428. A Little Monk (2)
Rong Yi asked him, “How many spiritual stones are there on your body?”
“Enough to buy the whole shop.”
Rong Yi also showed no mercy, he first bought all the seeds of herbs here, then all the lower-grade kind of ingredients, finally picked some useful ingredients, and went to the next shop.
“You seem to be particularly fond of low-grade ingredients?” Yin Jinye asked.
“Don’t look down upon those inferior ingredients, they are very useful, it’s just that those cultivators in this world don’t know know how to make good use of them.”
This time, Rong Yi swept every shop in the Liancheng, and filled his storage ring, and Yin Jinye just needed to pay.
Rong Yi jokingly said to Yin Jinye, “Daddy, are these things my dowries?”
Yin Jinye’s corner of the mouth slightly curved, “Only this little already satisfies you?”
“Of course not. You have to give me your whole person.” Rong Yi happily touched the ring, thinking if he could send those ingredients back to the modern times if he sneaked into the secret channel of the Nine Void Sect. He’d have a try next time.
In the middle of the afternoon, Yin Jinye and Rong Yi went back to the inn.
Those cultivators who were waiting for Rong Yi scrambled to rush to him, “Sir Rong, we are here to buy the enchanted runes.”
Yin Jinye’s guards quickly stopped them.
Rong Yi looked at them as if looking at the shiny spiritual stones, spreading a big smile, “I do not sell the runes now. After the meeting, you can come to Guiling Town to buy them.”
Then those people had to disperse, and only five of them remained standing and all smiled at Rong Yi.
Rong Yi looked at them carefully and said with a smile, “Qi Yueshi, Zhong Ziqiao, Zhu Xiyu, and Tang Shangru?”
“I told you Rong Yi would remember us.” They walked forward happily, “You boy, where have you been these three years?”
They also heard someone challenge Rong Yi and then knew Rong Yi was back, so they specially came to visit him.
“It’s a long story.” Rong Yi asked Yin Jinye through sound transmission, “They know about my thing?”
“I didn’t mean to tell them,” Yin Jinye said. “But Bu Qi and others were afraid that someone would use your thing to take advantage of them, so they told them the truth later.”
Zhong Ziqiao patted Rong Yi on the shoulder, “It’s good to have you back.”
Rong Yi said, “Let’s go inside and talk.”
“OK.” No sooner had Qi Yueshi agreed than the girl next to him said, “No.”
Rong Yi looked at her, it was that girl in pink they saw yesterday when they just arrived, “Yueshi, this is…”
“My elder sister.”
“Oh, I see.” No wonder she got two enchanted runes around her waist.
“Why not, elder sister?” said Qi Yueshi helplessly.
Qi Yuexin said in a low voice, “Don’t blame me for being frank. I don’t object that you associate with them in private, but you are decent cultivators, while they are obviously ghost cultivators. If you go in with them, it will be bad for your and our family’s reputation.”
What she said made sense. Qi Yueshi and others looked a bit awkward. But they really wanted to talk about the old days with Rong Yi and others, but really had to think about their family.
Rong Yi patted them on the shoulders and said, “I am relieved to see that you are safe. As for catching up on old things, we will sit down and have a good talk when we are have time later.”
They looked at each other and sighed, “That’s all we can do. Let’s go back first.”
“Watch your steps.” Watching them leave, Rong Yi smiled at Yin Jinye, “they changed a lot, more masculine than before. Oh right, they should be in charge of the things of the branch of Xunyi Cabinet now, right?|
Yin Jinye replied, “Yeah, there is one branch in each of the town they are staying in, so it’d be convenient for them to run.”
As they returned to the inn, the children behind cried with great excitement, “Little baldheaded bro, we’ll take you to our room.”
Rong Yi then saw that Yao’er pulled the little monk and ran into the backyard, and he quickly stopped them, “You brought him back?”
He had been so busy buying ingredients that he did not even notice that the little monk had come with him.
Yao’er wondered, “Can’t I?”
“His senior brothers will worry if you bring him back.” Rong Yi told a guard, “You send the little monk back.”
“Yes.” The guard went before that little monk, “Little monk, which Buddhist temple are you from?”
The little monk just shook his head.
“Do you have a Buddhist name or a name?”
The little monk said, “My name is Buddha Heart.”
“Which inn are your Buddhist disciples staying at?”
The little monk shook his head again.
“What’s your senior brother’s Buddhist name?”
The little monk still shook his head.
Rong Yi, “…”
The guard, “…”
Then how to send him back?
Rong Yi said, “You go ask about which temple has lost a little monk.”
“Yes.” Then the guard left.
“Little baldheaded bro, let’s play.” Seeing that the little monk didn’t have to go, he pulled him into the backyard.
The moment the little monk turned around, his little lips raised a smile.
Yin Jinye followed Rong Yi back to the room, took out a set of black robes for him to change.
Rong Yi doubted, “Why?”
“This time we should kill Yin Houyao preemptively,” He told him through sound transmission.
Hearing that, Rong Yi quickly put on his black robes and mask and said with a smile, “When others commit assassins, they always do it at night, but we’ll do it before it gets dark.”
Yin Jinye also changed a suit of clothes and wore a mask, “To deal with him, it doesn’t need to be at night.”
Two of them jumped out of the window, hid their tracks to leave the inn.
