After Duan Ling Tian once again voiced out his bid.
The hall was deathly silent.
No one would have imagined that not only would the guest in room number 1 follow the bid, the guest had once again added 10,000 gold.
"Hmph!" The sonorous voice once again sounded out from room number 7, and it was mixed within was a sense of fury. "3,800,000 gold!"
"3,810,000 gold." Duan Ling Tian said unhurriedly.
This time, the people in the hall were speechless.
However, room number 7 had gone silent and didn't continue bidding. Obviously, 3,800,000 gold was the price the person in room number 7 had set in his heart.
The old man on the auction platform raised his voice. "The guest in room number 1 has bid 3,810,000 gold. Are there any guests who want to continue bidding? 3,810,000 gold going once.... 3,810,000 gold going twice.... 3,810,000 gold going thrice! Deal!"
"Yeah!" In room number 1, Li Fei and Ke Er had faces full of excitement. Li Fei even bravely came close to Duan Ling Tian and gave Duan Ling Tian a kiss.
Although Duan Ling Tian's face had a smile, he was bleeding in his heart.
The Emperor of the Crimson Sky Kingdom had bestowed 10 million gold to him, and in this short amount of time, he had used up a little less than half of it.
This amount was almost a quarter of all the wealth in his possession.
"Guest!" In next to no time, the attendant's voice sounded.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian saw the Ma Clan Auction House's Manager, Ma Qin, personally sending the antidote and the cage with the little gold mouse to them.
Ma Qin had a complicated gaze. He never would have imagined that this young man had such a large wealth.
That was nearly 4 million gold!
After Ma Qin put down the little gold mouse and the antidote, Duan Ling Tian withdrew 3,810,000 gold from his Spatial Ring and passed it to Ma Qin.
"Thank you, Guest!" Ma Qin deeply glanced at Duan Ling Tian and then turned around and left.
After the room's door was closed, Duan Ling Tian opened the cage and carried the little gold mouse out.
"Squeak, squeak!" The little gold mouse's pair of jade-green eyes flickered with a fierce light. It wanted to explode out and attack Duan Ling Tian.
However, its current strength at the ninth level of the Body Tempering Stage was nothing in Duan Ling Tian's eyes, and Duan Ling Tian easily caught it. He then smiled and said, "Little fellow, be obedient....Otherwise, I'll let them eat you."
Duan Ling Tian put the little gold mouse on the table, then he glanced at the two little pythons.
The two little pythons flashed out and descended beside the little gold mouse. Their eyes stared fixedly at the little gold mouse as if they had encountered a natural enemy, and they ceaselessly flicked their tongues. "Hiss hiss~"
"Squeak squeak~" The little gold mouse wasn't at a disadvantage at all when facing the two little pythons, and it glared with its jade-green eyes to cross eyes with the two little pythons.
"Jade-green eyes...." Duan Ling Tian suddenly realized that this little gold mouse was indeed not a Goldfur Mouse.
The eyes of a Goldfur Mouse were all crimson-red in color, and that was one of the characteristics of a Goldfur Mouse....Through the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, Duan Ling Tian was extremely sure of this.
Maybe even the members of the Ma Clan Auction House had made a mistake.
"Green eyes, gold fur...." Duan Ling Tian searched the memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor, and he entirely sunk into a state of absent-mindedness. After a short moment, he finally noticed that the little gold mouse was exactly the same as a type of mouse that the Rebirth Martial Emperor knew of.
"That type of mouse is a demon beast!
Moreover, it was a formidable demon beast that possessed the blood of a Demon Emperor!
In Cloud Continent, among the ones who stood at the peak, besides the human Martial Emperors, there were also the demon beasts' Demon Emperors....
The strength of a Demon Emperor wasn't inferior to a human Martial Emperor, even to the extent that they were even stronger than humans in some aspects!
"Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse!" Duan Ling Tian finally confirmed it. The little gold mouse before him that seemed to be similar to a Goldfur Mouse was a Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse that had the natural talent to become a Demon Emperor....A demon beast that stood at the peak of Cloud Continent!
Duan Ling Tian extended his hand and grabbed the little gold mouse, then he carefully sized up the halos within its eyes.
In the end, he confirmed it.
It hadn't been five years since this little gold mouse was born, and it was around one year older than Little Black and Little White.
Duan Ling Tian's mood couldn't help but surge.
Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse!
That's an existence of legend.
Even Rebirth Martial Emperor had only heard of the existence of Jade-eyed Heavenly Mice and had never seen one.
So long as the Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse doesn't come to a premature end on the road to maturity, relying on its formidable bloodline, becoming a Demon Emperor was only a matter of time.
Now Duan Ling Tian felt that coming to the Ma Clan Auction House was the right decision....
This trip was worthwhile!
Not only did he bid on and obtain a Silver Fire grass, now he had even obtained a Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse.
"Young Master, don't grab it like that, it's will feel pain." Ke Er heart ached as she seized the little gold mouse from Duan Ling Tian, then she lightly stroked the little gold mouse's fluffy fur and consoled it. "It doesn't hurt....It doesn't hurt...."
Duan Ling Tian noticed that the little gold mouse's pair of green eyes that fiercely glared at him returned to a gaze of warmth when it looked at Ke Er, and it now even rubbed Ke Er's hand extremely meekly.
"So cute." Li Fei extended her hand to stroke the little gold mouse as well, and the little gold mouse closed it eyes with an expression of enjoyment.
"Hiss hiss~" The two little pythons that were nearby had eyes that had a sense of envy when they saw this scene.
"This little gold mouse wouldn't be a male, right?" Duan Ling Tian extended his hand. He was full of curiosity as he flipped over the lower half of the little gold mouse and took a look.
"Squeak squeak~" The little gold mouse cried out and angrily glared at Duan Ling Tian.
"So it's a little female mouse." Duan Ling Tian smiled, then he extended his hand and grabbed the two little pythons. "Little Black, Little White....If you two are obedient in the future, I'll give you two more good food, and your strengths will surpass it sooner or later. At that time, you two can bully it to your heart's content."
"Hiss hiss~" The two little pythons rubbed Duan Ling Tian when they heard what he said. They were slightly excited.
"Scoundrel, you're leading Little Black and Little White astray." Li Fei couldn't stop herself from rolling her eyes at Duan Ling Tian when she saw this scene.
Ke Er looked at the antidote on the table and asked, "Young Master, can I give this antidote directly to Little Gold to eat?"
"Little Gold?" Duan Ling Tian was startled. It had only been a moment, but Ke Er had already given the little gold mouse a name. He nodded. "OK, directly give the antidote to it....However, if you give the antidote to it now, it wouldn't hurt you, right?" As he finished speaking, Duan Ling Tian looked at the little gold mouse with a face full of vigilance.
The little gold mouse was a Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse after all, a king amongst demon beasts. If it were to throw a tantrum, it wouldn't be a joke.
At that time, even with Xiong Quan's strength, he might not be able to rescue them in time.
Ke Er touched the little gold mouse, and her beautiful eyes were like water as she lightly asked, "Don't worry, Young Master, Little Gold won't attack us....Right, Little Gold?"
The little gold mouse nodded its small head like a human when it heard what Ke Er said, and at the same time, it glanced at Duan Ling Tian complacently, causing Duan Ling Tian to be happy.
In next to no time, Ke Er fed the antidote to the little gold mouse.
After consuming the antidote, the dejected aura on the little gold mouse vanished, and replacing it was a vigorous aura; it was as if the mouse was given a stimulant....
"Hiss hiss~" The two little pythons that were held by Duan Ling Tian glared at the little gold mouse, and their pair of gold and silver eyes were filled with vigilance.
"Squeak squeak~" The little gold mouse bared its fangs and brandished its claws at the two little pythons, and a formidable aura arose from its body.
Instantly, in the space above the little gold mouse, 1,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form....
As if it was telling that its small body contained formidable strength.
Duan Ling Tian's face sank when he saw this scene. "Xiong Quan!"
Xiong Quan took a step forward when he heard Duan Ling Tian, and the formidable aura of a Void Prying Stage powerhouse swept out to envelop the little gold mouse and pressed down upon it.
"Squeak squeak~" Instantly, the 1,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes above the little gold mouse vanished and it suddenly waned. It buried its small head in Ke Er's hand, and its body was even shivering.
"Young Master, how could you ask Xiong Quan to scare it?" Ke Er looked at Duan Ling Tian and pouted, then she extended her hand to stroke the little gold mouse's fluffy fur and comforted it. "Little Gold, it's alright now, it's alright now...."
"Exactly, Scoundrel, it's only just a child," Li Fei said as well, then she went to comfort the little gold mouse with Ke Er.
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled bitterly, as he knew that the maternal instinct of the two girls had flowed out again.
However, as far as he was concerned, the deed earlier was a must. He at least needed to let this Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse infant know who the master was and that it mustn't be presumptuous in front of the master.
"Hiss hiss~" The two little pythons both jumped for joy when they saw the little gold mouse being forced to surrender. They coiled around Duan Ling Tian's arm as they danced about, and their small heads ceaselessly rubbed Duan Ling Tian intimately.
"Little Black, Little White....Luckily, I still have you two; otherwise, I would really not have any place in this family." Duan Ling Tian pretended to sigh, then he looked at the two little pythons with an expression that said 'I can only stick together and depend on you two in the future.'
His tone vaguely had a trace of jealousy mixed within.
"Young Master, what're you saying?"
Ke Er and Li Fei rolled their eyes at Duan Ling Tian when they heard what he said, as they never expected Duan Ling Tian to be jealous of the little gold mouse.
The little gold mouse became obedient after being intimidated by Xiong Quan, and even when Duan Ling Tian occasionally extended his finger to knock its small head, it would be forced to keep its anger to itself....
However, towards the two girls, the little gold mouse had a heartfelt intimacy to them.
It was as if it had taken the two girls as its mothers.
Based on Duan Ling Tian's evaluations, even if he tried to drive this Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse infant away now, it would probably be unwilling to leave.
This was something he'd never imagined earlier.
"One million gold!" Right at this moment, a voice entered Duan Ling Tian's ears, and Duan Ling Tian once again looked at the auction hall.
In next to no time, he found out what the current auction item was from the discussions in the hall.
It was an offensive inscription.
Light Edge Inscription.
The Light Edge Inscription was a type of inscription that was capable of annihilating Nascent Soul martial artists, and if one attacked unexpectedly, even a ninth level Nascent Soul martial artist might be killed.
This Light Edge Inscriptions was far inferior in strength compared to the Bone Corrosion Inscription that Duan Ling Tian refined.
However, in the outside, it was still an extremely precious existence.
