I Really Am Not The Lord of Demon - Chapter 85
As a web novelist who had encountered failure all year round, Ling Pingan cherished every reader.
That was because they were the people he depends upon for his livelihood.
Similarly, as a bookstore owner who had a mild business, he valued every customer.
Therefore, he had already prepared countless drafts.
He had already prepared personal custom services for all kinds of customers.
To put it simply, he spoke based on the customer’s personality and interest!
Everything he did was for the customers to be satisfied, and in the end, he took money out of their pockets!
Therefore, when he saw this customer was dressed and styled according to ancient traditions, Ling Pingan immediately used the etiquette he had learned when he was a child. He cupped his hands and bowed. “Welcome to my humble store, dear customer!”
Then, he cupped his hands and made an inviting gesture.
… … ..
Liu Zhi looked at the figure in front of him.
In his head made of fog, the fire in his eyes was burning hot.
It seemed to say: another new sacrifice!
Liu Zhi gulped and looked behind him.
There seemed to be a door made of some colorless glass.
When the ancestral dragon was around, the government had produced a large number of this type of glass door.
It was usually a by-product produced by the terracotta army.
Even with the disappearance of the ancestral dragon, a large number of the government’s craftmanship was losing these days.
The technology of making such glasses was still passed down. Outside Chang ‘an, several workshops specialized in making this kind of glass and selling it to the nobles and wealthy merchants in the city.
However, the furnishings behind the door made Liu Zhi tremble with fear.
In the corner of a wooden counter, a kitten was lying on its stomach.
The psionic power wrapped around its body fully demonstrated its strength.
Liu Zhi compared and found that even the three Kirins worshipped in the temple of the Kingdom of Xinghan were not as powerful as the psionic power in this kitten.
Beside the kitten that laid on its tummy, there was something unknown made by the Mo family.
By the side of that thing, the sheep-headed human-faced Taotie opened its eyes.
The shadows of the monsters reflected on the ground.
In the distance, an unimaginable terrifying abyss stood on the other side.
A thick liquid was slowly flowing at its edges.
Pairs of evil eyes, which were so terrifying to Liu Chi, opened and closed one after another.
“Please!” The monster in front of him extended his hand and made an invitation.
His hand looked very thin, and the skin on his arm was so white that it was even whiter than the skin of the concubines in the Royal Palace!
Liu Zhi took a deep breath and nodded without any other choice. Then, he gathered his courage and asked the monster, “Sir, do you sell books here?” He raised his head and looked at the plaque which was written in simplified writing or deliberately written in such a manner.
He saw countless eyes staring straight at him from the plaque as if they were very dissatisfied with his question.
“Yes!” The monster said softly, “I sell books here!”
“I sell all kinds of books!”
“As long as the customer wants it, I have it here!”
“If it doesn’t work, the store will still accept a booking service!”
As he said that, he led Liu Zhi into his store.
Liu Zhi did not dare enter.
Because, he could feel that something had slipped into the depths of the fog from the plaque.
Hence, he knew that he could not submit to his pressure after first turning down his request.
If that were the case, the master would be angry.
If the master was angry, how could the servants dare to slack off?
When had his aunt’s servants not killed dozens of ignorant people?
As soon as he entered the shop, Liu Zhi felt the layers of pressure coming from all directions.
The blood of the Black Dragon in his body became extremely quiet in front of these pressures.
And there was only one possibility for this situation.
That was, the black dragon bloodline had encountered something far powerful than him.
In other words, in this terrifying bookstore, countless monsters were more terrifying than his adult bloodline.
The monster was strolling in the bookstore. He brought Liu Zhi to a place that seemed to be a place for guests. Then, he picked up a cup made of an unknown material and placed a few tea leaves in it as he walked to a machine that seemed to be a creation of the Mo family, pressing a button, causing hot water to flow out.
Then, he took the cup of tea to Liu Zhi and handed it over. “guest, please drink the tea!”
Liu Zhi took the tea in a daze.
The golden tea leaves floated in the cup. The dense spirit aura rose like an immortal mist.
Just by smelling it, Liu Zhi knew the value of this cup of tea!
Legend had it that the ancestral dragon once gathered the seven most powerful alchemists and the three legendary elites with the most powerful yin-yang to gather spiritual herbs and divine herbs to refine a furnace of immortal pills.
When mortals consume it, they would immediately be reborn and possess the potential to cultivate.
When cultivators consume it, it would also have the miraculous effect of increasing their cultivation and prolonging their lives!
However, the cup of tea in his hand probably already had 60% of the effect of the cauldron of immortal pills, that the ancestral dragon had refined with the power of the world back then!
That shocked Liu Zhi and made him extremely nervous.
He hid in this dense fog in order to escape.
The owner of the bookstore, the monster in the fog, not only didn’t blame him for stepping in rashly. Instead, he served him a cup of such a magical tea.
What did he want?
Liu Zhi remembered that his mother had told him when he was young that there was a price to pay for anything.
So, in order to make him the crown prince, he took the initiative to a joint family with his father’s sister.
He made his elder cousin, who was six or seven years older than him, his crown prince consort.
At that time, he was only four years old.
But he was smart enough to say that if he could take elder cousin, Jiao as his wife, he would mount a houseful of gold for her.
Look, even he, the Prince of the Kingdom of Xinghan, the most favored child of his father.
Had to pay such a price to become the crown prince.
Now, the fog had protected him. The monster let him in and gave him a cup of divine tea.
What did he want?
To sell books to him?
It was not that simple!
However, Liu Zhi did not dare to ask directly. So, he thought for a moment and said, “can you let me see your collection of books?”
The monster listened, and laughter came from the depths of the fog. He was still calm and relaxed. “Dear customer, please wait a moment…”
As he said that, he turned around and walked toward the silent Abyss.
His footsteps stepped on the floor.
Liu Zhi could feel that all the monsters in the bookstore were avoiding him, but they were also guarding it.
Just like the panda-men guards, who swore to protect him in the Sixian Garden.
“So…” Liu Zhi thought, “I have come to… the lair of a terrifying diablo?”
The Kingdom of Xinghan had done research and knowledge on the diablos in the Chaos.
Most of these researches and knowledge came from the various materials excavated from the ruins of the Immortal Qin Empire.
In those materials, there was a common consensus among the wise men of the Immortal Qin Empire: The Diablo of Chaos were monsters born from the projection of human spirits and desires in the void.
Therefore, Slaanesh, Tzeentch, Khorne, and Nurgle.
They corresponded respectively to desire, conspiracy, hatred, and disease.
What was he corresponded to?
Liu Zhi did not know but felt chills in his spine!
