Chapter 8: Xiao Zhihe, Dual Cultivation Time
An hour later, in the The Seven Apricot City, Situ House.
“Third brother, what did you say? You almost lost to the young master?”
Inside the Situ House, a thin man with cold eyelashes with the name Situ was wearing a black monastic robe and holding black prayer beads.
“He wants the black grasses? And told you to come ask me for them? Hmph, this guy is so arrogant, tell him to come get it himself!”
“Second brother, this…”
Yuchi put on a stern expression to make things difficult for him.
But the thin man signaled with his sleeve and chased Yuchi away, with a hint of evil smirk on his lips.
First level of the Opening Vein realm, but have the power to fight against a Harmonious Spirit cultivator, truly an interesting young lord.
Seven Apricot City, Nangong House.
“Master, this is the news this lowly servant have found out…”
Inside the Nangong House’s hall, a woman wearing a tightly fit dress was kneeling down.
“Hmm… This Ning Fan, to be able to find the medicinal antidotes for the lord, I cannot see through the mystery in this matter. Seven extreme yin poisons, seven extreme yang supplements, these medicinal ingredients were totally opposite. Could this dan really suppress the poison inside the lord… Loulan, you did a good job, take your leave…”
Nangong was the name of a middle-aged man with a feminine voice. Holding a picture of Ning Fan in his hand, he gently licked his lips.
“This person, could he be someone from the Sword World sent to harm the master or not…”
Seven Apricot City, Godly Void Pavilion.
“Done investigating? Who came to buy the one thousand years old peach tree today?”
Inside the Godly Void Pavilion,, a devilish woman asked with her soft voice. She was around the age of twenty, with a black silk veil covering her face, and a black bra along with a black skirt. Her skirt was a bit short, revealing her white legs.
“Just like master’s speculation, buying the “thousand years peach tree”, was not any of the three commanders of Han Yuanji. With the dan refining abilities of Nangong and Han Yuanji, they aren’t able to use a thousand years old medicinal ingredients. The one who bought this medicine was a young man at the first level Opening Vein, a new disciple of Han Yuanji.”
“Oh, really? First level Opening Vein?”
She held on Ning Fan’s portrait and expressed some interests.
“What else did he buy?”
“Dear master, he also bought one hundred years old Thunderous Ice Stone, and Fiery Rain Flower.”
“One thousand years old medicinal ingredient is used to create the “Four Revolutions Immortal Elixir”. Han Yuanji’s poison required this item… Thunderous Ice Stone and Fiery Rain Flower’s medicinal effects are not harmonious, and they cannot go into this medicine. But in the legends, there was a refining technique in the Immemorial Era to create a dan with two conflicting medicinal ingredients… These two things are meant for Han Yuanji’s Apricot Guard… Not simple, this person’s medicinal gift.. In the Rain World, not more than ten people exceed him… This person, is very interesting…”
The alluring devilish girl didn’t have any cultivation, but after hearing the ingredients, she immediately guessed Ning Fan’s motivation behind those medicines. Her medicinal knowledge was no less than Ning Fan’s immortal emperor memories!
Outside of the Seven Apricot City, a black robed young man tapped on a demon storage bag to release a bunch of Old Mices, and grinded his teeth:
“Hmph! My cauldron inside the All Pleasure School was taken away… But, cannot offend the old monster Han, I have to secretly retake the cauldron. As long as the young girl is still a virgin, no one can see her real physique…”
All of these things were not known to Ning Fan.
He went back to his palace, and brought along a large amount of medicinal ingredients to the Alchemy Refinement Court inside the palace.
The old monster was called Medicine Master Han by others, and was a renown Third Revolution Dan Refinement Master in the Yue Country. The cauldron for refining dan inside the palace was not ordinary. Inside the court, there was also a vein of frozen flame along with earth fire to refine the dan.
In the cultivation world, most cultivators only knew the superficiality of dan refinement, only very few genuine masters were aware of the real art.
Yuchi was not able to buy all of the ingredients today. The cures for the old man and the Apricot Guard could not be created. Ning Fan decided to create some Vein Opening Dan for Zhihe first.
In the end, the higher Zhihe’s cultivation, the stronger the effect of the dual cultivation method. Ning Fan’s heart had slowly accepted this dual yin and yang cultivation method, and was eager to try and see its effect…
Opening Vein Dan was a Second Revolution Immortal Dan, and many Harmonious Spirit experts knew how to create them. And Ning Fan had the memories of an Immortal Emperor, so it was not an issue for him to create refine these pills.
With an available earth fire to refine, the dan refinement master’s power consumption would almost be zero. But Ning Fan only had the power of a first level Opening Vein, so he was still worry that he wouldn’t be able to handle it.
“Royal Palace’s record of the dao of dan”… Nine Revolutions of the Rivers to achieve immortality, no need for prayers and meditations. Once this dao of the Royal Palace met the world, half a pot of wine would pierce through the hidden mountains…” (1)
The essence of Ancient Chaotic Grand Emperor’s dan refinement technique is in the “Nine Revolutions of the River”…
Ning Fan closed his eyes to remember the dan refinement memories of Ancient Chaotic. His finger channeled the black flame, and tried to taste the amazing dan manipulation art “Nine Revolutions of the River.”
“During the Immemorial Era, there were two grand dan refinement masters in the heaven and earth. One was the Supreme Old Lord, the other was the Yellow Emperor. There were two great secrets for dan refinement… One was the “Three Pure Dan Condensation”, and the other was the “Nine Revolutions of the River.”
He muttered while his fingertip continually drew the black flame in a circular motion around his body. After drawing the circle, he would be able to create a First Revolution Dan…
He closed his eyes and contemplated hard. After the time it takes for an incense stick to burn, he was able to draw two circles, and the fiery shadows lingered without dissipation.
Half an hour later, he drew three circles instantaneously, and finished with another round shadow in front of him.
An hour had passed, he was suddenly short of breath and quickly opened his eyes then pondered in silence.
He couldn’t create a fifth circle, because his cultivation was still too low. But with these four circles alone was enough for him to refine a Four Revolutions Immortal Dan. With just this dan refinement ability, there was no one that could compare with him in the Yue Country.
“Cauldron, open! Dan refinement!”
He struck the cauldron’s head and threw in a palmful of medicines, and used his weak cultivation to activate the frozen flame and earth fire to begin the long process of dan refinement.
Two hours later, seven parts of the ten parts medicinal ingredients were destroyed, and only three parts became dan, with ten pills in each.
His face became pale. He restored his magic power earlier just to expended it all again, so his mind was exhausted.
The seven destroyed ingredients were not because Ning Fan’s technique was insufficient, but because his power was not enough. The moment they were about to form into pills, he couldn’t suppress the power of the flames, so they tended to fail.
After failing the Two Revolution Dan so many times, it would be essentially impossible to refine the Four Revolution Dan for the old monster, unless Ning Fan improved his magical power first…
Putting the thirty Opening Vein dan into a jade bottle, Ning Fan quickly went back to his bedroom.
While outside, he suddenly stopped in his steps, because he faintly heard the sound of running water from the inside.
The little girl was taking a shower while singing a country song, as if she was in quite a good mood.
“Should I go in or not… If Zhihe was a bit older, then I could take the shower together with her…”
Ning Fan carrying the medicines and turned around, awkwardly touched his nose then shook his head and smile.
He wasn’t taking into account morality or traditional values, but simply wanted to leave a negative shadow in the girl’s heart.
He looked up at the rising moon, and suddenly, felt a little homesick. Wu Country, Hai Ning’s Ning Clan was several ten thousand miles away. My younger brother, Ning Gu, was locked in the Heavenly Beast Evil School, when will I be able to destroy this Evil School and save my brother?
This was too difficult, because even though he wasn’t the real young lord of the Seven Apricot City, and his cultivation was only of the Opening Vein Realm, far from sufficient to save his brother.
Asking the old monster to save his brother? Ning Fan bitterly smiled. For a few day he had asked around, and this Evil School was the most dangerous place in the nation. Why would old monster Han undertake such a dangerous task for just a lowly disciple.
Strength! I need more powerful strength!
“The more it is in the middle of the month, the moon became rounder.Wu and Yue were so far away, separated by the mountains and rivers. The heaven is my wife, the earth is my concubine, where is my true home, who shall I enjoy the round and crescent moon together with? The Four Heavens and Nine Worlds, I alone am intoxicated.”
Ning Fan, the master of yin and yang cultivation said, with a strong and proud expression.
If yin and yang cultivation could give him the strength to save his brother, then he would immediately tread on this path!
If he could protect his own family, then even if he became a devil like old monster Han, so what!
“Hmph, heaven is my wife, earth is my concubine. Han Yuanji’s disciple, truly big words…”
The voice of this girl was not feminine but carried a heroic presence. Her voice was sharp like a sword, causing slight pain to Ning Fan’s ears.
Afterward were the sound of the footsteps of the girl going away.
Ning Fan frowned. The Si Fan Palace was the old monster’s forbidden palace, and ordinary people couldn’t come in at all. The old monster never got his hands on women, so how could one travel inside the Si Fan Palace, and even directly called the old monster’s name?
He wanted to chase outside to the yard to find an answer, but he hadn’t taken more than a few steps before a scream from Zhihe came out from inside the bedroom.
Ning Fan’s expression greatly changed, and no longer cared for the mysterious woman earlier, and quickly opened the door to the bedroom.
Inside the room with a wooden tub filled with apricots floating in the water, Zhihe was taking a bath earlier. She now jumped outside of the wooden tub and stood naked on the small bed, and looked down on the ground with horror.
“Mouse… A mouse… Big brother Fan, help me!”
Ning Fan didn’t know whether to laugh or cry from her delicate and scared expression on her young blossoming beauty. Zhihe had stay at the All Pleasure School for three whole years at least, and even though she didn’t have any cultivation, but in the end she had seen immortals, yet she was still afraid of a mouse.
What a lovely girl.
Oh? Something is wrong!
Ning Fan’s expression suddenly became serious.
Si Fan Palace was built in the Seven Apricot Ice City, the land of evil cultivators, how could an ordinary mouse survive?
He gazed at the ground on the mouse with chilling eyes.
So that’s it!
This mouse had white skin and purple eyes, and was not an ordinary mouse, but was a Tracking Mouse. In the memories of the Ancient Chaotic Grand Emperor, many weak cultivators used this type of mouse to spy on people.
Someone used these Tracking Mice to keep up with Zhihe’s whereabout!?
“Big brother Fan, I was really scared. That year, the body of big brother was… by this type of mouse… with purple eyes… eaten completely…”
Zhihe recalled the terrible thing that happened while her eyes were gleaming with tears.
Ning Fan’s expression sank with an uneasy feeling. After a little silence, he lifted his finger towards the mouse and unleashed a black flame and burned it into ashes.
“No I am here.” Ning Fan comforted the poor crying Zhihe. They sat down on the bed with her in his embrace as he was patting her on the back.
She was not afraid of the mouse, but afraid of those memories.
“Ah… Big brother Fan, when did you come in here… Big brother, let go of me, when you hold me like this, I become really strange…”
After a while, Zhihe was slow to react. At this moment, her complete naked body was nestled in Ning Fan’s chest.
She was completely naked!
She was completely naked!!
She was completely naked!!!
Just a carefree hug yet Zhihe’s face was infused with an abnormal glow, and in her misty eyes were charms that were capable of enticing the souls of others!
Ning Fan quickly warded off that charm, and recovered his thoughts. He then immediately understood what was going on and became frightened.
‘Zhihe was a ‘natural born bewitching physique’! Someone valued her greatly and wanted her as a cauldron!”
She was an extremely rare physique perfectly made to be a cauldron!
Natural born bewitching physique allowed for dual cultivation to increase at a rapid pace, and was the concubine many experts dreamed about. Natural born bewitching physique women, if they maintained their purities, then it would be very difficult to spot the bewitching bones on their bodies, but once they lost their virginity, then the bewitching bones would slowly appear… Without joyous time for one day, then their minds would be chaotic for that day. Ten days without sex, then they would become as weak as cotton. One hundred days without sex, then they would die without a doubt. They required the loving of men every day!
Such a troubling physique!
In order to save Ning Fan, Zhihe lost her innocence, and her bewitching physique appeared little by little!
“Big brother, I’m uncomfortable and hot… help me…”
Zhihe’s eyes were alluring, and she weakly said while almost losing consciousness.
Ning Fan was serene. Zhihe was in trouble and he was the only one who could save her. He gently placed her down, and took off his clothings.
He originally wanted to wait for Zhihe to grow up, but it seemed that he could no longer wait.
She was already his woman, and this would not change. So there was no reason to be shy.
Therefore, another unbelievable night happened…
