Chapter 1531: Wow, this is very extravagant

Nameless Nie nodded. “Of course! Don’t underestimate Old Pal Shen, but he’s one of the few SSS-level mercenaries at Scarlet Flames Academy!”
“3S level?” Ye Wanwan looked surprised and started to re-examine Eldest Young Master Shen.
3S level could be considered the peak of martial arts already. Unless they encountered top bosses in the Independent State, they could do whatever they wanted.
There were even some top 3S-level mercenaries who could challenge the top bosses of the Independent State and defeat them. Of course, Piece of Sh*t, Yi Shuihan, was an exception to this.
Ye Wanwan couldn’t help but feel confused. Didn’t people previously say that the Shen family was only composed of businessmen and they didn’t emphasize martial arts…? So why was the eldest young master of the Shen family a 3S-level mercenary student at the Scarlet Flames Academy?!
She would have a whole new level of respect for Eldest Young Master Shen from now on.
“Hey, what did I tell you? Don’t refer to me as Senior Brother Shen! Call me by my mercenary alias!” Eldest Young Master Shen furrowed his brows.
The 3S-level mercenary from Scarlet Flames Academy was startled before nodding frantically. “Yes… Senior Brother Grim Reaper, I made a mistake.”
After they reached a certain level, every mercenary would start using their alias instead of their own name.
For example, even though very few people knew Nameless Nie’s name in the Independent State, if someone said Nameless Nie’s alias, it would be thunder to everyone’s ears. However, Ye Wanwan also didn’t know Nameless Nie’s alias either.
“Grim… Grim Reaper?!” Ye Wanwan looked at Eldest Young Master Shen incredulously, her mouth slightly agape.
An elder from the Fearless Alliance once mentioned that a 3S-level mercenary student from the Scarlet Flames Academy whose alias was Grim Reaper used to run amuck without any inhibition in the Independent State… Their martial strength was tremendous!
Ye Wanwan never would’ve expected the eldest young master of the Shen family to be a 3S-level mercenary of Scarlet Flames Academy—Grim Reaper…
“You’re Grim Reaper?” Ye Wanwan looked at Eldest Young Master Shen reverently.
“The one and only.” Eldest Young Master Shen smiled.
Before Ye Wanwan could continue worshipping him, Nameless Nie whispered in Ye Wanwan’s ear, “Old Pal Shen bought his title with money…”
“Bought it with money?” Ye Wanwan looked baffled. What does he mean?
“Ahem…” Nameless Nie looked embarrassed as he quietly explained to Ye Wanwan. “Em… Two years ago, Old Pal Shen sought out Grim Reaper of Scarlet Flames Academy and used a large amount of money to buy his alias… So in terms of copyright, ‘Grim Reaper’ now belongs to Old Pal Shen…”
Ye Wanwan was dumbfounded. This kind of maneuver existed?! You could buy an alias too?!
“You have to understand the principle: Money will make the Devil turn millstones.” Nameless Nie giggled.
“Then… Eldest Young Master Shen’s 3S mercenary ranking couldn’t have been bought too, right?” Ye Wanwan asked.
“Oh… That definitely isn’t bought.” Nameless Nie shook his head frantically. “A mercenary’s ranking is decided according to their contribution level. Old Pal Shen contributed a large number of weapons to Scarlet Flames Academy, renovated the entire academy, and built hundreds of luxurious dormitories… His contributions to Scarlet Flames Academy were immense, so he used his contribution points to squeeze into the ranks of 3S mercenaries…”
“…” How is this not a freaking purchase?!
“Don’t underestimate Young Master Shen. He completely fits the qualifications of a 3S-level mercenary and has completed the most difficult, highest starred mission of Scarlet Flames multiple times!” Nameless Nie continued.
“For example?” Ye Wanwan didn’t understand.
“I remember one of the missions was stealing something from Asura… Think about it, which normal mercenary would dare to rob Asura? However, Old Pal Shen dared to rob Asura single-handedly.” Nameless Nie gave a thumbs-up.
“And then?” Ye Wanwan found it unbelievable that Asura just allowed the matter to slide.
“And then… Old Pal Shen gave dozens of millions of dollars to Asura, and this matter was resolved…” Nameless Nie answered.
Ye Wanwan: “…”
Wow, this is very extravagant…
