Evil Emperor’s Wild Consort
Chapter 17: The Stern Crown Prince (1)
The reason the Gu household was in an uproar was none other than the crown prince’s birthday tomorrow. Previously, as a good-for-nothing, it didn’t matter if Gu Ruoyun attended such an occasion, but the situation was different now.
This time, the prince’s teacher, one of the strongest members of Weapon Refining Sect would be attending to test the abilities of the younger generation of Azure Dragon Country and see if any had the strength to enter Weapon Refining Sect as an outer disciple.
The Weapon Refining Sect had such a powerful status in the mainland that everyone besides the Dongfang family feared their strength. It was because of this that anyone entering the Weapon Refining Sect, even as a lowly outer disciple, would become a cause for envy.
Therefore, the emperor had sent down an order: every single person had to enter the palace to attend the crown prince’s birthday.
Old General Gu was thus forced to send people to look for Gu Ruoyun’s whereabouts.
Of course, normally, a power as strong as the Weapon Refining Sect wouldn’t recruit people unless they were naturally talented like the crown prince. Even Old General Gu didn’t know what the Weapon Refining Sect’s true motive was this time.
Regardless of the fuss in the Gu household, within the Ancient Divine Pagoda, Gu Ruoyun knew nothing of the situation outside. At this moment, her gaze was fixed firmly on the medicine cauldron before her, two clusters of flames dancing within her clear pupils.
A slight hint of an air current seeped out from the top of the pill cauldron, releasing a cool stream into the air. At this moment, Gu Ruoyun could obviously feel that the spiritual Qi in the surroundings had become much richer than before.
“Girl, the final step of refining pills is to form the pills! When pills are formed, most medicine cauldrons will let out a strong impact. You have to control this or else you’ll have to start over.”
The man’s deep voice sounded right next to Gu Ruoyun’s ear. She took a deep breath as the look in her eyes became more imposing.
Forming the pill body was the last step to refining pills. It was also the most important step, if this step failed, then all the previous efforts would have gone to waste…
Bang bang bang!
With a sudden thrust, a huge impact burst out from within the medicine cauldron, causing the ground to tremor for a while.
Gu Ruoyun could not help but take a few steps back. It was at this moment that the tension around the medicine cauldron loosened, and it descended downwards from where it was floating previously in the air. Her heart tightened for a while, as she hurriedly tried to take control of the cauldron.
Cold sweat slowly dripped down the girl’s pretty face; however, she did not dare to shift her focus in the slightest. Her whole consciousness was wound up tightly, and due to excessive nerves, her thin, weak face became pale white.
Finally, just as Gu Ruoyun was about to lose control, the pills within the medicine cauldron stopped shaking, and quietly settled down to the bottom of the cauldron.
“I finally did it!”
Gu Ruoyun pushed down the joy in her heart, and impatiently opened the cauldron, taking out the five pills silently sitting within.
“Girl, you actually learned how to refine pills in three days. Such an achievement is enough to term you a genius. You have to know that, as the owner of the Ancient Divine Pagoda, this bit of talent is nothing. However, seeing as the process of refining pills cannot be rushed, you can take it slowly.”
Zixie looked at the skinny girl before him, his purple pupils filled with the urge to smile at her unshakeable determination.
“You have to remember that this world obeys the law of the jungle. If you want to live and protect the people you care about, then you must stand at the peak that others can only dream of reaching!”
To stand at the peak of the mainland and accept the worship and surrender of the others in the world; that is the prestige that the owner of the Ancient Divine Pagoda should have.
