Xiang Nan was walking in Black Jiang City. At this moment, all the mercenary groups in the city had issued an order that from today onwards, they would not take on any more missions within three days.
They didn't want to get involved in this mess anymore. Previously, they were willing to accept the mission because the Heavenly Profound Sect had a huge influence. They knew that they would definitely not fail.
But now, those fourteen powerful disciples of the Heavenly Profound Sect had been slaughtered like fish by Xiang Nan. Such a difference in strength was no longer understandable to ordinary martial artists.
Xiang Nan tossed his right hand and the giant saber automatically attached itself to his back.
Half an hour later, Xiang Nan refreshed the array power on his body.
"Xiang Nan, you" The black-flagged man followed Xiang Nan. Seeing that Xiang Nan wanted to leave the city, he hesitated to say something.
Xiang Nan was in a terrible mood. He tilted his head slightly and said, "I saved your people during my trip to the Devil Sea."
"And today, you all helped me with all your might."
"I remember this favor. If you encounter any trouble in the future, as long as that trouble does not go against the righteousness, morality, or conscience, you can come to the Haoran Sect to find me. My name is Xiang Nan."
After saying that, Xiang Nan jumped up, and with a loud thunderous sound, a huge lightning wing appeared behind him. With a few flaps of the wing, Xiang Nan had already turned into an afterimage and flew towards the east.
Looking at Xiang Nan's departing figure, the black-flagged man sucked in a breath of cold air and rejoiced, "Fortunately, in the end, we did not stand against such a terrifying figure."
"I, Black Flag, have made a difficult decision to protect Xiang Nan. I'm afraid this decision is the most correct and valuable one in the past ten years."
On the east side of the city, Xiang Nan found his four-winged griffin and spread out his wings to soar eastward.
Black Jiang City was his last stop. There was no need for him to stop on the road. He could return to the The Haotian Empire within three days.
However, things were often undesirable.
When Xiang Nan flew to the border between the two countries, above Ku Hai City, four strands of fierce Yuan Qi suddenly chased after him in the distant sky.
The four strands of Yuan Qi instantly arrived in front of Xiang Nan and transformed into four middle-aged men.
Upon seeing these four people, Xiang Nan's heart could no longer calm down. These four were actually experts at the fifth level of the Heaven Scryer Realm!
"It's over" Xiang Nan's heart sank, and he didn't even have the thought of escaping.
He knew that it was absolutely impossible for him to escape from the four Heaven Scryer Realm old monsters. Even if he used the Sun Sword Qi, he could only kill one of them. The best outcome would only be to kill two of them like last time.
"Xiang Nan, you know you can't escape." Amongst the four old monsters, a middle-aged man stepped out from the void.
"The Western Regions are vast. Perhaps we won't be able to catch you within our borders, but we know that you will definitely return to the The Haotian Empire . Then how can you cross this path?" The man said with his hands behind his back.
"Hahahaha!" Xiang Nan looked up and laughed. He took out a jar of wine and drank it all in one breath.
He wiped the corner of his mouth and laughed loudly, "Come on! This daddy has already risked his life! Didn't you want my head?"
"Go ahead! I'll follow you all until you die today!"
"What a big tone! A mere Origin Returning Martial Cultivator actually dares to speak to Senior Heaven Scryer in such a manner." The middle-aged man's eyes twitched slightly when he heard this. He raised his right hand and said, "Alright, I'll help you!"
With that, the terrifying power of the heavens condensed in this person's hand. The power of the heavens transformed into a huge cage of light and immediately covered Xiang Nan.
At this moment, the sky suddenly lit up.
It was already dusk, and the last glow of the setting sun was about to dissipate.
However, for some reason, the sky suddenly lit up as bright as day, giving the evening a scorching heat at noon.
"What?" The four old monsters raised their heads at the same time. Upon seeing this, all four of them were dumbfounded.
In the sky, in the middle of the sky, there was also a sun!
When Xiang Nan saw the sun, his nose turned sour and his eyes turned red.
"My disciples, how can I allow you to knead them?"
A breathtaking figure walked down from the "sun".
"You … you're … damn it, it's Sun Peak Master Xu Caiyue!" The four old monsters were scared out of their wits.
Xu Caiyue was dressed in an ordinary plain cloth gown with a fluffy ponytail and was dressed in a neutral manner.
Xu Caiyue was an expert at the late Divine Martial Stage. How could the four old monsters dare to fight against such a person? They immediately scattered and fled.
Xu Caiyue's face was expressionless. She raised her right hand and clenched it slightly.
The four old monsters were instantly pulled back by an invisible force. The four of them leaned against each other and struggled desperately, unable to escape their restraints.
"You, you have to respect yourself!" The middle-aged man panicked and said, "Senior Divine Martial Realm experts, do you still want to attack us Heaven Scryer Realm juniors? If this were to spread out, wouldn't you be afraid of being laughed at by all the martial artists in the world?"
Xu Caiyue snapped her fingers, and the middle-aged man in the Heaven Scryer Realm immediately exploded.
"Shame?" Xu Caiyue tilted her head slightly and snapped her fingers three times. The other three Heaven Scrying Realm martial artists also exploded.
"Master!" Xiang Nan hurriedly flew to Xu Caiyue's side and said happily, "Why did you come to the Western Regions?"
Xu Caiyue asked curiously, "When you came out to train, your strength increased, but your intelligence decreased. Didn't I come for you?"
Originally, Xiang Nan wanted to get tired of his master, but now, Xu Caiyue's words almost made him vomit blood.
"How did they make things difficult for you?" Xu Caiyue asked.
Xiang Nan told Xu Caiyue everything that had happened along the way.
Xu Caiyue nodded. She grabbed Xiang Nan's shoulder with one hand and immediately flew out like a beam of bright light.
"Ah? Master, aren't we going back to the Central Plains?" Xiang Nan suddenly discovered that Xu Caiyue was actually taking him westward. That was clearly the Western Regions.
However, Xu Caiyue did not answer. She grabbed Xiang Nan and flew out for tens of thousands of miles. Then, she immediately hid her Yuan Qi fluctuations and grabbed Xiang Nan and flew out for another ten thousand miles.
Later, she placed Xiang Nan on the ground and said, "Fly into the sky and release your Essence."
"Master?" Xiang Nan was stunned.
Xu Caiyue said, "I told you to let go, you let go, stop talking!"
"Yes." Xiang Nan seemed to have more or less guessed Xu Caiyue's thoughts.
Thus, Xiang Nan unreservedly released his Yuan Qi from the sky.
Not long after, a Heaven-peeping Realm martial artist suddenly appeared in the wilderness. That person quickly chased after Xiang Nan and shouted, "Xiang Nan! Let's see where you're going …"
A ray of sunlight shot into the sky. It was Xu Caiyue!
"Ah, you" The Heaven-Scrying Realm martial artist looked at Xu Caiyue with a panicked expression.
Xu Caiyue raised her right arm slightly and shot out a ray of sunlight towards the martial artist.
The Heaven Scryer martial artist didn't even have time to react before his body was pierced through and he died an unknown death.
Xu Caiyue grabbed Xiang Nan's shoulder and continued to fly west. After 30,000 kilometers, she left Xiang Nan in the sky and said, "Release your Yuan Qi."
"Hahahaha!" Xiang Nan laughed loudly, "Alright, let's go!"
After saying that, he continued to release his Yuan Qi.
In less than ten minutes, three Heaven Scryer realm martial artists flew over. Two of them were at the third level of Heaven Scryer, while the other was at the sixth level of Heaven Scryer!
"It's Xiang Nan! That's right, it's him!"
"I really can't find a place to break through my iron shoes!"
On the ground, Xu Caiyue transformed into a ray of sunlight that shot straight into the air. She looked at the three people and said, "I really can't find a place to step through my iron shoes."
With that, three fingers snapped and the three Heaven Scrying Realm old monsters exploded at the same time.
Xu Caiyue grabbed Xiang Nan's arm and said, "I won't care if a Origin Realm martial artist chases after you. However, the Heaven Scryer Realm is an old and disrespectful person who also came to capture you. I will definitely not sit idly by and ignore you."
"Warriors of the Western Regions, are you really bullying my disciples for not having a backer?"
"Let's go. Continue westward. How they bullied you, Master will help you bully you back."
