Kinuhata Saiai fell to her knees, having lost all hopes, she turned white. Wu Yan actually felt a sense of pity. He gave her a pat on the shoulder while continuing.
"Kinuhatchan, don't be so dejected. It isn't bad to join me, at least you wouldn't need to worry about grunt work. You can eat all the tasty food you want, if you like them spicy I can also make some for you. If you like them sickeningly sweet or ridiculously sour, I can also do that. I can treat you way better than how Mugino Shizuri treated you girls. Come on, cheer up, Kinuhatchan…"
Kinuhata Saiai trembled. She didn't say anything but the white shade on her seemed to turn into a brighter shade of white.
Wu Yan shook his head and muttered: "Looks like she's going to need a bit of training."
He turned around, ignoring Frenda and Takitsubou Rikou who came over to check out the situation, he examined Kakine Teitoku's body.
Kneeling down, he rubbed his chin while scrutinizing Kakine Teitoku's body. He looked like he's considering something.
Is he interested in the body? Of course not, he didn't have that kind of fetish. He's only examining the body because of the System's notification after he instantly killed Kakine Teitoku.
"Special item detected! Special item detected!"
"Unable to retrieve special item ID: Unknown material!"
"System notification: Special item detected within the nearby body! Refinement of unknown material possible with the retrieval of the body! The user is highly advised to retrieve the item!"
It's because of this system notification that he didn't just let Kakine Teitoku's body go splat on the floor after killing him in the sky.
He is familiar with the term special item. The system had issued this kind of notification two times in the past: Back when he encountered the white crystal that granted him 200,000 Summoning Points. There's also that Mind Control Brain in his item ring.
Every time the System issue this notification, it's probably a very useful item. If it isn't a direct profit for Wu Yan, it's probably related to the requirement to remove the seal on the mysterious crystal. Of course, Wu Yan is not going to ignore System's notification.
Kakine Teitoku's body is probably the special body referred to by System.
Is there any other body the System could be referring to aside from this one?
Wu Yan sighed while looking at Kakine Teitoku. This sigh is at Kakine Teitoku's fate.
The poor bastard must have wronged the gods or maybe he did too many crimes. In the original work, he was killed by Accelerator and subsequently turned into a Dark Matter manufacturing machine.
Now, even though he got killed by Wu Yan, his body will be used for refinement purposes again.
Talk about bad luck. Heck, even Touma wouldn't be so unfortunate as this, at least he got to fondle hooters or tush when bad luck strikes.
He placed his hand on Kakine Teitoku's body and System issued a notification.
"Detected special body, special material detected within the body, please retrieve it!"
"Refine special body?"
Wu Yan felt unsure. He silently chose yes. He didn't mind that Kinuhata Saiai, Frenda, and Takitsubou Rikou are watching from the side. They probably couldn't figure out what he is trying to do anyway.
"Refining body, please confirm payment of 100,000 Item Points to proceed."
Wu Yan's face froze up, his hand also shook as he almost choked on his own saliva.
He was a fool to expect that the System would do something for him without getting anything in return. He was too naive.
Sighing, he shook his head and looked at the remaining 300,000 Item Points in his inventory window. He reminisced about something in a not-too-long-ago past.
Oh, those were the days, I remember when I almost had over 10 million Item Points…
"100,000 Item Points paid, refinement initializing…'
The robotic voice was followed by a radiant red light being emitted from the hand that he placed on the body. The red light covered his body just like that.
The sudden bright light surprised Wu Yan even though he had prepared himself for it. Kinuhata Saiai, Takitsubou Rikou, and Frenda are even more surprised.
The girls had unique reactions but they all looked at Kakine Teitoku's body, wondering what is going on over there.
They could more or less guess that Wu Yan played a role but they probably didn't know that it was a very miraculous System working deep within Wu Yan's soul.
The red light grew in intensity over time until the red light suddenly transformed into a weird state that shook and wriggled around before becoming blazing hot flames.
Wu Yan gasped and looked at his burning hand, he didn't feel any pain so he didn't bother removing his hand. Releasing a sigh of relief, he saw that the girls were too surprised to react to the series of supernatural phenomenon.
The flames engulfed Kakine Teitoku's body, it is visibly rigorous yet he couldn't feel any sort of pain coming from the flames even if he could hear it crackle. Strangely enough, even Kinuhata Saiai, Frenda, and Takitsubou Rikou couldn't feel the heat of the flames.
Strange as it is, this flame that didn't give off any heat quickly drained the body of its moisture and content.
Finally, the body was reduced to ashes and with it, the flames dissipated as well. Wu Yan felt a bit curious about the System, to think it had this kind of function as well.
Not that thinking deeper about it will solve the origin of this mysterious System. He just amused himself with the spectacle instead of ruminating about why it could do something like this.
He looked at the ground where the body once laid and saw a black stone there.
"Detected Dark Matter Crystal, this item can be to remove the seal on the mysterious crystal, the user is strongly advised to collect the item!"
Another item to unseal Mysterious crystal.
Wu Yan beamed up. He picked up the Dark Matter crystal and revealed a wide grin. Something told him that the mysterious crystal will surely bring him a big surprise.
Another surprise is just around the corner and then it happened.
A melodious tune rang from the sky, catching everyone's attention, not just Wu Yan, Takitsubou Rikou, Frenda, and Kinuhata Saiai.
The sound came from the blimp that always floated around in the sky.
After the tune played, a picture was shown along with some news on the blimp's gigantic screens. A lot of people were shocked by the news.
Among them, the Ojou-samas at Tokiwadai, Mikoto, Hinagiku and the girls, Wu Yan, Kinuhata Saiai, Frenda, and Takitsubou Rikou.
"No.3, Dark Matter a.k.a. Kakine Teitoku was defeated by a new Lv5, Lightning Flash a.k.a. Wu Yan! The lv5 ranking has been adjusted according to this transition of events. Wu Yan is now No.3 followed by the delisting of Kakine Teitoku!"
