Peerless Battle Spirit

Chapter 63 - The Growing Crowd


Among the new disciples, Qin Nan’s reputation was comparable to the two super geniuses, Huang Long and Ling Zixiao; no one would not know who he was.

After Qin Nan showed himself, the whole place fell silent for ten breaths’ time, before a loud chatter exploded.

“It’s Qin Nan. He’s here too.”

“Tsk tsk, I would receive great benefits and make Senior Brother Ling Zixiao pleased if I’m able to kill him.”

“Hmph, this Qin Nan is way too cocky. I planned to kill him since ages ago; is anyone interested in teaming up with me? We can split the benefits once he’s killed.”

“I’ll do it, I want to kill him too.”

“……”

In just a brief moment, several among the new disciples had emitted murderous intent; some even teamed up, emitting murderous auras, prepared to lash out with attacks at Qin Nan.

No one was surprised by the scene taking place.

Previously at the White Jade Dojo, two hundred and twenty disciples had promised Ling Zixiao to hunt Qin Nan down. Not to mention the fact that Qin Nan had unleashed his rage in front of the whole crowd, offending everyone present at the dojo.

“Hehe, do you guys really think you are matched against Senior Brother Qin Nan?” At that moment, an icy voice was heard as Xiao Leng walked out from the woods at a slow pace and stared coldly at the ferocious looking disciples, “If anyone dares to attack him, I’ll show no mercy.”

As soon as Xiao Leng appeared, one of the disciples blurted out, “Xiao Leng? Isn’t he the tenth ranked among the top ten geniuses?”

After hearing this, those who were previously directing their murderous intents at Qin Nan were shocked.

“What? Xiao Leng has teamed up with Qin Nan?”

“F**k. Now that Qin Nan is being protected by Xiao Leng, things are getting complicated.”

“Don’t you guys know? Xiao Leng is Xiao Qingxue’s brother—of course he would be helping Qin Nan.”

“……”

The initially ferocious looking disciples withdrew their murderous intent as soon as Xiao Leng arrived, not daring to offend him.

Even though Qin Nan was nothing in their eyes, Xiao Leng who was ranked tenth among the top ten geniuses was not someone they dared to offend.

Chu Yun, who was standing to the side, glanced at Qin Nan with a pair of flickering eyes and said with a soft tone, “I did not expect Junior Brother Qin Nan to improve from the fifth-layer to seventh-layer Body Tempering Realm in just a few days’ time—I’m quite impressed.”

Chu Yun words instantly scared the disciples to death.

Qin Nan’s cultivation has reached the seventh-layer Body Tempering Realm?

Even those with a ninth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirits would not be able to level up twice in just a few days’ time, right?

Has Qin Nan really done something that even the ninth-grade Huang ranked super geniuses can’t do?

While the disciples were immersed in extreme shock, they were totally bewildered too.

Despite being confused, they immediately felt lucky and glanced at Xiao Leng with a hint of gratitude.

Everyone knew Qin Nan’s Martial Spirit was eighth-grade Huang ranked; now that his cultivation had reached the seventh-layer Body Tempering Realm, who among them would be able to face him?

If Xiao Leng did not appear and stop them from attacking Qin Nan, they would be dead by now.

Qin Nan smiled calmly after hearing her words and said, “In terms of cultivating speed, mine is unmatched against Senior Sister Chu Yun’s; the reason I leveled up twice in such a short time was because of some fortunate encounters on this Island of Versatility.”

“Junior Brother Qin Nan, not everyone could even have fortunate encounters and level up twice.” Chu Yun let out an attractive smile and said, “In my opinion, being lucky is also considered a strength.”

Qin Nan glimpsed at her; this Chu Yun is really smart with her words.

This caused Qin Nan to be doubtful; now that I’ve offended almost all of the new disciples, is this Chu Yun a friend, or an enemy?

Chu Yun seemed to know what Qin Nan thoughts were; she smilingly said, “Junior Brother Qin Nan, don’t you worry. I won’t attack you even if everyone here wants to kill you. Prior to the start of the Trials of Versatility, Senior Brother Gong Yang had already mentioned you to me, and asked me to befriend you.”

These words caused the disciples to be stunned once again.

Although they had no idea who Gong Yang was, judging from her words, it seemed like Chu Yun would be siding with Qin Nan too.

Qin Nan was a little surprised; he did not expect Chu Yun to have contact with Gong Yang.

“Please let Senior Brother Gong Yang know my appreciation if you’ve got the chance.” Qin Nan brought his fists together and said honestly.

Even though he had only met Gong Yang recently, he was quite moved that Gong Yang was willing to assist him secretly.

As for Xiao Leng, who was standing behind Qin Nan—he had no idea what was going on.

Meanwhile, Chu Yun stared at Qin Nan, a hint of curiosity could be seen deep in her eyes.

Unlike these new disciples, she clearly knew that Senior Brother Gong Yang was in the top ten among the inner disciples of the sect; even Ling Zixiao and Huang Long were incomparable to him.

Qin Nan only has an eighth-grade Huang ranked Martial Spirit and a cultivation base of the seventh-layer Body Tempering Realm; why is Senior Brother Gong Yang so fond of him?

Besides that, from Chu Yun’s observation, Xiao Leng was entirely respectful toward Qin Nan; he did not side with Qin Nan just because his sister was Xiao Qingxue.

Why would Xiao Leng, the tenth ranked of the top ten geniuses, respect Qin Nan so much?

“What an interesting guy.” Chu Yun thought in her mind.

At that instant, the disciples found themselves staring at each other.

Now that Chu Yun, Xiao Leng, and Qin Nan are all here for the Three-Petalled Golden Lily, did they really want to stay?

It was impossible to compete against these three with their current strength.

After having this thought, many disciples decided to leave even though they were quite unwilling to do so.

If they were to waste their time here, they would end up not able to get the Three-Petalled Golden Lily, or even getting themselves killed; it would be smarter to go and look for other fortunate encounters on this Island of Versatility.

However, at that instant, a gloomy voice appeared all of a sudden, “Tsk tsk, why are there so many people here? Even Chu Yun and Xiao Leng, two of the top ten geniuses are here too. It looks like everyone knows that this is where the Three-Petalled Golden Lily is. What I did not expect most was to find this trashy Qin Nan here too. Today might be my lucky day…”

Following this gloomy voice, a figure appeared in a flash from the woods, along with a forceful and shocking aura.
