The Pill Refining Room gave off a faint medicinal fragrance as time flowed. With a wave of Mu Ru Yue’s hand, a few pills, which were enclosed in a green aura, flew out from the furnace and landed atop her hands.
These sparkling, translucent jade coloured pills gave off gentle rays of light under the sun and carried an enticing fragrance. Mu Ru Yue counted and found that there were thirty-six pills within the furnace.
If Wu Yu were to see this, he would probably be shocked speechless. She had manufactured a total of thirty-six pills from her first production of Earth Stage Mid Rank Essence Purification Pills. Such talent shouldn’t be called human, but the reincarnation of a demoness.
Mu Ru Yue wordlessly swallowed an Essence Purification Pill.
Instantly, an explosive force went rampaging within her body, causing crackling sounds to ring out. Mu Ru Yue tightly clenched her teeth, yet a trace of blood could be seen flowing out from the corner of her lips.
The effect of essence purification for cultivators was similar to them shedding their mortal bodies and exchanging their bones. This process of exchanging one’s bones would definitely be hard to bear. At this moment, Mu Ru Yue could feel the domineering powers purifying the meridians within her entire body.
‘It hurts! It feels as though my meridians are being torn apart….’
Mu Ru Yue slowly closed her eyes. With her body shaking from the pain, her small face was bleached an eye-piercing white beneath the sunlight. Still, she forcefully continued to bear with the intense pain. She gritted her teeth, yet not a single sound was heard from beginning to end.
Suddenly, a warm energy flowed into her body, unexpectedly alleviating the intense pain. She gradually opened her eyes and, at that instant, an exceptionally handsome face entered her sight.
“Wu Chen, why are you here?” Mu Ru Yue asked curiously. If she hadn’t seen wrongly, there was a trace of distress previously expressed in Ye Wu Chen’s eyes.
‘Heartache? How can that happen? Wu Chen doesn’t know anything, so how can he express such an emotion?’
Mu Ru Yue shook her head. When she took a second glance at the young man embracing her, she noticed that his eyes were as pure and bright as before.
‘I must have imagined it.’
“I’ve come to find my wife.” Ye Wu Chen smiled innocently as he blinked his eyes and continued, “Just now, I saw that my wife seemed to be in discomfort, so I wanted to help my wife.”
After hearing what Ye Yu Chen said, Mu Ru Yue realised that the pain she felt from purifying her body had vanished. She couldn’t help but look at the handsome young man before her with curiosity as she asked, “Wu Chen, what did you do to me?”
Ye Wu Chen looked innocently at Mu Ru Yue. “I’m not sure.”
“Forget it.” Mu Ru Yue shook her head as she knew she wouldn’t be able to get any answers from him. “Wu Chen, you should head back first. I’ll come and find you after I’ve settled my matters.”
‘Leave? How can I? Once I leave, won’t this girl before me suffer from that pain again? How can I bear to let her be in such a pain? It’s also my first time seeing such a strong willed girl withstand the pain of shedding her mortal body and having her bones exchanged without making a single sound.’
Yan Jin focused deeply on Ye Wu Chen’s face, a peculiar glimmer in his domineering eyes.
‘This brat isn’t simple. Should I tell that little girl? But he doesn’t seem to have any ill intent. I shall not tell that girl about this for now.’
Ye Wu Chen seemed to have felt Yan Jin’s gaze as he turned his vision towards him. The warning in Ye Wu Chen’s eyes made Yan Jin’s heart slightly palpitate.
‘This brat’s cultivation is very high.’
Yan Jin didn’t quite understand why he still needed to pretend to be a fool when he possessed such might. It was really impossible for the Beast race to understand the mentality of the Human race…
