Hearing this price, Fang Linyan was overjoyed and said faintly,
“I think that weapon will sell for 23,000 common points, and my current gap is 14,000 points. Without this weapon, I wouldn’t sell Governor’s Roar.”
Fire almost burst out of Wild Cat’s eyes,
“14,000 points! You might as well go robbing!”
Shania said with a sullen expression,
“Well, Wrench, the real value of this gun is only 4000 to 5000 common points, and we are still short of common points. I have a scroll here, can it be used to deduct 3000 common points?”
After speaking, she showed the attributes of the scroll.
Basic Melee LV2
Effect: Let you master Basic Melee LV2
Requirements: Strength 7 points or more.
Explanation: After learning, you will get Basic Melee LV2 which will improve your close combat ability. It is roughly equivalent to the experience of an adult man who has continued to practice ordinary fighting for a year.
Explanation: To learn this scroll, 1000 common points are required.
Seeing this scroll, Fang Linyan’s heart moved slightly, but he shook his head and smiled,
“Shania, I’m really not picky, but your scroll even worths 3000 common points? As long as I have time and money, Basic Melee LV2 can actually be easily improved in the real world.”
“I’m sure that many of the contestants have already obtained this thing when coming in, let alone it has a cost of 1000 common points! We are also temporary teammates anyway, so is it good to offer such a price to me?”
Before Shania spoke, Wild Cat slapped the table fiercely and said angrily,
“What did you say!?”
Fang Linyan smiled,
“Calm down, calm down! I didn’t intend to sell it. You keep asking me to sell; you don’t have to buy it too.”
The atmosphere in the reception room suddenly became awkward, Fang Linyan stood up and smiled,
“There’s an old saying in my hometown that remains friendly even if there is no deal. There is no absolute in this world. We can’t make a deal this time, but it doesn’t mean we can’t trade again in the future. I’ll go first. You can make your choice slowly.”
After hearing Fang Linyan’s words, Shania barely squeezed a smile, stood up and shook hands with Fang Linyan, watching him walk into the trading room again.
In fact, what the 2 didn’t know was that Fang Linyan’s palm in his trouser pocket was also full of cold sweat. When negotiating, the 2 parties were actually engaged in a fierce mind game. Who could take the dominance would have a huge advantage in the negotiation.
According to Fang Linyan’s observations, he always felt that although Wild Cat seemed to really want this gun, Shania, who seemed calm, was actually more interested in this gun. Among these two people, Shania was obviously the dominant one.
That was why he suddenly changed his mind and raised the price of 10,000 points to 14,000 points!
Fang Linyan returned to the trading room and sat down calmly. He was now sure that the other party would come to him again. If there was not much time left for shopping, then they would offer the reserve price directly in the end.
Of course, Fang Linyan was also ready for the other party to give up, but that didn’t matter. He could also use Team Leader Sean to restart the negotiation, but in that case, he would definitely lose the dominant and inevitably have to lower the price. This was not what he wanted to see.
About another 5 minutes later, a message popped up on his retinas. It was actually sent by Team Leader Sean. After seeing this message popped up, Fang Linyan completely relaxed. Although he had not clicked it yet, he could roughly guess the content inside.
Sean didn’t send many words. The main point was probably everyone still had to work as a team for quite some time, Shania and Wild Cat felt that 14,000 points are really too high. They could gather 12,000 points at most, so what did Fang Linyan think about the price.
Fang Linyan smiled, knowing that they were all waiting for a reply at this time, so he said to meet in the reception room, neither saying to sell or not to sell.
Fang Linyan deliberately waited for 5 minutes before going out. When he went out, the other 3 people were waiting there. Wild Cat was holding a magazine and didn’t look at him. His slightly trembling hands showed that he was not at ease. Shania crossed her arms; she looked at Fang Linyan and nodded slightly. Sean still looked over with a serious face.
Fang Linyan came to the empty seat, he smiled and said,
“Time is tight, I will make a long story short. 12,000 points… is of course impossible.”
After hearing him say these words, Wild Cat suddenly trembled; Shania and Sean also frowned tightly, but Fang Linyan continued,
“Since the leader has spoken out, let’s take it at 11,000 points, but you have to give me the scroll of Basic Melee LV2. If my friend survives, he can use it.”
Such a turning point suddenly relaxed the atmosphere in the entire meeting room.
Sean grinned, walked forward and patted Fang Linyan on the shoulder. Obviously, Fang Linyan’s words made him look good.
The hostility in the eyes of Wild Cat and Shania wasn’t so obvious as before after they knew that this person knew not to force too much on a deal. To be honest, they were mentally prepared to buy it at 14,000 points if it really didn’t work. Now that Fang Linyan not only agreed to the deal, but he also took the initiative to cut the price by 1,000 points. It immediately gave them an illusion of getting 3,000 points discount.
As for the scroll of Basic Melee LV2, both Wild Cat and Shania considered it a free gift. It was indeed worthless as Fang Linyan said.
But the 2 of them didn’t know that this scroll was of little significance to others, but to Fang Linyan, it was very worth it!! It was not an exaggeration to describe it by giving roasted meat in the snow.
Because it represented valuable immediate combat power, and it was also the melee combat power that Fang Linyan urgently needed! Before, he was completely blank in this field.
Not only that, if Fang Linyan exercised in accordance with the normal procedures, it was even more distant for Fang Linyan to reach the Basic Melee of LV2, because his weak body simply couldn’t support a large amount of exercise, not to mention accumulating experience for several months in person-to-person training?
After getting this scroll, Fang Linyan returned to the exclusive VIP room. He spent 1000 common points learning right away. A lot of information and precautions about Basic Melee surged into his mind. All his muscles were also twitching slightly. Apparently, muscle memory was implanting… He closed his eyes slightly, digesting the sudden knowledge.
After a while, Fang Linyan nodded slightly, completely mastering Basic Melee LV2, and put his mind on the auction again.
Then he called Ruto to ask for a few details. After a while, he had considered everything he could think of in his mind. Finally, he perfected his plan, then reopened Mysterious Treasure Auction and muttered meaningfully,
“The first stage is over, sir. I’m back again, let’s start the decisive match…”
At the same time,
On another planet in a distant galaxy.
The light on this planet was not strong. There were light gray clouds floating in the sky. The leaves and rhizomes of the plants looked like dead human hair. They looked lifeless. On the contrary, there were lead-grey long beard-like plants growing very vigorously on the ground.
This place was like a huge and dead tomb. People on this planet would even become gloomy because of it.
But now, the dead silence on this planet was broken by bursts of gunfire.
Following the source of the gunfire, a three-person squad was moving forward in a battle formation. They were wearing self-powered metal exoskeleton armor, walking at a slow speed while shooting at quick-moving creatures.
These creatures made hoarse calls in the dense forest. Their appearance couldn’t be seen clearly. It could only be seen that their skin was very rough which seemed to be protected by an exoskeleton. Their running posture was very strange, but they couldn’t get close due to the suppressive fire of the team.
There was a creature that seemed to be unwilling of being suppressed, and it jumped out suddenly, but it was hit by continuous bullets in the air. It kept rolling on the ground. Green blood flowed out from it, and it turned into white smoke after touching the fallen leaves on the ground. It finally convulsed to death.
Suddenly, several more black monsters rushed over from a distance and joined these monsters in the chasing squad. They immediately formed an encirclement to the squad.
But after seeing this scene, the team leader was not surprised and rejoiced. He immediately called a few words in the intercom, and a virtual screen immediately appeared in his palm, showing the holographic map nearby. The red dots and green dots on the map showed the real-time situation of the enemies and allies.
The leader quickly clicked on each red dot on the holographic map, then he suddenly stretched out his hand to make a fist, seeming to be activating a certain skill!
Then a dozen long spear-like lights descended from the sky, pinning these black monsters to the ground. The monsters burned in dazzling golden flames. These monsters struggled desperately to no avail. Only a thick bone was left in a short period of time! The bones were still in a painful and struggling posture.
After seeing this scene, several black monsters that had gathered in the distance screamed and left quickly. Obviously, the death of their companions gave them a huge impact.
TL: Who are these guys? Will Fang Linyan win the bid with an extra 12,000 points?
