Chapter 181: No peace in the road ahead
Peace City, West Moon Kingdom was the largest city aside from the capital. It was more than a hundred thousand kilometres from Three Springs City.
Within Peace city were rows upon rows of buildings, with streets running all along. People came and went along the streets, it was bustling with activity and was extremely lively.
The Spirit Master Guild was situated at the most bustling street, right in the centre of the city. Being able to position itself here meant that it was the number one influence of power in the entire West Moon Kingdom. Of course, the size of the guild would not be small.
By the time Sima You Yue and the others emerged from the Spirit Master Guild, it was already noon. The people on the streets came and went and it was even more lively than it was at Three Springs City.
There are so many people in this city! Fatty Qu looked at the crowded streets and his drool was about to fall out of his mouth, especially when he saw the numerous beautiful women.
"Drool is about to drip out of your mouth." Wei Zi Qi smiled and teased while giving him a slap on his head.
Fatty Qu unknowingly stretched forth a hand to wipe his mouth. It was only when he realised that there was actually no saliva that he knew Wei Zi Qi was just teasing him.
"Good on you, you actually made fun of me!" Fatty Qu threw a punch at Wei Zi Qi's shoulder.
Bai Yun Qi saw Fatty Qu and Wei Zi Qi bickering and shouted at them, "The two of you can continue fooling around. I'll bring them back first. Don't blame me if you guys can't find the place!"
The two of them, who were bickering with each other, stopped immediately and came back to their side.
"Yun Qi, is the Sandgull Army's place far from here?" Sima You Yue asked.
"Not far, you'll reach after turning a few streets." Bai Yun Qi said, "This street, apart from having the Spirit Master Guild, Mercenary Guild, Beast Master Tamer guild, Alchemist Guild, Armament Master Guild, also has other kinds of shops belonging to the different powers selling pills, spirit beasts, spirit tools and other junk. All sorts of things. Also, the house we're living in is not on this street."
"It's no wonder this street is so bustling." Fatty Qu nodded his head while speaking.
"The flow of customers every day can be said to number tens of thousands. And that's just this street." Bai Yun Qi said.
"It's really bustling!" Sima You Yue said.
Because it wasn't far, they had no need to sit on a Beast Cart and decided to walk there.
Every single shop was bustling and filled to the brim with customers. Sima You Yue's attention was taken completely by large closed door standing in front of a house at the roadside.
"Ugly Person? This name is really strange!" Others stopped as well when they saw that Sima You Yue had stopped.
"What is this place? Why are there so few people?" Wei Zi Qi asked.
"This is an auction. It only opens in the afternoon and night, that's why it's relatively quieter." Bai Yun Qi explained.
"Only operates in the afternoons and nights? This auction is really peculiar!" Fatty Qu said.
"This is Yilin continent's largest auction, where each of the four empires have more than a few shares. Although it only operates in the afternoons and nights, its profits are much higher than other places." Bai Yun Qi said.
"Of course, this place contains many things that you can't find outside. That's why many people come here. This place usually sells things but holds an auction on the last third of every month. It also holds additional auctions if there's any particularly important item.
"I've never been in an auction before in my entire life. When will we be able to experience it?" Fatty Qu looked at Sima You Yue and the others while asking.
"No problem, it will be great even just to increase in knowledge." Wei Zi Qi said.
"There should be an auction happening sometime within these few days. If you want to participate, we can wait a few days before leaving." Bai Yu Qi only said this after he made some mental calculations.
Sima You Yue glanced at Ouyang Fei and Bei Gong Tang and realised the two of them appeared quite excited, so she said, "Then we can stay here for a few days. We'll go after the auction has concluded."
The few of them walked for half an hour before reaching the end of that street. Nobody thought that that stretch would be so long. It was comparable to a city in Dong Chen Kingdom.
They walked to the end of the road and turned a corner before realising that there were just as many people on this street.
"How do you walk, do you have any eyes at all?!"
Sima You Yue and the others just entered that street before they heard that curse.
"Sorry, sorry!" A voice tinged with fear was heard apologising endlessly
Sounds of a whip being used to hit the person were heard, followed by the wailings of a child.
"Whose family does this child belong to, that it doesn't even know how to walk properly. Actually dares to bump into young Miss, are you courting death, or what!"
"Sob Sob, I'm sorry, I didn't do it on purpose! Wa-"
"Not on purpose? Do you think it's fine just because it wasn't done on purpose? You've already bumped into our young miss and injured her! You deserve to be punished!"
The whip was used to strike the body of the child endlessly. The street was filled with people but not a single person dared to stop it.
"This kid, how could he have bumped into that witch."
"Sigh, this kid. Still so young, but it looks like the road ahead seems bleak."
"Who asked the kid not to walk properly. Of all people, the one bumped into was her."
"Sigh, too pitiful."
Sima You Yue stood behind the group of people. Hearing the wails and sounds of beatings coming from the centre along with the gossips all around, she unknowingly furrowed her eyebrows.
"Cruel!" Bai Yun Qi pushed everyone aside and charged to the front when he heard of the happenings from inside.
Sima You Yue and the others followed him in. They saw a twenty over year old female, dressed gorgeously, brandishing a whip in her hand, hitting a young child over and over again.
"Stop!" Bai Yun Qi shouted when he saw that the young child was going to faint from the whipping. "You witch, bullying strangers on this large street. You even want to bully this young child!"
When Qin Wan, who was in a state of euphoria, heard someone scolding her and she stayed her hand for a moment to look over.
"I was wondering who it was. Turns out that it's you, this idiot!" Qin Wan said when she saw Bai Yun Qi, "You didn't die over at the Sofia Mountain Range, but ran over to bother with why I'm beating people?!" This Young Miss has no mood to battle with you today, get lost!"
After she finished speaking, she raised her whip again and it appeared as if she was going to beat the child again.
Bai Yun Qi had yet to make any movement when a silhouette ran out from behind, grabbing on to Qin Wan's hand.
Bei Gong grabbed onto Qin Wan's hand tightly, preventing the whip in her hand from cracking down.
"Where did a sl*t like you come from, that you actually dare to hinder this young miss!" Qin Wan shouted in anger when she saw that her hand had been stopped by Bei Gong Tang.
"Let that child off!" Bei Gong Tang said icily.
"What a joke, do you know who this young miss is? You actually dare to give me orders? Slut who doesn't recognise death. Men, capture her! Being so pretty, you must be a vixen who seduces people. Destroy her face for this young miss!" Qin Wan shouted with a belly full of anger when she saw Bei Gong Tang's appearance clearly and saw that she actually dared to hinder her.
A few tens of men charged over from the back, surrounding Bei Gong Tang.
"Witch, you dare!' Bei Gong Tang bellowed.
