Chapter 44: A Gift From Him

Translator: Dragon Boat Translation Editor: Dragon Boat Translation



Ye Ruxue was transfixed and looked over her shoulder.

A white-robed man was slowly walking toward the pavilion by the lake.

He was tall and slender, his clothes fluttering in the wind. His every move contained the Dao spirits of heaven and earth, like a banished immortal descending from heaven to the mortal world.

“Greetings, Miss Ye, and Miss Xiao Yu,” Su Chen said amiably.

His gentle voice was like a spring breeze.

When he was not far away, he heard the conversation between the two of them and already knew who they were.

“Young…Young Master Su, you’re too polite! 1… I’m just a maid…”

Xiao Yu stood on the spot and lowered her head in panic.

Although she could say whatever she wanted in front of Ye Ruxue, she was still very reserved in front of Su Chen.

After all, there was an apparent identity disparity between them.

“Young Master Su, it’s so late. Why are you here?”

At this moment, Ye Ruxue stood up with an odd look on her face.

“I had nothing to do, so 1 walked around. 1 didn’t expect to come here.”

While speaking, he stepped into the pavilion and said with a smile, “Am 1 not welcome here?”

“How could that be?”

Ye Ruxue gave a dazzling smile as if a hundred flowers bloomed.

She stood under the pavilion, her long black hair dancing in the wind. Her light purple eyes were misty, giving people a dreamy feeling.

At this moment, she and Su Chen stood opposite each other, like a celestial couple who walked out of a painting. They were extremely compatible.

“Young Master Su, please take a seat!”

Ye Ruxue pointed at the seats in the pavilion and said.

Coincidentally, she still had a lot of questions about Su Chen.

She wanted to find an opportunity to get in touch with Su Chen, but she did not expect him to come knocking on her door.

She could use this opportunity to ask him how he managed to have such a huge change compared to his previous life.

“Thank you, Miss Ye.”

Su Chen sat down.

Xiao Yu, who originally planned to go to the medicine storehouse to get the medicinal herbs, also stopped doing her own things and went to brew a pot of tea for the two of them.

“Thank you.” Su Chen took the teacup and took a sip.

Ye Ruxue, who was sitting opposite him, was thinking about how she should start.

Wasn’t it a little too abrupt to directly ask him about his cultivation?

After all, cultivation was related to everyone’s foundation. If she asked rashly, even if they were close relatives, he would not be honest about some things.

Not to mention that the two of them were not married yet.

But if cultivation was not the right topic, what should she ask?

Just as Ye Ruxue was hesitating, Su Chen slowly put down the teacup in his hand and asked, “Does Miss Ye know how to refine medicinal pills?”


Ye Ruxue raised her head in surprise and asked in astonishment, “Young Master Su, why did you ask that?”

Su Chen glanced at Xiao Yu and smiled. “1 happened to see the pill formula in Miss Xiao Yu’s hand, so 1 asked out of curiosity.”

“I see.”

Ye Ruxue secretly heaved a sigh of relief when she heard that. Then, a trace of curiosity came over her pretty face as she asked, “Does Young Master Su also know how to refine medicinal pills?”


Su Chen shook his head.

Alchemy consumed too much time and energy, and generally, people who were proficient in alchemy and artifact refinement were not very strong.

Even though such people were very precious to the cultivation world, their ability to protect themselves was still too weak.

If someone boasted that he or she knew alchemy in the future, he would gladly accept it.

However, it was impossible for him to waste time learning alchemy!

“Miss Ye, as the number one prodigy of Qingyang City, you still have time to learn alchemy. I admire you!”

Su Chen said with a smile.

“I only know a little.”

Hearing Su Chen’s words, Ye Ruxue did not give a blissful smile. Instead, she looked at Su Chen suspiciously.

Her intuition told her that Su Chen might have seen through something, but he didn’t point it out.

After all, in Qingyang City, the rumors about Ye Ruxue were only about her talent in cultivation. No one had ever said that she knew how to refine medicinal pills.

She indeed did not know how to refine pills before.

This was a skill that she had obtained from her previous life after her rebirth.

She never thought that Su Chen would be able to tell that it was a pill formula so easily from her messy list of medicinal herbs.

However, it was fortunate that he would never think that she was a reincarnation with just a pill formula.


What Su Chen said next made Ye Ruxue’s heart skip a beat.

“If I’m not mistaken, this pill formula should be used to refine the Sea Transformation Pill, right?”

Su Chen said with a smile.

Ye Ruxue’s expression changed as soon as he finished speaking. There was a flicker of disbelief in her eyes.

How did he know?

Didn’t he say that he didn’t know alchemy?

How could he tell that this was a pill formula?

How could he know the pill formula so accurately?

One had to know that alchemy was something very complicated.

With one spiritual herb missing, one may refine a completely different type of medicinal pill.

Most importantly, many people once took the Sea Transformation Pills, but few of them had ever seen the pill formula.

This was top-secret information!

Many alchemists hid it, afraid that others would know their pill formula and then refine their own unique medicinal pills.

But now, Su Chen was able to accurately tell that this was the formula for the Sea Transformation Pill with just a casual glance.

If this news were to spread out, countless alchemists would definitely fight to take him in as a disciple.

He was simply a prodigy born to refine medicinal pills!

Ye Ruxue’s beautiful eyes darted around as she stared at Su Chen.

At this moment, Su Chen seemed to be covered in a layer of fog in her eyes.

She could not see through him.

“Nothing can hide from Young Master Su’s discerning eyes. This is indeed the formula for the Sea Transformation Pill.”

Ye Ruxue suppressed the shock in her heart and revealed a calm expression.

“What a coincidence.”

Su Chen flipped his palm, and a jade bottle appeared in his hand.

There was a pill the size of a longan in the jade bottle. Su Chen handed it to Ye Ruxue. “I happen to have a Sea Transformation Pill here. I’ll give it to Miss Ye today!”

Just now, he only felt that the medicinal herbs on that piece of paper looked a little familiar.

Coincidentally, Ye Ruxue was in the ninth level of the Qi Gathering Realm, so she probably wanted to use the Sea Transformation Pill to break through to the Qi Sea Realm, so he hazarded a guess.

He didn’t expect that his guess was right!


Ye Ruxue stood transfixed.

She had never expected that Su Chen would take out another Sea Transformation Pill after seeing through the pill formula.

It was as if Su Chen had prepared this Sea Transformation Pill for her.

This was simply too absurd and unbelievable.

“Young Master Su, this.Jt’s too precious.”

Ye Ruxue instinctively wanted to reject him.

However, Su Chen stood up and smiled.

“This is a token of my goodwill. I hope Miss Ye can accept it. It’s getting late. I’ll take my leave first.”

After that, Su Chen turned around and walked away.

Ye Ruxue stared at Su Chen’s back, unable to regain her senses for a long time.

It seemed like Su Chen had specially come to give her the Sea Transformation Pill. Did he know that she needed the Sea Transformation Pill?

Ye Ruxue had mixed feelings at the thought of this.

In his previous life, in order to cultivate, she abandoned everything.

In this life, before she could do anything, Su Chen had given her a Sea Transformation Pill.

Suddenly, Ye Ruxue stood up and shouted at Su Chen’s back, “Young Master Su, please wait a moment!”
