Liu Ming smiled slightly, stopped, took out a porcelain bottle and threw it back.
The woman in white clothes raised her eyebrow like she was dissatisfied with Liu Ming’s impolite behavior. When she opened the stopper, her beautiful eyes suddenly lit up.
The bottle contained 5 thumb-sized emerald green elixirs. The texture looked smooth and clear. The elixirs emitted a slightly cold medicinal fragrance. On each elixir, there were 5 silver elixir patterns.
“This is a cold condensing pill, and… it’s an earth grade elixir!” The woman in white clothes murmured, covering her lips lightly.
The woman immediately realized her gaffe. After her face blushed a little, she quickly changed her expression.
“How do you like this gift?” Liu Ming stood with his hands behind his back and said lightly.
“Not bad, the earth grade cold condensing pill is very rare, and the value is indeed high. It has reached the standard for participating in the exchange meeting. Please come with me.” The woman in white clothes took a different look at Liu Ming. She walked forward a few steps, kept the porcelain bottle, and said so.
After speaking, the woman walked from Liu Ming’s side to the front, took Liu Ming to the front of a white jade wall.
The woman in white clothes stretched out her hand and pressed it on the wall, a burst of white light rippled. A stone gate full of runes appeared out of thin air.
“Mister, please come in.” The woman in white clothes pushed open the stone door and made a gesture of inviting in. Liu Ming walked in without hesitation.
Behind the stone gate was a spacious corridor. At the end of the corridor, there was faint white light flashing, it seemed to be a hall.
The corridor was not long; they quickly reached the end, and a spacious main hall appeared in front of Liu Ming.
In the middle of the hall was a huge disk-shaped table. A dozen mahogany chairs were sparsely placed around the table. The chairs were all covered with golden silk embroidered soft cushions.
There were already many cultivators with different dresses sitting on the chairs. Seeing Liu Ming coming in, a few people glanced over, then they continued to do their own things.
Liu Ming was stunned. Most of the cultivators present were at the Condensation Period. They were mainly in the later stage realm. There 2 Crystallization Period cultivators who looked calm.
Thinking of this, Liu Ming immediately walked to an empty chair and sat down. Soon, a maid came to serve the spirit tea.
“Mr. Ye, the exchange will take a while before it starts. Please wait a while.” A fragrant wind came from the ear. The woman in white clothes leaned over Liu Ming’s ear and said softly.
Liu Ming frowned subconsciously, then he nodded calmly and took a sip of tea.
The intimacy between them shook those who knew about the woman in white clothes. They couldn’t help but secretly look at Liu Ming. They were all speculating about his origin.
Liu Ming naturally noticed all this, but he didn’t bother about this much.
In the next few moments, 2 more Condensation Period cultivators walked into the hall and sat down.
Everyone here didn’t mean to talk to each other. They either closed their eyes to rest their minds or sat leisurely, waiting quietly for the exchange meeting to begin.
After waiting for more than half an hour, a middle-aged cultivator in a big red robe walked out of the hall and sat on the main seat of the round table.
At this moment, all the cultivators on the scene cast their eyes on the middle-aged man in a red robe.
“This person must be the elder of Ruyi Trading, Fu Yunzhi. Ruyi Trading is a branch of Thousands Association Chamber of Commerce. This person actually presides over this exchange meeting. It seems that a lot of good things will appear this time.” 2 cultivators talked quietly.
Liu Ming moved his ears. Hearing this, his heart was moved. At this moment, the middle-aged cultivator on the main seat announced loudly,
“Welcome all fellow friends to participate in this exchange meeting. I’m Fu Yunzi, and I will be the host today. It is a great honor to see all fellow friends here. It’s almost time now, let’s start now. Now you can take out your things and briefly introduce them, then you can tell what items you want to exchange or how much spirit stones. After that, you can trade on the spot.”
It was not their first time participating in the exchange meeting, so they were all familiar with the process.
Not long after the middle-aged cultivator said, a muscular man in blue clothes took the lead to stand up. This person was 1 of the 2 Crystallization Period cultivators.
“In that case, let’s start with me.” The muscular man in blue clothes walked to the middle table in a few steps, took out a storage talisman, and shook it. After a flash of light, a few items appeared on the table.
There were minerals, spirit grass, spiritual weapons, etc., all seemed to be wrapped in spiritual power; they weren’t trivial stuff.
“1 fire soul iron stone, 1 sky spiritual grass, a 33 enchantments superb spiritual weapon…”
The muscular man in blue clothes briefly introduced the items while glanced across everyone in the hall. He then cleared his throat and said,
“I won’t be greedy. I want to trade the fire soul iron stone and sky spiritual grass for 2 bottles of Condensation Period elixir, but it must be the top grade elixir. I want to exchange this superb spiritual weapon for a 500 years old poisonous rune wood… “
After speaking, the muscular man in blue clothes turned back and sat down.
These things were rare treasures. The fire soul iron stone was the best material for forging fire attribute superb spiritual weapon; the sky spiritual grass was the main spiritual material to refine the mystic heart pill; the value of the superb spiritual weapon was needless to mention.
There were already many people present with bright eyes, and some even whispered to each other directly.
However, no one did the exchange yet because everyone knew that they had to see all the available items before making a deal. Otherwise, they would be regret if they missed something better.
“I’m not as wealthy as this fellow friend. I only brought a small bottle of qiongyu liquid. I want to exchange for a fire toad beast’s core or spirit stones.” A veiled female cultivator beside the muscular man in blue clothes stood up and said with a soft laugh.
As she spoke, she launched a light, and a clear bottle appeared in the middle of the table. The liquid inside was milky and gelatinous.
This time, the other people’s reaction was very calm; only 1 or 2 people looked at it longer.
A look of disappointment flashed in the eyes of the veiled female cultivator, then she sat down silently.
Liu Ming’s eyes moved. The holy beast’s egg had been spiritless from incubation until now.
The effect of this qiongyu liquid was similar to that of thousands of years old spirit turtle blood essence. It was a substance that replenished essence. Although the effect was far inferior to the thousands years old spirit turtle blood essence, he could buy it to replenish the octopus.
Next, cultivators stood up and took out their items one by one and placed them on the table. The atmosphere in the hall gradually heated up.
Although these things were good, it wasn’t what Liu Ming wanted unfortunately. He couldn’t help but feel a little disappointed.
Soon it was his turn. He immediately stood up, walked to the round table, put a porcelain bottle, and said faintly,
“Five earth grade cold condensing pill, I want to exchange for some spiritual materials or spiritual plants that have an auxiliary effect in advancing to the Crystallization Period.”
As soon as everyone saw the cold condensing pill, they also looked extremely surprised. Even Fu Yunzi, who hosted the exchange meeting, couldn’t help but look at it more. However, after hearing the request later, a hint of complicated expression flashed in his eyes.
Although the earth grade cold condensing pill was also an excellent elixir to break through the bottleneck, the rare treasures that could assist in advancing the Crystallization Period were also unattainable for most people present. Even if they had them, they wouldn’t trade them easily.
Seeing this scene, Liu Ming’s heart sank slightly.
“I don’t have the spiritual items needed by the mister. I wonder if I can trade with spirit stones? As for the price, I will surely satisfy mister.” Someone couldn’t help asking.
“I only exchange for spiritual materials, or if you can provide some useful information, I will definitely reward you with a lot of spirit stones.” Liu Ming shook his head and said.
The people present suddenly looked at each other; no one spoke for a while.
A wry smile flashed in Liu Ming’s heart. He he turned back and sat down.
“I have a ‘yunyang ganoderma’. Does it meet your requirements?” At this moment, a voice sounded.
When Liu Ming heard this, he was surprised and happy. He looked up and saw a thin and tall old man. He was 1 of the Crystallization Period Cultivator. Because he was sitting far back, so he hadn’t displayed his items yet.
As he said, the thin and tall old man took out a red wooden box from his waist, opened the lid, and a red mist spread. There was a half-foot-sized strange glossy ganoderma that was still entangled with a red mist.
Liu Ming stared at it for a while, and he couldn’t help but nod slightly. This grass was indeed exactly the same as the yunyang ganoderma recorded in the ancient books.
Just as he was about to speak, the thin and tall old man suddenly waved his hand and said faintly,
“However, if you only want to use 5 earth grade cold condensing pills to exchange, it is impossible. Double that, 10 earth grade cold condensing pills.”
As soon as this statement came out, everyone else in the room couldn’t help but roll their eyes. The price of 10 cold condensing pills was enough to exchange for 5 superb spiritual weapons. Its value was far more than the yunyang ganoderma.
Liu Ming’s face turned gloomy. He said coldly, disregarding the old man’s Crystallization Period’s cultivation,
“Senior shouldn’t be too greedy. This earth grade cold condensing pill, each one is worth more than 500,000 spirit stones. Although yunyang ganoderma is also precious and rare, with such a length, its market price will never exceed 2 million spirit stones.”
Although he wanted this Yangzhi grass, he would not be blackmailed.
“At least 7 earth grade cold condensing pill, otherwise the offer will be canceled.” The thin and tall old man thought a little and lowered some prices.
Liu Ming’s face was gloomy/ This thin and tall old man was obviously scamming him, but it was impossible for him to let this yunyang ganoderma go.
“I only 6 six cold condensing pills, plus 500,000 spirit stones.” After a while, Liu Ming took out a cold condensing pill and a leather bag full of spirit stones.
Will the old man ask for more? This exchange meeting doesn’t seem to fruitful to Liu Ming 🤔
