Peerless Battle Spirit - Chapter 465
Chapter 465 - The Epic War Begins
The Underworld Bridge—according to the ancient rumors, when those who died crossed the Underworld Bridge and drank the Five-Flavored Tea of Forgetfulness, they would then be reincarnated.
“Under this bridge lies the Mengpo River. While crossing the bridge, if one’s cultivation is not strong enough, the person’s mind will be invaded by evil presences. The person will then be controlled and jump into the river, turning into a dead soul!” Death’s Servant reached out his bloody tongue and licked his lips, “You should be able to see the dead souls trapped inside the Mengpo River. They were all powerful cultivators before they died. Therefore, even if you are a Martial Highness Realm expert, you have little chance of surviving after falling into the Mengpo River!
“Crossing the Underworld Bridge will be your second trial. The one who crosses the bridge first will be the winner, and will be rewarded with a drop of Dao Liquid!”
After hearing this, Princess Miao Miao let out a hollow laugh, “This Dao Liquid is useful in improving one’s Martial Skill Talent, and has a better effect than the Heart of Bodhi! If I didn’t guess it wrong, this drop of Dao Liquid is specifically prepared for Xiao Zhonghuang too, right? If that’s the case, what’s the point of this trial?”
The Longhu Dominator Beast and the others wore icy looks after listening to the words.
First trial: The Heart of Bodhi!
Second trial: The Dao Liquid!
It was obvious that these two trials were just stepping stones for Xiao Zhonghuang!
Death’s Servant coldly snapped, “So what? Does that make any difference? I’m the person in charge of the trials! It’s your own business if you are not planning to take part in the second trial! I’m more than happy to send you out!”
“How nice for the offer;a mere Death’s Servant dares to be this lawless?”
Princess Miao Miao’s face was filled with great anger as her aura turned restlessly.
“Princess Miao Miao, don’t do it.”
Qin Nan immediately reached out his hand and grabbed her figure while shaking his head.
Now was not the time to deal with Death’s Servant, regardless if he was abusing his power and being partial to Xiao Zhonghuang. Any conspiracy would be deemed useless in front of absolute strength.
We shall allow them to fool themselves for a while longer.
Xiao Zhonghuang and his crew were enlightened seeing their enemies’ reaction, while their eyes wore scornful looks!
The Heart of Bodhi, the Dao Liquid;with the help of these two rare items, was there any way that Qin Nan would stand a chance against them at the Reaper’s Platform?
Death’s Servant wore a disdainful look, before he said calmly, “Once you’ve crossed the Underworld Bridge, you will then enter the Reaper’s Platform. The second trial begins now, and the time limit is two hours. By the way, you are allowed to use violence on the Underworld Bridge!”
Violence was allowed!
The last few words caused the atmosphere at the scene to intensify.
Xiao Feipang, Peak Leader Yang, and the others glanced at Qin Nan with hideous looks.
Qin Nan wore a calm expression as if he was not affected at all.
Behind him, Princess Miao Miao, the Longhu Dominator Beast, Sima Kong, and Zhao Fang became excited. It was as if something was boiling inside their eyes!
Being picked on twice in a row, did they really think they were people that could be bullied so easily?
As for the remaining rogue cultivators, their figures shuddered violently. They would not want to involve themselves in the battle later.
Death’s Servant uttered a cry and flicked his sleeves, carrying the crowd to the Underworld Bridge.
As soon as Qin Nan landed on the bridge, he could hear endless screams coming from both sides. The screams were so loud that they penetrated his eardrums and almost shattered his soul.
In the Mengpo River under the Underworld Bridge, countless dead souls cried out in excitement as if they had just seen food. Their twisted figures sprang out from the river and charged toward the crowd on the bridge.
“Since your group did not cheat in the first round, I will specifically grant you the Death’s Talisman to prevent you from being targeted by the evil presences.”
Death’s Servant flicked his finger and twenty nine talismans landed onto the figures of Xiao Zhonghuang and his crew. The talismans were then engulfed in flames, which turned into clouds of deathly smoke that encapsulated their figures.
The figures of Xiao Zhonghuang and his crew shuddered violently, while the expression of pain on their faces slowly dissipated.
The dead souls charging at the crowd appeared to be unable to discover their presences, while their eyes were locked onto Qin Nan and his companions as they sprang in their direction.
“Sh*t, how shameless. I can no longer stand it. Ten Thousand Arts of Daoism, Soul-Protecting Chant!”
Sima Kong let out a curse after seeing the sight before him. He was surprised once again as he had not expected Death’s Servant to go this far to help Xiao Zhonghuang’s crew cross the bridge safely. He immediately coiled his finger and fired a few rays of light onto the figures of Qin Nan and the others.
Qin Nan could only feel the glow to be extremely pure, impenetrable by the evil presences. The initial screams echoing in his ears instantly vanished.
The dead souls charging toward them stopped in their tracks as if they had encountered an intimidating presence.
Sima Kong wore a prideful smile while glancing at Death’s Servant in a challenging manner.
Death’s Servant’s face turned icy. He had not expected this guy to master the Art of Daoism.
“Humph, so what if you’re able to escape from the dead souls? You all, intercept Qin Nan now, and knock him into the Mengpo River. I’ll press forward first!”
Xiao Zhonghuang glanced at Qin Nan and his crew disdainfully, before he sprang toward the end of the Underworld Bridge.
“Qin Nan you imbecile, die!”
The Peak Leaders and the Martial Dominator Realm experts uttered raging roars.
Their hatred toward Qin Nan had long been planted in their hearts, and with their line-up of twenty-eight experts, they would surely crush Qin Nan’s crew of five with ease!
“You bunch of assholes, I’ve been waiting a long time for this!”
The Longhu Dominator Beast was the first to utter a roar, whose figure was immersed in a blinding golden glow, before it regained its giant dragon-head-tiger-body figure.
“Let’s move out!”
The Longhu Dominator Beast let out a cry facing Qin Nan and the others.
Qin Nan, Princess Miao Miao, Sima Kong, and Zhao Fang all leapt onto the Longhu Dominator Beast’s back before it instantly charged at Peak Leader Yang and his crew at a bursting speed like a huge mountain.
The twenty eight Peak Leaders wore mocking looks.
Trying to challenge them with only five people?
Everyone knew that they had initially possessed the cultivation of the Martial Highness Realm, but it was now suppressed to the peak Martial Dominator Realm with Blood Magic. Despite that, their understanding of Martial Arts definitely surpassed ordinary peak Martial Dominator Realm cultivators!
Besides, the other ten cultivators in their line-up were also the best among the Martial Dominator Realm cultivators of their Sacred Area!
How could five people stand a chance against such a formidable line-up?
Not to mention that they had Death’s Servant on their side!
Death’s Servant wore a faint grin on his face after seeing this.
As for the other rogue cultivators, when they learned that an epic war was going to take place on the bridge, they immediately went to the edge of the bridge and crossed it while resisting the dead souls using various weapons and Martial Arts.
Among the rogue cultivators, only the black-robed man with the name Zero slowly raised his head, while his eyes flickered angrily.
Abusing the power and changing the rules to bully Qin Nan!
Trying to deal with Qin Nan by abusing their numbers!
Did these people seriously think they could bully Qin Nan as they wished?
He was his brother!
The flicker in the eyes of the black-robed man instantly transformed into a terrifying murderous intent!
