Chapter 146.4: Desire to Win Over
The youth was bedazzled for a brief moment before he regained his senses looking slightly embarrassed as he scratched the back of his head and said a little sheepishly: “It’s just that I have ever seen Big Brother like that and thought it was strange.”
The man then laugh softly, the sound highly pleasing to the ear. “Look like what?”
It was only after some contemplation that the youth was able to put together an explanation. “Like a rock was suddenly tossed into the smooth mirror like surface of a calm lake, that caused a big splash, or like a lifeless barren plain, that was raging with fire…..”
“I can’t really explain it well, but it felt as if the Chief, had suddenly become very human.”
No longer fleeting and unreal, like an imagined illusory figure, feeling so far distant even when he was close by, like an enigma that is not from this world. In those eyes, they had been shining with an incredibly intense light…..
The type of light that pressingly yearned to possess something.
The smile on the man’s lips stiffened slightly. [Suddenly become human?]
[Maybe that is true. For some unknown reason, the image of that person had just unconsciously appeared right before his eyes just now, and he could not help but fall into a helpless daze, a fiery fervour immediately rising up in his heart.]
[But, he had no recollection of that person at all before. Sigh, it was such a strange thing that happened right out of the blue.]
Time trickled on bit by bit and the batches of participants went in one after another, until it was Mu Lai’s turn. And after her, Qing Yu and Ming Yi Yi would be up.
Compared to how nervous the other people were, Mu Lai as a prodigy in both Medicine and Martial Arts was naturally much more competent, and did not have to worry about being eliminated.
Towards a prodigy like her, the Faint Mist Sect would surely be in a rush to recruit her and it would be the Faint Mist Sect’s loss if they were to eliminate her.
Moreover her heart was not really fully invested in joining a sect and hence she was naturally not that concerned.
After waving to Qing Yu and the others, Mu Lai went walking in with the other young men and women whose numbers were called.
Coincidentally, these people were also Elixir Cultivators and the test for this round was naturally set to assess their abilities in Medicine.
The venue for the test was in a small sized elixir cultivation room mainly used for trials and competitions in the Faint Mist Sect. The place was able to hold twelve participants to cultivate elixirs at one time, an elixir cauldron at each position, and a variety of herbs placed beside it.
But looking at it, the equipment seemed rather old and battered.
“The topic for today’s test is a medium grade level seven elixir. Anyone who breaks the elixir cauldron will be eliminated, insufficient level in cultivated elixir will also be eliminated. The use of your own elixir cauldron is prohibited and you cannot use your own herbs. If any acts of deceit or cheating is discovered, you will be banned from participating in the Faint Mist Sect’s recruitment trials for life. The time starts now and the time limit is when the stick of incense burns out.”
