Chapter 886 - Back to the Wuliang Mountain
"Mm? What's happening?" Qin Nan's eyes glittered. Before he had the time to take a closer look, a strange force encapsulated his figure and teleported him away.
As he left, the three intents of the Divine God of Battle floating in the air uttered soft laughs.
The laughter was filled with a hint of gratification and confidence.
The illusionary figure of Sacred Leader Qinglong brought his fists together before the three figures vanished.
Qin Nan's consciousness returned to his body.
"Was it an illusion? No, that wasn't the case! The path was actually the Ancient Demon Path that will lead me to the legendary Nine Heavens!" Qin Nan's eyes flickered. However, there were a few confusing questions—Why was he the only one that entered the drawing even though he had entered the temple with the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch?
Could I really proceed to the Nine Heavens with a mere cultivation of the first-layer Martial Progenitor Realm?
"Damn it, you're back. You almost had me scared to death!" The Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch let out a relieved sigh after seeing Qin Nan return. He had almost lost his mind when he saw Qin Nan stepping onto the Ancient Demon Path.
"Senior…" Qin Nan was about to say something when the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch waved his hand and said, "It's fine, our trip here to the Ancient Demon Abyss has come to an end. You won't have any trouble finding your way out from here. My time is running out, so let's focus on the matter on hand."
Qin Nan straightened his face.
"The artifact in the crystal case is named the 'Mountain-Suppressing Godly Orb', one that I've refined in the past. It has extraordinary power. You will know when you place it inside the Human Peak." The Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch said with a grin.
"The Mountain-Suppressing Godly Orb? It can be merged with the Human Peak?" Qin Nan's eyes flickered as great anticipation arose within his heart.
The Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch was considered a legendary refiner. He might even be the best in the entire Canglan Continent.
"Mm, I've got some advice for you too." The Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch wore a thoughtful expression, "Firstly, try not to use the Heaven-Shattering Saber too often. Secondly, the same goes for the Six Martial Trees in your body, until you've reached the Martial Monarch Realm, or in dire circumstances."
Saying this, the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch hesitated before whispering, "Breaking the rules of cultivation might be good or bad. I believe you know about the half-God region, if your secrets are exposed, you couldn't imagine how hard they will try to kill you!"
"Before reaching the Martial Monarch Realm?"
Qin Nan's eyes glistened.
He had thought about it before, thus he had decided not to reveal his six Martial Trees easily. However, judging from the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch's tone, it was more serious than he had initially imagined.
"Mm, keep that in mind, otherwise, no one will be able to save you." The Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch said, before he wore a grin as a sudden thought came to him, "I'm quite impressed with your performance. Consider this a compliment."
The Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch reached out his palm and tapped at the eight skeletons, firing eight magical talismans into them.
BANG BANG BANG…
Explosions took place within the eight skeletons, causing them to emit a magical aura, as if they were alive, but there was no sign of consciousness in them.
"Did the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch refine the eight skeletons?" Qin Nan was startled seeing this.
"That's right, I've refined them into skeleton soldiers. Even though they do not possess their own intelligence, they are capable of fighting." The Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch chuckled, "These are eight half-Martial God skeletons. Although their power is not as strong as before, you can still awaken their strength one day if you continue to refine them."
"Half-Martial God skeletons?" Qin Nan was dumbfounded.
Meanwhile, the entire temple and the dojo began to tremble.
"Shit, this place is about to go down. What does the Ancient Demon Path want exactly? Crap, it's been so many years since I last talked with somebody. I was planning to enjoy my time more, forget it!" The Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch turned toward Qin Nan and yelled, "Kid, work hard! I'll escort you out!"
Hearing this, Qin Nan quickly reached out his hand and stored the eight skeletons into his storage bag.
The Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch's will exploded into a white glow that encapsulated Qin Nan's figure and flew into the distance.
As soon as they left, the dojo and the temple crumbled.
Inside the Ancient Demon Abyss, countless beings and demonic existences took a peek with their Divine Sense and were astounded. Obviously, they did not expect that sacred place to shatter into pieces one day.
However, without Qin Nan and the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch knowing, after they left, an ancient voice appeared in the midst of the explosion.
Qin Nan did not encounter any danger after leaving the Ancient Demon Path.
Half an hour later, the darkness before him cleared, replaced by the sunlight from above.
He had left the Ancient Demon Abyss and returned to the Skycloud Mountain Range.
"Senior, thank you! I'll remember your words."
Qin Nan took a deep breath and brought his hands together staring into the sky.
Although the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch was kind of unique in terms of his personality and appearance, Qin Nan clearly knew that he had taken good care of him during their time together. Otherwise, he might not be able to find his way out.
"For some reason, I felt different after the trip to the Ancient Demon Abyss."
A moment later, Qin Nan withdrew his thoughts and inspected his body.
It was not because he had acquired incredible loot from his adventure. It felt like something in his heart had been cleared.
"Forget it, I should send a message to them." Qin Nan took out a badge and transmitted his voice to the Third Prince. He had left for quite a while, thus they must be worried about his safety.
He quickly received a response.
Qin Nan was intrigued after reading it.
"Qin Nan, come back to the Wuliang Mountain at once. I won't be able to suppress the Law-Defying Qi any longer!"
Unable to suppress the Law-Defying Qi?
Qin Nan's eyes flickered as he murmured, "It seems like the Third Prince has successfully altered his destiny. However, it seems like he had purposely suppressed the Law-Defying Qi for me? This guy…"
Qin Nan shook his head and headed straight for the Wuliang Mountain.
