The Dark King – Chapter 429
Fragrant smell of the tea curled in the study room.
Dudian stared at Ivette as he asked questions one by one and listened to her answers. He looked at her heart and blood vessels at the same time. Because of his thermal vision he was able to check her heart beating which helped him to know if she lied.
“I’m not aware of that. Even if there is a thing like that I don’t have the right to now.” Ivette replied in an honest tone.
Dudian checked her heartbeat. He saw that the frequency of the beating was stable so he nodded: “Alright, we are finished. Princess, I’ll get your revenge for you.”
A trace of resentment flashed past her eyes: “I hope you will use the most vicious methods to kill them!”
“No problem.” Dudian agreed.
Ivette bowed her head and asked: “How do you know that I was…humiliated?”
Dudian’s eyes softened as he heard her voice full of shame. He replied: “I believe that any senior level hunter can smell that your body is dirtied. Go take a bath now.”
Ivette’s face turned pale as she subconsciously reached to cover the place below her abdomen. However she realized that the action was indecent so she bit her lips and said: “I will go now.”
Dudian nodded and opened the door to call Kroen.
Kroen quickly ran up the stairs: “Master, anything …”
“Take her to take a bath.” Dudian said.
“Yes.” Kroen turned around and showed Ivette the way with gestures.
Dudian looked at Ivette as she went away. According to her the ancestors of the barbarians and the people in the outer wall originated from inner wall area. Because of war all of them were expelled to outer wall. However the barbarians were expelled from outer wall to radiation zone. The inner wall was built two hundred years ago.
“In addition to Mellon consortium, Huasheng, Green and Scott consortium also intervened and provided help to the barbarians… ”
Dudian narrowed his eyes as he thought about options. The military should also be aware of this. However the situation was too complex. The military couldn’t do much even if the military found evidence regarding their intervention. The problem was that everything was contradictory to the balance of power. Is it that the inner wall was the architect of this war?
Dudian regretted to know that Ivette was only a princess of the barbarians. Although she had an excellent combat talent but according to the barbarians the women were prohibited from participating in war discussions. Her father was the chief of all barbarian tribes and the kind of the barbarians. But the barbarian king had more than 50 children. Ivette was ranked as 27th. There were five more sisters who were younger than her. The youngest was a toddler who just learned to walk.
If she was a man with the same combat skills then she would have known all the secrets…
Two days passed in the blink of an eye.
In the last two days old patriarch had sent parasitic soul worms for Dudian to select. There were 16 of them. However most of them were from ordinary monsters and could only help a human to become an ordinary hunter with tracking abilities. The transformation of the body’s constitution would be weak. The increase in strength wouldn’t be too powerful.
In addition to ordinary soul worms there were four good rare parasitic soul worms. They could be used to nurture better hunters.
The most surprising part was that there was a top grade parasitic soul worm in addition to four rare ones.
The parasitic soul worm was taken from a monster called swallower! The hunter with the magic marks from a swallower would have strong digestive capacity. That person would be able to digest flesh and blood infected with almost any virus. There would be strong immunity to majority of viruses, bacteria and parasites. In addition that person would be able to digest metal, toxic plants, stone and so on.
However to have such a high-level ability the person had to advance to senior hunter level.
In addition to digestion the hunter with the magic marks of a swallower would have a secret attacking ability. There would be strong acids in their stomach. A hollow tube evolve from the stomach to the tip of their tongue for sudden attacks.
“Neuss take this parasitic soul worm.” Dudian gave the container that sealed the gray parasitic soul worm to Neuss: “Focus on exercising a lot. Practice with Sergei and Gwyneth. Your starting point is better than theirs so don’t waste this chance.”
Neuss was shocked: “Young master.. This is a top grade parasitic soul worm… ”
“I have enough for myself.” Dudian laughed.
Kroen’s face turned ugly for a moment but the expression disappeared the next second. He looked at Neuss: “It’s master’s gift. Go on take it.”
Neuss bowed and then reached out: “Master, my life has been yours since you took me out from the prison. I swore the loyalty to you with Scar. No matter what I will follow you in the future. If tell me to die then I will!”
Dudian laughed: “Alright, kill yourself now.”
Neuss was stunned.
“I’m going to throw up if you continue.” Dudian replied.
Neuss saluted and left.
Dudian looked at Kroen: “Which family gifted the soul worm of the swallower?”
Kroen handed him out the roster.
Dudian glanced at it and put it back on table: “Tomorrow is the time for my public lecture. Get ready!”
“Yes, young master.” Kroen glanced at the containers of the rare parasitic soul worms on the table then bowed.
Dudian closed the window and added dry woods into the fireplace. He sat by the fireplace and took off his coat. His skin was white but the upper body was covered with whip marks and scars. They were like spider web which had covered all over his body.
In the middle of these scars at his chest there was the magic mark which was result of deification. It was like a sharp sword in his chest.
Dudian gentle touched it. Then he picked up an ordinary parasitic soul worm and began to absorb its blood. He was already at the bottleneck as an intermediate hunter. Absorption of God’s blessings were useless at this point as God’s blessings enhanced his body but not the magic mark.
Dudian removed parasitic soul worms from containers one after another as he injected their blood into the magic marks in his chest.
One, two, three …
“There is a need for only one parasitic soul worm to become a primary hunter. To break into the intermediate level there is a need to inject blood of parasitic soul worms to enhance the magic marks. IF the appetite of the magic marks is special then two or three parasitic soul worms would be need to upgrade. However to reach senior level from intermediate the number of soul worms needed to enhance the magic marks is doubled.”
