The sales assistant quickly brought over a set of drug refining equipment. Mo Wuji had seen
such equipment countless times before. In fact, he had been among the few who used the most
premier equipments back on Earth.
The moment the Eternal Evergreen was brought over, Mo Wuji could tell that it was good stuff;
it was far better than the trashy equipment back in Cheng Yu. Even though its features were not
the same as those on Earth, Mo Wuji actually felt that it was more suitable for refining drugs.
’’Your Eternal Evergreen has arrived. It looks quite advanced,’’ Shen Ling spoke in a
It would be fine if Mo Wuji had a lot of money. However, she knew that Mo Wuji did not have
that much money. As a person who was not wealthy, not only was he staying in a grand suite
which cost 10 thousand gold per month, he even spent 370 thousand on useless drug refining
equipment. It was simply preposterous!
She did not believe that Mo Wuji would be successful, albeit in drug or pill refining. Not
everyone could be a drug refiner; one needed knowledge as well as talent to be one.
Mo Wuji thoroughly checked through his equipment and said casually, ’’I already have the
Immortal Mortal Technique. I should call this equipment: Basic Drug Refining Kit. If not, people
would get jealous.’’
Shen Lian almost laughed out loud. This drug refining equipment and that Basics to Cultivation
would call for jealousy?
’’Sister Shen Lian, can you help me bring this equipment back to the hotel? I still need to get
Mo Wuji saw Shen Lian's face revealing an unhappy expression and he did not continue talking.
He hurriedly took out a one thousand gold note and said, ’’If I return late, Sister Lian can take
this and have a good meal. You don't have to wait for me.’’
Shen Lian did not even have money for a meal. When Mo Wuji took the note out, she
immediately snatched it and kept it. The reason she followed Mo Wuji was to find a chance to
borrow money from him. She couldn't have been waiting and following him for meals all the
One thousand gold was enough to last her for some time.
After sending Shen Lian off, Mo Wuji started exploring and shopping for ingredients.
Chang Luo was the royal empire of Xing Han Empire. As long as you had money, there was
nothing you couldn't buy in Chang Luo.
At the end of the day, Mo Wuji returned to Tian Luo Hotel with a huge bag. He purchased
enough ingredients to brew 50 batches of the channel opening solution.
The price of the ingredients he required wasn't high, so he bought as much as he could. For
instance, for lingzhi fungi, he tried to purchase those above 200 years old.
For lingzhi, anything below a thousand years in age would not be considered a spiritual
ingredient. Furthermore, a thousand year lingzhi itself was graded as a low grade spiritual
ingredient, and wouldn't cost much.
Additionally, he bought a whole pile of dried rations. The worst thing that could happen while
refining drugs is interruptions and disruptions in refining. Thus, it would be quite some time
before he would actually leave his room.
When he returned to the suite, he did not see Shen Lian. Shen Lian had put his equipment in the
Mo Wuji did not need to know much about Shen Lian to know that she must be from great
origins. Naturally, Mo Wuji would not try to find out what she was doing or intended to do.
Returning to his room, Mo Wuji immediately started the concoction of the channel opening
Mo Wuji had concocted tens of batches of channel opening solution before. Thus, it was as
simple as flipping his palm to him.
For a few consecutive days, Mo Wuji did not leave his room. Shen Lian could smell herbal smells
emanating from Mo Wuji's room and knew that he was refining drugs. As a cultivator, she knew
that it was taboo to disturb others whether it was in cultivation or drug refining. Furthermore,
she was not familiar with Mo Wuji, so she wasn't really concerned about what went on
throughout the night in Mo Wuji's room.
After every three days, Mo Wuji would take a break and go out for a stroll before returning to his
work. In such a manner, Mo Wuji spent approximately 20 days to finish all 50 batches of his
In these 20 days, he lost a lot of weight. With 50 batches of ingredients, he managed to concoct
46 bottles of channel opening solution.
If he was not doing it in a hurry, he would not have wasted any of the ingredients.
When he came out again, he still did not see Shen Lian. Spring Immortal's Gate was opening in
the coming few days. Mo Wuji had to grab all the time he could to find a lightning source to
force open his meridians. It was not entirely impossible to find a lightning source here. Chang
Luo was near the sea, so he might actually be able to find some Six-footed Lightning
However, Mo Wuji did not dare to find the lightning crocodiles alone. It took him so much to
finally cultivate; he wasn't going to simply send himself to die.
Perhaps he could look around Chang Luo, and maybe find a team to hunt for lightning
’’Wuji...’’ As Mo Wuji was about to enter the Chang Luo Union gate, a familiar voice called out to
’’Zhenyi, why are with Bu'Er?’’ Mo Wuji was pleasantly surprised, but before he continued, he
stopped abruptly and asked, ’’Bu'Er, who hit you?’’
A whole half of Ding Bu'Er's face was swollen; a red palm mark was still visible on his face.
’’This is not the right place to talk. Let's enter the union first,’’ Yuan Zhenyi said and dragged
Ding Bu'Er and Mo Wuji into the union.
’’What happened?’’ Mo Wuji did not even sit down as he stared at Ding Bu'Er and asked.
Ding Bu'Er was not as carefree and generous as Yuan Zhenyi but he was still a good friend.
Furthermore, if not for his calls back in the Thunder Fog Forest, Mo Wuji might not end up
where he was today.
Ding Bu'Er waved his fist angrily and said, ’’ It was Cao Hao. If I ever have the ability in the
future, I will definitely trample that b*stard's head right under my feet...’’
Ding Bu'Er did not continue; he knew he was merely talking nonsense. Cao Hao was a genius
with impressive spiritual roots, unlike him, who only had mortal roots. How could a person
without spiritual roots compete against Cao Hao? Talking about trampling Cao Hao was just an
attempt to vent his frustrations.
Mo Wuji said calmly, ’’You can take your time and talk.’’
Yuan Zhenyi helped Ding Bu'Er to tell his story, ’’Ding Bu'Er was always following beside Han
Ning. When they reached Chang Luo, Cao Hao brought an immortal master to meet Han Ning,
specially for the Two-leaved Fire Grass. The Two-leaved Fire Grass was particularly important
to the immortal master. After accepting the grass from Han Ning, he immediately took out a
wooden plaque and passed it to Han Ning, accepting her as an outer disciple in his sect.’’
At this moment, Mo Wuji finally understood why Han Ning was desperately looking for the
Two-leaved Fire Grass. Looks like that woman had already made plans; even if she did not get
selected during the Spring Immortal's Gate, she could still be an outer disciple. It was not a bad
’’The immortal master's surname was Lu. After he kept the two strains of Two-leaved Fire
Grass, it was seemingly not enough, and he continued to ask Han Ning where she found it...’’
Yuan Zhenyi stopped here as Ding Bu'Er interrupted and said, ’’This was when I spoke too much,
and blurted that you were the one who found it. When the immortal master asked where you
managed to find it, Han Ning told him that you found the grass growing by a lake on the
outskirts of the Thunder Fog Forest. The immortal master did not continue speaking and
immediately took off. However, I did not expect that Cao Hao would start hitting me the
moment he left. He pushed me to the ground and started kicking me...’’
’’Han Ning did not say anything?’’ Mo Wuji asked solemnly.
Ding Bu'Er shook his head, ’’No. After Cao Hao was done with me, Han Ning came over and told
me that she no longer needed me. I was not a fool. I know when I have been abandoned. I did
not have anywhere to stay so I went to find Brother Zhenyi.’’
Mo Wuji stood up, patted Ding Bu'Er's shoulder and consoled him, ’’Don't worry. One day, I will
help you take your revenge.’’
Ding Bu'Er's words had downplayed Han Ning's efforts in finding the Two-leaved Fire Grass.
Naturally, she would be unhappy. With her self-serving attitude, it was expected that she
chased Dong Bu'Er away.
Yuan Zhenyi also stood up, ’’Wuji, my matter in Chang Luo has also been settled. I'm not going
to be participating in the Spring Immortal's Gate. Instead, I will leave Chang Luo to pursue the
path of martial arts. How about you and Ding Bu'Er?’’
’’Martial arts? Is this because you don't have spiritual roots?’’ Mo Wuji was actually prepared to
share the matter of the channel opening solution with Yuan Zhenyi and Ding Bu'Er.
Yuan Zhenyi shook his head and lifted his head up towards the grand ceiling. ’’Even if I have
spiritual roots, I would still choose to pursue the martial arts. I already had this determination
before I reached Chang Luo. Now that I am set on my path, maybe we might meet again
someday; maybe we might never meet again. Wuji, Bu'Er, this is where we'll bid farewell.
Whether we see each other in the future of not, we will always be friends.’’
Finishing his speech, Yuan Zhenyi turned and walked out the Union. Before Mo Wuji could even
say anything, he was already a distance away. As Mo Wuji and Ding Bu'Er walked out the Union,
they could faintly hear him singing from afar, ’’... Today we bid farewell. Maybe we'll meet
someday. Even if we don't meet. We'll always be friends...’’
