Chapter 11: Who Is Dollar?
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Han Sen was digging a pit at the foot of the mountain, planning to bury the giant golden axe there.
Although he escaped the manhunt of Son of Heaven by shapes.h.i.+fting into the blood slayer, there was a limit to how long he could shapes.h.i.+ft.
As one of the most powerful beast soul types, shapes.h.i.+fting beast souls could directly impart significant changes to a human body, which could be unbearable for those with weak genes.
The stronger the creature one wanted to shapes.h.i.+ft into, the more geno points and bodies were needed.
In general, for primitive beast souls, the number of minutes the body could withstand the shapes.h.i.+fting was equal to the number of primitive geno points gained. In addition, one mutant geno point could support ten minutes of shapes.h.i.+fting with primitive beast souls; and in turn, ten primitive geno points could support one minute of shapes.h.i.+fting with mutant beast souls.
Now Han Sen had eight sacred geno points, which could last him only eight minutes for shapes.h.i.+fting as a blood slayer. Even counting the ordinary, primitive and mutant genes he had gained altogether, he could shapes.h.i.+ft for less than ten minutes.
It was enough for escaping, but if he were to fight a gang of people, he could only kill one or two before his time was up.
No one could see a sacred-blood beast soul if it wasn’t summoned, yet the golden axe could not be turned invisible. The person he mainly had offended was Son of Heaven, yet the campaign was a joint one, and the axe should’ve been the mutual gain of all three gangs. Hence, Han Sen had p.i.s.sed off all of them and could only bury the axe in that spot for the time being.
"If I could sell the giant golden axe, it should easily bring at least two million." Han Sen was still excited after burying the axe.
A sacred-blood gear was not as valuable as a sacred-blood beast soul, but still considered almost priceless. If he could sell it, two million would be a small amount.
As for the sacred-blood beast soul, Han Sen had not even thought of selling. This was the bedrock of his survival and success in G.o.d’s Sanctuary, and it would be like kiling the goose that lays the golden egg if he were to sell it.
Returning to Steel Armor Shelter, he saw Luo Tianyang guarding the gate with others. Everyone who tried to enter the shelter was interrogated.
"Can you even see what beast souls I have?" Han Sen had no fear as he had already buried the golden axe.
A young man at the gate stopped him and wanted to do a body search on him, while Luo Tianyang said, "Why waste any time on that sc.u.mbag. How is it even possible that he would be Dollar?
"F*#k off." The young man pushed Han Sen away and turned to search other people.
Han Sen looked at Luo Tianyang with a sneer and went into the shelter.
Everyone in the street was talking about what had happened at Sunset Slope. Listening to people calling him Doll, Han Sen thought, "d.a.m.n Su Xiaoqiao. Who told you to call me Doll?" He was happy to know that Son of Heaven was furious and strode back to his room.
In another room, Su Xiaoqiao stood in front of Qin Xuan, almost in tears. "Xuan, you need to believe me. I’ve told you everything I know. I really did not know Dollar, but only saw him once in Zephyr Valley and bought some swift mantises from him, which I gave to my bros as gifts. Just ask around if you don’t believe me. They even helped carry the mantises back from the valley.
"I am not blaming you. I just want you to contact Dollar, tell him I am willing to buy his sacred-blood beast soul and gear, and ask him how much he wants," Qin Xuan said quietly.
"But I really do not know where he is!" Su Xiaoqiao said sadly.
"Then go find him. Don’t let anyone know about this and go look for him secretly. If you manage the task, I’ll reward you." Qin Xuan showed Su Xiaoqiao out after she gave the order, not waiting for his reply.
After he left, Qin Xuan frowned to herself, "Who could Dollar be? Is he someone in Fist Guy’s gang? Or was the whole thing orchestrated by Son of Heaven? If he really is on his own, can I get him on my side? If I can’t, it would also be nice to purchase the sacred-blood beast soul and gear."
Almost at the same time, Fist Guy sent his men to look for Dollar in secret, trying to buy the sacred-blood beast soul and gear from him.
Although it was a joint action, the only one who suffered a loss was Son of Heaven.
If it had not been for his sacred-blood wasp arrow, the b.l.o.o.d.y slayer would have run away and there would have been nothing for Qin Xuan and Fist Guy. Now they could share some flesh of the b.l.o.o.d.y slayer, so it had gone well for them.
However, Son of Heaven lost a mutant beast soul mount and a sacred-blood wasp arrow, while being robbed of the sacred-blood beast soul and gear. Anyone in his place would have been exasperated.
The entire Steel Armor Shelter was looking for Dollar, yet no one connected him to a.s.s Freak.
Son of Heaven also put a price on his head, and even offered to pay a reward for any substantive information. The price was so good that even Han Sen wanted to offer himself for the reward.
"Primitive green-scaled beast flesh eaten. One primitive geno point gained."
Han Sen squatted in the bushes, watching a deep pond near him while chewing meat jerky made from the green-scaled beast.
Up until this point, he had gained 91 ordinary geno points, 26 primitive geno points, zero mutant geno points and eight sacred geno points.
The copper-toothed beast was still slowly evolving, so Han Sen could only go out to hunt some primitive creatures, hoping to gain more primitive geno points.
Because the black beetle armor would draw too much attention, he could only go deep into the mountains where n.o.body goes, fearing that Son of Heaven would know where he was.
Fortunately, G.o.d’s Sanctuary was so vast that there were many places where humans had never set foot, so it was rather easy for Han Sen to disappear.
While staring at the deep pond, Han Sen suddenly heard a distant voice of a man and immediately tensed up.
