Nine Evolutions of the True Spirit Chapter 49 - Finale Items

Lu Ping never imagined that this flying chariot was actually symbolic to Xuan Ling Sect elite disciples. Its appearance elevated the auction atmosphere, drawing all kinds of malicious speculations on Xuan Ling Sect.

“I think it’s more likely that someone killed a Xuan Ling Sect disciple and stole his mystic instrument.”

“I think so too. Didn’t you hear what happened recently? Xuan Ling Sect accused our Zhen Ling Sect disciples for colluding with monsters and killing five of their disciples? I heard that one of the five was an elite disciple from a formidable clan. If you ask me, this mystic instrument is most likely his.”

“Doesn’t that mean Xuan Ling Sect was right in their accusations? No, that can’t be true. I say, it must have been a criminal that murdered him, then they fled here to auction off the mystic instrument.”

“Whatever the truth may be, it sure is delightful to see a flying chariot up for auction. No matter what, we have to buy this so we can shove it in their faces,” Room 12 said.

“My condolences to whoever consigned this item. Xuan Ling Sect will surely learn about this and make their own investigations,” Room 8’s Yu Qiulan speculated.

“Well then, this puts Multi-Treasure Pavilion’s policies to a test. Let’s see if they truly withhold their customer information and keep their mouths shut.”

“Multi-Treasure Pavilion will not fail to honor its reputation,” Shi Lingling chimed in from Room 10.

“That’s right.”

“True.”

“Indeed.”

The other rooms quickly agreed.

Manager Pang cleared his throat to stop the discussion, saying with a smile, “Ladies and gentlemen, there’s no need for speculation. Our Multi-Treasure Pavilion’s reputation is not given, but earned. Be assured, we will not disclose any information about the seller.”

“So let us resume the auction, shall we? This mid-grade flying chariot can contain a maximum of nine passengers and has moderate speed. It has good defensive capabilities and luxurious decorations on the inside with various facilities. This is the perfect mystic instrument for you and your friends should you seek to travel far distances or simply for a picnic.”

“The opening price is 500 and each incremental bid shall not be less than 20 spirit stones.”

Lu Ping was shocked at first, especially when the crowd connected the mystic instrument to the nameless island incident. Their speculations were just one step away from the complete truth.

But suddenly, the Zhen Ling Sect disciples began to protect the seller of the flying chariot mystic instrument, and even Bai Changchun and Yu Qiulan, who were definitely not on good terms, had worked together. They deliberately forced Manager Pang to promise that Multi-Treasure Pavilion would not disclose the seller’s information. Lu Ping now had a deeper understanding of the sect’s unity.

Many wealthy Zhen Ling Sect disciples were fond of the flying chariot. After all, it would be something to boast about for a Zhen Ling Sect disciple to possess a mystic instrument symbolic to the Xuan Ling Sect elite disciples.

The price for the mystic instrument quickly exceeded more than 700 spirit stones. In all fairness, Lu Ping never expected the price to go this high.

Lu Ping had seen Master Immortal Du’s large flying carrier mystic instrument that could seat dozens of passengers. He initially thought the flying chariot would be slightly more expensive than an ordinary flying mystic instrument. He never expected Multi-Treasure Pavilion to give it the same value as a high-grade mystic instrument.

Towards the end of the bidding, only Yu Qiulan and Room 3 were left competing. Room 3 raised the bid price to 800 spirit stones.

Yu Qiulan suddenly lost his temper and cursed, “Who’s the prick ruining my deal? Tell me your name!”

“Young Master Yu, what a temper. What’s the matter, do you own this auction house?” Unaffected by the outburst, Room 3 retorted loudly.

“Hohhh, I wondered who it was. So it’s you, Zhao Clan’s Zhao Liang. I heard your big sister is marrying a Xuan Ling Sect disciple from the Qiao Clan. What’s the matter, trying to buy a gift for your new master?” Yu Qiulan said sarcastically. “What a shame. I bid 850 spirit stones.”

“Hmph.” Zhao Liang was well aware he was disliked by the other clans because of his big sister’s marriage.

However, his future brother-in-law’s brother was killed by the monster race on a sect mission and their family suspected that matters weren’t so simple.

And it just so happened that his future brother-in-law’s brother had a Nimbus Flying Chariot. Hence, Zhao Liang was planning to buy and give it to his future brother-in-law so they could identify its former owner.

He didn’t want to get caught up with any conflicts. At the same time, because his identity was revealed, he knew it was impossible for him to win this auction. If he insisted on bidding, the other clans’ disciples would definitely work together to outbid him. By then, he would make even more enemies.

That said, he wasn’t willing to let the matter go without causing trouble for Yu Qiulan. He called out, “I’ll raise the bid to 900 spirit stones. Heh, Yu Qiulan, if you call for a thousand spirit stones, I, Zhao Liang, will withdraw from the bid.”

In fact, Zhao Liang already planned to give up when Yu Qiulan raised the bid to 800 spirit stones. The Zhao Clan wasn’t a strong clan within the Zhen Ling Sect and didn’t own a lot of spirit stones. Thus the clan had sought a marriage with Xuan Ling Sect.

Furthermore, he had already spent spirit stones in the previous bids—he still needed to save up the rest for the finale items later on. It was only wise that he withdrew now.

Yu Qiulan smirked. “Zhao Liang, what a low and petty trick. But you know what, a mere thousand spirit stones are still nothing to me. I will have this flying chariot for sure.”

Lu Ping was a little surprised to witness this. A thousand spirit stones were a great deal of wealth to many, but Yu Qiulan didn’t seem to care. From this alone, Lu Ping had a clearer impression on the power held by the big clans. He should take care when dealing with the Zhao Clan.

The following items were medicinal pellets for Late Blood Refining Realm cultivators such as Blood Stimulating Pellets and Blood Resilience Pellets, which were better than the usual Blood Essence Pellets. There were also medicinal pellets that Lu Ping was familiar with such as the Blood Solidifying Pellets and Blood Vigor Pellets.

Although Lu Ping didn’t lack medicinal pellets for his cultivation, it was always good to store some Blood Vigor Pellets.

Unfortunately, there were only a limited number of Blood Vigor Pellets despite the high demand, hence the competition for pellets was intense. In the end, Lu Ping spent 650 spirit stones for three bottles of Blood Vigor Pellets. On average, the cost for the pellets was relatively higher than usual.

Lu Ping had no choice but to spend another 960 spirit stones for six more bottles of Blood Solidifying Pellets. These medicinal pellets would serve as a backup should he run out of Blood Vigor Pellets in the future.

Other than that, the auction had many other types of pellets. Some were specialized for wound recovery, sealing energies, invisibility, detoxification, and also poison. Seeing these poison pellets really opened Lu Ping’s eyes.

Lu Ping bought some medicinal pellets according to his own needs and spent another thousand spirit stones for that. He was looking forward to becoming an alchemist even more now.

Six hours passed in the blink of an eye, and the auction was finally coming to an end. Manager Pang, who was still full of energy and without the slightest sign of fatigue, said loudly on the stage, “Ladies and gentlemen! We, the Multi-Treasure Pavilion, have prepared 5 finale items for this auction. You’ve already seen one of them, the Blood Condensing Pellet, so what will the second one be?”

Manager Pang paused, stopping short from revealing what it was as he ordered the servants to slowly bring the item onstage. The crowd’s attention was hooked.

Manager Pang looked at their curious eyes and smiled. Then, he abruptly lifted the red silk on the tray to reveal an exquisite belt lying securely on the tray.

The belt buckle was carefully carved with a picture of a Jade Jiao playing on a lake, with various exquisite animals adorning the sides.

The entire belt shone brightly, as if the carved images of the animals had come to life.

“Could this be…”
