Chapter 52 Part 2
However, what he cared about was not his appearance and personality, but the jade pendant on his waist, which was only provided to the people of the White Horse City Lord’s Mansion, and there was only three people have this kind of jade pendant in the entire White Horse City. It was the city lord of White Horse City, the young city lord, and the young city lord’s wife.
The young man in front of him was only in the middle-stage of Foundation Building and looked young. He was obviously not the city lord or the young city lord of White Horse City, and he didn’t look like a woman disguised as a man...Then, he could only be, the younger brother of the young city lord’s wife.
This person’s reputation in White Horse City was bad, and judging from his performance, it was indeed the case.
Bai Jingchen was currently in urgent need of spirit stones, so even if the heavenly emperor came, he wouldn’t give in, let alone just a dandy youth.
He gave the young man a cold look and then turned away. The other people in his group also turned their heads, ignoring the young man.
The young man immediately became angry. He lost his temper and said, “Did you hear me? Give me the demon core in your hand, and I will let it bygones.”
Bai Jingchen frowned and was a little displeased. But at this moment, the old servant made another move. He directly tied up the young man and threw him into the Flame Bird’s nest, and jumped down.
Bai Jingchen felt a few unfamiliar auras around them.
He looked up and saw a group of people in green robes squatting nearby.
The man, who seemed to be the leader, sighed and walked over. He said to the four of them, “I’m sorry, our young city lord’s brother-in-law has caused you trouble. I was sent by the young city lord of White Horse City to protect this young master. Thank you for your mercy. You can go, and we won’t care about this matter.”
When Bai Jingchen heard this, he thought of the rumor that was widely circulated in White Horse City, and nodded. Anyway, he had urgent things to do, and naturally didn’t want to waste too much time on this matter.
The leader said thanks, flew to the nest to take the young man in his arms, and left quietly.
But because of the young man’s disturbance just now, Bai Jingchen and the others were a little at a loss, not knowing what they just said.
So, Jiang Yanbei repeated what he said just now. Li Zaiye and the old servant looked at each other when they heard this.
Li Zaiye coughed and said, “Alright, then let’s part here. By the way, my purpose this time is to get a demon core of the Flame Bird, so I will get this demon core. As a reward, I will give you a hundred middle-grade spirit stones. How about it?”
If Bai Jingchen was still doubtful before, he was completely sure now. He narrowed his eyes as he looked at the two of them, and his desire to get the spirit stone finally prevailed.
So he said, “Alright, we can trade now. You can take the Flame Bird demon core away and leave behind the spirit stones.”
Li Zaiye took out a storage bag from his waist, counted out a hundred middle-grade spirit stones, and put it on the ground.
The old servant suddenly said to Bai Jingchen, “Soon, there will be an excellent fortune that will happen to you. Congratulations! We will meet again.” After speaking, he quickly left with Li Zaiye.
Bai Jingchen was puzzled. What good fortune could he have? He never believed it, because his luck had always been bad.
He picked up fifty middle-grade spirit stones and put it in his storage bag. He lowered his eyes and thought deeply, ‘Who are these two? What is their purpose of following me and Jiang Yanbei?’
He frowned in puzzlement. The two of them hardly spoke a few words during this task, and the relationship between Li Zaiye and his old servant was extremely strange.
Sometimes, it was the old servant who walked steadily on a side, and Li Zaiye occasionally stared at the old servant uncontrollably. When it was time to rest, Li Zaiye followed the old servant, seemingly waiting for orders...
In this way, although they hid it well, Bai Jingchen was wary of them from the very beginning, so naturally he secretly guarded against them on the way, and as a result discovered this inside story.
The relationship between these two people didn’t look like a young master and an old servant, but more like a young servant and an old master.
Right! It was this relationship, so it was a clumsy disguise.
After Bai Jingchen realized this, he thought that since these people would appear by his side, they must have their purpose, and now they suddenly left, it felt like they had already got what they wanted, so they turned around to leave directly.
Bai Jingchen said in his heart, ‘Their goal is definitely not the Flame Bird’s demon core, but the people doing the task this time, me and Jiang Yanbei. I just don’t know whether their observation person is me or Jiang Yanbei.’
Bai Jingchen couldn’t figure it out, but there was nothing he could do at this time. Not long ago, he realized his shortcomings in dealing with people, so he had been training his ability in this area.
He was thinking absent-mindedly that he didn’t come back to his senses until he arrived at the mission distribution place at the gate of White Horse City.
He and Jiang Yanbei entered it together, handed over the task token and the results of this time harvest, and got the spirit stones for the transaction. After splitting it equally, Bai Jingchen got half of the spirit stone rewards.
With these spirit stones and his current spirit stones, there were already over a hundred middle-grade spirit stones.
After saying goodbye to Jiang Yanbei, he immediately went to Lane Market, and sold all the spiritual plants he picked and the demon cores he hunted. Although he didn’t get many spirit stones, but he didn’t need to sell it by himself. There were gains and losses. The effort saved could allow him to do a few more tasks by himself.
When he walked out of Lane Market, he already had nearly 150 middle-grade spirit stones on him, and if he wanted to enter Siye Pavilion to ask questions, he had to prepare at least 220 middle-grade spirit stones.
Bai Jingchen didn’t go back to rest in the Immortal’s Cave, but went to the mission distribution place again, and received a task that was less difficult than the Flame Bird task. He sent Jiang Yanbei a communication talisman and immediately went first to White Horse Mountain.
He was now earning spirit stones almost day and night. After doing a few more tasks with Jiang Yanbei, he finally prepared enough spirit stones the day before the full moon night.
He was greatly relieved because of this. He had been busy these days, almost never resting. Now he had collected enough spirit stones, and he also met a pretty good friend, Jiang Yanbei.
He and Jiang Yanbei did several tasks together, so they gradually developed a tacit understanding between them, and he appreciated Jiang Yanbei’s smooth and slick character, and then consciously became friends with him.
After leaving the mission distribution place at the gate of White Horse City, he bid farewell to Jiang Yanbei and returned to his rented Immortal’s Cave.
He hadn’t been back for over ten days, and this time he returned to the Immortal’s Cave, he felt relaxed. He fetched water to take a bath, changed his clothes, and lay down on the bed with peace of mind. At this time, that childish voice finally sounded in his mind again.
The little dragon said, “Father, are you tired? Father, please...have a good rest, right, father, do...do you miss Liangchen?”
Hearing his voice, Bai Jingchen’s mood immediately relaxed. He said with a smile, “Thank you Liangchen for your concern, I understand, it won’t be like this in the future, and also, I miss you very much.”
The little dragon Liangchen immediately said with a smile, “That’s great, Liangchen also...miss Father.”
Bai Jingchen turned over to lie on his back, and asked with a smile at the corners of his mouth, “What are you doing these days?”
The little dragon Liangchen said, “Learning...to speak, also recognize, no, Liangchen said wrongly, it’s recognizing words, Liangchen is very obedient.”
Upon hearing this, Bai Jingchen immediately praised him, “Yeah, Liangchen is very obedient, so what exactly have you learned?”
The little dragon Liangchen said excitedly, as Bai Jingchen listened patiently to what Su Wenliang taught him recently. Before he knew it, more than an hour passed.
Until the little dragon Liangchen’s sleepy voice came, Bai Jingchen hurriedly said, “You should rest. Anyway, you can come to me at any time. I have always been free.”
The little dragon Liangchen agreed, and really stopped talking, as if he had fallen asleep.
Bai Jingchen only felt warmth in his heart after talking with the little dragon. He smiled and stopped practicing, rather just slept like this.
On the next day, he sat up and took the medicinal pill. After meditating for a while, he fully nourished his energy, and then got up and went to the Siye Pavilion.
He stood in front of Siye Pavilion. When he came here last time, he learned a shocking secret. This time, he had already determined the problem he was going to inquire.
Just like last time, after paying ten middle-grade spirit stones as the entry fee, he received the token and pasted it on the door, then walked in. Facing the bookshelves in the room, he said, “I want to know everything about the Love Snake Parasite.”
After his words fell, a bamboo slip flew out and landed on the bookshelf in front of him.
Bai Jingchen picked it up and placed it on his forehead, viewing it with his divine sense.
After a breath, Bai Jingchen, who had finished reading the bamboo slip’s contents, unconsciously let it go. The bamboo slip fell to the floor with a loud noise, but it didn’t alarm him at all, because he was completely shocked by the information he saw.
