Chapter 743: Strange Turn Of Event
Situ Hong's words astounded Tang Xiu. But then he realized that this man probably knew his ident.i.ty as a cultivator. After all, regardless of whether he was the one who sold the talismans needed by the Situ Family or the fact that he killed Jin Sanchi, Jin Sijie, and Daoist Qiankun, as well as the man to be held responsible for the eradication of the eight families and forces from Strange Doors, what and who he was had probably been investigated by the clans under the Strange Doors.
He's afraid of me.
Tang Xiu shot Situ Hong a deep look and could see a burst of fear from his eyes, making him immediately force a smile inside.
At the side, Xue Yu was left astounded and surprised, while Huo Siming was even more dumbfounded. No matter what he thought, he found it unbelievable. He could not think through why would an elderly go as far as empty his pocket to buy such a precious fruit and then gift it to the others in vain? The most ridiculous thing was that he seemed to be afraid that the other party would not receive it and even spoke in an apologetic manner.
As for Black Widow, she was tongue-tied and dumbfounded with a disbelieving expression cast on her face. She could hardly believe her ears, for this man was the most honored ancestor, a high ranking member of the Situ Family. To her, he was an aloof and lofty figure, and yet, he spoke to Tang Xiu in such an obsequious and humble manner. What was the most unacceptable fact for her was that this old ancestor of the Situ Family seemed… afraid of this young man in front, and even tried… to fawn upon him?
What is happening here?
Is it possible that there is a figure in China who could make such a character to dread him, despite the status held by the Situ Family and the ability possessed by their old ancestor?
For fear that Situ Hong was muddle headed by his aging brain, Black Widow immediately reminded after coming back to her senses, "Elder Situ, Senior. Are you not mistaken? He…"
"I'm not muddleheaded nor I'm mistaken in recognizing him." Situ Hong categorically said. "My treatment towards Grandmaster Tang a while ago was bad, a big mistake that I must correct by myself. Hence, I must compensate Grandmaster Tang with this fruit."
With that said, he strode forward to Tang Xiu's front and handed over the Singular Recherché Fruit with both hands, saying, "Grandmaster Tang, please don't stoop to my level of ignorance and forgive me. I sincerely admit my mistake and am willing to correct it. Please accept this fruit as a token of my apology and give me the opportunity to make up for my mistake."
Tang Xiu was at a loss whether he had to cry or laugh as he looked at Situ Hong. He could not refuse it since the old man already said such. He received the Singular Recherché Fruit and then said with a smile, "You're Situ Hong, right? Those from the Situ Family are indeed good people. They can make me satisfied every time. Alright. I accept this Singular Recherché Fruit."
Situ Hong looked a bit joyous and sincerely said, "The pleasure and honor is mine. By the way, it should be noon shortly, may I ask whether I can have the honor to invite you to lunch, Grandmaster Tang?"
Tang Xiu thought for a while before shaking his head and said, "I can't. There's something I need to tend to, so I can only pa.s.s your lunch invitation. However, I'll send you a big gift on the account of this Singular Recherché Fruit. You'd better go to Hong Kong half a month later to see Li Juren. I'm sure you can have a good harvest then."
Situ Hong looked dull for a moment. He also knew Li Juren and had a bit of friendship with him. Although he did not know what kind of big gift Tang Xiu would give him, he still respectfully replied, "I will visit Li Juren in person by that time."
Tang Xiu nodded in response and then bade his farewell before taking his leave with Xue Yu. Their purpose in coming to the medicinal herbs market was for this Singular Recherché Fruit, to begin with. Now that they had obtained, he did not want to stay here any longer.
Inside the office.
Situ Hong did not rush to leave. There was a relieved expression on his old face, like a heavy burden had been unloaded from his shoulders. Even the wrinkles on his face stretched out and a smile climbed up his face when he sat back on the sofa.
"Elder Situ, I don't understand," said Black Widow with clenched teeth after taking a seat.
Huo Siming was similarly baffled and echoed, "I don't understand either. I know that Tang Xiu is the young divine doctor that recently appeared in the Chinese medical world and I also have a bit of admiration toward him. Despite that, though, given your status and ident.i.ty, I still can't think through why you acted so…"
"So cautious? So respectful? Or so flattering?"
Situ Hong glanced at him. The smile on his old face did not change as he spoke, "He's not someone worthy for me to act like this if he was really just an ordinary person. But exactly who is he really, then? The young divine doctor? Hahaha… how honorable and to what degree his true ident.i.ty is is not something you can ever imagine. Alright, forget all this. This is something you had better not know about. Shortly put, just remember that you must never offend him in the future. Best if you can see him as a little ancestor…"
Huo Siming snorted in disdain inwardly but did not refute Situ Hong on the surface. He was just a medicinal herbs trader and an old man already, but it was unlikely for him to be skinless and unabashed like Situ Hong.
Other than that, was the Situ Family famous? He knew a lot of prominent families from various provinces, but never once had he heard of a notable family with the Situ surname.
Black Widow paid attention and attached great importance to Situ Hong's warning nonetheless. She firmly nodded and looked toward the door with a somewhat complicated expression. She knew Situ Hong's status in the Situ Family. The man could even make the people from the Situ Family to obsequiously smile at him in response to his casual words. Despite his highly respected and honorable status in the Strange Doors he still had to be respectful before him?
But then again… exactly which sacred being was this Tang Xiu?
In the medicinal herbs market.
Tang Xiu planned to leave directly, but then Xue Yu said that she must buy some additional medicinal herbs for the medicated diet supplements, so he had to follow her seeking them in each store and stall to buy it. In just half an hour, he saw Xue Yu buying the supplemental medicinal herbs and spending more than 270 thousand yuan.
What a spendthrift! Tang Xiu could not bear but secretly shake his head.
Eventually, when the last medicinal herb Xue Yu bought was wrapped, she then said with a slightly regretful expression, "I have bought all the medicinal herbs needed to make this medicated diet. But it's a pity this place is not in the Miao region, else I would have obtained the most important supplemental herb, ginseng, rather than the artificially cultivated common ginseng."
"Tell me, young lady, do you know the price of a wild ginseng?" Tang Xiu forced a smile. "Let's take the Millennium Wild Ginseng for instance; you won't be able to buy it without preparing nine digits. You told me before that the Singular Recherché Fruit is valued beyond nine digits. So, added with the Millennium Wild Ginseng and the other supplemental herbs, you would have to spend 200 to 300 million yuan just to make one medicated diet alone. This… isn't this just wasting money?! Even the richest man in the world won't be able to withstand the way you toss him over and over again."
Xue Yu only smiled in response. Though both her hands carried a lot of bags, she went to Tang Xiu's side to get closer and smiled lightly. "The medicated diet I'm about to make for you this time is not the same as the usual diet I give you. It is made based on the record written by my family's ancestors. According to it, this medicated diet will be like a panacea elixir and give enormous advantages to the person who takes it. I'm afraid that even I myself can't drink much even if I want to."
"Why?" Asked Tang Xiu, baffled.
"My body can't take on the medical efficacy, that's why," said Xue Yu.
Tang Xiu's eyes lit up. He gave it a thought and then resolutely said, "Since you really want to make a perfect medicated diet, then I'll follow your intention. I have a Millenium Wild Ginseng. I'll give it to you after we got back to the apartment."
"Really?" Xue Yu's expression greatly changed and asked with joy.
"Of course, it's real!" Tang Xiu snappily replied. "When have I, Tang Xiu, ever lied? Just take it easy, will you? You can only use a little bit of this Millennium Wild Ginseng! Besides, it's quite difficult to obtain wild ginseng nowadays. Finding it can make your hair erect due to distress."
Four hours later.
At the Tomson Villa's apartment. Although Tang Xiu was sitting in the living room, the strong scent of medicine fluttered about and filled the entire hall. Be it back in the Immortal World or after returning, he had consumed quite a lot of medicated diets of every kind. But this time, just the scent alone had already aroused his appet.i.te. Something that rarely happened to him.
"Alright. Wash your hands and have it."
Xue Yu came out of the kitchen with an ap.r.o.n and a purple ca.s.serole in her hands. When she came to the dining room, she carefully opened the lid of the purple ca.s.serole while Tang Xiu washed his hands. A mellow and fragrant scent of medicated diet wafted about in the room very fast. After putting it in front of Tang Xiu, she quickly said, "You're a cultivator, so you're very strong. Do pay attention after you drink it to not ignore the efficacy and energy contained inside this medicated died because of the flavor."
Tang Xiu just smiled and didn't pay her words any mind. Just as he prepared to pick up the bowl and drink it, he saw Xue Yu taking a small spoon of medicated diet from the ca.s.serole and then used her pink tongue to lick it with a cautious and careful manner.
That's right! She's licking it.
Tang Xiu had been used to the serious and cold Xue Yu. Now that he saw her appearance of using her sensual pink tongue to lick the medicated diet, an unusual sense of alluring feeling and even a strong impulse burst out inside him and made his lower abdomen feel hot.
I'll be d.a.m.ned!
Tang Xiu hurriedly lowered his head and silently chanted the "Heart-fire Cleansing Art" to suppress the heat down there. At this moment, drinking the medicated diet was the most important thing to do. After all, even though it was less than two bowls, this medicated diet had burned 200 to 300 million yuan; a large amount of money.
What a luxury!
Regardless, drinking it made Tang Xiu feel the pinch. After he swallowed it, a mighty torrent of hot sensation instantly burst open. It was as though it had turned into thousand strands of heat, like a tidal wave that rushed to his limbs and bones.
"Drink it up quickly, Tang Xiu. The efficacy will leak away greatly once the lid is opened. The earlier you drink it, the more of the efficacy will be retained," Xue Yu looked up and reminded Tang Xiu. She finally stopped licking the medicated diet after carefully sipping a mouthful of it.
Tang Xiu looked dull and immediately gulped down all the medicated diet in the bowl. There was a worried look on Xue Yu's face as she directly poured the remaining medicated diet in the purple ca.s.serole into her half-filled bowl, and gulped it down into her stomach.
After Tang Xiu finished it, that was the only sensation he felt. Not only did he feel the heat on his skin, he felt hot all over his body, and even his internal organs were also as though being wrapped by the dreadful heat.
At this moment, despite how tough his willpower was, Tang Xiu still left dizzy by the sudden burst of medicinal power as he felt that his whole body seemed to have to become a melting furnace.
Chapter 744: The Equilibrium and Harmonization of the Yin and Yang
Tang Xiu clenched his teeth and circulated the energy with the Heavenly Art of Cosmic Genesis. He was suddenly astounded, as the burst of medicinal force from the medicated diet was dozens of times from what he imagined. Even all the medicinal pills he had refined until now combined could not be compared to the medicinal force from this medicated diet.
However, that was not his most shocking discovery. The most shocking one was that this medicinal energy turned out to have absorption effect as well as it gathered the world spiritual qi from all directions, welling up around him and then was forcibly sucked into his body. Even the sea of stars in the cosmos above the dark sky had its multicolored lights vibrating as a torrential stars' energy descended down like the surging ocean waves and was constantly being attracted and devoured by him.
"This sort of power is…"
Tang Xiu went all out to refine it. Unfortunately, his speed could not keep up. Whether it was the potent efficacy contained in the medicated diet, the Heaven Earth Spiritual Qi and the stars' energy, it was like the river water that burst through the dike as they rushed inside his body's meridians, surging up in his muscles, blood, internal organs…
In his Dantian, the black hole devoured it slowly and then went faster, gradually forming an energy vortex column that constantly unleashed a huge sucking force to swallow it into the black hole.
Xue Yu was sitting in front Tang Xiu with the bowl in her hands. Not only was she affected by the medicated diet, but she was also worried about Tang Xiu drinking too much of it. She was not a cultivator, to begin with. Even though Tang Xiu had imparted her a cultivation technique, she had yet to sense the flow of qi at all.
However, at this moment, she could clearly feel that there were countless energy surges in all directions, which caused the qi flow in the dining room to turn unstable, while the blazing heat wave exuded from Tang Xiu along with his bursting out aura caused her to shudder.
While holding the bowl, she could only watch helplessly when the clothes on Tang Xiu's body turned into ashes in an instant. She could see his skin turning redder and his hair faintly emanating scarlet light, even the firm manhood on his lower body made him look especially savage.
She was unaware that Tang Xiu had already fallen into an extremely dangerous situation at the moment, because of her medicated diet… or a special energy contained in it had brought great trouble to Tang Xiu. Though this sucking force that absorbed the energy was slightly worse than the sucking force of the black hole, Tang Xiu's body now was absorbing various energies, while his body was somewhat unable to support it.
Tang Xiu's body seemed to begin trembling. He wanted to separate the Heaven Earth spiritual qi and the stars' energy, but the special force contained within the medicated diet practically rendered his ability to control it null. Right as he almost reached his limit, a flame suddenly appeared inside his heart, and shortly after, a golden flame appeared in his lungs, a cyan flame in his liver, and a yellow flame in his spleen.
These were Flame Seed Substances, corresponding to the Fire of Five Elements.
Even though Tang Xiu had encountered disastrous events countless times, few of them could make him desperate. But at this moment, desperate thoughts came to him.
Appear should the Divine Fire of Five Elements, offering sacrifice shall the G.o.ds and Demons to the Heavens.
It was a widely circulated famous sentence in the Immortal World and the Demons Realm. Meaning that once a cultivator had this Divine Fire of Five Elements within his body ignite at the same time, he must use his own soul to pay homage to the Heaven and Earth; even the G.o.ds and Demons were no exception. This kind of sacrifice offering was akin to have his soul erased and scattered, to be integrated into the Heavenly Dao laws. It would then be dissipate and exist in another form of existence for eternity.
"I'M NOT WILLING!!!"
Tang Xiu roared with his soul furiously. But the stars' energy and the Heaven Earth spiritual qi that poured into his body not only did not weaken, but increased instead. The special energy produced by the medicated diet inside his body became thicker and produced stronger sucking force.
He used to be vexed with the existence of the black hole that appeared in his Dantian since it devoured too many treasures. It even gobbled up the Heavenly Path Universe Tree and the divine sword he valued and attached great importance to. But at this very moment, he felt that the devouring force of this black hole was far from enough. He hoped its devouring force would become stronger, and would be best if it could cleanly devour the ever-increasing Heaven Earth spiritual qi and stars' energy inside his body.
Suddenly, Tang Xiu's complexion tremendously changed and his body trembled even more.
He found that the special energy contained in the medicated diet was no longer purely absorbing the Heaven Earth spiritual qi and stars' energy, but the various energy in the atmosphere instead, as they began to be sucked into his body. Along with the ever-increasing intensity of the burning Divine Fire of Five Elements, the speed at which the various energies penetrated into his body was getting faster and faster.
"Is it adding fuel to the flames?"
Tang Xiu couldn't help but mourn inside. He was unaware that all the hair on his body had already turned into ashes, his body turned scarlet, blood vessels and tendons became clearly visible—twisted and turned like earthworms.
Just as Tang Xiu fell into despair, a dark ancient and vicissitude-filled aura suddenly appeared in his soul sea out of thin air. The two golden ancient runes exuded a radiant glow and gradually dissipated as the golden light spread. Tang Xiu did not know what those two runes were, because he had never seen them before. But he somehow knew the meaning contained within them: Yin and Yang.
"What does it mean?"
Amid his desperation, hope emerged inside Tang Xiu's heart. He had come across such dark ancient aura and runes before and therefore knew that it was a reminder prompted by his Heavenly Art of Cosmic Genesis cultivation. He had also learned and attained some depths on the Yin Yang concept. After the brief confusion, a line written in the Tao Te Ching appeared in his mind: "The Dao begets Unity; Unity begets Duality; Duality begets Trinity, and Trinity begets myriads of things. Everything has the Yin in and contains the Yang, for they are in harmony."
"Does it mean… the harmonization of Yin and Yang?"
Ecstasy birthed inside Tang Xiu, but then vanished into nothing in just a few seconds. He had already sensed and realized the situation inside his body. The blazing ignition of the Divine Fire of Five Elements was caused by the excessive burning of Yang Fire, while the Metal, Wood, Water, Fire, and Earth were the Dao of Five Elements which existed side by side and complemented each other. While his body was indeed the sh.e.l.l of Yang Qi, only Yin Qi could destroy the Divine Fire of Five Elements, and the only way to resolve his predicament was to harmonize the Yin and Yang.
But… from where can I get Yin energy?
No! There's one!
Tang Xiu, who was frantically revolving his Primal Chaos Force suddenly opened his red eyes. His vision then fell on Xue Yu who still held the bowl, yet with a face devoid of color, anxious, and full of worry.
The two words were squeezed out of Tang Xiu's mouth, but his voice was exceptionally hoa.r.s.e.
"How can I help you?" Rapidly asked Xue Yu.
Tang Xiu gripped his fists tightly. There were looming cracks on his fingers and the back of his hands. A few words then leaked out from his throat again, "Be… my… woman…"
As his voice faded away, he instantly appeared in front of Xue Yu, instantly picked her up and hugged her. The moment he entered the bedroom, the clothes on Xue Yu's body were torn into pieces. In a flash, the panicked and horrified Xue Yu was stark naked, as she then felt pain from her lower body.
The soaring spurt of the moment and the trembling!
Tang Xiu felt a chilling energy transmitting from her lower body into his own. His mind was still intact, but he had to exhaust all the strength he had to say, "Circulate your cultivation!"
Xue Yu was already suffering and miserable beyond description as she never expected that her chast.i.ty would be taken away by Tang Xiu at this moment. Although she had prepared herself mentally for this occasion, the feeling of loss was still there, accompanied by a painful sensation. Tang Xiu's voice was not loud, but she could clearly hear it. She suppressed the pain and began to try perceiving the qi flow inside her body according to the cultivation system Tang Xiu imparted to her.
Xue Yu was surprised to find that just at the moment she began to perceive the qi flow, a strand of heat current came from her lower body. Furthermore, along with the manipulation of her thoughts, she began to control that hot current to flow through her meridians according to the cultivation technique's circulation route.
After the hot current flowed to the first clogged acupoint, it directly steamrolled forward forcefully and even broke through the blocking grayish matter that clogged that acupoint to enter the next narrow meridian.
Pain! Pain! More pain!
Xue Yu was almost drowned and succ.u.mbed to the pain. She felt like she was a lonely boat in a rough ocean. The pain came repeatedly, the heat was constantly expanding, and kept dashing through the acupoints based on the circulation route of the cultivation technique.
Time flew by.
Xue Yu felt like she pa.s.sed a day as if it were a year, wandering about in pain and soon nearly reached the limit of her willpower. Suddenly, there was a rumbling bang as her whole body started to convulse. The heat waves seemingly blasted like a volcano eruption as it surged from her lower body and into the rest of her body. But at this moment, all the clogged acupoints in the course she needed to circulate her cultivation technique were opened and connected to form an entire Heavenly Circuit.
The pain gradually died down under the rushing boiling heat, replaced by an unspeakable comfort that slowly covered her whole being. That kind of comfort was a feeling she had never experienced in her life. Comparing it with the sensation she felt just now was akin to comparing Heaven and h.e.l.l.
The wonderful sensation aroused her greed and fascinated her.
At this moment, she suddenly had the thought to never awake if she could indulge herself in this comfort for eternity.
She was unaware, however, that a faint glittering thread of True Essence began to form amidst the boiling heat, neither did she realize that another special energy was formed into a special energy substance in a liquid state after quietly fusing with her True Essence. With the pa.s.sage of time, this liquid substance increasingly became more abundant while the meridians in her body turned wider, and its channel's walls turned more resilient.
The dim light of the night finally came.
The big bed was not shaking anymore, and the redness of Tang Xiu's body had faded away. The Divine Fire of Five Elements inside his body had already been extinguished, and even his faintly cracked skin had recovered to its previous state.
Tang Xiu crazily controlled the circulation of energy according to the Heavenly Art of Cosmic Genesis. He did not even have the energy to observe the situation inside his Dantian. All his mind was linked with his whole being. Amidst the rapid flowing Primal Chaos Force, he was not even aware of the situation inside Xue Yu's body.
He was only aware of one thing. That was, the Great Heavenly Circuit of his cultivation inside his body and Xue Yu's had formed a perfect cultivation technique circulation route. This was a whole nother level of change, which was formed under the equilibrium state of Yin and Yang.
