Chapter 309: Wrong!
“What do I think about it?” Lou Qianxue chuckled and repeated Lou Jinglei’s words. Then, she shook her head. “No thanks.”
“You!” Lou Jinglei did not even hide his anger. “Lou Qianxue, since you’re already part of the Lou family in Fengyang prefecture, you should—”
“Family Head.” Lou Qianxue nonchalantly cut him off. “Do you know why Master Huo sent me these herbs?”
The question left Lou Jinglei at a loss.
The corner of Lou Qianxue’s lips curled up, and she did not explain either. She asked again, “Family Head, do you think that it would be a good idea to give away, as you please, the things that Master Huo has gifted to me? Are you sure that Master Huo wouldn’t mind it if he finds out?”
“…” Lou Jinglei’s expression changed, and beads of cold sweat formed on his forehead.
Yeah, how could I forget Master Huo!
Master Huo gave these things to Lou Qianxue. If he knew that these things eventually landed in my hands…
Cold sweat trickled down Lou Jinglei’s spine, but his expression became more and more annoyed. “You little girl, what nonsense. I’m just asking if you’re willing to contribute the best to the family. If you don’t want to, I can’t force you, right?”
Even if he did intend to force Lou Qianxue before, with Master Huo coming into the picture, he no longer dared to go ahead with the plan.
He really couldn’t understand what kind of good luck this girl had. Not only did she have an expert of the Heavenly Martial Realm protecting her, even a fourth-grade alchemist in Fengyang prefecture had good expectations of her.
Was I wrong about her?
Lou Jinglei was still in his thoughts when his gaze suddenly fell on Lou Qianxue’s waist. His expression immediately changed. After thinking about something, he asked, “Are you already a second-grade alchemist?”
Lou Qianxue nodded. “Yes.”
A hint of shock appeared on Lou Jinglei’s face. “You have yet to reach sixteen, right? At such a young age, not only have you reached the ninth level of the Spirit Martial Realm, but you are even at the second-grade in alchemy. Wait! A while ago, Lou Potian sent me a second-grade pill. Are you the one who refined it?”
“Yes. That was a Marrow-Washing Pill. It can wash marrows and boost talent.”
“Wash marrows, boost talents?” Lou Jinglei was stunned once again. “Why haven’t I heard of that? How does it compare to the Peiyuan Pill?
“Its effectiveness is multiples times of that,” Lou Qianxue calmly answered.
Lou Jinglei and Steward Lou, who were on the side gasped and showed reactions full of disbelief. “Impossible! How could it…”
“Family Head, if you don’t believe it, you can test the talents of the juniors in the Lou Family of Qingyun City. All of them have eaten the Marrow-Washing Pill.”
“…” Lou Jinglei tried to suppress the shock in his heart. Although he hadn’t verified it yet, he already believed most of it.
It was no wonder that the Heavenly Martial Realm expert had good expectations of her, and it was no wonder that Master Huo personally gave her so many third-grade medical herbs.
If a second-grade alchemist wanted to break through to the next grade, she indeed needed a lot of third-grade medical herbs.
It was ridiculous to think about it. Before, he had even claimed that Lou Qianxue couldn’t use those things… But the truth was that no one except Lou Qianxue was qualified to use those things among the younger generation of the Prefectural Governor’s mansion.
Lou Jinglei took a deep breath and forced himself to calm down.
If he had only given up on those medical herbs earlier on because he was threatened by Master Huo’s reputation…
Now, he was already doing it willingly and on his own accord. He was a smart man. He could sense that Lou Qianxue was even more important than those things.
Moreover, the most frightening thing was that this girl, who had yet to reach sixteen, had not shown a single nervous expression since she had stepped foot into this house…
This girl would have a promising future!
Lou Jinglei’s eyes sank, and he made a decision. “Lou Qianxue, I actually have another reason for calling you here today. I need your help.”
