Chapter 695 - Entering the Treasure Vault, Encounter with the Divine God of Battle
"The trial is about comprehending the sword intent from the slash. Basically, it's a test of Martial Skill Talent and comprehension. Although I'm not fond of saber users, you have won the trial; therefore, the chance to enter the Dao-Seeking Treasure Vault is yours…"
The tone of the Blind Swordsman was filled with unwillingness.
The words were sincerely spoken—he did hate everyone who used sabers.
The crowd collected their thoughts and stared at Qin Nan in great astonishment.
Who exactly was this mysterious young man, that even Wu Hao was no match against him!
Gong Yang let out a relieved sigh and burst out laughing too. This Qin Nan was stubborn as always, not even willing to change his ways slightly and use a sword, but insisting instead to change the sword intent into his own saber intent.
Meanwhile, Wu Hao's expression was extremely dark.
He had been defeated!
He had lost to a nameless cultivator!
Wu Hao's gaze emitted a cold murderous intent. If it weren't for the presence of the Blind Swordsman, he would have instantly used his strongest move to destroy the young man before him.
Zhu Hang wore an unpleasant expression as he recovered from the shock.
He had initially been exceedingly confident that he could enter the Treasure Vault, but he had failed again this time. How was he going to report back to the Leader of the Trading Alliance?
Including the Crimson Blood Ocean, it would be his second time failing a mission!
"Err...cultivator, my name is Zhu Hang. I've got a favor to ask. Is it possible for you to inform me about what is taking place inside the Dao-Seeking Treasure Vault once you've checked the place? Don't worry, the Trading Alliance is willing to offer you anything you like! Besides that, I, Zhu Hang, will also owe you a huge favor!"
Zhu Hang stepped forward and transmitted his voice to Qin Nan with a forced smile.
Since the outcome had been decided, there was no point in him feeling unpleasant. His only choice was to lower his head and ask for the young man's help. Besides, Zhu Hang was quite confident that with the benefits he offered, the young man would definitely accept his request.
Qin Nan was startled.
He did not expect Zhu Hang to come and beg him.
It seemed like this Trading Alliance was really intrigued by the occurrence taking place inside the Dao-Seeking Treasure Vault!
"I'm sorry, I don't know you. Stop bothering me!"
Qin Nan wore a grin and replied.
The smile on Zhu Hang's face instantly stiffened.
Didn't know him?
Are you kidding me? It might be true that not everyone would know who he was, but the geniuses from all factions would surely have heard his name before!
Why would this young man say that?
I don't remember having any conflict with him before...
As Zhu Hang was busy with his thoughts, the Blind Swordsman raised his hand and flicked his finger. A colorful beam landed onto Qin Nan's figure and engulfed him in a colorful glow, just like burning flames.
"You have an incense's duration. Now hurry; if you pass the time limit, you will be killed!"
The Blind Swordsman said expressionlessly.
"Thank you, senior!"
Qin Nan brought his hands together and cast a glance toward Gong Yang, before proceeding straight toward the barrier of the cave without hesitation.
The crowd opened their eyes wide. They wished they could replace Qin Nan's spot and enter the Dao-Seeking Treasure Vault.
The Blind Swordsman said coldly.
His voice was not loud, but it was accompanied by an incredible pressure that no one dared to disobey.
Wu Hao was about to say something when he sensed the sudden burst of aura from the Blind Swordsman's figure. He clenched his teeth and glared at Gong Yang before leaving the place. The crowd of disciples slowly left the place too.
The dojo instantly fell silent.
The Blind Swordsman flicked his finger and fired another sword intent, which covering the dojo like a giant flipped bowl. It was a forbidden aura; even if a grand battle were to take place on the dojo, the people outside would not be aware of it.
"It can't be this guy, right?"
The Blind Swordsman said with a hint of doubt in his voice.
As Qin Nan stepped past the barrier, he safely entered the Dao-Seeking Treasure Vault.
Qin Nan let out a deep breath.
Meanwhile, his left eye, left arm, and his blood began to turn restless as if something was stimulating them. He could also sense a familiar aura summoning him from deep inside the cave.
Inside Qin Nan's dantian, the Disordered Ocean Progenitor and the Crimson Ocean Progenitor who were busy recovering their strength opened their eyes as they became aware of the sudden change of atmosphere. They quickly scanned their surroundings, before wearing astonished looks.
"Isn't this the Dao-Seeking Treasure Vault?"
"Why are you here?"
Qin Nan ignored the questions from the two Marital Progenitors and looked ahead.
With a quick glance, his eyes flashed.
This was not a cave, it was an entirely different world.
The ground was crimson in color, with no visible boundaries. Above him was an endless darkness, as if he had stumbled into a void. Furthermore, countless artifacts were floating above him while glowing mystically, like stars in the night's sky.
Within such a marvelous world...
Qin Nan's figure was tiny like a tree, like a stalk of grass.
This was the Dao-Seeking Treasure Vault!
"The treasures here…"
Qin Nan collected his thoughts after a prolonged period of time. His tone was filled with utter astonishment.
He roughly scanned the place with his left eye of the Divine God of Battle and learned that the number of artifacts was like the number of stars in the galaxy.
Thump, thump, thump...
Qin Nan's heart began to race at that instant.
A magical, mystical, yet familiar summoning could be felt from the deeper region, which was stronger than before.
It was so powerful that Qin Nan unconsciously raised his feet and slowly walked in its direction.
"Crap, kid, what's wrong with you!" The Disordered Ocean Progenitor was given a great scare. Qin Nan looked as if he was a puppet being controlled, walking toward the darkness, taking one step at a time toward his destruction.
Qin Nan collected his thoughts upon hearing the cry. He halted for a second, before resuming his movements.
This time, he was doing it by himself.
The reason being that what lay ahead was not darkness, nor destruction, but...reunion!
