The Fourth Elder frowned. This girl's rapid improvement in refining pills was a clear demonstration that she was indeed brilliant, so whether she truly was Grandmaster Rong Yun's disciple was certainly open to debate.
However, the Fourth Elder refused to believe that she was the City Lord's adopted daughter.
Because he knew that what annoyed the City Lord the most was the mundane world. He couldn’t stand meeting with people and was extremely distant overall. If the City Lord truly welcomed an adopted daughter, the Fourth Elder swore that he would chomp down on the table in front of him right there and then.
He questioned Su Luo, "What proof do you have?"
"What proof do you want?" Su Luo's tone was as unperturbed and unexcited as it was at the beginning.
The Fourth Elder glanced in Su Luo's direction inadvertently in slight admiration.
In front of the four of them, she did not show timidness nor arrogance, she was also neither too overbearing nor too servile. Rather, she acted calm and collected, a rare occurrence for someone so young.
"Prove that you are a disciple of Grandmaster Rong Yun," The Fourth Elder said.
Su Luo smiled as her gaze fell on the Fifth Elder, "The Fifth Elder can prove it for me."
The Fifth Elder angrily smacked the table, "Nonsense! How can I prove it for you? How about I prove that you're a swindling fiend!"
Su Luo slowly approached the Fifth Elder, holding eye contact and a cheeky grin, "Fifth Elder, you have seen it with your own eyes that my pill-refining skill is better than yours."
"Why, you!" The Fifth Elder’s boiling rage turned his face ashen!
"The taste of that medicinal cauldron… I guess it wasn’t too bad?" Su Luo asked.
"Bang!" The Fifth Elder slammed his fist on the long table!
A hole had broken through the piece of furniture from the impact.
The Fourth Elder took a hint and silently looked away.
Previously, he had heard that the Fifth Elder had lost a bet to that girl Su Luo. He would not have guessed that it was true. The Fifth Elder's attitude on the matter was sufficient proof of Su Luo's pill-refining skill.
She was already a quasi-Grandmaster class Apothecary at such a young age. Only Grandmaster Rong Yun could teach and raise someone to that level.
Su Luo is Grandmaster Rong Yun's disciple, of this there was no doubt. However—
"Since you are Grandmaster Rong Yun's disciple, you definitely can't also be the City Lord's adopted daughter!" The Seventh Elder sat there in a composed manner, yet his eyes were cold and hostile. "Everyone knows that the City Lord and Grandmaster Rong Yun get along like water and fire. How could he take Grandmaster Rong Yun's disciple in as his adopted daughter?"
One after another, the Elders nodded their heads in agreement.
Su Luo smiled yet again, took out the diamond token, and dangled it before the company, "How would you explain this diamond token then?"
The Fourth Elder took it and carefully inspected it. His expression changed drastically.
During the second of attention the Seventh Elder gave the diamond token, his gaze flickered in its direction, and he snorted. "If I remember correctly, the City Lord gave out several diamond tokens back then, right?"
"Indeed," The Fourth Elder nodded. "During the Magical Beast invasion long ago, several outstanding people contributed greatly to the cause. The City Lord gave out three diamond tokens to them as a reward. Many years have passed since then, and those three diamond tokens are now unaccounted for. Miss Su, where exactly did you get this diamond token?"
The Fourth Elder frowned while saying the last sentence.
Su Luo seemed amused when she replied, "You guys don't believe me?"
"I only blame you for lying so recklessly and with so many flaws. It is easy to tell that you cannot be trusted," The Seventh Elder scoffed. "If you really were adopted by the City Lord, why didn't he tell us Elders about it?"
Su Luo remembered that her master had advised her not to reveal her identity, saying it was better that way. Presently, since these people did not believe her, Su Luo could not be bothered to continue with this nonsense.
