After a short while, Ling Yi had completed the last part of removing Lin Shurou’s curse.
The nightmare curse that had been wrapped around Lin Shurou’s body was removed entirely, and she had officially returned to normal.
Actually, if Ling Yi wanted to, he could use the “house protection talisman” to protect Lin Shurou from the effects of the “nightmare curse” at home.
However, there was no need for that now.
“Thank you,” Lin Shurou said and bowed to Ling Yi again.
She was wearing a snow-white loose summer nightdress. Under the warm light of the late night, it wasn’t easy to distinguish the boundaries between the night dress and her skin.
She was a snow-white person.
Ling Yi took a wooden chair and sat by the window. He waved his hand and smiled, “No need. You’re too polite,”
The nights in June were already quite hot and stuffy, so it was not comfortable to sit on the sofa.
The observant Lin Shurou quickly noticed that Ling Yi’s room was feeling a little warmer. She remembered that there was no air-conditioning in his room, “Why don’t you sleep on the floor in my room tonight? There’s an air conditioner in my room. ”
Although God’s Path had many extraordinary tools that were convenient and beneficial to the people, most ordinary people still used day-to-day technologies for their daily necessities.
Because the price of these rare-grade items in the modern world is very high, ordinary people rarely purchase them.
For example, the E-grade device “Regional Cooler”.
In God’s Path shop, the price of one was only 80 G, which was equivalent to 4,000 global dollars.
However, since many air-conditioner manufacturers had joined forces with relevant groups and invited various experts for improvements, they had forcibly increased their market price by half.
It had reached around 6,000 global dollars, which caused many people to stop in their tracks.
It wasn’t that most people couldn’t afford it, but that it wasn’t worth it.
“Uh… No need, I’ll just buy an item from the store.” Ling Yi didn’t care about the heat.
All he could think right now were skill fusion, mutating the [Battle Flag], and searching for the detection skill.
These three things were what he had to do later.
“Alright,” Lin Shurou nodded her head lightly, then asked curiously, “By the way, what’s the effect of the barrier that you used to protect our house? Can it still prevent bad people from sneaking in? I just heard from someone in the community that another villain with a bounty of three to four million Global Dollars has escaped into Firefly town. I’m afraid…”
After being protected by this mysterious barrier yesterday, she realized that this wasn’t as “useless” as she had initially thought.
Now she had a more understanding of the situation.
“Another one?” Ling Yi, enjoying the breeze from the window, raised his eyebrows and asked with a strange expression, “When was the last time you heard about it?”
“The last time… Half a month ago, the bounty reached about one million global dollars. Then a week ago, it increased to about eight or nine million global dollars. And just four days ago, the bounty reached about twenty million global dollars…” Lin Shurou tilted her head as she tried to recall.
Zhao Ze, who had barged into his house yesterday, was only a small hooligan. He couldn’t be compared to these people with bounties over their heads.
Ling Yi knew the power of the ‘residence protection talisman’, so he wasn’t nervous. However, Lin Shurou didn’t know that. It was only natural for her to be scared.
And so he then explained the function of the house protection charm to the girl.
“What? Was there such a powerful talisman in God’s Path shop? How come I’ve never heard of it before?” Lin Shurou couldn’t help but be suspicious, “You’re not just exaggerating, are you?”
“Whether it’s an exaggeration or not, you’ll know in the future.” Ling Yi said. Rather than explaining and trying to convince her, it’s better to let her see the effects.
“Then where did you get this?”
“It’s a secret,”
“… Oh.” Seeing that Ling Yi didn’t want to say anything more about the talisman, Lin Shurou stopped asking.
However, she still had her doubts about it.
It’s not that she didn’t believe Ling Yi, but the effects the boy mentioned were too good to be true!
Especially the “invincible defense that even level 100 players could not break”. Who wouldn’t question this effect?
Plus, there was not a single level 100 player in the world yet. How could he dare promise something like that?
The more Lin Shurou thought about it, the more she felt that it was ridiculous and the more she felt that he was exaggerating.
‘But then again, since he’s confident enough to exaggerate to that extent, at least I am sure that the talisman paper is not weak.‘
‘It might not truly block level 100 players, but the talisman should be able to block level 50 players, right?‘
She let out a soft sigh, feeling that it might have been better not to ask. Although the worry in her heart had lessened a little, it was still there.
‘Forget it. It’s better to be protected than not at all. I’ve been able to come here safely without any protection before, so I should be even safer now.‘
Thinking of this, Lin Shurou felt relieved.
At least it was better than before.
The two of them did not stay to talk for long.
A person’s routine was not so easily changed. By the time three AM hits, both of them were already a little sleepy.
The two parties said their goodbyes and went back to their respective rooms.
However, Ling Yi was full of energy when he lay on his bed.
‘… It’s so strange, I was so tired outside, but I’m no longer sleepy once I get in bed….‘
He switched off the bright lamp in the room and turned on the small table lamp on the bedside table.
When the warm yellow light illuminated the small area beside the bed, Ling Yi leaned against the headboard and sighed with relief.
The white light in the middle of the night was a bit piercing, but he preferred this kind of gentle light.
Since she couldn’t sleep, he decided to finish the rest of the day’s work first.
“First, the fusing the two skills…”
He had already decided to merge [Howling Wing] and [Flaming Demon Body] together. Without any more time to waste, he turned to the air in front of him and said softly, “God’s Path, open the skill fusion interface.”
A mysterious and brilliant purple-blue virtual light screen appeared in front of him.
The words ‘skill fusion’ was written at the top of the screen, with two ‘+’ boxes in the middle and a yellow ‘fusion’ button at the bottom.
After learning, retrieving, and trading, the skill fusion was the fourth and last thing players could do to a skill.
According to the players’ exploration over the past 20 years, the specific way to play was as follows: Players can put any two skills into the fusion interface, and one random skill will appear. The lowest star level of the skill is the same as the lowest star level in the material, and the highest star level is the same as the highest star level in the material.
For example, if a 2 Star Skill and a 5 Star Skill were combined, the newly generated skill could vary from 2 to 5 Star Skill.
If two 5 Star Skills were combined, only one 5-star skill would appear.
Because the results were random, players often ridiculed this skill fusion function.
Once there was a player who combined two ice skills and got a fire skill in return; another time, another player combined two movement skills only to receive a healing skill; The fusion of a high star and a low star skill would often result in a low star skill …
This fusion function was not commonly used among most players for these reasons.
Most people only used this function a few times within one to two years after entering God’s Path.
Those who used it often were the major forces who wanted rare skills and had a good skill library.
