The cultivators were absolutely dumbfounded.
"How...how is this possible!? I'm the successor of the Second Immortal, I've acquired the nine fleshes too, how did I lose?" Feng Wuheng roared as the chaotic glow dissipated.
His hair was disheveled. He was left with countless injuries from which blood was pouring out. Only a third of his previous aura was left. He was in a miserable state.
On the other hand, Jiang Ni stuck his sword into the ground with a pale face.
Even though his white robe was perfectly clean without a single drop of blood, if anyone was taking a closer look at his sword, it already had cracks on it.
He was a sword cultivator, but he had lost his sword.
"A win is a win, a loss is a loss, there's no why and no if!" Qin Nan looked at them. His Dao-Melting Immortal Flames that had weakened previously erupted once again with a strong force.
The aura of the Nine Heavens Supreme Realm burst out of his body and surged across the place.
"Jiang Ni, Feng Wuheng, either way, I'm grateful toward you. You've given me a chance to fight with all my strength. I'm more than happy to have a rematch with you two!"
The twelve Arts of Dao Seeking in Qin Nan's body calmed down. The Heaven-Shattering Saber transformed into his hand. He also withdrew the Tree of Dao.
At that instant, cries of dragons echoed across the place.
It felt like multiple passages had been opened, from which golden dragons with mystical auras appeared and entered Qin Nan's body.
These were the Supreme Dragons. They would appear whenever someone reached the top of a Supreme Mountain and entered the cultivator's body to trigger the transformation which would help them surpass the immortal realm.
The Supreme Dragons were golden without any exception, yet the Supreme Dragons which Qin Nan summoned had purple-golden eyes. They seemed nobler.
"A win is a win, and a loss is a loss! Hehehe, you're right, you're absolutely right!"
Feng Wuheng's eyes flickered with strong murderous intent, "I might have lost to you this time, but once I achieve the Nine Heavens Supreme Realm, I will be able to claim all of Zhuang Chen's belongings. I will kill you even if I can't merge the nine fleshes into one!"
He quickly rose to his feet and flew to his Supreme Mountain. He climbed it rapidly while performing hand seals to shatter the calamities. He eventually reached the top.
The Supreme Dragons appeared once again.
Even though Feng Wuheng was extremely discontented with the outcome of the battle, he was able to recover quickly due to his unyielding character.
Either way, he must focus on achieving the Nine Heavens Supreme Realm first.
After all, more people would want him dead instead!
"Did...did I lose..."
Unlike Feng Wuheng, the glow in Jiang Ni's eyes dimmed as his aura fell continuously.
There was only one emperor in the world!
He had lost.
Even though he had lost many times in the past, it was different this time. He had long accumulated his will and focus.
"Jiang Ni! Did you forget? Did you forget what you saw?" an ancient voice echoed in his mind.
"Don't you want to compete with the others?"
"Are you going to give up because of one defeat?"
"Didn't you have enough regrets in your past life?"
The words struck his soul like claps of thunder.
The words had originated from the seal left by his past life on his soul when he merged with his past life's body. It would only appear when he was in grave danger.
Jiang Ni shuddered. Countless scenes crossed his mind.
His expression shifted continuously. There were mixed feelings, sighs, and remorse.
Even though only half a breath or even shorter had passed, but it felt like a few seasons to him.
Jiang Ni's eyes regained focus. He said with a hoarse voice, "Thank you, my past life!"
The aura in his body rose once again. He turned into a sword glow heading straight toward the top of the Supreme Mountain.
Even though he was still a little lost, and his mind was confused, he had arrived at a conclusion. He had to achieve the Nine Heavens Supreme Realm. If not, he would regret it for the rest of his life.
"The three of them are starting to achieve the Nine Heavens Supreme Realm!"
The cultivators fixed their eyes on the mountains.
"Not bad, he's just as impressive!"
Princess Miao Miao and Jiang Bilan's eyes were fixed on the person whom they cared the most about.
Meanwhile, Su Nu, the Exceptional Geniuses, and the Peerless Rulers wore displeased look upon collecting their thoughts.
Nothing could stop Qin Nan from achieving the Nine Heavens Supreme Realm now. The people of their factions could no longer stop him even if they arrived now. They could only kill Qin Nan after he achieved the Nine Heavens Supreme Realm.
Qin Nan, Jiang Ni, and Feng Wuheng's auras rose rapidly. Their brilliance soon exceeded the crowd's as the auras of the Nine Heavens Supreme Realm surged like strong tides.
Their bodies underwent tremendous changes too.
Qin Nan's Dao-Melting Immortal Flames, Immortal Eyes of the Divine God of Battle, and the Divine Battle Spirit in his body had unleashed all their power as if the final seal had been removed.
The Tree of Dao transformed too. Its roots, trunk, and branches were added with an extra color. They now had ten colors.
The Tree of Dao's aura also reached an unbelievable stage.
After all, Peerless Rulers were still considered Heaven Immortals, but the Nine Heavens Supremes were beyond immortals. They were innately different.
As more changes occurred, the Ownerless Heaven Pattern suddenly emitted a strong glow. A stream consisting of purple fragments entered Qin Nan's mind and combined with the fragmented crystal in his Divine Sense.
"Are the memories of my past life finally going to be awakened?"
Qin Nan gathered his focus.
Meanwhile, the rifts deep in the sky collapsed continuously. Strong glows burst out from the gaps with formidable auras.
The surroundings suddenly darkened.
The Peerless Rulers and Exceptional Geniuses no longer stood out before the approaching formation.
The Nine Heavens Supremes of various factions had arrived!
