Stars lit up the night sky . Like flowers competing with one another in beauty, they shone as brightly as they could to outdo the others .
When the thick clouds dispersed, the moonlight spilled on the ground like a shy girl’s veil, giving everything a stunning, cold silvery sheen…
Much like the woman who walked out of the Dragon Gate . She was as cold and as aloof as autumn chrysanthemums .
Ning Zhao was excited, but she did not show her excitement . Even though she had achieved a breakthrough to the Internal Organs Realm, she was still a little cold and aloof .
She walked across the lake slowly . The night wind stirred the ends of her dress .
Everyone nearby felt a powerful pressure .
A pressure from a realm .
Lv Dongxuan’s white robe was fluttering . The gold beaded necklace around his neck was shining under the moonlight . It was especially eye-catching and brilliant .
He felt he was suffocating due to the powerful pressure released by Ning Zhao .
A cultivator’s first realm was Qi Core .
A cultivator’s second realm was the Internal Organs .
And Ning Zhao was currently in the Internal Organs Realm!
Lv Mudui even knocked the bamboo cane on the ground . His beard blowing, he flushed and opened his mouth widely, showing his front teeth with a wide gap in the middle .
To his surprise, being affected by Ning Zhao’s energy, the Spirit Qi in his body was tumbling out of control…
As if Ning Zhao was an insurmountable mountain .
“An oppression caused by a cultivator in the Internal Organs Realm?”
Lv Mudui sucked air through gritted teeth .
Ning Zhao stepped on the lake surface . Since she had just realized the breakthrough, her force was out of her control .
When she took one step on the water surface, the churning of her Spirit Qi caused a several-foot-high water column in the lake .
“Young Master . ”
Ning Zhao came up to Lu Fan, still containing her excitement .
Lu Fan, smiling, flicked his fingers . A wisp of Spirit Qi was released and flowed into Ning Zhao’s body .
Immediately, the restless Spirit Qi in Ning Zhao’s body became stable .
“It’s hard to keep improving . It’s even harder to keep improving in cultivation . ”
“Talent is not the only determining factor . An indomitable spirit and unshakable resolution are actually more important . ”
“Without those, no matter how talented you are, other cultivators with an indomitable spirit and unshakable resolution would sooner or later surpass you,” Lu Fan said slowly .
The wind stirred his hair and his clothes .
Ning Zhao was astounded after hearing this . A smile showed on her face that was covered in blood .
“Yes . ”
Lu Fan nodded .
He raised his hand, and blue Spirit Qi started to gather in his palm .
With a gentle sweep, the Spirit Qi flowed into the middle of Ning Zhao’s forehead .
What Lu Fan gave her was the cultivation method for Internal Organs Realm .
“The Internal Organs Realm aims to refine the five organs and discover the treasures in the human body . The five organs are the five treasures . This is a key process for a mortal being to transcend . When the ultimate level of the Internal Organs is achieved, elemental Spirit Qi will be produced . Fire comes from the heart, metal from the lungs, earth from the spleen, and so on… Elemental Spirit Qi could significantly increase your fighting power . You won’t be able to brew storms in rivers and seas, but compared to ordinary people, you’ll be extraordinary,” Lu Fan explained .
Ning Zhao was immersed in the cultivation method for the Internal Organs Realm . She let her thoughts fly .
Lu Fan did not interrupt her .
It was essential to know well the cultivation method for the Internal Organs Realm . After all, the Internal Organs Realm was a process of building foundations . If things went wrong with the foundation, then how would a high-rise building be constructed?
Meanwhile, on the Dragon Gate, the little yellow jiao dragon also transformed . By taking in the Spirit Qi storm caused by Ning Zhao’s breakthrough to the Internal Organs Realm, the little yellow jiao dragon transformed into a heavenly dragon descendant immediately .
Lu Fan was delighted . The little yellow jiao dragon looked even more gorgeous . Its body was long and slim, and its wings looked especially stunning . When the now heavenly dragon descendant flapped its wings, a storm seemed to be brewing .
It seemed to notice the look on Lu Fan’s face .
The little yellow jiao dragon stood straight on the Dragon Gate, flapping its wings, as if it was befriending Lu Fan .
Lu Fan burst out laughing . It was a cute dragon .
He shifted his consciousness .
The giant bowl filled with the black jiao dragon’s blood floated in the air before Lu Fan .
The little yellow jiao dragon’s body suddenly became stiff . Feeling the jiao dragon’s energy from the bowl, it hurried to cover its face with its stunning wings .
Lu Fan waved at Ni Yu, who was far away .
“Pot,” Lu Fan said .
A black pot flew up to Lu Fan immediately .
Fortunately, Ni Yu had lots of herbs in stock to refine elixirs . So Lu Fan did not have to purchase any .
He collected several chrysanthemum petals . Heaven Facing Spiritual Chrysanthemums were waving .
Under the moonlight, Lu Fan poured the black jiao dragon’s blood into the pot and then threw in the herbs and the chrysanthemum petals .
Then, he flicked his fingers .
A wisp of Spirit Qi flew under the suspended black pot and started to burn . Heated by the hot fire, the bottom of the black pot turned red immediately .
“Young Master… Are you refining elixirs?” Ni Yu asked, wiping saliva off the corner of her mouth .
Sitting in the Thousand Blades Chair, Lu Fan threw her a glance . His hair and his clothes were blowing .
Why did she ask even though she knew the answer?
Lu Fan did not reply . He turned his head to continue refining elixirs .
Refining Dragon’s Blood Elixirs was much more complicated than refining Gathering Qi Elixirs .
Standing in the distance, Ni Yu took a Gathering Qi Elixir, which still felt warm, out of the satchel at her waist . She put it into her mouth and chewed it as if it was a sugar-coated bean .
At the sight of this, the corners of Lv Mudui, Lv Dongxuan, and others’ mouths twitched .
Only this girl would eat precious Gathering Qi Elixirs like eating sugar-coated beans .
However, they could do nothing about it . After all, it was Ni Yu who refined those Gathering Qi Elixirs .
Even if she dipped her elixirs in sauces, they could not blame her for anything .
The process of refining Dragon’s Blood Elixirs did not last too long . After all, Lu Fan used Spirit Qi fire to heat the black pot .
Soon, the dragon blood in the pot started to evaporate, and black steam spread all over .
That was the evil energy of the black jiao dragon and its grievance .
Anyone would have a grievance if someone cut his tail open to bleed him in order to fill a giant bowl with his blood .
Dong . Dong . Dong…
In the black pot…
The loud clatters sounded like an explosion or that of big raindrops pattering against the windowpane during a storm .
Ni Yu was even more curious because she smelled a rich aroma in the air .
It smelled like duck blood and vermicelli soup!
Ni Yu’s eyes lit up .
It went quiet in the pot again .
Lu Fan waved his sleeve .
The black pot fell on the ground right away .
“Ni, go to fetch the Dragon’s Blood Elixirs in the pot,” Lu Fan said .
“Yes,” Ni Yu replied immediately .
Then she ran to the black pot excitedly .
She did not mind that they were still hot . She just could not wait . She blew on them . Then, she took a satchel and put all of the red elixirs in the pot inside .
“Young Master, eighteen elixirs have been refined!”
“Young Master, we have a large output as expected!”
Ni Yu’s face flushed from the excitement . She ran up to Lu Fan to give him the satchel .
She did not sneak even one elixir . Without Young Master’s permission, she would not dare .
She was afraid Young Master would beat her to death .
Lu Fan weighed the elixirs in his hand . He picked one of them out . The color was blood red and had patterns similar to what jiao dragons had on their bodies . There were three lines in all…
They were first-grade three-patterned elixirs!
Since he used the black jiao dragon’s blood, these Dragon’s Blood Elixirs were only first-grade elixirs .
If it had been a heavenly dragon’s blood, together with some top-class herbs, he would have refined second-grade elixirs . The higher a heavenly dragon’s level, the more valuable its blood was, and the higher the grade of the refined elixirs would be .
First-grade three-patterned elixirs were already of relatively good quality .
“Give one elixir to Tianji Pavilion and one to Lil Shuang . Take the others to my father,” Lu Fan said .
Ni Yu responded, “Ah?”
Lu Fan raised his eyebrow . He threw Ni Yu a look . “What?”
“Young Master, that’s it? Won’t you give Sister Ning one? She just achieved a breakthrough . And Sister Yi Yue . She had been cultivating so hard . And me . I’ve been working so hard to refine elixirs…” Ni Yu said .
Lu Fan leaned on the back of his new wheelchair .
“Take one if you want, but Ning Zhao and Yi Yue wouldn’t need them . The benefits of the Dragon’s Blood Elixirs are limited if there is an abundant amount of Spirit Qi in the Qi Core . They’ll just be wasted . ”
The Thousand Blades Chair turned automatically . The silver wheelchair was like the bright moon in the night . Lu Fan’s fluttering white clothes looked pretty elegant .
The wheelchair moved slowly toward the second floor of White Jade City Pavilion .
Very soon, Lu Fan disappeared into the dark night .
Ni Yu was so excited that she beamed . Her eyes were like two crescent moons .
She took one Dragon’s Blood Elixir happily and threw it to Lv Dongxuan .
Lv Dongxuan’s heart beat faster . He took it immediately and wiped it with his clothes with care .
Ni Yu then ran to the large-headed Nie Shuang—who was practicing fist methods under chrysanthemums—and gave him a Dragon’s Blood Elixir too .
Then, despite the pain of seasickness…
Ni Yu found a small boat .
As soon as she got onto the boat, she took out a Dragon’s Blood Elixir happily and put it into her mouth .
She crunched the elixir right away .
After feeling the aftertaste, she frowned .
“It needs a coat of sugar…” Ni Yu murmured .
As soon as she said that…
The elixir instantly turned into a warm current in her stomach . The Spirit Qi in her Qi Core suddenly boiled as if catalyst had been added into it .
Ni Yu’s eyes narrowed to slits as if she could not take it anymore .
Curling her lip, she lifted her butt .
A hot airflow gushed out as loud as a dragon’s roar .
Ripples formed on the lake surface, while the boat swayed as if it had been propelled forward . The boat turned into a white light and sailed out at high speed . Ni Yu couldn’t help but scream her heart out . The boat looked like the brightest shooting star in the night sky…
On the second floor of White Jade City Pavilion .
Lu Fan was sitting in his wheelchair near the railing .
He shook his head after hearing Ni Yu’s loud screams .
Dragon’s Blood Elixirs were used to build foundations, so the less Spirit Qi in the Qi Core, the better .
The more Spirit Qi in the Qi Core, the more intense the reaction to the elixirs would be .
Ni Yu took so many Gathering Qi Elixirs together with this Dragon’s Blood Elixir…
She was indeed Young Master’s favorite .
Lu Fan tapped his fingers on the carved wooden railing .
A soft wind blew by, while he was looking at the glistening water surface and then to the movement of the clouds .
He turned 30 Available Points into Spirit Qi with his mind .
Before him, a system prompt popped up .
[Spirit Qi storage has reached 1,000 wisps, the maximum of Refined Qi Level 2 . Level up?]
Lu Fan instantly stopped tapping .
A smile tugged at the corners of his lips .
With his hands behind his back, Lu Changkong was walking by the white jade rail along the lakeside of Beiluo Lake . He felt the soft breeze brush gently against his cheeks .
Looking at Lake Island, he could vaguely see it shrouded in a thick fog .
Luo Yue was walking next to Lu Changkong with his knife .
“Old Luo, Luo Cheng led our soldiers into the Dragon Gate . How is it going?” Lu Changkong asked .
“About 800 Beiluo soldiers went through the Dragon Gate . But 300 of them died or got injured . Only 11 or 12 managed to gather wisps of Spirit Qi in their Qi Core,” Luo Yue explained with pity .
“It’s not so easy to be a cultivator . It’s beyond our imagination . ”
“Talent matters a lot,” Luo Yue said .
Lu Changkong nodded slightly . “Even martial arts practitioners need great talent to succeed, let alone cultivation…”
All of a sudden…
Lu Changkong raised his eyebrow .
He looked back at the lake .
He saw a white wave approaching at high speed like a white dragon flying at night .
Lu Changkong took a closer look . He found it was a boat at the front of the wave .
On the boat, a naïve-looking teenage girl was curling her lip . Her hair was blowing wildly . The airflow behind her lifted the ends of her clothes .
Luo Yue saw this too . He could not help but exclaim in surprise .
“That’s truly Young Master’s maid . Even the maid Ni Yu is so extraordinary . ”
However, Lu Changkong’s brow twitched .
Why did he feel something was not so right?
