Chapter 670: Destruction of the Pill Emperor Hall
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
The blood-soaked demon blood radiated a crimson screen of light about a hundred-feet wide as a towering demonic qi rushed up into the skies. Just the sight of the crimson glimmering sword was enough to strike fear in the hearts of the spectators who were watching from far away.
Within the demon sword, a sigh echoed out. After which, a sonorous sword hum filled the air as the intensity of the sword might grew stronger in accordance to the brilliance of the light screen.
A few years ago, this white-robed young man transformed into a primordial great roc and used the demon sword to split the Pill Emperor Hall apart. After which, he left the sword embedded here yet no one else had succeeded in pulling it out. Now, he has returned and the act of him using his blood to feed the sword seemed as though he wanted to awaken it.
Such a scene caused everyone spectating outside to be deeply shocked. Shu Ruanyu dumbfoundedly watched the scene play out, as terrifying waves rose up in her heart. Without personally witnessing it, there was no way to tell how crazy this young man could be.
"STOP HIM!" The Pill Emperor howled. He and the other ascendant sped towards the direction where Qin Wentian was at.
They were filled with extreme trepidation towards Qin Wentian. There was no one like the Pill Emperor who had experienced personally the events of that year. There was also no one else other than him who knew of the terrifying power in the shadows that was supporting Qin Wentian. If it wasn't for the return of Jun Yu back then, they truly weren't willing to antagonize Qin Wentian. This was why they were willing to make a public apology and pay any price to settle the conflict and hatred between them. Sadly...Qin Wentian completely had no wish for a peaceful settlement.
The Pill Emperor was naturally afraid. A few years ago, Qin Wentian needed to transform into a primordial great roc before he could unleash a might equal to the peak of Heavenly Dipper, fighting against them with the demon sword. But right now, Qin Wentian's original strength without any augmentation to it was already sufficient to rival a Celestial Phenomenon Ascendant. If they allowed him to use this demon sword as well, the Pill Emperor didn't even dare to imagine the consequences.
Two constellations hung in the air, incredibly resplendent. The constellation of the Pill Emperor was a nine-colored flame that contained immense destructiveness within.
As for the constellation of that ancient elder, it was pitch-black in color. Black flames could be seen raining down from it and the stench of death permeated the atmosphere.
"DIE!" The Pill Emperor roared as his constellation manifested a flower of nine-colored flames, shooting through the air towards Qin Wentian.
It was as though Qin Wentian didn't even see that attack. After the thousand meter demon sword was entirely soaked in his blood, he could sense the humming of the demon sword. Other than sheer power, he could also feel its pride and arrogance.
"RISE!" Qin Wentian's countenance was solemn. The body of the sword vibrated incessantly, as it was pulled a little from the ground. Instantly, the crimson glow enveloping it engulfed everything as a terrifying sword might rose up into the sky, slamming into the nine-colored flame flower that was shooting down towards Qin Wentian. With a thunderous boom, the flame flower shattered in an explosion of brilliant light.
"What a terrifying sword qi." The Pill Emperor turned pale. The demon sword was still that demon sword from before. However, Qin Wentian was already much stronger compared to back then.
"KILL!" Qin Wentian's countenance flickered. Those experts that were inching closer to the Pill Emperor Hall abruptly stopped. The towering sword might directly penetrated their bodies as they fell to the ground one by one, so weak as though they were nothing but insects.
"In my eyes, your cultivation is the same as them, ordinary and weak. What qualifications do you have to fight against the immortals and demons of the nine heavens?" A voice rang out in Qin Wentian's mind. It was none other than the voice of the demon sword.
Back then, the Demonic Divinity Sacrificial Transformation Art was supposed to be irreversible. It was because the demon sword imparted the Immortal Vanquishing Swordplay to Qin Wentian before he could finally negate the effect of that art.
"The great dao also originated from a tiny insignificant spark of insight, let alone the immortals and demons of the nine heavens. You hated that the heavens are too low and hence you chose to remain here. But why not join and dance together with me?" Qin Wentian's voice was solemn and respect. Yet another destructive palm imprint blasted towards his way, this palm imprint was imbued with the energy of death, crackling with black flames as it zoomed towards Qin Wentian.
"Boom!" Qin Wentian stomped in the air. The robes he was wearing completely shredded as resplendent light enveloped his body, forming something akin to an armor. His physique grew larger, resembling a fiendgod and he threw his head back and howled before blasting out with a palm as the sound of thunder rumbled in the air, smashing against the death-energy palm imprint.
The palm imprint was completely neutralized. The crowd stared in dumbfounded amazement at the fiendgod body. Their hearts were numbed long ago, even without the demon sword, Qin Wentian's attack was enough to neutralize the attack of an ascendant? How powerful was he exactly?
The Pill Emperor and the ancient elder both turned ashen as they stared at the fiendgod-like body. Qin Wentian's body was shimmering with light, seemingly indestructible.
The two of them flanked Qin Wentian's left and right while their constellation were in the center. The nine-colored flame and black-flame repeatedly shot out, aiming for Qin Wentian. The scorching temperature created, baked this entire space.
"You learnt more immortal arts?" The demon sword upon noticing the aura Qin Wentian was exuding, sounded its voice out in his mind. After which, its tone became even more lofty. "I resent that heavens are too low hence I refuse to fly. So what even if you transformed into a true fiendgod?"
The arrogance in that voice towered up the sky, as though even fiendgods had no way to control it. Them using it would only dishonored it.
"Seems like I have overestimated you." Qin Wentian relinquished his hold on the demon sword, allowing it to sink back to the ground. He turned towards the flames of destruction barreling through the air towards him as he spoke with confidence, "Even without depending on your strength, I can still exterminate the Pill Emperor Hall. It's only that we met each other because of fate; you hated that the heavens are too low while I desired to combat the immortals and demons of the nine heavens. If we join forces, we should be able to break through this piece of sky. What's laughable is that you refuse to face facts. If one day when I soar up and stand at the apex of the nine heavens, why is there still a need for me to dance in the battlefield with you?"
As the sound of his voice faded, the power of Qin Wentian's blood thrummed as strands of his hair fluttered wildly in the wind. Behind him, a manifestation of a demon sovereign appeared.
His astral soul was unleashed. Qin Wentian inclined his head and stared at the skies only to see that instantly, an endless amount of astral light cascaded downwards. The armor of light enveloping him grew even more radiant as numerous astral warbeasts manifested, each radiating unexcelled might.
"Kill them all."
Qin Wentian calmly commanded as his summons began to rip through the tides of Pill Emperor Hall's experts. An incomparably sharp sword qi radiated from him, he lifted his palms and blast them outwards, opening a path using oppressive destruction, extinguishing both the flames used by the ascendants.
The experts of the Pill Emperor Hall naturally heard the words spoken by Qin Wentian earlier. They too, understood that the words spoken weren't for them but was for the demon sword instead. That sword was alive, akin to a demon. It could actually converse with Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian had his own pride as well. He doesn't need the demon sword and could solo against the ascendants of the Pill Emperor Hall. Since the demon sword refused to be wielded, then when one day when he stood at the apex, why was there even a need to still bring the sword along?
As the sound of Qin Wentian's voice faded, the sword qi from the demon sword grew even more terrifying as the whistling sound through the air got even shriller. It seems as though the demon sword had been enraged.
The countenances of the Pill Emperor and ancient elder grew incredibly unsightly. Qin Wentian's attack was so powerful, so powerful to the extent that it struck fear in their hearts. If Qin Wentian stepped into the Celestial Phenomenon Realm, how much more powerful would he be?
"Seal of Life and Death, Conjures Death!"
The ancient elder saw that Qin Wentian discarded the demon sword. This was the first time he mounted a direct attack towards Qin Wentian using innate techniques instead of his constellation. The rays of death, imbued with immense astral energy shot down the skies, aiming right for Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian's palms were no longer his ordinary human flesh, but was something of incredible toughness that was filled with an overwhelming destructive power. He howled in rage and stomped on the ground, bent on suppressing all immortals and demons. Numerous incarnations of him erupted out into being, all of them attacking at the same time, shattering the Seal of Life and Death. A countless number of palms unleashed with the power of the Illusory Demonforce, shot straight at the ancient elder.
Qin Wentian's overwhelming might came not only from the fusion of his true intents. His powerful physique and numerous Yuanfus, including the tyranny of his bloodline and high-grade immortal arts all played a part. Hence, the power generated from his attacks could said to have enough power to even topple the heavens. Ordinary peak-level Heavenly Dipper Sovereigns would never be able to emanate an aura like him. Even for ordinary first-level Celestial Phenomenon Ascendants, their auras weren't that much stronger compared to his.
Upon facing the attack unleashed by Qin Wentian, the energy of the ancient elder's constellation condensed in his palms as he blast them out, wanting to negate the attack. However, Qin Wentian's figure was like an apparition, with a thought, this place became his dreamscape. The ancient elder only saw Qin Wentian dashing towards him with the Scarlet Demon Halberd.
More incarnations then appeared. The ancient elder paled. He no longer had the strength to withstand such a strike.
"Swish!" He wanted to flee yet he only saw a beam of light slaughtering its way towards him. The sounds of piercing rang out as his body directly exploded after being struck by the halberd, turning into nothingness.
That ultimate attack was so fast that it was unfathomable. The Pill Emperor initially wanted to help but upon seeing the death of the ancient elder, the Pill Emperor's body went stiff. He drew in a deep breath. Although his strength was stronger compared to the ancient elder, Qin Wentian's might had already completely astounded him.
Casting a glance below, those astral warbeasts had already begun their slaughter.
Blood dyed the Pill Emperor Hall red. Even the sun in the skies seemed to be dyed red, everything was as he had prophesied before. The day when he returned, would be the day of judgement for the Pill Emperor Hall.
Qin Wentian slowly descended, standing on top of the demon sword. He then spoke, "Have you considered it? If you follow me, I will never dishonor you."
The sword hum grew even more intense as the gigantic demon sword vibrated. Large fissures continuously formed on the ground in its surroundings as an aura of destruction blasted out, forming a maelstrom that ravaged everything in this space. The doomsday of the Pill Emperor Hall is here.
"Chi..." The boundless sword qi swept over everything as a scene of complete annihilation played out. The buildings collapsed one after another, the experts within all died. This was a scene of total destruction.
The Pill Emperor turned white. His silhouette instantly soared up into the skies as a void spirit boat appeared under his legs, granting him unimaginable speed. This was a speed-type divine weapon which the Pill Emperor exchanged for. Even if he couldn't win in a battle, he could still use this to escape.
"Since you are so arrogant, I shall hold you to your words. In the future if you fail to triumph over the nine heavens, I shall slay you personally." A similarly arrogant voice resounded out in Qin Wentian's mind. The silhouette of the Pill Emperor had already vanished completely yet at this moment, a beam of light broke through the air and cleaved the void into two pieces. The Pill Emperor let out a scream of agony before he appeared somewhere in the horizon as his entire person was directly slashed into twain.
"Similar to how I just killed him." The voice of the demon sword rang out once more. Qin Wentian still stood arrogantly on the sword, as calm as ever. Countless experts of the Pill Emperor Hall witnessed the two halves of the Pill Emperor falling through the air. When they glanced at the destroyed Pill Emperor Hall, their bodies involuntarily began to shiver.
From today onwards, there will no longer be a Pill Emperor Hall in Grand Xia!
