Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
When people saw the treasure, they were struck dumb.
Su Mo was also startled.
“Brother Su Mo, have they made a mistake?” Hong Qingxuan said.
Su Mo shook his head and said, “I don’t know!”.
A sword lay quietly on the tray. It was a silver-white, simple, lusterless long-sword.
It looked extremely ordinary and it didn’t have an aura or suffusing power. It was, obviously, a common long-sword.
To make it even less appealing, it was broken. The the hilt was lost. The sword body was only 0.45 meters long.
After a few seconds of silence, the entire Auction Room went into an uproar.
“What the fu*k? How can it be a broken sword?”
“It’s just an ordinary broken sword. There’s no sharpness or power at all!”
“Is it a mistake?”
“Lady Ming Yu, how can you, the Treasure Pavilion, make fun of us with such a piece of trash?”
“Yeah! And you call this an antique? It’s now a wasted piece of iron I guess!”
Many who held high expectations even started to snarl.
Su Mo sized up the broken sword carefully and even used his spiritual consciousness. However, he just found it to be a useless sword.
Su Mo was confused. As the biggest trade firm in the Skysea Lake area, the Treasure Pavilion should not be fooling around.
Even if they were, they should not have used an obviously broken sword!
Ming Yu’s mouth curved slightly. She had expected the people’s reaction, hence she was not surprised.
She motioned with her slender hands to people to be quiet down, and then said, “Everyone, the Treasure Pavilion has existed for thousands of years in the Skysea Lake area. When have we ever fooled you? Please be quiet and listen to me.”
The noisy Auction Room gradually quieted down after Ming Yu’s words.
People could not believe that the Treasure Pavilion would fool them. After all, it did not take a moron to realize this clumsy trick.
Besides, the Treasure Pavilion had always been the most reputable trade firm!
After people calmed down, Ming Yu swept the crowd with her eyes and opened her sexy lips. “This sword is a Spiritual Sword!”
Ming Yu’s words confused many people.
A Spiritual Sword? What was a Spiritual Sword?
Su Mo was perplexed as it was the first time he heard of a Spiritual Sword.
Generally, swords had clear classifications of qualities. High quality swords were called Treasure Swords. The swords above Lv 6 Treasure Swords were called Divine Weapons, such as Imperial Divine Weapon, Emperor Divine Weapon, etc.
But Su Mo had never heard of a Spiritual Sword.
Despite the confused majority, a few knowledgeable people were shocked after her words.
“A Spiritual Sword? How can it be?” Someone cried out in surprise.
“This is impossible!”
Those who knew about the Spiritual Sword could not believe what they had heard.
This made those who were confused even more confused.
“Qingxuan, Sister Huang, do you know what a Spiritual Sword is?” Su Mo asked.
“I have never heard of it!” The two women shook their heads.
Su Mo was even more surprised. They were knowledgeable and had seen things, yet they did not know about the Spiritual Sword.
Nevertheless, judging by the faces of those who knew what it was, the Spiritual Sword must be something incredible.
Ming Yu’s voice rose again on the platform.
“Maybe many of you have not heard of the Spiritual Sword. You may have an idea if I call it the Flying Sword. It can travel between the sky and earth unpredictably, and cut off the enemy’s head thousands of miles away!”
The crowd was tremendously shocked. They had not heard of the Spiritual Sword, but everybody knew of the Flying Sword. It was the ancient god’s weapon!
Upon hearing this, Su Mo’s eyes immediately widened.
“Flying sword! Flying sword!”
Is this the kind of flying swords he saw in the fantasy movies from his previous life. The kind that that someone can use their mind to control the flying sword to kill others from thousands of miles away?
Su Mo was touched. “If it’s true, then I will dominate the world!”
Ming Yu’s mouth corner rose up, and she said, “The Spiritual Sword existed in ancient legends. It’s more precious than you can imagine. Although this Spiritual Sword is broken, it is usable.”
“According to our appraisers, this Spiritual Sword is above Lv 7. But, because of the lost hilt and missing sword spirit, its power is less than a Lower Lv 6 Imperial Divine Weapon’s, yet a little more than an Upper Lv 5 Treasure Sword.”
Therefore, the starting price of it is five million Medium Spiritual Stones, and every markup should be no less than 300,000 Medium Spiritual Stones!”
After the voice fell, the entire place turned dead silent.
Everyone was dumbfounded!
Five million Medium Spiritual Stones, it was too horrible!
Generally, a Lower Lv 6 Imperial Divine Weapon’s starting price was about two million Medium Spiritual Stones, which was less than half of this Spiritual Sword’s.
And this was only the starting price! Who knew what price it could reach after the bidding?
Few Enlightenment Realm martial artists could afford this sword and not even a normal True Darkness Realm expert could.
A few moments later, someone finally made a bid. It was from a True Darkness Realm expert in a Heaven-category VIP room.
Some other True Darkness Realm experts also followed.
In just under 10 seconds, the price reached more than 8,000,000. This, once again, shocked the poor people.
This kind of price was beyond an Enlightenment Realm expert’s imagination, not even a normal True Darkness Realm expert could afford it.
Many True Darkness Realm experts became crazy about this sword. They were even willing to trade all their weapons and techniques for this Spiritual Sword.
Xue Tianhao stared at the sword with keen eyes, and his breath became heavy too.
“The Treasure Pavilion even offers this kind of arcane treasure!”
Xue Tianhao’s face was filled with excitement. He looked at Tao Wei and said hurriedly, “Brother Tao, send a message to my father quickly and tell him to send some stones here. I need 10 million Medium Spiritual Stones. No, 20 million Medium Spiritual Stones!”
Tao Wei nodded immediately and said, “Okay, you do the bidding and I’ll do the messaging!”
Then, Tao Wei took out the Messaging Charm and started to send a message.
In fact, Tao Wei was also extremely tempted by this sword. However, since Xue Tianhao was into the sword, he had to give it up because he was just a disciple of the Golden Shark King, while Xue Tianhao was the son of the Golden Shark King.
