Miracle Pill Maker Bullies the Boss - Chapter 63: A Stupid Quiz Without Any Prize
Chapter 63: A Stupid Quiz Without Any Prize
Huo Yao was clueless about her mother’s plans. She waited for Song Ning to sit down before she rolled her sleeves up and started massaging her mother’s temples moderately with her long slender fingers.
Her hands were very dexterous, and an expert would be able to notice that she was rubbing major head acupuncture points with great precision. Even the most experienced traditional Chinese medicine practitioners would not be confident about rubbing some of the acupuncture points which she was currently massaging.
Although Song Ning had sat down and obligingly agreed to her daughter’s request at first, she felt a lot better after Huo Yao pressed her head for a while. Huo Yao did a much better job than the physician whom she had been frequenting for dozens of years.
“Yaoyao, have you learned how to massage before? My headache has almost disappeared after you pressed my head,” said Song Ning with a look of bliss on her face.
Huo Yao continued massaging her mother’s head. Then she replied calmly. “I used to give massages to Grandma.”
So that was the reason Huo Yao was so good at this.
Song Ning was no longer surprised. Her lips curved into a proud smile as she said, “My daughter is the best. Even without official training, you’re much better than those massage parlors!”
Huo Yao lowered her eyes so that her long eyelashes covered her eyes. Then she asked her mother. “Have you been regularly using the pills I gave you?”
“I did. The incense pills were lightly scented and didn’t feel stifling, so they were especially good. I feel the quality of my sleep has improved vastly off late, and even your father’s insomnia got better,” replied Song Ning with a smile.
“I don’t think you’ve started taking the oral medication I gave you, right?” Huo Yao asked her calmly. Despite wording it as a question, she sounded certain.
If Song Ning had started taking medicine, her migraine would not have acted up today.
Song Ning pinched her skirt, sheepishly. She replied meekly after a while. “The medicine... smells too strong and tastes bitter. I can’t take it...” After taking the medication once, Song Ning could not bring herself to consume it a second time.
Huo Yao sighed gently. Then she said, “It’s for your own good, so you must take the pills.”
Song Ning could not help feeling guilty in her heart instantly when she heard her daughter sigh softly, so she hurriedly said, “I promise to take it regularly regardless of how bitter it tastes.”
Huo Yao stopped massaging Song Ning and asked her. “Okay. How do you feel now?”
Song Ning opened her eyes and instinctively moved her neck a little. Then she exclaimed in surprise. “It doesn’t hurt at all anymore. I feel invigorated!”
Huo Yao raised her brows gently. Of course, it was effective since Huo Yao was the one who had given the message.
Song Ning turned around and gazed at Huo Yao. Then she asked her curiously. “Oh yes! Your elder brother said you signed up for some quiz, didn’t he?”
Huo Yao nodded and replied expressionlessly. “A stupid quiz... without any reward.”
She gave Song Ning the impression that it was some normal extracurricular quiz, so she said, “Oh, I see. Then you can just take the quiz and treat it as practice.”
There was a slight look of annoyance in her eyes. Why did Huo Yanxi have to throw such a temper this morning if it was just a little quiz?
Song Ning raised her head and asked her a few seconds later. “Can I find out more about your quiz online?”
Despite her daughter’s claims that it was some dumb quiz, Song Ning had to pay close attention to it since she was her mother.
Although Huo Yao did not understand why Song Ning asked, she replied with a shrug. “I guess so. Just search for the ‘National Quiz Contest’.”
Song Ning nodded her head with her phone already in hand.
Huo Yao glanced at her and said, “Then I’m heading back to my room.”
Song Ning responded without even looking up. “Okay. Go on then.”
She had already opened the internet browser on her phone and typed, ‘National Quiz Contest’.
