AST 2344 - Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda of Violence and Endurance, Breaching 100 Million
“Fifth Young Master gave up. That is something unexpected and rare, but the man in that room is probably getting into some trouble.”
“Indeed. It has been ages since someone went against the Fifth Young Master like this. Interesting.”
Qing Shui was indifferent to the chattering. He was not afraid of anyone in the Demon King Domain, let alone Bailan City. After a while, a waitress sent the little Pagoda to Qing Shui. Qing Shui placed the money at the auction house earlier on, so they would deduct the price from it.
Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda of Violence and Endurance!
After owning it, one would double their attacking power and endurance.
The description was brief, but Qing Shui was extremely surprised and bought it straight away.
Powerful energy formed within Qing Shui’s body. Attacking power had always been Qing Shui's weakness, but now it had been greatly improved. Though it was still insufficient, it would be terrifying in a Berserk Dragon Fist. Qing Shui felt like this fist technique was getting more important now.
It was the ability of the Nine Animals Mimicry Technique which only Qing Shui could make use of to such a daunting level. The current Berserk Dragon Fist could reach 4000 trillion Dao already.
Qing Shui had only less than 5000 trillion Dao now, including defense, Battle God Halo and formations. This attack was considered very powerful, but it was only limited to the Berserk Dragon Fist. The others were still rather weak, but Qing Shui believed that they would catch up one day.
This kind of treasure pagoda only increased the final attacking power and had no effect on Qing Shui's defense. Nevertheless, endurance was doubled and it was wonderful. It was about the lasting power which was related to the body.
The item was really worth the price of 5 million. He was satisfied to obtain it with this amount of money. He was determined to get this item regardless of the end price.
At this moment, the third item was revealed on the auction stage.
“This is a treasure sword. It is said to have been owned by a saint in ancient times. Although it suffered minor damage, it is still considered magical. You can have a look first.” The aged auctioneer explained.
Then, the alluring woman in red carried this sword and began to let the crowd observe it.
For sure, they started with the people in the rooms. This woman was too seductive and enticing, but she was also a woman with thorns.
A fat guy was flung out from a room and fell onto the first floor’s hall. The alluring woman said only one phrase, “Get lost!”
“Brainless guy. He probably wanted to take advantage of her. I wonder how many guys have done the exact same thing.” A young man said with a smile.
“A hundred and thirty five.” A man sounded serious.
“Haha, you are better in numbers. Of course you would remember this, Young Master Chu.”
Soon after, the woman came near Qing Shui while holding the sword. Qing Shui wondered about her identity and why she worked here, but it was only suitable for someone who had the strength of hers.
An aromatic breeze was felt. It was neither a heavy nor a mild scent, but it was tempting. This was a strong fragrance, making people lose control easily.
“Sir, please have a look.” The woman brought the sword closer to Qing Shui.
Her voice was enticing and seductive; it was soft and teased one’s soul.
“Sorry for troubling you!”
“It's my job to do so.”
Qing Shui smiled and looked at this sword which was worn out and plain. It was heavy and thick, with a length of four meters and a width of two inches. It was neither big nor small.
This weapon was great from what Qing Shui found out with the Heavenly Vision Technique. It was weaker than the God Striking Whip. Both of them were damaged but there was a big difference. However, it was qualified as a Divine Weapon. Besides, he did not have to own this weapon.
Qing Shui nodded, implying that he was done. He would bid for it if possible, but seeing how this kind of item was the most popular, it would probably be unrealistic.
After some time, the old auctioneer said, “Starting from 40 million, each increment must not be less than 8 million. The bid begins now!”
Qing Shui was perplexed that the lowest bid was 40 million. This sword would probably go above 100 million.
“80 million!” Immediately, a man said.
“This is Minister Jin!” Someone shouted.
Qing Shui did not know about Minister Jin, but the man looked charismatic in his middle age. Wearing a golden robe, his eyes were full of spirit, giving out a sense of fierceness. This was a strong man, and a man of powerful status.
Minister Jin was implying his determination to get the item so that others would give up for him. Also, he showed his sincerity by doubling the price.
“100 million!” A man who was wearing a white robe and also looked slightly aged said.
“Haha, I knew Minister Bai would stand out. These two had been fighting for so many years. He would increase the price even if he couldn't win against Minister Jin,” Someone said as he laughed instantly. Apparently everyone was familiar with these two men.
“It has breached a hundred million. What a good item. It's a shame that we are unable to compete,” A man sighed and said.
Qing Shui gaped in surprise. This item could really make a great sum of money.
At that time, the old auctioneer on the stage said something, “I'm sorry to inform this but just now, the seller said that he won't trade this item for money anymore. He wants some life-extending pills or recipes. It shouldn't be lower than fifty years.”
At his words, many people were stunned. Fifty years. That was not a small number. Besides, life-extending pills were the most precious. At that moment, Qing Shui called upon the waitress to get a bottle of lifespan pills. Simultaneously, many people passed over their recipe or pills to the waitress.
Qing Shui obtained the sword eventually. It did not even have a name. Qing Shui threw it into the Realm of Violet Jade Immortal with no hesitation. If the others could not make use of it, he would use the Hundred Treasure Chest then.
Minister Jin and Minister Bai stared at Qing Shui's with unknown thoughts.
“Where does that young man come from? Such a generous man, he is neither afraid to offend the Fifth Young Master nor Minister Jin and Minister Bai.”
“This man is not simple. To be able to offer life-extending pills, that is not a small amount.”
The subsequent ten items did not interest Qing Shui, but the others had a great competition. He was almost dozing off.
This time, the item being carried on the stage was rather big. Qing Shui took a glance and laughed to himself. It was surprisingly the Divine Weapon Stone.
“Divine Weapon Stone, a magical item which is able to increase the quality of weapons. Yet, it requires a really great blacksmith. Thus, one has to be very cautious. Otherwise, he will lose his weapon by mistake.”
There was such a slight chance that once used, the weapon would be basically spoiled.
However, people would make a bet as long as there was a chance because when successful, the advantage was obvious.
Qing Shui would not use the Divine Weapon Stone to upgrade the level of weapons. The Divine Weapon Flying Sword had yet to achieve complete levels. If he could, he would upgrade it first.
“Starting from 5 million, each increment must not be less than 600 thousand.”
“8 million!” The one who started was the Fifth Young Master.
Qing Shui smirked silently as soon as he saw the Fifth Young Master; it seemed like he had to undergo a fierce fight with this man today.
Qing Shui did not reply immediately. He reckoned someone would come out to compete. The more the merrier.
“10 million!” Minister Jin spoke.
That was also happening at once. It was fine to leave this item. Great things would not depreciate. Its usage was wide and the effect was great. Unfortunately, the risk of failure was too high.
