Gao Lin laughed bitterly, "This was why, despite all the research by the Medicine Sect's experts for more than a month, that we had been unable to uncover anything else!"

If the procedure and methods had been complete, why would he possibly share the pill formula at all? There was no use in keeping a pill formula if one was unable to refine a pill from it.

"Oh, that's right. If I remember this correctly, Elder Feng from Wind Valley is a physician as well."

The old man named Bo Ru seemed to remember something all of a sudden and became very excited.

"Wind Valley is not like the outside world. Doctors in Wind Valley must know the method of refining pills. I dare say that if there's anyone here who has the best chance to refine the pill, that person would be Elder Feng."

Hearing this, the crowd's eyes lit up.

Even if they were unable to successfully refine a pill in the end, if they had the opportunity to witness the birth of a pill, it would still be a scene that they would never forget for the rest of their lives.

"Hehe." Hearing this, Elder Feng chuckled as his face filled with arrogance, "You're right, I do know a bit about refining pills. Since you've all begged for me, let me grant you the good fortune of witnessing the birth of a pill!"

As he said this, Elder Feng seems to remember something and turned his gaze towards Gu Ruoyun.

"Little girl, I know that you are a doctor so I think that you must be greatly interested in refining pills."

Isn't that just nonsense?

Who would make the trip here if it had not been for the sake of pills?

Of course, the crowd would only dare to say this in their hearts. They did not dare show any sign of disrespect on their faces. 

"So," Elder Feng paused as a light flashed in his eyes, "If you agree to become my disciple and join Wind Valley, I will give you all of my knowledge in refining pills!" 

To tell the truth, he has never refined a pill before!

However, he once had the good fortune to receive a book on refining pills. All of the knowledge he has was from that book but he never had the chance to practice.

At that moment, everyone stared at Gu Ruoyun with envy.

All his knowledge in refining pills? This was a treasure that was within the sight of every doctor but was still out of reach. They never thought that this little girl would have such good fortune to receive Elder Feng's good graces. He had not hesitated to utilize such a treasured knowledge as a gift in order to entice her to join Wind Valley.

If they were in her place, they would probably join Wind Valley without hesitation.

Gao Lin wrinkled his brows. Honestly, he did not wish for Gu Ruoyun to join Wind Valley. If she becomes a member of Wind Valley, she would no longer hold the post as the Holy Doctor's disciple.

"Join Wind Valley?" Gu Ruoyun shrugged her shoulders and replied casually, "I've told you just now, I'm not interested. Besides, I already have a Master so I can't become your disciple."


She actually rejected his offer!

Everyone stared at Gu Ruoyun in shock. Where does this little girl find the gall to reject Wind Valley's olive branch time and time again?

Only Bai Zhongtian's face had remained smiling throughout the entire time as he stared proudly at Gu Ruoyun.  That's my disciple! She would never discard her Master no matter the temptations or benefits that comes her way!

"Sigh." Gao Lin spoke with a hint of envy, "Holy Doctor, you've accepted a very good disciple."

"Of course."

Bai Zhongtian looked very complacent, this little girl was his pride! With such a precious disciple, he would be satisfied for the rest of his life.

Elder Feng's expression sank. "Do you not wish to become a Pill Master?" He asked with a gloomy look in his eye. "As long as you become my disciple, I would certainly give my all to help you!"

Gu Ruoyun smiled gently as she stared at Elder Feng's confident expression, "You're not a Pill Master so even if I become your disciple, you won't be able to teach me anything. Likewise, even if you do become a Pill Master, I won't be your disciple either."

Gu Ruoyun's response calmed Elder Feng down and a light flashed in his cloudy eyes.

"Little girl, one should not make such a statement too hastily. You may say that I can't be a Pill Master but I'll prove you wrong! When that time comes, let me know if you change your mind!"

Isn't this little girl unwilling to become my disciple because I'm not a Pill Master at this point? Just wait until I become a Pill Master, she probably won't have any objections then and would even ask to become my disciple!

Gu Ruoyun shrugged her shoulders and did not say much else. However, her half-smile made Elder Feng feel very uncomfortable! He resolved that he would make this little girl regret her rude and impetuous rejection!

The crowd stared as Elder Feng took a deep breath and clutched the pill formula in his hand. He then headed to the medicinal cauldron which had been placed at the center of the plaza. At this moment, his elderly features no longer displayed his previous arrogance, his face was now utterly solemn.

"After this, I'll refine a pill from this pill formula. However, this is my first time refining a pill so it's possible that I may not have complete control based on my level of power. Therefore, I'd like to ask Bai Zhongtian and Gao Lin to come to my side and help me!"

Elder Feng swept his eyes towards the crowd below before resting his gaze upon the Holy Doctor and Gao Lin.

Amongst all the attendees, the two of them were pretty powerful and only they would have the right qualities to assist Elder Feng!

Bai Zhongtian furrowed his brows and subconsciously turned towards Gu Ruoyun. When the crowd noticed the expression on his face, they were all filled with doubt. Why would the Holy Doctor ask for his disciple's opinion?

Even if this woman was lucky enough to obtain such a powerful spiritual beast, that does not mean that her power and medical skill would surpass the Holy Doctor's! Yet, the Holy Doctor would consult her at a time like this.

"Go ahead," Gu Ruoyun patted Bai Zhongtian's shoulder as she raised her brow and said, "Nothing will happen as long as I'm around."

These words dispelled the worries from Bai Zhongtian's heart.

After all, this little girl has the Ancient Divine Pagoda in the palm of her hands. Her words prove that no danger would come to him once he was in the pill refinement process! Even if anything bad were to happen, she would stop it in time!

Bai Zhongtian chuckled at the thought, "Since Elder Feng has extended an invitation to us, how can we refuse? Besides, there hasn't been a Pill Master on this mainland for so many years. If I could join in on the pill refining process, I'd have something to show off about in the future!"

After saying his piece, he no longer hesitated as he leaped across the crowd in front of him and arrived next to Elder Feng.

When Gao Lin saw how Bai Zhongtian has already joined in, he did not delay any further as well as he hurriedly made his way to the center of the plaza.

The entire plaza was now completely silent. It was so silent that one could hear the sound of a leaf falling to the ground.

All eyes were fixed upon the three elders in the middle of the plaza. Even their breathing has grown anxious.

Though there was no way they could join the pill refinement process, they were lucky enough to have the opportunity to witness the birth of a pill! This was something that every doctor on the mainland has been yearning to see for over ten thousand years.

"Gao Lin, give me that medicinal herb. Bai Zhongtian, I want you to do as I say."

Elder Feng's eyes were filled with a serious air as he delegated the tasks in a low voice.

After giving those orders, he began to refine the pill as the crowd watched...

It was sunset and the glow of the setting sun illuminated the entire plaza.

Elder Feng's elderly features were drenched in sweat as he ignited a flame beneath the medicine cauldron at the center of the plaza

"Eldest Lady, the Holy Doctor and the Medicine Sect's Sect Master don't seem to be of much help, even Elder Feng looks a little worried. May I ask why did you not take this pill formula back to Wind Valley so that all the doctors in Wind Valley could investigate this together?"

An elder, who was standing behind Feng Xiaoxiao, frowned as he asked this question. He simply could not understand her intentions! Based on Wind Valley's power, she only needs to ask and she would be able to take the pill formula from the Medicine Sect. Presumably, Gao Lin would not dare to reject them!

"No," Feng Xiaoxiao shook her head, "If anyone from the First City were to find out about Wind Valley's movements outside of the First City, it would spark great dissatisfaction towards Wind Valley. I can't take that risk! Besides, I believe in Elder Feng's power. Based on his abilities, he would certainly be able to refine the pill successfully even if it was the first time he has come into contact with pills!"

As she spoke, her refined and beautiful eyes turned towards Elder Feng who was now dripping with sweat. Her peerless face lit up with a smile.

"Elder Feng, I hope that you won't disappoint me! I also hope that the many years of cultivation at Wind Valley will come to fruition today!"

To the outside world's knowledge, Pill Masters have been extinct for over ten thousand years!

Then again, what kind of place was the First City? It was the hub for the most powerful cultivators on the mainland! Everyone knows that the higher one's cultivation level was, the longer their life would be. By the time someone reaches the rank of a Martial Supreme, they would be graced with a three-hundred-year lifespan!

What about Martial Saints?

They would certainly be able to live for much, much longer!

Besides, in the First City, the rank of Martial Saint was only the beginning! It was also the very bottom of the barrel!

Hence, most of the powerful cultivators in the First City were thousand-year-old elderly monsters! To these old monsters, a few thousand years was enough for them to uncover the secrets behind pill refinement!

Of course, this had nothing to do with Wind Valley but as luck would have it, not too long ago, a rival organization had managed to refine a pill! Even though that pill was only an average pill which helps one to restore spiritual energy!

However, in the middle of a fight between two opponents of the same level, if one side had been completely depleted of spiritual energy and another produces a pill to restore their energy, the result of the fight would have been determined then!

This was why Feng Xiaoxiao was so anxious for Elder Feng to successfully refine a pill!

The elder was about to say something else but when he saw the determined look on Feng Xiaoxiao's face, he kept his thoughts to himself. As an elder from Wind Valley, how could he not know the urgency in Feng Xiaoxiao's heart?

If they were still unable to refine a pill, Wind Valley would be overrun by that organization sooner or later. By then, her painstaking efforts for such a long time would come to nothing!


Xia Linyu walked towards Gu Ruoyun without any regard towards anyone around him. He furrowed his delicate brows and asked in a clear and lively voice, "Do you think he'll succeed?"

Gu Ruoyun shook her head and calmly replied, "He has indeed touched the threshold of the art of pill refinement but, unfortunately, he has merely touched the threshold. Of course, he might succeed in another two to three years."

Gu Ruoyun's heart was filled with surprise as she spoke.

After all, the art of pill refinement had been completely extinct on this mainland! She had been lucky enough to receive the Ancient Divine Pagoda and it was because of this that she has managed to learn the art of pill refinement! She never thought that anyone else would be able to touch the threshold of pill refinement on their own.

Is this the might of a powerful cultivator from the First City?

Gu Ruoyun gently stroked her chin. This was the first time that she has ever felt so much curiosity towards the First City! Perhaps that was where she was supposed to go! Only at that place where powerful cultivators were at every corner could she truly experience growth!

Xia Linyu has complete faith in Gu Ruoyun's abilities. Others may not be aware of it but he knows very well that Gu Ruoyun was a Pill Master!

However, when everyone else overheard the conversation between these two, they snorted with disdain as their faces filled with ridicule.

Even though Gu Ruoyun's abilities have surprised them, one cannot become a Pill Master based on talent alone! Even though she was the Holy Doctor's disciple! However, if she thinks that she has the right to dole out a point-by-point commentary simply because of her Master, she would be sorely mistaken!

Even the Holy Doctor did not dare to proclaim that Elder Feng would be unsuccessful in refining a pill. What confidence does she have to say such a thing?

Just then, Elder Feng, who had placed his full attention on the medicine cauldron, spoke up.

"Bai Zhongtian, come and help me."

Elder Feng wiped the cold sweat from his brow as he instructed Bai Zhongtian.

Bai Zhongtian was stunned before he murmured a question, "What should I do?"

"Lend me your mental energy! My powers are insufficient at the moment and I can't control the enormous flames during the pill refinement process. If I'm unable to control the pill, this medicine cauldron will explode. For the safety of so many people, I can only put in more effort!"

Elder Feng never thought that the pill refinement process would be so difficult! Unfortunately, Wind Valley's physicians had not come with them so he could only ask Bai Zhongtian and Gao Lin for help. If Wind Valley's physicians were in their place, perhaps he would have already refined the pill successfully.

He shook his head at the thought and sighed, "Physicians in the outside world aren't powerful enough. If this were a member of Wind Valley instead, would they even need to be instructed? I don't even know what I'm doing! Now, I can only settle for second best. I wonder if I'll succeed this time?"

What he meant was that if it had been one of Wind Valley's doctors in their place, he would most definitely have successfully refined the pill! If he were to fail in the end, it would all be due to the Holy Doctor and Gao Lin's lack of ability and would have nothing to do with him 1  !

These words that shirk Elder Feng's responsibility carved a cold smile on Gu Ruoyun's face. A true Pill Master would never push their failure in refining a pill onto others!


Bai Zhongtian was clearly unhappy but he could not ignore the big picture. He then instantly released his mental energy.

"If you increase the fire, I can guarantee that the medicine cauldron will explode in less than three minutes!" Gu Ruoyun laughed icily as she stared at Elder Feng and spoke in a light voice.

Her voice was crystal clear in the silent plaza and fell into the ears of everyone present.

Elder Feng furrowed his brows unhappily before he glanced at her and said, "Don't disturb me while I'm refining a pill, can you shoulder the responsibility if I should fail?"

Hearing this, the crowd was also filled with dissatisfaction. Their faces were filled with contempt as they said, "Miss Gu, the art of pill refinement is not the same as cultivation! While we recognize that you may be a genius, when it comes to medicine, us old folks are much more capable! You should stop butting in."

"That's right, so what if you're the Holy Doctor's disciple? In most cases, the older the doctor, the more abundant his experiences. Even we cannot tell if Elder Feng's methods are correct yet you insist on saying these things? Could it be that you feel unsatisfied at the sight of your Master stealing the spotlight?"
