Supreme Zhi Guang said with a grin, "As expected of Cultivator Qin Nan, you've managed to catch up to me under the circumstances. As I thought, you will never disappoint me!"
The vessel entered the Freezing Tide. It was soon covered in thick ice. The temperature on the vessel dropped rapidly.
However, the mystical vessel was not devoured by the Freezing Tide.
Qin Nan raised his brows. He said, "You already knew I'll board the vessel? Or did you purposely wait until I'm on board?"
Supreme Zhi Guang nodded slightly as he spilled the beans, "I've already learned that the Freezing Tide will occur with a mysterious artifact, thus I have long prepared myself for it. I have planned to claim the beast core when the time comes and use the Freezing Tide to shake the others off."
"However, I didn't expect you would show up, so I purposely slowed down a little so you can board the vessel too."
Qin Nan's eyes flickered curiously, "But why did you wait for me?"
Supreme Zhi Guang said, "Cultivator Qin Nan, isn't the answer obvious? Even though your past life Zhou Xiao was just a piece of trash, but he was still the son of a Supreme Highness!"
"Even though the Sixth Immortal has turned against you and the First Immortal utterly despised you, but I believe the Supreme Highness would have left something for his son."
"For example, the Flesh of Eternity, an Immortal Realm artifact."
Supreme Zhi Guang figure dissipated into light dots. They flew to the hull of the vessel before returning to a human figure to escape from the Heaven-Shattering Saber's reach.
His eyes were fixed on Qin Nan.
"It's all I want to know. I have no intention to harm you, as long as you are willing to cooperate."
Following it, an ancient sword appeared in his hand like a blossoming fire lily with a shocking Dao intent.
It was a half-Dao Seeking Weapon!
Qin Nan squinted, "If I'm not mistaken, you must have concealed your cultivation, or perhaps you have some other helpers around. Otherwise, why would you dare to set me up when you're only in the Greater Success Stage?"
Supreme Zhi Guang's eyes flickered with a hint of compliment. He said, "What a surprise, aren't you a sharp one?"
Following it, his aura skyrocketed before spreading in all directions. His presence was outstanding even when they were in the Freezing Tide.
His real cultivation was the peak Nine Heavens Supreme Realm!
He had used an ancient art to conceal his cultivation when he saw the Dark Flyer attempting to break through to the Master Realm. He successfully convinced the rest of the Nine Heavens Supremes in the Greater Success Stage to join hands against the two peak Nine Heavens Supremes.
Qin Nan said as he unleashed his battle intent, "I guess there's no need to waste our time any longer!"
A shocking aura burst out of his body together with the Dao intent of the twelve Arts of Dao Seeking. They combined into a formidable saber glow.
Supreme Zhi Guang let out a sigh and said, "Cultivator Qin Nan, I'm a little disappointed. You should have expended a significant amount of your energy in the fight against the peak Nine Heavens Supreme. How could you possibly stand a chance against me now?"
"Fine, I shall eliminate you today."
Supreme Zhi Guang suddenly moved. Boundless sword intents surged forward like a sea of flames. Even the ice covering the vessel was melted.
"Rolling Dragon Sword Art!"
Supreme Zhi Guang unleashed thousands of sword intents, each was like a rising dragon.
Qin Nan immediately unleashed the Dao-Melting Immortal Flames. They engulfed the Heaven-Shattering Saber as it ignored the burning sword intents and clashed with the sword.
BANG BANG BANG!
A series of deafening explosions took place.
The two figures crashed into one another at shocking speed like lightning. They were executing a series of Dao Arts.
From afar, it looked like an immortal sword and an immortal saber were clashing with one another.
The vessel shook vigorously. Cracks began to appear on it.
Despite its extraordinariness, it was struggling to resist the powerful impacts. It was soon going to collapse.
"Red Lotus Burning the Sky!"
Supreme Zhi Guang spat out a drop of fresh blood and stabbed it with his sword.
Dark red flames burst out from the tip of the sword. It devoured Qin Nan like a blossoming lotus.
The strength of a half-Dao Seeking Weapon was absolutely terrifying. A normal Nine Heavens Supreme in the Greater Success Stage would be defeated by the red lotus instantly.
The Dao-Melting Immortal Flames Qin Nan was unleashing surged vigorously. He was unaffected despite the formidable flames of the red lotus.
If Qin Nan was currently in the Greater Success Stage of the Nine Heavens Supreme Realm, not only was he going to be unharmed, the Dao-Melting Immortal Flames could easily suppress the flames too.
Supreme Zhi Guang's eyes glittered. He did not have complete information on Qin Nan. He was unaware of the special flames that Qin Nan possessed.
Supreme Zhi Guang stomped the vessel without any hesitation.
The vessel broke into pieces as it failed to resist the force.
A great chill surged at them. Supreme Zhi Guang quickly swallowed a black pill. He was completely unaffected by the cold.
"Dao Intent Suppressing the Sea, Impenetrable by Thousand Laws!"
Qin Nan's eyes glittered. The supreme force in his body burned rapidly. The Dao intent of twelve Arts of Dao Seeking spread rapidly to resist the chill like an invisible barrier.
However, Qin Nan was under great pressure.
"Cultivator Qin Nan, did I take you by surprise?"
Supreme Zhi Guang smiled. He performed a mystical hand seal and said, "Not only am I unaffected by it, I can control it too!"
He reached his right hand forward. The tide immediately flowed toward him following a huge blast.
"It seems like he has obtained some powerful succession!"
Qin Nan's eyes sharpened as the thought crossed his mind.
"The longer the fight goes on, the more unfavorable the situation is going to be. I must finish it at once!"
"Art of Taiyan!"
Qin Nan quickly performed a hand seal. Several lights appeared from the distance, together with hundreds of Qin Nans that were standing in a certain formation.
"Mm? Isn't that the art from before..."
Supreme Zhi Guang was startled. The surroundings began to change.
