"Where is the little bird!" Xiang Nan was panting and asked with a cold face.
Zhang Haiyue was almost half-dead. He didn't have an immortal body. The severe injuries he had suffered before and after made him wander on the verge of death.
Zhang Haiyue gasped for breath and said, "Hey, are you afraid?"
Xiang Nan didn't care about Zhang Haiyue's life or death at all. Even if he died, Xiang Nan could still force people from other sects to find the little bird's whereabouts.
The problem was that Xiang Nan could not kill Zhang Haiyue!
With his fifth level Divine Martial Dream Physique and Vermillion Bird Divine Pill's infinite ability to revive by bathing in fire, he could only match up to Martial Sage Zhang Haiyue.
As long as he could reach another realm! With one more layer, Xiang Nan would have been able to kill Zhang Haiyue countless times.
However, it was precisely this difference in cultivation realm that made it impossible for Xiang Nan to succeed.
"Hand over the little bird." Xiang Nan said.
Zhang Haiyue laughed loudly, "You're delusional! Why are you asking me for anything?"
"Why?" Xiang Nan gritted his teeth and said, "Are you out of your mind? Why would you rather die than hand over the little bird? It clearly has no effect on you!"
"There is clearly no hatred between you and me! You have eaten until you're full, so you have to go against me."
Zhang Haiyue smiled sinisterly and said, "People from my Nature Sect never lower their heads!"
"If I do, then I will do it. There is no regret! Since I have already started this path, I will walk this path to the end!"
Xiang Nan said in a deep voice, "If you refuse to lower your head, I will beat you until you lower your head!"
Xiang Nan had already secretly circulated his Dream Dao, preparing to forcefully descend.
"Kid Xiang Nan, don't act recklessly!" The eight-eyed serpent said, "Dream Dao can only be used once a day. No one knows what the consequences will be if you forcefully use it a second time."
However, Xiang Nan was no longer able to control that much. He insisted on descending onto the Dream Body, and the Dream Dao had already begun to circulate twice.
At this moment, a strong light suddenly flew over from the horizon.
Both Xiang Nan and Zhang Haiyue felt their hearts tremble. At the same time, they looked at the bright light. No one was sure if the person in the light was an enemy or a friend.
However, Xiang Nan was the first to recognize the fluctuations of the aura. His expression became even colder as he gritted his teeth and said, "Black Green Bamboo!"
The bright light suddenly hung beside Xiang Nan and Zhang Haiyue.
Zhang Haiyue looked at it and asked curiously, "Bai Clan's Mysterious Green Bamboo? Aren't you doing some kind of martial arts competition? Why are you meddling in my affairs?"
The Nature Sect had spies all over the world, and they could be said to know the situation of Xuan Qingzhu like the back of their hand.
But when he saw Xuan Qingzhu again, Xiang Nan's heart sank even more. This Xuan Qingzhu had actually reached Martial Saint Level 1!
Xiang Nan did not know what had happened to her, nor did he know that Xuan Qingzhu had already combined with Bai Wudao.
"It really is you." Xuan Qingzhu ignored Zhang Haiyue and stared at Xiang Nan with her beautiful eyes. "I knew it would be you."
Xiang Nan sighed. He thought to himself that today would be a very unlucky day.
Xuan Qingzhu, who possessed the Heavenly Spirit Five Meridians, was much stronger than Zhang Haiyue. The two of them were not on the same level at all.
"I know you want to kill me." On the contrary, Xiang Nan became calm and relieved. After two lives, he was still unable to escape his fate and would still die at Xuan Qingzhu's hands.
A cold light flashed in Xiang Nan's eyes as he said, "Before you kill me, can you give me some time to kill this bastard from the Nature Sect?"
Zhang Haiyue was stunned for a moment, then he was overjoyed and said to Xuan Qingzhu, "Didn't your Bai Clan always chase after this traitor?"
"Now is a great opportunity. You and I will work together to kill this traitor!"
Zhang Haiyue didn't know that Xiang Nan's realm had decreased because he had no choice but to. He thought that Xiang Nan didn't dare to kill him, which was why he relaxed his realm. He was still vigilant towards Xiang Nan.
Xuan Qingzhu still didn't look at Zhang Haiyue. He only stared fixedly at Xiang Nan's eyes, as if he wanted to find a hint of familiarity in Bai Muchen's eyes.
Unfortunately, she couldn't find it.
Xiang Nan was no longer the carefree Bai Muchen. Now, Xiang Nan was a true warrior.
"Do you know why my cultivation has been growing so slowly over the years?" Xuan Qingzhu suddenly said this to Xiang Nan.
Xiang Nan did not speak.
Xuan Qingzhu said, "I have never lied to you. In the past, I truly loved you. I am not even sure if this love has completely disappeared."
Xiang Nan remained silent.
Xuan Qingzhu continued, "What, you don't even have the interest to talk to me? Do you hate me so much? In your heart, you don't even have the slightest bit of nostalgia for me anymore?"
"Back then, you and I were childhood sweethearts. We …"
"Shut up." Xiang Nan interrupted her coldly and said, "Is it meaningful to say this now?"
"If you want to kill or cut, do as you please. Don't pretend here."
A moment of sadness flashed through Xuan Qingzhu's eyes, but that sadness was immediately replaced by determination.
"No matter how much you hate me, I'm sure that you're the only man I've ever truly loved, at least from the past until the future. At this moment, my feelings for you haven't diminished," she said.
"But I don't regret it. If you give me another chance, I will still choose to kill you."
Xiang Nan sneered and said, "I am also very sure of this. In this world, few women are more beautiful than you, and there are more fierce women than you."
"But no woman's heart is colder than yours."
Xuan Qingzhu said, "You don't have to mock me like this. I won't kill you today. I will let you go."
Xiang Nan laughed loudly, "You came here specifically to tell me that you came here to let me off?"
"Xuan Qingzhu, is it still interesting to continue acting like this? Performing in front of me?"
Xuan Qingzhu's expression turned ugly and he said, "I'm not doing this for you! I'm doing this for myself!"
"I loved you before, but I also killed you. I violated my Dao Heart, which made it difficult for me to reach the Martial Dao realm after I possessed the five Heavenly Spiritual Meridians!"
"Even though I have told myself countless times that I killed you to achieve my martial dao, this Heart Demon has always been buried deep in my Dao Heart. Every day, it hinders me."
"That's your retribution." Xiang Nan said.
Xuan Qingzhu took a deep breath and said, "If possible, I will kill you today without hesitation, just like before."
"But what I owe you, I have to pay it back. Only in this way can I rise to a higher level and become my Dao Heart."
"I don't want the Martial Sage realm, I want the Heavenly Tribulation!"
"I don't want to live under someone's feet, I want to rule this world! I want to become the second Bai Wuya!"
Xuan Qingzhu's emotions started to fluctuate. She shouted at Xiang Nan, "Do you think I came here to obey the Bai Clan's orders?"
"Do you think that I entered this world by myself just to work for the Bai Clan's damn clan?"
"No!" Xuan Qingzhu gritted his teeth, his face ashen, "I want everything!"
At this point, Xuan Qingzhu's voice quickly calmed down, as if the excited woman just now wasn't her.
She calmed down and said to Xiang Nan, "You go. I owe you a life. Let you go again today. From now on, we will not owe each other anything."
"You will no longer be my Heart Demon, and no one will be able to stop me from becoming stronger."
