Starting With A Space Battleship - Chapter 35
Chapter 35: Chicken Feed
No one could deny that the Wolf Walk Guild was deep-pocketed.
Not long after Lang Burang left, he returned with his secretary Xueyue again.
“We’ve got the money ready. Take out the minecart.” Xueyue stared at Li Xiaonian and said.
Li Xiaonian shook his head and took out a contract. “Before that, sign this agreement. Its content is very simple. You shall not use [Earth Dragon One] against me.”
The ground speed of Earth Dragon One was up to 230 km/h. At the novice base, it was definitely a big killer. He certainly didn’t want to be chased and killed by his own minecart.
Xueyue refused. “No, a deal is a deal. We’ll not be subject to any restrictions.”
Li Xiaonian shrugged. “In this case, let’s cancel this deal. Do you think I’ll be so stupid as to sell the Earth Dragon One to you and let you use it against me? Anyway, I own Earth Dragon One now. If you keep pestering me, I’ll continue to use this minecart to hunt your guild’s players.”
As he said, Li Xiaonian looked at NPC Taiyan. “Leader, as you can plainly see, it’s not that I don’t want to trade, but that they don’t want to. You can’t imprison me for this.”
Taiyan turned his eyes to Si Mengqi.
Getting his hint, Si Mengqi said to Lang Burang, “Mr. Lang, we Skyfire Base can buy this minecart. Of course, we may need to borrow some money from you against some equipment we own.”
Lang Burang was stunned, hesitating for quite a while before he said helplessly, “Okay, we’ll sign this agreement.”
The two sides soon concluded the transaction.
System: “1,000,000 gold coins transferred into your account. The balance: 1001131.24 gold coins.”
Seeing the deal done, the most excited ones were these NPC bosses.
Si Mengqi immediately said, “Mr. Lang, Earth Dragon One already belongs to your guild. I hope you can arrange manpower as soon as possible to go to high-level cities for help. Wufeng, as the Lord of Hell, has horrible abilities. He can control all the monsters in the wilderness. Now it seems calm, but it won’t be long before the base is surrounded by countless monsters.”
“Okay, I’ll send some of my men to do it.”
The NPCs were anxious, and Lang Burang was even more anxious. After all, the Skyfire Base was their Wolf Walk Guild’s base camp and they couldn’t afford to lose it.
Lang Burang and Xueyue left.
Li Xiaonian consciously handed the 500,000 rebate to the deputy leader, Taiyan.
Receiving such a huge sum of money, Taiyan forced a smile. “You are very good. If you hadn’t made that big mistake, maybe we could be friends.”
“Yes, I know I made a big mistake, but I’ll try my best to make up for it.” After a pause, Li Xiaonian made another request. “Leader, can you give me a round-trip pass to Skyfire Base? Just in case. With the pass, I’ll immediately set off for the Blood Demon City, seeking a chance to kill Wufeng, and doing everything I can to make up for my mistake.”
Killing Wufeng was an SSS-level mission, and the difficulty was beyond imagination.
He wouldn’t rest his hope on the Wolf Walk Guild. After all, the [Defend Our Homeland] mission was mandatory. If this mission failed, he would become a refugee like all the other players in this base, and his attributes would be permanently reduced by 30%.
Others could delete this account and register a new one, but he couldn’t.
Taiyan pondered and then asked seriously, “Now you don’t have the Earth Dragon One. Are you sure you can break through Wufeng’s blockade? Besides, every pass is precious because passes are limited and cannot be replenished. Normally, we won’t give people a pass unless we have to.”
“I can’t guarantee that I’ll succeed, but if I do, our Skyfire Base will have more hope of survival. Yes, the Wolf Walk Guild is powerful, but I am not much weaker than them.”
Seeing that Li Xiaonian was so confident, Taiyan sighed and took out a thin piece of purple metal. “Here you are. I hope you won’t let us down.”
[Seal Voucher]: Skyfire Base’s exclusive pass, with mysterious power. Consuming the internal power of this voucher can tear open the seal barrier of Skyfire Base and return to Skyfire Base. (Note: Only players coming out of Skyfire Base can use it)
“Thank you, Master Taiyan, you’re a great leader.”
Li Xiaonian was overjoyed.
The novice base was just a transitional area for novice players to adapt to the game. The real charm of the “Star Wind” lay in the major cities.
In his previous life, he was blacklisted by the Wolf Walk Guild, unable to communicate with NPCs, unable to go to the wilderness, so he had little knowledge of the novice base, but as for the Blood Demon City, he was as familiar with it as to his home.
System: “Dear Mr. Li Xiaonian, someone is calling you in the real world. If you need to quit the game, please find a safe area to avoid property loss.”
Li Xiaonian quit the game.
The first thing he saw was that his sister, Li Xiaoyue, was bouncing on his bed.
“Li Xiaonian, why is your bed softer and more comfortable than mine? I want to swap rooms with you.”
“Okay, no problem.”
Although he lived in the master bedroom, all the mattresses in the entire villa were of the same brand. It was purely psychological that her sister felt his mattress was better. He asked, “What’s up?”
“Well, a beautiful sister is waiting for you. She’s in the living room.”
Li Xiaonian checked the time, and it was already ten-thirty in the morning.
Too absorbed in the game, he had forgotten the time. No, his life was too irregular now. He should get up early for exercise and take his sister jogging with him.
After finishing the morning wash, Li Xiaonian walked out of the room.
At a glance, he saw Ling Baifei’s cousin, Officer Luo Wen.
Luo Wen was sitting on the sofa with a frown. Seeing Li Xiaonian coming out, she said crossly, “You are really busy. You just won’t go to the police station to give a statement unless I come to pick you up, right?”
He had promised to go to the police station today to give a statement and identify the murderer, but he was so absorbed in the game that he forgot it.
“Humph.” Luo Wen snorted coldly.
Li Xiaonian handed his sister two hundred yuan. “Let’s still order takeaway today. I have to run a few errands today.”
“Hehe, okay.” Li Xiaoyue narrowed her eyes with joy.
When Li Xiaonian noticed the smile of this little moneygrubber, his heart did a flip and he warned, “Don’t buy the food too cheap. Eat nutritious and quality-guaranteed food.”
“Li Xiaonian, you’re such a nag. Isn’t it rude to have a beautiful young lady wait for you for so long? Just go about your business.” Li Xiaoyue urged Li Xiaonian to leave.
Helpless, Li Xiaonian could only hurry out of the house and boarded Luo Wen’s police car.
On the way to the police station, Luo Wen said lightly, “I envy you for having such a cute sister.”
Cute? She was actually a little devil, OK? She liked nothing better than to make trouble for him
However, Li Xiaonian simply said, “Thanks.”
Luo Wen smiled faintly. “You want to give your family the best living conditions. There’s nothing wrong with it, but are you sure you can afford an expensive villa? I just glimpsed that the trash basket at your house was full of takeaway boxes.”
“It means, on the big day of moving into a new home yesterday, you only ordered takeaway.”
Luo Wen continued. “I don’t mean to offend you. Although you are confident, I don’t think you can afford the various expenses of the villa. First of all, you need to pay me several hundred thousand yuan per month for the house; secondly, You’ll have to buy a car and it can’t be cheap. Otherwise, it won’t fit the villa, and you’ll have a lot of trouble getting around; thirdly, the property fee for the villa is not cheap, which is a few thousand yuan a month. ”
“In addition, there are some hidden costs. For example, your family’s clothing. Although I don’t believe that the clothes make the man, people will mistake you as servants of the owner of the house instead of the owner because of your clothing.”
Li Xiaonian’s face turned dark. “What are you trying to say?”
Luo Wen finally said her purpose. “I mean, if you want to back out of the deal, I can take back the villa and return the 600,000 you paid in advance. Besides, you and your family can live in the villa for two years for free.”
Last night, she had investigated Li Xiaonian’s family conditions and found that his family couldn’t afford the expensive villa at all. By taking back the villa, she could help relieve Li Xiaonian’s stress, and mortgage the villa to the bank for a loan. And then she could buy two villas with the loan and wait for the villa price to rise. This was a safe bet.
However, Li Xiaonian simply said, “Cousin, if you feel the price is too low, for the sake of Bai, I can compensate you for some money. By the way, now that you’ve come, can you call your lawyer over? I want to pay you the balance in a lump sum.”
“In a lump sum?” Luo Wen’s eyes widened.
Distracted, she almost drove the police car into the roadside railing. Fortunately, the brake system saved her.
Li Xiaonian smiled triumphantly. “Cousin, do I look like I’m bragging? I told you I’m a genius. Making money is easy for me.”Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
The Earth Dragon One was sold to Lang Burang for 50 million yuan. He wanted to pay off the villa all at once so that he could live more at ease.
Luo Wen ignored Li Xiaonian’s words and asked again, “Let me check with you again, 16 million, in a lump sum, right?”
“Yep, isn’t it just chicken feed? Maybe I couldn’t afford it yesterday, but I definitely can today.” Li Xiaonian replied affirmatively.
Luo Wen’s face flushed red. Thinking of the words she just said, she wished she could find a hole to hide in even though she was a battle-hardened policewoman. This was just too embarrassing!
