“Let’s go have dinner.” Mu Chongyan glanced at Kuku with displeasure, and said softly to Bai Rong.
“Okay…” Bai Rong nodded, showing a sweet smile to Mu Chongyan, and then pulled on Kuku’s arm, dragging him to the living room.
Smiling at your wife first, and then pulling along Kuku to head to the place together, wouldn’t be a show of favoritism right…
During the meal, Lu Kun glanced at the rings on Bai Rong and Mu Chongyan’s hands, and a hint of surprise appeared in his eyes. He lowered his head in silence and continued to eat.
Lu Ya seemed to have discovered a whole new world, his eyes sweeping back and forth in curiosity between Mu Chongyan and Bai Rong, and the corners of his lips curled up in a secret smile.
Bai Rong was a little embarrassed being seen through, the thumb of his left hand subconsciously rubbing the ring.
After the meal, the group was ready to go to the Mercenary Guild to take up a new mission, but just after leaving the yard, Bai Rong’s footsteps came to a pause as he suddenly remembered something.
“Chongyan.” Bai Rong turned his head to look at Mu Chongyan, “Were…the things you prepared yesterday expensive?”

“You spent 7,000 ash coins?!” Bai Rong’s voice grew higher, “Those things from yesterday were that expensive?!”
“It was……alright.” Seeing that his Little Sweet Cake was hung up on different point, Mu Chongyan felt a little helpless, “If it wasn’t because it’s not a good time to squander money, I wouldn’t spent the entire 20,000 ash coins on you.”
“!” Bai Rong blushed.
“So… don’t blame me.” Mu Chongyan gently hooked his arms around Bai Rong’s shoulders, “Otherwise, I’ll be very sad.”
“I, I wasn’t blaming you!” Bai Rong hurriedly raised his face and explained, “I’m just a little surprised…”
“That’s good.” Mu Chongyan pretended to breathe a sigh of relief, and smiled, squeezing Bai Rong’s hand.
“Brother Mu, you’re…you’re too amazing!!!”
Seeing that his idol and Brother Mu had finished their loving display, Luya couldn’t help but speak out.
Hearing that the playboy spent seven thousand ash coins on his brother all at once, Kuku secretly harrumphed with rare satisfaction.
Looks like this playboy was quite willing to spend money on his brother, which can be considered a merit.
“It’s not that amazing.” Mu Chongyan smiled and continued to tell Bai Rong, “Rong Rong, I’ll go and give you those ash coins, okay? See if there’s anything you want to buy, and let’s buy it on the way.”
“…Okay.” Seeing that his wife first thought of him no matter how much money he earned, Bai Rong felt slightly touched and nodded his head lightly.
“Alright, wait for me for a while.” Mu Chongyan pushed open the courtyard door and reentered the house.
After taking out the ash coins, Mu Chongyan handed it directly to Bai Rong, but after walking for a while, Mu Chongyan felt that the ash coin may be a little heavy to carry, so he took the bag from Bai Rong’s hand.
“I’ll carry it since it’s quite heavy.”
“…Okay.” Bai Rong felt his heart turn warm and sweet. His wife was so considerate, he was truly the best wife in the universe!
The gang passed by two shops selling mechanical vehicles on the way to the mercenary guild when Bai Rong cast a glance and suddenly stopped in his tracks.
Seeing Bai Rong staring at a black four-wheeled mechanical car with bright eyes, Mu Chongyan said, “Shall we go in and have a look?”
“Yeah!” Bai Rong pulled Mu Chongyan’s arm excitedly and went inside.
“Hello, what kind of car are the sirs looking for?” A staff greeted them immediately with a business-like smile.
“How many ash coins does this kind of car cost?” Bai Rong pointed to the fierce-looking mechanical car.
“You have such a good eye!” The staff complimented before continuing with a smile, “The car you are looking at is a new model. All of its parts are made of high-grade metal which is very strong. The car interior is also very spacious. Fitting six or seven people would be a cinch. Moreover, the rear compartment is also very spacious. You can place twenty-three large animals inside. Even if you have something that doesn’t fit, you don’t have to worry. The carriage can carry heaven and earth.”
The staff opened the rear compartment and pressed a button. Several stacks of black metal plates popped up from the bottom of the compartment. Then, the staff pulled the stack of metal plates and it immediately extended to a length of seven or eight meters and a width of nearly three meters.
“As long as you fasten the prey firmly to this, you can easily bring it back.” The staff pressed a button on it and said, “This metal plate is very strong and can bear a weight of twelve tons. You don’t have to worry about it collapsing.”
“Isn’t this still a low-grade mechanical car?” Bai Rong blinked. Since weapons made of high-grade metal are only high-grade among low-grade weapons, then this mechanical car made of high-grade metal should also be a low-grade mechanical car right…
“This…” The smile on the staff’s face turned stiff, and he quickly responded, “You can’t really say that. Although there are also intermediate mechanical cars, most people can’t afford them. Even if they had the money, it would be very difficult for them to spend it so this is already considered a very good mechanical car.”
“So, how much is this car?”
“Sixty-eight thousand gray coins if you buy it now!”
“Sixty-eight?” Bai Rong frowned, “It’s too expensive. It’s just a low-grade mechanical car.”
“You can’t say that.” The staff pointed to a small mechanical car on the other side, “That one is cheap but the parts are all middle-grade metal. Once you encounter a mutant beast above the third level, the car would almost lose all resistance. If you get secretly attacked by a mutant beast, then there’s an 80% chance you won’t be able to escape!”
“How many ash coins is that one?” Bai Rong glanced at the mechanical car and found it to be quite satisfactory. Even though it didn’t look sturdy, it still looked good.
Although the resistance was a little bit weak, he didn’t mind it too much. After all, with his perception, it would be a piece of cake to avoid surprise attacks by mutant beasts in advance, so this car basically met their basic needs.
“That one costs 29,000 ash coins.”
“Twenty-nine…can it be cheaper?”
“…It could be, but not by much.” Seeing Bai Rong quickly shift his sights to another product so quickly, the staff was a little disappointed, but thinking that selling one could earn him more commissions, he still responded positively.
“How much cheaper can it go for?”
“If you pay in full, I can give you an 8% discount using staff price.” The staff member took out a calculator and quickly pressed a few numbers. “The price would be 26,680 ash coins.”
“Pay in full?” Bai Rong’s eyes flashed, “Is there any other way aside from paying in full?”
“Of course.” The staff nodded, “After all, mechanical vehicles are more expensive so our car dealer set up a special loan model, but the conditions are more stringent.”
“What are the conditions? Can mercenary groups borrow money?”
“In the case of the mercenary group…only mercenary groups above the third level are allowed to borrow money and the loan requirements are different. Among them, the third-level mercenary group must pay more than 70% of the down payment whereas fourth-level and fifth-level mercenary groups can pay 60%.”
“70%?” Bai Rong quickly did the numbers in his heart, and found that 70% was exactly 20,300. It was just the right amount they could afford to pay, “What’s the interest rate?”
“The interest…” The staff paused and said, “The interest rate on the loan for third-level mercenary groups is relatively high, it’s 6% per month. For fourth and fifth level mercenary groups, it’s lower, taking only about 4%.”
