Ch386 – Refining the Antidote
“Ah Hen, not just anyone can easily obtain that spiritual Qi-gathering magic treasure.” Lin Xuanzhi patiently explained, “If I can take it with me, the first thing I’ll do is give it to Ah Hen to use. If I can’t get it, I’ll withdraw immediately and will never put myself in a dangerous situation…”
“I don’t care.” Yan Tianhen pouted and interrupted Lin Xuanzhi’s words, “What exactly did that Nine-Tailed Divine Fox say to you? I don’t want any magic treasure that gathers spiritual Qi. I just want you to stay away from the Great Demon-Sealing Array. Anyhow, either we go together or we don’t go at all, you can only choose one.”
Lin Xuanzhi patted Yan Tianhen’s head, “Don’t be capricious. That thing is very important, more important than anything.”
Yan Tianhen frowned and stared at Lin Xuanzhi. “What’s so important about it?”
Lin Xuanzhi paused, then asked softly, “Ah Hen, do you know how the Five Continents’ present state came into being?”
Yan Tianhen shook his head.
No one knew where this barrier enclosing the Five Continents came from or how to break it.
Lin Xuanzhi stated, “I know the origin of this barrier and how to break it, but I can’t say it yet.”
Yan Tianhen was extremely clever. He thought for a second, “Is it possible that it’s related to this spiritual Qi-gathering magic treasure inside the Great Demon-Sealing Array?”
Lin Xuanzhi smiled slightly, “My family’s Ah Hen is smart.”
Yan Tianhen was taken aback, clear surprise written all over his face, “How is that possible? What’s the relationship between these?”
“I’ll tell you these things in the future. It’s not the right time yet.”
Lin Xuanzhi’s gaze swept past the others and Yan Tianhen nodded thoughtfully.
Soon after, Yan Tianhen’s expression changed again, and he spoke with a face full of unhappiness, “Dage, don’t change the subject. Right now we are talking about the matter of you wanting to throw me away.”
Lin Xuanzhi, “……”
He simply didn’t want Yan Tianhen to get close to the Great Demon-Sealing Array and recover his memory. How come it became him wanting to throw Yan Tianhen away?
Lin Xuanzhi explained in many ways, but Yan Tianhen refused to budge. In the end, the two had to give up discussing this topic.
Unhappiness was written all over Yan Tianhen’s face. Lin Xuanzhi had to coax him in a different way.
“I’ll say, just how long are we going to wait for them?” Qing Zhu frowned, full of dissatisfaction.
Yuan Tianwen looked at the sky. “How about this — let’s hit the road first. I’ll leave behind some people in Yuan One’s party to wait for them here.”
Be it the Colorful Caterpillar Grass or the Icy Heart Water Lotus, neither could wait. After all, time waits for no one.
Lin Xuanzhi nodded, “We won’t wait any longer. We’ll be on our way.”
The crowd reached an agreement and went to mount their horses in succession, ready to wave their whips and run to the depths of the forest.
Just then, there was a flash of sword light, and Xiao Linfeng fell from his sword, in quite a sorry state. He was also protecting something in his hand.
Qing Zhu’s expression changed slightly. His feet moved, but he did not come forward.
However, Yan Tianhen rushed over and put his fingers under Xiao Linfeng’s nose. “He’s not dead, he’s still breathing!”
Xiao Linfeng, “……”
Xiao Linfeng took something out of his clothes and threw it into Yan Tianhen’s hand. He sighed with relief, “This thing is too difficult to obtain. The demonic beast guarding it can breathe fire and expand in size. If it weren’t for Liu Mengchen, this boy whose brain seems to have a hole in it, I wouldn’t have been able to snatch this item if he hadn’t fought so crazily with his life on the line. Tsk tsk, I almost left my little life there. That would not be worth it.”
Yuan Tianwen, “! ! !”
Yuan Tianwen didn’t know what expression to use to express his mood at this time.
Bei Shitian’s expression was also moved. “This easily?”
Yeah, so easily?
The two spiritual herbs that countless people failed to get actually turned out to be so easily obtained by them?
This wasn’t normal!
“It’s a little scary how smoothly everything went.”
“Yeah, let’s hurry to see if there is anything wrong with it.”
“If we have doctors or alchemists here, we can refine the antidote right now.”
“Ah, we really do.” Yuan Tianwen looked at Yuan One standing beside him, whose emotions couldn’t be clearly seen under the mask.
Yuan One came out immediately, “Yuan Seven is a doctor. I’ll have her refine it now.”
Yuan Tianwen nodded.
Lin Xuanzhi asked, “Is she reliable?”
Yuan Tianwen was very assured, “We can rely on Yuan Seven. Many of the medicines that Yuyang took before came from Yuan Seven’s hands.”
Yan Tianhen remarked, “Brother Yuan, you really have crouching tigers and hidden dragons surrounding you.”
Yuan Tianwen looked at Lin Xuanzhi with profound meaning, “I can’t compare with your Dage.”
Two easily obtained spiritual plants were taken by Yuan Seven and she started refining right away. Although Yuan Tianwen said that he was at ease, he was in fact the most uneasy at this time. He would go to Yuan Seven’s refining location and patrol around it every now and then, fearing that something might go wrong, causing Duan Yuyang to roll his eyes several times.
Xiao Linfeng healed himself. Although his injuries looked serious, they were actually superficial injuries and did not hinder anything.
Qing Zhu stood by watching Xiao Linfeng.
Xiao Linfeng laughed, “Little Zhuzi, why don’t you care about how Liu Mengchen is doing now?”
Qing Zhu replied without thinking. “Anyhow, he’s not dead.”
Xiao Linfeng asked, “Why do you say that?”
Qing Zhu swept a glance at him, “You have such a good relationship with him. If he is dead, how would you have the energy to laugh and joke around right now?”
Xiao Linfeng nodded, “That’s right, my family’s Little Zhuzi is indeed smart.”
Qing Zhu rebuked indignantly, “Who did you say is your family’s?”
Xiao Linfeng blinked, “Who else but Little Zhuzi?”
Qing Zhu took a deep breath, “Why do you say that?”
Xiao Linfeng patted his Dantian Qi Sea, “Because your spiritual core is inside here, so you and I are as inseparably connected as bones and flesh.”

Qing Zhu, “……”
Qing Zhu nearly fell headlong with anger at this man’s shamelessness!
It was fine if Xiao Linfeng didn’t hide it and just pretended that this kind of thing never happened, but he actually took the initiative to remind him and tease him!
Xiao Linfeng couldn’t help laughing when he looked at the furious Qing Zhu, “I won’t tease you anymore, Little Zhuzi. Liu Mengchen has other things to do, so he left first. I know your hometown is in this Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest. Do you want to visit the place where you used to live?”
Qing Zhu’s expression showed some yearning. After all, it was the place where he grew up for so many years. Of course he missed it very much. However, it’s just that ever since he left the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest, he had always been far away and it wasn’t convenient for him to visit.
However, when Lin Zhan was still here, he’d always bring Qing Zhu to visit his lair in the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest once every two years, but ever since Lin Zhan left……
Thinking of this, Qing Zhu became silent.
“Forget it, let’s not.” Qing Zhu said with some loneliness.
“Why?” Asked Xiao Linfeng.
“I don’t want you, out of all people, to see so many Inquiring Immortals Grass.” Qing Zhu answered rudely, “You will take away all the Inquiring Immortals Grass and then give them to those rich families in the world.”
Xiao Linfeng promised, “I won’t.”
Qing Zhu glanced at him quickly, “I don’t believe you.”
“It’s fine if you don’t believe me, I will let you slowly believe me in the future. Let’s do this then. When the time comes, Little Zhuzi will secretly go visit your home, and I will guard you against being followed by others? Like that, no one else will know where your home is.”
Qing Zhu seemed to have some change of heart. He thought about it and lightly nodded.
Xiao Linfeng couldn’t help laughing, thinking, This Little Zhuzi truly is a little fool. Why did he believe him so easily? Back then, when Liu Mengchen deceived Little Zhuzi, he couldn’t understand why Little Zhuzi wasn’t able to see through such inferior lies, but now he understood.
A pure and simple plant spirit like Qing Zhu was really easy to deceive. He had already been fooled in the blink of an eye.
However, Xiao Linfeng was not that kind of person. When he meets such a simple and lovely person, he will only protect him and love him, but will not hurt him or cheat him.
It took a certain amount of time to refine the antidote, and the refining process lasted for seven days.
During the seven days, Lin Xuanzhi and the others did not wait in place but spread around to explore the way.
On the second day, they found that they could no longer leave the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest.
“I still can’t leave today.” Bei Shitian spoke flatly. “When I went to the edge, I saw many mercenary groups come in and many cultivators wanted to leave, but no matter what method they used, they would be bounced back.”
Lin Xuanzhi frowned, “The barrier has been strengthened again. Before, cultivators with low cultivation could still leave, but now they can’t, regardless of their cultivation.”
Ji Yunwei pressed his forehead with some headache, “Not only has it been strengthened, but it has also expanded a little outside. I don’t know if the whole Qi City will be included at this rate.”
Qing Zhu spoke, “Look on the bright side, the spiritual Qi is somewhat richer.”
Xiao Linfeng knitted his eyebrows, “On the downside, the fact that the spiritual Qi is more abundant shows that the Great Demon-Sealing Array has loosened even further. Who knows how powerful that demon is now.”
“You just had to argue with me again!” Qing Zhu glared at Xiao Linfeng.
Xiao Linfeng spread out his hands innocently, “Little Zhuzi, I’m just telling the truth.”
Qing Zhu responded, “I hate truthful people like you the most.”

Xiao Linfeng, “……”
Lin Xuanzhi and the others had become accustomed to the occasional bickering between the two these days. Speaking of which, every time, it was Xiao Linfeng who provoked Qing Zhu to anger with a few words, and throughout the entire time, he always had an innocent expression, as though he had done nothing wrong.
Lin Xuanzhi glanced at Xiao Linfeng, “It seems that the problem is indeed the Great Demon-Sealing Array. I plan to visit the Great Demon-Sealing Array.”
At this time, Bei Shitian already knew that there was a magic treasure for gathering spiritual Qi in the Great Demon-Sealing Array. He did not even have to think about it, “I will go with you.”
Yuan Tianwen looked at Duan Yuyang, “I will follow you guys, and Yangyang will wait here with Yuan One.”
Duan Yuyang frowned, “Why should I wait here?”
Yuan Tianwen explained, “It is really too dangerous in the Great Demon-Sealing Array. You are pregnant and cannot go there.”
Duan Yuyang was angry, “Are you looking down on me? Although I have a ball in my stomach now, this ball doesn’t hinder matters at all!”
Yuan Tianwen spoke in a placating voice, “Yangyang, you misunderstood…”
Duan Yuyang and Yuan Tianwen engaged in a negotiation for a while where one side crushed the other side and ended with Yuan Tianwen’s complete defeat. Yan Tianhen looked at Duan Yuyang adoringly, “Brother Yuyang, you are so incredible.”
Yuan Tianwen’s expression didn’t change, “That’s because I let him.”
Duan Yuyang’s eyebrows rose up.
However, before he could open his mouth, Yuan Tianwen added due to his strong desire to survive, “That’s because I love him.”
Duan Yuyang, “……”
Yan Tianhen silently turned his head to Lin Xuanzhi’s side and his eyes were full of complaint.
Lin Xuanzhi’s heart was full of swear words. It was fine Yuan Tianwen just wanted to show his love, but why should he drag Lin Xuanzhi into the water as well?
Yan Tianhen looked at Lin Xuanzhi darkly, “Dage, will you let me go?”
Lin Xuanzhi, “…..Go go go, you must go. Who won’t let you go? I’ll beat him till his entire face is bloody!”
Yan Tianhen immediately beamed, “Dage, you indeed love me too.”
What can Lin Xuanzhi say?
What else can he say?
Forget it, forget it, let’s leave it up to fate.
