Book II – Bandit, Chapter 32 – The Purple-Sky Secret Fair

— Pangaea’s South Ward, Winter Winds City

In an area close to the border of Pangaea and Rodinia there was a relatively huge city that was twice the size of Black Heart City and was surrounded by a tranquil and serene atmosphere. The chill in the air was not stifling at all, but instead had a soothing and calming feel to it.

The name of this enormous city was Winter Winds City.

Winter Winds City was bustling with activity and flooded with dao cultivators. However, unlike most of the South Ward, the streets of this city were rather festive, and there were no signs of conflict or combat. This was honestly very different from most of the towns this far south. Fighting in this city had significant consequences, so no one dared to make trouble lightly.

As soon as a fight broke out, a guard team would tear through the crowd and immediately arrest the culprits! In light situations, the trouble-makers could be seen on the streets again after a few days. However, the culprits of the more severe conflicts had almost all disappeared, and the ones who had returned did so with their cultivation’s crippled.

This city guard team of brutal enforcers called themselves the ‘police force,’ and they were all from the Purple-Sky Clan in Winter Winds City.

The Purple-Sky clan was one of the two most powerful families in Winter Winds city, and they were the most wealthy clan by far. Their wealth quickly elevated them to the status of the number one white-bronze rank power in the city. By the upper realms’ standards, this meant that they had an expert class warrior! That was probably the equivalent to a Sage path cultivator of the early Silver Mage rank. As far as Jodye knew, this should be similar to Sigma Octanis’ level of power!

With so much power and wealth, it came as no surprise that more than a third of the property in the city belonged to the Purple-Sky clan. Another third was own by the city’s number 2 power the Winter Sky Sect. However, the Vice-Sect leader of this sect and many of its disciple40discipleone who accepts the knowledge of and assists in spreading the doctrines of another, taking them as a master.s were in fact from the Purple-Sky clan! Their influence within Winter Sky City could thus be imagined.

“Did you hear? The city’s next Purple-Sky Secret Fair has been announced, and it’s starting in two days!”

“How could I not hear? It’s only the whole town that’s been buzzing about it. The Purple-Sky Clans influence seems to be expanding again.”

“You better believe it! Rumor has it that they’re close to becoming a silver rank force! Once that happens our Winter Winds City will enter a new tax bracket though.”

“The price of living is bound to go up once more…”

“They say that this year’s secret auction fair will feature an ancient spell! If I were able to get my hands on such a treasure, then everything would change!”

“Dream on! How could there be so much luck in the world? That ancient spell will end up in the hands of some super power’s prodigy child.”

“Why must the heavens show such favoritism!”

“Hm? My, what a handsome man.”

“Yes, but doesn’t he have three kids? That’s too much.”

“You idiot, those are probably his fellow disciples! This is clearly a group of warriors. Look, one’s even a negus! That old man in the front must be their master.”

“Ah! You’re right. What a sturdy looking young man.”

“That handsome man in the middle looks a bit… familiar, right?”

Many people on the street had their own conversations, private or otherwise. The five people in question who just arrived at Winter Winds City were Jodye Trill, Aiken Moon, Dessa Chimes, Sigma Octanis, and the old man Cassan. The group left Black Heart City this morning to travel to the secret auction. The Heavenly Star Commander, Sigma Octanis, was relatively famous all throughout the South Ward, in many different regions of Pangaea, and even certain areas of Rodinia according to Sigma himself. However, not many people actually knew what Sigma looked like. After their arrival, the group of five weren’t recognized or paid much attention too at all.

When Cassan heard the people whispering in the surroundings, assuming he was the leader, felt insecure and bashful. He worriedly cast a glance at Sigma, only to find him smiling warmly back. Cassan sighed in relief and withdrew a serene sound stone from his sleeve before sending someone a message.

Both Cassan and Sigma seemed to have sleeves on their robes that served as a spatial artifact. Jodye Trill had asked Sigma for his own set over dozens of times by now, but Sigma would return the request with an offer for discipleship. This had made Jodye’s face ugly various times, how annoying!

“I’ve contacted my buddy. With his help, we should be able to get a fair deal on some items,” Cassan had arranged for his buddy that owed him a favor to sponsor them for the auction. In his mind, that was the only way that they could swagger efficiently and afford whatever they wanted at this auction. As the asset manager of the Shooting Star Heavenly House, even though they were rich, Cassan naturally wouldn’t let them lose too much capital here.

“Hey old man, where in this auction square can we put things up for auction?” asked Jodye Trill. This was one of his main objectives.

“We would have to locate a secret auctioneer. At the Purple-Sky Secret Fair, only exclusive items are sold at the nightly grand auctions. As for everything else, it is available in the auction square during the day,” said Cassan matter-of-factly. He had already grown accustomed to the crude and inquisitive nature of this brat, he couldn’t be bothered to get angry ay Jodye’s words.

The group walked down around Winter Winds City leisurely while stopping into the various shops, while they waiting for Cassan to hear from whomever he had contacted before. Along the way Jodye stopped and spoke with many people at many different stalls to fish for information. After a while, he suggested they split up and find a secret auctioneer. Sigma Octanis would obviously agree to help him with this, in spite of thinking it was totally unnecessary.

“Master, is there something at the secret auction which you need?” After the party split, Aiken Moon was walking around a market place behind Sigma.

Dear Readers. Scrapers have recently been devasting our views. At this rate, the site (creativenovels .com) might...let's just hope it doesn't come to that. If you are reading on a scraper site. Please don't.

“Not exactly, my boy,” Sigma Octanis was shopping for a few alchemy ingredients as he answered Aiken’s inquiry absentmindedly. He wasn’t planning on telling this disciple of his that the true reason he even discovered news of this secret auction was that he was trying to curry favor with his apprentice26apprenticeAn apprentice or student is someone who is learning something from a teacher. While the relation is sacred, and there are mutual obligations between the apprentice and the teacher, there is no commitment between them. A disciple, on the other hand, has committed himself to the master, and the art of his master. The disciple has committed to entering and mastering a secret branch of knowledge and has requested the master to accept him into the arcane path. The relationship is very sacred and the obligations are binding.. After all, technically Aiken’s status superseded the Jodye as mentioned earlier. Merely, was this even truly the case? As Aiken’s benefactor, Jodye was destined to never be lower than him in status. “However, they should be selling something that could help you integrate with the Everfrost Sky Flame.”

Sky Flame!

A Sky Flame was a flame given birth by the astral earth and heaven forces. Sky flames are incredibly powerful and utterly incomparable to flames formed by origin energy, or even pure fire. Sky flames are incredibly wild and explosive, not to mention extremely rare. Even if one encounters a Sky Flame, it is still challenging to absorb and control it.

Sky Fire reigns supreme over all mortal flames! Even other mystic fires or fire spirit elementals would fear and follow the sky flame because they are the kings of fire and all weaker fire laws naturally serve sky flames. Sky Flames are formed through the slow accumulation of the world’s pure essence as well as different earthen or heavenly energies. As a result, they all have their own unique shapes and functionality. Flames made from astral essence are nearly as dangerous as star fire. In fact, there’s very little that separate the two.

Controlling a high ranking Sky Flame was every Master’s dream! Especially Alchemists and Weapon Refiners. Aiken found it hard to believe they were offering him something so precious, even though both Sigma and Cassan were masters.

“Wait.” Aiken Moon seemed to realize something when he thought up to here. “Could that mean?”

“Master, do you possess your own Sky Flame?” Aiken Moon asked the first question that appeared in his mind. He had learned to do this from Mr. Jupiter. As smart as Mr. Jupiter was, Aiken would always take note of how he spammed anyone with questions if he was presented with new information. Such charismatic passion for knowledge was inspiring. This was the way of the sage!

“Indeed, I do. It took a lot of effort to locate a Sky Flame that was similar to my own so that I could give it to my legacy inheritor. I decided I would leave my legacy on the planet of the world where I found the flame.” Sigma turned and gazed deeply at Aiken, “However, until you youngsters arrived we had yet to discover anyone worthwhile. To be honest, if your boss wasn’t such a freak than you would be the most suitable candidate on this star by far. You should not compare yourself to him. His background isn’t something you can imagine. Focus on integrating with the Everfrost Sky Flame.”

Aiken Moon’s eyes grew bright as saucers once he heard that. The Everfrost Sky Flame! This was a sky fire that was discovered by Cassan in a wilderness of the North Ward. Integrating with such a powerful existence was incomparably dangerous, but there was much more benefit if one was able to incorporate it at a young age. Sky Flames would grow with their receptors! However, the difficulty level of this was excessive!

Dying was the most common occurrence.

Becoming a cripple was merely uncommon.

Light injuries were rare.

Success was unique!

It would take an extensive amount of preparation and time, but Aiken was more than willing to push himself to the limit. Once he possessed a sky flame, his overall talent and being would transform! It was like a type of rebirth.

“Yes, Master!” Aiken Moon bowed deeply. He was completely gratified. It seemed as if destiny had finally smiled upon him. At this moment his eyes actually blanked out. A strange and mysterious ancient melody begin to echo in the void.

“Did that boy just awaken?”

Only allowed on Creativenovels.com

“Is it a new young sage?”

“He’s rather old, but an awakening is awakening after all. He should be a decent Scholar in the future.”

Several people in the market noticed Aiken’s strange condition and started to comment among each other. Some only spoke in passing. Others’ eyes flashed with devious thoughts.

“Oh boy,” Sigma felt a headache coming on. He released a bit of his silver mage rank origin strength and many warriors in the crowd took a step back. Sigma sighed heavily while looking at his new disciple, “What bad time to enter enlightenment. Lucky though, it usually takes decades to reach the destiny platform a second time. Perhaps this is destiny indeed…”

Meanwhile, Cassan was still following quietly behind Jodye Trill and Dessa Chimes in an artifact store. Jodye was in the middle of haggling with the shopkeeper. This shopkeeper happened to be a secret auctioneer. Secret auctioneers were the ones who could put your items up for auction. You only had to convince them of the value of your treasures. What astonished Cassan was that there were only twelve secret auctioneers in the entire city yet they found one so quickly. They had split into two parties to locate a secret auctioneer, and Jodye had seen one in the first shop they entered! After he identified her with the secret salute one of the people outside taught him, she immediately revealed her status.

Cassan was speechless.

“You kidding me? These Phantom Sabers are combat gear of the D-grade, not only that but they give a 20% boost in power! Where would you find D-grade combat gear like this in the south?” Jodye Trill grinned with his bright smile. The shopkeeper was a middle-aged woman with attractive features and a beautiful figure. She was slightly dazzled by this youngster’s charming smile, but luckily he was far too young for her to take seriously. The effect wore off instantly. Still, she returned his smile and treat him more earnestly. After all, 20% of origin boosting was no joke!

Jodye was wearing blue brocade raiment and had his source artifact [Pharaoh’s Law4Lawthe rules and principles that create, govern, and maintain the energies of the universe. When laws come into harmony they form different systems naturally, with as many functions as the laws in harmony. For laws to enter a state of harmony, they must be compatible and have a proper conduit such as a star, or anything with its own unique Origin source law. With a good enough conduit it is possible to make incompatible laws reach a state of harmony, but in such a scenario there is a high chance of the force turning cancerous. The condensation of law energy produces what is known as Force or Qi..] active. The two combat gear sabers floated between himself and the shopkeeper. The shopkeeper secretly marveled at this as she scrutinized them heavily. Who the heck was this child? Or could it be a trick of the old man behind him? After a moment of hesitation, she took one of the sabers, handing it to one of the two experts at her side. The expert injected his origin energy into the saber and the origin qi phenomenon formed above him in the form of 1,500 marble sized light spheres, and then 300 more spheres seemed to be born from within them. The event then dissipated before the image could finish forming.

“It is indeed a 20% origin boost!” said the expert in approval. Jodye was shocked that a casual expert was as powerful as Uncle Sigma. Of course, he also knew that Uncle Sigma’s strength was actually far more than just this.

The shopkeeper nodded her head then spoke to Jodye, “Okay, we can auction these Phantom Sabers for you. The service fee is 10 gold crystal notes. We’ll only take 15% of the earnings, and you can have your own V.I.P. booth.”

Jodye Trill was inwardly disappointed, but he knew their attitudes would soon change. Jodye’s face was the epitome of stoicism. The Phantom Saber in the expert’s hand suddenly slipped away before floating next to Jodye once more. Jodye only crossed his arms and spoke imperiously, “Well, these are only a small taste. We can discuss the big business in private.”

“Big business?” giggled the other expert next to the shopkeeper. Just who did this brat think he was? However, a shiver suddenly ran down that expert’s back, forcing him to look into the menacingly cold eyes of the elder behind the two youths.

“Indeed,” responded Cassan and Jodye in unison, their indifference fused into one. Jodye continued to say, “I have some items that would only leave us both rich.”

The shopkeeper and her two followers wore astounded expressions as the last words came out of this boy’s mouth. They all exchanged a glance, and then the shopkeeper spoke into a serenity crystal on her hip. Two minutes later she turned back to Jodye and company, “This way please, young master Jupiter.”

Jodye and company followed the shopkeeper and her two followers out of the back of the store and into the auction square. There were many curious gazes from members of the Purple-Sky clan who saw their group and direction.

“Hm? New guests? They look unfamiliar.”

“One of them is a Negus child. Could he be of royal blood?”

“They look so weak, yeah? How could Vanessa bring them here early, what is she thinking?”

The shopkeeper Vanessa led the group of five down a path that seemed to be paved from onyx. This onyx path was so spotless and shiny that it felt like Jodye was walking on top of a black mirror. The group proceeded through various streets and into a large governmental looking building.

“Halt!”

An imposing voice rang out from behind the group, who all turned around a little stunned. Swiftly approaching them was a young man in purple brocade raiment designed with five purple clouds, followed by several guards wearing the armor of the same design. Jodye Trill immediately reasoned that this youth should be a young genius of the Purple-Sky clan, and one with considerable status at that. Otherwise, why would they afford him such an entourage? Sigma had taught him earlier that the more purple clouds on the robes of a clan member in the Purple-Sky clan, then the higher their rank.

“Who gave you permission to let this filth in, Vanessa? Scram out of here before you upset this young master.” said the youth arrogantly.

“Filth?” Both Jodye and Cassan’s curious countenances immediately plummeted dozens of degrees. Jodye Trill was about to speak when Cassan placed a hand on his shoulder and beat him to the punch, “Lad, you’d best watch your manner of speaking. This old servant is not above disciplining the young.”

“Should my young master somehow fear your mere Silver Mage rank strength, old man?” said the lead guard to Cassan. He was sneering menacingly as if he was already torturing them in his head. “All of you, on your knees now!”

As the guard shouted a wave of pressure swept out the knocked many pots and displays over, however Jodye Trill and Dessa Chimes didn’t even feel so much as a breeze. Cassan had completely nullified that spiritual pressure.

“Is this all your capable of?” Once Cassan spoke his milky white origin energy swept out of his body transforming into a tide of violent violet atmosphere, force momentum rising off of his body.

Sensing the intense energy fluctuations, the lead guard’s face grew solemn, and he moved his young master behind his back to shield him from the dangerous old man’s outburst of strength and force. Indeed, he underestimated this old man. The old man was no certainly ordinary mage. This man was definitely a true expert warrior!

“Be prepared to retreat, young master, you seem to have kicked a metal pot this time,” said one of the guards noticing the shift in force momentum. Real experts could gauge the strength of an opponent without waiting to see their battle power phenomenon.

However, right at this moment the pretty shopkeeper Vanessa forced her way past the two youths and in front of Cassan with her hands outstretched, “Enough of this! Do I need your permission to do my job? These people are our patrons and customers, and they are here to auction their treasures! You foolish numbskulls, will the House Lord let you off for acting this way?.”

“Cus… to… mer,” Upon hearing Vanessa’s words the youth behind his guards was caught off guard, “Ah! Dear me!”

“Dearest customers, allow this humble one to offer his most sincere apology,” the previously arrogant and unreasonable youth was suddenly amiable and pleasant as if he had no idea that he had been treating them as enemies before. Jodye felt his stomach turn upon witnessing this play. What the hell was wrong with this kid?

“Cassan.” Jodye Trill spoke imperiously. Cassan was shocked, but he quickly smirked and nodded. He wasn’t technically obligated to take orders from an apprentice of his master, only a legacy disciple would have such treatment. However, was Jupiter’s position in his master’s heart not already more than his current legacy disciple’s? It was no problem taking command from such a Young Scholar. Cassan stepped out with his force momentum blaring, and Vanessa panicked.

“Mr. Jupiter, please have mercy!”

“Fine.” Jodye Trill shrugged and turned back towards the building. Cassan withdrew his energy and followed behind him with Dessa. Jodye Trill didn’t even glance back as he spoke, “I would like to conclude my business here if it’s fine with you.”

The shopkeeper Vanessa sighed in relief, before turning to rebuke the young noble once more, “Are you daft? Do you want to ruin me? What the hell is your problem?”

“I thought… I thought that perhaps you were being wooed by this strapping young negus boy. They are famed for their womanizing, Vanessa, you must be wary! I was only looking out for your best interests.” said the Purple-Sky clan youth defensively. “Such a weak character is unworthy of being my brother’s rival.”

“Your brother does not own me, Hakeem, nor do you!” Vanessa’s pink face was glowing like a tomato, she was clearly angry. “If I wanted to be wooed by him, or anyone else, it’s no business of Omari, and certainly no business of you!”

Watching the angry Vanessa Tosh walk off to catch up with her charges, Hakeem Purple-Sky was left to glower in shame and disappointment. He had intended to cause a memorable scene that added dramatically onto the prestige of himself and his brother. However, Hakeem had failed to anticipate such a reliable expert would be by his target’s side. However, in reality, he had just lucked out. Had he really slaughtered a distinguished guest customer, and their background was significant, Hakeem’s good days would be over.

“He can woo you if you want, you say? Hmph. If I can’t have you only my older brother could possibly be worthy. Let’s see just what sort of b******* treasure this punk brings out,” Hakeem was pulling out a serenity crystal as he finished speaking. Vanessa’s parting words made him believe that he was at least partially correct. The negus brat was trying to capture Vanessa’s maiden heart, and apparently, his progress wasn’t inadequate.

Meanwhile, Jodye and company strolled into the building and were greeted with two pretty ladies behind the desk at the entrance. The one on the right was currently talking into a serenity crystal with a fascinating look on her face. She almost didn’t even notice someone had walked in.

“Hello guest, how may I assist you?” said the girl on the left in a soft and melodious voice.

“They’re with me, Monica,” from behind Jodye and company, Vanessa Veto had finally caught up. “Please inform Elder Jackel, I need his assistance in appraising some items.”

“Certainly,” the other girl had an even prettier voice, “What is it that guest would like to auction?”

“In addition to the items I’ve already exchanged with Miss Vanessa, I would like to auction five more items,” responded Jodye Trill. He had noticed that this girl avoided looking at him when he first arrived, but after finishing her private conversation, she was suddenly so friendly.

Was this how you fool a spy?

Of course not. This woman was obviously up to no good.

“May I know which items guest had in mind?” asked the girl.

Before Jodye could answer, however, Vanessa frowned and interjected, “Excuse me Tina, but since when is it your turn to handle the matters I’ve already surrendered to a clan elder?”

Tina grew much more annoyed that this wretched Vanessa decided to play goody-goody today. Who was this handsome brat anyway? Tina winked at Jodye flirtatiously before sticking her tongue out at Vanessa, “I was only curious, there is no need to be so hostile. I thought that maybe guest would like a more…full packaged level of service.”

This girl was, in fact, rather gorgeous. Merely how old was the current Joseph Goldwolf? He was totally unaffected by her charms. He smiled brilliantly, and the ladies in the room felt momentarily blind.
“Big sister Tina sure is pretty. You can service me next time for sure.”

Vanessa looked smug like she had won a battle, while Tina was no virgin woman and she caught Jodye’ ambiguous meaning. She blushed and looked away. Tina expected Jodye to act bashful and flustered, but this little brat had dared to profane her! Even stranger was that she found him not at all disgusting, but rather slightly charming. This was something Tina completely couldn’t understand. She decided to stay far away from this dangerous child.

Lucky for her, Jodye was still too young to even notice this effect.

The side doors of this entrance chamber swung open, and two elders wearing purple-sky robes glided into the room, landing in front of Jodye and company. The foremost elder had a burgundy beard and canine-like features. He was tall and still a little handsome, in spite of being ravaged by the war against time.

This man was none other than Elder Jackel, and next to him was Jackel’s Senior-disciple brother Elder Wuhen. As he was arriving before Jodye, Elder Wuhen was muttering an incantation that sealed the area, and Jodye could no longer see the other two women and his two companions. There was only Elder Jackel and Elder Wuhen. This spell was very similar to the innate ability of the Si clan warriors! Only, it clearly took far longer to set up this spell then it took for the Si Clan’s ability to activate.

Perhaps this was the convenience of a powerful bloodline? Jodye would keep it in mind.

To the two elder’s shock, Cassan phased into their barrier seconds later. Jodye was surprised but less so. He expected Cassan wouldn’t allow them to be isolated from each other. This action also served as a warning to the two Purple-Sky elders, don’t try anything funny.

“Youngster Jupiter, was it? Quickly show this old man what it is you need to auction,” said Elder Jackel impatiently.

Jodye Trill wasn’t bothered by this man’s tone nor did he hesitate, since he knew they could no longer be spied on by any random passerby. After all, a big sale at an auction required absolute secrecy. The longer people know about a unique treasure, the less reckless they’ll be when it comes time to purchase it.

“First and foremost, allow me to show you this,” Jodye Trill withdrew the Black Heart Bow and Arrow set from his space ring, and the items hovered in front of Elder Jackel. Elder Jackel marveled over this as he realized this brat was definitely not simple. The elder realized that his plans to assist the young master Hakeem would have to be reserved for another time. He felt some kind of subconscious threat from this young in front of him!

“Oh?” While Elder Jackel was lost in thought, Elder Wuhen instantly recognized this bow and arrow set. “Blackheart Bow, Blackheart Arrows! Every martial warrior in Black Heart city would go crazy over these! These were refined by the Black Heart ancestor, the last Great Pharaoh of the Southern Flame from ancient times! How on earth could you possibly have this? Are you truly willing to auction these items? Why not sell them to me outright.”

“This…” Jodye Trill was momentarily stunned. Who knew that this bow and arrow set had such a background? It was merely a C-grade combat gear, sooner or later Jodye could create dozens of these. The arrowheads, on the other hand, were truly impressive. They were a true treasure for a low-level martial artist, but Jodye still didn’t think it was worthy of such hype. Of course, if it were truly so rare, he would much rather auction it. “If your price can move my heart, I will consider it.”

“Wuhen, what on earth are you doing?! Have you lost it?!” Elder Jackel raged. How dare this senior-disciple brother of his try and steal a good sale from right under his nose?

Elder Wuhen rubbed his nose in embarrassment and gave Elder Jackel face by taking a step back. However, a dark light flashed in the depths of his eyes. No one on the scene seemed to notice, but Jodye was cognizant of it. Merely, Elder Wuhen had already started to backtrack, “My apologies, brother Jackel. The allure was simply… too great. Please proceed.”

“Sir, such a fine item is definitely sure to sell astronomically. Allow us at the Purple-Sky clan to handle this item for you. Since you also delivered us the twin set of combat Sabers at a 15% commission, we’ll knock the commission down to 8% for this item and 0% for any others.” One had to admit this Elder Jackel was quite shrewd. Instead of acknowledging that the previous commission was unfair, he merely discounted it entirely so that he could maintain a fair commission on this big seller.

 Of course, how could he imagine that Jodye had even rarer items? More than a year ago Jodye had requisitioned the A-Grade Combat Gear, the Baleful Glaive. Just this weapon alone was enough to get him murdered and robbed three times over. Back at the Dark Cave Jodye Trill had obtained sixteen Dark Jumble Fruits. After that, he even gathered some treasures from the spatial belt of Oulan Mercy. Jodye had to sacrifice two of the Dark Jumble Fruit to escape from the Crimson Riders brigand, but he still had fourteen left! Jodye planned on selling two of these Dark Jumble Fruits and then keeping the remaining twelve for Dessa, Aiken, and himself once they reached the Earth Science realm. Only then could such a potent origin fruit be consumed. The energies inside would be enough to carry them at least halfway through the realm!

This was the reason why Origin Fruits at any level were heavily sought after items.

“Deal!” Jodye Trill’s total lack of negotiation gave Elder Jackel a bad premonition, but he swiftly dismissed it. At the end of the day, this brat was only 13 at the most, and the elder behind him was clearly just a protector. How many top-selling treasures could a brat really have? Unfortunately, his thoughts were destined to be turned upside down. “Next, I would like to sell this.”

Jodye Trill pulled out the spatial belt he had stolen from Oulan Mercy. He was initially going to gift this to Aiken Moon once the boy surrendered to his legion, but Autumn Saver recognized this belt when he withdrew it during their journey. The treasure sword’s soul reminded him that such an eye-catching spatial device would certainly attract trouble if anyone from Oulan Mercy’s sect caught sight of it.

Thus, Jodye thought to auction it off privately. This would definitely be the best solution.

“Ah, what a unique spatial artifact?” Elder Jackel observed the ownerless and groovy designed spatial belt and was secretly impressed. It was a waste that he had already given up commission on this item, but he was certain the C-Grade combat gear refined by an ancient Pharaoh King would definitely do immense numbers. He would be greatly rewarded as a result. “Incredible, young noble. This will also be a fine sale item. I wonder what your final items will be?”

“Before we discuss that, is your previous statement truly in effect?” asked Jodye Trill with a mischievous smile on his face. When the two elders witnessed this smile, they both had a foreboding feeling.

What was this last item exactly?

“Young noble, you jest. Of course, if I have said it, I will live true to it.”

“Very well, this is my item,” a light flashed, and medicinal fragrance filled the air, as all the light was pulled into the crystal-like fruit in Jodye’s hand. All three elders wore shocked countenances. This was?

Wasn’t this?

“Dark…”

“Jumble…”

“Fruit…”

The three old men Jackel, Wuhen, and Cassan, spoke one after the other, and they were each dumbstruck. How many treasures does this kid possess exactly?



*Author’s Note:*

There were originally 16 Dark Jumble Fruit. Sorry for the confusion.
