Chapter 439: Shanhai City
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
More than a week had passed. The study on Undead Evil Child's skills was not as successful as Bloody expected. Although the Undead Evil Child's Immortal Tinder was similar to Bloody's Leech Pod, the differences were major. The Immortal Tinder could duplicate the Undead Evil Child's memory perfectly while Bloody's Leech Pods could not contain such a massive amount of information. Moreover, the Immortal Tinder was much better at hiding than the Leech Pod whereby it was almost undetectable while Bloody could not do that.
However, after a week of studying, Bloody managed to come up with a similar skill. As the Leech Pod could contain limited information, Bloody could only create Leech Pods that were exclusively for memory storage. Such new Leech Pods were more than ten times bigger than the original Leech Pods, but it could completely store Bloody's memory. The disadvantage was that because it was big, it could be targeted easily, so it could only be used for close-range parasitizing. Besides, it could not hide after parasitizing was performed and it could be easily discovered by humans or monsters with spiritual detection abilities.
Although it was a half-baked skill that was full of flaws, Bloody decided to add it to its skill range anyway. If it were a complete skill, it would appear automatically in the skill slot, and it would not take up the currently vacant slot. As it was incomplete, Bloody decided to put it in anyway since it had a vacant slot. Bloody named it Immortal Pods (Beginner). Lin Huang took a look at the skill and knew that it was half-baked.
Since all of its skill slots were full, the unlocking terms appeared at the back of Bloody's card.
"The card is sealed at the moment. Unlocking must be done in order to level up to holy fire-level.
"Unlocking Terms: Get Demonic Dandelion Vine to kill more parasites with different parasitic abilities!
"Terms Description: Kill at least ten types of parasitic monsters; the more, the better.
"Remark 1: The monsters' combat level should not be lower than the Demonic Dandelion Vine's.
"Remark 2: You can get other summoning monsters to help with the killing, but you cannot get help from other participants.
"Remark 3: The helpers' combat level has to be lower than the target's."
As soon as he saw the unlocking terms, Lin Huang posted his request to look for various parasites on the Hunter Forum, and he soon got replies. He headed out three days later after he got Tyrant to stay with Lin Xin this time. As the parasites were scattered everywhere, Lin Huang did not plan to kill the parasites first. Instead, he headed to Shanhai City to meet Yi Yeyu.
Shanhai City was located at foothold No.7A2, and it was one of the biggest A-grade footholds in Division7. Its crowd was nothing less than the White Capital's. However, they were both located far away from each other whereby one was in the north of Division7 while the other was in the southeast. Although the foothold was popular, Lin Huang never had the opportunity to visit it. However, it was clear that Mr. Fu had been there before as the foothold's coordinates were pinned in the dimensional relic.
As Lin Huang stepped into the dimensional relic, he appeared in a hotel room again, but this time, he entered right into the bathroom. He heard the sound of flowing water sound behind him. He wanted to dig his eyes out as soon as he turned around. Under the running shower was an older man with a buff body, showering. With bubbles on his body, the thick hair on his firm chest grabbed Lin Huang's attention. Luckily, the bubbles managed to cover his lower body region, so Lin Huang did not see anything that he should not have seen.
The uncle soon noticed that Lin Huang was in the shower together with him, so he grabbed a towel and covered his chest in disgust.
"Uncle, I think you're covering the wrong place..." Lin Huang wanted to say, but the uncle's scream did not allow him to.
"I'm sorry, I didn't mean to do this," Lin Huang apologized and left with his dimensional relic.
He ran out of the hotel as fast as he could. He was annoyed that he had to see that once he arrived in Shanhai City. It must be bad luck to be labeled as a pervert by someone else.
He took a deep breath and protected the map with his Emperor's Heart Ring. He was not far away from Yi Yeyu's house. It was only past 8 a.m, and since he was not in a rush, he sat down at an alfresco cafe and called Yi Yeyu.
The call was soon connected. Yi Yeyu was having breakfast when he called.
"You're coming to Shanhai City now?" Yi Yeyu was eating a piece of meat as she mumbled to Lin Huang.
"I'm already here," Lin Huang said and noticed that Yi Yeyu was dressed in formal attire.
"Why are you dressed so formally today? Do you have something going on?"
"I'm picking up a good friend today. She's my big sister. She used to be my great-grandfather's staff who took good care of me when I was little. She's been working with the Union Government in Division3 after she broke through immortal-level a few years ago. I didn't see her since then. She happened to be in Division7 these few days to visit me. I got her a hotel in the middle of the night, and I'm meeting her today," Yi Yeyu explained in detail.
"Oh, go meet your friend then, since my matter is not urgent anyway. I'll shop and walk around in the city. I'll visit you when you're done meeting her." Lin Huang thought it would be inconvenient for him to be around since she had an appointment with a friend she had not seen for years.
"It's okay, we're close and since you're here, let's meet up together." Yi Yeyu did not think there was anything wrong.
"Alright then." Lin Huang did not say further since she suggested that.
"Send me your coordinates. Let me see who should I pick up first."
Lin Huang sent his coordinates immediately.
"Eh, you're very close to my big sister! That's convenient," Yi Yeyu said after looking at the coordinates while grinning.
"There are many hotels around, so it's not unusual that we're close." Lin Huang looked up and saw six hotels around him.
"Wait for me wherever you are, I'll be there in ten."
After the call ended, Lin Huang sipped his coffee and shook his head as he thought of what he had seen earlier.
"I thought everything would go smoothly today, but it seems like I was wrong. It's true that we shouldn't be too superstitious."
