Mana could be felt from the device which restrained the elves’ limbs. It was an artefact that sealed it.

Elves were a powerful race. Their magic and affinity with spirits was much better than humans.

In fact, it was close to impossible to catch an elf with human power, but this happened.

“Elves often overlook the tricks of humans.”

Mostly young elves.

They believe in their own power and think that humans are nothing. Even when they reach adulthood, any talented human being with the right skills can corner them.

And humans understood the habits of elves better than anyone. In particular, those who specialized in races knew more about elves than elves thought.

All the taunts and traps.

The young elves who couldn’t stand the insults and taunts tried to hurt the humans, and fell for the bait.

The captured elves were reduced to slaves and sold off in such houses.

“Hmm.”

Because of the mask, Siegfried’s expression couldn’t be seen, but it could be felt that he wasn’t feeling good about the situation.

He was a slave. He knew better than anyone how a slave would be treated.

Especially an elf slave.

Because elves were the most beautiful race.

“Starting price is 1 million gold.”

1 million gold.

It was a huge amount of money which could help in running an estate for a year.

An exorbitant among to charge as a slave, but if the slave was an elf, it was a different story.

“Shall we try raising it by 5,000?”

The host smiled.

Even the mask couldn’t hide it as it was a clown’s mask.

As soon as he said it, voices rang.

“Wow! 15,000! So much! 25,000! Raise it by 50,000!”

Still, the amount continued to rise.

“4 million, 5 million!’

10 million! 20 million.

The bids rose at a staggering rate.

Everyone struggled to obtain the rarest elf.

Jamie didn’t like this sight.

But this is what happened in such places. So he closed his eyes until the bit was done.

“…”

Until he looked at the man and woman who smelt like forest. It was the woman, whose shoulders were trembling in anger.

The man kept rubbing her shoulders and comforted her.

‘Real elves?’

He was skeptical, but seeing that, it was weird if they weren’t elves.

‘Do they want to save them?’

Seeing such cruel people, it seemed like they had a lot of patience.

‘Grasping reality.’

It is true that the elves are strong, but the security here wasn’t lax either.

Especially the man in black suit who was watching from the second floor railing.

His muscles which seemed like they would explode.

‘Master Class.’

He was trying to hold back his power as much as possible.

It was clear that this man was on the level of Beryl Onyx. Jamie didn’t know how strong the elves here were, but they definitely weren’t Master class.

“Wow! 43 milllion! Anymore?”

The host looked around in excitement.

No one lifted their picket.

The host then said,

“Winning bid!”

Dang dang dang!

“Good!”

The voice of an old man who had won the elves was heard. Hearing the trembling voice, it seemed like an old man.

‘Pig like bastard.’

Jamie chuckled and rolled his eyes seeing the female elf. She too noticed the winning bidder’s voice and seemed enraged.

And as she met Jamie’s eyes, he turned his head away. Did she think that Jamie didn’t know her feelings? Or was he embarrassed?

Jamie continued to look at her.

“Next item.”

The next was a beautiful ornament which was said to be owned by the last princess of a kingdom which existed 4,000 years back.

And it was said that the jewelry didn’t rust even after a long time. After that, several more items began to come up.

But Jamie focused on the next one.

“The next item is said to be harder to find than picking a star in the sky! Do you know the Shadow Sheep?!”

At the word “Shadow Sheep”, the surroundings turned noisy.

Siegfried, who had been watching the auction, went stiff.

“Our turn. I almost got tired of waiting.”

In fact, Siegfried’s neck, which seemed stiff, was being moved.

“How much did grandma give you?”

“She didn’t give me an amount.”

“Huh?”

“A blank note.”

The note standing at the pinnacle of money which any amount of money could be written!

“Wow!”

“Surprised?”

“I can’t even imagine.”

“I guess so. It was the first time for me too.”

Siegfried chuckled and laughed.

If she gave a blank note, Kiriel had to be desperate.

Which was why she said yes to the Soul contract.

“The item is the heart of the Shadow Sheep.”

The man helped open the box, revealing a beautiful sphere which looked like the Milky Way.

A series of brief exclamations followed.

The Shadow sheep was a beast that was no less than a spirit. Naturally, the heart was different from a normal heart.

To be honest, it was closer to a dragon heart than a real heart.

“I think everyone here knows the value of this. So, the starting price is 10 million Gold.”

10 million gold. And that wasn’t the end.

“There is no set price. Please feel free to call any number!”

The host smiled at it.

“3 million.”

“3.5 million!”

‘5 million.’

“6 million.”

“7 million.”

“10 million!”

It jumped tenfold at once.

The bid price was staggering again.

Siegfried mumbled under his mask.

“Hmm. Isn’t this too fierce?”

“You need to participate too.”

“Right. But participating is no fun.”

“What do you mean?”

Jamie sometimes didn’t even know what this man was thinking.

Siegfried said.

“Young lord is still young so you might not know.”

“Know what?”

“How exhilarating it is to set the mood.”

What kind of bullshit is it?

It wouldn’t take long to know what it is.

“40 million 3 thousand!”

“40 million 3 thousand and twenty!”

When it crossed 40, the bid was slowly rising.

That was when Siegfried said.

“100 million!”

Silence. The host, who was dancing around went stiff too. And asked.

“Could you say it again?”

“100 million!”

Siegfried said it again without a second thought.

The price more than doubled.

Those who competed no longer tried.

100 million gold was such an amount.

“We have 100 million. Any more?”

No more.

No one could give 100 million right now.

Jamie looked at Siegfried. Although it was hidden, Jamie knew the man was smiling.

“Isn’t 100 million too much?”

“She told me to use any amount.”

The more he looked, Siegfried seemed crazy.


The heart of the Shadow Sheep, won by Siegfried. So naturally.

“Are you leaving?”

“I want to see more.”

His artifact was here.

And it was said that it would be sold here. If that thing didn’t come out, Jamie decided to turn the man into an undead.

Of course, that person did nothing wrong.

Still, Jamie thought that, and Siegfried said,

“Sure. The ugly side of humans takes quite a while to get used to.”

Made sense.

Jamie had seen the ugliness of these auctions.

This place was nothing short of kid’s play.

‘When will my item come out?’

Perhaps at the end.

So Siegfried too decided to sit with Jamie. A few more items passed.

They were all jewels.

“Huh. Can’t we just go? I am getting tired.”

“What is making you tired?”

“You know how hard it is to bid? My heart almost stopped when I said 100 million.”

Siegfried’s heart had been steady since he came here. When Jamie looked at him coldly, he coughed.

“Of course, as an adult, I have no intention of ignoring a child’s request.”

He turned his gaze to the stage.

A beautiful necklace was sold for 80 million.

It was then.

“This item is presumed to be worth more than the Heart of Shadow Sheep. Bring it!”

Men pulled out a large box with several seals.

Jiing!

Perfect Cell vibrated.

Jamie looked at the Perfect Cell on his wrist. He looked at the box with a nervous expression.

“Open it!”

The host said and the man placed a stone with strong power on the box.

The stacked sealing magics began to open.

“I don’t know who, but a great magician had locked it.”

Siegfried too was admiring it.

And when the box opened, a brilliant five stone of five colors appeared.

Everyone was attracted to it.

The host exclaimed with an excited voice.

“The ultimate stone! All Might!”

Jamie’s eyes widened at the name.

‘How does he know the name?!’

An artifact with absolute defense among the three artifacts created by Diablo Volfir.

However, Diablo sensed defeat from the Gods and spread them all over the world to not let anyone touch them.

Which meant that they were around with no one knowing their names.

That was how it should have been.

No one should know the name.

When Jamie was caught off guard, the bid started.

“The start is 3 million!”

No one said anything.

He too was bewildered.

This was to be expected. No one knew much about the stone other than being a beautiful one.

The host seemed to have been aware of it.

“In this Ultimate Stone.”

Everyone listened.

“A large amount of energy has been condensed which could sustain Saint-Dermain for another 10 years.”

“10 million!”

“20 Million!”

“40 Million!”

“50 million!”

It could power an estate for 10 years, no one would want to lose it.

The people gathered in the auction house were all Lords of estates.

They knew the value of energy.

It was incomparable to the Heart of Shadow Sheep.

“130 million!”

“150 million!”

Bids continued.

Jamie wasn’t shocked anymore. He didn’t know how these people knew the name, but he would find out later.

Now he had to get the stone.

“200 million!”

“200 million and a thousand!”

It crossed 200 million.

It was the moment the absurd amount hit.

There came another one.

“500 million!”

A woman’s voice.

Everything went silent at that.

Even Siegfried was shocked by the 500 million, he ended up turning to see who that woman was.

A woman with pink hair stood tall.

Jamie could see her smile under the mask.

It was Venna.
