“En, this is my crystal card, so I don’t need your crystal card. Just directly transfer the sum over by docking it together, and then take Philroth’s belongings from him too, or rather, hand it over to me. The more you hand over, the happier I’ll be, and the smoother your experience.”
Li Xuan laughed as he said this, and did such a thing because he understood the capabilities of these two people too well. Not to mention that they only bullied the weak and feared the strong, they definitely had no ability to retaliate. Furthermore, the opportunity to get money was too convenient and came right when he was empty-handed, so no matter what, he wouldn’t let this chance go.
As for the previous things he said before, he honestly exaggerated a bit. Ignoring the fact that entering the Li Clan wasn’t that easy, just based on the identity of these two people, if they had truly been killed, then Li Xuan would definitely be ruined if he wasn’t part of the Li Clan by that time. And if a genius like him died, it might cause some sort of trouble for the two clans. However, when comparing that with a grudge that could result between descendants of direct descent, the clans of the two people would not mind too much. In this matter, Li Xuan had a perfect understanding of their attitude.
However, if the other party had provoked him and he had taught them a lesson in return and was also compensated with money, the result would be different. The other party’s clan wouldn’t madly attempt to retaliate because of this. After all, risking offense to Iris City’s Li Clan wouldn’t be a wise decision, and this kind of experience was also a sort of training for their younger generation. If they felt shame and rose from it, they would instead further throw themselves into training, and thus, a squabble between children wouldn’t be paid attention to by anyone.
Li Xuan had considered these things very thoroughly, and at this moment, were it not for the fact that he was still unable to locate his younger sister, he would have simply killed them—even if the two people harbored no murderous intent or hatred.
“Li, Young Master Li, this, this is *your crystal card, and these, these are his two gale rings. Once can increase your physical speed, and the other is capable of somewhat resisting the airflow…”
The fatty spoke with a heavy air of flattery, and at this moment, he was truly sincere.
He was a noble who only knew pleasure, so his willpower wasn’t very firm and he was terrified of death. Although he was quite indignant, he was powerless to do anything to change the situation. The situation was as though someone had been a beggar, and no matter how they were bullied, nothing would happen. However, a day had come that this beggar suddenly became a crown prince. Could such a person be wantonly bullied? And on the contrary, the bully had even begun to get bullied by the former beggar! However, the bully could only bear with it because his previous victim was no longer someone he could afford to offend.
“En, very good, I’m quite satisfied, so this gale ring can be considered as your reward. En, here are two ‘red pills’ whose healing effects aren’t bad, one for you and one for Philroth. I need to go to Iris City immediately, so find me another time to have a drink.”
Li Xuan patted that fatty’s shoulder with a radiant smile. Overwhelmed with this kind of favor, the fatty nearly fell to his knees on the ground, accepting the gale ring and red pills with a trembling hand, not knowing what to do for a while.
“Li, Young Master Li, thank, thank you.” The fatty stuttered as spoke, then stood there dumbly as he dazedly watched Li Xuan stride away with big steps.
“Amar, you bastard, hurry, hurry up and give me the red pill.” Philroth who had been completely plundered almost cried.
“Oh, yes, just, just before I’ve wronged you.”
“Wronged me your little sister—”
“Hehe, go wrong my sister then, my head constantly hurts because of her…”
“This pill’s effect is truly good. It seems as though he really has been looked after by Iris City’s Li Clan with good medicine like this.” Amar sighed in admiration. This incident that made him feel as though he were in hell, yet also in heaven had really done him in.
“Bullcrap, that medicine was from my interspatial ring—whatever, you’re right. We’ve been plain fooled. Before, he was only at around 2nd Hui 2nd layer, but now he killed a 2nd Hui 7th layer mage in a flash. I admit, my guard, Kyd, had underestimated the enemy, but he’s clearly increased his strength by a large amount.
From this, it seems as though his innate talent really has grown. Ai, I really have no eyes to have provoked such a dangerous person. It can be considered that I’ve invested so many years in vain for that ring.” Philroth said a bit helplessly.
“It’s just a trashy interspatial ring of the lowest grade. It was only around three or five hundred thousand gold coins, so just sell several more elven slaves and it’ll be fine.” The fat Amar didn’t think it really mattered.
“You understand fart, that thing of *mine—”
(*TL: arrogant way)
Philroth immediately became furious. That ring was a product that contained eight cubic meters of space that he had bought for one million gold coins, how could it be a trash good that only held around three to five cubic meters of space. It was just that at that time, he had wanted to keep a ‘low-profile’ and told the fatty that it was trash in order to avoid other people’s attention. It truly caused him to want to cry although no tears came out.
What inherited family ring, that was only a lie.
If it was truly ring given by the clan, he wouldn’t have worn it on his hand.
“Ai, no more money. Are we still going to the auction?” The fatty didn’t really bother with Philroth’s crazed mood. On the contrary, he didn’t feel as though he had suffered any type of loss. After all, another person had suffered loss even more miserably and terribly than him, so he was quite calm in his heart. Ultimately, having offended a genius, it was satisfying enough to have just survived with his life.
“Go your little sister! I’ll tell you now, you damned fatty, that when you were looting me just then, even the card that *I had hid in my underpants was taken by you! What money do I have anymore!”
Thinking up to this point, Philroth immediately began bawling.
“Hehe, I know you still have a necklace with a space dimension within, and that is the genuine item from the clan. I didn’t even touch it, and when that Li Xuan looked at it, he didn’t say he wanted it. Clearly, he let you off easy. If it were me, then I would’ve directly taken it. Come on, there should still be around five hundred thousand in there for emergencies. We’ll invest time together and then earn the money back.”
“You—Fatty, you even know about this?” Philroth was slightly startled, and he immediately became a bit more serious.
“We’ve even shared our pants since we were young, how could I not know a few secrets of yours? What true idiot is there in this world. If other’s have let us off leniently, then we should know to respond appropriately. If we foolishly scrambled to get revenge, then that would definitely be equivalent to looking for death.
It only seems as though nobody cares that Li Xuan’s innate talent was abolished. But, that doesn’t mean that the Li Clan threw him away, so when he recovered his innate talent this time, the Li Clan’s definitely going to tightly protect him, understand?”
The fatty spoke in a calm manner very seriously and earnestly.
“Fatty, you, I’ve actually belittled you.”
“Haha, what are you saying this for. Let’s hurry up and go. We still look really shameful, so we won’t be able to avoid a round of scolding when we go back. En, also, our cultivations have been destroyed, so we have to use some top-notch elemental elixirs, and I have to make preparations to get strung up by my father again…” The fatty spoke while snickering. Regarding the matter of having his cultivation destroyed, it seemed as though it was quite common to him.
On another side, Li Xuan imbued the crystal card with someone fire elemental energy and opened it. Seeing that there was a figure showing 730,000 gold coins, he immediately laughed with satisfaction.
The general currency for this continent was gold coins. One gold coins was equivalent to one hundred silver coins, which was equivalent to ten thousand copper coins.
And one gold coin was able to buy something at around 100RMB. However, what was different was that gold coins themselves contained a small amount of metal elemental energy because that was how it was created, and this element could be absorbed to aid in cultivation. As such, not only would gold coins not depreciate in value, its value would forever remain.
Furthermore, once a gold coin’s elemental energy was absorbed, then the gold coin would shatter and become waste metal, able to be used to make equipment.
This was only a unique use of gold coins, and in general, nobody on the continent would do something like that. That was because using gold coins to purchase magical beast cores was more worthwhile, and absorbing the elemental energy from gold coins wasn’t as fast or bountiful as absorbing elemental energy from the environment. However, some people who were incapable of cultivating or a few poor people could only rely on gold coins to absorb and accumulate elemental energy.
730,000 gold coins was considered to be quite a large amount, but even with so many gold coins, it was impossible to buy a set of 3-star upper grade armor. Even if it was a commodity of the at 3-star middle grade, one would need to have at least 500,000 gold coins, so strictly speaking, this amount of gold coins wasn’t high.
