Upon seeing this, the young woman in red clothes checked the leather bag and confirmed that there were a hundred upper grade spirit stones in it. She then picked up the jade box and opened the lid of the box. There were four elixirs in green glow arranged neatly in it.
“These are… cold condensing pills, and they are all of the earth grade!” The young woman in red clothes, who worked in the auction, of course had great knowledge. She could recognize the origin of these elixirs at a glance.
On top of these emerald green elixirs, each of them had four obvious elixir patterns, exuding a refreshing fragrance. These were the genuine earth grade cold condensing pills.
“Yes, these are indeed cold condensing pill.” Liu Ming said blankly. He didn’t have enough spirit stone on his body, so he had to trade in some cold condensing pills.
The young woman in red clothes showed excitement on her face, but her expression changed slightly all of sudden. She seemed to remember the recent rumors in the market.
“Why, are these elixirs not enough? As far as I know, this earth grade cold condensing pill, one is worth at least five hundred thousand spirit stones, and four are just enough to compensate for those two million.” Liu Ming raised his brows and said coldly.
“Mister, please don’t get me wrong. I didn’t mean that. These four elixirs are of course worth the price.” The young woman in red clothes woke up from the shock when she heard the words. She said with a smile on her face.
“Well, if that’s the case, since the money and good are cleared, I will leave with this thousands years old spirit turtle’s blood essence.” Liu Ming said, putting the gourd container on the table into his sleeve. He then stood up and walked out.
“Mister, a moment please, I don’t know where you… get these elixirs from?” Seeing Liu Ming was about to leave, the young woman in red clothes chased him and asked in a hurry.
“Why, your auction house even needs to find out the origin of things when collecting items?” Liu Ming said with a cold face.
“No, I was just simply asking.” The young woman in red clothes barely forced a smile on her face.
“I bought these elixirs from a store somewhere. I have nothing more to say.” After Liu Ming said, he strode out without looking at the young woman.
This attitude of not cherishing beauty made the young woman in red clothes annoyed. After Liu Ming walked out completely, her mood gradually calmed down.
After standing there for a while, the young woman in red clothes suddenly kept the leather bag and jade box on the table and turned to the other side of the hall.
Liu Ming left the side hall and stood in a tunnel leading to the auction venue. Seeing that no one was chasing him behind him, he sighed slightly and smiled bitterly.
From the changes in the expression of the young woman in red clothes, he knew that the Thousands Association Chamber of Commerce must also be investigating the cold condensing pill in the market.
Selling four earth grade cold condensing pills just like this must have aroused their suspicion. But for the sake of thousands years old spirit turtle’s blood essence, he couldn’t be bothered much.
Moreover, with the strength of the Thousands Association Chamber of Commerce, no one knew how many alchemy masters they had. Although the cold condensing pill had fewer people refining it, it wasn’t to the extent of ruining their reputation.
What’s more, he changed his appearance to participate in the big auction, so he naturally had less worries.
While thinking about it, the sound of footsteps interrupted Liu Ming’s thoughts.
“Senior, is the transaction finished?” It was the previous servant in green clothes. He met Liu Ming and hurriedly saluted.
“En, is the auction over?” Liu Ming asked with a slight smile.
“Now the final auction is underway…” A clear voice came from the venue as the servant in green clothes said this.
“8 million spirit stones!” It was the voice of the young woman in purple clothes before.
Liu Ming nodded to the servant in green clothes and walked out quickly.
At the venue, the young woman in purple clothes of the Ouyang Family and the Real Pellet State powerhouse named Mr. Qing were still undergoing fierce bidding and had raised the price to more than 8 million.
Liu Ming was thinking something in his mind, so he didn’t bother about the heated atmosphere in the venue and glanced at the entrance of the venue.
However, it seemed that the door would only be opened when the auction ended.
While everyone’s attention was focused on the auction in the field, Liu Ming quietly paced near the entrance, found a place to sit down casually, and waited quietly for the end of the conference.
After another quarter of an hour, the auction finally came to an end. The young woman in purple clothes of Ouyang Family finally bought the magic weapon, Luo Yu Blade with the price of 9.3 million spirit stones, winning Mr. Qing and the young man in green robe by a lot.
The middle-aged man with fair skin immediately announced the end of the big auction after another generous statement.
As the gate of the venue opened in a rumble, Liu Ming immediately got up and mixed in the flow of people, and he quickly left the auction hall.
Along the way, he went into several small alleys, then he disguised himself into a horsed-face muscular man and left the market.
After confirming that there was no one following him, Liu Ming changed back his face in a secluded place. After that, he quietly returned to Bai Lian Pavilion from the other entrance of the market.
In the third floor secret room, Liu Ming sat cross-legged on a yellow futon. He was carefully looking at an inch-size translucent gourd-shaped container in his hand.
The gourd was inscribed with a purple weird rune mark, and there was less than half gourd golden liquid inside. It was the ten drops of thousands years old spirit turtle’s blood essence he auctioned with five earth grade elixirs.
After observing for a while, he took out a jade box from his chest. He picked up the mind imitation insect egg and gently held it in his hand with his eyes closed. He started pouring spiritual power into the Celestial Tablet in his sea of consciousness.
The next moment, there was a humming sound in the ears. After his vision blacked out, he went into the mysterious space again.
“Senior Luo Hu.” In front of Liu Ming, a young man in a green robe stood in front of him calmly.
“I didn’t expect you to get the blood essence of thousands years old spirit turtle so quickly; you even got ten drops. It seems that it should be no problem to hatch this mind imitation insect egg.” Luo Hu said lightly.
“I also hope that senior can tell how to use this thousands years old spirit turtle’s blood essence.” Liu Ming bowed slightly and asked straightforwardly.
Luo Hu did not answer. He just waved his hand, and a jade slip flew out from his sleeve toward Liu Ming.
Liu Ming reached out to catch the jade slip and put it on his forehead right away.
Xia ling grass, blue water, hundred flower grass, hua ying fruit……
The materials recorded in the jade slip were the auxiliary materials used to prepare this supplementary spiritual fluid, but most of them were common materials in the market; it should be hard to collect them.
“If there is nothing else, please go back.” Luo Hu said, raising his hand slightly to drive Liu Ming out of the mysterious space.
“Senior, wait a minute. Please get rid of the demonic qi on this mind imitation insect again.” Liu Ming said hurriedly, for fear of being driven away by Luo Hu in the next moment.
Luo Hu opened his eyes and stood up.
“I really forgot about it. It has been several months since the last time I drained the true demonic aura. The true demonic aura on the mind imitation insect eggs should have recovered. Give it to me then.” Luo Hu glanced at Liu Ming and said blankly.
Hearing this, Liu Ming stretched out one hand and opened his five fingers, revealing the insect egg in his palm.
As Luo Hu moved his finger slightly, the insect egg flew up from Liu Ming’s hand and slowly fell into his hand.
Then he used some kind of mystic arts like last time to absorb the demonic qi on the insect egg into his sleeve.
“Okay, you can go now.” Luo Hu moved his index finger slightly and flicked the insect egg. After a flash in the air, the insect egg quickly flew into Liu Ming’s hand.
Before Liu Ming could say anything, he felt a gust of wind coming at him. The next moment, the scenery in front of him became blurred, and he had returned to the secret room.
“This Luo Hu is really unpredictable.” After Liu Ming said to himself, he collected the secret room enchantment and left the secret room.
At the moment, he only needed to gather the auxiliary materials, then he could brew them into the spiritual fluids.
In just one day, Liu Ming collected some other auxiliary materials from several medicinal stores and returned to the secret room on the third floor of the Bai Lian Pavilion.
After some preparations, Liu Ming immediately sat cross-legged and started to mix the spiritual fluid according to the method described by jade slip.
He first stirred and ground a dry auxiliary material and put it in a small bowl, then he poured a little blue water to make a blue-brown medicinal liquid. Finally, he took out the little purple gourd and dripped the thousands years old spirit turtle’s blood essence slowly into it.
A drop of golden blood essence was dripped into the small bowl. The originally calm blue-brown medicinal liquid suddenly rippled and a faint golden light appeared.
With all the ten drops of blood essence blended into it, the blue-brown liquid medicine had turned into golden brown. The golden light had become a bit dazzling. At the same time, a burst of heating rushed out of the surface of the spiritual fluid.
Liu Ming touched it with a finger curiously, and a stream of heat immediately penetrated into his body from the tip of the finger. It flowed wildly across his meridians, making all his bones and limbs feel comfortable.
Liu Ming was overjoyed in his heart. He hurriedly made a gesture to control it. After a warm feeling, the heat slowly dissipated, and his body always became calm.
At this time, the spiritual power in his body seemed to increase a little, as if he had just taken a tonic.
This yuan liquid is really extraordinary, just a touch of it will have such an effect.
As Liu Ming was satisfied, he took out the mind imitation insect egg and carefully put it in a small bowl to soak it in the spiritual fluid.
As soon as the insect egg was immersed in the golden brown liquid, strands of golden water vapor desperately surged into the egg. The insect egg suddenly became alive, and it swelled slowly at a speed visible to the eyes.
After this phenomenon lasted for about 10 minutes, the insect egg finally stopped absorbing the liquid and became a little swollen. It was floating quietly on the water.
Liu Ming did not leave the secret room; he just sat by the side to quietly see the tiny changes in the insect egg in the small bowl.
A few days later, although the insect egg no longer absorbed the stands of water vapor, under the nurture of the spiritual fluid, the color of the insect egg’s surface gradually changed from light green to light golden.
A few more days passed.
“Kara“, there was an inaudible, crisp sound.
A slender crack suddenly appeared from the side of the insect egg in the small bowl. There was a light golden transparent bug with the size of a thumb struggling to slowly crawl out of the crack, and it swallowed the golden spiritual fluid at the same time.
Seeing this, Liu Ming flashed a hint of joy in his eyes, but he didn’t disturb the insect and continued to observe.
