Chapter 333 - 333: Beast Hall Plan?
Long Chen entered the Drunken Pavilion which looked quite different than what he imagined it to be.
The whole place seemed like it was made in glass which made it look a lot different compared to the other buildings. Long Chen tried but he couldn't see inside the place through the glass.
He stepped towards the doors and pushed the doors open as he entered the place.
The inside looked much fancy as well. The floor was also made of glass, but it still provided some friction and didn't make him slip.
There were around 200 glass tables inside as well. The only thing in that place that wasn't made of glass were the fancy chairs.
Long Chen found an empty table in that place and walked towards it.
Coincidentally, from a different location, another man was walking towards the same table.
The man had long blonde hairs that matched the color of his eyes.
He looked twice the age of Long Chen. There was also a girl beside him who was slightly younger and looked like she was in her early 20s.
The girl's face had a few similarities with the face of the boy. She also had blonde hair and similar color eyes.
There were 3 chairs around the table they were walking to. Both, Long Chen and the man, got to the table at the same time as they touched the chairs on their side.
"Hey, little kid. This table is mine. Go play someplace else," The man said as he glanced at Long Chen for a short second.
"What's your table doing in this place? Can't you keep your table under your control?" Long Chen smilingly said.
The blonde-haired girl couldn't help but laugh at Long Chen's words.
"You can use sharp words. Leave this place before I make you unable to use your sharp words," The man said in full seriousness.
"Really? How do you wish to achieve that?" Long Chen said with an amused smile on his face.
"By cutting your tongue off," The man said as he glared at Long Chen.
"Pfff... Hahahaha," Long Chen couldn't control himself from laughing out loud.
"Do you think I'm joking? Don't make me prove my words kids. I don't want to use violence in front of my sister," The man said.
"Wanna give it a try? Long Chen said as his smile disappeared.
"You!" the man glared at him as he tried stepping towards him, but the girl caught his hand.
"Please don't fight. Let him have the seat. We can sit elsewhere," The girl said.
"You guys don't need to leave. You can have the table. Treat it as a gift from me to the beautiful lady behind you," Long Chen smilingly said as he turned back and went to the table that was right beside.
"You!!!" The man could feel his temper rising as he struggled to find words to respond.
"Brother, Let it go. We already got the table," The girl said to the boy as she sat on the chair.
"Hmph, I'm leaving him only because you're asking for it," The man grumbled as he sat down on the chair.
Long Chen gave his order to the waiter and the blonde-haired man did the same.
"Brother, You still haven't told me. Why are we selected to go to the North Moon Empire? What are we supposed to do there?" The girl said in a low voice.
"As I said, I'll tell you later. We still have a few months after all. So many top talents from our Beast Hall have been selected. I'm just glad that the elders trusted us and made us join the team as well," The man replied. He kept his tone down as well.
"The Elders trusted you, not us! They didn't even tell me anything. All they said was that I need to be in my best condition when it's time to leave," The girl said with an unhappy look on her face.
"Don't worry about that. They didn't tell me anything extra either. I think we'll be given a brief about everything a few days before it's time to leave," The man said to her.
"They didn't tell you either? Then how do you know what it's about?" The girl asked.
"Well, someone special told me a few things about this," The man said with a proud smile on his face.
"Someone special? Who?" The girl inquired with a confused look on her face.
"I can't tell you who it is, but I can tell you that the person who told me is going to be the vice-captain of our team. That's why he knew. Now don't ask more. You'd find out soon enough. Just be patient," The man said smilingly.
"You're so bad. You won't even tell your little sister. Fine, I won't ask anymore," The girl said with an annoyed look on her face.
The man didn't say anything. He didn't even look at her since he didn't want to be defeated by her pleading eyes and end up telling her everything.
In a few more minutes, the wines arrived for everyone.
The waiter placed 2 wine bottles and glasses on the table of the man. He placed 1 bottle and 1 glass on Long Chen's table.
'So they're from the beast hall. Interestingly, it looks like the beast hall is preparing something as well. I wonder if Lang Jing's plan had something to do with that. He also said that he needed me after a few days,' Long Chen thought with a frown on his face as he glared at the wine bottle.
The blonde-haired man glanced at Long Chen and saw him looking at the bottle intensely.
"Why are you staring at it? Is this your first time seeing an expensive wine? I wonder if you even have the money to pay for it," He said in a mocking tone.
"Can't you come up with something better than these childish taunts?" Long Chen responded to him.
"Brother!" The blonde-haired girl glared at the man as she called out.
"Hmm, Since my sister is not happy with me messing you up, I will let you go again," The man again shook his head as he said.
'Sigh, He is so weird,' Long Chen thought with a frown on his face.
He opened the bottle of the wine and poured the wine in the glass.
He picked up the glass and took his first sip. He quite enjoyed the taste of it and took another sip. In less than a minute he had emptied the whole glass.
As he put the glass back on the table, he felt something inside his body. His Qi was somewhat stimulated. He could feel his cultivation had also increased slightly.
'This wine can increase my cultivation? That would be so amazing. I'd buy all their wine,' Long Chen thought as he filled the glass with wine once more.
He picked up the glass and emptied the glass once more and waited for his cultivation to increase even further.
More than 5 minutes passed, but nothing happened. There was no reaction and no increase in cultivating.
He couldn't help but frown as he filled the glass to the brim and drank the wine. He waited for some time, but it was the same. Nothing happened.
'What is wrong with it? It's the same bottle of wine and nothing is different. Why isn't my cultivation increasing like the first time though?' Long Chen thought as he looked confused.
He didn't notice that the blonde-haired man was looking at the change in his expressions with an amused smile on his face.
"It's your first time in this place, isn't it?" The man asked as he looked at Long Chen.
"Yeah," Long Chen replied.
"I guess you don't know the secret of this wine yet. That's why you're acting so strange," The man chuckled as he took a sip of his wine.
"Secret of the wine?" Long Chen asked with a perplexed look on his face.
