Chapter 364 - The Concealed Mystical Ground
Meanwhile, a few of the cultivators had arrived after hearing the benefits that Jiang Bilan had promised. They were stunned when they saw Qin Nan floating in mid-air.
Qin Nan’s left eye emitted a brilliant glow as a ferocious battle intent was fired into the sky. Without any hesitation, his figure descended straight in Jiang Bilan’s direction.
Jiao Shiyi uttered a roar as his figure transformed into a beam of sword aura that fired right toward Qin Nan.
After the selection of the two Sacred Areas, he had experienced various battles at the Feiyang Sacred Area, allowing his cultivation to level up to the peak of the Martial Emperor Realm, while his Sword Art was further enhanced. A single slash was able to accumulate the force of the Heavens and Earth to be fired at the target.
“I will be your opponent!”
Xiao Feipeng groaned.
It was as if his figure had transformed into an ancient Kun-peng, with two invisible wings growing out from his back. With a flap, a series of explosions took place due to the ferocious gusts of wind.
Qin Nan’s eyes stared at his opponents like the glaring eyes of a furious buddha’s warrior attendant.
His hair instantly turned crimson while dancing wildly, as a blazing armor-plate was formed on his body. Following this, a five-zhang-long scorching cloak appeared on his back.
Qin Nan raised his arms and lashed out a punch like a bow being released.
A boundlessly powerful force crushed downward like a surging flood, shattering the Sword Intent and the gusts of wind into pieces.
“How is this possible…”
Jiao Shiyi and Xiao Feipeng’s faces turned incredibly pale.
His flesh alone was able to nullify our killing blows with ease?
How strong exactly was his cultivation?
In the midst of the battle, Jiao Shiyi and Xiao Feipeng decided to go all out as they tremendously increased their speed and dashed toward Qin Nan from both sides while executing their abilities at the same time.
“You two alone are not worthy to be my opponents yet!”
Qin Nan uttered a roar as he hurled out two other punches toward his opponents.
These two punches felt like two giant mountains crushing downward onto the figures of Jiao Shiyi and Xiao Feipeng, who were immediately sent flying.
The crowd of cultivators stared in disbelief.
The two great geniuses, Jiao Shiyi and Xiao Feipeng, could not even resist a single attack from Qin Nan.
Qin Nan’s left arm shuddered as Superbia of the Seven Great Sins flew into his hand, while the tip of the saber was locked onto Jiang Bilan’s figure.
It had been a long time since they had begun to share a conflictual relationship with one another; now was the time to break that relationship with a slash!
“Brother, save her!”
Jiao Shiyi uttered in a harsh tone.
Jiao Zhe placed his hands together, with no sign of budging. The battle was none of his business.
Qin Nan hurled the saber in his hand, which emitted a powerful stream of Saber Intent aimed at Jiang Bilan’s head.
“My friend Qin Nan, why do you have to be so cruel to me?” Jiang Bilan let out a smile as she waved her hand. Following this, a glow was emitted beneath her, which encapsulated her figure, forming a defensive barrier.
A shocking explosion occurred due to the slash of the Saber Intent, but the barrier encapsulating Jiang Bilan’s figure only shuddered violently without showing any sign of shattering. Its defensive capability was quite impressive.
Jiang Bilan wore the same blossoming smile on her face.
The skill was an atavistic ability, known as the ‘Spiritual Protective Light’. It was obtained by the Trading Alliance from a rogue cultivator. Once executed, cultivators of the same realm would not be able to break the barrier.
In other words, unless her opponent was a Martial Ancestor Realm expert, no one would be able to overpower her defense.
“Qin Nan, eat this!”
Jiao Shiyi and Xiao Feipeng instantly reacted and were about to charge forward when they heard a sudden shoosh. An adorable little girl appeared before them out of nowhere, whose body emitted a crackling noise as if an ancient dragon was being awakened while she spoke with a smile, “Hey little kids, allow the Princess to teach you some manners today!”
After the words were spoken, the little girl’s figure arrived above Jiao Shiyi and Xiao Feipeng. Before the two could react, the little girl spread her fingers as an endless stream of Sword Intent was fired from the tips of her fingers, forming a sea of Sword Intent that devoured their figures.
Jiao Shiyi and Xiao Feipeng were utterly terrified.
Such terrifying Sword Intent!
Since when did Qin Nan have such a powerful companion?
“If I recall correctly, you must be Princess Miao Miao, right? My friend Qin Nan, you are quite impressive indeed. Even the Princess is willing to restrict her cultivation and accompany you here to participate in the Martial Ancestor Mystical Ground trial.” Jiang Bilan spoke in an indifferent manner, as if Princess Miao Miao’s presence did not matter to her.
“Cut the bullshit, do you think a mere barrier like this is enough to stop me!”
Qin Nan’s left eye emitted a golden glow and scanned the barrier. In just half a breath’s time, he was able to detect the weak point of the Spiritual Protective Light.
It appeared that the Spiritual Protective Light was formed with the force of the Heavens and Earth. There was a force-accumulating point at the top, which was the most fragile part of the barrier.
Qin Nan lashed out a slash at the point, causing the entire barrier to shatter instantly.
Jiang Bilan was stunned. She had not expected the defensive skill that she was proud of to be overpowered so easily.
Despite her astonishment, her figure transformed into a gust of wind without any hesitation that swept across the surroundings. However, Qin Nan had prepared himself for this, as he unleashed his left eye of the Divine God of Battle and captured Jiang Bilan’s location. Following this, without showing any expression on his face, he flung his saber with an incredible force at his target.
“Brother, if you don’t save her, I’ll kill myself right before you!”
Jiao Shiyi uttered a roar with a twisted expression after witnessing the scene. The sword in his hand buzzed vigorously, as if he was ready to die at any time.
Jiao Zhe let out a sigh after seeing the crazy expression on his brother’s face. He then reached out his hand and grabbed the Saber Intent despite the fact that it was over ten meters away. Following this, an ancient blue glow was ignited on his fingers as he clenched his fist. Although it was only a slight movement, a terrifying force exploded from his fist and shattered the Saber Aura with brute force.
“Such terrifying flesh!”
The same thought came into everyone’s mind at that instant.
Qin Nan’s eyes flickered vigorously.
Among the geniuses of the Feiyang Sacred Area, Jiao Shiyi was nowhere close to being his worthy opponent and Xiao Feipeng could only somehow force himself to face him. Only Jiang Bilan and Jiao Zhe, these two peerless geniuses, could match his strength.
“Senior Brother Jiao Zhe, you have my thanks!”
Jiang Bilan’s figure appeared on one of the statues out of nowhere while laughing in a pleasant tone.
“My friend Qin Nan, I have no intention to interfere in the battle. However, it is impossible to get rid of the earthly constraints binding me, since I was born in this world. I hope you can understand…”
Jiao Zhe wore a helpless expression.
He had never planned to befoe Qin Nan. As a matter of fact, he actually admired Qin Nan’s talents, but his brother Jiao Shiyi had always been his burden.
“Understand my ass!”
A loud roar could be heard all of a sudden.
A handsome young man emitting a forceful aura approached Jiao Zhe at a great speed. The person was none other than Zhao Fang.
Zhao Fang had no idea that his real identity had already been exposed, thus he even let out a gentle smile toward Qin Nan when he spoke, “Buddy Qin Nan, I’ve always disliked this Jiang Bilan. I’ll prevent this Jiang Zhe from interfering, so you can deal with Jiang Bilan!”
Qin Nan’s figure shuddered violently. He almost failed to withhold the urge to hurl his saber at Zhao Fang’s figure.
That being said, now was not the time to do so.
Qin Nan raised his head while his left eye unleashed the Suppression of the Divine God of Battle with a golden glow.
As expected of the Saintess of the Trading Alliance, Jiang Bilan showed no sign of being intimidated apart from an initial shudder. As soon as Qin Nan unleashed his attack, she said with a giggle, “My friend Qin Nan, I have to say that I’m quite impressed. Despite coming here on your own, you manage to defeat all the geniuses on my side. It’s a relief that I never underestimated your strength. Therefore, I shall show you the big present that I’ve prepared for you!”
She reached out her finger and patted the head of the statues.
Following this, an endless glow burst out from the three statues as if they were being awakened, which was then fired into the sky, causing the entire island to be encapsulated within a barrier and everything to be covered in the color of blood.
The Heavens and Earth are covered in the color of blood!
The Heavens and Earth are covered in the color of blood!
The entire island experienced a shocking change, as a rumbling roar could be heard coming from the sky, as if there was a demonic being hiding behind the clouds. As the cry penetrated the hearts of the crowd, their souls felt disturbed, as if they had entered a place filled with the presence of devils.
Qin Nan was startled.
