Tang Tian looked around curiously.
The gigantic warehouse had rows after rows of iron cupboard frames, with many different types of star spirit beast specimens arranged neatly on them. The number of them were countless, causing Tang Tian to see stars, and there were many transparent crystal vessels with different drops of blood floating, other than the commonly seen red color, there was silver, blue, black etc.
Tang Tian, being a country bumpkin, was like a villager entering the city for his first time, upon entering, his mouth was wide open. But for safety, Bell had him wear a mask. Tang Tian took out the orangutan mask, she, who hated it so much, immediately bought him a new one.
Especially that the mask had a set of glasses on it, it looked extremely weird.
“Little Bell, I don’t have any good blood meridians recently.” An old voice came out from behind a iron cupboard frame nearby.
Tang Tian and Bell rushed towards the sound, to see a old white haired man wearing a grey apron, using a lot of effort in an attempt to put a crystal vase the size of a pail on the cupboard. The crystal vase was filled with transparent and colorless liquid, with 10 silver fish swimming here and there, being extremely lively.
Upon seeing them, Tang Tian immediately extended out his hand and reached out, without any effort he placed the crystal vase on the frame. He then saw clearly, the silver fish were actually 10 drops of silver drops of blood.
Sensing Tang Tian, they all suddenly stopped, and retreated.
“Thank You!” The old man wiped his sweat, and laughed: “This is the silver mole blood meridians, so we have to be careful. Little brat you are very strong, what strength type blood meridians are you using?”
The old man took a glance at the old man’s mask, but was not taken aback. There were many people who did not want to expose their identity.
“Blood meridians huh, I used the Dwarf Blood Meridians and Angel Blood Meridians.” Tang Tian exposed a thinking expression.
“Double blood meridians?” Old Man Fei was taken aback.
“Old Man Fei, this is my boss.” Bell introduced: “This time, I am not here for Pipa. My boss wanted to clarify what the blood meridians are in his body.”
“So it’s like that, to be able to accommodate double blood meridians, for your body to be able to bear it, your ability is special. Follow.” Hearing that Tang Tian was Bell’s boss, he became even more welcoming, and was secretly joyous. Bell had frequently come to his shop to purchase different new blood meridians to treat Pipa, and was very close to her. Although she was young, but she had plenty of experiences, with a good attitude, to be willing to accept a boss, he must be financially robust.
The research on blood meridians, was equivalent to burning money, which he was very hard pressed for now.
Following Old Man Fei, they reached a workplace many instruments spread across the place.
“The place is slightly messy, please don’t mind it.” Old Man Fei felt slightly awkward, with so much junk all over the place, it felt that there was not even enough space to step. He immediately cleaned the place up for everyone to stand.
“How do you identify blood meridians?” Tang Tian was curious.
“There are many ways.” Upon touching on his work, Old Man Fei immediately became more lively, more glib and talked non stop: “For example the Ke Shi evaluation method, or the Set valuation method, every blood meridian specialist researcher, will have their own methods. For example I like to use the Wave valuation method.”
“Wave valuation method?”
“That’s right, any type of blood meridian contains different forms of energy waves, which are actually not chaotic or mixed up, but they follow a set of rules. The strength of the wave, the range of the wave, the changes of the wave etc etc, all of these blood meridians are all different and unique. Like there are no two tree leafs that are exactly the same in the world, this world does not have blood meridians which are the same in any form.” Old Man Fei said with confidence.
“Sounds reasonable!” Tang Tian nodded, without waiting around, he straightforwardly said: “Then let’s begin!”
“Ok, the fee is 500 thousand star coins.” Old Man Fei informed.
“No problem!” At this time, Tang Tian was very generous, His mind was filled with only one thought, and that was to find out if it was possible that his body contained some special blood meridians.
Old Man Fei took out a needle set, and drew about half a tube of blood.
Seeing the blood drop that looked ordinary, Old Man Fei heaved a sigh of relief, the more abnormal the blood meridian, there would be different characteristics, and the most easily seen was the color.
It should not be too high grade, Old Man Fei thought in his heart. He took the test tube and put it in a triangle silver plate. The three corners of the triangle suddenly became alive, extending like a lotus root, it covered the test tube.
“The first step, we will test its energy wave’s strength.” Old man Fei explained, “This [Triangle Energy Plate], is something that I have spent a huge sum of money to purchase. The Triangulum Constellation silver treasure is Northern Sky grade, and it has seen a lot of use with so many years of research.”
In the midst of speaking, he was somewhat proud of himself. The Triangle Energy Plate was a powerful and useful treasure. Actually the price of it was not expensive, if not he would not had been able to purchase it. For him to use the wave valuation method, was because he was completely forced to do it. Due to the treasure’s usage of waves, all his research were started from it.
All of the uses of the Triangle Energy Plate were all dug up by him, and the wave valuation method was one of them.
But, you had to say that Old Man Fei still had some skills, to be able to use the wave valuation method with outstanding results. But Old Man Fei did not have the talent of doing business, although he had countless results, but he was unable to sell.
500 thousand star coins, that was just a price he had blurted out to probe Tang Tian, for in his heart, 200 thousand was enough.
But never did he expect, Bell’s boss would instantly agree, and not even haggle. This caused Old Man Fei to have other thoughts, and laughed, “For this time it would take a while, let us have some tea and chat.”
Bell glanced at Old Man Fei, “You have tea here?”
Old Man Fei was immediately stunned, but he had lived for so many years, and his skin had grown thick. He naturally laughed, “Sorry sorry! Then why don’t we go take a look at this Old man’s collections?”
Bell immediately understood Old Man Fei’s thoughts, but she did not have any objection. Old Man Fei’s standards were good, if not for him being weird with his research, he would had been extremely rich.
“Good!” Tang Tian said out loud excitedly.
Old Man Fei was overjoyed, he had wanted to market a few blood meridians, and immediately brought Tang Tian and Bell to view his precious collections room.
Upon entering his collection room, Tang Tian felt 10 types of different Qi welcoming him. The surprising feeling came from the collect room that was not big. All the cabinets around had different types of test tubes all neatly packed, all of them held different colored blood.
All of these drops of blood were obviously and definitely much more outstanding than those outside. All of them emitted special Qi which Tang Tian could feel. Anyone else would ignore it, but Tang TIan’s intuition was extremely sharp, and he could feel all the minute differences between the drops of blood.
“These are all my achievements after all these years.” Old Man Fei had a mysterious look. He looked proudly at the test tubes on the cabinets, without any shame he said, “I am different from other people. All the blood meridian specialists, have the same goal, to create the strongest blood meridian. Out of all of them, some of them merge different blood meridians, to test and create an even stronger blood meridian. The rest, rely on grooming out even purer blood meridians, they believe that the purer the blood meridians, the more accumulation of power there is. But my achievements belong to the third group, which is definitely different from them. I believe that all the type of blood meridians, are like some kind of huge mineral resource, as their compositions are extremely complicated. Any type of blood meridian there is now are all impure, but there will always have some bits of ancient blood meridians. And I like to constantly separate them, and through this process, I achieved many special blood meridians.”
“If you want to know, out of the many blood meridians now, many of them have composition of ancient blood meridians.” Old Man Fei pointed to one of the test tube, “See that blue blood there, isn’t it pretty like a blue gem. That is the Blue Ice Lizard blood meridian. That ancient race has already disappeared for more than 60 thousand years. Their blood consist of extremely strong water affinity power, upon absorbing it, your body can even become like water.”
Tang Tian jumped in surprise, “So powerful?”
Bell snorted by the side, “Boss, don’t listen to his nonsense! His blood meridians, all of them are severely defected, until now, he has not groomed out one without defects. So no one would buy.”
Being exposed in the face, Old Man Fei could not do anything, but laugh, “What can I do, for such a blood meridian, you can only find a little bit in a few blood meridians, but they are extremely thin. But, even if it’s so, it is still very powerful! Those people are all cowards, hmph, if they used all these blood meridians, they will definitely know how bad their own ones are!”
Although absorbing the blood meridians could increase the power of the body, but Tang Tian still kept a cautious attitude. The digesting of the blood meridian power was also not easy.
He suddenly thought of something, “I have the Lupus race people, what kind of blood meridians are suited for them?”
Old Man Fei’s expression swayed, “The lupus race are descendants from the ancient Heavenly Martial Werewolf race, but, in their blood meridians, all the accumulated Heavenly Martial Werewolf blood meridians are extremely thin. The current lupus race blood meridians, are descendants of the ancient wolves race, while the ancient wolves have the highest composition, that’s why all of them are extremely chaotic and heterogeneous. They have difficulty awakening their own blood meridians, they require the Awaken Blood Spring to activate their blood meridians. I have once researched the blood meridians of Lupus constellation, and the Heavenly Martial Werewolf Blood meridians, I have managed to only touched a little bit of it.”
He took out a test tube from the cabinet, and inside it floated a moon colored drop of blood.
It was not only the same color, but the shape was also like the moon, but a waning moon that was bitten.
It quietly floated in the test tube.
