Chapter 246: The Ostentatious Xiao Ying
A curious ray of light flitted past Baili Moyun’s eyes.
As he patted Xiao Tao’s head, he recalled how Xiao Tao had always ignored Lin Yanxi when she’d sought him out to tease Xiao Tao.
He thought, Lin Yanxi seems very interested in the Legendary Venomous Insects. She went to Honglei and A’li as well. Can it be that…
“Alright.” Ye Jiuge withdrew her needle. She had finally removed the Antiparasitic Spirit from the green praying mantis.
Fortunately, it was not severely poisoned, and treatment had been timely.
“Sisi! Thank you!” The green praying mantis expressed its gratitude in a soft voice. Compared to the noisy Xiao Tao, it was much more civilized.
“Good boy!” Ye Jiuge patted the green praying mantis’ head and gave it a Cherry Pill.
It swallowed the pill slowly and brushed lightly against Ye Jiuge’s palm in humble gratitude.
“Chirp chirp chirp! Cherry Pill!” Xiao Tao began shrieking immediately when it saw the Cherry Pill.
It did not go so far as to steal the green praying mantis’ food. Still, it began circling frantically around Baili Moyun while whining, “Delicious, delicious, delicious!”
“Stop it!” Baili Moyun had a headache from Xiao Tao’s screams. He reached out to catch it, but it dodged his hands and assaulted its owner with an even more frantic cry. “I want to eat, to eat, to eat…”
“Eldest Miss, please save me!” Baili Moyun had no choice but to cover his ears.
At times, Xiao Tao was cute and angelic, but when it turned nasty, it was like the devil.
“Alright. Isn’t it just a Cherry Pill? You are so immature.” Ye Jiuge glared at Xiao Tao and took out another Cherry Pill.
Xiao Tao immediately flew over to her and hugged the pill. Then, it hid on Baili Moyun’s head and began to chew happily.
The world was finally peaceful!
Although Baili Moyun’s hair was a mess, he looked as though he had nothing else left to live for.
“What are you doing?” At that moment, Gong Honglei finally finished his work, and he walked over with Nangong Li.
“Eldest Miss is helping cure your Little Greenie.” As he spoke, Baili Moyun gave Ye Jiuge a meaningful look.
He did not say that the green praying mantis was poisoned because he worried that Gong Honglei would confront Lin Yanxi.
Ye Jiuge flashed a knowing smile. Then, she said to Gong Honglei, “Little Greenie is just not acclimatized yet. It is nothing severe.”
“That’s great.” Gong Honglei sighed in relief. He doted on his green praying mantis.
Changing the topic, Baili Moyun asked, “A’li, why don’t you seize the opportunity and ask Eldest Miss to check on your Xiao Ying?”
Hearing this, Nangong Li summoned Xiao Ying without a word.
Xiao Ying had black feathers and red eyes. It lifted its chin slightly, trying to imitate its owner’s pride.
However, although Nangong Li was indeed arrogant, Xiao Ying was merely ostentatious.
“It’s very healthy.” Ye Jiuge had already heard about Xiao Ying’s circumstances from Xiao Tao, so her inspection was quick. Finally, she gave Xiao Ying a Cherry Pill.
Facing the delicious food, the haughty and aloof eagle immediately lowered its noble head and quickly swallowed the Cherry Pill. Then, it lifted its chin and turned into an ostentatious eagle again.
“Eldest Miss, can you tell us where you purchased these pills?” Nangong Li asked.
It was easy to see that the unsmiling Nangong Li cared a lot about his Xiao Ying. Otherwise, he would not have taken the initiative to ask.
“I produced these pills myself. I call it the Cherry Pill. It has the effects of calming the mind and gathering Qi. It can nourish the meridians as well,” Ye Jiuge spoke highly of her Cherry Pills.
“Mind-calming and Qi-gathering?” Gong Honglei looked at the tiny red pill in doubt. He asked, “Can humans eat them?”
“Of course.” Ye Jiuge nodded. After all, humans had evolved from apes, so the pills worked on them too.
“I will try one.” Baili Moyun rushed to be the first to grab a pill. He threw it into his mouth and began chewing.
After he had finished eating, he expressed his surprise, “The taste is great! Although its mind-calming effect is a little weaker than that of specialized pills, it is worth buying. How will you price your pills?”
Baili Moyun thought, It would be great if I could buy some for my female juniors to taste.
“I will sell them at a discounted price. Two hundred silver taels for a bottle. There are sixty pills in one bottle,” Ye Jiuge said.
“Two hundred silver taels for sixty pills? That is so cheap!” Baili Moyun was in disbelief. After all, a Mind Soothing Pill cost more than five hundred silver taels.
“I said it was discounted.” Ye Jiuge hoped that Baili Moyun and the rest would treat Xiao Tao and the others well. As such, she did not expect to take their money.
“Give me a hundred bottles!” Baili Moyun cried out with heroic spirit.
“Give me a hundred bottles too!” Nangong Li followed.
“Me too!” Gong Honglei did not hesitate.
Ye Jiuge thought, They are conspicuous spenders!
Ye Jiuge was filled with emotions. Xiao Tao and the others had picked the right owners.
“I don’t have that many on me at the moment. I can only give each one of you ten bottles for now.” The thirty additional bottles had to be dug out from Zi Shang’s ration.
“We will give you the money first. You can pass us the pills when it is convenient for you!” Baili Moyun was ready to pay up on the spot.
However, he did not use silver taels. Instead, he paid with Spiritual Jades.
A Spiritual Jade was worth two hundred silver taels in the large Spiritual Cities, and it was mainly used for the cultivation of Spiritual Practitioners.
The currency unit above Spiritual Jade was Spiritual Pearl. A Spiritual Pearl was worth ten thousand gold pieces, and supplies were limited. Spiritual Jades were also sold in the Lei Kingdom. However, their price was higher—two hundred and fifty silver taels for one.
Ye Jiuge had no use for Spiritual Jade, so she had never purchased it. However, she knew that its value was stable and it was the common currency used by the larger Spiritual Cities.
In addition to paying with Spiritual Jades, Baili Moyun and the rest insisted on using the larger Spiritual Cities’ exchange rates. They expressed that they were unwilling to take advantage of Ye Jiuge.
Ye Jiuge knew that Baili Moyun and the others did not take what ot them was an insignificant amount of silver taels to heart, so she did not decline.
After completing the deal, Ye Jiuge’s relationship with Baili Moyun and Nangong Li improved significantly. Even Gong Honglei followed closely behind her, suddenly eagerly attentive.
Yue Lingjun’s eyes turned red with jealousy. Viciously, she said, “What a vixen. How can she not be satisfied with that handsome guard, Ye Zi? She is such a sl*t. Always flirting and attracting the opposite sex.”
Lin Yanxi, who was beside Yue Lingjun, advised her gently, “Lingjun, you don’t have to split hairs over that country bumpkin. You will ruin our great sects’ reputation.”
“I will embarrass her sooner or later,” Yue Lingjun said nastily.
Lin Yanxi’s smile became even gentler, and her eyes turned toward Wang Haoqiang.
Wang Haoqiang happened to meet her gaze, and both understood each other’s meaning.
Sow discord and attack using another’s strength!
Lin Yanxi and Wang Haoqiang thought that their interactions were very discreet, but Gong Xifan had witnessed their every action.
However, he did not say anything. Instead, he continued to lead everyone forward in haste.
Everyone hastened throughout the journey, and they finally neared Bloodcloud Peak in the evening.
“Eldest Miss, didn’t you say your men were nearby?” Gong Xifan asked. He felt an uneasiness in his heart when he did not see Ye Zi.
“That’s right. I will call them here now.” Ye Jiuge curled her fingers, placed them at her lips, and emitted three long whistles followed by two short ones.
Moments later, two dark shadows appeared mysteriously. Respectfully, they bowed toward Ye Jiuge and said, “Greetings to you, Eldest Miss.”
