Chapter 1515: Golden Wreck Bow
Lyu Gang and Su Mo had arrived early and there was quite a bit of time before the auction was set to start. After a casual conversation between the two of them, Su Mo closed his eyes and relaxed in the room.
Su Mo wasn’t at the auction to buy anything, he was only there to sell his weapons.
Of course, if any treasured weapon that suited him appeared, he would also participate in the auction.
Time passed by quickly and more and more people gathered at the auction, resulting in a more vibrant atmosphere.
About half an hour later, the auction house was completely filled and there were no more empty seats. At that moment, the doors of the auction house closed, signalling the beginning of the auction.
A short while later, an old man strode onto the stage of the auction house.
This old man, Gong Zhong, wore a long, light green robe. Age had caught up to him as wrinkles lined his face.
Su Mo opened his eyes and saw Gong Zhong standing on block with a flat expression. This man was the elder of the Sixth Chamber of Commerce but he was also acting as the auctioneer of the auction.
“Ladies and gentlemen, welcome the auction of the Sixth Chamber of Commerce. I am very honoured to be the auctioneer of this auction!” Gong Zhong projected his voice as he addressed the people in the hall.
“Elder Zhong is a famous auctioneer of the Ancient Tong City. It is also our honour to attend the auction organised by you!”
“Elder Zhong, hurry and start the auction!”
“Elder Zhong, I heard that a treasured weapon will be auctioned this time. Is that true?”
In the lower stands, a large number of martial artists yelled, causing an uproar in the hall.
“Ladies and gentlemen, please keep it down!”
Gong Zhong lightly ordered as his voice boomed like thunder across the hall. The crowd felt as though their eardrums had popped and the entire hall instantly quietened down. It was so quiet that even the sound of a needle dropping could be heard.
For such a grand auction, the auctioneer had to be someone of a high cultivation rank. Otherwise, the auctioneer would not have any authority and lose control over the crowd.
“Ladies and gentlemen, there are many treasured items in this auction. There are many items that are incredibly rare, I urge you to participate actively in the auction if you want to obtain these treasured items!”
At that point, Gong Zhong paused for a while before he continued, “Since everyone is so impatient, I will not delay any further. The auction will officially begin now!”
The moment Gong Zhong announced this, a tall maidservant carried a long wooden tray and walked from backstage onto the auction block.
A bright, red-colored sash covered the tray, blocking the auras of the items and hindering anyone from peeking at the items. No one could tell what the items to be auctioned were.
Without hesitation, Gong Zhong lifted off the red sash, revealing a long, golden sword.
“The first item up for auction is a Middle Honorable Rank sword. According to the examination by appraisers of our Sixth Chamber of Commerce, this sword is considered a top weapon, even in the Middle Honorable Rank!”
Gong Zhong’s face turned solemn as his tone changed, “the starting bid for this sword is 50 Middle Spiritual Crystals. Every increase in bid must be a minimum of 10 Middle Spiritual Crystals!”
The moment Gong Zhong’s words fell, the auction hall erupted with bids.
“60 Middle Spiritual Crystals!”
“70 Middle Spiritual Crystals!”
Although Middle Honorable weapons were not considered rare, they were regarded as treasures for some weaker martial artists. Hence, there were quite a few participants bidding for the sword.
A small smiled stretched across Su Mo’s lips in room 29. This golden longsword was an item he was auctioning off.
This sword was his previous weapon and before he had obtained the stone sword in the fight meet, this golden sword had been his favoured weapon.
What made Su Mo even happier was that the value of weapons sold in this area was much higher than in Ancientspirit Galaxy.
Although Su Mo wasn’t sure of the exact price of a Medium Honorable Weapon in Ancientspirit Galaxy, he knew that it definitely would be lower that what he was currently obtaining.
Perhaps there was a greater abundance of Spiritual Crystals in the Ming Xu Galaxy which was why the value of the sword was far greater than that in Ancientspirit Galaxy.
In room 29, Yang Tiancheng, Yang Tianwei and the senior female in a green shirt were quietly observing the scene. The three were not participating in the bidding for this round as a Middle Honorable Weapon was not worth anything to them.
The three of them had a lot of Spiritual Crystals, and,even without an invitation, they could rent a room for 300 Middle Spiritual Crystals.
At that moment, Yang Tiancheng looked at the long, golden sword on the auction block and frowned slightly.
“Senior Tiancheng, what’s wrong?” Looking at Yang Tiancheng, the green shirt senior asked, confused.
“Why does that sword seem so familiar?” Yang Tiancheng was bewildered.
As the lady in the green shirt heard this, she turned to look at the golden longsword on the auction block. Then, she laughed lightly, “that is just an ordinary Middle Honorable Weapon, it is very common!”
The green-shirted lady was not too bothered by Yang Tiancheng’s suspicion. The sword being auctioned currently was very common and, like many among the crowd, she had seen it numerous times.
“Possibly!” Yang Tiancheng nodded his head and did not ponder over it further. That sword was a common weapon.
The first item of the auction did not take very long to be sold for a total of 120 Middle Spiritual Crystals.
Su Mo grinned widely in the room. the first Middle Honorable weapon was sold for over a hundred Middle Spiritual Crystals. Then what about the Upper Honorable weapons?
And how about the three Sacred Class Void Wrecking golden Arrows. Would they be sold for an astonishing price?
The first item had been sold and the second item was quickly presented on the auction block. The auction continued from there.
However, the second item for auction wasn’t Su Mo’s weapon.
A maidservant served a Spiritual Tea into the room and Su Mo sipped the tea as he observed the auction.
Various items were brought forth on the auction block like a stream of river. Many people continued to bid for the items.
Su Mo’s items would occasionally appear. However, the Lower Honorable Weapons were sold cheaply and not a single one of them were sold for more than ten Middle Spiritual Crystals.
Yet, although they were not sold for a high price, there was a large number of them sold.
As time flew by swiftly, Su Mo’s items sold one after another.
Around three hours later, around half of Su Mo’s items had been sold.
Until now, Su Mo had still not participated in the auction. Most of the items auctioned were typical items that he was not keen on. Even the Upper Honorable weapons did not catch his eye.
On the other hand, Lyu Gang had successfully purchased an Upper Honorable Fist Skill for 2200 Middle Spiritual Crystals. That was almost all that he had.
“The next item for auction is coming up!”
Gong Zhong announced loudly as another maidservant carried a one foot wide tray onto the auction block.
As always, a bright red sash covered the tray as well as the item within it.
With hands as fast as lightning, Gong Zhong did not waste any words before he removed the sash. A large, gold-colored bow appeared before everyone’s eyes.
“An Upper Honorable Weapon, the Golden Wreck Bow. With its brilliance, the starting bid is 500 Middle Spiritual Crystals and every bid must be a minimum of a hundred Middle Spiritual Crystals. Start the bid!” Gong Zhong announced in a loud voice.
This large, gold-colored bow was an item that Su Mo was auctioning. The words ‘Golden Wreck Bow’ were engraved on it.
“600 Middle Spiritual Crystals!”
“750 Middle Spiritual Crystals!”
“850 Middle Spiritual Crystals!”
In the subsequent moments, bids were called one after another as the auction hall seemed to explode with voices.
From the beginning of the auction until then, there were less than 20 Upper Honorable Weapons that had appeared, and every one of them was a hot item up for grabs.
