Chapter 542 - A Huge Sum of Primary Stones
...Meanwhile, among the Four Great Factions, the Dao-Seeking Mountain...
“Duan Qing? I don’t f**king care who he is!” Progenitor Wen Dao’s expression darkened as he groaned, “I just want to hear information about Qin Nan! Where exactly is he!? It’s been three months since the Four Great Factions worked together, and we still can’t find him?”
The entire hall was filled with Progenitor Wen Dao’s fury.
The Wen Dao Elders glanced at one another with unpleasant looks on their faces.
Not only had Qin Nan disappeared!
Even his companions who were at the Ocean of Death previously—including Tang Qingshan, Princess Miao Miao, Gong Yang, Longhu, Zhao Fang, etc.—had all vanished into thin air!
“Continue searching! And double the reward!”
Progenitor Wen Dao uttered a raging roar.
The Wen Dao Elders were astonished.
Currently, if one were able to locate Qin Nan’s whereabouts, the person would be recruited as Progenitor Wen Dao’s disciple and be given four Sacred Weapons. If this were doubled, wouldn’t that mean eight Sacred Weapons?
“Time is running out!”
Progenitor Wen Dao spoke in a cold tone as he remembered something.
Following this, as Duan Qing’s name shook the entire upper district’s Eastern Continent, another shocking piece of news spread rapidly too.
The reward for finding Qin Nan had been doubled!
“What? Double the reward?”
“Gasp, eight Sacred Weapons! That’s eight Sacred Weapons!”
“What did this Qin Nan actually do?”
“HAHAHA, eight Sacred Weapons. If I had the chance to stumble into this Qin Nan, I would surely capture him!”
“Tsk tsk, this year is abnormal indeed—the Four Great Factions hunting a disciple named Qin Nan while Duan Qing has become Zhou Bihua’s successor.”
...As the undercurrent surged within the Eastern Continent, meanwhile, at the Cultivation Hall of the Vermilion Bird Platoon...
Xue Meng and her crew sat with their legs crossed. Each of their figures were encapsulated within a fiery glow that burned robustly as the glow slowly merged into their bodies while manipulating their auras.
“The Vermilion Bird’s Blood is indeed magical…”
Qin Nan’s eyes flickered with astonishment. He sat down on the ground and took out the drop of Vermilion Bird’s Blood before devouring it straight away.
An incredible burning force was spread to his limbs and bones.
Furthermore, a stream of mysterious aura flowed within his body.
The aura felt like it originated from the Nine Heavens, or from the ancient era.
Qin Nan guided the mysterious aura to flow rapidly within his body. As the cycle repeated, his blood began to boil.
This was the bloodline of the Divine God of Battle.
“It appears that my bloodline is being refined and improved after devouring the Vermilion Bird’s Blood.”
Qin Nan’s eyes glistened.
The bloodline of the Divine God of Battle was formed after he had merged with the left eye and the left arm of the Divine God of Battle. However, the energy of the bloodline was still too weak, thus it was difficult to be noticed.
According to Qin Nan’s speculation, a vast amount of energy was required to awaken the bloodline, thus it might serve as a difficult task.
Time gradually passed; ten days after Qin Nan had consumed the Vermilion Bird’s Blood, a sudden explosion took place in his body.
Following this, his flesh was engulfed in illusionary flames as the figure of the Vermilion Bird floated behind him.
It appeared that after refining the Vermilion Bird’s Blood, his flesh had experienced a tremendous improvement.
“It seems like my current flesh is more powerful than an ordinary first-layer Martial Highness, or even stronger than that…” Qin Nan’s eyes were immersed in joy. He soon calmed his thoughts and headed to the second-floor.
To him, refining the Vermilion Bird’s Blood was less important. His priority now was to learn the Art of the Immortal Vermilion Bird!
Even a top genius like Mu Chengye was crazy about it!
Apart from Zhou Bihua, Elder Wang was also there on the second-floor.
He let out a smile after seeing Qin Nan, “Duan Qing, do you have any idea how many people came to ask about you in the past ten days?”
As a matter of fact, while Qin Nan had been cultivating in seclusion over the past ten days, countless experts of the White Tiger Platoon, the Black Tortoise Platoon, and the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom had paid a visit to the Vermilion Bird Platoon just to meet Duan Qing.
They were keen to know what kind of capabilities this Duan Qing possessed, that Zhou Bihua was willing to recruit him as his successor.
“Don’t waste your time listening to this useless crap.” Zhou Bihua waved his hand and said smilingly, “Before I teach you the Art of the Immortal Vermilion Bird, I have to make it clear that you will find enemies here at the Vermilion Bird Platoon too, and they will pick on you, so be prepared for that.”
Qin Nan nodded his head.
Apart from the fact that he had already offended the Four Great Factions, he always behaved the same way—he would not trouble anyone and would only avenge himself when his enemies troubled him in the first place.
Zhou Bihua let out a yell while his forehead fired a ray of red light.
If one were to take a closer look, they would discover that the ray was filled with countless runes rotating within it. Each rune was extremely difficult to be understood.
As Qin Nan’s figure was struck by the ray, his brain began to buzz vigorously.
The Martial Art was too obscure; the principles that it contained were extraordinary!
After the period it took for an incense to burn, Zhou Bihua’s aura became calm as he advised, “This Martial Art is different than the others, and it’s extremely difficult to be learned. It’s almost impossible to be mastered, thus you should take your time while cultivating it…”
Qin Nan withdrew his thoughts and instead of taking a look at the Martial Art, he blurted out, “Senior, I will need plenty of Primary Stones to resurrect the Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird, the more the better.”
Upon saying this, Qin Nan’s heartbeat uncontrollably increased.
This was Zhou Bihua, one of the top three experts of the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom!
How many Primary Stones would he be able to collect with his identity?
With these Primary Stones, not only could he accumulate lots of Chaos Qi, he could rank up his Divine Battle Spirit too!
Both Zhou Bihua and Elder Wang frowned.
It went without saying that they did not believe Qin Nan was able to resurrect the Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird with merely Primary Stones. However, since Qin Nan had requested it, they were more than willing to collect Primary Stones for him.
“Our Vermilion Bird Platoon doesn’t really save up lots of Primary Stones. Here are more than nine hundred thousand Primary Stones, take them all.” Zhou Bihua threw a storage bag into Qin Nan’s hands without hesitating.
“Nine...nine hundred thousand?”
Qin Nan’s heart shuddered violently.
“Seniors, is it possible for you to leave me alone for now? I’ll call you later.” Qin Nan tried to control his racing heart while taking a deep breath.
Zhou Bihua and Elder Wang left the place without querying further.
Qin Nan set up a formation to cut off the aura of the place, thus it was impossible for anyone to peek at him.
The Divine Battle Spirit was exceedingly important to him. He would not want to expose his secrets at all costs, thus it did not mean that he did not trust Zhou Bihua and Elder Wang.
Qin Nan swiftly glanced at the storage bag. His breathing intensified as he ran out of patience.
More than nine hundred thousand Primary Stones!
What stage would the Divine Battle Spirit reach with these Primary Stones?
