Chapter 13: The Late Wu Mo
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Seeing this, Jia Wei sighed and immediately took out a few colorful banknotes.
“Hold on, they aren’t the only ones who accepted the design order!”
Just as Jia Wei was about to pay, someone suddenly opened the courtyard’s main gate. A young man wearing a gray zipper walked in covered in dust!
He was the one who had spoken.
A few of Treasure Pavilion’s customers were standing in the periphery to watch the show, and they were the first to see him. They looked at the travel-worn and plain-dressed young man with astonishment. They felt that he did not look like a blacksmith but more like a laborer at the dock.
Upon hearing the voice, Jing Yuan and Han Cheng immediately turned their heads. When they realized that it was really Wu Mo, their expressions changed slightly.
Based on their understanding of Wu Mo, he was not as strong as before. It was impossible for him to forge an equipment that met the requirements, so Wu Mo should not have had the audacity to come.
However, Wu Mo was already in front of them, and he seemed very confident. That made Jing Yuan feel a little dazed.
It was as if the person before him was not the useless Wu Mo, but the genius who had shone with confidence back then!
“How is this possible?!”
Han Cheng looked at the plainly-dressed Wu Mo in surprise. He could not help but clench his fists.
Five minutes ago, he had confidently told everyone that it was impossible for Wu Mo to come, but not long `after, the latter actually arrived. It was a slap to his face!
Both of them had some animosity toward Wu Mo at that moment, but the receptionist, who was standing nearby, immediately breathed a sigh of relief.
She was the receptionist who had assisted Wu Mo the other day, Yu Qing.
She had been nervous due to Jing Yuan’s words earlier. As a Four-star blacksmith, he would definitely not slander others so easily.
Therefore, it was likely that Wu Mo’s situation was as Jing Yuan had described.
However, Treasure Pavilion had clear rules. If a blacksmith accepted an order from a receptionist and disappeared after receiving the materials, the receptionist would have to bear a lot of responsibility and might even be fired.
Therefore, Yu Qing was worried that Wu Mo would disappear and she would end up being cheated.
After all, she was in charge of Mr. Jia’s order. So, Yu Qing’s heart almost turned cold when she heard what the two Four-star blacksmiths, Jing Yuan and Han Cheng, said.
Fortunately, Wu Mo was there now, and the worst-case scenario did not happen!
“I’m sorry, but I arrived a little late because of something urgent,” Wu Mo said a little embarrassedly after he walked up to several of them.
Jia Wei scrutinized Wu Mo from head to toe, and his heart could not help but thump. The young man had been so anxious that he did not even wear his exclusive blacksmith clothing. It was likely that the equipment he had forged would also be crude.
Hence, he did not have high hopes for Wu Mo at all. He only wanted to quickly finish the process so that he could leave.
However, the receptionist, Yu Qing, felt that Wu Mo had some skill. Only she knew that the latter had a short 24 hours to work after accepting the mission.
Unless a blacksmith had fairly good skills, it would be very difficult to forge something.
As a high-level receptionist in Treasure Pavilion, she had seen blacksmiths bring a big lump of iron to complete their transactions several times. Most of them had not been able to make it in the given time, so it was tough for them to finish the processing.
“I didn’t expect you to actually come. What a surprise.”
Jing Yuan turned his head to look at Wu Mo. He subconsciously took a step back, afraid that Wu Mo would dirty his blacksmith clothes.
Han Cheng was still brooding while standing nearby. “You didn’t even bring a bag. You didn’t come empty-handed, did you?” he asked sarcastically.
“Hurry up and bring it out so that everyone can see what kind of equipment you’ve made.”
As soon as Han Cheng spoke, the onlookers immediately turned their attention to Wu Mo. .
Even the two appraisers beside them looked at Wu Mo.
Wu Mo did not waste any time. He reached into his coat pocket and took out the equipment that he had put his blood and sweat into, the silvery-gray Interspatial Ring.
Unfortunately, because he had been in a hurry, he did not have time to polish it. As such, it looked a little ugly...
“Huh? What is that thing?!”
The onlookers were dumbfounded. Some of them could not even see what was in Wu Mo’s palm.
“D*mn, that thing’s too small. Does it really work?”
Not only were the onlookers dumbfounded, but even Jing Yuan, who had been well-prepared, did not expect Wu Mo to take out a dusty ring. Moreover, it did not have any luster at all. It was probably not even comparable to an ordinary ring.
He could not help but snicker.
Han Cheng started to laugh, no longer bothering to conceal his true feelings.
“Haha, I was wondering what kind of Divine weapon it was. Turns out, it’s just a silver ring? That’s it... No way. Is someone really using an ordinary ornament to fool an investor?!”
As soon as Han Cheng said that, the few businessmen who were concerned about their iamge burst into laughter.
Even the children who had gone to school could tell that such a thing could not compare to the Wind Spirit Belt and Light Feather Backpack.
It was a crushing defeat!
“It appears that I’ve been too optimistic...”
Yu Qing could not help but sigh when she saw Wu Mo present a gray ring. She had thought that her eye was good enough for her to not be fooled by such people!
Another receptionist would have seen through him and would not have ended up in this situation.
Everyone laughed continuously. After all, the act of taking out a silver ring for a design order was too common
To them, the blacksmith named Wu Mo was also a talent, at least in terms of humor.
Wu Mo stood straight on the spot. The ear-piercing laughter around him only made him bored.
Seeing that the surrounding people could not see how effective his ring was, he immediately put it on and got ready to demonstrate its effects with his actions.
“Sigh... It looks like there was no need to wait for more than ten minutes.”
After he laid eyes on the silver ring, Jia Wei could not help but sigh in his heart.
The blacksmith had made such an item and had not taken his needs seriously at all. Since the blacksmith did not respect him, there was no need for him to waste any more time.
Thinking of that, he immediately said, “I’ve already decided. I’ll be taking the Light Feather Backpack for this order...”
Jia Wei had already decided in his heart, so he promptly announced the result of his choice.
However, before he could finish speaking, he saw Wu Mo gently wave his hand at the carriage in front of him.
While he felt a little puzzled, he heard a whoosh the next moment, and the goods on the two carriages instantly disappeared on the spot!
Even the wooden bearings on the wagons were gone!
