A bathing pool…
Fang Shaoli was sitting on a black chair with her legs crossed. A pair of blue, sharp heels were tapping softly on the ground made of volcanic rocks.
The bathing pool was built with volcanic rocks. Heat was coming from the beehive of holes, warming the room.
At the front was a heart-shaped pool. In the past, the pool was normally filled with clean hot water and rose petals, but it was now filled with black unholy water full of bubbles, like it had dissolved lots of corpses. Just the sight of it was utterly disgusting.
Zhao Pinlin was kneeling in front of Fang Shaoli’s short skirt, kissing her heels. His humble act was nothing like his usual tyrannical manner. It felt like he had turned into a completely different person.
Meanwhile, Wang Xuxu was right beside them. She was watching the scene in fear. Zhao Pinlin’s strange act, and the woman acting all superior… it did not look like some kinky fetish, but pure evil. Wang Xuxu felt extremely uncomfortable.
“You’ve kissed the God of Death’s foot. The master has accepted your sincerity. Now, it is time for you to act,” Fang Shaoli smiled. The nobility in her smile was different than the disguise of the waitress she put on every day!
“The master you mentioned, are you referring to the one in the Ancient Capital…” Zhao Pinlin’s eyes flickered with uncontrollable excitement.
If Zhao Pinlin had heard the name a week ago, he would surely have kept a good distance from the place.
However, he now felt like he had embarked on a journey to obtain unlimited power and status, led by the person who was able to stir chaos in the modern world. Why would he worry about fulfilling his own little ambitions?
“Please relay my will to master. I will contribute greatly to the organization,” said Zhao Pinlin.
Wang Xuxu was simply in disbelief as she watched it all happen.
The Black Vatican!
Wang Xuxu finally understood why Zhao Pinlin had turned into a different man in just a few days. He was being influenced by the people of the Black Vatican!
What did the woman in heels do to change a well-behaved student into what he was now? It was like he had been possessed by a demon! His bones were filled with nothing but greed. He had completely forfeited the beliefs and teachings he had received for the past twenty years!
“What…what are you trying to do?” Wang Xuxu backed off in fear when she saw Zhao Pinlin approaching her like a demon.
“You can no longer provide me with any value. You will become the stepping stone for me to achieve my greater ambitions!” Zhao Pinlin declared in a cruel voice.
“Wake up, Zhao Pinlin, do you understand what you are doing? She’s with the Black Vatican, she’s only going to lead you into a bottomless abyss!” Wang Xuxu knew her life was in danger. She forced herself to stay calm and try to convince the man.
“Do you think I’ve lost my mind? To be honest, when I heard about the calamity of the Ancient Capital, my first thought was… how is it possible that a single person was capable enough to bring despair to such a huge nation?…” Zhao Pinlin laughed disdainfully.
Wang Xuxu was stunned. She could not believe she had heard that from Zhao Pinlin.
-Is he serious?
-Is he really revering the evil power instead of feeling regretful and angry when the calamity took place?-
“Zhao Pinlin’s background and his talents only make him a slightly wealthier, mediocre person. However, his wild ambitions and his ability to adapt are rather brilliant. What he lacks is a chance to offer his soul to the real God of Death.
“There is only one god, the God of Death. No one in this world could escape from the God of Death’s claws, including God himself. The Kingdom of Death is the true paradise, the place of eternity. Only those who have contributed greatly on behalf of the God of Death will be given a higher position in the eternal Kingdom of Death. Otherwise, when your temporary life comes to an end, you’ll end up as a slave like the Dark Beast Monster when you arrive in the Kingdom of Death!” Fang Shaoli declared to Wang Xuxu in a firm and proud voice.
Meanwhile, Wang Xuxu was staring silently at the passionate Fang Shaoli.
Fang Shaoli was not too bothered by it. How could a person who was about to be turned into a Dark Beast Monster possibly understand the truth?
“She’s all yours now, Zhao Pinlin. Once you push her into the pool, you will become a Gray Priest. Due to the intimate relationship between us, you’ll directly obey my orders. The other Black Clergy won’t be able to order you around. You will be my most brilliant student,” Fang Shaoli burst out laughing.
Zhao Pinlin nodded. He forcibly dragged Wang Xuxu over to the pool of disgusting, black liquid.
“The stupidest decision you ever made was choosing that useless prick Rong Sheng…that was the greatest humiliation I have ever felt. But don’t you worry, that asshole’s life won’t be any better than yours!” Zhao Pinlin no longer had the slightest pity for her.
Even he had never thought that the trip he organized to win Wang Xuxu’s affection would end up like this. The girl was fine when he first laid his hands on her, but he was soon bored. He did not feel uneasy even when he was about to push her into the pool.
Perhaps it was exactly what Fang Shaoli had mentioned, he had found his real talents!
Wang Xuxu fell into the pond. The corrosive, cursed water immediately corroded her skin and formed a layer of pitch-black substance around her.
“She has to be soaked in it for some time, to get rid of her living breath… I will then teach you how to perform the curse,” said Fang Shaoli.
Zhao Pinlin nodded in anticipation.
He always wanted power, but unfortunately he did not become a Magician. However, he never thought he would have the chance again when he was already in his twenties. It was a blessing from Heaven!
Fang Shaoli was about to teach Zhao Pinlin the curse when she heard a sound coming from her earring. It was actually a communication device with the shape of an earring.
“Don’t disturb me if it isn’t anything important. I’m teaching my student,” Fang Shaoli sounded rather impatient.
“Someone has snuck into the manor. They will be a threat to us!” the voice of a man came from the other end.
“Have you learned who they are?” asked Fang Shaoli with a frown.
“We weren’t able to learn their identities. They are too many visitors at the manor recently!” said the man.
“The Enforcement Union?” asked Fang Shaoli.
“No, we have been watching them all along. Not even a probationary member has entered the island,” replied the person.
“Humph, must be some idiots. Go investigate and give me a list of the suspicious people,” said Fang Shaoli.
