Chapter 32: First Customer
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Earlier on, when Lin Yuan had entered the bookstore, he had felt that the renovations were rather classical and stylish. While thinking of his own store, Lin Yuan headed to the Star Web’s furniture and decoration store.
After visiting a few furniture and decoration stores, Lin Yuan made a firm decision not to buy any furniture. This furniture and decoration store sold items that were at least ten times more expensive than the other stores.
He took a look at a white wooden chair that had a price of 5,500 Federation dollars.
Lin Yuan decided not to buy anything. He felt that his little store just had to sell things, while furniture and decorations weren’t necessary.
However, Lin Yuan still planned to purchase an AI robot for automatic selling. The selling price for Elite Usneas and similar feys were all fixed, and Lin Yuan wasn’t planning to give any chance for negotiations. It was better to set a fixed selling price.
As for other superior feys, when Lin Yuan wasn’t in the store, those interested parties could just leave a message with the AI robot. When Lin Yuan came online, they could then converse.
AI robots might not be great, but the store was only starting, and Lin Yuan could easily handle the business. Furthermore, hiring a reliable storekeeper wasn’t an easy task, and it was dependent on fate.
Lin Yuan returned to his store, and just as he was preparing to purchase an AI robot, he realized there was a customer in the store.
There was a young girl wearing denim clothes but wearing a bumblebee hat. She was bending over and carefully observing the two Web-Spraying Spiders in the store.
She would look at one of them and switch over to the other from time to time. She was pursing her lips as though she wasn’t satisfied.
Since there was business, Lin Yuan quickly went over and asked, “I wonder if you fancy any of the two Web-Spraying Spiders?”
It was unknown when this girl had arrived, but it seemed like she had been waiting for some time.
After hearing Lin Yuan’s question, she said to Lin Yuan, “Are you the store owner? Your store actually doesn’t even have an AI robot! I could only wait here foolishly, not knowing when you would return!”
Lin Yuan let out an apologetic smile and said, “My small store just opened today. I didn’t have time to prepare an AI robot.”
The girl looked as though she understood and said, “No wonder. I have been looking for a store that is selling Bronze spider feys recently, but I only found your store today. For a silly store name like Purchase With No Loss, if I saw it previously, it would be impossible for me not to enter.”
Lin Yuan’s smile immediately froze and couldn’t help twitching.
While looking at this bumblebee-hat-wearing girl, who was around his younger sister’s age, why did he feel that this unruly child was asking for a beating?
She must have done too little homework...
The girl felt that she had said something wrong, so she stuck out her tongue and said, “Uncle, what is the price for these two spiders? Don’t set a price that is too expensive! Your store’s name is called Purchase With No Loss!”
Lin Yuan was normally addressed as Young Brother and Little Brother. This was actually the first time he was addressed as an Uncle. However, thinking that this was the store’s first customer and he must provide a smiling service, he endured and said, “The smaller Web-Spraying Spider with long weaving legs awakened the exclusive skill, Adhesive Spider Web. The bigger greenish Web-Spraying Spider awakened the exclusive skill, Violent Venom.”
When Lin Yuan said Violent Venom, the young girl let out an ‘ahhh’ and consciously moved back.
Without anything to lean back on, the girl immediately sat her buttocks on the ground. It just so happened that her bumblebee hat dropped down.
Lin Yuan subconsciously wanted to help and pull up the girl, but when he saw the top of the girl’s head, he immediately slipped out the words, “Braised egg!”
As compared to her fall earlier, she shouted even louder.
The girl immediately picked up the bumblebee hat and wore it on her head. After wearing it tightly, she said, “This is an injury by a Ghost Shadow Bristled Spider and the aftereffects of the treatment. It will be fine after a few months, and it is not some braised egg!”
When looking at the girl’s angry expression, Lin Yuan involuntarily rubbed the back of his head. He was rather apologetic, but he silently thought in his mind, I really didn’t mean it when I exclaimed ‘braised egg’. But all the irritation after being told that the store’s name is silly and being addressed as an uncle has been wiped out.
After hearing the Ghost Shadow Bristled Spider’s mention, Lin Yuan felt that he had heard of someone being bitten by a Ghost Shadow Bristled Spider1, but he couldn’t remember.
Since this girl had received treatment even after getting stung by a Ghost Shadow Bristled Spider, it meant a Healer with a Gold healing-type fey had treated her as soon as she had been stung.
The girl turned around and ignored Lin Yuan as she continued to observe the two Bronze Web-Spraying Spiders.
Lin Yuan saw the situation and immediately asked, “Do you like spider feys?”
The girl responded by jumping up as though she was stung on her injured spot again. “I hate spider feys the most. Who would like a big and hairy bug?”
While speaking, the girl’s mouth sunk down as she added another statement, “But my innate compatibility range is pointing toward spider feys.”
Lin Yuan first felt that it was rather comical that a person who hated spider feys was actually compatible with them.
Immediately after, Lin Yuan was shocked by this girl’s innate talent.
Spider feys were also considered arachnids, and it was a classification that was extremely diverse among insects.
Most of the combat-class feys would have the shadows of an arachnid.
If this girl was compatible with spider-species, it meant that she had plenty of choices when contracting a fey and her direction of development was very extensive.
After taking a closer look at the two Web-Spraying Spiders, the girl shook her head and said to Lin Yuan, “This won’t do. I want to contract with a spider fey that has a strong control ability. The exclusive skills of these two Web-Spraying Spiders are still a little weak. It will be best if I can order Elite/Epic Web-Spraying Spiders. I will surely roll out the exclusive skill, Transparent Spider Web!”
After hearing the girl’s words, Lin Yuan clicked his tongue silently.
The Transparent Spider Web was an extremely rare exclusive skill. It was a skill that wasn’t good when used by itself, but it might produce an unexpected result when used in combination with other feys.
However, in order to roll for a specific skill, it wasn’t possible with just one or two epic-quality Web-Spraying Spiders. If one didn’t have good luck, it might need up to around 10 or 20 spiders.
Just as the girl was walking outside, Lin Yuan pondered for a moment before speaking. “Do you wish to make custom orders for epic-quality Web-Spraying Spiders? I have a method! How many do you need?”
The girl immediately turned around and looked at Lin Yuan warily and said, “Uncle, do you think I am innocent, cute, and easy to deceive? Or do you think you look good, and I will believe you?”
