All at once, Su Yu became the center of attention. He was at ease as he calmly faced the charging crowd.
“Humph!” Suddenly, a light croon exploded in everyone’s ears. It was loud and sounded like a bolt of thunder!
A man clad in a red robe strode out from guest room number one and moved to the side. He was now standing in front of guest room number two and staring coldly at the crowd.
Hearing his light croon made the blood boil inside most of the martial artists, and they instantly recoiled in shock. Only Fairy Ling and Hu Wangui remained relatively unphased, but they were still forced to stop in their tracks.
“Do any of you still have any respect left for us here at the Red Blood Palace Auction House?” Coldness filled the red-robed man’s eyes as he spoke. When he looked at the martial artists at the scene, they all felt as though they had been struck by lightning.
“Cabinet Master Xiaoyao!” one startled martial artist exclaimed, while the rest of them seemed to also be fearful. At this moment, all of these martial artists could not help but retreat.
Ferocity flickered in Hu Wangui’s eyes as he fixed his stare on the guest room behind him, his murderous intention as fierce as ever. Fairy Ling had a bright smile on her face, and as she spoke, it was clear that she had no intention of stepping back.
“I just want to take a look at the owner of the Heart Refining Mortal Dust Liquid and strike a deal with him. I’m not interested in taking his life!” she declared.
After all, the Heart Refining Mortal Dust Liquid did not mean much to her. All she really wanted was a living plant of the Heartbroken Zither Grass.
“Haha, Fairy Ling isn’t interested in anyone. What’s important is that this is the Red Blood Palace Auction House, and you don’t get to behave recklessly here!” Cabinet Master Xiaoyao replied sternly.
Fairy Ling glanced at guest room number two again, then headed back toward the stage with a tender smile.
“How about you? Are you giving me a reason to make you stay?” Xiaoyao’s cold glance swept over to Hu Wangui, a murderous look secretly whirling in them.
This person had almost destroyed the three largest industries of the Red Blood Palace, and now he had tried to murder Su Yu amid the commotion in order to destroy the source of the Heart Refining Mortal Dust Liquid. He was loathsome indeed!
Hu Wangui eyes flashed with a tinge of fear. He was familiar with Cabinet Master Xiaoyao’s strength, so he dared not act recklessly.
“You’re kidding! I was only excited to meet the expert who could refine the Heart Refining Mortal Dust Liquid.” Hu Wangui greeted him with cupped fists and retreated smilingly.
Cabinet Master Xiaoyao withdrew his cold look and stared at the crowd. The people who were agitated moments ago finally calmed down in the face of his intimidating presence.
Right at the moment, gentle laughter sounded from guest room number two. “Everyone… I’m the owner of the Heart Refining Mortal Dust Liquid, but I am not the one who refined it. I was only selling it on behalf of a senior.”
The crowd was stunned, as this was the first time that a voice had been heard coming from guest room number two. They looked over to the guest room unanimously, all of them eager to see the speaker in person.
“Senior, I’d like to know if there’s any of the Heart Refining Mortal Dust Liquid left,” a martial artist who had failed to land a bid on the product inquired expectantly.
Su Yu glanced at the crowd and was satisfied that the advertising effect of the Heart Refining Mortal Dust Liquid had reached the most satisfactory extent. He smiled and said, “There is!”
“Senior, please kindly grant us the elixir!” another martial artist said in agitation.
Still smiling, Su Yu said, “The senior assigned me to sell it. You can purchase it in three days.”
Three days from this moment would be the day that the new batch of the Heartbroken Zither Grass would fully ripen and be ready for sale. Upon hearing this, a noisy commotion broke out in the crowd!
“Where can we buy it?” a man in the crowd asked, and many of the other people’s hopes to break through the Almighty level was rekindled at this moment.
Su Yu smiled as he replied, “At the Tonglin Elixir Store, an elixir brand store that is within the Red Blood Palace’s industry umbrella. Please look up the address of the exact location on your own.”
“It really belongs to the Red Blood Palace?” an onlooker exclaimed, clearly shocked.
If that was true, the elixir industry of the Red Blood Palace had been redeemed! This meant that the Red Blood Palace could simply stand by, relying solely on this particular elixir and the profits that it made them. In fact, these profits were sure to even exceed those in the past!
For this reason, the efforts put in by the other elixir influences in the Central Prefecture to manufacture the Dragon Phoenix Spiritual Elixir had suffered a great blow. All of their work seemed to have been in vain!
Hu Wangui clenched both of his fists, while a cold light shone in the depths of his eyes. He couldn’t believe that their efforts had all been futile!
In stark contrast to their rage, the people from the Red Blood Palace were beaming with joy. Now, they could finally lay aside their worries!
This time, the Red Blood Palace had suffered a humiliation from the oppression by the influences of the Central Prefecture, but in the end, an unknown small elixir store had come up with a time-transcending ancient spiritual liquid like the Heart Refining Mortal Dust Liquid!
It was said that this spiritual liquid far surpassed even the modern soul-training methods! This gave the martial artists on the ninth-grade fairy level hope of breaking through to the Almighty level! Furthermore, not only did it save the Red Blood Palace’s reputation, but it actually elevated it.
Cabinet Master Xiaoyao secretly heaved a sigh of relief as he looked toward guest room number two. If it had not been for this timely rain, there would have been severe consequences.
At this time, the auction had ended, but the drama that had arisen from it had not. The recovery of the Heart Refining Mortal Dust Liquid had stirred the entire Jiuzhou Continent by altering the training methods of human martial artists.
The master who had conducted all of this in secret had left after his speech without telling anyone. So, when Cabinet Master Xiaoyao and the other martial artists wanted to see Su Yu in person, guest room number two had already been deserted. Nonetheless, his identity was quickly known by all of the people, as there was only one shopkeeper in Tonglin Elixir Store, and that was Su Yuxian!
Su Yu hurried back to Tonglin Elixir Store right after leaving. The two guards who were both Almighty Divine Masters followed him secretly, carefully protecting him.
Su Yu frowned. Now that the Heart Refining Mortal Dust Liquid had gained fame, the next challenge would be refining the elixir. But, he faced the predicament of wondering how he could travel to places with elixir fires to refine the elixirs while he was under surveillance?
If he failed to free himself, the Heartbroken Zither Grass would ripen in three days and the elixir could not be refined! He would never be able to explain such a thing to the next buyer of the elixir! Upon returning to the house, Su Yu racked his brains to figure out some solution.
“Master! Craft equipment…” A babyish voice echoed in his mind. It was childish, but clear.
Small kylin? Su Yu wondered as his soul moved and entered the Nine Jade Spiritual Pearl. Immediately, a pink shadow jumped into his arms.
“What? Can you start crafting equipment?” Su Yu asked.
He was delighted. If that was the case, he could begin crafting the Heavenly Orchid Silver Sword!
If he could successfully craft three of the swords, then the Nine Suns Sword Formation could start to be devised. Su Yu got chills as he anticipated how immense its power would be!
The small kylin rubbed against Su Yu’s neck, blinking its watery eyes. It then returned the Mysterious Heavenly Crafting Secret Technique book that it had clutched within its tiny hooves to Su Yu, while indicating that it had thoroughly read and comprehended it.
“Let me see if you can meet my standards.” As an idea occurred to him, Su Yu brought the small kylin to the nursery.
While he stood gazing at the long silver white bamboo, Su Yu had an expectant look in his eyes. With a motion of his heart, the nursery shifted intensely, causing the Heavenly Orchid Silver Bamboo to uproot from the soil and appear before Su Yu.
It did not seem like it was made of bamboo wood at first glance, but rather a kind of silver metal that was shimmering with silver light. This was the mature form of the Heavenly Orchid Silver Bamboo! It had been growing a thousand years based on the cultivation period in Su Yu’s nursery!
Su Yu dared not say anything to anyone regarding the fact that a Heavenly Orchid Silver Bamboo had been cultivated for as long as a thousand years, as such a thing was unprecedented! But the growth of a second one was nearly impossible!
Sticking out a finger, Su Yu tried to pluck a bamboo leaf from it, but it did not budge an inch. Delight flickered in Su Yu’s eyes as he marveled aloud, “The bamboo leaf can’t even be moved with the bodily energy of a seventh-grade fairy! It really is a special wood of the universe that deserves to be called the world’s number one godly bamboo!”
He was about to remove his hand from the leaf when a tinge of numbness shot through his palm. It felt as if he had just been bitten by a venomous snake, and Su Yu immediately recoiled his hand!
After recovering from his initial shock, Su Yu stared at the leaf in surprise. A vague thunder arc had appeared on the leaf’s surface!
“Thunder?” Su Yu wondered aloud.
He was utterly shocked. In his memory, the Heavenly Orchid Silver Bamboo was very hard and did indeed carry magical space powers, but he never would have expected that it could be carrying thunder!
