Chapter 308 Exchange

The procedures were strict, so how could there be any room for mistakes? Mythical Companion Eggs were just too rare . Would anyone mistake it for other Companion Eggs after obtaining it?

Zhou Wen definitely wouldn’t be mistaken .

Regardless of the reason for the screw-up, there’s no reason not to get something this good . Zhou Wen pointed at the Companion Egg with the Minotaur label and said to Li Xuan, “I’ll take this . ”

“Minotaur? I say, Old Zhou, you sure are a little hardcore! There are so many Companion Eggs to choose from, but you have to choose something this ugly . Even if you want to save me money, that’s not how you do it, right? Let’s do it this way . I’ll decide, and I’ll get you that Nightmare Succubus tonight . I guarantee you that you won’t regret it,” Li Xuan looked at the introduction on the card as he said .

“No, I want this . If you aren’t going to bid for it, I’ll do it myself,” Zhou Wen said .

“You’re really odd . There are so many beautiful Companion Beasts, but you want none of that . Instead, you insist on something so ugly . Forget it, it’s fine as long as you like it,” Li Xuan said helplessly . After all, Zhou Wen had been a weirdo from the beginning . He wasn’t too surprised .

“Zhou Wen, Li Xuan, you two sure came early?” Wang Lu walked over and stood in front of them .

“Wang Lu, do you think Zhou Wen is odd? He doesn’t want all these beautiful Companion Beasts and insists on having an ugly Minotaur,” Li Xuan said with a smile .

“What Minotaur?” Wang Lu asked .

Li Xuan pointed at the display cabinet beside him . Wang Lu looked over and saw that the serial number was 107 . She looked at Zhou Wen in surprise and asked, “You wish to buy this Companion Egg?”

“Yes . ” Zhou Wen’s heart skipped a beat as he felt something amiss .

“What a coincidence . ” Wang Lu took out a note from her pocket and handed it to Zhou Wen .

“What’s this?” Li Xuan craned his head to look at the note with great curiosity . He saw the number, “107,” written on it .

Wang Lu said with a smile, “I originally didn’t want to come, but the organizer of this auction is a good friend of my family’s elders, and I’m the only one in Luoyang, so I had to attend . I never thought of buying any Companion Beasts, and couldn’t be bothered perusing the catalog, so I randomly wrote a number . I planned on bidding for the Companion Beast with that number this evening as a way to please the auction organizer . ”

Li Xuan found it rather coincidental when he heard that, but Zhou Wen was alarmed . Wang Lu’s luck was just too good . To be able to randomly select a Mythical Companion Beast made her a humanoid mascot .

“Don’t tell me the two of you plan on bidding for this Minotaur?” Li Xuan looked at the two of them and asked .

Since the two of them had chosen the Minotaur, they would only benefit the seller if they got into a bidding war . Since they were all fellow students with a good relationship, there was no need for that .

Wang Lu looked at Zhou Wen and said, “I don’t plan on giving up . What about you?”

“Same here,” Zhou Wen said .

“I really don’t understand you . There’s no need to fight for a Minotaur . There are plenty of them in the West District . If you really want one, I’ll get someone to get you a few . There’s no need to strain your friendship,” Li Xuan tried to mediate .

“My decision never changes once I’ve made up my mind, but what Li Xuan said is right . There’s no need to strain our friendship for a Companion Egg . How about this, I’ll bid for this Companion Egg, and you’ll bid for another Companion Egg . After the auction is over, we can exchange them as a gift exchange . That way, I wouldn’t have changed my mind, and you will obtain the Companion Egg you want . Isn’t that fair?” Wang Lu said after some thought .

“Fair enough . ” Zhou Wen nodded in agreement . He felt that if he really engaged in a bidding war with Wang Lu, there was almost no way he could beat her . Her suggestion would be for the best .

Be it money or luck, Zhou Wen was no match for Wang Lu .

“I’m going to the organizer to say hello . I’ll see you at the auction tonight . ” When an attendant came to invite Wang Lu over, she had no choice but to leave .

Zhou Wen continued surveying the Companion Eggs in the exhibition hall . Although Wang Lu had willingly made the exchange, Zhou Wen still felt a little uncomfortable . He couldn’t give up on a Mythical Companion Beast, but he should try his best to find a good Companion Beast for Wang Lu .

In a private room on the top floor of Xiyuan’s shop, a middle-aged man knocked on the door carefully . When the door opened a sliver, he immediately entered the room .

In the private room, an old man sat on the sofa, smoking as he asked, “Have you done what I told you to do?”

“Sir, it’s done . I’ve already switched the Companion Egg . As long as you bid for the Companion Egg at the auction, you can take it away without anyone noticing . The Zhang family definitely won’t be able to notice it in such a short amount of time,” said the middle-aged man nervously .

“Well done . What’s the serial number of the Companion Egg?” The old man put down the cigarette as his eyes shone with a fiery light .

“Sir, you promised me that as long as I settle this matter, you’ll let me regain my freedom and send me back to the sea-my home,” the middle-aged man said to the old man, his tone slightly anxious .

“I’ll naturally do what I promised you,” the old man said with a frown .

“I’ve worked for the Zhang family for so many years and finally managed to achieve my current position today . If what I did was discovered by them, there’s no way I can survive . It’s all because of your order, so you must keep your promise . Please send me home . ” The middle-aged man’s eyes were bloodshot, his hands clenched tightly .

“I said that I will definitely fulfill my promise . Don’t worry, what’s the serial number of the Companion Egg?” The old man stared coldly at him and asked again .

“107… 107… That Companion Egg greatly resembles a Minotaur Companion Egg . I did something to the Companion Egg, so even expert appraisers wouldn’t notice any problems ahead of time . Besides, no one will pay attention to a Minotaur Companion Egg…”

As soon as the middle-aged man finished speaking, a shadow that looked like a devil appeared behind the old man . The shadow spewed out smoke at the middle-aged man, engulfing him before he could react .

Very soon, the smoke swirled back . When it landed on the old man’s fingers, it had transformed into a cigarette .

The old man struck a match and lit the cigarette . He sucked it deeply before exhaling a mouthful of smoke . He said calmly, “Don’t worry, I’ll scatter your cigarette ashes into the sea . It can be considered as returning home . ”

Zhou Wen walked around the exhibition hall for quite a while, but he couldn’t find a satisfactory Companion Beast . They were either too expensive or too inferior . He couldn’t afford the expensive ones, and he felt a little guilty buying the inferior ones .

He was almost done checking out all the Companion Eggs except for one . Zhou Wen took one final snap . However, he couldn’t help but be taken aback when he saw the results .
