Li Nuo turned a deaf ear to the shouts of the cultivators in the audience and simply gestured sideways, summoning a maidservant to immediately present the auction item.
This time, there was no red cloth to conceal the item, so everyone was able to see that it was actually some kind of ore.
This ore was about the size of a small melon, its whole-body round and radiant, exuding a light blue colour.
Judging from the posture of the maidservant holding it, this item was not heavy.
The noise in the audience gradually subsided as everyone’s eyes were attracted to this ore, many staring curiously while Divine Senses were also being extended from the private rooms, constantly scanning this unknown item.
However, no one was able to see any clues.
Even Yang Kai frowned with a suspicious look on his face.
One had to know that there were few things in this world he could not see through with his current Divine Sense, but this ore was one of them. From this fact alone, even if this last auction item was not a priceless supreme treasure, it was still a rare and valuable item.
Yang Kai’s interest was thus stimulated.
On the central platform, Li Nuo lightly curled her red lips and said softly, “This item was something my Clear Sky Auction House coincidentally obtained, and ever since we did, we have been studying it; unfortunately, no one from Clear Sky Auction House has been able to identify its use as of yet and we were only able to conclude that it is a good Artifact Refining material. Today, with so many powerful masters present, perhaps there is a Sir who will be able to identify this bead and knows its true purpose. This Mistress hopes that if any Sir is able to do so, please enlighten me to dispel this Mistress’ doubts.”
“What nonsense are you spouting? How could you bring something like this out to auction?” Someone immediately yelled impatiently.
Li Nuo just smiled lightly however and declared, “The final auction item, the unknown Artifact Refining material, base price…30 million!”
In the hall, many cultivators burst into laughter after experiencing a brief silence. Obviously, they all felt that Li Nuo’s reserve price was ridiculous.
Li Nuo did not care though, and just stood atop the stage with a smile on her face.
As she had said, this item had been studied by Clear Sky Auction House for many years, but nothing was ever discovered about it. Even Aunt Chun was unable to judge what it was for, but that did not hinder its value.
Li Nuo had compared it with some Origin King Grade Artifact Refining materials already but discovered that no matter which Origin King Grade material it was, it was not as firm as this.
In other words, this ore was at least Artifact Refining material at the Origin King Grade.
It would be best if this thing could be sold, but it also did not matter if it couldn’t be. It would be perfectly acceptable for this auction to fail.
After a long time, with no one bidding, it seemed this last auction item was destined to not be sold. Li Nuo glanced around with her beautiful eyes, and couldn’t help showing a look of disappointment realizing this.
“Lady Li, could you allow this King to investigate that item?” Suddenly, a calm voice spoke from one of the private rooms.
Li Nuo followed the voice to its source and discovered it belonged to the occupant of Room A5. Smiling lightly, she nodded and said, “Naturally that is not a problem. Please wait a moment, Sir.”
Saying so, she gestured to the maidservant and had her quickly walk towards the room where Yang Kai was.
In Room A5, Yang Kai frowned as a solemn look appeared on his face.
Hua You Meng asked in surprise, “Sir, do you recognize this thing?”
Yang Kai shook his head slowly, “I’m not sure, that’s why I want to take a closer look.”
Hua You Meng nodded.
Nearby, in Room A1, Jiang Chang Feng’s face changed slightly as his expression turned sullen, “Great Elder, the one who spoke just now is ‘that’ man.”
Gong Sun Liang raised his brow before narrowing his eyes, “My Purple Star’s Third Venerable?”
“Indeed!” Jiang Chang Feng nodded sincerely, “Just a few days ago, this Jiang was ordered by you to invite this person to the Inner City, but he rudely refused. This Jiang specifically explained that Great Elder had requested to meet with him, but he refused to give any face. This man is simply too arrogant.”
Gong Sun Liang stroked his beard and snickered, “Anyone who has the ability can be arrogant. This old master wanted to find a chance to meet this person another day, but I didn’t expect to meet him here today. Since that’s the case… we can talk now. This old master wants to see if this Venerable’s strength is real or if he is just a fraud!”
Jiang Chang Feng was surprised when he heard these words as a grin appeared on his face just imagining Yang Kai’s coming misfortune. He knew that, while Gong Sun Liang acted as if he did not care on the surface, in truth, he was very upset about not being given any face.
Inside Room A5, Yang Kai held the unknown auction item and observed it solemnly, probing it with his Divine Sense.
Hua You Meng and the maidservant did not dare to bother him.
At first, nothing unusual stood out, but at a certain moment, Yang Kai’s complexion could not help changing and a piercing light flashed across his eyes, as if he had been attacked by someone and he pushed his Divine Sense madly to condense a barrier around him.
A faint sound rang out as Yang Kai’s Divine Sense defense was broken in an instant, but just as he was about to resist again, suddenly, everything subsided.
The entire auction house was now silent, with ninety-nine percent of the cultivators present pale and trembling.
The moment when Yang Kai Divine Sense broke out, it was as if a dormant dragon had stuck its head out from its cave, causing everyone to cower in fear.

Fortunately, this ominous pressure disappeared as quickly as it appeared, otherwise, many in the audience would have had their minds crushed.
