Xiang Nan had always had good feelings for Chen Heng. He admired this iron-boned demon man, especially Chen Heng, who yearned for the civilizations of the human world. He liked the kind of life that came and went freely and happily.
However, he never imagined that Chen Hengjun would be captured and sold as a slave ever since he separated from Xiang Nan at Feiyun Temple.
At this moment, when Xiang Nan saw Chen Hengjun's miserable state, the anger in his heart was about to break through the clouds. He wished he could rush forward right now and kill all those who had tortured Chen Hengjun.
However, his rationality told him that doing so would not save Chen Hengjun, but would even implicate him.
If those people were able to capture Chen Hengjun and openly sell him here, there must be a powerful dark force backing them. If they forcefully robbed him, they would surely attract more calamities.
Xiang Nan took three deep breaths in a row to calm himself down. He quickly walked to the exhibition stand and whispered to Chen Hengjun, who was kneeling with his head down, "Brother Chen."
When Chen Hengjun heard this voice, it was as if he had been struck by lightning. He suddenly raised his head and looked at Xiang Nan, his eyes still filled with confusion.
"It's me, Xiang Bei." Xiang Nan reported the alias Chen Hengjun knew and said, "I've changed my appearance."
Chen Hengjun's eyes flashed with a bright light, but he lowered his voice and said very quickly, "Hurry up and leave me alone. You can't afford to offend this group of people."
Seeing Chen Hengjun's dried lips, Xiang Nan felt as if his heart was being twisted by a knife. He quickly took out a small pot of liquor and handed it over, "Don't talk, drink some liquor and strengthen your spirit. Don't worry, I will definitely save you."
The person in charge of the slave discovered this scene. A strong man with the eighth level of Origin Return walked over quickly with a steel whip in his hand. He pointed the steel whip at Xiang Nan's nose and said, "No food is allowed to be fed to the slave. This is the rule!"
God knows what the buyer will feed the slave. If he feeds the slave some poison, the seller will suffer a huge loss.
Xiang Nan's eyes flashed with an icy coldness as he said in a deep voice, "I'll buy this demon slave."
The sturdy man's expression immediately eased. He smiled and said, "The guest has a good eye. This demon male is …"
"There's no need for nonsense. Just quote directly." Xiang Nan waved his hand and interrupted.
"This slave is worth 120 million gold coins," said the sturdy man with a smile on his face.
"Are you crazy?" Xiang Nan's eyes widened. "120 million gold coins? Why don't you just ask me for a city?"
The strong man said, "I was going to introduce you just now. Why is this slave so valuable? You didn't listen to me."
"That's the price. You either leave money to buy him, or move aside and clear the way for others."
The commotion here immediately attracted the attention of more buyers. Everyone surrounded Chen Heng, and they were also quite interested in Chen Heng.
Xiang Nan knew that the seller was talking big, but he didn't care anymore. If he could solve the problem with money, it wouldn't be a problem for Xiang Nan.
"These three ores are enough." Xiang Nan took out three pieces of Fire Burning Yellow Crystal Stones and threw them on the exhibition stand.
Fire Burning Yellow Crystal Stone was the main ingredient for refining Intermediate Grade Earth Weapons, and its market value was extremely high.
Suddenly, a loud noise came from the crowd.
The sturdy man hurriedly held the three ores in his hands as if he had picked up a treasure. He had already blossomed with joy.
"Can I take someone away now?" Xiang Nan asked in a deep voice.
The burly man chuckled and said, "Sorry, I was wrong just now. This slave is worth 220 million."
"What are you talking about?" Xiang Nan said angrily, "You actually went back on your word? Even if this is an underground trading market, you still have to abide by the rules."
The clan had its own laws and rules, and the dark forces also had their own rules, which could not be broken.
The sturdy man clearly saw that Xiang Nan was a "fledgling" and wanted to knock on Xiang Nan's door. "Can you raise the price temporarily? The buyer can bargain, so the seller can naturally raise the price, right?"
The burly man smiled sinisterly and looked at the crowd.
"That's right, that's the truth."
Unexpectedly, a large number of people in the crowd immediately echoed.
The sturdy man smiled at Xiang Nan and said, "If you don't buy it, someone will buy it."
"Haha, I'll buy it! I want to pay a higher price!"
Someone had already started to heckle. These people definitely wouldn't pay such a high price for a demon male. They just watched the fun without being bothered by the big deal. They were clearly looking for fun.
Xiang Nan gritted his teeth and said, "220 million. It's agreed? Will the price be increased again?"
"Absolutely not! There are so many people watching here. If I add more, who else will buy our things?" Said the sturdy man.
"Alright." Xiang Nan took out three pieces of Fire Burning Yellow Crystal Stones and threw them to the strong man, saying, "Take your things and I'll take them away."
After saying that, Xiang Nan jumped onto the stand and untied Chen Hengjun.
Chen Hengjun looked at Xiang Nan gratefully and said guiltily, "I made Brother Xiang waste money."
At this moment, the burly man suddenly reached out to stop Xiang Nan. Beside the burly man, there was another person whispering to the burly man in a low voice.
"You still want to raise the price?" Xiang Nan's anger could no longer be suppressed. He touched his storage ring with his left hand and was ready to light up his weapon at any time.
However, the sturdy man no longer laughed. Instead, his expression was solemn. He handed the six Fire Burning Yellow Crystals to Xiang Nan and said, "Sorry, we won't sell this slave anymore."
"You said you wouldn't sell it if you didn't want to? You have to give me a reason." Xiang Nan pulled out his huge saber and his Yuan Qi began to surge.
This time, even the buyers couldn't take notice of it. Someone shouted, "Alright, let's just make a fuss. It doesn't make any sense if we don't sell it even after we've agreed on the price."
"Yeah, aren't you smashing your own trademark by doing this?"
The sturdy man's eyes flashed with ruthlessness, but with so many people denouncing him, he couldn't really go against everyone.
The sturdy man gritted his teeth and said, "It's not that I refuse to sell, but I can't!"
"The military has put down their words. They found out that Xiang Nan once interacted with a lion demon man at Feiyun Temple."
"Right now, they are searching for all the Origin Realm lion demons and bringing them back for strict interrogation."
At this point, the sturdy man shouted to the crowd, "Damn him, what a shame! The business he got is so yellow."
Hearing that it was an important person from the military, no one else had anything to say. Although the dark forces were not afraid of the military, they still had to give them some face.
"No! I must have someone today!" The giant saber in Xiang Nan's hand trembled, and he angrily said, "I've given you the money. I have to take the person away!"
The sturdy man's expression changed. He waved his hand and said, "Little bastard, do you want to cause trouble here?"
With a wave of his hand, seventeen or eighteen strong men immediately surrounded him. Each of them had the eighth or ninth level of the Origin Return Realm. They were "high-level" martial artists who were specifically responsible for guarding slaves.
Xiang Nan threw all the Fire Burning Yellow Crystal Stones on the exhibition stand and slashed out a blade light at the strong men.
"Brother Chen, let's go!" He grabbed Chen Hengjun's arm and ran out of the city.
"Stop him!" Three of the dozen or so strong men were killed on the spot by Xiang Nan!
This time, there was a big mess.
