Chapter 17: Today, I am wealthy!

Translator: Min
“Hey Buddy, where are you going?”
“Shi Mao! (*A high-end mall)”
He used to work at a high-end clothing store there as a sales representative .
He rolled down his window and let the bellowing wind blow in his face . As if it was the only way
to calm his pounding heart . He even stopped the driver from rolling up the window . The driver
looked at him as if he was a lunatic .
“Hehe, did you something good happen to you?”
“Yes, kinda . ” Jiang Chen laughed as he caught a mouthful of wind .
After they had arrived at the destination, Jiang Chen dropped a hundred dollar bill . “Keep the
change . ”
Jiang Chen flamboyantly left the car as the taxi driver stared in shock .
[F*ck!] He wanted to try to say that for a long time . Finally, he had the opportunity to do so .
After cashing out on the gold, he felt more relaxed than he had in many years .
A famous proverb once said that clothes make the man . In the modern world, people were quick
to judge based on how one appeared . Even if he had a three-piece suit on when he went into the
gold shop, the sales person would still consider him to be absurd . The concrete ground in the
summer day felt like scorching fire . .
After all, the first impression was purely dedicated by a person's appearance . The majority of
one's opinion would be formed in the first few seconds, which would impact any social
interaction in the future .
As someone who was always afraid of poverty, Jiang Chen did not consider himself as a low-key
individual . A slick look would make dating or business easier . It would be much more effective
compared to the knockoff brands he wore .
He approached the store he had previously worked at . Before he entered the shop, a sneer lit up
on his face . He was curious about what the cocky woman that fired him would think once she
saw his lavish lifestyle . If he was there to embarrass her, he wanted to be superb at degrading
her . Jiang Chen also fancied a few polished outfits for himself .
“Welcome, Sir . ” The sales associate was different . It was the end of July which meant that a lot

of universities were on summer break already . A lot of college student would do part time here .
Luxury stores were the top choice for gorgeous looking girls . It was respectable, not labor
intensive, and also a perfect place to find a sugar daddy .
The evil of capitalism .
Although millionaires visited the place frequently, rarely would they go alone . After all, men
usually didn’t have a tremendous amount of criteria for clothes . The existence of these high-

end stores often served as a place to demonstrate their wealth to their female companion . It
would further additional activities at the hotel that night .
Jiang Chen was not pretentious, but his purpose would say otherwise .
Jiang Chen picked out a piece of clothing valued at 10,000 without even blinking . The attractive
sales associate’s eye lit up as Jiang Chen’s hands started to pile full of clothes . She immediately
helped him intimately by carrying any extra clothing . She also gave him the sweetest smile .
The smile had “ask me out” written all over it .
Jiang Chen, who was busy looking for his old boss, were a little slow to take the hint . He didn’t
notice the flirty moves of the attractive girl beside him . Of course, if the girl were looking to
hookup, Jiang Chen wouldn’t mind . Her boobs were not as large as Sun Jiao's, but the vibe of
modernism combined with her youthful energy made her particularly striking . She must be a
prom queen at some university .
He slapped the clothes on the counter as he was irritated that he didn’t see the girl .
[F*ck, where is she? If she is not even here, what’s purpose of this whole thing?]
A gloom immediately cast over Jiang Chen’s face as he felt extremely frustrated .
The sales associate thought she offended the millionaire somehow . She carefully examined
Jiang Chen facial expression and even started to question her action .
“The total will be 157,000 dollars after rounding down . Would you prefer cash or debit?”
[What kind of question is this? Who the f*ck brings 150,000 dollars in cash?]
Jiang Chen took out his debit card and glanced around the store again . There were no familiar
faces to be seen .
“Debit . What’s the name of your manager?” Jiang Chen handed the card over as he asked the
question simultaneously .

That question made the sales associate tremble . She thought she displeased him, but why
would he ask for the manager?
The cashier who took the debit card also paused briefly . She looked at the sales associate and
displayed a professional smile .
“Xu Liping, Would you like me to contact her for you?”
For the amount he purchased, the complaint just could not be ignored . The cashier thought the
sales associate offended him and he wanted to see the manager for the same reason .
For these types of part-time employees, she was unfamiliar with them and obviously would not
offer a helping hand . There were plenty of part-time employees working at the store from the
university every study break .
“That’s fine . Also, do you know Xia Shiyu?” Jiang Chen interrupted .
The cashier raised her eyebrow with a confused look . She didn’t quite remember that name .
[Looks like she doesn’t know . ]
With a mixture of emotions, Jiang Chen turned around and left . However, the cashier suddenly
opened her mouth as if she remembered something .
“Yes, The previous manager name was Xia Shiyu . ”

“Where is she now?” Jiang Chen questioned .
“She got let go because of the layoff . We took over after we received training from the
headquarters . So we are not familiar with this place . If there is anything we did wrong, please
kindly forgive us . ” With a polite smile, the cashier said a bunch of pleasing words . But Jiang
Chen wasn’t paying attention .
[She lost her job as well . That cocky girl stayed only for a bit longer . Hahaha . ]
Jiang Chen wanted to burst into laughter, but the brief excitement was soon overtaken by a
sense of despair . It felt like he had no way to unleash his victorious excitement .
He stored everything into the storage dimension and left the place where he shared a
significant amount of his recent memories .
He pushed open the spotless glass door as a wave of cold air emerged . Jiang Chen thought he
might as well get his hair designed in this salon . He obviously didn’t make a reservation, but his
luxurious looking clothing made the designer welcome him into the VIP room immediately . He
only wanted to get a haircut . Although the result would be the same from a street side barber,
Jiang Chen only wanted to spend money .
Only an extravagant lifestyle would relieve his tense mood .
Jiang Chen finally understood why corrupted people lived such a luxurious life . If they didn’t
spend money, how would they stimulate their already frightened mental state?
He leaned against the plush chair as a delicate-looking hairdresser walked in . The hairdresser's
wavy hair fitted her flawless and delicate face as if she came from a drawing . The fashionable
clothes covered her serene figure perfectly . Even in just one glance, Jiang Chen was amazed by
her beauty .
Her lilac scent tingled Jiang Chen’s senses . Her graceful hands massaged his hair delicately .
With music in the background, it felt like heaven . She made washing hair into a form of art .
What Jiang Chen didn’t know was that the designer was also judging him . From the fashion
industry, she knew how much Jiang Chen’s wardrobe cost . With that, he was also great looking .
Compared to the customers she has served in the past, a lot of them were either bold or had a
huge beer belly .
She peaked at the muscular chest . Although covered with a layer of clothing, she could almost
feel the firmness . The female hairdresser blushed as she began to daydream . [What would it
feel like to be with this guy?]
“The water is a bit hot . ”
“Ahh! I am so sorry sir . ”
Jiang Chen was a bit confused . In theory, she shouldn’t make a mistake like this . It interrupted
his almost short nap . He didn’t seem to be bothered by these mistakes .
After his hair was washed, the dresser gently used a towel to cover Jiang Chen’s hair . With soft
movements, she dried his hair gently . Every detail was performed to perfection . It was the
ultimate pleasure . Especially when her leg slightly brushed against Jiang Chen’s hands, the
silky smooth feeling was sensational .
The designer even gave him a massage after . Her soft finger turned and twisted on top of his
head as if she was playing a symphony . The rhythm of her fingers was so pleasurable that it

made Jiang Chen almost moan out .
Jiang Chen checked himself out in the mirror after the completed service . Although his hair was
not that different, his presence completely changed . His brand new outfit combined with the
haircut spoke sophistication on every level .
After, he wandered into a busy mall, a place he passed before but never had the money to buy
anything . Though now even with money, he didn’t know what to buy with all these choices . He
thought, only if Sun Jiao was here .
Jiang Chen laughed self-mockingly . That idea was as unrealistic as it could be . It would be
difficult to explain everything in the first place, let alone the feasibility of taking a live person
with him to perform interdimensional travel .
The crowded street felt lonely by himself .
Most of his close friends left the city to either go home, venture out, or leave the country . He
was only one that remained in the crowded and emotionless city .
His contacts were full of numbers, but he didn’t have anyone to call .
The benefit of shopping alone was that he had complete freedom . He could buy anything and
eat anything he wanted . He passed a women’s clothing store and almost walked in . However, he
quickly realized how weird it was to go in without a female companion . So clothes shopping for
Sun Jiao and Yao Yao would have to be next time .
As the sky turned into a dim yellow, it was dinner time .
He sat in a high-end restaurant, alone . He chose whatever was the most expensive at the time .
King crabs, lobster, and steak . He didn’t know if he would finish everything or not, but he still
ordered ten dishes . The server had a look of disbelief and concern, so he slapped his debit card
on the table .
After the gene vaccine, Jiang Chen’s body condition significantly improved . Therefore, the
amount of food he ingested also increased substantially .
The server looked horror, as Jiang Chen feasted on the meal . He managed to finish the majority
of the dishes .
The rest of the dishes, he didn't plan to pack up .
He walked out of the restaurant and left the server dumbfounded . It was not the first time the
server saw someone eat such an unbelievable amount of food . However, it was the server's first
time seeing such a sophisticated and fit person finish almost everything on the table .
These dishes were all made of meat too .
