At that moment, Mister Huo and Mister Chi were not arguing anymore. Mister Huo nodded, smiled then said: “It’s a strike of luck indeed. Lin Feng has only been practicing cultivation for less than a decade. Yet he can already fuse with the earth he can also defeat cultivators of the Xuan Qi layer even though he only had the power of the eighth Ling Qi layer. In fact, I particularly look forward to seeing how strong and powerful he will be in the future.”
“Yes.” Said Mister Chi while nodding. Mister Huo had already told him about all the things which had happened in Celestial River. Lin Feng had been at the core of all these incidents. Lin Feng’s natural talent was rare. The so-called geniuses of the biggest sects couldn’t rival Lin Feng.
Such geniuses as Lin Feng maybe appeared once every millennium. If they didn’t die young, they usually reached the heavens.
Mister Chi looked impatient to see an authentic genius grow up. That would indubitably be very exciting.
Lin Feng slightly smiled while shaking his head. He indeed had a high natural talent but for the time being, he wasn’t strong enough. There were so many people who were much stronger than him. He needed to be monstrously strong. If someday, he managed to reach the heavens and walked above the clouds while looking down at all living creatures, what a mighty and epic moment would that be!
“Mister Huo, Mister Chi, let’s refine some Xuan level spirit blood pills together. We’ll first start heating the cauldron.” Said Lin Feng. Mister Huo and Mister Chi looked delighted. They both looked forward to concocting some pills altogether, the three of them. Refining some Xuan level pills of medium quality was extremely complex, even though Mister Chi and Mister Huo had been arguing, they also didn’t really intend to refine Xuan level pills of medium quality.
But Lin Feng had opened their eyes and it was like a ray of sunshine through the clouds, it seemed like nothing was impossible.
If Mister Huo and Mister Chi had concocted pills, they would only have been able to concoct Xuan level pills of lower quality, but since the earth fusion enabled them to be in symbiosis, the level of the pills could be increased significantly. They were, of course, willing to give it a try.
Mister Huo and Mister Chi turned Lin Feng.
“Is everything ready?” Asked Lin Feng, immediately after, the two old men nodded.
Lin Feng closed his eyes and entered in the mysterious dimension which enabled him to fuse with the earth. The strength of his soul emerged and invaded the entire atmosphere. That strength wrapped up the strength of the two old men’s souls and immediately after moved into the cauldron.
A fireball appeared and embraced the cauldron, boiling the spiritual herbs which were inside.
“Fiery herbs.” Said Mister Huo sounding indifferent. Mister Chi understood what that meant and then his body faintly shook and then some pure Qi strength moved into the cauldron breaking apart the fiery herbs and evenly spreading them in the concoction.
At that moment, Lin Feng was responsible for making sure that their souls remained on the same wavelength. Mister Huo was in charge of maintaining the fire while Mister Chi was in charge of the concoction.
Every single step had to be carried out rigorously. The smell of the pills slowly started invading the entire atmosphere. The odor around the cauldron was getting more and more intense.
“Sanguine flames!” Said Mister Huo after a while in a low voice. Mister Chi had already prepared everything. A long blood-red thread spread in the air and moved into the cauldron.
“A thousand lotus leaves!” Shouted Mister Huo. Immediately after, a thousand lotus leaves moved towards the cauldron. The thousand lotus leaves couldn’t be cooked at the same speed though because of the fire.
“I will help you.” Said Mister Chi in a low voice. His incredibly strong soul came to wrap up the leaves and dispersed them evenly in above the fire, enabling them to gradually melt into the sanguine flames.
That part was very difficult but was crucial as well. At that moment, Mister Huo and Mister Chi were anxiously frowning. They released the entire strength of their souls which made cold sweat unceasingly drip from their bodies. It was consuming all of their soul strength and pushing them to the limit.
At that moment, the lotus leaves were starting to slide to the side. Mister Huo and Mister Chi started shaking. Had they failed?
At that moment, the great soul, which had been wrapping up theirs, disappeared as well. In a flash, the wonderful feeling, which had invaded their hearts before, disappeared. Hopelessness replaced their positive feelings. Their strength wasn’t sufficient to refine Xuan level pills of medium quality. They didn’t control the strength of their soul with enough mastery. Maybe after breaking through to the fourth Xuan Qi layer, they would be able to achieve their aim.
The strength of their souls had already come out of the cauldron, however, at that moment, the strength of a soul kept moving into the cauldron. It wrapped up the thousand lotus leaves and put them into the sanguine flames. A bright and resplendent red light emerged in the atmosphere. It almost looked like the lotus leaves were about to blossom. It was splendid.
“It’s Lin Feng, he hasn’t given up.”
Mister Huo and Mister Chi’s hearts were pounding. They released the strength of their soul once again. One took control of the spiritual herbs and the other took control of the temperature control. After a brief moment, all the spiritual herbs had melted. At that moment, bright red lotus flowers had appeared on the lotus leaves. It was absolutely gorgeous.
“Close!” Shouted Mister Huo. The lotus flowers slowly closed themselves, immediately after, the fire lost in intensity. The smell of the pills was getting stronger and stronger. A bright and resplendent red light was illuminating the atmosphere and kept revolving above the mouth of the cauldron.
“Mister Chi!” Shouted Mister Huo. He then yelled again, his voice was making the atmosphere vibrate: “Finish the pill!”
“BOOM!” A bright and resplendent red light burst from the cauldron. Mister Chi had anticipated this already. He jumped up in the air breaking through the ceiling, abruptly raised his hand and grabbed something within the red light. He immediately came back down and opened the palm of his hand. Amazingly, a small oval object appeared. It was illuminated by a red light which kept fluttering around it.
“It’s a success.”
The three of them suddenly looked truly excited. They had worked together relying on three very strong cultivators’ strength. They had all poured endless effort into this process and become closer because of it.
It sounded simple but concocting Xuan level spirit blood pills had sucked up a lot of their energy. Besides, at that moment, Mister Huo and Mister Chi felt like he was going to collapse.
“Mister Huo, this time, Lin Feng is the one who has used the most strength to concoct that Xuan level spirit blood pill. He is also the one who has provided us with the recipe. Finally, at the most crucial moment, he is also the one saved the situation. If he hadn’t been there, we wouldn’t have been able to refine that spirit blood pill. Therefore, it belongs to Lin Feng, what do you think?” Said Mister Chi. They had only prepared the ingredients to concoct the pill. Besides, obtaining one pill was already an exceptional success for them, let alone making more.
“I, of course, have no objection to that. The pill belongs to Lin Feng.” Said Mister Huo while smiling and nodding.
When Lin Feng heard them, a warm feeling invaded his heart. In the continent, there were many evildoers who constantly plotted against other people but there were also many people who were very kind and who were honest and sincere to others. Mister Huo and Mister Chi belonged to the second category of people. That pill was Xuan level spirit blood pill of medium quality. It would have been incredibly useful to them, particularly if it helped them advance before a potentially fatal battle but they preferred giving it to Lin Feng.
Of course, it was because they were very honest. Besides, Mister Huo and Mister Chi were very good friends already and neither would disagree.
Lin Feng smiled and shook his head: “Mister Huo, Mister Chi. The three of us being together to concoct the pills was absolutely essential. This is the result of our team work and it is a success for us as a group. Nobody has more merit than the other. As far as the pill recipe is concerned, I had already promised it to Mister Huo so it doesn’t count. Therefore, it is not my recipe and the pill does not belong to me.”
Lin Feng refused to take the spirit blood pill.
If he wanted to kill people, he used his sword.
But if people were kind to him, he was happy to make friends with them.
“No, in terms of strength, that pill is very beneficial to you.” Said Mister Huo while shaking his head.
“Mister Huo, that pill would be very beneficial to me, however it would be better if one of you took it. With my current strength, taking the pill would be a waste. I would not be able to absorb the full power of the pill. It would be better if one of you took it, if you become stronger, that will also help me.”
Lin Feng once more declined the two old men’s offer. Actually, Lin Feng was just stating facts. A cultivator of the Ling Qi layer taking a Xuan level pill of medium quality was a waste, he would not be able to absorb even half of its power.
“Mister Huo, you can take the pill.” Said Mister Chi not trying to convince Lin Feng anymore. Instead, he was giving it to Mister Huo.
But Mister Huo also shook his head and said: “Old friend, even though you are not as good as me at concocting pills, you are still stronger than me, this pill is for you, it would be more appropriate for you to take it.”
“Stop talking nonsense! Since when am I not as good as you at concocting pills?” Said Mister Chi angrily.
“If you’re not taking it, you can try to give it to Lin Feng again.” Said Mister Huo with a disdainful expression on his face which made Lin Feng smile wryly. How come these two were talking about concocting ability again….?
“I don’t know, but, Mister Huo, Mister Chi, that pill must be taken as soon as possible for maximum potency. It doesn’t matter if you are not interested.” When Lin Feng finished talking, he immediately made an eat gesture to them by placing his fingers to his mouth, Mister Huo and Mister Chi looked at each other and both immediately burst into a fit of laughter, at the same time.
