Chapter 66 – Way
If Mustache said 10,000, the entangled Xu Jian might pay this money. But the other party opened his lion’s mouth wide, stretched out a finger, and called out a million.
Xu Jian can only sincerely suggest to him that — Many banks have opened their doors for you.
How fast is it to rob a bank? What kind of life is it to take a broken bamboo pole?! One million. How many years of rent does he have to collect to have one million?
Qin Chen’s hand also stopped when he wanted to pay with his phone. Scanning the payment code doesn’t support transactions with such a large denomination of one million. Even if he goes to the bank to withdraw, he usually has to make an appointment for withdrawal.
Qin Chen stared at Mustache, thinking that he was deliberately making things difficult.
Being stared at by Xu Jian, Mustache wasn’t annoyed. He said while stroking his beard, “I’m robbing it.”
Seeing that Mustache was unruly and strong, Xu Jian had a question mark on his forehead, “??”
Actually admitting that his asking price of one million is equivalent to robbing a bank!
Xu Jian almost laughed angrily at Mustache, he couldn’t care less whether he was a great master or not, “Are you quite self-aware of your feelings?”
This person clearly takes him as a person with a lot of stupid money.
Mustache put his hand with his mobile phone on his chest and made a Buddhist courtesy, “I haven’t opened the business for three years.”
The corner of Xu Jian’s mouth twitched, staring at Mustache dumbly. For a moment, he didn’t even know whether to roast him about wearing a Taoist robe performing a Buddhist courtesy or about him being so straightforward.
Is this the legend of ‘if you don’t open for three years, you can eat for three years’?Means shops that have low transaction volumes but their profits are high like Antique shops, luxury goods shops, etc…
There were too many slots, and in the end, Xu Jian still couldn’t resist asking, “Are you still a Taoist priest or a monk?”
Mustache looked down at his brand-new Taoist robe and smiled with four teeth, “A piece of clothing I found randomly in the crew, this one looks best, don’t mind it.”
Xu Jian: “……”
If Xu Jian thought that Mustache is an expert with some real skills, then in his heart, this person is an unscrupulous swindler.
Especially a low-level one, the kind that can’t even lie and pretend, and can be debunked at a glance.
Xu Jian felt that his heart has been blinded by lard just now, and he tried anything in a hurry,lit. to turn to any doctor one can find when critically ill (idiom); to try anything or anyone in a crisis and actually believed what an irrelevant person on the side of the road said.
Thinking of this, Xu Jian glanced at Mustache speechlessly, gave him an extremely perfunctory smile, then pulled Qin Chen beside him and left.
When passing by Mustache, Xu Jian quickly dropped a sentence, “Goodbye, Master. Take care, Master.”
Qin Chen let Xu Jian pull him away, but kept his eyes on Mustache, just to see his expression unchanged and even had a smiling expression, without any regret and anxiety that the fool is about to leave.
Qin Chen secretly frowned, and subconsciously slowed down his pace.
As he walked, he found that Qin Chen was no longer leaving. Puzzled, Xu Jian turned his head. Before he could ask Qin Chen what happened, the Mustache they have left in place suddenly drawled, “Kid, your tail isn’t well hidden.”
Xu Jian’s movement abruptly stopped, the hand that pulled Qin Chen’s arm exerted a strong force, and he subconsciously turned his head to look behind him.
Qin Chen’s pupils shrank slightly, quickly turned his head to look behind Xu Jian. It was empty and there was no cat’s tail.
The two looked at each other and they both saw surprise in each other’s eyes. Then, they turned their heads at the same time and turned to rigidly stare at Mustache whom they turned their backs at.
Under the gazes of the two, Mustache slowly turned around, with the expression of being beaten just now still hanging on his face. He looked at Xu Jian for two seconds, and finally tilted his head slightly and said with a smile, “I saw your tail.”
Xu Jian’s pupils quaked. He looked at the smiling Mustache and suddenly shivered.
This fake Taoist priest, can actually see his tail?
Between the silence, Qin Chen looked at Mustache and suddenly said, “How can I give you one million?”
However, Mustache shook his head and held out two fingers, “One million is the price earlier, and this is now the amount.”
Xu Jian’s temples jumped, he almost suffered a heart attack. “Two million?”
The starting price of this sitting is too much. Does the price bureau really don’t care about it?
Xu Jian suddenly felt that he was doing well now. If he lacks Yang then he lacks Yang. What can two million do?
Compared to Xu Jian, whose heart was already dripping blood before he gave the money, Qin Chen was very quick and nodded, “Okay.”
Xu Jian suddenly turned his head to look at Qin Chen. He couldn’t help but pull his sleeve, looked a little embarrassed, and lowered his voice, “I don’t have that much money…”
He took all the money to invest in buying houses.
Qin Chen calmly said, “I have.”
After hearing Qin Chen’s words, Mustache nodded in satisfaction, and then looked at Xu Jian with disgust, “Look at others, then look at you. Why are people with several houses so stingy?”
Xu Jian: “???”
Two million isn’t two hundred, is this a matter of whether I’m stingy or not?
Also, why do you know my family background!
Now that the price has been negotiated, Mustache smiled so much that he couldn’t see his teeth. He walked up to the two and said to them, “Seeing that you’re sincere and can’t get out so much money on you, I’ll be a good guy and allow you to pay the deposit first and then settle the balance later.”
After saying this, without waiting for Qin Chen and Xu Jian to answer, Mustache put the payment code on his phone in front of them, “The deposit is two yuan, no credit, thank you for your patronage.”
Xu Jian: “?”
Seeing that Mustache looked serious and didn’t seem to be joking, a voice suddenly sounded in Xu Jian’s mind:
You can’t afford to lose two yuan, you can’t afford to be fooled, you can’t buy anything…
Just as the horn in Xu Jian’s mind was shouting, Mustache suddenly looked at him, “Indeed, you can’t buy anything with two yuan, but you can pay a deposit.”
Xu Jian was stunned, looking at Mustache with a look of horror, “You actually know what’s in my mind?”
Qin Chen turned his head when he heard the words, “What were you thinking just now?”
Mustache cheerfully said, “When you come out to mix, you must have the ability to look after the family a bit.”
Xu Jian’s felt creeped out in his heart, feeling that Mustache isn’t human.
As if it was for fun, he paid two yuan to Mustache who was digging something in his wide sleeve.
Xu Jian thought he would scoop out a silk brocade bag, but he lowered his head and pulled it out for a long time. Finally, he took out a piece of paper and handed it to him. “Yeah, the solution is written on it.”
Looking at the thing in Mustache’s hand, Xu Jian fell into silence.
This is clearly torn off from a corner from an old newspaper, right? Two million! Even a clean A4 paper isn’t worth having?!
The fortune-telling industry is indeed a windfall profit!
Seeing Xu Jian not receiving it, Qin Chen took the initiative to reach out. He heard Mustache say when he was about to open it, “Wait until after I leave to see.”
After speaking, without waiting for Qin Chen and Xu Jian to react, Mustache picked up his bamboo pole and slipped away. When he brushed past, he said to Xu Jian with a low laugh, “Your fur color is pretty good-looking.”
Xu Jian: “……”
As a person who was complimented for his good-looking fur color, Xu Jian didn’t feel happy but felt a little cold in the back.
Two seconds later, Xu Jian slowly reacted, “No, how will the balance be settled?”
As a result, when Xu Jian and Qin Chen turned around, they found that there was no one behind them, and there was no figure of Mustache.
Mustache praised Xu Jian’s fur color, but that was only a few seconds ago. In such a short period of time, it’s normal that he can’t even take ten steps.
Looking at the empty street, Xu Jian was dumbfounded. He slowly turned his head and asked Qin Chen, “This speed… He is really not a human being, right?”
Qin Chen frowned and also felt that Mustache came from an unusual origin. But he couldn’t care about anything else now and handed the old newspaper to Xu Jian. “Open it and see what it says.”
Xu Jian’s hand was still a little unstable when he took the newspaper. After believing that Mustache wasn’t a swindler but a real expert, his heart “thump thump thump” beating wildly—
There is a way to solve his problem of becoming a cat when he is human…
After glancing at Qin Chen, Xu Jian took a deep breath and opened the newspaper that had been folded several times, with excited anticipation and awe, with words written on it in red pen.
After clearly seeing what was written in the newspaper, Xu Jian’s expression went blank for a moment, his complexion turned from white to red and finally became ashen.
Seeing his reaction, Qin Chen felt a chill in his heart — Don’t tell me it isn’t easy to solve?
Curious about what was written, Qin Chen leaned over to read the newspaper in Xu Jian’s hand. And a few seconds later, he was also stunned.
On the newspaper, it was written in red pen:
[I already said lack of Yang and still don’t know how to solve it? Are you guys stupid? Watch more TV and learn when you have time!
If your sexual orientation is female, won’t you pluck the Yin to nurture the Yang?T/N: yeah, that kind of adult activity; like dual cultivation
If the orientation is male, won’t you cross the Yang? Won’t you let your boyfriend kiss you ten or eight times a day? Won’t you sleep together if there’s nothing to do?
Already a 24-year-old person yet don’t understand this? How promising. I’m ashamed for you. Even more so, how dare you spend two million yuan to let me teach you? Two yuan will be your IQ tax.
A gentle reminder: Although the Yang is very important, young people should also pay attention to moderation, and be careful that people will die of exhaustion.
The last thing I want to say is, looking at you guys like that, it’s estimated that you can’t use plucking the yin to nurture the yang, I can only say one sentence — Pay attention to the waist^-^.]
Qin Chen: “……”
You can feel between the lines that the person who wrote this deserves a beating, especially the last smiley face.
Xu Jian’s hand holding the newspaper turned pale because of the exertion of his knuckles, his face turned red and white for a while, and finally, he held back for a while before choking out a word between his teeth, “Liar!”
Who said that you can’t afford to lose two yuan? Stand up and be beaten!
What kind of rotten idea is this! Even crossing the Yang Qi…
Xu Jian was so hot that he felt hot while he was gripping the newspaper, and he somehow didn’t dare to look at Qin Chen.
Xu Jian felt that Mustache wasn’t only a huckster but also a very immodest huckster. Look at what mess he has written!
Unlike the resentful Xu Jian, Qin Chen read all his thoughts in the newspaper, “I don’t think he looks like a swindler, he makes sense.”
Xu Jian suddenly looked up at him, “Huh? What makes sense?”
Do young people should pay attention to moderation or cross the Yang Qi make sense?
Looking at Xu Jian, Qin Chen analyzed with him seriously.
“He can see that you have a tail, know about your details, and disappear in a blink of an eye. Although it’s very mysterious, you also know in your heart that he isn’t a swindler. If he really is, it’s impossible to cheat you for only two yuan. There is no need.”
After listening to Qin Chen’s words, Xu Jian was silent for two seconds and finally said woodenly, “I understand all the reasoning, but… Can you not smile so happily?”
Mr. Qin, I’m so miserable but the corners of your mouth are almost going to the sky!
Qin Chen obediently pressed the corners of his upturned mouth without success, and then said to Xu Jian with little sincerity, “Sorry, it won’t listen to me now.”
Staring at the cocked corners of Qin Chen’s mouth and the smile in his eyes, Xu Jian’s old face blushed inexplicably and lowered his head in disguise. The words “pay attention to the waist” on the back of the newspaper intruded into his eyes again.
Thinking of why he should pay attention to his waist and the process of paying attention to it, Xu Jian choked on his throat, and he inadvertently choked on his own saliva and coughed while covering his mouth.
Qin Chen raised his hand to pat Xu Jian’s back and gave a low laugh, “It’s a good thing to know the solution, but you don’t have to be so excited.”
Xu Jian coughed even harder at his words—
Was he excited? He was obviously angry!
The author has something to say:
Jian Cat: I’m not excited nor do I look forward to it! [blushing]
Qin poop scooping officer: Good good, you’re not. I’m excited and looking forward to it [undressing]
An invisible Maserati drove by quickly and pressed everyone’s jio.
The gong’s biggest assist in this text, Mustache entered the scene for two days and successfully completed his mission and is now going offline hhhh[mist]
