Chapter 1092 - Mysterious Lady
An ancient gold token laid on the silver plate with mottled traces, the manifestation of age. At the same time, this token looked extremely ordinary but there was a subtle feeling of uniqueness.
Countless people stared at the token with blazing gazes. The majority of the people here came from the various forces and their motives were all on this mysterious golden token…
Mandala wasn’t the only one that knew about the Second Hall Master. The other top-tiered forces in the Greatlaw Continent had also pretty much done their research regarding the Ancient Haven Palace. So they knew the status of the Second Hall Master, thus attracting their attention when this token was leaked out.
The resources and opportunities in the Ancient Haven Palace were too great and if a single one of the forces could obtain it, then they would be able to soar and become the new ruler of the Greatlaw Continent. At the same time, their forces would also be promoted to being one of the powerhouses in the Great Thousand World!
Thus, anything it could raise their chances in the Ancient Haven Palace, which was extremely precious, and they definitely had to obtain this!
On the third pavilion, the eyes of Xia Hong and the rest had turned sharp and their expressions turned grave.
Finally, the item that they were waiting for had finally appeared.
Han Fei looked at the drooling gazes on the stage, before he chuckled and raised the silver plate, “The starting bid of this will start at 1,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid and every increment must not be less than 1,000,000.”
The starting bid of this item was extremely low, but no one felt assured because of it. That’s because they knew that the price of this would definitely exceed all the three other items.
“2,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid!” Just as everyone had expected, the moment Han Fei finished speaking, a rushed voice had resounded.
“3,000,000!” Before the echoes of that voice could settle down, another bid resounded.
Voices constantly resounded in the auction house, which had instantly raised the atmosphere to the peak and everyone’s eyes were turning red.
In just a few minutes, the competition had already soared to 10,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid.
After the price was raised to 10,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid, the frequency of the biddings finally decreased. But even so, there were still a lot of voices and those definitely had to have a powerful force standing behind them.
Several minutes passed and the price was raised to 16,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid.
“It’s already 16,000,000…”
When Mu Chen saw this scene in the auction, he couldn’t help inwardly smacking his lips. The top-tiered forces have yet to make a move and the price was already so terrifying.
As Mu Chen sighed, a peal of laughter suddenly resounded from the auction, which had instantly caused the fiery atmosphere in this pavilion to pause and countless gazes looked over to see the Young Pavilion Master of the Hidden Dragon Pavilion looking at everyone with a smile on his face. Evidently, he was finally going to make a move after watching the bids.
He had immediately raised the bid from 16,000,000 to 18,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid, increasing the bid by 2,000,000, which had directly caused the countenances of the other experts to turn a little unsightly. In the end, they briefly hesitated before sitting back down.
“Haha. Since Young Pavilion Master Mu is so generous, then my Xia Empire cannot be any weaker. 20,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid.” When Mu Shan called out a bid, an idle voice resounded and Xia Hong had finally made a bid.
Watching this scene, the other forces shook their heads with regret, since they could only watch the wealthy top-tiered forces compete for the token.
A pampered laughter gently resounded with Qin Ya covering her lips as she chuckled, “Since the two of you are interested in it, then let Qin Ya take part in it too.”
“22,000,000.” Jiang Ling of the Sword Saint Sect made a bid without any expression on his face.
With four top-tiered forces making their bids, the price was instantly raised to a terrifying height, which had completely cut off the thoughts of the other forces.
Xia Hong’s gaze flickered as he looked at the other three and said in a cold voice, “25,000,000.”
He definitely had to obtain the token, but the three forces would definitely be an obstruction to him. They might even make him pay a great price, but he wasn’t afraid of not being able to obtain it. In terms of foundation, the Hidden Dragon Pavilion, Horizon Palace and Sword Saint Sect weren’t superior to their Xia Empire.
Mu Shan, Qin Ya and Jiang Ling knitted their brows, since they had clearly felt Xia Hong’s determination to win. 25,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid was definitely not a small amount, even for their forces.
So for a period of time, they had also pondered and started to consider their odds of success.
Xia Hong coldly sneered in his heart. These top-tiered forces with shallow foundations want to compete with my Xia Empire? They’re practically dreaming!
“28,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid.”
Just when Xia Hong was feeling pleased, a calm voice suddenly resounded, which broke the silence.
Everyone had directed their gazes towards the source of the voice and saw Mu Chen, who had previously obtained the incomplete Spiritual Array, standing there with a smile on his face.
“He actually made a bid?!” There were some that felt disbelief as the price of 28,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid wasn’t something that just any force could fork out.
Qin Ya, Mu Shan and the rest looked at Mu Chen with shock in their eyes as well.
Xia Hong was briefly stunned, before looking at Mu Chen with a dark face and said in an eerie voice, “Brat, this is not the place for you to fool around. If you make a reckless bid, you will have to pay the price for that.”
Mu Chen raised his eyelids and faintly replied, “The Fourth Prince doesn’t have to worry about that, my Great Havenlaw Domain can still afford 28,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid.”
Standing beside him, Tan Qiu and the rest were all startled by the bid. They’re only left with 30,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid after Mu Chen’s last purchase and he had bid it at a go.
Although they were stunned, they did not speak a word, since they understood the limits of their wealth. So if they wanted to win the bid, then they would have to put up a façade that they’re rich to intimidate others.
However, they’re not confident that they could intimidate Xia Hong with 28,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid.
Xia Hong’s face became darker as he stared at Mu Chen and a cold light flashed in his eyes. Although their Xia Empire was wealthy, there’s still a limit to what he could use.
Nearly 30,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid could practically support the growth of a second rated force, recruiting countless experts…
Xia Hong’s gaze flickered, before he took a deep breath and coldly said, “30,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid!”
Rustle! The entire auction went into an uproar with everyone dumbfounded, before shaking their heads. Those fellows were truly insane, they could even buy several Quasi-Saint Artifacts with that price. Even in the rumoured Assassin Organization in the Great Thousand World, that price could even invite an Earth Sovereign.
Not only were the spectators stunned by that price, but even Qin Ya and the rest also wore a grave expression, before they inwardly shook their heads.
Everyone then turned to look at Mu Chen, wondering what his decision would be.
Under those gazes, Mu Chen called another bid without any hesitation, “31,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid.”
With a calm expression, no one could see his limits. Only Nine Nether, Tan Qiu and the rest knew that the price was at their limit and they couldn’t even afford another 10,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid.
Rustle! Xia Hong suddenly stood up with a distorted expression. He gritted his teeth and looked at Mu Chen with a vicious gaze, leaving a deep palm print on the armrest, since he never expected that Mu Chen would really dare to play with him!
“35,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid!” Xia Hong had practically howled the price out, which made everyone’s scalp feel numb. He had also reached the limit that his Xia Empire could afford.
Seeing Xia Hong’s distorted expression, Mu Chen’s slender hands gently caressed the armrest with a calm expression. However, he had inwardly sighed in his heart, since he really couldn’t afford to compete with the wealthy Xia Empire.
Even the income of their Great Havenlaw Domain at this moment couldn’t reach that amount.
Thus, he gently shook his head and chose to give up.
“Let’s think of other ways.” Nine Nether spoke in a soft voice. Even if Xia Hong managed to obtain that token, he also might not be able to take it away.
Mu Chen nodded his head, that’s the only choice for now.
“Why are you not bidding anymore?”
Seeing that Mu Chen had given up, Xia Hong’s distorted face turned into a sneer. “A puny Great Havenlaw Domain wants to compete with my Xia Empire? You’re practically overestimating your own abilities!”
With a cold expression, Nine Nether was about to stand up, but she was held down by Mu Chen, since this wasn’t the location to start a fight.
Xia Hong coldly snorted before turning back to Han Fei and said in a cold voice, “Still not going to announce the winner?”
With the price of 35,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid, who else could compete with him?
Han Fei swiftly nodded his head and just when he was about to call an end to the auction, a pampered and sweet voice suddenly resounded, like rumbling thunder that had instantly struck everyone dumbfounded.
“Oh wait, I’ll bid 45,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid.”
The entire pavilion was in silent and Xia Hong’s gaze had become dazed at that price. Even Mu Chen was stunned. Just who was the one that increased the price by 10,000,000?
Did she treat Sovereign Spiritual Liquid like beans?
Who called out the bid?
Everyone frantically searched for the source of the voice and a brief moment later, the gazes all shot towards Mu Chen’s location.
Sensing the gazes, Mu Chen was also stunned, before he quickly turned his head around. Without his knowledge, there was a girl standing behind him holding onto a spiritual fruit that she gobbled on. Her spiritual eyes were emanating with breathtaking charm.
Chewing on the fruit, she looked at the shocked Mu Chen, then she waved her hand and swiftly swallowed the chewed fruit in her mouth and chuckled, “Oh, we meet again, Mu Chen…”
