I Really Am Not The Lord of Demon - Chapter 129
Chapter 129 – Ling Pingan’S Crayfish Feast (1)
In the pitch-black castle, Alucard sat quietly on his throne.
Beside him, a little girl in holy clothing trembled as she stood beside him.
“Don’t be afraid!” Alucard looked at the little girl. “Descendant of Van Helsing, with me here, no one can hurt you!”
However, the little girl’s body was still trembling in fear.
That was because, in the center of the pitch-black castle, countless ghostly blue flames were burning fiercely.
Corrosive liquids were gushing out from the surface of the ground.
Countless ferocious arms stretched out from the ghostly flames and the ground, densely packed together.
Thick vines hung from the ceiling and intertwined with each other.
Terrifying Hell ravings echoed in the castle.
Monsters with wings and heads of babies flew between the vines and ghost hands.
They chased, fought, and killed each other.
Then, they fell one after another into the ghost fire.
When enough amount of these little monsters died, the countless ghost hands and vines picked up a decomposed corpse from the corrosive liquid which was out from the ground.
They lifted the corpse and let it hang down.
Two sausage-like things covered the corpse-like monster’s face tightly.
“Alucard… Alucard…” a voice came from the corpse. Ghost hands stepped forward one by one and lifted the two sausage-like things, exposing the monster’s face.
It was a monster without a mouth and a nose.
Countless eyeballs were squeezed together like the center of the passion fruit in its eye sockets.
Its eyes lit up one after another.
“My arrangement in the east has been discovered…” an evil and terrifying whisper came from the monster’s body.
“I can feel that there is a powerful existence that has made a move…”
“In the east, there must be a change that we don’t know about!”
“Yes…” Alucard nodded. “William is Dead!”
“He died at the hands of an eastern monk…”
“Hill is also missing…”
“I can’t find Hill’s scent anymore…”
“I’m afraid!” Alucard looked at the monster. “We have to go to the east and take a look… to know what happened…”
“How do you plan to go?” The monster asked.
It was not easy to go to the east.
Once they entered, it would not be so easy to get out.
Especially now that they were already guarding against them.
“We can’t go secretly for sure!” Alucard smiled and said, “But we can go openly!”
“Through diplomatic channels!” He picked up the little girl beside him. “Didn’t the easterners say that ‘when two countries fight, they don’t kill the envoys’?”
“We will openly send a group of diplomats…”
… … ..
In the boring afternoon, Ling Pingan felt at ease as he lazed around.
“Yesterday I wrote 8,000 words, and today it’s 3,000 words again…” Ling Pingan said righteously. “I’m already very dedicated to my work!”
At the very least, Ling Pingan felt that he was much more diligent than that Eagle Chicken that always posted the emoji ‘Since I’ve updated a chapter yesterday, why should I update another today?’.
At the very least, he wrote it every day.
Unlike that guy, who was doing nothing in the group chat every day. He didn’t have any professionalism at all!
Thus, he charged into the canyon without any pressure.
Unfortunately, when he had just finished playing a game, and before he had time to play a second game, a text message appeared on Ling Pingan’s phone.
Aunty: Stinky brat, I’m in Xisong now. I will return to the mainland tonight!
Ling Pingan immediately panicked.
Then, another text message came: I’ll be arriving in Jiangcheng City tomorrow morning! Do you know what to do?
Ling Pingan felt the numbness in his scalp as he looked at the message. He carefully typed out: Crayfish Feast?
Thus, the poor bookstore owner wailed.
He knew that if his annoying aunt comes back tomorrow and there was no crayfish prepared for her, he definitely wouldn’t be able to live in peace.
There was no other way!
He could only give up on the grand mission of the canyon and start to prepare things up with tears in his eyes.
The kitten, Bastet jumped into his arms and gently rubbed against him, comforting its master.
“It’s a bad time!” Ling Pingan sighed and stroked the kitten’s fur. “Our good days are almost coming to an end!”
Nothing good would happen whenever his aunt visits!
Ling Pingan could imagine that his aunt would order him around for three meals a day.
What was worse was that his aunt might even force him to go shopping and work as her labor, carrying bags for her.
That was the most troublesome thing!
When this woman went shopping, she really wouldn’t stop.
Moreover, it was very likely that she wouldn’t buy a single item after shopping for a long time.
Then, she would continue shopping the next day!
It was simply terrifying!
But what could he do?
“Oh my God!” Ling Pingan lamented. “Bestow a strong man to subdue this lady!”
But he knew that it was impossible.
His aunt’s personality was so vile that no man dared to pursue her.
Ling Pingan felt that she probably wouldn’t be able to get married.
… … … ..
Xisong Kingdom was an island kingdom of the Federal Empire in the middle of the ocean.
Three hundred years ago, the place was still a barren island.
The colonists of the Land of Qin were the first to discover it, and they treated it as a place for convicts to be exiled.
With the beginning of the Yinshang liberation war, the Navy of the Federal Empire expelled the colonists who were entrenched here.
They brought benevolence and morality to this place, as well as a large number of immigrants.
After three hundred years of development, the Xisong kingdom had become a famous tourist destination of the Federal Empire.
Every year, tens of millions of people would come to the Xisong kingdom for traveling and sightseeing.
Hence, the new Bianjing International Airport of the Xisong kingdom was one of the busiest airports in the federal empire.
Countless passenger planes were transiting here.
Just like during the peak of summer, millions of people were transiting or entering the country from here every day.
Sitting in the VIP lounge, Li Anan swiped her phone while drinking the milk tea brought by the airport staff.
She put down her phone and couldn’t help but drool.
“Crayfish… I’m coming!” She cheered in her heart.
She should be peeling a plate of crayfish slowly and then drink beer comfortably in such a summer.
“Weiwei!” She looked at the Taoist nun sitting opposite her. “Come with me to Jiangcheng City tomorrow!”
“Let me tell you, the crayfish that my nephew makes is simply amazing!
“Also, the steak he makes is especially delicious!”
“I’m not bragging…”
“His culinary skills are good enough to be ranked in the top ten in the entire Federal Empire!”
Chu Weiwei listened and responded with an “Ah” before saying, “Captain, it would be troublesome for you…”
“What does that have to do with anything?” The beauty laughed. She was like a rose on a summer day, beautiful and moving. Countless tourists could not help but stop walking when they saw this scene. Then, they saw the young Daoist nun sitting opposite the beauty, like the beginning of spring buds, filled with the scent of youth.
Then, all of them felt the murderous aura around them.
They looked back and saw their wives or girlfriends.
… … … … … … ..
Ling Pingan held the kitten, Bastet as he walked in the busy market.
Although he was lazy and usually didn’t do anything.
However, he was naturally sharp when it came to delicacies.
Therefore, although he rarely bought vegetables, he could tell the quality of the ingredients at a glance.
“I knew it…” he looked at the stalls, but he didn’t find the crayfish he liked. “It’s so late, the good stuff must have been picked by someone!”
It was almost five o’clock now, and most of the things that could be bought were leftovers.
“Young master…” at this moment, a familiar voice came from behind him. “Are you here to buy ingredients?”
Ling Pingan turned around and found that it was the kind driver from yesterday.
He nodded and said, “Yes, I’m here to buy ingredients!”
“But, I didn’t find any good ingredients!”
The driver smiled and said, “There’s a new seafood stall nearby. The supply there is abundant. Young master, maybe you can go and take a look!”
“Where is it?” Ling Pingan looked around and didn’t find any new seafood stall.
“It’s a little ahead…” the driver said enthusiastically, “Anyway, I’m free. Why don’t I take you there?”
“It’s too much trouble!” Ling Pingan quickly said.
“It’s not troublesome!” The driver said, “I’m a volunteer, To help others is to help yourself!”
“Who knows, I might need your help someday!” When he said this, the young driver’s heart pounded.
“Sure! Sure!” Ling Pingan smiled.
When the driver heard this, his hands trembled. He immediately made an inviting gesture to hide his reaction. “Young Master, please follow me!”
Thus, he brought Ling Pingan out of the market and came to a small alley beside the market.
He walked to a house without a sign or even the name of the shop. He knocked on the door and brought Ling Pingan in.
As he walked, he introduced to Ling Pingan, “Young Master, this is a seafood stall that only accepts regular customers!”
“This place also serves the best seafood in the entire federal!”
“Moreover, the price is very fair!”
Ling Pingan looked at the small shop.
He had a feeling that the shop seemed to be newly opened?
But very quickly, he forgot all his doubts.
That was because he saw a vat full of fresh crayfish in front of him.
He could tell at a glance that that was the top-grade crayfish that he had been looking for!
It was big, clean, filled with flesh!
“How much is this crayfish?” Ling Pingan asked a staff member.
The staff member looked at the driver beside Ling Pingan and said with a smile, “Customer, our crayfish are raised in the mountain stream in Yungui!”
“They grew up in the mountain spring and ate insects and herbs in the forest…”
“So, the price is a little higher!”
The driver coughed when he heard this.
He immediately said with a smile, “Twenty yuan for one catty!”
Ling Pingan scratched his head. Twenty yuan for one catty? It was a little expensive!
But looking at the crayfish, he nodded and said, “Give me ten catties!”
“Okay!” He immediately picked up a net and scooped out a net full of crayfish from the water tank.
