The moon was bright, only a few stars in the sky, and the wind was cool like water.
Baili Hongzhuang was cultivating in her room when a sudden burst of footsteps sounded outside. Almost immediately after, somebody knocked on her door.
Hearing the familiar knocks, a trace of a smile appeared in Baili Hongzhuang’s eyes.
Xia Zhiqing knocked a few more times. Just by hearing the flurried footsteps, Baili Hongzhuang already knew that it was her.
“Zhiman, you came ah.”
Baili Hongzhuang opened the door and welcome Xia Zhiqing inside, a clear smile on her beautiful face, “How convenient, I was just about to visit you tomorrow. Now that you came, I don’t need to look for you anymore.”
Hearing that, Xia Zhiqing was startled, “You were looking for me?”
Baili Hongzhuang nodded. Her hand reached into her space pouch, a white pill in the porcelain bottle appearing in her hands.
“This is for you.”
Xia Zhiqing took the white porcelain bottle, looking at the plump, full pill inside.
The gears in her brain turned as Xia Zhiqing’s eyes turned huge, “Hongzhuang, you shouldn’t…… shouldn’t give….”
Seeing Xia Zhiqing unable to even form a full coherent sentence, Baili Hongzhuang laughed, “Don’t worry, it’s for you.”
Xia Zhiqing sucked in a cold breath. When Baili Hongzhuang had handed her the bottle, her heart already had a faint guess of what it was.
But after knowing that it really was the Channel Opening Pill, it was still hard for her to believe. It was such an expensive pill ah!
“This is too precious, I can’t take it.” Xia Zhiqing tried to refuse again and again.
Although she had long thought of Baili Hongzhuang as a close friend, the time they knew each other wasn’t for very long.
She didn’t have anything, so how could she accept Baili Hongzhuang’s expensive gift?
Know that ever since the auction for the 3 Channel Opening Pills was announced, every student in the school was trying to think of every possible method to prepare for the auction!
“Just take it, ok? This pill is extremely useful for us right now.”
Xia Zhiqing shook her head, “I know that it’s very useful, but because its so useful, I can’t take it.”
She sincerely thought of Hongzhuang as a friend, and so she never sought any of her riches.
Baili Hongzhuang grinned, “Xiaman, you’re thinking too much about me. Since we’re friends, you don’t need to think so much.”
She and Xia Zhiqing didn’t know each other very well but had hit it off very well.
Seeing Bali Hongzhuang’s earnest words, Xia Zhiqing hesitated a little before accepting the Channel Opening Pill.
“Hongzhuang, in the future, if you ever need anything from me, I definitely won’t refuse!
She was touched by Baili Hongzhuang’s sincerity.
Xia Zhiqing secretly resolved in her heart- if Baili Hongzhuang ever had a time where she needed something, she’d do everything in her power to get it!
“Oh right, Xiaman, why did you come find me?”
Baili Hongzhuang asked, her ink black eyes having traces of a smile.
“Hey, I forgot something.” Xia Zhiqing suddenly remembered, “Actually I didn’t come for anything really important. I just heard some really interesting news from somebody.”
Xia Zhiqing laughed mysteriously, “Today I heard that a new special enrollment student was coming to Azure Water School tomorrow. You also received the notification to go tomorrow, right?”
Baili Hongzhuang nodded slightly. After she came back from the Pill Master’s Guild, she did indeed receive the notification to go, but she didn’t know why.
“A new special enrollment student?” Baili Hongzhuang was startled, “Weren’t me and Bai Junyu the only new special enrollment students this year?”
