Peerless Battle Spirit - Chapter 523
Chapter 523 - A Heaven-Defying Appearance
The fifth pair of wings grew out on the Shura’s back. Its initial black figure turned crimson, while its aura solidified and swept its surroundings like a hurricane.
The faces of the geniuses, including Xue Meng and Ling Wushuang, turned slightly pale.
“Xu Ao, are you sure you’re doing the right thing?” Elder Wang snapped with a sharp look.
“HAHAHA, is there any problem?” Xu Ao placed his hands behind himself and said smilingly, “If he is truly talented, he shouldn’t be afraid of the Shura. However, if it’s only a fluke, the Shura will teach him a great lesson, as no one is allowed to cheat in the Selection of the Three Platoons!”
Meanwhile, the Shura locked its reddened eyes onto Qin Nan’s figure. It seemed to possess some sort of intelligence, as it was aware that this man before him was not afraid of his bloody aura, which served as a great humiliation to it. It then let out a raging roar before it sprang toward Qin Nan.
At that moment, a ferocious murderous intent filled the entire hall.
The faces of Xue Meng and Ling Wushuang became utterly pale. They had not expected the fifth-layer illusion would actually be the Shura attacking Qin Nan physically.
Even though the Shura was only a mere illusion, the negative emotions it emitted were on par with the strength of the first-layer Martial Highness Realm. In other words, even a first-layer Martial Highness Realm expert would lose his mind after being struck by it.
At that instant, Ling Wushuang—who had previously been mocking Qin Nan—could feel his lips trembling.
Even though Qin Nan had stolen the attention of the crowd, causing him to feel unpleasant and utter the mocking comments, he had never planned to actually harm Qin Nan.
“Trying to harm me directly?”
Qin Nan’s eyes flickered ferociously.
Under such circumstances, he could make use of the chance to test his strength after reaching the Undefeatable Martial Dominator Realm.
To the crowd’s surprise, Qin Nan remained stationary in place while he raised his head and uttered a thunderous roar.
A powerful aura was emitted toward the Shura in a destructive manner like a surging tide.
Following an explosion, the Shura was shattered into pieces immediately without any sign of a struggle.
A heaven-defying Martial Dominator with a heaven-defying Primordial Spirit surpassing the strength of the Heavens and Earth, who possessed a terrifying power.
The Shura was a mere illusion formed by various negative emotions. Even though it could damage the mind of an ordinary first-layer Martial Highness Realm cultivator, it was impossible for it to harm the heaven-defying Martial Dominator!
“Mm? Not bad. I did not expect my will to be this powerful after becoming an Undefeatable Martial Dominator.”
Qin Nan wore a smile on his face upon seeing this.
However, the people surrounding him, including Xue Meng, Meng, Ling Wushuang, Vice-Platoon Leader Xiong, Elder Wang, and Xu Ao were left completely speechless by the sight.
What just happened?
Did he just eliminate the Shura with a single sentence?
How...How powerful was that!
Qin Nan soon calmed his thoughts and glanced at Xu Ao before saying in a calm tone, “Was that enough to prove I’m not cheating?”
It went without saying that he had heard the doubts of the crowd, but he was too lazy to explain himself.
Apart from his sabers, he had never used any kind of artifacts in his battles.
It was the first time that the Vice-Platoon Leader of the White Tiger Platoon had been left speechless.
In addition to him, everyone else immediately collected their thoughts.
Using an artifact?
What a joke!
This guy was simply too powerful!
Ling Wushuang in particular felt greatly embarrassed, causing his face to redden severely.
He finally realized how hilarious his questioning was.
“Eliminating the Shura with mere words! How impressive! I’ve only stumbled into such a talented cultivator recently, and your talents are as outstanding as his!” Elder Wang wore an anticipatory look as he spoke, “What’s your name? I hope to invite you to join our Vermilion Bird Platoon! You will not be disappointed with the resources provided to you!”
Vice-Platoon Leader Xiong was about to speak too, but he chose to remain silent.
Such a talented genius would not be willing to join their Black Tortoise Platoon.
The genius Platoon.
The genius disciples in the first-floor of the hall were envious of Qin Nan, including Xue Meng.
She possessed a sixth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit and an identity as the daughter of the Second City’s City Lord. In terms of either background or talent, she was considered outstanding among the cultivators of the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom. Despite that, Elder Wang had not personally invited her to join the Vermilion Bird Platoon.
Qin Nan frowned slightly and began to ponder.
Meanwhile, Xu Ao recovered from the shock and burst out laughing, “HAHAHA, young man, is there any reason for you to join the Vermilion Bird Platoon? Come to our White Tiger Platoon, the strongest genius platoon of the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom, where all the best talents gather! Furthermore, the resources we provide completely outmatch the other two platoons!”
The crowd was left in awe. Even the Vice-Platoon Leader of the White Tiger Platoon was trying to recruit Qin Nan.
Elder Wang’s face coldened, “Xu Ao, mind your words.”
“Mind my words? Thanks for the heads up, Elder Wang.” Xu Ao nodded his head with a humble look, before he gazed at Qin Nan and blurted out, “Young man, I believe that you have no idea that the previous top talent of the Vermilion Bird Platoon has taken the initiative to leave his platoon and join us, all because the Vermilion Bird Platoon is full of shameless, unpassionate people!”
“Xu Ao, you——”
It was as if was as if someone had just stepped on Elder Wang’s reverse scale, causing his face to redden in anger.
The lips of Vice-Platoon Leader Xiong and the crowd twisted after hearing this, but they remained silent.
They were aware of the incident that had taken place in the past, but the truth was not as Xu Ao had stated.
“What? Elder Wang, are you trying to use violence against me?” Xu Ao let out a mocking grin.
Elder Wang’s chest pulsated heavily. He remained silent for a brief period, before glancing at Qin Nan with a stern look and speaking in a serious tone, “Young cultivator, the Vermilion Bird Platoon will not let you down if you choose to join us.”
The speech was spoken with great sincerity despite its length.
As soon as he finished speaking, Xu Ao’s expression became even more scornful, “This is what your Vermilion Bird Platoon has always done, giving blank promises to your disciples——”
Upon saying this, Xu Ao hesitated for a moment before glancing at Qin Nan and speaking, “If you were to join our White Tiger Platoon, we would offer you a drop of blood of the divine Beast protecting the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom—the Skyhowl White Tiger—which is extremely useful in cleansing your flesh!”
The words served as a great explosion among the crowd.
