The next morning, the large group was about to leave. They wanted to leave Nether Lightning Prison and return to Black Tortoise City.
Xiao Jun was refreshed. Although Yuan Meng had destroyed his romance last night, it did not affect his good mood.
Before the team left, Xiang Nan, Yuan Meng, Xiao Jun, and Feng Xuan raised their wine glasses and faced the Nether Lightning Prison.
"To Shen Liang!" Xiang Nan's expression was heavy as he sprinkled the wine on the ground.
"To Shen Liang!" Yuan Meng and the others also said in unison, spilled the wine in the cup.
After that, they stepped onto the steel ship and slowly left the Nether Lightning Prison.
Behind him, Hong Gang and his guards waved goodbye to Xiang Nan and the others.
"They are the real heroes." Xiang Nan sighed sincerely as he looked through the window at Hong Gang and the others who were gradually pulling away.
"Yes." Beside him, Yuan Meng nodded heavily, "We are just passers-by from the Nether Lightning Prison. They are the heroes guarding this place. They sprinkled their lives and blood on this dark land to defend their country and people."
Xuan Qingzhu arrived at the main hall and announced the results of the battle between the sects.
The contest was divided into two missions. The first mission was to repair the spatial rift and eliminate half of the contestants.
Only 520 of them survived the Nether Lightning Prison.
This time, 260 contestants had been eliminated, including the more than 100 who had returned to the challenger camp.
None of them were able to complete the mission.
Other than that, Xiang Nan was first, Yue Donghai was second, and Duanmu Wuji was third
Yuan Meng completed the task in the middle, and Xiao Jun is the most dangerous, can be ranked at the end, he should have been eliminated.
However, because his spatial rift had undergone a strange change, the difficulty of repairing it had greatly increased. Under the pressure exerted by the Star Guild, Xuan Qingzhu could only make an exception and allow Xiao Jun to advance.
Feng Xuan's spatial rift was completed with Shen Liang's help. Unfortunately, Shen Liang stayed in Nether Lightning Prison forever and could never return.
"We still have 260 people." Xuan Qingzhu slowly walked in front of the crowd and said, "Half of the next mission will still be eliminated, that is, 130 people will advance."
"After these two missions are completed, we will return to the Southern Domain for the final stage of the Sect Ranking Tournament and compete for the final victory or defeat."
"Of course." Xuan Qingzhu looked at Xiang Nan and said, "If the four of you are eliminated in the final mission of the situational competition, then the sect ranking competition will be over. Do you understand?"
"What's the next mission?" Feng Xuan asked.
Xuan Qingzhu said, "I can't reveal it to you yet. After we return to Black Tortoise City, I will continue to contact the Star Guild. After confirming the mission, we will talk about it at that time."
Time slowly flowed.
The giant steel ship docked outside Black Tortoise City. When Xiang Nan and the others entered the city, they saw that the main road was covered with petals.
The people stood on both sides of the road, raising their wreaths and shouting the names of Xiang Nan and Xiao Jun.
This scene caught Xiang Nan and the others off guard.
It turned out that the matter of Xiang Nan and Xiao Jun desperately repairing the spatial rift had already spread back to the Star Guild and was known throughout Black Tortoise City.
In addition, Xiang Nan had previously killed a Hellhound in the city, which left a deep impression on the people in the city.
Naturally, this scene happened in front of him.
"Xiang Nan! Xiang Nan!"
The men on both sides of the road shouted Xiang Nan's name. They were impressed by Xiang Nan's heroism.
The women, on the other hand, were not very interested in the hot blood of men. They shouted Xiao Jun's name like crazy. They were convinced by Xiao Jun's "handsomeness".
"Xiao Jun, I love you!"
"Xiao Jun, I want to marry you!"
Xiang Nan felt a little embarrassed. This scene was too deliberate and pretentious.
Xiao Jun didn't feel the slightest bit uncomfortable. He smiled and continuously blew kisses at the girls.
Xuan Qingzhu, the contestants from the The Profound Sky Sect , all had extremely ugly expressions on their faces!
This group of people was completely ignored by the people of Black Tortoise City, and no one was willing to look at them.
"Damn it." Zhu Qingfeng gritted his teeth angrily, "We brought Xiang Nan and the others to the Central Plains. In the end, we were left out."
"These people of the Central Plains are truly blind!"
"If you want to cheer, you should also cheer the The Profound Sky Sect ! He, Xiang Nan, is nothing."
Xuan Qingzhu glared coldly at Zhu Qingfeng and immediately shut his mouth in fear.
If someone heard Zhu Qingfeng muttering to himself, it would be even more embarrassing.
This time, after Xiang Nan and the others returned to the branch of the Star Guild, their treatment was immediately reversed!
For the first time, no one was willing to pay attention to Xiang Nan and the others. The Heavenly Profound Sect was the target of the Guild members' reception.
But now, as soon as Xiang Nan arrived, the entire guild was stirred up. Everyone surrounded Xiang Nan Xiao Jun and excitedly asked about the spatial rift.
"Hey, do you need to arrange a meal for us?" A Heavenly Profound Sect disciple grabbed a Guild member and asked.
The guild member impatiently shook off his hand and said, "We don't have time to go out and eat by ourselves! Hey, Xiang Nan, don't go. Have you seen a Purgatory level demon? What do you look like?"
The guild members surrounded Xiang Nan and the others.
The group of disciples led by Xuan Qingzhu stood alone outside the crowd.
Xuan Qingzhu's face was ashen as he gritted his teeth and said, "Go out and eat!"
After saying that, the group of people left aggressively, but in this situation, the so-called aggressiveness actually became somewhat dejected.
The past three days had been very difficult for Xiang Nan. Everyone was really too enthusiastic.
Three days later, Xuan Qingzhu returned with the second phase and the last mission.
She gathered all the contestants and announced the details of the mission.
"This mission is relatively complicated."
"In the Forgotten Sea outside the Central Continent, there are numerous islands scattered like stars."
"We have received definite information that there are quite a few dark forces strongholds on those islands."
"Most of them are strongholds of high-level martial artists. They have been uprooted by the Star Guild."
"The remaining scattered strongholds require us to sneak in and launch a sneak attack without alarming anyone."
"What are those strongholds for?" Xiao Jun asked curiously.
Xuan Qingzhu glanced at Xiao Jun and said, "The Central Plains is not as peaceful as we have seen. Other than the Star Guild, there are also extremely ferocious dark forces."
"In order to deal with the demons better, the Star Guild will escort the captured demons back for research."
"During this process, the dark forces once intercepted the escort team and snatched away quite a number of demons."
