"She should get lost, a child shouldn't create more trouble for their elders. We still want to witness the production process of a pill. If the pill refinement process fails because of you, can you shoulder that responsibility?"
No one believed in Gu Ruoyun's words. After all, from what they could tell, Elder Feng was much more experienced when compared to this little girl. If there was anyone here who stands a chance to successfully refine a pill, it would be Elder Feng!
Who does she think she is to criticize and give orders to Elder Feng with such audacity. If she really causes Elder Feng to fail, she would become a criminal of the mainland!
"Master," Gu Ruoyun glanced at Elder Feng who looked indifferent and calmly said, "Remember to put up your defenses to avoid getting hurt. Don't worry about anyone else."
Bai Zhongtian immediately raised his shields and, at the same time, Gao Lin did not hesitate to order everyone else in the Medicine Sect to raise their shields as well.
Even he does not know why he trusts Gu Ruoyun so much.
"Simply a bunch of idiots!"
The little Vermillion Bird pursed her adorable little lips and stared disdainfully over at the old men who were flaunting their seniority. She raised an elegant brow and said, "Don't blame my Master for not advising you, it was you who had refused to listen to her words. Should an injury occur, don't blame anyone else but yourselves."
Just as the little Vermillion Bird spoke, a loud and powerful blast suddenly exploded from the center of the plaza. The aftermath of the explosion was scattered everywhere, it had even caused the plaza's ground to rise and fall, turning the whole place into a ruin in an instant!
Feng Xiaxiao suddenly rose to her feet as her beautiful eyes stared in shock at the wreckage in front of her. Her gorgeous gaze pierced through the thick smoke and turned towards a flash of green robes which were steadfast like a bamboo tree while her pretty hand tightly gripped the edge of her chair!
It had exploded!
Elder Feng's pill refining process has actually generated an explosion!
How was this woman so certain that the pill would explode when Elder Feng increased the flames?
The entire plaza reverted back to silence after the explosion. After a long pause, the smokey plaza erupted with loud chatters. Everyone had an unmasked sense of shock in their voice.
"It exploded, it had really exploded! How could this be? Elder Feng has such great power yet how could that little girl have predicted the outcome so accurately?"
"I feel as if my thighs have been paralyzed from the explosion! This is the extent of the power within a pill that even I, a Martial Honor, could end up sustaining such a heavy injury!"
"Hehe, it's a good thing that I had the foresight to raise my shields so my injuries aren't too severe."
As the smoke cleared, the ruined plaza slowly came into view.
Due to the magnitude of the explosion, most of the cultivators who had not utilized their shields had received heavy injuries. Of course, aside from the ones Gu Ruoyun had helped, only the cultivators from the Medicine Sect and Wind Valley had remained unscathed!
The Medicine Sect's members had raised their shields due to Gao Lin's orders, as for Wind Valley...
Their powers were simply far too great! The magnitude of an explosion like this was not enough to harm a cultivator at the rank of a Martial Saint and above!
However, everyone else was not so lucky. Some of the more severe cases had their limbs blasted from their bodies. When Gao Lin became aware of this, he immediately ordered the Medicine Sect's doctors to send the casualties away to receive treatment.
This was the consequences of their disbelief towards Gu Ruoyun's words.
"Impossible. This is impossible."
Elder Feng stared foolishly at the shattered medicine cauldron. His eyes filled with disbelief and he could not understand it. I had clearly done everything according to order so how could I have failed in the refinement process?

"Elder Feng, what is the meaning of this?"
Feng Xiaoxiao glanced at the dazed Elder Feng as she asked. Her clear and light voice was emotionless. Similarly, her peerless face did not show any emotion either as she questioned, "How could you have failed?"
Prior to their arrival, Feng Xiaoxiao had absolute confidence in Elder Feng and she never expected that he would fail!
"Eldest Lady, I've let you down." Elder Feng returned to his senses and he turned towards Feng Xiaoxiao, joined his fists and bowed. An apologetic look appeared on his elderly features as he said, "If Wind Valley's doctors had been here, perhaps I might have been able to refine this pill successfully. Unfortunately, Bai Zhongtian and Gao Lin's mental energies were too weak. Furthermore, at the most crucial point, Bai Zhongtian had abandoned the pill refinement process and released his shield, causing the explosion 1 ."
He had resolutely believed that they could not have failed based on his powers yet they had still failed in the end! Upon closer inspection, the reason for the failure was that his two helpers were far too useless! If Wind Valley's doctors had been in their place, the outcome would have been completely different!
"It was you who had failed to refine the pill yet you're now pushing the blame onto others. Is this the way of the mighty Wind Valley cultivators?" Gu Ruoyun swept her gaze towards Elder Feng as her light voice carried a thick sense of disdain.
Elder Feng's expression changed several times and his eyes turned gloomy, "Miss Gu, I recognize that you may be a genius and that you've grown at an exceptional speed in the outside world. However, you have absolutely no knowledge in pill refinement yet you continue to criticize me. Earlier on, if you had not asked Bai Zhongtian to raise his shield, this pill refinement process would have been a success!"
Gu Ruoyun smiled calmly, "While it's true that I may not be very knowledgeable about the pill refinement process, I'm a little bit more knowledgeable than you."
The silenced crowd erupted into an enormous commotion when they heard these words.
No one would dare to believe that anyone could fake it to this level.
Is she saying that her knowledge of pill refinement surpasses Elder Feng's? The crowd thought in unison. What kind of a joke is this? What kind of a place is the First City? Wind Valley is placed at the middle tier of power in the First City yet she still dares to act like a pretentious prick in front of Elder Feng?
Is she not afraid of being struck by lightning?
"Gu girl," Gao Lin's expression changed a little and his eyes filled with anxiety. From his point of view, despite how powerful Gu Ruoyun's spiritual beast was, it could not be compared to a cultivator from the First City so she would do well not to offend them.
He hurriedly shot Bai Zhongtian a look and tried to get the Holy Doctor to stop Gu Ruoyun.
However, Bai Zhongtian did not seem to see it that way at all. His elderly face was full of smiles as he stared proudly at the green figure who was illuminated by the setting sun.
Gao Lin laughed bitterly.
How could I forget, this old fellow, Bai Zhongtian, has never been afraid. Even if the Heavenly Emperor himself were to appear, he would cover it up as much as possible! Why should he speak up and stop Gu Ruoyun just because of a threat from Wind Valley's cultivators?
Elder Feng chuckled, his smile was an ugly sight to behold and carried a hint of malice, "Gu girl, you seem to be rather confident in your abilities. Since that's the case, I wonder if you'll succeed in refining the pill?"
Hearing this, everyone present could not help but laugh.
Even the elders who were standing behind Feng Xiaoxiao could not stop themselves from speaking, "Elder Feng, why are you being so calculative towards a little girl? Since she says that you can't be compared to her, let her be. You won't lose out on much anyways. In contrast, haggling over every ounce will only make others believe that you, an elder, are bullying someone younger than you. Wind Valley would never stand up for such a thing."
