At Wu Zhangkong’s words, Tang Wulin was delighted. He knew he wouldn’t have to worry about finding the items needed to break the second seal in the future with Wu Zhangkong by his side.
“Thank you, Teacher Wu. I’ll work hard to earn enough money to buy them all in a few years.” Tang Wulin glowed with optimism; he saw hope now!
According to the current estimated timeline, he still had five years to break the second seal and when he did, he probably would not have to worry about the next seal until he turned 20. He was only ten right now. He was certain that an opportunity to break the third seal would appear in those ten years of peace.
Wu Zhangkong responded with a slight nod and didn’t continue the conversation.
Although he certainly could help Tang Wulin find the items and it would be easier for Tang Wulin, he had no intentions of doing so. One would never truly cherish something if one didn’t obtain it one’s self. Only by relying on one’s self could one walk forward steadily. This wasn’t for the sake of cultivating one’s strength, but for growing one’s character. Though the items Tang Wulin spoke of were expensive, they were not impossible to obtain when considering the blacksmith rank he had achieved at such a young age. It was only a matter of time before he could buy them. Wu Zhangkong determined that it was best for Tang Wulin’s growth if he worked for it himself.
“Honored guests, we will begin the auction shortly.” A tender and melodious female voice resounded throughout the hall. The lights dimmed while the stage lights glowed, serving as a signal for a beautiful lady in a dark red dress to make her entrance onto the stage. She gave a slight bow to the seated guests.
Several staff members that were each charged with an area of bidders appeared from the side to aid the auctioneer in controlling the bidders once the bidding started. The moment a bidder raised their sign, the staff member would point them out to the auctioneer, helping facilitate the proceedings.
“First, let me welcome all of our honored guests on behalf of the Heaven Dou Imperial Auction. Now for the first item…” The lady didn’t waste any words and cut straight to the point as she walked to the back of a gilded wooden table with a smile.
A cart was pushed onto the stage while a screen at the back of the stage lit up.
“Our first item today is the very rare spirit fruit Frozen Grass. As everyone knows, the Frozen Grass is a top-tier ice-attribute spirit fruits and will be of great assistance to any ice-attribute Soul Master. We sacrificed much to acquire this thousand-year Frozen Grass so I will tell you, our honored guests, that this is the best spirit fruit we are auctioning today.”
The cart was covered by a red cloth; sitting on it was a jade-white box. Mist as cold as ice overflowed from its opening, enshrouding the light blue grass that was swaying gently within.
