Wang Hai was staggered by the pull, his knee hurting on the ground, and he was about to exclaim when Chen Jiancheng whispered, “Don’t talk, look below.”
Hearing this, Wang Hai quickly looked down. Here was a mountain cliff, and below the cliff was a secluded valley.
At this time, a young figure was refining pill in the valley.
As the cover of the pill cauldron buzzed and vibrated, a strong fragrance of elixir spread out. The 2 people on top of the cliff could even smell it.
Obviously, this batch of medicinal pills was about to be refined, and it was even a perfect batch of medicinal pills.
Wang Hai looked at the boy intently, and his eyes widened as he blurted out, “Xi Yue?!”
It turned out that the young man who was refining medicinal pills in this valley was Hexi who had been away from their team for several days.
Wang Hai looked at Hexi up and down, only to see her neat clothes and a calm look. Even during the pill refining, her spiritual power wasn’t blocked at all.
He gritted his teeth. This kid is only at the Foundation Establishment Stage, and he is alone, how can he be so leisurely? This is totally different from our embarrassing state.
At this moment, medicinal pills were successfully refined.
Wang Hai and Chen Jiancheng probed their heads and looked in the direction of the pill cauldron.
With just this look, Wang Hai couldn’t help opening his mouth wide. He said in a trembling voice, “How… how come there are so many?”
Generally, a batch of medicinal pills could have more than 10 or 12 pills, and the academy gave a low grade pill cauldron. It was very good if 5 to 6 pills could be refined in a cauldron.
However, a batch of medicinal pills refined by Xi Yue had a total of 40 pills.
Didn’t they say that low grade pill cauldron isn’t good in refining pills? Didn’t they say that we can’t use spiritual power in the [Illusive Forest]? Didn’t they say that the Foundation Establishment Stage’s pill refiner cannot purify the impurities in the spiritual fire even if he has subdued the spiritual fire??
How… how did this guy do it?!
Chen Jiancheng’s facial muscles twitched. He glared at Wang Hai and said coldly, “Shut up! Be quiet, do you want Xi Yue to find out?”
If Wang Hai was just shocked and jealous, then Chen Jiancheng was going crazy with jealousy.
At this time, his killing intent toward Xi Yue was even stronger than ever.
Wang Hai swallowed and said in a low voice, “Why don’t we go down now and ask him for medicinal pills. He is still in the sixth team, we are not good for him if we die…”
Chen Jiancheng was silent when he heard the words, and he pulled Wang Hai back several steps.
Until Chen Jiancheng confirmed that Xi Yue didn’t notice them, he sneered and said, “Wang Hai, do you want to snatch all the medicinal pills from Xi Yue?”
“Of course I want, but…”
“No but!” Chen Jiancheng squinted, lowered his voice, and leaned close to Wang Hai’s ear. “Xi Yue is only at the Foundation Establishment stage. As long as we kill him, the medicinal pills and the spiritual plant we found will be ours.”
For pill refining, a spiritual plant was definitely needed. The medicinal pills refined by Hexi were so mellow and rich in aroma, the spiritual plant found must be of very high rank.
As long as these spiritual plants could be obtained, their scores in this assessment would definitely be very high.
But Wang Hai was shocked when he heard this, almost loudly saying, “How can this be? Isn’t this forbidden in the trial…”
Chen Jiancheng covered Wang Hai’s mouth and cursed in his mind.
But the expression and tone on his face were exceptionally gentle. He continued to whisper in his ear, “I know that the academy prohibits killing each other in the same team, but I have a way.”
