“Seven days!” Sitting in the taxi back to school, Fang Qiu clenched his fists quietly.
Now, he didn’t even dare to circulate his Internal Qi too much, because the Internal Qi stored in his body was so much that even the slightest move could cause it to explode.
According to the current situation of his suppression, he could only hold it back for seven days at most. He must find the Heaven Treasure within seven days, otherwise, he could only reopen his meridians by force!
On the second day after Fang Qiu returned to school, it was Monday.
The show of the Young Physician of Huaxia Competition was officially announced. There were plenty of titbits and previews everywhere on the Internet, and the advertisements on TV were also quite intensive.
Sunday was the third day of May, which was the official opening day of the show.
In the end, the program was decided to be shown at prime time, on Channel 3 of Central Television.
Although it was on Channel 3, it was directly broadcast at the prime time, which showed how much importance that Central Television had attached to the show.
Seeing the constant previews of the show, those who didn’t look forward to it all began to look forward to it, while those who were already eager to see the show became more expectant.
In the morning, Fang Qiu went back to his dormitory to read books after breakfast.
As soon as he entered the dormitory, the phone in his trouser pocket suddenly rang.
“Dee-dee-dee…” It was a text message.
Fang Qiu took out his mobile phone and took a look.
It was a text message from the crew of the Young Physician of Huaxia Competition.
He tapped on the text message. “Please come to record the third episode of the show in Jinlong Hotel in Linxia City of Ganzhou Province before eight o’clock on the evening of May 4th.” There was only a simple notice in the text message.
Obviously, not only Fang Qiu but also the other top 50 contestants received the same text message.
After reading the text message, Fang Qiu put the phone on the table and began to read his book.
But a short while later, the phone suddenly rang again.
It was from Jiang Miaoyu.
“Hello?” Fang Qiu answered the phone with a smile.
“Hey, what are you doing?” Jiang Miaoyu asked.
“I’m reading in my dorm, preparing for the next competition,” Fang Qiu said frankly.
“I just received a text message from the program group, asking us to go to the Ganzhou Province. The third episode seems to be no longer recorded in the capital city. Have you received a text message?” Jiang Miaoyu asked.
“Yeah, I just got it,” Fang Qiu nodded and said. “I’m also very curious. They’ve already prepared the broadcast hall, but why did they change the place after shooting only two episodes? I think the program group might have other intentions since they want to go to Ganzhou Province this time.”
“Wow. I’m stunned. A person like you would be afraid of this change?” Jiang Miaoyu jested.
“Yeah! Of course, I’m afraid,” Fang Qiu chuckled and continued. “What I’m most afraid of is that Mr. Xu can’t find a wife.”
“Humph,” Jiang Miaoyu snorted and said. “I got to go. I have to ask Mr. Chu some questions. With Mr. Chu’s guidance, just wait for me to surpass you.”
“All right, I’m looking forward to it.” Fang Qiu answered with a smile and then hung up the phone.
However, the phone rang again before he was about to put it away.
This time, it was He Gaoming.
“Hello?” Fang Qiu answered the phone.
“Master, I got some news about the thing you asked me to inquire.” He Gaoming’s voice came from the other side of the phone.
“Oh? What is it?” Fang Qiu asked.
“It’s hard to say on the phone. Let’s talk about it when we meet,” He Gaoming said.
“Okay,” Fang Qiu nodded and said. “Let’s go to the teahouse we met last time.”
“Just as I thought. I’m halfway there now, and I’ll be there in five minutes,” He Gaoming said.
“Okay, I’m coming. see you there,” Fang Qiu nodded and hung up the phone.
Then Fang Qiu stood up, immediately put on the mysterious man’s outfit, and rushed to the teahouse on the street not far from his school.
It was still in the previous box.
The difference was that He Gaoming didn’t order any food this time.
After entering the box, Fang Qiu asked, “Go ahead. Tell me the details.”
“Master, have a seat, please.” He Gaoming grinned. While asking Fang Qiu to sit down, he quickly poured a cup of tea for Fang Qiu, and then said, “I heard that there will be an auction in Yangzhou on Thursday, and thE last item of the auction is a Heaven Treasure ranked 19th—Mei Leaf.”
“Mei Leaf?” Fang Qiu started to ponder.
In his mind, he immediately thought of the record about the Mei Leaf in the Scroll of Heaven and Earth Treasures.
No.19 on the Heaven Treasure List: Mei Leaf.
Its shape was like an eyebrow, as sharp as a blade. It showed a blue glimmer and was produced after the mutation of a bamboo leaf. Although it was a Heaven Treasure, it was incomparably sharp and tough, which could compare to a magic weapon.
“Is this piece of news reliable?” Fang Qiu asked.
He made a rough estimate. According to his current situation, he could only suppress the sense of breakthrough until Sunday, so he must get the Heaven Treasure before Sunday.
In addition, there was vast and powerful Internal Qi in his body that was strong enough to allow him to reach the fifth class, so the Heaven Treasure he needed had to be ranked at the top.
He believed that the 19th Mei Leaf should be able to do that.
“Of course! It’s me who got the news!” He Gaoming nodded and said. “Don’t worry. This source is absolutely reliable. It’s just that it’s a little tricky to attend this auction.”
“Why?” Fang Qiu asked.
“Because, this is a closed-off auction, which means only those who got the inivitation could get into the auction. Without an invitation, you can’t enter. And the people who don’t receive the invitation doesn’t know this thing at all. It took me a lot of effort to inquire about it,” He Gaoming said.
“Oh?” Fang Qiu frowned.
It was indeed a bit tricky if they could only get in with invitations.
“Is there any other way to enter besides the invitation?” Fang Qiu asked.
“Yes,” He Gaoming nodded immediately and said. “We just need to target a person who received the invitation and knock him out. Then we can steal his invitation and directly get in as that person.”
Fang Qiu was speechless.
Why did this guy always think about doing this kind of thing?
However, after giving it some thoughts, this seemed to be the only feasible way.
“Then… Let’s do it.” Eventually, Fang Qiu agreed.
“Okay,” He Gaoming clapped his hands and immediately said. “I’ll go to check the list of people getting the invitations immediately. I’m sure I’ll choose the easiest one.”
“All right,” Fang Qiu nodded and said. “You’ve been stuck in the first-class Martial Superior for a long time, right? To return this favor, I will find an opportunity to help you improve your strength to the second-class Martial Superior.”
“Really?” He Gaoming was surprised and said. “Thank you, master. You have no idea how long I have been waiting for this day. I think I’m going to cry out loud if I still have to wait for it.”
Fang Qiu rolled his eyes.
He got up and was ready to leave.
At this time, He Gaoming suddenly shouted. “Master, why don’t you take me with you? Let me see the world.”
Fang Qiu stopped and turned to look at He Gaoming.
“Fine, find the target as soon as possible.” Fang Qiu nodded.
He Gaoming was extremely ecstatic.
He finally made progress after calling him as his master for so long.
If things kept going on like this, not to mention the second-class Martial Superior, he would be able to make it to the third class, fourth class, or even fifth class.
After Fang Qiu left, He Gaoming drank up the tea on the table and hurriedly went to inquire about the list.
There was no denying that He Gaoming wasn’t blowing his own trumpet for claiming that he was a professional detective.
The next day, Fang Qiu received a phone call from him saying that he had already targeted two people.
Then they had determined the target.
That afternoon, Fang Qiu got in He Gaoming’s car, and the two of them rushed to Yangzhou together. Anyway, it was not far from Jiangjing.
On the way to Yangzhou, Fang Qiu asked, “Who are these two people?”
“There is not much to tell.” He Gaoming thought for a while and said, “Frankly, these two people are just rich, and their strength is not very powerful, but their fathers are quite powerful. It is said that they are both sixth-class Martial Superiors.”
“Sixth-class? Huh? That’s not quite impressive,” Fang Qiu said.
Hearing that, He Gaoming was speechless at once.
“It’s the sixth class, for heaven’s sake! The sixth class! Maybe it’s not powerful for you, but for others, it’s almost invincible!” He Gaoming thought to himself.
As if he suddenly thought of something, He Gaoming said, “By the way, there is trouble at this auction. The price of the auction is at least eight million yuan. The Mei Leaf must be above ten million yuan. Although you have sold a lot of Earth Treasures, do you still have so much money now?”
Hearing that, Fang Qiu pondered for a moment.
He only had ten million yuan now.
He had taken the Earth Bead with him, so it was sure to be worth some money, but it might not be enough.
“It seems that I have to prepare something.” Fang Qiu secretly thought.
Soon, arriving in Yangzhou, He Gaoming took Fang Qiu directly to a hotel.
They came to the front desk. He Gaoming took out his ID card, ordered a room for himself, then turned to look at Fang Qiu, waiting for Fang Qiu to take out his ID card.
“Ha-ha, I finally get to see your face. There’s no way you can escape this time.” He Gaoming thought to himself.
He Gaoming couldn’t help smiling quietly.
Fang Qiu was not hesitant.
He took out an ID card from his pants pocket and handed it to the receptionist at the front desk.
He Gaoming rushed forward to have a look.
However, he was dumbfounded as he saw the card.
The photo on the ID card turned out to be masked, and even the name on it was written “John Doe”.
It was not just He Gaoming, the receptionist at the front desk of the hotel was also stunned.
“Err.. sir, did you get the wrong ID?” the waiter asked.
“That’s the right one. You can swipe it,” Fang Qiu said.
Hearing that, the receptionist frowned and swiped.
As a result, the computer actually showed his identity information. It was really a photo of him with a mask, and the name was also John Doe.
This really made the receptionist and He Gaoming confuse.
How could there be such an ID card in this world?
People couldn’t even see his face.
What kind of ID card was this?
Just when the two were extremely shocked, Fang Qiu reached out to the receptionist and said, “Can I have it back now?”
As she heard what he said, the receptionist didn’t dare to hesitate and immediately handed the ID card back to Fang Qiu.
She was not stupid.
Those who could hold such an ID card must have a powerful background.
Even if this was a fake ID card, she couldn’t mess with him.
After all, this kind of ID card was not something that ordinary people would dare to make.
Taking his ID card, Fang Qiu took the room card and turned to walk upstairs.
In fact, it was not surprising that Fang Qiu had this ID card. When he was on the plane, he had already thought that it would be easy to be found out who he was if he used his real identity to take the plane.
Therefore, after returning from Bhutan, he asked Li Ji to give him such a completely legal ID card.
With the ID card in his hand, Fang Qiu turned upstairs and entered his room.
