Miracle Pill Maker Bullies the Boss - chapter 183
Huo Jinyan smiled as he bent over to pick up the wooden ornament and placed it back on the corner table. Then he acted as though nothing happened and put his trembling hand behind his back. “Your sister’s medicine is really great!”
Huo Xiang was surprised to see his father behave in such a silly manner. His eyes landed on the porcelain bottle in Huo Yao’s hand.
Was the invigorator a kidney tonic?
Although he had hurt his spine, his kidneys were… In an instant, Huo Xiang felt a little embarrassed.
Huo Yao seemed to have read his mind. She pressed her forehead and said, “These meds are different from Dad’s.”
Huo Xiang calmed down a little when he heard it was not kidney tonic.
Huo Yao coughed and explained it to him with a solemn look. “These are Yuqing pilluqing pills. They are good for expelling toxins, physical recovery and will help improve your condition.”
She did not go into detail about their efficacy. After all, Huo Xiang would not understand the professional Chinese medicine terminology.
Huo Jinyan narrowed his eyes when he heard Huo Yao. He felt there was something curious about his daughter. She often uttered strange things.
Here she was talking about expelling toxins and physical recovery. Why did Huo Yao sound like one of those charlatans who often appeared in the news?
Huo Xiang did not think as deeply as his father. He was only a little surprised when his little sister said that it ‘will help improve his condition’.
He looked at Huo Yao in astonishment. When their eyes made contact, his little sister’s bright, beautiful eyes seemed omniscient.
Did Huo Yao know he was injured?
Huo Xiang was stunned. Just as he was about to ask her, Huo Yao blinked at him and said in an uncharacteristically grave manner, “Brother Xiang, trust me. You must take these meds. One every three days. Don’t forget.”
After some time, Huo Xiang gently replied. “Okay. I got it.”
Huo Yao could not tell if Huo Xiang had taken her seriously, but she did not go on with the topic. She turned to enter the dining room.
A sad smile swept across Huo Xiang’s lips as he held the porcelain bottle.
His little sister gave them to him out of the kindness of her heart. Sadly, his dreams of performing on stage were destined to get ripped from his hands no matter what medicine he took.
He casually put the porcelain bottle into his pocket.
Before long, Huo Yao finished breakfast and headed out to school. Huo Xiang wanted to drive her there, but their father said he would cause a disturbance due to his celebrity status and stopped him.
In the end, Huo Yao’s father sent her to school.
The old man had spent the night worrying that he would need to fight for his baby girl’s attention from now on, but he finally felt gratified. He even happily hummed on their way to the estate parking lot.
Huo Yao followed behind him perplexedly. She did not understand why he was so pleased today.
Her old man pointed at the car cover mysteriously when they got to the parking lot and said, “Here, you take off the car cover.”
Huo Yao took a glance at it before looking sideways to ask her father. “Did you get a new car?”
“Yeah. We have had that old car for a long time. The company just gave out our quarterly bonus, so I got a new one,” replied Huo Jinyan.
He did not mention a word about how he was sparked to do it because He Xiaoman threw a cheque at them.
“Hurry up and take off the cover and check out our new car,” urged Huo Jinyan, smiling broadly.
Huo Yao touched the tip of her nose. She extended her hand to pull off the car cover.
