Bai Feng was quickly making his way back home. He stored the intricate box into his pouch, and he couldn't wait to use the pill inside to get rid of his headache.
Fortunately, there were no troubles, and he reached his house with no problems.
He quickly inserted the key into the keyhole of his door and entered before closing the door behind him.
Bai Feng sighed as he directly went to his bedroom and opened his pouch before placing it on his nightstand and taking out the intricate box that he got from Chitong.
He opened it slowly and inside of it. He saw it, the remedy to his headache.
It was a tiny blue-colored pill. That had an intricate design on its front part that depicted a phoenix ready to fly up into the skies, a fire was surrounding the phoenix, and it had its beak open. Seemingly trying to cry out how majestic it was.
The image was rather vivid, and Bai Feng could see a small introduction to the pill on the inside of the box's lid.<
Bai Feng smiled, seeing how Aura and the owl acted. It was almost as if Aura was his cheeky wife and the owl was their hungry child. It was quite a funny sight as Bai Feng- made his way to the table and sat down opposite Aura- After he placed all of the food on the table. The shrimp, swordfish, and other crustaceans had a very tantalizing smell as Bai Feng started to pour the sauce he made onto them. The smell was getting more intense the more sauce was poured, and Aura started to salivate. She couldn't help but want to dig in already, just like the owl did. However, she had some self-control as she waited for Bai Feng to finish preparing everything aesthetically. Bai Feng finished by giving a chef kiss as he had seen Mo Pian do it a few times while they were cooking together. "Well, let's dig in!" Bai Feng started with some swordfishes, which he started to devour at a quick speed, making the owl who didn't finish its meal quic
Bai Feng yawned as he got up from the bed. He had only slept for one hour as his need for sleep had gone lower and lower to the point that his sleeping schedule relied on power naps every 6-7 days. Time passed rather quickly as he went into a daily routine of= eating, accumulating Qi into his body, and going around the sect to familiarize himself more with it. Bai Feng wanted to go to work at the casino more, but the thing was that he wasn't needed there anymore as the other blackjack dealers could handle the few customers that wanted to play blackjack. Since he couldn't work, he decided to explore the sect. For some time, until Mo Pian woke up. This way, he had met with some people that he befriended, but he wasn't sure how honest they were with him. Bai Feng was rather good at reading people, and he realized that they were only hanging out with him for a certain purpose. They didn't seem to have bad intentions towards him, but they weren't h
Bai Feng felt his mouth-watering. As he thought about what new delicacy could Mo Pian has come to make during his closed-door cultivation. It was very tempting to taste a new dish created during moments of enlightenment.What type of recipe could he have come up with?Bai Feng shook his head to clear it before saying:"Before you can make a new dish for me... Why don't you taste a few of my dishes?"Bai Feng's foot kicked the floor beneath him, creating a small shockwave and making the container near the counter open and throw a few ingredients such as fish, shrimp, and other marine life on the counter. Bai Feng did a backflip appearing on the other side of the counter as he took a knife which he skillfully used to cut the ingredients in front of him.Mo Pian whistled as he saw Bai Feng's newly improved skill in cooking. It was a little bit showy, which wasn't Mo Pian's preferred style. But he could see through the show that Bai Feng was putting, a
Mo Pian immediately stopped cooking the moment that Bai Feng got his attention.Bai Feng then told him:"I understand why I'm not reaching a breakthrough even though I have eaten so many dishes as it seems that while you have improved the recipe for this particular dish. It's still not enough for my body.""The explosion of Qi that comes when I eat the dish is something that gives the illusion that there's a lot of Qi in the dish. Of course, for Qi cultivators like you, it may seem a lot and a great improvement from the last dish, but it seems that it isn't the same for me."Mo Pian nodded at the feedback and stopped cooking the same dish as before. He scratched his head and asked:"You still need to breakthrough as you are so close to it, but I don't think I'm inspired enough to create a new recipe that could help you right now."Bai Feng shook his head as he glanced at the crates, which were kept cool and nice in Mo Pian's kitchen.
Bai Feng could hardly open his eyes as Aura materialized in front of him. Her form was transparent as she endured the flames which were running around Bai Feng's form.Because of their connection, Aura had to withstand the flame torture as well. Familiars usually took a quarter of the brunt from the tribulations of their partners. However, that didn't mean the tribulation was getting easier on Bai Feng. Aura just experienced a quarter of the power that was rushing through Bai Feng.But now that she was outside the jewel, the full brunt of the fire was downing upon her. She was a water spirit, so she was supposed to be strong against fire, but a fire in such high amounts of such high quality seemed to make her counter attribute useless.She gritted her teeth as he feeble weak palms approached Bai Feng's flaming body, but Bai Feng shook his head as well as he could while enduring the pain as he opened his mouth to warn her:"You will dissipate if you make d
Bai Feng looked at Mo Pian. Since he didn't have a good sensing ability, he needed to rely on him to see if he could absorb Qi from the atmosphere instead of getting it from food.Mo Pian said previously that not many cultivators eat food at one point as they become strong enough, not needing to do such things.They could practically live like plants.This wasn't a thing that Bai Feng liked about cultivation as he was a gourmet person that enjoyed eating the most in his life.However, cultivating quicker was going to come in handy, and not needing to eat didn't mean that Bai Feng couldn't eat anymore.So he decided to get Mo Pian's help, seeing that he could actually breathe in Qi now.Mo Pian waited for Bai Feng to put order to his thoughts, then Bai Feng said:"Can you help me find out about this?"Mo Pian nodded as he said:"Can you breathe in just like you did before?"Bai Feng nodded and took in a deep breath
Bai Feng wasn't sure where Mo Pian was taking him. After they finished talking about a place where he could find someone to spar with. Mo Pian closed the restaurant and said he had a place to show him.Right now, they were walking along the relatively empty streets of the outer sect.Some people who wore different robes could be seen here and there. They were visitors, but they were in such a low number they could be barely seen. As Mo Pian and Bai Feng took a stroll around the place, they could see that they were the only locals still walking around the sect.No local disciples were walking around, as they must likely be in closed-door cultivation, preparing for the upcoming tournament.The outer sect tournament was a good way for outer disciples to gain the attention of elders of the sect who might think the disciples have something unique about themselves or were diamonds in the rough that they could excavate. Also, the rewards were very good. So even
Bai Feng stood in the left corner near the entrance of the cage, which was now locked. Bijon stood in the right corner leaning on the iron walls of the cage. Bijon was a quite tall man who had scars running from his temple to his cheek horizontally on both sides, but somehow, both of his eyes were unaffected by whatever gave him those scars. They were glaring at Bai Feng from the right side of the cage, green eyes filled with aggression. He wore the robes of the sect, but they were tattered and ripped from place to place. His facial hair was scruffy, and the one on his head was cut short. Bijon also wore a small silver circle earring on his right ear. The referee looked at them as he said: "The fight will start very soon. Have you finished betting?" Most of the people waved the betting slips up in the air. Then they shouted in fervor for the battle to begin. They had greedy looks in their eyes as they looked at Bijon while wai
