Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-527
Suddenly, a loud and clear voice was heard, “Sikong Family bids
five-hundred-thousand!” Jun Mo Xie found this voice to be familiar. It
turned out that the bidder was an old acquaintance of his’— Sikong An
Ye; he was Head of the Sikong family. Sikong An Ye flashed a faint smile
when he saw that Jun Mo Xie looking over.
This man had been arranged by Jun Mo Xie before the start of the event to
act a phony customer… He was supposed to lure the real customers into
spending more money. It was obvious that these phony customers weren’t of
much use in the present situation. However, Sikong An Ye still hadn’t
held back. Moreover, he had suddenly shot up the bid’s price to
five-hundred-thousand in gold from three-hundred-and-fifty-thousand.
That guy named Wei irritably looked over, “Hey, Little Man Sikong! Do you
even have so much gold with you? Don’t raise the price on purpose!”
Sikong An Ye snorted, and replied, “Mr. Jiang Dong’s Wei, shut your mouth
if you don’t have the money!”
Jun Mo Xie realized that these two families also harbored hatred against
each other as soon as he heard this…
Upstairs, Mei Xue Yan had already told Gian Qing Han to record this; she
had also asked for the Sikong Family to be marked separately. After all,
the Sikong Family was considered as a faithful ally to the Jun family.
So, how can they not pay more attention to them?
Downstairs, a lot of people had begun to bid. Therefore, the competition
had leveled-up, “The Eagle City’s Guan Family bids at
five-hundred-and-twenty-thousand in gold!”
“Southwestern Liu Family bids at five-hundred-and-thirty-thousand in
“Northeastern Xianyu Family bids at six-hundred-thousand in gold…”
The people from the Sikong and Wei families sat down as the other
families started to fall over each other in excitement in order to make
their bids. However, the majority of the influential families were
sitting contented. After all, this was only the fourth of the fifty
batches. So, there was no need to hurry. But, it must be said that the
faster one would get their hands on these pills — the more relieved
Jun Mo Xie was continuously hopping-about the stage while splattering his
saliva in excitement. He was cunningly adding oil and vinegar to the fire
from the stage; he obviously wanted to transform this spectacle into a
massive and unstoppable wildfire.
“Is there any further increase in the price? Is there any? The price is
at six-hundred-thousand in gold now! Six-hundred-thousand in gold… goes
once… Oh! There are friends who are holding up the bidder’s sign…
They appear financially stronger! Good! He bids at
six-hundred-and-fifty-thousand in gold as expected!
Six-hundred-and-fifty-thousand goes once… Right over there… That
brother bids at six-hundred-and-eighty-thousand!
Six-hundred-and-eighty-thousand! These Bone Tempering Pills are in a
refined form… The herbs which were used to refine these pills are
rarely ever found in this world… You might never be able to find these
pills if you miss this chance right now! Over there… The friend bids at
seven-hundred-thousand! Everyone should understand that gold is a trivial
thing… What importance does it hold in comparison to the future of our
families? It may be hard to pay such amounts of money today, but this
hardship will ensure the fall of your enemy in future. And, that will
ensure the success of your family… Over there… a friend… what? Wow!
Eight-hundred-thousand…! Eight-hundred-thousand goes once…
Eight-hundred-thousand… This amount is quite surprising… But, it’s
worth it when one wants the family to prosper for a thousand years…
What is Eight-hundred-thousand for something like that?”
Jun Mo Xie had splattered all of it out in one go. But, the price didn’t
rise any further once it had climbed up to eight-hundred-thousand. After
all, it was about eight-hundred-thousand in gold… Not just any
eight-hundred-thousand clods of land! It was an extremely terrifying
Jun Mo Xie called out the digits five or six times. Eventually, he was
forced to drop the gavel with slight despair in his heart,
“Eight-hundred-thousand goes twice… Eight-hundred-thousand goes thrice!
It is a deal!”
“Only for eight-hundred-thousand…? These rare divine pills can entirely
transform a Xuan practitioner’s body! But, these pills are being sold at
such a small price? Bah! There’s no justice in this world! Such an amount
is given out to old men so that they can buy walking sticks! I would’ve
set these pills at a much higher price if I had known this earlier!”
Great Young Master Jun Mo Xie was feeling very apprehensive. And, he kept
muttering these words endlessly. He had reached a deal a moment ago, but
it was evident that he wasn’t satisfied with it. However, every other
family had been rendered speechless.
The deal had concluded at eight-hundred-thousand!
It was sky-high price! It was sky-high through and through!
It was neither about eight-hundred-thousand in silver…. nor was it
about copper coins; the price was eight-hundred-thousand in gold! Most of
these families were long-standing influential families. So, they could
come up with this kind of money if needed! Even the Huang Family had
managed to do so. But, spending such amounts of money would still hurt
them. However, it must be said that the other families would merely
suffer some hardships, while the Huang Family had been ruined!
Who would’ve agreed to spend eight-hundred-thousand in gold for only
twenty pills if it wasn’t about the future and safety of their family?
After all, each pill was worth forty thousand in gold… Everyone’s scalp
had exploded in the face of such a calculation!
The winner of this round of auction was an old man; he had seemingly
sad-looking facial features.
This old man’s hair were as white as silver; his gaze was sharp, and his
face looked somewhat gloomy. But, one could trace happiness at the
corners of his face.
“But, he’s the Head of the Gongsun Family! That’s Gongsun Jue Dao!”
someone softly called out the name of this old man who had put up
eight-hundred-thousand in-exchange for twenty pills.
Everyone had become apprehensive… [It turned out to be this man!? This
old man is famous for his far-sightedness. But, it seems that these
rumors are wrong. After all, he has spent such a huge sum of money only
for twenty pills! But, he still thinks that this is a blessing! What can
be considered as ‘stupid’ if not this act!]
[People often don’t meet up to their reputation when you meet them in
“It’s certainly feels better to meet a reputed man in person than merely
hearing his name! I had once heard some news a long time ago. People had
said that the Head of the Gongsun Family is extremely far-sighted. He’s
known for his courage and ability to thinking into the future. He has
carried forward his family’s name with his own hands. In fact, it took
him only thirty years to promote his family’s name from to the top level
from that of a third-rate force… He’s genuinely worthy of his name.
And, he’d very far-sighted! Note that Gongsun Family’s Gongsun Jue Dao is
far-sighted and courageous. He possessed first-class thinking. And, he’s
worthy of making friends with,” Mei Xue Yan commented.
Dugu Xiao Yi wrote all this down at a flying speed.
Jun Mo Xie was still unfinished on the stage. So, he came forward with
the fifth batch of pills, and began shouting on the top of his voice.
“Everybody! Everybody! The past is already over. Everyone has arrived
here to create future glory for their family… And, the chance is right
in front of you! What are you waiting for? You will be the hero of your
family if you return home with these twenty pills! And, your
contributions won’t go unnoticed when your family emerges stronger
tomorrow! Your grandsons will admire you for a thousand years; they will
cherish your memories. Let’s come back to the main topic here… These
Bone Tempering Pills are rare… They’re an unprecedented medicine with
an immense potential. So, there is a huge margin for the appreciation in
their value. You might have to spend some money to buy these things
today… But, you will have a ten-fold profit in the future! However, the
price of this fifth batch is still at the same level right now. I now
implore the ‘Eight Immortals to cross the ocean’ and show their talents!
Let’s see whose family blossoms, and whose family falls!”
Jun Mo Xie had been too careless to realize that the old legend of the
‘Eight Immortals’ didn’t exist in this world… In fact, he had
completely overlooked this… However, no one in the audience cared about
this. After all, they were only concerned about the merits of the pill.
Could they care about legends and potential appreciation of these pills’
value? After all, these pills could help their family in nurturing
super-experts in the future! Losing even a single one of them could be
considered a sin. So, how could they pay attention to things like
mythological references…? Or even the re-sale value of these pills?
Instead, they were busy in holding their placards as high as they could!
The atmosphere of the hall had heated to unprecedented levels within
Many of these people could’ve never imagined that the price of these
pills was extremely less right now. They would have to purchase these
pills had a much different price later on. After all, only a few of these
pills would survive many years down the lane. And, those surviving pills
would be sold at a freakishly high price at that time. In fact, each of
these pills would come to cost around three-million in gold in the
future. And, they would have to resign themselves to pay such prices at
Young Master Jun had ensured everyone that these pills would see a
massive appreciation in value. And, he hadn’t joked about this either.
After all, this was a fact! However, this was a fact that would follow-up
in the future…
The fourth batch was sold out at eight-hundred-thousand. However, no one
had expected that this sale-price would turn out to be the lowest one. In
fact, the prices had continued to increase dramatically afterwards. Even
the second-lowest had notched eight-hundred-and-fifty-thousand in gold!
The atmosphere of the hall had grown increasingly intense after the fifth
batch of the pills was sold. Upstairs, Guan Qing Han and Dugu Xiao Yi had
been noting down the comments, analyses, and judgments made by Mei Xue
Yan. They had already jotted-down a thick pile of specific information.
The objective of their research was gradually getting clearer. And, the
differences and disputes among all families were slowly rising to the
Snake King also looked like a secretary who was working under her boss
Mei Xue Yan. She was handling the tasks of classification, summarizing,
distinguishing, arranging, etc. She had even made labels to identity and
differentiate the categories. She was obviously doing this so that the
specific information could be dug out as-and-when needed.
These Bone Tempering Pills had already gained much recognition. After
all, every family was concerned about their future. So, all of them
wanted to attain the magical powers of these pills. In fact, a family
would purposefully raise the price of these pills in case their rivalling
family was competing for it. They wanted to hurt their enemies by
increasing the prices in case they couldn’t get it themselves. After all,
they wanted to beat the enemy by any means possible…
The heated atmosphere of the auction hall had slowly led everyone to
indulge in a furious competition; neither the old, nor the young had been
spared! Nearly everyone was red-eyed. They were hurling abuses at each
other from the corners of their mouths. Some people had even come to the
verge of breaking into a fight then-and-there…
The auction hall would’ve easily turned into a slaughterhouse in no time
if the Three Holy Lands’ people hadn’t been present to keep a watch.
No one was willing to leave the hall. Everyone wanted to know which
families would get to own these pills. After all, these families would
become the center of everyone’s attention in the future. So, the
spectators wanted to note down the names of these families as well as
their most talented youngsters. And, that’s because they would have to
keep a close eye on these people later on.
After all, these people could become their allies in the future… or
maybe even their murderers!
And, who could dare to relax and ignore the precautions under such
Consequently, the number of people present in the hall hadn’t gone down.
Instead, the atmosphere inside the hall had started to soar to even
The auction proceeded in this manner until it was lunch time. It must be
mentioned that the rules of this auction were rather simple. However,
they had still managed to auction out only twelve batches until lunch
time! Such a speed could be compared to that of a snail! Nevertheless,
people were enjoying their time as they stood in a circle to watch the
bustling scene… Everyone was using harsh words towards their
opposition. They were threatening, and even unmasking each other… The
auction hall had come to resemble a microcosm for the entire continent,
and all the grievances of the continent had concentrated in this
However, the two women — Dugu Xiao Yi and Guan Qing Han — were
It was a huge task to arrange these valuable pieces of information! In
fact, both the women were somewhat envious of Tang Yuan at this time.
[That guy only has to move the gold! It’s such an easy job; unlike the
task of writing down everything these five-or-six-hundred people are
saying! Arranging and summarizing all this information is a work that
It could be said that these two girls would’ve collapsed if Mei Xue Yan
hadn’t taken the responsibility of summarizing the information…
Moreover, this was task which came with massive mental-pressure. After
all, this data would determine the direction the Jun Family would take in
the future. So, even a small mistake made at this time could push the
family into assuming an enemy as a friend in the future. And, who could
afford the consequences of something like that…?
It was winter at this time. However, the clothes of these two women had
soaked in their sweat to a point where they had seemingly become
However, Mei Xue Yan’s unparalleled beautiful face had been becoming
increasingly anxious with the passage of time…
