Chapter 617 – Lying on the Couch
Ning Qu didn’t notice the two Daoists sitting in the corner at first, but now he couldn’t help looking at them more. It seemed that the Daoist was very young. The other one waretty and delicate nun who was even younger. Her face was still young and tender, and her chin had a little baby fat on it.
Ning Qu did not dare to look down on the two because he felt that the two of them acted in such a grand manner. It was highly likely that they came from the orthodox sects like Mount Wudang and Mount Dragon and Tiger. And to have such an imposing manner, he must be the most respected young disciple in the sect.
But then he thought again, Wu Dang Mountain, the current disciples under the Zhang Zhenjun, was the pillar of Wu Dang Mountain, also known as the disciples of the first generation, these people held important positions in the Wu Dang Mountain’s Violet Firmament Palace. The second generation disciple was around fifty to sixty years old. With how young these two people were, they should be the fourth generation fifth generation disciples … How could he be so rich?
That was why he got someone to invite An Zheng and Da Da Ye into room A on the second floor. He suspected that those two were some young disciples from a large clan that came to play.
In fact, he was half right.
Thirty Golden-Rank Spirit Stone s, this price was already so high that it was shocking. Although the Ning Family had always been doing business in the auction house, ever since they entered the power center of the Da Xi family, their business affairs had gradually shifted to the periphery. They were managed by people who were not directly related to them.
He was doing so to deal with the imperial government’s officials. After all, he was already one of the largest clans in the imperial government. It would not be worth it if he was criticized for doing business. However, the auction house was a lucrative business. It would be a waste not to continue doing business.
Not long after An Zheng and the others went up, someone below raised the bid to thirty-five Golden-Rank Spirit Stone s. An Zheng, on the other hand, quieted down after entering the room, as if he had lost all interest in the tyrannical crossbow. At the same time, the ones bidding were also the people in the room on the second floor, and the people in the hall below were only there to watch the show.
“He’s really secretive.”
An old man around fifty years old sighed and said, “Now, this Jianghu is really the world of youngsters. When he opened his mouth to bid thirty Golden-Rank Spirit Stone, he did not even bat an eye. This is amazing. ”
“That’s right, I wonder which temple he came from. Could it be from the Violet Firmament Hall in Mount Wudang?”
“Maybe he is a Daoist from Dragon Tiger Mountain.”
“No matter what, this demeanor is worthy of respect.”
“Only in a place like that can a disciple with such an extraordinary appearance be taught.”
The one who spoke looked at the place where An Zheng and the others were sitting, then saw the small, well-behaved pile of dried fruit shells on the table. He coughed a few times, and subconsciously lowered his voice and asked: “Will there be dried fruits at Mount Wudang?”
On the second floor, Ta Ta Ta Nuo stuffed a piece of dessert into her mouth and said contentedly, “If I had known earlier, there would be at least twice as many delicious dishes in the private room on the second floor. I would have arrived long ago. Oh right, Master, why aren’t you bidding anymore? ”
An Zheng said while tasting the tea.
At this time, the bid had already reached forty-eight Golden-Rank Spirit Stone, and the number of people in the room seemed to be increasing. The two servants standing beside An Zheng and the others continued to look at each other, as though they were wondering what was wrong with the two guests. Seeing the way they were eating, the two of them even suspected that the two of them had come up to cheat in order to eat and drink. However, when he thought about the deposit of 10,000 silver that he had received after entering the door, just to trick others into eating, it was obviously a little outrageous.
There was still no sign of An Zheng making a move downstairs, so someone could not help but ask: “He must be a liar, right?”
Someone echoed: “I think so too. He is still young, but he is not someone who can be the head of a sect. How could he take out so many Golden-Rank Spirit Stone s just because he is young? I say, this person just knows that the thirty Golden-Rank Spirit Stonre definitely more than one, so he just randomly named a price and went to the chartered room to eat and drink. ”
From time to time, when people looked up, their shock and admiration turned into contempt.
Da Da Ye drank a mouthful of honey-flower tea, and walked over to An Zheng and asked: “Why aren’t you making a move yet?”
An Zheng narrowed his eyes as he laid on the reclining chair, then shook his head.
After hesitating for a moment, the maid came over and asked, “Dao leader, do you need me to hand over your card?”
An Zheng shook his head: “Even you are getting anxious, are you afraid that we are scammers?”
The maid smiled awkwardly: “Of course not, it’s just that… I’m sorry, Taoist-sir, this servant said the wrong thing, and this servant will be punished for it. ”
An Zheng shook his head: “Forget it, since it’s boring, come and help me take off my shoes.”
The maid was stunned for a moment. “Leader… What did you say? ”
“Help me take off my boots.”
Although the servant was extremely unwilling, she did not dare to causuckus either. She took off An Zheng’s boots and placed them at the side. An Zheng shook his head: “No no no, I’m right at the window, and I’ll put that plate in your boots. If you stand there and shout out loud, the plate will be considered as being raised for a long time, and if anyone offers a price, I’ll have one more Golden-Rank Spirit Stone than him.”
The lady did not dare to stand there and shout, as she was afraid that An Zheng would be implicated if he did not admit to it, so she quickly went downstairs to inform Ning Qu. Ning Qu looked at the boots by the window with an unsightly expression, as well as the bidding plate on the boots …
Just then, the person on the left of An Zheng’s room shouted: “Fifty Golden-Rank Spirit Stone.”
The servant then shouted out for An Zheng: “Fifty-one pieces.”
The room on the right shouted, “Fifty-two.”
The maid shouted, “Fifty-three.”
The people below immediately became excited, the people who said that An Zheng was a scammer felt their faces burning. However, there were also some who were the hardest, insisting that An Zheng and the others were definitely scammers because they saw how intense the competition was, and that he had come to add to the mess.
After bidding to sixty-six Golden-Rank Spirit Stone, An Zheng called Dada Ye over: “I’ll let you have a good time, go and stand at the window and shout, a hundred Golden-Rank Spirit Stone.”
He shook his braid behind his head, cleared his throat, and shouted at the second floor’s window, “My master said that it’s pointless to continue arguing like this. He did take a fancy to the item, but it wouldn’t be worth it no matter how high the price is.
The people below discussed animatedly, “They’re finally admitting their mistake and don’t dare to raise the price anymore.”
“Haha, you can’t afford it.”
Da Ta Ye paused for a moment before saying: “My master said that he would directly bid one hundred Golden-Rank Spirit Stone. If you think that you can still compete, then he will not compete. If you do not fight, Master wants me to thank all of you for the beauty of being able to bear the pain and bear the loss of your loved ones. ”
She clasped her hands and turned away. She was originally a cute and beautiful nun, but her voice was crisp and pleasant to hear. Her appearance was truly beautiful to the extreme.
The curtain on the left side of the room was pushed aside, and a steward came over, holding a box of seemingly exquisite tea in both hands: “This is the real Ten Thousand Dragon Geyser Tea that my owner asked me to send over. In fact, there is only one box of Dragon Geyser Tea, and only after three years can I bring out a box of this kind of tea, although it is noriceless treasure, but it can be considered as a kind of kindness, our owner’s surname is Zhou, if the Taoist has the time, you can come to the house tonight to be a guest.”
Before he could finish, a cold and proud looking woman came out from the room on the right. She looked at the manager and said, “The Zhou family is really stingy. This Taoist, my owner has invited you to tonight’s banquet at Qiantai. This is a small gift … “Looking for your underlings.”
She brought out a small box and opened it. Inside was a small wine pot carved with spirit stones.
“This is the jade wine from the Qiantai City of East Pavilion City. It’s a naturally formed wine, only dropping a single drop a month. Only in five years will it be this small bottle.”
She put down her things and cupped her fists as she said, “The owner of my house is surnamed Chen. I hope that we can drink and chat merrily tonight.”
When he heard that this person was surnamed Chen, that manager left with a cold expression, but didn’t say anything. The Great Sage Emperor’s surname was Chen. That was why when he mentioned the name of the Holy Emperor, he acted in such a grand manner. With such an extraordinary demeanor, who would dare to offend him?
An Zheng took out a sparkling and translucent object from the dimensional tool he carried with him. It was roughly a foot long, and he gave it to the girl: “This is the teeth of a Dragon Lion.
When the originally cold and proud woman heard that it was the Dragon Lion’s teeth, her face changed and her hands received it. She could not help but tremble slightly. If it was really the Dragon Lion’s teeth, then its value could not be measured by money. Everyone knew that there was only one Dragon Lion in this world that was tamed in the Da Xi palace.
After the woman had thanked her and left, An Zheng took out the Dragon Lion’s skin and had Da Da Ye give it to the Zhou family. After all, the Zhou family was a large family, and An Zheng still had some matters to attend to in the Jinling.
Da Da Ye replied. He went over with the leather armor. After a while, he returned.
“What did the people around say?”
“I’m scared silly.”
She sat down and continued to nibble at the melon seeds.
An Zheng took out two pieces of Dragon Lion’s leather armour from his spatial space and chose two of the larger ones. After loading them with dimensional tools, he casually threw them out from the window and landed on the table beside Ning Qu.
“These are two pieces of Dragon Lion’s leather armour. A mighty crossbow for you, give me the rest of your Spirit Stones. “I’ll sell the other piece for me. Let’s see if anyone knows what’s good for them. You can go up and inspect the goods as you like.”
An Zheng was not joking. Other than Purple-Rank, the Dragon Lion’s leather armour could not be damaged. However, there were only so many Purple-Rank s in the world, and they were divided into two types: defense and offense. There were probably only a dozen or so Purple-Rank used to attack and they were the hardest to create. An Zheng’s Broken Army Sword was the best in the world, but in terms of sharpness, it was the best in the world.
Therefore, if this leather armor could be made into an armor, it could be said that it would not be pierced through at all. If he met someone who used a Purple-Rank to attack him, it would be pure bad luck.
Silence reigned in the audience.
“The skin of a Dragon Lion? You must be bragging, right? ”
Someone stood up and said: “I would actually like to see what a Dragon Lion’s skin looks like.”
An Zheng casually took out another long sword from his spatial artifact. With a swoosh, he threw it out and stuck it beside Ning Qu, “I’m just afraid that your tools aren’t good enough. I’ll lend you your swords with Golden-Rank for free. If anyone is able to use this sword to pierce through the leather armour, I will give this sword to them. ”
Someone scoffed, saying that An Zheng had used a fake to deceive people. However, after going up to inspect the goods, everyone was stunned because it was indeed a long sword made from Golden-Rank, and it was even a high-grade Golden-Rank, just a little less than the Purple Golden-Rank.
An Zheng laid down on the chair, narrowed his eyes, and said: “I’ll sleep for a while, someone will only wake me up after they bid last.”
Dada Ye replied, “Alright.”
The white-faced maid at the side pressed her body and asked, “Is there anything else you need help with?”
Da Da Ye waved his hand. “It’s delicious! “The more the better!”
