Du Guong Qiong’s eyes changed.
The middle-aged man sitting with her repelled backwards, shrinking from shock.
Everyone around looked over, seeing the bow in Gu Qing Shan’s hand.
Facing such a dangerous longbow, everyone was smart and didn’t openly say anything, only turned to ask their respective servants.
Zhang Ying Hao raised both his hands, celebrating early: “The grand prize is ours!”
He looked at Gu Qing Shan, then again at the ancient crocodile in the lake, saying: “It’s really regretful that you won’t join my association”
“No need to feel regret, we’re business partners now after all” Gu Qing Shan answered.
The servant quickly stepped forward and said: “Sir, what you did is against the rules”
“Didn’t you say the only rule was to not kill him?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
The servant was unable to say anything back.
What they’re saying is true, but all the betting customers here only ever think about ways to attract the ancient beast to eat the person.
There’s never been anyone who does something like attacking the beast.
Would this count as against the rules or not?
“I’ll have to ask my superiors” the servant quickly took out a communicator as he said that.
Just a minute later, he turned it off.
Then he said: “Sir, you two can leave now”
“We will refund all the chips you bet before, and this round will simply not count”
Gu Qing Shan asked: “What if we don’t want to leave and keep on betting instead?”
The servant showed a troubled look, looked at Zhang Ying Hao and again at Gu Qing Shan, quickly made an evaluation.
To be a servant here, their eyes must be extremely sharp.
“Do you really want to continue betting?”
The servant has to take out the communicator again.
Shortly after, he replied: “If you can go up there yourself, and survive for the full three minutes, then all your winnings from before will be returned to you as the rule dictates”
To want their customer to go down themselves, this shows just how angry Gu Qing Shan’s had made their boss.
“You want to know what I say about that?” Zhang Ying Hao stood up, smiling coldly.
As a young master of a 9 Lords family, of course he would not stand to receive this kind of humiliation.
Gu Qing Shan held him back: “No need to make it rowdy, I can deal with this”
“I can go myself” Gu Qing Shan spoke to the servant, “furthermore, I can even gift all the betting chips I win back to you, I’m only interested in the grand prize”
“Are you serious?” The servant was a bit surprised, asked Gu Qing Shan again.
“That’s right, peace makes wealth, isn’t what they say? We’ll only take what we need” Gu Qing Shan smiled and answered.
The fact is that the other party still has what he wants, so he can’t make too big a ruckus. Otherwise, if the other party were to destroy the item, his Quest will be very hard to fully complete.
The servant stared at the youth before him.
What youth, he’s more like a sly old man.
To win from exploiting a casino, if anyone were to cut casino profits that way, the boss will be the first to not let him go.
But now he’s openly showing his needs, not caring a single bit about the insane amount of chips, and only want one of the two special items.
This kind of action that doesn’t account money isn’t only rare, but also make people weary to make light of him.
Not to mention, what he suggests also benefit the casino.
The servant took up the communicator again, reporting the situation.
As the voice inside the communicator replied, the servant listened, nodded and looked at Gu Qing Shan.
“The boss praises you very highly and he agrees with your idea”
“Excellent choice. Now can we begin? My time isn’t something to waste” Gu Qing Shan stood up and said.
“Yes, I’ll ask them” the servant excitedly reported to someone else with the communicator.
After a bit, he turned it off and politely bowed to Gu Qing Shan.
“Sir, we’ll make the arrangements now, please come down to the lake first”
At the same time, the loud speaker on the lakeshore once again spoke.
“Today, a hero had killed our dragon, losing us a lot of betting chips, so let us see, if he really is a hero, or just a wannabe zero!”
A small boat drifted over, stopping where Gu Qing Shan’s boxed seat was.
“You ——-“ Zhang Ying Hao was about to say something.
“It’s no problem, when you need to ask others for something, you have to be friendly, no need to make them hold a grudge” Gu Qing Shan patted him on the shoulder and jumped down.
The boat took Gu Qing Shan to the center of the lake.
The guests around them whistled and clapped in excitement.
“What an idiot”
“Looks like a good show is about to begin”
“A more exciting bet indeed, not bad, not bad”
“How will he die?”
Zhang Ying Hao glanced at Gu Qing Shan moving away, muttering in confusion: “Space monster parts… There’s no research so far that shows their worth, just why does he want it so badly?”
The loud speaker system spoke again.
“Right now, ladies and gentlemen please place your bets!”
“To clarify, this time we’ve prepared a total of 3 giant crocodiles!”
On the other side, Du Guong Qiong suddenly sat straight up, thought for a bit, then stood up and walked to the edge of her boxed seats, looking down at the lake.
Only to see the boat moving forward, as the youth stood at the front of the boat. His face was calm.
Around the lake, all the people were shouting in excitement.
“I’ll bet 300,000 chips he won’t survive for 20 seconds!”
“20? Ahaha, I’ll bet 15 seconds!”
When he got close to the lake, Gu Qing Shan jumped lightly as he landed on the small dingy.
As he stood up, the loudspeaker spoke again.
This time was a highly penetrating voice.
“The cruel show is about to begin, this bet is yours to make, just how long do you think he can survive?”
The voice raised higher: “My friends. Place. Your. Bets!”
On all the boxed seats, everyone’s emotions got highly agitated and so they quickly made their bets.
Zhang Ying Hao sat down, then suddenly called the servant over.
“I want to exchange for a few betting chips”
He took out his personal Holo-Brain, transferring a large amount of Merit over.
As the servant confirmed it, he quickly went and get the chips.
Just then, a female voice was heard from behind Zhang Ying Hao.
Zhang Ying Hao stood up, turned around and greeted: “Nice to meet you, beautiful lady, may I ask what can I help you with?”
“Your friend” Du Guong Qiong pointed at the center of the lake, “you’re not worried?”
Zhang Ying Hao evaluated the other party for a bit.
This woman was relatively tall, her almond-shaped eyes were calm and charming, as well as having a graceful hourglass figure and demeanor.
A woman with three perfect qualities, a first-rate woman even with his standards.
Unfortunately, this woman was a bit of a masochist, after being frightened with killing intent she actually became interested in that man-shaped monster.
Zhang Ying Hao silently sighed, but still answered: “I’m not worried about him at all, he’s a very good hunter, so you also have no need to be scared for him”
Du Guong Qiong thought for a bit then: “If you don’t mind, I would like to enjoy this round with you”
Zhang Ying Hao looked at the boxed seat next to him.
Du Guong Qiong followed his eyes, then said: “There’s no problem, no need to pay any attention to him, he’s just my subordinate”
When the middle-aged man saw her turn her head, he smiled back bitterly.
Zhang Ying Hao: “Then please have a seat”
It was now that the servant brought back another full box of chips.
“Sir, your betting chips” the servant said.
“Make a bet for me, I bet that he’ll live” Zhang Ying Hao casually said.
“How much sir?”
“Ah, yes” the servant confirmed, then took out his Holo-Brain to record the bet.
As Du Guong Qiong glanced at the chips, she changed her impression a bit.
This box of chips, to convert it into Confederate credits, would be worth about 200 million.
Zhang Ying Hao noticed her look, smiled and said: “I won’t lie to you, there’s a good chance to make quite a bit of money right now, you can also place a bet with me for a spot of profit, if you lose then I’ll pay you back”
Du Guong Qiong: “No need”
As Zhang Ying Hao failed to hit on her, he asked curiously: “Why not?”
Du Guong Qiong gracefully smiled, then said: “You can always make more money, today I’m only here to be entertained”
Zhang Ying Hao went silent for a bit, then asked: “Pardon me for asking, but what would your surname be?”
“I’m Du Guong Qiong”
Du Guong Qiong.
Zhang Ying Hao gasped, then silently regretted.
———–why couldn’t it have been me just now that let out that killing intent and seduced her.
