433 Visiting Again
The monster that Bloody was fighting was a human-form monster. It had four limbs and walked upright on both feet. It looked like a seven to an eight-year-old child of 1.2 meters height with a face that was similar to a human child's. However, its skin was blue, and there was a ten-centimeter-long black horn on its head and a blue tail behind it. Lin Huang immediately recognized that it was the Undead Devil Child that Bloody was looking for.
Lin Huang was puzzled as he watched the chaotic fight. Bloody had the ability to parasitize through shadows whereby it could just leech directly onto the monster instead of fighting it at a close distance. However, he noticed that the Undead Evil Child had no shadow under the sunlight. Meanwhile, the Undead Evil Child had cast an illusion on Bloody but it did not expect Bloody to have a more powerful spiritual level than it did, so its illusion did not work. Bloody could control tens of thousands of parasitic hosts at once; its spiritual level was many times more powerful than any creature of the same level. It was immune to many spiritual attacks.
As the attacks did not work on both of them, the battle became a chaotic fight show. There were flaws everywhere as Lin Huang watched, and the fight was getting nowhere. However, Lin Xin could not capture the flurry of movement of the two complete gold-level monsters with her eyes. All she could see was a red and a blue shadow moving in the desert which seemed quite interesting.
Bloody's current form was a giant python, which was its original form. The Undead Evil Child always managed to avoid its attacks. Fortunately, the Undead Evil Child was no good in physical attack, so the attacks that were cast on Bloody were ineffective.
"Why do you keep chasing after it? With your estimation abilities, you should be able to tell where it's going to run. All you'll have to do is to block its way as it escapes and attack again, isn't it?" Lin Huang could see that Bloody was lacking battle experience. He was considering summoning other monsters that did not have the opportunity to battle to train with his other monsters to strengthen their battle ability.
Bloody was inspired by Lin Huang's reminder. Three minutes later, the Undead Evil Child's thigh was caught as it was running away and the parasite was released. Bloody then strangled the entire Undead Evil Child's body like a giant python. It was Lin Huang who had instructed Bloody to do that as he did not want Lin Xin to know about Bloody's parasitic ability and therefore had created an illusion of strangling the Undead Evil Child. Meanwhile, Bloody could extract its memories as it did that.
"Brother, what's that little blue man that Bloody is strangling?" Lin Xin had only learned about the beginner version of the monster encyclopedia, so she could not recognize many of the monsters.
"This is an Undead Evil Child. It's a gold-level undead monster," Lin Huang then told Lin Xin about the story of the Undead Evil Child hypnotizing people and eating their flesh.
"Why do so many monsters love eating human flesh?" Lin Xin asked in all seriousness after listening to the story. Her focus point was very different from the others.
"Perhaps human flesh is tastier than monsters'." Lin Huang could only think of that explanation.
Fortunately, Bloody was done with its business, so the awkward conversation did not last too long. Bloody shrunk its body back to its earlier size and went into Lin Huang's sleeve after it had killed the Undead Evil Child.
"It's done?" Lin Huang contacted Bloody in his mind.
"I have extracted its memory. I'll need some time to study. I hope you don't recall me back into card form just yet, Master," Bloody requested.
"Alright then, stay in my sleeve for now. I'll let you out when we're back in the White Capital," Lin Huang agreed.
"It's done, let's go!" Lin Huang summoned his dimensional relic.
"Where are we going?" Lin Xin asked.
As they stepped into the dimensional relic, they arrived at Fatty's hometown in Nanmu Town. Fatty's home was less than two kilometers from the old town. It was past 1 p.m. Lin Huang brought Lin Xin to a random noodle store for lunch before heading to Fatty's home. It was around 1.40 p.m. when they arrived at Fatty's home.
The man guarding the door noticed that they had just been here earlier, so he informed the housekeeper, and they were soon allowed into the house. The housekeeper greeted them at the door and brought them straight to the second floor, not asking anything this time. The old lady had just woken up from her nap and did not expect Lin Huang to visit. She allowed them in as soon as the housekeeper informed her of their presence.
This time, the two aunts were not there, so it was just the old lady alone. The old lady did not look as well as she did the first time they saw her.
"Xiao Linzi, you must be free today since you're visiting this old lady," the old lady chuckled, hiding her emotions.
Lin Huang's eyes twitched when he heard how the old lady addressed him. The nickname was named after a eunuch in a martial art novel on Earth.
"I'm running errands around the area, so I thought I would drop by to see you," Lin Huang said with a smile.
"What is that? Is it done? Do you need our help?" The old lady was eager.
"It's okay, I came here after I settled my stuff." Lin Huang smiled and shook his head.
"How have you been?" Lin Huang asked.
"Nothing much, just some pain here and there. It's normal because I'm old as long as they don't bother me too much," the old lady said.
"The aunties aren't home?" Lin Huang addressed them like how Fatty would have, and the old lady did not mind him calling the aunts like that.
The old lady was gloomy when she heard the question.
"Don't talk about the two of them."
"What happened?" Lin Huang asked, guessing that it had something to do with the Ke Lai Hotel, which was his purpose of visiting.
"Since you're Hangyi's friend, you must have heard him mention the family hotel?" The old lady hesitated before she started to speak again.
"Yes, I know, Hangyi brought me to Ke Lai Hotel in Baqi City last year. Uncle was at the hotel as well, and he made us some of his signature dishes."
The old lady had tears in her eyes when she heard Lin Huang talking about her son and grandson, but she managed to hold her tears in.
"So, you have been there before. How was it?" The old lady closed her eyes for a while before asking.
"It was great. Uncle's cooking skill is the best of the best among normal people. Some of the Food Hunters aren't even as good as him," Lin Huang positively commented on Fatty's father's cooking skill.
"If he trained himself, he would definitely make a renowned Food Hunter," he added.
The old lady was solemn for a while after hearing the comment.
"Xiao Linzi, are you interested in taking over Ke Lai Hotel?" The old lady asked after she seemed to have already decided on it.
