Chapter 703: Wanting Qin Wentian's Death
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Dong Yu, a Heaven Chosen of the Royal Sacred Sect with a cultivation base at the third level of Celestial Phenomenon Realm.
Qin Wentian was unwilling to join the Royal Sacred Sect. His cultivation base was now at the first level of Celestial Phenomenon, he was the top ranker of the Immortal Martial Realm and had a degree of talent higher compared to the eight era-suppressing geniuses. Not only that, his fifth astral soul was also a violet-gold astral soul from the 7th Heavenly Layer.
The two of them fought fairly on the Sacred Battle Platform but the result was that Dong Yu had died.
There was simply no need to talk about the differences in their talent. Dong Yu was two whole levels higher than Qin Wentian, yet he was suppressed to death. The geniuses of the Royal Sacred Sect were simply jokes in front of Qin Wentian.
Just like what Qin Wentian and Ye Qingyun said, the hegemon of this world, the Royal Sacred Sect seems to have an undeserved reputation. Their so-called strength was simply because of the gathering of this world's geniuses. As for those demon-level characters which they nurtured, even when two levels higher than Qin Wentian, that genius was still smashed apart. Actions, would always speak louder than words.
At this moment, the experts of the Royal Sacred Sect were all ashen. Dong Yu died in battle, and their face was undoubtedly smacked by Qin Wentian in front of the world. The hegemon of this world didn't live up to its name.
The screen of light opened. Ye Qingyun turned his gaze onto the air and spoke,"If it weren't for the people of this world, how could there be a Royal Sacred Sect? What's laughable is that now that the Royal Sacred Sect has became the hegemon through generations of effort from the people, they started to view the lives of everyone in the world as theirs to dictate. Even using the lives of my Ye Country and Grand Xia to threaten us? How pitiful. If the Royal Sacred Sect can't stand us both, just come and kill us then. If you implicate the innocent citizens of my Ye country and Grand Xia Empire, you will only earn the scorn of the people of the world and be destroyed sooner or later."
Lu Ziyan watched the scene play out with a smile on her face. The Royal Sacred Sect was the king of this world but it seems that there were people rebelling now. Not only that, among these rebels, there was a demon-level character who had a violet-gold astral soul.
Sadly, this young man was born in such a remote particle world. If he was born in the outside worlds, how could such a weak power like the Royal Sacred Sect dare to kill him? If they did, it was unknown how many major powers would act on his behalf, annihilating the Royal Sacred Sect from the face of this world.
Such contrived situations would only happen in a world full of country bumpkins.
Zai Xuan stared at Qin Wentian as his gaze flickered with jealousy. He was the Sacred Prince, but in this world governed by his sect, there was actually a country bumpkin whose talent was higher than him? And in addition, he was still boasting earlier in front of Lu Ziyan. Now when he looked at the smile on Lu Ziyan's face, he felt that his face had been completely thrown away.
However, if Qin Wentian was really born in the outside worlds, it was true that he would have many opportunities. However, this world was a world dominated by his Royal Sacred Sect. So what if he had supreme talent? He was nothing more than a "thing" whose fate lies in their control.
"If I had that kind of astral soul, I would long have already been accepted as a personal disciple by those powerful characters." Zai Xuan's eyes gleamed with coldness, yet he didn't allow any of that to show on the outside. He turned and spoke to Qin Wentian,"Your talent is remarkable, as the hegemon of this world, my Royal Sacred Sect isn't a tyrant that has no tolerance. Even now, I'm still willing to give you a chance. As long as you are willing to submit, my Royal Sacred Sect is still willing to welcome you and would heavily invest resources to nurture you."
Yet what Zai Xuan was really thinking was that as long as Qin Wentian agreed to join the Royal Sacred Sect, his life and fate would completely be in his hands. At that time, he would only need to use some unique methods to cause Qin Wentian to completely submit to him, to the extent where it was impossible even if he wanted to break free, forever becoming his slave.
"Are you fucking kidding me?" Qin Wentian inclined his head, staring at Zai Xuan who was in the air. His eyes flashed with mocking laughter, causing Zai Xuan to furrow his brows.
After which, he only heard Qin Wentian continue speaking,"Do I even need the Royal Sacred Sect to nurture me? Is your Royal Sacred Sect even qualified to do so?"
As the sound of his voice faded, the hearts of everyone pounded violently once more. His words caused Zai Xuan to turn ashen, how arrogant were these words? Yet they had no way to refute them. The battle earlier was still fresh in the minds of everyone. Qin Wentian slayed two Heaven Chosens of their Royal Sacred Sect and both of his opponents had cultivation bases higher compared to him.
Saying that his Royal Sacred Sect would nurture him was undoubtedly a joke. The talents you nurtured were all destroyed by someone who could jump levels. Do you even still have the face to say that you would nurture this person?
"This is already the limit of our tolerance. Your hands are filled with the blood of our members. If you continue to be so arrogant, death is your only way out." Zai Xuan's voice was bone-chillingly cold. An icy intent cascaded downwards, gushing towards Qin Wentian.
"Tolerance? Ridiculous. If my combat prowess was just a little weaker, would I even still be alive to hear you speak such nonsense? You all want to kill me and don't permit me to resist? If I resist, this meant that I'm arrogant? Your logic truly astounds the world." Qin Wentian mocked as he continued,"Don't forget the words I said before I came here. Could it be that your Royal Sacred Sect is now publicly admitting that there's no one else in the sect that can defeat me? I even allow you to send opponents two levels higher than me but is there no one who dares to battle?"
"Zai Xuan, this brat is truly too brazen. There's no need to waste words with him, kill him directly." An elder of the Royal Sacred Sect spoke. Keeping Qin Wentian alive would only continue to damage the prestige of their Royal Sacred Sect. This brat had to die.
"The Royal Sacred Sect, the hegemon of this world. From today onwards, it's name would become nothing but a joke, a shame to the people of the world." Qin Wentian stared at the experts in the air. His purpose here today has already been accomplished. Staring at the ugly expressions on the faces of the experts from the Royal Sacred Sect, Qin Wentian understood that they had been knocked down from their divine pedestal. There wouldn't be anyone thinking of them as a God or a sacred land for cultivators at the highest level.
Their overbearingness and their tyranny. Their principle of submit and prosper, defy and die; they weren't as perfect nor as strong as what people imagined. The talents nurtured by the Royal Sacred Sect could similarly be defeated by others. A true demon-level character had no need to join the Royal Sacred Sect.
Zai Xuan's eyes turned sinister. His tolerance had already reached the limit. This man kept humiliating his Royal Sacred Sect. If they don't kill him, where would their prestige still remain?
As the sound of Zai Xuan's voice faded...
A terrifying might suddenly engulfed this space, so powerful that it made everyone present want to prostrate themselves in worship.
"How tyrannical," A voice drifted over. After which, a silhouette appeared in the center of the Sacred Battle Platform. This was none other than the Medicine Sovereign!
He stood there unmoving, yet an overwhelming formless pressure radiated out from him, travelling outwards in a thousand miles. This entire space seemed to be locked down, the murderous aura from Zai Xuan completely dissipated in the face of this might.
"The Medicine Sovereign...Why is he this strong?" There were some who felt their hearts shaking in fear. The Royal Sacred Sect brought too many experts, and there were many peak-level Ascendants among them. Yet just the pressure radiating from the Medicine Sovereign alone was sufficient to offset and even overwhelm the pressure exuding from the experts of the Royal Sacred Sect?
This ancient existence, how strong was he exactly?
"Qin Wentian is the husband of my personal disciple Mo Qingcheng. This means that he is my son-in-law. The Royal Sacred Sect kept on forcing my hand, and even sent out so many experts to kill him? Do you all not have me in your eyes?" The Medicine Sovereign stared at those from the Royal Sacred Sect standing in the air as he coldly spoke.
"Medicine Sovereign, you don't have the rights to interfere in this." Zai Xuan icily replied. However, the Medicine Sovereign merely glanced at him as he flicked his sleeve. Such a simple actions caused Zai Xuan's body to be directly flung through the air, as blood leaked out from his mouth.
"Who do you think you are? How dare you talk to me in this manner?" The Medicine Sovereign's eyes turned to ice.
"Medicine Sovereign, are you planning on interfering in the matters of the junior generation?" At this moment, another voice rang out in the air. After which a face appeared in the sky, causing the hearts of countless people to tremble.
"We greet the Sacred Emperor." Some of those from the upper echelons of the Royal Sacred Sect instantly bowed low upon seeing this face as they called out respectfully.
"We pay our respect to the Sacred Emperor." The other experts of the Royal Sacred Sect all felt their hearts shaking as they knelt respectfully to welcome the Sacred Emperor.
At this instant, the people of the Sacred Royal City were all extremely stunned. Today, the Sacred Emperor, the head of the hegemon of this world had personally came to the Sacred Battle Platform?
The eyes of that face only had interest in one person. His gaze was only fixed on the Medicine Sovereign.
"'Matters of the junior generation?' The entire Royal Sacred Sect is bullying my son-in-law, do they even have me in their eyes?" The Medicine Sovereign stared up in the air, with no hints of fear at all in his mannerisms. His words couldn't help but cause great waves to rise in the hearts of those present.
The Medicine Sovereign actually dared to talk to the Sacred Emperor in this manner? A possibility suddenly bloomed in their minds, and their hearts once more couldn't help but to tremble violently when they thought of it.
"No matter what, at our current level of cultivation, we shouldn't interfere in their matters." The Sacred Emperor calmly spoke, his words giving credence to the possibility that appeared in the minds of those present. And as his words rang out, the entire space was stunned into silence.
At 'our' current level of cultivation?
Had the Medicine Sovereign also reached the immortal level?
No wonder Qin Wentian dared to behave in this manner. So it turned out that his backer was also an immortal. What else does he not dare to do?
In fact, even Qin Wentian felt his heart shaking as he stared in astonishment at the old man in front of him. So it turns out that the Medicine Sovereign had already reached this level.
"Hu..." Breathing out a mouthful of turbid air, Qin Wentian bitterly shook his head. He naturally didn't come here to die today. In fact, he had maintained communications constantly with the experts of the Medical Sovereign Valley, discussing how they should handle this. The Medicine Sovereign sent word to him, telling him to act as his heart desires. This was why Qin Wentian appeared on the Sacred Battle Platform and provoked and challenged the prestige of the Royal Sacred Sect.
He kept speculating why was the Medicine Sovereign so confident, what trump card does he have to be so confident. Could it be that Uncle Black and the others would act once more?
But in reality he was wrong. Ever since after his wedding, Uncle Black and his father's followers wouldn't appear again.
Qin Wentian's wedding was too important an event, and Uncle Black also wanted to accomplish Qin Wentian's mother's order which was why he chose to appear. If not, even now, Qin Wentian wouldn't know that the Medicine Sovereign and Uncle Black were acquaintances.
However at this moment, Qin Wentian suddenly realized something. No wonder back then the Medicine Sovereign would dare to protect him when he was in the Royal Sacred Sect, speaking to the Sacred Emperor on equal terms. So it turned out that the Medicine Sovereign had long became an immortal. What was laughable was that he only discovered it now. In hindsight, it seemed that he was a little foolish. He should have been able to guess it long ago.
The Medicine Sovereign calmly stared at the face in the sky,"In that case, this means that their killing of Qin Wentian has been met with your approval. You are the Sacred Emperor, you say we shouldn't get involved in matters of the junior generations yet you were the one who gave the order. Seems like the state of your heart hasn't matched up with your cultivation level yet."
"Today you won't be able to protect him. If you insist on doing it, I shall act personally." The serene voice of the Sacred Emperor contained an undoubtable might, causing great tremors to rock the hearts of those present. It seems that even the Sacred Emperor wants Qin Wentian to die.
Qin Wentian was simply too dazzling. Especially today, he had exposed the fact that he had a violet-gold astral soul. Since this person had an enmity with his sect, how could the Sacred Emperor still allow such an outstanding genius to survive?!
