That handsome man refused to leave. Xiang Nan had no choice but to pass the time with him because he was bored.
"Alright, I'll treat you as the beginning of the month." Xiang Nan said, "If it was the beginning of the month, you shouldn't be uninterested in the fragments. After all, they are your weapons."
The handsome man said, "My Nether Sword is not something that can be easily fused. Even if they find all the fragments, it is still useless."
Xiang Nan said, "Alright, then how did you save me that day?"
The handsome man shrugged his shoulders, "I came out of my palace and happened to see you being pinched by a rank seven demon. I ordered him to let you go."
Xiang Nan's heart skipped a beat. At that time, he was indeed strangled by that terrifying demon. No one else should have seen this.
But the handsome man actually knew!
But this was too unreasonable. It was a demon at the beginning of the month, how could it be a demon! Moreover, the realm at the beginning of the month couldn't be so low.
Earlier this month, he was injured by the Northern Emperor! It wasn't like the eight-eyed snake had been sealed for thousands of years.
Pure injuries usually wouldn't drop to the next realm.
"I'm also stupid." Xiang Nan slapped his forehead and thought to himself, "Do I believe what he said? This person is a thief! How could he be telling the truth?"
"Then I'll ask you again." Xiang Nan thought for a moment and said, "If you are at the beginning of the month, why is your body belonging to the demon race?"
The handsome man said, "Because I want to sneak into the territory of the human race, it is very dangerous for me to come here, so I refine an avatar and pretend to be a demon."
"So your realm is also very low?" Xiang Nan asked.
The handsome man said, "In order to conceal the sharpness of my incarnation, I suppressed my cultivation to the second level of Divine Martial Arts."
"Then what exactly are you looking for?" Xiang Nan asked.
The handsome man sighed and said, "I told you, I don't know what I'm looking for."
"Big Snake, do you think what he said is true?" Xiang Nan asked the eight-eyed snake in his heart.
"What the f*ck! This person is full of nonsense."
"He's not an avatar at all. He's clearly his true self!"
"You know?" Xiang Nanqi said.
The eight-eyed snake said, "Nonsense, who am I! I am a big worm that has lived for more than a million years!"
Xiang Nan frowned and said to the handsome man, "Don't lie to me. My eyes have the ability to see through everything. I can see that you are not an avatar at all."
"Aiya, this …" The handsome man smiled awkwardly. "You saw through it."
"F*ck … I was almost deceived by you." Xiang Nan heaved a sigh of relief.
The serpent said, "This person is acting strangely. His words are both true and false. He is definitely not the Demon King at the beginning of the month, but he should not be a good person."
"After you save him this time, it's best that you don't have any dealings with him, so as to avoid implicating you."
Xiang Nan took a deep breath and said to the handsome man, "For my sake, can you tell me the truth about how you saved me?"
The handsome man said helplessly, "Alright. Actually, I walked out of the Endless Forest that day. I happened to encounter a rank seven demon wanting to kill you, so I hid it with my Immeasurable Cloak and didn't dare to move on the side."
"Later, a woman came from somewhere. That woman seemed to be a devil, and she lured away a rank seven devil."
"I thought you might have some treasures with you, so I brought you back. But after searching around, I discovered that you only have one knife worth some money."
Xiang Nan's mind buzzed.
A woman, like a devil … Guan Xiao?
Xiang Nan was stunned.
The big snake said, "That Guan Xiao treats you well. He actually sacrificed his life to save you. I wonder if she is alive or dead now."
Xiang Nan didn't know why, but he felt a faint pain in his heart. He said, "Even you didn't see what happened back then. Is it Guan Xiao or not?"
The serpent said, "What the hell am I looking at? I was sealed in your left arm. I saw the world with your eyes. You're unconscious. I can't see or hear anything."
Xiang Nan fell silent.
It was not until a long time later that he said, "It will be dawn soon. Hurry up and leave. I will save you and leave this place."
The handsome man also gave up his search and said, "I can't leave the Veluriyam Sect yet. I haven't found what I'm looking for."
"You don't even want your life?" Xiang Nan said.
The handsome man said, "You won't be able to convince me. Don't waste any effort. For that thing, I really can't even give up my life."
"You can go back. I'm going back to the dungeon too."
The handsome man looked very disappointed. On his way back, he no longer looked like he was joking or being disrespectful. He only carried a strong sense of sadness.
When Xiang Nan returned to his residence, he discovered that there was a figure in the room.
His heart sank.
"I'm back." A faint voice came from the room. It was the Veluriyam Sect Master.
Xiang Nan's heart was uneasy. Why did this person suddenly come looking for him? He waited here for him for most of the night?
Could it be that he already knows that the consciousness that secretly spies on the Veluriyam Sect is mine?
Xiang Nan forcefully pushed open the door and smiled, "Sect Leader, is there something you need me for?"
The sect master smiled and said, "Is our Veluriyam Sect okay?"
This question was a little vague, and Xiang Nan nodded vaguely, "It's pretty."
Seeing that the sect master was touching his chest, Xiang Nan's heart lifted up.
He made preparations beforehand and fled as soon as the sect master made his move.
In the end, what the Sect Master took out was not a hidden weapon, but a fragment!
"This" Xiang Nan's eyes widened.
The Veluriyam Sect Master nodded, "As expected of Mr. Mo Ling's disciple. Your reaction shows that you recognize this thing."
"That's right, this is a fragment of the Netherworld Sword. Actually, I came to ask you for a favor."
"Alchemy?" Xiang Nan asked.
The Sect Master said, "Alchemy fell to the second place. I want you to help me make a formation."
"Tomorrow is the Armament Exhibition Conference. At that time, I hope you can help me build a detection array at the entrance of the exhibition."
"A large number of martial artists will bring their weapons over, and the formation I want is to be able to inspect their weapons for the same fragments."
"Oh" Xiang Nan suddenly realized that this was the intention of the Armament Exhibition Conference.
The Sect Master said, "I won't hide anything from you. That Nether Sword fragment has a strange characteristic. If it wasn't sealed, it would have entered some weapons on its own. Even the weapon holder wouldn't be able to detect it."
"This is a self-protection mechanism of the Nether Sword. Other than a few people, no one else knows about it."
Xiang Nan frowned, "You actually told me such a big secret? Don't say that you want to kill me to silence me afterwards."
The sect master laughed loudly, "Martial Nephew, don't worry. The Netherworld Sword is useless to profound practitioners. It's a treasure that our martial world is chasing."
"Besides, even if I let you know, it's fine. At most, you're searching the entire world for fragments. If you do this, you'll really help me a lot."
"In the future, I will find you and kill you. All of your fragments will be mine."
The Sect Master said this last sentence in a very light tone, but the flavor was not false at all.
Xiang Nan also laughed, "Forget it, there are so many experts looking for this kind of thing, I can't even avoid it, how could I rashly go and collect it?"
"Even if I get the Nether Sword, I won't be able to defeat you Heavenly Tribulation Realm experts. The disadvantages outweigh the advantages."
