The ranking of the martial arts world had always been chaotic, so everyone didn't care too much about seniority.
For example, Zhang Haoran was the second head of the Haoran Sect. In terms of seniority, he was Xu Caiyue's master. As for Zhang Haoran, he was on par with the senior monks of the Teng generation. Actually, Xiang Nan should call him Grand Master Tengjing .
However, Xiang Nan joined Zhang Haoran and became Tengjing 's martial nephew.
It was mainly because the martial artists had lived for too long that their seniority was particularly chaotic.
The man rolled his eyes. He was still doubtful of Xiang Nan's words. He was also puzzled. Perhaps what Xiang Nan said was true. Otherwise, how could this brat Xiang Nan learn such a martial skill like the Tribulation-free Finger?
However, the man thought for a moment and laughed, "Even if you really are Tengjing 's Martial Nephew, it doesn't matter. I'll kill you here without anyone noticing. I'm sure that Tengjing won't suspect me."
"You and I have no grievances, why did you kill me?" Xiang Nanqi said.
The goatee said, "Haha, killing you isn't necessarily killing you right now. You have to tell me the incantation of the Finger of Tribulation. Perhaps I will kindly let you live."
"That can't be." Xiang Nan shook his head. He was deliberately stalling for time.
Taking advantage of this time, Xiang Nan's cultivation had already recovered from the ninth level of the Xiantian realm to the first level of the Origin Reversion realm.
"That's not up to you!" The goatee's body trembled and surging Yuan Qi spread out. It turned into a huge Yuan Qi palm in the sky and was about to capture Xiang Nan.
Xiang Nan took a step back, his fingers clasped together, and a ten-meter-long Buddha Standing phantom appeared!
The goatee was so frightened that he hurriedly fled. With a whoosh, his body turned into a black shadow and swiftly swam through the forest.
Xiang Nan said, "If you want to kill me, you only need to use one move. However, if I point at you with all my might, you will also lose your cultivation realm."
"Killing me won't do you any good, but you can't afford to lose a realm."
Apart from the Feiyun Temple and the The Profound Sky Sect , no one else knew the true power of the Tribulation-free Finger. The goatee was truly afraid and did not dare to show itself easily.
Xiang Nan had his Yuan Qi and began to send it to the Dream butterfly .
The goatee kept swimming in the woods, but when he saw that Xiang Nan was no longer attacking, he stopped and said, "Little friend, we have something to discuss. Why do we have to make a scene of mutual destruction?"
"I think your little lover is poisoned. How about resting in my mansion? I have countless miraculous medicines there."
Xiang Nan thought for a moment and agreed. No matter how bad the situation was, could it be worse than now?
The goatee was overjoyed and hurriedly said, "I am Dong Wu Shang, nicknamed Heavenly Fiend Black Forest."
"Junior Xiang Bei." Xiang Nan said.
"Please!" The goatee released a strand of Yuan Qi, sweeping Xiang Nan and Dream butterfly into the sky.
While flying in the sky, Dong Wu Shang comforted Xiang Nan and said, "Little friend Xiang, please rest assured. I will not plot against you. I will not obtain the incantation of the Tribulation Finger even if I kill you. However, I have something to ask of you. Let's talk slowly after we return."
Dong Wu Shang 's mansion was further west, and he had already reached the hinterland of the Western Regions, in a boundless black forest.
After landing on the ground, Xiang Nan looked around and said, "I didn't expect that there would be such a paradise in this kind of place. Senior Dong is very elegant."
Dong Wu Shang laughed loudly and said, "It's our guest. Please come in!"
The garden of Dong Wu Shang 's mansion was unique. There were three floors of courtyards in front and behind. There were servants with shackles on their feet everywhere. When these people saw Dong Wu Shang , their entire bodies trembled in fear.
However, the buildings here were very complicated. Xiang Nan peeked at them with his lightning-like eyes and discovered that there were actually seven formations hidden in the entire mansion.
If someone who was not proficient in formations trespassed without permission, the result would probably be very miserable.
Dong Wu Shang brought Xiang Nan to a huge building, and a large hall was facing him.
There were two rows of seats in the hall. There were already about twenty young people sitting on the chairs on both sides of the hall. Each of them was at the fourth and fifth level of Origin Return. They were around twenty years old. Having such a high level of talent at such a young age could be considered to be extremely talented.
However, these people were all tied up in chairs. When they saw Dong Wu Shang return, their faces revealed anger.
"Little friend Xiang, please take a seat!" Dong Wu Shang led Xiang Nan directly to the front seat.
After Dong Wu Shang landed on the main seat, he said to the young martial artists, "How is it? Do you understand? Do you want to hand over the Devil Sea Token or not?"
The young martial artists were furious and cursed.
Dong Wu Shang laughed, "Don't think that you can deceive me. One of you must have the Devil Sea Token ! Tell me where the Devil Sea Token is hidden, and I'll release all of you. Otherwise … hehe."
"Cut the crap!" A young martial artist said angrily, "If I give you the Devil Sea Token , will you be willing to let us go? Do you really think we are idiots?"
Dong Wu Shang jumped up like a roc. He floated away, and his right nail suddenly became extremely sharp, piercing through the young martial artist's head.
The martial artist's entire body spasmed, and he was sucked into a dried corpse at a speed visible to the naked eye!
As for Dong Wu Shang, he flipped his palm, and a ball of green light was floating in his palm. The ball of light was full of vitality, and it actually pulled out the vitality of the young martial artist!
Seeing this, Xiang Nan's heart sank.
Just what kind of evil path was this Dong Wu Shang practicing? The cultivation method he practiced was actually so vicious.
When the others saw this scene, their faces turned pale with fear.
"Little friend Xiang, your little lover is in a bad situation. This Light of Life will be given to you as a greeting gift. After your little lover swallows it, it will benefit you endlessly," Dong Wu Shang said with a smile.
Xiang Nan was indeed moved, but when he thought of the origin of the Light of Life, he shook his head and refused, "Thank you, Senior, for your kindness, but let's forget it."
Dong Wu Shang sneered and snorted, "You don't want this."
"Lin Lin! Come."
As soon as he finished speaking, the sound of walking came from the screen behind the hall. Then, a handsome and extraordinary man turned out.
This person was tall and handsome, but his face was extremely pale. He looked like a sick man and could die at any moment.
"Father." The man shouted.
A gentle light flashed through Dong Wu Shang 's eyes and he said, "Good child, eat quickly."
The man took the Light of Life and used his mouth to suck the green ball of light into his mouth. Then, a flush appeared on his pale and frightening face.
"Lin Lin, let me introduce you." Dong Wu Shang pointed at Xiang Nan and said, "This is a good friend invited for my father. He is the martial nephew of Elder Tengjing , the host of Fei Long Yuan."
"Oh?" The man was slightly shocked, but he looked a little afraid. However, he still cupped his fists at Xiang Nan and said, "Brother Xiang."
Xiang Nan nodded, "Brother Dong."
"Hahahaha!" On both sides of the seats, a young martial artist laughed loudly, "The disciples of the secular sects of the dignified Feiyun Temple actually mixed up with the Heavenly Fiend of the Black Forest. They are truly laughing to death."
