In this world, there was no monogamy. For hundreds of thousands of years, it was normal for a man to marry several women.
Men think it's only natural for wives and concubines to gather together, and women think the same.
However, when one's heart really fell in love with another woman, there was no other woman in his heart.
In Xiang Nan's heart, there was only the girl in her dream, the girl who had used half her life to revive an artifact spirit.
Some women are smart on the surface, but maybe not.
Xiang Nan had already made it clear that he was a person who hated evil.
But Dream butterfly , Jiang Xuelu, and Whampoa Ruyan were all very smart, much smarter than ordinary people.
However, their intelligence was used to please Xiang Nan.
But in reality, the woman who could really tempt Xiang Nan was not how good she was to him, but how kind she was!
Even if a girl did not like Xiang Nan, Xiang Nan did not mind chasing after her for her kindness and innocence.
Xiang Nan wasn't too hard-hearted, but in this world where the weak preyed on the strong, there were really too few kind-hearted girls.
That night, Xiang Nan added six more Light Slashes to the Brightmoon Haotian Mirror, bringing the total to seventeen.
At dawn, Xiang Nan returned to the Martial God Tower and met Dead Eye .
The Dead Eye placed a storage ring in Xiang Nan's hand and said, "Inside, there is a Beginner Profound Grade Equipment Refining Furnace."
Xiang Nan was delighted and said, "Are you willing to lend it to me now? Are you no longer bargaining with me?"
Deathpupil smiled and said, "Because you let me see your higher value. I know that with your temper, you will definitely not go to the Whampoa Aristocrat Clan to say good things to me."
"That's why I refused to lend you the furnace that day. But today, I am willing to invest in you."
"I will definitely not stay as the fifth lord of the island." Xiang Nan sent the storage ring back and said, "If that's what you're thinking."
Deathpupil pushed the ring back and said, "I'm very accurate. From the time Xiong Zhan issued the invitation, I had probably guessed that you would refuse."
"This smelting furnace is not about trading with you, nor is it about what you want to do for me. Rather, I want to make a true friend, not for anything else, but for our friendship."
"Friendship?" Xiang Nan laughed, "I'm very surprised to hear such words from a businessman like you."
Deathpupil shrugged. "I never had friends, only allies with entangled interests. That's because I don't believe that other people are close to me. They really want to build a friendship with me. They are all for my wealth."
"But to you, I can rest assured that even if the entire world is crazy about wealth, at least I know that you, Xiang Nan, are not a greedy person."
Dead Eye took out a second ring and handed it to Xiang Nan. "This is a Primordial Essence Stone. It's for nothing."
Xiang Nan frowned. He pushed Dead Eye 's hand back, "We have an appointment. The Martial God Sword will be exchanged for Essence Stones."
Dead Eye laughed, "What did I say? Even if I gave it to you for nothing, you might not want it."
"You're still testing me." Xiang Nan shook his head and said, "I will take the forging furnace. I am not blessed with your friendship."
"It's best to maintain a pure trading relationship between you and me."
Dead Eye laughed loudly, "I am also very surprised to hear such words coming out of your mouth, Xiang Nan."
"After today's five battles, when you win the championship, I will bring you to the Northeast Lord and send you to the Progress Guard."
"There are also many properties that belong to me at the exhibition. With your protection, my heart will be more at ease. This is a transaction, right? You don't need to have to bear the burden of kindness."
Dead Eye waved his hand and turned to leave.
Xiang Nan looked at her back and thought to himself, This woman is really amazing. In less than a month, she has almost eaten through my temper.
Sigh, it's not for no reason that a person can make a fortune.
Martial God Tower, nineteenth day.
Today, the 18th floor was still packed with people. Many people even stood in the audience seats and waited for the start of the competition because they didn't have any seats.
This was a day of miracles. Everyone firmly believed that Lei Gui would win the championship.
On the first floor, the old man in charge of registration stroked his beard and said, "Looks like what Dead Eye said is true. That young man really can bring me a great surprise."
Even the lord of the Northeast did not know Xiang Nan's identity, but the old man knew that he had personally registered for Xiang Nan.
However, he did not say that even if someone else killed him, he would not say it because keeping it a secret for others was already the greatest value in his life.
When Lei Gui walked onto the arena wearing that ferocious mask, the crowd was filled with shouts.
Today, Guan Xiao and the others also came. Even the five people from the emergency team ran over to watch the match.
"I really wish to fight him." The yellow-robed man hugged his shoulders and looked at Xiang Nan on the arena. "Unfortunately, I have never been interested in the Martial God Tower . If I knew that I would meet him, I would definitely start from the first floor."
Guan Xiao smiled faintly, "In terms of actual combat, I can confirm that you are very strong, but in terms of arena competition, you may not be Lei Gui's opponent."
The yellow-robed man said, "Whoever says that you must win in battle? Losing can also be very pleasant and enjoyable."
"Besides, my duty is never to defeat others, but to kill them."
Guan Xiao nodded and deeply thought, "Defeating a person is indeed a different concept from killing a person."
"The competition has begun." The audience cheered.
Xiang Nan stood in the middle of the arena and drew out an ordinary iron saber.
Today's referee was no longer a Xiong Zhan . He had already understood Lei Gui. He knew what would happen today. He had no interest in a battle that could be predicted with certainty.
In the first match, Xiang Nan won in one move.
The second, third, and fourth matches were all easily won.
The fifth and final battle of the Xiang Nan Martial God Tournament began.
A woman walked up.
The moment he saw this woman's appearance, Lei Gui, who had always been calm and composed, finally started to tremble.
Someone could see that Lei Gui's fists were tightly clenched and his arms were trembling.
"It's you?" Xiang Nan tried his best to suppress the anger in his heart. He was trembling with excitement.
The woman said, "You know me? It seems that in the outside world, we have met at least once, but I can't remember where I've seen an expert like you."
Xiang Nan took a deep breath and said, "I really didn't expect that the grand Heavenly Profound Sect's Elder Xuan Qingzhu would actually participate in such a competition."
The woman nodded and said, "It seems that you really know me. However, there is nothing strange about it. I came to the Martial God Tower a few months earlier than you."
Xiang Nan was very excited. He tried his best to calm himself down, but he couldn't.
Xuan Qingzhu really came here for the exhibition. It seemed that she had come to the The island of exile a few months in advance to step on it.
In other words, on the day of the exhibition, the experts of the The Profound Sky Sect would not fly in from outside the island. They had already infiltrated the island and passed the trial of the Prisoner's Mark, officially settling here.
In this battle, Xiang Nan was under pressure, but the motivation was even greater.
When he was still Bai Muchen, he had grown up with Xuan Qingzhu and studied martial arts together.
No one understood Xuan Qingzhu better than Xiang Nan. She was the only person who could compete with Bai Muchen, but the outcome was even!
After she took away Bai Muchen's five Heavenly Spiritual Veins, Bai Muchen didn't even have a single advantage.
In this life, Xiang Nan thanked the heavens for giving him another chance to fight her fairly.
