“There you go,” said Old Man Ba. “I made an oath never to step out of Northern Border City again for the rest of my life. So, I can’t go back to the imperial capital with you, but the girl inside can.”
“The girl?” Jun Linyuan frowned a little.
Old Man Ba raised his chin proudly. “Yes, and she’s amazing. You have no idea what she can do with her refining skills… I’m not boasting here, but she’s as good as I am, if not better. I would go so far as to say that she’s good enough to be my teacher.”
Jun Linyuan obviously didn’t believe him.
“It’s true!” Old Man Ba snapped. “How can you not believe me?! The girl’s refining skills are unmatched in the Junwu Empire! Anyway, she’s the best refiner I’ve ever met in my life.”
Feng Xun smirked. “Master Ba, can you even convince yourself?”
“I’m not lying!” Old Man Ba was exasperated. Dragging his old steward to his side, he stared at the latter. “Tell them if I’m lying. The girl is better than I am, isn’t she? She gave me instructions for that strengthening pill earlier! How can you people not believe me —”
The old steward nodded with a wry smile. “It’s true.”
Feng Xun snorted. “I don’t buy it. How can someone as awesome as that remain anonymous in Northern Border City, and how come we’ve never heard of her? And it’s a she? Who on earth is this girl? I’m curious.”
On the other side of the door, Feng Wu’s heart nearly stopped!
This was insane. She was refining the Nine Transformation Spirit Restoration Pill, which was more difficult than anything she had refined before… She was working on something beyond her cultivation level while being tormented mentally… It was almost too much to handle all at once.
Old Man Ba was going to blurt out Feng Wu’s name, but decided against it when he recalled how unconvinced Jun Linyuan and Feng Xun were.
“You’re curious now?” Raising his chin, Old Man Ba darted a haughty look at them.
“Do tell.” Feng Xun glared at him. Why did the old man have to make things so difficult?
“Hahaha! You’re curious, aren’t you? Well, I’m not telling you. You can guess all you want.” Old Man Ba gloated. “I promise you that the girl is a Saint-level medicine refiner. As long as you can get her to the imperial capital, she’ll definitely cure the person you want to save.”
The ranking for a medicine refiner went from Junior, Intermediate, Senior, Master, and Grandmaster to Saint…
Old Man Ba was capable enough to establish a sect of his own, meaning that he was a Grandmaster himself. However…
What did he just say? Even Jun Linyuan looked a little shaken. “A Saint-level medicine refiner?”
“Absolutely!” Old Man Ba nodded solemnly. “She’s a very big fish in a very small pond here. A place like Northern Border City will never be enough for her. She’s destined for somewhere as grand as the imperial capital.”
To be fair, Old Man Ba said what he did out of genuine concern for Feng Wu.
If she were to build connections with influential people, Emperor Junwu was definitely at the very top of the list. Jun Linyuan, on the other hand, was second only to the emperor, but would eventually become the top himself… if Feng Wu could build a connection with Jun Linyuan, she would be set for the rest of her life.
Hence, he was going to introduce Feng Wu to Jun Linyuan. After she saved the person Jun Linyuan wanted to save, he would owe her for as long as she lived!
However, Old Man Ba didn’t know about the complicated relationship between Feng Wu and Jun Linyuan…
Listening to the conversation outside, Feng Wu was getting jumpier by the minute.
