Shenluo City, inside the Jiang Familys Mansion.
Jiang Duxing stared at his father, Jiang Dongliu, with wide eyes. His face was full of disbelief.
There was a lot of information in his fathers words
Father, please hang on for a second. Allow me to digest this. Jiang Duxing wiped off his sweat. After a long while, he exclaimed in shock. You said that Hong Dali, the huge prodigal, managed to easily win 150,000,000 from one trip around the casino?
Thats right. Jiang Dongliu smiled and nodded. He did not forget to compliment Hong Dali too. Aiya, we all know what kind of place a casino is. Even if a strong warrior goes in, hell probably end up being thrown out in his underwear, right? However, that young man won 150,000,000 just like that. Thats not all. He also managed to waltz out of there without a scratch. Haha, when I first heard about this on the spacecraft, I laughed so hard my stomach hurt.
How could we not laugh? There was a saying that went: there are nine schemes in every ten gambling games. Gambling was a game filled with countless risks.
The House. What was the House? The House would only win, and never lose!
In the end, the House who could never possibly lose ended up losing money. They lost 150,000,000 in one go!
This Hong Dali, hes a true talent Jiang Duxing was completely stunned. Even though he was a Galaxy Aristocrat, he would definitely lose everything down to his underwear if he went to a casino without declaring his identity!
Theres more. Jiang Dongliu smiled and said, Didnt Hong Dali do some small trading at Star Harbor? How much capital did he invest at first? It was about 20,000,000, right?
Yep, I heard about it. Its a small sum for small trading. Jiang Duxing finally recovered from the casino news. He was curious again. How is it now? Are the stores doing well?
Well doesnt even begin to describe it. Jiang Dongliu sighed and shook his head. To be honest, Im still having a hard time believing it. His storefronts worth 20,000,000 are now worth at least seven or eight times more! If only he wished to sell them, they will easily be worth around 200,000,000.
Oh my god! Jiang Duxing was stunned again once he heard that.
An investment of 20,000,000, a return of 200,000,000. That even robbery at the Galaxy Bank would not be as profitable.
Then, Jiang Donglius next words caused Jiang Duxing to totally break down.
Jiang Dongliu said, However, the idiot did not sell his storefronts. Hes planning on investing another few million to squander for fun.
What were true prodigals? Jiang Duxing was not too sure before, but he knew now
Jiang Dongliu waited for Jiang Duxing to recover from his shock, which took a full two minutes. Jiang Dongliu then smiled and said, Oh right, speaking of which, you havent prepared Hong Dalis mansion yet, right?
Oh, yes. Jiang Duxing nodded. Ive been too swamped recently and did not have the time to. He previously went to Earth too, so things are not arranged yet.
Then leave them be for now. Jiang Dongliu casually waved his hands and said, The advancement assessment is in a few days. Lets see how far he goes. The future is uncertain on this child. To be honest, Im looking forward to finding out.
On the other side, on the Galaxy Aristocrats home planet, Beta Planet, Elders meeting.
Jiang Qianxue, Yin Tianzong, and Feng Wuhen stood in front of the eight Elders. Li Tianxing was at their side, and he was full of cold sweat.
They were here to report Li Tianxings desertion matters to the Elders.
Youre saying that Li Tianxing, when facing the Zergs, chose to desert and leave you all stranded on Earth? The white-bearded Big Elder looked sternly at Li Tianxing. He asked with a deep voice, Is what theyre saying true?
Sweat rained down Li Tianxings body when faced with the Big Elders questioning. He dared no lie and could only admit in the end. Yes its true.
Humph. The Old Elder yelled loudly and berated him. You wasted my efforts in raising you as the number one genius amongst the younger generation of the Beta Planet. We exhausted countless resources on you. We even gave you the precious Ice Soul Stone instead of Qianxue! In the end, this is how you choose to repay us?!
The Ice Soul Stone!
In the beginning, the Ice Soul Stone belonged to Jiang Qianxue! It was, after all, a soul stone. Once fusion was complete, the owner would become near invincible! Who would not be envious? Who would not want it?
In the end, Li Tianxing was too simply outstanding. Jiang Dongliu, despite all objections, handed the Ice Soul Stone to Li Tianxing. Many wrought their hands in anguish. Although Jiang Qianxue never publicly spoke about the matter, she must have had some thoughts about it in her heart.
However, as it was her most respected grandfather who made the decision, Jiang Qianxue had never brought up the topic before.
Naturally, this made Jiang Qianxue even more angry about Li Tianxings desertion!
Old Elder, please let me explain! Li Tianxing panicked and said, There were too many Zergs there. Countless mutated Zergs were behind us too. All forms of communications were cut
Enough! One of the Elders stepped forward to interrupt Li Tianxing. The man was around sixty years old. He looked extremely stern and stopped Li Tianxing from talking. He was greatly enraged. Trash! You trash, since when have our Galaxy Aristocrats ever deserted! Even if we might die in combat, we definitely cannot run away without a fight! Do you understand how huge of an embarrassment your actions are? How do you expect me to still have the face to stay here?!
Li Tianxing instantly quieted down once he heard that.
Jiang Qianxue, Yin Tianzong, and Feng Wuhen looked at one another and sighed at the same time.
The reason was simple. The person who stepped out was Li Tianxings father, Li Hanhong. He was one of the Elders!
On the surface, it looked like Li Hanhong gave Li Tianxing a stern scolding. However, it was obvious that the rest of the Elders would choose to forgive Li Tianxing after the scolding. On the minimum, he would be allowed to make amends for his crimes by doing good deeds.
Expectedly, the stern Old Elders expressions softened after Li Hanhong spoke.
He sighed lightly and glanced at Li Hanhong and said slowly, Fine. Those were special circumstances. Its understandable why you were afraid. However, deserters cannot go unpunished. Alright, well settle it this way. We will allow you to make amends for your crimes by meritorious service. If we need to battle the Zergs in the future, you will fight properly for us. You must remember that mistakes can be made once, but not the second time!
Understood! Li Tianxing bowed and said loudly, I will be sure to remember that!
Li Hanhong laughed in secret at the side. He knew that the Elders had to give him face for this incident. Otherwise, all his years spent as an Elder would have been a waste.
After he saw how the Old Elder relented, Li Hanhong decided to strike the iron while it was hot. Oh right, Big Elder, the Galaxy Super Mecha Wars will begin the day after tomorrow. I heard that the Main City-level prize this year will be the Azure Root Bones-Forging Grass. That is a rare item, it could only be obtained as a prize. Even though we Galaxy Aristocrats are regarded highly, we can only get our hands on it through various competitions too. Speaking up to this point, Li Hanhong glanced at Feng Wuhen and continued, Since our Tianxing seems to be taking his training lightly, and his skills have been falling behind, I feel like it will be a good opportunity for him to attend the competition as training. If he manages to win the championship, itll be a good thing for all as well. What do you say?
How could the Old Elder not tell that he was set on obtaining the Azure Root Bones-Forging Grass once he said that?
It made sense too. Li Tianxing was always known as the number one genius amongst the younger generation of the Galaxy Aristocrats. However, he had just lost to Feng Wuhen recently. The Old Elder heard about this too. Between the two of them, Li Tianxing was the son of the Elder Li Hanhong, whereas Feng Wuhen was just a normal Galaxy Aristocrat. The gap between their statuses was huge.
Now, Feng Wuhen had beaten Li Tianxing until he could not even lift his head. This grudge would not be so easily resolved.
Alright, since thats the case. The Old Elder thought for a while before nodding. Let him participate, then. However, I have one condition. He looked at Jiang Qianxue and the other two people before he smiled and said, If the rest of you wish to participate, you have to be in the same Main City. In other words, all of you will enter the Shenluo City Super Mecha Wars!
No problem! Li Hanhong instantly agreed once he heard the Old Elders approval. Its settled, then!
Everyone left to prepare for the upcoming Galaxy Super Mecha Wars.
After Li Tianxing and Li Hanhong left, an old man next to the Big Elder walked forward and humphed coldly. This Li Hanhong, hes getting out of control! Humph, just because his Li Family is wealthy, Li Tianxing managed to get by with just a scolding after a huge mistake like that. If this continues, we will lose peoples hearts, and this team will become more difficult to control.
This old man was the Second Elder, Zhong Mingxuan. He had never seen eye-to-eye with the Li Family, represented by Li Hanhong. He grew increasingly upset as he witnessed the Li Familys recent rise to glory.
Theres nothing we can do. The Old Elder helplessly shook his head and said slowly, The Li Family has the strongest of the Five Kings, Li Xuancheng in their family. They have both money and power. Even if we are the Elders, we have to give him some face. What else can we do? Which of us old folks will be a match for Li Xuancheng? Even Dongliu does not stand much of a chance against Li Xuancheng.
Humph, I just cant bear the sight of it! The Second Elder Zhong Mingxuan said angrily, I hope he fails spectacularly at the Super Mecha Wars. That will be the best!
Its difficult. The Old Elder sighed. Then, he gave off an eerie laugh and said, Judging from the Li Familys strengths, they may actually end up winning this years competition. Our only hope now is that Hong Dali can create a miracle. Thats why I asked them to register in Shenluo City! Nobody else stands a chance!
