“Isn’t this guy too narcissistic?” Fang Qiu thought and looked at Long Qiyun speechlessly.
It was the first time that Fang Qiu had met someone who felt so good about himself. He was the only one who could praise himself so avidly that others would feel embarrassed when they heard it!
Fang Qiu thought for a moment and said, “Actually, I also know how to cast a sword. Mr. Long, would you like to give me some advice?”
Long Qiyun smiled faintly when he heard that.
In his opinion, the meaning of Fang Qiu’s words was akin to admitting defeat.
Therefore, he did not want to talk to Fang Qiu anymore. He immediately shook his head and replied, “I’m tired and it’s getting late. I have to go back and rest, but I can leave it to you. As for your sword making skill, I’ll just look at the finished product tomorrow.”
“Alright, thank you.” Fang Qiu nodded and thanked him.
Long Qiyun turned and left.
After Long Qiyun left, He Gaoming, who had been standing beside Fang Qiu, asked, “Master, do you know how to cast a sword?”
“No, I don’t.” Fang Qiu shook his head.
“Then why are you still pretending?” He Gaoming rolled his eyes and looked at Fang Qiu with disdain.
“I just learned it, didn’t I?” Fang Qiu rolled his eyes too.
He Gaoming was speechless.
In the past three hours, he had been watching and learning with Fang Qiu, but after three hours, he did not know anything and did not learn anything at all.
Did Fang Qiu really master the skill?
Then Gaoming saw that Fang Qiu was actually beginning to cast the sword, although very clumsily.
Since Fang Qiu was already doing it, He Gaoming did not dare to say much. He could only stand by and watch.
Three hours later, after a lot of work, Fang Qiu finally cast the first sword.
“Master, is this also called a sword?”
At the moment when Fang Qiu finished casting, He Gaoming said with a bland expression on his face, “This thing isn’t like a sword or a knife, or even a thorn. Does it even work?”
Fang Qiu snorted and said, “How do you know if you don’t try? Take the Newborn Moon Sword and fight with me.”
Hearing that, He Gaoming picked up the sword.
“Don’t use your internal Qi!” After warning him, Fang Qiu lifted his sword and slashed at him.
He Gaoming also swung his sword toward Fang Qiu.
“Crack!” As soon as the two swords collided, the sword that Fang Qiu just cast was instantly cut into two pieces!
He Gaoming was even more speechless.
Just as he was about to say something, he found that Fang Qiu was not unhappy at all. Instead, he was extremely excited.
“That’s right.” Fang Qiu thought and was very excited.
This sword was forged by him in the state of a fifth-class Martial Superior. Now, after it was cut off by the Newborn Moon Sword, he really felt his own aura on the sword and it could even reach the great harmony between human and sword.
This proved that Fang Qiu’s assumption was correct.
The sword was just a product.
The main purpose of casting this time was to have a try.
Fang Qiu summoned all his energy and began to forge the second sword.
Three hours later, he completed the casting of the second sword.
Compared with the first sword, the second one finally looked like a normal sword and actually looked quite good.
“Well done, Master. Your learning ability is amazingly good. It’s only the second time that you’ve cast it, but you’ve already succeeded?”
He Gaoming was surprised.
After only two practices, Fang Qiu was able to forge a real sword.
If it were him, he would never have been able to do it.
After casting the second sword, Fang Qiu did not stop but continued to cast the third one.
Another three hours passed.
The casting of the third sword was complete!
“What the f*ck!” Seeing the finished product, He Gaoming was dumbfounded.
The streamlined shape of the sword in Fang Qiu’s hand was particularly good. In terms of the shape, it was even more beautiful than the Newborn Moon Sword. The Newborn Moon Sword was an ordinary, straight long sword. The third sword that Fang Qiu cast was gourd-shaped. The streamlined shape of the hilt and the body was very good, just like a long and narrow gourd.
The sword emitted a dazzling cold light, which gave people a chilling sensation, which was no less than that of the Newborn Moon Sword.
“Come on, let’s give it a try!” Fang Qiu waved the sword and then smiled, signaling He Gaoming to pick up the Newborn Moon Sword.
The two of them began to fight again.
“Swoosh!” As the blades of the swords swung, clear and harsh thumping sounds came from the two swords.
“Go on.” Fang Qiu shouted and continued to slash.
The thumping sounds from the swords kept ringing out.
After slashing for more than ten times, Fang Qiu stopped.
Raising the sword in front of his eyes, Fang Qiu observed it carefully and found that the third sword he cast was not damaged at all. There was no crack on the blade or any signs of other damage.
That was to say, although the quality of this sword was not as good as that of the Newborn Moon Sword, it was still very good. At least it could resist the attack of the Newborn Moon Sword and did not break!
As he put down the Newborn Moon Sword, He Gaoming immediately rushed to Fang Qiu, stared at the sword in Fang Qiu’s hand for a long time, licked his lips, looked at Fang Qiu with eager eyes, and said flatteringly, “Can you give me this sword, master?”
“Crack!” At this moment, a sound was heard.
Fang Qiu and He Gaoming turned their heads to look at the same time, only to see Long Qiyun coming down from the lift after a good night’s sleep.
“Mr. Long.” Fang Qiu called out and nodded at Long Qiyun.
“Mr. Long.” Fang Qiu called out and nodded at Long Qiyun.
“Mr. John Doe, how was the casting for the night?” Long Qiyun walked over with a smile.
“It’s okay.” Fang Qiu smiled and raised the long sword in his hand.
Seeing the long sword in Fang Qiu’s hand, Long Qiyun suddenly paused and then immediately walked quickly over to Fang Qiu. He stared at the long sword in Fang Qiu’s hand and asked, “Hmm? Did you cast this sword?”
Fang Qiu nodded and said, “Yes. Don’t laugh at me, Mr. Long.”
“Let me have a look.”
Long Qiyun hurriedly took the long sword from Fang Qiu’s hands and began to scrutinize it carefully from the blade to the body, not missing out on any detail. After he finished checking, Long Qiyun wanted to say something but did not say it. After hesitating for a long while, he finally said, “Not bad.”
Long Qiyun was quite surprised.
After his examination, he found that the level of Fang Qiu’s sword casting skill was almost as good as his average level.
In this world, except for himself who was publicly recognized as a forging genius, there was actually someone else who could forge a sword so well!
When Long Qiyun thought of this, he turned to look at Fang Qiu from head to toe.
He found that although Fang Qiu was wearing a mask, he was obviously quite young judging from his figure. He was even not as old as himself.
“It seems that I must continue to work hard. As the head of the forging family, it will be terrible if I am surpassed by others.”
Long Qiyun felt a great pressure in his heart.
He did not want the reputation of the Long family to be ruined in his generation.
He Gaoming was even more shocked.
In addition to his real identity, he knew Fang Qiu very well. But even so, he did not expect that his master could surpass the head of the largest forging family in Huaxia by casting only three swords!
The most important thing was he saw with his own eyes that Fang Qiu was able to improve all the way from not knowing anything initially to being able to do this.
It only took him nine hours to reach this level to cast three swords.
This was… amazing!
That was truly amazing!
“I’m so honored to receive such a compliment from Mr. Long.”
Fang Qiu laughed heartily and chatted with Long Qiyun. Then, he asked, “I wonder if I can continue to use this place? I need another three days.”
Fang Qiu had already planned it.
He was going to cast more than ten swords, which contained the aura of at least the sixth class.
As for the price, a fifth-class one would be worth one million, so a sixth-class sword would be worth at least two million.
The most important thing was that Fang Qiu was also about to cast a sword which had the aura of a guru.
It would be a sword with the aura of a guru.
At that time, once it was on sale, he could imagine what would happen.
However, Long Qiyun waved his hand generously to show his consent.
It was because he was happy.
And he was pleased because of Fang Qiu’s compliment!
What he didn’t know was that the reason why Fang Qiu said that was just to please him.
Yesterday, Fang Qiu had already noticed that Long Qiyun was a narcissistic person who liked very much to be praised by others.
After casting the third sword, Fang Qiu made the decision to continue casting.
That was why before he made the request to borrow this place for three more days, he tried to praise Long Qiyun without being too obvious.
He did not expect that he had actually pleased him.
Long Qiyun said, “Three days won’t be a problem, but I have my conditions.”
Fang Qiu asked, “What conditions?”
Long Qiyun spoke without hesitation, “I’d like to observe closely how you cast the sword!”
Fang Qiu frowned and thought for a while, then opened his mouth, “Well… Well, you can see it on the first day and give me some advice, but you can’t see it for the next two days.”
Fang Qiu did not intend to hide his strength. After all, on the first day, what he wanted to cast were swords with the aura of a sixth-class Martial Superior. But the next two days would be different.
In order to cast a sword with the aura of a guru, Fang Qiu had to restore his strength to the guru realm when he cast it.
However, the strength of the guru was too intimidating. People could figure it out just by feeling his aura.
Fang Qiu could not let anyone know what his actual strength was.
Therefore, he certainly could not allow Long Qiyun to observe him at work during the next two days.
When he heard what Fang Qiu said, Long Qiyun immediately replied arrogantly, “Why do I need a day? I only need to watch you cast one sword. A genius doesn’t need to observe for too long!”
Fang Qiu and He Gaoming looked at one another and saw each other’s expression. They wanted to laugh but did not dare to laugh out loud.
“Since you are here, you are the guests. You have been busy all night. You must be tired. Let’s go up for a meal first and then come to cast after that. What do you think?” Long Qiyun asked.
“Okay.” Fang Qiu nodded at once.
He and He Gaoming were already hungry. After dinner at six o’clock yesterday, they had not eaten or drunk anything until now. If Long Qiyun had not come down, Fang Qiu would have ordered a takeout.
Soon, after a good meal, Fang Qiu and the other two returned to the underground workshop.
Originally, He Gaoming was going to bring some food to eat in the evening, for fear that Fang Qiu would be too immersed in casting and forget to eat. However, Long Qiyun waved his hands and said that he had ordered people from the kitchen to prepare food when it was time. They just needed to go up and take it.
On the way back to the workshop, Fang Qiu secretly increased his strength from the fifth class to the sixth class.
After returning to the workshop, he immediately began to cast the fourth sword.
This time, Fang Qiu not only forged it in the same way as before, but also did it using his own ideas!
