Chapter 580 - The Completely Unexpected
...In the Dragon Abyss Mystical Ground, at the peak of the Heartbroken Cliff...
The Third Prince, the Second Prince, Longhu, and Yao Ji stared at the pool of blood before them in astonishment. No words could describe their feelings.
In just a few breaths’ time, despite the crazy defense of the Celestial-Devouring Insects, that took someone who had consumed the Dao Liquid the period it took an incense to burn to kill a single of them, they were completely...
Even a seventh-layer or eighth-layer Martial Highness could not achieve such a terrifying result!
But Duan Qing had done it!
Not only had he done it, there was no sign of him panting or his face reddening, as if it was simply an easy task!
“All Celestial-Devouring Insects have been eliminated! Such an impressive achievement! The rest of the ninety-seven Dragon Abyss Fruits are all yours!” The Dragon Abyss Tree let out a loud roar, completely different than his previous calm behavior. “As I’ve mentioned, there is an extra reward for the one who eliminates more than a hundred Celestial-Devouring Insects. Here are a hundred Dragon Abyss Leaves, they are all yours too!”
The remaining ninety-seven Dragon Abyss Fruits descended from the Dragon Abyss Tree into Qin Nan’s hands like rain drops.
Besides that, a hundred light dots were emitted into the sky.
Each light dot was an extraordinary leaf, completely purple in color and sturdy as a rock. A mystical aura could be felt from them.
Although a single piece of the Dragon Abyss Leaf was not as valuable as a Dragon Abyss Fruit, a total of a hundred Dragon Abyss Leaves totally surpassed the value of a single Dragon Abyss Fruit, not to mention the fact that it was incredibly rare on the market!
At that instant, the Third Prince and the others recovered from the shock.
The sight before them served as a sign that the previous sequence of explosions was entirely not a dream!
“Third Prince, catch!”
Qin Nan flung his hand and tossed the ninety-seven Dragon Abyss Fruits into the Third Prince’s hands.
As the outcome of the trial was determined by the number of the Dragon Abyss Fruits, the Third Prince would have to keep the Dragon Abyss Fruits for now.
The Third Prince’s hand shuddered emitting a golden glow to receive the Dragon Abyss Fruits. It was rare to see him losing his ground.
Together with the previous Dragon Abyss Fruit that he had received, that would be ninety-eight Dragon Abyss Fruits in his possession, which meant that the Second Prince only had one Dragon Abyss Fruits!
His result was ninety-eight times the Second Prince’s result!
In other words, he had completely won the trial of the Dragon Abyss Mystical Ground, and from his performance, he would be appointed as the crown prince!
Once he was given the title of the crown prince, it would only be a matter of time before he became the emperor of the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom!
...Meanwhile, at the Emperor’s Audience Hall of the royal palace...
The crowd of ministers stared blankly at the Dragon Abyss Fruits in the Third Prince’s hands.
No one had expected Duan Qing to thoroughly turn the tables after the Second Prince had revealed his plan!
And now, the trial had come to an end!
“Impressive, this Duan Qing is too impressive!”
“The Third Prince is so lucky to acquire Duan Qing’s assistance!”
“Who would have thought that it would come down to this!”
The ministers took turns to exclaim after collecting their thoughts.
Even though there existed some kind of rivalries between the ministers, it was none of their concern for the time being. The moment when the Third Prince had received ninety-seven Dragon Abyss Fruits from Duan Qing, it was done and dusted. The Third Prince was definitely going to be chosen as the crown prince!
While the ministers were expressing their thoughts, they subconsciously glanced at Di Fengyun.
Hadn’t Di Fengyun assembled them there with the Emperor Drum so that they could witness the Second Prince’s victory?
They were quite curious as to what Di Fengyun was thinking at this moment!
Being aware of the crowd’s gaze, Di Fengyun’s expression turned stiff.
He did not expect his plan to fail at the Dragon Abyss Tree despite the effort he had put into it!
Not to mention the fact that the plan had failed because of Duan Qing!
“Platoon Leader Di, thanks for gathering us here with the Emperor Drum, giving us the chance to witness such a spectacular duel.” Elder Wang said calmly.
He felt incredibly pleasant after Duan Qing had turned the tables around, thus he could not help but mock Di Fengyun!
“Elder Wang…” Di Fengyun’s eyes flickered with a hint of murderous intent, before he took a deep breath and wore a cold grin as he declared, “Everyone, the trial of the Dragon Abyss Mystical Ground… is far from finished!”
The crowd was stunned hearing the words, including Elder Wang.
The Third Prince had a total of ninety-eight Dragon Abyss Fruits. It was obvious that he had won, thus there was no doubt that the trial had come to an end.
Why would Di Fengyun say that?
In the midst of their doubts, they subconsciously switched their gazes to the screen, and immediately came to a realization.
...Meanwhile, in the Dragon Abyss Mystical Ground, at the peak of the Heartbroken Cliff!
“Duan Qing, thanks to your help, I’m able to come first in the trial! I will not forget my debt to you when I rise in the future!”
The Third Prince collected his thoughts and uttered the words sincerely.
He clearly knew that it was Qin Nan’s contribution all along.
“Don’t mention it!”
Qin Nan replied with a smile. He had long regarded the Third Prince as his friend. It was natural for friends to help one another, thus there was no need to be overly polite about it.
The Third Prince was stunned, before he burst out laughing. No further words were needed.
“Royal guards! I’m the Third Prince! Although it has only been a day since the trial began, I’ve acquired ninety-eight Dragon Abyss Fruits, thus the victory is mine! It’s time to open the rift and end the trial!” The Third Prince took out the golden badge and uttered a roar in it to transmit his voice.
According to the rules of the trial, the one who had the most number of Dragon Abyss Fruits would be declared the winner!
Currently, the Third Prince had no doubt won the trial, thus there was no need to stay any longer at the Mystical Ground!
“Third Prince, according to the rules, the rift will only be opened after an hour if the trial comes to an end before the scheduled time. The trial will officially end when the rift is opened!”
A roar could be heard coming from above.
The Third Prince raised his head slightly. It was a special circumstance for the trial to come to an end in advance. Therefore, the royal guard would need some time to validify the outcome of the trial before declaring it to have come to an end!
“Duan Qing! Third Brother! Do you really think that’s the end? How naive! This is only the beginning!”
A raging roar exploded, which turned out to be the Second Prince Song Li!
Song Li snapped as a terrifying aura burst out from his and Yao Ji’s bodies.
It turned out that they were planning to rob the Dragon Abyss Fruits within the remaining hour!
“Tsk tsk, naive? Do you really think you two stand a chance against us? Let me tell you, I’ve been tired of you since the very beginning! It’s time for me to teach you a lesson!’ Longhu let out a smirk while gathering his aura.
A great battle was about to break out.
An imperious roar could be heard, which was uttered by the Dragon Abyss Tree!
