Chapter 388: The Storm Rises
There was no need to worry even if the enemy took the Ethereal Jellyfish’s tentacles. Οne needed to take out a drop of blood in advance and let the Ethereal Jellyfish devour it ιn order to use its tentacles to teleport once between nodes.
The blood that it devoured would be memorized in its gastric pouch. Only those whose blood was memorized could activate the tentacles to teleport between nodes.
Lin Yuan cut a tentacle and observed it before he found out that the Ethereal Jellyfish’s tentacles would grow out two centimeters in one hour. Its tentacles were 30 centimeters long, so Lin Yuan deduced it would take about 15 hours for one tentacle to grow.
Then he cut off all the Ethereal Jellyfish’s tentacles, and Lin Yuan now had 30 tentacles in his hands. He would have to take these tentacles to the location where he wanted to set up a spatial node.
The Ethereal Jellyfish’s ability seemed powerful, but it also had its own drawbacks. If the Ethereal Jellyfish wanted to teleport, the spatial node would have to be set up in advance, and the range of the spatial node couldn’t go beyond the range that the Ethereal Jellyfish could cover with its strength.
Given the Silver I/Legend Ethereal Jellyfish’s strength, it could only cover a small half of the Royal Capital. At present, such a distance was enough for Lin Yuan.
As for long-distance teleportation, Lin Yuan could set up a space tunnel, and the distance would be determined by the number of the Ethereal Jellyfish’s tentacles that Lin Yuan used. The more tentacles he used, the further the space tunnel could be set up.
Therefore, in order not to waste the Ethereal Jellyfish’s teleportation resources, Lin Yuan would have to cut the Ethereal Jellyfish’s newly grown tentacles periodically.
If it wasn’t for the fact that Lin Yuan could feel how the tentacles were like hair for humans, where there would be no feelings after it was cut, he really wouldn’t want to get his hands on its tentacles.
When Lin Yuan exited the Spirit Lock spatial zone, he noticed it was already late at night. Lin Yuan happened to feel very tired, so he got under his covers, ready to have a good sleep, but the late night in the Royal Capital was not quiet.
Even if black clouds covered the stars and moon in the dark night of the Royal Capital, they were still illuminated by the lights, full of prosperity. The early winter season had passed and had turned into a real cold winter.
Although the weather in the Royal Capital was not cold in the true north, the cold wind could easily blow through the spirit qi professionals’ spirit qi clothes.
Random snowflakes slowly spilled down from the dark clouds in the sky without changing the lively atmosphere.
It was almost the Lunar New Year, so many people were out at night. They gathered in some bars and restaurants, watching the broadcast of the Guild Alliance’s S Tournament.
In a very exquisite and stylish single villa in the Royal Capital’s main city, a young man around 29 years old was sitting on a black musk deer leather sofa, with a three-meter-long black leopard lying next to his feet.
The leopard seemed to be a little sleepy at this moment and swept its tail, with blood at the corner of its mouth. Clearly, it had eaten not long ago.
The youth was holding a crystal wine glass, but he squeezed it so hard that it seemed it was going to explode at any time.
An old man of nearly 80 years old was standing behind the youth. He hunched over, and his waist and legs almost formed a right angle. The old man had a walking stick, trembling as if a gust of wind could blow him down.
At that moment, this youth’s eyes were gloomy as he looked without blinking at the two majestic-looking middle-aged men standing in front of him.
These two middle-aged men stood there, with beads of sweat on their foreheads, and their eyes were full of caution as well as the fear of this youth.
The youth said coldly, “Tell me, you two. How long has it been? The Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce has not been taken down! Hmm?”
One of the slightly younger middle-aged men hurriedly answered, “Young Master Zheng, the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce couldn’t withstand our pressure and has moved from Indigo Azure City to the Royal Capital.
“It’ll withdraw and abandon all of its assets in Indigo Azure City. It has already lost its foundation.”
The gloomy youth’s tone suddenly changed.
“So, according to you guys, you are still going to take credit for it, right?”
The slightly younger middle-aged man’s expression was obviously relieved upon hearing the words.
He did not see the older partner standing beside him, whose expression had suddenly become uneasy, as he said, “Young Master Zheng, we do not dare to take credit for it. However, the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce’s online resources are simply too complicated. We still need some time to target them.”
The gloomy young man was furious and laughed before he fiercely hit the musk deer leather sofa’s armrest, creating a loud bang.
The slightly younger middle-aged man who had spoken just now was so scared that he fell on his knees.
The gloomy youth bellowed, “Are you a pig? A chamber of commerce’s online resources target the various stores on Star Web.
“Who knows how many stores on Star Web the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce has signed contracts with to buy goods!
“Only a pig would think of targeting the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce’s online resources.”
The middle-aged man kneeling on the ground really didn’t know what to say, so he blurted out after a long while, “I’m a pig.”
The gloomy youth almost didn’t catch his breath and was so angry that he crushed the wine glass in his hand. He threw the base of the glass on the forehead of the middle-aged man kneeling on the ground, creating a bloodstain.
Then he looked at another middle-aged man and said coldly, “My Zheng family supported you brothers. Is that how you two do things?
“Previously, when you made a move on the Iron Wall Chamber of Commerce controlled by your own father, you weren’t as soft-hearted as now.
“Hehe! Top in the seizure of power? Is it harder to get something done than to eat shit?”
The older middle-aged man immediately knelt on the ground and replied in fear, “We brothers are where we are now thanks to your support for so many years. We’ll do whatever you tell us to.”
The gloomy youth kicked the sleepy black leopard that was beside him. It roared due to the kick and revealed its sharp teeth.
After it saw the gloomy youth had kicked it, the black leopard continued to lie on the ground without making a sound.
The gloomy youth looked at the two middle-aged men kneeling before him and said, “You are all inferior to this stupid leopard. Don’t you have any teeth?
“I thought you all knew when you seized your father’s Iron Wall Chamber of Commerce that those who are bitten by sharp teeth are destined never to stand in the way again.”
