Strongest Abandoned Son - Chapter 5
’’You two can leave, I won't sell my things to you. This guy here is annoying me.’’ Ye Mo pointed at Wang Peng and said to Su Jingwen.
Su Jingwen was so troubled by her mum's condition that she seemed very fatigued all the time. She had already lost hope for the hospital. She heard from someone that her mum could be haunted by an evil spirit and as long as she bought a spirit repelling artefact, it could cast away the spirit and make her mum wake up. She bought quite a lot of artefacts but her mum still didn't have the slightest sign of waking up. Now, someone said that his charm could make her mum wake up, how could she let that pass.
Even if this person was tricking her, it was only tens of thousands of dollars, that really wasn't much for her Su family. If there was a sliver of hope, she wouldn't give up. Although in the depth of her heart she also knew that this person's words were probably 99% fake, she still wanted to try nonetheless.
Hearing Ye Mo say that, how could she not be worried. She hurried and said to Ye Mo: ’’I'm sorry master, I have no relations with this person.’’ After she finished, Su Jingwen stared coldly at Wang Peng and said: ’’Mr Wang, you're free to leave. Please stop following me or I will be calling the police.’’
Hearing Su Jingwen's words, Wang Peng stared bleakly at Ye Mo. In his heart, he already considered Ye Mo to be a paralysed person. When he went back, he would call people to break this guy's arms and legs.
But since Su Jingwen already said that, he no longer had the face to stay and could only turn away to leave.
Ye Mo saw Wang Peng's eyes and knew what that person wanted to do. However, he was only going to do this business during these few days. As soon as he was finished, he would leave. He didn't have the time for other things. More so, he wasn't afraid of this Wang Peng at all.
’’I want all of your spirit cleansing charms here, how much is it?’’ Seeing Wang Peng had left, Su Jingwen asked desperately.
Ye Mo took the two spirit cleansing charms and said: ’’I worked my heart out for this. Of course there won't be much. There is only two. You only need this good one. As for the other one, you can store it with a jade both. Usually, it would still be working in ten years. It will be 30,000 for the two of these.’’
As he spoke, Ye Mo took the two spirit cleansing charms and gave it to Su Jingwen and showed her the one that was close to level 1.
Su Jingwen took the two charms but gave a 50,000 cheque to Ye Mo. Ye Mo wasn't someone who liked to take advantage of others so her took another protection charm and fire ball charm and gave it to Su Jingwen. He said: ’’Since you gave me 20,000, I'll give these two to you as well.’’
’’This is a protection charm. When you go back, put it in a small pouch and wear it on your body. As for the fire ball, it's for self defence. If you encounter someone who tries to harm you. Just throw it over and say ’’Lin.’’
TL note: the lin here literally means arrival/arrive
Seeing that Ye Mo didn't want to take advantage of her, Su Jingwen immediately had greater hopes for these two charms. Ye Mo didn't look like a cheater no matter what. After hearing Ye Mo's words, she hurried and asked: ’’Master, how do I use this spirit cleansing charm?’’
Ye Mo took the cheque and said: ’’Same, just throw the charm at the patient and say ’’lin.’’
’’Um, what is your last name, is it possible for you to come see my mother together. I will pay double for you.’’ Taking the spirit cleansing charm, Jiang Li felt that her hasty mind seemed to be gradually calmed. On top of that, this paper looking charm weighed quite something. This gave her more confidence for Ye Mo and that's why she thought about inviting Ye Mo.
Of course Ye Mo wouldn't go with Su Jingwen and waved his hand: ’’I don't need to go, this charm can definitely save the person.’’
Seeing that Ye Mo didn't want to go with them, Su Jingwen and the woman called Xiao Yue could only take the two charms and rush back to try.
When the two ladies left, Ye Mo turned to pack up his stall in order to cash out the money at a bank. He desperately needed money right now.
’’Sister Jing, this person wore a big pair of shades and we couldn't even see his face. Wang Peng's words did have reason. I think he may be a fraud.’’ Although she clearly thought the Ye Mo was a fraud, Xiao Yue still expressed it euphemistically.
Su Jingwen sighed. She also thought that Ye Mo was a fraud but even knowing that he was a fraud, she still had to try because she didn't want to give up on any measure that could wake up her mother. Even if she knew she was being cheated, she still had to try.
Seeing Su Jingwen sigh without talking, the bodyguard Xiao Yue seemed to know Su Jingwen's thoughts. Her face was also sad but didn't continue saying anything.
The first thing Ye Mo did after getting the 50,000 was to find a place to live because right now, he needed some herbs to make some serums. It wasn't convenient for him in the school. It would be much better if he rented a house outside. Although he wouldn't see his dorm mates once in a few months, his things were all secrets and he didn't want to expose it like that.
It was very easy to rent a place in Ning Hai as long as there was money but there was rarely a place that could satisfy Ye Mo. This was because this placed he wanted to live in not only needed to be quite and have a good environment, but also a place where he could practise martial arts.
It was very hard for him to cultivate right now but he didn't want to forget his mortal martial arts from his past life. He needed some measures for self defence.
The Ning Du district and Ning Hai University where Ye Mo went to school were coincidentally on the north and south respectively. Although it was all in the same city, there was more than 30 miles of road in between. When Ye Mo had found Ning Du, it was already almost midnight.
The reason that he wanted to find somewhere far to live was due to two reasons. The first was because he didn't want the people in the school to know his secrets, the second was that he wished to run to the school in the future, this could train his body.
Just when Ye Mo felt that he couldn't find his living place today, a little yard with faint traces of spirit chi appeared in front of him. What gave Ye Mo surprise joy was that there was actually a poster saying for leasing on the yard.
Before even entering the house, Ye Mo had already decided to rent this place. Not for other things, only because the spirit chi here was relatively decent.
’’Who are you looking?’’ the door was knocked open by Ye Mo and a 50 or so years old woman appeared and scanned Ye Mo.
Ye Mo, meanwhile, forgot to reply to this woman because he saw that there was actually a Silver Heart Grass here. No wonder there was spirit chi emanating. He was surprised to see this herb here. However, there was only one and that was way too less. Silver Heart Grass was the main spirit grass for making Chi gathering pill. How could it exist on the spirit chi deprived Earth?
Ye Mo forced the excitement in his heart down and faced the woman who looked at him with a weird glance before hurrying to say: ’’Aunty, I saw that this place was for lease, I want to rent it.’’
Hearing Ye Mo's words, she finally understood. It was someone looking to rent the house so she hurried and let Ye Mo come in.
After some conversation, Ye Mo finally understood. This yard house had two rooms on the east and west as well as a living room. The house owner didn't want to rent the living room. The room on the west was already rented by someone. Meanwhile, the room on the west was where the house owner originally lived. However, the house owner was now going to the Ning Bei district where the house owner's son lived and therefore wanted to rent out the east side as well. Therefore, she met Ye Mo.
What took the woman by surprise was that she set the rent to be 1100 a month but this not so wealthy looking young man didn't even say anything and just paid out a year's rent straight away.
