Epilogue, beginning not end (5)
around that time.
Another event that shook the world happened.
It was Roman Dmitry who put his sword at auction.
There was no particular reason.
Having received the sword as a gift from his father, Romero Dmitry, Roman Dmitry expressed his intention to market the sword he had been using.
The decisive battle with the Absolute ended in an overwhelming victory. In order to make a new sword that will melt the realization of the past, I decided that now was the right time to part with the existing sword.
People’s attention was focused.
Roman Dmitry’s sword.
It wasn’t an ordinary thing.
With the quality alone, they crushed all the famous swords, and even had the symbolism of dealing with the absolute, it was impossible to even imagine the value of the future.
People with some money couldn’t help but pay attention. Even if you don’t know much about swords, this auction was definitely worth participating in.
on the day of the auction.
People flocked to Las Vegas.
As the two worlds merged, the United States was the first to undertake several initiatives to embrace Dmitry’s world. Among them, the most popular area was the auction.
Thousands of people flocked to each other every day, waving bundles of banknotes to win the bid, offering both valuable items without distinction.
inside the auction house.
A man looked around.
‘Damn Ahmed. You plan to disturb me again this time.’
It was the royal dragon.
When Roman Dmitry’s sword was on the market, he felt a shiver rising from his toes.
It had to be won.
Kim Pan-seok loses Lee In-ja’s place, and he can’t even give a business card to Kevin that he dares to use the Celestial Swordsmanship.
He had to put forward his only weapon, the strength of being the leader of China.
He issued a national emergency order and collected all the spare funds, and participated in this auction with an exciting momentum.
The problem was Ahmed.
A difficult enemy to deal with in a money-related competition.
As the king of Saudi Arabia, he secured enormous wealth, so he did not lose against Ahmed in the last auction. Moreover, rumor has it that on that day, Ahmed became Valentino’s successor.
If the great wealth was added to the desire for collectibles, it was clear that there would be no settlement with billions of dollars.
‘It won’t be easy this time. Even if there is a way to uproot each other’s wealth, I won’t be the first to back down. I risked my life and death to obtain the sword of the Emperor Roman Dmitry, the Heavenly Demon.’
took a breath
The tension rose.
In addition to Ahmed, familiar faces were seen, but they were not greatly checked.
Fortunately, there was one thing.
‘The Duke of Valentino is nowhere to be seen.’
A collector of greed.
As Ahmed was granted his lore, he learned that monsters existed in Dmitry’s world.
In fact, Wang Yu-ryong held Valentino in check rather than Ahmed.
His splendid reputation (?) of winning the bid for Dmitry’s sword by stealing his fortune, he could not afford with any amount of bleeding.
I have learned enough to wear impressions in advance.
No matter how much he looked, he couldn’t see him, so the rumors that Valentino’s health had deteriorated and that he had stepped down from the front line seemed to be true.
It was truly luck. Excluding Valentino’s existence, it was clear that this auction would be a battle between him and Ahmed.
That was then.
“Let’s start the auction now!”
The auction curtain has risen.
* * *
said the auction house master.
“I will not go into detail about the items at this auction. His Majesty Roman Dmitry cut off the head of the Absolute with this sword, and gave it a new name, Light, to bless the bright future ahead. As I have dealt with numerous auction items, I will assure you. Apart from the simple symbolism of this sword, Gwangmyeong has the most overwhelming quality than any other famous sword.”
Currency used for auctions.
It was the won of the Korean Empire.
Dmitry, who uses gold coins, was also gradually embracing the use of paper money during the integration process.
the master shouted.
“Now, the starting price of the auction is 10 billion won. If you want to win the bid, please raise the sign!”
It was a huge amount.
Although there is no case where the starting price is set so high even in the auction house, signals were sent from all directions as soon as the speech was finished.
step by step.
They were all signs of asking for 10 billion won.
As if it was a natural reaction, the Master quickly read the signal and proceeded with the auction.
“We will receive quotes in units of 10 billion, 20 billion, 30 billion, 40 billion, 50 billion, and from now on, 100 billion won. 100 billion, 200 billion, 300 billion… … Ah, now number 32 has bid 1 trillion won! Within 10 seconds of starting the auction, a whopping 1 trillion won was set!”
It was a heinous amount.
No matter how wealthy they were, 1 trillion won was not an area that could be used carelessly.
Number 32 was Wang Wei Dragon.
He placed bets to shake off all the gossips, and to definitely take the lead.
‘Come on, let’s have a fight with the tricksters from now on.’
The auction did not stop.
Even with the amount of 1 trillion, there was a person who called for a quote.
“No. 19 bid for 2 groups! And right away, number 32 is the 10th, ah, what the hell is this? No. 19 bids 20 trillion, showing a strong will to win the bid for Gwangmyeong!”
It was as expected.
he was the problem
Wearing number 19, he persistently followed up, and on the contrary, expressed his strong will for winning the bid.
‘Damn you bastard.’
Wang Wei-ryong sharpened his teeth.
It has been a war of stars from the moment the 20 trillion mark is exceeded, but I did not attend this auction to retreat like this.
From the very beginning, I knew that the battle would be decided by a group fight. Ahmed was wealthy as the king of Saudi Arabia, but China’s leader, Wang Weilong, was not pushed aside.
In particular, China has acquired considerable wealth and prestige, following the Korean Empire faster than other countries.
Wang Weilong gathered all his power.
From his position, the leader of China poured all his money into this auction.
At that, the Master shouted as if fainting.
“Aaaaaaaaah, 100 trillion. A whopping 100 pieces came out. This is the first time in the history of an auction such a ridiculous amount!”
Ahmed shook his head.
He, too, had to be embarrassed.
No matter how much the bloody competition was fought, he thought it would end in tens of trillions of dollars, but Wang Yuryong bid an absurd amount of 100 trillion to end the country at the end of the auction.
From then on, Ahmed was in trouble. It wasn’t that he didn’t have enough money.
However, doubts soared as to whether it was possible to invest a whopping 100 trillion won in this auction, saying that only one sword would be successful.
on that look.
Wang Weilong swallowed a laugh.
Worrying at the auction house meant defeat.
At the moment of self-distrust, it was impossible to bet an astronomical amount.
“Is there anyone who can give you more? So, let’s count 5 seconds from now. If no one is talking about a higher amount in 5 seconds… … .”
That was then.
The atmosphere was cold.
Everyone confirmed the owner of the voice with astonished faces.
However, where his gaze stayed, a person he had never seen in his life lifted a sign with a calm face.
* * *
a few days ago.
The Valentino family has an emergency.
The Duke of Valentino, who had grown old, gathered his children together and said with a sad face.
“… … As you know, this father’s life is short. At most, after a year of work, it will return to nature’s bosom. In the meantime, I am well aware of the complaints you have with me. I gave you some of your fortune to give you a foundation on your own, but you didn’t pass the Valentino top to anyone else.”
No, the continent’s best rejection.
Valentino had amassed a truly astronomical fortune, but even before his death, he did not decide who to inherit.
The children waited patiently.
Knowing that he would not be able to find the main shrine if he was greedy for nothing, he has been silently defending his position for the past 30 years.
And now. The Duke of Valentino was the first to mention inheritance.
They knew the meaning.
‘We are all wealthy as our father’s children, but regardless of how hard we’ve worked, the only one who inherited his father’s fortune will become a tycoon in the future.’
‘I must have inherited it.’
Everyone looked at them with eagerness.
As children who resembled their father, they had the ambition to follow their father and become the number one denial in the continent.
Valentino really liked it.
He always wanted his children to lead a greedy life.
said the Duke of Valentino.
“Now I want to decide who will inherit the Valentino top. There is only one condition.”
Someone swallowed dry saliva.
The sight of men and women gathered around an elderly man lying in a hospital bed was truly a sight to behold.
A single word from Valentino was more important than the hundreds of trillions of money being bid on the auction house.
“I will pass on all of me to the child who wins the bid for the sword of His Majesty Roman Dmitry.”
The children’s eyes turned sharp.
Wong Wei-ryong and Ahmed did not know the truth.
Valentino’s participation in the war.
The fact that this auction was not a fight between the two, but Valentino’s family fight.
* * *
Article 200 was just the beginning.
Valentino’s children, who had been silently watching for the time being, hurriedly slammed their bids without retreating a bit.
“I am 350 trillion!”
Hearing the sign, he raised his voice.
As a master, he was sweating with a bewildered face.
I have never experienced an auction that bids 50 trillion won at a time, or even an auction that wins over 100 trillion won in the first place.
They were the wealthiest people each recognized on the continent.
Having accumulated enormous wealth, they staked their lives on this auction, and gathered all the financial resources of the people they knew.
It was financial power using leverage, not pure wealth.
Even those who borrowed a huge amount of money had no choice but to hesitate, but one premise solved all the problems.
“what’s the problem? If we inherit the Valentino top, everything will be resolved.”
Empowering Valentino’s children.
It was truly a battle of powers, and each of them shouted a quote with their wealth to steam up any country.
at its center.
Wang Weilong lost his mind.
I tried to declare the asking price at around 300 trillion won, but in just a few seconds, the price soared to 500 trillion won, only my hands trembled and the mark was not lifted.
Anyway, this wasn’t it. Against those who rushed to think that this was the end, he was not allowed any chance of winning.
“Finally, the winning bid has been decided! His Majesty Roman Dmitry’s famous sword is an astronomical sum of 950 trillion, and Charnel Valentino, the eldest son of the Valentino family, wins the bid!”
A man who wakes up.
Seeing him leaping with joy, Wang Wei-ryong lowered his head.
The day I met Heaven.
He thought he was well-born for his time.
The Wang family, who had been waiting for Heaven, was rewarded for their existence by meeting Roman Dmitry.
“Life is really like X.”
Losing this person’s place
The Celestial Swordsmanship can’t even show a business card.
Even Gwangmyeong was robbed in front of his eyes.
Again, happiness is relative.
Although it is Wang Weilong, the emperor of China and one of the most powerful people, he really thought this life was unfortunate.
