do tomorrow afternoon,” Xia Xibei replied, taking a sip of her soup.

“Oh? What is it?”

Even Qiao Yanjue perked up to listen.

“I have an audition tomorrow afternoon.”

“Audition?!” Huo Zijun was stunned, only reacting after a while. “You’re going to act?”

“Yes,” Xia Xibei nodded. “This is my first role, so it needs a lot of thought.”

“You are going to be filming?” Qiao Yanjue frowned. “Did the company find the job for you?”

Xia Xibei shook her head, “No, a friend referred me.”

“A friend? Who is it?”

“You don’t know him,” Xia Xibei shook her head. “Someone big in the industry.”

Qiao Yanjue’s face turned ashen as he questioned her, “A big bro in the industry? How did you meet? How do you know he doesn’t have bad intentions…”

The series of questions made Huo Zijun speechless.

What the…! These words came from their Big Qiao?! Was he an imposter?!

“Don’t worry, it’s okay.” Xia Xibei was not angry, knowing that Qiao Yanjue cared about her. “It’s Yu Ziqi’s cousin. He’s a very good person.”

Very good person?

Qiao Yanjue’s face fell even more.
