Rubik's Cube of Heavens - Chapter 69
Coven was slapped by Snape to the point that he shrunk his neck. Looking at the other person’s unhappy face, Coven couldn’t help but spit out the tip of his tongue.
In the past two months, Coven had already become familiar with Snape. Although the other party always had a stern face, he was a very responsible person, a little cold but hot inside.
At this time, Snape’s action was like physical punishment. Coven did not take it to heart. After all, he also reacted at this time. He was wrong.
“Did you go to potion class for nothing?” At this time, Snape opened his mouth and continued to stare at Coven. He asked in a flat tone, “Now tell me, what is this Potion?”
“Sleeping Draught*, professor, also called the Draught of Living-Death.*” Coven replied with a guilty conscience.
“What about its function and source?” Snape continued to stare at Coven.
“It’s Potion who makes people sleep peacefully. There is a summary of Potion in the first-grade Potion textbook.”
[*TL Note: The Sleeping Draught also known as the Sleeping Potion, was a potion that caused the drinker to fall almost instantaneously into a deep but temporary sleep. Its usual ingredients included Flobberworm Mucus, lavender, Valerian sprigs, and Standard Ingredient. When brewed correctly, the potion should have turned a dark purple colour.]
[*TL Note: the Draught of Living Death was much more powerful, long-lasting, and difficult to brew than a standard Sleeping Draught. The Draught of Living Death brings upon its drinker a very powerful sleep that can last indefinitely. This draught is very dangerous if not used with caution]
“Then why did you hide just now?” Snape raised his hand again and slapped the paper in his hand on the back of Coven’s head.
“I’m sorry, Professor.” Coven smiled awkwardly. “I have only read the introduction of the book and have never seen the real substance of the potion. You just said it was ‘Magic Potion’. I couldn’t react in time.”
Snape snorted and accepted Coven’s explanation.
“Professor.” Seeing this, Coven crawled. “Can you teach me how to brew this potion? There is only Potion in the first-grade textbooks and no configuration method.”
“This is a course that only sixth-year students have to learn,” Snape said coldly as he packed up the medicine. “You can first get ‘O’ from me during the final exam.”
“But professor…” Coven blinked innocently. “In the past few months, I have perfectly configured all the Potion in the first-grade course in front of you.”
Snape’s hands paused, and the corners of his eyes twitched imperceptibly.
Coven was right. In the past few months, Coven would go to Snape’s office to ask about Potion’s perfect configuration after each class of Potion ended.
Every time, Coven would inscribe a Perfect Potion after Snape’s demonstration.
Now, Coven had completely mastered all the Potion in the first-grade textbooks.
At this time, after listening to Coven’s words, Snape could not help but turn his head and stare at Coven coldly for a while before continuing his actions.
At the same time, Snape said in a flat tone, “It’s too early for you to skip five years. You should find a textbook first.”
After that, Snape also packed up Potion, no longer paying attention to Coven, and directly stepped out of the practice room.
When the footsteps went away, Coven chuckled and whispered in a low voice, “Damn tsundere…”
After releasing a few spells, Coven tidied up the practice room and walked out while thinking, “Where can I get a sixth-grade textbook? Which senior can I borrow from?”
Just as he thought of this, Coven suddenly stopped and turned to look at the left side of the door.
There, a somewhat old cabinet was standing there.
“Speaking of which…” Coven turned around and walked towards the wooden cabinet while muttering in a low voice, “All along, I haven’t seen what’s going on in this cabinet.”
After saying that, Coven also came to the front of the wooden cabinet and opened the cabinet door.
Inside the cabinet, there was a lonely book with a tattered and rolled-up cover.
“There’s a book?” Coven was slightly stunned. He reached out and took the book out of the cabinet. Then, he was stunned again because the cover of the book had the words ‘Advanced – Potion Making’ written on it.
“Is there such a coincidence?” Coven tilted his head with a stunned expression. Then, he raised his hand and slapped the book hard, shaking off a pile of dust.
Opening the cover of the book…
On the blank page of the first page, there were three lines of handwriting:
The third line of words triggered the keyword, and the relevant memory of the ‘Half-Blood Prince’ instantly appeared in Coven’s mind.
After the memory was reset, Coven couldn’t help but feel as if he had obtained a treasure, and without caring about anything else, he immediately gently opened the book and began to read it from the beginning.
There were a lot of notes and notes in the book. Coven eagerly absorbed the knowledge in the whole book. At the same time, he secretly thought that it was indeed Snape’s notebook. The other party had started to reform and perfect the configuration method of the traditional Potion in his school days…
As Coven continued to read, he found that there were not only notes about Potion’s configuration in the book, but also six spells that he had never learned before. They were ‘The Divine Edge Shadowless’,’The Golden Clock Hanging upside down’,’Shut Ear Listening’, and the ‘Backcurse’ of these three spells.
It was not until the last page was turned over and the ‘cheat’ had completely memorized all the content that Coven breathed a sigh of relief in satisfaction.
After thinking for a while, he put the book back into the wooden cabinet because the information in the memory showed that this book would help the protagonist of this world, Harry Potter, to overcome many difficulties in the future.
Coven felt that it was better not to ruin the protagonist’s adventure. Anyway, he had already memorized the contents of the book.
Looking at the dark sky outside, Coven secretly thought that it was bad. He had been reading for such a long time without knowing it. It was probably time for dinner.
Without delay, Coven immediately trotted towards the auditorium.
However, in the end, he was a step too late. When Coven arrived at the auditorium, he saw the scene of all the leftovers disappearing from the table.
“Alright…” Coven lowered his shoulders weakly and followed the people who had returned to their dormitories and left the auditorium.
Along the way, Coven continued to recall the contents of the book. At the same time, because he was very interested in Potion’s studies, an idea suddenly emerged in his heart.
This is the magic world, most things can be done by magic, so can you make some magic equipment to test the medicinal properties of herbs?
For example, improving the existing scale, weighing herbs was not only weighing herbs but also testing how much medicinal properties the herbs contained.
Also, the current magic world crucible has not controlled the temperature change function, and can only be manually controlled by the person who configured Potion.
‘Then what if a crucible that can be set in advance and then automatically control the temperature change?’
Finally, add one that can also be set in advance, and then according to the set of automatic stirring rod…
The potion testing device can get rid of Snape’s intuition and accurately measure the herb medicinal properties that Potion needs.
The automatic crucible can be controlled according to Snape’s standards, and the stirring rod can be stirred according to Snape’s standards.
‘In this way, wouldn’t perfect Potion’s production be easy?’
