Chapter 618: Settling All Together
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: - -
Qin Wentian originally didn't have the intention to stay here for long. It was only because of Moon that he extended his stay by two days. He initially wanted to silently disappear right after the end of the examination. Being able to watch as Moon made her name with her creation in this examination, this journey could also be considered perfect.
In reality, there would also be things outside one's expectations. He didn't plan on confronting Rong Yan nor Shen Jing, he also didn't want Moon's future life in the academy to be disrupted. However, there was always something that had to happen. Since this was the case, Qin Wentian might as well choose to settle everything in one shot. Hence, he displayed his overwhelmingly extraordinary attainment in the field of divine inscriptions.
After that, it led to the scene happening now. Those gazes that were focused on Wang Yunfei instantly shifted and landed on him instead. Or to better put it, those gazes were fixed on the divine inscriptions he created with each step.
He could birth divine inscriptions with every step he took, not only that, the divine inscriptions were all at the fourth-rank. Such a terrifying attainment was enough to cause those geniuses in the Divine Weapon Academy to despair. When would they ever be able to reach such a realm?
Even Wang Yunfei himself couldn't achieve the terrifying feat that this so-called apprentice had just performed, right?
Not only that, the sole reason as to why Qin Wentian took these steps was to target Wang Yunfei. The dazzling genius of the Divine Weapon Academy, Wang Yunfei.
"You, still don't have the qualifications to speak to me." That cold statement, along with this showing of his supreme attainment in the field of divine inscriptions, was undoubtedly the strongest response to Wang Yunfei. Because of Moon, Wang Yunfei shifted his rage onto Qin Wentian. Hence, Qin Wentian used the most direct technique to counter-attack him.
Could Wang Yunfei do what he had done? No, he couldn't. Hence, the crowd only saw the ordinarily calm-looking countenance of Wang Yunfei turning ashen.
Right now, the domineering stance Qin Wentian displayed left Moon stunned. In the few days she had interacted with him, Moon always felt that Qin Wentian was magnanimous, cheerful, and was always smiling, giving off vibes of free-spiritedness. This was the first time she saw how tyrannical Qin Wentian could be. He showed a different face when facing against Shen Jing and Rong Yan. At this moment, Qin Wentian didn't hide his brilliance in the slightest. It was as though as long as he was willing to, he would become the focal point of attention.
Even if Wang Yunfei was standing before him, Wang Yunfei would too lose his luster. This made Moon sigh silently in her heart. Who was this fellow exactly?
The ones in the crowd whose heart felt the greatest rush of impact were none other than Rong Yan and Shen Jing. Right now, the brilliance Qin Wentian was exuding caused their hearts to shiver. They had actually arranged for Qin Wentian to become an apprentice...if it was simply so, there was nothing for it. But they still 'gave' Qin Wentian away like an item, causing him to become the apprentice of Moon.
Shen Jing and Rong Yan weren't stupid. Upon seeing Qin Wentian revealing his strength as well as how Moon always defended him, how could they still fail to understand how Moon transformed so much? All these were caused by their 'giving' away of Qin Wentian. And what's more laughable was how they still tried to create all kind of problems, trying to humiliate Qin Wentian.
But since matters had came to this, there was no way to return to the past.
Qin Wentian then shifted his gaze onto Rong Yan and Shen Jing, his cold eyes were akin to sharp swords, causing their hearts to involuntarily tremble.
"Not everyone is a hypocrite like the two of you. Moon has a kind heart, and although I was 'given' by you two to Moon as an apprentice, Moon has always treated me with respect and even taught me what she could. Hence, I treat her as my friend. As for the two of you, I had never expressed any ill intent towards you. Yet for some reason, the expressions on your faces were always filled with pride and contempt, the tone of your voices containing traces of humiliation."
Qin Wentian coldly continued, "Looking at your high and mighty appearances, for people who are ignorant, they might really still think how powerful you are. However, you are both clearly only ordinary members. I really wonder, where did all the arrogance on your faces came from? Do you know why I couldn't even be bothered to entertain you all? Because, the two of you aren't even worthy."
A voice akin to a heavy hammer smashed upon the hearts of Shen Jing and Rong Yan, causing both of their countenances to turn pale. That's right, from the start to the end, Qin Wentian took no actions against them. It wasn't because he didn't have a temper, but rather, he didn't felt that they were worthy enough. How much arrogance was in these words? Yet it seemed that truly, Qin Wentian was more than capable enough to utter words like this.
"I know who you are," At this moment, Wang Yunfei coldly spoke as he stared intently at Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian inclined his head and stared at Wang Yunfei, only to hear Wang Yunfei laughing, "Seventh-level of Heavenly Dipper as well as that aura you exude. I won't be mistaken, you must be the very same person who exchanged for the bone powder of the Sky Demon Oracle Bone using over a hundred top-tier fourth-ranked divine weapons at the Flying Immortal Tower, and you even killed Xue Yunfan from the Cold Slaughter Sect off after that. To think that you actually hid yourself in my Divine Weapon Academy."
Wang Yunfei's words caused yet another huge uproar. Even the elders in the spectator stands felt their hearts stirring. Over a hundred pieces of top-tier fourth-ranked divine weapons? How good was this man at forging weapons? One could tell instantly from his outstanding attainments in the field of divine inscriptions that it would be almost effortless for this man to create a top-tier fourth-ranked weapon.
Not only that, why did Qin Wentian use such a large quantity of divine weapons to exchange for the bone powder of the Sky Demon Oracle Bone?
"So what, even if you know?" Qin Wentian emotionlessly commented.
"You came to my Divine Weapon Academy because you had no way to solo forge all that weapons you needed on your own. Moon must be the person who aided you in this. You used the resources and facilities of my Academy to transact for the bone powder and even dared to be so arrogant here today? Are you doing so because you feel that your attainments in divine inscriptions are extraordinary, or because you wanted to use the identity of an outsider to establish your might here in the Divine Weapon Academy?"
Wang Yunfei, as expected as a Heaven Chosen from the Divine Weapon Academy, he quickly inferred many things. The reason why Qin Wentian would come here was undoubtedly to borrow their resources. And this person didn't have anything to rely on, which was why he went to the Flying Immortal Tower in a conical bamboo hat to conceal his identity. Since this was the case, how could Wang Yunfei still allow Qin Wentian to leave easily?
"Wang Yunfei, aren't you a little shameless by saying this? The resources he used were all entitled to me. When had he ever used the academy resources?" Before this Moon still held Wang Yunfei in the highest regard, yet right now she couldn't help but to be sorely disappointed even if he was the most outstanding Heaven Chosen of the Heavenly Dipper Realm in the Divine Weapon Academy.
"Moon." Qin Wentian called out. Moon turned to him only to see a slight smile on Qin Wentian's face. "Don't bother arguing with him, there's no meaning to it."
Moon's countenance stiffened slightly as a heavy disappointment flashed in her eyes. Although her performance was outstanding, her status in the academy couldn't be compared to Wang Yunfei, who was outstanding in both combat and divine inscriptions. If not, she would be able to help speak up for Qin Wentian.
"Wang Yunfei, no matter what excuses you find, it's obvious you are aiming for the treasure I transacted for. However, I only have a single question for you. Are you even worthy of it?" Qin Wentian mocked. "All the elders of the Divine Weapon Academy, what are your views on this matter?"
Such an arrogant tone caused the hearts of many members to pound. This person was simply too brazen, he basically didn't give a shit about Wang Yunfei.
"Your weapon forging abilities are truly extraordinary, would you be willing to join our academy?" An elder asked.
"I don't like to be restricted, I can only apologize and thank senior for your good will." Qin Wentian rejected with no hesitation, causing Moon to be increasingly nervous.
"Since you are not a member of my academy, the grudge between you and Wang Yunfei is a private one. Us elders naturally wouldn't go and interfere in it. You two can handle it among yourselves." That elder replied.
"I'm sure all of you have witnessed Moon's true abilities. Would her life be made difficult deliberately in the Divine Weapon Academy because of this matter?" Qin Wentian inquired again.
"Don't worry, we aren't blind. We can naturally see Moon's talent. As long as she is willing, there would be elders in the academy willing to accept her as a disciple. Our Divine Weapon Academy wouldn't be so shameless as to implicate an innocent genius disciple of our academy because of the grudge between you and Wang Yunfei." That elder assured him.
"This junior will naturally believe the Divine Weapon Academy would hold to its words." Qin Wentian nodded. He then stared at Moon, "Moon, your talent for weapon forging is truly not bad, this place is very suitable for you. Train up well here, you will definitely make your mark in the future. And for this matter, from now on you will have nothing to do with it."
"No..." Moon wanted to speak. She knew very well how powerful Wang Yunfei was. Wang Yunfei wanted to go to the Sacred Battle Platform tomorrow, that was how much confidence he had in his own strength. Although Qin Wentian's attainment in divine inscriptions were very outstanding, it was impossible for him to best Wang Yunfei in terms of combat.
"This matter shall come to an end here." Qin Wentian directly interjected, not allowing Moon to complete her sentence. "As for Wang Yunfei, I can't be bothered about him."
At this moment, seeing how much confidence Qin Wentian had in himself, Moon finally allowed herself to believe in him, too.
Qin Wentian turned to Wang Yunfei, "I heard that you are planning to fight some battles on the Sacred Battle Platform tomorrow?"
Wang Yunfei froze before he coldly laughed, "There's an arranged battle there tomorrow. I, Wang Yunfei did intend to visit there to broaden my horizons."
"For the arranged battle tomorrow, I too wish to go there to broaden my horizons. The fame of the Sacred Battle Platform is known throughout the world. If you can defeat me there, no matter how many divine weapons you want, I shall give them to you," Qin Wentian emotionlessly stated. Since tomorrow he was already going to fight, he might as well settle all his grudges in one fell swoop there.
Wang Yunfei contemplated for a moment before stepping out and pointing at Qin Wentian. "This is something you proposed yourself. What if you don't turn up tomorrow?"
"I will go with you tomorrow. If he doesn't appear, you can do whatever you want to with me," Moon stared at Wang Yunfei as she spoke, her words causing Qin Wentian to be taken aback. Seeing how resolute Moon was, he didn't say anything else. But how could he not appear tomorrow? He was one of the participants of the arranged battle.
"Fine. Everyone in the academy has heard your words," Wang Yunfei stared at Moon. He then pointed his finger at Qin Wentian, "If you don't dare to show up tomorrow, I shall make Moon into my slave. You better consider well the consequences."
Qin Wentian's countenance turned cold, "If you are defeated, what then?"
"Do whatever you want to me," Wang Yunfei was incomparably confident. His cultivation base was at the ninth level of Heavenly Dipper, how could he be defeated by someone at the seventh level?
"See you tomorrow then," Qin Wentian hugged Little Rascal before turning and leaving the area together with Qing`er. Very swiftly, they left the Divine Weapon Academy. Yet soon after, a storm of such proportions kicked up that even the year-end examination today lost its luster.
The various outstanding Heaven Chosen from all directions were all rushing their way over to reach the Sacred Battle Platform by tomorrow. How dazzling would the battle between the top ranker of the Immortal Martial Realm, Qin Wentian, and one of the eight era-suppressing geniuses, Di Shi, be? How could people not be filled with anticipation and excitement for it?
Moon's brows were slightly furrowed, her face painted by worry, yet the expressions on Rong Yan and Shen Jing were all icy cold. Tomorrow would be the day where Wang Yunfei trampled on the fellow who caused them to lose all face!
