Peerless Battle Spirit - Chapter 412
Chapter 412 - Yang Taitian
The crowd immediately gazed at Murong Xiang while wearing strange expressions.
Weren’t you trying to stop Qin Nan from joining the competition?
Weren’t you looking down on Qin Nan?
How about now?
Murong Xiang’s expression stiffened. The gazes from the crowd felt like a series of sharp blades poking his face, resulting in a burning pain.
“Cough cough, I did not expect Junior Brother Qin Nan to possess such outstanding battle power. Senior Brother.... Senior Brother I hope you achieve greater results in the Grand Competition of the Sixteen Mountains…” Murong Xiang wore an incredibly awkward expression as he forced the words out before fleeing from the scene. He completely lost the intention of staying any longer.
Fang Jian wore a pleasant smile after seeing this.
He could not help but admit that Qin Nan’s performance was too surprising. No one would have expected his strength to be this overwhelming.
The crowd of cultivators immediately took note of this secretly, to remind themselves not to trouble Qin Nan at any costs.
“Now that Murong Xiang has shown himself, I will probably stumble into the real culprit behind this in the near future!”
Qin Nan mumbled to himself, his thoughts as calm as the water’s surface.
Following this, a chatter took place among the cultivators on the dojo of Duanmu Peak, while Qin Nan stood at a concealed spot a distance away to observe his surroundings.
At that instant, following a loud crash, the two envoys and cultivators of Caomu Peak arrived at the scene.
Among them, a girl around the age of sixteen with an attractive face, a fair skin tone, a glamorous physique, and an extraordinary aura immediately attracted the attention of the crowd on Duanmu Peak.
“That must be the new genius from Caomu Peak, who is self-proclaimed to be the Princess. Even Chen Fei could not match her talent in Pill Alchemy!”
“Such a beauty! In just two or three years, she will definitely be a gorgeous gem!”
Qin Nan stood among the crowd wearing a faint smile. The girl was none other than Princess Miao Miao.
“The strength of the cultivators of Caomu Peak would not be too intimidating normally. However, some of the cultivators are capable of refining poison pills, something to keep an eye out for when battling against them!” Qin Nan’s left eye emitted a sparkling glow. There were over a hundred Martial Ancestor Realm cultivators from Caomu Peak, and every single one of them was a fourth-grade Xing ranked Pill Alchemist!
Following this, the cultivators from the second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh peak arrived consecutively.
If one were to gaze down from above, the dojo of Duanmu Peak was currently crowded with cultivators;each of them possessed a powerful aura as they were all experienced in battles.
The curtains of the grand occasion of the Qinglong Sacred Area were gradually being unveiled.
“The two brothers—Xue Wuji and Xue Wuheng—those three, and a few among that group…”
Qin Nan was no longer the limelight of the crowd. However, his eyes continued to scan the cultivators while taking note of those who were relatively powerful.
Among the cultivators of these seven peaks, there were a total of forty-seven cultivators who possessed a greater cultivation than his!
Not long after, the cultivators from the eighth to the fifteenth peak had all arrived, causing the number of Martial Ancestor Realm cultivators flooding Duanmu Peak to increase to a total of over one thousand!
How significant were one thousand Martial Ancestor Realm cultivators?
Previously at the Luohe Kingdom, there had only been less than three Martial Ancestor Realm experts!
In other words, a fourth of all the Martial Ancestor Realm cultivators in the lower district had gathered here!
Qin Nan’s figure shuddered violently. Among the cultivators of these fifteen peaks, there were a total of eighty three cultivators who were stronger than him.
At that moment, a voice appeared beside him. Qin Nan turned his head and realized the person to be Sima Kong.
Sima Kong had been busy earning a fortune from the cultivators of the Qinglong Sacred Area in the past month, filling his face with an incredibly pleasant smile.
“This Grand Competition of the Sixteen Mountains is not as simple as it looks. There will be a peerless genius taking part in it, thus it’s a must for us to work together.” Sima Kong spoke with a stern look without talking any nonsense, unlike his usual behavior.
“A peerless genius?”
Qin Nan was slightly startled.
Meanwhile, a series of synchronized footsteps could be heard, which felt like the rolling of drums. A voice immediately replaced the voices of the entire dojo.
The crowd could only see a young man wearing an icy expression leading the crew with an imperious aura like an emperor. Behind him were sixteen knights wearing crimson plates.
The whole dojo was then filled with a series of gasps.
“Why is he here!?”
“My god, Yang Taitian is here too!”
“Yang Taitian even brought his sixteen crimson knights with him, is he planning to kill a Martial Dominator?”
“Shit, with such a great troop supporting him, he will surely come first in the competition!”
The cultivators were astonished from the sight before them.
Qin Nan’s left eye emitted a sparkling glow and he glanced at the arriving troop. He immediately discovered Yang Taitian’s cultivation to be utterly terrifying. Although it was only peak Martial Ancestor Realm on the surface, the aura inside his body was two times stronger than Xue Wuji’s. Furthermore, each of the crimson knights were peak Martial Ancestor Realm as well, their auras synchronized with Yang Taitian’s with some sort of unique technique, allowing them to join forces at any time.
“Qin Nan, this Yang Taitian is not to be underestimated. Apparently he is the son of the Peak Leader of the sixteenth peak.” Sima Kong transmitted his voice and said, “This Peak Leader of the sixteenth peak is the most mysterious Peak Leader of the Qinglong Sacred Area. Rumors say that he is closely related to a faction from the upper district, thus his status is nothing weaker than Peak Leader Duanmu’s!”
“Furthermore, if Yang Taitian synchronized his force with his sixteen crimson knights, he could even slay a first-layer Martial Dominator Realm expert! He is our greatest foe in this Grand Competition of the Sixteen Mountains!”
Sima Kong explained in detail.
The son of the Peak Leader of the sixteenth peak?
Slaying a Martial Dominator?
Qin Nan’s eyes flickered.
This Yang Taitian was indeed extraordinary.
“So you are planning to cooperate with me?” Qin Nan glanced at Sima Kong.
“Of course, there is no way we can defeat Yang Taitian alone. That being said, if we work together, we might stand a chance against him…” Sima Kong said in a serious tone.
However, before he could finish, a sharp gaze suddenly landed on Qin Nan’s figure like the gaze of a god penetrating the space between them.
A boundless murderous aura immediately exploded.
Qin Nan’s expression turned dark. His instinct was on point.
Sima Kong’s figure shuddered violently. He then turned around and saw Yang Taitian in front of the crowd glaring coldly toward them without concealing his murderous intent.
Sima Kong’s mind immediately went blank.
What was going on? Why was Yang Taitian targeting them?
Qin Nan’s eyes flickered.
He suddenly felt a faint murderous intent coming from a different direction while Yang Taitian was unleashing his murderous aura. He turned his head around and discovered a skinny young man staring at him with a grin on his face.
Qin Nan’s left eye emitted a gleam. Following this, the expression on his face changed slightly. This young man’s cultivation was comparable to Yang Taitian’s!
“Who is this guy? It seems like he is not ranked among the custodians. Otherwise, he would be spotted by the crowd. Besides, there is no one who is comparable to Yang Taitan on the ranking...”
Qin Nan quickly thought.
While being immersed in his thoughts, his heart was filled with doubts too.
Who exactly possessed such a great authority to send two peerless geniuses to specifically deal with him?
Meanwhile, a series of explosions could be heard as the space above Duanmu Peak was torn apart.
The Peak Leaders had arrived!
