This was the headquarters of the Coldblood Group, so the group members
would not let Ye Lang wander around aimlessly, but restricted him in
movement. There were some places which he was not allowed in. That was
why Coldblood Thirteen asked someone to keep an eye on him.
Actually, even if no one watched Ye Lang, as long as he approached any
place where he should not go, somebody would appear to stop him.
Fortunately, Ye Lang was just taking a walk right now. Any place would be
ok for him, he also didnâ€™t want to go to the restricted places and get
All the way, Ye Lang saw common people, who did not have the style of the
Coldblood Group, so he felt a little bit surprised.
â€œExcuse me, for the members of the Coldblood Group, do they always move
out at night, but stay inside in the daytime?â€ Ye Lang asked.
â€œWell, of course not! You donâ€™t see any of them now, because they
have their own work to do. Those who need to go out have already gone
out, while those inside are basically resting, waiting for the next
task.â€ The servant replied. This was well known to everyone and there
was no need to hide.
Moreover, now in their eyes, Ye Lang was a living dead. It was no matter
to tell him some secrets. For this same reason, they did not guard
against Ye Lang as strongly as they did against outsiders.
Certainly, they would not say anything secret. Even internal members did
not necessarily know the secrets, as they had no right to know.
â€œSo that explains it. Then why didnâ€™t I see you yesterday?â€ Ye Lang
thought of this suddenly, as he didnâ€™t see any of the common people
â€œIn the evening, most of us will go for break. We are not allowed to
know some things, so weâ€™ll try not to know anything we should not
know.â€ The servant answered, with some hint of expectations, hoping
that someday he could know these things, or rather, he could become a
member of the Coldblood Group.
â€œNo wonder!â€ With this word, Ye Lang moved on with his walk. On the
way, he caught many peopleâ€™s eyes. Although they pretended as if
nothing was wrong, from the look they gave unconsciously, it could be
seen that they were quite curious of Ye Langâ€™s presence.
Ye Langâ€™s presence here appeared to be the strangest thing so far!
As to why Ye Lang found nothing strange, which would make other people
suspicious, the reason was simple that he never thought of these things,
not caring about why others didnâ€™t find or suspect anything wrong.
Certainly, the things he wanted to figure out, he would do it quickly.
Like as soon he entered this large courtyard, he noticed that there were
many alchemy arrays hidden in this place. The function of these alchemy
arrays was to confuse the eyes, so that people outside can not see
inside, to not raise any doubt or suspicion.
After the walk, nothing special happened. Ye Lang went back to read
books. He was studying these esoteric alchemies, which focused his
attention to some things.
In the following days, it was basically the same story of Ye Langâ€™s
life: everyday he would read books, take a walk after meals, and go to
Everybody seemed to get used to Ye Langâ€™s presence, seeing him walking
in the large courtyard, sometimes even leaving him alone, for someone
would go and stop him immediately as long as his movements were unusual.
During this period, Coldblood Thirteen stayed inside the lab all the
time, not coming out at all. He should be completing his experiment and
should be alive if no accident occurred.
This was Ye Langâ€™s guess. He said that doing alchemy experiments was
risky; if there was something wrong, he would survive with minor injuries
at best, or surely die with no body or bone left at worst.
But if it was Coldblood Thirteen, there should not be any accident.
Right, there should not beâ€¦â€¦
â€œAhâ€¦â€¦â€ After reading a book, Ye Lang stretched and closed the
book, â€œWell, now that Iâ€™ve finished reading the book. Itâ€™s time for
practice. There are some materials inside right now!â€
What Ye Lang meant by â€œinsideâ€ was the first and second labs. He did
have lots of alchemy materials on hand, but he did not have some special
materials needed for these esoteric alchemies.
Certainly, it couldâ€™ve also worked if Ye Lang used other materials as
an alternative. All he needed to know was the principle of these
techniques, which he could apply to his own alchemy.
However, he had to try these techniques anyhow. Only by trying could he
understand the techniques thoroughly, or otherwise, knowledge on books
was just words paper and would not turn into his knowledge.
Ye Lang did not realize that with this he may be found out by Coldblood
Thirteen, who would treat him properly this time and would not let him
read the books at his will or move around freely as it was now. But for
the moment, he should be fairly free.
In this way, Ye Lang did experiments in the lab and proved his thoughts
time and time again. Some time passed by like that, while Coldblood
Thirteen still didnâ€™t come out.
If Coldblood Thirteen knew what Ye Lang was doing here, he would dash out
at once. Nonsense, if I still stay inside, my lab is going to be in ruins.
Saying that youâ€™re just doing simple experiments, but why do you then
often try something strange, not only destroying my materials, but also
bringing a calamity without any reason?
Moreover, you can use as many materials as you like. Why do you still
feather your own nest, putting those rare materials into your own pocket?
Though this is indeed not the third lab and materials here are not the
most important ones, it still takes efforts to get them.
But he never knew that it was Ye Langâ€™s habit to try odd ideas and
often come up with some dangerous objects. In this, Zhen Xiaoyan and the
others had a lot of experience, as they had always innocently got into
troubles caused by Ye Lang since childhood.
If they knew that Ye Lang was fiddling with alchemy, they would go as far
away as possible for they feared that the defensive arrays in this
alchemical lab were not strong enough for Ye Lang to destroy.
Ye Lang seemed to understand this point, so he tried to do all the
experiments in the second lab, which had fewer things inside. Certainly,
he put aside those useless things in his ring temporarily.
Thatâ€™s it, just put them aside temporarily, not make them his things!
One thing was quite strange though, which Coldblood Thirteen would not
understand: He had asked someone to watch Ye Lang here. Why still leave
him alone, acting recklessly?
About this, the reason was simple: For some time, Ye Lang never did
anything out of line, nor did he stay in the lab. Therefore, the group
member thought he had no interest in this and stopped watching him.
Now the group member had already gotten used to the existence of Ye Lang
and didnâ€™t pay special attention to where he was or what he was doing,
so no one cared about his business.
