If someone of the Du Clan saw this shabby old man referring Du Shaofu as big brother the entire Du Clan would be flipped over.
Who is this old man? He is the esteemed Fu Lao, the one even Patriarch have to bend and salute to, but he is calling the fool young master big brother, this is definitely shocking.
"I came to see you, and to take a stroll in the Martial Collection Building."
Du Shaofu seemed quite satisfied to Fu Yibai’s attitude, however when Fu Yibai heard that Du Shaofu wanted to enter the Martial Collection Building, he curled his lips revealing an old yellowed front teeth, he looked at Du Shaofu: "You want to go inside again, you know that the Martial Collection Building is not a place to come and go as you please "
"Do not forget I am your big brother, do you have any opinions?"
Du Shaofu stared straight at Fu Yibai without budging, raised his eyebrows, and lightly said: "Who sworn that the lost party will call the one who won Big Brother, to adhere unconditionally to Big Brother’s words, the person who violate this oath will forever feel the to urge to urinate plus a lifetime of hemorrhoids!"
"No opinions, no comments, cause you are my Big Brother."
Listening to Du Shaofu’s words, Fu Yibai’s face wilted, forcing out of a smile, chuckled and said in a small voice: "You go in, I'll stay here as a lookout, just look at whatever you want, any problems come look for me”
"En, Lao Bai, I like your attitude, rest assured, I had promised you earlier, in front of other people, I would give you face." Du Shaofu patted Fu Yibai’s shoulder in a satisfied manner and strode casually into the Material Collection Building.
This little bastard, if he is a real fool how fortunate it would be, unfortunately all was just pretense. Looking at Du Shaofu’s back, Fu Yibai hated vehemently, if I knew I would not have made such venomous oath.
Remembering the time of the bet, Fu Yibai wanted to cry but no tears would come out, it has been several years past but he still couldn’t figure out how he lost, and worst he lost to a fool.
Betting so many times in his lifetime that was the only time Fu Yibai miscalculated and lost unknowingly, that oath was made by him and remembering that venomous oath, Fu Yibai touched his withered butt.
"Fu Lao, I have permission to go to the second floor to pick a martial skill"
At this time, a fine dressed young man happily ran towards Fu Yibai, to be permitted to pick a martial skill from the Martial Collection Building are usually those that were rewarded by the family.
"Pick martial skills, what’s the use of learning so many martial skills, biting off more than you can chew, sweep the floor for me."
Fu Lao’s mood is not very good, immediately looking upset he threw the broom to the young man and left without looking back.
"Yes, Fu Lao"
Young man’s happy face was replaced with an aggrieved look but there is no other way, with the broom in his hands he honestly started sweeping.
This is not Du Shaofu’s first time inside the Martial Collection Building, although each time he could only sneak in without knowledge of others but the Du Clan’s martial exercises positions is something he knew like the back of his hand.
This time the purpose of coming in the Martial Collection Building is to find a suitable exercise law.
Exercise law is divided into four levels, the strongest Heaven rank, the lowest Yellow rank, each level is further divided into three grades of order namely early grade, intermediate and high-grade.
Du Clan’s main descendants mostly practices one of three exercise law, the strongest set of exercise is said to be called 'Purple Qi Sunworship Scripture', an early grade Mysterious rank exercise law that only a small number of extremely important members of the family is allowed to cultivate it.
Side branch families cultivates the 'Unfathomable Righteous Tactics’ or 'Bright Moon Tactics' both are Yellow rank high grade level exercises.
Du Shaofu is very much at home on the third floor of Martial Collection Building where all the high grade martial arts of the Du Clan is kept. Since he is going to cultivate, Du Shaofu plans to cultivate a high grade exercise as no one in the family cares anyway, sometimes there is a good side of being a fool, there is nothing the family can do if they were to find out later.
The third floor of the Martial Collection Building is very spacious, exuding an air of era gone by. Not much things are placed on this floor, of course apart from the Patriarch nobody else would be allowed to roam freely like Du Shaofu.
"Where is the Purple Qi Sunworship Scripture?”
Du Shaofu still couldn’t locate the ‘Purple Qi Sunworship’ exercise law after going around the third floor, he saw both 'Unfathomable Righteous Tactics’ and 'Bright Moon Tactics', but these two sets of exercises law is not what Du Shaofu wanted.
Suddenly, while searching for the ‘Purple Qi Sunworship Scripture’ Du Shaofu heard a breeze blown past behind him.
"Who is it"
Golden light flashed cross Du Shaofu’s eyes, reacting instinctively, he rapidly retreated and turned sideways while congealing a handprint, xuanqi rushed out enveloping his body, winding and twisting in strange arcs before gathering in his palm. Making a fist that has a faint talisman pattern and strike out directly onto the breeze’s direction.
Breeze dispersed blowing against Du Shaofu’s forehead, and Du Shaofu was thrown back from the impact.staggering a few steps back before finally stabilizing his body by leaning against the wall. Raising his bright eyes to look around, the entire third floor of the Martial Collection Building was empty not even the shadow of a ghost can be seen.
"Ei, what is this?"
Instead of shadows, Du Shaofu saw an interesting object, unsure of how the object fell down from the crevice corner of the wall right onto Du Shaofu’s forehead.
If not for the few steps of retreat that shook the walls, the object wouldn’t have fallen down. Du Shaofu’s hand lifted the object, a small glowing bronze tower, the size of a thumb, dusty and unremarkable looking, obviously no one has noticed this thing at all.
Evaluating this humble tower, which seems like nothing extraordinary, probably a toy or small gadget, Du Shaofu’s mind is more focused on figuring who made a sneak attack on him.
"Who is it in the end"
Putting the little tower away, Du Shaofu was still wondering who attacked him earlier but it can only wait till he get out of the building.
Although he did not find ‘Purple Qi Sunworship Scripture’, it is not in his character to leave empty-handed, he can still practice martial skills, as he cannot use the mysterious first style every time.
Going through introduction of some of the martial skills, Du Shaofu picked up a martial skill and whichever items particularly interested him will also be taken.
Finally Du Shaofu went down to the second floor and did the same before leaving satisfied.
