Chapter 123 - Suppressed by a Single Slash
Everyone knew for sure that there was a huge difference between the Xiantian Realm and the Body Tempering Realm; the two were incomparable.
However, today the crowd had witnessed Qin Nan—who only possessed an eighth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirit and a Body Tempering Realm cultivation—suppress Nangong Cheng, who had a ninth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirit and had reached the Xiantian Realm. Continuous slaps one after another caused Nangong Cheng to have no chance to fight back!
Everyone knew Qin Nan had mastered the Minor Success Stage of the Arcane Realm; Even with the Arcane Realm, this was way too crazy right?
At that instant, one of the elders at the elders’ seating area blurted out in a shocked tone, “Qin Nan has reached the half-Xiantian Realm, his cultivation is at the half-Xiantian Realm! No, that’s not right, the Qi inside his body is so strange, it’s equivalent to the first-layer Xiantian Realm! It’s… it’s Atavistic Cultivation! Atavistic Cultivation!”
The words caused everyone to be even more shocked.
Qin Nan has reached the first-layer of the Xiantian Realm?
What in the world is Atavistic Cultivation?
Cheng Biao and Mo Li both collected their thoughts, and their expressions turned unpleasant.
Initially, they assumed Nangong Cheng would have no problem defeating Qin Nan with his Xiantian Realm strength. Who would have expected to see such a shocking outcome, that Nangong Cheng was slapped continuously on the face with no chance of fighting back.
Even Huang Long, Xiao Leng, and Chu Yun, who were quite familiar with Qin Nan, felt their lips twitching.
Qin Nan’s performance was way too shocking.
As for Mo Zishan and Xu You, they both stared with their jaw dropped; initially, they chose to surrender as they were furious at the first elder’s unfairness, to make way for Qin Nan.
However, it now seemed like Qin Nan did not need their help at all. In fact, them surrendering was a smart choice!
The whole dojo, after falling silent for a period of time, was filled with a loud cheer!
“My god, that’s so cool; Senior Brother Qin Nan just gave Nangong Cheng continuous slaps to his face!”
“Tsk, Senior Brother Qin Nan is too scary; the strength of first-layer Xiantian Realm is so terrifying.”
“HAHAHA, this is karma; who asked the master and disciple to manipulate the trial.”
The disciples felt extremely happy, to the point that even their blood started to boil.
Initially, after seeing the Xiantian Realm cultivation Nangong Cheng had displayed, they assumed Qin Nan would surely lose the battle. How could they not be excited after Qin Nan made such a comeback?
The first elder, Cheng Biao, could not stand it anymore, and the veins popped out on his forehead as he yelled, “Nangong Cheng, what are you waiting for; this guy practiced Atavistic Cultivation, which is against the rules. Hurry up and use your trump card!”
The yell felt like an exploding grenade, which instantly awakened Nangong Cheng; he let out a roar, and his figure went backward swiftly.
The crowd all took a deep breath before burst out laughing after seeing Nangong Cheng’s face.
Nangong Cheng’s appearance was completely different than his normal look, as his entire face was swollen with lumps, and his eyes were beaten up into a tiny gap, which gave him a hilarious appearance.
After hearing the laughs, Nangong Cheng felt himself being engulfed in fire as flames of fury rose within him; a berserk glint could be seen in his tiny eyes, “Qin Nan, I did not expect your strength to be so powerful; but you have to lose today, you have forced me so!”
Nangong Cheng let out a roar, and he then took a pill out and shoved it into his mouth.
The next second, Nangong Cheng’s aura was boosted incredibly, to where it rose to the second-layer Xiantian Realm!
Everyone’s expression was twisted instantly
Even Gong Yang rose up from his seat after seeing this and his face turned incredibly cold, “First elder, this is the Outer Domain Trial; Nangong Cheng dares to consume the Frenzied Demonic Pill. This has definitely broken the rules of the trial!”
“Rules or no rules, is a matter of my decision!” Cheng Biao said with a firm attitude; even though he was intimidated by Gong Yang, it did not mean he was terrified of him.
Besides, he was already furious after seeing Qin Nan slap Nangong Cheng’s face in front of the crowd; he did not care anymore.
There was only one thing in his mind, which was to defeat Qin Nan!
The crowd of disciples turned mad after hearing the words, as they blurted out.
“Shameless! Shameless to the max!”
“So shameless; using the Frenzied Demonic Pill to boost cultivation. How is this even a trial?”
“This pair of master and disciple is so shameless; not only did they manipulate the whole trial, they even consumed the Frenzied Demonic Pill as they stood no chance!”
“Piss off, piss off; Nangong Cheng does not have the right to participate in this trial!”
Previously, the disciples were intimidated by the first elder’s authority, but they could no longer stand it. If not because of the last sense of rationality in their mind, they would definitely have sprung toward him and caused a riot.
Mo Li was excited seeing this; although Qin Nan was able to suppress Nangong Cheng, since Nangong Cheng’s cultivation was increased to the second-layer Xiantian Realm, Qin Nan would be no match against him despite his strength.
“I hope Nangong Cheng will end up killing Qin Nan!” Mo Li let out a hideous smile.
Meanwhile, after consuming the Frenzied Demonic Pill, Nangong Cheng’s pair of tiny eyes instantly turned red, and became glued onto Qin Nan as he let out a huge roar, “Qin Nan, how dare a miniscule piece of trash like you to challenge me; I won’t kill you today, but I swear I will turn you into a permanent cripple!”
Nangong Cheng raised his Martial Spirit Blade, and lashed out with a huge slash.
The slash contained the force of the second-layer Xiantian Realm, which felt like a huge mountain—incredibly powerful.
The slash also contained the might of a ninth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirit, together with the Blade Intent of the Perfection Stage of One with the Weapon.
Even someone with a third-layer Xiantian Realm cultivation would panic facing this!
At that instant, everyone’s expression changed greatly as they could feel the threatening force from the slash.
Even Gong Yang, who was incredibly confident in Qin Nan, had his face turn unpleasant, as he clenched his fists tightly, causing his veins to pop out. If Qin Nan’s life was endangered, he would interfere to save him at all costs.
Despite that, Qin Nan’s expression remained unchanged.
Right now, Qin Nan’s Dantian had accumulated a great source of Qi, the extraordinary Atavistic Qi; its thickness was equivalent to the second-layer Xiantian Realm.
That was the reason he was able to suppress Nangong Cheng; that was also the reason why his expression remained unaffected after seeing Nangong Cheng boosting his cultivation by consuming the Frenzied Demonic Pill.
Finally, under everyone’s attention, Qin Nan’s figure moved.
Qin Nan simply stopped at the ground; following which, a forceful Saber Intent was fired from the ancient saber Wrath, which took the shape of an ancient saber slashing at Nangong Cheng.
At that instant, everyone’s heart trembled, as their eyes were filled with astonishment.
What kind of slash was that?
The Saber Intent was incredibly imperious, with no sign of weakness, as if anything in front of the slash would be destroyed.
Cheng Biao, who was immersed in anger, and the previously surprised Mo Li, had their expressions changed greatly at this moment.
As for Nangong Cheng who was facing the slash; as he saw the powerful approaching Saber Intent, the murderous intent and anger on his face froze instantly. His heart was utterly filled with terror as he yelled, “YOU…”
Before he could say anything, the slash had landed onto his sword.
An explosion was heard.
The crowd saw Nangong Cheng’s body flung backward as he vomited copious amounts of blood, before landing hard onto the ground with a close-to-dying appearance.
A slash through the air defeated the genius!
