Chapter 517 - A Thousand Spots
The woman with the Di-ranked Martial Spirit turned around and glared at Longhu. Her attractive face was slightly reddened because of her anger, while her figure pulsated along with her breathing.
The geniuses in the area were taken by surprise, before they turned around and gazed at Longhu with gloating looks.
It went without saying that they all knew this woman was a disciple recruited by the Black Tortoise Platoon.
Longhu chuckled under the crowd’s gaze, “Lady, it’s normal for us men to be attracted by something glamorous. Your attractive look has caught my attention, how could you blame me for looking at you? It’s your fault for being too pretty…”
The crowd was left in awe. Such a shameless guy.
The woman was not an expert in playing with words. She felt furious yet embarrassed after hearing the words, but since she was now at the Leisure Inn, she was not allowed to use any violence.
“Alright, that’s enough.” Qin Nan stepped forward and tapped on Longhu’s shoulder, before he brought his fists together toward the woman, “I apologize for my friend’s misbehavior. Please forgive him.”
“Humph!” The woman glanced at Qin Nan and harrumphed before turning her body around.
“Mm? Why are you here, Qin——” Longhu became joyful after seeing Qin Nan, but was given a glare when he almost called out his name. He instantly collected his thoughts and let out an awkward chuckle, “Why haven’t you been captured yet?”
Despite the fact that Qin Nan had stirred a great chaos in the entire Eastern Continent, it was a surprise to Longhu that Qin Nan was able to appear in the Second City in one piece.
Qin Nan rolled his eyes and transmitted his voice to Longhu, “What are you doing here in the Second City?”
Longhu wore a prideful look as he spoke, “A few days ago, a guy from the Black Tortoise Platoon stumbled into me and begged me to join their platoon. Since the guy was pretty old, and he looked quite pitiful too, I ended up accepting the offer…”
“Black Tortoise Platoon?”
Qin Nan was startled.
“What do you think? Are you proud of me?” Longhu asked in a proud tone.
Qin Nan nodded his head while wearing a relieved look.
Just as he had expected, his companions could easily earn their spots here in the upper district.
However, at that instant, Xiao Qi’s voice could be heard coming from the second floor of the inn, “Geniuses of the three platoons, please proceed to the second floor. I’ve got some great wines here to share with you all.”
Upon hearing this, the woman who was arguing with Longhu, Shi Kai, and two other young men rose from their seats and proceeded to the second floor under the admiring gaze of the crowd, as if they had long expected this.
“Come, let’s go too. I still need their help to get me a badge in order to enter White Tiger City.”
Longhu patted Qin Nan’s back as if he were an elder brother looking after a younger brother.
“A badge to enter White Tiger City?”
Qin Nan was startled.
Longhu replied, “Only a thousand people are allowed to enter the city each day. Each spot costs five thousand Primary Stones. If you’re planning on entering the city, even if you’re the disciple of the three platoons, you still need to get yourself a spot. Hehe, how unnecessary for a small city like this…”
It was as of the White Tiger City was not worth mentioning at all in Longhu’s eyes.
Qin Nan nodded his head and followed Longhu to the second floor.
However, while making their way to the stairs, a servant intercepted them and spoke in a calm tone, “I’m sorry, you’re not one of the three platoons. You can’t enter the second floor…”
Before the servant could finish, Longhu pointed his finger at the servant’s nose and burst out scolding, “Are you blind? Can’t you see that he’s my brother? Are you saying that I’m not allowed to bring him up?”
The servant wore a troubled expression.
At that instant, Xiao Qi’s voice appeared from the second floor, “Let them pass.”
“Humph, learn how to behave properly like your master.”
Longhu harrumphed and said. He had just stumbled into Qin Nan and was trying to show off right before him, but immediately after they had been intercepted by the servant, thus causing him to feel embarrassed.
Qin Nan followed Longhu onto the second floor.
The second floor was split from the first floor by a formation. There was a fake mountain at the center, surrounded by a clear flowing river. He could also see some women playing guqins close to the river, resulting in a pleasant melody.
Towards the back was a huge jade table, where the mysterious Xiao Qi was sitting with a gentle smile on his face.
Longhu walked toward the table and sat down in a reckless manner, which caused the chair to let out a squeak, causing the others to frown.
The woman even wore an annoyed look.
“Tsk tsk, only the people of the three platoons are allowed to enter the second floor. What are you doing here?” Shi Kai could not help but blurt out after seeing Qin Nan.
The others were aware of Qin Nan’s presence too. To them, a mere Martial Ancestor Realm cultivator was not worthy of their attention.
“Oh? So my brother needs to report to you before entering the place?” Longhu raised his eyebrows and snapped coldly, “If you’re not happy, I’m more than willing to duel you!”
“Idiot!” The woman said with an icy tone.
“Don’t be so eager to start a fight now.” Shi Kai immediately replied, “However, since everyone else here was recruited by the Black Tortoise Platoon, Mr. Xiao Qi must have something important to discuss with us too. How is it acceptable for your brother to tag along?”
Although this Shi Kai was behaving disdainfully, he was smart when playing with words too.
The other geniuses nodded their heads.
“Is that so?”
Green veins popped out on Longhu’s forehead as he unleashed his aura while preparing himself for the fight.
At that instant, Xiao Qi waved his hand and spoke, “It’s fine. Stop arguing. Let’s focus on the main issue.”
Since the owner of the place had spoken, Shi Kai did not speak any further. Longhu also withdrew his aura while glaring at him.
“I believe that everyone here is aware that only a thousand people are allowed to enter White Tiger City each day.” Xiao Qi said smilingly, “Since you’re all the geniuses of the Black Tortoise Platoon, you will be entering White Tiger City soon to register yourselves. I do happen to have a few spots available for you all, but you’ll need to do me a favor once you have officially joined the Black Tortoise Platoon, and I hope that everyone here will be willing to lend me a hand.”
Qin Nan immediately came to a realization after hearing this.
This Xiao Qi was planning to offer the geniuses the spots which would allow them to enter White Tiger City. In return, they would owe him a favor.
“I’ll try my best to help if it’s within my capabilities.” One of the geniuses said while bringing his fists together.
“I don’t mind.” The woman calmly said.
Shi Kai and the rest nodded their heads in agreement.
“You have my thanks.” The smile on Xiao Qi’s face grew thicker, “In order to celebrate your bright futures in advance, I’ll let you all have a taste of the fine wines of our Leisure Inn.”
The geniuses acknowledged consecutively.
Qin Nan hesitated for a moment before bringing his fists together, “Is it possible for Mr. Xiao Qi to give me a badge too?”
The entire place fell dead silent after the words were spoken.
