Even in a state of hunger, Fang Linyan could still taste the fishy smell in the bean soup. The cold and hard bread and bacon were also a tough test for his teeth. Only the newly fried fish was acceptable, and that was under the premise that Fang Linyan specially requested it to be fried for another minute.
After eating in a hurry, Fang Linyan took out the silver key, immediately chose to summon a treasure chest and opened it.
“You got Equipment: Wailing Robe”
“You got a special item: Twisted Soul Stone”
“You have acquired an important item: An Opened Letter.”
“You got 2200 common points and 1 potential point.”
At this time, although there was a huge silver treasure chest in front of Fang Linyan, only contractor or contestant could see this thing. Everyone in the restaurant seemed to not see it.
Even so, Fang Linyan still felt rather uneasy, so he quickly kept the box. Then, he pretended to close his eyes to rest and began to check the specific attributes of the newly acquired items.
The first thing that Fang Linyan inspected was the undershirt that looked like a vest. The garment seemed to be made of genuine leather, which was comfortable to the touch. It was purplish-red.

An Opened Letter
Item Rarity: Story Item
Explanation: A powerful black magic protects the contents above.
Explanation: This opened letter contains some intense tales about the Death Eaters. It is to be believed that there are a lot of people in Diagon Alley who will be interested in this stuff.
Looking at the things that fell, Fang Linyan sighed with regret.
He originally thought that Fernand should drop good magical items. Now that his scholarly title had been upgraded, his MP was almost 200 points. He could learn some good magic.
But here comes the problem!
The things that Fernand dropped were really good items and were also magical items. The key was that they were useless to Fang Linyan. They also couldn’t be directly converted into instant combat power!
Moreover, these things were illegal. If he sold them at Diagon Alley, he feared that he would be reported. If people from the Ministry of Magic saw them, they would confiscate them in a heartbeat. Not to mention that they might hold even him accountable for having forbidden items.
Now it seems that the only use of these things… is to take them back to Noah Space R300’s trading square to sell them?
Damn! Fang Linyan wasn’t willing to wait until then. As a mercenary, he might not be able to go to the trading square, not to mention, this Wailing Robe had very big limitations!
That was very few people who wanted this black magic buff. Those who wanted it would offer a sky-high price, but when would they appear?
If there wasn’t the limitation of buffing black magic, people would fight over this item.
Unfortunately, there were no if…
Not only that but also the plot item “An Opened Letter” was the same, the only people interested in it were the Ministry of Magic and those who had hatred for this organization.
Fang Linyan didn’t want to deal with the old-fashioned Ministry of Magic because he already had a shady background. He wouldn’t pass the interrogations at all. Not to mention when he was chatting with Robbie, he mentioned that he had a very bad impression of the Ministry of Magic. He felt that they were a group of rotten and stubborn bureaucrats. Although there were people in it who wanted to do good things, they could only go with the flow.
He remembered clearly that he saved the passengers on the plane in World 811, but in the end, he was locked up by the official FBI and tortured to extract a confession.
As for the people who hated the Death Eaters — Was Fing Linyan supposed to go around Diagon alley promoting it? If that was the case, either the black magicians or someone from the Ministry of Magic would notice him first before he managed to sell it off.
At this point, Fang Linyan noticed awkwardly that he tried his best to kill Fernand, and he had indeed benefitted from it. But in the end, the items dropped were troublesome like hot yam, giving himself a headache.
No, there must be a way…
After repeatedly examining the loots, Fang Linyan gradually focused on a line of words, and his eyes suddenly lit up,
“Yes! The seller knows his audience! People who like it would pay a sky-high price for it. Now the problem is that it is difficult for me to find someone who likes it. Well, this information is useful. I’ll utilize it properly!”
Soon, Fang Linyan went to Leaky Cauldron. After all, if he wanted to inquire about things, he must go to a place like a bar.
At this time, Leaky Cauldron was much more lively than the last time he came. Fang Linyan was surprised when he walked in. There were at least more than 20 tables of guests chatting and drinking. There was the sound of Scottish bagpipes, and 2 white magic gloves serving its purpose of delivering meals. The atmosphere inside was full of nostalgia.
Surprisingly, the people at each table were far away from each other. The sense of privacy was still sufficient.
Fang Linyan clearly remembered that the last time he came to this bar, the area inside was about 200 square meters. Now it seemed that it was more than 2,000 square meters. It should be the effect of space magic in it.
He came to the bar, knocked on the table, threw a Galleon and said,
“Give me a glass of gin. Ugh, I’d like to ask another question if you’re free.”
The bartender nodded,
He quickly poured Fang Linyan a glass of liquor, then he snapped his fingers. Instantly, Fang Linyan felt that the sounds beside his ears were filtered out as if he had come from a noisy bar to a quiet forest.
Although the drinker next to him was still laughing wildly and slapped his companion on the shoulder, Fang Linyan could only see his moving mouth and spittle, but he could not hear any sound.
The bartender smiled,
“It’s just a little trick to mute sound to make sure no one can hear our conversation. Man, I remember you, last time you came here to find out how to get to Diagon Alley.”
Fang Linyan nodded,
“En, yes… I came here this time to ask about one thing: was there a child recognized with great talent that went missing or died recently during the past few years?”
The bartender nodded and replied,
“En, there were not 1, but 3. There was the youngest son of the Lucian Family, Colin Malfoy of the Malfoy Family, and a child named Jawen.”
Fang Linyan was stunned,
“So, which of them has the initials V.K?”
The bartender raised his head, looked into Fang Linyan’s eyes, and said,
“You should be talking about Mr. Colin Malfoy, his nickname was V.K. Poor Mr. Colin disappeared 2 years and 3 months ago. When he disappeared, he was 8 years old. At the age of 3, he already showed marvelous talent. At the age of 5, he was considered to be on par with the founder of the Malfoy Family, the third minister of the Ministry of Magic, Gart Malfoy!”
Hearing this news, Fang Linyan expressed no emotion in his expression, but there was already a surge of ecstasy in his heart.
Yes, he found his previous blind spot!
The person who was most eager to have the Wailing Robe wasn’t a black magician, but the poor family of the child who was made into a horcrux!
Now it looked like he might be directly involved in a searching mission.
Fang Linyan said,
“I suppose, but the Malfoy Family may not like to hear this news. Because the fact that the child is lost still brings them a glimmer of hope, while the news I bring will destroy their last hope.”
The bartender nodded and replied,
“Well then, congratulations to you. The Malfoy Family offers a reward of up to 5,000 Galleons for specific information about this child. If someone can lead them directly to the whereabouts of Mr. Colin Malfoy, then the sum would be 30,000 Galleons.”
TL: Maybe he can get a powerful spell too?
