Chapter 702 – The matter of accepting a disciple (2)
The civil and military ministers under the steps made of precious jade suddenly looked at each other in dismay.
His Majesty, the Emperor, was really devious.
If this was given for him to announce, then naturally, the ones arriving will mostly be refining pharmacists from the court of Eastern Ling Empire. This was called not letting one’s own water to flow into others’ field.
However, Grandmaster Rong Yun was not a fool, either. How could he have agreed?
Yet, Grandmaster Rong Yun’s reaction was beyond their expectations.
In contrast to the emperor’s excitement, Grandmaster Rong Yun’s reaction was a lot colder.
One could only see Grandmaster Rong Yun take a slight sip of tea. That pair of eyes as dark as a green pool was bright enough to see through the entire world’s schemes. His expression was cold and indifferent as he said: “Just a meeting is fine.”
There wasn’t even the slightest movement in the expression of the Jade Lake’s fairy who was behind him.
That’s right, based on natural aptitude, strength and background, who could beat Jade Lake’s Li family’s little princess? Even if someone came before to be selected, they would just serve as cannon fodder.
At this moment, everyone was green with envy towards the Jade Lake’s fairy for being able to get Grandmaster Rong Yun’s favor.
However, the emperor had another scheme inside his heart.
Li Yaoyao being picked out by Grandmaster Rong Yun was also a good thing. However, if the court Apothecaries under his control could also be accepted by Grandmaster Rong Yun into his school, it would be a double celebration.
So, in regards to this matter, the emperor’s interest was rather strong.
News of Grandmaster Rong Yun wanting to take a disciple spread from the throne room.
It was as if this news had grown wings. In an instant, it had already spread throughout the whole imperial capital.
On this day, Apothecary Leng finally came out from the refining pills room.
This time, after going into seclusion for half a month, his harvest was rather large. Just as he emerged from his seclusion, his steward told him the news in the throne room.
Such a good opportunity… How could this be missed!
Apothecary Leng waved his arms about widely, “Prepare a horse! To Su Manor! Hurry!”
Although he could also bring Su Luo to see his Master in private, but, how could it be compared to now in a perfectly justified way?
Upon hearing this, the steward was about to command a servant to harness a horse. Yet unexpectedly, Apothecary Leng caught up to him with a few quick steps. He immediately jumped onto the horse’s back and left just like that.
He left behind the steward and the coachman, looking at each other in dismay…
Apothecary Leng spurred the horse on, hurrying towards Su Manor.
Today, Su Zian had just announced he was sick and stayed home.
Ever since the incident that happened at Su Manor before, Su Zian had become more haggard, and the entire Su Manor had settled into silence.
“My lord, Apothecary Leng has arrived!” The steward saw Apothecary Leng’s horse from afar. Without waiting for him to draw near, the steward flew into a run.
Su Zian was just sitting in the study, contemplating. Seeing that Apothecary Leng was coming, he could not help but feel overjoyed at the news.
“Someone come, quickly, quickly come to welcome Apothecary Leng! Also, quickly go and call the Fifth Miss out here. Just say that Apothecary Leng is here. Hurry up and go!” Su Zian repeatedly commanded in haste.
On his face was an expression of simply being overjoyed.
Su Jingyu was still lying on the bed right now. The bones in his whole body were so soft, they had become a lump. He did not even have the strength to raise his arm.
Madam Su was also this way.
The gloomy and dismal Su Manor had become lively and bustling because of Apothecary Leng’s arrival.
Apothecary Leng abandoned the horse and charged into Su Manor.
Before even waiting for him to stand still, Su Zian had already hurried forward to greet Apothecary Leng.
Su Zian had a flattering and ingratiating smile on his face: “Apothecary Leng. Welcome, welcome. Please, come in quickly.”
Apothecary Leng let out a snort. However, seeing as Su Zian was Su Luo’s father, Apothecary Leng reluctantly gave him some face: “Lead the way.”
Although they had just taken their seats in the living room, a servant had already brought out cups of tea.
Apothecary Leng’s forehead knotted slightly: “Quickly, ask your daughter to please come out.”
Daughter? Su Zian’s eyes suddenly lit up!
He already said so! Apothecary Leng seemed to have a very good impression of Su Xi, how could he really abandon Su Manor without any regard?
Su Zian urgently instructed the servant: “Hurry, hurry! Hurry up and ask for the Miss to please come out!”
