Chapter 372 - Demonic-Cored Highness’ Evil Intention
The crowd was left in awe due to the suppression of the imperious old man, placing them on the verge of crumbling. However, they had never expected a man to stand firmly facing such a powerful presence and fight back!
How courageous was he?
How crazy was he?
The imperious old man became enraged.
A mere ant dared to fight back, utterly reckless!
He instantly executed his move, forming a giant hand that crushed downward from above.
Despite the incredible power of the Heavenly Accumulating Strike, the difference displayed between the two attacks was like the difference between a firefly and a star. The difference was far too great to be measured.
“How bold, you dare to harm my successor!”
A raging cry could be heard all of a sudden, together with the aura of a Martial Highness.
At that instant, the imperious old man was startled. Even Qin Nan was stunned.
The imperious old man did not expect a Martial Highness to appear with this timing, while Qin Nan wore a confused look on his face. That’s not the voice of the Imperial Exterminator Tang Qingshan. If that was the case, who was this Martial Highness?
The entire island began to shake vigorously as countless runes covered in the color of blood emerged from the ground and blended with the three stone statues.
Following this, the three stone statues emitted a brilliant glow and merged into a giant stone statue.
The statue was nine-zhang tall, with a pair of fiery eyes as if its vitality was recovering. The stone statue then raised its hand before flinging it aside, resulting in a crack being formed in mid-air that devoured the imperious old man’s attack.
The imperious old man was astonished.
Qin Nan’s heart skipped a beat also.
Who could have expected the Demonic-Cored Highness, who had been trying to escape from the two Sacred Areas hundreds of years ago, to awaken at this moment?
However, as a result, Qin Nan’s Heavenly Accumulating Strike was able to break free from the resistance and sprang forward in Jiang Bilan’s direction.
Jiang Bilan uttered a scream in fear.
Why was this happening!
Why did the Demonic-Cored Highness suddenly appear!
Why am I still being attacked even though my master is here?
“Humph! Demonic-Cored Highness, how bold of you to be so disrespectful although you are yet to fully recover!” The imperious old man let out a harrumph as he reached out his hand to grab the Heavenly Accumulating Strike.
The light dot exploded, resulting in a terrifying blow that caused the imperious old man’s palm to shudder slightly.
Although it was only a slight shudder, the imperious old man’s face was filled with utter astonishment.
How could a peak Martial Emperor Realm exhort such a powerful attack?
He shall not remain alive today!
The imperious old man swiftly made up his mind and uttered a roar. An explosion took place in mid-air, as countless pieces of the void merged together, forming a black hole that crushed downward at Qin Nan.
This young man shall not leave here alive!
“So what if I’ve yet to recover? A mere clone like you trying to act imperiously here—in your dreams!”
The Demonic-Cored Highness let out a roar as a blinding beam of demonic light was fired from his throat at the black hole, causing it to dissipate instantly. The remaining power of the demonic light landed on the figure of the imperious old man without mercy.
The imperious old man’s figure shuddered violently, as the aura emitted from his body was weakened tremendously.
On the other hand, although Jiang Bilan was under his protection, which was able to nullify most of the impact, the remaining force almost shattered her flesh into pieces, causing her to scream in pain.
Although both of them only possessed a hundredth of their full power, the impact from the battle between two Martial Highnesses was utterly terrifying. Even Jiang Bilan had almost died from the impact!
The imperious old man could not help but burst out cursing.
With this Jiang Bilan in the way, she served as a hindrance to the battle.
“Demonic-Cored Highness, stop being full of yourself. It’s only a clone formed with my Divine Sense. Since my true being is currently on the way here, I’ll hunt you down even if you try to escape to the ends of the world!”
The imperious old man yelled before he tore the space apart and stepped inside as he was trying to flee from the scene.
“You were just a piece of trash when I roamed freely within the lower district back then, and you dare threaten me when you’re the one trying to flee for your life? I’d say you are seeking death!”
The Demonic-Cored Highness became furious as he opened his mouth wide and fired a beam of demonic light at the space.
BANG! BANG! BANG!
The space within thirty li of the area was immersed in a series of shocking explosions.
The imperious old man was severely injured, as the clone was on the verge of being destroyed. Despite his fury, he no longer dared to challenge his foe and immediately left the scene.
Qin Nan’s eyes were engulfed in flames of fury.
She should consider herself lucky, if Tang Qingshan had arrived in time, there was no way he would let her go!
However, since Qin Nan had already transmitted his message, even if Jiang Bilan were to escape now, Tang Qingshan could still hunt her down by crushing the headquarters of the Trading Alliance!
Either way, he would never forgive Jiang Bilan!
Qin Nan took a deep breath to withhold his anger, before he brought his fists together and said, “Thank you senior for saving my life!”
The situation was incredibly dangerous; if the Demonic-Cored Highness had not interfered, he would not have stood a chance against the imperious old man.
Meanwhile, the crowd gradually collected their thoughts after witnessing the epic battle between the two Martial Highnesses. They glanced at the terrifying stone statue with a hint of fear.
So this was the Demonic-Cored Highness!
The infamous presence who survived despite being hunted by the two Sacred Areas a few hundred years ago!
“Thank me? Young man, if that’s what you wish to do, hand over your body right now!”
The Demonic-Cored Highness let out a hollow laugh all of a sudden.
Following this, an endless black smoke was emitted from his body toward the surroundings and encapsulated the entire island. In the blink of an eye, the entire place turned incredibly dark and was surrounded by a demonic aura, as vague cries of demons could be heard.
The demonic Qi that Jiang Bilan had triggered previously was nowhere close to the demonic Qi surrounding the place!
“This is bad!”
Qin Nan’s face instantly turned pale.
It appeared that the Demonic-Cored Highness was willing to save him from the imperious old man although he had yet to recover his full strength, merely because he was interested in stealing his body.
“Qin Nan, run!”
Princess Miao Miao uttered a roar as the half-Martial Dominator Realm cultivation burst out from her body while she grabbed Qin Nan’s shoulder and dragged him away from the place.
“Trying to escape?”
The hollow laugh on the face of the Demonic-Cored Highness grew thicker. He then stomped his right foot in mid-air, forming waves of force to collide with Princess Miao Miao’s figure.
Princess Miao Miao’s face turned exceedingly pale as her figure was sent flying, causing her aura to turn extremely weak.
After all, her cultivation right now was only at the half-Martial Dominator Realm, which served as a great difference compared to the cultivation of the Demonic-Cored Highness.
The Demonic-Cored Highness burst out laughing after seeing this, his eyes filled with excitement.
This was great!
God was treating me well!
A tenth-grade Xuan ranked Martial Spirit!
And a law-defying Dragon-Lined Golden Core!
If he were to devour this genius, not only could he retain his previous glory, he could even have a chance to rank up to the Martial Sacred Realm in the near future, and emerge as the divine being of the lower district!
