"Yes, Eldest Lady."

Elder Li joined his fists and bowed with reverence. His eyes then turned to look at Gu Ruoyun who was heading towards the middle of the plaza.

"Little girl, are you certain that you want to refine the pill?" Elder Feng squinted his eyes, "Let me give you a piece of advice, don't cause hardships for yourself! Even I had needed others to help me in the pill  refining process 1 . Based on your powers, you won't be able to succeed at all! When that time comes and you embarrass yourself in front of this large audience, don't blame me for not bringing it up earlier."

Gu Ruoyun paused in her steps and turned towards Elder Feng. She smiled as she said, "Embarrass myself? Had you not done exactly that just moments ago? Oh, right, I've forgotten. You had pushed the reason for your failure in the refining process onto my Master! You then absolved yourself from the blame. This is why I want you to understand that your failure was really due to your own inability and had nothing to do with my Master at all!"

Gu Ruoyun had never intended to refine the pill in the beginning! However, she has no other choice but to do so now!

She knows that if she does not do this, her Master's reputation will be dragged through the mud. Many would then push the blame for the failed pill refinement process onto her Master's head!

Even though her Master was not too concerned about this, she refused to allow anyone to humiliate him!


Elder Feng scoffed icily and spoke in a voice filled with ridicule, "I'd like to see if you can succeed! If you succeed, not only will I no longer ask you to be my disciple in the future, I'll even ask you to be my master!"

She won't be successful anyway! Therefore, my promise does not count for much.

Under a shady tree not too far away, a man dressed in peach blossom pink robes gently fanned himself with his impish features raised into a smile. His eyes twinkled with a peculiar light just like a peach blossom.

"Elder Feng is far too savage."

He then shook his head as his smile became even more impish until it was unimaginably beautiful.

"He has already lost by making that vow in front of Xiao Yun'er!"

Refining pills?

This may be something which was particularly difficult for others but for Gu Ruoyun, it was just as simple as eating a bowl of rice or drinking water!

One could compete against her in almost anything except for two things.

Spiritual beasts, and... Refining pills!

Otherwise, it would only result in angering oneself to death!

"Gu girl."

Gao Lin nearly spouted careless words at the sight of Gu Ruoyun who was walking towards the center of the plaza. In the end, he had swallowed those words and was left with, "If you need any assistance, I'll do everything I can to help you."

Gu Ruoyun gently stroked her chin as she glanced at the medicine cauldron which had been blown to smithereens. She then replied calmly, "You don't need to do anything else, just prepare the medicine cauldron for me."

"Alright, I'll send someone to do that."

The result of a failed pill refinement process was an exploded medicine cauldron!

Therefore, prior to this, Gao Lin had already prepared a few other medicine cauldrons! He then issued the order and, very soon, a Medicine Sect disciple brought a new medicine cauldron over and placed it in front of Gu Ruoyun.

"Little girl, can you do it?"

Bai Zhongtian moved closer to Gu Ruoyun and spoke softly to her, "If it's not possible, we should just concede now. Many have already failed on the mainland so there's nothing to be embarrassed about if you fail."

Gu Ruoyun did not respond to Bai Zhongtian. Instead, she only smiled at him before she turned away and took the pill formula from Gao Lin's hand.

"This... This is..."

However, once she read the contents of the pill formula, Gu Ruoyun became stunned.

Chapter 957: Supreme Mystery Pill (8)

A Supreme Mystery Pill!

It goes without saying that Gao Lin had been considerably lucky to casually pick up a pill formula which turned out to be a Supreme Mystery Pill!

The Supreme Mystery Pill, as the name suggests, can only be used when one was at the rank of a Martial Supreme! However, this pill was very different from the other pills which can be used when one was at the Martial Supreme rank! It can allow a high-level Martial Supreme to breakthrough to the rank of a Martial Saint!

An immediate breakthrough to become a Martial Saint, it was unimaginable!

If news of this pill were to get out, it would certainly attract a lot of looters!  Thought Gu Ruoyun . It's a good thing that this pill formula had landed in the Medicine Sect's hands. Based on my survey of the entire mainland, not a lot of organizations can go up against the Medicine Sect!

Nevertheless, the First City was an exception!

After all, the First City does not count as a force on the mainland and was a whole other mysterious world altogether.

"What do you think, will you succeed?"

Bai Zhongtian became anxious when he saw the astonished look on Gu Ruoyun's face. His elderly gaze continued to stare at her unblinkingly.

Gu Ruoyun took a deep breath, returned to her senses and held the pill formula in her hands before smiling gently, "I'm not too sure myself. I've only managed to look through a few books at one point and I've not actually managed to refine a pill before so I can't guarantee that I would succeed."

Naturally, she had said all of this for everyone in the plaza to hear.

If they ever found out that she has the ability to refine pills, they would definitely be able to guess that she has a few pills on hand! If the First City's members were to find out about this, she would never have a moment's peace in the future!

"So, she has never refined a pill before? She had spoken with such confidence that I actually thought she was a Pill Master."

"Pill Master? How can this be! It's not like we don't know the Holy Doctor's abilities. This little girl is his disciple, that is also to say, he would have taught her everything that she knows! However, I've never heard of the Holy Doctor becoming a Pill Master!"

"Hehe, do all of you still not understand the situation? This little girl was happy that Elder Feng had pushed the blame onto the Holy Doctor so she has stepped out to give it a try. However, she does not have a hundred percent certainty that she would actually be able to refine the pill! Besides, so what if she fails? This is something that not even Elder Feng was able to do. If she fails, no one would laugh at her."

Amongst the crowd, many doctors began discussing amongst themselves. However, their eyes never left the figure who was standing in the middle of the plaza.

Even though they do not believe in Gu Ruoyun's abilities, they still hoped that a miracle would happen.

If she was successful, it would raise an enormous commotion on the mainland! Even the Holy Doctor's position would become even stronger than before and the First City would try to curry favor with her as well!

Bai Zhongtian's eyes remained full of suspicion. However, he did not say anything more and only instructed her, "You must take care of your own safety. If you really find that it's impossible, give up. Nothing is more important than your life!"

"Don't worry."

Gu Ruoyun smiled, "If anything goes wrong, I'll stop the process."

Bai Zhongtian stepped back after he heard her reassurance. However, the anxiety in his eyes remained. He refused to turn his gaze away from Gu Ruoyun and his entire heart was on full alert.

Gu Ruoyun, however, no longer looked at him. She focused her eyes upon the medicine cauldron and slowly exhaled, "Supreme Mystery Pill? Based on my current level of power, refining this pill wouldn't be a problem. However, I don't know if this medicine cauldron can withstand the power generated from the Supreme Mystery Pill!"

If I could take the medicine cauldron from the Ancient Divine Pagoda out instead, my chances of success would become a hundred percent. Unfortunately, I most definitely can't allow the Ancient Divine Pagoda to appear before the eyes of the world. Hence, I have no choice but to use this medicine cauldron...

"However, if I do manage to refine this Supreme Mystery Pill, Master will be able to breakthrough to the rank of a Martial Saint."

Gu Ruoyun's eyes sparkled slightly at the thought of this...
