Chapter 699: No Obstacle One Cannot Conquer
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Sacred Emperor, Sacred Battle Platform, Sacred Royal City, Sacred Royal Medallion. Everything that had the word 'Sacred'' in them, was of an extraordinary importance to the Royal Sacred Sect.
Qin Wentian's decision of choosing the Sacred Battle Platform was an extremely intelligent choice. Now, a countless number of people had already arrived and were all waiting to see what the Royal Sacred Sect's response would be. How tragic and moving was his request? He knew he couldn't escape death and hence chose to use this method to die with dignity. If the Royal Sacred Sect refused to accept his request, they would definitely be despised by the populace of this world.
In addition, where did Qin Wentian's grudge with the Royal Sacred Sect stem from? It stemmed from combat! He once stepped in the Royal Sacred Sect and slew Xia Sheng in a domineering fashion. Hence, to avenge the insult they felt in the past, the best way for the Royal Sacred Sect to deal with him was naturally though combat. Only then could they prove that their disciples were the elites among the elites, justifying their arrogance and that their position as the hegemon was not to be blasphemed.
"Qin Wentian, you are merely an ant. You don't qualify to even converse with my Royal Sacred Sect, let alone challenging our members." The controller of the airship felt some trepidation. He had personally witnessed Qin Wentian killing Chi Tie in complete dominance. It was simply too difficult to find someone at the first level of Celestial Phenomenon that could kill Qin Wentian.
As for second level Ascendants, with so many people spectating this fight, even if they killed Qin Wentian, it wasn't a matter of glory but if they were to be defeated instead, wouldn't that be the equivalent to them smacking their own faces? How could they accept his request? Simply killing Qin Wentian right away was the safest method.
"The Royal Sacred Sect is truly pitiable." Ye Qingyun stood with his hands clasped behind his back. "As the hegemon of our world, how sad is this? Qin Wentian was unwilling to join and the Royal Sacred Sect couldn't stand for geniuses with higher talent compared to their own disciples? Now you guys don't even dare to accept the challenge. I wonder if the Sacred Emperor would die of shame if he knew about this matter."
"IMPUDENT!" A voice akin to thunder boomed out in the air. More and more experts of the Royal Sacred Sect arrived, including the one surnamed Li who had invited Qin Wentian to join the Core Faction before. Right now, he stood proudly in the air, staring coldly at Qin Wentian and Ye Qingyun. He had once given Qin Wentian an opportunity to join them but Qin Wentian rejected. But of course, back then, he didn't expect things would turn out this way today. A mere Qin Wentian was actually capable of causing so much commotion.
Beside this expert surnamed Li, Zai Qiu was present as well. His eyes were like ice, as killing intent flashed unceasingly within, when he stared at Qin Wentian. It was precisely this person who almost killed him back then. It was his senior brother Xia Sheng who used his life to defend him. Among these three brothers, one died because Qin Wentian and Quinn chose to save Fan Miaoyu in the Immortal Palace. Another was slain personally by Qin Wentian in the Royal Sacred Sect and even now, Qin Wentian was still alive and was continuing to provoke his sect.
"Impudent? Am I?" Ye Qingyun stared at the figure in the air as he continued, "As the hegemon of this world, the Royal Sacred Sect is termed as a holy land. But in truth, the Royal Sacred Sect does not deserve their reputation. It's fine that numerous geniuses want to join the Royal Sacred Sect, but those who refused to would still suffer persecution because of it? Do you think you own the lives of people in the Royal Sacred Region? Even going so far to use the lives of ancient Ye and Grand Xia Empire to threaten me and Qin Wentian. Are you all even fit to be the hegemon of this world?"
Ye Qingyun's voice thundered out, the sound waves travelling over a radius of a hundred miles, his words causing the hearts of people to tremble.
The Royal Sacred Sect actually did such a despicable thing?
If this was the case, the tyranny of the Royal Sacred Sect might be really too overbearing. Do they really think that the lives of everyone in this world belonged to them and they could do as they pleased with it?
"My Royal Sacred Sect has been strong throughout the generations with our prestige well known to the world. Ye Qingyun, do you think that a few sentences of yours is enough to shake the hearts of people?" The eyes of the expert surnamed Li flashed with anger, but the tone of his voice was calm as it thundered through the nine heavens.
" 'Strong throughout the generations?' Isn't this why I said I'm willing to challenge any experts within the first three levels of Celestial Phenomenon to allow the world to see how strong exactly the disciples nurtured by the Royal Sacred Sect are. Wouldn't killing me in combat be the best proof of your very words? Such a simple matter but why are you all still hesitating?"
Qin Wentian stared at the expert surnamed Li as he commented sarcastically. A towering aura pressed down as countless experts soared into the airspace above the Sacred Battle Platform. The mounting pressure was so great that people in a hundred miles radius all felt a sense of being stifled.
"Li Mo, go kill him."
Elder Li's eyes gleamed with a murderous urge as he ordered. Within the crowd of experts from the Royal Sacred Sect, an expert slowly descended onto the stage, emanating an intensely cold aura. This person was a junior belonging to the same clan as that expert surnamed Li. He was clad in black and looked middle-aged.
Li Mo has cultivated for a total of a hundred and thirty years and was at the second level of the Celestial Phenomenon Realm. Although his cultivation level wasn't high, his foundation was extremely deep and his combat prowess was beyond most of his peers. Among the juniors of the Li Clan, Li Mo can be considered a combat genius. When placed within the disciples of the Royal Sacred Sect at the second level of Celestial Phenomenon, Li Mo can be ranked within the top three.
Li Mo had a total of two constellations, one for attack and one for defense. Both were extremely compatible with each other.
At this moment, Li Mo appeared on the platform. Ye Qingyun who was now the controller, operated a curtain of light to close off the Platform, allowing Qin Wentian and Li Mo to fight one on one. If the battle between them wasn't concluded, the curtain of light wouldn't open, they won't be able to leave the Sacred Battle Platform.
Ye Qingyun's eyes gleamed with sharpness. Hopefully, Qin Wentian's combat prowess wouldn't disappoint him. Today, they wanted to knock the hegemon of the world off their 'divine' pedestal, showing to the world that this so-called title of hegemon was nothing more than an assumption.
The talented elites of the world had no need to join the Royal Sacred Sect to be strong enough to kill demon-level disciples of the Royal Sacred Sect. They were known as the hegemon only nominally but not in reality.
The world, was still the world of everyone who lived in it, and not that of the Royal Sacred Sect. If it wasn't for generations of genius joining the Royal Sacred Sect, the Royal Sacred Sect would only have the supreme Sacred Emperor remaining. Without the geniuses, the Royal Sacred Sect was nothing.
Right now on the Sacred Battle Platform, both of Li Mo's eyes gleamed with a terrifying devilish power as his pupils turned somewhat bizarre to look at. Qin Wentian calmly stood there, staring at his opponent with his hands clasped behind his back.
Abruptly, astral light flashed as a countless number of eyes appeared in Li Mo's constellation, drawing Qin Wentian into a world only filled with eyes, attempting to bamboozle his state of mind.
"Eye-type constellation?" Qin Wentian's heart shook. The astral souls of stellar martial cultivators could take on a myriad of forms depending on which constellations they were condensed from. There were people who condensed eye-type astral souls because of the innate techniques they practiced as they wanted to boost the strength of their eye techniques. Right now in that world, there was only pair of eyes spiralling around similar to a kaleidoscope, bedazzling those trapped in it. Li Mo's figure was nowhere to be seen.
The decision to send Li Mo was not made casually by that expert surnamed Li. Qin Wentian provoked their Royal Sacred Sect in front of people of the world. If they lost any battles at all, it would definitely affect the prestige of their Royal Sacred Sect. He naturally hoped that they would be able to obtain victory with a single fight, causing Qin Wentian to commit suicide in front of the world, showcasing their imposingness to the world.
Qin Wentian's palms shone with resplendent light as he blasted them out, causing a thunderous boom to rock this space, directly destroying the eyes in front of him. However, there didn't seem to be any effect. There were a myriad of transformations the eyes could go through and they seemed endless in number. As well as being able to fade into the illusory, yet also like a real existence.
"Seems like the strength of a Celestial Phenomenon Ascendant depends on the constellation they chose to condense." Qin Wentian mused. This particular constellation of his opponent had a very strong confusion effect, it wasn't something Chi Tie could be compared to. It was very difficult if Qin Wentian wanted to kill this opponent without releasing his own constellation.
The eyes blinked in and out of existence, abruptly, numerous pairs of eyes appeared before Qin Wentian. Human hands could be seen extending out of the pupils, constituting an extremely grotesque sight as they all blasted forth together, causing a surge of destructive energy to manifest, exterminating their way over to Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian's astral soul was released, it instantly changed form into a constellation as particles of light circulated around him. A towering demonic qi gushed forth from him as a pair of golden roc wings took form behind him.
The terrifying palm attacks constantly pressed down on his wings, causing Qin Wentian's body to tremble from the impact. The palm attacks from the eyes were all real, filled with true destructive energy.
Cracking sounds rang out, the golden wings of Qin Wentian were as though they were broken apart. However at the exact same instant the palm attacks landed on him, Qin Wentian released his Dreamworld Constellation which enveloped this entire world as an aura of nihility ravaged this entire space. His opponent's constellation appeared in the sky once more but this time around, the sovereignty of this world was already seized by Qin Wentian.
At this moment, Li Mo was floating in the air. His second constellation appeared behind his back and it seemed to be a rock-type constellation which granted him an insanely high defense. His countenance turned extremely unsightly as he stared at Qin Wentian, "Your constellation actually possesses the ability to seize people's domains? What kind of constellation is that exactly?"
"Dreamworld Constellation. In this space, the energy available to me is endless." Qin Wentian replied. A terrifying destructive energy gushed forth in the air as it coalesced into the form of a gigantic palm imprint before directly blasting out.
With an intention, his rock-type constellation shone its light onto Li Mo as a stone armor formed around his body. Terrifying crushing sounds rang out unceasingly as the stone armor was shattered into pieces. However, the light from his constellation continuously shone onto him, augmenting his defense. This level of defense was simply too incredible, ordinary second-level Ascendants would never be able to break through his protection.
"Your attack is really strong. But even so, I'm afraid you still wouldn't be able to break through my defense." Li Mo stepped out, the countless pairs of eyes in the air started to gleam with an evil-looking light.
"Now...Are you sure about that?" Qin Wentian coldly replied. The demonic qi gushing from him increased in intensity as his entire person transformed into a golden winged roc. In addition, an endless amount of sword might permeated the air. At this moment, his entire body possessed an indomitable strength that could crush any obstacles standing in his way.
The raging wind tore apart the void as a golden-colored radiance illuminate this world. The Dreamworld Constellation shone its astral light onto the golden roc, causing the already sharp wings of the roc to increase in sharpness by countless times.
The thousand-meters wide wings slashed down from the heavens. In that instant, there seemed to be countless images of golden wings mixed within that gigantic wingstrike, all of them ripping through the air towards Li Mo.
Li Mo's expression changed drastically. His entire body shone with brilliant astral light, as his entire body turned into divine stone, granting him an unbreakable defense.
The golden wings lacerated downwards, slicing apart the source of Li Mo's astral light. At this moment, a light akin to the glow of candle flames coated the golden wings, and upon coming into contact with the rock, there seemed to be no obstruction whatsoever, allowing the wings to slash through the rocky exterior freely.
Li Mo turned ashen, great terror bloomed in his heart. However, he had no more methods left at his disposal. A golden beam of light slashed down as his body was directly sliced into twain.
