Chapter 294 – A trap
“No, it’s useless for me as well. I possess the Ancient Divine Devil’s bloodline, and it has completely awakened. Following the improvement of my cultivation base, the innate movement skill and combat skill from the Ancient Divine Devil will awaken.”
Han Yan shook his head. He had a lot of advantages from his bloodline, so he wasn’t interested in this Heavenly Wings skill. Big Yellow didn’t need it either, as he already had the Wing of Light which allowed him to be fast as lightning. It was also something this Heavenly Wings skill couldn’t compare with.
Just as the Myriad Sword Sect and Shangguan Clan became silent for a short moment, Jiang Chen casually bid 200 million.
When the bid was made, no one could stay calm any longer. Many people were so shocked they jumped up from their seats. Countless eyes stared in Jiang Chen’s direction, and many of them felt like they were going to cough up some blood.
“Damn it, this Chen Jiang must purposely be causing trouble! He actually bid 200 million? Just how wealthy is he?”
“This guy didn’t bid once before this, but when a winner was decided between the Myriad Sword Sect and the Shangguan Clan, he immediately ramped the price up to 200 million. This is an insane number, I can barely even believe it!”
“Looks like something exciting is going to happen! Since Jiang Chen has offended both the Myriad Sword Sect and the Shangguan Clan, it looks like he is going all out to fight them all the way.”
Nobody could remain calm. Chen Jiang Chen was such an amazing man, an extremely daring one! Fighting head to head with superpowers like the Myriad Sword Sect and Shangguan Clan, putting aside everything else, just his courage alone is something no one could compare with.
Two massive energies erupted from the Myriad Sword Sect and the Shangguan Clan’s rooms, and it swept across the entire auction halls. Both energies carried extreme anger, especially the energy from the Shangguan Clan room.
However, right at this moment, another tremendous energy swept across the auction hall. This energy was even more powerful that the ones from the Myriad Sword Sect and Shangguan Clan. It instantly pushed down both energies.
“The auction is still ongoing, please control your emotions.”
A tyrannical voice sounded out. The voice belonged to Master Blissful. The entire auction was under his control; he would never allow anyone to cause trouble here.
“Little Chen, I thought you didn’t want this movement skill? Why are you bidding for it?”
Han Yan curiously looked at Jiang Chen.
“I am helping Master Blissful increase the price.”
Jiang Chen casually shrugged his shoulders. He still carried an indifferent expression on his face.
“Damn it, you are such a wicked man.”
Han Yan gazed at Jiang Chen, he immediately understood what Jiang Chen was trying to do. This guy wanted to ramp up the price, causing either the Myriad Sword Sect or Shangguan Clan to start bleeding. They had after all become his enemies, Jiang Chen didn’t need to be nice to them.
“Kaka! Buddy, I like your wickedness!”
Big Yellow let out a pleased laughter.
“Aren’t you worried they might give up once you ramp up the price?”
Han Yan said in a worried tone. After all, 200 million was not a small amount.
“Don’t worry, the Myriad Sword Sect and Shangguan Clan are both superpowers with an enormous amount of resources. 200 million is nothing to them.
Jiang Chen had a confident look on his face. He wanted to set a trap down for both superpowers. He would never be courteous toward his enemy. Furthermore, he was also helping the Blissful Manor by increasing the price, as they would be the ones to benefit the most from it.
Ye Xiao from the Myriad Sword Sect made a higher bid while gnashing his teeth in anger.
On the contrary, Shangguan Chong remained quiet after Ye Xiao made his bid. He wanted to see if Jiang Chen had the courage to continue bidding.
No one expected this, Jiang Chen actually increased his by another 40 million with no hesitation!
Ye Xiao was furious. It wasn’t difficult to imagine how angry Ye Xiao was right now. If Jiang Chen stood in front of him right now, Ye Xiao might just ignore all the rules and tear him into pieces.
This was clearly a provocation, a serious challenge to the Myriad Sword Sect’s dignity. It wasn’t just a slap to their face anymore.
Ye Xiao was really angry right now. But on the other side, Xu Neng was extremely happy; he was smiling with his mouth wide open. His old face looked like a blossoming flower. At this point of time, he really wished he could run to Jiang Chen and call him father.
“Elder, should we increase the bid? The Heavenly Wings is a High-Ranked Earth Movement Skill, it’s a really rare and precious skill.”
A young disciple from the Shangguan Clan asked.
“No, we don’t want it anymore, let that Ye Xiao play with that kid. I have no idea what Chen Jiang’s background is. Let’s just sit back and watch for now; definite death awaits him when the auction ends.”
Shangguan Chong didn’t hide the anger on his face. Since Ye Xiao and Chen Jiang was in an intense bidding war, it was better for him to sit back and watch.
“Brother Chen Jiang is indeed a wealthy man, he just increased the bid to 250 million. Are there anyone else who wishes to bid higher?”
Xu Neng shouted, his head pointing toward the Myriad Sword Sect’s room.
Ye Xiao once again increased his bid. From his voice, everyone could clearly feel that he was on the verge of going berserk.
But, right after Ye Xiao bid, Jiang Chen immediately increased it to 300 million.
A dull, reverberating sound could be heard from the Myriad Sword Sect’s private room. Without looking at what actually happened, everyone knew that it must be the sound of Ye Xiao destroying a table with his palm.
“Damn it, 300 million!! What kind of hatred does this Chen Jiang have for the Myriad Sword Sect?”
“This is a sky-high bid! I wonder, will the Myriad Sword Sect bid again?”
“This is insane, they are fucking rich! This amount of wealth could make daddy piss my pants!”
Everyone were shocked. No one had expected this enormous bid. Chen Jiang was simply amazing. First, he had fought in a bidding war with the Shangguan Clan, and now it was the Myriad Sword Sect.
Within the Myriad Sword Sect’s private room, Ye Xiao was so angry that it seemed like flames of fury were going to burst out from his eyes. The beard was trembling, and his sleeve was violently fluttering even though there was no wind. The solid wooden table in the private room was completely destroyed.
“Elder, this Chen Jiang is ridiculous, I don’t believe he has 300 million in wealth!”
The female disciple who was slapped by Han Yan said with a gruesome voice.
“I think that bastard is purposely increasing the bid, he is trying to make us suffer losses so that we become a laughingstock.”
Lin Anying said while gnashing his teeth in anger.
“Humph! Trying to play with me? That kid is too young! Since you want to play, I’ll play! The actual value of the Heavenly Wings skill is at most 200 million, I want him to pay the price himself!”
Ye Xiao coldly harrumphed. A ferocious expression could be seen on his face.
This time, Ye Xiao bid with a calm voice. He increased the bid by another 100 million, ramping the price of the Heavenly Wings skill up into an enormous amount. Ye Xiao had made up his mind, after Jiang Chen made his next bid, he wouldn’t bid again. He was giving up the Heavenly Wings skill to Jiang Chen, causing Jiang Chen to have to pay 400 million for it. At that point of time, he would be jumping into a hole that was dug by himself.
“The fuck?! 400 million?! Will the price increase more?”
“This is a rare scene! With this alone, my trip to the Blissful Island has paid for itself.”
What happened brought yet another storm to the entire audience. Just as everyone were waiting for Jiang Chen to make another bid, the private room he was in had become completely silent.
“What happened? Don’t tell me Chen Jiang is giving up?”
“I think he’s hesitating. After all, the bid has gone up to 400 million.”
Right at this moment, every single person was staring at the third private room, but no voice was coming out from Jiang Chen. Now, every single person from the Myriad Sword Sect became extremely nervous. If Chen Jiang stopped bidding, the seemingly clever bid from them would turn out to be a foolish one instead, and they would be the ones to jump into the hole.
“Haha, congratulations to the Myriad Sword Sect, you’ve bought the Heavenly Wings skill for 400 million! It’s really worth the price, congratulations!”
A loud laughter burst out from Jiang Chen. His words stunned many people, and Ye Xiao stagger, he almost fell down onto the ground.
“What the fuck?”
“I finally understand, this Chen Jiang was clearly setting the Myriad Sword Sect up, he purposely increased the bid even though he never wanted this movement skill! The Myriad Sword Sect has fallen hard this time.”
“Wicked, extremely wicked! Where did this Chen Jiang come from? He’s like one of those super existences from the big sects!”
At this point of time, even an idiot could see what happened. The Myriad Sword Sect was fooled by Jiang Chen. The reason Ye Xiao made the 400 million bid was to set Jiang Chen up, but in the end, he was the one who suffered from the trap. He walked himself into trouble.
Within the Myriad Sword Sect’s private room, Lin Anying and the other disciples stood there quietly. They knew how angry Ye Xiao was right now. If his fury could turn into real flames, the entire auction hall might just be burned down.
“Good, Chen Jiang, good! I’ll remember this, once the auction comes to an end, I’ll make sure you regret still being alive!”
Ye Xiao was gnashing his teeth so tightly that crunching sounds could be heard. It was really difficult for him to accept what just happened.
“Haha, congratulations Myriad Sword Sect, for obtaining the Heavenly Wings movement skill! That’s really good for you!”
Xu Neng burst into laughter. He placed the scroll on a golden place, then handed it to Xiao Wei who stood next to him. After that, Xiao Wei carried the golden plate and walked toward the Myriad Sword Sect’s private room.
“Wakaka! Fun, this is so fun! Buddy, you truly are a wicked man!”
Big Yellow was bouncing up and down within the private room. His impression toward the Myriad Sword Sect was not good, and he just had a conflict with the disciples from the Myriad Sword Sect yesterday because of the Flaming Stallion.
“Little Chen, why did you stop increasing the bid?”
Han Yan asked with a smile on his face..
“If I increased it one more time, I would be walking myself into trouble. The 400 million bid was just perfect.”
Jiang Chen casually shrugged his shoulders. Ye Xiao’s heart must be bleeding right now.
As for Shangguan Chong, he felt relieved now, and he even felt delighted. But, he still detested Chen Jiang. Because of what he did today, he wouldn’t be able to leave this place alive once the auction ended.
After the Heavenly Wings movement skill was auction away, Jiang Chen didn’t make any bids for the next couple of items, but the other private rooms on the second floor were fighting intensely. Even the Shangguan Clan had made two bids. As for the Myriad Sword Sect, they were completely silent, and they hadn’t made a single bid. Ye Xiao was still extremely furious.
According to Jiang Chen’s estimation, the Myriad Sword Sect must be waiting for the auction’s finaly item. Unless they found something they really wanted, they wouldn’t make any bids.
Right at this moment, Xu Neng took out a rock the size of a human’s head. It was pitch black rock, and it was glowing in a dark light. It gave an eerie feeling to those who looked at it.
