In a quiet room
Yi Xu helped the two by pouring them each a cup of tea before quietly retreating.
Mu Ru Yue sipped the tea before placing her cup back down. She looked at the elder before her and waited for him to start the conversation.
“Little girl, let me ask you this: were you the one that manufactured the Return of Spring Pill?” Wu Yu gently rubbed his fists together as he smilingly looked at Mu Ru Yue.
With raised brows, Mu Ru Yue replied, “That’s right; I’m the one that manufactured the Return of Spring Pill. Was there something wrong with it?”
“No, how can there be a problem?” Wu Yu’s eyes lit up. This was the young girl he had been seeking. “Moreover, little girl, were the medicinal plants you sold to the Return of Spring Hall the 50-year-old medicinal plants you had recently bought? We placed a unique marking on all of our Return of Spring Hall’s medicinal plants, so we could tell from a glance.”
This was beyond Mu Ru Yue’s expectations.
She was stunned as she hadn’t thought that the Return of Spring Hall would actually mark their medicinal plants. She had neglected such a matter….
“Little girl, don’t worry. I won’t leak this information, nor will I ask you how you did so. I just wanted to clarify the matter.”
Wu Yu smiled like a crafty fox. ‘This young girl’s Alchemist talent is high. With some nurturing, she would definitely become an outstanding Alchemist.’
Suddenly, there was a cry of exclamation heard.
Elder Zhao had been silent as he was thinking about why that young girl’s voice sounded so familiar. When he thought of the places where he might have heard her voice, a certain figure appeared in his mind.
It was just Mu Ru Yue’s unluckiness. If it were ordinary people, they wouldn’t be able to differentiate between her voice and her identity. But how could Elder Zhao be someone ordinary?
Moreover, ever since that innate talent test, Elder Zhao had been secretly helping Grandmaster Wu Yu find her. The young girl’s voice and smile had flashed through his mind a countless number of times and he could not get any more familiar with it.
“Elder Zhao, what are you talking about?” Wu Yu was unhappy that his chat had been interrupted, so his expression turned slightly unpleasant.
“Grandmaster Wu Yu, do you still remember that talent I had told you about previously? The one that not only had colourless innate talent, but was also a genius with powerful mental power that even destroyed the testing stone? She’s that genius!”
Grandmaster Wu Yu couldn’t stay calm as he abruptly stood up, looking startled at Mu Ru Yue. Shortly, his astonishment turned into excitement that couldn’t be calmed.
“Little girl, I’ve been searching for you for such a long time. I didn’t expect my luck to be so good that the two people I was searching for turned out to be you.”
“Searching for me?” Mu Ru Yue raised her brows. “Why were you searching for me?”
“Hehe!” Wu Yu smiled. “Little girl, I wish to recruit you as my disciple.”
Mu Ru Yue drank a mouthful of tea to lubricate her throat as she replied without lifting her head, “I refuse.”
Her words was decisive and without any uncertainties. It stunned the few people in the room. Who was Grandmaster Wu Yu? He was the Chief Alchemist of the Qing Yun Sect. Even the head of the Sect would have to respect him.
Such a high-ranking person wanted to recruit a disciple, but was rejected? If those arrogant disciples of the Qing Yun Sect were to hear of this, they would probably have vicious thoughts of beating this girl up.
“Little girl, you should at least give me a reason for rejecting my offer.” Wu Yu didn’t expect Mu Ru Yue would reject him, so he was a little stunned.
“Being your disciple doesn’t have any benefits.” Mu Ru Yue glanced at him, her reply neither slow nor fast.
She never did things that gained her no benefits.
