Chapter 725 – Second round of the match (2)
The Jade Lake’s fairy was dressed in a purple gown with roses and had an unmatched beautiful complexion. She had a shallow smile on her face while standing alone, like a fairy who came to the human world, beyond noble.
Time passed by in minutes and seconds.
Seeing that the time was no longer early, Su Luo, as the lead, unexpectedly still hadn’t arrived yet.
Momentarily, everyone inevitably started to talk
“Where is Su family’s daughter by a concubine? Why is it that she still hasn’t come?”
“Can’t be that she is automatically forfeiting, right? After all, she is merely only at the level of an Elementary Apothecary.”
“It may still be possible. The first round was because of her good luck. But this second round is truly an examination to test her knowledge. How could she, as a lowly insignificant Elementary Apothecary, compete with the Jade Lake’s fairy?”
“That’s right. The Jade Lake’s fairy is already an Advanced Apothecary! Su family’s daughter by a concubine must be afraid and doesn’t dare to come.”
For a moment, everyone’s tongue was wagging. The situation was extremely not beneficial to Su Luo. The overwhelming majority of the people wanted Su Luo to forfeit.
Apothecary Leng was so anxious that he stood on his tiptoes, constantly peering outside.
However, no matter how much he peered around, Su Luo’s silhouette still hadn’t appeared in his line of sight.
Apothecary Leng was secretly worried in his heart: this damned girl, at the most critical moment, where did she go? Last time, she was also late, if she was late again this time, then it’s truly…Apothecary Leng felt that if he was Grandmaster Rong Yun, then he would also be mad!
The Jade Lake’s Li family, seeing this, couldn’t help but be secretly pleased.
It seems like this loathsome girl really does had some self-knowledge. She knew she couldn’t compete, therefore, she voluntarily forfeited. This was also something that could be understood. After all, forfeiting was much better than losing face at the scene.
Li Aoqiong coldly smiled, deliberately taunted and said: “Su family’s, that girl, has such a grand style, making Grandmaster Rong Yun and His Majesty wait here for her.”
Similarly, Li Yaoxiang also repeatedly sneered: “Looks like this girl is automatically forfeiting. However, this is also right. How could she, as an Elementary Apothecary, compete with our family’s Yaoyao?”
Apothecary Leng sent an impatient glare towards Li Yaoxiang: “If your family’s Yaoyao is so great, how was it that she didn’t even win the first round?”
These words were indeed sharp, directly pointing out the critical point.
Li Yaoxiang was immediately choked off, his complexion flushed red, and he loudly blurted out: “That’s because a person lean…”
Touching on Grandmaster Rong Yun’s deep eyes smiling with not quite a smile, Li Yaoxiang’s heart trembled, gloomily turning his face away.
If he dared to shout out that Grandmaster Rong Yun was partial at the scene, then, this round of examination, Li Yaoyao wouldn’t need to take it. She would have to directly packed up and been sent home.
But Li Aoqiong continued and said: “ Su Luo is not coming, we shouldn’t let Grandmaster Rong Yun and His Majesty wait around in vain, right?”
He deliberately pointed out these two, the reason was to arouse everyone’s fury.
As expected, with his reminder, a lot of bureaucrats in Li family’s faction stepped forward one by one to talk to the emperor.
“Your Majesty, since Su family’s daughter by a concubine has automatically forfeited, this round ought to be concluded right?”
“Even if she comes, it is also her having disrespected Your Majesty and Grandmaster Rong Yun. This kind of disciple, what’s the use of having?”
“The Jade Lake’s fairy is hundreds of fold better than her. She was able to pass the first round because of luck. Otherwise she would have already been eliminated…”
As a result, after hearing these negative voices, Emperor Jing hesitated. His gaze looked towards Grandmaster Rong Yun.
Grandmaster Rong Yun’s eyes were deep and hidden. No one could make out a hint of his mood from that indifferent expression on his face.
Apothecary Leng gave two humphs: “Doesn’t the Jade Lake’s Li family have a lot of confidence in Li Yaoyao? What, you guys are just this afraid of competing with Luo girl?”
“Who’s afraid?” Li Yaoxiang gave a furious glare at Apothecary Leng who always opposed Jade Lake’s Li family.
“Oh, if you guys are not afraid, why must you try to forcefully cancel her qualifications to compete? Isn’t because you guys are afraid Li Yaoyao would be defeated by Su Luo?”
