17 The Imbecile Was a Super Genius Part 3
Su Luo's spiritual energy surpassed the cyan crystal prism effortlessly...
Even though the speed with which the prisms filled had slowed down, it didn't seem to give any indication of stopping.
Nangong Liuyun stared attentively at the crystal prism and the blue spiritual energy steadily climbing within it.
His dark eyes glowed in thought.
Lighting up the blue crystal prism indicated that Su Luo's inherent spiritual power was already awe-inspiring. Only a small amount of people in the entire continent possessed spiritual energy that could reach the blue crystal prism.
Nonetheless... Nangong Liuyun was rendered speechless when he saw her spiritual energy, like a mischievous child, despite being slow, it kept crawling toward the top of the blue crystal prism, and then –
To Nangong Liuyun's great surprise, it lit up the purple crystal prism.
Purple crystal prism -- The number of people who had reached it in the history of East Hill could be counted on one hand. It was hard to believe that a girl like Su Luo could have purple spiritual energy!
For over ten years, she had been bullied, tormented, and neglected as a half-wit fool with zero talent. What an outrageous abuse and waste of a natural gift!
As he realized that, Nangong Liuyun couldn't help but swear under his breath, even with as polite and polished as he was.
What on earth happened in the past? Why had this girl been misidentified as an idiot when she really had such phenomenal talent? He had to get to the bottom of this matter. A cold look flashed across Nangong Liuyun's eyes.
Ten minutes passed, then thirty, then an hour... Su Luo's spiritual power was like rolling ocean waves, constant and unbroken. After inputting spiritual energy for such a long time, there wasn't even a hint of weariness on her face.
The natural talent and physical strength and ability determined everything for a person in this martial world. Each one of these seven colors was a representation and prediction of a person's potential achievement in the future.
The purple color was split into the three categories of top-grade, middle-grade, and low-grade.
As time went by, Su Luo's purple spiritual energy ascended, slowly but surely, surpassing the low-grade, arriving at the middle-grade, and eventually ending up at...
Nangong Liuyun's previously calm face had frozen in astonishment.
Su Luo had already gone way beyond his expectations when she reached the blue crystal prism. But she ended up at the top-grade purple crystal in the end. It was almost inconceivable and terrifying how great her talent was.
Nevertheless... that purple spiritual energy was still creeping up eerily. Without a sound, it was moving slightly faster than an ant could crawl, but the fact remained that it did not stop for even a second.
It was close, so close to the top –
However, something dramatic happened just then!
Just as the last prism was about to become full, without warning, the seven glowing crystal prisms blacked out in an instant. All the colors disappeared.
The rainbow-hued crystal prisms returned to their original forms, icy and transparent, without a hint of color.
Su Luo suddenly felt a sweet taste on her tongue. A line of blood trickled down from the corner of her mouth.
"Luoluo!" Like a plume of white smoke shooting through the air, Nangong Liuyun almost teleported himself next to Su Luo. Holding Su Luo in his arms, he looked quite uneasy.
"I'm fine," Su Luo leaned on his chest and feebly shook her head. "What happened just now? What did my test results say? Am I still an idiot?"
In the end, she did care about her talent.
A mischievous smile appeared on Nangong Liuyun's face. He tapped gently on her smooth forehead and said in a low voice, "If you're an idiot, all the other people in the world would be boneheads."
"So... I'm not an idiot anymore?" Su Luo felt relaxed and invigorated at the same time. Eyes glowing, she gazed at Nangong Liuyun expectantly.
"Ugh." Nangong Liuyun hadn't figured out how to tell Su Luo on the spot about what happened. "To tell you the truth, I think something was wrong with this crystal ball..."
