“An Earthly-Level Alchemist? So what?”
Jiang Chu was still confused after hearing this.
What does this have to do with them being deceived?
“The batch of goods we collaborated on is for the Dan Association. As long as we can take this opportunity to establish a relationship with the president of the Alchemist Association, Chu Chu, your dantian can be saved.”
Jiang Yao’s eyes turned, looking at Jiang Chu with intense concern and compassion from an elderly father.
Deceived? He didn’t care. As long as he could really get to know the president of the Dan Association, let alone not making a profit, he would be willing to offer the goods directly.
He and his wife had witnessed their daughter’s pain after losing all her martial arts abilities, felt it in their hearts, but their comforting words could not save their young daughter. The destruction of her dantian was catastrophic to her, and they had searched for every possible elixir but failed to truly repair her dantian.
Watching their daughter’s eyes grow dimmer day by day, they were heartbroken and worried, and they also resented their own inability as parents.
They had used all the Profound-level and Yellow-level elixirs that could benefit the dantian on Jiang Chu, but none worked. Jiang Yao even spent a lot of money at an auction for an Earthly-Level spiritual grass, and after refining it, gave it to his daughter to take, but it still was ineffective.
To truly repair her dantian, only Earthly-Level and Heavenly-Level elixirs would do!
But these elixirs were too rare, and they didn’t even know the recipes, so they couldn’t simply rely on heavy money to seek help from an Earthly-Level alchemist.
Not every Earthly-Level alchemist had the recipe for repairing the dantian, and money was useless.
But Chen Ronglian had this connection.
He knew the president of the Alchemy Association in Danmung City, although they only met through supplying medicinal herbs, it still counted as a connection.
If they could get to know President Ning and offer a heavy reward, perhaps they could get an elixir or a recipe.
Although the hope was faint, it was better than having no direction at all.
“Danmung City is the strongest city in our Qingzhou region in terms of overall strength of alchemists. President Ning, as an Earthly-Level alchemist, has rich experience in alchemy. His experience and personal strength are very strong. If you want to heal your dantian, he is undoubtedly the most hopeful person,” Hu Yingyue nodded. “Chu Chu, as you said, we might be deceived, but your father and I don’t care about that. As long as we can get in touch with President Ning to save you, even if it costs our entire family’s fortune, we are willing.”
“That’s right, we can earn the money again, but your time cannot be wasted.”
Jiang Chu is 16 years old, the best age for cultivation. Her progress in this year could be faster than in three years after turning 30. If this time is wasted, it will be hard to make up for it later.
“No need to go,” Jiang Chu shook her head. “I have a way for the recipe and the herbs.”
“Chu Chu, don’t joke,” Hu Yingyue rolled her eyes, but the beauty still looked beautiful even with her eyes rolled. “The recipe is more expensive than ten thousand crystals, not to mention a recipe to repair the dantian. How can it be easily obtained? Moreover, the herbs in that recipe must be incredibly precious. Our family may look well-off, but it’s not certain that we can acquire all those herbs, especially the main ones that are often rare. Without connections, even a lot of money might not be enough to buy them.”
Jiang Chu hesitated briefly, then decided to tell the truth—―
“I have to tell you, I went out this time for the recipe and herbs, and now there’s a lead. It shouldn’t take long to get them.”
The matter was only known to her and the Qin family, so Jiang Chu was not afraid of being exposed.
She had to find a reasonable explanation for the recipe and elixir, and the powerful, more substantial, and wealthier Qin family was such a way.
“What’s going on, where have you been, and how did you get the recipe and herbs?” Jiang Yao was puzzled.
Hu Yingyue’s eyes slowly moved to Hua Lan and Wu Yu.
Wu Yu had been watching them talk, as she needed to be ready to be summoned at any time, so staring at their lips and reading their words was a necessary task.
Upon seeing Hu Yingyue’s gaze, Wu Yu shook her head very calmly.
She didn’t participate, so she was unaware.
What she knew was only that the young master of the Qin family was seriously ill, and the miss had cured him, so the Qin family was very grateful to the miss.
As for the specifics, she didn’t know.
“Master, madam, I’m not very clear either,” Hua Lan also explained roughly, mentioning the Qin family and the young master in Jiaoye City, but she didn’t say anything else.
The Qin family, the young master?
Jiang Yao frowned, planning to investigate the matter later.
“Never mind, let’s not talk about the formula and the ingredients for now, but the issue of the alchemist alone is a big problem. If we don’t know a skilled alchemist, and we rashly approach them, they won’t even meet us, unless. . . . . .” Hu Yingyue was speaking when an idea occurred to her, and she looked at Jiang Yao, “My husband, if Chu Chu really has a pill recipe that can heal the dantian, could we impress an Earthly-Level alchemist with it?”
In terms of pill recipes, except for some common ones that are worthless, some rare and powerful recipes are extremely valuable, and can even be priceless.
They’re in high demand and low supply!
If there is no pill recipe, and you only prepare the ingredients and crystals, and you have no connections, then it’s a pipe dream to impress an Earthly-Level alchemist. But if you have that recipe, you might be able to use it as a “foot in the door” to get the alchemist to agree.
Of course, the prerequisite is that the alchemist doesn’t have this recipe.
If what Jiang Chu says is true, then they might still have a chance!
“Father, mother, it’s better to rely on ourselves than others. When we don’t have enough strength, even if we cling to an Earthly-Level alchemist, they won’t care about us, and they might even turn their backs on us after taking the pill recipe.” Jiang Chu warned.
She used to be a top-notch person, with countless people begging and pleading to get her to tell their fortune, but did Jiang Chu pay them any attention?
The only ones who could be personally attended to and agreed to tell their fortune were those who met the following conditions――
They were her family and friends, acquainted with her family and friends, strangers but with a prominent background that shouldn’t be offended, or had mutual value.
Besides, getting her to tell your fortune depended entirely on luck.
The principle of seeking a pill recipe is exactly the same.
But the current relationship between the Jiang family and the Earthly-Level alchemist does not seem to meet any of the conditions. This makes their “cooperation” no longer cooperation, but a one-sided plea for attachment, and under this circumstance, they would be lucky if the other party even gave them the time of day.
In fact, something Mother Jiang just said made some sense – using the pill recipe as a foot in the door might indeed impress an Earthly-Level alchemist.
