Qin Haodong grinned bitterly and said, “I can promise, but I can only try my best.”
He knew very well that if the treatment failed, ghost fetus could not be removed from Qi Waner’s body. Once a ghost slave was formed, it could achieve Covert Power cultivation.
And now he had not completed the Foundation Realm, and still stayed at the level of ninth realm of Overt Power. It was really difficult for him to kill a master of Covert Power level.
“I believe you!” Qi Waner said.
“All right! But there’s no way to cure you now. You go back with me. I need to make some preparations in advance.”
The present situation did not allow him to choose, and he could only try his best to treat her. But in order to get rid of ghost fetus, he must first depict the Taoist Talisman.
“Well, I’ll go with you.”
Qi Waner said without hesitation. Seeing that she agreed, Shi Kuohai had no reason to stop her.
Qin Haodong said goodbye to Nalan Jie and took Qi Waner back to his home.
Qi Waner brought nothing but a laptop with her.
Qin Haodong asked, “Do you like computers in particular?”
“Yes.” Qi Waner nodded and said, “Since I got this strange disease, I have suffered too much cold treatment in school. Later, I simply dropped out of school.
“My family has prepared a computer for me to study and entertain at home. One day, I came into contact with computer hacker technology, maybe that’s because I looked like a hacker, and in the hacker technology, I am very talented.”
Speaking of this, she laughed at herself and continued, “In real life, I can’t do anything about my strange disease, but in the cyberspace, I am an almighty king.
“Three years ago, I ranked first among all underground hackers. Any website in the world can be regarded as the backyard of my home whenever I want.”
Speaking of her field of expertise, she had an exciting light to her eyes.
Qin Haodong was shocked slightly. He did not expect that the girl who was trapped by the disease had such achievements in the field of hackers.
Then he thought that Daddy Security Company was full of talents, but it had no workers in the computer area. If Qi Waner could be recruited to the company, it would be absolutely appropriate.
But this should be talked later. The urgent matter now was to deal with her ghost fetus.
It was midnight, and Qin Haodong chose a room for Qi Waner to live in. Then he went back to rest too.
After getting up the next day, Qin Haodong found that the golden color on Qi Waner’s head had been swallowed up again. The size of the spot became smaller from a coin yesterday to a dime coin.
If they didn’t take the time to remove the ghost fetus, the complete demonization into ghost slave would come true in one or two days.
Letting Lin Momo send the little fellow to kindergarten, as the health care doctor, he was absent from work again today.
After having breakfast, Qin Haodong left his home. He wanted to buy something like cinnabar, yellow paper, and others stuffs back and make the Taoist Talisman suppress ghost fetus.
Soon, he bought all the things in a grocery store, but when he looked at them, he showed a bitter smile again. With his present cultivation, most powerful Taoist Talisman could not be depicted. He had no confidence in trying to suppress the ghost fetus in Qi Waner’s body by the ordinary Taoist Talisman.
“If only we can have several powerful magic instruments, then our chance will be greatly increased. But nowadays, it is very difficult to buy magic instruments. Where can I buy them?”
Walking along the road, he thought about this. Suddenly, he saw an antique street in front of him.
“Go inside and have a look. Maybe I’m lucky enough to meet a suitable instrument.”
Thinking of this, Qin Haodong walked towards the antique street.
As the saying went, Gold appeared in troubled times and antiques in prosperous times. As now they were in Peacetime. People were more and more interested in antiques.
The recent TV stations’ newly launched treasure identifying programs had further contributed to the popularity of the antique market. Although today was not in the weekend, the antique market was still bustling.
Some people came here to look around and see if they could find some valuable items which were ignored by others. Some people took the pots or cans left by their ancestors here to sell, dreaming of getting rich overnight.
In fact, the rate of this kind of thing was not much higher than the probability of winning the lottery of 5 million yuan. Qin Haodong could see that 99% of the antiques on the market were fakes. Occasionally, one or two items with some Spiritual Qi were also expensive. It was impossible to buy a good one at a low price.
But that was not what he cared about. What he was looking for was something that could be used as a magic instrument. Obviously, that was harder to find than antique. As he had already walked half of the street, nothing new presented.
He did see things like compasses, dusters, peach swords, but they were all modern crafts and had no Spiritual Qi at all.
He was walking forward when a middle-aged man, about 40 years old, came up and said, “Brother, what are you looking for? Do you need any help?”
Looking at the middle-aged man, Qin Haodong waved his hand and said, “No.”
But the middle-aged man did not give up. He followed and said, “You may not know me, little brother. My name is Niuer. I am a famous appraiser in this antique street.
“I’ve been here for more than ten years. I know all the treasures in the stores of this street. As long as you tell me what you want, I’ll take you there immediately. And I don’t want a penny. How about it?”
“An appraiser?” Qin Haodong looked at Niuer and smiled. He thought that the tricksters and cappers nowadays were keeping pace with the times. They even gave themselves such a decent title.
He thought about that Niuer must be very familiar with this antique street anyway. He might as well listen to his introduction, which would be better than aimless strolling. Anyway, with more than 500 years of experience as Emperor Green Wood, it was impossible for these people to cheat him.
Niuer was a capper and had always lived by cheating others out of their money. His specialty was to observe others’ features. He immediately saw that Qin Haodong was interested. He quickly followed him and said, “Bother, you have to believe in my vision. As long as you follow me, you can not only buy treasures without useless effort but also avoid buying fakes.”
Qin Haodong said, “Well, since you’re so enthusiastic, please help me.”
Niuer repeatedly said, “Of course, of course, I am a kind man and love to help others.”
“I haven’t had a good time recently. I want to buy some old things like a peach sword to drive away evil spirits at home. Do you know which store has that? Let’s make it clear beforehand that I don’t want anything that comes out from the assembly line.”
Hearing this, Niuer immediately clapped his chest and said, “My little brother, you have found the right person. I know a good peach-wood sword in a shop. I heard that it was a valuable thing used by Master Zhang Daoling, the ancestor of Tian Shi Sect.
“The shopkeeper has a bit of trouble at home recently. He is in a bad need of money. Otherwise, he is reluctant to sell it.”
The Peach Sword used by Zhang Daoling? Qin Haodong certainly didn’t believe it, but he didn’t have a goal anyway. It didn’t matter if he followed him.
Then Niuer led the way and took Qin Haodong to a store in the Antique Street.
The Spirit of Qin Haodong was so powerful that he immediately noticed that there were two or three people in the crowd following him. It seemed that these cappers were really professional and cooperated with each other tacitly.
Soon, Niuer took Qin Haodong to an antique store called Ju Bao Zhai. The store looked very big and there were all kinds of antiques in it. But Qin Haodong glanced at them and found they were all fakes without Spiritual Qi.
The shopkeeper was a fat man who weighed more than 100 kilograms. When he saw Qin Haodong, he greeted him warmly. “What do you need, little brother? There are so many treasures in my store, and they are all good things.
“I have bowls used by Qin Shi Huang, teacups used by Li Shimin and even urinals used by Empress Dowager Cixi.”
Before Qin Haodong could speak, Niuer said, “Don’t talk nonsense, Fatty Wang. This is my friend. Don’t play those tricks that you used to fool laymen.”
“Oh! He is your friend, why don’t you say it earlier? Then we’re all friends.” Fatty Wang showed a very cooperative expression and said, “What do you want, little brother. Since Niuer’s friend is my friend, I will give you a suitable price, and guarantee you the quality.”
Niuer said, “My little brother wants to buy something to ward off evil spirits. What about your peach sword used by Zhang Daoling? Please take it out and show it to him.”
Fatty Wang immediately showed an expression of embarrassment and said, “Niuer, to tell you the truth, something urgent happened in my family the other day, so I took out the sword and wanted to sell it for money, but now it’s over, and I don’t want to sell it.”
Qin Haodong knew that he didn’t need to speak at all at this time. He just needed to watch them perform quietly.
As expected, Niuer said indignantly, “Fatty Wang, we should pay attention to integrity in business, you said you wanted to sell it, how can you go back on your words? And since my little brother has come, you can show it to him at least. Maybe he doesn’t like your stuff at all.”
Well, wait a minute, I’ll take it.” Fatty Wang made a painful expression and turned into the inner room. He quickly took out long stuff wrapped in yellow cloth.
He carefully placed his thing on the counter and opened the yellow cloth to reveal a bronze peach sword.
The length of the peach sword was about one meter. It had a dull color and simple patterns. It looked absolutely ancient stuff. The handle of the wooden sword was engraved with the words “Tian Shi”.
Qin Haodong took the peach sword and looked at it. He admired in his bottom mind that these people did a very good job in making fake old items. He could not feel any Spiritual Qi on the peach sword, or he would really think it was an old unearthed item.
But now he could see clearly that this thing was a high-level fake, so, he instantly lost the interest to play with them and put the peach sword back on the counter.
Niuer said, “What do you think, little brother? This peach sword is absolutely a good thing used by Zhang Daoling. Its magic power is limitless. Everything will go as you wish at home.”
“I’m not very interested. I will consider it.”
Qin Haodong knew a little about the rules of the antique market. You could give up the item if you didn’t like it, but you shouldn’t say your true idea that it was a fake.
Niuer turned to Fatty Wang and said, “You just make a suitable price. If you can, our little brother will buy it. If you can’t, you can take it home and keep it.”
“Well… All right then,” Fatty Wang said with a painful look, “To tell you the truth, this peach sword was unearthed. I bought it from other people for 30,000 yuan. If my little brother likes it, I’ll not earn any cent from him; he can take it away directly for 30,000 yuan.”
“What do you think, little brother? I can assure you that Fatty Wang’s price is absolutely fair.”
Qin Haodong smiled and shook his head. He didn’t want it even by 30 yuan, let alone 30,000 yuan.
He was just about to leave when an old man in traditional Chinese garments came up and looked at the peach sword in surprise and said, “May I have a look of that?”
