Peerless Battle Spirit - Chapter 514
Chapter 514 - Arrival of the Princess
...In the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom, the Ninth City...
Three figures suddenly descended with powerful auras, causing the destroyed city to quaver.
The cultivators were utterly terrified.
The three figures were none other than the Wen Dao Elders.
“It appears that the news from the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom is real. Qin Nan was experiencing his Tribulation here, which ended up killing a large number of experts.” One of them immediately analyzed the situation, while he grabbed a random peak Martial Emperor Realm cultivator with his hand and snapped, “Where did Qin Nan go?”
“He...he was…teleported away by a Martial Highness…” The cultivator spoke with a trembling voice.
“Teleported away?” One of the Wen Dao Elders was startled before learning the truth after further interrogation. Qin Nan had been teleported away by the expert of the Vermilion Bird Platoon to prevent his Tribulation from killing every cultivator of the Ninth City.
“How bold of the Vermilion Bird Platoon! Does it matter if these trash are killed! How dare he teleport Qin Nan away! I’ll deal with him once I capture Qin Nan!”
The Wen Dao Elders became furious.
“I’ll head to the Heavenly Barrier Mountain Range;you two should take the east and the west!”
They immediately made up their minds and spread out in different directions without hesitating.
After their departure, the Martial Sacred Realm experts from the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom, the Wanxiang Pavilion, and the Trading Alliance took turns to arrive and understand the situation, before spreading out as well.
On this particular day, the people of the Four Great Factions were astounded.
They had never seen their factions send out all of their Martial Sacred Realm experts just to hunt a mere cultivator.
That being said, only the authorities of the Four Great Factions knew that sending out their Martial Sacred Realm experts was worth the effort, as long as they were able to capture Qin Nan in the end!
They assumed that Qin Nan was only able to trigger the ten thousand li Tribulation because of Sacred Leader Qinglong and the Heaven-Shrouding Herb. If there were to let Qin Nan grow stronger freely, it would serve as a terrifying disaster to the Four Great Factions.
...In the Heavenly Barrier Mountain Range...
Qin Nan had no idea what was taking place in the upper district. After pondering for a moment, he gave all of his Chaos Qi to the Copper Mirror. Its icy voice then disappeared, allowing Qin Nan to calm his thoughts.
“I’m still too weak now. I have to grow stronger. Either way, I shall not let Sacred Leader Qinglong and the left eye of the divine God of Battle down.”
Qin Nan mumbled to himself and made up his mind, before he became doubtful once again.
Where should he go now?
“Oh right, the old white-haired man from the Vermilion Bird Platoon did give me a badge.”
Qin Nan took out the badge.
It was crimson in color, with a bloody vermilion bird carved onto its surface, resulting in an intimidating sight.
Qin Nan inserted his Qi into the badge, causing it to shine brightly and summon the illusionary figure of Elder Wang.
“Qin Nan, I know that you’re being hunted by the Four Great Factions. However, the Vermilion Bird Platoon couldn't care less about your identity. If you manage to overcome the Tribulation successfully, as the vice-platoon leader, leader, I invite you to join our platoon. This badge is known as the Vermilion Bird Badge. You can enter White Tiger City freely with it, and find the person in charge of the Vermilion Bird Platoon…”
After saying this, the illusionary figure of Elder Wang disappeared.
“Is he being serious?”
Qin Nan was slightly troubled, causing him to frown.
Was this Elder Wang being sincere or trying to lead him into a trap?
“If he were trying to harm me, he would have done it back at the Ninth City. There was no need for him to go this far and teleport me to the Heavenly Barrier Mountain Range. It’s more likely that he’s trustworthy.”
Qin Nan analyzed the situation.
Either way, he could still head to White Tiger City first and plan his next step there. Things would all work out in the end.
Qin Nan’s figure left the scene with a flicker.
However, a rare occurrence took place at that instant. Qin Nan could feel his blood turning restless.
“What was that?”
Qin Nan was taken by surprise. He immediately checked his body and was astonished after taking a glimpse.
He could only see countless light dots appearing in his blood. It seemed like they possessed some kind of intelligence, as they continued to flow out from his pores through his meridians.
The lights dots were like tiny bugs, which gathered together and formed a mirror-like object in front of him.
Qin Nan’s eyes flickered with astonishment. This mirror was definitely an artifact;how had it come out from his blood?
“Yo, Xiao Nanzi.” A pleasant voice could be heard from the mirror along with the appearance of an attractive face, who turned out to be Princess Miao Princess Miao Miao.
“Princess Miao Miao? What on Earth…”
Qin Nan’s eyes widened.
“How disappointing.” Princess Miao Miao curled her lips disdainfully, “This is the Illusionary Mirror. Did you forget about our blood pact? I was able to transfer the mirror to you through our blood pact, so we could communicate despite being far away.”
“No wonder.” Qin Nan immediately came to a realization while his eyes flickered with excitement, “Such a magical artifact, where did you get it?”
“Where else would I get it from, of course I’ve stolen it.” Princess Miao Miao’s eyes were filled with disdain.
Why was my servant this stupid? Didn’t he know how gentle I am?
Qin Nan’s face darkened. He then blurted out as a sudden thought came up to him, “Princess, where are you now?”
“Me? The Princess will not answer you.” Princess Miao Miao straightened her face, “Who told you to teleport me away without my permission?”
“Err…” Qin Nan wore an awkward expression.
“Fine, I’ll stop teasing you,” Princess Miao Miao giggled after seeing his reaction, “As for the place where I am, you won’t be able to come here for the time being. I’ll tell you when the time is right. By the way…”
Princess Miao Miao’s eyes turned icy as she spoke, “I was just told that the Four Great Factions are now aware of the incident that took place at the Ninth City. They’ve sent out Martial Sacred Realm experts to search for you!”
“Martial Sacred Realm experts?”
Qin Nan wore a hideous grin while his eyes flickered coldly after hearing this.
Well well well!
The Four Great Factions had even sent out Martial Sacred Realm experts just to hunt him down!
“You should hide for the time for the time being. Once I’ve healed Lady Mu, I’ll eliminate the Four Great Factions for you.” Princess Miao Miao raised her chin while saying in a confident tone.
“Heal Lady Mu?” Qin Nan was even more confused.
Where exactly was Princess Miao Miao? What was she doing there?
“Forget it, Xiao Nanzi, answer me;is there any nice wine in the Ninth City?” Princess Miao Miao’s eyes blinked rapidly with an anticipatory look.
Qin Nan let out a cough. He was not an alcoholic person, and was busy trying to overcome his Tribulation. Why would he be concerned about that?
Speaking of which, if he wasn’t mistaken, the Princess liked alcohol, didn’t she?
“Qin Nan!” Princess Miao Miao’s expression darkened instantly, “How dare you! You know that I love to drink! Why didn’t you keep an eye on it!”
“Err...I’ll keep that in mind in the future!”
Qin Nan’s forehead was covered in cold sweat, before he suddenly came to a realization after a slight pause.
I’m now an undefeatable Martial Dominator who had awakened the Qinglong left arm too. Why am I still feeling nervous when Princess Miao Miao becomes infuriated?
“Humph, I’m going to punish you!” Princess Miao Miao said with a stern look.
“Punish?” Qin Nan subconsciously asked, “How?”
“Mm, head forward three li, then head left for another three li, and bring me the things you find there.” Princess Miao Miao wore a proud look, before she threatened after realizing something, “And don’t you dare eat it without my permission. Otherwise, I’ll let you have a taste of the real punishment I have in mind.”
 TL Note: A reminder that this is the nickname that the Princess gave to Qin Nan.
