After the old patriarch had sat for a while, he suddenly stood up and wanted to go out to get some air.
“Are you going to find Ye Ling? I suppose you would want to ask him about your father?” Di Fuyi was holding his arms and standing nearby. His two sentences managed to stop the old patriarch for a second.
“Yes!” Since this matter had developed to this stage, Hua Zhichun wanted to know what happened to his father. Ye Nu definitely knew something about it.
“Do you think he will tell you?”
“I… I just want to know the whereabouts of my father. I don’t care about anything else.”
“Just because you don’t care, it doesn’t mean that he doesn’t care. If you go and find him, he will know that you recognize him. Since he used to be a slave, do you think he wants to let people know about his past? Do you think he will keep you alive until tomorrow?”
“There is nothing else to say, If you still want to live, then pretend that you do not recognize him. Stay here safely for a few days and look after your people. Regarding your father, I will help you investigate, and I will give you a fair explanation.” Di Fuyi interrupted him.
After the adventures over the past few days, the old patriarch had been extremely trusting in Di Fuyi. He tried to calm himself down. He was a smart man and fully understood Di Fuyi’s intention.Ye Nu seemed to be a different man from the servant who was once loyal to him. Being reckless here would cost him his life.
Once the clan leader was calmer, Di Fuyi shared the insights from his day; Gu Xijiu’s heart sank a little. There were now more than 100,000 people in this city, including 80,000 who lived in poverty. They were mostly servants who had to work for 15 to 16 hours a day, yet they did not have enough to eat and could not affordproper clothing. They lived in the slums. The rich in the city could merely scold and beat them. Even if they killed the poor, no one would dare to say anything.
The other 20,000 people had spiritual power above level three. Most of these people needed to go out and hunt beasts daily to get a spiritual crystal. Every time they went out, they needed to get at least one gem. Otherwise, they were not allowed to enter the city again. If someone was seriously injured outside, they might as well stay there because Luo Hua City did not accept injured people.
Those with level four spiritual power were soldiers. They would be given a house and have a better lifestyle than those less powerful than them.Those with level six of spiritual power would be the guards of the owner of the city. They would be given servants, beautiful women, and a mansion. They could live a luxurious life.
All these people owned shops, and each of them was unique. It had both necessities and luxury goods for the people. As they were all monopolies, the prices were extremely high. Even with the savings earned after working for a month, the luxury items were still out of reach to the common people.
There were many foreigners in the city these years. Many of them were high in spiritual power and were very capable. Of course, these people were unwilling to be the subordinate of the city’s owner. Many of them wanted to replace him, especially because many people hated him.However, no one could touch him, because he made the wizardry barrier that blocked the blood rain and blood bats, and no one else could replace it!
