A Spirit-grade Seed was at least two or three times stronger than an ordinary Seed. A Soul-grade Seed was anywhere from four to six times stronger than an ordinary Seed!
Asha’ruiya mentioned that the Lightning Tyrant was capable of amplifying the strength of Lightning Spells by six times. It basically meant that it was one of the strongest Soul-grade Lightning Seeds possible!
Different Soul-grade Seeds had different levels of strength. A Domainless Soul-grade Seed with a multiplier of six would most likely cost around eight hundred million, not to mention that the Lightning Tyrant also had a powerful special effect, the Lightning Tyrant Scars!
It was definitely one of the best Soul-grade Lightning Seeds he could possibly find. He could already feel his heart racing after hearing Asha’ruiya’s description.
Mo Fan was the kind of person that would only seek the best option available if he decided to acquire something. He felt uncomfortable knowing there was a chance that the Soul-grade Lightning Seed he was about to spend so much money on was still weaker than someone else’s!
“How much are you asking for the information?” Mo Fan went into serious mode.
He believed Asha’ruiya had no reason to lie to him, especially after his experience with the Dark Swordmaster. If she was willing to tell him a secret like the Dark Contract, she would not joke about a Soul-grade Seed.
“It costs just as much as an ordinary Soul-grade Seed Lightning Seed,” Asha’ruiya replied.
“Aren’t…aren’t you asking a bit too much? Eight hundred and fifty million for a piece of information, and there’s no guarantee that I can acquire it!” Mo Fan said.
Asha’ruiya shook her head and said, “The information I provide doesn’t only include where its location is. First of all, I can guarantee you that there’s no third person that knows about it. Second, if you are willing to pay eight hundred and fifty million for it, I will also tell you how you can acquire it. It will be as detailed as the walkthrough of a video game, and the rest is up to you.”
“Can you give me a fifty percent discount knowing that I’ve paid for this pizza?” Mo Fan said.
“No discount, since I’m confident that my information is unique and worth the value. On top of that, this pizza is only average,” Asha’ruiya replied, all smiles, like a noble and elegant yet lazy white fox, whose eyes were glittering with a hint of cunning intelligence.
“Don’t be like that, your stingy approach is going to ruin your perfect image of a goddess in my heart,” Mo Fan sighed with a wry smile.
“Ah, I didn’t know you thought of me so highly. If that’s the case, I can give you another offer,” Asha’ruiya acted as if she had finally decided to change her mind.
Mo Fan was very interested in the Lightning Tyrant, hence he was excited as soon as Asha’ruiya said it.
“There’s something I must do, but still haven’t done yet on Mount Tyrant. I need someone capable to lend me a hand. I can help you acquire the Lightning Tyrant, but you must do your best to help me in return,” Asha’ruiya said.
“Not a problem, helping one another is more like something that friends are supposed to do,” Mo Fan smiled.
“Go get your money back from Zhao Youqian and transfer it to this card,” Asha’ruiya smiled and took out a card.
Mo Fan’s expression stiffened, “Why do I still need to transfer you the money? Didn’t you say you were going to help me?”
“The offer is actually more like a bundle. You still have to pay the money for the information, but I’ll help you secure the Lightning Tyrant,” Asha’ruiya said.
“But aren’t I doing a favor for you too?” Mo Fan asked.
“I can ask someone else to do it!” Asha’ruiya grinned like a cunning fox.
“…” Mo Fan felt he was absolutely blind before. Did he really sense a sacred, otherworldly aura from Ye Meng’e during their first encounter?
Mo Fan glanced at the pizza, which had only a few slices left, and was left speechless again.
She ate so many slices, even though the taste was only average. -Why don’t you grow fatter instead?-
“Allow me to think about it,” Mo Fan took a sip of his cocktail, yet he no longer felt relaxed as he had before.
Mo Fan was really interested in the Lightning Tyrant, since it was a lot better than something he could get from an auction. The only problem was, the condition that Asha’ruiya gave him sounded extremely unreliable. He could not give his money away just because of how gorgeous she was. It was the biggest sum of money he had managed to save up over the past twenty years!
However, when he thought about the Dark Swordmaster, he had an urge to believe that Asha’ruiya was not trying to trick him. Besides, if Asha’ruiya really was a scammer, Zhao Youqian would not bother receiving her in person, since the man had mentioned how every minute was worth a hundred million to him…
Asha’ruiya totally disregarded how complicated Mo Fan was feeling for the time being. She slowly took a sip from the iced drink with a low level of alcohol. Her sexy, red lips even uttered a soft moan from the pleasant sensation, especially when Mo Fan heard her breathing intensifying a little. The woman was so alluring that Mo Fan had the urge to pounce on her and give her all his savings.
The woman’s charm was off the charts. She was completely different from Mu Ningxue, whose iciness had already penetrated her bones. She was friendly, yet unapproachable.
As Mo Fan was considering it, his phone started ringing. It was from Zhao Manyan.
“Mo Fan, my brother has checked the list of auctions for the upcoming month, but he couldn’t find even a single Soul-grade Lightning Seed. He did find some for other Elements; are you interested?” Zhao Manyan asked.
“No way; didn’t you say I could find everything I needed here?” Mo Fan protested.
“Who knows, there are even Soul-grade Seeds for Black and White Magic, but there isn’t one for the Lightning Element. Do you want to wait for another month, or look for it somewhere else?” Zhao Manyan asked.
“Forget it, if there isn’t even one here, I bet it’s even harder to find one at other places.”
“You’re right about that. Soul-grade Lightning Seeds have always been rare to find, and if there’s a shortage on the market, its price might even increase further,” Zhao Manyan said.
“Then I guess I’ll be taking my money back first,” Mo Fan said.
“Mmm, I already have it. By the way, did you spot any suspicious person in the long corridor?” Zhao Manyan asked.
“Anyone suspicious? I don’t think so, why?” Mo Fan asked.
“The alarm went off, something might have been stolen, but the guards already checked and didn’t find anything missing. Maybe it was a failed attempt.”
Mo Fan hung up the call and subconsciously glanced at Asha’ruiya, who had her eyes closed.
Mo Fan was quite curious about the incident that Zhao Manyan mentioned. Weren’t he and Asha’ruiya the only people in the corridor? She mentioned that she had something to do. Was she trying to steal something?
Mo Fan quickly shook his head. It was most likely someone else. She had no reason to steal the things being displayed in the corridor, as they only had historical value. It was unlikely that anyone could sell them for a good price in the market.
“Have you decided?” Asha’ruiya opened her eyes. Her long, slightly curled eyelashes glittered. Mo Fan’s heart started racing again.
“Can you guarantee that I can obtain the Lightning Tyrant?” Mo Fan asked.
“I can’t, there’s always a chance that an accident can happen, but I’ll try my best,” Asha’ruiya said.
“When can we go?” Mo Fan asked.
“As soon as you have transferred me the money,” Asha’ruiya said.
“Alright, but I’ll freeze the money first, in case you’re trying to trick me,” Mo Fan stated firmly.
Mount Tyrant was located in Italy. It was named after some emperor of ancient Italy, and was quite a distance away from Venice.
The national team was planning to stay in Venice until the opening ceremony of the World College Tournament. The others were also training hard in Venice, and since there were quite a few auctions going on in Venice, the factions supporting the members had started to burn their money on securing more resources for their candidates.
Mo Fan would have to leave the team for some time. He was thinking of telling Mu Ningxue before he left, but she had gone into seclusion. Mo Fan did not even have the chance to see her.
Mu Ningxue was taking the World College Tournament more seriously than he was, since it was the best opportunity she had to prove her value.
Since Mu Ningxue had returned from Tianshan Mountain, her strength had improved at a crazy pace. In addition to it, Mu Ningxue had surely Awakened her third Element, but Mo Fan had yet to see it. He could not tell if she did not have the time to practice it, or she was keeping it as a trump card.
-She must have stumbled into something nice on Tianshan Mountain- , Mo Fan thought.
The two departed for Mount Tyrant after leaving Venice.
Prior to their departure, Mo Fan asked Lingling to research the place for him. Lingling told him that some old Hunters did mention that the presence of the Lightning Element was abnormal on the mountain, and there were many jobs posted to search for a Lightning Seed on Mount Tyrant. However, even now, no one had found even the slightest trace of a Lightning Seed on the huge mountain.
Mo Fan was now convinced that Asha’ruiya was not lying to him, since many experienced Hunters did believe Mount Tyrant had a powerful Soul-grade Seed!
Mo Fan initially thought Asha’ruiya would bring a few of her subordinates along, but it was only her.
Mo Fan was taken by surprise. The woman had come on this adventure alone. She was basically going on a trip with a man she had only met twice. Did he really look that harmless? Asha’ruiya was such a gorgeous woman, wouldn’t she be afraid that he would do something to her in the wild? Every part of her body was urging him to commit a crime!
“You really have great faith in me,” Mo Fan exclaimed.
“So you’re going to do something to me?” Asha’ruiya inquired.
“Men always have difficulty restraining themselves,” Mo Fan replied.
“It’s fine, incidents of that kind only happen when the man is stronger than the woman,” Asha’ruiya said calmly.
“So you’re implying that I’m weaker than you?” Mo Fan added.
“Exactly,” Asha’ruiya nodded.
Mo Fan was triggered right away!
-What the heck? Is she saying that I am no match for her?-
He did not believe there were many people his age that could take him in a duel. On top of that, Asha’ruiya actually looked younger than him. How confident was she, to even say that he could not take her on?
He could not accept it, it was a matter of dignity!
If a pervert like him actually failed to fulfill his role in a place where there was no help available to his target, wouldn’t it be better for him to die than bear the shame?
