Chapter 632 - Approval of the Four Authoritative Figures
Following this, the letter triggered a great chaos on the Northern Street of the Trading Alliance.
Some thought that Duan Qing was the one behind the robbery, and had purposely left the letter to confuse the Trading Alliance.
However, the majority argued that Duan Qing was not the culprit. If you were saying Duan Qing was guilty, where was the evidence?
Although the Leader of the Trading Alliance and the others really wanted to detain Duan Qing and interrogate him, he was currently at the Vermilion Bird Platoon, leaving them with no choice but to clench their teeth. They could only wait until the Crimson Blood Ocean was activated if they were trying to do something to Duan Qing!
That being said, the Trading Alliance did not suffer any significant loss, although the damage to their reputation could be considered huge.
...Meanwhile, in the mountain range not far from the Vermilion Bird Platoon...
The magnificent Divine Battle Spirit with eight golden rays unleashed a terrifying absorption force that attracted the Qi of the Heavens and Earth. The Qi took the shape of various beasts and elements before entering Qin Nan’s body.
Every beast in the surroundings was scared away by the shocking sight.
This was the capability of an eighth-grade Di ranked Martial Spirit!
Since Qin Nan had returned to the Vermilion Bird Platoon, he had been cultivating there in seclusion.
It had been ten days.
Qin Nan’s eyes sprang open.
The Martial Highness Crystal inside his body let out a buzz while it sucked the Qi accumulated within his body into itself, producing the force of the Martial Highness Realm, resulting in a total of six hundred streams.
“Although the Divine Battle Spirit is eighth-grade Di ranked, leveling up by cultivating alone will probably take some time…”
Qin Nan mumbled to himself.
He had only managed to condense a single stream of the force of the Martial Highness Realm, which meant a hundred days would only produce ten streams. He had no idea how long it would take for him to reach the peak Martial Highness Realm, or even the Undefeatable Martial Highness Realm.
“It’s about time to head to the Crimson Blood Ocean too.”
Qin Nan’s eyes flickered with excitement.
Only a few days left until the Crimson Blood Ocean was activated. He had to make his way there earlier to learn more about the place.
His only concern was whether Tang Qingshan and his crew had managed to rank up to the Martial Sacred Realm successfully within the past month.
“Qin Nan, come to the Vermilion Bird Platoon!”
At that instant, Zhou Bihua’s voice was heard coming from the Vermilion Bird Sacred Badge.
The four experts were awakened?
Qin Nan instantly tore the space apart and returned to the Vermilion Bird Platoon.
As soon as he stepped into the Cultivation Hall, he could see the Sky-Scorching Emperor, the Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird, the Kingdom Protector Black Tortoise, and Zhou Bihua still wearing pale faces with unstable auras, indicating that they still needed a significant amount of time to fully recover.
“Oh Duan Qing, how long did you want to hide the truth? Who would have thought that you’re actually Qin Nan…”
The Sky-Scorching Emperor spoke with a wry smile.
Qin Nan was slightly startled, before glancing at Zhou Bihua and the Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird who were wearing smiles on their faces.
“Kid, don’t worry. Even if you’re Qin Nan, the Sky-Scorching Emperor will not do anything to you,” The Kingdom Protector Black Tortoise said. “The question is, what exactly did you do to provoke the Dao-Seeking Mountain and Progenitor Wen Dao to go crazy on hunting you down?"
Qin Nan was relieved hearing this.
He did have good impressions on the Sky-Scorching Emperor and the others. He did hope his identity would not cause him to part ways with them in the end. However, he ignored the question from the Black Tortoise.
“Qin Nan, what are you planning next?” Zhou Bihua interrupted.
It was not wise for Qin Nan to stay any longer in the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom if he was planning to improve his strength. The best way was to go out there and train himself by going through blood and fire.
“I’ve decided to go to the Crimson Blood Ocean.” Qin Nan replied.
“The Crimson Blood Ocean, huh?” Zhou Bihua paused before he continued, “Not a bad choice, even though some of the successions there are not open yet, you can still find other fortunate encounters. However, the other three factions constantly have their eyes on it, thus it will be quite dangerous. Tell us, what help do you need? Don’t hold back.”
Qin Nan pondered for a moment before he said, “I’ll need Primary Stones, the more the better.”
He had gone through a series of events with Zhou Bihua and the Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird, allowing them to build a close relationship, thus there was indeed no need to be too courteous.
The four experts were speechless hearing this.
They did not expect Qin Nan to have such a low requirement, but most importantly, they could not even fulfill it.
“Qin Nan, to be honest, as we are still recovering our strength, the resources of the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom are almost used up. The Primary Stones we’ve saved were traded with pills and elixirs…” The Sky-Scorching Emperor said in an awkward tone. It was indeed hilarious that the enormous Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom was running out on Primary Stones.
Although it did surprise Qin Nan, he was not too disappointed as he replied with a smile, “It’s fine, I’ll think of some way.”
Following this, the slight hint of hesitation on the face of the Sky-Scorching Emperor vanished, replaced with a determined look, as if he had just made a huge decision.
“Qin Nan, you’ve been a great help to the Sky-Scorching Emperor. We will never mistreat you. Here, take this badge.”
The Sky-Scorching Emperor took a deep breath before handing Qin Nan a badge.
Qin Nan’s eyes widened upon seeing it .
The badge was only the size of a palm, with the magnificent character for ‘Sky-Scorching’ crafted on it.
If the ministers of the kingdom were to see this badge, it would leave them astonished.
This was the Sky-Scorching Badge!
The only badge that had existed for the kingdom since the Deceased Emperor had established the kingdom. Anyone that held the badge could summon the experts and authorities of the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom—including the Vermilion Bird Platoon, etc.—to provide their assistance without bringing any harm to the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom.
It was the first time the badge had been given to someone over the past few thousand years!
“No, I can’t…”
Qin Nan immediately waved his hand to reject the offer. The badge was too valuable, he could not take it.
“You don’t need to reject it. It was all thanks to you that the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom was promised a great future. Therefore, the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom will try its best to fulfill your needs!”
The Sky-Scorching Emperor said sternly.
Previously, after knowing Qin Nan’s identity, his first thought had been to detain him and obtain his secrets. On second thought, Qin Nan had helped them to resurrect the Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird and the Kingdom Protector Black Tortoise, and had solved the crisis due to the Skyhowl White Tiger’s conspiracy.
He had even given the Third Prince the spirit of the Deceased Emperor. Therefore, the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom only needed to wait three years for the return of a terrifying genius with an unlimited future!
However, these points alone were not enough for him to place his bets on Qin Nan.
The biggest contributing factor was the advice from the spirit of the Deceased Emperor before the Third Prince had altered his destiny!
According to the spirit of the Deceased Emperor, Qin Nan was surely extraordinary!
A young man that had helped their kingdom, a young man with a limitless potential, what reason did they have to not place a bet on him?
In addition to the Sky-Scorching Emperor, Zhou Bihua, the Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird, and the Kingdom Protector Black Tortoise wore stern looks on their faces too.
That decision alone represented their willingness to support Qin Nan!
In other words, in the near future...the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom was going to wage a war against the Dao-Seeking Mountain!
Qin Nan exhaled deeply and said.
No matter what the Sky-Scorching Emperor was planning to achieve with this, the Sky-Scorching Badge was an incredible gift without a doubt!
With the support of the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom, he was no longer by himself, but had a formidable faction behind him!
He could even protect himself from being hunted by the Dao-Seeking Mountain!
“Seniors, thanks for the gift. If I succeed one day, I’ll surely repay your kindness!”
The words were uttered firmly.
The four experts had placed a huge bet on the young man, and this young man had given the authorities a promise!
“HAHA, Qin Nan, come, I’ll escort you personally!”
The Kingdom Protector Black Tortoise was feeling extremely pleasant. He transformed into his true form and carried Qin Nan on his back before summoning a rift.
Zhou Bihua, the Blood-Winged Vermilion Bird, and the Sky-Scorching Emperor wore smiles seeing this.
Oh Qin Nan, since you dare to reject the spirit of the Deceased Emperor, we’re looking forward to seeing you fully showcase your true talent in the upper district’s Eastern Continent!
