Chapter 763: Order of Arrest
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Qin Wentian did indeed discover that strand of immortal sense. The instant his demon sword stabbed into Jiang Kuang, he had already sensed the existence of it.
He knew that immortal-foundation experts would definitely leave behind a protective strand of immortal sense on their descendants. Bai Wuya did so before, as did Zhao Yuyan's master. How could Qin Wentian not be aware of this?
Hence, he made a prompt decision and left Jiang Kuang behind, leaving straight away.
"Jiang Kuang," That faint silhouette manifested by the immortal sense embraced Jiang Kuang. At this moment, the life force of Jiang Kuang waned, and was dangerously low. His inner organs were all damaged, and even his heart was almost destroyed. The last strike Qin Wentian unleashed before he departed was out to claim Jiang Kuang's life. His method was ruthless and didn't intend to show any mercy.
However, Jiang Kuang didn't die, he hovered between life and death with a wisp of vitality left. If it wasn't for his father's immortal sense protecting his heart, this wisp of vitality would have already dissipated.
But even so, Jiang Kuang would definitely become a crippled if he managed to survive. There was no way he would ever recover.
This sudden scene stunned everyone present, including Xie Shi and Xie Yu. At this moment, Xie Yu only felt his entire body shivering from a chill in his heart as he perspired cold sweat.
Decisive and ruthless, Jiang Kuang was in a position of absolute advantage with immortal-foundation experts nearby. They all initially thought that as long as Jiang Kuang didn't agree, it was basically impossible for Qin Wentian to bring his target away. In fact, Qin Wentian wouldn't even be able to leave this place. But the reality has proven that everyone here underestimated Qin Wentian's trump cards as well as his ruthlessness and decisiveness. In order to bring a young girl away, he actually even dared to kill Jiang Kuang of the Jiang Clan.
During that moment, his sword pierced into Jiang Kuang and could reap away his life at any moment. Who would dare to block Qin Wentian's path?
Even the immortal sense of Jiang Kuang's father dared not to manifest; because if he did so, Jiang Kuang would die for sure. This madness actually gave Qin Wentian an opportunity to bring his sister away instead.
"This is simply crazy." Han Luo of the commander garrison felt his heart trembling. Too damn crazy, earlier if there was the slightest mistake, Qin Wentian would definitely be buried here today. Was it worth it to take such a risk just for a woman?
There weren't many people who had such outstanding talent like Qin Wentian. Able to fight against fifth-level ascendants while merely at the second level and what's more, it was even Jiang Kuang who first took out an immortal-ranked weapon.
As for Zhao Yuyan, her entire body was shivering as she stared at Jiang Kuang who is on the verge of death. Her countenance turned pale. It was Qin Wentian again who destroyed her chance. But why would he dare to even kill Jiang Kuang? How could he be so audacious?
"If he's alive, I want to see his person, and if he's dead, I want to see his corpse." Jiang Kuang's father icily spoke, causing the guards nearby who were in a dazed state to instantly awaken. Jiang Kuang's father then continued, "Immediately send the entire forces of this city to pursue him."
The eyes of the supreme elder from the Golden Armor Sect flashed with sharpness. What a crazy fellow. What he didn't understand was that it was clear Qin Wentian obviously had a great power behind his back but why did he still wanted to take the risk to kill Jiang Kuang? Or could it be that the major power Qin Wentian belonged to didn't allow the members of their sect to use their name?
Maybe only this would be the only explanation. As expected of a disciple nurtured by a true expert, he was only at the second level of Celestial Phenomenon but the attacking methods he had at his disposal even made him watched on in awe. If it was himself in Qin Wentian's position, he would never chose to do this. Most probability everyone present all had the same thought, nobody dared to even imagine themselves doing this. Yet, Qin Wentian had already done so.
Qin Wentian did this because he had no choice. No matter what, he had to rescue Qin Qing. This was why he appeared in such a domineering fashion and acted thus to create an illusion that he had a powerful background, wanting to make the Jiang Clan release Qin Qing out of trepidation.
To the Jiang Clan and Jiang Kuang, Qin Qing was someone that has no importance. It wouldn't affect them even if they released her.
As long as Jiang Kuang released her, Qin Wentian would immediately depart. But it turned out that Jiang Kuang wasn't willing to and hence, he had no choice but to act as he did.
Also, given his strength, in the face of so many experts present at the City Lord Manor, it would only lead to his death if he forcibly fought all of them head on. Hence, he could only improvise and wait for an opportunity, abducting Jiang Kuang to save Qin Qing.
Naturally to accomplish all this still rested on the fact that back then in the Royal Sacred Region, he received many immortal-ranked treasures from the interspatial rings of the immortals from the War Immortal Palace. For example that armor of light which blocked Jiang Kuang's immortal lance was a one-time usage immortal-ranked treasure that was exceedingly valuable. But to save Qin Qing, he had no choice but to utilize that.
As for the teleportation scroll, it naturally wasn't created by him. It was also an immortal-ranked treasure that could send the user about tens of thousands of miles away from the original location.
Qin Wentian and Qin Qing directly appeared at a random location in the Worryfree City. Intense spatial fluctuations rumbled the area and Qin Qing almost lost her footing. Qin Wentian steadied her and took out his immortal shuttle as they instantly shot through the air. He didn't even dare to waste a moment.
Even though he used the teleportation treasure, such a distance was nothing to immortal experts. He had to use the shortest amount of time to leave the Worryfree City.
The shuttle he was on was a speed-type immortal-ranked treasure. Qin Qing was carried by Qin Wentian, and at this moment, her beautiful eyes regarded Qin Wentian as she felt a warmth in her heart. However, she didn't mention any words of thanks, she understood there was no need to. But even so, never in her wildest dreams would she have imagined that Qin Wentian would do such a crazy thing for the sake of rescuing her.
"Big bro Qin, grandpa and Qin Feng..." Qin Qing mumbled.
"Don't worry, before I came I already sent them away. The Qin Clan had dispersed as well." Qin Wentian replied. Since he had already made the decision to storm the City Lord Manor, there was no way he would be so careless not to settle any loose ends before he did so.
Qin Qing's worries melted away when she heard Qin Wentian's words. Above the air, clouds were everywhere. The shuttle moved with lightning speed and directly left the Worryfree City, soaring far away.
He killed Jiang Kuang of the Jiang Clan, and he must definitely flee far away. It wouldn't even be safe as long as he was within a ten thousand miles radius at the exterior of the Worryfree City. He had to flee even further.
Given how vast the immortal realms were, how could it be so easy for the Jiang Clan to find him?
Jiang Kuang's death caused a tsunami-level commotion in the Worryfree City. The City Lord searched throughout the city showing no restraint, causing huge disturbances as the atmosphere was doused with panic.
The people of the Worryfree City had also heard the rumors. The Jiang Clan that arrived at their Worryfree City in such an overwhelming manner, their young master Jiang Kuang was actually killed on the day of the banquet. As to whether he actually died or not, nobody knew. The news regarding that was locked down completely. But it was evident that the Jiang Clan was truly enraged as the City Lord Manor was under great pressure.
In addition, the king of the country where the Worryfree City was located also personally came. This country was named the Jiangling country and had eighty-one cities within it. The king of a country could be considered the dukes and marquis of a prefecture. Now that a young master of the Jiang Clan, a power at the peak of the Cloud Prefecture died in a city under his jurisdiction, how could the king of the Jiangling Country feel at ease? He immediately worked closely with the Jiang Clan, sending out notices to capture Qin Wentian. Very swiftly, the order for arrest of Qin Wentian was circulated around the entire Jiangling Country.
However, to Qin Wentian, he had no idea about all of this.
In a location very far away from the Worryfree City, there was a mountain range. On a particular mountain peak, there were a few simple huts and their surroundings were filled with greenery and ancient looking trees, adorned with an abundance of flora.
On the edge of the mountain cliff, there were three silhouettes currently there. One of them was practicing his fist techniques, and this person was none other than Qin Feng. Qin Wentian was also there. He is currently sitting cross-legged, deeply immersed in his cultivation.
Other than them, there was also a young girl sitting a distance away, quietly staring at them. This person was naturally Qin Qing.
"Through this month, Qin Feng's improvement is so fast. He's already ready to barge into the ninth level of Yuanfu and had already comprehended his Mandate. Big brother Qin's understanding towards Mandates is truly profound, no wonder he is so powerful." Qin Qing felt joy in her heart when she noted Qin Feng's improvement. How good would it be if big brother Qin would be able to remain beside them forever. In that case, he could continue to guide Qin Feng and she would be able to cook stuff for him to eat.
"Qin Qing, why are you in a daze?" Qin Mu walked over and sat down beside Qin Qing.
"I'm thinking how good would it be if big brother Qin could stay here forever. We are truly blessed to have met someone like him." Qin Qing cupped her hands around her head as she smiled.
"Yes, we truly are blessed." Qin Mu nodded in agreement. If there was no Qin Wentian, this family of their would surely be finished.
"However, although Qin Feng is the disciple of your big brother Qin, separation is something inevitable. At the time of his departure, don't be too saddened by it. Your big brother Qin still has his own future that he needs to pursue. At that time, we will roam the immortal realms, going as far as possible, let's see if we are able to walk out of this country, or even walk out of the boundlessly vast Cloud Prefecture." Qin Mu spoke to Qin Qing, his words causing her expression to dim.
Oh yeah, big brother Qin still had his own path he had to walk. How could he continue to hang around with them? He has already done more than enough for their sake and even risked so much just to rescue her.
"Mhm." Qin Qing nodded.
At this moment, a hint of aura fluctuation emanated from Qin Wentian who was sitting on the edge of a mountain cliff. It seemed as though at this moment, Qin Wentian was currently in a marvelous state.
Qin Mu's eyes flashed sharply, staring at Qin Wentian. He only saw resplendent astral light circulating around Qin Wentian as an abstruse and profound mysterious force gushed forth from him to all directions. There seemed to be several forms of energy mixed within and felt extremely mystical.
"Your big brother Qin's cultivation base seemed to have undergone a breakthrough, he looks to have stepped into the third level of Celestial Phenomenon." Qin Mu murmured. At this moment, Qin Wentian drew in a deep breath, appearing like he wanted to absorb the spiritual qi of heaven and earth within his body. His eyes slowly opened as a divine glow flickered within, feeling extremely marvelous.
"Master, you've awaken!" Qin Feng ran over when he saw Qin Wentian stand up. After which, he consulted with Qin Wentian on many topics of cultivation which was troubling him. Qin Wentian explained and guided him through the questions one by one, not giving the full answers as he made it a point for Qin Feng to think through and reflect on the guidance he received to figure things out on his own. After that, he left Qin Feng to cultivate by himself and walked towards Qin Mu as he smiled, "Old sir, what are your plans in the future?"
"Roaming the immortal realms I guess, we can never go back to the Worryfree City now. I will try my best to bring them out of this country, but I have no idea the distance we must travel." Qin Mu smiled.
"Mhm, this is a good idea. But Qin Feng and Qin Qing are both still so young, it might be quite troublesome for you to take care of them in the future." Qin Wentian stated in concern.
"You are leaving now?" Qin Mu started.
"It's about time I leave, I can't keep staying in the mountains anyway." Qin Wentian smiled.
"Master!" Qin Feng ran over. Qin Qing cast a glance at Qin Wentian as she lowered her head. However, Qin Mu was calm and unflustered. He patted Qin Wentian on his shoulder and spoke, "I see. Let my grandchildren and I drink a few cups with you and let this be counted as our method of sending you on your way."
"Right." Qin Wentian nodded. The four of them sat together, retrieved the wine cups and started to drink just like this. Even Qin Qing that lass joined in as well, none of the four continued on the topic of Qin Wentian's departure and they merely chatted as they enjoyed their time together.
Time flowed by, even the sun had set. Qin Feng and Qin Qing this pair of siblings had already fallen asleep on the grassy ground. Qin Wentian stared at the sleeping pair as he smiled. After that, he nodded to Qin Mu before his silhouette flickered as he vanished underneath the moonlight.
But at the moment when Qin Wentian truly left, Qin Feng and Qin Qing who were quietly pretending to be asleep finally could control their emotions no longer. Sparkling tears could be seen from the corner of their eye lids!
