Chapter 156: Beauty and the Beast
If he could successfully obtain the map of Duanlong Cliff and acquire a Goldenspot ginseng, Wei Suo’s following plans would really stretch out to distant places. He would pay a visit to Perching Phoenix City to hand over the Scarletwing Flame Devil’s demonic dan-pellet to Granny Jin’s niece.
In accordance to Granny Jin’s words, if he really received 200,000 low grade spiritual stones as remuneration, then Wei Suo would once again shut himself into secluded training; with the goal of breaking through to Heavenly Circuit Stage level 4 and perhaps even level 5.
Those over twenty half-spirit class defensive artifacts and over ten half-spirit class offensive artifacts he passed to Han Weiwei, had already been sold off. Apart from those 7 outstanding Treasure Receiving pockets, his other Treasure Receiving pockets had already been settled through offloading to Han Weiwei’s Precious Treasure Pavilion in the dark.
In total, everything supplied him with 130,000 low grade spiritual stones.
Any complete map of a region outside of the Heavenly Dome, would at most cost several thousands of spiritual stones. Apart from the Duanlong Cliff map, Wei Suo would take this chance to scour for any good items that could be used to raise his prowess or cultivation.
While reflecting about things in his heart, Wei Suo spectated the new change of landscape. After a while, the Spirit Treasure Lane covered by a yellow light screen, finally surfaced before Wei Suo and Han Weiwei.
The area before Spirit Treasure Lane was a vast plaza. The ground constructed of giant bricks made with an unknown smelted clay. It appeared golden and were two inches long. There was also a symbol that stated ‘Spirit Treasure Lane’. Many little stalls operated by cultivators filled this vast plaza, clearly seizing the atmosphere of the coming auction to sell off their items for a good price.
Along the way, Wei Suo could tell that this tremendous prefecture of the Seven Stars City seemed to be two times larger than Spirit Peak City.
This was the largest prefecture of Seven Stars City. Excellent artifacts were soon to be paraded in a massive auction held in this Spirit Treasure Lane. The scope and ambience of this far exceeded other auctions that Wei Suo had attended before.
There was still several hours before this massive auction would commence. Nevertheless, crowds of 300-400 cultivators had already arrived in this plaza.
These cultivators were all segregated into groups of 3-5 and chatted amongst themselves, touring about the stalls of those merchant cultivators. Moreover, there were multitudes of cultivators that appeared differently dressed compared to the ones belonging to Spirit Peak City and Falling Moon City. They probably came from a faraway location for this massive auction.
Wei Suo glanced around with his Aura Determining technique, realizing that the average cultivation level of this place vastly exceeded Spirit Peak City’s. There were Divine Sea Stage level 5 and Heavenly Circuit Stage level 1 cultivators everywhere. Furthermore, there were also numerous Heavenly Circuit Stage level 3 or higher cultivators.
While hesitating if he should browse through the cultivators’ stalls for any good merchandise, he decided to enter the auction field first. All of a sudden, a peculiar sound drifted in from the eastern side of the plaza.
Wei Suo turned to look and couldn’t help but call out, “Wakao!”
A gigantic barbaric beast was being gradually led in. This gigantic barbaric beast was as huge as Wei Suo’s previous stone hut. Its skin was greenish and it looked like a bull, with a single white horn poking out of its head. Its entire body was painted with rippling veins.
An Upper-tier level 5 water element demonic beast! The Ripplebull!
In terms of single battle power, an Upper-tier level 5 water element demonic beast was not inferior to an ordinary Heavenly Circuit Stage level 3 cultivator.
In reality, though many level 5 demonic beasts would repeatedly be slain by Divine Sea Stage cultivators, that was because they relied on the advantage of manpower; like ants nibbling at an elephant. Don’t look at the simple and honest appearance of the Ripplebull, its personality was actually exceedingly brutal and ruthless, no less than a Mind Devouring Bug.
Furthermore, right now atop the thick back of this Ripplebull, was a seat that resembled a horse saddle. A gorgeous female cultivator in golden armour and mini skirt was sitting on it.
This female cultivator had curly long hair that was strangely maroon. Her features fitted in her oval head shape, and her eyes were particularly bright. Especially between the eyelids, her fluid glance was astoundingly seductive; as though tears were about to drip out.
Yet her most striking aspect, was the material of her golden armour and mini skirt; it seemed rather discounted.
For the golden armour of her upper half, it actually only covered until the twin peaks of her chest, while the majority of her arms, her back and even her waist were revealing her white jade like skin. Moreover, one couldn’t fathom the essence metal used to forge it, and it appeared like sparkling golden armour with nice decorative designs. Looking at the upper body of this gorgeous female cultivator was enough to cause one to bleed out their nose.
Next, that black skin mini skirt of hers couldn’t be shortened anymore. Her slender snowy legs dangled down the barbaric beast. She wore a pair of outstanding looking red leather shoes that were also slightly revealing.
Under the sunlight of the early morning, this scene was truly worthy of being called the Beauty and the Beast!
Don’t even mention Wei Suo, even Han Weiwei was dumbstruck by this scene.
“Don’t you both recognize Xin Youlan?” While Wei Suo was actively fixated and shuttling his vision through the revealed portions of that female cultivator, a low voice abruptly wafted in from the back.
“She is called Xin Youlan? What a peculiar name.” Wei Suo turned around to the sound, and immediately noticed a mediocre looking yellow robed youth. “What?” Wei Suo couldn’t help being startled by this unknown yellow robed youth.
That mediocre looking yellow robed youth gently explained. “She is a Spirit Beast Palace disciple of the Thousand Longevity City, her name is Xin Youlan, a cultivator with innate Golden Spirit Root. At a tender young age, she already broke through to the Heavenly Circuit Stage level 4, and is heavily valued by the Spirit Beast Palace. Her outfit is always very revealing and her bearing appears extremely licentious, releasing an impression of a loose baby doll. Frequently, cultivators would be bewitched by her and attempt to win her heart, but would frequently fall to her vile methods. Perhaps like how brother was eyeing her just now, she may even remember that and stir up a huge trouble. Last month, a cultivator pretended to stroll past her barbaric beast for a sneak peek at the glory beneath her skirt, but was noticed by her. In the end, when that cultivator was out hunting demonic beast outside, his eyes were dug out; enough said, it was due to her handling.”
“Wakao! Adorning herself in this manner, but not wanting to let others peep?” Wei Suo couldn’t help but exclaim. As he swept his gaze around….indeed, multitudes of male cultivators were not daring to look at her. Instead, their countenance had drastically changed as they tried to avoid being noticed in terror.
Fortunately, this yellow robed youth had warned him. Wei Suo no longer dared to caress her nearly bare body with unbridled eyes, for fear of attracting the notice of this wantonly baiting female cultivator.
A rarely seen innate Golden Spirit Root and a Heavenly Circuit Stage level 4 cultivator. Wei Suo wasn’t actually very fearful of that. Besides, he was already a dual Spirit Root cultivator. With the arrangements of the green gowned Old Man, if all things goes well, he would very rapidly surpass the cultivation of this barbaric beast riding seductive female. However, as he took glances at the back of this seductive beauty, Wei Suo definitely couldn’t provoke her as of now.
Thousand Longevity City was located at the south of the Heavenly Profound Continent. It was a cultivator’s city that was separated from Seven Stars City by two other cities. Whenever an ordinary cultivator talked about the Thousand Longevity City, most would actually hail it as the City of a Thousand Beasts; or Thousand Beasts City.
Various sects of the Thousand Longevity City reared demonic beasts, and had techniques for nurturing demonic beasts. Hence, various prefectures of the Thousand Longevity City would be specialized in taming beasts, or selling materials for nurturing demonic beasts. For a long while now, many cultivators who were inclined to raising demonic beasts would take residence at the Thousand Longevity City for convenience sake. Hence, one would be able to see cultivators riding or bringing along demonic beasts throughout the streets of Thousand Longevity City.
As for the Spirit Beast Palace, it was the largest sect that controlled Thousand Longevity City. It was said that several decades ago, a Golden Dan Stage cultivator had appeared there. It was an existence superior to the Heaven’s First Sect, and could more or less compete with the Thunder Heaven Sect of Bright Heaven City.
Spirit Beast Palace employed a loose control approach over Thousand Longevity City, and would close one eye while opening the other towards squabbles between cultivators of the city. For cultivators that fought and wrecked several buildings, they would only have to compensate a fixed sum of spiritual stones; ensuring those buildings could be repaired. Hence, the Thousand Longevity City was the most intrepid of the entire Southern Heavenly Profound Continent. The cultivators of the city possessed combat experience and had higher cultivation levels than cultivators of other cities.
“I say, serves you right for casting such lecherous looks.” Hearing the yellow robed youth’s words, and after observing Wei Suo trying to be low profile now, Han Weiwei rolled her eyes and heavily snorted.
“You should learn from her a little.” Wei Suo purposefully snorted. “Just look at how sexy she is and then look at yourself, like a clay with lips.”
“Bah! You’re the clay!”
While Han Weiwei and Wei Suo were bickering, this eye-grabbing beauty and her beast had already arrived at the yellow light screen of Spirit Treasure Lane.
Looking at her pair of fair thighs, the people of Spirit Treasure Lane seemed to be accustomed to it already. Two Spirit Treasure Lane disciples clad in navy-blue brocade robes gazed fixedly as they welcomed Xin Youlan in. That Ripplebull seemed to understand how things work, and automatically detoured towards the back of Spirit Treasure Lane. No one knew where it would hold nest at.
“Seems like you two are intending to participate in the auction too?” After observing Xin Youlan disappearing into the yellow light screen, that yellow robed youth relaxed his demeanor and introduced. “This one is Zhang Fengyi, a cultivator of Falling Moon City. How may I address these two?” Towards Han Weiwei and Wei Suo, this yellow robed youth didn’t address them as senior because he was also a Heavenly Circuit Stage level 2 cultivator. Right now, Wei Suo was employing his Secret Concealment art to conceal one layer of his cultivation.
“This one is Ji Li, a cultivator from Spirit Peak City and here to participate in the auction.” Wei Suo offered a look at the yellow robed youth, and randomly spouted a name. “My name is Wei Ya.” What caused Wei Suo to roll his eyes, was that Han Weiwei actually used his surname once again.
“Zhang Fengyi.” Not too far away, another cyan robed cultivator abruptly waved towards this yellow robed youth. It seemed like this yellow robed cultivator had used his real name.
“This one has an appointment with other friends, I shall not disturb you two anymore.” When Zhang Tianyi noticed that person, his eyes flashed with delight. Before parting from Wei Suo and Han Weiwei, he added another sentence. “I can tell that you two rarely frequents Seven Stars City and is rather unfamiliar with this city. For this auction, there should be quite a number of expert figures. Apart from Xin Youlan you must be cautious of, there is another cultivator called Dong Qingyi. That man has an innate Wind Spirit Root, and is the young master of East Victory. His personality is extremely hateful, and it would be best not to provoke him.”
