The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 125.1
Chapter 125: The Auction Begins
The reporters who had written false reports immediately sent Lin Luo apology letters. All of the reporters were journalists from small news agencies, otherwise they wouldn’t have gone out to the Energy Administration to squat.
Did they really think Lin Luo would lie about that kind of thing?
In fact, wasn’t generally the case that they thought Lin Luo had lied. The journalists actually wrote those articles more for the sake of click bait.
The most unlucky person in this case was probably Gu QiuYang. Not only had he been thoroughly embarrassed during the exam, but the questioning of reporters afterwards caused him to be scolded thoroughly by netizens.
When reporters wrote that he was the youngest senior energy engineer, it was not in order to deliberately flattery him, but because they had been waiting at the entrance of the Energy Administration since early in the morning and had interviewed every examinee who entered the hall. Lin Luo was the only one who had climbed over the the wall to get in, so they didn’t know that Lin Luo had also participated in the assessment.
Although the salander of Lin Luo didn’t seem to have anything to do with Gu QiuYang, some netizens still were upset that when the group of reporters praised him as the youngest senior energy engineer, although Gu QiuYang did not respond, he also didn’t go out of his way to clarify things. Looking at the assessment record, it was clear that Lin Luo was the person who tested at the same time and in the same room as him, and the two of them both passed together. He had to have known Lin Luo’s grade. If he had told the journalists upfront about Lin Luo passing the assessment, there would have been no problem later on the StarNet.
However, people quickly stopped paying attention to the follow-up of the whole matter. Everyone’s attention had been attracted to the upcoming special auction held by Yin’s Auction House.
After all, at the special auction more than a dozen 100 milliliter vials of excellent grade element liquid available was to be sold, all with a purity of more than 80%, which could be described as an unprecedented event. The offering price for invitation letters for the auction had shot up, but they were still unable to be bought.
Countless people with abilities and members of elite families rushed to Kipola from various planets throughout the Empire. There was an endless stream of suspended vehicles coming out of star harbor, and almost all of the high-end hotels in Kipola were full.
Kipola, Yin’s Auction House.
Today was the day when the special auction was to be held. All those who received invitation letters from the auction had all waited outside the venue early.
The two brothers Han brothers and He Kun were also squeezed into the crowd. The Han brothers originally wanted to come to Kipola to visit Lin Luo’s new company and follow Lin Luo to learn more stone gambling, but he had been too busy recently. As such, the task of taking them on a tour of the company and Kipola had fallen to He Kun.
Han XinYuan hadn’t wanted to bother him, but when he learned that Lin Luo was going to participate in the senior energy engineer assessment combined with the announcement of the auction, he had a guess in his mind. His speculation was confirmed after Lin Luo passed the examination and was awarded the top energy engineer certification.
Lin Luo’s incredible talent for betting on stones and energy engineering had shocked Han XinYuan. He couldn’t help but start to wonder whether Lin Luo’s ability to bet on stones was so powerful due to some relation with his mental power?
He wanted to find Lin Luo to verify his thoughts, but he also knew that Lin Luo had been really busy as of late, so he planned to wait until the auction was over. He didn’t expect though that Lin Luo would leave auction invitation cards for himself and his brother. The invitation letter was sent to them through He Kun, and a suspension car was also prepared.
Han XinYuan naturally didn’t want to miss such a rare event, so he and Han XinYu followed He Kun over.
Time passed by, and the door of the auction house finally opened half an hour before the auction was about to start.
The staff and security personnel filed out and created a safe walkway, which guided every distinguished guest who held an invitation letter into the venue.
For this event Yin Ye specially renovated the auction hall on the first floor and the lower floor to make it more spacious and give it a more grand and luxurious feel. The auction hall still only had one thousand seats, but each seat was the softest and most comfortable sofa chair available. Additionally, the gap between each seat had been made larger, and there were small coffee tables next to each seat which were carefully set with some drinks and small snacks.
There were still ten VIP rooms on the second floor. The people who were able to get seats in the VIP room this time truly extraordinary.
Soon people began to take their seats according to the seat number written on their invitation letters. The seats of He Kun and the Han brothers were very high in number, and it seemed that they had been specially arranged by Lin Luo for them.
The lights gradually dimmed and Liu Yan, the beautiful and capable auctioneer, once again stepped onto the auction stage.
“Hello everyone, I am Liu Yan and I will be your host for this special auction. Thank you for your support of Yin’s Auction House, and I hope you can buy your favorite lot today. I hereby announce that this auction has officially begun.”
As Liu Yan’s voice fell, a robot came to the auction stage holding a wooden tray. On the tray was a black box placed in the center of a red cloth.
