Chapter 75 A Windfall
“I was an orphan abandoned by my parents when I was a child and was brought back by the old dean here. I grew up here. The old dean is very good that he really makes children here have a feeling of being at home.
“However, due to limited conditions, the children in the orphanage have to leave here when they are 16 years old. I am no exception. I left the orphanage after my 16th birthday.
“With no culture, no education, and no skill, after leaving here, I wander from place to place in the society and work everywhere to make a living.
“Until one day, I met a crazy fortune-telling madness. He said that my condition was very suitable for the inheritance of stealing sect so that he passed down his set of expertise and skills of stealing to me.”
Qin Haodong nodded inwardly and thought that the six men of the Divine Mercenaries were stuck in the seventh realm of Overt Power where they were practicing until their 30s who finally reached to the eighth realm of Over Power with his help. However, this girl had already reached such a realm when she was just about 20 years old. It was clear that she had a great talent in it.
“At that time, I had no place to go, so I had been learning the skills from the old man for three months. Later, the old man left. When he left, he repeatedly told me that I must abide by the rules of stealing sect that I could just steal the ill-gotten wealth and rob the rich to help the poor.
“Later, I make a living by stealing, but all of the stolen money was brought back to the orphanage to improve the life of my brothers and sisters.”
Qin Haodong could sense that the girl was sincere and didn’t lie.
“I have seen the level of your theft. It is really high. You should be able to steal to get a lot of money according to your level. Why are you not at all well-off?”
The girl said with a bitter smile, “I originally thought the same as you, but I really come to aware that stealing is not quite easy since I really start my business.
“Due to the restrictions of the rules of stealing sect, the people who I could rob were just corrupt officials and bullies, but such kind of people are not a lot. Moreover, although these people are rich, the cash they keep in their houses are not so much, which are basically fixed assets or are kept in the bank. In this case, I could steal a little money every time.
“Especially in recent years, people buy things directly with mobile phones, and do not bring money in their pockets. This makes the business of stealing more and more difficult to do that even with the best skill it is very hard to get money.”
Qin Haodong said, “Why didn’t you steal some valuable things? You can also exchange money from these, can’t you?”
The girl shook her head and said, “Wherever I am, I am by myself, so I couldn’t find a way to sell these valuable things. If I am not careful enough, I will implicate the orphanage. Therefore, I usually steal the cash and don’t touch other things.”
“Why did you break the rules this time and steal my jadeite?”
The girl’s cheeks were reddish and she said, “The houses in the orphanage are too old. Recently, the south of the Yangtze River is in the rainy season. Many rooms of my little brothers and sisters have rain leaked into their room, and some even have the signs of collapsion.
“So I want to make more money to rebuild the houses in order to give them a better life. However, it requires a large sum of money which is quite difficult for me.
“There is just a rough stone exhibition in the exhibition center. I think that those people who go there to buy the rough stone must be the riches, so I decide to take the chance to go there. When I arrived there, I just saw the King Green Jadeite that you get, and someone even bid a billion for it.
“I was excited at that time and thought that as long as I could get that jadeite, I would have enough money to rebuild all the houses in the orphanage and even set an air conditioner in every room.
“So I decided to make an exception. Anyway, you are also a rich man that you don’t care about whether your child loste a toy or not. Therefore, I followed after you until I found that villa and got that jadiete.
“I just didn’t expect that there were such powerful guards in your places who made me hurt and let me tracked by you to here.”
After listening to what the girl said, Qin Haodong was quite moved in his mind that this girl had a sense of gratitude. It was rare that she was willing to sacrifice herself for these children in the orphanage.
He raised his hand to stop the girl’s acupuncture point, and then took the King Green Jadeite from the girl’s pocket.
The girl who was being just absent-minded and was hit by a blow, and saw the jadeite taken back by Qin Haodong. Her eyes flashed the sadness and disappointment that was difficult to conceal.
Qin Haodong did not stop, after the jadeite was put into his pocket, he gently pulled off the girl’s shirt.
“You… what are you doing?”
The girl suddenly panicked. she had just had a fearless look when she undressed herself, but now she has no such courage as that she had before. However, now her acupuncture points were controlled so she could not move at her will.
Qin Haodong stripped off the gauze that she had wrapped around her shoulder, took out a white jade bottle from his pocket and picked out some black ointment from bottle to gently apply it to the girl’s injured shoulder.
The girl only felt the wound on the shoulders cool, and the pain that she felt before disappeared. She knew that he was helping her cure the wound so that she was more relaxed at once.
The black ointment in the jadeite bottle was the latest refining bone and marrowing muscle cream developed by Qin Haodong which had a miraculous effect on such kind of wound. After applying the cream, he used the Green Wood Genuine Qi to help the girl brush the injured meridians.
Soon, the whiplash on the girl’s shoulders had been healed. Qin Haodong helped her dress her clothes and released her points.
Straightening her clothes, the girl looked at Qin Haodong with a complex look and said, “Big brother, thank you.”
“You’re welcome, I’m a doctor, and it’s no bother.”
The girl hesitated, bit her lip and said, “If you are so rich, can’t you help these children?”
“Sure, I am really moved by your story, but this jadeite is a gift that I promised to give my daughter so I can’t give it to you.”
When the girl fell back into the disappointment, Qin Haodong took out a cash check from his pocket and gave it to her.
“This is 30 million. I have given you as much as I could, but it was enough for rebuilding the house of the orphanage.”
The girl looked at the check in front of her eyes and looked at Qin Haodong quizzically. “Big brother, are you really willing to help us?”
Qin Haodong smiled and said, “At least for now, if you don’t take it away, I am not sure about it.”
“Big Brother, thank you!” The girl took the check and then began to take off her clothes.
Qin Haodong rushed to stop her arm. “What are you going to do?”
The girl looked feelingly. “Big Brother, you are willing to spare so much money to help us. I know that there is no free lunch in the world, so I only could repay you with my own body.”
Qin Haodong said, “You needn’t do so. Now that I want to help you, I don’t think of any return.”
The girl flopped down on her knees in front of Qin Haodong. “Big Brother, I represent all the children of the orphanage to thank for your kindness!”
“I have said that you needn’t do so. If there is not anything else, I will go back.” Qin Haodong said, lifting up the girl and was going to leave.
“Big brother, wait a minute.” The girl stopped Qin Haodong.
“Big brother, I have been so embarrassed to take you so much money at once. I have some things here that you can take a look at and decide whether they can be useful to you. Maybe it could be a compensation for you.”
The girl said and knelt down, pulling out a snakeskin bag from the bottom of the bed. After opening up, there were some antiques such as vases, jades and the like.
“What is this?” Qin Haodong asked.
“There was a corrupt official last year who corrupt the money which should be delivered to the orphanage. I went to their home with great anger, but I didn’t find much cash, so I finally brought all the antiques from their house.
“After I got these things, I didn’t find any way to sell these antiques so I just threw them under the bed and kept them there. Big brother, take a loot at them. If you need them, you can take them away.”
While saying, she dumped everything in the bag on the ground for Qin Haodong to choose.
Qin Haodong lowered his head and glanced at these things. He knew that none of them has a little Spiritual Qi which was obvious that they were fakes. It seemed that the corrupt official was also a layman that he was just collecting such kind of worthless things.
“They are all fakes that can not sell for a little money. You just sell them as much as you can.”
Qin Haodong said and was going to turn around. Suddenly, his eyes were attracted by a ring next to a vase.
The ring looked gray and dark, and there was no condition of the good thing at all, but he looked very fascinated and even shook a little when he reached out.
Holding the ring in his hand, Qin Haodong slowly closed his eyes. At this moment, he had clearly a sense that it was a storage ring and was in the top class of the top class.
In the cultivation world, the storage ring could be seen everywhere which was and it was almost an essential of a cultivation artist. This thing could form a three-dimensional space independently which was a moving warehouse that it was convenient to store things so that it was the favorite of every cultivation artist.
However, on the earth, the storage ring became scarce. Although he had the ability to develop one, there was no original material with the space characteristics, thus it was impossible for him to develop one.
When he just returned to the earth, he was very uncomfortable without a storage ring. He did not expect that today he could encounter one accidentally.
The storage ring would only appear in the form of a ring after the success of its refining and the death of the owner. Once the owner was recognized, it would shape an independent space on the owner’s body.
This ring was obviously not a new product, so the owner must have died. The owner of the storage ring must be a cultivation artist. A cultivation artist was likely to leave a large number of instruments and articles after he died. It made Qin Haodong very excited in his mind.
After all, in the earth, a place lack of Spiritual Qi, it was too difficult to cultivate oneself step by step. Only by an external force could we improve our cultivation.
However, in front of the girl’s face, he was not suitable to recognize the Lord of the storage ring immediately, so he just tried to hold back the impulse of his heart.
“I want this thing.” Qin Haodong said.
“Well, big brother takes it as you like.”
Seeing that he liked the ring, the girl was very happy and there was no reluctance in her eyes.
Qin Haodong packed the storage ring away. In his heart, this ring was priceless, that was, even ten 30 million couldn’t buy it.
From this point of view, he was very grateful to this girl. if the girl hadn’t had stolen his own jadeite, he would not have such a big surprise.
“How long will you stay here for this cultivation?” asked Qin Haodong.
“It has been almost half a year. It was very easy to make an improvement in the cultivation before. It takes at most three months to develop to a new realm. However, I’ve gone middle-of-the-road where I reached to the eighth realm of Overt Power. No matter how many times I try, I could not make any improvement.”
Mentioning about this thing, the girl had a pity, but she didn’t aware that without depending on any force. It was very strange and scarce for people to develop to the eighth realm of Overt Power in such a few years. Even for some disciples in some sects, they could not have such a speed.
Qin Haodong took out a Little Strengthening Pill and sent it to the girl. “Swallow it. I will help you break through it. It can be regarded as a compensation for you.”
“What? Big Brother, you’re not mistaken, right? Can you really help me break through?”
The girl’s face was mixed with excitement and horror.
“To be honest, this ring is very precious and very important to me.” Qin Haodong said, “Don’t doubt me, take this pill. I will help you break through immediately.”
The girl didn’t hesitate anymore, grabbed the Little Strengthening Pill and sent it to her mouth. Then, she sat cross-legged down on the bed.
