AST 2455 - Immortal Jade Cauldron, He Fan, He Clan
When Qing Shui saw that lady, he was also stunned. She wasn\'t the type who had a baby face and huge breasts. Her face was exquisite and appeared very small and pure relative to her great figure. However, Qing Shui could sense a mysterious power coming from her body.
At first glance, Qing Shui sensed that this lady\'s strength was mediocre. Moreover, she was an auctioneer there. She was dressed very casually in an extremely short dress and a layer of thin veil draped on the outside. Her snow-white slender legs were faintly discernible, emitting an alluring charm.
Qing Shui\'s Spiritual Sense was very special. With that, in addition to his unique spirit energy, he discovered that she wasn\'t that simple. Her pitch-black eyes, that were like stars and gemstones, were filled with a mysterious charm. The faint smile on her face could tug at everyone\'s emotions. Both men and women included would be affected by her.
"Welcome, everyone, to the Divine Grade Auction Hall. We won\'t talk too much and waste your time. As usual, the auction shall begin. The highest bidder will win. We\'ll present our first treasure," The man smiled and said without delay.
A female from the staff brought something that looked like a tray that was covered in red cloth. Although the item wasn\'t big, no one knew what it was.
The surroundings were very quiet. Everyone stared as the red tray moved. Of course, some of the gazes were still on that stunning lady.
The lady removed the red cloth, revealing a small golden cauldron. At this moment, the lady said, "This is the Immortal Jade Cauldron. If it’s used for drinking wine or other medicine, it can increase the effects by one to three fold. The auction now starts. The seller wishes to get weapons or medicinal pills."
The lady\'s voice was very charming and crisp. It was an enjoyment to just listen to the voice that sounded like a celestial melody. This was why many people wanted beauties. Beautiful ladies could make one feel pleasant, react fast, and feel light-hearted.
Qing Shui looked at the Immortal Jade Cauldron. Its effects were exaggerated. If water was placed inside, it certainly would have its effects increased by three folds. However, if wine or other medicinal pills were placed inside instead, their effects would only increase by one fold. However, it was true that this thing was quite good and could definitely be considered a treasure. Despite so, its size was too small and thus there were more restrictions. Most importantly, the things placed inside must be left there for three months to achieve the said effect.
If a medicinal pill was placed inside, it was one thing for it to turn out to be a greater version. But if a cup of wine was placed inside for three months, wouldn\'t it be too disgusting to drink it…?
Many people\'s back were straightened. The greatest value of the item was that it could increase the quality of medicinal pills. Drinking wine and other things were secondary. Therefore, there were still quite a number of people who were interested in this Immortal Jade Cauldron.
"One Whitemoon Fruit!" Someone called out.
The Whitemoon Fruit was a heavenly and earthly treasure in the Nine Moons Domain. It was something that could only be found in the White Moon Valley白月山谷才, which got its name from the white moon in the sky. The Whitemoon Fruit was extremely rare and although it couldn\'t bring back a person back to life or allow one to regrow one\'s flesh, it still had an amazing effect of curing internal injuries. It could instantly recover internal injuries, even if they were very serious. Moreover, it could also increase the user\'s strength by 20% for two hours.
This ability was also why the Whitemoon Fruit was so valuable. In a battle to the death between two people, if one party were to suffer from very serious injuries and then suddenly recovered while gaining a 20% increase in strength, it would be clear how the battle would end up. Moreover, as long as the person was still alive, they would be able to recover any and all wounds. This was possible, even if their bones were broken and their internal organs had shattered. Its powerful regenerative ability was the reason why the Whitemoon Fruit could become a miraculous medicine.
Its value wouldn\'t lose out to the medicine that could bring people back to life or regrow their flesh. That process needed time. Moreover, during a battle, this medicine would be a far cry from the Whitemoon Fruit.
"A Whitemoon Fruit, huh. That\'s really generous."
"One Cicada Sword!"
The value of this item surpassed that of the Cicada Sword, and thus it became the winning bid.
During the auction, after an item had been brought up for bidding, it would be placed on the table at the front. The table was a unique jade table and could reflect the information and appearance of the items. If the seller felt that the item\'s value was high, they could place the item on the table.
There were estimated values for the items, but more often than not, it would depend on what the seller needed or had taken an interest in.
"Two Wondrous Fruits." Qing Shui brought two Wondrous Fruits to the front.
"What big All Aspect Fruits. How lavish," Someone exclaimed.
The Wondrous Fruit had many names, including the Potential Fruit and the All Aspect Fruit. They were considered to be good things and could be used in medicine. It could also directly increase a person\'s aptitude and potential in cultivation.
The two Wondrous Fruits were now placed on the higher end of the jade table. Qing Shui had a use for the Immortal Jade Cauldron. He wasn\'t planning on increasing the quality of medicine or wine through it. Qing Shui had the Treasure Basin for that already and it was impossible for the quality of most items to be raised unconditionally non-stop. The Immortal Jade Cauldron clashed with the Treasure Basin. After an item had been improved by the Treasure Basin, it would be impossible to raise its quality again by using the Immortal Jade Cauldron. Using the Treasure Basin to increase an item\'s quality involved risks, and the item could disappear or turn into something else.
"Kid, if you know what\'s good for you, take back your two fruits," suddenly, a voice rang out.
Qing Shui frowned and looked in that direction. The person who spoke was someone\'s follower and was very young. His bright eyes looked at Qing Shui with a hint of craftiness, as if he were bent on taking advantage of Qing Shui.
Frowning slightly, Qing Shui looked at the man on the seat. The person who spoke earlier could only be considered a lackey.
The man was very young, handsome, and had a unique disposition. He had a beautiful lady next to him. She was mature, dignified, and curvy, like a mature peach. It was as if juice would flow out with just the slightest touch.
The man didn\'t look at Qing Shui and only smiled as he took the lady\'s hand very naturally. He didn\'t seem abrupt or offensive, and other people didn\'t find it awkward either.
Qing Shui pulled back his gaze.
"That\'s He Fan from the City Lord Manor. Who is the other young man? To think that he would dare to fight for a bidding against He Fan. He\'s going to get the worst of it."
"That\'s right. Although He Fan wouldn\'t kick up too much fuss here, he\'ll definitely not let that young man off."
"Young Master Shao, please don\'t violate the rules. Your right to bid will be canceled," the lady on the stage suddenly said. Her pleasant-sounding voice made her words unquestionable.
He Fan smiled and looked at the lady, "Miss Li, please excuse us. Alright, I won\'t bid this time around."
In the end, the Immortal Jade Cauldron ended up in Qing Shui\'s hands.
Qing Shui could sense the gazes from the group earlier. The gazes implied they were looking at a dead man.
He Fan was the dominator in the Mortal City. That mortal from back then had belonged to the He Clan, and they were the ones to call the shots in the Mortal City. However, when Qing Shui saw that the stunner Miss Li could actually restrain He Fan without him blowing his top, he felt a little gloomy. If this lady merely had great beauty, He Fan would surely have taken her for his own. This meant that there was only one other reason—she was a prickly person. What Qing Shui gleaned with his Spiritual Sense earlier should be right.
What was this lady\'s background? What was the Divine Grade Auction Hall\'s background? If this lady could suppress the He Clan, then why was it said that the He Clan was the strongest existence in the Mortal City?
