The atmosphere is suffocating! The whole audience was silent! Everyone stared at the scene in front of them like a wooden chicken*.
*TL note: 呆若木鸡 (dāi ruò mù jī) Literally, it means ‘dumb like a wooden chicken’. This idiom is used to describe being stupefied due to fear or shock.
They couldn’t understand why Qin Xiaotian’s soul strength was so powerful.
In addition to their shock, especially those geniuses who think they are doing pretty well, they look so rubbish in front of Qin Xiaotian!
Gu Ling’er stared at everything in front of her with dull eyes. At first, her soul light reached twelve meters. She was somewhat smug about it.
I feel that my innate talent perception is amazing, and my soul is inherently stronger than others. Even if I lost to Qin Xiaotian the first two times, he might not be able to compete with me in the soul test. But now? She found out she was wrong!
Qin Xiaotian is not a human being at all. He is a monster. Comparing him to monsters is already an understatement.
Xiao Zhan’s expression was even more ugly. He always wanted to target Qin Xiaotian. Ever since he met him in Myriad Springs Tower, he has been looking at this brat very upsetly!
But the more he looked at him, the more he realized how awesome this brat is! And he’s getting more awesome every time!
By now, he even began to despair a bit.
“Could it be that Qin Xiaotian is really my destined nemesis?”
It’s not just Gu Ling’er and Xiao Zhan who began to despair. There is also Han Dong, Lei Qiandong, and others, all of them were boasting that they are peerless supreme talent.
But now it seems that they are just a frog at the bottom of the well!
They can only shake their head and smile. How can a firefly’s light compete with moonlight?
The expressions on everyone’s face are very complicated. However, Qin Xiaotian felt that he was in big trouble!
He was already restraining himself as much as possible, but his soul light still rushed straight into the sky, unable to stop at all!
It seems that with swords drawn and bows bent*, they will suppress him in the next second.
*TL note: 剑拔弩张 jiàn bá nǔ zhāng=literary with swords drawn and bows bent (idiom); fig. a state of mutual hostility; at daggers drawn.
“This little kid’s soul light has reached 3,000 meters! It’s even better than other Nascent Soul cultivators and me. How can such a powerful soul power appear on smell of mother’s milk not yet dried** child?! He must be possessed by the Green Robed Old Ancestor! This Eminence will take him down now!” Ouyang Xiaoyan’s eyes suddenly burst with murderous intent to destroying the heavens and extinguishing the earth.
**TL note: 乳臭未干 rǔ xiù wèi gān= smell of mother’s milk not yet dried; immature and inexperienced; still wet behind the ears
She circulated her Power of True Essence. And immediately, the endless power of heaven and earth was attracted. Even space trembled!
“Elder Ouyang, wait a minute!” Wang Tianba said anxiously.
“What?! What does Elder Wang have to say?”
“Elder Ouyang, in my opinion, it’s true that all disciples in this Dao Academy have a possibility to be possessed by the Primordial Spirit body of Green Robed Old Ancestor, but it can’t be this Qin Xiaotian!”
“You said it could not be him? How? How could not this little kid’s powerful soul line up with that of the Dividing Spirit Stage?” Ouyang Xiaoyan asked with a cold face.
“The situation is like this. When Qin Xiaotian took part in the Immortal Spirit Stairs examination before, he broke the Sword Immortal Chiyang’s record. His performance at that time was already extremely amazing. Senior Brother Zhou and I guessed that this child is most likely a reincarnated cultivator. At that time, the Green Robed Old Ancestor’s seal had not broken. Since this child is a reincarnated person, he must have been a powerful person in his previous life. Therefore, it is reasonable for him to have such a powerful soul!” Wang Tianba explained.
“That reason is not sufficient! Even if his performance on Immortal Spirit Stairs is amazing, it does not rule out that he is not possessed by the Green Robed Old Ancestor!”
“Of course, Wang also knows that this reason is not sufficient. Actually, I didn’t mean to hide this from you, but I’m actually very interested in this child. I have been paying attention to him since the Immortal Spirit Stairs examination. At the time when the seal was broken, what was this little guy doing? Yes, he was doing the Alchemist examination, and he passed the examination of 4th Grade Alchemist on the same day. He successfully refined a Breaking Realm Pill, which made him be directly promoted to a Guest Teacher by the Alchemy Department Director, Ximen Lie! Surely you know about what happens if someone were to be possessed by that demon’s Primordial Spirit. To seize the body of others is heaven-defying. After the possession, at least there will be severe damage to the vitality. And to successfully control the body of others, it takes a period of time to adapt to the new body. At least two to three geniuses can fully familiar with controlling. How could he immediately go to Alchemy Peak to do the Alchemist examination under such situation? And to actually passed the examination of 4th Grade Alchemist!”
When Wang Tianba said this, Ouyang Xiaoyan’s expression began to relax!
Zhou Yishan also nodded.
“Indeed. What I am getting from Qin Xiaotian, although his Power of Soul is extremely abnormal and almost reaches the Primordial Spirit strength of the Dividing Spirit supreme expert, his soul aura is still very different from Green Robed Old Ancestor’s Primordial Spirit! And on the other hand, since he is a reincarnated person, the possibility of being taken away is almost impossible. He is a reincarnation of such a powerful person, his soul would be naturally strong, and his control over his own body would even exceed more than Golden Core cultivators. There is absolutely no reason for someone to try to possess him!” Zhou Yishan also analyzed truthfully.
“The two elders’ analyses are very reasonable. It seems that this Qin Xiaotian is indeed not the one who has been taken over by the ancestor of the Green Robed Old Ancestor. But if it wasn’t him, who would it be? Could it be that the Green Robed Old Ancestor’s Primordial Spirit is unexpectedly stronger than we thought? It flew away from us?”
“This is really hard to say. After all, that demon was an almighty powerhouse in the Dividing Spirit Late Stage. I am afraid that there are some methods I can’t understand!”
The three powerful Nascent Soul showed a little helplessness.
In the eyes of others, they are the almighty powerhouse, but in front of the Dividing Spirit Stage’s presence, they are still weak like children.
The road to cultivation is long and endless.
In the eyes of the real almighty powerhouse, Nascent Soul Stage is only stepping out of the threshold of cultivation!
“Then, what should we do about Qin Xiaotian?” Ouyang Xiaoyanran asked suddenly.
“In my opinion, it’s better to associate with him. Just talk with his peers. This time period is not suitable for extravagance. Demon Beast Tide once every 50 years is coming soon. The Nine States Continent will be in a precarious situation. If we can form a good relationship with the reincarnated powerhouse, maybe he can protect our Immortal Spirit Dao Academy.”
“What Senior Brother Zhou said is quite true!”
The moment Nascent Soul supreme experts locked in Qin Xiaotian, he had already prepared for the worst. He even intended to escape desperately!
But at this moment, that storm-like pressure suddenly disappeared!
It’s like he was planning to face a level 50 typhoon, but suddenly realized that it was just a breeze.
He felt loss!
Qin Xiaotian breathed a sigh of relief.
This Nascent Soul powerhouses have some reasonable IQ. At least they can distinguish the difference between him and Green Robed Old Ancestor’s soul.
