Chapter 843 - The Demanding Elder Hua
The one yelling turned out to be Elder Hua.
"Running out of patience?"
Qin Nan's eyes flickered as he turned around and said, "Elder Hua, what is it? I don't think I've broken any rules."
The crowd was startled too.
What was happening?
Why did the atmosphere between Qin Nan and Elder Hua feel strange to them?
Suddenly, some among the crowd recalled the news about something that had taken place at the Trading Hall ten days previously. Hua Jian had been trying to get the Mentoring Elder to pick on Qin Nan, but Qin Nan had resolved it by displaying a terrifying Martial Skill Talent.
Could it be...
The eyes of the disciples glittered.
"Qin Nan." Elder Hua surprisingly transmitted his voice to Qin Nan in a gentle manner, "Do you know that Hua Jian has asked me to pick on you during the trial? However, I did not follow his request. Qin Nan, judging from the strength that you've displayed, you will surely have a bright future."
"What is Elder Hua implying? Please be clear."
Qin Nan calmly responded.
"Hehe, it's pretty simple." Elder Hua wore a smile as he continued, "I've heard that you've earned over ten thousand Monarch Crystals after selling the Monarch Arts of the Human Peak, right? Recently, I've had my eyes on an artifact, but I've been running short on funds. Don't worry, if you run into any problem here at the Dragon Emperor Clan, feel free to look for me…"
Saying this, he wore a thoughtful expression.
Since Elder Hua was an elder, he was experienced in dealing with situations like this. He would be an idiot to follow Hua Jian's order, thus he had planned to convert Qin Nan himself, so he could get his hands on the Monarch Crystals through him, which would also cause Hua Jian to owe him a favor!
He was confident that Qin Nan would accept his offer.
"Hehehe, Elder Hua, why couldn't you just say that you wanted my Monarch Crystals? I'm sorry, there's no way I would give you the Monarch Crystals. Please ask someone else!' Qin Nan uttered a hollow laugh and replied.
This old man was definitely up to something.
Elder Hua's expression stiffened. He did not expect Qin Nan to reject his offer!
Did he really think that he was the same as Hua Jian?
He was an elder who possessed a great authority!
There were plenty of things he could use to deal with him!
As for the disciples, they glanced back and forth between the two. They clearly knew the two were communicating with their Divine Sense.
However, they were clueless as to the content.
Elder Hua snapped thunderously all of a sudden, giving many a great scare, "In my opinion, there's something fishy about your strength. There's no way you could achieve a unique Martial Sacred Realm with a mere first-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit! Therefore, I now declare that you are prohibited from taking a top-tier spot in the Dao Origin Chamber!"
Qin Nan's face instantly coldened.
The crowd was astounded.
Something fishy? A first-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit?
These were nothing but excuses! It was obvious that Elder Hua was trying to pick on Qin Nan!
"Hehe, Qin Nan, so what if your strength is outstanding, you still won't be able to take a top-tier spot. That's what you get for being so full of yourself…" Xuan Yue was delighted seeing this, with a gloating look.
"Elder, I don't agree with that. What's wrong with a first-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit? I too have a first-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit, but I'm still ranked one thousand three hundredth on the Monarch Ranking. Even those with a fourth-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit are ranked lower than me!" At this moment, Mu Mu stepped forward and spoke in a cold tone.
Many were stunned.
Even Qin Nan wore an astounded look.
This woman had just been targeting him, but she was now speaking on his behalf?
"I'm an elder of the Dragon Emperor Clan, who's in charge of the Dao Origin Chamber. If I say Qin Nan's strength is fishy, that will be the truth!" Elder Hua was feeling troubled, as he did not expect Mu Mu to interfere. However, since the situation had already developed in this direction, he would be firm until the very end!
Mu Mu's eyes burned furiously.
Before she could speak, Bai Xingyang and the other disciple immediately stopped her.
"Elder Hua, you'd better not cross the line."
Qin Nan said with a calm tone, but everyone could detect the murderous intent from his words.
"Cross the line? I'm sorry, I've always been fair and just to everyone!" Elder Hua was not affected by the words. He had decided to teach Qin Nan about the authority that an elder had!
QIn Nan took a deep breath.
It was not his first time encountering something like this.
The only difference was, this time, he was completely alone in the Dragon Emperor Clan.
"Since Elder Hua has spoken so, I'll not take the top-tier spot. I do hope Elder Hua would give me a middle-tier spot!" Qin Nan wore a calm expression. Either way, now was not the time to act ruthlessly. He should compromise for now.
Once he achieved the Martial Progenitor Realm and refined many Martial Trees, he would let this Elder Hua pay!
Xuan Yue and the rest of the crowd were surprised.
Without Qin Nan in the picture, they would have a higher chance of securing themselves a top-tier spot.
Meanwhile, Elder Hua uttered a laugh, "HAHA, Qin Nan, that's funny."
The smile on his face was withdrawn as he wore a stern look and snapped, "As I mentioned, there's something fishy about your cultivation! Therefore, you won't be getting a middle-tier spot. You can only get a bottom-tier spot!"
The disciples were stunned.
They did not expect Elder Hua to go this far.
He had even stopped Qin Nan from taking a middle-tier spot.
Xuan Yue was overjoyed. He was happy to see Qin Nan suffer!
That being said, if it weren't for Qin Nan's identity as an inner disciple, Elder Hua would not hesitate to drive him out from the chamber.
Qin Nan squinted his eyes as a cold murderous aura was unleashed.
This time, he was really infuriated.
He had already compromised, but this Elder Hua still proceeded to pick on him further.
Did he really think he, Qin Nan, was someone that he could bully easily?
"What is it? You're not willing to, are you? If that's the case, just leave!" Elder Hua ignored Qin Nan's murderous aura and snapped.
This was what you get for opposing my will!
"Elder Hua…" Mu Mu's eyes began to emit a dark aura.
She had no idea why she was so furious.
"Forget it." Qin Nan glanced at her as he interrupted her speech. He withdrew his murderous aura and responded with a smile, "Since I'm already here, there's no way I would take my leave. I'll take the bottom-tier spot."
