Starting With A Space Battleship - Chapter 34
Chapter 34: Shameless
Facing the NPCs’ interrogation, Li Xiaonian didn’t conceal anything, but told the whole story in great detail, including the fact that the contact was Kuiluo of the grocery store and his partner was Kitten.
After listening to what Li Xiaonian said, Taiyan, Longping, and Si Mengqi all fell silent.
After a long while, Si Mengqi raised his head and asked, “Where did you get that heavy-armored minecart? Have you put it into your storage space?”
Earth Dragon One?
Li Xiaonian’s heart did a flip and he shook his head. “I refuse to answer the question about the minecart. It’s my personal belonging.”
“Humph!” Si Mengqi snorted coldly and stared at Li Xiaonian sternly. “You have committed an unpardonable crime by releasing Wufeng. We are now requisitioning your minecart to give you a chance to make up for it. If you refuse, you will only rot in jail for the rest of your life.”
Li Xiaonian frowned. “What if I have ways to kill Wufeng?”
“Huh?!” Everyone’s eyes fixed on Li Xiaonian.
“What are your ways? Tell us about them.” Longping asked.
“There are many ways to kill Wufeng. One is [Holy Purification Water], one is [Purification Sacred Charm], and the other is to baptize the Lord of Hell with powerful [Holy Light Technique] or [Thunderstorm Technique]. Besides, there is still the fourth choice, which is to crush Wufeng with strength, killing him continuously until he can’t restore his body.”
After a pause, Li Xiaonian continued, “It just so happens that I have many connections in the Blood Demon City. I can get a bottle of [Holy Purification Water] from there. As long as you let me leave the Skyfire Base and give me a voucher to return, I can leave for the Blood Demon City right away.”
Si Mengqi sneered. “You seem to be very familiar with the Lord of Hell, huh? Do you think we will choose Mr. Lang or you to handle this matter? To tell you the truth, we were able to keep Wufeng captive because the Wolf Walk Guild had contributed a lot of human and financial resources.”
Li Xiaonian’s heart sank.
No wonder the Wolf Walk Guild could control the entire Skyfire Base. It turned out that it was because they did the Skyfire Base a great favor and paid a great cost.
There was a long silence in the room, and finally, Deputy Leader Taiyan said, “June, leave the minecart with us, and we’ll give it back to you when this matter is over. However, you are not allowed to leave the base until Wufeng is killed.”
“Sorry, I refuse.”
Come on, Earth Dragon One was so precious that once it was in their hands, it was almost impossible for him to get it back.
Si Mengqi’s face was gloomy and murderous. “Are you sure?”
Li Xiaonian struggled for a long time and sighed. “If you really want it, I can sell it to you for 500,000 gold coins. No bargain.”
The security captain Longping lunged to his feet, and his eyes widened. “June, you’re robbing us. 500,000 gold coins for a minecart? Do you know how much 500,000 gold coins are!!!”
Li Xiaonian shrugged and said with an innocent look, “You think this price is high because you don’t know how powerful my minecart is, but what if I tell you the following facts: the minecart has a huge storage space; it’s made of rare metals, so its defense is as high as 1,000 points; it is also equipped with an [Armor-piercing Heavy Machine Gun]? Now, do you still think it’s not worth 500,000 gold coins?”
He got the minecart from [Shadow], and [Shadow] never disappointed him.
He offered to sell Earth Dragon One for 50 million yuan. Although the price was… a little bit high, the rich should still be willing to buy it.
More importantly, Li Xiaonian suddenly remembered that Earth Dragon One was controlled by the Shadow. As long as he’d like, after he unsealed the [Shadow], he could summon Earth Dragon One back at any time.
“We don’t have that much money. Don’t even think about it.” Taiyan refused.
Li Xiaonian smiled and explained, “You don’t have enough money, but the Wolf Walk Guild does. You two are so close and depend on each other so if you ask them to buy the minecart and then borrow it from them, they probably won’t say no.”
Taiyan frowned and mused.
Unable to persuade him, Li Xiaonian resorted to his trump card. “Master Leader, my minecart sells for 1 million gold coins, of which the Skyfire Base can keep 500,000 gold coins.”
His words were simple and crude. The price was 1 million, and the rebate was 500,000.
Taiyan, Longping, and Si Mengqi couldn’t help swallowing, staring at each other.
In the end, Si Mengqi couldn’t help asking, “Are you sure that the Wolf Walk Guild is willing to pay 1 million gold coins for it?”
Li Xiaonian nodded very affirmatively. “One million gold coins may be a lot for Skyfire Base, but for the Wolf Walk Guild, it’s just a breeze. The minecart’s value is self-evident. Besides, you forget its biggest function, mining. It comes with a mineral scanner. Once it locates the mineral source, they can get their cost back all at once, and even make several times or even ten times more profit. One more thing, it can act as a transport vehicle, and with its huge storage space, it can transport many items at one time.”
Taiyan listened and looked at Si Mengqi beside him.
Si Mengqi gave him a knowing glance and said, “Since your minecart is so good, isn’t 1 million gold coins a little short? How about 1.5 million?”
Li Xiaonian was dumbfounded.
Sure enough, the NPCs were just as greedy as the players. He said 500,000 first and then increased it to 1 million, but the NPCs were still not satisfied and raised the price to 1.5 million! These robbers!
Li Xiaonian hurriedly explained, “Master warden, 1 million is already the limit. If the price is too high, the Wolf Walk Guild may give up on buying the minecart.”
Seeing Taiyan nod, Si Mengqi immediately said, “OK, then let’s make it 1 million gold coins. The deal is between you and Mr. Lang. We won’t interfere with it. Besides, whatever the transaction price is, the Skyfire Base will take 500,000 gold coins from it.”
“Deal.” Li Xiaonian readily agreed.
After a while, Lang Burang was invited back by the NPCs, together with his secretary Xueyue.
When he spotted Li Xiaonian, his heart welled up with anger, but in the presence of these NPCs, he could only hold back his anger.
Li Xiaonian put on a reluctant expression.
Si Mengqi explained the situation to Lang Burang, “Mr. Lang, I think you’re well aware of the threat posed by the Lord of Hell, Wufeng. We now need the support of the forces behind you. The immediate problem is that Wufeng will definitely block the exit of the base, so without powerful auxiliary tools, it is impossible for the players you arrange to leave the base.”
As he said, Si Mengqi pointed to Li Xiaonian. “June owns a minecart with amazing defensive power. It can shuttle underground freely. We want to requisition it, but you know what kind of a person June is. He would rather die than give us his minecart, but he said he could sell it. I hope you can buy it.”
Lang Burang stared resentfully at Li Xiaonian and said coldly, “Just name the price.”
Li Xiaonian flicked his head away and ignored him.
Si Mengqi hurriedly stood up and said awkwardly, “He asked for 1.2 million gold coins, but we refused. At our insistence, he is willing to reduce the price to 1 million.”
Lang Burang’s eyes widened. “How much?!”
Li Xiaonian still ignored him, and Si Mengqi said awkwardly, “Yes, you heard it right. The price is 1 million gold coins.”
“Impossible.” Lang Burang refused flatly. “Some big cities also have minecarts for sale, and the price is at most 100,000 gold coins. His asking for one million is nothing but blackmail.”
With that, Lang Burang looked at Taiyan with eager eyes. “Leader, since he is unwilling to cooperate, why don’t you hand him to me? I have plenty of means to get him to cooperate.”
As long as Li Xiaonian fell into his hands, he had a hundred ways to tame Li Xiaonian.
Taiyan sighed. “Mr. Lang, now the Skyfire Base is at a life-or-death moment, we can’t act on impulse. However, as for whether the minecart is worth 1 million, I am not sure.”
Then he looked at Li Xiaonian.
Li Xiaonian showed them the attributes of [Earth Dragon One] and put on an indifferent look. “Look at the attribute for yourselves. If you still think it’s not worth 1 million gold coins, then let’s cancel the deal.”

In order to sell Earth Dragon One, Li Xiaonian did something on the sly. Firstly, he wiped off the traces of the Shadow from the minecart, and secondly, he transferred a large amount of the ores and armor-piercing shells to the internal space of the Shadow, leaving only a small part of them.
It wasn’t that he didn’t want to move them all out, but if he had moved everything away, it would have aroused suspicion.
Lang Burang almost fainted after reading the attributes of Earth Dragon One.
He hated Li Xiaonian even more now.
Damn it, this minecart is supposed to be mine, but it was stolen by Li Xiaonian, and now I have to spend 100 million yuan to buy it back.
Li Xiaonian glanced at Leader Taiyan and said, “It seems that Mr. Lang doesn’t want to buy it. In that case, don’t blame me for not wanting to lend it to you. After all, Earth Dragon One is too precious.”
“OK, we’ll buy it.”
Secretary Xueyue said. She knew Lang Burang too well, as well as the preciousness of the minecart. Although the price of 1 million was a little high, it was still acceptable. With this minecart, the Wolf Walk Guild would scale new heights in strength, and this deal was definitely a safe bet.
There was a flash of joy on the faces of Taiyan, Longping, and Si Mengqi, and they all looked at Lang Burang.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
Lang Burang nodded and turned to leave. “I’m going to raise money now. Tell him to get the minecart ready.”
One million gold coins were equivalent to one hundred million yuan. Not many people could come up with so much money.
“Mr. Lang, you’re really generous, unlike June, who is nothing but a narrow-minded scum.” Si Mengqi praised Lang Burang and didn’t forget to demean Li Xiaonian.
The corners of Li Xiaonian’s mouth twitched slightly, and he just endured it.
It was safe to say that Warden Si Mengqi was the most shameless NPC he had ever seen.
