Chapter 92: Nurturing demon liquid
The problem resided in the skill user!
This technique was similar to other techniques, there was always a chance of failure, not every execution had a 100% rate of success.
Moreover, the technique allowed only 1 demonic beast to be controlled at a time.
If any other techniques were to succeed, the former ones would be destroyed!
Hence, through Wei Suo’s four executions, only two succeeded. But amongst those 2, the first Mind Devouring Bug egg withered into a dead egg.
No wonder the Spirit Controlling Technique was so simple, it didn’t have much limitations on a person’s cultivation nor wasn’t widely known throughout the Heavenly Profound Continent, and none of the training beast sects kept it.
A level 4 infant demonic beast was exceedingly precious, it was hard to even obtain a single one. Who would use a non-hundred percent success rate skill technique to try their luck?
Even for Wei Suo, if he had more Mind Devouring Bug eggs, he would surely not risk his life to obtain that Spirit Controlling technique.
This Spirit Controlling Technique was really too risky, it was pure gambling.
According to his original intentions, he wanted to be someonesimple who reared 5 Mind Devouring Bugs.
If the 5 Mind Devouring Bugs could advance into an elder class level, slaying 3 Wen Dao Ge’s would be as easy as cake.
But Wei Suo was only in control of one now, and it was possibly the weakest Mind Devouring Bug; instead, Han Weiwei was controlling possibly the strongest one.
Wei Suo’s face grew exceedingly ugly.
He had two choices now. One was to let her keep the Mind Devouring Bug, or directly smash the egg which Han Weiwei was in control of.
“So, it ain’t my problem right?” At this moment, Han Weiwei condescendingly asked Wei Suo.
Wei Suo sighed, he made a decision right on the spot. Looking at Han Weiwei as he nodded his head. “I’m sorry, it’s indeed my fault, I shouldn’t have blamed you.”
“Eh?” With Wei Suo’s sudden change in attitude, Han Weiwei was slightly at a loss.
“Forget it, just take it as me compensating you a Mind Devouring Bug for the two Rock Tailed wall lizards I stole.” Wei Suo gazed upon Han Weiwei. “Then we’ll call it quits from now, you don’t have to be my slave anymore. How’s that?”
“Mind Devouring Bug! You said this is the egg of a Mind Devouring Bug?” Han Weiwei’s face was pale with shock. She had seen the two Mind Devouring Bugs back at the auction, and had a rough understanding on what kind of demonic beast it was.
“That’s right.” Wei Suo nodded. “You should know those two Mind Devouring Bugs at that auction were sold off by me. These eggs were obtained from their nest after killing off the Mind Devouring Bugs, it is more useful than some level 6 demonic beast.”
Han Weiwei suspiciously asked, “Then why give me the Mind Devouring Bug? Even if this bug is within my control now and cannot be controlled by someone else, you can still destroy the egg.”
“You’ve helped me save a considerable amount of spiritual stones by purchasing the Spirit Controlling Technique.” Wei Suo continued. “Furthermore, for such a loose cultivator as myself, the only way to continue living in Spirit Peak city is to raise my cultivation and strength as fast as possible. Constantly wrestling with you has no meaning. Previously regarding the two Rock tailed wall lizards, I was indeed laying in wait for a long time; to the me at that time, several low grade spiritual stones was already extremely important. So I hope you understand, and stop finding faults against me.”
Han Weiwei was slightly taken aback.
For some unknown reason, she had always felt this Wei Suo brat to be extremely vile, and constantly wished to torture and make life hard for him. But after hearing what Wei Suo said, she suddenly felt that even though Spirit Peak City had many questionably evil people, what others did was their own business; she shouldn’t have the rights to infringe on others.
“Have I gone overboard? Even if I vented my anger on him, what good is there?”
This notion unconsciously penetrated into Han weiwei’s mind.
“Just take it as you’re giving to charity, and don’t argue with a lowlife like me. A princess of the Precious Treasure Pavilion who doesn’t need to stress over spiritual stones, you shouldn’t be tormenting a loose cultivator such as myself.” Wei Suo depressedly sighed. After witnessing the spirit garden that Han Weiwei had wrecked, he was enlightened. Even if he managed to poke at her for a moment of pleasure, she would definitely get even with him and find more trouble. Such jostling around, really carried no meaning.
Even a group like the Iron policy would be plotted on by others, don’t even mention a loose cultivator with no background like himself. Who knew, the next time he went out, he might encounter a cunning villain like Lin Dao, or a more formidable demonic beast than the Mind Devouring Bug. Even if he won this grudge against Han Weiwei, if he couldn’t even preserve his life then… what was the use?
For a loose cultivator like himself, the most crucial 3 points were, power, power and more power.
“Are you saying I’m using my authority to bully people?” After hearing Wei Suo’s words, Han Weiwei became furious as she glared at Wei Suo with her ashen face. “If I really wanted to do that, just based on the prestige of my Precious Treasure Pavilion, you’d have been whacked into a pulp long ago. But since you’re begging me, then I can agree to your request; we’ll call it quits, and I won’t seek you for trouble anymore. And your Mind Devouring Bug, I won’t accept it for nothing. Weren’t those two Mind Devouring Bugs auctioned at with 7-8 thousand spiritual stones? Take it as 4000 spiritual stones. Then I’ll give you 4000 spiritual stones.”
Wei Suo smiled bitterly. Without waiting for him to speak, she directly tossed over a pouch to him, picking up that Mind Devouring Bug egg as she left.
Seeing Han Weiwei’s behavior, Wei Suo’s mouth was wide opened and he ultimately laughed bitterly to himself. Watching intently as Han Weiwei exited the Heaven Grade Residence.
After this misunderstanding with the Spirit Controlling Technique, Wei Suo didn’t feel much hatred for Han Weiwei anymore.
Because even though she was pretty unruly, she was still more sincere than most people. Her foolishness was only her immature self, and this was ultimately caused by him. If he was willing to suck it up and bear this guilt previously, and sincerely thrashing it out with her, then this matter would’ve been settled long ago. Even with a mountain of a backing, she wasn’t as arrogant as that Li Honglin from the Golden Eagle Palace.
“Hais, she really doesn’t treat spiritual stones as spiritual stones.”
After opening the pouch, Wei Suo’s dejected spirits transformed into huge laughters.
With a sweep of his eyes, the pouch contained at least over 30 high quality spiritual stones, a hundred plus mid quality spiritual stones and numerous low quality spiritual stones. From one glanced, it was well worth at least 5000 low quality spiritual stones.
After keeping this pouch, his attention was redirected back to the Mind Devouring Bug egg in hand. His face was filled with a hopelessly bitter smile.
With the incomplete Beasts Slaving booklet; although he could still upgrade this Mind Devouring Bug, but if it possessed an inherent weakness, then he would definitely have to spend more efforts.
Moreover, his planned 5 Mind Devouring Bugs had vanished into 1 left. He had no choice but to reexamine his strength, and once again felt strongly that his personal cultivation was still the most important.
“41, 953 pieces.”
During the night, within Wei Suo’s peace Heaven Grade Residence room, a pile of alluring spiritual stones heaped up before a green gowned old man. This was all he had right now.
The amount Han Weiwei had left him with totalled to 5,200 low quality spiritual stones.
Not long after the auction ended, Golden Jade Pavilion’s Lin Feng had delivered the spiritual stones gained from the sale of his merchandise over. The results was outside of Wei Suo’s expectations, minus away the miscellaneous fees of the Golden Jade Pavilion; Lin Feng handed a total of 6,500 spiritual stones to him, it was a thousand pieces more than his expected reapings.
In addition to the close to 30,000 low quality spiritual stones he had on hand, after counting carefully, Wei Suo’s total net worth was now 41,953 low quality spiritual stones.
“9-clover vermillion fruit, Frozen-tip flower, Red caterpillar fungus, a level 3 water demon pellet.”
After counting his spiritual stones, Wei Suo retrieved his Beasts Slaving booklet and started reading.
What Wei Suo was reading was the recorded basic materials to concoct the first remedy, ‘Nurturing Demon liquid’, to mature and strengthen a Mind Devouring Bug.
To nurture a demonic beast required one’s careful proceeding of steps. First, he could only use the gentlest remedy; as the demonic beast matured, he would then change to a stronger and tyrannical remedy.
After analyzing the method used to nurture the Mind Devouring Bug – ‘Nurturing Demon liquid’, Wei Suo felt rather depressed.
Even though he had amassed a huge wealth, but clearly a huge amount of it was going to be channeled to his Mind Devouring Bug. Just this beggining materials for the ‘Nurturing Demon liquid’, it was already roughly 100 low quality spiritual stones. And the booklet had noted very clearly, one of this dosage liquid could only be used for 5 days. 100 low quality spiritual stones every 5 days, the appetite of this Mind Devouring Bug was really higher than a Divine Sea Stage level 4 cultivator.
“1-2000 years ago, there weren’t many methods to nurture a demonic beast. This Beasts Slaving booklet is definitely a thousand year old recording. Hmm, are you hoping that the materials needed would be like the fireball talisman, not requiring much spiritual stones?” The old man was too familiar with Wei Suo, observing his face he could tell what Wei Suo was thinking. He dragged out his spiteful tone. “Nurturing out such a powerful demonic beast, one that could even slay other beasts to earn more stones. You’re hoping it’s a hen that lays golden eggs, yet you don’t wish to feed it?”
“No matter how expensive, you should still do it. A Mind Devouring Bug is definitely more useful than a spirit weapon.” Wei Suo sighed as he picked up the Ghost Raising Jar. “Let’s go.”
The old man was slightly startled. “Go? Where to?”
“To buy Golden Spirit Pellets, Cyan Beetle Demon Pellets, Fire-earth Dragon’s Blood and the materials to nurture this beast.” Wei Suo glanced at the old man. “Didn’t you want me to bring you out for a shopping spree?”
“Right! Let’s go and visit the night market! Buy, I need to buy!” The green gowned old man turned ecstatic.
