Chapter 12: Ugly To Me

Qiao Xingnan suppressed his excitement and opened the system interface.

The screen projected in the air, glowing with an icy blue light.
He looked at the system interface, calmed down, and called out, “System.”


The system replied back.

Qiao Xingnan did not talk nonsense, and his first question was whether it would accept the magical beast’s eyes.

This was the first time that System 035 met a host who was selling magical beast eyes to the system.

[System detection…]

[Ding, detection completed, it can be collected]

[Total value of low-level magical beast gray eyes: 1 gold coin]

Qiao Xingnan was stunned, then smiled with delight, “That’s great.”

He had only asked tentatively at first but did not expect that it could really be exchanged.
Buying the eyes was less than a hundred silver coins in total, and the system gave him a gold coin, so he could actually earn quite a lot back and forth.

Don’t look at the small base, this is at least a long-term income.

035 had no idea that Qiao Xingnan was already thinking about being a second-hand dealer to earn his own money.
It looked at the other party’s happy expression and felt a bit guilty.
It was only worth one gold coin, and he was actually so happy about it.
The other party had no idea how pitiful the card pool he had drawn was.

Perhaps because of sympathy, 035 couldn’t resist talking to the other party a little more.

[Here to remind the host, the system has a certain chance to recycle things that are not in the card pool.]

Qiao Xingnan nodded and said a thank you, mentally pondering what he and the system could trade.
The more he thought about it, the more he turned his head to look at the money bag on the table.

A crisp sound rang out as Qiao Xingnan poured a thousand gold coins onto the table, which glowed with a beautiful golden hue under the light.

To be precise, he now had one thousand and four gold coins as well as three silver coins.

Qiao Xingnan laid out his entire wealth on the table.
His golden eyes shone brightly as he looked towards Zero, and his voice filled with joy, “Zero, we’re rich!”

Zero slowly moved his eyes to his master’s money bag, his stiff face had little expression, but joy could be vaguely seen in his eyes.

Zero liked his second master a lot.

For Zero, the weakest and simplest one in the card pool, it was the happiest thing for his master to get what he wanted.

The cold, transparent blue system interface floated in the air.
Qiao Xingnan looked at the system interface, pursed his lips, and looked at Zero again.


He traveled to a different world and had to think hard to find a way to live.
To Qiao Xingnan, the ignorant Zero was his first life-saving straw.

He likes Zero very much and wants him to become stronger, but the problem is that it’s too late now.
The emperor of Arilance will come to the manor the day after tomorrow.

Zero’s upgrade carried uncertainty, and he couldn’t gamble on it or afford to gamble at all.

Qiao Xingnan now desperately needed to improve their chances of surviving.
Only if they got through this difficult time could they consider gambling on the chance of upgrading.

“Zero, I need to use the gold coins to draw a card now.”

Qiao Xingnan pointed to the gold coins on the table and explained to Zero, “We need one more actor to improve our chances of surviving.”

Qiao Xingnan spoke slowly.
Thanks to the fact that Qiao Xingnan had told Zero about their situation every time before, Zero was clear about one thing despite his poor thinking.

They need to draw cards now to live.

Zero nodded.
His face, which did not fluctuate, seemed somewhat solemn, and he knew that this matter was important to his master.

The countdown to the free card draw in the system interface slowly decreased, with twenty-six days left before they could draw a new card for free.

Qiao Xingnan’s white fingers rubbed a gold coin on the table as his eyes moved down to the button for drawing cards.

He took a deep breath, hoping that the card that came this time would be as powerful a helper as Zero.

[Ding, card draw in progress…]

After pressing the card draw button, the thousand gold coins on the table suddenly disappeared.
Obviously, the windows and doors were tightly closed, but Qiao Xingnan clearly felt a wind blowing across his face, and he suddenly became less nervous.

No matter what card is drawn in the end, he will try hard to make the other party fit into his script.

Everything is for them to be able to live well in the other world.

In the next second, the blue light of the system screen changed, and a few lines of clear words surfaced.

[Card: Ster – Human

Race: Human

Grade: R (Level 1)

Equipment: Ebony Cane, Gold-Framed Long-Chain Glasses

Talent: Elegance

Equipped Skill: Fight for Dignity (To be activated)

Note: When you’re older, you love to teach people a lesson.
This is probably the impression that all the people in the Chaos card pool have of him~]

R card! This can be considered a lucky break, right?

Qiao Xingnan was a bit delighted.
He looked at the card’s introduction and blinked.
The talent is elegant, loves to teach people a lesson, and is old.
How come these adjectives are so strange together?

He was going to ask Zero if he knew this card, but just as the words came to his lips, Qiao Xingnan suddenly remembered what Zero had said about his poor card pool life.
He silently shut his mouth and looked at the card’s introduction again.

What kind of skill was fighting for dignity?

Qiao Xingnan’s eyes fell on the skill, and his fingertips tapped the table.
A pop-up window suddenly popped up, so he concentrated and looked at the content of the pop-up window.

[Ster – Human, Equipped Skill: Fight for Dignity (Can be activated at Level 3)]

[Fight for Dignity: When someone insults my dignity, I will lead the charge, and the ebony cane will always serve as the best teaching tool]

Although he didn’t understand much, this Ster’s skills were unclear but useful at first glance.
Qiao Xingnan thought that when he figured out the usage of the skills and added it to the script, it would definitely be a highlight.

However, if he remembered correctly, it would take at least 30,000 gold coins to raise the R card to level 3.

The pressure of money instantly calmed Qiao Xingnan down.
At least for now, it was impossible to activate the skill.

At that moment, a small red dot suddenly appeared in front of his eyes.
Qiao Xingnan’s eyes lit up, knowing that this was a sign that the card figure was coming out.

The red dot of light floated in the air and gradually expanded.
When it was about a person high, the light dispersed.
An ebony cane was the first to reach out from the white mane and made a rattling sound as it made contact with the ground.

A gentle and loving voice rang out immediately afterward, and he asked, “Why is this place so shabby?”

Qiao Xingnan did not expect the other party to begin with this, and the words he was just about to say paused for a moment before he heard the card on the other side continue.

“My master, please forgive my rudeness.” He leaned down slightly, his kind voice full of apology, “The environment here is really ugly to me.
I’m sorry, I desperately want to leave this room.”

“Uncle Ster, please bear with me first.” Qiao Xingnan vaguely felt as though he had been smacked.
He raised his smile, “After all, it’s not in my home, and our status doesn’t allow for nonsense, or else we’ll die.”


Joel and Herrick, who were on guard duty outside the gate, yawned as the cool summer breeze blew through, making them even more sleepy.

There were not enough people at the manor, and there were few people on duty.
They will not be transferred over until tomorrow, so they both need to stay up another night for now.

Joel was so sleepy that he could hardly keep his eyes open.
Suddenly, he saw a red light flashing in the room, followed by a rustling sound.
He snapped to life, waking up Herrick, who was already falling asleep beside him, with a frown, “There’s movement inside.”

Herrick was also startled, instantly losing his drowsiness.
The two looked at each other and alertly went over and knocked on the door.

“Your Excellency, may I ask what you are doing in there?”

“Ka-cha-” The door opened.

The person who opened the door was not the white-robed man or the black-haired man as the two had imagined.

Instead, it was an old man with white hair dressed in a black tuxedo.
Under his gold-framed long-chain glasses, his azure eyes seemed as forgiving as the sea.
At first glance, he seemed like a gentle elder, but unfortunately, the words spoken by him were not so nice.

“Knocking on the door in the middle of the night will disturb our emperor’s rest.
You are really too impolite.”

Joel and Herrick: ???? Who are you?
