Ch178 – Rich and Overbearing
Theres nothing in this world that cant be solved by throwing a pile of money.
If there is, then throw two piles of money.
This was really in-line with Su Mos style he absolutely wouldnt waste any additional effort on matters that could be solved with money!
Yan Tianhen sighed with emotion, Incredible!
Lin Xuanzhi looked askance at Duan Yuyang, Youve met with Yuan Tianwens parents so soon?
Duan Yuyang also cast a sidelong glance at Lin Xuanzhi and chuckled disapprovingly, What nonsense. Uncle Su didnt actually tell me this.
Then how come you know all the details about this? Yan Tianhen obviously didnt believe him.
Duan Yuyang was also somewhat puzzled and clicked his tongue twice, Ji Yunwei, that rascal, actually told me all this. Its so strange; how could he know this much?
Lin Xuanzhi understood once he thought about it.
Ji Yunwei is a beast tamer. I heard that he keeps a kind of bee that can both understand and learn human language. They can infiltrate everywhere and its difficult for others to discover them. Perhaps this kind of bee found out about it.
After listening to Lin Xuanzhis conjecture, Yan Tianhen and Duan Yuyang both revealed a so its like this expression.
Duan Yuyang spoke thoughtfully, Old Lin, dont you think that that Ji Yunwei is really a busybody? He doesnt even specialize in selling news. Its a waste of talent!
Lin Xuanzhis eyes fell on something beside Duan Yuyangs left ear. I see a bee by your ear.
Duan Yuyang twisted his head to look and indeed found a four-winged bee hovering in midair beside his ear.
Damn it, he really is a busybody!
Who could have imagined that the Ji familys young master would be this kind of person?
Yan Tianhen was just about to stretch out his hand to pinch the little bee when suddenly, a shadow leapt from Yan Tianhens side like a flash of white lightning and killed the bee with one slap.
Hu Po smugly flicked his tail. He wore an expression asking for praise.
Yan Tianhen awkwardly retracted his hand and touched his nose. He asked innocently, Dage, Ji Dages bee, is it expensive?
Yan Tianhen also couldnt stop himself from laughing. After a while, he gradually stopped. Dont know what Han Yurans situation is like right now.
Duan Yuyang also withdrew his smile and held his chin. His Dantian Sea was wasted, his cultivation dropped to Refining Qi Second Layer, and his soul force has also retrogressedWell, his Dantian Sea originally used to be complete, so he must have relied on using both his spiritual qi and soul force to mutually promote each other when he cultivated in the past. Now that his spiritual qi is lacking, the impact on his soul force must be very great. Simply put, hes become a complete waste.
Duan Yuyang swept Lin Xuanzhi a glance, More thoroughly than you were.
Anyhow, Lin Xuanzhi only started to cultivate his soul force after his Dantian Sea had been destroyed, so his soul force had nothing to do with his spiritual qi, which made the essence of his soul force extremely pristine. Before he reaches Teal Stage, he will not be affected by the Dantian Sea at all.
Han Yuran was different. He most likely couldnt even make low-grade magic tools anymore.
Yan Tianhens expression was cold. Back then, when my Dages cultivation was wasted, not only did he secretly scheme up all kinds of methods to get my Dages money and take advantage of him, but he also spread word that Lin Xuanzhi was a waste everywhere he went. Whats more, he even let the people from Tyrant Martial Hall deliberately lure my Dage to compete in that kind of dirty competition. Now its due to his own fault that the Dao of Heaven has shifted directions. Dage, wouldnt you say so?
Lin Xuanzhi nodded, Indeed, all things have cause and effect, and he could be said to have suffered retribution from his own karma.
Lin Xuanzhi originally wanted to leave Han Yuran alone until after he had returned to Profound Sky Sect and deal with him then, but he didnt expect such a surprise halfway down the road, which caused Yuan Tianwen to take care of Han Yuran for him.
However, speaking of the previous life, Han Yuran didnt have as terrible an impact on Lin Xuanzhis life as he had on Yuan Tianwens.
After all, in the last life, Duan Yuyang died when he was less than 200 years old, and he never saw Yuan Tianwen again in his entire life. Yuan Tianwen himself was plagued by heart demons, which caused his cultivation to stagnate at a certain stage, and he ultimately died alone.
Breaking apart a marriage was tantamount to desecrating someones grave, an absolutely unforgivable offense.
This time, Yuan Tianwen neatly dealt with Han Yuran in such a simple manner, which put an end to the karma that he had with Han Yuran, and everyone got what they deserved.
Yan Tianhen gazed at Duan Yuyang as he blinked, Yuyang Gege, are you happy that this fellow who pretended to be you has suffered retribution?
Whats to be happy about? Duan Yuyang gave a wry smile, Now I feel that Yuan Tianwens heart is actually very cold and cruel. Han Yuran was still a person whom he protected as his fianc for such a long time, how can he waste Han Yurans cultivation so whimsically
He provoked Yuan Tianwen with this kind of crazy joke and still wants to come out unscathed how can that be possible? Lin Xuanzhi swept a glance over Duan Yuyang, Do you really think that Yuan Tianwen has a good temper?
Duan Yuyang, .
How can he have a good temper?
What part of Yuan Tianwen was good-tempered? He was the young master of the Yuan family ever since he was young and was the typical dad has power and mom has money kind of child. His entire life had been smooth-sailing so far, and his position in the Yuan family was outstanding and unsurpassed. No one dared to provoke him, and he could be said to be a little overlord. Its just that his temper had become more restrained in recent years. His essence was still that of a foul-tempered and prideful young master.
Han Yuran had thoroughly touched Yuan Tianwens reverse scale and suffered the consequences of his own actions.
When the competition resumed today, Yuan Tianwen did not appear in Profound Sky Sects spectating location. Duan Yuyang swept a glance over his empty seat but his heart felt pretty calm.
Nothing special happened on the second day of the competition besides a Foundation Stage First Layer cultivator from a second-class family accidentally killing another second-class familys Foundation Stage First Layer cultivator during their match.
Lin Yan, who chose to continue issuing challenges, somewhat unexpectedly defeated the second-class Zhang family from Blue City and successfully elevated the Lin familys status to rank 42nd.
Lin Yans successful challenge increased the Lin familys fame. After all, only the Lin family, a rare flower among third-class families, chose to continue and challenge a second-class family after already obtaining the pass to advance to the next round of the competition on the first day.
The youth from the Zhang family gave Lin Yan a vicious glare when he came off the stage and promised fiercely, Just you wait!
Lin Yan gave him the middle finger. Ever since he was young, the thing he was least afraid of was other peoples threats.
Lin Yan withdrew as soon as he saw some benefits. He didnt continue to draw lots to challenge and withdrew directly instead.
From beginning to end, Yuan Tianwen never appeared.
The most popular round of the martial arts competition in the Hundred Families Gathering was the third days competition.
In accordance with the rankings, the bottom fifty families compete first. After the first days competition ends, the families ranked from 51st to 60th can compete for the 21st to 50th positions on the second day, while the third day is reserved for the top five families that successfully emerged from the grueling competition on the second day. Those five families would then compete with the remaining twenty first-class families.
As for the publicly-recognized elite families on the Five Continents, they wouldnt even appear in the normal rankings. There will always be a separate ranking for these eleven families at every Hundred Families Gathering, and they will compete separately as well.
After all, an elite class familys power was comparable to that of a major sect, and the number of pupils in the family could reach thousands or even tens of thousands. It would be all too easy to find pupils who meet the Hundred Families Gatherings requirements, so other families couldnt possibly compare with elite families in the competition.
Everyone from the Lin family had already finished competing, and the one with the best score was Lin Yans 42nd place.
Lin Zezhi straight-up withdrew from the second days competition. He had already obtained the entry pass to the next round, so preserving his strength was the most important thing now.
Of course, this was already the Lin familys best performance out of the past few Hundred Families Gatherings.
Lin Xuanzhi was very satisfied. Lin Liuchun was very satisfied. The Lin familys people, from top to bottom, were probably also very satisfied with this score. After all, for the first time, the Lin family finally had three people who advanced to the second rounds competition, including Lin Yaer.
Lin Yans excitement still didnt abate even when he stepped down from the platform. After all, his opponent was a Foundation Stage Second Layer cultivator, which was one layer higher than his own level.
Xuanzhi Tangxiong, its all thanks to your Rocking Sky Fan. Lin Yan went to return the fan he borrowed from Lin Xuanzhi.
But it was unexpectedly rejected by Lin Xuanzhi.
This fan can be thought of as your reward. Lin Xuanzhi explained.
Lin Yans eyes lit up, and he wasnt humble about it either. He accepted with a smile, Then many thanks to Xuanzhi Tangxiong.
The Rocking Sky Fan leaned on the side of an attack weapon and was also capable of generating wind, so it could add an excellent bonus to Lin Yans fire-element attacks and raise his attack power by a whole grade. For Lin Yan, this was an excellent weapon well-suited to him.
He didnt think that Lin Xuanzhi would so casually gift this away with only a sentence.
Bubbles of envy arose within the other Lin family members hearts when they saw this, which gave rise to a sense of jealousy, but there was nothing they could do about it. After all, the relationship between Lin Xuanzhi and Lin Yan was very good.
Both Lin Dong and Lin Yao regretted that they didnt pick the correct choice and side with Lin Xuanzhi back when Lin Zezhi and Lin Xuanzhi were quarreling. Now, it seemed that Lin Zezhi and Lin Xuanzhis formerly-tense relationship showed signs of easing up, and there was no more animosity between them, but they, the two little shrimps who followed behind Lin Zezhi, still had to suffer.
Lin Yurou felt a little envious. Xuanzhi Tangdi, youre really attentive to pupils from the side branch.
Lin Xuanzhi swept a glance over her and replied lightly, Side or main branch, theyre all Lin family members. Theres no need to distinguish too much.
Lin Dong gathered around Lin Xuanzhi and smiled fawningly, Then are there any suitable magic weapons that we can use?
Lin Dong also won a match yesterday, only he had won due to luck. His opponents cultivation was much worse than Lin Dongs own, and he was also very young only twelve years old. When Lin Dong continued to challenge others, he was knocked off the platform.
Lin Xuanzhi took out several wrist guards from his storage bag. The Rocking Sky Fan was a magic treasure that I crafted in the past, which happened to be compatible with Lin Yans techniques. As for the others, I did not specially refine relevant equipment for them. However, these Precious Jade Wristguards can be used to defend yourself. You should take one each and divide them amongst yourselves first.
Lin Dongs sharp eyes saw that the Precious Jade Wristguards were actually high-grade magic tools, so he immediately smiled as he took one and put it on his wrist. He said happily, Many thanks to Xuanzhi!
Lin Zezhi also took one and studied it carefully. He couldnt help but sigh in admiration, Indeed, youre still the most incredible one. I have the utmost respect for craftsmen now.
Lin Yurou picked up a light pink Precious Jade Wristguard, which she liked very much. She carefully wore it on her wrist. Duan Yuyang stared so hard that his eyes were about to pop out. He was almost shocked speechless. High-grade magic tool, you really casually gifted so many just like that. How do you expect me, the Young Master of a first-class family, to conduct myself then?! Your actions are clearly pulling aggro upon yourself!
As for you. Lin Xuanzhis smile didnt completely reach his eyes. Its enough to just directly throw money. Its because I dont have money that I can only give magic treasures. Youre rich and overbearing, so just give them the money to buy it for themselves.
Do you think this is easy to buy? Duan Yuyang rolled his eyes. You craftsmen really are terrifying. You dont even leave any paths open for others to survive on anymore. If this kind of wrist guard is sold on the market, then theyll be worth thousands of gold at the very least. Where can I get so much money?
The pupils of several families nearby all looked to this side one after another. They couldnt help the admiration, envy, and hate that sprang up within their hearts why couldnt their young masters be craftsmen?
The young masters of those families saw that and couldnt help but smile wryly.
They would like to reward their families disciples like this, but they lacked both the resources and the skill, so they were unable to help, no matter how much they wanted to!
Shortly afterwards, news that Lin Xuanzhi gifted each Lin family pupil who participated in the competition a high-grade magic tool, the Precious Jade Wristguard, spread throughout the entire Sky Peak City, and Lin Xuanzhi once again became the subject of enthusiastic discussions.
