Chapter 100 - The Imperious Badge
Qin Nan had always been ignorant to those who did not offend him. He had never met this Nangong Ershao before, who acted ruthlessly and planned to prohibit him from joining the auction on their first encounter.
Therefore, Qin Nan did not show any mercy.
Nangong Ershao was slightly startled. It was the first time he was told to “f**k off” after arriving at the Mystic Spirit Sect.
The outer disciples around them were shocked, before they burst out talking to each other.
“This guy is so ballsy, doesn’t he know that Nangong Cheng is Nangong Ershao’s brother?”
“Hmm? This guy looks familiar, I felt like I saw him before, let me recall… Right, he is Qin Nan. He came first in the Trial of Versatility, the one who achieved a thousand steps in the Mind-Seducing Ancient Bamboo Woods!”
“What? It’s him?”
The crowd of disciples was more excited after discovering Qin Nan’s identity.
“Tsk, tsk, who would expect Nangong Ershao to have a conflict with Qin Nan.”
“Hehe, I’ve heard quite some stories about this Qin Nan. It looks like there will be a good show here today.”
“I feel like this Qin Nan is going to be unfortunate, as he offended Nangong Ershao; ordinary people could not face the consequences.”
Among the disciples, many of them started to shake their heads and mock Qin Nan, as they did not think he would have any chance.
They did not witness the events which took place in the Trial of Versatility; they had only heard some rumors about it.
Nangong Ershao collected his thoughts swiftly, as his prideful face turned red with anger while he yelled, “Qin Nan, you…”
“Me?” Qin Nan interrupted him straight away, as a cold expression could be seen in his eyes before he said, “Nangong Ershao, I had no conflict with you whatsoever, and you plan to stop me from joining the auction. Do you think I’m someone to be bullied like that? I don’t want to waste any time with you, if you have the balls, fight me at the Hall of Life and Death!”
Qin Nan spoke rapidly, like a chain of bullets firing from his mouth.
The crowd of disciples and Nangong Ershao was completely stunned after hearing this, and lost the ability to talk.
No one knew how long had passed, before Nangong Ershao reacted with a cold expression and said, “I have to admit that I’m not your opponent in terms of cultivation. However, if you could not understand the current situation, I’ll let you see my influence, to stop you from joining the auction!”
After saying this, Nangong Ershao let out a hollow laugh and waved his right hand. An old man in a black robe who had been waiting for a long period approached them immediately and gave him a bow.
“Administrator, this guy was the one who spoke ruthlessly, messing up the order here. In my opinion, this trash should not be allowed to join the auction.” Nangong Ershao said. In his words, it felt like Qin Nan had turned into an unforgivable culprit.
“What? This guy is the one?”
The old man played a nice job cooperating, as he let out a shocked expression and turned toward Qin Nan before saying in a cold tone, “I’m the person in charge of the Treasure Vault’s first-floor. I now ban you from joining the auction, and entering the Treasure Vault in a month’s time; if not, you will have to face the punishments according to the sect’s rules.”
The disciples exploded after seeing this.
They were not dumb; it was obvious that Nangong Ershao colluded with the person in charge to deal with Qin Nan.
“Hehe, it looks like Qin Nan has lost his ground this time.”
“This lad is still new to the Mystic Spirit Sect; he has no idea how tricky this Nangong Ershao is.”
“It seems like Nangong Ershao has the upper hand…”
These outer disciples were excited to witness this, as they all voiced out to express their thoughts.
“Person in charge is it?” Qin Nan remained calm, as he took out a badge from his pocket and said, “I’m sorry. I’ve got an elder’s badge here. I’m afraid you don’t have the right to punish me.”
Upon seeing Qin Nan’s action, the old man and Nangong Ershao glanced toward the badge at the same time.
After a while, the person in charge burst out laughing, “HAHAHA, where did you get this badge from? I’ve never seen it before. Qin Nan, you dare to pretend that you have an elder’s badge, which is a far more serious offense. If you don’t leave here at once, I’ll handle you myself according to the sect’s rules!”
The old man looked scornfully after finishing his sentence.
As the person in charge of the Treasure Vault, he had no doubt heard rumors about Qin Nan, but he chose not to believe it, not to mention the fact that Nangong Ershao was Nangong Cheng’s brother, who had a great future lying ahead. Therefore, he decided to collude with Nangong Ershao, so he would have a chance to fawn upon Nangong Cheng.
As for Nangong Ershao, the reason he wanted to find trouble with Qin Nan, was because of a lady named Chu Yun.
Among the outer disciples, everyone knew how ruthless this Nangong Ershao was. He had the hobby of hooking up with the female disciples, thus when he first saw Chu Yun, he was stunned by her beauty, and approached her with some pickup lines. Despite that, he was completely ignored by Chu Yun.
This caused Nangong Ershao to feel agitated. After a worthwhile investigation, he realized that Chu Yun was fond of Qin Nan.
As a result, Nangong Ershao was not feeling cordial about this Qin Nan.
“You don’t recognize this badge?” Qin Nan was slightly startled. He did not expect this old man to not recognize the Scarlet-Fanged Purple Dragon Badge.
“Humph, are you trying to confuse me with a random badge? You guys, capture this culprit with me at once!” The old man yelled out. Following it, around ten guards with tenth-layer Body Tempering Realm cultivation appeared and approached Qin Nan in a surrounding formation.
The disciples were even more excited. They did not expect to see some action straight away.
However, at this moment, a loud imperious voice could be heard, “What’s going on here?”
The crowd immediately discovered a middle-aged man approaching them at a steady pace, while emitting an imperious aura.
Everyone’s expression changed upon seeing this person.
“Elder.” The person in charge was shocked, who went up to him and said immediately, “Elder, this disciple named Qin Nan dares to fake an elder’s badge. His action is an offense toward the sect’s rules.”
“Oh?” The man let out a curious expression. As the first floor elder of the Treasure Vault, he had no doubt heard of Qin Nan’s name before, as he said in a calm tone, “If that’s the case, he should be punished according to the sect’s rules. The badge, where is it?”
“Elder, this is it…”
The person in charge immediately held the Scarlet-Fanged Purple Dragon Badge in his hand and showed it to the middle-aged man.
The middle-aged man initially planned to take a quick glance, but his face was contorted thoroughly from just a glimpse, as he blurted out, “This… This is…”
The old man, Nangong Ershao, and every disciple were stunned. Why does this elder appear to be losing his mind?
“You goddamn bastard, how could you not recognize this badge!” The middle-aged man collected his thoughts, as veins popped out on his forehead as he said furiously, “I have really gone blind, since when did the Treasure Vault have a useless piece of shit like you? Get out of my sight at once, and don’t ever step inside the Treasure Vault again!”
The old man was dumbfounded upon seeing this.
What’s going on?
Why did the elder just tell him to leave?
Why is this happening?
Not only was the old man was shocked, even Nangong Ershao and the crowd were utterly startled.
“What? Do you want me to take action myself?” The middle-aged man stared with an icy glance, as a murderous intent was emitted.
“I…” The person in charge completely lost his mind; without any time to think, he immediately blurted out, “I’ll leave, I’ll leave, Please don’t do it…”
While saying this, the old man rushed toward the exit at an incredible speed, leaving the crowd speechless with their eyes and mouths wide open.
