Chapter 325: A bit broken?
“Big sister Yu Xi, going on like this isn’t the way.” Nangong Ying Xue looked around, “This place is this big and there are few things here for alchemists. If just the two of us search, we might not find anything even if we search all day.”
Ye Yu Xi also noticed this problem. They had underestimated the size of this underground market before they came here.
They thought it would be the same as the Ningyuan City market, but looking at it now, the Ningyuan City market was less than half its size!
“Ying Xue, we’ll split up and search.” Ye Yu Xi and Nangong Ying Xue split up.
The two of them searched for an entire day and still didn’t find what they were looking for. When they saw that it was dark, they could only helplessly leave.
Returning to the inn, Ye Yu Xi and Nangong Ying Xue returned to their rooms to rest.
The morning of the next day, they headed to the underground market with the same route from yesterday.
Before entering the market, Ye Yu Xi and Nangong Ying Xue came up with a plan. The two of them would split to search and Ye Yu Xi would let Ying Xue bring Huo Ling along.
That way if Ying Xue found something or she found a suitable cauldron, they could communicate through Huo Ling.
The two of them dived into the market again.
Ye Yu Xi wandered for several hours, but she found nothing at all. Here were some “luxury” stalls that were selling pills, but they weren’t selling cauldrons. After going to several places selling pills, she still found nothing.
After half a day of searching, Ye Yu Xi finally found something. Most of the luxury items were placed under an awning and that awning had a sign hung on it.
For example, those mainly selling pills would have a “medicine” character on it.
Those mainly selling cultivation techniques had the “martial” character on it.
Noticing this, it made it much easier for Ye Yu Xi.
Only at noon did Ye Yu Xi send a message to Huo Ling in her mind. Huo Ling replied, “This treasure is dying of boredom and my stomach is so hungry…..”
Huo Ling and Ye Yu Xi talked in their mind. Ye Yu Xi soon had a bold idea, Huo Ling could fly!
As for the alchemy cauldron…..According to what Ye Yu Xi remembered, those things were quite big.
If she had Huo Ling investigate from the air, as long as it wasn’t under an awning and in an open stall, Huo Ling should be able to see it.
“Huo Ling, search from the air. See if there are any cauldrons, tell me if you find one.” Ye Yu Xi said to Huo Ling in her mind.
“Oh.” Huo Ling said in a cute voice. Flapping his wings, he flew off Nangong Ying Xue’s shoulder.
Nangong Ying Xue saw Huo Ling fly away. According to her plans with Ye Yu Xi, if she found the cauldron, the little bird would tell her. Now the situation was different from what they agreed on, so Ying Xue didn’t chase after him.
“Master, there are so many people and there are so many herbs…..” Huo Ling looked down from above and saw things that he liked…..
Only under Ye Yu Xi’s “threat” and “temptation”, he didn’t go down to investigate and continued to help Ye Yu Xi find a cauldron.
After around an hour, Huo Ling spoke to Ye Yu Xi again, “Master, I found it, but…..”
“Where is it?” Ye Yu Xi quickly replied in her mind. After spending all this effort, they had finally found one!
“Wu…..Master, how about I try looking some more? This treasure feels this cauldron is a bit broken, it isn’t comparable to the one from before.” Huo Ling’s voice was a bit conflicted and his tone looked down on the cauldron.
