Chapter 1154: Nine Revolutions Soul Return Elixir (4)
The moment Long Yue finished his speech, everyone suddenly recalled that Grand Tutor Xing Hun’s birthday was in just a few days’ time. No wonder Long Yue would have gone all out to bid for the Nine Revolutions Soul Return Elixir. It was for a present for the Grand Tutor.
Ji Fengyan gazed down at Long Yue, but was in no hurry to reply. She just turned around to look at a stunned Long Xi.
“Your brother is rather crafty.”
“What?” Long Xi had yet to recover his senses from that twenty million bid.
Ji Fengyan chuckled. “I continued bidding against him even though I knew he was the second prince. Now he has brought out the name of the Grand Tutor to suppress me. Isn’t he trying to force me to back off?”
Only after Ji Fengyan pointed it out that Long Xi realized the subtle pressure underlying Long Yue’s words.
Who would dare go against Sa Er’s second prince and Grand Tutor just over a Nine Revolutions Soul Return Elixir?
“Do you think… I should give in?” Ji Fengyan suddenly asked Long Xi.
Long Xi opened his mouth, but no words came out.
Ji Fengyan smiled.
The entire auction was silent after Long Yue’s statement. Some color returned to his face as he prepared to speak again to secure the ownership of the Nine Revolutions Soul Return Elixir. However, that feminine voice once again rang out.
“Second prince, if you truly wish to present the Nine Revolutions Soul Return Elixir to the Grand Tutor, then you should show some sincerity. There are rules in the Xinyue Auction House—as customers, how can we presume to break those rules as and when we please? If the Second Prince offers another bid, I will not outbid you to comply with your wishes.” Every word was spoken clearly in a voice laced with amusement.
But those words caused further humiliation to Long Yue.
Would he have needed to bring out the name of the Grand Tutor if he could take out twenty million gold pieces in the first place?
He had wanted to force his opponent’s hand, but ended up digging his own grave.
There was no way he could fork out twenty million gold pieces. But not only had his opponent managed to avoid offending the name of the Grand Tutor and appear gracious in giving way, she had put him in the tough spot now.
She had already promised not to outbid him again if he offered another bid. But how on earth was Long Yue going to find the money for another bid?
It was like there was no difference in whether or not she gave way to him.
Long Yue looked utterly grim.
In the end, Long Yue could only secretly grit his teeth as he forced out a smile. “Since the young miss so desires the Nine Revolutions Soul Return Elixir, then I will not snatch it away from you. Farewell.” Without waiting for any response, Long Yue left the Xinyue Auction House with a dark expression.
With Long Xi’s departure, ownership of the Nine Revolutions Soul Return Elixir landed in Ji Fengyan’s hands. The auction staff delivered the elixir to the private room, after which Ji Fengyan handed it over to Long Xi without any hesitation.
“Take it, go save your mother.” Ji Fengyan smiled.
Long Xi stared in wonder at Ji Fengyan. “How could I accept this? You spend twenty million gold pieces on this Nine Revolutions Soul Return Elixir. How could I…”
Ji Fengyan raised her hand to interrupt Long Xi.
“Consider this as a show of my sincerity towards our collaboration.”
Ji Fengyan could turn rocks into gold, and would never want for money. To her, a piece of gold did not differ from a piece of rock.
She had cultivated that auctioned item, and she didn’t feel she had lost anything.
