Monarch Of Time Chapter 46
''Our next item is a rare rank2 medicinal herb, the 'water element grass'.''
As soon as Lan Jinjing finished speaking, Shun Long's eyes shone brightly as his attention was all focused on the main stage of the hall where 2 disciples were carrying a bottle with a blue-colored grass inside it.
''The minimum bid for this water element grass will be 500 sect points and every increment has to be at least 50 sect points''
''1000'' Shun Long's heavy voice was heard from inside the private room.
''1100'' Surprisingly a young man's voice was heard from the outer seats as he competed with Shun Long for the 'water element grass'
''2000'' Shun Long said in the same tone as before. The 'water element grass' was extremely important to him as he needed it to refine the rank 2 'internal destruction' pill.
The young man from below contemplated for a bit but still gritted his teeth as he declared
''2200 sect points''
It was obvious that this young man also needed the 'water element grass'
''3000'' Shun Long called again making the young man in the 'outer seats' to feel dejected.
People in the hall were shocked that the price of the 'water element grass' had reached double of its market price. Usually a stalk of 'water element grass' would be sold for 1300 sect points.
Even if the price went up, it wouldn't exceed 1500 sect points but Shun Long had already bid 3000 sect points for it.
After Shun Long's bid of 3000 sect points, no one competed with him for the 'water element grass' any longer and the staff of the 'Treasure Pavilion' sent someone to deliver it to his private room as well as collect the payment.
After Shun Long got his hands on the 'water element grass' he mumbled
''Now all I need is the 'fire-spirit fruit'.''
Yin Xing looked like he something to say something but he didn't know how to say it. Shun Long turned his eyes at him and said
''If you want to say something, just say it''
Yin Xing nodded his head as he responded
''Senior, although no one of the upper echelons of our pavilion would care even if they knew that you slightly inflated the price of the first 3 bottles of 'Qi barrier-breaking pills', I'm afraid that problems could arise due to senior Li's identity.
Senior Li is a high-ranking member in our 'floating cloud sect' and I fear that he may try to create some problems for senior when you leave our 'Treasure Pavilion'.''
Shun Long nodded at Yin Xing's words but he couldn't show any fear for Li Wei or that could expose his identity. After all Shun Long was supposedly a high-level alchemist himself as well. After thinking about it for a bit he said
''Although I'm not afraid of any problems that this Li Wei may try to cause me, I still don't want to waste my time with him.''
The unconcerned manner in which Shun Long spoke had truly fooled Yin Xing who then replied
''Then if senior doesn't mind, how about you leave the pavilion after obtaining everything that you require.''
Shun Long pondered for a bit before nodding his head
''Not a bad idea. Then let's follow your plan.'' Shun Long said in that unconcerned but heavy voice of his.
Yin Xing wiped the sweat from his forehead as he thought inside
''Thank god that senior is so aloof and doesn't care about fighting with others over minor matters, otherwise if I had to meditate over their fight with senior Li I wouldn't have enough layers of skin to save myself.''
What Yin Xing didn't know was that Shun Long was also trying to find a way to avoid Li Wei or that would end up exposing his identity if they were to actually fight. After all, Li Wei had definitely reached the Heaven grade being a silver grade alchemist, and Shun Long would be helpless in front of him if they were to truly fight.
''I have to become even stronger. The rate at which I'm progressing isn't enough. People like Li Wei, and even people like Yin Xing are already far stronger than me. If I want to establish a foothold in the 'cultivation world' I will need to become even stronger than these people. I will do my best to reach the Heaven grade, as only then will I be able to fight with people like Li Wei.''
Just as Shun Long was about to sort out his thoughts, with his goal of reaching the Heaven grade, the triangular-shaped stone sucked in his consciousness, and an insanely strong force repelled everything around Shun Long.
The decorations in the room and even the couch created from the fur of a rank 2 magical beast were all blown to smithereens while Yin Xing who was at the door of the room was thrown outside like a cannonball.
Everything in a radius of 10 meters around Shun Long was repelled and the heavenly pressure that his body seemed to exude could be felt by everyone in the entire 'Auction Hall'.
Everyone felt like they were about to be pulverized from this terrifying pressure as they couldn't even breathe properly. Even Li Wei was on his knees inside his private room due to this terrifying pressure. His eyes were full of terror as he looked towards Shun Long's room and thought of the man who he had wanted to take revenge against, that was now exuding such a pressure.
