Nangong Liuyun didn't know what went wrong either. He patted Su Luo's head gently and said, "Relax. You're definitely a genius among geniuses. No one can deny that. But the process of proving it may be a little difficult. Even so, you have already waited ten years. You won't mind a few more days, will you?"
"Mmm?" Su Luo stared at him, wide-eyed. "Are you saying that it's out of the ordinary for the lights to go out as abruptly as mine did?"
Nangong Liuyun looked at her with sympathy and nodded his head somberly.
Dejected, Su Luo collapsed on the floor. She held her head in her hands and sobbed woefully. Why was she doomed with misfortune?
"I'll tell you a piece of good news." Nangong Liuyun couldn't bear seeing her so distraught. He moved close to her face with a mysterious and playful smile.
"Spit it out." Su Luo was always straightforward.
"You do have an exceptionally powerful talent. Did you see the radiance shining around you just earlier? Do you remember what color it was?"
"Green with a tinge of orange?" Su Luo was not entirely sure.
Nangong Liuyun rubbed Su Luo's head as if he was petting a puppy. Without realizing it himself, a tender look appeared on his face. " Silly girl, how can you not know that green represents Wood and orange represents Fire?"
"Are you saying..."
"Correct. You possess two types of elements. Wood and Fire." A look of admiration shone in Nangong Liuyun's eyes as he said, "What a lucky gift you have. Wood and Fire."
"What do you look so jealous for?" Su Luo asked in surprise. She had heard from Lvluo that the famed Prince Jin His Highness was triple-talented, as in he was able to practice with three elements. Why would he be admiring her for having talents of only two elements?
"What a silly girl who doesn't understand and appreciate her own fortune." Nangong Liuyun helped Su Luo get up and sit on the soft chair nearby. He answered her question, saying, "Double-talents would not be so impressive if it were with any other elements. But do you know what it means when the Wood element and the Fire element are possessed by the same person?"
"What?" Su Luo had a vacant look. She indeed knew almost nothing about the system of this martial world.
"The Wood element and the Fire element appearing together represents the birth of an apothecary. Girl, do you know about apothecaries?" Su Luo's perplexed look seemed extra adorable to Nangong Liuyun. He caressed the young girl's pink cheek surreptitiously.
Su Luo threw him an angry look and said impassively, "Please explain."
Nangong Liuyun chuckled lightly. "There are only a small number of people who possess elemental talent. To be an apothecary demands exacting conditions of being Wood-Fire double-talented. Therefore, apothecaries have always been scarce on the continent, and they enjoy a very high social status as a result. Let's take you as an example. If your father knows about your talent, he will most definitely try to please you like a brown-nosing servant. Other people wouldn't dare to utter a harsh word at you, let alone bully you."
"Apothecaries are that useful?" Su Luo asked carefully, suddenly looking up.
"Of course. Have you heard of Breakthrough Pills? Just one pill can help people who have reached their limits to break the restraint of their talents. That being said, do you still think apothecaries are inconsequential? Are you feeling better now?"
"But..." Su Luo looked at her hands, then shifted her eyes to the bright and glittering crystal prisms. Her spiritual power was truly mysterious.
"Wait for me for three days." Nangong Liuyun's face was uncharacteristically solemn. His inky pupils were glistening like dark obsidian. "I will let you know the answer in three days."
It seemed as though it would be necessary to take a trip to Luoxia Peak. A complicated look flashed across Nangong Liuyun's eyes.
