Chapter 44 – Every Single One of You Is…
“Have you gotten an answer?” Ye Qingwan frowned, watching Xia Fukun returning to the group.
“Yes. The eighth-grade beast in the Ming Mountain Range has gone nuts. It attacks everyone that enters the mountain range.” Xia Fukun shrugged helplessly.
“What shall we do now?” Hearing this piece of news, Chang Yuxuan’s face turned as pale as a sheet of paper.
According to their planned route, they had to go through the Ming Mountain Range to get to Odin Academy. If they chose to go around the Ming Mountain Range, then they would not be able to get to Odin Academy in a week’s time since they would have to make a U-turn back to where they came from and go around. To Ye Qingwan, it did not matter, but it mattered for the others since they would miss the freshman registration, which meant that they would not be able to be admitted into Odin Academy.
“Let’s go.” Xia Fukun shrugged.
Ye Qingwan was aware of Xia Fukun’s ability to summon two eighth-grade beasts, and she was not worried about Qingmu Xuan. However, Chang Yuxuan was here with them, and she was worried that Xia Fukun would not be able to explain the origin of the eighth-grade beast. Who knew if Chang Yuxuan would be able to keep it a secret?
“Should we reconsider?” Ye Qingwan exchanged a glance with Xia Fukun, trying to express her worry. Receiving her glance, Xia Fukun was extremely moved.
I knew that you loved me, Qingwan!
“It’s alright, let’s go.”
Xia Fukun had given this matter a thorough thought, and he was confident that he would be able to summon the eighth-grade beast without anyone’s knowledge. Unless someone deliberately stalks me, I will be able to do it in secret since I have the ability to summon beasts instantly. I could also summon them somewhere further away from me, or just deny it with all my might if someone asks me about it.
Ye Qingwan sighed and nodded. “Okay, let’s go.”
Meanwhile, Yang Yao had been listening to their conversation diligently. After learning Xia Fukun and the group’s plan, he came to them without hesitation.
“Handsome! Please, count me in!”
Looking at Yang Yao acting in a toadying manner, Xia Fukun frowned.
“Why are you going back inside the Ming Mountain Range?”
“I’m heading to Odin Academy! I have gone through this path numerous times and it has always been a safe trip. I have no idea what’s wrong with the snake this time around!”
“You’re also an Odin Academy freshman?”
Xia Fukun was slightly stunned. Schoolmate?
“Yes, you too?” Yang Yao was slightly confused. A Warrior Realm freshman? He must be aiming for the inner school! Yang Yao was aware that Xia Fukun would be considered a talent due to his age and his cultivation, but even so, it was still uncertain if Xia Fukun would be able to get into Odin Academy’s inner school!
“Hehe, such a coincidence.” Xia Fukun planned to reject Yang Yao, but since they were schoolmates, he was unable to do so. However…
“Alright, but where’s the little token of thanks?”
Yang Yao: “???”
Is he extorting me openly?
“I’m from a poor family, and I do not have assets….”
Yang Yao planned to make Xia Fukun pity him, but Xia Fukun’s reaction took him by surprise.
“Oh.” Xia Fukun laughed and turned away. “Well, sorry then.”
Yang Yao: “???”
Bro, are you sure this is how things work? Leaving just like that?
Yang Yao took out a black jade from his pocket.
“This is a treasure passed down to me from my ancestors. Will it work?”
Looking at the black item in his hand, Xia Fukun was ready to curse at the other party for fooling around with him, but the Monster Refining System’s notification cut him off.
“Ding dong! Congratulations, host! You have discovered a top-notch refinement material. You may choose to save it in the Monster Refining System or exchange it for a thousand refinement points.”
A thousand refinement points!?
Xia Fukun nearly jumped out of his skin.
The Golden Ray Python, which could have potentially entered the Heaven Realm, only gave me a hundred refinement points, and this trash will give me a thousand refinement points!?
However, Xia Fukun was not stupid enough to exchange it for refinement points. Since it was a top-notch refinement material, Xia Fukun decided to keep it in the Monster Refining System as it might come in handy in the future.
Yang Yao sighed in relief when Xia Fukun took the piece of jade. Luckily, he took it.
Even though Yang Yao’s ancestors had always said that this was a priceless treasure that was very important to the Yang family, even now, none of his elders knew what it was for. Furthermore, he tried to exchange it for spirit stones some time ago, and the other party was not even willing to exchange it for ten spirit stones. Lady Luck must be on my side! He has accepted it!
I have struck the jackpot! thought both Yang Yao and Xia Fukun.
Sadly, before Yang Yao could dance in joy, he saw Xia Fukun reaching out to him.
“What?” Yang Yao was slightly dumbfounded.
“Money! Do you think you can fool me with this? This costs a hundred spirit stones at most!
Damn it! Yang Yao cursed, but he dared not say anything more since he sincerely hoped that Xia Fukun would take him over the mountain range.
Yang Yao pulled out nine hundred spirit stones from his pocket unwillingly. He could feel his heart trickling blood.
“Great, then we will take our leave now!” Xia Fukun smiled thinly. He had struck the jackpot today.
A thousand refinement points was equivalent to ten ninth-grade beasts!
He was now standing on top of the world, and there was a message he would like to convey to the citizens of the entire Scarlet Water province.
“Every single one of you is nothing but trash!”
