Peerless Battle Spirit - Chapter 398
Chapter 398 - Body Flame Versus Illusionary Ice
“They really are fighting each other! Qin Nan is going to be screwed!”
“No doubt about that;Qin Nan is only at the peak Martial Emperor Realm. There is no way he would stand a chance against a peak Martial Ancestor Realm cultivator! He would be killed in just a single round!”
The cultivators that were previously busy competing for the jade boats stopped their actions on the spot, as their attention was attracted by the battle. After all, it was quite a rare sight for them.
It was as if the punch that Xue Wuheng had lashed out with was magnified, covering the area over ten meters around Qin Nan. Countless snowflakes were fired from the punch, each encapsulating a force capable of freezing the surroundings.
A Martial Ancestor Realm expert could exhort the strength of Martial Skills to their extremes.
Furthermore, Xue Wuheng was a peak Martial Ancestor Realm expert, thus a normal punch from him would contain an incredible power.
“Blazing Sun Golden Armor, let the flames burn!”
Qin Nan uttered a raging roar as his Six-Dragon-Lined Golden Nascent Soul came into action, causing countless flames to appear from his body, forming a blazing armor around his body. A ten-zhang long cloak was materialized behind him, which then danced wildly in mid-air while devouring the incoming snowflakes, resulting in a hissing sound.
Qin Nan showed no sign of being overpowered in the first round.
The cultivators were astonished.
Xue Wuheng’s cultivation is the peak Martial Ancestor Realm, but Qin Nan still managed to endure his attack?
Xue Wuheng’s pupils contracted rapidly, although the punch he had lashed out with was below a tenth of his strength.
“Brilliant! F**king brilliant!”
Ying Xunlong’s eyes were filled with disbelief, as he could not help but clap his hands.
“There’s no way I can let you live!”
Xue Wuheng snapped. He had initially planned to intercept Qin Nan mainly for his brother’s sake. However, after witnessing Qin Nan’s incredible talents, he was more eager to eliminate him, as he could not allow him to further improve his cultivation with the help of the Triple Door!
“Snowy valleys of all directions, boundless snowy mountains, crush down upon him!”
Xue Wuheng’s aura grew rapidly as he flung his palm downward in mid-air.
It was as if the space above Qin Nan had crumbled, as a boundless force could be felt crushing down onto him, resulting in a series of blasting explosions that aimed to shatter his flesh.
Qin Nan’s expression changed slightly.
The difference in cultivation between him and Xue Wuheng was too significant. If he continued to fight him, it was highly possible that he would end up being severely injured.
Although the divine Battle Spirit waged war against the Heavens and Earth, it was foolish to insist on fighting this battle as there existed such a great disparity between their strengths.
“Xue Wuheng, I’ve got no personal conflict with you, but you insist on intercepting me, thus don’t you blame me for showing no mercy! Heavenly Accumulating Strike!”
Qin Nan uttered a roar all of a sudden, as a terrifying force was accumulated on his finger tip, resulting in a shocking aura.
The cultivators in the surroundings were astounded.
Xue Wuheng, in particular, was stupefied as he could sense the force on Qin Nan’s finger tip to be equivalent to the strength of the seventh-layer Martial Ancestor Realm!
“Let everything be incinerated!”
At that instant, Qin Nan did not execute the Heavenly Accumulating Strike, but rapidly commanded the Six-Dragon-Lined Golden Nascent Soul to unleash the Blazing Sun Golden Armor Body Technique to its extreme, emitting scorching flames that melted the icy aura surrounding him.
Following this, with a stomp, the jade boat sprang toward the island at a crazy speed like a horse running wild.
The crowd was stunned. It appeared that Qin Nan had been just bluffing so he could flee.
“Trying to escape?”
Xue Wuheng collected his thoughts as a cold grin appeared on his face. He grasped at the air with his left hand to accumulate immeasureable icy intent, allowing a giant ice-bow to take form.
He held the ice-bow in his hand and pulled the string to its limit while aiming at the target.
Qin Nan could feel an icy aura rise suddenly, causing his scalp to go numb as his heart was filled with a thick sense of danger.
“Six-Dragon-Lined Nascent Soul, left eye of the divine God of Battle, strike him at once!”
Qin Nan uttered a roar as his Six-Dragon-Lined Golden Nascent Soul fired a boundless force while synchronizing with the left eye of the divine God of Battle, depicting a giant illusionary eye above Xue Wuheng. Flickers of lightning could be seen from the eye, which intertwined before striking downward.
“What kind of eye-technique is that?”
Xue Wuheng’s expression changed greatly as he had not expected Qin Nan to have mastered such a powerful eye-technique. He then raised his hand and swung in mid-air, firing a giant icy sword to slash the eye into half.
Meanwhile, Qin Nan turned around and stood on the deck while reaching out his hands facing the back of the boat. Following this, powerful flames were fired from his hands, allowing the boat to push forward at a crazy speed due to the force.
“Qin Nan, despite your little tricks, don’t ever think that you will be able to reach the island safely. Ten thousand illusionary magic, ten million paths of ice, heart-penetrating archery!”
Xue Wuheng uttered a furious roar as green rays of light flickered behind him. He was planning to unleash his Martial Spirit!
The main reason being that as a peak Martial Ancestor Realm expert, he could not even intercept a Martial Emperor Realm presence, causing him to turn enraged.
“Xue Wuheng, aren’t you ashamed of yourself? Are you really planning to use your Martial Spirit?”
At that moment, a disdainful voice appeared out of nowhere, which turned out to be Ying Xunlong.
Without any sign, Ying Xunlong’s figure swiftly dashed forward as he hurled out a punch. It was accompanied by the cries of demons while its force was enough to quaver the mountains and rivers, as if he was a human-figured giant beast!
Xue Wuheng’s face turned pale as he had no choice but to defend against the attack.
However, it allowed Qin Nan to safely arrive on the island.
“Ying Xunlong, I’ll kill you!”
Xue Wuheng went completely mad after seeing this, who continuously executed his killing blows aiming at Ying Xunlong.
“HAHAHA, I have no intention to fight you!”
Ying Xunlong showed no desire of fighting the battle. He immediately executed an outstanding movement technique, allowing him to evade all of the attacks. His figure reappeared on the jade boat with a flicker, which then sailed forward at his command.
Xue Wuheng’s face began to twist. His first reaction was to chase him and beat the crap out of him, but his rationality was telling him that if he were to wage war against Ying Xunlong, they would end up severely injuring one another, allowing the cultivators behind them to steal their jade boats.
“Qin Nan, consider yourself lucky!”
Xue Wuheng clenched his teeth.
After witnessing the battle coming to an end, the surrounding cultivators took a while to collect their thoughts, before they continued to compete for the jade boats.
Qin Nan stood on the island while checking his surroundings.
The island was not huge, it only covered an area with a circumference of one li. At the center of the island stood three giant doors inserted into the ground. Although they were only ten-zhang tall, it felt like they were penetrating the clouds, resulting in a towering look.
In front of the door lay a path made of ancient blue bricks that was a hundred zhang long.
“Starting from the blue bricks, once you step on it, it means you’ve begun the training of the Triple Door!”
A custodian stood on the side of the island and spoke in a calm tone while pointing at the blue bricks five meters away from Qin Nan.
“Thanks, Senior Brother!”
Qin Nan brought his fists together without rushing his time to proceed.
At that instant, Ying Xunlong’s voice appeared, “HAHA, fellow Qin Nan, you have definitely amazed me today. Who could have expected that you are able to stand a chance against Xue Wuheng! No one ever in history could match your talents!”
“That’s only because Xue Wuheng was being careless.” Qin Nan shook his head and spoke in a sincere tone, “Thanks for your help just then. Otherwise, I don’t think that I’d be able to arrive on this island!”
If it weren’t for Ying Xunlong interfering, Qin Nan would have had a hard time surviving Xue Wuheng’s full strength.
“Ain’t a big deal! It was that Xue Wuheng that was trying to abuse his cultivation and bully you!”
Ying Xunlong waved his hand while wearing an indifferent expression.
A cold harrumph appeared beside them, which turned out to be Xue Wuheng arriving at the island. His face instantly turned dark after hearing the conversation between Ying Xunlong and Qin Nan.
