Chapter 666: Persisting Storm
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: - -
Ouyang Kuangsheng was already disillusioned and had seen through the Ouyang Ancestor. Back then when the Ouyang Ancestor betrayed the alliance, there was already conflict between them. And after that conflict, the Ouyang Ancestor had never looked straight at him again before as the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan started to ostracise him. For his parents as well as those who had blood relations to him, they were all removed of authority and became insignificant characters in the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan. Even the brother of his own grandfather had treated them coldly, wanting nothing to do with them.
This, in addition to them wanting to force Jiang Ting to marry Ouyang Zicheng and even imprisoning him? When has the people of his clan ever stepped up for him before? Only after Qin Wentian came by, resulting in the death of their two ascendants did these people began to panic.
"Do you all truly regret your actions?" Ouyang Kuangsheng mocked.
"Kuangsheng, the blood in your veins is still the blood of our Ouyang Aristocrat Clan. Could it be that you are willing to watch our clan fall from the peak and head towards death and destruction?" That person implored, the change in situation caused him to be very heartbroken. Even though he hated Qin Wentian, he could only choose to beg Ouyang Kuangsheng at this moment. How old was Qin Wentian? He was of the same generation as Ouyang Kuangsheng yet he was already strong enough to kill Celestial Phenomenon Ascendants. Wanting the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan to get revenge on Qin Wentian? That is nothing but a fool's dream.
"When all of you imprisoned me, did anyone ever remember that in the veins of I, Ouyang Kuangsheng, also flows the blood of the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan?" Ouyang Kuangsheng sarcastically laughed. The words of his clan members were too hypocritical.
"Don't need to beg Ouyang Kuangsheng. This old fool will definitely die today." Qin Wentian's voice rang out, causing the hearts of everyone to shiver. When they lifted their heads and stared in the air, the Ouyang Ancestor was completely encircled. Although his strength wasn't bad, he was still in imminent danger and had just suffered a heavy blow from the sect leader of the Mystic Moon Hall. Fresh blood leaked out from the corners of his mouth as his countenance turned pale white.
"Qin Wentian, I'm willing to compromise and allow Ouyang Kuangsheng to marry Jiang Ting. The Ouyang Aristocrat Clan shall ally ourselves with you and the position of the clan leader will be passed down to Ouyang Kuangsheng." The Ouyang Ancestor frantically stated but as the sound of his voice faded, the attacks of both Fairy Qingmei and Old Xing slammed into him.
"Too late. At this moment, what qualifications does your Ouyang Aristocrat Clan have to join my alliance?" Qin Wentian emotionlessly continued, "DIE!."
As the sound of his voice faded, a terrifying Grand Nihility Palm Imprint abruptly blasted out with enough power to seize the stars and pluck down the moon, slamming towards the Ouyang Ancestor.
The Ouyang Ancestor lifted his palms up to block, similarly slamming out with rage. The palm imprint of Qin Wentian was broken yet the how fast were the attacks from the other Ascendants? The attacks from the four of them continously landed, ravaging the Ouyang Ancestor badly.
"Kuangsheng!" The experts of the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan all stared at Ouyang Kuangsheng only to find not a hint of hesitation marred his face. He was calmly watching the battle in the air and would remain calm all the way until the Ouyang Ancestor was dead.
When the corpse of the Ouyang Ancestor fell from the air, the entire space was filled with silence.
Today, the transcendent power, the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan with three powerful ascendants had all fallen together, their scenario was exactly like the Great Solar Chen Clan back then.
The only difference was that back then, the Great Solar Chen Clan forced Qin Wentian to use all methods at his disposal even suffering grievous injuries to himself to accomplish that. But today, Qin Wentian's destruction of the three ascendants of the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan seemed so effortless to the crowd. There was no suspense at all from the beginning to the end.
It has finally concluded, the death of three ascendants meant that from now onwards, the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan was finished.
This marriage alliance has became nothing but a joke.
Qin Wentian led his four ascendants onto the wedding stage, his fiend-like eyes regarding the experts of the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan. Wherever his eyes passed by, nobody dared to match gazes with him.
"Get lost." Qin Wentian's gaze swept over everyone before he shifted his gaze onto Ouyang Zicheng. Ouyang Zicheng trembled violently, today was supposed to be the day of his grand wedding, a day that was filled with glory for him. Yet from the start till the end, he was only like a puppet, a casual spectator. Until right now as that lofty pair of eyes stared straight at him, telling he, who was the groom today to scram. Such a humiliation shook him to his core, fanning the flames of his anger.
"ARGHHHHHH!" A low-sounding roar erupted from his mouth as his killing intent gushed out. He dashed towards Jiang Ting who stood at his side. He wanted to destroy this woman, the woman of Ouyang Kuangsheng.
"OUYANG ZICHENG!" A voice erupted with anger. After which, a palm strike directly slammed onto his back, causing him to spit out blood as he collapsed onto the ground devoid of all strength. When he turned his head, he discovered that the person who attacked him was an elder of the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan. A heavy mockery flashed through his eyes before Ouyang Zicheng closed his eyes forever.
How sad, Qin Wentian led his forces and killed the three ascendants of their Ouyang Aristocrat Clan yet no one dared to resist at all. This was reality, the winner was the king while the losers are all vilified. Strength is supreme.
Since the three ascendants of their clan were already dead, the elders of the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan had no wish to witness the entire annihilation of their clan.
Qin Wentian stared at the elder who killed Ouyang Zicheng and didn't say anything. That elder, however spoke, "The Ouyang Aristocrat Clan is willing to follow Ouyang Kuangsheng, he shall be our clan leader."
"It's a fact that our ancestor was in the wrong and had made trouble for Ouyang Kuangsheng. These are the truthful opinions of all of us." The others of their clan all nodded their head. What else could they do? Take revenge against Qin Wentian and all die together?
Qin Wentian didn't express his attitude. He turned his gaze onto Ouyang Kuangsheng and spoke, "Kuangsheng, before I came, I already stated that the reason of me coming here today is to congratulate you and Jiang Ting. In addition to that, I want to invite both of you to my wedding. As to how you want to handle the matter of your clan, just do as your heart desires."
"You and Mo Qingcheng are soon to be married?" Ouyang Kuangsheng started.
"Yeah." Qin Wentian smiled and nodded. Upon hearing the name of Mo Qingcheng, the hearts of everyone present trembled again. Back then, the pride of the Pill Emperor Hall, it was precisely because of her that Qin Wentian split the Pill Emperor Hall into two. She was actually still alive? And now, they were even going to be married? The Pill Emperor Hall is going to face misfortune soon.
"Amazing!" Ouyang Kuangsheng hammered a punch at Qin Wentian. Jiang Ting also walked over, holding onto Ouyang Kuangsheng's hand as she smiled, "Wentian, thank you for helping us today."
"Oi Jiang Ting, don't say that. I still want you to help out in my wedding as Qingcheng's bridesmaid." Qin Wentian laughed.
"Okay! I will do that then, deference is no substitute for obedience." Jiang Ting sweetly smiled. She was truly grateful to Qin Wentian. Just a single sentence from Qin Wentian prevented her Jiang Clan from being swept up within this storm.
At this moment, the two ascendants from the Jiang Clan felt joy in their hearts upon noting how close the relationship Jiang Ting had with Qin Wentian. The rush of impact to their hearts was also exceedingly great when they personally witnessed the fall of three ascendants. These were characters on the same tier as them, and the Ouyang Ancestor was even stronger in comparison. Right now, they no longer treated Qin Wentian as an ordinary junior. To this young man, Grand Xia was simply too small for him.
Ouyang Kuangsheng turned, facing the experts from his clan. A hint of resolution flashed through his eyes, it was apparent that he already had a decision in mind.
"For the position of the clan leader of the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan, I won't assume it." A single sentence from Ouyang Kuangsheng instantly caused the hearts of his clan members to clench as their countenances turned somewhat unsightly to behold. However, they only heard Ouyang Kuangsheng continue saying, "What all of you said was right. The blood in my veins flows with the blood of our Ouyang Aristocrat Clan. I don't wish to pursue the matters in the past of how the clan treated me. Today, since all three of the ascendants are already dead, I don't wish for anyone to harbor hatred in their hearts. Let all grudges end from henceforth, and for those who are still alive, no matter how you treated me in the past, I, Ouyang Kuangsheng will forgive and forget. As for the position of the clan leader, I want to leave it to my grandfather."
Although Ouyang Kuangsheng still felt an air of vengeance in his heart, he understood that no matter if it was for his grandparents, or parents, they had no way to completely sever their relationship with the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan. Although he hated many in his clan, there were also quite a few who treated him well. These people were the reason that led to his decision not to let the entire Ouyang Aristocrat Clan be decimated today.
However, he wouldn't be so naive as to believe that everything was settled. Power determined everything and power had to be held alone. He had already experienced the coldness of reality earlier and from now onwards the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan will continue existing with the might from his brother Qin Wentian but the authority and power would all be in the hands of his closest kin. For this point, he was incomparably determined. He won't pursue those who mistreated him before, but washing their hands of authority and power was only to be expected.
"Good. Seeing that you have made your decision, we too feel gratified in our hearts." The experts of the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan heaved a sigh of relief. After experiencing the rollercoaster ride of life's ups and downs, their state of heart had already transformed. Right now, they only hoped that Ouyang Kuangsheng who had such a good relationship with Qin Wentian would be able to lead them to glory in this era. And as for the hatred and grudges of the past, burying all of them was the best choice.
"Clean up the mess. Kuangsheng, how about proceeding with your wedding with Jiang Ting? What does the two seniors of the Jiang Clan think of this?"
"Naturally." The two ascendants of the Jiang Clan nodded their heads. "Being able to see Jiang Ting's happiness, also makes us happy in our hearts."
"Hypocrites." Everyone cursed in their hearts yet none dared to speak it out. Right now, Qin Wentian turned his gaze onto everyone present as he smiled, "Taking advantage of my brother's Ouyang Kuangsheng's wedding today, I wish to announce a piece of news as well. I, Qin Wentian, am the leader of the Azure Faction, the true palace lord of the Azure Emperor Palace. And in that case, there's no longer a need for the Azure Emperor Palace of the Azure Continent to continue existing. You either submit, or you vanish. All of you can return now and spread the news to your sect. Make your decision fast."
The hearts of the crowd trembled, after the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan fell from the list of transcendent powers, was the name of the Azure Emperor Palace of the Azure Continent was soon going to be removed as well? Replacing them would be the hidden Azure Factions under the Azure Emperor back then, with all glory reinstated.
Upon hearing Qin Wentian's words, Fairy Qingmei's eyes flickered with a smile while Old Xing trembled with emotions. Has this day finally arrived? Qin Wentian controlling the Azure Emperor Palace, he has not only reinstated the glory of the Azure Emperor back then but has even further surpassed it.
Re-establishing the Azure Emperor Palace was only the first step. All of them knew that Qin Wentian's target was the reunification of Grand Xia!
Regarding this point, those from the Mystical Maiden Sect knew as well. Sadly, they could only sigh in their hearts. Since they have already missed the opportunity, there would no longer be another.
"There's one more thing. If there are people from the Pill Emperor Hall present today, please return and relay this back to your sect. I once said that I would level the Pill Emperor Hall to the ground one day. The Pill Emperor Hall can slowly wait for my arrival." Qin Wentian's voice rang out in the air, causing yet another burst of commotion among the crowd. Was the name of the Pill Emperor Hall about to be removed from the list of transcendent powers as well?
This young man who just returned, what kind of violent storm would he stir up in the Grand Xia Empire?!
