Chapter 881 - Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch
The mysterious crystal case flew out from Qin Nan's storage bag on its own. It illuminated the surrounding darkness with a pure white light.
Following this, a mist-like figure appeared from it.
The old man had a few white hairs on his head, with squinted eyes and a collapsed nose. He was wearing a long white robe, with a few holes on its sleeves. He looked like a beggar from his appearance, a great contrast to his terrifying aura.
"Tsk tsk, so this is what the Ancient Demon Abyss look like…" The old man scanned his surroundings and exclaimed. Following this, his gaze landed onto Qin Nan's figure with a hint of pride, "Even though I can see my young self from this kid's manner, his strength is nothing compared to my young self!"
The surroundings felt silent.
It was unsure what he was being proud of.
"Fine, I won't let you struggle anymore, otherwise you might actually die." The old man shook his head and flickered a golden beam into Qin Nan's figure. His damaged body began to recover at a visible speed.
"At this rate, it might take him at least three or five days to fully recover. No no, that's a bit too long…" The old man stared at Qin Nan for the period it took an incense to burn, before he ran out of patience and snapped, "Wake up!"
A terrifying force was unleashed with the words.
The demonic aura surrounding them was blown away, leaving a huge gap. Under the illumination of the crystal case, the soil with a strange crimson color and rocks were revealed.
Meanwhile, Qin Nan's figure began to shudder violently.
A few breaths later, his tightly shut eyes sprang open.
Qin Nan immediately took a deep breath the moment he recovered his consciousness. It felt like each of his bones had had a nail hammered into it.
"Phew...What happened? Where am I? Am I at the bottom of the Ancient Demon Abyss? Who saved me?" Qin Nan glanced at his surroundings with a confused look. He remembered that he had blocked the attack from the young man, but his body had suffered a severe injury as a consequence. It was impossible for him to recover in a short period of time.
Qin Nan collected his thoughts and realized something when he saw the faint golden glow covering his body. He raised his head and saw an old man wearing ragged clothes and a disdainful expression.
Before Qin Nan could finish, the old man waved his hand and said, "How bad is your alertness? You've already regained your consciousness for three breaths' time and it took you this long to discover my presence? It's fine, after all, you are not as good as I was back in the day. As for who I am? Many people would know me as the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch!"
He raised his head while wearing a prideful expression.
"Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch? You're the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch?"
Qin Nan was astounded, as he quickly caught a glimpse of the mysterious crystal case.
The Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch was already dead, thus the person before him must be his will that was kept inside the case while he was still alive.
Qin Nan immediately rose from the ground to bring his fists together, but he inhaled deeply as his movement caused him to feel the pain from his wounds.
"Your strength is so weak. It was just an attack by a peak Martial Progenitor, and yet you are already this injured? Back in my day… Sigh, a real gentleman doesn't boast about his past achievements." The Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch waved his hand and let out a sigh. A thoughtful expression could be seen from his eyes, "Kid, you're Qin Nan, right? So you're the one that the godly object was looking for?"
"Godly object? That must be me." Qin Nan was startled, before nodding his head.
The godly object that the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch was referring to must be the right arm of the Divine God of Battle.
"Great timing!' To his surprise, the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch's expression changed as he clenched his teeth and snapped, "That asshole forced me to refine it into a saber! As a result, I died before I could even achieve the Martial God Realm! You must be responsible for it! I can't defeat the godly object, so you should pay the debt for it instead!"
The words were uttered sincerely, as if he had held the grudge for a very long time.
Qin Nan was instantly stunned. He did not expect the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch to say that to him.
According to the rumors, didn't the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch volunteer to refine the Heaven-Shattering Saber as a way to challenge himself?
Why did he say he was forced by the right arm of the Divine God of Battle instead?
"Damn, stop wasting my time!" The old man glared at Qin Nan with his eyes open wide and yelled, "Now, hand me the Heaven-Shattering Saber!"
Qin Nan lost his thoughts. What now?
Did this mean the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch was trying to retrieve the Heaven-Shattering Saber?
"Sigh! Why are the kids nowadays so boring? Don't they know that life is like a drama? I was suddenly interested in tricking you, but why didn't you act along?" Seeing Qin Nan's reaction, the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch shook his head in disappointment.
Qin Nan could feel his face contorting. The magnificent figure that once existed in his mind had instantly collapsed!
He never thought that the genius whose name shook the entire continent a few thousand years ago—the mad man who was respected by many—was trying to trick him with an act?
"Forget it, I shall not waste any further time."
The Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch waved his hand and sat on top of a boulder. "Qin Nan, since three hundred years ago, I was confused about your right arm. Can you tell me what it is now?"
"Senior, I've no idea where it came from too. I only know that it is called the Divine God of Battle and has come from the Nine Heavens." Qin Nan still could not react in time after seeing the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch speaking in a serious tone.
There was no point trying to hide the secrets of the Divine God of Battle from the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch.
After all, he was the one who had forged the Heaven-Shattering Saber.
"Isn't that nonsense?" The Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch rolled his eyes, before he inspected Qin Nan's figure carefully. His expression gradually became shocked, "Mm? Your left eye? And your left arm seems to have the same aura as your right arm? Mm? Why is the copper mirror in your Divine Sense...F**k me, the copper mirror and the golden seal, that means there's only one thing left…"
The Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch jumped up in great shock.
Are you kidding me!
Was this for real!
He was the Tribulation of Three Lifetimes?
The Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch gathered his thoughts as his face flushed. His eyes burned furiously as he uttered a groan, "Goddamnit! Are you serious! Back in the day, I roamed across all places including the South-Heaven Gate and the Netherworld River, but couldn't find a single one of them! However, this kid has yet to reach the Martial Monarch Realm, who already has such incredible fortunate encounters, has found two of them, making him her Tribulation of Three Lifetimes! Is this some kind of joke?"
This time, he was really infuriated!
The Tribulation of Three Lifetimes, it was something that he had spent a great effort to find, something he had always dreamed of!
