Chapter 489 - I Am A Young City Lord Too
There were many customers sitting inside the Golden Tower, and all of them were well-dressed. Those who dined in this place were usually men with prestigious statuses. At this moment, all of these people were staring at the big yellow dog who had suddenly intruded this place.
Ignoring the looks of surprise coming from the crowd, Big Yellow moved away from the servant and followed Jiang Chen. At the same time, the servant climbed up from the ground, still suffering from shock.
"What's going on?"
A middle aged man came forth. He was in his forties, and he had a formidable cultivation base. He was a Late Combat Soul warrior.
Jiang Chen paid no attention to this middle-aged man. He ran his eyes around the place, then found himself a table beside a window and sat down. Big Yellow hurried over and sat down opposite of Jiang Chen, his saliva dripping all over the place.
“Servant, serve me all the best wind and delicacies you have in this restaurant.”
Jiang Chen said.
Someone cried out in shock as all the customers turned their eyes to Jiang Chen. The duo had once again become the center of attention.
“Is he joking? Can these two really eat all the food?”
“This is the Golden Tower, the most expensive place in Hongyue City. He said he wants all of the best wine and food? How much would that cost? This is truly wasteful!”
“I’m sure this kid is a young master from some rich family, he is filthy rich!”
Many people were shaking their heads as they inwardly labeled Jiang Chen as a spoiled son of some rich family. As a matter of fact, energy type pills were the most crucial for any cultivator, and it wasn’t a good idea to spend huge amounts of those in exchange for food and wine, as Mortal and Earth Restoration Pills were necessary for cultivation.
The servant stood behind the restaurant manager without daring to speak a word. When the manager looked at Jiang Chen up and down, he was surprised to find out that he couldn’t sense Jiang Chen’s actual cultivation, and judging from Jiang Chen’s imposing appearance, he dared not show any neglect.
“Please wait a moment, young master.”
The restaurant manager said with a smile on his face. No business was too small for a business man. Furthermore, the Golden Tower was backed by a powerful force, and no one dared to eat without paying in this place.
“Have you guys heard? The 13th tycoon of the Asura Palace has died in the Chaotic Ocean. I heard he was killed by the Seven Chaotic Pirates.”
“Yea, I heard. Such a pity. All 13 tycoons of the Asura Palace are elites amongst geniuses. At a very young age, the 13th tycoon Liang Qing had already broken through to the First Grade Combat King realm, while the rest of the tycoons have even more powerful cultivations. Liang Qing was on a training journey in the Chaotic Ocean, but he was killed by the famous pirates there. I’m sure the Asura Palace will be furious upon hearing this.”
“That’s for sure. The Asura Palace is one of the strongest powers of the Liang Province, and their 13 Tycoons are all very famous. Something like this has never happened before. Nowadays, the pirates of the Chaotic Ocean are getting more rampant, and they actually have the guts to kill the 13th tycoon. They’re simply crazy!”
“I’ve heard that many of the younger generation geniuses of the Asura Palace are fighting to replace the 13th tycoon’s position. Also, the upper echelon of the Asura Palace also announced a mission. Anyone who is able to bring back the head of the pirate who killed Liang Qing will be the new 13th tycoon.”
“This is a great opportunity for those geniuses. The tycoons of the Asura Palace all have prestigious statuses. Not only are their positions supreme, they are also given the best resources from the Asura Palace. A privilege like that can make anyone envious. However, the Chaotic Ocean is famous for its chaotic environment, so it won’t be easy to kill those pirates and avenge Liang Qing.”
Many people were discussing the recent events in this restaurant. Jiang Chen and Big Yellow both heard every word the customers spoke. This Asura Palace was clearly one of the major powers in the Liang Province, and it was most likely similar to the Qi Province’s Black Sect back then in terms of strength across the continent. Of course, there was no way the Black Sect could compare with the Asura Palace. Even the Martial Saint Dynasty was weak in comparison.
From the discussions taking place, it wasn’t difficult to tell that these 13 tycoons carried a big weight in the Asura Palace. They were the elites amongst the geniuses. The fact that one of them had been killed in the Chaotic Ocean was big news to the people in this place.
“Buddy, do you know about this Asura Palace? And where is this Chaotic Ocean?”
Big Yellow curiously asked. He treated Jiang Chen as someone who knew every answer.
“I’ve never heard of this Asura Palace. The Chaotic Ocean is an aquatic region that’s rich with islands and resources. The people of the Liang Province journey to that place with hopes of finding something good, and that’s the reason why it’s such a chaotic place. Many pirates roam about freely, that’s why it was named the Chaotic Ocean.”
Having once been the greatest Saint underneath the heavens, the Asura Palace was just a small power in his eyes. Perhaps it was a new power that had emerged within the last century. That’s why Jiang Chen had never heard of it before. As for the Chaotic Ocean, Jiang Chen had heard about it, but he had never been there yet.
“Why don’t we pay this Chaotic Ocean a visit?”
Big Yellow was greatly interested in this place. He was a guy who could never settle for peace, and his biggest hobby was to add trouble to already chaotic scenes.
“We’re in no rush, let’s finish our meals first.”
Jiang Chen smiled. In fact, he was interested in this Chaotic Ocean as well. He was 600 Dragon Marks away from breaking through to the Combat King realm, and if he paid a visit to the Chaotic Ocean, it should be enough for him to break through to the Combat King realm.
“Servant, where is this master dog’s food? Hurry up, I’m starving!”
Big Yellow started yelling with his loud voice.
“Eat your farts! Everyone, get the hell out of this place!”
Right after Big Yellow finished his call, an extremely arrogant voice sounded out from outside the Golden Tower. After that, about a dozen men came walking into the restaurant. The few men who led the group were wearing the same clothes as the guards, and they all wore arrogant expressions.
After the group came in, the guards split up and positioned themselves in two lines, giving way to two men and a girl. These three were all dressed luxuriously, and their appearance was young and imposing. However, they all possessed powerful auras of Late Combat Soul warriors. The girl had a beautiful face and a pair of big breasts, but she gave of a debased feeling.
The arrival of these three immediately attracted the eyes of all. When the crowd looked at the young man standing in the middle, fear immediately emerged on their faces.
“He is young master Chang Qing, son of Hongyue City Lord, and inner circle disciple of the Asura Palace. Being a Late Combat Soul warrior at such a young age, he’s a truly talented man.”
“The other two are also inner circle disciples of the Asura Palace. Looks like we won’t be able to finish our meals this time.”
Someone recognized the identity of this newcomer and began whispering amongst themselves.
The restaurant manager and servant quickly came forth and bowed deeply tower Chang Qing, saying, “It’s the Golden Tower’s honor to have young master Chang Qing here.”
“Save your breath. Our young master has booked this whole place, and now, all of you can get the hell out from here!”
One of the guards shouted loudly at the customers who were eating. He was chasing everyone away for his young master.
"Chang Qing, this is not very nice."
An awkward expression emerged on the manager’s face. The Golden Tower was after all running a business, and chasing away all their customers would leave a huge negative impact on their reputation. Furthermore, as a distinguished guest of the Golden Tower, Chang Qing actually had his own private room on the upper floor, and that was the best treatment he could get here. But now, his decision to chase away all the customers brought an unsightly expression to the manager’s face.
“Manager, my senior disciple Tan Lang is going to hunt for the pirates in the Chaotic Ocean soon, fight for the tycoon position. Today, he is here for a visit, and I’m going to use your Golden Tower as a venue to welcome him. For the Golden Tower, this is a great honor. Don’t you think so?”
Chang Qing was waving the folding fan in his hand as he spoke.
“What?! Tan Lang of the Asura Palace?!”
The manager’s expression instantly changed upon hearing the name Tan Lang. This Tan Lang was a genius who recently made his debut. He had left the Asura Palace for a period of time and only returned recently. After he returned, he had quickly become a young Combat King, and the Asura Palace also had a very high opinion of him. He was also one of the most popular candidates for the tycoon position. A genius like this, not only the Golden Tower, even the Hongyue City Lord wouldn’t dare offend him easily.
Tan Lang’s reputation was obviously well known. When the customers who were still dining heard that he was coming, they immediately left everything behind, cupped their fist toward Chang Qing, and left.
Those customers were certain of one thing; with the situation like this, even if Tan Lang wasn’t here for his meal, there was no way they could sit here comfortably any longer. This Chang Qing was a famous spoilt son, and no one dared to offend him. Furthermore, he was accompanied by two disciples of the Asura Palace. In the Liang Province, the Asura Palace was like their king, and if someone challenged their authority, the entire Hongyue City could easily be turned into ashes.
Chang Qing was very satisfied with the situation, it made him feel as if he was given face in front of his fellow disciples. However, when he saw two fellows sitting comfortably next to a window, his expression immediately became cold.
The two who had yet to leave were obviously Jiang Chen and Big Yellow. Big Yellow was angry now, and began scratching the table with his hooves. He had nearly drowned in his own saliva, and even now, he had yet to eat a single thing. Thus, it was just a joke to ask him to leave this place.
“You two, quickly get the hell outta here!”
The guard furiously pointed his finger at Jiang Chen and Big Yellow.
“What are you yelling for?! Who do you think you are?! How dare you talk to this master dog like that?!”
Big Yellow would never take a small-fry like this seriously.
His words caused the guard to erupt with anger. As the guard of the City Lord Mansion, his nose would be pointed toward the sky no matter where he went, and everyone who met him would have to bow. However, a dog had just talked to him in such an arrogant manner. He was simply seeking death!
"Manager, when are you going to serve us our food?"
Without looking at Chang Qing and the others, Jiang Chen asked the manager.
The manager couldn’t help but wipe some cold sweat from his forehead. He had no idea where this young man came from, and he had no clue why he was so ignorant, unable to see that all the other customers had left the place.
The manager didn’t want his restaurant to be ruined. Before the guard could react, he hastily arrived in front of Jiang Chen. With a smile on his face, he said, “Young master, that man is the young City Lord. He has booked the entire place today, and I hope young master can pardon us.”
"Is that so? I'm a young City Lord as well."
Jiang Chen said with an indifferent tone. His words were in fact true. He was the young City Lord of the Fragrant Sky City.
