Chapter 172 Culture Fluid

Chapter 172 Culture Fluid
Chapter 172 Culture Fluid

Originally, Chu Yunsheng wanted to try his luck and find a tube inside the tomb that might be able to lead him deep into the swarm. But he did not expect that he would encounter one golden shell straightaway, and it was the one that just came out of its “cocoon”.

There were several pre-conditions to use the monster seal talisman, if he wanted to capture the monster successfully. The first one was, that he had to use it when the monster was at its weakest status. It was the reason why, that he often used it at the time when the monster was dying.

He did not know whether if this one was at its weakest status, but he was finally able to encounter one, there was no way he would give it up without even trying. If he did fail, he would also be able to gain some valuable information as well.

Slowly taking out the monster seal talisman from the storage talisman, he was ready to cast it out.

The talisman had already been modified by him. It would no longer shine the bright light when it was activated.

However, if Yuan Qi fluctuated in inside the tomb way too long, it would also alert the insects as well. So he had to do it as quickly as possible.

Half of the golden shell’s body was still inside the deflated meatball, when the dim light of the monster seal talisman was cast onto it.

As if It knew that it was in a dangerous situation, it instantly started to struggle its huge body very hard, and attempted to fight back.

Although it was different than sealing a dying monster, the talisman still worked. It meant that this golden shell was very weak at the moment. However, comparing to a dying monster, sealing this live one cost him much more Yuan Qi. Within less than three seconds, it almost consumed him two-third of his total Yuan Qi, and it was still rapidly decreasing.

If he could not seal the monster before he was exhausted with his energy, he would have huge trouble. The monster would be free from the talisman’s control and it would alert other insects.

He had absorption talismans, but with Yuan Tian stage two’s limitations, he could not output Yuan Qi and restore Yuan Qi at the same time. He had to rely on the last ⅓ of Yuan Qi and hope that the golden shell would be exhausted soon.

A man and an insect both were struggling and both of them did not want to give up. Other meatballs around them also squirmed from time to time, it made Chu Yunsheng even more nervous.

Time quickly passed. When Chu Yunsheng’s energy was almost empty, the new golden shell finally stopped struggling.

After a quiet whoosh sound, the golden shell was shrunken,  and flew towards the monster seal talisman.

Suddenly, an accident happened!

When the talisman pulled the golden shell out, it also broke the two tubes that were attached to it. One of the tubes burst out a golden coloured liquid, the other tube burst out a red coloured liquid. Some of those liquids were sucked into talisman with the golden shell, but some of them were splattered over Chu Yunsheng’s armour. 

The liquids that were sucked into the monster seal talisman were immediately thrown out of the talisman, and went into the gaps between the armour. Soon, an acute burning sensation was quickly spread all over his body.

Chu Yunsheng was shocked. He instinctively thought that he was poisoned. A sudden panic caused him to quickly turn around and ran into the tube which he used to come in.

Meanwhile, the internal wall of the tomb suddenly started to squirm violently. Then a huge tube flew out from deep inside the tomb and connected the tube which Chu Yunsheng used to come in. Luckily, Chu Yunsheng had already got into the tube and he was on the way out.

“Puff!”

A gush of red slimy liquid burst out from deep inside the tomb, Chu Yunsheng and little tiger were flushed out by the slimy liquid.

As soon as he got out, he heard many red shells in the swarm were screeching while running towards the crater.

‘They must have noticed me!’ He thought.

Chu Yunsheng barely had any Yuan Qi left, so he did not dare to stay any longer. He immediately started to run away with the little tiger.

There were many craters near the riverside they could use to hide. The insects did not chase to the riverside, they only searched the area near the tube. After they did not find anything, they all returned back to the swarm.

Chu Yunsheng also did not dare to run too far, because he was scared that it would increase the speed of the poison spreading across his body. After hiding into a crater that was almost two men’s deep, he quickly took out a talisman of cure poison.

However,  despite the talisman removed the poison out of his body and stopped the burning sensations, he still felt that something was not right. 

Only until he started to restore Yuan Qi, did he notice that his cultivation speed was increased. Although just a few seconds of difference, he still noticed it.

He had been staying at Yuan Tian stage two for quite a while now, any slight Yuan Qi fluctuation differences inside his body would be immediately noticed by him.

‘Is it because of those golden and red coloured slimy liquids?’
 
He remembered that the meatballs had two small tubes attached to them, and the golden shell was inside those meatballs.

‘Are those some kind of culture fluid? Or is it just one of them? Does the insect use it to speed up the golden shell’s growth?’  Although he did not know which one increased his cultivation speed, there were some still on his armour. So he quickly wiped them off from his amour, and stored them in the bottles he took out from the storage talisman.

He planted to study those liquids when he got back to the city, but at the moment, he still needed to find the purple flaming monster.
 
Chu Yunsheng had learned his mistake, from the last time he sealed the golden shell, which was when he was in the southern district. He immediately cut off his Yuan Qi supply to the monster seal talisman after he confirmed that the sealing process was successful.

Otherwise, with the golden shell’s scary Yuan Qi consumption, he would have probably lost his ability to move when he was inside the tomb.
 
Only when he fully restored his Yuan Qi did he dare to resume the connection. Then he summoned the golden shell and started to prepare a hole in its back.
 
When Chu Yunsheng once again returned to the slimy ground, he clearly felt that the influence of “Min” on the insect he controlled was much weaker now.

He controlled the golden shell and carefully moved around inside the swarm. With the little tiger’s detection ability, they finally found a red-purple flaming monster near a tomb.

Unlike the busy red shelled insects, the red-purple flaming monster just stayed at one place, not moving. Only its two antennas were moving in the air from time to time. Not a single insect dared to approach it. All the insects in the swarm were moving around it.

Chu Yunsheng also saw a worm fell on top of its antennas from the top of the tomb accidentally. The worm was instantly burned into ashes. 

It was like a king, no insect was allowed to touch its territory. The areas around it was a “no-insect” zone.

Chu Yunsheng took a deep breath, and slowly controlled the golden shell to approach it. Then all of sudden, he ordered the golden shell to spit fire at the red-purple flaming monster.

It was a provocation! A deliberate provocation!

And the red-purple flaming monster would not allow such a thing exist in the swarm.

It would not allow a golden shell to offend its dignity.

However, before it reacted, Chu Yunsheng already ordered the golden shell to dig into the ground and dig toward the riverside.

Chu Yunsheng was worried that the purple flaming monster would not be able to find him, so he ordered the golden shell to dig out of the ground from time to time.

The red-purple flaming monster was enraged by this golden shell’s behaviour. It instantly charged out and tried to catch the golden shell. But then the golden shell dug into the ground once again.

It was like a Whac-A-Mole game. The golden shell was a mole and the red-purple flaming monster was the one trying to whack it.

However, what the red-purple flaming monster did not know was that it was slowly being led into a death trap.
