Feeling the killing intent of the Ancient Sawtooth Squid, Li Xiaonian was very nervous, but he still said with a serious face, “If you don’t trust me, we can sign an equal contract.”
“An equal contract!”
The Ancient Sawtooth Squid was furious in an instant, his long tentacles darted out and wrapped up Li Xiaonian tightly, and it said in an icy voice, “Ant, how dare you talk about ‘equal’ with the noble king? Believe it or not, I can easily crush you to pieces now!”
Then its tentacles tightened.
Li Xiaonian’s bones were all broken, and even if he only felt 20% of the pain, it was still very painful.
At the same time, the Ancient Sawtooth Squid said coldly, “Since you know the equal contract, you should also know the slave contract. Let’s sign a slave contract, and I’ll be the master and you the slave. Is there a problem?!”
Li Xiaonian said firmly, “Then you’d better just kill me. Anyway, I am a Mutant. Even if I die, I will be reborn, losing at most part of my potential.”
In his previous life, many players encountered bosses with super high intelligence. They thought signing a slave contract with them would be no big deal, with the dream that they could ride on those bosses’ coattails. However, slaves were slaves. In the end, 99% of these players had to delete their accounts.
The Ancient Sawtooth Squid flew into a rage, bared its sharp teeth and almost swallowed Li Xiaonian in one bite, but in the end, instead of continuing to abuse him, it stretched out its tentacles to search Li Xiaonian for the so-called space treasure.
The Shadow was stored in the package and was a non-droppable item. Under normal circumstances, it couldn’t be found.
“Ant, you have no secret treasure on you! How dare you lie to me? Go to hell!”
The tentacles of the Ancient Sawtooth Squid twined harder around Li Xiaonian and seemed to try to constrict him to death.
Unfortunately, Li Xiaonian remained unmoved and said calmly, “The secret treasure is called ‘secret’ because it can’t be easily taken away by others. I can swear to [Sky Eye] that there is definitely a secret treasure on me, which has enough space to contain you.”
Under the gaze of the Ancient Sawtooth Squid, Li Xiaonian could only click on the system and sign a guarantee agreement to prove that he didn’t lie.
Ancient Sawtooth Squid’s anger easy came, easy went. “Fine, I’ll just sign an equal contract with you.” it said.
The Ancient Sawtooth Squid stretched out its tentacles and drew a special rune on the ground. Then it squeezed out a drop of blood and smeared it on the center of the rune.
System: “Squid King (Ancient Sawtooth Squid) wants to sign a primary equal contract with you. Do you agree or not? Yes/No, (Note: Under this contract, the two parties are in an equal position and cannot harm each other, and if one party dies, the other party will suffer serious punishment.)
Contracts were divided into primary, intermediate, and advanced levels. The higher the level, the greater the effect of the contract, and under the highest-level contract, contracting parties could even share special abilities.
Li Xiaonian and Squid King didn’t trust each other, so they just signed a primary equal contract.
Li Xiaonian squeezed a drop of blood from his own fingers and dripped it on the rune.
The next second, a ray of light enveloped the man and the beast, forming a Tai Chi pattern.
System: “The equal contract was successfully signed.”
Li Xiaonian immediately checked the Squid King’s attributes.
[Ancient Sawtooth Squid]
A super leader, a combination of squid and shark, has flexible tentacles and sharp teeth.
Health Point: 1010000/1010000;
Mental Power: 6584/6584;
Attack Power: 201;
Physical Defense: 220;
Five Elements Defense: 20;
[Bloodthirsty]: An active skill, wrapping around and absorbing the target with its tentacles, sucking the target’s HP to recover its own HP.
[Swallow]: Swallow corpses to restore mental power.
[Flashing]: Consume a lot of mental power to teleport for a short distance.
[Poisonous Mist]: Consumes the venom in the body and sprays a cloud of poisonous mist. Within the range of the poisonous mist, it’ll cause 300 damages to the target every second for 30 seconds;
The Squid King’s health points and four skill attributes shocked Li Xiaonian.
Holy cow, the monster with the prefix ‘Ancient’ was really something. And it was only level 10! Even a level-40 boss wouldn’t be able to resist this Squid King.
With more than one million health points, plus four powerful skills, it was almost invincible. With its attributes, it might be able to easily wipe out the entire Skyfire Base.
“Ant, we’ve signed a contract. Now quickly take me out of this place.” The Squid King stared at Li Xiaonian and threatened fiercely, “If you dare to imprison me in the storage space, I have a hundred ways to kill you!”
Having signed an equal contract, Li Xiaonian had no fear of the squid. He said awkwardly, “Master Squid King, I am only Level 5 now, and my level is too low to meet the requirements for leaving here. Please wait for some time.”
The Squid King gave a cold snort, and its tentacles went deep into the calm water pool, stirring slightly in it.
After a while, the tentacles drew out of the pool, and at the same time, densely packed low-level water monsters were adsorbed on the suckers of the tentacles.
The Squid King threw the densely-packed monsters in front of Li Xiaonian. “Hurry up, kill these low-level water monsters, and you’ll reach level 10 soon.”
Li Xiaonian was overjoyed. Just earn merits first. As for when to leave, he had the final say. Anyway, the Squid King couldn’t do anything to him now.
Li Xiaonian drank a few bottles of life potions to heal himself before he took out the Blaster Pistol and started to grind again.
Bang bang bang…
Now he was already level 5, and most of the fish monsters here were only around level 6 or 7, so he could grind much faster.
System: “You successfully killed [Black Swordfish], merit +2;”
System: “You successfully killed [Advanced Electric Eel], merit +5;”
System: “You successfully killed [Giant Salamander], merit +2;”
Li Xiaonian thought that he was very efficient, but the Squid King who was standing on the side watching couldn’t stand it anymore. “An ant is an ant. Not only are your attacks simplistic, but you’re also shamefully weak.”
As he said, the Squid King spat out a rusty long knife. “Use this weapon of mine. Remember it’s only lent to you temporarily.”
[God Slaying Broadsword]
Grade: lv5 Divine Weapon (very badly damaged);
Requirements for Use: none;
Attack Power: 36~48 (normal: 108~199)
Strength +20; Dexterity +20;
God Slaying: A passive skill. If the target’s level is higher than the user’s, every level higher, the damage increases by 10%, up to 5000%;
Armor Penetration: Remove 50% of the target’s defense.
Crit: Normal attack has a 20% chance of a crit, causing double damage to the target.
When Li Xiaonian saw the weapon attributes, his mouth was literally watering. “Master Squid King, considering what you’re capable of, this kind of junk weapon is not much use to you, right? How about… giving it to me as a reward for taking you out of trouble?”
The Squid King instantly flew into a rage. “This is MY weapon. It’s precisely because of it that I can be invincible. Although it’s damaged, I’ll fix it sooner or later. If you don’t want to use it, give it back now.”
“No, I need it.”
Li Xiaonian held the God Slaying Broadsword, cut horizontally and slashed vertically at those densely-packed struggling fish monsters, solving a fish monster without any resistance with only three slashes.
With the Divine Weapon in hand, his speed of earning merits suddenly soared five or six times.
After killing this wave of fish monsters, the Squid King continued to serve as a coolie and fish large quantities of water creatures for Li Xiaonian.
Forty minutes later, the merits Li Xiaonian had accumulated had reached a terrifying number, 12,850 points, plus various kinds of materials.
12850 points of merit were enough for him to level up to 10 and raise his skills by one or two levels.
Just when Li Xiaonian was slaughtering the monsters,
System: A new message for you.
Tianyu: “I’ve already met Gu Tong. Besides the gold crystal, is there anything else we can bring for you?”
Reading Tianyu’s message, Li Xiaonian hurriedly replied, “Don’t come back for now. A big boss suddenly appeared here. It stayed sleeping in the cave. I didn’t dare to move. Don’t come back until I tell you it is safe here.”
If Gutong and Tianyu came back now, in addition to affecting him grinding, judging from the attitude of the Squid King towards “ants”, it might slap them to death for no reason.
Tianyu: “You’re really ‘lucky’. Be careful.”
After closing the chat window, Li Xiaonian glanced at his side. At this moment, there were no monsters left, so he turned his eyes to the Squid King.
The Squid King reached out its tentacles and grabbed back the [God Slaying Broadsword], saying coldly, “You’ve slaughtered so many creatures, and the merits you earned are enough for you to reach level 10. I order you to immediately level up and take me away.”
Finally, he had a good chance to grind, but the good times passed too quickly, especially since the powerful [God Slaying Broadsword] was taken back by the Squid King. Li Xiaonin almost cried in sadness.
He hesitated and said, “Master Squid King, it’s easy for me to take you out of here, but I don’t have any self-defense weapons, and I have many enemies, well….”
“Ant, you are greedy.”
That being said, the Squid King still spat out a black heavy sniper rifle. “I don’t have any junk weapons. This iron rod is not of much use to me. I can give it to you as a reward for you to take me out of the Sealing Land. Once I successfully leave the Sealing Land, I’ll give you a better reward.”
[Sea King Sniper Rifle]
A rare energy sniper rifle.

Specification: length 2100mm, weight 20kg;
Attack Power: 95 (normal: 210)

Remaining Energy: 9% (Note: each bullet needs to consume 1% of energy, energy required: crystal stone)
“Awesome! This sniper rifle can cause such horrible damage. I’m afraid in the entire Skyfire Base, no player can resist a single energy bullet of mine.”
Li Xiaonian excitedly held the heavy sniper rifle. With this sniper rifle, what he wanted to do most now was to hide in the distance to give Lang Burang a headshot with this gun.
“Humph, I can’t believe a piece of junk makes you so happy. Pathetic.” The Squid King coldly snorted, “Come on, put me into your secret treasure and take me out of the Sealing Land.”
Li Xiaonian nodded hurriedly and reached out to touch the Squid King’s sticky tentacles. “Please don’t resist.”
The Squid King was collected into the internal storage space of the [Shadow] by Li Xiaonian.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
“Haha, now that you’ve entered my space, it’s certainly up to me when we leave.”
Now, with the boost in level and strength, he decided to complete the hidden mission before he left the Skyfire Base.
Anyway, he was idle recently. He planned to take the opportunity to make some trouble for the Wolf Walk Guild and see if he could plunder some wealth.
After all, he was extremely short of money now, and the Wolf Walk Guild was a good target.
