Grasping Evil - 6
Jade Royal Grass, For the Pigs to Eat?
Seeing Ning Fan’s calm attitude, the black guard slightly changed his expression.
Being able to confront the four hundred black guards without fear... Even though the young lord’s cultivation was not high, this was already extraordinary.
“Zhousi, go easy on him, do not injure the young lord.”
Commander Yuchi secretly nodded his head and told the big man who was going to fight Ning Fan.
He didn’t think Ning Fan could defeat Zhousi, but he still acknowledged Ning Fan’s status as the young lord.
Daring to accept the challenge... At the very least, he was not a piece of trash, so he was qualified to be their young lord.
“Be at ease, Commander! This subordinate understands the proper limit.”
The big man named Zhousi laughed and slightly waved his hand. Immediately, there was a red light that appeared out of nowhere and deafeningly broke free from the sky and flew towards Ning Fan.
Between the vague gaps, Ning Fan could see that it was a blazing magical pearl, and its heatwave was directly assaulting his senses with the greatest power. If it connected, at the very least, his bones and muscles would snap apart.
“It is the Scarlet Blazing Pearl! Zhousi actually used this item!”
“This pearl can even allow for Zhousi to defeat a sixth level Vein Opening expert. Young Lord is only a new Vein Opening cultivator, how could he block the attack of this pearl?!”
“I’m afraid Young Lord won’t be able to brace this impact!”
The comments in all directions were overwhelmingly on Zhousi’s side, but Ning Fan ignored them.
Of course, his first level Vein Opening cultivation couldn’t receive this level of attack from the magical treasure, but he still had a hidden trump card — the evil flame that he swallowed from Old Monster Han that day.
Nevertheless, this was Ning Fan’s first time participating in a battle. However, since he possessed the Immortal Emperor’s memories, his actions were not too sluggish.
As the blazing pearl was on the way to attack him, Ning Fan directly spewed out an evil flame from his mouth. Once this evil fire left his body, it immediately turned into an unruly dragon and immediately swallowed the Scarlet Blazing Pearl!
The magical pearl immediately split open, and it was rendered into ashes at the very next moment by the evil fire.
Extremely surprised after his magical treasure was destroyed, Zhousi looked up and saw the terrifying and evil fiery dragon directly rush itself towards him.
“Death! I will die!”
Even a tenth level Vein Opening expert would immediately die if they stood in the way of this evil fiery dragon.
Commander Yuchi saw the sudden change and explosively rushed out directly in front of Zhousi with a serious expression. Then, he met the dragon with his resolute fists, creating an explosion.
“Boom! Boom! Boom!”
The evil flame scattered in all directions and exploded everywhere. Commander Yuchi retreated twelve steps back while coughing out blood along the way.
He, as a Harmonious Spirit realm expert, was able to block Ning Fan’s attack, but he also suffered a heavy injury.
The heart of each and every member of the Apricot Guard was overwhelmed with incomparable shock. Zhousi had cold sweat all over his body.
If the commander didn’t stop the strike, he would have died in the hands of the young lord! The young lord was not only powerful, but he was also ferocious; he didn’t show the least bit of mercy!
He was actually the first one to dim-wittedly challenged the young lord — how stupid was this!
This was what the young lord said they were missing. Showing no mercy for the enemies — the style that they should have!
The scene became quiet. Every single black guard looked at Ning Fan with an unprecedented gaze of eminence, not daring to be the least bit disrespectful.
Power was the true speech of the cultivation world, and Ning Fan’s strength had won over their respect.
Ning Fan’s ruthlessness was to be feared. One shot to kill — this was truly an evil cultivator, ah!
They actually misunderstood Ning Fan. It was not that Ning Fan was ruthless from the start and wanted to kill with one move, but rather, it was because he only had the evil flame as his one and only type of method, nothing more. There was not any other magical power that he could have employed.
The old monster saw everything with his eyes! If he was not mistaken, then his evil fire was taken away from him by Ning Fan?
‘Oh grandmother! To go as far as having a method to control his fire, this meant that under the Harmonious Spirit realm, Ning Fan wouldn’t be able to find a suitable opponent!’
‘Hmph! Even daring to rob his master’s evil flame! However, this was truly brave! This old man likes it!’
As a result, the old monster’s opinion of Ning Fan became even more satisfactory. He wanted to have two cups to drink, so he stealthily sneaked away. Ning Fan was the only one waiting outside of the Apricot Mansion to fetch the medicine.
“Young Lord came to take the medicinal grass?”
Yuchi respectfully inquired without a trace of a Harmonious Spirit realm expert’s air of arrogance. Although he was heavily injured, his physique was sturdy so he was not anxious to heal and wanted to take Ning Fan through the Apricot Mansion instead.
Ning Fan did not say that the medicine was for the old monster.
“In that case, Young Lord and Young Mistress, please follow this subordinate to the Apricot Mansion.”
Yuchi respectfully referring to her as the young mistress caused Zhihe’s face to blush red.
The Apricot Mansion was made from fiery bricks. Such a creation was not possible in the hands of Harmonious Spirit realm experts, so the old monster clearly spent some money here.
Yuchi led Ning Fan and Zhihe through the fiery door and into the Apricot Mansion.
Seeing the door filled with fire, Zhihe became afraid. Her fingers intertwined together and she didn’t dare to enter. However, under Ning Fan’s protection, she gradually felt safe.
Ning Fan’s gaze slightly became lost in contemplation. He was already a cultivator, but Zhihe was only a mortal. This will not do.
It was vital to find suitable spirit grass to assist Zhihe to open her veins so that she could become a cultivator as well.
“Young Lord, look. The Apricot Mansion has four thousand different medicines, all of them are several hundred years old. You may directly grab any of them.”
Yuchi thought that although Ning Fan was inexperienced as a cultivator and even though he was powerful, he may not know much about medicine.
However, he didn’t think that when Ning Fan was in the Apricot Mansion, he knew all of the medicines, and even some of the rarer species at that. This greatly startled Yuchi.
“One hundred year old Mulberry Grass, one hundred year old Yulan Magnolia Ice, one hundred year old Snow Ginseng, one hundred year old Sifting Serpent Vine… Hmm, the ingredients for the antidote for master are all here except for the one thousand year old peach tree. Eh, this is…”
Ning Fan’s gaze swept through the medicine courtyard and landed on a haystack in the corner, and he was shocked for a long time.
“What medicine is this…”
He hesitantly asked Yuchi.
“Oh, those are just wild grass without any spirits. They are for feeding the pigs.”
Yuchi casually replied.
“Feed the pigs, ah! You used jade… to feed the pigs!”
“Yes sir! This grass doesn’t taste very good, even the pigs don’t like them…”
Yuchi patted a bag that was on his waist to call out a purple pig around the size of a hand so that Ning Fan could see.
“Young Lord, this is my demon pet — Galaxy Pig. Don’t look at his ugly appearance, even an expert of the fourth level of Vein Opening would be killed by one slam from it. Aizzz, I always feed it this grass each day, but it doesn’t seem to be nutritious enough…”
Ning Fan was quiet for a long time and looked at Yuchi with a complex glance.
“Yuchi, you are one and only in this world! From today on, no more feeding the pig with this grass. Bring this grass to my palace!”
Ning Fan couldn’t imagine that the renowned Jade Royal Grass in the memories of the Immortal Emperor would be fed to the pig by Yuchi.
This grass appeared to be without spirit, but this was its magical property. Think about it, how could a mortal wild grass grow in the icy city!
Jade Royal Grass was said to be hard to obtain for even Immortal Emperors. It doesn’t have any medicinal property by itself, but if mixed with a certain something, then it could become a heaven rebelling godly dan — the Jade Royal Dan.
This dan could refine the veins and marrows to improve the physique as well as cultivation to finally culminate into the “Transcending Immortal Physique”!
In the memories of the Ancient Chaos Grand Emperor, during the Immemorial Era, only two people successfully cultivated the “Transcending Immortal Physique”. Both of them were top geniuses of an era!
One was the old master of the Heaven’s Palace — Jade Emperor, and the other was the holy Saint Wei — Wei Tuo.
“By cultivating the Transcending Immortal Physique, there is no fear to surpass the five gates.”
This phrase was uttered by the immortal saint, Wei Tuo, in the legends, the strongest expert under the Lord Emperor!
The Jade Royal Grass that was even rare for Immortal Emperors were fed to the pigs by Yuchi!
Ning Fan coldly stared at Yuchi. Wasting a heaven’s treasure like this, maybe Yuchi — in his next life — will be punished by the old heaven and turned into a pig.
Being stared at by Ning Fan, Yuchi was confused and quickly averted his eyes.
“Isn’t it just a bunch of lousy grass? What is wrong with feeding it to the pigs? Did he need to stare at me like this… Could it be, that the young lord likes to eat grass? He likes eating the grass that even a pig wouldn’t want to eat?”
Yuchi looked at Ning Fan and saw that he was squatting down. He took the dirty grass in the haystack and chewed it in his mouth. Yuchi was marvelled by this act.
“Worthy of being the young lord. The things that even pigs won’t eat, he still can devour. No wonder why he is so strong!”
