The auctioneer was stunned, as if he couldn't believe what he'd just heard. An item with a base price of 100,000 yuan was being sold for 80 million yuan!
Was there something wrong with his ears, or had the world gone crazy?
The cultivators from the other sects were also astonished. They looked at Rong Guofa with wide eyes. It was the first time that they had seen someone raise the price from 40 million to 80 million in a single bid!
This... this was too extreme!
Rong Guofa's girlfriend was also shocked by his behavior. She looked at him in a daze and was rendered speechless for a while. She just gently pulled his sleeve.
Once Rong Guofa stood up and roared, he immediately regretted it. It was said that being impulsive was a sinful tendency. Sometimes, when people were in a mood, they just could not control themselves.
At this time, Zhang Ling turned her face and looked at Rong Guofa coldly. She sneered at Zou Ping in a low voice and said, "Hey, just now I saw him making eye contact with Li Yundong and the others... Now it seems that he is very likely to be one of Li Yundong's accomplices!"
Zou Ping also sneered and said, "They want to raise the price to force us out? They could do it slowly. Why go doubling the price?"
Zhang Ling chuckled darkly. "80 million... It's not a small amount! Now all the cultivation sects have to make a choice: choose to let people take away this Arhat-subduing Demon Tower to preserve their strength, or choose to continue to follow with the bidding and snatch the Arhat-subduing Demon Tower for themselves, so as not to return empty-handed in the future."
Zou Ping continued in a low voice, "Most importantly, this Li Yundong is a Daoist cultivator who can use Buddhist Dharma treasures. If this Dharma treasure falls into his hands, it will be like a bonus for him! Hopefully, we can ensure that this Dharma treasure will not be obtained by him!"
Zhang Ling looked at Rong Guofa with unfriendly eyes, especially when she saw the hidden proud smile exchanged between Su Chan and Zhou Qin. She became more and more sure in her heart and said, "Hum, it's hard to say! However, it's better for them to use up their money!"
At this time, she turned her head and looked elsewhere, gently nodding to a middle-aged man with a plain appearance.
This man immediately raised the paddle in his hand, and the auctioneer shouted, "Someone has offered a higher price! 80 million and 2 thousand! Is there any higher offer than this!?"
However, Rong Guofa did not raise the price again. At this time, he seemed to have used up all his strength and he slowly sank back into his seat. His whole body was covered with sweat, as if he had just been soaking in a water bath.
"80 million! I almost lost everything! Impulsivity will be the death of me!"
Rong Guofa's heart was beating fast, and he couldn't help but feel scared. He kept wiping at the sweat on his forehead with a towel. As the saying goes, there will first be a burst of energy, then a decline, and then a plummet into exhaustion. For a time, he didn't want to spend any more time with Li Yundong. He still had something that he wanted for himself!
At this moment, Li Yundong and Zi Yuan looked at each other. Zi Yuan nodded slightly and said softly, "It's the bottom line. Don't raise the price anymore. At this time, the game of beating drums and spreading flowers has reached its limit. If you shout again, it is very likely that it will end badly for you."
Li Yundong nodded and laughed. "That's what I mean. Although the Demon-subduing Arhat Tower is a powerful magic treasure of Buddhism, it only has a single seal function. Its actual function of Fighting Methods is far inferior to the Psychic Fan of the Seven Treasures. Therefore, I will only buy this magic treasure when it is 80 million yuan."
At this time, all the cultivators in the field seemed to have the same idea and tacitly no longer raised their cards. The real businessmen and buyers were scared by this kind of bravado and madness. For a time, they became spectators, and no one dared to raise their cards again.
At this time, only the auctioneer was left making noise in the lively auction house. He shouted loudly on the stage, "80 million and 2 thousand once! 80 million and 2 thousand twice!"
At this moment, Zou Ping asked anxiously, "Master, why isn't anyone bidding for it?"
Zhang Ling smiled and replied, "Don't worry. There will definitely be someone else bidding soon."
As soon as she finished her words, she saw the auctioneer smash down with his hammer. "Sold for 80 million and 2 thousand! It's a deal!"
Zhang Ling and Zou Ping were stunned. They looked at each other and flew into a huge rage.
Zou Ping was both shocked and furious as she muttered in a low voice, "Master, we've fallen into a trap! We've been fooled by others!"
Zhang Ling hadn't meant to take this magic treasure. From beginning to end, she had just wanted to snatch the medicine king tripod. But she thought that she had found Li Yundong's right-hand man, so she had deliberately raised the price again. She had wanted to use up a little more of Li Yundong's funds.
But she had never thought that this guy would be so timid! She had even ended up buying this Demon-subduing Arhat Tower! Although this magic treasure was powerful, it couldn't be used by her even though she had But bought it!
B*stard, 80 million!!!
Zhang Kongyun, who had been watching from one side, sighed and whispered to his disciple, Zhang Liufang, with a slight smile, "That's it. They are playing with fire and burning themselves!"
Zhang Liufang's face was full of worry. "Master, will our money be enough to buy the king medicine tripod?"
Zhang Ling heard their words clearly, and her face showed how embarrassed and resentful she was. She was so angry that she shouted at Zhang Liufang in a low voice, "Is our Zhengyi School short of even this little money?"
Hearing Zhang Ling's words, Zhang Liufang was so scared that he stuck out his tongue and lowered his head, not daring to speak at all.
Zhang Kongyun said unhappily, "Eldest Senior Sister, why are you shouting at the younger generation? If you really have the ability, you should be shouting at the one who raised the price!"
Zhang Ling was trembling all over. She turned her head angrily and glared at Rong Guofa as if she wanted to engrave this man's disgusting appearance in her mind. She ground her teeth in anger and sneered in her heart, "Hum, well done. I'll remember this slight!"
Li Yundong saw the expressions of Zhang Ling and the others. He couldn't help laughing and said, "Very well. The Zhengyi School has already been knocked out. Now they've suffered a lot."
Zi Yuan smiled and said, "Don't get careless. The Zheng Yi Sect is affluent and wealthy!"
Li Yundong suddenly thought of something. He looked around curiously and said in a low voice, "By the way, why haven't we seen the people of the Gezao Sect of External Alchemy? Logically speaking, they should be the wealthiest guys around. Why hasn't Wan Zhenyuan come? Doesn't he want his magic treasure?"
Zhou Qin sneered and said, "Master, he could take only one Diyuan Jindan and escape. Hasn't he thought that leaving this Medicine King Tripod behind would provoke our sects to kill each other and become enemies?"
Li Yundong frowned and said, "It's not impossible, but..." though he wanted to continue, he felt Su Chan pulling his arm hard and smiling at him, looking smug.
Li Yundong asked curiously, "What's going on? What are you laughing at?"
Su Chan laughed so hard that her eyes seemed to be swallowed up by her cheeks. She whispered a few words in Li Yundong's ear, and he couldn't help laughing. He quickly glanced at Rong Guofa, who was behind him, then reached out and scratched the tip of Su Chan's nose, whispering with a smile, "It turns out that you had such a wicked idea. I was wondering why he suddenly went nuts. You really did a good job this time! I'll reward you after going back home!"
Li Yundong's last sentence was extremely ambiguous, which made the little girl giggle. She remembered the ecstasy of their kiss and couldn't help but feel an itch in her heart. She couldn't wait to do it again with Li Yundong.
Li Yundong, Su Chan, and the others were all chatting and laughing together happily. The relaxing and joyful scene was driving Zhang Ling so mad that her heart was bleeding, and she kept sneering.
After the incident with the Ivory Arhat Tower, the previous madness of the auction had dissipated. After seeing that no one was going to raise the price again, some ordinary businessmen and buyers tentatively offered a few rounds of bids and then came to a quick decision.
After the big battle, all the sects and schools seemed to be resting, restoring their energy and waiting for the real climax.
Soon, all the items at the auction had been successfully won. When the last item was taken, everyone on the scene sat up straight. They were looking at the three-legged tripod with their eyes bright and shining!
The Medicine King Tripod!
The auctioneer excitedly introduced the background of the Medicine King Tripod and spoke of its history on stage, then invited the auction attendees to inspect it.
However, none of the cultivators from various sects went up to look. Instead, some ordinary businessmen and buyers came forward. When they saw the Medicine King Tripod with white mist rolling around it mysteriously, they couldn't help sighing and nodding their heads with praise.
Rong Guofa, who had been looking at it up on stage, returned to his seat and said excitedly to his girlfriend, "It is really a divine treasure, a rare gem! This is what I want!"
His girlfriend also flattered him and said with a pearly smile, "That's right. Your taste is perfect!"
At this time, Su Chan turned around and said with a malicious smile, "Give up. You won't be able to take it away from me!"
The smile on Rong Guofa's face froze. "What do you mean?"
Su Chan giggled and said, "Nothing! You failed to buy that ivory tower, and you'll lose this too!" Then she turned her face back.
Rong Guofa was so angry that he shouted in his heart, "I never really wanted to buy it anyway! Moreover, I bought an item with a base price of 100,000 yuan for 80 million yuan! Am I crazy? This is what I really want now. Let's see if I can get it later!"
Rong Guofa was so angry that his face turned red, and his veins seemed to be popping under his skin. Seeing this, his girlfriend whispered, "Mr. Rong, take no notice of such a little girl..."
Before she could get all her words out, Rong Guofa turned his head and roared at her in a low voice, "Shut up!"
The woman was shocked into silence and did not dare to speak again.
Rong Yan's eyes were red as he stared at the Medicine King Tripod, as if he desired to swallow it up right then and there.
Not long after, the auctioneer announced the beginning of the auction of the Medicine King Tripod. The starting price was five million yuan, and the minimum adding price was ten thousand yuan every time. Rong Guofa raised the paddle in his hand at once and shouted, "10 million yuan!"
The first bid had doubled the price!
The auctioneer was shocked. He excitedly pointed in the direction of Rong Guofa with his hammer and said loudly, "Someone has already offered a price of 10 million yuan. Is there anyone willing to go higher than this?"
Zhang Ling turned her head and looked at Rong Guofa, then sneered and raised the plate in her hand. "Twenty million yuan!"
Wow, the second bid had doubled the price again!
The ordinary businessmen and buyers were struck dumb. They had never seen such an auction before!
Li Yundong and Su Chan looked at each other, and there were no longer relaxed smiles on their faces. Zi Yuan said in a low voice, "The real fight with Jin Yuan has begun!"
Although Kris came from a rich family in the United States and often went to various high-class places, it was the first time she had seen an auction like this where the price was doubled every time. "The situation is so aggressive..." she whispered.
Although Shen Wancai didn't know what the Tripod meant to cultivators, he was keenly aware of the strange atmosphere. He frowned and quickly did some calculations in his mind, still looking in the direction of Li Yundong.
Chang Sheng, who was sitting not far from him, saw Rong Guofa once again raising the price of the Medicine King Tripod up to 50 million. He sneered and said to Tobaku, "The magic treasure used by Sun Simiao, the King of Medicine, is being bid for at such a low price. It's ridiculous! Tobaku, now we can shout our own bids!"
Tobaku nodded, raised the plate in his hand, and shouted loudly in accented Chinese, "Fifty-one million!"
As soon as he finished his cry, Saionji Tsunekatsu scolded him angrily in Japanese, "B*stard, don't you think it's shameful for us to bid like this?"
After that, he grabbed the plate in Tobaku's hand, raised it high, and shouted, "100 million!"
