Chapter 18 – Talent to become an Apothecarist

“What do you mean?” Su Luo quizzically asked.

Nangong Liuyun also could not tell where the problem surfaced. He gently knocked Su Luo’s forehead. “Don’t worry, nobody can deny that you are definitely a genius among geniuses, but proving this point may be difficult. Since you have already waited these past 10 years, waiting an extra few days should not matter much, am I right?”

“Eh?” Su Luo determinedly stared at him, “Don’t tell me that this unexpected withdrawal is a special case?”

Nangong Liuyun sympathetically gazed at her and solemnly nodded.

Su Luo slumped to the floor while holding her head in anguish. Why was her fate this miserable?

“Let me tell you some good news.” Nangong Liuyun couldn’t bear to see her like this. So he leaned close to her grinning with his unique blend of devilish mysterious charm.

“Speak,” Su Luo replied curtly.

“Your talent really is quite formidable. Did you see the bright rays surrounding you? Do you remember what color it was?

“Green with a hint of orange?” Su Luo unsurely replied.

Nangong Liuyou gently rubbed Su Luo’s head, his movements were similar to petting a puppy. His mouth held a hint of tenderness that even he didn’t realize: “Silly girl, don’t you know that the green color represents the wood element while orange color denotes the fire element?”

“You’re saying?”

“Correct, you have two elemental attributes and they are wood and fire.” A touch of envy appeared in Nangong Liuyun’s eyes.” A lot of people worship the dual elemental combination of earth and fire.”

“What are you so jealous of?” Su Luo asked, perplexed. She already heard from Lu Luo before that the legendary Prince Jin is a tri-elemental practitioner, then why would he envy her dual elements?

“Girl, you really don’t know how blessed you are.” Nangong Liuyun considerately helped her off the floor and resettled her onto a cushioned lounge to the side. To clear up her confusion he started to explain. “If it were any other elements, even having two is nothing special, but the appearance of both wood and fire elements in the same person, do you know what this means?”

“What?” Su Luo blankly stared him. She really knew next to nothing about this world that respected the powerful.

“When the wood and fire element appear together, it heralds the emergence of Apothecary talent. Girl, do you know about Apothecaries? Her lost expression look so adorable that he furtively stroked her little pink cheeks.

Su Luo glared at him and indifferently said: “ Please explain.”

Nangong Liuyun laughed heartily: “People with multiple elements are already rare, but the condition of having dual wood and fire elements to become an Apothecarist is even more scarce. Thus, Apothecaries are rare existences in this world with extremely exalted status. Take you as an example, if your father knew about your talent he would utilize everything to support you. Let alone have the courage to bully you, people would even be afraid to criticize you.”

“Apothecaries are that useful?” Su Luo tilted her delicate face and carefully asked.

Of course, ever heard of the Limit Breaking Immortal Pill? With just one pill, one would be able to breakthrough the bottleneck to reach the next level. Now do you still think Apothecaries are useless?” Nangong Liuyun gently rubbed her head.” Now do you understand how awe-inspiring your talent is? Does your heart feel a little better now?

“But…” Su Luo looked at hands, then glanced at the clear transparent crystal ball. Her spiritual strength was way too weird.

“Wait for me for three days.” A rarely seen serious expression appeared on Nangong Liuyun’s face as his ink black eyes burned with brilliance. “I will give you an answer after three days.”

Looks like it is necessary to visit Sinking Sunset Peak. A complex expression flashed across Nangong Liuyun’s eyes….

    Can someone explains what he meant by the crystal ball having problem or something from the last + him asking her to wait this chapter?

    Still…a seemingly useless person turns out to be someone reincarnated and have not only high spiritual power, but also the requirement of pill-making…it’s like a mix of Doulou Dalu (reincarnate with high spirit power) and BTTH (also reincarnate…though doesn’t get mentioned much later, is considered trash after the incident, then not only regain former power but also become receptarier/Apothecary)

      Well, this is just my guess, but the crystal ball having a problem could either be his joke, or more likely, in my opinion, him referring to the crystal ball before(the first time she took the test) having a problem, since it didn’t sense her incredible spiritual power. The difference in spiritual power might possibly be due to her ‘crossing over’ from assassin to the current body. That’s my theory, of course.

      Him asking her to wait might be because he wants to investigate why there was a discrepancy between the spiritual power results of her past and present. Well, that will be seen whether it’s true in the coming chapters, probably.
      Hope that helped!

        To the people who are unsure what problem the crystal ball had: It had a buffer overflow, looping back to zero. She was SO strong that the crystal couldn’t handle it, went to black, then clear (making it seem like she was useless).

    Thank you for the chapter. Just one thing:

    Nangong Liuyun also could not tell where the problem surfaced, h.

    is that h supposed to be there? Or was something cut off?

    > Girl do you about Apothecaries?

    Shouldn’t this be “Girl, do you know about Apothecaries?”

  7. GemGem says:

    BTTH??? I wonder which novel was written first though….

  8. Celestial Flame says:

    So the question remains Sabotage or talent surpassing the test used?
