“Little friend, please forgive me.” Old Yu slowly stretched out his hand and stared at Yang Kai, as if he wanted to deeply look into his heart.
Luo Haiyi’s face was pale as she clenched her fists tightly. She didn’t know if Yang Kai would be able to pass this test, but she didn’t have much money on her, otherwise she could lend it to Yang Kai.
On the other hand, Yang Kai’s expression was calm and even though there was a Fourth Order Open Heaven Stage standing in front of him, he still smiled proudly, “Does Wind and Cloud Auction House have such a rule? How could I not know?”
Old Man Yu frowned. In the past, Wind and Cloud Auction House didn’t have such a rule because everyone had to abide by it, but it was obvious he weren’t a good person, so how could he have the face to talk about rules? Not to mention, a mere Emperor Realm master dared to speak so arrogantly in front of him, so he couldn’t help but angrily say, “Little friend, please cooperate.”
“Boy, don’t waste your breath. If you don’t have any money, hurry up and scram, don’t embarrass yourself here.”
“Hehe, isn’t it too late to leave now? Do you think you can leave after causing trouble here?”
“Old Yu, don’t be polite with him, just attack him directly.”
Inside the private room, everyone was talking at once, obviously eager for the auction to take Yang Kai away so that the auction could continue.
Yang Kai’s eyes flashed. This time, his main purpose was to find trouble with Wind and Cloud Auction House. Who asked them not to compensate him and to have such a bad attitude? However, he didn’t expect that he would offend so many people. From the perspective of others, his actions were indeed a bit offensive, so although the words spoken in the private rooms were a bit harsh, Yang Kai didn’t mind and simply stared at Old Man Yu in front of him, “There’s nothing wrong with checking my financial ability, but what if I have the financial resources?”
Old Yu frowned, “Naturally, the auction will continue.” Although he said so, he didn’t want to believe that Yang Kai really had such wealth. When they entered this auction house, everyone had requested to display their wealth. If he really was some kind of great financial backer, he would have been sent to a private room long ago.
There were only a few hundred thousand people sitting in this hall.
Yang Kai said lightly, “Wind and Cloud Auction House’s actions have ruined my reputation, so how can they simply continue with the auction?”
“Then what do you want?” Old Yu frowned. This boy in front of him was quite difficult to deal with.
Yang Kai looked at him, “Don’t you need to apologize for doing something wrong?”
Old Man Yu’s expression became angry. If this place wasn’t an auction house, he would have told him the consequences of saying such words to him, but this was his family’s territory, so he couldn’t take action against a guest. Even if this guest was only an Emperor Realm master who seemed to be causing trouble, that would only make it seem like the shop was bullying the guest and would affect the reputation of the auction house, so even if he was angry, he could only endure it.
Yang Kai continued, “I can cooperate with the verification process. If it proves that I don’t have the financial resources, you can do whatever you want with me. If I am lucky enough to pass, you can apologize!”
Old Man Yu’s eyes flashed as he muttered to himself for a moment before nodding, “Fine!” This old master was too stubborn, did he really think he could force this old master to retreat? This young man was still too inexperienced.
Just as he was thinking this, the young man in front of him smiled, “I hope Old Yu will keep his word.”
Saying so, he handed over a Space Ring.
Yang Kai’s straightforwardness was something Old Yu hadn’t expected, and he couldn’t help frowning as he thought to himself, Does this little brat really have such great wealth?
Accepting the Space Ring suspiciously, Old Yu scanned it with his Divine Sense and his hand trembled, nearly losing the Space Ring. His eyes, which had been narrowed into slits, suddenly widened in disbelief.
He simply couldn’t believe his eyes. Inside the Space Ring, there were piles of Open Heaven Pills, one after another, so many that he couldn’t even count them.
There was simply no way to count, because there were simply too many of them. Old Man Yu was a Fourth Order Open Heaven Stage master, and he had been overseeing a place like Wind and Cloud Auction House for many years, so it wasn’t like he had never seen money before.
But he had never seen so much money before.
How many Open Heaven Pills did this ring have? It was worth at least a hundred million, it was highly likely that it had around two hundred million. No wonder this little brat didn’t even blink when he was bidding just now.
With so many Open Heaven Pills, not to mention things worth tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands, even if he were to buy everything in the auction, it would only be a drop in the ocean.
Who was this guy? How could he have so much money? Moreover, his strength wasn’t high, yet he still dared to travel around with such a large sum of money. Although there were people from Great Battle Heaven maintaining order in Star City, was he not afraid of accidents?
Waves of shock surged through his heart as he held the ring in his hand and stood there dumbfounded.
“Old Yu?” A voice came from a private room.
Everyone had originally wanted to see Yang Kai make a fool of himself, but after Old Man Yu examined his wealth, he didn’t respond. Many Open Heaven Stage cultivators had good eyesight, so they could naturally see the shock in Old Man Yu’s eyes. None of them knew what was inside the ring that had caused a Fourth Grade Open Heaven Stage cultivator to lose his composure.
Only in Room A6, Pei Buwan seemed to have thought of something and couldn’t help muttering, “This boy is quite bold.”
Last time, he had given Yang Kai eleven million, of which ten million was to compensate the First Inn. He had thought that Yang Kai would definitely hand it over to Madam Lan, but now it seemed that the ten million was still in his hands. No wonder this little brat was so calm and composed, not even afraid of people checking his financial ability.
From the beginning until now, the value of the items he was bidding for had not exceeded two million, so what was there to be afraid of with over ten million?
However, after thinking about it for a moment, he suddenly felt that something was wrong! Even if there really was more than ten million in that ring, it wouldn’t have caused Old Yu to lose his composure like this. Suddenly, he remembered… he wasn’t the only one who had to compensate for the First Inn. There seemed to be dozens of them, each of which was worth ten million…
Hiss… Pei Buwan sucked in a breath of cold air. Could it be that the ring contained more than a hundred million Open Heaven Pills? Although he couldn’t believe it, judging from Old Yu’s expression, his guess should be correct.
“How is it?” Yang Kai looked at Old Man Yu.
Old Man Yu finally came back to his senses and looked at Yang Kai with a complicated expression before handing over the Space Ring and nodding, “Little friend does indeed have the qualifications to bid, this old master was wrong, please forgive me!”
Yang Kai grinned, “Then can the auction continue?”
Old Yu nodded and returned to the backstage.
The auctioneer finally reacted, raising her auction hammer and shouting, “Three hundred thousand going once, three hundred thousand going twice, three hundred thousand going thrice, sold!”
The eyes of the young man in the front row twitched as he stared at Yang Kai. He just couldn’t understand why this guy, who was so rich, was still in the hall like him. Suddenly seeing Yang Kai look at him with a faint smile, he quickly turned his head and lowered his head.
For someone with such wealth, no matter what their cultivation was, they definitely had a powerful backer behind them that he couldn’t afford to offend.
Without waiting for the auction to end, he found an opportunity to slip away.
After being interrupted by Yang Kai, this auction suddenly became somewhat dull. The next few auction items no longer had any bids, all of them being sold to Yang Kai. It was as if this auction was specifically designed for him and everyone else was just a foil.
Because no one was raising the price, the auctioneer’s speed of hammering was extremely fast. In less than half a cup of tea, more than a dozen Fourth Grade materials were all won by Yang Kai. Even Old Bai didn’t make a sound. In any case, with Yang Kai taking action, it didn’t matter if he called out a price or not.
“The next few items are the finale items of this auction. If any of you have any interest in them, please feel free to bid,” The auctioneer stood on the stage and called out somewhat awkwardly, mainly because there was only one voice in the entire auction house just now, making her, the auctioneer, feel somewhat bored.
A maid came up to the stage and presented the auction items.
The auctioneer raised his voice, “Fifth Order Sun's True Fire, starting price is one million, please feel free to bid!”
As soon as her voice fell, the silent auction hall regained some vitality and the Divine Senses from the various private rooms once again spread out to investigate.
Generally speaking, the highest grade of Open Heaven materials available on the market were Fifth Grade and Sixth Grade Open Heaven materials that couldn’t be bought with money unless one had heaven-defying luck.
Although everyone was interested in the previous Fourth Grade materials, they couldn’t argue over them, but the Fifth Grade materials were necessary.
This thing would be a hot commodity anywhere, even in the Cave Heaven.
As soon as the auctioneer finished speaking, someone shouted, “1.2 million!”
Inside Room A6, Pei Buwan was just about to bid when a familiar voice called out, “Three million!”
With these words stuck in his throat, Pei Buwan scratched his head and cursed, “This brat is crazy!”
A Fifth Grade material was normally priced at 1.5 million, and even if the auction house had a slight premium, two million was the limit. Now that Yang Kai had doubled the price, how was he supposed to increase it? This was simply not playing with others.
“Boy, that’s enough, don’t go too far!” A voice called out, clearly somewhat exasperated.
“That’s right, little friend, don’t you think it’s hot after taking so many things?”
“I think this brat is here to cause trouble.”
If it weren’t for the fact that Yang Kai had bought all of these items for himself, everyone would have suspected that this was a request from the Wind and Cloud Auction House. However, at this point, anyone could see that Yang Kai was trying to stir up trouble, but was there any meaning to it? Although an auction where everything was bought by a single person would damage the reputation of the auction house, this person really had to pay a huge price. It was the same as harming the enemy and himself at the same time.
“Old Yu, does this boy have that much money?” One of them asked suspiciously.
Even the auctioneer turned her head to look at Old Man Yu. The item he had just bid for was at most a few hundred thousand, but now he had bid three million, which was ten times the price. It was hard not to be suspicious.
It was just that when Old Man Yu was checking the funds, he didn’t say much, so no one knew how much money Yang Kai had.
Under everyone’s watchful eyes, Old Man Yu lowered his head and remained motionless, secretly smiling bitterly as he thought to himself, What is a few million? That boy’s ring has nearly two hundred million…
