Walking on the busy street, Chen Chen held a small bottle of Heavenly Spirit Bell Stalagmite in his hand.
His master once told him that it was not good to raise his status of cultivation too quickly as his body would not be able to adapt to the sudden increase in power. Soon, he would be too powerful to go about his daily life.
Hence, he hadn’t used many heavenly treasures to assist his cultivation.
Chen Chen shook his head and gulped down the bottle of Heavenly Spirit Bell Stalagmite in one go as he walked along the street.
Powerful ethereality instantly engulfed his body, and his status of cultivation increased at a speed visible to the naked eye.
Before he could walk far, his status of cultivation level had already soared from the middle stage of foundation building to the late stage of foundation building.
Of course, he wasn’t afraid of Qi Bufan. With his strength, he could deal with Qi Bufan who was at the peak of foundation building, even though he was only at the middle stage.
He was afraid of the person whom he had to face after dealing with Qi Bufan.
After casually throwing away an empty vial, Chen Chen sped up.
The cold breeze blew over.
Chen Chen’s heart was as cold as ice, and his killing intent was unstoppable.
As for the bet of 10,000 Spirit Stones, he had already put the thought in the back of his mind.
‘Am I supposed to exchange Zhang Ji’s bloodstained betting ticket for Spirit Stones?’
He was not that hard-up for Spirit Stones.
In the Floral Moon House.
In the night, the lights shined brightly, covering the endless stream of guests.
Gu Qingcheng looked at the distinguished guests who were dressed fancily, secretly rejoicing.
She had made the right bet!
She had invited Qi Bufan to stay at the Floral Moon House, making a great deal of money in the process!
Qi Bufan had defeated Lin Jin during the day, making him so famous that he had risen to second place in the elites’ ranking. At this point, he was enjoying a lot of attention.
The new king who was ranked first was staying in the palace. Hence, he couldn’t go out often.
Because of this, in a certain sense, Qi Bufan was the strongest among the successors who could live outside!
Yet, a person like him was staying in the Floral Moon House. It was a great honor for Gu Qingcheng.
They had not only defeated the rivals of the industry, but also restaurants and inns like the Purple Qi Pavilion.
It was foreseeable that the Floral Moon House would be raised another notch if the Luoyou Clan were to successfully advance to becoming one of the 36 clans in the future.
However, as she thought about it, she felt that the anger she had suffered throughout the past few days was worth it.
To be frank, Qi Bufan was gentlemanly and decent-looking on the surface, however, he was maniacal and arrogant deep down. He respected no one and was hard to get along with.
If he was not a top successor, she would have told him to get lost.
Just as she continued thinking in her head, a familiar figure appeared in sight.
“What is he doing here in the Floral Moon House?”
Gu Qingcheng was puzzled. The person who had just stepped into the Floral Moon House was none other than Chen Chen.
Seeing Chen Chen, Gu Qingcheng grew a complicated expression. She had seen his business management skills previously and for some reason, she felt different about him.
It was the empathy that a hero would feel when looking at another hero.
Unfortunately, it was impossible for Chen Chen, the successor of the Tianyun Clan, to concentrate on running a brothel.
Thinking of this, she shook her head and walked towards the figure with a signature gentle smile on her face.
“Successor of the Tianyun Clan, what brings you here to the Floral Moon House? This time, I’ve already learned my lesson. If you want to stay for free, I won’t allow it.”
Staring at Gu Qingcheng without much of an expression, Chen Chen asked calmly, “I’m here to look for Qi Bufan. Where is Qi Bufan?”
Hearing Chen Chen’s words, Gu Qingcheng subconsciously looked towards the top of the building. Turning her head, she happened to notice a bloodstain on Chen Chen’s chest from the corner of her eye.
Seeing the bloodstain, Gu Qingcheng immediately became alert. The smile on her face disappeared and she asked, “Successor, what are you looking for Qi Bufan for?”
Chen Chen repeated coldly, “To settle scores.”
He then ignored Gu Qingcheng as he began making his way directly towards the top of the building.
“Ah! Successor, wait a minute, Qi Bufan is now celebrating on the highest floor with two successors by his side. Can’t you wait until tomorrow to settle scores with him? I can’t afford to have any trouble here in the Floral Moon House…”
In her mind, Gu Qingcheng subconsciously wanted to block Chen Chen away from entering. However, when she was about to approach, an amazing aura was suddenly emitted from his body.
She instantly sensed terrifying dragon’s might mixed with terrifying killing intent!
Once the pressure was emitted, Gu Qingcheng froze in place as she did not dare to move.
The guests around Chen Chen stiffened as they felt this aura, immediately turning around to leave. Soon, the guests of the Floral Moon House began to leave, one by one.
“Don’t worry, I will compensate you accordingly when the time comes.”
After he spoke, Chen Chen began making his way up the stairs while Gu Qingcheng stared at him, her eyes filled with confusion.
‘The successor of the Tianyun Clan seems different today. He’s no longer the young gentleman who’s always grinning. Today, he’s cold, indifferent, aloof, and condescending.’
Watching Chen Chen gradually approaching the top of the building, she dared not stop him. In fact, she didn’t even dare to make a single sound.
The feud between immortals was not like the competition between brothels. It was not something she could easily interfere with.
Chen Chen arrived at the top floor.
There were noises coming from the private room, among which was Qi Bufan’s voice.
That voice was all he needed to hear.
Without hesitation, Chen Chen pushed open the door of the private room.
Suddenly, the noises in the private room came to an abrupt stop, as several girls looked towards Chen Chen who had suddenly appeared.
“Chen Chen, what are you doing here? Are you here to admit your mistake to me?”
When Qi Bufan saw Chen Chen, a hint of surprise flashed in his eyes.
Next to him, there were two other successors who were both at the peak of foundation building, and who ranked sixth and ninth respectively among the elites. They had already turned beet red from drinking.
“Hah, Senior Brother Qi, I think he has come here to discuss the bets. He bet 10,000 Spirit Stones that he will win. If he wins, he will get 150,000 Spirit Stones…” said one of the successors whose smoky eyes were filled with derision.
Another successor followed and chimed in.
“Not bad, if Senior Brother Qi is willing to admit defeat tomorrow, he will make a lot of money!”
Hearing these words, Qi Bufan suddenly realized something.
It was what Chen Chen had planned all along when he decided to bet 10,000 Spirit Stones on his own victory.
‘Hah, if that’s not it, what is he here at the Floral Moon House for?’
With that thought in mind, he said indifferently with his eyes full of contempt, “I can admit defeat but I want 130,000 of the 150,000 Spirit Stones that you get tomorrow. Also, you have to kowtow to me thrice now for offending me…”
Before he could finish, he was interrupted by Chen Chen.
“Who hurt my underling?”
His words were cold, forcing the three successors to immediately sober up. The pupils of one of the successors constricted a little as his peak Foundation Establishment aura began to emanate from his body.
“It was me, so what? Are you still thinking of taking revenge for a loser…”
At this point, the successor abruptly fell silent as Chen Chen had already appeared in front of him abruptly like a ghost, forcibly breaking through the protective aura around his body and pinching his neck with one hand.
Chen Chen said softly, “What else can I do? I can only take your life.”
The ethereality in his hand suddenly exploded and the bright light instantly illuminated the entire private room.
With a muffled rumbling of thunder, the successor who was in the top ten of the elites’ ranking, was blown into ashes. He even created a hole that had a radius of several meters in the wall behind the explosion!
Upon sight of this scene, the girls in the private room screamed and left!
There were seven floors throughout the entire Floral Moon House and the sounds of yelling and shrieks of horror immediately filled the air amidst the chaos!
