Qin Chuan also saw that silhouette on the red carpet pathway. He abruptly stood up, his sudden actions caused those around him to have a strange expression on their faces. Who is this cripple exactly? To think that the reaction of both Qin Chuan and Qin Wentian would be this great.
"Uncle Black..." Beside Mo Qingcheng, Qin Yao mumbled to herself. Uncle Black was actually still alive, he even came here to attend Qin Wentian's grand wedding. It seems like Uncle Black had always been very concerned about Qin Wentian.
"Tap, tap, tap!"
The light sounds continued, Uncle Black was using a walking staff to support himself as he advanced towards the stage. Fairy Qingmei and the others initially wanted to block his path but when they turned and glanced at Qin Wentian for an instant, they could tell from the expression on his face that this person was somebody who meant alot to him.
And after that, the cripple with the walking staff simply continued his way until he walked up the stage. Everyone present here quietly watched on, and for some strange reason, the sound of the staff tapping on the ground seemed to have a magic power that would cause people to involuntarily listen to it.
Uncle Black walked to the front of Qin Wentian before coming to a halt. That hand of his wrinkled with age gently caressed Qin Wentian's face. That solemn and strict face of Uncle Black in Qin Wentian's memories had finally melted into a heartwarming smile filled with care and concern for him. Qin Wentian also smiled, his smile was like that of an innocent boy, extremely radiant from the depths of his heart.
This scene caused everyone to be astonished. Seems like the relationship of this cripple with Qin Wentian was closer than what everyone had imagined. If not, this cripple wouldn't have performed such an intimate gesture and even caused Qin Wentian to smile like that.
"You've grown up and you truly resemble your father. But there are still hints of childishness in you." Uncle Black smiled, causing wrinkles to appear on his face as he stared at the handsome face of his young charge.
Qin Wentian's heart trembled, there were so many things he wanted to say but he didn't know where to start from.
"Being able to see you getting married is truly wonderful. Looking at the two of you reminds me of your father and mother." Uncle Black pulled Qin Wentian along as he walked over to Mo Qingcheng. Staring at Mo Qingcheng, a satisfied smile appeared in his eyes as he laughed, "This little doll isn't bad, she matches you well."
Mo Qingcheng had never seen Uncle Black before but upon noting the interactions between them, she knew that their relationship must have been a very close one.
"Qingcheng, this is Uncle Black. He was the one who brought me up." Qin Wentian smiled. Only now did Mo Qingcheng understand their relationship. She bowed to Uncle Black as she greeted, "Qingcheng pays her respects to Uncle Black."
"Good, good. Although I didn't prepare anything today for your wedding, in the past, Qin Wentian's mother wanted me to pass a gift to her future daughter-in-law. I'm gifting you this on behalf of Madame." Uncle Black smiled. After which he placed the walking staff down on the floor and retrieved a brocade box. Just that box alone shimmered with resplendent light, one could tell that it was also an extremely valuable treasure.
"Open it, this is a gift Madame had prepared for you. I've always been keeping it on behalf and now, I can finally give it to its rightful owner." Uncle Black solemnly stated. Mo Qingcheng nodded her head, she knew that Qin Wentian was only a foster child of the Qin Residence. Since Uncle Black was the person who brought Qin Wentian up, it was only natural that he would be acquainted with Qin Wentian's parents. And since this gift was something her mother-in-law wanted to give her, how could she not accept it?
Stretching both her hands out, Mo Qingcheng just as solemnly, received the gift and opened it. The instant the lid of the box was opened, an incomparably blinding light shot out, attracting the attention of everyone in the crowd. Rich and diverse colored-glows illuminated the area where Mo Qingcheng was at, it was exceedingly dazzling.
Mo Qingcheng couldn't help but to close her eyes. When she opened her eyes again, she could see that there was an exceptionally gorgeous phoenix gown made from the real feathers of a phoenix lying within.
"How beautiful..." Mo Qingcheng stared at the gown as she sighed in admiration.
Qin Wentian was also feeling extremely moved. His eyes reddened and for a moment, it seemed as though he had even forgotten about the enemy ascendants. Right now in his eyes, there was only the gift his mother had prepared. This was the first time in his twenty-eight years of life that he felt the care of his mom. No matter where she was, she was still concerned about him.
"Qingcheng, why don't you try it out?" Qin Wentian smiled as he looked at her.
"Mhm." Mo Qingcheng nodded, as she took the phoenix gown out and draped it over her body. The instant this gorgeous gown was on Mo Qingcheng body, another beautiful multi-colored glow permeated the air. There was no wind yet the feathers on the gown were fluttering. In this instant, there was a marvelous and formless energy that lifted Mo Qingcheng up into air as a powerful will surged into her mind, imparting the words which her mother-in-law wanted to tell her.
Mo Qingcheng closed her eyes as the phoenix gown radiated its radiance. At this moment, her beauty was beyond stunning, she seemed so holy that even looking at her would be a blasphemy.
"How beautiful..." The hearts of many sighed in admiration. Mo Qingcheng's countenance was a perfect match with this long gown.
An instant later, Mo Qingcheng opened her eyes as a strange glow flashed within. After which, Qin Wentian only heard her murmuring, "Mother-in-law, thank you..."
As the sound of her voice faded, the long gown transformed, enveloping Mo Qingcheng's entire body as though it was made just for her. This gown also possessed the ability to transform itself into whatever the user desires.
With an intention of her will, a resplendent pair of phoenix wings appeared on the gown. At this instant, Mo Qingcheng completely resembled a descendant of the saint beast Phoenix, and appeared to be like an elegant princess of the Phoenix Clan. This made everyone speculate wildly, could it be that the gown was manufactured from feathers of a true phoenix? It was impossible right?!
Mo Qingcheng landed back on the stage as her wings folded before disappearing. She looked at Qin Wentian as the smile in her eyes grew even brighter. "Wentian, I like the gift mother-in-law prepared for me very much."
"Mhm." Qin Wentian was also very happy. He stared at Uncle Black only to see Uncle Black continuing, "Your father only left a single sentence for you. Regardless if one was mediocre or not, a real man would always stand upright and tall, able to support both heaven and earth and possessed an indomitable spirit with no guilt to his conscious. Just do what your heart tells you."
"I understand." Qin Wentian smiled. He had saw his parents before in the fragmented memories. He knew the origin of his name.
"Have you guys babbled enough?" At this moment, Jun Yu's voice drifted out, interrupting their conversation. To think that a cripple had wasted so much time, deliberately acting mysterious up on the stage.
Uncle Black slowly turned his gaze over. Right now, there were several silhouettes among the crowd that walked out at the same time. These people were all masked, with their real features obscured. Nobody knew who they were.
"The people from the Royal Sacred Sect, aren't you a little too impudent?" From the air, a thunderous voice boomed out as a row of figures descended. The man in the middle was clad in a luxurious robe with a crown on his head. He was none other than the Human Emperor. Ye Qingyun from ancient Ye."
"Foster father, you've come!" Qin Wentian called out.
"Mhm, Wentian. I've long already noticed the presence of this people. Hence, I too remained in the shadows. But you don't need to worry too much, I'm sure the Medicine Sovereign has already made preparations." Ye Qingyu descended onto the stage as he replied.
"Haha, little Ye, you even know about that?" Another voice rumbled the air. After which, a bright light flashed as two silhouettes directly appeared on the stage. It was none other than the Medicine Sovereign and that old man who had killed the elder-level character of the Sacred Royal Sect.
Jun Yu and the experts from the Royal Sacred Sect all froze when they saw this. They stared dumbfoundedly at the Medicine Sovereign as though they were witnessing an inconceivable thing.
"Medicine Sovereign, to think that you are actually able to make it here?" An expert of the Royal Sacred Sect stared at the Medicine Sovereign.
"Hmph." The Medicine Sovereign coldly regarded those from the Royal Sacred Sect as the cold light of a killing intent flashed in his eyes. "Seems like I've given you all too much face. You actually even dared to surround my Medicine Sovereign Valley."
"Medicine Sovereign, what do you want to do?" An expert of the Royal Sacred Sect icily stated.
"What I want?" The eyes of the Medicine Sovereign flashed with a glacial light. He shifted his gaze onto Uncle Black only to see Uncle Black sweeping his eyes over to the masked figures as he transmitted his voice to Qin Wentian. "Ever since you was born, other than I, this old cripple bringing you up, all of us old fellows have never done anything for you before. This was because we had to comply with the order your parents issued. A man must face his own troubles before he can become strong. All the difficulties and setbacks you faced were to temper you into a gem when you mature. If one day, you managed to breakthrough and become an immortal, we will tell you everything then. Because only then would you have proven yourself, proven that you have the capabilities to become a powerhouse. The you right now is still far from enough."
"But since today is the day of your grand wedding, even if your parents were to object, we will ignore them and help you out this once." The voice of Uncle Black rang out in Qin Wentian's mind. After which, his eyes flashed with sharpness as he emotionlessly stated, "Slaughter them all with no mercy."
At the sound of his voice faded, a terrifying light engulfed this space. In an instant, even the sky changed color as a storm brewed.
The countenances of those experts from the Royal Sacred Sect were all incredibly unsightly to behold. They quickly unleashed their constellations and soon after, resplendent glows covered this entire space.
And at this very moment, one of those masked figures rushed out. He waved his hands as a space-type constellation manifested, enveloping this entire area as a void hurricane started gusting, sweeping everyone from the Royal Sacred Sect within.
"Swoosh!" That hurricane ravaged this space, causing everyone in the Emperor Star Academy to not even be able to stand properly. Sensing those terrifying currents of energy, their hearts pounded madly in fear. Experts of such a tier was simply beyond their scope of imagination.
The hurricane threatened to rend everything apart. But an instant later, the masked figure used his power of space to form a black hole that controlled the direction of the hurricane, moving it away from the crowd. It was obvious that he was intentionally avoiding creating damages to the scene of the wedding.
In the blink of an eye, the hurricane shot upwards into the sky. But even when it was so far away, the people below could still sense the destructive currents from it.
However after a few moments, the surge of destructiveness gradually dissipated. And when the hurricane finally vanished, the crowd discovered to their extreme shock that not one of the experts from the Royal Sacred Sect remained, they had all disappeared.
"Are they all dead?" The hearts of everyone trembled. The attack was unleashed by one of Qin Wentian's allies, so does that mean that Jun Yu and the others...When they recalled the cripple's words, 'Slaughter them all with no mercy,' everyone felt their blood turning cold.
When the crowd wanted to see who the powerful masked figures were, they had already disappeared completely as though they had never appeared before. Maybe, they had mixed in with the crowd simply to witness this wedding silently, content with keeping a low profile. If it weren't for the Royal Sacred Sect coming to create trouble, they would probably never have appeared.
Those ascendants of Grand Xia were all completely shaken to their core. Those existences Jun Yu brought with him were all experts from the hegemon in the Royal Sacred Region - the Royal Sacred Sect. Yet, they had all been annihilated with no mercy!
Then...what does that make them? Transcendent powers of Grand Xia? In front of those masked figures, they were nothing but a bunch of ants! How laughable was it that they actually dared to even entertain the thought of creating trouble here on the day of Qin Wentian's grand wedding!
