“Are you crazy?” Upon entering Han Weiwei’s box, he noticed the satisfied Han Weiwei sitting down. Seething with anger, Wei Suo couldn’t help but scold, “Two Rock Tailed Wall Lizards are only worth a few spiritual stones, yet to get back at me you spent 15,000 spiritual stones. You really treat your Precious Treasure Pavilion as picking Spiritual stones from the ground?”
Han Weiwei observed Wei Suo delightfully, exposing a sly smile. “I like it, so what? It is better than some people who spend 700 spiritual stones on despicable things.”
“What 700 spiritual stones?” Nangong Yuqing stared at Wei Suo with slight confusion.
“What do you want?” Wei Suo was so furious that he could kill this silver beauty on the spot; raping her before he killed her. His vision started blackening as he raged.
“I already said I’ll let you obediently beg me. Why, looks like this Spirit Controlling Technique is very important? I’ve already scrolled through it, such simplicity, its very ordinary.” The more angsty Wei Suo became, the more pleased Han Weiwei was. “Nothing much really, I just want to have a fair duel with you and discipline you a little.”
Wei Suo stared deathly at Han Weiwei. “Then If i win? You’ll give me the technique and promise to never harass me again?”
“In a fair match you think you can beat me?” Han Weiwei scoffed icily. “Alright if you can beat me, then this technique is yours and I won’t find you for trouble anymore. But if you lose….”
“What if I lose, just tell me straight up right now.” Wei Suo couldn’t help lashing back.
“Why are you in such a rush? I haven’t thought of it yet.” Han Weiwei pursed her lips as she pondered. “Right, I got it. If you lose, then you’ll be my slave for a month how about it? When that happens anything I ask of you, you have to do. You cannot feign illness or complain but must repeatedly shout, ‘Yes Master’.”
“Master your head.” Wei Suo glared at the delighted Han Weiwei. “If I win I get this Spirit Controlling Technique? But if you win I won’t even receive my Spirit Controlling Technique and still have to be your slave for a month; doing whatever you ask and even want me to address you as master? Perhaps you’ve fallen for me? Since the night is cold and lonely, you want me to accompany you right?”
“Shameless!” Han Weiwei turned sullen. “As my slave you’ll only have to do chores during the day, and scram during the night. What Spirit Controlling Technique, its value is only 15,000 low quality spiritual stones. Forget it, I can’t be bothered to debate with this hooligan. If you can win against me, I’ll not only give the Spirit Controlling Technique to you, but also be your slave for a month.”
Wei Suo smirked. “Alright this is what you said, don’t regret it later on.”
Han Weiwei sneered at Wei Suo. “Me, regret? I, Han Weiwei, have never gone back on my words. You dare to take an oath?”
“Wei Suo….” At this moment, Nangong Yuqing was tugging at Wei Suo’s back as if trying to tell him something. But Han Weiwei immediately interrupted. “Nangong Yuqing, I advise you, it’s better you leave this shameless guy as far as possible, in case this brat deceives you.”
After hearing Han Weiwei’s words, Nangong Yuqing humbly shook her head and remained silent.
“What oath? Wei Suo angrily asked.
“If you dare to go back on your words, your future spouse will be fatter than a pig, face full of pockmarks, height 3 feet, waist similarly 3 feet, and you’ll never cultivate till the Golden Pellet Stage your entire life.” Han Weiwei laughed. “But looking at you right now, trying to cultivate to the Golden Pellet Stage is indeed wishful thinking.”
“What!” Wei Suo almost fainted from anger. “Okay. If I go back on my words, I’ll marry a wife as fat as a pig, face full of pockmarks, height 3 feet, waist similarly 3 feet and will never reach the Golden Pellet Stage cultivation forever. But if you go back on your words, then you’ll marry a guy as fat as a pig, face full of pockmarks, height and waist 3 feet, and he must come from Cold North City.”
“Why Cold North City?” Han Weiwei was slightly puzzled by this.
Wei Suo snorted and explained. “You haven’t experienced it before right? Cold North City doesn’t have any water within its 3000 mile radius. The cultivators there train for a year without showering. Once your hand swipes onto them, it’ll be filled with dirt.”
“That’s disgusting!” Han Weiwei was stupefied as she looked at Wei Suo speechlessly. After regaining her senses, she gritted her teeth and exclaimed, “Alright! I’ll take this oath. If i go back on my words after losing, then I’ll marry a guy fatter than a pig, face full of pockmarks, height and waist 3 feet, and he must come from Cold North City.”
“Good, then when should we duel?”
“Right now. There’s a room nearby the Precious Treasure Pavilion to test the might of artifacts and techniques, it is spacious enough.” Han Weiwei snorted at Wei Suo. “Hmph, in case you prepare any despicable methods; it’s best if we don’t use any artifacts, that is the fairest.”
“Do it whichever way you want, but even Energy Recovery Pellet is prohibited. Wouldn’t that be the fairest?” Wei Suo emotionlessly offered.
“Let’s do that then. You really dare to?” Han Weiwei glanced at Wei Suo with a slight disbelief. Because the impression Wei Suo gave her was that of an average cultivator, but one who knew much dishonest practices.
Wei Suo batted his eyes at her. “Since you’re looking for a beating, I can’t do anything about it.”
“Alright, then nobody is allowed to use any artifacts, defensive artifacts or medicine pellets. If anyone uses them, that will be considered a defeat.” Han Weiwei excitedly stood up. “Let’s go, we’ll head over to my Precious Treasure Pavilion for a fight now.”
“Wait a moment.” Wei Suo suddenly waved his hand.
“Why, you’re regretting now?” Han Weiwei’s eyes widened out.
“Why the rush, let’s take a look at the next two items first. The next auctioned items are mine.” Wei Suo headed over to the window.
“Mind Devouring Bug? The Mind Devouring Bug is his?” Han Weiwei curiously looked out of the window, becoming slightly distracted. What the valuation of the Mind Devouring Bug was, she was fairly certain.
At present, the auction had begun auctioning Wei Suo’s first Mind Devouring Bug.
“2500 low quality spiritual stones!”
“3000 low quality spiritual stones!”
Probably influenced by the crazed bidding frenzy between Li Honglin, Wei Suo and Han Weiwei; when the first Mind Devouring Bug was announced, the price fluctuated upwards instantly. Two bids was enough to exceed 3000 spiritual stones.
As anticipated by Shopkeeper Tian, when the Mind Devouring Bug surfaced, it instantly triggered a widespread awe amongst the audience. The Mind Devouring Bug’s exterior could be refined into a concealment type magical robe; moreover, that sharp bone within its mouth could be used to craft an offensive yet concealment type artifact, causing opponents to be unable to defend against it.
Yet after the declaration bid of 3000 low quality spiritual stones, the restless crowd lost their greedy fighting spirit as they could only slurp on their saliva.
No matter how great an object was, it was still dependent on another’s purchasing capacity.
“3500 low quality spiritual stones!”
“4000 low quality spiritual stones!”
After the series of bidding shouts, the competing parts were left with two esteemed guests within the honorary boxes.
The two were obviously cultivators who desired the Mind Devouring Bug, and obviously were of pretty high status. Having seen the auction list, after a mutual exchange in pricing, one party purposely retreated from raising the price. Once the next Mind Devouring Bug had once again shocked the crowd, the cultivator that didn’t acquire the Mind Devouring Bug previously directly used 3800 low quality spiritual stones to acquire the second Mind Devouring Bug.
Although the two esteemed guests had some form of tacit understanding and didn’t spark a bidding war, selling off the two bugs for a total of 7800 spiritual stones caused Wei Suo to be exceedingly pleased already.
With the previously earned 4000 spiritual stones, along with the 3800 spiritual stones; there was still a required 300 spiritual stones as formality fees. Moreover, after the 30 percent remittance to Shopkeeper Tian, based on the two Mind Devouring Bug, Wei Suo was at least richer by over 3500 spiritual stones. Adding away the two magic robes along with the artifact spirit ‘Aokiichthys’, he probably still roughly had a 2000 low quality spiritual stone income.
After witnessing the auctioning of his Mind Devouring Bugs, Wei Suo didn’t have anything else he wanted as he directly left the auction hall with Han Weiwei. Following her towards the said ground used for testing artifacts and techniques.
“You really have confidence?” Nangong Yuqing secretly asked Wei Suo as they followed Han Weiwei towards the direction of the Precious Treasure Pavilion. To Nangong Yuqing, she felt more assured with the rule prohibiting the usage of artifacts. Because the threatening might of artifacts were huge and battle resulted in grave dangers, devastating injuries may occur for both parties. Moreover, they were both Divine Sea Stage level 5 cultivators. If they were only using techniques, she could still step in to help. It was just that Nangong Yuqing was very clear on Wei Suo’s current cultivation technique as well as his skill techniques, which were pretty ordinary. Hence, she felt rather apprehensive that Wei Suo might really become Han Weiwei’s slave for a month.
“60 – 70% I guess.” Wei Suo faintly smiled.
“60 – 70%?” Observing Wei Suo’s current matured look, Nangong Yuqing felt rather curious in her heart.
“What confidence, 60 -70%? This brat actually has relations with the Precious Treasure Pavilion?”
What Wei Suo and Nangong Yuqing didn’t realize was that when they walked out of Lingyun Estate with Han Weiwei, a cultivator wearing a bamboo hat was already sneakily tailing them.
This cultivator with the bamboo hat covering his face was wearing an ordinary cyan colored attire. It was indeed that Liu Zhongzhou, the Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator that was previously threatened inside the cave.
“Precious Treasure Pavilion artifact and skill technique training place?”
As he sneakily tailed them, Liu Zhongzhou witnessed Wei Suo, Nangong Yuqing and Han Weiwei marching into a turquoise painted hall building. As though pretending his stomach was unwell, he dashed into the small alley behind the Turquoise hall.
For Liu Zhongzhou to commit such an act, it was indeed to eavesdrop on the relationship between Wei Suo and Han Weiwei.
In actual fact, Liu Zhongzhou had been stalking Wei Suo around Spirit Peak city. Black Fiend had tasked him to thoroughly investigate Wei Suo, which was something he found logical as well. How could an unknown little loose cultivator be able to defeat so many Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivators. If later on after silencing him and he actually had a powerful backing behind him, then Black Fiend would naturally have to take in the consequences.
Furthermore, Black Fiend had only given him a 1 month time-frame; when this Wei Suo cooped-up himself within the Heaven Grade Residence to cultivate, half a month had flown by and Liu Zhongzhou was urgent to death. He even purchased an artifact – Parrot transmission shell used specifically to eavesdrop others. During the auction, he finally managed to hear Wei Suo’s voice. But the auction restricted artifacts, thus he was completely unable to hear what Wei Suo was chatting to others about.
Hence, he could only wait patiently outside the auction hall, waiting for Wei Suo and Nangong Yuqing to leave. Yet what he didn’t expect was that the young mistress of Precious Treasure Pavilion Han Weiwei had walked out with them. Moreover, from their behavior, it seemed like he was rather familiar with her. ‘Perhaps he really had a huge backing?’
There wasn’t any unique restriction within the special room for testing artifacts and skill techniques. Using his Parrot Transmission shell, he could secretly tap into Wei Suo’s conversations.
Feigning he needed to take a massive dump, Liu Zhongzhou immediately fished out his Parrot Transmission shell after hiding in the remote back alley. Infusing his true elemental energy to activate it, he placed it by his ears as he started eavesdropping.
Yet the next moment surprised him. At the other end of the alley, another middle aged red attired cultivator similarly snuck in; imitating his exact actions with the Parrot Transmission Shell.
Liu Zhongzhou and that red attired cultivator simultaneously stared at each other blankly.
If Wei Suo managed to catch a glimpse of that red attired cultivator, he would definitely be stunned. Because that red attired cultivator was the same sword trained cultivator who snatched his Earth Furnace room previously.
It was clear that he was the same as Liu Zhongzhou, trying to eavesdrop on Wei Suo, Nangong Yuqing and Han Weiwei.
As Liu Zhongzhou and the red attired cultivator were staring blankly at each other, Han Weiwei’s voice suddenly reverberated through their Parrot Transmission Shell. “Hooligan, I’ve already stripped, now it’s your turn to strip yours.”
With Nangong Yuqing inside as well, had the relationship between the young missy of Precious Treasure Pavilion and Wei Suo actually reached such an extent?
In Liu Zhongzhou’s mind, an image formed depicting 1 man and 2 women. After being stunned for a moment, both their expressions changed as they hid their Parrot Transmission Shell; disappearing towards their separate ways.
The same moment the two disappeared, another cultivator coincidentally happened to pass by the alley. While in the turquoise hall, Han Weiwei was currently frowning at Wei Suo with disgust. “I just don’t want your outer shirt to be dirtied, instead I see a dudou inside. This sick bastard.”
“Are you happy now?” Wei Suo’s face turned red slightly. “Aren’t you just scared of me hiding any magic treasure? Whatever, we’ll all just wear your Precious Treasure Pavilion’s ordinary clothes for battle. If you’re still worried, I can always strip naked for you.”
“Yuck! I’m afraid after seeing such repulsiveness, I won’t be able to eat for a year.” Han Weiwei scoffed. Then she directed towards a Precious Treasure Pavilion disciple and ordered. “Get him a set of clothes, and let him wear it.” From this, it could be inferred that this little lass, Han Weiwei, was indeed rather cautious.
