The dean had the curtain lifted and Xu Lian was still diagnosing why the other party’s injuries had worsened instead after drinking the elixir.
“As you can see, the result is very clear, and now I, the Dean, will personally announce that Qian Minghui has successfully passed the test to become a junior pharmacist.”
Xu Lian couldn’t believe that she had lost just like that.
Everyone came forward to congratulate Dongfang Minghui, having an additional junior pharmacist in the pharmacy seemed like a very big event to be celebrated.
Dongfang Minghui didn’t even have time to go ahead and stomp two feet at the disillusioned Pharmacist Xu Lian. She was crowded around by the enthusiastic pharmacists.
“Congratulations Junior Sister.”
“I look forward to your guidance in the future.”
Dongfang Wanyu couldn’t help but laugh at her being overwhelmed by the crowd, and after watching her for a while, she quietly disappeared not alerting anyone just like how she came.
Xu Lian still couldn’t believe that she lost, but with hindsight, she realized that she had fallen for Dongfang Minghui’s trick. The other party didn’t just want to challenge her but also wanted to use her as a stepping stone, just like what she had done to her master. Trampling others on the ground to climb up.
“Impossible.” Xu Lian shouted.
The shout didn’t disturb them, but it was heard by the Dean.
“You still don’t understand what’s wrong?” Although the Dean was still smiling, there was still a bit of harshness in his narrowed eyes.
Xu Lian shook her head and muttered, “It can’t be, I clearly diagnosed that the other party to be poisoned with silk net poison, how could this happen?”
Silk net poison?
Dean tugged at his white eyebrows, “Silk net poison does invade one’s internal organs, and it is also true that the initial stage of poisoning is abdominal pain and the symptoms are similar but did you ask the patient how they feel?”
This question is intended for those who think that they have an extraordinary ability, and think they know everything. But in the treatment of patients, if you do not act cautiously, you cannot be considered a competent medical practitioner.
Words have already come to this point, if Xu Lian still didn’t know where she went wrong, it would be a waste of her many years as a pharmacist.
“You should go back and reflect on where you went wrong.”
Xu Lian stood up in disgrace, walking to the opposite side, her face cold, her fists clenched and her nails pinched into her flesh. Without knowing it, listening to the laughter coming from behind was like a sharp blade, ruthlessly inserting into her chest, from now on, all of her good reputation from the past would be gone.
It was all Qian Minghui’s fault, and she hated the fact that she couldn’t crush the other party and break her bones.
The Dean couldn’t stop shaking his head as he stared at her back and sighed, hoping that reflection would make her realize where exactly she needed to correct herself, otherwise her life as a pharmacist would come to a halt.
“Alright, it’s time for everyone to disperse, go back and prepare for the promotion test in three months.” As soon as the dean gave the word, everyone could only disperse.
Dongfang Minghui couldn’t help but breathe a sigh of relief, “Dean, thanks for your help, otherwise…Hey, where did Seventh sister go?”
She wanted to celebrate with her.
Dean saw her sad little face and said, “Your Seventh sister must have left beforehand.”
Alright she consoled herself, the Female Protagonist was a cultivation addict by nature, it was hard enough for her to spare four or five hours for her.
“As of tomorrow, you’ll be moving directly into the main Pharmacy residences, just before there was a Pharmacist that left and his place is unused so as a new Pharmacist you can have that courtyard.” The Dean stroked his beard, feeling that this mid-level pharmacist’s courtyard should be a good compensation for any wrongs she suffered before but was also meant as a bit of a promotion from him.
When he went back, he would have to study the effects of those pills.
Dongfang Minghui aimed a glance at him, “Lord Dean, as you know I have my own courtyard near Angelica garden, I temporarily don’t want to move away yet.”
For one, moving Blue Star Dream again would be very troublesome, not to mention the addition of a beautiful geranium in her yard which she didn’t know would grow successfully or not.
For the sake of these cute little plants, Dongfang Minghui had to give up the benefits that were at her fingertips and couldn’t help but sigh, “But Dean, I want to let my Seventh sister live in my courtyard, I don’t know if it is feasible to do?.”
“Naturally, it’s not.” The Dean glanced at her with narrowed eyes and saw her little face collapse, looking so sad that it looked like she thought the sky was about to fall.
“However, you have haven’t accepted the courtyard I arranged for you, so I can grant you what you want.” Lord Dean’s words were very subtle.
Good thing Dongfang Minghui heard it too, as she quietly said, “So I can let my sister live in my small courtyard?”
The Dean coughed, putting his hands behind his back and pretending not to hear, “I’ll give you a day off, come to my office tomorrow to report for duty!”
That’s an agreement, right?
Agreement, agreement, agreement!
Dongfang Minghui went back and immediately shared the good news with her two best friends, Blue Star Dream was immediately happy to hear that someone else would soon be living in the house.
It hadn’t been more than a few days since the beautiful geranium’s twigs had been buried in the soil, she stared at the small patch of soil and circled around it but couldn’t see anything.
“Don’t waste my time and grow well you…”
The news of her becoming a pharmacist quickly spread to everyone in the pharmacy, the steward brother knew that she had passed the assessment and took a set of clothes that only a junior pharmacist had and gave it to her.
Previously, the medicine gardeners’ clothes were more of a uniform and very ugly in grey, she didn’t expect that the pharmacists also had uniforms, but it was more of a silvery-white, with a pattern on the chest and sleeves, which looked much better than the medicine gardeners’ clothes.
“You didn’t know, did you? If you were to walk around in the Venus Empire in this, many people would have to pay you some respect. Look here, this is the emblem of the Pharmacy and your name. If you encounter any difficulties, you can go to any of our Pharmacy Union branches for help in the whole Seven Colored Continent.
“Thank you, senior brother.” The clothes still had to be accepted, and if her days were bad then just pawn them, they would be worth a lot of money by estimation.
Dongfang Minghui was not impressed but looking at his face accepted it, for a piece of clothing besides exchanging for money what’s the use?
“Little Sister, you have to change your title too, I’ll call you Pharmacist Qian from now on.” The steward brother smiled.
“Don’t call me senior brother, I’m just a steward in Angelica Garden, call me Yong Xing from now on.” Yong Xing couldn’t help but mock himself.
Dongfang Minghui trailed off, “Senior brother, I’m going to be angry if you call me that, I’ve been coming to Angelica Garden since I started. Do we need to be so distant in our friendship when you helped me before? In the future, I’ll still call you senior brother, you can just call me junior sister.”
She’d spoken with the medicinal herbs in the medicine garden and knew some small tidbits of information that others didn’t know.
For example, Yong Xing, who had been within the Royal Academy since birth, was a child born privately to two medicinal gardeners, probably because they were afraid of being punished, they threw the newly born toddler in the back mountain and left him to fate. The child starved for days and cried so hard that he lost his strength. If the headmaster had not found him while searching for medicines, he would have died.
At that time, the Dean found a patch of Yong Xing grass growing around him, so he named him Yong Xing.
Yong Xing was completely unaware that the person in front of him knew about his background, but hearing her say that made him feel that he had thought too much and that friendships shouldn’t be tied down by these matters.
Back then, he was still young, but because his qualifications were decent enough, he easily took the position of a steward. Among that batch of medicine gardeners, Xu Lian appeared, and in order to deliberately please him, Xu Lian would always talk with him, making his heart that lacked love grow warm, but that concern had disappeared when she became a junior pharmacist. There was only sarcasm and warnings left.
Thinking of those things, Yong Xing still felt as if there was a stone in his heart and he was a little hurt.
“Tomorrow you have a big day so you should rest, is there anything you want to do?” Yong Xing asked happily.
Dongfang Minghui wanted the Female Protagonist to move in, so she nodded. “I want to cook and treat you guys to a meal.”
Dongfang Wanyu was surprised to hear a knock on the door and opened it, “Ninth sister why are you here? How did you find this place?”
Since she had been promoted to a junior pharmacist, Dongfang Minghui felt that it was suddenly much easier for her to walk within the Royal Academy, especially when she wore a pharmacist’s clothes. People would take a look at her wherever she went.
Dongfang Minghui pointed to the logo on her clothes, “They told me as soon as I asked.”
Dongfang Wanyu got the general idea from her smug tone, but looking at her looking like a proud kitten wanting praise, she smiled “Well, my little pharmacist, to celebrate your promotion, Seventh Sister has a gift for you too.”
She immediately stared, wow hello, did she just hear something wrong, the Female Protagonist actually said she had a gift for her.
Blink blink and then blink again. She kept blinking her eyes in anticipation.
When Dongfang Wanyu saw her silly face she laughed and took out a gift from her space ring. A small box was placed in front of her.
Dongfang Minghui held the small box in her hands, it was quite heavy, “Seventh sister what’s in it?”
Dongfang Wanyu looked mystified, “Open it yourself.”
She apprehensively unwrapped it, and there was something lying quietly inside the box, she looked confused, “Hey, it’s an egg.”
“This egg is supposed to be the young egg of some kind of magical beast, I picked it up by accident.” Dongfang Wanyu said offhandedly.
Dongfang Minghui was thunderstruck by the Female Protagonist’s gift, giving a gift of an egg, an unknown egg.
“Thank you Seventh sister.”
Regardless, Dongfang Minghui held the egg, which was bigger than her hands, in her arms and stroking it twice, in a good mood.
Dongfang Minghui soothed her startled heart before saying, “Seventh Sister, I came today to tell you the good news.”
Dongfang Wanyu looked at her with a serious face, but in her heart, she couldn’t stop asking if she had given her the wrong gift. Just now Ninth Sister didn’t seem to be as happy as she thought she would be. But seeing the other side hold the egg so tightly, she still reassured herself that it seemed Ninth Sister liked it.
In fact, Dongfang Minghui had to hold it tightly, not only because the egg was big and heavy but this egg was too slippery! If not for that she’d accidentally let it slip on the ground and then it would definitely crack…
The Female Protagonist would definitely fly into a fit of rage if she broke it!
It’s just a broken egg, the egg isn’t as important as the person!
“Seventh Sister, I have good news for you, the Dean has given you permission to live in my little courtyard .” Dongfang Minghui leaned in to her ear and whispered.
The warm breath sprayed on her neck, unexpectedly gave her a tingling feeling, Dongfang Wanyu uncomfortably moved her head to the side a little to keep a certain distance from Dongfang Minghui.
She sort of understood that it seemed Dongfang Minghui was serious about the joking remark she made the other day. She was just trying to imply to her that she was nothing unless she had the right to speak and a certain authority.
She didn’t expect the other party to misinterpret her words, but this was also fine.
“Then, I will have to bother you, Ninth Sister.”
Dongfang Minghui smirked, now that she was in the Female Protagonist’s good graces, her super aura would hopefully be able to bring her some good luck.
Hey, there’s going to be a lucky woman living in her yard soon, soon she and her friends will have good luck too.
Dongfang Wanyu packed up that day, but there wasn’t really anything to take with her, so she locked the door and followed Dongfang Minghui to the courtyard.
When Yong Xing saw them return, he immediately said, “Miss Qian, I’ve already packed your room.”
Dongfang Minghui couldn’t bear to see the other party always stooping so low, “Brother, she is my Seventh sister, don’t be so polite. From now on you can treat her the same as you treat me.”
This was followed by an introduction to the Female Protagonist, “Seventh sister, this is Senior Brother Yong Xing, I had a lot of help from him at Angelica Garden, he’s a good person.”
Yong Xing hung his head, but his eyes couldn’t help but be a little moist.
“Good, thank you Brother Yong for taking care of my ninth sister, I’m Wanyu, you can call me by my name from now on.” Dongfang Wanyu smiled at him.
Yong Xing nodded and turned to Dongfang Minghui, “Little Sister, do you still need to prepare anything for tomorrow?”
If his previous care was for Situ Hao’s sake, then his future care was what he willingly gave.
Dongfang Minghui shook his head, “Thank you senior brother, you’ve worked hard today, go home early and rest.”
That night, Dongfang Minghui just tossed and turned in her bed, unable to fall asleep, she was so excited that the Female Protagonist had moved in.
She could continue to cultivate a strong friendship from now on, she has to work hard and rise up.
When she inadvertently skimmed over to the egg in a nest on the side, Dongfang Minghui looked so depressed she wanted to die.
“You little shit.” She took the egg into her arms and smacked it, the shell was fine, but instead, her hand was red.
“I’m telling you, don’t fool around just because Seventh sister has your back. The day you break your shell will be the perfect time for me to discipline you, so just wait.” She simply sat up straight and spoke viciously to the egg, “And you better pop out a pretty little animal or else I’ll fry you up as an egg and make an omelet for breakfast, you think I don’t dare?”
She sat in bed talking till she got tired and automatically fell asleep holding her egg. She naturally didn’t notice the egg automatically moved to a different position, close to her stomach, and then turned around.
The next day, Dongfang Minghui got up early in the morning, in accordance with the usual routine she took care of blue star dream and beautiful geranium pouring some water, loosening the soil, checking for insects, and so on.
After everything was done, after a short while, Yong Xing moved all the purchased food to the courtyard.
Dongfang Minghui then began to diligently clean and sort the vegetables.
“Little Sister, I can’t tell that you’ve cooked before with these hands?” Yong Xing pointed at her slender hands.
“Senior brother, you are making fun of me, I can’t help it. When you are hungry, you will think about finding food. In fact, I am also thinking about it all the time.” Dongfang Minghui hesitated and said a bunch of nonsense.
As soon as Dongfang Minghui got up, Dongfang Wanyu knew it all, she even knew about yesterday when she flipped around and mumbled to the egg.
That was the benefit of having a stronger spiritual power.
If Dongfang Minghui knew that the Female Protagonist had heard her grumbling she probably wouldn’t dare to talk nonsense anymore.
Dongfang Wanyu watched them for a while, then closed the door and continued to practice.
She didn’t stop her meditation until there was a knock on the door outside.
“Seventh sister, breakfast is ready.”
Dongfang Minghui called out many times outside, there was no movement at all from the inside, she thought the Female Protagonist had gone out and turned around just as the door opened.
Dongfang Wanyu smelled the fragrance of food, in fact, the higher the level of cultivation, the less food she needed to consume, more often than not, she felt that she didn’t actually need to eat, relying on just her spiritual energy would be enough.
The three people shared a large table of food.
When Dongfang Wanyu saw the table full of dishes, she suddenly had a little more appetite, she picked up her chopsticks and took a bite, the taste was a little sour and spicy, but it was very appetizing.
“Sister Wanyu, this is specially made for you by Little Sister, you should eat more.”
Dongfang Minghui also looked at her with an apprehensive face, just in case the other party said it wasn’t delicious. When she was in the Purple Demon Mountain Range, whether her meat was cooked well or not, or whether it was cold or not, the Female Protagonist would bluntly state it out, often wounding her young mind to the point of wincing.
“Good.” Dongfang Wanyu ate two more bites.
The three of us, you eat some food, I eat some food, it was a very warm happy meal.
Dongfang Minghui ate a little too much, she hadn’t cooked a good meal for herself for a long time, it was the first time since arriving in the Seven Colored Continent.
However, Dongfang Wanyu was puzzled. The Ninth Miss of the Dongfang Family has always been served by maids since she was a child, so when did she learn to cook so many dishes?
A beginner shouldn’t be able to make a delicious meal like this.
There was a problem.
Dongfang Minghui had no idea that she had been exposed.
At the moment, she was still stupidly busy clearing the table, not realizing there were loopholes in her actions everywhere.
