The auction for the first Spring Return Pill was successfully concluded, and Song Wanting then began to introduce the second lot of tonight’s auction.
The rhythm of tonight’s auction was to start with one lot of the Spring Return Pill to raise the atmosphere, followed by a few pieces of antiques and cultural items selected by Jiqing Hall to whet everyone’s appetite, and then follow up with a second lot of the Spring Return Pill when everyone’s appetite and patience had been whetted to the limit, and so on.
So, at this point, the auction began with the display of the second item in the collection, an official kiln blue and white dish from the Qianlong period.
At this time, outside the auction hall, Li Tailai was taken to the lounge at the back by the generals of the Ten Thousand Dragons Hall. According to Ye Chen’s request, all the expelled bidders could not leave directly, but had to wait in the lounge until the auction was completely over before they could leave.
Ye Chen had just been in the monitoring room and had watched all of Li Tailai’s performance and could not help but feel some emotion in his heart.
He knew why Li Tailai had lost his mind and was able to understand it to a certain extent.
He then said to Chen Zekai, who was beside him, “Old Chen, keep an eye on the scene first, I’ll go and see Li Tailai.”
Chen Zekai nodded gently and said respectfully, “Yes young master.”
Ye Chen paced up and down to the lounge where Li Tailai was, at this moment, Li Tailai was sitting paralyzed on the sofa, his whole body was in tears, while his heart was also remorseful.
He also realised that his behaviour just now had been extremely immature and irrational.
But the big mistake had been made and there was no chance to undo it now.
He could not wait to see Ye Chen now, to confess to him in person, to pray for his forgiveness again, and preferably to be able to buy some more Spring Return Pills from Ye Chen privately outside the venue.
Even if he really had to spend US$2 billion on a quarter of a pill, he would still be willing to do so.
Just then, the door to the lounge room was suddenly pushed open, and as soon as Li Tailai saw Ye Chen walk in, he stood up from the sofa with a jolt and said apprehensively, “Ye …… Master Ye …… ”
Ye Chen nodded slightly at him, walked up to him and spoke, “Mr. Li, what’s wrong tonight? So reckless, not like your past style.”
Li Tailai let out a long sigh, wiped his tears and said incomparably ashamed, “I’m sorry Master Ye …… I …… I …… ”
Li Tailai stammered for half a day, and finally choked up and said, “It’s because my pattern is too small ……”
Ye Chen smiled faintly and said, “If you hadn’t auctioned that Spring Return Pill back then, you might not have been in such a bad frame of mind.”
“Yes……” Li Tailai nodded repeatedly and said retrospectively, “It was because I had auctioned for that Spring Return Pill that my mind was completely out of balance…… I don’t know what’s wrong with me …… Seeing the price of the Spring Return Pill getting higher and higher, I’m holding more and more fire in this heart ……”
Ye Chen said seriously: “We sometimes have a blind eye because of our own reasons, or outside influences, so at times like this we need to look at things from a different perspective, you are not too old by nature, and you just shot a whole Spring Return Pill not long ago, now your body age is only in your thirties, no illnesses or disasters, compared to those hundreds of people inside, you are in the best physical condition, and, your You are in the best physical condition compared to the hundreds of people in there, and your luck is much better than everyone else in the room, so when you think about it, even if you miss this Spring Return Pill auction, it’s not a big deal, but I didn’t expect that you would be the one with the worst mentality.”
Li Tailai said offhandedly, “What Master Ye said was ……”
