Ye Lang nodded his head and said: â€œYep, itâ€™s all the same, I donâ€™t
know where Iâ€™m supposed to go anyways!â€
â€œThen come with us. Right now, we just happen to be going to the
Vermillion Bird Empireâ€™s Fire Dragon City.â€ The big sister replied.
If Ye Lanyu and company were here right now, they would definitely stop
Ye Lang from going off with strangers and getting kidnapped.
However, they were all absent, so Ye Lang very simply nodded and said:
â€œOkay, this way is best!â€
Just like this, Ye Lang was â€œkidnappedâ€ by this unfamiliar big
When Ye Lang followed the big sister to an inn where several drunkards
were drinking wine, they suddenly leaped over and looked at Ye Lang like
he was a fat lamb being brought to the slaughter and used a weird voice
â€œSister Mandy, is this the new boss?â€
These circumstances would very much cause people to think of one thing,
this was a ploy!
â€œYou guys- you guys wouldnâ€™t be bad people would you! If you want
money you can have it, but nothing else is up for grabs!â€ Ye Lang
directly spouted out what was within his heart.
â€œâ€¦â€œ The big sister, that is to say sister Mandy, fell silent, and
then with a dark expression, she started yelling at the drunkards: â€œYou
bastards, donâ€™t start drinking just because you have nothing to do, you
have work to do! Take peopleâ€™s money, help fix peopleâ€™s problems!
Also, remember, this is a little brother I just met. Heâ€™s traveling
with us to the Fire Dragon city, not some boss!â€
â€œSorry to have shown you this, little brother, my subordinates are all
these kinds of people, donâ€™t misunderstand, theyâ€™re all
mercenaries!â€ Sister Mandy hurriedly explained to Ye Lang. She had lost
a lot of face.
â€œAh, heâ€™s not, judging by his clothes, heâ€™s dressed like the prince
of a noble family. How is he not a new boss you found while looking for
extra incomeâ€¦ *cough cough* right, we will go protect the bossâ€¦â€
Those people noticed that sister Mandyâ€™s eyes were starting to burn
with anger and immediately greased up their feet and ran away.
â€œOh so you were all mercenaries, this is the best, I have people to
protect me. When everything ends, I will definitely reward you.â€ Ye
Lang understood now. So this big sister is in the mercenary business and
right now she just happens to be going to the Fire Dragon city on
â€œDonâ€™t listen to their blind talk, youâ€™re just coming along for the
ride, you donâ€™t need to pay!â€ Sister Mandy hurriedly explained. She
didnâ€™t want Ye Lang to misunderstand her intentions as impure.
Towards words like these, Ye Langâ€™s reply, Iâ€™m sure many people can
â€œNo, if I can spend money, I definitely will. I am a prodigal son;
Donâ€™t worry about saving me money.â€ Ye Lang, as expected, didnâ€™t
let down everyone and continued to follow his goal of being prodigal.
â€œâ€¦â€ Sister Mandy had seen many prodigal sons before, but this was
her first time seeing one so confident.
â€œItâ€™s decided! Boss, give me the best room in the houseâ€¦ What?
Somebodyâ€™s already living in it? Tell him to give it to me, sir, I have
lots of money!â€ Ye Lang appeared to be trying to spend all the money in
his pocket until he only had pocket lint left.
He already had no relation to the current Ye family, as long as he spent
all the money on his person, he would reach rock bottom. That way he
could fulfill his greatest wish: Waste away an entire family fortune,
walk away with hands empty!
â€œâ€¦â€ Sister Mandy suddenly asked herself why she had found this
youngster so likable. At this time, he was clearly doing very despicable
Under Ye Langâ€™s prodigal assault, the tenant of the number one room
gave in and did so happily because he had benefitted more than he could
â€œBoss, bring a bowl of shark fin soup to rinse my mouth withâ€¦â€ This
was something Ye Lang would say at the 3 meals of the day, and every time
he would really use shark fin soup to rinse his mouth and then place it
to the side and not eat it.
â€œSister Mandy, where did you find this kind of rich young master, does
he have a grudge against money?â€ Looking at these events, the
mercenaries started feeling apprehensive.
â€œHas a grudge? Thatâ€™s not it, it should be said he doesnâ€™t care
about money at all. Heâ€™s treating it like toilet paper!â€ Another
mercenary expressed it in vulgar terms.
â€œRight, big sis Mandy, you have to take a big payment from him. Heâ€™s
going to spend it all anyways if you donâ€™t take it, rather than let
other people take his money, why donâ€™t we take it!â€

â€œStop blabbering, we are mercenaries, the most important thing is to
abide by the terms of contract. Since I said we wonâ€™t take his money,
we wonâ€™t!â€ Sister Mandy very firmly said. As a mercenary, she had a
mercenaryâ€™s sense of ethics. Although she only led a little known small
mercenary group, she still had principles.
But in reality, in her heart she was also feeling regretful. Why had she
said those words at that time, if she hadnâ€™t, she couldâ€™ve earned a
lot of money. It looked like it would definitely be even more than her
payment for the current job.
â€œAi, what a shame, truly, what a shameâ€¦â€ A group of people sighed
and shook their heads making a magnificent spectacle.
â€œIt canâ€™t be counted as a shame, at least throughout the journey, our
food, clothing and other supplies will be of the highest quality,
thatâ€™s comfortable enough!â€ Sister Mandy said.
â€œThatâ€™s true, this rich young master already bought it all, and
itâ€™s all the best quality too.â€ Everyone nodded and agreed.
â€œThatâ€™s the way! As people, you have to learn to be satisfied!â€
Sister Mandy rebuked them.
â€œSister Mandy, youâ€™re satisfied, you got to eat the delicacies he
brought, but we didnâ€™t!â€ Among the crowd, one gourmand ground his
teeth and complained. It seemed he was unhappy that he didnâ€™t get to
eat what Ye Lang brought.
Everyone here knew that even though Ye Lang ordered from the menu, he
would never eat it himself. He would only eat the food he had brought
with him, only sister Mandy was lucky enough to eat that food, and she
did so in front of everyone else, showing off.
In the end, Ye Lang was also very â€œgenerousâ€ and gave out a little,
but this was just a little, and only amounted to a sample. It was not
enough for them to eat!
Ye Lang treasured this food greatly, as Zhen Xiaoyan had only prepared a
yearâ€™s worth for him and it wasnâ€™t enough for him aloneâ€¦
Wait a second, currently, Zhen Xiaoyan was running away with him and
didnâ€™t go to the practice. That meant that she could make more food for
him to eat later.
In reality, Ye Lang had already forgotten this point. He was still
thinking that Zhen Xiaoyan wouldnâ€™t be able to make food for him in the
near future, so he cherished the food especially and was extra stingy
Something made by others especially for him obviously had to be
cherished. These were special feelings for him and couldnâ€™t be shared
with others, or the person gave him the feelings would definitely feel
This was definitely the case, if Zhen Xiaoyan knew Ye Lang gave the food
she slaved away to make for other people to eat, she would definitely
throw a fit.
â€œIf other people want to eat your food and donâ€™t know how to cook for
themselves, I can help them cook, but you definitely canâ€™t let them eat
what I make for you!â€
That was what Zhen Xiaoyan said. In the past and in the future, as long
as she found out Ye Lang gave away her food for others to eat, she would
get angry and say words like those.
This wasnâ€™t her being stingy, but her caring about Ye Lang very much!
Like this, Ye Lang was bit late, but he could be considered to have
finally stepped on the route to Vermillion Bird Empire. As for Ye Lanyu
and company, they were also currently heading towards Vermillion Bird
Both groups were headed towards Vermillion Bird Empire, but the chance of
the two meeting was very very small. Not only was it an issue of time,
but Ye Langâ€™s destination was random.
If the two groups were to happen to meet, then it could only be called a
coincidence, a very coincidental coincidence!
