2101 Asking for Help
In the Heavenly Square Cauldron, the scarlet-gold flames were burning hotly.
A crimson pill floated quietly.
The last line was slowly outlined!
Beads of sweat kept appearing on Chu Liuyue’s forehead, but before they could fall, they were evaporated by the scorching heat of the flames.
Because she had consumed too much of her bodily force, her lips were pale.
At this moment, time seemed to pass especially slowly.
The sky gradually darkened. A cold wind swept from the depths of the desert and brushed past her.
There was hot fire in front of her and cold wind behind her.
Waves of weakness came from her body.
Chu Liuyue secretly bit the tip of her tongue, and the sweet taste spread between her lips and teeth.
The sharp pain kept her extremely awake.
At this moment, the last line on the pill finally appeared completely! An extremely strong medicinal fragrance erupted from the cauldron!
Chu Liuyue slapped the cauldron, and the soul-forming pill instantly flew up!
The crimson-gold flames gradually peeled off, followed by the transparent karmic fire.
When the last bit of fire dissipated, Chu Liuyue stood up and swept her aura across, putting the pill into the jade box that she had already prepared!
The jade box closed, and Chu Liuyue landed back on the ground.
She looked at the jade box in her hand and could vaguely feel the fluctuations of the pill inside!
Soul-forming pill—a Senior Physician-level pill!
Her success in refining this pill meant that she had officially stepped into the threshold of becoming a Senior Physician!
The rich medicinal fragrance in the air didn’t dissipate for a long time.
Chu Liuyue’s heart beat rapidly, and the blood in her body seemed to be boiling.
She raised the jade box in her hand, turned around, and smiled brightly at Rong Xiu and Su Li, who were standing not far away. “It’s done!”
At this moment, the night was thick. In the black velvet-like night sky, there were no stars or moon.
Beside her, in the transparent Heavenly Square Cauldron, a strong and bright flame was burning silently.
The sparkling fire landed on her face like top-quality porcelain jade. Her obsidian eyes were dazzling, and her red lips curled up into a bright smile.
“Congratulations, Yue’er.” Rong Xiu’s thin crimson lips curled up slightly, and there was unconcealed admiration in his eyes.
Although he knew that she would definitely succeed, he still felt happy when he saw her happy expression.
Su Li also gave her a thumbs-up and sighed from the bottom of her heart. “Yue’er, you’re really impressive!”
Without any preparation, she actually used this opportunity to break through to become a Senior Physician! From the first time she tried to refine the soul-forming pill until now… Only more than ten days have passed, and she has only failed four times in the middle! If this news spreads, it will cause many people to be green with envy.
Chu Liuyue put away the Heavenly Square Cauldron. After thinking for a while, she said, “Actually, although this soul-forming pill is of a high level, it’s not too troublesome to refine. I was able to succeed this time because of some luck.”
Su Li was speechless. “It’s not troublesome?”
She was dazzled as she watched from the side. Even now, she couldn’t remember the order in which the herbs were put.
Chu Liuyue smiled and nodded. “That’s right! There are a lot of herbs for the soul-forming pill, but the refinement technique is actually very simple.”
Among the prescriptions she had seen, it could only be ranked as a medium.
Rong Xiu raised his eyebrows slightly and didn’t say anything.
He had long sensed that Chu Liuyue’s understanding of these prescriptions was a little off. Now, it seemed like it was indeed the case.
The soul-forming pill could be considered an intermediate pill at the Senior Physician level, and it was quite precious. No matter how one looked at it, it was definitely not simple.
If it was their first time refining the soul-forming pill, even those experienced Physicians would rarely succeed after a few attempts in such a short time.
Still… It was obvious that there was no need to tell her this now.
Chu Liuyue didn’t notice the subtle change in Rong Xiu’s expression. She looked at Su Li and smiled. “Mr. Su, with the pill, it’ll be much easier to help you reconstruct your body. Later, we just have to find a suitable skeleton of a stage-nine warrior and—”
Suddenly, her expression changed. She quickly turned around and looked into the depths of the desert!
Almost at the same time, Rong Xiu’s eyes turned sharp!
When Su Li saw this, an ominous feeling instantly surged in her heart. “What’s the matter?”
Chu Liuyue didn’t speak and frowned.
Just now, she had lost contact with Tuan Zi and Zi Chen! No matter how she called out in her heart, she could no longer receive any news from the two of them!
This was the first time such a situation had happened since she contracted Tuan Zi and Zi Chen!
Chu Liuyue felt a chill down her spine.
It had to be known that after fiends and humans contracted with each other, they were connected to each other. Even thousands of miles away, they could still sense each other’s existence.
But now, it was as if an extremely sharp knife had cut off the invisible connection between them!
It was clearly fine just now…
Right at this moment, Rong Xiu suddenly held her hand. His palm was warm and dry, and he held her hand tightly and gently.
It was obvious that he had already sensed Chu Liuyue’s nervousness.
The warmth surged from his palm with comforting strength.
Chu Liuyue took a deep breath and said word by word, “Tuan Zi and Zi Chen… can’t be contacted.”
Rong Xiu’s glabella moved slightly, and he immediately understood what Chu Liuyue meant.
He gently squeezed her hand. “Don’t be anxious. This is the Red Moon Desert; they can’t be lost.”
Chu Liuyue nodded. If I really can’t find them, I can only ask Big Baby and the others for help.
At this moment, a sound came from afar!
The few of them looked up and saw a yellow and white figure rushing over—it was Xue Xue!
When it got closer, Chu Liuyue saw Xue Xue clearly, and her expression changed.
Its fluffy snow-white fur was already covered in a layer of yellow sand. It looked dirty and even had some knots, but that wasn’t the most important thing. This was because… there were several black scorch marks on Xue Xue’s butt!
“Xue Xue, what are you…” Chu Liuyue was about to ask when Xue Xue quickly pounced over and bit the corner of her skirt.
As it pulled, it let out a low whimper.
Chu Liuyue suddenly realized something. “Where do you want to take me? Wait, your injury—was it left behind by Tuan Zi?”
That aura was too familiar!
Xue Xue nodded crazily, still pulling with all its might.
Rong Xiu suddenly said, “It knows where Tuan Zi and Zi Chen are.”
Chu Liuyue’s heart skipped a beat. “Really?”
Rong Xiu nodded slightly and glanced at Xue Xue. “Just lead the way.”
“Ow!” Xue Xue responded, turned around, and ran forward.
Chu Liuyue invited Su Li back to the Heavenly Square Cauldron, then chased after Xue Xue with Rong Xiu!
The cold night breeze blew past.
Chu Liuyue and Rong Xiu used their full speed, and their figures quickly disappeared into the heavy night.
