Chapter 1241: What Kind of Quack Doctor Doesn’t Have Secret Remedies?
Lady Song’s personal maid, Hong Mei, came to ask Ning Shu if she had any secret folk remedies for conceiving. Ning Shu was pretty speechless. Why were people always asking her about this?
It was like if you knew some medicine, you’d definitely have secret remedies.
The fact that Lady Song had come to look for her showed that she was very impatient now and really wanted to have a baby. Furthermore, she wanted it to be a boy.
“I don’t have any folk remedies for conceiving,” said Ning Shu. Hong Mei had her chin tilted up so arrogantly, Ning Shu had a full view of her nostrils.
Hong Mei frowned. “What do you mean by you don’t have any? Right after you went to Lady Niohuru’s courtyard, she became pregnant and it was even with a boy!”
“The lady said that as long as you help her, she’ll definitely reward you handsomely.” Hong Mei took out a sachet. “This is the lady’s reward for you.”
Ning Shu opened the sachet and saw that it contained a few pieces of silver. She handed the sachet back to Hong Mei and said, “I really don’t have any folk remedies for conceiving.”
Hong Mei’s facial color immediately turned ugly. “Miao Ling, what do you mean by this? No matter who you serve now, you had once served the lady. Now that you’ve gotten a leg in with other people, you’re completely forgetting about the lady!? You have no sense of loyalty!”
Ning Shu turned and looked at Hong Mei. “I’m just a servant, a servant of the prince’s residence, so my master is the prince. I’ll be loyal to whomever I serve.”
With this kind of EQ, Lady Song was simply cannon fodder in this inner courtyard. She offended people way too easily.
Ning Shu turned and left, ignoring Hong Mei.
Hong Mei stomped her feet in frustration, then headed back to report to Lady Song.
“Ding, you have carried out the examination task for three years and six months, so the task is complete. Leaving the task world now.” 2333’s voice appeared in Ning Shu’s head.
Ning Shu never thought that she’d find the sound of 2333’s voice so beautiful.
Ning Shu felt a moment of dizziness, then when she opened her eyes again, she found that she had returned to the system space.
She looked at the furniture in the space one by one: the sofa, the bookshelf, the tea table…
She couldn’t help but cheer. She jumped on the sofa and started hopping around. She was finally back! Her examination task was over! It was completed!
After a good while, she finally calmed down and asked 2333, “You said that there would be rewards if the examination task was completed. What are the rewards?”
They had been valuable enough to make the advanced task-takers enter the task at the risk of being exterminated.
“Of course there are rewards. What are you being so impatient for?” said 2333 scornfully. “What are you being so excited for? Only those who do not waver in the face of praise and insult alike will be able to become great. All you did was complete an examination task, what are you being so happy for? You’re seriously hopeless.”
