Chapter 237: The Pill Was Completed and the Training Was Over
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
That was because the last time he refined an extremely powerful pill, it had caused a lightning tribulation. Therefore, this time around, Ye Xiao went to the outskirts of Zhong city to find an open space to refine pills.
He summoned the Great Dragon and had it stand guard by the side.
Setting up an array was more troublesome, and the Great Dragon had the ability to fight alone. With him guarding it, it would not be a problem.
After letting the Great Dragon take charge of security, Ye Xiao took out the Shadow Bat’s star core, the Shadow Bat’s flesh, as well as three bodies, the Stegosaurus, Azura’s body, and a few Poisonous Dragon Scorpion bodies.
As the Myriad of Swords to the Origin revolved, Ye Xiao quickly removed all the impurities in the star beast meat. He extracted the essence and injected it into the star core.
After the star core received the energy feedback, it resisted at first because it still retained the Shadow Bat’s consciousness.
Other than that, Ye Xiao also integrated the Shadow Bat’s soul that was shattered by him back then into it to increase his soul power.
Although his soul power was already very strong, that did not mean that his soul power had reached its peak. In the future, when he advanced to the Emperor realm, he would need even more soul power. What if he did not make preparations beforehand?
Soul power could not be directly absorbed. It had to be refined into a medicinal pill in order to safely absorb it. That was to prevent the other party’s distracting thoughts from fusing into his soul and causing his character to deviate.
If a second personality with a very small probability appeared and caused him to have a split personality, then the trouble would be even greater.
In short, safety was the most important thing, especially that type of food.
A large patch of dark clouds quickly gathered in the sky, followed by the sound of thunder.
In the blink of an eye, the sky above the city, which had just regained its calm, once again became depressed.
Everyone looked at the thunderclouds in the sky and could not help but have puzzled expressions on their faces.
Only Beitang Ce was staring outside. His fire spirit eyes flickered and were filled with shock.
‘That aura seems to be Mr. Ye. What is he up to now?’
Not long after, his phone rang. It was a call from Shi Guanghao. Bei Tangce only found an excuse to brush it off.
After all, it was Ye Xiao who did the work, so it was not appropriate for him to ask too many questions. If he could hide it for him, then he would.
On Ye Xiao’s side, he was continuously refining the star beast essence and star core. Very quickly, he refined a pure golden medicinal pill.
Lightning fell crazily in the sky, pressing down from all directions.
All the lightning gathered on the medicinal pill. Even if they were refining the medicinal pill, they were also refining the medicinal pill.
If the medicinal pill could withstand it, then it would become an imperial pill. If the medicinal pill could not withstand it, then it would turn into ashes, and Ye Xiao would not get anything.
At that moment, Ye Xiao’s pill refining cultivation technique changed from refining the medicinal pill to assisting the medicinal pill to take shape.
One Thousand to One, and spiritual energy was continuously transferred into the medicinal pill, giving the medicinal pill a stronger resistance.
Boom, Boom, Boom…
The falling lightning in the sky gradually increased the intensity of its attack.
However, the pill refinement that time was not as strong as the myriad of purple and red leaves.
Even with the body of a lesser divine beast, one had to know that the eight-colored myriad of purple and red leaves was just one step away from advancing to nine-colored. It could already be considered a top-grade material among heavenly materials and earthly treasures.
How powerful was the spiritual energy of heaven and earth contained within it?
Finally, under the bombardment of dozens of seconds, the medicinal pill was completely formed. At that moment, all the lightning had withdrawn. Although they were unwilling, they could only float under the clouds and not continue to land on the ground.
At that moment, they could no longer harm the medicinal pill. It would be useless if they continued to slash down.
They could only stare hatefully at the medicinal pill that was already filled with lightning patterns and had completely become an imperial pill.
At the same time, the medicinal pill also gave birth to a trace of spirituality. Taking advantage of the fact that it had just succeeded in refining, it directly transformed into a golden light and turned around to flee.
Ye Xiao was unflustered. His large hand grabbed at the air and executed the Star-picking Hand, instantly taking it down.
The medicinal pill was retracted by the power of Ye Xiao’s Star-picking Hand. Within a certain range, it continued to collide randomly and let out waves of mournful cries.
It continuously begged Ye Xiao not to hurt it. That pitiful appearance made people continuously feel pity for it.
Ye Xiao looked at its desperate struggle to survive and gradually became silent.
The medicinal pill noticed Ye Xiao’s silence and let out an even deeper mournful cry, as if it wanted to stir up Ye Xiao’s compassion.
After a few seconds, it finally succeeded.
Ye Xiao did not want to eat a conscious thing either. It was as if he was eating a living thing. It was a little uncomfortable and scary.
Therefore, he clasped his palms together and smacked it into powder before swallowing it in one mouthful.
Reality proved that one still had to kill it after eating. Only then would one feel comfortable eating it, and there would not be any churning feeling in the stomach.
When the medicinal powder entered the mouth, it instantly turned into a stream of fluid and quickly entered Ye Xiao’s body.
The moment it entered Ye Xiao’s body, the nutrients within it immediately began to explode, forming waves after waves of extremely violent spiritual energy!
However, it had only just exploded when all the cultivation techniques within Ye Xiao’s body began to revolve directly, forming countless air masses that immediately split it up and ate it, quickly suppressing it.
Ye Xiao did not even have to expend much effort to eat the medicinal pill refined by the myriad of purple and red leaves on the spot, let alone that medicinal pill.
Very quickly, the medicinal pill transformed into the rich energy within Ye Xiao’s body, tempering his meridians over and over again, increasing his physical body’s cultivation by another level.
Ye Xiao exhaled a breath. The spiritual energy within was dense, and because it was overly dense, it had already formed a white fog.
‘My strength has increased by another level. I’m not far away from fusing with my soul and becoming a true King realm martial artist. I originally planned to become a King realm martial artist within half a year, but now it seems that I won’t even need three months.’
The corners of his mouth curled up slightly. He executed the Divine Intent technique and returned to the city.
At that moment, a few strange-looking black shadows slowly crawled out from a small alley in Zhong city. Their gazes were carefully observing the busy crowd on the streets.
“Big Brother, our star beasts’ martial arts experts have all been defeated. What are we still doing here?”
“What do you know? It’s precisely because they have all been defeated that the humans have been blinded by victory. They won’t even think of coming over to guard against us.”.
“Taking advantage of this opportunity, a few of us can come in and reap some benefits. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could run away after reaping some benefits?”
“Big Brother is right. The few of us are star beasts above the great grandmaster level. Even amongst humans, we can be considered top-notch martial arts experts.
“As long as we don’t encounter the few human divine grandmasters in Zhong city, we won’t be in any danger.
“Reaping a wave of benefits and then running away is definitely a win-win situation.”
“Big Brother is smart.”
“That’s for sure. This plan is a good idea that I’ve thought about over and over again. It’s absolutely foolproof. I won’t tell ordinary people about it.
“Only you, my brothers. I barely brought you in to get some benefits.”
“Thank you for your training, Big Brother. From now on, we will definitely follow your lead.”
“If we follow Big Brother, we won’t be hungry.”
“Stop talking. There’s a human warrior walking over there. Set up an ambush and hide all your auras. Whoever dares to expose them, I’ll kill them.”
“Big Brother, don’t worry. We know what we’re doing.”
The star beasts’ eyes were full of vigor and radiance.
They seemed to have already thought of the scene of the bumper harvest that night.
What a glutton!
Two of the star beasts even began to drool.
That figure approached from afar and did not walk slowly. However, in the eyes of those star beasts, it was as slow as a snail. That was because they were starting to get impatient. Their desire to devour humans had already reached its peak.
In 100 feet, 50 feet, 30 feet, 10 feet… Finally, the other party arrived at the entrance of the alley.
The leading star beast suddenly opened its mouth, and the other star beasts instantly followed behind.
Like hungry wolves pouncing on their prey, they opened their bloody mouths and pounced crazily at the other party.
A second later, the sound of explosions soared into the sky, and flames soared into the sky.
The surrounding residents immediately began to call the garrison.
“Hello! Is this the garrison? I’ve reported that there was a fight between martial artists. The address is… Come quickly, or else they’ll run away.”
Ye Xiao left the small alley and continued to walk back to the hotel.
He was somewhat puzzled. Why were these few great-level star beasts so bold?
Azura and the others had already been completely suppressed, yet they still dared to come over!
After thinking about it, Ye Xiao still could not understand their thoughts, so he could only give up.
After waiting for ten minutes, the garrison team came over. When they saw that the star beasts on the ground had already been blasted to smithereens and were only left with one or two claws, their expressions instantly changed.
“This material? This is a great-level star beast? A great-level star beast has barged in. Quick, quickly report to the upper echelons. The entire city is on alert!”
The Zhong city that had just experienced a calamity became nervous again in the blink of an eye.
On Ye Xiao’s side, Yang Xi and the others had just returned to the hotel.
When they saw Ye Xiao, they could not help but surround him.
“Supervisor, where did you go? You didn’t pick up when we called you. You scared us to death just now. We thought something had happened to you.”
Ye Xiao shook his head slightly.
“I went out to do some personal matters these few days. I’ve made you all worried.”
“It’s fine. It’s good that you’re fine.”
Ye Xiao nodded.
“It’s very late. Everyone, go back and rest.”
Everyone exchanged a few pleasantries before returning to their own rooms and starting to rest.
In the following few days, Ye Xiao’s life was much calmer. He went to study in the morning and read books in the library in the afternoon. His life was quite comfortable.
In the blink of an eye, 20 days passed in a trance. The study was over, and everyone had to return to Jianghai city the next day.
On the last day before leaving, Ye Xiao came to the library for the last time to bid farewell to Beitang Ce and ask him about something..
