Chapter 706 – The matter of accepting a disciple (6)
Su Zian was just about to slap Su Xi again.
However, incredibly, Su Xi had already covered the slap mark, turned and ran away.
While she ran, she also cried. Her cries seemed as if she had been extremely wronged.
Speaking of Su Luo’s side.
After Nangong Liuyun left, he left his Dragon Scaled Horse for Su Luo to look after.
At this moment, the Dragon Scaled Horse was waiting in front of the gate.
Su Luo, with one jump up, sat on top of the high horse.
As for Apothecary Leng’s excellent colt, who seemed mighty and majestic before, now, compared to the Dragon Scaled Horse, it didn’t even dare to raise its hooves.
One in front and another in the back, the two horses quickly arrived at the Imperial Palace.
Inside the Imperial Palace.
Grandmaster Rong Yun sat upright on the red sandalwood chair with an indifferent expression.
Jade Lake’s fairy cleverly waited upon him at one side, her expression pure and cold. However, her eyes would inadvertently flash with a self-satisfied smile.
Seven people stood in front of Grandmaster Rong Yun.
These seven were Court Apothecaries that had been arranged earlier by Emperor Jing, as a result, they were available at any time.
Grandmaster Rong Yun indifferently said a sentence: “Present the most recent medicinal pill you have refined.”
The Jade Lake’s fairy delivered the tray collected with the pills to the table in front of Grandmaster Rong Yun.
On the red tray, seven bottles were arranged in order.
These seven Apothecaries normally were also masters at strutting around. But now, in front of Grandmaster Rong Yun, each and every one of them was like mice that had seen a cat. They were holding their breaths with rapt attention and did not even dared to breathe loudly.
At this moment, the throne room was quiet and soundless, even the sound of heartbeats could be heard clearly.
Emperor Jing stared at Grandmaster Rong Yun with a grave expression. His eyes did not even blink, afraid that he would miss a trace that showed his mood on his face.
Master Rong Yun twirled the first bottle of medicine in his hands, opened the bottle and sniffed it briefly. His forehead wrinkled slightly and set the bottle aside.
Afterwards, it was the second bottle, the third bottle……
During this time, in the throne room, not a single sound could be heard. Those seven Apothecaries that were undergoing the examination were even more nervous, to the extent that they were on the verge of fainting.
This opportunity, with regards to them, was the same as changing their entire lives.
However, when Grandmaster Rong Yun’s forehead wrinkled more and more tightly and his expression became more and more gloomy, their hearts also dropped to an all-time low.
Sure enough, as Grandmaster Rong Yun finished examining the last bottle of medicine, he looked at Emperor Jing. The corner of his mouth raised into an indifferent smile: “There’s no more?”
At this moment, Emperor Jing’s entire body became stiff. His complexion carried a trace of embarrassment: “This, this is……”
“This is your Eastern Ling Empire’s most outstanding Apothecaries?” Grandmaster Rong Yun’s eyebrows rose slightly.
“Don’t tell me…… none of them are qualified?” Emperor Jing awkwardly asked.
“Completely unqualified.” Grandmaster Rong Yun shook his head.
Emperor Jing’s eyes flashed with a trace of disappointment.
He should have already known that Grandmaster Rong Yun’s conditions for accepting a disciple would certainly be extremely harsh. He could only blame his own heart for believing there to be a bit of luck.
However, this way only proved the Jade Lake’s fairy’s strength even more.
Able to be chosen by Grandmaster Rong Yun, and be brought along at his side. In terms of refining drugs, what kind of attainments had she reached?
The more Emperor Jing looked at the Jade Lake’s fairy, the more satisfied he become.
Look at that, in every aspect, she was perfectly matched with second child, not a single part was mismatched.
He decided, tomorrow, he would discuss the date with the Jade Lake’s Li Family. After Nangong Liuyun returned, then they would be married.
At this moment, Emperor Jing, who was immersed in his own world, simply did not consider everything. If this matter was really set, then based on Nangong Liuyun’s temper, wouldn’t he directly tie up the old emperor and send him to the bridal chamber.
Grandmaster Rong Yun cast an apathetic glance at Emperor Jing, with curiously coincidental timing, he said a sentence: “The quality of these apothecaries are much worse than Western Jin Empire’s apothecaries.”
Hearing these words, Emperor Jing, who sat on the Dragon Throne, and the many civil and military ministers in the room, blushed with shame.
Eastern Ling Empire and Western Jin Empire, in every aspect of strength, were almost the same. Their competition was even more intense, and neither would accept the other as better.
