192 Black City 2

 Several dusty human masks hung on the wall of the shop.

"Dear customer, is there something you needed?" The owner of the shop spotted Shan Yanxiao, who looked at his shop with interest, and so he immediately went to welcome her.

"Are all these disguise masks?" Shen Yanxiao quirked her eyebrows. Disguise masks are great for long-term use, unlike disguise potions, which one could only use once. The item was also quite useful, and if she were to get a suitable mask, it would save her a considerable sum of money in the future.

"That's right! This is the best mask shop in the entire city! Not only you can search for your favorite mask here, but we can also custom-make a new 'face' according to your requirements." The owner had a brilliant smile as he introduced the various items in his shop eagerly.

"I need a normal mask, something that won't attract attention easily." Shen Yanxiao walked into the shop and looked at the masks on display. The masks had very thin texture, but the workmanship was pretty excellent. Each mask was also different than the other.

"Sure, please wait for a moment. I'll bring a few for you to browse through." The boss smiled and walked to the counter as he rummaged through a few boxes.

It did not matter why you wanted to purchase an item because no one would ask for the reason as long as you could afford to pay for it. That was the advantage of shopping in a black market. All the shops would open their doors for you if you had the money.

Disguise masks were also a popular item there. Thieves, robbers, killers, and mercenaries were among the people who would frequent those types of shops. All of them needed a crucial piece of equipment to conceal their true identity.

"My dear customer, please take a look at these three masks." The shop owner smiled as he opened three wooden boxes and took out three disguise masks.

As per what Shen Yanxiao had requested, the three disguise masks appeared to look quite ordinary. All three wholly-conformed to her request.

Shen Yanxiao quirked her eyebrows and ultimately chose the mask with the appearance of a young man with freckles.

"How much is this?" she asked.

"This is not expensive at all. It only costs three thousand and five hundred gold coins." The shop owner answered with a sincere smile.

Three thousand and five hundred gold coins... that was considered inexpensive!?

Shen Yanxiao thought that prices for disguise potions were already overpriced, but she did not expect the prices of disguise masks to be that astonishing as well.

Three thousand and five hundred gold coins were enough for a family to live comfortably for three whole years!

The Black City was honestly so 'black' that she could not even bear to look straight at it.

Fortunately, Shen Yanxiao had stockpiled a considerable amount of gold coins in her cash reserve. Even though the price pained her, she still bought the mask.

Shen Yanxiao managed to wear the mask with the shop owner's assistance. After she wore it, her plain appearance looked even more ordinary, and she had freckles all over her yellow skin. Her presence would not attract any attention even if she were to stand in a crowd.

"Are all of your masks mass-produced?" Shen Yanxiao asked skeptically as she touched the disguise mask on her face.

She did not want to bump into someone with the same face while she wore it.

The shop owner immediately waved his hands and said, "Customer, I reckon that this must be your first time shopping in Black City. In all the shops that sell disguise masks here, there's only a single copy of each mask. You would not find an identical copy anywhere else, not even in the entire Brilliance Continent. You can rest assured of this. We also guarantee that we will not reveal any information about this mask, and after you've purchased it, I will forget everything about this item."
