"I'm trading my contribution points for a Dragon Phoenix Academy's entrance test quota," said Xiang Shaoyun while pointing at the catalog.
"Ok," said the old man with a nod. He took the catalog and placed the corresponding page on the stone. With a flicker, 10 million was deducted from the number written on the contribution plate. Next, the old man returned the plate to Xiang Shaoyun. A different jade plate appeared in his hand. A dragon and a phoenix were carved on the plate, both exquisite and vivid.
"This is the entrance test plate of the Dragon Phoenix Academy. You can head straight to the Dragon Phoenix Academy with it in hand to take the test. As for whether you will be able to pass the test, that will depend on yourself," said the old man.
He further told Xiang Shaoyun more about the location of the Dragon Phoenix Academy and the time of the test. Done with all that, he left Xiang Shaoyun alone. Looking at the plate, Xiang Shaoyun found that apart from the dragon and phoenix, the number 55,555 was written on it.
It was really a rather big coincidence that Xiang Shaoyun was the 55,555th person to obtain the test qualification. Inwardly, he sighed, There are actually so many people taking the test. I reckon the number of participants will continue growing.
After stowing the plate away, he made way for Du Xuanhao and Han Pojun. The two had gathered a considerable number of contribution points as well. Naturally, they were here to spend their points.
Meanwhile, Xiang Shaoyun headed elsewhere. He was heading to the Contribution Hall, a place constantly filled with a large crowd. The so-called Contribution Hall was a place where one could trade their devil materials for contribution points. Of course, the trades conducted there were all free trades. There was no specific way in which one could trade. A lot of people would directly trade with other individuals instead of trading with the hall.
Xiang Shaoyun went to the hall to trade his devil materials for enough contribution points to purchase either a blood cocoon stone or an icesouls heart that he could use to repay the favor Du Xuanhao owed Han Pojun.
One ought to say that Xiang Shaoyun was really generous when it came to his own people. Upon entering the hall, he found that the hall was rather spartan in architecture. A few appraisers were seated at different corners of the hall, and they were in charge of appraising the value of the different devil materials brought here by the various cultivators.
Xiang Shaoyun headed toward one of the appraisers and stood waiting for his turn. At this time, the Han Clan sisters came over and stood beside him. The two beauties immediately attracted the attention of the other cultivators in the hall. Many of them started harboring evil designs on the sisters.
Despite their perverse thoughts, none of them dared to create trouble in the Contribution Hall. As for the sisters, they were already accustomed to being gawked at, so they did not seem to care.
Xiang Shaoyun asked them, "Here to trade?"
Han Xuewei answered, "Yes. We had gotten some stuff from the Devil Domain as well, so we're here to trade them for some contribution points."
"Oh," Xiang Shaoyun gave a short reply and said nothing else.
Suddenly, a youngster approached them and said, "Qianwei, Xuewei, you're both here? Nice to see you here!"
The young man was handsome and lavishly dressed, with a frivolous look on his face. He was clearly the young master of some organization. He was about 30 years old, his name was Yang Shuo, and he was a seventh-stage Skysoar Realm cultivator. One could say that he was decently talented in terms of cultivation. He was one of the Han Clan sisters' many pursuers.
Back then, after Xiang Shaoyun had released the Han Clan from the Skeleton Gang, the two had gathered a number of young cultivators to form a group that would head into the Devil Domain and search for the other Han Clan members.
At the second layer, they were attacked by a group of devils. As a result, many of the people in the group were killed. Subsequently, they encountered the Noxious Blood Gang, which resulted in the death of more of their group members while the rest fled.
This Yang Shuo was one of those who had fled with his guardian elder the moment they had encountered the Noxious Blood Gang. He had not expected that the sisters would be able to escape the gang. Thus, when he saw the sisters, he had to come explain himself and repair his image in the hearts of the two beauties.
After all, the sisters used to have a decent impression of him. Unfortunately for him, no joy could be seen on their faces when they saw him. Evidently, they were still displeased with him.
"Hey, Mister Yang," responded Han Xuewei indifferently.
To the side, Han Qianwei said unhappily, "Why are you talking to someone like that?" She then said to Yang Shuo, "We don't know you. Please leave."
"Hehe, how can you say that, Qianwei? Are you forgetting me after I helped you two? You're breaking my heart!" said Yang Shuo.
"Someone who abandons his friends during a moment of danger is not qualified to criticize us. Leave. We will be strangers from now on," said Han Qianwei.
"Come on, look at you? Both of you are still fine!" Yang Shuo argued. He shot Xiang Shaoyun a glance and said, "Are you abandoning your old lover after getting a new lover? How heartless of you!"
He was only saying that in order to make Xiang Shaoyun think that the sisters used to have a relationship with him. But Xiang Shaoyun did not react. Instead, the sisters were the ones infuriated.
"You bastard! What nonsense are you saying?" Han Qianwei raged.
Han Xuewei was also furious. "I have never seen someone as shameless as you!"
"Haha, I can't be bothered to bicker with sluts like you two. Brother, you have quite an appetite, huh? How do you like my leftovers?" said Yang Shuo as he howled with laughter.
He was the type of person who would ruin what he couldn't get so he could feel better about himself—a true scum. The Han Clan sisters were so infuriated they were on the verge of attacking.
However, an imposing voice suddenly rang out, "Do not create trouble in the Contribution Hall."
It was not known where the voice had come from, but it was imposing enough that the sisters no longer dared to do anything. Even Yang Shuo shut his mouth and left, still feeling pleased with himself.
Before leaving, he glanced at Xiang Shaoyun one more time as he thought, Don't dream of getting what I failed to get.
Xiang Shaoyun couldn't be bothered to offer any sort of reaction. Not even Emperors were worth his attention right now. And finally, it was his turn to make the trade.
"Take your items out," said the appraiser.
Xiang Shaoyun already had a storage ring on his finger. He did not dare to expose the fact that he had an astral cosmos sea before so many people.
A large pile of devil materials appeared. The appraiser merely gave the materials a glance before saying, "3,000 seventh-stage Devil King materials, valued at 210,000 contribution points. 4,050 eighth-stage Devil King materials, valued at 360,000 contribution points..."Previous Chapter Next Chapter
