The Tempestuous Consort – Wilfully Pampered by the Beastly Highness

Chapter 44: Master Shen Sure Knows What He’s Doing

“I see a lot of pill-making talent in the Third Miss Feng. Does she have any intention of seeking a teacher, I wonder?”

Feng Chengzhi extended an olive branch, wanting only to examine the Marrow Cleansing Pill further. What ‘talents’ in pill making could Feng Xiuyu possibly have? Taking her on as a student would be like taking on an extra medical errand child. Furthermore, Feng Xiuyu was well on her way to becoming the Third Princess Consort. Not only would he look good as the Princess Consort’s master, but it would also open future doors. What a great plan.

Feng Xiang couldn’t help but raise an eyebrow at this suggestion and was quick to dismiss him. “As Yu’er has other plans in mind, I’m afraid that we have to turn down Alchemist Feng’s kind offer. However, we can loan the Marrow Cleansing Pill to you for a night. It’s fine so long as you return it tomorrow.” Alchemists could only be pleased, not provoked. All in all, there was no harm in making friends with an Alchemist.

“I appreciate it, Clan Head Feng.” Feng Chengzhi carefully cupped the Marrow Cleansing Pill in his hands and forgot all about Feng Xiang’s rejection. After all, he’d only asked in the spur of the moment.

Feng Tianlan raised an eyebrow slightly upon hearing the conversation. What they’d just decided would greatly benefit her in the same way as if someone sent a pillow her way just as she was feeling drowsy.

Just then, Elder Chen walked up to the stage, emerging from the backyard, and announced, “We would like to thank everyone for attending this auction held by the Ruyi Trade House. Allow me to present a small gift from the Ruyi Trade House’s new master, Master Shen.”

As he was making the announcement, Shopkeeper Zhou walked out with a tray in hand. On it, there were some Qi Fostering Pills, albeit with some impurities. From the looks of it, they seemed to be Grade 8 Qi Fostering Pills with a 50% fusion rate. Nevertheless, they still cost a small fortune.

“These are Master Shen’s instructions. Here are small gifts for everyone who attended—please, do accept them.” Elder Chen smiled kindly and motioned to Shopkeeper Zhou to distribute the pills.

“These are genuine Grade 8 Qi Fostering Pills with a 50% fusion rate.”

“How generous of them. There must be over a hundred attendees at the auction. Giving out these as gifts will easily cost them one to two million Gold Coins.”

“Since when did the Ruyi Trade House change its master? Their previous owner did not have the last name Shen.”

“Why should we care? It’s a free Grade 8 Qi Fostering Pill. It’s free, so we might as well take it. This Master Shen sure knows what he’s doing.”

“… ..”

While the Grade 8 Qi Fostering Pills that were given out for free were medium-priced, they still pleased those who liked to take advantage. They immediately thought favorably of the Ruyi Trade House, even more so than the Tianhai Trade House. Seeing that he had achieved his goal, Elder Chen chuckled lightly. The Young Master had planned it well and managed to snag many hearts in one go. Undoubtedly, more people would be attending their next auction.

Feng Tianlan frowned slightly. This Master Shen that they were talking about seemed to be her alter ego, but since when did she become the new master of the Ruyi Trade House? This had been decided without her knowledge; she had not refined any Qi Fostering Pills, and she never said those words. She would need to verify what was going on later.

“Feng Tianlan.” Feng Xiuyu stepped right in front of Feng Tianlan with a Qi Fostering Pill in hand. She gave her a demeaning look as if giving alms to a beggar, and held out the Qi Fostering Pill. “I’ll give you a Grade 8 Qi Fostering Pill and a Grade 9 Spirit Boosting Pill.”

“Hmm?” Feng Tianlan lifted her eyelids in a somewhat lazy manner. She scanned Feng Xiuyu, her eyes domineering and sneering at the same time.

This was the expression of Feng Tianlan’s that Feng Xiuyu hated the most. Everyone could see that Feng Tianlan was the one sitting down and that she’d had to look up. Not only was her pressure stronger, the aura that she carried was also more imperial. She looked at her like she was less than an ant.

“We’ll be battling the day after tomorrow. I’m about to level-up to a First-stage Spiritualist, yet you are still at the sixth-level of Gathering Spirit. I’ll give you some pills to boost your abilities, lest you say that I’m bullying the weak when you lose horribly to me.”

Feng Xiuyu looked at Feng Tianlan with pity. How dare an unworthy sl*t look at her belittlingly. If you find any errors ( broken links, non-standard content, etc.. ), Please let us know so we can fix it as soon as possible.
