Chapter 234: Lesser Orcs
From all aspects, it sounds like this one has experienced it himself.
Otherwise, how could he say it so matter-of-factly?
And he described it so sorrowfully, so empathically.
While the giant kobold was immersed in the tender memories of the past, Cardinal Monn reached out his hand and stroked the kobold’s tail.
Then he saw the furs on the big fluffy tail that he had just stroked.
Instantly, they all stick up, made the tail look like a fairy stick.
It was absolutely adorable.
“You should have vomited blood. Most of the blood affected by the abyss should also have been vomited out. Why don’t we discuss our matters?”
Monn was like the wolf who had abducted Little Red Riding Hood to pick flowers.
His two eyes stared at the kobold, whose tail was swaying habitually.
His eyeballs followed the direction the kobold’s tail was wagging.
The kobold curled his body and saw that Monn was staring at his tail like a filthy idiot.
Monn looked like he was almost drooling.
The kobold really didn’t know how this person became a cardinal.
A guy who couldn’t even walk when he saw furs.
Thinking back to before, I was really stupid.
How could he lose his divine position so simply because of this guy’s scheme?
If he knew this was this person’s weakness.
He would just have to transform into his complete beast form.
And this person would surely be still drooling and staring at his fur while his attack hit.
Just thinking about it make him felt unworthy of all of his past sufferings.
“You know that I am a bishop. Naturally, I put the people in the world first. Look at how pitiful you look now. How can I bear to do that? So, do you want to consider being my… pet… um, no, my partner?”
Monn was so excited that he almost blurted out the truth.
Fortunately, he changed his words in time.
You sly thing, don’t think that I would ignore that word pet just because you changed your word so fast.
The giant kobold felt wronged and curled his body up even more.
However, even though his body had shrunk drastically, his body was still more than five meters long. No matter how small he curled himself into, he still looked like a very big lump.
“Don’t make it sound so nice. I won’t believe a word of it. You, humans, are all evil.”
The giant kobold looked frustrated and showed his rejection to communicate and desire for Monn to leave him alone to die.
Cardinal Monn was frustrated at kobold’s submissiveness, but at the same time, he felt sorry for this cute furry creature. He would soon become a pile of dead meat without a soul.
In the end, it would become a lethal and heavy corpse in this space-time turbulence.
No matter what, this giant kobold had just told him some incredible news.
Just for this, he couldn’t just let this kobold die like this.
Otherwise, he would really be indeed a very evil human.
Monn once again turned on the 9-to-5 clock system.
He found the system store with ease.
He quickly browsed through it, trying to find something that could save the life of the giant kobold.
To fight with the demons of the Abyss over kobold’s life.
He didn’t know if he could succeed.
He had to make sure he would not lose his own life without even saving this giant fluffy.
The blood of the frozen prophet of the devouring power.
Monn’s gaze fell on this rare level of blood, and he couldn’t take his eyes off it for a long time.
This item, whether it was its attributes or abilities, all matched this giant kobold.
But the price was really expensive.
One had to know that he would only get 1 point after signing in once, and 3 points on festivals.
Adding up the points from the quests he had completed, he had 2,831 points left after buying the windstorm battle boots.
A bottle of frozen prophet’s blood that was the size of a small wine cup was only worth 2,713 points, which almost emptied him out.
Oh, he even left himself 22 points in pocket.
No matter how he thought about it, his heart ached.
“I have a very precious blood that can let you live. But you have to sign an equal contract with me and follow me. Otherwise, I’ll just watch you die like this. Don’t worry, if you die, I’ll definitely collect your corpse and make it into a specimen. I’ll take good care of your fur.”
As Monn spoke, he suddenly felt that this proposal was very smart.
It also saved a lot of points.
Points were good things.
Not only could they buy all sorts of things, but they could also save one’s life at critical moments.
Points were something that was extremely difficult to earn and could be spent quickly.
“It’s up to you. Since I’m already dead, I don’t know what you’ll do to my corpse. You won’t be able to get out anyways. It’s not bad for both of us to die here.”
The giant kobold raised his head and glanced at Monn. A dead pig was not afraid of boiling water.
The main reason why Monn wanted him to sign a contract with him was probably because he wanted to rub his fur.
Looking at the way Monn looked at his fur, it seemed like he wanted to pounce on him.
Did Monn really think that he couldn’t see it?
“You really have no ambition.”
Monn was very dissatisfied with the giant kobold’s reaction.
“Monsters like us with animal heads and human bodies, those with ambition would have died long ago. Those who are alive, the longer they live, the less ambitious they are.”
The giant kobold sneered as he spoke of the cruel reality that no one could see.
In the eyes of humans, regardless of whether it was the kobold, pig-headed, or other animal heads with a human body.
They were all members of the orc clan.
However, humans did not know that the existence of these animal heads with human bodies was the lowest status among the beastmen clan.
Even the slaves bought from humans lived more dignified lives than them.
Some humans who had a partner were ostracized and disgusted by them.
Because of this reason, the orcs had this clear rule.
Those with animal heads and human bodies were inferior orcs.
Such orcs could not touch human slaves.
Not only were they afraid that they would steal the breeding rights of human slaves, but they were also afraid that they would frighten the human slaves.
After all, the main task of human slaves in the orc tribe was to mate with orcs who could not take human forms and give birth to children.
If they saw such orcs, the animal heads with human bodies.
To accept a beast as a mate was already challenging the limits of human acceptance.
After knowing that the child he gave birth to might be such a thing that was neither human nor beast.
Humans would have long fallen apart.
Monn looked at the giant kobold with a complicated expression.
What he had been planning before, after hearing the giant kobold’s helplessness towards the orcs’ current situation and his resentment towards injustice.
Even if he had to pay the price and exchange with the existences of the abyss, he still wanted to become stronger.
To resist the darkness and cruelty of the orcs.
Monn was even more determined now.
Compared to the giant kobolds who are constantly fighting against oppression and injury.
His life is really too peaceful.
Maybe this is the turning point.
It is time for him to change his life.
He can’t always live like this.
