Baili Hongzhuang looked at the tall and imposing building in front of her. The solemn and magnificent image of a pill furance was placed on top of glazed tiles that reflected bright rays of light. It exuded boundless nobility and pride. It was akin to the status pill masters in Shengxuan Continent had.
The Pill Masters Guild wasn’t as lively as the Military Engineer Union. With a kind of aura that was solemn and noble, not many people were inside, but the bystanders were all full of respect as they watched those that walked out from the entrance of the Guild.
So, the special position pill masters had in Shengxuan Continent could be seen.
Standing in the middle of the Pill Masters Guild, Baili Hongzhuang sized up her surroundings.
The interior of the Pill Masters Guild appeared to be a slightly oppressing black space, filled with a solemn atmosphere.
You can’t help but be infected with this atmosphere the moment you walk in, becoming completely meticulous and serious.
The Pill Masters Guild’s front desk was straight ahead. It was a huge and long black table facing the door. A gentle lady was standing right in front of it, paying attention to each and every person entering the Guild.
The Guild was quite spacious. It’s just that there were so few people inside, so it felt very empty.
Inside the Guild, a few people wearing black robes walked past. These were the pill master robes that represented glory.
If you wore this robe, you would receive respect from countless people when you walk into a crowd. Every pill master treated this robe as a precious treasure that signified glory.
However, most of the pill masters wearing these robes were middle aged.
This was because it was very difficult to become a pill master. Specifically, the time and concentration you needed to spend isn’t little at all. Thus, by the time you’ve gained a certain degree of achievement, you would already be quite old.
Liu Qinyue was well-deserved of the title of genius pill master, becoming a rank 2 pill master at such a young age. Even in Shengxuan Continent, there weren’t many that could achieve such a thing.
Baili Hongzhuang slowly walked up to the front desk. The lady at the front desk gave a polite smile as she saw Baili Hongzhuang come over.
“Young lady, are you here to sell herbs or to buy pills?”
When young cultivators came to the Pill Masters Guild, they were basically here for only one of two reasons. Thus the receptionist directly asked this question.
Baili Hongzhuang slightly curved her lips, a smile of peerless beauty on her face, and said with a gently and harmonious voice, “I’m here to take the pill master exam.”
Hearing this, the receptionist sent a doubtful look at Baili Hongzhuang, as if not daring to believe Baili Hongzhuang’s words.
“Young lady, you’re here to take the pill master exam?” The receptionist asked unbelievingly.
Baili Hongzhuang nodded and said with certainty, “That’s correct.”
Seeing how Baili Hongzhuang replied so affirmatively, the receptionist was somewhat shocked. Though she quickly regained her composure and said, “To take the pill master exam, you have to go to the second floor. You’ll have to pay 1,000 gold coins to get the Exam Token before you can participate in the exam.”
1,000 gold coins. To ordinary commoners, this was a huge figure. However, to pill masters, this was not a daunting figure.
The reason why pill masters needed to pay 1,000 gold coins is to prevent some people from causing trouble.
After all, a pill master needs to oversee the examinees during the exam.
At that moment, a young girl around Baili Hongzhuang’s age walked over.
The girl was wearing a goose yellow dress. Her complexion was clean, fair and smooth. She had a mesmerizing palm-sized oval face, but her eyes were full of arrogance.
Her gaze shifted to the side. No matter if it was her gaze or her demeanor, everything exuded a strong arrogance. It was as if ordinary people were simply beneath her notice.
“I want to take the pill master exam.”
The girl said these words and directly placed 1,000 gold coins on the front desk, waiting for the receptionist to hand her an Exam Token.
(Im honestly not sure where military engineer union came from :/. I guess it could’ve been a typo by the author? or maybe fore shadowing?) Kiki
