Chapter 948 - There Are Always People More Talented Than You!
…The Seclusion Dojo…
As time gradually passed, the three geniuses suffered great pain after being hit continuously by the Beast-Hitting Stick, but their auras also grew stronger instead.
The reason being that Qin Nan was not simply hitting them with the stick; he was helping them overcome their weaknesses in the process.
"As expected of the three geniuses, to be able to endure for so long. Impressive determination. The other beasts would have given up long ago due to the pain…" Qin Nan's eyes flickered with astonishment.
They were like solid rocks, remaining still despite being swept by a thunderstorm.
"One final attack!"
Qin Nan took a deep breath as he straightened his face and switched the Beast-Hitting Stick to his right hand.
A shocking saber intent was emitted, as if it were capable of shattering the Heavens.
Ao Cangtian, Jiu Jiu, and Yang Qi were astounded after sensing the sudden chill in the air.
"If you fail to resist this, you will drop to your knees and surrender!"
Qin Nan shouted as he swung the stick forward, as if he were slashing with a godly saber.
The three geniuses immediately resisted with their Monarch Arts. However, the pain caused by the hit was ten times greater than what they had suffered previously.
As the stick was swung rapidly, the place was filled with cries of agony.
The pain they suffered from was like a terrifying demon, trying to crush their will.
I can't give up!
Never give up!
There's no way we would surrender!
In the midst of it, it felt like a voice was echoing in their hearts.
It was their pride, their unwillingness to admit their defeat!
Ao Cangtian suddenly let out a furious roar as his dragon might in the form of a brilliant purple glow was unleashed. It had stepped past his limit and achieved a brand-new level.
With a flicker, his figure dodged the attack at an unimaginable speed.
Qin Nan turned the stick around and aimed at the other two geniuses. Jiu JIu and Yang Qi's eyes immediately flickered.
Two shocking auras were unleashed.
It turned out to be their own unique auras.
The two beasts completely dodged the attack too.
"HAHAHA!" Ao Cangtian was the first one to burst out laughing, "My Purple-Golden Battle Dragon Art has finally ranked up, reaching its limit! So what if you have the Beast-Hitting Stick, you still can't defeat me!"
"Phew, I finally dodged it. Otherwise, my face would be ruined."
"Mm, not bad!"
Jiu Jiu and Yang Qi wore brilliant smiles as well.
Qin Nan's lips curled upward seeing this. Somehow, he felt quite satisfied knowing that the three geniuses had improved significantly under his teaching.
Qin Nan raised his head looking into the sky. It seemed like the day was almost over.
Right on time, the lesson had come to the final phase.
Before Qin Nan could speak, Ao Cangtian reacted and said with a hint of admiration, "I have to admit that your capabilities have exceeded my imagination. You are surely a worthy rival in the future. However, even though my strength did improve, it's not enough to convince me to be your mount."
Ao Cangtian hesitated before he waved his hand and said, "If you have any other requests, like Monarch Arts, pills, herbs, etc., I'll try my best to fulfill it."
"Senior Brother Ao is right. I will remember your kindness today. You can ask us for any favor apart from being your mount."
"Mm, thanks for your help."
Jiu Jiu and Yang Qi said respectively.
They were not saying this as they had decided not to keep their promise, but with their talent, bloodline, and determination, even without Qin Nan's training, they would still rank up within half a month.
It was true that Qin Nan had saved them half a month's work, but in comparison, it was not enough to let them lower their heads and be Qin Nan's mount.
That being said, they were utterly convinced of his capabilities after going through the training.
"I'm sorry, I don't need anything else."
Qin Nan shook his head without hesitation, "There's still some time left in the day. I have one last thing to teach you. If you still think it's not enough, I have nothing to say then."
"You have something to teach us still? You…"
Ao Cangtian and the others wore slightly unpleasant looks.
They never thought that Qin Nan would be this stubborn, insisting on them being his mount. Wasn't it better for them to owe him a favor instead?
Besides, without the Beast-Hitting Stick, what else could a fourth-layer Martial Progenitor teach them?
"Ao Cangtian, didn't you say that your Purple-Golden Battle Dragon Art has reached its limit?"
Qin Nan asked.
The three geniuses were startled.
What did he mean by that?
Was he suggesting that he could help them to overcome the limits of their Monarch Arts?
No matter how outstanding Qin Nan's Martial Skill Talent was, it was impossible to further improve the Purple-Golden Battle Dragon Art, as it had reached the limit!
"I believe you're mistaken. It is indeed difficult to improve your Monarch Arts any further in a short period of time. I'm just planning to show you something." Qin Nan said in a calm tone.
He stomped the ground and unleashed his personal Martial Tree, which emitted a thick Monarch aura.
Under the astonished gazes of the three geniuses…
The second Divine Battle Tree emerged into the sky with a strong battle intent.
The three geniuses were thunderstruck.
The sight they were seeing now served as a powerful punch to their souls.
Two Martial Trees?
Qin Nan had two Martial Trees?
As the three geniuses, the Young Masters of the three beast tribes, they were relatively knowledgeable, thus they had heard that some powerful geniuses were able to break the rules of cultivation!
However, such a thing only existed in legends.
The three geniuses had also assumed that it was impossible to surpass the rules of cultivation, as they had never seen anyone doing it!
However, someone had actually done it!
"This is the last thing I can teach you." Qin Nan glanced at the three astounded geniuses and spoke in a calm tone, "There is always someone more talented than you, that's just how the world and cultivation works. Maybe the limit that you're seeing…is not exactly the limit."
The final words felt like a great thunder echoing in their minds.
Shocked, astonished, unbelievable…
It felt like a giant door had been opened.
