Chapter 449 Using Pills As Paymen
“My energy is limited, I only refined five thousand of the best quality Supplement Spirit Pills. The remaining two thousand best quality pills are comprised of Easing Meridians Pill as well as other extraordinary efficacies.”
“There are even fewer second ranked best quality pills. In total, there’s only about eight or nine hundred of them. In the very back corner, there are about eighty third ranked best quality pills. These pills improve one’s dantian deposits and purifies spiritual power. This pill is effective toward martial artists who are at Meridians stage and above. Even Nascent Soul stage martial artists will receive benefits from this pill. Oh… As for the name of this pill, you guys can think of a name yourselves.”
Although the Overflowing Cauldron Pill Scripture had the name of this pill, Hexi was worried that people who thought a little too deeply about the pill would be able to connect it to Xumi taoists, and in turn, bring about trouble to Dan Dan.
It was better to just leave the naming of these pills to Xi San and the rest of them. In any case, she didn’t follow the recipe, from the Overflowing Cauldron Pill Scripture, word for word, she had made her own improvements. So even if she created a new name, there was nothing wrong with it.
Once Hexi said these words, Xi San, shopkeeper Zhou, and even Gu Liufeng, who was sitting on the bed, let out shocked expressions.
The room was deathly still, apart from Gu Youlan’s steady breaths, the room was so quiet, the sound of a needle dropping could’ve been heard.
Hexi looked at them in confusion and suspiciously asked, “What? These pills aren’t sufficient? If it isn’t enough, I’ll bring some more in a few days.”
“It’s enough! It’s enough! How could it not be enough!” Abruptly, shopkeeper Zhang came back to his senses and shouted with a trembling voice, “Xi gongzi, you… In your eyes, are these pills nothing more than ordinary candies, ah?”
“In ordinary medicinal halls, their inventory has around these many pills have many years. Moreover, the majority of the pills they have are all middle and below ranked pills. You… You were actually able to procure thousands of pills in such a short period of time. Don’t tell me that you only obtained all these pills in just these few days. Right?”
“You could say that.” Hexi waved her hand at him and unconcernedly said, “Since it’s like this, then this is the best situation. After some more time has passed, I’ll come back with more pills, you guys need not worry about the issue of supplies. As for how you wish to sell these pills, I won’t have a hand in this. You could use hunger marketing or cut down the prices, but it’s all up to you guys to decide.”
Shopkeeper Zhou was startled stupid by his new boss’ heroism, so much so that he couldn’t even formulate words.
On the other hand, Xi San had pride plainly written across his face, his entire body radiated with his pride. His family’s miss was just to awesome. Other family’s needed ten or so pill refining masters just to be able to support their medicinal hall, but his family’s miss could do this completely by herself.
And based on the actions of the bustling crowd outside, it could be assumed that the pills his family’s miss refined weren’t just any regular pill that other pill refining masters could make.
But then, he thought of the pharmacy’s chaotic scene nowadays, recalling how everyone fought one another just to buy one pill. With this in mind, Xi San couldn’t help but pursue his eyebrows again.
He neared Hexi and quietly whispered to her, “Miss, the pills you’re making are truly too good. Those martial artists that come here to buy them also have fiery tempers. If they were all to erupt and cause chaos, shopkeeper Zhou and I wouldn’t be able to calm them down.
“In addition to this, the few manservants we bought for the hall don’t know the slightest bit of knowledge regarding medicines, therefore, when the hall gets busy, they’re simply unable to keep up with everything and aren’t very helpful.”
This problem was actually quite troublesome.
Hexi bent her finger and lightly tapped the surface of the desk. But suddenly, it seemed as if an idea struck her as she turned to look toward shopkeeper Zhou and Xi San, slowly telling them, “I currently don’t possess enough crystal stones to be able to entice any doctors or guards to the hall, however, if I pay them using high quality, or even top quality, pills, do you guys think that there would be anyone willing to come be a waiter or guard?”
