The star beasts put down the materials and carefully said,

“Senior, can we leave now?”

Ye Xiao nodded.

The star beasts immediately turned around and ran as if they had been granted amnesty.

However, they had just turned around when in the next second, several sword lights swept over and instantly pierced through their hearts.

Plop, Plop, Plop…

The major sect star beasts fell one after another, their eyes filled with disbelief.

They seemed to not understand why they had all followed Ye Xiao’s instructions. Ye Xiao mercilessly killed all of them anyway.

“Humans… Are Shameless.”

In reality, Ye Xiao was never prepared to let them off.

Every star beast among them had human blood on their hands. Who knew how many people they had eaten. Moreover, even if they were to be released, they would still continue to kill and eat people in the future.

Those were two races that were opposing each other. There was no need to talk about benevolence, justice, and morality.

Moreover, Ye Xiao was already a strong person. A strong person could do whatever he wanted.

He could kill if he wanted to, and he could not kill if he did not want to.

Everything depended on his own intentions.

Although they had brought the materials that he wanted, similarly, they had also obtained an hour’s worth of survival because of that. Otherwise, they would have died an hour ago.

However, as weaklings, they could only curse the humans for being shameless.

Weaklings did not even have the right to cry.

After killing these star beasts, Ye Xiao activated the Star-picking Hand and sorted all the star beasts.

Peak divine grandmasters like the Green Lightning Bull and the Eight-legged Steed could be immediately refined into a medicinal pill.

As for the others, those with Xiantian seventh-grade cultivation had to be matched with some Xiantian sixth-grade grandmaster star beast.

That way, they could try their best to ensure that the difference between the 21 pills would not be too big.

Next was the distribution of materials.

Among the materials brought by the star beast, there were the 1,000-year-old polygonum multiflorum, the 1,000-year-old ginseng, and the blood lingzhi Ganoderma… There were even some extremely rare materials that were thousands of years old.

Those materials were the best of the best. They might not be comparable to the myriad of purple and red leaves.

However, with so many things added together, the spiritual energy contained within had long surpassed the myriad of purple and red leaves.

After sorting and stacking all the items, Ye Xiao immediately began to use the One Thousand to One pill-refining technique.

That was his first time refining so many pills at the same time. However, with Ye Xiao’s current spiritual energy, it was not a difficult matter.

If it were other alchemists, even if they were extremely powerful alchemists in the nine provinces or even the entire world, they would not have an advantage over Ye Xiao.

There was no other reason. It was only because his spiritual energy cultivation was extremely powerful that he had already reached a state that was close to the peak of the nine provinces.

The other alchemists would at most be able to reach a great grandmaster, which was already very good.

The gap between the two parties was really too great.

The Myriad of Swords to the Origin was executed, and it split into 21 rays of light that connected to the 21 piles of materials that Ye Xiao had already sorted out.

Following that, the 21 piles of materials began to enter the state of purification. All of the impurities within them were removed. After that, all of the essences were extracted and used to make medicinal pills.

That process was a bit long. After all, there were 21 medicinal pills and not just a simple medicinal pill.

As time passed, the 21 piles of materials finally began to change. The bodies of all the star beasts began to gradually shrink and finally turned into ashes.

Then, drops of golden liquid condensed from them.

That was the essence contained within them. After all the essence in their bodies had been absorbed by them, in the blink of an eye, golden medicinal pills began to condense out one after another.

The 21 medicinal pills were like 21 small suns. The golden light they emitted even lit up more than half of the Heavenly Devil Cliff.

The medicinal pills contained extremely powerful and terrifying spiritual energy.

If one swallowed one, one’s cultivation would instantly increase explosively.

However, at that moment, there were a total of 21 pills!

Rumble…

Several bolts of lightning fell from the sky.

After that, the dark clouds quickly gathered. In a short span of ten seconds, a thundercloud condensed in the sky.

Crackle!

The sound of sparks could be heard. Lightning shot out from the dark clouds like a sharp dagger, passing through the Heavenly Devil Cliff and reaching the bottom.

Some of the star beasts that had not run away earlier could not hold themselves back anymore.

Now that even nature had struck lightning, who could withstand it?

There were no more star beasts. Holding onto the hope of luck, they wanted to continue staying here.

Crackle, Crackle…

Rumble…

The lightning from the 21 medicinal pills gathered more and more. In the blink of an eye, more than 60 to 70 bolts of lightning descended every second.

On average, each medicinal pill contained two to three bolts of lightning.

If there was only one medicinal pill, this lightning might still take some time to arrive.

At the very least, it would wait for it to take shape and turn into a solid medicinal pill.

At that moment, Ye Xiao had really gone too far. He actually wanted to refine a total of 21 pills all at once, and all of them were imperial pills!

That could practically be said to be a challenge to the power of laws in the sky.

Hence, it caused so much lightning to descend that time.

The lightning struck the bottom of the Heavenly Devil Cliff and landed on the 21 pills, continuously refining the pills.

One, two, three, ten, a hundred…

More and more lightning struck, and the pills finally took shape, finally forming 21 golden imperial pills.

All the heavenly materials and earthly treasures, as well as the flesh and soul of the star beasts, perfectly fused into the star cores.

The radiance was boundless, illuminating the entire Heavenly Devil Cliff.

Each pill was branded with the power of lightning.

The lightning in the sky had already begun to slowly disappear. In the sky, there were rolling lightning and thunder as if they were waiting for something.

They were already unable to continue attacking the pills because all the pills had already taken shape.

The power of laws was no longer suitable to deal with them.

However, it was as if they could vaguely guess what Ye Xiao wanted to do, so they did not leave.

Instead, they were waiting for Ye Xiao.

Buzz.

All the medicinal pills began to tremble.

That was because their strength had already reached its peak. They had formed their own consciousness and wanted to escape.

Unfortunately, under Ye Xiao’s control, none of them could escape.

They could only continuously emit humming sounds in the air.

There was no other way. When they were still divine-level star beasts, they were unable to escape from Ye Xiao. Now, it was even more impossible.

Ye Xiao glanced at the lightning that was waiting for him in the sky.

Finally, he began to move.

Facing the lightning, he had nothing to be afraid of. If he wanted to become a king, how could he become a king if he could not even do that tiny test?

Ye Xiao waved his hand, and one of the pills was swallowed by him.

Boom!

As the imperial pill entered his body, it immediately let out a mournful cry before bursting apart. It exploded in Ye Xiao’s internal organs and rushed towards all of his meridians.

All of the cultivation techniques in Ye Xiao’s body were activated at that moment.

One after another, lumps of light formed a vortex and circulated wildly in Ye Xiao’s body.

That time, even the Big Dipper’s Grand Mystery and the Undying and Imperishable started to circulate.

That was because, within those medicinal pills, the soul power of those star beasts had also been refined.

The soul power and spiritual energy within were also extremely huge.

After enduring the first medicinal pill, Ye Xiao started to swallow the second time in the blink of an eye. That time, he swallowed two medicinal pills in one gulp.

The third time, he swallowed four medicinal pills.

The fourth time, he swallowed six medicinal pills.

The fifth time, he swallowed eight medicinal pills!

After 21 medicinal pills were all swallowed by him. That enormous energy exploded in his body and directly exploded his body’s meridians, turning him into a bloody mess.

However, Ye Xiao was not afraid at all. He even used his own strength to form a sealed environment around his body to prevent those energies from escaping.

At the same time, he also used the Morning Star Method, Ultimate Healing Technique, and Mending the Heavens to quickly repair his body.

That cycle repeated itself as the spiritual energy continuously washed over him. Very soon, the fresh blood that Ye Xiao had seeped out began to emit traces of golden yellow.

That was the sign of becoming a king.

Crackle!

The lightning in the sky finally could not hold it in any longer! They turned into long dragons and pounced down crazily.

Tens of thousands of bolts of lightning surged, and their momentum overflowed into the sky.

All the bolts of lightning landed on Ye Xiao’s body.

Not only did Ye Xiao not dodge, but he even allowed the lightning to strike his body, helping him begin to temper his body and strive to get rid of the last impurities in his body.

The lightning increased in number, completely ignoring whether Ye Xiao could maintain it or not.

In the end, because there were too many lightning bolts and they were too strong, there was no gap between them and the ground. One could only see a pillar of light falling from the clouds in the sky to the bottom of the demonic cliff!

Any living being that approached this pillar of light would instantly turn into ashes.

Even a divine grandmaster would not be able to hold on for two seconds.

Time passed by minute by minute.

Suddenly!

After 108 seconds, a streak of golden light shot up into the sky from the Heavenly Devil Cliff. With a dragon’s roar, it shot into the clouds.

Boom!

A loud explosion resounded in the sky and all the thunderclouds disappeared.

In the blink of an eye, the sky became clear again.

A figure stood proudly on the clouds with his eyes closed. He opened his arms and felt the immense energy in his body.

At that moment, the surrounding clouds did not seem to dare to oppose him anymore. They lowered their standards and did not dare to float on the same level as him.

It was not just the clouds. When the wind came to his side, it seemed to have stopped flowing. It became silent and did not dare to act recklessly in front of him.

It was as if the power of nature had sensed his terror.

“This… Is the power of the King realm?”

Ye Xiao murmured, the corner of his mouth slightly raised, and his expression was extremely satisfied.

Great!

It was incomparably great!
