After glaring at Fang Duoduo, Zhao Xiaochun immediately returned to her lovely and elegant appearance and stepped forward to say, “Handsome, my name is Zhao Qingcheng. My courtesy name is Xiaochun, and my art name is Beauty. My home is in the Royal Capital. I’m a virtuous lady. Can I have your contact number?”
Fang Duoduo immediately took three steps to the side, as if he did not know Zhao Xiaochun. He could not help but ridicule, Zhao Xiaochun will never cure her smitten sickness.
At that moment, he suddenly saw a familiar figure walking to the young man clad in black. Liu Jie walked to Lin Yuan’s and Wen Yu’s side and said, “Lin Yuan, Wen Yu, I’ve made you guys wait for a long time.”
Fang Duoduo immediately walked forward and gave Liu Jie a strong pat on his shoulder before saying, “Liu Jie, you’re finally back!”
Although Liu Jie’s return had not yet been announced in the news by the Radiance Federation’s officials, the Radiance Hundred Sequence people already knew that he was going to participate in the Radiance Hundred Sequence competition this year.
Two years ago, Liu Jie had been Sequence #39 in the Radiance Hundred Sequence. Even though he had been missing for two years and his current strength was unknown, regardless of whether his strength had not improved at all, he had no problem being ranked at Radiance Hundred Sequence #70 to #80.
The fact that Liu Jie had come back to participate in the Radiance Hundred Sequence competition proved that his source-type lifeform, Insect Queen, had fully recovered.
Fang Duoduo and Liu Jie had met each other more than once both in the Radiance Hundred Sequence competition and the Star Web Celestial Stairway duels.
Fang Duoduo had always kept in mind about Liu Jie’s terrifying strength. None of the Radiance Hundred Sequence people knew why Liu Jie had left the Radiance Hundred Sequence back then. Therefore, besides acknowledging Liu Jie’s strength, Fang Duoduo also respected him.
Liu Jie nodded and greeted Fang Duoduo before he said to Zhao Xiaochun, who was smitten with him, “Hey, Zhao Xiaochun. How come you’re still a smitten freak after two years?”
Compared to Fang Duoduo, Liu Jie was clearly a little more familiar with Zhao Xiaochun. He had teamed up with her for missions in the past.
Upon hearing Liu Jie call her a smitten freak, Zhao Xiaochun seethed with anger. “Liu Jie! I actually wanted to invite you for a meal, yet you actually called me a smitten freak! In that case, you’ll have to treat me to a meal instead!”
As Zhao Xiaochun said that, Lin Yuan saw a glimmer of anticipation in her eyes when she mentioned having a meal.
Liu Jie hurriedly waved his hand. “I’m afraid the restaurant owner would kick me out if I brought you for a meal. None of the restaurants in the Royal Capital dare hold any eating competitions because of you. Are you not aware of that?”
Upon hearing that, Zhao Xiaochun stole a glance at Lin Yuan, wishing she could immediately rush up to Liu Jie and cover his mouth.
She could not wait to have a huge duel with Liu Jie and Fang Duoduo on Star Web and somewhat doubted whether she could still set up the image of a virtuous lady in front of the handsome guy.
Fang Duoduo’s attention was focused on the Class 2 Creation Master retainer knight crest on Liu Jie’s chest. Ever since Liu Jie had walked over, Fang Duoduo had noticed that when Liu Jie stopped by the young man in black, he had deliberately lagged by half a shoulder.
At first, Fang Duoduo thought nothing of it, but when he saw Liu Jie’s Class 2 Creation Master retainer crest and recalled Liu Jie’s previous behavior, he immediately determined that the young man in black before him was the Creation Master that Liu Jie had sworn to.
Otherwise, given Liu Jie’s character and status, he would not have deliberately lagged behind the young man in black by half a shoulder.
Fang Duoduo did not understand why Liu Jie would choose to become the retainer of a Class 2 Creation Master. However, he knew that if this young man in front of him had become a Class 2 Creation Master at this age, he was really remarkable.
As a member of the Dragon Gate Guild Club’s main team, and being a Radiance Hundred Sequence member with Long Tao, Fang Duoduo could be said to be very familiar with Long Tao.
This young man in black before him looked like he was only 17 to 18 years old. At 18 years old, Long Tao was just merely a Class 1 Creation Master, and only when he was almost 20 years old did he become a Class 2 Creation Master.
Fang Duoduo took a step forward, walked up to Lin Yuan, and extended his hand before saying, “Hello, let’s get to know each other. My name is Fang Duoduo. I’m 24 years old this year. I like to eat meat and don’t like to go out with Zhao Xiaochun.”
When Lin Yuan saw Fang Duoduo greet him first, he extended his hand and shook his hands before replying, “My name is Lin Yuan. I’m 18 years old this year. I like to eat meat too.”
Fang Duoduo’s eyes lit up. “You love to eat meat too! You sure have good taste!”
When Zhao Xiaochun saw Fang Duoduo shaking hands with Lin Yuan, she extended her hand right away as well. “My name is Zhao Qingcheng. My courtesy name is Xiaochun, and my art name is Beauty. I’m 21 years old this year. I love to read and don’t like to eat anything! Because I hate food.”
Lin Yuan’s brows jumped as he looked at the table with only one piece of cake left. He could not help but want to say, If she’s like this when she hates food, what about when she doesn’t hate food?
Fang Duoduo simply could not stand it anymore and immediately pulled Zhao Xiaochun before saying, “I’ll take her inside first and wait for the auction. It’s nice to meet you, Lin Yuan.” Then he dragged her toward the VIP seat of the auction.
Liu Jie also had a helpless look on his face. “Zhao Xiaochun has always been this nonsensical.”
He then said very seriously, “However, Zhao Xiaochun is very strong. When I left the Radiance Hundred Sequence two years ago, she was Radiance Hundred Sequence #36, ranked three places in front of me. Last year, she reached #21. I took a careful look at the duels of this year’s Sequence members two days ago. She’s likely to be ranked in the top 15! She’s considered a formidable newcomer.”
Lin Yuan was a little surprised that this girl—who had said she hated food yet was clearly a glutton—was so talented and among the top in the Radiance Hundred Sequence, where there were many geniuses. One should never judge a book by its cover.
Lin Yuan had merely come to participate in the private auction, so he did not expect he would actually get to know two Radiance Hundred Sequence members.
Regarding Fang Duoduo mentioning Black, he had also guessed what was going on. From their conversation, Lin Yuan knew that they were members of the guild club, so these two were looking for him to join their team. However, he had no plans of joining other guild clubs.
Lin Yuan, Liu Jie, and Wen Yu walked to the VIP seats and sat down, ready to participate in the upcoming private auction. When the three of them walked to the VIP seats, they attracted a lot of attention. Of course, most of the focus was on Liu Jie.
Almost everyone present had a certain identity. Such a private auction held by a king-class expert squad had strict entry requirements. There were even quite a few king-class experts sitting in the room among them. The auction had attracted most people to come by releasing news of three source-type items.
Moreover, in order to consolidate resources for this private auction, the king-class expert squad had taken out a lot of treasures that were not quite useful to their members.
Soon, in less than ten minutes, the auction officially started. At that moment, Lin Yuan suddenly heard a familiar voice that he had not heard in a long time in his head.
