Luo Yunyang was still determined to keep training, but unfortunately his stomach had already started rumbling with hunger.
Why hadn't the Steel-Scaled Python Meat he had ordered been delivered yet? Luo Yunyang immediately turned to his computer.
"Please visit the Clean Elegant Food House to dine!"
As he read this line, Luo Yunyang couldn't help but stop cultivating. His hunger was really too vicious to resist.
He immediately set his attributes back to normal.
When Luo Yunyang saw his Speed on the adjustment panel, he was shocked. Cultivating the Alert Monkey's Seven Leaps had actually raised his Speed Attribute by 1.3 points.
Even though this wasn't much...
No, it was actually a lot, but he had foolishly lowered his Speed to 3.0, so he had wasted all his effort.
Luo Yunyang grumbled to himself as he rushed in the direction of the Clean Elegant Food House. As he thought about the delicious Steel-Scaled Python Meat he had ordered, he immediately started salivating. He unconsciously picked up his pace.
"Are you Luo Yunyang?" Before Luo Yunyang could reach the Clean Elegant Food House, he was stopped by a group of young people.
They were all dressed immaculately, and judging from their demeanor, there was probably some kind of a hierarchy among them. A young man wearing white, who gave off an untainted vibe, seemed to be the leader of the group.
He didn't say anything. He just stood quietly on the side.
The young man who had spoken was wearing a black pair of trousers. He had a string of pearls in his hands, and his hair was covered in something that gave him an edgy look. One glance was enough to tell that he was a show-off.
Luo Yunyang didn't know them.
This was his first reaction when he saw the three young men. He was currently famished, so he wasn't in the mood to waste any time on these fools.
"What's the matter? Speak fast, if you have anything to say!" Luo Yunyang didn't know them and they hadn't made a good first impression on him, so his tone was a little impatient.
"Luo Yunyang, this is Brother De. You are really lucky. Brother De thinks very highly of you. Congratulations! From now on, you will be one of us."
The young man holding the string of pearls laughed heartily. "Acknowledge Brother De, and I promise that you will never suffer in your life! Besides, Brother De will provide you with lots of benefits. Ha ha ha! Brother De is very fussy when it comes to accepting younger brothers!"
Nothing was free in the world. These young men didn't seem to be up to any good. They had to be hiding something. Plus, Luo Yunyang was really hungry, so he didn't want to waste any more time talking to them. He didn't answer. He just headed in the direction of the Clean Elegant Food House right away.
"Hey, Luo Yunyang! You should be more tactful in the future. Don't f*cking ignore us, unless you want to suffer the consequences! The t.i.tle of the Newcomer King was given to the wrong person! This t.i.tle belonged to Brother De! Have you heard of the Billion Financial Group? Brother De is the heir to the Billion Financial Group. His old man can send you to the heavens with a snap of his fingers. He could also send you tumbling to h.e.l.l as easily. You better learn to appreciate politeness, d.a.m.n you!"
The young man holding the string of pearls got really angry when Luo Yunyang did not even give him a pa.s.sing glance. He pointed at Luo Yunyang haughtily.
The young man in the white clothes did not react, but a tiny hint of impatience flashed across his eyes.
Luo Yunyang had never heard of the Billion Financial Group, but he understood the young men's intentions. It turned out that they were after the t.i.tle of the Newcomer King.
Luo Yunyang might not have cared about any other glorious t.i.tle, but this particular t.i.tle was one that he wasn't willing to relinquish.
A 70% discount was a gargantuan benefit for him.
n.o.body would be able to s.n.a.t.c.h away his Newcomer King t.i.tle.
These guys had said a lot, but all they had actually wanted was to get the t.i.tle of the Newcomer King for themselves.
"Aren't you guys from Chang'an?" Luo Yunyang asked the young man in white.
The look of impatience on the young man's face let his subordinates know that he was extremely displeased.
"We are from Modu. Have you heard of Modu? It's the number one city among the 13 Eastern Cities! Now, be a nice boy and apologize to Brother De. Brother De is broad-minded. He doesn't have the limited amount of knowledge someone like you does!"
Modu, which was the number one city among the 13 Eastern Cities, was considered the economic center of the East.
However, this wasn't something that could sway Luo Yunyang.
"Are you guys unhappy because I became the Newcomer King?" he asked indifferently.
The clean young man frowned slightly and glanced at the young man holding the string of pearls wordlessly.
The young man in the black trousers, who was afraid of the young man in white, huffed. "I heard that you are very fast, Luo Yunyang! You think that just because you are fast, you can be called the Newcomer King? Come on, I will just stand here and let you hit me. Let's see whether you can even touch me! If you can't hit me, then you better hand over the Newcomer King t.i.tle obediently. This position isn't something a poor fella like you can occupy!"
As the young man in the black trousers spoke, Luo Yunyang raised his Speed to 7 and used the Alert Monkey's Seven Leaps in under three seconds.
Slapping noises that sounded like firecrackers rang out in quick succession, fading away even faster. Then, a figure appeared about 10 meters away from the group of young men.
The young man in the black trousers was holding his face. Although he had been prepared, Luo Yunyang's speed had been so fast that he hadn't even had any time to react. Luo Yunyang's slaps had just landed all over his face.
"Brother De, he… He dared hit me!" the young man in the black trousers complained, feeling completely humiliated.
Before he could even finish his words, he froze. Even Brother De, who he worshipped so much, was holding his face tightly in his hand.
There was an obvious handprint on his flawless face!
"You… You actually dared hit me?" The young man in white had apparently never suffered such a humiliation before. He had always thought that the whole world revolved around him.
"You were asking for it!" Luo Yunyang replied rudely with a grin. "If you can't accept it, you can try me again."
The young man in white wanted to rush over to him, but he was held back tightly by his younger brothers. None of them had seen clearly how Luo Yunyang had done this, but they knew that if they kept fighting, the outcome would be unfortunate.
"This isn't over, Luo Yunyang!" Brother De exclaimed as he was dragged away.
He paid an inevitable price for these words. His flawless white face was slapped hard once again.
There were two overlapping slap marks on his face now.
