“More than seven million dollars?! This is daylight robbery!” Luo Baode widened his eyes and looked viciously at her.

Lu Zijia shrugged helplessly, “Director, compared to other pills, my pills are considered cheap.”

“Five hundred thousand for one previously had been dirt cheap.
So, Director, shouldn’t you make up for the difference from the last time?”

Luo Baode’s face immediately darkened.
“Go away, you wretched girl! Is this how you do business?”

“It’s already sold, yet you still want her to pay the difference.
Do you know how to do business?”

“That’s why I only sell pills, but I don’t do business!” Lu Zijia replied self-righteously.

Luo Baode gritted his teeth secretly.
This damn girl really wanted to anger him to death so that she could inherit his position as the Director!

“I asked you for the pills for your own good.
Think about it.
If I’m not strong enough, how can I protect you? Wasn’t the previous incident the prime example of this?”

Luo Baode’s words made him appear righteous and selfless, as though he was really doing this for Lu Zijia’s sake.

Lu Zijia: “…” Why did she feel that the main reason the Director asked her to come back was to cheat her of her pills?

Was it her illusion?

Before Lu Zijia said anything, Luo Baode added, “Forget it, forget it.
It’s definitely impossible to get anything out of a stingy girl like you.”

“Here you go, three pieces of White Steel Stones.
I’ll exchange these White Steel Stones for three Vitality Pills, alright?”

As Luo Baode spoke, he took out a small brocade bag and threw it at Lu Zijia.

Lu Zijia: “…”


Her price was three pieces of White Steel Stones for one pill, but the Director directly reduced it to one stone for a pill… Who was the real miser here?

However, seeing that the Director was usually quite protective of her, she would make it cheaper just for him.

And so, the two of them made a deal happily.

Luo Baode, who was originally unhappy about the Maoshan Sect issue, immediately felt much better.

Knock, knock!

“Director, the higher-ups are here.”

Luo Baode’s assistant knocked on the door and informed him.

“Let’s go, girl.
With me around, those sinister and cunning b*stards won’t dare to do anything to you.”

Luo Baode put the pills away and walked out with his hands behind his back, looking like a respected master.

But what Luo Baode didn’t tell Lu Zijia was that so long as Lu Zijia exposed her identity as an alchemist, neither their superiors nor the Maoshan Sect would dare to do anything to her.
In fact, they wouldn’t even dare to show any disrespect to alchemists, because having these people on their side was always beneficial for them.

However, it was certainly up to Lu Zijia to decide if she wanted to expose her identity as an alchemist.
Even though he was her senior and her superior, he had no right to make the decision for her.

Of course, the most important thing was that if he made the decision on her behalf, this stingy girl would deliberately not give him a discount next time.

What was he to do when that happened?!

He never forgot the fact that this wretched girl was someone who would hold a grudge!

Thinking of the money he had been cheated of before, Luo Baode couldn’t help the aching in his heart.

When Luo Baode brought Lu Zijia to the meeting room of the Special Administration Office, there were already many people seated inside.

The moment both of them stepped into the meeting room, they felt a powerful force pressing upon them.

The person who released that force was a level-six Ancient Martial Artist, and Luo Baode, who was also a level-six Ancient Martial Artist, was not affected by this pressure.

And the person who released the pressure also seemed to know that it was useless against Luo Baode, so the overwhelming pressure was mostly aimed at the junior, Lu Zijia.

Clearly, he wanted to put them in their place.

However, Lu Zijia disappointed them.
