Qin Nan frowned.
A Nine Heavens Supreme in the early stage?
Qin Nan expressed his gratitude to Supreme Chang Xiao first. He performed the mystical hand seal as mentioned. Even though it sounded a little strange, but he had nothing else to do for now. He decided to meet the person.
An hour later, Supreme Huanglei and two Nine Heavens Supremes of the Sky Taihuang Sect brought a middle-aged man to Qin Nan.
The man was overjoyed when he saw Qin Nan.
He had guessed it right!
When he came to the Dao Seeking Land, he learned Qin Nan had shown up in the Land of the Duo, but the entrance was already closed by the time he arrived.
Everyone in the Nine Heavens Immortal Realm also knew about Qin Nan's situation. If he was still alive, he would not stay in Baixian City.
He decided to try his luck that the Sky Taihuang Sect was still on friendly terms with Qin Nan behind the scenes.
He would only have a chance to meet Qin Nan with the Sky Taihuang Sect's help to fulfill his master's order.
"Qin Nan, I have brought him to you. We will be leaving first," Supreme Huanglei said. He brought his fists together and flew into the clouds.
Qin Nan asked the middle-aged man, "May I know your name?"
The middle-aged man calmed his thoughts and said, "I'm Zhang Xu. My master Progenitor Baixuan has asked me to deliver this letter to you in person."
He took out a scroll.
Qin Nan frowned. Who was he? Did he meet someone with that name before?
Qin Nan inspected the scroll and immediately noticed a seal on it. It had the aura of a Master Realm expert.
"Cultivator Zhang, please give me some time. I'll break the seal on it," Qin Nan said as he dived into the scroll with his Divine Sense.
It took Qin Nan a thousand breaths to crack the seal even with his current cultivation. The will of the Master of Dao burst out of the scroll and entered Qin Nan's Divine Sense.
An illusionary old man appeared.
"May I ask the reason why Senior Baixuan has put in so much effort just to find me?" Qin Nan asked.
"Qin Nan, you must have a lot of questions when you see me, but I don't have much energy left. I couldn't afford to leave my will to have a conversation with you."
The illusionary figure kept going without waiting for Qin Nan's response, "What I'm about to tell you is related to Feiyue."
Qin Nan straightened his face at the mention of the name.
"I've been dead for a long time. I have left my succession with a wisp of my will in it. I met Feiyue, but she didn't accept me as her master. However, I gave her most of my successions after seeing her outstanding talents."
"I witnessed her completing the Art of Three Lifetimes, which further evolved into the Art of Ten Lifetimes. She was one of a kind. She became a Master of Dao and remained undefeated."
"I was proud of her. I preserved my remaining strength and prepared to fall into deep slumber so I can witness the miracles she would achieve in the Nine Heavens Immortal Realm. I woke up when you became a Nine Heavens Supreme and your identity as Zhou Xiao's reincarnation was exposed."
Qin Nan began to have a bad feeling.
"I warned her not to have any ties with you, but she ignored my warning and went to the First Sacred Area alone."
"She knew you were in danger, so she helped you to overcome it even if it meant breaking the taboo of the Art of Ten Lifetimes!"
"You might be unaware, but she had expended most of her lifespan when using the Art of Ten Lifetimes. Her lifespan would continue to decrease every day. According to my calculations, she could only live for a year at most!"
"By the time you see this letter, she has less than a year left."
Qin Nan's expression shifted. His hands began to tremble.
He had no idea Feiyue had paid such a huge price when she helped him previously!
"The only way for her to live is to achieve the Ruler Realm."
"Despite her talents, a year is too short for her. No one has ever done it in the most brilliant era, let alone the current era."
"However, she has no other choice. She is making the arrangements to achieve the Ruler Realm in the Battlefield of Aeon. However, she is rushing everything. Many factions have already noticed what she's up to. They have joined hands to kill her in the Battlefield of Aeon."
"I believe she has the potential to become a Heaven Highness in the future! I wouldn't want to see her fail so soon. I wanted to help her, but there's nothing I can do. You are the reincarnation of a Heaven Highness' son. Your father might have left you some law-defying methods."
"If possible, I ask you to lend her a hand," Progenitor Baixuan said.
He bowed at Qin Nan after completing the sentence before his figure slowly vanished into thin air.
Qin Nan's mind went blank.
It felt like an enormous hand was grabbing his heart.
Progenitor Baixuan had made it very clear. Qin Nan could imagine a glamorous woman with an expressionless face and a pair of cold eyes moving forward even when she knew a deep abyss was awaiting her ahead.
There was no retreat. She could only fight until her death.
Some time later, Zhang Xu saw Qin Nan's face getting paler. He hesitated for a moment before asking, "Cultivator Qin Nan? Is everything alright?"
Qin Nan forced a smile as he collected his thoughts, "I'm fine."
He thought of something and took out the remaining valuables and corpses of Nine Heavens Supremes from his storage bag. He said, "Cultivator Zhang, thank you for delivering the letter to me. I don't have much left. Please take these."
Zhang Xu's heart skipped a beat when he saw the valuables. He blurted out, "Cultivator Qin Nan, you're being too courteous. It's just something I should do..."
Qin Nan waved his hand and said, "Just take them, Cultivator Zhang. If you are in any trouble, just contact me through this badge. I'll lend you a hand if I can make it in time."
Zhang Xu was overjoyed. He gladly took everything.
He could tell Qin Nan was behaving strangely, so he soon left without overstaying.
