Chapter 243 – My Existence Is Valuable
The Southern Ridge Old Ancestor was squeezed to death by Lin Fan.
He only had an Eight-Grade Golden Spirit Root and was a casual cultivator who had paid too much to cultivate to reached True Stage. He had cultivated for six hundred years to reach the True Stage.
Moreover, when he was in the Establish Stage, he didn’t have much qi before stepping into the Disaster Stage.
Therefore, after encountering such a remarkable sacred object like the Nine Colored Flowers, he became lively and wanted to swallow it himself. This elixir had so many wonders; it could give him the Sacred Immortal Body and five types of spirit roots. The least of which could condense nine spirit roots and even emerge as Immortal-Grade Spirit Roots.
What kind of miracle was this?
This was unthinkable even for a True Stage cultivator like him.
He wanted to swallow the Nine Colored Flowers to boost his spirit roots and condense into a Sacred Immortal Body. However, looking at the current situation, it was clearly not as simple as he thought.
Huang Li calmly said, “Southern Ridge Old Ancestor, I hope you can understand that the Nine Colored Flowers’ auctioning was your request. You also requested our Heavenly Treasure Pavilion to gather the three great factions: immortals, demons, and demon cultivators for this auction… If you say that you won’t auction it off now, you should know how much loss our Heavenly Treasure Pavilion will suffer.”
“You can’t afford this loss, and neither can our Heavenly Treasure Pavilion.”
Her tone was soft, and she hadn’t gone too far with this Southern Ridge Old Ancestor.
She hadn’t expected that a True Stage cultivator would suddenly take back his word at a time like this. If he really didn’t want to auction off the elixir, the Heavenly Treasure Pavilion’s reputation of a thousand years would be ruined.
Who would still believe in the Heavenly Treasure Pavilion’s reputation after this?
The Southern Ridge Old Ancestor looked at the Nine Colored Flower and automatically regretted it. If he had been braver and taken the Nine Colored Flower, perhaps this wouldn’t have happened, but now he was in a dilemma. Was he really only able to auction it off?
Lin Fan saw the Southern Ridge Old Ancestor remarks and said, “The Southern Ridge Old Ancestor, there are many elixirs. Some of them are indeed great remedies for the body, but some of them are poisons. If you don’t prescribe the right elixir, you can seriously be injured.”
“Now that there are so many powerful people gathered outside, do you think you can walk away?”
That was indeed a threat.
Lin Fan’s plan wouldn’t work if he didn’t threaten this Southern Ridge Old Ancestor.
If he really let Southern Ridge Old Ancestor swallow the Nine Colored Flower, wouldn’t he be appraising it for nothing?
“Are you threatening an old man?”
The Southern Ridge Old Ancestor looked at Lin Fan. The way Heavenly Treasures spoke was fine, but this appraiser was the one who kept threatening him.
Lin Fan said calmly, “Indeed. I’m not just threatening you, but I’m also saving your life. The Nine Colored Flower is yours. If you want to take it, that’s your business. However, with so many powerful people waiting outside, we have to explain what happened. Also, we have to tell them the wonders of the Nine Colored Flower.”
“As for what they’ll do next, you don’t need me to tell you. So the message is clear now, are you sure you want to take it?”
When he learned of the Nine Colored Flower’s use, he could already imagine that the Southern Ridge Old Ancestor might not be willing to auction it off. This item was priceless, even if you were rich and had many spirit stones, you might not be able to get it.
He was definitely jealous of the Nine Colored Flower as well.
However, it was basically impossible for him to get the Nine Colored Flower.
It didn’t matter.
It was nothing unusual.
Spirit roots were just spirit roots. He could slowly mend them under the drop items. As for the Sacred Immortal Body, and even a Chaotic Immortal Body, it wasn’t a problem.
“Forget it. I’ll auction it off.”
Southern Ridge Old Ancestor’s expression was slightly bitter. He couldn’t let go of the Nine Colored Flower, but he had no choice. It had come to this point; there was no turning back. If he had known the Nine Colored Flower’s wonderful uses, he wouldn’t let it go even if he threatened to be killed.
Lin Fan and Huang Li looked at each other.
Huang Li let out a sigh of relief. If Southern Ridge Old Ancestor was stubborn and didn’t want to auction it, she indeed had no way out. This was the best outcome now and what she wanted to see it most.
Inside another house.
“Master Lin, during the auction, I wonder if you would be willing to come on stage and speak to them about the elixir’s use?” Huang Li asked.
Lin Fan chuckled, “Huang Li, there’s no need for that. If your Heavenly Treasure Pavilion knows the use of the elixir, you can just say it. I’d rather sit and wait for the draw. However, looking at your situation, it seems like the Heavenly Treasure Pavilion wants to bid as well.”
“Yes, we are. This elixir is a great treasure. The Heavenly Treasure Pavilion also wants to participate. However, it’s not that easy. If the various sects know the wonders of this elixir, they will definitely take it at any cost. Even the Heavenly Treasure Pavilion may not be able to stand up to it.”
Huang Li didn’t hide anything in front of Lin Fan. She said whatever she had; it was really straightforward. She could understand Southern Ridge Old Ancestor’s reluctance. If it were her, she would definitely be reluctant too. After all, this was a rare treasure, who could give it up?
Even with any amount of spirit stones, it couldn’t be exchanged.
And because of this elixir, the Heavenly Treasure Pavilion’s restless heart was agitated again. It was thinking ill of the forbidden area again, and still wanting to get good things from it.
Lin Fan had no interest in whether or not the Heavenly Treasure Pavilion could win the auction. He just wanted to know how many spirit stones this Southern Ridge Old Ancestor could get from auction.
If the Heavenly Treasure Pavilion were involved, then the auction would be a dragon and tiger fight. He could just sit back and waited for the draw to be made. He wouldn’t need to give anything to get something; such a good thing like this wasn’t something that could be met casually.
“When is the auction?” Lin Fan asked. He had to be there to witness the Heavenly Treasure Pavilion’s grandest auction. Although it hadn’t started yet, he knew it would be an unparalleled auction.
Huang Li said, “It will be held tomorrow.”
“Good, arrange a place for me. It just so happens that I haven’t been to the Heavenly Treasure Pavilion for a long time to pick up treasures. Maybe I can gain something later.” Lin Fan left the place and went outside to stroll around.
Because of the auction event, there were a lot of powerful people coming. He wanted to see if he could meet anyone he knew.
On the street.
The hawkers shouted continuously, and many young figures squatted in front of the stalls. They were tugging at the stall owners, hoping for a lower price, but all the stall owners had the same expression. That expression was an expression to endure the pain and sell cheaply.
It was so easy for some people to do that.
He left the crazy old man at the Greatest Martial Sect and came here alone.
It would be awkward for the crazy old man to address him as a father in a crowded place. It would attract people’s attention and would be very embarrassing.
“Brother Lin, you’re here.” Not far away, Qing Chenfeng talked to a group of young people, and when he saw Lin Fan with his afterglow, he was delighted and shouted loudly.
Lin Fan looked up and smiled, “Fellow cultivator, long time no see. I didn’t expect to see you in the Heavenly Treasure Pavilion. Could it be that you’re here with the Ancient Immortal Holy Sect elders for this auction?”
Qing Chenfeng came to Lin Fan’s side, “Yes, this time when I heard that an elixir appeared, the elders of the Ancient Immortal Holy Sect brought us here to see the world. Oh, right, let me introduce you to these juniors.”
“I’m a Saint Son of the Ancient Immortal Holy Sect. My name is Xiao She.”
This Saint Son named Xiao She was imposing, handsome and gentle, but always exuded an arrogant aura. Even when he was facing Lin Fan, he only nodded slightly. His strength was extraordinary.
“I’m the eldest daughter of the Yun Family, Yun Yushan.”
Lin Fan nodded his head. This eldest daughter was dressed in white. Her temperament was off the charts, and her skin was crystal clear. Although she was shrouded in white, her figure was delicate and graceful, such an excellent figure.
It was true that women with status all looked like they had a charming face.
If she wasn’t an immortal cultivator, he was afraid that there were definitely quite a few licking dogs surrounding this woman. However, looking at the current situation, it didn’t seem like there were no licking dogs.
The remaining ones were all great sects’ disciples and saints of the holy sects.
He wasn’t too interested. However, if he could sell them, he would be willing to make friends with them.
“I am Lin Fan, a disciple of the Greatest Martial Sect. It’s nice to meet you all.” Lin Fan had a smile on his face.
Xiao She said, “I do know that there is a fellow cultivator named Wen Xian in the Greatest Martial Sect. I heard that he is the first heavenly pride of the Greatest Martial Sect. He has a Ninth-Grade Spirit Root… I wonder if Brother Lin knows him.”
“I know him. He’s my junior brother.” Lin Fan said.
Wen Xian had always refused to admit that he was a junior brother. However, he was quite helpless; that was why Lin Fan could say that he was his junior brother for everyone to know. In the end, even if he wanted to defend himself, there was nothing he could do. What could you do if the wood was already laid?
Xiao She looked at Lin Fan in surprise. How could Wen Xian was his junior?
He never heard about this before. He only knew that the Greatest Martial Sect’s sect master intended to train Wen Xian as the next sect master.
As they casually chatted. They found out that Lin Fan was still just an ordinary disciple in the Greatest Martial Sect. It made their attitude clearly not as enthusiastic as it had been before.
To them, only people with the same status could be called brothers and sisters. So, if their status was not equal, then there was no need to do that.
On the other hand, Lady Yun Yushan hadn’t said a single word from start to finish. However, her eyes, which were as bright as jewels, were observing Lin Fan.
Lin Fan asked curiously, “Brother Qing, have you seen Brother Liu? I thought he likes to take an adventure. This was totally his style, why didn’t he come to a grand event like today’s?”
“Hahaha.” Qing Chenfeng laughed. “It’s a long story, after losing to Brother Lin last time, it seems like it gave him a bit of a blow. He’s been cultivating, even though this grand event is lively, he waved his hand and said that he wants to cultivate even further and come back to challenge Brother Lin for another sparring.”
Lin Fan felt that his existence was truly valuable.
Being able to urge others to keep cultivating meant that everything was worth it.
“Brother Lin, seeing that you’re wandering alone, why don’t you come along with us?” Qing Chenfeng invited Lin Fan to join them. They couldn’t interfere with the powerful generation. However, for them, this was a moment of exchange for their younger generation of heavenly pride.
The immortals, demons, and demon cultivators all had their pride, and they had already met quite a few on their way here.
They had already met each other many times with their small, unconcerned glances.
But this was the Heavenly Treasure Pavilion, so naturally, you could only use a little eye contact. A fight or something like that would be impossible.
Lin Fan declined, “Thank you for the invitation, but I want to take a look around by myself so that I won’t bother Brother Qing and my fellow cultivators.”
He then left the place.
Qing Chenfeng looked at the crowd and said, “Everyone, why do I feel like you guys aren’t too enthusiastic about Brother Lin?”
“Brother Qing, he is just an ordinary disciple of the Greatest Martial Sect. He is not even a core disciple, and his status is too different from ours. We are not cold to him for the sake of Brother Qing’s face.” Xiao She had his arrogance displayed on his face. Lin Fan’s status was not equal, so he didn’t bother to pay attention.
“Hey, you guys shouldn’t underestimate Brother Lin. Forget it, since you guys don’t want to, I won’t say anything more. Let’s go, and continue looking.”
Qing Chenfeng didn’t say anything more. He knew that these people were arrogant and proud. If he talked to them in a preachy tone, he was afraid it would cause a conflict.
