597 – Making the Request; Using Their Furnace for Pill Concocting (3)
As they were discussing about this, Cheng Xiao Xiao suddenly got an idea and quickly brought it up. “Little Yuteng, don’t we have a Ying Yang Pool? Do you think we will be able to get tinder from the blazing water? If that’s the case, we will no longer need to look for tinder here.”
Little Yuteng thought about it for a little bit, “Young Mistress, I’d think so. But, the tinder under the blazing water would not be easy to control. I can’t guarantee that even I’d be able to do that, never mind your regular apothecaries. They just might be burned to ashes as soon as they touched the tinder from the blazing water.
“That might be problem. Little Yuteng, give it some more thought when you have time. If we can control the tinder from the blazing water, it’d be much easier for us to concoct our own pills in the future.”
“Alright, Young Mistress. Let me give it a try first. It’s hard to say if I will succeed though.”
“Okay. Let’s give it a try first.”
When Cheng Xiao Xiao and Little Yuteng had finished communicating, the two men leading the way also came to a stop. Old Man Ji said, “Young Madam Cheng, Young Master Mo. We have arrived at the concocting chamber.”
“We will only need one room,” said Cheng Xiao Xiao as she nodded.
Ji Hongwei asked, “Young Madam Cheng, would you like us to send an apothecary to help you out?”
“Thank you for your kind offer, Valley Master Ji. But let us give it a try first. I think we will be able to handle it.” Cheng Xiao Xiao declined his offer with a smile. He must be kidding. If their apothecary was presence to help, he’d see their formula.
“You know how to concoct pills too, Young Madam Cheng?” Old Man Ji’s eyes widened in surprise.
They thought Cheng Xiao Xiao and Mo Xuanzun came to them because they needed their help. They hadn’t expected that Cheng Xiao Xiao could concoct her own pills.
“Let me give it a try first!”
The two went silent and didn’t know what to say.
They arranged for Cheng Xiao Xiao to be in the best concocting chamber, walked her through how to control the tinder before the grandfather and grandson took off.
Inside of the concocting chamber, Mo Xuanzun set up a parameter before the two of them sat down in front of the pads but neither one of them started on it right away.
“XiaoXiao, aren’t you worry that they’d deny us?” ask Mo Xuanzun with a smile.
“No.” Cheng Xiao Xiao’s beautiful eyes flickered and, pointing at the furnace in front of her, she said, “As long as we can concoct the universal detoxification pills, they’d for sure accept our proposal.”
“Or, they might be willing to provide for us furnace and tinder but apothecaries and alchemists might be more difficult. Or that, even if they agree, getting their disciples to want to leave here would be tricky.”
Mo Xuanzun analyzed their current situation.
Little Yuteng appeared along with her voice. She blinked at him, smiled, and said, “I think we can definitely get this one person!”
“Oh? Who is it?”
“Little Yuteng, who did you have your eyes on?”
Cheng Xiao Xiao and Mo Xuanzun asked at the same time.
“Someone sneaky and, most importantly, he is very restless right now as we speak.” Little Yuteng grinned.
“Really? That’s someone like that? No way!” Cheng Xiao Xiao didn’t really believe her. Looking at her complacent look, she said to her, “Okay, Little Yuteng, stop with the secrecy already. Tell us. Who is it?”
“Nooo, I can’t share right now. It won’t be fun anymore if I do, Young Mistress. Just sit back and wait for the drama to unfold!”
Little Yuteng didn’t want to share right away but, under Cheng Xiao Xiao’s gaze, she finally offered a hint. “Young Mistress, do you remember how you were injured a year ago?”
“You mean to tell me that the person who’d hurt me is at the Valley of the Alchemists?”
