“Slow down, I also like these warriors!”

Just as Han finished speaking, he ignored all the surprised looks that people were giving him and walked towards those soldiers, gently tapping the witch warrior leader on the shoulder. With a smile he said, ”If we are talking about business, it should be fair competition. If I were to buy these men, how much would it cost?”

Nan Duo, one of Fantasy Neptune’s trusted advisers sneered:” I am afraid it cannot be done with money. Wu Dengfeng is Fantasy Neptune’s VIP guest, so these warriors are a gift to Mr. Wu.”

Han shocked, looked at the dark faced man with heavy eyebrows and said, “So these men belong to Mr.Wu already?”

“That’s right.” Nan Duo nodded.

“Fair enough.” Han politely escaped, “Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to discuss business with Mr. Wu.”

Nan Duo looked very troubled. He never thought Han would have left and gone directly to Wu Dengfeng to buy these slaves. As the situation changed, now it was very hard for him to get involved again.

Wu Dengfeng thought Han was a very interesting individual and smiled, “You sure are clever, but if you want to take these men from me, I am afraid you need a convincing reason.”

Han said, ”I have heard about the legendary forging master Wu a long time ago, I happen to have a piece of unique metal with me. Would Mr. Wu be interested?”

“Metal? Let me have a look.” Since Wu Dengfeng was a forging master, his interests towards metals exceeded the interest he had on these men, but he warned Han. ”I have seen all kinds of metals in my lifetime, so if you are trying to fool me with low class metal, don’t say I didn’t warn you about the consequences.”


Han hands over a piece of dark reddish metal with gold embedded into Wu Dengfeng’s hands. This was the Fire Drake Forging Gold. Han forced the Fire Drake to transform and slaughtered it to acquire such a rare metal.

Wu Dengfeng was shocked. He grabbed the Fire Drake Forging Gold into his hands and took a careful inspection of it and let out a deep breath, “This is definitely a type of metal that I have never seen before, its spectacular! Where did you get this?”

Han did not speak, but took a glance around. Wu Dengfeng understood his intentions.

Wu Dengfeng dragged Han closer and insisted, “This is not the right place to talk, follow me!”

Without any explanations, Wu Dengfeng took Han back to his hotel. To welcome such a special and important guest, the glamorous hotel was completely shut down to outsiders. The only people living in this monumental facility were Wu Dengfeng and his men.

Wu Dengfeng told his apprentices to set up the metal detecting analyzer, and was busy for several hours in his room before appearing in the living room filled with joy.

Wu Dengfeng was somewhat disappointed “Your piece of metal is astonishing, but there is not enough of it.”

Han said with a smile. Wu Dengfeng was not able to identify it as Fire Drake Forging gold and obviously did not want to give it back to Han.

Han spoke politely, “Master Wu, I am going to be very straight forward with you. If you want that piece of metal, you have to give me all the men that you brought today. I will also impart to you information about the metal’s origin.”

Wu Dengfeng looked very hesitant and asked “Where? Where did you get it from!?”

“Those men.”

Wu Dengfeng waved his arm and says “Sigh, it’s only some men, they are all yours! Now, where does this metal originate from?”

Han’s first desire has been fulfilled, speaking very formally, “To tell you the truth, the reason why I came to Deliface is to find the origin of this metal.”

Wu Dengfeng asked with curiosity, “How so? Are you saying this metal originates from Deliface?”

Han mysteriously speaking, “This is a long story, it dates all the way back to my grandfather’s generation.”

The first rule of being a profiteer; In order to ask for an outrageous price, a good quality product was not enough, there must be a shocking story that people can pass on for centuries.

A chair was worth 100.

A chair made from yellow rosewood can sell for 1,000.

A yellow rosewood chair sat on by the queen is now worth 10,000.

Suppose not only is this chair made from yellow rosewood, sat on by the queen, and the queen was very naughty. She had an intimate relationship with the servant, got pregnant with an infant, and the infant was then choked to death on this chair.

Now that there is a cruel but shocking story behind this chair, it becomes priceless.

Even though Han was not a profiteer himself, but he fully understood the mechanisms behind such practices. So he made up a story of how his grandfather put in extensive efforts and dedication into finding this piece of metal, causing the family to be chased down over the past decades. Han elaborated on the suffering his “family” endured over the years, and finally discovering that the origin was on Deliface in the # 13 constellation.

When he has finally tracked down this location, he found that # 13 constellation was a restricted area, and no one was allowed to enter,

This story had so many turning points it left Wu Dengfeng constantly in shock, and even a bit confused.

To say Han’s story was flawless, that’s not true, but the cleverness was that # 13 constellation was the witch’s holy realm, a restricted area, and it was famously known as the source of all kinds of strange phenomenon. This was why Wu Dengfeng believed the story and thought it was possible.

Wu Dengfeng let out a deep breath, “So that is what happened. It seems like your family has been trying to locate this metal for hundreds of years now, and after overcoming all those obstacles, it must have been really tough.”

Inquiring further details on the metal, Wu Dengfeng says “Coincidentally, Fantasy Neptune has invited me to # 13 constellation to forge him a new weapon, before the witch died, did he tell you the exact location of where to find this metal? #13 constellation is not a small place, it is an entire planet.”

“He did mention it.”


Han shook his head in silence.

Wu Dengfeng quickly realized and added, “That was really dumb of me. How can you tell me so easily, that is a secret your family has been searching for hundreds of years.”

Han rolled his eyes and whispers, “Actually, I can tell you.”

Wu Dengfeng speaking with confidence, “Oh? If you tell me the exact location of this metal, I will think of a way to mine it!”

Han said, “Master Wu, I trust you, but in the end, this is still a business.”

After bursting out in laughter, Wu Dengfeng lowered his voice and said, “You are absolutely right. Once its done, you can take 30% of the metal.”

Han was silent.


Han frowned a little and remained silent.

Clenching his teeth, Wu Dengfeng says “You know what, since fate has brought us together, my brother, I will split it in half with you! Is that good enough for you?”

“Deal.” Han extended his right arm with a smile, “But I also need to go to # 13 constellation, to witness the mining of such precious and spectacular metal. Or else, I won’t tell you the location even if you kill me.”

Wu Dengfeng surprised, standing up and walking across the living room back and forth.

Finally, his desire for the Fire Drake Forging Gold got the better of him and Wu Dengfeng conceded, “It can be done, but however, you have to follow my instructions.”

“No problem.” As Han nods.

Deliface constellation, # 1 constellation, Fantasy Neptune’s castle.

Nan Duo was reporting Wu Dengfeng’s newest demands to Fantasy Neptune.

Fantasy Neptune with a deep cold voice, “Wu wants to take a stranger into the holy realm?”

Nan Duo replies, “Yes, he said he met a new human. Wu claimed that he is very talented in forging, and to forge a new weapon for you, this man must be his assistant.”

Fantasy Neptune sneered, “What do you think?”

“Excuses! Absurd excuses!” Nan Duo complaining in anger, “A stranger he just met can be Wu Dengfeng’s assistant? They are treating us like fools, it is obvious that he wants to bring Han for some reason we don’t know about, we should refuse him!”

Fantasy Neptune shaking his head, “No, grant him permission.”

“My lord! If you agree to his terms, I am afraid Wu Dengfeng will push even further.”

“He can go right ahead! Right now, we are in need of him, so we must not upset Wu Dengfeng or else it will ruin my big plans. Go, do as I say, regardless of how outrageous Wu Dengfeng’s demands are, grant him permission. As long as he can do what I asked, pff!”

Nan Duo’s eyes suddenly brightened up and whispers, “After his work is finished, we get rid of them both?”

Fantasy Neptune stated without a doubt, “This stays between you and I. Now go, make this Mr.Wu satisfied.”
