The Silly Alchemist Chapter 446Li Yue (2)
Mr Ford, this is your number. Keep it with you. A staff member handed a sign with the number to Ye Lang.
Unless they came often, customers were given temporary numbers. The Soaring Sky Empire was a place of high traffic, most people were visitors and did not stay long.
9526? Interesting. Ye Lang was stunned for a moment then kept his number.
A surge of familiar emotions came rushing as he stepped into the auction hall. The bustling atmosphere, the sounds of rich folks showing off all boosted his mood.
Its starting! Ye Lang said excitedly as he looked for a seat.
As he sat down to watch the auction goods presented on stage. Suddenly, he felt an aura of violence He turned FUCK! Ye Lang leapt away in surprise but
Ahh Ye Lang flailed his arms and legs.
His chair collapsed on the ground after his flailing, while Ye Lang fell on his ass, looking very pathetic.
Whats the matter with you? a cold, sharp voice came from a frigid girl next to him, surprised at his reaction.
She intended to intimidate him so he would leave but she didnt imagine shed scare him THIS much!
Nothing, I think I saw a ghost! Ye Lang composed himself. I dont know her, why am I even afraid of her?
And because he was in disguise, he deliberately wiggled his ears and his tail
... The frigid girl was silent. What are you wiggling your tail for? And did you just call me a ghost?
From his expression, it was as if he had been scared by something familiar but there wasnt anyone nearby She didnt think she looked THAT scary nor had she met him before.
Whatever, if he says he saw a ghost, he saw a ghost.
The frigid girl decided to ignore Ye Lang but he was doing something odd again Ye Lang dragged his chair far away from her. Once he was sure they were a safe distance apart, he focused on the auction once again.
What is he doing? Could he be interested in me? Thats why hes playing this weird game?
Hmmph, that would be very dumb if that was true!
The frigid girl looked at him in disgust, though she wasnt sure if she knew this teenager from the fox tribe.
If only she knew this was Ye Lang, then she wouldve smacked him to teach him a lesson!
This girl knew him, though they were not close
Li Yue, be my wife!
Go away, you idiot!
Ye Lang, Ill tell you one more time--- I dont like you and please stop being weird!
I like you, thats my business What has that got to do with you?
...Yep, this frigid girl was Li Yue. Once upon a time, due to a misunderstanding at a consultation with a fortune teller, Ye Lang attempted to court Li Yue for years. However, he then suddenly decided to stop and since then they never met.
Ye Lang wasnt intimidated by her, he was just too surprised to see this person after all these years.
Then again, it had been years and years. At least eight years! He could recognise her the moment they met because Li Yue had very unique eyes
Li Yues pupils were different from regular humans, hers were silver!
This was also one of the reasons why Ye Lang had such a huge reaction. The hall was dim and seeing two silver eyes staring at you wasnt the most pleasant experience.
Ye Lang decided to keep a safe distance from her just in case. He would be in deep trouble if she recognised him.
At the same time, Ye Lang realised the Tianji Armour he needed was well within his reach--- Li Yue was wearing the suit of armour!
Looks like the Li clan had passed their family heirloom to her. He wondered why they didnt give it to one of their elder grandsons instead, for example Li Yan, the guy who took Ye Langs Romantic Floor for himself.
Everyone who knew about this was puzzled too. It didnt make sense. Perhaps she was merely in charge of it for the moment!
At this point, Ye Lang had no plans to take the Li familys Tianji armour so he didnt care. He didnt make any attempts to take it from her.
In reality, he couldnt even if he wanted to. Only the owner of the armour can take it off him or herself. Even Ye Langs best alchemy tactics would not be able to pry the armour off her without her consent.
This was why Ye Lang did not even consider the Li familys Tianji armour as an option. Stealing was impossible, and if he showed up at their mansion asking to borrow it, it didnt even matter if the Li family would want to help Ye Lang--- the fact that he was currently a wanted criminal of the empire was enough for them to chase him out.
Fuck, how could they auction that?
After a couple of boring pieces, the auctioneer presented a very odd object, so odd even Ye Lang was puzzled.
It was a Guqin, a musical instrument Ye Lang had also once used. Hed placed it in the Romantic Floor as decoration. This Guqin was of great quality and had special alchemy formations on it, therefore it was valuable.
However, this was Ye Langs property. Why was it being auctioned off?
This has once been used by someone we all know but we cant name. We shall start with one thousand gold coins. Ye Lang was surprised an instrument he played would be priced at a thousand gold coins.
This Guqin was worth only a hundred gold coins, yet its starting bid was a thousand here. That would mean its final bid would be higher!
Was he really THAT famous? Damn! Yay!
