Chapter 353 Stone Artifact Pill

It was late summer, and daylight didn’t last long . By eight in the evening, the sky had already darkened, and the street lamps outside the college’s walls that were modeled as wrought iron lamps had already lit up .

The west gate was a side gate of Sunset College . It wasn’t as grand as the main entrance, but it wasn’t small either . After Zhou Wen showed his pass to the soldiers guarding the gate, he walked past the west gate and saw a garden trail that was about three meters wide . Li Mobai was standing under a street lamp and holding his phone in his hand as he browsed through something .

“Li Mobai, why are you looking for me?” Zhou Wen walked in front of Li Mobai and asked directly .

Li Mobai lowered his phone and looked at Zhou Wen . “Wang Mingyuan betrayed humanity and entered a dimensional zone . Although it was his choice, it implicated the Wang family and his few students . It’s fine if the An family protects you in Luoyang, but it’s impossible for you to stay in Luoyang forever . It’s also impossible for you to be taken under the wing of others forever . Once you leave Luoyang, the road ahead of you will be thorny . No matter what you do, you will be labeled as a traitor’s student . Everyone will look at you as a horse of another color . No matter what you do, it’ll be harder than others . ”

“Can’t I always stay in Luoyang?” Zhou Wen said indifferently .

Although he indeed planned on leaving Luoyang after graduation, he naturally wouldn’t say this to Li Mobai .

Li Mobai smiled and said, “If you were such a person, you wouldn’t be my brother’s friend . My brother’s ability to read people is terrible, and he’s always muddle-headed in whatever he does . He thinks he’s free and easy, but in reality, he’s just avoiding problems . There are only two kinds of people who are willing to be friends with him . One is someone who covets his identity as the third scion of the Li family and wants to take advantage of him . The other is the kind who really doesn’t care about anything and just wants to make friends with him .

“If you wanted to take advantage of him, you should have taken advantage of the An family . However, you didn’t do so . Although I’m not willing to believe that Brother could have such good luck, you are indeed the latter kind of person . How could a person who doesn’t want to take advantage of others stay in Luoyang?” Li Mobai asked .

“That’s equivalent to not saying anything . Typical friends only have those two outcomes . It’s binary,” Zhou Wen said .

Li Mobai shook his head and said, “It looks like you are as simple and pure as Li Xuan . It’s no wonder you can be friends . In fact, other than childhood playmates, any friend you encounter after stepping into society is centered on interests . That also means that you have to be valued by others before others will choose to approach you and slowly establish a so-called friendship . Brother has always been muddle-headed and believes himself to be smart, but in fact, he is just burying his head in the sand . If he continues on like this, truly powerful experts will not be willing to interact with him . They naturally won’t be friends . Those who are willing to approach him are mostly only eyeing his wealth . ” “Can’t he have a friend that shares common hobbies and interests with him?” Zhou Wen asked .

“Of course . If you’re a soccer mate, you have to be able to kick a ball first before others come looking for you . This is your value . If it’s the antique collectors’ circle, you have to understand what’s valuable or have a collection before entering that circle . This is also your value . If you don’t have any value, why would others get you to play soccer? Why would they discuss collectibles with you?” Li Mobai said .

“What are you trying to get at?” Zhou Wen frowned slightly . Li Mobai was right, but Zhou Wen had a nagging feeling that something was amiss and couldn’t completely agree with him .

“I’m just having a casual chat . I invited you here today because I want to make a deal with you,” Li Mobai said . “What deal?” Zhou Wen asked .

“My Li family has some connections with the League’s brass, and happens to know some information about the Zhuolu battlefield . If you are interested in the news, I would like to ask you for a favor,” Li Mobai said with a smile .

“What do you want me to do?” Zhou Wen didn’t ask Li Mobai about the news .

However, Li Mobai said with a smile, “Let me give you the general outline . Back when the dimensional zone in the Zhuolu battlefield hadn’t opened, someone found a stone artifact on the Zhuolu battlefield . There was a pill inside the stone artifact . The League’s brass experimented on it . Only a small amount of powder could advance a Mortal Companion Beast to the Legendary stage . ” After pausing for a moment, Li Mobai continued, “I believe you’ve heard some of the methods used by the League’s brass . Soon after, someone called for so-called volunteers and did human trials . The result was exaggerated . An old man who had never cultivated seemed to turn young again after using a small amount of the powder . His hair turned black, and his skin became taut . After testing, his bones were akin to a man in his thirties or forties . His various vitals had improved tremendously, reaching the level of a peak Mortal . The powder that he used was almost negligible . Don’t you think people would feel tempted knowing that something like that exists? But at that time, the Zhuolu battlefield had yet to become a dimensional zone . The brass sent people over to find the location of the stone artifact . They wanted to see if there were any more . However, Zhuolu was huge, and they couldn’t dig up the entire place . That’s why a team of experts comprising Old Mister Ouyang was formed . ”

Zhou Wen only listened silently . The fact that Li Mobai could tell him meant that it likely wasn’t a secret .

Indeed, Li Mobai paused for a moment before continuing, “The expedition team has actually been in Zhuolu for a long period of time . They did get something . Old Mister Ouyang once returned to Luoyang midway . According to my investigations, after he returned to Luoyang, he didn’t even go to the An family . He only went to one place . ”

“Xiyuan Crystal Shop?” Zhou Wen stared at Li Mobai and asked .

Li Mobai nodded . “Yes, that’s why I’ve investigated the Xiyuan Crystal Shop and discovered some interesting things . It’s regarding Old Mister Ouyang and the Companion Beast locked at basement four . If you are interested, you only need to do me a little favor . I’ll tell you everything I know, and I guarantee you’ll be interested . You can also ask the An family to help you investigate, but a lot of clues were deliberately erased when I was doing the investigation . And I did the same thing . Even the An family won’t be able to easily figure out anything via an investigation . ”

“What do you want me to do?” Zhou Wen asked with a frown .

“Very simple . Sever ties with Li Xuan . The relationship between the two of you shall be limited to being schoolmates,” Li Mobai said .

“From the looks of it, there’s no need for us to continue the conversation . Goodbye . ” Zhou Wen turned around and walked towards the college’s west gate . Although he was very interested in the secret of the Companion Beast in basement four, he didn’t wish to be manipulated by Li Mobai .

Even if it wasn’t for Li Xuan, Li Mobai’s schemes had nearly killed him as well . If it wasn’t for him being careful and having certain strength, he might have long died with Li Xuan .

“Old Mister Ouyang had been to Zhuolu a long time ago . The Companion Beast in basement four of the Xiyuan shop might have been brought back from Zhuolu,” Li Mobai suddenly said .
