Chapter 588 - The Agitated Eastern Continent
The name that had shaken the entire Eastern Continent, one that almost everyone had heard of.
The cultivator that was wanted by the Four Great Factions, with a reward of eight Sacred Weapons and a chance to become Progenitor Wen Dao's disciple.
The mysterious genius from the lower district whose name had swept the Eastern Continent within a single month, prompting countless experts to search for him. However, since he had last appeared at the Ninth City, it was as if he had evaporated, completely disappearing from the Eastern Continent. No one had yet to detect a single trace regarding his whereabouts.
And this infamous Qin Nan was currently standing in front of the crowd?
Everyone—including the Sky-Scorching Emperor—was dazed, as they had never expected to stumble into Qin Nan here, who had murdered the Second Prince.
At this particular moment, the initially intense atmosphere of the Dragon Abyss Mystical Ground was replaced by a dead silence.
Only Qin Nan and Longhu had their eyes open wide.
What the heck was Jiang Bilang planning to achieve by suddenly killing the Second Prince and Yao Ji before Qin Nan could, then pretending to be him with some sort of appearance-manipulating technique?
Longhu stared at Qin Nan speechlessly.
The things that Jiang Bilan had done today did not suit her personality at all. Come to think of it, it seemed like she had been helping Qin Nan from the very start?
Qin Nan was bewildered himself. Since he had first met Jiang Bilan after the trial of the Martial Serendipity Pavilion, Jiang Bilan had been scheming against him viciously for an uncountable number of times.
But why was she helping him now?
A brief moment later, the crowd in the sky immediately collected their thoughts.
"Qin Nan! It's really him!"
"I have checked with my eye-technique and confirmed that he isn't using any disguising technique!"
"Gasp, why the hell would he show himself here!"
The ministers were absolutely puzzled while being astonished, as they failed to figure out the reason why Qin Nan would appear here.
"Cut the nonsense! The Four Great Factions have been tracking me for a long time. Killing the Second Prince is only a warning to you! The Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom had better stop hunting me! Otherwise, I will show no mercy!" Jiang Bilan behaved tyrannically, as if she were actually Qin Nan himself.
"I want him alive!"
The Sky-Scorching Emperor uttered a yell that echoed in the surroundings.
The ministers behind him instantly recovered from their astoundment, as one terrifying aura after another was unleashed, causing the Heavens and Earth to quaver. It was as if a brilliant star had appeared in the midst of a boundless darkness.
At that instant, over ten figures landed on the ground, each with a cultivation of at least the eighth-layer Martial Highness Realm, who all executed their attacks in a terrifying manner!
"Consume life force—Heaven-Returning Teleportation!"
Jiang Bilan snapped as her hands, performed an obscure hand seal. Following the consumption of her life force, a giant illusionary figure appeared from her body and grabbed her figure into a torn rift.
"Crap! He's trying to escape!"
The ministers became enraged while being shocked. This Qin Nan was only at the peak Martial Dominator Realm, but he had managed to execute such an obscure teleportation skill that they had no chance of catching up to.
The Sky-Scorching Emperor let out a roar as his magnificent figure sprang forward while he reached out his hand, which shrouded the entire sky, causing the place to be devoured by darkness. He extended his hand into the rift, trying to pull Jiang Bilan back.
"Consume a hundred years of lifespan!"
Inside the rift, Jiang Bilan spat out her blood essence as she continued to sacrifice her lifespan, which allowed the illusionary figure to grow rapidly while its speed skyrocketed. She was able to flee from the Sky-Scorching Emperor's attack!
The crowd was stupefied.
How impressive of Qin Nan!
He had managed to escape from the Sky-Scorching Emperor's clone! No wonder the Four Great Factions had tried to hunt him down desperately!
"He won't be far! Royal guards, all ministers, the White Tiger Platoon, the Vermilion Bird Platoon, and the Black Tortoise Platoon, listen up! Move out at once! Search all areas within ten thousand li from the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom! Capture Qin Nan at all costs!"
The Sky-Scorching Emperor directly uttered his command, before he tore the rift apart and began his chase.
The ministers swiftly made their moves without hesitation.
Even the clone of the Skyhowl White Tiger and Di Fengyun had no choice but to chase after Qin Nan. His presence was far too great to be ignored. If they were able to capture Qin Nan, they could not imagine the benefits it would bring to them!
On this particular day, the entire White Tiger City was shaken.
Many great authorities could be seen on the streets of the city searching every possible spot, as if they were looking for the greatest criminal of all time.
Following this, through the Trading Alliance, the news regarding Qin Nan's appearance at the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom was spread to the Dao-Seeking Mountain and Wanxiang Pavilion, as if it had wings.
In the Dao-Seeking Mountain, Progenitor Wen Dao, the Wen Dao Elders, and the others were left in awe.
Progenitor Wen Dao immediately commanded all experts of the Martial Sacred Realm and above to head to the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom to search the place thoroughly!
This time, they wouldn't allow Qin Nan to escape!
On the same day, the entire Eastern Continent was disturbed.
"Gasp! Qin Nan has shown himself at White Tiger City, and murdered the Second Prince of the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom!"
"Did you know, all Martial Sacred Realm experts of the Four Great Factions have arrived at White Tiger City!"
"Shit, for real! A mere peak Martial Dominator Realm cultivator is being hunted by every expert of the Eastern Continent!"
"Come, let's head to White Tiger City! If we're able to capture Qin Nan, we're going to be rich!"
A great chaos was stirred in the Eastern Continent.
Countless experts departed for White Tiger City.
The name Qin Nan had once again resounded in the hearts of every cultivator.
However, little did they know that the Qin Nan they were chasing after was Jiang Bilan's disguise with some mysterious appearance-changing technique. It was nothing but a fake.
The real Qin Nan was still in the Dragon Abyss Mystical Ground.
"Who would have thought the trial of the Dragon Abyss Mystical Ground would end like this. I just checked; the entire White Tiger City is now in a huge mess…" The Dragon Abyss Tree exclaimed.
"I know right, this Qin Nan is really extraordinary. I have no idea why the Four Great Factions are so eager to hunt him down."
The Third Prince said.
That being said, he was quite grateful for what Qin Nan had done. If it weren't for him, Duan Qing would definitely be in a great disaster right now.
Qin Nan pondered for a while, but soon shook his head and spoke as he could not figure out Jiang Bilan's goal.
"Senior, here is the Chaos Qi!"
Before Qin Nan left the place, he inserted a hundred streams of Chaos Qi into the Dragon Abyss Tree without any hesitation.
The Dragon Abyss Tree shuddered violently, before it joyfully exclaimed, "HAHA, Duan Qing, I didn't think you had such an abundant supply of Primary Force! I owe you a great favor if I'm able to rank up to the Martial Sacred Realm!"
"Don't worry about it." Qin Nan brought his fists together.
"Come, let's leave."
The Third Prince led the way. There was no need for them to stay there any longer.
The trio then exited the Dragon Abyss Mystical Ground and returned to the Mystical Ground Hall. However, they could only see a few guards standing outside the hall waiting for them.
The reason being that the experts of the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom were currently busy chasing after 'Qin Nan'.
...Meanwhile, the trial of the Dragon Abyss Mystical Ground had complete lost its attraction due to Qin Nan's appearance, including the astounding fact that Duan Qing had managed to survive the attack from the Skyhowl White Tiger's clone...
