Chapter 662 - Jiang Bilan's Entry, Confrontation with Zhu Hang
"Mm? Who's that? How impressive."
Qin Nan halted in his tracks while his eyes wore an astonished look. The black-robed person had a ninth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit and a peak Martial Highness Realm cultivation—on par with Zhu Hang's strength—thus he must be in the top fifteen on the Hidden Dragon Ranking as well. That being said, why hadn't he noticed his presence before? Had he used some trick to lessen his presence?
In addition to Qin Nan, the rogue cultivators were stunned seeing this. They had never thought that someone would to dare attack Gong Yang and Yu Luosha!
In the blink of an eye, the black-robed man had arrived before Gong Yang and Zhao Fang. A ferocious aura was emitted from his body, forming a giant vulture that raised its sharp claws and slashed at the duo.
The slash was incredibly sharp, such that even the space was torn apart. Even a peak Martial Highness would end up seriously injured from it.
"Million Flower Art!"
Zhao Fang snapped coldly as countless pink petals were summoned from his palms. The petals seemed to be alive as they instantly intertwined with the vulture's figure and flung it toward the black-robed man. The black robed-man uttered a strange shriek, causing the vulture to explode into thousands of smaller-sized vultures that spread out into the surroundings, forming a cage in an attempt to trap the duo.
"Bing1!" Gong Yang uttered the word expressionlessly. At that instant, following the blowing of horns, illusionary soldiers were summoned, which charged toward the vultures and devoured them instantly.
The crowd finally recovered from their shock seeing this.
"The Lone Eagle! That guy must be the Lone Eagle!"
"Gasp, did Zhu Hang manage to convince him to help?"
"This is getting interesting! Even the Lone Eagle is involved in the battle now."
Gong Yang and Zhao Fang were surprised hearing the comments, as the man before them was the infamous rogue cultivator, the Lone Eagle. They had never expected Zhu Hang to be able to recruit him to his side.
"Hehe, Yang Gong, Yu Luosha, I don't know why you're willing to help Duan Qing, but did you really think I would do nothing to counter it?" Zhu Hang wore a cold grin.
"Do you think the Lone Eagle is able to stop us by himself? I'm telling you—there's no way you will be touching Duan Qing today!" Zhao Fang's eyes flickered with a great murderous intent. Although he had heard Qin Nan's words, when he saw the look on Zhu Hang's face, his only thought was to defeat him with his own hands.
"Who told you that the Lone Eagle was my only help?" Zhu Hang responded with a dark smirk.
Gong Yang and Zhao Fang were startled. There was someone else? Who could it be?
Even Qin Nan who was planning to interfere became curious hearing this.
A strong aura of death rose into the air, transforming into two giant hands that slapped at Gong Yang and Zhao Fang's figures. The duo was immediately startled, as from the attack, they could tell that the person attacking was no ordinary cultivator.
Qin Nan's eyes glittered as he turned around and saw one of the rogue cultivators was engulfed in green flames, which burned away his flesh. A black-robed person slowly appeared among the green flames, whose glamorous eyes were glittering.
The rogue cultivator had been a mere decoy! The person inside it was Jiang Bilan!
Qin Nan's hair danced wildly as a ferocious aura burst out from his body. Zhao Fang and Gong Yang were shocked. This person was Jiang Bilan? How did she become so powerful? Had she altered her destiny?
"It's been a while." Jiang Bilan spoke. Following this, her figure appeared above Gong Yang in the blink of an eye, who softly said, "I'm sorry, my old friend."
She twisted her palm in the direction of the space below her, unleashing the Death Seal that crushed down onto Gong Yang's figure.
"Jiang Bilan, what a surprise! You're still alive! Lin2!" Gong Yang's aura changed tremendously as if he were now an emperor descending upon the place, whose suppression covered the area within ten li. The Lone Eagle uttered a cry and sprang toward Zhao Fang.
The impact from the battle between the four great geniuses swept the surroundings. Each clash felt like an epic battle between gods and demons, stunning the entire crowd.
No one expected the two geniuses to appear out of nowhere all of a sudden and join the battle at the last moment. The battle was utterly thrilling to watch!
"HAHAHA, Duan Qing, what a surprise, right? Fortunately, I was able to stumble into the Lone Eagle and Cultivator Jiang at the Ancient Battlefield! With their help dealing with Yang Gong and Zhao Fang, no one will be able to save you this time!" Zhu Hang burst out laughing as the glow of weapons emerged from his body.
He dashed straight toward Qin Nan's figure.
"Is that so?"
Qin Nan let out a hollow laugh. Even though he was clueless as to why the Lone Eagle and Jiang Bilan were on Zhu Hang's side, a battle could not be avoided now!
Qin Nan charged forward as seven ancient sabers rose into the air from his back, emitting a terrifying saber glow while he gathered the force of the Martial Highness Realm in his body and unleashed the aura of the eighth-layer Martial Highness Realm!
"You've ranked up to the eighth-layer Martial Highness Realm?" Zhu Hang inhaled his breath for a moment. He recalled that Duan Qing had only been a fifth-layer Martial Highness Realm at the Disordered Ocean City! Ranking up three levels within a month?
The cultivators were left in awe.
What kind of fortunate encounter did this Duan Qing find?
"So this is your strength now! It seems like you really are the one that killed the Three Stars! But, does that make any difference? Even if you have a cultivation of the eighth-layer Martial Highness Realm, you're still no match against me!" Zhu Hang collected his thoughts and wore a cold grin. Emperor Weapons were unleashed behind him, and in the blink of an eye, a total of six hundred and sixty-six weapons densely filled the sky.
Countless mystical glows lit up the place.
Zhu Hang uttered a roar as the six hundred and sixty-six Emperor Weapons formed a giant formation under his command in the blink of an eye, which covered the space above Qin Nan like a curtain. A great wave of energy was unleashed from the formation.
The crowd felt like they were watching a titan unleashing its most powerful blow on an ant.
Even if Duan Qing was now at the eighth-layer Martial Highness Realm….he would still die for sure!
"Qin Nan!" Zhao Fang and Gong Yang yelled with shocked expressions.
"Not a problem!"
Qin Nan replied as he raised his head. The Demon God's Robe emitted a sparkle while his left eye flickered thunderously. Following this, his figure charged forward like a godly sword being drawn out from its sheath.
The seven ancient sabers floating behind him executed seven slashes of Aging!
