AST 2393 – Comparing Riches with Qian Duoduo, Beautiful Culinary Demon King
Qing Shui was speechless; the man wanted to compete in everything. These were the Nine Continents, though the same goes for anywhere else. It was rumored that such occurrence was normal in his previous life, but Qing Shui wasn’t able to even go near such circle of society then.
The young man was stunned by Qing Shui’s words and hesitated as though there were words stuck at the tip of his tongue. Qing Shui took out a huge stack of banknotes then and distributed it. Naturally, he handed them over to the women’s hands. He had too much of these and had many Interspatial Silk Sachets full of them. Coincidentally, Qing Shui was at a loss as to what to do with them, finding it a pity to throw them away.
The notes were gone after distributing out to more than a dozen people before he set his attention back at the young man. Qing Shui hadn’t wanted to provoke him, but he truly disapproved of such losers.
“Have I surpassed you now? Am I a man now? Why the pretense of riches when you have no money? Hurry up and scram, don’t embarrass yourself any further.” Qing Shui smiled as he waved his hand dismissively.
“Alright, rascal, you want to compare riches with me? Then let’s do it. My surname is Qian. I’m Qian Duoduo.” Holding up a huge stack, he distributed it out. However, he stopped after giving out to twenty people.
Qing Shui held out another stack and matched the twenty headcounts as he gave them out. This way, Qing Shui would have distributed to thirty people. At the sight of it, Qian Duoduo took out another stack and gave them out to his fortieth.
Soon, both sides had given out to fifty, not a cent less.
The situation attracted a crowd and news of it had reached the boss of the Thousand Miles Waft of Fragrance, the Culinary Demon King. She didn’t come out and had instead switched to a room which allowed her to watch the scene.
“They’re all men, I wonder who would back down first,” said someone in the crowd as though they were afraid that the situation wouldn’t worsen further on its own.
“Qian Duoduo’s family has an endless amount of money. Qian Duoduo has always spent money like water; spending money recklessly isn’t uncommon for him. Who is this young lad? How did he get involved with Qian Duoduo?”
“Regardless of his identity, anyone who clashes against Qian Duoduo is a fool, especially when it’s about money.”
“The Qian Clan is a super clan in this region, with loads of money and formidable warriors. I wonder how they produced an offspring like Qian Duoduo. This loser is greatly doted on by the Qian Clan’s Elder. Elder Qian is always elated after Qian Duoduo has squandered his money. There are many who don’t understand the situation.”
“The Qian Clan is mostly filled with busy warriors. To some extent, a character like Qian Duoduo can spread the reputation of the Qian Clan. This was a form of declaration. Without Qian Duoduo, who would have known that the Qian Clan was rich? This is a message; Qian Duoduo’s well-being would also prove that the Qian Clan was fine.”
With a smile, Qing Shui held out another stack of money, double the thickness from before and distributed all of it. Such a huge stack was at least a few million taels. It was practically a windfall.
Qian Duoduo watched Qing Shui give them out without even batting an eye.
Although Qian Duoduo spent money recklessly like water, an amount above million taels was still significant. He had already given out 520 thousand taels previously. With the number of people surrounding them, along with his prideful nature, he continued distributing in huge stacks.
Once he was done, Qian Duoduo tilted his head upward as he regarded Qing Shui. “You have guts. Continue, then!”
Qing Shui took out five million taels at that. Right in front of Qian Duoduo, he gave them out in an instant. “Man up if you’re one. Don’t embarrass the Qian Clan.”
Qing Shui smiled warmly.
Qian Duoduo’s body swayed slightly. The Qian Clan was rich. Forget five million, they would have been able to fork out 500 million taels if they wanted. However, Qian Duoduo as a single clansman couldn’t. Currently, he didn’t have five million taels on him. He only had a little more than three million taels left.
Qian Duoduo had brought a total of five million taels at first, and that was no small amount. Even indulging in drinks and pleasures, it would have been enough to last him for three to five years.
Watching the beads of perspiration on Qian Duoduo’s forehead, Qing Shui mocked. “Walking around like a boss when you have no money, aren’t you embarrassed? You’ve run out just like that and yet you had the cheek to ridicule others? Why don’t you shove it up your ass and scram? Seeing that face of yours is so disgusting.”
“Ah, I’m going to kill you! All of you, kill him!” Qian Duoduo became hysterical, growling as he lunged towards Qing Shui.
Qian Duoduo’s lackeys followed suit.
Qing Shui raised his hand and began whipping them across the face, just as how normal people fought. It wasn’t quick, and normal folks would be able to see it clearly. Qing Shui whipped them across their faces in sequence. One was cast aside from the impact, leaving only a few teeth left in his mouth.
“What are you doing? Don’t you know the rules of the Thousand Miles Waft of Fragrance? Go far away if you want to fight, I have a business to run.” A mature yet elegant voice rang out.
Qing Shui was stunned as he caught sight of the mature woman. He couldn’t tell her age but could speculate that she wasn’t young. Even so, there wasn’t any sign of wrinkles on her. She was mature, just like a ripened peach with a well-rounded bottom. She was tall even compared to Qing Shui; her features exquisite with a gaze as deep as a bottomless ocean.
She had a sharp nose and a pair of proportionate lips which were on the thicker side. It didn’t affect her beauty and had instead increased her alluring factor. She had a long neck, as well as a huge and perky chest. That was the first thing men would have noticed when they saw her.
It left people with dry mouth. This was only natural as the woman was alluring, sexy and mature, tempting to men at any stage.
“Ah, Boss Chen. Sorry, sorry!” Qian Duoduo bowed in apology.
“Say, Master Qian, forget it. What are you all waiting for? Quick. Thank Master Qian for his generosity. Master Qian, why don’t you head back and rest first?” the woman sighed.
The serving girls bent at their waist and thanked Master Qian gleefully once more.
Qian Duoduo glared at Qing Shui with an indescribable resentment in his eyes then bowed to the woman before taking his leave.
Qing Shui could now confirm that the woman was the Culinary Demon King, but she didn’t have the Demon King’s blood in her. This confused Qing Shui. Wasn’t this something that Demon Kings should have? A necessity?
Qing Shui knew that the woman was the Culinary Demon King because of her body. He could feel that she once had had the Demon King’s blood, and it should still be there in her body. Yet, as unique as it was, it was no longer the Demon King’s blood. It had an ability which was even stronger than the Demon King’s blood but without its corruption.
Qing Shui’s thoughts shifted; perhaps the hope for Tantai Lingyan resided in this woman.
“We don’t welcome you here. You should leave!” The woman directed her words at Qing Shui, her gaze ice cold.
Qing Shui knew that the woman had figured out his identity. “This is the first I’ve stooped to this level. Are you saying that you’re chasing me off even after the amount of money I’ve spent?”
“What are you all waiting for? Thank him.”
The serving girls bowed to Qing Shui. “Thank you, Sir, for your reward.”
Qing Shui rubbed his nose. This woman was blunt. After the amount of money spent without touching anything, he still couldn’t enter the Thousand Miles Waft of Fragrance. Still, the woman had some secrets to her which made him unwilling to try any tactics for now.
“You clearly know why. I don’t want us to be forced to make a move.” The woman didn’t favor Battle Gods, just as Battle Gods didn’t favor Demon Kings.
