Long Live Summons! - Chapter 765.1
Huge Thanks to Nathas for sponsoring 3 chapters of Long Live Summons!
City Lord Tu Hai had learned about his esteemed guest long before his arrival from his steward, Jiao Shi.
This esteemed guest was surnamed Yue, first name Titan, and was a young master from a big family in Southern Heaven Realm. Which family exactly was left unsaid, but Tu Hai thought that it was definitely either one of the top ten clans in Southern Heaven Realm or possibly even the top ten clans in the entire Heaven Realm. In regards to the great difference in both strength and status, he did not dare to address him by name. No matter if it was out of courtesy, respect, or deliberately trying to flatter the esteemed guest, Tu Hai could not address him directly by name as with the other youngsters: even if his own name was more than a hundred times greater than the others.
He very respectfully addressed the other party as ‘Third Young Master’, using the title that the butler Jiao Shi had inquired about on the other party’s side.
At Tu Hai’s deference, Tudor, and the generals behind him, were a little puzzled.
It didn’t look like he was a Heaven Rank expert at all, how could the city lord be so gracious in welcoming him?
Could it be that this young man’s status is particularly honorable?
“I am grateful to the city lord for welcoming me today, and our hearts are touched beyond words.” The old fox standing beside Yue Yang was in charge of speaking, while Yue Yang nodded his head slightly and put forth a look of a great young master.
“This is just a small town in the countryside, I’m afraid the simplicity would tarnish your esteemed honor.” Although Yue Yang only nodded his head, it also made City Lord Tu Hai feel particularly happy.
This is the aura of a man with power!
The job of speaking and flattering should be done by the butlers. Which powerful person would keep on speaking non-stop?
Not a single one.
Generally speaking, when those in positions of power open their mouth and give a command, no matter whether right or wrong, it must be executed.
“Welcome esteemed guests……..”
The butler, Jiao Shi and the others, hurriedly bowed.
“No need for formalities.” The old fox by Yue Yang’s side replied. With a wave of his hand, the Li brothers immediately started handing out red packets one by one to those who greeted them, to show the generosity of their master. The red packets did not contain gold coins, which were unbefitting of their masters status, but rather a crystal-clear falling star bead.
The falling star beads were definitely something that was not available in Heaven Realm.
Even in the Tong Tian Tower, it can only be found near the Falling Star Islands.
The people from Heaven Realm were unaware of the true value of these beads.
When seeing that it was a treasure they had never seen before, their first impression was that it must be a rare and precious gem.
This small investment by Yue Yang was the key to Rizhao City. Following this, Yue Yang had a series of plans to implement here in the future, in order to take over Rizhao City. This was just the first step in his plan!
As both sides exchanged pleasantries, two people were silently spying on each other.
Yue Yang couldn’t help but observe City Lord Tu Hai who had been guarding Rizhao City for three thousand years.
No matter how inadequate City Lord Tu Hai was in managing his internal affairs, at least, he was a qualified guard. The Gate of Heaven Realm, which connected Western Heaven Realm and Tong Tian Tower, had never been lost when he guarded it for thousands of years. Moreover, all the cities around Rizhao City had fallen before, at least once. Only Rizhao City, which was guarded by Tu Hai, had never fallen.
From this, it could be seen that City Lord Tu Hai’s abilities were extraordinarily powerful.
City Lord Tu Hai was also observing Yue Yang.
He had seen tens of millions of young people, but none of them were able to hold a match to this ‘Third Young Master’ in front of him.
Even excluding the esteemed Third Young Master, even the two young men beside him who were called Tian Luo and Tan Lang, even those two escorts Ye Kong and Fatty Hai, were all extremely talented geniuses. These youngsters, at a very young age, had reached Earth Rank, Level 5 and above, some reaching Quasi-Heaven Rank and even Heaven Rank. How could they have reached this realm in their twenties if it wasn’t for the backing of some great clan or sect, cultivating these talents with all their might and spending all their heavenly talents and treasures on them?
After eating and drinking for a while, City Lord Tu Hai, who was constantly searching for topics, was acutely aware that the usual popular songs and dances that he was proud of had actually made the esteemed guest a little bored and was secretly distressed.
The esteemed guests came from a renown background and grew up amongst riches.
These songs and dances naturally would not amount to anything in their eyes ….
What exactly does the Third Young Master like?
If he didn’t come up with something new, he wouldn’t be able to keep the other person. Giving gifts is one way, but it’s harder said than done. What excuse should he use to give the esteemed guest a gift? A low grade gift would displease him; and he obviously would not need things like gold and money; on the matter of women, he would most likely not be lacking and the women in his group might even take offense; as for treasures, even his guards are given Gold Rank treasures!
“I have heard that the Potential Alliance War Beast Shop was arrogant and bullied its customers. I have ordered my men to punish them heavily. Would you perhaps be willing to show us the Golden Flying Dragon that your subordinates purchased from the shop? Or perhaps we can head over to the fighting ring and see its performance in a beast fight while having a drink?” City Lord Tu Hai was testing Yue Yang to see if he liked watching beast fights, if so, he could use this opportunity to purposely lose a few rounds through betting. That way he could push a bit of money over to Yue Yang.
This had been his usual practice whenever he had previously tried to curry favor with Heaven Rank experts.
City Lord Tu Hai felt that it would not be so simple to draw this Third Young Master into his camp but he had to at least try.
Yue Yang waved his hand, “No need.”
The old fox who was sitting beside him laughed loudly, explaining while giving off the air of Yue Yang’s strategist, “The Potential Alliance War Beast Shop, has been taught enough lessons, Third Young Master’s sister has also gotten a grey sparrow’s egg that she liked. As for the golden flying dragon, Ye Kong and Fatty Hai originally wanted to buy it to feed to master’s Reaper Mantis, if it had been a fair deal, the price wouldn’t have mattered… Anyway, this matter is already in the past, our Third Young Master won’t pursue it again, the parties involved have also learned their lesson, so let’s just write it off!”
“Warbeast fighting, we’re interested.” Ye Kong and Fatty Hai stood up.
City Lord Tu Hai gave a signal to his cousin Tudor…
Tudor immediately led a group of generals and surrounded Fatty Hai and Ye Kong as they left their seats and headed towards the fighting ring.
Butler Jiao Shi, on the other hand, dismissed the singers and dancers, then personally served City Lord Tu Hai and his esteemed guest, Yue Yang. Xue Tan Lang ignored the others around him and took out a book before reading out loud. Beside Tu Hai, Xiang Wen, who was known as the top bureaucrat of Rizhao CIty, and who was appointed as the consul of Rizhao City’s tax administration, was having a light conversation with Prince Tian Luo. As he was chatting, he subconsciously swept a look at the book that Xue Tan Lang was reading.
There were many people who read books in public just to show off that they were knowledgeable.
Often holding an upside down book even without noticing it.
The consul, Xiang Wen, had just rushed over for the banquet and hadn’t had a chance to scout out any information about the other party from the butler Jiao Shi.
He was still a bit disdainful towards Xue Tan Lang for reading in public, thinking that this was a really pretentious young man. Even if he really was thirsty for knowledge, must he try to read and recite from a book at a banquet? He must be faking it!
However, when he took a closer look, he was shocked to see that the writing on that book were not ordinary words, but actually Heaven Realm Runes.
There were no words to explain them at all.
