Chapter 846: Each Revealing One's Capital
The enormous auction ground descended into an unusual silence after Mo Tian Xing's words sounded. A countless number of eyes swept over those in the VIP seats. Everyone knew that given the great value of this Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva, it was naturally impossible for an ordinary person to obtain. Those who had the qualification and ability to obtain it were the experts and ancient factions present in the VIP seats.
The VIP seats were strangely quiet. Even those large factions, that were ready to create trouble earlier, did not open their mouths in a frantic manner. Instead, their bodies leaned gently against the backrest of their chairs as their fingers gently knocked on their armrests. They did not open their mouths to say anything.
"Ha ha, it is this old me who has not made myself clear."
Mo Tian Xing was also startled by this unusual silence. Immediately, he appeared to have recovered as he softly laughed and said, "Due to this Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva being far too valuable, the auctioning method will also be somewhat different. Next, I will like to invite those friends who are interested to enter the auction stage alone and take out the item they wish to use in exchange for the old me to take a look. After which, the old me will complete this transaction with the person who has taken out an item of the greatest value."
Quite a number of people were stunned when they heard Mo Tian Xing's words. Plenty of people immediately became displeased. Despite being displeased, they were clear that given the value of this Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva, the items that these large factions would take out to exchange for it would also be extremely valuable. As the saying went, money cannot be revealed to anyone. This point was something that even commoners knew, much less these large factions and experts who shook the 'Black-Corner Region'.
Xiao Yan was similarly startled by this rule. However, he recovered quickly and nodded. In this way, he would be able to save some trouble. After all, if the thing that one took out was so valuable that the people beside them started to covet it, it might end up attracting quite a lot of unnecessary trouble.
Those people who had similar thoughts as Xiao Yan, revealed a more relaxed expression on their faces. They nodded after Mo Tian Xing's words sounded.
Mo Tian Xing glanced at the atmosphere that had relaxed a little. Only then did he vaguely smile. His hand suddenly moved and the surrounding light circle around the auction stage suddenly became denser. With the increase in density of the color, the situation within the stage grew increasingly blurrier. In the end, one could not make out anything on the stage.
Mo Tian Xing's loud and clear laughter was transmitted as the auction stage was being covered by a dense light pillar, "Everyone, I think you should be able to rest assured now, right? In that case, please start bidding. However, everyone should follow the rules. It is sufficient to enter alone. Do not enter in groups. Of course, I think that everyone need not worry that the old me will mess about in front of everyone."
Quite a number of people faintly smiled when they heard these words of Mo Tian Xing. If the Black Emperor Sect dared to mess around in this kind of place, it was likely that they did not wish to continue muddling along in the 'Black-Corner Region'? Some of the factions seated had a background that was not weaker than the Black Emperor Sect. If the latter were to annoy them, the Black Emperor Sect's could only end up being destroyed should all of them form an alliance.
A middle-aged man in a VIP seat took the lead to stand not long after Mo Tian Xing's words sounded. His face was filled with a fiery heat as his body moved and rushed forward. Finally, he entered into the light pillar.
Xiao Yan, who was under the black robe, could not resist playing with the Storage Ring on his finger as he watched the middle-aged man disappear into the light pillar. He had spent all his effort to prepare for this Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva. However, he did not know whether his fortune would be able to obtain it from the hands of so many experts who had clearly come prepared.
"Why don't I go in later?" The Little Fairy Doctor by his side suddenly whispered to Xiao Yan. She was knitting her brows while staring at the dense light pillar.
"It's fine, the Black Emperor Sect doesn't have the guts to mess around here… moreover, given my strength, even if Mo Tian Xing were to attack in person, he would have difficulty getting me to stay without revealing some ability." Xiao Yan faintly smiled. He naturally knew what the Little Fairy Doctor was worried about. However, as long as that Mo Tian Xing was somewhat rational, he would not commit a foolish act in front of so many people's eyes.
The Little Fairy Doctor could only nod her head when she saw Xiao Yan's persistence. She softly said, "In that case, we'll do as you say. However, you should remember that I will force my way in if you did not come out within five minutes."
Xiao Yan was startled before he immediately smiled and nodded.
Around three minutes later, the large middle-aged man walked out of the pillar in front of the countless numbers of gazes in the auction. He helplessly shook his head and returned to his seat with a bitter face. From the looks of it, the item he had taken out was not approved by Mo Tian Xing.
The people in the VIP seats who felt uncertainty in their hearts finally let it go after seeing the first person successfully walk out. Next, a yellow-clothed, old man with a shadowy expression swiftly stood up and rushed into the light pillar.
The remainder of the auction was unusually smooth after its bumpy start. People repeatedly entered the light pillar one after another. However, most people ended up coming out with a somewhat gloomy expression. It seemed that their things also failed to satisfy Mo Tian Xing. Of course, this was not the case for everyone. There was a small number of people who walked out with smiles on their faces. It seemed that they possessed a lot of confidence in the things that they had taken out.
Xiao Yan was not in a hurry to enter the light pillar. Instead, he quietly sat in his chair, and watched the progress of the event.
The eagle-nosed gray-haired old man, who had purchased the 'Dark Shadow Skill' earlier, slowly stood up while Xiao Yan quietly waited.
Xiao Yan's heart shivered a little when he saw the old man act. The latter was one of the few people in the auction ground whom he could not see through. Therefore, his heart had automatically classified him among his greatest competitors.
This eagle-nosed gray-haired old man seemed to possess some reputation among the older generation of the 'Black-Corner Region'. Hence, the expressions of the people from the Demon Flame Valley, First Elder Su Qian and the others, who had yet to step forward, changed slightly the moment the former stood up. Their gazes were quickly shot over.
The eagle-nosed old man was unconcerned with these surrounding gazes. His body shook and he disappeared from the spot in a ghost-like manner. This speed caused Xiao Yan's eyes to shrink. At this moment, he was certain that this old man, whose aura was different from an ordinary Dou Zong, was definitely an elite Dou Zong!
"The 'Black-Corner Region' is indeed a place where dragons and tigers hide. I never heard of this person in the past. It is unexpected that his strength is this great…" Xiao Yan's face became solemn under the black robe while he muttered in his heart.
The space where the eagle-nosed old man had disappeared from shook slightly just as this thought flashed across Xiao Yan's heart. One could see that his body flashed and appeared once again. His face contained a faint smile. From the looks of it, it seemed that he had great confidence in his bidding price.
After having flashed and returned, the eagle-nosed old man continued to ignore the surrounding gazes as he returned to his seat. After which, he shut his eyes to recuperate.
Quite a number of people frowned when they saw his laid back movements…
First Elder Fang Yan from the Demon Flame Valley finally stood up after this mysterious eagle-nosed old man's turn. His face carried a smile as he slowly walked out a moment after entering the light pillar. From the looks of it, he seemed to have also brought along a true treasure.
Xiao Yan studied Fang Yan with an indifferent expression as the latter returned to his seat. He was just about to stand up when he saw Xiao Li, a short distance away, got up before him. After which, the latter's body moved and he rushed into the light pillar.
Xiao Yan was immediately stunned upon seeing this scene. The aim of 'Xiao Gate' this time around was also the Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva? However, given the foundation of 'Xiao Gate,' how was it able to take out something that could interest Mo Tian Xing? Xiao Yan's eyes suddenly glanced at First Elder Su Qian as this doubt flashed across his heart. He immediately nodded his head, having come to a sudden understanding.
Xiao Li walked out after having entered the light pillar for three to four minutes. His appearance did not reveal a bitter expression nor too many smiles. It seemed that the Black Emperor Sect did not evaluate the thing that they had taken out very highly.
Xiao Yan slowly stood up as this thought flashed through his heart.
Being a target who was always paid attention to, Xiao Yan's actions naturally pulled over many gazes that contained various expressions.
These gazes were naturally not something that Xiao Yan was bothered with. His body moved and he gently floated through the air before landing in the light pillar.
The intense light when Xiao Yan's body entered the light pillar caused his eyes to narrow before he opened them with caution a moment later. He coincidentally saw Mo Tian Xing smiling on the auction stage. There was a red-faced old man behind the latter. He was Qi Shan, whom Xiao Yan had some conflict with.
"Ha ha, mister Yan Xiao. The old me has finally waited for you to step forward." Mo Tian Xing smiled as he spoke. He studied Xiao Yan. The gaze he used to look at the latter was no different than one used to look at a big fat goat.
Xiao Yan quietly and coldly laughed at Mo Tian Xing's eyes. His gaze immediately turned to the crystal box by the side without drawing attention. Surprise flickered in his eyes when he saw the thick liquid within it. It seemed to possess a lifeforce of its own. He muttered, "Is this the Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva?"
"Ha ha, this is the Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva. My Black Emperor Sect does not dare to create a fake of this thing." Mo Tian Xing smiled and nodded. He immediately laughed, "May I know what does mister Yan Xiao intend to use to exchange for this Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva?"
Xiao Yan withdrew his gaze. He mused for a moment under Mo Tian Xing's somewhat fiery hot gaze. With a flick of his finger, a white jade bottle appeared in his hand. There was a large dragon-eye-sized medicinal pill partially visible in the jade bottle.
"This is a top grade tier 6 medicinal pill, Zong Breaking Pill. I think that sect leader Mo has heard of it. I shall not say anything more about its effect."
Xiao Yan flicked his finger and the jade bottle slowly flew toward Mo Tian Xing while Xiao Yan spoke.
"Zong Breaking Pill?"
Mo Tian Xing and Qi Shan behind him trembled upon hearing this name. A joy that was difficult to hide immediately surfaced in their eyes.
Chapter 847: The Final Victor
The Zong Breaking Pill. Mo Tian Xing was not foreign to this medicinal pill that could be considered renowned. Qi Shan behind him was also not foreign to it. The effects of this medicinal pill similarly possessed an enormous attraction to them.
Currently, the Black Emperor Sect only had one elite Dou Zong, Mo Tian Xing. This was also the main reason why the Black Emperor Sect was able to stand within the 'Black-Corner Region' without collapsing. Hence, one could tell just what kind of deterrent effect an elite Dou Zong possessed within this region.
The Black Emperor Sect had been thinking of grooming a second elite Dou Zong during these years to act as Mo Tian Xing's successor. The one who had the greatest chance to reach this class was naturally Mo Ya, who had displayed an outstanding training talent since he was young. The Black Emperor Sect had used an uncountable amount of spiritual medicines on the latter during these many years. Only through their liberal usage of spirituale medicines did they manage to allow Mo Ya to become an expert Dou Huang before he was thirty. However, simply relying on the accumulation of medicinal pills was not something that could successfully groom an elite Dou Zong. This point was something that Mo Tian Xing, who was an elite Dou Zong, was clearly aware of.
There was a big gap between a Dou Huang and a Dou Zong. Attempting to successfully breakthrough was extremely difficult… Honestly speaking, even with Mo Ya's training talent, Mo Tian Xing did not hold much hope in the former charging into the Dou Zong class. If it was this easy to advance into the Dou Zong class, the enormous 'Black-Corner Region' would not have these few individuals who were as rare as phoenix feathers and a unicorn horn.
Although Mo Tian Xing did not hold much hope, he had also never given up. After all, the Black Emperor Sect had already spent quite a lot on Mo Ya. It was impossible for them to stop now. All they could do was go all out. As long as Mo Ya was able to become an elite Dou Zong, the strength of the Black Emperor Sect would soar. They might not be able to unify the 'Black-Corner Region,' but by relying on the strength of two elite Dou Zongs and the foundation of the Black Emperor Sect, they would at least be able to become an extremely strong existence that could roll over the other factions within the 'Black-Corner Region'. That position was far from what they could currently compare with…
Of course, the precondition of all of this was Mo Ya's successful break through to the Dou Zong class. However, it was clearly a very difficult task for Mo Ya to rely on his own strength to breakthrough to the Dou Zong class. Hence, Mo Tian Xing needed to find some medicinal pills that could increase the chances of this occurring. At this moment… the 'Zong Breaking Pill' that Xiao Yan had taken out had coincidentally pressed on the softest spot within their hearts.
The excitement in Mo Tian Xing's eyes continued for a moment before gradually disappearing. He carefully grabbed the jade bottle that Xiao Yan had thrown over. After which, he handed it to Qi Shan behind him. The latter understood the former's intention as he swiftly received it. After which, he glanced at the dragon-eye-sized medicinal pill within the bottle. He poured it onto his hand and carefully studied it only to sigh and nod his head a moment later. He raised his head. His gaze was somewhat complicated as he looked at Xiao Yan while he said in a deep voice, "Sect leader, this is indeed the 'Zong Breaking Pill'. Moreover, its quality is quite high and the medicinal effect is extremely well-preserved."
The smile on Mo Tian Xing's face widened after hearing Qi Shan's verification. With a smile, he nodded and said to Xiao Yan, "The medicinal pill that mister Yan Xiao was refining back then should be this item, right?"
Xiao Yan slightly nodded. His gaze faintly swept over the two people before laughing, "May I know what sect leader Mo thinks about this Zong Breaking Pill?"
"Not bad, this Zong Breaking Pill is indeed a medicinal pill that my Black Emperor Sect needs." Mo Tian Xing smiled and nodded. He immediately recalled something and frowned. After which, he raised his head, smiled and spoke to Xiao Yan, "Since mister Yan Xiao has already taken out the item that he wishes to use for the exchange, please return to your seat and wait. After the few Elders within the sect and I have a discussion, the Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva in this auction shall have a new owner."
Xiao Yan nodded when he heard his words. He smoothly grabbed the jade bottle and his hands immediately withdrew into his sleeves. A layer of faint Dou Qi quietly surged out before wrapping around the jade bottle. One could not blame Xiao Yan for being this cautious. After all, his heart understood just what kind of place he belonged to as well as who the people in front of him were. If one were not cautious when dealing with them, it was likely that one would not even know how one died.
Xiao Yan stored the jade bottle before cupping his hands toward Mo Tian Xing. After which, he turned his body and walked out of the light circle.
The smile on Mo Tian Xing's face changed after sending Xiao Yan out of the light pillar. He knit his brows tightly and appeared to have descended into some sort of troubled state.
"Elder Qi, there are currently three things that interest us. One is the tier 7 medicinal pill, 'Life Returning Pill' that Old Ying Shan has taken out. The second is the spiritual merger method that the Demon Flame Valley has taken out. The third is this Yan Xiao's 'Zong Breaking Pill'. Which do you think is most suitable for us?" Mo Tian Xing thought deeply for a moment before slowly placing his hands behind him. He asked Qi Shan a question with a frown.
Qi Shan was startled when he heard this. He immediately knit his brows slightly and voiced his thoughts, "The 'Life Returning Pill is a tier 7 medicinal pill. It does indeed crush the other two items in terms of its grade. This medicinal pill is able to save one person's life. With it, one can live as long as one does not have his head chopped off or his heart crushed by another person. If sect leader possessed it, it would be equivalent to you having two lives. This is of critical importance. You are the most important person in the Black Emperor Sect. As long as you are around, the position of the Black Emperor Sect will be preserved for a long time.
"As for the spiritual merger method that the Demon Flame Valley offered, it is admittedly unique. However, this kind of Qi Method that forcefully swallows spirits clearly possesses quite the drawbacks. Perhaps it might be able to strengthen one's strength in the short term, but it is likely that it results in a great sequela. This thing can only be said to be something with both an attraction and a danger. If the Black Emperor Sect were to suffer a great disaster, sect leader might be able to use this method to turn things around. However, it does not have much use under normal circumstances.
"The 'Zong Breaking Pill' of Yan Xiao might only be a tier 6 medicinal pill, but it is able to increase the chances of success in the advancement to the Dou Zong class. Honestly speaking, even if this pill was given to junior sect leader, it is likely that his chances of success will still be extremely low. Once he fails, the medicinal pill will be considered to have been wasted. This Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva, would be given to someone for nothing in return. Of course, if he succeeds, there will naturally be endless benefits for our Black Emperor Sect. Therefore, it is a gamble."
Mo Tian Xing nodded slightly when he heard Qi Shan's analysis. A moment later, he let out a long sigh. A struggle appeared momentarily on his face before he violently clenched his fist. He said in a deep voice, "In that case, we will choose that!"
Qi Shan did not add anything after Mo Tian Xing made up his mind. He nodded slightly before taking a couple of steps back.
Xiao Yan walked out of the light pillar. Due to him being wrapped by a black robe, no one could see the expression he was wearing. Hence, they could only stare at him as he slowly walked back to his seat and quietly sat down.
There were still some other people who entered the light pillar after Xiao Yan came out. However, most people had entered with excitement, but had come out looking depressed. Clearly, the high standards of the Black Emperor Sect had exceeded many people's expectations.
"How is it?"
The Little Fairy Doctor was quiet for a moment as she watched the people passing through the light pillar. Only then did she part her red lips to softly inquire.
Xiao Yan knit his brows under the black robe. He softly sighed before saying, "It is not as good as expected… I have underestimated some people's degree of desire for this Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva."
Although Mo Tian Xing was extremely surprised when Xiao Yan had taken out the Zong Breaking Pill earlier, Xiao Yan had clearly seen the hesitation and struggle within his eyes before the latter recovered his cool. Clearly, an item that had interested Mo Tian Xing had appeared before him. Moreover, he still felt some hesitation after Xiao Yan had taken out the Zong Breaking Pill. From this, one could see that the thing he was interested likely had a value that was not lower than the Zong Breaking Pill. In this way, the confidence in Xiao Yan's heart had significantly diminished.
The Little Fairy Doctor's grayish-purple eyes blinked a couple of times after hearing Xiao Yan's sigh. Her delicate hand gently patted Xiao Yan's arm in a comforting manner as he said with a gentle voice, "There is no need to be too worried. Even if we really fail to win the bid for the Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva, it is not as though we will not have a chance. Actually, quite a number of people present possess similar intentions…"
Xiao Yan was stunned when he heard this. He immediately smiled and a cold glint appeared in his dark-black eyes. He would obtain this Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva at all costs. If he was unable to obtain it through proper means, he could only use one final tactic…
While these thoughts lingered in Xiao Yan's heart, the light pillar on the auction stage suddenly started to pale. The situation within it was visible to everyone's eyes.
"Ke ke, everyone, after the earlier selection, my Black Emperor Sect has our final answer." Mo Tian Xing's eyes swept all around him as he spoke with a smile.
The auction grounds immediately became quiet upon hearing the words of his. All of the gazes carried some curiosity and anxiety as they locked onto Mo Tian Xing.
Mo Tian Xing laughed in front of everyone's gazes, "After a discussion between the Elders of the sect and the old me, the final victor of this auction is…" He purposefully paused for a moment when his words reached this point. He waited until quite a number of people were just staring at him before his finger was suddenly lifted. It pointed to a certain spot in the VIP seats.
"Old Ying Shan!"
The atmosphere in the auction grounds immediately became dull after Mo Tian Xing's words sounded. Quite a number of people in the VIP seats slowly lifted a dark, cold smile to the corner of their lips.
