Chapter 117: Refining pills onsite
Seeing that Sima You Yue really took out a pill furnace, many people began to believe that he really was an alchemist. However, Nalan He, Shi Mo Li and the others felt that this was merely the result of prior preparation.
Wan Wu Feng waved a hand and the Imperial Guards beside him moved a long table to the middle of the great hall.
At this moment, Nalan Lan and Murong An walked in one after the other. Seeing Sima You Yue and the pill furnace, they were both incomparably surprised.
Shi Mo Lie saw that the two had come in around the same time and hatefully glared at them. However, this was not the right time to interrogate them, so she cast her glance back to Sima You Yue.
Sima You Yue patted the table and waved her hands and a few pill ingredients were displayed upon the table.
Nalan Lan heard the discussions of the people around them and was astonished when she found out that Sima You Yue knew how to refine pills.
Wasn’t he a waste? How could he be an Alchemist!
She had yet to ask the people beside her when she saw Sima You Yue take out some firewood to place it under the pill furnace. After that, he poured out Spiritual Qi onto the firewood and it began to burn.
This was a method that Sima You Yue had discovered herself. She used Spiritual Qi to control the flame so that she could easily manipulate how big the fire would burn.
Everyone started to believe that he could refine pills when they saw that what he was really using was indeed Spiritual Qi.
The others had pretty much been prepared beforehand, but Murong An and Nalan Lan were given a rude shock.
The person beside Nalan Lan recited the story of what Sima You Yue had said before, and hearing that Sima You Yue had only began to cultivate because of the time that he was beaten, she and Murong An exchanged a glance.
Sima You Yue waited for the pill furnace to heat up before she began to purify the pill ingredients. Everyone saw that Sima You Yue methods had substance to them and wondered in their heart if he was indeed capable of refining pills.
It was a common saying that, there was a huge difference between a profession and an amateur; while the others were still wondering whether or not Sima You Yue could really refine pills or not, Shi Lei and Wu Lin had already pretty much figured it out.
The pill that she had chosen was the White Lotus pill, which was the easiest pill within the second rank pills to refine. Although it was relatively easier than other pills, it was one of the most sought after second ranked pill which value was worth the price.
Furthermore, observing the methods that he used to refine pills, even comparing him to Shi Mo Li, who had already been refining pills for a few years, Shi Mo Li was far behind.
As a result, even though they were unwilling, the two of them had already understood that Sima You Yue had indeed terrifyingly achieved the rank of a second ranked Alchemist.
The moment Sima You Yue started refining pills, she emptied her heart of any greed and completely ignored whatever was happening around her. The White Lotus Pill was already a pill that she was extremely familiar with, and had spent around less than an hour in total to successfully refine it.
After she had successfully refined the pill, she extinguished the flame before taking out the pill from inside the furnace. In order to avoid standing out, she only took out a single pill.
“Your Majesty, this is the second ranked White Lotus Pill, I invite your majesty to take a look.”
She passed the pill over to the imperial guard to let him pass it to Wan Wu Feng. Wan Wu Feng stretched out a hand to touch it before waving his hand to indicate to the guard to pass the pill over to others to appraise.
uo;It truly has just been refined. The pill still feels hot.”
“So you’re saying that she really is a second ranked Alchemist?”
“This rank of talent is really the level of an evildoer!”
“It looks like the future of the Sima Clan will be limitless!”
The faces of the people from the Nalan Clan as well as the people from the Alchemist Guild were long and gloomy. Sima You Yue had already used actions to prove herself as a second ranked alchemist. In the future, they will have to treat the Sima Clan with a different attitude.
This was the first time that the people from the Sima Clan had seen Sima You Yue refine pills. Seeing the smooth and practiced actions, they were incomparably surprised.
Sima You Yue kept the pill furnace as well as the remaining pill ingredients into the Spirit Pearl as the imperial guards stepped forward to move the table back.
“Your Majesty, it was said just now that the Nalan Clan Leader would have to apologise to me in front of everyone if I was able to refine a second ranked pill.”
“You…” Nalan He glared at Sima You Yue as his face contorted with anger.
“What’s wrong. It was you, the leader of the Nalan Clan who said it yourself just now. Could it be that you want to back out of it?” Sima You Yue looked at Nalan He fearlessly and was completely unafraid of his intimidating aura.
“Clan Leader Nalan, since you admitted it yourself, you have to carry it out.” Wan Wu Feng said.
Nalan He forced his rage down as she hatefully forced out a “sorry”.
“Clan Leader Nalan, what did you say? Your voice was so soft and my ears are no good so I couldn’t hear it.” Sima You Yue cupped her ears and smiled as she said.
“Sima You Yue, don’t go too far!” Nalan Lan slapped the table as he shouted at Sima You Yue.
“Oh? Am I going too far? A second ranked Alchemist that was called into question is the one who has suffered a great grievance. I merely asked the Nalan Clan Leader to apologise to me and didn’t say anything else. If we compare it, wouldn’t the Nalan Clan be the one that has gone too far?!”
“Lan’er, step down.” Nalan He chided. After that he took a deep breath as he spoke louder as he said to Sima You Yue, “Sorry.”
Sima You Yue nodded, saying, “Since the Nalan Clan Leader has already apologised, this lowly one will not pursue anything further. I hope that the Nalan Clan Leader will not make this kind of mistake in the future in order to avoid. After all, not all Alchemists will speak as kindly as I do.”
After speaking, she looked at Shi Lei and the others especially deeply, turning around to return to her seat with the Sima Clan.
“Fifth Bro, that was awesome!” Sima You Ming and the other four all looked at her with gazes filled with praise. Sima You Le even stuck gave her a big thumbs up.
“Enough, let’s end this here.” Wan Wu Feng said, “I have prepared a wine party for everyone. All you young people who enjoy having fun can all go and play. Bai Chuan, take good care of everyone.”
“Yes, Father Emperor.” The First price stood up and replied to Wan Wu Feng.
Wan Wu Feng took his imperial guards with him as they left the great hall. Wan Bai Chuan clapped his hands and a group of palace maids entered successively, leading everyone to yet another palace.
Because they knew that all these were young people who enjoyed having fun, all those who were more advanced in age went back first. As a result, when they reached the location for the wine party, only the young guests remained.
Sima You Yue had initially not planned to participate. However, thinking about the sound stone in her hand, she changed her mind.
“Fifth Brother, you want to participate in the wine party?” Seeing that Sima You Yue was going to follow after the palace maid, Sima You Ming and the others called after her.
It was only now that Sima You Yue recalled that she had said she wanted to go back home with everyone. She waved her hands at them, saying, “You all can head back first. I want to see how that wine party is going to be like.”
“But will you be alright on your own? Why don’t we go with you.” Sima You Ran said.
“No need, you all won’t enjoy this kind of wine party, right.” Sima You Yue said, “I’ll just go and play for a little one become going home.”
“I want to go to the wine party as well so I’ll go with You Yue. Brothers, you can all relax. I’ll definitely take good care of her.” It was unknown where Fatty Qu had popped out from as he came beside Sima You Yue. He wanted to stretch forth a hand to hook over her shoulder, however, thinking about how she was female, he gave up the idea.
Seeing that someone was accompanying Sima You Yue, Sima You Ming nodded, saying, “Since this is the case, then we’ll go back home first. We’ll leave the Beast Carriage for you.”
“No need, in a moment, I’ll just let Fatty Qu send me home.” Sima You Yue said.
“Alright then. Then we’ll head back first.”
Sima You Yue waved at the few of them before she turned around to walk towards the wine party with Fatty Qu.
“You Yue, say it. What do you want me to do?” Fatty Qu said.
Sima You Yue started at Fatty Qu with astonishment, “How did you know that I had something I wanted you to do?”
