Translator: Dragon Boat Translation Editor: Dragon Boat Translation
This pharmacy had many kinds of medical ingredients, and they weren’t cheap.
Supposedly, this shop had many connections. As long as one could afford to pay, a hundred-year-old ginseng would be available.
Xia Xibei didn’t need a century-old ginseng, she only needed some common medicinal supplies.
There were not too many people in the pharmacy, and the clerk was relatively leisurely.
Xia Xibei stepped forward and passed a piece of paper.
“I want these medicinal ingredients. Please pack them separately.”
These medicinal supplies needed to be boiled, and the boiling times were different, so they had to be packed separately.
The shop clerk nodded and began packing the medicinal supplies.
Xia Xibe was bored and began to look around.
Soon, her gaze met with that of a tall man.
When the person saw her, he was obviously taken aback, and then he stared at her for a while.
There was no malice in his eyes, so Xia Xibei didn’t feel offended, but she was very puzzled as she didn’t know him.
After a while, the man seemed to recognize her, but instead of coming forward, he quickly walked inside.
‘What’s going on?’
Xia Xibei was confused, but she didn’t go after the man to ask.
The clerk continued to grab the medicinal supplies, and she focused again on the medicine.
She grabbed a bunch of the medicinal supplies and smelled them, then she nodded.
The supplies here were indeed authentic; they had aged enough.
The effect would be better this way.
After a while, Xia Xibei suddenly felt a numbing sensation on her back. She couldn’t help turning around.
When she recognized the person, she couldn’t help widening her eyes.
What was he doing here?!
The man from earlier was standing next to Qiao Yanjue.
So the man was Qiao Yanjue’s subordinate.
Apparently, they had looked her up!
Thinking of this, she looked at Qiao Yanjue with an expression of impatience and disgust.
Qiao Yanjue just watched this girl’s expression change again and again.
From surprise, to impatience, to disgust, and then finally calm.
If it weren’t for her reaction just now, Qiao Yanjue would have thought she didn’t recognize him!
He couldn’t help but think of what he had found out before.
Xia Xibei was practically an orphan, her life was difficult, and she had never left this place.
However, she seemed to know him.
Qiao Yanjue had been injured and was a little sluggish, but he could still feel the change in Xia Xibei’s attitude.
This was very strange.
Qiao Yanjue admitted that it was the first time to visit this place, and he had always been low-key, so not many people knew his identity.
So, how did this Xia Xibei girl know who he was?
Anyway, this girl had really changed a lot!
Her looks didn’t change; she was still pretty, but she made one feel very different.
Although dressed in just a simple T-shirt and jeans, she was very confident. He could not see her timidity as found in the private investigation.
‘Interesting, very interesting!’
Unlike Qiao Yanjue’s interest, Xia Xibei couldn’t help rolling her eyes in her mind.
Why did Qiao Yanjue show up here?
It had just been a few days. Was his injury healed? So he could go out and play now?
Regardless of what he thought, Xia Xibei decided to act as if she did not know him.
Qiao Yanjue saw Xia Xibei turning around and giving him her back.
He was surprised. This little girl had quite a personality!
Thinking of what she said before, “I won’t see you again,” Qiao Yanjue’s mouth turned up in a smile, then he strode forward.
As soon as he got next to her, she glanced at him and moved aside.
Qiao Yanjue was stunned, so he immediately moved over too.
Xia Xibei moved again.
He followed again.
“Uncle, what are you doing? Harassing me?” Xia Xibei was unwilling.
