Chapter 305 - The Words 'Young Master Qin Nan'
The One-Handed Martial Dominator, the Sly Sword Dominator and the others were startled after hearing the words.
They could easily tell that Qin Nan was stating the truth, because what he had mentioned was nothing extraordinary to begin with.
The Six-Eared Divine Being’s eyes flickered as he snapped, “Stop trying to hide it, it was you trying to avenge yourself because of your hatred toward the Trading Alliance. Tell me, were you the one behind the incident?”
“What incident? I have been inside the residence all along!”
Qin Nan said in a cold tone.
“Stop f**king pretending; you are definitely the culprit!”
The Six-Eared Divine Being went enraged and glared with his eyes open wide.
He had already made up his mind. Even if Qin Nan was not the real culprit, he had to blame the incident on him too.
Otherwise, the Trading Alliance would have to compensate for the tremendous losses that the One-Handed Martial Dominator and the others had suffered!
The white-shirted lady interfered at that instant, “Qin Nan, although you are from the Luohe Kingdom, with the secrets of the Martial Serendipity Pavilion, I would not be surprised if you were capable of executing the plan. Although it’s just my guess, I believe it’s very close to what the truth is.”
The white-shirted lady hesitated for a moment before she continued, “The culprit referred to himself as Mr. Qin, whose cultivation was also half-Martial Emperor Realm, and he was accompanied by two peak Martial Ancestor Realm guards; it’s exactly the same as your situation. Qin Nan, as a man, do you not have the guts to admit your own doing?”
The faces of the One-Handed Martial Dominator and the rest turned unpleasant. They had initially suspected that the Trading Alliance was trying to shirk their responsibility, but after hearing the words, they were doubtful once again.
This Qin Nan was indeed very suspicious, as he possessed all the similarities of Mr. QIn.
Could it be that this Qin Nan was really the culprit behind all this?
“Qin Nan, right? I advise you to be more honest. The Trading Alliance is asking you politely, but I believe the rest of us do not have the same patience!”
The One-Handed Martial Dominator snapped.
“Young man, think twice before you act!”
The Sly Sword Dominator let out a grin.
Both of them possessed their own thoughts. Even if Qin Nan wasn’t the one they were looking for, with these similarities, they would be more than happy to teach Qin Nan a lesson in order to give vent to their anger.
The expressions of the Longhu Ancestor Beast and Princess Miao Miao remained the same despite facing the interrogations of the experts. In fact, their hearts were filled with joy.
So what if you are suspicious?
So what if you think it’s us?
You don’t have any evidence!
Who could prove us to be the culprits?
“Everyone, you must possess some sort of evidence before accusing someone to be guilty. If you guys insist on blaming Qin Nan, please show me the proof!”
At that instant, Jianghuang landed before Qin Nan and his crew and calmly faced the crowd of experts.
A faint quaver could be felt. It appeared that the Weapon Spirit of the entire Jianghuang City was slowly awakening. It would surely be a shocking scene when the it was fully awake.
The Six-Eared Divine Being, the One-Handed Martial Dominator, the Sly Sword Dominator, and the rest were shocked.
If they were in some other place, despite Jianghuang’s marvelous strength, they would not be intimidated with these many experts facing a single opponent. However, the place they were at right now was called Jianghuang City, the City which belonged to Jianghuang!
If Jianghuang were to turn mad, it would cause the entire city to rumble!
“Senior Jianghuang, Qin Nan is the suspect of the incident. If we were to let him go free, it would serve as an unimaginable loss for the Trading Alliance. If you insist on protecting him, the Trading Alliance has no choice but to declare war against Jianghuang City!”
The white-shirted lady said in a cold tone.
She had made up her mind that she must detain Qin Nan at all costs today. Apart from Qin Nan being the suspect of the incident, she felt that the situation in the Luohe Kingdom had slowly gotten out of her control after receiving the intel from her subordinates. Therefore, she felt that it was urgent to capture Qin Nan as soon as possible, to prevent something bad from happening.
The eyes of the One-Handed Martial Dominator and the others glistened.
As expected of the Saintess!
“Jianghuang, do you really want to fight against us all for a mere cultivator?”
The One-Handed Martial Dominator and the Sly Sword Dominator further escalated the situation with their words.
Jianghuang’s eyes glistened; he had not expected the white-shirted lady to be willing to pay such a huge price just to detain Qin Nan. However, he had no plan of giving up, mainly because Qin Nan was the bravest genius he had met in the past ten years. His courage alone was enough to convince him to lend him a hand at all costs.
“Is that so? I don’t care if you are from the Trading Alliance or whatever, no one is allowed to break the rules in Jianghuang City. Otherwise, I shall show no mercy!”
Jianghuang’s voice turned cold as the crowd began to sense an incredible pressure.
The white-shirted lady was startled.
The others reacted the same way too.
This Jianghuang was willing to protect Qin Nan at all costs?
The white-shirted lady took a deep breath. She was only trying to scare Jianghuang with her previous words. Despite the influence that the Trading Alliance currently possessed in the lower district, the Trading Alliance stood no chance against Jianghuang, not to mention defeating Jianghuang with her power alone. Furthermore, she did not even have the right to withdraw the Trading Alliance from Jianghuang City.
“What should I do? Do I seriously have to let Qin Nan go again?”
The white-shirted lady quickly thought.
However, in the midst of the stiff atmosphere, a powerful aura could be felt approaching them from afar.
Before the person arrived, a calm voice could be heard, “Hehe, such a crowd over here. It’s been a long time since I last saw something this interesting in Jianghuang City. What’s going on over here?”
Upon hearing the voice, a hint of joy could be seen on the faces of the Six-Eared Divine Being, the One-Handed Martial Dominator, and the Sly Sword Dominator.
The person arriving was none other than Fang Jian!
Who was Fang Jian?
The envoy of the Qinglong Sacred Area, who had obtained the favor of a Peak Leader, granting him a chance of achieving the Martial Highness Realm, resulting in a possible great future ahead of him!
Although Jianghuang was powerful, now that Fang Jian had arrived, did Jianghuang still have the guts to protect Qin Nan?
There is no way he would offend these many people for the sake of a half-Martial Emperor Realm cultivator!
A figure suddenly appeared before the crowd, who turned out to be a middle-aged man wearing a calm expression.
The crowd’s attention was immediately attracted by the stranger, especially the Longhu Ancestor Beast, Princess Miao Miao, and Qin Nan who were stunned after seeing the middle-aged man.
The One-Handed Martial Dominator immediately went up with a joyful expression, who pointed at Jianghuang with his finger and said, “You’ve missed out on a lot recently; Do you remember the treasures we were aiming for? I managed to acquire them after spending one million three hundred thousand Arcane Realm Stones, but they all exploded! The suspect is right here, but when we were trying to detain him, Jianghuang insisted on protecting him!”
“That’s right! The One-Handed Martial Dominator is speaking the truth!” The Six-Eared Divine Being immediately followed.
“Senior Fang, Jianghuang has gone too far this time. You came at the right time, please do justice for us!” The Saintess said with a pleasant voice.
“That’s right, I agree too.”
“Envoy Fang, that’s exactly what happened!”
“Jianghuang has definitely crossed the line this time!”
Peng Yu, the owner of Qingxin Inn, and the other authorities blurted out.
They were absolutely sure that as long as Fang Jian was on their side, even Jianghuang would have no choice but to back off.
Fang Jian’s expression turned dull.
He had specifically planned to acquire those weapons to use them as a gift for the Young Master once he had joined the Qinglong Sacred Area.
And they’ve all exploded?
Forget about the explosion, but this Jianghuang dares to protect the suspect?
Following this, a sense of anger rose within Fang Jian’s heart. It was his first time to be furious after he had received the promotion to his status, as he glared at Jianghuang with a pair of raging eyes.
However, before Fang Jian unleashed his anger, he spoke in a seemingly calm tone, “Jianghuang, is that true?”
Jianghuang’s expression turned pale.
With his status and background, he was not afraid of Fang Jian joining forces with the Trading Alliance.
However, Fang Jian was the envoy whom that respected person was fond of. If he were to offend Fang Jian here, resulting in him talking bad in front of that respected person, the consequences would be disastrous to him.
What should I do now?
Do I really have no choice but to hand Qin Nan over?
“Jianghuang, I don’t care what you think. Where is the suspect? I’ll personally interrogate him!” Fang Jian snapped.
“He is the suspect, the guy with the half-Martial Emperor Realm cultivation!” The Six-Eared Divine Being yelled while pointing his finger at Qin Nan.
“Hmm? Half-Martial Emperor Realm?” Fang Jian was slightly startled, as he lowered his head and gazed at the suspect.
When he first arrived, he only took note of Jianghuang and the others, and completely ignored the presence of the people below him. However, when his gaze met Qin Nan’s eyes, his pupils rapidly contracted.
“This ain’t good!”
Jianghuang’s expression turned pale as he immediately placed his body in front of Qin Nan.
The Six-Eared Divine Being, Peng Yu, the owner of Qingxin Inn, and the others wore cold grins on their faces. Oh Qin Nan, how are you going to escape this time?
The eyes of the white-shirted lady flickered as she mumbled to herself, “Qin Nan, I’ve already told you; you will never escape from my grasp…”
Before she could finish her sentence.
Before Jianghuang could react.
Before the grins on the faces of the crowd dissipated.
After a slight hesitation, Fang Jian immediately collected his thoughts and rapidly descended onto the ground. He brought his fists together in a respectful manner and said, “Young Master Qin Nan, it’s been a long time!”
A single sentence served as a clap of thunder!
