When Li Jingyuan heard this, he was stunned, thinking to himself that he had arrived quickly enough, so how could there be someone who was faster than him?
Taking a closer look at the area where the green light was located, it was shockingly the most prosperous place in the Star City. This kind of place was often the best and most popular.
He understood that this was the shop reserved by the Void Land!
Star City belonged to the Void Land, so it was inevitable that its owner would want to keep the best location. This was something that existed in every Star City, so Li Jingyuan couldn’t help feeling that it was a pity, but he still pointed towards the various shops, “Here, here, and here…”
In a single breath, he pointed out more than a dozen places, all of which were intersecting streets.
Although Li Jingyuan was a Fourth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, he was still a businessman with sharp eyes. Naturally, he could see that these dozen or so places will be the most popular places in Star City in the future. If he could obtain these dozen or so shops first, then Gathering Source Trade Company would be able to take the lead in this Void Land, and no matter what kind of business they did in the future, they would definitely profit.
“Brother, i apologize,” The manager suddenly interrupted, “The Great Chief Commander has ordered that in Void Star City, no one is allowed to own more than three shops. You’ve chosen too many.”
Li Jingyuan was stunned, “There’s such a rule?”
He had been to many Star City before, but this was the first time he had encountered such a rule. Just how confident was Void Land to make such a decision? They were so certain that the Star City would become extremely popular in the future, so they had limited the number of shops available in advance!
However, after thinking about it for the past three days, he felt relieved. As long as nothing unexpected happened, Void Star City would have great prospects.
After a moment of silence, a smile appeared on his face and his hand moved slightly in his sleeve as he placed a Space Ring in front of the Manager, “Sir, my Gathering Source Trade Company has many different kinds of businesses. Three shops aren’t enough, do you think we can make an exception?”
The Manager glanced at the Space Ring on the table and slowly shook his head, “My apologies, Great Chief Commander give the order. I just acted on order.”
“Is there really no other way?” Li Jingyuan was somewhat unwilling to give up.
The Manager shook his head in silence.
Li Jingyuan suddenly thought of something and smiled, “Three shop it is then.”
After selecting the best three shops, he asked eagerly, “How many do I need to buy these three?”
The Manager replied, “Star City Shop, only for rent, not for sell!”
Li Jingyuan frowned slightly, “Are all the shops like this?”
Li Jingyuan clicked his tongue. In all the major Star Cities, some of the shops with good location would indeed not be sold, but there were still some shops that could be sold. Unexpectedly, Void Star City’s shops had no intention of selling it.
Not bothering with this issue any longer, Li Jingyuan said, “Then I’ll rent these three shops.”
The Manager asked, “The shop's lease has a ten year period and a hundred year period, so the price will naturally be different. Which one do you want?”
Li Jingyuan couldn’t help twitching his lips slightly.
After a while, Li Jingyuan walked out of the Viceroy’s mansion. He had been to many Star Cities and had interacted with people who managed the Star City’s shops, but he had never found a Star City with so many rules.
Void Star City’s popularity hadn’t even risen yet, but they were already putting on a stance of waiting for price, which was really irritating.
Moreover, the rent of this shop was not cheap, about twenty percent more expensive than he had estimated. If it was an ordinary Star City, he might not have been willing to pay so much, but since he was optimistic about Void Star City’s future potential, he could only reluctantly sign an agreement with the Manager.
Originally, he had planned to have his subordinates rent more shops, but at this moment, he decided against it. The rental prices of Void Star City’s shops were quite expensive, and although he was optimistic about the future development of this place, in order to avoid making a mistake, it was better to be careful. Three shops could be used to test the waters, and the losses wouldn’t be too great.
This was his original plan…
However, after just two days, he regretted it.
In just a few days, a large number of cultivators had flooded into the Void Land. When he looked towards the Harbor from afar, he saw that there were several flying artifacts lined up in a long line, all of them waiting to be inspected and ready to enter the Star City.
In front of the Viceroy’s mansion, there was also a stream of people. He even saw a few familiar faces, all of them the Managers of other trading companies.
Needless to say, they were also going to rent a shop.
When he made up his mind and entered the Viceroy’s Mansion to ask his subordinates to rent more shops, he discovered that all the shops he had set his eyes on in the Mountain Wave Map had fallen into someone else’s hands.
Star City is getting lively.
After the first batch of cultivators from the Gathering Source Trade Company arrived in the Star City, in the first few days, hundreds of cultivators would arrive from all directions, and as time passed, this number rapidly increased.
Up until today, the number of people who had entered the Star City had reached nearly three thousand! Moreover, this number was still rising crazily. The harbor was almost completely paralyzed and Jin Yuan Lang was extremely busy, he had no choice but to send people to the Void Land to ask Yue He for reinforcements!
When Yue He received the news, she immediately reported it to Yang Kai. Yang Kai allowed Yue He to personally lead her people to the harbor to maintain order.
With the Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage taking action, along with a large number of Void Land disciples, the situation at the harbor gradually improved.
A few days later, Bian Yuqing stood in front of Yang Kai and reported the situation in the Star City. Speaking of the number of cultivators who had entered the Star City, Bian Yuqing said somewhat excitedly, “Sect Master, the number of ships who came today through the harbor has reached 5310.”
Yang Kai nodded slightly and took a sip of tea.
Although this situation was within his expectations, when it actually reached this point, he could finally relax.
The Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill that had been auctioned before had not been wasted. With such a pill appearing and Lu Xue’s last words at the auction, there was no need for Void Land to deliberately promote the Star City. Naturally, people would spread the news.
Once this news spread, it would definitely attract the attention of countless people.
“What about the Star City? How many people are there now?” Yang Kai asked again.
“About eighty thousand people, our Star City can easily accommodate a million people. At this rate, I’m afraid it won’t be long before it’s packed.”
Yang Kai said, “Have Mo Mei strengthen the Star City’s patrolling defenses so that no small fry will secretly stir up trouble and ruin the Star City’s reputation. Anyone who dares cause trouble in the Star City will not be tolerated.”
Bian Yuqing smiled, “Protector Mo has indeed captured many people these past few days, all of them imprisoned in the dungeon.”
Yang Kai raised his head to look in the direction of the Star City and muttered, “The auction should be starting at this time, right?”
Bian Yuqing nodded, “Yes, the auction has already been going on for more than an hour, it should be ending soon.”
“Who is the host this time?”
“It was Manager Yun who personally presided over it!”
Yang Kai nodded lightly. Last time, he had no choice but to force Lu Xue to take action, but now that the auction house had been handed over to Yun Xinghua, it was understandable for him to personally host the auction. Moreover, Yun Xinghua’s experience in this area should be much better than Lu Xue’s.
As they were talking, Bian Yuqing’s expression suddenly changed as she took out a communication bead and examined it with her Divine Sense. A moment later, she happily said, “Sect Master, good news.”
Yang Kai almost spat out his tea and glared at her, “Speak!”
Bian Yuqing pursed her lips and smiled, “The auction this time came to an end, and the final auction item, the Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill, was sold for 3.5 million Open Heaven Pills. All of the auction items received a total of nearly eight million!”
Yang Kai nodded. 3.5 Milliosn Open Heaven Pills was far from enough for the true value of the Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill. Ten million wasn’t much for this thing. The reason why this price had appeared was probably because the cultivators who had come here hadn’t prepared enough. He believed that next time, the price of the Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill would soar once again, and by then, the situation in the Star City would stabilize.
Void Land is sitting on the gold mine Star City. In the future, he would no longer have to worry about his disciples’ cultivation resources.
After resolving the issue of cultivating resources in the Void Land, what remained was the resources he needed.
Seventh Grade Yin Element… Yang Kai didn’t know where to begin, so he was secretly feeling a headache.
Outside the Void Auction House, Shopkeeper Jin and Shopkeeper Tong walked out in a daze. This time, they had also participated in the auction and witnessed the popularity of the last Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill.
Compared to the first auction three months ago, this time’s auction could only be described as brutal. As soon as the Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill appeared, the crowd began to shout out bids one after another, the price rising so quickly that the two were shocked.
“Brother Jin, we really did take a big advantage,” Shopkeeper Tong said happily.
If it weren’t for a lucky coincidence, how could the two of them have been able to obtain a Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill at a price of 140,000? One had to know that today’s Spirit Pill was sold at a high price of 3.5 million, almost ten times their own.
At this point, they no longer doubted the authenticity of this Spirit Pill. If they couldn’t distinguish its authenticity, could it be that others couldn’t? Moreover, the Void Land wouldn’t do such a thing.
“What we need to do now is find someone to sell the Spirit Pill as soon as possible. Void Star City’s popularity is increasing by the day, and we all have our own shops that need funds to operate.”
Shopkeeper Jin said, “Brother Tong, I won’t hide it from you. Yesterday, someone contacted me in private and offered a million Open Heaven Pills to purchase our Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill!”
“A million?” Shopkeeper Tong stared at him, “Why doesn’t he just go rob it!”
If he had not participated in today’s auction, one million would have been enough to tempt him, but after witnessing the situation at the auction, this one million was obviously not enough to tempt him.
Shopkeeper Jin smiled and said, “That’s why I refused, but I think that in the next few days, more people will come to contact you and me. The two of us are going to be separated, if we encounter any problems, we can discuss it.”
