“First, you go to King’s Cross Station, then enter the magic door between platforms 3 and 4 in a similar way to entering Diagon Alley.”
“After you enter this 3.5 platform, go buy a train ticket to Caithness Town. It only takes an hour to get there. Then, you can see Chifir Mountain Range on the platform after you get off the train.”
“In the cave at the foot of the Chifir Mountain Range, you can find Ms. Fredtanya. When you visit her, you must remember to bring 3 cows and a hundred kilograms of alfalfa. Her favorite pre-dinner salad is cow blood mixed with alfalfa.”
The more Fang Linyan listened, the more he felt something was off. He said hesitantly,
“Wait a minute… Mr. Thermaplugg, why is this lady in the cave? Shouldn’t I take the cows and visit her farm?”
Thermaplugg said in amazement,
“The entire Chifir Mountain Range is her farm. Oh, 1 more thing. Ms. Fredtanya doesn’t hurt humans, but once she’s in heat, she likes to mate with human men. If you don’t have such special hobby, then it’s best to avoid her estrus period before going.”
Fang Linyan’s face turned pale,
“What creature is Madam Fredtanya?”
“A kind and erudite female giant.”
Fang Linyan froze in place for 5 seconds before nodding, sighing, and saying in pain,
“Then the female giant’s estrus should be once a year right?”
Thermaplugg said ruthlessly,
“Wrong, similar to the ovulation period of a human woman.”
Fang Linyan covered his head and sighed,
“Really, I wish I hadn’t heard this news. Mr. Thermaplugg, you’ve brought me a nightmare!”
Thermaplugg shrugged and showed a smug smile,
“Good luck then, Mr. Wrench.”
Fang Linyan said,
“Then can you tell me one more thing? How am I supposed to get out of Diagon Alley to go to London? I don’t want to go the Leaky Cauldron way.”
“You have to buy some floo powder first…”
Half an hour later, Fang Linyan had got enough salt and was on his way back to the Westminster Abbey.
It was worth mentioning that it was already early in the morning when he returned, and there were more policemen at night. Fang Linyan saw an unlucky guy being ordered to stand facing the wall while raising his hands high. After the man did as he was told, he was searched rudely. After that, he was beaten up and got his ring snatched away.
After seeing this scene, Fang Linyan immediately planned to leave, but the policeman had spotted him and asked him to stop.
Of course, Fang Linyan wouldn’t stop obediently, and he didn’t want to have a head-to-head confrontation with the policemen that represented the official force, so he simply ran away. Most policemen of the Scotland Yard were big-bellied and lacked training, so they couldn’t keep up with Fang Linyan’s speed.
But what made Fang Linyan very upset was that the policeman was blowing the whistle and yelling “Jack the Ripper is here”… If Fang Linyan wasn’t in a hurry, he would probably teach this idiot a bloody lesson.
Many bonfires had been lit up in the square. The royal dragon knight had withdrawn from the cathedral and re-established a defensive line. Their main task was to shoot and kill the strange creatures that wandered out. Both sides had basically formed a stalemate.
Fang Linyan went to Lieutenant Root. After a few chats, he found out that the superior had notified that the Westminster Abbey Area was now in a very subtle state, and it was not advisable to have too many human beings influx. Otherwise, if there were too many casualties, the smell of blood might attract more monsters, so defense was the main focus at this stage.
But now they had also discovered 1 thing, the magical creatures appearing in the Westminster Abbey Area would have a restricted range of activities. There would be a large cloud of mist in the area with unusual energy resonance. This mist was actually part of the unusual energy. The stronger the magical creatures, the more they liked to stay in this mist to absorb power and would not run around, so the difficulty of the defense was also plummeting.
Fang Linyan met Robbie again. He looked even more haggard now. He sat there with his head down, looking tired and painful.
But to be honest, he did Fang Linyan a big favor before, so he couldn’t just leave him there. He walked over and said,
“Hi, Robbie? Thank you so much for your information before.”
Robbie raised his head, forced a smile and said,
“Okay then, how are you doing?”
Fang Linyan said,
“I have some clues about it. You have been here alone for a long time. Did you encounter any troubles?”
Robbie’s lips twitched and shook his head,
“Oh, it’s fine.”
Fang Linyan sat over, patted his shoulder and said with concern,
“Hey, buddy, now is not the time to be polite. We are people who have adventured together before. You helped me a lot just now. I am very grateful to you, so why don’t you say your trouble and we discuss it together?”
Robbie wasn’t good at words and seemed to have autism, so he would never speak to strangers. However, after hearing Fang Linyan’s words, he finally told everything.
It turned out that Robbie was a new member of the Ministry of Magic. Now, because of some very bad sudden events in the magical world, the entire Ministry of Magic was disordered.
However, they couldn’t ignore the government’s request for help, so they gave the order to the relevant Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures. But… no one wanted to handle this mess.
Because people with discerning eyes would know at a glance that this was a tough task that didn’t give any benefit. Once one screwed up, he would definitely get punished hard. Therefore, this task was given to the honest Robbie.
Robbie was a typical scholar. He was usually obsessed with studying these mythical creatures. He was very excited when he heard about the change here, because the unusual energy would attract many rare types of magical creatures. Robbie readily agreed, and he didn’t think about the reasons in it.
In fact, to be honest, people like Robbie who are obsessed with research had low demands. He didn’t care about being fired as long as he could still do his research. He could do just as fine anywhere, so he didn’t care if this task was completed or not.
The point was, before Robbie set off, Nataya, a girl who was usually very good to him, saw through the scheme and thought that this trip would be very troublesome, so she took the initiative to borrow a powerful magical tool of her own. This magical tool was the suitcase he was carrying before.
It was said that this magical suitcase was the latest product developed. It is necessary to cast a particularly difficult “traceless stretching spell” on the suitcase many times. More importantly, the leather material of the suitcase must be able to withstand the backlash of the magic power. Among the known materials, only the scalp of an adult rainbow dragon could achieve this goal.
Finally, a “light as a feather” spell would be added to this magical suitcase.
Therefore, the built-in space of this magic suitcase was at least the size of a villa. Hundreds of mythical creatures could be placed in it to let them grow up safely and lively. More importantly, the light as a feather spell that was added at the end would allow even a muggle to carry this suitcase around.
The preciousness of this magical suitcase could be imagined, and it was an eighteenth birthday gift from a loving father to his daughter.
However, when he accompanied the British royal dragon knights into Westminster Abbey, Robbie got lost with the soldiers in the chaos and fainted. When he woke up, he found that the magical suitcase had disappeared.
Such an important thing was lost by Robbie in Westminster Abbey. Robbie’s mood could be imagined; guilt, annoyance, and pain lingered in his mind.
Perhaps the dull Robbie was aware of his own feelings only at this time.
Robbie had quietly entered Westminster Abbey to search for a while, but he found that this magical suitcase actually fell within the sphere of influence of a thunderbird. This powerful creature was known for its typical eccentric temper.
When it built the nest, it seemed to lack materials. It actually liked the soft material of this magic suitcase and used it to cover the bottom of the nest. The last time Robbie saw the suitcase, there were already a few stains which seemed to be bird poop…
Fang Linyan decided to help Robbie before listening to Robbie’s story. When he realized that the key to completing this task was thunderbird, he felt that it was really a coincidence. He patted Robbie’s shoulder and said,
“So this is the case! You can rest assured to leave this to me. Your current state looks very bad. You should eat something and rest first to recover your stamina. By that time, my companions should have arrived. We will get the suitcase back together.”
Hearing Fang Linyan’s words, Robbie raised his head and looked at him gratefully,
“Okay, Mr. Wrench.”
Meanwhile, Fang Linyan also got a prompt,
“Contestant ZB419, you triggered a related story mission, but the world has not officially started, and you are a mercenary, so you cannot activate it.”
“You can currently only complete milestones, exploration missions, and recurring missions, but you cannot activate plot tasks and main missions.”
TL: His companions? Does he mean other contractors?
