The auction continued
for another half an hour, after which the accounts were settled. After the
calculations had finished, Gu Bei had spent around one hundred and
seventy-eighty thousand spiritual stones. Of course, he still had quite a bit
of money left over. He placed all of his new purchases and the remaining
spiritual stones into the interspatial ring, then secretly passed the ring to
Qin Yue smiled sweetly
as she said, “I’m sure everyone can’t wait to see the main event for this
auction. This item is extremely extraordinary, a treasure from ancient times.
However, we have not determined its uses, till this day. As far as we’re aware,
it can increase your cultivating speed. However, no one can deny its value. A
mysterious and unnamed higher up from one of the major sects has placed it in
this auction, so that it may find its fated owner!”
A sweet smile appeared
on Qin Yue’s face as she removed the cloth, revealing a scroll-like item. She
held it up and slowly unfurled it. “Even till this day, we cannot determine
exactly what this item is. The only thing we know is that this item is
Everyone fixed their
eyes on the item Qin Yue held in her hands. What she held wasn’t a text scroll,
but actually a painting. The paper depicted a spacious land that had distant
mountains, and a river flowing in between. Four vigorous ancient letters were
written there: Myriad Miles Rivers and Mountains.
According to the
Temporal Demon Spirit Book’s records, this painting was drawn by a supreme
existence from ancient times. That expert had used all of his intent to create
this this Myriad Miles Rivers and Mountains Painting, thereby exhausting all
energy. This item wasn’t simply supposed to be a cultivation aid!
Nie Li sensed that
there were definitely strings attached. Otherwise, there was no way that such a
shocking treasure would simply be brought out for auction. However, he
definitely wouldn’t let such a treasure go! If he could tap into all of the
Myriad Miles Rivers and Mountains Painting’s abilities, it would definitely
become one of his cornerstones in his fight against the Sage Emperor!
Qin Yue lightly smiled
at everyone, “I’ll bet that everyone knows that this definitely isn’t a simple
item. Under normal circumstances, this item definitely wouldn’t appear in this
auction. However, we have been mystified over it. Since we don’t know its uses,
it only serves as a decoration for us. Even the mysterious higher-up who took
this painting out doesn’t know of its uses as well!”
Everyone was well
aware that such a treasure definitely had numerous uses. However, that
higher-up who was willing to sell this treasure couldn’t discover its uses?
People like themselves could just forget about it! Since this item was the
finale of the show, it definitely wouldn’t be cheap. If they spent a fortune
buying such a useless item, that’d be too much of a loss!
Qin Ye lightly smiled.
“The higher-up who is selling this Myriad Miles Rivers and Mountains Painting
said that regardless of who it is, if someone can discover even one use of this
Myriad Miles Rivers and Mountains Painting, he will be willing to buy it back
for two hundred thousand spiritual stones. If no one knows of its uses, then he
will sell the painting. The starting price is one hundred thousand spiritual
Nie Li furrowed his
brows briefly. It looked like this higher-up was really stumped. He didn’t seem
to actually want to sell the painting, but he couldn’t figure out any of its
uses. Therefore, he really didn’t have much of a choice.
That price itself
could easily remove the majority of the competition. Amongst those gathered
here, only a few could even participate. One hundred thousand spiritual stones.
That wasn’t something ordinary people could afford.
Throughout this long
auction, Yan Yang hadn’t made a single bid. The number of items that could
catch his attention was nearly zero. However, he’d finally started to bid for
this Myriad Miles Rivers and Mountains Painting.
Long Tianming couldn’t
help furrowing his brows briefly when he heard Yan Yang’s bid. Once Yan Yang
joined the competition, Long Tianming would no longer be a decent competitor
for the painting. Therefore, he could only hope that Yan Yang wasn’t terribly
interested in the painting.
Yan Yang went silent
for a moment as he spoke, “By right, if Senior Sister Mingyue is interested, I
should let Senior Sister Mingyue have it. Unfortunately, I’m also quite
interested in this Myriad Miles Rivers and Mountains Painting. Furthermore,
this item seems to compliment my cultivation technique, so I don’t want to miss
it. I hope that Senior Sister Mingyue won’t be offended!” Yan Yang wasn’t on
good terms with Long Tianming but he was obviously more polite towards Mingyue
“Two hundred thousand
spiritual stones!” Yan Yang continued bidding.
"200,000 หินจิตวิญญาณ"หยาน หยางประมูลต่อ
The painting’s price
had reached two hundred thousand spiritual stones! That was simply too shocking
a sum. Even if people like Ye Xuan and Murong Ye emptied their entire fortunes,
they still wouldn’t be able to gather so many spiritual stones!
With Yan Yang’s
frightening wealth, the others were probably too scared to compete. Just when
everyone believed that the Myriad Miles Rivers and Mountains Painting would
fall into Yan Yang’s hands, Gu Bei’s voice sounded. “I heard from an Elder that
this Myriad Miles Rivers and Mountains Painting has been laid with the Myriad
Spiritual Lock. Even a Martial Ancestor Realm expert wouldn’t be able to solve
it. So even if Young Master Yan Yang gets it, you probably won’t find too many
uses for it. I’ll bid two hundred ten thousand spiritual stones!”
The observers couldn’t
help finding the situation rather funny. On one hand, Gu Bei had just said that
the Myriad Miles Rivers and Mountains Painting had been laid with the Myriad
Spiritual Lock; therefore, it definitely wasn’t worth getting. On the other
hand, he’d also raised the price. It was an unavoidably a little too hilarious.
Gu Bei was probably trying to tell Yan Yan that he wasn’t trying to provoke
him. At the same time, not making Yan Yang look bad.
Yan Yang turned in Gu
Bei’s direction and considered him briefly. He never expected that Gu Bei would
still have the wealth to compete against him, especially after buying so many
other things. Yan Yang causally said, “This gathering of the three major sects
is meant for us to interact. Harmony is prized. Everyone can bid as they wish,
and the higher bid wins. There is no need to be bothered by status. Junior
Brother Gu, please go ahead!”
