It was indeed a person, and Xiang Nan had also received a positive answer to this point.
He wasn't just fighting Xue Bufan. During this time, he had already scanned it with his Lightning Photoelectric Eyes.
An exceptionally weak Spiritual Energy fluctuation was still slowly evaporating in the air.
"This is a sign." Xiang Nan rubbed his chin.
"What sign?" Su Ran hurriedly asked.
"Someone wants to win the championship, and the most effective way is to steal the puppets of the opposing teams," Xiang Nan said.
"If I'm not mistaken, it's not just the Xue Clan that has been stolen. I'm afraid other personal squad puppets have also been stolen."
Before Xiang Nan could finish his words, a messenger suddenly flew into Captain Wang's hand. Captain Wang activated his identification and his entire face darkened. "Senior Niu Zhenniu's combat puppet has also been stolen."
"At the same time, there are Li Yongliang of the Li Clan, Zhao Mu of the Zhao Clan, Sun Shaowei of the Sun Clan, and so on. A total of 30 puppets of the personal squadron have been stolen!"
As they spoke, everyone focused their gazes on Xiang Nan.
Just now, it was Xiang Nan's judgment that was confirmed by the news Captain Wang received!
"What exactly do you know!" Captain Wang strode in front of Xiang Nan and shouted, "Do you know something? Hurry up and tell me!"
Xiang Nan hugged his shoulders and said, "Is this your attitude of pleading for help? I am only responsible for protecting Miss Su Ran. I have no obligation towards you."
Xiang Nan was very unhappy in his heart. They were clearly asking for help from him, but they were using such a strict tone as if they were interrogating a prisoner.
Captain Wang gritted his teeth and said in a calm tone, "Young Master Xiang Bei, please give me some pointers. If you know anything, please let me know."
"Xiang Bei, there's no harm in telling them." Su Ran still pleaded with Xiang Nan for Captain Wang's sake. She could not bear to see these people being arrogant, but she still had to take into account their favors.
Xiang Nan crossed his arms and said, "I don't know the inside story, but I can roughly guess who is behind it."
"If my guess is correct, the person who stole the other 30 combat puppets should be the same person as the one who stole the Xue Family's combat puppets."
"Are you joking?" Captain Wang frowned, "One person stole thirty battle puppets in just an hour? This is simply an arcane dream."
"It's a fantasy to all of you, but to some people, it can be considered mercy." Xiang Nan smiled and said, "Miss Su Ran, shouldn't we go now?"
Captain Wang hurriedly chased after him and asked, "Who exactly is playing tricks on him?"
Xiang Nan said, "Night Demon, First Stage Hall."
"Night Demon? First Grade Hall?" Captain Wang recalled it and shook his head, "I've never heard of it."
Even in the Southern Domain, very few people knew about Night Demons. It wasn't until after the Battle of Beast Spirit Island that they finally appeared on the surface.
In the distant Northern Domain, even the sects on their own territory hadn't figured it out, let alone the Night Demon.
"You're not from the sect. It's normal that you haven't heard of it." Xiang Nan said, "You just need to know that they are a group of experts that are very difficult to deal with."
"Expert?" Captain Wang narrowed his eyes and sneered, "I've seen many experts. Since they dare to cause trouble in my territory, let's have a good fight and see whose fist is harder!"
Xiang Nan had seen many arrogant people like this, and they were exactly the same as Thirteenth Street. However, Captain Wang and his subordinates were more than one level inferior to Thirteenth Street, so it was useless to explain to them.
"Miss Su Ran, I have to trouble you to come with me again." Captain Wang said apologetically, "I suspect that the so-called Night Demon martial artist will attack other clans. I have to be on guard."
"What do you think, Xiang Bei?" Currently, Su Ran trusted Xiang Nan the most and listened to him.
Xiang Nan said, "If you don't have any other plans, it doesn't matter to me."
"Alright! Then go take another look." Su Ran nodded.
Captain Wang studied it for a while and discovered that the clans that had lost their puppets were all teams with high winning potential. Furthermore, they were all individual teams.
For example, none of the fifty provincial squads had been stolen.
After summarizing the situation of the stolen squad, they discovered that these 30 clans had a chance to win the top 30.
"The next one is very likely Zheng Youcai. Mr. Zheng's squad, let's hurry up and go! If we're too late, it'll be too late." After Captain Wang gave the order, everyone headed towards the Zheng Clan again.
"Hey, what about me?" Xue Bufan covered his face and chased after him, but Captain Wang and the others didn't have time to pay attention to him.
After Captain Wang brought fifty experts and explained his intentions to Zheng Youcai, Zheng Youcai was also shocked.
"Thank you so much. It's really hard for you guys to come here to protect me." Then Zheng Youcai thanked them repeatedly and arranged for everyone to have good wine and dishes.
Captain Wang waved his hand and said, "There's no hurry to eat or drink. Brothers, pull up the formation and defend the Zheng Clan! You can't let a fly in!"
"Yes!" The other forty Heaven Scryer Realm experts immediately turned into afterimages and ambushed the Zheng Clan's corners.
It was night and the wind was silent.
Captain Wang personally protected Su Ran and Zheng Youcai, and his subordinates also led nine guards.
The other 40 people cooperated with the Zheng Clan's generals and closely guarded the entire clan. There was even a large team of 50 people. They were focused on defending the training room where the puppets were stored. It could be said that the surroundings were completely blocked.
Everyone did their jobs, and Su Ran and the others were restless in the hall.
In the courtyard, in the garden, in a wooden pavilion, Xiang Nan drank alone.
He thought to himself that he had to think of a way to win the championship. Only in this way would he be able to understand the secrets on Su Ran's body.
The secret that even the First Grade Hall valued so much was obviously of great origin.
It could be a Void Stone, or it could be an incomparably powerful martial skill.
Just as he was pondering, the night suddenly fell silent.
The weather was very stuffy. It was as if rain was coming. It was originally very quiet, but now, the entire Zheng Manor was suddenly filled with a very wonderful atmosphere.
Xiang Nan held the wine jug in his hand, the corner of his mouth curled up slightly and said, "Coming."
In the silent night, a gentle breeze suddenly appeared, rustling the fallen leaves.
A moment later, a loud roar came from the direction of the training ground, "Lost! Lost the puppet!"
"What!" Captain Wang stood up abruptly and angrily said, "How could he lose it! What a ghost! So many experts defended against a Zheng Clan, yet someone stole the puppet under his nose!"
"Investigate! That person must still be hiding in the manor! Even if you dig three feet into the ground, you must find him for me!"
Many of the so-called experts were immediately thrown into a mess.
At the entrance of the training ground, fifty martial artists lined up. Not to mention the main entrance, even the walls of the training ground were surrounded, and not even a mosquito could fly in.
However, three of the puppets were lost without warning, making people feel ridiculous.
In the courtyard, Xiang Nan held the wine jug and smiled. He looked at the distant breeze and muttered to himself, "Forget it, for that girl Su Ran to be so stubborn, I'll help her again."
"This can also be considered as me looking for a first-grade hall to get back some opportunities."
With that, Xiang Nan held the wine jug in his right hand and lightly tapped his toes on the ground. Then, he floated out of the courtyard wall.
Ahead, in the night sky, a gentle breeze suddenly condensed into a figure.
The man turned his head to look at Xiang Nan behind him, and shook his hand with two dense cold lights, shooting towards him.
Those two concealed weapons were extremely fast! It was actually not even able to bring about the sound of the wind.
Xiang Nan quickly stretched out his right hand, and his three fingers were already holding two inch long blades.
Instead, Xiang Nan stopped chasing after him.
Seeing that Xiang Nan hadn't followed him, the figure hurriedly flew into the distance.
At the same time, at the rear.
Xiang Nan drank a mouthful of wine and threw away the wine jug. His entire body suddenly turned into a dense ball of lightning and shot into the sky, hiding in the dark clouds.
Rain poured down! Lightning flashed in the dark clouds.
