“Uh… Ellen has been performing great in the shop, and I was thinking about giving her a promotion. However, bringing a customer to the manager’s office is strictly against the rules of the organization, and she should be punished according to the code written by Mr. [Old Man].” As the head manager of this shop, Kane upheld the principle even though he was facing the mysterious ruler.
Fei nodded in satisfaction, and his impression of this manager improved even more.

Since he had already expressed his intentions, a smart person like Kane understood it, and he would execute it well. The principles couldn’t be broken without punishment, but Grace Ellen was going to be rewarded as well. It seemed like after a small penalty for her mistake, she was going to be promoted.



-In the grand hall on the first floor-

It was late into the night, and Talon City’s night market had reached its peak. The magic lights made it seem like daytime, and more people were on the street. It wasn’t an exaggeration to say that people’s elbows and shoulders were rubbing against each other tightly.

Right now, this weapon shop got to its busiest hour.

While Grace Ellen introduced various weapons to the potential customers half-heartedly, she was thinking back to that mysterious and handsome young man. Even though they met briefly, that young man’s figure was already sealed into this girl’s heart.

As she turned around and looked at the stairs repeatedly, she thought to herself, “More than 40 minutes have passed. What is that handsome young man talking with the Manager about? It has been so long already!”

Ellen felt like that young man had magical powers. His starry eyes and bright smile were enough to make any inexperienced girl fall for him.

Ellen had already fallen deep into the ‘trap’ in such a short time.

From a little beggar who lived on the street and couldn’t even eat food regularly, she had become the best saleswoman in the most popular weapon shop in Talon City. Perhaps this transformation was nothing in others’ eyes, but it was life-changing to Ellen. Her poor and low-class life when she was younger somehow gave her an ultra-sharp instinct, and this instinct allowed her to judge and sense strangers accurately during the first encounter. It was this instinct that allowed her to capture the potential customers’ needs and successfully bring them to the correct weapons.

But today, her sharp instinct made her sense the ethereal and celestial aura of that young man, and she fell for that man’s presence.

As an old employee of the shop, she knew her action of bringing that handsome young man to the Manager broke the rules, and she was going to be fined accordingly. However, she didn’t regret doing so at all. If she went back in time and could get the chance to decide again, she would still choose to bring that handsome young man onto the fourth floor.

Perhaps everything was determined by fate.


Just as Grace Ellen was feeling unsettled, a series of loud and chaotic shouts sounded from the direction of the gate. Then, one of her female co-workers gasped.

While the people who were looking at the weapons in the shop all walked to the two sides, more than a dozen warriors in red light armor already charged in and kicked a saleswoman to the ground. Then, they started to curse and smash around.

Behind these warriors, there was a thin and bald old man, a muscular man who was more than two meters tall, and a few military officials in uniforms.

“Them again? They are pushing it too far! They are here to cause trouble again!”

Grace Ellen was looking at that thin and bald old man. He was Glazer, the owner of another large-scale weapon shop.

One year ago, Glazer’s business, [Blade-Washing Shop], was the largest weapon seller in Talon City, and Glazer was one of the most influential figures in the city as a result. However, this man was vicious and greedy, so his shop had a lot of shady practices and cheated and bullied the customers.

Soon after, [Cauldron-Casting Shop] that was supported by the [Letter Office] came to Talon City. The superior service, top-tier quality, and fair prices instantly allowed this new shop to gain popularity quickly. In just a short time, it surpassed [Blade-Washing Shop] and became the No.1 Weapon Shop in Talon City.
Of course, old fox Glazer was jealous and envious over this. He had been operating in Talon City for many years, and he wasn’t willing to be squeezed down by this new force. Therefore, he used many methods to affect [Cauldron-Casting Shop]’s business, and the new shop lost a lot of revenue. In fact, even a few employees were injured during the process.

However, the people of [Blade-Washing Shop] still came here aggressively; it was clear that they were up to no good.

“Nina! Go and get Manager Kane!”

Grace Ellen quickly said to one of her co-workers who was in a state of panic. Then, she gritted her teeth, suppressed her fear, and walked toward those warriors who were smashing the shop forcefully.

She wanted to delay and possibly stop these fierce warriors before Manager Kane got here.

After about 40 minutes, Fei already got all the information that he needed.

Just as Fei was about to get up and leave after declining Kane’s offers of accommodations, a series of footsteps sounded outside the door, and a series of rushed knocking came next.

Before Kane could tell the person outside the door to come in, a girl who was in the store uniform rushed in while panting. Her face was round like an apple, and some cute freckles could be seen on her face.

“Kane… Manager Kane, please come down! That… That old fox Glazer is here to cause trouble again! Some of our people are injured…” This girl with freckles said in panic.

Kane frowned and cursed in his mind, “What the f*ck is going on? So many things are happening.”

However, he didn’t dare to make any decisions while Fei was here, and he looked at Fei with an awkward expression.

“Huh? It seems like we have quite a lot of enemies. Let’s go and look. Who dares to cause trouble here?” Fei smiled and walked downstairs.

Kane heaved a sigh of relief, wiped off the cold sweat on his forehead, and walked behind Fei.

When he was with this young ruler, he was sensing an enormous pressure all the time; he never felt this way when he was facing the two legendary leaders, [Old Man] and [Young Man].

“However, since the ruler is here today, we might be able to solve the issue with Glazer who is a sly and vicious fox, eliminating one of the headaches of [Cauldron-Casting Shop] once for all!”

That round-faced girl with freckles followed behind them quietly, and she was wondering why Manager Kane who was quite powerful in the city was so respectful and a bit fearful toward this handsome young man.

Soon, the three of them came to the first floor.

While they were walking down the stairs, Kane used the most concise words to tell Fei the entire story.

Right now, the grand hall on the first floor was packed with people, and most of them were curious customers who wanted to see drama. Since most of them were fearless warriors, they didn’t mind the bloody fight scenes. Also, they all heard about the direct and hidden fights between [Blade-Wash Shop] and [Cauldron-Casting Shop], so they gathered here to watch the show.

In fact, even the street outside the shop was filled with people.

Slap!

Right after the slap, a girl screamed in pain, and an arrogant shout sounded, “You are just a dirty worker! How dare you stand in front of me and talk? F*ck off! Tell that damn old Kane to get out here! You guys, don’t just stand there. Smash everything! Let everyone see what kind of trash that [Cauldron-Casting Shop] is selling!”
