Peerless Battle Spirit - Chapter 375
Chapter 375 - Offending the Inverse Scale
At that instant, the Demonic-Cored Highness finally came to a realization. No wonder this black saber felt so familiar, it was Tang Qingshan’s saber!
When the black saber appears, nothing will be left alive within five li of it!
“Tang...Tang...Tang Qingshan… you… you are still alive!”
The Demonic-Cored Highness collected his thoughts and wore a pale face. His pupils contracted tremendously to the size of needles, and even his voice began to tremble!
Although he was quite infamous in the lower district back in the day, there was one man he had not stood a chance against!
That man was Tang Qingshan!
He would not have been afraid if the Peak Leaders of the two Sacred Areas were to arrive, but Tang Qingshan’s arrival surely intimidated him. The fear in his heart grew rapidly like a surging tide!
Tang Qingshan, the legend of the lower district!
A presence that he had not dared to offend even at his peak!
Not only was Tang Qingshan still alive, he had arrived at the island in person!
Why was that?
Was it because of Qin Nan?
How extraordinary was this Qin Nan that even Tang Qingshan would show himself for his sake?
“I remember you, weren’t you the one that bought me a drink before, with the name Demonic-Cored something, right?” Tang Qingshan said with an expressionless face, “Since we know each other, there’s no need to waste any further time. Two choices: First, be a servant for the rest of your life. Second, die!”
The Demonic-Cored Highness could feel himself suffocating as if his heart had just received a severe impact.
How could he, a Martial Highness, be someone’s servant for the rest of his life?
As for the second option, he was even more unwilling to die!
However, the Demonic-Cored Highness clearly knew that Tang Qingshan would make sure his words became reality!
Meanwhile, the Demonic-Cored Highness felt his face burning as he recollected Qin Nan’s words. Qin Nan had advised him in a serious manner, but he had paid no respect to his words!
Nonetheless, the Demonic-Cored Highness felt regretful to the extreme. If he had known that Tang Qingshan would be here, there was no way he would have dared to offend Qin Nan.
“Can… Can we… discuss…”
The Demonic-Cored Highness tried to withhold the growing terror in his heart and spoke with a stammer, completely losing his image as a Martial Highness.
Tang Qingshan did not speak, as his eyes glistened slightly.
In the eyes of the Demonic-Cored Highness, the tiny change resulted in endless claps of thunder taking place in his heart.
Tang Qingshan was going to make his move!
At that instant, a rare occurrence suddenly took place.
The space above the island was torn apart as three figures could be seen appearing from it, who turned out to be Peak Leader Duanmu, Peak Leader Zhang, and Peak Leader Luo.
The three immediately sent out their clones after receiving the message from Tang Qingshan, and had finally arrived in time!
The Demonic-Cored Highness could feel his scalp going numb!
He was incredibly familiar with their faces!
Previously in the lower district, these four men and that woman had once stirred a great chaos and caused a series of miracles to happen.
However, since that incident took place, Tang Qingshan had ended up being flanked by the two Sacred Areas, while the other three separated and rarely appeared before the public!
Why did they all appear at the same time!
Could it be… they are here because of Qin Nan?
Peak Leader Duanmu and the others instantly recognized the Demonic-Cored Highness. They had not expected him to be alive still.
Tang Qingshan waste no further time. The moment he said the word, the Heavens and Earth were filled with a boundless murderous intent.
Smelling the scent of death, the Demonic-Cored Highness immediately boosted the strength of the Demonic Spiritual Fire, causing Qin Nan’s soul to turn almost transparent. He then let out a raging roar, “Stop it all at once! If you dare to move, I’ll thoroughly crush his soul! I don’t mind dragging him to hell with me!”
Tang Qingshan’s movement came to a halt.
The eyes of Peak Leader Duanmu and the others turned cold.
“Imperial… Imperial Exterminator… and you three…” The Demonic-Cored Highness gulped down mouthfuls of salivas before he said, while clenching his teeth, “I didn’t know… this young man is tightly related to you guys… It’s my fault this time… Is it possible to spare my life, and I’ll let him go in return?”
“Spare your life?”
Tang Qingshan snapped without showing any emotion, “In your dreams!”
As the words were spoken, Tang Qingshan’s figure flashed across the space and arrived on top of the Demonic-Cored Highness.
The Demonic-Cored Highness could sense a chill being sent down his spine as he roared, “Tang Qingshan, if you kill me, I will drag him into the grave with me——”
While saying this, he once again raised the strength of the Demonic Spiritual Fire and burned Qin Nan’s soul in a ferocious manner.
Peak Leader Duanmu and the others had already accumulated their force in secret. Upon seeing this, they immediately executed teleportation skills to teleport Qin Nan away from the danger.
After all, the Demonic-Cored Highness was yet to recover his full strength. There was no way he could kill Qin Nan in just the blink of an eye before these formidable experts!
The black saber in Tang Qingshan’s hand showed no mercy as it was swung at the Demonic-Cored Highness’ head.
However, at that particular instant!
Qin Nan’s soul—which was being combusted by the Demonic Spiritual Fire—emitted an atavistic force previously concealed deep within his soul, as if it was on the verge of facing destruction.
BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!
Meanwhile, a series of shocking explosions took place above the island all of a sudden. The space was instantly shattered while various forces of wind, thunder, fire, and lightning were spread out in mid-air in a terrifying manner.
...At that instant...
It was the first time that a change could be seen from Tang Qingshan’s expression.
Peak Leader Duanmu and the rest were stunned too. Even the Demonic-Cored Highness’ twisted expression had thoroughly stiffened.
The reason being that at that instant, they could feel a truly intimidating force, which felt that it had surpassed the Martial Highness Realm, surpassed everything!
“You dare to cross the line, death is a must for you!”
An icy ancient-sounding voice exploded in mid-air, together with the silhouette of a giant object. However, the object was encapsulated within an invisible force that prevented its real identity from being exposed!
Tang Qingshan, Peak Leader Duanmu, and the others were astounded.
As for the Demonic-Cored Highness, he was left speechless!
Crossing the line?
What did it mean by crossing the line?
Were they implying that this Qin Nan was the inverse scale?
Before the group could recover from their astonishment, the sky within one hundred li suddenly shattered, as a majestic figure could be seen appearing with a terrifying suppression!
A loud shout could be heard, as if the Heavens and Earth were going to crumble.
The person was Sacred Leader Qinglong!
 TL Note: You guys might have seen the term ‘inverse scale’ in other novels before. If something is referred to one’s inverse scale, it means the person would not allow anyone to touch/harm that thing. It doesn’t necessarily have to be an object or a person, it can also be an unacceptable behavior.
