The entire Heaven-Worshipping Ground fell dead silent.
Zhou Bihua, the Skyhowl White Tiger, the Sky-Scorching Emperor, Lin Fengxiao, Di Fengyun, the Third Prince, and the rest of the crowd had their eyes open wide with a blank expression.
The Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird and the Kingdom Protector Black Tortoise within the void were dumbfounded.
He rejected it!
Duan Qing rejected the offer!
That was a tenth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit, a chance to achieve the Martial Progenitor Realm!
Normally, due to the limitation of the Canglan Continent’s Martial Spirits, it was impossible to reach the legendary realms without an outstanding Martial Spirit. The only way was to alter their destiny by discarding their Martial Spirit and obtaining a new one!
However, such opportunities were incredibly rare!
Currently, Duan Qing had been provided with a great opportunity, one that made Di Fengyun and the Skyhowl White Tiger crazy, but he had rejected it!
“You’re not willing to? Why?”
The voice of the Spirit of the Deceased Emperor turned icy, as he had expected the young man to be overjoyed.
Whatever the reason, him rejecting the offer did not make any sense!
“Mm.” Qin Nan acknowledged and said in a serious tone, “Senior, I won’t give up on my Martial Spirit.”
Qin Nan’s words brought everyone back to reality.
“This guy is crazy! He’s not willing to sacrifice his eighth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit!”
“Is there something wrong with his brain! Can’t he distinguish the difference between an eighth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit and a tenth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit!”
The crowd was extraordinary furious.
If they were given the opportunity, they would be willing to replace their Martial Spirit with a ninth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit, let alone a tenth-grade Di rank! Any of them were better than an eighth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit!
Zhou Bihua and the others could feel their hearts falling into a canyon. There was no turning back now, as Duan Qing had rejected the offer, thus there was no way the Deceased Emperor would hand the Martial Spirit to Duan Qing!
The victory was supposed to be theirs...but they’d lost now!
The Sky-Scorching Emperor’s face turned ashen. Duan Qing had given up on such a great opportunity merely because of an eighth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit.
In contrast, the pale faces of the Skyhowl White Tiger and Di Fengyun, and the experts from the White Tiger Platoon instantly reddened. Their eyes filled with joy.
Duan Qing, great job!
They no longer bore any hatred toward Duan Qing, but a great adoration instead. They almost lost control and gave him their compliments straight away!
“Did you just say that you’re not willing to give up on your eighth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit? Is that the reason you’ve given up on such a huge opportunity?” In addition to the crowd, the Spirit of the Deceased Emperor became infuriated too.
He would not be this angry if it were some other reason, but Duan Qing’s words had caused him to feel humiliated!
“I’m sorry, but my Martial Spirit is the best opportunity I was given in my life!”
Qin Nan calmly said.
Are you kidding me? Among the countless Martial Spirits in the world, what Martial Spirit would stand a chance against the Divine Battle Spirit?
“Are you implying that I’m nothing comparing to your eighth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit?” The Spirit of the Deceased Emperor became even angrier and lost his stance, “Who do you think you are with a mere eighth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit? I could easily crush you with the slightest movement!”
No one would doubt the words.
A tenth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit could easily overwhelm an eighth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit.
However, upon hearing this, the rage within Qin Nan’s heart rose rapidly.
“Crush my Martial Spirit? With your mere rank of the tenth-grade Di rank? I’ll teach you how insignificant you are, stop pretending that you’re are the greatest grace for me! Besides, I do advise you not to challenge my Martial Spirit!”
Qin Nan’s face coldened.
Previously, Qin Nan had kindly rejected the offer as he was treating the Spirit of the Deceased Emperor like his senior.
However, to Qin Nan’s surprise, the Spirit of the Deceased Emperor dared to challenge his Divine Battle Spirit!
What right did he have to look down on the Divine Battle Spirit?
The crowd never thought that it would come to this. The fury within their hearts instantly exploded.
“This Duan Qing is out of his mind! He has no respect for the Deceased Emperor!”
“How stupid could he be!”
“Who does he think he is to act so ruthlessly!”
The Heaven-Worshipping Ground was filled with raging cries.
“Calling me a mere tenth-grade Di rank, giving me a piece of advice as well? Well said!” The Spirit of the Deceased Emperor repeated Qin Nan’s words before a terrifying suppression burst out from his figure, “Kid, let me teach you the definition of a tenth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit! And the true significance of the limitation of the Canglan Continent’s Martial Spirits!”
A boundless pressure could be felt as the Spirit of the Deceased Emperor stomped his foot on the ground and threw a punch at Qin Nan’s Divine Battle Spirit.
Besides him, Di Fengyun’s Martial Spirit was instantly suppressed by the aura, causing it to tremble violently.
That was the suppression between Martial Spirits!
“You’re trying to target my Martial Spirit?”
Qin Nan was startled, before a great murderous intent emerged within his eyes.
How bold of this Spirit of the Deceased Emperor!
He became infuriated and attacked his Divine Battle Spirit when he had only rejected his offer!
“Even though my Divine Battle Spirit is only eighth-grade Di ranked, it’s not something you can afford to challenge!”
Qin Nan uttered a roar as he immersed his will into the Divine Battle Spirit, controlling it to charge toward the Spirit of the Deceased Emperor.
The Spirit of the Deceased Emperor descended like a mystical being from heaven and flung his hand downward toward the Divine Battle Spirit, resulting in a terrifying force, which caused the Divine Battle Spirit to sink downward as if it were about to be crushed into the ground.
“See that? That’s the power of a tenth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit! Your eighth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit has no chance against it! Now, kneel down before me!” The Spirit of the Deceased Emperor let out a furious cry as the suppression of the tenth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit was fully unleashed onto the Divine Battle Spirit like a surging flood.
Qin Nan’s eyes reddened. The Spirit of the Deceased Emperor was forcing him to drop to his knees!
At that instant, the statue, the Heaven-Worshipping Ground, the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom, the Eastern Continent...and the entire Canglan Continent completely froze, as if time had stopped.
The left eye of the Divine Battle Spirit suddenly emitted a glow, while its illusionary left arm materialized too.
A shocking anger swept the entire continent as if it was emitted from a great distance away, causing it to quaver.
The rage of the Divine God of Battle!
