767 Black Market Purchase Medicine

    "Oh, Feng Jiu, we haven't seen you recently." A student at the mission point saw Feng Jiu and greeted her.

    "I've been rather busy lately, so I haven't been out." Feng Jiu replied with a smile. When she arrived at the mission point, she took a look at the task board, but there were none that came with a lot of contribution points.

    "Feng Jiu, have you come to earn contribution points? The tasks recently aren't that good. And the contribution points are rubbish too." That student's eyes shined when he saw the feather on Feng Jiu's waistband.

    "Yes, it's not good and the contributions points aren't good either." She nodded and as there was nothing suitable, she left.

    Such little contribution points, it was better if she went outside of the academy to buy what she needed instead. After all, it was just spirit herbs, not something that required contribution points to obtain.

    After she made up her mind, instead of returning to the cave dwelling, she took out the token from space and left the academy to go into the city.

    As she left the academy, someone had gone to inform the Headmaster and Deputy Headmaster of her departure. Upon hearing the news, they didn't speak and only told the informer to retreat.

    "Last time she went out she caught the attention of those people. This time surely nothing will happen?" The Deputy Headmaster asked with worry.

    "It should be fine. All those people are now dead, so I assume the news about her had not been reported back. It has been calm for a couple of months now, things should be fine." The Headmaster replied quietly, he paused and continued: "But why has she gone out? Hasn't she been practising refining pills recently?"

    "Her supply of spirit medicine herbs must have been used up. A teacher told me that he had seen her at the mission point. However, she didn't take up and tasks and left."

    The Headmaster didn't say anything. It was a rule that the students of the academy had to earn their own contributions points. Even if he was the Headmaster, it was no exception. Besides, if he broke the rule just for her, then everyone would have something to say about it.

    About two hours later, Feng Jiu arrived in the city. She had a meal first before she went to the Black Market. She had planned to ask the people in the Black Market how much spirit herbs they would be able to source for her before she decided what she would do.

    She had been to the Black Market with Xiao Yihan, hence, she didn't need to ask for directions and she knew her way there. She got to the main entrance and went inside to look for the porter.

    "I am looking for the Chief, please can you pass the message along?"

    The porter was busy and hadn't bothered to look up. He replied: "Not just anyone can meet out Chief. Just tell me what you want."

    When she heard this, Feng Jiu knocked her fingers on the table and said: "I'm afraid you have no authority."

    "What do you mean I have no authority?"

    The porter looked up to shout when he saw the young boy's handsome face, and his legs trembled. He smiled and said: "Oh it's Young Master Feng. Young Master Feng is looking for Chief Gong? Please come inside with me. He is right inside."

    He led the way inside half bent at his waist as he walked ahead. Chief Gong and Elder Gong have instructed that they were not to offend this young master and treat like a royal guest. When he thought back to the tone in his voice earlier, his heart trembled and he wiped away the cold sweat with his sleeve.

    "Who is that being brought inside?" Elder Li glanced at Feng Jiu as he asked the porter.

    "Elder Li." The porter bowed with respect before he replied: " This is Young Master Feng, here to see the Chief."

    When he heard this, Elder Li appeared startled, and seemed to have thought of something. His attitude changed one hundred and sixty degrees.
