Transmigrated into the Cannon Fodder’s Daughter - Chapter 50.1
When Li Xiao searched the cave, she discovered that most of Zeng Lunian’s belongings hadn’t survived the barrage of lightning and fireballs. Most of them were eaten by the flames, but the cave still held many of his belongings.
Li Xiao was about to turn around when she heard the Sparrow Spirit and Xiao Lu exclaim in unison, “Xiao Xiao, why are there scales on his body?”
When Li Xiao heard them, she immediately looked over and saw a part of Zeng Lunian’s arm was covered in scales and reflecting the sun’s dazzling light.
Xiao Lu quickly recognized it and cried, “It’s like the scales of a dragon!”
Zeng Lunian was still in his human form, but he had scales on his arms and a pair of horns on his head.
Li Xiao pondered for a moment before concluding, “So, it seems his ancestors had some dragon blood, but the lineage should be very weak. If not, Zeng Lunian would’ve used his unique dragon power to fight me.”
She whipped out her cell phone and snapped several pictures of his corpse.
Xiao Lu’s eyes sparkled as she looked at the scales. “The scales are better looking than mine. They’re so bright!” She liked shiny things. And it was a dragon! She didn’t know how many years she would have to cultivate to become a dragon.
Li Xiao waved her hand, “Since you like it, you can peel it off and keep it.” Although you were supposed to respect the dead, she couldn’t harbor any respect for someone like Zeng Lunian.
Squatting down, Xiao Lu peeled off his scales to prepare to make a beautiful makeup for herself.
Walking around the cave, Li Xiao searched for any remnants Zeng Lunian left behind. The demon banner had been destroyed by the thunderbolt and burned to ashes, so it couldn’t be used at all. Even if it could, Li Xiao wouldn’t use it. Zeng Lunian had several other sinister magic tools with him beside the Great Demon Banner.
The palm-sized Mirror of Ecstasy was capable of confusing the mind. There were also poisonous needles that could harm souls, and scarecrows capable of casting spells. Zeng Lunian had quite a few things in his possession. After years of collecting, he had collected some good things. But he was so unlucky he didn’t even have time to use his weapon and died a miserable death.
She also found two pitch-black orbs in a box. She could see the twisted and painful figures of various humans…
There were ghosts trapped inside after being killed by Zeng Lunian.
Li Xiao promptly released them. Upon release, they rushed toward Zeng Lunian’s corpse in a mad frenzy. They bit at his body angrily, harboring deep hatred.
Unable to look at the grotesque scene of flesh and blood, Li Xiao averted her eyes and continued to search. The victims had enough reason to want to take revenge on Zeng Lunian, and Li Xiao was more interested in the books he left behind than the artifacts.
“They’re in the rat hole. His books were hidden in the rat hole,” a little girl, who was no older than six-years-old, said to Li Xiao. She was one of the ghosts trapped in the orbs and she looked more tranquil than the other ghosts consumed by hate.
Subconsciously, Li Xiao reached out to ruffle the girl’s hair. But she stopped midway upon remembering her hand would simply pass through her body.
“Sparrow Spirit, take the things in the rat hole out,” Li Xiao commanded.
The Sparrow Spirit left, and a few minutes later, she came out with some books in her mouth. She put the books down and spat, complaining, “It smells like blood.”
The first book had ‘Hua Long’ written on the cover; it was Zeng Lixing’s handwriting. Li Xiao raised her eyebrows. The first half of the book was about how to cultivate a legendary dragon, and the second half was about how to stimulate the demon power in the body.
To stimulate demon power, one needed to collect strong emotions such as fear and resentment. One would combine those emotions with killing energy, and then cultivate for 9,981 days to stimulate the power under extreme conditions.
Li Xiao’s expression sank. She understood why Zeng Lunian had killed so many people. In his eyes, everyone’s life, except Zhan Jiayin’s, was nothing more than a number.
The second book was written about some cultivation methods. When she opened the book, the scent of blood wafted out. When she read the contents, Li Xiao was so disgusted by some of the spells she burned the book!
If she left the book, more people would be harmed.
The third book was Zeng Lunian’s diary.
