Peerless Battle Spirit - Chapter 383
Chapter 383 - Chen Ying’s Arrival
The crowd was left speechless.
Three kowtows in front of the crowd?
With Qin Nan’s identity, either going back on his promise or ending up giving kowtows would result in a serious damage to his reputation.
This Qin Nan, was he for real now?
“Senior Brother Qin Nan!”
Leng Jianxiong and Lin Xiaoyu were shocked.
However, before they could advise him to reconsider his decision, Zheng Kun burst out laughing once again, “HAHA, Junior Brother Qin Nan, if you have already made up your mind, what else can I say? Fine, I’ll accept it. The loser will give three kowtows in front of the public!”
After saying this, the smug look in Zheng Kun’s eyes grew stronger.
This Qin Nan, who exactly gave him the courage to say such words. He is shaming himself for sure.
There is no doubt that I will win this duel!
Qin Nan spoke without wearing an expression.
In the eyes of the crowd, he might be out of his mind. However, they had no idea that he had acquired the memories of the Demonic-Cored Highness, who was a tenth-grade Yue ranked Pill Alchemist before. Although Qin Nan was still not familiar with Pill Alchemy himself, he was confident that a fourth-grade Xing ranked Pill Alchemist examination would not be a problem for him.
Zheng Kun withheld the disdain in his heart as he led the way at the front.
“Senior Brother Qin Nan…”
Leng Jianxiong and Lin Xiaoyu’s faces turned pale, as they opened their mouths to express their concerns.
In their eyes, Qin Nan had completely lost his mind after becoming enraged due to Zheng Kun’s attitude, hence the reason why he accepted the challenge.
Either way, they could not allow Qin Nan to participate in the duel. Otherwise, the consequences would be unimaginable.
“I have made up my mind. Don’t you two worry about it.”
Qin Nan shook his head facing the two. The firm look on his face instantly shattered their thoughts of stopping him from participating in the duel.
At this stage, since Qin Nan had already come to a decision, there was no way their advice would bring any change to the situation.
Following this, Qin Nan followed behind Zheng Kun to the place of the examination. Meanwhile, the crowd in the Trading Hall finally collected their thoughts and wore excited expressions, as an uproar took place among them.
“We’ll go and take a look!”
“Tsk tsk, Qin Nan has surely lost his mind!”
The disciples who were managing their stalls in the Trading Hall completely lost interest in staying at the hall, and immediately followed behind.
Meanwhile, the news regarding the duel between Qin Nan and Zheng Kun was immediately spread to the public, and everyone's first reaction was, Qin Nan has lost his mind!
Was this a joke—a Martial Artist of Duanmu Peak visiting Caomu Peak to have a Pill Alchemy duel with a soon-to-be fourth-grade Xing ranked Pill Alchemist. There’s no need to predict the result of the duel!
Even if he’s a peerless genius, it doesn’t mean he would stand a chance in a Pill Alchemy duel!
Following this, countless people headed straight to the place of the examination. They were interested to see if Qin Nan would actually kneel down on his knees and give kowtows after losing the duel.
There existed various-sized venues for examinations at Caomu Peak.
These venues were prepared with the same cauldrons, herbs, etc. to ensure that the examination would be carried out in a fair manner for the disciples.
At that instant, dozens of cultivators had already made their way to the venue where the fourth-grade Xing ranked Pill Alchemist examination would be held, including young men in their twenties and old men in their eighties. Everyone wore serious looks on their faces, as if they were about to experience a battle in which their lives were at stake.
In the eyes of Pill Alchemists, each examination was extremely important to them, as it greatly influenced their future!
All of a sudden, Zheng Kun’s figure could be seen entering the venue.
His arrival caused many disciples in the venue to wear smiles on their faces.
“Senior Brother Zheng, you’re here?”
“Senior Brother Zheng, do take good care of me after passing the examination!”
Every single participant was fawning over him, as they were not too confident in passing the fourth-grade Xing ranked Pill Alchemist examination. On the other hand, there was no doubt that Zheng Kun would pass it with flying colors.
Zheng Kun waved his hand and pointed behind him, before he smilingly said, “Fellow brothers, I’m not the protagonist today. I believe all of you would have heard of Junior Brother Qin Nan. He is here today at our Caomu Peak and due to a slight conflict between us, he will be having a Pill Alchemy duel with me. The loser will give three kowtows in front of the crowd!”
Everyone was absolutely shocked.
There was no doubt that they knew who Qin Nan was. The famous peerless genius, but wasn’t he talented in Martial Arts, why would he have a Pill Alchemy duel with Senior Brother Zheng Kun?
Qin Nan entered the venue with a calm face, and then sat down before a vacant cauldron.
At that instant, Leng Jianxiong, Lin Xiaoyu, and countless cultivators who had heard the news started to gather at the examination venue, causing the place to be completely crowded.
“Shit, it’s really Qin Nan!”
“Is he really having a Pill Alchemy duel?”
The disciples wore astonished looks after arriving at the scene.
Leng Jianxiong and Lin Xiaoyu could feel their hearts hanging in their throats, as they subconsciously clenched their fists.
At that instant, a loud roar could be heard all of a sudden, “What’s going on here? What the hell is going on right now? This is the venue for the fourth-grade Xing ranked Pill Alchemist examination. Why are these many people surrounding here?”
An old man wearing a black robe could be seen arriving on the steps, whose face turned dull after seeing the crowd.
Many of the disciples were startled. They clearly knew who this old man was. His name was Tie Mu, who was a fifth-grade Xing ranked Pill Alchemist with a strict manner. Many disciples had been seriously punished by him before.
“Custodian Tie Mu, this is what happened…” Zheng Kun’s eyes flickered as he explained the process of the incident to him.
“What? A Pill Alchemy duel? Qin Nan?”
Tie Mu’s face was filled with great shock after hearing the words, as he glanced at Qin Nan.
Qin Nan rose from the ground and brought his fists together, “Senior, although I’m not a disciple of Caomu Peak, I’m quite passionate about Pill Alchemy. I hope Senior will allow me to take part in this exa——”
Before he could finish, Tie Mu’s expression changed greatly as he uttered a roar, “Bullshit! Absolutely bullshit! Qin Nan, leave the place at once. The disciples from other peaks are not allowed to take part in the examination!”
The crowd was left in awe, as they did not expect Tie Mu to become enraged.
As a matter of fact, Tie Mu had been present at the scene when the two Sacred Areas fought each other to claim Qin Nan’s possession. He was quite impressed by Qin Nan’s talents and personality. He had even beat the crap out of a few custodians of the Feiyang Sacred Area in the grand brawl.
Therefore, he could not watch Qin Nan fail in the examination, resulting in a severe damage to his reputation!
Zheng Kun was startled. He had purposely told Tie Mu about the incident so he would tremendously mock Qin Nan. However, beyond his expectations, Tie Mu decided to expel Qin Nan from the examination with brute force.
However, at that instant, a pleasant voice could be heard.
“Custodian Tie Mu, what is the problem that caused you to be so furious?”
Following the voice, an attractive figure slowly appeared from the crowd.
Her entry served as a great explosion in the hearts of the crowd.
“Gasp! Even Chen Ying is here!”
“Is she here to rank up to become a fourth-grade Xing ranked Pill Alchemist?”
“F**k, as expected of the sister of Senior Brother Chen, such an outstanding talent. She managed to achieve this stage even though she only started learning Pill Alchemy two years ago!”
Zheng Kun’s face was twisted after seeing the new person arriving.
