Chapter 34: It Is Your Fault
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
After hearing Du Nanfeng and Du Wan’s words, Miao Yan would be a fool if he still did not understand what was going on.
With a livid expression, he stood up from his chair and pointed at Lin Mo.
The sight of Lin Mo made him even more furious. Perhaps they had worked together to set up this trap.
“I didn’t expect you guys to be so despicable. You set me up!”
Du Wan put on an innocent expression on his face.
“Young Master Miao, you raised the price. Nobody forced you. The transaction was consensual. How could you say that we set you up? We even have to regretfully give up the demonic beast.”
What Du Wan said almost caused Miao Yan to vomit up blood. He was unable to speak for a long time.
A tier four demonic beast for fifty thousand low-grade spirit stones. Miao Yan would probably be scolded once he returned home. This thought caused him to feel even more depressed.
Lin Mo gave his order and Wu Jin announced, “Young Master Miao, please pay up.”
Miao Yan clenched his fists tightly. He really wanted to just leave. His expression looked as if he was going to eat someone. It was quite scary.
This did not affect Du Wan at all. He pretended to be surprised and said, “Young Master Miao, are you thinking of going back on your words? Your family owns such a big auction house. Don’t tell me you actually can’t afford it?”
Miao Yan was helpless. No matter what, he had to fork out the spirit stones.
Otherwise, it would severely damage the Miao family’s reputation.
He forcefully suppressed his anger and said to his servant, “Go back and get the spirit stones for me.”
Wu Jin deliberately added, “Alright, I’ll wait here until Young Master Miao is ready to pay.”
Then, he sat down beside Miao Yan and acted as if he was worried the latter would runoff.
Miao Yan had never suffered such humiliation before. All he could do was grit his teeth. His plan to harm the Du family had backfired. In fact, his own family would suffer the loss.
The people around him subconsciously moved away. Everyone could see that Miao Yan was about to blow up at any moment.
Soon, the spirit stones were brought over in an interspatial ring.
Miao Yan viciously threw it at Wu Jin. His rage level had reached its peak.
“There, 50,000 low-grade spirit stones!”
Du Wan clapped his hands.
“Young Master Miao is indeed magnanimous.”
His compliment was nothing but sarcasm. Some people could not help but laugh out loud. At this moment, Miao Yan truly looked like a fool.
Simultaneously, the system notification sounded in Lin Mo’s mind.
[ Ding! The host has successfully auctioned a tier 4 top-grade winged python. ]
[ Successfully triggered 1,000 times return! ]
[ Obtained a tier 5 top-grade demonic beast, giant winged python! ]
Lin Mo felt a heavy burden lifted off his back. He had managed to fulfill his promise to others. Once he sent the giant winged python to the Du family, their transaction would be completed.
Lin Mo’s gaze shifted to Miao Yan. He had no plans to let the latter off easily. Besides, their relationship was already strained, so it did not matter if he offended him a little more.
“How would I know if there are 50,000 low-grade spirit stones in this ring?”
Miao Yan was so angry that his facial features became distorted. He asked in a low voice, “You dare to suspect me?”
His eyes were filled with killing intent. If there was no one around, he would have already launched an attack by now.
However, Lin Mo was not afraid at all. He shook his head and said, “I dare not, but 50,000 low-grade spirit stones is a lot. I have to be meticulous.”
Lin Mo intentionally emphasized the words “50,000 low-grade spirit stones” just to provoke Miao Yan even further.
Miao Yan’s gaze was dark. He was like a venomous snake. His facial expression was enough to instill fear in normal people.
“Enough. Don’t go too far. I will remember everything that has happened today. In the future, I will definitely repay you a hundred times over!”
Lin Mo did not take Miao Yan’s threat to heart. He merely smiled faintly and turned around to leave.
Miao Yan felt as if he was punched in the gut. Whenever he thought about the fifty thousand low-grade spirit stones, he could feel his heart bleed. Worse still, the people around were looking at him with either pitiful or mocking eyes.
He shouted viciously, “What are all of you looking at?!”
Everyone hurriedly withdrew their gazes. Of course, their inner thoughts were out of Miao Yan’s control.
“The third item up for auction is a giant black scythe. It’s a tier 4 middle-grade weapon. Starting price is 3,000 low-grade spirit stones!”
A giant black scythe appeared in the middle of the stage. It emanated an ominous black aura. The audience could also feel a chill down their spines. Clearly, the quality of this scythe was not bad.
Yet, most people had disappointed expressions on their faces. After all, the third item looked rather ordinary.
“It can’t be compared to the first two items, but it’s still good.”
“This auction has already surpassed the other two auctions.”
“That’s right. Which auction house’s tier 4 demonic beast can…”
The person who said that immediately realized he had misspoken. He quickly stopped talking. However, Miao Yan was already staring at him with his death-like gaze. The man was scared out of his wits.
As the saying goes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Wang Qing was delighted when he saw the black scythe. He liked its unique design. So, he opened his mouth and shouted, “4,000 low-grade spirit stones!”
“5,000 low-grade spirit stones!”
“6,000 low-grade spirit stones!”
