Chapter 327: Beast-baiting Fragrance, Make a Fortune
“Junior Yun Jiu, you’re really quite something! I didn’t expect you to come up with such a brilliant idea.” Bai Lan was starting to appreciate Junior Yun Jiu more and more.
Yun Jiu was not only extraordinarily handsome, but also intelligent and with advanced cultivation. This made him an absolute first choice as a Dao mate.
Bai Lan who had always been in one night stands, now considered giving her heart for the first time with the intention of making Yun Jiu her Dao mate.
Su Junqing was vaguely aware of Bai Lan’s intention. His jealousness and hatred towards Jiuge was now growing, and the intention of killing her was getting more intense.
Ye Yunzhi seemed to notice his thoughts. A sharp light flashed in her hollow eyes.
“Let’s cut to the chase and try it quickly!” The Han Brothers hurriedly summoned several disciples to bring over the bodies of the Armored Crocodiles. Then they placed it in front of Yun Jiuge in fawn and said, “Junior Yun Jiu, please.”
Yun Jiuge did not refuse either.
First, she made deep cuts on both the Armored Crocodiles’ bodies and then threw them into the peach forest.
Then, she directed her Bone Spurs to cut down two child-like peaches, making them land on the corpses of the Armored Crocodiles.
The eyes of the two child-like peaches turned red the moment they landed. Then, they pounced in the direction of the blood’s smell, instantly sucking the Armored Crocodiles dry into mummified corpses. Finally, they closed their eyes and ripened peacefully.
Yun Jiuge waved and summoned the two Human-faced Peaches back. After a careful look, she passed them to Lang Ya and the Han Brothers for another check.
“It works.” Lang Ya was now sure that corpses of Demonic Beasts could ripen the Human-faced Peaches.
The Han brothers nodded in agreement too.
“That’s great.” The Liu Clan sisters held hands in excitement. It was good news for them to be free from a melee.
The Low-rank Disciples gave a warm cheer as if they had seen the dawn of victory.
“Junior Yun Jiu, you can now disperse the Beast-baiting Fragrance.” Lang Ya’s meaning was to hunt separately according to their peaks.
The quicker they plucked the Human-faced Peaches the better, so that they could leave the Secret Realm to report its changes to the Sect.
The Han Brothers agreed with this suggestion. There was no need for an alliance in the current situation, and thus better to hunt separately.
“Junior Yun Jiu, the remaining disciples from each peak are now different in numbers. It wouldn’t be fair if each peak had to hand over 500 Demonic Beasts.” Bai Lan had the least disciples now, and felt wronged that they had to hunt the same number of Demonic Beasts as the others.
“Then why aren’t you saying that it’s unfair for Junior Yun Jiu who has many Low-rank Disciples? Han Xiaoxi was annoyed with Bai Lan who liked to split hairs.
“Exactly. I think it would be fairer if we redistributed the disciples evenly within each peak.” Bai Lan intended to get a few disciples from Number Two Peak to serve as cannon fodder for their peak.
The disciples from Number Two Peak were nervous again, afraid that Yun Jiuge would agree with this suggestion. After all, the proposal sounded quite reasonable.
“There’s no need to redistribute. We’ll go by headcount — each person is to hunt a demon or a beast. Anyone who hunts more than one can sell it to others.” Since redistributing disciples wouldn’t make things easier, Yun Jiuge thought it was better to keep them all.
“I’m fine with that.” Bai Lan agreed immediately. The high-ranking disciples would have a higher advantage if this was to be done by headcount.
Lang Ya and the Han Brothers were silent. This suggestion was more favorable to them too.
After all, they could just kill more beasts and give them to Junior Yun Jiu in exchange for a favor.
“The Beast-baiting Fragrance that I’ve cultivated is very strong, just one can attract more than 100 Demonic Beasts at a go.”
Yun Jiuge’s Beast-baiting Fragrance was not very eye-catching with a black appearance and the size of a human thumb.
But it was very effective.
It could spread the fragrance scent of a female beast when lit up. Male beasts within the radius of two miles would then come running towards the scent.
“Don’t worry, Junior Yun Jiu. We won’t waste the Beast-baiting Fragrance.” The Han Brothers stared at the Beast-baiting Fragrance.
“We’ve full confidence in the pills produced by Junior Yun Jiu!” Bai Lan smiled as she stretched out her hands to Yun Jiuge.
“This Beast-baiting Fragrance was made from the blood essence of the Mother Fragrance Beast. And as you know, a Mother Fragrance Beast is worth thousands of Spiritual Energy — thus even a small amount of blood essence is not easy to get.”
Yun Jiuge tossed the Beast-baiting Fragrance in her hands, instead of giving it out.
In fact, she’d used just a little blood essence from the Mother Fragrance Beast to make these pills. The rest of it was supplemented with herbs which were not expensive.
But she couldn’t give them away just like that.
“Junior Yun Jiu, how much do you intend to sell it for?” asked Lang Ya directly.
“Junior, we aren’t very rich. Do give us a reasonable price.” the Han Brothers said bitterly.
“We can’t afford it either if it’s too expensive.” Bai Lan wasn’t willing to spend this money.
“Since we’re all from the same master, why would I try to profit from this? I’ll sell them to you at the cost price. 1,000 Spiritual Jade for one.” This price seemed fair — Yun Jiuge’s profit was only half of it.
“Give us five.” Lang Ya took out 5,000 pieces of Spiritual Jade without any hesitation.
“Senior Lang Ya is indeed forthright. I admire you.” Yun Jiuge’s mood was lightened. She handed five Beast-baiting Fragrances to him.
Lang Ya took the incense and examined it to make sure there was no problem. Then he said to his disciples behind him, “Let’s share the cost equally. 100 Spiritual Jade per person.”
At this time, there were still more than 500 disciples from the Number One Peak. Lang Ya could earn a little reward for his hard work if each of them handed over 100 pieces of Spiritual Jade.
100 Spiritual Jade was not considered expensive. The disciples handed them over willingly.
The Han Brothers and Bai Lan followed, each buying three pieces of Beast-baiting Fragrance from Yun Jiuge. Then they collected 100 Spiritual Jade from each of their disciples.
Over at Number Two Peak, Little Fatty had taken the initiative to help Yun Jiuge and the disciples collect the Spiritual Jade.
Some of the Low-rank Disciples who did not bring enough Spiritual Jade used their Contribution Points as a substitute or other materials in exchange. The atmosphere was very lively.
Su Junqing was naturally not in a position to take the Beast-baiting Fragrance, because all the disciples had recognized Yun Jiuge as their leader unanimously. There was nothing he could do.
Su Junqing’s nails pierced deeply into his palm as he clenched his fist tightly, telling himself to be patient.
Once the Human-faced Peaches became ripe, he’d make everyone know his true abilities.
A sharp light flashed again in the eyes of Ye Yunzhi, who was standing beside him.
“Junior, Yun Jiu, we’ll go up north.” Bai Lan rushed to speak as she kept her Spiritual Jade.
The Lizard Prairie was to the east, the Death Swamp to the south. The west and north were much safer.
“I’m going to the east.” The Black Magic Weapon in Lang Ya’s Magical Bottomless Bag was to restrain the Blood Earthworm in the Lizard Prairie.
“Junior Yun Jiu, where do you intend to go?” asked Han Xiaoxi warily.
Since they were a large number with higher cultivation, it seemed logical for them to go to the Death Swamp. But perhaps Junior Yun Jiu had his own plans.
“I’m going to the south,” said Yun Jiuge. There were more than 700 disciples on her side, which would need a large supply of beasts.
The situation in the west was still unknown. The Death Swamp would give them more beasts to hunt.
With Zi Shang as a protective shield, she felt it wouldn’t be a big problem.
Zi Shang touched her head approvingly and said, “Well done.”
Although Yun Jiuge did not know why Zi Shang was so enthusiastic, she still felt more assured.
