Chapter 423: Helping You Heal
The Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill was actually not a poisonous item. It only contained an extremely cold Yin energy that was very oppressive. If a person with lacking a cultivation base swallowed it, it could cause the person’s meridians to break, crippling one’s cultivation base.
Seeing Yi Yun hold the Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill, the mouths of the Thousand Hand Granny and Shentu Nantian twitched. However, they did not believe that Yi Yun would be able to identify the pill. This was because this pill was extremely valuable. It was a secret concoction made by the Shentu family clan. A junior like Yi Yun would never have come into contact with it.
Yi Yun played with the pill. Just holding it made Yi Yun feel the cold biting into his body.
Yi Yun could still clearly remember the feeling of the frost Qi entering his bone marrow from two months ago.
Back then, when the frost Qi rushed into Yi Yun’s dantian, and all of his blood vessels, it had made him feel an extreme cold that came from deep within his soul. Following that, even the pure Yang Yuan Qi that Yi Yun cultivated was rapidly eroded by the frost Qi.
As a result, his face had turned pale and his body trembled. Icicles then formed on his eyebrows and hair. Following that, even his black hair had turned white.
Yi Yun’s back faced Shentu Nantian as he held the pill in between his index finger and thumb. In front of the dungeon’s candle light, he could see through the crystal clear pill. The flickering candle light looked unreal and beautiful through it.
Yi Yun squinted his eyes. This pill was the one that Shentu Nantian had fed him, leading him to feel endless pain, nearly pushing him to the brink of his death.
Yi Yun spent quite a long period of time admiring this pill.
Behind Yi Yun, the Thousand Hand Granny and Shentu Nantian looked each other in the eye. None of them knew what Yi Yun was doing.
“This kid, why is he so interested in the Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill? He cannot be…” Shentu Nantian was feeling alarmed. To have such a dangerous pill fall into this kid’s hands, and having his life completely in the grasp of another person did not feel good when he was completely unable to put up any resistance.
“Impossible! This little bastard is not from some famous family, that can be seen at a glance. He must be some bumpkin that Su Jie found in some remote region. With his experience, how can he recognize the Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill? He may even think that it is some treasure.”
The Thousand Hand Granny dismissed Yi Yun’s origins. In the Tian Yuan world, those from big family clans tended to have a form of superiority complex. The big family clans had such immense amounts of heritage that it made it hard to comprehend. So how could a warrior from humble origins compare to them?
Hence, the Thousand Hand Granny completely despised Yi Yun. In her eyes, Yi Yun was just a small, ant-like figure. She was just feeling extremely pissed that she was now in his hands.
As Yi Yun admired the Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill, he suddenly opened his mouth, “I cannot find any news of the Great Empress mystic realm in neither of your interspatial rings.”
Upon hearing this, Shentu Nantian sneered. He was thinking, was that not obvious!?
Of course, he would never say those words out aloud. This was definitely not a good time to agitate Yi Yun.
“It seems the both of you have no intentions of revealing information of the Great Empress mystic realm?” Yi Yun also said.
Another obvious pile of bullsh*t!
Shentu Nantian knew that the Great Empress mystic realm was the only trump card keeping him alive. He definitely would not reveal it. For this Yun kid to say something so idiotic, he must have intelligence problems.
As Shentu Nantian was having these malicious thoughts, Yi Yun suddenly turned around as he gave Shentu Nantian and the Thousand Hand Granny a playful look.
Shentu Nantian’s heart sank. He did not know what the meaning of Yi Yun’s gaze was. At that moment, the Thousand Hand Granny’s face was sullen as she said with her husky voice, “Junior, return the Eternal Frost Sword to Tian’er and the Frost Soul Chill Silkworm Pill to me. These two items should not be defiled by you. If you do not, then when my Shentu family clan comes to negotiate, it will not be something let off that simply!”
The Eternal Frost Sword was Shentu Nantian’s companion sword, which was also the azure sword Yi Yun had kept. It was the most valuable thing Shentu Nantian had.
It would be very normal if the Shentu family clan wanted back the sword when the Shentu family clan began negotiations.
As for the Frost Soul Chill Silkworm Pill?
Yi Yun hesitated for a bit. He was holding a Frost Soul Chill Silkworm Pill?
Seeing the Thousand Hand Granny’s muddy eyes looking at the Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill in his hand, Yi Yun suddenly understood the intentions of the old hag.
“You say I am holding a Frost Soul Chill Silkworm Pill?”
Yi Yun seemed slightly stunned as he looked at the pill in his hand.
“What do you think?” The Thousand Hand Granny smiled disdainfully. “What a bumpkin, not from a good family. So what if you have some talent? You can’t even identify precious items! You can’t even identify the Frost Soul Chill Silkworm Pill!”
The Thousand Hand Granny mocked Yi Yun with a queer voice.
The Frost Soul Chill Silkworm Pill she mentioned was much more famous. Besides, in the Thousand Hand Granny’s interspatial ring, there was a jade scroll that introduced the Frost Soul Chill Silkworm Pill.
This Frost Soul Chill Silkworm Pill looked extremely similar to the Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill. Even an experienced alchemist would not be able to distinguish between the two at a glance.
However, the effects of the two pills were extremely different.
The Frost Soul Chill Silkworm Pill was an extremely good medicine. Ignoring the difficulty at refining it, just the ingredients needed to refine it were just slightly inferior to the materials needed to make the Great Empress relic.
“The Frost Soul Chill Silkworm Pill is not something a person with your cultivation level can use. You are a Desolate Heaven Master apprentice, whose combat power is not even worth a glance. That pill you have is useless. Return it to me, or in the negotiation in a few days time we would definitely talk about this. Your Lin family will definitely be put in a negative position. You still want to stay in the Lin family. Do you think Matriarch Lin will condone of you messing around!?”
The Thousand Hand Granny’s words were extremely reasonable, so much that they nearly made Yi Yun believe them.
Yi Yun shook his head gently.
Frost Soul Chill Silkworm Pill? Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill?
If it were juniors with limited insight, they would not have been able to distinguish between the two extremely similar pills. However, Yi Yun had personally eaten the Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill before. That pain due to the biting cold that reached the bone was how he remembered this pill.
So how could he misidentify the Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill?
“You are saying this is the Frost Soul Chill Silkworm Pill?”
Yi Yun smiled. The Frost Soul Chill Silkworm Pill was a treasured medicine. The Thousand Hand Granny’s act was purposely done to make him misidentify it!
Seeing Yi Yun’s cold mask and teasing tone, the Thousand Hand Granny’s heart skipped a beat.
Could this kid know something?
She wanted to let Yi Yun think that he was holding on to the Frost Soul Chill Silkworm Pill. If Yi Yun carried on rummaging through her interspatial ring, he would see the jade scroll introducing the Frost Soul Chill Silkworm Pill, which was almost identical to the Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill.
As such, Yi Yun would then definitely believe in her words.
And in the jade scroll, it had introduced how juniors with weaker cultivation levels could use the Frost Soul Chill Silkworm Pill. One could drink the soup made from melting the Frost Soul Chill Silkworm Pill with water.
Once a Frost Soul Chill Silkworm Pill was made into a soup, its medicinal properties would slowly disperse, then, even a junior at the Yuan Foundation realm would be able to intake it.
The Thousand Hand Granny believed that with Yi Yun’s greedy character, the more she pretended the preciousness of the pill, the more she said that the Shentu family clan would pursue the matter of the pill, the more he would not hand the pill back.
He would deceive the Lin family and secretly take the pill and intake it after smelting it with water.
In that case, he would be swallowing a Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill!
Finally, when the frost Qi entered his body, his meridians would be damaged, crippling his cultivation.
This result was what the Thousand Hand Granny was dreaming to see.
“Impossible, with his knowledge, it is impossible for him to distinguish the difference between the Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill and the Frost Soul Chill Silkworm Pill.”
As the Thousand Hand Granny was thinking, Yi Yun began speaking slowly, “I see, the Frost Soul Chill Silkworm Pill! I definitely would not dare to take such a precious pill! If I were to take it, then the Shentu family clan would definitely insist on this point during the negotiations. Then, I will not be able to withhold my face and this would affect the smooth negotiations. If I cannot obtain any news of the Great Empress mystic realm, then I would have sinned greatly.”
Yi Yun’s willingness to admit his mistake shocked the Thousand Hand Granny and Shentu Nantian.
The Thousand Hand Granny was afraid of Yi Yun’s suspicions, so she had acted out in that way. She never expected it to be counterproductive. This kid was too flippant in his attitude. How could he change his attitude that easily?
Shentu Nantian and the Thousand Hand Granny quickly tried to think of something in the hopes of luring Yi Yun into swallowing the Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill, without making him suspicious.
However, at that moment, Yi Yun had already walked before Shentu Nantian and smiled, “Actually, both of your wounds are indeed quite terrible. You are both guests of the Lin family, yet you are so badly injured. I feel sorry about it. Since this Frost Soul Chill Silkworm Pill is so precious, then I will feed it to you. This way, you can nurse your wounds, lest the Lin family gets criticized for its poor hospitality.”
As Yi Yun said this, he pinched open Shentu Nantian’s mouth.
Shentu Nantian’s expression immediately changed!
“What… are you doing!?”
Shentu Nantian was inexplicably horrified, but Yi Yun pretended to look puzzled, “Helping you heal!”
As Yi Yun said this, he placed the Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill into Shentu Nantian’s mouth. The moment the pill touched Shentu Nantian’s tongue, the biting cold entered his body, scaring Shentu Nantian silly.
His lips turned pale, his expression ashened. He was nearly scared out of his wits!
For a person like Shentu Nantian, death was not as terrifying as the damaging of all his meridians and losing his cultivation. That was 10,000 times more terrifying than death!
Shentu Nantian’s eyes turned bloodshot as he struggled with his life. However, how could he resist Yi Yun when his cultivation level was completely suppressed? The Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill began to melt in his mouth. Traces of the medicinal essence began to enter Shentu Nantian’s meridians and blood vessels!
The Thousand Hand Granny was also terrified as she shouted loudly. However, Yi Yun simply turned a deaf ear.
“Little bastard, I will kill you!”
The Thousand Hand Granny charged forward, but Yi Yun gave a side kick, sending her flying backward!
The Thousand Hand Granny slammed into the wall in a pathetic manner. Seeing her beloved grandchild about to lose his cultivation, her face turned ashen.
“You… You know what pill this is?”
The Thousand Hand Granny said with a trembling voice. At that moment, she finally realized this possibility.
“I can recognize the Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill even if it turned into water!”
Yi Yun said nonchalantly as the Thousand Hand Granny turned dumbfounded. How did he recognize it? He had even accurately called out the name of the pill!
And at that moment, the Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill was still in Shentu Nantian’s mouth. He was struggling not to swallow it as he felt full of despair!
