Chapter 788 – Dumbstruck (3)
Seeing his silhouette as he left, Su Luo gave a bitter laugh as she rubbed her chin.
Was her performance today too shocking?
To the extent that the gentle and calm Zi Ran had become as excited as a hairless child.
Grandmaster Rong Yun was wearing a wide white robe, the soft, luxurious robe’s hem piled up like warm clouds. Layer upon layers of it was folded up and arranged at the edge of the red sandalwood chair.
He sat upright under the branches of a wisteria tree blooming with flowers. He was just in the process of playing chess with himself.
Beside him was a small red clay teapot that was giving bubbling sounds of tea that was simmering.
Having heard Zi Ran who, with a slight trembling voice, gave his report.
Grandmaster RongYun casually placed a chess piece down. He did not lift his eyes and only faintly said a sentence: “Got it, you can go now.”
Master was not the least bit surprised?
However, he had already stayed beside Grandmaster Rong Yun for many years. He naturally understood a bit about his indifferent temperament, so Zi Ran silently retreated.
After Zi Ran had left, Grandmaster Rong Yun tossed aside the chess piece in his hand. He leaned back on the wide red sandalwood chair.
His slender white fingers beat a tempo on his armrest. Grandmaster Rong Yun’s face showed a smiling expression as gentle and warm as jade. It was as intoxicating and resplendent as the blooming peach blossoms in April.
“This girl…” Grandmaster Rong Yun bitterly smiled and sighed, shaking his head.
Zi Ran once again returned to the refining medicine room.
“What did Master say?” Su Luo blinked her eyes.
Zi Ran waved his hands: “Only master’s amethyst gold medicinal cauldron could be compared to Elder Zi Huo’s medicinal cauldron. How could any others compete with it? Naturally, Master will let you use Zi Huo’s medicinal cauldron.”
It was truly enviable and made people jealous.
This time, Little Junior Sister’s stuff was already complete. Only waiting for her refining skill to reach a certain level, then she would automatically be promoted.
In the following month, Zi Ran looked after Su Luo at his side. Little by little, he carefully give her pointers.
Sometimes, Zi Ran would see Su Luo’s crude refining hand technique. He wished he could rush up and chop off her hands.
With such heaven-defying conditions, her refining hand techniques were so coarse that it was even worse than an Elementary Apothecary’s.
“I am completely self-taught.” Su Luo explained and defended herself.
Zi Ran had no way to respond and said: “Fortunately, at that time, there was no examination on the spot for refining drugs. Otherwise, with your crude hand skills, wouldn’t other people have laughed themselves to death?”
Even though Zi Ran said words like this, he was still very patient as he corrected Su Luo’s mistakes bit by bit.
This was also the difference between the wrong method sects and the upright sects.
Su Luo was incomparably glad that she had won against Li Yaoyao at that time. Otherwise, just depending on her fumbling around, when would she improve?
It’s no wonder that she couldn’t advance no matter what.
With Zi Ran’s careful guidance, she was able to endure for a month and a half.
On a moonless and windy night, Su Luo finally advanced to Intermediate Apothecary.
Su Luo’s Intermediate Apothecary status was different from others.
Because when she was at the Intermediate Apothecary level, she could refine medicinal pills that were at the Advance grade!
This point made Zi Ran so envious that his eyeballs were about to pop out.
Because, based on his level as an Advanced Apothecary, the Spirit Restoration Pills that he refined were only a little bit better than the ones Su Luo refined as an Intermediate Apothecary.
“Little Junior Sister, I am already unable to teach you anything else. You should go find Master.” Zi Ran rubbed his nose with an expression that was crying and smiling at the same time.
Who would have thought that this girl’s learning abilities would be this strong?
All kinds of conditions that were exceptional advantages she enjoyed as an Apothecary were nothing compared to her. She actually had a strong retentive memory and worked hard to a heaven-defying degree. It was only a little more than a month, and he felt that his several decades of Apothecary knowledge had been emptied out by her.
In fact, Zi Ran didn’t know that the time in Su Luo’s space was slower than actual time by tenfold.
“In the future, I must follow Master ah….” Su Luo couldn’t help but sigh faintly.
