Lin Yuan pulled Chu Ci toward the masked man’s counter.
Before encountering it, Lin Yuan hadn’t even dared to choose the Blue Flash Butterfly. He hadn’t put the Blue Flash Butterfly within his consideration during his contemplation because of the rarity. However, since he found one now, and it was a coincidental encounter, it was definitely a great opportunity.
Lin Yuan didn’t have a reason not to grab this opportunity. Thus, he had already silently decided to obtain this Blue Flash Butterfly no matter what.
Chu Ci could see that Lin Yuan’s expression had turned serious when he was walking toward the four cocoons. She simply followed Lin Yuan silently and carefully observed the four cocoons. She couldn’t see anything abnormal with them, but she knew that the cocoons were extraordinary because Lin Yuan viewed them with such seriousness.
“Could I ask for the price of the four cocoons?” Lin Yuan asked.
When the voice reached the masked man’s ears, he didn’t stand up and just responded indifferently, “I will only accept if you take them all. You just have to pay me 120 Radiance dollars, and you can take them all.”
Lin Yuan was astonished. Although 120 Radiance dollars wasn’t a price that was enough to purchase a Blue Flash Butterfly, it was still too expensive for cocoons.
After all, it was impossible to check what the cocoons contained. Each cocoon was like a fortune bag as it was unknown what would fly out of the cocoon. As such, it was extremely rare for cocoons to be sold on the market.
Lin Yuan might want the Blue Flash Butterfly, but he wouldn’t immediately decide to purchase these four cocoons.
Just as he was thinking of how to counteroffer, a middle-aged lady beside Lin Yuan suddenly said, “Young man, don’t be cheated! This person has been here for several days. It is unknown what backhanded methods he has actually used to set up a stall with four butterfly cocoons! How can butterfly cocoons be qualified to be sold in the Rare Lifeform Pavilion!? The other stalls are only selling butterfly cocoons for 50,000 Federation dollars, but this person is selling one cocoon for 30 Radiance dollars. Will a Bronze fey fly out of it directly?”
The middle-aged lady was obviously afraid that Lin Yuan might be swindled and had spoken slightly louder. Numerous people in the vicinity started to look in their direction.
At that moment, Lin Yuan heard the masked man’s exhausted and hoarse voice. “These four cocoons are all butterfly cocoons. They all came from the depths of the Endless Forest.”
The masked man spoke indifferently and stopped talking afterward.
The middle-aged lady beside Lin Yuan was even angrier now as she said, “The shortest tree in the depths of the Endless Forest is already 30 meters in height. The cocoons are hidden under the leaves of those giant trees. How can you even find them?”
When Lin Yuan heard the masked man’s words, he felt an obstinate tone within those words stimulated his heart. The explanation might be obstinate and was weak in strength, but it was lonesome and abnormally determined.
Clamor echoed in the surroundings, constantly getting louder. This store was now the liveliest place on the Rare Lifeform Pavilion’s first floor.
All things in this world couldn’t escape a phenomenon like the eye of a hurricane. It was how everyone was gathered in the same direction. The store was now the eye of the hurricane, and it was constantly attracting everyone.
At that moment, a Rare Lifeform Pavilion’s attendant wearing special clothing approached. When the attendant took a look at the situation, he immediately said to the middle-aged lady, who was chattering nonstop, “Auntie, I know you might be kindhearted, but the Rare Lifeform Pavilion’s stores are all approved by the Rare Lifeform Pavilion.”
When the middle-aged lady heard that, and mostly due to the Rare Lifeform Pavilion as a guarantee, she didn’t speak in a tone as though she was speaking with a swidler. However, she still pointed at the four cocoons and asked, “Why are these four butterfly cocoons qualified to be in the Rare Lifeform Pavilion? Isn’t it impossible to check the butterfly species while they are still metamorphosing within the cocoon?”
The middle-aged lady’s words stumped the staff member as he didn’t know what to say for a moment. I cannot possibly say that the management asked me to provide special treatment, right?
The staff member was also feeling doubtful as to why the management would provide such great treatment to a depressed masked man. They had even broken a common rule regarding the Rare Lifeform Pavilion’s first floor by making an exception.
Could it be because of wealth and authority? But it’s obviously impossible with the likes of this masked man. What else could it be? I really cannot think of a reason.
At that moment, the masked man’s mobile phone rang. He picked up the call, and his body immediately tensed up.
Lin Yuan might not be able to see the masked man’s face, but he knew that it was definitely not calm.
After the call, the masked man looked at Lin Yuan and said, “If you wish to buy them tomorrow, come at the same time in the evening. I can give you proof that I obtained these butterfly cocoons in the depths of the Endless Forest.”
The masked man then left the Rare Lifeform Pavilion in a hurry.
Lin Yuan didn’t expect that his slight hesitation had caused so many mishaps.
Now that the seller had left, it was obvious that the trade wasn’t going to happen. Since the masked man had already said he would be there the next day, Lin Yuan decided to return tomorrow.
Lin Yuan didn’t really have peace of mind since he hadn’t completed the trade and obtained the Blue Flash Butterfly. At the same time, Lin Yuan had an idea. If he were to find another good fey, as long as he could afford it, he wouldn’t hesitate. Otherwise, the opportunity might just slip away in an instant.
After experiencing this incident, Lin Yuan wasn’t in the mood to continue shopping around the Rare Lifeform Pavilion’s first floor.
If he could complete this trade tomorrow, one of these four butterfly cocoons would contain the Vajra Butterfly. Thus, Chu Ci would also obtain her second fey. Everything would be decided tomorrow night.
After sending Chu Ci back to the academy, Lin Yuan took a car and arrived at the Creation Master Association’s vicinity. He then looked for a place to reside and prepared to participate in the Creation Master exam tomorrow morning.
In the city lord residence, which wasn’t far from the Creation Master Association, was a woman seated on the city lord residence’s lord seat. She was wearing alizarin, crimson clothes.
She spoke to three individuals who were standing before her.
“Add twice as many men at the dimensional rifts around Redbud City’s vicinity. Reinforcements must be provided within two months. Put tomorrow’s matters aside and prepare a proposal to discuss with me at night.”
Two of the men acknowledged and withdrew from the place, while an old man continued to stand there. “Lordess Ling Xiao, may I know your opinion on the seeded participants from this batch’s spirit qi students?” he asked.
Ling Xiao took out a massive silk book. It was filled with rows of personal information, but almost all of them had been crossed out.
The silk book had over 100 nominations of seeded participants, and there were only five that had been given a tick. There were also close to 30 that were given a question mark.
“I have already decided on 5 of the 20 Redbud Hundred’s seeded participants. The remaining 34 will be kept for observation. Pay more attention to the student whose Elite fey has the Sacrifice ability. If the student has great potential, then add that student too.”
