Chapter 588: An innocent man gets into trouble because of his wealth
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Liu Jingning just didn’t believe what Xu Que had said.
Is he planning to cheat the three big families substantially?
How could this be easy?
Liu Jingning’s eyelid twitched after hearing Xu Que’s words. After all, she had witnessed his bad conduct. He would cheat someone to death if he decided to do so.
For example, at the beginning of today’s Stone-Cutting Convention, this guy earned over 50,000 high quality Spirit Stones with some Smelly Tofu and his mouth. Then, he obtained twenty-one ancient stones and 5,000,000 high quality Spirit Stones with a miraculous instrument. Also, a lot of people who participated in the event were greatly annoyed by him.
Also, because of his brazen behavior, the people of the three big families had started to follow him.
For Liu Jingning, it was totally unnecessary for Xu Que to do so. With so many miraculous items, he could find some big auction houses to sell them. And he could definitely earn more Spirit Stones than he’d earned in this convention. It would also be safer for him and his identity would remain confidential.
However, she hadn’t expected that Xu Que was not in need of Spirit Stones at all. The only reason for his behavior today was to act tough!
There was no difference between a man who didn’t act tough and a salted fish. If Xu Que decided to keep a low profile, he wouldn’t earn Acting Tough Points. He’d encountered so many things today! For normal people, this was definitely misfortunate!
But Xu Que had really realized a bumper harvest in Acting Tough Points and Spirit Stones through these experiences. Today had been the most rewarding day for him since he’d stepped into the World of Cultivators.
Thus, today confirmed for Xu Que that, in the future, he should assign importance to simultaneously acting tough and making trouble.
“Why don’t they just come to me? It’s boring! Are they going to wait until I get out of the city?” At the thought of his plan to cheat the people of the three big families, Xu Que couldn’t hold it back anymore.
Hearing that, Liu Jingning couldn’t help rolling her eyes. Ordinary people would always want to keep a distance with the three big families. For him, the three big families were just like beautiful girls who could light up his eyes.
My Gosh! How was he brought up? How could he be so bold?
“Little brat, have you worked out the plan to deal with them?” Buttface asked. “If you have, I want to join you!”
He had also witnessed Xu Que’s tricks. Seeing Xu Que’s excited face, he couldn’t resist his curiosity and wanted to join in the plan.
It was quite rare for Buttface to be brave, so Xu Que said delightedly, “Later you are responsible for playing music! You will be in charge of this tape recorder!”
“Really?” Hearing that, Buttface was quite excited. He hugged the tape recorder in his front legs tightly.
Xu Que patted Buttface’s forehead and silently nodded. “Of course! Buttface, just work harder and you will become a great DJ in the future. And if your performance is good enough, your title will be MC Buttface, who is extremely cool and can control the microphone on the spot!”
Buttface didn’t understand the meaning of “MC” or “control the microphone.” However, he couldn’t resist the allure of the words “extremely cool.” Therefore, he immediately became overexcited.
In this way, a man and a dog walked toward the city gate with swagger. Liu Jingning stopped and pondered a bit, then she decided to follow them with a wry smile.
At the beginning, she wondered whether she should get involved in this issue or not. After all, the Utopia Faction couldn’t afford to offend the three big families!
However, after pondering it a bit, she made up her mind to follow them for she didn’t want to leave Xu Que alone.
At first, she was worried about Xu Que’s safety. Now she started to worry that Xu Que should not be allowed to stay in the East Continent alone. Otherwise, according to his style, he would definitely turn the entire East Continent upside down.
The people of the three big families followed closely.
The Elders of the Jiang Family and the Gong Family as well as the powerhouse of the Bai Family were powerful cultivators at the Void Training Stage.
Besides, many servants and young sovereigns of the three big families were also in the team, which was very conspicuous in the city.
Many people in the street made way for them. Seeing people of the three big families marching toward the city gate, the onlookers were greatly confused.
Everyone knew the relationship between the big families in the East Continent was very tense.
However, the news that the Jiang Family was connecting the Gong Family through marriages came out, which demonstrated the recovery of the relationship between these two big families.
But why is the Bai Family also in the team?
Since when are the three big families so united?
It is quite weird for them to walk together so harmoniously!
“Could it be that something precious was found?” someone guessed doubtfully.
“No! They came out from that building. The Stone-Cutting Convention just ended.”
“It is quite odd! The Stone-Cutting Convention is co-hosted by the Jiang Family and the Gong Family. Why did the hosts leave first? Where are the other families and sects?”
“Maybe a precious item was found, which made all of them part on bad terms. I noticed those big shots were very unhappy!”
Many people were guessing. Some of them even planned to watch the fun by following the people from the three big families.
Just at this moment, the gate of the building opened. The big shots of the other families and sects who participated in the Stone-Cutting Convention stepped out and then left.
Immediately, someone in the street shouted, “Breaking news! Today’s Stone-Cutting Convention ended horribly! The big families and sects gained nothing. It is said that all valuable ancient stones were bought by a young sovereign from the Exploding Heavens Faction! All the remaining stones are worthless!”
“What?” everyone was greatly shocked.
Someone in the crowd continued to shout, “I heard this young sovereign from the Exploding Heavens Faction had a miraculous item which can look through the ancient stones! With the aid of this item, he became the sole winner of this event by picking out all the high-quality ancient stones!”
“It could look through the ancient stone! How could that be possible?” People were somehow even more shocked.
“It is absolutely true! At first, that young sovereign cooked some Smelly Tofu, which could enhance a cultivator’s Soul Strength by ten percent. Many big shots joined the panic buying. After that, the Jiang Family bought the miraculous item which could look through the ancient stones from that young man by cooperating with the Gong Family and the Bai Family at a formidable price of 5,000,000 high quality Spirit Stones!”
This news immediately caused an uproar among all the cultivators in the city.
“Holy sh*t! Five million high quality Spirit Stones?”
“This is way too much!”
“That’s why the three big families walked together toward the city gate just now! Because they bought a precious item by cooperating with each other!”
“My God! How could such a miraculous item, which can look through the ancient stones, exist in this world?”
“Nobody will organize the Stone-Cutting Convention in future!”
As everyone voiced their surprise, the other big shots who participated in the Stone-Cutting Convention left quietly.
The news was released by people sent by these big shots, who had accumulated abundant experience in handling issues like this after so many years.
The reason they had been cheated by Xu Que during the Stone-Cutting Convention was that they had stayed in the high positions for a long time, and no young people dared tease them like that.
However, the convention was over. Now the three big families had obtained a precious item by cooperating with each other. Therefore, these big shots had to make trouble for the three big families by spreading the news and making enemies for them.
Someone released news again.
“The latest hearsay: the three big families have gone out of the city, and their target is to intercept and kill the young sovereign of the Exploding Heavens Faction so that they can get back those 5,000,000 high quality Spirit Stones!”
The hearsay caused another uproar among the cultivators in the city immediately.
As big families, how could they act shamelessly like this?
How could that be?
“I noticed the big shots of the three big families were quite unhappy just now. And their eyes were filled with killing intent. Are they really planning to kill that young man and rob the Spirit Stones?”
“This is horrible! No one will dare deal with the three big families in the future!”
“No, we should go and have a look. We should save that young man! The three big families are too overbearing! They must be stopped.”
“Right! If they really want to break the rules, we have to save that young man and deprive that precious item from them!”
“How could such a miraculous item be in the evil hands of the three big families?”
“Let’s go out of the city together! The team of the three big families only has several powerhouses at the Void Training Stage. If we attack together, they will be defeated!”
All at once, being agitated by numerous instigations, thousands of cultivators in the ancient city teamed up and dashed together toward the city gate!
