Senior Brother Guo didn’t say anything more and just sat there in silence. The Proprietress also fell silent and the atmosphere became somewhat awkward.
Although this Senior Brother Guo didn’t talk much with the Proprietress just now, he had inadvertently revealed a lot of information.
The first was that he should have been completely exposed and many Cave Heaven Paradise had probably noticed him, there shouldn’t be any problems in the near future, but in the long run, no one could be certain what kind of attitude this kind of attention would change.
Perhaps it was to suppress him or to win him over, but the only thing he was certain of was that no one would want him to directly break through to the Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage.
Also, the Proprietress really wanted to attack Golden Rainbow Province and Boundless Altar, but these two Second Class forces were not pushovers. If the Proprietress really wanted to attack, with her current strength, she would definitely fail.
At that time, Yang Kai couldn’t just sit back and watch.
However, with his current cultivation, how could he be of any help? Even if he brought all the Open Heaven Stage masters from the Void Land with him, it would not be of any use unless he could get Zhu Jiu Yin to act!
He couldn’t count on this woman. Although she had promised to become his Dao Protector and protect him for a thousand years, that was only under the premise that his life was in danger. She wasn’t an idiot, so how could she follow Yang Kai into this mess?
Yang Kai couldn’t help feeling a sense of urgency and crisis.
As these thoughts flashed through his mind, he suddenly heard a familiar voice say, “Many thanks for everyone’s graciousness, coming here to participate in my Red Clouds Auction's trade fair despite being so busy. There are many old friends and new friends here, so this old master won’t go into detail about the rules. I’m sure everyone here has participated in such a trade fair before, so let’s not waste any time. The trade fair will begin now, after all, everyone here is busy.”
Many Open Heaven Stage masters chuckled.
Yang Kai looked up and saw the old man who had been hosting the auction standing on a round platform in the middle, cupping his hands in greeting. Knowing that this auction had officially begun, Yang Kai immediately focused his attention.
The people present were all Mid Rank Open Heaven Stage masters, with many of them being Fifth or Sixth Order. They definitely had a lot of good things in their possession, perhaps even some of the High Rank resources he needed. However, how to exchange these resources from them would depend on his own ability.
Yang Kai secretly prayed and rubbed his fists.
“Then this old master will first throw a brick to attract jade,” On the round platform, the old man took out an object. It was a two foot long bamboo. Although the bamboo had been dug out, it was still full of vitality and had thick bamboo leaves. What was even more strange was that this bamboo was wrapped in wisps of lightning, constantly flashing between the branches and leaves, creating crackling sounds.
“Sixth Grade Thunderclap Purple Bamboo is a wood-attribute resource, but it gives birth to lightning. If you can refine it, it will give birth to the power of lightning,” The old man said slowly.
Yang Kai’s eyes lit up when he saw this! This was indeed a high-end trade fair, incomparable to an auction. This Sixth Grade resources were usually placed at the back of the auction and were usually the finale items, but they were actually the first to appear in this trade fair.
Although this was also a way for the Red Clouds Auction to raise the level of this trade fair, directly taking out a sixth grade resource was enough to show their boldness.
“This old master doesn’t have any requirements. As long as the price is right, we can exchange for it, even the Open Heaven Pill.” After the old man finished speaking, he stood on the round platform and quietly waited.
Yang Kai looked around and saw many masters around the circular platform taking out their Space Rings, even Senior Brother Guo.
The Proprietress sent a voice transmission over, “Place the item you want to exchange in your Space Ring and then hand it over to the other party. The other party will investigate and select it. If he thinks your price is suitable, he will exchange it with you. If it is unsuitable, he will return it to you.”
Yang Kai understood.
Without hesitation, Yang Kai immediately took out a Space Ring and poured twenty million Open Heaven Pills into it. He had been purchasing all kinds of cultivation resources, so naturally he couldn’t use his own resources to exchange for them, but he had quite a few Open Heaven Pills.
In any case, the other party had already said that the Open Heaven Pill could be exchanged, so twenty million should be enough.
He handed over the ring and waited quietly.
Not long after, all the cultivators who wanted to trade with the old man were ready, and the old man had more than fifty Space Rings.
After all, his requirements weren’t high, so everyone was willing to give it a try. In any case, even if they didn’t choose him in the end, there wouldn’t be any loss.
The old man examined the rings one by one, and after a moment, he took out a ring and said, “Brother Xu from the Sacred Fire Union's has offered the highest price, so this old master will exchange this Thunderclap Purple Bamboo with him.”
Saying so, with a shake of his hand, the Space Rings returned to their respective masters, leaving behind only the one belonging to the Sacred Fire Union's Surnamed Xu cultivator, while the Thunderclap Purple Bamboo flew towards him under a gentle force.
The cultivator surnamed Xu accepted the Thunderclap Purple Bamboo and cupped his fists towards the old man with a look of joy.
Yang Kai, on the other hand, held his Space Ring in shock. Although he had spent 26 million to buy a piece of Sixth Grade Scarlet Yin Sand, it was a Yin Attribute resource and was quite rare, so the price was slightly higher.
For an ordinary Sixth Grade resource, twenty million was more or less enough. Originally, he had thought that there was hope, but who knew that the old man from the Red Clouds Auction would not choose him.
From the looks of it now, perhaps it wasn’t a matter of price, but rather that the Sacred Fire Union had taken out a resource that the old man was interested in.
The first transaction went smoothly and the old man said a few polite words before handing over the venue.
A figure immediately flew up and landed on the stage. It was a petite woman. The woman smiled and bowed, lightly opening her red lips and saying, “The value of the item this Mistress wants to exchange for isn’t that great, please don’t laugh at me.”
Saying so, she took out her own things and Yang Kai looked over. Suddenly, his eyes lit up as he saw the woman take out a fiery red object that was about half a foot long and as thick as an arm.
When his Divine Sense swept over it, he could even feel a trace of vitality.
This thing was a living creature.
“A Ten Thousand Years Fire Silkworm. If it is properly fed, it will produce a Ten Thousand Year Fire Silkworm Pupa every ten years. The grade of this Fire Silkworm Pupa is uncertain. It may be a Third Grade, Fourth Grade, or even a Fifth Grade, or even a Sixth Grade, depending on luck.” The woman smiled as she looked down, her eyes curving into crescents as she continued, “This mistress wants to exchange for a few Fifth Grade materials, but there is no limit to their attributes. As for the quantity… naturally, the more the better.” Saying so, she playfully stuck out her tongue.
Many people below immediately showed interest.
This Ten Thousand Years Fire Silkworm was an extremely rare treasure. If one could obtain it, they would be able to obtain a cultivation resource every ten years. Although its grade was uncertain and it was just a matter of luck, it was always able to reach the fifth or sixth grade.
In the short term, it would definitely be a losing deal, but in the long term, it would be a source of income. However, this kind of thing wasn’t suitable for an individual, after all, the investment would definitely be quite large and the cycle would be long, but it was very suitable for the various great forces as their foundation.
Yang Kai was also quite interested. Although there were Holy Medicine like the Gourd Vine in the Void Land that could continuously produce Fifth Grade resources, there were no Third, Fourth, or Sixth Grade.
If he could bring this Ten Thousand Years Fire Silkworm back, perhaps he could make up for the gap.
“Junior Sister, may I ask what this Fire Silkworm wants to eat?” Someone asked.
The woman turned her head and smiled, “Of course it’s a Fire Attribute item. It eats all Fire Attribute things and is not picky about food.”
“Is it possible that the more precious it is, the higher the grade of the Pupa it produces?”
“Theoretically, it should be so, but I’ve been feeding it some scattered Fire Crystals and Fire Jades, and it has also formed a fifth grade silkworm pupa. Sometimes I feed it some First and Second Grade Fire Attribute resources, but it only forms a Third Grade silkworm pupa. This thing is quite naughty.”
“Many thanks for Junior Sister’s explanation,” The speaker cupped his fists.
Some people asked a few more questions, and the woman answered them one by one. There were some questions she had never encountered before, so naturally she couldn’t give any answers.
After a while, everyone began bidding.
After asking the Proprietress for her opinion, Yang Kai handed over the ring containing the twenty million Open Heaven Pills.
There were many people who were interested in this Fire Silkworm. The woman had collected more than a dozen rings and after checking them one by one, she left one of them behind and returned the rest.
What made Yang Kai speechless was that he hadn’t been chosen again.
Twenty million was definitely not a low price, but since the other party didn’t choose, it meant that they were more interested in the other bids. [Hoogs: Yang boy, she clearly ask for other resources. LOL]
It seemed that the Open Heaven Pill wasn’t omnipotent. Although Open Heaven Pill is necessary for the Mid Rank Open Heaven, in comparison, all kinds of cultivation resources were the most important.
This caused him to be somewhat speechless. Originally, he had hoped that if someone had the High Rank resources he needed, he would throw a large number of Open Heaven Pills at them, but who would have thought that this would happen?
Of course, if he was determined to smash a hundred million Open Heaven Pills, he would definitely succeed, but he wasn’t an idiot, so how could he squander his money like this?
Yang Kai secretly felt that this kind of trade method had a huge advantage for the people on the round platform, because the person who made the bid had no idea where the bottom line of the other bidders was, nor did they know what they had taken in exchange for it. This way, there was no way to increase the price, and instead, it would maximize the benefits of the people on the round platform. After all, even if everyone’s bids were unsatisfactory, Yang Kai could choose not to trade, so there would be no loss.
The woman’s Ten Thousand Years Fire Silkworm was successfully traded, and after she stepped off the stage, many more people came up one after another. First, they showed off the items they wanted to exchange, then made their own requests and waited for others to bid.
Most of them were able to exchange for what they wanted, but there were also some who demanded too much or too little, resulting in failure.
