Chapter 7 – Divine Tool Sharing
It was personally refined by him and also the only countenance halting pill he ever succeeded in making. Will Master like it?
After reaching Nascent Soul, cultivators could reconstruct their physique, but their complexion would still slowly age. Besides taking countenance halting pills, they could only use spiritual force if they wanted to preserve their youth. However, the latter would cause the body to deteriorate if maintained for a long time, so Master… needed this gift, right?
“What are you dozing off for?”
Yuan Chu suddenly jumped in front of him. The previously tormented butterfly hurriedly escaped and triumphantly circled around her head twice. Encircled by flowers and butterflies, she looked just like a tiny flower fairy full of energy and vigor!
A hint of embarrassment appeared on Ye Chenyuan’s exquisite face. He lowered his head and held out the thing in his hand. He said in a loud voice, “Master, this is a countenance halting pill Disciple made. Asking Master to kindly accept!”
Yuan Chu stared at him, blinking quizzically. “Why are you giving me a countenance halting pill?”
Ye Chenyuan didn’t dare to look at her after she questioned him like this. He only quickly replied, “Disciple owes a great debt of gratitude toward Master but has no way to repay it, so… Disciple just wants to express his good will.”
Seeing how deadly earnest he was, Yuan Chu laughed. “Then why are you giving me a countenance halting pill? Because it’s the most valuable thing you have?”
Ye Chenyuan nodded truthfully. “But one day, I’ll give Master things that are hundreds of thousands times better than this. This countenance halting pill… I was thinking Master might need it. It’s also the highest rank pill I can refine right now, but I will work hard to improve!”
Yuan Chu was beside herself with laughter! She pointed at herself. “You think I need countenance halting pills?”
Ye Chenyuan’s eyes dimmed slightly. Of course. Master was even willing to share this medicine field with him. Why would she be satisfied with this pill…
For a moment, he was extremely ashamed. He tried to hastily take back the pill bottle, but it was snatched away by Yuan Chu!
“Master!” Ye Chenyuan’s eyes followed the bottle, subconsciously wanting to snatch it back. Yuan Chu stood on her tiptoes and lightly smacked him on the head.
“Are you stupid? I’m just six years old. What am I going to do with a countenance halting pill?”
Ye Chenyuan froze in shock! Six years old? How could it be?
Yuan Chu tucked the pill bottle away into her storage space. To tell the truth, that Ye Chenyuan would give her something made her very happy! Even if she couldn’t use it.
She laughed. “My mother was an Astral Realm expert, but she couldn’t advance up until her death. She wasn’t able to find a way to extend her life either. At that time, I was just three years old. She was afraid that after she died I would suffer, so she sacrificed her life to use a secret method to push me into Nascent Soul. If I say it like this, do you understand?”
Ye Chenyuan nodded, but the shock in his heart did not fade.
Master was just six years old. Master was younger than him. Master… also had no other family left. Otherwise, her mother wouldn’t go so far to protect her.
Yuan Chu thought that Ye Chenyuan would feel cheated once he knew her real age. After all, what could you possibly learn under a six-year-old “child”? But who could’ve known that his expression would turn serious as if he made up his mind, and he closed his eyes.
Suddenly, a red pearl of blood flew out from between his eyebrows. The originally grinning Yuan Chu turned solemn. This was not just any pearl of blood but the male lead’s best of three golden fingers: the Sky Pearl!
With one look at her expression, Ye Chenyuan could tell she was very clear about what the Sky Pearl was. Resolutely, he said with one word and one sentence at a time, “Right now, as the master of the Sky Pearl, I share the Sky Pearl with Yuan Chu. Once my body falls and my soul scatters, Yuan Chu will be the Sky Pearl’s official master.”
At his words, a diamond-shaped ring of light flew out of the blood pearl. Yuan Chy just needed to fuse a drop of her heart blood with it and the contract would be complete.
Seeing that Yuan Chu hadn’t moved an inch, Ye Chenyuan was a bit worried.
“Master, once the Sky Pearl is shared, you can hide in it if you are in any danger in the future. There’s also a thousand-year spirit spring in the Sky Pearl. It has many benefits for your cultivation.”
Yuan Chu couldn’t help laughing at how obvious he was being.
“You’re going to reveal your trump card to someone you just met a couple days ago?”
Her expression shed its naivety. The faint smile in her eyes was laced with a fierce deep emotion.
“If I’m not willing to share and I kill you after the contract, what can you do?”
He froze. The truth was that because of his rough experiences, he didn’t trust people easily. He hadn’t told anyone about the Sky Pearl. Even the Wen family, who had always taken care of him, did not know.
But he trusted Yuan Chu a lot. When he thought of how young she was and how she would have to experience no less than him in the future, he couldn’t help but want to do it like this. Even he himself didn’t know why.
Ye Chenyuan shook his head and laughed… His ink-black eyes silently watched her. There was an unintentional gentleness in his eyes.
“… If that’s how it is, then it is my fate. I won’t blame anyone.”
He gesture and the blood pearl contract moved closer to her.
He smiled, asking, “Are you willing to share with me?”
Yuan Chu was lost in thought for a good while. She reached out, but she didn’t release a drop of her heart blood. Instead, she pushed the contract back. The contract did not enter the blood pearl, and it automatically returned to Ye Chenyuan. He looked at her with a dumbfounded expression. He couldn’t understand why she would refuse.
Having the Sky Pearl equaled having countless more lives. She clearly wanted it when he first saw her. Why did she refuse it when he willingly shared it with her?
“Why do you want to give it to me?” Yuan Chu tilted her inquisitively.
Ye Chenyuan frowned. He slowly said, “I used to believe you were at least a hundred years old, stronger than me, and more experienced than me. I didn’t need to worry. But now, I know you’re only six years old…”
“So, you’re worried about me?” Yuan Chu raised an eyebrow and mockingly asked, “Could it be you don’t have the thought of ‘I have a six-year-old master I’m so unlucky’? You’re not thinking about your own future but instead worrying about me?”
How could this kid be so dumb?
“I will become strong!” Ye Chenyuan earnestly said, “No matter if you can help me, I will become strong. And since I already accepted you as my master, you are my most important person. If you don’t drive me out, how could I dare to have any thoughts of disobedience?”
His righteous words made Yuan Chu laugh. That still childish face was full of seriousness, warming her heart. She suddenly felt that taking him as her disciple was quite nice.
“That you have these good intentions for Master already makes me really happy!” Yuan Chu’s eyes narrowed into a smile. She stepped back, and returned to that simple, mindless look, even turning back to lecture him.
