Chapter 243 243: Bottomless Idiocy!
After Tang Li Xue entered deep into Quanhai City, she wanted to bring out these two disciples from her medium-rank Space Pouch first and wake up these two disciples to ask about what they had to buy.
But there was no secluded place with no one around here, all crook and cranny of this city were packed full of people.
Tang Li Xue wanted to rent a room in the inn at the heart of Quanhai City and woke up these two disciples inside the room, but Tang Li Xue immediately realized her current biggest problem...
She has no money!
Forget about renting a room, she did not even have any cent to buy one candied fruit!
'Sigh... It seems I really have no other choice other than wake those two...' Tang Li Xue thought as she rubbed her forehead in frustration.
Tang Li Xue took a turn and entered the nearby dark alley while activating her [Ethereal Form] again. Her slender figure vanished once again under some people's watch.
Those people rubbed their eyes a few times before shaking their heads and think of that scene as an illusion.
With her [Ethereal Form] ability, Tang Li Xue could easily pass through any wall and obstacle without being noticed by anyone, so she stealthy entered the inn.
Tang Li Xue passed through the locked door easily and slipped into an empty room inside the inn.
She took out the two unconscious disciples from her medium-rank Space Pouch and threw them onto the floor before used her [Talisman of Regeneration +2] onto them again to cure the wound on their head.
This time it took a few minutes for them to regain their consciousness, and they started to stand up wobbly like a pair of drunken people.
"What happen again this time?!" The male disciple wanted to shout out loud angrily at first, but he was immediately assaulted by dizziness and headache then staggered around. He almost fell onto the floor again if Tang Li Xue did not hold his shoulder firmly to prevent him from falling.
"We... were ambushed by the guards from behind... and you two almost got caught before... then I bravely safe the two of you away from them... and run into Quanhai City. We are inside Quanhai City's inn right now." Tang Li Xue explained vaguely to them.
"Oh, so we already inside the city now?" The female disciple asked with a skeptical tone.
"Yes, we are currently inside Quanhai City's inn right now. You only need to buy all the herbs you want, and then we can go back to Myriad Foxes Academy." Tang Li Xue said calmly, but her heart was not calm at all. In fact, she was really nervous.
'I swear if they dare to say that they want to sight-seeing around the city after buying all the herbs, I would definitely knock them out again later and forcefully bring them back to Myriad Foxes Academy whether they like it or not!' Tang Li Xue thought as she silently gnashed her teeth.
"Then what are we waiting for right now?! Let's go now and finish this assignment quickly!" The male disciple said with a stern tone and walked toward the door.
Tang Li Xue sighed in relief when she heard that.
The male disciple pushed the door, but it was locked. Unfortunately, it was too late for him to halt his step, so his head smashed heavily onto the locked door.
"Damn it! Are you stupid?! Why did you lock this door?! Open it now!" The male disciple shouted angrily at Tang Li Xue while rubbed the lump on his head to ease the pain.
Tang Li Xue only rolled her eyes in annoyance. She did not even bother to reply.
Tang Li Xue created a sharp dagger with her [Energy Manipulation] divine ability and easily cut the lock on the door with it.
"By the way, why do our clothes smell so bad like this? It smells like... cattle manure..." The female disciple grimaced and said with a tone full of disgust.
Tang Li Xue's cold sweat started to pour out crazily when she heard the female disciple's words.
"Ah, maybe your clothes touched some horse feces when you got caught by the guards before..." Tang Li Xue quickly said to cover her mistake.
The two disciples took turns to enter the room again and changed their smelly clothes with the new one from their space pouch before they went out from the inn together with Tang Li Xue.
Thankfully, the people from the inn did not get suspicious of them because there were too many people who come and go from the inn.
Before Tang Li Xue entered the inn, she already looked around Quanhai City to find the biggest pharmacy inside this city.
So Tang Li Xue's task right now was only to lead these two disciples to that biggest pharmacy so they can buy all the things they need there.
'Fiuh... There should be no more problems after this. But I must ask about what they need to buy there just in case if they do something stupid or make some troubles again.' Tang Li Xue pondered her next move carefully.
Her system judged that this mission was a 'Hard' difficulty quest after all. It means she would meet with many difficulties to complete this quest.
"I am sorry, but can I ask what you need to buy here? Please, do not get me wrong, but I need to know what you want to buy here so I can bring you two to the right store to buy it." Tang Li Xue asked politely to the female disciple since she seemed a bit more reasonable than the male disciple.
The female disciple looked at Tang Li Xue suspiciously and pondered about it for a few moments.
"Pfffttt... Bwahahaha... So you want to know what we need to buy?! Even if we show that to you, an uneducated fox like you would never understand it! You do not even have any basic knowledge about herbs, pharmacy, or alchemist!" The male disciple sneered at Tang Li Xue and started to insult her nonstop.
"Can you even tell the difference between the bad quality herb and the good quality herb?!"
"I dare to bet that you would not even know if the shopkeeper scams you and give you a normal grass while saying it is the precious herbs!"
Tang Li Xue ignored all of the male disciple's insults as if she did not hear anything.
Tang Li Xue also realized that her [Strengthen Willpower] skill rapidly increasing while she was with these two disciples lately.
Her [Strengthen Willpower] was only at level 5 before, but now, it already reached Mastered Level in only one day.
The female disciple took a piece of paper from her space pouch and gave it to Tang Li Xue, but her expression and eyes were filled with contempt.
Tang Li Xue smiled and nodded to the female disciple before she took the piece of paper from the female disciple and looked at it.
Bloodline Strengthening Pill
Vitality Rejuvenation Pill
Body Reforming Pill
Bone Hardening Pill
There were twelve kinds of pills in the list, but this paper only wrote about the pills, not the herbs they need to buy.
"Err... so we need to buy all of these pills? Not the herbs?" Tang Li Xue raised her head and asked in confusion.
"Stuuuupiiid~~!!! What we have to buy are the ingredients to make all of these pills! Bwahahaha... How about that? An uneducated idiot like you does not even understand what we have to buy here, right?! So you should just shut up and follow us! What you need to do is only guarding our safety, understand?!" The male disciple sneered at Tang Li Xue and mocked her again.
Tang Li Xue could only sigh in resignation this time since she did not know any ingredient to make any of these pills.
'I hope everything would be smooth and all right... It should be okay, right? We only need to buy the pills' ingredients and go back to Myriad Foxes Academy to finish our mission!' Tang Li Xue comforted herself in her heart.
It only took them a half-hour of walking to reach the biggest pharmacy in Quanhai City.
When Tang Li Xue and the two disciples entered the pharmacy's entrance and approached the front desk, the shopkeeper immediately come over to meet them with a smiling face.
"Good evening to young master and young missus, welcome to Caoyao Pharmacy. Our Caoyao Pharmacy is also known as the biggest pharmacy in Quanhai City. Young master and young missus, please tell me what kind of herbs you all want to buy, we will surely do our best to bring it to you at the market prices!" The shopkeeper politely greeted and explained.
The shopkeeper looked really old with a long white beard and mustache. His face was also filled with wrinkles, but he also seemed so experienced in this thing since he sounds really convincing like a salesman expert in Tang Li Xue's previous life.
"Really? This shabby and dirty old shop is the best pharmacy in Quanhai City? It's more like a scam store which selling fake medicine and herb! I warn you old human, if you dare to scam me, I will surely skin you alive and dip your body into a boiled corrosive poison!" The male disciple snorted in disdain and threatened the shopkeeper.
Tang Li Xue facepalmed when she heard the male disciple's mocking and threatening words.
Fortunately, the shopkeeper was patient enough. Only his expression turned darker, and he did not call the guards to kick them out.
The shopkeeper probably thought that they were coming from influential families, so he did not dare to do something rashly.
"We want to buy 100 sets of 100 years old or older silver ginseng, 50 sets of 100 years old or older black purple mushroom…" The female disciple recited a really long list of herbs and materials to concoct the pills.
The shopkeeper quickly recorded what the female disciple wanted to buy.
At first, his face was full of delight since he thought a rich customer finally come to buy all of their stocks, but his expression immediately turned strange.
The reason for his suspicion was because this customer bought too many rare goods at once without any necessary negotiation.
Usually, only the rich merchants would buy these many goods from them. They were usually also haggling for the cheaper prices before making the preparation in a few days to transport the goods into the other place and sold it there.
The female disciple finally stopped reciting after mentioned more than 150 kinds of herbs and materials.
The shopkeeper stopped writing after he wrote everything and put down his brush.
"Honorable miss, the total price of everything is 891,784 gold coins, 592 silver coins, 721 bronze coins. Please pay half in advance first, and we will pack all the goods for you. After you check everything and make sure all of our goods are authentic, you can pay the rest." The shopkeeper still patiently explained to them.
"Gold coins? Silver coin? I have more than one million credits on my card! You can deduce the payment from my card! Then you can buy several hundreds of tons of gold with those credits!" The female disciple said with a tone full of arrogance and took out a golden card from her space pouch.
Tang Li Xue's expression turned blank. She really wanted to abandon these two idiots right here and now so badly.
'Do these two idiots think they are still at the Myriad Foxes Academy or something?! Oh, My God! How could they want to buy those goods with their credits from Myriad Foxes Academy?! How the hell their brains work?!' Tang Li Xue cursed as she almost fainted in anger.
Just like what Tang Li Xue has predicted, the shopkeeper's face flushed red with anger, and he shouted out loud in an instant: "You little b*tch, how dare you tricking and toying with me like fool?! Guards! Break all of their limbs and throw them out right now!"
