Chapter 104: That Dirty Elder Beetle
Half an hour later, Wei Suo and Han Weiwei arrived at the copper mine amidst the Great Cyan Mountain, only 300 li away from Spirit Peak City.
Although Wei Suo had previously frightened that low level cultivator using Li Honglin’s name, but if that low level cultivator realized he was tricked, then he may very well leak out the information of that Elder Scarlet Beetle.
As the night drew longer, dreams were frequent. Since he was already out of the city, Wei Suo decided to dispatch of the Scarlet Beetles. Besides, this place wasn’t far from Spirit Peak City. Level 4 and below demonic beasts were the norm, there shouldn’t be any high level demonic beasts around…..
The reason for bringing Han Weiwei, was because Wei Suo had experienced working with her to defeat both cultivators previously. He realized the efficiency boost from having any cultivator that was relatively of equal strength.
Moreover, if unexpected variables were to occur, another helper would very well preserve his life. More critically, the mine that the Scarlet Beetles were hiding in were rather tangled and complicated.
“F***, need to drill again.”
After locating a broad entrance into the mine, Wei Suo grumbled lazily as he held onto his Night Glowing Pearl with his dull golden spear on the other hand. He then drilled into the ore mine.
Wei Suo had troubled himself to dig into so many caves thus far, but he managed to reap great rewards from each attempt….
Hence, it seemed like caves were Wei Suo’s sanctuary, drilling deeper into the cave.
Han Weiwei wasn’t dumb. Following close as they entered the ore mine, she instantly activated her flaming shield. Concurrently, it provided some illumination for the two.
This shield was terribly fortified, Wei Suo was even envious of that flaming shield that could endure repeated poundings of his Earth puppets. He couldn’t help voicing out, “Han Weiwei, your Flaming Shield technique isn’t bad, can you teach it to me?”
“Rubbish, obviously not.” Han Weiwei stingily replied. “When did you see other cultivators transferring their own skills and cultivation techniques to others?”
Wei Suo clamped his mouth, he only wanted to casually ask…..of course, he knew a cultivator couldn’t simply transfer their skills and cultivation technique to others. Once his own skills and cultivation techniques were studied by others, then battles would become more dangerous. Only one who lacks spiritual stones, or possess greater skills would be willing to sell their current skills and techniques.
“But if you teach me that skill that resulted in my panda eyes, I can offer you my skill.” Han Weiwei upon observing Wei Suo’s dejected expression, laughed in ridicule. “Those Earth puppets are pretty fun.”
“Truly?” Wei Suo became excited. “Then do you think my Golden Serpent net is formidable? Wanna trade for your ice dragon skill?”
“You carry on wishing…..this Ice Dragon True Technique was painstakingly acquired by senior sister, it is an upper rank Earth level skill.
“So it was indeed an Earth level skill.” Wei Suo jealously shook his head. “Then let’s trade for that Flaming Shield Technique first.”
“What Flaming Shield Technique. It is called Firegod Prison Shield. It is also a Earth level skill, but a lower rank one.” Han Weiwei pursed her lips and proceeded to offer its details directly to Wei Suo. She even listed her understanding of this skill.
After obtaining clarity on that Firegod Prison Shield, Wei Suo very refreshingly explained to Han Weiwei about his Earthgod true technique.
“Not bad, with a higher cultivation, it can even create lava giants….it is not an ordinary junk.” Han Weiwei was also pleased with the Earthgod True Technique.
“HAHA, this skill was obtained from Liu Sanbao.” Wei Suo purposely teased Han Weiwei.
“What!?” Han Weiwei cringed.
“Just kidding, it’s not real.” Wei Suo laughed as he fished out a little bottle filled with pink liquid.
Han Weiwei was rather intrigued. “What’s that?”
Wei Suo silently smiled. “This is Skycloud Essence.”
“Skycloud essence?” Han Weiwei blushed fully. “This despicable person, why do you keep so many vile objects on you.”
Observing Han Weiwei’s reaction, Wei Suo immediately knew she understood what this Skycloud essence was. “How about I spray some on you?”
Han Weiwei scoffed. “Whatever perverted fetishes you have, just spray it on yourself. Don’t implicate me…..”
“Perverted fetish?” Wei Suo was astonished. “What perverted fetish?”
Han Weiwei glanced at him. “Haven’t you heard of Moonfall City’s Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator trying to lure a Scarlet Blaze Turtle with it. Instead, he attracted a level 6 Thunderhorn deer?”
“Wakao!” Wei Suo sympathetically replied, “That guy is really unlucky, what a tragic death.”
“No, he didn’t die.” Han Weiwei glanced at Wei Suo. “It’s just he couldn’t move for a month, and couldn’t sit down for 2 months.”
“Why can’t he move for 1 month and sit for 2 months?” Wei Suo was confused but he instantly realized with disbelief. “Don’t tell me that deer….?”
Han Weiwei harrumph as her face blushed slightly. “What do you think? Do you think you can block a level 6 demonic beast? This became the laughing topic of Moonfall City. As for that cultivator sullied by the energetic female deer, he ultimately killed the only 2 concoction masters who knew how to concoct Skycloud essence. Hence, Skycloud essence became a rare commodity. You’re pretty capable to be able to obtain a bottle…..”
“….” Wei Suo was sweating crazily. Originally, the old man said this passionate Skycloud essence would be useful against the Scarlet Beetle, he wanted to drip it on himself and walk into the ore mine; perhaps he could lure the Scarlet Beetle out. But after listening to Han Weiwei’s story, Wei Suo no longer dared to do so…..
After producing a Wolfbat out of his Treasure Receiving Pocket, Wei Suo then cautiously dripped a few drops of the Skycloud Essence onto the Wolfbat. He then dragged this wolfbat by the claw as he chose a spacious region and advanced deeper into the mine.
After roughly the time needed to burn 2-3 incense sticks, Wei Suo and Han Weiwei paused abruptly.
A sudden stampeding tremor transmitted out from deeper into the mine.
“Wakao!” Even Han Weiwei couldn’t help swearing, following Wei Suo who was still dragging along the Wolfbat, as they ran wildly towards the exit.
These densely packed horde of Crimson Beetles vastly outstripped what Wei Suo witnessed earlier, it was definitely over a hundred.
Furthermore, these Scarlet beetles were not just streaming out of the numerous channels in the ore mine. Some were even digging their way out from the cavern walls……
Actually, with their current prowess, even if there were a hundred Scarlet Beetles, they wouldn’t afraid. But seeing this wild stampede of Scarlet Beetles trampling vigorously and burrowing recklessly through the cavern walls, Wei Suo and Han Weiwei was afraid they would be buried alive if the mine collapsed.
Wei Suo frenziedly fled as he miserably cursed his wrongful assumption. Originally thinking that the Scarlet Beetles loved to gang up as a pack, but looking at this wildly berserking state of Scarlet Beetles, they obviously loved to rape. Besides, there was only 1 wolfbat now, even if that single Wolfbat was used as a whore by the Scarlet Beetles, one wolfbat was definitely not enough for them.
However, Wei Suo’s worry instantly turned unnecessary…..
Just when the he and Han Weiwei charged out into the canyon along with a horde of Scarlet Beetles hot on their trail, the pack of Beetles suddenly calmed down. An influential Scarlet Beetle with the ‘I’m the boss, let me go first’ aura marched ahead of the entire pack.
“This guy is really an evolved, Elder Scarlet Beetle.” The old man yelled out in excitement. Wei Suo could also see clearly. On this distinctly larger Scarlet Beetle with a millstone-like back shell, it had a black arrow lodged into its back. It was indeed that Elder Scarlet Beetle Wei Suo was seeking.
“Fine, on account for you still being so active even in old age, I’ll give it to you.” Wei Suo very simply tossed the Wolfbat over to the Elder Scarlet Beetle.
“You despicable man.” Her face flushed with red, Han Weiwei instantly scolded Wei Suo. Wei Suo was also slightly stupefied. Because that Elder Scarlet Beetle really pressed onto that Wolfbat, huffing and puffing, no idea what it was doing. The rest of the Scarlet Beetles circled around it, looking at them, if they could talk they would certainly be calling, “Boss, you’re the man, Boss, harder!”.
“Cut it!” Because Han Weiwei wasn’t willing to use the broadsword, Wei Suo handed his dull gold spear to her. He then used the broadsword himself.
“Try your best not to touch its shell. That Elder Scarlet Beetle is already so old, it has definitely refined some sort of defensive artifact inside the shell.” The old man instantly called out.
“Alright! Try not to touch its shell!” Wei Suo exclaimed to Han Weiwei, then he hooked out an earthen yellow, Earth Bamboo Shoot talisman and activated it.
Suddenly, the earth beneath the Wolfbat and the Elder Scarlet beetle arched up highly, forming into a stalagmite, raising the Elder Scarlet Beetle up loftily.
Their broadsword and dull gold spear ruthlessly slash against the Elder Scarlet Beetle.
Yet the Elder Scarlet Beetle had a tough abdominal carapace. With the two strikes, it only left 2 cracks.
Having its private affair foiled, the Elder Scarlet Beetle raged out with flames fuming from its nostrils. Commanding the hundreds of Scarlet Beetles, they flooded towards Wei Suo and Han Weiwei.
“You want to ride your flying artifact?” Seeing Wei Suo producing his Whitejade Crane, Han Weiwei seemed to tear up.
“We’ll just suspend on top, not gonna sway.” Wei Suo laughed as he spiralled up the Whitejade Crane. Then, an ice Dragon and an electrifying net descended onto the Elder Scarlet Beetle.
