Chapter 68: Alchemy Success
Sima You Yue set aside a few sets of the ingredients necessary to refine the Coagulation Pill. Under Mo Sha’s careful watch, she purified each type.
As Mo Sha watched her refine, his eyes revealed traces of praise.
She had not been practicing Alchemy for long, however, her actions were very proficient. She appeared not only to have talent in Alchemy, but was also very hardworking and determined
After refining the medicinal ingredients, Sima You Yue looked to the side, towards Mo Sha.
“Put the ingredients into the Pill Furnace in order. I will tell you what to take note off at every step.” Mo Sha said.
Sima You Yue sucked in a deep breath. As she placed the purified ingredients successively into the pill furnace, Mo Sha would always voice out when it was time to place the second ingredient or time to control the fire.
With Mo Sha giving directions, after half an hour, a pill with a faint medicinal smell slowly emerged.
“Okay, put out the fire.” Mo Sha said.
Sima You Yue extinguished the fire that was under the pill furnace. In her heart, she complained that if she had her personal flames, it would not be so troublesome whenever she wanted to put out the fire.
She opened the pill furnace and took out a pill from within. Although it appeared a little bit ugly, this was the first pill that she had successfully alchemised. Just thinking about it made her emotional.
However, Mo Sha was not too satisfied with her end result, saying, “Let me refine it once, you should stand at my side and watch carefully.”
“Oh.” Sima You Yue knew that this was Mo Sha’s way of looking down on her final product, however, this did not influence the way she felt.
She took out a jade pill bottle and placed the pill inside before standing to the side to watch how Mo Sha did it. Looking at how he stood in front of the pill furnace without moving, she touched her chin and thought, “How does a spirit even do Alchemy anyway.”
“I will intentionally slow down my actions, you have to watch carefully.” After Mo Sha said this, with a thought, a ball of black colored flame appeared in his hand. He casually flung it and that flame flew to the bottom of the pill furnace. Once that pill furnace was hot, he placed the ingredients in to refine one by one.
At the moment that the black flame appeared, Sima You Yue felt a kind of terrifying temperature. However, she had been pressed down by that pressure. If not for the fact that her soul was a bit more sensitive, it would have been hard to discover it.
She wanted to ask Mo Sha what kind of flame this was. However, once she saw that he only doing the refining process, she swallowed her question and seriously studied what he did.
Although Mo Sha had intentionally slowed down his movements, he had only used half the time that she did to refine a pill.
He took back his flame then asked Sima You Yue to take out the pill.
Sima You Yue quickly stepped forward, opening the cover with unparalleled excitement. Inside it lay pills that were perfectly round and smelled intoxicating. One could tell with a single look that it was more than a few times better than the pill that she had refined.
“Alright, you should first digest the information that I told you and ponder over it on your own.” After saying this, Mo Sha returned to the Spirit Stone before Sima You Yue could even ask him about his black flame.
“Left in such a hurry.” Sima You Yue pursed her lips and thought to ask him the next time. She sat on a stool and closed her eyes. Mo Sha’s earlier actions during his refinement of the pill played out before her eyes.
After one day, Little Spirit smelled a fragrant scent and his eyes flashed. In a moment, he appeared at the Alchemy Room.
“Master, you successfully refined a pill?”
Sima You Yue placed the pill that she had just made into her jade bottle and ignored Little Spirit’s gluttonous appearance, saying, “Yep, just successfully refined one.”
“Haha, didn’t I say that you would definitely be able to become an Alchemist!” Little Spirit laughed out happily and looked at Sima You Yue as if he was looking at a precious child.
Sima You Yue threw the Jade bottle into Little Spirit’s hands, saying, “Tidy it up.”
After that, with a flash, she left the Spirit Pearl.
Little Spirit saw that the Alchemy Room was in a complete mess and waved his little hand, returning the room to its original clean state. After that, he held the jade bottle gleefully and disappeared.
Inside the house, Sima You Yue sat cross legged on the bed. In a moment, she opened her eyes and spat out a breath of muddy qi because the fatigue of alchemy just now had completely disappeared.
“Yue Yue, while you were locked away these few days, Fatty Qu and the rest came to find you a few times.” Little Roar saw that Sima You Yue had woken up and said as it lay on the table.
“Is anything wrong?” Sima You Yue got down from the bed.
“I don’t know. They only wandered about by the gate for a while then thought you were cultivating so they didn’t knock.” Little Roar’s tiny legs wiggled as it thought to flip over, however, it failed after trying a few times.
Sima You Yue walked over and bent her head down, stretching out a hand to help flip it over, saying indifferently, “You should diet.”
She opened the door and left after saying it.
Little Roar lay on the table. Watching Sima You Yue’s back, its eyes filled with tears as it howling with grief: you’re the one who made me fat in the past, but now you’re ignoring me because I’m fat!
Sima You Yue walked out the room and just happened to see Ouyang Fei enter from outside. A faint scent of blood wafted from his body.
Ouyang Fei looked over at her without saying a word and returned to his own house.
Sima You Yue touched her nose. The pressure around this guy was comparatively lower today, could he have been beaten up by someone?
“Yue Yue, you’ve come out from seclusion?” Wei Zi Qi came out from his own house and smiled towards Sima You Yue.
“Yeah.” Sima You Yue nodded, “Little Roar said that you guys came to find me during this period of time?”
“Right, it has to do with our mission. We actually wanted to discuss some things with you, how seeing how there wasn’t any activity while you were in your room, we didn’t want to disturb you.” Wei Zi Qi said.
“Did anything happen?” Sima You Yue asked.
“It’s because our mission this time is a bit more difficult so we decided to move out earlier. In any case, classes have stopped recently. So we were planning on waiting until you came out before moving.” Wei Zi Qi said quite apologetically. It was actually a collective thing but they hadn’t waited for Sima You Yue to come out before making a decision.
“So quick?” Sima You Yue was a little surprised. Looking at the way Wei Zi Qi was acting, she smiled and said, “It looks like I’ve ended up wasting everyone’s journey time. Since this is the case, let me pack up a little and go back to let my Grandfather know before going.”
“You don’t have to rush.” Wei Zi Qi said, “Looking at Ouyang Fei, it looks like we can’t go for the next two days. You can take your time to prepare.”
“Alright. Then I’ll go back first and be back tomorrow.” Sima You Yue said.
“Okay.” Wei Zi Qi nodded and watched as Sima You Yue closed the door behind her. He suddenly thought of something and called out after her, “Oh right, during the time that you were in closed door cultivation, that He Qiu Zhi has been discovered dead in the city. The other party has acted so efficiently, it should have been done by the Nalan Clan.”
Hearing news of He Qiu Zhi’s death, Sima You Yue was not surprised. She knew that the Nalan Clan would definitely not let her off.
She waved to Wei Zi Qi before turning to leave.
Those who wished to harm her would die sooner or later.
Returning to the General’s residence, Sima You Yue looked for Sima You Lie to tell him about her need to leave for a period of time to complete a mission. At first, Sima Lie did not agree, however, in the face of her coaxing and pestering, he agreed reluctantly.
Watching her leave, he shouted to his main servant, “Fifth Young Master wants to go out, go and send some men to protect him.”
“Yes, Lord.” The main servant sent out the order and arranged for some people to guard him.
Sima You Yue stayed at home for that night and left on the morning of the second day to return back to school. After walked along a few streets, she entered a small alley.
“Since you’ve come, why bother hiding?”
