In the middle of the Medicinal Mountain.
Ye Xiao’s figure meandered through the mountains and fields.
Coincidentally, he revered a reclusive old man as his teacher.
Not only had he studied the ancient secret book “Danjing”, but he had also developed the skills of smelling scents and collecting herbs.
Just by looking through the aura in the air, he could find the herbs he needed!
“Seven Absolute Flowers, Thousand-Leaf Grass, Thousand-Year Withered Root” …… Just one more Fire Spirit Fruit left!”
He had decided this time that he would definitely trample Su Shi under his feet, so the rank of the pill to be refined was also high.
The seventh-grade elixir, Jie Yu Pill!
He himself was a sixth-grade pill refiner, which was truly boundary-defying.
But Ye Xiao just had an inexplicable sense of confidence.
Believing that he would be able to succeed!
“I found it!”
He saw a flaming red spirit fruit on the tree ahead, emitting a fiery aura like fire.
Ye Xiao was overjoyed and quickly stepped forward, carefully plucking it out.
“Haha, even heavens are helping me. The last spirit material is also complete!”
“As long as I concot the Jie Yu Pill, absolutely no one can surpass me!”
Just when Ye Xiao couldn’t wait to go back to refining the pill, his afterimage suddenly glanced at two figures.
“It’s them ……”
His eyes lit up and a plan appeared in his mind.
Zhan Qingchen and Chen Qingluan walked the mountains in pairs, and both of them had accumulated quite a lot of spirit materials.
They came from famous backgrounds.
One of them is the Imperial Censor of the Demon Extermination Division, and the other is the Chief Disciple of Tianji Pavilion, receiving the top line inheritance.
As for alchemy, although they were not proficient, they were considered the best among the younger generation.
As Zhan Qingchen searched for spiritual materials, she secretly thought to herself.
I don’t know if Su Shi will be able to concoct pills …… Well, I have to find some more spirit materials, if the pill doesn’t have enough quality, I can still help him concoct one too.
She was well aware that the thunder voice only wanted high-level pills on order, and did not require one to refine them on their own.
Could it be a bug?
At that moment, she glanced at Chen Qingluan, only to see the other party grabbing a large handful of herbs in her hand.
“Qingluan, why are you taking a double portion of each spirit herb?”
Chen Qingluan’s eyes fluttered and she said somewhat unnaturally, “What if the concoct fails? There’s no harm in preparing more.”
Zhan Qingchen nodded, “That makes sense, you are indeed wise, then I will also take a little more.”
The two of them, “each with their own agenda”, started picking herbs in silence.
“Chief Zhan, Imperial Censor Chen!”
Hearing the voices, they saw a young man walking quickly towards them.
Looking at those two stunning faces, Ye Xiao could not help but marvel in his heart.
There really were amazing beauties on earth!
Zhan Qingchen’s brows furrowed slightly as she quietly took a few steps back.
Ye Xiao did not notice and said as he cupped his hands, “I am Ye Xiao, I have heard a lot about Fairy Zhan, and today I was able to see it for myself and you’re truly like a heavenly fairy.”
“As for Imperial Censor Chen, we are old friends.”
He was very well-mannered and his eyes were clear.
Despite his unremarkable appearance, he had a strong sense of intent.
Zhan Qingchen tilted her head, “Your friend?”
Chen Qingluan shook his head, “I don’t know him.”
Ye Xiao laughed forcefully, “Imperial Censor Chen is a noble but forgetful person, back in Yulin City in the Southwest Region, I even fought alongside Censor Chen.”
Chen Qingluan pondered for a moment and said absentmindedly, “You were the Tianyi Sect disciple who was chased and beaten by Su Shi and finally got stabbed with a sword?”
“You didn’t actually die?”
Ye Xiao’s eyebrows jumped wildly for a while.
Although this was true, there was no need to say it in detail!
“It’s true that I’m no match for that Su demon..”
“But no matter how hard the effort and how long the time, one day I will eradicate that demon and return the world to the bright and clear sky!”
He looked resolute, his eyes firm.
The young man had his own ambitions, to live according to the flow of the immortal Yellow River!
That was what a man should do!
Ye Xiao’s blood burned wildly, but the atmosphere was calm and a little awkward.
Zhan Qingchen and Chen Qingluan looked at each other.
This man couldn’t be stupid, could he?
Chen Qingluan frowned and said, “Su Shi is stronger than you, more talented than you, and looks more …… cough, what are you relying on to eradicate him? Relying on this mouth of yours?”
Ye Xiao didn’t take offense and said, “As long as I catch the opportunity, I will be able to surpass him one day!”
“And now is the most opportune time!”
“As long as Su Shi can be expelled, won’t this opportunity be under my control?!”
Chen Qingluan was curious, “But how do you want to expel Su Shi?”
Ye Xiao looked around and said in a low voice, “Su Shi is too confident, he hasn’t even started collecting medicinal materials yet, and he must be the last one to concoct pills!”
“When the pill is about to come out of the furnace, the three of us will attack at the same time to destroy the furnace, he definitely won’t have time to concoct a second one!”
“Didn’t Imperial Censor Chen also lose at the hands of this demon? This is a good opportunity for revenge!”
This was the plan he had just devised.
Not only did he want to successfully pass the exam, he also wanted to kick Su Shi out!
The more Ye Xiao spoke, the more excited he became.
But he did not realize the icy expressions of the two people in front of him.
Chen Qingluan’s eyes were extremely cold, her thumb was slightly above her sword sheath, and a wisp of murderous Qi escaped.
I kill this person first?
At this moment, Zhan Qingchen, who hadn’t spoken yet, spoke, “Ye Xiao, from Tianyi Sect, isn’t?”
Ye Xiao nodded his head, “It is.”
Zhan Qingchen said indifferently, “Alright, I’ll remember that.”
After saying that, she turned straight and left.
Chen Qingluan hesitated for a moment, but still lifted her foot to follow.
Looking at their backs, Ye Xiao scratched his head, “So is this a deal?”
For some reason, he felt that something was off, but he did not know exactly.
The two girls walked out far away, silent all the way.
Chen Qingluan hesitated slightly and asked in a low voice, “What will you do if he makes a move against Su Shi ……?”
Zhan Qingchen’s eyes were indifferent and did not answer.
If not for Chen Qingluan being here, this Ye Xiao would already be a corpse!
If the other party dared to make even the slightest movement during the concubinage process later, even in front of all the righteous people, she would definitely behead him mercilessly!
Chen Qingluan’s face instantly changed when she felt the rich killing aura on her body.
“Qingchen, you’re not really serious about fighting Su Shi, are you?”
“So should I come along too-“
“I will not interfere, even if there is a battle later, I will kill that Ye Xiao first.”
The crowd finished taking the spiritual materials and returned from the Medicinal Mountain one after another.
Finding that Su Shi was still lying down and sleeping, Ye Xiao couldn’t help but smile coldly.
“You will suffer in a moment!”
He sat cross-legged in front of the herb furnace and skillfully lit the furnace and flame, and began refining pills.
After all, refining a high-level spirit pill first and completing the test is serious business.
Looking at Su Shi, who was sleeping peacefully, Zhan Qingchen shook her head amusedly.
That big idiot, he definitely doesn’t know how to refine pills, so it seems like I should do it right away.
Chen Qingluan also noticed the scene.
Fortunately I prepared twice as many herbal potions, this fool!
“”Alright …… forget it, let’s help him concoct one first.””
The two quickly began to light a fire to refine the pill.
Ceng Yiren looked towards the busy crowd and then towards Su Shi who was sound asleep, pulling his hair all over the floor in despair.
“This time it’s over!”
“Huaaaaaaa~ My ancient emperor’s inheritance!”
