Chapter 686 - Agreement
The cold words caused the faces of the Crimson Blood Progenitor and the Disordered Ocean Progenitor to turn pale white. A great look of terror could be seen in their eyes. The pressure that they had experienced from the mirror was like nothing they had ever experienced before.
Even the aura of the Martial Monarchs whom they had faced before was incomparable to it!
"Was that from the copper mirror…"
Despite being immersed in great fear, the Martial Progenitors swiftly reacted with astounded looks. A few seconds ago, they thought the copper mirror was only an ordinary artifact. Besides, why would an eighth-layer Martial Highness Realm kid possess such a horrifying artifact?
At that instant, a cold murderous intent could be felt coming from the Nine Heavens.
Mainly because, since the copper mirror had placed itself in Qin Nan's Divine Sense, there would always be some ignorant idiots who thought they could devour Qin Nan and infiltrate his Divine Sense, disturbing her peace. Did these idiots ever learn?
Therefore, this time, the copper mirror was committed to murder the intruders!
"Senior, we didn't mean to disturb you. Please show some mercy…"
The Martial Monarchs panicked as they gathered their thoughts. If the copper mirror attacked them, there was no doubt that their wills would be completely destroyed. They finally had the hope to come back to life, thus they were not willing to die just like that.
The copper mirror paused for a moment before it withdrew the murderous aura and snapped coldly.
A terrifying force struck the two Martial Progenitors like a giant hand, slapping them out of the Divine Sense, out of Qin Nan's body, where they collided with the rock before him, resulting in a series of explosions.
Qin Nan let out a sigh as he saw the two flying figures. These two Martial Progenitors, of everyone they could have met, they insisted on offending the copper mirror, how idiotic!
Within the plumes of dust, the figures of the Martial Progenitors rose from the ground and uttered a few coughs. Their materialized bodies had become blurry once again, as if they were going to revert back to their unconscious states. They were not killed by the attack, but it had inflicted serious damage to them.
"Seniors, why aren't you attacking now?" Being able to witness the misery of the two Martial Progenitors was quite a pleasant feeling for Qin Nan, who proceeded to mock them in an indifferent tone.
"Uhh…" The faces of the Martial Progenitors instantly reddened.
They finally came to a realization at that moment.
A young man with a supply of Chaos Qi and who was being protected by such a terrifying copper mirror would definitely have a formidable background. They clearly knew that reaching the Martial Progenitor Realm did not necessarily give you the right to do whatever you like, as there were more terrifying presences above the Martial Progenitor Realm.
"Cough cough, kid, what's your name?" The Disordered Ocean Progenitor let out an awkward smile and brought his fists together, "I apologize for our misbehavior. I hope you will forgive us."
Beside him, the Crimson Blood Progenitor hesitated for a while, before bringing his fists together as well.
A true man could bow and submit or stand tall when needed. Besides, this young man was no ordinary cultivator, and had saved their lives as well. They should treat him equally instead of positioning themselves highly.
"I'm Duan Qing." Being aware of their change of attitude, Qin Nan nodded his head and spoke. He had always been respectful toward his seniors, unless they were not worthy of his respect, even if they were Martial Progenitors.
"Duan Qing, your sharp firm nose bridge, shiny forehead, and plump earlobes are signs of an extraordinary talent," The Disordered Ocean Progenitor smilingly said, "Everything that happened was just a misunderstanding. Now, we would like to cooperate with you. We would not hesitate to offer any ancient Martial Skills or treasures as long as you're willing to give us some Primary Force in return…"
"Mm." The Crimson Blood Progenitor nodded.
Upon hearing this, Qin Nan was quite intrigued. The two Martial Progenitors definitely had insights about cultivation and Martial Skills. If they sincerely wanted to help, it would bring great benefits to him.
"I'm sorry, Seniors. I don't think I'll be needing any more ancient Martial Skills. I've learned plenty…" Qin Nan raised his hand and flames, lightning, and saber intent arose on his palm, which combined into a mystical glow as a tremendous force was unleashed.
"Mm? Such an outstanding power!"
The two Martial Progenitors were astounded. They had never seen a Martial Skill that was able to combine a few forces into one. Even the ancient Martial Skills they had mastered were uncomparable with it.
"So…" Qin Nan paused his sentence.
The Martial Progenitors collected their thoughts with complicated looks. This Duan Qing had given them too many surprises. Apart from the outstanding artifact, he also had an incredible Martial Skill. In that case, what else could they offer?
"Uhh, kid, we're impressed. However, we've been to many forbidden areas in the Eastern Continent, including the Heavenly Fortune Path, thus we might have some information that you are interested with. Besides, if we recover our strength, we can help to get rid of your enemies…" The Crimson Blood Progenitor rolled his eyes and blurted out.
"That's right." Qin Nan nodded with a calm smile.
The Crimson Blood Progenitor cursed in his heart and smilingly said, "How about this; you will give us a hundred streams of Chaos Qi each day. On top of that, we will offer our assistance at the price of three thousand streams of Chaos Qi each time…"
Saying this, the Crimson Blood Progenitor stared at Qin Nan's expression carefully. He wanted to know if this young man was able to supply them Chaos Qi abundantly, as the amount of Chaos Qi they needed to fully recover their strength was enormous.
"As for Chaos Qi, I can get as much as I like." It was as if Qin Nan were able to read his mind, who cleared up the Crimson Blood Progenitor's thoughts straight away, before he continued, "As for the price you mentioned? No way am I going to agree to that. I will at most give you a thousand streams every time you lend a hand, and ten streams each day."
"What? That's unacceptable!" The Martial Progenitors screamed. At this rate, how long would they need to wait until they could recover?
"Then I guess the deal is off."
Qin Nan turned around and left.
The Chaos Qi was so precious that he could only acquire them by communicating with the ancient world through his left eye. He was probably the only one that could do so, thus he was confident that the Martial Progenitors would not reject his offer. Besides, he had shown his sincerity with the price given.
As he thought...
The Martial Progenitors clenched their teeth as a sudden thought crossed their mind, "We...we agree!"
The Martial Progenitors felt extremely gloomy upon saying this as they recalled how highly respected they had been in the past, and now they were being manipulated by a mere Martial Highness cultivator. Furthermore, they immediately made up their minds that once they regained their strength, regardless of this Duan Qing's identity, they would surely teach him a lesson.
"Nice doing business with you."
Qin Nan wore a grin.
The wheel of fate had begun to spin at that instant.
Little did the two Martial Progenitors know that such a coincidental encounter and cooperation would grant them the chance to participate in that grand battle between the Heavens in the future.
