Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 355

Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 355: VIP auction! (I)

Cai’er shook her head in silence, replying, “I have my Dagger of Samsara, so other equipment is useless to me. Unless it is a perfect fit, I don’t have any urgent need. Give priority to the others. You also have to buy a weapon for yourself. However, it doesn’t have to necessarily be here, instead we can just search on the third floor later on.”

Indeed, Long Haochen yet again urgently needed a new weapon. Thinking of that, he felt depressed. Ever since becoming a Demon Hunter, he had destroyed quite a good number of his weapons. This time, it was the sword Bright Discipline that reached the Glorious Tier which they had acquired with great difficulty, and his Blue Rain, Hibiscus of Light had also been smashed to pieces during the fierce battle against Ah’Bao. Although it was still being nurtured in Yating, it was temporarily unavailable. Thus Long Haochen, due to unfortunate circumstances, currently had no weapon available to use.

Now that their spiritual energy reached five thousand units, their next goal would be to defeat that red skeleton. But how could Long Haochen fight without a weapon? Thus, his top priority was to acquire a heavy sword. But of course, one would be the barest minimum, since he was after all a Retribution Knight as well.

Right at that time, the illumination in the auction hall became dim, until the whole room was cloaked in darkness.

The previously noisy auction hall immediately became silent. All the personnel that could enter in such a heavyweight auction was of high standing and naturally familiar with the rules here.

With a “shi” sound, a pillar of light was launched on the stage, and a crimson-clad girl appeared there out of nowhere.

If the appearance of this girl were to be described, the conclusion would be that she didn’t have the beauty of Cai’er, but the charm of a mature woman. Looking at her smiling face, people would easily get a refreshing feeling. But more oddly, when one looked at her, this person would actually have the feeling that she was directly looking back at him or her.

“Good evening dear honored guests, and welcome to the VIP auction of this month. Today, we prepared quite a few remarkable items for all of you special guests. I hope everyone will get some good assets from today.”

A pleasant voice filled with charm was heard clearly, and touched Long Haochen’s heart. In the rear, one could already hear that the breath of some guests was becoming rougher.

“This girl should have a rare and particular mental strength. She must specialize in the mental attribute.” Long Haochen said in a low voice to the nearby Cai’er.

On his other side, Sima Xian replied with a laugh, “Mental strength specialized users are rare, and people who are this beautiful are hard to see. This Alliance’s Great Auction House is the result of a lot of efforts and energy.”

Han Yu bumped his hand, revealing a pleased smile, “What? So you’ve been seduced? How about trying to pursue her?”

Sima Xian shook his head energetically, “She’s not the type of girl I like.”

This time, Long Haochen couldn’t help but ask with some curiosity, “Sima, what kind of girl do you like then?”

Sima Xian gave an embarrassed smile, “I like those kind of long-haired and pure girls, looking like pure flowers.”

Hearing this reply, everyone broke out in laughter. Chen Ying’er’s didn’t give him the slightest face as she remarked in a low voice with a smile. “How is it that I felt you were speaking about has-drugs-bro! Woah, I didn’t expect that! I thought that you are robust, but I didn’t know you also had this kind of interest.”

“Nonsense! This man doesn’t like men.” Because of the impulse, his voice became noisier, immediately attracting despiteful looks from the surroundings. But fortunately, the auction hall was dark, thus the surrounding people didn’t see clearly from where it came.

On stage, the beautiful woman acted as though nothing had happened, continuing her introduction, “If you are frequently participating in our VIP auction, you should know about all this, but I will introduce myself, to give newcomers a chance to be familiar with me. My name is Ye Weiyang, and I am the chief auctioneer of the Alliance’s Great Auction House. I will the one managing the auctions for today. To avoid having our distinguished customers wait any longer, let us start with the first item.”

As she said that, she retreated to the side of the platform, where two girls were approaching. Right at that time, a white-clad staff member joined Ye Weiyang from the other direction, whispering a few words in her ear.

Ye Weiyang revealed a shocked look, but quickly returned to her usual self, giving a simple nod.

The first item was already up on stage, and Ye Weiyang pulled the cart with a regretful look, “Deep apologies everyone. I have regretful news to inform all guests about. It seems that a mistake happened, and that this article here isn’t the first but the second item of today’s auction. The rest of the items will be presented according to the intended order.”

Meanwhile, clamorous noises exploded, but given that the people here were of considerable status, they were naturally of good background and at least no one shouted abuses.

The regretful expression on the face of Ye Weiyang immediately turned right into a smile, “While I am sorry, I also have to announce that all you esteemed guests should rejoice about some good news, because the item we chose to switch to the first place is very likely to become the most desired item with the highest bids of today’s auction. And it’s quite a rare kind of treasure, even tempting me. If some customer would offer to buy it for me, perhaps I would give my heart to him in exchange.”

Being so beautiful, and having a natural charm combined with mental abilities of attraction, she was a perfect fit to draw in the 80% males present. From hearing that, there were actually people that couldn’t help but shout that they would bid on it and offer it to her.

Of course, these were only words.

Some the frequent honored guests knew about Ye Weiyang’s status. Disregarding her young age, her position in the Alliance’s Great Auction House was extraordinary, and the mere fact that she claimed to possibly give her heart to the one who would be willing to buy this item for her, was a simple proof of the astronomic value of the first item.

Seated, Long Haochen secretly exclaimed in admiration, How worthy of the chief auctioneer of the Alliance’s Great Auction House! This simple few words aroused great interest, allowing one’s imagination to run wild about what the first item would be.

Ye Weiyang made a graceful gesture, hinting the lady pulling the cart to approach.

“I believe that everyone is extremely curious, to know what kind of item we switched to the first position. Just speaking of it, I feel very curious too. That’s because I only heard of this treasure, but never saw one before. However, I believe that everyone here, regardless of whether you are a fighter or a rich merchant, should be extremely interested into it. This is an extraordinary rare treasure, or rather, an even more precious existence than any treasure. Next, let us welcome the mysterious first item of the day.”

“Shi!” Another glint shone abruptly, this time emitting a faint golden color. This was something all the frequent customers from this auction knew, a treatment reserved to important auctions.

The combination of Ye Weiyang’s words and the glitz showed that this first item was not only mysterious, but also extremely valuable.

All kinds of gems appeared on a golden cart that was pulled on stage. The ones pulling the carts were not these two ceremonial girls from before, but a black-haired girl clad in a transparent white dress, looking as elegant as a fairy. Her face carried a little smile and looked extremely pure.

On the contrary, the cart she pulled looked extremely gorgeous with its elegant matched patterns, which instantly attracted the eyes of all the spectators.

In terms of appearance, Ye Weiyang was undoubtedly a bit inferior to this girl clad in the white gown, but her character and charms more than made up for that. On stage, the two girls looked like a rose and a lily standing next to each other. The mere sense of beauty coming out from them aroused the emotions of the whole audience.

Sima Xian opened his eyes wide, giving a dull look to that white-clad girl. Apparently he was in a state of total shock.

Not only him, but the others from the 21st general grade Demon Hunt Squad felt their gaze freeze over that sight.

Han Yu murmured next, “Sima, is that the kind of little pure flower you just spoke about?”

“That… That can’t be! Wow, wow, that’s exactly it! This is the look of the lover in my heart! Am I dreaming? Han Yu, hurry up and pinch me!”

Han Yu violently pinched his leg without retenue, giving Sima Xian a painful feeling, but Sima only revealed an even more excited expression on his face.

“That’s for real! For real! No one can stop me! This girl is mine, I will definitely win her heart with all my strength.”

At that time, Lin Xin returned to his seat after having secretly headed below. Seeing Sima Xian’s excited appearance, he asked in puzzlement, “What happened this time, Sima?”

Chen Ying’er laughed lowly, “He’s just in heat. His target seems to be that pure flower on stage.”

Lin Xin looked dumbfounded, “Sima, are you dreaming? Do you know who that person is?”

Sima Xian gave a puzzled look to Lin Xin, “How could I be dreaming? Don’t tell me you think your brother would be lacking compared to anyone else?”

Lin Xin replied with a laugh, “I can’t be sure of that, but I can certainly tell you that this girl isn’t someone that will be attracted only by one’s rank. Unless she comes to like you, even being a powerhouse of the ninth step would be of no use.”

Long Haochen coughed at that, “Let’s discuss this after the auction ends, have a look for now. Shouldn’t this item be ours?”

Lin Xin nodded quietly, “During auctions, the most attractive items would be the first one and the last. At the time of the first bid, no one will have spent any money and all will have their full buying power, while the last one is generally a good item kept in reserve. The reason why I chose the first spot was to know the value of our sale to determine our budget for today’s purchases. With the top-notch manipulation from Ye Weiyang, and the help I got from Feng Ling’er, not getting a sky high price would prove to be very hard, hehe.”

  • Asi k k


  • gobind singh

    Thanks for the chapter

  • Aeidail

    By the way really didn’t see the love interest for Sima coming that quick.

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • agila0212

    Thank you for the chapter 🙂

  • Some

    Will you be also releasing the regular today??? Still… thanks for the chapter!

    • If today is wednesday for your timezone, sorry, it can probably not be so fast.

      But in my timezone right now, it’s Tuesday past midnight, and I can ascertain that it will be out this ‘today’.

      • Some

        Oh thats ok 🙂 thanks for answering and for you hard work (._.)/

      • Evilage

        If its tuesday past midnight doesnt that make it wednesday? I mean the next day starts after midnight right(rhymes)?

  • Matt

    Ahahahaha, even the author ships Sima Xian and Lin Xin!

    • Robin

      I think you need to clean your glasses and read anew.

      • Matt

        Yeah, I wrote that before I read the whole chapter.

  • Psyside

    So we found a girl for Sima. Now Han Yu is the only one left xD

    • Robin

      Yeah, and baldie needs to work reeeeeeally hard to win this woman.

      • Evilage

        hmm i kinda have a feeling she would fall for LHC or someone else first, after that follows him and finally later falling for sima for saving her or something (i read too many love stories)

        • Jonathan Hurd

          Well that is definitely one way of winning peoples heart, but from what they are saying of her background and LHC’s character I don’t think either of them would be willing to put her into a situation where her life could easily be threatened.

          • Robin

            Exactly, and as the princess of the auction house, she would have guards or an adequate cultivation herself. The chance for her to need salvage from the big, strong man is pretty low. Unless he saves her from other pushy suitors.

          • Evilage

            or she goes with the auction people on a mission to guard and deliver an object to a certain person and they are attacked by demons and overwhelmed with numbers and at the last moment sima saves her and she falls in love

          • Robin

            Possible, but you really read too many love stories. 😛

          • Jonathan Hurd

            To be fair we have seen at least 5 love stories throughout this novel so its hard not to start seeing more, :D.

          • Evilage

            this author loves loves stories i guess
            his first novels main characters were named after himself and his wife apparently

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Well that definitely explains that part. Personally I kind of like the love stories he writes. They all have relatable characters who are trying their hardest for those they hold precious to them.

        • Psyside

          I just hope she isn’t a gold digger. PLS Author. I had enough of gold diggers when i finished readin “The Rise of the Shield Hero”. If he gets a gold digger in. IM DONE!!!!!

          • Evilage

            Oh you read tate no yuusha? Its an amazing story(i only read the manga dho) that princess bitch needs to die.

          • Psyside

            The novel is….. YOU WILL BEG GOD FOR HER TO DIE

          • Evilage

            I read the manga and i was begging to god that she dies

          • Psyside

            Novel she becomes worse and worse and worse

          • Psyside

            This reminds me. If you want a really good manga/novel look up The New Gate its amazing.
            There lives my fav female character. And princess bitch is my least fav one xD

          • Ubermensch

            Is your favorite character the god apostle? She’s awesome.

          • Psyside

            Did Schnee have that tittle?

          • Ubermensch

            I think so, Idk though. I’m talking about giant axe wielding goth loli

          • Ubermensch

            Same here… so much hate, its easy to understand why the main character gets his personality warped.

          • Psyside

            I dont remember a Goth loli in The new gate. The only loli there is Shin’s Elemental Tail when it transforms into a human

  • leopold1983

    Thank you Totobro!

  • Evilage

    Thanks all sponsors for the money, i would give but i’m broke to begin with 😭
    Anyhow new girl, sima and lady x huh, sima being well bold muscle head i wonder how he would win the love of that girl, then again bold muscle head is the trend these days due to a certian one punching hero
    i hope a girl appears for han yu and LHC becomes his wingman, that would be awesome to see.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      Watching LHC try to act as Wing Man would be hilarious to see. He would have to be very careful or he might accidentally attract her away from Han Yu considering his looks and aura.

      • Psyside

        Wouldnt Lin Xin be the wingman here?

        • Jonathan Hurd

          I feel like Lin Xin would be more suited to the charming and talking up role, lol. He also wouldn’t overshadow Han Yu as much as LHC would.

          • Psyside

            ah i missunderstood thought ya ment for Sima not for Han Yu

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Yeah the ordering was a bit weird. i think out of all the guys in the 21st GG DHS using Lin Xin as a Wing Man is probably the best choice. Lin Xin is charming and in love with Li Xin so no real chance he tries to steal the girl. If LHC tried he is more likely than not going to accidentally charm the girl you are pursuing and end up with yet another beauty pursuing him, lol.

          • Luke Confidential

            Or accidentally get her shanked by the Yandere.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            …. Now I kind of want to watch that. Though it feels unlikely that she will hit the top of the Yandere stab list. I think Yating might be at the top with Yue Ye as a close second. Feng Ling’er is going to have to try really hard to convince Cai’er to stab her before those two.

          • Luke Confidential

            Those two are far more valuable. It takes a lot more convincing to stab them than some random auction chick.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            True. Though I would think the Auction Chick would need to do some amazing things to make Cai’er feel the same level of threat that she does from Yating and Yue Ye. So easier to stab but a lot less reason to stab.

          • Psyside

            No i think Yue Ye is second and yating is third. Atlest in my imagination. I got a thing for demon waifu’s xD

    • Enuo Akatsuki

      it would be funny if he won her over in a “brute way” like going wild to protect her or something that reminds of how brute he can be as a priest

  • Zeth

    Thank you Totobro!

  • ZaX

    Thanks for the chapter

  • Anto Wibowo

    So her name is feng ling? Thank you for the chapter!

  • Erebus

    Thanks for the chapter!
