On the other hand, at the end of the street!
The Second Prince had learned that the Eighth Elder of Sky Incense Valley had arrived, and was no longer interested to stay here and continue wasting his breath on Xu Que.
With a wave of his hand, he commanded, “Men, follow this prince to Yun Bao Restaurant!
After that, he turned around, ready to leave.
Suddenly, however, a voice sounded.
In a flash, Xu Que was darting towards the Second Prince like a shadow.
Everyone was stunned but before they could respond, Xu Que had appeared in front of the Second Prince in a blink of an eye, blocking the prince’s way!
“You… what do you want?”
The Second Prince was surprised. Apparently, he had not known that Xu Que had such an amazing movement skill, and was therefore startled.
Xu Que gave a pleasant smile and suddenly, he opened his mouth!
He exhaled a deep breath onto the Second Prince’s face!
The concentrated stench of stinky tofu instantly blew right into the Second Prince’s face.
The Second Prince suddenly felt blacking out. Everything went dark and he felt dizzy, almost passing out from the foul odor.
“How is it? Is it stinky?” Xu Que wore a contemptuous smile and winked at the Second Prince. “I’m asking you, is it stinky?”
The Second Prince’s face seemed to turn green and purple. He hurriedly backed off a few steps and yelled angrily, “atrocious, what do you want?”
The prince’s guards quickly surrounded Xu Que.
“Now what? Can’t afford to lose?” smiled Xu Que. “I haven’t stated my request and you want to leave? Not so easy!”
“Bastard!” cursed a furious Second Prince. “Obviously you’ve lost yet you still dare to contest the result. Men, arrest this evil man!”
The Second Prince was now enraged and pointed a finger at Xu Que.
Had it not been for the fact that many commoners were watching, he would have already killed Xu Que. He had only ordered his men to arrest him because he wanted to quickly end this dispute and meet up with the Eighth Elder of Sky Incense Valley!
But at this moment, a figure dashed in their direction, followed by a deep voice.
An old man suddenly appeared, wearing a somber expression. He landed gracefully on the ground.
The commoners present were astonished. Is this an immortal?
The Third Prince, Seventh Princess and the rest of princes were stunned to see the old man. Their expressions turned serious.
The Second Prince was startled as well. In a matter of seconds, he affixed a smile to his face. “Eighth Elder, pardon me for my tardiness in making you wait for me. I seek your understanding and forgiveness.”
However, the Eight Elder from Sky Incense Valley did not pay attention to the Second Prince.
His eyes locked onto the pot of oil, staring at the pieces of stinky tofu still cooking inside it. His eyes instantly lit up at the sight of the tofu!
“Hahaha… It really is that thing!”
The Eighth Elder was incredibly excited and couldn’t help but cackle at his lucky find. In a flash, he appeared before the pot of oil.
In front of the horrified crowd, he waved his hand and a piece of stinky tofu appeared in mid-air. He then sent it directly into his mouth.
“Ah, ah, ah—Eightth Elder, no! No, no, no! You can’t eat that! That thing cannot be eaten! That’s a piece of sh*t …” the Second Prince hastily cried out in attempt to stop the Eighth Elder.
The crowd felt totally shocked.
What’s the matter with this Eighth Elder of Sky Incense Valley, someone who the Second Prince had respected so much?
Has he gone crazy?
Not only had he directly rushed over to the pot of sh*t, but judging from his expression, he looked as excited as a person who had just found a piece of gold on the street.
As he took a bite, the stinky tofu’s tender juices immediately burst in the mouth of Eighth Elder. It turned into a fragrant flavor that circulated all over his taste buds.
This was also immediately followed by a slight increase in his soul strength!
“Good, good, good!”
The Eighth Elder was now in a joyous mood and praised the food by saying the word ‘good’ three times, each time louder than before!
All the people were completely frozen on the spot, full of horror and disbelief!
The Second Prince, the Third Prince and his group were totally confused!
They knew the identity of the old man. He was the Eighth Elder of Sky Incense Valley and his cultivation was at Level Four Infant Transformation Stage!
But… why did this respected old man eat sh*t?
What is going on?
Are they crazy?
The royal princes and princess were floored. They could not figure out what was happening!
Xu Que immediately responded by staring and shouting at the Eighth Elder, “Stop, you old fellow! Why are there so many people who are eating and drinking without paying up tonight? I better get straight to the point—this stinky tofu costs 1,000 taels a bowl, pay up now!”
The crowd was dazed!
Buttface reacted instead and howled angrily, “fuck! Boy, what do you mean, who has been eating and drinking without paying up?”
This dog was exhibiting the typical behavior of someone who had a guilty conscience!
The crowd, however, did not bother with Buttface. They were looking on at Xu Que, speechless.
1,000 taels for a bowl of sh*t?
Why don’t you just go and rob someone instead?
Weren’t you just selling it for 100 taels a bowl? And in the blink of an eye, the price has increased tenfold? That’s f*cking ruthless!
The Third Prince, Seventh Princess and rest of princes were confounded.
They were not bothered about the price of the stinky tofu, but rather, the phrase that Xu Que had used when he opened his mouth!
This guy had actually addressed the Eighth Elder as ‘Old Fellow’?
Does he want to throw away his life?
That’s totally asking to get killed!
The Second Prince was agitated and snapped, “atrocious, how dare you show disrespect towards the Elder of Sky Incense Valley? Men! What are you waiting for? Didn’t I say to arrest him?”
The Eighth Elder quickly stopped the guards.
Under the stunned gazes of the crowd, the Eighth Elder actually squeezed out a smile and said to Xu Que, “young hero, was this dish cooked by you?”
“Crap, of course it’s me!” Xu Que shot a glare at the Eighth Elder and pointed at him. “Hey you, you should talk properly and not be cheeky. I’m telling you, it’s useless no matter how much you smile. I’m a man of my word—1,000 taels a bowl, fixed price!”
The crowd rolled their eyes and nearly fainted!
Brother, are you really saying that you’re a man of your word?
And 1,000 taels a bowl, fixed price?
Bullsh*t, we all heard you say 100 taels a bowl. Now you marked up your price tenfold, how can this be called fixed price?
However, contrary to their expectations, the Eighth Elder was not angry at all. Instead, he acted in a friendly manner towards Xu Que. “Seems like this young hero is from the Exploding Heavens Faction! I’ve heard a lot about your faction. However… this thing costing 1,000 taels a bowl… that is really absurd!”
As the crowd listened, they felt that the Elder had caught the point!
1,000 taels a bowl, that was absolutely absurd! Anyone with common sense would agree!
But the next moment, the crowd nearly fainted at the Eight Elder’s next sentence!
“I feel that the value of this thing cannot be measured by taels of silver,” said the Elder firmly. “This is priceless! Even if you sell it for 100,000 taels for a bowl, that’s still not adequate…”
The crowd felt like their chests were blocked, and had a desire to vomit blood!
These immortals are crazy!
It’s just a bowl of sh*t, what value does it have?
And that sh*t is priceless? What the heck?
Heavens, what is happening to this world?
