Treasure Pavilion, the fifth floor of the cabinet.

"This is where I usually live, you can sit wherever you want!"

Yan Lao led Xiao Yi into the house, seeing Ethan Xiao looking at the collections around him, with a smug expression on his face, he said with a smile, "Little brother, do my collections catch your eye?"

Ethan Xiao nodded: "They are all rare treasures!"

"That's natural. This is the hard work of most of my life!"

Elder Yan took out ten bank notes with a denomination of 10,000 and handed them to Ethan Xiao, "Here are 100,000 taels of silver, and they are all bank notes of Sky Blue Silver Ship, order them!"

The Sky Blue Silver Ship is the property of the royal family of the Sky Blue King. You can go to the Sky Blue Silver Ship to exchange cash, or you can use it directly!

Ethan Xiao didn't really go to count and put the bank notes in his arms.

This made Yan Lao show a look of satisfaction, carefully put the statue on the cabinet, and said: "Little brother, don't you know your name yet?"

"Ethan Xiao!"

"Ethan Xiao? Are you that good-for-nothing son-in-law of the Fang family?"

A look of surprise flashed across Yan Lao's face, and he said hastily, "I'm sorry..."

Ethan Xiao shrugged: "No problem!"

Old Yan was secretly surprised. It was rumored that Fang Qingzhu, the heavenly daughter of the Fang family, married a good-for-nothing son-in-law. As a result, Fang Qingzhu's dantian was abolished, and he even lost his position as the heir to the family head.

But looking at Ethan Xiao in front of him, he really couldn't connect the two.

But Ethan Xiao himself didn't say anything, and Yan Lao didn't want to be bored, so he changed the subject without a trace: "Ethan Xiao, I have quite a few peerless treasures here, are you interested in taking a look?"

"It's an honor!" Xiao Yi said.

Yan Lao immediately led Ethan Xiao to appreciate his collection.

I have to admit that Yan Lao's collection is indeed rich, including many rare treasures.

The value of these collections alone is probably no less than the property of any of the four major families.

"Ethan Xiao, come here!"

Yan Lao pointed to the gold-rimmed picture scroll on the wall, with a bewildered smile on his face.

Ethan Xiao glanced at it, and it was a picture of autumn frost and wind and rain: "The brush strokes are thick and vigorous, and the brush is smooth, easy to draw."

Yan Lao looked at Ethan Xiao's eyes with more and more approval, and said quite proudly, "Brother Ethan Xiao has good eyesight, this painting is the authentic work of Tommy Tang, and among my collections, this painting is enough to Ranked among the top ten, there was a prince who offered 800,000 taels of silver, and I was not willing to give it up!"

The triumphant Yan Lao noticed that Ethan Xiao's brows were frowned, and he was staring at the painting closely, as if he had discovered something wrong.

Yan Lao wondered: "What? Is there something wrong with this painting?"

Ethan Xiao said in a deep voice: "The painting is weird!"


Yan Lao called Ethan Xiao to stop, frowned and said, "Ethan Xiao, you mean this painting is fake? It's impossible, besides me, there are several other old fellows who have authenticated it, and this is definitely Tommy Tang authentic work! "

"The painting is real, but the author might be someone else!" Xiao Yi said.

"Where did you come from, you dare to comment on the teacher's collection? I think you are just sensationalizing..."

At this moment, a cold voice came from behind.

A tall and graceful woman in a fiery red cheongsam, with black hair fluttering behind her, appeared behind the two of them. She bowed respectfully to Old Yan, and greeted, "Teacher, this disciple came in when he saw the door was open!"

"No problem!"

Yan Lao waved his hand and introduced, "Ethan Xiao, this is my disciple Lynn Frost. Icy Heart, this is Ethan Xiao!"

Ethan Xiao nodded: "Hello!"

"I feel bad!"

But Lynn Frost looked at Ethan Xiao indifferently, her eyes were full of disgust, "My teacher has studied Tommy Tang paintings for decades, and if anyone in the Sky Blue Kingdom is the most familiar with Tommy Tang's works, he will take the second place." Absolutely no one dares to be number one. I don’t know where you got the courage to dare to say that there is something wrong with the authentic works of Tommy Tang in my teacher’s collection!”


Yan Lao glared at Bing Xin, and looked at Ethan Xiao Icy Heart , "Little brother Ethan Xiao, but this painting is my favorite treasure. You just said that it is not Tommy Tang's painting? Is there any basis? "

Lynn Frost raised her chin slightly like a proud swan: "The teacher is right, if you can tell how ugly you are, I, Lynn Frost, will obey you!"

Ethan Xiao glanced at her, and said lightly: "Whether you accept it or not, does it have anything to do with me?"


Lynn Frost face froze.

She is as famous as Fang Qingzhu, Lynn Frost who is known as the four beauties of Nanhuang City!

Which man is not obedient and vying to please her when he sees her?

How could Ethan Xiao treat her with such disdain?

Lynn Frost gritted her teeth immediately, and said fiercely: "If this painting is true, I will call you Grandpa! If this painting is true, you will kneel down and apologize like my master!"

"Being my granddaughter? You're too old!"Ethan Xiao looked Lynn Frost up and down, and said, "But it's almost like being my niece!"

Lynn Frost's teeth were itching in anger, and he gritted his teeth and said, "Okay! It's a deal!"

Yan Lao hesitated for a moment, and said in a deep voice: "Ethan Xiao, if you prove the problem with this painting, you can choose from my treasures. Isn't your Fang Family Patriarch going to hold a birthday banquet tomorrow? You come to my Treasure Pavilion should also be looking for a birthday gift, right?"

Lynn Frost face changed, which of the treasures here is not priceless?

"Since Mr. Yan likes Tommy Tang so much, he should know that among the four talented scholars in the past, although Tang Pu was called a master of calligraphy and painting, he is actually better at painting than calligraphy."

Ethan Xiao asked Lynn Frost to take down the scroll, and asked for a dagger, spread the scroll on the table, and continued: "Among the four great talents, the one who is the best at books is Golden Trace, a life-threatening scholar. Golden Trace killed too much, almost all of his calligraphy were destroyed, and there are not many left."

Lynn Frost exuded the coldness that no one should enter, and her beautiful brows were frowned: "Death-killing scholar? What does it have to do with this painting?"

"It's good to see!"

The dagger in Ethan Xiao's hand plunged into the edge of the scroll, and cut across the perimeter of the picture with a chirp.

Lynn Frost screamed in fright: "Are you trying to destroy this painting?"

There was an inexplicable look in Yan Lao's eyes, and he didn't say a word, but his clenched fists were a little pale, obviously his heart was in turmoil at the moment.


But at this moment, Xiao Yi suddenly raised his hand, and the layer of autumn water on the surface was lifted up, revealing a picture of a young man beating a tiger with a sword.

On the left side of the picture scroll are four big characters flying like dragons and phoenixes - the picture of Fuhujian.

In the upper right corner, there is also a poem written by a dragon and a snake: holding a Qingfeng sword, wearing a white jade, hungry for the head of a beautiful chief, and thirsty for the blood of the enemy. Children's love, let's throw it away, Han Haizhi, only now. A man travels thousands of miles with a sword, and the journey of a thousand miles is uneven.

The handwriting is vigorous and powerful, like dragons flying and phoenixes dancing, and between the lines there is infinite sword intent soaring into the sky.

The place where it was signed was the words Golden Trace!



"It's really not Tommy Tang authentic work, even the teacher missed it?"

"And this Ethan Xiao actually saw the mystery with just one glance?"

Lynn Frost gasped, dumbfounded.

"A man travels thousands of miles with a sword, and the journey is uneven! What a life-threatening scholar, what a picture of a tiger-hunting sword... It is said that Tommy Tang and Golden Trace even made friends. It must be because Tommy Tang didn't want to see Golden Trace's masterpiece lost. , I deliberately used my own transformation to cover it up and preserve it. I never thought that I, Mr. Yan, thought that I was the first person to appraise treasures in the Southern Wilderness, but I hadn't even discovered such a big flaw..."

Yan Lao blushed and looked at Ethan Xiao, "Ethan Xiao, I'm willing to accept the bet, this volume of Crouching Tiger Sword is yours!"

"Thank you! But although the painting belongs to me, the sword formula still belongs to Yan Lao."Ethan Xiao picked up the scroll and glanced at the sword formula on it. Although he accepted the painting, he didn't want to owe this favor, and said : "Old Yan, please listen carefully!"

"Sword! Break! Slash! Destroy..."

Yan Lao, who was talking about Ethan Xiao's words, was a little puzzled, but following Ethan Xiao's words, he was completely shocked, and the spiritual energy in his whole body was suddenly drawn and surged.

Every word in Ethan Xiao's mouth was like a Sanskrit sound, and it came into his eyes in the form of a human being.

This... is teaching swordsmanship!

He has never heard of such a method!

But in shock, Mr. Yan also instantly regained his concentration. Looking at the handwriting that had turned into a villain one by one, dancing a series of sword moves, his eyes burst out with terrifying brilliance, and he was completely immersed in it.

Less than half a stick of incense.

A sword intent burst out from Yan Lao's body, and then he suddenly took two steps back, and respectfully bowed to Ethan Xiao Yi: "Master, please accept disciple Yan Mingli to bow!"

"Ah? Teacher, you..."Lynn Frost was startled.

"I have no intention of accepting apprentices, you and I should still be taught by our peers, as for this swordsmanship, you deserve it!"Ethan Xiao glanced at Old Yan.

"No way!"

Yan Lao shook his head hastily. If it was just an accident that Ethan Xiao saw through the picture of the Fuhu Sword when he identified the Jinyao Shiling before, but now, Bian has been completely convinced, preaching the word with his voice, and comprehended a third-grade advanced sword art in half a stick of writing time. , Such methods are definitely not available to ordinary people!

This kneeling, Ethan Xiao can definitely bear it!

If he can learn from his teacher, Yan Mingli will definitely be able to reach new heights!

However, Ethan Xiao refused to accept apprentices, so Yan Lao could only say: "I can't force you if you don't want to accept apprentices, but it is absolutely impossible to talk about friendship among peers. How about this, from now on I will call you Young Master Xiao in front of outsiders , if there are no outsiders to call you a teacher, do you think it is so good?"


Ethan Xiao waved his hands and said, "I still have something to do, so I'll take my leave first!"

"Teacher, go slowly!" Yan Lao said respectfully.

The corner of Ethan Xiao mouth twitched, and when he passed by Lynn Frost he smiled slightly: "My dear niece, uncle, I'm going first!"


Lynn Frost's face was flushed with anger, her cheeks were bulging, and she looked at Old Yan angrily, "Teacher, look at him taking advantage of me..."

"Taking advantage of you? Good boy, teacher, I wish I could be his nephew!" Old Yan joked with a wry smile.

Lynn Frost was taken aback: "Teacher, why do you value him so much? He is just lucky..."

"Good luck? If you're lucky, you can see the spirit of gold and stone within a day? If you're lucky, you can see the mystery of this tiger sword diagram? Can you also let me master a third-grade high-level sword art within half a stick of incense?"

Lin Lynn Frost Lao's words. Hearing what he said, Ethan Xiao seemed really powerful!

"Everyone says that Xiao Tianjiao, the eldest Xavier Proud of the Xiao family, is the reincarnation of a real dragon. Although I have never met Xavier Proud, the second young master of the Xiao family is absolutely extraordinary. People in the world have poor eyesight!"

Yan Lao took a deep breath, his cloudy eyes filled with wisdom, and looked at Lynn Frost, "Icy Heart Xin, go and prepare a congratulatory gift. I'm going to Fang's house tomorrow!"
