Realms In The Firmament - Chapter 156
Chapter 156 - Take Over The Ling-Bao Hall
However, according to the condition of the Land of Han-Yang, Ye Xiao reckoned... that it still would take a long time to reach the second level.
If the power of reaching the first level of the Grade of Diyuan was equal to one portion, reaching the second level was equal to two portions. To reach level three needed eight portions... And sixty-four to reach the fourth level...
Ye Xiao felt that when he reached the Grade of Tianyuan, his East-rising Purple Qi would reach the second level!
Well, thinking about how long it would take, Ye Xiao felt speechless.
He had to try his best to improve himself.
To reach the second level of the East-rising Purple Qi, it took thousands of times more than it took to reach the first level.
There were nine levels of the East-rising Purple Qi in total.
When thinking about all this... Ye Xiao was... rather motivated!
When he reached the fourth level, he must have already become as powerful as he was in his previous life! That was the ninth level of the Grade of Daoyuan!
That was the peak level of the Qing-Yun Realm already!
So when he really reach the ninth level of the East-rising Purple Qi, what would he become? What cultivation level would he reach?
He felt excited even just thinking about it!
The next morning, the Crown Prince came to visit Ye Xiao in person and stayed in the House of Ye for quite a while.
He said a lot of thoughtful words and showed his concerns in all aspects. He delivered a lot of precious medical materials and sent out a lot of men to find good doctors... He was doing everything to help.
As the Crown Prince of the kingdom, he truly did all these things for merely a general's son. People were going to be moved with tears when they knew it.
Well... Ye Xiao didn't feel anything. Song Jue was watching all these like he was watching a play.
[Look how the bastard try to buy popularity...
He must be in dreaming!]
The next night, the House of Ye finally came back to peace after running for one day. Song Jue stayed around Ye Xiao. He felt tired and he was confused, [He has been lying here like this for such a long time. Doesn't he feel tired?]
To keep being like this, Ye Xiao had been operating his martial art to support it...
[Is he really capable to hold such a long time? That's unbelievable!]
’’I think it is enough now...’’ Song Jue shook Ye Xiao.
Ye Xiao finally woke up. He was still focused on acting, so he asked weakly, ’’Are... Are they... all gone?’’
Song Jue was amused, ’’There is only me. Stop acting. What the hell. I never knew it was so tiring to act. I think it is worse than fighting ten battles. I am exhausted!’’
Ye Xiao took a deep breath and made his bones crack. He sat up on the bed and said, ’’Uncle Song, you should feel satisfied. You are better than me. I nearly died trying to stay still. I felt like I was so stupid. Look, you have been busy for a whole day. Why don't you lie down for me...’’
Song Jue nodded, ’’Ah, you do have conscience after all... Hmm. What did you say? Lie down for you? You want me to act as a dead man for you?’’
Ye Xiao smiled, ’’Uncle Song, you are tired, aren't you? Look. You just need to lie down and do nothing. That must be easy and comfortable...’’
Song Jue spat, ’’Pooh! You little prick. How dare you! Need to do nothing? That's unable to do anything! I don't need your conscience now... Enjoy it yourself. Go back to your bed and lie till the end of the world, will you?!’’
Ye Xiao showed a sad face, ’’Uncle Song, please. I know you always treat me well. Just do me a favor. It really is unbearable. Have pity on your beloved nephew, will you?!’’
Song Jue showed a dark face, ’’You know it is unbearable, yet you still want me to do it. Unbelievable...’’
Finally, after begging for a while, Song Jue promised to lie in the bed for Ye Xiao, because he did treat Ye Xiao rather well. He was now going to enjoy the comfort of 'doing nothing'.
Ye Xiao wore black robes and got out through the window...
After only a few seconds, he disappeared in the dark night.
There was one thing Ye Xiao had been planning to do for a long time.
Now he had the time to do it.
Well, he had spent a lot of time while talking to persuade Song Jue though...
It was in the Ling-Bao Hall Salesroom.
The big fat Wan Zheng-Hao was lying part way up on the chair. He looked anxious.
[It has been two and half days since the god-master left.
Did he leave already?
He always came without informing me. I don't think he will tell me if he decided to leave...
He made me feel anxious all the time...
What should I do now. I don't know where he is.]
’’Fine. I will wait for another three days. If the god-master doesn't come back, I will return to my place myself. This is not a good place for me with my weight... I feel pain in every step.’’ Wan Zheng-Hao sighed.
He had gotten the method to live forever and Gu Jin-Long had helped him on it. It was surely a good thing for him.
However, the price was that he would stay fat all the time! And he would get fatter and fatter!
When he first built up the Ling-Bao Hall, he was about 90 kg. Now he was 700 kg. He was the no.1 fat guy in the world!
It was said that... it was the curse he had to take for the longevity he shouldn't have had.
Gu Jin-Long said that.
He grabbed his big belly, which had slipped down to the floor, and put it on his knees. Wan Zheng-Hao was quite upset.
’’That is too big a price... and a heavy one...
Well I can live forever. So I guess it should be fine to just be fat.’’
While he was murmuring, he heard someone knocked the door gently. Master Guan was outside reporting, ’’Boss. Feng Zhi-Ling requires a meeting.’’
Wan Zheng-Hao was surprised. He said, ’’Brother Feng? Why is he here? Go invite him in quickly!’’
The next moment, Feng Zhi-Ling just sat in front of Wan Zheng-Hao arrogantly.
’’Brother Wan.’’ Feng Zhi-Ling was smiling proudly.
’’Brother Feng, do you know where Master Gu is?’’ Wan Zheng-Hao asked anxiously.
’’Hmm. I have sent a letter to him earlier. Brother Gu got the thing he wanted already. And then he just left to cultivate immediately.’’ Ye Xiao answered blandly.
’’Oh. I see. That's good.’’ Wan Zheng-Hao rubbed his hands excitedly, ’’I am going back tomorrow then.’’
’’No, you can't.’’ Feng Zhi-Ling's face turned cold, ’’Brother Wan, when Brother Gu left, he wanted me to tell you something.’’
’’Brother Gu?’’ Wan Zheng-Hao asked with astonishment.
’’Brother Gu felt grateful when I found his family treasure for him. So he swore to become brothers with me. We became brothers of different names. We kowtowed eight times to the sky. We are life-and-death brothers now.’’ Feng Zhi-Ling was seriously talking.
’’Eh... Well...’’ Wan Zheng-Hao widely opened his mouth while staring dumbly at Feng Zhi-Ling. He was confused and unbelieving at the same time!
[Sworn brothers? Life-and-death brothers?
What the hell? Isn't it too fast?]
’’Oh, you don't believe it? Well Brother Gu knew that you wouldn't. Look, what is this?’’ Ye Xiao put several pieces of stuffs on the table.
There was one jade token among those things. It was all covered by a purple glow. There was a word 'decree' on it.
There was another jade token where the name of Gu Jin-Long was inscribed.
When Wan Zheng-Hao saw the two jade tokens, his fat body started shaking.
All the fats on his body started to shake around him. -Pah! Pah! Pah! -
The latter jade token was the identity token of Gu Jin-Long in his sect. It was something he would definitely keep with himself.
The purple jade token was the token he used to take charge of the Ling-Bao Hall.
When the purple token showed up, it represented Gu Jin-Long himself.
The two of them were both in Feng Zhi-Ling's hand. That meant one thing. Gu Jin-Long had handed over the power of running the Ling-Bao Hall to Feng Zhi-Ling!
For Wan Zheng-Hao, there turned out to be one more man who was in a higher position than him.
He had a boss who is directly in control of him now!
So he looked at the two tokens stunned. He looked ill like he just ate up a pile of shxt.
If he found the two tokens here, he would be extremely happy. That meant nobody was going to control him anymore. However, there was Feng Zhi-Ling with the two tokens. He was now the owner of the two tokens. That meant he was the second boss of Wan Zheng-Hao other than Gu Jin-Long.
At the moment, Feng Zhi-Ling smiled softly, 'Wan, from now on, we are going to work on Ling-Bao Hall together. We have to do a good job. Don't worry. I won't hinder you in anyway.’’
Wan Zheng-Hao's mind blanked out. He looked at the tokens on the table. He seemed to have lost his soul.
When he heard Feng Zhi-Ling's words, he turned furious!
[What the hell!
What is this all about?]
In the past, whenever Ling-Bao Hall got something precious, he needed to give the best ones to Gu Jin-Long. However, Gu Jin-Long came to Ling-Bao Hall nearly every hundred years and he just stayed for a few days. It didn't stop Wan Zheng-Hao from making his own money at all. And he got those medical materials to extend his life. So he had been feeling really good about the business in Ling-Bao Hall.
However, things were different now, as there was another boss above him.
First of all, Feng Zhi-Ling would never ignore everything in the Ling-Bao Hall like Gu Jin-Long did. He would definitely lay his hands on it.
Secondly, Feng Zhi-Ling didn't come from the higher realm. He was the native of the Land of Han-Yang. Even though he would be busy making dan beads, he would still spend most of his time to working on the affairs in Ling-Bao Hall.
