“He hit you,” Gu Yue said, tone cold enough to freeze.
“I’m fine,” said Tang Wulin, smiling wryly. “I’ve got thick skin, you know?”
Gu Yue pouted. “No one else is allowed to hit you other than me.”
Whatever expression Tang Wulin had worn froze on the spot. But after a moment, he couldn’t help but smile. “What kind of rule is that? Why are you allowed to hit me?”
Gu Yue raised her chin proudly. “I can because I say so. Do you have a problem with that?”
“No. No problem.” After so many years of working together, he knew well enough there was no arguing with her when she got into these moods. It was best to just nod and smile.
Because of his helpless affirmation, a smile blossomed on Gu Yue’s face. “Good. Let’s go then.” She twisted her wrist out of Tang Wulin’s hold, and now it was her that pulled him along. Her mood was much better than before. Her eyes twinkled as she scanned the shops around them, hunting for anything of interest.
“Look! There’s a metal shop over there. I wonder what kind of metals they have in Star Luo. Let’s check it out,” Gu Yue said, dragging Tang Wulin toward the store.

The shop clerk’s eyes lit up.He’s asking for an assay hammer! This kid’s a pro!Only experts who truly understood metals would ask for an assay hammer when shopping for metals. Using the assay hammer, they would tap the metal to figure out the differences between each chunk..
“Yes we do, I’ll get it for you immediately,” the shop clerk said, disappearing to the back of the store. A few moments later, the clerk returned, a small hammer in his hands. He presented it to Tang Wulin.
Tang Wulin made his way to the shelves and lightly tapped a blue metal he had never seen before. A deep metallic note rang in the air. His ear twitched as he listened to it. A moment later, the note faded into silence. This signified a weak metal. Although it looked quite solid, after purifying it, there would be little left of its original bulk. Its basic attributes and properties were poor as well, such that it wasn’t even worth his time.
The shop clerk followed along as Tang Wulin went down the shelves, tapping any metal he was unfamiliar with. As the clerk watched, his astonishment grew. Tang Wulin’s evaluations of the metals were all swift and
