Dongfang Yu’s Request
“There’s no need to be so polite. Master can just directly tell this disciple about the request,” replied Jiang Chen with a smile.
The two people he respected the most was Yang Zanqing and Dongfang Yu. A figure with means was always a powerful figure. The fact that Dan Prefecture had become so formidable was because of Dongfang Yu’s capability.
Dongfang Yu began to speak, but then hesitated, seeming somewhat awkward. It was certainly rare that someone could make a late Immortal Emperor supreme alchemist stammer in his words.
“Master has come to ask me to concoct another Holy Flame Emperor Pill?” Jiang Chen said.
Given his intelligence, he could naturally guess Dongfang Yu’s intention. Back when Dongfang Yu rewarded him the Holy Flame Emperor Pill, he could see Dongfang Yu’s desire for the pill. Apart from the reason of asking him to concoct another Holy Flame Emperor Pill, he couldn’t think of any other reason.
Dongfang Yu had the ingredients for the Holy Flame Emperor Pill and the ability to concoct the Holy Flame Emperor Pill, but the pill he could produce could only reach the ninth grade. Although ninth grade and tenth grade was only a grade in difference, its intrinsic quality varied tremendously. One was an Emperor Grade Pill while the other was a Venerable Grade Pill.
Given Dongfang Yu’s current cultivation base, consuming a ninth grade Holy Flame Emperor Pill only had little benefit to him, but if it was a tenth grade Holy Flame Emperor Pill, he could straightaway rush to the half-step Immortal Venerable realm. This realm was hard to step into. He had spent years of hard work just to break through. Jiang Chen’s appearance had made him see a glimmer of hope once more. So despite his identity, he had come asking for Jiang Chen’s help.
“Jiang Chen, you are truly intelligent. In that case, I won’t be polite with you anymore. You are right. My visit this time is to ask you to concoct another Holy Flame Emperor Pill. Given your eyesight, I think you could see that my current cultivation base has already reached the peak of late Immortal Emperor realm, only one step away from the half-step Immortal Venerable realm. If I can have a tenth grade Holy Flame Emperor Pill, it won’t be a problem for me to reach that realm in a short period of time. Of course, I won’t let you do this for nothing. If you ever need anything, just say it. This is a private deal between you and me. It has nothing to do with Dan Prefecture,” Dongfang Yu said.
Since his intention had already been seen through, there was no need for him to hide it anymore. He liked chatting and mingling with intelligent people.
“Master has overestimated my capability. It’s Jiang Chen’s honour to be able to help Master. How would I dare to ask for any more reward? The Holy Flame Emperor Pill was originally in Master’s hand this afternoon and Master could have claimed that as your own, and could’ve given me some other kind of reward, but Master didn’t do so. This disposition and spirit is truly admirable. Master only has to prepare the herbs for the pill. After taking the pill, Master will be able to advance to the half-step Immortal Venerable realm. This will help Genius Prefecture and the Empire to have another supreme expert. In other words, I, Jiang Chen, would have done a meritorious deed for the Empire,” said Jiang Chen with a smile.
Jiang Chen was willing to concoct the Holy Flame Emperor Pill for Dongfang Yu. Just like what he had said, given Dongfang Yu’s identity and status, there was no need for him to reward the Holy Flame Emperor Pill to Jiang Chen, because there were too many other things he could’ve rewarded him. Xuan Zhong also concocted a Holy Flame Emperor Pill, but Xuan Zhong didn’t get the pill he made. Such an act was eliminating the greed inside of the person. To a cultivator, such a thing was incredibly rare.
Moreover, it was easy and effortless for Jiang Chen to refine the Holy Flame Emperor Pill. Of course, Dongfang Yu would have to prepare the spiritual herbs, because those herbs were too precious. Jiang Chen wouldn’t be able to provide that kind of resources.
“Alright. Jiang Chen, you are a forthright person. I like having someone like you as a friend. In that case, I won’t be polite with you anymore from now on.”
Dongfang Yu looked over at Jiang Chen. His eyes were full of praise. Who wouldn’t like such a genius? He straightaway took out the herbs required for the Holy Flame Emperor Pill. Such herbs weren’t many in the entire Dan Prefecture, but Dongfang Yu was able to take them out due to his identity.
“Okay. Have a little rest. I will start concocting the pill now.”
Jiang Chen waved his hand. The herbs flew to his front. His soul power enveloped all the herbs like a wave. Three kinds of supreme flames rushed out, turning into a sea of fire, integrating with the soul power. The herbs were then tossed into the sea of fire to begin the extraction.
Dongfang Yu’s eyes glittered. Even though he had seen Jiang Chen’s technique before, he still couldn’t help being shocked. Such technique was just too heaven defying and shocking.
“What an amazing kid! He has actually advanced to the Immortal King realm. It seems the Holy Flame Emperor Pill has given him huge benefits.”
Dongfang Yu sensed that Jiang Chen’s cultivation base was no longer at the half-step Immortal King, but at the early Immortal King realm. As a matter of fact, given his eyesight, he should have seen the improvement in Jiang Chen’s cultivation base, but because Jiang Chen didn’t release any bit of Qi, plus all his concentration had been put on the matter of Holy Flame Emperor Pill, he didn’t pay extra attention in the improvement of Jiang Chen’s cultivation base.
Flaming waves surged. In a matter of minutes, the essence of the spiritual herbs were completely extracted. Such a scene made Dongfang Yu couldn’t help shaking his head and sighed. There are always miracles in this world and these miracles could never be judged by common sense. Jiang Chen was just like those miracles.
“The appearance of this man will be the greatest fortune of our Genius Prefecture and Great Qian Empire. His future achievements will surely be immeasurable. It seems like it was absolutely not accident that he could walk out of that valley alive.”
Dongfang Yu felt that he was witnessing a miracle. Having a genius like this was the biggest luck of Genius Prefecture and Great Qian Empire.
A dozen minutes later, the sea of fire sent out a bang. Then, a red pill flew out of it. Dongfang Yu’s eyes fell on the pill that radiated a strange light. A shadow of a dragon was flickering on the surface of the pill. Inside of it was some kind of wriggling liquid. The whole pill was full of spirituality and seemed mystical to the extreme.
With Dongfang Yu’s eyesight, he was able to tell that the grade of this pill was exactly the same as the previous pill. It was a perfect tenth grade pill!
Such a situation shocked him totally, because even he, could make some mistakes in the process. Even if he were to concoct a ninth grade Holy Flame Emperor Pill, it would take at least an hour to complete, whereas Jiang Chen used only twenty minutes to concoct a tenth grade pill. It seemed too easy and more importantly, Jiang Chen success was just too unbelievable.
