Chapter 566 - Song Li, the Second Prince
The entire hall fell silent as everyone cast their glances toward the entrance.
The First Prince's expression became ferocious while his body emitted a great murderous intent, startling the people around him.
Qin Nan gave Jiang Bilan a thoughtful look, before he withdrew his gaze and switched his focus toward the entrance.
The Second Prince was considered the most mysterious one among the princes. He had acquired the support of the White Tiger Platoon, but days before the trial of the Dragon Abyss Mystical Ground, he had suddenly left White Tiger City.
Tap tap tap.
A series of clear footsteps could be heard as three figures slowly appeared before them.
The one leading in front had short silver hair. He was wearing a snowy mink coat, while his eyes were the color of ice, grabbing the attention of the crowd.
This man was Song Li, the Second Prince!
"Seventh-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit, a cultivation of the Undefeatable Martial Dominator Realm…"
Qin Nan's face was filled with astonishment as he inspected the Second Prince with his left eye of the Divine God of Battle. He could be considered a great genius himself.
Apart from the Second Prince, there were two young men standing beside him.
The man on his left was wearing a silver armor plate. He had a bulky figure and rough facial features, while his eyes had a fierce look. Together with his scattered white hair, he looked like a human-figured white tiger!
The man was none other than the top genius of the ninety-ninth batch of disciples of the White Tiger Platoon—Yao Ji!
"This Yao Ji was just as the rumors said—a seventh-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit and a cultivation of the first-layer Martial Highness Realm. Furthermore, there is a mysterious force within his body, which is similar to the aura of the Skyhowl White Tiger."
Qin Nan wore a stern look.
Both Yao Ji and the Second Prince, Song Li, were formidable foes.
Besides that, there was the third person!
Qin Nan took a deep breath and glanced at the third person. With a glimpse, he was utterly stupefied.
The third person was quite chubby, who was holding a chicken drumstick in his left hand while his eyes squinted, giving him a sleazy appearance.
Normally, there would be nothing extraordinary about him, but Qin Nan was able to see his true appearance!
Wasn't this guy...Sima Kong?
Previously, with the copper mirror's aid, he was able to learn the whereabouts of Princess Miao Miao, Tang Qingshan, Gong Yang, and the others. Qin Nan did remember that Sima Kong had become the inner disciple in the headquarters of the Trading Alliance, with a status on par with Lu Jian!
Why was he here? And siding with the Second Prince?
Could it be...
Qin Nan immediately came to a realization.
He finally understood why the First Prince was looking at the Second Prince with great murderous intent. Before this, the First Prince was the one that had been supported by the Trading Alliance.
Now, since Sima Kong was standing beside the Second Prince, it served as an indication that the Trading Alliance had given up on the First Prince and was now supporting the Second Prince!
"Hello everyone, it's been a while."
The Second Prince halted his movements and scanned the crowd as if he were the host of the Mystical Ground Hall, who said with a wave, "The trial of the Dragon Abyss Mystical Ground is about to take place. Do remember to try your best to get a good result in it!"
The words were spoken in a confident tone.
If the First Prince's behavior previously had been him trying to become the leader among the royal siblings, the Second Prince's behavior was an indication that he had already assumed himself to be the leader!
It felt like he had become the Crown Prince with his confidence and verve!
"Second Brother, that's very impressive of you…"
The First Prince withheld the anger within his heart and spoke in a sinister tone while clenching his fists.
However, before he could finish, the Second Prince ignored the First Prince and said while pointing at the people beside him, "Allow me to introduce them to everyone—this is Yao Ji, the Platoon Leader of the ninety-ninth batch of disciples of the White Tiger Platoon! And this is Pang Qiu, one of the inner disciples of the headquarters of the Trading Alliance!"
An inner disciple of the Trading Alliance?
The princes were not surprised by Yao Ji being present here, but Pang Qiu's presence was a different story.
The princes and princesses soon realized the truth and glanced at the Second Prince differently.
Didn't that imply that the Second Prince had obtained the support from the White Tiger Platoon and the Trading Alliance?
"So you're Duan Qing?"
The Second Prince ignored the crowd's gaze and stared at Qin Nan. He did not even look at the Third Prince.
"How impressive of you, Second Prince."
Qin Nan let out a cold grin.
"Of course, but Duan Qing, you did surprise me. I still can't believe that my plan failed." The Second Prince admitted without any hesitation, before he continued, "You'd better not disappoint me in the trial."
Following this, the Second Prince flung his sleeves and placed his hands behind himself. He walked to the center and sat on the leading seat in a magnificent manner.
The crowd was startled.
The expressions of the First Prince and the Ninth Prince became unpleasant.
The royal family emphasized etiquette. Didn't the Second Prince's action imply that he had already assumed himself to be the Crown Prince?
At that instant, a loud roar could be heard all of a sudden, surprising the crowd.
The owner of the roar turned out to be Yao Ji!
Yao Ji wore a hideous grin as he glanced at Qin Nan and said, "It's a sign that you do have some capabilities that allow you to be Zhou Bihua's successor! However, you've caused great trouble for our Platoon Leader! Therefore, I shall cripple you in the trial of the Dragon Abyss Mystical Ground, don't blame me for that."
Following this, Yao Ji twisted his neck left and right, emitting cracking noises and two powerful gusts of wind.
The crowd was astounded.
Such a strong aura from a mere small movement. This Yao Ji was extremely powerful!
The crowd was more shocked by Yao Ji's words. He was threatening to cripple Duan Qing!
The expressions of the First Prince and the Ninth Prince became calmer. Since the Second Prince and the Third Prince were both formidable foes to them, they still had hopes to survive if the two were to compete against one another.
Qin Nan snapped without raising his head.
Threatening to cripple him straight away?
Then he would not show any mercy either!
The crowd was stunned once again. This Duan Qing was even fiercer, who showed no intention of backing off after being challenged, and even snapped back at him with a stronger aura!
"What did you say?"
Yao Ji's eyes slightly widened as a ferocious aura was emitted from his body.
Due to his Martial Spirit, he was extremely hot-tempered. He would even feel uncomfortable when someone gave him an extra glance, and attack the person straight away!
Not to mention that Duan Qing had asked him to piss off under the crowd's gaze!
"What right do you think you have to say that to me? You disrespectful prick, I shall cripple you now!"
Yao Ji uttered a roar and opened his arms. His figure was engulfed in a white glow as he sprang toward Qin Nan like a ferocious tiger. The move was the ancient Martial Art of the White Tiger Platoon: White Tiger Descending from the Heavenly Mountain!
"Vermilion Bird Striking the Heavens!"
Qin Nan's eyes turned cold. How could he back off since this Yao Ji had attacked him in the first place?
Following a clash, he drew out his ancient saber that transformed into an ancient Vermilion Bird flapping its wings and uttering a cry into the sky.
The place was swept with a vigorous force.
The crowd was left in awe. They had not expected the two to wage battle against one another within such a short period of time!
