Chapter 145: I Can Do Nothing For Detoxifying
Luo BaiChuan’s last sentence made all the cultivators show an excited face with expectation. Because most of them, to be honest, had been waiting for it.
As for Jiang Yun, as early as he was in the South Star city, had already inquired about the Grand Medicine Sect information. he knew that they came not only for Luo’s birthday celebration, but also for recruiting several disciples.
But it was none of his business. He had no interest in becoming a disciple of the Grand Medicine Sect, because he already had a master.
In his life, he would only have Gu BuLao as his master, the only one. He was absolutely impossible to transfer to other sects.
At this time, many cultivators were leaving for their residences; and when they passed by Jiang Yun, most of them would nodded to him as a greeting.
Many people even had already been considering to visit Seeking-Tao Sect after leaving Luo’s house. They planned to draw a closer relationship with Seeking-Tao Sect.
Regardless of the current strength of Seeking-Tao Sect, since it had such a genius disciple, it was not difficult for it to carry forward itself in the future.
For everyone’s polite greeting, Jiang Yun naturally gave them polite response. But at the same time, he was thinking of how to grease some wheels with Xiao Zheng.
Unexpectedly, not waiting for him to come for Xiao Zheng, Xiao Zheng had already walked in front of him. He cupped his hand and asked, “Thank you, Tao friend Jiang. Would you like to visit my residence for a while?”
Seeing Xiao Zheng’s attitude towards Jiang Yun and his initiative invitation, the cultivators around who had not left yet were a little envious.
Of course, Jiang Yun was extremely happy. He hurriedly nodded, “That would be great!”
Xiao Zheng smiled slightly, and suddenly pointed at Xie XiaoYong who was always behind him. “This is my Younger Sister Xie XiaoYong. She is close to your age. Maybe you can become friends later!”
Hearing this, everyone was not only envious, but a little more jealous, especially those male cultivators who were in similar age to Xie XiaoYong.
Xie XiaoYong not only had a good look, she was also a disciple of Grand Medicine Sect and a Second Class pharmacist. With so many backgrounds, she had already caused the attention of these cultivators.
If it was not because of the cold face of Xiao Zheng who had always been standing next to Xie XiaoYong, these people must have found various opportunities to approach Xie XiaoYong.
However, they did not expect that now Xiao Zheng would take the initiative to introduce Xie XiaoYong to Jiang Yun. What was more, Xie XiaoYong lowered her head and said nothing but her face had turned red. Obviously, she was interested in Jiang Yun and hence became a little shy. Seeing this, everyone was going crazy.
However, Jiang Yun did not think too much at all. He greeted politely to Xie XiaoYong as well, “Nice to meet you, Master Xie.”
Xie XiaoYong hurriedly responded, “Nice to meet you too, Tao friend Jiang. Don’t call me Master, I’m still not enough to be titled!”
“Ha ha!” Xiao Zheng laughed and said, “Alright, Tao friend Jiang. We will have enough time to chat in my room. Let’s go!”
Looking at them leaving, other cultivators were extremely jealous, while Luo’s people were much more embarrassed and angry.
Luo family naturally wanted to draw their relationship with these three pharmacists, and that’s why they let Luo LingXiao personally accompany them.
Unfortunately, their wishful thinking didn’t come true.
Moreover, Luo LingXiao had no hopeful future. Furthermore, Xiao Zheng and Xie XiaoYong seemed to be like getting close to Jiang Yun. All these things made them very unhappy.
But even if they were angry, they could only force themselves to hold up their emotions. Because they would not dare to offend Grand Medicine Sect!
The Grand Medicine Sect had only a few martial cultivators because most of them were pharmacists, due to which their overall strength was not so strong. But they could only use one words to mobilize almost all the pharmacists within the Mountain-Sea Continent.
Once, there had been a middle-class sect that offended a pharmacist of Grand Medicine Sect. The Grand Medicine Sect therefore asked pharmacists not to service the sect. Since then, no pharmacist had refined Dan pills for it.
Even if it wanted to buy some, no one dared to sell one pill.
As a result, what was waiting for the sect could only be a death as they had no way to get one pill.
This was the power of the Grand Medicine Sect; it could destroy a sect without bloodshed at all!
When Jiang Yun, Xiao Zheng and Xie XiaoYong came to Xiao Zheng’s residence, they had a short chat. Then, Xiao Zheng suddenly took out a jade bottle and handed it to Jiang Yun, “Tao friend Jiang, thank you for helping me to give a lesson to my Younger Brother. I have nothing to give you as a thank-you gift but a Spiritual-Energy Dan of man level which was refined by myself. It’s just a small gift, please take it.”
The Spiritual-Energy Dan pill was in the Third Grade. It had a similar medicinal effect to that of an Inhalation Pill, but the amount of Spiritual Energy it could draw was greatly larger than that of an Inhalation Pill. Not to mention a man-level Spiritual-Energy Dan; it could be sold at a price of ten thousand pieces of Spiritual Stones at least.
The Grand Medicine Sect was really rich; Dan pills that they sent out casually were very invaluable in the eyes of other cultivators.
However, Jiang Yun did not take a glance at the jade bottle at all. He waved his hand, “It’s just a matter to lift a finger. You don’t need to be so grateful for it. Besides, I let Master Liu lose his face. I am really very embarrassed to take this gift.”
Xiao Zheng said seriously, “That can only blame Liu Hao for not being good at cultivation. It’s not your matter. Tao friend Jiang, please do take this Spiritual-Energy Dan, or else I would say you look down on me!”
Jiang Yun still didn’t take it. He hesitatingly said, “To be honest, Master Xiao, I have something to ask for.”
“My Third Brother has gotten poisoned nearly a year ago; and according to my master, this poison could only be detoxified by the Grand Medicine Sect.”
Xiao Zhen showed an interest, “What kind of poison is that?”
Jiang Yun did not answer but took out a jade bottle from his storage ring and handed it to Xiao Zheng. “This is a drop of blood from my Third Brother. Please have a look, Master Xiao. But do be careful. It’s highly toxic.”
Xiao Zheng took over the jade bottle and carefully opened the cork. Then a colorful smoke came out from the bottle suddenly.
Xiao Zheng inhaled a little incautiously, and his face changed suddenly. He hurriedly covered the cork, took out a Dan pill and took it in. Then he returned the jade bottle to Jiang Yun and said, “What a highly toxic poison! Sorry, Tao friend Jiang. I can do nothing for detoxifying this poison.”
After a pause, Xiao Zheng continued saying, “This poison… perhaps only my master can detoxify it!”
In fact, Jiang Yun had guessed that Xiao Zheng may not be able to detoxify it. He was about to ask if Xiao Zheng could do him a favor and ask his master for help, but Xiao Zheng had already said in a hurry, “My sect has rules that disciples who are travelling outside cannot seek for help unless themselves get poisoned or they have encountered an accident. Otherwise, no one is allowed to seek the sect for help, let alone bringing outsiders to the sect.”
Jiang Yun frowned, “Is there really no way? Is it possible for me to see your master, even just once?!”
“There is a way!”
“What is the solution?” Jiang Yun stood up and bowed deeply, “I can do anything as long as my Third Brother can get detoxified!”
Xiao Zheng smiled a little bitter, “If you pass our following test and become a disciple of Grand Medicine Sect, then I can introduce you to my master and ask for his help.”
“This way…” Jiang Yun shook his head and said, “Master Xiao, is there any other way?”
After being silent for a while, Xiao Jing said, “Unless you can show a higher refining talent than me, then since I am not qualified to accept you as a disciple, I need to bring you to the sect and see my master!!”
