 Chapter 484 - Life Is like a Song

"Well done!"

Seeing this, Jiang Bilan standing in mid-air above the Ocean of Death burst out complimenting while her eyes flickered in excitement.

The formation had been executed through the full strength of Progenitor Wen Dao, the Wen Dao Elders, Sacred Leader Feiyang, Peak Leader Yang, and the rest of Peak Leaders. There was no way Sacred Leader Qinglong could break out from it despite his immeasurable cultivation.

Once they were trapped inside the formation, she would then have enough time to restore her cultivation.

"I'll need three more hours!"

Being aware of Progenitor Wen Dao's gaze, Jiang Bilan said calmly.

In just three hours, she would be able to restore a three hundredth of her cultivation with the energy of the Ocean of Death, which would allow her to unleash the Flames of Death to refine Sacred Leader Qinglong straight away.

Having this thought, the Death Emperor was quite regretful. If he had known this would happen, he would not have placed the Soul-Consuming Fire within the Seven Great Treasures, as it could prove to be extremely useful at a time like this.

However, without the treasures, he would not have been able to bait the geniuses of the lower district here...

"Qin Nan..."

Jiang Bilan's eyes flickered coldly. For some reason, she could not wait to witness the despair on Qin Nan's face!

"Congratulations, Sect Leader!"

"Congratulations, Sect Leader. The plan has succeeded!"

"......"

Sacred Leader Feiyang and the Peak Leaders standing above the formation congratulated Progenitor Wen Dao continuously.

Progenitor Wen Dao's face reddened slightly as he waved his hand and said, "The plan is yet to be completed, but you have all played an important role in executing it. I will fulfill the promises I made!"

Hearing this, Sacred Leader Feiyang, Peak Leader Yang, and the others wore joyful looks on their faces.

They were assisting Progenitor Wen Dao in the plan for the sake of the benefits he had promised.

"This is it."

Song Yu, who was standing on the shore of the Ocean of Death, shook his head. Lu Jian and Miao Yuxin nodded their heads hearing his mumble.

However, they were having conflicting thoughts. Once the Death Emperor devoured Qin Nan, the Heaven-Shrouding Herb would end up in his hands. Therefore, they would need to negotiate with him.

If that was the case, they would need to pay a great price for it.

Meanwhile, the crowd of rogue cultivators let out sighs in their heart while staring at the cage made of runes.

The presences of the formidable Qinglong Sacred Area and the legendary genius Qin Nan were going to be erased soon in just a day's time.

...Meanwhile, inside the formation...

"Imperial Mortal Scriptures!"

Tang Qingshan uttered a raging roar as the black saber in his hand emitted a terrifying glow as if it was planning to carry out a massacre as it slashed at the runes. Peak Leader Duanmu and his crew executed their strongest moves as well.

BANG!

The huge cage did not budge at all.

"Stop attacking. This formation is impossible to be broken." Sacred Leader Qinglong said in a calm tone while shaking his head.

Tang Qingshan and his crew held their breaths.

With them being trapped inside the formation, it would be a disaster once the Death Emperor restored his cultivation.

Was this really the end?

"Everyone..." At that instant, Qin Nan suddenly spoke. His words immediately captured everyone's attention as he said in a dull tone, "I'm sorry. It's my fault for dragging you all into this mess."

Qin Nan's eyes were filled with self-accusation.

If he had not shattered the Reaper's Platform and awoken the Death Emperor, they would not have ended up like this.

"Don't say that." Tang Qingshan frowned while letting out a sigh, "Without you, they would have acquired the Soul-Consuming Fire, and the outcome will still be the same. Awakening the Death Emperor was a mere incident, as no one expected the rumors to be the truth...In fact, it's us who owe you a great debt."

"That's right, Qin Nan."

Peak Leader Duanmu and his crew said while their eyes were filled with guilt.

It had not been Qin Nan's problem to begin with, but they had ended up dragging him into it.

Everyone knew that Qin Nan would eventually dominate the upper district's Eastern Continent one day with his outstanding talents. However, his Tribulation had been shattered by the Death Emperor, causing him to suffer a tremendous injury, and he would be devoured by the Death Emperor soon.

"Humph, if only I'd grown into a stronger phase, I would definitely tear that bitch Jiang Bilan into pieces."

The Longhu Dominator Beast said while clenching his teeth.

It went without saying that he did not blame Qin Nan. In his opinion, the Death Emperor was most likely picking on Qin Nan due to Jiang Bilan's influence.

Qin Nan glanced at the reactions of the people before him, before a thought came to him.

No one continued to speak after the Longhu Dominator Beast's words, and neither did Qin Nan. He turned his head around and glanced at Sacred Leader Qinglong while transmitting his voice to him. A brief moment later, Sacred Leader Qinglong nodded his head, which allowed Qin Nan to let out a sigh of relief.

No one was aware of the interaction between them.

"According to my speculations, we are pretty close to facing destruction." Qin Nan forced a smile onto his face as he continued, "It's quite rare for us to gather together like this. Since time is running short, let's talk about our plans for the future if we are able to survive today."

"How could we survive..." The Longhu Dominator Beast was the first to roll his eyes, but before he could finish, Princess Miao Miao hurled a kick at him, which caused him to alter his speech, "Err, if I'm able to escape today, I will head to the Eastern Continent and devour some real dragons in order to awaken my bloodline of the Heavenly Dragon and Thunderous Tiger. I will then dominate the Canglan Continent and become the conqueror of the world, causing countless beauties to fall in love with me, and I'll have a harem to myself!"

In the midst of his speech, his face was filled with delight.

The crowd could feel their lips twitching. Even Tang Qingshan's face darkened upon hearing the words.

Sima Kong gave him a disdainful look before he spoke, "How worthless; mine is quite simple. I will thoroughly destroy the Trading Alliance and rob everything from them!"

Sima Kong's eyes were filled with a cold murderous intent.

Qin Nan was slightly startled. It was his first time seeing such a reaction from him. However, after recalling the fact that he had been marked with five black lines, he instantly speculated that there must be some unimaginable conflict between Sima Kong and the Trading Alliance.

"What about Zhao Fang?" Qin Nan glanced in Yu Luosha's direction.

As a matter of fact, there were countless times where Qin Nan had wanted to beat the crap out of his First Senior Brother. However, judging from his experiences at the Grand Competition of the Sixteen Mountains and here at the Ocean of Death, even though Qin Nan could not agree with his passion he had been a great friend to them, who was willing to offer his assistance continuously.

"Hehe, this gorgeous lady will be coming with me..." The Longhu Dominator Beast chuckled.

Zhao Fang rolled his eyes at him before he turned to Qin Nan and said in a dull tone, "I do know that you hate me, but I do hope I'm able to master the true essence of Dragon's Yang[1] just so you will fall in love with me."

"True... true essence of Dragon's Yang? What the heck is that?" The words sounded familiar to the Longhu Dominator Beast, but he could not recall them at that instant. Seeing this, Sima Kong immediately explained to him as he could no longer stand it, causing the Longhu Dominator Beast's expression to darken.

Sh*t, are you for real!

This person was actually a man!

He had been trying to flirt with a man along the journey, and had even touched his hand a couple of times without him noticing!

"HAHA!"

Qin Nan, Sima Kong, and Gong Yang burst out laughing. Even Tang Qingshan and his crew tried their best to hold their urge to laugh.

"Princess?" Qin Nan's gaze landed onto Princess Miao Miao's figure.

"The Princess will of course head to the upper district's Eastern Continent." Princess Miao Miao harrumphed as she spoke, "Aren't the Four Great Factions being too proud of themselves? I will rob everything from them and retrieve something from the Mu Clan of the Eastern Continent. That being said, I'm warning you-you are my servant for the rest of your life. If you don't obey my will, I will never forgive you."

Princess Miao Miao stared at Qin Nan with a threatening look.

"Cough cough..."

Qin Nan let out a hollow laugh before he quickly switched his gaze to Gong Yang, who said in a calm tone, "We won't die here. We will escape here in one piece and head to the Eastern Continent, where we will write our own legends!"

The words astonished the Longhu Dominator Beast and the rest. This guy had some impressive confidence.

But how were they going to escape under such circumstances?

"That's right. As for us, now that we've saved our Junior Sister, we no longer have any wishes. If we can't leave in one piece, we will battle until the very end!"

Tang Qingshan, Peak Leader Duanmu, and the others wore determined looks.

"Is that so..."

Qin Nan glanced at Sacred Leader Qinglong, before he continued to chat with the others.

Either because death was approaching, or because they seldom gathered together, everyone seemed to be relatively talkative today. Even Tang Qingshan, who had been silent most of the time, would burst out laughing occasionally. Meanwhile, Princess Miao Miao shared her alcohol that she had happened to rob from somewhere with everyone. Her face reddened after taking a few sips.

...Time gradually passed. Four hours were gone in the blink of an eye...

The crowd of cultivators could only see the water of the Ocean of Death turning completely clear, without any sign of deathly aura remaining.

At that instant, the Ocean of Death had turned into an ordinary ocean!

Jiang Bilan, who was floating in mid-air, suddenly opened her eyes as a terrifying aura burst out from her body.

"HAHAHA, Qin Nan, your end has arrived!"

Following the laugh, Jiang Bilan's figure arrived above the cage while she glanced down as if she were looking at a group of livestock awaiting their turn to be slaughtered.

At that instant, the atmosphere of the area intensified tremendously!
