World Defying Dan God - Chapter 19
Yao Tianhua, his fair and handsome face, started to turn ugly. His face muscles are also slightly twitching. He was also shocked by the Chen Xiang's alchemy technique. He had not thought that in this world there is still another young alchemist that was on par with him!
Chen Xiang placed the five Quenching body dan on his palm. Like eating candies, he puts them in his mouth, and while smiling, he said to Yao Tianhua: ’’Now you can give me those herbs for Baptizing marrow dan.’’
Watching Chen Xiang casually eating the just refined Quenching body dan, the corners of everyone's mouth were twitching and cursed Chen Xiang prodigal skills. They wish they could ruthlessly trample him with their feet. Treating pills as snacks was dealing extreme blow to them. Do all alchemist like him usually treat pills as candies?
Spirit dan hall's lord two hands were shivering as they gave three sets of herbs to Chen Xiang wearing a look of surprise, he asked: ’’You are not going to try to refining Baptizing marrow dan, right?’’
Chen Xiang scratched his head: ’’First time trying is not always a bad thing, your Spirit dan hall is selling pills so expensively, and I can only resort to refining.’’
Chen Xiang received the herbs and turned around to leave. He turned his head when he reached the door and said to Yao Tianhua: ’’Yao young master, a few days later will be the time of the alchemy competition. At that time I'm hoping that you will be able to raise the gambling stakes and bet with me! Since it is a competition, it should have a little more fun. At that time, I will also raise the stakes and if you are not able to match it, you do not need to come and compete.’’
Chen Xiang departs with mischief, and everybody inside Spirit dan hall are suddenly discussing about his terms. A thousand year Blood spirit grass as stakes is able to scare even heaven and man, and he still wants to raise it!
[TLN: Too exaggerating :)]
Yao Tianhua coldly snorts with anger, then goes upstairs.
Inside Spirit dan hall, the Spirit dan hall's lord murmurs: ’’Impossible, he is only sixteen year old. It is impossible for him to refineBaptizing marrow dan......’’
Chen Xiang's mood was very good, because he got three sets of mature herbs for Baptizing marrow dan for free, now he will soon be able to refine Baptizing marrow dan.
’’Little devil, do not turn the boat in a trench, it's better to be careful!’’ Su Meiyao reminded him.
[AllisonZ: I think that means not to stir things up too much]
’’Compared to other things, alchemy is really boring! You should just go and chop him to pieces.’’ Bai Youyou's chilling voice came. Hearing this, Chen Xiang could not help but shiver. He knows Bai Youyou is peerless she-devil lord practicing Devil exercises, and now suddenly he doesn't want to practice Bai Youyou's devil exercises.
Chen Xiang returned to Chen family villa. He inquired from Chen Tianhu and learned Xue Xianxian's father and daughter are both staying as guest in the city lord villa. Moreover many other families of Wohu city are frequently paying them a visit. It must be known that Xue Xianxian's father is someone with many connections.
Chen Xiang arrived at the secret underground stone room. To refine Baptizing marrow dan, first he needs to concentrate and cannot be bothered.
Opening the paper around the herbs, Su Meiyao fiddled the herbs with her exuberant smooth fingers, and with satisfaction said: ’’Fifty years old Blood ginseng, fifty years old Spirit leaf grass, Profound elemental fruit and Yang fire flower. These four herbs qualities are pretty good, as for the rest of the herbs, they are of ordinary quality, but it will not affect refining the Baptizing marrow dan,’’
Chen Xiang pick up a white fruit as big as walnut and also picks up a small flower with appearance similar to sun flower, which isProfound elemental fruit and Yang fire flower. Their prices is very expensive as they take dozens of years to mature.
Su Meiyao and Bai Youyou do not want to stay inside the ring all day. So whenever they get the chance, they will come out. At the same time they chat with Chen Xiang, this helps them feel not too bored.
Chen Xiang also likes it very much when both stunning beauties emerge from time to time. After all, they are very beautiful and their appearance makes people feel pleasant and happy. Accompanying the two beauties is very wonderful thing.
’’Meiyao sister, if I use Dragon saliva exercise to mature the herbs for Baptizing marrow dan, how long do you think it would probably take?’’ Chen Xiang asks. He also knows herbs for Baptizing marrow dan are dozens of years old.
Su Meiyao rolling her pretty eyes, said: ’’It will probably take ten days! You now are at 6th level of mortal martial realm. Dragon saliva exercise also would have increased its abilities.’’
Ten days to mature spirit herbs by dozens of year. This makes Chen Xiang pretty surprised.
Su Meiyao said: ’’Start refining now. When refining Baptizing marrow dan, you need to pay attention to two main points! First, because more herbs are required to make the pill and each herb ability to withstand the flames vary, you need to control of your flames very accurately to make sure you don't burn some auxiliary herbs! Second, when it is time to solidify pill, you have to comprehend it yourself at that time.’’
Chen Xiang tries to remember each and every word. Then he faced the not so far standing elegant beauty, said: ’’Youyou sister, can you please return inside the ring? The cold Qi emitted by you will affect my control over my flames.........’’
Bai Youyou complexion immediately became cold, causing Chen Xiang to hastily say: ’’Youyou sister......you are really beautiful. If not, as a last resort I also do not want you stunning beauty to return to the ring.’’
Su Meiyao hearing this, laughed again and again: ’’Beautiful senior sister, do not scare this little guy. Let him refine pill peacefully.’’
Bai Youyou 'humph' is heard. Then she returned inside the ring.
Chen Xiang started to refine the Baptizing marrow dan, which is mortal level middle grade pill. One pill can be sold for five thousand spirit coins and now since the Spirit dan hall prices are increased it can be sold for ten thousand spirit coins, which is equivalent to one million small spirit coins.
After putting the herbs inside the furnace, Chen Xiang released his flames, simultaneously controlling flames and temperature inside alchemy furnace, the temperature of each region varied, in order to bake those herbs and letting these herbs completely release their respective spirit Qi.
Baptizing marrow dan herbs are not easy to release. Chen Xiang spent more than one hour before grasping the characteristics of each herbs, identifying these herbs degree of fire resistance. At this time, colorful spirit Qi are drifting inside the furnace. These spirit Qi were released by those spirit herbs during their baking by the True Flames. This are the main ingredient in the creation of spirit pills.
The herbs are slowly transforming into herbal powder, while Chen Xiang divine sense is wrapping around the herbal powder. At this time, as long as this 'herbal powder' and the released 'Herbal Qi' are fused, he will be able to successfully congeal them into pill.
Everything started well, but at the last step, Chen Xiang was sweating, because this 'Herbal Qi' was very brutal in nature, making it difficult to fuse different types of 'Herbal Qi'.
’’No wonder being able to refine Baptizing marrow dan needs divine sense. These spirit herb's herbal Qi are very difficult to control!’’ Chen Xiang thinks while adhering. He then concentrates his spirit and released more divine sense, allowing these colourful herbal Qi to fuse together. At last, it turns to black spirit Qi and starts to fuse with the grey herbal powder.
’’I must be successful! Hold on!’’ Chen Xiang's heart only has one thought. Herbal powder and herbal Qi are gradually fusing, but he felt his divine sense is not powerful enough and is unable congeal them into pills.
