My Unrivaled Princess: I Won’t Mess With You - chapter 162
Liang Fengqi shouted, “One hundred and fifteen thousand taels!”
Mu Chaoyang sneered, he was more than willing to flaunt his wealth, he was the Crown Prince after all, “One hundred and twenty taels!”
Liang Fengqi had no idea who Mu Chaoyang or Murong Yun was, so he clenched his fists and cursed Mu Chaoyang in his heart, “One hundred and thirty taels!”
Mu Chaoyang was sitting in his private room while Liang Fengqi was sitting in the hall, they didn’t see each other’s face, so it was less fun for Mu Chaoyang, he liked it more when he could see how livid the other party was.
Soon Mu Chaoyang changed his mind, he was just bidding for some drama, he wasn’t really interested in taming a baby serpent or so, so he gave up.
Liang Fengqi heaved a sigh and felt a bit more confident, ‘that person went silent, surely I can have this egg now!’
“One hundred and thirty taels going once, One hundred and thirty taels going twice… …”
A girl joined the battle when everyone thought this egg belonged to Liang Fengqi, “One hundred and fifty taels!”
No one could recognize the girl’s voice because Luo Qianqian had muffled her voice.
Liang Fengqi turned his head, trying to see who that girl was. He couldn’t see anyone suspicious but soon he had a hunch, and all of a sudden he couldn’t breathe on thinking about that possibility.
‘It must be Luo Qianqian and that man!’
How Liang Fengqi wished they hadn’t met Luo Qianqian and paid his debt to her, so much money! He could get anything with such a huge amount of money!
Liang Fengqi dared not bid any more, he didn’t have enough money. If he just kept bidding and ended up being unable to pay, he would be doomed. And the security in the venue was watertight, no way could anyone steal anything.
“One hundred and fifty taels! A lady just made that bid! Is there anyone else who would like to out bid?”
“One hundred and fifty taels going once, one hundred and fifty taels going twice, One hundred and fifty taels going three times! Done! This serpent egg is yours, lady!”
“Fengqi, are we just going to let it go?” Liang Yu asked indignantly.
Liang Fengqi glared at her and replied, “What else can we do?”
Liang Yu looked around and whispered, “We’ve brought a lot of people this time, why not find her and… …”
“Shut up!” Liang Fengqi quickly swept across the hall and heaved a sigh of relief as he was sure no one had noticed Liang Yu, he didn’t want to lose his life because of Liang Yu.
Tears brimmed in Liang Yu’s eyes, “Fengqi, why are you talking to me like this? You have been getting more and more impatient with me since we made that trip to Monster Forest. You don’t love me any more?”
Liang Fengqi now had realized what he said was too harsh, so he lowered his voice and comforted her, “Yu, I’m sorry I have taken it out on you like that. I know what you mean, but here is not the place to talk about it. Don’t worry, I will get the serpent egg at all costs.”
Liang Fengqi’s ability was questioned by the elders since he failed his mission at the Monster Forest, he swore he would get the egg this time, otherwise he couldn’t face the ridicule and doubt back at home.
The Liangs had been speaking ill of him behind his back, they all said this future Clan Master was incapable, and all he had ever done was giving lip service, any other young master was more qualified than him to lead them!
Liang Fengqi’s heart was distorted under great pressure.
Liang Ao was so torn, he would love to help his brother get the serpent egg, but he didn’t want to hurt that girl, it was that girl who had saved their lived in the first place, he always loathed ungrateful people, and he refused to become one himself from the bottom of his heart.
“The following item is a rare medicine herb, as we all know, medicine herbs are conducive to longevity, and for cultivators, rare medicine herbs like this one can save lives. It could even avert pestilence. But not everyone takes a shine to medicines, so we won’t name a starting price, it’s all up to you, our distinguished guests.”
The poisoner who had been quiet the whole time now opened his mouth, “Fifty thousand taels!”
The audience gazed at each other in speechless despair, how come someone was willing to pay such an astronomical figure for some medicine herb!
The majority just thought this round was of no significance, little did they expect that someone would name such a high starting price.
Luo Qianqian stamped her foot in anger, “Is he doing that on purpose? How can anyone else outbid him!”
Su Liancheng nodded in agreement, “Sister-in-law, don’t worry, we got you. Mo, you are the expert here, how are we playing this?”
Luo Qianqian clenched her fists and her face now had turned tomato red due to anger. Murong Yun pinched her cheek and said in an almost playful tone, “Fifty thousand and one taels.”
The poisoner was a bit shocked, he didn’t expect there would be someone who was able to appreciate the medicine herb like himself. But he was baffled why that someone would only outbid him by one tael.
“Fifty one thousand!” the Poisoner frowned.
“Fifty one thousand and one!” Murong Yun added promptly.
“Fifty two thousand!”
“Fifty two thousand and one!”
Murong Yun kept outbidding the Poisoner by one tael, and Luo Qianqian stopped him when the Poisoner made a bid of one hundred thousand taels.
“Is the Poisoner a good guy or a bad guy?” Luo Qianqian asked.
“Bad doesn’t begin to describe him, he is a villain!”
“His venomous insects is notorious, he uses his insects to hurt people, especially the Xiaos!”
“Let him have the medicine herb then.” replied Luo Qianqian.
“What do you mean, sister-in-law?”
Guang Yao looked confused as well, he knew how much Luo Qianqian would love to have the herb.
“Well, he can pay for it.” Luo Qianqian winked, what she didn’t say was ‘But it doesn’t necessarily mean he can have it after he pays for it.’
