Chapter 1049: Goodbye, Star Stepping Tower Master
At any other time, Ning Cheng would never use the Five-elements Primal Chaos Aura to refine a Dao Essence Dao Pill. After all, even a strand of Five-elements Primal Chaos Aura is far more valuable than a Dao Essence Dao Pill. It was like using the Bestowing Lawless Fruit to refine the Six Yn Soul Pill, an act not worth the cost.
But now, Ning Cheng needed to confirm if his failure to refine the Celestial Origin Heavenly Pill was due to the incomplete laws of the Grand Essence Realm.
Carefully taking out the materials for the second batch of Celestial Origin Heavenly Pills, Ning Cheng brought out the No Furnace and decided to use the Celestial River Flame this time. Compared to the Nameless Flame, Ning Cheng preferred using the Celestial River Flame.
One by one, Ning Cheng reduced each ingredient into its respective liquid form and burned away the impurities till only the essence of the divine herbs remained in the form of a formless glob of liquid. Once he reduced all the auxiliary herbs to such a state, Ning Cheng carefully introduced the Celestial Origin Fruit and the Extreme Yin Sacred Fruit into the furnace. In the same motion, Ning Cheng grabbed the strands of the fruits’ dao rhythms before injecting all five elemental strands of the Five-elements Primal Chaos Aura into the pill furnace.
Fortunately, as soon as the strands of Five-elements Primal Chaos Aura entered the furnace, the laws and dao rhythm of the formless glob and the primary dao fruits within the furnace stabilised and no longer acted as erratic as before.
“Celestial Origin Fruit, merge your dao fruit’s laws into the dao pill for me!”
“Extreme Yin Sacred Fruit, merge your dao fruit’s laws into the dao pill for me!”
Ning Cheng went all out, using one pill art after another and letting his alchemic dao’s dao rhythm pour into the furnace freely.
As the medicinal essences came into contact, the laws and dao rhythm of the two opposite attributed dao fruits suddenly fused and merged with his alchemic dao’s dao rhythm!
All laws returned to one, and the nascent form of the Celestial Origin Heavenly Pills emerged. With the pills’ dao rhythm fusing with the nascent pill, the dao pill finally started to take shape!
Ning Cheng remained calm and emotionless, as steady as a stone. From the moment he put the first auxiliary herb into the furnace until now, Ning Cheng encountered no obstacles. His failure to refine the first batch of Celestial Origin Heavenly Pills was due to the sudden collapse of the laws and dao rhythm of the two opposite attributed dao fruits during the fusion stage. However, he reached the pill formation stage without facing any major challenges.
Three hours later, a burst of fragrance permeated the air. Ning Cheng immediately understood that the Celestial Origin Heavenly Pills were about to form fully. Looks like Sichen Qiutian’s guess wasn’t wrong. The laws of this realm were indeed too fragmented to be suitable for refining the Celestial Origin Heavenly Pills.
Just when he thought of this, twelve milky-white pills flew out of the pill furnace and landed in the jade bottles prepared by Ning Cheng. The expected pill tribulation didn’t occur, which made Ning Cheng suspect that the previous pill tribulation was not caused by the formation of the Six Yin Soul Pills but by the Bestowing Lawless Fruit.
The twelve Celestial Origin Heavenly Pill contained a powerful pill rhythm and a hint of Five-elements Primal Chaos Aura. In other words, these Celestial Origin Heavenly Pills were much better than the ordinary variety.
Ning Cheng picked up one of the Celestial Origin Heavenly Pills and held it in his hand. The pill’s milk-white surface s.h.i.+mmered with numerous pill patterns, making it very pleasing to the eye.
Putting away the Celestial Origin Heavenly Pills, Ning Cheng decided to refine another batch in the Grand Change Realm without adding any Five-elements Primal Chaos Aura. That way, he could prove Sichen Qiutian’s theory that Celestial Origin Heavenly Pills couldn’t form in the Grand Essence Realm because of incomplete worldly laws.
Star Stepping Tower; Ning Cheng didn’t want to come but had no choice since Cen Ruxuan decided to take up a room here.
He had already broken his promise twice but still needed Cen Ruxuan’s Celestial Origin Heavenly Pills’ ingredients. So, he had no choice but to take the initiative and visit here.
“I felt that something good would happen today, and sure enough, Pill Sage Ning came.” Cen Ruxuan joyfully opened the restriction on her room and welcomed Ning Cheng in.
After entering the room, Ning Cheng found that Palace Master Luan and Yin Yueshu from the Profound Aquatic Palace were also there, so he had to greet them individually. In any case, Palace Master Luan had a higher status than him, and he still owes a favour to Yin Yueshu.
“Since Pill Sage Ning came, presumably, you have already finished refining the dao pills.” Unexpectedly, Palace Master Luan, the one person who never liked to talk, suddenly asked Ning Cheng.
Ning Cheng once again cupped his fists and said, “The Extreme Profound Heavenly Ice Pills have been refined. These are your pills.”
After saying that, Ning Cheng took out nine jade bottles and put them on the table.
Cen Ruxuan quickly scooped up one of the jade bottles and poured her spiritual consciousness to carefully scan the contents. After a moment, she spoke with extreme satisfaction, “Many thanks, Pill Sage Ning. Pill Sage Ning’s reputation is truly well deserved; even a pseudo-supreme grade pill is in it.”
When she heard Ning Cheng speak only about the Extreme Profound Heavenly Ice Pills and not mention anything about the Celestial Origin Heavenly Pills, she understood that Ning Cheng must have encountered some problems refining the Celestial Origin Heavenly Pills. She said those flattering words in advance because she didn’t want Palace Master Luan to cross paths with Ning Cheng. After all, Ning Cheng was a legitimate Dao Essence Pill Sage, but five furnaces of Celestial Origin Heavenly Pills were also of incredible value. What’s more, if Ning Cheng failed to refine them, and they still tried to befriend Ning Cheng, it wouldn’t benefit the Profound Aquatic Palace.
Not to mention that the Profound Aquatic Palace had no way to kill Ning Cheng, even if they disregarded everything and killed Ning Cheng; what about it?
Unfortunately, Palace Master Luan didn’t take the hint and spoke indifferently, “So does that mean Pill Sage Ning has not refined the Celestial Origin Heavenly Pills?”
Ning Cheng cupped his fists and said, “I would like to ask Palace Master Luan if she knows that the Celestial Origin Heavenly Pills are difficult to refine and hence never asked anyone else to refine them?”
Ning Cheng believed that the Profound Aquatic Palace should already know about the difficulties in refining the Celestial Origin Heavenly Pills. Since they knew that and let him refine the Celestial Origin Heavenly Pill and said nothing about not pursuing the refinement failure, they already had something else in their mind.
Cen Ruxuan quickly said, “Pill Sage Ning, we understand that the Celestial Origin Heavenly Pill is difficult to refine. It’s just that we never took out the ingredients because there are only two Dao Essence Pill Sages in the entire Grand Essence Domain. In addition to Pill Sage Ning, there is only Union Master Sichen Qiutian. Pill Sage Ning should know that Union Master Sichen never helps people refine pills, so we could only contact Pill Sage Ning. We didn’t intend to mislead you.”
Ning Cheng felt a little embarra.s.sed. It’s just that after becoming a Dao Essence Pill Sage, he didn’t feel anything great about it.
That previous line of questioning was because he was still on that mountain. Now that Cen Ruxuan explicitly put down her reason, he quickly sobered up. It was just as Cen Ruxuan said. He was the only one in the Grand Essence Realm qualified to refine the Celestial Origin Heavenly Pills. If the Profound Aquatic Palace didn’t seek him out, who else could they ask for help?
Catching Ning Cheng’s embarra.s.sment, Cen Ruxuan asked, “Is there a problem with refining the Celestial Origin Heavenly Pills?”
Ning Cheng chose not to conceal the facts this time, “Honestly, yes. My first furnace of Celestial Origin Heavenly Pills failed, so I dared not continue refining more. Later, I consulted Union Master Sichen, who told me it was most likely caused by the incomplete laws of the Grand Essence Realm, so I decided not to refine any more batches.”
“Because of this, I came here to discuss the next steps with Senior Sister Ruxuan. I want to bring the remaining ingredients to the Grand Change Realm. If you think it might not work, I can compensate you for failing that one batch and return the rest of the ingredients.”
Ning Cheng did not hide failing to refine the Celestial Origin Heavenly Pills. That failure and the subsequent success had started to make him feel that the Grand Essence Realm was lacking resources, and if everyone were like Sichen Qiutian, wasting fifty-one batches to find a reason, then the Grand Essence Realm would only grow weaker. By stating the reason, he also intended to let Cen Ruxuan spread the word and tell others that Celestial Origin Heavenly Pills cannot form in the Grand Essence Realm.
As for that one furnace of Celestial Origin Heavenly Pills that he had refined, Ning Cheng didn’t want to give it away. That furnace had succeeded because of the Five-elements Primal Chaos Aura, which meant that it was countless times much more valuable than ordinary Celestial Origin Heavenly Pill batches.
So that was the case. After hearing Ning Cheng’s explanation, Palace Master Luan’s expressions finally eased up.
Cen Ruxuan even said, “Since my Profound Aquatic Palace has chosen to ask Pill Sage Ning to refine the Celestial Origin Heavenly Pills, then we will continue to trust Pill Sage Ning’s judgement. Please take the pills into the Grand Change Realm to refine them. Even if they all fail, my Profound Aquatic Palace will not say anything. If Pill Sage Ning can get a ranking in the Five Grand Realms’ Alchemy Compet.i.tion, I only hope you can leave a spot for my Profound Aquatic Palace.”
Cen Ruxuan’s words made Ning Cheng very comfortable, and he cupped his fists and replied, “Don’t worry; if I can get a ranking in the Five Grand Realms’ Alchemy Compet.i.tion, I will leave one for Profound Aquatic Palace. If there is nothing else, I will take my leave first.”
“Okay, Yueshu, please see Pill Sage Ning off.” Cen Ruxuan also didn’t want to keep Ning Cheng here. After all, Palace Master Luan almost broke out of character when facing Ning Cheng.
“Yes,” Not waiting for Ning Cheng to reject, Yin Yueshu immediately opened the restrictions and walked out of the room.
“Junior Sister Yueshu, please go back inside. I still have to take care of other things.” After following Yin Yueshu out, Ning Cheng asked her to return as politely as possible. He was going to deliver Gong Ximao’s dao pills. These people treated him politely when speaking to him, but he also didn’t want others to think he was amazing.
Yin Yueshu, however, didn’t go back inside. Instead, she lowered her head and whispered, “I want to invite Big Brother Ning for a walk around Heaven Essence Sacred City. But I don’t know if Big Brother Ning is free?”
As soon as Ning Cheng heard this, he knew what Yin Yueshu had in mind. Yin Yueshu wanted to befriend him, but rather than a normal friends.h.i.+p, she wanted to form a more intimate relations.h.i.+p with him. He had no affection towards Yin Yueshu and knew why she wanted to do this; she wanted to come close to him to take advantage of him. This woman looks up to herself too much to dare use such low-level tactics on him.
“I’m sorry, but I have many things to do today. I can’t accompany you for a walk. Don’t worry; if you come looking for me for a furnace of pills in the future, I will not refuse.”
Ning Cheng put it up as succinctly as possible. The favour I owe you, helping you refine a batch of pills, is enough to return it. As for other ideas, people don’t cross the river searching for well water, so don’t waste time on such things.
“Hehe. Looks like Pill Sage Ning can’t understand the ways of the world. When a beauty invites you to go shopping, she wants to hook up with you. Yet, you refused.” A crisp voice rang out, followed by a black-robed woman with a veil appearing just a short distance away.
Star Stepping Tower Master? Ning Cheng’s pupils shrank, and his body immediately jolted alert. Now that he reached the Dao Raising Realm, he could tell that the Star Stepping Tower master’s cultivation hadn’t reached the Dao Fusion Realm, but it wasn’t far off either. Evaluating the situation in a split second, Ning Cheng came up with two choices: one was to rush into Cen Ruxuan’s room, and the second was to use the Dao Breaking Bead and rush out of the Star Stepping Tower.
However, Ning Cheng believed the Star Stepping Tower Master wouldn’t dare act. Still, just in case, he prepared both options in advance.
“Hook up?” Ning Cheng frowned slightly. He understood the two words, and now he felt more certain that this Star Stepping Tower Master was from Earth.
If Sheng Huotian’s poisoning was this woman’s work, then this woman was insidious and cunning beyond compare.
The Star Stepping Tower Master stared at Ning Cheng with a smile in her eyes, “You don’t know about ‘hookups’? Then let me teach you. It’s when a woman is in heat and wants s.e.x from you.”
How could Yin Yueshu stand such shamelessness? Her face immediately turned cold; however, she also understood that she couldn’t do anything to the Star Stepping Tower Master. Therefore, she bowed to Ning Cheng before turning away. If anyone else dared say this, she would have immediately killed them.
