Painting Of The Nine Immortals Chapter 935In the middle of the auction ground, a fist-sized Stone of Phoenix's Blood was suspended in midair, emitting a dizzying amount of light that caught the attention of all eyes.
Without a doubt, this stone was an invaluable treasure that can be divided into more than 10 Stones of Phoenix's Blood. Ling Xian had the wealth to make his bids.
Everyone's face felt hot as if they had been slapped hard in the face, they ached.
As much as they were embarrassed, they also felt greedy. They wanted to attack right away and take the Stone. However, when they remembered Ling Xian's terrifying Qi, they felt as if cold water had poured over them and they were shaken awake.
Such powerhouses were not people they could provoke.
Everyone bitterly smiled and shook their heads. They were surprised by Ling Xian's wealth and his profound capabilities that were as deep as the ocean.
"Supreme Headmaster, do you have anything else you want to say?"
Ling Xian revealed a faint smile. It was taunting and full of mockery.
The opposition felt like his face has been slapped and he had been humiliated. However, he had nothing to say.
He had self-inflicted this slap.
The corner of Ling Xian's lips curled up and his smile was wiped off. He said in a cold voice, "Then get back there. Speak of a price or admit your loss, why are you wasting my time."
Fang Bie Chen was furious as those words. Terrifying Qi growled out of him and surrounded the entire place.
In the next second, all of his Qi was destroyed.
It wasn't that Ling Xian had attacked. It was that all the other VIPs from their rooms had destroyed his Qi.
After all, none of these people were ordinary. For Fang Bie Chen to surround this place with his own Qi was infuriating.
"Hmmph, fella, I sure want to see just how wealthy you are."
Fang Bie Chen hissed, "Twelve Exquisite Jade."
Then, he looked over provokingly. However, just as his gaze landed on Ling Xian, his face got slapped again.
"Fifth Stones of Phoenix's Blood."
Ling Xian spoke of an astronomical number that made everyone gasp.
What the f!ck!
Even if you have a fist-sized Stone of Phoenix's Blood, you cannot use it so lavishly!
Everyone was speechless. They felt like Ling Xian didn't see the Stone of Phoenix's Blood as what it was, but rather, he saw it as little rocks on the side roads.
"Well, very well."
Fang Bie Chen's face was filled with surprise. Feeling Ling Xian's slap in the face, murderous intent arose. However, he knew that he couldn't attack yet. Or else he would make the auction host his enemy.
Therefore, he swallowed his anger and he stopped raising the price.
Because 15 Stones of Phoenix's Blood has exceeded his financial capability. He could also tell that Ling Xian was set on getting the Lock of Eternity. Even if he uses resources from his House, he was not going to offer more than the Stone of Phoenix's Blood.
Therefore, he could only endure and leave the room.
Everyone widened their eyes at this. They didn't think that the normally aggressive Fang Bie Chen would admit defeat.
This was something unbelievable. However, when they remembered the stone in midair and Ling Xian's nonchalant behavior, they understood.
To be up against someone who didn't think of the Stone of Phoenix's Blood as anything valuable, anyone would just have to admit defeat.
Seeing Fang Bie Chen retreating, Ling Xian smiled and took back the Stone of Phoenix's Blood. He planned on cutting it into 15 pieces.
However, the auctioneer stopped him.
"Please, your highness, wait a second."
The auctioneer tried to please him, "Such a big Stone of Phoenix's Blood it is basically priceless. If you cut it into pieces, it's a waste of the treasure. How about this, we will add this to your tab and you shall continue auctioning with that stone. In the end, we will sum up all the prices."
Ling Xian glared at him. "My object, my way."
Hearing this, the auctioneer bitterly chuckled, knowing that Ling Xian held a grudge against him. He could only apologize and do what he could to please Ling Xian.
"How about this, if you agree to do this, I am willing to give you 10% off."
Ling Xian became interested. To get any discount on such a trade was a good deal.
Therefore, he softly nodded and accepted this proposal.
The auctioneer smiled at this and lifted the spiritual paper with the seal that recorded the Lock of Eternity and sent it to Ling Xian's room. Then, he took out the next item to auction. It was a valuable treasure.
However, Ling Xian was not at all interested.
All of his attention has now been absorbed by the spiritual paper in his hand.
The Lock of Eternity could be considered a devious curse. Based on the writing on the spiritual paper, as long as the several items written on the paper are found, and an incantation is recited, the curse could be placed.
Of course, the pre-requisite is that the person being cursed has to be of the original level or below. If they are above the original level, then this curse would be useless.
"What a devious curse. No wonder the Wang Clan cannot fully get rid of it despite its capabilities."
Ling Xian thought in silence. Then, he began to frown and attempted to find a way to lift the curse from this.
However, even after pondering, he couldn't find a method.
After all, the writing here tells you how to place the curse and not on how to lift it.
"I will have to find the solution slowly. It's not like I am fully fruitless, I have found some clues."
Ling Xian softly smiled. The reason why he decided to take on this object was to help Gong Suo Xin with the curse. But he wasn't hopeful even in the beginning.
Therefore, he wasn't disappointed. Instead, he was actually pretty happy.
The formulation of the curse is now in his hands. He believed that if he can fully understand it, he will be able to find a method.
Just then, the auctioneer took out another treasure, which intrigued him.
Because he took out 10 fragments of the Sixth Samsara.
The Sixth Samsara was an ancient treasure that controlled reincarnations and was extremely powerful. He had acquired a fragment many years ago, then, he found several from Luo Xin Jie.
Now that he has found more fragments, why wouldn't his heart waver?
He wasn't the only one. Others had heated gazes as well. All of them began to shout prices.
Just as everyone fought hard, Ling Xian entered into it. His first offering made everyone chuckle bitterly.
"Ten Stones of Phoenix's Blood."
A gentle statement floated over from afar. His tone was as if he wasn't bidding with the legendary Stone of Phoenix's Blood, but was bidding with a worthless rock.
Everyone exhaled deeply at this and very unanimously chose to shut up. They had stepped out of the fight.
What a joke!
An insane person who doesn't place any importance on the Stone of Phoenix's Blood! Why would they compete against that?
Therefore, everyone chose to give up. There were so many fragments anyway and there was almost no way for anyone to collect them all.
In the end, these 10 fragments ended up in his pockets. These plus the previous five meant he now had 15 fragments.
One has to admit that this was a shocking number. Though it will be a while until everything is collected, he believes he will one day re-reveal the power of the Sixth Samsara!
After the fragments were outbid by him, the auction came to a close.
In front of the auctioneer's sad eyes, Ling Xian broke the stone in half and handed the auctioneer half. However, after sensing two cold gazes on him, he cut out another piece and handed it over to the auctioneer.
Then, a highly presumptuous statement left his lips and echoed throughout the place.
"Take it. Think of it as compensation for me destroying this place."
