Chapter 128 - Qin Nan’s Comeback
The four Hall Leaders were here personally after receiving Old Shan’s order.
Old Shan did not give clear orders; he only told the four Hall Leaders to rescue Qin Nan from any danger. Besides that, the Hall Leaders were free to react according to the situation before them.
However, what the four Hall Leaders had not expected was that Vice-Leader Zhao and Cheng Biao would dare to shatter the Scarlet-Fanged Purple Dragon Badge into pieces!
What was the Scarlet-Fanged Purple Dragon Badge?
The existence of the Scarlet-Fanged Purple Dragon Badge was equivalent to the arrival of the Great Elder; even the Sect Leader of the Mystic Spirit Sect had to behave properly when seeing the Scarlet-Fanged Purple Dragon Badge.
What difference was there between Vice-Leader Zhao shattering the Scarlet-Fanged Purple Dragon Badge into pieces, and challenging the Great Elder?
At that instant, the four Hall Leaders finally realized why Old Shan had told four of them to come—things had gotten way too serious!
The Disciplinary Hall Leader was the angriest among the four Hall Leaders.
This was because the one that shattered the Scarlet-Fanged Purple Dragon Badge into pieces was someone from his Disciplinary Hall.
If Old Shan were to blame anyone, he as the Disciplinary Hall Leader would be the first one to be targeted; how could he not be furious?
As for Vice-Leader Zhao, Cheng Biao, and the other leaders, they completely lost their thoughts after being roared at by the Disciplinary Hall Leader, and failed to react.
Why did the Disciplinary Hall Leader turn so furious all of a sudden?
Wasn’t it just a badge being shattered?
Scarlet-Fanged Purple Dragon Badge?
That name sounds familiar...
Suddenly, the bodies of Vice-Leader Zhao and CHeng Biao shuddered violently, as their eyes filled with great terror, and their faces turned pale white.
At that instant, they finally recalled the significance of the Scarlet-Fanged Purple Dragon Badge!
Vice-Leader Zhao was extremely terrified, and immediately screamed out, “Hall Leader… Hall Leader… I… I… I… This…”
“Go f**k yourself!”
The Disciplinary Hall Leader let out a huge roar, and then rushed forward while emitting the terrifying aura of the peak of the Martial Emperor Realm toward Vice-Leader Zhao and Cheng Biao in everyone’s view.
Vice-Leader Zhao and Cheng Biao instantly trembled; they both stood no chance against such a force.
Following this, the Disciplinary Hall Leader was like he had transformed into a ferocious beast in human figure, as he landed countless punches filled with an incredible force onto the two like a thunderstorm.
BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG!
A series of explosions could be heard; Vice-Leader Zhao and Cheng Biao had lost their previous imperious appearances, and they let out cries of pain together with the sounds of their bones cracking.
All the disciples were dumbfounded after seeing this.
They had not expected the Disciplinary Hall Leader to become enraged all of a sudden, and beat the crap out of Vice-Leader Zhao and Cheng Biao.
Why is he doing this? Is it because of the badge?
After beating the two up for the period it took an incense to burn, the anger in the Disciplinary Hall Leader’s heart finally diminished slightly as he withdrew his punches and stood aside.
Vice-Leader Zhao and Cheng Biao were in an incredibly bad shape, with their clothes ragged and their bodies covered in blood. Their auras were extremely feeble, as if they were going to faint any second, causing everyone to inhale deeply upon seeing them.
An example was Mo Li, who completely lost his soul after seeing this.
Nangong Cheng who had been scornful previously in the ring had never expected that one day, he would see his highly respected master beaten up like a dog.
What Mo Li and Nangong Cheng did not know was that if it weren’t for the last bit of rationality in the Leader’s mind, he would definitely beat Vice-Leader Zhao and Cheng Biao to death on the spot.
An icy expression could be seen in the Disciplinary Hall Leader’s eyes as he spoke, “Vice-Leader Zhao and First Elder of the outer domain disciples; the two of you have colluded with each other and committed a serious offense. Today, I declare that you are deprived of your roles as Vice-Hall Leader and first elder, and will be detained in the Disciplinary Hall for a hundred years!”
Everyone’s heart skipped a beat after hearing this. They all knew that this would be the end for Vice-Leader Zhao and Cheng Biao.
A Martial Emperor cultivator had a life-span of one hundred and fifty years. At their current age, after being detained for one hundred years, they would not be able to have any achievements after being released.
Vice-Leader Zhao and the first elder lay on the ground moaning in pain. A blank expression could be seen on their faces, and their eyes were still filled with terror.
The two had never expected things to turn out this way.
This caused Vice-Leader Zhao to recall Gong Yang’s words; Gong Yang had reminded him not to be regretful of his actions, but he completely ignored it. Now, he was so regretful that he felt like vomiting blood.
Qin Nan glanced at the two before saying in a calm tone, “Hall Leader, Nangong Cheng and Mo Li are both involved in the plot too.”
As a matter of fact, Mo Li was only here to mock Qin Nan, he did not participate in the plot. However, as Qin Nan was someone who held his grudge, and the conflict between him and Mo Li was already at an unresolvable stage, Qin Nan would surely take hold of this chance to punish Mo Li.
Mo Li and Nangong Cheng’s bodies shuddered violently after hearing these words, and their eyes were filled with fear.
The Disciplinary Hall Leader waved his hand, “Nangong Cheng, Mo Li are to be deprived of their identities, and be detained for ten years!”
Qin Nan took a step forward and said, “These Disciplinary Elders tried to kill me too!”
The Disciplinary Elders all wore pale faces; they no longer had the same scornful attitude from before.
The Disciplinary Hall Leader did not hesitate to speak, “You Discipline Elders dare to abuse your authorities; you will all be detained for thirty years!”
After saying this, the Leader glanced at Qin Nan and said, “Young man, are you satisfied now?”
“The Disciplinary Hall Leader is indeed just in enforcing the laws, I have nothing more to say.” Qin Nan brought his fists together, as he continued to say, “However, my two friends there are both top geniuses with eighth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirits. They ended up not achieving top ten in the trial due to the first elder’s plot, causing them to lose a great chance…”
After hearing this, the four Hall Leaders were speechless; they obviously knew that Qin Nan was planning to get some benefits.
This was because the penalty that the four Hall Leaders gave Vice-Leader Zhao and Cheng Biao at the start was too light.
The Disciplinary Hall Leader felt unpleasant, but he had no choice but to say, “Fine, your two friends will be my disciples from today onward! Now that everything is settled, we’ll be leaving!”
The Disciplinary Hall Leader did not waste any more time as he escorted Vice-Leader Zhao, Cheng Biao, Nangong Cheng, Mo Li, and the Discipline Elders away immediately.
However, before leaving, a great anger could be seen in Mo Li’s eyes. Apart from mocking Qin Nan, he did not take part in the plot at all. Outside of his expectations, Qin Nan dared to set him up, resulting in him being detained for ten years!
What a disaster for him!
After the group was escorted away by the four Hall Leaders, the dojo fell into a weird silence.
Everyone’s gaze was focused onto Qin Nan.
Qin Nan was not affected as he went up to collect the pieces of the shattered Scarlet-Fanged Purple Dragon Badge and glanced at the crowd. He found Chu Yun and Xiao Leng among the crowd, and said with a sorry tone, “Xiao Leng, Chu Yun, it was all my fault that you two were targeted. This is all I can do for you two…”
“Nah, Brother Nan, that’s more than enough!”
Xiao Leng and Chu Yun waved their hands, while their faces wore excited expressions.
The Disciplinary Hall Leader was one of the six Hall Leaders, who possessed great authority; it was far better to become a disciple of the Leader than achieving the top five in the trial.
Qin Nan let out a relieved sigh after seeing their reaction; he then realized the crowd was still dead silent, causing him to ask curiously, “What now? Why are you all so quiet?”
The words caused the entire crowd to explode, like a bomb being detonated.
“OMFG, Senior Brother Qin Nan, you were so damn cool!”
“Senior Brother Qin Nan, you’re my idol. Even the four Hall Leaders were here to do you justice, that’s so f**king awesome!”
“Ahhh, Senior Brother Qin Nan, I thought you were going to die just then, I was so worried. I now realize that I have fallen deeply in love with you.”
The disciples were incredibly enlivened, as if they were going to rip the dojo apart.
At that instant, the second elder in the elders’ seating area collected his thoughts and announced in a loud voice, “I now declare Qin Nan to come first in the trial!”
The words caused the crowd to be stunned momentarily, before a blasting cheer erupted!
