Qin Nan was startled.
Xiang Zun did not intend to betray his tribe in the past, but the Shidao Tribe believed the things he did make him a traitor.
Betrayal was a taboo in every ancient tribe. It was more serious than leaking their Arts of Dao Seeking to an outsider!
Why did their attitude change all of a sudden?
Was it because he was Zhou Xiao's reincarnation?
Qin Nan recalled Cao Ling, Zheng Wuyuan, and Han Qiuying's attitude. He had a feeling that the awakening of his past life had put him in some complicated situations.
Xiang Han chuckled, "Qin Nan, I bet other factions have contacted you and hinted they are interested in joining hands with you, right? If we guessed it right, the Mumen Sect is one of them!"
Qin Nan did not keep it a secret. He nodded and said, "Cultivator, can you please explain what's going on?"
"Hey, stop referring to me so courteously. It's annoying the hell out of me. Just call me my name."
Xiang Han waved his hand and said, "Actually, it's not that complicated. It's because of the Heaven Highness!"
Qin Nan frowned, "Heaven Highness? How is he related?"
Xiang Han said after a slight ponder, "Qin Nan, you must know that there's only one Heaven Highness left in this world, and he doesn't have long to live! However, do you have any clue who he is?"
Qin Nan shook his head. He was clueless about the Heaven Highness.
"We don't know much about the Heaven Highness either, but we are sure of one thing. He isn't from our times but he's been around since the era of the four Supreme Highnesses."
Qin Nan was startled.
The era of the four Supreme Highnesses was a long time ago.
Even though Qin Nan was not familiar with the Heaven Highness Realm, he was pretty sure that even a Heaven Highness could not live for that long!
"Think about it, what does it imply? It means there hasn't been a Heaven Highness since that battle!"
Qin Nan immediately came to a realization. He said, "You're saying that it's impossible to become a Heaven Highness in our times?"
Xiang Han nodded, "Exactly, the battle in the past has greatly influenced the Nine Heavens Immortal Realm, As a result, there is no longer a place where a cultivator can ascend to the Heaven Highness Realm in the Nine Heavens Immortal Realm, or should I say, in the whole Primary Upper Realm."
"The people could visit the seventy-two Sacred Areas of the Heavens and Earth to achieve the Nine Heavens Supreme Realm. They would then visit the Dao Seeking Land to become Masters of Dao and the Battlefield of Aeon to achieve the Ruler Realm, but what about the Heaven Highness Realm? Where should we go?"
Qin Nan was startled.
It was true that he had never heard of a place to achieve the Heaven Highness Realm so far.
"Which means, the reason why your tribe, Mumen Sect, and other factions want to join hands with me is because they believe my past life Zhou Xiao might know a place like that?"
Qin Nan soon calmed his thoughts.
"Something like that. Currently, the seven Heaven Highness Clans, Mumen Sect, Shidao Tribe, Tribe of Immortal Spirits, the ancient tribes, the thirteen Supreme Daoism factions, and other experts in the Ruler Realm are looking for a way to achieve the Heaven Highness Realm."
"Since the battle in the past, the factions have derived their own solution. They kept trying different ways to make it possible."
"The solution that our tribe found. Ugh, I don't really know the details, but I think it's similar to the solution which the Mumen Sect and a few other factions have derived, and it has something to do with your past life," Xiang Han said.
Qin Nan squinted.
What Xiang Han told him mattered a lot. He never thought there was such a great hidden conspiracy taking place in the Nine Heavens Immortal Realm.
Every faction and Rulers of Dao were stubbornly finding a way to achieve the Heaven Highness Realm.
However, from the way it looked, it might be a good thing for Qin Nan.
It did not matter what the Shidao Tribe, Mumen Sect, Zheng Clan, and Han Clan were planning or how they were trying to use him. It still meant these four formidable factions were not his enemy for now, especially the Shidao Tribe.
They were enemies of life and death previously.
That being said, Qin Nan was not naive enough to believe the four factions would always be on friendly terms with him.
They were only after their personal gains. As long as he was useful for them, they could overlook the conflict between them.
If Qin Nan was no longer useful for them, they would fall out with him without any hesitation.
"Cultivator Qin Nan."
The middle-aged man finally spoke, "We know there are a lot of unpleasantries between you and the Shidao Tribe, but not everyone in the tribe holds a grudge against you."
"What Senior Xiang Zun did leave a thorn in our heart, but it's all in the past. Many seniors in our tribe could also understand his reasonings."
The seniors whom a peak Nine Heavens Supreme referred to were most likely the experts in the Master Realm or the Ruler Realm of the Shidao Tribe.
"That being said, since we were being unreasonable in the first place, if Cultivator Qin Nan is willing to join hands with us, we will make up for it."
The middle-aged man said after a brief pause, "We hope Cultivator Qin Nan can visit the Heaven-Reaching Dao Tree when you have the time. Saint Xiang Qi will tell you the details."
Qin Nan did not give his answer. He said with a smile, "Sure, I'll meet Saint Xiang Qi when I visit the Heaven-Reaching Dao Tree."
The middle-aged man let out a relieved sigh.
At least Qin Nan was not against the idea.
"Qin Nan, we have told you everything we came here for. (Sigh), we should have a friendly duel the next time we meet..."
Xiang Han and the middle-aged man pinched a talisman. A great force encapsulated them and teleported them away.
The darkness surrounding them dissipated too.
"Is it done?" the three peak Nine Heavens Supremes nearby collected their thoughts.
However, they soon wore a confused look.
Where are Xiang Han and the middle-aged man?
Where did they go?
Meanwhile, two formidable auras surged in all directions.
The Supreme Force in Princess Miao Miao and Jiang Bilan's body skyrocketed.
They had successfully broken through to the Greater Success Stage of the Nine Heavens Supreme Realm.
