Everyone glanced at Nikki, sizing her up.
“Hmph! Do you think one billion is impressive? I’ll pay 1.5 billion!” Julian raised the bid again.
The Nicholsons may not have much of anything else, but they certainly had a lot of money.
Not to mention, recently, he was in luck and earned a few billions. He had so much money now that he didn’t know how to spend it.
“Two billion!” Nikki would not let up.
The Jade Maiden Sisterhood had a budget of around five billion. As long as she could get the Jade Maiden Scroll, spending it all wasn’t a problem.
“My, my. Are you challenging me? I’m curious to see what you’re capable of. Three billion!” Julian thundered with confidence.
When he raised the price, several buyers gave up and left. Although the Jade Maiden Scripture was a precious treasure, it came with a major limitation. It was only useful for women.
While spending a few hundred million to please their lover wasn’t an issue, a few billion wasn’t worth it.
“Nikki, how much can your guild afford to pay?” Dustin asked suddenly.
“About five billion, why?” Nikki raised an eyebrow.
“Alright, sounds good.” Dustin nodded.
He raised his hand. “We’ll pay five billion.”
Many were shocked when they heard the amount. Did they think five billion could fall from the sky?
“That’s crazy? Who raises the price like that?”
“I’m done playing. What’s this nonsense of adding two billion in one go?”
Following the muttered complaints, several buyers left the room.
“Hmph! Let’s see how long you can keep up with your arrogance!” The man behind the mask stood up and left, his gaze filled with resentment.
However, he didn’t leave immediately. Instead, he found a secluded corner and made a call.
“Hello, Miranda, I’ve spotted that guy. This time, we mustn’t let him get away!”
Meanwhile, back inside the private room on the second floor.
As soon as they heard those words, everyone grew excited. Especially the group of women could not hide their greedy expressions.
They weren’t interested in the prospect of greatly enhanced skills. They cared about the promise of long life and eternal youth. Every woman cared about their looks and desired to maintain a youthful look.
“Mr. Nicholson, you must not let the treasure fall into someone else’s hands. We must take it home!” The haughty women were excited as their eyes burned with hunger.
“Don’t worry. No one will dare take it from us as long as I am here. No one has the power to do so either!” Julian raised his head, looking confident.
“I wonder if Miranda will be happy if I give this treasure to her as a gift,” The man in the golden mask murmured to himself.
“Name a price; I’m taking it home with me!” Nikki was impatient.
“Its value is not up to me but to you, my fellow guests. Whatever you suggest as the price will be the price.” Samuel smiled faintly and reflected the question to them.
“You’re letting me decide the value of it? Alright, I’ll pay ten million!” Julian raised his index. finger, taking the lead.
“Hmph! What’s a measly ten million? I’ll pay 50 million for it!”
’50 million for the Jade Maiden Scripture? You must be dreaming! I’ll pay 100 million!”
“200 million here!”
Within a minute, the price of the Jade Maiden Scripture broke through the hundred million
Everyone knew ancient and long–lost knowledge like the Jade Maiden Scripture was priceless. It couldn’t be bought with just money.
Today, their wealth would determine who takes the treasure home.
“I’m offering one billion!” With gritted teeth, Nikki raised the price. Immediately, the voices.
