Peerless Battle Spirit - Chapter 399
Chapter 399 - Three Hundred Steps
At that instant, the phase of competing for the boats was over, as the custodians who were ranked on the custodians’ ranking continuously arrived at the island.
Instead of rushing toward the Triple Door as usual, they all stared at Qin Nan, Xue Wuheng, and Ying Xunlong.
Qin Nan gazed at him with a cold look.
If Xue Wuheng was not being careless, if Ying Xunlong did not lend him a hand, he would most likely not have been able to arrive safely at the island, causing him to not only lose over a thousand Contribution Points, but the precious chance of cultivating at the Triple Door too.
“Qin Nan, there is no point staring at me like that.” Xue Wuheng said in an icy tone, “Aren’t you a peerless genius? Aren’t you a Prospective Saint? Do you dare to have a bet with me!”
The crowd was startled.
Qin Nan took a deep breath, before replying slowly, “What bet?”
“It’s simple, if you are able to achieve over three hundred steps in this Triple Door, you win! I’ll give you fifty Primary Stones! If you lose, you don’t need to give me Primary Stones, just let me slap you in the face, how’s that?” Xue Wuheng said.
Qin Nan’s eyes immediately flickered.
Fifty Primary Stones!
That’s equivalent to five hundred thousand Contribution Points, fifty Yue-ranked pills!
However, the surrounding crowd was dumbfounded after hearing this.
“What? Three hundred steps?”
“Is this Xue Wuheng trying to bully him? In the history of our Qinglong Sacred Area, those below the Martial Dominator Realm only achieved two hundred and sixty steps at most by using lots of artifacts! Three hundred steps? That’s ridiculous!”
“I agree, only an idiot would agree to such a bet!”
The cultivators could not help but shake their heads while feeling discontented
The main reason being that the condition that Xue Wuheng suggested was too ridiculous.
Ying Xunlong wore a surprised look as he let out a smirk, “Hehe, Xue Wuheng, you’ve got balls. Three hundred steps? Why don’t you try it yourself! If you are able to reach three hundred steps, let alone fifty Primary Stones, I’ll f**king bet two hundred Primary Stones with you!”
“There’s no way I can achieve that.”
Xue Wuheng shook his head without showing any expression on his face, “But Qin Nan is different. He is a peerless genius with an eighth-grade Xuan ranked Martial Spirit, one that both Sacred Leaders fought each other for. Therefore, it’s reasonable that my demand is higher than usual!”
Ying Xunlong almost burst out laughing after hearing this, “Xue Wuheng, cult your bullshit. One’s Martial Spirit’s rank or cultivation doesn’t even matter in the Triple Door. It’s all about your determination!”
The crowd nodded their heads.
This Xue Wuheng was going too far with his ridiculous act.
“I don’t want to waste my time talking to you.” Xue Wuheng directly ignored Ying Xunlong as he gazed at Qin Nan with a disdainful look as he spoke, “Qin Nan, aren’t you referred to as a peerless genius? Are you implying that your Martial Spirit is the only factor contributing to your cultivation? That being said, I’m not trying to provoke you. Even if you were to reject it, it has nothing to do with me, as I won’t even be surpri——”
Before he could finish, he was interrupted.
Qin Nan wore a calm face as he spoke, “Fine, let’s do it your way. Three hundred steps it is, I’ll bet with you!”
Was Qin Nan seriously accepting the bet?
The surrounding cultivators were utterly astonished.
Ying Xunlong panicked and blurted out, “Qin Nan, don’t be ruthless. This Triple Door is not as easy as you imagine!”
“Senior Brother Ying, don’t you worry, I have everything under control.” Qin Nan glanced at Xue Wuheng and calmly spoke, “However, I’ve got a request—if you lose, you will pay me two hundred Primary Stones, how does that sound?”
“Two hundred Primary Stones?”
It was Xue Wuheng’s turn to be shocked.
Even after exchanging all of his current possessions for Primary Stones, he would at most have thirty of them.
As for two hundred Primary Stones, even his eldest brother could not afford to pay such a price, let alone him.
“Two hundred Primary Stones it is!”
Xue Wuheng was not willing to give up on the chance after seeing Qin Nan taking the bait. After all, Qin Nan would never be able to reach three hundred steps.
At this stage, Ying Xunlong was left speechless. He had not expected Qin Nan to act on impulse.
The crowd of cultivators let out wry smiles. It seems like this Qin Nan has literally no idea how difficult the Triple Door is!
Being able to achieve two hundred steps was already considered a shocking determination, let alone three hundred steps!
The custodian posted at the entrance to the Triple Door wore a disdainful look after seeing this, but he did not say anything else apart from declaring in an expressionless tone, “Stop wasting time here. Enter the Triple Door at once. Remember, no demonic abilities are allowed to be unleashed within the Triple Door. Otherwise, you will be executed!”
Many of the cultivators answered, who made their way to the path of blue bricks while ignoring the farce between Qin Nan and Xue Wuheng.
“Qin Nan, I’m waiting for you to reach the three hundredth step!”
Xue Wuheng wore a smug look before he proceeded into the Triple Door.
“Try your best!”
Ying Xunlong said while shaking his head, before he too embarked on his journey.
At that instant, twenty-nine cultivators had stepped onto the path of blue bricks, leaving Qin Nan behind.
Qin Nan’s left eye of the divine God of Battle let out a gleam, allowing him to observe the first door being activated, causing a series of invisible forces to crush downward onto the figures of the twenty-nine cultivators.
“Three hundred steps, huh....”
Qin Nan mumbled to himself as he took his first step onto the path. As soon as he reached out with the step, his expression slightly changed.
An invisible pressure immediately covered his entire body, which was over ten times stronger than the gravitational force of the eighth peak, causing the Blazing Sun Golden Armor Body Technique in his body to be unleashed on its own.
“Such an incredible pressure…”
Qin Nan’s eyes glistened.
The first step alone had already brought such a terrifying pressure. What would it be like if I reached the hundredth step, or even the two hundredth step?
That’s totally unimaginable.
That being said, Qin Nan’s heart was completely filled with excitement!
“Here we go!”
Qin Nan uttered a roar while fully executing the Blazing Sun Golden Armor Body Technique, causing his flesh to exhort an explosive strength!
It was as if he could no longer feel the huge pressure suppressing him as he advanced forward at a steady pace. In just the blink of an eye, Xue Wuheng and Ying Xunlong were both a significant distance away behind him.
“Such impressive flesh!”
The same thought flashed across the minds of Xue Wuheng, Ying Xunlong, and the cultivators.
Although it was not their first time witnessing its strength, they were still astonished by the sight.
Xue Wuheng and Ying Xunlong were both filled with the lust for battle as they uttered furious cries while exhorting their strength to the fullest, resulting in a terrifying aura.
The remaining cultivators immediately executed their abilities respectively, as they were not willing to be left behind!
Meanwhile, the custodian guarding the Triple Door stared with his eyes open wide. It was his first time seeing all participants exhorting their fullest strength at the same time.
Qin Nan uttered a series of intensified breaths. At that instant, he had taken more than eighty steps.
In these more than eighty steps, the pressure from the first door rapidly grew, as if a person’s body was sinking deep into the ocean, causing him to have difficulties making his move.
At this rate, even the strength of the Blazing Sun Golden Armor Body Technique could not endure the pressure after reaching the hundredth step!
