Mistress I was wrong

MIWW Chapter 42

The little guy inside the egg was completely unaware that it was being auctioned off at the moment, and it lay quietly inside the protective shield, allowing the price to be opened for bidding.

“The price starts at one thousand spirit stones, and every increase must not be less than one hundred.” The auctioneer, Xue Xin smiled.

As soon as the words fell, someone under the stage began to call for bids.

“Five thousand spirit stones.”

“Ten thousand Spirit Stones.”

Zhao Sanqi and his group just sat there, enjoying the free food and tea given away by Tianyun Pavilion, letting the people next to them raise their cards and call out prices, completely indifferent.

“Brother Zhao, don’t you guys want to have a dragon cub that can soar through the clouds and mist?”

Dongfang Wanyu couldn’t help but ask curiously when he saw that they were not participating at all.

Captain Mu turned around with a cheerful smile and asked, “Little sister Wanyu, you don’t think the auction is over just because you get it, do you?”

It was only considered their own if they could hold onto it and they, the Rosebud Mercenaries, were still very self-aware of this, in the entire Yundu City, there were countless people who dared to bark at them.

This time, they actually had no intention of coming, but since the Nangong family had sent an invitation, they made a casual visit as a way of giving face to the Nangong Family as well as Wanyu.

Dongfang Wanyu nodded her head, she understood, in fact, the position of the Rosebud Mercenaries could be seen from the arrangement of the location they were sitting, insignificant yet not to be overlooked in the heart of the Nangong Family.

“One hundred thousand spirit stones.”

The last price was directly shouted, one hundred thousand spirit stones, a price shouted from the leftmost private room on the second floor.

Xue Xin smiled slightly, “One hundred thousand spirit stones once.”

“One hundred thousand spirit stones twice.”

“One hundred thousand spirit stones-”

Suddenly one person on the third floor slightly lifted the curtain and raised his sign and called out, “150,000 spirit stones.”

Dongfang Wanyu had only had a little concept of spirit stones since she came out of the academy, 100,000 spirit stones if converted into gold coins, it was about a one to ten conversion equivalent so about one million gold coins.

Spirit Stones only became common with the promotion of the three major empires, but for some small, remote places, it was probably still more useful to use gold coins.

“One hundred and fifty thousand spirit stones once.”

“One hundred and fifty thousand spirit stones twice.”

“One hundred and fifty thousand spirit stones three times.”

As soon as Xue Xin finalized it, she smiled and congratulated, “Congratulations to the Sui family for winning this dragon egg, congratulations to Sui Second Master.”

Dongfang Wanyu raised his head to take a look at that Second Master Sui, dressed in an airy, simple dress pattern, with a medium to high temperament, but his appearance only looked like he was in his early twenties.

It was really hard to know where this second master’s title came from.

Zhao Sanqi saw her face filled with confusion, so he explained in a low voice, “Wanyu little sister you just arrived in Yundu City so you don’t understand. There are four major powers in the capital that should not be easily offended. One is the Nangong family of the Tianyun Pavilion, second is the head of the Rose House, but no one is sure what his origin is, third is this Sui family.”

Captain Mu gently glanced at Zhao Sanqi, he immediately shut up.

Dongfang Wanyu looked around at the servants standing around and immediately smiled, “These families are so huge, naturally they can’t be offended, Brother Zhao, let’s see what’s next to be auctioned off that will really open people’s eyes.”

Most of the servants in this place were at the Great Spiritualist level, and there were even higher level Spiritualists sitting around, it was feared that their every word and deed would be watched and listened to.

Afterward, everyone continued to drink tea and eat spiritual food.

“The next item up for auction is one of Mr. Zhongshan’s weapons, a female’s belt, so watch carefully.”

What was soon presented was an exquisite green glowing belt, the belt’s surface was all jade, but the inside was full of mystery, it was divided into many pieces and in each of these individual small pieces was space storages, which could be used to put some daily necessities.

No need for her elaborate too much about it, Xue Xin mentioned all the advantages and disadvantages of this object.

“Everyone please don’t underestimate this belt, this is an Earth-grade weapon made by Mr. Zhongshan, the inside of the belt conceals poison needles. You can look at the opposite side, there are a total of twelve compartments on the side, these compartments are all an individual space, and the built-in capacity is also very large, from the smallest to largest, it can hold many things. The only flaw is that this jade belt is probably only suitable for women.” Xue Xin finally said with a little regret.

The style of the jade belt was also very small, so it seemed that Mr. Zhongshan had made it for a specific type of woman in mind.

Zhao Sanqi immediately whispered as soon as he saw the object, “Wanyu girl, this is the item you want to buy at auction, right? To give your Ninth Sister? Or was it your Eighth Sister, why do I remember that you seem to have just a Ninth Brother?”

Dongfang Wanyu was very happy when she saw it. She did want to give it to Ninth Sister! A special item, with concealed weapons that was really made for Ninth Sister, with the poisoned needles inside, after Ninth Sister’s skills were practiced, staying alive shouldn’t be a problem. There was also the built-in space, just enough for her to put pills and such.

“Brother Zhao, it was a necessity to hide it from you, please forgive me.” Dongfang Wanyu saw that she couldn’t conceal it, so she simply didn’t lie, she was genuinely thinking of Zhao Sanqi as a friend, and she didn’t want to have a gap in trust in the future.

Zhao Sanqi slapped his head, he said, “When I saw that little brother was white and pure, as well as soft and weak, I didn’t think about it that way. The other party also had a delicate heart, easily seeing the feelings of fifth brother and sixth sister, she really did seem like a girl.

“Hey, I don’t blame you, it’s really my clumsy eyes as a big brother.” Zhao Sanqi smiled bitterly and shook his head, his mood lowered when he thought of his Fifth Brother and Sixth Sister.

Xue Xin smiled, “Mr. Zhongshan has given this item a very touching name – Entangled Love, the starting price is fifty thousand spirit stones, each time’s increase shall not be less than five thousand spirit stones, the bidding begins.”

“Weapons made by Mr. Zhongshan are usually fine quality, and this second lot has been auctioned off, I’m really looking forward to it more and more! The next lot is up.”

“Sixty thousand spirit stones.”

“One hundred thousand spirit stones.”

“All of Mr. Zhongshan’s weapons are unique, I must get this item, one hundred and fifty thousand.”

“Two hundred thousand.”

Dongfang Wanyu sat watching them fight with cold eyes, next to her, Zhao Sanqi looked at her, “The competition is so strong, Wanyu have you brought enough spirit stones?”

Dongfang Wanyu took a look around and sighed when she saw that everyone was looking over, “Who would have thought that Mr. Zhongshan’s work is so popular, it’s no one’s fault if it can’t be taken today.”

Just as they were talking, the asking price had risen from two hundred thousand to eight hundred thousand.

“Eight hundred thousand once.”

“Eight hundred thousand twice.”

Dongfang Wanyu held up a sign and lightly said, “One million spirit stones.”

Although this weapon was the work of Mr. Zhongshan, in the end, it still made for a woman to wear, the few bidding men looked at each other and thought it wasn’t worth it since it was likely to just be given to their family’s younger sisters to play with. Now hearing this price, they suddenly felt the price was a little high.

They all shook their heads and withdrew from the bidding.

Xue Xin saw it then continued, “One million calling once.”

“One million calling twice.”

“One million final call, deal.”

“Congratulations to the winner, the young lady from the Rose Mercenary Corps.”

A waitress came over and murmured a few words in Dongfang Wanyu’s ear, she nodded, “I’ll immediately go over.”

“Captain, Brother Zhao, I’ll go over there first.”

Zhao Sanqi asked after me, “Do you want me to accompany you?”

Dongfang Wanyu shook her head.

The waitress took her to a small hall in the middle of nowhere, and when she walked in, the hall door quickly closed.

Then the small door in the hall was opened from inside and an old woman came out.

“Little miss, I’ve brought you the spirit stones you asked for.”

Dongfang Wanyu looked through the valuables inside her space ring and took them all out and gave them to her.

“Aunt Mo, you can privately have these pills taken to Yuntian Pavilion to be appraised, they are all of good quality, and the price should be able to cover one million spirit stones. ”

Aunt Mo shook her head and refused, “Little Miss, I can’t take your things, if Miss finds out later, she will surely chastise me. ”

Dongfang Wanyu handed over the space ring, “To run an underground business is a big risk! How can you do that if you don’t have the funds, besides, there’s not much use for these things on me. These things were brought out from Death Valley, you must have one of your faceless men send it over, don’t let Yuntian Pavillion find any clues.”

After saying that, not caring if the other party accepted it or not, Dongfang Wanyu directly walked out.

When an auction was over, the platform on the stand immediately withdrew the item, and then another item was sent out.

Again, a shield enveloped it, as if it were a small formation, and no matter how the contents tossed around inside, they could not escape.

Dongfang Wanyu quickly sat back down, so quickly that nothing was noticeable. However, when she saw what was on the stand, a trace of apprehension flashed in her eyes. This third lot was actually a living medicinal plant, looking at the size and colour of its flowers. Dongfang Wanyu’s heart surged.

If Dongfang Minghui was here, she would be absolutely astonished, because this third lot was exactly the same as the love flower in her space ring. It was only missing the colour of love flower, and the flowers were more than twice as small.

It was not exactly the same looking closely, but it was still more similar than most plants, it couldn’t have been a coincidence.

“What is this?” Everyone was curious.

Can’t blame them for not having eyes to see, most of the people who have actually seen the Love Flower have turned into bones in the Valley of Death.

Dongfang Wanyu was lucky enough to be able to see the true face of the Love Flower because of Dongfang Minghui’s help.

She saw the Love Flower in the protective shield, it kept hitting the shield with its leaves since it was consciously hitting it, without stopping, it was obviously enlightened.

Xue Xin saw that everyone’s curiosity was piqued, and that’s why she explained without missing a beat, “The third auction item you see is a medicinal plant with intelligence, the one medicinal plant that we all dream. This plant, its name is Love Flower.”

The love flower was no stranger to everyone’s ears, which person wasn’t afraid of seeing the aura of death, that gadget was something that even a top rank Spiritual Sage had to worry about. It could lead to dire consequences if even they were attacked by the aura of death not to mention these ordinary spiritualists.

“It’s interesting to see a love flower that has opened its intelligence.” The Sui Second Young Master on the second floor suddenly lifted the bead curtain and applauded, “Xue Xin Auctioneer, I have a question I would like you to answer.”

Xue Xin’s smile remained unchanged, her manners complete, “Second Master, please ask.”

“I would like to ask, is this Love Flower of yours the one that opened its spiritual wisdom in Death Valley? How did you bring it back?”

It had to be said that this Sui Second Young Master’s questioning was a bit tricky, especially for such a stunning beauty.

Of course, the people next to him didn’t dare to call him out, everyone knew that the Sui family had sent a group of Spiritualists to Death Valley, but unfortunately no one returned.

Xue Xin smiled and shook her head, “Second Master, it’s not that Xue Xin doesn’t want to tell you the answer, but rather this enlightened love flower species is not the one from Death Valley, this is an artificial love flower seed that someone cultivated from its seeds.

“Wow, so that’s how it is.”

“Who’s so powerful to actually cultivate a love flower seed, let him cultivate one for me as well.”

“I’m telling you, that hellhole in Death Valley, you can’t get out once you go in, let alone bringing a love flower seed out.”

“I’ve heard that an older generation of my clan who had the privilege of seeing the Love Flower said that the Love Flower is always cunning and is the most treacherous of all the spirit plants. If anyone gets close it will release a cloud of smoke to disturb the mind.”

Everyone was mesmerized by the love flower.

Probably the only person in the room still intact from the love flower’s illusion was the one now drinking a cup of tea, quietly sipping it.

Dongfang Wanyu, watching the attitude of his crowd of people eager to try, became even more determined to become stronger. If bystanders knew about Ninth Sister bringing out the Love Flower from Death Valley, the consequences would be unimaginable. Fortunately, she has accomplished her goal today, if nothing else, the belt can be given to Ninth Sister as a gift for the New Student Competition.

“Everyone take it easy, if you have any doubts about the love flower you can bring them up to us, we can even identify them for you, regardless of whether this one is the Love Flower that was brought back from Death Valley or not, it has all the effects of the Love Flower, including – resisting the invasion of the Aura of Death.”

As soon as Xue Xin said that, the discussion grew even louder, and everyone shouted, “Alright, auctioneer Xue Xin you’d better hurry up with the auction, we can’t wait!”

The whole atmosphere was boiling, only the Rosebud Mercenaries, all of them were watching the good show, even if they were excited, they did not change their faces.

Dongfang Wanyu had to admire Tianyun Pavilion’s means of mobilizing the atmosphere to move people’s hearts, this large auction was just the beginning, and the price had already been raised to a million gold coins.

“The price starts at 100,000 spirit stones, with each increase of 10,000 starting from now.” As soon as Xue Xin finished speaking, the shouts from below immediately rose and fell.

The barking was also continuous.

But after being away for two days, Dongfang Wanyu felt like she missed Ninth Sister a bit, she would have been surprised if she was here and her face would be very vivid and active.

“Resisting the aura of death, this love flower seed really has this effect?” Zhao Sanchi, who was three beats slower than the others, suddenly asked.

Dongfang Wanyu laughed, “Brother Zhao, none of us have ever used it, so how do we know?”

“Right.”

“Regardless of what kind of enlightened medicinal plants, a fake love flower is already asking for five million spirit stones, we can’t afford it.” Captain Mu laughed loudly, and her laughter was brisk.

While they were talking, the bidding still continued, shouting from five million spirit stones to six million spirit stones.

“I only realized today that your Ninth Sister is actually very rich.” Qing Mo suddenly lamented in his soul sea.

Dongfang Wanyu pursed her lips and laughed lightly, indeed, only her silly Ninth Sister felt that she was a poor person who couldn’t even afford a high-grade spatial ring. No matter if it was the love flower seed or the golden thorn tree in her yard, or even the pills she had made with her own hands, if they were put on auction and called for a price, she could casually call out an astronomical price.

However, she believed Ninth Sister wouldn’t do that. Seeing her like that, she couldn’t bear but to feed her own belongings to those medicinal plants, how could she bear to give them up and auction off all her medicinal plants?

“Six million spirit stones once.”

“Six million spirit stones twice.”

“Six million spirit stones three times.”

Qing Mo said regretfully, “Actually, the Love Flower’s real auction price is probably more than that, the Nangong family…I don’t know what they want to do this time, auctioning off this kind of valuable thing, I reckon the finale behind it is the truly amazing thing.”

Dongfang Wanyu also felt a little sorry, just one artificially cultivated love flower seed cost six million spirit stones, if it was the real love flower, it could probably go for more than 100 million spirit stones, and then it would still be a mad rush to keep bidding up.

The next lot after the love flower, and the next lot after became even more stunning, and the price change is even more dramatic.

Dongfang Wanyu ignored it, and even Qing Mo in the Sea of Souls couldn’t help but sigh, “I think this time’s it’s going to be hard to come up with the treasure we’re looking for.”

“It’s not too late to see the last two before we say that.”

As soon as she said that, a red curtain rose up on the stands, making it impossible to see what was inside.

Everyone poked their heads in one by one not to being able to see the treasures inside directly through the red curtain.

Auctioneer Xue Xin smiled, “Looking at everyone’s eager looks, Xue Xin won’t hold out, please look at this second last auction item!”

As soon as the red curtain lifted, a beautiful man appeared in front of everyone, his skin was fair and crystal clear all over, his long light blue hair up to his heels covered the key parts of his body, his ears, however, were not like human ears, they were pointed and looked extraordinarily inviting, and a pair of pure pale green eyes stared at them in awe.

“It’s an Elf.” Qing Mo said in the Sea of Souls.

Dongfang Wanyu was slightly surprised, she had never seen anyone so beautiful before, this Elf Clan’s people were truly all beautiful creatures.

However, blatantly auctioning off the Elf Clan’s people, what did this Nangong family want to do?

“Oh God, it’s beautiful.”

“I want this demon, I want, I’m getting hard looking at him.”

The shouts of a large group of people penetrated the eardrums as Dongfang Wanyu watched the scene coldly.

She watched the elf shrink and tremble all over, but he couldn’t stop the humans’ greedy gaze.

When Xue Xin saw this, she immediately spoke, “The starting price is two hundred thousand spirit stones, and each call will be no less than fifty thousand spirit stones, begin.”

Zhao Sanchi also looked around coldly, the greedy and disgusting mouths of this group of people were deeply imprinted into his eyelids.

“The Tianyun Pavilion is truly great.” Captain Mu laughed coldly, this Elf was placed in the second last part of the auction, only to win the affection of some special people, but this sort of behavior was disgraceful to her.

Dongfang Wanyu also took a deep breath, she didn’t like this kind of auction either.

Suppose one day, humans were also in a weak position and their family members were put up for auction like objects, how would they feel?

In the end, the Elf was sold to one of the people sitting on the third floor for a whopping ten million spirit stones.

Everyone looked at each other, the people on the third floor were all respectable, sitting on three separate floors, one was Nangong Yuntian, the Young Master of the Tianyun Pavilion. The second was the mysterious owner of the Rose House, and the other one was the great wealthy owner of Snow City, Lu. It was rumored that the son of Elder Lu was particularly lustful and often did things to forcefully rob people’s women, but his family was rich and powerful, so even if Lu Peng was out there doing shameful things, that old man of his will always help wipe his little tail clean.

This time, the Lu family also got an invitation to the auction, this must be the Lu Master bringing his son over, and that Lu Peng saw that Elf, and had drool coming out so he had to make his old man buy the elf.

Dongfang Wanyu didn’t know yet that there was an old acquaintance on the third floor. They insisted on waiting until the last one even if they didn’t care for such tactics, which was also the finale of this huge auction.

Xue Xin took a deep breath as she smiled at the crowd, waiting for the booth to channel the items over.

“I’m sure you’ve guessed that the recent grand finale is Mr. Zhongshan’s masterpiece, Blood Soul Blade.”

Dongfang Wanyu didn’t know anything about blades, but she saw that Captain Mu’s eyes were opened wide, and not only her, but all the people of the Rosebud Mercenary Group were carefully looking at the stand.

As soon as the red curtain opened, a cold weapon appeared in everyone’s eyes, it was featureless and looked just like a worn-out large blade.

Dongfang Wanyu wisely chose to keep her mouth shut, but Qing Mo in the Sea of Souls tsked, “No wonder this weapon is at the end and it became the final auction item.”

“What’s so special about it?”

Qing Mo knew that she had always used a long whip and a sword but had never really paid attention to the sword, so he patiently explained to her, “I’ve heard of Mr. Zhongshan’s name! He may have only produced one work in decades, but for this blade, I guess he spent a lot of money. Almost thirty years ago, this knife had birthed a soul and needed to choose its owner, if it’s not someone it recognizes, don’t even think about touching it.”

It was the first time Dongfang Wanyu had ever heard of a blade having a soul and actively choosing its owner. Wouldn’t the auction item be useless even if they were auctioned?”

“Right. But I believe that since Mr. Zhongshan has put it up for auction, he must not want it to fetch an astronomical price, but rather he hopes that it will find someone who is fortunate enough to have it!”

As soon as Qing Mo’s side of the story fell, Xue Xin explained the rules of the last auction item to everyone.

“The rules for this last auction item are different from the previous one, this item already has intelligence, you can all come up and try, whoever can pick it up, is the owner of the Blood Soul Blade.”

There’s still such a good thing?

The entire audience was boiling, but Dongfang Wanyu encouraged Captain Mu, “In that case, whoever likes can go on the field, Captain, you should go up there later to try it out.”

Captain Mu slapped her palm and said, “For sure.”

“Being able to see the Blood Soul Blade, today’s trip was worthwhile.”

Since the auctioneer Xue Xin had said that everyone could go up on stage and try it, there were soon people impatiently jumping on stage, rubbing their fists and running up, rubbing their hands and holding the hilt of the Blood Soul Knife.

One, two, three, up.

The knife was motionless as if it were a rock, unmoving.

“Hey, I really don’t believe I can’t lift you.” The man crossed his legs and stomped on one leg, unable to shake the Blood Soul Blade by half an inch with all his strength.

Xue Xin saw this and smiled, “I’m sorry, Blood Soul Blade didn’t choose you, next please.”

A small queue had formed on the stage, and everyone was putting in their best effort.

Dongfang Wanyu saw that Captain Mu was also on stage, and said to Zhao Sanchi, “I see that Head Mu truly loves the blade, if you move the Blood Soul Blade with your heart, it’s not impossible.”

People beside them bared their noses at this and laughed at Dongfang Wanyu’s exaggerations.

“Wanyu, the Blood Soul Blade already has a spirit, it must see blood to feel satisfied.” Qing Mo prompted.

Dongfang Wanyu immediately whispered in Zhao Sanchi’s ear, and Zhao Sanchi immediately ran to Captain Mu’s ear and whispered twice.

The scene was already chaotic, everyone was speaking loudly, even if one wanted to listen, they wouldn’t be able to hear what’s being talked about. What’s more, many people’s hearts and minds were all focused on the stage.

Everyone cheerfully went up to the stage to try it out, but they returned in defeat, all of them dejected.

Soon, it was Captain Mu’s turn, since she hadn’t awakened her spiritual power since childhood, her father asked her to choose one of the many weapons, and without even thinking, she chose a large blade, which was even bigger than her person, yet she still held it, and woke up every morning to practice martial arts for ten hours a day.

It could be said that a blade had accompanied her throughout her great youth, so much so that to this day she had never met a person who liked it as much as her. She dedicated herself wholeheartedly to her own organization, the Rosebud Mercenaries, following her father’s old path.

Mu Qing’s muscles tensed up as she held the big blade in both hands, the most she thought about was holding it across, chopping, slashing and beheading as a child, practicing daily to the point where her hands blistered, and she never put it down, sleeping with it, eating with it, and walking with it on her shoulders.

This was her.

“Ah – get up.” She shouted, veins pulsing, her palms actually bleeding from holding the knife so hard that warm blood slid down the handle into the It flowed onto the knife, dripping finely, and finally being sucked clean by the blade.

The blade rose up.

Mu Qing swished the knife and split it twice in mid-air, and finally held it lightly.

“Damn it, waste of my strength.”

The Blood Soul Blade let out a shudder, and everyone couldn’t believe that the knife that had just been immobile was now being picked up by a granny.

Xue Xin was also stunned, then smiled, “Congratulations to Mu Qing, the head of the Rosebud Mercenary Group, for gaining the Blood Soul Blade.”

“No way, how can it be her.”

“That’s right, isn’t she playing some trick, Auctioneer Xue Xin, it’s just got to me, I haven’t even tried yet.”

The crowd said one thing to you and one thing to me, hating that they couldn’t just drown Mu Qing with a mouthful of saliva.

“What are you doing, come fight if you’re not satisfied.” The Blood Soul Blade in Mu Qing’s hand swung around.

Dongfang Wanyu laughed, “Brother Zhao, go congratulate Captain Mu Qing for obtaining this weapon.”

Qing Mo sighed, “I didn’t know how heroic a woman’s blood could be, but it did in fact cause the Blood Soul Blade to acknowledge its owner.”

Xue Xin saw that everyone was unconvinced and immediately stopped them, “Don’t do anything reckless, this matter was specifically instructed by Mr. Zhongshan, whoever can pull up the Blood Soul Blade is the winner.”

She then turned to Mu Qing, “Congratulations, Captain Mu, but Mr. Zhongshan still has another request, saying that the Blood Soul Blade must recognize an owner, and that the person must be brought to him. If Captain Mu is fine with that, please follow me.”

Mu Qing went with her, and the people from the Rose Mercenary Group were naturally waiting outside. Dongfang Wanyu also took this opportunity to follow the servants to the exchange room.

Each auction winner had a separate private room, and Dongfang Wanyu was the same.

Dongfang Wanyu sat in the private room for a moment and soon saw a waitress arriving with the auction items.

Dongfang Wanyu handed her spatial ring directly to the other party, and the other party handed her the auction item inside the spatial ring.

Delivering the goods with one hand and handing over the spirit stones with the other.

“This girl, please come with us and we’ll escort you out.”

In order to avoid the auction item being robbed by someone down the path, Tianyun Pavilion had also sent someone to escort her out from the place.

“Thoughtful service.” Dongfang Wanyu went out thinking about Captain Mu and the others and asked, “Qing Mo, do you think Captain Mu can keep this Blood Soul Blade?”

Firstly, Mr. Zhongshan’s reputation was too great, and many people had begged him many times for a weapon.

Secondly, people might still not approve of the Blood Soul Blade’s recognition of ownership, and it might even draw attention to the Rosebud Mercenaries.

Dongfang Wanyu’s worries were not unreasonable, but Qing Mo said, “Based on my understanding of Mr. Zhongshan, he will certainly help the Rosebud Mercenaries get out of trouble once, but there’s no telling what will happen after that.”

They were communicating, and naturally, they didn’t see anyone sneaking up on them since Dongfang Wanyu had left.

Until suddenly Qing Mo called out, “Be careful, sneak attack.”

Even so, the ring in Dongfang Wanyu’s hand had been attacked, so fast that her finger was close to being cut off by the blade that it was bleeding.

“Quickly chase.”

Qing Mo was furious in the sea of souls, “This thief’s hand skill is so quick, even you and I were played.”

Dongfang Wanyu was certain that the other party had followed her since she had left the Cloud Pavilion, but she was worried about the safety of the Rosebud Mercenaries.

The other party’s target was definitely the item she wanted to give Ninth Sister as a gift for today’s auction, that jade belt.

“Damn.”

Dongfang Wanyu quickly chased after her, but the thief was so nimble and scampered through the crowd, she was soon so far away that Dongfang Wanyu couldn’t quite catch up to the other party.

“Be careful, the road is getting more and more isolated, a thief like this is mostly from an organization, I’m afraid he’ll lure you into the jar.” Qing Mo warned.

Dongfang Wanyu drew out the Water Thunder Whip directly and ruthlessly said, “Come one kill one, come a pair kill a pair.”

It was always only her who robbed others, how could she allow others to rob her. On top of that it would be fine if it was a normal thing, but it was meant to be a gift she was going to give to Ninth Sister.

“Thief where do you want to go now?”

Dongfang Wanyu bounced on the wall and lashed out at the thief with her whip.

The thief, who was also a sensitive spiritualist, dodged lightly and let her whip hit the ground.

There was a crack in the ground and charred black marks on it.

“Lightning Spiritual Master, hmph average.”

Leaving those words behind, the thief immediately turned around and fled again. Dongfang Wanyu was completely angry.

“Drop what you’re holding and I won’t kill you.”

She directly launched her earth spirit power, and soon, a wall appeared out of thin air, completely blocking the thief’s path.

The thief saw this and shouted, “You’re also an Earth Spiritual Master!? Double systems! That’s not fair.”

Dongfang Wanyu gave him a cold stare, “Give it to me.”

The thief turned his hand back and shouted, “No, I like this, the worst-case scenario is I’ll give you the Spiritual Stones back.”

“No.” Dongfang Wanyu refused without even thinking about it, “Give it to me. Otherwise, don’t blame me for being rude.”

The thief saw her stubbornness and stomped his foot, also fiercely saying, “If you can, come over and get it yourself.”

Without saying a word, Dongfang Wanyu lashed out at him, and the thief actually managed to get under her whip, using the earthen wall to try to get over.

“Still trying to escape.”

Dongfang Wanyu immediately reinforced the height of the earthen wall so that the opponent couldn’t get over it at all, curling a whip around the opponent’s ankle and pulling him straight down from mid-air.

She threw him hard on the ground, and the whip came back down, “Are you going to hand it over yourself, or let me get it myself.”

The thief fell out of mid-air and grunted, “I won’t give it to you, come and get it yourself if you have the guts.”

Dongfang Wanyu, with a cold face, leaned right in to try to snatch the ring back from him.

“Beware of any tricks.” Qing Mo warned.

How could Dongfang Wanyu not be aware of the little thought inside the other party’s head, she knew that the other party must be playing tricks and wanted to see what else the other party could do.

The thief saw her approaching and a grey smoke directly came out from her fingers and floated towards Dongfang Wanyu.

Dongfang Wanyu smiled coldly and easily absorbed that grey fog. She fiercely strangled the other party’s neck and laughed, “Well done, fighting me with dark spiritual power, just see how I can make you die without a burial ground.”

Qing Mo was about to freak out in the Sea of Souls as well, “He’s a Dark Spiritual Master, although his spiritual power is weak. But I’m pretty sure he’s a Dark Spiritual Master, yet we didn’t sense anything just now. Don’t kill him just yet, tie him up, and see how he managed to hide his Dark Spiritual Master identity. ”

Qing Mo didn’t need to say this, she also knew what to do.

Dongfang Wanyu tightened her grip and smiled at the struggling person in her hand choking like he was dying.

“You let go, I’ll-give it to you, ooh, I’ll give you the-ring- to you.” the thief sensed that the other person was really trying to kill, never expected to meet someone who was so immune to his dark spiritual power.

Dongfang Wanyu snatched the ring back, checking that the jade belt inside was still there, she transferred everything inside to her other ring, this one was thrown straight to the ground.

“Are you trying to get me to let you go?” Dongfang Wanyu looked at his look and asked in a cold voice.

The thief nodded fiercely and soon felt the other party loosen her hold on him, he just wanted to flee, but then he found the other party’s whip curled around his ankle, he had just tried the taste of that whip, he was really shocked by lightning but still hasn’t slowed down yet.

“Don’t, I’ve given you everything, what else do you want?”

“You are a Dark Spiritual Master, and in the Land of the Seven Coloured Continent, for any Dark Spiritual Master, anyone has the right to be put to death, you ask me what else I want, I should be asking you how you made yourself seem like a normal person and live in the sun like that?” Dongfang Wanyu’s lips lightly hooked a smile, her voice was soft, but it made the thief feel great pressure.

The thief shrank back in fear, his usual invincible move had actually been broken, something he had never thought of.

“I-If told you, you can’t kill me.”

Dongfang Wanyu smiled, “No? Why? No matter what your identity is, as long as it’s a Dark Spiritual Master, you must die.”

The thief was stumped, the other person was right, no matter what his identity was, as long as the Dark Spiritual Energy was awakened in his body, he would definitely have to die.

“If you want to kill, go ahead and kill.”

If he had known that he would encounter such an asura today, he would never have run out on his own.

“It’s not impossible to let you go, but you have to tell me how you’re hiding the fact that you’re a Dark Spiritual Master.” Dongfang Wanyu retrieved her long whip straight away and wasn’t afraid of any more tricks he might pull.

“What do you care what method I use.” The thief was a bit annoyed, his head spun and he immediately shouted, “Why are you asking so much, is there someone else around you who is a Darkness Spiritual Master?”

Have to say that this thief was quite intelligent.

Qing Mo said in the Sea of Souls, “I have a soul search method here, I don’t think you should use it unless you have to, because it’s detrimental to others. But if he recognizes your identity and threatens you or something, you can just kill him.”

Dongfang Wanyu gave him a light glance, “Do you think you have the right to negotiate with me, to live or to die, it all depends on your words, tell me, what exactly did you use to make yourself look like a normal person.”

“This, I can tell you anything else but this is absolutely not possible.”

Dongfang Wanyu lashed straight to his neck and pulled it gently in front of her, “It seems that you don’t want to live at all.”

Because he was close, the thief once again released a cloud of grey gas from his fingertips, and he watched as his opponent easily absorbed the grey gas.

The thief’s brain was quick enough to point at Dongfang Wanyu with a frightened look on his face, “Oh, I see, you’re not a dual-system Spiritual Master, you’re a triple-system Spiritualist, and you’ve awakened-”

Dark Spiritual Power.

That’s why she was able to evade his sneak attack.

That would explain why the other party was pushing so hard to find out what method she used to hide the Dark Spiritual Master’s Identity.

“Hahahahahaha.”

As soon as Dongfang Wanyu tightened her grip, the Water Thunder Whip around the other person’s neck tightly contained the mouth of his throat, leaving him out of breath.

They did indeed die. They were backstabbed by the client and only he survived. Minghui knew about their fate that’s why she tried to get them married so they would have no regrets… She couldn’t tell them about it because a) no one would believe her at that time b) female protagonist would be suspicious c) in order for the plot to progress (Zhao becoming female protag right hand man) they needed to die unfortunately otherwise Zhao would not have left his old group.
