Chapter 230 - In the Name of the Divine God of Battle
The crowd was left speechless on the spot, wearing blank expressions on their faces.
No one could have expected this Zhou Guili to swiftly declare Xiao Leng, Chu Yun, and the rest to bear the accusations of betraying the sect!
How significant was it, when one was accused of betraying the sect?
It didn’t matter which sect you are in. As long as you betrayed your sect, you would be hunted down by the entire sect!
This Zhou Guili planned to leave no options for Xiao Leng, Chu Yun, and the rest, except for death alone.
Gong Yang, Xiao Leng, Chu Yun, and the others began to tremble.
Betraying the sect?
What an absolute joke!
Zhang Qian burst out laughing after seeing this, and then glanced at Qin Nan and said, “Qin Nan, do you see it now; even if you left the sect, the Jun Alliance has countless ways of troubling your friends, with no exceptions! Do remember that they will all suffer because of you!”
Qin Nan squinted his eyes, which were engulfed in flames of anger, as if they were going to explode at any second.
“Qin Nan, it’s fine, don’t listen to his bullshit…”
Gong Yang, Xiao Leng, Chu Yun, and the rest swiftly recovered with looks of determination.
They were clear on the fact that Zhang Qian and Zhou Guili were trying to blackmail Qin Nan!
Before they could finish their words, Zhou Guili uttered a yell, “Peng Yu, now that the betrayers of the sect are here, what are you waiting for? Have them all detained at once!”
Peng Yu reacted swiftly, and approached Xiao Leng, Chu Yun, and the rest while emitting an eighth-layer Xiantian Realm aura.
“Not on my watch!”
Gong Yang’s expression turned furious.
“Gong Yang, I will be your opponent. I would like to see if your strength has improved since the last time we met!” Zhang Qian’s tiny eyes seemed to be emitting sinister rays of light, and he gathered his aura as if a battle would break out any time now.
The crowd of elders and disciples halted their breathing, not willing to miss out on any detail of the upcoming battle.
However, at that instant, a thunderous laugh filled the entire Inner Domain Peak, “HAHAHAHAHAHA!”
Everyone was startled, and Zhang Qian, Zhou Guili, Gong Yang, and the others could not help but glance toward the source of the laugh.
The one uttering the laugh turned out to be none other than Qin Nan.
“Qin Nan, what are you laughing at?” Zhang Qian’s expression turned dull. Is this Qin Nan still unwilling to obey his demands, despite what was going to happen? Could it be that the rumors are inaccurate, that this Qin Nan actually does not care about his friends at all?
“Are you asking me why I’m laughing?” Qin Nan did not withdraw his smile. Instead, it was replaced with a grin, “I am laughing at myself, I’m feeling proud of myself because I have such an honorable group of friends! At the same time, I’m laughing at my own stupidity, as it took me such a long time to realize something so important!”
When the left eye of the Divine God of Battle appeared, Qin Nan learned something. He realized that everything which he had done for his friends was worth it.
However, facing the requests from Gong Yang and the rest, facing the order from Old Shan, his will was slightly shaken.
He was indeed a fearless person. For him, it did not matter if the Sect Leader of the Mystic Spirit Sect succeeded in becoming a Martial Dominator. His only concern was to fight until the very end as long as there were enemies before him. He would fight until his very last breath, and would never lower his head or bend over!
The Divine God of Battle would never back off!
However, when his friends are asking him to leave, what should he do?
Did he follow his will and the desire deep within his soul to battle until the very end, or did he forfeit the pride in his bones for the sake of his friends?
Qin Nan hesitated and struggled. His mind had been in a confused state, and he could not come up with a decision.
As such, when Zhang Qian, Peng Yu, and Zhou Guili showed themselves, he had remained silent at the side, while watching the conflict occur between them and Gong Yang.
However, when he witnessed Zhou Guili, the son of the Disciplinary Hall Leader, declaring Xiao Leng and the rest guilty, and Zhang Qian challenging Gong Yang to a battle, he instantly came to a realization!
Gong Yang, Xiao Leng, Chu Yun, Huang Long, Mo Zishan, and Xu You all came here in the first place and begged him to leave as they were worried about his safety!
For his sake, Old Shan was forced to erase his identity as a disciple and ordered him to leave!
If he were to follow their requests and leave in the end just like that, what would that make him?
Just like what Zhang Qian had said, if he were to forfeit the pride of the Divine God of Battle and leave the sect, not only would he hurt himself and the Divine Battle Spirit, but he would also bring great disaster to his friends too!
If he left, Gong Yang, Xiao Leng, Chu Yun, and the others who were still at the Mystic Spirit Sect would definitely become targets of the Jun Alliance!
Even if they all left the Mystic Spirit Sect, they still had no chance of escaping from being hunted down by the Mystic Spirit Sect!
If that was the case, why not just stay and persevere through the approaching danger!
By persevering through situations of life and death together, they would be considered true friends, true brothers!
“The Sect Leader of the Mystic Spirit Sect is now in the midst of his leveling up, which serves as an indication that a great storm is approaching, causing the Jun Alliance to behave recklessly. If the Sect Leader were to succeed in becoming a Martial Dominator, it would be impossible for not only OId Shan to survive, but Gong Yang and the rest too!”
“My Divine Battle Spirit wages war against the heavens and battles against earth. There is none He does not fight and none He does not win against! If that’s the case, it’s my responsibility to hold on to my sabers and fight all the way out, slaying all the enemies in my way! I shall eliminate all who dare to harm my friends!”
At that instant, Qin Nan was cleared of his doubts.
He then glanced at Gong Yang and the others. It was as if they could detect his change, as they all raised their heads and glanced back at him.
“I would like to apologize, as I will be going against your wills this time! Even if there is a storm coming, or the world is shattering, I will never leave you guys. I’ve got a pair of legs, and so do you. I’ve got weapons in my hand, and so do you!”
“If I’m leaving, you are too!”
“If you are staying and resisting, then I shall join too!”
Qin Nan stared at them with a serious look and a pair of clear eyes, with a glint of determination which was never seen before.
Gong Yang and the others felt their hearts shudder, and a tingling sensation in their noses. Even though Qin Nan had gone against their wills, they felt touched and had an urge to cry.
Zhang Qian and the rest were confused upon seeing this, and he immediately snapped, “What the hell are you on about? Qin Nan, either you hand over your possessions, or your friends will bear the punishments of your s...”
He had yet to say the word ‘sins’.
Under the gazes of Zhang Qian, Peng Yu, Zhou Guili, and over twenty geniuses...
Under the gazes of the disciples and elders of the inner domain, the disciples and elders of the outer domain, a total of six hundred people...
Qin Nan’s har began to dance wildly, as an endless stream of Battle Intent was emitted from his body together with his roar, “Jun Alliance pricks, you guys have been picking on me continuously, and even abuse your powers to harm my friends! Today, in the name of the Divine God of Battle, I swear I will kill you all with the saber in my hand, even if my Qi is depleted, even if my body is shattered!”
At that instant, it was as if the entire Mystic Spirit Sect had begun to tremble, as if a gigantic peerless dragon at the bottom of the ocean had been awakened after many years, who opened its eyes, causing countless living things to launch themselves into the air, as the dragon rose from the ocean and uttered a roar, shaking the Heavens and Earth!
