Chapter 47 The Skeleton Girl
Chapter 47 The Skeleton Girl
The Liudao Sect's solemn-style hall, which was filled with superior-tier spiritual artifacts, had a very dismal aura.
"You guys robbed the two sets of spirit herbs?"
Chen Donglai was still the same. He showed a poker face and talked coldly. However, he couldn't hide his impatient and annoyance.
Chen Donglai had been tired of being the Liudao Sect Leader for a long time.
However, since the Liudao Sect and the noble families helped him a lot, he had to be in the position. Otherwise, he couldn't imagine what kind of trouble this group of scions who were used to doing whatever they wanted would come up with after he stepped down from the position. Everything would be fine if the three Nascent Soul stage Grandmasters were still around, but now, they had mysteriously disappeared…
With this in mind, Chen Donglai couldn't help but feel a little tired even though he was a cultivator who ranked 9 in the Core Formation stage.
However, due to the special nature of his cultivation method, he could hide his emotions well. Thus, he still looked as cold as ice.
"Sect leader, don't worry. We've already spread the news about Fang Jinyu returning the spirit herbs to us of his own accord. If he doesn't know how to appreciate our kindness, we only need to firmly deny his words. At that time, who will believe in an unknown Foundation Establishment stage cultivator? Everyone will believe us, the Liudao Sect, one of the six great sects, right?"
Liu Yuxiu quickly said.
Although Liu Yuxiu's father was also ranked 9 in the Core Formation stage, Chen Donglai was more likely to break through the Nascent Soul stage. Therefore, Liu Yuxiu didn't dare to act rashly in front of Chen Donglai.
Meanwhile, a Core Formation stage cultivator said, "Sect leader, Junior Brother Liu is doing this for the Liudao Sect! Although Fang Jinyu refined 12 Six Alloy Elixirs has exceeded our expectations, it isn't enough. After all, there are quite a few people in the sect who are qualified to obtain a Six Alloy Elixir. Moreover, we also have to keep one or two elixirs for the ordinary disciples who ranked 9 in the Foundation Establishment stage."
The Core Formation stage cultivator was Liu Yuxiu's father's disciple. His name was Qiu Shengyi. Although he was a Core Formation stage cultivator, he was only a disciple with no background. Moreover, Core Formation stage cultivators needed more cultivation resources, which made him even rely on the Liu family.
Most of the resources in the cultivation world were under the aristocratic families' control. Among them, the top-notch family had a monopoly of nearly 70% of resources!
The Liu family was one such top-notch family.
It was because one of the three Nascent Soul stage cultivators in the Liudao Sect was from the Liu family.
Chen Donglai glanced at Qiu Shengyi and immediately understood the Liu family's attitude. Hence, he said, "Then who are you going to ask to refine the Six Alloy Elixir?"
Chen Donglai didn't want to get involved in the matter anymore. He wanted to avoid ending up disgracing himself.
"Sect leader, my master has already contacted an old friend of his." Qiu Shengyi immediately laughed, because Chen Donglai's words indicated that the matter would be over. However, they couldn't do such a thing again.
Upon hearing it, Chen Donglai couldn't help but felt strange and asked, "Isn't Elder Liu worried that the prescription of the elixir will be leaked so he has been refusing to ask a Core Formation stage alchemist to refine it?"
Qiu Shengyi laughed awkwardly and said, "It's because there's no other way…" He had once seen the prescription for the Six Alloy Elixir. However, even though he wasn't an alchemist and was only ranked 1 in the Core Formation stage, he could tell that the prescription involved the profoundness of the circulation of the Core Formation stage's magical powers. Not to mention the Core Formation stage cultivators with high cultivation bases.
Luckily, the spirit herbs required for the Six Alloy Elixir were rare, and the Liu family firmly controlled the core spirit herbs.
Therefore, even if the prescription was leaked, they would only encounter some minor troubles.
At the Seven Treasures Immortal City.
A cultivator wearing a bamboo hat walked into an unremarkable small elixir store.
Initially, it wasn't a big deal. Every day, many cultivators would enter and leave the elixir store. They were either here to buy elixirs or sell spirit herbs. Some wealthy cultivators who wanted to learn alchemy would occasionally come to buy spirit herbs.
However, when the cultivator gradually revealed his aura, it triggered the array formation in the elixir store. Afterward, a white-haired came to the front desk in a panic and invited the cultivator to the backyard. He immediately bowed and said, "I, an old man, greets my senior! May I ask if is there something you want to instruct me since you're here?"
The Core Formation stage cultivator said calmly, "Although the Sun family is down and out, you still have a bit of wealth."
The white-haired old man was shocked when he heard it.
Luckily, the mysterious cultivator's following words made him feel at ease.
"Don't worry. I'm not here to trouble you. On the contrary, I have a common enemy with you. It's just that my enmity with the Liu family isn't as deep as your Sun family's."
The white-haired old man couldn't help but ask, "Are you mentioning the Liu family of the Liudao Sect?"
The mysterious cultivator said, "Absolutely!"
The white-haired old man cursed, "The Liu family is indeed a bunch of trash! They are also a bunch of ingrates!" Although he didn't know what kind of enmity the mysterious cultivator had with the Liu family, he was sure that it wasn't wrong to curse them.
The best way to get closer to someone was to scold their common enemy.
The mysterious cultivator said, "I like what you've said. However, I'm here to ask for your Sun family's help to spread a piece of news."
The white-haired old man quickly said, "Senior, please go ahead."
The Sun family was also one of the top-notch families in the past. As the saying goes, a centipede dies but never falls. Even if the Sun family was in decline, they still had some wealth and connections.
Of course, it was best not to use their wealth and connections.
However, how dare he, a cultivator who ranked 1 in the Foundation Establishment stage, reject a great Core Formation stage cultivator who came looking for him?
"The three Nascent Soul stage Grandmasters of the Liudao Sect mysteriously disappeared for a long time. It's just that the Liudao Sect has been hiding the news for a few years."
"What?!" The white-haired old man was shocked.
"You'll understand if you recall the strange things that the Liudao Sect has done over the years." The mysterious cultivator turned around and left.
However, before the mysterious cultivator left the elixir store, he emphasized, "As long as the Liudao Sect isn't destroyed, no matter how much wealth and connections the Sun family has accumulated, it won't be enough to threaten the Liu family."
The white-haired old man was stunned. When he came back to his senses, the mysterious cultivator had disappeared. However, there was a jade bottle in front of him.
The white-haired old man was shocked as he opened the jade bottle.
It was because there were 10 Foundation Establishment Elixirs in the bottle!
"This senior even know about Ah Yu's condition, so it seems I have to do it. Besides, this senior is right. As long as the Liudao Sect isn't destroyed, those seniors won't dare to attack the Liu family even if they want to help our Sun family." The white-haired old man became serious and made his decision.
However, the white-haired old man had to meet his granddaughter first.
The white-haired old man activated an array formation, and a mysterious passage appeared in a hidden place of the elixir store.
Sorcery energy was lingering in the passage.
As the white-haired old man entered the passage, he soon saw a white skeleton that was as clear as jade. Moreover, he could see a vague figure of a beautiful girl on the white skeleton.
