Chapter 435: Failed
“Growing herbs? You want to plant herbs?” Zhao Lan was surprised. This kind of plant was not a simple thing. She once heard people say that there was a medicine field in Qianhu Lake. The owner and his three sons failed to grow herbs in two years. Not only they didn’t earn money, but they also took a lot for expenses. In their third year, they found out a way. A year after that, they made a lot of money each year. And now they were known as a big local snake.
Bai Zhi smiled and said: “I read in a book how to plant it. I see it’s not that difficult, so I asked Boss Chen to help me get some seeds. Let’s plant the 3 acres with a few kinds, let’s test it first. If we succeed, let’s try a view more variety next year.”
Hu Changlin said to Zhao Lan: “Zhi’er has never done something she can’t be sure. Let her do whatever she wanted to do.”
Zhao Lan smiled and said: “Okay, I’ll follow your advice.”
Zhou Xiaofeng also opened his mouth and said: “I never have done any work in the field, but if I learn it, I can also do anything to help.”
Bai Zhi waved her hand: “We can’t do that. I have already talked to Lu Pingan today. Tomorrow, he will take us to see his teacher. You will go to school to continue your studies.”
Zhou Awu thought the same way inside his heart. He was looking for a chance to speak to Bai Zhi about this matter. He didn’t expect that she also thought the same and went on ahead.
Zhou Awu busily said: “Yes, yes, Zhi’er is right. You should go to school, you don’t need to care about things in the field.”
Zhou Xiaofeng entered the school at the age of 5 and studied for 5 years. If it wasn’t for that event that happened 3 years ago, he should have taken the exam by now.
So of course, it’s good to continue his studies. He can have the opportunity to obtain fame and the opportunity to step into the court. In this way, he can have the opportunity to clear the grievances of his father.
“Well, that’s settled. Let’s go to Sihe Academy tomorrow. If you are satisfied, you’ll be studying there. I heard that Xu Xiansheng of Sihe Academy is a man of great talent. If you study hard, you’ll have a great future.” Bai Zhi said.
Zhou Xiaofeng didn’t refuse anymore: “Okay, I’ll listen to you.”
After dinner, things were settled. Zhao Sue and Zhao Lan cleaned up the dishes on the table. They chatted for a while and then separated.
The next morning, Zhou Awu prepared the carriage early and took some snacks prepared by Bai Zhi to Doctor Lu’s house. After he made sure the Lu Family had breakfast, he called Bai Zhi and Zhou Xiaofeng.
It was Lu Pingan’s first time to ride such a good carriage. It was refreshing, but because he was a little older, although he was excited, he didn’t show it on his face. However, the smile on his face and brimming eyes failed to hide his real feelings.
Bai Zhi smiled and asked, “I heard that you went to take the test. How was the test?”
Lu Pingan scratched his head awkwardly: “Maybe I was too nervous. I suddenly had stomache before the exam. I didn’t do well.”
Zhou Xiaofeng replied: “If it’s your first time, you’ll definitely get nervous. Let’s take the exam next year. I know a secret way. I will pass it on to you at that time, you will not be nervous anymore.”
Lu Pingan was very happy: “What’s this secret? Tell me now.”
Zhou Xiaofeng shook his head: “That won’t work. This tip is only useful if you do it before the exam. Now it won’t work.”
Lu Pingan looked at Zhou Xiaofeng. He was young and thin. He looked like 12 or 13 years old boy: “You will take the exam next year? After only studying for one year?” He started school at the age of 9, he took the exam just now after 6 years of studying.
