Chapter 541 - The Name that Shook the Eastern Continent
Nothing in the history of the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom—or the entire upper district’s Eastern Continent—had caused Zhou Bihua to lose his ground.
Even when his only disciple had betrayed him!
The main reason was that the significance of the Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird was too important to him!
The White Tiger Platoon, the Vermilion Bird Platoon, and the Black Tortoise Platoon were established at the same time after the kingdom was built. However, how did the White Tiger Platoon become the strongest among them?
This was because the Skyhowl White Tiger was the only Divine Beast left!
The Skyhowl White Tiger possessed a cultivation of the half-Martial Progenitor Realm at its peak!
Even though its strength had now weakened and was on par with Zhou Bihua’s, its presence resembled a symbol for the entire Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom!
However, if Qin Nan were able to resurrect the Blood-Winged Vermilion and assist it to return to its peak, the Vermilion Bird Platoon would have a half-Martial Progenitor Realm expert!
Furthermore, the Vermilion Bird Platoon would have their own symbol, allowing the people to unite better!
When the time came, how could the White Tiger Platoon be comparable to the Vermilion Bird Platoon?
Even in the entire Eastern Continent, the Vermilion Bird Platoon would serve as a formidable presence!
As such, Zhou Bihua was willing to recruit Qin Nan as his disciple even if it meant offending the Four Great Factions.
The Vermilion Bird Platoon...had waited too long for this!
Qin Nan was startled. He had not expected it to come to this. He pondered for a moment and nodded his head, before he straightened his face and brought his fists together, “Senior, I guess there’s no need to recruit me as your disciple, right? Don’t you worry, as a member of the Vermilion Bird Platoon, I will do my best to resurrect the Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird!”
“You don’t want to be my disciple?” Zhou Bihua withheld the shock from hearing the words in his heart and asked in a confused tone.
Had Qin Nan just rejected the offer that countless people of the Eastern Continent dreamed of?
Qin Nan nodded his head.
He personally considered himself to have one and a half masters.
Tang Qingshan was half a master to him, who had taught him the Heavenly Accumulating Strike at the Mystic Spirit Sect, which had been tremendously helpful to him. He was like a friend and a mentor to him, thus he considered him half a master.
The only full master was Sacred Leader Qinglong.
He was his real master in his heart.
“I guess I will not recruit you as my disciple if you say so. However, I still have to declare that you are my successor, as I will need a reason to protect you.” Zhou Bihua took a deep breath before saying in a serious tone, “Qin Nan, as the Platoon Leader of the Vermilion Bird Platoon, as a senior, I hope that you’re able to fully resurrect the Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird!”
Qin Nan answered with a firm tone.
Firstly, Zhou Bihua was relatively trustworthy, and secondly, it would only bring benefits to him if the Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird was resurrected.
“This is the Vermilion Bird Sacred Badge, hold onto it.” Zhou Bihua let out a sigh of relief after seeing Qin Nan’s reaction, before taking out a fiery badge and saying, “If I’m not around when you encounter some trouble, use this badge. The entire Vermilion Bird Platoon will be there to help you!”
“The entire Vermilion Bird Platoon?”
Qin Nan was shocked. The badge felt extremely heavy in his hand.
In other words, possessing the badge was equivalent to having the entire Vermilion Bird Platoon as his backup!
“You should go and refine the Vermilion Bird’s Blood for now.”
Zhou Bihua urged him while waving his hand.
“Err...sure!” Qin Nan was about to say something, but denied the thought after seeing his reaction. He proceeded to the first-floor of the Cultivation Hall.
Zhou Bihua stared at Qin Nan’s departing figure in silence for a moment, before he suddenly burst out laughing.
The laugh was filled with joy and excitement, and anticipation!
The Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird...was going to reappear in the world!
The moment it showed itself, the moment its cry pierced the Heavens, how astonished would the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom and the Eastern Continent be?
The thought alone caused Zhou Bihua’s blood to boil.
“Sacred Leader Qinglong, you old bastard, I’m impressed. You predicted the future a few hundred years ago…” Zhou Bihua mumbled to himself, “Although I’m aware of the things that happened in the lower district, I’ve no choice since the Martial Serendipity Pavilion stopped me from interfering. Old prick, I owe you one. Besides, the Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird is going to be resurrected, so don’t you worry. I will never abandon Qin Nan, even when the Four Great Factions come to hunt him down…”
Zhou Bihua’s eyes flickered with an icy glow.
“Today, I shall let everyone remember the name Duan Qing!”
Zhou Bihua took out a Vermilion Bird Sacred Badge and inserted his thoughts.
...Meanwhile, the sky was clear with fine weather...
As usual, White Tiger City was extremely lively, with countless experts filling the streets, who all worked diligently in order to improve their strength and the strength of the descendants of their clans.
...Meanwhile, in the residence of the First Duke among the Ten Dukes...
As the leader of the Ten Dukes, it went without saying that the First Duke possessed a formidable strength, which was only second to the top three experts of the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom. His cultivation had also reached the Martial Sacred Realm.
However, a badge on his waist began to emit a glow.
The First Duke frowned as he checked the badge. However, he was completely astounded by the message from it.
In addition to him, the same badge hanging on the waists of many experts across White Tiger City began to glow as well.
As the experts checked the badge, their faces were filled with astonishment.
A brief while later, a shocking piece of news exploded throughout the entire White Tiger City.
Zhou Bihua, the current Platoon Leader of the Vermilion Bird Platoon, one of the top three experts of the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom, had found his successor, whose name was Duan Qing!
“Who is this Duan Qing? Why would Platoon Leader Zhou pick him as his successor?”
“Could it be that this Duan Qing is able to match the talents of that genius?”
“I’m afraid so. Otherwise, why would Platoon Leader Zhou recruit him as his successor!?”
“Gasp, does that mean our Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom is going to have two seeded geniuses?”
At that instant, countless astounded voices and speculations could be heard in White Tiger City.
Meanwhile, an hour later, the news was made known to the entire Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom.
One and a half hours later, the news was spread to the other three factions!
Countless experts and authorities of the Eastern Continent were immersed in great astonishment!
Zhou Bihua had recruited another successor!
What...did that imply?
In just three hours’ time, the name Duan Qing had been made known to the entire Eastern Continent, striking the hearts of its people!
