Chapter 219 – Gang Warfare
From the kitchen area, a dozen plus kitchen workers suddenly rushed out.
Some were holding spatulas, some with spoons, and some were holding kitchen knives that glimmered a cold light.
The head chef then shouted: "Who the f*ck dares to eat without paying at the Hibiscus Restaurant?! This daddy is gonna hack him to death!"
In just several seconds…
Luo Tian and Tang Tang were surrounded.
Tang Tang started smiling!
Not only was she smiling because she was happy, she was smiling because this was a lot of fun to her!
Luo Tian glared at her and said: "Do you have any money on you?"
Tang Tang waved her hand and said: "This Miss never brings money with her. Three hundred something silver taels isn't a small number so if you can't take that out, these guys will not let you off."
She was taking pleasure in other's misery!
She was still smiling like flowers were blooming at this time.
If there weren't so many people present, Luo Tian would've already slapped her little butt and shouted: "Little girl, keep smiling for this daddy to see!"
Luo Tian continued searching through his belongings and smiled embarrassingly: "Boss, do you accept demon cores?"
Luo Tian was actually very rich.
He was so rich that not many in the Heavenly Sword City could exceed his wealth.
What he had were demon cores. A single attributed demon core had a value of a million gold.
Luo Tian had several spatial plaques filled with demon cores. One could say he was close to a billionaire.
But there's one important point…
Demon cores weren't a currency and cannot be used to purchase goods, unless the other person was willing.
After saying that…
Luo Tian pulled out a wind attributed demon core and placed it on the table. "Boss, this demon core will be used to pay for our meal and you don't need to give me any change."
Even if the boss wanted to give Luo Tian change, most likely he wouldn't be capable of doing that!
This entire restaurant was not worth a single attributed demon core!
Once the demon core appeared, it was shining with a bright crystal light. There would occasionally be traces of a breeze swirling around it. Tang Tang's eyes showed shock as she suddenly said: "It's really a wind attributed demon core! Are you crazy?! This meal was only a few hundred silvers while your demon core is at least a million gold!"
The boss with a large belly came forward. He originally was startled by it as well and his expression was not much different to Tang Tang's, but his expression turned cold as he harrumphed: "You two don't need to keep acting. You think this daddy is easy to cheat because I haven't gone to school before? If it really is a wind attributed demon core, would you even dare to take out here? Why don't you take a look around and see where you're at?"
This was the area of Heavenly Sword City that was the most messy and chaotic.
Many different forces of power resided here.
Many types of crimes happened here and it wasn't a place where people can expose their wealth. Once exposed, it would definitely be stolen or robbed by those forces. That's why the restaurant's boss didn't believe Luo Tian one bit.
How could a person that can't even take out money for a meal have a demon core? And it was even an attributed demon core!
Add on Tang Tang's exaggerated expression, the boss of the restaurant was pretty confident the demon core was a fake. Thinking up to this point, he became even angrier as he shouted: "People come! Beat him until all the food he has eaten comes back out! Not a single scrap of food can be missing! Your damn granny; you dare to eat without paying in this daddy's restaurant?! This daddy will let you eat your fill!"
As his voice faded…
Luo Tian's brows scrunched up since he didn't want to blow this situation out of proportion.
If this mess gets out of hand, it's possible he would be recognized by others. And since the whole country was searching for him, being recognized would cause him some major headache.
Luo Tian's eyes turned grim as he grabbed onto Tang Tang's soft jaded hands. He then shouted: "Level 2 Berserk!"
"Level 3 – Thousand Phantoms!"
His powers sank down and his figure shot out like an arrow. In less than half a second, only a trail of a thousand phantom images of Luo Tian was left behind. His speed was so fast that it was just a blur for onlookers and no one had time to react.
In an instant…
Luo Tian pulling Tang Tang along had travelled over several hundred meters and had disappeared into the night.
The waiter finally managed to react and rushed onto the street. He looked left and right but had no idea which direction Luo Tian had run off to.
"Kid, don't let me see you again or else this daddy will break your third leg."
Several workers came out and cursed Luo Tian before unhappily heading back inside the restaurant.
Around this moment…
A middle-aged man came down the second floor of the restaurant in an irritable manner. "What's going on? Why is it so noisy?"
The large bellied shopkeeper ran forth and smiled respectfully: "Big boss, someone ate without paying. We've already beaten him running for his life."
The middle-aged man responded casually but when he was just about to walk back up to the second floor, something drew his attention from the corner of his eyes. When he looked over, his figure suddenly disappeared before reappearing at the table filled with empty plates.
The middle-aged man's eyes tightened while he grabbed the demon core from the table. After sensing it for a bit, his expression turned to shock as he said: "A wind attributed demon core… a wind attributed demon core! Hahaha… it's actually a wind attributed demon core!"
The shopkeeper became dumbfounded.
The other kitchen workers became dumbfounded as well.
The big boss cannot be wrong, so the demon core was truly a wind attributed demon core!
The moment he made a move, a country bumpkin pulled out a wind attributed demon core?
Everyone felt their minds in chaos.
The middle-aged man stored the wind attributed demon core and said happily: "It looks like the Gale Palms I cultivate will make a breakthrough soon, hahaha! Fu San, you did well; you guys all did a good job. I will give you guys a generous reward for your efforts, hahaha…"
Switching over to Luo Tian's side…
He managed to run past several streets on a single breath while pulling Tang Tang along.
Luo Tian finally stopped in an inconspicuous corner.
Tang Tang's face was red and she was gasping for air while saying: "Haaa~, haaa~, haaa~, so, so, so much fun! That was too exhilarating! I didn't imagine that we successfully ate without paying! Hee hee…"
She was extremely happy.
She had never experienced this type of excitement before.
Luo Tian then glared at her and said: "What eating without paying? This daddy gave them money! Does this daddy look like someone that doesn't have any money?!"
Tang Tang's expression became stunned. She then stared at Luo Tian and asked in a serious manner: "You didn't take the wind attributed demon core with you?"
"You, you, you damn prodigal squanderer! A single wind attributed demon core could by their entire restaurant! You actually left it behind?! You're driving me nuts!" Tang Tang said with an angry pout.
Luo Tian didn't look at her and said with disdain: "This daddy has nothing but attributed demon cores, so there's no need for you to concern yourself with my actions."
Tang Tang was so mad that she couldn't even speak anymore.
Around this time…
At the end of the street under a dim street light were two groups of people killing each other.
The scene of them killing each other was similar to the movie Young and Dangerous that Luo Tian had watched in his previous life, except the scene here was even crazier. They were fighting from the ground to the air, and then from the air back to the ground. Each of them were fighting viciously like it was either your die or I die.
A gang warfare!
Tang Tang was instantly attracted to it and said excitedly: "Go, go, go! Let's get closer to watch! There's gang warfare going on everyday in the northern city and I have never seen it before. Today, this Miss must go watch it and enjoy herself!"
Luo Tian's brows scrunched up as his palm slapped onto Tang Tang's little butt. He then shouted: "Enjoy your sister! Hurry up and run! If you don't run now, they'll be killing their way over here soon!"
Luo Tian grabbed Tang Tang and started running like crazy again.
While running away, Luo Tian became even more worried for Feng Lei. He then said internally: "Fatty, I hope you're doing well."
Luo Tian then disappeared into the night.
Just a short distance away from Luo Tian, Feng Lei suddenly sneezed. The tang blade in his hand chopped down and smashed a person tumbling away. He then muttered: "Who is thinking of me? Could it be boss?"
"Fellow brothers, kill for me! Kill every one of these Poison Dragon Gang mongrels!
