Big thanks for the support!
It was only then did Little Ke realized that the master of the house was
standing at the doorway. She was momentarily shocked, then she quickly
kneeled in salute before replying: “These treasures were won by the
Young Master when he went out to gamble earlier.”
“He won? He really won?” Jun Zhan Tian’s voice became low, his mind
filled with delight and surprise. If there were no one around, he would
probably have shouted out. However, above the feelings of delight and
surprise, there was suspicion within Grandpa Jun’s mind. When did this
brat begin to learn to win money? From what I remember, he had never won
anything since the day he learnt how to gamble… If it was not for
Grandpa Jun limiting his pocket money, by now the entire Jun Residence
would probably have been gambled away by Jun Moxie. But now, not only did
he won, he actually won these kinds of high-grade stuff…
“It is true, these treasures were won by the Young Master. No matter
how much gall this maid have, I would never dare to lie to House Master.
In addition, the Young Master also brought back three million liangs in
silver bills,” Little Ke answered without hesitation. “From what
I’ve heard, these were all won from Young Master Li and Young Master
Meng. When the Young Master returned, he placed the treasure here for me
to arrange before going to the library building to read books.”
Little Ke was filled with pride, because the Young Master had never won
anything before. But this time, Jun Xie had actually won so much. In the
little girl’s heart, her young master had suddenly become more capable.
Even though she still feared the Young Master, she felt that the Young
Master of today was different. At the very least, he was no longer that
“That brat went to the library building again?” At this moment,
Grandpa Jun’s feelings of joy exceeded that of his surprise. Not having
to worry about how to clean up his grandson’s mess was one thing,
hearing Little Ke saying where his grandson had gone to was another. He
stared ahead blankly, looking as though he was unable to handle this
incoming emotion. With trembling hands, he reached up to his forehead to
ensure that he was not having a fever. After that, he checked his sense
of hearing to ensure that he did not hear anything wrong. It was only
after that did he recover himself.
“Oh, when he return later, tell him to come find me,” After saying
that, Grandpa Jun brought the housekeeper Pang out together, leaving the
little Lolita counting over and over again, her eyes gleaming with
silver. “These three accompaniment jades can be sold for at least one
hundred thousand liangs, that bead and gemstone can be sold for at least
a hundred and fifty thousand liangs… and that… at least… added with
these silver bills… wow…”
“Old Pang, what do you think?” Jun Zhan Tian who was walking back was
unable to figure it out. The actions of his grandson for the past month
had completely baffled him. What was he planning? What was he doing?
“This old servant do not know. However, the Young Master’s current
actions are definitely good,” Old Pang also seemed confused.
Nonetheless, not having to help clean up Jun Moxie’s mess can
definitely be considered a good thing.
“If he is really interested in reading, what do you think about me
sending him to Wenxing Institute of Knowledge?” Grandpa Jun asked on a
whim, a fantasy like yearning on his face. Wenxing Institute of Knowledge
is Tianxiang Kingdom’s leading place of learning for all scholars.
Within it, the number of teachers and students combined are less than a
thousand. This number is simply too small compared to the several hundred
millions of Tianxiang Kingdom’s population. This meant that only those
who were of worth, who possessed a high level of talent, would have the
possibility and qualifications to enter this place to learn. As long as
these students graduate, the kingdom would often employ them! However,
even those infamous geniuses would be forced to undergo a very difficult
phase of learning in order to graduate from this place!
It could be said that Wenxing Institute of Knowledge is the golden road
Regardless of who or what your background may be, not even a prince or
princess can be allowed to enter Wenxing Institute of Knowledge if they
do not possess genuine talent!
For Grandpa Jun to actually consider sending Jun Xie to Wenxing Institute
of Knowledge, it seemed that he had already believed that Jun Xie had
turned over a new leaf.
“…it would probably be very difficult,” Based on Jun Moxie’s
abilities, how was he someone that can enter Wenxing Institute of
Knowledge? All those that have been accepted were those that had
laboriously studied for tens of years. They who were qualified were the
most illustrious and infamous amongst geniuses. How can that grandson of
yours who had remained ignorant for sixteen years and had only started
reading for a month be qualified?
Naturally, Old Pang was unable to be straightforward regarding this
matter. He subtly continued: “Wenxing Institute of Knowledge is much
too pedantic for this old man. But if Senior Master were to personally go
and end up suffering a setback… Sigh! I humbly believe… I humbly
believe that we should take this slowly. Let’s observe… observe for a
“Alas! How unfortunate that this brat’s level of Xuan Qi cultivation
is simply too mediocre. It would be for the best if he could enter the
Divine Xuan Institute of War. For generations, our Jun Family had always
become generals, fighting through the battlefield! If our family were to
actually produce a pedantic man, then our family will really become
unremarkable,” Jun Zhan Tian himself realized that this matter was not
easy to handle. Back when the Second Prince was entering the Wenxing
Institute of Knowledge, the Emperor himself had to endure Grandpa Jun’s
anger before sending the prince in. Grandpa Jun had always been at odds
with the scholars, making this even harder.
Not to mention, Moxie’s personality…
“Old Pang, what do you think? What kind of arrangement should I make
for Moxie?” Grandpa Jun sighed continuously. “Sending him to study?
This brat is certainly not made of that material. Sending him into the
military? This bastard does not have even the slightest talent. He cannot
endure pain, and cannot endure training. Send him to do business? … …
I fear that he would lose money to the point where he cannot even pay for
my coffin! … Do I really have to just leave him as a useless freeloader
waiting for death’s call?”
Speaking of this subject, Old Pang became frustrated and tried to comfort
Grandpa Jun, “The Young Master has started maturing lately. He may very
well be trying hard to reach the top himself, turning over a new leaf…
ah, the Young Master is still very young, I believe that it is still not
“This type of hypocritical comfort is what I hate the most! You
actually learned to do this as well!” Jun Zhan Tian frowned, and
rebuked in a vexed manner. “Old Pang, this is not like you at all! Look
at you! Where is the Pang Lie who had fought singlehandedly against tens
of thousands of enemies on the battlefield back then?”
Old Pang smiled bitterly: It is not as if I wanted to say that. But, what
else can I say other than that? Am I supposed to say, each grandson
brings with them a blessing. But you can forget about your grandson.
Everyone knows that your grandson is a smear on the wall that cannot be
developed in any way at all. No matter how much you worry, no matter how
much you prepare a path for him, would he not end up ruining everything
by himself? Was I really supposed to say that? I might as well tell you
to decapitate me!
“There is one method that can protect the Young Master. That way,
Senior Master will not need to worry about the Young Master,” Old Pang
said as he suddenly recalled something.
“What method? Quick, tell me!” Jun Zhan Tian was surprised; he had
only thought of blowing off some steam today. He did not expect Old Pang
to actually have a way!
“This method is actually somewhat difficult to implement,” Old Pang
was about to say it, but then began to hesitate: “The method is for us
to buy a young Xuan Beast that is at least of the Eighth level or above.
After that, we can train it at all cost…”
“Stop! Stop! Stop!” Jun Zhan Tian forcefully interrupted Old Pang’s
words. “Old Pang, are you sleep talking now? Do you actually think this
kind of method is possible?”
Old Pang thought about it with his eyes staring forward, then sadly
“Since you know it is impossible, then why are you talking about
it?!” Jun Zhan Tian gave out a muffled sigh.
Xuan Beasts, they are a special life form in the Xuan Xuan Continent. Any
one of the high-levelled Xuan Beast will possess extremely powerful
strength. It is said that any Eighth level Xuan Beast could fight evenly
with a Sky Xuan expert! As for the Ninth level Xuan Beast, they are no
less powerful compared to the Supreme God Xuan expert!
However, even the Xuan Beasts have their own form of hierarchy, much like
the humans. Their ranks are even more stringent in comparison to humans.
For human experts who grasped certain special skills, it was possible for
them to challenge and defeat opponents whose Xuan Qi cultivation was
higher than them. But this was not possible when fighting against Xuan
Xuan Beasts of the fourth level and below can only be considered the same
as wild animals. At best, they may perhaps have slightly more destructive
power when compared to normal animals. Only from the fifth level onwards
will the Xuan Beasts possess some special ability. However, the Xuan
Beasts of the sixth and seventh level are of not much use, even more so
when they are young. Additionally, once the Xuan Beast reaches adulthood,
it can no longer be tamed. Some Xuan Beasts require several decades to
reach adulthood, others up to a hundred years! Waiting so long for a cub
to mature, what was the point? Not to mention, the strength of the sixth
level Xuan Beast can at best only be on par with the Silver level Xuan Qi
expert. Therefore, the price for this level of Xuan Beast is not high,
and is relatively easy to find.
However, from the seventh level onwards, the situation becomes different!
Xuan Beasts of the seventh level onwards possesses the intrinsic ability
to breakthrough. These Xuan Beasts could be said to rival humans in terms
of wisdom. Besides having innate skills, they also have a special
ability. It is also due to this ability that the development process of
these cubs becomes exceptionally difficult!
