Chapter 331: You’re Not Qualified To Negotiate With Me (2)
Sharing the God of War Catalog was not omnipotent.
“No, Little Senior Sister Lu’s injuries haven’t improved,” Yin Wuyou said worriedly. “Can you save her?”
“As long as they don’t worsen, don’t worry about it.” Zhou Shu thought for a moment and said, “It takes time for the pill to take effect.”
“Grand Minister, concern leads to confusion,” Zhou Shu said. “How about this? If her injuries don’t improve in a few days, I’ll think of another way.”
“Alright then.” Yin Wuyou could only nod.
“Your Highness! Your Highness!”
After they said just two words, Shi Songtao ran over in a hurry.
The busiest person in the camp was definitely the deputy pavilion master of the Huaxia Pavilion, Shi Songtao.
Not only did he have to handle the chores in the camp, but he also had to manage the miners and find time to forge.
From morning to night, he barely had time to rest.
“What happened now?” Zhou Shu said.
There were more people in the camp, and things were starting to get busy. Every time Shi Songtao looked for him, it was definitely nothing good.
“Your Highness, Yao Buqi is up to something!” Shi Songtao whispered.
“Yao Buqi?” Zhou Shu had almost forgotten about the existence of Yao Buqi.
He had been too obedient lately…
“What happened to him? Did he escape?” Zhou Shu didn’t care much. If Yao Buqi had caused trouble in the camp, he would have discovered it long ago.
With his current strength, he had no problem suppressing Yao Buqi.
“He didn’t run away,” Shi Songtao said. “But I suspect he’s sending messages out!”
“Is there any doubt about that?” Zhou Shu couldn’t help laughing. Didn’t Yao Qing and Yao Ji come to help because Yao Buqi asked for help?
He didn’t know how Yao Buqi had delivered the messages, but he must have sent some out. There was no doubt about it.
“No,” Shi Songtao said. “Your Highness, look!”
Shi Songtao reached into his pocket, took something out, and handed it to Zhou Shu.
“Ah!” Yin Wuyou exclaimed. “Shi Songtao, why are you so disgusting?!”
“I—” Shi Songtao felt wronged.
“Deputy Pavilion Master Shi, you’re really a damn genius,” Zhou Shu praised but couldn’t help cursing as well.
“Your Highness, I’m not joking.” Shi Songtao looked even more aggrieved. “Yao Buqi really used this rat to send news!”
“Shi Songtao, demonic beasts are different from wild beasts, okay? They’re two different species! Do you think this rat is also a demonic beast? Or can demonic beasts communicate with rats?” Yin Wuyou said.
“I…” Shi Songtao was stunned by the question. “I don’t know, but I caught this rat from Yao Buqi. When I took it away, Yao Buqi even wanted to fight me over it! Does he think that with his spiritual essence sealed, he can beat me?”
“Grand Minister, you have misunderstood Deputy Pavilion Master Shi.” Zhou Shu laughed loudly. “Deputy Pavilion Master Shi, you’ve done a great job this time!
“I didn’t expect Yao Buqi’s status to be higher than I thought.”
He had gotten it without any effort at all. Yao Buqi actually had a void beast!
Before, Zhou Shu would probably have treated this as an ordinary rat.
After all, there was no aura of a demonic beast on its body, and demonic beasts had never been so small.
But now, he could tell at a glance that this was the void beast he had been thinking about!
Cao Chenyang had said confidently that in the Demon Realm, only great demons with extraordinary statuses were qualified to have a void beast. He didn’t expect that this fellow Yao Buqi also had a void beast!
It seemed like he had also sent messages out through this void beast.
In these mountains, who would care about the movements of a small rat?
Yao Buqi could have written down the messages, stuffed them into the void beast’s stomach, and sent it out.
He probably didn’t expect that someone would be able to recognize the void beast here.
Zhou Shu’s reaction made Yin Wuyou and Shi Songtao feel a little strange.
Did the king like such things?
Yin Wuyou reacted faster and asked, “Zhou Shu, this isn’t a rat?”
“It’s not a rat. It’s a type of demonic beast,” Zhou Shu explained with a smile. “This is a void beast. It’s a very rare demonic beast in the Demon Realm.
“Don’t underestimate it. It may look like it doesn’t have much combat power, but it has other uses.
“Let’s go meet Yao Buqi. I’ll broaden your horizons today.”
Zhou Shu took the lead and headed to where Yao Buqi was imprisoned.
He really didn’t know how to control a living void beast. He would have to ask Yao Buqi about it.
Yin Wuyou and Shi Songtao felt a little strange. Let them broaden their horizons?
They were not inexperienced. Although a rat-like demonic beast was a little strange, how could it broaden their horizons?
Curious, they followed Zhou Shu to where Yao Buqi was imprisoned.
As soon as Yao Buqi saw Zhou Shu and the rat in his hand, he shouted, “I didn’t cause any trouble! I raised that rat to relieve my boredom. Give it back to me.”
“Yao Buqi, you’re a pretty good actor.” Zhou Shu smiled. “Do you think I don’t know about void beasts?”
As soon as he said this, Yao Buqi’s expression changed. He trembled and said, “H-how do you know?”
“I know a lot of things,” Zhou Shu said indifferently. “You have an extraordinary identity to possess a void beast. It seems that your parents are great figures in the Demon Realm.”
“I…” Yao Buqi panicked. Even in the Demon Realm, not everyone knew about void beasts. Why did this human know?
“I don’t have to say anything more, do I? Let the void beast spit out what’s in its stomach,” Zhou Shu said.
Yao Buqi gritted his teeth, and his expression became ugly.
“A void beast can only have one master in its life. No one can make it open its space except me!” Yao Buqi almost growled. “If you kill me, the void beast will die too. Then you will never be able to open its space!”
Yin Wuyou and Shi Songtao were puzzled. What void beast? What space?
“Did I say I was going to kill you?” Zhou Shu said. “If I wanted to kill you, do you think you would still be alive?
“Cut the crap. Open the space. I’ll improve the conditions for you in the future and give you more meat for every meal,” Zhou Shu said in annoyance.
Yao Buqi was stunned. He actually felt flattered. He felt that it was extremely ridiculous.
Never in his life would he have imagined that he would one day feel touched to get more meat.
“I’ll give you what’s inside. Give me back the void beast!” Yao Buqi said. “It can only recognize one master in its life. Even if you take it, it’s useless.”
Yao Buqi’s tone was pleading.
“Is that so?” Zhou Shu smiled without saying anything. “Do you think I care about what’s in the void beast’s stomach?
“You may have an extraordinary background, but I really don’t care that much about what you have.
“I only asked you to open the space in the void beast’s body because I was curious. If you insist on refusing, it’s not like I don’t have any other way.
“If I skin it, its skin can still be of use to me.”
Zhou Shu casually took out a piece of beast skin. His spiritual essence moved slightly, and a three-foot-square space appeared in front of them.
Yao Buqi’s pupils constricted, and he trembled with disbelief.
Yin Wuyou and Shi Songtao also widened their eyes. The scene before them completely exceeded their understanding.
“You see? Who told you dead void beasts are useless? Doesn’t this make them usable?” Zhou Shu’s voice echoed in their ears. “This is even better than living void beasts. It can only recognize one master in its whole life? That’s ridiculous! You’re not qualified to negotiate with me.”
