279 Great Herbalists Provocation 2

 Just as the atmosphere reached a freezing point, a white-robed elder slowly walked in from the door. As he observed the strange situation in the room, a trace of puzzlement surfaced on his wrinkled face.

"Pu Lisi, what is going on here?" The white-robed elder asked.

When the furious Pu Lisi saw the white-robed older man, the anger on his face was immediately replaced with an expression of great respect.

"Great Master Ye Qing, why have you come?" Pu Lisi spoke deferentially, and it was completely different from his previous attitude.

Ye Qing was the top herbalist in the entire Longxuan Empire. He was also the only one that Pu Lisi respected in the whole Saint Laurent Academy.

Even though Ye Qing and Pu Lisi were both Great Herbalists, there was a difference between their ranks. When Pu Lisi became a Great Herbalist twenty years ago, Ye Qing had been on that path for fifteen years. Pu Lisi was still at the initial phase of a Great Herbalist, but Ye Qing had already reached its peak. He was only a step beneath the ranking of a Grandmaster Herbalist.

Pu Lisi remained as respectful as an apprentice, and he would never show the slightest disrespect toward him.

"Great Master Ye Qing, Luo De brought a student here to cause trouble, and I was just chasing them out," Pu Lisi related to the older great master.

Ye Qing looked at Luo De and Shen Yanxiao. His soulful eyes paused for a moment before it swept across Shen Yanxiao.

"Great Master Ye Qing, that was not my intention at all. I thought that this child is very talented in herbalism and wanted to bring him here so that the great masters could have a look at him." Luo De felt even more pressured when faced with Ye Qing. Even the dean of the academy, Ouyang Huanyu, had to be courteous in front of Ye Qing.

With Ye Qing's skills and strength, the people in the entire Longxuan Empire would offer their priceless treasures to beg for a single bottle of potion from him.

The Emperor of the Longxuan Empire had personally graced his presence at the Saint Laurent Academy to invite Ye Qing to assume the position as the Imperial Family's Herbalist.

Even so, Ye Qing had rejected that invitation. He no longer cared about materialistic reputations, and he had devoted himself wholeheartedly to herbalism to break through to the level of a Grandmaster Herbalist as soon as he could. In a sense, all worldly possessions and names no longer held any meaning for him.

If Luo De was cautious and fearful in front of Pu Lisi, then one could say he had boundless admiration and reverence when he stood in front of Ye Qing.

All herbalists in the Longxuan Empire regarded Ye Qing as their ultimate goal.

"Oh?" Ye Qing smiled faintly. Unlike the aggressiveness of Pu Lisi, the smile on his face brought a relaxed and friendly vibe to the people around him.

That was probably wy Shen Yanxiao took an instant liking to that gentle older man.

Compared to Pu Lisi, he was much more worthy of one's respect.

"Not your intention? This little kid had dared to question my herbalism skills when he's merely a first-year student. Where did he find the courage to do so? Would a first-year student have a deeper knowledge of herbalism than me?" Pu Lisi sneered.

Shen Yanxiao had humiliated him, and he wanted them gone from his room as soon as possible.

Luo De did not know how to answer him. Shen Yanxiao's words were pretty hard to swallow, and the other party was a Great Herbalist.
