Peerless Battle Spirit - Chapter 409
Chapter 409 - Trouble Paying a Visit
“Such a powerful icy force!”
Qin Nan’s eyes glistened.
The icy force exerted by Xue Wuji vaguely contained the energy of the Heavens and Earth, thoroughly surpassing Xue Wuheng’s strength.
“Thunderous Flame Strike!”
Qin Nan’s eyes flickered with battle intent as he executed the Blazing Sun Golden Armor Body Technique, instantly summoning thunderous flames that completely devoured the icy storm like a beast with its mouth open wide.
The strength of the thunderous flames could not be underestimated.
Xue Wuji’s eyes flickered with astonishment.
He never thought that Qin Nan, whose cultivation was only at the peak Martial Emperor Realm, could possess such strength. However, he immediately discovered that Qin Nan’s real strength was most likely around the sixth-layer Martial Ancestor Realm.
“Still an ant!”
Xue Wuji’s eyes turned cold once again as he raised his palm. A glacier slowly emerged from the center of his palm.
At that instant, the temperature in the surroundings dropped rapidly, as if a terrifying icy storm was about to descend.
Ying Xunlong and the other cultivators were astounded.
“The Eye of Lightning Tribulation!”
Qin Nan showed no signs of backing off, his left eye emitting ferocious red lightning sparks.
However, at that instant, a blasting roar could be heard.
Over ten figures descended from the sky, who turned out to be the custodians of the eighth peak, each with a cultivation at the peak Martial Ancestor Realm.
Among the custodians, a middle-aged man quickly analyzed the situation before him and could not help but let out a sigh. Both Qin Nan and Xue Wuji possessed formidable backgrounds, thus he could not afford to offend either of them.
However, he clearly knew that if the two were to battle further, it would result in unwanted influences.
“I hope you two will give some face to me and stop fighting right now. Do you hear me?” The middle-aged man calmed his thoughts and spoke.
“Who do you think you are?” Xue Wuji snapped without mercy, “Get the f**k out of my sight. Otherwise, I’ll deal with you too!”
The middle-aged man’s expression turned slightly astonished while the expressions on the remaining custodians turned unpleasant.
Meanwhile, another roar could be heard coming from the sky, “Xue Wuji, why are you so mad? I believe we shall all let it go.”
“A Martial Dominator Realm expert?”
Xue Wuji’s breathing came to a halt.
He had now realized that the incident taking place here had most likely attracted the attention of the eighth peak’s experts. If this were to continue, it would not bring any benefit to him.
“Alright, I guess I’ll compromise this time.”
Xue Wuji pinched the glacier in his hand while glimpsing at Qin Nan with a prideful look, “Consider yourself lucky today, I’ll let you go temporarily! But do keep this in mind, if you dare to participate in the Grand Competition of the Sixteen Mountains, I will surely break your limbs so you would learn that a high Martial Spirit’s rank sometimes doesn’t mean shit at all!”
Xue Wuji was extremely cunning, he did not stay any longer after saying this, as he flew into the sky while grabbing Xue Wuheng’s figure.
The Force of Lightning Tribulation in Qin Nan’s eyes slowly dissipated after seeing this.
He could not help but admit that even though his strength had improved quite significantly in the past three months, there was still a huge difference compared to Xue Wuji’s strength.
“Stronger, I have to become stronger!”
Qin Nan clenched his fists while his eyes turned fiery.
His strength was still too weak for now, which was why Xue Wuji dared to be this scornful.
“Everyone, you have my thanks!”
Qin Nan calmed his thoughts while bringing his fists together toward Ying Xunlong and the custodians of the eighth peak.
These people had been supportive of him since the beginning.
“Don’t worry about it, it’s all that Xue Wuji’s fault…”
Ying Xunlong and the others shook their heads while they were secretly impressed by Qin Nan.
If they were to take Qin Nan’s place, despite being furious, they would not dare to go against Xue Wuji.
Qin Nan had a chat with the group and promised to meet Ying Xunlong at the Grand Competition of the Sixteen Mountains. He then headed straight to Duanmu Peak.
Every disciple participating in the Grand Competition of the Sixteen Mountains were required to gather at their respective peaks, awaiting the arrival of the envoys who would bring them to Duanmu Peak where the event would be held.
When Qin Nan returned to Duanmu Peak, many could be seen gathering at the dojo.
These people were all Martial Ancestor Realm disciples. Not even a single Martial Emperor Realm disciple could be seen.
Fang Jian, who was standing in front of the crowd, wore a joyful expression after seeing Qin Nan.
As he expected, Qin Nan did plan on participating in the Grand Competition of the Sixteen Mountains. In this case, it was highly possible that Duanmu Peak would be able to come first.
If they were to come first, it would serve as a great honor for their mountain, hence resulting in great benefits for Fang Jian.
“Hmm? Qin Nan has arrived?”
“I was told that he has been cultivating at the Triple Door for the past three months!”
“Why is his strength at the peak Martial Emperor Realm still?”
The entire dojo became lively instantly as every disciple glanced at Qin Nan with complicated looks in their eyes.
“Junior Brother Qin Nan, your Senior Brother has been waiting a long time to meet you.” At that instant, a melancholic voice could be heard, which turned out to be Senior Brother Zhao Fang.
Zhao Fang held a horsetail whisk in his hand while wearing a long robe, giving him a handsome appearance.
Beside him stood Jiao Shiyi and Xiao Feipeng who no longer had the appearance of geniuses, but their faces were entirely filled with happiness.
Qin Nan—who was about to speak—felt his body become covered in goosebumps after seeing Zhao Fang, while his face turned dark.
He had completely forgotten that Zhao Fang, who possessed a cultivation of peak Martial Ancestor Realm, was qualified to participate in the Grand Competition of the Sixteen Mountains too!
“I must keep an eye on him during the Grand Competition of the Sixteen Mountains!”
Qin Nan reminded himself and walked toward Fang Jian without glimpsing at Zhao Fang.
However, at that instant, a mocking voice could be heard, “Oh my, isn’t this the peerless genius Qin Nan? It’s my honor to finally meet you in person!”
A middle-aged man wearing a golden robe approached Qin Nan with an imperious aura.
His arrival caused many of the disciples to be startled. Even Zhao Fang’s expression turned icy instantly.
Fang Jian’s expression darkened as he spoke, “Murong Xiang, what are you doing here? This is the Grand Competition of the Sixteen Mountains, it’s none of your business!”
Qin Nan was startled.
He had no idea who this person was.
Meanwhile, Fang Jian transmitted his voice to Qin Nan, “Qin Nan, there are a few Vice-Peak Leaders at our Duanmu Peak, who have a chance to be promoted to become Peak Leader of Duanmu Peak in the future. This Murong Xiang is the son of the first-ranked Vice-Peak Leader Murong! He is extremely vicious and smug, thus he definitely is not here to befriend you!”
Qin Nan’s mind lightened up after hearing this.
Previously, Peak Leader Duanmu had mentioned that someone was planning to harm him if he were to participate in this Grand Competition of the Sixteen Mountains. So they are already on the move now?
Murong Xiang let out a hideous laugh as if he was proving Qin Nan’s guess to be accurate, “Fang Jian, I’m sorry. I was just told that I’m one of the envoys in charge of the participants! As such, I do have some business to deal with here. Furthermore, on behalf of the envoy in charge, I now declare that Qin Nan has no right to participate in the competition!”
The crowd was astonished hearing the words.
