“What transformation?” Tang Tian asked pressingly.
“Master, take a look.” Old Man Fei opened a bronze freezer, and took out a test tube.
The test tube had a viscous mercury substance, bringing an intense silvery white metal gloss, with some sort of tactile texture, mixed with black dots that looked like stars. It looked extremely mysterious.
“That is my blood?” Tang Tian was dumbstruck, he could not believe his own eyes.
“Yes.” Old Man Fei was somewhat fanatical. “This is the first time your subordinate has seen such a miraculous blood meridian, and, that definitely isn’t its original form. Although the composition of the silver liquid and the black dots have not been clarified yet, your subordinate dares to guess that it is actually like the Void Dark Flames and the Ice Blue Heart, and is the second lock.”
“Second lock?” Tang Tian was confused.
“Master’s blood meridians are definitely not ordinary.” Old Man Fei’s spirit was aroused: “Void Dark flames and Ice Blue Heart – Master’s blood meridian’s most outer lock is composed of two completely contrasting substances, but able to attain a miraculous equilibrium, like a lock, and also a type of protection. The silver liquid and black dots, create another brand new equilibrium. If Master wishes to excite the power of your blood meridians, you need to open up all the locks.”
“Why do my blood meridians have such things?” Tang Tian asked after thinking about it.
Old Man Fei glanced at Tang Tian, and was somewhat hesitant.
Tang Tian stared at him: “Speak whatever’s on your mind.”
Old Man Fei was embarrassed: “About that, who can be right? But this small one has a few guesses.”
“A few?” Tang Tian was startled. He did not even have any guesses, and yet Old Man Fei had thought of a few, and so he asked curiously: “What are they?”
“Let us start from all these locks. To me, the biggest use of these locks is for protection. One guess is that these are meant to protect Master’s blood meridians, and not to be used by other people. Master’s blood meridians, even if people had it, they would not be able to use it. Unless they can break all these locks, but it is way to difficult. Another possibility is to protect Master from being devoured by your own blood meridians.”
“Blood meridians can devour me?” it was the first time Tang Tian heard about it, and was confused.
“Yes.” Old Man Fei explained: “Why had those strong ancient races all been wiped out? That is because of the purity of their blood meridians, the accumulated power is too strong, so when it erupts, their body is unable to hold the burden, and would explode resulting in death. Especially for the younger ones, it happens very frequently. All the current generation battle type races have impure blood meridians, so they do not have the risk of spontaneous combustions. Actually it also is another form of transformation, to allow their race to become better.”
“Are my blood meridians very powerful?” Tang Tian was excited.
“We do not know that yet.” Old Man Fei shook his head, and continued cautiously: “This requires us to completely unravel the locks, then we will know. Maybe Master’s blood meridians are not strong, but has the possibility of being extremely sensitive, and to escape potential enemy families, that is also a possibility.”
“So as long as we continue to unravel the locks, we can clear it all up?” Tang Tian was confused with all the possibilities from Old man Fei.
“Yes.” Old Man Fei was afraid Tang Tian wanted him to instantly find out the reason, and immediately said: “That is a job that requires time, and might last for a long time. The substances of each layer of lock and their power are all unknown, and to gain clarity on them, is not easy. Luckily I had seen the Ice Blue Heart the Void Dark Flames react with each other before, so my progress has been faster this time.”
Tang Tian knew it could not be rushed, so he consoled Old Man Fei: “Just do your best.”
Old Man Fei relaxed, and laughed: “I have also been studying the Void Dark flames and Ice Blue Heart, this method of equilibrium is extremely spectacular. The person who did it is not only strong, but is also extremely proficient in blood meridians. On these two aspects, there are still some harvests.”
“I was wondering, why use the Void Dark flames and Ice Blue Heart? Why not other entities? Other than the fact that the essence of these two are contradictory, there must be some other reason. The Ice Blue Heart can cause people to be cool-headed and sharp, while the Void Dark flames use is the opposite, can cause the person to be berserk and able to utilize extreme power from the body….”
Old Man Fei kept going and kept going, speaking a large chunk of words that Tang Tian did not understand, causing Tang Tian to feel a headache.
Tang Tian was tortured for 15 minutes, and had to shut his eyes, and patted Old Man Fei on his shoulders: “Good job well done! Ok, I will leave everything to you!”
Old Man Fei was touched: “Master don’t worry, your subordinate will do his best!”
Tang Tian yawned and left.
Just as he left the room, Pa! A snow white arm locked around his neck. Sai Lei was like a female rogue locking Tang Tian down, and looked extremely intimate, but in truth she was pulling Tang Tian to walk with her.
“Ai ya ya, Little Tang Tang, it has been so long, sister here misses you.”
The sweet and greasy voice entered Tang Tian’s ears, causing Tang Tian to tremble: “Hey hey, what do you want.”
He was extremely clear of Sai Lei’s character, she was venomous as a snake, a shameless snake. Upon seeing Sai Lei, he knew she was up to no good.
“Ai ya, can’t this sister miss you?” The white fingers wriggled under Tang Tian’s chin, blowing air into his ear, the enchanting face caused people to fancy, and said: “The 1.5 billion laboratory, that is a huge sum. Sister and that poker face, only shared 3 billion, and he took more of it. This sister here is more pitiful, my current workshop is small and dilapidated, Little Tang Tang, tell me, shouldn’t you save this sister?”
Her red fingernails, toyed with Tang Tian’s chin, causing Tang Tian’s hair on his entire body to stand, this woman is not planning to cut my throat right….
But, as a man, how can I be scared of a woman?
Tang Tian calmed himself down, and laughed: “Don’t tell me you are lacking money.”
“You saw through that? Little Tang Tang is getting more powerful!” Her melodious and seductive voice, with her fingernails, was like a sharp blade edge causing Tang Tian’s heart to tremble: “I have heard, that you made 1.5 billion at Yong An City, you see, shouldn’t you support this sister? Whatever conditions you want, sister can satisfy you!”
The voice was provocative, with her warm and moist exhalation breathing into Tang Tian’s ear.
If I believed you, I’ll be damned!
Tang Tian shuddered, the hairs on his body stood extremely straight.
“That…..that requires time, Mo Wei Tian will come here to sightsee soon, and he will bring big business with him.” Tang Tian originally thought of the calamity that was striking on him, but the more he spoke, the more he thought that his idea was spectacular: “The Corvus gold we sold to Mo Wei Tian last time, was all sold to the Yong An City Master. He earned roughly 16 billion.”
Tang Tian only felt a pain at his chin, and took a deep breathe, only to hear Sai Lei scolding while clenching her teeth: “That profiteer!”
Tang Tian ignored the pain and quickly spoke: “But, he plans to give the 16 billion all to us, of course, there is a condition. And that is we must help him train a batch of students. For that, this condition does not have any concern to you. But think about it, basically you are the one constructing and giving the labor. Whatever training facilities will also be built by you, you will be doing the work. The more important thing is, to train on how to use mechanical spirit weapons, so we need you to create some also. I feel, this 16 billion, you will take half!”
Tang Tian made a solemn vow.
“That’s right! I want half!” Sai Lei’s killing intent soared: “You cannot let that poker face swallow everything!”
She turned her head, showing her dimples, she touched Tang Tian’s face: “Little Tang Tang is a good boy, it was not in vain that this sister loves you, When will Mo Wei Tian come?”
“He will come in the next two days!” Tang Tian’s smile froze on his face.
Regarding Mo Wei Tian’s journey to Three Spirits City, he was very confident. If he had lost, then he would not had earned the business. But he won, so Mo Wei Tian would definitely be unable to sit tight.
“Seems like this old woman needs to go prepare well!” Sai Lei played with her skirt, the killing intent on her face soaring, as though she wanted to kill Mo Wei Tian.
Tang Tian reminded her: “Remember to prepare two new mechanical spirit weapon designs, maybe you can sell them for a good price.”
“Relax, this old woman’s methods of doing business, compared to you, a rookie, is super strong.” Sai Lei jumped and turned to walk away.
As expected all of them were trash, to abandon their benefactor after achieving their goals…
Tang Tian secretly berated.
But this time his harvest was great, although he did not clearly solve the true riddles behind his blood meridians, but there was still progress. And after having Bell go and obtain information about the Sword Saint Wu Wang Hai, Crane said, the sword that he had pulled out from the void was called Ocean Prison.
When Tang Tian met Bell, she was excited.
“What good things have you come across?” Tang Tian asked curiously.
Bell replied happily: “Doesn’t Yong An City have a place for people to bet between fights on who will win? I thought, if Master lost, then the funds would have no meaning. So I used all the money Master gave to me, and bet it on Master to win. Now I have won a huge sum of money!”
Tang Tian was surprised: “How much did you win?”
Bell extended out 5 fingers: “500 million!”
“Wa, you have so much money now, what are you going to do with it?” Tang Tian shook his head, his face had a look of mischief, his tone full of arrogance.
“Yes yes, what should I do? I can’t spend it all!” Bell laughed out loud.
Tang Tian suddenly smacked his forehead: “I actually forgot to check my spoils of war!”
With that, he ran out.
He was extremely fast, he sped through Three Spirits City like the wind, he appeared at the recruit barracks.
Dong dong dong!
A concentrated knocking sound caused Tang Tian to be startled. But when he looked, he heaved a sigh of relief.
Ya Ya was brandishing it’s fists extremely quickly, like a small drill, ‘tu tu tu’ punching forward at a very fast speed. In a while, it had advanced over 10 m, as expected of the Swallowing Light Steel Fist!
Upon thinking about…. the plateau…. ah ha, the weather is so good today!
Ya Ya realized Tang Tian was there, quickly appearing at his leg side, it’s hands tugging at Tang Tian’s pants, pouting, showing it’s black face, tears in its eyeballs.
Tang Tian coughed and shuffled away: “As a man, you must welcome all sorts of challenges! And all the more should you share the suffering with your brothers, look, you still have your partners!”
Tang Tian pointed to the three mini mechanic beasts standing at the side.
They immediately had a look of fright, and turned to run, while Ya Ya’s face suddenly felt enlightened, and immediately chased after them.
Seeing Ya Ya dragging the three mini mechanical beasts to its original location where it was hitting the wall, Tang Tian felt relieved.
He happily prepared to return to Lupus Tribe, it was time for harvesting!
