"Of course." The middle-aged man could be considered to be appreciative of Hua Ruge, but he had nothing to do anyways, so he could watch the show.
Hua Ruge thanked him and said: "Put your hands on that rock."
Lan Bing'er timidly said, "But I'm not ?"
Hua Ruge shook his head and gave her a firm look before the word "aristocracy" left his mouth.
Lan Bing'er did not want to disappoint her, so he bit his lips, closed his eyes and placed his hand on the testing stone.
Hua Ruge watched with rapt attention.
Very quickly, the white stone flashed with a faint white light. On the stone, a few words were displayed: 'Spirit Root Level Three'.
The middle-aged man shook his head. There were nine levels of spiritual roots, and the higher the talent, the better. Because Royal College was only open to the nobility, the standard for recruiting students was a little low, but it was still above the fourth level.
"The same person's difference is really huge." The middle-aged man sighed, "You have to understand that in the past, there was a female who was a genius of the eighth rank."
Level six and above were considered geniuses. Level seven was rare; level eight was extremely rare. level nine had never appeared in the mainland. No one knew how heaven-defying it was.
Hua Ruge frowned, she was not satisfied with the results of the test, she felt that the heavens were too unfair with this child.
Lan Bing'er however, thought that his performance was not good. She lowered her head and whispered, "Big Brother, did I disappoint you?"
She was on the verge of tears.
Hua Ruge comforted her and patted her head, then took a testing stone and said: "Come, try to focus your attention on this."
The Essence Testing Stone was a spiritual power testing stone, and because of the rarity of the material, it was extremely small, only the size of Hua Ruge's palm.
After Lan Bing'er heard this, he closed his eyes and focused his thoughts.
Therefore, the rock slowly reacted and lit up with a golden light.
Spiritual energy rank 3!
Hua Ruge waited for the change in the words on the stone. When it reached five, she was already very happy, but at six, she became surprised. At seven, her eyes were already wide open, but she didn't know what to say.
The middle-aged man had a similar expression. It had to be said that Spirit power was even harder to obtain than Spirit Roots, with a level 7 Spirit power, not only would he be able to become a Soul Master alchemist, it was more than enough.
"Big brother ?" Lan Bing'er didn't know what happened, but he nervously tugged at the corner of his clothes.
"That little girl is quite lucky." Hua Ruge laughed out loud and pinched her face.
Seeing her smile, Lan Bing'er heaved a sigh of relief, thinking that it was good that he did not disappoint the Young Master.
"Hurry up and get this child to register. He will definitely be selected." The middle-aged man said excitedly.
Lan Bing'er was confused, but Hua Ruge thanked him politely and left with Lan Bing'er.
After leaving the great hall, Hua Ruge said to Lan Bing'er as he walked toward the dorms he had arranged for himself, "You saw it just now, you are a very talented person. If you want to go to the academy to learn, I can send you there."
Lan Bing'er's face tensed up, but he kept on shaking his head.
Hua Ruge knew that this child was treating her as a lifesaver, and could only say: "If you don't want to leave, then stay. I won't chase you away, but if you think about it again, you will only have one day to register tomorrow."
"I'm not leaving." Lan Bing'er said stubbornly, his attitude never wavering from start to finish.
Hua Ruge knew that she was afraid of being bullied, so he caressed her head and sighed: "Poor child."
Lan Bing'er lowered his head with a face full of meekness.
The dormitory was similar to a courtyard. Each courtyard had four rooms, and each room had two rooms for the students and their servants to use. The standard was to bring a servant with each person.
Hua Ruge was located to the north. It was relatively quiet, and the green-colored mud-tiled houses were neat and tidy. There was a plot of land in front of the houses where flowers and plants could be grown. There was a well in the courtyard.
"It's good to be here." Lan Bing'er wandered around in the simple room that was decorated while excitedly asking: "Young Master, are we going to live here from now on?"
Hua Ruge raised his head upon hearing her question, seeing that she was currently making a single bed, he raised his head and said: "If you want to stay here, I can take the one outside."
Lan Bing'er's face flushed red, she said bashfully: "Young Master, I didn't mean it that way, I, I ?"
She was talking about living in this room and making the bed after seeing the creases in the bed, not sleeping in it.
"It's good that you're not. Then I'll sleep inside, while you sleep outside." Hua Ruge said casually.
At this moment, all of her attention was on the room. She could feel that there was definitely a formation outside the house, because the spiritual energy and elemental energy inside was much richer than outside.
To be able to increase one's cultivation speed in such an environment, it was no exaggeration to say that the resources here were good.
For the entire afternoon, Hua Ruge meditated on the bed, while he cleaned both the inside and the outside.
There was the sound of porcelain falling to the ground outside, and then she heard Lan Bing'er's timid apology.
Hua Ruge frowned, but because the spirit energy in her body had not finished one full week, she was unable to stand up immediately. She kept her spirit space peaceful, and after a while, she slowly exhaled, and got off her bed and left the room.
When she went out, it was already night. The three houses around her were lit up by candles, and the courtyard was filled with servants moving daily necessities.
Storage rings were extremely rare. It was already good enough for a top aristocrat family to have one, and it was also in the hands of the family head. Very few disciples were able to obtain one, so they could only move it back and forth.
At this moment, there were a few steps in front of Lan Bing'er, and on the ground in front of her feet was a broken big vase. It seemed that these people were moving around, and she accidentally broke them while she was cleaning.
However, Lan Bing'er was not as troubled as she had expected, and only heard the man in embroidered clothes consoling her: It's just a decoration, it will save me a lot of time, it's fine.
This man's posture was gentle, gentle as jade, and his eyes were clear. He was the man who stood beside Hua Ruyue in the morning.
Lan Bing'er stood in place a little stiffly. It was likely that he had never seen such a person before, and did not dare to answer.
"Since the Fifth Prince said it's alright, then forgive me for not paying." Hua Ruge said as he walked out of the room, his indifferent voice carrying a sense of distance.
She didn't like people who were too close to the Hua family.
Lan Bing'er looked at Hua Ruge with an apologetic gaze, and Hua Ruge gave her a peaceful smile.
"Little brother, do you know my identity?" Tuoba Yu asked curiously.
"Only the people of the royal family can cause the Hua family to be worried, and out of the nine dragons, only the fourth prince and the fifth prince are around the same age as you. The fourth prince has just gone to the border to train, so the only one left is you, the fifth prince."
Hua Ruge said, he stood firmly in front of him, without any expression on his face, as though it was an extremely simple matter.
