“Who’s there?” Feng Tianlan asked coldly as she sank her subconscious into the Cinnabar field for a second time.
“Pill Scroll Azurite.”
As the voice fell, Feng Tianlan saw a pure white jade scroll rise from her gem-like Cinnabar field. The scroll unrolled itself and engulfed her consciousness in a white brilliance. Her consciousness was pulled deeper into a world of white, brimming with Spiritual Qi.
“Greetings, Master. My name is Azurite.”
Feng Tianlan gazed at the elegant lady in front of her. She was as light as a holy feather and exuded a slight medicinal fragrance. Feng Tianlan frowned slightly and asked, “Who are you? Where is this?”
“I was an ordinary Azurite Pill Scroll a thousand years ago, blessed to receive the nurturing of the Seven Spiritual Pearls. A thousand years of nurturing endowed me with human form and intelligence. You are currently standing in the Pill Scroll Realm.”
Azurite half kneeled as she elaborated her functions in detail. Initially, she had been a Pill Scroll containing all the Pill Recipes in the world. Upon gaining a form during the thousand-year nurture of the Seven Spiritual Pearls, the Pill Scroll Realm had become a perfect world for cultivation. In this world, time almost stood still. A day in the Pill Scroll Realm was equivalent to two hours in the real world. It was a marvelous place to cultivate and refine medicine.
There were, of course, limitations. As a First-stage Spiritualist, Feng Tianlan was only strong enough to read the first page of the Scroll and stay in the Realm for a day, at most. If she became too greedy or weak, the Realm would consume her and take her life. But, as she grew stronger, she would gain more and more authority. For example, the Scroll would automatically turn to the correct page whenever she thought of a recipe she needed. She could also plant herbs in the Pill Scroll Realm.
Feng Tianlan’s eyes sparkled at Azurite’s explanation. The Azurite Pill Scroll was indeed a legendary artifact. Even with its limitations, it was a unique item, which she needed. She didn’t mind the restrictions so long as this artifact now belonged to her.
“It seems that you have resided in this body since the very beginning. Why would you choose now to appear and acknowledge me as your master?” Feng Tianlan quickly regained her cool after the thrill.
“That’s because the Master has returned.”
Azurite disappeared soon after. Feng Tianlan’s consciousness was forced to eject from the Pill Scroll Realm. She woke up.
Feng Tianlan opened her eyes and looked out the window. The sun was almost up. She thought of Azurite’s words and found a Pill Recipe in her mind. It contained three different methods of pill refinement and their respective ingredient lists. The first recipe was for the Nurturing Pill, followed by the Spirit Boosting Pill and the Marrow Cleansing Pill.
She’d just received a Nurturing Pill from Si Mobai. The Spirit Boosting Pill could be used to stabilize Spiritual Qi and speed up cultivation. The Marrow Cleansing Pill could make a good-for-nothing who could never cultivate before into a Spiritual Master. Give a good-for-nothing a Grade 1 Marrow Cleansing Pill, and you’ll see him turn the tides and become a cultivation genius.
Nurturing Pills were still quite common on the Guiyuan Continent, but the Spirit Boosting Pill and the Marrow Cleansing Pill were considered priceless. Even the lowest quality—Grade 9—was hard to come by. However, to Azurite, these were but the most basic of all Pill Recipes. One could only be astounded by her wealth!
Feng Tianlan took a look at Chuling, who was still unconscious. She smiled slightly. She must become stronger, and she needs her own power faction. Therefore, the Spirit Boosting Pill and the Marrow Cleansing Pill were just what she needed. She also required a lot of money, and pill-making had always been a lucrative business.
Feng Tianlan was awakened by Chuling’s soft groaning. When she opened her eyes, she saw Chuling trying to get out of the bed. She quickly got up, took her by the arm, and said, “Don’t move. Just tell me what you need, I’ll get it for you.”
“How are you, Miss? You’re not hurt, are you?” Chuling looked worriedly at Feng Tianlan. Just thinking about what Feng Xiang had done to Feng Tianlan the night before, she paled, and her expression became even more frightened.
