Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
With so many Origin Stones in his hand, Duan Ling Tian did not feel any pressure at all to compete in the auction.
“The opening price for the Mysterious Silver will begin at 100 high-grade Origin Stones!” Soon after, Zhou Ji stood at the stage and announced loudly as he began the auction for the Mysterious Silver in his hands.
“100 high-grade Origin Stones!” Someone began to bid as soon as Zhou Ji’s words left his mouth.
“200 high-grade Origin Stones!” As soon as the former’s words left his mouth, another person followed suit. The functions of the Mysterious Silver clearly piqued many people’s interest.
“300 high-grade Origin Stones!”
“400 high-grade Origin Stones!”
People began to shout when they placed their bids.
Soon after, the price of the Mysterious Silver had already reached 1,000 high-grade Origin Stones. However, the people joining in to bid did not lessen. In fact, it was equally as many as before.
“1,100 high-grade Origin Stones!”
“1,200 high-grade Origin Stones!”
“2,100 high-grade Origin Stones!”
“2,200 high-grade Origin Stones!”
The sounds of people bidding reverberated in the air. Each time a bid was placed, the price would rise by 100 high-grade Origin Stones.
Initially, Duan Ling Tian could still endure. However, in the end, Duan Ling Tian began to feel agitated.
When someone somebody shouted, “3,200 high-grade Origin Stones!”, Duan Ling Tian could no longer remain calm and placed his bid. “10,000 high-grade Origin Stones!”
Although Duan Ling Tian’s voice was not particularly loud, it still drowned out the commotion in Zhou Clan’s Auction Square.
10,000 high-grade Origin Stones!
The moment Duan Ling Tian placed his bid, he attracted everyone’s attention. Everyone’s eyes immediately shifted to him.
“It’s him!” Soon after, many people began to recognize him.
“The woman beside him killed the Young Sect Leader of True Martial Sect earlier! He killed the old man beside the Young Sect Leader of True Martial Sect!”
“Judging by the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon gathered by the Heaven and Earth Energy mobilized by the old man beside the Young Sect Leader of True Martial Sect, the old man must be at the Fifth or Sixth Level Martial Monarch Stage at least.”
“Yet, the sword wielded by him was blocked with just one finger. That man’s strength must be at the Seventh Level Martial Monarch Stage or above!”
Many people were whispering among themselves. Their eyes were filled with dread when they looked at Duan Ling Tian.
For a moment, nobody dared to place a bid.
Perhaps it was because they were shocked by Duan Ling Tian’s high bid, or it could be they were scared of Duan Ling Tian’s strength that they did not dare to bid any further.
After Zhou Ji counted down to three, Duan Ling Tian successfully obtained the Mysterious Silver.
Duan Ling Tian took out 10,000 high-grade Origin Stones and successfully exchanged it for the Mysterious Silver. Zhou Ji, the manager of the Zhou Clan’s Auction Square, even personally delivered the item to his hand.
“If you’re that powerful, you can also be that arrogant!”
Many of the people sighed in agreement as they watched this scene.
“Congratulations, sir.” After Zhou Ji passed the Mysterious Silver to Duan Ling Tian, he smiled and congratulated him before he curiously asked, “Sir, we can be considered as acquaintances now, I wonder what’s your name, sir?”
Duan Ling Tian raised his head and looked at the sky in the distance as though he had noticed something before he casually replied, “You’ll find out very soon.”
The moment Zhou Ji heard this, he left awkwardly. He thought Duan Ling Tian was unwilling to tell him.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
In the next instant, the sound of wind whistling reverberated in the air. The source of that noise came from the place where Duan Ling Tian was staring at.
“They’re here slower than I expected,” Duan Ling Tian muttered.
On the other hand, everyone else, including Zhou Ji, were on their guards for all possible dangers. It was as though they were confronted by their enemy. Each of them had hints of dread on their faces when they heard that noise.
Soon after, five figures appeared. A middle-aged man stood at the lead while the four old men who looked as though they were over seventy years old and approaching death soon.
“Wu Jian?!” Zhou Ji’s face instantly turned grave when he saw the middle-aged man leading the group. He did not seem surprised by their appearance.
“It’s Wu Jian, the Young Sect Leader of True Martial Sect!” Soon after, one of the customers in the Zhou Clan’s Auction Square also recognized the leader of the group of five.
“The Young Sect Leader of True Martial Sect? Wasn’t he killed earlier?” Many people were confused.
“The one who was killed earlier was the other Young Sect Leader of True Martial Sect… The current Sect Leader of True Martial Sect has two sons. The one who was killed was the youngest son. This one’s the eldest son.”
“Ah, I see… However, this other Young Sect Leader of True Martial Sect came pretty fast, didn’t he?”
“I heard this Young Sect Leader of True Martial Sect is made a manager, and he’s fully in charge of the True Martial Sect’s industrial property in Ataraxia City… It’s not strange that he made it here so quickly.”
“Perhaps the lady in red who killed his brother has limited strength, but that purple-clad young man next to that lady in red is a powerhouse at the Seventh Level Martial Monarch Stage or above! I’m afraid it’s a little rash of him to come here with his own men instead of waiting for reinforcement from the other powerhouses in True Martial Sect.”
“Rash? I guess you don’t really know much, do you? This Young Sect Leader of True Martial Sect is a monstrous genius in the Martial Dao. He has already made a breakthrough to the Seventh Level Martial Monarch Stage two years ago.”
“Ahh, really? Then I suppose we can look forward to watching a good show today.”
The entire Zhou Clan’s Auction Square burst into a commotion. The customers were not bidding anymore. Their gazes kept shifting between the five men descending from the sky and the pair of man and woman in the pergola nearby.
They were the protagonists of the day.
“Wu Jian? The Young Sect Leader of True Martial Sect?” After listening to the discussion in his surroundings, Duan Ling Tian discovered the identities of the newcomers. For a moment, he could not help but mutter under his breath, “I wonder what expression that Sect Leader of True Martial Sect would make when he finds out both of his sons died by my hands.”
Soon after, Wu Jian who was hovering in the air glanced around the place. His eyes instantly landed on Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu before he asked in a deep voice, “Are both of you the ones who killed my brother and the elder from my True Martial Sect?”
However, both of them did not seem bothered by him.
“Tian Wu, stay here. Let me deal with him.” Duan Ling Tian said to Tian Wu. After he received Tian Wu’s reply, he rose up from his seat at a speed that was neither fast nor slow and walked out of the pergola slowly.
“What? You want to abandon her and escape on your own?” Wu Jian snorted when he saw this. “Although she’s the one who killed my brother, she would’ve been killed by the elder from my sect if you did not kill him! So don’t even think of fleeing!” Wu Jian’s gaze was piercing when he looked at Duan Ling Tian.
“Flee?” Upon hearing Wu Jian’s words, Duan Ling Tian who had just walked out of the pergola was slightly stunned.
This Wu Jian thought he wanted to flee?
Zhou Ji who was standing on the auction stage had a complicated expression on his face. “Isn’t Wu Jian underestimating his opponent a little?”
He was extremely clear about the purple-clad young man’s strength. It was in no way inferior to his. In fact, it was much stronger than his strength.
However, he did not plan to remind Wu Jian at all.
Duan Ling Tian did not leave as Wu Jian had expected. Instead, he walked out of the pergola and rose up into the air. In just a blink of an eye, he was already hovering in the air, locked in a stalemate with Wu Jian. He asked calmly, “You’re the brother of that good-for-nothing man?”
“Hurmph!” Wu Jian snorted. The air in his surroundings seemed to have turned colder. One could see how infuriated he really was.
“Do you really think just you alone would be enough to make me flee?” Duan Ling Tian sized Wu Jian up and revealed a faint smile on his face. The expression on his face was still calm. He did not even bat an eyelid at this calamity before him. Judging from his words, it seemed like he thought nothing of Wu Jian.
“You’re seeking death!” The moment Wu Jian heard Duan Ling Tian’s mockery, his eyes turned even colder as his body emitted a blood-curdling and cold aura.
He, Wu Jian, was the son of the Sect Leader of True Martial Sect. He was an especially privileged person. Since he was young, he had already demonstrated an extremely monstrous innate talent and comprehension. Since then, he rose rapidly on the social ladder. When he was in his forties, he made a breakthrough to the Martial Monarch Stage and became a Martial Monarch.
Currently, more than ten years had passed, and he was already at the Seventh Level Martial Monarch Stage. He had already become one of the main pillars in the True Martial Sect.
Today, he was here to seek revenge for his beloved younger brother. However, he was humiliated by his enemy and this caused the flame of fury in his heart to burn so intensely that he could no longer suppress it. It was on the verge of exploding.
The Origin Energy on Wu Jian’s body skyrocketed and transformed into milky-white flames in just a blink of an eye, mobilizing the Heaven and Earth Energy above his head that soon whirled and gathered into the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon.
The silhouette of one ancient black dragon appeared, vivid and lively. That ancient black dragon’s enormous body gave a shocking visual impact to the onlookers.
In the next second, the milky-white flames changed and merged with a few Profundities.
When Wu Jian raised his hand, a seven-foot-long spear appeared in his hand. With a flick of that long spear, a sharp ray shot out like a dragon bursting out from its lair.
The Heaven and Earth Energy above his head whirled again immediately and finally gathered into the strength of three ancient black dragons and 1,000 ancient horned dragons.
“DIE!” Without any warning, Wu Jian bellowed and charged toward Duan Ling Tian with his spear. It was as though he had transformed into a bolt of lightning that flashed across the sky.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
A series of explosions resonated in Wu Jian’s wake. Rolling energy caused the air current in the air to tremble. It set off gusts of invisible airwaves that transformed into flurries of hurricanes and swept through the entire Zhou Clan’s Auction Square.
Dust rose up in the air as the hurricane swept through the Auction Square.
However, none of the customers in the Auction Square left. Their gazes were fixed on the purple figure hovering in the sky.
They knew they were about to witness a once-in-a-lifetime show soon.
Wu Jian who was at the Seventh Level Martial Monarch Stage fighting the purple-clad young man who was also at the Seventh Level Martial Monarch Stage.
“Young Sect Leader!” The speed of Wu Jian’s attack was so fast that the four old men behind him could not even react in time. By the time they regained their senses, their Young Sect Leader had already made his move.
At this moment, they had no choice but to brace themselves and follow suit even though they did not feel very confident.
In terms of strength, none of them was stronger than Wu Jian. However, who asked them to be the True Martial Sect’s elders?
Since the Young Sect Leader had already made his move, how could they possibly stand idly at the side and watch?
When Wu Jian and the four old men unleashed their attacks and charged toward Duan Ling Tian, Duan Ling Tian suddenly disappeared before their eyes without any warning. It caused all their attacks to miss.
“How fast!” An uproar immediately erupted among the customers in Zhou Clan’s Auction Square.
