Peerless Battle Spirit - Chapter 714
Chapter 714 - Sealing the Godly Candles Path
If it were only Progenitor Wen Dao and the Wendao Elders, the Sky-Scorching Emperor and his crew could still hold them off for a while, but now, with the activation of the powerful formation, it might cost Qin Nan his life.
“Duan Qing, let’s go!”
The Sky-Scorching Emperor yelled and covered Qin Nan’s figure with the power of the Emperor’s Seal.
The Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird let out a cry as it spat out flames that engulfed the figures of the crew and dragged them into the void, dodging the approaching attacks from Progenitor Wen Dao’s crew and the formation.
Progenitor Wen Dao and the Wendao Elders landed on the Godly Candles Path.
Sacred glows burst out from their figures, which intertwined and formed glowing chains that sealed off the area within three li of them. Even a Martial Sacred Realm expert could not break through it.
Meanwhile, the figures of Sky-Scorching Emperor and his crew reappeared in another spot.
The Sky-Scorching Emperor and the others glanced at Qin Nan and halted their speech upon seeing his expression.
Qin Nan wore a calm expression, with green veins vaguely appearing on his forehead.
“Who would have thought that this formation in the sky would be this powerful.”
Qin Nan exhaled deeply.
If it weren’t due to the activation of the formation in the sky, the Sky-Scorching Emperor and his crew could definitely earn some time for him as he made his way up the Goldy Candles Path.
The time would be enough for him to advance to the end of the Godly Candles Path and draw out the Heaven-Shattering Saber!
“However, this Heaven-Shattering Saber shall be mine still!”
Qin Nan’s gaze sharpened once again.
It was impossible for anyone else apart from him to draw out the saber!
The crowd and the other authorities were still wearing blank expressions on their faces, as they had still yet to collect their thoughts after the series of events.
What was the Godly Candles Path?
Why was Duan Qing trying to make his way up there?
“Everyone,” Progenitor Wen Dao gazed coldly at Duan Qing’s group as he spoke, “You have seen it right;at the end of the Godly Candles Path, the golden palace is where the precious treasure is located! If anyone is able to light up all the candles when taking the Godly Candles Path, the person would have the chance to claim possession of the precious treasure!”
The crowd was stupefied hearing this!
The Godly Candles Path!
At the end of it lay the precious treasure, the one that only existed in legends!
No wonder Duan Qing was trying to dash toward the palace ruthlessly. He was aiming for the precious treasure!
At that instant, the eyes of the crowd became fiery. The precious treasure served as a chance for them to alter their destiny, granting them an unimaginable future!
“That being said, the Dao-Seeking Treasure Vault belongs to us Dao-Seeking Mountain!” Progenitor Wen Dao snapped, “And only those below the Martial Sacred Realm are allowed to enter the Dao-Seeking Treasure Vault! Therefore, the disciples of the Dao-Seeking Mountain Mountain with cultivations below the Martial Sacred Realm will enter the Godly Candles Path first! Followed by the remaining disciples and cultivators!”
Hearing this, many rogue cultivators wore unpleasant looks on their faces, but did not dare to voice out.
Although the disciples of the Dao-Seeking Mountain had the chance to enter the Godly Candles Path first, only the destined one would claim possession of the precious treasure, thus the order of entering the Godly Candles Path did not really matter.
If acquiring the precious treasure was not their destiny, it would not make a difference if they had the chance to enter the Godly Candles Path first.
“We’ll let the people of the Dao-Seeking Mountain enter first!”
“That’s fine with us!”
The Leader of the Trading Alliance and the Vice-Leader of the Wanxiang Pavilion calmed their thoughts and nodded. As long as their disciples were given the chance to enter the Godly Candles Path as well, it did not matter who would be going first!
Things would not be the same if the Dao-Seeking Mountain was stopping them from entering the Godly Candles Path.
“Of course...Duan Qing and the people of the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom will be going last!” Progenitor Wen Dao said with a hollow laugh.
Duan Qing, weren’t you trying to go in first?
In your dreams!
You will be the last to enter instead!
“Progenitor Wen Dao, what are you implying?” The eyes of the authorities of the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom flickered coldly, as terrifying auras were unleashed from their bodies.
“Forget it,” Qin Nan transmitted his voice to the Sky-Scorching Emperor Sky-Scorching Emperor and the others, “It won’t make any difference.”
“This…” The crew was stunned, as they did not expect Qin Nan to say such words. Just a moment ago, Qin Nan had been desperately trying to make his way to the palace first.
Qin Nan’s expression became calm.
He suddenly realized the reason why the Dao-Seeking Treasure Vault had revealed itself to the crowd, giving everyone a chance to acquire the precious treasure. It seemed like the right arm of the divine God of Battle had purposely done so.
The reason being that Qin Nan had decided not to draw the saber out last time. This time, by purposely revealing itself, if Qin Nan still chose not to draw it out, it would give the chance to someone else.
“Since I’m here now, before I make the decision, no one else can draw the Heaven-Shattering Saber out.”
Qin Nan murmured to himself. As such, it did not matter who would attempt it first.
“Spread the word, all disciples below the Martial Sacred Realm shall make their way to the Dao-Seeking Treasure Vault at once!” Progenitor Wen Dao gave out the command.
In just a brief while, rapid bell chimes could be heard echoing in the thirty-six snowy mountains of the Dao-Seeking Mountain, summoning the disciples to the Dao-Seeking Treasure Vault.
In the meantime, messages were delivered to the disciples through their badges.
Following this, the entire Dao-Seeking Mountain became restless.
“What? The Godly Candles Path has appeared! Everyone has a chance to claim possession of the precious treasure!”
“Gasp! Let’s go there at once! If I were If I were able to get the precious treasure, my life would be different!”
“Don’t you dare compete against me! I’ll go first!”
Whoosh whoosh whoosh!
Rapid piercing sounds could be heard.
The rogue cultivators and the authorities could only see the disciples of the Dao-Seeking Mountain arriving continuously. With a rough glimpse, there were at least four thousand disciples who had just arrived.
Besides that, the number was still increasing.
The Dao-Seeking Treasure Vault had become a really grand event!
Zhang Bifan began to maintain the order of the disciples upon receiving the command, “Core disciples, inner disciples, and outer disciples, line up at once. Now, Tong Xingwei, you’re first…”
Tong Xingwei was overjoyed hearing this, who immediately sprang toward the Godly Candles Path.
Progenitor Wen Dao coldly stared in the Sky-Scorching Emperor’s direction. A big gap was created on the wall of chains, allowing Tong Xingwei to pass through.
The entire place fell silent at this moment.
Even though everyone was aware that the precious treasure was located at the end of the Godly Candles Path, no one knew what was going to happen as they advanced on the Godly Candles Path.
Even Progenitor Wen Dao and his crew held their breaths.
Tong Xingwei took a deep breath and began walking toward the end of the Godly Candles Path.
At that instant, a shocking occurrence took place!
The candles on both sides of the path were lit up by blinding flames, illuminating the surroundings, dying the sky crimson red… All the candles were lit up!
