Chapter 249: Mysterious Little Gold Mouse
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
Needless to say, the actions of the two little pythons startled Duan Ling Tian as well.
"Could it be that Little Black and Little White noticed something that can be eaten?" Li Fei's voice abruptly sounded and was filled with surprise.
"Probably." Duan Ling Tian approved of what Li Fei said, as these two little pythons were basically gluttons.
However, he was slightly curious about what exactly would cause these two little fellows to be so excited.
"Hiss hiss~" The two little pythons seemed to be able to understand Duan Ling Tian and Li Fei's conversation, and they turned their heads and fiercely flicked their tongues as if they were announcing their dissatisfaction....
"Young Master, Big Sister Fei, don't talk about Little Black and Little White anymore. Look, they're both angry." Ke Er lightly stroked the small heads of the two little pythons, and the two little fellows meekly rubbed Ke Er, then they turned their heads to continue staring fixedly at the tray that was covered in red cloth.
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled, his gaze then returned to the auction platform.
And right at this moment, the old man on the auction platform lifted off the red cloth....
It could be vaguely seen that within a special little cage was a fierce beast with a dejected aura.
This fierce beast was only a little mouse, and unlike an ordinary mouse that would cause one to feel disgust, this mouse had an entire body of golden fur that was extremely fluffy, extremely similar to a plush toy from Duan Ling Tian's previous life on Earth.
Presently, this little mouse lay there in a drowsy state.
"Drugged?" Duan Ling Tian frowned. He was able to discern with a glance that this gold little mouse had been given medicine similar to the Origin Sealing Parasite.
The Origin Sealing Parasite, the poison that Xiong Quan was infected with before, which was able to suppress Origin Energy.
"So cute!" Li Fei and Ke Er's beautiful eyes lit up when they saw this gold little mouse, and traces of a maternal lustre appeared within their eyes.
"Hiss hiss~" After the two little pythons saw the little gold mouse, they were extremely agitated, and if it wasn't for Duan Ling Tian being there watching them, it was very likely that they'd already directly shattered the window and rushed down.
"Little Black, Little White....You two wouldn't be thinking of eating it, right?" Duan Ling Tian looked at the two little fellows with a strange gaze.
"Little Black, Little White, you two must be obedient, you can't eat it!" Li Fei and Ke Er hurriedly looked at the two little fellows and spoke at almost the exact same time.
Instantly, the two little fellows drooped their heads, and flowing lights revolved within their eyes. Obviously, they were slightly unhappy.
"You two really intended to eat it?" Duan Ling Tian was slightly speechless.
"However, if the poison in its body is removed, I'm afraid it will be impossible you two little fellows to eat it." Duan Ling Tian's gaze once again descended onto the little gold mouse, he was able to discern that at its prime, this little gold mouse would probably be not one bit inferior to the two little pythons....
Even to the extent that it was even stronger!
"Young Master, you're saying that that little gold mouse is even stronger than Little Black and Little White?" Ke Er couldn't help but exclaim in a low voice, as she knew the strength of the two little pythons....
That cute little gold mouse that looked harmless was stronger than them?
Li Fei was stupefied and had a face full of disbelief. "Scoundrel, did you make a mistake?"
"Hiss hiss~" The two little pythons seemed to understand what Duan Ling Tian said, and they once again glared at Duan Ling Tian. When they saw Duan Ling Tian return a glare at them, they instantly waned and drooped their heads in dejection.
"You two little fellows don't be unconvinced." Duan Ling Tian smiled.
"Young Master, can you buy it?" Ke Er looked at the little gold mouse, and her pair of beautiful eyes flickered with a maternal lustre.
"Yeah, Scoundrel, this little gold mouse is too cute," Li Fei said as well.
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled. "Since you both like it, then I'll buy it....If I'm not wrong, this little gold mouse is very likely a Goldfur Mouse.
"Goldfur Mouse?" Ke Er didn't have a big reaction; however, Li Fei was slightly moved. "Goldfur Mouse? The mouse that's known as the strongest king of fierce beasts below a demon beasts? The strongest mouse-type fierce beast?"
"Yes." Duan Ling Tian nodded. "According to its characteristics, there's a 90% and above chance it's a Goldfur Mouse....As for if it actually is one, it would have to wait until I buy it and examine it closely."
The old man on the auction platform had now already started introducing the little gold mouse. "Everyone, this auction item now is one of the last three auction items of our auction today....I presume some guests have already discerned it, you're right, this is a Goldfur Mouse; moreover, it's an infant mouse!
"Normally speaking, a Goldfur Mouse infant would at most have a strength at the Nascent Soul Stage....But this infant mouse has a strength at the seventh level of the Nascent Soul Stage!"
The hall went into a complete uproar as soon as the old man finished speaking.
"Infant Goldfur Mouse, seventh level of the Nascent Soul Stage?"
"In this way, when this infant mouse matures, it will be very likely to transform into an existence at the Half-step Void Stage?"
"Not only the Half-step Void Stage....A Goldfur Mouse that has a strength at the seventh level of the Nascent Soul Stage during infancy can be considered to be special amongst Goldfur Mouses, and its natural talent would be outstanding! Even to the extent it might possibly transform into a demon beast."
"Demon beast? That's an existence at the Void Stage and above!"
Everyone was excited.
Buying this infant Goldfur Mouse was comparable to buying an existence that had the potential to transform into a demon beast.
A demon beast was comparable to a Void Stage powerhouse!
"Humph! Don't get happy too early, the Goldfur Mouse is famous for being fierce. Do all of you think you're able to control it?" Right at this moment, a voice of ridicule sounded out from the corner of the hall.
Instantly, the clamor in the hall quieted down.
Yeah, a king of fierce beasts like the Goldfur Mouse wouldn't willingly become a human's vassal.
If you don't have formidable strength, then don't hope to control the Goldfur Mouse.
"Everyone, this Goldfur Mouse has been drugged with the Origin Sealing Liquid, so only the strength at the ninth level of the Body Tempering Stage remains....Once it's bought by a guest, our Ma Clan Auction House will send it out with the antidote," the old man said slowly.
"Young Master, what's the Origin Sealing Liquid?" In the room, Ke Er had a face full of curiosity as she asked Duan Ling Tian.
"Origin Sealing Liquid is a type of toxic poison that suppresses the Origin Energy; however, it can only suppress the Origin Energy of fierce beasts and martial artists below the Void Prying Stage," Duan Ling Tian explained. The Origin Sealing Liquid could be considered the lower version of the Origin Sealing Parasite.
And it was far less domineering that the Origin Sealing Parasite!
If it was the Origin Sealing Parasite, so long as it wasn't an existence at the Void Initiation Stage or above, they would practically all be infected.
Just like Xiong Quan, at that time he was precisely infected with the poison of the Origin Sealing Parasite.
Ke Er came to a sudden understanding when she heard what Duan Ling Tian said.
"I really never would have imagined that this infant Goldfur Mouse was stronger that Little Black and Little White...." Li Fei said in surprise. What she said also caused the two little pythons to become restless, and their two little eyes were filled with refusal to accept it.
"You two little fellows are still unwilling to accept it?" Duan Ling Tian extended his hand and flicked the small heads of the two little pythons, then his gaze once again descended onto the infant Goldfur Mouse, and he frowned. "Logically speaking, before an infant Goldfur Mouse matures, it would at most be at the ninth level of the Origin Core Stage....Looks like this little gold mouse isn't so simple."
Earlier, Duan Ling Tian didn't notice that this little gold mouse was an infant mouse.
When he heard the old man's words, he came to a sudden understanding and realized the mysteriousness of this little gold mouse and that it wasn't simple.
Meanwhile, the bidding for the infant Goldfur Mouse had started....
"1 million gold!" A sonorous voice sounded out from a room on the second floor, directly suppressing all the voices of bids from before.
Instantly, the hall was deathly silent.
1 million gold was equivalent to 100 million silver!
Practically no one within the hall was able to produce so much money.
"Room number 7 again!" Duan Ling Tian was slightly surprised. He had used two million silver to suppress the bid of 1,700,000 silver from room number 7 to obtain the Silver Fire Grass earlier.
"1,500,000 gold!" A voice sounded from another room.
The corners of Duan Ling Tian's mouth twitched. These people were really wealthy....
Eventually, after room number 7 bid three million gold, the bidding of the infant Goldfur Mouse temporarily quieted down.
"Three million gold! That's 300 million silver!"
"Who the heck is in room number 7? So wealthy!"
"Only the Ma Clan Auction House knows the identities of the people within the rooms on the second floor, and when they leave, it's all through special passages."
"Maybe it's someone from Black Wind City's three great clans, or maybe it's someone from those large merchant groups."
The people in the hall were now only considered spectators, and they were shocked by such sky high prices.
Three million gold!
To them, this was a wealth that was difficult for them to obtain.
"The guest in room number 7 has bid three million gold....Are there other guests who want to continue bidding?" On the auction platform, the old man was slightly excited. "Three million gold once....Three million gold twice...."
"3,010,000 gold!" Under Li Fei and Ke Er's gazes of anticipation, Duan Ling Tian bid in an unhurried manner.
Duan Ling Tian's voice sounding out caused the entire hall to go silent.
After a moment, the hall went into an uproar.
"Others all add a few hundreds of thousands a time. Isn't this guest from room number 1 too stingy?"
"Exactly, actually only adding 10,000 gold."
Many people started discussing.
Duan Ling Tian regarded these discussions as beneath his notice when he heard them.
It's easy to talk!
That's gold, not silver.
10,000 gold is equivalent to 1 million silver, and that is equivalent to a Ferghana Horse!
Is this still considered a small amount?
The sonorous voice from room number 7 sounded out once again. "3,500,000 gold!"
The crowd in the hall instantly gasped in admiration. "This is what's called domineering, directly adding 490,000 gold...."
"Exactly, compared to the guest in room number 7, that guest in room number 1 is too stingy."
"I wonder if the guest in room number 1 will continue to bid."
Accompanied by the burst of discussion in the hall, Duan Ling Tian finally opened his mouth lazily. "3,510,000 gold!"
