Yue Yang stored his gold and used the surplus cash to buy multiple goods. He was about to teleport to the Star’s Domain and continue his Blackstone Labyrinth Quest.
He reckoned that Yi Nan and Yue Bing must have reached the Ten Thousand Year Ancient Oak Tree by now, and might have already started doing the Ancient Oak Tree quest. With Hui Tai Lang there, they would be able to feel assured when doing quests while waiting for him. With regards to Ye Kong, Fatty Hai and the others, Yue Yang reckoned that they would only be able to reach the Ten Thousand Years Ancient Oak Tree after another day passed. So there would still be time to meet up with them if he quickly returned now.
“Aih, so it was indeed you.” Suddenly, Luo Hua City Mistress caught up with him from behind, and she quickly grabbed Yue Yang’s ears and pulled at it, “Little thief, why do you always try to run away at the sight of me?”
“Esteemed City Mistress, please do not be that strict on me. I didn’t do anything bad,” Yue Yang quickly avoided her snow white fingers.
Seeing that the Luo Hua City Mistress could find him that easily, he was quite astounded in his heart.
But seeing that there was a cute little Three-tailed Snow Fox trailing at the Luo Hua City Mistress’ feet, he finally had a revelation. So this little fox spirit was not only a good battling companion, it was also an expert in pursuing other’s trail. The only thing that Yue Yang did not understand was the reason why the Luo Hua City Mistress had come to find him.
Luo Hua City Mistress scowled grumpily as she looked at the Hui Jin blade that hung on Yue Yang’s waist. Her voice sounded displeased as she said, “You idiot, why did you exchange your achievement points with gold? If you were lacking in money, why didn’t you come and find me? Although I’m not a very rich person, I am still a City Mistress. I can lend you a few hundred gold coins if you need it. There are many better, special uses for achievement points, do you know that? At the Third Floor of Tong Tian Tower, there would be many places that require achievement points to enter. It won’t be as easy as entering whenever you wanted to. Normally, where would there be so many Demon Generals waiting to be killed? Above the Third Floor, the demons above Demon Generals, Demon Commanders and Demon Masters, usually travel in groups. Those fellows are a strong force due to their great numbers. They are also ten times stronger than a normal human warrior. If you do not ambush them, it would be quite difficult to win the battle.”
Hearing this, Yue Yang started to sweat bullets. He didn’t know about this at all.
Who knew that battle achievement points had so many uses? This time, he was also forced to go to the Warrior Guild’s Glorious Third Floor to exchange his achievements for gold. If he had money, who would listen to that ‘white-robed elder brother’s’ nagging? That fellow really deserved a beating, even more than Fatty Hai. But speaking of that, could he really be Fatty Hai’s relative?
Seeing Yue Yang’s face full of sweat and worry, Luo Hua City Mistress’s angry expression suddenly changed and she began to laugh out loud. She laughed until her fragrant shoulders shook and her beautiful body trembled.
Laughing candidly had always been one of her distinguishing characteristics.
When this girl laughed without restriction, she looked really sexy. Yue Yang felt a kind of wolfy desire surfacing in his heart. If it wasn’t for some mercenaries sometimes passing by beside them, Yue Yang had really wanted to push the Luo Hua City Mistress down to the ground and force himself on her. Of course, this feeling was just a passing desire that surfaced from her sexy laughter, nothing else. Yue Yang would probably say that his heart was made of iron. He saw every woman as an NPC in a game. However, the familial affection he had for Fourth Mother, Yue Bing and the little girl was something he couldn’t even deny himself.
As for the bright-eyed Yi Nan, if somebody were to ask Yue Yang, he would definitely say he had no feelings for her.
But whether it was the truth in his heart or not, because of Yue Yang’s [Counterfeit] Inherent Skill, nobody would ever know.
“If I say that you are clever, it’s true that you are actually a sophisticated liar who can run circles on everyone you lied to; If I say you are an idiot, you are also an idiot who doesn’t have any of the basic knowledge in life. If you haven’t heard about it, why don’t you ask around? You have a Crystal Card, you could go to the Warrior’s Gold Bank to get an advance on your pay. Let alone the Da Xia Kingdom’s Banks, even the Tian Luo and Zi Jin people would definitely not be stingy and lend you some gold, using the opportunity to curry favour with a strong ranker. You really made me laugh to death. Could you amuse me more?” Luo Hua City Mistress kept laughing loudly non-stop. Her small hands patted on Yue Yang’s shoulders, seemingly saying ‘If I were to die from laughing you would have to take responsibility’.
“Esteemed City Mistress, what brings you to find me?” Yue Yang had an open thinking, even if he didn’t want to convert now, he had already converted it. It was useless to regret his past actions.
Furthermore, didn’t he only exchange the battle achievements for five Demon Generals?
He could just kill another five later on. Demon Generals didn’t have summoning grimoires nor Halo Shields to protect themselvs, so Yue Yang still had the confidence that he could take them down.
As for the Demon Commanders and Demon Masters above Demon Generals, Yue Yang had never seen them before, so he didn’t know their abilities. But he had fought with the Demon King Ha Xin and Lich King Grun before. Although Yue Yang couldn’t match up to them on his own, with Xiao Wen Li’s help, he could still retreat with his whole body intact, instead of being killed.
As for Demon Kings, Yue Yang decided not to think about becoming a Ranker that could fight on par with Demon Kings right now.
Demon Masters was already high-leveled enough. Yue Yang felt that 99% of Demon Masters would definitely have a summoning grimoire. He shouldn’t bite more than he could chew. If he had the opportunity, he would like to battle with Demon Commanders. That was Yue Yang’s little wish.
Luo Hua City Mistress slowly calmed her bold and sexy laugh and hugged Yue Yang’s shoulders in a brother-style, saying, “Seeing that you are my future Guard Captain, you would definitely benefit if I have something good. I was preparing to fight with a formidable demon, and I need a helper. Come, let’s think about some tactics to defeat the demon,”
“I’m not going,” Yue Yang rejected her immediately.
That was a redundant invitation. With this girl’s violent strength, she wouldn’t be going after easy monsters. Fighting a strong opponent, wouldn’t that be seeking death?
Also, discussing about tactics was not interesting to Yue Yang, unless Luo Hua City Mistress was inviting him to discuss about tactics in bed. He would definitely agree with her, gladly.
Luo Hua City Mistress seemed to have predicted that Yue Yang would reply that way. She didn’t mind it at all as she smiled, “Don’t throw a child’s tantrum on me… I wouldn’t hurt you. Listening to my advice is the right thing to do. If you behave like a good boy, this big sister will give you some candies…”
Yue Yang’s forehead was filled with black lines, “…”
He wanted to throw off the Luo Hua City Mistress who was hugging his shoulders and walk away, but the kind of soft, silky feeling that she gave was so wonderful that he hated to part with it a little.
A faint, delicate fragrance came from her side, penetrating deeply into his heart.
Although Yue Yang looked decent on the outside, in reality, he was already embarrassingly hard in some places.
Luo Hua City Mistress’s snow white fingers hooked on Yue Yang’s chin as she blew off a sweet scent, “Little thief, don’t you want beauties? A strong and beautiful beauty?”
“I do,” Yue Yang thought in his heart, isn’t that obvious? Among all men, other than those that swing the other way, who would not like beauties? Could it be that his happy life had finally started? Was this Luo Hua City Mistress feeling lonely, and urgently needed him to comfort her? However, this girl doesn’t seem like one of those kinds of girls who likes to seduce guys and have one-night stands. Her body scent was sort of similar to Yi Nan’s; seemed like she was still a maiden. How could she ask him to have sex with her after only seeing him for two to three times?
“I know of a place where there is a strong yet beautiful beauty, let’s go together and take her down,” Luo Hua City Mistress was sparing no effort to incite Yue Yang’s wolfy heart.
“You are saying, both of us?” Yue Yang started sweating. Could this Luo Hua City Mistress be a lily?
(Shiro: Lily = lesbian)
“If I don’t help you out, with your standard as a little thief, would you be able to take down a gold-ranked level 5 Bloody Queen?” When Luo Hua City Mistress said that, Yue Yang immediately fell to the ground.
Indeed, this girl didn’t find him to go to bed with him. It was also not to chase girls. She was looking for him to make him do hard labour.
Gold-ranked level 5?
That strength was almost similar to that three-headed chimera, and the monster’s name itself already sounded terrifying, Bloody Queen…Looks like it was at least a Golden King Beast, if not, it should be on par with the Abyss King-level demons. If it was only him and the Luo Hua City Mistress, he didn’t even know if he would be the one being pushed down by the Bloody Queen or the other way around.
Yue Yang immediately struggled to get away from Luo Hua City Mistress’ arms and walked away, “Not going. I don’t take pleasure in masochism,”
Luo Hua City Mistress chased after him and kept up her marketing campaign, “Little thief, I don’t need you to work hard. I will be the main attacker, and you would only be responsible to clear the small fries around. When we win, I will give the Bloody Queen to you. Think about it, If you could make a contract with her, with a golden-ranked level five Bloody Queen, it wouldn’t even be a normal battle when you summoned it out. It would sweep away everything on its path. I see that you are lacking a strong summon. Although that two-headed wolf has a bright future, it is still a beast-type. It would only be able to fight on land. What would you do if you meet an avian-type beast? Don’t tell me you would be defeated by a mere Wind Breath Seabird. It would be a different case if you had the Bloody Queen, because it is an existence second only to Giant Dragons.”
“Then what does your excellency the City Mistress need when we win?” Yue Yang didn’t understand the situation. Could it be that there was a selfless person like Lei Feng in this Soaring Dragon Continent?
“Stop spouting nonsense. Of course I want the best thing!” When Luo Hua City Mistress said this, Yue Yang secretly cried ‘I knew it’. However, when Luo Hua City Mistress continued her speech, Yue Yang stared at her with a dumb look again. This was because the Luo Hua City Mistress had said, “What I want is the Bloody Queen’s imaginary, beautiful demonic flower. You didn’t know, but I only lacked the beautiful demonic flower as a decoration in my window…”
“Deal.” When Yue Yang heard this, afraid that the Luo Hua City Mistress would regret her words, he immediately grabbed her small hands and seized the opportunity to take advantage of her and get away with a cheap deal.
“I knew that you, this little thief, wouldn’t be able to resist the temptation,” Luo Hua City Mistress almost seemed like she already knew that Yue Yang would agree, and laughed out loud, “You, a fellow with no future, how could you believe in other’s words so easily? Don’t you know girls can be liars too?”
“…” Receiving her lesson in life, Yue Yang couldn’t help but sweat bullets. She continued to lecture about the good and the bad.
“Don’t worry, I wouldn’t lie to such a foolish little thief like you. Because you are my future Guard Captain,” Luo Hua City Mistress giggled softly, “I was just reminding you not to believe in others so easily, no matter if they are male or female. If you have things to do now, I’ll give you half a day to finish them.”
“No need,” Yue Yang’s heart twitched a little. It wouldn’t be too late if he killed the Bloody Queen first before meeting up with Yue Bing and Yi Nan, right?
Yue Bing and Yi Nan both are not weak, they should be safe within the Blackstone Labyrinth.
Furthermore, they could also level up their Treeman Warrior and little Silver Pegasus while waiting.
As for himself, he was indeed lacking a flying beast. If he could get Phantom Shadow to take over the Bloody Queen’s body and turn it into an existence like the Barbarian Cow Shadow, his battle power would definitely rise a lot. A golden-ranked level 5 Bloody Queen, he might not be able to say for others, but the strength of the Bloody Queen was definitely not small. If he really was successful, then when he went back to the Yue Clan’s Castle, he would be able to trample on the Yue Clan’s First and Second Branch, those self-interested people. He believed that he wouldn’t need to use his Innate [Invisible Sword Qi] or Xiao Wen Li to easily get back at them on behalf of Fourth Mother.
Seeing Yue Yang starting to shake his head, Luo Hua City Mistress immediately grabbed on his hands, “Don’t worry, we will get back soon enough. Your sister’s strength is not that bad, it wouldn’t be a problem if she trained at the Blackstone Labyrinth. Furthermore, you shouldn’t protect her so much, you should give her a chance to be independent sometimes. Shall we go now? Don’t let it be stolen by the fellows in the Abyss now,”
“Abyss?” Yue Yang froze. What has the Bloody Queen got to do with the Abyss? Could it be that the Bloody Queen lived in the Abyss?
“The Bloody Queen is the new Gold King Beast. It is easiest to defeat now, if we wait for a few more months, let it grow stronger even more and rise to gold-ranked level 6, it would be a difficult problem. Every single beast, once they reach level 6, their abilities would increase by ten times from their previous state. However, once a Bronze, Silver and Gold monster level up to level 6, they wouldn’t be able to go through a Variant Evolution. Even Platinum-ranked, only a few of them had the chance to go through a variant evolution….That Two-headed Demon Wolf of yours, don’t let it rise to bronze-ranked level 6. You must let it go through a Variant Evolution to a silver-ranked beast first, otherwise it would be fated as a useless hard labourer,” Luo Hua City Mistress pulled Yue Yang along and ran quickly as she explained. Yue Yang listened to her seriously. He could only hear these secrets on cultivating beasts from her. If not for her, he didn’t know who else would tell him all these things.
If it ever rose to bronze-ranked level 6, he reckoned that he should fire Hui Tai Lang.
Fortunately, Hui Tai Lang is only bronze-ranked level 5 now, there was still chance for him to evolve to a silver-ranked beast.
“What will a two-headed Demon Wolf need to do to go through a variant evolution to silver-ranked?” Yue Yang couldn’t help the urge for his thirst for knowledge and asked. He knew that these are the deepest secret of secrets that others wouldn’t tell him easily, but he still asked Luo Hua City Mistress straight away anyway.
