Hurricane City – Chapter 38 (Love Rival?)
A message came in, I opened it and it turned out to be Murong Shan Shan, “Lin Fan, are you the one selling the Spirit Dagger?”
“Yes, what about it? It’s not that you’re going to need it, besides, you have problems with your living expenses!”
Murong Shan Shan opened a voice communication, with a grin, she said, “Well, one of my friend wants to buy your dagger. I was hoping that you can sell directly to him. With a bidding war like this, he’s worried that he won’t get it.”
The auction house was nearby, so I walked over right away to check it out and found out that in this four hours, the price had skyrocketed to more than 8700 RMB. And looking at the momentum, in another two hours, the price would not be less than 10,000 Yuan.
“So, Shan Shan, you want me to take the dagger off the list right now and just sell it to your friend?”
Murong Shan Shan laughed, “Yeah, he almost reach Level 16 and really wants that Attack 21-36 high-grade dagger. He is just a student, doesn’t have that much money. Considering your relationship with me, just sell the dagger directly to him, will you?”
I smiled faintly, “Sure it’s not a problem, but it still depends on how much he can offer.”
“Ten thousand. It’s considered high. So, will you?” Murong Shan Shan voice sounded lack of confidence, worrying I would ask for more.
I kept silent and Murong Shan Shan hurriedly added, “He really only have that much, please be flexible this once!”
“Well, can’t you add it up a bit more?”
Murong Shan Shan gritted her teeth, “Okay, plus a meal, please? Don’t be so stingy.”
It seemed she indeed could not spend any more money, and the price would not go up too much anymore anyway, so I might as do a favor for this beauty.
“Shan Shan, I’ll get it off the list immediately and wait here. We’ll just use the banking direct transfer option for the payment.”
“Thank you!” Murong Shan Shan let out a happy shout, then said, “We’ll be right over!”
‘We’ll be right over?’
I shook my head, secretly thinking what kind of relationship did Murong Shan Shan and this ‘he’ had.
I sent out a message to tell Xu Lin and Lu Xue Han that got equipment for them and asked them to come right away.
Shortly, Murong Shan Shan and her friend had also arrived. He was a handsome-looking Thief covered with white equipment and looked pretty much bleak.
Murong Shan Shan introduced him right away, “This is my classmate, hehe, he is called ‘Tou Tian Zhe’. He’s the one buying your item!” (TL Note: Tou Tian Zhe = To steal the day/heaven)
I nodded. After paying two gold coins as the penalty of taking the dagger off the list, I immediately finished the transaction with this little thief. An additional 10,000 was printed on my online balance. Hey, a direct transaction was not bad either, even the 2% fee was not charged.
After the transaction was done, this Thief, Tou Tian Zhe immediately equipped the dagger which flashed a sharp coldness. He looked much more spirited.
“Thank you!” Tou Tian Zhe smiled and thanked me.
I waved my hand, “Don’t mention it. You paid me!”
Murong Shan Shan grinned, “How about we have a big lunch at the restaurant next to KFC? Lin Fan, I won’t hear a No from you!”
I nodded, “Of course, no problem with that. But only a meal, I don’t drink alcohol. Still need to level up in the afternoon.”
The Thief laughed, “Alright, it’s almost 11 now. We should head there now, otherwise there won’t be any empty tables at the restaurant.”
Murong Shan Shan also nodded. I looked at the time and indeed it was almost time, so I nodded and said, “Okay, I’ll also go there right away. Shan Shan already knows me, so we don’t have to worry that we wouldn’t meet.”
Murong Shan Shan and Tou Tian Zhe both logged out.
Soon after, Xu Lin and Lu Xue Han had come. I gave them the [Withches Hat] and [Divine Protection] skill book and told them I would go out for lunch. So, after getting Xu Lin’s permission, I logged off.
I put on my jacket, took my sneakers from under the bed and brushed it a bit, then went off.
Along the way, I wondered what relationship did that Tou Tian Zhe Thief with Murong Shan Shan had? Could it be that he was her boyfriend?
The more I thought about it, the more upset I was. I felt like something had been stolen. But, I only met Murong Shan Shan once. I could not explain this kind of sentiment.
The restaurant was not too far from my place. It took less than 10 minutes for me to walk there. Murong Shan Shan should be a student of the XX University which was next to the restaurant, so she should arrive there before me.
As I expected, from afar I could already see Murong Shan Shan with a casual blue outfit standing in front of the restaurant, and beside her stood a student with glasses who looked like a nerd.
Murong Shan Shan already saw me too and trotted over to me. Out of breath, she said with her flushing face, “Lin Fan, today my friend is treating us. Remember to order more food. I haven’t eaten well for a few days!”
I lowered my voice, “Shan Shan, that guy, what’s his relationship with you?”
“Boyfriend…” Murong Shan Shan said with a mischievous smile.
Although I tried really hard to control my expression, but I still showed a hint of disappointment.
Murong Shan Shan gave out an even sweeter smile, and quickly slipped an envelope into my pocket. She cryptically said, “Do me a favor, just play with!”
I was at a loss for a moment, still confused, I said, “What is it? Shan Shan, don’t pull me, I can walk by myself!”
“Xu Xing, shall we go in?”
Ah, his name was Xu Xing.
A rival! A very formidable rival!
We sat down at a table for four. Xu Xing and I both sat on the opposite side, then we both eagerly waited to see with whom would Murong Shan Shan sit next to.
The result was unexpected. Murong Shan Shan signaled me to move to Xu Xing’s side and then adjusted her clothes to sit on the other side by herself.
“Sir, Miss, can I help you with the order?”
A waitress with a nice body figure came over. Her short uniform bound her full ass so tightly as if it was about to split any moment.
Murong Shan Shan glanced at the waitress, and looked at Xu Xing next to me, then with a smile she said, “First, for appetizer, let’s pick some local specialties: Kung Pao chicken, spicy tofu, sweet and sour carp, hmm, and also the authentic Huaiyang Cuisine, three portion of ducks, also white sliced chicken, on top of it, should we add a roasted whole lamb?”
After Murong Shan Shan suggested the order, Xu Xing’s face became white pale. My heart was not that cruel, so I said in a small voice, “Shan Shan, no need to order the whole roasted lamb, we won’t be able to finish it.”
“It’s OK. If we can’t finish it, we can just pack it and you can take it home…” Murong Shan Shan gave a very sweet smile.
I immediately lowered my voice and said, “Damn. Big sister, how much money does he owe you?”
“You just eat!”
