Chapter 671: Threaten
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Qin Wentian stared ahead. This demon sword was truly proud indeed, this was a point which he knew long ago. Back then when he tried to pull out the sword, without using his blood to feed it, it was basically impossible. This demon sword was even more arrogant than humans. Qin Wentian had never met such arrogance in humans before, let alone a sword.
"This sword is extraordinary, it should have a shocking origin," Qin Wentian mused. If it's origin was ordinary, how would it dare to resent that the heavens are too low?
"Don't worry, I won't dishonor you. However, do you intend to follow me like that in this form?" Qin Wentian asked in a faint voice. The demon sword was a thousand meters tall. How can he wield it easily?
"Although I'm willing to be used by you, I won't initiate lending my power to you. I want to see what capabilities you have to back up the arrogant words you spoke today." From the body of the demon sword, the sword qi seemed as though it could break the dome of heaven. A shrill whistling rang out as the terrifying destructive maelstrom expanded, ravaging this entire area. Countless experts of the Pill Emperor Hall raised their head and stared at the incoming catastrophe. There was only despair in their eyes.
An intense beam of light broke through space, Qin Wentian suddenly discovered that the thousand meter gigantic sword transformed into a smaller version of about three feet in length. A whitish glow illuminated the skies, filled with so much demonic qi that it seemed like a sword of evil.
This sword was exceptionally fiendish in nature, it shot through the air, directly piercing through the buildings of the Pill Emperor Hall that still remained standing. Wherever it passed by, everything collapsed into ruins. The entire Pill Emperor Hall was completely destroyed, becoming dust, dissipating away in the wind.
Only the blood-soaked demon sword exuding a white glow remained flying in that storm of endless dust.
Qin Wentian glanced at the demon sword as a fiendish smile played on his lips. After which he slowly stepped out, walking towards the place where the Pill Emperor died. As he approached, those lucky survivors all retreated, nobody dared to be near him. An energy of the void permeated this area, evidently the Pill Emperor has long prepared his escape route. With the void boat, if it wasn't for the demon sword unleashing its might, Qin Wentian would have no way to catch the Pill Emperor.
Qin Wentian kept the void boat and went on to retrieve the Pill Emperor's interspatial ring. Nobody dared to touch these things, Qin Wentian even dared to destroy the Pill Emperor Hall, who would dare to snatch the spoils of his victory? Unless someone feels that he is already tired of living.
After that, Qin Wentian moved to where the demon sword was. The light it emanated was now retracted, completely dimmed losing its luster, appearing as though it was nothing but an ordinary sword that quietly stood there, embedded in the ground.
Qin Wentian stretched his hands out and pulled out the sword. He then gazed up at the sky and with a powerful stomp, he soared upwards, vanishing completely in an instant.
The crowd lifted their heads, staring at that trajectory of the vanishing silhouette as the waves in their heart gradually calmed. But when their gazes returned to the destroyed Pill Emperor Hall, their hearts involuntarily started to shiver again.
The day when he returns, shall be the day of judgement for the Pill Emperor Hall. Now, the day of judgement has descended, another transcendent power of Grand Xia has been leveled flat to the ground. Two ascendants died in battle and almost all the disciples of the Pill Emperor Hall were dead, killed by the power of the demon sword.
This sword is now out in the world, controlled by Qin Wentian. Nobody knew how many storms of blood this sword would cause.
"The Pill Emperor has been destroyed, becoming history..." Even now, there were some who still couldn't believe their eyes. Everything felt as though it was a dream.
The Pill Emperor Hall that stood tall in the Moon Continent for thousands of years had been destroyed just like this.
"Ruanyu, you knew that he was Qin Wentian?" Shu Ruanyu's friend shivered as she asked. No wonder before this, Shu Ruanyu kept looking at him. So it turned out that this young man was none other than the person who kidnapped her before, the young man whose name shook Grand Xia.
Shu Ruanyu bitterly smiled, she could only tell herself that in this world, nothing was permanent. If back then she knew that he would have such achievements today, what would she have done differently after she was kidnapped?
More and more people gathered in front of the Pill Emperor Hall. When they stared at the once imposing structure only to see nothing but dust, they were all speechless for a long period of time.
The news of the Pill Emperor Hall's destruction soon spread and shocked all of Grand Xia. The various transcendent powers couldn't calm down. They felt a sense of threat from Qin Wentian.
Just flipping his palms was sufficient to destroy the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan, the Pill Emperor Hall and gain control of the Azure Emperor Palace. Such strength was very hard not to be feared by the various transcendent powers. After this incident, the ascendants gathered once more in an alliance as they set off to the Azure Emperor Palace, wanting to negotiate with Qin Wentian.
Soon, the Azure Emperor Palace received a piece of news. Three days later, the ascendants of the various transcendent powers will descend to the Azure Emperor Hall once more, seeking an audience with Palace Lord Qin Wentian. They hoped that this time around, Qin Wentian would give face and meet with them.
Instantly, the situation in Grand Xia became chaotic. The other transcendent powers all seemed to be in an alliance to resist Qin Wentian. This made everyone sigh as they marveled at Qin Wentian's strength and prowess. In these few thousand years, only he had the ability to force the other transcendent powers to behave in this matter.
In the blink of an eye, three days passed. Outside the Azure Emperor Palace, the ascendants from the various powers descended once more. This time, their alliance was even stronger than the one that came to visit before.
This time around, Qin Wentian was present. Upon feeling the auras of the experts, he led Fairy Qingmei and the rest out of the palace, as his gaze landed onto those ascendants who visited.
The white-robed young man stood with his hands clasped behind his back as a simple and unadorned sword sheath was strapped behind his back. His white robes fluttered in the wind as the ascendants stared at Qin Wentian, feeling somewhat unsettled in their hearts. He was truly as young as rumored, yet he already had the power to turn Grand Xia topsy-turvy.
"A hero of the younger generation, palace lord Qin's talent truly makes me perspire." A voice drifted over. Qin Wentian stared at the person who spoke. He was extremely calm as he replied, "Is there any matter as to why all of you are looking for me?"
"Qin Wentian, recently because of your actions, you stirred up unease all over Grand Xia. The death of the three ascendants of the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan, the destruction of the Pill Emperor Hall, the submission of the Azure Emperor Palace. What is your true desire?" The old ancestor of the Wang Clan stated, his countenance radiating sharpness.
Qin Wentian's eyes shifted onto him, "And what does that have to do with you?"
The Wang Ancestor's countenance stiffened before coldly snorting, "Indeed, the young are reckless. However in Grand Xia, you still don't have the qualifications to be so arrogant yet.
A fiend-like cold smile appeared on Qin Wentian's face as he sarcastically stared at the Wang Ancestor. "Who do you think you are? Are you even fit to talk to me in this manner?"
"You..." The Wang Ancestor froze. He didn't expect that after so many ascendants came here today, Qin Wentian would still be so arrogant.
"Qin Wentian." The Shi Ancestor shouted. "The transcendent powers of Grand Xia has always lived together in relative harmony. Your actions were too over the top."
"Too over the top?" Qin Wentian swept his glance over to the Shi Ancestor. "In that case, do you mean I should forget the things the Pill Emperor Hall did to me in the past?"
"You all are truly shameless enough." Fairy Qingmei couldn't bear it any more as she sarcastically remarked. In Grand Xia, it has always been a dog-eat-dog world. Which of these transcendent powers didn't rise up to where they were by devouring countless other powers? Yet today, they actually said Qin Wentian was causing unrest to Grand Xia? If they had enough strength, they would probably do things in a more ruthless manner compared to Qin Wentian.
In addition, up till now, Qin Wentian hadn't touched any unrelated powers. Regardless of the Pill Emperor Hall, Ouyang Aristocrat Clan, or the Azure Emperor Palace, all of these powers had a relation to him. He hasn't even stepped on the tails of these people yet and they were already all at his doorstep.
"Don't beat around the bush, what do all of you want?" Qin Wentian coldly asked.
"There can not be another storm in Grand Xia. Qin Wentian, given your talent why do you still need to remain in Grand Xia?" Shi Ancestor asked.
"You mean that I even need your permission to stay here?" Qin Wentian's eyes flashed with sharpness.
The Shi Ancestor shook his head, "That's not what I mean. We came here today to negotiate with you. There cannot be another transcendent power destroyed. I know that in the past, there were some who offended you, hence they are all willing to compensate."
"Bully when you are able to bully, but now since you don't have the strength to, you wish to compensate for your past actions?" The sect leader of the Mystic Moon Hall coldly laughed.
"This is already our greatest concession." The Shi Ancestor persuaded.
"And if I disagree?" Qin Wentian narrowed his eyes, staring at the Shi Ancestor.
"Hmph, if the news I received isn't wrong, you should be someone from Chu, that's under the administration of the Greencloud Pavilion right? Your return this time is for the wedding between you and Mo Qingcheng. Chu Country is your hometown, where your kin and good friends are all there." The cold voice of the Wang Ancestor rang out in the air.
As the sound of his voice faded, an incomparably violent aura erupted forth from Qin Wentian, as an intense demonic qi towered up into the skies, gushing towards the Wang Ancestor. His eyes turned incredibly fiend-like as his killing intent permeated the air.
The other ascendants all silently cursed the Wang Ancestor in their hearts. Was the Wang Ancestor trying to sabotage their efforts?
The Wang Ancestor felt his heart trembling when he felt that demonic qi as Qin Wentian turned his gaze over to him. However, he quickly stabilized himself and snorted coldly, looking Qin Wentian in his eye.
"The Ouyang Aristocrat Clan forced the bride of my brother to marry others, I killed the three culprits behind it and left the other members of the clan untouched. As for the Azure Emperor Palace, I didn't even kill a single person at all. The only transcendent power I truly destroyed is the Pill Emperor Hall. All of you should know my grudge with them is as deep as the ocean. I didn't even pursue your Wang Clan for the fact that your clan members tried to kill me numerous times back then. You said you are all here today to compensate for the grudges formed in the past yet now you are threatening me with my family members and closest friends?"
An intense coldness could be felt from Qin Wentian's words. Even if he desired to reunite Grand Xia, he didn't intend to accomplish this by large-scale massacre and would only want the various transcendent powers to submit, returning to the state of glory Grand Xia was back then when it was a whole empire.
But now, even when he hadn't intended to do anything to pursue the debt between him and the Wang Clan, the Wang Ancestor had already directly threatened him.
"No matter what I say today, if there's another incident in Grand Xia. You shoulder the consequences yourself." The voice of the Wang Ancestor was ice-cold.
"See them out." Qin Wentian swept his gaze over to the ascendants present as he icily replied.
"Everyone, please." Fairy Qingmei coldly stared at these people. The Wang Ancestor had actually investigated Qin Wentian's background. In that case, it was clear that he wasn't the only one who had these thoughts.
"Qin Wentian, are you sure you want to do this?" The Swordlord of Yan asked.
Qin Wentian just turned and departed, not bothering to reply. His actions caused the countenance of the Swordlord of Yan to turn incomparably cold. "Everyone, look at his damnable attitude, not even the slightest hint of cordiality."
"Let's leave." Many among the ascendants had murder in their eyes yet they dared not take any reckless actions. They all understood that if they failed to kill Qin Wentian, the consequences would be unimaginable!
