Chapter 769: Crazy Bidding
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
After the veil was lifted to reveal the woman in white’s face.
The entire Auction Room was dead silent as everyone stared wide-eyed at her.
She was young, with skin as smooth as jade and fair as snow.
Her looks were incredibly gorgeous, as if her features had been sculpted by the gods.
She had an ethereal and bright aura, as if she was free of wordly corruption.
Everyone’s eyes lit up at her looks. What a stunning maiden!
Su Mo stood up and looked at this woman in white in shock. She really was Hong Qingxuan!
She stood quietly on the auction platform. Her eyes were blank, as if she had no consciousness.
Someone had obviously done something to her to take away her free will.
Su Mo clenched his fists and glared angrily. How could Yin-yang Palace be so shameless to kidnap Qingxuan and auction her off?
Although he felt disgusted watching Yin-yang Palace auction other women off, he knew he could do nothing about it.
However, when he saw Hong Qingxuan on the platform, he could take it no longer and erupted in rage.
He made a move to rush towards Hong Qingxuan.
Suddenly, a powerful arm grabbed him.
“Master Su, even if you like this Stove, don’t do anything stupid!” Master Cui warned, grasping his hand.
Master Cui had been startled by Su Mo’s impulsiveness, but he thought it was because of Hong Qingxuan’s beauty!
Su Mo calmed down slightly, but his expression remained dark, and his rage burned on.
“Master Su, what’s the matter?” Master Cui asked confusedly when he saw how angry Su Mo was.
Su Mo did not respond and instead took a deep breath to calm himself. Then, he asked, “Master Cui, how powerful is Yin-yang Palace?”
Unsure of the question, Master Cui responded, “Almost as powerful as Sky-sea Pavilion!”
Su Mo nodded. Sky-sea Pavilion was second only to the nine great powers, so he was no match for Yin-yang Palace.
His only choice was to buy Hong Qingxuan.
The middle-aged man on the platform saw that everyone was staring hungrily at Hong Qingxuan and smiled.
“Now that you all know what she looks like, let the bidding continue!” he announced loudly.
“1,200,000,000 Upper Spiritual Stones!” Someone shouted.
Everyone gasped. Who was bold enough to increase the price by 100,000,000 Stones?
No one could tell who had spoken, because he was in a VIP room.
“He’s in room 5. I think there’s a Supreme Talent on the List of 10,000 Talents in there!”
“It’s Leng Fan from Netherworld Devil Sect’s Yama Hall. He’s ranked around 9800th on the List!”
“How bold of him to up the price by so much!”
As some gossiped quietly, the bidding went on.
The price climbed swiftly as wealthy martial artists went into a frenzy after seeing Hong Qingxuan’s beauty.
A Supreme Stove with stunning looks was the perfect dream for those who practiced cultivating-through-sex!
Su Mo waited to make his bid but began to frown. He only had 1,900,000,000 Upper Spiritual Stones on him at the moment.
He used to have 2,600,000,000 Upper Spiritual Stones and many Medium Spiritual Stones, but he had devoured them.
Also, buying rare and expensive materials for forging the Natal Spiritual Sword cost him a great amount.
Therefore, he was left witth 1,900,000,000 Stones.
“Master Cui, are you bidding?” Su Mo asked.
Master Cui shook his head and said, “Although this woman is very rare, her cultivation is too low for me!”
Master Cui was also very interested in Hong Qingxuan, but he would have to cultivate her for years to reach high Martial King Realm, which was too much work.
Therefore, he did not participate in the bidding.
“Alright, then would I be able to borrow some of your Spiritual Stones? I will repay you in the future!” Su Mo said quietly.
“Oh? What kind of repayment?” Master Cui’s eyes lit up. He would be overjoyed if Su Mo could give him something like the weapon formula and craftmanship tips like last time!
“It’ll be even better than last time!” Su Mo said.
Master Cui joyfully took out a storage ring, handing it over to Su Mo.
“This is all I have: 1,500,000,000 Upper Spiritual Stones!” he said.
He was smart to not give all his Spiritual Stones to Su Mo.
This was because he was afraid that Su Mo would default on his debt, and there was nothing he could do because Su Mo was a friend of Deputy Hall Chief Hu.
He was also worried that Su Mo might leave Heaven-sea City, and his Spiritual Stones would go to waste.
At the end of the day, Master Cui did not entirely trust Su Mo.
As long as he lent Su Mo Spiritual Stones, he would win no matter if Su Mo bought the Stove or not!
“That’s so little!”
Su Mo frowned slightly. How could a Peak Lv 8 Martial King Realm martial artist and Upper King Craftsman only have 1,500,000,000 Upper Spiritual Stones?
“Ah… I used up all my Spiritual Stones before. This is all I have!” Master Cui sighed and feigned helplessness.
Su Mo nodded. This, combined with his stones, was 3,400,000,000 Upper Spiritual Stones.
That was a giant fortune and definitely enough for bidding!
Su Mo waited gloomily as the bidding continued.
As the price climbed crazily, it soon broke 2,000,000,000.
Most of the martial artists in the great hall had given up on competing at this outrageous price.
Those who were still bidding were all in the VIP rooms.
Even so, there were only around 5 people still bidding.
