Meanwhile at the Xiangyang Mansion.

At the same time, a new item was being auctioned on the stage. Due to its special location, there was no auctioneer in this auction house. Instead, the auctioneer would personally go up on stage to introduce the item. As for whether it would succeed or not, it all depended on the eloquence of the auctioneer and the value of the item itself.

The new item was a huge axe-shaped spirit tool. On the whole, it did not look much different from the axe in the outside world. However, for some reason, the moment this spirit tool appeared, it attracted the surrounding spiritual energy to gather towards it.

It was very obvious that this spirit tool had its own uniqueness, but Gu Xi was not interested.

Although there were not many people who used this sort of axe-shaped spirit tool, it was a genuine ancient spirit tool after all. Many people present began to bid one after another.

“1,500!” A person was the first to speak loudly.

The auctioneer on the stage shook his head slightly. Clearly, this was not the price he wanted.

One bid after another rang out. The price of this axe was also getting higher and higher.

“2,200 spirit stones? Is it that cheap?”

Gu Xi, who was below the stage, frowned. He had a puzzled look on his face.

Although he did not know the true level of this spirit tool, it was still a genuine ancient spirit tool. Moreover, it looked like it had just appeared in the world. 2,200 spirit stones was indeed too low a price.

If it were in the outside world, the price would at least be more than ten times higher.

“The currency here is not spirit stones, but this.” The white-clothed woman pursed her lips into a smile and waved the jade pendant in her hand.

Gu Xi was stunned at first, but then came to a sudden realization.

The so-called bidding here was not spirit stones, but points in their hands!

“Many contestants may have limited strength, so they are unable to obtain many points. Hence, this trend has been in vogue since a few years ago. The contestants who are not strong enough will not choose to hunt demon beasts after entering this place, but choose to search for the ruins or Secret Realms here. They will bring the spirit treasures they obtained here to be auctioned in exchange for points ranking.”

Lu Liangwei noticed the Dowager Duchess was indeed sweating all over and quickly took the hand fan from Zhu Yu to fan her.

She could not help but reminisce about the modern era’s air conditioners and electric fans.

The Dowager Duchess did object to Lu Liangwei fanning her.

It was not a good thing for a pregnant woman to stay still. Lu Liangwei should move about more to gain the stamina she needed for childbirth.

Both of them walked around the corridor and eventually sat down on a bench in the corridor when they were tired, and they chatted away.

“By the way, Grandmother, Mother sent someone to deliver a letter. She said that the illness suffered by the soldiers is not a plague. They were poisoned. She is currently trying to produce the antidote for it. The soldiers’ illness should be put under control very soon.”

The Dowager Duchess gave a long sigh of relief when she heard this. “It’s good news that this isn’t a plague. It’s lucky that your mother is able to help at the frontier this time. But since it’s not a plague, how did so many soldiers get poisoned? This sounds like it was planned by someone.”

The Dowager Duchess went deep in thought.

“That’s right.” Lu Liangwei nodded as she stared at the clear skies. She had a feeling something was about to happen.

“There’s no need for you to overthink about this as it’s not your responsibility. You should focus on having a smooth birth.” The Dowager Duchess held her hand and reminded her earnestly.

“I know, Grandmother.” Lu Liangwei nodded. She understood her grandmother’s worry.

She lowered her head to look at her huge, bulging belly and frowned.

Two days later, news of the Prince of Xuyang starting a military coup began to surface.

The officials of the imperial court were all shocked.

The situation at the frontier had yet to be resolved, and now news of the Prince of Xuyang’s coup was making the rounds. Bad news was being delivered one after the other.

The officials immediately submitted Palace Memorials, requesting for Long Yang to send over some soldiers to curb the uprising.
