After reverting to neutral stance, she continued to chirp and shriek. Jiang Fei squatted down and looked at her, trying his best, but failing to understand the little Ant Queen.

“Hey dummy! Didn’t you just pick up that thing? The thingamajig that allows you to communicate with beast?” said Isabella.

“Oh! You’re a genius, Isabella!”

When he had obtained the Soul of the Beasts, he thought it was nothing but a toy and put it behind him. He immediately opened his inventory and used the Soul of the Beast.

In a flash, the chirp and shriek of the Ant Queen could be understood.

“Mercy! Oh please have mercy! Don’t kill me! Don’t kill me…”

“Heh.” Jiang Fei smirked.

“You want your life? Fine. Give me something of equal value!”

Jiang Fei was a master of blackmailing NPCs.

“Oh my lord… I have nothing… I have nothing left to give…” At this point, the Ant Queen started to sob. Her entire colony was massacred by Jiang Fei and Isabella. She was the only one left standing.

“What?! If nothing is what you have and I’ll turn you into nothing!” Jiang Fei roared as he lifted his hammer, trying to feint a swing.

“WAIT! My lord! I have something! I-I-I do have something to trade for my life!”

When death came knocking, even the lowest of beasts would be smart enough to save its own hide.

Jiang Fei held back and lowered his hammer.

“Speak,” Jiang Fei scoffed.

“My lord. I’m willing to trade my offsprings. They would be very useful for an adventurer such as yourself!”

The Ant Queen was basically spitballing at that point.

Jiang Fei was stunned.

“Your offsprings?”

“Yes! These!” said the Ant Queen quickly as she shook her behind. She then groaned a little and released seven to eight little ant eggs. Most of them were the size of a small tennis ball, and only one was the size of a basketball.

Worker Ant Egg (Pet Egg, Normal)
Use: Gives birth to a Normal tier Worker Ants as a Battle pet.
Level Limit: 30

Soldier Ant Egg (Pet Egg, Fine)
Use: Gives birth to a Fine tier Soldier Ant as a Battle pet.
Level Limit: 30

“Pet eggs!” Jiang Fei widened his eyes in disbelief. Never in his entire gaming career would he expect something like this to turn up. Who would have thought that a weak little Ant Queen could be a treasure trove! Never mind the Normal tier pets since Jiang Fei already had Isabella by his side. It was not for him, but for the other players in the game! It would be a huge help for normal players! Hence, even if it was only Normal tier, players would gain a valuable asset in battle.

Even though the quality of the Pet Egg produced by the Ant Queen was… mediocre at best, she had proven herself to be indispensable by producing a significant amount of eggs each time! If Jiang Fei could take her in, she would be a living money printing machine!

“My lord? If you’re still unsatisfied with this, I still have this to offer!”

Jiang Fei was momentarily quiet because of his surprise. However, the Ant Queen had mistaken his amazement for dissatisfaction. She quickly increased her offer in fear of her life! Just as Jiang Fei had enough of surprise, he was again surprised by another article of treasure!

Ant Milk (Strengthening Potion, Fine)
Effect: Removes all debuff and gains Health Point Regeneration.
Cooldown: 3 minutes!

“T-This! This is good!” Isabella suddenly jumped up.

“Is it?” Jiang Fei was oblivious to the item. Even though he could read the item description, he was unable to appraise its value. However, when Isabella jumped at the sight of the Ant Milk, it had to be something good.

“Dummy. I guess you have your limits as a human. Ant Milk might have a weak regenerative effect, but its main purpose is not healing. It is to remove all debuffs! Be it magic, curse, disease, or even God’s Judgement, it could remove them all! Back then, if I had a bottle of this, I would not have been in this situation!” said Isabella as she rolled her eyes.

“Woah. That powerful?”

After listening to Isabella’s explanation, Jiang Fei realizes the importance of this bottle of Ant Milk. The idea he had was not to use the Ant Milk in the game but to bring it to the real world!

In reality, the usage of the Ant Milk would be even more extensive than a simple Recovery Potion. Recovery Potion would be something that would heal injuries. But it fell short when it came to curing diseases! Even a simple flu virus could never be cured with Recovery Potion. Herein lay the epicness of the Ant Milk. It could be compared to the miraculous Spirit Pill in Xianxia stories! From simple fever to deadly diseases like AIDS could be cured in an instant with the Ant Milk! A real-life All-Cure Potion!

“Jiang Fei! Listen to yourself for once! You must never allow yourself to reveal this secret!” Jiang Fei thought to himself. He had learned his lesson. Back then, because of his kindness, he had rescued Han Tianyu and Chen Kaiyin and got himself in a mess with the Zhang Family. Hence, with that lesson in mind, he swore to himself never to let anyone know about the Ant Milk.

“Hm. I cannot earn money from the Ant Milk before I stabilize its production. Well, at least I could keep the doctor away from my family!”

Jiang Fei was disgruntled at the fact that he had no idea how to use the Ant Milk without revealing its true nature.

“How much can you produce?” said Jiang Fei.

“I could produce 100 Ant Eggs and 30 portions of Ant Milk in a day. That is my limit, and I need a full day of rest once I have reached my limit. I can store the Ant Milk, but the Eggs have to be taken in by an adventurer in an hour, or they would hatch!” the Ant Queen replied.

“Not bad,” Jiang Fei nodded happily. Even though most of it were of Normal tiers and only a few of them were Fine tiered, the quantity alone was satisfactory.

But there was a caveat. At first, Jiang Fei had wanted to take all the given eight eggs and Ant Milk and be done with the Ant Queen. However, once he realized that this Ant Queen was a literal mother hen that laid golden eggs, killing her would be a waste!

However, sparing her was also a problem. The Ant Queen is the last boss in this Secret Dungeon. She could never leave the dungeon, which meant that Jiang Fei could never bring her out! Even though the dungeon was well-hidden away, what guarantee did he have that a lucky player would not stumble upon this Secret Dungeon? Additionally, Jiang Fei did not fully trust Smart Tomato. He had only given him his word. Moreover, Jiang Fei was sure that the dungeon was too difficult for any player to raid. That was why he could take his time. But since he had wiped the entire dungeon clean, all that was left was the defenseless Ant Queen! Anyone could waltz into the dungeon and punch her to death!

“Oh my god… I can’t be standing here every day to look after this ant!”

Jiang Fei furrowed his eyebrows, frowning as he tried to think of a solution.
