Chapter 35 – Soul Refining Pill
Everyone was silent, looking at Jiang Chen with anticipation. There were all Mortal Core warriors, and just a single decision from them could shake Red city. But now they had all laid their hopes onto a young man who was barely 15 years old.
They were not as arrogant and dignified as before. They were just some old men from the Yan family who had watch how Yan Chen Yu grew up. She was cute, clever and as pretty as an angel. She was the angel sent by the gods. Everyone in the Yan family from the elders to the youngsters all considered her to be a precious princess, and if she died, everyone would be in deep sorrow.
When they actually found out that Yan Chen Yu actually had a Nine-Yin body, each and every one of them started feeling large amounts of regret. What Jiang Chen had told them was still resounding within their minds. They were stupid. If Yan Chen Yu died, then it would be their fault.
Destroying their precious princess with their own hands, destroying a peerless genius that was only seen once every ten thousand years… If anything bad happened to Yan Chen Yu, no one would be able to forgive themselves. Everyone would live the rest of their lives in regret.
This kind of ending was not something they desired to see, and the young man in front of them was their only hope.
Yan Zhan Yun’s expression was basically that of a beggar. He was afraid that Jiang Chen would reject him, because no one else except for Jiang Chen could save Yan Chen Yue by now.
A soft sigh echoed in the hall. Yan Chen Yu stood up slowly from her seat and started walking with small steps across the hall until she reached Jiang Chen’s destination.
“Mister Jiang, I now know the real root of my disease. I don’t have much else to worry about. Yu’er and Mister Jiang has never met before, there’s no reason for Mister Jiang to worry too much about my disease.”
Yan Chen Yu said lightly with her face looking just like the face of someone who was about to die and was telling her last wish. She spoke with such a casual tone, but Jiang Chen could clearly see the loneliness in her eyes.
Maybe Yan Chen Yu really was not afraid of dying. She had been suffering from the chilling cold in her body all these years, and she was well prepared for the day where she would have to face her death.
But, not being afraid of death didn’t mean she wanted to die. Nobody would want to die, especially those who were still young. But what happened to Yan Chen Yu only brought her a feeling of helplessness.
Yan Chen Yu didn’t blame her father, and she would never blame the elders either. She understood that they were all just trying to help her, even though the end result was that they had stopped the construction of the ninth Yin meridian in her body.
“Mister Jiang, no matter what, Yu’er wants to thank you for all this.”
Yan Chen Yu raised her head and looked at Jiang Chen with her beautiful eyes.
Crystal clear, a look into her eyes would make anyone feel their heart painfully throb. It was a look of despair, struggle, and unwillingness.
The look she gave him was like a needle-prick in Jiang Chen’s heart, making his heart beat much faster.
‘I have to save her! I must save her!’
Right at this moment, Jiang Chen made a firm decision. A decision so firm he had never done anything similar.
“I will not let you die.”
Jiang Chen said casually. His word had become like a warm stream that flowed right into Yan Yu Chen’s heart, causing her weak body to tremble.
“Brother Jiang Chen, you really have the way to save Yu’er? That’s great, that’s really great!”
Yan Zhan Yun was so happy that tears almost started flowing down from his eyes.
“Hmph! If you guys continued to feed her the Pure-Yang fruit, even if I had unlimited knowledge, I still wouldn’t be able to save her anymore!”
Jiang Chen groaned at them and walked back into the meeting hall.
Hearing what Jiang Chen said, every one of them including Yan Zhan Yun broke out into a cold sweat and felt lucky that Jiang Chen was here. Without him, they wouldn’t have known the real reason behind Yan Chen Yu’s body, and they would definitely have had her consume the Pure-Yang fruit immediately.
Yan Zhan Yun patted Yan Meng’s shoulder and said, “Yan Meng, you’ve done something great this time, something really great!”
Yan Meng suddenly felt like he had been struck by happiness. It was so sudden that he almost couldn’t accept it. This was all because of Jiang Chen. Who would have ever thought that just by simply hiring a young man from the Mercenary Square, he would be able to obtain a gem?
Right now Yan Meng felt endless gratitude towards Jiang Chen. If it wasn’t for Jiang Chen, then not only would Yan Chen Yu be destined to die, he would also be dead in the mountain range by now.
“Mister Jiang, do you really have a way to save me?”
Yan Chen Yu looked at Jiang Chen with her beautiful big eyes, now filled with desire.
“Of course! Not only am I going to heal you… I will also help you successfully construct the last meridian so that you can become a peerless genius! The Nine-Yin body is incredibly rare, and it would only be a pity if we let it go to waste.
Jiang Chen teased.
“Brother Jiang Chen, how are you going to save Yu’er?”
Yan Zhan Yun asked impatiently.
“There’s only one way to heal young lady Yan completely, and that is to get rid of all the Fiery Dragon fruit remains in her body. I will also need to cleanse all the Pure-Yang materials in her body which you have been feeding her for all these years. Then we will let the ninth meridian develop on its own.”
Jiang Chen continued, “But, those Pure-Yang materials are deeply rooted in young lady Yan’s body, and it will extremely difficult for me to get rid of them completely, especially for the Fiery Dragon fruit remains. Young lady Yan’s body is incredibly weak right now, so if I try to clean it by force, the Yin and Yang will collide, and I am afraid her body would explode immediately.”
What Jiang Chen said only made Yan Zhan Yun feel even more regret. He couldn’t stop worrying and asked again, “Brother Jiang Chen, I believe you have a way to deal with this?”
“Yes I do have a way, but I’ll need something first.”
Jiang Chen said.
“Whatever Brother Jiang Chen needs, just let us know. As long as it isn’t some extremely rare precious item, the Misty Rain Tower will be able to get them for you!”
Yan Zhan Yun said hurriedly.
“I don’t want to hide this from you all, but my soul is wounded. In order to save young lady Yan, I will need to heal my soul first. If not, I will not be able to help her.”
Jiang Chen said honestly.
“Yan Meng, go to the Misty Rain Tower immediately, find every single pill and potion that can heal a person’s soul, then bring them over here!”
Yan Zhan Yun turned around and told Yan Meng. Although Jiang Chen asked for something for himself before he could start healing Yan Chen Yu, everyone here including Yan Zhan Yun didn’t have a single complaint about that. There weren’t scared Jiang Chen would run away after getting the items.
Their instincts told them that Jiang Chen was not someone like that. Furthermore, Jiang Chen was the only one who could tell them Yan Chen Yu’s real situation. None of the other grandmasters were able to do this. Now, Yan Chen Yu’s life was in Jiang Chen’s hands, which was why no matter what request he made, they would do their absolute best to try and fulfill it.
“Alright, I’ll go right now.”
Yan Meng was about to turn around and leave, but a Mortal Core warrior stopped him.
The man who spoke was an old man wearing luxurious clothing. He was the senior elder of the Misty Rain Tower, Yan Hong Tai. He was a mid-stage Mortal Core warrior, and in the Yan family, his position was only second to Yan Zhan Yun.
The Misty Rain Tower was controlled and managed by him.
“Chief, do you remember that in 3 days there will be a grand auction in the Misty Rain Tower?”
Yan Hong Tai asked.
“Yes I know.”
Yan Zhan Yun replied.
“The item in the grand finale of the auction is a low-grade Earth rank Soul Refining Pill. This pill came from the inner sections of the Qi province, and it was concocted by a grand alchemist. It is also a 100% effectiveness pill!”
Yan Tai Hong said. Jiang Chen’s eyes lit up upon hearing this.
“A low-grade Earth rank Soul Refining Pill, I’m so lucky!”
Jiang Chen felt extreme joy in his heart. The damage to his soul was serious, and if he used an ordinary pill or rare items it would be hard to heal l. This Soul Refining Pill, however, was a pill that was specifically used to heal the soul. It was a pill made from 49 herbs which could all nourish the soul. If Jiang Chen could get this pill and consume it, it would not only fully heal his soul, but it would also strengthen it. Once the soul was strengthened, it would also help his cultivation.
The alchemist who could concoct a 100% effectiveness pill must at least be an late stage Earth rank alchemist.
The Misty Rain Tower being able to obtain a precious pill like this really surprised Jiang Chen.
“Uncle Tai, please bring the Soul Refining Pill to Brother Jiang Chen.”
Yan Zhan Yun said without any hesitation.
Yan Tai Hong hesitated and the rest of the people furrowed their brows. A pill that could heal the soul and strengthen it was worth a lot of money, and this 100% effectiveness Soul Refining Pill was also an Earth rank pill. Its value was unmeasurable. If it was sold at an auction, then the price would at least be 100,000 gold coins.
If it wasn’t a precious pill, then the Misty Rain Tower would definitely not sell this item for their grand finale.
“If I can get this Soul Refining Pill, then I will be able to heal young lady Yan in at most 3 days.”
Jiang Chen said indifferently.
“Uncle Tai, just go. Bring the Soul Refining Pill here, the life of Yu’er is priceless!”
Yan Zhan Yun said.
“Chief, the price of this Soul Refining Pill is really high, are you not afraid that this kid will be unable to heal the young lady even after obtaining the pill?”
Yan Tai Hong whispered to Yan Zhan Yun through his Divine Sense.
“I don’t think Jiang Chen is someone like that. Furthermore, only he is able to save Yu’er. Speak no more, just go and get it!”
Yan Zhan Yun said.
“There’s no need to go and get it. The Soul Refining Pill is with me right now.”
Yan Tai Hong reached into his pocket and withdrew a white jade box. A thumb sized pill could be seen clearly through the translucent cover of this white jade box.
Although it was still in the box, Jiang Chen could still feel the strong energy from the pill. His soul couldn’t stop throbbing.
Yan Tai Hong looked at the jade box, and although he was reluctant, he still handed it over to Jiang Chen.
“Prepare a room for me, no one is allowed to disturb me. Once the damage to my soul is recovered, I will immediately help young lady Yan. Also, prepare a portion of herbs for a Cleansing Pill, I will need that to help young lady Yan.”
Jiang Chen said.
“Brother Jiang Chen, we have a Clean Pill in the Misty Rain Tower, we can go get it immediately!”
Yan Zhan Yun said.
“Is it a 100% effectiveness Cleansing pill?”
Jiang Chen looked at Yan Zhan Yun.
“No it isn’t, our Misty Rain Tower alchemists can only concoct Restoration Pills with 100% effectiveness, but they cannot concoct Cleansing Pills with 100% effectiveness.”
Yan Zhan Yun answered.
“Then just prepare the herbs required. The cleansing pill is for young lady Yan to consume, and she cannot afford to have any more impurities within her body.”
Jiang Chen said.
“Don’t tell me Brother Jiang Chen is also an alchemist? Are you able to concoct a Cleansing Pill with 100% effectiveness?”
Yan Tai Hong asked.
Jiang Chen didn’t reply to him. Instead, soul energy was released from his body. He flipped his palm, and a fiery red flame appeared on top, dancing non-stop.
