Lord Xue Ying - Volume 1 - Chapter 10
Book 1: Chapter 10 - Devouring Like a Wolf
A petite maid held a wooden basin full of clothes and walked quickly through the snow. Suddenly, she saw something confusing. A man was face down on ground with little snow around him.
’’What happened?’’ The little maid walked over in wonder.
’’It's master!’’ As she got closer, she recognized that the man kneeling there was the lord of Xue Ying territory. His back was a little red and sent out hot air. Vapor floated around him. There was hardly any snow in the surrounding ten meter radius, they were completely melted. If some powerful knight or sorcerer saw this, one would be mind-blown.
However, this little maid was just an ordinary person. She would never understand what him using just the energy from his body to melt the ten meter area of nearby snow meant.
’’Why did the surrounding snow melt? Is this Dou Qi?’’ The little maid thought, at the same time couldn't help but shouted, ’’Master, master, are you alright?’’
She was kind of timid.
Dong Bo Xue Ying was often overwhelmed by sweat and hot air, and sometimes even collapsed from exhaustion, so the maid thought her master once again had Qi Gong deviation from spear training.
’’I'm fine.’’ Xue Ying's voice was a bit hoarse. He stood up slowly.
Dong Bo Xue Ying swiveled and glanced at his maid, ’’Unusually great!’’
The little maid was stiff and didn't dare say a word.
’’Transmit my order. Prepare the kitchen. I want a whole magical beast baked and sent to me.’’ Dong Bo Xue Ying said.
’’A whole beast?’’ The maid stared at him.
It was common sense that a normal horse weighed from 700 to 1000 pounds. Like the Frost Pegasus, it weighed almost 2000 pounds. As for other stronger magical beasts, they usually weighed several thousand pounds or even more than 10000 pounds. Because demon beast meat contained many energies beneficial to training, it was Xue Ying's staple food, and was available to the castle knights as well.
That was why one or two magical beasts were always stored in the castle's freezer. But those one or two beasts supplied the entire castle and would normally last for days.
’’Yes, an entire one. The last time I went there, I saw a level three beast and a level two beast. Fully roast the level three beast and send it to me.’’ Xue Ying ordered.
’’Got it.’’ The maid tamely went to transmit his order.
Xue Ying watched the maid run away with the big basin in her hands. He smiled, grabbed his clothes and put them on. He looked like the same young and handsome man as before... but only he knew how powerful and terrifying his body had become!
’’Let's see how high I can jump.’’ Xue Ying looked at the grand main building in front of him which he lived in. The railings were seven meters above the ground. He was able to jump up to the railing, grab it and then swing himself over!
He pushed off the ground hard and flew into the sky like a shadow, and didn't stop until he reached the top of the castle. Even Xue Ying was surprised. But nobody else noticed this scene due to the heavy snow.
’’I can really jump this high? The main building is more than 20 meters tall. As I recall, although the wall of Water Rites Town is high, it is only 18 meters. I'm able to easily jump over Water Rites Town's wall?’’ Xue Ying was shocked. From this feat he could tell what his new rank was.
Xue Ying jumped down from the roof, then went to the dining room and waited for his roasted meat.
He was really very hungry. He had never been hungrier before. Although Xue Ying was excited about his level up, the hunger was driving him crazy;that's why he immediately ordered a beast roasted.
Xue Ying snagged some desserts from the plate and swallowed them in one gulp. His evolved stomach instantly absorbed the desserts. But they were far from enough to satisfy him.
’’Master, master.’’ A bearded servant ran towards Xue Ying and asked with his rough voice, ’’Master, you want an entire roasted magic beast, the rank 3 beast?’’
’’Yes!’’ Xue Ying glanced at him,’’ As quickly as possible! Bring it to me as soon as it's done.’’
’’Got it, got it.’’ The bearded servant was shocked. He executed the order without hesitation.
Usually when the master commanded someone to do something, the head cook wouldn't even dare to question him, but this time the command was simply unimaginable! A whole rank 3 magic beast! That was no less than 6000 kilograms of magic beast flesh! That amount of meat was worth an enormous amount of money! Furthermore, the command didn't come from the master's personal servant, but instead from a young laundry maid. It was because of this that the head cook came to double check with Xue Ying.
Otherwise, if the maid had been telling lies, then the maid would have been truly unlucky! The value of a rank 3 magic beast and the possible repercussions of wasting it made even the head cook tremble in fear.
'The master wants to roast a whole magic beast! Isn't that too much of a waste even for him?' The head cook secretly thought to himself, but he didn't dare to voice his concerns. How could he possibly question the master's command? All he needed to do was comply with the command!
As Dong Bo Xue Ying waited, he had to endure the trembling throughout his whole body caused by his extreme hunger.
Finally, he could smell the fragrance of roasted meat.
Dong Bo Xue Ying scuttled out of the dining hall and reached the railings in a flash. He looked down from the railings and saw a cart slowly moving forwards with a flock of male servants following beside it. Within the cart was precisely the two halves of the roasted magic beast that he had ordered! The 6000 kilogram magic beast had had its lungs taken out and had been drained of its watery blood. All of the servants were standing motionlessly. This was due to the amount of energy required to transport the roasted beast over. It truly was troublesome.
’’Just a bit further and we'll have delivered it to the master. Everyone, lets muster our strengths and work as one. Together we'll be able to go up.’’ The male servants were discussing the easiest way to deliver the food that weighed over 5,000 kilograms to the second floor of the building.
The ground suddenly shook. A youth dressed in black stood upon the cart before them.
’’Master.’’ All of the sturdy male servants stared blankly at him before yelling respectfully.
’’Alright then, hand over this magic beast. You can all go on with your businesses now.’’ Saying this, Dong Bo Xue Ying lifted the gigantic plate with the two halves of the roasted magic beast from within the cart.
The plate was even bigger than his own body! Dong Bo Xue Ying promptly began walking towards the dining hall.
The male servants just stood on the side lifelessly.
He's carrying it. He can carry this much and walk?
The beast weighed 6,000 kilograms. Even if it lost some weight while being roasted, it still weighed over 5,000 kilograms. A group of strong men working together could only drag it to the second floor, yet he just carried it away like this? Just how strong could he be?
’’Don't gossip to others.’’ Xue Ying said, glancing downwards.
’’Yes.’’ The servants answered.
Dong Bo Xue Ying knew that the news would be spread out sooner or later. But it was not a big deal. Anyway, it was common for wealthy clans to do some wasteful things. The more wasteful, the more mightiness the clans would think they were showing
Without a stable financial situation, who could be wasteful?
As for lifting more a magic beast weighing more than 5,000 kilograms, that was nothing. It was only a matter of time before he would reveal his ability.
’’Our master can lift more than 5,000 pounds of magic beast. He must be a Heaven Knight now, right?’’
’’Maybe. A fifteen-year-old Heaven knight. He will only turn sixteen after the New Year. How extraordinary.’’
’’Hmph, you see how powerful our master is, but you haven't seen how crazy he is while training. The servants in the Training Field said that they could feel tougher just by watching!’’
The servants murmured.
’’Kuang dong!’’ The big plate was laid on the dining table. It was so heavy that the table shook.
Ping~~ Dong Bo Xue Ying closed the door of dining room immediately.
The servants thought that their master was just wasteful.
But in fact...
Dong Bo Xue Ying was really eager to eat!
’’Let's eat.’’ Dong Bo Xue Ying picked up the knife and cut out a five kilogram piece of meat. He ate it with a big gulp. Even the bones were chewed and swallowed. His body was cheering and madly taking in the energy. The moment the food entered his stomach, it was already fully digested.
His body that was so hungry and short of energy kept digesting and absorbing energy.
Eat Eat Eat!
Dong Bo Xue Ying swallowed the food so fast one could see the food being gradually consumed. All of the golden roasted meat, and even the small bones, were gobbled down. He only left some big bones behind.
’’Xue Ying, Xue Ying, why are you so wasteful now?’’ The voice of Lion Man Tong San came with a hint of anger. Nobody in the castle except for Tong San dared to criticize him.
Lion Man Tong San pushed the door open with anger. But in the next moment he was shocked. Only the big skeleton was left on the plate, and all the small bones and pieces of meat were gone.
Dong Bo Xue Ying cleaned his mouth and smiled, ’’Uncle Zong, as you can see, I didn't waste anything.’’
