Monster Paradise - Chapter 154
He brought the boy back to the hotel. Lin Huang wondered how he was going to settle this problem.
The main problem was not the boy's huge appetite. It was that Lin Huang had no idea how he would explain this to Lin Xin.
He thought for a while and turned his head to look at the boy, "I shouldn't be calling you little brat all the time and it’s also impolite to call you with a number. I should give you a new name."
The boy nodded his head.
"Alright. Your new name will be Lin Xuan."
After confirming the name, Lin Huang looked at the boy again, "I give you this name in hopes that you can become a dignified man in future."
The boy nodded his head, pointed at himself with his finger and said, "Lin Xuan."
"Yes, you are right. From today onward, your name is Lin Xuan." Lin Huang in turn, pointed at himself and said, "I am Lin Huang. From today onward, I'm your brother."
Lin Xuan nodded his head and pointed at Lin Huang, "Brother."
"I have a sister. Her name is Lin Xin. She is 13 years old. She is your sister." Lin Huang continued. "In 20 days, I’ll bring you home and introduce her to you."
Lin Xuan nodded his head again.
"Lin Xuan, I will practice with my sword in the living room every day. Don't come near me because I'm afraid I might hurt you if I’m not aware that you are close by. If you’re hungry, let me know and we’ll go out and look for food." Lin Huang said.
Lin Xuan nodded his head. He seemed like he had thought of something. He hesitated for a while, looked at Lin Huang and said, "Hungry…"
"You're hungry already?" Lin Huang looked at the time. It was only slightly after 11 a.m. and it was indeed already time for lunch.
He immediately brought Lin Xuan to the buffet restaurant downstairs.
A huge variety of food was available during lunch compared to breakfast. There were various types of meat.
Lin Xuan took more than half an hour to eat his fill to satisfy his hunger, having already eaten almost all the meat in the buffet restaurant.
He brought Lin Xuan back to his room and Lin Huang began practicing with his sword in the living room.
Lin Xuan was initially resting at his room but after a while, Lin Xuan went to the living room and looked at Lin Huang who was practicing with his sword.
As he looked at Lin Huang, he began to follow Lin Huang's movements.
Lin Huang laughed at him. He did not bother, allowing him to learn.
It took Lin Huang for exactly one month to learn the Wildfire Sword skill. It was only then that he could gather a sufficient number of skill pieces to integrate them into a Rare Skill Card. If it was any other talented person, it would take them at least half a year to actually learn this skill so he was not too worried about Lin Xuan being able to master it.
However, after practicing his technique several times, he noticed that Lin Xuan began to use his hand as a sword, performing the complete Wildfire Sword stances. To top it off, there seemed to be a lingering charm in the way he practiced.
"Could it be? Is it possible that he’s a sword genius?" Lin Huang sheathed his sword and stared at Lin Xuan's movement.
He was assured that he was a sword genius as he looked at Lin Xuan's movement. Lin Xuan had already mastered the Dao of the Sword. The sword skill that he was performing was not the Rare Wildfire Sword Skill that Lin Huang had been practicing. Instead, it was the Epic Wildfire Sword Skill.
Some of the movements that Lin Xuan did were different from the ones that Lin Huang practiced. Lin Huang confirmed that Lin Xuan did not blindly follow what he did but instead, derived completely different Epic Sword Skill stances.
After he finished practicing the whole set of sword skill, Lin Xuan stopped. He then returned to his senses. When he saw Lin Huang looking at his direction, he looked back at Lin Huang with doubt.
"Lin Xuan, the stances you were practicing earlier… Have you learned it in the past before?" Lin Huang asked.
Lin Xuan was confused so he shook his head.
"It's true! I have found a sword genius!" Lin Huang was excited. Lin Xuan only watched him practice Wildfire Sword several times and he could already perform the complete stance for an Epic Sword Skill.
He passed the wooden sword to Lin Xuan and said, "Come, show me one more time using this sword."
Lin Huang purposely bought the wooden sword so that he would not damage anything in the hotel's living room.
Lin Xuan took the wooden sword and started practice with the sword.
Lin Xuan moved aside when he saw Lin Huang resuming his practice which was actually stances he got from watching Lin Xuan earlier. After watching that for a while, he went back into his room, seemingly uninterested in it.
However, Lin Huang was inspired by Lin Xuan and the speed he accumulated skill card pieces had become faster.
He would usually get about 20 skill card pieces in a day. However, he had gotten more than 20 skill card pieces during the afternoon alone.
During dinner time, Lin Xuan walked out of his room and saw that Lin Huang was still practicing with his sword. He hesitated a little and still, he said, "Brother, hungry…"
"Alright. We’ll go for dinner." Lin Huang looked at the time. It was about 5 p.m. now. He immediately put his sword away and washed his face. Then, he brought Lin Xuan to the buffet restaurant again.
Similar to the previous visit, Lin Xuan spent half an hour for dinner and finished all the meat in the restaurant.
They were about to leave when the hotel manager approached them, his face obviously sour.
"Mr. Ye, our restaurant is going to lose money if your child continues to eat like this. There are many other buffet restaurants out there and you need not visit this restaurant only. Maybe trying other restaurant's dishes will be good for the both of you." It was apparent that the manager was being selfish and said, "If you're not satisfied with our service, we’ll compensate you."
"It's okay. I won't make things difficult. I'll look for some other buffet restaurant." Lin Huang felt that the hotel was quite uncomfortable and did not want to put the hotel staff through too much hassle.
"Thank you. I'm sorry for the inconveniences caused." The hotel manager apologized.
Again, he brought Lin Xuan back to his room and continued practicing with his sword.
It was 10 p.m. now. Lin Xuan did not mention anything about being hungry and had already fallen asleep.
Lin Huang practiced until 12 a.m. He then took a bath and went to bed.
The next day morning at around 8 am, Lin Huang opened his eyes and saw Lin Xuan standing in front of his room. He did not stand at the headboard anymore.
The first thing Lin Xuan said as soon as Lin Huang woke up was, "Brother, hungry…"
"Let me wash up first. We’ll go for breakfast." Lin Huang and Lin Xuan went downstairs and headed to another buffet restaurant nearby.
Once again, many people were amazed by Lin Xuan's appetite.
Lin Huang and Lin Xuan tried almost all the buffet restaurants nearby in the following days.
Most of the buffet restaurants owners knew that there was a child with very big appetite as he could eat more food than the restaurant's daily sales within a day.
Lin Huang and Lin Xuan had been blacklisted by many of the buffet restaurants.
"We just got blacklisted by the 17th buffet restaurant." Lin Huang was not embarrassed. Instead, he was actually proud of his new brother’s achievements.
The speed Lin Huang's could accumulate skill pieces grew faster and faster. The reason for this was because he began practicing his sword with Lin Xuan.
On his 19th day staying in Peaceful City, Lin Huang had finally accumulated 3,000 Wildfire Sword skill card pieces.
A notification from Xiao Hei finally arrived.
"You have accumulated Wildfire Sword skill pieces x3,000. They can be integrated into a Wildfire Sword Skill Card. Upon completing the integration process, your Wildfire Sword Skill Card can be upgraded from Rare to Epic. Would you like to integrate this card?"
"Yes!" Lin Huang was thrilled!
"Integrating Wildfire Sword skill pieces x3,000. Integrating Rare Wildfire Sword Skill Card."
"Congratulations, you have gained Epic Sword Skill - Wildfire Sword."
Lin Huang immediately tapped on the Skill Card to see the description.
"Skill Name: Wildfire Sword"
"Type of Skill: Sword"
"Skill Level: Unavailable"
"Card Remarks: Passable"
Lin Huang was excited for the entire afternoon after he obtained his second Epic Skill Card.
"It's great. I have completed advancing my sword skill before returning to Baqi City." Lin Huang was quite satisfied with his progress.
He had been practicing with his sword for many days before he finally got his second Epic Skill Card. He wanted to rest in the coming days.
On his 20th day staying in Peaceful City, Lin Huang and Lin Xuan went out to look for food. They began eating from morning until 10 o'clock at night. Then, they returned to the hotel.
The next morning on the 21st day, they checked out of the hotel. They then proceed to ride on the Viridian Wolf to the portal. At about 8.30 a.m., both of them arrived at the portal.
It was undeniable that an A-Grade foothold was huge as there were already hundreds of people waiting there when they arrived.
At 9 a.m., there were about 1,000 people waiting at the portal.
The staff at the portal started to get busy.
They went to the counter and Lin Huang bought him a portal ticket. Although he had bought a single ticket earlier, he was allowed to bring along other people as long as he bought another ticket for them with the same destination he was going to.
Maybe it was stricter at A-Grade footholds, possibly it was also because of the ticket prices which were expensive but Lin Huang did not see any ticket scalpers here.
It was slightly after 10 a.m. before Lin Huang finally heard the staff calling his name. He brought Lin Xuan along and walked towards the dimensional portal.
As soon as the staffs had set their destination, both of them quickly walked through.
The golden dimensional portal gradually closed behind them…
