The Marriage of an Esteemed Supreme Healer, a Noble Ruler - Chapter 2238
Yu Mo’s heart sank, and he immediately lowered his head and said, “Yes.”
Inside the courtyard, Xiao Ba was sitting on a stone stool and counting the herbs in her hand. These were all taken from Zhen Bao Pavilion, and they were naturally of very good quality.
However, the amount was a little small. She hadn’t done much and saw the bottom of it already.
Thinking of Big Brother’s instructions, she wrinkled her nose and lightly grunted. Not everyone is as maniacal as him!
After tidying her things, she turned around to look at the room Qiang Wanzhou was in.
The door was tightly shut.
Probably because Cen Yi set up a barrier around it, Qiang Wanzhou did not cause too big of a commotion when he was preparing to break through to become a legendary warrior. Hence, he temporarily did not attract the attention of outsiders.
It has already been more than two hours. I wonder how the situation inside is..
“Xiao Ba, Master hasn’t come back yet?” asked Hua Shuangshuang strangely, as he walked over.
Xiao Ba shook her head. “Not yet.”
“That’s not right. Didn’t Master want to take some herbs from Zhen Bao Pavilion? Why hasn’t she come back in such a long time?” Hua Shuangshuang furrowed his brows slightly.
Xiao Ba held her chin with one hand. “Perhaps Master stayed there to replicate the Xuan formations?”
Hua Shuangshuang thought about it and felt that it made sense. But upon thinking deeply, he still felt that something was amiss. “Little Zhou’s situation is urgent. Logically speaking, Master shouldn’t—”
“She’s at the medicinal mountain! Don’t you know?” Xiao Ran’s voice suddenly came over.
The two people in the courtyard turned around in unison and saw Xiao Ran standing on the roof, crossing his arms as he looked over.
Hua Shuangshuang immediately asked, “Senior Xiao Ran, you said that our master is at the medicinal mountain?”
Xiao Ran nodded. “Yeah! It seems like you really didn’t know. Not only is she at the medicinal mountain, but she’s even competing in pill production with Liang He at the medicinal mountain! It seems like she invited Eighth Deity to be the judge? Anyway, this incident has blown up to quite a great extent. I’ve heard that many people have already gone there.”
Hua Shuangshuang and Xiao Ba exchanged glances and saw the worry in the other party’s eyes.
They had already witnessed what kind of place the medicinal mountain was and what kind of person Eighth Deity was.
Why would Master suddenly go there? Unless… it is for the herbs?
Actually, they couldn’t be blamed. Even though this news had spread far and wide throughout Fantasy Divine Palace, almost nobody was willing to come and tell them.
Even though Chu Liuyue had been famous recently, their group of people didn’t have bloodline totems. Who would waste their time and energy to build good relations with people that were destined to be unable to become a deity and would even be kicked out of Fantasy Divine Palace in no time?
Besides, the few of them were also very strange. Ever since they came here, it seemed like they rarely left the house.
Xiao Ba lifted her dress and started heading toward the medicinal mountain. “I’ll go take a look!”
If that Shu Jing dares to disrespect Master, I definitely won’t let her off!
Hua Shuangshuang saw that she was going to rush over and fight, and hurriedly stopped her. “Xiao Ba, why don’t I go instead? You should continue staying here—”
Qiang Wanzhou was preparing to break through to become a legendary warrior, and Big Brother was guarding him. There had to be someone guarding the house.
“Let her go. You should stay.” Cen Yi’s voice came from within the house.
Hua Shuangshuang was dazed.
Xiao Ba smiled in a flirtatious manner. “Second Brother, Big Brother allowed me to go. Don’t stop me anymore.”
Hua Shuangshuang could only shake his head helplessly. “After you get there, you must promise to be obedient.”
Xiao Ba lightly grunted and lifted her legs to walk outside. “As long as that so-called Eighth Deity doesn’t take the initiative to mess with me, I would be too lazy to be bothered with her.”
Hua Shuangshuang saw her leave and turned around to glance at the tightly shut door, not understanding why Cen Yi let Xiao Ba go over.
Still… Cen Yi always had his own reasons for doing things, and nothing much would happen.
Xiao Ran said with interest, “Speaking of which, your master is indeed an all-rounder.”
It was fine that she broke through to become a legendary warrior at a young age, but she was even a Xuan Master. She had such outstanding talent that Zhen Bao Pavilion thought of her very highly.
What was even more expected was that she was actually a Senior Physician?
Hua Shuangshuang laughed and was not humble. “Our master has always been outstanding.”
Xiao Ran stroked his chin. “She doesn’t have a bloodline totem yet has such surprising talent. I’ve really not heard of it before.”
He had stayed in Fantasy Divine Palace for many years and saw countless cultivators, each with outstanding talent. But compared to that lady, they instantly paled in comparison.
“Did you offend the Eighth Deity before?” he asked nonchalantly.
Hua Shuangshuang was dazed for a moment. “Senior Xiao Ran, why would you say that?”
“If you don’t have any grudges against her… Logically speaking, she wouldn’t do this.” Xiao Ran could not figure it out.
Not many people knew of the relationship between Chu Liuyue and Zhen Bao Pavilion. But as the Eighth Deity, how could Shu Jing not know?
In such a situation, she actually did such a thing… Other than both parties having conflicts early on, Xiao Ran really could not think of another explanation.
Hua Shuangshuang asked in return, “After we came to Fantasy Divine Palace, we’ve been very careful in doing matters and have been very polite to everyone. How could we purposely offend Eighth Deity?”
Wasn’t that causing trouble for themselves?
Xiao Ran seemed to be in deep thought. “That’s true! What does she want by doing this?”
Hua Shuangshuang did not speak.
He had seen Shu Jing before, and could naturally guess that the other party disliked them. However, he never expected her to offend Master.
“If Ming Shu is willing to go out, this matter can be discussed. It’s a pity—” Xiao Ran thought for a long while and shook his head. “Zhen Bao Pavilion never participates in such matters, and they probably won’t intervene this time. I just hope that the lady will do good for herself and not be bullied too miserably.”
On some mountain peak, Chu Liuyue and Liang He were producing pills.
Time slowly trickled past, and all sorts of noises in the surroundings gradually appeased.
Many people initially directed gazes filled with contempt at Chu Liuyue, which slowly became gazes with serious shock.
Seeing that she continuously put the herbs into the cauldron in such a smooth manner without hesitation or delays, they finally realized—Chu Liuyue’s abilities in medicine refinement were much stronger than they thought!
“Is she really only a Senior Physician? Such methods and familiarity don’t lose out to Liang He at the opposite end at all!”
“Initially, I still thought that she was planning to copy Liang He to produce the Settling Yuan Pill, but now… It seems like it’s not the case? She’s even a step faster than Liang He!”
“Quickly look! She’s preparing to handle the dragon-taming nut!”
The dragon-taming nut was the most important herb in producing the Settling Yuan Pill, and she had to be extremely careful at this juncture. If she was not careful, she would lose everything, and her previous efforts would be wasted.
Chu Liuyue raised her hand, and the only dragon-taming nut flew to it.
The dragon-taming nut had a very long emerald-green root, with petals overlapping at the top and presented in a bright golden color. From afar, it looked like a dazzling dragon scale.
Chu Liuyue looked down, picked one petal out from the side, and threw it into the Heavenly Square Cauldron.
