Before leaving the grocery store, Li Xiaonian looked at Kuiluo expectantly. “Old man, we are now in the same camp. Do you still have any precious crystal stones? Don’t worry. I’ll pay you, at market prices. The more advanced energy I have, the stronger I will become, and the better my chances of successfully rescuing Leader Wufeng.”
Kuiluo’s face turned dark and he just wanted to slap Li Xiaonian in the face. He gritted his teeth and said, “No, and other than that, all my combat preparation funds have been conned by you. If you want to better complete the task, you’d better return the 600 gold coins to me. I am hampered by the lack of sufficient funds.”
The reason why he was willing to buy the customer information from Li Xiaonian was to see if he could use this opportunity to rescue Leader Wufeng.
Unfortunately, he didn’t expect he would be swindled, and swindled so badly, but now he needed Li Xiaonian’s help, so he couldn’t put a tough attitude on him.
Li Xiaonian hurriedly shook his head. “I’ve already spent the money. If there is nothing else, I’m going to meet Kitten and work at our teamwork.”
How would he possibly let the gold coins slip through his fingers? It was impossible.
Kuiluo was aggrieved. One second Li Xiaonian said that he wanted to buy advanced energy and the next he lied brazenly that the money had been spent. He was quite sure that Li Xiaonian was the most shameless person he had ever seen.
“Okay, then lend me some money.” In order to persuade Li Xiaonian, Kuiluo gritted his teeth and said, “As long as you are willing to lend me money, I’ll pay you back double after you rescue the leader.”
Li Xiaonian quickly grasped the key points. If the task was successfully completed, his income would double, but if the task failed, the money was gone.
“How much do you want to borrow? And, why not look to your friends for money?”
“The more money, the better. I used to be a subordinate of Leader Wufeng, so my every move is being watched by the current leader.”
Li Xiaonian grudgingly accepted this explanation. “Fine, write me a note, and I can give you 600 gold coins.”
600 gold coins were the limit, no more. He had too many things to spend his money on.
Kuiluo breathed a sigh of relief and quickly wrote a note.
After the deal was done, Li Xiaonian carefully put away the note. Unfortunately, Kuiluo’s next words made him frown.
“June, I have to tell you the truth, 600 gold coins are too few. It’s difficult to buy off the captain of the guards in the base with this money.” Kuiluo revealed his true feelings and said bitterly, “I know you have money. Lend me 10,000 gold coins. After the job is done, I’ll still double it back to you.”
Li Xiaonian’s eyes widened.
10,000 gold coins? Are you trying to rob me?
Although he still had more than 7,000 gold coins on him, they were life-saving money for his family. It was safe to say that unless he left the novice base, he wouldn’t be able to make so much money in a short period of time.
Suddenly, Li Xiaonian’s eyes lit up.
He didn’t have much money, but Tianyu did. No one in the entire Skyfire Base would like to see the Wolf Walk Guild destroyed more than Tianyu. He would gladly spend any amount of money, let alone 10,000 gold coins.
“Wait, just 10,000 gold coins? I’ll give them to you right away.”
Li Xiaonian immediately contacted Tianyu.
“Now there is a chance to destroy the Wolf Walk Guild, but you need to give 10,000 gold coins to a special NPC to buy off NPC soldiers. If it succeeds, in return, you can get 20,000 gold coins, but if it fails, you’ll lose 10,000 gold coins. This time the risk is quite high, so I won’t charge commissions. Think it over for yourself.”
As soon as the message was sent, he immediately received a reply from Tianyu.
“Brother, my dear brother, is what you said true?”
“I’ll transfer the money to you now. Are 10,000 gold coins enough? If they’re not enough, I’ll raise more money immediately. I can get it for you at any time within 50,000 gold coins. Even if you can’t destroy the Wolf Walk Guild, sapping it will do.”
Li Xiaonian smiled helplessly and replied, “It doesn’t need that much. Ten thousand gold coins should be enough. I remind you once again. This time the risk is very high and you may lose all the money.”
“It’s okay. I can afford it. As long as I can see the Wolf Walk Guild take a hit, I’m willing to pay any amount of money.”
System: “10,000 gold coins transferred into your account, the balance: 17,311.51 gold coins.”
My good lord, aren’t you afraid of being deceived by me?
“I’ve received the money. The results will come out within 26 days. Wait for the news. As for the specifics, I’ll tell you slowly after the Wolf Walk Guild is destroyed.”
With the huge amount of gold coins in his account, Li Xiaonian glanced at Kuiluo, who looked quite nervous. “What are you waiting for? Come on, write an IOU.”
“Okay, okay, just a minute.”
Kuiluo quickly wrote an IOU.
Li Xiaonian didn’t play any trick this time and readily handed over the 10,000 gold coins to him. “Remember, plus the 10,000 gold coins, now you owe me 21,200 gold coins in total.”
Suddenly receiving ten thousand gold coins, Kuiluo was trembling with excitement. “Lord Wufeng can be saved this time.”
Li Xiaonian didn’t bother to look at him, shook his head, and left.
The east gate of the base.
There were a lot of players who were going out to farm and do quests. A typical team would consist of at least six members, one in each of the six professions.
Li Xiaonian appeared and was soon recognized.
That was because Li Xiaonian was very famous now. He easily defeated Xiaolang, refreshing people’s understanding of battle mode.
“June, would you like to team up with us? Our members are all already at level 9. We can help you do tasks and make merits.”
“Is he June? He doesn’t look so special. Is he really that strong?”
Li Xiaonian pretended not to hear or see anything, looking for Kitten in the crowd.
He sent a message to Kitten. “I’ve arrived. Where are you?”
Kitten: “Your ten o’clock direction. Keep going forward.”
With doubts, Li Xiaonian followed her instructions and quickly walked to a small forest in front. In the woods, a middle-aged woman leaned against a tree trunk in boredom with a straw in her mouth.
“Auntie, are you Kitten’s teammate?” Li Xiaonian asked, thinking himself polite.
The middle-aged woman’s face instantly turned purple. “Who do you call Auntie? Call me Sister! Who says only teenage girls can be named Kitten?”
Li Xiaonian gaped in shock, stupefied.
Are you kidding me? Sister? This Kitten in front of him seemed to be quite pretty from a distance, but at a closer look, she was probably about the same age as his mother.
Kitten was too lazy to care about his attitude, asking, “Have you brought enough supplies?”
“Yep, I brought a lot.”
“Okay, let’s go.”
Kitten took Li Xiaonian deep into the wilderness.
As soon as Li Xiaonian said this, he immediately felt an inexplicable murderous aura. He hurriedly changed his words. “Sister, what are we going to do now?”
Kitten didn’t answer but sized up Li Xiaonian. “I know your fighting skills are better than mine, but how about your marksmanship?”
“It shouldn’t be bad.” Li Xiaonian replied awkwardly.
He played the “Star Wind” for five solid years in his previous life, during which, guns barely left his hand. With so much experience, his marksmanship couldn’t be bad.
Kitten pointed her finger at a wild fruit hanging on the branch in front.
The wild fruit swayed with the wind.
“Try your marksmanship and see if you can hit it. If you can, I’ll take you to hunt down a boss. A boss can get you a lot of merit points, but it’s a bit difficult to kill. If you can’t hit it, let’s change a place and go to the Discarded Mine.”
Li Xiaonian glanced at the wild fruit on the branch, took out the , aimed, and shot, finishing all movements in one go.
The wild fruit was blown up instantly.
“Little brother, not bad.” Kitten was surprised.
“Hehe, it’s nothing,” Li Xiaonian said humbly, but gave a triumphant look.
Come on, at such a short distance and with almost a stationary target, how could he possibly miss the target?
Kitten moved deftly, trying to seize the [Blaster Pistol] in Li Xiaonian’s hand. However, Li Xiaonian had already had ten years of combat experience. With a reflexive flick of his wrist, he shook Kitten’s hand away.
Once again, Kitten looked surprised. “Tsk, little brother, you’re really something. No one escaped my sneak attack before you. How many years have you practiced?”
“I’m a genius.” Li Xiaonian gave an irrelevant answer.
Kitten looked eagerly at Li Xiaonian’s pistol and stretched out her palm. “Show me the pistol.”
Li Xiaonian was reluctant, but still gave her the pistol. To be honest, he felt miserable teaming up with an auntie.
Kitten fondled the pistol admiringly, and after she saw its attributes, her eyes were gleaming. “No wonder the bullet shot even faster than my gun’s. It’s really a good gun.” Then she said, “Lend me this for a few days, okay?”
Li Xiaonian’s face turned dark, but she had something on him, and he could only do as she asked.
Seeing Li Xiaonian’s expression, Kitten giggled and threw the pistol back to Li Xiaonian. “Come on, I’m not a robber. It’s just a joke. By the way, as a novice player, where did you get this pistol? I don’t think anyone is willing to sell such a nice gold-level weapon.”
“Lang Burang gave it to me to cozy up to me.” Li Xiaonian answered truthfully.
Kitten gaped in surprise and then laughed out loud. “You deceived the Wolf Walk Guild and made Lang Burang give you such a good weapon. If he knows that he has been deceived, he must be desperate to kill you.”
“Hehe.” Li Xiaonian laughed awkwardly and said weakly, “So, please keep it secret for me. Thank you, Sister.”
“You can rest assured. As long as you are well-behaved, I’ll protect you.”
“Sure, I won’t let you down, Sister.” Li Xiaonian said firmly.
Kitten curled her lips. “You’re so glib-tongue. I originally planned to introduce my daughter to you, but it seems that you are not suitable to be my son-in-law.”
When Li Xiaonian heard her words, his mind flashed the figure of Yang Yue, who had cheated and betrayed him. As soon as the figure appeared, his romantic thought immediately disappeared without a trace.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
That woman was not worthy of remembering, still less of sympathy. If he could, he wished he would never see her again in his life.
Li Xiaonian refused politely, “Sister, I’ve already got someone I’m interested in. Thank you for your kindness.”
“Humph, I’m just saying. Do you think I’m really going to do that? I’m warning you, if you dare to hit on my daughter, I’ll break your legs.”
Li Xiaonian was speechless and simply chose to shut up. Faced with an unreasonable woman, no matter what you said, the answer was always wrong.
