Chapter 412 Is This Fang Qiu?
Everyone was in shock on the Wulin online forum.
Although from the beginning everyone expected that the mysterious man could confront the Baoyi Auction House, now when this did happen, they all felt incredible.
People were even dumbfounded as they found that the mysterious man defeated Yin Laoguai on the List of Martial Superiors.
As for them, what the mysterious man did was unbelievable.
Baoyi Auction House, which was ranked in the top 10 in China, was a large auction house with international popularity. Yin Laoguai even ranked among the top 1,000 on the List of Martial Superiors a long time ago. He was an eminent figure in the martial arts world.
No one would expect that John Doe who was only a second-class Martial Superior was able to defeat the powerful figure.
While everyone was in shock, the practitioners on the spot started to post on the Wulin online forum.
“John Doe won!”
“John Doe didn’t only take out the evidence that Baoyi Auction House robbed the Earth Treasures of him, but also defeated Yin Laogai, smashed the auction house, and even sold the Earth Treasures in front of the staff of the auction house.”
For a moment, people who were at the auction house started to tell what had happened.
The martial arts practitioners on the Wulin online forum were all stunned and started to exclaim.
“Damn, he beat the sixth-class Martial Superior with one move?”
“How can he be so powerful?”
“Baoyi Auction House, I remember while they were advertising on the forum, they claimed that the reason why they chose this name was that they wanted to tell the world that they would always put the sellers’ interest in the first place. And they would strive for maximizing the sellers’ interest. Well, look at what they did now. They robbed things of the sellers. Seriously?”
“Those are just bullshit. You’d better think about how to save your own lives first, Baoyi!”
“What a piece of shit, you want to enter the martial arts world with that attitude?”
“As an auction house, how can you be so insidious?”
“You guys deserve it!”
“I didn’t dare to bring it up before, but I can say it now. I got a piece of jade by chance and was contacted by Baoyi Auction House. They offered to help me sell it. However, as soon as I arrived in the capital, the jade was snatched. Although it was not a Heaven or Earth Treasure, it was also sold about three million. Moreover, the auction house selling the jade was Baoyi Auction House. Apparently, this auction house can not be trusted.”
“What, they even robbed the jade?”
“I finally know how this auction house made its fortune. All the money they made was taken from the sellers they worked with.”
“Isn’t that outrageous?”
“This kind of auction house should be closed!”
For a moment, as all kinds of comments were buzzing around the forum, the reputation of the Baoyi Auction House became worse.
In the meantime, people had been wondering how powerful the mysterious man was.
It was incredible that he suddenly appeared on the List of Martial Superior.
Now he even made it into the top 1,000.
No one could believe that this just happened.
Today, John Doe actually raised his ranking again, raising from 989 to 812 at an incredible speed.
There was no doubt that nobody could ever do this in the martial arts world.
With the ranking soaring again, people were getting more and more curious about the mysterious man’s actual strength.
Was he really a second-class Martial Superior?
When the auction was over, Fang Qiu and He Gaoming left the auction house.
Coming out of the auction house’s building, Fang Qiu said, “When I get back to Jiangjing, I’ll find you.”
“Master.” Looking at Fang Qiu, He Gaoming smiled slyly and asked, “This is about three million yuan. Aren’t you afraid that I might take it away?”
“You can try,” Fang Qiu said solemnly.
“I’m just kidding. Why so serious?” He Gaoming beamed.
However, Fang Qiu just left before he knew it.
He Gaoming took a taxi to the airport, and his cell phone rang on the way.
It was Li Ji.
“Knock, knock…” Fang Qiu quietly returned to the hotel. As he just changed his clothes, someone knocked on the door.
“Who is it?” he asked and then opened the door.
It was a youth who he didn’t know.
“This is a notice.” The youth handed him a card and turned to the next room.
“Notice?” He closed the door and looked at it confusedly.
It was a notice from the program group of the Young Physician of Huaxia Competition.
There was only one sentence on the card.
It said, “Tomorrow morning at ten o’clock, the program group will hold a meeting in the hotel banquet hall to announce the recording of the program the day after tomorrow.”
Except for that sentence, there was a small map marking the location of the banquet hall on the card.
“There are 340 people from 34 provinces. Of course, they need to hold the meeting in the banquet hall.” Fang Qiu shook his head and chuckled.
Fang Qiu took a bath and went to bed.
The next day, he got up early and did some exercises in a nearby park.
Fang Qiu and Jiang Miaoyu then went out to have breakfast together.
At 9:40, two of them headed for the banquet hall.
Actually, it wasn’t hard to find the hotel’s hall. It was on the first floor and on the back door.
Because Fang Qiu had found the hall before, he took Jiang Miaoyu to the hall quickly.
Only when they arrived at the banquet hall did they finally realize the huge capacity of it.
As soon as they walked in, Fang Qiu saw that there were 35 round tables arranged in a circle around a platform in the center of the room.
Now, almost all the round tables were full.
There were 10 people at each round table as if what they did at a wedding. One table was able to fit a provincial team.
“Fang Qiu, this way.” Standing at a round table near the central stage, the only student from the University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine got up and waved to Fang Qiu and Jiang Miaoyu.
As a result, all the people in the banquet hall turned around as they heard him calling out to Fang Qiu. They all focused on Fang Qiu.
“Is this Fang Qiu?”
“I heard he was really awesome. He gets full scores on every test.”
“Sure he was. He was invited to the show before the competition even started.”
“Well, he’s rather handsome.”
People started talking about Fang Qiu.
With all eyes fixated on Fang Qiu, there was envy, doubt, recognition, and disdain.
Some of them, however, were special.
At a round table at the farthest place from the central stage, a young man with a bookish look on his face stared curiously at Fang Qiu, his big eyes gleaming with curiosity.
After staring at Fang Qiu for a while, the young man asked the man next to him, “Is he Fang Qiu?”
“Yes, Master Gu is interested in him?” the man asked.
“Huh.” The young man laughed and looked away from Fang Qiu.
“Fang Qiu looks so ordinary.”
At another table, a young man who looked a little more mature with a beard, frowned and muttered, “Is he really so impressive?”
Hearing what he said, the man next to him said, “Mr. Chen, the competition will start tomorrow. You’ll see what he is capable of by then. By the way, you are from the Chen family of Luoxi. I’m sure you would not be intimidated by this kid.”
“Don’t underestimate your enemy.” The young man shook his head and looked quite sedate.
“Ha-ha, there he is. Is that Fang Qiu?”
Not far away, a young man who looked mellow with a small head kept laughing.
“Could you please stop laughing, Li Sanxiao?” A girl next to him was frowning. She seemed a little impatient.
Li Sanxiao nodded. He withdrew his gaze after taking a closer look at Fang Qiu, looking rather serious now.
At the other table, a cold-faced woman stared straight at Fang Qiu. Although they were far away, she also looked at Fang Qiu from head to toe.
“Leng, are you interested in him?”
Beside her, a man who had always fixed his eyes on this woman turned to take a look at Fang Qiu and then looked at the eyes of the woman next to him. He raised his eyebrows immediately, asking unpleasantly.
“He’s better than you,” the woman said nonchalantly, then looked away.
The man froze, and his face darkened.
Most people present knew these four people.
They had attracted many people’s attraction on Weibo because they were the people who entered the competition with full scores like Fang Qiu. Moreover, they were from four prominent families.
They were: Gu Shaoyu from the Gu family in Jiangdong city.
Chen Ziju from the Chen family in Luoxi city.
Li Sanxiao from the Li family in Huainan city.
Leng Wenzhuo from the Leng family in Jiangbei city.
When the four first entered the hall, they were as much in the spotlight as Fang Qiu.
Although people didn’t know the real strength of the four people, no one dared to question them, just because they had a strong family behind them. People tended to believe that the people from these four prominent families must be powerful.
Except for these four, there were four others, watching Fang Qiu in the dark.
“Fang Qiu?” In a corner, a young man in a hat with long hair, looking like a woman from behind, smiled at Fang Qiu walking to the table. He felt so confident about himself.
“This is Fang Qiu?” Another young man with a buzz cut glanced at Fang Qiu. “Genius doesn’t look like that.”
Then he turned around without taking one more look at Fang Qiu.
“This time, my master let me come alone. It’s clear that he wouldn’t interfere no matter how much trouble I would make.” On a table next to Fang Qiu’s, a young man in ripped jeans and a red hoodie shook his legs and looked at Fang Qiu with a gentle smile and coldness in his eyes.
As they walked to their table, Fang Qiu kindly pulled out the chair for Jiang Miaoyu. He started to look around as Jiang Miaoyu seated.
He looked at the eight people who had just stared at him, then sat down with a smile on his face.
The banquet hall was filled with the sound of discussion.
People always stated that no one would be the best in literature, martial arts, and medicine. Although people present were all decent people in the medical field, they were here for the competition after all. It was normal that they wouldn’t think that they were weaker than anyone. Therefore, there was hostility in everyone’s eyes.
