Chapter 79 - Triggering An S-rank Quest
“Quail… An Chunchun.” ¹
Luo Tian smiled, “That’s a good name and suits you perfectly.”
Chunchun matched her image of being cute and pure looking. Coupling with that name made her even more adorable in Luo Tian’s eyes.
“Big brother, are you going to capture me?” Asked An Chunchun while eating and staring at Luo Tian with her big round eyes filled with fear.
But at least it was better than before. An Chunchun’s cautious attitude seemed to have lessened a bit.
After the move of “hero saving the beauty” and another move of “presenting delicious grilled meat,” this had practically captured the heart of the Fox Demon lolita.
Luo Tian was startled and asked: “Why would I want to capture you?”
An Chunchun pouted her little lips before muttering softly: “Capture me and then sell me to those aristocratic clans. Many members of my race have been captured for this reason. My mother… my mother was…”
“My mother was also captured and taken away, waaa~...”
Her stubborn little mouth couldn’t hold it in anymore as she started crying loudly when thinking of her mother. Tears streamed down her face and made plop plop sounds hitting the ground.
Her crying was like a downpour causing anyone’s heart to ache from seeing it.
Even Feng Lei had a face full of rage as he angrily asked: “Who the f*ck is this vicious?”
An Chunchun grabbed onto Luo Tian’s leg and pitifully begged: “Big brother, can you save my mother?”
That pitiful looking face almost made Luo Tian’s heart shatter.
Luo Tian then asked in a serious manner: “Do you know where your mother is?”
“My mother is at…”
“I, I, I don’t know where, waaaa~...” An Chunchun started crying again from the pain as if she had lost everything dear to her. “I only heard those people mention that they were going to take mother to the Heavenly Sword City for an auction. Big brother, what is an auction?”
Luo Tian started frowning.
Heavenly Sword City, the royal capital!
That place wasn’t a poor remote village like the Jade Mountain City. Experts were like clouds there and someone at the Profound Master realm was considered nothing. Wanting to rescue An Chunchun’s mother from there was a near impossible task!
If it were an auction...
How was he to take out tens of millions of gold?
Luo Tian’s mind was in pain as he secretly clenched his fists. Since he had promised her, he’ll at least have to make an attempt at helping.
Luo Tian couldn’t help feel some heart ache upon seeing An Chunchun’s tears.
He didn’t want to see An Chunchun cry ever again. Such a cute and pure lolita should be growing up surrounded with happiness. Then… then… never mind.
Luo Tian patted An Chunchun’s head and said: “Big brother promises you that he will definitely rescue your mother.”
“Pinky swear?” An Chunchun extended out her pinky in a very serious manner.
For her, rescuing her mother was the greatest thing in her life so one had to pinky swear on it. Only after a pinky swear would the promise become in effect making Luo Tian help her.
In her own little world, a pinky swear was similar to signing a contract. One would then comply by the stipulations and complete the task.
Luo Tian extended out his pinky finger and hooked it with An Chunchun’s little pinky. He then recited with her: “Pinky swear, fingers hooked, nothing will change in a hundred years. Whoever does will become a little dog…” ²
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for triggering an S-rank quest!”
Quest: Rescue An Chunchun’s mother.
Quest Time Limit: One year
Quest Reward: 1,000,000 experience points, 10,000 profound energy, a random Earth Grade martial skill, and the favorability from An Chunchun increases by 10,000 points.
“An S-rank quest… these types of hidden quests was actually triggered by me? I’m simply too awesome that I’m starting to fall in love with myself.” Luo Tian’s blood was boiling as he never imagined a single promise with An Chunchun would activate an S-rank quest. He was way too shocked!
One needs to know how rare these S-rank quests are in video games.
One could traverse the entire map and still might not encounter these quests that go against the heavens.
In the many years of playing video games, Luo Tian never encountered an S-rank quest before. That’s why his whole body was boiling in excitement right now.
Looking at the potential rewards again...
Gaining 1,000,000 experience points and 10,000 profound energy weren’t considered much.
The key was gaining an Earth Grade martial skill!
Within the Tianxuan Continent, a Grade 9 martial skill was already a super existence. Now suddenly an Earth Grade martial skill was given just like that - this was simply too amazing!
And the most important part...
An Chunchun’s favorability would increase by 10,000 points.
What can 10,000 favorability points do?
Damn, there’s no need to elaborate on this right? This type of favorability would mean he could do whatever he wanted, whatever positions he… uhhh...
Luo Tian’s evil desires had risen again.
Luo Tian carefully looked over the quest again and said to himself: “The quest has a time limit of one year, which means within this one year, Chunchun’s mother should be still safe.”
“Only one year’s time.”
Luo Tian’s mind tightened as he felt the weight on his shoulders had increased by another level. But no matter what, he had to complete this quest.
Even if it weren’t for the quest rewards, he still had to help An Chunchun.
With this one year’s time, he had to fully prepare himself.
The Heavenly Sword City, a place he had to make a trip to!
Luo Tian took a deep breath before comforting An Chunchun: “Chunchun must be good; big brother will definitely rescue your mother. Whatever big brother promises, he will definitely accomplish.”
An Chunchun looked up at Luo Tian and with a naive voice: “I know, we pinky swore with each other so I believe big brother will do as he promised.”
How could he disappoint such a pure and adorable lolita?!
Luo Tian slightly frowned and gently patted An Chunchun’s head, “Fatty, let’s continue killing.”
Feng Lei hefted the Tang Blade onto his shoulders and grinned foolishly, “Understood!”
Luo Tian lifted Chunchun onto Ghost Dragon’s back and said through his mind: “Ghost Dragon, your job is to make sure An Chunchun is safe at all times.”
Ghost Dragon’s black eyes made a slight tremor.
On top of Ghost Dragon’s back, An Chunchun started giggling: “So your name is Ghost Dragon. From now on, I will call you Little Dragon, heehee…”
Luo Tian loudly yelled out.
At the same time...
Luo Tian released his senses that stretched out to the maximum surface area because he was trying to locate the Thousand Year Zombie King. He needed demon cores, lots and lots of demon cores!
If An Chunchun’s mother was really being auctioned off, he needed enough money to purchase her!
Luo Tian only had one year’s time and that was too short. He now had to desperately make money, level up, and prepare for everything.
Luo Tian took a step out...
And the killing intent released from his body became even more imposing.
Compared to before, he was even crazier now like a berserk demon.
Jade Mountain City.
At the city’s south entrance, the entire Zhu family was standing in two rows with a serious expression on their faces.
Not long after...
Three figures slowly entered sight.
They were riding on top of large beasts with colorful markings on them. Each one of them had a proud expression on their face; a kind of arrogance that showed they were above the rest.
The one in the lead was a handsome youth with a look of indifference. His eyes contained a deep contemptment that he didn’t hide. Upon looking at the Jade Mountain City, he coldly sneered: “Jade Mountain City, this daddy has returned!”
The strongest trump card of the Zhu family!
The number one outer sect disciple of the Azure Cloud Sect!
There were already several inner sect elders that have contacted him hoping that he would be their disciple. Even the Sovereign knew of him and gave him praises.
A nineteen year old who was at the peak of the Profound Master 9th rank!
He was an existence that could look down on the entire Jade Mountain City.
A true expert had arrived!
The high profile arrival of Zhu Changfeng had shaken the entire Jade Mountain City!
¹ - An Chun means quail (a bird), so it’s a play on words.
² - The pinky swear rhyme is different in every country.
