A high circular platform was spiraled around the pill furnaces. That was clearly the judge’s seat.
Sitting on the high platform, the judging pill masters could clearly observe everything that was happening.
“Baili Hongzhuang, choose a seat and prepare to start refining pills.” Huan Chuyou said.

Hearing that, Baili Hongzhuang walked down the platform and randomly chose a pill furnace to sit at.

“Next, we’ll begin the first grade pill master’s examination. I will first explain the rules.” Tong Qingyuan spoke slowly.

Wei Meidai naturally already knew about the rules, but this was Baili Hongzhuang’s first time, so Tong Qingyuan had specifically said it for her to hear.

“The examination is to refine a pill randomly selected by the examination judge. You have 3 sets of materials. As long as you sucessfully refine the pill within the time limit, you’ll pass. The time limit is one hour.”

Baili Hongzhuang inwardly nodded. This examination was very fair.

Even for pill masters, refining pills always had a chance for failure. The higher the pill’s grade, the higher the chance of failure.

The reason why they had 3 sets of materials was so even if they fail, they could try again. The rate of failure was something all pill masters had to face.

Two things reflected a pill master’s strength. The first was the highest grade pill they could refine, and the second was their success rate.

It was because the failure rate was so high, that all pill masters had countless precious pill ingredients piled up.

If there wasn’t enough ingredients to practice with, there was no way to become a pill master.

“How about I draw the examination’s pill today?”

Just as Tong Qingyuan was about to draw the pill topic, Gu Cangyun suddenly interrupted.

Tong Qingyuan subconsciously looked at Baili Hongzhaung. With Gu Cangyun’s temper, he definitely wouldn’t make it advantageous for Baili Hongzhuang.

Seeing Tong Qingyuan’s gaze, Baili Hongzhaung nodded slightly. With her strength, she didn’t care about what pill Gu Cangyun chose at all.

Gu Cangyun and Wei Meidai were unexpected variables. She didn’t want to make things difficult for Tong Qingyuan.

Since Gu Cangyun wanted to do something to her, just let him come.

In any case, she was confident that the one with their face beaten would be Gu Cangyun.

Seeing Baili Hongzhaung without any complaints, Tong Qingyuan agreed, “Okay.”

Gu Cangyun took out a slip of paper from the trunk of examination pill topics and glanced at it before speaking, “Today’s pill examination topic is…. Returning Qi Pills!”

His voice dropped and Gu Cangyun seamlessly tucked the slip of paper into his sleeve.

Obviously, what was really written on the slip of paper was no longer important.

Wei Meidai’s eyes brightened when she heard the words ‘Returning Qi Pills’, her face filled with unconcealable excitement.

For the past few days, she had been practicing refining the Returning Qi Pill, and had managed to successfully refine one a few days ago.

She hadn’t thought that today’s examination topic would precisely be Returning Qi Pills. The heavens were truly on her side!

Thinking of this, Wei Meidai glanced at Baili Hongzhaung proudly. This time, she wanted to show Baili Hongzhaung the difference between them!

Baili Hongzhuang wasn’t worried at all. Returning Qi Pills were the pills she refined the most these days.

Before, to go to Luo Yun for the practical training, she had deliberately been refining a lot of Returning Qi Pills. Returning Qi Pills was her highest success rate.

Gu Cangyun’s carefully selected choice had only given her a wedding dress.

(wedding dress- like how his carefully selected choice only benefitted her)
