At the part that would normally be home to the keyhole, there was only a circular rune in the form of a variety of coloured spots . After she gave it to Yang Chen, Sun Qingxue had something to say as well, “The Sovereign said that it is very important to thank you, and that you shouldn’t let other people see the contents . ”
Yang Chen understood what she was trying to say . This was another reward from the Blue Cloud Sect for finding the Eighth Metal True Secret Art . It was not like such a big sect to owe someone and delay repaying the debt by three years . Perhaps this item was the reason .
“What is inside of it?” Yang Chen asked casually . He would naturally accept a reward that he had earned for himself . Had he not gone to the lengths of making a Heart Oath? This reward was well deserved, and the Blue Cloud Sect’s behaviour only served to prove it .
“I don’t know,” Sun Qingxue shook her head . “The Sovereign would not say, and Master would not tell me either . ” It had admittedly made her feel a little wronged . She was delivering the item, but could not know what it was?
Yang Chen knew that the reward was well deserved . The Eighth Metal True Secret Art was not a common essence cultivation method . On the same level, its power was at least twice as powerful as ordinary cultivation methods . This kind of powerful method, if equipped with enough Eighth Metal True Essence, could definitely bring more masters to the Blue Cloud Sect . In some ways, the Eighth Metal True Secret Art was not much worse than even the Questioning Inner Heart Pills .
However, the jade box was tightly sealed and even Sun Qingxue did not know what was inside of it . This was a little strange . Moreover, he was told to not let other people see the contents . These “other people” should be referring to the Pure Yang Palace or the Green Jade Immortal Island, but there shouldn’t be a problem with showing it to Sun Qingxue .
Yang Chen’s spiritual power immediately activated the rune when he placed his finger on it .
Yang Chen knew that the Blue Cloud Sect would not place a trap within . Firstly, Sun Qingxue was right next to him, and secondly, he had not yet handed over the Questing Inner Heart Pills . Moreover, Blue Cloud Sect’s leadership was very cautious, and would never make such a mistake .
The rune shined before breaking, turning into a mess of scattered fragments . The jade box surprisingly was very easy to open .
The rune had been there for security reasons, and clearly no one else had opened the jade box before Yang Chen . The rune functioned like a wax seal, and would break upon opening the box .
And inside the jade box was… another, smaller jade box! The difference this time was that the gap between the boxes was engraved with a dense array method . A warmth could be felt even through the two-fold array .
He could feel something familiar in the warmth . Yang Chen did not even need to open the jade box to know what it held . A fire seed… of sixth grade!
Purple Heart Profound Fire, a sixth grade third-fire . It was a full grade higher than the True Sun Fire, and it was now in his hands .
The True Sun Fire of the fifth grade had helped Yang Chen step into the realm of Great Principle Golden Immortal in his past life . What heights could he reach now?
What was more important was that the Purple Heart Profound Fire was an higher grade version of the fourth grade Purple Heart Fire, whose fire seed Yang Chen’s master Gao Yue held .
The Blue Cloud Sect must have calculated Yang Chen’s attitude toward his master . This reward was probably meant for both of them .
To annoy Gao Yue was to provoke Yang Chen, and conversely, to please Gao Yue was to please Yang Chen . In this matter, Blue Cloud Sect had hit the bullseye .
But what if they had judged incorrectly? Even if Yang Chen did not want to share the fire seed with his Master, he would still need a lot himself . It was a bet the the Blue Cloud Sect could not lose .
The gift made Yang Chen pleasantly surprised . It was unexpected but it was very much welcome . The Blue Cloud Sect didn’t need to say out loud what their intentions were . From where he had found all the 2nd grade Questioning Inner Heart Pills, perhaps he could find one or two more? Haha…
Sun Qingxue was a wood attribute cultivator, and naturally was not fond of such strong flames . Realizing that it was a sixth grade fire seed, she completely lost interest . Her task finished, she pulled Yang Chen along to go touring .
Meanwhile, at Meiqing Mountain many things were now different . The new mountain gate’s reconstruction was finished, and it was in many ways different from the previous one . After Yang Chen took Sun Qingxue for a short walk, he did not dare waste any more time . After all, Sect Master Lu and the head of the palace were waiting for them . So, the two quickly returned to the main hall .
He didn’t know what Sect Master Lu and the head of the palace had discussed . But it seemed that both sides had some doubts, and so a conclusion hadn’t been reached as of now . The two sides took the opportunity of their return to suspend their talks, and then exempted them .
In the evening, Sect Master Lu and his entourage were arranged to stay in a luxurious residence for important guests, and Yang Chen was called to the Blue Vault Mountain Immortal’s Cave to discuss official business .
“Has the Blue Cloud Sect given you the remuneration for the alchemy?” asked the head of the palace .
Yang Chen nodded in admission . However, he did not reveal the Purple Heart Profound Fire as the time was not suitable . Moreover, he had taken a Heart Oath and thus could not provide them with a satisfactory explanation for it .
“Then you may refine the Questioning Heart Pills for them,” sighed the master of the palace . After directing Yang Chen on this matter, the palace master told him that the two partied had not finished negotiation today . “Sect Master Lu said that they were interested in the Inner Sensing Pills, and want to buy the pill recipe from my sect . I have not promised them anything yet . ”
Accompanying the master of the palace in welcoming the Blue Cloud Sect, were the dacheng stage masters Wang Yong and the old tree demon Gui Shanyou, even Hall Master Xu Chengxin had the role of running errands . It was such an important affair that even the other elders were not told what had been discussed, until they heard it from the palace head himself .
Yang Chen and the others pondered on the unknown conditions proposed by the Blue Cloud Sect, which even the palace master was unwilling to agree with . They found it strange, but they found it stranger yet that the Blue Cloud Sect hadn’t simply taken the Inner Sensing Pill’s recipe from the hands of the monster race . It made Yang Chen sigh in regret .
“Yang Chen, what is your estimate on this?” asked the head of the palace, after indulging for a while . “If we gave the Blue Cloud Sect the pill recipe, how long do you think it will be before they will be able to refine the Grade-2 Inner Sensing Pill? ”
Become a Patron!”
Although Yang Chen already promised this to the head of the palace in front of Elder Wang Yong, at the moment, in front of all the elders, Yang Chen replied with respect “According to this disciple’s estimate, it is almost two hundred years, and if they are slow, for hundreds of years, it is unlikely if they will succeed in a shorter time” .
It’s not that Yang Chen was arrogant, it was really that his Great Principle Golden Immortal controlling fire technique was not something that the mortal world fire controlling experts could imagine . Several kinds of fifth grade fire seeds were controlled at the same time . Even if it was a genius fire cultivator, it would take at least a hundred years to do it .
If the method of refining the pill and the method of refining the second-grade pill were counted, this time was absolutely tight . Even if they went to a sixth-grade alchemy master, he would not be able to solve this problem in just two hundred years .
Even Yang Chen, after seeing the Elderly Lord Pill Scripture, plus the «Profound Pill Scripture» left by a certain immortal, made this reference in just six months . Otherwise, the poor Yang Chen in this life time, could not achieve the second-grade refining system of the Inner Sensing Pill . Although the Elderly Lord was powerful, Yang Chen was still more and more experienced in this seemingly inconspicuous mortal small medicinal refining system .
With the guarantee from Yang Chen face-to-face, the master of the palace became more and more emboldened . The elders also understood the focus of the Pure Yang Palace and the Blue Cloud Sect .
Originally, they would have negotiated the use of the second grade Inner Sensing Pill for the greatest benefit . Now it was natural to push the benefits that the Inner Sensing Pill could reach to the limit .
“According to this disciple, since the Green Jade Immortal Island and the Blue Cloud Sect both have a relationship with my sect, this recipe of the Inner Sensing Pill, my ancestral sect should give it to them as a gift . ” Yang Chen saw that everyone was temporarily indulging and not taking the initiative, so he said .
Everyone was shocked . Looking at Yang Chen, it seems that they didn’t understand how Yang Chen would do this loss-making business . But soon Zhu Chentao reacted, and his eyes lit up . He immediately smiled and said “Good idea! Since this first grade Inner Sensing Pill cannot play much role, then it is easy to bring up the importance of the second-grade pill more and more, you can then open the price later . ”
Zhu Chentao’s words made everyone nod . Since the other sect had other chances to get the first grade Inner Sensing Pill recipe, they should simply make a personal feeling and give it to the other party . When the other party found out that the first grade Inner Sensing Pill did not have the power that was speculated, it was then that they would be able to take the second grade Inner Sensing Pill and set a price .
“Okay, we will just do it like that!” The head of the palace also slightly nodded, he was very appreciative of Yang Chen’s idea . At first, he just thought about getting the biggest benefit, but he didn’t want to hurt the sincerity of the cooperation between the two sides if they didn’t know the strength of the second-grade pill to the strength of the first grade pill .
Yang Chen only said a little point, and everyone understood . If this was given to the other party, it was not necessarily a loss-making business . It was not necessarily for the Blue Cloud Sect to owe a favor to the Pure Yang Palace . When the real second grade Inner Sensing Pill turn to the end of the inspection, the price of it would be derived, and at the same time, without losing money, it would also be a person of the Blue Cloud Sect, which was a business that makes a profit .
“Yang Chen, this time Sect Master Lu came, and also mentioned the snow dance fairy and your marriage . ” After determining the strategy of the pill recipe, the head of the palace directly changed the topic, and asked Yang Chen “Your Master does not object, what do you think about it?”
His Master did not object, Yang Chen was not surprised . Not long ago, his Master had already said this to Yang Chen . Regardless of whether Yang Chen wants the snow dance fairy or fairy shi, he must first consider his senior sister, Gongsun ling .
However, it was because of the reminder of Gao Yue that Yang Chen realized another thing . Did he really want to become a double cultivation Dao Companion with Sun Qingxue and Shi Shanshan? This question, Yang Chen himself has no answer until now .
Both women were glamorous and unparalleled characters, and they were all geniuses with excellent qualifications to the extreme . They were famous and cultivated to the pinnacle . No matter which aspect, accepting the two women was a very good thing .
But Yang Chen asked himself if he could pass his own . His own heart has not given an answer to this question . In this case, Yang Chen did not hesitate to give an answer immediately .
“This disciple still want to consider it again . ” Yang Chen replied truthfully, not paying any attention to his own answer, causing the surprise of the elders .
“This kind of good thing has to be considered?” Elder Zheng Feng fully demonstrated his nature in charge of the treasury “Of course, good things must first be bagged for security, procrastinating, finally how could it not be cheap for others?”
“The disciple is still not sure if he wants it . ” Yang Chen smiled and laughed at himself “One day if this disciples really want to, this disciples will go to their sect to ask for the marriage personally, instead of the elders of the two sides deciding it . ”
“Why, do you want to set such a good thing aside, are you still not willing?” Elder Meng Xian’s eyes glanced, he was angry and self-defeating
“Of course, the disciple does not think so . ” Yang Chen replied with a smile . He knew that no matter how the elders get angry with him, it doesn’t mean anything to him, but everyone’s ideas were different .
After a pause, Yang Chen looked for the right words, and then he said: “The disciples just have no answer . When I have figured it out, this disciple would naturally face the two fairies to determine the matter . ”
“You are not afraid to get a hot head when you shave your head?” Gao Shiyan was the master ancestor of Gongsun Ling . He was very concerned about Gongsun Ling’s affairs . When Yang Chen temporarily refused Fairy Shi and the Snow Dance Fairy . He was the happiest one and joked “You don’t want to succeed now, when you have a name and a flower, how about you?”
“That’s what I didn’t want, disciple didn’t force me . ” Yang Chen replied calmly .
“If the two fairies do not agree, then what?” Gao Shiyan still said in such a tone “No matter whether it is the Blue Cloud Sect or the Green Jade Immortal Island, would be so embarrassed . If you are willing, and the two main sects disagree, what about you?”
“If the two fairies are not willing, this disciple will not force them . ” Although Yang Chen still smiled but his tone revealed a very strong self-confidence “But if it is for other reasons, please forgive the disciples, even if the Green Jade Immortal Island and the Blue Cloud Sect have obstructed, the results would be the same . If this disciple wants to do it, I will be able to do it, no one can stop me . ”
When Yang Chen’s words were said, this time all the elders were silent . Originally, Gao Shiyan still had a refutation in his heart, but suddenly thought about Yang Chen’s record in recent years, whether it was the Greatest Heaven Sect or the second city lord of the monster race, 100,000 mountain, or the Questioning Inner Heart Pill, Heaven Seizing Pill and Inner Sensing Pill . In the later period, Luo Yuan’s pursuit, now he could not find an example that could refute Yang Chen .
