In an office on the top floor of the building of Baoyi Auction House, a middle-aged man in a vest sat at his desk, smoking a cigar and frowning at his computer.
The computer showed He Gaoming’s latest post on Wulin forum.
A busty woman in overalls, standing at the desk, asked gravely, “Will the evening auction go on or not? There’s an auction that starts at 6:30.”
The middle-aged man put his cigar in the ashtray and picked up a wet towel from a tray on his desk to wipe his hands, saying, “Not everyone can challenge our auction house.”
Then he let out a cold snort. “Huh.”
Fang Qiu and He Gaoming left the hotel, walked into a noodle shop next to the hotel, and ordered a bowl of fried sauce noodles.
He Gaoming was excited because he thought he would finally see the mysterious man’s face. However, even when eating the noodles, the mysterious man still covered his face, his weird mask even covering the bowl.
He Gaoming couldn’t see his face unless he uncovered his mask.
But did He Gaoming dare to do that to the mysterious man?
After eating the noodles, Fang Qiu wiped his mouth, adjusted his mask, and said, “You pay.”
He Gaoming was not pleased.
“Because you lost my Earth Treasures,” Fang Qiu said indifferently.
“But I’ve suffered and been hurt,” He Gaoming retorted, pointing to the bruise on his face with one hand and covering his stomach with the other.
“That’s because you’re too weak.”
Fang Qiu had no mood swings.
“That’s because you didn’t teach me!”
He Gaoming was in the mood.
It was a good opportunity for him.
Although he had taken Fang Qiu as his master, it was only on the surface. He did not like the appearance of the relationship, so he thought he must take the opportunity to make it real and get something out of it.
However, when he finished speaking, Fang Qiu ignored him.
“Than we split the bill, okay?” He Gaoming offered helplessly.
Fang Qiu frowned and glanced at He Gaoming.
He Gaoming smiled bitterly and got up to settle the bill.
It was almost seven o’clock in a twinkling.
Many people on the Wulin forum started to ask.
“It’s almost seven o’clock. Does the mysterious man go to Baoyi Auction House?”
“Has anyone in the capital been to the auction house? Can you broadcast it live?”
“I heard that there was an auction at Baoyi Auction House today. How’s the auction doing?”
“Can those people in Wulin on the scene tell us about the situation?”
At this point, the auction went on full alert.
After all, the mysterious man had openly challenged them, and they had to defend themselves.
At seven o’clock, Fang Qiu and He Gaoming showed up at the gate of Baoyi Auction House.
The second floor of the building was the auction hall.
There was an auction going on in the auction hall.
With the arrival of Fang Qiu and He Gaoming, the people in the monitor room of the auction house got suddenly nervous.
The mysterious man came!
Although He Gaoming wasn’t famous, the mysterious man’s clothes really stood out, and no one usually dressed like that. So Fang Qiu and He Gaoming got the attention of the auction house when they showed up.
They walked into the lobby on the first floor side by side.
Without hesitation, they went straight up the spiral staircase to the second floor.
On the second floor, they saw a hall.
The hall was half the size of the one on the first floor.
Across the hall, in front of them was a dark red wooden door, a little primitive. The door, with its gold engraving, looked rather luxurious.
There were two young men on either side of the door.
Both of them wore tuxedos and white silk gloves.
They didn’t seem to know Fang Qiu and He Gaoming. Seeing two people come up, the two young men immediately came to them with a smile and said, “Sir, the auction has begun. You want to go in now?”
“Nonsense. What am I doing here if I don’t go in?” He Gaoming snapped.
“If you want to go in, please show me the invitation card,” said the young man.
“What’s the invitation card?”
He Gaoming started and said, “We don’t have it.”
The young man quickly explained, “There is something special about this auction. You can’t go in without an invitation card.”
He Gaoming was embarrassed by the young man’s politeness. He turned to Fang Qiu and asked, “What to do?”
“We are not here to bid. Why do you ask for invitations?” Fang Qiu snorted.
He went straight on, in complete disregard of the two young men.
When he came to the gate, he lifted his leg and kicked.
There was a loud noise.
Fang Qiu just kicked the luxury gate broken!
The whole gate collapsed.
Another noise rang.
As the gate fell, Fang Qiu saw an octagonal space that resembled a courtyard.
At a glance, Fang Qiu saw that there were squares in all eight directions of the auction hall. And in each square, there were at least 30 chairs, all of which were already occupied.
And in the middle of the auction hall, there was a platform about one meter high.
A full-breasted, hot woman in a professional suit was standing on the high platform.
In the middle of the platform was a circular auction table on which an item was being placed. Before the gate collapsed, the woman was explaining the item’s power.
Having kicked the gate down, Fang Qiu walked straight into the auction hall, with He Gaoming right behind him.
The two went to the circular table in the middle of the auction house.
When they looked up, they saw that there was a second floor.
However, the arrangement of the second floor was different from that of the first floor. The eight squares on the second floor had only a few seats, but each square had an extremely luxurious chair. In addition, there were door curtains. The design was quite crafty. Sitting on the top, one could still clearly see the auction items below.
Obviously, the second floor was prepared for the experts in Wulin.
It was only that Baoyi Auction House had not entered Wulin completely at present, so they naturally didn’t have experts to come to the auction.
The audience of the eight squares on the first floor was stunned.
But after they saw the mysterious man, the shock on everyone’s face quickly faded, replaced by excitement and thrill.
Many of them came to the auction just to wait for the mysterious man John Doe!
Unexpectedly, John Doe really came!
Standing in front of that busty woman, Fang Qiu said with chill flashing in his eyes, “Call your boss out, or I’ll ruin the auction!”
He Gaoming stared at the woman, his eyes wide open, because she had such a great figure and half of her breasts were almost exposed.
Who could bear such a temptation?
Now He Gaoming finally understood why Baoyi Auction House had done so well in just over 10 years.
Even their auctioneers were so hot.
There must be a lot of shady business going on at this auction house!
“What a pity…” He Gaoming couldn’t help sighing.
Fang Qiu turned around and gave him a dirty look.
He Gaoming shivered and shifted his attention.
“Didn’t you hear me?”
Fang Qiu looked at the woman in front of him, who seemed stunned.
The woman responded, flustered, walked off the auction platform, and ran quickly to one side. Then she turned around, smiled, and said, “Our boss is not the kind of person you can meet at will. Before that, our boss has a little surprise for you.”
As soon as the voice died away, the whistle of wind came.
“Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh…”
A lot of people suddenly showed up in the eight squares on the second floor, and some of them jumped straight down from the second floor, landing in a circle around Fang Qiu and He Gaoming.
“Those who dare to make trouble here are just looking for death!”
A cold snort sounded.
Looking up, Fang Qiu saw a middle-aged man standing on the fence on the second floor and coldly staring at him on the auction platform.
Seeing the man, Fang Qiu gave a little shake of his head and said, “You guys, you’re no match for me. Let your boss come out and hand over the Earth Treasures!”
“I only came to persuade you to go.”
The middle-aged man on the second floor shook his head nonchalantly and said, “I’m not the best here. I know you’re strong. But I hope you’re not conceited, or no one can save you.”
Fang Qiu shook his head and chuckled.
Then he moved.
He instantly appeared in front of the middle-aged man on the second floor.
As a sixth-class Martial Superior, the middle-aged man was grabbed by Fang Qiu by the neck before he even realized it.
“You only get one chance. Go back, ask your boss to come out and give me my Earth Treasures back, or… I’ll bloody his auction house!”
With that, Fang Qiu waved his arm and threw the guy out.
At the sight of this, all the people around him were frightened.
They had no idea that Fang Qiu was so powerful.
A sixth-class Martial Superior almost lost his life before he could have a chance to make a move!
How could the fight go on?
Meanwhile, the spectators on the first floor were all excited.
One part of the people hurriedly took out their mobile phones and replied in the Wulin forum.
“John Doe has come!”
“John Doe has really come!”
“It’s John Doe indeed.”
“Haha, he’s really John Doe. He meant what he said!”
These people showed off, but no one dared to take pictures.
Because they all knew that taking pictures was likely to annoy the mysterious man John Doe. After all, it was illegal to come here to fight. Once being investigated, John Doe was sure to cause these people trouble.
In addition, taking photos here could also have a very bad effect on the Baoyi Auction House.
They were already annoyed at being provoked. How could the auction house continue to do this if their misery was made public?
Although there were no photos, with the continuous confirmation of many people, the Wulin forum immediately hot up.
There was even a post for people at the auction house to continue to broadcast the whole thing live.
Just then, a kind laugh broke out.
The crowd looked around, and an old man came out of the back of the auction platform, looked at Fang Qiu on the auction platform with a smile on his face, and said, “You’re my guest. Why don’t you sit down?”
