Chapter 1145: Heaven Bestowing Medicinal Clinic
In the central region of Myriad City, there were more than ten massive stores. They sold pills, enchanted artifacts, disk arrays, cultivation manuals, etc. Each store earned an unimaginable amount of profit every year. They were securely in the hands of the top ten factions and were never rented out, much less sold.
“This is the Heaven Bestowing Medicinal Clinic!”
Yi Yun saw a building in the shape of a cauldron. On it hung a plaque that read “Heaven Bestowing Medicinal Clinic.”
The Heaven Bestowing Medicinal Clinic was located in the central region of Myriad City. The massive cauldron was decorated with countless precious stones that shimmered with a dazzling luster. The scent of rich herbal aroma could be detected from afar. Warriors weaved in and out of it, making it a much busier than the Heavenly Treasures Arch.
To warriors, pills and relics were essential for the cultivation process. Pleasure was only for providing physical and mental relaxation. Hence, it was quite normal for the Heaven Bestowing Medicinal Clinic to be a lot livelier.
Yi Yun took a deep breath and calmed his mind before entering Heaven Bestowing Medicinal Clinic.
Upon entering, he saw countless pill bottles lining rows and rows of jade shelves. Many of these pill bottles cost a staggering amount.
The Heaven Bestowing Medicinal Clinic had several floors. Most warriors would conduct their business on the first floor, while only truly honored guests could go to the second floor and above.
Yi Yun did not waste any time as he quickly scanned the insides of the store. He immediately saw a middle-aged man sitting behind a counter. He was holding an abacus in hand and was dressed like the god of wealth.
“I’m here to buy medicine.” Yi Yun walked over and said.
The middle-aged man looked up and glanced at Yi Yun. He said slowly, “Everyone is here to buy medicine. Wait a while and someone will tend to you.”
The middle-aged man’s attitude was aloof. As a manager, he only entertained honored customers. The regular customers would be left to browse first before available attendants would tend to them.
In essence, the store did not fear the consequences of bad business practices. They did not need to implore customers to buy their items. Instead, people lined up to buy their goods.
Yi Yun frowned. He did not have the time to listen to the nonsense of someone putting on airs.
“I want a Soul Restoring Relic.” Yi Yun immediately took out the dark red jade slip and patted it on the counter while staring intently at the middle-aged man.
Yi Yun’s soul was extremely powerful. The middle-aged man’s cultivation level was also very high, but it only reached that height through the use of pills. His nomological insights were much weaker, so he immediately shuddered when he was glared at by Yi Yun.
Furthermore, he was shocked by Yi Yun’s words.
Soul Restoring Relic? That was an extremely expensive, supreme-grade pill. This punk actually wanted to buy a Soul Restoring Relic?
The middle-aged man sized up Yi Yun and said, “A Soul Restoring Relic goes for a high price. If you really want to buy it, I’ll call Alchemist Huyan. The store happens to have one Soul Restoring Relic for sale. And the person who refined the relic is Alchemist Huyan.”
“The alchemist needs to be called?” Yi Yun did not wish to delay things any further.
“You must not know. The medicine of the Heaven Bestowing Medicinal Clinic is never not in demand. Even supreme-grade medicine like the Soul Restoring Relic is in high demand by many honored customers. Furthermore, we sell supreme-grade medicine on behalf of the alchemists. Any sales, therefore, have to be agreed upon by them.” The middle-aged manager said proudly. His words also carried the implication that Yi Yun should not think so highly of himself just because he was buying pills that were worth hundreds of thousands of runes. Heaven Bestowing Medicinal Clinic had no lack of honored customers.
Yi Yun knew that the man was not bluffing. Many of the pills were priceless. Over time, these managers and attendants turned arrogant.
“Then, please call the alchemist.” Yi Yun said.
“Follow me.” The middle-aged man led Yi Yun to the second floor. It was fashioned into an exquisite guest hall. It had an elegant decor, and a pleasant smell wafted from a cauldron of aromatic incense burning to the side.
Yi Yun sat in a chair, feeling extremely anxious while he waited. Time passed, yet he did not see Alchemist Huyan appear.
“Why isn’t the alchemist here yet? It’s urgent. I’m buying the medicine to save someone.” Yi Yun looked at the manager and said.
The middle-aged manager went to take a look before returning to say, “Alchemist Huyan is having a chat with a friend. I have informed him. He asks you to wait a moment.”
Yi Yun was immediately infuriated. Here he was waiting anxiously to save a life while Alchemist Huyan was completely unfazed, chatting leisurely with a friend.
If this wasn’t Heaven Bestowing Medicinal Clinic, property of one of the top ten factions of Myriad City, Yi Yun might have lost patience and taken action to snatch the medicine.
Finally, a languid-looking man in gorgeous silk robes walked down from a higher floor. “Are you the person who is buying the medicine?”
From the looks of it, the person was none other than Alchemist Huyan. He had an arrogant and aloof expression. He was clearly not very amiable.
Yi Yun stood up. Alchemist Huyan appeared to be in his twenties. Yi Yun guessed that he, as an alchemist, must have taken medicine to give himself a youthful appearance. In other words, he was only young in looks.
“Alchemist Huyan, I’m in urgent need of a Soul Restoring Relic. I heard that you have refined this very pill. Would you sell it to me?”
“Soul Restoring Relic? That’s right. It was refined by me. Only a few alchemists in Myriad City are capable of refining Soul Restoring Relics. And I happened to finish refining a cauldron of Soul Restoring Relics a few days ago. Only two of them were completed successfully.”
Alchemist Huyan said proudly. Typically, a cauldron of pills numbered twelve or above. Alchemist Huyan had only succeeded in producing two from a cauldron. That would be considered extremely terrible, but his tone carried no shame. Instead, he was proud. Clearly, due to the difficulty of refining it, being able to successfully produce two was something worth commending him for.
“One of them I want to keep for myself, so I’ll only sell one for 550,000 runes,” said Alchemist Huyan.
550,000? This was 50,000 runes more than the price Princess White Fox had seen. However, Yi Yun did not have the time to haggle.
Just as he was about to agree to it, he heard a calm voice coming from above.
“I was wondering who wanted to buy a Soul Restoring Relic. So it’s you.”
The voice sounded a little familiar.
Yi Yun’s eyebrows pricked up. Zuoqiu Haoyu!
Upon seeing Yi Yun, Zuoqiu Haoyu let a faint smile hang on his face.
“Why? Do you know each other?” Alchemist Huyan languidly scanned the both of them.
Zuoqiu Haoyu said with a smile, “We had the chance of meeting once.”
With that said, Zuoqiu Haoyu looked at Yi Yun again and said, “I never expected you to be this rich. You are even buying a Soul Restoring Relic. Why? Is your soul damaged?”
Zuoqiu Haoyu asked with interest. It was not easy to treat soul damage, for it was a serious injury. If Yi Yun’s soul was damaged, then this would be fun.
Yi Yun’s expression sank. He never expected that the friend that Alchemist Huyan was chatting with was Zuoqiu Haoyu.
Zuoqiu Haoyu had not left a good impression on Yi Yun. He did not wish to speak to this person any further.
“Alchemist Huyan, let’s please do the sale immediately. I accept your price…” Yi Yun said.
Before Alchemist Huyan spoke, Yi Yun saw him exchange looks with Zuoqiu Haoyu. Immediately, he had an ominous foreboding…
