Chapter 872 - Move Like Thunder, Fight Like Fire
At that instant, the two inner disciples of the Heaven-Saber Sect were so utterly terrified that they began to stutter.
Qin Nan's lip curled upward as he unleashed a tremendous battle intent.
With a thought, the six Martial Trees emitted a brilliant glow and pressed forward with pure progenitor force without the need to unleash any Monarch Arts.
BANG BANG BANG!
A series of explosions took place.
The Martial Trees of the two geniuses were instantly knocked flying, as their strength was completely overwhelmed. The Martial Spirits and saber intent unleashed by the two geniuses were also crushed into pieces by the impact, while the remaining force struck their bodies without mercy.
Their figures were sent flying as they spat out mouthfuls of fresh blood.
A single attack had left them severely injured!
This was the strength of six Martial Trees combined!
Qin Nan's heart was filled with a hint of joy as his eyes burned passionately.
Since the path Qin Nan had taken was nothing the world had seen before, he was clueless as to his actual strength. He was not disappointed after witnessing it for the first time.
Defeating two third-layer Martial Progenitors with his mere cultivation of the first-layer Martial Progenitor Realm!
"Death is unavoidable in battles between cultivators. Since you two have always tried to kill me, there's no way I would let you go alive after showing you my true strength!" Qin Nan stared at the duo and attacked with his six Martial Trees.
Now was not the time to be merciful.
Otherwise, if the secrets regarding his six Martial Trees were to be made known to the public, the entire Canglan Continent would be astounded, attracting the attention of countless authorities. When that happened, his life would no longer be in his control.
In the nick of time, the two geniuses collected their thoughts, took out a transparent orb and pinched it into pieces. A terrifying saber intent exploded from it, which was stronger than the strength of the third-layer Martial Progenitor Realm.
It turned out that each inner disciple of the Heaven-Saber Sect possessed a Heaven-Saber Orb as a safety measure in life-threatening situations.
Yang Song screamed as he and Xia Hao executed a forbidden technique that encapsulated their figures with a crimson saber intent, dragging them toward the exit at a rapid pace.
"First form of the Divine God of Battle, Unrivaled Warrior! Destroy it!"
Qin Nan let out a roar as his battle intent rose rapidly while exerting his strongest power.
It was as if the six Martial Trees had transformed into an enormous ancient dragon, which uttered a roar and collided into the two saber intents.
Following a loud crash, the saber intent unleashed by the Heaven-Saber Orbs were shattered.
The impact of the collision swept into the surroundings, smashing the hall and the rocks into pieces. Meanwhile, the shockwave knocked Yang Song and Xia Hao to the ground, inflicting damage to them once again.
The impact from the attack was enough to prevent their escape.
"Qin Nan, we are the inner disciples of the Heaven-Saber Sect, ranked over two thousand on the Monarch Ranking. Our master is an elder of the Heaven-Saber Sect too. If you were to kill us here, our master and the Heaven-Saber Sect would never forgive you!" Yang Song's face became pale as he blurted out, "Don't you worry, we will swear in the name of the Heavens that we will never tell anyone what happened today…"
Before he could finish, Qin Nan snapped coldly.
Feeling regretful now?
"Qin Nan, you…" Yang Song and Xia Hao trembled in fear, especially the former who suddenly burst out laughing as if he were aware of his ending, "Since you insist on killing us today, don't blame me for showing no mercy! I'll notify our sect about the fact that you possess six Martial Trees! The authorities of the Middle Continent will all come to hunt you down, HAHAHA!"
Yang Song had completely lost his ground.
He knew that his death was inevitable, thus he had decided to drag Qin Nan along too.
Qin Nan smacked the duo's skulls without mercy. The enormous impact immediately shattered their bodies into pieces.
Yang Song's eyes widened, but he managed to open his mouth and spit out a drop of his blood, which combusted in the air and transformed into an illusionary talisman that fired into the distance.
It was a hidden technique of the Heaven-Saber Sect, which required the caster to pay a great price to transmit a message!
Qin Nan controlled the six Martial Trees to rise into the air and unleash an enormous progenitor force into the rift, trying to seal the place off to prevent the talisman from escaping.
However, a shocking sight took place.
The talisman passed the barrier with ease and flew into the distance.
Qin Nan raised his eyebrows.
"HA….HAHA...QIn Nan...the talisman...is unstoppable…even a tenth-layer Martial Progenitor...would have difficulty stopping it…" Upon seeing this, Yang Song uttered a mocking laugh.
"Is that so?"
Qin Nan's gaze sharpened as his right arm exploded into a long saber.
Holding the Heaven-Shattering Saber, Qin Nan slashed at the rift.
The terrifying saber intent surged forward like a raging tide and destroyed the talisman.
"Heaven...Heaven...that's the Heaven…" Yang Song's figure began to shudder violently, as if he had just witnessed the most unbelievable thing in the world. In the end, before he could finish his words, the life force in his body had depleted.
Qin Nan let out a sigh.
The six Martial Trees and the Heaven-Shattering Saber were withdrawn. His battle intent entirely dissipated too.
"It seems like my limit is against ordinary fourth-layer Martial Progenitors for now. If I were to fight against a stronger fourth-layer Martial Progenitor, I would need to use all of my capabilities to secure a win for myself." Qin Nan murmured upon sensing the fatigue from his body. He had gained a clearer understanding of his strength.
Although the six Martial Trees were extremely powerful, using them in a battle was relatively energy-consuming.
"Mm? These two guys are inner disciples of the Heaven-Saber Sect. They must have something useful on them!" Qin Nan's eyes flickered when a thought crossed his mind. He reached out his hand and picked up the storage bags.
It had been a while since he had done something like this.
Currently, he was in need of Monarch Crystals, thus he would not allow himself to miss any opportunity of acquiring some of them.
"Let's take a look at the situation outside!"
Qin Nan unleashed his left eye and looked toward the valley. His face was filled with astonishment when he took a glimpse of the situation. To his surprise, the eight cultivators of the Crimson Bald Eagle had temporarily boosted their strength with some extraordinary method.
As a result, Lin Miaoke, Ding Buhui, and the others were struggling in the battle.
"I will head out now!"
Qin Nan did not check the contents of the storage bags. He carried the two corpses and headed toward the exit.
