Chapter 1362: Lost Interest
For Su Mo to be ranked first on the True Sage Board, there was basically no objection from the crowd. However for those after him on the board, there were more or less some disagreements.
However, even if there were objections, no one dared to bring it up again.
After all, even if there were any, no one was able to provide any substantial evidence.
For example, You Tian Han was ranked 167th on the True Sage Board. However, he felt that he could be ranked in the top 100 or even the top 50. But this was only his sentiments, there was no substantial evidence for it.
Unless he was able to defeat those ahead of him and prove himself.
Those on the board were unable to refute it, let alone others who were not on the board.
“Xuan Jing Seniors, let’s start the auction!”
“Yes, we have already wasted a lot of time!”
Everyone started speaking up, however many of them were still holding their breaths.
There were some who were not on the board that thought about it. When the True Sage Territory opened, it amazed the world and defeated those who were in the lead on the True Sage Board.
A small number of people who were on the list were also prepared to defeat those who were ahead of them and prove that their ranking should be much higher.
“He he! Well, now the auction is officially starting!”
Reverend Xuan Jing laughed. Without wasting time, he immediately lightly clapped his hands.
After which, at the back of the palace, a beautiful maidservant carrying a purple tray about three feet long walked onto the auctioning stage.
The tray was covered with bright red silk. When the silk was lifted, it revealed a short silver knife.
“Jade Snake Knife, an Honourable Lower Grade Weapon. It is of good quality, powerful and going at a price of 500 Lower Spiritual Crystals. Each increase in price must not be less than 50 Lower Spiritual Crystals. Now, the auctioning begins!”
Reverend Xuan Jing said in a loud, clear voice. Once he stopped speaking, auctions started streaming in.
“Five hundred and fifty Lower Spiritual Crystals!”
“Six hundred Lower Spiritual Crystals!”
“Six hundred and fifty!”
With the constant bids, the entire auction hall gradually became more heated up as the voices kept changing.
However at this time, Su Mo had already no intention to bid. He had to act as soon as possible.
“Brother Xie, can we leave the auction halfway?” Su Mo whispered to Xie Bin as he saw the door of the auction house closed tightly.
“Leave halfway?” Upon hearing this Xie Bin was stumped. He did not understand why Su Mo wanted to leave but nodded “Of course you can!”
“That’s great!” Su Mo nodded. It was good that he was able to leave early. However, now there was no one who was leaving the auction house and as such, it was temporarily not a good idea to leave lest he draw attention to himself.
In the distance, You Tian Han had been secretly paying attention to Su Mo. Hearing that Su Mo wanted to leave, his lips curled into an icy cold smile.
The auction was ongoing, and one after another treasures were constantly being auctioned.
Although this auction was a Martial Emperor Realm auction, there were many Honourable Grade Treasures. This was because most of those who participated in the auction were not ordinary Martial Emperor Realm warriors.
The auction was held regardless of if it were day or night. Even if it was night time, the auction would still continue. Hundreds of treasures had already been auctioned.
To the Martial Emperor Realm warriors, the night seemed to have no effect on them.
After a long period of consideration, Su Mo had already made a decision and he gave up the plan on fleeing to Heavenly Underworld Star. Instead, he decided to hide in the Shenwu Academy.
Although the Sorcerer Tribe was powerful, the descendants of Heavenly Underworld Star were not that powerful and the Shenwu Academy should be able to protect him.
Of course, this was not a long-term solution. Hiding in the Shenwu Academy could only be a plan for the time being.
“The next auction item is a Fire Based Martial Skill. It is a Middle Honourable Skill, going at a price of ten thousand Lower Spiritual Crystals. Each price increase must not be less than one thousand Lower Spiritual Crystals!”
Reverend Xuan Jing’s voice resounded once again as a Jade Slip was presented before the crowd’s eyes.
After all, a Middle Honourable Skill was more than ten times more valuable than a Lower Honourable Treasure.
Su Mo’s eyes lit up. The Fire Based Skill was exactly what he needed. Although it was only a Middle Honourable Skill, it was already quite extraordinary.
Moreover, ever since the auction started, basically no Upper Honourable Treasures had appeared, not even one. He reckoned that they would only be present at the Martial Honourable Realm Auction.
“12,000 Lower Spiritual Crystals!”
The appearance of the Middle Honourable Skill instantly caused many people to start bidding and the bids streamed in.
Not long after, the price of the Middle Honourable Skill had reached 40,000 Lower Spiritual Crystals.
In the end, Su Mo placed a bid of 45,000 Lower Spiritual Crystals and successfully bid for it.
Soon, a maidservant sent the Jade Slip to Su Mo as he paid the Spiritual Crystals upfront.
Due to the large scale of this auction, after the successful auction of each auction item, the bidder had to immediately pay the Spiritual Crystals up front to receive the item.
After receiving the Jade Slip, Su Mo looked at it slightly and immediately put it away. It was indeed a Middle Honourable Skill and was beyond mysterious.
This skill was called “Three Thousand Flame Skill”, and was more than a few times stronger than the Upper Imperial Fire Based Skills which he cultivated.
The auction continued and after an hour, another Gold Middle Honourable Skill appeared.
Without a double, this skill was once again taken by Su Mo who had spent 48,000 Lower Spiritual Crystals.
No one had fought with Su Mo, as those who were wealthy did not lack Middle Honourable Skills and those who needed Middle Honourable Skills were limited in their wealth.
An ordinary Martial Emperor Realm Warrior would simply not be able to fork out 40,000 Lower Spiritual Crystals.
The auction did not stop for a moment as one after another treasures were auctioned. Su Mo just watched quietly. Other than the skills he needed, he did not participate in any other auctions.
On the other hand, Xie Bin was involved in several auctions, however he was only able to bid for a Lower Honourable Armour.
This auction indeed had a lot of treasures. In two days, all the Five Element Middle Honourable Skills appeared.
Without a doubt, they were all bought by Su Mo and the most expensive one which was an Earth Based Skill was bought for a price as high as 50,000 Lower Spiritual Crystals.
“Brother Su, you are indeed amazingly wealthy!” Xie Bin looked at Su Mo, who was putting away another Jade Slip. The former stared in shock at Su Mo as Su Mo had already bid for five Middle Honourable Skills and he had gone to spending a terrifying 20,000 Lower Spiritual Crystals.
He never expected Su Mo to be that wealthy.
However, it all made sense when he thought of Su Mo killing the Taishi Family and seemed to have taken a lot of Storage Rings.
“I accumulated them for a long time!”
Su Mo smiled and did not explain further. As he had already consecutively bid for five Middle Honourable Skills, he had already attracted the attention of quite a few people.
After all, around 200,000 Lower Spiritual Crystals was no small number.
You Tian Han looked at Su Mo and his eyes filled with doubt. He did not understand why Su Mo had bought so many Skills.
Logically speaking, one Skill was sufficient for one to cultivate for decades, even centuries. There was no point in purchasing too many skills.
In the next auction, Su Mo completely lost interest as he had already bought and collected all the skills he needed.
At this time, he was already intending on leaving and had to leave as soon as possible.
