Chapter 851: Deliberating a Plan
Xiao Yan's words sort of startled Xiao Li and Su Qian, but their faces did not reveal any surprise. They had already guessed a little of the reason for Xiao Yan's trip.
"You are also interested in that thing?" Su Qian mused for a moment. His finger was gently tapping on the table's surface as he slowly said.
"This friend of mine needs that thing to save her life…" Xiao Yan sighed.
Su Qian and Xiao Li were startled when they heard this. They immediately glanced at the Little Fairy Doctor by his side. They both frowned and said, "Can you tell us what is happening?"
Xiao Yan hesitated a little. His eyes swept over to the Little Fairy Doctor. Only after seeing the latter nod her head did he roughly mention the Little Fairy Doctor's situation. He naturally did not hide the matter of the 'Woeful Poison Body' while he spoke.
"Woeful Poison Body?"
Xiao Li was still alright after hearing the name that had come from Xiao Yan's mouth. Su Qian, however, had gently inhaled a breath of cold air. His eyes were shocked as he looked at the Little Fairy Doctor, who was biting her lower red lip with the back of her teeth. He had heard about this kind extremely rare and special condition. Naturally, he knew just how terrifying this thing was. The 'Woeful Poison Body' had appeared on the Dou Qi continent in the past. However, all of the people who possessed it brought forth quite a big disaster without exception. Thousands of kilometers of death without any humans or beasts surviving was like a nightmare that was spread through the records of many books.
"No wonder she was able to become an elite Dou Zong at such an age. It was because of the 'Woeful Poison Body'…" The shock in Su Qian's eyes slowly withdrew sometime later as he softly muttered to himself. From the very beginning, he had felt perplexed by the Little Fairy Doctor's age. After all, it was the first time that he had met such a young Dou Zong. If she had simply relied on her own talent, it would have been a little too frightening. Even Xiao Yan was far inferior.
"The 'Woeful Poison Body' grows increasingly closer to the time of its eruption following an increase in her strength. Currently, the Little Fairy Doctor has less than two years time. If we do not think of a way to control it, her poison body will erupt, replaying the events of another disastrous tragedy." Xiao Yan slowly explained.
"That Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva is able to help her?" Xiao Li frowned and asked.
"Yes. As long as I obtain the Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva, I will be able to help her completely control the 'Woeful Poison Body'." Xiao Yan nodded heavily as he replied.
Hearing this, Su Qian used a somewhat strange expression to look at Xiao Yan. He said, "The 'Woeful Poison Body' has appeared on Dou Qi continent before. However, all of them ended up erupting and dying. Not a single person has successfully controlled the 'Woeful Poison Body'. After all, the stronger one was, the greater the density of the poison within one's body. The eruption will be more terrifying…"
"First Elder, please rest reassured. As long as I have gathered the ingredients, I have the confidence to do it." Xiao Yan smiled and continued, "However, the greatest problem currently is how to obtain the Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva. There are quite a number of people in this Black Emperor City who are after it."
"What quite a number? As long as it is a person with some strength, he will be targeting it." Su Qian shook his head. He frowned before continuing, "However, it will not be an easy task to obtain the Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva from the hands of Old Ying Shan. That old fellow is an expert in the 'Black-Corner Region' from the older generation. His strength is likely a little stronger than even mine. Moreover, that fellow is extremely vicious. Back when he shook the 'Black-Corner Region', there were an unknown number of factions who died by his hand. It is not going overboard to say that he is filled with bloody debts."
"Does First Elder know the exact strength of that Old Ying Shan? Does he have any factions behind him?" Xiao Yan voiced his thoughts.
"This old fellow is eccentric, and doesn't like to be constrained. Hence, he will likely be alone. However, his current strength should have reached the level of a four star Dou Zong." Su Qian slowly responded.
"Is he alone?" Xiao Yan sighed in relief. Regardless of the situation, dealing with a single person was much more relaxing than dealing with an entire faction.
"If the old me were to join hands with the Little Fairy Doctor, we should be able to defeat Old Ying Shan. However, things are not so simple. Even if we snatch the Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva from his hands first, how will we face those many people with malicious intent following him?" Su Qian spoke with a deep voice. "This is especially the case for that Demon Flame Valley. They have dispatched quite a number of experts this time around. That Fang Yan is an expert with half a foot into the Dou Zong class, and he is extremely strong. Adding those Dou Huang Elders who cooperate well, they should be enough to momentarily delay a Dou Zong. Perhaps you have also sensed it, but there is also a mysterious gray-robed person of unknown origin in the Demon Flame Valley's group. That person is definitely an elite Dou Zong!"
Xiao Yan's eyes also sank when he heard Su Qian mention that mysterious gray-robed person. The person whom he was most afraid of was this mysterious gray-robed person…
"Is this person the valley chief of the Demon Flame Valley?" Xiao Yan frowned and asked.
"No. The valley chief of the Demon Flame Valley is currently in a retreat. Moreover, that old fellow's aura is completely different from this gray-robed person. Therefore, they cannot be the same person." Su Qian shook his head and rejected Xiao Yan's guess.
"Where did the Demon Flame Valley find such an expert to help them? An elite Dou Zong. Regardless of how low a profile he keeps, rumors would definitely spread in the 'Black-Corner Region'." Xiao Yan spoke in a soft doubtful manner.
Su Qian and Xiao Li shook their heads. The latter frowned and said, "This gray-robed person never revealed himself when we fought with the Demon Flame Valley in the past. It is likely that he only started cooperating with the Demon Flame Valley recently."
Xiao Yan vaguely nodded. He immediately clenched his fist and softly said, "No matter where this fellow came from, we must obtain the Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva this time around. Otherwise, once that Old Ying Shan brings that thing into the deep mountains and ancient forests, we will lose his trace. At that time, where would we go and find another Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva?"
"If you really want to target the Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva, the old me suggests that you don't be the first to act. Currently, this Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva is a scalding item. Anyone who obtains it will invite a countless number of greedy eyes." Su Qian slowly said. "The sparrow is behind the mantis hunting the cicada. Behind the sparrow is a hunter. In this kind of chaotic snatching, the person who strikes the earliest will be at the greatest disadvantage."
"First Elder is trying to say wait to be the last person to strike?" Xiao Yan hesitated and asked.
"Even if we aren't the last, we cannot be the first. Observe the situation and act when the opportunity comes." Su Qian's eyes narrowed as he faintly laughed.
Xiao Yan was silent for a moment when he heard this. He nodded and said, "In that case, we will do as First Elder has said."
"Relax, there are spies from 'Xiao Gate' where Old Ying Shan resides. Should any changes occur in the city, we will obtain news almost immediately." Xiao Li laughed, "All of you should rest here during these two days. There will be someone who will inform you should there be an update to the situation."
Xiao Yan nodded his head. They were naturally able to save quite a lot of trouble with the help of the people from 'Xiao Gate.'
The atmosphere in the hall became somewhat more relaxing after they had finished discussing the most important matter. Xiao Li asked a female servant to serve tea, and suddenly changed the topic of conversation, "That's right, what has happened in the Jia Ma Empire? The last message I received was a letter from big brother requesting help. It said that three large empires and three large sects had joined hands to attack the Yan Alliance? Back then, I was unable to divert any manpower due to us just having a big fight with the Demon Flame Valley. When the situation for us had become a little better, the empire had dispatched news that everything was fine."
Xiao Yan's face was somewhat stiff when he heard Xiao Li's sudden question. The delicate hands of the Little Fairy Doctor by the side also vaguely trembled while she held her teacup. She sipped some tea, lowered her eyes, and revealed an unnatural expression.
"Ke ke, everything's fine…" Xiao Yan placed his teacup down and viciously stared at Zi Yan who was curling her small mouth. After which, he laughed and randomly emitted a response. He hurriedly said, "Second brother, you should help us arrange a place to stay. We have not rested properly during these few days."
"In that case, all of you should go and have a good night's rest. I will send someone to inform you if we receive any news tomorrow."
Xiao Li relaxed after hearing that everything was fine. He smiled and nodded before waving over a female servant to lead Xiao Yan's group to the rooms in the backyard.
Xiao Yan glanced at the expression of the Little Fairy Doctor beside him as he walked down the quiet corridor of the compound. He softly said, "Relax, it's fine. You cannot be blamed for this matter."
The Little Fairy Doctor faintly nodded. She immediately let out a bitter laugh. If she had known earlier that Xiao Yan was the chief of the Yan Alliance, there would not have been that one year long war. Now that the matter had already occurred, she could only be glad that she did not cause any of Xiao Yan's relatives to die in that war. Otherwise, she really would not have the face to stand beside Xiao Yan, nor watch him help her spend the time and effort to control her poison body.
"Alright, you should go and rest first. We can talk tomorrow." Xiao Yan smiled. He gave the Little Fairy Doctor a suggestion when he saw that the female servant had stopped outside of a room.
"Yes, you should also rest early." The Little Fairy Doctor nodded her head after seeing that it was already quite late. She spoke gentle to Xiao Yan before shifting her feet to softly walk into the room.
Xiao Yan sent the Little Fairy Doctor into the room with his eyes before sighing. He immediately passed through a corridor and quickly walked into his own room.
The night sky was like a black curtain that covered the Black Emperor City. The faint, cool light of the moon passed through a layer of cloud and scattered down. Finally, it landed in a room where a black-robed, young man was training with his eyes shut.
Substance-like energy lingered around Xiao Yan's nose before being absorbed into his body. After some refinement, it turned into threads of pure Dou Qi that entered his body.
Xiao Yan slowly opened his tightly shut eyes. He sensed the soundless joy that was emitted from his cells after being filled with strength. He smiled and waved his hand. A large black-colored object immediately appeared in this somewhat big room.
The black-colored item was quite big. It occupied over half of his room when it appeared. Gem-like bone wings reflected a faint light as warm lamplight radiated on it, giving it an exceptionally strange appearance.
This thing was naturally that Magical Beast corpse that Xiao Yan had paid a great price to obtain from the Black Emperor Sect.
Chapter 852: Splitting a Corpse
Xiao Yan smiled as he quickly looked over the Magical Beast corpse that had appeared in the room. His body moved and he leaped down from the bed. After which, he slowly walked to the side of the corpse. His eyes slowly took in the sight before him.
Due to this Magical Beast corpse having been dead for a long time, the flesh on its entire body had dried and shrunk together. Therefore, Xiao Yan was unable to identify just what Magical Beast it was from its outer appearance. However, Xiao Yan did not have much interest in the body of this Magical Beast. His only interest were the jade-like bone wings of this Magical Beast since they could help him refine a pair of high quality Sky Bird Nine Flying Wings.
Xiao Yan shifted his feet, and stopped when he was next to the jade-like bone wings, which were twenty to thirty feet wide. His hand gently rubbed the bone wings. An frigid feeling could be felt from his hand. However, this icy-cool feeling contained a faint warmth. It was difficult to imagine that this dried corpse, that had been dead for an unknown number of years, would still be able to emit heat.
These jade-like bone wings were somewhat transparent. Hence, Xiao Yan was able to see an unusual energy with his naked eye. It seemed to be flowing a within the bone wings.
Xiao Yan's finger gently knocked on the jade-like bone wings. The toughness that was transmitted to his hand caused Xiao Yan to nod his head in satisfaction. His eyes immediately narrowed as his Spiritual Strength followed his finger and quietly entered those wings.
Xiao Yan's spiritual strength carefully traveled through his bones. However, before he could let it loose, the bone wings suddenly emitted a bright jade-like glow. Xiao Yan's spirit immediately appeared to have entered a tornado. A wild and violent suctioning strength brutally tore his spiritual strength into nothing.
Xiao Yan's narrowed eyes were suddenly opened. His hand withdrew as though it had been shocked by electricity. His eyes revealed a thread of lingering fear as they study the jade-like bone wings. Some shock surged into his heart. He did not expect the bone wings to hide such a wild and violent wind affinity energy. Moreover, the thing that caused Xiao Yan to be most surprised was that the wind energy still emitted a miniscule feeling of heat. These two kinds different affinities were perfectly preserved in these wings. Such a situation was really mysterious.
"It is indeed worthy of being an ultimate fierce beast about to breakthrough to the eighth rank. Despite having been dead for many years, its wings are still able to preserve such a wild and violent energy. If these are used to refine the Sky Bird Nine Flying Wings, the product might be greater than originally expected." Xiao Yan licked his lips. Some fiery heat gradually surfaced in his dark-black eyes. This time around, he might really have gained a treasure. It was worthwhile to spend a couple of medicinal pills even if the interior of this Magical Beast corpse was only a pile of rotten flesh. Just these bone wings would be able to match the value of those medicinal pills.
Xiao Yan gently rubbed his hands. His eyes once again glanced at this large Magical Beast corpse. His hand shook and a sharp longsword appeared. A layer of a jade-green fire quietly seeped out. It lingered around the blade. The hot temperature caused this steel longsword to emit a tiny bit of white smoke.
Xiao Yan positioned the longsword before he violently pierced it into the spot where the jade-like bone wings connected to the corpse. The expected resistance did not appear. The skin on the surface of the dried Magical Beast was like beancurd as the longsword penetrated it.
Xiao Yan sighed in disappointment when he felt this. It seemed that the skin of this Magical Beast lost its toughness from the rot over the years. His intentions of using it to create a hide armor could only be dismissed.
Xiao Yan tightly gripped the sword hilt in his hand as he swung the longsword to slowly cut off the skin at the bottom of the bone wings. Once the skin on the surface was cut off, an unusually white flesh was revealed under it. However, not the slightest amount of blood seeped out.
Although Xiao Yan felt somewhat surprised that this Magical Beast meat was maintained for many years without rotting, he could only shake his head in disappointment after studying it in detail. There was not the slightest amount of energy mixed in this flesh. It was likely that the only reason it was able to survive for so long was because it was covered by skin.
Xiao Yan's blade carefully created two large holes in this dried Magical Beast's corpse. After which, he took out the jade-like bone wings, and carefully placed them on the ground.
The jade-like bone wings, that had left the body of the Magical Beast, did not show any signs of dimming. This caused Xiao Yan to sigh in relief. He was somewhat worried that this thing would transform into a pile of useless things the moment they left the body. Looking at them now, his worry was unnecessary.
Xiao Yan extended his head into one of the two large holes after removing the bone wings. A sour stench that caused one to feel giddy vented from it, choking him until he hurriedly stopped breathing.
Xiao Yan shrank back. He hesitated for a moment before clenching his teeth and saying, "I don't believe that such a large body does not hold anything." The sword blade was swung after his voice sounded. It cut with a couple of light arcs, and swiftly left behind over a dozen deep sword scars.
Thin wire-like sword scars slowly curled before swiftly expanding. A couple of blinks later, they split apart like a slit. The Magical Beast corpse appeared to have been split into multiple pieces as it collapsed. Dense, white flesh was revealed. This large fellow was disemboweled by Xiao Yan.
A thick, sour stench seeped out after this dried Magical Beast corpse was opened by Xiao Yan. Finally, it curled up and emitted a 'chi chi' sound when it met the ceiling. The ceiling was immediately corroded in front of Xiao Yan's stunned eyes. An enormous hole was formed. If one stood beneath it, one would be able to see the crescent moon hanging in the night sky.
Xiao Yan clicked his tongue, and marveled the sight after the sour stench completely scattered. He carefully stood beside that Magical Beast corpse that was cut open. His gaze swept over it before disappointment appeared in his eyes. One could see that the interior of this Magical Beast corpse was only filled with dense, white flesh. Not even a small piece of bone remained, much less any internal organs.
"Don't tell me that they were corroded by that acidic gas? But why is it that this flesh has not corroded?" Xiao Yan knit his brows and doubtfully muttered. However, he still had no answer a moment later.
"Dammit, even if the acidic gas is able to corrode its bones and organs, what about the Monster Core? That is the spot where a Magical Beast's energy agglomerates. It's impossible that it was also corroded by the acidic gas, right?" Xiao Yan frowned. His hand continued to grip the longsword as he randomly cut the dense, white flesh over ten times. This was especially the case at the Magical Beast's head. However, only a shockingly white color remained where the flesh parted. The head was completely empty without the slightest trace of blood or organs, much less a Monster Core.
"Does this large fellow only have these bone wings?" Xiao Yan once again cut some pieces of meat. However, it was futile. He could only helplessly abandon the longsword and softly curse.
"Ugh, forget it. With these bone wings, I can be considered to have recouped what I spent. If it doesn't have anything else, then so be it." Xiao Yan was depressed for a moment before he shook his head. Just as he was planning to store the corpse of this Magical Beast he had dissected, a tender, clear voice suddenly sounded in the room.
"You are actually committing such a disgusting act at night."
Xiao Yan was startled when he heard this familiar voice. He immediately raised his head and saw that Zi Yan was shaking her two small snow-white legs on the roof where the acidic gas had corroded it away. She was curling her mouth and staring at him.
"Why aren't you asleep so late at night? What are you doing running to the roof of my room?" Xiao Yan sat down in a chair and laughed as he rolled his eyes at Zi Yan.
"Originally, I intended to sleep but ended up sniffing a scent that caused me to feel extremely uncomfortable. After which, I woke up and searched for the source of the scent." Zi Yan gently leaped into the room. She used her leg to kick at the mysterious Magical Beast corpse that had been disemboweled. She said, "So it originated from this thing."
Xiao Yan lazily leaned against the backrest of this chair. He laughed, "If you are interested, you can just take it away. I don't know if the meat that has been inside it for an unknown number of years can still be eaten."
Zi Yan, whose back was facing Xiao Yan, ignored his teasing. A pair of gem-like eyes slowly swept over the Magical Beast as a faint purple light slowly hovered over her.
As the purple light hovered, Zi Yan suddenly picked up the longsword on the ground before cutting ten white nails off the claws of the Magical Beast in front of Xiao Yan's stunned gaze. She carefully placed them on a table.
"What are you doing? You won't really want these things, will you?" Xiao Yan helplessly complained after feeling stunned at what she did. He casually pulled over a half-a-finger-long nail and gently pressed it. The latter caved like soft mud. It had already lost all of its hardness.
Zi Yan was somewhat excited in the face of Xiao Yan's lack of interest. She urged, "You should help by taking out your 'Heavenly Flame' to burn these things."
Xiao Yan was immediately startled when he heard this. He was just about to inquire a little more when he saw Zi Yan's extremely anxious manner. Without saying anything unnecessary, he flicked his finger and a wisp of a jade-green flame surfaced on his finger. After which, it wrapped around the pale-white nail of the claw.
A scene that caused Xiao Yan to be shocked slowly appeared as the 'Heavenly Flame' danced. One could see the soft pale-white mud-like nail did not instantly turn into ashes under the grilling of the 'Glazed Lotus Heart Flame'. Instead, it gradually shrank at an extremely slow pace. Following the shrinking of its size, the pale-white color gradually disappeared. A green-red color replaced it. The sharp edges of the nail revealed a cold glint amid the 'Heavenly Flame' that caused even Xiao Yan to feel a chill.
The burning continued for around ten minutes or so before the pale-white nail transformed into a sharp knuckle-sized green-red thorn. The green and red mixed together appeared like the merger of wind and flame as it emitted a whizzing heat. Even Xiao Yan was stunned when he saw this mysterious scene. Who would have thought that this thing… would have turned into this after being cooked by the 'Heavenly Flame'.
Could this be the essence that was hidden under the body? In other words… was this mysterious Magical Beast corpse was not as useless as he had imagined?
Chapter 853: Green-Red Blood
"You know what's valuable in this dried corpse, right?"
The heat in Xiao Yan's eyes was slowly withdrawn as he suddenly stared at Zi Yan beside the table. He spoke in a somewhat fervent manner. If not because of this girl's prodding, it was likely that he would never have found out that this claw would reveal such a mysterious scene after being grilled by the 'Heavenly Flame'.
Xiao Yan glanced at this green-red spike that was exceptionally sharp despite its small size. He grabbed it and gently pulled it across the surface of the table. Immediately, the hard table that was made from solid wood broke apart like beancurd. The point where it broke apart was as smooth as a mirror.
"What a sharp bone spike…" The sharpness of this thing caused Xiao Yan to gently inhale a breath of cool air. Almost instantly, the gaze he used to look at Zi Yan became an ardent one. Since this girl knew the method to resolve the secret of this claw, it was likely that she was also aware of other things, right?
Zi Yan merely lifted her exquisite chin in a proud manner in the face of Xiao Yan's gaze. She said, "You should help this young miss refine these ten pieces and help me use them to create a knuckle glove. Hee hee, this will be my weapon in the future."
Xiao Yan was startled when he heard this. He immediately lowered his head to study this sharp bone spike in his hand. The moment he thought of being struck by this small thing, he involuntarily began to shiver. If this thing cooperated with Zi Yan's frightening strength in delivering a punch, it was likely that even an expert Dou Huang would suffer a serious blow even if he did not die.
In his anxiety to know about the secrets of this mysterious Magical Beast, Xiao Yan could not be bothered to find fault with this little fellow who got carried away. He carefully placed the bone spike in his hand down before picking up the remaining nine pale-white nails. A jade-green flame curled and rose as these nails were thrown in with a random toss.
The nine pale-white nails once again revealed a similar change following the heat from the Glazed Lotus Heart Flame. The pale-white color slowly disappeared as an unusual green-red color replaced it. They also shrank in size.
The grilling continued for around half an hour or so before the jade-green flame suspended in front of of him slowly disappeared. The nine green-red bone spikes within it also fell. Immediately, Xiao Yan waved his hand, and they were wrapped by a gentle wind as they landed gently on the remaining half of the table.
The surprise expression in Xiao Yan's eyes became much paler after these ten bone spikes were grilled. He exhaled and wiped off the cold sweat on his forehead.
Zi Yan by his side happily grabbed the ten green-red bone spikes. After which, she carefully put them into her pouch before smiling at Xiao Yan.
"How did you know that the claws would turn into this manner after being roasted by the 'Heavenly Flame'?" Xiao Yan glanced at Zi Yan. He asked a question somewhat uncertainly. Thinking back to Zi Yan's manner earlier, it was clear that she had already known that these things were useful to her. Otherwise, she would not have specifically dug out what seemed to be useless pale-white bone-like nails.
"I am also not certain. In any case, I just had the feeling that those things would be useful to me, so I extracted them." Zi Yan knit her delicate eyebrows, and replied with an uncertain tone in the face of Xiao Yan's question.
Xiao Yan was startled upon hearing this. His frown quickly deepened. Turning his head slightly, he shifted his gaze to the mysterious Magical Beast corpse that had been disemboweled. He muttered, "Don't tell me that you are really related to this thing? Unfortunately, this thing has already been dead for far too long. One can no longer make out its shape. Otherwise, we might be able to guess something based on its appearance."
"In any case, it won't be of the same species as me. Moreover, I feel a great discomfort for it. I even felt extremely cheerful when I saw it had been split apart by you." Zi Yan curled her lips as she replied.
"Cheerful? Don't tell me that this Magical Beast's original form is an enemy of your species?" Xiao Yan was stunned as he inquired.
"I have no idea. I am not even aware of what kind of Magical Beast I am. Who cares what it is?" Zi Yan knit her brows and replied.
"Forget it, let's not bother about what it actually is. Girl, next, you should be telling me how to deal with this dried corpse, right?" Xiao Yan changed the topic and smiled. He spoke after seeing that Zi Yan was unwilling to talk about it.
"Burn it. Burn the ugly flesh. There will naturally be something that you want." Zi Yan waved her hand, and responded in a simple manner.
Xiao Yan was startled when he heard this. He immediately ceased speaking any nonsense as he curled his hand. A suction force surged out and pulled a large piece of dense white flesh in front of him. He immediately opened his mouth and spat out a jade green flame. It spurted out of his mouth and wrapped around that cluster of flesh.
Waves of frighteningly high temperatures spread out after coming into contact with the flesh. Finally, all of them entered that piece of flesh.
The dense, white meat repeatedly emitted a 'chi chi' sound as the high temperature pervaded it. Its size also repeatedly shrank under the flame. This burning continued for around five minutes or so before the table-sized flesh turned to the size of a head. Its white color had also disappeared. A green-red gradually surged onto it.
This kind of green-red color became increasingly denser as the flame burned with greater intensity. In the end, it completely agglomerated together. This agglomeration transformed into a drop of green-red blood in front of Xiao Yan's joyous eyes. It seeped out of the flesh, passing through the flame to drip down.
Xiao Yan's eyes were sharp and his hands were nimble as he swiftly took out a high grade jade bottle from his Storage Ring. After which, he captured the drop of green-red blood in it.
Xiao Yan sighed in relief only after obtaining that drop of blood. He raised his head and glanced at the burning jade-green flame. After this drop of green-red blood fell, the flesh disappeared into nothing within the flame. Not even a piece of ash remained behind.
With a gentle flick of Xiao Yan's finger, the jade-green flame in front of him slowly disappeared. He lowered his head to glance at the jade bottle in his hand. His nose gently sniffed at the mouth of the bottle. A rich wild and violent energy, that caused him feel shocked, followed his nostrils and entered his body. The shocked Xiao Yan hurriedly used his Dou Qi to suppress it. He continued to be busy for awhile before he resolve that wild, violent energy with a 'Heavenly Flame'.
After that wild and violent seed in the pure energy was dispersed by the refining power of the 'Heavenly Flame', that exquisitely powerful energy began to circulate. It quietly spread into Xiao Yan's limbs and bones.
The scattering of this energy caused caused Xiao Yan's heart to be startled. He suddenly realized that the physical strength that was contained within the muscles in his skin seemed to have quietly increased a little. Although this increase was extremely minute, it was still clearly sensed by Xiao Yan.
"This blood… actually possesses the special effect of strengthening one's physical strength?' Xiao Yan recovered, and threw his gaze at the jade bottle in his hand. A heat gradually surged into his eyes. Normally, a person's physical strength could only rely on one's talent and effort. It was unexpected that this mysterious green-red blood would possess such a mysterious effect.
Xiao Yan inhaled a breath of cool air. His heart once again felt shocked by the mysterious Magical Beast corpse. He immediately laughed as he suddenly sucked with his hand. A large piece of meat was pulled over and the Glazed Lotus Heart Flame was summoned once again.
After personally sensing this mysterious green-red blood's beauty, Xiao Yan would naturally not think that this corpse was just a pile of completely useless rotten flesh. Over the next hour, he spent a great effort to burn that pile of pale-white flesh with the Glazed Lotus Core Flame.
Xiao Yan had obtained more green-red blood through this burning. However, the only thing that caused him to feel slightly dissatisfied was that he had only managed to refine a mere five drops of green-red blood even after burning half a room of flesh.
Xiao Yan studied the jade bottle with the five drops of green-red blood. They did not merge together despite being stored in the same place. He could only helplessly shake his head. With a wave of his hand, he made the Glazed Lotus Heart Flame in front of him disappear. He parted his mouth and smiled when he put the jade bottle into his Storage Ring. It was unexpected that this Magical Beast Corpse, which the Black Emperor Sect saw as worthless, would actually end up being turned into such a thing in his hands. From the way Xiao Yan saw it, the value of these five green-red drops of blood were definitely not worth any less than the jade-like bone wings. From a certain perspective, they might even be greater than the latter…
This liquid blood contained an extremely wild and violent energy. From the way the interior of Xiao Yan's body churned after he had inhaled a single breath earlier, one could not carelessly consume this thing. Otherwise, it would definitely cause one to end up with the miserable end of having one's body burst apart. However, this was not considered a difficult point of view from Xiao Yan's perspective. He was an alchemist and had experienced such wild and violent seeds in pure energy before. As long as he was given sufficient time, he would definitely be able to absorb all of the drops of blood. At that time, how high would the physical strength of his body soar?
Therefore, Xiao Yan did not waste the five medicinal pills this time around. If that old fellow Mo Tian Xing knew that Xiao Yan had gained such a great benefit from this dried corpse, it was likely that he would be so furious that he would end up vomiting blood on the spot. This thing was something that their Black Emperor Sect had studied a countless number of times. However, they did not find anything unusual other than its jade-like bone wings were extraordinary…
Yet, it was these things, that they thought had no value, that allowed Xiao Yan to gain a great bargain without reason.
Xiao Yan slowly recovered from his excitement. His gaze once again swept over the remaining shriveled head and the enormous skin. He involuntarily licked his lips. Until this moment, the most precious thing, the Monster Core, had yet to appear.
Normally speaking, a Monster Core that had agglomerated all of a Magical Beasts energy would not simply just disappear out of the blue. In other words, either the shriveled head or the skin that remained should hide the important Monster Core.
Xiao Yan involuntarily swallowed a mouthful of saliva. He thought about how the Monster Core of a fierce beast, that had been about to breakthrough to the eighth rank, was about to land in his hand. His entire body felt hot.
