Chapter 1987 (Raw 2085): Reporting the Harvest
Not showing the rage, showing might without the rage!
Suddenly, a startling might and pressure erupted despite Xiao Chen’s casual and relaxed appearance. He displayed the might without the rage.
“Good!” the First Palace Master praised softly as he clapped gently, feeling very satisfied.
Xiao Chen felt pleasantly surprised. Then, he dropped to one knee and said, “Many thanks to First Palace Master for your pointers. Xiao Chen is eternally grateful. There is no way for me to return this favor.”
There was an ancient saying: heaven, earth, king, family, and master. Aside from one’s parents, heaven, earth, and king, one could kneel to only one’s master.
Although the First Palace Master was not Xiao Chen’s master, his patient guidance greatly benefited Xiao Chen, making him half a master to Xiao Chen.
If not for the First Palace Master, Xiao Chen’s Firmament’s Rage might have taken at least ten more years to reach such levels of comprehension.
Xiao Chen’s experience was limited. In the past, he never would have thought that he could use Firmament’s Rage like that.
Follow current novels on lig_htnove_lwo_rld.com Right now, the First Palace Master was the best in the Divine Dragon Empire at using Firmament’s Rage.
The First Palace Master stepped forward and helped Xiao Chen up. Then, he said, “You are too polite. Just do your best to get into Ancestor Dragon City during the competition between the seven outer palaces.
“Actually, you could further develop many parts of Firmament’s Rage. You just have to broaden your line of thought. We cultivate different Dao. You and I execute Firmament’s Rage differently, so much so that it could be considered two different Martial Techniques.”
The First Palace Master continued, “I can tell that you also cultivate the will of ice. Unfortunately, you don’t use it much. It will probably be stuck at a bottleneck for a long time. I am filled with anticipation for how it will change if you manage to make a breakthrough in it and infuse it into Firmament’s Rage.”
Xiao Chen said softly, “I do rarely use the Ice Dao. I cultivate too many things and cannot afford to be distracted at the moment.”
“Unfortunately, none of us three Palace Masters use the saber. The expert bladesmen of the Heavenly Dragon Palace are all training in Ancestor Dragon City. It is rather problematic.”
The First Palace Master felt rather disappointed at being unable to guide Xiao Chen in the saber, the Dao that Xiao Chen was most proficient with.
“That’s it, then. It’s Third Brother’s turn. He is already impatient to start. Haha!” The First Palace Master laughed softly and disappeared from Xiao Chen’s sight with a wave of his hand.
The Third Palace Master appeared eagerly and said in a rush, “It is finally my turn. Xiao Chen, stop hiding it. Take out your best wine.”
Xiao Chen smiled bitterly, feeling helpless before the Third Palace Master’s enthusiasm. So, he could only take out a bottle of his limited stock of Thousand Year Flame.
“Come, come, come. Teach me how to drink it.”
Follow current novels on lig_htnove_lwo_rld.com The Third Palace Master clearly loved wine. When he saw this Thousand Year Flame, he realized that it should not be drunk casually.
Xiao Chen told the Third Palace Master of the method for drinking this Thousand Year Flame.
A Golden Crow soared into the air and circled the surroundings. After a few rounds, it turned into sparks that slowly dissipated.
After the first cup, the Third Palace Master felt the urge to continue drinking. He sighed softly, “If this wine appeared in the Golden Crow Empire, just a cup would sell for an astronomical sum. What a pity!”
Xiao Chen had already told the Third Palace Master that he did not have much of this wine left, to the Third Palace Master’s regret.
“Alright! It’s time to help you temper your physical body.”
It was time for proper matters.
“Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!”
Follow current novels on lig_htnove_lwo_rld.com Just as Xiao Chen felt anticipation for how the Third Palace Master would help him temper his physical body, a large pile of bottles suddenly appeared on the table, containing various types of Medicinal Pills.
The Third Palace Master pointed to the bottles and said, “These are Dragon Bone Paste, Rank 4 Heavenly Pills. I refined them from the bones of an Ancestor Dragon. Since I’m the one who refined them, their effects surpass their rank. There is a total of three bottles, and each bottle has fifty pills. Don’t hold back. Just refine them all, and when you run out, come look for me.
“These are Heavenly Cloud Blooming Jade Pills. They are for healing hidden injuries. The process of tempering the physical body can easily leave hidden injuries and damage your foundations. With my Heavenly Cloud Blooming Jade Pill, you can temper your body as much as you want without worries. I guarantee that you will not leave any hidden injuries in your body.
“These are Potala Pills, also Rank 4 Heavenly Pills. They are used for transforming your bloodline…”
The pile of Medicinal Pill bottles flabbergasted Xiao Chen. He did not know whether to cry or laugh as he said, “Third Palace Master, don’t tell me that these are the pointers you are providing me.”
The Third Palace Master smiled and said, “Of course. What else do you think it would be? Do I look like a physical body cultivator?”
“Not at all.”
“Thus, there is no other way. I am here to direct your consumption of Medicinal Pills. Medicinal Pills cannot be taken willy-nilly. If you did that with this pile of Rank 4 Heavenly Pills, not only would it be ineffective, but it would even harm your body.”
The Third Palace Master suddenly paused here, and his face turned serious. “I say, are you unwilling? I could tell long ago. Back then, when I wanted to take you in as my disciple, you were completely unwilling. After receiving tremendous benefits from my first brother and second brother, are you now looking down on this old man? How excellent. In that case, I’ll take everything back.”
This greatly startled Xiao Chen. How could that be?
Follow current novels on lig_htnove_lwo_rld.com Rank 4 Heavenly Pills completely covered the table. Just based on the value of a Rank 4 Heavenly Pill, this table here was probably worth millions of Primeval Heavenly Pills.
“Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!”
Xiao Chen reacted quickly, sweeping up all the bottles of Medicinal Pills before the Third Palace Master could. Then, he said, “Third Palace Master is joking. Everyone knows that on the path of cultivation, while talent is the most important, followed by resources, without resources, no matter how talented one is, it will be pointless.”
The Third Palace Master snorted softly. “It’s good that you know.”
Not daring to offend the Third Palace Master, Xiao Chen dealt with him carefully lest the Third Palace Master get angry again and take it all back.
With so many Medicinal Pills, Xiao Chen estimated that he should have no problem cultivating his Divine Dragon Body Tempering Art to the peak of the fifth layer.
His sixty Cauldron Force should be able to improve further.
Furthermore, all of this would take just a short time. Of course, the more important thing was to befriend the Third Palace Master.
For the next half-year, he would have to keep going to the Third Palace Master to obtain Medicinal Pills.
Clearly, the Third Palace Master was not genuinely angry. He took out a list and said, “Follow the instructions on this for their refinement. There are also some ways to use Medicinal Pills in there, like how to refine them to best effect.”
Follow current novels on lig_htnove_lwo_rld.com Xiao Chen took the list. The instructions on it were very detailed, warming his heart.
Although the Third Palace Master did not personally guide Xiao Chen as the other two Palace Masters had, his sincerity and efforts were no lesser than the other two’s.
“Many thanks, Third Palace Master.”
The Third Palace Master waved his hand and said, “There’s no need for thanks. Our Heavenly Dragon Palace is poorer than the other outer palaces. We cannot nurture as many heaven-class core disciples. Even fewer can get the three Palace Masters to nurture them with their full effort.
“Right, I just recalled something. You should have a Primal Chaos Grade flame on you, right?”
Xiao Chen nodded and spread his hands. Then, the Heavenly Snow Divine Flame and the Heavenly Flame appeared in them.
“To think that it is actually the Heavenly Snow Divine Flame and…hey, what flame is this? It seems like…”
The Third Palace Master stared at the Heavenly Flame in doubt. He said seriously, “Isn’t this the Universe Origin True Flame that only the royal clan of the Tianwu Dynasty can grasp?”
The Universe Origin True Flame!
When Xiao Chen heard this, he felt stunned. That must be the Heavenly Flame’s true name, the Universe Origin True Flame.
Follow current novels on lig_htnove_lwo_rld.com “How did you get this flame?”
Just when Xiao Chen was about to answer, the Third Palace Master suddenly said, “I forgot. How could you just tell others such a secret? However, use this flame less often in the future. Although the Universe Origin True Flame is not of a high rank now, it is still something that only the Tianwu Dynasty’s royal clan may grasp.”
“What do you mean?”
“You really don’t know, not even where it comes from?” The Third Palace Master gave Xiao Chen a somewhat strange look. Then, he explained, “The original flame seed of the Universe Origin True Flame is in a secret realm of the Tianwu Dynasty’s royal clan. That is the forbidden land of all the royal clan’s forbidden lands. If anyone of the royal clan can pass the test, they are allowed to take a strand of flame from the original flame seed and nurture it for themself.
“Be more cautious in the future and don’t tell others about it. If anyone says that it is the Universe Origin True Flame, stubbornly deny it. Say that this is the Dragon Race’s Extreme Thunder True Flame. In any case, ordinary people can’t tell. You also do not know the Tianwu Dynasty’s Martial Techniques, so no one will doubt it.”
Xiao Chen suddenly recalled that Chu Chaoyun also had the Heavenly Flame but lacked the Origin Flame. He wondered if Chu Chaoyun went to the Tianwu Dynasty and where Chu Chaoyun was now.
Aside from Xiao Chen, Chu Chaoyun was the only other person from the Kunlun Realm.
Wait, that’s not right. There is also the Kṣitigarbha Bodhisattva, who was brought up.
“Alright, I’m leaving now. If you have any need, you can come to the Heavenly Pill Pavilion to find me.”
The Third Palace Master stood up, preparing to leave and sneakily take away the Thousand Year Flame on the table while Xiao Chen was distracted.
Follow current novels on lig_htnove_lwo_rld.com “Wait.”
“What’s the matter?” the Third Palace Master asked with a somewhat guilty conscience.
The Third Palace Master said lazily, “Whatever it is, tell me in the future. Leave it for next time.”
The Third Palace Master spoke as he walked, preparing to sneak away.
When Xiao Chen saw the situation, he said urgently, “It is a medicine cauldron that can withstand the flame of a stellar core. Senior, are you really not going to take a look?”
This staggered the Third Palace Master. He spun around, revealing a dumbfounded expression.
“It is a medicine cauldron that can withstand nine stellar cores simultaneously. There is also a rudimentary Divine Pill in it,” Xiao Chen said honestly. This thing had a very scary origin. However, it was useless in his hands.
In the hands of the Third Palace Master, it would be a different story.
