One of these peaceful days, Murong Qingyan disguised herself and with Little White sneaked out of the Murong Estate.
“Master, where do you want to go?” Little White sat on her shoulder, holding a string of candied haws and slowly savored them.
“We will be leaving Murong family soon, but we’ve got to prepare first,” Murong Qingyan looked at her happy beast and smiled: “So we must get some savings.”
To leave Murong family as soon as possible, she obviously had to make some preparations. In the past few days, she had been diligently sorting and putting together things in her space. Amongst them, there were some low-level pills, which she intended to take to the auction.
“Master, that time you’ve helped that Qiuyuan Yi to treat his illness, you should have asked for some fees,” remembering that day, Little White became angry: “You’ve almost lost your life there!”
“It’s alright, it’s already in the past. Don’t get upset about it anymore,” Murong Qingyan shook her head, chuckling: “Besides, our aim was a drop of Heavenly Water back then. It’s a treasure that people can’t buy even if they had enough wealth to!”
“Oh…“ Little White sighed helplessly and immediately followed up with a question: “That again, Master, where are we going?”
“Auction House,” Murong Qingyan said with a smile: “A couple of days ago I found some pills in the space that could be sold there. Those are no longer useful to me, so it would be better to exchange them for some money.”
Soon, a person and a beast arrived at the Auction House.
Galuo Auction House was the largest auction house in the whole country. None knew who was the owner of this Auction House, but being able to openly use the word ‘Galuo’ in its name without fear or consequences, surely implied that the person behind it was not simple.
Once a month the Auction House would hold a special top-quality auction, where numerous treasures could be found. Such a grand occasion would naturally attract many high-level experts and senior officials.
Of course, this auction wouldn’t take place today. Murong Qingyan came here aiming for the upcoming one. If she wanted to sell her things for a good price, then she would better let them be sold at the top-grade auction.
At the entrance of the Auction House, two guards were chatting, trying to alleviate their boredom. Today wasn’t the day of the special auction, the Auction House was somewhat deserted, so the two of them were a bit lax.
While the guards were chatting, a young man came up to the doors of the Auction House. The young man wasn’t of a tall stature, his appearance could be said to be distinct, though not breathtakingly handsome, still, he would surely be picked out in the crowd.
However, what drew the attention of the guards most, was actually a ball of the white fur on the youth’s shoulders. When the youth came closer, they noticed that it was a little white beast. It was a general impression, that, usually, men would avoid raising such cute little beasts, only females would prefer those.
This person was, obviously, none else but Murong Qingyan in her disguise: instead of a petite young girl, she became a pretty youth. Even her birthmark was covered by a special technique.
Seeing that the youth was about to enter the Auction House, both guards came up to stop him: “Who are you and what business do you have in coming here?”
“I would like to meet your appraisal master. I have a couple of things to auction,” Murong Qingyan didn’t get angry when her way got obstructed but responded in a proper manner. After all, they were doing their duty.
Last week’s poll and the 4rth chapter:…
Ahhhhh! My tastes are too heavy …………. No-no, I must have misled them somehow… Yes, that must be it… Yes, definitely, that’s the case!
Well, minority definitely won, hands down, lol! During May I’ve read mostly zombie apocalypse novels (aren’t they yummy for the right mood!) and one set in the Outer Space… (and it was a mistake and a pure coincidence that I somehow clicked on that Outer space one). There were 3 good zombie novels, I even considered translating one of them (the story is good, not that run-of-the-mill, some cliches are unavoidable, but all in all it was a breath of a fresh air, the points that I disliked were…bearable).
Although I liked those (with minor dislikes… I don’t like racial and religious references. At all), I ended up enjoying the Outer Space one the most. But about it, we’ll talk later. Hopefully, you’ll see its first chapter this month. Don’t worry, it won’t interfere with IWM schedule. Due to health probs, I have to change (lessen) my working hours, so either my company approves it or I’ll have to look for a new job… It’s a headache but, hopefully, it will pass this month. Either way, with working from home(would I love that) and/or decrease in working hours, my time for translating shouldn’t face changes.
And since I’ve read Fast Transmigration novel (known as Quick Transmigration Cannon Fodder’s Record of Counterattacks) during Winter holidays…and since I’ve almost translated the 4rth chapter, expect it on the weekend, my precious! muahs~
