Peerless Battle Spirit Chapter 1308
Chapter 1308 The Hunt Begins
An indescribable emotion blossomed in Qin Nan's heart when he heard the words.
In other words, the only person she could trust and rely on in the entire Canglan Continent was him.
If he were gone, she would be left alone in this world.
"You...you haven't told us who you are."
Qin Nan fell silent for a moment before asking slowly.
He had to learn Bai Ling'er's identity first.
After all, the copper mirror had mentioned that Jiang Bilan would completely lose her consciousness when she turned into the Death Crystal.
It was rather suspicious that this Bai Ling'er had appeared out of nowhere.
"I have the same question too. I don't know where I come from, but I know that my master is Jiang Bilan. I must protect her so that she can continue on with her cultivation."
Bai Ling'er wore a troubled expression.
It was obvious that she had been troubled by the same question for a long time.
"Qin Nan, no need to be suspicious, she's speaking the truth."
Suddenly, an icy voice appeared in Qin Nan's Divine Sense.
The voice belonged to none other than the mysterious woman in the copper mirror.
Qin Nan wore an astonished expression.
The mysterious woman in the copper mirror had always been absent. Even when he was achieving the Martial Monarch Realm on his own, she had only shown up for a while and had then left again.
Normally, she would not speak a word.
"This Death Crystal has obtained a pure primary life force, which has merged with her will of death, resulting in a magical change, hence this Bai Ling'er is here."
The copper mirror ignored Qin Nan's astonishment and spoke coldly.
"Obtained a pure primary life force?"
Qin Nan's eyes flickered.
Everything made more sense now with that explanation.
The primary life force was most likely a fortunate encounter that the Death Crystal had stumbled onto in the rift.
Qin Nan let out a relieved sigh and withdrew the monarch intent in his body.
Anything was fine as long as the Death Crystal was unharmed.
He was glad to hear that the Death Crystal had found some fortunate encounter which benefited itself.
"I shall look for Old Man Taia, I might need his help to bring the Death Crystal back to the Canglan Continent."
Qin Nan murmured and made up his mind.
It was impossible to bring anything in the Abstruse God Space back to reality.
The reason being that their flesh was formed by their cultivation will; it was not their true flesh.
"It's unnecessary to bring it out of the Abstruse God Space, let her stay here."
The mysterious woman of the copper mirror said coldly as if she could read Qin Nan's mind.
"Mm? Why is that?"
Qin Nan was startled, who then blurted out.
"There's a forbidden place here in the Abstruse God Space that is perfect for her, and also for you to cultivate in seclusion too. In a month’s time, I'll open the forbidden place for you."
The mysterious woman said in a rather straightforward manner.
She already knew that Qin Nan was there in the Abstruse God Space.
However, as she was currently making her way to Canglan Continent from the Nine Heavens, she was not in the mood to help Qin Nan by opening forbidden places.
However, she was intrigued when she found out that the Death Crystal had undergone some unexpected change.
As such, she was willing to help Jiang Bilan and Qin Nan, which could be considered planting a seed in advance.
Whether the seed could grow in a towering tree in the future was none of her business.
"There's a place like that? Wait, why must it be in a month? Can't you open it now? Won't the Death Crystal be affected if we simply leave it here in the Abstruse God Space for a month?"
Qin Nan's eyes glistened before a frown replaced it on his face.
"The power left in the copper mirror is running out, I'll need time to replenish it. Besides, the Death Crystal has undergone this unexpected change, so it's no longer the same as before. A month won't bring any harm to it. As for the rest, I'll leave it to you."
The mysterious woman seemed to be annoyed that Qin Nan was asking so many questions. After finishing the sentence, the copper mirror fell silent as usual.
"I see, I guess it's fine to wait a month before heading to the forbidden place."
Qin Nan reached a conclusion after a slight ponder.
The mysterious woman in the copper mirror must have spent some time in the Abstruse God Space when she was a Martial Monarch in the past, as she seemed extremely familiar with this place.
The forbidden place that she had offered to open up must be quite extraordinary.
"Qin Nan, what's going on? Should I use some extreme measures to let this little girl tell us everything..."
Sima Kong suggested when he saw that Qin Nan had remained silent for some time.
The little girl had dared to lie to them. He could not wait to teach her a lesson.
"A mere Martial Progenitor is threatening me? Fatty, do you believe that I can reduce your lifespan by a hundred years?"
Bai Ling'er did not panic. She waved her hand, gathering the will of death.
"A hundred years of my life span? Holy shit, I'm warning you, don't do anything ruthless..."
Sima Kong began to panic instantly.
What kind of trap is this? This Bai Ling'er seemed like a twelve-year-old and he could not sense a powerful aura from her presence. How had she mastered such terrifying power?
"Bai Ling'er, I know who you are now. You will continue to protect Jiang Bilan, is that fine?"
The cold look in Qin Nan's gaze toward Bai Ling'er had disappeared.
"Of course, she's my master."
Bai Ling'er raised her head and said without hesitation.
"Mm, for the following month, you'll be staying in my Sumeru Ring. In a month’s time, we'll head to a forbidden place somewhere in this Abstruse God Space. The place is perfect for your master."
Qin Nan said.
"Mm, Ling'er understands."
Bai Ling'er nodded without asking anything further. She flew into Qin Nan's Sumeru Ring with the Death Crystal.
Her master had told her that when she met the person that could hold the Death Crystal, she had to listen to whatever he said.
"Should we go look for some Abstruse God Pieces?"
Qin Nan turned to Sima Kong.
Since he had to wait for a month, he could use the time to collect some Abstruse God Pieces.
"I've got a better idea, those nine assholes are still here in the Abstruse God Space, not far from where we are..."
Sima Kong laughed grimly.
"Mm? You know where they are?"
Qin Nan's eyes emitted a shocking flicker.
"Of course, who do you think I am? I already marked them with the talismans left by the old Emperor of Thieves. Whenever they enter the Abstruse God Space, I'll know exactly where they are."
Sima Kong wore his usual confident expression.
"I can bring you to them, but...on one condition."
Sima Kong's eyes flickered with a cunning look.
