Elite Mages’ Academy - Chapter 625
Song Junlang continued to explain, his face a bit stern, “There are ancient genes in the bodies of the guardians. To be clear, they are the sea G.o.d Poseidon’s genes. Of course, the proportions are very low, but I can only retrieve these genes from the guardians at the moment.
“Based on your explanation, that Myth skill of yours is definitely not an ordinary ability. I’ve researched your blood, and I found some strange components in it. Because I’ve been researching the guardians all this time, I coincidentally noticed some similar aspects, so you’re actually quite lucky…
“This potion can replenish you through your genes, and can eliminate, or at least suppress the negative impacts on your lifespan. However, truthfully, the potion itself is still flawed.”
Listening to Song Junlang’s tone, Xiao Lin did not feel too strange. Since when did this man’s potions not have flaws?
However, this time, Song Junlang’s face was even more worried as he said, “I’m not sure if I should let you drink this potion. Of course, you can choose what to do yourself. I need to remind you that if anyone else drank this potion, there wouldn’t be too many effects. They would have an upset stomach at most. However, you’re different. Your body is too unique, and can resonate with the sea G.o.d’s genes.”
“I can’t predict the results, but the good news is that this resonance will only happen with a large amount of genes, so occasionally using it should not present too many problems. However, long term usage will definitely cause unpredictable effects, so my warning is the same as before. Don’t use Myth too much!”
Even though Song Junlang tried his best to look very serious, Xiao Lin ignored his verbal warnings. There was nothing he could do because if Xiao Lin thought about the various strange potions that Song Junlang had made him drink before, then the black potion was not that scary.
The black potion needed to be drunk with Lifewater, and the Logistics Department had a few bottles around. As if it was his own home, Xiao Lin walked over to the shelves and retrieved them naturally, pouring them into the black potion and mixing them together. The addition of the red-colored lifewater turned the potion even more sticky and malodorous.
Xiao Lin could not help but feel helpless since he was already prepared to drink the potion, even if it was possibly poison. No matter what potion Song Junlang made, it seemed like they all shared one thing in common, which was that the smell would often be worse than what a regular person could handle.
Clenching his teeth, Xiao Lin pinched his nose and downed the potion, swallowing it quickly. After a few seconds of silence, he started to feel an intense heat coming from his stomach, and the temperature in his body began to rapidly rise.
The beaker in Xiao Lin’s hand had already dropped to the floor as he leaned against the table to steady his swaying body. Large beads of sweat started to fall from his forehead and it quickly drenched both his face and his back. His breath started to get erratic and he looked like he had just gone through an intense battle and used up all his strength.
“Is this a normal reaction?” Xiao Lin clenched his teeth and asked.
Song Junlang had been taking notes when he raised his head at Xiao Lin’s question. Thinking about it, he said, “Don’t worry. There’s no problem. This means that the gene repairing potion has seeped into your body. Yes, that should be it.”
“Should be?” Xiao Lin raised his tone.
“You’re the first test subject after all. There have never been any prior examples, so even I can’t give you an accurate answer. Ignoring that, how do you feel right now?” Song Junlang was more concerned about his notes.
Xiao Lin was speechless.
Even though he was already used to this, it did not stop Xiao Lin from having the urge to shout at Song Junlang. However, he opened his mouth, but his voice was stuck in his throat, unable to come out. That was right, he had lost his ability to speak. The pain had exceeded that of any other potion, and it was like someone was changing his bones. The pain could be felt deep in every bone of his, but Xiao Lin’s consciousness remained awake, unable to even faint.
Xiao Lin’s mind felt like mush at that moment, and countless bits of information were constantly rushing in and quickly going out.
In his mind, the guardian appeared, which was that disgusting and highly dangerous squid. Xiao Lin even felt like he was being tightly wrapped around by the squid, and the feeling made him almost puke on the spot. Thankfully, the feeling only lasted for a few seconds before it faded. After that, it was the sea G.o.d Poseidon, but it was different from the Poseidon he met in the monthly examination.
It was possibly due to his muddled consciousness, but what flashed in his mind was an extremely young Poseidon. He could not see the man’s general features, and only saw a muddled silhouette. Strangely, enough, however, his mind clearly understood that it was Poseidon.
Xiao Lin could not think of anything, and the image quickly disappeared. After that, it was countless figures that looked like Poseidon. The size was very similar, but he still could not tell the details.
After that, all the figures disappeared, and what appeared was a brightly burning star. Following that was a galaxy full of stars, and then the vast universe…
The dreamlike memories slowly started to recede like the tide. At that moment, the sky was already dark, and the panting Xiao Lin had long been brought to lie down on the sofa by Song Junlang. There was no expression on his face, and he just stared at the ceiling, either in thought or just in a daze.
He was in silence for almost fifteen minutes before Xiao Lin let out a cry and started to violently vomit. The vomit was mildly black, and Xiao Lin did not know what it was. It was only after a few minutes did he stop. Xiao Lin listlessly accepted the water that Song Junlang gave him, and gulped it down.
Song Junlang was not in a hurry to ask any questions, and merely sat quietly next to the sofa. After that, there was a long silence. It was only when Xiao Lin returned the gla.s.s did Xiao Lin’s expression recover to his normal look.
Xiao Lin let out a long sigh and still said powerlessly and with a voice full of uncertainty, “I-I feel like I had a nightmare. However, it’s strange. I know I did not fall asleep, and could even clearly feel anything around me.”
“Can you tell me what you saw?” Song Junlang’s tone was calm. There was no tone of surprise, as if everything had been within expectations.
“I don’t know.”
What followed was another long period of silence.
