MARTIAL PEAK 4532


The talented Heaven Pill Master Yang Kai's cultivation had progressed too quickly and his foundation had become unstable, resulting in his cultivation going berserk with Qi Deviation when he broke through to the Spirit Rank. His temperament had undergone a great change, but the Sect Master and many other Elders had not given up on him and carefully treated him, allowing him to turn the situation around. This was a cause for celebration!


This news quickly spread throughout the entire Profound Pill Sect.


Yesterday’s great battle had caused quite a stir, so the entire Profound Pill Sect had naturally noticed it. However, most people didn’t know what had happened, and only the cultivators who had participated in that battle knew the truth.


However, what they knew wasn’t very clear, and coupled with Yang Kai’s violent and murderous reaction at the time, this explanation didn’t raise too many suspicions.


Yang Kai’s performance at that time really did seem like he was suffering from Qi Deviation.


The battle had calmed down, but the aftermath was a troublesome matter. The only way to resolve this issue was to stabilize the hearts of everyone in Profound Pill Sect, but the cultivators who were injured by Yang Kai needed time to recover.


What gave the upper echelons of Profound Pill Sect the greatest headache was that he had finally proposed to go to the Forbidden Zone and face the wall for ten years.


In the Discussion Hall, the upper echelons of Profound Pill Sect were gathered, from the Sect Master to the Elders, Protectors, and Deacons. The hall was filled with talented people, but the hall was filled with a gloomy atmosphere.


Today’s discussion was naturally about Yang Kai’s ten years facing the wall in the forbidden area.


If it was any other place, it would have been fine, but the key was the location of the Medicine King Cauldron, so the Profound Pill Sect had no choice but to treat it seriously. In the past, they didn’t know about Yang Kai’s background, allowing him to freely enter and exit the Forbidden Area, interact with the Medicine King Cauldron, and comprehend the Great Dao Wonderful Sound. Now that they knew Yang Kai was suspicious, how could they allow him to continue?


However, no one knew how to handle this matter.


Glancing at the silent crowd below, Baili Yunsang knocked on the armrest of his chair and said, “Stop pretending to be mute. Tell me, how should we handle this matter? Great Elder, what do you think?”


Being called out by the Sect Master, Wu Fenghua had no choice but to speak up. After pondering for a moment, he said, “Since he knows how important the Medicine King Cauldron is to my Profound Pill Sect, yet he still wants to make such a request, it can be seen that his intentions aren’t small. If we doesn’t agree, I’m afraid he won’t let this matter rest. With the strength he displayed today, if he really wants to go to that forbidden land, my Profound Pill Sect won’t be able to stop him.”


In Wu Fenghua’s opinion, Yang Kai’s final proposal was not a self-inflicted punishment, but a request, a request to reconcile with the Profound Pill Sect! Only by agreeing to his proposal would there be a possibility of reconciliation. If they didn’t agree, he might have to make a fuss again, and at that time, the situation would be uncertain.


After all, the Profound Pill Sect had captured all of his Void Spirit Sword Sect’s people and brought them to Profound Pill City. On this matter, it was the Profound Pill Sect’s fault, even if they hadn’t harmed anyone from the Void Spirit Sword Sect.


Baili Yunsang frowned and asked, “Does Great Elder mean to agree to his request?”


Wu Fenghua shook his head and said, “This old master didn’t have such intentions, but this old master felt that… Little Junior Brother shouldn’t have acknowledged that 'Master-Disciple' relationship. If he didn’t, none of this would have happened.”


Before Dan Chengzi could say anything, Lan Yin glared at him angrily, “Great Elder, have you thought about what would have happened if Little Junior Brother hadn’t done so?”


Wu Fenghua said, “According to the situation at that time, even if Little Junior Brother hadn’t done so, it wouldn’t have been difficult for him to stop that boy. He still retained a trace of rationality.”


Lan Yin wanted to say more, but Dan Chengzi raised his hand to stop her and looked towards Wu Fenghua, “Indeed, he has always maintained a shred of rationality and didn’t try to kill anyone from my Profound Pill Sect, so in yesterday’s battle, countless people from my Profound Pill Sect were only injured, but none of them died. But even if we were to really stop him, how would we be able to clean up this mess? That boy’s strength is so great that no one from my Profound Pill Sect can resist him, so how could we allow him to leave? He has already comprehended the Medicine King Cauldron’s secrets for several years and has contributed a great deal of pill recipes and pill refining mysteries. If we let him leave just like that, how could Great Elder feel at ease?”


Hearing this, Wu Fenghua thought for a moment before slowly shaking his head.


Just as Dan Chengzi had said, Yang Kai had comprehended so many mysteries of the Medicine King Cauldron, so who would be willing to let him leave so easily?


“If we can’t make him stay, and we can’t let him leave, then I can only use the status of master and disciple to tie him down. Whether this master and disciple are real or not, as long as he calls me Master, the fake will become real.”


Baili Yunsang pondered for a moment before asking, “Little Junior Brother, did you consider this, so you accepted that master-disciple position yesterday?”


Dan Chengzi cupped his fists and said, “This matter was urgent and I didn’t have time to discuss it with Sect Master.”


Baili Yunsang waved his hand, “Your mind has always been nimble, even we can’t compare to you in this regard. You’ve done the right thing. With this layer of master and disciple bonding, I’m sure he will have some concerns in the future, but… this still won’t solve the problem in front of us now.”


Dan Chengzi said, “Sect Master and everyone else’s concern is whether or not he has any ulterior motives towards my Profound Pill Sect, or if he is a spy from some other Sect, prying into the secrets of the Medicine King Cauldron!”


“Exactly,” Baili Yunsang nodded.


Dan Chengzi slowly shook his head, “In my opinion, none of this is a problem.”


Seeing everyone turn to look at him, Dan Chengzi said, “I’ve only returned to Profound Pill Sect for a short time, so my understanding of him is only based on what you’ve told me, but it’s also because of this that I’ve been able to free myself from some constraints. May I ask Sect Master if he has done anything detrimental to the Sect in the past few years?”


“Never.”


“Have you ever seen him interact too intimately with other Sects?”


“Apart from the Void Spirit Sword Sect, I haven’t found anything else. However, the Void Spirit Sword Sect is his birthplace, so it’s understandable that he has a lot of contacts with them.”


“He has already comprehended more than a dozen different pill recipes from the Medicine King Cauldron. If he really had any ulterior motives, he could have just contributed a few of them and hidden more, but I don’t think he did that.”


Baili Yunsang nodded slightly. Over a few years, over a dozen new pill recipes had been created, which was a huge contribution.


“There’s also the battle yesterday. All the disciples were injured but not killed, so it’s obvious he still cares about the Sect. Moreover, if he really was a spy sent by other Sects, how could the people behind him allow him to come here alone? Aren’t they afraid that he would suffer some kind of accident?”


Baili Yunsang pondered for a moment before asking, “According to Junior Brother, he wasn’t ordered to join my Profound Pill Sect by anyone?”


Dan Chengzi shook his head, “Him joining Profound Pill Sect was completely an accident.”


“What do you mean by this remark?” Everyone looked towards him curiously.


Dan Chengzi asked, “Does everyone remember how he joined Profound Pill Sect?”


Yu Boyang thought about it for a moment before saying, “Little Gao once went to Heavenly Martial City and met him, both of them sparring and refining pills. In the end, he used my Profound Pill Sect’s pill recipe to refine a Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill, so Little Gao suspected that his pill recipe was obtained from my Profound Pill Sect. After asking around, he confirmed that it was Little Junior Brother who taught him. If you hadn’t suddenly returned to the Sect a few days ago, we probably wouldn’t have known that this was a scam.”


Dan Chengzi smiled wryly, “I admit that I am more intelligent than others in the Alchemy Dao. In this world, there is no one who can surpass me in Alchemy, but after chatting with that boy last night, I discovered that there is always someone better than you.”


Everyone turned to look at him in surprise. Everyone knew of Dan Chengzi’s arrogance. If not for that, he wouldn’t have run away from home because of his position as Sect Master was given to other. This was the first time they had heard him say such a thing.


Baili Yunsang asked, “Little Junior Brother, what exactly did you discuss with him last night?”


“Discuss the matter of him joining my Profound Pill Sect!” Dan Chengzi let out a long sigh, “After all, he is now my disciple. As his Master, I should naturally pay him some attention.”


Pausing for a moment, Dan Chengzi explained, “Little Gao is right, when he was refining the Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill, he was indeed using my Profound Pill Sect’s pill recipe. I believe that after he joined the Profound Pill Sect, all of my Senior Brothers also verified this point.”


Wu Fenghua nodded and said, “That’s right, we have indeed verified that the pill recipe he used was indeed from my Profound Pill Sect. Because of this, we firmly believed in his background. After all, pill recipes can’t be faked, so we all thought that you had taken in a disciple while you were out traveling.”


“The pill recipe is correct. Little Gao's mistake is that it wasn’t me who taught him the pill recipe, but Little Gao himself.”


Everyone was confused!


Dan Chengzi said, “Little Gao is outside right now. Call him in and ask him about what happened, everyone should know.” Saying so, he lightly clapped his hands.


A moment later, Gao Xinpeng walked in and bowed respectfully.


Dan Chengzi said, “Little Gao, tell me about the Alchemy competition between you and Yang Kai, don’t miss anything.”


Although Gao Xinpeng didn’t know why Dan Chengzi was asking about this, he still told him the truth. Although it had been a few years since then, he still remembered the Alchemy competition very clearly.


As he explained, the scene at that time seemed to replay itself in front of everyone’s eyes. From time to time, Dan Chengzi would ask some critical questions.


A moment later, Gao Xinpeng left in confusion.


A pin drop could be heard in the hall.


After a long time, Yu Boyang swallowed his saliva and said, “Little Gao said that when Yang Kai was refining the Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill, the steps and speed were always a bit slower than him. Could it be… that boy is learning and doing it on the spot?”


A series of gasps rang out as everyone’s eyes flashed with disbelief.


Pill Refining is an extremely intricate task. The condensation of medicinal liquids, the timing of placing the herbs, and the control of one’s Pill Fire all required a great deal of experience and accumulation. Even if an Alchemist obtained a pill recipe, they may not be able to refine it in a short period of time, often requiring countless failures to accumulate enough experience to succeed.


Not to mention learning it on the spot and successfully refining it!


Dan Chengzi said, “I can’t believe it either, but the truth is that last night, I deliberately used a pill recipe I created to test him, and the result was the same as when Little Gao was sparring with him. He was always a step slower than me when it came to Pill Refining, but without any mistakes, he was able to achieve Pill Success!”


The entire upper echelons of Profound Pill Sect were shocked!
