Chapter 178 - A Letter
Five hundred thousand Martial Emperor Pills were stacked in front of Qin Nan into a small mountain, emitting an attractive shine from the surface.
Qin Nan unleashed the Divine Battle Spirit and acted with his fastest speed, grabbing handfuls of over a hundred Martial Emperor Pills each and shoving them into his mouth. His actions were so fast that his hands became blurry.
One thousand Martial Emperor Pills!
Three thousand Martial Emperor Pills!
Eight thousand Martial Emperor Pills!
In just the period it took for an incense to burn, Qin Nan had consumed a total of twenty thousand Martial Emperor Pills.
However, seeing that the Divine Battle Spirit remained calm as always, Qin Nan could feel a heartache.
“Keep going! Keep going!”
Qin Nan felt like he had an addiction, going into a frenzied state of repeating the same action, as he opened his mouth as wide as he could, and with the fastest speed, grabbed handfuls of pills and shoved them into his mouth, like a hungry tiger enjoying its meal.
Thirty thousand Martial Emperor Pills!
Fifty thousand Martial Emperor Pills!
Seventy thousand Martial Emperor Pills!
When Qin Nan felt his mouth going numb, and his right hand was sore, he had consumed a total of one hundred thousand Martial Emperor Pills.
Every repetition of his series of actions he would consume over a hundred Martial Emperor Pills, which was difficult to devour. One hundred thousand Martial Emperor Pills would be equivalent to repeating the same actions around one hundred times.
“One hundred thousand Martial Emperor Pills, even with one hundred thousand Martial Emperor Pills, the Divine Battle Spirit has yet to level up!”
It was the first time Qin Nan halted his actions, as his face was filled with disappointment and a hint of pain.
That was a total of one hundred thousand Martial Emperor Pills; if exchanged into Xiantian Pills, it would be ten million Xiantian Pills.
Yet the Divine Battle Spirit still hasn’t levelled up despite such a crazy amount of pills being consumed?
“I am eager to see how many pills it would take for the Divine Battle Spirit to be upgraded to the Xuan rank today!” Qin Nan clenched his teeth and wore a hideous expression, like a beast going crazy.
Once again, the same routine took place. His hands were fast like lightning and his mouth like a sinkhole, as he crazily devoured countless Martial Emperor Pills.
One hundred and thirty thousand Martial Emperor Pills!
One hundred and sixty thousand Martial Emperor Pills!
Two hundred thousand Martial Emperor Pills!
The Divine Battle Spirit remained motionless, as Qin Nan continued to devour the pills.
Two hundred and fifty thousand Martial Emperor Pills!
Two hundred and ninety thousand Martial Emperor Pills!
Three hundred and sixty thousand Martial Emperor Pills!
Four hundred thousand Martial Emperor Pills!
When Qin Nan had consumed a total of four hundred and fifty thousand Martial Emperor Pills, the Divine Battle Spirit behind him shuddered violently with a buzz all of a sudden, causing the ten golden rays to turn extremely dazzling, as if it was going to exceed its pervious limit and transform into a powerful presence.
Qin Nan’s heart skipped a beat. From the looks of it, the Divine Battle Spirit was finally transforming into a Xuan-ranked Martial Spirit!
However, after buzzing over a long period, the Divine Battle Spirit returned to a calm state, with no significant change.
“Still haven’t leveled up?”
Qin Nan was stunned, and felt like his heart had just received a great blow, giving him a dull, unpleasant feeling.
That’s a total of four hundred and fifty thousand Martial Emperor Pills being consumed, which is equivalent to forty five million Xiantian Pills, and it still hasn’t leveled up with this many pills?
Previously, when he was upgrading the Divine Battle Spirit from a fifth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirit to a sixth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirit, it only took him one hundred Body Tempering Pills!
The pills he just consumed, was forty five million times of that!
“Last fifty thousand Martial Emperor Pills; this time, I must succeed!”
After a pause, Qin Nan collected his thoughts and exhaled deeply, before his eyes were filled with determination, as he began to grab the pills and shove them into his mouth.
Four hundred and sixty thousand pills!
Four hundred and seventy thousand pills!
Four hundred and ninety thousand pills!
Four hundred and ninety nine thousand, and nine hundred pills!
A layer of cold sweat was formed on Qin Nan’s forehead, as he grabbed the remaining one hundred Martial Emperor Pills with his slightly trembling hand, and clenched his teeth before devouring the remaining one hundred pills into his stomach.
At that instant, the Divine Battle Spirit vibrated vigorously, its golden rays flickered brilliantly, with a rising suppressive aura.
“At last the level up!”
Qin Nan could feel the pressure in his heart being relieved, as his face was filled with a hint of joy.
However, the rare reaction of the Divine Battle Spirit vanished after a long period, as if nothing had happened.
“How… How is this possible?”
Qin Nan was dumbfounded.
Five hundred thousand Martial Emperor Pills, which are equivalent to fifty million Xiantian Pills, are not enough for the Divine Battle Spirit to level up?
Does that mean that this Divine Battle Spirit could not be upgraded to a Xuan-ranked Martial Spirit?
“How could this be… How could this be…” Qin Nan mumbled to himself, with a blank expression, before he recovered from the shock and said, “Impossible, the Divine Battle Spirit is incredibly outstanding. It’s impossible that it could not level up to a Xuan-ranked Martial Spirit. The only explanation is that five hundred thousand Martial Emperor Pills is nowhere near enough for it to level up to a Xuan-ranked Martial Spirit!”
In Qin Nan’s heart, he was totally confident that the Divine Battle Spirit was able to level up to a Xuan-ranked Martial Spirit. Not only that, it could level up to a legendary Tian-ranked Martial Spirit, or even beyond the Tian rank.
The only problem is, even five hundred thousand Martial Emperor Pills are not enough. How many pills does the Divine Battle Spirit actually need to level up to the Xuan rank?
“Although the Divine Battle Spirit is incredibly powerful, the amount of pills it needs to level up is ridiculous.”
A wry smile appeared on Qin Nan’s face.
He could only collect five hundred thousand Martial Emperor Pills by borrowing them from everyone within the Mystic Spirit Sect. Where could he get another five hundred thousand Martial Emperor Pills now?
Although it would not take another fifty hundred thousand Martial Emperor Pills for the Divine Battle Spirit to be upgraded into a Xuan-ranked Martial Spirit, he was now poor as f**k, not even a Martial Emperor Pill could be found on him!
“This isn’t good. I must upgrade the Divine Battle Spirit into a Xuan-ranked Martial Spirit. It has to work this time. I have to find a way to earn some pills.”
Qin Nan collected his thoughts, and frowned as he immersed himself in his thoughts.
After a moment, he could not come up with any plan, as he was not talented in doing business.
The simplest way was to borrow pills from others, for example from Old Shan or Gong Yang, or he could learn from the Tyrannical Five Tigers, robbing Martial Emperor Pills from the disciples of the Mystic Spirit Sect.
However, Qin Nan was not willing to do either.
“Screw it, there’s no need to overthink it. If there’s no other way, I can only borrow from Old Shan, and pay him back when I have the chance.” Qin Nan shook his head, and was about to stand up, before a sudden thought came up to him as he mumbled, “Last time, Ouyang Jun used an act of prodding to persuade me, maybe I should do the same to him too.”
A grin appeared on Qin Nan’s face. He was definitely one who bore grudges. Now with his plan in mind, he definitely would not waste this chance of troubling Ouyang Jun.
...The Inner Domain Peak, the first residence...
Ouyang Jun sat in the leading position, with Leng Feng sitting in front of him.
“Lately, the Honourable Elder had been borrowing pills from the entire sect on behalf of Qin Nan. What is he trying to do?” Leng Feng frowned his eyebrows, “Could it be that he is practicing some terrifying techniques which need the support of a huge amount of pills?”
Although many disciples assumed Leng Feng to be a cruel person, he was extremely cautious in his actions.
It only took them the simple act of prodding to bait Qin Nan into accepting the duel at the Hall of Life and Death, which was very suspicious in Leng Feng’s eyes.
It’s impossible that Qin Nan is this stupid, to dare to challenge him in return after knowing it’s a death sentence. He must have some sort of trump card, giving him the confidence to act so.
Ouyang Jun glimpsed at Leng Feng and said with a faint smile, “What are you worrying about? Who cares if he is borrowing pills from the entire sect? Don’t you worry, I’ve already spoken with the Skills Library Leader. You can come with me and cultivate in the Heaven Room of the Moon Pavilion for the next two months. Within this period, in addition to the support from some mystical herbs, although it’s impossible for you to level up to half-Martial Emperor Realm, it won’t be a problem for you to reach the ninth-layer Xiantian Realm!”
“The Heaven Room of the Moon Pavilion?”
Leng Feng was joyful after hearing this, the worried look on his face completely vanished, as he brought his fists together, “Thanks, Young Master Ou...”
Before he could finish, at that instant, a piercing sound was heard as a sheepskin roll was seen flying at a great speed toward the plaque of the residence.
Ouyang Jun instantly became enraged, as he took off from his seat and grabbed the sheepskin roll in his hand, his eyes filled with a murderous intent.
He had always been treated respectfully due to his identity. Being ranked first among the outer disciples, and the son of the sect leader, no one dared to disrespect him like that.
Even the elders of the sect would come to him in a respectful manner when delivering messages, to prevent themselves from offending him.
Leng Feng was shocked too. It was his first time to witness such a daring person.
“Leng Feng, be prepared to kill someone.” Ouyang Jun withheld his anger and opened the letter with an expressionless face.
He was interested to learn the identity of the ballsy sender.
However, Ouyang Jun was left in place with a blank expression after reading the letter.
The letter wrote:
Ouyang Jun, Leng Feng, to be honest, I’m having a shortage of pills, I hope that you two geniuses are able to support me with some pills. I know that both of you are geniuses, and Ouyang Jun is the son of the sect leader, so you guys are definitely rich. It won’t be a problem for you two to loan me one hundred thousand Martial Emperor Pills. If you can’t even loan me one hundred thousand Martial Emperor Pills, I would be very disappointed. I wouldn’t have expected super geniuses with the names Leng Feng and Ouyang Jun, who is also the son of the sect leader, to be so poor. It would be a pity.
That being said, please don’t worry. I’ll definitely pay you guys back after I earn some pills in the future.
Pill Loaner: Qin Nan.
