    Chapter 587: The Scene Was Worth The Watch

    Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation  Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

    The master was rarely seen under normal circumstances. Only when Long Siye was there, he would show up to greet him personally and invite him into the secret chamber to discuss alchemy techniques together. As for others, they were all irrelevant in the eyes of the master. Even Gu Canmo had not always been able to invite him.

    He had now, however, shown up in such a high profile. He had even engaged himself with the mysterious alchemist. The crowd felt that their trips were not in vain. It was totally worth the watch.

    Qian Lingyu was very nervous deep down. He quickly sent his messages to Gu Xijiu to explain to her a brief account of the master's life. He knew that it was time to test her real capability.

    Gu Xijiu seemed at ease as she patiently arranged the herbs in good order. A few moments later, she picked out a particular herb and placed it in her palm, "This herb doesn't smell right!"

    "What's wrong?" Jing Lanyao raised his brows.

    "The herb is not the real Feng Tianhu. Instead, it is Yun Tianhu, a herb that closely resembled its appearance. The effect of the herb was the total opposite, so it was impossible to extract the Flying Crane Pill with it! Master Jing, are you trying to test my judgment or have you mistaken it for something else?"

    The people turned their attention to Jing Lanyao, as they did not believe that he would make a mistake.

    "Good judgment." Lan Jingyao groaned as he took back the Yun Tianhu and handed her the real Feng Tianhu. Apparently, he was indeed trying to test her.

    Gu Xijiu smiled, and without making further comments, she began the alchemy.

    Jing Lanyao fixed his eyes on her every move and frowned at her occasionally.

    This pill was what he most excelled in, so he was exceedingly familiar with the process of making such pill. However, it was the first time for him to see the way Gu Xijiu made it.

    He was not worried that Gu Xijiu would play any tricks to deceive him as the ready product of the pill was extremely rare. The available quantity of such pills in the Tianju Hall was limited, and all of the pills were with him. It was impossible for the alchemist right in front of him to prepare the pill in advance.

    During the process, Gu Xijiu even tried to chat with the master, "How many finished products are you usually able to extract? How is the quality?"

    "Are you trying to compare yourself to me?" It was unclear how he felt through the tone of his voice. There were a few of his students at the scene. Honestly, every student that had been taught by the master was a little terrified by him as he was very strict with his students. One would easily get severely criticized even with the tiniest fault. They would make a detour just to avoid seeing him.

    What terrified them the most was when he stayed next to them during the process of their alchemy. His gaze could easily make their flesh creep. Very often, they would mess up their process just because of his occasional gazes. However, the mysterious alchemist behaved with perfect composure under his attentive watch throughout the whole process. She was also delighted to have a casual chit-chat with him. They were really impressed by the strength in her state of mind.

    Jing Lanyao imposed a tremendous aura that caused a sharp rise in pressure in the surrounding, strong enough to overwhelm weaker beings.

    Gu Xijiu did not seem to be intimidated by his terrifying power. Instead, she asked him smilingly, "Master, are you afraid to answer my questions?"

    Jing Lanyao did not know what to say.

    "I'm very familiar with the alchemy of this pill. There will definitely be two level-four pills in every alchemy, but it's hard to tell what would be of the rest. There could be three wasted pills, at most. If the conditions are favorable, there will occasionally be a level-six or level-five pill." He was upfront and revealed his achievements.

    Gu Xijiu let out a smile and did not comment further.
