"yes, my master has indeed developed a new potion recently, but this potion is not particularly stable at the moment." jiang fei nodded.

"not particularly stable?" bai wanli was surprised. the yang sisters did not mention this when they sent information back previously.
"yes. you do know that it's a new potion. without clinical trials, it's difficult to guarantee that there won't be some side effects." jiang fei laughed.
"what side effects?" bai wanli asked.
"i don't know, someone has to drink it for me to find out." jiang fei shook his head.
"you haven't tested it yet?" ganyang zhenren asked.
"no. you know that my sect is different from traditional martial art sects. in your words, we're all people who are naturally born with blocked meridians. we could only become martial artists because my master made a difference. he developed a potion that allowed us to rebuild our dantian. however, this kind of potion is not suitable for normal martial artists. now, my master has modified the potions, but we're not traditional martial artists. so, we naturally cannot try the potions," jiang fei said with a smile.
"well..." ganyang zhenren hesitated. it was obvious what jiang fei meant. if they wanted the potions, they had to first send people to test the potions out!
"younger brother jiang, what do you think the success rate is?" ding tianqing asked.
"sixty to seventy percent," jiang fei said according to the data 0542 provided.
"that is to say, there's a forty percent chance that things will go wrong?" ding tianqing's question sounded more like a confirmation.
"yes, but it's difficult to say what will happen after failure. one might lose three strands of hair, or lose all their strength, or maybe die..." jiang fei shrugged.
"that's too big of a difference," bai wanli said with his eyes wide open. losing three strands of hair was the same as having no side effects at all. no one would care about that. however, if one would lose their strength or even die, it was too great of a risk.
"i brought the first batch of potions. there's a total of five bottles. if you like, you can try it out. you can see the effect in a few hours, and my master will modify and improve the potion according to the feedback," jiang fei said.
"what do you two think?" ding tianqing asked bai wanli and ganyang zhenren. in actuality, he was already tempted. even if the two leaders of the martial arts alliance did not agree to it, he would privately look for jiang fei to test the potion out.
"well..." bai wanli and ganyang zhenren looked around as they pondered. they realized that many sect leaders looked interested. these people were mainly from small and medium-sized sects. it was obvious that these guys had suffered heavy losses in the war in japan. now that there was a chance, they naturally wanted to fight for it.
ding tianqing thought the same. green willow heights was far less established compared to those major sects. green willow heights was almost completely destroyed in the war. there were only a few elders and less than thirty disciples left. if they did not take this chance to strengthen up, it would not be long before they disbanded.
it was precisely because of this that the heads of these small and medium-sized sects led by ding tianqing had made up their minds to cooperate with jiang fei. regardless of the opinions of the martial arts alliance, they had to seize this last chance.
"sigh! okay!" bai wanli and ganyang zhenren looked at each other, then nodded and agreed.
these small and medium-sized sects have already made up their minds to help jiang fei test out the potions anyway. the two of them would just offend jiang fei for nothing if they objected. since they could not change anything, why should they be the bad guys?
"as for the candidates for the potion testing..." ganyang zhenren paused. all the disciples recruited by the big sects were talented, so they naturally refused to let their disciples take such risks. if jiang fei's potions did not have any side effects, they would of course fight for it. now, however, they were only going to test it. so, they obviously would not volunteer.
"let us do it!"
"our sect can also send someone!"
"if it's mr. jiang, we're also willing to help!"
sure enough, as soon as ganyang zhenren opened his mouth, those small and medium-sized sects took the initiative to volunteer. they clearly knew the risks of testing these potions, but they also understood the mindset of the major sects. if there were no risks, would they even have a chance to get their hands on jiang fei's potions?
so, even though the potion testing was risky, they had to take it.
"let's do this. you guys pick two level 2 disciples, two level 3 disciples, and one level 4 master. this way, i can tell at which stage the potions work the most effectively," jiang fei said according to the 0542's requirements.
"no problem!" the heads of these small and medium-sized sects nodded.
soon, two level 2 disciples and two level 3 disciples were selected. they were average martial artists who did not even have any status in their small and medium-sized sects. the two level 3 disciples were already forty or fifty years old and there was basically no possibility of them being able to increase their own strength through practice.
however, when it was the turn to select the level 4 martial artist to test the potion, the heads of these small and medium-sized sects hesitated. even a beginning stage level 4 martial artist was a treasure to them. they had less than five level 4 masters in the entire sect. so, they were reluctant to put their level 4 masters at risk.
"let me do it!" at this time, ding tianqing actually volunteered.
"old ding, don't be impulsive!" bai wanli and ding tianqing were close to each other, so he could not bear to see ding tianqing take such a risk.
"father! don't..." ding menghan started crying.
"don't try to persuade me to change my mind! i've decided!" ding tianqing waved his hands. he had already made up his mind before he volunteered.
currently, green willow heights was already half-dead. as the sect leader, he was only an advanced level 4 martial artist. if this continued, it would be over for the entire green willow heights!
we become wiser by adversity. now, ding tianqing was like that. he wanted to gamble. for jiang fei's potion to be effective and for the side effects to be minimal. if this potion could make him advance to pinnacle level 4, then he could revive green willow heights. although it was only a small chance, he could not miss it!
"mao gongsui, lu gongzan, bring menghan downstairs." ding tianqing gestured to them. then, the two men brought the crying ding menghan who wanted to stop ding tianqing down.
ding tianqing turned and said to jiang fei, "mr. jiang, i've decided to gamble. if the forty percent does not happen to me, then i owe you a favor. in the future, if you need any help, i will be at your disposal! if i unfortunately get caught in the forty percent, please take care of my little girl for me. however, for this favor, i can only repay you in the afterlife!"
"would you like to think about it again?" jiang fei was a little hesitant. although he clearly came here just to look for people to test the potion out, ding tianqing was his acquaintance. if he allowed an acquaintance take such a risk, he would definitely feel guilty.
