Chapter 951 - Ji Ye
Qin Nan was surprised. He did not expect to stumble into Jiang Bilan here. Was this some kind of fateful encounter? The thought crossed his mind, but he soon collected his thoughts and inspected her.
Since their last meeting at the Monarch Ranking trial, Jiang Bilan's cultivation had now reached the fifth-layer Martial Progenitor Realm. The force of death in her body had grown stronger, making it difficult to estimate her strength.
Qin Nan had an uneasy feeling for some reason, but he could not really explain why.
"There are too many people here, let's head there." Jiang Bilan transmitted her voice before turning around.
Qin Nan brought his crew and followed behind.
After coming to a relatively quiet place, Jiang Bilan's eyes glistened as she smilingly said, "Qin Nan, are these all your people? I'm Jiang Bilan!"
The two hounds and one mouse took turns to introduce themselves. Within just a short period of time, the intelligent Jiang Bilan soon made herself welcomed among the crew, even Xuan Yue's gaze toward her was filled with a hint of admiration.
"Are you here for the succession of the Destruction Martial Monarch?" Qin Nan asked.
"Yes." Jiang Bilan said with a solemn expression, "Since I bumped into you, I would like to cooperate with you. You have quite a crew here, so we'll split it three to seven. How's that?"
Qin Nan nodded without hesitation.
His feelings toward Jiang Bilan were quite strange, almost unexplainable, but after the series of events in the Middle Continent, he was more willing to trust her.
"Mm, let's get straight to business. Use your eye-technique to observe the cultivators in the Unjaded Town, and tell me their characteristics." Jiang Bilan said.
Qin Nan was astounded, but did not ask any questions. He immediately executed the first form of the Divine God of Battle to increase his battle intent and activated his left eye.
There were a total of five hundred and seventy-three cultivators in the town.
"A disciple of the Bodhi Temple, third-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit and a sixth-layer Martial Progenitor Realm. There's a bump on his forehead, and he's a little short. A disciple of the Green Jade Sect, second-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit, eighth-layer Martial Progenitor Realm. Two scars on his face and some kind of seal on his forehead…"
Qin Nan inspected the cultivators, causing him to wear a solemn expression.
There were around one hundred and twenty-three cultivators that would pose a threat to them, who were all seventh-layer Martial Progenitor Realm and above. Fifteen of them would pose a great threat, as they all possessed a fourth-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit apart from their outstanding cultivations!
"The fifteen people are the eight hundred and twenty-third ranked Li Guan, nine hundred and twenty-first ranked Ouyang Xiaoxiao, nine hundred and-fifty-fifth ranked Zhang Ruofei…" Jiang Bilan calmly uttered the names of the cultivators under the astonished gazes of the others. "According to my intel, Li Guan and Ouyang Xiaoxiao would surely compete for the succession of the Destruction Martial Monarch."
The Land of Dharma had lots of successions, which the cultivators in the Unjaded Town were waiting for, thus they were not necessarily here for the succession of the Destruction Martial Monarch.
After all, the succession of the Destruction Martial Monarch had appeared more than ten times over the past two thousand years, but no one had managed to acquire it.
"Impressive! We do feel that they would pose a great threat to us!"
The two hounds and one mouse were astounded.
The Heavenly Fortune tribe were able to predict fortune and danger with their talent, but Jiang BIlan was not one of them. How did she know that those two experts were aiming for the succession of the Destruction Martial Monarch?
Xuan Yue and the eight skeletons were shocked too.
Only Qin Nan was used to it. Jiang Bilan's wisdom had always impressed him.
"Two of them, huh? But…" Qin Nan was about to say something when his expression changed as he whispered, "Withdraw your auras, someone is coming!"
Jiang Bilan immediately waved her hand, spreading strange talismans around the place to conceal it.
Qin Nan raised his head.
Above the Unjaded Town, a young man wearing a purple hairpin was soaring in the sky. He had a cold expression, and petals the color of blood could be seen surging in his eyes as if he were a god gazing down upon the world.
He was observing the town with his eye-technique!
"That guy is strong, eighth-layer Martial Progenitor and a fourth-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit, who possesses the Blood Flower Eyes!" Qin Nan said.
"The Blood Flower Eyes? He must be from the Two-Starred Faction Righteous Sect, their top inner disciple Ji Ye, who is ranked six hundred and third on the Monarch Ranking, known for his cold-heartedness, never sparing anyone's life." Jiang Bilan said with a stern expression.
At that instant, Ji Ye withdrew his gaze and swiftly disappeared into the Land of Dharma.
Qin Nan frowned.
Was this Ji Ye not interested in the succession of the Destruction Martial Monarch?
"Young Master Qin Nan, our instincts are telling us that this Ji Ye is not friendly, he would most likely trouble us!" Yellow and Blacky snapped furiously out of nowhere.
Qin Nan and Jiang Bilan quickly exchanged glances with one another.
Although the Heavenly Fortune Hounds' instincts were not perfectly accurate, there must be a reason they would say so.
The succession of the Destruction Martial Monarch was still not accessible yet, but Ji Ye had already left, did that mean…
"The mantis stalks the cicada without being aware of the oriole behind!"
Qin Nan and Jiang Bilan blurted out at the same time.
The Land of Dharma was free to enter at any time. Currently, many rogue cultivators were training themselves there. As such, Ji Ye could head inside to plant his traps, and strike when someone found the succession.
It was difficult to find the treasure, but it was even harder to protect it.
"Many people will be planning the same thing as Ji Ye, waiting at the Land of Dharma, this is getting interesting." Qin Nan wore a grin.
This was a real battle.
No rules, no reasoning, just battle and conspiracy!
Qin Nan could not help but admit that this was more interesting than the competition in the Dragon Emperor Clan. He could feel his blood boiling now.
At that instant…
A piercing sound could be heard coming from a corner of the Land of Dharma, as a brilliant light penetrated the sky.
Following an explosion, the light shattered, causing a formidable monarch aura to sweep the surroundings like a surging tide.
The rare phenomenon was a sign that the succession had been activated!
The Unjaded Town became restless after a brief silence, as many cultivators were startled.
"Come, let's made our way there!"
An uproar took place in the town.
"Let's go!" Qin Nan said as he flew into the distance.
