Chapter 254: Passing On A Legacy
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
After killing two of the Saint members, Lin Huang went back to the Meteorite Desert on the Alexandrian Eagle.
He did not even bother with the two dead bodies as he knew that the monsters in the desert would settle them for him. Although Cao Yang's dead body was within the area where they had sprayed a drug to banish all monsters, the drug was only effective for a maximum of three days. In the desert, with the strong winds and sand violently blowing around, the period of effectiveness of the drug would be shortened.
Arriving at the Meteorite Desert's entrance, Lin Huang recalled the Alexandrian Eagle and Bloody at the same time.
If Bloody was not transformed back into its card form, it would not be able to pass the entrance gate of the foothold.
As soon as Lin Huang had passed the verification and entered the Meteorite Desert, he immediately summoned Bloody again. Bloody wrapped itself around Lin Huang's arm and hid in his sleeve. It had been recalled for less than 10 seconds and was summoned again because Lin Huang was afraid that the investigation of the Starlight Beast would be delayed.
After entering the city, Lin Huang went to the Hunter Association first and asked about Liang Qian.
Normally, the Hunter Association would not reveal any hunter's information to another hunter. However, after Liang Qian had returned, she had mentioned Ye Xiu in the description report before. Furthermore, Lin Huang knew the name and contact number of Liang Qian's hunter team leader. In addition to that, they would not usually add an anonymous contact number through the Emperor's Heart Ring. Therefore, the division of Hunter Association at Meteorite Desert gave Liang Qian's hotel information and room number to Lin Huang.
"083021" After a short while, Lin Huang found the hotel that Liang Qian was staying. By going up the floating stairs, Lin Huang had arrived on the 83rd floor and soon, he found room No.21.
Standing outside the door, he pressed the doorbell.
As the bell rang, Liang Qian felt weird as she had no friends in Meteorite Desert and she had not asked for any room service as well.
"Is there any news from the Hunter Association? Why didn't they contact me via the Emperor's Heart Ring?" Liang Qian wondered. She then activated the gold ring that she was wearing and a long sword appeared in her hand. She peered through the sight glass to see who was at the door.
Liang Qian was startled the moment when she saw that Lin Huang was standing at the door. She immediately opened the door.
"You're still alive?!" She thought that Lin Huang would have been killed by the Saint members since he had helped her to block their way.
"Yes, I have my way to escape from them. Plus, the Hunter Association's backup team arrived on time and we killed the both of them," Lin Huang lied.
"Is that true?!" Liang Qian was in disbelief.
"Of course, I've stored Du Feng's and your teammates' dead bodies for you." Lin Huang nodded, then asked, "May I go in?"
"Yes, I'm sorry" Liang Qian then realized that she had been blocking Lin Huang from entering. She immediately opened the door.
After entering the house, he took a glance at the living room floor and asked, "Can I put the corpses on the floor? But theyve started to smell"
Liang Qian was stunned for a while and said, "Please hold on for a minute."
She then cleared out everything from the living room by putting the chairs and tables aside and flipping over the carpet.
Lin Huang then took out five of the dead bodies. He first took out their body parts, followed by their skulls and the remaining parts. The dead bodies had decomposed, giving off a foul odor.
However, the both of them did not avoid that.
Liang Qian's eyes teared as she saw the five corpses.
"I've no idea what should I do next" Liang Qian's mind was blank. She actually knew the procedure but she could not remember it at all.
"You'll have to look for a forensic pathologist to have their heads reattached first. Then, look for an appropriate place to bury them," Lin Huang reminded.
"Yes, I should first reattach the dead bodies' decapitated heads and bury them"
"The Hunter Association has a forensic pathologist that specializes in this. I'll go with you." Lin Huang knew that Liang Qian was confused and traumatized. He shook his head and said, "I'll put these away first."
Lin Huang stored the dead bodies again and wanted to pass them to Liang Qian. However, Liang Qian was about to have an emotional breakdown and she could not keep them with her now.
"I'm sorry. These corpses have reminded me of the scene when I first saw their dead bodies." Liang Qian trembled and burst into uncontrollable tears.
Lin Huang did not say anything. He walked towards her and carried her to the sofa.
After sitting with her for a while until she had calmed herself down, he stood up and walked to the kitchen. He found some tea and made her a cup.
Liang Qian took the cup of tea gratefully. However, she did not drink it as she was still crying.
Lin Huang waited patiently beside her
After about 20 minutes, Liang Qian finally calmed herself down. She put down the cup of tea that she was holding and Lin Huang passed her a piece of tissue.
Liang Qian's eyes were red and she apologized to Lin Huang, "I'm sorry. I've wasted so much of your time." Taking the tissue, she wiped her tears.
"It's okay. If I were you, I would have collapsed too. It's better to vent your emotions than to suppress them," Lin Huang comforted her. "Take a good rest and we'll meet the forensic pathologist tomorrow."
"It's better if we go today. I know that you have something to deal with." Liang Qian's emotions seemed to have completely returned to normal.
"Are you sure you're fine?" Lin Huang asked.
"Yes, I'm running out of tears," Liang Qian joked.
"Alright, let's go." Lin Huang then stood up.
After leaving the hotel, the both of them quickly went back to the Hunter Association by riding on the Viridian Wolf.
Lin Huang and Liang Qian then went to the forensic room.
The person who was in charge of reattaching the decapitated heads was a man in sunglasses. He wore a white coat and a face mask. He was completely different from Liang Yin whom Lin Huang had met previously.
"This is the place where the dead bodies are fixed up. Autopsy and medical examination will be carried out in the room next to this," said a man in glasses who was preparing a report when he saw that there were shadows outside the room without even looking up at them.
"We came here to reattach the dead bodies," Lin Huang explained.
The man in glasses then raised his head and took a glance at both of them. "Come in."
"Wait a minute. I need five more minutes to complete this report," said the man in glasses, continuing with his work and not caring about them at all.
After about five minutes, the man in glasses seemed to have completed his work. He then stood up and said, "How many corpses do you have?"
"Take them out." The man in glasses then took out four morgues and placed them together with the morgue that he had brought out earlier.
Lin Huang placed the corpses on the morgues.
The bespectacled man frowned the moment he saw the dead bodies."Who did this? How could they be so cruel?"
"The Saint members," Lin Huang answered.
"You may wait outside. I'll need some time to get this done." The man turned to glance at them.
When Lin Huang was about to leave with Liang Qian, he asked, "Erm It's not difficult to distinguish their heads. But how do you make sure that you'll not attach them wrongly?"
"I have my ways. Don't worry, I won't make any mistakes," answered the man, with no intention to explain.
Since he did not want to answer his question, Lin Huang then left together with Liang Qian.
Both of them sat outside the forensic room for more than half an hour and soon, a voice called from the room, "You may come in now."
After entering the room, they could see that the five bodies looked completely fine. The man had used a transparent thread which could only be seen when they went closer to the corpses. The parts of the body that had decomposed had been fixed as well.
Liang Qian's face blushed slightly when she saw that the lower part of their bodies was perfectly fine. She immediately shifted her gaze.
"Amazing" Lin Huang was impressed by the man in glasses. "How did you handle the decomposed part? Why aren't there any marks at all?"
"I extracted their skin cells. Then, bacteria is used so that they can regenerate another layer of skin to cover the wounds. I've removed the decomposed part and filled it with the skin that has been thickened," he explained.
At least, Liang Qian's emotions were no longer affected as the dead bodies were complete now.
"I've passed the fee slip to the counter. If there are no other problems, you may pay over there and collect the bodies here. If you have any other requests, go ahead and suggest them. I'll do it for you." The man still had a poker face.
"I'll pay now. Wait for me here."
Of course, Liang Qian knew that she could not let Lin Huang pay for her and she immediately left the forensic room.
After a short while, Liang Qian came back with her face red.
"It's done so quickly?" Lin Huang asked.
"I don't have enough money. Could you please lend me some Life Crystals? I've used up all my Life Crystals when I activated the relic." Liang Qian dared not look at Lin Huang. "I'll return it to you as soon as possible after hunting down some monsters!"
"How many Life Crystals do you need?" Lin Huang asked.
Lin Huang immediately took out five Life Crystals and passed it to Liang Qian. "Anyway, you don't have to return me the money."
"I have to. Thank you!" Liang Qian took the Life Crystals and immediately left.
After a few minutes, she finally came back. She then asked the man in glasses, "I've made the payment. May I take the corpses now?"
"Yes, go ahead ." The main in glasses nodded in his own seat without looking at them.
Liang Qian then carefully put away the bodies. It seemed like the complete corpses did not remind her of the scene that she had witnessed, so she was calm.
"Where are you going to bury them?" Lin Huang asked after she had stored the bodies.
"The leader told me before that he wished that he could settle down at foothold A-grade, living a peaceful life. I'll bury them as well as the items left by the other members in the grave there," Liang Qian said with a wistful smile.
"What's your plan after this?" Lin Huang asked again.
"I will re-establish Team Dian Feng and pass on the legacy. Brother Du will be happy if he could see this" Liang Qin eventually figured out what she had to do after this.
"All the best to you!" Lin Huang raised his fist.
"Same goes to you!" Liang Qian raised her fist as well.
At that moment, Bloody who was in Lin Huang's sleeve suddenly twisted slightly.
"Have you found the Starlight Beast?!" Lin Huang communicated with Bloody through his mind.
Although he had no idea what Bloody was saying, Lin Huang could briefly understand that it was a confirmation reply.
