Chapter 935 - Fourth-grade Tian Ranked
"It has been eighty years since the last Monarch Horoscope Contest. I did not expect it to happen so soon." The Dragon Chief collected his thoughts and frowned, with a hint of worry.
"Chief, don't worry. Every time the monarch glow appears, the contest usually happens at least five years later." The Nine-Tailed Monarch Beast was aware of what he was worried about.
The Dragon Chief let out a sigh and placed his hands behind himself, "Not that I'm too worried, but judging from the news about the half-God region, the genius that the legend has foretold is about to be born soon. Now that the Monarch Horoscope Contest is approaching, there isn't much time left for Qin Nan!"
He had never doubted Qin Nan's talents. He believed that with enough time, he would alter his destiny and become a remarkable presence in the Middle Continent!
"Forget it, as you said, we still have at least five years! I'll put you in charge of the Dragon Emperor Clan. I shall head out to find Qin Nan some destiny-altering fortunate encounters!" The Dragon Emperor said as his figure disappeared into thin air.
The Nine-Tailed Monarch Beast wore a thoughtful expression.
...Meanwhile, at the Human Peak...
As soon as Qin Nan returned, the Six-Spirited Dragon Vein and Xuan Yue immediately came up to him, their eyes filled with astonishment.
Had totally overdone it this time!
"Cough cough, I'm going into seclusion."
Qin Nan knew what they were planning to ask, thus he immediately excused himself and proceeded to the Dao Origin Crystal, leaving the Six-Spirited Dragon Vein and Xuan Yue with blank expressions, which were replaced with wry smiles.
"This Immortal Spiritual Fox Fruit seems quite unique, I shall try it out."
Qin Nan quickly glanced at the eight skeletons before taking out the Immortal Spiritual Fox Fruit.
He was quite interested in the immortal aura inside the fruit.
However, a skeletal hand suddenly reached out and grabbed the Immortal Spiritual Fox Fruit.
Qin Nan raised his eyebrows. The skeleton was Xiao Hong.
"You're interested in the Immortal Spiritual Fox Fruit?" Qin Nan squinted and asked.
"Yes...master! It...is very helpful to me!" Xiao Hong nodded and said with a pleading tone.
Qin Nan pondered for a moment before waving his hand, "I'll let you have it then."
Even though the Immortal Spiritual Fox Fruit was valuable, the eight half-Martial God skeletons would never betray him, thus it would not be a loss for him if it would help Xiao Hong's growth.
Xiao Hong's voice became joyful as she grabbed the fruit and devoured it.
The Immortal Spiritual Fox Fruit instantly exploded into countless light dots that flowed inside her bones, causing her body to experience a shocking change.
Qin Nan's heart shuddered.
It felt like he had just seen Xiao Hong transform into a beautiful woman, but when he took a closer look, she was still a skeleton.
"It's most likely her true appearance. Maybe it's possible for the skeletons to be resurrected in the future."
Qin Nan's eyelids jumped.
Once the skeletons were resurrected, they would be half-Martial God Realm experts.
"Let's give them each a stream of Vital Qi."
Upon realizing this, Qin Nan waved his hand and transmitted seven streams of Vital Qi into the remaining skeletons, and gave Xiao Hong two streams of Vital Qi.
After observing the skeletons for a moment, Qin Nan withdrew his gaze and adjusted his thoughts.
"I've earned quite a lot from the trial. It might be enough for the Divine Battle Spirit to rank up!"
Qin Nan took out the storage bags with a passionate look.
He had been looking forward to ranking up to the fourth-grade Tian rank for a very long time!
After counting the storage bags and the Monarch Crystals he had obtained, it turned out that he had robbed a total of forty thousand Monarch Crystals.
That was a very scary figure.
"Time to rank up!"
Qin Nan reached out his hand and shoved handfuls of Monarch Crystals into his mouth.
After consuming thirty-five thousand Monarch Crystals, the Divine Battle Spirit still showed no reaction, causing Qin Nan's forehead to be covered in cold sweat. He continued to devour the rest of the Monarch Crystals.
A shocking explosion took place.
A terrifying pressure appeared like a tremendous tide.
The fourth crimson ray was emitted from the Divine Battle Spirit's back, illuminating the place.
At that instant, Qin Nan was finally considered above average among the geniuses on the Monarch Ranking. In terms of the Martial Spirit's grade, only a few dozens of them were higher than his.
Even in the entire Middle Continent, including the half-God region, he had reached the average standard.
"Phew, about time."
Qin Nan exhaled deeply.
With nine Martial Trees and a fourth-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit, he was not too far away from having the strength of the top three geniuses of the Monarch Ranking!
"Mm? The Divine Battle Spirit is…"
Qin Nan was startled.
He could see the Divine Battle Spirit lowering its head while fixing its eyes onto Qin Nan's face, as if it were staring at him. Its mouth moved slightly just like it was trying to say something.
It was Qin Nan's first time seeing the Divine Battle Spirit talking!
A brilliant glow was fired toward Qin Nan's forehead from the eyes of the Divine Battle Spirit.
Qin Nan could sense a sharp pain from his mind as a terrifying force encapsulated his soul, dragging it out from his body toward a mysterious place.
Qin Nan was dumbfounded.
Why was this happening after the Divine Battle Spirit had ranked up?
He lowered his head after realizing something and saw a huge door standing firmly in the space!
An obscure door with an extraordinary presence!
Qin Nan had seen the door before. It was the South-Heaven Gate of the South-Heaven Sacred Ground. Rumors said that the path behind the door led straight to the Nine Heavens!
However, Qin Nan's eyes were able to peek through the South-Heaven Gate.
An indescribably terrifying figure was standing in the door, without arms or a left eye.
The flesh of the Divine God of Battle!
"Time is running out!"
"Don't forget that I'm here waiting for you!"
The three brief sentences were filled with great anticipation and hope.
Qin Nan's heart skipped a beat.
Time was running out?
Did that mean the flesh of the Divine God of Battle wouldn't have much time to wait for him?
Why was that?
Did something happen?
He tried to open his mouth to ask his question, but failed to make any noise.
Meanwhile, the flesh of the Divine God of Battle, the South-Heaven Gate, and the space disappeared as if they were mere illusions...
A moment later...
Qin Nan's figure shuddered as his soul returned to his body. His eyes sprang open as he panted heavily. His body was soaked in sweat.
