Chapter 322 - Another Rare Change to the Inner Core
...Meanwhile, on Duanmu Peak...
The entire dojo was encapsulated within a huge barrier, with the Martial Ancestor Realm experts battling against each other inside it.
Outside the barrier stood figures with powerful auras, who turned out to be the envoys of the two Sacred Areas.
In addition, on the top of Duanmu Peak stood six powerful presences, with Peak Leader Duanmu in the leading spot. Beside him stood two Peak Leaders of the Qinglong Sacred Area, and three Peak Leaders of the Feiyang Sacred Area.
Both the envoys and the Peak Leaders were immersed in a chatter as they shared their thoughts regarding the battles taking place in the barrier.
“Hmm? That guy is quite impressive; his saber is incredibly ferocious!”
“What’s with that little girl? Even I can’t see through her cultivation!”
“She already captured my attention before; attractive facial features, a noble aura, she surely possesses a formidable background!”
The envoy’s attention was gathered on Princess Miao Miao’s figure, as their eyes showed a hint of astonishment, despite wearing calm expressions on their faces.
This was because the people of the two Sacred Areas were classified into disciples, custodians, envoys, and Peak Leaders. A Martial Ancestor Realm expert like Princess Miao Miao would be assigned the role of a custodian in either of the two Sacred Area. Therefore, as envoys, they had no right to assign one to take the role of a custodian. Only the Peak Leaders had the right to do so.
The envoys could only pick those who were not selected by the Peak Leaders.
At that instant, a shocking cry of dragons and tigers was heard, causing the envoys to be startled.
It appeared to be from the Longhu Ancestor Beast, who unveiled its true form in his fight. His dragon head and tiger body combined resulted in an imperious sight.
“Not bad, the bloodline feels quite atavistic, and it belongs to the true dragon bloodline.” The eyes of Peak Leader Duanmu flickered with excitement. He was aware that Longhu Ancestor Beast was no ordinary presence, but he did not expect him to be this extraordinary, “He is quite destined with the Qinglong Sacred Area, I shall let him join the Duanmu Peak.”
The three Peak Leaders of the Feiyang Sacred Area felt like saying something. After witnessing how extraordinary the Longhu Ancestor Beast was, their first thought was to recruit him to the Feiyang Sacred Area. However, since the selection was held at Duanmu Peak, they had no choice but to give up.
“That little girl is not bad either; she will be joining the Duanmu Peak!” Peak Leader Duanmu spoke once again.
“No way! I won’t agree! She must join our Feiyang Sacred Area!” One of the Peak Leaders of the Feiyang Sacred Area could not wait any longer to oppose his thought.
“That’s right; she must join the Feiyang Sacred Area!” The other two Peak Leaders expressed their thoughts.
Are you kidding me; they could easily tell that this little girl possessed an extraordinary background, one that was not any weaker than the Longhu Ancestor Beast, or may in fact be stronger. Now that the Longhu Ancestor Beast was taken, they would not give up on Princess Miao Miao.
“Hehe! Remember that you are now in the Qinglong Sacred Area!” The other two Peak Leaders of the Qinglong Sacred Area burst out laughing.
“Enough!” Peak Leader Duanmu’s eyes glistened as he waved his hand and said, “There’s no point in fighting among us now. Let them choose their paths themselves!”
“Sure thing.” The three Peak Leaders of the Feiyang Sacred Area knew that they stood no chance, thus they could only nod their heads in agreement, as they began to ponder what condition they should offer later in order to recruit Princess Miao Miao to the Feiyang Sacred Area,
...Meanwhile, inside the barrier…
The geniuses focused on spectating the battles between the Martial Ancestor Realm experts. They could easily tell that the Longhu Ancestor Beast and Princess Miao Miao appeared to be much more stronger than the others, which caused them to discover a problem.
Weren’t these two the ones standing beside Qin Nan a moment ago?
“The Longhu Ancestor Beast, appointed by Peak Leader Duanmu!”
Fang Jian suddenly uttered a yell.
“MUAHAHAHA!” The Longhu Ancestor Beast burst out laughing with his arms akimbo after hearing the words, “That old man Duanmu is indeed insightful; recruiting me is the wisest choice he has ever made in his life!”
While the Longhu Ancestor Beast was immersed in being proud of his achievement, before the crowd could react, Fang Jian uttered another roar, “Six Peak Leaders of the two Sacred Areas are interested in appointing Princess Miao Miao. Princess Miao Miao, the six Peak Leaders invite you to have a chat with them so that you can make your decision!”
The words served as shocking explosions to the crowd, including the spectating envoys.
Being appointed by six Peak Leaders?
Are you kidding me; six Peak Leaders trying to appoint the same person!
The Longhu Ancestor Beast’s proud expression instantly stiffened.
“No need for that.” Princess Miao Miao waved her hand and said in a calm tone, “The old man Duanmu will do.”
Fang Jian nodded his head with utter respect. It was obvious that both Princess Miao Miao and the Longhu Ancestor Beast would have a brighter future than his, not to mention that they shared a close relationship with Qin Nan, thus it was a must to develop a good relationship with them.
The six Peak Leaders at the top of Duanmu Peak were stunned after seeing this, especially the three Peak Leaders of the Feiyang Sacred Area, who were slightly furious.
Peak Leader Duanmu must be cheating!
Otherwise, why would Princess Miao Miao choose Duanmu Peak straight away without asking any questions?
That being said, since what was done was done, they had no choice but to switch their focus onto appointing the other remaining Martial Ancestor Realm experts.
On the dojo, the geniuses now wore complicated expressions.
To be able to be appointed by six Peak Leaders at the same time served as a great indication that Princess Miao Miao’s talent and cultivation were exceedingly remarkable.
Furthermore, this girl was a friend of Qin Nan too!
If Qin Nan’s friends were both exceptional, would Qin Nan be ordinary himself?
Jiang Bilan’s eyes flickered. She was even more confused with Qin Nan’s background now. Is this guy really one who possessed a tenth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirit?
An explosion took place all of a sudden, which appeared to be a terrifying gust of wind being emitted from Qin Nan’s body, which felt like scorching flames as it struck the crowd, causing the geniuses to be utterly shocked.
The gazes of the geniuses landed on Qin Nan’s figure at the same time.
Jiao Zhe and Jiao Shiyi glanced at Qin Nan too.
They could only see Qin Nan’s skin turning red, as the sound of rolling flames like the cries of a beast could be heard from his body, causing the hearts of the disciples who possessed a relatively weak cultivation to skip a beat.
They could sense that for some reason, the strength of Qin Nan’s flesh was improved in a multiplicative manner, which was now extremely terrifying!
“This Qin Nan is indeed extraordinary. His flesh alone is on par with a third-layer Martial Emperor Realm presence!” While the crowd was immersed in a great shock, Jiao Zhe spoke at a slow pace.
On par with a third-layer Martial Emperor Realm presence!
The words were like a heavy blow striking the hearts of the crowd.
However, the rare occurrence did not stop there, as a succession of beast-like cries appeared in Qin Nan’s mind, each cry possessing a weird magical effect.
At that instant, the geniuses were startled, including Jiao Zhe and the rest. That was because they could feel the presence of his Divine Sense, which appeared to be quite powerful!
As everyone knew, only those whose Inner Core had survived the Tribulation would be able to become Martial Emperors, allowing one to possess Divine Sense.
However, why did this Qin Nan possess Divine Sense when his cultivation was only at the half-Martial Emperor Realm?
