Todd’s price of seven billion did not deter the competition.
Just then, another tycoon raised his hand, “Seventy-two!”
The Chinese tycoon who had previously called for five and six billion eight hundred million had turned a little pale.
Although he had called for a very generous bid, he was actually not really short of money.
The only limit he could afford was another eight billion, and the reason he had raised his bid twice so quickly was to scare off the other competitors before his own limit was reached.
But if he had been bidding on ordinary commodities, his approach might have worked, but what was being bid on was not a commodity, but a life expectancy!
The terminally ill, by bidding for a quarter of these rejuvenation pills, would have a great chance of being completely cured, not necessarily a few years younger, but enough to extend their lives by a few years, or even a few decades, as long as their terminal illnesses were cured.
After all, some of them are only in their 50s and 60s. After suffering from a terminal illness, even if they are rich, they can only live for a few more years, but if the terminal illness is completely cured, with their financial resources, it is not difficult for them to live until they are 80 or 90 years old.
Therefore, what is on the stage is not a rejuvenation pill at all, but a universal life expectancy for everyone!
Under such circumstances, no matter what psychological tactics you are playing, everyone had one thought in mind, even if they had to pike all their liquid funds, they would still have to bid for the Spring Return Pill!
However, among the crowd, there were a few people with relatively calm expressions who had not participated in the bidding.
These few people, rather than not having the strength to compete for the Spring Return Pill, had been holding back their energy to bid for the last one.
This included Fei Jianzhong, and also Bernard Elnor, who had been allotted two billion in goods by Ye Chen.
Apart from that, there were several other bidders whose declared a*sets were not that high.
They had all selectively taken out only a portion of their a*sets when declaring their a*sets as well as cooperating with the capital inspection, so their declared value was only around US$100 billion, however, these few people were in fact very strong top-tier hidden wealthy people.
One of them, a middle-aged man whose face was somewhat similar to that of middle-aged Zheng Shaoqiu, and even a little more handsome than him, kept his hands clasped in front of his chest, and never raised his hands, nor did he have any intention of doing so, while his eyes were fixed on the Spring Return Pill on the stage, with a somewhat cold expression.
At this moment, an attendant next to him said in a low voice, “Young master, according to this current trend, the last Spring Return Pill will really cost several tens of billions!”
The middle-aged man nodded gently and said without changing his face, “No matter how much the price goes, we must take this Spring Return Pill at all costs!”
And at that moment, the bidding continued.
The price had been called all the way up to eighty-eight billion.
After reaching this price, the voices calling for bids obviously decreased a lot.
Although the people who came were all rich, it was indeed rare to find someone who could come up with US$8.8 billion.
The Chinese brother had already lowered his head deeply and gave up his struggle with teary eyes.
At this time, Todd gritted his teeth and pushed the price up to nine billion.
Immediately afterwards, another man also began to be cautious and added a hundred million dollars to his.
The one who offered nine billion also seemed to be ready for a tug-of-war, so he too added one hundred million dollars to his nine billion and one half.
The two went back and forth, gradually leaving the others behind and also gradually pushing the price to US$9.9 billion.
At this point, both sides in the tussle had the feeling that they were almost ready to die together.
Others at the scene, however, began to mentally calculate the situation at hand.
Some people felt that this second Spring Return Pill might be the most expensive of the four tonight.
This was because having just experienced the chicken blood given to everyone on the spot by the first Spring Return Pill, it would cause everyone to lose their minds and scramble madly.
