Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Meanwhile, the people in the Zhou Clan’s Auction Square were talking about the final item of the grand finale.
“The items even replaced that grade one Spirit Weapon… Seems like the final item of the Zhou Clan’s auction fair isn’t something ordinary!”
“I’m curious what’s able to replace the grade one Spirit Saber that costs 110,000 high-grade Origin Stones.”
“This is exciting.”
The people looked at Zhou Ji in anticipation. Some of them could not help but say, “Manager Zhou Ji, bring out the final item for the auction fair already.”
“That’s right! Stop keeping us in suspense. We’re waiting,” many of them urged Zhou Ji.
“Please be patient, everyone… We’ll definitely bring out the Zhou Clan’s auction fair’s final items. I’m just thinking which one should we auction off first,” Zhou Ji said.
“Which one to auction off first?” Many of them were stunned after they heard Zhou Ji’s words. Some, on the other hand, reacted instantly and exclaimed, “Manager Zhou Ji, are you saying… there’s more than one item for today’s auction fair’s finale?”
More than one item in the finale!
At this moment, everyone, apart from Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu, was shocked.
“That’s right! There are two items for today’s auction fair’s finale,” Zhou Ji responded with a smile on his face.
As soon as Zhou Ji finished speaking, gasps echoed in the venue.
“Since it’s the final items, the items must be even better than the grade one Spirit Saber that gives an 89% power boost… It seems like the Zhou Clan’s auction fair will be bringing out two great items today.”
“Two items that are even better than the best grade one Spirit Weapon… This is too exciting!”
“Thinking about it excites me.”
At this moment, many of them were trembling in excitement.
“Alright… I’ve made up my mind. Among the two final items, we’ll put the grade one Spirit Weapon up for auction first,” Zhou Ji said. He stood on the stage as all eyes were glued on him.
Grade one Spirit Weapon!
The crowd fell silent as soon as Zhou Ji spoke.
“Another… Another grade one Spirit Weapon?”
“Manager Zhou Ji, is this a mistake?”
“That’s right! The final item has to be better than the grade one Spirit Saber that was auctioned off earlier, right?”
Many people began to voice out their doubts.
In their opinion, the grade one Spirit Saber that was considered the best among grade one Spirit Weapons was already considered the ultimate king among grade one Spirit Weapons. It was sold at the high price of 110,000 high-grade Origin Stones.
Now that they heard Zhou Ji said one of the two final items that replaced the grade one Spirit Saber was also a grade one Spirit Weapon, it was only natural that they thought he made a mistake.
Perhaps it never occurred to them that grade one Spirit Weapons that surpassed the grade one Spirit Saber existed.
“Please be patient, everyone… You can ask questions if you have any doubts after I’m done introducing this grade one Spirit Weapon.” After calming the people down, Zhou Ji lifted his arm and brought out a sword.
It was the grade one Spirit Sword that Duan Ling Tian put up for auction!
Meanwhile, everyone in the Zhou Clan’s Auction Square had their eyes glued on the grade one Spirit Sword in Zhou Ji’s hand. They all looked at it skeptically.
“I can’t tell what’s so special about this grade one Spirit Sword.” Many of them whispered to one another.
“Everyone, this grade one Spirit Sword in my hand replaced that grade one Spirit Saber earlier and became one of the final items…” Zhou Li paused as he spoke to this point. He kept the people in suspense for a moment before he continued to say, “… because it gives a 90% power boost!” Zhou Ji’s turned serious as he spoke.
The crowd fell silent as soon as Zhou Ji was done speaking.
At that moment, clear gulping noises, as well as gasps, could be heard among the crowd.
“Grade one Spirit Weapon that gives a 90% power boost? Manager Zhou Ji, are you sure you’re not joking?” A middle-aged man in the VIP area asked seriously.
“Sir, I’m sure you trust our Zhou Clan’s auction fair’s reputation. That’s why you’re willing to pay the price to get yourself a seat at the VIP area… Do you think the Zhou Clan’s auction fair would deceive you?” Zhou Ji smiled in the face of all the doubts.
“Manager Zhou Ji, that’s not what I mean… I just find it unbelievable,” the middle-aged man said, embarrassed.
“Sir, if you have any doubts, you’re welcome to try it out,” Zhou Ji said.
The middle-aged man’s eyes lit up when he heard what Zhou Ji said. He then looked at a much younger looking man seated next to him. “Junior Brother, go try it.”
The young man nodded. He left the pergola immediately and walked to the auction stage.
As the Senior Brother, the middle-aged man spoke on behalf of the young man who went up to the stage. “My Junior Brother’s cultivation base is at the Seventh Level Void Transformation Stage… He can mobilize 1,000 ancient horned dragons’ strength with his Origin Energy alone! If the sword in Manager Zhou Ji’s hand can really give a 90% power boost, that means he’ll gain an additional 900 ancient horned dragons’ strength.”
At this moment, everyone looked at the young man in anticipation.
Duan Ling Tian remained calm as he watched the scene unfolding before his eyes.
When the young man tested out the grade one Spirit Weapon in Zhou Ji’s hand, 900 ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes appeared next to the 1,000 ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes above the young man’s head.
Meanwhile, an uproar erupted among the crowd as expected.
The grade one Spirit Weapon that gave a 90% power boost shocked everyone. Everyone was going crazy over it!
Duan Ling Tian was happy to see the people going crazy over it since it meant those people would fight for his grade one Spirit Sword.
However, his face turned gloomy instantly.
He realized a lot of people at the VIP area were looking at him again. They seemed like they wanted to know if he was interested in the grade one Spirit Weapon. It seemed like they felt apprehensive.
‘I must get rid of that apprehension immediately!’
What kind of joke was that!
He was the one who put the grade one Spirit Sword up for auction at the Zhou Clan’s auction fair. If nobody was bidding, nobody other than him would have to bear the great loss.
“Why are you looking at me? I’m not interested in the stupid saber and sword,” Duan Ling Tian said impatiently. He did not bother to say that he would not rob the auction items.
Stupid saber? Stupid sword?
Many people’s lips twitched when they heard Duan Ling Tian’s words. They could not tell whether he was telling the truth or lying at this moment.
A grade one Spirit Saber that gave an 89% power boost, the best among grade one Spirit Weapons, was called a ‘stupid saber’ by him.
Now he called a grade one Spirit Sword that gave a 90% power boost that was even better than the grade one Spirit Saber a ‘stupid sword’.
In their opinion, Duan Ling Tian’s words were ridiculous.
However, they were certain of one thing.
That fiend was not interested in the grade one Spirit Sword that was being auctioned off at the moment.
At this moment, the breathing of the people at the VIP area quickened. Many of them were preparing and waiting for the grade one Spirit Sword to be auctioned off.
Compared to the din during the auction of the grade one Spirit Saber, it was deathly quiet now.
The grade one Spirit Sword was truly the best among all grade one Spirit Weapons.
“Why did I buy the stupid saber? I should’ve held on to the Origin Stones to buy this sword.” The old man who bought the grade one Spirit Saber earlier had a forced smile on his face.
This was because he spent 110,000 high-grade Origin Stones to bid for the grade one Spirit Saber earlier, and now he did not have enough Origin Stones to bid for the grade one Spirit Sword that was more precious.
He was filled with regrets now.
“I don’t think I have to tell you how precious this grade one Spirit Sword is. Those who know will know… Now, I would like to open the bid for this grade one Spirit Sword at 5,000 high-grade Origin Stones!” Zhou Ji spoke loudly, standing on the auction stage.
5,000 high-grade Origin Stones!
Compared to the grade one Spirit Saber’s opening bid, the opening bid for the grade one Spirit Sword was 2,000 high-grade Origin Stones more.
Duan Ling Tian was satisfied with the opening bid. He was so happy that a smile appeared on his face.
“10,000 high-grade Origin Stones!” Someone shouted quickly.
“What a miser… 50,000 high-grade Origin Stones!” Somebody called out.
“Aren’t you a miser yourself? 100,000 high-grade Origin Stones!” The third person bid 100,000 high-grade Origin Stones.
“Hmph! The stupid saber earlier was sold at 110,000 high-grade Origin Stones… It’s embarrassing that you guys are bidding lower than the stupid saber after so long. 150,000 high-grade Origin Stones!” The fourth person said loudly.
Apart from the first bidder, the second, third, and fourth bidders were from the VIP area.
‘150,000 high-grade Origin Stones!’ Duan Ling Tian was shocked. He did not expect a grade one Spirit Weapon that he refined casually would fetch such a ridiculous price.
One had to know he only spent 80 to 90 Origin Stones on materials to refine this sword.
‘The weapons crafting techniques and experience that the Rebirth Martial Emperor left for me is such a great fortune… I won’t ever lack Origin Stones with this skill alone,’ Duan Ling Tian exclaimed inwardly.
“300,000 high-grade Origin Stones!” Duan Ling Tian was not paying attention to his surrounding until he heard a loud voice that caught his attention.
It caught his attention, not because of the high price but because of the person who bid at such a high price.
That person was none other than Zhou Ji who stood on the auction stage. It was clear that he represented the Zhou Clan to bid for the grade one Spirit Sword in his hand.
“Zhou Clan’s so bold! It was only at 190,000 high-grade Origin Stones before they bid at 300,000 high-grade Origin Stones,” many people exclaimed.
Naturally, the grade one Spirit Sword ended up in the Zhou Clan’s hand.
The people did not give up because they feared the Zhou Clan. It was because they could not afford to bid higher or they did not think the grade one Spirit Sword was worth more than what the Zhou Clan bid.
