Chapter 609 - The Treasure Revealed
High up in the sky, within the void, two giant beasts floated in silence while observing everything taking place at the Heaven-Worshipping Feast.
These beats were none other than the Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird and the Kingdom Protector Black Tortoise.
“Old folk, why didn’t we help just then?” The Kingdom Protector Black Tortoise was confused. They could have prevented the worst by stopping Di Fengyun.
“The Deceased Emperor did mention that his treasure would be taken away this year! That was his prophecy, and his will! That kid Duan Qing even has an abundant supply of Primary Force, thus we should not underestimate him. He might end up turning the tables around!” The Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird seemed to be extremely calm.
The Kingdom Protector Black Tortoise opened its mouth. Well, it did make sense that way?
“Duan Qing is making his move!” The Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird straightened its face.
The Kingdom Protector Black Tortoise immediately glanced toward it. Its huge eyes were filled with doubts and anticipation.
Was Duan Qing able to turn the tables around?
...Meanwhile, at the Heaven-Worshipping Ground...
No one expected someone to speak suddenly, and the person turned out to be Duan Qing.
The crowd unconsciously glanced toward him, who walked out from the Emperor’s Seal with a pale face, as if his poison was not yet cured.
However, each step that Duan Qing took was like a thousand pounds, which felt like silent explosions.
“What is he trying to do?”
“I would like to see what plan he has in mind!”
The ministers and experts were doubtful and excited.
It was clear that the situation beforehand had escalated significantly.
There was no way they would think Duan Qing was an idiot, thus he would surely have some reason to show such confidence.
“Senior, I would like to take part in the trial too!”
Qin Nan landed outside the barrier and brought his fists together toward the knight.
The words stunned the crowd.
Duan Qing was planning to take part in the trial, did he have an eighth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit?
The Skyhowl White Tiger and Di Fengyun straightened their faces.
“Duan Qing! Don’t be ruthless! Your Martial Spirit’s rank is not high enough, you can’t take part in it!” Zhou Bihua snapped.
He knew Qin Nan’s limit; he only had a sixth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit!
Zhou Bihua’s words stunned the crowd, who were even more confused.
If Duan Qing’s Martial Spirit rank was not high enough, how could he take part in the trial? Wasn’t it committing suicide if he was trying to force it?
Why would Duan Qing be that idiotic?
Di Fengyun collected his thoughts and let out a sigh of relief, before he burst out laughing, “HAHAHA, Duan Qing, are you seriously planning to take part in the trial even though your Martial Spirit’s rank is not qualified enough? Stop dreaming!”
Following his words, a piercing sound took place, who appeared to be Qin Nan speeding up as he charged toward the barrier.
The crowd was stupefied.
What was Duan Qing trying to do?
The Sky-Scorching Emperor was confused and astonished. Was Duan Qing trying to take part in the trial with the help of the Demon God’s Robe since his Martial Spirit’s rank was not high enough? The question was, would he still lose in the trial due to the rank of his Martial Spirit.
What was he thinking?
In the blink of an eye, the crowd could see Qin Nan’s figure stepping into the barrier.
Zhou Bihua, Lin Fengxiao, Elder Wang, and the others were astounded. They completely panicked, as they were afraid that the knight would destroy Duan Qing straight away!
However, a few breaths after, Zhou Bihua and the others realized something.
Instead of attacking, the knight nodded his head slightly at Duan Qing, giving him the permission to take part in the trial!
“How is this possible? Your Martial Spirit’s rank is not qualified, but why are you allowed to participate in the trial?” Di Fengyun stared at Qin Nan in disbelief with his eyes open wide.
“My Martial Spirit’s rank is not qualified? Who told you that? Do you really think that you’re the only one with an eighth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit?”
Qin Nan uttered a roar and stomped his foot at the ground.
Golden rays were emitted from his back.
The fifth ray!
The sixth ray!
The seventh ray!
As it reached the eighth ray, a giant figure emerged within the golden rays, standing firmly while unleashing a terrifying suppression that swept the crowd.
Divine Battle Spirit, unleashed!
“Open your eyes and look carefully, my Martial Spirit is of the eighth-grade Di rank!”
As Qin Nan unleashed his Martial Spirit, his aura changed tremendously, as if he was possessed by the Divine God of Battle. The aura was fired into the sky, sharp like a blade!
Meanwhile, Di Fengyun, the Skyhowl White Tiger, the Sky-Scorching Emperor, Lin Fengxiao, and the crowd were stupefied seeing this.
What was going on?
How could Duan Qing’s Martial Spirit be eighth-grade Di ranked?
They subconsciously glanced at Zhou Bihua. Didn’t Zhou Bihua say that Duan Qing’s Martial Spirit’s rank was not high enough!
Meanwhile, Zhou Bihua entirely lost his mind, with his face filled with astonishment. He could not believe his eyes at all.
The people from the lower district clearly knew that Qin Nan’s Martial Spirit was sixth-grade Di ranked.
Besides, even Progenitor Wen Dao and the others had witnessed it with their own eyes!
Why...why was it eighth-grade Di ranked now?
At that instant, the entire Heaven-Worshipping Ground fell into a dead silence.
A moment later, the crowd collected their thoughts. The Third Prince in particular was exceedingly excited.
“An eighth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit! Duan Qing’s Martial Spirit is eighth-grade Di ranked!”
“Nice, this is superb! It’s hard to tell who would come first in the trial between the two now!”
“Oh Duan Qing, what a huge surprise you’ve given us!”
The people who were siding with the Vermilion Bird Platoon and the Black Tortoise Platoon became energetic, with their morale boosted.
Before this, Di Fengyun was the only one with an eighth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit, thus they had no chance of stopping him.
And now, Duan Qing could retrieve the treasure too!
How could they not be joyful after seeing a glimpse of hope when they were completely hopeless!
Meanwhile, the expressions of the Skyhowl White Tiger, Di Fengyun, and the experts of the White Tiger Platoon turned dark instantly!
They did not expect that a mere Duan Qing was the one that would disrupt their plan in the end!
This goddamned Duan Qing!
He was hiding the rank of his Martial Spirit!
If they knew this would happen, they would have eliminated him at any cost!
However, it was too late to do anything now.
“There are two geniuses in the trial, and the winner takes away the treasure!” Meanwhile, the knight ignored the restless crowd and declared, “The Deceased Emperor mentioned that the treasure is left for the fated one! The trial is not looking at your cultivation, Martial Skill Talent, or Martial Spirit. Only the destined one will be chosen! Now…the treasure will be revealed!”
Following his words...
The sound of gears activating could be heard, as the chest of the statue slowly opened, revealing a huge door. As the door was opened, a terrifying aura burst out from it!
The treasure was revealed!
