Chapter 77: Laughter
It’s obviously not deliberately supple, but when people hear her, they can feel a numbness on their scalp to their bones.
The young woman’s voice is actually ten times more pleasant than Gong Qianxue’s.
Everyone’s eyes are drawn to private room number 1.
They think that the girl from room one would also come out like Gong Qianxue did, and let them see a beauty.
Therefore, each and every one of them are anticipating with stretched necks.
But after waiting for quite a long time, the person inside shows no intention of going out.
Ru Yan comes back to herself and apologetically says, “I’m sorry, this guest. It is Ru Yan’s negligence. Pardon me, will you put forward an Elixir comparable to the Restoration Pill?”
Behind the hanging curtain, Muyan still drawls, as if she’s indifferent, “I don’t have an Elixir. What about a draught?”
After this statement, a brief silence comes over the Beast Fighting Colosseum, then they all burst into laughter.
“Hahaha, a draught? She actually mentions a draught on equal terms with an Elixir, is she silly?”
“I don’t know from what nook this country bumpkin had emerged from that she doesn’t know how high is the sky and how wide is the earth.”
“Don’t even talk about a rank three Elixir refined by Master Jian Feng, even the most common rank one Elixir is more precious than most draughts. To compare a draught with an Elixir, hearing it is really the best joke I’ve encountered, haha…”
Listening to everyone’s ridicule and laughter, Gong Qianxue’s reveals a complacent and sardonic smile.
On the high platform, Ru Yan shows and embarrassed expression, “Noble guest, a draught simply can’t compare with the value of an Elixir. Even if you add the original 4 million gold coins, it’s still very insufficient.”
“Oh, is that so?” like before, Muyan’s voice is neither fast nor slow, but her next words are like a sudden clap of thunder in the Beast Fighting Colosseum, “And if I say that this draught that I offer, can assist martial practitioners of Heaven Stage and below to break through a bottleneck?”
Muyan hasn’t been a Shen Musician for long.
Refining an Elixir is complex. She also has no previous foundation, and she still didn’t have time to properly study.
But she’s already very skilled with draughts, so while they were hurrying on the road this past few days, she refined some on passing.
She originally intended to put them up for auction, but since Gong Qianxue puts an Elixir forward first, she doesn’t mind going with it.
Muyan says it like sketching in light shades*, but the people from below are nevertheless thoroughly stupefied.
After quite a while, someone finally returns to their senses and says in a loud voice: “Break through a bottleneck, how is that possible? How come I’ve never heard of such a draught?”
“Have you heard of this drug?”
“Never, this little girl is just talking big, isn’t she?”
Questioning voices rise and fall for a time, hardly anyone is convinced.
A cultivation bottleneck is a nightmare that almost all practitioners have.
Whether it is a breakthrough in minor or major stages, those with great luck will take several years to break through, while having bad luck could take ten, or dozens, even a lifetime and make no headway, eventually consuming one’s lifespan.
Even though a Restoration Pill is a precious life-saving drug, it is only a short-term fix.
But breaking through a bottleneck can bring a huge impact throughout the life of a martial practitioner.
That said, how can these people not be astonished?
How can they believe that what even Master Jian Feng’s Elixir couldn’t do, an insignificant little girl’s draught can accomplish?
Gong Qianxue and Yan Lie are also shocked at first, but they soon couldn’t help but express their disdain.
T/N: We’re not quite there yet on the Alchemy part with all the refining of Immortal Pills/Drugs. I won’t spoil anything but we’ll be using the term “draught” for the not-really-medicine, not-quite-pills…
