326 Searching for Treasures in the Medicine Storage Room 1

 Shen Yanxiao did a rough calculation. There were probably about tens of thousands of medicinal ingredients in the storage room.

It was an impossible task to look through all of the medicinal ingredients, even if she had more than ten days or half a month. However, she only had a single afternoon at that time.

She had to pick a set of medicinal ingredients and then leave the storage room before the sun had set. Otherwise, they would consider it an automatic abandonment of that privilege.

"Ouyang Huanyu is a crafty old fox, indeed. There are so many medicinal ingredients here, but we only get one afternoon to pick our choice. It is not easy to find the good stuff among all the items here." Shen Yanxiao's eyes swept across the room. Even though it was a good prize for a competition, it was still not an easy task to find the best ingredient in such a short time.

The door behind Shen Yanxiao slowly closed as she stepped further into the room, and then she was left alone there.

When she confirmed that there were no outsiders around her, Shen Yanxiao immediately called for the Vermillion Bird.

The Vermillion Bird, who was almost bored to its death before it was called forth, immediately pouted when it appeared.

"Are you trying to stifle me to death?" Ever since Shen Yanxiao had started school, he had only been let out once during the class allocation test, and after that, he had been shut inside Shen Yanxiao's body for the rest of the time. The Vermillion Bird had been very regretful for choosing a master who had kept him in captivity all day long. It was such a bore.

If he were to think about his past, which of his masters did not flaunt his existence to the outside world so that the masses could worship him?

However, Shen Yanxiao had not only prevented him from revealing himself, but she had also bullied him!

Shen Yanxiao chuckled and poked the Vermilion Bird's small head. "My family's mythical beast is not that weak. Anyway, I called for you because I need your help with something."

The Vermilion Bird crossed his arms and gave Shen Yanxiao an unhappy look. Even then, he was rather proud of what she had said.

It was as he had expected. The little girl needed his help with something.

There were times where insignificant humans could not deal with certain situations, and during those times, they would need the help of their all-rounder mythical beast.

However, even though the Vermillion Bird was proud that Shen Yanxiao needed his help, his expression changed the very next second.

"Well, you're a mythical beast, and there's nothing that you cannot accomplish. I would like your help to search the area to see if there are any unique medicinal ingredients," Shen Yanxiao said with a meek smile.

The Vermilion Bird's eyes nearly popped out when he heard that.

"You... you... you called for me to help you find medicinal ingredients?!" The Vermilion Bird glared at Shen Yanxiao in disbelief.

She had not needed his help with a fight or a battle. The kid wanted a grand mythical beast to help her search for some worthless medicinal ingredients!

Did she even know who she was talking to?!

Shen Yanxiao appeared not to have noticed the Vermillion Bird's fury as she continued to smile like a lovely flower.

The Vermilion Bird turned his head to look at Shen Yanxiao's infuriating face and snorted. "No way."

He was a mythical beast and not her servant!

Even a mythical beast had their dignity, alright!

He would never do a servant's tasks.

Shen Yanxiao stared at the Vermilion Bird's arrogant face and quirked her eyebrows. "Don't tell me that the great and mighty Vermilion Bird does not know how to recognize unique medicinal ingredients?"

Then she sighed and continued to speak in a disdainful tone, "It looks like I have overestimated your abilities. I thought that mythical beasts are omnipotent. I did not expect that you wouldn't know how to differentiate a few medicinal ingredients."

The Vermilion Bird's mouth twitched as he glared at Shen Yanxiao in a fury.
