Chapter 26: Chapter 26: Confinement Fortress
Well, how could she describe this? Chaotic?
There were many people here, crowded even… and they were doing different things.
There were people that let their demonic beasts fought against each other on the top of the arena while as their masters they put their bet on their demonic beast to win. The people around them also put their bet on their favorite demonic beast.
[Hell Hound] VS [Root Deer]
Betting Ratio = 10 : 6
Tang Li Xue dumbfounded: 'Isn't this like cockfighting? But rather than cocks, they using Demonic Beasts instead!'
When Tang Li Xue came in, the [Hell Hound] already bit [Root Deer]'s neck tightly as its blood gushed out fiercely.
[Root Deer] struggled hard to break away but it was in vain, just as everyone thinks that there was no hope for the [Root Deer] to win, it taps on the ground with its hoof and…
A tree spike came out from the ground and pierced the [Hell Hound] stomach!
The [Hell Hound] released its bite and lied down powerlessly on the ground, it wailed loudly in pain as his blood poured out nonstop from its wound.
"You dipsh*t! You make me lost a lot of money! F*ck! What the use I feed you every day!" The tall guy probably was the [Hell Hound]'s owner but there was no compassion in his words as he keeps cursing his [Hell Hound] and he even kicks it several times without care about its life and death.
'Hahaha… I win! Yeeeesss! Pay, quickly pay me all of you! Hahahaha…" This scrawny guy was [Root Deer] but he only thought of his own bet and money even though his [Root Deer] was actually in no better shape than the [Hell Hound] though it still stood up unsteadily for now.
Tang Li Xue watched them full of disgust and contempt; she can't even distinguish which one was humans anymore!
It was different from her previous world where if their dog or cat sick like having a fever, they would bring it immediately to a veterinarian.
She quickly went in deeper and ignored all of those inhuman owners.
Tang Li Xue deactivated all of her skills except [Stealth] since she did not need it in here.
Inside the giant dome, other than demonic beast's arena, there were many of them sell many kinds of demonic beasts from small to big inside the cage or its unhatched eggs even their beast cores.
There were also some vendors that sell pills and herbs, some even sell all kinds of weapons like sword, saber, etc.
'This is the black market, isn't it? To think there is a black market at this size inside the farm! It's operating at midnight too!'
Tang Li Xue spent a few hours to explore this black market, at first she was quite interesting on the things their offer but she quickly lost her interest and look around quickly to save her time.
Well, it was not like she could but anything here! She was a fox after all! And she was also very poor! Watching those things will only make her drool but she cannot have it and could only watch it from afar.
Of course, she could try to steal it but the majority of people here were wearing blue-robe, in other words, most of the people here were at Qi Condensation Stage!
Some of them even wearing red-robe and black robe! Core disciples and elders!
Even someone as daring as Tang Li Xue, she did not want to throw her life in vain here!
When Tang Li Xue finished exploring the black market and went out, she realized that the night almost over.
She only had one or two more hours before the sun truly raise come but she quickly calm down since only one more building left for her to explore.
'Only one more! It should be enough! It should not be a problem if I handle it more carefully this time!'
Tang Li Xue did not waste any more time and headed to the last building!
The last building located at the most remote and barren place on the farm.
This time the building was like a small fortress. Smaller than the big dome and the weird pagoda from before but did not know why Tang Li Xue felt a strong pressure coming out from this small fortress.
Tang Li Xue raised her guard to the max in an instant since even the weird pagoda full of Flash Bats from before did not emit any noticeable strong pressure like this small fortress.
In other words, whatever creatures inside here, it was definitely far stronger than all of the Flash Bats in the weird pagoda combined.
'Sigh… I want to go home already! I miss my bed in Xiao Hei's room so badly!'
But she did not want to give up, not after all the effort, danger, and fighting that she had been through! She had no other choice other than moving forward and finishes this quest as soon as possible!
Tang Li Xue activated her [Stealth], [Odorless], [Trail Cover], [Silencer], and [Erasing Presence] skills like before to scout the situation first like before.
Surprisingly, the double-door gate was not locked. Tang Li Xue could push it easily and enter.
The light was quite dim inside with only a few torches that illuminate the interior.
At least, Tang Li Xue did not need to use her [Night Vision] to see her surroundings.
Small fortress interior also nothing impressive since it was quite hollow in Tang Li Xue's opinion.
The space inside was also very narrow unlike the fortress at all. At least, for Tang Li Xue it was really narrow despite its size from the outside.
'Meh… Suit my taste then! I can explore it faster if this place is only this small!'
Since this small fortress looks safe, Tang Li Xue turned off all of her infiltration skills again except [Stealth].
But when turned them off…
"Oᴏᴏʜ… Aʀᴇ ʏᴏᴜ ʟᴏsᴛ, ᴋɪᴅ? Wʜᴇʀᴇ ᴀʀᴇ ʏᴏᴜ ᴄᴏᴍᴇ ғʀᴏᴍ?"
Tang Li Xue's heart almost leaped out from her mouth when the giant red eyes opened up in front of her.
When the gigantic creature rose its head, Tang Li Xue that still trembling in fright manages to get a good look at its true form.
'This… This… Isn't this A DRAGON?! A TRUE DRAGON IN FLESH! Isn't the guide said that the true dragon and phoenix only exist in Divine World?!'
The creature in front of her actually resembled the western dragon in fairy tale book!
[Species: Red-Eyes Winged Lizard]
'Or… Not… So it is not a dragon…'
But it really closes enough with its brown scales, red eyes, and a wide pair of bat-like wings.
At first, Tang Li Xue was really scared but after she saw countless chains as thick as the barrel tightly bounded that [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard], her fear vanished in an instant.
Moreover, although its figure was very scary and intimidating but Tang Li Xue could feel that this fake dragon was actually quite kind and warm-hearted from its words since if it wanted to kill her, he would done so already without asked something like that.
'[Rare] grade?! Level 65! Damn! This fake dragon must be only one step away from evolving into a spirit beast!'
"Sɪɢʜ… Sᴏ ʏᴏᴜ ᴀʀᴇ sᴛɪʟʟ ᴏɴʟʏ ᴀ sᴀᴠᴀɢᴇ ʙᴇᴀsᴛ… Iᴛ ʟᴏᴏᴋs ʟɪᴋᴇ I ғᴇᴇʟ ᴛᴏᴏ ʟᴏɴᴇʟʏ ɴᴏᴡ ᴜɴᴛɪʟ I ᴅᴇɢᴇɴᴇʀᴀᴛᴇ ᴍʏsᴇʟғ ᴀɴᴅ ᴛᴀʟᴋɪɴɢ ᴛᴏ ᴀ ᴅᴜᴍʙ sᴀᴠᴀɢᴇ ʙᴇᴀsᴛ. "
The fake dragon sighed in disappointment and it starting to depress over himself.
'Okay, I changed my mind… this dumb fake dragon is not kind and warm-hearted at all!'
