Chapter 784 - Deterrence
"Demonic Bull Martial Progenitor! We only want the Demonic Flame Flowers! Do you really want to fight us to death for them?" The woman reacted and yelled. Her voice was enchanted with some sort of magic that could awaken one from confusion!
The Demonic Bull Martial Progenitor wore a disdainful look, "How cunning of you humans, would you seriously go this far just for mere Demonic Flame Flowers? There's no way you're getting the treasure on my watch!"
Hearing this, Qin Nan's eyes flickered.
Did that mean there was still some kind of valuable treasure?
Before he could ponder further, the hand seal of the Demonic Bull Martial Progenitor was performed!
Unlocking of the Heavenly Demon!
At that instant, the large figure of the Demonic Bull Martial Progenitor immediately transformed into a middle-aged man with crimson hair. However, the presence of demonic Qi in his body rose rapidly like a surging tide, causing his aura to rise to the sixth-layer Martial Progenitor Realm!
The entire valley began to tremble.
Even Qin Nan's figure shuddered violently as he sensed the overwhelming pressure.
Seeing this, the woman could feel her heart being struck by a heavy blow. She was indeed here for the Demonic Flame Flowers, but to her surprise, the Demonic Bull Martial Progenitor did not believe her.
"You four, form a formation to protect yourselves!"
Despite feeling troubled, the elegant-figured woman immediately uttered the command. The four peak Martial Sacred Realm experts were already scared to death facing the pressure, causing their hearts to be filled with the sense of danger. Upon hearing the words, they immediately collected their thoughts and worked together to construct formation.
"Demonic Bull Spear!"
The Demonic Bull Martial Progenitor glanced down at its opponents from a distance away and grabbed with its hand. The two horns on its forehead exploded in a sudden glow and transformed into a terrifying giant spear, which it threw at the woman without hesitation!
It was as if the world were going to collapse, as if the spear was not just a spear, but utter destruction!
"Flower blossoms with magical sprouting, the Martial Monarch Tree towering over the Heavens and Earth!"
Despite the pale expression on the woman's face, she reacted swiftly as a half-zhang tall Martial Progenitor Tree emerged from her back into the sky. Countless rays of martial will were unleashed, forming a wall that served as a barrier.
As the Demonic Bull Spear approached, the two abilities collided with one another.
The entire valley shook vigorously, before countless rocks exploded simultaneously, resulting in an astonishing sight.
Upon receiving the attack, the woman immediately spat out mouthfuls of blood. In addition to her, the figures of the four peak Martial Sacred Realm experts behind her were sent flying due to the terrifying impact, before slamming into the ground.
Even though the attack was blocked, they were all severely injured.
On the other hand, the Demonic Bull Martial Progenitor was on the verge of collapsing after executing the forbidden technique, but there was still a last hint of energy remaining in its body!
"Die!" The Demonic Bull Martial Progenitor uttered a roar and charged forward.
"Crap…" The woman and the other four cultivators unconsciously tried to unleash their power, but due to their injuries, their bodies failed to respond. They could only watch the Demonic Bull Martial Progenitor approaching them murderously.
The eyes of the woman flickered with remorse.
She had overestimated herself, assuming that she would stand a chance against the Demonic Bull Martial Progenitor while it was at its weakest state!
Do I really have to use that last resort today?
A thunderous yell could be heard, which turned out to be Qin Nan.
"Mm?" The eyes of the cultivators flickered with a glimpse of hope. However, following a glimpse, they realized that he was only a young man, with no sign of the aura of a Martial Progenitor!
The hope in their eyes immediately vanished.
"Get out of here! This is not something you can be involved in!"
The woman blurted out.
"Humans are cunning indeed! To hide yourself all this time spectating the battle! I'll kill all of you now!" The Demonic Bull Martial Progenitor instantly locked its gaze onto Qin Nan. A terrifying aura sprang into the sky that aimed to destroy Qin Nan and the others.
At the last moment, Qin Nan uttered a shocking roar with an expressionless face.
A horrifying monarch aura burst out from his body like a surging tide.
Although Qin Nan had used the Martial Monarch Corpse previously to resist the Tribulation, thus damaging it badly, it still possessed some power, allowing him to use it to unleash a monarch aura.
The cultivators were dumbfounded.
A monarch aura?
Did they see it right?
Was this young man a Martial Monarch Realm expert?
"You——" The Demonic Bull Martial Progenitor's face contorted while it subconsciously felt fear within its heart.
How unlucky for it to stumble into a Martial Monarch Realm expert?
That wasn't right!
This young man might be using a disguise!
"Whether I'm using a disguise or not, the aura in your body is messed up like a swamp. So, do you really want to risk your life to attack? I'm aware that you could at most execute one more attack. However, I have to remind you that your attack won't be able to kill me!' Qin Nan said calmly with a sharp tone, "And once you fail to kill me, I'll be the one killing you instead!"
The heart of the Demonic Bull Martial Progenitor shuddered.
This young man was able to see through its body!
He could even tell that it could only attack one more time!
"Could he really resist my attack?"
The thought crossed the Demonic Bull Martial Progenitor's mind.
As Qin Nan had mentioned, it could risk its life and execute its final attack. However, after the attack, it would be extremely weak, and any Martial Sacred Realm expert could easily end its life!
In other words, if it failed to kill everyone with its attack, death would be its end.
The Demonic Bull Martial Progenitor uttered a roar with bloodshot eyes, "If you dare to come to that place, even if it means death, I'll kill you all!"
With a flicker, it transformed into a black glow and sprang deep into the valley.
For some reason, it did not dare to bet its life this time. Its instincts were telling it that it would never kill the young man before it! As such, it chose to leave the place. However, if these people were to come to the place, it would not be too late for it to put its life at stake!
Therefore, forget it for now. After all, it feared death too.
Seeing this, Qin Nan exhaled deeply. His figure was soaked in sweat.
He had been placing a bet too. If the Demonic Bull Martial Progenitor decided to attack, he could resist it with his left arm of the Divine God of Battle. However, the remaining force would still leave him with a severe injury, thus it was not worth it.
Therefore, he was betting that the Demonic Bull Martial Progenitor would be intimidated and choose to withdraw.
"Did it really leave?" The group of cultivators was stunned, unable to believe the sight before them.
They clearly knew that the Demonic Bull Martial Progenitor was strongly territorial and it would never allow humans to trespass on its territory.
However, they could easily tell that Qin Nan was neither a Martial Monarch nor a Martial Progenitor. How had he managed to drive the Demonic Bull Martial Progenitor away with only words?
