After the old man walked out and looked around, he cleared his throat and started talking.
“As there are many participants in the Heroes Conference this time, the cabins are limited. According to the past practice, each person only has to pay 1,000 star dollars, but times are different now. Anyone who wants to board the ship has to pay 10,000 star dollars, and it’s non-negotiable!”
”What? That’s an increase of ten times!”
“Damn it, this old man is just trying to make a fortune, isn’t he?”
“Shush, don’t talk nonsense. This person isn’t to be messed with.”
“10,000 star dollars isn’t that much. We can eliminate some unqualified people too.”
Many people talked softly, some happy and some sad.
George was not bothered about it. It was just 10,000 star dollars, and he did not lack it.
The woman who was touched by George looked a little unhappy because she and her sister had just come down from the mountain and did not have much money with them.
“Are you still in the mood to play with the cat? We won’t be able to board the ship now.”
The woman looked at her younger sister who was playing with the cat and felt exasperated. The latter was taken aback and realized that they had no money to buy a ticket.
”Um, what should we do, then?” the woman said in embarrassment and anxiety.
“I have some money with me. Should I pay for the two of you?” George quickly said upon hearing their conversation.
After all, he was in the wrong just now, so he wanted to make up for it.
“Is that really okay?” The older woman was taken aback when she heard George and felt a little embarrassed.
She thought it was irreverent since they only met by chance.
”Tsk, do you want to buy normal tickets for two pretty ladies? What a shame.”
At this time, an uncanny voice rang from the side and caught George’s attention.
Three well-dressed youths appeared in George’s sight. The one in the lead held a folding fan in his hand and looked like a rich young kid. He was the one who spoke just now.
“I’m talking about you, buddy. If you don’t have money, don’t try to make a fool of yourself. How dare you invite these two beauties with ordinary tickets? Shame on you.” The youth said mockingly as if he was the overlord.
“I don’t feel any shame. What other solution do you have?” George was not angry but asked lightly instead.
The latter chuckled lightly, looked at George in disdain, and approached the twin sisters.
He said, ”Two pretty ladies, I know the owner of this ship. There are good private rooms inside with all sorts of facilities. They’re quiet and comfortable too. Why don’t I invite you for a seat inside?”
The young man said with a smile, looking like a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Many people showed looks of contempt at this scene, but no one dared to say anything. After all, their outfits did not seem affordable for ordinary people, so they were obviously not from ordinary families.
Many people sighed at this, lamenting that the flower would soon be tainted by soil. Even female practitioners could hardly resist the temptation of wealth, and such things were not uncommon.
“Thank you, kind Sir, but we’re not interested in your offer.” The woman who was touched by George said with a smile, refusing outright without beating about the bush.
