tty kept his head down, dejected.
In a crying tone, “Master, Lady Gu seems to be still angry at us…will she take her anger out on the Baicao Pharmacy and won’t collaborate with us anymore?”


Zhao Minglin glanced at the worthless Fifth Uncle and said, “Didn’t Lady Gu say that it was just a fight between her and Sister Yun? She won’t involve others.
Let’s head back to the tavern and return to Yan City tomorrow.”


“Master, didn’t the family head want us to stay in Yan City and take care of Lady Gu? We finally saw her today.
Shouldn’t we find more opportunities to interact with her? Let her know that the Baicao Pharmacy is much stronger than Jimin Pharmacy by a load.
Let her know the correct decision would be to collaborate with us.” The short fatty wanted to make up for his mistake so he urgently suggested.


“Fifth Uncle, you still don’t understand.
When you’ve reached the level of a grand apothecary, you’re able to decide the prosperity of a pharmacy.
Don’t you know how Yangsheng Pharmacy made its return? It’s because Baili Apothecary had good karma with the owner.
After he became famous, he provided a year’s worth of pills for the pharmacy exclusively.
That was how Yangsheng Pharmacy had become an opponent to our pharmacy.
It’s because Baili Apothecary saved it.”


“But…” The short fatty was confused “But he’s the Baili Apothecary! How many of him are in this world?”


“Then how many people are able to reach the standards of a grand apothecary when they’re only ten years old? If she’s really that person’s disciple, I’m sure that she’ll accomplish more than the Baili Apothecary when she grows up!”


Zhao Minglin was clearly dejected as he didn’t receive a clear response from Gu Ye.
He had dealt with all sorts of opponents but this was the first time he felt helpless.
He only hoped that two years from now, he could get an opportunity to work with her.


But there were all sorts of uncertainties within the two years.
With the young lady’s talent and the sage apothecary’s careful guidance, she’d definitely make many accomplishments two years from now.
By then, he would have many opponents.
But he believed that Baicao Pharmacy wouldn’t lag behind.


“If that’s the case, the…should we look into Lady Gu’s background? Didn’t you say that we’ll only win our battles if we know our enemies?” The short fatty said.


Zhao Minglin furrowed his brows and said resolutely, “No! From the short interaction, I’ve noticed that the young lady is frank with her words.
We mustn't play around with her.”


The short fatty nodded.
That young lady wasn’t easy to talk to.
Even more, she had an attitude.
If she was really the sage apothecary’s disciple, he’d be kicked out of his family if he offended her.


“But from her words, she implied that she lived in this Cangmang Mountain.
Deep inside in fact.” There was an astute glint in Zhao Minglin’s eyes.


The man sighed.
“What’s the point of just knowing what mountain she lived in? Cangmang Mountain is huge.
There are at least hundreds of villages.
We still don’t know her location.
What do we tell the family head?”


Zhao Minglin thought about it and smiled softly.
“There is a nameless village at the foot of Cangmang Mountain.
It’s the only town there.
The villagers would come over to buy items from time to time.
I heard she provided, at most, only three month’s worth of medicine for Landlord Ding.
That means she needs to come every now and then.
As long as we keep an eye on the town, we’ll find her.”


The short fatty revealed an understanding expression and gave Master Zhao a thumbs up.
“Smart! Master, as expected of you to think ahead and considerately.
Why don’t I go keep an eye on the town?”


“No, I’ve decided to make an exception and open a Baicao Pharmacy in this nameless town.
Didn't the Tenth Brother plan on becoming a monk and going out to experience the world? I’ll have him manage the pharmacy here.” Zhao Minglin didn’t miss the surprised glint in the young lady’s eyes when his Tenth Brother entered.


Though the Tenth Brother was from the third branch, he was the most handsome of the brothers.
He was around the same age as the young lady as well.
Most importantly, he had a gentle personality and treated people sincerely.
He was the type that girls like.
No matter how capable the female apothecary was, she needed to marry someone in the end, no?


He just needed to meet someone face-to-face to see through their thoughts and grasp their preferences.
He could make the best decisions.
No wonder he was known within the business world at a young age! Needless to say, it made sense why Gu Ye avoided him.
No one wanted to be transparent in front of someone else.
It would make them feel unsafe.


Zhao Mingling stared in the direction Gu Ye disappeared and stroked his chin.
His deep and ink-black eyes seemed to be bottomless.


He turned to look at the other man.
“Fifth Uncle, let’s go and visit Landlord Ding.”


“Landlord Ding? He’s just a wealthy person within this small town.
Master, why do you need to personally visit him? Plus, it’s not like Baicao Pharmacy has any relations with him.” The man was confused.
