Nine days passed in a flash.

After these nine days, Ethan Xiao's cultivation has become more and more stable, and he has moved one step closer to the Qi Gathering Realm.

At noon, the scorching sun was in the sky.

Since he got up early, Ethan Xiao has already practiced "Bajiquan" once, and practiced "Soul Chasing Sword" for two hours.

"Ethan Xiao, it's time to eat."

Auntie May's voice came from outside the door. After that day, Auntie May's attitude towards Ethan Xiao softened a bit. Seeing that he was covered in sweat, she frowned and said, "Tomorrow is the birthday party of the head of the family. Miss asked me to ask you about your clothes. How is it?"

"Let's go later!"

"You can have a snack! The patriarch's birthday banquet, the famous people in Nanhuang City will come here, and many of them have been courted by young ladies. You are nothing compared to those talents, at least you should dress decently..."

Auntie May murmured to the side, "The one hundred taels that Miss gave you is enough to go to Treasure Pavilion to buy a good dress, remember to go, don't embarrass Miss again!"


Treasure Pavilion is located in the south of Nanhuang City, and it is divided into the outer cabinet and the cabinet.

Outer pavilions are mainly street stalls, with a wide variety of goods, but there is a mixture of good and bad, real and fake, and the quality is not guaranteed.

The cabinet deals in high-end goods, but the value is extremely expensive. Just a piece of clothing costs dozens of taels of silver, which is enough for an ordinary family of five to spend half a year, and ordinary people seldom spend it in the cabinet.


Ethan Xiao eyes lit up when he passed by a street stall.

The stall owner was a thin old man, and there was only a black iron dragon statue on the stall.

"Golden obsidian spirit?"

With the ability and experience of the life-threatening scholar in appreciating antique calligraphy and painting, Ethan Xiao can tell at a glance that there is a mystery in this statue, it is not an ordinary object.

"How do you sell this statue?"

The old man said: "Fifty taels of silver!"

Ethan Xiao rolled his eyes and said, "I want it!"

The old man showed joy, and he wanted to take the silver from Ethan Xiao's hand.

But at this moment, a lazy voice came from the side: "I want this statue!"

The person who came was a young man in a brocade robe, he was holding a folding fan and fanning it lightly, with a haughty expression on his face, he didn't take Ethan Xiao seriously at all.

Ethan Xiao face was slightly cold, and he said: "It seems that I saw this statue first, right?"

"Do you think it is yours first? Can you ask the stall owner if he will sell it to you?" The young man sneered, looked at the old man and said, "Old man, who are you going to sell this statue to?"

The old man pretended to be hesitant and said: "It is true that this little brother fell in love with it first..."

The young man said lightly: "I will pay one hundred taels!"

The old man quickly looked at Ethan Xiao.

The young man provocatively said: "What? You can't afford to pay for only one hundred taels?"

"One singing and one harmonizing, the coordination is very skillful."

Looking at the young and old man in front of him, Ethan Xiao sneered in his heart. Although the two of them disguised well, their detailed expressions could not escape his eyes.

Although this kind of trick can fool other people, it cannot fool the current self.

"If you want to change your left hand to your right hand, just take it away."

After finishing speaking, Ethan Xiao didn't take a second look, turned around and was about to leave. Although a statue containing a gold obsidian spirit was quite valuable, it didn't do much for him. He didn't have time to play with this young and old man. trick.


Ethan Xiao's reaction of directly giving up made the faces of the old man and the young man sink instantly. They had cooperated with this aggressive method many times before, but they didn't expect to fail this time.

"Little brother, don't go away. Although I love money, old man, I still have to be principled when doing business. You should be the first to see this statue. No matter how much other people pay, I will only sell this statue to you. Fifty Two, deal, never regret it!"

Seeing that the business was about to fail, the young man immediately gave the old man a wink, and then the old man rushed to Ethan Xiao and handed the statue to Ethan Xiao, for fear that Ethan Xiao would regret it.

"make a deal!"

Ethan Xiao didn't refuse, he casually threw the fifty taels of silver to the old man, and wanted to leave.


Seeing that the dust had settled, the young man suddenly burst out laughing: "Boy, I didn't expect you to have sharp eyesight. You know that I'm raising the price maliciously, and you don't want to spend more money, but so what, this statue is just a piece of trash. It's made of iron, it's not even worth a tael of silver, fifty taels, I've earned it with blood!"

"How is this going?"

"Didn't he also compete for this statue just now? Why did he suddenly say that this statue is fake? He and this old man are in the same group?"

The old man stepped forward respectfully, handed over fifty taels of silver to the young man, and said flatteringly, "Lord Bao is wise!"

"Fuck, this turned out to be a scam?"

"Lord Leopard? Is he Lei Bao, the young master of the Leo Thunder Gang?"

Seeing Ethan Xiao being deceived, everyone had no sympathy, but only gloated.

Leo Thunder shook fifty taels of silver in his hand: "Boy, there will be no pies in the sky this day. If it is really a priceless treasure, Lord Leopard, I would have put it away a long time ago. How can it be your turn? Hahaha..."

"Self-righteous, with blind eyes..."

Ethan Xiao took a look and smiled coldly.

At this moment……

Suddenly an old figure came from the crowd, walked straight to Ethan Xiao, and said in his eyes: "Little brother, I am very interested in this statue, can you lend me a look?"

Ethan Xiao shrugged and said, "Please do it!"

Yan Lao took the statue and looked at it carefully.

The more you look at him, the more dignified his expression becomes.

Seeing this, Leo Thunder showed a cold sarcasm, and said arrogantly: "Old man, you'd better not waste your time here. This is just scrap iron collected by my young master for a tael of silver, it is not worth anything at all,... "

The old man just glanced back at Leo Thunder, and said indifferently: "I, Yan Mingli, have been in charge of the Treasure Pavilion for thirty years. Could it be that I can't even tell the difference between scrap iron and treasure?"

"What? He turned out to be Yan Mingli?"

"Damn it, Mr. Yan is the owner of the Treasure Pavilion, and his ability to appraise treasures is the best in the southern deserted city. He actually fell in love with this statue. Could it be a treasure?"

"Jane, Treasure?"

Leo Thunder was stunned.

He has naturally heard the name of Yan Mingli, who is the leader in the treasure appraisal industry in Nanhuang City, swallowed a mouthful of saliva with a grunt, and Leo Thunder tentatively said: "Yan, Yan Lao, you must be mistaken, right? Is this really true?" It's just a piece of scrap iron..."


Yan Lao turned around and slapped Leo Thunder's eyes with gold stars, snorted coldly, and said proudly: "Even if your father is here, I dare not say that I am wrong." Gently stroking the statue with his palm, Yan Lao asked He said, "Little brother, are you willing to sell this statue?"

Xiao Yi said: "If the price is right, it's natural to sell!"

Yan Lao tentatively asked, "How about ten thousand taels?"


There was a sound of gasping for air from around.

Especially Leo Thunder eyes twitched, his eyes turned red, staring at the statue in Yan Lao's hand.

Ten thousand taels of silver!

He bought it for only one tael, but this is ten thousand times!

Just now, he was complacent about cheating Ethan Xiao fifty taels, thinking that Ethan Xiao was a fool who didn't understand anything, but in the blink of an eye, he became a treasure worth tens of thousands of taels?

Ethan Xiao said lightly: "Your price is very dishonest!"


"Is ten thousand taels too low?"

More and more people gathered around, seeing Ethan Xiao rejecting Yan Lao's offer, they were all dumbfounded.

Leo Thunder was on fire with jealousy, and his evil turned to gallbladder. Since I can't get it, I won't let you get it, so I immediately shouted: "Boy, why are you talking to Yan Lao? It's your good fortune that Yan Lao took a fancy to your things." , you should take the initiative to give it to the old man..."


Yan Lao didn't pay attention to Leo Thunder at all, he just nodded after pondering for a moment: "Little brother is right, for a statue made of such a complete gold obsidian, 10,000 taels is really old and stingy. How about it, I will give you five Wanliang, how about it?"


Leo Thunder figure flickered and he almost fell down.

Fifty thousand taels?

Lao Tzu worked so hard to set up a scheme to buy a hundred taels and be complacent, but in the end he handed over a treasure worth fifty thousand taels to others?

Me, my Tema's...

Leo Thunder wanted to slap himself hard.

"It's still low!"Ethan Xiao laughed.


Yan Lao frowned, and a look of displeasure appeared on his face.

Fifty thousand taels is already a very reasonable price, yet Ethan Xiao is still not satisfied?

Xiao Yi sighed, and said: "I thought you would be in charge of the Treasure Pavilion, and your ability to appraise treasures should not disappoint me, but now it seems that it is nothing more than that!"

Yan Lao's face darkened.

He has been in charge of the Treasure Pavilion for more than thirty years, and has seen countless treasures. No one has ever dared to question his ability to appraise treasures. Now Ethan Xiao actually said that he was nothing more than that? Even with Yan Lao's disposition, there was a little more anger on his face.

Leo Thunder was overjoyed when he saw this, and snapped, "Bold! Mr. Yan has seen more treasures than you have eaten. What are you? How dare you question Mr. Yan's ability to appraise treasures?"

Ethan Xiao ignored Leo Thunder directly, and his clear eyes fell on Old Yan: "If it's a statue made of gold obsidian, fifty thousand taels is indeed fair, but what if it's a golden obsidian spirit?"


Yan Lao was shocked, and his breathing became rapid: "Golden Yaoshiling? You mean this statue was made by Jinyaoshiling?"

Xiao Yi said: "You will know once you try it!"

Yan Lao flicked his fingers, and pure vitality poured into the statue.


The pitch-black statue suddenly burst into dazzling light, and the dragon's body suddenly turned into a golden color, and there was a wave-like golden liquid flowing inside the dragon's body.

"It's really a golden obsidian stone spirit! I never thought that I, Yan Mingli, would have a chance to meet a golden obsidian stone spirit in this life, hahaha..."

Yan Lao was so excited that he burst into tears, and Leo Thunder, who was watching the game, was completely dumbfounded.

What kind of treasure is this?

Even the aloof Yan Lao cried excitedly?

Leo Thunder swallowed his saliva, and looked tentatively at Yan Lao: "Yan, Yan Lao, is this statue really worth 50,000 yuan?"

Old Yan said: "Fifty thousand? Hmph, it's almost doubled!"


Leo Thunder froze in place as if struck by lightning.

Yan Lao looked at Ethan Xiao a little more appreciatively, even he didn't see that it was a golden obsidian stone spirit, and Ethan Xiao's methods in appraising treasures were also recognized by him, and said in a deep voice: "Little brother, this I would like to offer one hundred thousand taels for the statue, but what do you think my little brother would like?"

Ethan Xiao nodded: "Yes!"

Yan Lao glanced at the more and more people around, and frowned: "There are so many people here, let's go to the cabinet to discuss in detail?"

The two left side by side.

Everyone looked at the dumbfounded Leo Thunder, their eyes full of sarcasm and pity: "It's great, this Black Tiger Gang has set up many tricks to harm people, today it is really a steal!"

"A treasure worth 100,000 yuan, he gave it away deliberately..."

"This is called evil comes with evil!"

Leo Thunder trembled all over, and the words from all around slapped his face hard like an invisible slap, a burst of burning pain!

"I, my money..."

Leo Thunder felt dizzy and dizzy, his eyes were full of ferocity and madness, he stared at Ethan Xiao's leaving back, "You bastard, you dare to take food from this young man, I will definitely make you lose your temper!" Spit it out with profit!"
