Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-494
The next morning, the entire ‘Pan’s Gate’ began to operate like a
machine. Early in the morning, Xun Er and the other two brought some
people out of the new student area. After which, they rushed about the
entire Inner Academy, purchasing the medicinal ingredients on the list
Xiao Yan had given to them from all over the place.
After being busy for nearly an entire day, the group of them finally
brought back excitement and fatigue as they hurried to the new student
Xiao Yan eyed the large pile of medicinal ingredients in front of him in
a quiet, secret room in the small pavilion home. He saw the tiredness
that remained on the faces of Xun Er and the other two. He involuntarily
said with a gently smile, “You have worked hard.”
“These medicinal ingredients spent a total of one hundred eighty plus
days of ‘Fire Energy.’ Originally, the four of us were unable to
scrape together these ‘Fire Energy.’ However, Atai and the other
members of ‘Pan’s Gate’ took the initiative to donate and
supplement a little. Now, these medicinal ingredients are basically all
the remaining property of ‘Pan Gate.’” Xun Er sighed.
Xiao Yan quietly nodded. He was slightly moved as he said, “You can
rest assured. Remember the ‘Fire Energy’ that Atai and the rest
donated will be rewarded. Once the medicinal pills are successfully sold,
return double the amount to them.”
“Yes.” Xun Er nodded. She touched the pile of medicinal ingredients
as she knit her eyebrows slightly and said, “The price of purchasing
medicinal ingredients within the Inner Academy is a little expensive. I
am thinking of forming a group within ‘Pan’s Gate’ or hiring some
people from within the Inner Academy to specifically search for the
medicinal ingredients that we need deep in the mountains once this batch
of medicinal pills is refined. After that, we will pay them a monthly pay
according to the number or quality of the medicinal ingredients that each
of them hand over. This way, we might greatly reduce our cost.”
Xiao Yan was startled when he heard this. He immediately nodded as his
gaze swept over the large pile of medicinal ingredients in front of him.
There was actually not that many medicinal ingredients. However, the
price of which was the painstaking effort of the entire ‘Pan’s
Gate.’ Xiao Yan sighed. This burden was a little heavy…
“Ke ke, Xiao Yan ge-ge, we will hand all the matters after this to you.
We cannot give the slightest help in the matter of refining pills.” Xun
Er laughed in a lovely manner.
“Yes.” Xiao Yan nodded seriously. He said in a soft voice, “You can
rest assured. I will turn all of these medicinal ingredients into the
medicinal pills that we need. I will definitely not betray everyone’s
“That’s right, these are the two kind of medicinal pills that I have
specially sent someone to purchase from the site where the ‘Medicine
Gang’ sells their medicine. One of them is the medicinal pill to
recover Dou Qi that Wu Hao mentioned. The ‘Medicine Gang’ calls it
‘Return Spring Pill.’ The other kind is a type of healing medicine
which has quite a good effect on external injuries…” Xun Er suddenly
took out two small jade bottles from her storage ring, and gently placed
them in front of Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan was startled when he heard this. He could not help but
immediately praise Xun Er’s intelligence within his heart.
“Alright, Xiao Yan ge-ge, the things that follow will be entirely up to
you.” Xun Er suddenly smiled. She waved her hand toward Hu Jia and Wu
Hao and the three of them slowly exited the room. After which, she
tightly shut the door.
As the three people left, the secret room once again descended into
silence. Xiao Yan stared at the large pile of medicinal ingredients in
front of him. He let out a long sigh after a while before sitting down
cross-legged and waving his hand. The medicinal cauldron appeared in
front of him.
After taking out the medicinal cauldron, Xiao Yan smoothly received the
two kinds of medicinal pills that Xun Er had purchased. First, he took
out the so-called ‘Return Spring Pill.’ It was a green-colored
medicinal pill that contained an extremely faint medicinal fragrance.
Xiao Yan gently sniffed this faint medicinal fragrance before lifting his
eyebrows. He shook his head lightly with some disdain. It was likely that
this so-called ‘Return Spring Pill’ did not possess over four kinds
of medicinal ingredients. Moreover, they were all extremely common types
of medicinal ingredients. In the eyes of Xiao Yan with his extremely rich
refining skills, this so called ‘Return Spring Pill’ could merely be
considered one of the first tier medicinal pills.
“Looks like these people from the ‘Medicine Gang’ don’t even put
in effort without the presence of any competition.” Xiao Yan laughed
faintly. He took out the other bottle of healing medicine. This kind of
healing medicine was in a salve form and was dark-red in color. Xiao Yan
placed it under his nose to sniff. He managed to differentiate the
medicinal ingredients that were blended within. He could not help but
immediately shrugged his shoulders.
Xiao Yan placed both kinds of medicinal pills back in their original
spot. He turned his gaze toward the medicinal cauldron and his expression
gradually became calm.
Once Xiao Yan entered into the state before he started refining medicine,
he would be in an attentive condition. His gaze calmly stared at the
medicinal cauldron in front of him as a thought rolled slightly in his
mind. This time around, he planned to refine three types of medicinal
pills. One type of the ‘Energy Recover Pill’ that enabled one to
recover Dou Qi. This kind of medicinal pill was something that Xiao Yan
had already practiced until he had reached the pinnacle. With his current
medicine refining standard, he could at the very least maintain his
success rate of refining the ‘Energy Recovery Pill’ at around
The second type was a kind of healing medicine for one to orally consume.
Its name was ‘Body Recovery Pill.’ This kind of medicinal pill not
only had a certain healing effect on one’s internal injuries, but it
also had quite a good healing effect on external injuries. This kind of
‘Body Recovery Pill’ far exceeded that type of salve healing medicine
the ‘Medicine Gang’ sold regardless of whether it was in terms of
medicinal effect or tier. Moreover, the most crucial factor was that the
medicinal ingredients that this kind of medicinal pill needed was even
lesser than that salve healing medicine that the ‘Medicine Gang’ sold!
Xiao Yan had absolute confidence in this kind of healing medicine, which
had low cost and great medicinal effects. As long as it was not a fool
who had his head caught between the door, most people would know which to
The third type of medicinal pill was named ‘Quiet Ice Pill.’ Upon the
consumption of this kind of medicinal pll, one would be able to extremely
effectively ease the doping of the Fire Poison. If one were to discuss
its tier, the ‘Quiet Ice Pill’ could perhaps enter the peak of the
second tier. Looking from a certain point of view… it would not be
overboard to even say that this kind of medicinal pill was that of a
third tier. This was because this kind of assistance medicinal pill, one
that could help people train, had a value that far exceeded healing
medicines and other kinds of medicinal pills.
This kind of medicinal pill would allow ‘Pan’s Gate’ to surpass the
‘Medicine Gang’ in one shot, creating a monopoly on the medicinal
pill within the Inner Academy. This was because until now, the
‘Medicine Gang’ did not have a single medicinal pill that could
resist the Fire Poison!
The medicinal formula for the three kinds of medicinal pill flashed
across his mind. Xiao Yan sighed a deep breath of air. His expression
gradually became solemn. He rubbed his fingers slightly and the
green-colored flame instantly rose from the tip of his finger.
The curling green-colored flame was like a spirit as it jumped in a
lively manner on Xiao Yan’s finger. Under the dancing of this fire
spirit, the temperature within the secret room was slowly climbing…
Dark-black eyes stared intently at the rising green-colored flame. A long
while later, Xiao Yan flicked his finger gently. The green-colored flame
drew a distorted arc through the air. It passed through the fire outlet
and abruptly burned and soared within. The high temperature grilled the
medicinal cauldron until it emitted a slight ‘zi zi’ sound.
Xiao Yan’s eyes stared unblinkingly into the medicinal cauldron. His
long finger slowly moved past the medicinal ingredient pile on the left
side. Suddenly, his finger trembled. A couple of different types of
medicinal ingredients were accurately clipped between his fingers.
With a gentle wave of his hand, a couple of medicinal ingredients were
thrown into the medicinal cauldron where the green fire was rising.
Following the entrance of the medicinal ingredients into the hot
cauldron, the green-colored fire seedling was abruptly extended and it
was completely swallowed…
There was not the slightest change in the expression on Xiao Yan’s face
as the medicinal ingredients were swallowed by the fire seedling. His
palm faced the medicinal cauldron in the empty air in front of it. His
long finger was flicked slightly. Following the flick of his finger, one
could see that the green-colored flame within the medicinal cauldron
suddenly began to dance. As the flame rose, a cluster of pure pill liquid
was being refined as it was suspended on the top of the fire seedling.
Xiao Yan’s eyes observed the suspended pill liquid indifferently. The
hot temperature was repeatedly seeping out, expelling some of the
remaining impurities within the pill liquid…
At this moment, Xiao Yan’s Spiritual Strength had already penetrated
the medicinal cauldron. Under the micromanagement of his Spiritual
Strength, the temperature of the green-colored flame would rise and fall
according to his thoughts. Under this perfect control, the pill liquid
was culled until it was becoming increasingly pure…
Xun Er and the two others were sitting within the spacious hall. They
were somewhat distracted while conversing with one another. Occasionally,
their gazes would sweep toward a tightly shut door on the floor above.
There was a faint anxiety in their eyes.
“It is fast approaching one and a half days… why has Xiao Yan not
come out yet?” Wu Hao, who had become restless because of the
pressuring atmosphere, finally could not resist as he took the lead to
open his mouth to speak.
“Let’s wait a little longer. We are all not alchemists. Therefore, we
are also uncertain about the sequence for refining medicinal pill.
However, we must not disturb Xiao Yan ge-ge no matter what…” Xun Er
shook her head and spoke softly.
Hu Jia by the side could only helplessly sigh. The only thing that they
could do was wait. Currently, nearly the entire ‘Pan’s Gate’ was
waiting for Xiao Yan to come out. If he were to fail, it would be an
extremely great blow for the morale of the members of ‘Pan’s Gate.’
After all, since they had come to be acquainted with the Xiao Yan, who
had always appeared in the form of an ever victorious general in front of
them, the latter had never failed… hopefully, this time around would
not be an exception.
The sound of a door opening suddenly rang out in the hall with an
oppressive atmosphere. The three of them were startled. They immediately
raised their heads and turned their gazes toward the originally tightly
shut door, which was being slowly opened at this moment.
Xiao Yan slowly walked out under the gaze of the three people. That
delicate and handsome face may be filled with fatigue, but the joy
between his brows did indeed cause the three people in the hall to
quietly relax their hearts, which were as tense as a cord. They exchanged
glances with one another before sighing in relief.
Xiao Yan stood on the second story, and smiled toward the three people
down in the hall. He swiftly walked down the stairs and came to the table
in the middle of the hall. With a wave of his hand, a few hundred jade
bottles instantly flashed and appeared, filling the entire table until it
“Three types of medicinal pills. Eighty-three ‘Energy Recovery
Pill,’ sixty-two ‘Body Recovery Pill,’ and thirty-six ‘Quiet Ice
Pill.’ In total, there are one hundred eighty-one pills.” A brilliant
smile surfaced on Xiao Yan’s face as he laughed out with a clear voice.
“So many…” The faces of the three people were shocked as they eyed
the table which was filled with jade bottles. This was especially so
after they heard the numbers that Xiao Yan had reported. A joy
involuntarily surfaced between his brows.
“It is fortunate that I did not fail my orders. I can only rely on all
of you for the matter of selling it after this. I am really burned
out…” Xiao Yan sat down on the soft chair. His face was filled with a
tiredness as he spoke softly to the three of them.
Xun Er and the other two nodded excitedly. The three of them swarmed to
the side of the table and carefully counted the jade bottles.
“Xiao Yan ge-ge…” Xun Er turned around after discussing the selling
procedures with the other two. She had just called out but was stunned
when she eyed Xiao Yan, who was sleeping with his eyes tightly shut and
had his hand supporting his head. She took out a soft blanket from beside
her and covered it over Xiao Yan’s body. In a gentle voice, she said,
“Sleep. Xiao Yan ge-ge, when you have awoken, Xun Er will report to you
the good news…”
