281 I Reject! 1

 "Shen Jue, what nonsense is this?" Luo De's jaw dropped as he was shocked by her answer.

Shen Yanxiao had agreed to Pu Lisi's provocation!

Was that a joke? Even though Shen Yanxiao managed to produce an intermediate-level potion, it was still only an intermediate-level potion. The one that Pu Lisi had been making was likely to be an advanced or even an expert-level potion. In terms of difficulty, the Aura Concealment Potion probably could not even compare. Furthermore, he had done one demonstration for Shen Yanxiao.

He did not believe that Pu Lisi, in his mood then, would be so kind-hearted as to do a demonstration for Shen Yanxiao.

Even if the task was to balance the Hawthorne Flower and the Pixie Flower, it would still require one to have a high level of skills to accomplish that task.

At that time, he thought that Shen Yanxiao had been too arrogant.

Luo De was quite familiar with Shen Yanxiao's ability, and even he was not optimistic about her chances of winning, let alone any other person.

Pu Lisi sneered as he looked at Shen Yanxiao. "Sure, give it a try, if you think you have the skills to do it. If you can keep balance both the Hawthorne Grass and Pixie Flower and still retain their medicinal effects, I shall approve Luo De's recommendation and allow you to stay at the library to become my assistant!"

He truly did not believe that the young kid could use the Hanath Flower to keep the repellency effect between the two medicinal ingredients in check.

If things were that simple, then he would not have had such a headache over it.

Shen Yanxiao lifted her eyebrows, but she did not say anything else. She walked toward the table and took a potion that Pu Lisi had previously produced. The potion had the same medicinal components to the one that Pu Lisi had already used. The only difference was that the potion did not have any Hawthorne Grass of Pixie Flower in it.

Shen Yanxiao moved that potion to the side as she took a Hannath Flower from a pile of medicinal ingredients.

She did not use the Hawthorne Grass that Pu Lisi had processed into a powdery-form. Instead, she ground a few fresh Hawthorne Grass until it was as fine as powder.

Ye Qing saw how Shen Yanxiao had processed the medicinal ingredients while he stood to watch at the side. One could almost see the traces of approval in his eyes.

The way Shen Yanxiao had handled the Hawthorne Grass was perfect; it was neither too fast, nor was it too slow. She had carefully removed all redundant leaves and roots, and the remaining branches had been dried and then powdered. She had also clocked the drying time correctly, and she had managed to remove the Hawthorne Grass from the flames after its water had evaporated. It was then placed in the apparatus that one could use to grind items.

Even Ye Qing could not find a single flaw in the method that she used.

Shen Yanxiao did not know how she could have processed the medicinal ingredients so flawlessly. Her subconscious mind had told her that it was the best way to do it, almost as if there was an invisible force that had urged her to take respective steps to process those ingredients. That invisible force was not part of the knowledge that she gained from her study in herbalism. It was more like an intrinsic skill that allowed her to identify the essential elements of the Hawthorne Grass and also the parts that she should discard like chicken ribs.

Even as she dried the Hawthorne Grass, she could determine the accurate time to accomplish that based on the faint smell it emitted.

Everything was exceptionally odd, and even Shen Yanxiao did not understand the reason. She merely regarded that as an innate talent that her body had inherited from her mother.

As Pu Lisi looked at Shen Yanxiao's flawless technique, he merely snorted and did not comment on anything else.

It was not difficult to process medicinal ingredients, so that did not mean anything at all.

After Shen Yanxiao had processed the Hawthorne Grass, she placed the previous potion that she had taken on the flame to heat it.
