6 Supreme-Grade Spirit Stones. He Was a Distinguished Guest

"One middle-grade spirit stone."

The servant spoke indifferently, not treating Gu Xi like a customer at all. Gu Xi wore shabby clothes, so the host thought that he was poor.

Gu Xi was a bit surprised, "Isn't this just an ordinary iron sword? There isn't any spiritual energy fluctuation on it. That's a little expensive."

The servant looked as if he did not care whether Gu Xi bought the sword or not. He curled his lips and said sarcastically, "Why don't you take a look at this place? It's one of the branches of the Wanxiang Chamber of Commerce! Even a stone here is much more expensive than anywhere else in the world."

Gu Xi felt a little helpless. He did not have enough spiritual stones on him. Where could he get middle-grade spirit stones in such a short time?

[System checking low-grade spirit stones. Do you wish to purify them?]

Hearing the notification sound in his mind, Gu Xi was extremely surprised. He did not expect that spirit stones could be purified! He suppressed the excitement and joy in his heart, "I'll come back later."

The servant watched as Gu Xi left in a hurry. He did not take what Gu Xi said to heart at all. He just thought that Gu Xi was poor and had found an excuse to slip away.

He sneered and said, "If you don't have the money to buy anything from the Wanxiang Chamber of Commerce, wouldn't it be more appropriate to go directly to the roadside stall?"

Gu Xi entered a small alleyway and made sure that there was no one around. Then, he began to purify the spirit stones. In an instant, it was as if more than half of his spiritual energy had been drained. His face was pale as he leaned against the wall to recover.

Although it consumed a lot of his energy, Gu Xi did not care at all. He looked at the ten supreme-grade spirit stones lying quietly in his hand. Colorful lights swirled around it, flickering. Gu Xi felt as if there was a mountain of gold and silver in front of him, and from now on, he did not have to worry about spirit stones anymore.

After resting for a while, Gu Xi went back to the Chamber of Commerce. However, this time, he threw the supreme-grade spirit stones on the table casually as if he was throwing some useless stones.

"Hello, what can I do for you?"

Various servants came up to him one after another. They had enthusiastic smiles on their faces, which was in stark contrast to when Gu xi first came into the chamber of commerce. They were afraid that if they did not show enthusiasm, this customer would slip away.

The servant who serviced Gu Xi earlier would never have thought that Gu Xi would come back with supreme-grade spirit stones. He watched as a big client slipped away from his grasp, and he was so regretful that he wanted to barf.

Gu Xi could not be bothered to argue with them. He said indifferently, "Wrap that iron sword up for me."

Supreme-grade spirit stones were incredibly rare. The currency used here was mostly low-grade spirit stones, and then there were a few middle-grade spirit stones. Top-grade spirit stones were extremely rare, not to mention supreme-grade spirit stones.

The servants realized that this was an extraordinary customer, so they hurriedly called Manager Li to come over. When he heard the whole story, Manager Li walked over with an apologetic smile on his face.

"Please don't take offense at our poor hospitality."

After saying that, he glared at the servant who had been treating him with disdain.

"What did I tell you? Don't judge a book by its cover. Even if the honored guest can forgive you, I will not let this slide. You will go and receive punishment."

As expected of Manager Li, he was very good at pleasing the customer. Even if Gu Xi was angry, most of it had dissipated by now. Not to mention, Gu Xi did not care about this at all. He waved his hand and said, "No worries."

Manager Li saw that Gu Xi's clothes were indeed plain and shabby, but the aura around her was really extraordinary. If he was really an ordinary person, how could he spend supreme-grade spirit stone just to buy a useless iron sword? This person's intentions were definitely not that simple.

He remembered that some hermits or big clans liked to keep a low profile and did not want to attract attention. Manager Li thought about it and decided that Gu Xi must be someone extraordinary who tried to keep a low profile. The smile on his face became even more fervent.

"Honored guests, please take a seat."

In the blink of an eye, Gu Xi found himself seated in the private room. Someone even served spiritual tea, which was a world of difference from the treatment he received when he entered the store earlier. Manager Li saw that Gu Xi did not drink it, and probed in surprise, "Does the tea not suit Young Master's taste?"

One had to know that this tea would only mature after 50 years. A cultivator could drink it to strengthen his body and replenish spiritual energy. It was therefore a rare and precious treasure. Yet, Gu Xi's behaved as if he was drinking plain water.

Manager Li guessed that there was a super force behind this distinguished guest, and did not dare to underestimate him.

Gu Xi said indifferently, "Yes."

In reality, Gu Xi did not like drinking tea at all. However, he did not know that Manager Li's imagination had already run wild, associating him with a powerful force.

Manager Li respected Gu Xi more and more. Even though he was young, he did not dare to underestimate him. He made up his mind to curry favor with him. Even if he could not get close to him, he could not offend him.

"This is the chamber of Commerce's Black Card. It's just a small token of respect. Young Master, please accept it as an apology for those ignorant servants."

Gu Xi took the card from Manager Li. It was very exquisite and small. It was dark, and there was a golden outline of auspicious clouds on it. It was simple, yet extraordinary.

This Black Card was unique to the Wanxiang Chamber of Commerce. It was made of high-quality black crystals. A person with a Black Card would receive discounts when shopping with the Wanxiang Chamber of Commerce. Although it was only a small card, it was worth a thousand gold coins. The people who held the Black Card all had extraordinary statuses or rich family backgrounds. It could be said that it was a symbol of status.

"Thank you very much."

Seeing Gu Xi accept it so readily, Manager Li also heaved a sigh of relief. It seemed that he did not hold a grudge for what had happened just now.

"If Young Master likes that iron sword, I will naturally give it to you with both hands. However--" Manager Li paused, secretly sizing up Gu Xi's expression. "It's just that I see that Young Master's strength is profound. I am guessing that you are here not just for this sword alone."

Hearing Manager Li's words, Gu Xi's interest was immediately piqued. Knowing that he had misunderstood, he simply played along and said, "Manager Li, if you have something to say, just say it."

Manager Li did not keep him in suspense. "As you should know, we have a grade six alchemist under our chamber of commerce. He has recently refined some Marrow-cleansing Pills. When the time comes, you are welcome to come and support us."

Hearing this, a hint of surprise flashed across Gu Xi's eyes.

Marrow-cleansing Pills could be used in the Body Refining, Qi Refining, Foundation Building, and even Golden Core stage to assist in breaking through the major bottlenecks of each stage. It could be said that as long as one had the Marrow-cleansing Pill, breaking through would not be a problem.

It only had a slight side effect. However, this little side effect was usually ignored under the temptation of being able to advance. Therefore, it was extremely popular, attracting many aristocratic families to scramble for it.

Although Gu Xi would not be using the Marrow-cleansing Pill for a while, he wanted to join in the fun. He might be able to use it at a critical moment.

"Alright, I got it."

Seeing that Gu Xi's expression did not change much and did not seem to be enthusiastic, Manager Li thought that he did not know how precious the Marrow-cleansing Pills were.

"Young Master, do you know that this kind of pill uses extremely rare and precious medicinal ingredients? It's extremely difficult to refine. Even a grade six alchemist would only be able to produce one after refining ten thousand pills."
