Chapter 53: Are These Enough?
Inside the Huang family mansion.
“Yi Er, so, how’s the situation?”
Huang Tai who was sitting in the seat honor, asked his son.
“Haha, father, their customers still haven’t received the weapons that they ordered a long time ago. They even started a commotion in front of the Mu family’s weapons shop. Three of Mu family’s herbal medicine shops have also closed down due to the shortage of supplies.”
Huang Yi said with a laugh.
“Hehe, so, are you satisfied with the results? I promised you that I wouldn’t let them off the hook so easily.”
Huang Tai laughed and said coldly: “The Mu family even tried to cover the incident up. An Nan city is quite a big city, I don’t think they can stop the news from spreading.”
“Father, you once said that the Mu family has support from the main family. Won’t they seek revenge if they found out that we were the ones who did it?”
Huang Yi frowned and asked.
“Hehe, the Mu family is currently in a critical state, and I’m sure that their entire family will be wiped out sooner or later. So, judging from their current dire situation, they won’t be able to provide any backup to the branch family for the time being. Besides, our family is supported by the Shang Guan family as well as the North King. Without any evidence, they will never find out who the mastermind behind all this was. After wiping out the Mu family, we’ll have to think of a way to destroy the Wang family as well. If we succeed, the whole of An Nan city will be our territory.”
Huang Tai said coldly with a laugh.
“I see. Father, you’re indeed a wise leader. Haha, Mu Feng, when the Mu family is destroyed, I will definitely kill you. A life for an arm!”
Huang Yi said, his eyes gleaming with hatred and anger.
In the main hall of the Mu family mansion, Mu Hai, a few Mu elders, and Uncle Fu sat in gloomy silence.
“My Lord, there have been several uproars in front of a few Mu family weapons shop. If we don’t deliver them the weapons soon, we will have no other choice but to refund them.”
A middle-aged man dressed in yellow sighed deeply and said.
“A few of our herbal medicine shops have also closed down due to the shortage of goods and supplies. Our customers are now losing their faith in us, and they have started buying their goods from the Huang family as well as the Wang family. If this situation continues, we won’t have any customers anymore.”
A Mu elder said.
Mu Hai closed his eyes and remained silent, as he didn’t know what to do either.
“It seems that we have no choice but to close down the herbal medicines shops for the time being. However, we must deliver our customer’s weapons, or else we will have to pay them a hefty sum of money. My Lord, if we really can’t think of another way, I suggest that we borrow a batch of weapons from the other two families first.”
Uncle Fu said.
With his eyes still closed, Mu Hai chuckled and said coldly: “Borrow? You can’t possibly believe that they’re willing to lend us a batch of weapons, right? They are eagerly waiting for us to close down our shops and give out refunds, so they definitely won’t lend us anything. Besides, I’m sure that one of the two families was the mastermind behind this robbery incident. If only we had some evidence… ”
“What should we do then? If we can’t deliver the weapons on time, we will have to pay them back 10 times the original amount!”
The others frowned.
“You guys want some Yuan Items? I have them.”
At this time, a clear voice rang out.
A muscular young man dressed in black robes walked into the hall and said calmly, with a childish, yet determined, look flashing on his face.
“Little Lord Feng.”
The others got up from their seats, clasped hands, and bowed towards him.
“You don’t have to be so polite, Uncle Hai, dear Mu elders.”
Mu Feng clasped hands and said with a smile: “I have some Yuan Items, but I’m not sure if there are enough.”
“Little Lord Feng, we really appreciate your kindness, but we are short a whole batch of weapons, not just one or two.”
Mu Hai sighed deeply and said.
Mu Feng smiled and didn’t say anything else. A light shone on his finger, and he waved his hand.
Clang! Clang! Clang…!
A series of metal clanging sounds rang out. To everyone’s surprise, one weapon after another appeared in the hall! The weapons shone faintly in the light, and there were about 20 of them!
Everybody was stunned. They looked at the Yuan Items on the floor with their mouths agape.
These weapons were not just ordinary weapons, as one could see that there was a wave of Yuan energy surrounding them. These were Yuan Items!
“Wh-what on earth? Where did you get so many Yuan Items?!”
The crowd was stunned at first, but after a split second, they were overjoyed.
“Are these enough?”
Mu Feng asked. This was the end result he got after spending many days carving in the penetralia.
“O-of course! It’s enough!”
A Mu elder looked at the pile of Yuan Items and said excitedly: “Although there are a few Yuan Items that don’t meet the specifications, most of them are exactly what we wanted. This time, even if they demand a refund, we won’t suffer great losses anymore.”
“Haha, this is great! Little Lord Feng, you’re really our savior!”
The crowd was overjoyed. Mu Hai snapped back into the present and asked: “Feng, why do you have so many weapons?”
Mu Feng smiled and said: “That’s a secret. Hehe. Dear Mu elder, which type of Yuan Item do we still need? Please find the respective molds and send them to my courtyard.”
“We’re still short of a long spear, a knife, and a sword.”
The Mu elder replied. Suddenly, the Mu elder and the others seemed to have figured something out. All of them looked at Mu Feng in shock.
“Little Feng, do-don’t tell us that you actually know how to carve runes? Yo-you’re a chiseler?!”
Mu Hai asked in astonishment.
“Well… Yeah, you could say so. I learned about chiseling when I was in the main family.”
Mu Feng said hesitantly.
Mu Hai said excitedly: “If that’s the case, you’re saying that these Yuan Items are…”
Mu Feng nodded.
“Hahaha, this is awesome! There’s another chiseler in our family!”
“Such great news! This is great news indeed!”
Upon hearing his words, the crowd went wild. There wasn’t even a single chiseler in the whole An Nan city. All the Yuan Items sold in An Nan city were made outside of town.
A wave of relief swept across Mu Feng when he saw that everybody was overjoyed. He knew better than anyone that a chiseler was indeed very rare and held a high rank in society.
“Little Feng, does the main family know about this?”
Mu Hai asked in excitement.
Mu Feng shook his head. After calming himself down, Mu Hai said to the crowd in a serious tone: “We mustn’t tell anyone that Little Lord Feng is actually a chiseler. Do you understand?”
The crowd firmly nodded their heads. After saying that, Mu Hai said to Mu Feng with a hint of embarrassment: “Little Feng, we will pay you back for these Yuan Items according to their market price. However, it’ll take some time, as we’ll need to sell them and settle our customer’s payments first.”
“Haha, you don’t have to pay me back, Uncle Hai. We’re all Mu family members. Of course I have to help my family when it needs it. These Yuan Items are free of charge, but you have to give me some more weapon molds, as I can’t afford to buy anymore.”
Mu Feng said with a laugh.
“Thank you for your kindness and help, Little Lord Feng!”
Everybody was touched by what he said. Compared to the other Mu disciples who only knew how to flaunt their power and status, Mu Feng was a role model for the family.
“We can’t agree to that, Little Feng. Chiseling is a tough and strenuous job. Uncle Hai can’t possibly just let you do all the work without getting anything in return. How about this, we’ll pay for the cost of weapons and provide you the weapon molds that you need as well. When we sell the Yuan Items, we shall have a 70/30 profit split. You’ll take 70%, and the family will take the remaining 30%.”
Mu Hai said.
“Erm, I agree to the first part, but a 70/30 profit split is way too much. How about this instead, we’ll split it 60/40, where the family gets 60% and I get 40%. Yeah, let’s do that. Uncle Hai, I’m going back to my room now, I haven’t had a good night’s sleep in a long time.”
With a wave of his hand, Mu Feng turned and left the hall without waiting for Mu Hai’s reply.
Mu Hai and the others were deeply touched when they looked at Mu Feng’s tired back and the pile of Yuan Items.
“My Lord, it really is a blessing to have a disciple like Little Lord Feng. Our family is blessed indeed.”
Uncle Fu exclaimed.
“Yes, it indeed is a blessing. With a disciple like him, our family will no longer be on the verge of despair!”
Mu Hai said determinedly.
