Chapter 858 - The Chief Arrives
Qin Nan's hair immediately stood on end, as if he had been placed inside an icy cellar.
Even the aura of a Monarch Beast had no effect on him, thus it served as an indication as to how terrifying the aura of the mysterious lady was.
Qin Nan was left speechless after recovering from the shock.
Apart from asking for Chaos Qi from him ages ago, the person in the copper mirror had seldom shown herself. As such, Qin Nan was extremely confused. Why would she be infuriated when she was described a maniac? In Qin Nan's opinion, the term maniac could be regarded as an insult or a compliment depending on the situation.
"Mind your words!"
The mysterious lady snapped before the copper mirror fell silent.
Qin Nan wiped the sweat off his forehead and shook his head. Either way, he had learned a great deal from the Martial Serendipity Pavilion today. He had also learned that the copper mirror and the golden seal had their own functions.
"As the saying goes, great power comes with great responsibility. Since I've found these two artifacts, I will need to take on some responsibilities when the time comes." Qin Nan's eyes glistened.
The Martial Serendipity Pavilion had once mentioned something about the Tribulation of Three Lifetimes, which was related to the mysterious lady inside the copper mirror.
He had relied on the help of the copper mirror and the golden seal many times to resolve his difficulties. Therefore, he would surely lend a hand when the Tribulation of Three Lifetimes took place.
"Forget it now, the mysterious golden seal is able to absorb the force of the Heavens and Earth to invoke a Tribulation. I need to think of some way to sneak into the Godly Dragon Space when someone is overcoming their Tribulations there." Qin Nan organized his thoughts and immediately made up his mind.
The Godly Dragon Space was the go-to place for the disciples to overcome their Tribulations.
However, most disciples would instantly trigger their Tribulations upon ranking up to the Martial Progenitor Realm. Most disciples who were recruited this year had already overcome their Tribulations, thus he would need to wait patiently.
It was good enough as long as he could invoke his Tribulation.
"Dao Origin Crystal, thanks for your help this time. Consider this stream of Vital Qi a gift." Prior to his departure, Qin Nan flicked his finger and transmitted the final stream of Vital Qi in his body into the Dao Origin Crystal.
The Dao Origin Crystal shuddered violently as a brilliant purple glow was unleashed.
It was as if it were trying to say, This Vital Qi is extremely important to me!
Qin Nan wore a smile and exited the crystal. As soon as he walked out from it, a few whooshes could be heard, which turned out to be two hounds, one mouse, and a furious-looking Xuan Yue.
"AH! Master Qin Nan! Young Master Qin Nan! How could you take this useless wolf as your mount? You should make us brothers your mounts instead! We're only asking for ten streams of Vital Qi, such a great deal…" Yellow and Blacky cried.
The Heavenly Fortune Mouse landed on Qin Nan's shoulder while glancing at the two hounds disdainfully.
Where was your dignity as the Heavenly Fortune Hounds?
Xuan Yue's expression contorted too. He had never seen two hounds begging someone to make them their mounts! On top of that, how dare they call him a useless wolf!
Yellow and Blacky were unaware of their thoughts.
Who cared about their dignity!
Their experiences had proved to them that the Vital Qi was the most important!
Qin Nan snapped and lashed out a kick.
Although he was looking for mounts, he never wanted to wander around while riding two hounds.
"Qin Nan, here is five thousand Monarch Crystals."
Xuan Yue's lips curled upward. For some reason, he felt better after seeing the two hounds failing to get what they had asked for. Calling me a useless wolf? I'm still better than you two hounds!
"Five thousand Monarch Crystals?"
Qin Nan's eyes sparkled. He glanced at the Cultivation Hall and saw the rooms were fully occupied with disciples cultivating with the Dao Origin Qi.
"Master Qin Nan! We have been your faithful servants for a long time! We've witnessed how you've become the Peak Leader of the Human Peak! If you're not willing to make us your mounts, then please let us cultivate inside the Cultivation Hall…" The two hounds rose from the ground and shamelessly went up to Qin Nan while shaking their tails.
"Alright alright, whatever you want…"
Qin Nan waved his hand. He was left with no choice if these two hounds were to act shamelessly.
Yellow and Blacky were overjoyed, and almost had the urge to dive into Qin Nan's arms and kiss him. They immediately headed to the Cultivation Hall to find a vacant spot. The Heavenly Fortune Mouse harrumphed before it landed onto Blacky's head and rode away.
Xuan Yue's aura was close to achieving the Martial Progenitor Realm, thus he too had disappeared after giving Qin Nan his regards.
"I shall devour these Monarch Crystals before heading to the Godly Dragon Space."
Without further ado, Qin Nan proceeded to a hall.
The hall was named the Human Hall, which had been constructed by the Six-Spirited Dragon Vein. Now that the Human Peak was permitted to recruit fifty disciples every year, once the power of the Human Peak grew stronger, the Human Hall could be used as a place to discuss matters, etc.
As soon as Qin Nan entered the hall, he was astounded.
There was a figure standing inside the hall.
Qin Nan immediately unleashed his left eye, which emitted a purple glow. With a glimpse, he frowned.
The reason being that he was unable to see the features of the figure clearly.
It was as if the person was non-existent.
"An impressive eye-technique, but it's useless against me," The figure said in a calm tone, "Allow me to introduce myself, many call me the Dragon Emperor."
Qin Nan was stunned, before he quickly collected his thoughts.
Apart from the mysterious half-God region, there was only one person who would be called the Dragon Emperor.
The person was none other than the chief of the Dragon Emperor Clan!
"I'm Qin Nan. Greetings, chief!"
Qin Nan responded and brought his fists together. His expression was filled with a hint of doubt.
This figure was the chief in person without a doubt. However, what was he doing there at the Human Peak?
"I'll keep it simple." The Dragon Chief's tone remained calm, with a hint of imperiousness, "Seventh Brother has given you the inverse scale and the dragon blood to cleanse your flesh so you would come to the Dragon Emperor Clan. The reason behind that was that he was instructed by the Heavenly Fortune Clan to look for someone, who is extremely important to the beast race."
"Heavenly Fortune Clan? Beast race?"
Qin Nan was startled.
"I'm sure that you've heard of the Heavenly Fortune Clan. As for the beast race, it's not only referring to the Dragon Emperor Clan, but every single beast who possess extraordinary bloodlines in the Canglan Continent! The Beast Gods residing at the Beast God Forbidden Area in the half-God region belong to the beast race too."
Qin Nan was dumbfounded hearing the words.
If he was referring to the entire beast race of the Canglan Continent, including the Beast Gods who had reached the Martial God Realm, the scale of the entire thing would completely surpass his imagination!
Despite the Dragon Emperor's blurred figure, Qin Nan could clearly sense his eyes emitting a brilliant glow, "Qin Nan, I don't believe the Heavenly Fortune Clan, but our beast race is running out of time too. Therefore, I'm here today to test you personally!"
The Dragon Emperor's voice paused for a moment.
"If you pass the test, the Dragon Emperor Clan will be your shield. As a matter of fact, the entire beast race will support you!"
"But, if you fail the test...
The eyes of the Dragon Emperor emitted a cold flicker.
