Jackie could not possibly refine a sixth-grade pill and had also lost the chance to prove himself through forming pill runes. Jackie had dug his own grave.
The vice treasurer could not help but prepare himself for future failure. Otherwise, he would be viciously mocked later on, and Constance’s mockery would get worse.
The vice treasurer had experienced many things in his years, but he could not take that kind of mockery.
Constance let out a cold smile and said, “It looks like you don’t think Jackie can do anything at all. I really don’t know what Heavenly Pills are thinking to accept riff-raff like that.
“An idiot like him who insists on proving how stupid he is would be a burden even if he became a sixthgrade alchemist.”
Constance seemed to be giving out advice, but the tone was notably wrong. Anyone could have sensed that. The vice treasurer’s lips twitched as he turned to look away, no longer facing Constance.
“I know what you’re trying to say, but I can’t hear anything when my mood is bad. I’d advise you to shut your mouth and look at your favored disciple.”
After that, the vice treasurer deliberately moved away from Constance. The vice treasurer would probably end up spitting out blood if he continued talking to the guy. He decided to just shut his mouth and pretend to not see anything.
“The pill has taken shape!” Grayson suddenly said.
Grayson did not even have to mention that. Rudy had seen everything. At that moment, Rudy looked like he had swallowed a fly.
Rudy had thought that Jackie was just full of hot air. Yet, a dark pill body was in the furnace in front of Jackie, floating in the middle.
Jackie’s hands were constantly forming seals as the pill’s movement constantly sped up. At the peak of the speed, the pill suddenly stopped.
Under Jackie’s serious eyes, the pill started to emit a dense smell. Jackie let out a sigh of relief as he once again started to form seals. The dense fragrance filled Jackie’s nose as he quickly gathered all that pill aura together.
One by one, golden pill runes started to form. The faint golden runes started to illuminate the air around him.
When Rudy saw that scene, there was not much he could say. Rudy had lost completely. Jackie did not just complete the second step, he had even started on the third
Even though he knew that Jackie could not finish the third step, he was still unable to contain his anger.
Grayson let out a light laugh as he looked at Rudy and said, “It looks like I’ve won. Thank you…”
Rudy took a deep breath, unable to say anything back at Grayson. He was forced to nod sincerely and replied, “Don’t worry, I’ll let you pick a sixth-grade pill later.”
Either because of Rudy keeping to his words or because they both had Jackie as a common enemy, they had seemed to set aside their earlier differences.
