Chapter 518 - Identity Unveiled
A single badge costed five thousand Primary Stones, and there were only a thousand of them every day.
Being rich did not necessarily mean you would be able to get one.
As such, the geniuses of the Black Tortoise Platoon were willing to owe Xiao Qi a favor just to acquire the badge.
However, Qin Nan had spoken at that instant.
This mere Martial Ancestor Realm cultivator—who had only been allowed there on the second floor because of his brother—was asking for a badge?
Shi Kai burst out laughing straight away, “HAHAHA, what a joke! A mere Martial Ancestor Realm cultivator like you is requesting a badge? What are you planning to do in White Tiger City? Could it be that you are thinking of taking part in the selection of the three platoons?”
There were two ways that the Black Tortoise Platoon, the Vermilion Bird Platoon, and the White Tiger Platoon selected their new recruits.
The first method was by sending people to various cities and towns to hold selections.
The second method was those who were interested headed to White Tiger City and took part in the selection held there. After all, the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom covered a massive area. It was impossible for the three platoons to visit every place.
The other geniuses wore disdainful looks.
They were not looking down on Qin Nan’s cultivation, but he was being too ignorant.
Xiao Qi frowned his eyebrows. Despite his gentle personality, he felt somehow uncomfortable. A badge would easily cause an uproar among the public, and he could easily sell one at the price of ten thousand Primary Stones.
The reason being that everyone was eager to enter White Tiger City.
Qin Nan could tell that Xiao Qi was hesitant, thus he brought his fists together and said, “Mr. Xiao Qi, if you are willing to give me the badge, I’ll try my best to assist you when required. Besides, I’m also one from the Vermi——”
Before Qin Nan could finish, Xiao Qi waved his hand and interrupted, before saying in a calm tone, “Forget it. It’s incredibly difficult to acquire a badge. You will need to find some other way if you’re planning to enter White Tiger City.”
Longhu’s expression became unpleasant after hearing this, but he had no right to be infuriated. After all, it was not Xiao Qi’s fault at all.
Qin Nan frowned and shook his head. It seemed like he would need to think of another plan.
“Bring the wine!”
Xiao Qi waved his hand.
A few gorgeous waitresses appeared from the first floor holding silver trays, each with a fiery jade jar placed on top. Inside it was a type of wine with the color of crimson flames, which emitted a formidable presence of Qi.
“This wine is known as Fiery Spirit Wine, which was refined with the saliva of the Fiery Fox Emperor and various rare ingredients over a period of one hundred days. I’m honored to meet you all today, thus everyone will be getting ten jars each. I guarantee its tastiness.” Xiao Qi explained.
The atmosphere became lively following this.
It was easy for the geniuses to find common interests between one another.
Qin Nan glanced at the Fiery Spirit Wine and recalled Princess Miao Miao’s words. He let out a grin and put the nine jars into his storage bag, before slowly enjoying one himself.
However, his actions caused the crowd to gaze at him with stronger disdain.
Shi Kai immediately mocked, “Interesting, very interesting. This wine is a gift from Mr. Xiao Qi, and you’ve kept them away. Could it be that you’re planning to sell them for Primary Stones? How disrespectful.”
Xiao Qi remained calm.
Qin Nan raised his eyebrows as his eyes flickered coldly.
This idiot had been picking on him since their first encounter, and he was running out of patience.
“Yo yo yo, do you want to fight now?” Shi Kai raised his tone after seeing Qin Nan’s reaction.
Without any warning, Qin Nan immediately exploded as his figure emitted a terrifying murderous intent.
Shi Kai’s expression greatly changed.
In addition to him, the others were wearing astonished looks too.
Wasn’t this guy only a Martial Ancestor? Why would they be intimidated by his murderous intent? Did he hide his true cultivation?
As Qin Nan was about to make his move, an old white-haired man hurried over and blurted out, “Master, master, according to the latest information, a genius of the Vermilion Bird Platoon has arrived here in our city, and he has yet to enter White Tiger City. He’s still somewhere in this city!”
The words left the crowd in awe.
The Vermilion Bird Platoon!
That was the Vermilion Bird Platoon!
Even Xiao Qi wore an astounded look.
Everyone knew that the geniuses recruited by the Vermilion Bird Platoon and the White Tiger Platoon were incredibly talented, granting them a unique identity that allowed them to freely enter White Tiger City.
Therefore, these geniuses would seldom linger around in the Second City, Third City, or Fourth City.
The old man calmed his breath and said, “This is his portrait.”
Following this, he took out a crystal that emitted a gentle glow that illustrated a human figure. Its vision gradually became clearer.
Meanwhile, Xiao Qi uttered an order, “Send our men and search the city at once, find this genius from the Vermilion Bird Platoon and invite him here to the Leisure Inn. However, don’t force him if he’s not willing to come!”
The old white-haired man immediately withdrew as he clearly knew the urgency of the matter on hand.
Xiao Qi took a deep breath to calm his thoughts before looking at the face of the human figure. However, following a glimpse, he was completely dumbfounded.
In addition to him, Shi Kai and the rest of the geniuses were stunned too.
It appeared that the human figure that gradually became clearer was none other than Qin Nan!
Longhu spat out a mouthful of wine after seeing the figure.
Wasn’t Qin Nan being hunted by the Four Great Factions, how did he become the disciple of the Vermilion Bird Platoon all of a sudden?
Xiao Qi, Shi Kai, and the rest opened their mouths wide with blank expressions on their face.
This guy was the disciple of the Vermilion Bird Platoon?
Qin Nan could not help but shake his head. It seemed like his actions at the entrance of the Second City had caused the guard to assume that he was someone from the Vermilion Bird Platoon.
The truth was that he had yet to decide if he was going to join the Vermilion Bird Platoon.
“How...how are you…” The person that was most astonished was none other than Shi Kai, as he had never expected a mere Martial Ancestor Realm cultivator to be the genius of the Vermilion Bird Platoon.
Qin Nan’s eyes coldened. If it weren’t for the interruption, he would have made his move.
“I——” Shi Kai recollected his thoughts. There was no doubt that the information was accurate. As for why Qin Nan’s cultivation was only at the Martial Ancestor Realm, it was obvious that he had concealed his true strength.
At that moment, Shi Kai could feel a chill rising in his heart.
He had been picking on Qin Nan at the entrance of the city, and in this inn as well.
If Qin Nan were to take his revenge, he would be doomed.
Upon having this thought, Shi Kai’s forehead was covered in layers of cold sweat while his body trembled.
Qin Nan gave him a cold stare.
Shi Kai could only feel an extreme icy aura encapsulating his body as he recalled the murderous intent that Qin Nan had emitted previously. He immediately left the place in a stagger as he did not dare to stay any longer.
