I Really Am Not The Lord of Demon - Chapter 195
Chapter 195 – Loan
Ran Bing sat on the sofa in the strange living room with caution.
She only dared to sit on it a little.
Because the moment she sat on it, she already felt that she wasn’t sitting on a sofa at all!
Instead, it was…
A lump of slippery and cold flesh!
Moreover, that thing was still slowly squirming!
Raising her head, she saw a seemingly smooth table on the table in front of her.
A small flame had appeared out of nowhere.
It swayed gently, and eyes seemed to grow in the light of the flame.
It looked at Ran Bing and then slowly disappeared.
It was as if the security inspector had completed the security check.
The little black kitten gracefully jumped onto the sofa opposite her. Its amber cat eyes stared straight at Ran Bing.
That made Ran Bing shivered uncontrollably!
Fortunately, the little cat didn’t seem to have any ill intentions.
It only looked at Ran Bing and observed Ran Bing.
… … ..
Walking between the bookshelves, Ling Pingan smirked.
A real person that loved combat games?
She was a firearms enthusiast!
Thus, he reached out and pulled out a book from the bookshelf.
That was a great book. Just as its name suggested, the book described the history of the development of various individual weapons, as well as their basic structure, characteristics, and design details.
To military enthusiasts, that was a rare, good book!
Ling Pingan turned his head and looked at the customer sitting on the sofa.
Considering that the lady might not like to read such hardcore works, Ling Pingan reached out and took out another book: ‘Gun Girl’!
Compared to the hardcore “Firearm”, which was a classic reference book.
“Gun Girl” was different. It personified guns and used the image of a young girl’s anime to tell the story of guns to the readers.
It was pretty good!
Holding these two books, Ling Pingan continued to walk inside.
That was a big customer!
He couldn’t let her underestimate his bookstore!
Ling Pingan raised his head and looked at the cabinet on top of the bookshelf inside.
He tiptoed and opened the cabinet. Rows of old books came into view.
Ling Pingan reached out and pulled out a thick book from inside.
“Individual combat tactics and application”!
That was one of the treasures of Ling Pingan’s bookstore!
Ordinary people wouldn’t be able to buy such a book.
That was because it was a military academy textbook that talked about the techniques and training of single soldier combat.
That was bought many years ago when this bookstore was still managed by his aunt. At that time, that woman had been clamoring to join the military every day and become a modern Hua Mulan.
Therefore, she bought a series of military books.
The book ‘Individual tactics and application’ was bought by his aunt through connections.
One day, his aunt gave up the dreams of being Hua Mulan.
She decided to become an ancient culture researcher!
That was normal!
She was always hot-headed when doing things!
Speaking of which, for her being able to work in that ancient culture research institute for so long was really beyond Ling Pingan’s imagination!
Ling Pingan had initially predicted that she would only work there for three months at most!
Who knew that she would work there for several years!
That book had been in the bookstore for a few years.
If he could sell it, he could at least recover some of his money!
Thus, Ling Pingan took the three books and walked back with light steps while humming a song.
“Looking up, the starry sky is high and far…”
A gentle chant came from afar.
“Night falls, the sky is full of stars…” the sound of footsteps came slowly.
While singing, Ran Bing felt that everything in front of her eyes was hazy.
One terrifying monster after another, which could not be described with words or words, danced in the chant.
It was like an orchestra that moved with the conductor’s baton.
“The Golden Age is gone, and the end has come… break out of the cage, the god of Awakening!”
The hazy scene in front of her gradually showed a substantial picture.
The earth was collapsing, and the mountains were shattering.
One city after another with dense populations was burning.
Countless people ran and fled.
In the miserable howls, tentacles stretched out from the ground and the bottom of the sea!
The moment he woke up, the entire world was destined to be doomed to a tragic extinction!
The chanting by her ears continued.
“In his name, the beginning of the new era…”
“When he returned, the sky was dark…”
Strong winds howled on the shattered land. The sand and dust that were swept up danced in the sky, blocking out the sunlight.
The world inevitably walked towards the age of darkness.
The floating cities became the last refuge of the world’s life.
“Is this the truth of the collapse of the Old World?” Ran Bing gulped.
She looked at the people who had boarded the floating cities in the haze.
She tried to find the shadows of their parents.
Unfortunately, she couldn’t find them!
The chanting in her ears stopped abruptly at this moment.
A hand was placed on Ran Bing’s shoulder.
Everything in front of her shattered as if it was just an illusion and imagination of Ran Bing.
“Customer…” Ran Bing turned around and saw the strange man holding the books that gave off an ominous and terrifying aura. “Take a look at these books…”
“Are they to your liking?!”
In the head shrouded in fog, the glowing flames flowed like the sun.
Ran Bing took a deep breath and mustered all her courage to ask, “What song did you sing just now?”
“Oh…” the other party chuckled and answered, “I heard it when I was playing the game…”
“How was it? Did It sound good?”
Ran Bing nodded in a daze.
“Playing the game…”
“Is the collapse of a world just a game in his eyes?!”
Ran Bing did not know what the collapse of the Old World had to do with the strange man in front of her.
However, she was certain that everything in the Old World was closely related to him!
“Customer…” the man sat down on the sofa opposite Ran Bing with great anticipation. He sat upright, like a king, full of power, but also like a demon king who ruled over everything, full of mystery.
His pet jumped into his arms.
The holy light reflected by the pyramid could not even touch him.
Ran Bing looked at the situation.
She suddenly had an epiphany.
“Maybe to the person… no… it should be him…”
“To him, the collapse of the world is indeed a simple game…”
His voice came into her ears.
It was very easy-going, but it was filled with unquestionable and irresistible strength. “Read the book first and see if you like it.”
When Ran Bing listened to this sentence.
She did not know why, but she felt that there were additional meaning and information hidden in this sentence.
She lowered her head and looked at the three books in her hands.
Evil and terrifying eyes opened one by one on the cover of these books.
Their ominous eyes stared at Ran Bing.
Countless terrifying and strange voices sounded in Ran Bing’s ears.
“How lucky are you!”
“The great ruler allowed you to walk in!”
“You can even walk out alive!”
In a daze, Ran Bing saw these eyes, interweaving one image after another in front of her eyes.
Countless corpses piled up in the deep fog.
The people who walked in…
But those who survived…
Were few and far between!
Those who could see the lights of this place in the fog were even less than one in a hundred!
Every person who could walk in and walk here.
They were all chosen.
Ran Bing shook her head, the vision in front of her disappeared.
“So, I was also chosen?” She asked herself in her heart.
In that case…
She raised her head and looked at the strange man who was stroking his pet.
“For what purpose…did he…chose me?”
Ran Bing didn’t know, but her intuition told her not to think about it.
Because she couldn’t think about it!
So, she continued to lower her head, picked up one of the books, and looked at the cover.
There, twisted gas was squirming on the cover.
Two special evil characters were forming.
Although Ran Bing couldn’t understand these two terrifying evil characters.
However, the moment she saw these two characters, a terrifying voice whispered in her ear, “Firearm Spirit!”
Along with this whisper, countless terrifying thoughts and knowledge churned in her brain.
It told Ran Bing what was recorded and described in the book in her hand.
The taboo knowledge of transforming a weapon into a life!
Using the transformed weapon to hunt other lives.
During the hunt, it would continuously evolve and grow.
At the same time, the transformed Firearm Spirit would feed on its owner.
It would evolve and grow. Eventually, the Firearm Spirit and its master would grow into existence close to a god!
Ran Bing took a deep breath. She wanted to open the book and read the terrifying contents.
That was not allowed!
Because she was not qualified to read this book, nor was she qualified to use it!
Ran Bing put the book down and picked up the second book.
A heavy feeling came from the hand when she touched it.
She looked down, and the ominous cloud of Death hung over the cover.
Gurgling blood, flowing slowly on the cover.
Countless mournful wails came faintly.
The whispers were heard again, “Seven Killing Book!”
Kill, kill, kill, kill, kill, kill, kill!
Only this one word was rolling in Ran Bing’s brain.
Killing is real!
Killing is the way!
Killing is right!
Killing one is a sin. Killing ten thousand is heroic!
Kill all those who oppose you, monster!
Even if an ant has been slightly disrespectful, it had to be exterminated!
The day of success is the day of awakening.
Awakening to what?
The Great Old Dominator!
Able to cross the world, the stars, and the universe. Even could exist in the past and future high-dimensional life!
Ran Bing took a deep breath!
She knew that the things recorded in this book could crumble her at a glance!
She put the book aside and looked at the last one.
She picked it up and placed it in her hand.
Billowing green smoke rose from the cover.
A strange sound came from the smoke.
Distorted words walked through the smoke, and Ran Bing could finally recognize the book’s name: Spirit of the Firearm!
That was a book of taboos that was completely different from the Firearm Spirit.
If the Firearm Spirit talked about forging a brand-new weapon and continuously absorbing the life, psionic energy, and soul of the prey during the process of use, and continuously evolving, the owner would need to rely on the Firearm Spirit’s devour on the owner to become stronger.
Then that book recorded that the practitioner relied on their strength to modify the weapon.
They used their strength to suppress everything!
Unlike the Firearm Spirit, if the Firearm Spirit died, the master would die without a doubt.
She put down the book in her hand.
Ran Bing examined them one by one.
Out of these three books, she wanted the other two except for the ‘Seven Killing Book’.
But the problem was…
She raised her head and looked at the strange man opposite her.
She was very clear that everything in the world needed a price!
What price did these books need?
Thus, she mustered up her courage and asked the man, “Sir, how do you plan to sell them?”
Hearing Ran Bing’s question, the other party slowly straightened his sitting posture and asked softly, “Customer, which book do you want?”
Ran Bing lowered her head and picked up the ‘Firearm Spirit’, then picked up the ‘Spirit of the firearm’.
To be honest, she wanted both books!
Because she knew that these two books would work together.
She understood that such a book, such a magical book, and a taboo book would have to pay a price that she probably could not bear.
After thinking over it, she finally made a decision!
She clenched her teeth and picked up the Firearm Spirit, asking, “How much is this book?”
Ling Pingan looked at the book with the cute gun lady drawn on it.
He laughed, “As expected, the animation is more attractive!”
It made sense. The girls’ love for the comic was not much different from that of young people!
When Ling Pingan was in university, a few female students in the class would spend one to two thousand gold coins every month to read the comics!
It was much more expensive than the other male students who spent money playing games!
No wonder some economists said that women’s spending power was the strongest!
And the spending power of men was inferior to that of pets!
However, Ling Pingan also noticed that the other party seemed to have a good impression of the hardcore “Firearms” book.
However, for some reason, she did not inquire about the price.
As an excellent bookstore owner, how could Ling Pingan let go of a potential deal like this?
Thus, he smiled and said, “Customer, the price of your book is 52 yuan…”
This kind of two-dimensional book was relatively cheap, but the profit was not bad!
“But if you buy the other book…”
“I can give you a discount…”
“I can sell it to you 200 yuan for both if you buy the two books together!”
Ran Bing listened to the strange man in front of her.
“Fifty-two Yuan?” She frowned.
The Old World had collapsed, and there was no monetary system in the floating city. What replaced it was wealth calculated by contribution points.
In this strange bookstore.
Did money exist?
Or the money he mentioned was the same understanding of money by humans?
Ran Bing did not know how to answer.
The kitten in the strange man’s arms suddenly purred.
Ran Bing looked at her.
The kitten. The god.
Some will appeared in her.
To be more precise, it was projected from the pyramid behind her.
In the pyramid, the pure Black Pharaoh’s figure had appeared.
The scepter in his hand rippled with endless strength.
His will was accurately transmitted to Ran Bing.
He was willing to give her a loan!
