Shen Fei smiled awkwardly and shook his head. “Mayor Edward, you misunderstand. I just didn’t expect you to choose me as your disciple.”
“I, Edward, have never taken anyone as my disciple after all these years,” Edward said slowly, a trace of desolation in his eyes. “I know that there are many who want to be my disciple.”
Shen Fei was silent, waiting for Edward to continue.
“But their aptitudes were too poor. That’s why I’d rather practise alone than take a disciple,” Edward said with a bitter smile. In the end, he just did not want his disciple to become a burden to him.
“Your aptitude is indeed not bad, but your cultivation method is too overwhelming.” Shen Fei shook his head. “If you can change your current situation, you might have an advantage.”
After hearing these words, Edward was stunned for a moment. Then, he carefully gauges Shen Fei. After hearing Shen Fei’s words, the arrogance in his heart had decreased by quite a bit.
He did not expect that he, the mayor, would actually be “trained” by a brat.
“There’s no need to change anything.” Edward waved his sleeve.
“Do you know that in this world, the more powerful an existence is, the harder it is to control the emotions in their body, thus making them susceptible to demonic possession?” Shen Fei continued to ask.
Hearing this, Edward fell silent.
“Once you’re possessed by a demon, the only result is death, and even your soul will be destroyed. So you must learn to control your emotions. Otherwise, what’s the use of your strength?”
“You’re right. I’ll be careful, ” Edward said. “But, are you sure you don’t want to be my disciple?”
Shen Fei shrugged his shoulders lightly. “I just want to live a peaceful life.”
“Hehe, alright!” Edward shook his head. He took out a storage ring and passed it to Shen Fei.
“The things inside this are yours,” he said with a smile.
“Many thanks!” Shen Fei did not waste any time and immediately took the storage ring. After receiving it, Shen Fei did a cursory check and found a lot of primordial stones.
After Shen Fei left, Edward heaved a sigh of relief. He wiped the sweat from his forehead and looked relieved.
He touched the tip of his nose and thought to himself. ‘This Shen Fei isn’t bad. If he can really become my son-in-law, that would be pretty good.’
As he walked out of the courtyard, Shen Fei bumped into Aloy.
“Shen Fei, weren’t you in the study with my father? What are you doing here?” asked Aloy, her face full of concern.
“Oh! I was just chatting with him about some matters.” Shen Fei did not reveal much.
“Aloy, I still have something to do, so I’ll go back first.” Shen Fei gave her a nod, then turned around and walked out of the courtyard.
Seeing this, Aloy nodded gently as well. “Yes, go back and rest early.”
After Shen Fei bade her farewell, he returned to his residence. Shen Fei took out the pill that Edward left for him.
It had a semi-transparent white liquid inside. Shen Fei swallowed it.
Instantly, Shen Fei’s sea of consciousness was set off by a huge wave. All kinds of images emerged like a tide… It was Edward’s understanding of alchemy techniques.
“How exquisite!” Shen Fei exclaimed.
Although his soul power was strong, he had never cultivated alchemy before. This kind of enlightenment could only be encountered by luck and not sought. If he had not met Edward, he would definitely not have had the chance to see it.
At the same time, Shen Fei also knew why Edward was in such a hurry to find a disciple. He needed a genius of alchemy to share his burden. Shen Fei closed his eyes and tried to comprehend the information that Edward had given him.
Time passed and it was suddenly very late at night. The sky was dotted with stars, emitting lights that illuminated the world.
Shen Fei’s eyes were still closed. In his sea of consciousness, a mystic core was shining with a bright luster. A majestic force seeped into his sea of consciousness, causing his soul to gradually strengthen and become more and more solid, like it was transforming.
Not only that, but a vast profoundness about the ways of alchemy spread out and enveloped Shen Fei’s body. Under the nourishment of these alchemical laws, the impurities in Shen Fei’s sea of consciousness were removed. This made his sea of consciousness pure and flawless, as if it could bear all things.
Suddenly, Shen Fei’s mind trembled, and a series of ripples appeared. A wave of obscure fluctuations swept out like a storm.
This was a strange energy. It was like a mad dragon crossing the sky and cleansing Shen Fei’s soul.
“This is the Pill of Tribulation!” Shen Fei’s heart was shocked by the scene.
After all, ordinary Beastmasters would be able to start their cultivation trials by consuming the Pill of Tribulation. However, the pill would not last long. In the end, it would turn into a ball of golden mist and be integrated into his divine soul.
When the Pill of Tribulation disappeared, his soul strength also doubled.
“As expected of a fifth-tier elixir!” Seeing this, Shen Fei’s heart was filled with excitement at his increased soul strength.
“Huh?” Shen Fei frowned. “Why is there a power being nurtured in my spiritual core?” This puzzled Shen Fei.
“This energy seems to be forming spiritual markings,” Shen Fei muttered.
“No matter what, I have to refine this power first.” After pondering for a while, he sat down cross-legged and calmed his mind.
Two ancient cauldrons appeared. One cauldron was floating in the air, another was floating at the edge of his consciousness. With a single thought, the two ancient cauldrons merged and produced a chaotic mist.
This mist was hazy, and contained a mysterious power—soul strength.
Under Shen Fei’s control, his soul strength poured down onto the ancient cauldron. When his soul strength touched the inner wall of the ancient cauldron, it was as if it had been branded by the soul, and faint golden patterns appeared on the cauldron.
A terrifying devouring force appeared out of nowhere and started to crazily devour the medicinal properties within Shen Fei’s soul strength. It was refining the medicinal power and forming more spiritual markings.
Of course, this devouring power was supported by Shen Fei’s will. Without a will, he would not be able to activate the ancient cauldron even if he had soul strength.
Under Shen Fei’s control, his soul strength continuously poured into the ancient cauldron. The patterns within the ancient cauldron became clearer, and were outlined and formed into runes.
Each rune contained a mysterious power. But suddenly, there was a slight movement outside. It sounded like someone was sneakily approaching.
Seeing this, Shen Fei hurriedly stood up and slowly walked to the door.
“Hey, you guys, shut up.”
At this moment, a man’s voice came from outside. “This time, I’m going to make you die a terrible death, Shen Fei!”
Hearing this, Shen Fei smiled. The voice obviously belonged to Xia’er, but he did not expect Xia’er to bring people along to deal with him.
‘It seems like he’s angry because he lost to me in the match last time and is trying to take revenge.’
Thinking till here, Shen Fei could not help but snort coldly. “Since you dare to provoke me, then you shall have to pay the price.”
He did not flee and let Xia’er and his men approach him.
