Chapter 865 – A glimmer of hope (6)
“In fact, this is actually a crystal stone’s source stone . “ Su Luo shook her head slowly, her expression carrying a trace of astonishment, “If it weren’t for the zealousness the little divine dragon displayed, before this, I really hadn’t taken notice of it . “
“A crystal stone’s source stone?” Zi Yan, having heard what was said, was startled . Afterwards, she carefully sized up that stone, “I’ve seen a crystal stone’s source stone before, but this doesn’t look like it . ”
“So that’s to say, this is an even higher grade, sealed source stone . ” There was a trace of graveness in Su Luo’s expression, “Reportedly, what’s sealed inside isn’t a crystal stone, but something else . ”
“Eh?” Zi Yan found it hard to believe . She hadn’t even heard of something like it before .
“Therefore, let’s take a look, in the end, what would appear from inside of it . ” Su Luo stooped to crouch down in front of that sealed stone that was over fifty kilograms in weight .
Su Luo raised her head and was all smiles as she looked at Zi Yan, waving her palm: “This hand of mine is the famous Little Black Hand, are you certain you want me to break it open? At that time, when a hideous messy thing comes out, you better not blame me . ”
“Little Black Hand (1)? Isn’t this hand of yours the famous Little Red Hand (2)?” Zi Yan firmly did not believe it .
“Who did you hear that from . ”
To ask unintentionally versus to ask with intent . A trace of unnaturalness flashed across Zi Yan’s complexion . She compelled herself to act normal: “If your luck was bad, how could you have paid your respects under Grandmaster Rong Yun’s door?”
Hearing that, Su Luo thought for a bit and also felt that this was right .
That matter of her becoming a formal disciple, was all carried out in public . The twists and turns of the road with many crooks and bends . In the end, she really did manage to pay her respects to him .
This matter had been spread extremely wide . It wasn’t difficult for Zi Yan to also know it .
“Then alright, I open it, then I’ll open it . ” An excited radiance flashed across Su Luo’s eyes .
She had never opened a sealed source stone before .
Su Luo took out that “Yan Hua” dagger and took the sealed source stone’s measure in front of it .
Zi Yan nervously crouched on the other side and unblinkingly watched the sealed stone, afraid to miss a little bit of news .
After Su Luo finished taking its measure to find a position, holding her breath with rapt attention, she raised her hand and brought the blade down .
The dagger directly cut down .
A piece of shining white stone fell to the floor .
“Nothing . ” Zi Yan said in disappointment .
Su Luo’s expression was still as calm as water . She raised the dagger and sliced down once again .
“There’s still nothing . ” Zi Yan spread out both hands .
Su Luo’s expression carried an even more bit of graveness .
Because in the wake of having sliced off two pieces of waste material, it was now already getting closer and closer to the core .
Starting from now, every cut had to be done gently and cautiously . There could not be a little bit of a mistake .
The dagger then peeled with three consecutive cuts .
In a blink of an eye, only one third of the original size of that huge, sealed source stone remained .
Just at this time, a strong scent came out from inside the source stone .
“As expected, there is something!” Zi Yan’s eyes suddenly lit up . She urged Su Luo, “Quickly, quickly, quickly . ”
“I can’t hurry it up anymore . ” At this moment, Su Luo’s forehead was already covered in a layer of fine beaded sweat . Her pair of eyes was as bright as stars, as she concentrated all her attention on that rock .
The final cut…
Su Luo took a deep breath, then she opened her eyes again . Her eyes were a sheet of pure cold and quiet .
Just at this moment, the dagger in Su Luo’s hands cut horizontally across .
“Slide——” A sound rang .
The two thumbs thick of source stone was evenly sliced across .
The cut was tidy .
Like slicing tofu .
A happy expression flashed through Zi Yan’s eyes . Not waiting for Su Luo to speak, she grabbed and tore open the stone that was cut: “I really want to see, just what exactly is concealed inside this sealed source stone . ”
The source stone was torn open and a cavity appeared in it .
And inside the cavity, a blue, fat and plump living creature was laying there .
One could only see its pair of eyes were tightly closed, and its two chubby little hands, clenched into fists, were placed on its own chest .
1) Little Black Hand… very bad luck,
2) Little Red Hand… very lucky .
