Chapter 1657: Jiang Yuchan Recovers
Meanwhile, in the Luo King Palace—
With Luo King’s standing, he naturally had no right to possess an array core in his palace. However, the Luo King had used large numbers of Chaos Crystals to construct a massive array in an underground chamber right in the middle of the Luo King Palace.
This array usually amassed Heaven Earth Yuan Qi. When it was used, the array would be triggered to burn fifty Chaos Crystals at a time, so as to release rich Heaven Earth Yuan Qi.
Although it was much weaker than the Heaven Fey City’s nine array cores in terms of Heaven Earth Yuan Qi quality, it was still a rare cultivation ground!
The activation price of fifty Chaos Crystals for such a large array was not cheap. Even Jiang Yuchan had little chance of using it.
But over the past few days, Jiang Yuchan had been receiving treatment in the core chamber.
He was also accompanied by the Luo King and the Heretic Hands Ghost Doctor!
Compared to a month ago, Jiang Yuchan’s condition was a lot better.
Jiang Yuchan had been suffering a tormenting pain every moment back then. With the Luo King and other mighty Fey being powerless, he was left in despair.
This changed when the Heretic Hands Ghost Doctor appeared.
Indeed, Heretic Hands lived up to his name. After a long period of treatment, he had slowly repressed the Dao injuries in Jiang Yuchan’s body.
Now, although Jiang Yuchan had yet to recover his strength, his body was no longer in pain. However, he still did not dare use his lifeblood powers.
Heretic Hands had implanted more than a hundred blood charms in his body. They restrained the powers of Lightning and Fire and, over time, the powers of Lightning and Fire would be devoured by the blood charms.
“Thank you, Daoist Heretic Hands.”
The Luo King placed great importance on his grandson. He was the most outstanding one among his grandchildren. Over these days, he had spent a considerable price treating Jiang Yuchan and had even accompanied him personally.
Thankfully, everything was going according to Heretic Hands’s plan. The Lightning and Fire powers inside Jiang Yuchan’s body were weakening and had been completely sealed.
“Luo King, it will take at most half a year before he makes a complete recovery,” Heretic Hands investigated Jiang Yuchan’s body and said hoarsely.
Upon hearing that, Jiang Yuchan felt like he had received life anew.
It was not easy!
After making a trip to the gates of hell, he cherished his life even more.
As for Yi Yun—the culprit who caused him to be in his present state—he vowed to rip him into pieces!
“Grandfather, I want revenge!”
“I know. Heaven Fey City will not interfere to seek revenge for you. But with the time that has passed, the poison which Daoist Heretic Hands left in the Flying Clouds Flowing Flower should be about to trigger.
At that moment, the Luo King was filled with confidence.
Even the stumbling block, the Blood King, that stood in the way of killing Yi Yun would be finished by him.
“Alright, I’ll maim him personally after he’s heavily injured!” A cold glint flashed in Jiang Yuchan’s eyes.
Luo King nodded. Yi Yun was fast becoming a mental demon for Jiang Yuchan. It was best if Jiang Yuchan resolved it with his own hands. It was definitely possible for Jiang Yuchan to deal with a poisoned Yi Yun.
And at that moment—
A blue light emitted from the array formation as it flashed in front of the Luo King.
It signified that someone outside was seeking an audience.
The Luo King frowned. The Heaven Earth Yuan Qi inside the chamber was highly compressed. Every communication with the outside world would lead to sizable losses. He did not wish to be disturbed.
With a thought, the array formation opened. The person who entered was none other than the Luo King’s confidant and Jiang Yuchan’s teacher—Jiang Yuebai!
“What’s the matter?”
Upon seeing Jiang Yuebai’s expression, the Luo King’s heart palpitated. Did something happen?
“Your Lordship, the Heaven Fey City has produced a phenomena caused by Heaven Earth Yuan Qi…”
“Oh?” The Luo King pricked up his brows. He naturally knew that a phenomena which was a result of Heaven Earth Yuan Qi in Heaven Fey City typically had to do with an array core.
“Which array core?”
“The Heaven Fey Relic Pagoda! Lin Yun’s alchemical ground!” Jiang Yuebai took a deep breath before saying.
The Luo King, Heretic Hands Ghost Doctor, and Jiang Yuchan felt that hearts skip a beat. What was the meaning of this?
“I just received news from the Heaven Fey Relic Pagoda. This phenomena is likely a result of Lin Yun’s success. And the grade of those pills…”
Jiang Yuebai did not finish his sentence. The three people present were all knowledgeable people. They knew very well what the statement meant.
When a pill was formed, it could cause phenomena, but that was more common in lowly worlds.
In lowly worlds, the Heavenly Dao laws were extremely low in grade. It was easy to cause nomological resonances.
But what sort of place was the Chaos Heavens?
In the known universe, the Chaos Heavens represented the supreme laws!
And the Heaven Fey City was one of the core regions of the Chaos Heavens!
Any pill that could cause phenomena in Heaven Fey City meant the stirring of the Heavenly Dao. It had never happened as far as the Luo King could remember.
No Alchemy Monarch or Alchemist Sage was capable of doing that in history!
But from what Jiang Yuebai had mentioned, Yi Yun had managed to do it?
Most of the ingredients which Yi Yun used to refine were sought out with the help of Luo King Palace. The Luo King knew how precious those ingredients were.
Such a pill could actually be successfully refined!?
This was preposterous!
The Luo King was taken aback for quite a while, feeling as though time itself was moving slowly.
He shot a glance at Heretic Hands. At that moment, even the arrogant and cold Heretic Hands wore a look a shock that was worse than the Luo King’s.
Heretic Hands was not an alchemist, but he would occasionally refine various pills, mystical pills and poison pills mostly. His understanding of alchemy was deeper than that of the Luo King’s. Therefore, the shock he suffered was worse.
“How can Lin Yun refine such a pill? He is way too terrifying!”
The Luo King wore a worried look. If Yi Yun was so skilled in alchemy, his influence would rise again. But of all things, he had completely offended Yi Yun.
“Daoist Heretic Hands, could your poison…”
That was what the Luo King was most worried about.
“The poison I implanted is colorless, odorless, formless, and textureless! Besides, this poison is a unique mystical formula known only to me. No matter how developed Lin Yun’s alchemical skills are, there’s no way for him to see through my poison.”
Heretic Hands was very confident about his poison arts. Different professions are like different worlds. Alchemy was completely different from poison arts.
Heretic Hands refused to believe that a human genius would waste his precious cultivation time to study poison.
“But… I’m worried that with his alchemical skills being so high and his repeated creation of miracles, he might not be poisoned to death even if he ate your poison.”
“How can that be possible?” Heretic Hands nodded. “I did underestimate the punk, but Luo King, do not deify him. His alchemical skills might have some trickery involved. If not, I absolutely can’t believe that he can reach such a level of attainment with less than a thousand years of study. If that’s the case, all the Alchemy Monarchs and Alchemist Sages in the Chaos Heavens have lived in vain!” Heretic Hands said firmly.
In fact, his inference was very logical.
“Daoist Heretic Hands, what you said makes sense. Sorry for my loss of composure. This fellow must have taken a shortcut, but even so, it’s terrifying.
“We have already delivered the poison. It’s naturally a joy if he dies from it. If he doesn’t, then he will know that we tampered with it. He will definitely hate us. To be hated by someone like this…”
The Luo King did not finish his sentence, afraid he would annoy Heretic Hands.
After all, he was the one that dragged Heretic Hands into this.
However, Heretic Hands did not seem angry. Instead, he licked his lips as a covetous killing intent flashed in his eyes.
He wished to know what trickery Yi Yun had used in his alchemy.
He guessed that it involved a huge secret of Yi Yun’s. If he were to obtain it, the aid it would give him would be unfathomable!
Since he was already a sworn enemy of Yi Yun, he might as well bet it all before Yi Yun fully developed his strength!
“Luo King! If Yi Yun has really eaten my secret poison, he will weaken in the next ten days. It will be the best time for us to attack!”
Since he had decided on taking action, Heretic Hands did not pin his hopes on his secret poison. Regardless what Yi Yun did, he would give his all!
