Chapter 128: The Frog In The Well

9 am.

Bangde Auction House.

As one of the top ten auction houses globally, its position and scale were beyond all doubt.

The auction today was an important and large-scale event.
Naturally, many people came.
Most of them came from impressive backgrounds.

Usually, during such large-scale auctions, there would always be unexpected items that were rare and precious.
They would cause the noble bidders to go after them like a flock of ducks.

Even though some people couldn’t afford the items, they would find all means to get an invitation.
They were willing to break their heads in order to witness this grand occasion.

This was something everyone knew.
At the same time, this was what Li Liangda was telling his son, Li Rongcheng.

“Today, the main purpose is to let you see the world.
You will meet many martial warriors later.
That little brat from the Wang family might have become the top scholar of the martial arts exam as a martial warrior, but compared to the people at the auction today, he’s nothing.
He’s just a young lad.
If he wants to become a real powerful person, he still has a long way to go.
No one knows if his path will break someday either.”

Li Liangda’s expression was ruthless.
But, when he looked at Li Rongcheng, a hint of love appeared in his gaze.

“Hence, a moment of defeat doesn’t mean anything.
No one knows whether you or Wang Teng will be more powerful in the future.
Take your martial arts exam next year properly.
Our Li family will support you with everything.
I don’t believe that you can’t be better than Wang Teng.”

“Dad, I understand.” Li Rongcheng nodded like a pecking hen.
He clenched his fist tightly, and hope was rekindled in his eyes once again.

Wang Teng, just wait.
Next year, I will definitely get into a top university.
I have the support of the entire Li family.
I’ll catch up with you soon.
At that time, I will make sure you die a terrible death…

Just as he was imagining how he would enter a top university and throw Wang Teng far behind him after he got stronger…

A familiar back view appeared in his vision.
The hideous smile on Li Rongcheng’s face abruptly froze.

“Wang Teng!

“Dad, it’s that little brat!”

Li Liangda looked in the direction Li Rongcheng was pointing at and squinted.

When Wang Teng heard the noise, he turned around.

“Li Rongcheng!”

One can’t avoid one’s enemy!

This thought appeared in both their minds almost simultaneously.

Wang Teng didn’t care about them, though.
He continued walking towards the main entrance.

They were holding a grand event today, so security guards were validating the identities of the guests at the entrance.
People without invitations weren’t allowed to enter.

Wang Teng took out his invitation card and walked in first.

How did Wang Teng get an invitation card? Did the Wang family get him one? Li Liangda frowned and thought to himself silently.

“Dad, didn’t you say that the invitation is very hard to get? How did he get it?” Li Rongcheng felt uncomfortable when he saw Wang Teng walking in.
He turned around and questioned Li Liangda.

“Why do you make a fuss out of everything? Why are you feeling unhappy just because of an invitation card? Can you have a broader field of vision?” Li Liangda scolded him.

“I, I know my mistake.
It’s just that every time I see him, I lose my emotions.” Li Rongcheng felt aggrieved.

“You need to change yourself.
If you continue to remain so narrow-minded, your future might be limited.” Li Liangda expected better from his son.
However, he still explained patiently, “As for the invitation, it’s hard to get one, but with the Wang family’s ability, they could get their hands on it if they make some effort.”

Li Liangda thought that Wang Teng’s invitation came from the Wang family.
He never expected Wang Teng to get the invitation himself.

He lectured Li Rongcheng for his narrow-mindedness, but he didn’t know that his own vision was limited too.

While he was laughing at other people for being a frog in the well, he should raise his head and look up at the sky above him.
Was it the real sky?

Li Liangda brought Li Rongcheng into the main building of the Bangde Auction House.

Both of them were wearing formal clothes.
They were in suits and leather shoes, looking like they were here for an official banquet.

“The auction today will be held in the ‘Sky’ auction hall on the eighth floor.
Let’s go there directly,” Li Liangda looked at the invitation card in his hand and said.

The two of them came in front of the lift.
The lift door was about to close.

“Wait!” Li Rongcheng hurriedly ran over and pressed the lift button.
He stopped the doors of the lift that was about to close.

Li Liangda glared at Li Rongcheng with a reproachful gaze.
Then, he said to the people in the lift, “My son was reckless.
I’m really sorry about that.”

There were around five people inside, and they all gave off powerful auras.
When they glanced at Li Liangda and his son, a hint of contempt flashed past their eyes.

Li Liangda was a smart person.
Thus, he noticed the people’s reactions and felt humiliated in his heart.
He even felt hatred.
However, he didn’t dare to reveal anything.

“Misters and miss, we will wait for the next lift.” He smiled awkwardly.

After the lift door closed, Li Rongcheng’s expression turned ugly.
He felt disgraceful as he asked, “Dad, why do we have to lower our voices and status in front of them?”

“Idiot, why can’t you see who those people are? Look at their attires and temperaments.
They are most likely martial warriors.
How can you offend those people? Do you feel that our Li family is living too happily?” Li Liangda was suddenly a little disappointed by his son.
He glanced at him and snorted.

Li Rongcheng felt a strong sense of unwillingness seeping out of his heart.

Martial warriors!

Martial warriors again!

If he passed the martial arts exam and entered a top university, he would be able to become a martial warrior soon.
He wouldn’t need to bend down in front of these people and speak humbly to them anymore.

It was all because of Wang Teng.

He was the one who harmed him.
If it wasn’t for him, he wouldn’t have failed the martial arts exam.
He wouldn’t be in this state today either.

At this moment, the hatred Li Rongcheng had towards Wang Teng got deeper and stronger.

Li Liangda seemed to have seen through his thoughts.
He said, “I know that you hate Wang Teng and want to take revenge.
But, you need to become stronger faster.”

Footsteps were heard behind him.
He stopped speaking.

“Huh? Mr.
Li, you came to participate in this auction too?” A slightly astounded voice was heard.

Xie!” Li Liangda turned his head and found someone familiar.
He was slightly shocked too.
He smiled and said, “Yes, I brought my son out to let him experience the world.
Xie, you must have laid your eyes on a certain auction product, so you came to bid for it, right?”

Xie Kun felt a vague sense of superiority when he noticed Li Liangda flattering him.
He laughed and replied, “That’s right.
I wanted to forge a weapon and saw a suitable item at the auction.
Hence, I came to take a look.”

Xie Kun was delighted.
Before he became a martial warrior, he could only look up to and admire these wealthy people.
However, ever since he became a martial warrior, those wealthy people didn’t dare to offend him anymore.
Sometimes, when they needed to ask him for help, they would fawn upon and flatter him in every way they could.
They also needed to spend a considerable sum of money if they wanted his help.

Li was an example.
In the past, to get rid of some trouble, he promised to give him ten million and even begged him before he finally agreed to help.

You might be wealthy, but you needed to bow down in front of a powerful and capable martial warrior.

Of course, if you were really wealthy, you would be able to invite a stronger martial warrior.
You wouldn’t need to treat low-rank martial warriors like this.

But, in the end, they still had to rely on martial warriors.

Martial warriors were slowly becoming the mainstream in this era.
