It was even possible that the elites from the other major cities in the Divine Wood Federation would come to attend the Prosperous Chamber of Commerces auction because of the Bronze/Epic Item-Storing Walnuts.
With this pair of Item-Storing Walnuts, the Prosperous Chamber of Commerce would not have to be afraid of succumbing to the collusion between the Deep Freeze Chamber of Commerce and Profit Source Chamber of Commerce.
Most importantly, Li Wan noticed that the pair of Item-Storing Walnuts in Lin Yuans hand had clearly not been played with before.
This pushed their price up even higher.
Some of the obscenely wealthy elites could not endure owning Item-Storing Walnuts that had already been played with.
Li Wan glanced around and saw a few customers eyeing their group.
She hurriedly gestured to Lin Yuan and said, “Young Master Lin, why dont you come and have a drink in our guest lounge We have not afforded you the treatment you deserve.”
Lin Yuan knew that Li Wan understood what he was getting at.
He tossed the Item-Storing Walnuts around as he said, “Since you think of me as a valued guest, I would like to send my best wishes that the Prosperous Chamber of Commerces auction will be a big success.”
Li Wan was now sure that Lin Yuan intended on trading the Bronze/Epic Item-Storing Walnuts with the Prosperous Chamber of Commerce.
However, the weather-changing plant-type feys value was far from that of the Bronze/Epic Item-Storing Walnuts.
Li Wan shot a look at Elder Duan as she said, “Go and fetch the list of items for the auction so Young Master Lin can see if anything catches his fancy.”
The elderly man beamed and replied, “Rest assured, Young Lady.
I will fetch the list of items now and place them in the guest lounge.”
The elderly man had seen how Li Wan had tired herself out over trying to ensure that the auction would be a success.
Yet, he was unable to help in any way.
The Li family was one of the Great Lush Federations secret elite families, but they were no longer as powerful as they used to be because of that incident.
They could no longer stand up to the secret elite families that were behind the Deep Freeze Chamber of Commerce and the Profit Source Chamber of Commerce.
The Prosperous Chamber of Commerce had 47 branches in total in the Great Lush Federation and Divine Wood Federation.
However, the Deep Freeze Chamber of Commerce and Profit Source Chamber of Commerce had over 100 branches each.
As such, the Prosperous Chamber of Commerces cut of the profits was eaten into by the Deep Freeze Chamber of Commerce and Profit Source Chamber of Commerce.
The Prosperous Chamber of Commerces branch in Oak City was amongst the top five chambers of commerce in Oak City.
Hence, this branch had to be kept afloat no matter what.
Otherwise, the merchant groups under the Prosperous Chamber of Commerce that operated out of Divine Wood Federation and Iron Wood Federation would lose their only stopover.
Now, hope had appeared.
Li Wan had decided to open the guest lounge to Lin Yuan because he was indeed an important guest, and her sincerity would be more apparent if their discussion was conducted there.
But another reason was that the various chambers of commerce often dispatched spies, and Li Wan could not say for sure that none of them were currently in the Prosperous Chamber of Commerce.
If the conversation between her and Lin Yuan was leaked, the Deep Freeze Chamber of Commerce and Profit Source Chamber of Commerce would definitely jump into action.
The Prosperous Chamber of Commerce was in a shaky situation and solely depended on Li Wan.
She could not allow anything to affect the auction that would decide the fate of the Prosperous Chamber of Commerce.
On the way to the guest lounge, Lin Yuan could clearly feel the young girls anxiousness rising.
He reached out and patted her head as he said, “I have the Reducing Heat Grass.
You dont have to go out to buy it.
Once Im done trading for what I need, Ill help you save that person.”
Lin Yuan handed the Reducing Heat Grass to the young girl.
The young girl hurriedly clutched the Reducing Heat Grass close to her body as she looked at Lin Yuan with gratitude brimming in her eyes and said, “Thank you, Big Brother.”
Li Wans eyes flashed when she noticed this.
She had come out to personally meet Lin Yuan because she had received a report from one of the blue guards.
Hence, she knew that Lin Yuan and the young girl had bumped into each other at the entrance of the Prosperous Chamber of Commerce.
Li Wan could tell from their interaction that Lin Yuan was extremely kind.
There was no other reason he would help this clearly impoverished young girl.
Thus, she started looking at him in a different light.
She felt that his behavior did not match that of a disciple of a secret elite family.
However, it could not be denied that Lin Yuan was shining brightly.
Once they arrived at the guest room, Li Wan picked up a pot from a shelf and a glass cup as she said, “This is Elephant Bone Wine made from the bones of giant elephants that have been fermenting for decades.
It is one of my familys secrets.
Please have a taste.”
She poured the wine into a cup.
Just as she was about to pour a second cup, Lin Yuan stopped her and said, “Only one of us drinks alcohol.
You have a coughing problem, so you shouldnt drink.”
Lin Yuan handed the cup of wine to Ji Feng.
Ji Feng had the habit of sipping wine during meals.
Now that he was faced with wine made by one of the Great Lush Federations secret elite families, the alcoholic in him reared its head.
He took the cup from Lin Yuan and took a sip before he said, “The Elephant Bone Wine is made from Diamond elephant bones, elephant blood, and the Elephant Grave Vine.
The metallic taste of the elephant blood has been overpowered by the taste of the alcohol to produce a strong fragrance.
When Lin Yuan said that he did not drink alcohol, she felt that he was like a winemaker.
Winemakers were always clear-headed and looked out for themselves.
But Lin Yuans second line had come from a place of concern, and Li Wan knew that Lin Yuan was a thoughtful person.
This made Li Wan curious about which secret elite family Lin Yuan was from.
Could he be the only direct descendant of his family and did not have to compete with anyone
People who were used to competition would not be able to have such kind and thoughtful personalities.
Before Li Wans train of thought could go any further, she was stunned by what Ji Feng said.
Although Ji Feng had not stated the Elephant Bone Wines entire recipe, what he said had been exactly on the nail.
It was as though he had personally participated in the brewing process.
This meant that this man drank good-quality alcohol often.
Otherwise, he would have developed such an elevated palate.
