The City of Terror Chapter 386 The Benefits of the Scarlet Pheasant Corpse
God! Save me, please!
Xiao Bei felt like they were so high in the air that they should be governed by God. As such, he started praying and hoped that the girl wouldn’t stare so hard at his face.
This was a very unpleasant feeling and for someone as sensitive to the world around him as Xiao Bei, it was practically torture.
“Lady, could you let me get out? ”
In the end, he had no choice but to use the secret technique of the ‘urine escape’. He stayed in the toilet for a good hour and finally came out once someone knocked on the door.
Luckily, the girls’ attention had shifted to the meal provided by the air service when he returned to his seat.
Nothing much happened along the way. It wasn’t until the plane landed and Wei Xiao Bei prepared to leave the airport that the girl tugged at his sleeve and stuffed a piece of paper in his hand. The girl then left with a blush on her face.
Wei Xiao Bei was a bit stunned. He opened the piece of paper and saw a name on it- Zhang Jin Hua. A series of numbers followed behind it. It was probably a phone number.
Was this an invitation to a one-night stand?
Xiao Bei tried his best to remember the appearance of the girl earlier. He then looked at the piece of paper again. He shivered. Xiao Bei crushed the piece of paper and then simply threw it into a bin beside him.
However, Xiao Bei would never expect that this would only be his first meeting with Zhang Jin Hua.
Xiao Bei got into his SUV and immediately headed for the dojo. It was now fifteen past three in the afternoon.
He opened the doors of the dojo. Wei Xiao Bei immediately saw the wooden stand at the back of the door and a large piece of paper pinned to it. A sentence was written on it: “Master, my father has fallen sick. I need to return to see him. ”
The characters were neat and pretty. It was Zhu Xin Yi’s handwriting. Another row of squiggly lines was written below with slanted and tilted characters here and there. Wei Xiao Bei only understood what they meant after spending some time trying to comprehend the letters: “Master, my mom seems to have found a guy. I got to go back and keep an eye on her for a while. I don’t want a stepfather! ”
Xiao Bei gave Zhu Xin Yi a phone call after reading the message.
As her master, he felt like he should show more care for his female disciple.
Once the line connected, Xiao Bei asked about her father’s condition. Zhu Xin YI hesitated for a moment and expressed that it was no big matter.
Well, in truth, her father had fallen sick. However, it was only a small illness and the true reason for calling her back was to make a match for her.
Over where Zhu Xin Yi came from, it was common to even marry at eighteen or nineteen.
There were plenty of girls who became mothers before they finished university.
Moreover, the person who Xin Yi would be meeting with was the son of her father’s comrade in the army.
Zhu Xin Yi was a generous person and had pretty and pure looks, while the son of his father’s friend was a lieutenant in the police at a young age. He might not have cracked countless amounts of cases, but he had still made a name for himself and had a bright future ahead of him.
One was a talented man and the other was a pretty lady. The relationship between both of their parents was also very close. Naturally, both families hoped their children would marry each other and build upon their already tight bonds.
In the past, given her quiet personality, Xin Yi would never have rejected the arrangements of her parents.
However, after her experience in the Dust World, she could no longer tie herself down to a family marriage at such an early age. Moreover, she couldn’t possibly settle with the son of his father’s friend.
Thus, Xin Yi fell into a stalemate with her parents.
Initially, she wanted to take a page from Xiao Bei’s book and pull out a shield to shut her parent’s mouth.
The best shield in this scenario was undoubtedly her master Wei Xiao Bei.
However, she hesitated when Xiao Bei called her. She thought for a moment with a blush on her face, but in the end, she couldn’t muster the courage to explain the situation to him.
Wei Xiao Bei was no longer worried and now turned to look at the words that Huang Kun had left behind. He couldn’t help but twitch his mouth. It seemed it was time for this brat to go practice his handwriting.
As for him going to keep an eye on his mother and stop the appearance of a stepfather, Xiao Bei couldn’t comment on it. This was a personal family matter and a master like himself didn’t have the space to talk about such a thing.
Of course, Wei Xiao Bei still gave a call to Zhou Rong and confirmed Huang Kun’s whereabouts.
If this brat went missing, he would be the one troubled in the end.
After dealing with the matters of his two disciples, Wei Xiao Bei gave Wei Xing Wu a call and had him come over. He then told him about Steven and the others, while also having Ge Da Tian’s clone establish an Oath Talisman for Wei Xing Wu.
However, the Oath Talisman that the clone established was a bit weaker than those created by Ge Da Tian himself.
However, Wei Xiao Bei didn’t mind. The most important effect of the Talisman was still its ability to detect whether his subordinates were loyal.
Wei Xing Wu had great connections overseas. The issue of receiving Steven and the rest was in good hands when left to him.
As for the matter of the identities of Steven and the soldiers, he left it to Shan Bing.
With the influence of his family, arranging for the identities of a dozen people wouldn’t be much trouble.
Xiao Bei finally let out an actual breath of relief after dealing with all these problems.
He would be lying if he said the pressure of being in Hawaii hadn’t been immense.
After all, he was going against a country in secret!
If his identity was revealed, even his country would not be able to guarantee his safety.
This wasn’t a small matter at all.
Simply put, Wei Xiao Bei’s actions were chipping away at the foundations of America and America was not a country that would take it lying down.
Think back in the past when a certain European hacker accidentally did something and pissed off America. In the end, they were captured by American agents and brought back to the country, where they were still missing to this day.
Moreover, if it was truly necessary, they could even send out a special force to assassinate Wei Xiao Bei.
Wei Xiao Bei wasn’t worried about his safety if such a thing happened. He wouldn’t the one in the most danger. Rather, it would be his friends and family who would be at risk.
Xiao Bei would never want to see such a thing happen.
Fortunately, he did not leave any evidence behind during the operation this time. Steven and the others would be safe once they entered the borders of China. At the very least, the agents of America would not have an easy time trying to find Steven in China.
More importantly, Wei Xiao Bei intended to bring Steven and the others over for plastic surgery once they arrived safely. That would increase their safety as well.
After settling all these matters, Xiao Bei napped on the outdoors deck chair for a while. He soon woke up and drank from the cup of tea beside him.
It was then that he remembered something. His [Response Search] was activated and he scanned the entirety of the dojo. After confirming that there were no spying gazes, he retrieved the corpse of the Scarlet Pheasant from within the storage bag.
This storage bag was truly excellent. After such a long time, the corpse of the Scarlet Pheasant was still boiling. The heat was radiating off the dead body and not a single trace of rot could be seen even on the wounds. A drop of fresh blood dripped from the corpse and landed on the withered grass below. It instantly erupted in flames as if it had fallen into a tank of gas.
What powerful blood!
This Scarlet Pheasant was truly amazing. Though its actual body was extremely weak, its ability of pyromancy was very formidable.
Though Xiao Bei had already seen the Pheasant twice, he was still very curious about its attributes. Thus, he threw a [Status Appraisal] at the Scarlet Pheasant’s corpse.
However, he became slightly disappointed when the status board appeared in his mind.
Name: Scarlet Pheasant Corpse (Rare)
Introduction: The fresh corpse of a Scarlet Pheasant
Effect 1: Scarlet Pheasant blood can be harvested and used to improve fire resistance.
Effect 2: Scarlet Pheasant feathers can be harvested. Said feathers possess flames of their own and can be used to make arrows.
Effect 3: Rare-quality Scarlet Pheasant meat can be harvested.
No doubt trying to see the Scarlet Pheasant’s abilities through its corpse was not possible.
Still, this Scarlet Pheasant corpse was truly a treasure. Xiao Bei could harvest the blood to improve fire resistance, the feathers for arrows and the meat for a rare-quality material.
After a moment’s hesitation, he brought the corpse to his mouth and started sucking the blood without regard for the boiling temperature.
For a moment, Wei Xiao Bei felt like he had just drunk a bowl of lava. The boiling hot Pheasant blood ran down his throat quickly and wherever it went, it felt as if a fire was spreading. Both his tongue and throat seemed to be scalded and even scorched black from the heat.
Fortunately, he had a very powerful regeneration ability. An ordinary person would probably have burnt to ashes in an instant if they drank this blood!
This demonstrated that even treasures were relative to the person. If one could not endure the treasure, it would be nothing but poison to them.
As the boiling blood continued to be absorbed by his body, Xiao Bei was shocked to find that the warm stream formed by the blood had entered his meridian after being absorbed by his stomach. Moreover, after assimilating with the aura in his meridian, they had formed an invisible fire aura that coursed through his entire body.
This was actually like being on fire.
This sudden change caught Wei Xiao Bei by complete surprise.
In just seconds, his body had started boiling. The heat was coming out of his pores and even the wooden chair he was sitting on started to give off a burnt smell.
Xiao Bei could no longer sit still at this moment. The fire wasn’t just coursing through his veins, but it felt as if his entire body was on fire. The immense pain was this close to consuming him.
Xiao Bei instantly leaped up from the chair and rushed toward the toilet in his room.
As the cold water from the showerhead landed on Xiao Bei’s body, it gave up a sizzling sound akin to a piping hot metal being placed in water.
The toilet was soon covered in steam.
As the cold water landed on his body, Wei Xiao Bei felt much better.
The aura coursing through his meridian also started to cool down with time.
Finally, when Wei Xiao Bei felt a bit of coolness from the cold water above, he wrapped a towel around himself and came out of the shower.
