Peerless Battle Spirit - Chapter 2261: Unrest and Conspiracy, Part Five
Chapter 2261: Unrest and Conspiracy, Part Five
Some time later, Qin Nan and the others took their seats in a palace.
In addition to the Rulers of Dao of the three Supreme Daoism factions, Moxie, Demon Emperor Wutian, Brave Wolf Ruler, and Four Demons Ruler were with them too.
“Cultivator Qin, even though we have failed to eliminate Cang this time, the benefits we have gotten are rather impressive too. We have secured an Orb of the Heavenly Emperor while you and Empress Feiyue have claimed an orb spirit, but regarding Empress Feiyue…”
Progenitor Linghuang was the first to speak, but he suddenly paused in the middle of his sentence.
It was obvious what he was trying to say.
Things were no longer the same. Empress Feiyue was now the reincarnation of Cang’s daughter.
“I have no use for the orb spirit.”
Empress Feiyue immediately offered the orb spirit.
“Empress, you may take it back.”
Qin Nan said sternly, “Fellow seniors, I know you all have some concerns about her, but I absolutely trusted the Empress. You shouldn’t have any ill feelings toward her too. If you do, we shall dismiss our alliance here.”
Progenitor Mingchu and the others exchanged glances. They did not expect Qin Nan to treat Empress Feiyue so dearly.
Progenitor Linghuang smiled and said, “That was my bad, but Qin Nan, there’s no need to be angry about it. I’m familiar with the Empress too, but I would like to ask the Empress to be more cautious as Cang might use the opportunity to convert you to his side.”
Empress Feiyue acknowledged without saying a word.
Progenitor Shuangdao lowered his cup of tea and said, “Qin Nan, Cang wasn’t reincarnated. He was reborn instead. Everyone can foresee he’s going to establish a terrifying faction in the Primary Upper Realm since we have failed to kill him.”
“In addition to him, Ye Zhaoxian has been reborn too and has organized an expedition to the Blue Heavens next month. More Heaven Highnesses are going to show up by then.”
“I believe it’s necessary to move the Heaven Illusionary Ancestor Sect, Sanqing Ancient Sect, and the Sky Taihuang Sect to the Undying Cycle Mountain to defend ourselves! We can also share our resources so our disciples can become stronger quicker!”
Qin Nan did not give his answer. He thought about it and asked Zhou Xundao’s advice before he said, “That’s a plausible idea.”
Ruler Qingyu said, “Qin Nan, we didn’t have a chance to ask you before. Who was the Peerless Ruler that Heaven Highness Wuwang possessed before?”
Qin Nan’s expression sank a little as he answered, “To be frank with you all, he was my Senior Brother in the Secondary Lower Realm. He’s extremely important to me. I’ll try my best to figure out a way to help him reclaim his will.”
Progenitor Mingchu, Progenitor Qingyu, and the others exchanged glances and saw the worry in one another’s eyes.
They were aware of how seriously Qin Nan treated the people who were dear to him, but it also meant Cang had the initiative if someone like that had fallen into Cang’s hands.
“Qin Nan, what’s your next step?” Progenitor Mingchu asked.
“Fellow seniors, you don’t have to worry about me. You should focus on preparing for the next month and once the place to ascend to the Heaven Highness Realm is established, you should achieve the Heaven Highness Realm as soon as possible.”
“As for me, I’ll be cultivating in seclusion to reach the peak Master Realm and attempt to break through to the Ruler Realm!”
Qin Nan’s eyes burst into flames.
Once he achieved the Ruler Realm, he could awaken the Ownerless Heaven Pattern and learn the way to awaken Tang Qingshan so they would no longer have to be passive.
Similarly, Cang and Ye Zhaoxian were both in their weakest state. He would only stand a chance against them by achieving the Ruler Realm as soon as possible.
If his strength did not grow in time before Cang and Ye Zhaoxian reclaimed their strength, the latter might not be a threat since they had no conflict of interest, but the former would definitely reach out his claws at him.
“The Supreme Haotian Badge has been destroyed when Empress Feiyue broke through to the Ruler Realm. It’s no longer possible to trigger the Battle of the Masters. Your only option is to wait until the Hundred Years Oath.”
“However, if I remember correctly, the Hundred Years Oath is still around seventy years away!” Progenitor Mingchu said.
The others immediately frowned.
They agreed with Qin Nan’s thought process.
Seventy years were not that long in the past, but it was too much time under the current circumstances.
Moxie interrupted with a smile, “It’s not that troublesome for you to achieve the Ruler Realm. You just have to find your flesh and merge with it for you to exceed your limits.”
Progenitor Mingchu and the others were startled.
Huangfu Jue had left his flesh too?
They immediately looked at Qin Nan.
Zhou Xundao who was in Qin Nan’s soul shook his head. This Moxie was getting impatient.
“To be honest with you all, I can only sense Huangfu Jue’s flesh faintly. I have no clue how long it would take for me to find it if I merely followed my instincts,” Qin Nan shook his head and said.
“My master, I’ve discussed with the others after you mentioned the problem to me last time. We realized that if we establish the Thousand Demon Formation for you, it should strengthen your senses by more than ten times,” Moxie said with a smile.
Qin Nan frowned.
“We still have other options.”
Empress Feiyue suddenly spoke with a cold voice, “The requirement of achieving the Ruler Realm is just a great scene with a certain number of Masters of Dao.”
“First, we can try to repair the Supreme Haotian Badge.”
“Second, we can attract the Masters of Dao to a place with something they couldn’t resist.”
Demon Emperor Wutian immediately rebuked, “It’s not a bad idea, but I’m afraid none of them are easy to achieve.”
Empress Feiyue responded without looking at him, “We will only know the outcome until we try.”
The authorities agreed with her.
They could already tell Qin Nan was against the idea of merging with Huangfu Jue’s flesh.
The Rulers of Dao could easily guess that Qin Nan was worried he might lose himself after merging with Huangfu Jue’s flesh.
If he did lose his will, it was not going to benefit them either.
Progenitor Shuangdao put his tea cup down and wrapped up the meeting, “Actually, in my opinion, it’s still too early to be discussing this now. Cultivator Qin is still in the Greater Success Stage of the Master Realm. He’s quite a distance away from the peak Master Realm.”
“Therefore, we should prioritize on searching for the last Orb of the Heavenly Emperor.”
“We currently have two orb spirits in our possession. We can try contacting other formidable factions and join hands with them.”
“Cultivator Qin, what do you say?”
Qin Nan’s eyes flickered. He said, “You are right.”
He was so focused on the idea of achieving the Ruler Realm that he had ignored the other possibility. He could obtain the origin force through the Orbs of the Heavenly Emperor.
He could use the origin force to repair the Ownerless Heaven Pattern too!
“Let’s get on with it. We can’t afford to waste our time.”
The three Supreme Daoism factions had begun to treat Qin Nan as their leader.
The authorities knew they were already on the same boat. If they wanted to achieve greatness in this new era, they had to keep working together with Qin Nan.
