“Yue Yue, look!” Little Seven pulled Sima You Yue’s hand, pulling her to look at the entrance .
Sima You Yue was in the midst of looking at the people around them and was pulled by Little Seven towards the entrance to take a look .
“VIP entrance . ” Little Seven reminded .
Sima You Yue turned around to see those people who came in, her eyes flashed a trace of happiness .
Xia Chang Tian and Zhao Xiang Qi walked in front, followed by Wu La Mai and Shui Qing Man, along with them, was someone who missed for a few days, Wu Lingyu and those old guys from Sage Pavilion .
“Those are the old guys from Sage Pavilion!” Little Seven rubbed her chin seemingly lost in thought when she saw Sage Pavilion’s leader, Shao Yun Xiao .
Sima You Yue also noticed Shao Yun Xiao, she heard this name many times but this was the first time she saw him with her own eyes .
She stared at him swiftly and fiercely when she remembered that he was trying to make use of Wu Lingyu’s body .
Zhao Yun Xiao felt the peculiar stare and scanned the contestants below but didn’t find any of them who was staring at him in dissatisfaction .
Sima You Yue lifted her head up after she felt the scanning stopped .
“They came here just right on time . ” Little Seven said distinctly .
Last time when nothing happened, they didn’t come, but now they appeared .
Sima You Yue glanced at Wu Lingyu’s pale face and said, “Senior Brother is injured . ”
“He’s injured?” Little Seven took a closer look and said, “Seems like something is off . But having to see him like this, it doesn’t look like a big deal, don’t worry . ”
“Mm . Don’t worry, I won’t let this affect the contest . ” Sima You Yue responded .
She could tell that although he was injured, it meant that something that happened before, meaning it had already passed since he is here right now, he wasn’t someone who would take his life lightly .
Mm, except for her stuff, other stuff was like that .
Xia Chang Tian and the others went up to the main platform, invited Wu La Mai and the rest to their seat signalling to wait for the host below .
Song Jiang was killed in the turmoil earlier, this time, Pill Subdivision and Guild would choose a new host .
After the host went up, the whole arena went silent .
“I’m the host for this contest, Ji Qing Yuan . Without further ado, we now invite all the contestants into the arena . ” Ji Qing Yuan spoke concisely, everyone entered the arena after hearing him .
Ji Qing Yuan waved, thousands of tables and chairs appeared in front of each and every contestant .
“In front of you, there’s an examination paper in the drawer under your table, your mission today is to finish answering the examination papers . Adding on, the front ones are one team, behind ones are the second team, the examination papers for both teams are different . Remember to check before you answer the questions . ” He stopped talking right after finishing his sentence .
All the contestants opened the drawer, inside it was a paper and pen .
Sima You Yue took out those exam papers and scanned through, it was the same as the sect last time, Team Two was written on the most top corner .
“Okay, second . ” She couldn’t help me but ridiculed .
Why were all the younger ones in the second team? Much second!
She roughly flipped through, this thick stack needed at least half a day to finish .
“So many questions, how are the people in the guild going to evaluate?” Someone muttered softly .
“Who knows?! Start doing it, if you can’t finish it, you will be disqualified . ”
“That’s right, let’s start doing!”
“Everyone does their own papers, you will be considered as violating the rules and be disqualified . ” Ji Qing Yuan warned those who muttered .
Those people quickly shut their mouth, they came all the way here, if they got disqualified because of this, their bad reputation would be passed around in the circles of alchemists .
Sima You Yue flipped to the first page and started doing one by one .
These questions were the basic knowledge, for example, what to do in order to better purified medicine ingredients or what kind of medicine ingredient has what kind of usage, or which medicine ingredient couldn’t be mixed together etc . From simple to complicated, from easy to hard, the difficulty kept increasing and the time taken from contestants got longer and longer .
Sima You Yue bowed her head and did the questions, she felt someone staring at her and raised her head to look around and saw a stranger staring at her . That guy didn’t feel awkward realising that he was staring at her, lowered his head and continued doing his papers .
Sima You Yue spinned the charcoal pencil in her hand, although she didn’t know that person but he looked as if he knew her .
She thought for a while and after confirming that she didn’t know this person, she continued doing her papers .
As time passed, most of the contestants had finished their own papers and lined up to hand in the examination papers .
Sima You Yue joined the queue too .
She thought the same as the others earlier, there were so many questions, how long did it have to take for the Guild to get the results, but now she knew, they only needed a while to get the results of one contestant .
Soon, it would be her turn as she lined up in front of the queue .
“Put your examination papers in here . ” Ji Qing Yuan rarely showed a slight smile .
Sima You Yue had doubts, but she still smiled at him and put her papers inside .
That was a pail of special medicine liquid, it wouldn’t wet the papers and it would show the correct answers . If the answers were wrong, then the answers would become red .
“Such a top grade medicine liquid . ” She couldn’t help but sighed .
“This actually isn’t really top graded . ” Ji Qing Yuan continued, “The answer was originally on the papers, just that it was written in a special medicine ink, now this medicine liquid will only show its shape . ”
“I see . Thank you . ”
The answers slowly appeared, the staff who were at the side then took her papers and started calculating her scores .
“Ninety nine points . ” The staff announced .
“Ninety nine points?”
“Ninety nine points?”
Everyone who was there called out in shock, Sima You Yue cried out as well .
Ji Qing Yuan took the paper and flipped, indeed, there was only one red spot .
“Ninety nine points?” Sima You Yue frowned, “How could it be ninety nine points? Let me see the papers . ”
Ji Qing Yuan then handed her the papers, Sima You Yue then flipped to the red spot and took a closer look and said, “This should be a mistake . ”
That was a question of judgement, asking if a water attributed Scarlet Star Grass could be used if it was mixed with fire attributed Fire Star Grass .
“This is general knowledge, these two kind of medicine ingredients cannot be refined together . ” Ji Qing Yuan continued, “These two kind of medicine ingredients are very strong, if they’re together, the furnace will explode, so for this question, it’s right to say that it’s not able to be used together . ”
Sima You Yue shook her head and firmly stood on her way of thinking and positively said, “If the method is used correctly, it can be refined together . ”
“Pfft——” Sounds of sneering came from the back .
“Scarlet Star Grass and Fire Star Grass can be used together? Are you even an alchemist? This is the most basic general knowledge and you don’t even know!”
“Right, just one wrong answer, do you even need to dawdle? If these two medicines can be mixed together, I’ll swallow these papers!”
