was late afternoon now as Yen Wen had come in for a mid-afternoon bath before she conducted business. Xiulan had found that beyond just seeing the market price for a good with the system she could actually see individual peoples needs for a particular good.
Using this she had quickly searched out the most motivated buyers in town for her erm she meant Yen Wens hides. She had sold them all for at least a silver and some for as much as 1 silver and 5 coppers. After giving Yen Wen her cut Xiulan was left with 14 silvers.
Xiulan beamed at Yen Wen, ”with this I will build my fortune, ” she declared.
Yen Wen flicked Xiulans forehead, ”perhaps first you should buy some shoes and a real dress. ”
Xiulan had the grace to look at her dirt covered bare feet a little sheepishly. As her plan was to go home with Yen Wen for now, she bought some rugged boots and a practical set of leather pants. With this she also bought a red linen shirt to put under the fur that Yen Wen had lent to her. She could not help buying the tightest cloths she could when she saw the gulping Yen Wen staring as her butt in her tight leather pants.
After she purchased her new cloths, she only had 5 silvers left but it would still be enough. With the system Xiulan could exploit any price differences to make money.
Just as they were getting ready to leave town Xiulan heard an annoying voice, ”whore? What are you doing here. I paid to have you tonight. ”
Turning around Xiulan saw the Merchants son swaggering towards her. He had a servant with him. Using the appraising eyes (as she had taken to calling them) of the system she looked the pair over.
Kang Gang – Merchants son, third level forced spiritual roots. No cultivation. Worth: 10 000 gold coins. Double to eliminate.
Unnamed servant number three (lets face it he is not worth naming.) – No cultivation, No spiritual roots. Worth five copper coins. Double to eliminate.
Xiulan thought of denying it was her, but Kang Gang knew her face too well. He had been ogling her for years now. Xiulan instead moved behind Yen Wens back and peeked out at Kang Gang.
”I do not know what you are talking about. I am a free woman see ” she pulled down her collar to make clear that she had no slave mark.
Kang Gang sneered, ”I do not care if you are free or a slave. I paid Madam Chen to have you and I will have you even if I have to drag you back to the Plum Blossom myself. ”
He took a step forward but Yen Wen took a protective step to keep herself in-between Xiulan and Kang Gang. Kang Gang scoffed and moving quickly attempted to backhand Yen Wen as if she were some common powerless women. Yen Wen reached up intercepted his hand and then broke it at the wrist.
Kang Gang screamed and started to curse Yen Wen. Yen Wen kicked Kang Gang in the stomach forcing the air from his lungs. She seemed to be too immersed in her anger at him to notice the servant coming from behind her with a dagger.
”Lookout, ” cried Xiulan. Yen Wen started to turn but she would not be quick enough. Gritting her teeth Xiulan decided to see what the eliminate function of the system did. She had expected the servant to just keel over dead or something.
What she had not expected was the servant to blow up into a bloody mess. Blood and guts flew everywhere. Skin was through into the air to drift around in the evening breeze.
By now several people had gathered to watch the altercation but they all ran away screaming when the servant was blown to pieces. The system chimed unhelpfully; Unnamed servant number three eliminate. Worth 5 coppers. Price 1 silver. The perfect Merchant does not step in to do battle herself. She has lovers and servants to do that for her. The host is discouraged from doing this losing business in the future. ”
While everyone was still confused Xiulan grabbed a now bloody Yen Wen and ran with her out of town. Xiulan would have to build more wealth and strength before she could show her face here again. Looking at a bloody and shocked Yen Wen Xiulan did feel though that it was good to be free. She ran with the wind blowing threw her hair.
