Versatile Mage - Chapter 2270
Chapter 2270: 2270
Mo Fan was about to get rich!
Even a professional like Zhu Li could only get rid of the impurities of the Lightning Pentagons by releasing their energies in a huge furnace.
However, these seemingly uncontrollable energies were like delicacies to Little Loach ever since it had evolved into a dark golden loach.
Little Loach’s appetite and food choices had expanded greatly!
It had only fancied Cultivation Tools and rare energy resources in the past, but it was now willing to feed on many kinds of resources after its appetite improved!
Mo Fan initially thought he would only find a limited number of the Lightning Pentagons on the Sun-Gathering Peak. It would be nowhere enough to feed Little Loach.
However, he now had all the impurities of the Lightning Pentagons Mine to himself. The amount of wasted crystals was absolutely insane since a national company was excavating the mine!
Even though they had refined the essence in the ores to produce Cultivation Tools, leaving only residual energies in the waste rocks, the amount was simply stunning!
It was similar to spent batteries. The energy inside those depleted batteries could no longer support the functioning of electrical appliances, but they still had a small amount of energy in them.
A few spent batteries might be useless, but the combined energy from a hundred tons of waste batteries was equivalent to a small generator!
The Lightning Pentagons Mine was providing countries and federations with countless Cultivation Tools, which were shared between millions of people.
However, Mo Fan was claiming all the waste from the process for himself!
“How are you going to do it?” Zhu Li looked at Mo Fan. She was waiting to see Mo Fan perform his magic trick.
To think that he was able to absorb the residual energy inside the waste rocks…
If they had the same capability and technology, they could easily manufacture the junk rocks into other products. Why would they bother searching for gold in a junkyard?
Zhu Li was extremely curious about what Mo Fan was planning to do with the tailings.
“Is it fine if I absorb them all?” Mo Fan asked, not answering directly.
The khaki-clad soldiers were still following them around. Mo Fan was worried that they might arrest him for stealing their country’s resources.
“It’s fine, I’ve already spoken to them,” Zhu Li assured him.
Mo Fan nodded eagerly, and headed closer to the waste piles.
The tailings had piled up into hills of crushed stone.
The residual energy in the waste rocks was still dangerous. They would still emit lightning flashes randomly, so it was impossible to transport them without special care.
The trucks could only transport the raw material through the Space Rift once in a while, so the tailings kept increasing, as they were unable to clear them in time.
Mo Fan jumped onto a pile of tailings. He could feel his feet going numb, even though he was wearing a pair of sturdy boots. It was obvious that the waste rocks still contained unstable energy.
Mo Fan did not mind that Zhu Meng and Zhu Li were watching him closely, since they could not see how Little Loach was absorbing the energy in the mine tailings. He just needed to put up an act with his Lightning Magic to deceive them.
Little Loach had long lost its patience. It immediately spat out the Nether River as it trembled in excitement.
It took Mo Fan by surprise. Since when did Little Loach turn into a water-spitting serpent? The Nether River rapidly encircled the wasteyard like a tornado.
Mo Fan quickly turned around to see Zhu Li, Zhu Meng, and the soldiers’ reactions.
Thank the Heavens, they could not see Little Loach’s remarkable power. It seemed like only Little Loach’s master, whose soul it was bound to, was able to see the spectacular sight!
The others were unable to see the process of Little Loach absorbing Soul Essences and Soul Remnants, even if they had a Soul Container!
As the Nether River flowed across the yard, glowing purple dots flew toward it like fireflies being Summoned. They followed the Nether River’s flow and streamed toward the Little Loach Pendant thickly.
Mo Fan stood there and pretended like he was controlling the flow of the energy.
The truth was, he was not doing anything at all; Little Loach was fully in charge. It did not require its master’s involvement in the process.
Mo Fan was thinking whether he should spread his arms like he was absorbing nature’s energy, but it might make him look like a retard.
Zhu Meng and Zhu Li were watching him from not far away.
The truth was, he already looked like a retard in their eyes. From their perspective, Mo Fan was merely standing there calf-deep in a pile of tailings.
It would not feel too awkward if Mo Fan was standing on an altar or a peak, but he was standing on top of a pile of crushed and useless rocks!
Perhaps it felt like he was sitting on an iron throne as the king of scavengers…
“Is it done?” Zhu Li asked after she saw Mo Fan making his way down the pile of tailings a few minutes later.
Mo Fan was a little unsatisfied when he heard Zhu Li’s skeptical tone, but the truth was, he was indeed done absorbing the energy of the tailings.
Little Loach always had the habit of finishing its meals quickly!
“Mm, I’m done,” Mo Fan nodded with a faint smile.
When a person won the jackpot, they would not be overwhelmed with joy right away.
They would withhold their excitement and confirm they were indeed the winner first, then dance in joy when there was no one around.
Mo Fan was in a similar state.
Be calm, he could laugh all he wanted when he went back!
“I thought you were going to establish a Magic Formation or something,” Zhu Li said in disappointment.
“Zhu Meng, let’s head back, we still have a lot of work to do in the Aorus Sacred Institute,” Mo Fan proposed.
“Oh, you’re right,” Zhu Meng nodded.
Zhu Li was still confused, and stepped closer to the tailings. She still had a feeling that Mo Fan had failed to absorb the energy inside them.
No one could possibly absorb the unstable Lightning Energy in the waste rocks just by standing on them, unless he was Magneto!
However, she noticed something unusual as she drew closer to the pile of tailings.
Normally, she would feel a faint electric field from the waste rocks, which would inflict a numbing sensation on her. If she was carrying something metallic, she would feel a sharp shock from it.
But she did not feel anything this time. Everything was oddly stable.
There was just a pile of ordinary rocks in front of her. She did not feel the slightest sense of danger!
Did he really absorb the energy inside the waste rocks?
Did he seriously get rid of the dangerous residue energy of such a huge pile of tailings in a few minutes?
Zhu Li turned around and stared at Mo Fan.
Mo Fan was walking at a light pace, like a primary school kid hopping his way out of the school’s entrance on the last day of school before the summer holiday.
“How did he do it?” Zhu Li gaped.
The place might be full of scrap, but according to the Principles of Magic Energy, the residual energy the tailings contained was enough to form a wild thunderstorm a few dozen kilometers across, which would last for at least ten hours!
Where had Mo Fan stored all the Lightning Energy?
What kind of thing could possibly contain such an enormous amount of unstable energy?
How shocking would it be if he released or absorbed all the energy at once?
“By the way, you said you were going to give me a few Lightning Pentagons. Don’t you forget it,” Mo Fan called back to remind Zhu Li.
It was like he was not forgetting to take away a cone of ice cream after he was done enjoying a buffet!
