Chapter 443: A Sly Trick
Translator: Exodus Tales Editor: Exodus Tales
When Lingling arrived, she used her identity as a Hunter Master and asked the police to seal the area while keeping a low profile.
Mo Fan had told the school what happened, but the school was unable to provide any assistance, unless Mo Fan was able to find the vampire…
As Mo Fan and Zhao Manting left the crime scene, a man in a black coat who had been watching them from afar uttered a hollow laugh.
“See that, you’re of little importance. These noble Magicians wouldn’t shed a single tear for someone petty like you. They even handed the case to the police, not daring to notify the Hunter Union, as they were afraid of damaging their reputation since they failed to protect you,” said the man, who altered the pace of his speech continuously.
His coat was loose, as he was actually holding a slim girl inside it. The girl’s mouth was muffled, and her body could not move because of some strange power.
Her eyes were wide. She had witnessed how Mo Fan and Zhao Manting reacted when they saw her corpse, so she was not willing to believe the vampire’s bullshit.
She was extremely furious.
Mo Fan and Zhao Manting thought she had died in the woods, since the corpse was right there…
However, she was still alive, and was being held by the detestable vampire!
What did Mo Fan and Zhao Manting see then?
It was her sister!
This vampire had stolen her sister’s corpse, and was well preserved even though it had been three months since she died. God knows what he had in mind, to preserve her sister’s corpse!
Most wickedly, the vampire had used her sister’s corpse to trick Mo Fan and Zhao Manting!
They had tried so hard to protect her even though they were not obliged to. When she recalled their reactions after seeing her corpse, she felt the urge to fight the vampire at all costs…
“Just give up, they will soon forget you completely, and you’ll know how fond I am of you,” Nie Dong said with a weird chuckle.
The chuckle was absolutely irritating to Liu Ru’s ear, but she could not do anything. She was too weak, and could only watch it all happen.
“Does it feel like you’re free now? You must have felt unsettled lately, to miss me so much. Isn’t it a relief that you’re back in my hands?” Nie Dong continued to tease Liu Ru.
Liu Ru’s eyes were filled with tears, yet she was still holding onto the same persistence, “You’re too full of yourself. You’re just like a filthy spirit that kept on disturbing me, that I didn’t even bother treating seriously.”
“How about now? HAHAHAHA, I won’t allow anyone to ignore me! It’s fine, we have lots of time to slowly understand one another… oh, don’t put your hope in death; for our Blood Tribe, death is considered a rebirth!” Nie Dong laughed wildly.
Liu Ru fell silent. She suddenly remembered the ability vampires had to transform humans into their people from the books they had found.
Liu Ru had a feeling that the guy was planning to turn her into a vampire, too!
“Humans are too short-lived, after all. We Blood Tribe are always patient, as our life spans is the same as the world. I don’t mind that you hate me now, but after spending a few years, ten years, or even hundreds of years together, you will realize that your hatred now is just a quarrel,” Nie Dong told her patronizingly.
Liu Ru was unyielding and surprisingly brave, as if the shock from her sister’s death had significantly surpassed her fear. She was fairly stubborn, but if she ended up turning into the thing that she hated the most, she would definitely have a mental breakdown.
The Blood Tribe needed new blood. Once she was turned into one of them, and sent after the two Magicians who were protecting her, Nie Dong thought their expressions would be very amusing!
Those who opposed the Blood Tribe would always find themselves to be the ones falling apart!
Back at the apartment, Zhao Manting told Mo Fan everything in detail.
Zhao Manting knew the capabilities of a vampire, thus he was protecting Liu Ru the same as usual, including bringing her to his classes.
To his surprise, there were two vampires; one lured him away, and the other kidnapped Liu Ru when he lost focus.
Just to be sure, Zhao Manting ordered his attendant to wait outside of the school, so it was impossible for the vampire to transport Liu Ru out of the school, as his attendant was a strong Magician…
To his surprise, the vampire straight away sucked Liu Ru’s blood dry in the woods. The process did not even last a few minutes. Zhao Manting quickly found her location through the tracker on her, yet all that was left was an icy corpse.
“Just a few minutes?” asked Mo Fan sternly.
“Yeah, when I saw her like that, I called you instantly,” said Zhao Manting.
“We didn’t expect there to be two…”
The books mentioned that vampires who were living among humans would usually belong to a family. Being in a family did not mean they were related by blood, but they were all turned into vampires by the same powerful senior and lived in a specific area in the city. The senior would establish rules for them to follow, and teach them how to live among humans and feed themselves while protecting their territory from the invasion of other vampires.
Mo Fan had found a helper, and the cunning vampire did the same, too. Things were getting more complicated.
“I don’t understand, they could easily team up and kill me. If they were trying to murder me, I might be able to drag the fight out until my attendant arrived…” said Zhao Manting.
“They did not target us because we are Magicians. The death of a Magician would immediately alert the Hunter Union and the Magic Court. They still want to keep their disguises so they can continue living in the city. Killing us would burn their own boat,” said Mo Fan.
“Mm, I just feel sorry for Liu Ru, to see such a good girl turn into an icy corpse…” said Zhao Manting with self-reproof.
“Icy?” asked Lingling suddenly.
“Yeah, her blood had dried, so her body had lost its heat. The corpse was cold as ice when I tried to feel her pulse,” said Zhao Manting.
“What is it?” asked Mo Fan, confused at Liling’s expression.
Lingling frowned as she fell into deep thought…
