189 Path of an Archer 2

 Xiu's voice echoed in her mind.

"Do not fret. I am here."

The Magic Stone did not even fluctuate in the slightest bit. It remained in its faint and dull appearance.

"Alright, next student, please." After he was sure that the Magic Stone did not react, the teacher continued to rush the students. He did not even believe that the warlock would conceal himself as an herbalist. After all, the first-year students had undergone stringent tests before they could enroll in the Herbalist Division. How would the warlock have the energy to research the curses and simultaneously learned about herbalism?

Therefore, the teacher was not suspicious of Shen Yanxiao's hesitation at all. He thought that the child looked like a typical thirteen-year-old. He probably could not break through to become a sixth-ranked Apprentice Magician, let alone a warlock.

Shen Yanxiao sighed in relief and hastily walked away from the Magic Stone.

Tang Nazhi, who stood at the side, chuckled and held her shoulders as he teased her, "Why are you so nervous? Look at the tautness of your face!"

Shen Yanxiao subconsciously touched her face. She was nervous because she did not know if Xiu would help her. Fortunately, the teachers at the Herbalism Division did not notice anything out of the ordinary.

"This is my first time seeing a Magic Stone, so I was somewhat nervous." That was the truth as she indeed had never seen a Magic Stone in her life.

Tang Nazhi laughed out loud and patted her shoulders.

"Isn't it just some broken old stone? However, as an herbalist, I reckon that you would not have the chance to touch it again in the future."

It was for the best if she did not need to touch it in the future! Shen Yanxiao was secretly relieved. She did not know how Xiu managed to achieve it, but she was glad that her identity was not exposed.

Since there was no problem with their tests, Tang Nazhi and Shen Yanxiao were allowed to leave the public plaza.

Shen Yanxiao immediately hid the sheepskin book in her space ring when she reached her dormitory. Since the academy suspected the existence of a warlock, she had to eliminate all traces of her deed. She did not wish to encounter similar situations in the future.

Shen Yanxiao and Tang Nazhi gathered so much information when they went out in search of food in the evening. The test for the rest of the students in the Academy lasted until late in the afternoon. However, the result was not something that they had expected. Every one of the students had stood in front of the Magic Stone, and yet none of them incurred any sign of abnormalities in the sone. Therefore, the warlock's identity was yet to be discovered.

The teachers were puzzled with the result, and the students were extremely nervous. According to the rumors, the dean left with a frown after he heard the results.

Shen Yanxiao felt that the matter would not be left just like that. Ouyang Huanyu would probably come up with other plans to catch the culprit.

It seemed like she had to be extra careful during that period, and she would have to avoid using any curses too.

After the warlock crisis, the Saint Laurent Academy officially began their classes the next day. Shen Yanxiao and Tang Nazhi had also collected their long violet robes.

With badges pinned on their chests to indicate that they were part of the Herbalist Division's first-year students, Shen Yanxiao and Tang Nazhi headed toward the classroom.

Many students had already arrived at the huge classroom. Shen Yanxiao and Tang Nazhi managed to find seats at the back of the room, and they sat down there.

The teacher who would teach them the fundamentals of herbalism was a fifty-year-old man. He entered the classroom with a taut expression on his face, and thus, he looked quite stern.

"Even though you are in this classroom now, do not assume that you will be here forever. For the next three years, you will experience numerous tests. Only those who can maintain their advantage throughout these tests will be able to continue to be in this classroom," the old man said sternly.
