Cultivation Online - Chapter 286: Minimal Price
“Don’t worry, Young Master. Even if the Yu Family abandoned you, I will never abandon my patients.” Doctor Wang said in a sincere voice.
“Thank you, Doctor Wang, but just your feelings are enough,” Yuan said to him after hearing his words.
“Young Master, you do not have a choice in this. I had sworn to myself many years ago that I will never leave my patients’ side until they’re healed or take their very last breath trying.” Doctor Wang said in a stern voice.
And he continued, “Even though I won’t get a penny out of the Yu Family by doing this, it has never been about the money. I— your fans— we all want to see your recovery and await the day you can stand on the stage again with an instrument by your side. Of course, now that you are no longer with the Yu Family, you won’t need to play the instrument. However, I still hope for that day.”
“I…” Yuan opened his mouth but realized he was left speechless by Doctor Wang’s words.
“You don’t have to say anything, Young Master. Furthermore, I will still do your monthly check-up at the hospital like always and you won’t have to pay a single penny for it.” Doctor Wang said.
“No, I cannot let you do that, Doctor Wang. I will pay you for the treatments.” Yuan quickly said.
“No offense, Young Master, but where are you going to get the fund? Unless your parents left you a fortune before disowning you, I cannot see how you’ll be able to afford it.”
“I may not have the money now but I will definitely have it soon.”
Doctor Wang raised his eyebrows after hearing Yuan’s confident voice, and he said in a defeated voice, “I understand… but I won’t ask you for it.”
Sometime later, Doctor Wang began his check-up on Yuan.
“Young Master, your muscles have gotten more robust and refined since I last saw you… again…” Doctor Wang said to him in a voice of disbelief afterward, as he has never seen anything like this before despite decades of experience in the field.
What exactly is Yuan’s body made of that allows him to grow such a refined body just from eating nothing but soup every day when even normal, functioning people would require a healthy diet and continuous exercise to maintain it, much less obtain it?
Just like his unknown illness, his physique is a phenomenon of its own.
After putting away his tools, Doctor Wang asked, “Young Master, how has your appetite been lately? Are three bowls of soup enough or do you think we should increase it?”
Doctor Wang also wanted to see if increasing his food intake would help strengthen his body even more.
“Hmm… I think I can handle four— even five bowls of soup now. Meixiu, what do you think? Is that too much for you?” Yuan asked her since she’s the one who will be cooking it.
“It’s okay. I can handle it.” Meixiu said.
“Then let’s try 4 bowls of soup for one week to see if you can handle 5.” Doctor Wang said.
“I understand,” Yuan said.
“Anyways, as always, your body is perfectly healthy, Young Master. But if anything ever happens or you feel even the slightest discomfort, call my phone immediately.”
“I will. Thank you again, Doctor Wang.”
Doctor Wang left the apartment shortly after.
“Yuan, before we play, let me look at the information Sister Rou sent me so I know how to sell the treasure,” Meixiu said to him after locking the door.
“Okay. I will wait for you inside the game. You’re in the backyard of my living quarters, right?”
“Alright. I’ll see you inside the game!” Yuan said to her before going inside the game.
After helping Yuan log into the game, Meixiu went into her room and pulled out a thin laptop that she uses mostly for work.
Once she found Yu Rou’s message in the form of an email, Meixiu began reading about the website and how the place functions.
[The website is called COPlayerAuctions.]
[The account’s information is…]
[In order to sell an item you must…]
[Once you submit your item…]
[After they confirm the item in-game…]
[Make sure you use a VPN when you’re on the website just in case people want to track you down…]
[The bank information is…]
Meixiu read through the message multiple times just in case she missed anything before going to the website COPlayerAuctions.
On the front page, after logging into a VPN and the account Yu Rou provided for her, Meixiu clicked on the large ‘sell’ that was right next to ‘buy’ and ‘trade’ and proceeded to type the information that Yuan had given her right before entering the game.
[Item name: Frozen Jade Zither]
[Type of treasure: Instrument]
[Continent: Eastern Continent]
[Time limit: 7 days]
[Minimal Price: — ]
Meixiu stopped at the minimal price since she was never given a number, and she pondered how much a Divine-grade treasure would be worth before giving up and searching the site for comparison.
Of course, nobody was selling anything even close to Divine-grade with the vast majority of them selling common items and Spirit-grade treasures.
“These people are selling Spirit-grade treasures for thousands of dollars?” Meixiu’s eyes widened with surprise when she saw the players asking for thousands of dollars for a single Spirit-grade treasure.
However, even more shocking was the auction place where there were treasures being sold for tens of thousands of dollars.
After looking around the website for a couple of minutes, the highest grade of treasure she could find was an Earth-grade treasure that was being auctioned for a whopping 500,000 dollars— half a million dollars!
“Earth-grade… According to Yuan, that’s two grades below the Divine-grade, yet it’s already being sold at such an astronomical price.”
After pondering for some time, Meixiu finally decided on a price and typed it into the website.
[Minimal Price: 100,000,000]
One normally wouldn’t dare to put such an astronomical number price tag fearing that nobody would bid, but Meixiu was used to seeing big numbers from working with the Yu Family, hence why she clicked ‘sent for review’ without hesitation.
