Chapter 913 - The Bet Begins
The surrounding cultivators were astounded, as they did not expect the young man with the formidable background to recognize the young man blocking their path instantly.
"Cultivator Cui, aren't you happy to see me?" Qin Nan wore a gentle smile as if he were not aware of his expression.
Cui Lixu's figure shuddered hearing this, who almost burst out cursing.
Weren't you speaking nonsense!
How was feeling happy a possibility!
More like extreme hatred!
"Senior Brother, should I get rid of him? I remember this Qin Nan is a bronze-ranked enemy of our faction!" The two inner disciples whispered to Cui Lixu as they observed his reaction.
Cui Lixu took a deep breath. He clearly knew that the top three geniuses on the Monarch Ranking were quite friendly with Qin Nan, thus it was unwise to harm him, nor would he involve himself in their matters.
If he somehow offended the top three geniuses, he would not be able to bear the consequences.
After all, Qin Nan only possessed a first-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit, thus it was unnecessary to waste his time on him.
Cui Lixu felt better upon having his thought, who uttered a laugh and spoke, "Of course I'm happy, I'm just very surprised. Are you here for the bet? Do you want to join us?"
Saying this, his eyes flickered.
He was not allowed to eliminate Qin Nan, but that did not mean he could not set him up.
Qin Nan accepted with a nod. Even without Cui Lixu's offer, he would still follow them.
City Lord Zhou and the others exchanged glances with one another. They clearly sensed the tension between the two, but why did they… While they were confused, a thought was transmitted into their minds, allowing them to come to a realization.
So that's what Cui Lixu had in mind!
City Lord Zhou and his crew grinned as they glanced in Qin Nan's direction.
Following this, Qin Nan followed Cui Lixu and his crew to the Legendary Hall among the VIP halls. The place was significantly larger, with a pleasant aroma lingering in it. It also had the best location, allowing them to view the entire dojo.
"Junior Brother Cui, Cultivator Qin, I've already given out the order. The battle will be taking place soon. Please give us a few minutes." City Lord Zhou rose from his seat and said.
A moment later, several glamorous women entered the hall and danced elegantly while seducing their guests.
Normally, Cui Lixu would be slightly interested in them, but his attention was focused on his plan of tripping Qin Nan during the bet!
An explosion took place on the dojo.
The noisy palaces immediately fell silent, as the crowd gathered their focus onto the dojo in the center.
The show had begun!
"Ladies and gentlemen, I'll keep this short."
The Second Elder of the Magical Thunder City floated in the air and spoke with a thunderous voice, "The participant in the battle is an outer disciple of the Heaven-Saber Sect, Cui Hao! On the other side, the participants are known as Lei Yi, Lei Er, and Lei San who have come from some Two-Starred Factions! The odds are one and a half to one! You have the period it takes an incense to burn to place your bets!"
The entire dojo was immersed in an uproar as the speech ended.
"I'm betting on the trio!"
"It's a no-brainer! Even though the difference between third-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirits and second-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirits are huge, they are three of them!"
"HAHA, I'm betting on Cui Hao!"
It appeared that the trio was more favored by the crowd.
Cui Lixu's eyes flickered with satisfaction seeing this. He turned toward Qin Nan and said in an indifferent tone, "Cultivator Qin, I forgot to mention, the one taking part in the duel is actually my brother! Why don't we have a little bet between us?"
Cui Lixu continued after a brief pause, "Of course, as his brother, I'll place my bet on him. What do you think?"
It was quite reasonable for him to do so.
"Oh? What are the rules?" Qin Nan seemed to be interested.
The eyes of City Lord Zhou flickered as he observed Qin Nan's reaction.
Cui Lixu laughed and said, "It's simple. Let's make it small, seventy thousand Monarch Crystals?"
Even though Qin Nan had prepared himself, he could not help but raise his eyebrows.
This Cui Lixu really knew how to play dumb. Even with his status in the Heaven-Saber Sect, it was impossible for him to bet seventy thousand Monarch Crystals straightaway.
Cui Lixu immediately mocked after seeing Qin Nan staying silent, "What is it? The Peak Leader of the Human Peak can't afford to bet seventy thousand Monarch Crystals?"
City Lord Zhou's eyes became cold, "Cultivator Qin Nan, it seems like you lied to me a few days ago, and I've always hated being lied to!"
Saying this, the aura of the eighth-layer Martial Progenitor Realm was unleashed from his figure.
"Seventy thousand Monarch Crystals? If you're so interested in the bet, I'm happy to join in!" Qin Nan took a deep breath and said with a solemn expression.
It was as if the seventy Monarch Crystals was quite a significant fortune for him.
He had taken the bait!
Cui Lixu and City Lord Zhou's eyes flickered with a hint of joy.
Right now, they only needed to wait and give Qin Nan a great shock when the outcome was determined!
"Sima Kong is making his move…"
Qin Nan glanced at the message from his badge with a calm expression.
It was obvious that Cui Lixu and City Lord Zhou were setting him up. Anyone else could have realized their intentions, but Qin Nan was never scared of them. His only thought now was to come up with a way to stir a great chaos!
As Qin Nan was busy pondering, the time given to place the bets had come to an end. Four powerful auras landed on the dojo.
The first one to appear was a white-robed young man holding a giant saber in his hand with a smug look on his face. The tremendous force of the Heavens and Earth was leaking out from his figure.
Opposite him stood three masked young men, whose auras were quite extraordinary too.
"The battle begins!"
The elder in the air announced.
Following this, the seals on their bodies were broken, causing four shocking auras to surge into the sky.
Even before the Tribulations were summoned, the sky had already turned dark.
The two hounds and one mouse were extremely terrified.
At that instant, every gaze was fixed onto the dojo.
It felt like a magnificent river had been summoned in the sky, causing a great force of the Heavens and Earth to fall downward toward the dojo, causing it to tremble vigorously despite being protected by the formations.
The terrifying stormy cloud expanded into the surroundings, allowing darkness to devour the whole place.
Lightning sparks were emitted, bleaching the surroundings with flashes while a destructive aura swept the surroundings like a tornado, as if the place had turned into a world of thunder!
