Chapter 267 Sending Gifts and Registering
Zhou Xingwen opened up the bag happily to reveal a gift box. The entire gift box was exuded cold air. He opened it carefully to unveil a small bowl, placed amidst large blocks of ice and filled with black pearl-like items.
As Zhou Xingwen smiled and looked at the curious Little Ru, he introduced it proudly,
"This is the caviar made using the eggs of Ice Shuttle Sturgeons, a type of ferocious fish found in the Western Sea.
"The Ice Shuttle Sturgeon is a precious fish from the Western Sea, and in the entire Western Sea, there are only two places that supply this. The highest quality caviar must be made from the eggs extracted from Ice Shuttle Sturgeons which weighed at least 20 jin or more. Each year, only about 30 jin of such caviar is produced.
"If you don't have strong connections, there's no way that you'll be able to get your hands on it."
Each egg appeared round and full. Exuding a faint golden glow, they looked just like small black pearls.
Little Ru asked curiously, "How do you eat this stuff?"
Zhou Xingwen closed the box, smiled, and said, "You can have it together with seafood, noodles, or even have it with bread as a snack. The great texture of the Ice Shuttle Sturgeon's caviar makes it the king of all caviar. It's cooling and refreshing, without any fishy stench. With an incomparably delicious taste, it is a delicacy of the human world."
As he said this, he gulped unconsciously and then went on to say, "And the Ice Shuttle Sturgeon itself is a level 19 ferocious beast. If you eat its caviar, it'll moisturize your skin, increase the defensive abilities of your skin's surface and its ability to fight against cold and heat. It's said that after eating the Ice Shuttle Sturgeon's caviar, you'll never have wrinkles in your entire life."
Hearing this, Little Ru's eyes immediately lit up. She stared at the caviar and asked, "Then how much is this Ice Shuttle Sturgeon's caviar?"
Zhou Xingwen looked at Little Ru. He would usually not give a hoot about a maid like her, however, he felt she looked quite pretty with her innocent-looking face and great figure. Additionally, she had a well-rounded bosom which could not be concealed by her maid uniform. Any man who saw her would probably have wicked thoughts.
In particular, seeing her standing together with Fang Xingjian... Zhou Xingwen was not sure if Fang Xingjian was interested in her. Therefore, he spoke unconsciously in a polite tone, "This isn't a matter of money. Of course, if you want to talk about the price, the 500 grams here should cost about one thousand gold."
When Little Ru heard the price for the Ice Shuttle Sturgeon's caviar, she drew in a deep breath. That sum of money would allow a person to purchase one of the best manors at the exterior of the Great Western City.
However, considering how it came from a level 19 ferocious beast and had the ability to strengthen one's attributes and improve one's skin conditions, she felt the price was not unexpected.
However, to her, it was still much too expensive.
However, Fang Xingjian did not stand on ceremony and accepted the Ice Shuttle Sturgeon's caviar. Since Zhou Xingwen had gone to so much trouble and had been so attentive to where Fang Xingjian went and what he liked... even to the extent of specially searching for good ingredients for food... Zhou Xingwen was considered to be very sincere.
Therefore, Fang Xingjian smiled slightly and said, "The Ice Shuttle Sturgeon's caviar is not bad. Let's see... we can reduce the one million gold by one thousand."
Inwardly, Zhou Xingwen coughed up some blood. He felt that this Fang Xingjian was a truly stingy person who was unwilling to spare even the smallest amount of money.
Zhou Xingwen smiled helplessly and changed the topic, asking, "Xingjian, why have you come to the Sword Arts Department?"
Little Ru was still staring at that extremely valuable Ice Shuttle Sturgeon's caviar, but when she heard Zhou Xingwen's question, she also turned to look at Fang Xingjian.
Looking at Fang Xingjian now, she felt that he seemed to appear even more handsome than before. His great power, mysterious disposition, and the food he ate which easily cost a fortune... all of these encompassed the Fang Xingjian in Little Ru's eyes with a layer of light.
Fang Xingjian walked on as he said, "I've created a set of sword technique and am here to register it."
Hearing that, Zhou Xingwen's eyes lit up and he asked, "What sword technique is that?"
"I call it the Rebirth Sword Technique. It's a Nurturing sword technique."
"Oh, Nurturing sword technique..." A hint of disparage flashed past Zhou Xingwen's eyes. "If it's a Killing sword technique that has a good effect, then there might be a market for it."
"But recently, the duplication of Nurturing sword techniques has been too high, and it's usually sufficient for an ordinary person to practice about five to six sets of them. No one would continue picking up Nurturing sword techniques of which the effects are replicated for nothing."
Fang Xingjian appeared to have understood the disparage in Zhou Xingwen's eyes. He merely took the caviar and left. His Nurturing sword technique was not something which ordinary people could to understand.
Zhou Xingwen gave it some thought and followed after him. It was a good chance to build up a good relationship with Fang Xingjian.
The matter with the Sacred Land involved hundreds of thousands of gold and was something that tugged at his heart. Once the deal was closed, even if he were to get a 3% commission, it would bring him tens of thousands of gold.
Moreover, Wang Tiangang had promised Zhou Xingwen that once he had gotten his hands on the rights to this piece of Sacred Land with the highest level of density, he would lend it to Zhou Xingwen to use for a period of time. This made the deal even better.
Thinking of the great future awaiting him, Zhou Xingwen continued to talk as he followed Fang Xingjian to the office for registering his sword technique.
An old man was sitting in the chair, dozing off. Fang Xingjian knocked on the door and said, "I want to register a new sword technique."
The old man rubbed his eyes, threw a glance at Fang Xingjian and asked, "New sword technique? Wait a while, the person who checks the techniques is not here. I'll call him over."
Fang Xingjian nodded and sat down to wait. Zhou Xingwen could not help but ask, "Xingjian, have you brought the manual? Why don't you let me have a look? Maybe I'll be able to gain some enlightenment as well."
Although Zhou Xingwen had taken up bare-handed martial arts, having reached the level of Conferred Knights, looking at Nurturing techniques of other martial styles was of no problem to him at all.
Fang Xingjian tossed the manual to Zhou Xingwen, who caught it and started looking through it.
However, upon one look, his feelings of disparage grew even stronger. It was because he noticed that this Rebirth Sword Technique was simply a great hodgepodge, throwing in everything that Nurturing techniques could cover.
To him, this was merely a sword technique which combined many pieces of different sword techniques together as one. By randomly piecing all these different things together, it would not be strange if there were repercussions.
Zhou Xingwen did not finish reading and returned it to Fang Xingjian with a smile. Zhou Xingwen then said, "Not bad, Xingjian. You must have taken references from quite a number of Nurturing techniques."
Fang Xingjian nodded and said, "I've combined the fortes of various techniques. The effect is very good. It far surpasses that of ordinary Nurturing sword techniques."
Although Fang Xingjian was speaking the truth, to Zhou Xingwen, it seemed like Fang Xingjian was just boasting shamelessly. However, he could not retort openly and just smiled, without saying a word. He would just wait for the teacher, who would be checking through the manual, to criticize Fang Xingjian angrily.
About half an hour later, a middle-aged man, with golden beard and hair as well as the grandeur of a lion, walked out. He looked at Fang Xingjian and asked, "You're the one who wants to register a new technique?"
The man who looked like a lion said, "My name is Leon. I'm Master Hoppes' disciple. Have you brought the manual? Let me take a look at it first. If there's no problem, I'll find a time to submit it for you."
Fang Xingjian had answered very casually. However, Zhou Xingwen, who was by Fang Xingjian's side, was already standing up and bowing politely.
It was because the other party was a senior student in the Sword Arts Department, Leon, who was ranked seventh in the academy. He was a disciple to Hoppes, who had taught Fang Xingjian the Ninety Thousand Godly Demon Flash. Leon had spent many years in Hoppes' sword arts team, and both his abilities and theories were extremely strong.
Therefore, Fang Xingjian passed the manual to him, and Leon started to flip through it casually.
