Chapter 247 - The Envoy of the Sacred Area
Qin Nan felt even more suspicious toward the aim behind this birthday feast. Why would Ouyang Ba hold such a grand feast celebrating his fortieth birthday after he just failed his level up to the Martial Dominator Realm?
“Who cares, everything will become clear when the time comes!”
Qin Nan shook his head. His focus now was to join the Qinglong Sacred Area.
“Senior, thanks for your help!”
Qin Nan sincerely bowed to the Qi Dragon, before leaving the mountain and heading straight to the feast.
At that instant, the White Jade Dojo was fully crowded. Apart from the geniuses of the Mystic Spirit Sect, there were also geniuses from the other sects, but a lesser amount.
As Qin Nan arrived, he soon became the limelight of the crowd.
“Senior Brother Qin Nan!”
“Ah, Senior Brother Qin Nan, you’re finally here. I’ve been waiting for you for a long time!”
“Wow, Senior Brother Qin Nan, I’ve been admiring you too!”
“Junior Brother Qin Nan, do you want to join our table? A few Senior Brothers here would like to have a chat with you!”
“So this is Qin Nan? Tsk, tsk, he looks so cool!”
Be it the outer disciples, the inner disciples, or the geniuses from the other sects, they all welcomed him with warm hands.
After all, apart from his cultivation and Martial Spirit, Qin Nan could currently be considered the first rank!
Why is that so?
That’s because he has three Martial Ancestor Realm experts supporting him!
“Qin Nan, it’s been a while.” At that instant, a dark voice could be heard.
Qin Nan turned his head around and surprisingly found the person speaking to be Ouyang Jun.
Currently, Ouyang Jun no longer wore the previous conceited expression, but a totally cold expression, like a poisonous snake hiding in the dark, causing people to feel uncomfortable after seeing him.
Behind Ouyang Jun stood Xiao Qingxue. When Qin Nan looked at her, her gaze met his too, but only for a quick moment.
“It’s been a while indeed.” Qin Nan gave him a glimpse. The last time they had met was when he visited Li Hong’s residence. Since then, he had been dealing with the members of Jun Alliance instead.
“I’m telling you; you will definitely pay for what you have done to me!” It was as if a sudden thought came up to Ouyang Jun’s mind, causing him to let out a sinister smile before leaving.
Qin Nan’s eyes turned cold, and was about to become angry when a shout was heard.
“Qin Nan, over here!”
Xiao Leng and the rest immediately waved their hands as if they had just found their savior.
The reason being that they had ended up bumping into Princess Miao Miao and the Longhu Ancestor Beast on their way to the feast, hence they all were now sitting together.
Qin Nan nodded his head and brought his fists together at the rest of the crowd, “Sorry, I’ve got a seat reserved for me.”
The disciples could feel their hearts racing when they saw Qin Nan bumping into Ouyang Jun. They finally collected their thoughts after hearing Qin Nan’s words, and nodded their heads without showing any sign of being mad. Some of them even went up and guided Qin Nan to his seat.
As soon as Qin Nan arrived, Princess Miao Miao said with a flushed face and glistening eyes, “Little Nan, come over here. The ‘Blue Icy Mountain’ here is extremely delicious…”
“It’s Icy Blue Mountain.” The Longhu Ancestor Beast had now taken the form of a human, with two symbolic lumps on his forehead. His handsome face was now reddened due to the alcohol.
“Shut up!” Princess Miao Miao lashed out a slap and pouted, “It’s Blue Icy Mountain! Blue Icy Mountain!”
“Yes yes yes… Let’s continue drinking!” The Longhu Ancestor Beast was awakened by the slap, who immediately let out an obsequious smile and filled the cups with wine, before they continued enjoying the drinks.
Qin Nan was kind of speechless. This Icy Blue Mountain was a mystical wine specifically prepared for the feast, extremely valuable, with a fascinating taste. One could experience the icy chill of a glacier while drinking it. However, he had not expected Princess Miao Miao and the Longhu Ancestor Beast to be interested in drinking.
He finally realized why Xiao Leng and the others were wearing helpless expressions.
Qin Nan took a jar of the Icy Blue Mountain and asked, “Where is big brother Gong Yang?”
“Not sure, I was told a few days ago that someone named ‘Lin’ was looking for him, thus he left the sect.” Xiao Leng immediately answered.
Qin Nan’s wrist slightly trembled.
Isn’t Lin the Symbolic Word Lin?
Could it be that the Nine Symbolic Words have chosen Gong Yang as their successor?
“It seems like Gong Yang’s chance is here.” Qin Nan mumbled to himself.
At that instant, a rare occurrence took place. A terrifying aura could be felt coming from the sky from afar.
Even at a distance of hundreds of miles away, the aura was incredibly powerful.
Everyone was utterly stunned.
Shoosh! Shoosh! Shoosh!
A few gusts of wind could be heard, with Ouyang Ba in the leading position, followed by Old Shan. Behind them were the three Sect Leaders, the Hall Leaders, the authorities, and the top geniuses of the top four sects who all appeared at the entrance of the Sect Leader’s Hall, resulting in a magnificent scene.
Ouyang Ba, the Sect Leaders, the Hall Leaders, and the authorities all brought their fists together and said in a respectful tone.
The disciples stared with their eyes open wide. With such a grand welcome, what kind of envoy is arriving?
Qin Nan was startled as he immediately raised his head and glanced toward the terrifying aura.
Following a loud explosion, the aura which was initially a hundred miles away suddenly appeared at the entrance of the Mystic Spirit Sect as if it had teleported. The terrifying aura then crushed downward on the White Jade Dojo like a huge mountain.
BANG! BANG! BANG!
The entire White Jade Dojo was drowned in a brilliant radiance, emitting a succession of explosions as the runes were being shattered by the aura.
AH! AH! AH!
Following it, cries of agony were heard. Over fifty people among the genius disciples on the White Jade Dojo spurted blood and were sent flying due to the shockwave.
As for the disciples possessing stronger cultivation, even the faces of the inner disciples turned extremely pale due to the discomfort.
Qin Nan’s expression slightly changed. It was as if his blood was solidifying and his meridians were going to explode.
However, the aura was incomparable with the suppression from the left eye of the Divine God of Battle. Apart from his flesh being minorly affected, he was perfectly unharmed.
The eyes of Princess Miao Miao and the Longhu Ancestor Beast glistened upon seeing this.
Qin Nan gave them both a glance, before adjusting his breathing and immediately raising his head to look at the stranger.
He could see a middle-aged man in his fifties wearing a blue attire, his face showing a hint of pride. His eyes never looked at the disciples at the White Jade Dojo, as if they were merely insignificant ants before him!
Qin Nan did not execute his Eyes of the Divine Battle Spirit. It was obvious that this envoy of the Qinglong Sacred Area was a Martial Dominator expert!
Only a Martial Dominator would possess such a terrifying aura!
“So this is the sect where the Imperial Exterminator was.” The middle-aged man let out a sigh, “The Imperial Exterminator was such a powerful cultivator, capable of roaming across the lower district at will. In contrast, his sect is so hopeless, with no sign of worthy talents, what a pity, what a pity…”
Many of the Hall Leaders and elders of the Mystic Spirit Sect were stunned hearing this, whose eyes were filled with fear after a thought came up to their minds.
Ouyang Ba and the other Sect Leaders slightly nodded their heads.
A long time ago, when the Imperial Exterminator had appeared, the entire lower district was immersed in a chaos. Countless geniuses from the two Sacred Areas were slain by him.
To an extent, there was a saying in the lower district during that period. When a pitch-black saber landed from the sky, even if it meant forfeiting your limbs or sacrificing everything, you must stay fifty miles away from the pitch-black saber.
This was because the pitch-black saber was the Imperial Exterminator’s saber. When he appeared, either friend or foe, no one within fifty miles from him had a chance of staying alive!
“Sir, since the Imperial Exterminator had been missing for a long time, and is most likely dead by now, let’s not mention him anymore. As it is my birthday today, why not come into the Sect Leader’s Hall, have a taste of the ‘Blue Bloody River’ while watching a duel between the geniuses?” Ouyang Ba calmly said with a smile.
“Blue Bloody River?” The eyes of the middle-aged envoy glistened, “Mr. Ouyang, you do realize the duel between the geniuses won’t be interesting enough. However, the specifically prepared Blue Bloody River would be plenty. Hehe, not bad!”
After saying this, the middle-aged envoy immediately entered the Sect Leader’s Hall, with no intention of staying any longer.
The other Sect Leaders immediately followed him into the hall.
As soon as Ouyang Ba entered the Sect Leader’s Hall, his movements came to a stop, and he said without turning his head around, “Qin Nan, come to the Sect Leader’s Hall!”
