Chapter 76 - In The Spotlight
Everyone went silent for a long period after seeing Qin Nan’s face, before the whole crowd exploded, their faces filled with great astonishment.
“Qin Nan, it’s Qin Nan. He really came.”
“This guy is so ballsy; he dares to come even when he knew all the disciples, including Senior Brother Ling Zixiao, would be here.”
“Impressive. I’m totally impressed this time. Who among the disciples could be more arrogant than this Qin Nan?”
“In terms of arrogance I’m afraid Qin Nan is considered the most arrogant one among us. He dares to come here facing such terrifying enemies.”
“Tsk, tsk, did you guys realize? Qin Nan’s cultivation has achieved the seventh-layer Body Tempering Realm. Does he really think he stands a chance against Senior Brother Ling Zixiao with his current strength?”
“HAHAHAHA, what a joke. A cultivation base of the seventh-layer Body Tempering Realm; he wouldn’t even achieve the top fifty spots among the new disciples.”
While immersed in the shock, the disciples did not forget to mock Qin Nan, as if he was never worth mentioning in their eyes.
It was because—in their eyes—there was no difference between Qin Nan and a dead man.
Who would think Qin Nan has a chance to survive against Senior Brother Ling Zixiao, the geniuses behind him, and all the disciples?
“Shut the f**k up!” At that instant, Xiao Leng ran out of patience facing the disdainful comments from the disciples, as he furiously said, “You guys keep scolding Brother Nan as trash, why don’t you look for yourself? If you’re brave enough, come out here and I’ll keep you company for the time being.”
Beside Xiao Leng, Chu Yun also let out an attractive smile and said, “If anyone wants to hurt Junior Brother Qin Nan, I’m more than willing to be your opponent.”
As Xiao Leng and Chu Yun voiced out, the exploding crowd immediately went silent.
The disciples stared at them with eyes opened wide and faces filled with disbelieving expressions. They never expected Xiao Leng and Chu Yun—ranked respectively tenth and fifth among the top ten geniuses—to side with Qin Nan and voice out.
Aren’t Xiao Leng and Chu Yun afraid their actions would cause Ling Zixiao to be angry toward them?
At that instant, a seventh-layer Body Tempering Realm cultivator said in a low voice, “Guys, I’m afraid you should all mind your words. If you guys didn’t know, even though Qin Nan only possessed a cultivation of the seventh-layer Body Tempering Realm, he has mastered the Perfection Stage of One with the Saber; he even eliminated Childe Gloomy Rage who was ranked fourth among the top ten geniuses.”
“He’s right; I saw that too with my own eyes.”
“I was there too; Qin Nan defeated Childe Gloomy Rage by himself.”
The disciples who were there competing for the Three-Petalled Golden Lily all shared what they had witnessed as a warning to the remaining disciples.
After hearing these words, they looked at Qin Nan with faces filled with great astonishment once more.
It was unbelievable for them that Qin Nan had mastered the Perfection Stage of One with the Saber, and slain the fourth rank of the top ten geniuses, Childe Gloomy Rage, merely with his seventh-layer Body Tempering Realm cultivation.
Such strength; does that mean Qin Nan’s strength could now be considered close to the third rank of the top ten geniuses?
Not to mention, now that Xiao Leng and Chu Yun—these two geniuses—had teamed up with Qin Nan, it resulted in an intimidating formation.
“Oh? Interesting.” The one speaking at this moment was none other than the main focus of the crowd, Ling Zixiao. He glanced at Qin Nan smilingly and said, “I never expected this trash to master the Perfection Stage of One with the Saber, and manage to kill Childe Gloomy Rage; maybe you do have some capability.”
Ling Zixiao appeared to be reasonable, as if Qin Nan was never his enemy.
The truth was, the moment Ling Zixiao saw Qin Nan, a great sense of joy was felt in his heart, but he soon calmed himself down. With my current strength, and my powerful troops, how difficult would it be to crush this trashy Qin Nan?
Therefore, in Ling Zixiao’s opinion, Qin Nan was already a dead man.
There was no need to panic dealing with a dead man. In fact, he was quite interested to know what was Qin Nan thinking, to accept the invitation.
After Ling Zixiao finished speaking, the crowd who fell silent moments ago was enlivened again.in Nan and kill him.
“Huh? So what if Qin Nan did kill Childe Gloomy Rage? Senior Brother Ling Zixiao alone is enough to slay him.”
“Heh, that’s right. So what if this Qin Nan really is a genius? He has no idea what awaits him after offending Senior Brother Ling Zixiao.”
“Humph, a single word from Senior Brother Ling Zixiao, and I would definitely fight Q”
“Count me in!”
These disciples were the ones previously recruited by Ling Zixiao at the White Jade Dojo. They could not wait to suck his balls by mocking Qin Nan, so Ling Zixiao would be fond of them.
Qin Nan seemed like he did not hear the comments from the disciples; he glanced calmly at Ling Zixiao and said, “Aren’t you the one who understand my capabilities the most?”
The atmosphere of the place turned icy cold with the words.
Especially the group of geniuses behind Ling Zixiao, who all stared at Qin Nan in disbelief with wide open eyes.
They clearly knew what Qin Nan was referring to—the Martial Talent Battle at the Skill Library, in which Ling Zixiao had lost to Qin Nan, prohibiting him from entering the Skill Library for the rest of his life.
Where did Qin Nan receive his courage from to say such thing in this current situation?
Isn’t him afraid of enraging Ling Zixiao?
Ling Zixiao’s face contorted slightly, as a cold murderous intent appeared in his eyes. Before he could speak, Xiao Yunhe, who stood behind Ling Zixiao, let out a disdainful laugh.
Xiao Yunhe took a big step forward, unleashing his tenth-layer Body Tempering Realm aura and stared at Qin Nan scornfully, as he said, “Who gave you, a piece of trash, the right to talk to Senior Brother Ling Zixiao like that? If you’re so brave, fight me; I’ll make sure you are granted a quick death!”
At that moment, Xiao Yunhe’s revealed his imperiousness, threatening to kill Qin Nan with his first sentence.
The crowd was excited upon seeing this.
Who was Xiao Yunhe?
The first ranked among the top ten geniuses, with his cultivation achieving the tenth-layer Body Tempering Realm, the ultimate genius who had gathered them all here with his impressive ability to control monsters.
Even if Qin Nan was quite talented, and able to defeat Childe Gloomy Rage, he had no chance of standing against Xiao Yunhe—death was the only possible outcome.
All the disciples’ faces were filled with disdainful expressions.
They could not wait to see if Qin Nan—who had been so full of himself all this time—was willing to accept the challenge.
In the meantime, under the spotlight of the crowd, Qin Nan calmly smiled and slowly took out a piece of map from his chest pocket and said, “Sorry, my main focus now is to retrieve the locations of the remaining twenty Blue Dragon Badges. I won’t be able to battle you.”
After saying this, Qin Nan hesitated momentarily before saying, “That being said, I’m not afraid of you. It’s just that you are not qualified enough to fight me.”
The words landed like huge explosions!
