Soon, the 4 light clusters brought them into the Temporary Sales Point No. 211. The interior was silver-gray. There was a curved corridor in front. The walls were very smooth. It can be said to be seamless like glass art, but it was exceptionally sturdy.
On the top of the ceiling, golden plant tendrils and leaves hang down. They first looked like ornaments, but after Fang Linyan reached out and touched them, he found that the tendrils would actually wriggle on their own as if they were living creatures. On the floor, there were also a few indicator lights shining; they lighted up as everyone arrived. The shape of the indicator lights was like eyes. There was a faint fragrance in the air which was indescribably nice to smell.
The atmosphere inside the whole sales point gave people a mysterious, quiet and serene style.
After entering the sales point about 20 meters, they found themselves in a small living room. In the center was a translucent table with an ashtray and a peculiar fruit on it, similar to grapes, but it turned translucent from time to time.
Surrounding the table were 4 armchairs. The chairs were exquisitely crafted. They were decorated with golden red as the base and black drapery. However, most of the patterns on it were a smiling sun with curly beards. The mysterious atmosphere was quite strong.
Then, around the living room, there were 4 small blue rooms. This small room was like being carved out of blue crystal, but the door of the room was a translucent frosted door. If someone entered, a silhouette of the figure could be seen.
After arriving here, the light clusters below them disappeared, and a gentle prompt sounded in their minds again,
“Dear contestants, if you want to trade, enter the small blue room beside. This is the trading room. Friends who have finished trading can come to the central meeting room to wait. Of course, if you have something to discuss, you can also temporarily interrupt the trade and come to the central meeting room.”
“Then, the trade officially begins!”
As soon as the prompt sound ended, Fang Linyan noticed that a 59:59 second countdown appeared on the upper right of his retinas. He nodded to the rest of the people, then he walked toward the blue trading room beside. At this moment, Wild Cat suddenly stopped Fang Linyan; his eyes looked a little fiery,
“Wrench…? Is your shotgun for sale?”
Fang Linyan thought for a moment,
“For this question, I can only answer you after 10 minutes or so.”
Wild Cat took a deep breath,
“Okay, I’ll wait for you here for 10 minutes.”
Fang Linyan nodded and went to the door of the small blue room and walked in.
When he entered it, he immediately noticed 1 thing; this trading room was much larger than it looked outside. There seemed to be only a chair made up of light patterns in the room. It looked quite translucent and illusory, but after trying to sit on it, it felt very solid like a normal chair.
Not only that, after Fang Linyan sat down, he immediately noticed that a coffee table appeared on the opposite side of him, then a woman sitting on the chair gradually appeared on the opposite side of the coffee table. She was charming and beautiful with watery eyes. She wore a black suit OL skirt; had long legs with black silk stockings; had a hot figure. She belonged to the kind of woman that a lone man would have some indescribable thoughts on at night.
She smiled and said to Fang Linyan,
“Welcome, dear contestant, please rest assured, I am the receptionist AI04 Xiao Jie. We are now in a separate confined space. No information will be leaked out. It is very safe. I hope to have a good time with you, can we start now?”
Fang Linyan secretly thought in his mind that if the lights here were changed to pink and combined with her opening remarks, he might have misunderstood that this would be the shop 200 meters to the right of his house! Fortunately, the rapidly beating numbers in front let him get rid of distracting thoughts, and he calmly replied,
“En, let’s get started!… what services do you have here? Bah, no, what do you have for sale here?”
AI04 Xiao Jie reached out and pointed, and a light blue translucent service list popped up in the space next to her. There were many items from top to bottom. Detailed introductions were written, and the price code was marked at the end.
Fang Linyan discovered that the first currency they used to check out turned out to be something called “crystal coin” and the second currency was called “light energy block”. He immediately said with a guilty conscience,
“Sorry, I don’t have the currency you use here.”
AI04 Xiao Jie smiled sweetly,
“It’s okay. We also admit the common points in the Space as a currency. The ratio of exchange it to crystal coins is 10:1. However, if you use common points to trade, then we will only buy your items with common points.”
Fang Linyan said,
Then he started to browse the list above, but he found that many of the things above were not useful to him.
For example, the most expensive thing was called a hedging high-energy engine. It was the most common spacecraft engine in the third generation at present. It could also be used to transform tanks. The price of this thing was as high as 2,000 crystal coins, but why would this be useful to Fang Linyan? Could he use it to smack people…
After a quick glance, Fang Linyan sighed disappointedly because there were many things in the above list that were similar to hedging high-energy engines. It seemed overpowered, but he didn’t actually know their real purposes. There were only 2 things worth getting:
The first one was called a spiral smart syringe. The description was syringe, but it was just like a band-aid or sanitary napkin. Just stick it on his skin, then put the potion into it, which is very convenient. He could set the HP percentage threshold to automatically inject the healing potion.
This thing looked a bit useless because the potion could be used through the mind, and the speed wasn’t slow.
However, there was a special explanation on the back of this item, that was, the response speed of this syringe was quite fast. How fast was it? For example, within a few tenths of a few seconds after you are shot, it could determine whether his HP had dropped below the threshold, then use it directly, even if he was sleeping, paralyzed, stunned, etc. This was very powerful.
Not only that, using the spiral smart syringe to heal had a 33% chance of being extremely effective; it increased the recovered HP by an additional 50%. This special effect was also very nice.
However, Fang Linyan also found a row of small fonts in the lower left corner of the descriptions: This item had a certain chance of failure after 3 uses. It could be repaired for a fee. He felt very familiar with these descriptions…
The second thing was called the parachute cloak (repair). As the name suggested, it could slow down the speed of jumping from a high place and let the user land safely, but there were restrictions to use it. Even worse, there was a clear description that there was a risk of damage, so the user could only use it when he was desperate.
There was one more thing that was valuable, but Fang Linyan didn’t want to exchange it.
The name of this thing was very beautiful, it was called Afterlife. Its explanation was to let the enemy go to the afterlife quickly.
However, after a closer look at the introduction, he was very speechless. It turned out that this thing was a button-sized bomb, and its power was extremely amazing. It was almost impossible for creatures within 10 meters to survive.
However, to activate this bomb requires spirit energy. In simple terms, the user first dedicates his spirit to detonate the bomb, then it causes horrible indiscriminate damage to the surrounding 10 meters. However, the enemy still has a certain chance to completely exempt this damage.
In other words, once the user decides to use this thing, the enemy may not die, but he will definitely die first… Eh hem, after seeing this, Fang Linyan really felt a curse word stuck in his throat.
After seeing the prices of these 3 items, Fang Linyan deeply understood why it was called black market.
Spiral smart injector=10000 common points
Parachute cloak (repair)=13000common points
Afterlife=14999 common points
After hurriedly looking at the menu on the screen again, Fang Linyan said impatiently,
“Are you only selling these things?”
The woman opposite seemed to know that he would have this question, and she said with a calm smile,
“There are some special products, but you can’t browse them at your current level.”
Fang Linyan frowned and said,
“You even classify guests here?”
AI04 Xiao Jie smiled and said,
“Of course, you have not had any successful trade with us yet, so your customer level at this time is an ordinary customer. When the trade volume between us has increased to a certain level, then you can be promoted to VIP customers. VIP customers not only has a special shopping area, but they will even get discounts when shopping and services such as escorting you to a designated place after shopping.”
Fang Linyan immediately caught the meaning behind “trade”,
“Wait, will items I sell also be counted as the trade volumn?”
AI04 Xiao Jie nodded politely and said,
But obviously, Fang Linyan knew that they didn’t seem to have any confidence in what good things they could buy this time, but Fang Linyan also felt that there were too many scraps with him, so he might as well try if he could sell them. He asked,
“How do I sell things?”
AI04 Xiao Jie pointed, and a strange tray with a faint light appeared beside,
“You just put the things you want to sell on it.”
Fang Linyan thought for a while. He first put the 800 euros obtained from Fang’s bloody box, then a clear glowing font prompt appeared on the top of the tray,
“A high-value currency with resentment. It is still stained with traces of time and space turbulence. The estimated price is 120 crystal coins/1200 common points. Do you want to sell it?”
TL: Currency with resentment and time and space turbulence? Then maybe Fang Linyan has something that the sales point is looking for 🤨
