Previously, Luo HaiYi had also said that a Great Dao Pill could be bought for ten or twenty thousand Open Heaven Pills. Although such a price was nothing to Yang Kai, it wasn’t low for any Emperor Realm master. It was very likely that it was the entire net worth of those low-level cultivators.
However, even so, the starting price of five thousand for the Great Dao Pills continued to soar. In just ten breaths of time, the price had already broken through ten thousand. Luo Haiyi’s expression became somewhat anxious as she tried to bid twice in a row, but to no avail. The bids in the hall continued to rise, showing just how popular these Great Dao Pills were among the Emperor Realm cultivators.
The price of the Great Dao Pill rose steadily, quickly surpassing twenty thousand and approaching the thirty thousand mark.
After a few breaths of time, Luo Haiyi grit her teeth and called out a price of thirty thousand, but in the next moment, she was overtaken by the other party. She couldn’t help showing a depressed expression and didn’t say anything else, obviously giving up. After all, there were a total of ten sets of Great Dao Pills, so there were still other opportunities.
After the price broke past thirty thousand, the bids became noticeably more sparse. It seemed Luo Haiyi was right, the price of this Great Dao Pill was between ten to twenty thousand. The price of two pills at thirty thousand had already exceeded the tolerance of many Emperor Realm, so the bids naturally became fewer.
When the price reached 34,000, no one else raised the bid anymore. The one who called out this bid was a young man sitting in the front row of Yang Kai. At this moment, his expression was tense as he clenched his fists and shouted towards the stage, “No one is bidding anymore, quickly drop the hammer!”
The auctioneer obviously heard this and smiled towards him before picking up the hammer and glancing around, smiled and said, “The first set of Great Dao Pills is 34,000, is there anyone else who wants to bid higher?”
Yang Kai raised his hand, “Forty thousand!”
Shua, shua, shua, shua. The nearby cultivators all turned to look at him in surprise, especially the young man who had called out a price of 34,000.
This wasn’t surprising. Although the price increases between the Emperor Realm were very fast, the increases each time weren’t too great. Normally, it would only increase by five hundred or one thousand. After all, it wasn’t easy for them to save up some Open Heaaven Pills, so who would be willing to invest so much in one go?
Yang Kai raised the price by six thousand, which has never been done before.
Luo Haiyi also stared at Yang Kai in astonishment. She naturally knew that Yang Kai had condensed his Dao Seal long ago, so the Great Dao Pill was useless to him, so she didn’t expect him to participate in the bidding of this Great Dao Pill. Her beautiful eyes flashed and she couldn’t help blushing slightly, obviously misunderstanding something.
“The first set of Great Dao Pills, this friend here bids forty thousand, is there anyone else who wants to bid higher?” The auctioneer asked with a smile. After confirming that no one was bidding, he dropped the hammer three times.
“The starting price for the second set of Great Dao Pills is 34,000, please make your bid!” The auctioneer stretched out his hand and gestured. He had already stated that the starting price for the second set of Great Dao Pills was the second highest bid for the first set. The first set's second highest price was 34,000, so the second set’s starting price was naturally this price, so the auction house would not make a loss.
“34,000!” The young man sitting in front of Yang Kai clenched his fists and shouted. He was the one who had called out the price just now.
Yang Kai calmly raised his hand, “Forty thousand!”
It was as if everything was happening again, no different from before.
The young man turned his head again and glared at Yang Kai, but he didn’t even look at him.
The young man grit his teeth and said, “41,000!” This price was already the limit he could afford. If it was any higher, there was no way he could keep up.
“Fifty thousand!” Yang Kai said indifferently.
“You!” The young man suddenly turned his head, his expression fierce, as if he wanted to bite a piece of meat off Yang Kai.
Many of the surrounding Emperor Realm also looked at Yang Kai with unfriendly expressions. Many of them were here for this Great Dao Pill, so if Yang Kai raised the price so high, they would also suffer a loss. Some even suspected that Yang Kai was a helper hired by the auction house, but after thinking about it, it didn’t seem right. Wind and Cloud Auction House was famous, so they wouldn’t do something so despicable.
The bidding for the second set of Great Dao Pills was very scarce, and only Yang Kai and the young man managed to bid a few times.
Next was the third set.
Before the auctioneer could finish, Yang Kai raised his hand and shouted, “Fifty thousand!”
The young man in the front row couldn’t bear it any longer and shouted angrily, “Why are you buying so many Great Dao Pills? If your aptitude isn’t good enough, no matter how many you buy, it’s useless!”
Generally speaking, if a cultivator’s luck was good, one Great Dao Pill could successfully condense a Dao Seal, most of which would be two. If one didn’t have confidence in themselves, three or four would be enough. Any more and it wouldn’t have a better effect.
Yang Kai had already won two sets, so logically speaking, it should have been enough. There was no need for him to participate in this third set’s auction.
“It’s none of your business how much i buy!” Yang Kai sneered.
The young man’s lungs nearly burst from anger, feeling that this fellow’s appearance was quite disgusting. If it weren’t for the fact that he couldn’t act here, he would have taught him a lesson long ago.
“Fifty-one thousand!” At this moment, another bid rang out, obviously someone couldn’t help participating in the bidding. The previous two sets had been bought by Yang Kai, and judging from his attitude, it seemed he wanted to buy more. There were only ten sets in total, and all of them had been bought by Yang Kai. What would they buy?
Therefore, although the price was a bit high, for the sake of his future, he could only grit his teeth and bid.
As soon as his voice fell, Yang Kai followed up, “60,000!”
Hiss… A series of gasps rang out, many Emperor Realm masters wondering if this guy was crazy. Buying two Great Dao Pills for 60,000 was a price they had not seen in many years.
Inside Room A, Pei Buwan’s mouth twitched as he stared down, “I knew this little brat wouldn’t do anything good, so it’s true!”
He had vaguely guessed that Yang Kai must have gotten into some kind of trouble, otherwise, he wouldn’t have needed to borrow his strength to sneak into the auction house. Now, it seemed that this little brat wanted to stir up trouble and maliciously bid, but what was the point of this malicious bidding? In the end, the item would still fall into his hands.
On the other side, Luo Haiyi was also somewhat dumbfounded. She had originally thought that Yang Kai was participating in the auction to give her the Great Dao Pill, but now it seemed that it wasn’t what she had imagined. Otherwise, why would he bid for three sets?
She could only vaguely guess that Yang Kai had some kind of family or friends who needed Great Dao Pills, and they also needed a lot of them. Thinking about how she was being overly sentimental, she couldn’t help blushing.
The third set of Great Dao Pills was soon sold for sixty thousand.
When it came to the fourth set, the auctioneer didn’t even look around, only staring at Yang Kai as she spoke. Unexpectedly, as soon as he finished speaking, the young man in the front row immediately called out, “60,000!”
The young man didn’t even look around, instead gritting his teeth as he stared at Yang Kai’s bid, as if he wanted to argue with him.
Yang Kai looked at him with a smile and didn’t say anything for a long time. The young man couldn’t help breaking out in a cold sweat. 41 thousand was the limit he had to bear. This time, he had only made a bid because he was angry and wanted to disgust Yang Kai.
Yang Kai sent a voice transmission over, “What do you think will happen to you if I don’t bid?”
The young man couldn’t help swallowing a mouthful of saliva as his face paled slightly. He couldn’t afford a price of 60,000, and if he were to really throw everything in his hands, he would lose everything he had. At that time, he might even have to pawn a life-saving artifact.
As their eyes met, the young man couldn’t help showing a pleading look.
“Sixty thousand going once, sixty thousand going twice…” The auctioneer’s voice was like a curse, causing the young man’s face to turn even paler.
“Seventy thousand!” Yang Kai smiled lightly and called out.
As soon as this price came out, the young man let out a long sigh and almost collapsed on his chair, feeling a sense of relief.
The fifth set of Great Dao Pills began, and someone immediately bid seventy thousand!
When Yang Kai heard this voice, he couldn’t help laughing. It was obviously Old Bai who was making a bid. This guy probably felt that it was a bit excessive for him to monopolize so many Great Dao Pills by himself, so he wanted to share some of the pressure.
Yang Kai didn’t really care. Since Old Bai had bid, he didn’t say anything.
The next few batches of Great Dao Pills were all reserved for Yang Kai and Old Bai. None of the cultivators in the hall made any further bids, and often, the two bidders would make the final bid.
The ten sets of Great Dao Pills were quickly auctioned off, and Yang Kai took action first, obtaining six sets while Old Bai had four.
The auctioneer standing on the stage couldn’t help grinning from ear to ear. After all, the price of two Great Dao Pills for seventy thousand was quite incredible. Generally speaking, thirty thousand was more than enough to double the price. Although Wind and Cloud Auction House was quite wealthy, it was still happy to see such an intense competition because this way, it would be able to stir up the excitement of the next auction.
Sure enough, the price of auction after the Great Dao Pill continued to rise. This auction item was a rare defensive artifact that could even withstand a full-powered strike from a Low Rank Open Heaven Stage's full blow. It was definitely a life-saving treasure. Now, not only were many Emperor Realm participating, but even some Low Rank Open Heaven Stage participating in the bidding, causing the scene to explode.
Yang Kai’s expression was calm and relaxed. After a few rounds of competition, he defeated his opponent and obtained this artifact at a price far higher than normal.
This time, many people looked at Yang Kai with strange looks in their eyes. When they saw Yang Kai repeatedly bid for Great Dao Pills, they had thought that he was a fool with a lot of money, but now it seemed that he really had a lot of money.
However, this was far from the limit.
An hour later, the atmosphere in the auction house became extremely strange. Even the smile of the auctioneer on the auction stage had disappeared and his brow was furrowed.
This was because the dozen or so auction items that had appeared in this hour had all been won by Yang Kai and Old Bai, and each of them had been sold at an absolute price advantage.
Which Emperor Realm master had such a massive amount of wealth? With a rough calculation, these two had each bought more than a million each. What kind of concept was a million Open Heaven Pills? Ordinary Open Heaven Stage masters couldn’t afford it, so how could an Emperor Realm master have so much money?
The young man in the front row, who had almost been tricked by Yang Kai before, now turned back to look at him from time to time, his expression filled with suspicion.
Although Luo Haiyi didn’t know why Yang Kai was bidding so crazily, she wasn’t too worried. She knew that Yang Kai had a million Open Heaven Pills, which was the reward Pei Buwan gave him last time.
