Mu Hongyu was stunned, and she ran to catch up to Chu Liuyue . “Heavenly Pharmacy? Isn’t that where the academy stores all sorts of herbs? You’re going to… get herbs?”
Chu Liuyue nodded . As the top academy in Country Yao Chen, Tian Lu Academy should have a number of treasures in its storage . I’m going to go take a look there first .
“I’ll go there myself . You should go check and see if Ji Yurong has been acting strangely recently or if he has been meeting someone more often . He’s of ordinary birth, so the poison has to come from somewhere . ”
Mu Hongyu was a little hesitant . “Of course, I can do that . However, the Heavenly Pharmacy is heavenly doctor territory . I don’t think it’s going to be that easy for you to go get herbs…”
Mu Hongyu was being as subtle as she could .
In reality, most people could not set foot in the Heavenly Pharmacy apart from the heavenly doctors . It was not that they were not allowed, but the rules around it were too strict . Students who wanted to take herbs from the Heavenly Pharmacy had to apply for it . Also, their request would only be approved if they had a good enough reason .
But heavenly doctors were easily able to get anything they wanted because they could say it was for refining . Unfortunately, it was not that simple for warriors and Xuan masters .
Chu Liuyue raised her brows . “Are warriors and Xuan Masters not qualified to go there?”
“That’s not it… We only go there when we’re hurt occasionally…” Mu Hongyu wrinkled her nose . “You don’t know it, but the heavenly doctors are all really arrogant! They’re all so hard to get along with!”
Chu Liuyue laughed . The talent requirement for heavenly doctors was rather high, so they usually were like that . “Even though I’m not cultivating there, I did pass the heavenly doctor examination . Hence, I don’t think they’ll make things difficult for me . ”
Mu Hongyu pouted . “That might not be the case . ”
Chu Liuyue patted Mu Hongyu’s shoulders . “Don’t worry . ”
The two split up, and Chu Liuyue headed for the back mountain .
The Heavenly Pharmacy was built on one of the academy’s steepest mountains . The other students did not go there if they did not have any business there .
The further she went up the mountain, the quieter it was .
After about ten minutes, Chu Liuyue finally saw the Heavenly Pharmacy’s signboard .
The building was five stories tall . It did not seem that much different from other buildings, but she felt an invisible ripple when she got closer .
There was a strong barrier erected outside of the Heavenly Pharmacy .
Young men stood outside the bronze doors as if standing guard .
“Who are you? What are you here for?” asked one of them coldly when they saw Chu Liuyue .
Chu Liuyue said, “I’m Chu Liuyue, here to collect herbs . ”
Surprise flashed across their faces when they heard her name . They knew her name very well . After all, she was the prodigy who placed first and second in the warrior assessment and Xuan Master assessment, respectively . Not to mention the fact that Chu Liuyue had made these accomplishments on the same day she passed all three of the academy’s entrance examinations .
Even though they did not pay much attention to the affairs of warriors and Xuan Masters, this was not the first time they had heard her name . However, they did not expect her to show up there .
“You’re Chu Liuyue?” The young man scrutinized her .
Chu Liuyue nodded .
“You must send an application to collect herbs from the Heavenly Pharmacy . Fill in the form first!” The young man flung his sleeve as he spoke, and something flew towards Chu Liuyue .
She caught it and raised her eyebrows .
It was a plank of wood and a brush . The wood was blackish and palm-sized . It was rather rough to the touch .
“Write down whatever you want, and we’ll send the application in for review . If it’s approved, we’ll hand you the items . ” The young man spoke nonchalantly in a strictly business-like manner .
Chu Liuyue looked at the object in her hand and laughed . It seems like Mu Hongyu was right about them . The heavenly doctors really are arrogant and like to make things difficult for others .
The plank was not ordinary; it was made of a Black Sage Vine’s trunk . The material was strong and hard . A knife might not even be able to leave marks on it .
As for writing…
The brush was dry, without a drop of ink . How was she to write?
She shook the items in her hand . “Write it on here?”
The two young men nodded in unison as they prepared to see Chu Liuyue embarrass herself .
Chu Liuyue did not say anything . She picked up the brush and began to write on the plank .
The brush did not leave a single mark on the plank .
Chu Liuyue paused and frowned, a little surprised .
The two young men looked at each other, mocking expressions on their faces . What genius? How is she a prodigy that passed all three assessments? Is this all she is capable of?
Chu Liuyue looked up and smiled apologetically . “I’m sorry, but there seems to be a problem with this . Could you give me another one?”
“Another one? Each person only gets one, why…”
One of them immediately rejected her, but his friend immediately cut him off . “On account of this being your first time, you can have another one . ”
With that, he flung another plank at Chu Liuyue .
“Hey, Mo Liang, according to the rules, we cannot…” said Cui Yao disapprovingly, but he saw Mo Liang make a face at him .
Cui Yao paused for a moment before he understood that Mo Liang was playing a prank on her! If the replacement still does not work, won’t it be extra embarrassing?
Since Chu Liuyue had entered the academy, she had received countless praises . She had also been in the limelight the entire time . Now was the perfect time to take her down a notch!
So many people have praised her as a genius, but she does not seem so intelligent now!
The two exchanged glances and kept quiet as they watched Chu Liuyue, waiting for her to embarrass herself .
As expected, Chu Liuyue did not manage to leave a trace on the plank . She paused as if a little embarrassed and confused .
Cui Yao and Mo Liang could barely contain their smiles .
“Chu Liuyue, it seems like this one doesn’t work either . Would you like another one?” Mo Liang asked teasingly .
Chu Liuyue glanced at him before hesitantly saying, “Thank you for the trouble . ”
“It’s no trouble! We’re all schoolmates, so it’s only natural that we help one another out . ” Mo Liang suppressed his smile and threw another plank at Chu Liuyue .
Chu Liuyue now had three planks .
“Hey Chu Liuyue, if it still doesn’t work, how about a few more? When you’re done trying, a good one is bound to appear, right? Hahaha!” Cui Yao burst out laughing .
Even a fool would be able to tell that something was off now . However, to their surprise, Chu Liuyue was not embarrassed . Instead, she shook her head with a smile .
“It’s fine . These planks are more than enough . ” With that, she walked over to the side and picked up an amygdalin leaf .
Cui Yao’s laughter was cut short when he saw this . A sense of uneasiness also rose in Mo Liang’s heart .
Chu Liuyue used the amygdalin leaf to wipe the plank before picking up the brush again .
As the brush flowed across the plank, white words appeared clearly .
