Although his granddaughter Phoebe had already established a certain connection with the owner of the Spring Return Pill, now that the Pill had reached this price, Garet no longer had any hope for Phoebe, as he knew that it was absolutely impossible for his granddaughter to obtain a Spring Return Pill for him.
Who would have expected that Huo Yuanzheng would immediately speak without any hesitation, “Twenty-two billion!”
At this moment, Garet’s expression instantly froze, and his body movements also stopped instantly at this moment.
He finally realised why this auction would be so crazy.
It was because, it really was about human lives.
If you win, your life will be extended.
If you lose, even if you are worth hundreds of billions or trillions, you will only have to wait for death after you leave this door.
If your health is not that bad and you can continue to last another year, then perhaps there is still a chance to come back and compete for the Spring Return Pill.
Otherwise, if you are like Garet, you can basically go back and prepare for the aftermath.
Jasmine looked at Garet at this time and opened her mouth to ask, “No. 035, do you wish to continue bidding?”
Garet snapped back to his senses, and immediately looked at Jasmine with a face like death, shaking his head in dismay.
He knew that he had already lost.
Even if he continued to call for the price, when he couldn’t pay it, he would only be left with a basket of bamboo.
Moreover, it was possible that he would be ridiculed by the whole audience at that time.
He knew at this moment that he was already dying, and that if he continued to struggle, it would only be in vain and he would lose his last shred of dignity.
Frustrated, he waved his hand and did not continue to bid.
He then buried his head deeper, forcing himself to accept the reality that his time was up.
On the side, Yuan Zixu was also overwhelmed with emotion. He wanted to comfort Garet, but for a moment he did not know how to do so.
So he could only gently pat Garet’s back and whispered, “Elder Flynn, in your current state of health, you must not get emotional!”
Garet nodded gently, but his heart was still in agony.
Huo Yuanzheng looked at Garet’s back and let out a long sigh, chanting softly, “Uncle Flynn, I’m sorry ……”
Inside the box on the first floor, Phoebe was already in tears, and the makeup on her face, which had been slightly powdered, was already blurred by her tears.
At this moment, she deeply knew how desperate her grandfather’s heart really was.
That kind of despair was even more desperate than falling into a ten-thousand-foot ice cave in the cold winter months when water was dripping into ice.
As for herself, while her heart ached for her grandfather, she could not help but be filled with sorrow.
Because, she also knew that the Spring Return Pill was now so expensive that even the entire Flynn family’s cash reserves were not enough to purchase it, and under such circumstances, what was the little favor that she had given to Charlie wade?
So, what could one do to beg Charlie wade to give Grandpa one, or even half a Spring Return Pill?
Charlie wade earned 300 billion US dollars from one auction, so he could repay all his favors dozens of times over by taking out a random 100 million US dollars ……
And at this time, Charlie wade, who was in the monitoring room, was also a bit shocked.
Two hundred and twenty billion dollars, this is an astounding fortune, but this Huo Yuanzheng, the declared capital is only one hundred billion dollars, who is his real identity?
At this point, Jasmine on the floor began her usual three final enquiries.
After no one raised their bids on the last three occasions, she excitedly dropped the hammer and loudly announced, “Congratulations to No. 099, who has successfully won the only Spring Return Pill in this room at a price of US$220 billion!”
As the words fell, No. 099 Huo Yuanzheng slowly stood up, looked at Jasmine and said in a loud voice, “Miss Jasmine, I know that the owner of the Spring Return Pill must be watching everything that is happening here somewhere at this moment, and I would like to take this opportunity to negotiate a deal with him!”
Faced with Huo Yuanzheng’s unorthodox behaviour, Jasmine was at a loss as to how to reply.
After all, this was a US$220 billion golden master, surely one couldn’t just throw him out because he didn’t follow the discipline, right?
Just as Jasmine hesitated, Huo Yuanzheng looked at one of the surveillance probes and said in a loud voice, “As long as you let me take this Spring Return Pill away, I can pay you US$300 billion!”
