Meeting the Southern Emperor was much quicker than Xiang Nan had imagined. That evening, he was kidnapped by the Nature Sect and summoned by the Southern Emperor in the early morning of the next day.
The Veluriyam Sect Master personally brought Xiang Nan to see the Southern Emperor, but during this process, Xiang Nan was unconscious.
The four emperors' identities made their residences very secret.
For example, Beihuang Baihe lived on the back of a giant beast that roamed the world at any time. When necessary, the giant beast could even penetrate space and hide in the endless void.
When Xiang Nan woke up, he discovered that he was already in a spacious palace.
There were only two people in the palace. One was Xiang Nan, who was lying on the cold ground of the hall, while the other was a man who was sitting high up in the hall, hiding in the shadows.
The man's seat was large enough to accommodate more than a dozen children playing on it. There were only three themed patterns on the entire seat, which were three suns.
Xiang Nan already knew who he was facing.
He stood up, tidied his clothes, straightened his body, and said, "I hope to send a message through the Southern Emperor."
The Southern Emperor in the shadows laughed. His voice was very strange and unrecognizable.
When you hear a person's voice, you will remember that voice, but this memory effect does not exist in the Southern Emperor's body.
Xiang Nan heard the voice of the Southern Emperor, but if he recalled it carefully, he would find that he could not remember it at all. It was as if he had heard the voice of the Southern Emperor one moment ago. In the next moment, there was an invisible power that erased the memories in Xiang Nan's mind.
"You are the most straightforward person I have ever seen besides the Veluriyam Sect Master." The Southern Emperor said, "Others will be flattered if they don't panic when they see me. Very few people like you ask for it straightforwardly."
Xiang Nan said, "To be cautious in front of someone like you is just embarrassing. I hope that this unnecessary link can be avoided."
The Southern Emperor said, "The First Weaponry Master is indeed different from the others. Then, what kind of information do you want to release, what scale do you want to release, and what kind of bargaining chips do you want to use in exchange?"
"I want to say something," Xiang Nan said. "I hope to be heard by all the humans in the world."
"What's the price?" The Southern Emperor said.
Xiang Nan said, "I know of a plan of the Bai Clan, or rather, a certain step in a plan."
"Tell me." The Southern Emperor was very interested.
Xiang Nan said, "Help me release the news first. Of course, you don't have to worry that I will go back on my word. If you discover that the information I gave you is not important, you can kill me at any time. This will not be a loss to you."
"You don't trust me." The Southern Emperor said with interest.
"I don't trust anyone," Xiang Nan nodded.
The Southern Emperor floated over from his seat, but the strange thing was that the shadow that had been enveloping him had actually floated over as well.
This was a man who was six meters tall. He stood in front of Xiang Nan like a lion looking down at a voles.
Xiang Nan could not clearly see the appearance of the Southern Emperor. He could only use the human silhouette in the shadows to distinguish the gender and height of the Southern Emperor.
"Put your palm in my hand. Everyone will hear what you say next." The Southern Emperor said indifferently as he stretched out his right hand and raised his palm.
Xiang Nan covered his right hand as well, and the palms of the two collided.
Immediately after, an endless power rose from within the Southern Emperor's body. That power pierced through the hall, pierced through the clouds, and reached an unimaginable height.
In the end, this power turned into a sea of fire.
That day, all the humans in the world saw the sky turn fiery red.
"Now, you can say it." The Southern Emperor said.
Xiang Nan took a deep breath. After considering the words, he said, "I am Xiang Nan."
This first sentence spread throughout the world.
Everyone in the Bai Clan looked up at the sky.
Bai He stood on the top of the mountain with his hands behind his back. He looked at the vast red sky and muttered to himself, "Southern Emperor."
In the distant Endless Forest, Little Prince and the others raised their heads.
In a dark corner, Guan Xiao, who was walking shallowly and deeply in the sea of blood, also raised her head.
On the Western Emperor Continent, Xuan Qingzhu, who had just taken out the Exquisite Black Tower and was smiling at many suitors, also looked up at the sky with a change in expression.
In the Veluriyam Sect's dungeon, the handsome man looked at the pitch-black roof thoughtfully.
Xiang Nan's first sentence was a very straightforward self-introduction. He didn't have any unnecessary identity descriptions, but only announced his name.
Then, Xiang Nan's voice sounded again.
"In the Southern Emperor Continent's Veluriyam Sect, I lost something more important to me than my life."
"All along, I have always been kind to the whole world and humanity."
"Even when I face enemies, I always remember that I am a true human with bottom lines and moral support."
"Even when I drop my butcher's knife and kill people, I will let my enemies die with dignity. I will not use seemingly crazy methods to kill people with excitement and excitement."
"Every death in my hands adds a sense of guilt and burden to me."
"Perhaps … it's really because I'm too merciful. The Nature Sect, you don't know what the things you've taken away mean to me."
"But I will let you see what you have released from me."
"The world will abide by the agreement between humanity and the Nature Sect. However, I will not abide by this agreement. I am neither a representative of an empire nor a member of an organization. I will only officially declare war on behalf of myself against the Nature Sect."
"I'll give you three days to return what you took from me. I'll wait on the south bank of the Endless Forest. With your abilities, you should be able to find me."
"If I don't see what I want in three days, then …"
Xiang Nan lowered his eyes, his eyes flickering with an unprecedented evil flame.
"Then … you have to accept it. It comes from my anger."
When Xiang Nan finished speaking, almost everyone in the world laughed.
One person, one person alone, declared war on the entire Nature Sect.
After Xiang Nan withdrew his right hand, the Southern Emperor nodded and said, "I have fulfilled your crazy request. Now tell me what you can give me."
Xiang Nan said, "The Bai Clan has created a kind of Origin Pill. You should already know that the Veluriyam Sect has also obtained this kind of pill."
The Southern Emperor nodded, "Continue."
Xiang Nan said, "The quality of this pill can be very high or very low. Let's talk about the extremely high quality Origin Pills first."
"All human martial artists know how to awaken talent. However, multiple awakening of talent will reduce their talent. Origin pills can replenish the consumption of this talent and make the awakening of talent no longer bear a high price."
"It's even possible that consuming Origin Pills for a long period of time will cause a change in one's innate talent, either by adding a new innate attribute, or by directly increasing one's innate talent level."
The Southern Emperor nodded, "Continue."
"However, this is not the most terrifying thing. The most terrifying thing is that a low-grade Origin Pill. To a martial artist, this kind of pill is like pouring dirty copper into pure gold," Xiang Nan said.
"The Bai Clan uses low-grade Origin Pills to release formations in the black tower. They can form a type of innate shock wave. Any martial artist who is struck by this kind of shock wave will have their innate talent reduced instantly, causing their innate talent to be unable to withstand the level of their martial skills and self-destruct on the spot."
