Chapter 508 - A Warning in Vain
The crowd of the Ninth City was stunned after viewing the scene in the sky.
Who exactly was Qin Nan? Why was the inspector of the Vermilion Blood Platoon eager to detain him personally?
The progenitors were quick in their thinking. Since the people of the Vermilion Bird Platoon had arrived in advance, they could only tell them the information and hope that they would be grateful toward their contribution.
After all, they were the ones who had told the Vermilion Bird Platoon where Qin Nan was.
Qin Nan, who just flown out of the Ninth City, turned his head around as he was aware of something behind him. His eyes immediately widened.
“Ninth Prince? And two peak Martial Highnesses? Judging from their attire, they are from the Vermilion Bird Platoon…” Qin Nan’s face was filled with astonishment, before he quickly reacted, causing his face to turn incredibly dark.
He was just done with the progenitors of the two clans, and now the people of the Vermilion Bird Platoon had arrived. This was not looking good!
“Either way, I will not endanger the lives of the cultivators in the Ninth City!”
Qin Nan glanced at the restless Nascent Soul and clenched his teeth. He then executed the Phoenix Soul-Consuming Fire and Sky Thunder and sprang forward at his full speed.
Even if a battle would break out between him and the Vermilion Bird Platoon, he had to stay away from the Ninth City!
At that instant, the sky above Qin Nan suddenly collapsed as a figure stepped out from the rift.
The figure was a middle-aged man with a sharp face. Looking from the side, his nose was incredibly sharp; in addition to his spiky hair, it gave him an intimidating appearance.
The man was one of the inspectors of the Vermilion Bird Platoon—Sun Yi—who was relatively famous throughout the entire Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom.
“Qin Nan, I did not expect you have the guts to come to the Ninth City. Be suppressed!”
Sun Yi’s eyes flickered with excitement. Even he was interested in the rewards promised by the Four Great Factions. He immediately reached out his hand and unleashed the force of the Martial Highness Realm, causing the sky covering the area of one li above Qin Nan to crush downward toward him.
“Strike him at once!”
Qin Nan snapped while his figure surprisingly dashed in Sun Yi’s direction.
The Tribulation moved with Qin Nan’s figure and instantly discovered Sun Yi’s presence. Rays of lightning struck downward toward Sun Yi’s figure in a ferocious manner. Sun Yi uttered a hollow laugh as his figure shuddered. His body emitted a layer of a light barrier, which was able to nullify the lightning rays when they approached his body, leaving him perfectly unharmed.
“Trying to hurt me with these mere lightning strikes? Qin Nan, stop resisting!”
Sun Yi burst out laughing.
Qin Nan could feel his pores bursting open. This Sun Yi was indeed a peak Martial Highness Realm expert. The force of the Martial Highness Realm in his body was incredibly abundant, unlike that of the progenitors.
At that instant, the Nascent Soul inside Qin Nan’s body was able to break free from a part of Qin Nan’s control, resulting in a terrifying absorption force being emitted into the sky.
The surrounding atmosphere became suffocating once again.
Sun Yi raised his eyebrows while glancing into the sky. With a glimpse, he was left in awe.
The six-hundred li Tribulation continued to spread further and reached a width of a thousand two hundred li in just the blink of an eye!
BANG! BANG! BANG!
The lightning rays of the stormy cloud became even more powerful as they struck at Sun Yi’s figure continuously, causing his figure to be devoured in the midst of the strikes.
The crowd of the Ninth City were left speechless seeing this.
One thousand two hundred li!
That was one thousand two hundred li!
How could Qin Nan’s Tribulation be this terrifying?
Song Yu did not show any change in his expression. After all, he had witnessed Qin Nan’s three-layered Tribulation before. Even though this one thousand two hundred li Tribulation was powerful, it was only similar to the three-layered Tribulation.
The inspector of the Vermilion Bird Platoon beside Song Yu was an old white-haired man. His eyes flickered as he nodded his head, before he reached out his hand and grabbed Song Yu’s shoulder, and descended beside Qin Nan with a flicker.
“Another peak Martial Highness!”
Qin Nan’s figure shuddered while his breathing halted.
The Nascent Soul of the Divine God of Battle had yet to unleash a third of its energy still. If he were not to leave now, he would no longer be able to control the Nascent Soul soon!
“Mark of the Demon God!”
At that instant, an infuriated roar took place in the stormy clouds.
Sun Yi’s hands performed an ancient hand seal, causing magical rays to be emitted into the sky and shatter the growing stormy cloud.
Sun Yi held his hands together tightly as the light rays were accumulated on his palm, before he fired them into Qin Nan’s body.
Crack crack crack!
A series of bone-cracking noises could be heard as Qin Nan’s joints were covered in magical glows. These glows possessed terrifying sealing forces, which prevented Qin Nan from moving.
Sun Yi flicked his finger and summoned a rare artifact that transformed into an enormous pot that covered Qin Nan and their own figures while blocking the lightning strikes of the Tribulation.
Song Yu immediately burst out laughing, “HAHAHA, what a surprise that we’ve met again! The entire upper district is trying to hunt you down, and you dare to appear in public still. I’m entirely impressed. Very well…”
Upon saying this, Song Yu’s face turned incredibly cold, “Hand over the Heaven-Shrouding Herb! And tell me the secrets of Sacred Leader Qinglong! If I’m satisfied with your answer, I will spare your life. Otherwise, I’ll let you have a taste of the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom’s Hand of Punishment——”
However, before he could finish, Qin Nan suddenly snapped, “Song Yu and the people of the Vermilion Bird Platoon, cut your bullshit. Let me go at once! Otherwise, the entire Ninth City will be destroyed! You will be destroyed as well!”
The words caused Song Yu to be stunned. Even Sun Yi and the speechless old white-haired man were startled as well.
The Ninth City would be destroyed?
They would be destroyed too?
Was this Qin Nan...crazy?
After a slight pause, Song Yu burst out laughing with a piercing voice, “HAHAHA, how impressive that you’re able to destroy the Ninth City and us too! Qin Nan, where do you get your confidence from? Are you trying to bluff me? Ridiculous, Elder Sun Yi, please shatter his Tribulation now!”
Song Yu wore a mocking look in his eyes.
Previously when Qin Nan had triggered the three-layered Tribulation, it was shattered by the Death Emperor in the end. Now, even though he had summoned a one thousand two hundred li Tribulation, it was about to be shattered by him, Song Yu!
Sun Yi licked his lips while his flesh emitted loud explosions as he accumulated the force of the Martial Highness Realm in his body, as if a dragon in deep sleep were being awakened.
Qin Nan’s expression changed greatly.
Did they seriously think that it was only a joke?
A loud explosion occurred inside Qin Nan’s body as the Nascent Soul broke further free from his control, which emitted a terrifying force of the Heavens and Earth into the sky.
Song Yu, Sun Yi, and the old white-haired man were astounded by it.
The old white-haired man immediately executed his eye-technique and glanced at Qin Nan’s figure. His face turned pale white with a glimpse.
How...how was this possible!
