Chapter 329 - A Bet
...Duanmu Peak, on top of the mountain...
The other two Peak Leaders of the Qinglong Sacred Area could no longer sit tight as they uttered a roar, "Feiyang Sacred Area, what do you guys mean? Do you guys really plan to acquire all of the geniuses?"
"Humph! Your Peak Leader Duanmu promised to give Jiao Zhe to the Feiyang Sacred Area. Are you going back on your words now?" The Peak Leader of the Feiyang Sacred Area snapped.
The two Peak Leaders of the Qinglong Sacred Area held their breaths; even the newly arrived Peak Leader was startled as he gazed at Peak Leader Duanmu.
"My words are as solid as a thousand gold. Jiao Zhe is yours!" Peak Leader Duanmu spoke in a calm tone. A result of five hundred and ninety-nine Dao-Seeking Fish was indeed impressive, but he was extremely confident that these bunch of Peak Leaders of the Feiyang Sacred Area will be regretful to the max after Qin Nan took his turn.
The three Peak Leaders of the Qinglong Sacred Area were left speechless.
They could still accept giving up on Jiao Shiyi, but this Jiao Zhe was someone who had attracted five hundred and ninety-nine Dao-Seeking Fish; a rare talented genius, How could they give up so easily?
The words of the Peak Leaders were made clear to the envoys below too, who were immersed in a chatter.
"HAHAHA! Jiao Zhe belongs to our Feiyang Sacred Area!"
"What the f**k, how is that possible? Why would Peak Leader Duanmu give him to you guys?"
"What's going on? Why would Peak Leader Duanmu give up on a genius like Jiao Zhe!"
In comparison to the uproar taking place at the Duanmu Peak, the dojo encapsulated within the barrier was relatively quiet. The geniuses were utterly stunned by the sight before them, and were left speechless on the spot.
"Jiao Shiyi, see that?"
Jiao Zhe slowly rose from the ground and spoke.
Jiao Shiyi's face turned pale.
He had not expected his elder brother to attract five hundred and ninety-nine Dao-Seeking Fish, ninety more than him!
What shall I do now; do I really have to obey every word Jiao Zhe says from today onward?
"I, Jiao Shiyi, am a man of my words, and I'll never regret what I said!"
Jiao Shiyi's figure trembled as he said while clenched his teeth, as if the words were forced out from the gap between his teeth.
It was impossible to imagine what his life would be without Jiang Bilan, but he had already uttered an oath just then. Despite the pain in his heart, he had no choice but to fulfill his promise!
Jiao Shiyi turned around and glanced at Jiang Bilan, but before he said anything, he realized that Jiang Bilan's gaze was focused on Qin Nan's figure, which made him feel that he was suffocating, as if his soul was being grabbed by a giant hand.
Jiao Zhe shook his head and let out a sigh after seeing this.
The crowd collected their thoughts and glanced at both Jiao Zhe and Jiao Shiyi with utter respect. Although they were not clear on the conflict between these two brothers, their results were enough to conquer the scene, causing them to feel slightly jealous.
"Damn it, my turn now!"
"Let's see how many Dao-Seeking Fish I can attract!"
The geniuses turned incredibly passionate, as they took turns taking the trial with great anticipation.
As for Jiao Shiyi, he continued to stare at Jiang Bilan, whose gaze was locked onto Qin Nan's figure.
On the other hand, Qin Nan had no idea of what was taking place right now, as he was immersed in his Dantian.
The grey Inner Core inside his body suddenly emitted streams of a golden glow, which coiled around the Core and at last, resulted in its surface being marked with nine golden lines. The whole Inner Core was now shining brightly with a mysterious aura, which felt like a golden core.
Qin Nan straightened his eyes.
It was because the aura of the Inner Core was finally completed, as it emitted a continuous force from his body and communicated with the Heavens and Earth.
The force appeared to be his Inner Core communicating with the Heavens and Earth, in order to trigger the Tribulation!
"I can finally level up now!"
Qin Nan turned joyful; his Inner Core had suffered a great amount, and it was finally time for hope to arrive.
The change of his Inner Core caused him to be immersed in a great joy. However, after opening his eyes, he was surprised to see Jiang Bilan staring at him, causing his feeling of joy to instantly dissipate.
"Jiang Bilan, what are you staring at me for?
Qin Nan snapped in a cold tone.
After seeing Qin Nan's reaction, Jiao Shiyi's face turned cold and was about to turn mad, but his words stuck in his throat after seeing Jiao Zhe's expression, causing him to feel extremely anxious.
"Congratulations on improving your strength." It was as if Jiang Bilan was not bothered by Qin Nan's attitude, who let out a blossoming smile, "I'm utterly impressed seeing that you're able to possess such extraordinary Divine Sense and flesh with a mere half-Martial Emperor Realm cultivation."
Qin Nan snapped without mercy; he was getting tired listening to her words.
Jiao Shiyi's figure shuddered violently after hearing the words. The aura in his body almost burst out due to his anger.
Jiang Bilan showed no sign of turning furious, but the smile on her face grew thicker as she said, "I know you hate me, but judging from your previous behaviors, you would be fighting me already. I'm not trying to be boastful, but with your current strength, there's no way you could harm me."
"What are you implying?"
Qin Nan's eyes turned icy.
Just like what Jiang Bilan said, he was extremely annoyed by her. However, with her cultivation at the peak of the Martial Emperor Realm, and the Trading Alliance behind her, there was no way Qin Nan stood a chance against her unless he chose to use Tang Qingshan's badge.
"We Trading Alliance not only trade treasures, but we are in charge of various casinos too." Jiang Bilan said with a pleasant smile, "I believe you were aware of the bet taking place at the Martial Serendipity Pavilion, right? Since there is no possible way to resolve our conflicts in a short period of time, I believe you are feeling quite troubled now. I have a suggestion though, to settle our conflicts once and for all; what do you think?"
Jiang Bilan continued, "Let's use this trial of Dao-Seeking Fish as a bet. If I were to win the trial, you will tell me the secrets of the Martial Serendipity Pavilion. If I lose, I'll give you benefits. As for what benefits, I'm willing to satisfy any requirement that I'm capable of!"
After hearing the words, the geniuses who were busy taking part in the trial were stunned.
What's going on here?
Jiang Bilan was challenging Qin Nan to a bet?
Both Jiang Bilan and Qin Nan were the limelight of the trial. Now that the two were having a bet against each other, it instantly sparked the curiosity in their hearts.
Sima Kong blurted out screaming at that instant, "Qin Nan, don't fall for it, this b*tch is trying to trick you--"
Before Sima Kong finished his sentence, Qin Nan's eyes flickered as he waved his hand and interrupted, "It's a good suggestion, but I don't think you are able to satisfy my requirement!"
"Feel free to tell me."
Jiang Bilan wore a calm expression.
She knew clearly that it was impossible to obtain the secrets of the Martial Serendipity Pavilion with violence. After all, Qin Nan possessed a formidable background. If that were the case, her only choice was to obtain them through a bet. If Qin Nan ended up going back on his words, she would then have the excuse to deal with him with brute force.
After witnessing the change of Qin Nan's Inner Core, Jiang Bilan had assumed the reason behind the change to be the secrets of the Martial Serendipity Pavilion. As such, despite any requirement that Qin Nan demanded, she would accept it. After all, she was extremely confident in her own talents!
Qin Nan suddenly reached out his finger and pointed at Jiao Zhe, "I want his ancient sword!"
There was no doubt that Qin Nan could easily tell what Jiang Bilan was planning. Therefore, he decided to follow the flow and use Jiang Bilan to obtain the ancient sword, since it was quite difficult for him to ask Jiao Zhe to trade with him, so he might as well utilize the relationship between Jiao Shiyi and Jiang Bilan.
As for the trial of the Dao-Seeking Fish, although it would be dangerous, the fact that he could acquire the ancient sword and suppress Jiang Bilan's smug attitude was a win for him.
Jiang Bilan, Jiao Shiyi, Jiao Zhe, and the others were stunned, as Qin Nan's words took them completely by surprise.
