Old Vico replied with a bit of a grim expression,
“This letter was taken by Fernand! Did you kill him?”
Fang Linyan immediately smiled disdainfully,
“Do you think I can kill him?”
Old Vico growled,
“Then what is this all about?”
Fang Linyan simply raised a finger and said,
“2 bottles of Felix Felicis. Give me 2 bottles of Felix Felicis and I’ll tell you all about the whole incident. If you’re not willing, that’s fine too, just act as if I’ve never been here. By the way, my companion is right outside, preparing to leave with me. If anything were to happen to me here, he will set fire to the shop first, then call for the law enforcement immediately!”
Old Vico took out a bottle of Felix Felicis immediately from under the counter and threw it to Fang Linyan, then he threw 50 Galleons out and said,
“I only have 1 bottle of Felix Felicis here! Take these 50 Galleons as a deposit. Come back in 3 days and I’ll give you the other bottle.”
Although Fang Linyan said he wanted 2 bottles, it was only an opening price. He was well prepared for the other person to negotiate, so he expected to only receive one bottle. He never thought that the other person would add on another fifty Galleons. Of course, he accepted it with no hesitation and threw the letter to Old Vico,
“You knew that I had a conflict with Fernand in this store before?”
Old Vico replied,
Fang Linyan continued,
“This guy’s mentality is not normal. I don’t know when he did he cast tracking black magic on me. It was called blood leech or something, that’s what he said himself, then he stalked and plotted against me.”
Old Vico didn’t speak, but he also knew Fernand’s character very well. He knew that what Fang Linyan said was probably true, especially about the blood leech tracking technique. It was black magic that Fernand modified, and it was also considered one of his signature spells. He nodded slightly and asked,
“So what happened?”
Fang Linyan added on,
“It’s obvious, in the end, I was no match for him. This guy’s acid arrow restrained the abilities of the alchemy machine that I summoned. But my self-protection abilities are still pretty good, so he can’t do anything to me for a while.”
“But it was at that moment, a person appeared. He dressed in formal wear, with blond hair swept back neatly. He seemed to be poised. Once he appeared, he unleashed an onslaught of attacks on Fernand. Maybe he saw the conflict that I had with Fernand previously, so he didn’t give me any trouble.”
When speaking about this, Fang Linyan noticed that as he was describing the attacker’s appearance, Old Vico’s eyes clearly showed a look of fear. He knew who Fang Linyan was talking about.
Then Fang Linyan said,
“I noticed that when Fernand was confronting the blond man, he secretly hid something while the man was not paying attention. So when Fernand fled and the blond man went after him, I took the thing that he was hiding, which was this letter.”
Having said that, Fang Linyan shrugged, turned around, and left,
“That’s all I know. Good luck, Old Vico. If you have nowhere to go, you are welcome to come to Kama Taj in the Himalayas to look for me. I’ll treat you to some 1574 puree wine! It’s brewed from the cool and crisp holy water from the Ganges, bye-bye! “
Old Vico snorted and waved his hand.
When Fang Linyan left, he also especially paid attention to Old Vico’s movements because he was worried that this old guy might be backstabbing him. But instead, he saw in the corner of his eyes that this guy pulled out a huge luggage bag and hurriedly stuffed things into it. Fang Linyan smothered a smile forming on his lips as he now knew that this guy was too busy fleeing for his life.
Then Fang Linyan headed directly to Gringotts… This was his main purpose of coming here.
After reaching, Fang Linyan immediately started walking back and forth on the stairs that could detect magic about 6 times. It was until even the guards couldn’t bear to watch him anymore and told him not to cause trouble there, then Fang Linyan was finally satisfied and nodded.
Then he thought about it for a while and asked someone to look for Mr. Vincent Fran to ask him if he was interested in a very romantic rendezvous with 10 Galleons.
Mr. Vincent Fran immediately appeared in front of Fang Linyan at an astonishing speed. Driven by deep friendship, he patiently did a full body check for Fang Linyan and confirmed that he didn’t have any more tracking spells cast on him this time.
Indeed, this was Fang Linyan’s purpose. As the saying goes, one should always be guarded against others. Especially toward behemoths like the Malfoy Family. Their history must have been filled with filth and blood while they grew in power. He couldn’t exclude the possibility of anything Cavendish Malfoy might do.
However, Fang Linyan still didn’t know enough about the magic in this world, so it was impossible to be guarded against completely. So under these circumstances, the heavily guarded Gringotts could be trusted as these short goblins were well known for their worship and obsession with gold. They would do their best to protect customer’s wealth.
After confirming that there were no dirty tricks played on him, Fang Linyan rested in the private guest room. These little shorties would show hospitality and enthusiasm to anyone who gave them Galleons. Fang Linyan, who was extremely exhausted, fell into deep sleep while leaning on the sofa.
6 hours later, Fang Linyan woke up again. Although this kind of sleep was not enough to refresh his spirit, his stamina and energy had also recovered by about 70-80%. After all, it was the digital body of a young adult, which put him at double the advantage.
He snapped his fingers and a female goblin waitress walked in immediately. It was said that she was very good-looking among the female goblins, but Fang Linyan couldn’t see that there were any differences between her and the male goblins. After all, the Goblins’ aesthetics viewed small breasts as beauty…
“Sir, what can I help you with?”
Fang Linyan asked,
“What time is it now?”
The female goblin hesitated for a moment and said,
“Are you asking about the time of Knockturn Alley or the time of the muggle world?”
Fang Linyan said,
Female Goblin replied,
Fang Linyan nodded,
“Very well, thank you for your service.”
Then Fang Linyan threw out 3 Sickles and said,
“I’m a little hungry, can you get me some food? I’m craving something piping hot right now, and those adorable sweet stuff.”
The generous tip made the goblin waitress very happy because tips went to herself while the food and drink provided for guests were counted on Gringotts’ public account.
Soon, the waitress brought Fang Linyan a big pot of delicious carrot-stewed lamb chops!
This was the most delicious meal Fang Linyan had eaten since arriving in London. Of course, for him, it would be even more perfect if he had half a bowl of ginger vinaigrette and two kilograms of raw garlic…
This pot of lamb chop must have been stewed for a long time. The meat on the lamp chops wobbled and melted as soon as it entered his mouth and fell off the bone in a sip. The carrots absorbed the soup to the fullest and tasted amazing.
This meal completely swept away Fang Linyan’s exhaustion. He slumped on the sofa, then threw another sickle to the goblin waitress, expressing his appreciation for the food that she brought to him. Then, he said that he wanted to rest for another hour before leaving on his own and didn’t want to be disturbed.
This was what the goblin waitress wished for since he was the only customer in the area she was in charge of. This meant that she could take the opportunity to slack off.
The goblin waitress hoped that every day would be like today with generous tips and easy work!
After the waitress left the room and closed the door, Fang Linyan took out the Ironwood Branch and the peculiar leaf from the private space, and he naturally got the prompt,
“The 2 items you hold have a similar peculiar aura, do you want to synthesize them?”
“Friendship prompt: 3000 common points are required for synthesis.”
A ray of light dazzled Fang Linyan’s eyes, then he realized the two items were shrouded in a layer of dark green light. Since he couldn’t see what was going on, he could only wait.
Just when Fang Lingyan was beginning to worry that it would take hours to synthesize, like the Gaze of the Ancient Gods.
In the end, the dark green light lasted about ten seconds before dissipating. In front of him was a light green branch about 3 inches long. There was a tender green leaf on it. Just by looking at it, one would feel alive.
When Fang Linyan touched it with his hands, he found that the branch was also wrapped up by a transparent substance. The texture felt like a crystal but also like thin ice, making it impossible for humans to directly touch it with their fingers.
The prompt for this new synthetic item also popped up on Fang Linyan’s retinas,
Teldrassil’s New Shoot (Tier 2) (If you have similar items, you can continue to synthesize to upgrade the tier, but this item can only be synthesized to Tier 3 at most)
Place of Origin: Darkshore
Equipment Rarity: none
Material: Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen, World Force
Required Conditions: None
Equipment Location: Backpack
Equipment Special Effect: Strength +2, spirit+2, other attributes are still +1
Active Special Effect: [World Tree Healing], this new shoot has magical power. Whenever you travel between planes, it can absorb energy from it and store it. Each time you travel, you can absorb 2 points of energy. It can only absorb up to 5 points of energy. When you are in danger, you can choose to activate N points (N=1-5) of energy to heal.
Each point of energy will immediately restore 30 HP and 30 MP to the target. It has an independent CD, and it will not put the rest of the healing spells and healing potions into CD.
Every time you use [World Tree Healing], you can only use this ability again after 60 minutes (if you still have energy points)
Evaluation: When the towering giant tree was engulfed by the raging fire, the winds of the whole world let out sounds of sorrow.
Inscription: May Elune be with you!
TL: Hmmm, after defensive equipment, he is getting hard to kill now, but the energy is a bit hard to get though.
