Chapter 910 - An Unexpected Outcome
Qin Nan turned around.
A terrifying thunderous sword and a thunderous spear floated above the dojo with a destructive aura, which were planning on crushing the entire place into pieces. Following this, the Tribulations were infuriated as if they were aware of each other's presence.
It turned out that the Tribulations had assumed each other to be interfering with their own processes.
Following a loud explosion, the thunderous sword and spear collided into one another, resulting in a great flash. Slashes and thrusts of the sword and spear were executed at an outstanding pace, clashing into one another and causing the entire dojo to shake vigorously.
The sight of the battle was epic, giving the cultivators a shocking impact to their souls, causing their scalps to go numb from the excitement.
The crowd cheered.
The combination of fear and excitement caused their blood to boil.
"A battle between the forces of the Heavens and Earth is indeed quite interesting. However…" Qin Nan's lips curled upward as the golden seal appeared with a thought.
"Mm?" Sima Kong who was spectating the battle turned his head around as if he was aware of something. However, as he got a glimpse of the object, he found himself fixated while his hands began to tremble.
As the successor of the Emperor of Thieves, he was quite familiar with artifacts, thus he clearly knew information about the golden seal floating in front of him.
Qin Nan ignored his reaction as he inserted his progenitor force into the golden seal. A magical absorption force was emitted, which took the shape of two giant hands that flew toward the dojo.
At that instant, the force of the Heavens and Earth of the two Tribulations were rapidly absorbed.
The two female cultivators on the dojo were startled, as their eyes flickered with confusion.
Why did the strength of the Tribulations weaken all of a sudden?
However, they did not overthink it. They assumed it to be the assistance from the Magical Thunder City.
Several breaths later, on top of the two female cultivators, the spectators came to the same realization too. Even though the power of the thunderous sword and spear remained the same, their outlines became somewhat blurry.
Qin Nan shook his head and stopped the golden seal.
"I've only absorbed a small amount of the force of the Heavens and Earth from the battle. At this rate, even including the grand bet taking place in ten days, I won't be able to collect enough force of the Heavens and Earth…" Qin Nan frowned.
He could not unleash the golden seal's full strength. Otherwise, not only would it harm the cultivators, it would result in chaos too.
Therefore, he had no choice but to limit the force of the Heavens and Earth he could acquire.
"I'll wait until we learn the truth about the rare artifact of the Magical Thunder City. If necessary, we'll carry out the plan earlier. Otherwise, I'll stay longer here at the Magical Thunder City."
Qin Nan's eyes flickered as he switched his focus onto the dojo.
The minor change of the Tribulations was not a concern for the spectators, as the battle approached its climax.
The thunderous sword and spear continued to clash with one another, a spectacular sight for the cultivators.
However, the first genius suddenly took out a crystal from her storage bag. She spat out three drops of blood onto the crystal, causing it to burn and emit a glow.
The thunderous spear above her began to expand as if its strength had been boosted, giving it a more terrifying appearance.
"You…" The second genius's expression was twisted.
"Damn, how dare she rely on external support in a fair battle!"
"Shameless! Utterly shameless!"
"Even though the Magical Thunder City did not state the rules, no one has ever relied on external support in a battle like this!"
Cursing voices could be heard.
However, a surprising occurrence took place.
The second genius wore a dark expression as she waved her hand and took out an ancient talisman. After inserting her progenitor force into the talisman, it combusted instantly.
The strength of the Tribulation above her expanded rapidly, completely surpassing the strength of her opponent's Tribulation.
It was something that she had prepared before the duel, but she had been waiting for the first genius to make the first move.
As such, it would be reasonable for her to use her method without infuriating the crowd.
In terms of scheming, the first genius was no match against her.
As she thought, most of the cultivators cheered for her.
Especially those who had placed their bets on her.
Judging from the situation, it was highly possible that the second genius would win the battle!
"Even though I have no personal grudge against the two cultivators, since I've placed my bet on the second genius, I'll have to help the first genius secure the victory for my plan to work out…" Qin Nan's eyes flickered.
With a thought, he activated the golden seal.
The grin on the second genius' face froze all of a sudden.
What is happening, why is the strength of my Tribulation dropping rapidly?
The cultivators were taken by surprise too.
Even Elder Huo was startled. What happened today was extremely strange, and it had occurred twice in a row.
The eyes of the first genius flickered with hope as she immediately challenged her Tribulation in order to provoke it for it to unleash its full power.
Following this, the battle became one-sided.
The first genius had won the battle.
The cultivators burst out cursing.
The sudden change in the battle was too extraordinary.
"Qin Nan, were you using the golden seal to control the Tribulation?" Sima Kong blurted out.
"Mm, do you know what it is?" Qin Nan asked curiously.
"All I know is that the person who refined it was too impressive. The method they used to refine this golden seal only exists in the legends. Even the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch was unable to do it…" Sima Kong said with astonishment.
"I've no idea about its background either."
Qin Nan shook his head.
They left the dojo after the battle ended.
For the next few days, Qin Nan and his crew waited for the Ancient Royal Bugs while participating in the bets every day. To avoid the City Lord's suspicion, Qin Nan had decided not to win every single bet. He purposely lost three out of the five bets, but he had placed a bigger stake for the two bets that he had won, which earned him fifteen thousand Monarch Crystals.
On this particular day…
"Qin Nan, the Ancient Royal Bugs responded!" Sima Kong was overjoyed as he sensed something.
"Mm?" Qin Nan was startled.
He had continued to collect the force of the Heavens and Earth for the past few days, but it was too little to be helpful.
The news from the Ancient Royal Bugs was more important to him!
…In the Magical Thunder City, the City Lord's Mansion…
"Mm? What's going on? Why is he here?"
City Lord Zhou glanced at the badge and was immersed in great shock.
