Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
“Blinding one eye… $500. If you want follow-up service and a broken leg, it’ll cost $200. If you want someone killed, that’ll be $1000, Sis Feng,” the curly-haired man mumbled to himself.
Ye Wanwan: “…”
“Oh right, Sis Feng… how many people do you plan to kill today? We have a discount: Kill 10 and you get 1 free, kill 20 and you get 3 free.” The curly-haired man looked at Ye Wanwan.
“Are you… truly that poor…?” Ye Wanwan couldn’t control her lips from twitching.
“Ah…” The curly-haired man sighed lightly and shook his head. He quietly asked her, “Sis Feng, considering your friendship with Lord Nie, don’t you know why we’re so poor?”
Ye Wanwan shook her head. How would I know?
“In truth… it’s like this. Back then, Lord Nie was full of youthful vigor and had several serious explosive clashes with Patriarch Nie and Madam Nie. After that, he swore he’d never use a penny from the Nie family. If he used even a penny from the Nie family, his whole family would die…” the curly-haired man explained with a mysterious expression.
Ye Wanwan didn’t know whether to cry or laugh after hearing that. No wonder Nameless Nie was so poor and considered money as important as his life despite being the eldest young master of the Nie family. It turned out he truly was poor.
Ye Wanwan could understand that kind of situation though. During Nameless Nie’s argument with his parents when he was younger, he said some harsh things like never using the Nie family’s money simply to retain his pride.
Also, Nameless Nie’s oath was very problematic. If he used the Nie family’s money, his whole family would die…
This way, even if Nameless Nie begged on his knees, Madam Nie and Patriarch Nie wouldn’t give a single penny to Nameless Nie…
However, Ye Wanwan was still confused. “Isn’t Nameless Nie a mercenary… Isn’t being a mercenary very profitable…?”
The curly-haired man wanted to cry. “Sis Feng, that’s true… but the mercenary business is in a slump and Lord Nie swore to revitalize the mercenary industry and would accept reasonable missions free of charge. He accepts some living expenses for compensation at most.”
“Everyone knew about this. Hence, although the mercenary industry did start blooming again because of Lord Nie, Lord Nie has to suffer for the sake of his pride, so he only accepts a few thousand at most for missions. We can’t help it; we have to obey the rules set by Lord Nie.”
Ye Wanwan: “…”
This was indeed something that Nameless Nie would do…
Currently, everyone was staring at Ye Wanwan and her group with furrowed brows, and some people looked surprised and incredulous.
This was a conference organized by Lord Asura, but President Fearless allowed her subordinates to commit physical assault in this type of setting and act so viciously. Moreover, the other party was the Yan family!
“President Fearless… aren’t your actions trampling on the Yan family and Lord Asura’s faces?” Patriarch Yan and several higher-ups from the Yan family stepped forward.
“You vicious b*tch, how could you?!” Yan Yun stared at Ye Wanwan icily. “Originally, our Yan family was generous and forgiving about the matter last time and wasn’t going to make you pay for it. Yet, we gave you an inch and you wanted a mile…”
Ye Wanwan’s brows locked together. She invited public outrage…
“One, two, three, four, five… six, seven, eight, nine, ten…” The curly-haired man lifted his right hand and used his finger to count the members of the Yan family.
Then the curly-haired man pulled out his calculator and plugged in some numbers. He placed the calculator in front of Ye Wanwan and said with an ingratiating smile, “Sis Feng… look, there’s a total of 14 people in the Yan family. Based on the headcount, it’ll cost $1000 to kill each person and $18000 to kill 14 people.”
