When Shrimpy was thrown into the Black Turtle Constellation Wok, its heart was in turmoil.
The boiling water was extremely spicy and after the Abyssal Chili Sauce was added, it became even spicier.
Even Shrimpy had no desire to go crazy inside the wok. With a splashing sound, the boiling hot water splashed everywhere. Shrimpy jumped out of the water and its golden shell was stained red with the spicy broth.
Bubble bubble bubble...
The Heaven and Earth Obsidian Flame burned below the wok and the spicy broth was brought up to a rolling boil. Steam rose into the sky continuously.
In the distance...
Mu Bai and White Demon Jiang Ling were stunned.
When the cover of the Buddha Jumps Over The Wall Soup was opened, the aroma filled the air. It assaulted their noses and their face became twisted.
Supported by his valiant mental strength, Mu Bai didn't allow himself to be distracted by the smell. However, he cried out in his heart. These two shameless fellows! They kept on using strong fragrances in order to mess with him! Were they trying to cause his furnace to explode? Mu Bai narrowed his eyes and his heart started to tremble.
"This is the true public enemy of the alchemists!"
Jiang Ling's heart lurched and she sucked in a cold breath. The fragrance in the air caused her to become distracted.
The dense medicinal fragrance emitted from her high-grade elixir was actually overwhelmed by the aroma coming from the chef's dish. It was something really incredible!
The audience broke out into deep discussions. The aroma of the Buddha Jumps Over The Wall Soup was originally extremely tempting. As the most expensive dish in Bu Fang's restaurant, it didn't matter if it was the taste or the smell. There was no doubt that the Buddha Jumps Over The Wall Soup took the top spot.
Not to mention the fact that Bu Fang didn't use ordinary ingredients to prepare the Buddha Jumps Over The Wall Soup. The ingredients were a grade higher than the ones he usually used to prepare the Buddha Jumps Over The Wall Soup. As spirit energy started to fill the area, everyone became intoxicated.
"The dish prepared by the black horse chef smells the best..."
"I am completely infatuated with the aroma. The pill fragrance cannot be compared to the aroma of the dish!"
"Didn't you say that you were captivated by the fragrance from the pill?"
The audience members narrowed their eyes and they immersed themselves in the aroma of the Buddha Jumps Over The Wall Soup. There were many people who actually started to swallow mouthfuls of saliva. They were extremely impatient as they couldn't wait to taste Bu Fang's dish.
White Demon Jiang Ling sucked in a cold breath and her true energy started to fluctuate. Her attention once again returned to her alchemy furnace and the dark green flame had already reached its peak. As the medicinal liquid rolled around in the furnace, Jiang Ling started to coagulate her spirit pill.
Both Pill King Mu Bai and White Demon Jiang Ling, when compared to ordinary alchemists, were extremely strong. Their resistance to temptation was much higher.
After they stabilized their hearts, they started the final stage of their refinement process.
"Don't jump! You should cherish the chance I gave you! Enjoy yourself Shrimpy!" Bu Fang looked at Shrimpy who was jumping out of the wok non-stop and said as the corners of his lips curled upwards.
He didn't expect that Shrimpy's reaction would be so explosive. It was completely out of his expectations.
Shrimpy's eyes rolled around and its many legs started to wriggle around. It seemed like a spring as it continuously jumped out from inside the pot before falling back inside.
Its golden body had already been covered by a layer of red lines.
However, as it jumped around, Bu Fang could see that the golden glow on its body was slowly diffusing into the broth.
It caused the boiling spicy broth to emit a kind of unique flavor.
Red colored waves of spicy broth rolled around in the wok and the fragrance filled the plaza.
A shiver ran down the spine of the audience members and their eyes instantly widened when they smelled the spicy fragrance invading their noses.
As audience members who had been assaulted by a spicy aroma before , all of them were reluctant to suffer twice. They all quickly covered their mouths and noses as they stopped breathing in the spicy aroma.
There were some people who didn't manage to cover their mouths and noses in time. When the spicy aroma assaulted their noses, their eyes instantly became red and bloodshot. Their faces flushed and tears streamed down their cheeks.
This scene seemed somewhat familiar...
The head judge's nostrils flared and he stood in front of Bu Fang's golden platform. A notion appeared on his heart.
In the next instant, a red hot spicy aroma charged at him and crashed against his face.
At that moment, there were ten thousand shrimps jumping around in his heart.
He was pulling this stunt again! It was the spicy flavor again!
The head judge hurriedly retreated a few steps and his eyes were completely red. Tears started to fall out of his eyes.
He was so depressed that he started to cry. He kneeled on the floor as he appeared to be a grieving little child.
Mu Bai felt as though he joined a fake competition. That was because he felt tears streaming down his face. As the red-colored aroma slowly drifted toward him, he became unable to hold back his tears.
In the distance, White Demon Jiang Ling also had red eyes as she focused all her attention on the coagulation of her pill.
Mu Bai and Jiang Ling were indeed worthy of their reputation. They were able to remain unaffected by the shameless use of the spicy aroma by the public enemy of the alchemists. They continued to refine their pills with steady hearts.
They were the real geniuses among the alchemists!
At that moment, the White Demon's spirit reached the peak and her white hair fluttered around behind her. The neat chains which were made from true energy behind her started swaying around behind her. The glow on the chains became brighter and brighter.
Boom boom boom!
A wave of formless pressure started to continuously spread out.
Her alchemy furnace started to tremble and it seemed as though a resplendent light was born from inside the furnace.
Dense pill energy gradually filled the area.
White Demon Jiang Ling's pill was about to be completed!
Mu Bai was also at the last stage of his refinement process. Although he experienced constant distractions, he managed to hold out till the end. The elegant facial expression he wore before the competition started had already turned distorted.
He felt somewhat depressed. It was the first time he felt such grievance when refining a pill. However, he was going to complete his pill no matter what happened.
A brilliant light flashed in the Nine Star Furnace and a ball of dense gas gathered on top of the furnace. It was a sign that his pill was about to be formed. Mu Bai was about to coagulate his pill as well.
The spicy aroma in the air finally started to disperse and it became much weaker than before.
The audience members were extremely agitated as they looked at the stage. It seemed as though the competition had reached the part which caused everyone to become nervous.
The elixirs which were refined by the alchemists were about to be completed. Everyone's attention was on Bu Fang, who was still cooking.
However, looking at Bu Fang, it didn't seem as though his dish was about to be completed.
As the wind blew across the stage, Bu Fang's Vermillion Robe slightly fluttered behind him. The fiery-red vermillion robe looked like a phoenix spreading its wings as it flapped behind Bu Fang. It was an eye-catching sight.
Bu Fang was extremely calm and his mental energy constantly fluctuated. It controlled the flow of true energy in the Black Turtle Constellation Wok.
Shrimpy was no longer jumping around in the wok. Instead, it flipped itself over and slowly drifted around in the Black Turtle Constellation Wok. The noodles which were in the wok emitted reed colored bubbles.
A burst of intoxicating aroma drifted out from inside the wok.
As Bu Fang controlled the spiritual energy inside the wok, He continued to pour elixirs which were in powdered form into the wok.
Along with the circulation of the spiritual energy, a gust of sweet and spicy aroma came out from the wok.
Bu Fang sucked in a deep breath. There was an indescribable aroma as the sweet and spicy smell fused with each other. It was extremely tempting. Bu Fang's heart suddenly started to itch. It was no wonder that this dish was so famous in his previous world! He felt as though his saliva was about to pour out of his mouth. Licking his lips, he placed the finishing touch on his dish.
However, all of the audience members were suspicious. They didn't understand what Bu Fang was doing at all. They didn't know what he was cooking this time.
Could it be a new dish?
That didn't seem right. He prepared the Buddha Jumps Over The Wall Soup... Many of the audience members could recognize that dish.
Even though they didn't understand what he was doing, there was a trace of anticipation in their hearts.
Waves of energy started to roll around and a terrifying wave of spiritual energy fluctuation started to spread out from the stage.
Mu Bai's hair was floating in the air and true energy waves were emitted from his body. The three chains behind his body were swaying continuously.
The nine stars on the Nine Star Furnace glowed with an extremely bright radiance.
The light emitted from the nine stars seemed to be charging toward the sky. It was as though a starfield had appeared beside his body as light revolved around him.
A sharp cry resounded through the sky.
White Demon Jiang Ling's refinement process was complete as well. A green radiance filled the entire area and rippled through the surroundings.
Her white hair was floating behind her and there was an expression of deep excitement in her eyes.
Thump thump thump.
The sound of something banging against the sides of the furnace could be heard and everyone's hair stood on end.
It was as though the elixir within the furnace was about to come to life!
Above the stage, the several grandmasters sucked in deep breaths.
"Incredible... Pill King Mu Bai and White Demon Jiang Ling are indeed the genius alchemists of our Pill Palace!"
"One of them has the Palace Master's Nine Stars Furnace. The other wants the lazy old man's Spirit Gathering Furnace..."
"Both of their products produced an extraordinary image! Although the image isn't complete, it's already amazing! It seems like both of them will be taken away by the Palace Master after they come back from the Heaven Secret Area! The Palace Master hasn't accepted anyone for such a long time..."
The grandmasters couldn't help themselves but discuss among each other. They looked at Mu Bai and Jiang Ling with satisfied expressions on their faces. After all, both of them were able to surprise the grandmasters again and again.
Mu Bai and Jiang Ling's strong momentum attracted the attention of many alchemists. The cheers for them were non-stop.
The aura emitted from Mu Bai and Jiang Ling's body started to calm down.
After the radiance and fluctuation disappeared, everything became calm again.
Mu Bai gasped for breath and it was as though he had just been dragged out of a tank full of water. Beads of perspiration rolled off his forehead.
White Demon Jiang Ling's gaze was deep as she looked at Mu Bai in surprise. He was the little fellow who suffered a horrible defeat to her in the past. He actually grew to such a degree?
The alchemy furnace started to calm down and the Heaven and Earth Obsidian Flame started to disperse.
Mu Bai and Jiang Ling looked at each other and nodded their heads. They were ready to open their furnace in order to retrieve the pill.
However, just as the two of them were about to open the lid, they were stunned for a moment. They turned their heads to look into the distance.
There, Bu Fang had already started to do something new. He waved his Vermillion Robe and several porcelain plates immediately lined up on the golden platform. The plates were lined up neatly.
Bu Fang pressed one of his hand on the lid of the Buddha Jumps Over The Wall Soup.
With a slap, the heavy pot started to float in the air.
Bu Fang poured the soup which was emitting a resplendent light into several porcelain bowls and the dense aroma filled the arena. Waves of hot air emerged from the bowls.
After he poured the soup, Bu Fang raised his head to look at the two alchemists in the distance. He nodded his head with an expressionless face.
Mu Bai and Juang Ling were stunned for a moment. In the next instant, they saw that Bu Fang placed his hand on the Black Turtle Constellation Wok.
A blast echoed throughout the plaza.
The strips of noodle which were in the Black Turtle Constellation Wok flew out and waves of steam rolled off them. They landed neatly on the porcelain plates.
The red noodle strips were emitting a dazzling light and attracted the attention of many people. All of them sucked in a breath of air in surprise. They had a confused expression on their face. After causing so much ruckus, he produced these random strips of noodles? Could they even be eaten?
Bu Fang took a piece of dry cloth and wiped his hands.
Shrimpy, whose body was already completely red in color, was emitting hot air as it landed on Bu Fang's shoulder. It seemed to be a little dizzy as it spat out red-colored bubbles from its mouth. Shrimpy had a confused expression on its face.
Bu Fang tilted his head and looked at Shrimpy. A giggle escaped his lips. In the next moment, he looked at Mu Bai and Jiang Ling once again.
"I heard that the Buddha Jumps Over The Wall Soup goes well with the Crazy Hot Chili Strips..."
