Chapter 188 – Martial Palace
Guo Shan immediately fixed his gaze on the pill floating in Jiang Chen’s palm. He could sense the pure energy radiating from the pill, and all the mystical symbols that covered the pill gave it a sense of divinity.
The energy that overflowed from the pill would make anyone who breathed it in feel refreshed, and give him an unparalleled comfortable feeling.
Two bright beams shout out from Big Yellow’s eyes, he kept staring at the pill as he drooled nonstop.
“d.a.m.n it, this pill looks so delicious! It would be best if daddy could take it as an appetizer with this wine!”
Big Yellow said in a heartless manner. But, before he could finish his words, Jiang Chen’s foot slammed into his face, leaving a huge footmark on it.
“d.a.m.ned dog, don’t even think about it! You’re just looking for a hard beating!”
Jiang Chen glared at Big Yellow. Big Yellow knew he was in the wrong, thus, for the first time, he didn’t retort.
“48 herbs combined with Firethorn Savage’s demon soul and Six Solar Holy Water. Finally, I’ve successfully concocted the Profound Six Solar Pill. With this pill, Little Yu will be able to sustain her life-energy.”
Jiang Chen said. He had prepared the Six Solar Holy Water before he started concocting the pill. Jiang Chen cultivated the Six Solar Energies, which allowed him to absorb the pure Yang energy from the natural environment and turn it into Six Solar Holy Water, and this was one of the ingredients that couldn’t be replaced.
“Oh, younger brother…”
Guo Shan unexpectedly started crying out. Tears came rolling, and he couldn’t help but cry his lungs out.
Jiang Chen was confused by Guo Shan’s tears. He had obtained Firethorn Savage’s demon soul and successfully concocted the Profound Six Solar Pill, so Guo Shan should supposedly be happy. Even if he wasn’t happy at all, why would he be crying?
“Older brother Guo, what happened to you? Who bullied you? Was it Big Yellow? Let me bully him back!”
Jiang Chen said seriously, but it actually made Guo Shan cry even louder.
“d.a.m.n it, it is you who made him cry, what does this have to do with me? This old guy is crying because you dealt him a heavy blow!”
Big Yellow jumped in and straightened the situation out.
Hearing this, Jiang Chen finally understood why Guo Shan was crying, it was all because Jiang Chen had successfully concocted a high ranked Profound Six Solar Pill in just one and a half days. Guo Shan was a respectable alchemist in the Qi Province, so this had dealt a really huge blow to his pride.
“Brother, this really is a huge blow to me.”
Guo Shan was happy, but at the same time, he felt somewhat depressed. He was happy because Jiang Chen had finally concocted the Profound Six Solar Pill, and that meant Yan Chenyu wouldn’t die. However, he was depressed because Jiang Chen had dealt a huge blow to his face. He thought that no matter how much of a genius Jiang Chen was, he would need at least 3-4 days to concoct the pill, but he had never thought it would only take him one and a half day. Also, judging from the color of the pill, it was a 100% effectiveness pill. His pill concoction skill was simply astonis.h.i.+ng.
“Older brother, don’t cry… You have learned the Great Soul Derivation skill, your alchemy skills will definitely become much stronger! I’ll go save Little Yu now.”
Jiang Chen patted Guo Shan’s shoulder to show his comfort. After that, he walked towards the direction where Yan Chenyu was resting.
Guo Shan let out a long sigh, then he followed Jiang Chen. Jiang Chen’s existence had taught him what a miracle was. From now onwards, no matter what kind of heavenly defying things happened around Jiang Chen, Guo Shan would never behave like this again.
Yan Chenyu was still laying on the bed within the room quietly, she looked like a sleeping beauty.
Jiang Chen squatted down next to her. He placed his palm on her cold face, then he gently said, “Little Yu, it was Big Bro Jiang Chen’s fault for not being able to protect you. When you recover, I promise; I won’t let you suffer any grievances. Whoever dares bully you, I will kill them.”
Jiang Chen’s voice was soft and gentle, but Guo Shan could feel the determination and cruelty within. No words from this man could be taken as a joke.
Jiang Chen placed the Profound Six Solar Pill into Yan Chenyu’s mouth. When the pill entered her body, in an instant, a ma.s.sive amount of energy emerged from her body. In just a brief moment, a golden colored light barrier appeared outside her body. Yan Chenyu was still sleeping quietly within the barrier. The golden light barrier was like a coc.o.o.n that protected Yan Chenyu, waiting for her to break free and be reborn.
“The Profound Six Solar Pill’s power will be able to guarantee that Little Yu stays alive. She will also be absorbing strength from the pill bit by bit, Little Yu’s cultivation will keep progressing even while she is sleeping. In the future, when I find the Nine Solar Holy Water and let her drink it, Little Yu will immediately wake up, and her cultivation will soar.”
Jiang Chen explained.
Guo Shan nodded his head. He had no doubts about Jiang Chen’s words, the Profound Six Solar Pill contained Firethorn Savage’s demon soul, and its value was simply enormous. If it had the Nine Solar Holy Water instead, not to mention Yan Chenyu who had a Divine Body which possessed the Nine Yin Meridians, even an ordinary man would become a genius, and his cultivation would soar as well.
“Older brother Guo, I’ll probably go to Inferno h.e.l.l in a few days. You’ll have to help me take good care of Little Yu and Brother Yan.
After saving Yan Chenyu, Jiang Chen’s next goal was to enter Inferno h.e.l.l and find the Earthly Demon Beast. Han Yan was his first brother after reincarnating, as well as his only brother; so he had to save him no matter what.
“Brother, do you really want to enter Inferno h.e.l.l?”
When mentioning Inferno h.e.l.l, Guo Shan couldn’t help but furrow his brows. That place was an extremely dangerous place, it was best not to go there.
“I have a great interest in this Inferno h.e.l.l. It also happens to be that I need to go there in order to save Brother Yan as well. Since Guan Yiyun was brave enough to enter, there is nothing that I, Jiang Chen need to be afraid of.”
Jiang Chen said with a serious expression. He loved adventures and challenges, it gave him some meaning to life. Besides, by cultivating the Dragon Transformation skill, he would need to go through a certain amount of challenges before yielding any progress. The Dragon Transformation skill only got harder and harder to cultivate the more you broke through. Therefore, Jiang Chen would take this opportunity to enter Inferno h.e.l.l.
“Big Yellow, the trip to Inferno h.e.l.l is extremely dangerous; you can choose not to follow me, I won’t force you.”
Jiang Chen looked at Big Yellow as he spoke.
“d.a.m.n it, how could you leave me behind when going to such a dangerous place? Let me tell you this buddy, there is no way you can ditch me and go off by yourself! Daddy is going to this Inferno h.e.l.l with you no matter what!”
Big Yellow raised his prideful head and spoke with an arrogant tone.
Jiang Chen burst out into laughter, and he felt somewhat touched in his heart. Although his and Big Yellow’s relations.h.i.+p had started after an intense fight, after spending so much time together and having gone through so many events, they had built a deep relations.h.i.+p. No matter what Jiang Chen was going to do, no matter how dangerous it seemed, Big Yellow always willingly followed him. From killing Lord Blood Moon to Firethorn Savage, Big Yellow had always been a great help.
Besides, when this dog followed him, the help he provided was enormous.
After settling his matters with Yan Chenyu, Jiang Chen could finally have a peace of mind; he felt relaxed at last. The same night, outside of Guo Shan’s herb plantation, Jiang Chen, Guo Shan and Big Yellow sat around a stone table, drinking together. And of course, they were drinking the best wine that Guo Shan had brewed.
Suddenly, a figured descended from the skies above and appeared next to the table. The man didn’t show any formality, he just sat down and grabbed the wine pot, then he drained it with one gulp.
“Sect Chief, this is so rude of you, you didn’t even ask me for permission; that wine was mine.”
Guo Shan mockingly said. The man who suddenly arrived was the Black Sect’s Sect Chief, Daoist Black.
“What? Daddy only drank a mouthful of your wine, how could you be so stingy?”
It was rare for Daoist Black to be so gracious.
“I’m sure Sect Chief is here for a reason.”
Jiang Chen said as he cupped his fist towards Daoist Black.
“Indeed, I’m here to inform you about something, it will give you a sense of crisis.”
Daoist Black said as he looked at Jiang Chen.
“Sense of crisis? I suppose it is related to Nanbei Chao?”
Jiang Chen was a brilliant man, something that could attract Daoist Black’s attention and was related to Jiang Chen, it must be something related to Nanbei Chao.
“That’s right. I just got some news saying Nanbei Chao has broken through to the Divine Core realm. This isn’t what’s special, the important part is that he has been chosen by the Martial Palace, and is now a disciple of the Martial Palace.”
When mentioning the Martial Palace, Daoist Black couldn’t help but express a slight hint of respect on his face.
“What? Nanbei Chao was chosen by the Martial Palace?!”
Guo Shan exclaimed as if he had just heard something really shocking.
With a puzzled expression, Jiang Chen asked, “Martial Palace, what’s that?”
“Jiang Chen, it looks like you don’t have much knowledge about the distribution of powers in the Eastern Continent. Do you know anything about the Martial Saint Dynasty?”
Daoist Black asked.
Jiang Chen shook his head. He had never heard about the Martial Saint Dynasty before. Since he ventured from Red City, through Origin Mountain, and into the Qi Province, he hadn’t made any other stops. There were a total of 28 provinces in the Eastern Continent, and there were many powerful sects and clans with complicated relations.h.i.+ps. He was not familiar with any of them at all.
“Younger brother, the Martial Saint Dynasty is the giant of the Eastern Continent. You could say that they’re the power who rules the entire Eastern Continent. The Martial Palace was established by the Martial Saint Dynasty, and its purpose is to cultivate all geniuses amongst every single province in the Eastern Continent.
Guo Shan explained.
“I see. With Nanbei Chao’s talent and potential, it’s only natural for him to be chosen by the Martial Palace. Oh right, since this Martial Saint Dynasty rules the entire Eastern Continent, I suppose the Qi Province is ruled by it as well… But why has n.o.body mentioned it before?”
Jiang Chen asked.
“It’s a shame, actually. The Qi Province is one of the weakest provinces in the Eastern Continent, and the Martial Saint Dynasty has never taken us seriously. In fact, none of the big sects in the Qi Province are even qualified to be ruled by the Martial Saint Dynasty. There are quite a few geniuses from the four big sects, and all of them broke through to the Divine Core realm before they became 30 years old and became core disciples, but none of them ever attracted the Martial Saint Dynasty’s attention. Therefore, they could only journey into more powerful provinces to train themselves further. It’s the first time in history that the Martial Saint Dynasty came to the Qi Province to invite Nanbei Chao to become their disciple; this really proves how incredible Nanbei Chao’s potential is. Right now, Nanbei Chao has broken through to the Divine Core realm, and the pressure on you has become larger.”
Daoist Black said with a worried tone. Nanbei Chao was the first man from the Qi Province to become a disciple of the Martial Saint Dynasty. His existence was not only a threat to Jiang Chen, he also posed a threat to all the other 3 big sects in the Qi Province. It would just take him a few years before the current situation in the Qi Province changed completely.
