Chapter 160 — Refining Pills
The taotie ghost rolled his eyes and asked, “Ye Fan, where are you planning to go to refine pills?”
Ye Fan shook his head and said, “I don’t know yet, let’s go wherever we can.”
Bai Yunxi flipped out a map, there were many people staring at them now, at a time like this, they themselves didn’t know where their destination was, others would naturally know even less.
The taotie ghost looked at the map and said gloatingly: “Aiyaa, where to go? Everywhere you go seems to be a dead end!”
Ye Fan said displeased: “If you open your crow’s mouth again, I will throw you out.”
The taotie ghost said with disdain: “You’d better drive well, don’t cause traffic accidents and be invited to tea by the traffic police. I heard that you are a serial offender and often invited to drink tea!”
Ye Fan: “Nonsense, I am a good citizen…”
Bai Yunxi looked at the taotie ghost, and asked with great interest, “Does Lord Taotie have any good suggestions?”
Ye Fan glanced at Bai Yunxi and said, “Yunxi, you call him lord, he has starved himself to death, what kind of lord is he!”
“Lord Taotie has the blood of a real dragon on his body, so it’s not too much to call him lord,” Bai Yunxi said.
The taotie ghost said excitedly: “Yes, that’s right. Ye Fan, your partner has more eyesight than you. Yunxi, you are such a bright person, why did you find such a fool as Ye Fan? I feel so wronged for you.”
Bai Yunxi smiled and said, “How come?”
“Aiya, when there are no tigers in the mountains, monkeys dominate. If not because all the ancient cultivators have left, you who have the body of heavenly yin, where will it be this stupid boy Ye Fan’s turn to get you?” Taotie Ghost said sourly.
“Ye Fan, he’s pretty good too.”
“Where is he good? There are many ancient cultivators who are taller than him, more handsome than him, have more appetite than him, smell better than him, and taste more delicious than him…”
Bai Yunxi: “…”
“Hungry ghost, if you talk nonsense again, I will strangle you to death.”
The taotie ghost pouted and said, “Stupid.” He was already dead.
Bai Yunxi: “Lord Taotie, do you have any good places to recommend?”
“Yunxi, you’re also lifting him up too much. What good place can he know? He’s been suppressed under the Huai Village for thousands of years. He’s now a hillbilly Taotie, outdated la…” Ye Fan said disdainfully.
The taotie ghost grimaced and said, “You shouldn’t look down on people too much.”
Ye Fan snorted and said, “I’m not underestimating people, I’m just talking about facts! Could it be that you know of a good place?”
“I do know a good place,” Taotie Ghost said.
Ye Fan asked curiously, “Oh, where is it?”
“Near Huai Village,” Taotie Ghost said.
“Che, that ghost place! It’s so filthy,” Ye Fan said disdainfully.
Bai Yunxi thought for a while and said, “Anyway, we don’t have a place to go, we can go and have a look.”
The taotie ghost gave a light hum and said unhappily, “This great lord is kind and has shown you a clear path, it’s up to you whether you listen or not.”
Ye Fan drove the car to the place where the taotie ghost said.
“You were talking about this place?” Ye Fan asked in confusion.
The taotie ghost said with some confusion: “It shouldn’t be! There should be a small secret realm in this place.”
Bai Yunxi looked at the taotie ghost helplessly, and said, “Lord Taotie, you forgot, it’s been thousands of years.”
The taotie ghost said with melancholy: “Yeah! Thousands of years have passed, and all that should be gone are gone. You two-legged sheep, if you see anything good, you always take it for yourself. This continent is swept up like a plough once every year. If there is something good, it will be almost divided up long ago.”
The taotie ghost looked at Ye Fan, depressed.
Ye Fan frowned in displeasure, and said, “Why are you looking at me like that? It’s not like I destroyed the secret realm here.”
The taotie ghost was lying on the ground a little depressed and said: “Why don’t you take me away, I heard that there are many delicious foods in the cultivation world. I may be able to eat enough when I get there.”
Ye Fan looked at the desolate appearance of the taotie ghost, and did not continue to fall into the trap, just shook his head and said: “Don’t think too much, there is nothing delicious in the world of self-cultivation, everyone eats bigu pills, which tastes terrible.”
Taotie Ghost: “…”
“Just choose here,” Bai Yunxi said.
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Okay, this place is not bad, it’s inaccessible.”
Ye Fan quickly smashed the formation flag into the ground, and a layer of formation barrier quickly rose.
Ye Fan laid out three protective formations in succession, completely blocking off the place of alchemy.
The taotie ghost looked at Ye Fan, sneered, and said: “You guy, you are really afraid of death, you have arranged so many layers of tortoise shells, you are really more retracted than the shrewd turtle of the black tortoise clan!” The loneliness of the taotie ghost was only hot for three minutes, and soon Lord Taotie regained his vitality!
Ye Fan glanced at the taotie ghost, and said disdainfully: “What do you know? This is called sailing carefully for ten thousand years. You know why you starved to death? Isn’t it because you did not ask your father for two big bags of bigu pills when you were sealed?”
Taotie Ghost: “…”
Ye Fan unloaded the pill furnace from the truck and put it on the ground.
Bai Yunxi looked at Ye Fan and asked, “Are you going to start alchemy?”
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Yes.”
Ye Fan lit the fire and threw the mysterious bird egg into the pill furnace.
Bai Yunxi looked at the whole mysterious bird egg and said inexplicably, “Don’t you need to knock it open?”
Ye Fan shook his head and said, “No, I can’t open it, I can only boil it slowly.”
Ye Fan poured the pre-configured medicinal liquid into the pill furnace and added the fire.
Ye Fan’s fire lasted for two days and two nights.
“Young Master Bai, Young Master Ye has been burning this furnace for a long time, it won’t be burned dry, right?” Mu Lianping said worriedly.
Bai Yunxi frowned and said, “Probably not, I think he has been adding water.”
Mu Lianping nodded, “Oh”.
“The fragrance is getting stronger and stronger,” Bai Yunxi said.
Mu Lianping nodded and said, “Yes!”
Ye Fan burned the fire for two days and two nights, adding a lot of medicinal liquid, and finally, the egg was cooked and cracked, and the egg and the medicinal liquid were integrated into one.
Ye Fan took out the eggshell, and put the blood dragon ginseng and other spiritual herbs that had been prepared earlier into the pill furnace one by one.
As soon as a few herbs were thrown in, Bai Yunxi felt a surge of spiritual energy that was about to overflow.
Ye Fan once again increased the flame, and the medicinal liquid in the furnace gurgled and bubbled.
The taotie ghost looked at the medicinal liquid in Ye Fan’s pill furnace and blinked, and said, “It looks so delicious!”
“It’s not ready to eat yet,” Bai Yunxi frowned and said.
“Does Lord Taotie know when Ye Fan will finish refining pills?”
The taotie ghost frowned and said, “This ah! Maybe he will be able to finish refining pills soon. Alchemy is not that easy. If he blows up the furnace, won’t it be over? Haha…”
Bai Yunxi: “…” Maybe Ye Fan is right, he shouldn’t praise this taotie ghost too much.
A burst of “bang bang” gunshots came over, and Bai Yunxi couldn’t help frowning.
The taotie ghost blinked and said, “Someone still followed us!”
Bai Yunxi frowned and said secretly: There are many detection techniques now. Ye Fan’s concealment technique is just a trick, and most likely can’t fool the experts.
“I’m going to see who is attacking the formation,” Bai Yunxi said.
Mu Lianping hurriedly said, “Young Master Bai, I’ll go too.”
Bai Yunxi went out and saw a foreign man.
“Young Master Bai, there’s something wrong with this guy, he’s not like an ordinary person,” Mu Lianping said.
“The blood aura is very heavy on him, like a vampire,” Bai Yunxi said.
Mu Lianping frowned, there are many ancient tombs in this area, and it also attracts many foreigners who come to travel, but it is hard to say whether they really come to travel.
The man looked at Bai Yunxi and said intoxicatedly, “How come the blood on your body is so fragrant?”
Bai Yunxi frowned. He has been cultivating for a while, and was fed with a lot of spiritual medicines. The blood on his body has been transformed into spiritual blood, so it is no wonder that this person can feel it.
“If you don’t want to die, just leave,” Bai Yunxi said indifferently.
Cullo smiled smugly and said, “Die? Can you kill me?”
Bai Yunxi threw out a talisman and said, “Freeze.”
As soon as Bai Yunxi made his move, the temperature around him suddenly dropped sharply for a few minutes. Cullo was hit by the Freeze Talisman, and his body suddenly became stiff.
“What did you… do?”
“Explode.” Bai Yunxi hummed softly, and a big hole exploded in Cullo’s heart.
Seeing this scene, Mu Lianping couldn’t help but be amazed, “Young Master Bai, you are amazing.” He was worried about how to protect Bai Yunxi once someone outside attacked. Now it seems that Bai Yunxi doesn’t need him to worry about his safety at all. His strength is probably still higher than him.
Bai Yunxi looked around, and faintly said: “Let’s enter the formation.”
Bai Yunxi sensed several human breaths lurking around the formation, with his ability to deal with it, it would be a struggle. Bai Yunxi hesitated and decided to avoid it, he had just killed one, it should more or less act as a deterrent.
Bai Yunxi secretly guessed that this foreign fool had been lured here in order to let him test something.
The formation flag in Bai Yunxi’s hand waved, and a crack appeared in the big formation. Bai Yunxi and Mu Lianping quickly escaped into the formation.
Yang Lengxue frowned and said, “When did Bai Yunxi’s strength become so high?”
“Who let him find Ye Fan?” Ye Fan likes Bai Yunxi the most. In order to marry Bai Yunxi, Ye Fan did a lot of stupid things. “How long has Mu Lianping been with Ye Fan? In my opinion, he has already become a fifth level of ancient martial arts master. Ye Fan is like this to Mu Lianping so how can he treat Bai Yunxi poorly? I didn’t expect this guy, Mu Lianping, to still have a chance for a salted fish to turn around,” Yang Hong said coldly.
Hearing Yang Hong mention Mu Lianping, Yang Lengxue couldn’t help but feel a little strange.
Before, Yang Lengxue had gloated over the misfortune when she heard that Mu Lianping took the spirit flame fruit and went crazy. But now, Mu Lianping’s cultivation has improved by leaps and bounds. If this continues, she will soon be completely left behind.
“What a strong fragrance! What exactly is Ye Fan refining?” Yang Lengxue muttered.
Yang Hong squinted his eyes and said, “It’s definitely a good thing. If it wasn’t something good, Ye Fan wouldn’t have gone to such great lengths.”
In order to find the secondary medicinal herbs, Xu Yuanqing also made a special trip to find the descendants of Shennong. Xu Yuanqing is so concerned, mostly for Mu Lianping. If Ye Fan really comes up with something good, maybe he will give Mu Lianping a share. In this way, Mu Lianping’s future… can be said to be boundless.
A burst of phoenix roars came out from the pill furnace, and a phantom of a flaming bird looked at Ye Fan angrily.
“Go back,” Ye Fan took the phantom of the flaming bird back into the pill furnace with one palm.
“Is that a phoenix phantom just now? So that stone is really a mysterious bird’s egg?” Mu Lianping asked in surprise.
The taotie ghost looked at Mu Lianping and said, “You idiot, did you just realize that it was a mysterious bird egg? How slow are you?”
Mu Lianping: “…” He has long known that it was a mysterious bird egg, but he has never truly believed that the mysterious bird egg really exists.
“Why did the phoenix phantom appear?” Mu Lianping asked in confusion.
The taotie ghost pouted and said, “A bird like the phoenix is very arrogant, and even a bird with the phoenix blood has its eyes turned to the sky and looks down on people. Such an arrogant bird will become a medicine pill, it will naturally toss, but it is just a dying struggle.”
Mu Lianping: “…”
“Is it almost finished?” Bai Yunxi said towards the taotie ghost.
The taotie ghost nodded and said: “Yes, yes, it is about to condense. Formations, talismans, and alchemy, this guy has researched everything! One trick, and you can eat all over the world. Cultivators usually only practice one subject, and even if they only practice one, they are still struggling. But this guy, Ye Fan, has mastered every skill well!”
Bai Yunxi frowned. Ye Fan always said that he was a genius. Sometimes, he found it funny when he heard it, however, in some aspects, Ye Fan was indeed an undeniable genius.
“Ye Fan, he is very smart!” Bai Yunxi said.
Mu Lianping’s face twisted, is Ye Fan smart? For some reason, Mu Lianping suddenly remembered the scene where his grandfather and himself went to see Ye Fan at Ye Fan’s villa for the first time. At that time, Ye Fan’s performance was really…not considered smart.
A heavenly thunder struck down, and in the middle of the pill furnace, blood-red pills were formed.
There were bursts of mist around. The mist seemed to have medicinal power, one breath would make one feel a hundred times more energetic.
Ye Fan moved towards the pill furnace and kept entering the pill condensing art, and more than 30 medicinal pills spun around in the pill furnace.
Bang! Bang! The gunshots rang out.
Bai Yunxi frowned and said displeased, “Here come the people who want to seize the opportunity.”
Bai Yunxi waved the formation flag, all the formations Ye Fan arranged in advance were activated, and the formation barrier rose.
Mu Lianping frowned and said, “These guys actually use guns.” The ancient martial arts practitioners used guns, which can be said to be an insult to the ancient martial arts.
Bai Yunxi frowned. Now that firearms are becoming more and more developed, low-level ancient martial artists will most likely capsize in the gutter against a firearm master. Firearms do not consume energy, so it is indeed a good choice for the first attack.
