Chapter 108 — An Old Friend from the Past
“He said to pay in installments?” Bai Yunxi asked Bai Yunjin.
Bai Yunjin nodded and said, “Yes.”
“What did father say?” Bai Yunxi asked.
Bai Yunjin smiled awkwardly and said, “Father said he wanted to ask the old man’s opinion about this matter.” It was the first time his father had dealt with Ye Fan, and he seemed to be frightened.
“Then did he say how much down payment he is willing to pay?” Bai Yunxi asked.
Bai Yunjin: “…I didn’t ask that.”
Bai Yunxi frowned and looked at Bai Yunjin, and said dissatisfied, “How could you not ask such an important question!”
Bai Yunjin said with a bitter face, “It’s my fault.”
Bai Yunxi saw the name on the phone and said, “I’m going out for a while!”
“Ye Fan’s calling?” Bai Yunjin asked.
Bai Yunxi nodded, “Mmm”.
Bai Yunjin’s face twisted for a moment, with a feeling of depression blocking his heart, unable to rise and fall.
Bai Yunfei walked in and said, “Yunxi is gone?”
Bai Yunjin nodded and said, “Yes!”
“This guy, Ye Fan, what kind of mesmerizing soup did he put into Yunxi’s head? It’s ruining our third brother!” Bai Yunfei crossed her arms and said angrily.
Bai Yunjin: “…”

Bai Yunxi drove to Ye Fan’s villa, and Ye Fan happily welcomed Bai Yunxi into the house.
“You came just in time. The hot pot I made just came out. What do you like to eat? I’ll put more!”
Bai Yunxi: “…”
Bai Yunxi looked at Ye Fan who was busy and asked, “Did you go to see my dad?”
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Yeah! Your dad doesn’t have any courage at all, he has to listen to your grandfather, he’s also a big man, and he still listens to the old man’s words, how can he be so unassertive? Fortunately, your dad has money, otherwise he would be easily looked down upon for being such a wimp.”
“Don’t you have to tell me when you go to see my dad?” Bai Yunxi asked.
Ye Fan smiled brightly, but he didn’t hear Bai Yunxi’s tone of finding fault, “You are so busy, just leave this kind of trivial matter to me, anyway, you must marry me.”
“Why do I have to marry you?” Bai Yunxi asked coldly.
“If you don’t marry me, you will die. Even ants and crickets fight to live, people should cherish life even more!” Ye Fan puffed out his cheeks, looked at Bai Yunxi, and said solemnly.
Bai Yunxi clenched his fists, “Why am I going to die…”
“Your body of ice marrow is about to explode, look at that room, I carved a fire gathering array there, if the cold qi breaks out, you stay in that room,” Ye Fan said.
Bai Yunxi asked with a gloomy face, “I’ve already started to cultivate, will it still break out?”
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Yes, this can’t be avoided.”
Bai Yunxi: “…”
“You want to pay a down payment, how much are you going to pay?” Bai Yunxi sat down at the table and asked while eating hot pot.
Ye Fan blinked and said, “I have almost a billion in my hand now, how about a down payment of one billion first?”
“Don’t you know that the down payment for buying a house is 30%? You only want to pay 10%, the risk is too high, who would be happy to make a deal with you?” Bai Yunxi said angrily.
Ye Fan scratched his head and said, “Then let me make some more money. Yunxi, apart from the installment payment, I think of something better!”
“What?” Bai Yunxi said with great interest, feeling that what Ye Fan was about to say would not be anything good.
“Get on the bus first, then buy the ticket!”
Bai Yunxi: “Dream on!”
Ye Fan blinked and said sullenly, “Don’t get angry so quickly! Let’s discuss it…”
Bai Yunxi looked at Ye Fan coldly and said, “Shut up!”
“Someone from a special team came to me today,” Ye Fan said.
Bai Yunxi turned his head to look at Ye Fan and asked, “What did that person come for?”
“Of course it’s because I’m a talented person, they want me to join the team!” Ye Fan said with a bright face, “However, the treatment on their side was not good, so I refused it. What a joke, they want to invite a talent like me, they have to give me one billion a year! That guy actually only wants to pay me a monthly salary of 20,000 yuan a month. The medicine I take a day costs tens of thousands of yuan, a monthly salary of 20,000 yuan, that’s to let me eat nothing.”
Bai Yunxi: “It’s a little less…”
“It’s so annoying to have no money! My wife doesn’t want to marry me, so I need to make more money,” Ye Fan sighed.
“Do you have any plans for tomorrow?” Bai Yunxi asked, changing the subject.
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Yes.”
“What?” Bai Yunxi asked.
“I’ll take a look at Liang Xin and see if I can find out the origin of the spiritual stone in her sister’s hand,” Ye Fan said.
“Why don’t you ask Liang Rao directly?” Bai Yunxi asked.
“Huang Shifeng had an accident. She was considered an accomplice and was implicated. If I want to find her, I can only go to prison,” Ye Fan said.
Bai Yunxi pondered for a while, and said, “Liang Xin has scandals all over the sky now, and you are still a public figure. Don’t go into this muddy water, I’ll ask for you.”
Ye Fan nodded and said, “That’s a good idea! I’m not very good at dealing with women myself.”
“I browsed the memory of that Gu Master before, and I know a few of his strongholds. If I have time, I’ll have to go check it out. In fact, that guy is quite capable and seems to have cultivated a lot of elixir.”
Ye Fan secretly said: The Gu Master he met before has a good talent for raising Gu. A pity he wasn’t cultivated by some sects in the cultivation world! In this world, he died when he was only less than a hundred years old.
Bai Yunxi: “That Gu Master made a lot of money?”
Ye Fan nodded, full of joy: “That guy raked in a lot, and now it’s all mine.”
Bai Yunxi: “……”
Ye Fan’s phone rang, Ye Fan answered the phone and asked, “Young Master Cai, is something wrong?”
“Young Master Ye, how is my car?”
Ye Fan frowned and said, “That car is in the suburbs!” Ye Fan drove to the suburbs. Cai Zhenjun’s car ran out of gas, so Ye Fan parked the car on the side of the road and took a taxi back with Bai Yunxi.
“Young Master Ye, do you know that car is now famous?”
Ye Fan: “…”
“Someone used a dash cam to record the car flying into the air and then disappearing. This guy even put it on the Internet, and there are a lot of comments on the Internet, saying all kinds of things. Someone found out that the car was mine, and kept asking me what’s going on.” Cai Zhenjun’s tone was very worried, but there was a strong excitement permeating this worry.
Ye Fan rolled his eyes and said, “It’s just a flying car. What’s the big deal, why make such a fuss?”
Cai Zhenjun nodded and said, “That’s right, that’s right!”
After Cai Zhenjun put down the phone, he said to Cai Shuai with a beaming expression: “Big brother, my car is now famous, give me two million, I won’t sell it. My car is in the suburbs now, you find someone to drive it back for me. After that, I will drive that car to pick up girls, it will definitely be beneficial!”
Cai Shuai rolled his eyes, “That’s the only thing you have in your mind? How did that car even manage to fly?”
Cai Zhenjun shook his head and said, “I don’t know! Young Master Ye has many methods. Who knows what’s going on?”
Cai Shuai: “…”
Ye Fan was sitting in Bai Yunxi’s office and took out a large box, which was full of jade pendants.
“What are you doing?” Bai Yunxi asked.
“Make money! No local tyrants have come to ask me for help recently, so I have to take the path of small profits but quick turnover. Look! There are 2,000 jade pendants here. I will sell them at a price of 5 million each, won’t it all be settled?” Ye Fan said smugly.
Bai Yunxi rolled his eyes and said, “Where can you find two thousand idiots who are willing to buy jade pendants with you for five million!”
Ye Fan nodded and said, “This is a problem! Just take it slowly!”
Bai Yunxi: “…There are some clues to the source of the spiritual stone you want me to find.”
Ye Fan raised his head and asked brightly, “Really? Where did the spiritual stone come from?”
“It was sold by tomb robbers, it should come from an ancient tomb!” Bai Yunxi.
“Ancient tomb?” Ye Fan asked while sitting on the sofa.
Bai Yunxi nodded and said: “Yes, it is said that Liang Rao bought it from a tomb robber. And because it is neither gold nor silver, the price is not very expensive. Afterwards, Liang Rao also thought about it. In the past, she tracked the whereabouts of the tomb robbers, but in this line of business, there are three caves of cunning rabbits, noses are smarter than dogs, and they run away when they sense the slightest disturbance, and Liang Xin has no clues.”
Ye Fan sighed and said, “Forget it, Yunxi, it’s time to get off work, let’s go have dinner together!”
Bai Yunxi shook his head and said, “No, Grandpa just called me and asked me to go home immediately after getting off work. There are valuable guests.”
“Valuable guests? How valuable? Are they more valuable than me?” Ye Fan asked angrily.
“Much more valuable than you, it’s Daoist Master Xu Yuanqing,” Bai Yunxi said.
Ye Fan rolled his eyes and said, “That half-assed person!”
Bai Yunxi said unhappily, “That’s a Daoist master!”
Bai Yunxi privately felt that Ye Fan’s ability might be stronger than Xu Yuanqing’s, but Ye Fan was definitely not as famous as Xu Yuanqing. As the saying goes, if people are young, they will lack reliability. Between Ye Fan and Xu Yuanqing, those rich and powerful people will inevitably trust Xu Yuanqing more.
Ye Fan rolled his eyes and said, “I am also a master!”
Bai Yunxi: “…”
“Okay, master, you can go back by yourself.”
Ye Fan blinked and said, “Yunxi, how about you take me to see that Daoist Xu?”
Bai Yunxi: “…” Not long ago, Grandpa waved the broom to beat Ye Fan out. At this time, it would be inappropriate to bring Ye Fan back!
“No!” Bai Yunxi said.
Ye Fan puffed out his cheeks and said, a little dissatisfied, “Why not?”
Bai Yunxi frowned and said, “You have a bad mouth. What if you offend someone?”
Ye Fan stared at Bai Yunxi with wide eyes, full of innocence, and said, “When did I have a bad mouth?”
“You’ve always had a bad mouth…”
Ye Fan looked at Bai Yunxi, a little depressed, and said, “Yunxi, don’t be so heartless, then fine, I won’t speak.”
