From this matter, Xiang Nan analyzed two pieces of related information.
First of all, Xuan Qingzhu's mission in the Western Emperor Continent had been completely completed. This Western Border was her last stop. She should have secretly dealt with the top young people in the Western Emperor Continent.
Another thing was that Bai He was determined to destroy the Western Emperor.
Once the Northern Emperor defeated the Western Emperor, the remnants of the Western Emperor would flee and hide in a small corner. As long as their descendants still had exceptionally talented young people, as long as they were able to recover their strength, they would have a chance to rise again.
However, the youths that Xuan Qingzhu had dealt with were practically the only way for the Western Emperor to retreat.
In this tough battle, the Western Emperor had to fight as well, and if he didn't fight, he had to fight as well.
But why could the Western Emperor tolerate Xuan Qingzhu messing around in his territory?
It was still the same problem, called information blockade.
The black tower could kill all the people involved. Even now, the Western Emperor still did not know what had happened.
In this world of martial artists, blocking information was a very terrifying thing. He would make a faction blind.
At the same time, Xiang Nan had reason to believe that this matter could not be separated from the Nature Sect. Only a power like the Nature Sect could assist Xuan Qingzhu in accomplishing this feat in the shortest amount of time, less than a month.
The serpent said, "Should we inform the Western Emperor?"
Xiang Nan shook his head, "No need. The Southern Emperor already knows about the black tower from me. If he really wants to help the Western Emperor, he will inform the Western Emperor."
"If he doesn't want to protect the Western Emperor, then even if I tell him, the Southern Emperor will most likely defect and fight back against the Western Emperor. At that time, the Western Emperor will be doomed."
If the Southern Emperor helped, Xiang Nan didn't need to go. If the Southern Emperor didn't help, it would be useless for Xiang Nan to go. He didn't need to go either.
"Do you feel Zhang Haiyue's aura?" The big snake said.
Xiang Nan shook his head, "They are already on guard. I'm afraid they have concealed their aura now. They are hidden in the shadows, so they can only slowly search for them."
Xiang Nan went to the small courtyard again.
According to what Xiang Nan had heard the night before, the mysterious black-robed man and Zhang Haiyue had agreed to meet again one night later.
However, Zhang Haiyue was seriously injured. In order to treat his injuries, he shouldn't be able to attend to the appointment in time, so the appointment would be postponed.
However, there was no one in the small courtyard, not even the cage.
"Did you run away?" "Even if Zhang Haiyue can't come by himself, he can still send his subordinates over," the serpent said.
Xiang Nan shook his head, "Judging from Zhang Haiyue's performance, he is a person who values merit greatly. If he wants to do something big, he will definitely do it personally. He will never hand over the merit to anyone else to take over."
That Zhang Haiyue regarded merit as everything, and from the two brief contacts between Xiang Nan and him, he was able to display it incisively and vividly.
Xiang Nan touched the ground with one hand and said, "The Nature Sect has a very effective way of hiding. They can hide their aura fluctuations and even their vitality fluctuations."
The serpent said, "Of course. Otherwise, how would they sneak attack the forces under the Four Emperors? This kind of concealment method is the foundation for them to do all major things."
"But this is bad. This city is neither big nor small. If you investigate one building at a time, I'm afraid you won't be able to complete it in three to five months."
"Back then, how did you know that handsome man didn't belong to the human race?" Xiang Nan suddenly asked this question. He was still touching the ground.
The serpent said, "Sense of smell. Our demon race has a very strong sense of smell. We can smell the scent of human blood."
"However, I can't cultivate Zhang Haiyue's smell. He's hidden. Didn't you already know?"
Xiang Nan nodded thoughtfully and said, "But you have forgotten one thing. Natural sects can conceal themselves, but the humans in the cages do not have the ability to do so."
"The people of the Nature Sect should not have thought of this either."
"That's right!" The eight-eyed snake said happily, "Even I didn't expect it! Let this daddy smell it!"
Xiang Nan extended his left arm to the surface of the ground.
During the battle that night, Xiang Nan and Zhang Haiyue only fought briefly in the courtyard. Most of the battles took place in the distant sky, but the shockwaves caused by those brief battles also harmed some of the humans in the cages.
Their blood had already seeped into the soil. The eight-eyed serpent sniffed and immediately locked onto the target.
"They're still here! They're in the south of the city!"
Xiang Nan narrowed his eyes and thought to himself that what he had guessed was indeed correct. Zhang Haiyue had not left yet!
Without any hesitation, he immediately acted.
Xiang Nan followed the direction of the serpent and quickly arrived at the south of the city, locking onto the city lord's mansion.
This city was bordered by the Demon Emperor Sea, and its military strength was very strong. The City Lord's Mansion could be said to be heavily defended.
However, ordinary human soldiers no longer posed a threat to Xiang Nan. Their role was still to provide early warning. Once the demon race attacked, they could immediately report to the Western Emperor.
Most of the soldiers in the vicinity of the City Lord's Mansion weren't physically strong. Instead, they were slightly skinny and robust warriors. This proved Xiang Nan's conjecture.
They did not treat this place as their first defense, but abandoned it immediately when the demons invaded.
"There are many." The eight-eyed serpent said, "There are many five-meridian martial artists in the City Lord's Mansion. The number is already close to a thousand. There are about 980 to 990 of them."
The guards at the entrance were very alert. They saw that Xiang Nan had always been standing across the street. From the looks of it, two guards walked over and asked.
These were the first words the two guards said, and then a guard reached out to grab the knife on Xiang Nan's back.
Another guard pressed his right hand on the hilt of his sword and stared at Xiang Nan, "What are you doing? Identity!"
Xiang Nan didn't even look at the two of them. He was always focused on searching for Zhang Haiyue.
However, even at such a close distance, Zhang Haiyue's exact location could not be found.
That brat was already like a frightened bird. Xiang Nan was not sure if today was the day when Zhang Haiyue and the black-robed man met. According to the big snake, the number of five-meridian martial artists was still less than a thousand.
If Zhang Haiyue hadn't come today, Zhang Haiyue would have probably escaped if he had alerted him.
Whether Zhang Haiyue was inside or not was the biggest problem.
Entering or not.
"Still can't smell it." Xiang Nan asked in his heart.
"I can't confirm Zhang Haiyue's whereabouts, but I'm afraid this is our only chance."
If he didn't attack today, Zhang Haiyue would run tomorrow. If he attacked today and he wasn't here, he would run when he heard the wind.
Xiang Nan suddenly thought of that handsome man.
"I'm here to assassinate the City Lord," he said to the two guards.
The two guards were stunned. One of them was shocked, "How dare you! Come on, capture him!"
These two guards were both Heaven Origin realm martial artists, so they were not qualified to probe Xiang Nan's strength.
Dozens of guards rushed forward to surround Xiang Nan, and more than a dozen sharp swords were placed on Xiang Nan's neck, the edges of the swords forming a circle.
