Transmigrated into the Cannon Fodder’s Daughter - Chapter 37.1
Cang Ming yawned and lowered his eyes. His long eyelashes gave him a naturally innocent aura as he silently listened to Lu Haisheng’s report.
“…That’s pretty much it. He hasn’t been found yet. He’s hiding well, but the backlash alone will eat him alive. You guys do what you want. Just destroy those beads. They’re fakes.”
At the mention of the beads, Cang Ming’s eyes narrowed, and a sharp glint flashed through his eyes. But it disappeared just as quickly as it came. Replacing it was a lazy demeanor, and Cang Ming looked as though he could fall asleep at any moment now.
Suddenly, Lu Haisheng heard a loud shout. “You swindler! Give me back my money!”
Lu Haisheng’s ears perked up. It wasn’t about him, right? He had always been a fair and impartial businessman. However, in this ghost market, there were a good amount of scammers. He was about to see who was being scammed, but when he turned around, he saw a human striding towards him menacingly.
Lu Haisheng raised an eyebrow. He and his boss must be in the way of this angry fellow. As a polite demon, Lu Haisheng gently smiled and stepped aside so that the middle-aged man could seek justice from the right person.
‘Hey, this human looks a bit familiar. It’s probably someone who comes to the ghost market often.’
In the next second, the human stopped directly in front of Lu Haisheng. The human was seething in anger, so much so that his eyes bulged out from their sockets. The human’s fists were clenched as he prepared to give Lu Haisheng a piece of his mind.
Lu Haisheng’s eyes widened. “Are you mistaken?”
Then, a clear voice rang out. “So you’re the one you scammed my disciple? Come, let’s have a good discussion.”
He turned his head to see an incredibly beautiful woman, whose appearance was like that of a spring flower. She held a wooden board emitting dense Yin energy.
Huh? As a human, why wasn’t she scared of the Yin energy entering her body from the wooden board?
Lu Haisheng’s attention switched from the middle-aged man to the beautiful human girl.
Sun Rui was furious. He clenched his fists, wondering where he should hit Lu Haisheng. Was it better to hit his eyes or his nose?
He got even angrier when he realized the scam artist had the nerve to walk away!
“Don’t tell me you’ve forgotten about me!” Sun Rui angrily yelled, “The techniques you sold me were fake! And you caused me to fart for a whole week!”
The bellow echoed throughout the marketplace. Shopkeepers and surrounding customers curiously looked over at the commotion. Which moron had been so easily scammed?
Lu Xiao, who was standing next to Sun Rui, shuffled away from him, pretending to not know him. She shouldn’t have claimed him as her disciple! How stupid! Now everyone in the ghost market knew he had been cheated.
Lu Haisheng came back to his senses. “It’s you,” he realized.
Over the years, he had only sold his techniques once, so he quickly recalled the event. At that time, he had just arrived in the human world and wanted to do business. Unfortunately, he had no money, but he was able to meet a human who was enthusiastic about learning Taoism. Lu Haishengsimply sold him a copy of his most basic teachings. If the man learned it well, he would’ve been able to summon a few minutes of rain.
That was the only time Lu Haisheng sold his techniques.
“I didn’t lie to you. My methods are correct. You’re just cultivating it wrong.” Lu Haisheng spoke with absolute certainty.
Sun Rui became even angrier! This guy sold him a fake and still had the nerve to push the blame onto him. He rolled up his sleeves and prepared to say something when he heard a soft cough. He immediately calmed down.
The cough had come from Li Xiao. Li Xiao was his Master, someone Sun Rui had to respect. His Master wouldn’t let him suffer! Hence, Sun Rui didn’t do anything and simply glared at the scammer.
Li Xiao had a good idea about what had happened. Her cold gaze fell on Lu Haisheng. “You’re not human, are you?” she asked calmly.
The question seemed more like a statement than a question.
If it were anyone else, it would’ve sounded like an insult. But Lu Haisheng wasn’t like anyone else! As a demon, he couldn’t help but feel like a child caught stealing cookies from the cookie jar. He looked toward his Boss, Cang Ming, who leisurely watched the show from the sidelines.
Under Lu Haisheng’s gaze, Cang Ming yawned.
‘Maybe I should get a new boss!’
When Li Xiao saw Lu Haisheng’s reaction, she knew she was right. She smirked and said, “Let’s talk somewhere else.”
Cang Ming gazed at her. “Let’s go.”
