Chapter 940 - Battle Against Xiang Liang
It was a short-haired young man wearing a blue robe, with a smile on his face. His presence somehow felt incredibly friendly, preventing people from wanting to fight against him.
Inside him was a force similar to a Heaven Flame combusting vigorously. Even the left eye of the Divine God of Battle was unable to peek through it.
However, it appeared that the force was sealed off.
"Did he finish inventing the Monarch Art?"
Qin Nan's eyes flickered with astonishment.
The young man was the one whom he had met at the Fire Path Mountain Range, the one that had been inventing his Monarch Art in the strange golden flame city.
Qin Nan managed to exchange a single glance with him.
The battle began very soon. His opponent was a fifth-layer Martial Progenitor from the Bodhi Temple, whose figure was encapsulated in a gentle glow that cleansed the people around him, a somewhat difficult opponent.
The young man reacted calmly facing the approaching attacks, using his finger, fist, and palm at times. A moment later, he uttered a breath that caused the space to explode with strange flames, defeating his opponent.
The crowd was immersed in great shock.
Most of them could not understand what had happened.
"Such an incredible Monarch Art, inserting the flames into the rift unnoticed during the battle, and igniting them in the end, resulting in a great blow. Even if his opponent knew what he was doing, it would be difficult to deal with it as well…"
Qin Nan nodded as his eyes glistened.
This guy was not to be underestimated.
The young man returned to his seat. He seemingly noticed something, and glanced in Qin Nan's direction while bringing his fists together.
"Cultivator Qin Nan, I'm Fang Changqing. Our encounter last time was in a rush and this time, we happen to be occupied with the Ranking Battle. If there's chance, I would like to invite you to enjoy some tea and discuss Martial Arts."
Fang Changqing transmitted his voice with a hint of anticipation.
Qin Nan smilingly responded by bringing his fists together.
Perhaps it was because of their Martial Skill Talent, even though they had only met each other recently, it felt like they had known each other for many years.
The two simultaneously gathered their focus onto the battle taking place on the ring.
It was Tang Qingshan's turn once again, who ended the battle with a single slash, causing a rain of blood to pour down, giving many geniuses a cold shiver.
Meanwhile, Qin Nan soon had his second battle and his opponent was once again a disciple of the Heaven-Saber Sect.
The disciple of the Heaven-Saber Sect was weaker than the previous one, who only possessed a third-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit and a cultivation of the second-layer Martial Progenitor Realm.
As the crowd expected, he was defeated by Qin Nan with a single attack.
Xiang Liang could not help but curse. The disciple was quite close to him, but he did not expect him to stumble into Qin Nan, losing the chance to increase his ranking.
The battles continued to take place. Many participants had already won three battles in a row.
There were also people who had lost three times in a row too, causing their faces to become pale.
Besides, for some reason, the geniuses of the Heaven-Saber Sect—apart from Tang Qingshan—were assigned to battle against stronger opponents. Even Xiang Liang had stumbled into a few eighth-layer Martial Progenitors.
This caused the people of the Heaven-Saber Sect to wear unpleasant looks.
"Is he doing this?"
Qin Nan glanced at the Monarch Envoy as a thought crossed his mind.
The Monarch Envoy seemed to not notice his gaze. However, as Qin Nan lifted his gaze, the dust around the Monarch Envoy shuddered slightly.
What was Qin Nan implying?
He had always been fair and just!
The fourth round soon arrived.
The light screen flickered, prompting the geniuses to take a glimpse at it, including Xiang Liang, whose face immediately turned pale.
His opponent was a fourth-grade Tian ranked, ninth-layer Martial Progenitor.
Ninth-layer Martial Progenitor?
Are you f**king serious!
How do I even stand a chance?
The crowd looked at him with strange expressions. Even Qin Nan chuckled seeing this.
It was quite interesting observing this Xiang Liang's expression.
Xiang Liang collected his thoughts and said while clenching his teeth.
As the battles continued, Xiang Liang glared at Qin Nan and groaned, "I can't wait to see when you're arranged to fight against a ninth-layer Martial Progenitor!"
However, he was stunned when he saw the names on the screen.
Qin Nan's opponent was a disciple of the Misty Immortal Sect, who only possessed a third-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit and a first-layer Martial Progenitor Realm cultivation.
He was the weakest among the participants!
How could this be?
It had been four times in a row!
Qin Nan's opponents had been getting weaker and weaker!
The crowd was startled and glanced at him with a hint of envy.
"This doesn't make sense!" Xiang Liang rose to his feet and snapped, "Why is he fighting against weak opponents, while I——"
However, before he could finish, a terrifying pressure suppressed his figure.
It was from the Monarch Envoy!
Are you accusing me of being unfair? I've always been fair and just!
"I…I'm sorry, I'm sorry!"
Xiang Liang collected his thoughts and immediately apologized, before sitting down in silence.
Even if he were given ten guts, he would not dare to offend the Monarch Envoy. He had only lost his mind due to his anger.
After a few breaths, Qin Nan easily defeated the disciple and won his fourth battle.
As Qin Nan returned to his seat, he could not help but look at the Monarch Envoy speechlessly.
It was true that he was trying to hide his strength, but he never intended to fight against the weakest cultivator all the time. Couldn't he at least arrange some average opponents so he could enjoy the fight more?
The crowd soon forgot about it as their attention was attracted by the following battles.
They had entered the fifth round!
Many geniuses had finally revealed their trump cards, displaying their incredible strength.
Furthermore, there were a few spectacular battles.
For example, Tang Qingshan had stumbled into a demonic genius, whom he failed to defeat with a single slash.
Another round had ended, causing the names on the screen to change once again. Xiang Liang prayed in his heart, "You have to give that stupid Qin Nan a strong opponent. He can't win so easily in the fifth round——"
The names on the screen stabilized.
Xiang Liang and the crowd immediately checked it and were stunned.
Qin Nan versus Xiang Liang!
"Against Qin Nan?"
Xiang Liang's figure shuddered before his face was filled with joy.
The Heavens never mistreated those who had a strong passion!
He finally got what he asked for!
