Adrian wasn’t trying to manipulate Xion by comforting her.
Abraham knew her well enough to understand that despite her previous affiliation with the Banks family, she was a loyal and righteous person at heart. Abraham trusted that she would be willing to help him with the medicine without resorting to aggressive tactics.
Abraham had called upon her to test the elixir as soon as he had refined the new batch, fully confident that its efficacy would be stronger than the previous Life Saving Pill and free of any harmful side effects. Adrian’s provocative methods had indeed worked, and Xion was no longer concerned about owing him too much.
Instead, she was eager to prove her loyalty and courage to him.
Taking the pill from Leonardo, she asked firmly, “Mr. Wade, should I take it now?”
Adrian nodded in agreement. “Go ahead,” he said. “I’ll be watching. There shouldn’t be any problems.”
With a small nod, Xion sat cross-legged on the ground and popped the elixir into her mouth. Having used the Life Saving Pill before, she was prepared for the pure medicinal power to flow directly to her dantian. But what she didn’t expect was the sheer potency of this elixir.
The medicinal power surged through her body, pouring into her eight meridians and racing towards her dantian. Xion could feel the energy flowing through her, surging with greater strength than ever before. The intensity of the experience took her by surprise, and she gasped in awe at the power of the elixir.
Xion was stunned as she felt the powerful surge of energy flowing through her body.
She had expected the elixir to be potent, but she was not prepared for the instantaneous effects it had on her. As she felt the sixth meridian in her body opening up, she knew that she had become a six-star warrior, a feat that was incredibly difficult to achieve.
But before she could even process the shock of her newfound power, she felt another wave of energy coursing through her body, and the seventh meridian was opened up as well. Xion was now a seven-star warrior, a level that few people in the entire country could reach.
She was speechless, unable to believe that she had just gained two levels in a matter of seconds. Adrian was equally amazed, having never seen anyone upgrade so quickly before.
Abraham knew that the elixir was potent, but he had not expected such drastic results.
Upgrading from five stars to seven stars with just one pill was truly remarkable, and Adrian couldn’t help but feel excited about the possibilities that this new medicine could bring. It’s a rare feat to become a seven-star warrior in twenties, even within the prestigious Dragon Temple.
The Elms Family, with their centuries-long history of martial arts, never even dared to dream of producing a seven-star warrior in their twenties. Yet, a young girl in her early twenties had shattered all expectations, officially entering the ranks of seven-star warriors and setting a new record not just for the Elms Family but for all domestic martial arts families.
Despite her achievement, Xion still had an abundance of medicinal power coursing through her body, pushing towards her eighth extraordinary meridian. Her seven opened meridians were struggling to contain the powerful medicine, leaving her body in a state of flux as the energy rushed towards its final destination.
