The Indomitable Master Of Elixirs Webnovel Chapter 1153
Something flashed across Ji Fengyans eyes.
Long Xis side remained silent. The auctioneer waited for a while before calling out for additional bids. If there were no other bids after the third call, the Nine Revolutions Soul Return Elixir would go to Long Yue. Sitting among the crowd, Long Yue looked like he was ready to celebrate his win.
But just as Long Yue was so certain the Nine Revolutions Soul Return Elixir would belong to him, a moving female voice suddenly rang out.
"Five million gold pieces."
The atmosphere of that auction house intensified at that astronomical bid.
Long Yues 500,000 incremental bid already had everyone shocked. No one expected that someone else would come in with a one million incremental bid!
In reflex, the crowd turned their heads to the source of that voice. They could only tell that it originated from the window of a private room, but could not see who was inside.
Long Yue expected no one to outbid him at this juncture. The smile on his face faded, and displeasure flashed across his eyes. "5.5 million gold pieces," He said in a frosty voice.
That voice from the private room sounded out again. And this time, the bid had everyone dumbfounded.
"10 million gold pieces."
Long Yue gave a shout as he stood up from his chair. He glared angrily at that private room.
Long Yue had been much pampered since a young age. Perhaps the Sa Er Emperor had always felt guilty about not being around him while he was growing up. As such, among all his children, he had bestowed the most benefits to him. Otherwise, Long Yue would not have bid four million gold pieces without batting an eyelid.
10 million was too high a figure, even for Long Yue.
"Second prince?" One bystander couldnt help feeling stunned by Long Yues reaction.
Who the hell had the audacity to go against second prince Long Yue?
An icy glint surfaced in Long Yues eyes. His moist, red lips tightened into a thin line.
Inside the private room, Long Xi gaped at Ji Fengyan, who had shouted out that astronomical bid. He could hardly believe his own ears.
10 million gold pieces?
Had she gone mad?
Long Xi was just about to say something when Long Yue spoke again.
"10.1 million gold pieces." But Long Yue appeared to have lost his bold manner. One could detect a hint of displeasure and restraint in his voice.
Ji Fengyan grinned at the increasingly grim Long Yue. She casually called out yet another mind-boggling sum.
Everyone, including Long Xi, was dumbstruck.
Even Long Xi, with his status as the crown prince, had never held so much money in his life.
That bid completely threw Long Yue. He gritted his teeth as he glared at the private room. His eyes were nearly spewing out flames.
There was no way that even he could afford that much money.
The eyes of the crowd were all focused on Long Yue. They had never seen the much-pampered second prince undergo any hardships before.
Under the scrutiny of the congregation, Long Yue suddenly smiled. "I wonder which young miss is expressing so much interest in that Nine Revolutions Soul Return Elixir? To be honest, it is going to be Grand Tutor Xing Huns birthday soon. I had intended to present this Nine Revolutions Soul Return Elixir as a birthday gift to him. If the young miss is willing to give it up to me, I will be most grateful."
