Chapter 182: Trying Alchemy
Jun Shang had said that he will only take half a month at most before he comes back.
But a fortnight has already passed, and Jun Shang still doesn’t show any signs of waking up.
It can’t be, did something happen in Xiuxian Continent?
There’s suddenly some sounds of footsteps from upstairs. Han Ye raises his head and looks up, then he hears Miss Muyan’s voice.
Should he go up and talk to Miss Muyan, tell her that Jun Shang hasn’t returned yet?
But thinking about it, Han Ye still restrains himself and stays to guard by Di Ming Jue’s side.
Right now, the most important thing for him is only Jun Shang’s safety.
Han Ye doesn’t know that in the near future, because of this decision, he’d wish that he could knock himself in the head.
Along with the reputation of Muyan’s special draught spreading throughout Xia’an,
as well as Ru Yan-girl’s efficient way of operating the place, Junji Drugstore’s business has become more and more prosperous.
Even when there’s no special draught for sale, it’s still packed and overcrowded.
However, unlike the hustle and bustle in front of the shop,
the small courtyard behind behind it is very quiet at this time.
Inside the space, the green grass is lush and there’s a gentle breeze.
The fat rabbit shifts its body on the meadow. It can’t help but perk its head up and look at a not-so-distance spot.
The mung-bean eyes blink and reveal a trace of puzzlement.
The little master and the female devil, what are they up to?
Why is there a huge tripod in front of them?
The fat rabbit tilts its head to the side. It suddenly stands up and hops towards Muyan and Xiao Bao’s direction.
“Niangqin can only refine the Clear Heart Dan right now.”
“There’s Sky Heart Flower, the Black Tongue Orchid, as well as the nine pieces of Three-tailed Wind Leaf.”
Xiao Bao’s little face is stretched taut, carefully and conscientiously laying out the needed ingredients in front of Muyan.
Muyan shifts her eyes from the Dan Recipe in her hand to her son’s face. She gently pinches his tiny face, “Thank you, Xiao Bao.”
She looks at the tripod furnace in front of her, then at the medicinal herbs by the side. Muyan slightly frowns, there’s a hint of hesitation.
Currently, it can be said she’s already very skilled when it comes to refining draughts.
But making elixirs is actually a field she’s never touched before.
Elixirs and draughts only have the difference of a stage, but it’s the difference between heaven and earth.
In the Yanwu Continent, it can be said that there are a lot of draught refiners, but there are only a handful of people who can make elixirs.
The reason for this is because refining elixirs requires a special inheritance.
Without that special inheritance, you won’t be able to succeed in alchemy even if you have a formula.
Muyan slightly narrows her eyes and raises a hand. She lights up a match and tosses it, then a fire is ignited under the Pill Furnace.
Everyone said that it’s impossible to do alchemy without an inheritance.
But she doesn’t believe this maxim.
Especially when she thinks of Gong Qianxue and Jian Feng in her previous life.
Thinking of how she and her child were refined into elixirs by Jian Feng.
The hatred in her heart becomes turbulent like a torrential river.
In this life, she wants Gong Qianxue and Jian Feng to die without a burial place, and make them completely fall from grace, left without anything at all.
“Niangqin…” Xiao Bao’s voice enters her ears, “you should put the Sky Heart Flower in.”
Muyan returns to her senses. The chill in her eyes and the flood of murderous intent also retreats, turning soft and gentle.
“When niangqin starts refining in a moment, Xiao Bao should step back a little farther, and you mustn’t let yourself get injured, okay?”
This time, Xiao Bao isn’t willfully stubborn as he obediently nods his head.
As the temperature of the Dan Furnace gets higher and higher, Muyan very carefully takes the ingredients and places them inside the furnace.
Next is the most important step.
Dissolve all the herbs in the right order then combine them.
In order to do this, the current Muyan can only use her Internal Force.
