In the summer, Nan did not run away.


How could he, who was seriously injured and crippled, outrun Ye Xuan?


In the corner of the underground parking lot, Xia Nan had already lost his former splendor from when he was in the Star Sea. He was covered in wounds and footprints. His head was lowered, and he didn't dare meet Ye Xuan's gaze.


"Tiannan, what happened?" How did it become like this? "


Ye Xuan grabbed Xia Nan's shoulder as he spoke in concern.


However, Xia Nan still kept his head down, not saying a word.


Seeing this, Ye Xuan didn't say anything more. He grabbed Xia Nan's hand and placed it on Xia Nan's wrist to feel his pulse.


When Ye Xuan felt the situation in Xia Nan's body, his expression instantly became unsightly. His eyes flickered with a cold light and dense killing intent was released from his body. A terrifying aura uncontrollably spread out from his body.


In the summer Nan was ruined.


Not only had his meridians been severed, even his dantian had been destroyed by someone, completely turning him into a cripple.


He's no longer the same Xia Nan who was able to do whatever he wanted with Ye Xuan.


He was only a cripple that had been abandoned and humiliated.


"Who did it?"


A furious voice came out of Ye Xuan's mouth.


Xia Nan lowered her head and did not answer.


"F * ck!"


Ye Xuan cursed angrily as he turned around and walked towards the death arena, filled with rage.


Summer South was the first friend he had made on his trip to the Star Sea, and also his acknowledged brother.


Now that he'd been crippled into a cripple, how could Ye Xuan not be angry?


"Ya ya ya …."


However, before Ye Xuan could even take two steps forward, he was firmly grabbed by Xia Nan's hand, causing a crackling sound to ring out from his mouth.


"Your throat …"


Seeing Xia Nan tightly grab onto his arm and listening to the sound coming from his mouth, Ye Xuan was suddenly stunned.


"Ya ya ya …."


As Xia Nan spoke, he extended his palm...


His throat had been poisoned.


"Damn it!"


Ye Xuan's anger grew even stronger. He wanted to drag Xia Nan to the death arena to seek justice and get revenge for him, but Xia Nan held his hand tightly and shook his head.


"Rustle, rustle, rustle …"


At this moment, the rustling of footsteps could be heard. Li Jun, who was behind him, wanted to catch up to him at this moment …


Xia Nan was slightly stunned when he saw Li Xuan walk over, then quickly turned around and pulled Ye Xuan away.


"Li Jun thought, I have to leave first! "Let's talk about it after we return to the hotel..."


Ye Xuan greeted Li Xiang before hurriedly leaving with Xia Nan.


From his performance just now, it was obvious that he wanted to get to know Li Jun, and he didn't want Li Jun to see him in such a sorry state.


An hour later, Ye Xuan brought Xia Nan back to the hotel.


He first told Xia Nan to take a bath, change his clothes, and wait for him in the hotel. Then he hurried over to the black market to buy some precious herbs.


When Ye Xuan returned to the hotel, perhaps it was because Xia Nan was too tired from his injuries, Ye Xuan sat on the living room's sofa and fell asleep.


After washing up and changing into a new set of clothes, he was still somewhat handsome. However, his body now gave off a desolate and ancient feeling.


Ye Xuan didn't understand what caused Xia Nan to end up like this. After all, Xia Nan's strength was extraordinary.


When Ye Xuan finished concocting the medicine, Ye Nan woke up from his deep slumber.


He passed the antidote to Xia Nan and said in a deep voice, "Drinking it in one go will remove the poison in your body. Together with my 13 heaven defying needles, it will be able to cure your throat …"


Xia Nan nodded lightly, took the medicine bowl, and drank all of it in one gulp.


Ye Xuan nodded in satisfaction. He paused for a moment before continuing, "Next, I'll use the 13 needles to treat your injuries. You carefully feel the air flow from my silver needle and guide it …"



Summer Nan nodded and slowly closed her eyes.


Ye Xuan's palm touched his waist as the Crossing Disaster Golden Needle stealthily appeared in his hand.


After that, he placed the Crosscut Gold Needle into Xia Nan's wrist, and quietly activated the thirteen heaven defying needles.


Thirteen heaven defying needles, one needle to nourish your body!


Vast amounts of life force entered Xia Nan's body through the silver needles. While healing his internal injuries, they also combined with the antidote that Xia Nan had just drunk to expel the poison from his body.


"Puchi …"


At some point, Xia Nan's face had a look of intense pain. His face turned pale and he felt his chest tighten as a mouthful of blood sprayed out from his mouth.


As Xia Nan spat out a mouthful of blood, he felt as if his chest and body had become lighter.


"How do you feel?"


Ye Xuan lightly patted Xia Nan's back. Every time he slapped Xia Nan, a surge of vitality would flow from his palm into Xia Nan's body, relieving the pain in his body.


"Brother Xuan, thank you …"


Xia Nan raised his head and directed his gaze at Ye Xuan. Hot tears flowed from his eyes as he expressed his gratitude.


"We are all brothers of our own, what is there to be polite about?"


Ye Xuan patted Xia Nan's shoulder to show his comfort.


"Brother Xuan, I …" Am I crippled? "


After hesitating for a moment, Xia Nan mustered up the courage to ask.


He was well aware that all the meridians in his body had been broken and his dantian crippled. There was no longer any hope for him on the road of martial arts.


Hearing Xia Nan's words, Ye Xuan's eyes flashed with a trace of dejection as he looked at Xia Nan's nervous appearance and expectant gaze, then he lightly nodded.


This was an era where martial arts gradually revived and slowly moved towards prosperity.


Whether it was money, status, or power, they all had a lot to do with one's own strength.


The reason why aristocratic families could become so powerful was because they possessed a large number of experts and a strong foundation, aside from having a large business group. This was the reason why they were able to survive for a long time.


If one did not possess sufficient strength, one could only become an ordinary, mediocre, ordinary person.


Only when he was strong enough would he be qualified to pursue what he wanted.


"Indeed …" Indeed, even you can't do anything about it … "


Seeing this, Xia Nan's pale face couldn't help but reveal a thick, bitter smile as his mouth emitted words of despair.


Nothing made him feel worse than this.


All his hopes, all his goals had all been cut off …


From then on, he could no longer avenge his uncle Bai and his mother.


From then on, he would never have the chance to have that damned fellow kneel before him and kowtow and admit his wrongs …


From then on, he would never be able to trample that damned family under his feet again …


All the meridians in his body had been broken, and he, whose dantian had been crippled, was just a cripple.


On the path of martial arts, most warriors focused on Qi Refinement, and the Dantian was the warehouse for storing Qi.


After many times of experimenting, the quality and nature of Qi stored in one's dantian varied. The strength of a martial artist also had different levels.


They were divided into: the Vajra Mortal Realm, the Supreme Force, the Four Divisions Earth Realm (also known as the Marquis of Martialism), the Free and Unrestrained Sky Realm (Martial Ancestor), and so on.


Each level was further divided into three small realms: initial stage, mastery stage, and peak stage.


In the past, the Southern Summer was a martial artist that had mastered the small success stage of the Supreme Force, so their strength was naturally extraordinary. Compared to Li Tian Jue, who was slaughtered by Ye Xuan, their strength was only a little weaker.



After all, according to this level, Li Tian Jue was at the Large Success stage of the Astral Energy Transformation.


Now that Xia Nan's Dantian had been destroyed, it was impossible for him to store Qi. No matter how hard he tried to cultivate it, it would be useless. He was just a mere mortal.


Of course, Ye Xuan didn't cultivate this kind of cultivation system used by the world's martial artists. Instead, he cultivated the unique Yin Yang Tyrant Body Technique.


The Yin Yang Tyrant Body Technique relied on absorbing the Yang energy from the heavens and the earth to improve one's body and increase one's strength. Currently, even if Ye Xuan was only at the initial Bone Refining stage, it would still be enough to fight against the peak of the Supreme Force.


Looking at Xia Nan's extremely depressed expression, Ye Xuan couldn't help but smile. He stretched out his hand to pat Xia Nan's shoulder and said in a deep voice, "The path of martial arts is vast and profound. Risk and opportunity coexist. Although your dantian has been destroyed and cannot be repaired, it has opened up another path for you. "


"Which way?"


Xia Nan couldn't help but be slightly surprised when he heard Ye Xuan's words.


"The path of horizontal refinement!"


Ye Xuan replied in a low voice.


"The path of refinement?"


Xia Nan had a puzzled look on her face.


"Yes, the path of martial arts is vast and profound, and people divide martial arts into internal and external skills. Usually, most people train in internal skills, and after many people's experience, they have already mastered a complete set of systems and techniques. This is what many people call the Diamond Gigantic Elephant, the Astral Energy Transformation, the Four Appearances Earth Realm (also known as the Marquis of Martialism), the Free and Unrestrained Sky Realm (Martial Ancestor), and so on."


Ye Xuan nodded his head lightly as he slowly explained the path of martial arts to Xia Nan. "As for external techniques, people call them the path of horizontal cultivation. This path is extremely difficult, requiring people to pay ten times the effort compared to inner force cultivation, causing the number of people who cultivate to be extremely few. They don't have a complete system, and are still in the process of figuring it out …"


Honestly speaking, my dantian also has huge problems and flaws that I am unable to store energy. Therefore, I also walk the road of unrestrained cultivation and have discovered some insights that belong to me. If you don't mind, can you accompany me on this path?


Ye Xuan turned around and patted Xia Nan's shoulder, revealing a warm and sunny smile as he spoke in a low voice.


In order to restore Xia Nan's confidence, Ye Xuan could only come up with such an excuse.


"Brother Xuan, is what you said true?"


Xia Nan was stunned at first, but soon after, a look of ecstasy appeared on his face as he spoke with excitement.


"Of course! However, this road is extremely difficult. It requires you to put in ten times more effort than ordinary people, and it requires you to suffer a lot.


Ye Xuan lightly nodded and said with a serious expression.


"As long as I can become strong again, and avenge my dead mother and Uncle Bai, and trample that damned family beneath my feet, I can persist even if I have to work thousands or even tens of thousands of times harder than normal people!"


Xia Nan said with a resolute expression.


"Since that's the case, then I'll tell you the cultivation method for the outer force cultivation …" "How far you can go on this path is up to you!"


Seeing the resolute expression on Xia Nan's face, Ye Xuan nodded his head and passed on the improved Sun God's Tyrant Body Technique that he'd developed for Dragon Elder and Kuang Ba to Xia Nan.


From then on, there was an additional talented helper at Ye Xuan's side.
