Soaring of Galaxia Chapter 271
Qin Wushuang smiled lightly: "The mouth belongs to you, and you have already drank it. Could I cover your mouth and stop you from talking?"
That person laughed and his eyeballs rolled around. Then, he waved his signboard and said: "My name is Li Buyi, I am a literati scholar that had failed an exam and now wanders around the entire country. I do some fortune telling based on the subject’s face. A moment ago, I observed your face from afar and felt strange. I would like to speak what’s on my mind."
That person did not become frustrated even though Qin Wushuang did not speak. He poured the alcohol without shame and drank another three cups. Then, he smiled: "Since ancient times, faces to a man is like barks to a tree. Human face record four types of emotions such as happiness, sadness, anger and joy. Even the most scheming type of person could not help but reveal a few traces of their true emotions. However, your face is the strangest face I have ever seen. From your face, I can see the movements from your heart. I see that you are laughing, but in fact, you might not be laughing from the bottom of your heart. Your expression has nothing to do with your inner emotions, why is that?"
Inwardly, Qin Wushuang felt interest. Of course, since he was wearing a mask, his emotions would not reveal itself on the surface. However, hearing this person’s words, did he mean that he knew that he was wearing a mask, or was it because he could not see through the secrets?
Qin Wushuang could not help but look closer at this person: "Li Buyi?"
"That’s me." Li Buyi smiled casually.
"Are you here to drink, or to stare at my face?" Qin Wushuang asked with a faint smile.
"First to drink, second to see your face. Only, you are born with an unnaturally strange appearance and I cannot see through your face. Please don’t blame me, ha ha ha." While Li Buyi laughed, he drank another few cups.
Instantly, he had finished the drinks. When he pour it again, he realized that the alcohol pot was empty.
Li Buyi lifted the empty pot and looked inside the pot. After shaking it vigorously, two drops finally came out and he caught it with his tongue. He smacked it with his lips and put it down while not feeling like he had fully expressed himself.
When he glanced that Qin Wushuang was looking at him, he did not feel embarrassed and only laughed. Then, he said as if he was not satisfied with small gains: "If you are willing to let me drink another two pots of delicious alcohol, I do have a good news to give to you. This piece of news is easily worth ten pots of alcohol. It’s cheap for you to get it with three pots of alcohol."
Qin Wushuang made a gesture and summoned the waiter. When that waiter walked over and saw Li Buyi, he could not help but to express distaste. He said to Qin Wushuang: "Mister, this fortune-teller has been cheating people out of food and drinks these past few days. Don’t listen to his foolish words. Many guests along the way had been deceived into giving him food and drinks by his words. Some of them even got cheated out of their money, it’s not worth it."
Qin Wushuang nodded to say: "Give us three pots of your good alcohol, and also a full table of dishes that go well with it."
To Qin Wushuang, money was not a problem. He wanted to know whether this Li Buyi was a lying fortune-teller, or a person that had true skills.
After all, even an elite warrior at the Spiritual Martial Force could not see that Qin Wushuang was wearing a mask. However, a little fortune-teller had better eyes? Most likely, there were some secrets hidden within the man.
Since he had met with someone that did not lack money, although that waiter had good intentions, he would not earn money if he refused. Thus, he left while shaking his head with a bitter smile.
This restaurant was efficient and soon, they prepared a table full of drinks and dishes.
That Li Buyi did not hold back. Compared to his rather refined appearance and clothing, his table manners could only be described by these words—The refined posture had disappeared without a trace.
Qin Wushuang still watched him with a smile. He wanted to use this opportunity to observe this LI Buyi. However, regardless of how much he examined him, this Li Buyi still showed one type of morality and conduct. He had never showed any strange actions in any moment. Only, his action of devouring the food ravenously made people feel that he was a hungry ghost that did not get reincarnated.
After a while, this Li Buyi finally slowed his manner of eating ravenously. He wiped his oily hands randomly on the table cloth and cupped his hands while acting pretentiously graceful to Qin Wushuang. With an oily mouth, he said: "It’s been a few month since I set up a booth to read people’s fortune, yet, I had never meet someone as generous as you. Could I ask your name?"
"Wu Xinghe." Naturally, Qin Wushuang would not speak the words of "Qin Wushuang." Instead, he used his name from the previous world.
"Wu Xinghe?" Li Buyi was stunned. Then, he pinched his finger with an expression as if he was some elite person. Then, a strange light flashed across his eyes as he mused to himself while looking at Qin Wushuang: "No, no."
"A moment ago, I only calculated randomly and realized that I could not even find your destiny. With my iron finger to calculate, there are no lives that I cannot foresee. However, you are a strange person. Wu Xinghe… This name, I could not find anything…"
Li Buyi sized Qin Wushuang with a faint smile: "However, I feel that you did not fabricate your name, why is that? Why?"
He extended his oily hands and started to scratch his head. He revealed an expression as if he had not washed his head for a few dozen of years and lice had filled on his heads. While he kept scratching up and down, he murmured: "It’s so strange, too strange, Wu Xinghe, Wu Xinghe…"
He also continued to calculate with the fingers on his other hand and kept speaking words as if he was an elite person. Until this point, Qin Wushuang did feel that he was most likely deceiving him. Yet, he did not expose him as he stood up and said: "Take your time, I am going to take my leave. I’ve already paid for this food. It’s also a tough job to calculate and regardless, you’ve tried, right?"
Li Buyi did not hear his words and ignored Qin Wushuang. Only, he looked miserable and kept calculating. His expression was extremely sad and depressed.
Qin Wushuang sighed helplessly. If this person was a liar, he should have stopped since he had already ate and drank the food. Even the acting should have stopped at this moment. However, from the look of this person, this person was continuing this show.
"Tsk tsk, even if he is a liar putting on a show, with this dedication, he is worth the price of the food." Qin Wushuang smiled bitterly inwardly and started to head outside, "If this person lived in the former world, just this acting alone would make him the King of acting. It’s rare for him to go to this extent to cheat for food and drinks."
Just as he was walking outside, that Li Buyi called out strangely: "Don’t leave, don’t leave, hold on a second."
Qin Wushuang did not stop and kept walking to the door.
However, Li Buyi was like an extremely strong glue and blocked Qin Wushuang’s path with a playful smile. He extended his hands and stopped Qin Wushuang.
"Don’t rush, tell me your birthday."
"No comment." Since Qin Wushuang felt certain that he was a liar, he would not continue to humor him.
"No comment?" Li Buyi smiled, "It does not matter. I have a rare skill called "Tracing the line by matching your arteries". I only needed to look at your hand lines or feel your pulse, I will know your birthday."
Qin Wushuang laughed lightly: "If you cannot tell, what happens next?"
Li Buyi showed a face as if he was not afraid dying: "If I cannot get it, I will do whatever you want."
Qin Wushuang sized Li Buyi up for a moment and smiled bitterly: "I see you have no money, even if you are wrong, what can you lose? No, it won’t count."
Li Buyi bite his teeth: "If I am wrong, I will run without clothes and I will never set up booth in this place again!"
Run without clothes? Isn’t that running naked? Qin Wushuang did not have such vulgar tastes. He could only sigh helplessly: "If that’s the case, you will only win some laughs from the bystanders and this would not benefit me at all. No, it would not work."
Li Buyi extended the cards from his hands and shouted: "Free fortune-telling, free to see your luck! Limited to only three people, three people only! Those who want to sign up come here quickly."
When Li Buyi shouted, a lot of by passers were attracted. Although they saw Li Buyi appeared to show no signs of being an elite person, since it was free, they would take the advantage regardless.
Thus, after a moment, people surrounded Li Buyi.
"Mister, it’s definitely free?" Bystander A asked.
Li Buyi was extremely forthright: "No money, if I am wrong, I will give you a silver."
Such good thing is happening in the world? Those bystanders’ enthusiasm was immediately stirred and they rushed forward. Initially, everyone was looking to observe and wanted to try their good luck.
However, hearing Li Buyi saying that he would even give money, this way, many people came in wanting that free money. Some people even developed ideas that even if he had gotten it right, they would proclaim that he was wrong and take the silver.
Li Buyi glanced Qin Wushuang proudly: "Whether I have true skills, you can see for yourself. To prevent you from saying that these people are my friends, you can take anyone from the street and I will prove it to you."
Although Qin Wushuang did not believe that Li Buyi had such skill, he could not help but feel curious when he heard him speaking so confidently.
He glanced around casually and waved his hand at that waiter from the restaurant: "Let him see you, I will give you five silver."
That waiter was overjoyed as he immediately rubbed his hands on the body and said: "Sure thing, sure thing, I will collaborate with you."
Li Buyi put on a stern face: "Earlier you said I was a liar and made up things about me. Aren’t’ you afraid that I am making up words to lie to you?"
That waiters said happily: "Go ahead to make up words, I will just not believe you."
This waiter was straightforward and his words had left Li Buyi unable to argue back. He extended his hand and saw for a moment: "First year of the sixty-year cycle, a quarter past seven on the 20th of the first lunar month…"
The expression of this waiter suddenly changed as he was extremely surprised. He withdraw his palm with a tremble and looked at Li Buyi in disbelief. He asked: "How do you know?"
If one said that Li Buyi was showing the temperament of an elite person when he had announced the birthday of this waiter, in the next moment, he was enjoying his success like a person of low status.
He spoke in such a way of thinking highly of himself: "These are my methods. How can ordinary people understand my methods? Now, do you still dare to say I am a cheater?"
