Chapter 309 - The Tribulation of Three Lifetimes
“I don’t have the right?”
Qin Nan was stunned for a moment, before he suddenly burst out laughing.
If this were to happen long before, the words would surely have been a huge impact to Qin Nan’s state of mind.
However, since he had obtained the left eye of the Divine God of Battle, his state of mind was totally different now.
“Judging from this copper mirror, it’s highly possible that you used to be an extremely powerful presence. Perhaps in your eyes, only my Martial Spirit is worthy to speak to you, and I don’t have the right to do so.”
“The question is, so what?”
“Your voice seems to be weak, and despite your formidable background, instead of leaving, you chose to stay with me, so I believe I’ve got something that you are seeking for, am I right?”
A cold grin appeared on Qin Nan’s face.
The voice from the copper mirror showed no hesitation, as it said in an honest tone, “You are correct. You are very intelligent, but that alone still does not give you the right.”
“Perhaps that’s what you think, but I am the owner of the Divine Battle Spirit. Who do you think you are, to have the right to judge my authority?”
Qin Nan’s left eye emitted a golden glow.
Although his flesh was only that of a mere human, but a human like him was also the owner of the Divine Battle Spirit!
Surprisingly, the copper mirror fell silent.
“I have no intention to waste my time talking nonsense here.” Qin Nan’s eyes coldly flickered as he said, “What on Earth are you, and why are you so familiar with my business? You better be honest and tell me the truth. Otherwise, I swear you will never get what you are seeking for!”
The green glow of the copper mirror shone brightly, as the icy female voice could be heard as if it had traveled across an endless void, “There’s no point in revealing my background to you for now, and you don’t need to worry about me exposing your secrets. I can cooperate with you, and refine this copper mirror into a treasure for you. I’ll also answer your doubts, but in return, you shall give me some benefits.”
Qin Nan frowned upon hearing this.
This copper mirror was surely something extraordinary if it knew about the presence of the Divine Battle Spirit.
Furthermore, he was now in a tight situation as there must be a certain reason preventing the Divine Battle Spirit from leveling up. There was no guarantee that he would be able to figure out the reason in a short period.
Upon having this thought, Qin Nan could not help but felt a slight headache. He had previously ended up discovering an ancient ginseng that turned out to be Princess Miao Miao, and now what had he managed to find this time?
“What kind of benefits are you looking for?” Qin Nan calmed his thoughts and asked.
“Chaos Qi.” The female voice answered. “Five streams of Chaos Qi, and I’ll answer one question.”
Her voice was cold as always, filled with an unassailable tone, as if she would cancel the cooperation if Qin Nan chose not to agree with the terms.
“Five streams of Chaos Qi?”
Qin Nan’s eyes flickered.
It seemed like the secrets behind the Chaos Qi was greater than what he had expected. Not only was it able to expand his Divine Sense and repair magical weapons, it also possessed some sort of unknown powers.
Currently, he still possessed one hundred and eight streams of Chaos Qi inside his body. If he were to spend five streams of Chaos Qi to obtain the answer he was seeking for, it would serve as a great trade.
Qin Nan agreed after a slight ponder.
The green glow of the copper mirror shuddered violently, which penetrated Qin Nan’s mind in a bizarre way. After Qin Nan collected his thoughts, he could see the copper mirror floating on top of his Divine Sense, with a ray of green light connecting to his Divine Sense, as if it had merged into one with Qin Nan.
That being said, Qin Nan could easily tell that he was unable to control the copper mirror, and the copper mirror could not cause any side effects to him.
“I’ll ask a question first; why is my Divine Battle Spirit stuck at the tenth-grade Xuan rank, and is unable to level up despite consuming that many pills?”
Qin Nan took a deep breath and asked at a slow pace.
“That’s simple.” The cold voice appeared from the copper mirror, “There exists an innate difference between a tenth-grade Xuan ranked Martial Spirit and a Di ranked Martial Spirit. For example, your cultivation is now at the half-Martial Emperor Realm, but once you reach the Martial Emperor Realm by forming your Inner Core, you are no longer an ordinary human, but would be considered a true cultivator. There is only one way to upgrade the Divine Battle Spirit—find what it needs.”
It was as if a spark had been ignited in Qin Nan’s mind.
What she said was absolutely right!
He was no longer the same person as before, and his Divine Battle Spirit too had evolved into a greater presence—a tenth-grade Xuan ranked Martial Spirit, only a step away from becoming a Di ranked Martial Spirit—which would result in a tremendous change.
In order for this change to occur, the Divine Battle Spirit no longer needed pills, but something else!
For example, in Jianghuang City, pills such as Martial Emperor Pills and Martial Ancestor Pills were not in high demand, but Arcane Realm Stones were wanted.
Why was that?
It’s because everyone needs Arcane Realm Stones instead of Martial Emperor Pills.
And that’s the same case for the Divine Battle Spirit.
“Then what should I devour?” Qin Nan’s breathing intensified as he added after a slight hesitation, “This is the second question!”
“I don’t know, you have to find it yourself.”
The copper mirror said.
“You don’t know?”
Qin Nan’s eyes open wide.
Aren’t you the informative one, knowing about the secrets of the Divine Battle Spirit, etc., and you are telling me you don’t know what the Divine Battle Spirit needs to level up?
It was as if the copper mirror was aware of Qin Nan’s attitude, as it said, “Even though I don’t know the answer, I can tell you that everything is linked by fate. You will understand what I mean when the time comes; you will know what the Divine Battle Spirit needs to become a Di ranked Martial Spirit.”
Qin Nan was immersed in deep thought.
Lately, his Divine Battle Spirit had been upgraded at a very rapid pace.
Although it was only his Martial Spirit, there existed a bond between himself and the Martial Spirit. Perhaps he should slow down his pace and spend more time communicating with the Divine Battle Spirit.
Even though it could not speak, nor does it possess any intelligence, but its existence is real.
“Here are ten streams of Chaos Qi!”
Qin Nan felt relieved after organizing his thoughts. He then inserted ten streams of Chaos Qi into the copper mirror without delay.
The entire copper mirror shuddered violently, as the green glow grew stronger. It was as if countless ancient looking runes were flying toward the copper mirror from afar, causing the surface of the copper mirror to shine brightly.
Qin Nan observed the mirror for a while, but he gave up after failing to discover anything extraordinary from it. He then sat down on the spot and closed his eyes.
This time, he did not cultivate, nor did he do anything. He simply fell asleep.
That being said, in his sleep, he had a dream, a dream of his past.
Back when he was ten years old, at the Longhu Mountain Range, a ray of lightning struck down from above...
However, what Qin Nan had failed to notice was that ten rays of light appeared from his body after he was asleep, as a giant blurry figure emerged from the ground, standing in mid-air. Despite that, the people of Jianghuang City failed to notice its presence.
The Divine Battle Spirit lowered its head; its right pupil was empty, but its left pupil emitted a golden glow.
“Don’t think you are powerful now after leaving the Canglan Continent.
“He, is not someone you can look down on!”
“You, are being disrespectful!”
The Divine Battle Spirit’s lips moved slightly, as a shapeless sound wave was transmitted into the copper mirror.
The voice penetrated the ancient mirror and traveled across an ancient passage, before arriving at an ancient place, resulting in a terrifying calamity that took a while to return to normal.
Following this, the blurry figure of the Divine Battle Spirit disappeared.
After a while, the ancient place was left in a mess, as a lady stared into the void and wore a shocked expression, “Incredible, since when had the Canglan Continent given birth to such a presence? Divine Battle Spirit? What exactly are you?” It took her a long time to collect her thoughts, as she let out a sigh, “Qin Nan, huh? Perhaps you will be my Tribulation of Three Lifetimes…”
