Chapter 1494: The remains of a tragic cosmic demon

Why was this customer back?

Weren’t his memories erased by the puppet maiden?

Could it be that… after his memories were erased, he had come to eat ’10 dishes’ before asking the shop owner to provide him with the escape service again?

Song Shuhang pinched his chin.

He seemed to have found a way to make a fortune.

No, no, doing such a thing would be too lowly.

Song Shuhang’s morality reminded him that doing such a way just to earn a fortune would be too despicable, and he absolutely should not do it.

The puppet maiden calmly laid out the restored table, stood up, and said, “Hello, welcome.”

“Hello.” The burly man scratched his head and looked at the restaurant.

He himself was rather baffled, not knowing why he had gone into the restaurant.

…He had some impression of this restaurant in his mind: it should be a restaurant that secretly provided an ’emergency escape’ service. The code was to finish 10 dishes in one go, and hand the plates to the shop owner.

However, why did I come here?

From what he could recall, what he wanted to do was to get rid of the strange ‘treasure’ that he recently got.

After he sent his brothers to the hospital, he immediately returned to his treasury and took out the treasure. After that, he wanted to go and look for an appraiser to appraise it.

While he was thinking of this, he had inexplicably walked all the way into this restaurant.

After stepping into the restaurant, his heart felt like it had been gripped.

The dining room table seemed to have been broken, and a beautiful girl was repairing it.

There was a big hole in the wall as if it had been hit by a sledgehammer.

What was even more frightening was that behind the shop owner, there were three men in strange armor who were stacked together with blood on their faces.

In addition, there was a streak of blood on the wall behind the shop owner.

Is this a haunted house? the burly man thought to himself. Sure enough, it’s better for me to leave this place.

While thinking of this, the burly man got ready to wave his hand and leave.

However, just as he was about to turn around and leave, he saw a strange statue in the store in the corner of his eye.

The statue seemed to be a sculpture of an immortal sitting cross-legged.

It was obviously just a stone statue, but it seemed to carry a special charm.

The burly man froze after seeing the stone statue.

His eyes involuntarily locked onto the statue.

Was this a statue of some immortal from Chinese mythology? It was obviously just a statue, but it made people feel a supreme temperament coming from it.

When he looked at the statue, his mind began to visualize an extinct immortal with an extraordinary temperament.

He should have long hair that fluttered in the wind, be dressed in spotless white clothing, and be considered a peerless existence.

The burly man unintentionally became fascinated by it.

“Ahem!” Song Shuhang calmly picked up the Senior White main body statue, and hid him behind the counter. “Customer, do you need something? Would you like to order something to eat?”

Inside the Inner World, Chu Chu had finished her practice and was meditating, reflecting on her experience fighting with a Fourth Stage caster.

If the burly man were to order something, Song Shuhang would have to pull Chu Chu out.

“Oh, ah, um.” The burly man opened his mouth, but couldn’t say a word for a long time. He craned his neck strenuously, wishing his eyes could see through the cash register and see the statue that was sitting cross-legged.

“…” Song Shuhang.

“Ah, I’m sorry. Shop owner, that statue of yours, is it the work of a great master? Can I ask that great master to sculpt one for me?” The burly man patted his chest, and said, “Money is not a problem!”

Song Shuhang replied, “Unfortunately, that master isn’t in this world.”

The statue was a combination of Senior White’s magical techniques. Where was he supposed to find that master?

The burly man scratched his head, smiled fatuously, and said, “Did he pass away? That really is a shame.”

After thinking for a while, he suddenly said, “Shop owner, where have we met before?”

After no longer being attracted by the Senior White statue, the burly man finally focused his attention on the seemingly ordinary shop owner.

The shop owner looked very young, looking to be only about 20 years old. However, there was a sense of vicissitudes on him, as if he was 40 or 50 years old. Taking the average, the shop owner should be around 30 years old, right?

For some reason, despite this ‘clearly’ being the first time he was seeing the shop owner, the burly man felt an inexplicable sense of trust toward him in his heart.

He felt that the shop owner was an omnipotent and worldly expert.

He had a hunch in his heart that perhaps he should hand over the ‘treasure’ that he had over to the shop owner for appraisal.

This feeling was inexplicable, but it felt very real.

Song Shuhang smiled slightly, not replying to the burly man’s question.

The burly man scratched his head. After giving it some thought, he gritted his teeth, lifted the black box he was carrying with him, and placed it on the counter.

The burly man said, “Manager, can you help me appraise this treasure? I want to know what it is.”

While saying that, without even waiting for Song Shuhang to agree, he directly put in the password to the box and opened it.

Inside, there was an object that looked like a black gemstone.

It was about the size of a chicken egg.

Surrounding it, there was black spiritual energy wafting around, but this was something that only practitioners could see.

At the moment when the box was opened, a whispering voice sounded.

That voice seemed to be tempting people to fall and vent their desires.

Song Shuhang disdainfully said, “This again?”

This method was quickly getting futile.

It was especially so because of the Netherworld fat ball who developed things such as ‘divine weapons’ and ‘heirloom rings’ which all carried their own whispering temptation function, tempting cultivators to fall and become evil demons of the Netherworld.

This method was simply overused by the fat ball.

Song Shuhang had become extremely resistant to this kind of whispering.

After all, how could a mere whisper compare to the 88,888 voices chanting in his mind every night?

They weren’t even on the same level.

The burly man asked, “Shop owner, do you know what this is?”

Seeing Song Shuhang’s disdainful expression, he thought, Could this object actually be worthless rubbish?

Song Shuhang calmly said, “It’s something similar to an energy core.”

This thing should be an ancient demon core. This was also what he had heard from the patterned caster. But if it were to be taken literally, it should be the energy core left behind by an ancient demon after dying.

“An energy core?” The burly man was dumbfounded. After scratching his head, he asked, “Shop owner, is this thing worth money? If it is, how much is it worth? I’m planning on auctioning it off.”

“You’re going to auction it off?” Song Shuhang looked at the burly man in surprise.

“Yes, I feel like this thing is a hot potato. Keeping it would simply bring me trouble. If I can, I want to get rid of it as soon as possible,” the burly man said with a serious face.

Song Shuhang praised, “Your willpower is quite good.”

For the burly man, an ordinary person, to be able to withstand the temptation of the murmurs of the ancient demon core and make up his mind to get rid of it, his willpower had to be very strong.

It was a pity that the other party’s age was a bit too high, and he had completely missed the ripe age for cultivation.

Otherwise, with his strong will, the Nine Provinces Number One Group might have seniors who would develop interest in him.

Song Shuhang said, “Honestly speaking, I can’t estimate the specific price of this thing, because it’d be hard to find someone who will give you money for it.”

“No one will give me money for it?” The burly man felt upset when he heard the words.

If no one would purchase it, then it would be difficult for him to get rid of it.

Song Shuhang explained, “It’s not that it isn’t worth anything; instead, it’s that it isn’t easy to use money to reflect its value.”

The burly man asked, “Shop owner, if I took it to auction it off, how much would I be able to get?”

Song Shuhang shrugged his shoulders. “It depends on the situation. If there are people who know its value, it should be able to get a high price. Otherwise, it’s hard to say.”

The burly man thought about it again, and asked, “Shop owner, do you have any thoughts on taking this energy core?”

“You want to trade it off to me?” Song Shuhang thought for a while, stretched out his hand, and tapped on the ancient demon core.

The area of the Defiant Whale Warrior’s glove that was on his fingertips receded.

As he pressed his finger on the ancient demon core, the secret appraisal technique was activated.

When the secret appraisal technique was being used, Song Shuhang’s body instantly ‘sublimated’.

Dozens of wounds appeared on his smokey body, but his smokey body quickly recovered the smoke that left it.

Information soon appeared in Song Shuhang’s mind.

Song Shuhang quickly lifted the pseudo-eternity smoke mode.

The whole transformation process had not even lasted a second.

In the burly man’s eyes, the shop owner’s figure became blurry for a moment. But then, after blinking once, he found that the shop owner was still the same.

The burly man thought to himself, Did my eyes go bad?

“Phew.” Song Shuhang gritted his teeth.

Sublimation was similar to Young Master Phoenix Slayer’s liquefaction skill, rendering him immune to the wounds that result from using the secret technique. However, the mental pain would not go away, and it still needed to be endured.

The results of the appraisal emerged.

[Cosmic Demon Race—the core of a royal blood demon. Because of it being too old, the energy contained in the blood demon core has nearly been exhausted. If you can find a way to recharge it, you will acquire a precious ‘blood demon king’s core’.]

Song Shuhang pondered, Blood demon? Come to think of it, could this be the unfortunate cosmic demon that was wrecked by the seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Group?

Cosmic demons who would be considered as major villains in movies, series, and light novels were actually a rather tragic race that would be ground to dust in the real world. Their status in the world of cultivation was equivalent to an ‘event boss’.

They were wealthy when it came to materials, and they also possessed a good deal of magical treasures, natural treasures, and spirit stones.

In the main world, there was also an organization that specialized in monitoring cosmic demons.

Whenever a cosmic demon descended, the practitioners of the world of cultivation would eagerly scramble for it.

At the Chu Family’s Grievance Settling Platform, the seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Group had benefited a lot from beating up the blood demon.

Song Shuhang asked, “This energy core, the energy contained in it is almost exhausted. However, it is still a priceless treasure. If you really want to trade it off… Will you accept gold?”

He originally wanted to ask the seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Group for some money, but he suddenly remembered that he had a lot of gold sand on him from the harvest in the Wielder’s small black room. At that time, he had taken a large amount of gold sand back in preparation to build a golden palace in the Inner World.
