Little Black and Little White shouted out the exact same answer, strengthening Baili Huangzhuang’s suspicions. He was only three years older than her, but his strength was already quite formidable, so his cultivation talent must be incredibly high.
Even this country’s great talent was far from comparable to Dibei Chen’s level. It could only serve as proof that this Dibel Chen was far from the helpless cripple he seemed to be.
“However, it’s non of my bissnes what that guy does” Baili Huangzhuang just shrugged as she walked into the medicine shop.
Ten-thousand Medicine Lane, the king of all medicine shops. It had all the herbs one could want, and basically any ingredients somebody wanted could be found here.
Just by walking in, Baili Huangzhuang could smell the fragrant raw herbs and could immediately determine which herbs were which.
“Amassing spirit grass, life fruit, blood-clotting grass…”
A shallow smile laid on Baili Huangzhuang’s red lips as a wave of familiarity washed over her. Before, her favorite place to stay had always been the medicine room, and she had lived there almost all year-round. That’s why here, she felt very comfortable.
Ten-thousand Medicine Lane’s shop keeper, Ji Wenbin was sorting the herbs when he looked up and saw Baili Huangzhuang closing her eyes, relying on scent alone to determine which herb was which. His face reflected awe as he listened.
“Girl, you are really great, your skill with herbs really isn’t lacking!” Ji Wenbin sighed with approval
He handled herbs year after year for the medicine shop, and only after many years of accumulated experience and exercises had he finally been able to distinguish herbs by scent. Seeing this girl hardly 15 years old able to do the same, how could he not be surprised?
Baili Huangzhuang smiled faintly, “Shopkeeper is flattering me.”
“How could a girl have such skill with herbs, despite being so young?”
Ji Wenbin sized up Baili Huangzhuang curiously. He was always somewhat biased towards medicinal herbs so upon meeting the Baili Huangzhuang, who was well versed in herbs, he felt as if he had met an old friend.
Looking at Ji Wenbin’s excited appearance, Baili Huangzhuang knew instantly that this shopkeeper was only somebody infatuated with pharmacy. A question asked by such a person was only out od pure curiosity, nothing more.
“I’ve been studying herbs meticulously since I was a child, so I know a lot about these kinds of stuff.” Baili Huangzhuang smiled lightly.
“So then, girl is a physician?”
Baili Huangzhuang nodded, confirming Ji Wenbin’s thought.
In her past life, she and the elders thoroughly studied medicine for days. After mingling with herbs and medicine for years, Baili Huangzhuang finally received the title of “Elder” and became one of the best doctors in that era.
Medicine was an area that she would always be confident in.
The awe in Ji Wenbei’s eyes grew even more. To be a physician at such a young age, it seems that her future achievements will not be small.
“What does girl want to buy?” Seeing Baili Huangzhuang size up the herbs on the counter, Ji Weibei spoke out, “My Ten-thousand Medicine Lane shop’s herbs are always in stock, and it contains almost all the herbs in the world.”
Baili Huangzhuang smiled as she looked through the herbs. But when she saw their price tags, her eyes indicated a trace of doubt.
“Why is the price so unreasonable?”
Her eyebrows knitted together, but Baili Huangzhuang didn’t say those words out loud. She’s in the Ten-thousand Medicine Lane’s shop which was known for its fairness, so the prices shouldn’t be wrong. But after only 1000 years, how did the prices manage to change so much?
Before, white dew grass and fairy seed were clearly the cheapest medicinal herbs. Currently though, the prices were at least 10 times higher, yet on the contrary, other herbs were even cheaper than they should’ve been. It was tryle strange.
Suddenly, Baili Huangzhuang spotted a particular herb. It’s whole body was green as it twinkled like stars in the sky, imitating the heavenly bodies in the sky. Yes, it was the spirit star grass!
