I Have the Alchemy Emperor in My Head
Chapter 437 - The Sword’s Name Was Ju Que
Li Xiuyun was shocked by Gao Hongzhi’s sudden outburst. Ever since she had known Gao Hongzhi, she had never seen him so angry. She thought he was the type of person to laugh at anything and take everything for granted.
“I know you’re from the student council, but so what? Can the student council cover the sky with one hand?!” Gao Hongzhi roared angrily, “Think about this carefully. Who’s closer to whom? Yunfan is my brother. If I marry you, he’ll be your brother. Who does Jiang Lingxiao think he is? Do you want to spend the rest of your life with him?
“Let’s go, Yunfan. We’re getting out of here!”
Gao Hongzhi angrily put on his shoes and walked out of the cafe. Li Xiuyun, on the other hand, continued to sit in the room, seemingly in a daze. She had never expected Gao Hongzhi to suddenly explode like this.
Chu Yunfan glanced at Li Xiuyun who looked stunned and sighed. Then, he walked out as well to see Gao Hongzhi smoking a cigarette in a corner, forcefully inhaling and exhaling to calm himself down.
“Why are you suddenly throwing such a tantrum? She was just thinking about what’s good for you,” Chu Yunfan said as he walked up to Gao Hongzhi.
“If she was thinking about what’s good for me, she wouldn’t be so distant and indiscernible. When you pick a life partner, you should pick a good one. How can she be so dismissive of other people’s efforts?” Gao Hongzhi still had some lingering anger.
Chu Yunfan looked at Gao Hongzhi and saw a whole new side of him. They had not met in a few months and Gao Hongzhi seemed to have been reborn. If Gao Hongzhi had been a big boy in the past, his style of doing things now had suddenly changed into that of a man.
Could it be that Gao Hongzhi had really changed so much after getting a girlfriend?
Of course, Gao Hongzhi could not hide the male chauvinism in his bones. In this era, no one criticized male chauvinism. Only those in a completely disadvantaged position would criticize male chauvinism.
Although this era was not equal, the difference was not as obvious as back in the Common Era. During the cataclysm, mankind suffered a devastating impact and every individual became an important figure. Under such circumstances, the difference between people quickly broke down.
In this era, individualism was advocated. Many people practiced chauvinism. No one was nobler than anyone else.
“Hehe, marry a good partner. I think she’s just trying to help you. She isn’t necessarily at fault,” Chu Yunfan said with a chuckle, “She’s right. The Imperial Palace is not only an empty shell but also a butt load of trouble. If you work with me, things will become very troublesome.”
“Trouble my *ss, Yunfan. There are some things that I understand even if you don’t tell me. My talent is far inferior to yours and Siyu’s. My journey to reach this place has been a difficult one. Who knows. I might only be able to reach the day after tomorrow. But the two of you are different. Your future is limitless. I can’t help you much. Why are we even talking about trouble? In the past, when the two of you helped me to cultivate, you did not think I was troublesome, did you?” Gao Hongzhi said with a grin. He looked like a happy-go-lucky fellow, but he knew a lot of things. A fool would not be able to get into Federation University.
“All right, since you’ve made up your mind, I won’t dissuade you. I will not intentionally bring harm to you, my brother. Your future is definitely better than what you and your father think. Although Xiuyun has a misunderstanding of me, she doesn’t have anything against you. You should know me well, right? If she really didn’t fancy you, you wouldn’t have introduced her to me in just over a month? Put away your pride and go coax her. Women like to hear nice things,” Chu Yunfan said, “I have other matters to attend to, so let’s end things here for now. I’ll come to find you again another day.”
“All right. Run along now,” Gao Hongzhi said.
After Chu Yunfan bid farewell to Gao Hongzhi, he prepared to look for a few other people. He did not have many connections at Federation University, so the first people he looked for were naturally his fellow teammates.
Chu Yunfan was undoubtedly closer to them than anyone else at Federation University.
After hearing that Chu Yunfan wanted to recruit them into the Imperial Palace, Sha Peng and the others hesitated for a moment before agreeing. It was obvious that they were worried about Jiang Lingxiao, but they probably still agreed on account of their mentor, Jeang Yuanbin.
Following that, Chu Yunfan looked for the original top three in Yunning District, Yu Xinyuan and the other two, but the three of them tactfully refused in the end. It was obvious that they had heard about the match between Chu Yunfan and Jiang Lingxiao.
Chu Yunfan sighed and let it go. Human relationships were unpredictable, but that was all. Although they were friends to a certain degree, it was not enough for them to help Chu Yunfan fight against Jiang Lingxiao.
Chu Yunfan was not discouraged. At the very least, with Gao Hongzhi, Sha Peng, and the others, the prestige of the Imperial Palace was starting to take shape. There was no rush to recruit others.
In the end, the strong were the most respected in this world. If Chu Yunfan could not show enough strength, no one would come and join him no matter what he said.
The most important thing now was to upgrade his equipment. After the battle with Jiang Lingxiao, Chu Yunfan’s Shadowless Saber and battle armor had been broken. They could be thrown into the trash heap.
Chu Yunfan was in dire need of an equipment upgrade.
Moreover, Chu Yunfan’s Shadowless Saber and battle armor could no longer keep up with his current improvement. Although the Shadowless Saber was very popular, it was limited to the Energy Refinement Stage. For an Acquired Stage expert, it was not enough. Otherwise, it would not have been shattered by Jiang Lingxiao with his bare hands.
And after having mastered the Imperial Physique, the Shadowless Saber was no longer suitable for Chu Yunfan. Just like when the Monkey King, Sun Wukong, went to the East Sea Dragon Palace to search for treasures, ordinary weapons had been too light. Only the Ruyi Golden Staff had been suitable.
Chu Yunfan was currently in a similar situation. Shadowless Saber weighed only a few dozen kilograms. When it was forged, it was deliberately forged to be lighter because it was easy for an ordinary person to lose stamina after a long battle.
But this kind of weapon could not fully display Chu Yunfan’s strength. With the advantage of having the Mighty Eternal Emperor Method, it would be a pity if he did not head in the direction of heavy weapons.
Chu Yunfan did not have much cash on hand, but he did have 500 million Federation University points that were more useful.
There were many divine weapons on Federation University’s points exchange website. Compared to the ones sold outside the university, they were far more advanced. Not only were there divine weapons forged using the latest technology, but there were also even many divine weapons left behind from the ancient era.
Chu Yunfan scrolled through the website page by page. Suddenly, the introduction of a certain divine weapon caught his attention. It was a huge sword. Its body was wide—three-quarters the width of an ordinary person’s back—its entire body was silver-gray, and there was a huge, bright, blood-red groove running down the middle.
Unlike ordinary swords that are sharp-edged, this giant sword had a blunt and heavy feel,
Chu Yunfan suddenly understood that this was the weapon he had been looking for.
The sword’s name was Ju Que!
