Chapter 516: The Immaculate Black and the Holy White
Translator: CKtalon Editor: – –
Shi Xiaobai immediately reached out his hand and picked up a large piece of diamond and stuffed it into his mouth. Although Shi Xiaobai had later discovered that the diamond fragments were the medium used by the Level Lords to create an illusion, the Level Lords were now all dead. Furthermore, with his life on the line, so what if they were a hallucination medium? He would even eat shit…Pui! He would rather die than do so!
In short, Shi Xiaobai began to wolf down on the diamonds. They tasted like popcorn and it would have been perfect if there was a cup of iced Coke to match it.
Shi Xiaobai relished the thought and did not feel any depression or despair from being poisoned.
Suddenly, a pitiful bark was heard. It sounded soft and plaintive, making it resemble a kitten’s cry.
Shi Xiaobai turned his head in surprise and noticed the little white dog looking at him with teary eyes as it stared at the diamonds in his hand in a pitiful manner.
The little white dog was a once the Thousand Eye Demon Sovereign, so although it had lost all its memories and had a decrease in its intelligence, its ‘greedy’ nature had not changed at all. Seeing the diamonds that it fondled intimately on a daily basis being eaten, how could it willingly give them up? How could it not feel the pinch?
Shi Xiaobai sighed. He always detested the act of stealing from people, not to mention stealing from a dog?
Although the dog being owned by him meant that the dog’s items were ought to be his, the items were a gift from him. So to ‘tyrannously’ take it for his own did not match his way of the King.
Shi Xiaobai frowned slightly and stopped eating.
The little white dog seemed to sense the dilemma Shi Xiaobai was in. Suddenly, it lifted its paws to wipe its eyes like a human. With a whoosh, it flew to the pile of diamonds and picked up a few pieces and flew back to Shi Xiaobai, handing the diamonds over.
“Woof! Woof! Woof!”
The little white dog called out gently like a kitten. Although its eyes seemed unwilling to part with the diamonds, there was more of a resolve and anticipation in them.
Shi Xiaobai immediately felt his heart warm up as he was touched.
Shi Xiaobai gently stroked the little white dog and said seriously, “This King will definitely return it to you a hundredfold!”
The little white dog nodded excitedly and pushed the diamonds in its paws toward Shi Xiaobai’s mouth, urging him to eat the diamonds quickly.
After Shi Xiaobai took the diamonds, he began wolfing down on them!
In less than a minute, all of the diamonds on the ground had been eaten clean.
Shi Xiaobai pulled up his shirt and was immediately somewhat dumbfounded.
Although he had eaten a huge number of diamonds, the amount of energy required was far from enough. His fair skin had only extended from his abdomen to his chest and waist. However, above his collarbone and below his navel, as well as his limbs, they remained black. Less than a third of the ‘Holy Tree Sin Poison’ had been cleansed!
But where was Shi Xiaobai to find food?
There was no grass or tree bark in the endless snow-white desolate plains he was on. There was also no more food on him that he could eat. He had only repressed the ‘Holy Tree Sin Poison’ for ten minutes using the Massage Technique of God. Now, with about three minutes having passed, there were only a short seven minutes left. Where was he to find more food?
Shi Xiaobai reached another impasse but he did not give up hope. He began pondering with his brows furrowed.
Suddenly, the little white dog barked out once again.
Shi Xiaobai looked up and was immediately left dumbfounded.
He saw the little white dog open its mouth and spit out a luminous pearl that was about the size of its body!
It did not only stop there. After spitting out the pearl, the little white dog prostrated itself and in a vomiting pose, a series of crystalline pearls came out like an endless waterfall!
After the little white dog vomited the luminous pearl and the pile of pearls, it gave them a teary glance before gritting its teeth and grabbed the luminous pearl with its paws and flew towards Shi Xiaobai.
The little white dog placed the luminous pearl in Shi Xiaobai’s hand. Its eyes were teary but they looked resolute. It resembled a child who had fallen but had refused to cry.
Shi Xiaobai was momentarily at a loss for words.
He was surprised that the tiny body stored so much ‘treasures’. From the looks of it, they were the treasured possessions of the Thousand Eye Demon Sovereign. They were probably treasures that the little white dog cherished innately.
With its intelligence, it probably could not understand the situation. But from its point of view, it believed that its master was ‘hungry’ and had wanted to eat its diamonds.
But now, seeing its master frown, even though it could not bear to part with its treasures, the little white dog had resolutely handed the diamonds over. It had even vomited the treasured possessions that it cherished greatly.
It was like a three or four-year-old giving up his beloved toys after seeing his parents vexed!
This was such a lovable and sensible little white dog!
Shi Xiaobai fell silent for a long while before he gave an affirmative response. His brows relaxed as he gave a warm smile. Taking the luminous pearl, he placed it in his mouth.
He did not say thank you nor did he make a promise of returning it a hundredfold. Neither did he reveal a look of reluctance.
He only smiled warmly in a high-spirited manner from the bottom of his heart.
This is This King’s pet!
The Pet of a King!
The little white dog barked in joyful excitement. It was like a child that had received the compliments of his parents.
Shi Xiaobai swallowed the luminous pearl and the pearls on the ground. He did not mind at all that the treasures had been vomited out of the little white dog’s body. In fact, the taste was no different from glutinous rice balls. They were sweet and greasy. A gentle bite filled his mouth with the flavored fillings within the glutinous rice balls.
The little white dog began flying around Shi Xiaobai like an energetic pixie. Seeing Shi Xiaobai about to finish the pearls, it immediately prostrated and vomited again.
This time, it vomited gold that filled the ground!
Shi Xiaobai could not help but laugh and shake his head.
This tiny body actually hid a mountain of gold in it?
If he were to return it a hundredfold, how much was it?
Shi Xiaobai grinned.
If a country’s wealth was insufficient, then all the world’s wealth would be given to it!
As Shi Xiaobai ate, the little white dog vomited. It went from gold to necklaces to weapons to treasured artifacts and various precious treasures. What the little white dog vomited could match the vault of a prominent family clan’s. And all of it ended up in Shi Xiaobai’s stomach, allowing him to use the Power of Taotie to convert it into ‘nutrition’ that strengthened his body and ‘anti-poison’ that cleansed the ‘Holy Tree Sin Poison’!
Shi Xiaobai’s black skin gradually faded away. It went from his collarbone to his neck, to his lips and finally to his nose’s wing. Finally, his entire head was restored to its original color. As for the lower body, it went from below his navel to his lower abdomen and thighs…In the meantime, Shi Xiaobai had pulled his pants and taken a look. Even “little Xiaobai” had turned back to its original color but it felt somewhat weird.
But in short, Shi Xiaobai, who had his body invaded by the ‘Holy Tree Sin Poison’, had nearly experienced a full recovery. Up to that moment, only a tiny portion of his forearm and calves had not been fully restored. He was almost done with his treatment!
However, the little white dog was done vomiting its treasures!
The little white dog barked anxiously as it tried to regurgitate what it had eaten, but nothing came out!
Even the richest vault could be depleted. The ten thousand years the Thousand Eyed Demon Sovereign had used to accumulate its treasures, including treasures it had snatched from trial-takers, had been completely finished by Shi Xiaobai!
The little white dog vomited dryly a few times with eyes brimming with tears.
Shi Xiaobai gave a consoling smile as he stroked the little white dog. He said, “It’s enough. You have already done enough. Leave it to This King to think of a solution next!”
The little white dog looked up at Shi Xiaobai and realized that its owner’s brows were relaxed. His eyes were brilliant and he exuded a refreshing exuberance. Immediately, it calmed down and gave a few fawning barks. It once again circled Shi Xiaobai in happiness.
Shi Xiaobai had smiled warmly, pretending that everything was fine. However, he was smiling bitterly in his heart.
With just a tiny portion of his forearm and calves not healed, it was a tiny bit short of a full recovery. But this tiny bit was a chasm!
He had used the Massage Technique of God to temporarily freeze and abate the ‘Holy Tree Sin Poison’ from triggering. Although most of his body had been cleansed of the poison, the moment the frozen ‘Holy Tree Sin Poison’ in the tiny portion of his forearm and calves triggered again, it would instantly spread through his body, wasting all his efforts!
A drop of poison and a body of poison was qualitatively the same. That was how terrifying the ‘Holy Tree Sin Poison’ was!
Therefore, he needed to cleanse the poison completely to be thoroughly saved!
However, even the little white dog had vomited its entire ‘treasure vault’. With less than two minutes left, how was he to find the food needed to cleanse his forearms and calves?
Shi Xiaobai quickly pondered over the matter. In order to not worry the little white dog, he did not show his worries on his face.
Two clear sword hums suddenly resonated!
Shi Xiaobai lowered his head in surprise and saw a black sword and a white sword appear automatically into his palm. They floated in mid-air and began to emit resonating sword hums.
The two swords had some basic forms of intelligence. They were like newborns and were very intimate with Shi Xiaobai. They had even once been ‘jealous’ of each other because of Shi Xiaobai.
But now, they had suddenly appeared on their own initiative. Why did they do so?
Shi Xiaobai had, in fact, a mysterious tacit understanding with the two swords. Upon hearing their humming, Shi Xiaobai roughly understood what they were trying to express.
Shi Xiaobai suddenly had a drastic change in expression when he listened to them carefully.
“What!? Eat the both of you!?”
Shi Xiaobai’s expression changed. The swords had issued anxious sword hums to express their desire for Shi Xiaobai to eat them!
Shi Xiaobai immediately rejected the thought and said solemnly, “Both of you are This King’s swords. You are This King’s partners, not This King’s food!”
How could Shi Xiaobai eat the swords that had fought alongside him? Even if they were scrap metal, he would absolutely not eat them. Furthermore, the two swords had some nascent intelligence. It was only a matter of time before they gave birth to a sword spirit. They were no different from two newborn babies.
Even if he had to cut his arms and legs off, Shi Xiaobai would not eat them!
Shi Xiaobai drew a deep gasp and forced himself to calm down. He said gently to the two swords, “Don’t worry. It’s only a small problem. This King will resolve it very quickly.”
With the little white dog as a precedent, Shi Xiaobai knew he could not reveal his nervousness and frustrations or they would only end up worrying.
Just like how parents who had worked arduously at work, they would feign normality no matter how exhausted they were when they reached home. It was to prevent their children from worrying.
Shi Xiaobai grinned and said in high spirits, “Believe in This King!”
Shi Xiaobai lifted his hands, intending to keep the black and white swords.
However, at that moment, the black and white swords suddenly issued a clear and resonating sword hum. It sounded like a tune of lofty mountains and flowing water that unfolded at a magnificent scale. The tune affirmed their decision!
Just as Shi Xiaobai cried out, the black sword suddenly slashed at the white sword while the white sword abruptly cleaved at the black sword!
A clang was heard!
The black and white swords shattered simultaneously as the fragments of the sword scattered like black and white snowflakes!
At that moment, it was as though the world only had two colors left—immaculate black and holy white.
