Chapter 151: Truly starting to be a big brother
The utterly speechless Wei Suo removed his conical bamboo hat.
That Ninepeaks assistant who hastily rushed out was actually one of the two simple minded fools; the brightly dressed thick brows large chap, Zhu Xiaochun.
“Ah Brother Li, it’s really you!”
“Why are you here, and you’ve even become an assistant for the Ninepeaks?” Observing the excitedly lunging Zhu Xiaochun, Wei Suo couldn’t help but blurt out.
“Didn’t big brother mention that if you wanted to find us, then you’ll meet us outside the Ninepeaks, no?” Zhu Xiaochun looked as though he was having a hard time explaining. “After that incident previously, we pondered that unless in an emergency, we no longer dared to simply leave the city. Furthermore, big brother wouldn’t be around to lead us. However, big brother didn’t come to search for us at all, while our spiritual stones only continued to deplete. Coincidentally, the Ninepeaks was lacking in manpower, I simply became a shop assistant of the Ninepeaks……thinking that big brother designated this place as our meeting point, being the shop assistant would provide a good chance of us meeting. Never did I expect I would really be meeting big brother today.”
Facing one of the two simple minded fools, Wei Suo didn’t know of he should laugh or cry. “How many spiritual stones can you earn here in one day. Wasting so much time here without cultivation….with your cultivation, finding a safe place outside while hunting level 1 or 2 demonic beast would still be better ah.”
“Hoho.” Hearing Wei Suo’s words, Zhu Xiaochun chuckled mischievously. Making sure nobody was around, he sneakily hummed like a mosquito to Wei Suo. “Of course I can’t earn a single spiritual stone from being a shop assistant, but Zheng Congming and I have been plotting for a long while. We are prepared to make a big break……”
“Making a big break?” Wei Suo couldn’t help but feel that the plan belonging to the two simple minded fools wouldn’t be a good one.
As expected, Zhu Xiao Chun conceitedly whispered, “Our plan is to first obtain the shop owner’s trust. Then, coordinating an internal and external offense, we will swipe away the items in this shop and run. The shop owner is frequently busy forging artifacts while the shop lacks assistants. Today itself, another assistant was tricked by Zhen Chongming to view something outside. I have already stored all the spiritual stones here. If not for big brother’s arrival, I would’ve already laid hands on the warehouse and swipe away everything there.”
Wei Suo almost fainted upon hearing that and couldn’t help but admonish Zhu Xiaochun. “Your big brother wants to cry out. Do you know the warehouses of this ship possesses unique forbidden controls? Especially a shop that pays loads of spiritual stones to Heaven’s First Sect monthly. Once their forbidden controls are activated, all of Heaven’s First Sect’s transportation arrays would be sealed; guards would be watching at the city gates until the moment you get apprehended……”
“Ah?” Zhu Xiaochun broke into cold sweat. “Big brother. According to what you just said, was it fortunate that I didn’t enter the warehouse yet”
“You don’t say. Furthermore, for larger shops, they would probably possess a large backing behind them or certain redoubtable loose cultivators. Your plan to rob this shop is as good as planning to rob a sect.” Wei Suo was immensely speechless as he noted that Zhu Xiaochun was completely oblivious and yet wanted to rob the shop. “Hurry up and return the spiritual stones you took.”
“Straight away, straight away.” Drenched in cold sweat from fright, Zhu Xiaochun scuttled away to return the spiritual stones back to its original source……
In reality, most shops weren’t as terrifying as what Wei Suo made it to be. Rather similarly to killing an elite disciple of a sect, one could just flee as far away as possible. There wasn’t much of an issue unless one’s luck was bad and got discovered. Yet it wasn’t worth it to provoke such a trouble on oneself for a measly amount of spiritual stones.
“Remember. Don’t address my surname as Li in the Ninepeaks but as surnamed Ji.” After a brief while, Wei Suo ordered Zhu Xiaochun who had returned.
“I understand, big brother Ji.” Zhu Xiaochun wasn’t dumb but immediately gave an understanding nod.
“What an idiot. Treating an ordinary black rock as a Blackbright crystal, wasting this daddy a futile trip!” As Wei Suo was about to speak again, that suntanned shop attendant from previously berated as he trudged in…..
“Senior Ji!” Noticing Wei Suo, that shop attendant was instantly startled before he changed to a respectful and cordial bearing.
“This man is binded by fate with me through many encounters, let me speak to him outside for a while.” After issuing expressionlessly to that shop assistant, he nodded towards Zhu Xiaochun as they strolled out of the Ninepeaks shop. After Zhu Xiaochun strode quickly to catch up, Wei Suo asked, “Where is that brat, Zhen Chongming?”
Zhu Xiaochun replied, “We agreed to meet near the vicinity of the announcement board.”
Listening to that, Wei Suo immediately cursed ‘your sister’ in his heart. If it was another pair of cultivators coordinating to rob spiritual stones and flee, they would surely select a meeting point that’s most remote……but they actually chose an area with the most people. When investigation starts, there would be multitudes of witnesses to prove that this mindless muscleman, Zheng Chongming, was in cahoots with him. This was truly an unordinary plan that could only be schemed by two simple minded fools.
“Go find him and bring him here.” Wei Suo didn’t wish to walk any longer and ordered Zhu Xiaochun.
“Big brother. You have my utmost gratitude. If not for you, we would have died terribly. But why did you disappear for so long, causing us to exhaust all our spiritual stones. Otherwise, we wouldn’t resort to such means.” After a brief while, Zhu Xiaochun rushed back while leading a groveling Zhen Congming. Upon meeting, he immediately started with that sentence that almost caused Wei Suo to faint from anger. When did these two morons having no spiritual stones become my problem?
“Do you two really wish to follow me to earn spiritual stones?” Wei Suo didn’t wish to engage in nonsensical conversation with the two simple minded fools, and directly questioned them….
“Big brother, isn’t that obvious no?” The two immediately nodded as though rattling against a drum.
“Then assist me in selling some items.” Wei Suo gazed at the both of them and continued. “I’ll award 70 low grade spiritual stones to each of you.”
“Just selling a few items, that simple?” Zhu Xiaochun and Zhen Congming exchanged glances. “Big brother, what items?”
Wei Suo didn’t explain further but straightforwardly produced an Iron Profound Shield, a Black Tortoise Shield and two black Treasure Receiving pockets to Zhu Xiaochun. Next, he produced a Copper shield and two black Treasure Receiving pockets to Zhen Congming. “Just these items. Remember, just sell them at large shops like the Golden Jade Pavilion, but you must sell them to different places……”
“Big brother. You actually possess so many half-spirit class shield artifacts and Treasure Receiving pockets?” Zhu Xiaochun and Zhen Congming stared blankly at the items, but immediately corrected themselves. “Indeed, Big brother is on another level as a Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator.”
Without being visibly moved, Wei Suo retrieved another 140 low grade spiritual stones and handed to the two. Then, he looked at Zhu Xiaochun and issued, “Zhu Xiaochun, I have some matters that requires me to borrow your green venomous artifact weapon. Could you lend it to me for a few days?”
“Big brother, are you talking about my Greenflame Fork? Big brother since you trust us so much, then of course.” Zhu Xiaochun very forthrightly fished out his green harpoon like artifact and handed it to Wei Suo. Simultaneously, he asked, “RIght, big brother. How do we return the spiritual stones to you after selling off these items?” Zhu Xiaochun thought about it, could it be…..
“When you receive the spiritual stones, just come directly to where I stay. But remember, you cannot tell anyone where I live.” Wei Suo examined the green harpoon artifact briefly before storing it. Then, he sighed faintly and detailed to the two individuals about his Heaven Grade Residence.
“Great! Big brother, then wait for our good news.” Zhu Xiaochun and Zhen Congming nodded before rushing off excitedly to sell the items for Wei Suo.
After observing the two individuals leaving into the distance, Wei Suo turned and return to the Ninepeaks.
Noticing that Wei Suo returned alone, that suntanned shop assistant was slightly confused. Without waiting for him to speak up, Wei Suo emotionless waved his hands and explained. “They are running an errand for me. Bring me to see your boss Murong, I have matters to discuss with him……”
Naturally, the suntanned assistant wouldn’t dare to refute. He immediately led Wei Suo to Murong Chen’s room at the backyard in exceptionally respectful fashion.
Roughly 6 hours later, that shop assistant witnessed a beaming Murong Chen personally escorting Wei Suo out. Murong Chen then mentioned to him about recruiting another shop assistant, while simultaneously handing him a surprising list of items that he had prepared to hand to Wei Suo.
Detailed within that list, was a 100 Golden Spirit pellets, 200 Cyan Beetle Demonic pellets, and various spirit medicines that were worth up to 3,000 low grade spiritual stones.
“Could it be the real identity of this man is an alchemist?”
The more the suntanned assistant pondered, the more he reckoned such a possibility. Otherwise, this guest wouldn’t frequently require various demonic pellets and spirit medicines. However, he naturally didn’t dare to inquire, but handed over what the Ninepeaks presently had to Wei Suo – 90 Golden Spirit pellets, 50 Cyan Beetle Demonic pellets and a portion of the spirit medicines. Then, he hastily went off to make the necessary arrangements, announcing the news of them purchasing items.
After receiving this portion of items, Wei Suo placed back his conical bamboo hat and left the Ninepeaks shop. He proceeded to tour the northern market and purchased several other items. Then, Wei Suo headed towards the southern city area and through the doors of the Golden Jade Pavilion.
Several hours later, the youthly Lin Feng of the Golden Jade Pavilion courteously escorted Wei Suo out of the Golden Jade Pavilion.
Still dressed in his cyan robe and conical bamboo hat, Wei Suo drifted back towards his Heaven Grade Residence.
After entering his Heaven Grade Residence, Wei Suo wasn’t in a rush to retire to his private room. Instead, he sat in a meditative position within the spirit fruit garden. Not long later, the ringing of the transmission golden thread resounded.
Wei Suo’s figure blurred as he surged over. After a while, he returned. This time, the envious pair of faces belonging to Zhu Xiaochun and Zhen Congming were curiously scanning around behind him.
After halting within the spirit fruit garden, Wei Suo then instructed, “If you two really wish to earn spiritual stones with me, you cannot disobey my orders, and your operating area is confined until this spirit farm district. Never overstep a single step from this spirit farm district. If I have any matters, I will naturally task you with it. No matter what, you cannot take even half a step into the inner regions. If not, you will trigger the forbidden controls that I have installed. If you encounter any misfortune then, don’t blame me.”
“We understand, big brother!” Zhu Xiaochun and Zhen Congming slapped their chest and promised. “The two of us will just train in this spirit fruit garden. In any case, big brother is too generously loyal, gifting us with 10 low grade spiritual stones a day is sufficient for us to train already.”
