Chapter 136 - Crystallic Flower
Mo Qing returned to his residence in a clumsy state and began to treat his wounds.
During the process, the thought of the incident caused him to feel angrier.
So what if she’s in the Martial Ancestor Realm?
Being a Martial Ancestor cultivator means she can do whatever she wants?
Mo Qing clenched his teeth; he immediately came up with an evil plot in his mind.
However, before he had the chance to execute his plot, shocking news was spread among the sect.
An inner disciple elder had been robbed! The Disciplinary Hall Leader had been robbed!
The culprit was a little girl who referred to herself as Princess Miao Miao.
Most importantly, this Princess Miao Miao appeared to be an Honorable Elder of the Mystic Spirit Sect!
At that instant, Mo Qing lost his thoughts entirely. Even the Disciplinary Hall Leader had been robbed and did not dare to avenge himself. What gave him, the third elder of inner disciples, the right to seek revenge?
In the end, Mo Qing was extremely depressed; What kind of background does Qin Nan have, not only is Old Shan fond of him, now he even has a Martial Ancestor to look after him!
At the outer domain dojo, the crowd of disciples—including both the outer domain and inner domain—glanced at Qin Nan respectfully.
The disciples were not dumb; when they saw Elder Mo Qing dared to attack Qin Nan in the public, they clearly knew that someone powerful in the Mystic Spirit Sect supported him to deal with Qin Nan.
However, who could have expected Princess Miao Miao to interfere in the midst of the attack, who even turned out to be a Martial Ancestor expert!
Apart from a formidable background, Qin Nan was now protected by a Martial Ancestor expert, how crazy was that?
Qin Nan let out a wry smile after detecting the gaze from the crowd. Despite that, his heart could surprisingly feel a hint of warmth.
After taking a deep breath, Qin Nan went up to Princess Miao Miao and said gently, “Thanks for your help…”
Princess Miao Miao did not even look at him, but waved her hand impatiently and said, “Don’t disturb me.”
After saying this, she started playing with the storage bag in her hands with an excited expression; her eyes glistened with a hint of lust.
Qin Nan felt his lips twitching; he did not expect his sincere gratitude to be instantly rejected.
Following this, Qin Nan sat down on the ground and began to meditate to heal his wounds.
After a while, a ray of light approached the place from the sky, which turned out to be an old white-haired man.
The old man was holding a horsetail whisk, giving him the appearance of a daoist; the aura emitted from his body was slightly stronger than Mo Qing.
The old man was none other than the second elder of the inner disciples, Zhang Taiyi.
Zhang Taiyi scanned the crowd of disciples and as his gaze locked onto Princess Miao Miao, his eyes filled with a hint of intimidation. Following this, he glanced at the crowd and said with a loud voice, “Due to the incident just now I, Zhang Taiyi, will lead you guys to the Martial Serendipity Pavilion. As too much time was wasted, I’ll not spend any more time speaking nonsense. You five come with me at once.”
Qin Nan, Huang Long, and the others nodded their heads and followed the old man.
Behind them was no doubt Princess Miao Miao.
Due to the constraint of the blood pact, Princess Miao Miao and Qin Nan were forced to stay within a hundred miles of each other. Therefore, Princess Miao Miao had no choice but to follow them to the Martial Serendipity Pavilion.
The Martial Serendipity Pavilion was located in the west of the Luohe Kingdom, on the ocean named ‘Autumn Star’.
The Autumn Star Ocean was one of the three main oceans of the Luohe Kingdom. Its name was given because, during autumn, the ocean turns incredibly transparent, perfectly reflecting the stars in the sky.
A huge mountain was located beside the Autumn Star Ocean; as it was relatively close to the Autumn Star Ocean, it was named ‘Autumn Mountain’.
Although Autumn Mountain was not as famous as Tianfeng Mountain, there were countless beasts and treasure on Autumn Mountain, which attracted many rogue cultivators here to explore the mountain, trying to find some fortunate encounters.
The top four sects of the Luohe Kingdom would take a rest at Autumn Mountain every time before proceeding to the Martial Serendipity Pavilion.
After over ten days’ time, Zhang Taiyi led Qin Nan, the others, and Princess Miao Miao until they arrived at Autumn Mountain.
The place allocated for the Mystic Spirit Sect was on top of a mountain. The mountain was actually a cliff, and those who jumped off the cliff would find themselves in the water of the Autumn Star Ocean.
Zhang Taiyi glanced at the group and said, “There are still five days left before the Martial Serendipity Pavilion is open. In these five days, you are allowed to act freely. However, be reminded that every time the Martial Serendipity Pavilion is about to be opened, the number of rogue cultivators at the Autumn Mountain increases tremendously; this place is full of danger. Try not to have conflicts with anyone here. Each of you takes one of these badges. If there is any danger, crush the badge immediately, and I’ll be there as soon as possible.”
The group nodded their heads and received the badges from Zhang Taiyi.
However, no one had the intention to linger around; there were only three days left, hence everyone decided to make use of the time cultivating, instead of going on an adventure.
Qin Nan and Princess Miao Miao entered a room. Before Qin Nan could cultivate, Princess Miao Miao spoke in a secretive tone, “Qin Nan, there is something I need your help with.”
“What thing?” Qin Nan replied with a sense of alarm.
Although Princess Miao Miao did help him before, Qin Nan still could not trust Princess Miao Miao’s personality entirely.
“Here is a map. Follow the map to Autumn Mountain, and retrieve everything there. Of course, everything you collect will be mine.” Princess Miao Miao took a piece of map out and passed it to Qin Nan.
“Where did you get this map from? What kind of stuff will I find there?” Qin Nan felt instantly lost.
“Don’t you worry about that,” Princess Miao Miao said, “As for the stuff, it’s Crystallic Flowers; if there was nothing wrong with the map, you should find a total of eighty stalks of Crystallic Flowers. Although Crystallic Flowers are considered relatively low-class, each stalk should still sell around a price of one thousand Martial Emperor Pills.”
“WHAT?” Qin Nan was shocked. Even though he had never heard of Crystallic Flowers before, with a price of one thousand Martial Emperor Pills each, did that mean eighty stalks of Crystallic Flowers were worth eighty thousand Martial Emperor Pills?
Qin Nan took a deep breath and said in a firm tone, “No way, it is most likely going to be dangerous; if I were to go, we have to split the earnings in half!”
“Half?” Princess Miao Miao let out a laugh and said, “Qin Nan, I just saved your life and you still want half of it? Humph, if I did not interfere back then, you would have been crippled by that, whatever his name is. I initially thought you were a man of justice, but now you’re so disappointing…”
“Stop stop stop…”
Qin Nan was immediately left speechless, unable to find any words to refute, leaving a depressed expression on his face.
Initially, he was extremely touched when Princess Miao Miao rescued him, but he had not expected the reason behind it was to have him do her a favor.
“Fine, I’ll do it.” Qin Nan clenched his teeth and received the map.
Either way, Princess Miao Miao did save him once, which served as a favor. Although Qin Nan was unwilling to do it, he had always been grateful toward those who helped him; hence, he felt obliged to do it.
“By the way, because of the blood pact, we have to stay within hundred miles of each other. Where would you be when I’m off collecting the Crystallic Flowers? Why aren’t you coming with me too?” Qin Nan asked after remembering the crucial question.
Princess Miao Miao glanced at Autumn Mountain, and emitted a terrifying aura before she said, “I’ve got my own plans!”
