Chapter 287 – Ensemble Organized Without Problems

 There were not many alchemist masters in the cultivation world, it was not that everyone did not want to learn alchemy. But because of talent, perception, hobbies, etc., the number of alchemist masters was not many. Therefore, it was commonplace for one to prepare their own medicinal ingredients and then ask the alchemist masters to help them in refining it.

At the invitation of Elder Wu Xiong, Yang Chen participated in the process of refining the Heaven Seizing Pill. Not only him, Deng Yiya, Zhu Peng, He Lianyun, even Fan Shan, who was not an alchemy master, had such an experience.

It was not surprising that Shi Shanshan made this request to Yang Chen. Just because of the special nature of the Questioning Inner Heart Pill was now the exclusive resource of the Pure Yang Palace. Shi Shanshan was not sure whether Yang Chen would accept. Thus, she felt very embarrassed asking for it.

"Ok!"

Yang Chen almost did not consider the answer. Shi Shanshan, who was a frosty person all the year round, could not help but show a hint of surprise.

"However, what are you going to give me, this alchemy master?"

Yang Chen wanted Shi Shanshan to show more expressions and asked.

It was also very normal for the alchemy master to help people to refine their alchemy and receive remuneration. In fact, almost all alchemists did this, with no exceptions.

She didn't expect Yang Chen to be so refreshed. She remained in the shocked state. When she heard Yang Chen's request, she responded hurriedly, "what conditions do you want?"

"Can you give me anything?"

Yang Chen looked at Shi Shanshan with a smile.

"As long as the Green Jade Immortal Island can afford it."

Shi Shanshan did not go to Yang Chen's side, but replied steadily.

"That's fine."

Yang Chen smiled and continued, "when the Island Master and Palace Master finish their discussion, I will consider what I want!"

This was very normal. Yang Chen was still a person of the Pure Yang Palace. Such a big thing, of course, must be verified by the Palace Master. This point Shi Shanshan also understood, in fact, Yang Chen's approach was just like what she told the Island Master.

"Actually, the Questioning Inner Heart Pill, which was auctioned by the Pure Yang Palace a few years ago, was bought by my sect."

After Shi Shanshan sat silent for a while, she said suddenly without caring whether Yang Chen was listening. But she knew that Yang Chen would certainly hear it.

"Has it cost a lot of money?"

Yang Chen didn't know the grand occasion of the auction, and didn't know what the final price was, but it must have been costly.

"Connected to the one, the best alchemist in the sect, the Hall Masters, shared three to study, each one was broken into powder."

Shi Shanshan did not know what psychology she had, always felt that she had to tell Yang Chen everything. Then she got the point and slowly said, "they found out the medicinal ingredients in it but the refining techniques you used could not be deciphered."

Sure enough, they were the masters of the big sects. Knowing the preciousness of the Questioning Inner Heart Pill, that could be used by a master of the Dacheng realm, they still resolutely took out three pills to study and try replicating it. The refining technique could not be ordinary but unfortunately, they still underestimated the Questioning Inner Heart Pill.

The reason why the Questioning Inner Heart Pill could have that effect was 30% due to the use of the medicinal herbs and the remaining 70% was due to the refining technique. To produce the Questioning Inner Heart Pill was like knowing the refining technique. Unless a Seventh Grade Alchemist Master existed, it was impossible.

Seventh Grade Alchemist Master, it was not so easy for one to appear in the Immortal world, not to mention in the mortal world. Even if all the alchemy divisions in the mortal world were added up, it was impossible to get through the refining techniques of the Questioning Inner Heart Pill.

It took the price of a fortune, but in the end, they had to find Yang Chen again. It could be said that Green Jade Immortal Island was also very helpless. However, it was obvious to all that the Questioning Inner Heart Pill was strong. The Island Master and the elders have witnessed it and said that they must also make greater benefits of the Pure Yang Palace in exchange for a batch of Questioning Inner Heart Pill.

Compared with resources, the most important thing in the martial art sects was people. If the masters of Green Jade Immortal Island emerge in an endless stream, it would last forever, and they would be able to do whatever they wanted.

Just as Shi Shanshan and Yang Chen still had such a relationship, the sect must of course would use it. Shi Shanshan was also under the inquiry of the sect. After hesitating for a long time, she said that she had gone out with Yang Chen and exchanged a batch of spiritual medicines.

Since there was this source, then everything was easy to do. The Island Master asked Shi Shanshan and Yang Chen to go out alone. They also hoped that Shi Shanshan could persuade Yang Chen to make a move. She, Elder Guan and Elder Min were persuading the Palace Master.

Shi Shanshan was very worried that Yang Chen would be in conflict about it. Therefore, she did not mention this matter at the beginning, but she did not think that Yang Chen did not have any reservations at all. It was just a normal proposal in exchange of payment, it was a hundred times smoother than the imagination of Shi Shanshan and the Island Master.

The more this was the case, Shi Shanshan felt that there seems to be a place in her heart that was slowly loosening and softening. She and Yang Chen were together originally because of a misunderstanding. Of course, the initiator was herself. She did not know what the Sect Master and elders thought, but she felt they were a strong match.

However, after several contacts, Shi Shanshan became more and more understanding of Yang Chen, and was also scared of their two silent tacit understandings.

Yang Chen never asked for any further contact, which was exactly what Shi Shanshan wanted. However, the feeling of more and more tacit understanding made Shi Shanshan fearful; she was afraid that one day she would not be able to put on her frosty face in front of Yang Chen.

"If, I mean, if."

Shi Shanshan hesitated for a long time and still carefully asked, "if you agree to the Island Master, what are you going to ask for as the payment?"

"Fire Seeds!"

Yang Chen almost did not hesitate to blurt out, "I will specify Third and Fourth Grade Fire Seeds."

"How many?"

When she heard that Yang Chen only wanted Fire Seeds, her heart was even more relieved. For a big sect like Green Jade Immortal Island, third and fourth grade fire seeds were not so unimaginable.

"That depends on how many Questioning Inner Heart Pills you want."

Yang Chen smiled and said very casually, "your share is enough to ask for two complete furnaces of Questioning Inner Heart Pill. With my current ability, it would produce at least twenty pills. One Fifth, ten Fourth and forty Third Grade Fire Seeds, wouldn't be excessive right?"

A Questioning Inner Heart Pill could be of help to the master of the Dacheng realm. To put it bluntly, if Green Jade Immortal Island was willing, each one could make a Yuanying realm master upgrade to the Dacheng realm. If there were really 20 masters of the Dacheng realm, even if it was the Greatest Heaven Sect and the Five Elements Sect, it would necessitate giving face to the Green Jade Immortal Island.

Acquiring 20 Dacheng realm masters in exchange for one Fifth, ten Fourth and forty Third Grade Fire Seeds was not a loss for the Green Jade Immortal Island, but in fact a big bargain.

Shi Shanshan once again fell into a sluggish state, she completely didn't imagine that Yang Chen would use such a "low" price to refine Questioning Inner Heart Pills. Switching to any one of the alchemy masters, it was estimated that they would take this opportunity to heavily blackmail them.

The only explanation was that because of this, Shi Shanshan almost unknowingly attributed the reason to herself. Of course, she thought so, but Shi Shanshan did not say a word.

"How is your body shape getting worse and worse?"

After a long time, Shi Shanshan asked. However, looking at this situation, it seemed to be breaking the deadlock. If Yang Chen's body shape had changed, anyone could have seen it when he meets him, how could she say it only now?

"A kind of refining body technique."

Yang Chen smiled and stood up, "not too early, let's go back first. It is estimated that the Island Master and the Palace Master must have been waiting impatiently."

This time, Shi Shanshan did not say anything, got up and followed Yang Chen, soon they returned to the Pure Yang Palace's main hall. As expected, the Island Master and the two elders had arranged their accommodations under the concealed but enthusiastic hospitality of the Pure Yang Palace. Elder Gao Shiyan was still waiting there alone.

Shi Shanshan was a guest. The high elders directly sent a Jiedan realm core disciple and made Shi Shanshan go to the courtyard where the Island Master and the two elders stayed. After everything was settled, Yang Chen returned to the hall.

After the restrictions were placed, Elder Gao used several Secret Techniques directly; Yang Chen and Elder Gao appeared in the ramp of the Blue Vault Mountain Immortal's Cave. Entering the hall through the ramp, he saw the Palace Master and several other elders.

"Yang Chen did Fairy Shi tell you about the intention of the Island Master?"

The master of the palace directly asked him to sit down and asked.

"She did." Yang Chen nodded.

"What do you think?", asked the Palace Master.

"Everything will be in accordance with the instructions of the Palace Master. If the Palace Master agrees then this disciple will refine it for them. If the Palace Master does not, then forget it."

Yang Chen must be consistent with the sect on this issue.

The Palace Master and the Elders, of course, were expecting to see this kind of attitude from Yang Chen. Everyone listened to Yang Chen's words and they silently nodded their heads.

"The meaning of the Island Master is that half of the income of the hundred thousand mountain Green Jade Immortal Island will be handed over to the sect within 20 years. In the future, there will be more cooperation between the two sides."

The Palace Master nodded and expressed the sincerity of the Island Master today.

"What do you think?"

This question was asked clearly for Yang Chen's decision. The Palace Master turned to see the others' understanding, but the elders behind him did not have a single question, indicating that everyone had the same mind. Yang Chen had been regarded as an elder who could express his opinions.

"The disciple is afraid!"

Yang Chen was moved by some people. He was just a little Jiedan realm master. In the Pure Yang Palace, he was not a top-ranking member, but he received this honour.

"You don't have any burden, you talk about your opinion."

The Palace Master swayed and stopped Yang Chen's words, "your opinion is very important."

The Palace Master's words were very flattering for Yang Chen. It seemed that if Yang Chen said that he was not willing, the sect intended to push away this possible cooperation.

"Please forgive this disciple!"

Yang Chen knew that he couldn't speak for himself. He could only plead guilty first, and then slowly said, "since the Island Master is sincere, this disciple feels that it is a good idea to cooperate. Anyway, this is a Questioning Inner Heart Pill. No matter when you need it, with this cooperation, you may be able to bring the relationship closer, and my sect can also improve their strength."

"Well, if that is the case, then I will reply to the Island Master tomorrow."

The master of the palace said with a smile, "we have a few old guys who think this is a good opportunity. However, cooperation is cooperation, your share can not be cheap. They, despite the opening, Green Jade Immortal Island is rich in wealth, and it is unnecessary to meet their expectations."

"This disciple also said to Fairy Shi that some Fire Seeds should be used as compensation."

Yang Chen also did not conceal this from the Elders, and directly said the rewards and the passages he had mentioned at the time, "they must have large assets in the Green Jade Immortal Island and they won't care about this level of compensation."

When they heard that Yang Chen had already thought of the people in front of him, and even put forward his own personal rewards. The Palace Master and several elders began to laugh as if by prior agreement.

Yang Chen actually limited the number of pills to only 20. Others were not clear. Why were they still unclear? Yang Chen gave the sect 25 second grade Questioning Inner Heart Pills through one refining process, while he was going to refine only 20 first grade Questioning Inner Heart Pills from two refining processes for Green Jade Immortal Island. The lesser graded ones had to have at least the same amount as the second grade Questioning Inner Heart Pills. Thus, this was still the most conservative estimate.

With so many second grade Questioning Inner Heart Pill, the people present at the scene could almost guarantee the outcome. If they practice hard, they could enter the Dacheng realm. If the Pure Yang Palace had so many masters of the Dacheng realm, why could they not enter the ranks of first-class big sects?

If these extra benefits were not counted, the half income of the Hundred Thousand Mountains from Green Jade Immortal Island for 20 years would be enough to meet the accumulation of hundreds of years from Yang Chen. Pure Yang Palace had indeed the best development opportunity in history.

These were all material benefits, there was no calculation of the favours the Green Jade Immortal Island would owe to the Pure Yang Palace because of this. The favours of the Green Jade Immortal Island were enough to match the same number of material objects. This time, the Pure Yang Palace had gained a lot of benefits.

ζ

Early the next morning, the Palace Master went to the guest quarters personally to visit the Island Master, explaining the meaning of the cooperation. On Yang Chen's own request, Shi Shanshan had already told the Island Master that he could at least get twenty Questioning Inner Heart Pills. The Island Master and the two Elders were all overjoyed. As for the fire seeds that Yang Chen asked for, the Green Jade Immortal Island was not worried in the least, they were not worth mentioning.

Both sides had achieved their goals and were happy. The Green Jade Immortal Island would have these 20 Questioning Inner Heart Pills, their strength would definitely soar. The Pure Yang Palace was also entering the ranks of rapid development, a win-win situation, so everyone was smiling.

The cooperation was successful, and it was not rare to celebrate. Yang Chen's Jade Dragon wine was naturally a must-have. When the guests and the host were happy, the Xu Chengxin, the director of the Foreign Affairs Hall, came to the side of the Palace Master.

"What is it?"

Seeing Xu Chengxin's face was unusual, the Palace Master asked, and even involved the Island Master.

"A few fellow daoist from the Greatest Heaven Sect came, saying that there are important things to discuss, and want to call the Palace Master."
