Chapter 165 - There's A Mountain Of Demon Cores In My Home
When he casually picked up a demon core...
The system inexplicably gave off an alert tone.
What's going on?
"Congratulations to player Luo Tian for gaining a gold attributed demon core. Do you wish to consume it?"
"A gold attributed demon core?"
Luo Tian was a bit startled and his mind was slow to react to this situation. He then mumbled: "Gold, wood, water, fire, earth… a gold attributed demon core? Holy crap, it's really a demon core of the five elements! And I received it in such a simple fashion?"
This gave him quite a fright!
He almost pee'd his pants from it! This was simply too inconceivable.
Luo Tian never imagined that an extremely hard to get demon core of the five elements would so easily drop out from the little squirt's body. This was way too out of the blue right?!
Demon cores that contain those five attributes were the rarest amongst all cores.
It was extremely hard to obtain them.
Luo Tian had killed hundreds to thousands of rank 4 and 5 demonic beasts. Not to mention demon cores of the five elements, there weren't any cores with special properties at all. They were all just ordinary ones. After spending such a long time in the Ghostly Mountain Range, Luo Tian had become thoroughly disappointed in it. Apart from the Furious Thunder Bull and the Thousand Year Zombie King, he had lost hope with the rest. Even that rank 6 Lava Beast was the same disappointment.
Having an ancient scroll in his possession and unable to unseal it was extremely painful to him.
In order to unseal the ancient scroll and find out the treasure behind it, he had to crack the array inscribed on it first. The demon cores of the five elements were a necessary component to destroying that array.
Killing Chen Tianyao resulted in a fire attributed demon core.
Killing Yin Shang resulted in an earth attributed demon core.
Those two demon cores were gained through a difficult process. One could even say that Luo Tian had to use his life on the line before he was able to gain those items. But now that the gold attributed demon core came into his possession in such an easy manner, this happiness had arrived too sudden for him and Luo Tian almost couldn't grasp the situation properly.
Luo Tian quickly swept up the remaining demon cores on the ground to examine them. His brows scrunched up as an incomparable shocked expression appeared on his face.
The rest of the demon cores all had special properties.
Wind attribute, electric, thunder...
The only regret was that there wasn't another demon core of the five elements.
A little gnome actually possessed so many demon cores with special properties? One needs to know that any one of these demon cores would cost a million gold or more. This gnome was practically a walking treasure trove!
Luo Tian stopped smacking the gnome's butt and started smiling. He gently placed him down and started smoothing out the gnome's wrinkled clothes. Luo Tian revealed an amiable and kind smile before asking: "Big brother, do you have any more demon cores?"
Luo Tian's expression was quite disgusting and despicable right now.
It almost looked like the character Ruhua from a movie in his past life. ¹
The gnome's sphincter tightened. He looked at Luo Tian and asked in a scared tone: "What are you planning on doing?"
Luo Tian once again smoothed out the shirt on the gnome and smiled charmingly: "Big brother, I'm not doing anything. I just want to ask if you have any more demon cores. A kind and gentle person like me is not going to do anything bad to you."
Luo Tian was trying to look like a little obedient grandson.
This was the first time in his two lives.
Even Tang Jiu and Qin Yue'er off to the side were staring in a dumbfounded manner.
Luo Tian was wildly arrogant in front of a peak Profound Spirit 9th ranker yet acting humbly and subservient to a gnome like he was dealing with his grandparent. What on earth was going on?
The gnome's eyes shifted slightly around.
When he determined Luo Tian seem to be begging him for an answer, his disdainful looks were restored while he haughtily shouted: "An ugly ass human like you dares to beat me? Do you know who I am? I'm afraid you'd die of fright if I told you!"
Luo Tian maintained his subservient look and said: "You are my big brother, my real biological big brother."
Demon cores of the five elements were too important.
The main thing he had to do now was to get the earth and water demon cores, and then unseal the ancient scroll's array. Then he can find the treasure trove and gain the ancient magic. He'd then sweep through the continent, step on the Shattered Sky City, and beat Murong Wanjian until he crawls like a dog.
"I would never have an ugly ass looking little brother like you."
The gnome then announced with disdain: "I am the Prince of the gnome race and others have given me the nickname of Mr. Suave. I am the cool but reserved, one in a million, the earth shattering handsome - Fan Zhangjian!" (Model Long Sword)
"Fan Zhangjian?" (Offend it long and despicably)
Luo Tian didn't hold back and directly gave a thumbs up. He then praised: "Fan Zhangjian, what an awesome and stunning name. You parents are simply too talented to come up with that. I really can't help but admire their handiwork. Don't offend them for a short time; you might as well offend them long and as despicably as possible. It's definitely not your ordinary despicableness."
A few seconds later, Qin Yue'er and Tang Jiu realized the word play and started grunting while trying to hold back their laughter.
"You finally realize how powerful I am now huh?"
The gnome couldn't tell Luo Tian changed the word sword into despicable, and thought they all feared him. He then revealed an arrogant look and said: "Now you're afraid huh? Humph! You guys better scram away for this prince or else this prince won't be polite to you all."
Speaking up to this point...
The gnome's voice changed as he pointed at Luo Tian's forehead and said: "Especially you. You are so ugly that I feel like throwing up at the sight of you. It's best that you scram further away. As for you…"
The gnome then looked at Qin Yue'er while his saliva almost dripped out. He was especially focused on Qin Yue'er's large chest as he revealed a perverted expression. He then chuckled: "This girl isn't too bad; she would be useful in warming this prince's bed."
Qin Yue'er's eyes widened as she fiercely glared at the gnome.
Luo Tian maintained his subservient look. Since this gnome's status wasn't ordinary, he must have more demon cores of the five elements. Luo Tian's expression became even more disgusting looking as he said: "Prince Fan Zhangjian, do you have any more demon cores of the five elements?"
The gnome glared at Luo Tian and shouted: "Didn't you hear me to tell you to scram further away? You damn ugly ass…"
"Hey… what are you trying to do? I am the gnome race's prince, I am…"
Luo Tian had become angry.
He lifted the gnome up and unceremoniously started spanking his butt while cursing: "Am your sister! This daddy gave you face already but you didn't accept it. Motherf*cker, do you believe this daddy is capable of beating the shit right out of you?!"
"You damn despicable bastard!"
He continued spanking him in the air.
After several slaps, the gnome turned into a child again and started crying.
His expression no longer had the previous arrogant look.
"Do you have any more demon cores of the five elements?" Luo Tian then angrily lectured: "If I don't show you some power, you really think this daddy is a vegetarian huh? I gave you face and you didn't appreciate it. No wonder your father gave you the name Fan Zhangjian; you really are a despicable thing!"
It was only now that the gnome heard the difference between sword and despicable in his name.
He was no longer acting temperamental because his butt was hurting like he was about to die. The gnome then begged for mercy: "Stop hitting, stop it! I have it, I have it, I have as many demon cores as you want. There's a mountain of demon cores in my home so you can take as much as you want. Wuuu~... wuuu~... just stop hitting me."
A mountain of demon cores?!
How many f*cking demon cores are required to be called a mountain of them?
This means I've discovered a fortune!
