War Sovereign Soaring The Heavens Chapter 248
Duan Ling Tian’s gaze passed through the window in the room to descend onto the hand of the old man in the auction platform.
The old man held an extremely special medical grass in his hand.
Unlike an ordinary medicinal grass, this medicinal grass was completely silvery-white in color and flickered with a light sheen. With a glance, one would know that it wasn’t an ordinary medicinal grass.
In the hall, a wave of sounds of surprise sounded out as expected.
"It’s really the Silver Fire Grass!"
"I heard that when refining a medicine of grade six or below, so long this Silver Fire Grass is placed into the cauldron, it will be able to increase the purity by 10%!"
"This Silver Fire Grass is a treasure to an alchemist."
The old man on the auction platform lightly smiled. "Guests, it looks like all of you are well acquainted with the Silver Fire Grass. Exactly, the Silver Fire Grass is indeed capable of increasing the purity of a grade six medicinal pill or below, and it can increase the purity by at least 10%. If one’s luck I good, it’s even capable of increasing the purity by nearly 15%."
Increasing the purity of a grade six or below medicinal pill?
In the room, disdain appeared on the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth.
As far as he was concerned, this was only the most ordinary and widespread use of the Silver Fire Grass. It was difficult to fully express the worth of the Silver Fire Grass….
This Silver Fire Grass, in his hands, could become an ever successful weapon!
"Guests, the starting bid price for the Silver Fire Grass is 100,000 silver….Now, interested guests may bid!" the old man on the auction platform slowly said.
"100,000 silver!" At almost the exact moment the old man finished speaking, someone in the hall made a bid.
In a short moment, the price of the Silver Fire Grass rose steadily.
"Scoundrel, you’re interested in this Silver Fire Grass?" Li Fei glanced at Duan Ling Tian and blinked her beautiful eyes.
She noticed that Duan Ling Tian’s gaze hadn’t left the Silver Fire Grass at all.
"I’m determined to get this Silver Fire Grass." A trace of a smile appeared on the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth, and he nodded.
"Young Master, could it be that you want to use this Silver Fire Grass to refine medicinal pills?" Ke Er looked at Duan Ling Tian with a curious expression.
"Refine medicinal pills?" Duan Ling Tian shook his head. "Ke Er, the purity of the medicinal pills I refine are all at 90% or above, so there isn’t much difference if I add Silver Fire Grass or not….I want to obtain this Silver Fire Grass not to use it to refine a medicinal pills, but instead to use it to inscribe an inscription!"
The Silver Fire Grass was the core material for a formidable offensive inscription that Duan Ling Tian was able to inscribe currently.
That type of offensive inscription was also one of the most formidable inscriptions that Duan Ling Tian was able to inscribe currently, and it was extremely domineering!
Ke Er came to a sudden understanding and nodded, Li Fei understood as well.
Meanwhile, the bidding in the hall had slowed down.
The current price of the Silver Fire Grass was 900,000 silver….
The person that placed this bid was a fatty in luxurious clothing in the hall, and seeing that no one was continuing to bid with him, the fatty crossed his legs and a trace of complacence appeared on his face.
"1 million silver!" Right at this moment, a sonorous voice sounded out from a room on the second floor.
Causing the smile on the fatty’s face to freeze, he cursed as he said, "I don’t want it anymore!"
Duan Ling Tian’s gaze focused, as he understood that the guests in the second floor rooms were about to make their moves….
He wasn’t in a hurry to bid.
"1,100,000 silver!" A voice sounded out from another room.
In the end, these two people bid until the bid price of the Silver Fire Grass rose to 1,700,000 silver.
"The guest in room number 7 has placed a bid of 1,700,000 silver, are there any other guests that require it?" The old man on the auction platform slowly said, "1,700,000 silver going once, 1,700,000 silver going twice…."
"Two million!" Right at this moment, Duan Ling Tian spoke out. He was precisely waiting for the last moment to make his move.
For a moment, room number 7 went silent.
The hall burst into an uproar.
"Insane! It’s only a Silver Fire Grass, actually bidding until two million silver…."
"Exactly, the Silver Fire Grass can at most increase the purity of a batch of grade six medicinal pills. 1,700,000 silver is already a sky high price."
"We don’t understand the world of the rich."
Most of the people in the hall felt that the person who bid a price of two million silver was a sucker.
The old man on the auction platform didn’t expect that the Silver Fire Grass could be bid to a high price of two million silver either, and his face was slightly flushed red. "The guest in room number 1 has bid two million silver. Are there any other guests that want to bid a higher price? Two million going once….Two million going twice….Two million going thrice! Deal!"
"The Silver Fire Grass belongs to the guest in room number 1." In the end, Duan Ling Tian won the bid for the Silver Fire Grass.
Duan Ling Tian’s face revealed a smile.
In a short moment, the sound of door knocking resounded, and an attendant respectfully said, "Guest, the Silver Fire Grass you bid for has been sent over."
"Bring it in," Duan Ling Tian replied indifferently.
The room door was opened, Duan Ling Tian received the Silver Fire Grass, and at the same time paid two million silver.
A grass for two million silver, this was something unbelievable in the eyes of another, and it was difficult to understand for them….But as far as Duan Ling Tian was concerned, this two million silver was worth spending!
The Silver Fire Grass was the core material for the Blaze Inscription.
The Blaze Inscription was a formidable offensive inscription.
Once utilized, a martial artist below the Void Prying Stage would surely die without a doubt!
It would be impossible for even a Half-step Void Stage martial artist to escape with their lives.
How domineering the Blaze Inscription was could be easily imagined.
"Unfortunately….One Blaze Inscription requires a complete Silver Fire Grass as the core material." Duan Ling Tian now wished for nothing more than to use one Silver Fire Grass to inscribe many Blaze Inscriptions, but he knew that this was only his wishful thinking.
If it wasn’t inscribed with a complete Silver Fire Grass, then the might of the Blaze Inscription would decline greatly.
Even to the extent of even being inferior to the Bone Corrosion Inscription!
"I’m still too greedy." Duan Ling Tian shook his head and sighed in his heart. Being able to obtain one Silver Fire Grass and inscribe one Blaze Inscription could already be considered his good fortune.
Li Fei noticed the excited expression on Duan Ling Tian’s face and asked curiously, "Scoundrel, what inscription can this Silver Fire Grass inscribe?"
Ke Er looked at Duan Ling Tian as well.
Even Xiong Quan, although his current expression didn’t have any great change, his eyes revealed a sense of curiosity.
After following the Young Master for some time, he’d grown from the shock at the beginning to the current numbness.
The shocks that the Young Master brought him were too many!
Now he wouldn’t feel it to be strange if a miracle were to happen to the Young Master.
"The Blaze Inscription." Duan Ling Tian’s eyes squinted, then he spoke of the might of the Blaze Inscription….
"Able to annihilate any existence below the Void Prying Stage?" Li Fei and Ke Er’s delicate figures trembled, as they were both shocked. What a terrifying offensive inscription!
Fright appeared on Xiong Quan’s face as well.
Even though he was from a sect in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, a formidable offensive inscription that was able to annihilate any martial artist below the Void Prying Stage was something he’d heard of but had never once seen….
According to his knowledge, this type of inscription could only be inscribed by those heaven-defying inscription masters.
He suddenly felt that even now, his understanding of the Young Master was still a drop in the ocean and was not worth mentioning.
"Being able to obtain the Silver Fire Grass, my gains can be considered to be not bad." Duan Ling Tian smiled in satisfaction, and his gaze once again descended onto the auction platform in the hall. What was currently being auctioned on the auction platform wasn’t an item, it was a person, a robust man that was tied up in iron chains.
On the robust man’s face was a strange brand.
"Slave?" Duan Ling Tian’s brows rose, as he recognized this brand.
This brand was also present on Xiong Quan’s face.
However, the brand on Xiong Quan’s face was currently covered by his mask, and others were unable to notice it.
The robust man stood on the auction platform and swept the auction house’s hall with a cold gaze, causing the faces of many to go pale.
"Third level of the Nascent Soul Stage?" Relying on his formidable Spiritual Force and the experience of Rebirth Martial Emperor, Duan Ling Tian could vaguely identify the cultivation level of this robust man.
Meanwhile, the old man on the auction platform spoke. "Everyone, the person beside me is a slave with a cultivation at the third level of the Nascent Soul Stage….Everyone understands what slaves are, so I won’t introduce him any further. The starting bid is one million silver!"
"One million silver?" Duan Ling Tian watched the scene before him with a cold and indifferent gaze as if it didn’t have any relation to him.
Even after merging with the memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor, Duan Ling Tian wasn’t Rebirth Martial Emperor after all, so he had his own thoughts. Now, looking at the slave before him being bid on by others, his heart slowly went cold.
In this world where the strong were respected, a human’s life was lowly like grass and could be measured with money.
Only by becoming a true expert could he be able to protect himself and protect everyone beside him.
He knew that if he wanted to become a true expert, the road he had to take was still far….
"5 million silver!"
"6 million silver!"
The price of the third level Nascent Soul Stage slave rose steadily.
In the end, he was bought by someone for the high price of 8 million silver.
Subsequently, another few slaves were auctioned.
The strengths of the slaves that were auctioned later on increased.
The strongest was actually an existence at the sixth level of the Nascent Soul Stage, and he was bought by someone for the high price of 80 million silver.
Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but be astounded.
"These people spend so much money to buy these slaves; could it be that they aren’t afraid that these slaves would betray them?" It was slightly difficult for Li Fei to understand. As far as she was concerned, easily spending a few million silver or even a few tens of millions of silver to buy a slave that might betray you was too dangerous.
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled. "Little Fei, people who dare bid for these slaves ordinarily wouldn’t lack powerhouses by their side. So they aren’t afraid of these slaves betraying them….Since these people have been reduced to becoming slaves, it shows that they’re afraid of death. For the sake of living, they wouldn’t dare act rashly."
Li Fei nodded and then was absorbed in thought.
The following item wasn’t a slave anymore.
A young girl held a tray that was covered in red cloth as she walked up the auction platform.
And almost at that exact moment, the two little pythons that were inside Duan Ling Tian’s sleeve flashed out and descended before the window.
"Hiss hiss~" Little Black and Little White flicked their tongues, and their sharp eyes stared fixedly at the tray that was covered by the red cloth, as if they’d noticed something.
