Gao Peng didn't want Zhou Tianmin and the others to know about this . It just wasn't the sort of thing one would go around telling others .

If anyone knew what he was doing, they would probably suspect Gao Peng of abusing his position as referee to sway the matches in his favor .

Gao Peng hung up as soon as he told Goldie where to buy lottery tickets .

Goldie put its cell phone back into its bag and absently stood there for a few minutes, then came back to its senses and looked at the stack of crumpled bills inside its bag .

Does master want to steal from me? thought Goldie .

Then it shook its head . That's impossible . Master Gao is the richest person I know! Goldie had always wanted to know how much Gao Peng had in his bank account, but the latter had remained tight-lipped on the subject .

The nearest betting shop was located near the mountain peak on Chinese Redbud Road . Goldie began waddling along the main street until a couple of extravagant-looking manors came into view . As the people living here were extremely rich, the betting shop had little trouble doing business, even during slow hours .

The betting shop was called the Happy Betting Shop, and it was one of the more renowned semi-legal betting shops in the Huaxia region .

To most people in the Huaxia region, everything sounded much better after slapping the word "legal" on it .

The store wasn't huge . However, its interior was extravagantly furnished . There was also a heater running inside, and a wooden screen part.i.tioned the store into two sections . One of them was a break room, where a projector was projecting the World Youth Trainer Champions.h.i.+ps on the wall .

Gambling would always be involved in any compet.i.tion .

There were a couple of people watching the tournament right then on the sofa .

"Did you guys know that this Gao Peng boy lives near my place?" said a thick-browed man in a black s.h.i.+rt while pointing at Gao Peng, whose face was currently on the screen .

"Seriously?" someone said .

"Yeah, he lives in the mountains," said the bushy-browed man, chuckling . He picked up his cup of tea from the table, blew on it a few times, and carefully took a few sips from it .

The man then said to the young man sitting behind the cash register, "Brother Chen, there's no tea left in the teapot . Bring me the tea leaves that I left here last time . "

The young man put down his phone and hurriedly went to do what the man had asked . The man was He Zong, one of the shop's big spenders . Even though he wasn't the manager, everyone working there treated him like one, even the shop's actual manager .

Just then, Brother Chen heard the curtains rustle near the entrance . A new customer had entered the shop .

Brother Chen turned around and saw a strange-looking child in a feathery yellow coat waddle into the place .

Aren't you a bit too young to come to a place like this? he thought . The shop had a no-minor policy .

Brother Chen was just about to say something when he realized that something wasn't right . He rubbed his eyes and took another look at Goldie .

Wait, you're a . . . duck?!

He noticed the sling bag on Goldie's shoulder .

It must have been someone's familiar .

There was nothing odd about this . Brother Chen had seen familiars tend to their masters' errands, like buying groceries, cigarettes, and even lottery tickets .

"Could you please wait there? I'll get back to you as soon as I can," said Brother Chen with a smile . He couldn't risk angering an important customer like He Zong by putting off his order .

When he was done serving tea to He Zong, Brother Chen returned to the counter . "Are you here to buy lottery tickets?"

Goldie tilted its head at him, not understanding a word that Brother Chen was saying . It simply took its phone out of its bag and let him see Gao Peng's message .

"Bet on Zhang Yi of the Huaxia region's victory in the seventh match within ten minutes," the message read .

Brother Chen was taken aback by how specific the duck's bet was .

Zhang Yi's opponent was the number one contestant of the Yagyuu Village of the Neon District, and he had performed quite well in the tournament's first round . On the other hand, Zhang Yi had come in ninth place in the Huaxia region's preliminaries and had barely sc.r.a.ped out a victory in the tournament's first round . Almost no one believed that Zhang Yi could win the next match, which was the reason why his betting odds were 16 to 1 and 98 to 1 for a ten-minute victory .

"How much do you want to bet?" asked Brother Chen . After realizing that Goldie didn't understand what he was saying, he took out an Alliance dollar bill and waved it front of the duck .

Goldie swallowed, then took out a stack of Alliance dollar bills from its bag and placed them on the counter .

Suddenly, Goldie put a dollar bill back into its bag . After looking at the stack of bills on the counter longingly, it squeezed its eyes shut and pushed it towards Brother Chen .

Gao Peng told me that one can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs . I'll be able to eat like a king for the whole month with his winnings . I'll have three pieces of dried fish for every meal: one for my stomach, one to keep for a rainy day, and one to give Silly a good scare .

Brother Chen was stunned to see so much money before him . He began counting it .

After counting the duck's money three times, Brother Chen said, "There's 5,129 . 70 Alliance dollars here . Is this how much you want to wager?"

Goldie looked dumbly at Brother Chen .

Brother Chen repeated his question a few more times . However, the only response he received from Goldie was an empty stare . In the end, he simply gave up and printed out a lottery ticket for Goldie .

Goldie looked at the lottery ticket with a serious expression . He had no idea what was written on it . After placing the ticket inside its bag, Goldie waddled out of the shop .

The seventh match began at half past four in the afternoon .

Li Yu was refereeing the match, which the audience wasn't particularly excited about .

However, the match's outcome caused many jaws to drop . The match ended before it hit the ten-minute mark .

The contestant from Yagyuu village had lost .

Zhang Yi was truly the dark horse of the tournament . Not only was his familiar an Epic-grade Commander-tier monster, it was also a Fire-type, which countered the Yagyuu Village contestant's Wood-type familiar, thought Gao Peng . He had predicted the match's outcome from the start .

Back in the manor, Gao Peng's familiars were all watching the results of the match on the television .

Goldie didn't have a clue what was going on . However, it happily leapt up from the sofa when it received a call from Gao Peng . "Dried fis.h.!.+ Dried fis.h.!.+ Dried fis.h.!.+" Goldie began running around the sofa like an excited child .

Silly looked strangely at Goldie . It didn't have the faintest idea what the duck was so excited about . It simply took out a bottle of fruit juice from its portable s.p.a.ce and let Stripey bite off the lid . It then skillfully inserted a straw into the packet and began happily drinking its fruit juice .

When Goldie finally calmed down, it took the lottery ticket out of its bag and closely observed it . It's a bit ugly, it thought . Where are its feathers, anyway? Goldie then put the ticket back inside its bag and patted it contentedly . This was its meal ticket! Gao Peng didnt want Zhou Tianmin and the others to know about this . It just wasnt the sort of thing one would go around telling others . If anyone knew what he was doing, they would probably suspect Gao Peng of abusing his position as referee to sway the matches in his favor .
