“Indeed worthy of being the Mystic Tools Sect. In the entire Eastern Unicorn Continent, only the Mystic Tools Sect would willingly sell mystic class, peak-tier weapons.”
The Mystic Tools Pavilion had a reliable backer and they weren’t a regular organization, but rather the famous Mystic Tools Sect of the Eastern Unicorn Continent.
The Mystic Tools Sect was famous for their weapon forgings.
In any other sect, it was considered great to have one elite smith master, but the Mystic Tools Sect had dozens of elite smith masters. As long as they had sufficient materials, they could constantly produce mystic class, peak-tier weapons.
In almost every city of the Hundred Battle region, there would be a Mystic Tools Pavilion. Each store would sell mystic class, peak-tier weapons. Every store would display at least one, some stores had up to five.
Of course, mystic class, peak-tier weapons were of extreme price points. Of the three mystic class, peak-tier weapons displayed in this Mystic Tools Pavilion, the cheapest of them was around six million gold coins. While the most valuable one was eight million gold coins. It wasn’t exaggerating to say that they were heisting a daylight robbery.
If eight million gold coins were to be stacked up, it could easily form a golden hill.
Hearing Li Fuchen12Li FuchenMain Protagonist’s praise of the Mystic Tools Sect, the store manager of the Mystic Tools Pavilion replied with pride, “Naturally. Our Mystic Tools Sect never had a lack of elite mastersmiths . There may perhaps be a grandmaster smith in the future.”
Grandmaster smiths had an unrivaled status. In certain ways, even superior that than of a Reincarnation Realm expert. If a grandmaster smith didn’t like a sect for any reason, a single order from them would have countless sects assault that particular sect.
Li Fuchen asked, “Store manager, I need a mystic class, peak-tier treasure sword. I wonder which Mystic Tools Pavilion has one?” Li Fuchen naturally couldn’t say that he wasn’t sincerely here to by a mystic class, peak-tier weapon. If he were to explain in that way, it would undoubtedly cause some conflicts.
The store manager frowned. Without even thinking, he knew that this deal was a bust.
He replied, “Young master Chen. There are plenty of sabre and sword users in the East Unicorn Continent. If you want to get a mystic class, peak-tier treasure sword, you would most likely have to pre-order one from our Mystic Tools Sect. But I don’t know how soon you will be able to get it.”
The Chen Clan may perhaps be a major clan, but wasn’t considered much in the entirety of the East Unicorn Continent. A wait of eight or ten years was a normal phenomenon when pre-ordering a mystic class, peak-tier weapon. It was normal to wait for an entire life and still not get the weapon. After all, people with influence could easily cut the queue.
“Is that the case? Then I better go try my luck in some other cities then!” Li Fuchen acted as though he was disappointed.
“Please take care young master Chen.” The store manager saw Li Fuchen out of the doors.
Walking on the street, Li Fuchen was feeling exceptionally pleased.
This earth class weapon shard was most definitely a priceless treasure if it was brought to the Mystic Tools Sect. Selling it for millions or tens of millions of gold coins wouldn’t be a problem.
Of course, he wouldn’t do so.
‘A farmer wasn’t at fault but when he possessed a jade, it becomes his fault’. This earth class weapon shard was involved in a much bigger matter. It was best to bring it back to the Azure Water Sect and offer it to the elite mastersmith to study it. If this elite mastersmith was able to comprehend something and step into the realms of a grandmaster smith, it would help to secure the Azure Water Sect’s position in the East Unicorn Continent.
(TL note: The saying is meant that if a farmer suddenly possessed a piece of jade, it would look like he stole it and would be suspected as a criminal)
“Things of the future shall be left for the future. This earth class weapon shard can temporary be used as my trump card.”
The attack power of the earth class weapon shard wasn’t much, but it was extremely sharp. Li Fuchen tested it by injecting his qi into the weapon shard. It easily penetrated his qi protection and possessed the ability to neutralize qi. It was on par if not better than the Devil Break Arrow.
As the sky got darker, the red sunset let out its final radiance.
Gradually letting out a deep breath, Li Fuchen asked around for directions towards Leaves Burrow.
Flying Blade City was huge and had extensive roads and alleys. After walking for nearly two hours, Li Fuchen arrived at the north area.
Walking towards an alley of Leaves Burrow, Xiao Cong had just gotten back too.
With the one gold coin, he bought medicine with four silver coins and a few dozen of copper coins worth of buns and biscuits. He then bought a skewer of his sister’s favorite candied fruits. He kept the rest of the five silver coins and planned to hand it over to his sister to manage them.
Due to his frail and small body, it took him six hours just to reach the north area of the city.
His complexion was yellow and his body was lean. He had dry and cracked lips but was filled with excitement and couldn’t wait to return home.
“Oh? Isn’t that Xiao Cong? You actually bought buns and biscuits. Seems like you made some money today!” A few ruffians who looked to be twenty years of age, obstructed Xiao Cong’s way.
Xiao Cong’s eyes were alert. He immediately turned into an alley and ran.
“You little brat, how dare you run even after seeing Luo ge.”
The ruffians were furious. They chased after Xiao Cong and threw him to the ground. One of them searched Xiao Cong’s body and picked out the five silver coins.
“Look Luo ge, there are five silver coins.”
Snatching the five silver coins, the ruffian who called out to Luo ge sneered, “Luo ge shall gladly receive these five silver coins. But how dare you run when you saw your Luo ge. If you aren’t taught a lesson, wouldn’t it be disrespecting Luo ge?”
Luo ge picked up a bun to chew on while giving a stomp to Xiao Cong’s back.
Xiao Cong nearly fainted, but he who was an introvert was extremely obstinate too. He endured the stomps by biting on his lips.
“Quite stubborn, huh? This is the medicine for your sister right?!”
Luo ge looked at the medicine which was littered on the floor and stepped on them.
“You can take everything else, but don’t step on my medicine.” Xiao Cong’s eyes were flushed red.
“What can you do if I want to step on them?” Luo ge scoffed and carried on with his trampling.
Xiao Cong finally couldn’t help but have tears trickling from his eyes.
“Haha! Let’s go brothers!”
Luo ge was delighted. Five silver coins was enough for him to have plenty of good meals. It didn’t matter whether Xiao Cong and his sister lived or died.
“This sure is pathetic. Why are there scumbags like you even among the poor?” A voice echoed.
“Who is it?” Luo ge got on his guard as he looked around for the source of the voice.
Li Fuchen walked over slowly.
When Xiao Cong saw Li Fuchen, he said with agitation, “Sir martial artist, they snatched my medicine.”
Li Fuchen nodded and glared at Luo ge.
Luo ge’s legs were shuddering. How would he not know that Li Fuchen was a martial artist.
They were just average people that didn’t have any chance to cultivate. Any random Qi Realm martial artist could beat them to death.
“Great martial artist, we were just playing around with him. Xiao Cong, you can have your silver coins back. These additional silver coins are for you to buy medicine again. Great martial artist, we shall take our leave.” Luo ge and his group took out all the silver coins they had and placed it in the hands of Xiao Cong.
Luo ge thought to himself that this martial artist couldn’t protect Xiao Cong for life. He would have opportunities in the future to take revenge.
“Who allowed you to leave?”
With a wave of his hand, Li Fuchen let out a weak qi burst.
Boom, boom, boom…
Luo ge and his group crashed into the walls of the surrounding houses and spurted out fresh blood. At least half their bones were broken. Even if they were able to heal up in the future, they would still be cripples. If there wasn’t any first aid provided to them, they would most probably die today.
“Xiao Cong, let’s go.”
Li Fuchen used his right hand to vacuum and bring Xiao Cong to his side.
“Sir martial artist, my medicine is gone.”
“No problem, I have it.”
Leaves Burrow was one of the major slums in Flying Blade City. Here, the rundown houses were packed closely next to one another. One small house most probably had three generations living under one roof, making it hard to even shift one’s body.
Xiao Cong’s house was a tiny one. The length of the house was only about two meters. It wasn’t much of a difference from a kennel.
Unlocking the door, Xiao Cong pushed the door open and walked in.
There was limited lighting in the house. Apart from the bed that was made from planks, there was just this table which had a huge hole in it. At the foot of the bed were many miscellaneous items. It must be the scraps that these siblings had scavenged, thinking that they would be useful.
