Chapter 456: The Supreme Member Card
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
The whole city was shocked again by the news of the Supreme Member Card.
Many people were so angry that they were on the verge of spitting blood.
We just obtained the Diamond Member card, and now you want to ask us to obtain a Supreme Member card!
We don’t need this fucking Supreme Member card!
You should be thankful if we even go shopping in your store. But you’re asking us to buy this membership for one hundred million Spirit Stones! And only twenty people are able to enjoy this privilege!
Apparently, numerous people had been scared away by this membership system stipulated by Xu Que.
“One hundred million Spirit Stones? Is he insane?”
“Does he still want to do business here?”
“Nobody will even buy that membership. The total sum of one hundred million Spirit Stones is too formidable!”
“Yes. Anyway, I can’t afford this membership.”
“Tell him to go to hell!”
Countless people were rejecting the idea of this Supreme Membership.
However, Xu Que had never expected everyone to be able to enjoy his Haagen-Dazs ice-cream!
After all, the production difficulty of this Haagen-Dazs ice-cream was far beyond what Xu Que had originally imagined.
As a three-star chef, he could handle many delicacies!
However, the System had told him that the Haagen-Dazs ice-cream was almost a four-star food, and thus the production difficulty level was very high.
He could spend ten thousand Acting Tough Points enhancing his chef level to four-star chef. Alternatively, he could only make ten ice-creams per day. If he tried to make more than ten per day, his soul would suffer permanent damage!
This was definitely something Xu Que would never do. Why should I spend ten thousand Acting Tough Points upgrading my Chef skill to four-star? Just to earn some Spirit Stones? Nobody would be willing to do that!
No, I will never do that!
I can only make ten ice creams a day, right? No problem! The cost is high, so the price will also be high!
For example, I can set up a one-hundred-million-member club… then I can introduce an ice-cream hotpot for which the price is over ten million Spirit Stones! In this way, I will be able to earn over two billion back in a short time.
Therefore, whilst others had been studying his burger recipe and challenging him on it, Xu Que had finished the production of ten Haagen-Dazs Ice-Cream Hotpots in silence.
The outward appearance and taste of his ice-cream were unique in this world.
However, Xu Que was surprised by the effects of his Haagen-Dazs ice-cream.
‘One can only consume this ice-cream once in their life. It can refine a person’s Spiritual Root, change one’s natural gift and even create a Spiritual Root of a different nature!’
“My Gosh! This is against nature! I’m still young, but this is really awesome! I really can’t imagine how awesome I will be when I am an adult!” Xu Que started to shout blusteringly.
This Haagen-Dazs Ice-Cream was much more powerful than the Ice Lolly!
Without any hesitation, he wrote down the effect and hung it outside the door. The next moment, he went to the entrance and sat in a chair with his legs crossed. Then he started to smoke a cigarette confidently.
At this moment, the onlookers outside his store were still complaining about the high price of the Supreme Member card and had resolutely rejected the membership.
But the next moment, all people were dumbfounded!
Could his ice creams be used to change the Spiritual Root?
All at once, all the onlookers were badly scared. Their expressions changed to masks of terror.
In the World of Cultivators, cultivation and Soul Strength could be gained through efforts after birth. Bottlenecks could be broken by elixirs.
However, the Spiritual Root was determined congenitally. Whether a person had a Spiritual Root gift for cultivation was determined at birth.
The Spiritual Root was what differentiated cultivators from ordinary people.
Ordinary people could not be admitted to cultivation sects to practise cultivation because they hadn’t been born with the necessary Spiritual Root to access this opportunity.
However, the Spiritual Roots could also be distinguished into those that were good and those that were bad.
In the Five Nations, the most powerful Spiritual Root was the Celestial Spiritual Roots. The bearers of this kind of Spiritual Root were endowed with brilliant gifts and extremely fast cultivation. After one year of cultivation, these people could accomplish achievements that cultivators with normal Spiritual Roots would need ten years to attain.
Moreover, ordinary cultivators only had one Spiritual Root. Geniuses with two Spiritual Roots were so rare that only one could be found every one thousand years, or even every ten thousand years. Also, these geniuses would certainly be admitted to large sects after their emergence.
Therefore, Spiritual Roots were key to a person’s gift.
In addition, no matter how hard one tried, it was very difficult to change one’s Spiritual Root after birth.
Under this premise, people would naturally be frightened by the food that had been made by Xu Que, which was able to refine one’s Spiritual Root.
This was almost an act from God. It was after all something that could only be accomplished by a God!
“It is awful! This can’t be real, right?”
“If it really could refine the Spiritual Root, the bigshots will buy it even if the price reaches four hundred million or even five hundred million Spiritual Stones!”
“And this ice-cream can maybe even create a Spiritual Root of a different nature. My God, how… could this be possible?”
“Is General Zhuge a God? How can he create such an incredible food?”
“If this is real, this ice cream would be able to outperform all elixirs in this world!”
“That goes without saying!”
“As far as I know, many bigshots in the Imperial City are not very gifted. Their current cultivation skills have been realized through the accumulation of numerous elixirs. If their Spiritual Roots can be refined, the Spirit Stones saved on buying elixirs in future would definitely exceed several hundred million!”
“I’ve also heard that some young people of rich or official families are not gifted. Their elders are worried that nobody will be able to take over their family businesses in future. Now if this marvelous food created by General Zhuge really is effective, people will fight for it no matter how high the price will be.”
“It’s a pity we still don’t know whether or not it is effective. The threshold is too high. Supreme Membership can only be obtained by spending one hundred million Spiritual Stones!”
“I don’t know whether some bigshots will try it.”
The onlookers were talking, voices full of surprise.
But these people could only stand there and watch, for they couldn’t afford a Supreme Member card. One hundred million Spirit Stones was too much for ordinary people.
However, the ordinary people had underestimated the wealth of some bigshots.
For the bigshots, one hundred million Spirit Stones was a high price, but they would still be able to afford it. Most of the time, they would only need to consider whether the price was worthwhile.
Now, the marvelous ice-cream created by Xu Que had naturally startled many bigshots.
After a while, many bigshots arrived personally with many storage rings, which would naturally be filled with Spirit Stones. It seemed that they were fully prepared.
However, these bigshots didn’t spend their Spirit Stones on a Supreme Member card impulsively. They wanted to wait and see. If someone tried the ice cream and proved its effect, they would obtain the member card without any hesitation!
The purported effect of the ice-cream was too marvelous. It was very difficult for people to believe it was real. People were afraid of being cheated.
However, all these bigshots had had the same idea. No one dared to step out first. For a moment, the situation fell into a stalemate.
“General Zhuge, General Zhuge, please save my granddaughter!”
At this moment, an anxious shout came from the rear part of the crowd.
An old man of the Infant Transformation Stage elbowed his way forward to greet Xu Que excitedly.
Behind him, there was a young girl. It seemed the girl was quite shy, introverted and bashful, for she kept her head lowered.
When the onlookers saw that old man, they were terrified and couldn’t help but gasp.
