That's right. Mo Mo had caused the disturbance under Xiang Shaoyun's order. Otherwise, he wouldn't have obtained the headband so easily. This headband was too important for him. He had to obtain it regardless of price. For him to actually get it so easily was quite a pleasant surprise.
At this time, the people who had bought something from the auction started lining up to complete the transaction. Xiang Shaoyun let others go first and was the last to walk over. He found that two other people were standing at the side. They were facing a different direction, not daring to look at him.
Xiang Shaoyun couldn't help but laugh before asking, "Young masters of Wen Clan, what are you doing standing here?"
"Hmph. They sure are gutsy to place bids without having the money to back it up. If it wasn't out of respect for Wen Clan, we would have killed them immediately," said someone coldly.
"We have only forgotten the money. Don't worry, my father will come with the spirit crystals soon!" Wen Jinrui replied gloomily.
"Haha, you don't even have a few thousand spirit crystals on you, and you dare to place bids here? This is enlightening to see!" Xiang Shaoyun roared with laughter.
He only planned to annoy the Wen Clan brothers for a bit. Little did he expect that they were so special, coming to the auction without enough spirit crystals on them. He felt really good when he saw them suffering like this.
The Wen Clan brothers couldn't even offer a retort. They could only glare at Xiang Shaoyun furiously, hoping that with their gazes alone they could pierce Xiang Shaoyun's heart 10,000 times.
Xiang Shaoyun proceeded to add salt to the wound and said, "Do you want me to pay for you? Just return me double of what I paid as interest later."
The brothers were so angry they nearly vomited blood. This person was truly hateful to be sneering at them like this.
Xiang Shaoyun ignored them and took out a large pile of spirit crystals to pay for the items he bought. He had spent over 10,000 spirit crystals in total. In the eyes of many people, that was a large sum of money. Even some King Realm cultivators were poorer than him. It caused the Wen Clan brothers to be filled with envy.
An auctioneer stepped forth and smiled, "How should I address this young master?"
Xiang Shaoyun replied, "I am Overlord Xiang."
"Overlord Xiang? What a fine name! What an ingenious name!" The auctioneer smiled. He paused for a bit and said, "This is a VIP card. In the future, whenever you participate in our auction, you will be entitled to a VIP room. We can also help search for all the items you need on your behalf. If the items you employ us to purchase are valuable enough, we can even give you a special discount on the fees!"
Hearing that filled the Wen Clan brothers with even more envy. The VIP card was not something anyone could get. Generally, the card was only issued to people of powerful organizations and King Realm experts who had made their own name. Other people would not be able to get one so easily. The main reason this auctioneer offered Xiang Shaoyun the card was because they had already done an investigation on Xiang Shaoyun.
According to their investigation, Xiang Shaoyun had emperor-grade materials in his possession and had traded with the Cloud Margin Forging Pavilion before. That alone was enough to earn the respect of the auctioneer.
Moreover, when Xiang Shaoyun was placing his bids, he was completely calm, uncaring even. That was a temperament a regular person would never have. That was why this auctioneer had decided to offer him a VIP card.
Xiang Shaoyun was not surprised at all. He calmly accepted the card and said, "Thank you."
"Young Master Xiang, as a holder of our VIP card, you can now hire our men to work as your security." The auctioneer asked, "Are you interested—"
Xiang Shaoyun was now the owner of the icesnow fruit, the coldstar stone, and the headband. Each of those items were something many people coveted. The moment he left the auction house, he would be tailed. That was why the auctioneer asked if he wanted security.
Xiang Shaoyun spoke before the auctioneer finished, "Thank you for the offer, but I won't be needing the security service."
After saying that, he put away the items he bought and left with Mo Mo. The auctioneer blanked out slightly before thinking to himself, Looks like this young master's identity is not simple at all.
The moment Xiang Shaoyun walked out the auction house with Mo Mo, he could sense several sharp gazes land on him. It was obvious these people were all looking at him like a lamb for slaughter. All of them wanted nothing more than to slaughter this fat lamb here.
However, not a single one of them dared to be the first to attack. After all, creating chaos in the city was prohibited. At this time, Xie Sanqian came rushing over on a flame wolf and blocked Xiang Shaoyun's path.
He pointed his spear at Xiang Shaoyun and shouted, "Hand over the coldstar stone!"
One had to admit that Xie Sanqian was truly too brazen. He was fearlessly committing robbery under broad daylight. But those who knew Xie Sanqian would know that he had always been a direct and straightforward person. Since he had the backing of a Cloud Margin Pavilion elder, not many people would offend him easily.
"Impudent!" Mo Mo stepped forth and berated. As a follower, she had to share Xiang Shaoyun's burden.
"Get out of my way!" Xie Sanqian shouted coldly.
Right after he shouted, his flame wolf pounced forward. The flame wolf was quick and violent, giving Mo Mo a sense of pressure she had never felt before. However, she had no reason to retreat. She drew out the tier-3 sword she had just gotten and stabbed forth, the power of her eighth-stage Transformation Realm erupting fully.
The flame wolf spat a clump of flame forward that collided with the sword energy, creating a loud explosion. Mo Mo was forced to retreat repeatedly and was nearly burnt by the flame.
Eighth-stage Great Demon! Mo Mo instantly cried out inwardly.
If the demonic beast wasn't at the same cultivation level as her, it wouldn't have been able to force her into retreat so easily. Before she could react, the flame wolf streaked forth again and clawed at her with its sharp claws. Mo Mo waved her sword around repeatedly yet wasn't able to deal any damage to the flame wolf. Instead, she was forced to roll away to avoid the incoming attack.
"Mo Mo, come back," Xiang Shaoyun said.
Xie Sanqian stopped the wolf from attacking and looked at Xiang Shaoyun coldly. "If you know what's good for you, hand over the coldstar stone. Or else, you won't be able to leave this place!"
Before Xiang Shaoyun could say anything, Ye Xuan's voice rang out, "I want the coldstar stone as well."
Xie Sanqian shot Ye Xuan a glance and said, "Ye Xuan, don’t come out and humiliate yourself!"
"Nobody is humiliating himself. A battle is all that is needed to reveal everything," answered Ye Xuan calmly.
"So you both want the coldstar stone? Anyone else?" Xiang Shaoyun asked as he gazed at the few others who were eying him from not far away. He was still as calm as ever.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
