Chapter 257 - A Shameless Challenge to a Life and Death Duel
No one had expected Ouyang Jun to interfere at that instant.
The crowd of disciples wore different expressions on their faces. They could roughly guess that the reason Ouyang Jun had attacked Qin Nan was because his Jun Alliance had been totally crushed by him, which caused his reputation to drop tremendously. Hence, it was reasonable for Ouyang Jun to be filled with hatred toward Qin Nan.
However, Xiao Qingxue currently wore a blank expression, not knowing how to react to the series of events which she had witnessed.
She was clear that she herself was most likely the main reason behind the conflict between Qin Nan and Ouyang Jun. However, the situation had long surpassed her capabilities. As the ‘top beauty of the Mystic Spirit Sect’, her presence now seemed to be quite petty.
“You have something to say?”
Princess Miao Miao was totally speechless at how shameless these people were.
The envoy of the Qinglong Sacred Area treated the situation with an indifferent attitude. Ouyang Ba apologized without showing any sign of repentance. Even Ouyang Jun dared to cause more trouble despite what he had already done.
Are these people really that clueless?
Do they seriously think a Martial Dominator has the capability to crush everything?
“Princess, calm down first.” Old Shan said with an expressionless face, “I would like to hear what he is planning to say.”
Princess Miao Miao and the Longhu Ancestor Beast both wore a cold expression without saying anything.
Meanwhile, the Sect Leaders, the Hall Leaders and the elders inside the Sect Leader’s Hall, and the remaining disciples all had their attention focused on Ouyang Jun.
Ouyang Jun turned excited after being aware of the crowd’s gaze. Since Qin Nan had returned to the sect, he had lost his place of being the limelight of the disciples. However, as he glanced toward Qin Nan who was trying to recover from his injury, his face instantly turned dark and he said, “Qin Nan, since this conflict is mainly between you and I, let’s settle it at once!”
Qin Nan slowly opened his eyes and exhaled deeply. He had managed to minorly heal his body over this period, mainly because Princess Miao Miao’s true form was a magical elixir, and the purple drop of blood she gave contained a faint stream of her Primary Force.
The crowd glanced toward Qin Nan, and to their surprise, they could see a calm expression on his face, with no sign of murderous intent, as if he was not furious regarding the incident that had taken place, which caused the crowd to feel slightly confused.
Ouyang Jun took a step forward and raised his head as he yelled, “Our conflict goes way back, which provoked me to attack you! However, it would not result in a great influence if the seniors ended up fighting against each other because of it. Therefore, I will limit my cultivation to the half-Martial Emperor Realm, and challenge you to a duel!”
Challenge to a duel?
Ouyang Jun is challenging Qin Nan to a duel?
The crowd of disciples, the Sect Leaders, and the authorities were utterly stunned.
Now that Qin Nan was severely injured, despite his outstanding strength, it was most likely that he could not even exert three tenths of his force.
Isn’t it obvious that Ouyang Jun is trying to take advantage of Qin Nan’s injury to eliminate him?
However, what they did not know was that despite the venomous personality of Ouyang Jun, he was still capable of utilizing the tide of a situation. Previously, he was aware that his father and the envoy of the Qinglong Sacred Area had already planned to cooperate in order to deal with Old Shan and his companions.
The envoy of the Qinglong Sacred Area was a Martial Dominator Realm expert. Defeating Princess Miao Miao and her crew was too easy a task for him.
Therefore, he came up with an evil plan in his mind, which was to challenge Qin Nan to a duel to eliminate him. Even if the worst were to happen, there was no need for him to be scared since he had such reliable support.
“This Ouyang Jun…”
The faces of Cao Fan, Li Qingyu, and Yang Yiming were filled with a hint of anger.
As for Xiao Qingxue, her expression gradually changed between pain and self-condemnation, Not that it matters much right?
The Longhu Ancestor Beast cursed as his body trembled due to the anger.
Although he self-acknowledged to be a shameless being, he did not expect Ouyang Jun to be such a ridiculous person, having the guts to challenge someone who was seriously injured to a duel.
Could he be any more shameless?
“It seems like there is no way to handle this peacefully.”
Princess Miao Miao expression returned to calm, but a growing tempestuous aura could be felt from her.
Ouyang Jun ignored the reaction of the two Martial Ancestor Realm experts with an indifferent attitude, whose eyes were locked onto Qin Nan’s figure, as he said with a conceited expression, “What is it Qin Nan, are you too scared to accept the challenge? Aren’t you the top-ranked outer disciple? Aren’t you one who has never lowered your head? Let me tell you, I am the one in charge of sending members of the Jun Alliance to trouble you, and the one who sneak attacked you just then. Don’t you feel like killing me? If you do, then accept my challenge!”
Ouyang Jun raised his tone toward the end of his speech, which almost felt like a raging scream.
However, before he could continue speaking, a terrifying aura could be felt coming from above. Everyone could only see the Longhu Ancestor Beast flying toward Ouyang Jun at a great speed, his bloody mouth opened wide, as if he was going to devour this shameless prick straight away.
The eyes of the envoy of the Qinglong Sacred Area and Ouyang Ba turned icy.
At that instant, a yell was heard.
“Longhu, stop it!”
The one speaking was none other than Qin Nan.
“Qin Nan, you…” The Longhu Ancestor Beast hesitated for a moment, and was about to say something when he noticed Princess Miao Miao shaking her head at him. He then let out a harrumph at the envoy of the Qinglong Sacred Area and Ouyang Ba before withdrawing to his previous place.
At that instant, Qin Nan’s expression remained calm as always.
However, everyone could tell that his body was encapsulated within a raging aura.
Qin Nan was utterly furious.
While he was merging his Martial Emperor Core, he was being ambushed by this son of a bitch in such a crucial timing, causing him to fail his breakthrough. This fact alone was enough for Qin Nan to kill him, not to mention the troubles he had caused him previously.
However, before he could say anything, this Ouyang Jun dared to voice out and challenge him to a duel.
Am I someone to be bullied so easily?
Does my injury mean I can allow someone to bully me like that?
“I accept your challenge!” Qin Nan’s eyes turned cold as he spoke, “But on one condition: this will be a duel of life and death!”
A duel of life and death!
The few words astounded the entire crowd.
This Qin Nan plans to have a duel of life and death with Ouyang Jun?
Is this Qin Nan that confident in defeating Ouyang Jun, despite his severe injury?
“A duel of life and death?” Ouyang Jun was startled, before he burst out laughing, “HAHAHA, sure, sure, I’ve always wanted to have a duel of life and death with you, but I did not expect you to suggest it yourself! Since you took the initiative to do so, I’ll be more than happy to harvest your life!”
“Is that so?”
Qin Nan slowly rose from the ground as an imperious aura was emitted from his body.
At that instant, a sudden shout was heard, “Hold on!”
