Chapter 782 – Cloud Mist Peak (4)
Su Luo woke up from sleep and felt that her mind was clear with invigorating vital energy.
She held that dictionary-like book 《Records of Herbal Medicine》, and ran the entire way to the study.
Such a thick book, containing more than ten thousand kinds of medicinal herbal plants. All kinds of distinctive features and particulars that she needed to understand and memorize. This was simply challenging her physically to the limits.
However, it was fortunate that she had her space as a cheating tool that could slow down time, changing an unbendable three days into thirty days.
Otherwise, even with her photographic memory, she still wouldn’t have memorized it all.
Su Luo, with the sound of the rustle of her skirt, rushed in.
Then, she looked up to peer at her surroundings.
Very good, Beautiful Teacher still hadn’t come yet.
However, before she could wipe away her perspiration, Grandmaster Rong Yun had opened the door himself and entered.
Today, he was dressed in a brocade robe that moved with the wind, mixing together elegance and nobility together into the peak of refinement. Suddenly, he seemed like an exiled immortal from the hidden land of peace and prosperity in heaven.
He walked over slowly, when his gaze swept by Su Luo, his deep, pitch-black eyes flashed with the bright radiance of the stars.
Grandmaster Rong Yun cast a glance at Su Luo, then he sat down upright, in a heavy tone, he said: “Finished memorizing it all?”
“Know it by heart.” Su Luo nodded her head.
Grandmaster Rong Yun’s expression was still indifferent as before, keeping to his words: “Know it by heart? Then you should recite it backwards for me to have a look.”
“Yes.” Su Luo smartly approached to stand in front of him.
A short ruler stick sudden appeared in Grandmaster Rong Yun’s hand.
This ruler stick’s entire length was jet-black. It had the glossy characteristic of deep black crow wood.
Deep black crow wood was heavier and harder than the refined black iron from the deep sea.
Su Luo’s mouth twitched.
Was this prepared for when she couldn’t recite it from memory? As corporal punishment for her?
“Recite it, for every word you recite wrong from memory, I’ll hit you once. You should do as you see fit.” Grandmaster Rong Yun’s tone was cold, his gaze clearly was even more unsympathetic.
Now, Su Luo was already capable of ignoring his prejudice.
Having heard what was said, she nodded her head. With both hands crossed behind her back and full of confidence, she started to recite it backwards from memory.
Basically, she could cheat.
That 《Records of Herbal Medicine》book was right now placed in her space. If she forgot, she could go in at anytime to flip through it.
She could even do this by reading out loud that entire book.
But three days before, Beautiful Teacher’s pair of ice-cold eyes when he used a disdainful tone to say she was full of tricks had made Su Luo’s heart stifled in a breath.
Therefore, even without depending on her bag of tricks to cheat, she could still recite it correctly.
Right now, Su Luo’s tone was steady, with her chin raised, she clearly said: “…Chinese traditional medicine pellet’s level was always on its usage. Too much could be measured but could not be used. The poisonous medicinal herb Wu Chen….”
Such a thick 《Records of Herbal Medicine》book, the number of words were innumerable.
Su Luo really started to recite from the last word.
Unexpectedly, she really did recite it backwards!
Moreover, she even recited it with ease, clearly so fluent and smooth, not even a trace of a pause.
Zi Ran and Zi Yu were both at Grandmaster Rong Yun’s side to attend to him.
Now, seeing Su Luo recite from memory like this, even they who were always imperturbable, also inevitably became speechless.
Grandmaster Rong Yun’s hand that was having tea and refreshments paused slightly.
Even though his face remained unperturbed without a ripple, but that slight twitch at his temples betrayed his inner thoughts.
Su Luo’s diction was clear, neither urgent nor slow, and like this, she finished reciting the last volume.
《Records of HerbalMmedicine》was altogether split into three volumes, based on the grade of the herbal medicine.
It was separated into elementary grade herbal medicine, intermediate and advanced grade herbal medicine.
All kinds of herbal medicine with the analytics added on, and how to use the medicine. Every item required nearly thousands of words.
In addition to this, the《Records of Herbal Medicine》book was used precisely as a dictionary for herbal medicines for people to consult. The writing was extremely hard to understand.
Able to recite the entire《Records of Herbal Medicine》book, it would be very difficult to even find one person on the entire continent.
Let alone for someone to recite it backwards from memory.
Grandmaster Rong Yun lifted his eyes to met Su Luo’s.
That pair of eyes as deep as the ocean was fixed on her face.
