The tightly closed door of the Tian Liu Chamber of Commerce opened suddenly. Several men dressed like merchants walked out hurriedly and headed for the outskirts of the market from different directions.
After half an hour, those people returned. Looking at each other in consternation, these pale-faced people stepped into the Chamber of Commerce immediately without speaking.
In the meeting hall, several bigshots didn’t leave, and continued chatting and drinking tea in their seats.
Suddenly, several people came up and whispered to them.
The next moment, all the big shots were totally shocked and dumbfounded.
They did not only overreact—they completely freaked out.
“Are you sure you asked all stores?” the big shots asked those people.
“Yes.” Those men nodded simultaneously.
“You mean all stores in that street have been purchased by that guy?”
“Are you sure the entire street was purchased?”
The big shots fell silent again.
Their faces were full of terror.
This guy is really an opportunist! And he is also quite bold to purchase all the stores in a street!
“He is really a tough guy! And his actions are quite decisive!”
“Right! There are several hundred stores in that street. He is really very brave to purchase them all!”
“It seems we have underestimated him again. From the very beginning, he was planning this land acquisition for a long time, and hadn’t just been concerned with business!”
“Moreover, his actions resemble a coup, and cheat everyone!”
“I have to admit this guy is really an unprecedented wizard who is adept with both the pen and the sword!”
“That’s enough! Stop praising him! Now my heart is bleeding. The entire street has been devoured by that guy! That’s a profit of over ten billion Spirit Stones!”
“Eh, it is said that previously the average price of the stores in that street was around two to three million Spirit Stones. However, I am afraid the current price will be over one hundred million for each store!”
“What’s more, once that street is developed into the center of the market area, the price for one store will at least reach five hundred to six hundred million Spirit Stones!”
The big shots couldn’t help but sigh.
At last, one of the big shots sighed wryly. Pulling the front of his robe, he exclaimed, “This is really annoying!”
At the same time, in the Imperial Palace, the Water Empress was so impressed that she could barely stay in her seat.
“He is able to refine one’s Spiritual Root and even create a new Spiritual Root! How many incredible things are contained in the head of this little chap?”
She was so amazed. She had never expected Xu Que to make marvelous foods like these!
Even an eight-star alchemist from overseas wouldn’t be able to succeed like this!
The maidservant beside her said, “Your Majesty, this way, General Zhuge can earn billions of Spirit Stones from those Supreme Members, and he can easily pay off the remaining balance to the Tian Liu Chamber of Commerce.”
“Right! That will be fine.” the Water Empress nodded her head with a faint smile.
Actually, she also worried that her help would make trouble for Xu Que, who would suffer from Karmic Retribution at last.
Now the difficulties had been solved by Xu Que himself, which reassured her a lot.
However, thinking of the stinky tofu and the roasted chicken wings that had been prepared by Xu Que previously, the Water Empress was now itching for a chance to try Xu Que’s new delicacies.
She had tried the burger, which was very delicious, and she had even made a breakthrough to the next cultivation level. However, this made her even more curious about the tastes of the french fries, the cappuccino, the vanilla latte and the Haagen-Dazs ice cream.
“I kind of want a try,” the Water Empress murmured to herself with a faint smile.
On the same day, Xu Que was still very busy.
After issuing the member cards to the twenty Supreme Members of the Haagen-Dazs Ice Cream store, Xu Que earned a large sum of Spirit Stones.
In recent days, he had already earned over five billion Spirit Stones.
However, he spent over one billion purchasing all the stores in the street. Now he had over four billion left. After deducting the balance he owed to the Tian Liu Chamber of Commerce, he still had two billion at his disposal.
“I can’t stop halfway! And I should keep my word about building a commercial city.” After thinking for a minute, Xu Que decided to continue with his original plan.
After checking several stores, he started to perform large-scale renovations.
Within a day, he had opened several McDonald’s and KFCs in the street. Meanwhile, he had also attracted investments by leasing stores to the merchants of magical artifacts and elixirs. In this way, he could share in the profits while doing nothing.
Those store owners who had sold their stores to Xu Que for a very low price were very regretful now.
Especially the owner of the magical artifact store, which had been turned into the first McDonald’s branch. He kept thumping his chest and stamping his feet everyday at home. He was so regretful that he told everyone that he had refused Xu Que’s proposal of cooperating and sharing profits together!
‘A first-class idiot’ was the only comment people made about him.
In the evening, after finishing the renovations, Xu Que led the troops of the Snow City eagerly to the street. Then he personally hung up a giant plaque.
The plaque glittered with several giant words, which read ‘Wanda Mall of the Exploding Heavens Faction’.
The street was crowded with onlookers who were totally shocked by the sight.
Wanda Mall of the Exploding Heavens Faction?
Is he going to occupy the whole street?
It’s only been a few days!
He has become the owner of the entire street!
“Ahem! Hi, everyone!”
At this moment, Xu Que cleared his throat and took out a loudspeaker. Then he jumped onto the plaque and prepared to give a speech.
“First, please allow me to show my gratitude to your support during this period! As everyone knows, I, Wang Sicong… ahem, I, Zhuge Liang, am a caring and virtuous merchant. I am a conscientious entrepreneur! Therefore, in the following days, McDonald’s and KFC will launch high-quality ice creams at low prices, so that my friends who hadn’t been able to obtain Supreme Memberships can also enjoy the delicious ice cream! Of course, this kind of ice cream is not as magical as the original Haagen-Dazs type. However, this ice cream is also effective!”
He paused. “What? A friend over there just asked what the effect of the ice cream provided by McDonald’s and KFC will be. That’s a pretty good question! I can tell you that the ice creams provided by McDonald’s and KFC are made of pure natural materials without any additives or effects! Yeah, you heard that right. They don’t have any effect!”
All the onlookers were totally confused!
Hearing that Xu Que was about to introduce high quality ice creams at low prices, all the onlookers had been so excited.
However, before they had been able to get too excited, they had then heard that the ice cream would have no effect at all!
It doesn’t have any effect, right? Shit! Why are you so happy? Are you kidding us?
“However…” at this moment, Xu Que changed the subject suddenly.
Everyone got a shine in their eyes. Did he say ‘however’?
It’s okay. It seems we will be pleasantly surprised by this ‘however’.
“However, besides the ice creams, McDonald’s and KFC will also introduce several upgrade products, which have all kinds of magical effects! The prices are moderate, and will be affordable to ordinary people! Details will be introduced during tomorrow’s product launch!”
After saying that, Xu Que jumped up and disappeared into the horizon, turning himself into a dark shadow.
Countless onlookers were standing completely confused in the street.
A product launch?
Holy shit, Zhuge Liang. Can’t you tell us all the details at once? Why do you need a fucking product launch?
