Chapter 31 Part 2 Mutual secret reveal
At this moment, Greene’s house in City A
Eileen Greene bit her lips and looked at Roa with red eyes, “Brother, I dare not.”
Roa looked at Eileen disappointedly, “Didn’t you feel very happy when you came back last night? You told me that the medical teacher praised you and said you have a talent for pharmacy?”
“Yes,” Eileen nodded, “but now I only learn the basics and don’t know how to make medicine.”
“It’s okay,” Roa rubbed the top of Eileen’s hair. “Eileen is so smart, you will learn to make medicine soon, and you will be even better than Weyner.”
Weyner is currently the guide with the highest spiritual power in the Golden Tower while Eileen’s spiritual power is Level B+. However, because Eileen has a good background and is very popular in school, Weyner always likes to find fault with Eileen. The two have been secretly fighting each other for a long time.
Hearing that, Eileen’s eyes flashed, “I will practice harder so that I won’t lose to her.”
Roa raised his hand, and a medicine pill appeared in his hand, exuding a very light fragrance, “As long as others know that you are the person who made this pill, they will see that you are much better than her, and the Greene family’s status will also soar from your fame.” He paused, “You will be the most powerful guide in the history of the Greene family and the hero of the Greene family.”
“But,” Eileen felt afraid and continued, “I don’t know how to do it. If someone knows the truth, they will definitely scold me.”
Roa frowned, “You might not know how right now, but you can definitely do it in the future. I still have 140 pills in my hand. Even if you only produce 1 pill every week, no one will disdain the slow speed so this batch of medicine in my hand can drag the processing time for quite some time or even years. At that time, you would definitely be able to make better medicine than this.”
Eileen was a little moved, but her face still showing a complicated expression.
Upon seeing this, Roa reminded her, “You are going to graduate next year. Don’t you want to marry the most powerful sentinel? Now the Pharmacy Association and Golden Tower are barely starting to cooperate in making medicine. If you are the first to learn and make a finished product, all sentinels will go crazy for you.”
Eileen’s eyelashes trembled, “Is it really undetected?”
Roa nodded: “You simply reveal to the public that every pill will consume spiritual power. It’s easy to fail if you don’t concentrate so you made your medicine privately.”
“When you finally learned the basics on how to make medicine, you can make them in public. Then, make it look like you fail because of inability to focus so that you can dispel the doubts of others.”
Eileen took the medicine from Roa’s hand and nodded, “I will work hard.”
Roa rubbed the top of Eileen’s hair, “Eileen is the best. This move is just to give you the headstart. From there on, you will have to rely on your pharmaceutical skills.” He smiled before adding, “Eileen will definitely become a high-level pharmacist and will marry the most powerful sentinel.”
Eileen’s eyes lit up, and her cheeks were slightly red.
Then Roa reminded, “I will find an opportunity to spread the news about you making medicine. Don’t worry about anything. If someone asks you if you are that person, you can admit it. Remember to be humble, just say that you are not skilled in the process so you didn’t open up to the public to increase the authenticity, understand?”
Eileen nodded seriously.
After Xiào Mu finished making the pills in the same place, he hesitated whether to continue staying in the forest to visit the scenic spot or go back to his bedroom for a rest and then go out. Then, his terminal vibrated and it is from an unfamiliar number. He connected the call but did not speak for a while. Xiào Mu wants to check if the other party is a salesperson, which he would hang up in the next second if he is.
“Hello, Student Xiao, this is Zhao Sheng, Hawke’s cousin.”
The gentle male voice could be heard from his terminal, and Xiào Mu was stunned, “Hello Manager Zhao, is Hawke’s terminal malfunctioning?”
“No, I asked him for your number. This call is for you.”
Xiào Mu thought about their meeting yesterday, and had a hunch in his heart, “Is there something wrong?”
Zhao Sheng spoke directly, “I want to cooperate with you. I hope you can sell the mid-grade healing pill directly to me, and I will buy it at your selling price. You don’t need to set up a stall on the black market.”
Xiào Mu leaned against a tree and asked, “How can you be sure that I am the seller of medicine?”
Zhao Sheng repeated the series of verifications that he told Hawke to Xiào Mu. After he finished speaking, he paused, “In fact, I still have a doubt. Why do you want to give your medicine to the patients in the infirmary? I heard Hawke say that you are not rich, those medicines are worth much higher than your salary from a part-time job.”
Xiào Mu smiled silently. No wonder Zhao Sheng didn’t doubt his identity, it’s because he thought he only gave medicine to the patients. Xiào Mu pondered for a moment and said, “It’s hard to say, but this doesn’t affect our cooperation, right?”
“Of course. That being said, it means you agreed to cooperate?” Zhao Sheng asked with a smile.
“I don’t seem to have reason to refuse. After all, this cooperation will also save my money from buying black market’s ticket.”
Zhao Sheng chuckled and asked, “How often can you get the medicine, and how much can you get each time?”
Xiào Mu replied vaguely, “Not sure, the time and amount are not stable. I can send it to you once a month, can we bill it according to the amount?”
“Of course,” Zhao Sheng can understand the difficulties. After all, according to his guess, the guide who made the pills doesn’t want to be discovered. “Contact me when you can deliver the medicine, and I will let someone take you to the office. We will pay for the pills then.”
“Okay,” Xiào Mu paused and added, “I hope the lesser people know about this, the better.”
“I strictly keep all information about our clients confidential.”
Xiào Mu is very satisfied to hear that, “Then I will contact you when I deliver the medicine, and then…”
“Wait,” Zhao Sheng said hurriedly when he heard that Xiào Mu is about to hang up. He coughed slightly, “Do you still have those pills to restore physical strength from last time?”
Xiào Mu was taken aback. It is possible that Zhao Sheng found something wrong with the boost pill. Xiào Mu asked tentatively, “That medicine seems to be of little use to you.”
“It’s for my partner. He is a guide with weak physical strength,” Zhao Sheng said in a gentle voice. Then as if he thought of something funny, he chuckled and said, “The medicine is taken in the middle of [s][e][x]. I enjoy the session a lot, and he likes it very much as well.”
Xiào Mu was caught off guard by the sudden ‘car drive’1 and got fed some dog food. The corner of his mouth twitched. The pill is for recovering stamina, not an excitement medicine! On the other hand, the remaining low-grade boost pill is of no use to him. Better not waste them and sell for money. He replied, “Yes, there are about 80 or 90 pills left. I am not sure about the exact number. I will go to the infirmary tonight. Do you want to buy them?”
“I want it all.” Zhao Sheng said immediately2.
Listening to the excited tone in the voice of the other party, Xiào Mu looked at the sky speechlessly. This person must have thought of something unsuitable for children. After hanging up the call, Xiào Mu went back to the dormitory. He took 2 high-grade healing pills and 2 mid-grade boost pills to keep with him, while the rest of the pills were hidden in the corner of the closet. Next, he took out the low-grade boost pill and put them in the backpack. Seeing that it is still early, Xiào Mu leaned on the sofa to scroll through the forum and watched some drama. When it is 6.00 pm, he went to the cafeteria for dinner, and head to the infirmary.
Hawke is already there when he reached. Upon seeing him, Hawke immediately held his hand with glowing eyes and dragged him all the way to his laboratory behind the ward. After he closed the door, Hawke leaned against the door panel and looked at him eagerly. Xiào Mu asked in confusion, “What’s the matter? Why do you look at me like this?”
Hawke leaned close to Xiào Mu, his lips almost touching Xiào Mu’s ears, and whispered, “Will you introduce him to me?”
“Who?” Xiào Mu was confused.
“The guide,” Hawke said, then he looked around cautiously, as if he is afraid of being heard, “the guide who made the pills.”
Xiào Mu was stunned by the question, “How did you know?”
Hawke explained, “My cousin said that he wanted to do business cooperation with you. Then he said that you are in contact with a guide who knows how to make medicine and can get the medicine from that guide.” He pouted, “You didn’t tell me such important things.”
Xiào Mu suddenly felt complicated. Hawke looked cute, and acting like a baby doesn’t look bad, but his(H) height is 180 cm, which made him very stressed.
“You know right, apart from guides who are married, anyone who is found to be a guide must enter the Golden Tower,” Xiào Mu said while looking at Hawke’s expression. “He doesn’t want to be deprived of his freedom.”
Hawke hurriedly said, “I’m not going to tell anyone,” he paused. Looking at Xiào Mu with his eyes wide open, his eyes are clear when he asked, “we are friends, aren’t we?”
Xiào Mu nodded, “Of course.”
Hawke said: “You and he are friends. Since you are willing to hide the truth for him, you will definitely hide it for me, right?”
Xiào Mu’s mouth opened slightly. He had anticipated what Hawke would say next, and before he could stop him, Hawke had already blurted out, “I am also a guide.”
After speaking, he looked at Xiào Mu expectantly, “You won’t tell others, right? So will you introduce your guide friend to me now?”
Xiào Mu looked at Hawke who stared at him with trust and expectation. His eyes were clean as a newborn baby, so Xiào Mu couldn’t say any words of rejection. Perhaps he could tell Hawke that both of them are hidden guides, and they are in the same situation. Moreover, they are friends. He smiled and said, “Yes, I won’t tell others. And I will also introduce you… No, you don’t need to be introduced, you are already friends.”
After speaking out, Xiào Mu felt very relaxed.
Hawke blinked and suddenly jumped up, “Oh my God, who is it?!” He whirled around and grabbed his hair while trying to think. “You say he’s already my friend? Which one it is? I can’t even think of who it will be.” Then Hawke stopped abruptly and asserted, “You must be joking. If I were friends with him, how could I not notice it at all?!”
Xiào Mu didn’t know whether he should praise his perfect cover, or express his helplessness at Hawke’s slowness. He pointed his finger at himself, “That guide is me.”
