Chapter 170 - First Encounter with Ouyang Jun
“Li Hong? What does Senior Sister Li Hong want from me?”
Qin Nan’s face was filled with a confused look.
In fact, he was doubtful from the very beginning.
Previously at the lecture for the outer domain disciples, Senior Sister Li Hong had gifted him a personal badge. Now that he had just arrived at the inner domain, Senior Sister Li Hong sent him an invitation.
Qin Nan never thought that he was charming enough for Senior Sister Li Hong to fall for him in just a short period of time.
“Through her previous lecture, I was able to expand my sight and settle down my Martial Heart after setting my eyes on the dream I want to pursue, all thanks to her. Now that she has personally invited me, either way, I should pay her a visit.”
After Qin Nan made up his mind, he exited the residence and proceeded to the forty-third residence.
The forty-third residence was located at a concealed spot, difficult to be discovered. The difference between it and the other residences was that the main entrance of the forty-third residence seemed to be tougher, as if it was made of some unique materials.
“This is Taiyuan Refined Ore, the material used to forge Mystical Weapons.” Qin Nan’s eyes flickered as he nodded his head.
At the Inner Domain Peak, many inner domain disciples would modify their residences, fortifying them and improving them with extra functionalities according to their needs.
Qin Nan only heard rumors about it, but he had now seen it with his own eyes.
“Junior Brother Qin Nan, is that you? Come in.” At that instant, Li Hong’s voice could be heard coming from the residence.
Qin Nan then pushed the door open and entered the residence.
Upon entering the residence, Qin Nan was surprised after seeing various plants and flowers inside the residence, resulting in a pleasant scent and a satisfying sight.
Li Hong stood in the center of the residence, wearing a black close-fitting outfit, presenting her perfect curves, and a sense of decisiveness.
“Senior Sister Li Hong.” Qin Nan went up and brought his fists together, “Thanks for your lecture from before, it was extremely helpful to me.”
“You’re welcome.” Li Hong waved her hand. As usual, her behaviors were extremely straightforward, “The reason I summoned you here is due to a request from someone, to introduce you to him.”
“Who might that be?” Qin Nan was slightly startled.
At that instant, a figure came slowly toward them from the small hut inside the residence.
The figure belonged to a beautiful-looking young man, wearing a white outfit. A golden dragon badge could be seen hanging around his waist.
Qin Nan glanced at the young man, and instinctively executed his Eyes of the Divine Battle Spirit. With a glimpse, his eyes were instantly filled with astonishment.
“A cultivation base of the tenth-layer Xiantian Realm, only a step away from reaching the Martial Emperor Realm. Not only that, he possesses a tenth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirit, and has mastered the Minor Success Stage of the Arcane Realm. Most importantly, the golden dragon badge hanging around his waist is a Houtian Weapon, and I can sense a great force encapsulated within the badge…”
Qin Nan took a deep breath to calm himself down.
Through the observation using his Eyes of the Divine Battle Spirit, he could easily tell that this young man, besides having a great talent, also possessed a formidable background.
“So you are Qin Nan?” The young man halted in his tracks and raised his head, looking down at Qin Nan with a smug appearance.
A single action was able to completely display the young man’s pridefulness.
Qin Nan let out a smile, as if he did not care much about the young man’s attitude, “That’s me, and you are?”
Before the young man could speak, Li Hong interrupted, “Qin Nan, this is Senior Brother Ouyang Jun. He is the top genius of the inner domain; he is the one who wanted to see you.”
“The top genius of the inner domain?”
Over a hundred thoughts flashed past Qin Nan’s mind, who quickly calmed himself down as he said, “Senior Brother Ouyang Jun, would you mind telling the reason for summoning me here?”
“The reason I called you here is to give you a chance to join the Jun Alliance.” Ouyang Jun held his hands behind him and said in a prideful tone, “This is a great chance for you, make good use of it.”
“The Jun Alliance?”
Qin Nan was startled.
What is the Jun Alliance?
Is it a powerful organization?
Li Hong appeared to guess Qin Nan’s doubts, who said, “Qin Nan, the Jun Alliance is an organization established by Senior Brother Ouyang Jun personally, with the focus of recruiting the geniuses of the Mystic Spirit Sect. Only real geniuses are permitted to join the Jun Alliance. I myself, am a member of the Jun Alliance.”
Qin Nan frowned his eyebrows and said, “What are the benefits of joining the Jun Alliance? And what are the obligations?”
“In terms of benefits, it’s more than what you would expect.” Ouyang Jun spoke in an imperious tone while waving his hand, “Once you’ve joined the Jun Alliance, there’s nothing you can’t settle within the Mystic Spirit Sect. It won’t be a trouble even if you killed someone in the sect. To be straightforward, you will be under my—Ouyang Jun’s—protection! On a side note, among the top ten geniuses of inner domain, eight of them have joined my Jun Alliance! As for the obligation? You are to obey my commands and serve me after joining the Jun Alliance, that’s all!”
An astonished look could be seen from Qin Nan’s eyes.
Able to settle anything within the sect?
Killing someone in the sect won’t even cause any problem?
It was obvious that the strict rules of the Mystic Spirit Sect forbid infighting among the disciples. Once discovered, even a super genius would end up being expelled from the sect.
Although Qin Nan did expect Ouyang Jun to have quite a formidable background, it was far more powerful than what he had in mind.
“I’m sorry.” Qin Nan collected his thoughts and shook his head, before saying with a smile, “Senior Brother Ouyang Jun, I have no intention to join the Jun Alliance, as I’m used to the freedom I have right now. That being said, if the Jun Alliance need my help with anything, I’m happy to lend a hand.”
Qin Nan was not attracted by the ‘benefits’ given by Ouyang Jun.
Most importantly, joining the Jun Alliance would mean he had to obey Ouyang Jun’s commands. It was not something Qin Nan would succumb to.
Li Hong was not surprised at Qin Nan’s words. However, an icy aura was emitted from her attractive eyes.
Ouyang Jun’s expression instantly turned unpleasant as he said, “Qin Nan, don’t think you are allowed to be so scornful with your mere background and talent. Let me tell you, being personally invited by me, Ouyang Jun, to join the Jun Alliance is a pleasure and a grace given to you, but you dare to choose to reject my offer?”
Qin Nan’s face immediately turned cold after hearing the words.
He did not expect Ouyang Jun to say such thing.
Joining the Jun Alliance is a pleasure and a grace given to me?
Nonsense, that’s ridiculous.
Without any hesitation, Qin Nan calmly said, “Senior Sister Li Hong, I’ve got something to attend to, so I won’t stay any longer. Excuse me.”
After saying this, Qin Nan turned around and proceeded to the exit, with no further intention to speak any nonsense.
This was his usual manner, only those who respected him would receive his respect in return.
Even if this Ouyang Jun were to have a shocking background, he would not step even half a step backward.
“Hold it right there!”
Ouyang Jun was furious upon seeing this, as his eyes were filled with a terrifying murderous intent.
With his identity, even the Hall Leaders would treat him respectfully like a VIP, since when a mere outer disciple had the guts to go against his will?
If it weren’t to draw Princess Miao Miao over to his side through Qin Nan, why would he care to convince him to join his Jun Alliance?
“Qin Nan, I’m telling you, if you dare to leave right now, it will be treated as a disrespect toward me. If you dare to offend me, despite the support from Old Shan and a Martial Ancestor Realm expert, your life and death is just a matter of my words. If I demand that you die, then you will surely die!” Ouyang Jun’s face turned incredibly dull, like a poisonous snake ready to attack.
“Is that so? I’ll be waiting!”
Qin Nan left the residence without turning his head around, not even a glimpse was given to Ouyang Jun throughout the whole process.
