“It turned out to be a fire seed?”
Su Shi’s eyes were astonished.
There was a piece of jade on the stage that exuded a cold aura, and within it was a teardrop-shaped red flame.
The flame wavered slightly, and even through the cold jade, one could still feel the searing heat.
“This is a good item!”
On the stage, the main auctioneer introduced, “This is a mysterious fire found in the cold northern land, no method can extinguish it, its function is unknown for now, starting bid: three high-grade spirit stones.”
“Ten high-grade spirit stones.”
Su Shi’s voice came from the first floor.
Although there would be no one to raise the price with him even if he only added one spirit stone.
However, he still offered the high price of ten high-grade spirit stones.
After all, this was an official sale organized by Cao Jie, and since the other party was giving him face, he couldn’t let others suffer too much.
Besides, the fire might be useless to others, but to him, it was a treasure that couldn’t be exchanged for a thousand pieces of gold!
Cao Jie understood, and cupped his hands towards the first floor.
After three repetitions, the main auctioneer dropped his hammer: “Ten high-grade spirit stones, sold!”
This was Su Shi’s first time bidding, so naturally no one wanted to spoil his excitement.
“Congratulations, Commander Su.”
“Commander Su has a great sense of style!”
“You have good eyesight.”
“Even though I don’t understand it, this fire is certainly marvelous!”
The audience clapped and cheered, very excited.
Private room on the first floor.
Knock, knock, knock, knock.
There was a knock on the door.
The slender maid entered with a tray and said in a smooth voice, “Commander Su, Commander Cao asked me to bring something for you first.”
The servant girl’s eyes were clear and she looked at Su Shi without blinking.
How handsome he is!
Commander Su was even more handsome than rumored!
Seeing the servant girl’s growing appearance, Yu Ren’er said coldly, “If you dare to look at him one more time, I will gouge out your eyes!”
The servant girl was shocked, “I, I apologize!!!”
After putting down the jade, she hurriedly retreated.
Su Shi said helplessly, “Why are you scaring that girl?”
Yu Ren’er’s fierce feigned expression melted in an instant, muttering in a small voice: “It’s her own fault for looking at you!”
Su Shi shook his head.
He stretched out his hand to pick up the cold jade, smashed it directly, and the sealed fire seed fell into his palm.
The room was instantly heated by heat waves!
This kind of fire cannot be absorbed or controlled, and the Chamber of Commerce does not know what it does.
In fact, this is the “fuel” of the Fire Core!
By devouring the flames, the power of the Fire Core could be increased.
If it’s consuming enough, the Fire Core might even metamorphose and become an even stronger fire!
Su Shi’s palm lit up with Blue Sky Heavenly Flame and inserted a fire seed into it.
The blue-green flame surged!
The divine flame became purer, as if a clear spring flowing quietly, but containing explosive power!
“Its power has increased by at least thirty percent!”
Su Shi’s eyes were shocked.
This fire energy was surprisingly high!
Without mentioning anything else, this fire seed alone already made his journey worthwhile!
Feeling the terrifying aura coming from the first floor, the people’s backs chilled slightly.
Most likely this aura is close to the Late Stage of Golden Elixir Realm, right?
As expected of Commander Su!
There were only a few items that Su Shi could see in the next auction.
When he stopped bidding, the crowd was no longer worried and the bidding became much more intense.
Yu Ren’er yawned in boredom.
Suddenly, a strange object was brought to the front of the stage.
It was a pure black ring with a ring of sharp spikes on the outside.
“Beast ring, starting price: one high-grade spirit stone!”
Yu Ren’er immediately sat up straight and stared straight at the ring.
Su Shi wondered, “What’s wrong?”
“When I saw it, I felt my countryman’s aura from there.”
Su Shi froze for a moment.
At that moment, Li Yu said loudly, “I will pay four high-grade spirit stones!”
He could see that he was panting, and his pale face looked excited.
It was obvious that he had come for this item!
Li Yu stood up, smiled, and cupped his hands: “This is just a gadget for fun, and it’s not useful for everyone, so please let me have it.”
“Young Master Li is too polite.”
“If Young Master Li likes it, you can have it.”
This is an unknown item, and probably not everyone can use it, so it’s better to let Li Yu buy it.
“Four high-grade spirit stones, first offer….”
Li Yu’s smile grew bigger and bigger.
Just then, a voice came from the first floor:
“Ten high-grade spirit stones, I will buy it.”
The scene instantly became deathly quiet.
Li Yu’s smile froze on his face.
How could Su Shi make another offer?
He changed his expression, hesitated for a moment, but sat back down silently.
Even if he had ten guts, he wouldn’t dare to compete with Su Shi!
“Strange, what does Su Shi want this thing for? Could it be that he is also ……”
Li Yu’s eyes flashed, not knowing what he was thinking.
“Ten high-grade spirit stones, sold!”
The main auctioneer dropped the gavel.
Just like last time, the item was quickly sent to the first floor, this time the maid lowered her head, not daring to look at Su Shi.
Su Shi picked up the beast ring and casually threw it to Yu Lian’er.
Yu Lian’er was stunned for a moment, “This… is for me?”
Su Shi frowned, “You don’t want it?”
“I want it!”
The smile on Yu Ren’er’s face broke out and she said sweetly, “Thank you brother Su Shi!”
“No problem, it’s just some spirit stones.”
Su Shi didn’t think anything of it.
This thing is called a beast ring, it should be used to tame beasts, it has no use for him.
Yu Ren’er played with that thing for a long time.
There was a hook on it that could break the ring, but there was no response when she injected spiritual energy.
She was puzzled: “How does this thing really work?”
Su Shi looked at the shape and said, “If I’m right, it’s a neck ring.”
“A neck ring?”
Yu Ren’er curiously placed it on her neck.
The clasp automatically locked and the neck ring tightened violently.
Yu Ren’er’s body froze, and her spiritual energy was sealed as if it had been sealed!
Two pointed ears emerged from her veil, and her furry tail swept under her black dress.
She sat on a chair, her face flushed, her eyes misty, and she said sadly, “Help me, I have no more energy~”
Su Shi covered his forehead.
“I said it’s a neck ring, who told you to put it on yourself?”
This stupid fox!
Yu Ren’er had a pretty face, long animal ears, and a thorn neck ring on her snow-white neck.
It looked very beautiful in a different way.
Su Shi cupped his chin and said, “It’s a pity there are no weaboos here, otherwise you would be considered a goddess by them.”
Yu Ren’er was so embarrassed that she covered her face and said, “Brother Su Shi, please take it off for me quickly.”
It was too embarrassing to look like this!
Su Shi got up and walked over.
“No, don’t scratch my ears!”
“So this is real?”
“Of course it’s real! Ah, my tail, don’t touch my tail either!!!”
