Gourmet of Another World - Chapter 1611
‘Snake meat? Why don’t you say it’s the meat of an ancient divine dragon?’
Count Dracula and the Great Wizard both did not know whether to cry or laugh. They wondered since when did the Hua people become so good at lying. Many people said that they were honest, but now it seemed that was all nonsense.
Who was Yamata no Orochi? He was an SS-class spirit beast, the mythical monster of Sakura Island who possessed powerful abilities that could destroy heaven and earth. It would have been difficult for either of them to kill him, let alone take a piece of his flesh.
Such mythical monsters valued their bodies to the extreme, so how could he easily give away a piece of his flesh?
However, as the aroma that filled the air continued to burrow into their nostrils, Dracula and the Great Wizard began to feel a little hungry. Good food still tempted them.
The Great Wizard, in particular, was very captivated. Although he was very old, his only hobby was eating, and he had tasted everything he could eat on the planet. As an elderly wizard, only through eating could he feel pleasure and that his life was still going on.
In the distance, the chefs who had been abducted by the vampires were still cooking. They needed to do their best to make the most delicious dishes so that they would be chosen and their lives could be saved.
But the fragrance in the air made their hands shake a little, and they could hardly hold their kitchen knives firmly. They kept sniffing at the smell, immersing in the shock it had brought them. They wondered what kind of dish was that and why anyone in the world could cook a dish that smelled so good.
“My friend from Hua… I am Count Dracula. May I taste this delicacy of yours?”
Both the vampires and the wizard had expressed their desire to taste the snake soup. The main reason was that it was just too fragrant.
Bu Fang slurped and swallowed another mouthful of snake soup. The steaming broth flowed into his belly, making him feel a warm stream swimming through his body. He glanced at them, slightly twitched the corner of his mouth, and said, “This is a soup made from the meat of Yamata no Orochi. Do you really dare to eat it?”
Dracula and the Great Wizard rolled their eyes at the same time.
“You sounded as if it was true…”
How could a creature like Yamata no Orochi possibly die? As long as the spiritual energy sealing point was not fully opened and the evolution of the living beings had not reached its peak, the SS-class spirit beast was still considered an existence standing at the peak of the Earth. So, how could he be killed so easily?
They thought Bu Fang was lying to them.
Suddenly, Dracula and the Great Wizard froze. They saw that the array in front of Bu Fang began to rotate, and the bowl of snake soup he placed on it gradually disappeared as if it was taken away for tasting.
After a short time, the array gave its response. With a rumble, it rotated faster and faster, constantly discharging energy. At the same time, a thin film that enveloped it began to slowly melt.
At this moment, the bodies and minds of Dracula and the Great Wizard became tense, their eyes fixed on the thin film that was gradually melting. They knew that behind the array were the treasures in this spiritual energy sealing point.
How could there be no treasures in a sealing point where a quarter of Earth’s spiritual energy gathered? This was the common understanding of all the cultivators on Earth. They did not believe that so much energy would not produce any treasures after countless years of brewing!
While the two top superhumans could not take their eyes off the array, Bu Fang seemed very calm. He was still enjoying his snake soup. He had to admit that a slightly sticky delicacy like snake soup was very much to his liking.
As the rumbling sound continued to echo out, the sea began to shake. The tremor spread, causing the water to churn and rise in waves.
Outside the hazy fog, the Jewel was bobbing up and down, pushed by the waves rushing out from the spiritual energy sealing point. The sudden change made Chief Luo, the monk, and the others on the cruise ship suck in their breaths.
“It’s starting! The spiritual energy sealing point is about to be opened!”
Chief Luo and the monk exchanged a look. They were shocked and felt a little excited at the same time. All of a sudden, they heard a dull knocking sound. It made their hearts skip a beat. Hastily, they looked down to the sea.
Beneath the giant cruise ship, there seemed to be an invisible ring of energy spreading in all directions. Then, they saw a huge black shape slowly rising from the bottom of the sea, and soon it was even larger than the Jewel. There was a monster under the sea! The monk and the others were all terrified.
Meanwhile, a small boat approached from afar at a great speed. An old man stood on it and kept thrusting a bamboo pole into the water, making the boat seemingly fly. As it drew nearer, the old man wearing a straw raincoat and a hat jumped up from the boat, walked a few steps in the air, and landed on the cruise ship.
Just when the old man arrived, a sword light cut through the clouds in the sky and flew into the spiritual energy sealing point with monstrous killing intent. The superhumans on the deck felt a shock of cold run through them, and they shivered.
“Oh? Isn’t that the God of Sakura Island, Susanoo no Mikoto?” muttered the old man with a bamboo hat.
“Patriarch!” At the sight of the old man, Yu Ge let out a startled cry and fell to his knees. The plainly dressed old man was none other than the Patriarch of Penglai, a true Earth Immortal! “Why are you here, Patriarch?”
Yu Ge was excited. The patriarch was his idol. Now that he was able to meet his idol, how could he not be excited? Although Bu Fang was also very fearsome, in Yu Ge’s eyes, only the Patriarch of Penglai was his idol.
“How could I not come when the sealing point that occupies a quarter of the Earth’s spiritual energy is about to open? Besides, Yamata no Orochi from that tiny remote island of Sakura had broken the rules, so I don’t have to follow them anymore…”
The old man chuckled and then gently stroked Yu Ge’s head.
“It’s dangerous here. You guys should leave… Many Gods and Immortals from different places will come soon. With your strength, you will not be able to withstand the shock waves from the battle,” the old man said.
That gave the monk and Yu Ge pause, and they quickly nodded. Chief Luo turned his head and looked at the sealing point. Although he was a little reluctant to leave here, he knew that in front of the real almighty experts of Earth, he was still too weak.
“Don’t worry. As long as I am here, this spiritual energy sealing point will belong to Hua.”
With a smile on his face, Patriarch Penglai floated up and tapped his toe on Jewel’s bow. With a rumbling sound, the whole cruise ship sped away, cutting through waves and sailing toward the distance.
The next moment, the old man wearing a straw raincoat and a bamboo hat stepped on a white cloud and flew toward the spiritual energy sealing point that was enveloped in a hazy fog.
“An Immortal! That’s a real Immortal!”
“Heavens! So there really are Immortals in the world! I’ve finally seen one!”
“Have you lost your memory? Wasn’t the young man who killed the giant snake yesterday also an Immortal?”
On the Jewel, countless people were exclaiming. After seeing what seemed like a fairy tale, everyone was flushed with excitement.
The cruise ship kept sailing backward, away from the sealing point. When she finally came to a stop, she was already very far away from where she was. However, Yu Ge, the monk, and the others had no plans to leave. They decided to stay there and wait.
The sealing point, which occupied a quarter of the Earth’s spiritual energy, was about to open. If they could witness this rare miracle, it would be a blessing!
Dracula’s eyes turned scarlet, and sharp teeth grew out of his mouth. He looked very excited. ‘It has appeared! The treasure in the spiritual energy sealing point has finally appeared!’ he cried in his heart.
Holding the magic wand made of a dried branch, the Great Wizard’s cheeks were red from excitement.
Finally, the film disappeared completely, revealing what was inside the array. The two top superhumans watched with wide eyes as Bu Fang continued to drink the snake soup.
Something white appeared in front of them. When they looked at it more closely, they saw that it was a huge egg with the height of two adults!
“An egg? Why is it an egg?”
Dracula and the Great Wizard were struck dumb. Was this the legendary dragon egg? They studied it carefully, then their pupils constricted at the same time. There was a suit of clothes floating behind the huge egg!
Their eyes did not deceive them. It was a suit of clothes. It was red and white, and its fluttering sleeves made it look like a phoenix that was spreading its wings, which was emanating an unparalleled charm and powerful spiritual energy!
“The treasure!” Dracula roared. He knew that the clothes that appeared in this spiritual energy sealing point could not be just an ordinary outfit. It must be a treasure, perhaps even a legendary artifact!
The vampire was very excited. This time, he ignored Bu Fang and went straight to the suit of clothes. He must snatch it before anyone else did.
When he saw the clothes, Bu Fang stopped eating the snake soup, and an astonished look came over his face. ‘Isn’t that… the Vermilion Robe?’ The corner of his mouth twitched.
With a thought, his consciousness went into his spirit sea, and then he found that the Vermilion Robe there had disappeared!
The Vermilion Robe floated and fluttered behind the giant egg, glowing with a strange light. Spiritual energy kept rushing into it, got filtered, and then flowed back out, only to rush back into it again, creating a perfect cycle.
The appearance of the Vermilion Robe made Bu Fang very excited. There was no doubt that he was getting closer to waking Mulberry the Vermilion Bird!
Suddenly, Dracula let out a shrill cry. Invisible sonic waves burst out of his mouth, causing the nearby water to tumble fiercely. The next moment, he transformed into a huge bat and flew toward the robe at great speed. As for the giant egg, he completely ignored it. In his eyes, the treasure was much more important than the egg.
The Great Wizard narrowed his eyes slightly, shook the wand in his hand, and whispered some incantation. A humming sound rang out as a bolt of lightning emerged on the tip of the wand before shooting toward Dracula, who was not far away.
Struck by the lightning bolt, Dracula transformed back to his human form and staggered a few steps back. “Damn you, old man! You’re courting death!”
He roared furiously, opened his mouth, and showed his sharp teeth that seemed to glow. Then, he raised his hand and gave it a swift wave. At the gesture, countless bats immediately flew toward the Great Wizard.
The Great Wizard’s magic wand lit up once again, conjuring numerous huge fireballs before him. Like a volley of falling meteorites, these fireballs sped toward the cloud of bats and collided with them!
Screaming and hissing, countless bats dissolved into black smoke and dissipated.
Count Dracula’s pupils constricted, and his hair seemed to stand up. He raised a hand. Blood began to flow out of his palm and soon turned into a huge pool of blood that spun rapidly in midair. The bloody whirlpool then descended toward the Great Wizard to envelop him as well as Bu Fang.
Bu Fang drank the snake soup while glancing curiously at the pool of blood around him. It seemed to him that the abilities of the superhumans on Earth were very strange. He already found out that the wizard could control and fight with the elements, while the vampire’s strength came from the strange power in his blood.
They did not share the same origin, but their fighting prowess was extraordinary.
Bu Fang suddenly felt a little curious as to how did Earth give birth to so many peculiar cultivation methods? All these methods would eventually converge on the only path that focused on studying cosmic energy, but it was quite amazing that a single planet could give birth to a variety of cultivation techniques.
‘Maybe this is one of Earth’s secrets,’ he thought to himself.
The pool of blood had trapped the Great Wizard, while Dracula was approaching the Vermilion Robe at great speed.
Bu Fang finished the last mouthful of snake soup, then twitched the corner of his mouth. Now that he had eaten, it was time to do some exercise. He was worried that he had no clothes to wear, and now the Vermilion Robe had appeared. Also, he had wanted to fight a vampire.
“It’s a pity that a vampire cannot be used as a food ingredient like Yamata no Orochi,” he curled his lips and muttered.
The Great Wizard, who was inside the pool of blood with him, widened his eyes instantly and gave Bu Fang a strange glance. ‘Dracula is much stronger than Yamata no Orochi, so he will not be so easily defeated… And… Did this young man think of eating a vampire?!’
Bu Fang nodded at the astonished old wizard. He was about to make a move when a sharp sword energy cut through the pool of blood and sped toward him, trying to kill him on the spot!
“How dare you kill my Yamata no Orochi! You will pay for your crime with your life!” a cold voice rang out, then a sword descended from the sky.
Bu Fang frowned.
The Great Wizard’s expression changed. He was shocked by the sword energy first, then he seemed to think of something unbelievable, and he turned to look at Bu Fang.
‘Could it be that the meat in that thick soup just now is… really Yamata no Orochi?!’
