Chapter 696: Your Sincerity Is Really Cheap!
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
The words of the Li Family’s young master dropped the entire hall of the Utopia Faction into a dead silence!
All apprentices of the Utopia Faction in the hall were totally shocked.
The pupils of several Elders at the Void Training Stage contracted; their hands hidden in their sleeves also trembled a bit!
Making eye contact, they found shock and ecstasy in each other’s eyes!
Even the mighty leader of the Utopia Faction also changed his expression at this time!
An Expert spell!
One million best-grade Spirit Stones!
Several magic artifacts!
These betrothal gifts were far more than the Utopia Faction had ever imagined possible!
They never expected that their Holy Virgin and this marriage were so important for the Li Family!
After all, through this win-win cooperation, the status of both the parties could realize a giant leap in the World of Cultivators in the future!
Therefore, as long as the Utopia Faction was willing to do that, they would accept the marriage request even if the Li Family only offered tens of thousands of best-grade Spirit Stones.
So, when the Li Family offered one million best-grade Spirit Stones and an Expert spell, all the members of the Utopia Faction just couldn’t keep calm anymore. Even Liu Jingning was shocked by all this! She knew clearly the value of an Expert spell, which could be deemed as a priceless treasure in the World of Cultivators!
The Utopia Faction had spent a lot of time and effort to obtain an Expert spell. After obtaining this one, they could activate two Expert spells at the same time. Then, the protective effect of these two spells would almost be identical to the effect of a Spiritual spell. And the defensive level of the Utopia Faction would be the same as that of the rest of the overlords in the East Continent!
“This is incredible! I didn’t expect the Li Family could make such a big investment!”
“It seems the young master of the Li Family likes our Holy Virgin very much!”
“Oh, no! Our Holy Virgin is about to marry someone! My heart is bleeding!”
“Nonsense! Don’t tell me you have the guts to cast greedy eyes on our Holy Virgin!”
“Eh…I dare not do that! I’m afraid only a scanty few people in this world could steer our Holy Virgin!”
“Of course! The nickname ‘She-devil’ of our Holy Virgin didn’t come out of nowhere! I doubt the young master of the Li Family will be able to steer her after marrying her!”
Many of the Utopia Faction’s apprentices were talking in low voices. Originally, they didn’t dare to talk about this publicly. Now, after being shocked by the Expert spell, they couldn’t help but start their discussion.
The apprentices had almost gone wild. The Elders of the Utopia Faction were also quite excited!
This was an Expert spell! Although it was not as precious as a Holy Virgin, they were not trading it for their Holy Virgin. They would obtain the spell by connecting with the Li Family through this marriage! After their marriage, Liu Jingning would still be their Holy Virgin. The Utopia Faction would have a reliable ally. Anyway, the Utopia Faction would get a fantastic bargain!
“Just an Expert spell? Is it impressive? It’s nothing for me!”
At this time, a dissonant voice echoed in the hall, which came from Xu Que!
He shook his head and said disdainfully, as he picked his ears calmly, “Do you want to marry my little sister with an Expert spell and one million best-grade Spirit Stones? You are too naive! How could my beautiful and wild Sister Jingning accept these petty things as the betrothal gifts?”
The apprentices and Elders of the Utopia Faction came to themselves suddenly.
Right! It seems like this guy also has Expert spells!
Members of the Utopia Faction who had gone to the Celestial Burial Valley mentioned that Xu Que had set up an Expert spell outside the valley directly to facilitate Jiang Hongyan to cross her Heavenly Tribulations, which shocked many people at that time!
“Heh-heh!” the young master of the Li Family laughed suddenly. Then, he glanced at Xu Que and sneered, “I know you also have Expert spells! Also, what you said is correct! An Expert spell and one million best-grade Spirit Stones are not good enough for the Holy Virgin!”
What? What does he mean?
Many apprentices and Elders of the Utopia Faction were surprised! Does it mean he still has other betrothal gifts?
“Holy Virgin Liu!”
At this time, the young master of the Li Family folded his hands gracefully as he looked at Liu Jingning.
Liu Jingning frowned slightly and asked indifferently, “What?”
In normal times, she wouldn’t show her feelings through her face no matter how much she disliked someone. However, all these people had joined against Xu Que. Even though the young master of the Li Family hadn’t done anything wrong, she was not in a mood to smile at him!
However, the young master of the Li Family ignored Liu Jingning’s reaction. He continued to behave gently and gracefully with a calm smile on his face. It seemed he had something secure to rely on!
“Do you have the magic artifact of my Second Uncle with you?” he asked with a faint smile.
“It’s here!” Liu Jingning replied concisely as she took out the magic artifact.
It was a palm-sized blue jade that was crystal clear. A lot of runes were carved on the jade, which could be effective as long as it was activated.
The young master of the Li Family smiled and turned to the Faction Leader of the Utopia Faction and said, folding his hands, “Faction Leader Mo, this magic artifact is also one of the betrothal gifts!”
“Oh?” the Faction Leader looked at the young master of the Li Family puzzledly, along with all the other people in the hall.
They knew clearly that the young master still had something to say. If it was just an ordinary magic artifact, he wouldn’t have mentioned it separately!
As expected, the young master turned around and pointed at a big jade box on the ground and said with a faint smile, “This Expert spell would be extremely powerful together with the magic artifact in the Holy Virgin’s hand. Together with your current Expert spell, the three of them will be as powerful as a genuine Spiritual spell!”
“What?” several Elders of the Utopia Faction shouted!
Even the Faction Leader of the Utopia Faction changed his expression on the spot! A genuine Spiritual spell! In the East Continent, only the Jiang Family and the Gong Family had this kind of spell!
But now, in order to marry Liu Jingning, the young master of the Li Family had made such a big investment to help the Utopia Faction to set up a Spiritual spell! This betrothal gift was too rich and incredible!
All at once, only the loud breathing of the Utopia Faction’s members could be heard in the silent hall.
Even Liu Jingning couldn’t hold her seat now because of the great shock in her heart!
She never expected the Li Family could be so rich and generous. She had been pushed into a tight corner!
Although her status was quite high as the Holy Virgin, she was a member of the Utopia Faction!
If she didn’t want to accept the proposal for the betrothal gift as just an Expert spell, the entire Utopia Faction would respect her choice. However, if she said no to a Spiritual spell, all the members of the Utopia Faction would be annoyed, for the interest was too large to refuse!
“Faction Leader Mo, my sincerity for Holy Virgin Liu is surely evident! I hereby earnestly request you to help us in achieving our marriage!” the young master of the Li Family stepped to the center of the hall and said seriously, as he folded his hands and bowed to the Faction Leader confidently.
The Faction Leader turned to Liu Jingning immediately.
He was not soliciting the opinion of Liu Jingning, but he tried to imply to her that the Utopia Faction was not able to and even couldn’t afford to refuse these betrothal gifts!
Liu Jingning changed her expression instantly. Then, she turned to Xu Que.
Xu Que was sitting on a chair and picking his ears idly with a faint smile on his face.
The next moment, he said with a smile as he shook his head, “Young master of the Li Family, you managed to scrape together a Spiritual spell, and you said it could represent your sincerity, right? Heh-heh-heh, I have to say your sincerity is so damn cheap!”
After saying that, he waved his hand!
Along with a loud ringing sound, several bright lights appeared, suddenly floating in front of Liu Jingning!
“Little sister, you could choose freely among these Spiritual spells! Oh, forget it, just take them all, for they take up too much space and also they are quite heavy! See, I am exhausted and can stand up only when you kiss me, hug me, and raise me up!”
