42 Well, I Tried.



The Fire Crow Kingdom, Royal Capital.

The sun that was orange just a few hours ago, shining warmly upon the lands of the Fire Crow Kingdom has become a yellow inferno. Its sunlight rained down upon the earth like the breath of hell.

Just like the Sky Lion Kingdom, the Fire Crow Kingdom was a small kingdom within the domain of the Heavenly Demon Sect and also under the rule of the Ling Family.

At this moment, within the prosperous and bustling streets of the royal capital of the Fire Crow Kingdom, two young men and little black fox strolled around leisurely.

Unlike the oldest one, the youngest one who looked not even a year over ten, was like a country bumpkin as his eyes were looking around everywhere and seemed to be surprised and fascinated by even the smallest thing.

He had a little black fox lying on his right shoulder. The little black fox seemed as though it was asleep as both of its eyes were tightly shut.

"Young master, are we going straight to Royal Palace of the Fire Crow Kingdom to meet with the king." asked the oldest one in a respectful tone.

" Maybe later, I am starving. Let's look for a restaurant and tried those mortal foods again." answered the youth with an anticipating look on his face.

From the look of the youth's face, one could clearly tell that he had developed a great liking to the mortal food he was talking about as his mouth couldn't stop watering just by mentioning it.

Like most of you probably know, these two people were none other than Ling Chen and Fang Lan.

It's been four days since they parted ways with the second prince of the Sky Lion Kingdom and Ma Tu in Kapoti Town.

Ling Chen was naturally aware that his journey in the mortal world would not be too peaceful. However, he didn't think that it was going to affect the people around him until the event in the forest four days ago, he realized how dangerous it was for anyone to be closed to him.

If the people that attacked him that time wanted to kidnap any of the people around him, it would have been very easy.

Though he had smoked them out by leaving the Inn, it was still very dangerous and risky. Luckily, they didn't care about Fang Lan and the others.

Though he's very young and didn't know much about the world, he wasn't stupid either. He knew that no matter how much he tried and yearn for it, it's impossible for him to have a normal life. No matter where he goes, trouble will always follow. His very existence was a thorn in many people's eyes and they won't stop until they've killed him.

However, before he left them. He had given Ma Tu some medicinal pills, Strenght Enhancing fruits as well as a letter of recommendation just in case any member of his family wanted to enroll in the Heavenly Demon Sect.

Upon hearing Ling Chen's answered, Fang Lan immediately nodded in agreement. As Ling Chen's first follower, Fang Lan was absolutely loyal to him and never questioned his decision.


Ever since Ling Chen saved him that day, he'd already considered himself as Ling Chen's sword.

Apart from him, he won't follow the orders of anyone, not even the Heavenly Demon venerable.

He had also silently made an oath to give his life and die for him. As long as he's alive, no one in this world, be it the emperor or a deity, will touch a single hair on his young master without going through him first.

After walking for a few more minutes, they finally found a restaurant. It was a magnificent restaurant with luxurious decorations.

It was a two-story building, and at the top of the building was banner fluttering in the winds with the words " Night Fragrance" written on it. Anyone could sense an aristocratic aura from this place.

After they went inside the restaurant, they realized that it was already full.

It was noon, and this was the busiest time of the day for the Night Fragrance Restaurant. Many rich and famous people wearing expensive clothing kept arriving.

" Let's go to the second floor." Fang Lam suggested after he realized that there wasn't any empty seat on the first floor.

But as Ling Chen and Fang Lan were about to climb up the stairs, one of the restaurant's waitresses quickly rushed up to them in order to prevent them from going to the second floor.

"Sorry two young masters, you'll need a reservation in order to go to the second floor." Politely explained the waitress with an apologetic look on her face.

"Then what about them." Asked Ling Chen as he watched a handsome young man going upstairs accompanied by two beautiful young girls.

The young man walked on the second floor as though this place was his own house and no one dared to stop him to ask for his reservation.

"He is the young master of the Tang Family, one of the four great families in the Royal Capital." replied the waitress with a hint of envy and respect in her voice.

"So you are saying that my young master's status is inferior to that Tang Family's young master of yours." Said Fang Lan with a hint of anger in his voice.

If it wasn't for the fact that Ling Chen had asked him to stay low-key and don't cause any trouble, he would have already smashed the whole restaurant into smithereens.

How dare those weak mortals dared to compare his young master to a group of ants!

" It's ok Fang Lan. We do have a reservation, it's inside that small bag." Ling Chen said as he threw a small bag of gold coins to the waitress.

Over the past few days, Ling Chen realized how the people in the mortal world valued and worshipped gold coins, something that was worthless in the Heavenly Demon Sect as they used True Qi stones and other treasures to trade.

Some of them would treat anyone as though they were their own ancestors if that person gave them a few gold coins. He had used this worthless piece of metal known as gold coins to get out many sticky situations and get preferential treatment.

Just as expected, as soon as the waitress saw what was inside the small bag, her eyes shone brightly as though she has just stumbled upon the secret of immortality.

Staring at the pieces of gold coins in the small bag, the waitress couldn't help but stuttered as she said." Is this.....this for me?"

Her monthly salary was only a few silver coins and the wealthy people that came here to eat only gave a silver or two as tips, she had never made that much money in tips. That ten pieces of gold coins were enough to cover a year of her salary.

The waitress was so shocked that she couldn't help but take another look at the two young men in from her again as though she just had found a hidden treasure.

"Yep, now can we go to the second floor. I am starving." Ling Chen asked again with a slight smile on his face.

Though Ling Chen was strong, he didn't like to cause trouble or fight over some petty things. If a fight or a problem could be avoided, then he would avoid it. He only fought and killed people unless he had too.

"Sure, certainly two young masters!" replied the waitress as she regained her senses.

" Follow me, please." Said the waitress with a huge smile on her face before he respectfully led them to the second floor.

Although the second floor said to be only accessible by a reservation, it was not all true. As long as one had enough money, the second floor was open to them.

After they arrived on the second floor, the waitress led them to a private room.

" What can I get for you, two young masters." Politely asked the waitress after Ling Chen and Fang Lan had sat down.

" Bring us all your most delicious and popular dishes as well as your tastiest wines." Ling Chen said with a look of anticipation on his face.

" Yes, two young masters." answered the waiters before she left the room. For someone that could tip ten pieces of gold coins on a whim like that, she wouldn't even be shocked if they asked for all the meals on the menu because they had the money to back it up.

Soon, the dishes were sent up.

The table was filled with fragrant dishes, enticing the appetite.

Without wasting any time, Ling Chen quickly dug in. In the Heavenly Demon Palace, he was raised eating all kinds of spiritual fruits and pills. He had never tasted any real cook food. Most of the food he had eaten in the Palace was mainly focused on the energy intake rather than the taste.

While Ling Chen was going hard and wolfing down the dishes on the table, the door of the private room suddenly opened before a middle-aged man accompanied by the same waitress that served them walked in.

The middle-aged man stared at Ling Chen and Fang Lan and said with a smile. " Two Sirs, I am sorry but I'm gonna have to ask you to dine downstairs. We have an esteemed guest today and all the rooms on the second floor are taken. Don't worry, your meal will be in the house."

Listening to the middle-aged man, Fang Lan suddenly exploded in anger and was about to pounce towards the middle-aged man like a cheetah, however, he was stopped by Ling Chen.

As for the waitress, she lowered her head in shame. She had an apologetic look on her face as well. Even though she tried to convince the owner that they were rich paying customers, the owner still wanted to kick them out of the second floor in order to make room for his guest.

"Esteemed guest, I understand. Just give me a few more minutes, I am almost done." Ling Chen said as he tried to finish his meal.

" Sir, I need the room now. I can't let the guest wait any longer by letting you finish your meal." Replied the owner with a look of impatiencece on his face.

"Either you leave now or I will be forced to throw you out." Added the owner. He knew almost all the high-level people within the Royal Capital as they all dine within his restaurant. As such, he knew who to not provoke.

Furthermore, he could tell that these two people didn't come from a powerful background from the clothes they were wearing.

Listening to the owner's response, Ling Chen's eyebrows furrowed a little. He was clearly displeased by the owner's character.

" Well, I tried. Fang Lan, you have my permission to do as wish now." Said Ling Chen with a regretful look on his face.
