Chapter 496: The Fierce Competition
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Su Mo’s face turned serious. He was considering whether he should buy the Spiritual Sword.
Of course Su Mo was tempted by this particular sword. Any martial artist below the Martial King Realm would want it.
However, its final price would certainly be high.
He had to sell several of his King martial arts techniques to buy this sword.
Moreover, his financial capacity would be exposed to the public if he made the purchase. People would surely covet an arcane treasure like the Spiritual Sword.
Su Mo was unwilling to give up the Spiritual Sword, however. He might miss such an efficient killer weapon forever if he could not get it today!
The sword could play as his hidden card until he reached the Martial King Realm; besides, he might be able to find out some secrets about the flying swords.
He thought of Firmament Palace. As the dominator of the Firmament and continent in ancient times, they should have some Spiritual Swords!
However, the master of the Earth Palace wouldn’t allow him to return to Firmament Palace until he reached the Martial King Realm. This meant that he could not go back there and fetch a Spiritual Sword now.
Quickly, Su Mo made up his mind!
“Let’s do this!”
He would pay anything for the Spiritual Sword.
Just as he made up his mind, the bidding in the auction room reached nine million Medium Spiritual Stones.
There were only a dozen people bidding for the sword.
“Ten million!” Su Mo offered his bid.
The place went silent. The crowd was shocked by the announcement.
Ten million! The bid was astronomical.
Hong Qingxuan and Huang Yao looked at Su Mo in shock. They were both interested in the sword. They could never afford to pay such a price.
“12 million!” Su Mo continued.
The place quieted down again. Many experts in the True Darkness realm could not keep up with the bidding and were forced to give up.
“12.3 million!” An elderly voice rose from Heaven-category room 2.
12.6 million!” The sweet voice of a young woman rang from Heaven-category room 1.
All other bids had ceased but those of the two people!
Su Mo hesitated, “12.9 million!” He continued.
Su Mo placed the modest bid. He knew he did not need to raise it madly, as his competition had dwindled.
In Heaven-category room 2, a narrow-faced old man sat upright in his chair. “13.2 million!” He said, eyebrows furrowed.
“13.5 million!” The young woman in Heaven-category room 1 followed.
Judging from the current situation, the final buyer of the sword would be among the three.
“Gosh! The price is going crazy now. Who are they? How did they become so rich?”
“It seems the one in Heaven-category room 2 is the Master of All Beasts. The one in Heaven-category room 1 is said to be a talent on the List of Top 1,000 Talents!”
“The Master of All Beasts? Is he the elder who has numerous Lv 5 spiritual beasts?”
“Correct! I’m just wondering who’s in that Human-category room?”
“I know this. That man there is Su Mo, the disciple of the Towering Sky Peak master from the Celestialspirit Sect! He just had a fight with Xue Tianhao outside!”
The place became noisy again. People were shocked by the wealth demonstrated by these three people.
“The Master of All Beasts? A talent on the List of Top 1,000 Talents?”
Hearing the talks outside, Su Mo frowned. He might have to pay more than he expected for the Spiritual Sword now.
“14 million!” Su Mo gnashed his teeth and continued.
In Heaven-category room 2, the old man in grey wore a solemn look, as he slapped the chair and turned it to dust with one hand.
He snarled, “God damn it! If I had been fully prepared to come today, you two kids would not stand a chance to fu*k with me!”
He then gnashed his teeth and thundered, “16 million! I don’t believe you can follow that!”
The crowd was shocked once more at the ridiculously high bid.
“Haha! Elder, I’m afraid that I will have to disappoint you. 16.3 million!” A crisp laugh came from Heaven-category room 1. The young woman was not at all afraid of the Master of All Beasts.
“16.6 million!” Su Mo continued.
This time, the elder became silent. He had reached his limit.
“Fu*k!” Murderous intent flashed about his eyes.
A voice rose suddenly. It was Xue Tianhao.
The crowd was horrified at the 3,000,000 markup!
They were on Golden Shark Island, and Xue Tianhao had the support of the Golden Shark sect. Who could compete with him?
“Hum! Who dares compete with me? I have countless stones. You poor kids!”
An unruly voice, full of confidence, rose from the room.
The young woman became silent. The price had obviously gone beyond her limit.
Su Mo’s eyebrows knitted together. He knew the bidding had reached his limit as well. He was not willing to sell all his martial arts techniques!
A complete set of the Nirvana Swordplay Skill could sell for five or six million stones; the Upper Lv 6 Mountains-Weight Skill was worth more stones than the former, they were too precious to be sold.
The Sky-Burning Fire Skill and the Black Dragon Fist his master had just given him could not be sold because he had not practiced them yet.
The Archean Dragonesque Elegant Skill was definitely off the selling list. TheElephant Strength Skill and Phantom Avatar , on the other hand, could be sold.
After considering that, Su Mo found out that there were not many scrolls to sell and that he could not make 20 million Medium Spiritual Stones at all!
However, if he bought the Spiritual Sword for 20 million stones, he could begrudgingly sell Black Dragon Fist.
“21 million!” Su Mo offered his bid. If Xue Tianhao raised the price again, he would have to give up.
After all, 20 million Medium Spiritual Stones were enough for him to level up to Lv 9 Enlightenment Realm!
Although this sword was extremely precious, it was not worth the price.
Xue Tianhao’s eyes glittered when he heard Su Mo’s voice.
The price he had offered was merely a bluff. Through the help of his father, someone had sent him 20 million Medium Spiritual Stones. He already had 5 million of his own, and now he had 25 million Medium Spiritual Stones.
He had been afraid that the others would keep the pace with his bids. Now that only Su No remained, another thought came to his mind.
He would definitely kill Su Mo. If he looted Su Mo’s Spiritual Sword, he could save a huge amount of Spiritual Stones.
He gave it a second thought. This may not be smart. If he killed Su Mo, his belongings would all come into his possession. It meant that there would be no difference between him spending stones or Su Mo spending them.
Besides, with the Spiritual Sword, Su Mo might be difficult to kill. The worst case scenario would be that others shared his intent and came to loot the Spiritual Sword as well.
Xue Tianhao made his decision. It was better to buy the Spiritual Sword himself.
“22 million!” Xue Tianhao continued bidding.
