Chapter 1967 (Raw 2065): Suppressing the Pill Demon
Back at the cave under the medicine cauldron:
Xiao Chen searched the withered skeleton and found a jade tablet in its clothes. His eyes brightened.
When he grasped the jade tablet, he immediately felt a warm sensation, a very wondrous feeling.
However, before he could send his Spiritual Sense in, he suddenly detected an extremely dangerous aura.
Xiao Chen’s expression radically changed as he spun around.
Three black chains charged at Xiao Chen like black lightning.
One black chain bound his leg, and the other two bound his hands.
Xiao Chen’s heart sank. He felt that he could not move at all as a strong force pulled him upwards.
At the same time, strands of evil energy came from the black chains. This energy continuously entered Xiao Chen’s Soul Pool, trying to corrode his soul.
Just the force from the black chains alone already made Xiao Chen feel helpless.
The Soul Energy corroding the soul was even harder to deal with. He could only use his willpower to resist desperately.
Soon, Xiao Chen got dragged to the space above the medicine cauldron. Then, the mysterious existence controlling the chains pulled him into the medicine cauldron.
“Divine Dragon War Body! Break!”
At the crucial moment, Xiao Chen finally forced out the energy corroding his soul.
After he shouted, his Vital Qi surged, roaring like a rushing river. Suddenly, his body swelled, and Dragon Might burst out.
A pair of azure-colored dragon wings crackling with electricity spread out, and the chains binding Xiao Chen broke.
Dragon roars continuously rang out in the empty space. Xiao Chen’s Dragon Might soared until it rivaled an Initial Perfection Sovereign Personage’s.
“Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!”
Suddenly, five figures charged out of the flames in the medicine cauldron. The leader of this group exuded an overwhelming aura and a ferocious might.
This forced back Xiao Chen’s Dragon Might.
This person was the Sovereign Personage Liu Yuanzong. He also had black chains around his body, and his eyes flickered with a crazed glint.
“Haha! Xiao Chen, to think that you still have not left. Since you have not left, then remain here and become a slave of the Pill God. We will trample on the world together!”
Liu Yuanzong actually retained some of his intelligence, quite unlike the berserk and savage pill slaves.
Xiao Chen could not help frowning. Such intelligence, combined with Liu Yuanzong’s strength, would be much harder to deal with.
Liu Yuanzong smiled cockily when he saw Xiao Chen’s expression. “You must find this strange. Hahaha! I am now even stronger than a Small Perfection Sovereign Personage. As long as you offer your soul to Lord Pill God, you can get everything you want!”
Xiao Chen could not be bothered with this madman. His wings flapped, kicking up a strong wind as he quickly fled far away.
Liu Yuanzong alone already posed a challenge. The additional people would make this even harder to deal with. Xiao Chen’s chances of victory were slim.
“You want to leave? This is the Pill God’s world. You cannot leave!” Liu Yuanzong snorted coldly. The pill flame burned fiercely over his entire body as he charged at Xiao Chen, looking like neither human nor ghost.
Liu Yuanzong’s speed was actually no slower than Xiao Chen’s.
“Dang! Dang! Dang!”
After Liu Yuanzong caught up, he quickly attacked. Xiao Chen had to turn around. After forcefully receiving ten moves, Xiao Chen vomited a mouthful of blood and was knocked down.
Just as Xiao Chen was about to crash into the ground, he flapped his wings and hovered in the air.
“Do you feel the strength of the Pill God? Is the flame attacking your heart, putting you in unbearable pain that you cannot do anything about? Hahaha!” Liu Yuanzong laughed playfully as he eyed Xiao Chen like a crazed demon.
Inside Xiao Chen’s body, ten clumps of pill flames charged at his heart like venomous dragons.
These pill flames burned his meridians, an extremely acute pain like millions of poison needles stabbing him.
Right at this moment, Xiao Chen suddenly felt a warmth coming from the jade tablet in his hand. This jade tablet sucked in the pill flames in his body.
After absorbing the pill flames, the jade tablet released a bright light. Xiao Chen felt a strange connection as if he could control that mysterious, mountain-like medicine cauldron.
The entire medicine cauldron shook violently.
A deep and scary voice came from the medicine cauldron. “Kill him! Kill him! Kill him!”
“Yes, Lord Pill God.”
Liu Yuanzong’s expression changed dramatically as he promptly charged at Xiao Chen.
Just at this moment, an endless stream of pill slaves flew out of the medicine cauldron. Radiating a terrifying aura, these pill slaves tried to surround Xiao Chen.
Xiao Chen dodged continuously as he infused his Spiritual Sense into the jade tablet. It turned out that this jade tablet was for storing this medicine cauldron.
This made sense after some thought. The medicine cauldron before him was humongous, nearly the size of a mountain range.
Ordinary storage rings would not be able to contain it. One needed exceptional means to control it.
Moreover, this jade tablet could control the flame in the medicine cauldron. Grasping the jade tablet equaled grasping the medicine cauldron.
However, it was impossible for Xiao Chen to gain complete control of the jade tablet in such a short time.
Furthermore, with Xiao Chen’s Veritable Essence Energy, he could not use the vast flame within the medicine cauldron at all. These were flames released by stellar cores, after all.
Xiao Chen had to become a Divine Vein Realm Sovereign Emperor in order to do that. Currently, the jade tablet had only one use to him.
Xiao Chen no longer had to worry about pill flames entering his body when fighting Liu Yuanzong.
With the jade tablet, he could freely control this weak pill flame.
The medicine cauldron shook continuously. The existence inside clearly seemed irate. Those pill slaves did their best to try and kill Xiao Chen.
At the crucial moment, Xiao Chen’s heart calmed.
Everything in the herb garden seemed to have a purpose. While everything seemed very casual, they actually had a deep meaning.
The herb garden’s purpose was to sink Medicinal Energy into the surroundings of this cave and drive the formations.
The medicinal spring’s purpose was to provide the medicine cauldron with a steady supply of abundant Medicinal Energy.
As for the pill river, that was formed by the expulsion of the Divine Pill’s medicinal dregs.
What about the Coiling Dragon Tree, then?
Xiao Chen felt that he had remembered a critical piece of information as his train of thought gained clarity.
Suddenly, a lightbulb went off in Xiao Chen’s mind. Then, he revealed a smile on his face.
So, that is the case. The Coiling Dragon Tree’s purpose was to suppress the Medicinal Pill’s demonic nature.
The Coiling Dragon Tree is a divine tree. A seven-color Coiling Dragon Tree is extremely high grade. It must have been used to suppress the demonic nature of this Great Desolate Ten Thousand Beast Pill.
This must be the case. The herb garden clearly shows that its master had a meticulous mind. Everything in the herb garden is linked. How could he not have guessed that the Great Desolate Ten Thousand Beast Pill would contain demonic nature? He must have thought of this method to suppress the demonic nature.
However, due to the absence of maintenance and care, this Coiling Dragon Tree withered and died. Hence, the Medicinal Pill gained a demonic nature.
“To think that you dare to get distracted. Die!”
When Liu Yuanzong saw Xiao Chen, who had been darting about after spreading the Azure Dragon Divine Wings, paused briefly, he snorted coldly and launched a fist light containing his ferocious aura, which shook the space.
However, just as the fist light was about to land, the Azure Dragon Divine Wings crackling with electricity on Xiao Chen’s back folded over and covered his body, receiving the punch.
A surging Dragon Might swept out and knocked back Liu Yuanzong.
The flames on Liu Yuanzong’s body diminished continuously. Electric light burst out and burned his body beyond recognition.
“What kind of Dragon Might is this…?”
After one strike, the bones in Xiao Chen’s body shifted. He withdrew the Divine Dragon War Body and recovered his original appearance.
“Light of Freedom!”
Xiao Chen looked at that medicine cauldron and charged straight at it after turning into a flash of lightning.
He left the group of pill slaves in his dust. Then, he turned into a lightning dragon and landed on the handle of the medicine cauldron. After a moment, he revealed his true form, standing at the rim of the medicine cauldron.
When Xiao Chen looked down, he saw a terrifying existence trying to charge out of the fierce flames to swallow him up.
Calmly and unhurriedly, he took out the mirror box, then quickly tossed down the seven-color Coiling Dragon Tree sapling.
The Grade 8 Heaven Rank medicinal spring above sent out a vast amount of Medicinal Energy again, instantly pouring it into the seven-color Coiling Dragon Tree sapling.
The seven-color Coiling Dragon Tree sapling grew at a visible rate as it fell, suppressing that Pill Demon.
The sapling burgeoned forth, sprouting branches and leaves. In the blink of an eye, it grew to one kilometer tall.
The Coiling Dragon Tree looked robust and strong, firmly rooting in the flames. To think that the Coiling Dragon Tree can absorb the energy of the flames from stars to nourish itself!
Then, Xiao Chen recalled that the Coiling Dragon Tree in the Red Dragon Palace was also nourished by flames. Hence, it was not strange that this seven-color Coiling Dragon Tree could use flames as nourishment.
Miserable shrieks came from the medicine cauldron as it trembled endlessly.
The chains fell off the bodies of the pill slaves flying towards Xiao Chen. They became like flowers that lost all sustenance, instantly withering.
“No!” Liu Yuanzong shouted in horror. However, that did not change anything. His lifeforce ebbed rapidly, and his body shriveled up.
A Sovereign Personage died like that, paying a severe price for his greed.
