The attendant requested Ye Xiwen to wait in the hall and went upstairs to inform the chief shopkeeper of the Chamber of Commerce.

After a while, a middle aged man dressed in a robe came out with the attendant and said, "Excuse me for making you wait for so long. I am the chief shopkeeper of the Chamber of Commerce, Xia Chen!"

"Xia Chen!" Ye Xiwen said and cupped his hands in greeting.

"So how should I address you, gentleman?" Xia Chen asked.

"My surname is Wen." Ye Xiwen didn't tell his full name and nor did Xia Chen asked it again. Obviously, everyone had their own secrets and as long as the business deal remained genuine, everything else was fine.



"I do not know what Mr. Wen said about the dragon grass?" Xia Chen asked.

Ye Xiwen pulled out dragon-shaped grass from the void. It was dark green in color and a puff of smoke could be seen clouding around it. It released a group of Lingqi into the surroundings; and even one single puff of its fragrance could fully open one's arteries.

"This really is dragon grass!" Xia Chen said in a trembling voice. Although dragon grass was not the most expensive item, it was definitely very rare because it could only be grown inside a dragon's territory. Even though this dragon grass had grown in a flood dragon's cave, it was still a rare treasure. After all, the dragon grass related to the true dragons only existed in the fables.

"Moreover, this is a second grade dragon grass!" Xia Chen was surprised as he looked at Ye Xiwen. He did not expect that Ye Xiwen would actually have a second grade dragon grass.

Although dragon grass was considered a very rare treasure, since ancient times, a lot of people had been able to find a way to cultivate it. The dragon grass could only be grown inside a dragon territory and Dragonqi was also required for growing it. Therefore, even if one had the seed itself, the dragon grass could not be grown.

So, they thought of a way and captured a lot of demon beasts who possessed the blood vessels of dragons within themselves. That was how they had managed to cultivate rare herbs like dragon grass and various other dragon related medicinal herbs. However, even though those demon beasts had the dragon's blood vessels, they weren't real dragons after all. One must not forget that there was a huge difference between a real dragon and a flood dragon.

Moreover, the quality of the dragon grass was also divided into different grades based on their age and nurturing. Dragon grass was divided into nine grades, with the ones of first grade being of best quality, while the ones of ninth grade were the most inferior.

Although the first grade dragon grass was the best, it was already considered as a legendary medicinal herb by the people. The best quality dragon grass could only be grown near the lair of a true dragon. Whereas the second grade dragon grass could be grown near the lair of a flood dragon that shared a close bloodline with real dragons. Indeed, a second grade dragon grass could not be compared with a dragon grass of first grade; it was still a very rare treasure to come across.

One must know that once a flood dragon was born in the legendary realm, its growth would be very fast and it would reach adulthood very soon, reaching Sage Realm at the end of it. And if someone dared to plunder the lair of a Sage level flood dragon, then was it not equivalent to courting death? This was the reason why second grade dragon grass was such a rare herb.

In the ancient times, only famous experts were said to have obtained second grade dragon grass, not to mention that only a few experts would usually get the chance to obtain one and that too with great difficulty. No wonder then that the dragon grass in Ye Xiwen's hand had amazed Xia Chen.

He was a very old man and had been the chief shopkeeper of the Chamber of Commerce for a very long time, so the surprised expression that had flashed on his face a while ago didn't last long.

Everyone had their own secrets, and it was not considered a good practice to probe into others' secrets.

"Xia Chen, what do you think about this dragon grass? Is it good?" Ye Xiwen asked.

"It is excellent, I must say!" Xia Chen didn't want to praise the dragon grass too much as he further said, "Would you like to sell it to us?"

"I was thinking of auctioning it here in your auction house, however, if you will give me the right price, I would love to sell it to you right now." Ye Xiwen said.

"Really? If Mr. Wen would like to sell this dragon grass to us right now, then we would certainly give the most reasonable price for it and would not let Mr. Wen suffer an early loss!" Xia Chen was pleasantly surprised as he said that. He knew that if Ye Xiwen would have sold this dragon grass in the auction, then it would have slipped away from his hands. Moreover, the news of the appearance of a second grade dragon grass would have definitely attracted the attention of city's strongest masters.

It was certainly one of the best opportunities to draw in tourists and more potential customers. But Tianhui Chamber of Commerce had been in operation for thousands of years; they didn't need to resort to such a stunt to gain popularity.

A lot of people would be interested in buying this second grade dragon grass, so Tianhui Chamber of Commerce would probably wait for the right time to reveal it to the world. In any case, money was not an issue for the Chamber of Commerce, all thanks to its deep foundation of thousands of years as well as its profound accumulation of resources.

Ye Xiwen decided to sell it directly instead selling it at the auction because he couldn't afford to expose himself. Not to mention that his recent exploits had made him quite popular in the region. The sheer number of treasures he possessed could make anyone go crazy.

Therefore, even if he was getting a bit less amount of money for the dragon grass, he didn't care.

"We would give 5 million Ling Dans for this second grade dragon grass. However, if you would sell it in the auction, you may get up to 6 or 7 million Ling Dans!" Xie Chen said.

"That is fine, but I want it right away!" Ye Xiwen nodded.

Xia Chen immediately threw a small bag filled with 5 million Ling Dans towards Ye Xiwen. Ye Xiwen used his soul search skill and verified the quality and quantity of the Ling Dans. He was impressed by its supreme quality. He smiled and said. "Also, I would also like to entrust your Chamber of Commerce to help me in buying some medicinal herbs!"

"What kind of medicinal herbs do you want?" Xia Chen asked and continued, "We may not be the strongest Chamber of Commerce, but you will still find a lot of herbs here!"

"I want to buy Tianyuan fruit, and this and that…" Ye Xiwen had prepared a list of herbs and spoke out all the names of the herbs one after another.

"The other herbs are not difficult to get, but the production of Tianyuan fruit has decreased in the last two years!" Xia Chen said.

Ye Xiwen frowned. Although he had expected this earlier, he still felt disappointed. Tianyuan fruit was a very important ingredient. Even though there were many alternatives to it, but their effects were nothing like it.

"Although we don't have it in our inventory, you may find it in the city's giant market. You can go there and look for things that you need. You will find several warriors in the market who keep all kinds of stuff, and whatever you can't get outside can be easily found in the market." Xia Chen said. There was a sinister look in his eyes as he said this. He already knew that Ye Xiwen was not someone from this city.

"Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. However, how much will these other herbs cost?" Ye Xiwen asked.

"Well, considers these herbs as gifts which we would like to give to Mr. Wen!" Xia Chen said in a generous tone. Ye Xiwen had made a business of 5 million Ling Dans and the combined cost of these ordinary herbs was nothing in comparison to that. In fact, the overall cost of these herbs would not even amount to 1 Ling Dan.

"If that's the case, then thank you!" Ye Xiwen knew that both of them were looking for personal profits and this was definitely not a favor from Xia Chen.

"Since the transaction is already complete, I will take my leave no!" Ye Xiwen said.

"Take care!"

Xia Chen looked at Ye Xiwen's back profile as he was leaving the place. Xia Chen then went to the second floor and opened the door to a room. There was tall woman inside the room who was looking outside the window. She appeared to be in her twenties, had a beautiful face, red lips, jade-like teeth and a pretty nose that was complimenting her overall beauty. Her big eyes were emitting brilliance. She was clad in a yellow robe and looked just like a fairy.

"Miss, I have followed your orders!" Xia Chen said in a respectful manner.

"Good!" The woman replied in a melodious tone.

"I just have one doubt, if I may ask. Since we have found out that that person is Ye Xiwen, then why not…" If Ye Xiwen was here, then he would certainly be shocked. He would be surprised to know that since meeting the attendant to sealing the deal with Xia Chen, not even a quarter of an hour had passed, but his identity had still been discovered.

One could imagine the influence of the Chamber of Commerce.

"And like others, do you also want to intercept him for the sake of one page of Ancient God Scripture?" The woman smiled and said, "This is not how we operate here at Tianhui Chamber of Commerce. Our motto is to keep getting rich while maintaining cordial relations with all!"

"Indeed! That is absolutely right, Miss." Xia Chen quickly nodded and said.

"You have read the news about Ye Xiwen and his killing sprees, right? So many people have tried to kill him but ultimately they all died at his hands!" The woman continued, "Some people are very stupid because they just cannot seem to understand a simple point that these top-notch geniuses have emerged victorious from their respective regional competitions, then how can they possibly be ordinary? In fact, some of them have already been noticed by the elder brothers in TMU. Sooner or later, they would join TMU and make contacts with a lot of formidable experts there. In the end, these young geniuses would become invincible masters. I already have detailed files on some of these young geniuses, Ye Xiwen being one of them. I can already tell that in the future, Ye Xiwen would certainly become my junior disciple. Like they say, beat the snake to death or it will cause endless calamity; if we failed to kill him now, then think about the amount of energy and resources we might have to spend in the future to get rid of him. It would be too costly, simply not worth the effort!"

"Only those fools do not know and think that since TMU recruits new disciples only once in hundred years, so they must take advantage of this event to killing those geniuses and gain a lot of benefits. In fact, several clans have flourished because of this twisted grinding of young talents, while, at the same time, many clans also perished at the hands of those young geniuses. Those fools must consider the fact that these young geniuses would one day become formidable masters of TMU and may enter Sage Realm in the future. When that happens, they would surely come back to seek revenge. If you fail to kill them now, you must be prepared to face their wrath later on. I have heard that Ye Xiwen too has single-handedly destroyed an entire clan to take revenge. Therefore, let them fight while we watch from the sidelines!" The woman said in a cold voice.

"Yes Miss!"
