Chapter 454: Knockoff of My Burger?
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
That day, a lot of spendthrift sects and families spent a lot of Spirit Stones in Xu Que’s new store.
Each of them obtained Diamond Membership and bought over ten cups of coffee each for their alchemists and equipment refiners.
In one family, an alchemist was ready for potion refining.
He was a five-star alchemist. However, the success rate of his potion refining was not very high. Basically, when he finished refining one batch of potions, he would always need to take a break, as he would have consumed too much Soul Strength during the refining process.
However, this family was facing a great battle, so a lot of potions were needed.
The whole family was worried about the potions, had been considering inviting other experts to help. However, after hearing about this magical coffee that was extremely effective for Soul Strength, they bought the coffee without any hesitation.
Enhancing one’s Soul Strength by three times was a precious thing for the alchemists and equipment refiners, even if the effects could only last for a day.
Now this alchemist was full of confidence.
“OK, bring me my cappuccino!”
The high-spirited alchemist drank up the coffee in one gulp. Then his Soul Strength rose sharply. Immediately, he began to refine his potions with fiery eyes.
Outside the Potion Refining House, the bigshots of the family nodded their heads in satisfaction.
“This Cappuccino is really worthwhile!”
“Someone go to the store and buy twenty cups of coffee with my Diamond Membership Card!”
In one sect, an equipment refiner was even tougher. After waving his hand, he drank one cappuccino and one vanilla latte right away. Then his Soul Strength increased remarkably. Meanwhile, he could split his attention between two tasks during the process of equipment refining.
All members of the sect were dumbfounded by its effects.
Similar things were happening in many other sects and families.
At the end of the day, although only a few people could enter Xu Que’s Starbucks of the Exploding Heavens Faction, the total profit of Starbucks was much more than that of his McDonald’s store.
The next day, a new sight was spotted in the Imperial City.
Young people of rich or official families bought a cup of coffee with the Diamond Membership cards of their elders. Then they started to hang out on the street, holding the coffee cup with the Starbucks logo in their hands.
Passers-by who recognized that logo were immediately moved, and started to toss envious glances at the holders.
“My gosh! Look, he is holding a cup of Starbucks coffee!”
“Incredible. His background must be formidable!”
“Someone who can afford a cup of Starbucks coffee must be extraordinary!”
People couldn’t help exclaiming.
On a street, several beautiful young girls were taking a walk.
Suddenly, one of the girls stopped. Her eyes widened. Then she started to shout in surprise, pointing at a handsome passing boy.
“Wow, look! Isn’t he a commoner? He has always been such a low-key person. I never expected him to be able to afford Starbucks of the Exploding Heavens Faction. He is so cool!”
Hearing that, the rest of the girls looked up. Soon they were fascinated by the boy’s impressive poise and couldn’t remain calm anymore.
Some young people of rich or official families were shocked by these scenes.
“What the hell? Can one be cool by just holding a cup of Starbucks coffee?”
“Go, get me Spirit Stones from home, I will also obtain a Diamond Membership!”
“Look at his arrogance! He’s not the only one who can afford a cup of Starbucks coffee!”
“Exactly, I am going to obtain a Diamond Membership now.”
Soon, another stampede of people rushed to the McDonald’s to spend their Spirit Stones.
Some people who didn’t want to wait in the queue just dropped twenty million Spirit Stones to obtain the Diamond Membership card without even waiting for the food.
The profit of the Starbucks of the Exploding Heavens Faction rocketed up instantly.
Two days had passed. One soldier of the Snow City made a rough calculation of the statistics, and realized they had made a net profit of 1.3 billion low grade Spirit Stones.
The figure was very impressive!
The same day, the Royal City was surprised by more startling news.
“My God! Have you heard that an expert, who used to be a Royal Chef in the Imperial Palace, was the one who worked out the recipe for the burger!”
“Shit! This can’t be real! Can the recipe be worked out so easily?”
“It is for real. It is said that that expert used to be a famous Royal Chef. His sense of smell and taste are very powerful!”
“It seems something big will happen! With the emergence of competitors, it will be difficult for General Zhuge to maintain his business.”
The Royal City was filled with uproar about the news. Everyone was talking about this issue.
Some young people from rich or official families stood up and said with cold smiles, “The Royal Chef has been co-invited by our Li family, Liu family and Ma family. Please rub your eyes and wait. We are about to succeed soon. When that happens, everyone will be able to eat burgers.”
“This time we have spent over one hundred million Spirit Stones and have tried numerous ingredients. Finally, success is in sight.”
Hearing that, people became even more excited.
Are they on the verge of success?
My gosh! It seems that we will all be able to eat burgers soon!
But these families are too bold. Aren’t they afraid of being searched and having their materials confiscated by General Zhuge?
“We are not afraid of him. We believe the Water Empress is clear-sighted.”
“This is a fair competition. If General Zhuge leads his troops to search our families and confiscate our properties, we will accept that! Doesn’t the Imperial City have basic justice? And who would dare to come to this city again in future?”
People from those families spoke one after another.
Finally, the Water Empress was informed of this issue. Then she summoned Xu Que to the Palace personally.
“Little chap, don’t make trouble please. When this issue is over, I will take care of those families.” The Water Empress looked at Xu Que with a faint smile. She was really worried that Xu Que would go to search their families and confiscate their properties, which would embarrass her greatly.
However, Xu Que said anxiously, “No, why will you punish them? If they want to make burgers, just let them do that.”
“Oh?” The Water Empress was stunned a bit. Why is this little chap changing his personality?
“Young lady, please be reassured, just stay in the Royal Palace. Tomorrow I will invite you to eat ice-cream. As for those guys, just leave them alone. I will also ignore them,” Xu Que said with a generous smile. Then he left the Palace.
Are you studying my recipe?
You could never work out the recipe of the Act Tough King’s burger easily!
Even if you could work out the recipe, then what?
Those effects had been enchanted by the System, and it was impossible for them to have a System.
Therefore, Xu Que felt quite assured, and wasn’t afraid of the emergence of these competitors at all!
After leaving the Imperial Palace, Xu Que also sent word.
“Someone is imitating my face. Someone is imitating my expression. Now someone is copycatting my burger! It doesn’t matter. They can enjoy their imitation. Their knock-offs are just shiny-boxes. If they can really create a burger with the same effect as mine, I will commit suicide by swallowing excrement!”
Hearing Xu Que’s words, people of the Imperial City gasped in shock, hardly able to stay in their seats.
General Zhuge is really a tough guy!
He is so confident that he is even making an oath to commit suicide by swallowing excrement!
How can he be so sure that those families won’t be able to work out the burger?
Immediately, people from those families gave their responses.
“General Zhuge, don’t be so arrogant. We will work out the recipe today!”
“In one hour, you will see the result!”
“We will never fail!”
