Chapter 113 Several Equipments
“Those things outside are not bad, indeed pretty good!” Blackbeard brought Lin Qi in a slow walk along the narrow passage. He complacently smiled and said, “But those things don’t have much use. Indeed, they are all thorny goods, bringing them out will only invite troubles.”
Proudly humming part of a certain Western opera aria, Blackbeard walked in exaggerated strides and said with a smile, “The truly useful things are all inside these three secret warehouses. Lin Qi, unlike the medicine warehouse you saw last time, the family’s most precious things are all in here.”
Lin Qi narrowed his eyes that contained greed. He kept close to Blackbeard as they entered a small square-shaped secret warehouse over 20 meters wide. Dozens of metal racks were neatly arranged; on theme were several appealing crystal medicine bottles as well as several strange containers.
“Lin Qi, Father helped you opened your meridians just now, but your meridians still aren’t stable. The bowl of decoction was only an initial step in helping you stabilize your current strength. So this bottle of ‘Saber-toothed Golden Leopard Pill’, you have to take it. Seven pills in total, as long as you consume one daily for a total of three pills, they can help you to thoroughly stabilize your meridians, also they can make your meridians several times stronger than those of ordinary knights.”
Blackbeard threw a golden crystal medicine bottle as big as a fist to Lin Qi. Lin Qi stuffed the medicine bottle into his pocket with shining eyes. The importance of meridians for a fighter went without saying, the more stable the meridians the less obstruction there would be and the more powerful the qi they could support. Regardless of training or fighting, powerful meridians could display an enormous efficiency.
Furthermore, Lin Qi only needed to use three pills to stabilize his meridians while he had seven pills. In other words, Lin Qi had four extra Saber-toothed Golden Leopard Pills, enough to let Enzo, Wei Ke, and Yu Lian gain a certain benefit.
The things stored inside the secret cave were all extremely precious medicinal ingredients. They were rare medicine the Black Tiger Family managed to seize and rob in so many years. The nobilities of every country or kingdom on the continent had always been fond of buying several precious medicine from certain distant places to nurture the young elites of the family, but they also like to transport these medicine through the sea. Hence, many medicine fell into the hands of Black Tiger Family.
Blackbeard chose two bottles of unusual medicine that could strengthen the body’s quality as well as several bottles of pills and medicinal liquid that could enhance qi training rate for Lin Qi. Finally, he found a jar of pitch-black ointment for Lin Qi. He solemnly warn Lin Qi, it was a kind of extremely rare legendary healing potion. No matter if it was bone fractures or flesh wounds, as long as they were smeared with the ointment, they would recover in the shortest amount of time.
Lin Qi carefully kept these legendary potions that were worth tens of thousands, wrapping them into a bundle using a huge piece of cloth to be carried on his shoulder.
Looking at Lin Qi’s appearance that was like that of a little thief at night, Blackbeard couldn’t help but grin. He shook his head and brought Lin Qi into the second small-sized secret warehouse. Here, Blackbeard didn’t give Lin Qi anything. He merely selected an anklet, letting Lin Qi wear it around his ankle.
It was an extremely elaborate green anklet as thin as a bean sprout. It was unknown what metal the anklet was made of, while it was much lighter compare to a feather. Lin Qi wrinkled his brows as he wore the anklet around his left ankle and couldn’t help but grimace while looking at Blackbeard.
“I am a man!” Lin Qi indignantly looked at Blackbeard. Which man wore an anklet?
“You’re not a man, I am a true man!” Blackbeard glanced at Lin Qi in disdain and said with ridicule, “A cucumber that never even touch a woman also dare to say he is a man? Drip your blood on it!”
Lin Qi couldn’t raise his head from Blackbeard’s attack. He sullenly bit his finger, dripping his blood on the anklet. The thin and elaborate anklet flashed with a faint green light before abruptly entering Lin Qi’s ankle. Only a thread of extremely thin, nearly indiscernible green mark was left on his skin while Lin Qi faintly felt that there was something on his ankle that was linked with his mind.
“It is a space magic device, can fit as many things as one can fit a chariot.” Blackbeard raised his eyebrows and said with a grin, “What’s more wonderful is the fact that it is an anklet, no one will expect such a precious space magic device to be hidden on the foot, with valuable things stored inside, very safe!”
Lin Qi was rightly astounded. He carefully collected several medicine bottles next to his foot. Sure enough, following a flash of light, the several medicine bottles disappeared without a trace. Lin Qi could faintly feel that inside the anklet round his left foot, there appeared to be several additional things.
“Indeed not bad!” Lin Qi said with a smile, “No one will take off my boots to check if there are things on my foot.”
Blackbeard said with a frown, “It’s a pity that your feet don’t smell, otherwise it will be even safer! Hahaha!”
After making fun of Lin Qi, Blackbeard grabbed Lin Qi who was sneakily gazing at the huge number of magic devices in the secret warehouse and forcefully dragged him out. “Don’t even think about these things here, they are the family’s strategic reserve, unless the family faced a life and death crisis, you can’t easily use the magic devices here.”
Severely warning Lin Qi, Blackbeard dragged Lin Qi into the last secret warehouse.
Here, a huge number of weapons, armors and other things forged by ancestor level blacksmiths and magicians were piled up. Lin Qi’s eyes shone as they swept over these glittering weapons before conveniently grasped a heavy and huge battle-ax. Its appearance was simple, its surface like a full moon while a cow horn protruded on its tip, emitting particularly eerie and desolate cold air. Several inscriptions on the ax faintly flashed, it was a magic weapon!
Blackbeard grinned widely. “A man should use this kind of big guy! Oh, choose several more, those brothers of yours, bring some for them.”
Lin Qi unceremoniously chose a sharp sword that was added with tearing and wind enchantment, it was for Enzo.
A dagger added with tearing enchantment and potent poison, a pair of boots made of Wind Fox skin that could accelerate one’s running speed by half and let one noiselessly fell on the ground, they were for Wei Ke.
A gorgeous fencing foil added with dazzling light and bewitching enchantment, it was for the playboy, Yu Lian.
Lin Qi himself, other than the huge ax, he also chose a light, close-fitting, flexible armor to be worn on his body. The flexible armor was made of the skin of a high level magic beast, the Poisonous Dragon Lizard. It was as thin as a butterfly wing and incomparably light, yet possessing an extremely good physical and magical defense.
After storing all the equipments into the anklet, Lin Qi clapped in excitement.
“Enough, at least for now, it’s enough.”
