Chapter 257: Going to the Law Enforcement Hall

The disciple's reaction and words, though expected by Jiang Yun, still ignited a flash of anger in his eyes.

With Zhou Dongqing's token in hand, he had thought he could at least smoothly meet Xiao Zheng.

However, even the two gatekeeper disciples were deliberately causing him trouble.

Obviously, these two disciples were connected to the so-called pharmacist Li, hence they were preventing him from entering the Grand Medicine Sect.

Jiang Yun suppressed his anger and calmly said, "I came here to explain the matter of your disciple Liu Hao's death. I hope you both can help inform others."

"Inform others?" One disciple crossed his arms, smirking at Jiang Yun and said, "If everyone who comes here asks us to inform others, what else would we have time for?"

Another disciple added, "Don't you know Xiao Zheng? Figure out how to contact him and have him come out to meet you!"

After speaking, the two people stared coldly at Jiang Yun, showing no intention to speak again.

Jiang Yun took a deep breath and said, "So, are you not planning to help me pass the message?"

"That's right!"

"*Bang!*"

Just as he finished speaking, Jiang Yun suddenly took a step forward.

With a surge of energy coursing through his body, his long hair moved without wind, his fists clenched quietly, and a fierce light gleamed in his eyes.

Seeing Jiang Yun's appearance, the two disciples couldn't help but take a step back in fear.

"H-how, could it be, you still want to force your way into our Grand Medicine Sect?"

To be honest, at this moment Jiang Yun really had this idea.

But he was not reckless. If he forcefully enters the Grand Medicine Sect, not only would he not be able to detoxify the poison of his Third Martial Brother, but it may also bring trouble to the Seeking-Tao Sect.

Feeling disappointed, Jiang Yun had to release his clenched fists. Just as he was about to speak gently, he suddenly heard an excited voice coming from afar.

"Brother Jiang, Brother Jiang, you finally came!"

Upon hearing this voice, even though he hadn't seen the person yet, Jiang Yun's anger dissipated instantly, and a smile appeared on his face.

Of course, it was Xiao Zheng who was speaking!

It seemed that Zhou Dongqing had informed him, and he rushed over immediately to greet Jiang Yun.

A moment later, Xiao Zheng appeared in front of Jiang Yun, examining him up and down as if to make sure he wasn't injured.

Then, he walked up to Jiang Yun with a big smile and embraced him without any hesitation, saying, "Great to see you, Brother Jiang! I was worried that the Luo family might have harmed you, thankfully you are safe!"

This simple sentence warmed Jiang Yun's heart instantly.

Before he could say anything, Xiao Zheng grabbed his arm and said, "Come on, I was helping Master tend the furnace. When I heard Brother Zhou's message, I rushed out immediately and now we have to go back quickly!"

Jiang Yun was even more touched.

As a pharmacist, he knew the importance of tending the furnace while refining pills.

But Xiao Zheng, in order to pick him up, didn't even tend the furnace.

If something went wrong and caused the pill refining to fail, he would definitely be punished by his master.

"Xiao, Xiao pharmacist!"

Suddenly, a somewhat timid voice spoke up. It was the gatekeeper disciple.

Faced with Xiao Zheng, they dared not show any airs, and their attitude became extremely respectful.

Xiao Zheng turned to look at the gatekeeper disciple and frowned, "Is there something wrong?"

"This is Jiang Yun, his background is unknown, he cannot enter, in case..."

Xiao Zheng snorted and said, "No need for 'in case'. While Jiang Yun is at Grand Medicine Sect, even if he causes a huge mistake, I, Xiao Zheng, will take full responsibility!"

After saying that, Xiao Zheng ignored the two gatekeepers, took Jiang Yun's hand, and walked straight towards the misty mountain gate.

Jiang Yun allowed Xiao Zheng to lead him without any resistance, and they passed through the mountain gate and entered Grand Medicine Sect.

While pulling Jiang Yun along, Xiao Zheng kept talking, "You've come at just the right time. If you were three days later, you wouldn't see me."

"Because three days later is our sect's once-in-five-years Drug Competition, maybe you can participate..."

At this point, Xiao Zheng's voice suddenly stopped, even his movement froze.

Jiang Yun naturally stopped too, looking at Xiao Zheng somewhat puzzled.

After a moment, Xiao Zheng turned around and looked at Jiang Yun, the joy on his face replaced by seriousness, "My master sent a message to me, asking me to take you to the Law Enforcement Hall first!"

Enforcement Hall!

Although Jiang Yun didn't understand Grand Medicine Sect, he knew what these three words represented.

Xiao Zheng furrowed his brow and said, "Even though Junior Brother Li won't let you go, how would Enforcement Hall know that you came to Grand Medicine Sect?"

Jiang Yun touched his nose and said, "Maybe it's because I just knocked out more than ten disciples of your sect at the city gate of Heavenly Pill City, and also injured someone named Guo Si!"

"What!"

Upon hearing this, Xiao Zheng was stunned and stared straight at Jiang Yun.

Jiang Yun was a bit puzzled and said, "Did that Zhou Dongqingtaoist friend not mention it to Brother Xiao?"

Xiao Zheng thought for a moment and said, "He seemed to have mentioned a fight, but I didn't pay attention until I heard that you came!"

Jiang Yun finally understood that Xiao Zheng was solely focused on his alchemy practice, so he probably didn't pay much attention to the message from Zhou Dongqing, only catching his own name.

"Don't worry! Junior Brother Li ordered to capture you, but it was his own secret decision. Besides, this is not your fault at all. Come, I'll accompany you to the Law Enforcement Hall!"

Although Xiao Zheng didn't ask Jiang Yun about the reason for Guo Si's injury, it was clear that he also guessed.

Unable to hold back, Jiang Yun asked, "What's the matter with Junior Brother Li? Also, why do you call him Junior Brother Li, while Guo Si and the others call him Pharmacist Li?"

"Junior Brother Li is called Li Changlin, he is Liu Hao's cousin, and like me, he is also a third-grade pharmacist."

"It was he who brought Liu Hao into our sect back then."

Thinking of Liu Hao's death at this point, Xiao Zheng sighed and said, "Although we have sent people to wipe out Hundred Herbs Valley to avenge Junior Brother Liu Hao, Li Changlin still refuses to let it go."

"So he simply included you in his revenge plan and asked his master to order to capture you!"

"As for the different titles, it's because although our sect is famous for pharmacy, we actually accept disciples who practice various other disciplines, responsible for all matters other than pharmacy."

"People like Guo Si, Zhou Dongqing, they belong to this category of disciples, so they are not qualified to call Li Changlin Junior Brother or Senior Brother."

Xiao Zheng's explanation finally made Jiang Yun understand.

It's no wonder that within the Grand Medicine Sect, there are body cultivators like Guo Si who are skilled in physical strength.

Actually, the situation in the Grand Medicine Sect is similar to that of the Seeking-Tao Sect, but the Seeking-Tao Sect specializes in five paths, hence the division into five peaks.

In contrast, the Grand Medicine Sect only focuses on two paths.

One is the path of medicine, and the other is all other paths outside of medicine.

It appears that within the Grand Medicine Sect, disciples who specialize in the path of medicine may not have high status, but they are highly sought after compared to disciples like Guo Si.

Indeed, that is the case.

In the Grand Medicine Sect, disciples specializing in the path of medicine start at the lowest level as medicine apprentices, and then move up to become pharmacists.

However, pharmacists are also divided into different levels, categorized into four ranks based on the classification of medicinal pills.

A pharmacist below the second rank is called an ordinary pharmacist;

A pharmacist below the fourth rank is called a common pharmacist;

A pharmacist below the sixth rank is called an earth pharmacist;

A pharmacist below the eighth rank is called a sky pharmacist!

As for the ninth rank, since none have appeared so far, there is no specific title for them.

Once becoming a pharmacist, even the lowest rank, one can be considered outstanding and superior.

"Li Changlin and his master are already at the Law Enforcement Hall. When we get there, don't speak, I'll speak for you, and my master will also be there, so don't worry, nothing will happen!"

Despite comforting Jiang Yun with words, Xiao Zheng's face showed no sign of relaxation.
