 "A couple of good-for-nothings! You can't produce potions, and yet you are competent enough to think of these useless ideas! Do you even intend to become an herbalist?" Luo De was extremely angry. An herbalist was a sensitive profession that could save and harm people at the same time. A good potion could save someone's life, and a lousy potion can push them into a bottomless fire pit.

An herbalist was prohibited from using external items to catalyze the process when they produce a potion.

Yet, those two students had dared to do that right under his nose! It was as if they wanted to throw that onto his face!

When Shen Yanxiao arrived at the entrance, she overheard Luo De's angry voice. She blinked when she witnessed the scene in his room. She hesitated, and she wondered if she should wait outside until things were quieter.

The two students did not dare to utter a single word, and Luo De continued to glare at them angrily. Then he saw Shen Yanxiao outside his room just as she deliberated her hesitation.

"Shen Jue, you're here." Luo De's expression eased when he saw Shen Yanxiao.

"Teacher Luo De," Shen Yanxiao greeted him and then walked into his room. She chanced a glance at the two students that Luo De had berated just moments ago. Luo De had been quite savage in his scolding of those two students.

"I heard from your teacher that you have been sick for the past few days? Are you feeling any better now?" Luo De was quite soft in his tone when he spoke to Shen Yanxiao. One might even call it a whisper. It was a far cry from the tone that he had just used with his students.

The vast difference in their teacher's attitude caused those two students to look at Shen Yanxiao.

The little guy in front of them had a small physique and a dull appearance. They also noticed the pentagram-shaped badge on his chest, which meant that he was only a first-year student in the Herbalist Division.

How could a plain-looking first-year student make a teacher well-known for his strict temperament to be so gentle with him?

"I've more or less recovered." Shen Yanxiao touched her nose briefly. From Luo De's tone, it seemed like he had no intention to find fault with her.

"Very good." Luo De nodded. Even though Shen Yanxiao was not his student, he was rather attentive toward the first-year student who had passed his test and entered the Herbalist Division. Shen Yanxiao's teacher had given him all the potions that she had done, and he knew each of those potions like the back of his palm.

That was the reason Luo De was shocked by Shen Yanxiao's apparent talent in herbalism.

Shen Yanxiao had produced every single one of those potions to perfection. Even Luo De could not find a single flaw with them.

"Studies are important, but your health is also equally as important. Don't tire yourself and harm your body." Luo De revealed a rare smile.

Shen Yanxiao nodded obediently, but she was secretly surprised at the gentleness of Luo De's words because of his image as a strict teacher.

Was that what one might call a soft spot for a particular student?

Shen Yanxiao felt quite helpless about the situation.

The other two students got more apprehensive when they heard the way Luo De spoke to Shen Yanxiao. Was that really their teacher, Luo De? The same teacher who had given them a tongue-lashing just moments ago?

When had their teacher ever instructed a student to care for their health? Was that a joke?

Their teacher could not have been so gentle!

"May I know why you have called for me, Teacher Luo De?" Shen Yanxiao asked.

Luo De looked at Shen Yanxiao, and then directed a disappointing glance at his two students. Then he said with a heavy sigh, "Let's not talk about that first. I have a potion here that I wanted you to produce. After you have done that, I will then tell you why I have called for you."
