Chapter 72: So What? We Are Richtards!
“Xiaobao, don’t obey that old fellow. He has always been so brutal,” Xi Hong was a good old man. Naturally, he did not want Hong Xiaobao to become a cruel person like Meng Xianji. Xi Hong then smiled and said, “About the Rainbow Aroma Ore, you don’t have to worry about not getting it. As I said earlier, the useful material lies within the impenetrable shell. You can just buy it for a low price since people shouldn’t know its uses.
This old fellow has such a thick skin. However, I like his idea. Hahaha!
What Xi Hong said was right. Robbing wouldn’t be a good idea for a prince. Spending time to locate this item would be troublesome as well. The best idea was to just buy it when someone gets it. Since buying this item would require some money, Hong Xiaobao naturally needed to start earning some. Before leaving his room, Guan Juxiong shouted loudly, “Your Highness. Your Highness! Somebody reported that the plaque of our Grand Alliance has been made! Using pure gold! Pure gold!”
Hmm the plaque of my Grand Alliance is done? Well that was quick! I can’t wait to have a look! “Where is it? Bring me there to have a look!” Hong Xiaobao suddenly got excited.
“Over here,” Guan Juxiong said as he led Hong Xiaobao to the hall. Upon entering the entrance, Hong Xiaobao could see an enormous plaque lying on the ground. Everyone stood around it and could not stop talking.
“Aiya, this plaque is so domineering! And it belongs to our worthy Highness!” “Of course it would be domineering. This thing costs sixty thousand silver taels!” “Not only that, this is made using pure gold!”
“Hehe, let me have a look.” Hong Xiaobao said as he proceeded forward smilingly.
The plaque was around 5 meters wide and 2 meters long and was shone upon directly by sunlight. At the exact center of it, there wrote two words, ‘Grand Alliance’ which had the carvings of dragon and phoenix all-around. The imposing manner was exceedingly high!
This is exactly why I wanted to use pure gold! Hahahah.
“Keke, Xiaobao. I didn’t really like the idea of using pure gold just for the plaque. However, it is indeed stylish!” Even Fang Xinghan was surprised by the looks of it. He then smiled and said, “You are indeed a rich and spoiled prince. Just by looking at this plaque, I can feel your wealth! Not to mention the words ‘Grand Alliance’. This is indeed a perfect match!”
“Of course!” Hong Xiaobao was extremely satisfied. “This is exactly what I want! Fame and reputation come first, before everything else! We have to let everyone in the world knows. We are richtards! We don’t lack of money! In fact, all we have is money!”
Qingqing then chuckled and said, “Brother Xiaobao, you are indeed an experienced person! Then when are we going to hang the plaque up?”
In the Jiang Hu, one could not hang plaques up at a random time. One could only do it on the day of sect establishment.
Hong Xiaobao touched his chin and thought for a while, “Alright, we’ll hang it up now and cover the words with red silk. I would need Uncle Fang’s help for choosing an official date. Hehe.”
En, choosing a lucky date based on the ecliptic definitely required a lot of experience. And that was when Hong Xiaobao needed to rely on Fang Xinghan.
“Choosing a lucky day based on the ecliptic is actually rather easy.” Fang Xinghan pinched his fingers and counted for a while. “Three days later will be a good time to do so.”
“Hmm, okay then. Since I have nothing else to do these days, I guess it will do.” Hong Xiaobao nodded.
Hong Xiaobao wanted to get it done as fast as possible.
“After officially launching the sect, we’ll have to send out Hero Cards to invite the sects near us for a celebration.” Fang Xinghan said. “At that time, we’ll just have to arrange some performances and prepare a feast, that’s all. Oh yeah, at that time, your first batch of disciples are very important. Allow me to be frank, now that your martial skills are still lacking, I’m afraid that taking in the first batch of disciples would not be an easy task.”
What Fang Xinghan said was right. Who would want to join a sect with a 2-star elder?
“Hehe, don’t worry about it. It’s not as hard as you think.” Hong Xiaobao was being really confident. “We have to do things one step at a time.”
Everyone nodded together since it may not be a good idea to stress themselves out.
“Then shall we hang the plaque up now?” Everyone was really eager about it. Aiya, we’ve worked our asses off for a good few days. It’s finally time to hang the plaque!
“Yeah, of course!” Hong Xiaobao raised both his hands up high and laughed. “Brothers, we, the Grand Alliance, are going to hang the plaque up now! Is everyone ready?”
“Yeah we’re ready!” Everyone shouted loudly out of excitement. Even Qingqing shouted with them.
To Qingqing, this sect was so small that it was only the size of a mosquito. However, her heart was touched for her participation.
Hong Xiaobao then shouted, “Since we’re ready, open the door right now!” This was the first time everyone had seen Hong Xiaobao behaving in this manner. It was pretty funny and made everyone laughed really loudly.
After the guards opened the door, they started to hang the plaque up. Since Guan Juxiong had the greatest strength amongst them all, he was responsible for carrying the immensely heavy plaque on his back. Everyone tried to help out. Some went to search for a ladder while others prepared stools. After suffering for 2 hours, they finally managed to hang the plaque that was covered in red silk up!
Once the plaque was up, the passersby stopped and were curious about what the strange and mysterious board was.
“Look, look! What’s going on? I can barely see what’s inside. Wait, is it made from pure gold?!”
“Wow I think you’re right! Placing such a big piece of gold outside? Won’t it get stolen?”
“I think nobody would dare to do so. This is the ninth prince’s building! If someone were to attempt to steal it, that person is just asking for death! However why did His Highness make such a giant plaque?”
At this moment, someone with a Jiang Hu background figured out the situation. “By the looks of it, the ninth prince is setting up a new sect. Why would he hang such a gigantic plaque up otherwise?”
Another person then said, “Yeah, His Highness is indeed setting up a sect due to a bet. He said that he wanted to develop a sect to a major scale within 3 years. Who knows if he can actually do that or not? Setting up a sect is not that easy!”
The previous person then asked, “Really? The ninth prince is setting up a sect? What will this sect be called then? Isn’t he a cripple? How is he going to recruit disciples if so?”
“How would I know? However, the ninth prince is highly intelligent. He definitely has plans in mind. All we have to do is to observe!”
