Chapter 1148: Folding Wings and Lowering Body
Translator: WQL Editor: Aleem
Until Zhang Tie pulled Bai Suxian out of the Gate of Semi-jade Pavilion for a short while did he release Bai Suxian’s hand.
Bai Suxian was still furious as she shouted, “That son of a bitch is too abominable. Why not give him a lesson?”
“They’re waiting for us to fight them!” Zhang Tie replied with a smile.
“What do you mean?”
“As long as one of us couldn’t stand to launch a fight, those guards outside the gate would rush in at once. In the chaos, as long as one of them died there, we might have to die for the dare-to-die fighter raised by others. In Xuanyuan Hill, even knights would face the death penalty after killing a person.” Zhang Tie revealed a cold smile.
“I will see whether they dare do that or not!” Bai Suxian shouted out of fury as she almost goggled out her eyes.
“You’re the princess of Lord Guangnan’s Mansion, of course, they dare not do that to you. They’re aiming at me. I’ve not imagined that Semi-jade Pavilion is under the direct control of Gold and Power Market. I’m afraid that Han Yuanhong has already known the moment we entered Semi-jade Pavilion. Therefore, he set a fatal trap for me. In others’ store, they could price their goods as high as they want. After all, we’ve not closed the deal yet. If we kill people out of fury because we fail to close the deal, we are not justified; we would even lose our lives for that. That guy has already arrived there half an hour ago. He’s not there alone as 10 more people went there together with him. All the guards outside the gate of Semi-jade Pavilion have been changed into his dare-to-die fighters. As long as we started a fight, they would rush in at once and make it severe. Someone would die for sure. As for those guests who entered the store 20 minutes ago, one of them was a knight. As their witness, he pretended to purchase secret books on our neighboring room!”
Although Zhang Tie was in the reception room, he could sense almost everything in the neighborhood with his knight’s consciousness. The moment that guy whom he slapped yesterday entered the room to offend them, Zhang Tie had realized the opponent’s arrangement and vicious trick. If he was a hot-blooded or a bit impulsive young man, he would fall into their trap the moment he started a fight.
The small Semi-jade Pavilion contained such a killing intent. They even wanted to screw an earth knight. How many people could bear such a trick? The only thing that was out of Zhang Tie’s opponent’s imagination was that Zhang Tie who had a pretty bad temper yesterday was actually always good-tempered. Additionally, Zhang Tie was very scrupulous in crisis. He could always identify the trick rapidly. Being silent, Zhang Tie just pulled Bai Suxian away. Therefore, the opponent’s following tricks became useless…
Just now, Bai Suxian didn’t figure out the trick; therefore, she was furious. After hearing Zhang Tie’s analysis, she changed her face at once as she felt chilly inside. Even being a female, Bai Suxian also knew that many heroes who had experienced many great battles were finally screwed by small sinister figures. Actually, what happened just now was very dangerous.
Although being bustling on the street, who could imagine that an earth knight was almost screwed by someone here a few minutes ago? Even the winter sunshine in Xuanyuan Hill could not drive away Bai Suxian’s chilliness.
“I will demolish that godd*mn store right now!” Bai Suxian was driven extremely mad.
“Hahaha, if you demolish their store, you have to compensate for that. If you kill someone, you will have trouble. Even if you don’t compensate for that, they will ask your dad for the compensation. They’re gaining the upper hand. If we’re tricked, we will lose!”
“Will we just let them go?”
“We still have time!”
After buying a seeds bank and strolling in Semi-jade Pavilion for a while before encountering such an annoyance, Bai Suxian and Zhang Tie both lost their interest in wandering in Gold and Power Market. Therefore, they directly left there. After considering the strengths of what happened just now for a short while, Zhang Tie found that he didn’t need to pay hundreds of thousands of gold coins in vain anymore; additionally, he abandoned the thought of getting some complete senior secret books easily. As for whether he could gain some senior secret books in the future, it depended on his fortune.
Soon after Zhang Tie and Bai Suxian left Gold and Power Market, Han Yuanhong had received the information in Treasures Complex. Watching that person kneeling down in front of him with a flurried look, Han Yuanhong even comforted that guy with a long face and sparse beard, “You’ve already tried your best. But I’ve not imagined that Cui Li could be so scrupulous and could seek through our trap. It’s nothing serious. He’s just an earth knight. We’ve got many chances to deal with him in the future. We still have time!”
“We still have time!”
Both Cui Li and Han Yuanhong said the same words in the end.
2 days later, in a small special auction…
“The No. 17 space-teleportation equipment, 7,200 earth-element crystals one time, 7,200 earth-element crystals second time, 7,200 earth-element crystals third time…close the deal!”
When the auctioneer knocked onto the metal stand by a small hammer, Mountain Lifting Hermit’s face turned completely white…
Sitting close to Mountain Lifting Hermit, Zhang Tie let out a sigh inside. Bai Suxian also looked at Mountain Lifting Hermit with a sympathetic expression. The bottom price of that average space-teleportation equipment was only 800 earth-element crystals. Who could imagine that its transaction price could be 9 times more than that of its bottom price? It’s far more than its market price in late years and out of Mountain Lifting Hermit’s purchasing power.
Previously, Mountain Lifting Hermit had full confidence in getting this space-teleportation equipment. These two days, Mountain Lifting Hermit had sold all of his collections in Gold and Power Market; plus his savings, he accumulated 7,100 earth-element crystals in total. Unexpectedly, he still failed to gain that space-teleportation equipment.
In the beginning, over 10 people joined the competition for this space-teleportation equipment. After some rounds of quotations, when the quotation of this space-teleportation equipment surpassed 4,000 earth-element crystals, most of the people gave it up, except for two people who raised the quotation of this space-teleportation equipment to 5,500 earth-element crystals. When Mountain Lifting Hermit quoted 5,600 earth-element crystals, the two people gave it up. The one who competed with Mountain Lifting Hermit to the end was a person in the front of the auction. When others quoted, that person didn’t quote. When Mountain Lifting Hermit quoted alone, that one would definitely add 100 more earth-element crystals on the basis of Mountain Lifting Hermit’s quotation.
The final quotation of Mountain Lifting Hermit was 7,100 earth-element crystals when Zhang Tie found Mountain Lifting Hermit clenching his fists. However, the moment Mountain Lifting Hermit finished his last quotation, the other bidder quoted 7,200 earth-element crystals without any hesitation.
At this moment, Mountain Lifting Hermit refused Zhang Tie’s good intention about lending him earth-element crystals. Therefore, he just watched that space-teleportation equipment being taken away by the other bidder after the auctioneer inquired them three times.
Even Bai Suxian felt that Mountain Lifting Hermit was a bit miserable. However, she didn’t know how to comfort him; neither did Zhang Tie know how to tell him. Actually, Zhang Tie had many space-teleportation equipment; however, as an earth knight, Mountain Lifting Hermit had his dignity and persistence and could not be easily humiliated.
At this moment, the guy who had been competing with Mountain Lifting Hermit in front of them turned around and revealed a pleasant smile towards the three people as if he had won a battle.
However, Mountain Lifting Hermit loosed his fist at this moment as he forced a smile and said in a hoarse voice, “Let’s go!”
Although there were other items to be auctioned, Mountain Lifting Hermit didn’t want to stay here anymore.
The three people then left their seats.
When they left the auction hall, passing through a winding corridor and was going to leave the Secret Items Pavilion, Han Yuanhong appeared in front of them with the space-teleportation finger ring that Mountain Lifting Hermit had been bidding for just now in hand. He tossed the finger ring like a toy as he watched Zhang Tie, Mountain Lifting Hermit and Bai Suxian with a commanding look.
“Don’t you want to look at it? I’m so sorry. I found this space-teleportation equipment was delicate and could be used as a gift, I’ve not imagined that I disrupted your plan. There’s some more space-teleportation equipment in the auction, if you lack earth-element crystals, just let me know. As we’re all Hua knights, it’s my pleasure to give you a favor, hahahahaha…”
Mountain Lifting Hermit who had been reluctant to part with that space-teleportation finger ring threw a deep glance at Han Yuanhong. Without even looking at the item in Han Yuanhong’s hand, he directly passed by Han Yuanhong with a glassy-eyed look. Bai Suxian wanted to lose her temper; however, Zhang Tie pulled her away.
Bai Suxian suppressed her anger as she threw a glare at Han Yuanhong. Zhang Tie revealed a smile as if he had not seen such a person in front of him.
Watching the three people passing by with glassy-eyed looks, Han Yuanhong’s sneer frozen at once…
The three people directly left the Treasures Complex.
“What a bullsh*t place! I will never come here again. It’s disgusting…” Bai Suxian said out of fury.
“Elder brother, where are you heading for?” Zhang Tie asked Mountain Lifting Hermit, “If elder brother is free lately, how about returning to Youzhou Province with us in a few days?”
“There’s always a way. If it doesn’t work here, it doesn’t mean that it won’t work in other places!” Mountain Lifting Hermit gradually recovered his composure. He even talked to Zhang Tie with a smile, “I prepare to try my fortune in Taiyi City. The largest trading center of secret pearls is located in that city. Knights who come back from Earth-elements Realm would exchange their secret pearls for money over there. With these earth-element crystals, I want to try my fortune by buying some secret pearls over there. After I get a space-teleportation, I will come for you in Youzhou Province!”
‘Is there a place for trading secret pearls in Taixia Country?’ Zhang Tie bore the name of Taiyi City deep in mind. The moment he heard this name, Zhang Tie had realized that this city might be related to Taiyi Fantasy Sect.
“Elder brother, when do you prepare to go there?”
Mountain Lifting Hermit looked up at the night being covered with stars as he took in a deep breath and said, “I’d rather choose now than selecting a day…”
Half an hour later, Zhang Tie and Bai Suxian saw off Mountain Lifting Hermit out of Xuanyuan Hill.
When an eagle was going to launch a strike, it would fold its wings and lower its body; when a fierce beast was going to charge at a prey, it would lower its head and body.
‘Could I match a bird or a beast?’
Watching Mountain Lifting Hermit flying towards afar as fast as a lightning bolt, Zhang Tie asked himself as he revealed a faint smile…
9 days left, he could form 3 trouble-reappearance fruits at most…
In the next one week, Zhang Tie didn’t go to Gold and Power Marke anymore. Each morning, he would feed birds; in the daytime, he would visit the scenic spots in Xuanyuan Hill with Bai Suxian. In the evening, he would cultivate quietly in his room. He didn’t meet those nuisances anymore.
He formed one trouble-reappearance fruit per 3 days. Zhang Tie didn’t feel pitiful about that; instead, he treated the effect of trouble-reappearance fruits increasingly lighter.
As for Zhang Tie, he only needed to make his utmost efforts to do that.
On November 12th, Zhang Tie’s disciples finally came back to the manor of Lord Guangnan in Xuanyuan Hill after having fun for almost 2 weeks in Xuanyuan Hill. All of them were in great delights safe and sound.
On November 13th, Zhang Tie and Bai Suxian traveled across Fairy Lake in the daytime. In the evening, Zhang Tie formed a trouble-reappearance fruit at the fastest speed in his cultivation room. Closely after that, he entered the trouble-reappearance situation…
Before entering the new trouble-reappearance situation, Zhang Tie’s mind settled as still water as he didn’t have any hope for that inside the trouble-reappearance situation anymore…
