Chapter 637 - I’ll Drink with Him
As the leader of the Three Stars, Du Ping’s cultivation had reached the eighth-layer Martial Highness Realm, allowing him to be ranked twenty-fifth on the Hidden Dragon Ranking!
Either way, Duan Qing had no chance against him with his cultivation of the fifth-layer Martial Highness Realm.
Qin Nan’s figure tensed at that instant as he rapidly unleashed the force of the Martial Highness Realm, while his left eye emitted a thunderous flicker that detected the path of the attack. His body slanted sideways and dodged the attack.
Although the left eye of the Divine God of Battle was able to predict the path of the attack, it was so sudden that even Qin Nan could feel his hair standing on end.
“Mm?” Du Ping’s eyes flickered with astonishment. This Duan Qing was extraordinary indeed, to be able to dodge his attack with a mere cultivation of the fifth-layer Martial Highness Realm.
The rest of the crowd was stunned too. It appeared that they had underestimated Duan Qing’s strength.
At that instant, Qin Nan suddenly made his move with the tip of his toe and slashed forward ferociously. The angle of the slash was sharp; not only was it aiming at Du Ping’s weakest point, it even prevented him from dodging it in time!
At that instant, Du Yuan and Du Feng uttered a roar and sprang in Qin Nan’s direction from both sides, positioning themselves behind Qin Nan. They took out various glowing artifacts and attacked Qin Nan.
The trio were planning to fight Duan Qing at the same time!
Qin Nan twisted his figure into a strange stance to dodge the two attacks. At that instant, a powerful force approached him from below, which turned out to be Du Ping grabbing ahold of the slight opportunity. Even Qin Nan failed to predict the attack to be able to dodge it.
The Demon God’s Robe emitted a black glow while covering Qin Nan’s chest, blocking Du Ping’s attack.
Qin Nan’s figure was instantly sent flying by the blow.
“Such a powerful robe!”
The trio was astounded, as they had not expected the ordinary-looking black robe to display such outstanding defense. However, their astonishment only lasted half a breath’s time, as they charged toward Qin Nan in a ferocious manner like three tigers descending from the mountain, giving Qin Nan no time to catch his breath.
“Left eye of the Divine God of Battle!”
Qin Nan had already reacted the moment his body was sent flying. He gathered his focus and predicted the movements of the trio with his left eye.
Despite that, the combined strength of the Three Stars was too overwhelming, causing him to be constantly knocked back.
The crowd could not help but inhale deeply. They were amazed by Qin Nan’s strength. The cultivation of the Three Stars were the eighth-layer, seventh-layer, and sixth-layer Martial Highness Realm respectively. Although they had yet to unleash any powerful moves, there was no chance an ordinary genius could face them at the same time.
Not to mention the fact that Qin Nan only had a cultivation of the fifth-layer Martial Highness Realm!
His performance was already astounding!
A loud roar could be heard all of a sudden as a powerful suppression descended upon the place.
The person was a middle-aged man wearing a blue robe. A rumbling sound could be heard from his body as if an ocean was uttering a ferocious roar within his body.
The man was none other than the Patriarch of the Luan Clan, the City Lord Luan Chengjie, whose cultivation had reached the peak Martial Highness Realm!
“Three Stars, Duan Qing, show me some respect and stop fighting, alright? If you have something to settle between yourselves, feel free to do so outside the Disordered Ocean City, or at the Crimson Blood Ocean.” Luan Chengjie unleashed his force of the Martial Highness Realm while staring at the four.
“Uhh….Fine! I’m more than happy to give the City Lord face and let him live another day!”
Du Ping, Du Yuan, and Du Feng had been planning to humiliate Duan Qing today, but his strength had completely surprised them. If they continued the fight and unleashed their powerful moves, it would not bring them any good. They would be targeted by the experts of the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom.
“Phew! My strength is still too weak. I have to find some way to rank up my cultivation!”
Qin Nan stabilized himself and tried to catch his breath. He was confident in facing an opponent alone, including Du Ping, but it was impossible for him to fight one-on-one battles at the Crimson Blood Ocean, as he would be facing a group at a time by himself.
Therefore, his first priority was to improve his strength.
“Thanks for listening to my advice.” Luan Chengjie seemed to be in a great mood as he smilingly said, “Today, it’s rare to see four geniuses on the Hidden Dragon Ranking arrive at the Disordered Ocean City. As your senior, I shall let you have a taste of our clan’s most precious drink, the Seven Godly Brew!”
The words caused the crowd to become envious. As the people of the Luan Clan were experts in water-type Martial Skills, many were experts in brewing wines as well. The Seven Godly Brew was incredibly well-known in the Eastern Continent.
In addition to its outstanding taste, it would bring great benefits to one’s cultivation too. Normal people would not have the chance to drink it.
The eyes of the trio glistened hearing this, especially Du Ping, who was a passionate drinker. He clapped his hands and blurted out, “Sounds great! Thanks for the treat!”
“It’s nothing worth mentioning. Enjoy as you please!”
Luan Chengjie shook his head smilingly and waved his hand, dropping four jade jars before Du Ping, Du Yuan, Du Feng, and Qin Nan. The crowd’s attention was immediately grabbed by the sight.
Qin Nan lowered his head and glanced at the jade jar. Inside it was a combination of seven different types of liquid with different colors, resulting in a mystical glow.
A pleasant scent instantly filled the hall, causing many cultivators to sniff and enjoy the aroma.
Even Qin Nan could not help but exclaim that the scent alone was enough to trigger one’s desire to drink it.
“Interesting, let’s take a sip…”
Qin Nan brought his hands together toward Luan Chengjie before he poured himself a cup and drank it.
At that instant, seven different tastes exploded in his mouth, before merging into one with an indescribable aroma, resulting in an unforgettable experience.
Following this, a powerful stream of force burst out from the drink and flowed into his limbs.
“Mm? Such a powerful force!” Qin Nan was startled. Although he knew that the Seven Godly Brew was nothing ordinary, he did not expect that a small cup of it could possess such a tremendous force. Any third-layer Martial Highness Realm cultivator would end up blowing up due to the overwhelming force.
Even Qin Nan felt slightly tipsy after drinking it. If he were to take another sip, he would most likely pass out.
At that instant, a rare phenomenon took place. The Martial Highness Crystal in his body emitted a strong absorption force, which consumed the force of the Seven Godly Brew, before producing a stream of Chaos Qi.
Despite Qin Nan’s reddened face, the previous tipsy feeling had vanished. As a matter of fact, his thoughts were even clearer now.
“How impressive of the Martial Highness Crystal. No wonder it’s considered law-defying. It’s able to transform the power of the wine into a stream of the force of the Martial Highness Realm. It can even get rid of my tipsiness.” Qin Nan’s eyes flickered with joy.
He was surprised by the various capabilities of the Martial Highness Crystal.
“Too bad, there wasn’t a lot of the Seven Godly Brew…”
Qin Nan glanced at the remaining liquid in the jade jar. There was only a cup left. Besides that, he was not familiar with Luan Chengjie and the Luan Clan, thus he could not request more Seven Godly Brew from them.
At that instant, Du Feng suddenly thought of something and transmitted his voice to Du Ping and Du Yuan, causing their eyes to glitter.
“Duan Qing!” Du Ping let out a roar, giving the crowd a scare.
Luan Chengjie frowned. What did the Three Stars want this time?
“Duan Qing! I’m not satisfied yet as the battle was interrupted!” Du Ping let out a hollow laugh and said, “How about this—let’s see who can drink the most Seven Godly Brew today!”
It was common for the cultivators of the Eastern Continent to compete with one another while drinking wines. The reason being that when drinking good-quality wines, without an outstanding cultivation, overdrinking would bring damage to the cultivator, or even cause their body to explode.
The crowd did not expect Du Ping to challenge Duan Qing to a drinking contest. Du Ping’s cultivation was the eighth-layer Martial Highness Realm while Duan Qing was only at the fifth-layer Martial Highness Realm. The difference between them was too great, thus it would be unfair!
“Patriarch Luan, is it possible for us to buy the Seven Godly Brew if Duan Qing is willing to accept the challenge? We can also introduce you to our Supreme Elder. I believe he would be willing to meet you too.” Du Feng and Du Yuan said to Luan Chengjie.
“Don’t worry about paying, I’ll bring the wines out!” Luan Chengjie turned excited. He was more than happy to build a connection with the Trading Alliance by earning a favor from the Three Stars.
It was definitely a good deal for him!
“So? Duan Qing? Do you dare to accept the challenge?” Du Ping unleashed a magnificent aura as if he was looking down on Qin Nan.
Qin Nan frowned slightly.
At that instant, Luan Chengjie smilingly spoke as well, “Cultivator Duan Qing, it’s common to see people have this friendly drinking competition here at our Luan Clan. Most of them use it as a way to settle disputes! I believe you’re not satisfied with the outcome of the battle previously as you’re the top genius of the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom, right? Why don’t accept the challenge? I assure you that I have enough Seven Godly Brew for it…”
Qin Nan glanced at Luan Chengjie, who was convincing him for the Three Stars.
Well, don’t blame me later.
“I agree, let’s have a drinking contest.”
Qin Nan wore a calm expression.
The rogue cultivators and the disciples of the Dao-Seeking Mountain and the Wanxiang Pavilion were startled. Why had Duan Qing accepted the challenge?
“Very well!” Du Ping was overjoyed. Following this, his eyes emitted an icy glow. You dare to compete against me? I’m going to give you a hard time!
“HAHA, Cultivator Duan Qing is indeed an impressive genius, showing such remarkable courage. You, go and get some Seven Godly Brews here!” Luan Chengjie burst out laughing and uttered the command.”
However, a rare occurrence took place at that instant.
A terrifying aura could be felt from the entrance of the hall, resulting in a powerful gust sweeping the place, causing the chairs and tables to shake vigorously.
The aura was even more terrifying than Luan Chengjie’s!
“I’ll drink with him!”
Despite the calm voice, it was as if it possessed some incredible magic to it, causing the crowd to have goosebumps as they heard it.
The person was… Zhu Hang!
