Chapter 338 – Ye Wu Chen’s News Part 10
In the alchemy elder’s courtyard, Song Ran sat in the hall as he looked preoccupied outside the room. Anxiousness was slowly expressed on his elderly face as time passed.
Suddenly, a white-robed figure entered his eyes as it walked under the sunlight.
Song Ran’s eyes lit up and he hastily went forth to tug on the young girl’s arm and pull her into the hall. “Come! Come! Come! Little girl, sit. Quickly sit.”
Mu Ru Yue was forcefully pressed onto a chair. She then lifted her head to look at the smiling elder as she asked calmly, “Elder Song, why have you sought for me?”
“About that…” Song Ran rubbed his fist together and chuckled before saying, “Little girl, where did you obtain that pill furnace?”
“That’s right, the phoenix furnace in your hand.”
Mu Ru Yue was stunned and looked astonished at the elder’s smiling face. She was greatly shocked.
‘This elder knows about the phoenix furnace?
‘The phoenix furnace is just a pill furnace that wandered into the pill assembly. How, then, would he know about the phoenix furnace?’
Song Ran had his gaze on Mu Ru Yue from the start. He sighed in lament after seeing her shocked appearance.
He originally thought that this young girl must have a relationship with Senior Yue since the phoenix furnace was in her possession. It was clear that she had gotten the divine furnace without knowing the true function of the divine furnace.
“Little girl, do you know that this phoenix furnace was a possession of Senior Yue? The phoenix furnace is a divine instrument!” Song Ran voice trembled with excitement. “A divine instrument! There are just a few of them in this world. It has been rumoured that the phoenix furnace was the sole pill furnace that can manufacture divine rank pills as other ordinary pill furnaces wouldn’t be able to withstand the power of a divine rank pill.”
At that moment, Mu Ru Yue quickly grabbed her storage ring as though she had just met an enemy. It looked as though Song Ran was going to steal her item anytime now.
Song Ran blinked dazedly as he stared helplessly at the young girl. With slight resentment in his tone, he continued, “Little girl, do you think this old man is someone that opens his eyes wide at the sight of profit? If I wanted to steal your item, I wouldn’t have waited until now nor would I have spoken so many words to you.”
Mu Ru Yue pondered this and agreed. She then released her hand and silently listened to the elder’s explanation.
“The phoenix furnace isn’t something anyone can use so your luck must be great to be able to obtain the recognition of the phoenix furnace.” Song Ran shook his head as he watched on with subconscious jealousy.
‘The little girl’s luck is too good for such a priceless treasure as the phoenix furnace to be in her possession.’
“Someone gave the phoenix furnace to me.” Mu Ru Yue slightly rose her brows. If it wasn’t that she attended the pill assembly that year, she wouldn’t have obtained the phoenix furnace.
Song Ran paused for a moment as he forcefully suppressed the fury in his heart.
He really wanted to kill this woman with a smack!
‘Someone gave it to her? This is clearly naked boasting!’
“The phoenix furnace was used by Senior Yue thousands of years ago. It was due to Senior Yue that people knew of its existence. But the phoenix furnace had similarly disappeared after the death of Senior Yue. It is beyond my imagination that I could be so lucky as to personally see it. No one in the world would have any regret in their life if they were able to see a tool previously possessed by a revered expert.”
Song Ran was slightly emotional. If he were able to see the Heaven Dragon Flame Sword in his life as well, then perhaps he might faint with bliss…
“So it was Senior Yue’s item.” Mu Ru Yue nodded, enlightened.
Now it wasn’t a mystery as to how she had gotten the acknowledgement of the phoenix furnace. There was such a reason behind it.
