When Landlord Zuo had finished all of this, he said with a light-hearted tone: "Clean it up, let that guy wait for me in the guest room."
It was apparent to see that in this River Gate State City, although Landlord Zuo was not the most strongest, he was a tyrannical figure.
After waiting for a while in the living room, Qin Wushuang already knew that this Landlord Zuo was not a virtuous figure when he did not appear in a timely manner. Landlord Zuo was playing tricks on him for not showing himself.
Of course, Qin Wushuang was not in a hurry. Those Dark Meteor Metal Irons and Green Jade Essence of the highest quality were only baits he had used to lure Landlord Zuo. These were to make Landlord Zuo taste some benefits.
As long as the big fish, Landlord Zuo, swallowed the bait, he would spit those goods back out along with interest.
After another hour had passed, that Landlord Zuo entered the room with his subordinate in an unhurried manner.
Although Landlord Zuo did not possess great strength and was only at the Transformation Void Martial Stage, two elite warriors of the Profound Void Martial Stage flanked his sides.
These two elite warriors of the Profound Void Martial Stage were the two leaders of the Silver Hawk Guards.
There were a few people that had the ability to threaten Landlord Zuo in the River Gate State City. However, because of the relationship between Landlord Zuo and Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect, plus with him excelling at maximizing this relationship, those people of the stronger households needed to follow Landlord Zuo's decision before their actions.
Landlord Zuo sized this guest up and asked lightly as his eyes narrowed into a line: "Friend, excuse my bad eyes, where do you do business?"
Since Qin Wushuang had dared to come here, he already derived many countless possibilities that had included the questions, the actions, and the procedures Landlord Zuo might ask.
Hearing the question from Landlord Zuo, of course he was not surprised.
"In the River Gate State City, who doesn't know that name of yours, Landlord Zuo? I have travelled from distant lands and only wanted to do business with you."
Landlord Zuo pulled a long face and only revealed a cold sneer: "To do business?"
Landlord Zuo spread his hands and said with a somewhat arrogant tone: "In the River Gate State City, those who know my name should know about my personality. I am not afraid of too great or too heavy the business. Of course, I welcome all business. However, there is one type of business that I would not do."
"Oh? I'd like to hear the details." Qin Wushuang spoke with a humble tone.
"I do not do business of dubious nature." Landlord Zuo did not try to hide. When talking business, he did reveal the essence of a businessman.
"This is easy, you just want a reliable identity, right Landlord Zuo?" Qin Wushuang was calm and collected, "To you, identity is of great importance."
Landlord Zuo waved his palm-leaf fan like palm: "Of course, I was able to gain my current status due to such caution. Some business appeared to be strongly attractive, yet it could be a business that would drag my entire family into the deep muddy pool. Of course, it's wise to not touch it."
As Landlord Zuo spoke up to this point, he also laughed and said with a rather sincere tone: "Friend, when I say it this way, is it not hypocritical?"
This person had clearly revealed a kind of cunning and astuteness of a businessman. However, he had spoken of a matter with a rather pretentious honest and sincere tone that would not make one to feel distastefulness.
Qin Wushuang laughed and did not keep speaking. He gave a long sigh and seemed to whisper to himself: "This way, it seems Landlord Zuo is not the person I am looking for to conduct business with."
Landlord Zuo could hold his stance. Although the business seemed big from Qin Wushuang's implications, Landlord Zuo knew better than anyone that free meat pies falling from the sky were not easy to get in touch with. He must be extremely cautious of such business that came to his door. It may be a scam. Additionally, the other party had sent him valuable gifts and made Landlord Zuo feel that he was undoubtedly hiding evil and greedy intentions.
"May I ask your surname, friend?" Landlord Zuo asked out of the blue.
"My last name is He." Qin Wushuang was answering with pre-planned lines.
Before Landlord Zuo could continue, Qin Wushuang laughed: "Landlord Zuo's son has already become a core disciple of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect. Since you also have a great foundation in the River Gate State City, it's reasonable for you to be cautious. Ha ha, this way, I shall not disturb you."
After he had finished, Qin Wushuang pretended to stand up and make his departure.
Remaining calm and collected, Landlord Zuo only stood up after he saw Qin Wushuang stand up. He laughed: "Then I will send you off."
This time, Qin Wushuang had only come with Bao Bao. Lone had remained at the inn and those sealed spiritual beasts were also in their sealed scrolls.
Qin Wushuang secretly swore at Landlord Zuo for being an wily old fox. However, he did not expect him to swallow the bait from the start as he cupped his hands in a salute: "Landlord Zuo, no need to see me out."
Landlord Zuo laughed: "A missed business need not be the cause of a missed relationship. With VIP guests visiting, it's reasonable to send you away. Please!"
During his remark, they had already reached the exterior hallway outside the living room. Qin Wushuang made his way in an unhurried manner. After taking a few steps, suddenly, he asked thoughtfully: "Landlord Zuo, among the core disciple of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect, most of them are disciples of the Luo descendants. A portion of them are disciples of the Tian family. The Zuo family should only be the third major clan, right?"
Landlord Zuo laughed: "You are rather familiar with our Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect."
"The Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect is famous, it's hard for me not to know about it." Qin Wushuang said, "At the common border of the River Gate State, there is a Goose Lake State, it should be where the population of the Tian Clan resides, right? I remember that many core disciples of the Tian Clan have come from the Goose Lake State?"
"Yes, indeed, you are quite knowledgeable." Inwardly, Landlord Zuo was feeling suspicious. This guy with the surname He was not giving details, what tricks was he trying to pull?
"Ok, please stop here." When they were almost at the door, Qin Wushuang turned around with a smile.
"Where are you staying, He?" Landlord Zuo pretentiously asked with care.
Qin Wushuang frowned slightly: "I planned to stay at a random inn, but I must head to the Goose Lake State urgently."
When he said this, it was unknown whether Qin Wushuang was being deliberate or not as he said to Landlord Zuo: "Landlord Zuo, today I had come without giving you prior notice, as you said, a missed business need not lead to a missed relationship. For today's matter, please forget about it, and I will be extremely grateful."
Seeing Qin Wushuang mumbling, Landlord Zuo could not but feel his heart being scratched. He did not know that Qin Wushuang had deliberately dropped a hook to scratch him. Only when scratched him to distress, the matter might turn around.
As he watched the other party of two exit the door of the mansion and almost turning around the street corner, Landlord Zuo instructed: "Number one, follow them and see where they are staying."
After Qin Wushuang and Bao Bao had left, inwardly, Bao Bao was not feeling confident as he sent through his spiritual sense: "Boss, we are leaving like this?"
"Don't be hasty, Bao Bao, if Landlord Zuo does not take the bait, we will make other plans. If he's tempted, he will swallow the bait! Sooner or later, he will come."
Before they had walked back to the inn, Qin Wushuang and Bao Bao sensed that someone was following them from behind. Although Silver Hawk Guard Number One was the leader and an elite warrior of the Profound Void Martial Stage, his spiritual perception stage would not have been as strong as Qin Wushuang and Bao Bao, who possessed the Divine Dao bloodline. Therefore, despite for having good tracking skills, he could not ensure that not one drop of his presence leaked out.
"He's here." After an exchange through their spiritual perception, both Qin Wushuang and Bao Bao had understood as they began to execute the initial plan designed by Qin Wushuang.
They told Lone through the communication jade that they were to go out of the city. Lone would stay and bide his time. Indeed, Qin Wushuang and his friends lingered for a moment at the inn and pretended to be in a haste to rush towards outside the River Gate City.
Silver Guard Number One delivered all he had seen and heard to Landlord Zuo. Landlord Zuo kept tapping his finger on the table as he mumbled: "These two guys are truly going to the Goose Lake Town? What kind of business are they intending to conduct? With such generous gifts, if there is truly a business opportunity, it should be a big one. From that guy's tone, it seemS that this business could only be done with the family of a core disciples in the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect. Could it be that this guy wants to use the sect to do some shady business?"
Naturally, Landlord Zuo would not dare to act on behalf of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect. Yet, regarding using the power and prestige of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect to intimidate people, it was still doable.
In fact, Landlord Zuo had always acted this way. Those two guys had came to find him, then headed to the Goose Lake Town. This way, it appears that Landlord Zuo were their first choice.
Those families of the Tian Clan of the Goose Lake State should only be their second choice. Feeling his heart itching, Landlord Zuo immediately instructed: "Number One, go stop those two guys, tell them I will see them again."
"Do I ask them to come back to the mansion?"
"No need, it's the same whether we meet them outside. Although those two guys have a mysterious background, their strength should not have reached an extent as to threaten us."
Landlord Zuo appeared to be full of confidence.
Qin Wushuang and Bao Bao left the city and rushed towards the direction of the Goose Lake City. Despite appearing in a haste, they had suppressed their speed and reduced it to the speed of ordinary martial artists at the Transformation Void Martial Stage.
After about a thousand miles, Silver Hawk Guard Number One acted on the order and caught up: "Friend He, please hold on."
Qin Wushuang pretended to put on a face full of caution and pulled out the Violet Sun Sword as he stared behind him. Silver Hawk Guard Number One emerged from their rear.
"My Landlord asks you guys to stop, he still wants to talk with you two."
Qin Wushuang said in a low voice: "What else is there to talk about?"
Silver Hawk Guard Number said with an indifferent smile: "I don't know the exact details, I am only acting according to orders."
Qin Wushuang and Bao Bao exchanged a glance as they tried to suppress their joy with effort.
Bao Bao said angrily: "Your Landlord is being overly cautious, we do not have time to waste. Excuse us, we will go now!"
After they had finished, they did not bother with Silver Hawk Guard Number One's surprised look as they flew forward.
Silver Hawk Guard thought these two would wait for a moment and would stop. Unexpectedly, these two had left without delay. Instantly, he sent his spiritual perception to Landlord Zuo: "These two are not willing to wait, and have left!"
"Catch them!" Inwardly, Landlord Zuo became rather anxious. The more abnormal the other party's actions were, the more he felt something fishy was happening.
