Chapter 445 Twenty Million! I Don’t Have Any Money
The Ling Family?
Everyone looked at the young man who stood up with a smile and a confident look on his face. They were all worried.
“Everyone seems to be a little afraid of this person, right?” Fang Qiu murmured.
“They’re not afraid of him. They are afraid of the Ling Family.” He Gaoming explained quickly, “He is Ling Tianxiao, the young master of the Ling Family, which is one of the rare ancient martial arts noble families in the martial arts world. He is only 24 years old, and his strength has reached the fifth class. It is said that he will soon break through to the sixth class. In the entire martial arts world, his talent is second to none.”
“Oh.” Fang Qiu nodded.
Ancient martial arts noble family?
It was the first time he had heard of it.
Did ancient martial arts really exist?
Nobody knew whether it was because they were showing some respect to Ling Tianxiao or the auction price exceeded the actual value of Mei Leaf, no one offered to raise the price after Ling Tianxiao gave his offer.
Obviously, this was good news for everyone.
Ling Tianxiao was able to buy the Heaven Treasure smoothly and made a good offer. The others thought that it would be a loss to raise the price again, so they could also do the Ling Family a favor.
Why wouldn’t be happy to do something like that?
“17 million once.” On the auction block, the auctioneer in a white gauzy dress shouted with a smile, “17 million, twice.”
Under the stage, there was silence.
Everyone was waiting patiently for the auction to end.
“17 million…” It seemed that no one was bidding anymore. The auctioneer shouted, picked up the small wooden hammer on the auction block, and was ready to knock it down.
But just as she was about to knock, Fang Qiu, who had not bid yet, finally raised his hand in the last second. “18 million!”
On the auction stage, hearing that someone was going to raise the price, the auctioneer smiled at once. She quickly put down the wooden hammer in her hand and pointed in the direction of Fang Qiu, saying, “This gentleman bid 18 million yuan. Does anyone else want to offer another price?”
Under the stage, the crowd burst into an uproar.
Everyone was staring at Fang Qiu.
“Who is this?”
“How dare he take the Ling Family’s thing?”
“Ling Tianxiao is not a person to be trifled with. Besides, he has already revealed his identity, and this man still dared to take it. Isn’t he too reckless?”
Ling Tianxiao, who was slightly thinner, dressed in a suit and had black curly hair, frowned at the moment he looked at Fang Qiu.
“Sir?” Staring at Fang Qiu, Ling Tianxiao smiled and asked, “Are you not going to give it up and do me a favor?”
“No, I don’t think so,” Fang Qiu shook his head gently and said. “This is an auction. If no one makes an offer, it will mean that we don’t respect the owner here. If I don’t raise the price, won’t the owner of this place lose money? So I think it’s better to compete fairly.”
“Hmph!” Ling Tianxiao snorted coldly and said, “19 million!”
Although the Ling Family was a noble family in the martial arts world, it didn’t have too much money to squander randomly. What was more, all the people of the Ling Family were concentrated on practicing ancient martial arts. Naturally, the money they earned couldn’t be compared with that of those large enterprises.
As for Ling Tianxiao, 20 million yuan was his bottom line.
So, when he shouted out 19 million yuan, he stared at Fang Qiu with a cold face, hoping that Fang Qiu would not add any more, and his eyes were still threatening.
If he met someone else, he might be able to take down this Mei Leaf with 17 million yuan.
Unfortunately, the person he encountered was Fang Qiu!
“20 million!” Fang Qiu raised his hand and shouted.
As Ling Tianxiao heard that, his face darkened.
After thinking for a while, it was not until the auctioneer was about to make a deal with Fang Qiu that Ling Tianxiao gritted his teeth and shouted, “21 million!”
Then Ling Tianxiao immediately said to Fang Qiu, “Brother, let’s be friends. I really need this very much.”
“Sorry.” Fang Qiu shook his head and said, “I’m in need of it more urgently than you. I’ll get it no matter what I have to do today.”
“22 million!” Fang Qiu raised his hand and shouted again.
This time, all the people present were in a tumult.
Everyone looked at Fang Qiu and then at Ling Tianxiao, as if they were watching this drama. Everyone’s face was faintly full of expectation, hoping that the two of them would continue to fight.
After all, they’d like to be lookers-on.
Ling Tianxiao glared at Fang Qiu in anger!
He was the young master of the Ling Family!
At the auction, he had already persuaded Fang Qiu. He didn’t expect that Fang Qiu didn’t show him any respect at all, which made him fly into a rage.
Now Fang Qiu’s offer had completely exceeded his expectations.
Even if he wanted to raise the price, there was not enough money there for him to do that.
“Humph!” Ling Tianxiao snorted and sat down, no longer bidding up the price.
All the people present began to talk about it as they saw it.
“So he doesn’t want to fight anymore?”
“That’s rare. The young master of the Ling Family lost to a nobody.”
“Yeah, I didn’t expect that there was such a fool who dared to challenge the Ling Family.”
“I heard that Ling Tianxiao was the most important person in the Ling Family and also the favorite son of the host of the Ling Family. Presumably, he wants this Mei Leaf to help him break through to the sixth class. If this thing is spread out, I’m afraid that the person who is going to take the Mei Leaf away from him will be screwed.”
“Yes, although the Ling Family has been living in the Ganzhou Province, their influence is not limited there.”
Under everyone’s heated discussion, the auctioneer had knocked on the wooden hammer three times.
“Congratulations.” The auctioneer looked at Fang Qiu and said with a smile, “The final bid of this auction is at a price of 22 million yuan. Please go to the side hall to make a deal.”
“Please wait.” Just as the auctioneer was about to step down, Fang Qiu suddenly stood up.
Everyone turned to look at Fang Qiu in confusion.
“I don’t have enough money with me,” Fang Qiu said.
As soon as he said that, the entire auction room was in an uproar right away.
“What’s going on?”
“Oh my god, it’s a good show.”
“No way, he’s so good at making trouble. He was so straightforward when he offered a price just now, but now he said that he didn’t have the money?”
“Why bother if you don’t have money?”
“It’s 22 million. It’s not a small number.”
“How dare this guy says that he doesn’t have enough money when he actually participates in the auction?”
“Is this guy digging his own grave?”
“It’s the first time that I’ve seen someone do such a thing in an auction house. He’s messing with the people of the auction house.”
All the people present were talking about it.
Everyone was dumbfounded.
No one had expected that such a thing would happen at the end of the auction.
Not only the people who participated in the auction but the host of the auction was also furious.
On the auction block, the auctioneer wearing a white dress was also dumbfounded.
What was going on?
He didn’t have any money?
She was dumbfounded.
She was just an auctioneer, and she didn’t know what to do.
At the backstage of the auction, with a sound of banging the table, a middle-aged man shouted angrily, “Are you kidding me? You’re digging your own grave!”
Under the auction block, compared to everyone’s shock, Ling Tianxiao, who had been suppressed by Fang Qiu during the auction, sneered after hearing Fang Qiu’s words.
“Ha-ha…” Staring at Fang Qiu with disdain and contempt, Ling Tianxiao mocked, “I was wondering who would dare to compete with me. It turned out to be a loser without any money!”
Hearing that, many people present also laughed.
They really liked to watch such things.
Anyway, no matter how things developed, it would not have anything to do with them. They wanted to see who dared to look down on the Ling Family and mess with the hosts of the auction in such a way.
At this moment, footsteps suddenly came from the auction floor.
The crowd looked around.
A middle-aged man and an old man in a blue robe stepped out and stood on the auction floor.
Seeing the two of them, the auctioneer hurried to step aside.
“They are the hosts, right?”
“The middle-aged man is the master of this manor, who is named Xuan Yiqing. The one who is next to him is his housekeeper, the keeper of the entire manor.”
“There is a good show here. Even Xuan Yiqing has appeared. Let’s see what this kid is going to do.”
“I heard that Xuan Yiqing also invited a super expert to come in order to hold the auction.”
“I’ve heard about it too. I’m afraid this boy is going to die today.”
“He did this by himself.”
Just as everyone was discussing, Fang Qiu also looked up at the two people on the auction stage.
Xuan Yiqing was wearing a simple white practitioner suit. He was neither fat nor thin. He had a square face and looked extremely dignified.
Beside him, the old man was amiable and looked at Fang Qiu with kindness in his eyes.
Fang Qiu could see that this old man was an ordinary person without any martial arts.
The eighth-class expert with one meridian was still sitting in the back of the stage.
While Fang Qiu looked at the two, they also gazed at Fang Qiu.
“Pitter-patter…” Just as he was about to speak, there was a sound of footsteps.
A man ran up from the backstage of the auction block and whispered a few words to Xuan Yiqing.
“Oh, you’re the eldest son of Xiangxi,” Xuan Yiqing said and held fist salute. “I don’t know if you can reveal your face. As long as I am sure you are the eldest son of Xiangxi, I will definitely not make it difficult for you.”
Xiangxi’s eldest son?
They were rich. No wonder they could sit in the third row.
But it didn’t make sense.
Would Xiangxi’s eldest son worry about 22 million?
There were more than 20 million that the eldest son could spend, not to mention how rich his family was.
Since he was the eldest son, how would he end up in this situation?
In everyone’s exclamations of surprise and suspicion, Fang Qiu shook his head very resolutely and said, “I’m not the eldest son. My friend and I robbed their letters. Don’t get anyone involved in this matter today.”
As soon as they said that, everyone present was shocked.
Who would have thought that the eldest son’s invitation letter had been stolen?
But the thing was that since Fang Qiu didn’t have any money, why did he steal the invitation letter?
He just came here to cause quite a stir.
“Since you are so upright, then I will just cut to the chase. How do you think this matter can be solved today?” Xuan Yiqing asked.
“I have an item and I don’t know how much it can be sold.” While Fang Qiu was talking, he flipped his right hand and immediately took out the Earth Bead that he had just obtained not long before.
