The Divine Doctor and Stay-at-home Dad Chapter 632
Chapter 632 Beauty Thorn
Chapter 632 Beauty Thorn
There was a sword on the shelf next to him. It was not very long and the hilt and sheath were about 70 centimeters in total.
The most striking was the shape of the sword. It was beautiful and looked just like a mermaid. The hilt, which was carved cleverly, seemed to be the upper body of a long-haired beauty while the sheath was its lower body with beautiful patterns and red gems on it.
Qin Haodong took the dagger and saw three traditional Chinese characters on the hand-guard. It read, “Beauty Thorn”.
It would definitely be regarded as an ornamental sword by ordinary people, but Qin Haodong could fell rich Spiritual and Murderous Qi around it. He was sure that this beautiful sword was a deadly weapon.
He held the hilt and gently drew the sword. It was exposed in the air, and he could fell a strong spirit of murder.
“Great! This is an excellent sword!”
Qin Haodong highly praised it. In terms of quality, the Beauty Thorn was much better than the Butterfly Sword he had gotten in the auction. It was even as good as the Doujigiri Yasutsuna owned by Yagyuu Yukime. Besides, it was more beautiful and elegant than the Butterfly Sword.
Sir Owen and Fred had been following him. They were surprised to find that Qin Haodong was walking in the treasure vault without checking any items. But suddenly he took a sword. Sir Owen stepped forward and asked, “Mr. Qin, do you like the sword? It’s very beautiful.”
Qin Haodong nodded and said, “Yes, I want it. I’ll choose another six items.”
“OK, no problem.”
Sir Owen agreed without any hesitation or unwillingness. But it was understandable. He was just an ordinary person and could not see the value of the Beauty Thorn.
A master with supreme power would definitely take this sword as a precious treasure.
At this time, Nalan Wushuang, who was checking antiques, also came over. At the sight of the Beauty Thorn, she exclaimed with surprise, “What a beautiful sword!”
Qin Haodong handed the sword to her and said, “Here you are. It’s a gift.”
“Great! It’s a beautiful sword! I like it!”
Nalan Wushuang immediately took it excitedly.
Then Qin Haodong started to walk around the treasure room once again. Although the room was spacious, he had checked all the treasures here in less than an hour.
Unfortunately, there was nothing else he was interested in except the Beauty Thorn. He couldn’t find another divine weapon like the Demon-Vanquishing Wand.
This was quite normal, after all. Divine weapons were not something one could see every day. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be regarded as a divine weapon.
Sir Owen came over and asked nervously, “Dear Qin, is there anything you like?”
He was afraid that Qin Haodong would take back his paintings of Picasso if he couldn’t find satisfactory treasures.
Qin Haodong seemed to know what he was thinking. He smiled and said, “Sir Owen, please don’t worry. I’m a man of integrity and won’t go back on my word.
“But there’s nothing I like here. I’ll ask my girlfriend to choose the remaining 6 items.”
Then he asked Nalan Wushuang to choose another 6 treasures.
However, having watched Qin Haodong make ancient paintings by himself, Nalan Wushuang was no longer interested in these valuable pictures.
She selected two pieces of blue and white porcelain of the Yuan Dynasty, two pieces of porcelain of the Song Dynasty, and two vases of the Qing Dynasty, all of which were of high quality and might be sold for at least 100,000,000 yuan.
They left the treasure vault and went back into the living room. Sir Owen had asked someone to send the porcelain that Nalan Wushuang had just chosen to the Li family.
But Qin Haodong insisted on taking the sculpted chicken head with him. It was the most important thing to him now and nothing could make up for its loss.
He would have put it in his Storage Ring if he were alone. Nalan Wushuang also fancied the Beauty Thorn and took it with her all the time.
The deal was done and Sir Owen was excited. He asked Fred to take a bottle of champagne that had been kept stored for many years. He poured Qin Haodong and Nalan Wushuang a glass of champagne and said fervency, “Dear Qin, cheers for our successful cooperation!”
Qin Haodong clinked glasses with him and drunk up the champagne in his glass.
He put down the glass and said, “Sir Owen, I need your help.”
“Dear Qin, if you’ve got something to say, spit it out! We’re friends now.”
Qin Haodong said, “Sir Owen, I know you have many friends who are collectors. In fact, I still have some paintings of Picasso and want to sell them in exchange for the sculpted animal heads.
“Could you please help me advertise it? Ask the collectors who have the sculpted heads to make a deal with me, or you can buy the animal heads from them, and I’ll give you some paintings of Picasso for exchange.”
“What? You still have some paintings of Picasso?”
Sir Owen’s eyes almost popped. He was already surprised by Picasso’s sketch and didn’t expect that this young man still had some more paintings.
If Qin Haodong were not from Huaxia, he would have thought that he was actually Picasso’s illegitimate son. How could he have so many paintings of Picasso?
Qin Haodong replied, “Yes, I still have some paintings of Picasso. But I want nothing but the sculpted heads of the 12 Zodiacs this time.”
He knew that Sir Owen was influential among collectors in the world, so he wanted to take the opportunity to get as many sculpted heads as possible.
Sir Owen asked, “Qin, can you tell me how many paintings of Picasso do you have now?”
Qin Haodong said, “Sir, to be honest, I have three albums of paintings, and the one I’ve exchanged with you is one of them. There’s still a children’s picture album and a set of still life. Besides, I also have 10 oil paintings of Picasso.”
Fred said with great astonishment, “Do you mean that you still have 30 paintings of Picasso?”
Qin Haodong smiled and nodded. “Yes.”
Sir Owen was stunned and when he came to his senses, he was nearly crazy with joy. He had been searching for Picasso’s paintings for the past years but had gotten nothing. He had never expected that so many paintings of Picasso would appear all at once.
He abandoned his gentleman’s demeanor and shouted excitedly, “Qin, you must be his illegitimate child! I’m 100% sure!”
Qin Haodong laughed and said, “You know I’m from Huaxia.”
Sir Owen calmed down and said, “I do know many great collectors and they all have many antiques. Maybe someone might possess a sculpted head.
“But how do you exchange with them? If your offer is not attractive enough, they may not show you their collections.”
Qin Haodong said, “Well, how about this? Please help me advertise it. I want to have a sculpted animal head for one album of Picasso’s paintings. Do you think this offer is tempting enough?”
“Yes! Of course!” Sir Owen became excited once again and said, “I really regret it now. I shouldn’t have sold the snakehead on the auction. It’s better to keep it and exchange it with you for Picasso’s paintings.”
But he was quite satisfied with the deal they’ve just made. Although he had exchanged the sculpted chicken head for only three paintings, the deal was purely voluntary and he couldn’t go back on his words, which was the principle in the antique circle.
He added, “Qin, can I give you some of my precious treasures in exchange for a painting of Picasso? I can give you two treasures of Huaxia for each painting.”
Qin Haodong shrugged and said, “Sorry, sir. I know there are lots of treasures in your vault, but I’m not interested in them. All I want are the sculpted animal heads.
“You can first exchange with others for the sculpted heads and then we can make a deal.”
“That’s such a pity. ” Sir Owen said, “But trust me, I’ll definitely spread the news for you. And I’m sure someone will come to you for exchange soon.”
“Thank you, Sir. We have to leave now.”
After bidding goodbye to Sir Owen, Qin Haodong and Nalan Wushuang returned to the villa of the Li family in a hurry.
When they arrived, Sir Owen had already sent the collections to them. But Qin Haodong didn’t care much about these things and put them into the Storage Ring.
After everything was done, he made a simple defensive formation in the room and took out the sculpted chicken head. He unlocked the seal and took out the Upper-Level Spirit Stone.
He asked Nalan Wushuang to protect him and then was ready to absorb the Upper-Level Spirit Stone and enter the later stage of Gold Core.
Nalan Wushuang was already at the 6th level of the supreme power realm, and she was thus strong enough to protect him now.
He held the stone and began to awaken his body. The Genuine Qi was absorbing the Spiritual Qi of the Spirit Stone.
Nalan Wushuang stood aside with the Beauty Thorn to protect him carefully.
The Upper-Level Spirit Stone completely turned into dust with a cracking sound an hour later.
Qin Haodong slowly opened his eyes, but a flicker of disappointment crossed his face.
Nalan Wushuang asked, “How did it go? Have you made a breakthrough?”
Qin Haodong shook his head. His Gold Core was bigger and brighter than before now. But there was still a long way to go to achieve his goal.
It seemed that one Upper-Level Spirit Stone was not enough to help him reach the later stage of the Gold Core if he has already been at the middle stage.
He sighed and realized that the higher his cultivation, the higher the demand for Spiritual Qi would be. There wasn’t enough Spiritual Qi on Earth, and he had to rely on the Upper-Level Spirit Stones in the sculpted animal heads.
He said, “One Upper-Level Spirit Stone is not enough now. I need at least one more. Now our top priority is to find another sculpted animal head.”
Nalan Wushuang replied, “I wonder if Sir Owen would help us to spread the word. He might withhold the information and find the sculpted head himself to exchange with you for Picasso’s paintings. What do you think?”
