The sturdy man was speechless.
The Fourth Prince nodded and said, "You kidnapped this person. Do you know how serious this crime is?"
As he spoke, the fourth prince took out a token and said, "Take the token and go back to wait for the entire sect to be plagiarized."
"Ah!" Gongsun Qing suddenly screamed. She never thought that things would be so big!
Just because he offended a Xiang Tianlong? Because of this, he was able to make his own Gongsun Clan plagiarize?
"Fourth Master." Xiang Nan frowned and suddenly said, "The entire sect is being plagiarized. It can't be."
"I knew you wouldn't have the heart." The fourth prince laughed and put the token back into his sleeve.
He was sure of Xiang Nan's character, otherwise, the token would have fallen on the strong man's face instead of being held in his hand for a long time.
Xiang Nan smiled bitterly.
The Fourth Prince said, "Tell me, how do you plan to settle this matter?"
Xiang Nan sighed and said, "Originally, it wasn't a big deal, but they threatened the entire Xiang Clan. I can endure anything, but I can't endure this."
"Let the Gongsun Clan go. I don't want to see this clan anymore."
The Fourth Prince nodded and said, "Pass down the order. The Gongsun family will marry off to the South China Sea border. They will not be allowed to step into the Central Plains for the rest of their lives. They will not be allowed to engage in business, martial arts, or leave the island without permission. Otherwise, they will be punished for treason."
The Fourth Prince looked at the strong man and said, "If it weren't for your loyalty to our Haotian Imperial Clan, the punishment would not be so light."
The sturdy man knew that it was useless to say anything, but he only sighed and kowtowed to admit his punishment.
The Fourth Prince looked at the others and said, "Everyone present today has a share."
"From now on, each of your clans will pay 50 times the tax each year. Three years later, the punishment will be abolished."
Everyone was just about to cry without tears.
Fifty times the tax, are you kidding me? That was almost half of the total income of their clans in a year. If they said that their vital energy was seriously damaged, they would probably go bankrupt.
The Fourth Prince turned to look at Xiang Nan and smiled, "Now, are you willing to let go?"
Xiang Nan smiled and shook his right hand. The rope naturally fell off.
"Come, accompany me to the night scenery." The Fourth Prince grabbed Xiang Nan's right hand and said, "This year, Haotian has changed a lot. Come and see the beautiful scenery we've worked hard to create."
Xiang Nan smiled and said, "You still want to keep me by your side."
The Fourth Prince also smiled, "You still refuse to stay and help me."
Xiang Nan said, "I am a martial artist. I don't know anything about the management of the government. It's better to roam outside with a knife in hand."
"Alright." The Fourth Prince nodded, "In the past, I insisted on keeping you here, but afterwards, you used facts to prove that you can still contribute to our Haotian Imperial Clan when you are outside."
"Then it's settled. I'll settle inside and you'll be busy outside. When you break through the clouds, it'll be the day I become an emperor."
"Your Highness thinks highly of me?" Xiang Nan said.
The Fourth Prince said, "I have always been accurate in judging people. Besides, aren't you already at the sixth level of the Heaven Scryer Stage? At your age, Yue Donghai is only at the eighth level of the Heaven Origin Stage."
These conversations were said by the two of them outside.
As for the underground warehouse of the Immortal Ascension Pavilion, the burly man suddenly jumped up and fiercely grabbed Gongsun Qing's neck, "I'll strangle you to death!"
Everyone else was in a daze. They only felt as if they had walked around the Gate of Death, and they were no longer in the mood to pull a fight.
The sturdy man almost strangled Gongsun Qing to death. Seeing that Gongsun Qing was getting more angry and less angry, he suddenly let go of his hands.
Gongsun Qing coughed for a long time, but she actually gritted her teeth and said, "What exactly is the background of that person? Even if I die, I still have to die to understand!"
The strong man said angrily, "Tell me first, how did you offend him!"
Gongsun Qing explained everything.
The burly man was so angry that blood flowed out of his seven orifices. He slapped Gongsun Qing and sent her flying. He gritted his teeth and said, "A single thought is a difference! A single thought is a difference!"
"At that point, he became my brother-in-law, but in the end, you pushed him to the opposite side!"
Gongsun Qing covered her face and screamed, "Who exactly is he! Why did he say that he would punish our Gongsun Clan? I refuse to accept it!"
"Without him, there wouldn't be the current Haotian Empire, nor the current six great sects," the sturdy man fell to the ground in a daze.
"Who is he? Haha … he is Xiang Nan."
Gongsun Qing was completely stunned.
Xiao Wei looked at Gongsun Qing in shock, "Xiang Nan? You almost married Xiang Nan? Why, how did you end up like this …"
"Holy sh*t." The handsome man was so regretful that his intestines turned green. He actually began to cry hopelessly.
If he offended the people in the entire Southern Domain that he shouldn't have offended, would he have a good life in the future?
That night, Xiang Nan found Xiao He. The two of them went to the Xiang Manor to bid farewell to their parents, and then went to the Haoran Sect to bid farewell to Xu Caiyue.
At dawn, the two of them stepped onto the teleportation array and began a new round of journey.
A strong light flashed and Xiang Nan and Xiao He appeared on the land of the Nine Firmaments Continent. They were then called flying ships and entered the teleportation array once again, entering the Sea of Forgetfulness.
Xiang Nan was not very happy when he returned home this time.
He didn't expect that after his death, the Fourth Prince wouldn't be able to settle his family properly.
Even though the Fourth Prince said that this would never happen again.
However, Xiang Nan knew that it was because he was still alive!
What if he really died? Will the Xiang Clan be neglected? Whether or not they were left alone when they encountered something like the Gongsun Clan.
Xiang Nan understood that this world was always realistic. Everything was related to interests.
The stronger he became, the better his clan could live and be guaranteed to survive.
The fourth prince was willing to treat him differently because he saw his potential. Otherwise, with his status as the Haotian Imperial Clan, how could he care about the life and death of a small Xiang Clan?
The next day, in Haojing, a small beast blood shop located in a golden area opened.
At the corner of the plaque in front of the shop, there were a few words written: The Xiang Clan belongs to.
This day was also the most lively day in Haojing in the past hundred years.
Although the shop was small, the guests who came to congratulate them were all extremely important figures.
Haoran Sect was the first to arrive, sending a plaque and countless congratulatory gifts.
The second Divine Feather Sect disciple came, followed by the Starsea Sect, Primordial Chaos Sect, Profound Nether Sect, and even the Azure Nether Sect.
At the end of the opening ceremony, the fourth prince and the ninth princess personally arrived to cut the ribbon for this small shop.
This matter shocked the entire Haojing and even the entire Haotian Empire.
For a moment, the word "belonging to the Xiang Clan" became an extremely important name.
That afternoon, almost all the large clans in Haojing heard the news.
Xiang Zhanxiong looked at the sky and suddenly felt very satisfied.
The so-called'one person attaining the Dao of the Chicken and Dog Ascending to the Heavens' was worth it. After so many years of struggling, in order to nurture Xiang Nan, he guarded the ruined Xiang Clan, which had once been covered in withered grass, and never gave up.
Finally, today, the Xiang Clan saw the flowers blooming and the sunshine shining brightly.
When the Fourth Prince and the Ninth Princess put Xiang Zhanxiong in the middle and laughed at the ribbon-cutting.
Xiang Nan's parents were already sobbing.
Outside the city, the Gongsun Clan was escorted by heavy soldiers and embarked on the road of mating with a dispirited expression.
Some clans, because of a junior, could ascend to the palace hall.
Some clans had abandoned their inheritance for several lifetimes because of a junior.
Dad, is that what you mean?
