Meanwhile, Jared was running toward the Medicine God Sect to get his severe injuries treated.
He wouldn’t have ended up in such a nasty state if he were going against Steinar alone, but having the
martial energy of several Martial Arts Grandmasters made Steinar quite a formidable opponent.
By focusing his spiritual energy on his legs, Jared arrived at the Medicine God Sect in less than a day.
The sect members guarding the door quickly stepped forward to hold Jared steady the moment they
saw him in that state.
As someone rushed off to inform Axton about it, Axton soon came running with Lyanna and several
Everyone was shocked when they realized Jared was all covered in wounds.
“What happened to you, Jared?” Lyanna asked with a pained expression.
“It’s a long story. I’ll tell you guys about it some other time.” Jared then turned toward Axton as he
continued, “Mr. Knox, will you please prepare the herbs required to make a rejuvenating pill? I need to
Axton was hesitant. “But, your condition is…”
“Don’t worry about me and just hurry up! I’ll be fine after resting for a bit!” Jared urged him again.
With that, Axton went off to gather the materials while Lyanna helped him into a room in the Medicine
Jared then started controlling his breathing and slowly healed his injuries by channeling Focus
Technique. His body absorbed all the spiritual energy around him, including those that the draconic
essence had just recovered.
However, such spiritual energy alone was neither enough for Jared to make a full recovery nor
synthesize a rejuvenating pill.
The sky was already dark by the time he slowly opened his eyes. His wounds were no longer visible,
but his body was still somewhat weak.
Jared made his way to the Medicine God Hall, only to realize that nobody was home. The sight of the
Divine Cauldron in the main hall suggested that everyone was out gathering herbs.
While gently caressing the Divine Cauldron, Jared used his spiritual sense on it and detected a
refreshing aura from within.
Unlike most ordinary spiritual energy, this one made Jared feel really comfortable and strengthened his
“Huh? Is there something magical about this cauldron?”
Jared found it rather surprising as he had never inspected the cauldron in detail ever since he got his
hands on it.
All he did was use it to synthesize some pills in the past.
Driven by curiosity, Jared jumped into the cauldron and saw a line of text on the inside.
“The tiger roars in the mountains, and the serpent screeches beneath the ocean. Only by enduring
great pain, can one truly find liberation.”
After reading the text out loud, he was wondering what it meant when a blinding light appeared inside
the cauldron. Jared found himself enveloped by an aura before passing out on the spot.
Jared’s body was suspended in a sea of aura that was cutting at him like blades, but he didn’t feel any
By curling up his body into a ball, Jared broke into a satisfied grin as he absorbed the aura around him.
It looked like he was in a dream, and yet it felt incredibly realistic at the same time.
However, the sea of aura disappeared moments later, and Jared found himself being plunged into a
sea of fire.
The pain from the scorching heat felt unbearable, but Jared couldn’t escape it no matter how hard he
He wanted to scream for help, but no sound came out of his mouth.
As he continued to burn in the fire, his skin started coming off layer by layer, only to regenerate in the
Eventually, the pain got too severe for Jared to handle, and he passed out from it.
After what seemed like forever, Jared was woken up by someone repeatedly calling his name.
“Jared! Jared! Why are you sleeping in here?” Lyanna shouted at Jared when she saw him all curled
up inside Divine Cauldron.
