Chapter 520: Noble Imperial Fragrance Pill

Three days later, Xiao Chen, who was lying on the ground, finally woke up.

“Cough…! Cough…!”

Xiao Chen opened his eyes weakly and coughed heavily. He struggled to sit up from the ground.

When Xiao Chen checked his body with his consciousness, he could not help a bitter smile on his pale face.

Although he had released the huge Spiritual Energy through his twenty-four acupoints, the vast remnant Spiritual Energy still caused a lot of damage in his body.

Xiao Chen’s heart, liver, spleen, kidney, large colon, small colon, stomach, and gallbladder…all his internal organs were severely damaged. Every single movement caused him intense pain.

Fortunately, Xiao Chen’s meridians were not severely injured. They had been tempered twice before, by the Dragon and Tiger Body Sculpting Art and the Firmament Body Tempering Art.

Xiao Chen’s meridians were already as resilient as Frost Iron, as hard as Heavenly Mountain Stones, and at the same time, as gentle as autumn water, and very flexible. This combination meant that it was hard for them to receive any true damage.

However, the most disappointing thing was that the Essence in Xiao Chen’s body dried up completely. It had completely drained with nothing remaining. He could not even circulate some Essence to ease the pain.

No matter how intense a battle was, cultivators would always reserve some Essence. This was because they could only cultivate if there was Essence. They needed it to complete the cycles in the meridians to quickly replenish the Essence.

If a cultivator’s Essence ran dry completely, it would be very difficult to recover. Even the most incredible Medicinal Pill would be useless. They could only wait for the dantian to naturally generate a strand of Essence before anything could work.

This time, Xiao Chen had ruined himself. He sighed silently to himself. In the end, he could not be too reckless when cultivating.

Xiao Chen glanced at Leng Yue at the side. She was currently watching the sky calmly, as if she had not noticed Xiao Chen waking up.

“Is the sky nice to look at? I am awake already and you don’t even bother to look at me.”

Leng Yue withdrew her gaze and smiled charmingly, “How could it be? I just did not notice.”

After that, Leng Yue ran over to help Xiao Chen up. He could not stand up by himself; she could clearly feel this when she supported him. She could also see the pained expression on his face.

“Now that you are so severely injured, this experiential training will probably come to an end.”

Xiao Chen smiled when he heard this. He let go of Leng Yue’s hand and said, “End? You underestimate me. I can still afford the expenditure for this small bit of internal injuries. Don’t bother thinking of any tricks.”

Leng Yue grumbled in her heart. She was only showing concern for Xiao Chen, but he did not understand anything.

After half a day, Xiao Chen recovered his basic ability to move about. Then, Leng Yue finally understood what Xiao Chen meant by being able to afford the expenditure.

Xiao Chen spent 300,000 Medial Grade Spirit Stones to buy a bottle of Rank 9 treatment medication—the Noble Imperial Fragrance Pill. It dealt specially with internal injuries and had the best effect for his condition.

The shop was operated by the Divine Dragon Palace’s subordinate merchant association. Cultivators were bound to get injured during experiential training. Hence, their business was booming and they had all sorts of herbs and medicines.

Buying the treatment medication was insufficient. Xiao Chen spent another 400,000 Medial Grade Spirit Stones to buy a two-thousand-year-old Life Blood Mushroom for replenishing blood essence.

That day, Xiao Chen had vomited several mouthfuls of blood. Furthermore, it was not ordinary blood he vomited but blood essence.

When blood essence flourished, a person would be strong and energetic. They would also be in high spirits and feel like they could do anything. When blood essence was insufficient, their aura would be weak, their skin would be yellow, and they would become dispirited and feel lethargic.

Thus, Xiao Chen had to replenish his blood essence. Furthermore, he had to replenish a lot of it; he had to replenish it all within a short period of time. So, he was willing to spend the Spirit Stones.

After the Life Blood Mushroom, Xiao Chen spent another 300,000 Medial Grade Spirit Stones to buy a few more two-thousand-year-old Spirit Herbs with similar effects.

Even so, Xiao Chen felt his supplies were still insufficient. So he bought a few thousand-year-old Sea Cucumbers. This was a special produce of the Boundless Sea that worked very well for supporting the recovery of internal injuries. It would also enhance the effect of the Noble Imperial Fragrance Pill when consumed together.

When Xiao Chen left the shop, the owner of the shop escorted him out with smiles on his face. He looked very excited.

The owner could not help his excitement. Xiao Chen spent a total of one million Medial Grade Spirit Stones in one go. That was equal to one month’s worth of sales.

Originally, with Xiao Chen’s strong physical body, he would only need some supplemental Spirit Herbs. Although his injuries were severe, he would be able to recover in a month.

However, Xiao Chen lacked time. One month meant thirty days; he could not afford to waste that time. Furthermore, he had the feeling that something big was going to happen in a few days.

Thus, Xiao Chen had to heal all his injuries in three days. So, he could only use Spirit Stones to buy time. No matter how great the price was, he had to spend it.

Leng Yue, who was beside him, wore a pink dress and a loose black-and-white robe, which hid her tail, as well as a face veil.

This way, no one would be able to figure out her identity as an Eros Demon. This was an idea Leng Yue thought of in the past few days. This meant that she would not need to hide in the Spirit Blood Jade.

When the two returned to a newly rented courtyard, Leng Yue clicked her tongue as she said, “Young Master Xiao, I could not tell that you were this rich. No wonder you said that this was a little injury. Though I wonder, how many times can you do this? The Spirit Gathering Pearl is not that easy to absorb.”

Xiao Chen’s expression changed a little when he looked at Leng Yue. “You seem to have more to say.”

Leng Yue smiled embarrassedly and nodded. “That’s right. I know a way that will allow you to absorb the Spirit Gathering Pearls in a normal manner. However, you have to agree to a few of my conditions.”

Xiao Chen shook his head slightly and did not say anything. Then, he walked towards his room.

Xiao Chen did not intend to use the Spirit Gathering Pearl for the moment. Like the white-haired old man had said, that thing could only be used when making breakthroughs while he was a Martial King.

Xiao Chen had oversimplified the problem. It was not about whether the dantian could contain the Spiritual Energy. Instead, it was about whether the dantian could withstand the surging force that would suddenly gush in.

The dantian’s endurance was at its best when one was about to make a breakthrough. At that moment, the dantian required a strong force to help break the bottleneck.

A so-called bottleneck referred to when a cultivator could not make a breakthrough no matter how much force he used.

Only at this special moment could the dantian endure the rush of spiritual liquid from the Spirit Gathering Pearl. The stronger the force, the better.

However, this moment was very dangerous as well. If one failed, there was a ninety percent chance of death. Not many people would dare use the Spirit Gathering Pearl this way. The price of failure was too high.

Xiao Chen did not believe that Leng Yue had the means to use something so dangerous. Furthermore, the Demons were very cunning. How could he believe her completely? He did not want to experience the ordeal again.

When Leng Yue saw Xiao Chen leaving without looking back, she thought that it was because he felt that there were too many conditions. She quickly said, “There is no need for a few conditions; three would do.

“Alright, two! Just two conditions!

“Don’t go! Fine! One! Just one! That should be fine now, right? I will tell you have to use the Spirit Gathering Pearl; you just have to fulfill one of my conditions.”

Leng Yue chased after Xiao Chen quickly, panting as she ran. Her face blushed under her face veil.

Xiao Chen turned back and looked at Leng Yue suspiciously. “You really know how to use the Spirit Gathering Pearl correctly?”

Seeing that Xiao Chen was underestimating her, Leng Yue was unhappy as she replied, “Of course I know it. I also know how to deal with the Corpse Demon Fish and Witch Fiends. I was about to tell you at that time but you refused to let me out.

“Had you asked me about it in advance, you would not have become so miserable this time.” Then, she thought to herself, I even chased away a huge spot of trouble for you.

Xiao Chen nodded and said, “Alright, I’ll believe you. Tell me your condition.”

Condition…condition…what should I asked for? Leng Yue thought anxiously. The condition cannot be too easy, or else he will know that I am helping him on purpose.

It cannot be too difficult, either. If he cannot do it, he will definitely reject it.

Damn it! Why is this fellow so straightforward? It is so difficult for me to think of a condition.

Xiao Chen watched Leng Yue and found her demeanor strange. She had her head lowered and her fist clenched. He could not tell what she was thinking.

After a while, Leng Yue looked up and said in a depressed manner, “I have not thought of it yet. What should I do?”

Xiao Chen was slightly stunned but he did not mind. He just treated it as Leng Yue trying to maximize her benefits. “There is no rush. You can think for three days. That is how long it would take me to heal from my wounds.”

When Xiao Chen reached his room, he took out the Spirit Herbs and Medicinal Pills he bought from the shop and laid them on the table.

Then, he sorted them into two categories. One was for replenishing blood essence and the other for treating internal injuries. He could not take both at the same time. He had to follow a certain order: first, treat his internal injuries; then, deal with his blood essence.

Otherwise, if Xiao Chen tried to forcibly replenish his blood essence while severely injured, his body would not be able to withstand the flourishing aura and it would suffer further injuries.

When Xiao Chen looked at the table covered with Spirit Herbs and Medicinal Pills, he felt an headache. One million Medial Grade Spirit Stones were not easy to earn.

Now, Xiao Chen had only 1,700,000 Medial Grade Spirit Stones left. He needed to reserve at least 700,000 for his cultivation. So all he had left to spend was a million Medial Grade Spirit Stones.

Xiao Chen took a deep breath and picked up the Noble Imperial Fragrance Pill. He opened the bottle and a dragon-shaped cloud of fragrance came out.

Xiao Chen sniffed it and the dragon-shaped fragrance split into two and entered his nostrils. Then, it moved about in his chest, turning into a liquid that permeated his internal organs. His pain immediately eased.

“It truly lives up to its name as a Rank 9 Medicinal Pill. Just the fragrance alone has therapeutic effects. It is worthy of the title Holy Medicine.”

Xiao Chen revealed a joyful smile. At first, he had many doubts about these Medicinal Pills. He had been very worried that he would not recover within three days. From the looks of things, that no longer seemed to be a problem.

Without further hesitation, Xiao Chen took out the contents of the bottle and ate them together with the thousand-year-old Sea Cucumber. He instantly felt very sleepy and drifted off.

During the night, the Medicinal Pill seeped into Xiao Chen’s internal organs, quickly healing the injuries as he slept soundly.

The next day, Xiao Chen opened his eyes and stretched himself. He was surprised to discover that he was already mostly recovered.

“Spending one million Medial Grade Spirit Stones is worth it!” Xiao Chen felt very happy, his dispirited and depressed mood instantly vanishing.
