Chapter 12 : “Wall of Wonders”

Listening to Tian Can words, Hong Xiaobao could only sympathize with Ye Jinning. He didn’t take him seriously anyway. But the issue was that now he was connected with his Nine Grandfathers. Therefore his chance of to get away was becoming thinner and thinner

Oh Ye Jinning you’d better hope for the best !

Hong Xiaobao has entered the Medicine Herb Shop with Yun Caixiao. As soon as apothecary saw Hong Xiaobao he came to greet him polietly “Ninth Prince your highness doesn’t visit us frequently, please quickly sit down ! ”. After that he yelled at his apprentice “Where are your eyes ? Can’t you see that NinthPrince has visited us, why haven’t you given him a chair yet ?”.

“I’ll do it now ! ” Young apprentice quickly moved two chairs. One for Hong Xiaobao and one for Yun Caixiao. He didn’t bring one for Ye Jinning.

“Ha ha, good!” Hong Xiaobao smiled, and said ” Yo, go grab some medicines for me”. Hong Xiaobao didn’t know what kind of raw materials Tian Can needed, so he simply said “Bring me each type of medicine, 5 pounds each” While saying that he left 10 thousand taels of silver banknote on the counter.

Yeah, Tian Can will need these materials. They would be used as a base for Yun Caixiao’s medicine.

When the pharmacist heard Hong Xiaobao he began streaming with sweat as he asked cautiously “Ninth Prince your highness, is it possible that you want to open a medicine shop ?” In his medicine shop, alltogether there was 5 pounds of each medicine, meaning that Hong Xiaobao was basically buying the whole shop !

“Opening a medicine shop ?”. Hong Xiobao quickly understood “Do not think too much about it, i just want to play around with some medicine”.

“Does this cripple Hong Xiaobao want to practice alchemy ? Does he really think that alchemy is as easy as rolling a log ? If it were that easy then would those pills sell for tens of thousands of silver ? ”. Though Ye Jinning.

Yun Caixiao was also very curious, as she asked in a low voice “Xiaobao, can you refine pills?”.

“Uh, no I … ” Hong Xiaobao has rubbed his chin thoughtfully. Tian Can said to procure some materials, but he didn’t specify what for. Oh to hell with it, he’ll buy first, ask later!

“You don’t want to buy materials for a refining ?” Yun Caixiao knitted her brows, but did not say anything. She thought to herself, “Hong Xiaobao this cunning man, god knows what wicked scheme he has thought about this time”.

“Since Ninth Prince his highness needs the materials fo medicine, then this lowly servant shall prepare the delivery for Ninth Prince ”. Being approached by the Ninth Prince was a once in a life time chance for this man and he would never let it slip by.

“Okay, i’ll leave it up to you to decide”, Hong Xiaobao left money back on the counter while also saying “When the times comes, and you find this amount insufficient, then come to me for more”. He said as he stood up while telling the guards “Guys, we are going out!”

Leaving Medicine Herb Shop, Hong Xiaobao looked around for a while, and then went to a Beast Material Shop nearby.

Speaking of Best Material Shops, one must say that demonic beasts of this world were really bizzare. In this world, in remote mountains and ancient forests one could often encounter powerful demonic beasts. Demonic Beasts power levels were also divided into 10 ranks, just like human cultivators. They were really powerfull, but their population was low, so if someone were to hunt these savage beasts, then that would be equal to a windfall. The Demon Crystals, it’s fur, skeleton were all precious goods, and higher the rank of a beast, the higher the price.

When Hong Xiaobao entered Beast Material Shop, he was instantly welcomed by the boss respectfully, “Welcome Ninth Prince Your Highness ! This lowly servant does not know why respected Ninth Prince has come to our shop today.”

Hong Xiaobao liked playing with different things, so he was one of the old customers of this shop. As soon as shop owner saw him near the door, he knew that today he gain a lot!

“I just wanted to have a casual look around”, Hong Xiaobao said while grinning. As he looked around for a while, silver white animal skin of about two square feet caught his attention. He immediately asked, “Boss, how much money for this animal skin for?”.

“This!” Shop owner quickly explained to Hong Xiaobao, “Ninth Prince surely has a great insight ! It’s really commendable! This is a fur of Second Tier Silver Tassel Bull ! I can guarantee that it won’t spoil for hundreds of years, it has good resistance to both fire and water. It would be a top grade material for a sword sheath ! Normally it’s price would be around 1800 taels of silver, but seeing that Ninth Prince is our old customer, for you its 1500 taels”

“Good, pack it up for me” Hong Xiaobao nodded with satisfaction. This best quality good, would be a perfect material for new pair of white high heels. If i ask Little Sister Caixiao to wear a white gown, she would literally become a fairy!

At this moment Yun Caixiao actually knitted her brows and said “How come you want 1500 taels for this? Second Tier demonic beast is not that difficult to kill”. She has practiced in Thunder Sound Pavilion before, and has descended to the deep mountains, so she didn’t understand the society’s matters very much.

“Is this Prince’s wife ?”, Shop owner has quickly greeted her with a laugh, and explained to her, “This Second Tier demonic beast isn’t fierce in itself, but you also should know. If a Third Tier demonic beast runs from a mountain, it could easily destroy whole village. Therefore various countries have populated within huge cities with large city walls, which are used to defend against demonic beasts.”

“For example our Chijing City, beside accommodating 1 million people, has built walls which are stretching up to ten thousand li [1] ! These Walls of Wonders are as big as several hundred smaller cities, and are used to protect several million acres of crops. This Silver Tassel Bull is impossible to find inside our Walls of Wonders. The only way to obtain it is to go outside walls to hunt it down, that’s why the price is so high [2].

As soon as boss said that, Yun Caixiao also finally understood it.

Demonic Beasts were no weaker than martial artists of this world. Thankfully their wisdom was not as high as humans. In other words, co-existence between humans and Demonic Beasts was almost not possible. Unless one fostered it from small, so it could peacefully live with humans, Demonic Beasts were usually tamable.

Therefore humans could only trap themselves in cities with huge walls, and cover large fertile territories. Otherwise they could only wait to be slaughtered like a cattle.

If it’s like his, then Silver Tassel Bull’s skin price would be understandable

“So it’s like this!” Yun Caixiao nodded gently, and no longer spoke.

Nearby Ye Jinning sneered with disdain and said “We really live in two different worlds ha ha ha ! This measly Second Tier Demonic Beast is as good as a pile of shit in the eyes of Thunder Sound Pavilion disciples. Unexpectedly it is counted as a treasure in this countryside ha ha” He said flatteringly to Yun Caixiao, “Sister Caixiao, wait until we get back, i’ll ask my father to give you as many treasures as you wish. This kind of third-rate goods won’t even count as a treasure in your eyes anymore !”

He spoke up to this moment, and looked extremly provocative at Hong Xiaobao

Seeing his overbearing attitude, bunch of guards immediately lowered their heads, and the shop owner hurriedly tried to back out “Ninth Prince, please be considerate for this lowly servant!”

Are you kidding! One was Ninth Prince, this Chiyun Empires most loved person. The other one was Thunder Sound Pavilion disciple, his status was evidently not low. This was a showdown between two local tyrants, if one walked not in time, that would literally be asking for death!

[1] I’m sure you already know how much that is but just in case . 1 li is ca. 0,5 Km, so just divide number of Li’s by two and you get your distance in kilometers. As for Imperial Systems user that would mean dividing Li’s by 3,218688. But because nobody has enough time for that, that would equal around 3106 miles. Seriously America, and India apparently, wth Y U NO USE Metric System (no offence intended)

[2] These walls of wonder are something like wall Maria, Rose and Sheena from AoT. At least i understood them as such. But this world is not as dangerous as AoT’s world. At least in this novel there is at least a chance of surviving.


It’s a trend to take your grandfather along with you when passing through to another world, but we have kind of been cheated—have you ever experienced buy one get eight free? Hong Xiaobao: “This opponent is a bit formidable. All you old-timers, hurry up and save me please! If you don’t appear, then this prince is going to get angry!” Demon Emperor Meng Xianji: “Mockers, kill! Those who defy me, kill! Strong people, eat! Valuable treasures and materials, eat! Good equipment, steal!” Wine God Xiao Sanshao: “Why must you be so brutal? If there’s something wrong, can we not just all sit down and have a nice chat? I’ll teach you how to taste wine, youngster!” Medicine Immortal Tian Can: “You guys chat first. My condition today isn’t very good, so I’ll go rest first…. If you want to concoct some medicine, tell me after I wake up….” Godly Craftsman Xi Hong: “Didn’t I just upgrade your equipment yesterday? What are you afraid of? Attack, youngster! Isn’t that right, Chen Nan?” Formation Spirit Chen Nan: “En…. How about you go ask Mao Yue.” Beast Emperor Mao Yue: “Today’s sunshine is too bright. I’m recalling that cat of mine who died because of menstrual pain….” Hong Xiaobao: “Can you guys not be so misleading?”

Okay, f*ck this shit. Dropped. This author is henceforth on my blacklist. Oh, and yes, I know you’re happy that I’m not going to be around anymore so that I can’t enlighten you on what’s wrong with this novel, ruining the fun of people who loves retarded authors’ virgin fantasy imaginations on how a relationship should work.
