This release is brought to you by our lovely donors : Xenoulla P., Sarah T., Ia V., Kanha T, and Fizreena H. ????????????????
Sorry for the late sponsored release guys, I seriously just finished translating this. I’ll try of release extra chapters next week to make up for the late release if I can! Anyways, enjoy!
The previous bidding increased by only 10- 20 taels but the person who just spoke increased the bid from 300 taels to 500 taels. 500 taels was enough money to support an ordinary family for the rest of their lives. But this money was used to buy a night with that lady. This was the highest bid Mian Yue Lou had ever received. Though that lady was beautiful, was it really worth it?
As a result, when this bid was called out, everyone turned around and their gaze landed on the room on the second floor. A bamboo screen was suspended at the door and the inside was dimly lit. No one could see inside the room but the person inside could assess the situation on the outside clearly.
Hearing the bid jumped to 500 taels, Huangfu Wu Shuang found it fascinating as he narrowed his eyes and smiled. “Interesting, interesting….”
“Does Your Highness also want to join in on the fun?” Hua Zhu Yu asked in a lowered voice.
“We should assess the situation first.” Blinking his eyes, Huangfu Wu Shuang said, “Though this girl is not bad, she can’t compare to Wan Er, can’t even compare to our Bao Er. Xiao Bao Er, if you were female, the bid would definitely be higher!”
Hearing this, Hua Zhu Yu just calmly replied with a smile, “Your Highness sure knows how to jest!”
When everyone thought the person who shouted out 500 taels would have the night with the lady, a voice rang out from the room on the right that was also on the second floor. “600 tael!”
This room was just like the previous, concealed by a bamboo screen, preventing people from getting a clear view of the inside. Moreover, the one to yell out the bid was also hidden inside the room.
600 taels. This person truly throws money around recklessly. This bid was far from small, the Madam on stage was so startled she didn’t even know what to do. Even the white attired lady was surprised as her dark eyes sparkled with light.
It appears those two people were battling because of her. Don’t know how high the bid will rise!
The bid kept rising by a 100 taels. Neither bidder wanted to concede to the other. If Dan Hong knew she was worth such, don’t know how she’ll feel!
Witnessing such a fierce battle, Huangfu Wu Shuang was puzzled as he whispered, “You two take a look, is that lady that beautiful? I don’t really think so, how come the bid is so high?”
Jixiang quickly drew closer to Huangfu Wu Shuang and whispered, “Gongzi, this servant feels there is an issue with this lady therefore there is such a fierce battle. This servant heard that amongst Ying Shu Xie’s subordinates, there is a lady specialized in playing the qin. Before when she was performing, did you notice the few murderous underlying tunes? Though she meticulously concealed it, observant people can still notice it. She is even from Western Jiang, perhaps these bidders want to secretly seek the criminal Ying.”
Hearing this, Huangfu Wu Shuang’s face turned solemn, “So you’re saying they want her to find the criminal Ying?”
Hua Zhu Yu did not imagine that even Jixiang could recognize the murderous air laced within the previous song. On usual days he’s always obedient and docile with very few words. She didn’t think that he would know music so well.
While they were talking, the person in the room on the right had increased the bid to 1000 taels.
Indeed, this person is also throwing money around recklessly. At this time, the chatters amidst the hall had silenced. Everyone held their breaths and perked up their ears to hear clearer. If a needle was dropped at this precise moment, it would most likely be heard.
At this time, a lazy voice rang out, “1001 taels.”
After a brief silence, a ‘pu’ sound was heard. A guest had sprayed the tea in their mouth, drenching the person sitting in front of him who stood up and began spouting curses. But at this moment, no one was paying attention to them. Everyone turned around to take a peek at who the cute guest that shouted out 1001 taels was.
Everyone thought that the girl clad in white was exceptionally lucky, so many big shots were fighting over her like this.
Hua Zhu Yu didn’t think so many people would be interested in Ying Shu Xie like this. That night, Hua Zhu Yu instructed An Xiao Er to stealthily leak out a piece of news, saying that within the group of ladies coming from Western Jiang, there was one with excellent qin skills. She didn’t expect so many people would act upon hearing this news.
Those bidding probably did not anticipate the bid to take such a turn either.
Hua Zhu Yu followed everyone’s gaze and looked at the person who just bid. He was sitting in the northwest corner of the hall, adorned in a bright coral brocade robes embroidered with motifs of golden coins. Contrary to what one might expect, these clothings suited well with the lavish scene at Mian Yue Luo. He had an extraordinarily handsome face, exceedingly elegant. Just those beautiful peach blossom eyes which were focused on the lady in white on stage, had a one of a kind, bewitching wild beauty.
Hua Zhu Yu couldn’t help but furrow her brows. This person was unexpectedly Eastern Yan’s Rui Wang Dou Qian Jin.
There isn’t something wrong with this person right, in the past he came to the Northern Kingdom to propose to her and now he is here bidding. Furthermore, isn’t he the Eastern God of Wealth, yet he only increased the bid by 1 tael and wasn’t afraid of others ridicule.
Huangfu Wu Shuang also recognized Dou Qian Jin. As soon as he saw him, he coldly humphed, “ The night’s becoming increasingly interesting!”
“Gongzi, do you want to bid as well?” Jixiang cautiously asked.
“Lets wait till the last minute!” Huangfu Wu Shuang said with raised brows.
The two guests on the second floor continued to bid.
