Chapter 22: Miao Yans Provocation
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Most people that attended from the four great clans were the younger generation. The only older person was probably Butler Zhang from the royal family. They could not help but be intrigued by this auction.
After all, not just anyone could promise tier five resources. Lin Mos sudden appearance also attracted a portion of people. After discovering that it was only his first day in the city, they became even more curious.
It was the main reason why the members of the four great clans sent their juniors to check on the situation.
The number of people who attended was not small. Even the crowd back in Chxin Village was no competition. It was also the first time Wu Jin had seen such a huge crowd. This made him a little nervous.
On the other hand, Lin Mo was completely composed. After looking at him, Wu Jin managed to calm down.
Wu Jin looked around and saw Du Wan. He immediately revealed a surprised expression.
“He was the one who saw the lookout fish on the street.”
Lin Mo also turned his attention to Du Wan. The latter looked rather ordinary.
The Du Family should be the ones who were good at raising demonic beasts. Otherwise, only strong people or those with special abilities could spot the lookout fish.

Du Wan definitely belonged to either category.
Upon seeing that most of the guests had arrived, Lin Mo signaled for the door to be closed. As Wu Jin went up on stage, the crowd settled down.
“Thank you all for coming. There are a total of two items up for auction this time.”
When they heard Wu Jins words, the crowd burst into an uproar.
“What! Only two items Thats too little, isnt it”
“How shabby. The royal auction house would have at least 5 items that are tier 4 and above.”
Many people looked disappointed. They lost their confidence in Lin Mo and did not want to waste their time any further.
“This was a wasted trip. If I had known earlier, I would have gone to other auction houses. The owner claims to have tier 5 resources, but even that might be a lie.”
“Yea, I even heard that he had a connection with the royal auction house. If thats true, why would things turn out to be so disappointing Weve been fooled.”
Many people were angry. They turned around and took off. In a blink of an eye, at least half of the seats in the auction house became empty.
Those who stayed were in the mood to watch the show.
“Well, I have nothing to do anyway. Ill see if there are any actual tier 5 resources. If not, I can just leave later.”
Wu Jin was anxious, but his expression did not change. This was something that he had learned from Lin Mo.
In fact, Lin Mo had already predicted such an occurrence. So, he had warned Wu Jin beforehand.
“The first item up for auction is a tier 5 low-grade Cross Blade. Starting price is 6,000 low-grade spirit stones!”
After Wu Jin announced that, an attendant walked out with a tray and lifted the velvet cloth on it. There was a cold glint as though a crescent moon had appeared before everyones eyes. One could even see their own reflection on the blade.
Everyones eyes lit up.
“Thats a good blade!”
The aura emitted by the Cross Blade confirmed that it was a genuine tier five weapon. There was no way it could be fake.
Originally, Miao Yan had an indifferent expression on his face. Once he saw the blade, that completely changed. An undetectable dark light flashed across his eyes.
Most items that were auctioned in other auction houses were more or less the same. However, Lin Mo appeared out of thin air and presented something different.
Naturally, it attracted a lot of peoples attention.
“I never expected there to be an actual tier 5 weapon in this auction. If it was sold at the royal familys auction house, the starting price would be at least 10,000 low-grade spirit stones.”
The remaining audience was ecstatic. Since the price was not too high and there were not as many people as before, they might actually have a chance to compete.
“7,000 low-grade spirit stones!”
“7,500 low-grade spirit stones!”
People began bidding.
Wang Qing could not help but sigh.
“That blade is made from the best black iron and its extremely sharp. Its also indestructible. Unfortunately, the craftsmanship is a little lacking.”
However, that did not affect the power of the Cross Blade and Wang Qing was determined to obtain it.
“11,000 low-grade spirit stones!”
Following his bid, the entire venue fell silent. After all, he was from the Wang family and they had a lot of assets. There was no way an ordinary person could compete.
On the other hand, the members from other families were not as keen on the Cross Blade. After all, their own equipment was on par if not better. As for the Huang sisters, they did not use such weapons.
Wang Qings bid was the highest. The blade was sold to him for eleven thousand low-grade spirit stones.
“The second item up for auction is a tier 5 top-grade Chaos Pill. Starting bid…”
Before Wu Jin could finish his words, Miao Yan stood up from his seat. He said mockingly, “I thought it was something worthwhile, but its just a Chaos Pill. Such an item is so common and ordinary.”
Due to his words, the previously lively atmosphere turned cold. Everyone looked at each other in dismay.
“Although what he said was a little exaggerated, its more or less the truth. In the Miao familys auction house, you can see a tier 5 top-grade medicinal herb or pill every couple of months.”
Miao Yans provocation made Wu Jin angry. He clenched his teeth. Even if he knew that Miao Yan was here to cause trouble, there was nothing he could do. Helpless, he could only say, “Starting price is 6,000 low-grade spirit stones.”
