Yang Kai laughed and put his arm around her shoulders, “When we earn some money later, i'll add two to four for you.”
Die You turned her head and said, “Take your claws away!”
After carefully planning for a while, Yang Kai decided to divide up the work. Taking the one thousand Open Heaven Pills he had borrowed from Die You, he soared into the sky and headed straight for the market.
Not long after Yang Kai left, a piece of news spread throughout the servants’ house: On Die You’s side, two Jade Fire Silkworms could be exchanged for one Open Heaven Pill! This caused the entire servants’ house to burst into an uproar as countless people rushed towards Die You’s residence.
It should be known that when everyone was showing their respect to the Great General, they would usually feed him three or four insects before the Great General would bestow them with a Spirit Pill. This was when they were lucky, but if they were unlucky, no matter how many insects they fed him, the Great General would pretend they didn’t exist.
But now, as long as they could obtain two Jade Fire Silkworms, they would definitely be able to exchange them for one Open Heaven Pill from Die You. No matter how much money they earned from this transaction, it was only natural that they would rush over like a flock of ducks. Moreover, the laborers would spend a month in the fruit garden, and each month they would be able to catch a few insects.
Although they didn’t know what Die You was doing, after confirming the accuracy of this information and seeing someone exchange two Jade Fire Silkworms for one Open HEaven Pill, Die You’s door suddenly became filled with a long line. Everyone had just returned from the fruit garden, so who didn’t have some insects on hand?
Die You had a good relationship with the rest of the people in the servants’ house and also had a few so-called bosom sisters. At this moment, they naturally spared no effort to inquire about this matter, but this matter was related to her and Yang Kai’s interests, so how could she say anything? She just smiled lightly and kept her mouth shut.
Only a few people looked at this lively scene with thoughtful expressions…
On the other side, after arriving at the marketplace, Yang Kai went straight to the shop that sold the Wooden Box and Hundred Refinement Incense, spending ten Open Heaven Pills to buy two boxes of Hundred Refinement Incense.
According to his original plan, the several hundred Open HEaven Pills he had obtained before would be used to purchase the Hundred Refinements Incense. After all, he would have to bring General Si Chen around to catch insects in the future, so the consumption of incense would definitely be very high.
However, after listening to Die You’s suggestion, he found that her proposal was better. If he were to go according to his plan, not only would he offend a large number of people, but his efficiency would also be low. Now that he had Die You purchase the Jade Fire Silkworms from those servants, he would be able to save time and avoid offending others. Even if others learned the truth in the future, they would only think that his luck was good enough to be valued by the Great General and would not hate him.
Just as Die You had said before, since ancient times, there had been no good end to eating alone. It could even be said that with Die You’s methods, his income would probably be higher.
However, although he didn’t need to buy a large amount of incense, he still needed to keep two boxes of incense.
After leaving the shop, Yang Kai walked around the market and wanted to find a place to set up a stall, but after walking around for a while, he found that all the good spots had been taken up by others. The remaining spots were all in the corners, completely inconspicuous.
After observing for a while, Yang Kai went straight to a stall and handed over three Open Heaven Pills.
The stall owner was a young man who stared at Yang Kai in shock, “What does this Senior Brother want to buy?”
“Buy your booth!” Yang Kai waved the Open Heaven Pill in his hand, “Take it, give it to me, these three pills are yours.”
The young man pondered for a moment before quickly putting away the miscellaneous items in his stall.
“Leave behind your signboard!”
“It’s all yours!” The young man grinned and took the three Open HEaven Pills, squeezing into the crowd and quickly disappearing.
The stall owners on the left and right glanced over with strange looks in their eyes. In all the years they had been here, they had never seen anyone buy a stall. The stalls here were not managed by anyone, so they were always first come first served.
Yang Kai sat down at the spot where the young man had just sat, picked up the signboard, wiped off the words on it, and then picked up a piece of charcoal from the ground. After thinking about it for a moment, he lifted his hand and wrote a line of words on the signboard, then inserted the signboard into the side of the booth before opening it.
The vendor on the left was a half-grown old man, and when he looked around, he couldn’t help laughing. Seeing Yang Kai’s generosity, he had thought he was doing some kind of big business, but who would have thought that the signboard actually said he was purchasing insects from the fruit trees in the garden.
The old man also knew that there were insects in every fruit garden, but they weren’t very useful. Under normal circumstances, if they were caught, they would be crushed to death. He didn’t know why this young man was collecting these insects.
However, he couldn’t be bothered with other people’s business. Shaking his head, he no longer paid attention to Yang Kai and instead focused on his own business.
Yang Kai sat there for half a day, rubbing his fists and preparing to go all out, but after half a day, there were quite a few people who had stopped to watch, but none of them even asked him about it, causing him to be somewhat speechless. After thinking about it for a moment, he suddenly realized that not every Spiritual Land had a Great General Si Chen. The stupid chickens of the Fire Spiritual Land were the pets of the Protector Venerable, and it just so happened to like eating the Jade Fire Silkworms, which was why the laborers of Fire Spiritual Land had the habit of catching insects. The laborers of other Spiritual Lands should also be able to catch insects, but they definitely wouldn’t keep it.
After understanding this point, Yang Kai secretly frowned. If that was the case, his plan would not work.
At this moment, a timid voice sounded, “May I ask what kind of insect this Senior Brother wants to collect?”
Yang Kai looked up and saw a petite young girl standing in front of his booth. She had a delicate appearance and a few freckles on her nose. As their eyes met, the young girl’s face blushed slightly.
Finally, someone came to ask. Yang Kai’s eyes lit up as he asked, “Do you have any insects from the fruit trees?”
The young girl shook her head, “I didn’t…”
‘Then why do you ask?’ Yang Kai almost wanted to curse, but seeing her frightened look, he couldn’t bear it and squeezed out a smile, “Then please go ahead.”
The young girl didn’t leave and stood in place for a while before asking, “How did you take it?”
Since he had nothing else to do, and it was rare for someone to ask, so Yang Kai casually replied, “Four insects, exchange for one Open Heaven Pill here!” For the Fire Spiritual Land’s servant house, he had discussed with Die You to exchange two for one, so the price of the other Spiritual Lands was definitely different.
As soon as these words came out, the young girl in front of the stall didn’t say anything, but the old man who was setting up the stall next to her suddenly opened his eyes and turned to look at Yang Kai, “Boy, what did you just say? Four insects can be exchanged for one Open Heaven Pill?”
“One transaction for the insects, one transaction for the pill, but it must be alive.”
The old man still couldn’t believe it and only stared at Yang Kai suspiciously. After all, he had been here for so many years and had never seen anyone use Open Heaven Pills to exchange for these useless insects.
“Then wait a moment, I have a friend who has insects. I’ll call her over,” As the freckled girl spoke, she took out a small bell and gently shook it.
The old man on the side also stopped doing business and just watched with interest, as if he wanted to confirm if what Yang Kai said was true. Four insects could be exchanged for one Open Heaven Pill.
Not long after, a woman in her early twenties squeezed through the crowd and asked the freckled girl, “Xiao Mo, is someone collecting insects?”
The young girl called Xiao Mo pointed at Yang Kai and said, “It’s him. He wants to collect it, Sister Xueping, you can ask him yourself.”
Yu Xueping frowned as she looked at Yang Kai, then at the signboard next to him. After making sure she wasn’t mistaken, she asked, “How?”
“Four insects, one Open Heaven Pill!” Yang Kai stretched out his hand and gestured.
Although she had already learned of this from Xiao Mo's message, when she heard it with her own ears, she still couldn’t believe it. She really didn’t know what was wrong with this guy in front of her. He actually took out the Open Heaven Pill to collect this kind of thing. Was the Open Heaven Pill a waste?
However, since he had done so, he must have his reasons.
After pondering for a moment, she took out a wooden box and handed it to Yang Kai.
Yang Kai took it and scanned it with his Divine Sense before gently nodding, “Eleven insects. En, is this a Jade Water Silkworm?”
“The number is not enough, but it's almost twelve, three Open Heaven Pills!” Yang Kai said as he poured the Jade Water Silkworms into his refined wooden box. After returning the box, he handed over three Open Heaven Pills at the same time.
Accepting the Spirit Pill, Yu Xueping and Xiao Mo both froze in place, finally confirming that the young man in front of them was really doing what was written on his signboard.
This was an unexpected windfall, and Yu Xueping only felt bored, so she caught some Jade Water Silkworms to play with. After all, there was nothing to do as a servant, so who would have thought that she would be able to earn some profit from it…
After being stunned for a moment, Yu Xueping immediately smelled a great deal of profit from this transaction and hurriedly asked, “Senior Brother, how many Jade Water Silkworms do you want?”
“As many as you have, no limit,” Yang Kai smiled lightly.
“Will you come again next month?”
“I understand,” Yu Xueping nodded heavily, “When the market opens next month, it will still be here. I’ll come find you!”
Yang Kai also finally came back to his senses and understood what she was planning to do. In his heart, he cursed himself for being so muddle-headed. All he knew was to sit here and wait for someone to come to him and buy his goods, but he didn’t know how to cultivate an agent.
The other servants in the Spiritual Land didn’t have any habit of catching insects, so if he didn’t give them some benefits, where would the insects come from? Since this woman in front of him had such a brain and also had such intentions, he could cooperate with her.
“Sure!” Yang Kai smiled and nodded.
“What is Senior Brother’s name? Junior Sister is Yu Xueping.”
Yang Kai reported his name.
Yu Xueping said, “So it’s Senior Brother Yang. Senior Brother Yang shouldn’t be from Water Spiritual Land, and this is the first time we’ve met, so we don’t know each other too well. What if I can’t find Senior Brother next month?”
Yang Kai replied, “I will definitely come.”
Yu Xueping shook her head, “Words are not proof!”
Yang Kai looked at her with interest, “Then what do you propose?”
