The hearts of the cultivators skipped a beat.
The land began to shake vigorously as strong gusts of wind surged in all directions. Lightning strikes descended fiercely, dying everything purple-white.
The spear Chigu pulled itself out of the ground and headed straight at Qin Nan.
It was incredibly huge, more than a hundred thousand zhang long, but it shrunk rapidly every inch it was closer to Qin Nan. It was only two zhang long when it arrived before him.
Qin Nan was not surprised at all. He already knew he could summon the spear Chigu to him when he tried to communicate with it previously.
Qin Nan stared at the icy black spear for a few moments. He reached his hand out and grabbed it.
The Divine Battle Spirit and the magnificent figure of the Lord of All Worlds emerged from his back on their own. Their ancient auras and overwhelming battle intents were ten times stronger than before.
Meng Jiugong's eyes widened.
He was the closest to Qin Nan, thus he clearly sensed an imperious aura coming out of Qin Nan as if he had undergone some ancient transformation!
Qin Nan swung the spear around. The shocking rare phenomena dissipated into thin air. He looked at Lu Qingyin and said, "Do you still want to pick on me now?"
Lu Qingyin's expression sank with her heart.
In addition to her, Xiang Tianqi, Nie Wufeng, the five rebels, and the rest of the Exceptional Geniuses and Peerless Rulers had dark expressions on their faces too.
That being said, they too were not too surprised by the outcome, as they had long predicted it.
Lu Qingyin's expression soon recovered. She said calmly, "Qin Nan, there's no point to intimidate us with it. It is no longer as powerful as it used to be."
"Besides, if I'm not mistaken, the unusual phenomenon deep inside the Death Zone and the sudden appearance of Chigu must be something that the fifth successor had prepared in advance in the past. He wants you to use the remaining power of the spear to break something, right?"
The eyes of many cultivators glittered.
Qin Nan said with a smile, "I have the same thought too. Besides, its power is indeed nowhere close to what it used to be. I can only use it once, but I can guarantee you that I can still destroy all of you with it!"
Qin Nan swung his arm and pointed the spear at Lu Qingyin.
Lu Qingyin and the cultivators of the Tribe of Immortal Spirits subconsciously backed a few steps away.
The aura from the spear at that instant was just too terrifying. It felt like a peak Nine Heavens Supreme was glaring at them murderously.
Qin Nan did not look at Lu Qingyin any longer. He brought Meng Jiugong with him as he flew forward.
Xiang Tianqi, Nie Wufeng, and the rest of the Exceptional Geniuses and Peerless Rulers yelled after collecting their thoughts. Lu Qingyin bit her lips softly to calm herself down before following them.
It was spectacular when the huge crowd of cultivators all moved at the same time.
However, no one dared to attack Qin Nan, as none of them dared to take the risk after witnessing the aura of the spear.
That being said, the Ancient Taboo and Heaven-Repelling Ancient Sect did have their expendable disciples. They were not afraid of the spear. There was just no point to fight Qin Nan now.
If everything was just as Lu Qingyin had speculated, it was better to wait until Qin Nan had used the spear.
"Qin Nan, you were so cool just then!"
Meng Jiugong's face blushed with excitement. He transmitted his voice, "You actually intimidated all of them!"
Qin Nan rolled his eyes. He said with a displeased voice, "It's only going to keep them at bay for the time being. It won't be the same once I used the remaining power of the spear. You should stay as far away from me as possible so you won't get caught in the fight."
Meng Jiugong chuckled, "I can take care of myself. Don't worry."
Qin Nan soon saw the bottomless abyss which even the Immortal Eyes of the Divine God of Battle had failed to peek into. He only saw the skeletal head of a huge beast floating in the darkness.
There was a path in the mouth of the beast that led to an unknown place.
Different thoughts crossed the minds of the cultivators. Many of them placed their attention on Qin Nan.
Qin Nan glanced at the Ownerless Heaven Pattern that was emitting a faint glow. He flew into the mouth of the beast without any hesitation.
"There's no need to rush it, let's see what's going to happen after he went inside!"
Many cultivators shared the same thought.
When Qin Nan landed on the beast's head, ripples began to appear from the pitch-black abyss.
Qin Nan tensed and looked into the abyss.
Whoosh whoosh whoosh!
Brilliant immortal rays came out of it and spread to the surroundings. They consisted of huge palaces, fragments of weapons, and unusual flowers and plants.
"That's the Soul Grass!"
"An Immortal-Blessing grade Three-Lined Mystical Fruit?"
The cultivators' eyes burned passionately. They immediately turned into rays of light flying straight at the palaces and unusual plants.
They clearly knew that the place where Qin Nan was heading to would have outstanding successions and fortunate encounters, but there were too many Exceptional Geniuses and peak Peerless Rulers.
Even if they were to try their luck, now was still not the time for them to take the risk.
"Let's head over!"
Xiang Tianqi, Nie Wufeng, Lu Qingyin, the Exceptional Geniuses, and the Peerless Rulers were relived. They flew toward the skeletal head.
Qin Nan and Meng Jiugong withdrew their gazes. They followed the path of bones.
A few moments later, the scenery changed dramatically. Rare phenomena including ten suns floating in the sky, the land turning into a vast sea, a city floating in the sky, and many more kept showing up, giving Meng Jiugong a huge fright.
They found a round glow around a thousand zhang tall and five hundred zhang wide at the end of the path. The energy at its middle was twisting constantly, as if it was gathering the force of the Heavens and Earth.
Qin Nan hesitated briefly before stepping into it.
He and Meng Jiugong entered a white space with no visible ends. They could only see an ancient gate standing in front of them.
The gate was golden and covered in runes. It was not massive, yet it felt like its aura was capable of suppressing the Heavens and Earth. Anyone would subconsciously feel respectful toward it.
The frames on both sides, in particular, were huge words written in blood. Each word had an overwhelming aura.
Here Stood the Gate Protecting the Heavens, The Immortal Realm would be in ruins once it collapsed!
