Chapter 182 - The Calm Before The Storm
As Qin Nan went into seclusion, Ouyang Jun led Leng Feng to the Moon Pavilion, and entered the Heaven Room of the Moon Pavilion.
The entire Mystic Spirit Sect was shaken upon seeing this.
“Ouyang Jun is going all out this time, he even let Leng Feng enter the Heaven Room!”
“Wow, it seems like Ouyang Jun is trying to make sure that Qin Nan dies in the Hall of Life and Death this time.”
“With the help from Leng Feng’s tenth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirit, together with the aid of the Heaven Room, he definitely has a chance of reaching the ninth-layer Xiantian Realm!”
Many elders and disciples could not help but utter a sigh while feeling sorry for Qin Nan.
In their opinions, it seemed like there was no doubt that Qin Nan would lose in the upcoming duel.
Not only was the Qi inside the Heaven Room of the Moon Pavilion ten times richer than the outer world, there were also the Dawn Blossoms Dew, the Ancient Zen Incense, the Labyrinthic Stars Stone, etc.—rare items capable of improving one’s comprehension and cultivation.
It was said that cultivating for a day in the Heaven Room of the Moon Pavilion was equivalent to cultivating for three seasons. Therefore, it was obvious how outstanding the Heaven Room of the Moon Pavilion was.
Time gradually passed, and after half a month’s time, news regarding the duel between Qin Nan and Leng Feng was spread to the other three sects.
Normally, this kind of news was not significant enough to attract the attention of the other three sects.
But who was this Qin Nan?
Ignoring his great talent, the fact that he held the secrets of the Martial Serendipity Pavilion alone was enough for the three sects to treat him seriously.
Therefore, the entire three sects turned lively.
...The Flying Sword Sect...
“HAHAHA, Qin Nan is such a dumb pig, so full of himself to have the guts to challenge Leng Feng, who is five layers stronger than him.”
“Hehe, I initially thought that he was a worthy opponent. It seems like he is going to face destruction soon.
...The Disordered Flames Sect...
“Wow, this Qin Nan is so smug that he no longer has any sense of rational thinking!”
“I’m not sure where he got his confidence from, but I have a feeling that this Qin Nan is not a simple-minded person.”
...The Qing Nu Sect...
“What? Why would Senior Brother Qin Nan do such a thing?”
“Disappointing, so disappointing. I assumed him to be the prince of destiny in my life, but he will soon turn into a pile of bones.”
“Sigh, why would he do that!”
The disciples of the other three sects were utterly disappointed with Qin Nan, expressing their mocking comments.
As for the elders and the authorities of these three sects, there was no doubt that they all saw Qin Nan as a dead man now, however, they were more concerned with the clash of power taking place behind the duel.
Ouyang Jun was the son of the Sect Leader, while Qin Nan was the disciple of both the Great Elder and the Honourable Elder. Does the conflict between them two signify the unpleasant relationship between the Sect Leader of the Mystic Spirit Sect and its Great Elder and Honourable Elder, just like the rumors?
Or could it be that this duel was set up to trick the other three sects?
The authorities of the other three sects began to ponder upon the truth, trying their best to obtain more information through all sorts of plans and methods.
While the outer world was filled with rumors, meanwhile at the third residence...
Qin Nan had no interest in the events taking place outside for the past half a month’s time, as he crazily immersed himself in cultivation.
“Atavistic Spiritual Liquid!”
Qin Nan’s eyes open wide, as he began to refine another ten drops of the Atavistic Spiritual Liquid which he had just consumed.
This was his third time consuming the Atavistic Spiritual Liquid in the past half a month’s time.
With a loud thump, the aura within Qin Nan’s body went into a frenzied state like the awakening of a beast.
At that instant, Qin Nan’s cultivation had finally reached the fourth-layer Xiantian Realm!
“There is still a great distance from matching Leng Feng’s strength, I should continue cultivating.” Qin Nan did not stop for a rest, but closed his eyes once again while controlling the Divine Battle Spirit to rapidly absorb the Qi around him, resulting in a series of clashes from the collisions of wind and thunder.
The Atavistic Spiritual Liquid continued to be consumed at the same time.
Time swiftly passed in the midst of cultivation, as another half a month’s time was gone in the blink of the eye.
As the Divine Battle Spirit had now accumulated a huge amount of Qi, it felt like the aura in Qin Nan’s body had reached the point of a threshold, as collisions of Qi occurred in his body, trying to exceed the limit.
Once again, in this second half of the month, Qin Nan had consumed thirty drops of Atavistic Spiritual Liquid.
All of a sudden, Qin Nan’s face and body reddened as if his entire figure was engulfed in flames.
Every pore on Qin Nan’s body was forced open, emitting a continuous stream of boiling air toward the surroundings.
The temperature of the residence rapidly increased.
At last, after the period it took for an incense to burn, Qin Nan shuddered violently, as the hot air emitted from his body began to flow in reverse into his body.
When the air was completely absorbed by his body, Qin Nan opened his eyes, as a powerful aura was emitted from his body.
The aura belonged to the fifth-layer Xiantian Realm!
“As expected of a Xuan-ranked Martial Spirit, the Atavistic Spiritual Liquid, and Atavistic Cultivation. These three combined allowed my cultivation to rise from the second-layer Xiantian Realm to the fifth-layer Xiantian Realm in just a month!”
Qin Nan exhaled a deep breath with a pair of bright eyes. A faint smile could be seen on his face.
He still had fifty drops of Atavistic Spiritual Liquid left, and together with his Xuan-ranked Martial Spirit and the speed of cultivation of Atavistic Cultivation, he would surely reach the eighth-layer Xiantian Realm in the remaining month.
With a cultivation of eighth-layer Xiantian Realm, there was With a cultivation of the eighth-layer Xiantian Realm, Qin Nan would not need to worry about the duel against Leng Feng.
“Let’s start cultivating!”
Qin Nan calmed his thoughts and closed his eyes as he prepared to cultivate.
At that instant, a surprising event took place, as a familiar voice could be heard coming from outside of the third residence, “Qin Nan, open the door, it’s me.”
Qin Nan was startled.
The owner of the voice was none other than Xiao Qingxue!
