“I will surely keep my promise.”
Qin Nan took a deep breath and used all his might just to rise to his feet. He flickered his finger and released Xiu Shenliang, Lin Qingpo, and the others out.
Xiu Shenliang, Lin Qingpo, and the rest of the Peerless Geniuses were confused upon seeing what was before them. They had no clue what had happened.
“Qin Nan, letting them go isn’t enough today. You will have to pay for abducting our core disciples!”
The Peerless Rulers of the Supreme Daoism factions came with unfriendly looks.
The Bliss Immortal Emperor’s trio was startled.
The South World Immortal Emperor and Long Xuanling let out a hollow laugh in their hearts.
Many cultivators shook their heads and let out a sigh in their hearts.
If Qin Nan’s Dao Foundation was not destroyed, even if he had abducted the core disciples of the Supreme Daoism factions, these Peerless Rulers would not mention a single word about it. They would even try to recruit Qin Nan.
However, everything had changed now.
Even though Qin Nan had just become a core disciple of the Sky Taihuang Sect and an honorable disciple of Supreme Daoism, would the Sky Taihuang Sect seriously offend so many Supreme Daoism factions just for a Peerless Genius?
The answer was fairly simple.
“If you are asking Qin Nan to pay, I will be more than willing to do so on his behalf,” Envoy Feng Hua said coldly.
The Peerless Rulers exchanged glances with one another and frowned. They did not expect Envoy Feng Hua would step forward to protect Qin Nan still under the circumstances.
“Forget it, it’s all in the past now.”
The Peerless Rulers waved their hands and shifted their attention to Lin Qingpo and the others.
Qin Nan just had his Dao Foundation destroyed at the Sky Taihuang Sect. It was indeed unwise for them to pick on Qin Nan again while they were still at the Sky Taihuang Sect.
They had lots of opportunities to take Qin Nan out in the future.
“Senior Uncle! Qin Nan has learned the Art of Dao Seeking of the Extreme Living Gate without permission!”
“HE’s right, he also learned the True Scripture of Sky Taihuang of the Sky Taihuang Sect!”
Lin Qingpo, Luo Yan, and the other Peerless Geniuses said upon collecting their thoughts.
The eyes of the Peerless Rulers widened.
In addition to them, the hearts of the crowd skipped a beat too.
It would be shocking if Qin Nan actually managed to learn their Arts of Dao Seeking.
“Fellow cultivators, it was just a mere illusion I cast on them. Do you seriously believe I can learn your Arts of Dao Seeking? I’ve never been to the Extreme Living Gate and the Sky Taihuang Sect since I came to the Nine Heavens Immortal Realm.”
“You can easily check where I’ve been to.”
Qin Nan calmly said, “Besides, I’ve only encountered the disciples of the Supreme Daoism factions when the Tide of Ascension took place.”
Lin Qingpo, Luo Yan, and the Peerless Geniuses were stunned. However, they did agree with Qin Nan after a second thought. Did he really cast an illusion on them just to mess with their minds?
“Humph Qin Nan, I already knew it was just an illusion! Do you dare to fight me again now? I was only being careless last time. I’m going to beat the crap out of you this time!”
An arrogant voice said. It was Xiu Shenliang.
None of the words he spoke was true. However, when facing the man whom had greatly humiliated him and taken away his chance to ascend as an immortal, his nature was causing trouble again. He just had to feel superior with his words.
“So it was an illusion.”
The first core disciple of the Illusionary Immortal Dao Gate said. It immediately cleared the doubts of the others.
“Qin Nan, why aren’t you talking? Are you scared? I’m telling you, I only need a single hand…”
Xiu Shenliang said arrogantly. However, the Peerless Ruler of the Illusionary Immortal Dao Gate quickly dragged him away with a dark face before he could finish. It would be embarrassing if he kept allowing the idiot to provoke Qin Nan.
Even though Qin Nan’s Dao Foundation had been destroyed, he still had the mastery of the Four Extremities. Together with his cultivation and his capabilities, none of the Peerless Geniuses at the scene would stand a chance against him.
“Cultivators, I apologize that someone like that had intervened with the Battle of the Strongest Immortal.”
Envoy Feng Hua faced the crowd and said calmly, “I now declare that the Battle of the Strongest Immortal had come to an end. The winner of the battle is Qin Nan. Any objections?”
The Strongest Immortal was just a title, thus the crowd did not have any dissent.
Besides, apart from Qin Nan, no one was qualified to become the Strongest Immortal. Otherwise, the title would become a disgrace rather than an honor.
The cultivators began to leave as the battle came to an end.
“Cultivator Qin Nan, I believe we’ll soon meet again.”
Long Xuanling said with a deep smile and left.
The South World Immortal Emperor gave Qin Nan a thoughtful look in silence.
“Qin Nan, you should stay at the Sky Taihuang Sect. You can recover from your injuries while lying low for now.”
Envoy Feng Hua glanced at the two men that left and frowned.
“Senior, that won’t be necessary. I’ve promised the three Immortal Emperors to lend them a hand.”
Qin Nan shook his head. He coughed and spat out a few drops of blood.
Supreme Chang Xiao had treated his physical injuries, but the injuries inflicted on his Immortal Soul were still around.
Envoy Feng Hua frowned further but he soon let out a sigh. He patted Qin Nan on the shoulder and said, “Then I guess there’s no use trying to convince you. You can contact me through the badge if anything happens.”
The man then left to handle other matters.
Qin Nan under the protection of the three Immortal Emperors. That woman was also looking after him. He should be safe for now.
“Brother Nan, I’m coming with you!”
Qiu Hong said firmly. He had to stick with Qin Nan in a time like this.
Qin Nan was slightly startled. He glanced at the three Immortal Emperors who nodded to give their consent.
“Err, Qin Nan…”
Wan Xiao came over with an awkward look. He seemed a little hesitant too.
“You’re trying to ask me to forget about our bet, right?”
Qin Nan asked as if he could read Wan Xiao’s mind.
“Yeah…well…my father has asked me to go back. If I end up as your mount, he’s going to…”
Wan Xiao was embarrassed. It was humiliating to go against his words as a Peerless Genius.
However, he had always been reluctant to be Qin Nan’s mount.
Besides, Qin Nan’s Dao Foundation had been destroyed. He was just a Peerless Genius that had mastered the Four Extremities.
“Forget it, go now, our bet doesn’t count.”
Qin Nan waved his hand.
“Are you serious?”
Wan Xiao was overjoyed. He quickly said, “Don’t worry, I’ll compensate for your loss, since you did help me in the Immortal Ancient places…”
Qin Nan interrupted before he could finish, “That’s enough, seniors, let’s go.”
The Bliss Immortal Emperor’s trio nodded. The Bliss Immortal Emperor flicked his finger to summon an immortal glow encapsulating Qin Nan, Qiu Hong, and the Blood-Eye Human Immortal.
“Cultivator Qin Nan.”
A pleasant voice came from the distance.
Xu Xianzhi who was wearing a long dress stood beside the Peerless Ruler of the Sanqing Ancient Sect. She blinked and said softly, “I believe in you, you will surely reclaim the peak.”
A burst of pleasant laughter was heard too, “She’s right! Qin Nan, we aren’t done with the battle yet. Don’t you forget!”
It was from Wu Huisheng.
“Qin Nan, farewell!”
Yan Qingyan, Zhao Kuo, Huangfu Hou, Sima Xunbei, and the rest of the Peerless Geniuses brought their fists together at Qin Nan.
They were utterly impressed by Qin Nan in the battle. They were sincerely hoping that Qin Nan would reclaim his glory.
“Humph, Qin Nan, you have lied to me. Take this badge, we’ll bet again when we meet next time.”
Meng Jiugong tossed a badge at Qin Nan with a displeased look.
Qin Nan was stunned for a moment. A while later, he burst out laughing.
“Everyone, we shall meet again!”
Under Wan Xiao’s blank expression and the crowd’s gaze, Qin Nan and his crew disappeared into the distance.
