Chapter 885: I Want Two Soul-Gathering Immortal Lotuses
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“I don’t want the nomological fragments. I offer 20 Primordial Chaos Dao Fruits for 14 drops of First Evolution True Dew,” someone offered immediately.
“I only want 17 drops…”
There was a continuous influx of people who wanted to trade with Di Jiu, which delighted him immensely. He had only obtained 103 drops of First Evolution True Dew and had little use for it since he cultivated the Nomological Dao and had obtained a successful Tempered Body. He had not expected that he could trade it for Primordial Chaos Dao Fruit here.
The Primordial Chaos Dao Fruit he was looking for did not need to be very valuable. Ordinary ones were fine for him, for he intended to use them to upgrade and become a Primordial Chaos Alchemy Saint.
Di Jiu said, “Fellow Daoists, I only have 25 drops of First Evolution True Dew in total. I wish to trade two Primordial Chaos Dao Fruits for one drop of First Evolution True Dew. Of course, I do not care about the quality of these Dao Fruits. Bid now if you agree to this condition.”
Di Jiu still had some Primordial Chaos Dao Fruits on him. He would definitely be able to become a Primordial Chaos Alchemy Saint if he obtained 50 more Primordial Chaos Dao Fruits by trading.
Di Jiu’s price was indeed a little steep, but there were still people who were willing to pay.
The 25 drops of First Evolution True Dew were quickly traded for 50 Primordial Chaos Dao Fruits. Even Jia Mai, who had started this round of trading, barely managed to secure the last two drops of First Evolution True Dew.
Jia Mai hated Di Jiu for obtaining only two drops of First Evolution True Dew and blamed it all on Di Jiu’s greediness. He had yet to even see a glimpse of the nomological fragment.
Di Jiu could not read Jia Mai’s thoughts, although he would not have been concerned even if he could. He would have been unafraid if he had still been at the perfected Primordial Chaos Realm, let alone now that he had already successfully attained Dao Integration.
Obtaining the Primordial Chaos Dao Fruits was an unexpected surprise, but Di Jiu did not want to waste too much time there. He knew that the people there possessed many quality items he could not quite obtain through trade. Therefore, he decided to quickly trade what he needed before leaving.
Another cultivator finished trading, and Di Jiu speedily pressed the trading button. He knew that the First Evolution True Dew was valuable and many people there wanted it, but he would not be able to trade it for the Soul-Gathering Immortal Lotus. Such a treasure would certainly be extremely valuable, many times more so than the First Evolution True Dew.
The cultivators in the trading hall perked up when they saw that the light of the trading array before Di Jiu had lit up once again. Today, many people had come for the Connate treasure Di Jiu had spoken about. There were indeed many people there, but less than 25 percent of them had come to trade.
Since Di Jiu had pressed the trading button after trading the 25 drops of First Evolution True Dew, this round had to be reserved for the Connate treasure.
No one would think that Di Jiu believed he was too rich. It would all depend on what Di Jiu wanted.
Di Jiu lifted a jade bottle and said, “I have a drop of Quintessential Essence of the Universe here…”
The entire hall immediately burst into an uproar. The cultivators gathered there were, or at the very least had once been, all apex experts. Their horizons and knowledge were very broad, but they still got excited when they learned about the Quintessential Essence of the Universe.
This was a treasure that everyone yearned to have. Those who had been resurrected by using Creation Dao runes craved it even more. It was something that could allow them to swiftly merge with the Dao runes, cleanse their soul and body, as well as allow them to attain greater heights. They could not understand how a lowly weakling at the Dao Transformation could obtain a priceless universe treasure like the Quintessential Essence of the Universe.
Upon seeing the uproar that occurred, Di Jiu realized that the Quintessential Essence of the Universe was extremely valuable to the people there. They might have charged up to snatch the treasure had this place not been securely guarded by arrays.
Unfortunately, he only had seven drops of Quintessential Essence of the Universe and would be left with six after this trade. He really did not want to trade the Quintessential Essence of the Universe if he had a choice. After all, every drop represented a life.
“Is this the Connate treasure you were referring to, Daoist?” the black-robed old man suddenly asked.
Di Jiu replied calmly, “That’s right. Or could one drop of Quintessential Essence of the Universe be incomparable to a Connate treasure? In that case, I will put it away.”
“Of course it is. What do you want to exchange it for?” a man with an indistinct face said. Di Jiu scanned this man with his gaze, as he suspected that the latter was at least at the half-step third step or maybe was already at the third step.
Plus, he noticed that even the black-robed old man fell silent when this man started speaking, which was an indication of the man’s status.
“Okay, I want to trade it for two Soul-Gathering Immortal Lotuses…”
Everyone looked at a man wearing a tall white crown.
Upon following everyone’s gaze, Di Jiu suspected that this man might be Itinerant Yi Ji.
Everyone coveted the Quintessential Essence of the Universe, but Di Jiu’s demand was a little outrageous. Under normal circumstances, the Soul-Gathering Immortal Lotus was worth less than the Quintessential Essence of the Universe. However, in the Dao Abyss, the Soul-Gathering Immortal Lotus was considered a quality item as well. Sometimes, the lotus was even more valuable than the Quintessential Essence of the Universe.
As expected, the man wearing the tall white crown said frostily, “Two Soul-Gathering Immortal Lotuses for only one drop of Quintessential Essence of the Universe?”
This man had to be Yi Ji and he definitely owned some Soul-Gathering Immortal Lotuses, or he would have not even bothered speaking.
Di Jiu said coolly, “This is my price, take it or leave it. I’m not forcing anyone to trade with me. Besides, all of you here are more experienced than me. You guys should know best whether you should trade or not.”
The cultivator wearing the tall white crown said slowly, “I have a Soul-Gathering Immortal Lotus. One Soul-Gathering Immortal Lotus for one drop of Quintessential Essence of the Universe.”
“Rejected,” Di Jiu answered without hesitation.
If no one else offered two Soul-Gathering Immortal Lotuses, he intended to slowly negotiate with Yi Ji. However, he could sense that Yi Ji was not simple. No one else spoke up during their short exchange, and the trading hall was completely silent. This was completely different from the atmosphere when he had been trading with Jia Mai.
Yi Ji was clearly very strong, but in Di Jiu’s opinion, he had yet to attain the third step.
“Take out that Connate treasure of yours. I will give you two Soul-Gathering Immortal Lotuses in exchange for that and one drop of Quintessential Essence of the Universe,” Yi Ji drawled.
Di Jiu ignored Yi Ji. Instead, he looked at the rest and said, “Does anyone want to have an exchange? If you do not, I will be heading to the Mountain Gaze.”
Di Jiu knew that fighting was banned on the path toward the Mountain Gaze, as this was a tacit rule of the Dao Abyss. Yi Ji would not consider ambushing him after he left the trading hall if he mentioned that he wanted to head to the Mountain Gaze.
Di Jiu was not afraid of Yi Ji, as he was certain that he could not kill an expert like him that easily. If he lost sight of Yi Ji, he would not be able to obtain even one Soul-Gathering Immortal Lotus. Besides, he would not be able to gain possession of Yi Ji’s belongings even if he killed the man, for these people owned a world of their own. No one could take these worlds away and gain access to them.
“You’re really fearless, young man. Alright, I’ll trade with you.” Yi Ji slapped his palm on the table in front of him and two jade boxes appeared on the table before Di Jiu. Evidently, Yi Ji really wanted the Quintessential Essence of the Universe.
Di Jiu unhurriedly opened the two jade boxes and checked their contents. He felt puzzled upon confirming that there were two Soul-Gathering Immortal Lotuses. He had obtained them a tad too easily.
Then, he took out a jade bottle and placed it on the Teleportation Array pattern before sending it out.
Yi Ji smirked when he saw Di Jiu do that.
