859 You Won’t Go Through Whatever You’re Going Through Now If You Hadn’t Done What You Did
After knowing that the crystal core in a monster's body could rapidly replenish one's power, Tan Lang and the rest became more passionate about fighting.
The next morning, they left the city and began hunting for monsters although it was only seven o'clock in the morning.
Lin Huang then returned to the hotel room after having his breakfast. He took out an ascendance-level monster carcass, digging out the crystal core with a dagger.
The crystal core in the monster body was known as an internal elixir.
The crystal core in Lin Huang's hand was the size of a male adult's thumb and it was colorful.
He could clearly sense various types of energy stored in the crystal core as he held it in his hand. Life Power alone occupied about 50% of it.
Just as he was about to give it a try, from its hidden place up his sleeve, Bloody whispered, "The crystal core looks delicious."
"What?" Lin Huang was stunned and he had a peculiar facial expression on his face.
It was not his first time extracting a crystal core. Bloody could see everything clearly from his sleeve every extraction. It had never mentioned that it felt like eating the crystal core. This was the only time when Bloody seemed to crave the crystal core.
"Is there anything special about this crystal core?" Lin Huang asked.
"I don't know. I simply feel that it has a sweet fragrance and it smells like a very delicious kind of candy." Bloody then slipped out of Lin Huang's sleeve, lingering around the crystal core.
"A candy kind of smell?" Lin Huang smelt it and he frowned. He could not smell anything.
"Let it be. Just eat it." Since Lin Huang could not find out the reason, he did not bother to ask any further and tossed the crystal core to Bloody.
Bloody immediately twisted its tentacles around the crystal core and quickly pitched it into its mouth.
After a short while, it closed its eyes as if it was enjoying it tremendously.
"Was it that good?" Lin Huang thought to himself.
After a couple of moments, Bloody gradually opened its eyes, shifting its gaze towards the monster carcass where its crystal core had been extracted. "I guess I know what's happening."
"Do tell." Lin Huang was keen to know more.
"After eating the crystal core, I've inherited its memory. I even obtained two abilities from the owner of the crystal core," Bloody shared what he received after eating the crystal core. It then continued, "If I'm not mistaken, only the crystal core that's compatible with me will give such a weird craving.
"As for why I had such a weird craving, I suppose the answer lies in my genes where I can sense things that are beneficial to me, just like how most of the creatures are born with the ability to sense danger, but the strength of one's ability to sense it will be different.
"Moreover, I think the crystal core doesn't only work for me. It should work for Bai and the rest too. However, I think the crystal cores that we need will be rather different."
"Didn't you sense anything when you see the monster carcass?" Lin Huang asked again.
"No, I didn't. I only sensed it after the crystal core was extracted. Perhaps, the monster carcass has isolated the effect of the detection ability." Bloody shook its head.
"Alright, I got it." Lin Huang nodded his head.
After summoning Kylie, Lin Huang brought Bloody to Kylie's mini world.
He looked for open space and took out all the monster carcasses that he had collected in the past few days.
The monster carcasses piled up like up a mountain and there were more than 10,000 of them.
However, only about 100 of them that were on ascendance-level could be compared to immortal-levels. The rest were on mortal transformation-level.
Lin Huang then summoned Bai, Lancelot, Killer, the Death Knight, and the Fallen Knight as they were monsters with weapons in their hands.
"I have a task for you. Dissect all the monster carcasses and extract their crystal cores." Lin Huang decided to slack off and summoned his monster pets to do all the work. "After extracting all the crystal cores, I'll need to sort them out, so you're not allowed to eat first. Try to keep the carcasses in their complete form and don't eat them first. I'll need to exchange them for crystal cores."
They were excited the moment they were summoned. However, after discovering the reason why they were being summoned, they suddenly looked bitter.
"Is it suitable to use the human idiom 'break a butterfly on a wheel' here?" Bai turned its head towards Bloody and asked.
"Yes," Bloody answered seriously.
"Every 100 carcasses dissected will be given a day's worth of junk food as a reward." Lin Huang extended his finger.
Lancelot's eyes immediately lit up. "May I look for helpers?"
"Yes, you may." Lin Huang inclined his head.
Without a moment of hesitation, Lancelot summoned the sword slayers and began dissecting.
The rest of them immediately worked on them as well.
Kylie caught a glimpse of Lancelot's sword slayers. She then whistled and the Nephilic Judge army instantly arrived.
"Dissect all the monster carcasses and try not to damage them." After she pointed at the dead bodies, more than 300 of the Nephilic Judges began dissecting the carcasses.
Kylie stood next to Lin Huang, turning her head towards him. "There aren't that many monster carcasses. Do I need to hunt for monsters?"
"No, you don't need to do so for now." Lin Huang shook his head. Seeing Kylie's disappointment, he then explained, "There's something strange about this world. Let's talk about your upgrade after leaving this place."
Kylie nodded her head and did not say anything else.
After leaving Kylie's mini world with Bloody, Lin Huang headed towards the library and began looking for information regarding the internal elixir from the monster's body.
After reading for the whole afternoon at the library, Lin Huang still did not manage to find out about the exact explanation regarding how consuming the monster's internal elixir could result in inheriting its memory. However, there were a few articles that mentioned humans becoming monsters after consuming the monster's internal elixir.
One of the articles was very remarkable.
The main character of the story was a person called Mo Fei. He was very powerful and had killed countless monsters. One day, Mo Fei arrived at a small town. The people of the town were very friendly to him. However, everybody in the town would turn into monsters at night.
With a lot of effort, Mo Fei spent almost the entire night killing all the monsters. As the sun rose, he sat on the green staircase at his hotel with his saber. He then realized that all the monsters he had killed the night before were actually humans. He only realized that he had encountered a monster called an incubus. The monster set him up, causing him to exterminate all the humans in the town.
With guilt and hatred, Mo Fei began hunting for the incubus. It took him decades to hunt for the monster and his hatred grew even stronger. Eventually, he finally found a way to enter the dreamland and managed to find the incubus.
After a brutal fight, he murdered the incubus. Due to his intense dislike for the incubus, he ripped the incubus apart and devoured its internal elixir. He then became an incubus that was even stronger with many negative emotions.
"Is the story telling us that you won't go through whatever you're going through now if you hadn't done what you did?" Lin Huang described how he felt in the first place after reading the story.
