I Only Know Forbidden Spells - Chapter 35
Lin An had never expected Sahadika to say such a thing.
What kind of existence was the black dragon? Once they wanted something, they would go to great lengths to get it. They would not stop until they achieved their goal.
At the same time, it was also the most vengeful and greedy creature.
Since the black dragon had already opened its mouth to ask him about Darkness Devour, Lin An was actually already prepared for the black dragon to use some methods on him, or even torture him.
But now, the black dragon actually said that if he didn’t want to say it, then forget it, he wouldn’t force him!?
What kind of words were those?
Since when was the black dragon so easy to talk to?
Wasn’t that like seeing a ghost!?
One had to know that in order to obtain what they wanted, an existence like the black dragon could even slaughter tens of thousands of people in a city.
How could such an existence say that if you weren’t willing, I wouldn’t force you?
“You don’t have to look at me like that. I actually really want you to tell me honestly how you learned the Darkness Devour spell.”
“But I once promised someone that I wouldn’t force the Darkness Devour spell’s successor.”
The black dragon even raised its neck and looked quite proud. “I’m a giant dragon that keeps its promises!”
Hearing Sahadika’s words, Lin An didn’t even know what to say for a moment.
What did a black dragon mean by keeping its promises? This was simply a fantasy!
What was a black dragon? It was a cunning, ruthless, and greedy creature that never kept its promises.
If it wasn’t for the black dragon’s powerful combat strength, the black dragon would definitely be the most detestable existence.
Even now, the black dragon was actually the first target of those who dreamed of becoming a dragon-slaying warrior.
This was because the black dragon’s profits were definitely the largest among the Pentashade Dragons, and it was also the most troublesome of the Pentashade Dragons.
So when a black dragon said something like keeping a promise or making an oath in front of you…
Lin An’s first reaction wasn’t to praise how great and noble this black dragon was.
Instead, he suspected that this black dragon was playing some tricks on him?
Until Lin An saw that there seemed to be a circle of patterns on the black dragon’s neck. This was a circle of patterns formed by mysterious words. Lin An could tell at a glance that this was a contract spell.
Moreover, this contract spell should have been around for a very long time. It should have been signed before this black dragon was even an adult.
“You were signed by the previous person who possessed the Darkness Devour magic? What is the content of the contract?”
Lin An immediately understood everything. The reason why this black dragon in front of him was so kind, even gentler than the Good Dragons, and did not directly kill him.
This was definitely not because he was kind or had other thoughts.
It was because he had signed a contract with someone else and could not make a move against someone who had the Darkness Devour spell.
Perhaps there were other things that he had not guessed.
But from the looks of it, at least he should be safe.
“How did you know?!”
As expected, the moment Lin An asked this question, the black dragon immediately pounced on Lin An.
The huge dragon head opened its mouth and let out a terrifying roar. Air gushed out from its lungs and blew Lin An back a few steps like a hurricane. Now, it sat on the ground.
“Kid, do you want to die?!”
Sahadika’s fierce gaze landed on Lin An. For a moment, Lin An actually felt a sense of terror as if he was in an ice cellar.
Even moving a finger had become an extravagant hope.
“Kid, you better behave yourself. Otherwise, I can crush you like an ant at any time!”
Sahadika’s change of attitude came too quickly. Almost at the moment Lin An said these words, he had already started to act.
Moreover, this ferocious and terrifying appearance really had an incomparable ferocity to it.
“Now you’ve finally revealed your true colors?”
Sahadika didn’t use his dragon’s might. He only wanted to use his gaze to guide the fear in Lin An’s heart.
However, Lin An had lived two lives after all. Whether it was his strength or ability, he had already made a complete improvement.
There was no need to mention his courage and mental strength. Thus, Sahadika’s plan had indeed failed.
Lin An was only stunned by him for a short while before he recovered and looked at him indifferently.
“You’re not afraid!?”
Sahadika was confused now. This human was really not afraid of him?
After all, he was a black dragon!
An existence that could kill him with a single sneeze, yet he was not afraid of him at all? How was this possible!?
“I’m not afraid.”
Lin An was telling the truth this time, but his words seemed to have angered Sahadika to death.
Sahadika wanted to say something, but he quickly gave up. Instead, he looked at Lin An with a serious expression. “You’re indeed very smart, but haven’t you ever thought that a smart person might not last long?”
“Even if I don’t kill you, I have many ways to kill you.”
Sahadika’s words were actually admitting to Lin An’s previous question. He really couldn’t hurt Lin An directly.
“There are many powerful magical beasts in this magical beast forest. As long as I casually throw you into the territory of a tier-7 magical beast, it will tear you into pieces in an instant!”
“You won’t do that.”
Lin An raised his head and looked at Sahadika with a determined gaze. He didn’t dare to relax in the slightest.
After Sahadika heard this, he lowered his head and looked into Lin An’s eyes. A human and a dragon, two beings that were as different as watermelon and sesame, looked into each other’s eyes.
Lin An knew that this was a gamble. He was betting that Sahadika wouldn’t kill him.
He was betting that the contract that Sahadika signed was extremely binding on him. Otherwise, the other party wouldn’t have allowed a human like him to loiter in front of him for so long.
However, all of this was just Lin An’s guess. If he guessed wrong and angered Sahadika, then he would definitely die!
No matter how much interest Sahadika had in him, this wasn’t as hateful as a human who dared to provoke a giant dragon.
To a proud giant dragon, being questioned by a weak human, they would undoubtedly use this person’s blood to wash away the humiliation. Thus, Lin An was actually in a very dangerous situation.
If he was slightly careless, this proud black dragon would tear him into pieces!
“Are you really not afraid of death?!”
Sahadika looked at Lin An in confusion. This human seemed to be slightly different from the other humans he had seen before?
Every time those humans saw him, they would either shout and scream for death or flee in panic. Other than the domineering man from back then, it seemed like only this person in front of him was different.
“I’m afraid of death.”
Lin An nodded without any hesitation and continued, “That’s why I want to survive!”
“You don’t dare to kill me, and you won’t kill me either. I’m extremely certain of this now.”
Sahadika laughed strangely when he heard Lin An’s words. “You’re really a strange person, but you’re also a warrior.”
“There are very few people who can be as calm as you when facing a black dragon, especially those who dare to speak to me like this. You’re not bad.”
Sahadika nodded with a satisfied expression, then continued, “However, your guess might be wrong. It’s not that I can’t kill you, but I can’t kill you right now.”
Sahadika was like a weirdo who had satisfied his bad taste. He continued to say to Lin An in a strange voice, “You have to be careful. You have to be extremely careful.”
“Because when you do something, I will be able to kill you. Do you think you will die then?”
These words struck Lin An’s heart like a bolt of lightning. However, Lin An remained unmoving on the surface, not showing the slightest hint of fear.
“Yes, as long as what you said is true, then I will definitely die!”
Lin An nodded with a serious expression, then, he looked at Sahadika calmly. “But all of this has to be based on the fact that what you said is true. What if it’s fake? You’re just scaring me, trying to make me feel uneasy and keep me in a sensitive state at all times.”
“You can think whatever you want.”
Sahadika didn’t refute Lin An, because that was indeed the purpose of his words.
He wanted Lin An to not eat well and not sleep well.
As for whether his words were true or not, only he knew in this world.
As long as he didn’t speak, no one would know whether it was true or not.
So even if Lin An guessed something, as long as he didn’t speak, Lin An would inevitably fall into this complicated emotion and not be able to extricate himself. This was his purpose.
“Since you saved me, you must have your own plans.”
“What do you want? Treasure or the forbidden spell of Darkness Devour?”
In Lin An’s opinion, these two things were the only things that could move the black dragon’s heart. As for the rest, they shouldn’t be worth mentioning in front of him.
“Treasure? How much treasure can you have?”
Sahadika snorted in disdain, and his tone was full of contempt. “In terms of treasure, I’m as rich as a country. Even a royal family’s savings might not be as much as mine. Do you think you can have enough treasure to move me?”
“Then is it like the forbidden spell, Darkness Devour?”
Lin An looked at Sahadika with a teasing expression. He felt that he had already grasped a little of Sahadika’s tail.
Since Sahadika had what he wanted on him, then he could restrain him. At the very least, he could guarantee his safety.
“Kid, I don’t care what you think, and I don’t care what your plans are.”
“But don’t use your stupid brain to guess the thoughts of the Great Black Dragon Sahadika!”
Sahadika immediately let out a furious roar and turned his head away arrogantly, no longer paying attention to Lin An.
This time, Lin An was completely sure that Sahadika’s target was definitely Darkness Devour. However, as a black dragon, he naturally had the dragon language spell that was passed down in his bloodline.
Among the dragon language magic, there was also a forbidden spell that was no weaker than Darkness Devour.
However, Sahadika still wanted Darkness Devour, which meant that this thing must be of great use to him.
With this connection, Lin An suddenly raised his head and looked at Sahadika’s neck.
There was still a large number of words from the contract magic. Perhaps Darkness Devour was the thing that freed him from the binding of the contract magic. In this case, he had to master Darkness Devour well!
In the blink of an eye, Lin An had already thought about many things in his heart. However, these thoughts were all buried deep in Lin An’s heart in the end.
This was because he knew what he should do now. Compared to him, Sahadika was stronger and weaker. At the moment, he could barely survive by relying on the contract spell on his body.
But if he wanted to be truly safe, he could only rely on his own strength.
Lin An calmed down and started to meditate on the spot.
He sensed the magic power in the air, communicated with them, and slowly integrated the magic power into his body.
“Such a slow communication speed? Kid, you’ve even learned a forbidden spell. You can’t be a good-for-nothing, right?”
Sahadika originally didn’t plan to pay attention to Lin An, but he felt that the flow of magic power in the air was too slow.
This was his lair, and the magic power was quite dense.
But this kid’s communication speed was surprisingly slow, which was simply strange.
An apprentice who knew a forbidden spell was already a sensational matter.
However, this apprentice who knew a forbidden spell seemed to be a good-for-nothing and didn’t have a high affinity for magic…
This was even more ridiculous.
Lin An heard Sahadika’s words, but Lin An didn’t care.
He continued to meditate and communicate with his magic power.
The most important thing now was to increase his strength. As for Sahadika’s sarcasm, he had no interest or energy to care about it.
He couldn’t be distracted while he was meditating. If he was slightly careless, his magic power would backfire on him.
Therefore, Lin An had to calm down and continue his meditation step by step.
“That guy probably never dreamed that the person who inherited his forbidden spell would be such a good-for-nothing, right?”
“But good-for-nothing, how did he learn the forbidden spell? It’s really strange.”
Sahadika had lived for so many years, but he had never seen such a strange thing. Thus, he could only shake his head and ignore these things.
However, seeing that Lin An was training so hard, Sahadika immediately felt a little emotional.
“Forget it. Seeing that you worked so hard, I’ll help you out. Consider this as my return to that guy.”
Sahadika muttered a little arrogantly. Then, he opened his mouth and spat out a dark dragon breath, enveloping Lin An within.
Immediately, the magic power in the air became restless, and light dust that could be seen with the naked eye began to enter Lin An’s body in a frenzy.
“The benefit is for you, but whether you have the life to endure it or not, I don’t know. Everything will depend on fate!”
