Sima You Yue took Little Seven back to the parting garden. All along the way, people were talking about today’s battle. When they saw her, they were secretly pointing at her. Many people were idolizing her.
However, this bustle was blocked outside the array of parting garden. As soon as they entered parting garden, they saw the quiet courtyard.
“You’re back?” Xu Jin was fiddling with herbs. When he heard their footsteps, he asked without raising their head.
“Master.” Sima You Yue paid her respects to Xu Jin.
“Have you dealt with it?” Xu Jin placed down the herbs and asked.
“Mm, all dealt with.” Sima You Yue walked over to Xu Jin. “Master, some of the herbs have yet to mature?”
“You can see?” Xu Jin glance at her. “But you know, some herbs are best used when they’re immature.”
Xu Jin picked the under ripe peach-like fruit. “Look at this bodhi peach. When it’s mature, it can be used to refine the shatter pill. It’s widely used. Even if you take it directly, you can protect your heart and improve your spiritual cultivation. But do you know that this thing is picked when it’s not mature. It’s the opposite of medicine. It can disturb people’s mind?”
“There’s such an effect?” Sima You Yue looked at the Bodhi peach and smelled it again. It’s really different from the pleasant fragrance after ripening. It smelt a bit bitter.
“It’s not just that.” Xu Jin said with a smile, “Some of these herbs have better effects than those after they are mature, some have the opposite effects and some are similar, so we have to pay attention to understand them. Unknown qualities of everything in this world always appeared when we think we know them well.”
Sima You Yue nodded and agreed with Xu Jin. The world’s vast, how can someone claim they know everything.
“Hungry.” Little Seven pulled Sima You Yue’s hand.
“Little Seven can play with master in the courtyard. I’ll go make you food?”
Although Little Seven didn’t want to be with Xu Jin, Sima You Yue treated herself as a child. In order not to let her doubt, she nodded obediently.
After a few steps, Sima You Yue realized that there was no kitchen here. She made a detour and went to the backyard.
The space there was huge.
After Sima You Yue left, Xu Jin continued to fiddled with the herbs. Little Seven went over and stuffed a herb in her mouth. She commented, “Your things are so rudimentary.”
“Eat one, you have compensate me one.” Xu Jin stretched out his hand. “You have a lot of turnips. Just give me two.”
“Dream on, they’re my food.” Little Seven wouldn’t give her things to Xu Jin. “You human are always like that. Only an idiot like You Yue wouldn’t want my turnips.”
“Impossible, she’s an idiot? Your turnips are good stuff. She doesn’t want any?” Xu Jin felt sorry for Sima You Yue. She should want more of her turnips. Take as many as she can!
“Humph, look at yourself, my Yue Yue is a good person and not greedy for these things.” Little Seven looked at Xu Jin contemptuously.
Xu Jin easily ignored her disdain. “My idiotic disciple didn’t want your turnips. Could it be you said you’ll give her turnips and she really thought they were turnips?”
“How can it be?” Little Seven’s face questioned his silliness. “I placed the thing in her hand two or three times. She didn’t take them and returned them to me.”
Xu Jin touched his chin and thought, “It seems that my disiciple is really stupid. I will teach her well later. It’s true that I don’t know how old man devil taught her before. She’s an idiotic to not accept good things.”
“You don’t have the skill!” Little Seven harrumphed.
“Are you going to stay with her forever? When old man returns, will you still dare to stay her?” Xu Jin stared provokingly at Little Seven.
“How wouldn’t I dare?” even though Little Seven said this, she wasn’t as confident.
“You don’t stay put in the place they prepared for you. If one day, you get captured to be eaten, it’s too late to even cry!” Xu Jin reminded.
“This is the sect. Who dares to capture me.” Little Seven didn’t listen to him. She took a bite off a herb and spit it on the ground. “How can it be so bitter?”
“Who told you to keep eating?” Xu Jin pitied his herb. This fellow only ruined things!
“If not for eating, what use are these for?” Little Seven threw the herbs into Xu Jin’s arms.
“You’re eating those herbs only to improve your strength. You don’t really want to eat them.” Xu Jin said, “Since that’s the case, have you ever thought of refining them into pills to take? The refined medicine is not so bad.”
“That’s possible?” Little Seven’s eyes shined. “These things are hard to eat. But I have to eat them. Everytime I eat them, I feel a lot of pain. Although Yue Yue makes tasty food, it doesn’t satisfy my needs. If you can refine them into pills, I can just swallow them.”
“That’s what stupid people are like. Why didn’t you become smarter when you were such a little doll?” Xu Jin joked.
“Bare——” Little Seven bared her teeth and threatened. “Do you believe I’ll eat you?”
“You can try?” Xu Jin wasn’t scared.
“Hmph, wait till old man comes back, see if you can still act like this!”
“I won’t be affected. At the most, when he returns, he’ll scold me couple times. Unlike me, you left your body and wandered around like this. I think you’ll be heavily punished.
“We’ll wait and see! I’ll find Yue Yue to refine some pills for me to eat!” Little Seven ran off.
Sima You Yue was holding a spoon, while Han Miao Shuang eyed brightly.
When You Yue starting cooking, she already smell the fragrance. Her feet didn’t listened to her and ran over here.
“Little Seven? What do you talk with master? Wait a little more. It’ll be done soon.” Sima You Yue beckoned Little Seven.
Han Miao Shuang laughingly joked, “Little Junior Brother, you treat Little Seven better than us.”
Sima You Yue wasn’t angry. She smiled, “You’re all adults; Little Seven is a child. Are you getting jealous over a child? If you like it, I’ll give you a large jar. You can drink slowly.”
Little Seven strolled over and sat beside Han Miao Shuang, “I’ll give you a jar of vinegar!”
“You two, you’re in cahoots!” Looking at Little Seven Han Miao Shuang always thought that she was not so simple as a child, but Sima You Yue seemed to believe in her very much.
Little Seven seemed to like Han Miao Shuang being attached to Sima You Yue. She wasn’t angry and grinned.
