In an instant, Meng Qi’s group had unleashed a series of tight offenses. Tengshe sect leader seemed to be caught off guard and was busy dodging the incoming attacks.
Meng Qi watched the battle from her position in the rear line. Her heart galloped away, and her chest seemed to be burning with boiling blood. For a moment, she suddenly understood why so many cultivators preferred to choose either sword or spell cultivation above other paths. Because at this moment, she was full of urges to step forward and fight side by side with her allies.
However, Meng Qi’s mind was still rational. She knew that she was just a Foundation Establishment cultivator. If she stepped forward, not only she couldn’t be a help, she would even become a targeted weakness. Meng Qi took a deep breath and clenched his fists tightly. She must concentrate in protecting herself and should never be a burden.
“Still not do.” Yun Qingyan’s voice rang again.
Meng Qi was about to ask, but soon found there was no need to. The power of the Spirit Severing cultivator was absolute, even enough to crush several Nascent Soul cultivators, whose cultivation base was just one level lower. Blazing flame, gleaming swords, constant tremor from the black tortoise. Amidst the endless barrage of attacks, the middle-aged man in the blue robe was still calm and unperturbed.
Tengshe sect leader slowly lifted up his hand. His finger moved swiftly like a knife, gleaming with the light from a spell. The next moment, a green mist suddenly appeared beside him. The mist quickly expanded and spread towards Ji Wujiong and the group of cultivators.
“Aaah!!” The spell cultivator who used red lotus flame was at the forefront. He screamed and suddenly fell down. “It’s poison!” The man let out his final roar. When his body fell to the ground, it suddenly turned into a ray of light and disappeared.
“This poison is very strong!” Meng Qi muttered. It was potent enough to kill a Nascent Soul cultivator in one touch. Very dangerous!
“Ahhhh!” This time, the ones who screamed were cultivators on Meng Qi and Ji Wujiong’s side. Several Golden Core cultivators, who were clearly farther away, suddenly screamed and rolled on the ground before quickly dissipated into rays of light.
Meng Qi’s face was pale as she tightened her clench on the medical knife in her hand. If only…if only she was stronger, she wouldn’t have to stand here alone, unable to help.
“Meng Qi.” Yun Qingyan’s voice suddenly rang again, “Use Lihuo Fire Array. I will teach you its second form.”
“Eh?” Meng Qi was stunned. Yun Qingyan said again: “Canglang Academy gave you the formula of Cangmingsan Pill. You will refine it for Ji Wujiong now.”
“You can make it in time!” Yun Qingyan said. “Ji Wujiong isn’t completely useless. He can hold on until you finished refining the medicine.”
“But…” Meng Qi still wanted to say more.
Yun Qingyan seemed to guess what she was going to say and interrupted again: “Ji Wujiong is originally a Spirit Severing cultivator, but his spiritual sea is heavily damaged, which reduced his cultivation base. Cangmingsan Pill will be a help to him.”
“Okay.” Meng Qi asked: “How long?”
“One incense stick of time.” Yun Qingyan said confidently. “If you can learn the second form of Lihuo Fire in one teaching.”
“Ji Wujiong.” Meng Qi called suddenly. She gritted her teeth and said, “Do you know Cangmingsan Pill?”
“You have it?” Ji Wujiong turned at Meng Qi and said quickly: “Give me!”
“I need one incense stick of time.” Meng Qi added.
“No problem.” Ji Wujiong quickly understood what Meng Qi meant. A red light flashed in his eyes. He snapped his fingers and turned to face Tengshe Sect leader: “Leave him to me!”
Meng Qi took a deep breath: “Sovereign Qingyan, please give me your guidance.”
“You only have a few seconds.” Yun Qingyan said: “Remember it clearly.”
As soon as his voice fell, an array suddenly flashed in Meng Qi’s mind. The first form of Lihuo Fire Array was the one she usually used to refine medicine. It was simple and easy to control, originally designed by Master for her use.
Meng Qi gritted her teeth and put on all her focus on the second form of Lihuo array in her mind. This second form was much more complex. Meng Qi didn’t dare to lose focus even for a moment and quickly remembered it.
A few seconds was very quick of time, and the array soon disappeared. Meng Qi held her breath and started gathering the aura in her body. She quickly lowered her head and began to draw the second form of Lihuo Great Fire array on the ground. The aura flowed from her hand to her medical knife, directly penetrating the ground. In a blink of an eye, Meng Qi had completed the array.
Meng Qi’s strength was almost depleted. The Lihuo array she previously used was very simple, but this one was much more complex. Her spiritual sea was almost empty. Because of the depletion of spiritual aura, her body even ached a bit. But Meng Qi didn’t care. She stuffed a Beiming Pill into her mouth with one hand and took out her small bronze cauldron with another hand.
Meng Qi quickly took out the ingredients needed to refine Cangmingsan Pill from her storage space item. Fortunately, she had taken a lot of medicinal ingredients from the pharmacy in Fengyu Town, in preparation for the unexpected.
“Sovereign Qingyan.” Meng Qi took out twelve eighth-grade spirit stones. “Is this array correct?”
However, no voice answered her.
Meng Qi didn’t have time to think. She quickly threw the spirit stones onto the array. A raging fire instantly blazed, and the small bronze cauldron was burnt red in no time. Meng Qi sighed in relief and quickly threw in the medicinal ingredients into the cauldron.
The second form of Lihuo fire array was much more powerful than the first form. The fire was fiercer, and the speed needed to refine medicine was much faster. However, the consumption of spiritual aura was equally greater. The twelve eighth-grade spirit stones quickly turned into a mass of white ash.
Meng Qi threw another twelve into the array. After adding spirit stones six times, a strong medicinal fragrance came out from the cauldron.
Meng Qi exhaled slowly.
Finally, one incense stick of time!
