There was only a single aura approaching them!
Lin Chenli burst out laughing after a brief pause, "Qin Nan, is this the backup you mentioned? It's only a peak Nine Heavens Supreme. It won't make any difference even if he's as strong as Li Yangfan who's ranked first on the Supreme Leaderboard!"
Zhang Yue'er and the others burst out laughing too.
The worry they initially had was gone.
Qin Nan and Xu Ruchen took a quick glance and noticed the person who was approaching was Elder Long.
Qin Nan was amused. He never thought Elder Long was so lively when he was influenced by the curse the most.
"Qin Nan, are you really smiling under the circumstances? Stop trying to be calm to trick us..."
Lin Chenli's aura rose and surged across the place. He was preparing to make his move on Qin Nan and Xu Ruchen.
Before he could finish, another powerful aura appeared nearby. It too was approaching them at a shocking pace.
Zhang Yue'er and the others were startled after picking it up.
Qin Nan had two helpers?
Before they could react, they picked up three other auras.
"Five...five peak Nine Heavens Supremes?"
Lin Chenli shuddered. His aura weakened slightly.
If Qin Nan and Xu Ruchen received the help of five peak Nine Heavens Supremes. Their group would not be able to defeat them!
For some reason, he had a bad feeling about it.
It seemed like the Heavens were taking special care of him. The thing he feared the most immediately occurred as soon as the thought crossed his mind.
Powerful auras continued to appear like bamboo shoots after a rain or flames in the dark around them.
"Who dares to touch Cultivator Qin Nan!?"
Loud roars came from the distance.
Strong murderous intents surged at them like tides which further combined into an ocean about to devour Lin Chenli, Zhang Yue'er and the others.
Lin Chenli, Zhang Yue'er, and the rest of the cultivators were dumbfounded.
Why were there so many peak Nine Heavens Supremes?
How did Qin Nan possibly convince so many cultivators to side with him?
Was it some kind of illusion?
Elder Long soon arrived.
The peak Nine Heavens Supremes and Nine Heavens Supremes in the Greater Success Stage gradually arrived too.
Lin Chenli and Zhang Yue'er realized it was not an illusion when they saw the cold looks directed at them. They shuddered in fear when they saw the skeletons.
These people were the demons of the Westernmost Land!
Qin Nan had joined hands with the demons!
Everything fell silent at that instant. It was so quiet that everyone could hear the heavy breathings of Lin Chenli, Zhang Yue'er, and their crew.
Qin Nan soon broke the silence. He looked at Lin Chenli's pale face and said, "What about now? Do you think I was trying to scare you with a little trick?"
Lin Chenli was the candidate for the future Patriarch of the Qimu Tribe. He did not lose his ground even when the enemy's formation was terrifying. He soon reacted and forced smile, "No...not at all...I...I'm sorry for what I said. Brother Qin Nan, please forgive me, if you need anything from me, feel free to..."
Lin Chenli completely lost his temper. He was already regretting his actions.
Anyone would share the same reaction if they were facing hundreds of peak Nine Heavens Supremes and Nine Heavens Supremes in the Greater Success Stage.
Qin Nan did not bother wasting his time on him. He waved his hand, "Brothers, take them out!"
Elder Long was the first to let out a roar.
Hundreds of Dao Arts poured down at Lin Chenli and his crew like a great storm.
Lin Chenli and his men were startled. They tried to defend themselves out of instinct.
However, it was just as Lin Chenli had mentioned before, that two fists would never stand a chance against four hands, let alone such a huge difference between their numbers.
Following a series of explosions, the cultivators gradually fell to the ground.
Lin Chenli yelled, "Qin Nan, I'm the future Young Master of the Qimu Tribe, if you dare kill me today, the Qimu Tribe will never forgive you..."
The skeletons who were attacking him hesitated a little, but a tremendous sword glow landed on him following it.
"Silence," Xu Ruchen said.
"Fellow cultivators, you have my thanks," Qin Nan brought his fists together after putting Lin Cheli and the others' corpses in the Ownerless Heaven Pattern.
"It's nothing, Cultivator Qin Nan, you are being too courteous with us!"
"HAHAHA, Brother Qin Nan, you don't have to thank us. I will serve you for fifteen years. If anyone dares to harm you, they will have to step over my body first!"
The others burst out laughing.
Qin Nan was pleased.
He had been fighting alone for a long time. He rarely joined hands with others.
However, it did not feel bad to have a bunch of people under his command.
"It's definitely something I didn't expect to find in the Westernmost Land," Qin Nan murmured.
He chatted with his men for a while before leaving with Xu Ruchen.
They did not encounter any trouble at the other two places. They successfully claimed the fortunate encounters. The first one was a mystical pagoda that could speed up the rate of cultivation of Nine Heavens Supremes. The second one was an ancient tree with immortal fruits.
Qin Nan was not interested in either of them. He helped to lift the remaining curse for the rest of the cultivators before refining the three dragon-shaped orbs.
The three dragon-shaped orbs ended up giving him another surprise.
The blood orb in his body grew stronger after he absorbed the blood essence in the orbs. It eventually evolved into an illusionary symbol around the size of his palm.
He also collected the power of lineage of the seven Heaven Highness Clans. However, their auras were extremely weak on the symbol. He could only notice them when he was observing the symbol closely.
It was worse for the lineage of other ancient tribes.
Qin Nan believed the power of the lineages would still be a lot weaker than Zhou Di and Huangfu Jue's auras no matter how much he had absorbed.
"That being said, I still achieved something on the path I've taken. I should be stronger now," Qin Nan murmured. He opened his eyes and stared into the distance.
"Ruchen, it's time for us to go to the inner sector."
