Starting With A Space Battleship - Chapter 40
Chapter 40: Slave Market
After the excitement, Li Xiaonian calmed down.
“The desert area is 1,900 kilometers away from Blood Demon City. Without equipment as powerful as Earth Dragon One, it will take me at least several days to go back and forth, and I may even accidentally die on the way.”
“Forget it. I’m not in a hurry to search for the underground castle. Anyway, no one can grab the desert from me in three months.”
After making the decision, Li Xiaonian came to the slave market.
With the experience of his previous life, he might be able to buy some NPCs with great potential here.
The slave market was huge.
Two hundred-meter streets were crowded with people. The shops here only sold one kind of goods, which were slaves.
“Lv35, desolator, with great combat power, only costs 100 gold coins. Anyone want him? The price is so cheap.”
“Blood Elf, lv3, although he’s low-level, his price is cheap. Come take a look.”
“A level-10 Lava Lord is on sale.”
Li Xiaonian walked through the crowd, looking left and right.
Suddenly, a man and woman holding hands were walking at him. The man was handsome and the woman was beautiful and adorable.
Li Xiaonian looked at the two awkwardly, so did they at him.
“Haha, what a coincidence. Today is a nice day,” Li Xiaonian touched his nose and said awkwardly.
“Yeah, what a small world.”
The speaker was Ling Baifei, who was staring at him a bit angrily, and the woman next to him was Cheng Bingyu, the prettiest girl in their school and their classmate.
When Cheng Bingyu saw Li Xiaonian, her face flushed, and she broke free from Ling Baifei’s palm.
Ling Baifei looked at Li Xiaonian triumphantly, grabbed Cheng Bingyu’s white, delicate hand again, and said proudly, “You read it right. Bingyu is my girlfriend now.”
Cheng Bingyu struggled a bit, but acquiesced.
“Congratulations.” Li Xiaonian forced a smile.
Familiar with Li Xiaonian, Ling Baifei noticed that Li Xiaonian’s attitude was a bit strange. He was a bit puzzled but didn’t ask him why, and simply said, “Didn’t you promise to come to me as soon as you come to the Blood Demon City? I said I’ve got your back. But since you’re in the slave market, it must have been a while since you arrived at the Blood Demon City, right?”
Li Xiaonian shrugged. “Believe it or not, it hasn’t been long since I arrived at the city.”
And he immediately sent a friend request to Ling Baifei.
Ling Baifei quickly accepted his friend request. Now in Li Xiaonian’s friend list, only [lv41, Lingjue, Evolva (Ling Baifei)] was in a contactable state, and all his friends in Skyfire couldn’t be contacted because they weren’t in the same region with him.
Seeing that Li Xiaonian was only level ten, Ling Baifei laughed triumphantly. “I’m already level-41, way stronger than you. You need to work harder.”
Li Xiaonian rolled his eyes at Ling Baifei. “What’s the big deal? if the level represents everything, haven’t those 60 or 70-level players already been invincible?”
“Anyway, my level is higher than you, and I’m stronger than you.”
“Alright. End of the conversation.” Li Xiaonian pretended to be angry. “I’m leaving.”
Ling Baifei knew that Li Xiaonian didn’t want to disturb his date, and grabbed Li Xiaonian. “No, you’re not going anywhere. Let’s go shopping together.” After that, he turned to look at Cheng Bingyu. “Bingyu, you don’t mind it, right?”
Cheng Bingyu looked at Li Xiaonian and joked, “Everyone in the school knows that you are best friends. If I dare to say I mind, Xiaobai may immediately dump me.”
“Haha, how can it be? You’re my honey.” Ling Baifei laughed happily.
Seeing them playing lovey-dovey in front of him, Li Xiaonian couldn’t help but shiver.
Then the three wandered around the slave market together.
On the way, Ling Baifei sent a message to Li Xiaonian privately. “You seem to not be happy to see me with Bingyu. Why?”
Li Xiaonian wanted to deny it, but after thinking about it, he simply replied, “Bingyu is the goddess of all the boys in our school. You stole our goddess. How can I be happy?”
“What? You fell for Bingyu too? Hahaha… that’s great. It shows that I’m more attractive than you. You’d better just give up. Bingyu is mine now. You can’t take her away from me.”
Looking at Ling Baifei’s triumphant expression, Li Xiaonian didn’t know what to say. He really wanted to tell him the truth. Cheng Bingyu was a nice girl, but she was a fair-weather girlfriend.
In his previous life, Ling Baifei and Cheng Bingyu had been dating for two years. However, after Ling Baifei’s family went bankrupt after being implicated by him, their relationship came to an end.
Afterwards, he helped Ling Baifei’s family to regain wealth and become even richer, but Ling Baifei could no longer accept Cheng Bingyu.
Suddenly, there was a sensation in the whole street.
The crowd looked in unison at the stage in the middle of the street
Ling Baifei quickly explained to Li Xiaonian, “Only rare special slaves will be put on the stage for auction, and their price is ridiculously expensive each time.”
“OK.” Li Xiaonian simply responded, craning his neck to watch.
Two NPCs appeared with a Long-eared Tribe slave who was tied up.
The Long-eared Tribe slave was very tall and looked at least 6.6 feet tall. He was so skinny as if he could be blown away by a gust of wind. His skin was dark, and he was dirty all over.
Seeing this slave, the surrounding players whispered.
“Oh, this slave looks so weak. Why is he put on this stage for auction?”
“I don’t know. I don’t like him anyway. He’s too ugly.”
“Since he can be auctioned on the stage, there must be something special about him. I wonder who will purchase him this time.”
The auctioneer was a professional player. He looked around at the audience and said, “Today we’re lucky enough to witness this auction that may be recorded in history. I think everyone knows the rules, so I won’t introduce them anymore. Now that all the major powers are here, let’s start today’s auction.”
“The lot today is a Long-eared Tribe slave. When you see him at the first glance, you may not be interested. But what if I say he is an intermediate Machinery Master?”
As soon as the auctioneer said this, the crowd was in an uproar.
“Wow, he turns out to be a Machinery Master, and an intermediate one. Oh my god, how much will it cost to buy him?”
“Humph, what are you so excited about? Such a precious slave is bound to be taken by the four major guilds. It happens every time. I’m used to it.”
“I remember that half a year ago, there was a slave who was a junior Machinery Master, and his price seemed to be several million yuan.”
Seeing the crowd in an uproar, the auctioneer shouted with excitement, “Yes, you heard it right. This Long-eared Tribe slave is an intermediate Machinery Master! As we all know, “Star Wind” is a high-tech world. If you own an intermediate Machinery Master, it’s equivalent to owning endless wealth. This deal is a safe bet”
“OK, I believe you can’t wait now. The auction officially begins.”
“Long-eared Tribe slave, Luomosi, the upset price is 10,000 gold coins, and each bid shall be no less than 200 gold coins. Everyone, let’s get started!”Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
Li Xiaonian, who didn’t pay much attention at first, gave a violent shudder when he heard the name “Luomosi”.
This slave was the prince of the Long-eared Tribe! He must get this guy!
Li Xiaonian clenched his fists with slight excitement.
Luomosi was an intermediate Machinery Master, but that was not important. The important thing was that he was the future king of the Long-eared Tribe. If he saved him, he could gain the Long-eared Tribe’s friendship, and the return he would get would be beyond measure with money.
And he could even take this chance to ask the Long-eared Tribe to help solve the Lord of Hell in Skyfire, Wufeng.
