Chapter 633 The Stolen Toilet Paper
Qin Haodong said, “Sir Owen loves Picasso’s painting, but I’m sure he’s a man of integrity and won’t do such nasty things.
“Besides, we’ll soon find out whether he spreads the word nor not. We’ll get the feedback in a few days.”
While they were talking, the phone rang. Qin Haodong picked it up and found that it was Tian Ye.
He answered it and Tian Ye apologized, “Mr. Qin, sorry to disturb you so late at night.”
Qin Haodong said, “It doesn’t matter. Mr. Tian, what happened?”
Tian Ye said excitedly, “Mr. Qin, Sir Owen has just told the entire collection world that you have 30 paintings of Picasso! I can’t believe it! Do you really have so many works of him?”
He was shocked at the news. He had thought that Qin Haodong only had four paintings of Picasso, which was amazing but it turned out that this young man owned dozens of them!
Qin Haodong told him the truth. “Yes. I want to trade the paintings of Picasso for the sculpted heads of the 12 Zodiacs.”
"Mr. Qin, its uneconomical to trade 10 paintings of Picasso for a sculpted animal head. I think you should keep these paintings for appreciation,” advised Tian Ye.
Qin Haodong said, “It’s my dream to bring the sculpted animal heads back to Huaxia. Picasso’s paintings are priceless, but they don’t belong to our nation.”
“Well, Mr. Qin, I really admire your character.”
Qin Haodong asked, “Thank you for your advice. Mr. Tian, anything else?”
Tian Ye added, “Yes, the news that you have 30 paintings of Picasso has already provoked a firestorm in the collection world and many people have gotten the message.”
Qin Haodong said, “That’s great. This is exactly what I want. Only in this way can I make deal with those who have the sculpted animal heads.”
Tian Ye explained, “Well. Mr. Qin, you don’t understand the collection world and the answer isn’t as simple as you might think. The great collectors will react in three different ways to the news.”
“That’s interesting, tell me more,” Qin Haodong said with interest.
“Some who have the sculpted animal heads, as you expected, will rush over to make deal with you.
“Those who don’t have the sculpted animal heads but want to get the paintings will try their best to find the sculpted head to make deal with you.”
Tian Ye paused before he continued. “These two kinds of collectors are what we want. But the point is, some collectors who are eager to get Picasso’s paintings will hire international antique thieves to get your paintings.
“Please, be careful and keep Picasso’s paintings. The thieves might steal them from you.”
"Thank you for reminding me.” Qin Haodong knew that Tian Ye meant well. But then he added, “Please don’t worry. It’s not easy to steal things from me.”
Upon seeing that Qin Haodong didn’t take antique thieves seriously, Tian Ye said nervously, “Mr. Qin, I know you’re powerful, but please don’t look down on the antique robbers.
“There is a group of people who specialize in stealing antiques and even the ancient paintings of the Louvre were once stolen by them. They’re powerful and skilled, please be careful.
“These 30 paintings of Picasso are worth more than billions of yuan in total, which will definitely make these antique thieves crazy. I’m sure they will arrive in Hong Kong soon.”
“I see. Thank you for reminding me.”
Qin Haodong expressed his gratitude once again and then hung up.
In fact, he didn’t take Tian’s words seriously. On one hand, he and Nalan Wushuang were 6th level supreme masters and Zhang Tieniu and some others were still guarding outside. Ordinary thieves couldn’t even get in.
Besides, he didn’t care much about these paintings. If they were lost, he would just spend a few hours making some more.
Nalan Wushuang looked at the paintings and said, “Haodong, these paintings are valuable. Maybe, we can just sell paintings to make money in the future.”
What he made in a few hours could be sold for millions of yuan. Perhaps this was the most profitable business in the world. No wonder she got this idea.
Qin Haodong shook his head and said, “But we know that they’re fake. I won’t feel guilty when I trade these fake paintings for the sculpted animal heads, because these treasures belong to Huaxia.
“But if I use fake paintings to make money, I will feel guilty and internal demons will appear in my mind when I pass the Heavenly Test. It’s just not worth it.”
Nalan Wushuang nodded. She was just saying and didn’t actually mean it.
She walked forward and flung her arms around Qin’s neck. “That’s a pity. I thought that you can help me to improve my cultivation when you’re at the 9th level of the Supreme Power Realm. It feels so good to make huge progress overnight.”
“I can’t help you improve the cultivation, but we can consolidate it.”
Qin Haodong lifted her up and then walked to the big bed.
After a night of pair cultivation, both of them were in high spirits the next morning.
After having breakfast, Nalan Wushuang asked, “What shall we do today?”
Qin Haodong said, “The collectors who want to make deal with us might come here a few days later. So, let’s use our spare time to have a look at the Divine Dragon Island.”
He remembered what Tian Ye had said before leaving, so he used the magic to make the painting of Picasso look like an alarm clock, and turned a roll of toilet paper into the paintings.
They drove the car arranged by Uncle Cheng to the dock and then boarded the boat. He asked the crew sent by Uncle Cheng to take a break and navigated the boat to the Divine Dragon Island all by himself.
The island was about 50 or 60 kilometers away from the shore, so they arrived after half an hour.
The island was of medium size and the tide was out when they arrived. Qin measured it with his eyes and found it was about 10 square kilometers.
The island sounded grand and Qin didn’t know why it got this name. But it looked desolate and bare, and there were only a few plants here.
Perhaps that was the reason why this island had always been abandoned and didn’t attract the developer’s attention.
It didn’t take long for the two of them to walk around it. But they didn’t find anything special.
Obviously, Nalan Wushuang was not satisfied with the environment here. She asked, “Why did Mei Zhanlong choose this place for the final battle? Is he trying to set you up?”
Qin Haodong said, “This is an isolated island. He might find it easier to kill me here, or maybe he has some other ulterior motives. He’s the only one who knows the real reason.”
Nalan Wushuang asked, “Then what should we do? Are you 100% sure of defeating him?”
Qin Haodong said, “Yes. But we have to do our best to prepare since we’re already here.”
Then he took out formation flags from the Storage Ring and scattered them everywhere while walking quickly around the island.
After setting up the formation, he went back and Nalan Wushuang asked, “What kind of formation is this? Why hasn’t I heard a sound?”
“It hasn’t been activated yet and of course you can’t see or feel anything unusual.” Qin Haodong explained, “This is called the Thunder of Nine Heavens, and I wouldn’t have set it up if I were not at the middle stage of the Gold Core.
“But I’m not strong enough to make it cover the entire island. It only works here, about one kilometer around the top of the mountain.”
Nalan Wushuang said, “Is it very useful?”
“Of course. The Thunder of Nine Heavens can make use of the thunder power and ordinary people are no match for it.”
“I’ve never seen a formation before. Can I have a look?”
There was no one around, so Qin Haodong raised his hand and shot a spell into the air.
The Thunder of Nine Heavens was immediately activated. Within a kilometer of the center of the island, dark clouds suddenly gathered, and thunder rumbled. It looked just like Doomsday.
He used another spell to close the formation and the sky was clear now.
Nalan Wushuang cried, “Wow, it’s amazing! I want to learn it too.”
“Forget it, you can’t learn the formation overnight.” Qin Haodong brought her back to the yacht and said, “Let’s go back. Maybe those who want to exchange with us for Picasso’s painting are coming.”
They returned to the dock and drove to Li’s Villa.
Not long after they left, another small boat was coming in the direction of the Divine Dragon Island.
They arrived at the villa and Qin Haodong felt that something was wrong when he got out of the car. It seemed that someone had come here.
He asked Zhang Tieniu who was guarding the room, “Did something happen when I was not here?”
Zhang Tieniu said, “Boss, nothing happened. Everything is just fine.”
“Be careful these days. I’m sure some thieves might come here.”
Then Qin Haodong and Nalan Wushuang went back to their room. He found that the toilet paper was gone the minute he came in. Obviously, someone had visited this place.
He removed the illusion around the alarm clock and those paintings of Picasso were lying there quietly.
Nalan Wushuang exclaimed, “The antique thieves are amazing. How can they come into our room without alerting Zhang Tieniu in the daytime? Fortunately, you used the spell, or else, the paintings would have been stolen.”
Qin Haodong nodded and said, “We have to be more careful. Although all these paintings were actually made by me, the collectors might not exchange with me if they heard the news of the missing Picasso’s paintings.”
But then he laughed again, “I wonder what the thief will feel when they suddenly realize that they had just stolen a roll of toilet paper!”
