Peerless Battle Spirit - Chapter 444
Chapter 444 - Killing the Princess with a Curse
Qin Nan and Princess Miao Miao—who were surrounded by rays of lightning—immediately noticed the strange phenomenon and glanced toward it.
Following this, their expressions changed greatly.
“Why are they here? And is that…”
Qin Nan instantly recognized Zhou Xuan, seven cultivators who were once the Prospective Saints of the Qinglong Sacred Area, Jiang Bilan, and two other young men.
These two young men possessed incredible auras. One’s was on par with Zhou Xuan’s, while the other’s surprisingly surpassed Zhou Xuan’s, and whose Martial Spirit was shockingly first-grade Di rank!
“A first-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit? Who is he? Could he be Xiao Zhonghuang, but isn’t his Martial Spirit supposed to be half-Di ranked?”
Qin Nan was shocked.
He soon realized that this man was Xiao Zhonghuang without a doubt, who hid the truth regarding the rank of his Martial Spirit, since no one in the lower district would possibly have a first-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit. Even Zhou Xuan only had an eighth-grade Xuan ranked Martial Spirit.
“Such a powerful Tribulation!”
Xiao Zhonghuang’s crew was dumbfounded.
They could not sense it from the Heaven-Illuminating Godly Mirror, but after arriving at the scene, they could now tell how terrifying the Tribulation was.
“Qin Nan!” Jiang Bilan’s eyes were filled with cold murderous intent as she snapped, “You won’t be able to escape this time! Lu Tiangang, Zhou Xuan, attack now!”
Lu Tiangang and Zhou Xian both nodded their heads before their figures turned into two rays of light firing into the sky in an intimidating manner.
As the Saints of the Feiyang Sacred Area and the Qinglong Sacred Area, both of their cultivations had reached the third-layer Martial Dominator Realm, in addition to the various Martial Skills that they had mastered. With the two cooperating, countless rays of magical light were emitted as they unleashed their attacks, resulting in a shocking scene.
“Qin Nan, this is what you get for going against me. Today will be the day of your death!”
Xiao Zhonghuang stood a distance away and placed his hands behind himself while staring down at Qin Nan.
Beside him, Jiang Bilan and the seven Prospective Saints of the Qinglong Sacred Area completely unleashed their auras in accordance with the plan onto Xiao Zhonghuang’s body.
Xiao Zhonghuang’s hands swiftly made a gesture. It appeared that he was going to execute his killing blow by combining their cultivations!
“This ain’t good!”
Qin Nan was startled.
Their plan was really simple—using Zhou Xuan and Lu Tiangang to restrict their targets’ movements to give Xiao Zhonghuang some time to execute the killing blow.
Previously, Qin Nan would not be intimidated, but Princess Miao Miao was right in the midst of overcoming her Tribulation!
“Princess, try to defend yourself for a while. Allow me to get rid of these pests!”
Qin Nan’s eyes were filled with a hint of murderous intent.
He had initially thought he would need to wait six months to fight these people, but he had not expected them to teleport here to eliminate him!
Did they really think he was someone to be bullied easily?
Qin Nan uttered a roar while his body was thoroughly engulfed in flames of the phoenix, which spread out and struck Zhou Xuan and Lu Tiangang’s bodies.
“Such powerful strength!”
Zhou Xuan and Lu Tiangang were dumbstruck.
How was this possible!
Wasn’t Qin Nan’s cultivation only at the peak Martial Ancestor Realm, why was his strength this terrifying!
As expected of Saints, their reactions were outstanding as they immediately let out roars and unleashed their artifacts protecting their flesh. Even so, their figures were still sent flying by Qin Nan’s attack.
“How could this be!”
Jiang Bilan and the seven Prospective Saints of the Qinglong Sacred Area were shocked.
They clearly remembered that Qin Nan’s strength was not this powerful three days ago!
Jiang Bilan in particular could remember that Qin Nan’s cultivation was only at the Martial Emperor Realm when he last dueled with her. It had only been a month since then, and she had only managed to raise her cultivation to fifth-layer Martial Ancestor Realm with the full support of the Trading Alliance. In comparison, Qin Nan had been the target of an endless hunt, but his strength appeared to be stronger than Zhou Xuan’s and Lu Tiangang’s!
How crazy was that?
“Hmm? Such powerful strength, you shall not be left alive!”
A murderous intent could be seen from Xiao Zhonghuang’s eyes.
He would be the only peerless genius of the lower district!
“Four Demons of Chaos, countless negative sides, curse of the eternity, fall of the kings!”
Xiao Zhonghuang let out a cry while his hands emitted a monstrous demonic glow that absorbed the cultivations of the Prospective Saints and Jiang Bilan, slowly summoning a black skeleton on his hand.
With a push of his palm, the black skeleton vanished into thin air before reappearing right in front of Qin Nan. Before he could react, the black skeleton dived into his forehead.
Qin Nan’s movements halted as the black skeleton intruded on his divine Sense, which then exploded and killed his life force and spiritual force.
Xiao Zhonghuang burst out laughing.
The ability he executed was his strongest move—the Chaos Cursing Technique. Once the curse was executed, even those whose cultivation were two or three ranks higher than his would be killed by the curse.
Furthermore, his execution of the Chaos Cursing Technique was supported with the cultivation of the seven Prospective Saints and Jiang Bilan. Even a fifth-layer Martial Dominator Realm cultivator would stand no chance against it.
The copper mirror in Qin Nan’s divine Sense shuddered violently all of a sudden as a powerful force burst out from it, devouring the power of the curse instantly.
“Such a close call!”
Qin Nan was covered in cold sweat. If it weren’t for the protection of the copper mirror, the Chaos Cursing Technique would most likely take his life.
Xiao Zhonghuang’s smile froze after seeing this.
In addition to him, Lu Tiangang, Zhou Xuan, Jiang Bilan, and the seven Prospective Saints were all stunned.
It didn’t work?
That’s the Chaos Cursing Technique, why did it not work against Qin Nan?
Was this a joke!
“Since you are willing to travel this far to hunt me down, I shall eliminate you all today!”
The flames of the phoenix burst out from his body and encapsulated his figure as he sprang toward Xiao Zhonghuang!
His strength was no longer the same as before. He would not have any problem facing ten opponents at once!
“Shit, the plan has failed. The Chaos Curse Technique has no effect on Qin Nan. His strength is too powerful now. It’s impossible to defeat him within half the period it took an incense to burn. Does this mean everything was in vain? If we can’t kill Qin Nan here, after he returns to the Qinglong Sacred Area, there won’t be another chance to kill him within the next six months…” Various thoughts swept across Jiang Bilan’s mind rapidly as she glanced forward and somehow her gaze stopped at Princess Miao Miao’s figure who was currently suffering the terrifying Tribulation, causing her face to turn pale. Seeing this, a deadly plan rose within Jiang Bilan’s heart, before she transmitted her voice to Xiao Zhonghuang.
“Qin Nan, I will teach you who’s the real peerless genius today!”
Xiao Zhonghuang let out a cry while an aura similar to that of an emperor burst out from his body. His hands formed a gesture, hinting that he was going to execute the Chaos Curse Technique once again!
“Hmm? They should know that this skill is useless against me, why would they use it again? Could it be…”
Qin Nan immediately sensed something to be wrong. Although Xiao Zhonghuang was extremely full of himself, he would not make such an idiotic move. It was obvious that he was trying to do something else!
“Shit, he’s aiming for Princess Miao Miao!”
Qin Nan’s expression changed immediately. The Purple Cloud Tribulation was extremely powerful. Princess Miao Miao was already in great danger facing it alone, thus she would be severely injured if someone were to target her now.
Qin Nan’s left eye immediately summoned rays of lightning of the galaxy, forming a sea of lightning aiming to devour Xiao Zhonghuang’s figure.
Xiao Zhonghuang was astonished. He did not expect Qin Nan’s strength to be this outstanding. The lightning alone was enough to make his scalp go numb.
“Use this talisman!”
Jiang Bilan had already expected this to happen, who let out a scream as she took out an ancient talisman.
The seven Prospective Saints acknowledged the order and sprang forward unleashing their Martial Spirits before firing their full power into the talisman, setting it on fire, which then emitted a magical glow encapsulating Xiao Zhonghuang’s figure.
Xiao Zhonghuang’s figure surprisingly disappeared from the sea of thunder and reappeared behind Qin Nan.
The talisman was known as the Shadow-Switching Talisman. Only those whose cultivations were above the fifth-layer Martial Dominator Realm would be able to use the talisman which was capable of teleporting someone.
Qin Nan’s hair stood on end immediately. He turned around and was about to unleash his killing blow.
He could only see Xiao Zhonghuang wearing a cruel smile on his face while his eyes focused on Princess Miao Miao’s figure in the midst of the Tribulation. Following this, the black skeleton in his hand was fired, which transformed into a ray of black light penetrating Princess Miao Miao’s body.
Qin Nan burst out screaming. His face turned pale instantly!
Jiang Bilan’s face turned pale also as she controlled the talisman in order to teleport Xiao Zhonghuang’s figure back.
Now that the time was up, most of the geniuses were running out of energy. Lu Tiangang, Zhou Xuan, and the others all leapt into the bloody formation.
Jiang Bilan and Xiao Zhonghuang also entered the formation respectively.
However, before Xiao Zhonghuang left the place, he did not forget to burst out laughing, “HAHAHA, Qin Nan, It’s true that I did not expect your strength to be this outstanding, but does it matter? This girl is someone important to you, right? She has been cursed now. Not only will she fail the Tribulation, she will die soon enough. Even the Sacred Leader could not save her! HAHAHA…....”
His figure vanished following the outrageous laugh, together with the bloody formation.
Meanwhile, the Princess—who was already weakened by the series of lightning strikes—had her face turn pitch-black instantly after being struck by the Chaos Curse Technique. It was as if her cultivation had been devoured completely, causing the artifacts surrounding her to turn dull and drop to the ground.
The rumbling purple rays of lightning roared ferociously as if they were demons trying to devour her tiny figure!
