The lesson this time would be one that Lin Mengyu would remember for life.
Yun Jian took Lan Su to buy a few outfits that were more of the time.
Lan Su’s black robe, which was similar to traditional garments, stood out too much when they walked on the street.
There were not many who were involved in acting during this era. The film industry was not as developed as it was now. Televisions were still a rare sight in the homes of ordinary citizens in 1998, what was more, a color television.
People were generally earning a few hundred yuan a month and a television cost at least several thousand. Even if some saved up their salary without spending on food, they would have to take half a year to save the amount needed to afford a color TV.
Of course, no one would actually be silly enough to save up for a color television without eating for months. After all, food and shelter were the most basic survival needs before entertainment.
Hence, Lan Su’s outfit made her look like a lunatic to others. No one would actually assume her to be an actor.
“Wizard... Uh, Yun Jian... where am I staying tonight?” Lan Su nearly spluttered the words “Wizard Lord Wu” on the street teeming with people. She was quick to change her words, snipping her term of address before it flew out.
Lan Su was older than Yun Jian, so she was not calling her Sister Jian.
She looked to be around sixteen or seventeen in age but she had at least lived a few millenniums.
Yun Jian knew about it because Lan Su admitted to it herself. The latter even told her that those who cultivated in Yulong Mainland could easily live up to thousands of years too.
More crucially, there was a magical spring in Yulong Mainland. Once humans rinsed themselves of dirt with the magical spring, they could cultivate like people in the continent and live as long as they did.
It was unfortunate that no one knew where the magical spring was now. Since hundreds of thousands of years ago, not one human has stepped foot into Yulong Mainland.
Yun Jian and Si Yi, as well as Si Yi’s men, Ya Dang and Mo Sen, were the firsts to break that record.
“I’ll get someone to sort out your accommodation,” Yun Jian said and pulled out her phone to call Zhang Zhifan’s recent purchase and registration of a mobile number.
Doo, doo, doo...
Three rings were all it took before Zhang Zhifan picked up the phone swiftly.
“Hello, Sister Jian?” Zhang Zhifan’s middle-aged timbre came from the mobile phone.
That thing could make sounds? Lan Su could not help doing a double take.
Advance products like this did not exist in Yulong Mainland. It was fortunate that Lan Su was able to adapt quite well and gradually accepted the technology of the human world. She was just not quite used to it.
“Get a deluxe suite, the best and the most comfortable, for long-term stay,” Yun Jian spoke to the phone.
Zhang Zhifan, on the other end of the line, was thrown before his voice came back after a beat, “Yes, Sister Jian!”
Yun Jian hung up and a text message notification rang after a while. It was sent by Zhang Zhifan—the address stated in the text message was the lodging he had found.
After Yun Jian sorted out Lan Su’s abode and settled her there, she went to Qing You’s place.
Qing You stayed in a complete suite that was furnished with the best interior and furniture. The girl had saved plenty, spending her years working by Yun Jian’s side.
Going to Qing You now, Yun Jian was planning to tell her to go back with her to Gu Sha Mercenaries three days later.
Prior to this, Yun Jian had contacted Snake.Lizard. Three days later would be when she returned to Gu Sha to uproot the weeds.
Yun Jian made a knock on Qing You’s door only for the door to be pushed open directly.
She did not lock her door?
Entering straightaway, Yun Jian saw a familiar figure just as she walked in—where the living room couch was, Yun Yi had Qing You trapped under him on the furniture with his elbows supporting himself up. Both of them locked in an incredibly suggestive position.
Yun Jian was speechless. Why was her brother here?
