AGM 514 - Unrivalled Stance
"What does he want to do?"
Continuously passing two tests of the nine great sects caused the hearts of the crowd to tremble intensely once more. The tests of any of the nine great sects were of the highest difficulty. Only a minority would be able to succeed. Yet, Qin Wentian passed two at one go in an effortless manner.
The young man in black then walked towards the direction of the Violet Thunder Sect, staring at that statue in the lightning array.
"What a madman! Is he planning to pass all of the tests of the nine great sects?"
Qin Wentian's actions shocked everyone. The six major powers expressions had all turned green. The demon-level geniuses from their sect couldn't even pass a single test. Yet, Qin Wentian did so effortlessly. Wouldn't everyone agree that the fall of their chosen in Qin Wentian's hands were well deserved?
"BOOM!" Qin Wentian stepped forwards into the lightning array as that statue within instantly blasted a punch towards him. However, Qin Wentian's expression didn't change and he continued breaking through it. Taking five steps in a row before he groaned in pain. The crowd couldn't help but sigh at the overwhelming strength that Qin Wentian had displayed. It was not that easy to pass the tests of the nine great sects. In fact, the test designed by the Violet Thunder Sect was one of those with the highest difficulty. There were still two more steps that Qin Wentian had to take. These were the last two steps that must be taken before one could be considered as passing this test. This final two steps would result in the most fearsome and powerful backlash this statue could dish out.
"BOOM!" Qin Wentian took the sixth step as the statue unleashed its sixth punch. Sword might clashed with bolts of thunder, resulting in shrill sounds echoing in the air. Shockwaves from the after impact engulfed Qin Wentian. Yet, his countenance was as calm as before, as he domineeringly stepped out for the seventh time. The instant his step landed, a boundless amount of killing intent swept over everything.
The lightning statue punched out for the seventh time, the power of its punch collided with the storm of sword qi as both attacks cancelled out the force of each other. With a flick of his sleeves, Qin Wentian slowly turned and walked away. It was as though the test of the Violet Thunder Sect wasn't worth of his mention.
"He already passed the tests of three great sects, what a show of dominance!"
"The talent of this fellow is just too terrifying. But, the disciples from some of the nine great sects have already passed through the Violet Thunder Sword-Drum Formation. Does he still wish to attempt the tests from the other six great sects?"
After that, under the stunned gazes of the crowd. Qin Wentian lifted the great axe provided by the Heaven Cleaving Manor and cleaved through the array world using his overwhelming strength. Easily passing the test in a domineering manner.
As for the test for the Divine Dragon Castle? Qin Wentian transformed into a terrifying demon. Slaying phantom demonic dragons left and right as he crushed them all. Finally, he broke through the formation and walked out in a dominant fashion.
Qin Wentian's blood bubbled within him as he took the test for the Blood Devil Palace. As he fought his way through a nest of devils he immersed himself in the power of his bloodline. In the end, he easily passed the test of the Blood Devil Palace.
Under the incredulous gazes of the crowd. Qin Wentian seemed untouchable by poison as he dominated the test for Sky Poison Valley. Effortlessly passing this test as well.
The test designed by the Forgotten Immortal Tower was exceptionally terrifying. Qin Wentian found himself in a formation world which surrounded him with countless heavenly beauties. A less disciplined man would sink into boundless lust. Unable to extricate themselves. However, Qin Wentian's heart had be tempered long ago. Back in the royal tomb of Grand Xia his other true self had undergone a multitude of trails. The bevy of beauties in front of him were no different than skeletons in make-up. Without succumbing to nefarious desires, he passed the test of the Forgotten Immortal Tower. Consecutively passing a total of eight out of the nine test designed by the nine great sects. And finally, he walked towards the direction of the Battle Sword Sect.
This test designed by the Battle Sword Sect tests the resoluteness of one's heart. If one's heart wasn't determined enough, death was the only outcome. This was something Lin Shuai announced when he first produced this test. But, Qin Wentian decisively stepped inside without hesitation. He advanced through row after row of sword light. Allowing the millions upon millions of strands of sword qi to penetrate his body. Yet, his heart did not waver in the slightest. Ultimately, he took the final step, passing through the test designed by the Battle Sword Sect.
The tests designed by the nine great sects, all were passed by Qin Wentian.
On the vast stage, silence was everywhere. Qin Wentian casually cleared all the tests designed by the nine great sects, causing great waves of shock to bombard the hearts of the crowd.
Earlier, those who had managed to pass the one of the tests of the nine great sects were all feeling self-satisfied. But right now, their feeling of self-satisfaction all vanished into nothingness. Compared to Qin Wentian, their accomplishments weren't worthy of a mention.
"Mad man..." Ji Xue was deeply stunned by Qin Wentian's achievements. She had already thought he was crazy for daring to steal all the constellation fruits right in front of the chosen from the major powers. But now, his actions were even crazier than before.
"This guy..." Xu Feng was similarly stunned, as huge waves of shock arose in his heart. He always felt that his talent wasn't bad, but right now he could only see how laughable was it. In fact, those truly outstanding characters were light years ahead of him.
Even for Qin Wentian's mortal enemies, they were all similarly stunned by him. The countenances of the experts from the six major powers of Xuan King City were ugly to the max, the killing intent in their hearts got stronger and stronger.
Shang Yue's beautiful eyes froze as she stared at Qin Wentian. Once, Qin Wentian contended against her for the spatial brush. Back then she was all high and mighty. Thinking that Qin Wentian truly didn't know what death was. He dared to snatch something that she wanted? But right now, she felt ashamed of her own inferiority. This was someone who dared to point his halberd right at Jun Yu. Rebutting the personal disciple of an elder from the Royal Sacred Sect. All that Qin Wentian had done, was something she would never dare to do.
"No matter how crazy you are, you will have to die here today." Jun Yu's countenance was incredibly unsightly. Back then in Grand Xia, he had a taste of Qin Wentian's madness. Qin Wentian didn't mind sacrificing everything just to unleash a single stance of the Immortal Vanquishing Swordplay, dooming the Great Solar Chen Clan. But since he was his mortal enemy, there was no need to hesitate. The more talent he has, the earlier he should die. Jun Yu didn't want Qin Wentian to mature any further and become a source of future trouble.
Several experts from the nine great sects had already made their way through the passageway formation. Although they had personally witnessed how strong Qin Wentian was, it didn't diminish their killing intent in the slightest. They had to get their hands on the Heaven Mending Pill. Only this way, would they increase their chances of passing the test set by the Royal Sacred Sect and become an official member.
They gradually moved forward, wanting to surround Qin Wentian. It was obvious they didn't plan to engage him one on one. With the death of Shang Tong's three subordinates fresh in their minds, they didn't dare to take the risk. Even though their actions were shameful, at this point of time, they couldn't care less.
The leading representatives from majority of the nine great sects all felt their hearts convulsing. They was very clear on how high Qin Wentian's talent was. And right now, they couldn't help feeling like they missed out on something excellent. But they couldn't care so much about it, they had no more way to retreat. Since they are unable to get him to join them, they might very well destroy him. If not, if one of the other great sects acquired such a demon-level genius, it was highly possible Qin Wentian may grow to become an existence capable of threatening them.
In such a circumstance, nine out of ten Qin Wentian's would choose to join the Battle Sword Sect. After all, in his time of need, the Battle Sword Sect was the only sect which made a move in his favor.
Qin Wentian didn't even seemed to care about the experts rushing over. After he passed the test from the Battle Sword Sect, he had a smile on his face as he stared at Lin Shuai. "I wonder if Junior's performance was satisfactory enough for me to be admitted into the Battle Sword Sect?"
As the sound of his voice faded, silence descended on the entire space once again.
Indeed, Qin Wentian had chosen to join the Battle Sword Sect.
The experts from the Battle Sword Sect all stood up with smiles on their faces. Lin Shuai was smiling as well, the reason he came all the way here, was solely for Qin Wentian. Even if Qin Wentian didn't ask, he would still have offered. After all, earlier Qin Wentian did pass the test of the Battle Sword Sect.
Lin Shuai understood that with Qin Wentian's earlier performance showcasing his talent, him choosing to join the Battle Sword Sect of his own initiative was returning a favor. Hence, this was why he stormed through the tests of the other eight sects, wishing to use them as the most dazzling highlights to tell everyone that he had chosen to join the Battle Sword Sect. And as expected, the Battle Sword Sect instantly became the focal point of the crowd.
"Hmph, as expected." The lead-representatives from the other eight great sects all felt a chill in their hearts. Qin Wentian has indeed chosen to join the Battle Sword Sect. In that case, he shouldn't blame them for their decisions.
"Naturally." Lin Shuai laughed. He then continued, "Since you are now a member of my Battle Sword Sect, I truly wish to see who would dare to touch you."
"Killing so many, he is nothing more than a crazed murderer. It's ridiculous for you to think that he can safely leave this place today. Lin Shuai, I'm afraid that even with you here, you will be unable to protect this brat." Jun Yu's cold voice rang out. How could they allow Qin Wentian to leave here safely together with the Battle Sword Sect?"
"Although this young man is extraordinary and passed the test of the Battle Sword Sect, the matter of him killing the innocents earlier has yet to come to an end." An expert from the Violet Thunder Sect spoke, wanting to force Qin Wentian to remain behind.
"Killing innocents?" A cold smile appeared on Lin Shuai's face, "Only those thick-skinned shameless bastards would be able to say something like this. You mean you wanted him to stand there allowing the 'innocents' to kill him as they please?"
"Many sixth-level Heavenly Dipper Sovereigns joined hands but still died in his hands. Now that you all mobilized the disciples from the eight great sects wanting to kill him. Do you all even still have your pride?" An old man from the Battle Sword Sect coldly snorted, the actions of these people left him totally speechless.
"Hehe no matter what, since so many experts had already stepped on the stage, they can't disperse for nothing right?" An expert from the Qinghua Mountain laughed, his words causing Qin Wentian's eyes to gleam. It seems that after he rejected their invitations twice, the lead-representatives from the Qinghua Mountain harboured hatred in their hearts.
However right at this moment, Qin Wentian's gaze flickered with astonishment when he stared in the direction of the Violet Thunder Sword-Drum Formation. A lone silhouette could be seen stepping through the formation, slowly walking his way.
"Qing`er." Qin Wentian stared at that silhouette which resembled the icy lotus atop a snowy mountain.
Qing`er walked forward, and an instant later, she stood beside Qin Wentian. Her actions causing a majority of the crowd to notice her existence.
"What a beautiful maiden."
"Why does she look so icy cold, like a beauty in the middle of a snowstorm. Where did she come from? Shang Yue from Xuan King City is already extremely beautiful. But when you compare her to this maiden, the radiance is like the light of a firefly compared to the moon."
Many people have a blank look in their eyes as they stared at Qing`er, unable to shift their gazes away. Even the experts from the nine great sects were all similarly dazzled.
Shang Tong's golden eyes flashed with a resplendent light. The path of cultivation is long and arduous. He had seen countless beauties before. Never had he forgotten to enjoy himself, immersing in the taste of countless beauties. This was why he wanted the Xuan King's Manor to send Shang Yue over to be his consort. But after seeing Qing`er, he was no longer interested in Shang Yue.
"Hey miss, might I enquire your name? Are you willing to join my Shang Royal Clan?" Shang Tong stared at Qing`er, evidently moved by her beauty. Yet Qing`er didn't even glance at him, she completely ignored his words.
Qin Wentian glanced at Shang Tong, as a glint of cold light flickered in his eyes. After which he turned his gaze to Qing`er and asked in a faint voice, "Why are you here?"
"I'm here to help you." Qing`er's melodious voice rang out, staring at the experts who were planning to surround Qin Wentian. Those beautiful eyes of hers that stole the souls of so many others now flashed with a glint of coldness.
Qing'er stepped out and instantly, a terrifying spatial storm engulfed the entire battle stage. Each of the experts moving towards Qin Wentian felt their bodies being restricted by space. When that spatial storm drifted over, their countenances all turned pale white.
"How powerful, how is it possible that she's so strong?"
Several representatives of the nine great sects all stood up as their eyes gleamed with an incomparable sharpness. "Peak of the sixth-level, but her Mandate of Space had already reached the Perfection Boundary of the second level?"
Qin Wentian was also stunned by Qing`er's strength. Sixth level of Heavenly Dipper yet with a Perfect Boundary Mandate. Not only that, the Mandate she excelled in was the Mandate of Space? It could be said that on this battle stage, she was an invincible existence.
"Qing`er." Qin Wentian's heart trembled. Qing`er was so domineering and powerful!
