Chapter 412: Real When Fake

“Then, senior, I’ll take you there now!”The middle-aged female cultivator was extremely excited and subconsciously wanted to lead the way.
However, Chen Chen said indifferently, “Hold on. Although it’s simple, you still have to pay a price.”
“Senior, as long as I have what you want, I won’t refuse.”
The middle-aged female cultivator said directly.
Chen Chen thought for a moment and replied, “How about this, since your Golden Saint sect is famous for refining artifacts, you should have a lot of refining materials, right?”
“Sure! I have some in stock, I’ll go buy some from someone else now…”
After saying that, the middle-aged female cultivator turned around and wanted to leave.
Chen Chen stopped her and said, “Wait until you see that person before going to collect the refining materials. If this person has some special attributes and can deceive the heavenly secrets, then I can’t help him.”
“Thank you for your trust, Senior. Regardless of whether you can see it or not, I will definitely give you all of the refining materials for 100,000 Spirit Stones!”
The middle-aged female cultivator’s face was filled with gratitude, making Chen Chen feel very embarrassed.
In his original worldview, if there was anything in this world that could make a fortune faster than using the system to find heavenly materials and treasures, then it would be robbery.
Now, he had to add another one, and that was cheating!
Of course, strictly speaking, he wasn’t lying. After all, he might really be able to help this middle-aged female cultivator resolve her doubts.
After fifteen minutes, the middle-aged female cultivator brought Chen Chen to another mountain peak. This mountain peak was several times richer in spiritual energy than the previous one. More importantly, the only simple building on this mountain wasn’t covered by any array formation.
In other words, the cultivator living inside lived in a high-temperature environment all year round.
“Living in this environment might make people sick… could it be that the person inside really likes men?”
Chen Chen thought with a wicked interest in his heart.
If the cultivator inside really liked men, what would the middle-aged female cultivator’s reaction be if he told her?
Chen Chen didn’t dare to imagine it, but he was sure that it would be very interesting!
“Uncle-Master Lian, Mo Ying is here to visit!”
The middle-aged female cultivator called out to the small house not far away. Her face was full of anticipation, worry, and a trace of fear.
On the way here, Chen Chen and the middle-aged female cultivator had already told each other their names. They also knew that the cultivator in the small house was called Lian Yang, but they didn’t know that Lian Yang was actually her Uncle-Master.
Uncle-Master… sigh, this seniority is a bit messy.
Ding Ding Ding!
Mo Ying was answered by the sound of a few hammers striking. Although they didn’t say anything, Chen Chen and Mo ying both knew that this “Ding ding ding”meant “I’m very busy, get lost quickly.”.
Thinking of this, Chen Chen looked at Mo Ying sympathetically. This woman really wasn’t having an easy life.
As the saying goes, it’s easier for a woman to woo a man than the other way around.
However, if a man was really not interested in a woman, the distance between them would not be less than thousands of mountains and rivers, just like Lian Yang and Mo Ying at this time.
Sensing Chen Chen’s gaze, Mo Ying’s face turned slightly pale. He gritted his teeth and continued, “Uncle-Master, my disciple is out on business. He came back with a good piece of refining material. I think that if I hand it over to you to refine, you will be able to bring out the most value of this refining material!”
The sounds of forging in the small house came to an abrupt end and the scene quieted down.
Chen Chen’s expression was complicated. How could Mo Mo and Ren Qi bring back any refining material? It was most likely that Mo Ying found it himself.
In his previous life, this woman was just like a dog licking its tail, an abnormally lowly one at that.
After a long time, a rather powerful voice came from the small house.
Mo Ying did not feel happy when she heard this, and her eyes grew dimmer.
He was more attracted to a single piece of refining material than to her. How could she be happy?
Mo Ying forcefully suppressed the bitterness in her heart and forced a smile at Chen Chen. “Senior, follow me.”
After saying that, she led the way. After a moment, the two of them walked into the small house. The layout of the small house was simple and crude, and there was no one inside. The two of them walked all the way until they arrived at the courtyard behind the small house.
This courtyard was not small. In the middle of it was a huge furnace and a forging table. Judging from the material, it was obviously extraordinary. It far surpassed the set of forging tools that Chen Chen had obtained from the golden alien race.
It was very obvious that the refining master from the land of alchemy and the second refiner from the Golden Saint sect were not on the same level.
There was a tall and sturdy middle-aged man seated behind the forging table.
The middle-aged man was dressed in gray, his chest was half exposed, and his beard was messy. He looked a little sloppy.
He was Lian Yang, whom Mo Ying adored to bits.
Lian Yang opened his eyes, and the first thing he saw was the handsome and unrestrained Chen Chen. There was not a hint of surprise in his eyes, and then he looked at Mo Ying.
“Disciple-Niece Mo, the material you gave me last time was not picked up by chance when you went out, but bought from my Junior Brother. Although I gave you Spirit Stones after you gave it to me, you lost 3,000 top-grade Spirit Stones. Why do you have to do this?”
These words exposed Mo Ying’s thoughts. Chen Chen could not help but sweat.
Lian Yang was obviously a straight man. He did not know how to be tactful at all.
Of course, when it came to matters of love, it would be better to be more straightforward about one’s feelings and make it clear if one does not like their admirer. It would be better than keeping someone on the hook, giving them hope, treating them as a backup, and using them as a cash cow.
Mo Ying’s eyes were filled with bitterness when she heard that. She shook her head and didn’t answer. It looked like the two of them had already reached the state where everything was said in silence.
There was no need to speak. They both understood each other’s thoughts.
Chen Chen wasn’t idle at this moment either. He began to question the system.
“System, where is the person Lian Yang admires?”
“There is none.”
The system’s answer was concise and clear. Chen Chen already understood when he heard this answer.
If there was someone he liked but she was no longer within the tracking range, then the system would answer that she was no longer within the tracking range.
Since the system said there was none, it meant that there really wasn’t any.
He didn’t expect that the muscular man in front of him, who looked like he was bursting with testosterone, was actually a person without the ability to love… Of course, he couldn’t rule out the possibility that Lian Yang just hadn’t met someone he liked so far.
“Little friend, why are you looking at me?”
Lian Yang noticed Chen Chen’s gaze and asked with a smile. His expression was actually much more amiable than Mo Ying’s.
It was obvious that this person wasn’t a cold person. His coldness was only directed at Mo Ying.
“It’s nothing. I just feel that Fellow Daoist is extraordinary.”
Chen Chen replied calmly.
When he heard the way Fellow Daoist addressed him, a trace of surprise appeared in Lian Yang’s eyes. Mo Ying hurriedly explained, “Uncle-Master, this senior is an otherworldly expert. His current appearance is actually fake. His true age is much older than us!”
“Senior…” Lian Yang frowned. With his divine sense, which was at the peak of the Spirit Severing realm, he scanned Chen Chen’s body again and again. However, he did not see any clues and could not help but feel apprehensive.
Just this transformation technique alone was enough to tell that this young man in front of him wasn’t simple.
“You and I can call each other fellow Daoists.”
Chen Chen smiled gently.
“Fellow Daoist, I was presumptuous just now. However, this transformation technique of yours… is really impossible to see through!”
“Hehe, it’s just a small trick.”
Chen Chen smiled mysteriously. Even an immortal wouldn’t be able to see through his true appearance, let alone a cultivator who was at the peak of the Spirit Severing stage.
“Disciple-Niece Mo, why did you bring this Fellow Daoist here?” Lian Yang looked at Mo Ying.
Perhaps it was because she had told Chen Chen about her worries, but Mo Ying felt relieved. After hearing Lian Yang’s question, she suddenly became excited.
“Uncle-Master, you know what I’m thinking. Can you tell me who this person you’re talking about belongs to? So that I can completely give up!”
After saying this, Mo Ying’s eyes turned slightly red, and his emotions were on the verge of exploding.
