Chapter 157: Meeting Broken Heart once again
The sounds in Heavenly Stellar City had increased by several times because of the opening of the currency exchange center. Ye Tian Xie pulled Su Fei Fei to Guo Guo’s Little Cabin (Alright, it seems like Tian Xie is involved with this name) and then he quickly went off in the direction of City Lord’s Palace. After walking halfway, he received a call from Zuo Po Jun.
“Second brother, you have to personally get that funds card. Although it is at its busiest right now, it is better if old fourth and I get the card now, so we’ll be going first.”
Ye Tian Xie said a few words in response and then quickly stepped into the City Lord’s Palace.
“This quickly?” Seeing that he was back, the Heavenly Stellar City Lord was obviously caught off guard. He stood up and asked, “Brave one from another world, have you already exterminated that Golden Sword Lion? Or is it……”
Ye Tian Xie took out the Golden Sword Lion’s pelt from his inventory and placed it in front of the Heavenly Stellar City Lord. The Heavenly Stellar City Lord’s eyes lit up and he immediately revealed a smile filled with happiness, “Good, you didn’t let me down. Since it’s like this, then according to our prior arrangements I will immediately……”
“Please wait a minute.” Ye Tian Xie waved his hand to cut off the Heavenly Stellar City Lord and then he took out that “Wang Cai’s Land Deed” from his inventory as he said, “Sir City Lord, I think you might need to give me an extra reward.”
“This is……Ah? This is the land deed Wang Cai lost in the past! I remember that I had personally given this land deed to Wang Cai before.” The Heavenly Stellar City Lord was filled with shock and then he asked in a surprised voice, “Why is this land deed in your hand?”
Ye Tian Xie said, “Sir City Lord, the news of Wang Cai meeting a Spiritual Grade Beast was not false. I had met that Spiritual Beast in the Phantom Woods and after exterminating it, this land deed came from its body.”
“Spiritual Beast……What? You found the Spiritual Beast and exterminated it?” The Heavenly Stellar City Lord’s voice turned louder and his eyes filled with visible excitement.
Ye Tian Xie moved back two steps and took out the Six Winged Heaven Treading Purple Qilin’s corpse from his inventory. The Heavenly Stellar City Lord was filled with shock when he saw this little Spiritual Beast and his face filled with excitement, taking a long time before he calmed down. He gave a long sigh and said, “I never thought that the Phantom Forest would really be hiding a Spiritual Beast that was even being demonized. If it had lost control and charged out of the Phantom Forest, it would be hard to imagine the consequences. This time, we’re lucky that we had a brave one like you with the Badge of Bravery. I am truly grateful for what you have done.”
“Then what about this land deed?”
“He, he.” The Heavenly Stellar City Lord let out an approving laugh and said, “Perhaps this is praise from the heavens to brave ones like you. Since you have obtained the land deed, naturally, the land entitled in the land deed will belong to you.”
“Ding……Because you have obtained “Wang Cai’s Land Deed” and have obtained the Heavenly Stellar City Lord’s approval, you have obtained the right to control the street north of the Heavenly Stellar City’s center for 6-7 years. You can freely use, construct, demolish, transfer, or sell on your land.”
“Ding……You have completed the ‘Eliminate the Level 25 Lord Level Boss Golden Sword Lion in the Phantom Forest to the east of Heavenly Stellar City’ Quest.
Rewards: Experience + 30000 and Prestige + 30.
Because you have triggered and completed the quest’s optional hidden branch, you have received extra rewards
Extra Rewards: Experience + 50000, 30000 Gold Coins, Prestige + 100, 10 Favorability from the Heavenly Stellar City Lord, and a Heavenly Stellar City Special Pardon Command Token.
Hidden Ultimate Reward: The right to control the the street north of the Heavenly Stellar City’s center for 6-7 years.”
Since he had entered the «Destiny» world, good luck seemed to follow him around.
No, if he didn’t have enough power and courage, this so called luck would not have existed. Being able to control a piece of land right by the center of a main city, this was a reward that had never been seen or heard of before. If it were anyone else, it would have required an astronomical amount of gold coins just to buy this right.
“Thank you Sir City Lord. Please come find me if you have anything else you need help with.” Ye Tian Xie politely said.
“I will, shocking brave one.” With his favorability increased by ten points, the Heavenly Stellar City Lord was being even more polite to Ye Tian Xie. Before Ye Tian Xie left, he added, “Brave one from another world, if you ever reach level fifty and have the qualifications to enter the Lost City, come see me first. I will personally write an introduction for you, which will allow you to have a chance to meet the High Emperor of the Lost Continent.”
Leaving the City Lord’s Palace, Ye Tian Xie did not immediately return to his home in this world and went directly to the business street. His goal was located at the edge of the street which was the emptiest appraisal shop. After the trip into the Phantom Forest, he had many pieces of equipment that needed to be appraised now, but because of level limitations, there was no urgent need for the appraisal right now. But he couldn’t help taking the initiative to come here……It wasn’t to get the items appraised, but rather he was here to see if he could once again meet the girl that had touched his heart yesterday.
There were very few people that had gone through bitter experiences comparable to his own and it was only he who could understand that expression she had worn. It was also this kind of feeling that seemed like he was looking at himself that made it hard for him to forget about her.
The shop was surrounded by appraisers looking for work. There was the same amount of people from yesterday, only a pitiful few dozen standing outside. The high level appraisers knew that at this stage, standing outside this shop would be a waste of time, so it was better for them to level up their other livelihood professions.
When Ye Tian Xie arrived, he saw the girl from yesterday with a single glance – Broken Heart. She stood in the same corner as yesterday. Perhaps it was the hope that Ye Tian Xie gave her, but her eyes was even more moving compared to yesterday.
As if their hearts were connected, when Ye Tian Xie found her, she had also noticed Ye Tian Xie and her eyes began to sparkle. When Ye Tian Xie walked beside her, she spoke first, “You’re here…..Are you here to get some items appraised?”
After she finished speaking, she lowered her head a little as if she regretted what she said a little. She would have never thought that Ye Tian Xie would actually give her an affirmative reply.
“Un, that’s right. I’ve found a few more pieces of equipment and need your help appraising them.” Ye Tian Xie revealed a faint smile as he spoke. Facing her, his voice was much more gentle because he had the same look in his eyes before, so he knew what she needed.
“Ah?” The girl raised her head and looked at him with a pleasantly surprised expression.
“Here are three pieces of Silver Equipment, I’ll have to ask you to help me appraise them.” The Golden Sword Lion had dropped three pieces of Silver Equipment which he traded over to her.
Looking at the three pieces of Silver Equipment in her hand, Broken Heart was stunned for a while, but she quickly began to appraise the item. After a while, she gently bit her lip and said, “Three pieces of level twenty five Silver Equipment……The total is seventy five gold coins. We……We could be considered……considered friends, so I should help you for free, but……But I……”
But she really needed the money.
“No need to say this.” Ye Tian Xie shook his head and said in a somewhat unhappy voice, “I’m already happy that you’re treating me as a friend, but I don’t like to owe others favours. You appraising these items for me is cheaper than the appraisal shop, so you’re already helping me out. If you really want to do it for free, then I won’t dare come for your help in the future.”
“Moreover…..” He revealed a faint smile and stared at her beautiful cheeks as he said, “The appraiser in the shop is an old man with an ugly face and you are a fairy like beautiful girl, very nice to look at. This kind of beauty that can raise one’s mood cannot be bought with any amount of money.”
Under his gaze, Broken Heart’s eyes revealed a flustered look and she no longer dared to look at him. She had a grateful voice as she said, “Thank you.”
Ye Tian Xie did not say anything else and just silently looked at her using the appraisal skill. This was a girl that was struggling against the world. Perhaps she was struggling in a difficult environment which filled her eyes with an alertness against the world. There was also a dim feeling that she urgently needing gold coins that Ye Tian Xie could clearly see.
But he also knew that she did not need charity. So he chose to use this silent method to help her. Just like when he was younger…….The cold and hungry him had wished that others would ask him to help them do things…….Even if he had to lift stones all day, it was fine if he received three steamed buns or three bowls of gruel.
Compared to him who had danced on the line of life and death everyday in the past, this girl……was much more lucky.
After appraising the three pieces of Silver Equipment, the girl carefully returned them to Ye Tian Xie after receiving her seventy five gold coins. Then she revealed to him a shy but incomparably beautiful smile. She knew his name, rather everyone in the Destiny world knew his name as the person who created a legend in the Beginner Village, but she never knew what he looked like. So she began to create his appearance in her mind.
Looking at the stats for the three pieces of Silver Equipment, he immediately put them back into his inventory. Ye Tian Xie then took out the three pieces of Gold Equipment that the little Six Winged Heaven Treading Purple Qilin dropped and traded them over to her, “There is also these three pieces of Gold Equipment that I’ll have to trouble you with.”
“Ah……No, it’s no trouble.” She responded to him in the same way as yesterday. Although she knew that he was strong and mysterious Xie Tian who reigned over the level rankings, taking out pieces of high level equipment such as the Gold Equipment that normal people did not even have a chance to look at, she still suppressed the emotions that filled her heart. It took a while before she recovered herself and began to carefully appraise the items, “Three pieces of level fifteen Gold Equipment will cost a total of ninety gold coins.”
The light of the appraisal skill shined on the three pieces of equipment. With the current level of Broken Heart’s appraisal skill, there was only 30% chance of success when it came to Golden Equipment. She also had a maximum of four attempts because if she failed four times, he could only bring it to the appraisal shop. If she failed a fifth time, the item would be damaged.
(Author’s note: According to the laws of probability: The success rate of Broken Heart appraising a piece of Golden Equipment in four attempts is 1-7/10×7/10×7/10×7/10 = 0.76 = 76%. The probability of succeeding for all three pieces of equipment is 76%×76%×76%=43.9%. It’s actually quite high. Un! It’s better to learn your math before writing a gaming novel, otherwise the mess of data will make you collapse. Mars had close to full points in math and management in the past, with 126 in Chinese. As for English, I was just a little bit off – Roaring out: Screw whoever invented the subject English!!!! Learning other languages before even comprehending Chinese!!!! Those that work hard to study English, but to barely fall below the line were all angels with broken wings in their last life!!!! You can’t afford to get hurt!!!! You can’t afford to get hurt!!!!)
(Author’s note: I was too excited and changed the topic. The shadow of my resentment is too deep……)
