Chapter 107 – Will I Get Rich Today?
“My master, he really doesn’t like challenges… And…” Speaking of this, Ye Xiao sighed.
“What?” Gu Jin-Long noticed that Ye Xiao’s expression was unusual, so he asked.
“Brother Gu, we are like old friends. You and I are truly congenial. I won’t treat you as a stranger. Let me talk honestly.” Ye Xiao played sincere.
“Yes, please, Brother Feng.” Gu Jin-Long acted like he also thought they were like old friends with a bright smile. Ye Xiao frowned and spoke bitterly, “The so called dan-making… Brother Gu, you see, all the masters of dan-making have a great force supporting them. Right? Let’s just think about those endless amount of failed dan beads. What are they? They are countless of precious treasures, aren’t they?!”
Gu Jin-Long nodded and agreed, “Exactly. That’s true.”
“And what is the price for all those wasted treasures? They are rare. And even if they are normal, it will still have a cost to collect them all, right? It needs money to buy them, right? Me and my master, how can we afford all those materials?”
Ye Xiao was upset.
“It is hard especially for my master. He has been keeping his purity so that he can produce the supreme dan beads. He doesn’t want to meet people. He doesn’t want to get into the society. He doesn’t want to love a woman… He will rather die than being a dan-maker in the big sects. How can he possibly get supply for himself?”
While Ye Xiao was speaking, Gu Jin-Long nodded.
“So… to produce some supreme dan beads, dan-makers might have to give up faster improvements with their capability! A dan-maker wants to improve, so he needs massive amount of materials that are offered by the powerful sects… Only with countless materials can the dan-makers produce more and more dan beads… But if he wants to produce supreme dan beads, he has to stay away from the martial world…”
“That is the main reason why all the so called ‘masters of dan-making’ have never truly achieved the pure top range!”
Ye Xiao sighed.
“It is a serious contradiction… A contradiction that can never be solved…” Gu Jin-Long sighed too.
Because of what Ye Xiao just said, Gu Jin-Long completely lost faith on what he had been thinking in mind.
“So…” Ye Xiao smiled bitterly, “My master had no other choice, so he only made Pei-Yun Dan. He couldn’t make other kinds of dan because we don’t have enough materials, or because…”
Ye Xiao suddenly humphed and spoke proudly, “If the materials were enough, Gu-Yuan Dan, Ju-Yuan Dan, Bone Ablutionary Dan, Fa-Mai Dan, Limit-breaking Dan, Di-Yuan Dan, Tian-Ding Dan, Wu-Xing Dan, Qi-Qing Dan, Zhan-Yuan Dan, even the Nine-rolled Golden Dan… are all easy jobs for my master. When he becomes practiced enough, he can even produce the supreme Nine-rolled Golden Dan…”
Ye Xiao had just named out over seventy names of different kinds of dan from lower grade to higher grade. Gu Jin-Long and Wan Zheng-Hao were surprised with lights in their eyes. It was like they were watching the most precious treasure in the world!
“Really?” Wan Zheng-Hao asked hurriedly.
“Humph!” Ye Xiao smiled and took out a purple jade bottle. He spoke blandly, “You should know that not only Pei-Yuan Dan can be developed to the supreme level… Brothers, look… Tell me what this is?”
Gu Jin-Long seriously took over the bottle and opened it. Suddenly, a thick white cloud rushed out and then completely covered his face.
Gu Jin-Long had his sensations filled with a certain comfort that seeped deep into his bones.
A dan bead shining golden glow actually flew out and stayed in the air. It was rolling slowly and shining brightly!
“… The Bo… Bone Ablutionary Dan!” Gu Jin-Long’s neck was trembling and he spoke like he had difficulty in speaking. His mind blanked out as he looked straight at the dan cloud permeating in the air.
“Dan cloud… It truly is dan cloud…” Wan Zheng-Hao looked around the cloud and mist in the room. He was astonished. It was like he was watching a gold mountain coming to him.
“That’s right. My master only used the minimum amount of materials he had to produce this supreme Bone Ablutionary Dan Bead!” Ye Xiao smiled proudly.
The next moment, he casually took over the bottle from Gu Jin-Long and put the supreme dan bead back into the bottle. After that, he sealed the bottle.
Looking at the way Ye Xiao did that, Gu Jin-Long and Wan Zheng-Hao’s face quivered.
[How can you be so rude to the supreme dan bead? Do you want to break it?]
Gu Jin-Long’s eyes lit up with feverous glow.
[The Supreme Bone Ablutionary Dan Bead!
I just can’t believe this is happening to me. We truly do not know what we will get to in our lives!]
Gu Jin-Long had been cultivating for so many years. He was truly an experienced and farseeing man. Even though he wasn’t able to match the Xiao Monarch’s prowess, he was still better than all the residents in the Land of Han-Yang. However, even he himself had never seen such a treasure, not even in the Qing-Yun Realm!
He had seen too much of Bone Ablutionary Dan Beads. The Bone Ablutionary Dan Beads for him were something that if it dropped to the floor from his hand, he would never want to bow and pick it up!
However, as of this moment, he had actually seen a Bone Ablutionary Dan Bead of the supreme level!
If there were twin brothers, who were exactly the same in their mental and physical conditions, and one of these twins ate a normal Bone Ablutionary Dan Bead, he would eventually reach the Grade of Mengyuan in his life. And, if the other one ate the supreme Bone Ablutionary Dan Bead, then he would reached the ninth level of the Grade of Daoyuan and would even have the chance to break through the limit of the Qing-Yun Realm!
That was the difference between supreme dan beads and normal dan beads!
A difference like heaven and hell!
Gu Jin-Long didn’t need any Bone Ablutionary Dan Beads anymore as he was stronger than that now. However… if he could use the supreme Bone Ablutionary Dan Beads to raise a group of genius followers… he could certainly become the head of the Sunlight Sect in the future!
When all the strongest disciples in the sect were his followers, the whole sect would beg him to be the hierarch even if he didn’t want to!
[…and if Feng Zhi-Ling’s master is truly able to produce the supreme Nine-rolled Purple Cloud Dan Beads… then the other kind of supreme dan…]
Gu Jin-Long’e eyes were turning brighter and brighter while he was thinking about it!
He was filled with impatience.
As for now, Feng Zhi-Ling might be more important than the Cosmic Hades in Gu Jin-Long’s mind!
“Brother Feng! Brother Feng…” The fat on Wan Zheng-Hao’s giant body was ‘dancing’. He came to Ye Xiao with a face adorned with a fake smile and adulation, “The Supreme Bone Ablutionary Dan Bead. I will bu… buy it from you… I will sell it in the auction. Tell me a price? Give me a number and I will never bargain!”
Ye Xiao looked at this big boss of the Ling-Bao Hall and felt truly speechless at the moment.
[I am just showing off. Who told you I am selling it?
This one is for me, all right? There are only two of this and one of them is already taken by Song Jue. Now this one is saved for myself. I don’t even have one for my girl. How can I sell it to you?!
Well if I have more in the future, maybe I will consider selling some of them. But at the present, you can just give it up!]
“Shut up!” Gu Jin-Long shouted angrily, “Such priceless treasure! How dare you use the word ‘buy’ on it? You are desecrating such a sacred treasure! Didn’t you hear what Brother Feng said… He only has one! How can you make him feel difficult like this?”
Wan Zheng-Hao was terrified that he failed to find a word to speak.
“You have wasted all those years you have lived. How childish! How can you take good charge of Ling-Bao Hall with this!” Gu Jin-Long shouted at Wan Zheng-Hao.
[You fool! Why can’t you be patient… You are acting to in a rush. If Feng Zhi-Ling felt alarmed about us, what then? Apparently, we can not take him down by force. We have to use strategy. You are truly ignorant!]
“That… That is something… something like a gold mountain…” Wan Zheng-Hao spoke like he was sobbing.
He was truly heartbroken at the moment.
He was like looking at a gold mountain, but unable to do anything about it.
As a businessman, Wan Zheng-Hao was nearly freaked out by that feeling…
“Brother Feng, in fact… The problem with the materials is quite easy to solve.” Gu Jin-Long spoke blandly and looked at Ye Xiao with sincerity that he had never shown before in his eyes.
Ye Xiao smiled bitterly,, “Easy?! How?! You see, Brother Feng. First of all, we need many kinds of treasures that could be used as a material to produce the dan beads. Any of them could be rare and priceless. How can it be easy to collect them? Second, to develop the level of the dan beads during the refinement, it requires not only the capability of the dan-maker, but also a way to keep the qi from getting out of the dan beads. To keep the qi from getting out of the dan beads, it requires a lot of spiritual jades. The higher the level of the dan beads we want, the higher the level of spiritual jades we need. We will need to use up a huge amount of spiritual jades to get it done!”
“After all, it needs a massive amount of manpower, materials and money to solve the problem that you think is easy to solve.”
Ye Xiao sighed, “Me and my master… We are men out of the social world… How can we possibly get that much resources?”
While speaking, he was looking at Gu Jin-Long with his eyes full of shame. In his heart, he was thinking, [Well, well… In despite of all the troubles I have today, maybe I can get rich today?
For now, Gu Jin-Long… is quite a wealthy man as I see…]
