Chapter 1419 Bear a son as a compensation
“How can that work? With so many men here, yet letting a woman as the team leader, won’t people find it ridiculous? ” Chen Dao waved his hand. “You two, move aside. The team leader position is not for you.”
That woman gritted her teeth, but she had nothing more to say.
Immediately afterwards, Chen Dao spoke out, “There’s no need to argue. I alone am qualified to be the team leader.”
“For what reason?”
Right, why does it have to be you?”
“Nor do I.”
Listening to them talking one by one, Chen Dao arranged his moustache and glanced at them with narrowed eyes. “You refuse? Well, if you don’t like it, you can fight with me. If you win, you’ll be the team leader. I’ll listen to you. ”
However, as soon as the words came out, those people hesitated.
“All right, all right, it’s decided. Let’s go! We’ve argued about this point for a long time.” Luo Heng didn’t pay attention to them anymore and stepped forward.
The others, seeing this, said nothing and started leaving.
The intention to set up a team of ten members was to take care of each other. However, they were gathered from several different peaks. It would be strange if they could work as one when an accident strikes.
Feng Jiu followed them quietly, occasionally squatting down to pick some spirit herbs when she saw them. Although those were just some ordinary spirit herbs, as long as they were mature enough to be used as a medicine, she would pick them and put them into her cosmos sack.
The spirit herbs in this place belonged to anybody who gathered them. Even though they had to sign up to enter, each disciple who came in had to pay quite a sum of money and contribution. As for what kind of spirit herbs could be picked and whether it was worth the trip, it depended on one’s own ability.
Luo Heng took a sip of water and glanced over his shoulder at the figure in blue squatting and digging behind him. He shouted, “Feng Jiu, these spirit herbs are useless. The sect has plenty of those herbs. Don’t waste your energy.”
“I’m idle, anyway. I’ll pick some while walking. They’re all mature herbs. It will be wasted if I don’t pick it.” Feng Jiu said, putting the spirit herbs into her cosmos sack.
Hearing this, Chen Dao smiled, slowed down his pace and walked side by side with Feng Jiu. “Kid, you are not even an alchemist apprentice. Even if you collected all these, you won’t be able to refine pills! But it doesn’t matter.” Here, he lowered his voice a bit. “When you catch a few more Spirit Bamboo Rats to roast for me to eat, I will help you refine the pill.”
“Wait until I collect all the spirit herbs!” Feng Jiu smiled. “I still have to thank you for your kindness.”
“Thank me.” He nodded, took out two fruits and handed one piece to Feng Jiu. “Eat it! Fill your stomach.”
The two women in the front saw it and glanced at Feng Jiu with a frown. Then, they went to Chen Dao’s side. “Brother Chen, we are women! How come you only care about this little errand boy, but ignore us? ”
Chen Dao took a bite of the fruit, making a crisp crunching sound. He glanced at the two women. “How can this be the same? At the least, you two are alchemists as well as Golden Core cultivators. Besides, you are not from our Third Sun Peak, so I will not interfere with you no matter how nosey I am! ”
He paused and cast a glance at the two women. “What’s more, this little errand boy is the one I brought in. If I don’t care about him, who will bear me a son as compensation if something happens?”
