My Crown Prince Consort Is a Firecracker - Chapter 1562
Chapter 1562: Terrestrial Whale
Before they could walk far, around ten men and women swarmed straight for them with wide smiles.
From their striped multicolored attire, they looked like locals. All of them were smiling like blooming flowers, as if they were looking at… a cash cow!
“Aiyo, these guests from afar look to be extremely capable people.”
“Nonsense, go away! Look at the attire of these celestial-like young men and women. They must not be ordinary people! Otherwise it would have been impossible for them to leave the battle arena without injuries and pass by our market.”
An exceedingly obese auntie shoved past the crowd with the use of her colossal figure.
She cracked a grin and beckoned vigorously toward Qiao Mu and the trio. She asked eagerly, “Lads and lasses, where are you headed to? Is it the closest city, Julu City! Do you need me to lead the way for you? The guidance fee is also very cheap. Five spirit currency will suffice!”
“F*ck, why don’t you just go rob someone!”
“Isn’t that right. Scram out of here! Little Miss, don’t listen to her. Allow me to lead you to Julu City. Three spirit currency will be enough!”
“Two, two spirit currency!”
Qiao Mu, Bai Xia, and company looked at each other in dismay.
Why did they feel like the crowd in front of them were acting like procuresses contesting for business…
“One spirit currency! I will lead you toward Julu City if you give me one spirit currency! I guarantee you will arrive there in time before dusk. There absolutely will not be a mishap.”
The person who spoke was merely ten years old. He had a tanned and skinny figure, but his black eyes were crafty and animated.
“Meng Mai, you punk are unconscientiously cheating people again.”
“Don’t listen to him, Little Miss. Meng Mai this d*mn child is so bad. He must be bringing you to board the terrestrial whale.”
“That’s right. This child truly is evil-minded, specifically cheating guests from the Lower Star Domains.”
“What is a terrestrial whale?” Qiao Mu inquired curiously.
“A terrestrial whale is… a mode of transportation similar to a horse carriage. It can accommodate around thirty people in one sitting! Terrestrial whales can effectively evade thunderbolts when traversing the Thunder Plains, preventing its passengers from suffering even the slightest bit of electric shock.”
“Isn’t it great that it’s swift and convenient.” Before Qiao Mu could speak, Bai Xia spoke up first. “Then we will board this terrestrial whale to head to Julu City.”
“Ha, just by this, it’s obvious that this is your first time coming to Shuntian Prefecture. This auntie here will tell you that you can’t afford to ride that terrestrial whale! Every time you ride, you are charged two spirit currency per minute. The fare isn’t charged according to the distance travelled.”
“Right, right, right. In other words, if you hitch a ride to the terrestrial whale for an hour, ha ha, then you have to pay 120 mid-grade spirit currency!”
“That expensive!” Bai Xia gaped at that auntie that spoke.
“Isn’t that right!” The auntie lifted that tanned and skinny boy that had butted in and set him to the side. She put her hands on her hips and said, “It is still Auntie’s price of three spirit currency that is a bargain. I will lead you through a shortcut and guarantee that I will bring you to the city gate before dusk.”
As the auntie spoke, she bared her teeth in the shape of a smile to show her sincerity.
Yet Qiao Mu brought that tanned and skinny boy over and said, “Lead the way.”
