Chapter 40: The Importance of Connections
Zhou Jiaxin quickly saw the order and responded to Lin Yuan.
However, she couldn’t understand why this customer of hers would need so many inferior energy ores for.
Deep Mountain Elder Lin: “Then I shall thank Big Sister Xin! Does Big Sister Xin have any dragon blood?”
Zhou Jiaxin pondered for a long time before replying to Lin Yuan: “I do have some stock of dragon blood. I wonder how much you need?”
Lin Yuan had been searching on the Star Web and hadn’t been able to find any store selling dragon blood. He vaguely felt that it was impossible to purchase spiritual ingredients with just money and would need better connections.
Deep Mountain Elder Lin: “Big Sister Xin, what is the price for dragon blood now?”
Zhou Jiaxin: “The price of gold-grade dragon blood is 80 Radiance dollars for one drop. The price of platinum-grade dragon blood is 2,000 Radiance dollars for a drop.”
Zhou Jiaxin had already made a decision in her heart to build a good relationship with Lin Yuan. One of the factors was due to her good impression of Lin Yuan during the day. Another factor was because of Lin Yuan’s purchasing power.
Lin Yuan had only visited the store for the first day and had already spent 5 Radiance dollars in a few hours. Such a customer was definitely worth tying down.
Lin Yuan had already given a higher estimation for the price of dragon blood, but he didn’t think that it would actually be so expensive.
If a single drop of platinum-grade dragon blood cost 2,000 radiance dollars, Lin Yuan didn’t dare to imagine the price of a Platinum dragon fey.
In order to activate the rare dragon bloodline in the Spirit-Siphon Goldfish’s bodies when they reached bronze-grade, gold-grade dragon blood might already be enough. If he was lucky, a single drop of the dragon blood would do the trick, but it would be more conservative in preparing three drops.
In regards to his own feys’ evolutions, Lin Yuan wanted to be properly prepared for everything.
When Zhou Jiaxin noticed that Lin Yuan didn’t reply for a long time, she immediately sent another message.
Zhou Jiaxin: “The price I offered to you might be higher than the lowest price in the market, but I can ensure that the concentration of the dragon blood hasn’t been diluted at all.”
When Lin Yuan saw Zhou Jiaxin’s message, he couldn’t help but have a better impression of her.
When purchasing spiritual ingredients, the terrifying thing was to guarantee the spiritual ingredient’s quality. If the spiritual ingredient’s quality didn’t reach a certain standard, when a Creation Master was evolving a fey, it might cause the evolution to fail or an incomplete evolution.
If it was a failed evolution, the process could be restarted. But if it was an incomplete evolution, then certain aspects of the fey would definitely be weakened after the evolution.
Evolution was a gift to life and the most creative process of natural selection in the natural world. Thus, evolutions were never reversible.
It was why the quality of spiritual ingredients played a huge role.
Deep Mountain Elder Lin: “Big Sister Xin, I might order a batch of Normal Spirit-Siphon Goldfish from your store in the next few days. I want the Butterfly Telescope subspecies. As for the dragon blood, we will make a deal when I visit your store on the 27th.”
Zhou Jiaxin: “Don’t you worry. I will pick out all the Normal Butterfly Telescope Spirit-Siphon Goldfish for you. I guarantee that all of them are great-looking.”
When reading that Lin Yuan was preparing to make so many orders, Zhou Jiaxin was delighted. In her heart, she felt that it was the correct decision to build a good relationship with Lin Yuan.
Now that Lin Yuan learned the dragon blood’s price, he started to calculate in his heart. The gold-grade dragon blood’s price was 80 Radiance dollars for a drop, and Lin Yuan required three drops. It meant that Lin Yuan would need to prepare at least 240 Radiance dollars.
240 Radiance dollars wasn’t a small sum for Lin Yuan, but it wasn’t an astronomical amount that he couldn’t collect.
Therefore, Lin Yuan made a plan to earn money.
After receiving the goods from Zhou Jiaxin, Lin Yuan would enter the Spirit-Lock spatial zone and enhance the four remaining Elite X/Flawless Web-Spraying Spiders.
As for the three Normal Spirit-Siphon Goldfish, Lin Yuan was going to place them in the spirit pool in the spatial zone.
Lin Yuan had chosen Butterfly Telescope goldfish because this was the best-selling subspecies among all the Elite Spirit-Siphon Goldfish.
The tea-colored Butterfly Telescope Spirit-Siphon Goldfish were swimming around cheerfully in the spirit pool, and they looked delighted.
It was obvious that the high concentration of spirit qi in the Spirit Lock spatial zone was the best living environment for the Normal Spirit-Siphon Goldfish.
The three Spirit-Siphon Goldfish were just like amber-colored camellias blooming in the depths of the spirit pool. Along with the spirit-locked Elite Spirit-Siphon Goldfish, the four Spirit-Siphon Goldfish gave off a poetry-like feeling to this spirit pool.
In the beginning, the three Normal and one Elite Spirit-Siphon Goldfish were living together nicely in the spirit pool. However, when the three Normal Butterfly Telescope Spirit-Siphon Goldfish wanted to eat the Butterfly Shells, the Elite Telescope Spirit-Siphon Goldfish attacked them.
It started to brandish its tail in the water and lash at the three Normal Butterfly Telescope goldfish.
Although the tail lash’s power might not be great and humans wouldn’t feel anything, when it lashed on the three obviously smaller Butterfly Telescope goldfish, the trio was sent tumbling in the spirit pool. They tumbled for three rounds before gradually stopping.
After a few attacks, even though the three Normal Butterfly Telescope goldfish felt that the Butterfly Shells could benefit them, they still didn’t dare to take a bite.
Lin Yuan burst out in laughter. It was fortunate that this Elite goldfish could protect the Butterfly Shells. Otherwise, he would need to think of a method to isolate the three Butterfly Telescope goldfish.
These three tea-colored Butterfly Telescope goldfish would be able to reach elite-grade within five days. Lin Yuan was planning to put them on sale in the Star Web store when they reached elite-grade, setting a price of 8 Radiance dollars.
Therefore, letting these three Butterfly Telescope goldfish eat the Butterfly Shells would be just a waste.
However, Lin Yuan was rather surprised. These four Spirit-Siphon Goldfish had been living together in the pond at Zhou Jiaxin’s store previously. However, after Lin Yuan’s spirit-locked goldfish reached elite-grade, it actually attacked its previous companions because of resources.
Lin Yuan realized that this wasn’t just the process of natural selection. It was also the survival of the fittest.
It made Lin Yuan understand why strong individuals would grow stronger while weak individuals would have a hard time rising up.
The Elite Telescope Spirit-Siphon Goldfish swam around the spirit pool willfully while the three Butterfly Telescope Spirit-Siphon Goldfish would gather and cower in a corner. They didn’t dare to swim toward the center of the spirit pool at all.
Lin Yuan could vaguely feel that even though the spirit pool no longer had any energy ores, there was still a trace of spirit qi constantly pouring into the Spirit Lock spatial zone.
This was the great effect of breeding Spirit-Siphon Goldfish in the Spirit-Lock spatial zone.
However, the speed of spirit qi being released from the Spirit-Siphon Goldfish and its consumption speed was truly disproportionate.
During this period of time, Lin Yuan had constantly been pouring the 4,000 catties of inferior energy ores into the spirit pool.
For the next two days, Lin Yuan finally enhanced the five Elite X/Flawless Web-Spraying Spiders to Elite X/Epic.
Lin Yuan let out a relaxed breath and stood up to stretch his body. “It is time to hand these custom feys to that braised egg head, Stream in the Cloud.”
