Chapter 457: Let’s run a prize draw

“Crikey! How on earth has this old fool managed to get here?” a man exclaimed.
“This guy once served as the Prime Minister for two terms, and helped two former Emperors govern the Water Nation!”
“Hasn’t he retired already? It is said that he failed to break the limit and enter the next level. Apparently he is going to die soon.”
“Why on earth hasn’t he bought a burger? Just one, and he would be able to get into the next level and live a longer life.”
“He is a bit different from other retired officials. For all these years, he has always been a very decent man and donated all his Spirit Stones to the poor and needy. It would be impossible for him to buy a burger that costs five hundred thousand Spirit Stones of low quality.”
“Why is he here then? Does he want to save his granddaughter? We all know that she has not got the Spiritual Root and cannot practise cultivation.”
“What’s worse, she has been suffering a serious illness that cannot be treated. If she were able to practise cultivation, she would be able to not only enhance her body, but also recover.”
“He cannot possibly become a member without paying the Spirit Stones required, you know General Zhuge is a cruel man.”
“You are quite right. Also, as a businessman, he must be honest. He has said that he will only serve those with Supreme Membership, which means he cannot break his word!”
“Besides, the General Zhuge has got a nickname, the Evil Devil. He always bragged about being a man with principle but it’s all just lies, he is just a greedy person.”
“I am sorry but I do think you’d better go back. You cannot get in without the Supreme Membership card.”
People shook their heads. They all sympathised with the old man but could do nothing about it.
After all, being a Supreme Member was not an easy thing.
“F*ck! What are you talking about?! I am still here, how dare you speak ill of me while I am still here?” shouted Xu Que angry as he suddenly stood up from his chair.
They are really audacious! They even dare to speak ill of me while I am still here! Am I a greedy person? No I am not, I am a decent man with a good heart.
Then, Xu Que began to smile.
“Everyone, since today is the opening day, let’s run a prize draw and whoever wins it will get a Supreme Membership card for free! Does anyone want to have a try?”
Hearing this, everyone was surprised.
Getting a Supreme Membership card for free?! Are my ears deceiting me? The Evil Devil has changed… into a good person? Anyway, I must have a try.
“General Zhuge is really generous! I want to have a try!”
“Count me in!”
All of a sudden, everyone raised their hands and began to shout.
Xu Que smiled.
“I am glad that you are all so active about this! Five, four, three…”
“… Two, one!” everyone shouted together.
Everyone was desperate to have a try, hoping that they would be the lucky one.
However, when Xu Que finished counting the numbers, he pointed at the old man in the crowd.
“Let’s congratulate this old man for getting the Supreme Membership card for free. He can now enjoy the Big Box Family Meal of the Ice Cream Hot-pot for free. Please come in!”
People at present were stunned.
Xu Que walked towards the old man, smiling.
With everyone looking at him in surprise, he led the old man and his granddaughter into the store.
The door slammed shut.
What the f*ck! Zhuge Liang, go f*ck yourself! This is the prize draw you were talking about? You did not even run a draw! Are you playing with us?!
“Fine, I knew he wasn’t really a nice man!”
“I never thought he was having us on earlier!”
“Anyway, at least that old man gets a Supreme Membership card.”
“It turns out he is helping the old man!”
People shook their heads and cast their eyes into the store.
Xu Que had decorated the store in a very modern style and the wall was made of glass, so people could see what was going on inside.
The old man and his granddaughter were still shocked and had no idea what was going on.
Xu Que led them into the store and asked them to sit at a table. Then he brought out a box sealed with ice and scooped out a few colorful balls of ice cream.
Seeing this, everyone standing outside the door was confused.
“Is this ice cream?”
“It looks like it’s just made of some ice crumbles!”
“That thing can nourish and refine one’s Spiritual Root? No way!”
“Wait, do not forget that his granddaughter hasn’t even got a Spiritual Root.”
“Is it possible that she will gain a Spiritual Root after she eats that? Is that really possible?”
“Judging from the burger as well as the coffee he has made, I think the ice cream can definitely help one nourish and refine their Spiritual Root… but it would be impossible to create one for someone who was not born with it.”
“I agree with you.”
“He is just putting a show.”
“Let’s focus on the old man instead. Although he is not very gifted, he might make a breakthrough once his Spiritual Root is nourished and refined.”
If it hadn’t been for the effects of the burger and the coffee, they would never have believed that ice cream would be able to nourish and refine one’s Spiritual Root.
Meanwhile, inside the store, Xu Que had laid an ice cream hotpot in front of the old man and his granddaughter.
Seeing the pot, the old man and his granddaughter were stunned.
The old man was particularly shocked, as he had only meant to try and see if General Zhuge would show him some pity. But he had never thought that he would actually win a Supreme Membership card without even participating in a draw.
He was even more surprised that he had been brought into the store by Xu Que himself, and that this pot was now in front of him…
Xu Que was being very gentle and warm-hearted.
Is he really the same Evil Devil who likes to loot people’s houses and kill people without blinking an eye? No way, I must be mistaken.
“Don’t be nervous, just pretend you are at your own home. Please have a taste. You two are the first to even enter store. Eat as much as you can, I can give you more if this is not enough, and it’s all free.”
Since the old man had been a high-ranking official before, Xu Que thought that helping him would not count as a loss.
Hearing this, the old man and his granddaughter showed their gratitude immediately.
“Thank you so much, General Zhuge!”
“I own you a debt, regardless of whether my granddaughter gains a Spiritual Root or not.”
Xu Que waved his hand. “Do not be like this. Since you have been chosen as the lucky winners, you can eat as much as you can. Hey, young girl, let me get a scoop for you.”
He then scooped a bit ice cream out, and prepared to feed her.
The young girl flushed. “Thank you! Brother Zhuge, I can do it myself.”
… I am not Brother Pig, I am a handsome man!
The young girl opened her small mouth and carefully ate the ice cream. The next minute, a ray of light appeared inside her mouth.
