PBS - Chapter 2144 - Moxie's Attitude
Qin Nan told Yi Shi and Cheng Mu he had to go. He followed the red skeleton to the seventh floor.
There were rooms made of immortal wood on the seventh floor, each with a variety of ancient formations to prevent people from seeing what was inside with eye techniques and their Divine Sense.
Moxie and Demon Emperor Wutian dressed in black robes were waiting in front of a room.
The red skeleton sensibly left. Moxie and Demon Emperor Wutian straightened their faces and brought their fists together, "Greetings, my master!"
They were about to drop to their knees when Qin Nan stopped them. He said with a smile, "That won't be necessary."
Moxie did not force it. He opened the door and invited Qin Nan into the room with a gesture. He asked, "My master, you are now a peak Nine Heavens Supreme. Have you noticed any changes?"
Qin Nan understood what he was asking. He did not keep it a secret. He said, "I've seen fragments of my past life's memory in my Divine Sense. It might be just as you've mentioned before. I will reclaim Huangfu Jue's memory when I achieved the Master Realm."
The eyes of Moxie and Demon Emperor Wutian flickered with joy. They were relieved too.
Even though it would take Qin Nan some time to achieve the Master Realm, it was a lot quicker than having to achieve the Ruler Realm.
"My master, you must have guessed that the Demon Palace is a faction we have established. The Masters of Dao and some mysterious existences, and the ruler of this City of Darkness are our men."
Moxie said after a brief pause, "However, you have yet to fully awaken your memory, so I can't bring you to him."
Qin Nan waved his hand and said, "It's fine. I just came to ask about Empress Feiyue. The other factions have received some news. You should have heard it too."
Moxie and Demon Emperor Wutian exchanged glances with one another. The former hesitated slightly before he said, "From what we know, there are around eight formidable factions who are planning to attack Empress Feiyue, including two out of the seven Heaven Highness Clans."
"Lately, the Supreme Haotian Badge has been reacting a lot. We are guessing that Empress Feiyue will forcibly activate it in five to ten days to trigger the Battle of the Masters. We aren't sure of the exact location since it might also take place in any of the South Battlefield, North Battlefield, or the Center Battlefield."
Qin Nan frowned.
Only five to ten days left?
"My master, you might not like this, but I think you shouldn't involve yourself in it," Moxie said.
"My master, to be honest with you, our faction is getting quite strong, but since you haven't reclaimed your memory, you won't be able to practice the Art of the Immortal Demon to recover your strength. If you try to summon our men here, I'm afraid..." Demon Emperor Wutian said.
However, Qin Nan interrupted before he could finish, "Don't worry, I'm not planning to use your power."
Moxie and Demon Emperor Wutian were startled.
They had already come up with different ways to convince Qin Nan when they noticed he was at the auction.
Mo Xie was the first to react. He let out a sigh and said, "My master, if that's the case, how are you going to help Empress Feiyue with your current strength? My master, I know Empress Feiyue has helped you a lot, so you want to repay her kindness, but..."
Moxie stopped talking. It was clear what he was trying to say.
Empress Feiyue was already at wits' end. It was meaningless to waste their time on helping her.
"Either way, I will stand on her side," Qin Nan said. "I know I can't use your men, but can you promise me that if Empress Feiyue only needs one last step to achieve the Ruler of Dao, you will help her once."
Moxie said without any hesitation, "If it really came down to that, we will definitely lend a hand. She's someone important to you. We won't hesitate to offer her our assistance."
He only agreed so decisively because he was trying to fawn upon Qin Nan. Second, he believed it would never come down to it.
Empress Feiyue was being too impatient. She was going to fail miserably.
"Very well!" Qin Nan was relieved.
Previously, when he met Demon Emperor Wutian and Moxie, he could already tell their attitude that they would not acknowledge him as their master and take orders from him because he was still not Huangfu Jue.
It was the same attitude they had.
Therefore, Qin Nan never planned to use their men. He was satisfied with the current situation.
Qin Nan returned to the hall after he was done talking to them.
"Cultivator Qin Nan, the two of us have decided to serve you just like Wuzhu after giving it a thought," Yi Shi said with a smile.
"Yeah, please don't push us aside!" Cheng Mu said.
"I'm glad to have you. It's for the best," Qin Nan brought his fists together.
Qin Nan proceeded to discuss with the Masters of Dao and mysterious existences.
In the end, Qin Nan recruited two Masters of Dao in the Intermediate Stage, and three mysterious existences in the peak Master Realm for a month. He only had a few Will-less Soul Jades left.
That being said, Qin Nan did not think these people were going to help Empress Feiyue.
After all, they were only willing to lend a hand when their lives were not in danger. It was unlikely they would risk their lives for him.
Qin Nan's plan was very simple. Once the copper mirror activated the Supreme Haotian Badge, a lot of Masters of Dao would come to the Battlefield of Aeon.
He must recruit a group of people to escort him.
"Let's wait for now."
Qin Nan let out a sigh in his room in the Demon Palace and closed his eyes.
A deadly undercurrent was gathering in the Battlefield of Aeon.
Time gradually passed.
The fifth day...
The sixth day...
The seventh day...
On the eighth day, loud chimes of a bell sounded out of nowhere and echoed in every corner in the Battlefield of Aeon.
It also sounded in the heart of every Master of Dao in the Primary Upper Realm regardless of where they were.
The atmosphere began to intensify.
Empress Feiyue was finally on the move!
