IGK - Chapter 3.1: Fraud (1/2)
The second day—Entrance to the Wang Clan’s main hall!
“Tell everyone to stop selling financial products in all cultivation towns! Just focus on those for the Zhu Cultivation Town!” Wang Ke instructed one of his subordinates.
“Clan Lord, we’ve been deploying people to all the cultivation towns for a very long time; it’s time to draw the net. It would be such a waste not to do it now! the subordinate said with worry.
“No worries. I’ll become a disciple of the Heavenly Wolf Sect if everything goes according to plan. A simple financial product would be nothing once we have the sect’s backing! I’m not interested in such an unsustainable economic shenanigan. Now, just focus all efforts on managing the affairs in the Zhu Cultivation Town! We must win this fight!” Wang Ke said with a deep voice.
“Yes, sir!” that subordinate said respectfully.
Zhang Zhengdao quickly approached him right after his subordinate walked away.
“Brother Wang, I’ve waited an entire day here. Are you done preparing?” Zhang Zhengdao asked urgently.
Wang Ke had finally agreed to rescue Princess Youyue; Zhang Zhengdao had been in a constant high for quite a while. Still, he began to feel anxious after a day passed, given the time limitations.
“It’s almost done. Come inside and take a look!” Wang Ke said, smiling.
“Oh?” Zhang Zhengdao walked into the main hall; his eyes were wide open.
He saw two ladies standing inside the main hall, their backs facing the two of them.
“Brother Wang, I didn’t know you kept your mistresses here! Haha!” Zhang Zhengdao ridiculed.
Wang Ke took a deep breath and said expectantly, “What are you talking about? These are my cousins. I had them rush here from far away overnight! We need them to rescue Princess Youyue!”
“Them? Rescue Princess Youyue? Are you going to use them to seduce She Tianba to make him release Princess Youyue? I’ve heard that he has eight wives and concubines, and each of them is quite beautiful. Your cousins would have to be of a high level to blend in!” Zhang Zhengdao looked expectantly at the silhouette of the two ladies with glowing eyes.
“Little cousin-sister!” Wang Ke called out.
One of the ladies had a petite frame; she turned around and responded respectfully, “Clan Lord!”
“Uhh?” Zhang Zhengdao’s face froze.
“What do you think of my little cousin-sister?” Wang Ke asked, smiling.
“She’s not bad, but she’s still not on par with top-grade beauties. She’s above average at most, but she can’t be considered very beautiful, can she?” Zhang Zhengdao replied with a frown.
“Beautiful girls are like flowers. They need the contrast of green leaves to emphasize their beauty! Big cousin-sister!” Wang Ke said, then called out again.
Then the other, quite muscular woman turned around.
“Uhh?” Zhang Zhengdao’s eyes grew big; his body shivered.
That big cousin-sister not only had a muscular body; she also had a bold and vigorous face to boot. Her firm and round face, massive mouth, and a faint stubble beard made her look conspicuous and frightening.
“You... You’re a woman?” Zhang Zhengdao asked with eyes wide open and a tingling scalp.
“What are you looking at? Never seen a woman with a beard?” The large cousin-sister glared at him.
That stare was as vicious as that of a tiger ready to pounce. Zhang Zhengdao immediately took a step back out of fear. He almost vomited!
“Don’t worry. My big cousin-sister chose the wrong cultivation technique before, ending up with a lot of male hormones as a result!” Wang Ke said while smiling.
“Clan Lord!” Big cousin-sister also bowed respectfully toward Wang Ke.
Zhang Zhengdao swallowed his saliva and looked at her warily.
Zhang Zhengdao wiped the cold sweat off his forehead as he said, “Brother Wang, this is the rare beauty you mentioned? Your taste is quite unique! I say... She Tianba won’t even dare to raise his head when he sees your big cousin-sister… Seduction? This won’t work!”
“How does my little cousin-sister fare after seeing her big cousin-sister?” Wang Ke asked, smiling.
Zhang Zhengdao took a look at the little cousin-sister and felt that he had escaped from hell and gone back to heaven.
He said excitedly, “Ahhh, now that I look at her, she’s indeed as beautiful as a celestial being! Brother Wang, you are really awesome! Using your big cousin-sister to shock She Tianba first before your little cousin-sister tries to seduce him. This will surely work!”
“What are you talking about? Who said she’s going to seduce him? You think She Tianba is as lustful as you?” Wang Ke said while staring at him.
“It’s not a seduction tactic? Then why did you ask your big cousin-sister to come?” Zhang Zhengdao asked in confusion.
“Didn’t I tell you yesterday? I’m going to make another Princess Youyue!” Wang Ke said with narrowed eyes.
“Make another one? You want your cousin to pose as Princess Youyue?” Zhang Zhengdao exclaimed, clearly surprised.
“You’re right!” Wang Ke nodded.
“But, what good would that do? Your cousin is a fake Princess Youyue, while the one with She Tianba is the real deal. There’s no use having a fake one. The real one is still going to die when the Golden Crow Sect people get here!” Zhang Zhengdao said confusingly.
“You see, I’ll make the fake become the real one, while the real one in She Tianba’s hands will become a fake!” Wang Ke proclaimed confidently.
“You’ll make the real fake, and the fake, real?” Zhang Zhengdao was dumbfounded.
“This is called creating something out of another. We’ll destroy She Tianba’s expected value of the Princess in his possession. As long as he thinks she’s fake, it’ll be a piece of cake for us to rescue her!” Wang Ke said with a deep voice.
“Just like that? Will that work?” Zhang Zhengdao asked doubtfully.
“Didn’t you say that Princess Youyue’s face was always veiled, and that only less than ten people have seen her face? Not even the Golden Crow Sect people have her portrait. Why are you still worrying?” Wang Ke said, smiling.
Zhang Zhengdao looked at the little cousin-sister and said, “But, but... Okay fine. Just do as you say, I will follow your lead. Your little cousin-sister might just manage to pass up as Princess Youyue!”
“Who said that? Little cousin-sister will act as Princess Youyue’s maidservant. The one acting as Princess Youyue is my big cousin-sister!” Wang Ke explained.
“What? Her? Your bearded big cousin-sister… You want her to pose as Princess Youyue?” Zhang Zhengdao asked with wide-opened eyes.
“What are you looking at? Why can’t I pose as Princess Youyue?” The large-sized, bearded woman stared at him.
Zhang Zhengdao’s eyes were as wide as saucers. He felt his request for help had gone awry! Her look! Who would believe that she’s Princess Youyue?You think everyone is blind?
