Xiao Ning’er flushed
slightly red as she nodded. A feeling of sweetness filled her heart. She didn’t
care about the demon spirit; what she liked was the fact that Nie Li was
obviously concerned for her. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have said something like
that after Ye Xuan’s offer. As for how Nie Li might’ve gotten a God Level
growth rate Dragon Bloodline, Xiao Ning’er didn’t think too much about it. In
her heart, Nie Li had always been an omnipotent existence.
Ye Xuan tightly
clenched his right fist when he saw Xiao Ning’er act all bashful at whatever
Nie Li had said to her as he couldn’t hear their conversation. An
unsuppressable jealousy rose within his heart. She only showed such an
expression when she was in front of Nie Li.
Following that one
were five more Extraordinary Level growth rate Dragon Bloodlines, each of which
sold for over twenty-five thousand spiritual stones. The crowd became rather
confused. In the past, such powerful demon spirits only appeared in ones or
twos, so why were there so many this time?
All the Dragon
Bloodline Extraordinary Level growth rate demon spirits were purchased by the
Skyblaze Sect’s disciples. They must certainly be wealthy to afford so much, or
at least much wealthier than the disciples of the Divine Feathers Sect. Indeed,
the Skyblaze Sect deserved to be the head of the six major sects!
Gu Bei made some rough
calculations. If there were twenty Extraordinary growth rate demon spirits,
didn’t that mean over five hundred thousand spiritual stones? That was simply a
shocking amount of wealth. Except he didn’t know how much the manufacturing costs
were, since he had always passed the spiritual stones back to Nie Li.
Nie Li knew that
Dragon Bloodline Extraordinary Level growth rate demon spirits were rare, but
he’d originally thought fifteen thousand spiritual stones would already make a
great sale. He never expected its actual price to be so high. Although, of
course this was also linked to the fact that the Skyblaze Sect’s disciples were
Extraordinary Level growth rate Dragon Bloodline demon spirits aren’t easy to
find. As long as those demon spiritualists didn’t already have one, they
definitely won’t let go of such a chance.
“Next, we will auction
a bottle of Demon Soul’s Essence. This bottle has already been appraised, and
has been determined to be of the Heavenly Star level. The starting bid is ten
thousand spiritual stones!” Qin Yue lightly smiled as she continued, “Is anyone
Demon Soul’s Essence
can greatly enhance a demon spirit’s strength. Now that Nie Li had a Dragon
Bloodline God Level growth rate demon spirit, of course he wasn’t going to be
stingy. Furthermore, a Heavenly Star level Demon Soul’s Essence would have an
extremely powerful effect on a Heavenly Fate Realm demon spirit.
Nie Li never expected
that the auction would start with such a precious item. The auction was
probably trying to bring the excitement up first. Everyone in this side chamber
was among the elites of the three major sects. Therefore, ordinary items
definitely wouldn’t incite their interests.
The crowd couldn’t
help looking over to their table. Those two who’re sitting at the same table
don’t look too friendly with each other. Well, since there seemed to be
something entertaining going on, they stopped their own conversations to watch
just how high the two of them would raise the price.
Anything over ten
thousand spiritual stones would already be considered a huge sum for Murong Yu.
Even after he’d saved for so many years, he only had a rough total of fifteen
thousand spiritual stones!
Ye Xuan couldn’t help
giving Murong Yu and Gu Bei weird looks. Even Ye Xuan only had a little over
thirty thousand spiritual stones and would’ve carefully considered the thought
of buying this bottle of Demon Soul’s Essence. This Gu Bei seemed to be pretty
Veins popped out from
Murong Yu’s neck. Even though he was well aware that what Gu Bei was only doing
this to piss him off, he didn’t have enough money to bid higher. What really
enraged Murong Yu was Gu Bei’s contemptuous attitude.
Gu Bei glanced at
Murong Yu. “Letting me have it? You’re too conceited. There seems to be many
others also bidding for it. If you don’t have money, then don’t join in the
bidding. What a joke!” Gu Bei was aware that Murong Yu had snatched Nie Li’s
spiritual stone rewards inside the Ghastly Ruins, so of course he wouldn’t look
kindly on Murong Yu.
Murong Yu tightly clenched
his fists. He’d always been proud and aloof, so of course he couldn’t swallow
mockery from other people. But in this kind of situation, he didn’t dare to
flip in rage. Not to mention that Gu Bei was also someone from the Gu Clan.
After that came five
more bottles of Demon Soul’s Essence, but all were of the Heavenly Fate level,
leaving none of the Heavenly Star level. They priced somewhere around two to
three thousand spiritual stones each. Murong Yu was rather dispirited. Although
Heavenly Fate level Demon Soul’s Essence had some uses, there weren’t terribly
many. If it wasn’t of the Heavenly Star level, then there wasn’t any point in
Xiao Ning’er should be
Nie Li’s woman and this Ye Xuan was clearly trying to snatch his brother’s
woman. So, of course, Gu Bei wouldn’t be kind to him! As far as Gu Bei was
concerned, this Ye Xuan didn’t seem to be some hotshot either. According to
other people, Gu Bei was just a lousy good-for-nothing; so, of course, he
proceeded to put on a good-for-nothing act. Otherwise, he’d be letting down
that nickname! Gu Bei sneered. “I hate people who like to pretend to be rich,
but in reality aren’t!”
Ye Xuan coughed as
fury rose within his heart. Who did this Gu Bei think he was? He was just a
descendant of the Gu Clan, but he was actually daring to be so arrogant? If
they weren’t inside the Divine Feathers Sect’s territory, Xe Yuan would
definitely have him grow some brain.
After such intense
conflicts, the atmosphere by the table was naturally rather sour. A few people
from a neighboring table looked over and immediately understood the situation
when they saw Gu Bei. Gu Bei was a famed good-for-nothing. It’d actually be
unusual to see him not having an argument or in a fight with someone. Not to
mention that there were two beauties currently sitting at that table. No wonder
the smell of gunpowder was so heavy.
Long Yuyin quietly sat
beside Nie Li, seemingly uninterested in the items being auctioned. She
realised that she was a little unnecessary over here. Nearly everyone’s
attention was involuntarily focused on Xiao Ning’er.
Long Yuyin recalled
her grandmother’s words. “Yin’er, with that fiery temper of yours, no one will
like you, regardless of how beautiful you are. You have to change.” In the
past, she was never bothered by it, and was even somewhat disdainful of the
advice. Since when did she, Long Yuyin, need a man to love? But, now that she
re-examined and compared herself to Xiao Ning’er, she couldn’t help feeling
The auction continued
with the next item, a bottle of Heavenly Note Dew. The Heavenly Note Dew is a
product refined by the Heavenly Note Sect’s alchemists using various herbs. Its
herbal effect is even more effective than spiritual stones. However, the
crucial part was the fact that the Heavenly Note Dew could be easily absorbed;
that was why it’s effects were even more obvious!
Qin Yue lightly
smiled, “Please, everyone, you don’t all have to be anxious over this one
bottle. On this trip to the Divine Feathers Sect, we brought a hundred bottles
and will be selling in sets of ten. If you’re interested, but cannot buy all
ten together, then you’re welcome to bid with friends!”
The starting price for
ten bottles of Heavenly Note Dew was ten thousand spiritual stones. However,
the bidding didn’t raise the price terribly high and stopped at around eleven to
twelve thousand spiritual stones. After all, there were still eighty bottles
left! Furthermore, all of the Heavenly Note Sect’s disciples had backed off on
this bid, leaving only the Skyblaze and Divine Feathers Sect disciples.
Therefore, there was no need for such an intense competition.
However, to everyone’s
dismay, Gu Bei took thirty bottles of Heavenly Note Dew all for himself. Gu Bei
secretly had to admit that he felt great when buying all of it. He’d never felt
this great at spending money, even though all the money belonged to Nie Li.
