Chapter 1112 - The Taciturn Heart
Qin Nan glanced in the other direction.
Even though he was not too fond of Yu Qingtong on account of her personality, she was still their ally after all, thus it was expected for them to help each other.
Qin Nan swung the saber and shattered the magical force. He was stunned when he saw the sight before him.
Standing in front of Yu Qingtong was none other than the first-ranked genius on the Monarch Ranking, Shi Qingfan.
Unlike the Sage and the Sorceress, their atmosphere was quite romantic.
“Qin Nan? What are you doing?” Yu Qingtong was confused.
“I’ll help you kill him.” Qin Nan sprang forward and thrust with the Heaven-Shattering Saber, aiming in Shi Qingfan’s direction.
“Don’t!” Yu Qingtong was instantly startled, who stood in front of Shi Qingfan, using her body as a shield. “He’s my Senior Brother’s Primary Force, you can’t harm it!”
Qin Nan frowned, "Primary Force? He’s lying to you. It’s only an illusion. Stop losing yourself.”
“Illusion? Even if it’s an illusion, I won’t let you kill him too!” Yu Qingtong did not believe a single word. Her face as filled with a determined look as she performed a hand seal, emitting a mystical glow that encapsulated Shi Qingfan’s figure behind her, “If you want to kill him, you will have to kill me first!”
Qin Nan was quite surprised. He did not expect this woman who was scornful and extremely afraid of dying would be willing to sacrifice everything for Shi Qingfan. Qin Nan quickly glanced at Shi Qingfan and saw the smirk on his face. His gaze instantly coldened as he prepared his attack.
However, the voice of the Monarch Envoy could be heard at that instant.
“Qin Nan and Chen Zilai have finished their missions. They will now return to the dojo.”
Before Qin Nan could react, two powerful forces appeared from the rift and enclosed Qin Nan and Chen Zilai’s figures, causing them to disappear.
Yu Qingtong let out a relieved sigh as she wore a charming smile.
Everything was worth it as long as she managed to protect Senior Brother’s Primary Force.
She suddenly recalled something and glanced in the direction of the remaining magical force on the other side of the village, causing her to be confused. Why was the Death Cultivator still there? Why didn’t Qin Nan help her?
Little did Yu Qingtong know that inside the magical force on the other side, the Death Cultivator Jiang Bilan was wearing an icy look.
“I’ll repeat it one more time. I don’t love you; enough with your wishful thinking.”
Jiang Bilan took a deep breath and said in a cold tone.
The Qin Nan standing in front of her shrugged and said with a smile, “Of course you don’t love me, you’re in love with the real Qin Nan, right? Why did you reject him when he offered to help? Weren’t you just trying to stop him from discovering your little secret?”
Jiang Bilan’s face remained expressionless, but the Death Qi in her palm caused the surrounding temperature to drop rapidly.
“Do you really want to kill me? If you do so, Qin Nan will be severely injured.” Qin Nan’s gaze sharpened.
“You can trick the others with the same lie, but do you really think it will work on me?” Jiang Bilan’s eyes flickered with disdain as she dashed forward and launched the Death Qi.
Qin Nan’s expression changed slightly as he dodged the attack with a close call. However, Jiang Bilan had already anticipated his movement. She flipped her palm, causing the Death Qi to transform into giant snakes, which turned around and tore at Qin Nan.
Qin Nan let out a cry of agony as he was bitten by the snakes.
Jiang Bilan’s lips moved slightly, but she withheld the urge in the end.
Qin Nan burst out laughing in a mocking manner all of a sudden.
“What are you laughing at?”
Jiang Bilan frowned slightly.
“I”m not surprised that you actually want to kill me. Previously in the lower district, you tried to do so many times for my treasure! I barely survived them! Even though you have helped me a couple of times since then, it’s just your disguise!” Qin Nan said with a grin, “I clearly know your character; you’re just a vicious, evil woman! You will do anything just to get what you want...”
Jiang Bilan’s face became pale instantly.
She had been trying hard to convince herself that everything there was not real. The person in front of her was not Qin Nan.
However, the words stabbed her heart quickly like a saber.
What else could she say?
It was true that she had tried to kill Qin Nan several times!
Qin Nan smirked when he saw her reaction. He used the force in his body to suppress the snakes while he slowly approached Jiang Bilan, holding the saber in his hand and penetrated it into her chest and her heart once again.
...Meanwhile, in the half-God region of Canglan Continent, the Lost Herb Garden...
Inside an ancient, mysterious palace, Princess Miao Miao’s face suddenly turned pale white as she spat out a mouthful of blood. Her powerful aura weakened rapidly.
It felt like she was being slashed by an invisible saber.
“Princ...Princess? What happened? What the hell happened? How did you lose so much of your Primary Force all of a sudden?” A panicked voice could be heard as a woman wearing a blue long dress hurried her way toward the Princess.
“Stop making such a great fuss, it’s nothing.”
Princess Miao Miao waved her hand. However, her expression changed tremendously as she spat out another mouthful of blood.
“Are you seriously telling me you’re fine!” The woman was infuriated, “What exactly is going on, why would you lose so much of your Primary Force for no reason? Were you doing something for Qin Nan again without my knowing?”
“Stop speaking nonsense, he has nothing to do with this.” Princess Miao Miao glared at her.
“Nothing to do with him? You’ve already wasted so much Primary Force to craft the pendant for him. You’re now in the Lost Herb Garden, why would you become injured out of nowhere...” The woman became more furious.
“Enough! Stop it!”
Princess Miao Miao straightened her face.
The woman was trying to say something, but none of her words would come out from her mouth. She let out a helpless sigh and took out her badge to make preparations to help the Princess with her injuries.
Princess Miao Miao wore a crafty gaze after seeing this.
Senior would stop blaming her every time she acted as if she was angry.
“That being said, that Monarch Ranking is such a baddie! Does it really need to do that to me just because I interrupted its shameless method?”
Princess Miao Miao clenched her teeth as she recalled the previous incident, which took her a while to calm her thoughts.
Princess Miao Miao softly called out the name in her heart, causing her to lose her thoughts for a moment before she swung her fist around.
Qin Nan, you have to succeed.
Secure the Monarch Horoscope and stun the world.
Even though she was not in the Middle Continent, she would still be putting her attention on him in the palace.
