Chapter 145: Heavenly Stellar City’s Chain Chamber of Commerce
“He, he, you might as well say it. You helped me with a large matter last time and that mansion alone cannot allow me to fully express my gratitude. If there is anything you need help with, please just tell me.” The Heavenly Stellar City Lord laughed as he spoke. The tone of his voice was even more polite than Ye Tian Xie’s. This was not strange because as a person who could obtain the Badge of Bravery, he would definitely become an important person on the Lost Continent in the future. It was very clear just by looking at Ye Tian Xie “exterminating” the blood phoenix at level ten. So, this astute Heavenly Stellar City Lord wanted to build as much of a good relationship as possible.
At this moment, Ye Tian Xie directly said that he wanted to open a Chamber of Commerce in the center of Heavenly Stellar City, so he asked if he could have a good spot.
The Heavenly Stellar City Lord laughed, “Since it’s like this, that is just a small matter. Just tell me whatever location you want and as long as it’s not being used, I can give it to you.”
“Then many thanks Sir City Lord.”
The process was as smooth as it could be. Was this another rewards because he had “exterminated” the blood coloured phoenix?
“But, there are only a few locations at the center of the city and it is very expensive.” The Heavenly Stellar City Lord seemed to be reminding him of this as a thought flashed in his eyes.
“Money……is not a problem.” Ye Tian Xie spoke these surprising words.
The Heavenly Stellar City Lord continued saying, “Actually, on the north side of the Heavenly Stellar City Plaza there is a brand new Chamber of Commerce, but it has been abandoned for three years now. It was bought by a merchant from the Lost City and had been built in just three months, but he did not think that the unrest from the Tower of Destiny would affect him and three years ago, he perished in the mouth of a monster affected by the Tower of Destiny’s demon qi. Since then, it became a Chamber of Commerce without an owner. Although we recovered the land, we weren’t willing to destroy the Chamber of Commerce building……”
“Your meaning is?” Ye Tian Xie’s heart skipped a beat as he asked. Did the Heavenly Stellar City Lord want to sell it to him directly?
That would be a great thing!! If there was an already built Chamber of Commerce, then they would be able to skip the time consuming construction step. Although in the game world construction times were set and it would only take a week to construct the building, if someone could open up a Chamber of Commerce a week earlier, then that would be a giant advantage for them.
The next few words the Heavenly Stellar City Lord said made Ye Tian Xie’s heart beat faster.
“Brave one with the Badge of Bravery, I talked to you about this because I have something I need your help with. If you can help me, then I’d be willing to sell the Chain Chamber of Commerce for half price…….Are you willing to hear my request?” After the Heavenly Stellar City Lord finished speaking, he looked at Ye Tian Xie with a face of anticipation.
Ye Tian Xie gave a faint smile as he nodded, “Please tell me what you need my help with.”
“Thank you young man. I feel much more relieved now that you’ve agreed.” The Heavenly Stellar City Lord sat down in his chair and then he partly raised his head as he slowly said, “This matter is related to that merchant I mentioned who died in the hands of a monster. My Heavenly Stellar City is far from the Tower of Destiny at the center of the continent and the overflowing demon qi does not have any visible effects here……But three years ago, that merchant was attacked by a demonized monster, filling my heart with anxiety. This means that while the influence of the demon qi is not obvious, it still exists……Moreover, as time passes, the consequences become even more frightening. Finally……”
He gave a gently sigh and then said, “Heavenly Stellar City seems stable on the surface, but there are many hidden dangers. Just a month ago, our people found a terrifying place to the east. It is a forest that runs for several miles and there are all kinds of birds and beasts, as well as many traps like swamps hidden in the forest, but we do not know why it appeared. It is a place filled with yin qi and every time they entered, they always felt a sinister dead aura pressuring them. With this strong yin qi and a forest turning dark like this, it is an easy place for demon qi to gather…….And at the time, we were surprised to find that half the beasts in the forest had already been demonized. Even the beast king in the forest had been affected by the demon qi and had become demonized. Perhaps before long, those beasts affected by the demon qi will come out of the forest and visit human territories, bringing great disaster upon us.”
“What do you want me to do?” Ye Tian Xie asked.
“It’s very simple.” The Heavenly Stellar City Lord revealed a look of anticipation, “I hope that you can kill the demonized Golden Sword Lion in the forest. It is a terrifying lion and if you can defeat it, even if the other monsters leave the forest, we can still defend against them.”
“Ding…….The Heavenly Stellar City Lord has requested you to kill the level 25 Lord Level Boss, Golden Sword Lion in the Phantom Forest to the east.
Quest Grade: Unique
Quest Time Limit: Seven days
Rewards: Prestige +30 and the right to buy the Chain Chamber of Commerce in the heart of Heavenly Stellar City for half its normal price.”
A level twenty five Lord Level Boss? With Ye Tian Xie’s current stats, he was confident in fighting even a level thirty Lord Level Boss. How could he not accept this quest that did not seem challenging at all? He nodded with a relaxed expression and said, “Alright, you can relax. I will definitely complete this quest as soon as possible.”
“If you put it like this, I am filled with joy.” The Heavenly Stellar City Lord began to laugh. As Ye Tian Xie was about to leave, he suddenly thought of something and then stopped Ye Tian Xie. He knit his brows and said, “There’s something I must remind you of……According to the people with the businessman, they said that he was killed by a half demonized lion……But that lion was not the Golden Sword Lion, rather it was something that should not have appeared……A Spiritual Level Beast!”
“Spiritual Level Beast? That forest has a Spiritual Level Beast?”
“No one has ever seen the Spiritual Beast appear before. We have tried searching for it in these past few years, but it had never appeared. Perhaps it was just a mistake, but if it truly does exist…….It was already a Spiritual Level Beast when it was demonized three years ago, it would be truly terrifying now. I hope you don’t meet it……With your current strength, facing a Spiritual Level Beast is something that no one can run from.” The Heavenly Stellar City Lord said in a serious voice.
“Alright, I understand.”
Leaving the City Lord’s mansion, Ye Tian Xie took out his communication device and called Misty Rain Revival, “Fei Fei, have you changed Jobs yet?”
Right as he spoke, Ye Tian Xie was suddenly a little surprised.
Why did he call Su Fei Fei……..And why did he not call Zuo Po Jun or Murong Qiu Shui who was with her?
What did this unconscious action mean? Was he slowly treating her as one of the important people to him?
Everyday, the first thing she did after getting out of bed was make breakfast and then she used her own way to wake him up……In front of him, she had never acted like a spoiled young miss. She never did anything to bother him or disturb him. Even if he spent a whole day in the game, other than meal times, she never disturbed him. She made different dishes everyday as well as cleaning the house and making it sparkling clean. She even made him take a shower every night…….
Unknowingly, he began to enjoy this feeling……Gradually, she was being imprinted on his heart. Having this kind of normal life, even if it lasted for a few days, it would be enough for him to remember it for a lifetime.
“Un, I’ve changed Jobs already. Tian Xie, where are you?”
At the entrance of the Job Change Temple, Ye Tian Xie met up with Su Fei Fei’s group. Su Fei Fei waved the magic staff in her hand at Ye Tian Xie as she smiled and said, “Guess what Job I changed into.”
“Priest.” Ye Tian Xie said without any hesitation.
“Ah? How did you get it right with one guess? You’re no fun…….Did you guys tell Tian Xie?” Su Fei Fei angrily looked over at Zuo Po Jun and Murong Qiu Shui.
“No, no, of course we didn’t.” Zuo Po Jun quickly waved his hands.
Murong Qiu Shui said, “Oh……I swear on the moon in the sky that I did not say anything to second brother within the past three hundred and seventy five seconds. The stars and the sun can testify for me.”
“Then……I was a basic fire magician before, how did you guess that I changed into a Priest?”
“We think alike.” Ye Tian Xie’s brows fell as he looked at her eyes. He had a smile on his face as he spoke.
Su Fei Fei was stunned. Zuo Po Jun and Murong Qiu Shui were also stunned.
Su Fei Fei’s lips trembled slightly and her mood became somewhat frazzled. The words he said made her heart beat fast, giving her a kind of feel she couldn’t help wanting to indulge in. She suddenly revealed a smile that was like a hundred flowers blooming, beautiful beyond compare, “Humph! You’re that great, alright? Then where are we going to play……Wu! I just reached level ten and are much weaker than you guys. Tian Xie, bring me somewhere to level, alright?”
“I have a very dangerous quest to do, do you want to come along? After I finish the quest then the problem with the company’s location will be perfectly solved. Un, perhaps it will be even more perfect than you could imagine?” Ye Tian Xie smiled and said.
“Ah? Really……What quest is it? I want to come with you. Although I’m only level ten……I’m still a priest and can help protect you.” Su Fei Fei excitedly walked beside him. After she said her last sentence, her voice became very low.
Zuo Po Jun patted his chest and said, “As long as second brother is willing, I’m willing to follow him. Hei, fighting with second brother is never an uncomfortable thing to do.”
Murong Qiu Shu looked over with eyes that was filled with charm, “Aiya, we can finally witness second brother’s heroic bearings. My heart is already beating 3.7 times faster than normal, I can’t wait another second.”
“Prepare the potions and equipments……We’re leaving immediately..”
(Author Note: Un, it has been quite bland for quite a while, so there will be a little climax soon. The strongest early level boss will be appearing soon. With a six digit HP and strength that is ten times the Amethyst War Tiger, instantly killing anyone it touches, even Ye Tian Xie. Thinking about how to torture them to death. Un……Actually this big boss is also quite small.)
