Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-91
In the next room, Meng Hai Zhou and Li Zhen’s face instantly grew
unsightly as they heard this. Say hundreds of thousands of taels of
silver, although not a small number, for them it wasn’t too much
either! It was a number that they could afford without much difficulty!
And after the loss that they took in the Thousand Gold Hall, these
kids’ pants were taken down and were beaten till their asses turned
black and blue. And this trip that they made here was under specific
directions. Their aim was to acquire this Jade Sea Coral at any cost!
Magnificent Jewel Hall, three days before each auction, it would
routinely send to every major family in the Tian Xiang Kingdom, a list of
all the items which were to be auctioned on that particular day. And,
when Li Youran reviewed this list and saw this Jade Sea Coral up on the
list of items, he immediately sent out an order, “The Li Family must
get hold of this Jade Sea Coral at any cost!”
In fact, this auction listings, was regularly sent to the Jun Family too.
But, the Jun Family never seemed to participate in any of such occasions
and over time, they stopped sending the list to the Jun Family’s
residence. Besides, Jun Mo Yi’s intention to collect herbs for his
treatments were extremely secretive. In fact only three people in the Jun
residence knew about the whole situation. If it wasn’t for the
coincidence of me running into Tang Yuan today, I’m afraid that we
surely would have missed the chance to obtain this Burning Heart
Meridian…thought Jun Mo Xie.
This particular Jade Sea Coral, although valuable and has excellent
properties, it is but secondary and only serves as an auxiliary item for
cultivation! However, to Grand Preceptor Li Shang, who had a broken
dantain, this was a magic treasure which could ensure longevity! There
was hope for re-cultivation! Because, Li Youran had found out from a
reliable source that, using this special type of Jade Sea Coral along
with some special methods, it was even possible for one with a broken
dantain to cultivate again! How fortunate would the Li family be if Li
Shang could cultivate again?!
And this effect, only a select few in the entire Tian Xiang Kingdom knew
about it. Li Youran had been long looking for this secret, but, it had
always eluded him!
If Li Shang could prolong his life by a few more years or decades, to the
Li Family, how much of a benefit would it be? So, this piece of Jade Sea
Coral might just be an expensive piece of decoration but to the Li
Family, it directly affected their future!
Now that this has appeared in the auction, it was a great opportunity!
So, the Li Family was determined to obtain this Jade Sea Coral and Li
Youran had ordered Li Zheng and Meng Hai Zhou to obtain this item at all
costs. If Li Youran knew that his meticulously thought out plan would be
broken down today, he would surely have taken this issue up personally
and would not have left it for his lackeys!
The Meng and Li family teaming up with these two family’s extreme
prestige if they bid early on, with a huge amount they would be able to
intimidate all the other interested parties.This was the ‘big’ plan
that they had come up with in order to acquire this item without much
difficulty. How would they have expected that they would encounter this
fatty today? Their old enemy!
Not only that, Jun Mo Xie with this spiritual power spread out, had
already realized their intentions completely. But, this was something
which no one knew!
Though the old man on the stage was a well experienced auctioneer, the
loud shout by Tang Yuan still managed to startle him completely.
For a long time, there was complete silence in the hall when suddenly one
could hear the gnashing of teeth and a shout, “I bid 1.2 million.”
Li Zhen really braced himself to let out this bid. In reality though,
this was not the maximum of their budget, and they could go more as much
as 2 million, but it was just in a hope that it might scare Fatty Tang
Without even faltering a beat, Tang Yuan roared at the top of his voice,
“Fools! Are you trying to scare me away with this pitiful amount?! I
bid 2 million!”
Fatty really and truly shouted out with all his heart! This activity to
make those annoying guys bleed, was an especially fun and enjoyable
Li Zhen and Meng Hai Zhou next door almost vomited blood as they heard
For this bidding war, Li Youran had handed them about 2 million taels of
silver. These guys had estimated that though that piece of Jade was rare
and precious, it would go for about 1 million in the worst case scenario.
2 million was definitely a lot of money and totally excessive! The two of
them even were plotting on how to seize some of the leftover money and
pocket it. They were planning on taking it as a compensation for their
losses in the Thousand Gold Hall. Now, all of their plans were spoilt as
this damn Fatty had been calling ridiculous prices and forced them to go
even beyond than what they could.
As for asking Li Youran for reimbursement for the money they might be
spending extra…they did not even dare to imagine that!
“2.4 million!” This was Li Zhen’s voice. He was already extremely
angry with his face turning green to blue to purple from the rising
frustration and anger and shouted, “Tang Yuan! Do you really want this
Jade Sea Coral? This stuff is absolutely of no use to you. Just give it
“Bullshit! How do you know that this is useless to I, your father! Even
if it is useless to me, why are you spouting this rubbish? What is it to
you? You believe you are very smart and intelligent?” Tang Yuan grunted
and stamped his foot down making the whole box tremble and shouted, “3
Even though the walls of these boxes were soundproofed but with all the
yelling, everyone could hear the commotion that was taking place.
Meng Hai Zhou’s voice sounded out a bit stammering with anger, “3.5
After he called out, he jumped out and came to the door of the Tang
Family’s box and shouted, “Fatty Tang, before, because of the
incident at the Thousand Gold Hall, you already extorted my family of 2
million taels of silver far beyond what your losses were. What do you
want now? Your behaviour here is clearly unreasonable! I’ll be sure to
remember this in the future!
“Huh? You two are really strange! Tang Yuan was the first to bid 1
million on this piece of Jade. No other person was interested, There was
no haggling. He clearly had won the bid. But, it was clear that you
deliberately bid later on to increase the price of this item. It is you
who has malicious intentions against him, this, everyone here can see and
testify too. Now, how come you accuse my good friend here of your
crimes?” It wasn’t Tang Yuan who said these words but Jun Mo Xie. He
continued, “Now you tell me, isn’t it your Li and Meng family which
is being unreasonable?”
As Jun Mo Xie said that, in the opposite box of the Tian Xiang Royal
Kingdom, there sounded a girl’s soft voice which sounded pleasantly
surprised, “Jun Mo Xie is…”. This voice was full of joy,
excitement, full of…relief.
“Jun Mo Xie! This is none of your business. Don’t poke your nose into
this!” Meng Hai Zhou’s voice sounded with his face livid and voice
full of anger. The last time he had seen him, it was when he was out to
teach this debauchee a lesson and swindle him. But, the whole plan blew
up in his face, with him losing all of his money. Because of this, he had
to face a ‘family discipline’ action by the elders at his family.
But, this did not end there as, Tang Yuan had come back later and then
blackmailed him for additional 2 million taels of silver! The injuries he
had faced after the beating had not healed yet and seeing these two
together now, it did not really bring pleasant feelings to his mind!
“My affair is his affair! Now, cut the crap. If you want something,
then take out the money! If you have no money, then get the hell out!”
Tang Yuan shouted like a madman with his belly fat rolling all over the
place. “I bid 4 million! Would you dare fight? Your father, I, is
filled with money! I’ll tell you something, I’ve so much money that I
cannot simply burn it away fast enough! Now, do you dare?”
Everyone in the hall was looking up astonished. On one side was Li and
Meng Families together, while on the other you had the Tang and Jun
families! This clearly had become a fight between these four major
families to vent out their grudges and resentment and ceased to be a
simple bidding war. Everyone simply watched on discretely with their
Grandpa Jun had just caused a bloodbath in the capital recently and the
blood on the streets had not even dried up yet. Who would have the
courage to cause trouble?
Fiercely swearing, Meng Hai Zhou was trembling with anger standing
outside the box. He really wanted to walk out of this whole mess but in
the end did not dare to go against Li Youran as he would have his teeth
broken and would also have to swallow it back down with his blood. With
frustration, Meng Hai Zhou shouted, “I bid 5 million! 5 million taels
of silver! Tang Yuan, do you have the guts the compete with me?”
Jun Mo Xie squinted slightly. With his spiritual awareness spread out, he
could easily pick up every fluctuation in emotions of the people
surrounded by his soul’s power. He could make out that Meng Hai Zhou
was close to the point of hysteria. He also knew that this was probably
the highest number that Meng Hai Zhou and Li Zhen would be able to scrape
out! For Tang Yuan to bid any further, it would simply result in drilling
a hole through their pockets and having to take home that piece of Jade.
Tang Yuan understood and laughed, “Young Master Meng really has a deep
pocket eh? 5 million taels of silver! Paying 10 times more than the
500,000 that this piece of Jade is worth, I really admire you. Admire you
from the bottom of my heart! Actually, this Young Master has not enough
money to continue, and I’m willing to give this piece of Jade to
you.” He then leaned over and whispered into Meng Hai Zhou’s ear
mysteriously, “Young Master Meng. in fact, I did not have any money at
all today. I was just bidding for fun!”
Meng Hai Zhou’s eyes suddenly became round and wide, staring at Tang
Yuan with a pale trembling finger pointed at him he stood there for a few
breaths of time before coughing up blood and staggering back!
“Young Master Meng is extremely weak eh? Fatty just casually said that
he had no money” Jun Mo Xie repeatedly shook his head as he looked at
the shivering Meng Hai Zhou as he fell to the ground and then
contemptuously said, “You cannot even stand such a simple sentence eh?
