Luo Chen ignored the old man and focused on the woman.
“Do you need my help to choose an egg?”
‘Why would I care about an old man when such a beautiful woman is in front of me?’
Luo Chen was just a typical lecherous man.
“He doesn’t seem to be a professional at all!”
The old man knew that it would take years for one to learn about pet eggs. He interrupted again, “This brat only knows how to gloat.”
“Let me prove myself! I’ll find you a saint-grade pet egg!”
After saying that, Luo Chen began to investigate the eggs.
The woman hesitated. Naturally, she had no reason to trust him. She bit her lips and said suspiciously, “Why should I believe you? There are limited pages in the summoning scripture. I have to be careful!”
“It’s up to you. Taking risks is necessary.”
Luo Chen tried to persuade her.
The woman’s sixth sense was tingling. She decided to go with her instinct.
Luo Chen was stunned. He did not expect her to actually believe him. After all, he was just a stranger.
“You’re willing to trust me?”
“It’s just my gut feeling!”
The woman said casually.
“Women are so weird. Anyway, you’re very lucky. You’ve made a wise decision.”
The woman sat in front of the pet egg that Luo Chen had handed to her and took a deep breath. She did not know what pet would hatch out from it. Her heart was beating rapidly.
‘Could this really be a saint-grade pet?’
The old man rushed over. He pointed at the pet egg and said, “Based on my experience, this is definitely not a saint-grade pet egg. This beast would most likely have a thunder attribute because the eggshell is purple in color. Also, the egg is not heavy. It should be a flying type. The possibility of it being a woodpecker is very high since the eggshell is very hard. Only woodpeckers can break through such eggshells and they are not categorized as saint pets!”
He was very confident in his deduction.
Once again, the woman became hesitant.
“The old man is wrong. Do you have proof that only woodpeckers can break through this type of eggshell?”
Luo Chen decided to pick a fight because his massive ego was hurt.
“Young man, you need to learn some respect. Other birds that can break through such a hard eggshell are eagles. However, an eagle’s egg is big and this egg is small.”
The old man’s tone was full of disdain.
“You’re a fool! Are all eggs laid by chickens the same size? Will they all have the same shape? Do they all have the same quality?”
Luo Chen snapped.
“Of course there are differences but in terms of probability, it’s more likely that this egg won’t hatch out a saint-grade pet!”
“Pfft. Nothing is absolute in this world. Some beasts laid their eggs earlier than others. There are definitely cases where the eggs have huge differences. It also depends on their diet. This is normal, okay?”
“Why don’t we make a bet? You can wager that pet in your arms!”
“I was wondering why you kept going against me. It turns out that this was your goal all along. Your eyes are really sharp. Sure, I’ll accept your challenge. So, what are you betting?”
Luo Chen said pompously.
“You’re really nothing but a rude brat! Let me ask you, do you recognize this blade?”
The old man placed a short blade on the table.
After searching through the teachers’ knowledge that he had basically stolen, Luo Chen found out about the origin of the blade.
“A summoner is not limited to forming bonds and contracts with living beings. As long as there is a soul, even an object can be contracted. There’s a soul in this blade, right?”
Weapons with souls were very rare. There were only about a hundred of them in total. They were known as soul weapons. The level of the soul weapon was determined by the owner. It was a form of alchemy equipment.
Moreover, soul weapons had hidden abilities that other regular alchemy equipments do not. Therefore, they were highly sought after.
“This weapon’s value is equal to a divine pet. I don’t believe that you’re willing to wager it.”
Luo Chen was filled with doubt.
“Hahaha! Alright, I’ll tell you the truth! This soul weapon is real, but it was damaged in a battle. If you want to use or make a profit out of it, you’ll need to find a way to repair it.”
The old man did not mind that his true intentions were seen through.
‘This is great.’
Luo Chen thought to himself.
It would not be easy to repair the soul weapon. Otherwise, the old man would have never wagered it.
‘His plan is about to fail. The golden page in my summoning scripture could restore Xiao Mei even when she was terribly injured. It should also work on the soul weapon.’
Luo Chen tried to contain his joy.
Then, he turned to the woman and asked, “Are you still going to form a bond with the pet in this egg?”
