Ji Fengyan did not seem to realize that the crowd had already pigeonholed her as someone with money but no depth to her character.
As article after exquisite article was purchased by Ji Fengyan, the atmosphere in the Sacred Dragon Auction House had turned increasingly cold and cheerless. Unable to attain their desired items, the crowd gradually lost interest in the auction.
Just as the assembled people started getting restless, the Sacred Dragon Auction House finally took out a new auction artifact that stirred the spirits of everyone!
A black-clad servant progressed toward a wooden-wheeled carriage covered by a red cloth on the auction stage. The red cloth shielded the item from prying eyes, but auction regulars all knew that an object wheeled out in the Sacred Dragon Cart would be an exceptionally noteworthy artifact.
In a flash, everyone perked up, their gaze burning with interest at that splash of red on the auction stage.
“Everyone, next up we have something extraordinary up for auction. Some of you may have heard legends regarding it—but this time, you will be able to witness it with your own eyes. I can assure you, in the entire Kingdom of the Sacred Dragon, you will never find another like this.” Having whetted the crowd’s appetite, the auctioneer nodded at the black-clad servant before countless of eager eyes.
The figure in black pulled back the red cloth from the Sacred Dragon Cart!
Under the red fabric, a crystal glass case measuring half the height of a man revealed itself before everyone. That case, made of completely transparent crystal glass, housed a red artifact within it.
A tree branch as thick as the forearm of a grown man was inside. It was of a distinctly bizarre scarlet color—as though someone had doused it in fresh blood. A red fruit the size of a bean hung at the end of the branch—looking like a ruby-red jewel and giving off a poignant glow under the candlelight.
The moment they unveiled the item, everyone within the auction house inhaled a cold breath of air!
“This is a branch off the Tree of the Flowing Bloodshed. Everyone knows that the tree is a cherished treasure of the Demon Clan and guarded by the Demon King. It holds the key to life and death, flesh and bone – and is more effective than any other medicine in the world. Legend has it that after a fierce battle with the Demon King, the Divine Swordsman had lost one arm and was left clinging to life. However, after ingesting the fruit from the Tree of the Flowing Bloodshed, he grew a new arm. To be honest, this branch from the Tree of the Flowing Bloodshed was the very one brought back by the Divine Swordsman. Having this item here today at the Sacred Dragon Auction House is indeed an especially rare opportunity.” The auctioneer went on and on, but the crowd was no longer listening to his speech.
There were too many legends surrounding the Tree of the Flowing Bloodshed. People were already full of their own notions of this Demon Artifact; there was absolutely no need for the auctioneer to say anything more. Everyone was fully aware of just how valuable this item was!
In an instant, the atmosphere within the auction house rose to a fevered peak. Everybody was fired up with an intense determination to win the bid on this object!
Standing upon the stage, a satisfied glint flashed across the auctioneer’s eyes as he observed the crowd’s reaction. “As the Tree of the Flowing Bloodshed is an exceedingly unique item, the bidding process for it will be different from the norm—no cash, only precious jewelry and ornaments will be accepted. Whoever offers the rarest and most valuable treasures will get the Tree of the Flowing Bloodshed!”
