Chapter 98

“Hahaha… I guess those fools wouldn't even dream of Jarrosus sending a level-twelve Magic Shooter!” Gerian guffawed . “I'd like to see who can take home the first place this time!”

“You're sure the other guilds have no Magic Shooters under the age of 25?”

“Do you think everyone's a freak like you? b.l.o.o.d.y h.e.l.l, you're only 20 but you've dared to break through to the realm of a Magic Shooter . Why didn't G.o.d just strike you with lightning, you demon…” After Gerian had finished his indignant nagging, the expression on his face changed again, revealing a smile as if his plot had already succeeded . At this time, the President looked like a big fat fox that had just stolen a chicken . “Besides, it was written clearly in the official letter . This learning opportunity is only for mages above level-seven . Do you see it… Only for mages above level-seven . Magic Shooter? Just stay home and play with yourself! Why do you think I want you to cheat?”

“…” Lin Li was at a loss whether to cry or to laugh . The old fellow had made a point of cheating .

“Do a good job and get the first place at the trial . I'd like to see who still dares to look down on the Jarrosus Guild of Magic in the future!” The guild being at a low ebb in the past 20 years had always rankled Gerian . This time, he finally had the chance to hold his head high . Excitement was all over his chubby face .

During the past month in the Emerald Tower, Lin Li could see clearly how much effort this seemingly arrogant old fellow had spent on the Guild of Magic . To be frank, Lin Li was very willing to do something for him . It was probably due to his character—Lin Li was not used to giving any steadfast guarantees . He just nodded . “I'll try my best . ”

“Mm . ”

Lin Li's promise to try his best had immediately calmed Gerian's mind . He knew the kid's character too well—he never promised easily, but as long as he had made a promise, he'd fulfill that promise well above expectation . From the Arcane Magic Potion in the beginning to the Sobriety Potion, then to the duel at the Daylight Square—a level-twelve Magic Shooter had made Cromwell, who was level-fourteen, an invalid .

“Take these few days to get ready . You'll leave for Alanna in three days' time . ”

For the next two days, Lin Li was extremely busy .

After the Alanna trip was set, he suddenly realized that he still had a lot to do .

The 40 bottles of Wild Elixir seemed to have silenced the Shadow's Nest . At least there had been little movement in the Demon Fall Valley in the recent days . However, everyone from Guild of Magic did not take it lightly . The two had been long-time rivals; no one understood the Shadow's Nest better than the Guild of Magic . The rate of expansion of this particular force was like a plague . No one knew when they would suddenly exert their power .

In order to leave in peace, Lin Li had been cooped up in the potion lab for the past two days .

The lab was shrouded in a white mist; a strong medicinal smell permeated it . Amidst this, various kinds of potions were concocted, the majority being the Recovery Potion and the Mana Potion . These were two of the lowest-level potions; they had the most extensive use in treatment of minor injuries—one for the treatment of minor injuries and the other for the restoration of the mana . In a fierce battle, these two potions might be able to save many lives even if there was only one small bottle of each .

In addition, he had concocted ten bottles of Awakening Potion in one breath . It was specially prepared for Gerian . The old fellow was an Archmage, which meant there was no use in making him drink the Mana Potion . It might take two bottles of Mana Potion to make up for the consumption of a level-fifteen magic spell…

As for the other miscellaneous items such as the Sobriety Potion, the Detoxification Antidote, and the Elixir of Wisdom… He had concocted plenty of them each . Anyhow, in these two days, Lin Li did not even step out of the potion lab once . When he was tired, he'd sleep for a while, and then continue when he woke up . Even the meals were sent to the potion lab by one of the guys .

Perhaps only a pharmaceutics guru could do something like this .

Other than a near-demonic figure like Lin Li, other pharmaceutics masters would probably be exhausted to death if they were to do what Lin Li did . There seemed to be only a thin line between a pharmaceutics guru and a master, but in fact, the distance was vaster than ever .

It was not until the morning of the third day that Lin Li came out of the potion lab, both weary and drowsy .

Just as he opened the door of the potion lab, he saw Gerian, who was keeping watch outside .

Probably because of the long wait, Gerian was leaning against the wall and almost falling asleep . There was some tiredness on his chubby face and his yawns came consecutively . But when he heard the sound of Lin Li opening the door, he immediately opened his eyes .

This time, instead of looking into the potion lab, Gerian asked with concern, “Why did it take so long this time?”

The old fellow's concerned eyes warmed Lin Li's heart . He gave a weak smile . “This time, I'm going to be away for three months . I want to leave more things for the guild . ”

“d.a.m.n, you've stayed in for more than two days . Do you still want your life… How can your body stand it this way?”

Gerian kept on nagging, but Lin Li felt extremely warm as the words went in his ears . “Go in and take a look, I've prepared ten Awakening Potions for you . In addition, there are ten Iron s.h.i.+eld Potions, which should last for three months if used wisely . As for the rest, you can ask someone to take them to the Demon Fall Valley and give them to Kevin . ”

“Mhm, mhm…” Gerian nodded his head, then urged him to take a rest .

“Then I'll go take a nap first . ”

Lin Li was really worn out . He had concocted about 300 bottles of potions in less than three days . Even a pharmaceutics guru who was at the peak of his profession would have been both mentally and physically exhausted .

He walked into the guild's hall drowsily . He was about to return to his bedroom to sleep when he heard a pleasant voice coming from the steps of the Emerald Tower .

“Mage Felic!”

Lin Li turned around with some surprise and saw Sean's tanned face .

Apart from Sean, his father, who had just recovered from a serious injury, also came . The middle-aged man was just recovering, so he still looked rather weak . There was less color on his equally tanned face . The honest young man was carefully supporting him . The two men just stood on the steps, looking in the direction of the guild hall .

“Mr Poliro, why are you here? Didn't I tell you that the venom in your body has just been cleared and you're still very weak? You should stay in bed these few days and rest; don't wander around at will . Why did you…” Lin Li hurried to welcome them in . He carefully helped the middle-aged man into the guild hall, then found a chair for him to sit down .

“Sean, what's the matter with you?” After all this, Lin Li turned back and stared at the honest young man; his expression was rather stern . “Your father was just recovering, why not make him stay in bed?”

Sean looked a little sorry . He opened his mouth to explain, but when the words came to his mouth, they turned into an apology . “Sorry… Mage Felic…”

“Don't blame him, Mage Felic . I wanted to come on my own…” The middle-aged man's voice was hoa.r.s.e and weak, and he was speaking slowly . “I'm here this time to ask you for something…”

“Please speak . ”

“Sean has been sensible since young . He has been running around with me for many years, but has not known better days all these years . I, as his father, have no ability to find a promising career for my son . So, I'd like to ask you, would you consider making Sean your attendant?” The middle-aged man gazed at his son with much warmth and love in his eyes .

The gaze reminded Lin Li of his father and of McGrenn, who had pa.s.sed away .

To be honest, he was hesitant .

In a world of sword and magic, many mages had their own attendants . For example, Old Grimm, who had been to the Guild of Magic, had a legendary-level warrior attendant . This was not merely a subordinate relations.h.i.+p; in many cases, it also meant a responsibility .

Lin Li was not someone who liked to take responsibility . So, when Sean had made this request the other day, Lin Li did not agree immediately, making him go home and discuss it with his father .

Lin Li thought that it was just Sean's own idea; the middle-aged man might not necessarily consent to it .

But, in the end…

The middle-aged man not only agreed with Sean's idea, he even dragged his sick body to the Guild of Magic to persuade Lin Li .

Facing a father who hoped for his son to have a brighter future, Lin Li couldn't bring himself to reject him .

The expectant expression on the middle-aged man's face constantly reminded Lin Li of his father . When he had just graduated from school, his father ran all over the place, putting in good words for Lin Li as he tried to seek a relations.h.i.+p for Lin Li's own good . The expression on his face was exactly the same as that of the middle-aged man in front of him…

“I beg you, Mage Felic . ”

“Please let me consider….

“Sean, you see if this is alright…” Lin Li hesitated for a moment amidst their antic.i.p.ation, and then told the honest young man, “I don't need an attendant yet, but there's one thing that I really need your help in, so I'm going to hire you for three months first . As far as the remuneration is concerned… What do you think of 5,000 gold coins a month?”.

“5,000 gold coins!” The middle-aged man gave a start and quickly declined, “This is no good, Mage Felic . That will never do . 5,000 gold coins is too much . You saved my life . If you need any help, just order Sean to do it . How can we make you spend so much money?”.
