“The Lightning Tribulation is happening!”
The cultivators at the scene, regardless of their cultivation and their wishes for Qin Nan to ascend successfully or to eliminate Qin Nan, they subconsciously held their breaths.
Whether Qin Nan was going to ascend or not was fully dependent on these few moments!
“Qin Nan, don’t you dare!”
Zhao Lijian let out a roar on the dojo. He performed a hand seal at the cost of his lifespan in exchange for a formidable power. It strengthened the illusionary gate as it collapsed upon Qin Nan.
“Unrepentant Immortal Art!”
Sima Xunbei, Zhao Kuo, and the rest of the Peerless Geniuses roared as their auras skyrocketed while their will condensed. They unleashed all their power to execute their strongest Immortal Art.
Qin Nan gathered his will and the immortal force in his body into the Heaven-Shattering Saber, transforming it into an ancient glowing saber soaring into the sky. It shattered the giant gate and the Immortal Arts.
From afar, it looked as if he was in a swamp with an immeasurable depth. He was using all he had to break free and make it to the surface.
Envoy Rong Wang, the South World Immortal Emperor, Long Xuanling, and the Peerless Rulers and authorities of the Supreme Daoism factions were overjoyed.
They could tell that Qin Nan was at his limit. If Wu Huisheng and Yan Qingyan executed their moves too, Qin Nan would surely be injured and would struggle to break free from the surround in a short time, meaning that he would not be able to ascend as an immortal.
“Qin Nan, I’ve always wanted to be like Empress Feiyue and earn the utmost glory.”
Yan Qingyan suddenly transmitted her voice to Qin Nan, “You are from the same place as Empress Feiyue, so I won’t stop you. I hope you will tell me everything you know about Empress Feiyue in the Secondary Lower Realm.”
She wore a calm expression. It was the reason why she was not hostile toward Qin Nan. She was actually amiable.
She was willing to compete with Qin Nan, but she had no intention to inflict serious damage on him or kill him, nor would she try to stop Qin Nan from ascending as an immortal.
Even if it meant she would be severely punished once she returned to her faction…
However, the eyes of Wu Huisheng who was only a few steps away from her flickered.
If he was to attack with his strongest move, he would surely inflict serious damage on Qin Nan.
“Dao Execution Sword!”
Wu Huisheng unleashed the Dao Execution Will and wisps of Dao Glow, which combined into an ancient sword with a murderous intent that was around five zhang long.
“Do I really have to expose myself?”
Qin Nan’s eyes glittered.
He had indeed used all his strength, thus he had no chance of resisting Wu Huisheng’s attack. However, he had activated several Arts of Dao Seeking in his body just in case.
He did not want to use them initially, since once he revealed his secrets under the circumstances, he would find himself in deep trouble since the Supreme Daoism factions were clearly not going to forgive him.
However, it was his only chance to ascend as an immortal. He would not allow anyone to stop him!
Wu Huisheng’s robe drifted in the air. He rose in the air and grabbed the Dao Execution Sword. He set his eyes on Qin Nan and was about to slash forward.
However, his body suddenly shuddered in the nick of time. For some reason, a strong feeling was advising against it in his heart.
He was pursuing the Path of Dao Execution that emphasized on killing strong opponents and foes with everything possible in order to achieve their own Dao.
It was obvious that Qin Nan was the strongest opponent of his level that he had ever encountered. He had never felt as excited as he was now. He had no regret even if he ended up dying in Qin Nan’s hands.
However, he was slightly hesitant now.
Qin Nan could defeat a first-layer Earth Immortal with his remarkable strength. The man was clearly stronger than him, but despite that, he was just a half-Human Immortal still since he had yet to ascend as an immortal.
If he was to attack and defeat Qin Nan now, wouldn’t it feel like he had an advantage because he had ascended as an immortal but Qin Nan hadn’t?
The Path of Dao Execution involved defeating the opponents at all costs, but if he did not win a stronger opponent with a weaker cultivation, how could it be considered executing the Dao?
He was lost for a moment. Wu Huisheng suddenly recalled the first battle between him and Qin Nan in the Earth Immortal Dragon Corpse.
The two were on equal footing in terms of cultivation, but Qin Nan had achieved the Dao Realm.
Before the outcome was decided, Qin Nan had to leave just so he could ascend as an immortal. Even though he was extremely unwilling, he still allowed Qin Nan to leave.
“Perhaps this is what my Dao should be!”
The hesitation in Wu Huisheng’s eyes vanished within an instant. He lifted the sword and burst out laughing, “I, Wu Huisheng will never take advantage of the others. Qin Nan, go ahead and ascend!”
“Once you ascended as an immortal, we shall fight again!”
Qin Nan was stunned. He did not think both Yan Qingyan and Wu Huisheng would decide not to attack him despite having such a perfect opportunity.
He quickly collected his thoughts and gave them a thoughtful look. He acknowledged their requests and broke free from the surround of the Peerless Geniuses, soaring into the sky.
“Wu Huisheng, Yan Qingyan, you two…”
Envoy Rong Wang, the South World Immortal Emperor, Long Xuanling, and the others were astounded. The Peerless Rulers of the Dao Execution Gate and the Reincarnation Sect were infuriated too.
“Qin Nan is going to overcome the Tribulation!”
The Bliss Immortal Emperor and his crew, and the crowd, including Envoy Feng Hua held their breaths.
Following a loud roar, thunderous explosions echoed above the mountain.
An unstoppable figure sprang toward the ancient pattern and unleashed a shocking saber glow, shattering the ancient pattern into pieces.
The presence of the Tribulation vanished.
The god force inside Qin Nan’s body completely evolved into the immortal force, allowing his cultivation to break free from the chains binding it.
Tenth-layer Human Immortal Realm!
First-layer Earth Immortal Realm!
Second-layer Earth Immortal Realm!
It stopped after reaching the third-layer Earth Immortal Realm, he did not even need to trigger the Tribulation of the Earth Immortal Realm.
The reason was that Qin Nan been accumulating a lot of energy prior to ascending as an immortal. He had also practiced the Battle Dao Immortal Manuscript and the general outlines of five other Arts of Dao Seeking.
Meanwhile, Qin Nan felt like some obscure changes were taking place, allowing him to comprehend every art he had practiced even further.
The Heaven-Shattering Saber, the Crimson-Golden Battle Armor, and the Immortal Eyes of the Divine God of Battle were evolving too.
“So…this is how it feels like to be an immortal?”
Qin Nan sensed the changes in his body and how the world felt different to him. He soon realized the differences after he had ascended as an immortal.
“But didn’t the Beast Hide Drawing mention that I will learn the way to resurrect Princess Miao Miao and Jiang Bilan after I ascend as an immortal? Why didn’t I see any difference inside my body…”
Qin Nan frowned. He was relieved that he had ascended successfully, but he was more eager to bring the two gorgeous women back to life.
As he was confused, his flesh suddenly underwent tremendous changes.
It was as if a bolt of ancient lightning had descended upon him deep inside his mind. Both his soul and the Divine Battle Spirit were shaking vigorously.
