Chapter – 175 Butian Dan
Long Yu was surely a witty man in giving the meteorite pendant away in exchange for alliance.
Long Yu was sure of the uncouthly man that he had earlier killed having some powerful backers behind him. Otherwise, it would’ve been almost impossible for a person like him to get hold of that meteorite pendant.
The complexion of the old man changed as he pondered over it. Soon afterwards, he said: “Alright. I have no problem with it. The Lu clan would help you with everything that we can do whenever you need us.”
With these words, he pulled out a jade card from his green silk robe.
“This is the jade privilege card of Lu auction house. Whenever you buy anything from our auction house, just show this card at the counter and you will get 20% discount.”
The old man handed the card over to Long Yu and continued speaking: “Moreover, the goods that you have sold to us make up 208,500 crystal coins. As a goodwill gesture, I will pay you an equivalent of 210,000 crystal coins, that is 21 nuclei!”
Obviously, it was impossible to transact such an enormous sum of money through crystal coins.
210,000 crystal coins piled up in a huge bag would definitely not be easy to carry.
For the convenience of the people, another form of currency was used in this continent, known as nucleus. A single nucleus was equivalent to 10,000 crystal coins!
Just like the crystal coins, the nuclei were also made out of heavenly tablets, but the heavenly tablets used in the formation of nuclei were far more powerful and rare than the ones that were used to create crystal coins.
Through these 21 nuclei, if Long Yu got enough spare time, he would be able to comprehend twenty-one different Huangshi level world principles.
Moreover, twenty-one nuclei were just enough to buy some top grade immortality pills!
Long Yu collected the nuclei from the old man and observed that each nucleus was glittering. Some edicts were carved on those translucent nuclei which perhaps indicated the world principles contained in them.
“Mister Lu, do you sell mysterious level immortality pills that cure damaged heavenly arteries?”
Long Yu had enough wealth and power now to be in a position to buy some mysterious level immortality pills.
Long Yu had been trying to find a cure for the injuries that Feng Longsong had received earlier for quite some time. At this time, he had all the resources that were necessary to begin Feng Longsong’s treatment.
Moreover, Feng Longsong was about to visit his wife Liu Yu in the Liu clan mansion. It would be a great thing for Feng Longsong to get cured before he visited his wife.
Until now, Feng Longsong had been watching Long Yu without saying a word.
But hearing Long Yu’s query, Feng Longsong’s complexion changed: “Young Long Yu, I’m afraid even ten nuclei won’t be enough to get you a single mysterious level immortality pill. Why don’t you utilize these nuclei to buy yourself some good immortality pills? I’m sure you would be able to enter Zhenling fourth layer with the help of some good immortality pills.”
“Foster father, rest assured. I know what I’m doing.”
Long Yu said with a faint smile and then looked towards the old proprietor eagerly.
The old Lu Fu certainly knew Feng Longsong. He still remembered the day he had seen Feng Longsong fight along with Long Zaitian and Yu Ruan in the battlefield during his adolescent years.
Lu Fu smiled and said: “Of course, we sell mysterious level immortality pills here. But these pills are being auctioned by someone so we can’t sell them like other trivial goods.”
“At what price does the owner wants to sell those immortality pills?”
Long Yu wrinkled his eyebrows.
From Lu Fu’s words, Long Yu immediately sensed that there was something wrong.
“Actually, damaged heavenly arteries are so hard to cure, and the mysterious level immortality pills are so precious since they couldn’t be found easily.”
Lu Fu continued with a faint smile: “The owner had asked for a base price of ten nuclei. When we will put the pills for auctions, I’m sure the price would go as high as fifty-five nuclei.”
“What if I want to buy those pills right now?”
Long Yu narrowed his eyes.
“It will cost you fifteen nuclei.”
Lu Fu said: “If you don’t want to accept this price, then you can wait for three days when we put the pills for auction.”
These words made Long Yu curl his lips.
The price of fifteen nuclei was quite high.
Even after putting the pills for auction, the Lu auction house wouldn’t get fifteen nuclei from anyone since there would be only a few people who would actually be in need of such pills.
However, Lu Fu was very firm in his saying that if Long Yu couldn’t accept this price, he would have to wait for three days when they organize an auction.
The time for the auction was set to be just before the commencement of seven sect competition, so it was obvious that several powerful and influential people might be present for the auction. It was possible that some people might intentionally raise the price of the pills, and if that happened, the price might go far higher than fifteen nuclei!
“So that’s the price.”
Long Yu thoughtfully said while waving the jade privilege card: “This card entitles me to get 20% discount, so that makes the price 12 nuclei for me.”
Lu Fu shook his head and said: “You will surely get a 20% discount on all the other items that are being sold but not for the mysterious level immortality pills since it is set for auction.”
Long Yu narrowed his eyes: “I thought three nuclei won’t matter much to the Lu clan. Such being the case, I will not sell the meteorite pendant to your auction house. And I don’t need you as my allies either.”
These words put Lu Fu in an awkward position. He immediately said: “Forgive me, Long Yu. I’m growing old and my age makes me so preoccupied with all the formalities that I tend to forget about forging personal relations. Such being the case, I’ll give you the mysterious level immortality pills for twelve nuclei!”
Twelve nuclei was no small amount, but it was acceptable.
For this, Long Yu appreciated Lu Fu.
People with a cultivation level of Zhenling sixth layer would think it would be easy to seize anything from Long Yu, who had a cultivation level of Zhenling third layer.
Although Long Yu might use his nine hidden dragon mark in order to fight with Lu Fu if that was needed, he was afraid what effect might the nine hidden dragon Zhenling would leave afterward.
Soon, Lu Fu sent a girl to fetch a jade box.
“This is the mysterious level immortality pill, Butian Dan.”
Lu Fu handed the jade box over to Long Yu.
Long Yu opened the box to check the contents. A strong fragrance of pills filled his nostrils and made him feel refreshed.
Butian Dan could certainly treat Feng Longsong!
Long Yu happily paid twelve nuclei to Lu Fu. Although he was left with only nine nuclei now, these nuclei were equivalent of 90,000 crystal coins. This was no small amount!
“Foster father, please take this.”
Long Yu gave the jade box to Feng Longsong.
Feng Longsong received the jade box from Long Yu without saying a word. He opened the jade box while he sat with his legs crossed.
“Foster father, as you already know, I bought these immortality pills for you.”
Long Yu said as he sat next to Feng Longsong.
As Feng Longsong began absorbing the immortality pills, Lu Fu left the cabin along with the young girl since he knew they were not needed there at that moment.
Inside the cabin of the auction house, it took Feng Longsong almost an entire day to completely absorb the immortality pills that Long Yu had bought for him.
The mysterious level immortality pill was repairing his damaged heavenly arteries, and gradually, his cultivation level was being restored.
Before getting injured, Feng Longsong had a cultivation of Zhenling fifth layer. Now, with the help of the mysterious level immortality pills, it wouldn’t be long before Feng Longsong would be able to restore his cultivation level.
“Although the pills have repaired my heavenly arteries, the complete restoration of my cultivation level might take some more time.”
Feng Longsong said as he opened his eyes.
The effect of the immortality pills was clearly visible. Feng Longsong’s whole appearance had changed. Before absorbing the pills, he looked like an ordinary martial artist, but now, a strong aura was being released from his body, as if he had returned back to the time before he got injured twenty years ago!
“Butian Dan is really amazing!”
Long Yu beamed with happiness as he could now feel that Feng Longsong was cured. Perhaps his cultivation level would get restored by the next day to Zhenling fifth layer!
When his cultivation level is restored, perhaps he might stand a chance to enhance his cultivation further.
Feng Longsong didn’t thank Long Yu for this gesture because he knew that the very sense of gratitude had no place between him and Long Yu.
“Foster father, let’s go downstairs and buy some more immortality pills for ourselves.”
Long Yu chuckled since he was extremely happy.
Feng Longsong had recovered from his injury and could now enhance his cultivation.
Feng Longsong nodded as they both headed downstairs.
Long Yu wanted to have a look at the immortality pills available in the Lu auction house in the hopes of breaking through into Zhenling fourth layer.
But just when they reached downstairs, Long Yu realized that everyone was busy rushing out of the auction house as if something interesting was happening outside on the street.
“Have you heard? Major General Long Ji of Long clan is going to Liu clan with a marriage proposal!”
“Liu clan? Which Liu clan?”
“Don’t you know? The Liu clan of the golden Pavilion! I had never expected that the Liu clan would make such a great progress!”
“Do you know who has caught the interest of the Major General?”
“They say that he is going to propose marriage to the most talented girl of the Liu clan – Liu Yuan. For a long time, she had been ignoring the repeated proposals from the Major General, but this time he has arrived himself to discuss the marriage personally.”
“Is that the same Liu Yuan whose hair turned white overnight? She indeed is a very stunning woman. She would be a perfect match for the mighty Major General Long.”
Long Yu heard the people talking.
Major General Long Ji of Long clan was going to discuss marriage with Liu Yuan – this was really interesting!
Long Yu could buy immortality pills later, but couldn’t miss witnessing this unusual incident. Moreover, he and Feng Longsong were about to visit the Liu clan anyway.
“Foster father, I think we should go to the Liu mansion first.”
Long Yu suggested.
Feng Longsong looked at Long Yu and smiled: “As you wish, son.”
Not long ago, Feng Longsong used to be worried about protecting Long Yu since he couldn’t practice martial arts. But now, Long Yu had turned into a powerful warrior, so powerful that no one in the entire Imperial city would be able to bully him easily.
Long Yu was finally going to meet his Long clan now!
