Chapter 496 - Troubled
Fan Xinru, who was standing at the side, became excited, “Brother Qin Nan, if it’s you, you won’t have any trouble joining the Vermillion Bird Platoon.”
Qin Nan was immersed in his thoughts. He did look forward to meeting the geniuses of the upper district, “Senior, when will the Vermillion Bird Platoon Selection take place?”
“In eight days.” Fan Hao hid his grin and spoke.
“Only eight days left?” Qin Nan nodded his head before bringing his fists together and saying, “I’ll be taking the spot then. Thanks for the offer. I’ll surely keep it in mind, and if you need any help in the future, I’ll try my best to offer my assistance.”
“HAHAHA, don’t worry about it. Xinru, bring your friend around the Fan Clan!”
Fan Hao let out a laugh and waved his hand.
The two stayed no longer and exited the hall. A while later, Fan Hao’s face was filled with tremendous joy.
He had managed to keep Qin Nan here in his clan!
Now, he would only need to await his progenitor from the White Tiger City to deal with Qin Nan!
If he were to acquire Qin Nan’s secrets, the future of their clan would be unimaginable!
In the midst of his joy, Fan Hao took out a badge and inserted his thoughts into it. Following this, the badge replied.
After reading the message, Fan Hao frowned, but was relieved as he mumbled to himself, “I’ll need to wait three days, huh? So be it, it doesn’t matter much.”
Fan Xinru brought Qin Nan to their clan’s training ground.
The entire place was extremely wide, covering an area with a circumference of over ten li. There was some sort of ancient formation beneath it, which was able to gather the Qi of the Heavens and Earth there, causing it to be covered in mist that hindered their vision.
“First-grade Xuan ranked, tenth-grade Huang ranked, Sixth-grade Xuan ranked…”
Qin Nan scanned the place and nodded his head. The disciples of the Fan Clan were truly extraordinary. The lowest ranked Martial Spirit was tenth-grade Huang ranked, while the highest was ninth-grade Xuan ranked.
Meanwhile, a cold snap could be heard, “So you’re the guy from the lower district?”
Qin Nan frowned and turned around. Before him stood a young man wearing a luxurious robe, whose cultivation had reached the peak Martial Ancestor Realm. His gaze toward Qin Nan was filled with hostility.
Fan Xinru wore a disgusted look, “Fan Xiao, mind your words. Brother Qin Nan is a well-respected guest of our clan!”
“A well-respected guest?” Fan Xiao’s eyes were filled with disdain as he stared at Qin Nan, “Let me remind you that you are currently in the upper district. Don’t think that you’re significant with your mere cultivation. Remember that Fan Xinru is my big brother’s woman, and you’d better stay away from her. Otherwise, be prepared to bear the consequences!”
Fang Xinru became enraged, “Fan Xiao, what kind of bullsh*t are you talking about——”
Before she could finish, Qin Nan calmly spoke, “Does it matter if I’m from the lower district? Is that a problem to you? If you are feeling unpleasant, feel free to have a life and death duel with me. I’ll only attack once.”
Fan Xiao was infuriated.
Only attack once?
This Qin Nan was humiliating him!
Despite being furious, Fan Xiao did not dare to do anything stupid. He had been told that the man before him was capable of killing a Blood-Eyed Bull King with a single punch. His strength was absolutely terrifying.
“We shall see!”
Fan Xiao gave him a glare before leaving the place.
“This Fan Xiao is ridiculous!” The rage on Fan Xinru’s face showed no sign of dissipating. She took a few deep breaths to calm herself down, before saying to Qin Nan in an apologetic tone, “Brother Qin Nan, sorry for dragging you into another mess; but don’t worry, I’ll talk to my father, and we will not trouble you any further.”
“Don’t worry about it!” Qin Nan shook his head and suddenly recalled something, “By the way, do you have any Primary Stones on you? I would like to buy something, lend me some for now.”
“You don’t need to borrow from me. You are the Honorary Supreme Elder of the Fan Clan. You are allowed to spend twenty thousand Primary Stones in the Ninth City as you wish.” Fan Xinru said smilingly.
Qin Nan was startled, as he had not expected the Honorary Supreme Elder of the Fan Clan to have such a privilege. He immediately said, “Then I shall spend some time shopping in the Ninth City. You don’t need to keep me company, I’ll be fine by myself.”
Qin Nan exited the clan and proceeded to the division of the Trading Alliance.
He remembered that apart from elixirs, pills, and treasures, the Trading Alliance would also sell information.
Qin Nan was eager to see if the Trading Alliance had any information regarding Princess Miao Miao, Tang Qingshan, and the others’ whereabouts. Even though they had no problem surviving in the upper district with their capabilities, it was easier for them to meet up earlier.
Qin Nan soon arrived at the Trading Alliance.
The place covered an area with a circumference of five hundred li. The building was luxurious and its entrance was completely crowded with people, resulting in a lively sight.
Qin Nan proceeded forward and took a look at the signboard. He discovered that he would need to head to the second floor to buy information, thus he immediately turned around and went straight to the stairs. While doing so, a man wearing an armor plate whose cultivation was at the Martial Ancestor Realm stood forward and said, “You will need to show me your invitation if you’re planning to go to the second floor.”
“An invitation?” Qin Nan was startled.
The cultivator wore a disdainful look in his eyes, “You must be from the lower district, right? Of course you wouldn’t know the rules! Without an invitation, you won’t be able to enter!”
One would need to have a significant status to buy information at the second-floor of the Trading Alliance.
After all, some of the news was not suitable to be made known to everyone.
“Is there a problem if I’m from the lower district?”
Qin Nan’s face turned cold.
Both Fan Xiao and this guard had picked on him just because he was from the lower district?
It was true that he did not know the rules, but it did not mean he was inferior just because he was from the lower district.
“Huh, what kind of outstanding person would be coming from a terrible place like the lower district?” The guard became even more conceited after Qin Nan answered back.
He had long observed Qin Nan’s appearance. Both his clothing and his aura failed to indicate that he was worth his attention.
“Is that so?”
Qin Nan’s eyes coldened.
However, at that instant, a firm voice could be heard, “What is it? What is going on here?”
A middle-aged man with a round belly approached them at a slow pace, as if he had done it on purpose.
“Elder!” The guard’s expression immediately changed as he said smilingly, “This person is from the lower district. He’s trying to go to the second floor without an invitation…”
“Oh?” The plump man turned his head toward Qin Nan. His face instantly coldened, “Stray cats and dogs are not allowed here in the Trading Alliance—leave at once!”
Qin Nan’s eyes were filled with an icy expression.
The Trading Alliance!
They had already caused enough trouble for him in the lower district, and they still dared to bully him after he had arrived in the upper district!
