Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Qin Wentian and Mo Qingcheng stood on the stage, facing each other. Both their eyes flickered with a radiant smile as they slowly walked forward together, hand in hand, staring at everyone who had come by to attend their wedding.
"Wentian, do you want to begin now" At this moment, Qin Chuan asked.
"A little while longer." Qin Wentian smiled. There was still many people who hadn't arrived yet.
And as expected, even at this moment, several silhouettes could be seen flying through the air, heading in this direction.
Rows after rows of figure could be seen, belonging to different factions of power. The aura radiating from them were extremely powerful, but as they arrived above the red carpet, they too descended from the air and called out a greeting.
"Grand Xia's transcendent power: the Venerate Heaven Sect of Ginkou Continent offer their congratulations."
"Grand Xia's transcendent power: the Shi Clan of Ginkou Continent offer their congratulations"
"Grand Xia's transcendent power: the Hua Clan from Moon Continent offer their congratulations."
"Grand Xia's transcendent power..."
Voices rang out unceasingly, echoing through the air, startling the entire Emperor Star Academy, and even the entire Royal Capital of Chu.
The ascendants of the transcendent powers of Grand Xia all arrived.
Up ahead, numerous figures could be seen walking on the red carpet towards the ceremonial stage. Their gazes were all fixed on a silhouette on the stage, and naturally it was none other than the young man who had the ability to suppress the transcendent powers of Grand Xia to such an extent.
Qin Wentian stood on the stage as his calm gaze surveyed the crowd. He then took a step forward and smiled, "Wentian truly feels gratified in his heart that all of you seniors are able to make it for my wedding."
Yet everyone was coldly smiling in their hearts; although they didn't dare to express it when they heard Qin Wentian. Only old man Tianji was sincerely smiling when he stared at Qin Wentian. In the past, he had observed the rise of the demon star and knew long ago that the skies of Grand Xia would be changing. After which in the Heavenly Fate Rankings, he guessed that the person the demon star was symbolizing was none other than Qin Wentian, this young man was destined to raise waves and overturn Grand Xia. And indeed, not long later, everything came true. Nobody would be able to stand in his way to reunify Grand Xia.
"How could we miss palace lord Qin's invitation? After hearing palace lord Qin wanted to announce how to deal with us during the date of the wedding, how could we even dare to miss this? Although all of us don't have the talent of palace lord Qin, we are after all, leaders of our own power in Grand Xia. If palace lord Qin has something to say, please take note of this point, how can we as leaders live under someone's mercy." The countenance of the Shi Ancestor was sharp. This time around, the gathered ascendants numbered more than the time when they tried to kill Qin Wentian.
Other than the transcendent powers who agreed to follow Qin Wentian, each and every ascendant from Grand Xia was here today. This was Qin Wentian's plan, sending out invitations to every transcendent power. He didn't want anyone to be able to hide away from this tribulation. What Qin Wentian wanted was very clear. The reunification of Grand Xia is a must, no one can be a stand alone power.
Qin Wentian stared at the Shi Ancestor as his countenance also sharpened. His eyes raked through the ascendants only to see they were all staring at him with hints of defiance and confidence in their eyes. This caused Qin Wentian to ponder, it seems like these ascendants hadn't learned their lesson yet. Or could it be they still have a trump card up their sleeves?
"According to heavenly fate, from this moment onwards, the Azure Emperor Palace shall govern all, becoming the regent power of Grand Xia, ruling over the various transcendent powers." Qin Wentian's words were steeped in coldness as his voice rumbled through the air. Staring at Qin Wentian's eyes, the hearts of those ascendants shook. They could faintly sense that Qin Wentian had grown even more terrifying than before. That pair of eyes could even penetrated the hearts of people, giving rise to fear in them.
"Qin Wentian, are you sure you want to do this?" The Wang Ancestor icily spoke. Their Wang Clan was unrivalled in the War Continent, able to hold their own against any power. How could they be willing to become a subordinate under the Azure Emperor Palace?
From now onwards, all other transcendent powers of Grand Xia would become the subjects of the Azure Emperor Palace?
The hearts of everyone in the Emperor Star Academy trembled. Although they had heard many rumors, but now being able to personally witness how domineering Qin Wentian was even when facing these top-tiered existences.
"Today, all of you should have arrived here right?" Qin Wentian coldly spoke.
The expressions of the ascendants stiffened, they didn't know what did Qin Wentian meant by that.
"Earlier the debt of when you guys wanted to assassinate me, I haven't taken that into consideration yet. Although I desire to reunify Grand Xia, I'm unwilling to weaken the strength of the transcendent powers. Since all of you are going to obstinately persist in going about things the wrong way, I can give you all two choices. Firstly, we settle the things in Grand Xia ourselves or secondly, we allow those from the Royal Sacred Region to participate as well.
Qin Wentian stared at the ascendants, "If you all choose the first choice, I won't borrow the power of the experts from the Royal Sacred Region. But if you all choose the second choice, I don't mind it as well. Tell me, what will your decision be?"
"Mhm?" The ascendants frowned, wasn't Qin Wentian heavily injured? Why would he be this confident?
His arrogant tone was as though Qin Wentian knew what their trump card was. But no matter what, Qin Wentian seemed to have absolute confidence, allowing them to choose what they want.
These ascendants came here in full confidence but now, a single sentence from Qin Wentian deflated and stunned them all. Nobody dared to reply to him."
"I have no issues with the reunification of Grand Xia. But I humbly request for the Venerate Heavens Sect to be excluded from this fight. We don't want to partake in any confrontation. If palace lord Qin dominates Grand Xia, my Venerate Heavens Sect is willing to submit. We have no wish for power and hope that palace lord Qin will be able to grant us a position of peace and neutrality." Old man Tianji stated. His words causing the countenances of the other ascendants to be extremely unsightly. The Venerate Heavens Sect was one of the strongest transcendent powers in Grand Xia, yet now they were saying that they are fine with submission?
"Fine. After Grand Xia is reunified, the Azure Emperor Palace shall govern all. The Venerate Heavens Sect of Ginkou will become a place of knowledge and teachings, selecting talents to be nurtured from all over Grand Xia. Your former responsibilities of maintaining the ranking boards shall remain as well, would senior be agreeable to these terms?" Qin Wentian stared at old man Tianji as he asked.
"We are." Old man Tianji smiled.
Qin Wentian nodded to old man Tianji. He knew that the Venerate Heavens Sect had never tried to harm him before despite the overwhelming pressure exerted by the various powers in the past. He naturally had no wish to make things difficult for them.
The countenances of the other ascendants were all exceedingly ugly to behold. In fact, quite a few of them felt their hearts wavering, the Venerate Heavens Sect actually had such a good position by giving in? What position would Qin Wentian give them if they submitted to him as well?
But most probably, they wouldn't have such an opportunity any longer. Before them, the Thousand-Jue Alliance, Jiang Clan and Mystic Moon Sect were all in the queue already. It wouldn't be their turn even if they submitted now.
"Since you all are unwilling to take a stance, just follow my rules then. The transcendent powers of Grand Xia have all arrived and from now onwards, the Azure Emperor Palace shall govern all. Is there anyone who is unwilling to comply?" Qin Wentian's eyes swept through the crowd, staring at them. The expressions of the ascendants were even more unsightly now. The Wang Ancestor spoke, "All of us will never agree. The Azure Emperor Palace doesn't have the qualifications to govern Grand Xia."
Qin Wentian walked down the stage, advancing step by step towards the Wang Ancestor. The entire atmosphere turned heavy as the gazes of everyone were fixated on Qin Wentian.
It was rumored that just a little while ago, when the ascendants of Grand Xia banded together, he had already frightened them away. That scene seemed to be destined to repeat itself today and further more on that day, Qin Wentian was heavily injured. But now, he was fully recovered and filled with vitality.
The ascendants couldn't help but to take a few step backs. They actually simply stood there when they saw Qin Wentian walking towards the Wang Ancestor. As an ascendant, the peak existences in Grand Xia, there were actually none that dared to act against Qin Wentian.
"Are you unwilling?" Qin Wentian soared into the air, standing above the Wang Ancestor as his countenance turned incomparably cold.
"Yes. All of us are unwilling." The Wang Ancestor glared at Qin Wentian. Right now, the other ascendants all finally moved to the side of the Wang Ancestor, indicating that they were all of the same mind.
"Very well." Qin Wentian's voice was emotionless. A third eye appeared in the center of his brows, and just a single glance from it caused the Wang Ancestor to fall into a dreamscape. In here, he was the only one facing off against Qin Wentian. There were no others with him.
"This already isn't the first time you provoked me. Before this, I didn't even pay you back for how you threatened my family. Since you want to be the first person who stands out for them all, I shall grant it to you." Qin Wentian's voice directly sounded out in the Wang Ancestor's mind. After which, a fearsome torrent of destructive energy gushed towards him.
The Wang Ancestor used his finger and stabbed towards the center of his brows, wanting the pain to bring him out of the dreamscape. Yet he discovered that no matter what he did, he was unable to extricate himself out from the dream.
"You broke through?" The Wang Ancestor paled. Since he had no way to break the dreamscape, this meant that Qin Wentian's dream will had already surpassed his imagination.
"Yes." Qin Wentian didn't see the need to hide things; but his answer caused the expression on the Wang Ancestor's face to turn into something resembling dead ashes.
"The Wang Clan of War Continent is finished." Qin Wentian waved his hands. The torrent of destructive energy expanded, blotting out the sky and manifested a storm of wind that permeated the entire atmosphere in the dreamscape. This caused the Wang Ancestor to feel a sense of despair. After Qin Wentian's breakthrough, he had no way to resist him at all."
The Wang Ancestor directly fell over dead, disintegrating into dust that got scattered about by the wind.
The entire Emperor Star Academy went silent. The Wang Ancestor actually didn't even have the strength to resist. The other ascendants watched on dumbstruck, unable to believe what was happening.
All of them turned pale. They were all musing silently, why isn't that person appearing yet?
"Anyone else who doesn't wish to comply?" Qin Wentian stared down from the sky, his voice reverberating through the air in an overwhelmingly dominant manner.
At this moment, Qin Wentian suddenly raised his head as he stared at the horizon.
"Qin Wentian, aren't you very brazen?" An arrogant voice echoed out as Qin Wentian's lip curled into a cold smile. Has he finally appeared? He has been waiting for this person for a long time.
There weren't many who had the interest or inclinations to observe things in this desolate land of Grand Xia, but Jun Yu was one of those who would. How could he not know about the destruction of the Pill Emperor Hall?
Today, he arrived. And he didn't come alone. Beside him were several experts from the Royal Sacred Sect. Their eyes were all filled with an intense rage and coldness when they stared in Qin Wentian's direction.
"You've come." Qin Wentian stared at Jun Yu, not feeling the least bit surprised. Early today, he had already received a piece of news from the Medicine Sovereign.
Back then within the Royal Sacred Sect, the Sacred Emperor stated that the matters of the younger generations should be handled by themselves. What status did the Sacred Emperor have? He naturally wouldn't go back on his words. Qin Wentian killed Xia Sheng but that to him was because Xia Sheng was useless. How could he be bothered over the death of a mere member of his sect?
However, although the Sacred Emperor couldn't be bothered, it didn't mean that the others in the Royal Sacred Sect wouldn't be. In addition to that, after Qin Wentian left, there was another maiden that threatened their Royal Sacred Sect. Somebody must be made to answer for everything that has happened!
"Qin Wentian let me tell you something. The Medicine Sovereign won't be able to come to your wedding today." Jun Yu sneered.
"I know." Qin Wentian's countenance was extremely calm. The news which the Medicine Sovereign sent over had already stated clearly that there were experts from the Royal Sacred Sect stationed at the outside of the Medicine Sovereign Valley. They didn't do anything, not giving the Medicine Sovereign any reason to act. They only had one purpose in mind, they didn't want the Medicine Sovereign to leave the Medicine Sovereign Valley!
"Huh?" Jun Yu furrowed his brows. Qin Wentian knew about this? Did the Medicine Sovereign contact him? But why was he still so confident? The experts Jun Yu brought today could be said to be extremely powerful, they had even made preparations to face off against the Human Emperor, Ye Qingyun.
"Tap, tap tap..." At this moment, a light sound echoed out in the air, it was the sound of a walking staff tapping on the ground. The crowd turned their gazes towards the noise, but when they saw a cripple making his way forward, expressions of bewilderment could be seen in all their eyes.
Qin Wentian also turned his gaze over. But the instant his eyes landed on that figure, his heart pounded violently as his entire person felt as though he was struck by lightning. His eyes turned red as he stared straight at that person, his body trembled slightly, caused by his emotions!
Translator Note: The identity of this mysterious visitor should be pretty obvious right? xDD Anyone wanna guess?
