“Such a terrible reforge technique.” Qian Jin looked at the sword handle in his hand and threw it to Cech Flet. “Here is a saint item for you.”
Saint item! The most powerful equipment that a warrior could ask for!
A saint item could allow a warrior below the Saint Warrior Realm to battle with a saint warrior.
A warrior who entered the saint-level would be a saint warrior.
An item that entered the saint-level would be a saint item.
Just like how a warrior would be a soul-power warrior if this person had a warrior soul, a warrior weapon that broke through the threshold would be a soul weapon.
A soul-power warrior could rival a saint warrior if he had a saint item even if he weren’t a peak soul-power warrior.
Soul items weren’t only powerful in terms of offensive or defensive abilities. They could also activate the user’s potential. At the same time, just like saint warriors, saint weapons had unique abilities similar to the soul realms of saint warriors. Saint items’ abilities were called saint souls.
Everyone knew that saint items were powerful, but not many people knew about saint souls. Only the top-tier warriors, mages, and blacksmiths knew about them.
However, none of the blacksmiths alive today could make the equipment that they forged to have saint souls.
Qian Jin read Uncle Blake’s notes, and he knew everything about saint items. Out of all the blacksmiths that he could see in the powerful forces, Qian Jin was confident that no one knew about saint items better than him.
“What did you say?”
For the first time, Zence Matten wasn’t able to maintain his composure in such a situation, and he also fell off his horse. He stared at the sword handle in Cech Flet’s hand, which looked like a piece of wasted iron.
Duren Burg’s riding skill was even worse compared to Zence Matten. After falling off the horse, he jumped back onto it by lightly kicking the ground. He also stared at the sword handle in Cech Flet’s hand intently.
Even Fanta Kunge who had been down lately was shocked, and he looked at the normal-looking sword handle in Cech Flet’s hand in confusion.
Everyone’s mind was filled with questions, and they thought, “This trash-looking thing is a saint item? Did Qian Jin’s eyes stop working? Or did he get hit so much that his brain is lagging?”
“This is a saint item?” Cech Flet was confused as well. He turned his hand and observed it, and he couldn’t figure out the uniqueness of the sword handle.
“Take off the last bit of metal pieces on the handle,” Qian Jin said as he pointed at the sword handle. “I don’t know who got this sword handle. The forge master must have realized that this sword handle was great, so he connected a blade to it. He had no idea that the sword handle itself is a saint item.”
Qian Jin shook his head as he continued, “It is like someone adding feet onto the painting of a snake.”
“Although the forge master knows something, the person isn’t too clear on everything,” Qian Jin sighed and thought to himself, “If the assassin weren’t using the sword with the connected blade and were only using the sword handle, the outcome of the battle would be hard to tell.”
At the critical moment, the assassin could even sacrifice the saint item and use it to become a saint warrior. The effect of becoming a saint using a saint item was much greater compared to soul weapons. The user would be purified, and their own soul realm would be devoured by the saint soul of the saint item, forming an even more powerful soul realm.
“A lack of knowledge.” Qian Jin shrugged. If the assassin knew better, everyone in Qian Jin’s team might have died.
Cech Flet removed the last piece of blade that was attached to the sword handle, and he suddenly felt like the sword handle was an extension of his arms and a part of his body. He felt comfortable holding it.
“Send your warrior soul into it,” Qian Jin recited the information on Uncle Blake’s notes, “Communicate with it and awaken it.”
Buzz… buzz… buzz…
The sword handle buzzed and created a series of loud noises. Everyone felt that Cech Flet become different, and a streak of strange power was radiating out of his body. It felt like his body couldn’t suppress the insane amount of strength in his body.
Metal-ringing noises were heard, and a sword dashed out of the sword handle. The blade looked soft like mercury, and it seemed like streaks of energy mingled and intertwined before forming the blade.
The blade was as thin as the wings of a bee, and it had the width of the branch of a willow tree. Combined with Cech Flet’s aura, everything seemed beautiful as the power of the saint soul slowly radiated outward.
“Nice sword!” Cech Flet rarely emphasized his words, but he was overjoyed at this moment.
“Damn it! So envious!” Duren Burg stared at Cech Flet’s sword and said, “It is really a saint item! With this thing, even Comrade can’t defeat you.”
“Eh.” Cech Flet nodded in confidence and said, “If we are fighting to the death, I can kill him.”
Qian Jin laughed and didn’t try to refute. With this sword, Cech Flet would be no different from a saint warrior. If one had to find a difference, saint warriors’ soul realms could cover a larger area compared to the saint soul of the sword in Cech Flet’s hand.
Although Qian Jin was confident that he could rival a few half-saint warriors, fighting a saint warrior was a different ball game.
Although Cech Flet’s strength was powerful, he had one critical drawback; he couldn’t reveal his power before others.
When this man was on the territory of Zence, every time he showed his real strength, he would have to kill everyone who saw it and wasn’t in the team. Chapter 67: The reason for not recognizing
Liu Mingyu was a little surprised while she sat in Yang Chen’s car. “I didn’t know you drove a BMW to buy breakfast for us sisters in the office, it must be a really tough job for a rich young master like you.”
I’m not some rich young master, this car is actually my wife’s.” Yang Chen didn’t feel embarrassed saying, “Sis Mingyu, you can just think of me as a pretty boy who is being taken care of by a wealthy woman.”
“Your face isn’t white.” Liu Mingyu chuckled and said, “Moreover, you’re more useful than a pretty boy.”
[TL: Joke lost in translation, the words literally translates to small white face, is a derogative term of calling someone an attractive young man/pretty boy/gigolo that is useless/worthless.”]
As the two joked about, Yang Chen started the car. Only after they got onto the road did Yang Chen ask, “Sis Mingyu, how do you intend to deal with the recorded footage and photos?”
Liu Mingyu remained silent for a moment before saying, “You can keep it, or throw it away.”
“You don’t want it?”
“So what if I keep it. I believe that after this experience, Department Head Ma wouldn’t attempt something like this again. I’m just an ordinary employee, and don’t want to cause so much trouble, as long as nobody tries to intentionally hurt me again, I’m fine.” Those words carried some helplessness, but this was her honest answer.
Yang Chen also expected this outcome, and nodded without appearing to be surprised. He didn’t stay on that topic, and instead asked, “Then I would like to ask, beautiful madam, as thanks, where would you like to treat me to lunch?”
Exhausted, Liu Mingyu rubbed her forehead, “Drive towards Famous Road, they have several restaurants that are pretty good there.”
“You look very tired, are you feeling sleepy?” Yang Chen noticed Liu Mingyu’s little action.
“Yep…… It seems like the drug’s effect hasn’t receded completely.” Liu Mingyu also didn’t hide anything, she truly felt drowsy.
Yang Chen frowned, “Then let’s not go for lunch, it’s better that you rest first. I’ll send you home.”
“Thank you……” Liu Mingyu felt warmth flowing into her heart, she suddenly realized that this man beside her had a caring and considerate side, “We should still go to eat, I may be feeling a little sleepy, but I’m even hungrier.”
Yang Chen followed according to Liu Mingyu’s wish, and the two soon arrived at a rather clean Cantonese Restaurant. It looked like a chain restaurant, and wasn’t especially high-grade. However, it worked well with the city’s fast rhythm when it came to serving meals.
Not long after the two sat down, they quickly ordered the dishes. Yang Chen hadn’t had his fill in the morning before he left to settle Liu Mingyu’s predicament. He was hungry for a while now, so he began to devour the food ravenously.
“Can’t you pay attention to your image? You look like you haven’t eaten for three years.” Liu Mingyu couldn’t resist laughing as she said.
“Something like an image is left for men and women who want to impress, I’m already married; image is worth nothing to me.” Said Yang Chen as he chewed a big mouthful of food.
While the two were chatting, a man and woman suddenly entered the door behind Liu Mingyu. The woman was clothed attractively and prettily, with a petite figure. The two men behind her seemed to be checking her out.”
“What a coincidence, I never would’ve expected Miss Liu Mingyu to also make an appointment to have a meal with a man here.” The woman playfully looked at the two, and smiled as she spoke.
Liu Mingyu reacted slightly strangely, but immediately showed a flowery smile as she stood up and said, “Isn’t Miss Wang the same too? Moreover you even have two men to keep you company.”
“They are just my assistants, we’ve just finished business at a company nearby and came here for a meal. May I know how to address your male friend, Miss Liu?”
Yang Chen somewhat unwillingly put down his chopsticks, smiled and said, “My name is Yang, Yang Chen.”
“Wang Yue, pleased to meet you.” Wang Yue extended her hand with a confident smile.
Yang Chen gently shook her hand, then once again sat down and picked up his chopsticks to eat.
Wang Yue sent a disdainful look, and coldly smiled as she said, “May I know what’s the relationship between Miss Liu and Mr Yang? Could it be that Mr Yang is the new ‘capable person’ that Miss Liu found?”
Liu Mingyu didn’t retreat an inch as she charmingly smiled and said, “Yang Chen is my colleague, we came out to work. If it’s about a ‘capable person’, he definitely can’t compare to Miss Wang’s two assistants in ‘capability’. Furthermore they both have tall figures, and can definitely satisfy Miss Wang.”
The two women opposed each other with hostility, their eyes were like cold winds and sharp knives, causing Yang Chen who was eating to feel that the air temperature had fallen by a couple of degrees.
“Miss Liu is too courteous, I see that Mr Yang is such a great eater, he must be very strong. When he works for Miss Liu, he definitely has to exert himself a lot. Right, is the reason Mr Yang’s so hungry because he overexerted his body physically?” Wang Yue pretended with a bewildered expression, “Seems like Miss Liu needs Mr Yang to do a lot of things, huh?”
“No matter how big of an eater a person is, he can’t possibly compare with the strength of two people. Furthermore, with two men, you can do things that cannot be done with only one man, what do you think, Miss Wang?” Liu Mingyu wasn’t stingy in her counterattack.
You guys can bicker all your want, why pull me into it? As a lady, speaking like a rogue in the middle of the day, this world is really chaotic. Yang Chen silently criticized, he felt at a loss towards this woman who suddenly appeared.
“Miss Wang, forgive me for being blunt, but you resemble a movie actress that I really like.” Yang Chen raised his head, and spoke seriously.
There’s no woman who wouldn’t like others praising their beauty, especially a young, successful career woman like that who is slightly popular. Hearing Yang Chen’s words, Wang Yue revealed a little pride, then pretended to be indifferent as she said, “Oh? Which? Mr Yang shouldn’t overestimate me, there’s no way I can compare with someone as famous as Miss Liu.”
Yang Chen carefully glanced at Wang Yue a few times, and muttered a praise, “You really resemble her the more I look, I often watch this actress’ films, I remember her name is Matsushima Kaede, has Miss Wang heard of her?”
[TL: Porn star.]
Wang Yue, who looked slightly pleased, immediately turned angry after hearing those words. She angrily snorted, “Mr Yang really knows how to joke, who is that actress? I truly have no idea.”
“It’s normal that you don’t know.” Yang Chen sighed as she said, “I’m pretty familiar with that Miss Matsushima, but I wasn’t able to recognize your similarities to her immediately. I tried hard to think the reason, and finally came to a conclusion. The main reason why I wasn’t able to recognize your similarities at first glance, was because you’re wearing clothes!”
Wang Yue’s face immediately went pale and green from anger, she angrily stamped her feet, glared at Yang Chen, and quickly walked out of the restaurant with her two assistants.
Liu Mingyu at the side finally couldn’t endure her laughter as she said, “You’re truly rotten to the core, to actually place Wang Yue together with a Japanese AV actress. I reckon she won’t be able to fall asleep tonight.”
“That woman was asking for it, why did she disturb me while I was eating?” Yang Chen grumbled.
“She is the PR for a different company, and often runs into me, I snatched away many customers from her hands, so she always quarrels with me whenever we meet.” Liu Mingyu explained.
Yang Chen spiritedly said, “So that’s why Sis Mingyu achieves number 1 in performance every year, being beautiful is indeed the one and only way.”
Liu Mingyu didn’t deny this, she stroked her smooth long hair, smiled and said, “This is how this industry is like, but you shouldn’t think of it in the wrong direction. Fact is, when we have talks with those large corporations, the most they get is eating a little tofu with their eyes. If they really try to have a touch, there isn’t even a need for us resist, the opposite party’s higher ups would severely punish them. Unless they don’t want to work anymore, they definitely wouldn’t dare to do anything to overstep their boundaries. Those large corporations treat their reputation and industry talks extremely seriously. Actually the outside world still has many prejudices towards the job of a PR, but these are things that cannot be helped. Like the matter of me snatching away Wang Yue’s business, if you told others that I didn’t provide any special services, nobody will believe it.”
[TL: In chinese, eating someone’s tofu means taking advantage of a person, usually referring to a lady and her body.
Yang Chen nodded, and once again revealed a naughty smile as he said, “Right, so Sis Mingyu also knows of fellow student Matsushima, seems like you also have knowledge in that field.”
The Other Hybrid “You can’t clap with one hand, for those kind of things, how can it be done with only a man and without a woman? If a woman knows nothing, how is she going to make her man happy? If a woman learns to act from an actress, is there anything inappropriate about that?” Liu Mingyu replied without the slightest bit of embarrassment.
Yang Chen was truly speechless, he sent Liu Mingyu a thumbs-up, and continued immersing himself in the food. Since Qian Jin was now the president of the Central Mystic Pharmacist Union Cech Flet didn’t need to worry about these crazy mystic pharmacists discovering his identity, capturing him, running sick experiments on him. However, it was still not a good idea for Cech Flet to expose his status as a mixed-blood.
Since Cech Flet couldn’t reveal his identity, his combat strength was almost the weakest in the team. Now, this saint item could make up for all the combat strength that was lost.
Just like a moment ago when Qian Jin was attacked, out of everyone in the team, only Cech Flet didn’t move. It wasn’t suitable for him to show his fallen angel bloodline power.
That identity would chaos a massive uproar in the Zence Empire.
“Saint Item!” Duren Burg drooled and turned his attention to Qian Jin. He said, “Comrade, when you can make saint items, can you forge me one? I’m not greedy. I only want one that looks like a cigarette. Then, I can smoke it all the time and don’t need to worry about running out…”
Before Duren Burg could finish his request, Qian Jin kicked him away.
Qian Jin thought, “What kind of a strange saint item is that? Even if I can forge saint items, I won’t make it. If Uncle Blake learns that I created such a thing, I will be severely punished!”
“We are getting closer and closer to Qian City.” Qian Jin looked in the direction of Qian City and sighed even though he hadn’t seen it yet.
No one said anything, and the team traveled forward quickly.
Right now, Qian Jin’s status was completely different. If he didn’t try to provoke anyone, the people of the Qian Family wouldn’t dare to mess with him.
Sometimes, status was an extraordinary power.
The giant Qian City appeared before Qian Jin and others. This city that wasn’t protected by city walls stood on the plane confidently.
The familiar city, the usual paths, the ordinary gate of Qian Family, and the unfamiliar pedestrians.
At this moment, everyone saw the familiar figure of a senior who was squatting beside the gate.
Qian Cheng’s status didn’t change even though Qian Jin’s identity transformed drastically. His treatment in the Qian Family didn’t improve; he was still a groom.
Qian Jin knew that the higher his status was outside Qian Family, Qian Zhanxuan would be more likely to keep his father as a groom to shame him.
A proud expression appeared on Qian Jin’s face as he thought, “Qian Zhanxuan doesn’t know that regardless of what job he gives my father, I would feel proud of my father. Qian Zhanxuan doesn’t know; he will never know.
The thin longsword in Qian Jin’s hand shattered.
“Such a terrible reforge technique.” Qian Jin looked at the sword handle in his hand and threw it to Cech Flet. “Here is a saint item for you.”
