The next morning, Shen Yanxiao made her way toward the Herbalist Divisions library.
With the assistance of the teachers there, she took the elevator to the 95th floor, where Ye Qings room was located.
Shen Yanxiao noticed the differences the moment she stepped out of the elevator.
The 90th floor had three to four rooms, and Pu Lisi occupied one of them.
However, the 95th floor was an entire room of its own, and it was solely for Ye Qings use.
It was easy to see the differences between Ye Qing and Pu Lisi from the disparity in how the academy treated them.
Shen Yanxiao left the elevator without making a noise.
She smelled a faint fragrance, but there was a hint of blood in it.
It was similar to what she had detected in Pu Lisis room the day before that, but it was somehow thicker.
Shen Yanxiao followed the scent, and it brought him to a rather important space on the 95th floor.
Ye Qing stood in front of a huge table as he focused on the potion in his hands.
Shen Yanxiao made her approach silently as she did not want to interrupt Ye Qings work.
She stood for two hours before Ye Qing finally noticed her presence.
He was startled when he realized that Shen Yanxiao stood at his side.
“Oh, youre here! How long have you been here” When Ye Qing was in the process of mixing his potion, he required absolute silence for his full concentration.
Therefore, he did not notice anything was amiss with his surroundings.
“Around two hours.
I noticed that you were working, and so I did not want to interrupt you.” Shen Yanxiao was also an herbalist, and she knew that she would not want to be interrupted while she was working on a potion.
Thus, she did not say anything to announce her arrival.
She had used that period to focus her attention on Ye Qings process.
When she saw the medicinal ingredients and the half-completed potion on the table, Shen Yanxiao deduced that Ye Qing was busy with the Blood Banquet Potion.
When he mixed the medicinal ingredients into the potion, he had looked serious when he did that.
Nevertheless, the repulsion effect had appeared a few times.
He had no choice but to start all over again.
Even so, Shen Yanxiao could tell that Ye Qing was very precise when he mixed the medicinal ingredients and when he processed the potion.
She knew that her abilities then could not even begin to compare with Ye Qings standard.
That was what one would expect from the top herbalist, who was only one level below a Grandmaster Herbalist.
Shen Yanxiaos silent waiting period had won Ye Qings impression of her.
From her attitude toward Pu Lisi, he had thought that she would be an arrogant and unruly student.
He did not expect that she could wait so calmly for an extended period.
Ye Qing knew what he should change his impression of Shen Yanxiao.
“Since youre here now, you can help me with the process of some of the medicinal ingredients.” Ye Qing had seen Shen Yanxiaos skills, and he was confident that she would be able to cope with those basic ingredients.
Ye Qing decided to deal with those higher-grade ingredients personally.
Shen Yanxiao followed Ye Qings instructions wordlessly, and she carefully processed a batch of medicinal ingredients.
Ye Qing would give her pointers from time to time, and Shen Yanxiao realized that her skills had improved significantly.
While Shen Yanxiao processed the ingredients, she would also pay attention to Ye Qing, who had his hands full with the Blood Banquet Potion.
Even though Ye Qing was at the peak-level of a Great Herbalist, he was still careful and attentive about his process.
However, he still found it difficult to progress past two-thirds of the entire process.
Shen Yanxiao had suspected that Ouyang Huanyu stalled the progress of the Blood Banquet Potion deliberately.
It was not until she witnessed the difficulty of Ye Qings process that she realized Ouyang Huanyu was not as despicable as she had expected.
