The Silly Alchemist - chapter-191
The Auction (3)
Thatâ€™s not something regular people would think of. It was the perfect
plan. Usually, people wouldnâ€™t like it because having one more enemy
was way worse than making a friend (thatâ€™d probably not be of much use
However, at the moment, the Coldblood Group didnâ€™t need to consider the
consequences. They were only seeking to achieve their goal within the
shortest time possible. Then again, the Marge family would cease to exist
very soon, so there was nothing to be afraid of.
Right now, she had to look for the perfect target who had an equal ratio
of enemies to friends. Then sheâ€™d have more opportunities for later.
No matter what, she mustnâ€™t offend the most popular person there
though. For example, there was an adorable princess that everyone seemed
â€œLittle brat, bid for this one!â€ Coldblood Seven found an opening.
One of the less popular princes had his eye on one small object,
something even she didnâ€™t like.
â€œOh, not bad! You have a good eye!â€ said Ye Lang. Then, using the
spirit girlâ€™s lips, he gently shouted, â€œOne hundred thousand!â€
One hundred thousand?!
The starting price was only two thousand gold coins, why did she have to
bid so high? A few thousand was already too much. Was participant number
thirteen referring to one hundred thousand silver coins?
Then again, this participant number thirteen was gorgeous. She was so
pretty some people swooned on the spot!
â€œThe lady with number thirteen over there, did you say one hundred
thousand gold coins?â€ asked the bid caller, stunned.
â€œOf course. Would I use coppers?â€ answered the spirit girl, pursing
her lips. From her calm expression, everyone knew she was used to scenes
like this one. She wasnâ€™t a person who would frown over one hundred
â€œLittle idiot, we asked you to bid but you donâ€™t have to bid such a
high price. We donâ€™t have that much money,â€ Coldblood Five was
speechless. Even for a person who didnâ€™t know how to manage money well,
she knew it he was overpaying.
â€œDonâ€™t worry, I have money!â€ said Ye Lang casually.
â€œEven if you do have money, thereâ€™s no need to spend it like this! It
was priced at two thousand, how could you bid at a hundred thousand?!â€
Coldblood Seven was a frugal person. Squandering money was something she
â€œI like paying the hundred thousand. Itâ€™s something valuable, and you
should never take advantage of anyone when youâ€™re buying something! If
the other party really knows his stuff, heâ€™d bid against me!â€
answered Ye Lang.
Only people like Ye Lang could afford to say something like that. As long
as he knew its value, he would never underpay anyone. That was the rule
he lived by, or how would he be a good prodigal son?
â€œFor some random crap? Youâ€™re already an idiot for calling a hundred
thousand, how will there be anyone more idiotic than you?â€ exclaimed
Coldblood Seven and Coldblood Five. They didnâ€™t believe him.
However, there was an unexpected turn of events.
â€œOne hundred and ten thousand!â€ called the prince from before, coldly.
â€œNo way, thereâ€™s someone dumber than you here!â€ Both of them were
Once the prince was willing to bid against Ye Lang, everyone realised
that the value of this object wasnâ€™t as simple as its initial price tag.
â€œDo you all know what that is?â€ asked one of the princes. Even the
royal members were confused.
â€œThese belonged to the legendary king of pirates, Jack! Itâ€™s a magic
cube made of different gemstones and solid gold worth around one to two
thousand gold coins. However, with the pirate kingâ€™s name, itâ€™s still
probably worth ten thousand at most. A hundred thousand is too much!!â€
â€œUnless the eighth prince idolizes the pirate king. Then again, Iâ€™ve
never heard of this hobby of his!â€
â€œThere must be something wrong here!!â€
â€œOne hundred and twenty thousand!!â€ The spirit girlâ€™s melodious
voice rang through the hall. All eyes were on her.
Who was participant number thirteen? A lady who could afford a hundred
and twenty thousand gold coins was definitely not a regular person.
She was gorgeous, and she was rich. They shouldâ€™ve heard of someone
like this, but why didnâ€™t anyone recognise her? Everyone was puzzled.
No matter what, Ye Lang had successfully attracted attention to himself.
Even Coldblood Seven was surprised. She wasnâ€™t sure if it was a good
Coldblood Seven didnâ€™t understand why Ye Lang wanted to buy a small
random object like that!
â€œHow should I address this lady over here?â€ asked the eighth prince,
looking at the spirit girl with great interest. Who was this girl? How
did she know its true value?
He was lucky himself. Heâ€™d found Captain Jackâ€™s diary once, which led
to his realisation of the objectâ€™s true value.
â€œPlease proceed quickly!â€ said the spirit girl to the bid caller,
completely ignoring the eighth prince.
â€œA hundred twenty thousand going onceâ€¦â€
â€œA hundred fifty thousand!!â€ roared the eighth prince, glaring coldly
at the spirit girl. Everyone saw his eyes flash. One could only imagine
how angry he was.
The crowd erupted in conversation. No one expected anyone to call such a
high price for something so small.
What WAS it?
Everyone was curious. Although they could guess that the object was worth
more than a hundred fifty thousand, nobody bid against them because they
didnâ€™t know its exact value.
And that price wasnâ€™t about to be the highest bid!
â€œTwo hundred thousand!â€ shouted Ye Lang, not giving up.
â€œTwo hundred? Are you mad? You brat!!â€ yelled Coldblood Seven,
forgetting herself. Fortunately, she didnâ€™t mention any names.
â€œTo know if Iâ€™m insane, just ask our friend over there,â€ said Ye
Lang. The spirit girl turned to look at the eighth prince.
â€œ…â€ The eighth princeâ€™s face was changing as he clenched his fist.
He looked as if he was about to swallow someone alive.
He was considering making the next bid. If he did, then he was risking
serious disappointment. He hadnâ€™t had a chance to take a good look at
the cube after all. And the two hundred thousand gold coins was something
he had to pay immediately.
He didnâ€™t have that much money on him. If he continued bidding, He
would have to borrow from someone else, and he wouldnâ€™t be able to
proceed with the rest of the auction.
Now what? What should he do??
Itâ€™s all because of that bitch. Who was she? Why did she have so much
â€œYou should start your countdown! How can you be so unprofessional?
When someone canâ€™t decide, you should decide for them!â€ said Ye Lang
to the bid caller. He didnâ€™t mind waiting, but he still wanted to watch
the rest of the auction.
