Chapter 209 – Skyrocketing luck (3)
This kind of disorderly battle, it was better that she didn’t get involved…
Once Su Luo thought this far, her footsteps slowly moved back in withdrawal .
Taking advantage of Su Zian being engrossed in battling the fierce panther, fuel was added to the soles of her feet as she rapidly slipped away .
Capable of making that haughty Su Qing disheveled and miserable to such a degree, surely it was more difficult to bear than killing her, right? Recalling this, the corner of Su Luo’s mouth pointed up even higher . Evidently, her mood had become quite good .
Within the Su Manor, the panther’s rampage resulted in scenes of devastation . In contrast, Su Luo strutted out the door with the little divine dragon in her arms .
Su Luo thought of that pile of gold coins in her space heaped up into a small hill, and she decided to directly go and bet on crystal stones .
When the crystal stones were extracted from the mines, it was wrapped up in a thick layer of weathered rocks . Even people with high cultivation weren’t able to sense whether a crystal stone existed through the layer of rock . Only after cutting it open would you find out .
As a result, the industry of gambling on crystal stones was born .
In the regions with crystal stone mines, the odds in these gambling halls were slightly higher, at about a thousand to one .
However, at regions further away from the crystal stone mines, the odds of the bets would become very low . It probably wouldn’t even reach the odds of ten thousand to one .
This job of gambling on crystal stones, if you win, you could get rich overnight . If you lose, you might squander the family fortune and go bankrupt .
As to gambling on crystal stones, it was basically ten bets with nine losses . Even if you win it might not necessarily be a huge windfall . However Su Luo was very self-confident, her self-confidence was not because of herself, rather, it originated from her belief in the little divine dragon .
The little divine dragon had an automatic treasure hunting ability . He could sense if the source stone contained a crystal stone or not, as well as its grade .
Su Luo was not fond of gambling . However, she urgently needed crystal stones for cultivation purposes . Therefore, she naturally wouldn’t let this kind of easy pickings to slip by .
Along the way, she asked for directions . Su Luo directly arrived at the capital’s biggest source stone marketplace .
The marketplace was huge, it was about ten times bigger than a soccer field .
Whenever a new batch of source stones were shipped over, the marketplace would be the liveliest . There would be a large number of people moving about like a never-ending stream .
And today, by a lucky chance, was the day new source stones would arrive .
Su Luo had really caught this opportunity by chance .
Su Luo felt out a gold coin from her clothing, while walking, she would fiddle with it . She planned to use this single gold coin to win a source stone that could support her cultivation for a period of time .
However, a single gold coin could only let her enter and stroll around in the common small stores . She couldn’t even enter the larger shops with just a single gold coin .
Su Luo looked around along the way, there were many small stores . In addition, there were some shop owners that directly arranged their goods on the ground .
“Young lady, want to buy some rough stones? These source stones are all transported directly from the southwest mining area . It didn’t make any stopovers along the way . Look here, with this red-colored mark on top, it’s extremely likely that this will have a red crystal stone inside . ”
When Su Luo passed by a street stall with goods on the ground, a plump middle-aged man called out and Su Luo stopped . He didn’t lose any time trying to sell his source stones to her .
His place here was a little out of the way, and his supply of goods was also not complete . Many wealthy people would directly go to the larger shops, a rare few would stop by .
However, Su Luo’s footsteps stopped, because the little divine dragon in her arms had all of a sudden woken up from its rest .
“Red——red——” The little divine dragon pointed at the yellowish source stone in the middle-aged fellow’s hand and called towards Su Luo . But his eyelids were still drooping, as if not very interested in it .
“Are you saying that it’s a red-colored crystal stone?” Su Luo became excited all of a sudden and urgently asked the little divine dragon in her head .
The little divine dragon unconcernedly nodded his little head .
Su Luo was excited, not because of that red-colored source stone, rather…that the little divine dragon could actually spit out human speech . Although it was simply just jumping out word by word, still compared to the ‘awoo, awoo’ before, it was a vast improvement .
