The Silly Alchemist - chapter-193
Everything Will Work Out In The End (2)
This was also why the eighth prince gave up. When he thought of all the
effort and money put into looking for the treasure, plus the risk of
accidents, investing three hundred thousand was not worth it. He would
rather keep the three hundred thousand for himself.
â€œI donâ€™t knowâ€¦â€ answered Ye Lang casually. He didnâ€™t think too
much into it. Ye Lang was just there to spend money.
Most of the things he owned were very valuable. He just never used them.
The crowd fell silent. They realised this lady might be a little
clueless, but she was still cute. They liked her.
â€œAlright, alright, the deal is done! Letâ€™s move on to the next
item!â€ said Ye Lang. To him, the most important thing was to move on.
The deal was done.
â€œYes, weâ€™ll proceed. We can discuss later!â€
Ye Langâ€™s words reminded everyone they were still at an auction. It
wasnâ€™t the time for casual conversation!
The auction proceeded. Ye Lang continued bidding for a few things. People
thought there wouldnâ€™t be any more drama, but the spirit girl was in
the limelight once again over another small object.
However, this time, Coldblood Seven was worried. He was about to ruin a
perfect situation all because he was about to bid against the little
princess. The most popular, adorable little princess…
It was a very, very tiny object—a necklace with a rare sapphire pendant.
Made by a legendary jeweller, its workmanship was exquisite. Not only was
it valuable, but it was also worth keeping too.
Obviously, the ladies all liked this necklace very much, but they saw the
little princess bidding for it so not many wanted to bid against her. If
all went well, sheâ€™d get the necklace at almost starting price.
Then something unexpected happened- Ye Lang made a bid. The crowd was
stunned, but they thought the gorgeous lady probably liked the necklace
too. It would look so pretty on her.
Why was Ye Lang so interested? He wasnâ€™t, but he saw Coldblood Fiveâ€™s
eyes light up. Sheâ€™d whispered three words, â€œItâ€™s so pretty!â€
And all because of this, Ye Lang immediately started bidding.
Of course, Ye Lang had to stand out. He immediately bid at an insane
price of one hundred thousand gold coinsâ€¦
The little princess glared at the spirit girl. She was very upset as if
someone had taken a toy away from her. The crowd pitied her, especially
her siblings who loved her very much.
And because of this, everyone started to hate Ye Lang!
â€œOne hundred and ten thousand!â€ shouted the princess, clenching her
â€œHundred and twenty!â€
â€œHundred and forty!â€
â€¦ And so they fought.
â€œLittle brat, what are you doing? Youâ€™re going to offend her. It was
all perfect! Look around now! Everyone hates you!â€ exclaimed Coldblood
â€œThey can hate all they want. No one can take away what I want!â€
waved Ye Lang. Once he had his eyes on something, not even the gods could
stop him- unless he ran out of money.
He never cared about money, he didnâ€™t mind if his family went bankrupt!
â€œA hundred and eighty!â€ shouted Ye Lang.
â€œI hate you!!â€ shrieked the princess, sobbing as she glared at the
spirit girl. Everyone hated Ye Lang even more.
â€œI donâ€™t know you!â€ Was Ye Langâ€™s reply.
Fortunately, Ye Lang wasnâ€™t attending as himself but through the spirit
girl. Everyone could dislike the girl, but they wouldnâ€™t hate for long.
It was the benefit of being gorgeous.
Then again, unfortunately, no royal member would approach him anytime
soon because of this. Not without an important reason.
Coldblood Seven was furious. The perfect setup was destroyed by a
necklace and Ye Lang didnâ€™t even like it. It was for Coldblood Five.
At an auction, cash was king. Status didnâ€™t matter. The auction
â€œThe next item is the most-anticipated item of our collectionâ€¦â€
said the auctioneer awkwardly. The most-anticipated items had seemed to
be what Lady Marge won, and Lady Marge herself.
â€œZeusâ€™s Bane of Lightning!â€
A very dull, giant sword appeared on stage. This was what everyone was
waiting for! That was why the crowd was here.
It was a very rare weapon, forged in ancient times from meteorite. This
sword can control lightning, and it didnâ€™t require lightning-related
talent to control. Even regular magicians could use this weapon.
â€œStarting bid at one hundred thousand!â€
â€œOne hundred thousand!â€
â€œTwo hundred thousand!â€
â€œLittle brat, this looks good! Why arenâ€™t you bidding for it? Donâ€™t
you want it?â€ asked Coldblood Seven.
â€œI do, but I donâ€™t have that much money. If Iâ€™d known this would be
up, I wouldnâ€™t have spent so much,â€ said Ye Lang. He knew the sword
would reach a very high price, so his money wouldnâ€™t be enough to win
the bid. He had to observe the bidding before making a decision.
In reality, Ye Lang wanted the sword for its material. He was going to
melt the sword if he got it.
Therefore, this sword wasnâ€™t very important to him!
â€œ…You mean you still have money with you?â€ Coldblood Seven was
speechless. The amount of money he had was terrifying now.
â€œYep! After the auction, Iâ€™ll make an offer double its closing bid to
the guy. Heâ€™s so dead!â€ said Ye Lang solemnly. That was his plan.
â€œFour hundred and fifty thousand!â€
At this point, no one could afford to bid against him. It was the eldest
son of the richest family in the empire.
This gentleman was one of the elites of his generation. Many people
expected great things from this young man!
Although the sword was the most expensive item sold at the auction, no
one was surprised because it was valued at approximately this point.
But the two items Ye Lang bought— that, was surprising.
â€œLady Marge, how will you pay?â€ After the auction, everyone paid
either with their cards or gold coins. Ye Lang hadnâ€™t paid.
Many people were staying to see if this new mysterious new lady had the
money to pay.
Although it was unlikely she couldnâ€™t, the numbers were still
astronomical. Everyone wanted to watch.
