Chapter 373 - Threatening a Martial Highness
The rogue cultivators could feel their hearts turning cold.
They did not expect that the Demonic-Cored Highness was only here to devour Qin Nan. That being said, it allowed them to feel relieved at the same time, as they would not be involved since Qin Nan was his target.
The rogue cultivators exchanged glances with one another while they prepared to leave immediately.
“Trying to leave?”
To everyone’s surprise, the Demonic-Cored Highness suddenly stared at them with a pair of icy eyes, “You ants should stay where you are and let me devour you all. Otherwise, I’ll make sure you suffer!”
The crowd’s faces instantly turned pale.
The Demonic-Cored Highness was planning to devour all of them?
“Senior Brother Qin Nan, run!”
At that instant, Liang Kai and the others uttered a roar while blocking in front of Qin Nan’s figure with determined looks on their face.
Qin Nan never blamed them despite the fact that they had stabbed him and became his burden. Therefore, they were willing to sacrifice their lives just so Qin Nan could survive.
Senior Brother Qin Nan was a true genius, and if he were to survive today, his talents would shine brightly within the lower district.
“You pieces of trash!”
The Demonic-Cored Highness became enraged.
As a Martial Highness who had roamed across the lower district for many years, since when had a mere group of peak Martial Emperor Realm cultivators dared to oppose him?
He then reached out his finger to murder the entire crowd.
Qin Nan uttered a roar, causing the Demonic-Cored Highness’ action to come to a halt before he glanced at him.
“Demonic-Cored Highness, I’m the one you are planning to devour. It’s none of their business, leave them alone.” Qin Nan said with a cold expression, “I know you want to take control of my body, so if you are not willing to do what I say, then I’m sorry—I guess I will detonate myself!”
While saying this, Qin Nan’s expression turned ferocious as if he had gone crazy.
“Senior Brother Qin Nan!”
Princess Miao Miao, Liang Kai, and the rest were shocked.
On the other hand, the crowd of rogue cultivators was filled with a hint of joy. This Qin Nan was so kind to let them go by sacrificing his life.
The Demonic-Cored Highness let out a mocking laugh.
One would need tremendous courage to detonate himself.
This was because everyone’s cultivation was a result of their hard work. Nobody would be willing to sacrifice their cultivation easily, especially a genius like Qin Nan.
Without any hesitation, a terrifying force was gathered on the Demonic-Cored Highness’ palm and was about to burst out from it.
Qin Nan’s Dragon-Lined Golden Core began to vibrate vigorously as the different auras within it turned unstable—He was actually going to blow himself up!
“You…” The Demonic-Cored Highness was startled as he immediately withdrew the attack and clenched his teeth, “Consider yourselves lucky, get your asses away from here at once!”
Princess Miao Miao, Liang Kai, and the others wore unpleasant looks.
Urging them to leave?
Leave Qin Nan behind?
How could they commit such a shameless and ungrateful act!
The rogue cultivators immediately fled from the scene as if their sins had just been forgiven without glancing back at Qin Nan.
Qin Nan glanced at Princess Miao Miao and the rest and moved his lips as he transmitted his voice to Princess Miao Miao through his Divine Sense.
Princess Miao Miao’s eyes flickered as she blurted out, “Liang Kai and the rest, follow me to leave the place. This Demonic-Cored Highness won’t be able to harm Qin Nan!”
Liang Kai and his crew were stunned.
Unable to hurt Qin Nan?
Were you being serious right now?
That’s the Demonic-Cored Highness who he’s facing. Although he does not have his full strength at the moment, even a peak Martial Dominator Realm expert would not stand a chance against him!
Princess Miao Miao showed no sign of explaining the situation to them, as she reached out her hand and dragged them away with brute force, without leaving them any time to react.
Before Princess Miao Miao left, she even glanced at the Demonic-Cored Highness with a pitiful look.
This guy was left with no choice but to seal his cultivation and had transformed into the Martial Ancestor Mystical Ground in order to escape from being hunted by the two Sacred Areas. After waiting a few hundred years, he now finally had the chance to regain his strength, but had ended up stumbling into Qin Nan.
“What was that look?”
The Demonic-Cored Highness was left in awe.
Why was that little girl looking at him with a pitiful look?
Did she really think he could not handle a mere peak Martial Emperor Realm Qin Nan who had already lost all of his energy?
What a f**king joke!
“I remember those idiots were trying to harm you just then. I guess you wouldn’t mind if they were to be killed!”
The Demonic-Cored Highness felt unpleasant. Before Qin Nan could answer him, he reached out his hand that emitted a glow penetrating the figures of the escaping rogue cultivators.
The joy on the faces of the cultivators stiffened.
Didn’t he promise to let them go?
Nonetheless, before they could come up with an explanation, their bodies exploded into mists of blood and were absorbed into the Demonic-Cored Highness’ body.
The Demonic-Cored Highness uttered a satisfied voice as his eyes turned slightly red while staring at Qin Nan, before he burst out laughing, “HAHA, kid, it’s your honor to become my flesh after my reborn! I shall now let you…”
Before he could finish, Qin Nan said in a cold tone.
“Demonic-Cored Highness, since you lent me a hand previously, I’ll advise you to stop planning to steal my body. Otherwise, the effort you put in for the past hundred years—the suffering you endured—will be in vain. You’d better think twice!”
The Demonic-Cored Highness was stunned in place.
What was going on right now?
Shouldn’t this lad be terrified facing him and start begging for his life?
Why was this lad threatening him instead, as if it was meant to be that way?
Could it be...
The Demonic-Cored Highness pondered upon the possibilities.
An outstanding genius like Qin Nan would surely be the focus of the two Sacred Areas, with countless experts concerned with his safety. Therefore, it was most likely that Qin Nan had notified his Sacred Area using some unknown method.
“Hehe!” The Demonic-Cored Highness let out a disdainful laugh, “Do you think that I’m not aware of your little tricks? The transformation of the Heavens into demons beyond the boundaries, silent and undetected; let the secrets of the surroundings be concealed!”
With a flick, an arcane light was fired into the sky and encapsulated the entire island.
From the outside, it appeared as if the island had vanished into thin air, like it had never existed before. Not a single trace of its previous aura could be detected.
“Now, even the Peak Leaders of the two Sacred Areas would not be able to find you!”
The Demonic-Cored Highness uttered a scornful laugh.
Trying to be rescued by the experts of the Sacred Areas?
Such naive thoughts!
“Demonic-Cored Highness…” Qin Nan let out a sigh. He was aware of the Demonic-Cored Highness’ interpretation of the situation, but since he had already transmitted a message to Tang Qingshan, he would most likely arrive soon. Although the aura of the area was concealed, it would not be a problem for Tang Qingshan with his outstanding cultivation.
Hence the reason why he had said the words to the Demonic-Cored Highness.
Currently, Qin Nan’s first priority was to deal with Jiang Bilan. He had no conflict with the Demonic-Cored Highness whatsoever. In fact, he had done him a favor, thus Qin Nan hoped that the Demonic-Cored Highness would not do anything stupid.
“I will say it one more time—you better not harm me as the person about to arrive is more terrifying than what you expect. There is no way you can suffer the consequences.” Qin Nan took a deep breath and spoke to the Demonic-Cored Highness in a serious tone, “You should release me now, so I can hunt down the Trading Alliance. I promise I will not tell anyone about you!”
The Demonic-Cored Highness was dumbfounded hearing the words.
Was this lad out of his mind?
Was he actually threatening him to let him go?
How did a mere Martial Emperor Realm presence obtain such confidence?
It was as if a little ant was holding his hands akimbo while telling a giant, ‘Be careful of your actions, as I’m not one to be bullied easily!’
“Humph, I would like to see how terrifying the person could be, apart from the two Sacred Areas in the lower district!” The Demonic-Cored Highness harrumphed, “Stop with your nonsense, I shall devour your flesh at once!”
Following this, he reached out his hand, which was engulfed in black flames. These black flames were not the same as the fire ignited by the Four Demons Destructive Formation. It was a Demonic Spiritual Fire, specifically used to burn one’s soul.
The reason why the Demonic-Cored Highness was being hunted by the two Sacred Areas was because he always burned his targets’ souls in a cruel manner every time he executed his attacks!
With a flick of his hand, two clouds of Demonic Spiritual Fire landed onto Qin Nan’s figure, and burned ferociously.
