Chapter 678: AGM 678 - Killing Their Way Over
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Since the ascendants of Grand Xia had arrived in Chu, Fairy Qingmei and the rest naturally made haste to there as well.
Right now in the Mo Residence, Fairy Qingmei, Old Xing, the old matriarch and leader of Mystic Moon Hall as well as vice palace lord Chu Lanjiang, a total of five ascendants were present.
When they stepped into the Mo Residence, everyone in there were taken aback by their overpowering auras. Although they were simply standing there, the power radiating from them was apparent and none dared to match their gazes.
Everyone in the Mo Residence were filled with trepidation. Old Man Mo personally showed up, yet he was also extremely nervous. He didn't know who these characters are.
Only after Mo Qingcheng appeared did everyone feel better. The five of them exchanged greetings with Mo Qingcheng as Fairy Qingmei then asked, "How's the palace lord now?"
"He's resting." Mo Qingcheng replied. "Let's enter before we continue."
"Right." Fairy Qingmei smiled. When she stared at Mo Qingcheng's bearing, she was involuntarily reminded of Qing`er. Both of them were absolute beauties, no wonder that fellow Qin Wentian couldn't bear to part with either of them.
Those in the Mo Residence were stunned once more when they learnt of the truth - these five ascendants were actually Qin Wentian's subordinates.
"I heard that the situation in Chu now is extremely chaotic, the other ascendants of the various powers have also arrived in Chu." After entering Mo Qingcheng's courtyard, those of the Mo Residence immediately went to prepare a banquet for them.
"Why don't we bring the palace lord away?" Fairy Qingmei continued.
Mo Qingcheng shook her head, "He's afraid that it might implicate others and refuses to leave. Don't worry about this matter, I have my ways to resolve this."
Fairy Qingmei stared at Mo Qingcheng, her mist-like eyes flashed with a resplendent glow before nodding with a smile, "Since palace mistress has already spoken, we will naturally believe so. Do we just wait here for now?"
"Yes, just wait here for now. They should arrive soon." Mo Qingcheng calmly replied. Although Mo Qingcheng said that she was confident, Fairy Qingmei and the others couldn't help but feel worry in their hearts. Would they be able to escape unscathed this time around?
And just like what Qin Wentian had predicted, the other ascendants of Grand Xia chose to kill their way over. Since they had already hired the Darkshadow Sovereign to assassinate him, they might as well go all the way to ensure his death. There was no longer a path of retreat for them.
Even before they personally arrived, streams of terrifying auras already engulfed the Mo Residence. Everyone in the residence were trembling. Mo Qingcheng soared into the air with Fairy Qingmei and the others as they watched the enemy ascendants flying over.
Over ten Celestial Phenomenon Ascendants, gathered from all the transcendent powers of Grand Xia, descended onto the Mo Residence. An overwhelming pressure enveloped every inch of the Mo Residence, shaking those inside to their very cores as they stared at the ascendants in the air.
Feelings of complication flooded their hearts, was the Mo Residence finished?
"As expected, the lot of you came here too." The ascendants' eyes flashed with coldness upon seeing Fairy Qingmei and the rest. And just like what they anticipated, Qin Wentian was still in the Mo Residence, it appears that he was currently recuperating, hoping to recover from his injuries.
"What is your purpose in coming to my Mo Residence?" Mo Qingcheng stared at them as she asked.
"Your residence?" The Greencloud Sovereign was as though he heard the funniest joke in the world. Could it be that Mo Qingcheng didn't know what the current situation was?
"Mo Qingcheng, Qin Wentian indiscriminately massacred transcendent powers of Grand Xia. Today, all of us banded together because of justice, and our purpose is to remove this poisonous tumor of Grand Xia. Since everyone in the Mo Residence is implicated in this, all of you shall die." The Shi Ancestor coldly spoke.
"I urge that you all scram now. I dare to guarantee if there's a single case of injury or death in my Mo Residence today, blood shall flow as thick as the rivers in Grand Xia soon after. No matter what sect or what clan you are, it shall all be razed to the ground." Mo Qingcheng's voice was glacial, the frost in her eyes was so cold that it caused even the ascendants to shiver in their hearts.
"Are you trying to threaten us?" The Wang Ancestor laughed coldly.
"Threatening you?" Mo Qingcheng stared at the Wang Ancestor. "This entire Grand Xia is termed as a land of desolation by those in the Royal Sacred Region, so desolate to the extent that none among them are willing to step into here. Any singular power in the Royal Sacred Region can effortlessly dominate the entirety of Grand Xia. My husband Qin Wentian wished for the reunification of Grand Xia simply because, a fragmented Grand Xia is too weak. So weak that it's pitiable, that any outsiders can simply crush it if they find it within their interests to ever come here. The two of us returned from the Royal Sacred Region alone because of our wedding. Hence, we didn't bring any experts from our sects here. If not, do you think that you would qualify to be so brazen in front of me with your low cultivation bases?"
As Mo Qingcheng spoke, her gaze roamed through the crowd. "Or could it be that you all believed that because the Pill Emperor Hall is destroyed, that once arrogant Jun Yu of the Royal Sacred Sect who is the disciple of an elder-level character would appear? And also, I wonder if any of you here are from the Hua Clan? Currently Hua Taixu is already a member of the Core Faction of the Royal Sacred Region. If your sights are still limited just to Grand Xia, that would truly be too disappointing."
The old ancestor of the Hua Clan froze. Hua Taixu became a member of the Core Faction of the Royal Sacred Sect? He didn't know exactly how impressive the Core Faction was, but from the tone of Mo Qingcheng, the Core Faction seemed to be pretty strong even in the perspective of the entire Royal Sacred Sect.
"Is what you said true?" The Hua Ancestor questioned.
"Hua Taixu and Qin Wentian both stepped into the Immortal Martial Realm of the Royal Sacred Region. Qin Wentian was ranked first while Hua Taixu and another genius were both ranked second, hence they received invites to become members of the Core Faction of the Royal Sacred Sect. Right now, Hua Taixu's status is much higher compared to Jun Yu. You can choose to believe my words or not, I will simply say so much today. If you all leave now, I'm still willing to grant you an invitation to my wedding with Qin Wentian and you would naturally understand everything then. As for the matter you are all worried about, the reunification of Grand Xia shall happen one way or another. However, Wentian does not seek to destroy all the current transcendent powers but if you all still continue with your madness, don't blame us. And let me give you a final warning. If you guys still refuse to retreat today, there won't be any more room to save this situation. Even if you all succeeded in killing me and Qin Wentian, each and every transcendent power of Grand Xia shall join us in death."
Each and every word of Mo Qingcheng was extremely sharp. The ascendants of the transcendent powers were all dumbstruck by her words, and were speechless for a long time. They were all contemplating what she had said.
Given Mo Qingcheng's current demeanor, it was extremely probable that she had a very strong backer in the Royal Sacred Region. And since the second-ranked Hua Taixu had already become a member of the Core Faction of the Royal Sacred Sect, what about the top ranker Qin Wentian? Is there even still a need to say anything more?
Only after hearing Mo Qingcheng's words did everyone in the Mo Residence understand how powerful Qin Wentian truly was. Qin Wentian also wished to reunify Grand Xia.
"Don't be fooled by her words. She would say these today because she knew that the combined might of their ascendants are weaker than us. Don't forget how domineering Qin Wentian was earlier, and if we don't seize this opportunity to finish him off, there won't be a second chance." The Wang Ancestor icily stated. These were all old freaks who had lived for countless years, how could they trust people so easily or be frightened by mere words?
"Now, we are in an advantageous position. If we wait for Qin Wentian to recover, that might no longer be the case." The Greencloud Sovereign also icily continued, their words instantly shook the other ascendants awake. Yes, they were truly stunned by Mo Qingcheng's words, but the Wang Ancestor and Greencloud Sovereign also made sense. Mo Qingcheng would say that because she knew they were weaker than them, and today, was the best opportunity to destroy Qin Wentian.
"Why are you all still not coming out?" At this moment, the Shi Ancestor coldly commented. The other ascendants had no hints of surprise or shock on their faces, they long had already sensed that there were people hiding in the shadows.
And indeed, as the sound of his voice faded, more people appeared here.
"Jiang Clan, Thousand-Jue Alliance. Are you two here to join our coalition?" The Wang Ancestor stared at the newcomers. These people were the ascendants from the Jiang Clan and the Thousand-Jue alliance. Right now, the top-tier existence of every power in Grand Xia gathered in this remote and small country of Chu, causing the attention of everyone in Grand Xia to be focused here.
"Our allegiance was already sealed in the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan. Are the two of you having second thoughts now?" Fairy Qingmei asked. Ouyang Kuangsheng and Jiang Ting was already wedded. By rights, the Jiang Clan should be on their side but who didn't know how treacherous the human heart could be? Especially in this situation where they were at an obvious disadvantage.
Right now, the two ascendants of the Jiang Clan felt extremely complicated. Back then although Qin Wentian said he wouldn't hold it against them and they could be friends, they didn't really have any deep dealings with each other in reality. They understood that Qin Wentian still had some ill intent towards their Jiang Clan; after all back then, it was the Jiang Clan who agreed to marry Jiang Ting to Ouyang Aristocrat Clan, forming an alliance with them. If they wished to get rid of this ill intent, this was a perfect opportunity. They had personally seen for themselves Qin Wentian's strength and talent and if Grand Xia was truly reunified once more, those who followed Qin Wentian now would naturally be granted power over a part of Grand Xia.
However, if they stand on Qin Wentian's side today, it would be extremely dangerous. After all, risk equates rewards, right now everything depended on their choice.
"Naturally. Back then in the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan, we were already allies. Now that palace lord Qin is in trouble, how can our Jiang Clan sit on the fence?" One of the Jiang Clan ascendant spoke, his words caused the countenances of the other transcendent powers to turn unsightly. They then turned their gaze onto the ascendants from the Thousand-Jue Alliance, "How about the two of you?"
"Palace lord Qin is a fifth-jue elder of my alliance. Although he had never utilized the authority of a fifth-jue elder before, he's still a guest elder of our Thousand-Jue Alliance. Now that all of you want to deal with him, our alliance would naturally be on his side." The two ascendants of the Thousand-Jue Alliance smiled. And as the sound of their voice faded, the countenances of the other ascendants grew even more unsightly than before.
Right now, there were already nine ascendants on the side of Qin Wentian.
"Mo Qingcheng hereby thanks seniors for your help. After this matter, I Mo Qingcheng dares guarantee that the Jiang Clan and Thousand-Jue Alliance would definitely have a territory of their own in the future Grand Xia." Mo Qingcheng softly spoke. Although these words of hers were simple, it eased the hearts of these four ascendants. After all, why did they take the risk to help Qin Wentian? Wasn't it simply because of a promise for future benefits?
"Do all of you truly intend to help the scourge of Grand Xia?" The Shi Ancestor icily spoke, as a number of ascendants blasted out their auras.
"Everyone." At this moment, the Hua Ancestor suddenly spoke. When the gazes of those present here turned to him, he slowly continued, "For this matter, my Hua Clan shall no longer take part. I bid you all farewell."
After speaking, he actually directly left with another ascendant of the Hua Clan. Their actions caused the rest of their party to turn ashen. Their enemies got stronger while their own party became weaker.
But luckily, they still possessed an advantage.
"KILL!" The Shi Ancestor icily commanded. Since this matter had already reached this state, there was no longer a way to resolve this.
"Kill Qin Wentian and all their hopes shall be shattered!" The voice of the Greencloud Sovereign was ice cold. Everyone nodded their heads, the reason why the Thousand-Jue Alliance and the Jiang Clan would take this risk was because Qin Wentian was simply too outstanding. They didn't wish to become vessels of others after Grand Xia was reunified. Hence, they chose to gamble, placing all their hopes onto Qin Wentian, on the shoulders of that young man who had created so many miracles!
