Chapter 510: A poor person wants to earn cash
Translator: Misty Cloud Translations Editor: Misty Cloud Translations
Since she had taken a fancy to it, they would her obtain it no matter what. This was the current thought the two guys had.
“See if there’s anything else you want.” Qin Mo reminded her.
“Mm.” Sima You Yue nodded, then lowered her head again to look at it more carefully. The two of them didn’t even look at the list, but continued to stare at her. Seeing that her eyes had started to shine brighter and brighter, they knew that she had found something else she liked.
However, when she lifted her head the next time, her gaze appeared rather solemn.
“What’s wrong?” Wu Lingyu asked.
Sima You Yue placed the list down and said, “I have found quite a few things that I want, but there are some things that are rather troublesome.”
“Troublesome, how?” Qin Mo asked.
Wasn’t this auction based on the highest bidder? As long as one had cash, why wouldn’t they be able to obtain it?
Sima You Yue pointed at the list and said, “These ingredients are all rather rare. It’s already so strange that so many have appeared. The first few were still okay, but at the end, these last two have been auctioned together. Furthermore, the difference is that there isn’t any price printed on it.”
When they heard her say this, they both looked over. All the items had prices, but the last one did not.
This kind of list was only for the people who were deemed by Xuan Yuan Pavilion to be important. Others only had the names of the itesm. This had a summary of it, as well as the starting bid. Most people saw the things they needed, and would speculate the amount of money needed based on the starting bid. Afterwards, they would prepare that amount of money.
Nobody knew how powerful the Xuan Yuan Pavilion was. Because it seemed as if they spanned across the entire world, the continents below, the outer regions of the Ancient Primordial Lands, the central regions, and some suspected, even the inner regions.
Because they didn’t know the starting bid, everyone would respect this power in their hearts. Nobody dared to provoke them.
As a result, with regards to the rules of the Xuan Yuan Pavilion, everyone knew it. Especially so for the auction. One had to pay up that very evening and could not lie about paying for it. Once they were found out, they would be placed on the blacklist forever.
The list that Sima You Yue held in her hand was one that Jun Lan and the others had specially sent. It had the starting bid. However, there was no marked price, so it was rather troublesome.
“Based on the situation from their past auction, some sellers will request for a trade of items. If we cannot give them what they want, they would be unwilling to auction it off.” Qin Mo said.
Nobody had a clue on how to deal with this kind of situation. Without knowing what the other party wanted, they could only deal with it when the time came.
After this, Sima You Yue gave a rough estimate on how much those things would cost, and it seemed that if she wanted to obtain those items, it would require a huge fortune.
She sighed because, ever since she got up here, she had to spend the crystal stones that she got from the spirit pagoda. Otherwise, it was the money she got from the Zhuo clan. The compensation that Heavenly Tiger Hall and Innumerable Green Palace had given her were all treasures. There wasn’t a single crystal stone.
Seeing how she furrowed her eyebrows, Wu Lingyu said, “The things that the Divine Devil Valley does not lack the most are crystal stones. You’re the Young Valley Master. How could you be fretting about crystal stones?”
Sima You Yue rolled her eyes, “I’ve never even gone back before. How could the Divine Devil Valley’s money has anything to do with me.”
“Silly, our Divine Devil Valley has many businesses outside.” Wu Lingyu couldn’t help but knock her on her forehead.
Sima You Yue rubbed her forehead and was stunned. She finally recalled that the people from the Divine Devil Valley were all cream of the crop of their respective areas. They usually refined bills, made tools and set up arrays, and would dump them. There were people in charge of these things, and they became their outside businesses.
The Divine Devil Valley became one of the few powers that could contend with the Sage Pavilion. There was naturally no need to mention how powerful they were, and the same went for their outside businesses. It would definitely shock her.
Sima You Yue was momentarily happy, but then she also said rather hesitatingly, “This is the fortune of the Divine Devil Valley. How could I possibly use everyone’s treasure for my own selfish needs.”
“The Memory Restaurant was originally opened for your sake. It’s not considered part of the Qin Clan’s resources. All these years, I’ve used the skills you’ve taught me and earned quite a bit. All of those are yours.” Qin Mo said.
Sima You Yue still felt unsettled. She still felt like she had to use her own money.
After thinking left and right about it, she could only sell of some of her things. It was a good thing that she wasn’t lacking in items.
Once she thought of it, she would get it done. She chased the two of them out, then went into the spirit pagoda alone. She selected a few items that caught her eye, then went to the Xuan Yuan Pavilion on the morning of the second day.
Although it was their first time here, once she said that she was here for Jun Lan, someone showed her into the back of the courtyard. After waiting for around an hour, she finally saw Jun Lan rush over all covered in dust. Following after her were a few strong guards. It seemed that after the incident the last time, she had placed more importance on finding people to protect her.
She came in with a smile and looked at Sima You Yue apologetically, saying, “I’m really sorry. I was just with a few of my managers discussing about the auction. I’ve made you wait for so long, I’m really sorry.”
Sima You Yue was currently chatting with Ximen Feng, and stood up to cup her fists when she saw her enter, saying, “We are truly grateful that you have set aside time to meet us despite being so busy.”
Ximen Feng cupper her fists to salute Jun Lan as well, saying, “You Yue was initially saying that he might not even be able to see you today.”
In front of others, he would address her as You Yue. He would only call her Big Sis when they were around their own people.
“How could that be. I had long since ordered for my men to inform me if you came by. Let’s sit.” Jun Lan walked over and said.
Sima You Yue and Ximen Feng sat down, saying, “Your time is so tight, I shan’t waste any time. I’ll just tell you why I’m here.”
“When I was on the way here, I already guessed that you had come here because you had something you needed.” Jun Lan said, “Is there anything you need my help with?”
“It’s like this. Yesterday, you got your men to send me a list, and there are many ingredients that I need urgently.” Sima You Yue said, “Those ingredients are priced pretty steep, so I’m guessing that I need quite a bit of money if I’m going to obtain them.”
“And so?” If it were the average person, Jun Lan would probably have gotten her people to give her a bunch of crystal stones. However, after becoming acquainted with her for a few days, she understood Sima You Yue a little. That was why she waited for her next sentence.
“I haven’t been here for long, so I don’t have many crystal stones. That’s why I was wondering if I could auction off a few items?” Sima You Yue said rather shyly.
“That’s no problem.” Jun Lan immediately agreed, “The items that can be auctioned off in a place like this cannot be low ranked, but I believe this isn’t a problem for you. You should have brought those items here, right?”
Sima You Yue took out the items that she had prepared last night and handed them to Jun Lan to take a look.
Jun Lan took a look at those items and asked Sima You yue which items had caught her eye. After appraising them for a moment, she said, “These items are not bad. However, they wouldn’t be too outstanding in the auction this time around. If you are in urgent need of cash, I have an idea.
