Fang Linyan said,
“I’m not interested in Galleon because I’m leaving soon. The places that I stay prefer items that can be bartered more.”
The bartender bowed politely and said,
“Ugh, that’s fine. The Malfoy Family will definitely come up with something you want.”
Fang Linyan was silent for a while before saying,
“If my guess is right, the Malfoy Family must have come by a long time ago? They asked you to report to them as soon as possible if anybody had any news regarding this? Then you will get a sum of money? “
The bartender smiled,
“That’s right. If I’m not mistaken, the current head of the family, Mr. Cavendish, will be here soon. Might you need a quiet room to speak to him?”
Fang Linyan replied,
“Thank you for your kindness.”
5 minutes later,
Cavendish sat in front of Fang Linyan.
At this time, the 2 of them sat in a hidden room inside the bar.
This was a middle-aged man in his forties. He seemed quite meticulous with his appearance. His blonde hair was combed back neatly. His face showed signs of haggardness. His cheekbones were flushed to an abnormal shade of red, probably caused by lung disease or long-term alcoholism.
After he sat down, he bowed slightly arrogantly to Fang Linyan, appearing polite but indifferent, then he said,
“I’m so sorry to keep you waiting here. I’ve heard that you have accurate news about my son?”
For Cavendish, he didn’t intend to make this trip, as after the family issued a bounty, many brought news. Unfortunately, they all turned out to be fake or irrelevant news. Because of this, the family also gave severe punishments once the news turned out to be fake. These people were all taught an unforgettable lesson.
It was just that Cavendish hadn’t heard any news about his son for 8 months because of this. But the fact that there was no fake news was even more terrifying! That’s why even though he felt that this might have been a futile trip, he still rushed over!
This was also the root cause of his indifference.
Fang Linyan replied,
“Yes, I can certainly tell you that the news I bring is accurate. However… you might not like the news I bring, and might even feel like I shouldn’t have appeared here, so I hope that you can stay calm.”
Cavendish stayed quiet for a while before taking a deep breath. This meticulous looking middle-aged man finally showed a hint of fatigue,
“He had disappeared from our lives for 27 months. At first, I lost sleep every night…”
“But now, I feel like I’ve begun to get used to it. I’ve even thought of all the worst news possible. There must be an ending to this! By now, I admit that I hold no more fantasies in my heart. I just hope to know what happened. “
Fang Linyan said seriously,
“Mr. Cavendish, I came to see you at great risk. If this leaks out, I may die at any time!”
“That’s why, next, I will prove the authenticity of the news I’ve brought. But I also hope that you can restrain yourself and stay seated where you are. Please don’t force me into difficult situation. If you can agree with my terms, we can continue this conversation. If not, then I will leave. “
Cavendish nodded slowly,
“Okay, I promise you.”
Fang Linyan stood up slowly, then turned his back. When he turned back around, he was holding the Wailing Robe that he retrieved from the private space.
At the exact moment that the Wailing Robe appeared, Cavendish immediately opened his eyes wide in shock. He started shaking when he saw the Wailing Robe that Fang Linyan held in his hands. In less than 3 seconds, Cavendish stood up, exclaiming in shock,
“You, what are you holding in your hands! It resonates with my bloodline!!”
Once Fang Linyan heard Cavendish’s words, he knew that he had achieved his goal. He immediately put it away, saying,
“Sir, please calm down and take a deep breath. I have already told you that I didn’t come with good news.”
Cavendish closed his eyes. After a while, he smiled miserably,
“No wonder we couldn’t find him. The person wasn’t doing it for the ransom, but for Colin’s talent!!!”
Fang Linyan responded,
“I arrived in London 3 days ago. I have never been to England before. 3 hours after I got off the ship, I was involved in the incident of the Westminster Abbey…”
“Then, I had a conflict with a bastard in Diagon Alley, and the guy stalked me with blood leech black magic. The goblins at Gringotts realized this, so I killed him using his plan. “
“That’s how this robe got into my possession. You can find someone to question about it. Mr. Cavendish, but I’m telling you this much to explain a very important detail, which is that I had nothing to do with Mr. Colin Malfoy’s death. On the contrary, you could say that I avenged him in some way!”
Cavendish gave Fang Linyan a deep look, then he replied,
“I will find someone to verify what you said.”
Fang Linyan then responded seriously,
“I welcome your verification, Mr. Cavendish. Otherwise, how would I have the courage to stand in front of you now? I do feel regret and sympathy for Mr. Colin Malfoy’s death. However, this robe is the spoils of my battle, so if you wish to take it away, you have to pay a price for it.”
Cavendish nodded slightly,
“The promise that the Malfoys gave at the time is still valid, but I don’t have that many liquid assets on me right now. I can only pay you 4,000 Galleons for now, but in a week, you will receive the rest of the money.”
Fang Linyan shook his head replying,
“I’m sorry, the Galleon is of no use to me. Moreover, I’ll be leaving London soon to return to my hometown, so the best thing I want is magical equipment or a magical book!”
Cavendish said lightly,
“No problem, come and meet me tomorrow.”
Fang Linyan stated simply,
“Sorry, Mr. Cavendish, I am but a trivial stranger. The Malfoy Family, on the other hand, is a well-known pure-blood family throughout the whole of Europe. Your family has almost as much power as King George. I’m already taking a risk to trade with you.”
“Moreover, the dark wizard that I killed has a strong organization backing him up. We won’t be able to keep my meeting here with you for long. I’m sure they’ll most likely be crazily looking for me to seek revenge.”
“So, Mr. Cavendish, I can only give you half an hour. I’ll leave as soon as the time is up!”
“Also, you wouldn’t think that I killed a dark wizard alone? I have several companions looking out for me in the dark. If anything goes wrong, they will notify me immediately. My power alone might be insignificant compared to the Malfoys, but it still is more than enough to destroy a robe.”
“I think you don’t want such a devastating thing to happen, do you?”
Cavendish’s hands trembled slightly. Those familiar with him would know it was an expression of anger, but he still forced himself to calm down his emotions and replied lightly,
“Fine, I can still send a few letters out, right? You can even check the contents of the letters.”
Within less than 5 minutes, a house-elf suddenly appeared outside the door, then it walked timidly toward the table, put the items in its arms on the table and snapped its fingers to disappear.
Immediately afterward, it began to appear outside the door non-stop and repeated the process.
In less than 10 minutes, Fang Linyan realized that there were 6 items on the table.
Among these items, there were magical equipment and books that met his requirements, as well as jewelry, precious crafts, and so on.
His eyes gleamed, then he checked them hastily and selected 3 items. He nodded and said,
Then he handed the Wailing Robe to Cavendish.
Cavendish nodded, then waved his hand indifferently to let Fang Linyan take the items and leave, then he held onto the Wailing Robe tightly as muscles on his face trembled.
Within 10 seconds of obtaining his son’s remains, this seemingly mature middle-aged man collapsed in an instant. He laid on the table and let out a hoarse cry that raised goosebumps as he held onto the Wailing Robe tightly with his right hand. This sound was haunting!
Fang Linyan stood up, bowed slightly, and said sincerely and deeply,
“My condolences, Mr. Cavendish.”
Then Fang Linyan walked out toward the magic fireplace, disappearing into the rising flames.
When Fang Linyan reappeared, he had come to Diagon Alley again.
Looking at the endless stream of people in Diagon Alley, Fang Linyan finally let out a long sigh. He couldn’t help showing a happy smile. He couldn’t wait to play with the items he just got.
It turned out that there was an item among the 6 that Cavendish offered in exchange that resonated with an item on Fang Linyan’s body as soon as it was presented. It was the Ironwood Branch that Fang Linyan had obtained before!
The item that resonated with it was a strange leaf that Cavendish presented.
The leaf seemed to be carved out of emerald greed jade. Its surface was beating with the luster of life. The veins and texture of the leaf were faintly visible and seemed lifelike… It was also frozen in a block of crystal, the sides were gold-mounted as the shelf. It looked like a very precious piece of handcrafted ornament.
However, after this peculiar leaf appeared, it resonated with Ironwood Branch. A green light was emitted from both of them at the same time.
Of course, only Fang Linyan could see this scene.
Note: Domestic goblin > house-elf, turns out Bone was a house-elf
TL: Resonate with Ironwood Branch and a green leaf? Tango?
