Chapter 287 – Foolish Spendthrift
Hearing what Han Yan asked, a smile emerged on Jiang Chen’s face, “In no way is this a Saint weapon, only a real Saint can make a Saint weapon. The Saint is a supreme existence in the Saint Origin realm, it is extremely difficult to obtain a broken Saint weapon. But, this isn’t a scrap metal either, it’s actually a broken King Weapon.”
Han Yan was startled, he had never thought of this. “Why can’t I see anything special about it?”
“That’s because you have no knowledge about the Combat King realm. Those who’ve reached the Combat King realm are all superior people, they have mastered the Dimensional Laws, which allows them to walk through the void. I can clearly send Dimensional Law ripples from this broken sword, therefore, it must be a broken King Weapon. Exchanging it for a High-Ranked Combat Weapon is actually a big gain for me.”
Jiang Chen said.
“The fuck? Little Chen, how can you sense Dimensional Laws from this? And how can you really tell that this scrap metal piece is part of a broken King Weapon?”
Han Yan stared at Jiang Chen, speechless. After knowing Jiang Chen for so long, he had a feeling that this guy knew everything. There was no questions he couldn’t answer.
“Because my eyesight is good.”
Jiang Chen casually shrugged his shoulders. Although this explanation was pretty lame, the fact that he was a reincarnated Saint was even more ridiculous.
“Come, let’s go check out some other places.”
Jiang Chen said with a laugh. He was previously pretty disappointed with the trade fair, but after he obtained the broken piece of a King Weapon, his mood immediately became much better. And it also only cost him a High-Ranked Combat Weapon.
A High-Ranked Combat Weapon was considered a priceless treasure in the eyes of other people, but Jiang Chen didn’t mind it at all, as he had a few hundred combat weapons right now. Out of those weapons, hundreds of them were High-Ranked Combat Weapons. This was the loot he had harvested back in Inferno Hell.
“Please hold on, young master Chen Jiang, I still have a treasure with me. I was wondering if young master Chen Jiang has any interest in it.”
When the old man who just earned a High-Ranked Combat Weapon saw Jiang Chen leaving, he quickly stopped him. He had an extremely good impression of Jiang Chen right now, and he gave Jiang Chen a blossoming smile. However, his blossoming smile was pretty much an insult to flowers.
“Oh? What is it? Let me have a look.”
Jiang Chen turned around. He wanted to see what other good stuff this old man could show.
Hearing the conversation, the dispersing crowd immediately assembled once again. They immediately threw their glance at the old man. In their minds, they had branded this man a swindler, no one believe he could show them anything valuable.
Even with this mentality, when these people saw the item taken out by the old man, they were immediately stunned. Some of them even began cursing the old man’s mother.
The old man carefully took an item out from his storage ring. The items was the size of an adult palm, and rust covered its surface. It was a bronze plate.
“Fuck his sister! This old guy just can’t stop swindling! He took out more trash and claims it is a treasure. Does he really think young master Chen Jiang is an idiot?”
“Damn it, kill this old swindler! This is ridiculous, I really wish I can leave a shoe mark on his old face!”
“Everything this old cheater showed us is trash, and he still has the audacity to sell that trash like it was treasures, how ridiculous! We should ask Master Blissful to chase this cheater away from the Blissful Island, and permanently ban him from participating in the trade fair!”
The crowds were gnashing their teeth in anger, and they were close to leaping onto the old man and tearing him into pieces. This old man just didn’t know when to stop. Once again, he was bluffing with some trash. Perhaps he knew young master Chen Jiang was filthy rich, and wanted to try and con him for all his money.
“Get lost, none of you know anything!”
The old man had an angry expression on his face. After that, he turned to Jiang Chen with a flattering expression, “Brother Chen Jiang, they have eyes by fail to see, none of them can recognize my treasure’s greatness. Although it looks like a broken bronze plate, it’s really heavy! I found it some time ago, and I can’t exactly tell what it is. BUT, I’m sure it’s something extraordinary!”
“Brother Chen Jiang, don’t get conned by this old cheater again, that’s just a broken bronze plate, not a treasure!”
“Precisely! Brother Chen Jiang, this old swindler is just trying to con you! I think you should return the scrap metal you previously bought.”
The people couldn’t stand it any longer, they tried helping by advising Jiang Chen.
Jiang Chen threw an examining glance at the broken bronze plate. With his knowledge, he couldn’t see anything special about it, no Dimension Law ripples could be senses either. However, Jiang Chen still took the bronze plate. When the plate fell into his hand, he immediately felt its heavy weight.
“This is only a palm-sized bronze plate, but it actually weighs more than a thousand jin. I can’t even tell what material it’s made of. It looks like something extraordinary.”
Jiang Chen had mixed emotions in his mind.
“Big Yellow, can you sense anything special about this bronze plate?”
Jiang Chen asked.
“I can’t sense anything special about it, even my senses toward treasures. But, my intuition tells me this bronze plate isn’t as simple as it looks. Just ask that old man how much he wants to sell this for. Since we have the money, let’s buy it for now. We might put it to good use in the future.”
Big Yellow answered through his divine sense.
“How much are you selling this broken thing for?”
Jiang Chen asked.
The old man’s eyes instantly lit up when he saw Jiang Chen showing interest. He thought in his mind that he had finally found a filthy rich fool. Clenching his teeth tightly, he said, “One thousand Earth Restoration Pills.”
“What?! One thousand Earth Restoration Pills? Fuck, I’ve finally witnessed what it means to rob someone under daylight! Damn it, why don’t you just go and rob someone?”
“I can’t stand this anymore, let’s beat him to death, we must kill this conman! This old swindler must be crazy because he’s poor, he really wants to sell a broken bronze plate for one thousand Earth Restoration Pills; that’s equal to one million Mortal Restoration Pills!”
“Brother Chen Jiang, if I was you, I would immediately beat this old fool to death!”
The crowd got angry, no one could stand it any longer; this was clearly a daylight robbery. Only an idiot would be fooled by him!
“One thousand Earth Restoration Pills is too expensive. Furthermore, I have no idea what this item is for. How about I give you five hundred thousand Mortal Restoration Pills?”
Jiang Chen said.
The crowd was stunned. Each and every single person stared at Jiang Chen like they were looking at a ghost. Was there something wrong with this guy’s brain? 500,000 Mortal Restoration Pills, that’s equal to 50 Earth Restoration Pills, and it could be considered an enormous wealth for any Early Divine Core warrior.
A look of excitement emerged in the old man’s eyes. He was merely probing just now, he never thought Jiang Chen really wanted to buy it.
“Brother Chen Jiang, it’s a huge difference between 500,000 Mortal Restoration Pills and 1,000 Earth Restoration Pills, how can you negotiate the price like this?”
The old man showed a sad face. On the other side, the crowds really couldn’t stand this old man any longer. This old fool just didn’t know when to stop! Being able to sell a broken bronze plate for 500,000 Mortal Restoration Pills can really be considered a lucky strike for him.
“Since you don’t want to sell it to me, never mind then. To be frank, I feel like I’m actually suffering a loss by paying this price.”
Jiang Chen casually tossed the bronze plate into the old man’s arm, then he turned around and left.
“Hey, hey, take it easy young master Chen Jiang, I’ll sell it for 500,000 Mortal Restoration Pills! Consider this day your lucky day!”
The old man panicked when he saw Jiang Chen leaving. Without hesitation, he pulled Jiang Chen’s sleeve and tucked the bronze plate into Jiang Chen’s hand. He decided to sell it for 500,000 Mortal Restoration pills, since that was already a really huge sum. Furthermore, the bronze plate was useless for him, so he might as well exchange it for some resources he could use in his cultivation.
Jiang Chen took out a storage bag and tossed it to the old man, then he stored the bronze plate and left.
“Old man, you’re really lucky today!”
Someone teased the old man. The old man minded his own business and put away his stall. With a bright smile on his face, he happily left the place while whistling.
On the other side, when Jiang Chen walked a few steps away from the scene, the robust man who was selling the pig happily came over to him, “Young master Chen Jiang, I can tell you are a man who can see what others cannot! My Ancient Golden Mammoth only cost 100 Earth Restoration Pills, I’m sure young master Chen Jiang won’t regret buying it, as it will greatly help you in the future!”
Han Yan felt a strong desire to slap this robust man. This guy really thought of Jiang Chen as a spendthrift. Clearly, he had seen what Jiang Chen did just now, and considered Jiang Chen a filthy rich fool. If he wanted to sell this pig, the buyer must be the young master Chen Jiang in front of him, he just couldn’t let go of this great opportunity.
“Damn you! You call this stupid creature a Golden Mammoth? Woof!”
Big Yellow loudly barked at the pig. As if it had just experienced the scariest thing possible, the pig stared at the puppy in front of it. In the following second, its body started violently trembling, and within just a few breaths of time, its legs stretched, and its eyes shut; it was dead. The pig was just an ordinary animal, it could not withstand Big Yellow’s scariness.
“Haha, brother, your Golden Mammoth just died of fright!”
Someone burst into laughter.
“So you call this a Golden Mammoth? Even a dog can stare it to death, what bullshit!”
Many people started laughing out loudly.
“Young master Chen Jiang, your pet just scared my Golden Mammoth to death. We can’t just let this matter go like this, right?”
The robust man threw the pig away like he was throwing some trash away. Then, he turned to Jiang Chen. It looked like he was going to try and con him for a compensation.
“Oh? So what do you want? Why don’t I just give you this dog? But, I do wonder whether or not you actually have the guts to take it.”
Jiang Chen stared back at the robust man, interested.
Big Yellow bared his teeth. If this guy really took him, he wouldn’t be able to see tomorrow’s sun.
“Why would I want your dog? You just have to compensate me 100 Earth Restoration Pills.”
The robust man said.
Jiang Chen’s face instantly turned cold, he really did not want to spend any more time with someone like this.
Jiang Chen’s stare made the robust man’s soul tremble. He felt a chill crawling down his spine. Only now did he recall what kind of person this young man was, he was a man who could casually kill the Qingyi Sect’s core disciples. If he offended Jiang Chen now, he would later die without even knowing how. Although Jiang Chen couldn’t kill him on the island, once the trade fair ended, killing him would be a piece of cake.
Jiang Chen turned around and continued walking, leaving behind the robust man who now wore a gloomy expression.
“Hey, why don’t you ask young master Chen Jiang for compensation? He is a rich man!”
“Get lost! Daddy still want to live!”
The robust man looked back, feeling unlucky that he didn’t have the same fortune that old man did.
