After entering Profound Pill Sect for four months, other than the first month, Yang Kai had spent the remaining three months refining Ten Revolutions Heartless Pills every day. It could be said that his refining of these Heaven Rank Pill had reached perfection, so even if he closed his eyes to refine them now, there wouldn’t be any problems.
He even had the spare energy to secretly observe the reactions of the Sect Master and the two Elders. The spiritual force on the other side surged slightly, and it was obvious that the three of them were secretly communicating with each other.
However, since he was already mentally prepared to expose some things, he had to spend some effort to refine it this time.
As the white Pill Fire surged, Yang Kai’s hand seals changed and time passed.
A few hours later, Yang Kai used his Condensing Pill Art and patted the pill furnace, causing a light sound to ring out. At the same time, a rich pill fragrance filled the air.
Taking a deep breath, Yang Kai took two steps back and cupped his fists, “Reporting to Sect Master and the two Elders, Disciple has finished refining. Please check!”
The three people above stared at him blankly, their faces filled with shock and disbelief. They were the higher-ups of Profound Pill Sect and had seen many things in their lives. They had seen all kinds of great storms, and even when they were competing with major Pill Refining forces for Divine Weapons, their expressions remained unchanged.
However, at this moment, the three of them didn’t know how to face what they were seeing.
Everything that had happened before had simply exceeded their understanding. If they hadn’t witnessed it with their own eyes, the three of them would never have believed that such a bizarre thing had actually happened.
“How long?” Baili Yunsang was the first to regain his composure, turning to look at the Great Elder and asking.
Wu Fengfua silently calculated for a moment before replying, “Less than three hours!”
Yu Boyang sucked in a breath of cold air. Although he had expected this, when he heard this, he was still shocked!
Refining a furnace of Ten Revolutions Heartless Pills actually took less than six hours! Moreover, it was refined by a Heaven Pill Master. Even if these old fogies were to take action, it would take at least four to five hours. After all, they were all veteran Alchemists, if other Heaven Pill Master were to do it, it would take at least six hours!
Such a result had already surpassed the Profound Pill Sect… no, it had surpassed the record of the entire Divine Weapon World.
Baili Yunsang nodded slightly, “The time has been shortened by at least half, now we’ll see how the pill is.” Saying so, he personally walked down, followed by the Great Elder and Third Elder.
In a few steps, the three of them stood in front of the pill furnace, their faces filled with anticipation and anxiety, as if there was something important inside.
“Open it,” Baili Yunsang ordered.
Wu Fenghua nodded and lifted his hand to slap the pill furnace. The furnace lid flew up and the situation inside was immediately reflected in his eyes.
Yu Boyang suddenly exclaimed, “Five Pill Success!” Stretching out his hand, he took the five pills and examined them carefully, his expression becoming even more shocked, “Two high rank pills, three mid rank pills!”
Hearing this, Wu Fenghua quickly took the five pills from Yu Boyang’s hands and examined them as well. He even used his fingernail to pick up some of the medicinal powder and put it into his mouth to taste it before saying, “There is no problem with the efficacy.”
Turning his head, he stared at Yang Kai in shock. What he saw in front of him was simply amazing!
Baili Yunsang suppressed the excitement in his heart and tried his best to calm his voice as he asked Yang Kai, “How did you do it?”
Yang Kai cupped his fists and said, “Disciple modified the pill recipe for the Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill and also used some other Pill Refining methods.”
Wu Fenghua nodded and said, “The pill recipe you used to refine them were indeed different from when you first entered the Sect. Many of the processes were simplified, and some of the methods you used were even more unique. I’ve never seen such an improvement before, so it can indeed greatly shorten the time taken to refine pills and increase the quantity and quality of the pills! But… how did you think of such improvements?”
The recipe for the Profound Pill Sect’s Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill had undergone countless modifications by countless experts before finally being finalized. In any case, this is a Heaven Pill recipe, and only Spirit Pill Master had the qualifications to improve it. Baili Yunsang had tried to improve this recipe many years ago, but unfortunately, he had failed and wasted two years of his time, so he could only give up.
What even Baili Yunsang couldn’t accomplish was actually accomplished by a Heaven Pill Master who had only entered the Sect four months ago, and the improved pill recipe were more than twice as good as the original!
This was not something a human could accomplish.
“Disciple doesn’t know!” Yang Kai cupped his fists and replied.
“You don’t know?” Yu Boyang glared, “How could you not know? Didn’t you improve this pill recipe?”
Yang Kai replied, “Reporting to Third Elder, the pill recipe was indeed improved by Disciple, but Disciple didn’t know why it was so improved. Disciple simply felt that it was better to make these changes while refining the pills, so Disciple decided to do so.”
These words made Baili Yunsang and the other two confused.
“It’s like this…” Yang Kai quickly brought out the explanation he had prepared beforehand, “Disciple was fortunate enough to join the Profound Pill Sect. At the very beginning, when I first put up a sign to refine the Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill, I was still using the original pill recipe, but one night after that, as if I was dreaming, Disciple heard a strange sound. This sound was unclear and impossible to understand, Disciple had no idea what it was talking about. But after waking up and refining the Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill, Disciple instinctively made some changes, and after that, every three or five days, that sound would ring out, allowing Disciple to gain some benefits. After several months of accumulation, Disciple improved the pill recipe of the Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill to such an extent, and even learned some special methods for Pill Refining!”
This was an explanation Yang Kai had come up with in the first place. After all, his current performance was a bit strange, and there was no way to explain it without a good reason.
Unexpectedly, when the three of them heard this, their faces filled with shock.
Baili Yunsang asked, “You said you heard a strange sound?”
“That’s right!” Yang Kai nodded, “Disciple suspects that it was Master who taught me Alchemy, but at that time I was too young and didn’t remember much, so I didn’t understand Master’s good intentions. Now that I’m doing Pill Refining, I may have stirred up some memories, remembering things I had forgotten in the past, and those voices should be the teachings of Master in my memories.”
In any case, his 'master' wasn’t in Profound Pill Sect, so Yang Kai had already decided to push everything onto him.
Baili Yunsang slowly shook his head, “Although that master of yours is also a heaven-gifted genius, no matter what, he can’t achieve such a feat. This matter should have nothing to do with him!”
Yang Kai was stunned, “Why is Sect Master so certain?”
If this had nothing to do with that 'master' of his, he really couldn’t find a suitable reason.
Baili Yunsang didn’t want to dwell on this topic, so he waved his hand and said, “You don’t need to ask too much. In any case, this matter has nothing to do with him. The strange sound you heard… this Sect Master knows what it is.”
Yang Kai was shocked, wondering how he knew what it was.
Yu Boyang said solemnly, “Sect Master is suspicious…”
Baili Yunsang replied, “Other than that, it’s impossible.”
Great Elder Wu Fenghua stroked his beard and nodded slightly, “This makes sense, but why?”
“This is the will of the Heavens,” Baili Yunsang sighed lightly before turning to Yang Kai and asking, “Do you want to see the owner of that voice?”
“Sect Master!” Wu Fenghua and Yu Boyang were both shocked.
Baili Yunsang said, “Since he can even hear the voice of that thing, it means that he is connected to it by fate. If he can come into contact with it, perhaps he will be able to discover more.”
Wu Fenghua pondered for a moment before nodding, “Sect Master is right.”
Yu Boyang looked at Yang Kai with a complicated expression, “Boy, your luck is quite good, this is a blessing many people can’t even cultivate for several lifetimes.”
Yang Kai was confused, “Sect Master, that voice… does it really exist?”
Baili Yunsang couldn’t help laughing, “You heard it yourself, yet you still ask me?”
Yang Kai didn’t know what to say. Originally, he had wanted to push all the blame onto his 'Master', but who would have thought that he would accidentally bring up something so incredible? Now that things had come to this, it was impossible to stop halfway, so he could only nod and say, “I will follow Sect Master’s arrangements!”
Baili Yunsang nodded happily, “I’m not busy today, you can rest for the night and I’ll send someone to pick you up tomorrow. Also, I have some things to ask you.”
“Sect Master, please speak.”
Baili Yunsang asked, “Where did the Pill Fire you used for Pill Refining come from?”
Yang Kai replied, “Disciple obtained it from the Holy Fire Cave a few months ago, but Disciple doesn’t know what kind of Pill Fire it is. Does Sect Master know about it?”
Baili Yunsang revealed a look of understanding. When he first saw the white fire, he had already made a guess, but now it was just a confirmation. After organizing his thoughts, he said, “Perhaps it’s the kind of Pill Fire I know, but whether it’s real or not, I still need to verify it.”
Saying so, he ordered Yang Kai, “Activate your Pill Fire.”
Hearing this, Yang Kai immediately activated his Pill Fire and a white fire appeared in his palm, looking extremely gentle.
Baili Yunsang stared at the white fire and slowly stretched out his hand towards Yang Kai. At the same time, a golden flame suddenly appeared on his hand and pulsed.
This golden flame was extremely pure and hot, obviously a Spirit Rank Pill Fire. Compared to the white fire in Yang Kai’s hand, it was far superior.
However, as it got closer, the golden Pill Fire suddenly swayed, while the white fire in Yang Kai’s hand remained motionless. This situation became more obvious as the distance between them grew closer.
A moment later, the golden fire shrank uncontrollably and retreated to Baili Yunsang’s wrist, as if it had gained sentience and sensed great danger.
Baili Yunsang withdrew his Pill Fire and let out a light sigh, “It really is this!”
Wu Fenghua and Yu Boyang both stared at Yang Kai with complicated expressions, obviously understanding what they had just seen.
“Withdraw it!” Baili Yunsang ordered.
Only then did Yang Kai withdraw his Pill Fire and humbly ask, “Sect Master, what exactly is this White Fire? Disciple had previously looked it up in Ancient Book Pavilion but was unable to find any related records.”
