Chapter 182 - Clue About the G.o.d Slayer
As s.h.i.+ Feng’s call had been set to private, outsiders could not listen in on his conversation with Unstable Devastation.
However, although Aqua Rose could not hear what s.h.i.+ Feng said, she could clearly feel the killing intent radiating off of his body.
To become friends with s.h.i.+ Feng, deepening their relations.h.i.+p, Aqua Rose would not let this chance pa.s.s her by. Thus, she made her offer.
s.h.i.+ Feng understood Aqua Rose’s intentions. He simply smiled at her and said, “Thank you for your concern, Miss Aqua. It isn’t anything big, only an annoying fly that I can kill with a slap at any time. We should continue with our business talks.”
At s.h.i.+ Feng’s immediate rejection, Aqua Rose could do nothing but relent.
After which, the two returned to their private room in the restaurant.
At this moment, however, another male youth had appeared in the private room.
This person was a knight geared with heavy-armor. Based on his appearance, this man was obviously a s.h.i.+eld Warrior; a bone s.h.i.+eld hung at his back, coupled with an exquisite, black-colored battle axe. These two pieces of equipment looked extraordinary, and one could easily tell that they were Secret-Silver rank. Moreover, this man was similar to Aqua Rose, in which they were both Level 9.
“Why are you here, Brilliant?” Aqua Rose asked, surprised at his sudden appearance.
“I only worry that others will try to scam you, so I came to check up on you. Last time, you spent tens of millions of Credits and returned with only a pile of worthless sc.r.a.p paper. This incident invoked many elders’ dissatisfaction.”
“This time, you spent another large sum of money and manpower to purchase various ores and materials. Moreover, you didn’t even notify the elders about any of your actions; they are furious right now. I’m here to tell you that, at the very least, you need their approvals in the future before you take action.”
“Come back with me and offer them an explanation for now. Otherwise, those elders will make your life difficult in the future.”
The man named Brilliant WarG.o.d shot s.h.i.+ Feng a glare. He had always treated Aqua Rose as his own woman. Meanwhile, the black-hooded s.h.i.+ Feng before him was a small character, beneath his notice. Yet, this small character actually dared to have a tryst with Aqua Rose. Immediately, Brilliant WarG.o.d tugged on Aqua Rose’s hand, intending to take her from this place.
s.h.i.+ Feng merely shrugged at Brilliant WarG.o.d’s provocation. He did not mind this man with the IQ of a monkey in the least. He simply took it as watching a monkey show.
Aqua Rose slapped away Brilliant WarG.o.d’s hand, her crescent eyebrows wrinkling slightly. She had only managed to secure her relations.h.i.+p with s.h.i.+ Feng after much difficulty and was just about to enter a proper business discussion. She did not expect Brilliant WarG.o.d to find out about it and actually came running to interrupt her. If it weren’t for her and Brilliant WarG.o.d’s families having friendly ties, she would not pay him any attention.
“Brilliant, I have important matters to discuss. Return by yourself for now. As for the matter of the Guild elders, I’ll give them an explanation when I return,” Aqua Rose said impatiently.
For her trades with s.h.i.+ Feng, she always used her own money and people. The Guild elders had no right to interfere, nor did they have the ability. Not to mention, she was an honorary elder of the Guild, so her station was similar to theirs; they had no right to involve themselves in her matters. They were merely envious that she had earned a lot of money, and they all wanted a share of the pie.
Seeing Aqua Rose’s att.i.tude, Brilliant WarG.o.d could only give up his efforts.
“Since you don’t wish to go, I’ll stay by your side to protect you. It’ll destroy others’ ideas of taking advantage of you,” Brilliant WarG.o.d glanced at s.h.i.+ Feng, his tone filled with ill intent as he spoke.
Aqua Rose became furious at his words. She and s.h.i.+ Feng were going to discuss extremely confidential trade secrets; how could she allow Brilliant WarG.o.d to listen in?
“No, you should return,” Aqua Rose spoke, her tone frosty.
Hearing Aqua Rose, Brilliant WarG.o.d grew even more indignant. He sent a wrathful glare at s.h.i.+ Feng, sending a message to s.h.i.+ Feng secretly.
“I am an elder of Twilight Echo. Brat, you better know your place and scram. Aqua is my plaything, so you are not allowed to contact her again. You should know the consequences if I discover that you’ve done otherwise.”
Brilliant WarG.o.d was usually a tyrant of a man, and n.o.body dared defy him due to his ident.i.ty. Whenever he met with a situation, he simply needed to announce his ident.i.ty, and others would immediately flee with their tails between their legs. Now that he had spoken, s.h.i.+ Feng would be no exception to this.
After s.h.i.+ Feng saw this message, he involuntarily laughed. It seemed that this Brilliant WarG.o.d had arrived to cause trouble without understanding the situation; saying that he had the IQ of a monkey gave him too much credit. His actual IQ might not even equal a dog’s. With such a wealthy prince in the Guild, it was no wonder Twilight Echo could not develop itself in the early stages of the game. It was actually due to the presence of this fool.
“Miss Aqua, I have something that I’d like you to see,” s.h.i.+ Feng smiled.
Aqua Rose grew very curious. Just what did s.h.i.+ Feng have to show her this time?
Since Brilliant WarG.o.d dared threaten s.h.i.+ Feng in such a way, s.h.i.+ Feng would act in kind. He forwarded Brilliant WarG.o.d’s message to Aqua Rose. s.h.i.+ Feng wanted this fool to know that one should be careful with their words and messages. Otherwise, accidents could occur.
“Brilliant WarG.o.d! Get out of my sight immediately! I don’t wish to see you ever again! I will definitely tell uncle and aunty about this matter! Regarding the marriage affairs between our two families, don’t even think about it from this moment onwards!” Aqua Rose’s complexion was instantly livid the moment she read the message. She already disliked Brilliant WarG.o.d. Now, not to mention publicly trying to drive s.h.i.+ Feng away, he even dared call her his plaything!
Brilliant WarG.o.d was confused. Before he could even wonder why Aqua Rose wanted to sever their relations.h.i.+p, she had already kicked him from the private room.
“I’m sorry that you had to see such a joke,” Aqua Rose apologized.
“It’s nothing. I’m used to such matters.” Not minding matters at all, s.h.i.+ Feng said, “Let’s continue discussing about our trade, then.”
At this moment, Brilliant WarG.o.d started loudly cursing outside the door, saying, “Black Flame, you despicable little man! You actually dare frame me! Get out here right now if you have the ability! I challenge you to a duel! The loser clears their level back to zero! Do you dare accept it?!”
“What? You can frame me, but can’t accept my challenge?”
Just as s.h.i.+ Feng and Aqua Rose were about to resume their business talks, Brilliant WarG.o.d finally came to a realization. It turned out that s.h.i.+ Feng had forwarded his message to Aqua Rose. He really did not think that such an incident would occur. His past actions, which had never failed him, were actually useless against s.h.i.+ Feng. However, to redeem himself, he could only insist that s.h.i.+ Feng had framed him.
“Master Black Flame, I am truly sorry about this. I’ll chase him away immediately.” This was the first time Aqua Rose had realized that Brilliant WarG.o.d was so obnoxious; his IQ was even in the negatives. With the existence of the Main G.o.d System, how could players possibly modify others’ messages and IDs?
“No need. I have my own faults in this matter, so let me deal with it,” s.h.i.+ Feng rose from his seat, walking out of the private room.
“Black Flame, you despicable little man, you finally dare to show yourself! If you are a man, accept my challenge! If you lose, you will explain to Aqua Rose that you framed me! Do you dare accept?” Brilliant WarG.o.d jeered.
“What if you lose?” s.h.i.+ Feng laughed.
“Hahaha! Can I even lose?” Brilliant WarG.o.d was incomparably arrogant. He took out a map, saying disdainfully, “If you really are lucky enough to win, this item will be yours to keep. I only obtained this map after I organized a team of hundreds of elites to kill a wild Level 10 Lord ranked Boss. This was the only item it dropped.”
Initially, s.h.i.+ Feng had little to no interest in the map Brilliant WarG.o.d held. After all, he had a clear understanding of G.o.d’s Domain. If it were a map obtained in some other country, it held no meaning to him at all. However, the moment s.h.i.+ Feng spotted the symbol of an Ash Blade on the back of the map, it instantly roused his interest.
The Ash Blade was the mark of the G.o.d Slayer. Normally, only items related to the G.o.d Slayer bear such mark.
“Master Black Flame, you can’t agree to him! He is a s.h.i.+eld Warrior, so he has a ma.s.sive innate advantage when dealing with physical-type cla.s.ses! Moreover, the Diamond Guard he wears is a Level 9 Mysterious-Iron Set Equipment. His weapon and s.h.i.+eld are also Level 9 Mysterious-Iron ranked items, and he has over 1,400 HP. Moreover, Brilliant WarG.o.d has powerful techniques, himself; even two to three physical-type cla.s.s experts attacking together wouldn’t be his match!” Aqua Rose hurriedly stopped s.h.i.+ Feng. It was simply a farce for a Swordsman to duel a s.h.i.+eld Warrior. Moreover, Black Flame was only a forger; his battle prowess was sub-par at best.
“What? Afraid?” Brilliant WarG.o.d jeered as he glared at s.h.i.+ Feng.
“Alright, I’ll agree,” s.h.i.+ Feng smiled.
