"Is that so?"
Fang Xingjian suddenly laughed, "Then let's see who can make the highest offer."
Fang Xingjian then took out a stack of paper and put it on the table, "I'm offering 100,000 gold. I'll be taking all the Fire Deity Medicine you have here."
The attendant picked up the stack of paper and let out an astonished cry, "These are gold banknotes from the Central Bank! It's really 100,000 gold!"
The old man by the name of Black Spear was slightly stunned as he looked at Fang Xingjian with slight disbelief.
100,000 gold. Even if he himself brought out such a large amount of money, his heart would ache a lot. It was almost one-quarter of his assets. However, this amount had been casually tossed onto the table by this guy, as if he was simply tossing a few dollars.
He could not help but grab the gold banknotes from the attendant's hands, taking a closer look at it, then glare at Fang Xingjian and ask, "You're really paying 100,000 gold?"
Fang Xingjian spoke slowly, "That's right. If you can make a higher offer, I'll accept it and let you have the goods. What do you think?" Fang Xingjian looked as if he did not hold 100,000 gold in high regard at all.
In fact, this was how it was. With his current wealth, 100,000 gold was nothing, really.
And hearing that the man who called himself the Vicious Knight was really throwing out 100,000 gold to purchase the Fire Deity Medicine, everyone present was astonished and they all started talking among themselves.
The Ice Palace's Saint, next to Fang Xingjian, also looked at him in great astonishment. It looked as if she had not expected Fang Xingjian to be so rich.
Black Spear's countenance turned pale. He wanted to call for a higher price, but could not bear to part with the money. To him, one Fire Deity Medicine would be worth 100 gold at most, and he would be able to buy 1,000 sets of it with 100,000 gold. It would be enough to last him for 20 years. Who would be crazy enough to spend that much money on this?
In the end, Black Spear ended up not calling for the price. He merely threw a glare toward Fang Xingjian and said, "Ice Palace's Vicious Knight, right? I've remembered your name." With that, he turned to leave, as if not wanting to give the other party any more chances to humiliate him.
Fang Xingjian smiled, not saying a word. This time around, he was planning to defeat all the factions in the Great Western Region, in the capacity of a member of the Ice Palace. Evidently, he was not planning to keep a low profile.
The attendant next to him said, seemingly troubled, "Sir, we've only brought along 120 sets of this Fire Deity Medicine this time around. The 100,000 gold you're paying is too much."
"It's fine. Recommend me other cultivating medicine you guys have."
From there, the attendant started to introduce Fang Xingjian to the other cultivating medicine. Throughout the entire process, Fang Xingjian once again displayed how he could be wilful because of the wealth he owned. As long as it was something useful to him, he would buy everything in one go.
However, once the many boxes had been placed next to Fang Xingjian, the Ice Palace's Saint was unable to hold them all.
Seeing this, Fang Xingjian stretched out his palm and Tyrant activated the Gates of the Netherworld, engulfing all of the items.
This scene instantly shocked countless people present. The Ice Palace's Saint also looked at Fang Xingjian with a strange expression, and could not help but ask, "What is that?"
"It's just a small toy that can store items," Fang Xingjian spoke nonchalantly.
However, the people around him could clearly not be as calm as he was. To be able to twist and stretch out space, and even to stabilize the twisted space, forming a unique alternate dimension and storing items in it... This was something which was said that only Divine level experts could accomplish.
"How is that possible? To think that he can store things in alternate dimension"
"This is something which only Divine level experts can do. Could he be a Divine level expert?"
"How could he be a Divine level expert? It must be the bangle he is wearing."
Divine Remains Equipment! These words instantly appeared in everyone's minds and countless people stared at Fang Xingjian's bangle with a greedy gaze.
If not for the fact that they were not strong enough, and that the Eternal Night Society were the ones in charge of this place, they would have dashed up to snatch it.
It was because legend had it that the Divine Remains Equipment were the only equipments which could allow one to store items in alternate dimension.
The attendant continued to introduce Fang Xingjian to the various products.
"Sir, this is the Blood Changing Pill. It can clean up the blood vessels in the human body, including the rubbish in blood capillaries. It can also change one's physical disposition, helping in condensing the 'Gushing Vital Energy and Blood' specialty, and increasing the efficiency of the practitioner's circulation of vital energy and blood. One of it costs 1,000 gold."
"I'll take them all."
The attendant's grin was so wide that his eyes could no longer be seen. He continued to take out a long box, opened its lid, and revealed a colorful thin sheet glaze. "This is the Seven Oceans Fish King Ointment. The head of our Unicorn Trade Association has spent three months in the Northern Sea to catch the Glazed Fish King and then made the ointment using its essence. Taking this can help one condense three specialties, namely, the 'Underwater Breathing', 'Internal Circulation', and the 'Water Repellent Physique'."
"I'll get it." Fang Xingjian nodded.
On seeing this scene, the eyes of the Ice Palace's Saint had already turned white and felt numb. She finally understood that Fang Xingjian's wealth was absolutely overwhelming. He was just too rich.
However, as she felt numb, a hint of envy grew in her heart. Who would not like money? Especially when one was as rich as Fang Xingjian and could purchase that many cultivating resources and so much medicine. These things would greatly help one's cultivation.
Rich, powerful, and with a mysterious background. Her interest level in Fang Xingjian suddenly grew rapidly.
The onlookers around them kept on increasing as well. Seeing how Fang Xingjian was pumping out large amounts of money, there were people with envious gazes, but there were also people who secretly remembered Fang Xingjian's appearance and identity, and then set out to find out more about the Ice Palace.
However, there were also people who looked on in contempt, staring at Fang Xingjian as if they were looking at an idiot.
"What a profligate son, to be exposing his wealth like that. This is the gathering of martial arts practitioners in the Great Western Region and all the top notch experts across the Great Western Region are here. There are countless hidden experts around. To be spending money so arrogantly in a place like this... He is practically courting death."
"Haha, to be showing off his wealth like that, and even exposing his storage equipment. That Ice Palace won't have many good days left."
"Hehe, the Black Spear from the Black Wings has already set his eyes on him. He might be robbed in a few days."
Storage equipment was strategic equipment.
Against non-Divine level experts, one could take over the opponent's' weapons, equipment, and even attacks. How terrifying was this?!
It was almost omnipotent even if used for spying, assassination, or stealing.
It was especially good for breaking through various defenses and for absorbing the opponent's' defensive items, regardless of whether these were city walls, steel plates, Divine armors... With just a simple action, the user would be able to break through all of them.
How valuable was a piece of storage equipment? Anyone who came across one would develop a great greed for it.
A few of them looked at Fang Xingjian as if they were waiting to watch a good show. However, Fang Xingjian seemed to not feel anything at all. After he completed his shopping at the Unicorn Trade Association, he continued to shop at other stalls. He mostly wanted to buy various cultivation resources, especially things which could help him condense specialty seeds and increase his potential. It was almost as if he purchased everything he came across that fit the bill.
