AGM 462 - Release
Right now, the controller of the Seven Slaughters Puppet, was Qin Wentian's original body. His multiple wills of Mandates erupted forth, while the astral energies of the other six cultivators flooded into him.
In the middle of the air, a terrifying sword melody abruptly resounded. Above the sky, a dazzling dream-type constellation formed, while an overwhelming force gushed forth from it.
"Do you think you can stop me with this?" Jun Yu's voice was ice cold. He leisurely stepped out while releasing his constellation as well. Moments later, an extremely fearful sealing energy permeated the entire area.
"Capture him." Jun Yu spoke. The two Ascendants beside him stepped out, making their moves at the same time. Jun Yu pointed his finger ahead. This entire space was vibrating, as though it was currently being forcibly sealed by a terrifying energy.
"BREAK!" The Seven Slaughters Puppet slashed out with a sword, powerful to the point where it seemed like it could slash apart the entire world. At the same time, an alluring figure untouched by mortal dust appeared next to Little Rascal. She took hold of the unconscious Qin Wentian while spatial energy erupted around her as she rapidly retreated.
"Where can you run to?"
Jun Yu coldly snorted, a pair of confinement imprints appeared in the middle of the air, each locking down on the either sides of the maiden. Space was locked down, Qing`er couldn't move. Her eyes erupted with an extreme coldness, staring at Jun Yu. The sight of her actually caused Jun Yu to hesitated slightly as he frowned.
Such a beautiful woman, yet she was as cold as a snow lotus.
The other two Ascendants from the Pill Emperor had already arrived, and instantly surrounded Qing`er and the unconscious Qin Wentian. They had no escape route.
The the other battle had already concluded. Fairy Qingmei, as well as the leader and old granny of the Mystic Moon Sect easily dealt with the clan lord of the Chen Clan who only had a cultivation base at the first level of Celestial Phenomenon. There was no suspense to this battle.
Shortly after, the remaining Ascendant of the Great Solar Chen Clan was trapped by Fairy Qingmei before the spear of darkness of the Mystic Moon Sect pierced right through his brain, killing him.
The death of the Chen Clan's clan lord signified the destruction of yet another transcendent power. The Great Solar Chen Clan that was one of the nine grand clans in ancient Grand Xia, a powerful clan that was ranked within the top five of the thirty-six transcendent powers, was now merely a shadow of its former self.
The three Celestial Phenomenon Ascendants of the Great Solar Chen Clan had all died today.
If this matter were to be brought up in the future, people would definitely use this incident as the butt of a joke.
The clouds of the world had no form and were constantly changing. Doomsday had arrived for the once powerful Great Solar Chen Clan.
The others from Chen Clan were all staring blankly. And when they finally recovered and wanted to escape, several masked figures abruptly appeared, blocking their way. No matter where the Chen Clan members chose to go, there were already people arranged to block the paths of escape via the skies and the earth.
These masked figures had infiltrated and mingled within the spectators of the Heavenly Fate Rankings battle. Nobody knew who they were and where they come from.
However, Fairy Qingmei and the clan leader of the Mystic Moon Sect had no time to care about these members of the Chen Clan. They instantly sped towards Qin Wentian only to see that right now, Qin Wentian and Qing`er were trapped in the space between the Pill Emperor Hall's two Ascendants.
"You dare to touch them?" Fairy Qingmei's voice was ice cold as her Shadow Glamor Constellation appeared. At the same time, the two Ascendants from the Mystic Moon Sect similarly released their constellations. All the powerhouses at the Ascendant realm had gathered here for the final confrontation.
Pill Emperor lazily swept a glance at Fairy Qingmei. He languidly walked to Qin Wentian's side, "Everything today can finally come to an end."
The Great Solar Chen Clan has been destroyed, but it has nothing to do with them. On the contrary, it was beneficial to their Pill Emperor Hall. With a powerful transcendent power out of the way, it meant one less obstacle to block their rise back to glory.
Now, Qin Wentian had landed in their hands as well.
The battle today could be considered to have concluded with a perfect ending.
But right now, they only saw Qing`er gently placing Qin Wentian back onto Little Rascal's back while she stepped forward, towards the space between the two Celestial Phenomenon Ascendants.
"Mhm?" The Pill Emperor frowned as his killing intent burst forth from him. This woman had appeared before in their Pill Emperor Hall. Back then, she was the one who whisked Qin Wentian away.
"If you dare to touch her, I can guarantee that even the Royal Sacred Sect of Grand Shang, wouldn't be able to save your Pill Emperor Hall." Fairy Qingmei's voice coldly sounded out, her words causing the frown on the Pill Emperor's face to further deepened. He then glanced at Fairy Qingmei, "Are you trying to scare me?"
What sort of power is the Royal Sacred Sect? Fairy Qingmei's meaning was that the background of this celestial maiden was so high that even the Royal Sacred Sect wouldn't even dare to antagonise her backers?
"That's right, I'm trying to scare you. Why don't you try it and see?" The Fairy Qingmei's glacial voice rang out, her words causing the pupils of the Pill Emperor to narrow as he stared at Qing`er. However, Qing`er didn't even bother with him. In fact, she didn't even glance at him. Looking at her arrogance and aloofness, the heart of the Pill Emperor couldn't help but waver slightly as he thought back to the back view of her carrying Qin Wentian away back then that day.
This female was extraordinary for sure, did she really have some sort of overwhelming background?
In fact, Qing`er wasn't arrogant. It was merely that her temperament had always been ice cold. This wasn't something she intentionally exuded and it was precisely because of this unconscious lofty feeling she exuded that caused the Pill Emperor to be slightly wary of her background.
Shifting his gaze onto Qin Wentian again, he decided. Since Qin Wentian was still in their hands, if this maiden wanted to leave, they can just allow her to leave. With her current strength, she wouldn't be able to affect the situation here today.
Yet he didn't expect that Qing`er would walk to the location of the Seven Slaughter Puppets. After which, one of the puppets opened up as a young man exited it. This young man was none other than Qin Wentian's other true body, Di Tian.
This sight caused all of the spectators to be stunned. Were these puppets controlled by humans? In that case, were there still other cultivators within the other six puppets?
Qing`er entered the puppet, taking control of Di Tian's puppet.
"Useless parlor tricks. Get the hell out of my way. Today, my Pill Emperor Hall will definitely take Qin Wentian away with us." The Pill Emperor walked to the side of Qin Wentian. Little Rascal howled furiously, barking at him, yet the only reaction the Pill Emperor had was a cold laugh. With a glimmer in his eyes, the palm of the Pill Emperor suddenly snaked out. Instantly, Qin Wentian's body was abruptly locked down, shifted away by the Pill Emperor.
Fairy Qingmei and the other two Ascendants were still holding their positions. How could they possibly allow the Pill Emperor to take Qin Wentian away?
"You guys, even when adding the power of the puppets, you only have a total of four Ascendant-level cultivators. Without that Immortal Vanquishing Swordplay from before, do you think you are powerful enough to stop the three of us? Foolish idiots, if we start a war here, you might be able to hold us back for some time but we would still be able to retreat unharmed. However, if Qin Wentian somehow dies during the battle between us, it wouldn't be our fault." The Pill Emperor threatened coldly.
However, at this moment, an intense spatial pressure permeated the air. Above the puppet Qing`er entered, a space-type constellation was birthed as terrifying spatial fluctuations sealed the entire space. And in addition to the illusionary-type Shadow Glamor Constellation of Fairy Qingmei, it isn't going to be so easy for them to break through the encirclement.
"My name is Di Tian."
At this moment, a thunderous voice boomed out. The brows of Jun Yu and the two others all furrowed as they stared in the direction of Di Tian. He stood in the centre of the Seven Slaughter Puppets, protected by them.
The three Ascendants were all taken aback. The one who spoke out at this moment, was actually this man.
"The 'Di' of Di Cang, the Azure Emperor. Right now, the Di Clan answers not only to Qin Wentian, but also to me. The innate techniques I know, Qin Wentian knows them as well." Di Tian calmly spoke as he continued, "Naturally, the innate techniques Qin Wentian knows, I, Di Tian, also knows them as well."
"Jun Yu, do you want to die?" Di Tian inclined his head, staring at Jun Yu, his countenance like an unsheathed sword, able to penetrate through everything.
Jun Yu frowned, his killing intent obvious to all. The words spoken was something Qin Wentian had said to him before. And today, this man actually dared to threaten him once more?
"With the chant of the demonic divinities, the ancient will stretching across the skies. Gathering the demonic qi from the eight directions, devouring the astral energy from the starry skies..." Di Tian murmured. A strange melody echoed throughout the world as a terrifying energy rocked the void, gathering on Di Tian.
"Demonic Divinity Sacrificial Transformation."
The Pill Emperor stiffened. He was all too familiar with this particular secret art. Back then, he had personally witnessed Qin Wentian using this.
And right now, the technique Di Tian was using, was none other than the Demonic Divinity Sacrificial Transformation!
He said that he knew all the techniques Qin Wentian knew.
And he had proven that he even knew the Demonic Divinity Sacrificial Transformation.
In that case, didn't that mean that he also knew how to execute the Immortal Vanquishing Swordplay?!
Upon thinking of this, the three Ascendants of the Pill Emperor Hall all felt their hearts shuddering. Their eyes were fixed onto Di Tian while terrifying sharpness flashed in their eyes.
"If I use the Demonic Divinity Sacrificial Transformation and turned into a demonic divinity, I will definitely execute the Immortal Vanquishing Swordplay. And at that time, maybe Qin Wentian would die, but Jun Yu, you would definitely have to accompany him in death!" Di Tian's eyes gleamed with a cold light, his words causing Jun Yu's heart to shudder violently as his countenance turned incredibly unsightly.
"I don't believe that you know that particular sword art." Jun Yu spat.
"After killing you, I shall flee Grand Xia. How vast is this world? Don't tell me bullshit like you are the direct disciple of an elder. Even if you are a direct descendant of the Royal Sacred Sect, what can they do to me? Do you want to gamble on this?" Di Tian's tone of voice was glacial. At this moment, a terrifying ancient will permeated, stretching across the skies. The power of the demonic divinity's constellations in the eight directions were as if they couldn't be blocked by the lockdown of space and directly sent down starlight, landing on Di Tian's body. The demonic qi exuding from him grew increasingly terrifying.
"If I turn into a demon, I won't rest until I have killed you. You have five breaths of time left." Di Tian stared at Jun Yu, every word of his causing the expression on Jun Yu's face to grow uglier by the second.
The demonic qi in the air got thicker and thicker. The ancient will connected with the demonic divinities as their power gathered. Once the essence of humanity is sacrificed and the essence of the divinities flooded his body, only the Immortal Vanquishing Swordplay would be able to negate it. And if he was forced to use it once more, he would definitely unleash the sword strike at Jun Yu.
"Release Qin Wentian." Jun Yu bellowed, his expression extremely ashen.
The countenances of the other two Ascendants were incredibly unsightly to behold as well. With a wave of his hands, they tossed out Qin Wentian. Fairy Qingmei's silhouette flickered as she appeared near him and caught hold of him.
Unless Di Tian truly underwent the demon transformation and slayed Jun Yu, the combat strength of both sides were equivalent. Either way, they couldn't stop the Ascendants of the Pill Emperor Hall from leaving.
However, the price for doing so, was too great.
Qin Wentian was grievously injured while Di Tian had to control the situation.
"This matter has not ended yet." Jun Yu snarled, departing as the spatial energy dissipated, allowing him to leave.
The dangerous situation today had had finally ended with the death of the three Ascendants of the Great Solar Chen Clan. Although Qin Wentian was grievously injured as a result, an outcome like this was well worth it!
