Chapter 730 – The competition continues (3)
Su Luo was a step ahead of her in submitting the completed examination paper.
When Grandmaster Rong Yun saw Su Luo, his thick sharp eyebrows raised slightly.
He, who had always been indifferent, unhurriedly spoke a line: “Being busy for more than half a day, must be really tiring, right?”
Other people all thought that Grandmaster Rong Yun was showing concern for Su Luo and could not help but view her in a new light.
But when Su Luo heard this line, her heart trembled slightly.
She knew that Grandmaster Rong Yun, who was also a space mage, had realized it.
Su Luo raised her eyes and looked at Grandmaster Rong Yun’s appearance.
But she saw that his expression was the same as always. Only at an angle she could see, a trace of interest flashed across that pair of pitch-black as ink, deep eyes.
In her heart, Su Luo speculated secretly: This Grandmaster Rong Yun was really interesting.
“Cough, cough.” Grandmaster Rong Yun stared at her for a moment.
Su Luo touched her nose, then with tail between her legs, she ran back to her group of people.
Since Grandmaster Rong Yun was so magnanimous as to let her go, then she didn’t need to flaunt being let off lightly.
So, confronted with the Jade Lake’s fairy’s provocative gaze, Su Luo’s expression was calm and collected like water. She raised an eyebrow and smiled.
Seated on high, Grandmaster Rong Yun examined the test papers thoroughly on the spot.
Below, it was divided into three factions.
Jade Lake’s Li family’s faction stood on the left side.
The neutral faction stood in the middle.
And Su Luo, Beichen Ying’s trio, stood on the right side.
At this time, the Jade Lake’s Li family was immensely proud of themselves, with an air of arrogance that soared to the sky.
Because, the way they saw it, Su Luo, as an Elementary Apothecary, had no way of beating the Jade Lake’s fairy.
Of course, the Jade Lake’s fairy herself thought so too.
Consequently, she stood proudly and occasionally would cast a glance at Su Luo, with traces of a sneer in them.
Compared to the Jade Lake’s Li family’s self-confidence, Su Luo’s side seemed to be lacking a great deal of confidence.
Beichen Ying simply comforted Su Luo directly: “It’s no big deal. This is only the second round. If it’s a loss, then it’s a loss. Later, there are still opportunities.”
Lan Xuan also joined the comforting procession: “After all, Li Yaoyao had started learning to be an Apothecary from when she was young. Sister-in-law, you’ve only learned for how long? So, even if you lose, that is merely an issue of time.”
Anye Ming nodded his head in agreement.
Su Luo was extremely speechless: “Is this just how little faith you have in me?”
“Sister-in-law, you should just save your grief.” The three of them spoke in unison.
Su Luo let out a snort and turned her body away.
Since even Beichen and the others felt she would undoubtedly lose, then, naturally, the rest of the people would also have the same thought.
Su Luo unhurriedly looked towards the Jade Lake’s fairy.
And it so happened that right at this moment, the Jade Lake’s fairy was also looking at her.
The two people’s pair of eyes meet. Although they had similar smiles on their faces, sparks were flying everywhere when their gazes met.
Not long after, Grandmaster Rong Yun placed the two test papers on the table, in passing, he leisurely raised his eyes.
For a moment, everyone’s gaze were focused on Grandmaster Rong Yun’s face.
Each and every one of the Jade Lake’s Li family was as excited as if they had been injected with chicken blood. Happy rays of light were flashing faintly across their eyes.
Grandmaster Rong Yun indicated to Apothecary Leng, who was standing at the side, to announce the results.
Apothecary Leng stood in the center, his voice resonant and clear: “Second round, Li Yaoyao, full marks!”
“Wow——” Everyone simultaneously looked towards the Jade Lake’s fairy!
The test questions set by Grandmaster Rong Yun, the Jade Lake’s fairy could actually get full marks!
In this case, wasn’t she going to win for sure? Unless Su Luo could also get full marks.
But was there even a possibility? Everyone all felt this was definitely impossible.
As a result, now, there were already countless cynical and sneering gazes sweeping over Su Luo, with cold smiles on their faces as they rejoiced in other people’s misfortune.
Apothecary Leng had a restrained and contained expression as he silently swept his gaze in a circle over the people below. A trace of disdain flashed across his eyes. With both his hands crossed in front, his head held high and his chest stuck out, he announced the final result.
“Second round, Su Luo, full marks!”
Full marks? How was this possible!!!
