Chapter 39: The Biological Son of a Saboteur
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
A few days had passed and Lin Mo finally finished his training. Once Wu Jin heard this news, he immediately rushed over.
Lin Mo’s aura had yet to be retracted. The moment Wu Jin saw him, he froze on the spot. It felt like he was facing an endless ocean with humongous waves surging towards him. A chill rose from the bottom of his heart.
Wu Jin lowered his head abruptly and the pressure was greatly reduced.
“Congratulations, young master. You’ve gotten stronger again.”
Although he did not know Lin Mo’s current level, it was clear that the latter had become more powerful.
“Has anything occurred in the past few days?”
Wu Jin shook his head.
“Everything is calm. Nothing much has happened.”
Nothing happening could make a person more vigilant. The Miao and Lin families were probably coming up with a bigger plan. At the thought of this, Lin Mo immediately said, “I want to buy a cauldron. Help me look for one”
Wu Jin had a puzzled look on his face.
Why would Lin Mo need a cauldron? He was not an alchemist, so he had no use for it. This was a really strange request.
“I don’t mean to be disrespectful, but why do you need a cauldron?”
It turned out that Lin Mo had previously learned the method of refining demonic beasts’ bloodlines from Du Nanfeng. A cauldron was an indispensable tool. Moreover, if he ever wanted to learn the art of pill refining, he would also need it.
Wu Jin was very efficient. He gathered a lot of information very quickly.
“Young master, when it comes to forging weapons, the Wang family is the best among the four clans.”
This was true. For example, Wang Qing had extraordinary eyesight and he also showed a strong interest in weapons. He could easily tell the pros and cons of a weapon. Additionally, he was the one who bought the scythe at the auction.
“The four families are able to establish themselves in Qingyang City because each of them has their own strengths. Young master, if you want to buy a better cauldron, I think it’s best to start from the Wang family. They should have good connections.”
Lin Mo’s thoughts were similar to Wu Jin’s. Those in the market were all of medium-quality. The good things were all monopolized by the four big families.
“We shall make some preparations and visit the Wang family.”
Lin Mo did not have any conflict with Wang Qing. However, they did not interact either. Wang Qing had only bought items from him. Thus, he did not expect Wang Qing to show such enthusiasm towards his arrival.
“Father, this is the owner of the auction house that I mentioned to you earlier. His name is Lin Mo.”
Wang Zhong was sitting at the head’s seat. He was about forty years old. The man looked tall and sturdy. His eyes were somewhat cold and he had two curved eyebrows. He appeared to be mighty even if he was not angry.
After sizing up Lin Mo, he said, “I didn’t expect Owner Lin to be so young. It’s impressive that you’re managing the auction house.”
Wang Zhong’s voice was deafening like a loud bell.
Lin Mo also noticed the thick calluses on his thumb. It was probably caused by forging weapons.
“Clan leader, you flatter me.”
Wang Zhong ordered someone to serve Lin Mo some tea.
“May I know the purpose of your visit?”
Lin Mo did not beat around the bush and went straight to the point.
“I’ve heard that the Wang family is quite skilled in forging magic treasures and weapons. I’m here today to ask for a cauldron.”
Wang Zhong paused. The fragrance of the tea lingered in the air. No one could see his expression clearly. He slowly fiddled with the teapot’s lid and stayed silent for a while.
Wang Qing was a direct person who respected the strong very much. Lin Mo was about the same age as him, but he was able to set up an auction house in Qingyang City. Furthermore, he displayed extraordinary power when he killed the assassin. Hence, Wang Qing could not help but admire Lin Mo. He had wanted to befriend him for a long time.
Since Wang Zhong did not reply, Wang Qing could not help but say, “Father, Owner Lin personally came to request for our help. There are quite a number of good cauldrons in our house. Why don’t we aid him?”
Originally, Wang Zhong hesitated. Obviously, he knew about the enmity between Lin Mo and the Miao family. He was unsure if his family should get involved.
If he were to sell the cauldron to Lin Mo, the Miao family might think they were allied and get offended. Thus, he needed to think and be careful about this matter.
However, he did not expect his own son to instantly compromise his position.
At this point, there was nothing else he could say. He could not help but sigh and instructed the servants, “Bring out a few cauldrons.”
Wang Qing was a linear person. He did not understand the twists and turns. When Wang Zhong stared at him with an aggrieved expression, he did not even understand it.
“Owner Lin, see if there are any that you like.”
A few cauldrons were brought out. They were of different sizes and shapes. Lin Mo walked forward and saw the first cauldron. The entire thing was translucent like white jade. It emitted a lustrous jade-like glow. One could feel the rather gentle aura from within.
It was good, but not what Lin Mo wanted.
The second cauldron was green. It was like a treasure that grew in the mountains. Various plants were even engraved on it. There was a faint smell of faint medicinal fragrance. If this cauldron was used to refine medicinal pills, it would definitely produce fantastic results.
However, Lin Mo was mainly going to refine demonic beasts’ bloodlines. Medicinal pills were not a priority, so this cauldron was not suitable either.
The third cauldron was burning hot. It even raised the surrounding temperature by quite a bit. At the same time, it gave off a tyrannical aura and seemed to have a rather powerful offensive nature. This was not common for a cauldron. It could even be used as a weapon. Unfortunately, it was still not what Lin Mo needed.
After looking through everything, Lin Mo shook his head.
“There’s nothing here that I want.”
Wang Zhong did not expect Lin Mo to be so picky.
“If that’s the case, my cauldrons might not be suitable for you.”
