Chapter 244: The Near-Collision Incident

A small car and a van pulled into a villa’s drive, one after the other.
After Zhang Che alighted, he couldn’t help but ask Huang Tielan, who was at his side, “Why is this van coming with us? Are you going to move in with me?”
“Pah! You wish!” Huang Tielan rebuked. She pointed at the Demonic Rainbow Spider by her feet, saying, “What’s in there is food for my Caihong today.”
Zhang Che couldn’t help but feel shocked. -That little thing can eat that much?-
When the soldiers who came with them opened the boot and carried the alloy cages out, Zhang Che immediately understood the situation.
The metal cages were housing a scorpion close to two meters long with colorful patches, a thigh-thick, coiled-up huge snake with red and golden circular patterns on its skin, a bathtub-sized emerald green furry spider, and a toad the size of a goat with tri-colored lumps on its skin.
Sweeping his gaze across them, Zhang Che realized they were all low-tier poisonous exotic beasts. They had been injected with strong tranquilizers, each of them sitting in their respective cages obediently, not moving a muscle.
Well, it seemed like frequent contact with poisonous creatures would be inevitable from now on…
Before the Demonic Rainbow Spider matured, this food had to keep coming.
Earlier, the Demonic Rainbow Spider had already had a meal at the Huang family ancestry home. So, these poisonous beasts were actually his lunch and dinner.
Huang Tielan directed the soldiers to carry the metal cages into the villa’s underground storage room, then directly had that little demonic rainbow spider remain there to look after his own food. Afterwards, she went upstairs and greeted Sun Lan, then proceeded to drag Zhang Che back into the car again.
“Where are we going?” Zhang Che asked after getting in the car.
“Go shopping with me! I haven’t shopped properly in ages!” Huang Tielan said excitedly. She drove the car so fast that it could almost be mistaken for an airplane, scaring Zhang Che into hurriedly telling her to slow down.
“Don’t worry, Zhang Xiaoche. I’ve raced with my dad’s subordinates since young. This little bit of speed is nothing.”
Zhang Che was speechless. -Looks like I have to bring her into the beast world and help her level up, then give her the Maneater Leech King soft armor, in case she gets into an accident.
-Although, I wonder how tempting she’d look after putting on that super tight-fitting soft armor!-
Thinking of this, Zhang Che couldn’t help but turn to look at Miss Tienan’s chest.
Huang Tielan’s slimmed down, perfect oval-shaped face immediately flushed red. She said coquettishly, “Where are you looking at, Zhang Xiaoche! I can’t drive properly!”
Zhang Che let out two dry coughs awkwardly, forcibly shifting his gaze forward. It would be disastrous if his gaze made Huang Tielan feel uneasy and unable to drive properly, leading to an accident…
The car sped through the roads, finally stopping at a shopping mall in the city central. She cheered excitedly and pulled Zhang Che along, starting to buy, buy, and buy.
Mhm, Miss Tienan’s shopping was, in fact, an unrestrained shopping spree.
However, Zhang Che didn’t feel like his arms and legs were going to break from fatigue. He kept following behind her with a smile, settling the bills, carrying her trophies, and was even forced by her to provide many opinions.
By the time they came out of the mall, not only was Zhang Che encumbered, even Huang Tielan’s hands were full, carrying a mountain of things.
“Hah, it’s been so, so long since I shopped so happily. Zhang Xiaoche, you have to come out with me more often!” Huang Tielan jumped about cheerfully, her face glowing with excitement.
The ability of this golden couple to draw eyeballs on the street was simply off the charts, the heads of passersby often turning to look at them. Of course, there weren’t any incidents of some random mentally challenged rich second generation attracted to Huang Tielan’s beauty and coming up to find trouble. That was impossible.
After stuffing their car’s boot full and starting up the engine again, Zhang Che suddenly said to Huang Tielan, “Don’t head back yet. Let’s go to the northern sector’s exotic beast material trading hub; there’s something I want to buy.”
Zhang Che wanted to order a custom-made bow. As such, he needed to go buy some high quality exotic beast materials personally.
He’d done his research on the net last night. Although there were many reputable bow crafting companies in Bei Du, there weren’t any powerful bows that could catch his eye. After all, it was hard to find another person with his inhuman physique, not even one in a million. Why would those weapons companies produce items that were impossible to sell?
With Zhang Che’s current strength, he could barely manage to use a super strong bow with a two thousand kilograms draw weight. As his strength kept increasing slowly but steadily, it wouldn’t be long before he could use such a bow freely. Naturally he wouldn’t be interested in those ordinary bows that only had several hundred kilogram draw weight at the most.
“Okay, sit tight!”
Huang Tielan didn’t ask what Zhang Che wanted to buy. The northern city’s exotic beast material trading hub wasn’t a short distance away. Thus, she only reminded him and floored the accelerator.
The car engine emitted a low and powerful roar. It immediately sped through the congested traffic like a bolt of lightning, leaving Zhang Che’s heart thumping heavily.
They drove for over twenty minutes, drawing closer and closer to the exotic beast material trading hub in northern Bei Du.
Under Huang Tielan’s well-practiced driving, the car steered away from the main road, entering a loop with higher traffic volume, leading to her inevitably slowing down. This was the shortest path to the northern sector’s exotic beast material trading hub, and the traffic here was simply unbelievably high.
Huang Tielan couldn’t help slapping the steering wheel in frustration, grumbling, “A pity that the use of private planes aren’t allowed in city areas. Otherwise we’d just not drive when we go out in the future. The traffic is insane!”
Zhang Che: … -Miss, why don’t you go to heaven instead!
-Not right, this miss here wants to take the sky road, but the system doesn’t allow her to!-
Zhang Che thought to himself, -Did that future father-in-law of mine bring his daughter up as a son all these years? Let alone her exquisite sword skills, she can even race cars and pilot an airplane! Perhaps she could even play with armored tanks!
-Luckily, although Miss Tienan usually seems a little loud and boisterous, deep inside her she’s still very gentle and lovable.-
As he was deep in his thoughts, Zhang Che suddenly felt the car suddenly jerk to the side, followed by Miss Tienan cursing, “What the heck is wrong with him? Does he even know how to drive?!”
Zhang Che hurriedly looked over. He saw a black multi-purpose vehicle suddenly merge into their lane forcibly from the left, forcing their car to shift to the next lane.
-The heck, we actually ran into people intentionally looking for trouble!-
Zhang Che’s temper flared up. He was just thinking about how his luck today was pretty good, not encountering any brain-damaged people looking for trouble while shopping, and now he ran into one while sitting in the car!
If it wasn’t for Huang Tielan’s excellent driving skills, they would have collided for sure.
Although they weren’t driving very fast, a sudden collision wouldn’t feel good, either. It was fine if Zhang Che was by himself, but the important thing was that his Miss Tienan was only an ordinary human!
This was simply intolerable!
Zhang Che felt a surge of fury rising from his soles all the way to his skull. Just as he was about to get out the car to teach the other driver a lesson, he saw all four doors of the black multi-purpose vehicle open, and a few burly men in black suits getting out of the car.
-What the… I don’t recall having any enemies in Bei Du?-
It was naturally impossible for them to be the Huang family’s enemies, either. They were still in the city; who would be so insane to actually mess with them in public? If there were any, they would either be dead or checked into a mental hospital by now.
