This kind of gemstone, the size of a grain of rice, was usually embedded in a ring. It didn't have any special attributes, but it was good-looking.
Xiang Nan estimated that this small gem could probably be exchanged for 1,000 to 2,000 gold coins, so it should be more or less enough.
He found a jewelry shop and put the gem in the shopkeeper's hand. "Take a look," he said, "and see how much it costs."
The shopkeeper looked left and right and said, "I'm sorry, I can't see anything about this. I have to let the jewelry master in the background look over. Please wait a moment."
The shopkeeper handed the gem to the waiter, who took it to the back.
Xiang Nan found a chair and sat down. He said happily, "When we get the money, let's go thank the aunt and buy all her buns."
Later, the waiter ran back and handed a small paper bag to the shopkeeper. He whispered in the shopkeeper's ear a few times.
Xiang Nan said expectantly, "How much is it worth?"
The shopkeeper shook his head and said, "Sorry, your things don't belong to gemstones. They're not worth much."
"How is that possible?" Xiang Nan hurriedly took the gem, but when he saw it, he frowned.
It was indeed the size of a grain of rice in his palm. Whether it was its color or shape, it was different from the gemstone he had brought earlier.
"This is not mine." Xiang Nan held the gem in his hand and said, "Do you think there is a mistake? My gem has two colors, but this little stone only has one."
The shopkeeper was a little impatient and said, "I don't understand what you're talking about. Take your things and leave quickly. We won't accept them here."
"Oh … I understand." Xiang Nan put away his smile and said, "You guys are looking at me with a foreign accent and don't have much strength, so you want to deceive me."
"Are you leaving or not!" The shopkeeper immediately raised his eyebrows and shouted coldly, "Don't come here without money to pretend. Look at your poor appearance, and you even ran into our shop to be a gemstone."
"What kind of gemstone can a poor guy like you have! Even if you do, it was stolen. Get lost, or don't blame me for being impolite."
As he spoke, a few burly men squeezed out from behind the door. Those burly men hugged their shoulders and looked at Xiang Nan threateningly.
"Haha, fine." Xiang Nan laughed angrily.
He took two steps back and said, "When I count to ten, either give me back the gem or bear the consequences."
"One, two …"
Those people were hugging their shoulders, looking like you could handle me.
"Ten." Xiang Nan nodded and turned to walk out.
"Haha, don't leave." The shopkeeper sneered at Xiang Nan's back, "Didn't you count to ten already? Do you need to do something? Leave shamelessly like this?"
"Yoyo, look at your shameless appearance. You still want to learn how to speak ruthlessly. In the end, you should give me a ruthless look."
Xiang Nan went down the street and pointed at the jewelry store. "Bird, blow it up."
The little bird immediately became excited. It opened its mouth, and the demonic energy in its mouth condensed into a small fireball.
Immediately after, the fireball flew into the shop with a whoosh.
The roof of the jewelry shop was blown away, thick smoke billowing out from inside, and the people inside, along with the shopkeeper, were blasted out by the fire wave.
On the wide street, pedestrians immediately gathered to watch the show.
Coincidentally, a group of strange carriages and horses also stopped. The eyes of the leading strong man shone as he looked at the little bird curiously.
All the gemstones in the jewelry shop were destroyed, and the sturdy men and shopkeepers were also lying in a pool of blood, wailing in pain.
Xiang Nan stepped on the shopkeeper's neck and said indifferently, "Do you think I'll leave after I blow up your shop? Let me tell you, I have to take what belongs to me."
"I'll count to ten and hand over my gem. Otherwise, it will be you who exploded this time."
The shopkeeper was no longer mad. He trembled and pulled out a small broken paper bag from his bosom with his sparkling right hand. Xiang Nan's black gemstone rolled out of the bag.
Xiang Nan held the gem in his hand and turned to leave.
"Hey, this friend, wait."
A muscular man grabbed Xiang Nan's shoulder.
Xiang Nan turned around and said coldly, "You want to meddle?"
The strong man smiled and said, "I was just passing by. Your grudge has nothing to do with me."
"Then let go." Xiang Nan narrowed his eyes.
The strong man let go of his right hand and smiled, "Friends, don't be so rushed. We are from the Moonlight Tour. Your little bird that can understand people and spit fire is very interesting. Are you interested in joining us?"
"Not interested." Xiang Nan turned around and left. The strong man shouted to Xiang Nan, "Friend, it seems like you are short of money. If you join us, I will offer you ten gold coins a month. Think about it."
"Not interested." Xiang Nan waved his hand and disappeared into the crowd.
"We will stay here for three days. If you change your mind, please come to the Octagonal Tower in the east of the city and find us," the sturdy man said unyieldingly.
When Xiang Nan returned to his inn, the innkeeper saw that Xiang Nan's expression was not good, so he smiled and rubbed his hands. "Objectively, how many days are you going to stay? If you stay for a long time, why don't you hand over the money first?"
Xiang Nan glanced at the shopkeeper and said, "Before you leave, you won't be missing a single point. Don't look down on me like that."
"No, no." The shopkeeper hurriedly shook his head.
After returning to his room, Xiang Nan sat on the bed sulking and muttered to himself, "When did I become so angry?"
"In the past, I would only treat the people from the jewelry store as if they didn't exist. Now, I actually take them seriously."
He came to the copper mirror and looked at himself in it, recalling his past.
He realized that even though he wouldn't provoke others so easily after joining the Haoran Sect, at that time, his temper was still quite hot. He would do such a thing as directly finding someone else's academy and overthrowing them on the spot.
But afterwards, his personality became smoother and smoother, becoming more and more edgy.
"Could it be because of the Great Freedom Scripture and Marrow Cleansing Scripture?" Xiang Nan frowned and thought to himself, it was very likely that he thought that he had cultivated the Buddhist technique, causing his heart to become clearer and clearer, and he no longer liked to fight with others.
This time, when he was revived, all the Buddhist profound arts in his body had returned to zero, and his once youthful and vigorous personality had returned.
"Perhaps this is my original disposition." Xiang Nan nodded silently.
At this moment, a message hung outside the window, buzzing.
"You're back so soon?" Xiang Nan pushed open the window and received the signaling order in his hand. It was indeed Feng Xuan's signaling order.
"According to the speed of this signaling, he should be near the The Nine Firmaments Continent ."
Xiang Nan pondered for a moment before activating the signaling.
Inside was a passage from Feng Xuan.
First of all, Feng Xuan confirmed that Xiang Nan did not seek help from the First Prince , and believed that this kind of behavior was the most rational and correct.
