Chapter 96 – To search for hidden treasures (2)

Not far from the workbenches, there was a bookshelf with a few books randomly placed on the shelves.

However, this was not the cause of Su Luo’s astonishment. What amazed her was that there were about seven to eight corpses lying in various positions surrounding the workbench. Every corpse was air-dried and withered, as if the owner had passed away a long time ago.

It was very clear that these people had been in a very intense fight.

Su Luo was in the midst of frowning when suddenly, she sensed danger behind her. Su Luo immediately dropped and rolled on the ground to dodge.

“Didn’t know that your survival skills were so great. Even the fall couldn’t kill you!” Nen Lu said as she leaned on the corner wall for support. Her face displayed a duplicitous and furtive smile, full of strong killing intent.

In the beginning, Nen Lu was only following orders to kill Su Luo when she attacked the other. However, at this moment, Nen Lu was itching to dismember Su Luo into ten thousand tiny pieces for her own benefit.

“Aren’t you also still alive?” Su Luo’s smile was as light as a cloud and gentle like the wind. Nevertheless, a trace of apprehension appeared in her heart.

The opponent was a third ranked martial artist, while she herself had no spiritual strength. They were both injured, but by observing Nen Lu’s attack a moment ago, Su Luo realized that Nen Lu’s injuries were much lighter than hers.

Nen Lu was about to seize this opportunity to kill Su Luo when suddenly, her line of sight turned towards the interior of the room.

With just this one look, she was so amazed that her mouth fell open. Then, an ecstatic expression appeared on her face.

Nen Lu quickly walked into the room, full of excitement and with an incredulous expression.that looked at everything inside. She kept mumbling to herself. “This. This can’t be real, right? Could it actually be Zi Huo’s medicinal cauldron? Is it really Zi Huo’s medicinal cauldron?”

“What is a Zi Huo’s medicinal cauldron?” Su Luo asked, full of curiosity.

At this time, Nen Lu already viewed Su Luo as a dead person, so she felt no need to conceal anything from her. Right now, Nen Lu really needed to let out the ecstasy in her heart or else she would go mad from holding it in.

“I told you you were a good-for-nothing but you refuse to accept it. You haven’t even heard of Zi Huo’s medicinal cauldron. Zi Huo’s medicinal cauldron is a top-notch divine artifact pursued by all the Apothecaries in the world. If they use this medicinal cauldron to refine medicine, then the rate of success will increase by a hundredfold! Never mind, talking to you is simply like playing a lute to a cow (1). You don’t even know what an Apothecary is, right?”

Confronted by Nen Lu’s belittling expression, Su Luo coldly laughed in her heart. Sorry to embarrass you, but this great one actually has a wood-fire dual system and was preparing to level up as an Apothecary.

At this moment, Nen Lu looked at Zi Huo’s medicinal cauldron in wonder. Her sword was emitting mysterious rays of light as she murmured to herself. “It was said that during that time, Elder Zi Huo went into seclusion. Could it be that he finally died here?”

“Elder Zi Huo?” Su Luo again asked, “Who is he?”

Nen Lu rolled her eyes. “You haven’t even heard of Elder Zi Huo? This renowned Elder was the world’s only Grandmaster level Apothecary. Do you know how many famous families and noble clans under the heavens wanted to curry favor with this renowned Elder? Yet you have actually never heard of this Elder Zi Huo. Your stupidity can’t be cured. I really have nothing more to say to you.”

Su Luo knew that the continent’s Apothecaries were divided into levels: Elementary Apothecary, Intermediate Apothecary, Advanced Apothecary, Elite Apothecary, as well as Grandmaster Apothecary.

It was extremely difficult to advance to the next Apothecary level.

However, Apothecaries were rare, thus making every Apothecary extremely precious.

Su Manor’s Apothecary was only an Elementary Apothecary, but due to his existence, he was able to ensure that Su Manor did not topple for the past few decades.

She never expected that the Elder Zi Huo was the legendary rumored Grandmaster Apothecary. It was indeed hard to imagine.

“Wow!” Nen Lu, who was lingering in front of the bookshelf ahead, suddenly loudly shrieked, “Primeval pill recipes! Unexpectedly, 《Obscure Pill Recipes》(2) is also here! Oh heavens! Jackpot, I really hit the jackpot!”

《Obscure Pill Recipes》 was Elder Zi Huo’s personal notes. It was a written record of his life’s knowledge and experience regarding medicinal recipes. Inside, it also had a lot of primeval pill recipes which had not been passed on and were thought to be lost for eternity.

 

 

1) playing a lute to a cow – idiom: figuratively meaning offering a treat to an unappreciative audience; to cast pearls before swine; caviar to the general; to preach to deaf ears; to talk over somebody’s head.

2) 《》 we are going to use the same brackets that the author used for highlighting titles…. I’m sure I’ll eventually find the underline function in WordPress but the brackets looks cooler 😉

    Nooice!

  2. Yukino says:

    I guess that girl got the chance become useful to our MC before she drop dead. The only reason she still alive is probably to explain everything there so MC don’t have to waste time trying to guess about all the stuff.

  3. ioriangel says:

    She’s going to die, at least let her explain everything before she does xD

  4. Manga Hunter says:

    The girl is going to get killed soon after the explanations. Thanks for this.

  5. greedxviii says:

    Correction, little girl… you almost hit the jackpot. Maybe in your next life you’ll learn to kill your target instead of mocking them.

  6. greedxviii says:

    Wait, hold on, didn’t this chick get stabbed in the back repeatedly? And then fall off a cliff? How are her injuries light, wth?

    • Arkeus says:

      There is a BIG difference of strength between each rank in this web novel, and Su Luo’s dagger has the tip broken so can’t stab well.

  7. hipployta says:

    Well that random nobody can die now and Su Luo can study

  8. Midori says:

    thanks a lot!
    hmoh, greed has taken over nen lu, eh? well, too bad for her—this is perfect for nen lu!

  9. John says:

    thanks for the chapter

  10. Peter says:

    Thank you wery much For the Chapter.

  11. Arkeus says:

    Mmmh- Pretty sure that Zi Huo is supposed to be a ‘Great Master/Grand Master’ Apothecary here, but it seems the raw for this chapter are being weird, as they basically skip over the Master description and just talk about Grandmasters in the ranking.

    • June says:

      Yeah probably an author typo… since this is the first time the levels has been introduced. We’ll translate as is and change the title of the higher levels as they appear in later chapters.

  12. Busy Bee says:

    Thanks for the updates. Can’t wait for SL to finish her off and get on with the next level.

  13. Kaiser says:

    For sure SL will defeat this only 3rd ranked whatever. But outside are there 2 other warriors trying to hunt her..

  14. Sean says:

    “Su Manor’s Apothecary was only an Elementary Apothecary, but due to his existence, he was able to ensure that Su Manor did not topple for the past few decades.”

    I thought he was an intermediate one?

    • June says:

      Hummmm the author tend to forget what he/she wrote… and I can’t remember 🙂

      • Som says:

        The author needs a continuity checker. Most writers get editors or relatives to do that. Or lots and lots of Post-It notes, I hear.

        This chapter makes me think of Bruce Willis action scenes where the hero and the bad guy just keep beating the stuffing out of each other, but both keep getting up – the hero asks a question, or finds something, the bad guy explains all, then perishes. And then the hero generally says something both witty and snarky, and then passes out.

        Also, thanks for the chapter.
