Chapter 577: Can meet but can't ask for
There weren't many people on the bridge itself, but there were men and women on both sides of the river under the bridge. They were kneeling by the shore and putting lanterns into the river, letting them flow down the current.
Looking down from the bridge, the lanterns were like dots on the water, creating stars inside the river that was just like a bright galaxy.
"Truly beautiful!" Chen Ning supported her chin as she leaned on the bridge, looking down at the river and the lanterns floating in the water.
"Come, let's have a look at what kinds of good things you've won today."
Chu Shao Bai laughed as he placed the brocaded boxes on the ground. He was as excited as a child.
Chen Ning also smiled. She was also feeling a sense of excitement as she prepared to open the prizes.
The two of them opened the boxes one after the other. Other than that precious Profound Cold Iron Stone, the most valuable items were the smooth glass mirror, a few red lacquered pin bracelets, and some daily necessities.
Every time they opened one, Chu Shao Bai would always ask, "Do you like it? Do you want to keep it?"
Chen Ning always shook her head with a smile.
She was not interested in any of these items. As for answering the riddles, it was just for fun and not for winning these prizes.
"Alright, if you don't want it, then I want it."
He placed all the items she didn't want into a single box and held like in his arms like a treasure.
"You have to keep this Profound Cold Iron Stone and this mirror." Chu Shao Bai gave the mirror and Profound Cold Iron Stone to her.
"I want this mirror, but as for that stone, I really don't know what to use it for. It's better to give it to you."
Chen Ning handed the box with the Profound Cold Iron Stone to Chu Shao Bai.
"Do you really not know or are you pretending?" He revealed a surprised look on his face.
"I just know that it was very precious and cost a lot of money, but I really don't know what uses it has." She honestly told him.
In her memory palace, she did not have any memories on this Profound Cold Iron Stone.
"This is an extremely rare iron ore. There is only a small amount of it and it grows in the extremely cold northern lands. In terms of profound iron, the more profound iron, the rarer it is. Look at this stone, it has a faint red light surrounding it, which means that it has a very rich profound iron content. If it can be extracted and a small amount of iron was added during weapon crafting, it will turn into a wonderful weapon. Tell me, is this kind of thing precious or not? This piece is around the size of a fist and by my estimates, it would be enough to make a total of ten world famous swords and sabers. This kind of treasure, do you really not want it? If you really don't want it, then I'll take it."
He deliberately held the box in his arms and revealed a look of not bearing to put it down.
"Alright, I don't want it. You can have it." She revealed a faint smile.
"You're serious?" Chu Shao Bai's eyes began to sparkle.
For those that practiced martial arts, they dreamed of having a weapon that could cut through gold and jade. With this great weapon, it would double the might of their martial arts!
But these opportunities could only be met and not asked for.
Although Chu Shao Bai was a prince and had seen all kinds of treasures of this world, he had never met this kind of legendary weapon before.
He could imagine just how sharp a weapon made from this Profound Cold Iron Stone would be. It would be enough to make all the people in the martial arts world go crazy.
"Of course I'm serious. You have to put it away properly, you can't let anyone steal something this precious. Un, remember to hold it properly when you go to sleep!" Chen Ning smiled as she teased him.
