My Unrivaled Princess: I Won’t Mess With You - chapter 161
‘Oh, well, forget it, it’s been so long. Hopefully this is the last time that we met, I will let her go as long as she doesn’t so anything stupid. But I do hope she knows who she is dealing with and be smart about it.’ thought Luo Qianqian.
“Forty thousand taels! Is there anyone gong to outbid that? Anyone?”
The hall was filled with passionate people, they were all the most wealthy prominent officials and eminent personages in the capital city or even in the entire country, they were all eager to flaunt their wealth.
“Forty one thousand taels!” soon someone shouted.
Gu Lina tugged at the First Elder’s sleeve and gave him a look, the First Elder was hesitant for a brief second and then he shouted, “Forty five thousand taels!”
The First Elder’s heart was bleeding, little did he expect forty thousand taels would be the extreme for a body armor, he was surprised there were actually people who had outbid him. Unfortunately, he was wrong.
That person outbid the First Elder again while the First Elder clenched his fist and said a prayer in his heart, “Forty six thousand taels!”
“Father, I love the body armor so much, I must have it, please get it for me!” Gu Lina kept begging the First Elder, she was well aware that her father would get her anything she fancied since she was a child, she was confident this time as well.
And sometimes she would just felt so depressed about Murong Yun, she wished she could have one more opportunity, but she knew Murong Yun would teach her a lesson himself if she dared do anything stupid, and she also knew that lesson could be deadly.
Murong Yun never killed women, but he wouldn’t frown upon killing for a woman who dared offend his Qianqian.
The First Elder gritted his teeth, then he noticed how excited his daughter was about this body armor, he didn’t have the heart to say no to her. ‘I will get it for Lina, worst case scenario, I will get less items in the auction.’
“Fifty thousand taels!” the First Elder took a deep breath and shouted it out.
The other guy went silent for a little while, but then he resumed the battle again, “Fifty one thousand taels!”
The First Elder’s eyes turned bloodshot, “Sixty thousand taels!”
Dead silence in the hall.
The other guy cleared his throat gently, people started to turn their heads to have a better look at him, but he just lowered his head and avoided any eye contact with the audience. He opened his mouth, “Senior, will you teach me a lesson if I keep outbidding you?”
The First Elder was thinking if the guy keep outbidding him, he would call it a day and get the body armor for his daughter by hunting the guy down and killing him, but the other guy addressed him as ‘senior’ with respect, he couldn’t say it out loud.
“You can certainly give it a try!” the First Elder sounded so grave.
That had sent chills down everyone’s spine, that was such a scary threat!
The guy curled his lips and buried his head like he was thinking, “All right then, I thought about it, I don’t like it that much, I will let you have, Senior.”
The First Elder turned furious on hearing that, he wished he could confront the guy and asked him what he meant by ‘I don’t like it that much’ and ‘I will let you have it’.
‘First of all, you don’t need to keep outbidding me if you don’t like it, I could have paid forty thousand taels, but I end up paying sixty thousand taels thanks to you. And secondly, you didn’t let me have it, I paid good money for it!’
But no one said anything t make a fool of himself, the auction went on smoothly. Prime Minister Luo bought a few items, Mu Chaoyang got quite a few as well, but nothing had tickled Luo Qianqian until the hostess announced that the next item would be an serpent egg!
“The following item is so different and unique, behold, distinguished guests, I present you this serpent egg! Look how huge it is, it will hatch soon and it will become a deadly poisonous serpent in no time!” the hostess was so engaging and passionate, “When the baby enters adulthood, it will be at least ten meters long and as thick as a log, I’m sure it will be of great help for any cultivator who is able to tame it!”
Luo Qianqian spring to her feet before the hostess finished, this egg… this egg looked exactly like what they had seen in Monster Forest, it just looked a little bit smaller. Luo Qianqian and Murong Yun had witnessed a baby serpent hatched, sometimes she would lost in thoughts and wondered how that baby serpent was going to look like when it got bigger.
Luo Qianqian wasn’t the only one who was that excited to see the egg, the Liangs were more excited.
They came to this auction for this serpent egg, they didn’t spend any big money on the previous items so that they could have enough money to bid for this item, they were hell-bent on getting this egg.
“Why are these people that greedy?” Luo Qianqian murmured, she kept thinking about the mother serpent that she and Murong Yun had helped, she couldn’t imagine how devastated some other mother serpent would be when she had found out human beings had stolen her baby.
“Greedy people can be the most vicious, we respect law of the jungle, but we loathe human beings who use tricks and traps on animals!” replied Lin Zimo, he felt sorry for the mother serpent as well.
Wild animals needed to be tamed if human beings wanted to use them as a helper, Luo Qianqian couldn’t imagine what dark days await the baby serpent if someone like the Liangs get the egg! And the most scary part was sometimes human beings would kill the wild animals for it was impossible to tame them.
“Let’s get the egg then.” Murong Yun whispered at Luo Qianqian’s ear.
Luo Qianqian looked at Murong Yun and said, “You know me, I’m not actually interested in taming a baby serpent, but I just I can’t bear the thought of some scheming people having this egg!”
“I know, Qianqian, I know what you are thinking about, we can always set the baby serpent free after we get it.”
“Great, with the money the Liangs just returned, I think that’s enough. But what if that’s not enough… …”
“Starting price, fifty thousand taels!”
A lot of cultivators were eager to have a serpent to enhance their cultivation, so the hall became quite noisy.
“Sixty five thousand!”
“Seventy five thousand!”
“Eighty thousand!” Prime Minister Luo shouted, Luo Qianqian thought chances were it was Luo Yuyan who urged Prime Minister Luo to bid.
Liang Fengqi observed the situation and shouted, “One hundred thousand taels!” he was willing to pay one hundred and fifty thousand taels, so he kept observing the situation.
Prime Minister Luo gave up.
Mu Chaoyang joined the battle, “One hundred and ten thousand taels.”
