Chapter 1145: Recovering to His Peak
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Eventually, after Xu Que had taken nearly 2,000 medicinal items to restore his Celestial Core Power, his Dantian finally changed! At last, the Green Lotus Seed’s speed of absorbing the Celestial Core Power had slowed down. At the same time, it blossomed brilliantly, illuminating the whole of his Dantian. Wherever the brilliance shone, there was a vital aura.
The original dark and frightening Dantian had become beautifully inviting—it was just like a glossy, green pasture!
“Uh?” Xu Que was startled and stopped swallowing medicinal items.
He found that the Green Lotus Seed seemed to look a little different. It was plumper and more saturated than before. There were many small threadlike fibers on the surface of the seed, which were all rooted in his Dantian, and the fibers were slowly absorbing the Celestial Core Power, while continually delivering vitality, constantly improving the body, so that the body was slowly enriching itself.
It was similar to some kind of optimization program, which could constantly optimize and strengthen the body. Although the speed was very slow, it accumulated over a long period of time, and its effect would certainly be considerable! After Xu Que discovered that fact, he finally had a smile on his face and found his balance.
After expending so much effort, at last there’s some return!
Of course, the most important thing was that this Green Lotus Seed was temporarily full. The Celestial Core Power that he had gotten from the medicinal items had gradually accumulated in his Dantian. With the System’s automatic recovery ability, the amount of Celestial Core Power in his Dantian was slowly increasing at a visible rate. Moreover, it was automatically divided into Five Elements, which corresponded to his Five Elements Celestial Spiritual Roots!
“Oh!” Xu Que exhaled a long breath and slowly opened his eyes.
That series of actions had consumed a lot of what he had. It cost him tens of thousands of Acting Tough Points to buy nearly 2,000 medicinal items. Fortunately, he could stop buying them, and there was a new gain!
He found that his cultivation stage had shown signs of loosening, as if as long as the Celestial Core Power in his Dantian was restored to perfection, he could break through and enter the Medium Stage of the Half-Celestial Stage!
“It seems like the old saying is true, it was a blessing in disguise!” Xu Que couldn’t help but smile ruefully.
The greatest gain of this trip was definitely the Green Lotus Seed, and then it was the opportunity to break through in his cultivation stage. That kind of breakthrough achieved without effort was indeed very valuable!
But Xu Que felt the pain of losing the Thunder Element Celestial Core Power. All those years of Heavenly Tribulations, he had absorbed all kinds of essence from the Heavenly Thunders. Now they were all swallowed up by the Green Lotus Seeds. They could no longer be recovered, and he could only try to steal some back from his next Heavenly Tribulation.
“Oh, I want to go through my Heavenly Tribulations all of a sudden!” Thinking of that, Xu Que couldn’t help but stretch his back as he said this with a face full of satisfaction.
The next moment, the two tightly shut wooden doors in the flying boat suddenly opened at the same time. Feng Lanwu and Xiao Ru both came out and looked at Xu Que in surprise, “Fellow cultivator, you…have you recovered from your injury?”
“Yes! I’ve recovered, but it’ll take more than an hour to return to my peak!” Xu Que stood up, smiling from ear to ear. Within an hour, the Celestial Core Power in his Dantian would be perfected. By that time, he would not only recover to his peak, but also step into the Medium Stage of the Half-Celestial Stage. His strength would grow by leaps and bounds!
This feeling of re-mastering his power and ability of self-protection had Xu Que feeling very comfortable. Now even if Feng Lanwu let him go, he didn’t need to worry about the dangers outside.
“Congratulations, fellow cultivator!” Just then, Feng Lanwu, with a smile, congratulated Xu Que. Although she was shocked that Xu Que’s injuries were recovered, she didn’t ask many questions. After all, everyone had their own secrets, especially Xu Que’s uncommon and shocking situation. If he didn’t take the initiative to explain, she wouldn’t ask.
On the contrary, Xiao Ru cried out anxiously, “Oh my, are you really all right? That kind of injury can’t be solved with a medicinal item. Was that an elixir? Didn’t you say that your master is the King Refiner of the Inferior Artifact? Why did he become the King Refiner of the Pill?” She said whatever she wanted, and she wasn’t as mindful as Feng Lanwu.
Xu Que explained without hesitation, in a composed manner, “The King Refiner of the Inferior Artifact is my Great Master. The King Refiner of the Pill is my Second Master. Is this explanation all right?”
“You have two masters!” Xiao Ru suddenly saw the light.
Feng Lanwu was startled and astonished.
Is there anyone else in this world that can be accepted as a disciple by the King Refiner of the Inferior Artifact and the King Refiner of the Pill at the same time?
Doesn’t that mean that this guy knows not only refining equipment, but also alchemy?
This…how is it possible? Where did he get so much time and energy?
“Good, now that you’ve recovered, then quickly prepare your refinery equipment for us to see. We’re running out of time. We have to return in a month!” Xiao Ru urged him.
Xu Que was startled. He was reminded of his promise to help Feng Lanwu. But there was a problem. He was truly only a Nine Star Equipment Refining Master and he was a long way from being an Equipment Forging Grandmaster. Moreover, there was no advanced Occupation Skill Book in the System store to upgrade himself. This was a bit awkward! Before, he could excuse himself that because he was injured he couldn’t refine, but now that his injury was recovered, it was a bit difficult to find another excuse!
What should I do?
Xu Que had gotten himself into an awkward situation, and his own bragging faced the danger of being exposed. It was such an embarrassment!
“Fellow cultivator, is there any inconvenience?” Just then, Feng Lanwu asked with a face of slight bitterness and disappointment. In fact, she didn’t hold much hope on Xu Que. Now when she saw Xu Que’s embarrassed look, the last hope she harbored was shattered.
“I have just recovered from my injury. I’m not used to it. Why don’t you give me a room and let me practice by myself first and take some time to recover?” Xu Que squeezed out an awkward smile.
Anyway, he had to try first. What if he was really a genius in equipment refinery, maybe he could really break through to the level of Equipment Forging Grandmaster!
“No problem. You can have my room!” Xiao Ru responded immediately.
Feng Lanwu hesitated a little but she didn’t say anything after all. She had thought of giving up, but seeing Xiao Ru’s enthusiasm, it made her feel that maybe she could try again. Anyway, she had decided to try any possibility as an attempt to break the deadlock. After all, they had given Xu Que more than a month’s time. There was no harm in giving him the remaining time of the last month!
Because besides that, she had no other choice!
“Okay, this matter shouldn’t be delayed. I’ll go start!”
Xu Que felt too guilty to stay any longer, and he hurried to Xiao Ru’s room. He closed the door and locked it. If he wasn’t successful, he would summon his courage and confess to Feng Lanwu that there wasn’t any Equipment Forging Grandmaster, but there was someone comparable to the Earth Celestial Stage. He could still offer his help!
At the same time, inside the flying boat, looking at the closed door, Xiao Ru couldn’t help but ask Feng Lanwu, “Second Miss, do you think he could really be a Fifth Grade Equipment Forging Grandmaster?”
“I…I don’t know.,” Feng Lanwu said with a bitter smile as she shook her head.
“Second Miss, in fact…in fact, I can also see that he’s deceiving us, but I always felt that he’s mysterious. I wanted him to try so I made the decision to give him my room. Second Miss, you don’t blame Xiao Ru, do you?” Xiao Ru looked up and watched Feng Lanwu with her eager eyes.
With a sudden laugh, Feng Lanwu rubbed her little head and said, “Of course not. Even if you didn’t speak, I think I might have chosen to let him try it too! As for the result, I’ll leave it to God’s will.”
