Sovereign to Immortality Chapter 8
Chapter 8 Heart Protection
Very soon, traveling merchants who were setting up stalls or wandering in the fair noticed this young boy who was leading a horse-carry beast. Compared to sitting Jia, they were certain that this young boy in front of them was a fat sheep waiting to be slaughtered.
“Hey, young man, what do you want to buy? I, Li Laosan, am running around everywhere and I have quite a few good things. Do you want to take a look?”
A rough looking man with a weather-beaten face was talking to Yang Junshan at the side of the street. In front of him was a five feet wide stall supported by bamboo sticks. On it were all sorts of items that were placed like a grocery store.
It was still this person. In his previous life, Yang Junshan had suffered a loss under this person’s hands. An ordinary short cyan steel sword had been named as the ‘Hundred Refined Cyan Swords’ by him. The jade coins that Yang Tiangang had given him were now in this person’s hands.
But this time …
Yang Junshan glanced at his stall, shook his head and was about to leave.
The man quickly said, “Young man, don’t go. Whatever you want, as long as you tell, I,Li Laosan will have something similar here!”
Yang Junshan laughed as he picked up a scabbard from the stall and asked, “How much is this short sword?”
The man’s eyes lit up and he said, “Young man, you have good eyesight. This snake carving short sword is made by an old craftsman and is made of steel that has been refined hundreds of times. Under magic tools, I dare not say it is a first-class item, but it is also a first-class item. This is the price of one stone coin for one stone coin. This snake carving short sword is originally for me, Li Laosan, to sell it for one jade coin.” “However, since this Young man is here to buy things for the first time, I will appreciate it.Just give me eighty stone coins!”
Yang Junshan hefted the short sword in his hand and then took it out to take a look. The blade of the sword was indeed quite sharp.
The man smiled proudly and said, “Young man, how is it? With this short sword in hand, even a normal berserk beast can stab into your body. If it weren’t for the fact that the Young man is so magnanimous, I, Li Laosan, would never sell it for eighty stone coins.”
Yang Junshan skillfully try a few sword flowers in the short sword in his hand. The man seemed to be someone who knew what was good for him. He could tell at a glance that Yang Junshan’s sword flowers were not for show, and he couldn’t help but retract his expression a little.
Yang Junshan put the dagger back into its scabbard, and said in a cold voice, “The quality of the sword is tough but it’s not tough. It can’t even be called a hundred times refined, at most it can only be thirty-six times refined!” “However, the craftsmanship of this level of the sword is not bad. It is obviously a work of art that is easy to master. It can’t be this Uncle’s craftsmanship, right?”
The man looked at Yang Junshan with an expression as if he had seen a ghost, because everything Yang Junshan had said perfectly matched the real material of the ‘Azure Swordlight Swordsman’. This was only a twelve-year-old boy, yet he had such insight.
The merchants who had been watching the show saw Li Laosan’s expression, and knew that the kid in front of them had seen through him. They laughed at Li Laosan, but the way they looked at Yang Junshan was less contemptuous.
Seeing that Yang Junshan was about to leave, the man immediately became anxious. Although this fair was bustling, but most of the nearby five villages’ spirit farmers were familiar with it. This time, he was seen through by a child, and the news would quickly spread throughout the fair, and at that time, no one would come to buy his things. He had to start from this young man in front of him.
“Wait, Young man!”
Yang Junshan had already expected that this man would stop him, but he still showed a stunned face while smiling in his heart: “What, you still want to buy or sell forcefully, I am a native of this Huangtu town!”
Yang Junshan’s words made the man even more anxious. He quickly waved his hand and said, “Young man, don’t misunderstand me, I still want to do some business in the town. Don’s get me wrong.”
Yang Junshan angrily said, “Then why did you call me?”
The man said with a face full of smiles, “I see that Young man’s eyes are sharp, I also have a few things in my hands, Young man, I want to take a look to see if there is anything I like.”
This was what he wanted! Yang Junshan was secretly delighted.
On his previous incarnation, Yang Junshan had become a rogue cultivator. In order to accumulate cultivation resources, he had been traveling around the city and was very clear on the situation of these rogue cultivators.
Yang Junshan said with a smile, “Oh, that depends on what you have in your hands!”
The man suddenly had an illusion, as if the person standing in front of him was not a 12 year-old boy, but a 120 year-old fox.
Li Laosan looked around and quickly patted Yang Junshan’s shoulder, saying, “Young man, come over here, to a more secluded place!”
After that, he greeted to a merchant he was familiar with and asked him to take care of the stall.
Yang Junshan nodded, and followed Li Laosan to a secluded place. However, Yang Junshan never let him leave the fair.
Seeing Yang Junshan act this way, Li Laosan was more and more certain that the young man in front of him was an old hand, and could only secretly curse his bad luck. He took out a worn out bag from his waist and shook it, only four items fell out and circled in front of Yang Junshan, who raised his eyebrows and said: “Just these four?”
Li Laosan, who already knew that Yang Junshan was a ‘master’ chuckled and said, “Of course it’s not just that, but I saw that my young friend has just started cultivating and hasn’t even awoken your spiritual cavities yet. Even if there are some good things, I’m afraid you won’t be able to use them!”
Yang Junshan glanced at him, turned his head and was about to leave.
Li Laosan was instantly anxious, he quickly pulled Yang Junshan back and said, “My friend, wait,wait!” “There are a few things that I need you to appraise!”
Only then did Yang Junshan stop walking, but his eyes were sizing up Li Junshan from head to toe, as if he did not believe Li Laosan’s words.
Li Laosan gritted his teeth and fished out another three items from his pocket, “I have only these seven items. If you aren’t satisfied, then I, Li Laosan, can only turn around and leave this deserted town. I can’t do this business anyway!”
Li Laosan’s complaint didn’t bother Yang Junshan at all, because that after Li Laosan taking out another three items, Yang Junshan’s eyes flickered, and he tried his best to suppress the joy in his heart: Got a treasure!
It was not easy for a small cultivator to occupy a stall in a small town’s fair. Although Li Laosan seemed to be complaining, he was actually unwilling to give up on the fair of Huangtu Town. In the end, he cautiously asked, “Young friend,which one do you like?”
The seven items in front of him were two Hundred Refined Weapons, a Shield, three pieces of stone with different texture, and a Heart Protecting Mirror with obvious fist marks on the surface.
Yang Junshan naturally didn’t believe that this Li Laosan only had this much useful stuff on him, but just like what Li Laosan said before, he had just reached the first layer of Mortal Realm. Even if this Li Laosan had some good stuff on him, he wouldn’t be able to use it, and he probably wouldn’t be able to afford it.
However, the seven items in front of him were beyond Yang Junshan’s expectation.
Yang Junshan pointed at the protective mirror with the fist imprint on it and asked, “How do you tell this?”
This Li Laosan was obviously afraid of Yang Junshan because he had seen through the background of his’ Snake Sculpting Green Light Dagger ‘. Therefore, this time, he took out weapons, ores and the like to show his sincerity, and this Heart Protecting Mirror was one of the last three items he took out.
Li Laosan smiled and said, “This is a treasure, it was a magical equipment …”
“But it’s been destroyed!” Yang Junshan pointed at the fist imprint and sneered, “The magical formation has been completely destroyed by this punch!”
Li Laosan said anxiously, “But it was once a magical artifact after all. There are still remnants of a magical formation on it!”
“It’s just a low-level magical equipment!” Yang Junshan continued to sneer with a disdainful look on his face, “Even if there are one or two magic prints left, what can they do?”
Li Laosan took a step back. “At least this Heart Protecting Mirror is made of a magical artifact level material!”
Yang Junshan didn’t retort this time, instead he nodded and said: “The material is still eye-catching, but without the support of the array, how much stronger is this Heart Protecting Mirror than the Hundred Refined Shield?”
Li Laosan was guilty after hearing Yang Junshan’s words, so he could only deny it in the end, “This, this is still a bit stronger, isn’t it?”
Yang Junshan sneered,seeing Li Laosan getting more and more worried, Yang Junshan finally said: “How about the price?”
Hearing this, Li Laosan was first overjoyed, then his face turned bitter as he probingly asked, “Young man, look at one hundred and fifty coins …”
“What?” Yang Junshan was instantly angry as he shouted, “This piece of trash…”
Li Laosan hurriedly bowed and put his finger to his mouth, whose face full of anxiety, telling Yang Junshan not to roar. He finally made the young man in front of him calm down, but then he heard him say in a low voice, “This broken Heart Protecting Mirror is also worth one hundred and fifty stone coins?”
This was because Yang Junshan was an 11-12 year old child. If he had been a grown-up just now, Li Laosan would have turned around and left even if he didn’t do business in the Desert City.
Li Laosan said with a troubled look on his face, “But this Heart Protecting Mirror was not broken. Although there is no magic formation, its material quality is much better than a Hundred Refined Weapon. That long blade costs 120 to 130 stone coins, and this Heart Protecting Mirror will at least cost 150 stone coins.”
Yang Junshan shook his head like a rattle drum and said, “Don’t forget, you were the one who cheated me earlier. Now, you must make it cheaper,to show your sincerity.”
Li Laosan got angry.If the person in front of him was a child, he wouldn’t have been able to hold much of a reason. If it was anyone else, he would have already given up on accompanying him.
“Kid, it seems that you’ve begun to draw spirit energy into your body, and there are more or less some remnants of the array formation on the Heart Protecting Mirror. Although the array formation has been broken and lost the previous protection power, these remnants of the array formation can still be used by you.
Yang Junshan naturally knew that he was taking advantage of Ye Chen, but since he was only a child now, messing around with him wouldn’t be a big deal.
“One hundred and fifty stone coins are fine, but let me choose one stone!”
