Chapter 885: You are not a match for me
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Zi Qingxuan cast a deep glance at Qin Wentian. Seems like Qin Wentian hasn't gave up on the notion of entering the top three.
However, she did not know what methods he would use to contest for this already seemingly impossible to obtain top three position.
Dongsheng Ting wouldn't let him enter the top three, no matter what. What can he possibly do?
Slowly turning her eyes back to the air, Gusu Tianqi and Jun Mengchen were still in combat. The two of them were inconceivably powerful and were simply too terrifying. Gusu Tianqi brandished the sun spears, all of them burning with the power of a real sun, radiating beams of sun rays that could melt everything.
However Jun Mengchen only used a single punch to wipe away everything. His fist techniques could shake the heavens and was the punch of a king. Each and every fist contained a boundless might within.
In addition, both their attack speeds were extremely fast. In the blink of an eye, they had already clashed several times.
"RUMBLE~" The sun furnace emitted a sizzling noise as lava-coated blazing sun spears ferociously shot out. The nine immortal king silhouettes behind Gusu Tianqi stretched their hands out as the spears appeared within. He himself also brandished a blazing sun spear and stepped out, causing a torrentially overwhelming pressure to bore down on Jun Mengchen.
"DIE!" With a violent roar, Gusu Tianqi stabbed out with his spear as well as the nine shadows of the immortal kings, sealing away this space, wanting to drill the spears into their opponent.
Jun Mengchen howled in rage as a fearsome windstorm generated before him, yet the windstorm was destroyed by the might of the spears. His Clear Sky Worldly Diagram spun about madly as a supreme force infused into Jun Mengchen, causing his king aura to soar even higher. Right now, a crown appeared on his head, gloves on his hands, and even a war king dragon throne manifested below his feet.
Jun Mengchen raised both his fists as the currents of energy from the diagram flooded into him. This entire space was filled with an apocalyptic and chaotic destruction qi that hailed from the primordial era. It was as though there was only endless battle in this space and Jun Mengchen was none other than the king of this world of desolation.
The blazing sun spears pierced past the chaotic qi streams, rushing ahead wanting to kill Jun Mengchen no matter what. Even if he was a supreme king he had to die here! Gusu Tianqi's nine immortal king's shadows all attacked at the same moment, their combined might was able to shatter the heavens and overturn the universe.
Jun Mengchen was exceedingly calm, his king aura soared to its peak. The spectators inclined their head and watched on and even immortal kings felt their hearts shaking. Were these attacks still at the Celestial Phenomenon level? In the future, if Jun Mengchen became an immortal-foundation or immortal king expert, what level of power would he reach? These people didn't even dare to imagine.
Some people were born innately strong. An example was Jun Mengchen, and also Gusu Tianqi.
As for some ordinary people, they nurtured their strength through external means after they were born. Examples of this were people like Hua Taixu.
"Chaotic World King Punch!" Jun Mengchen roared, both his fists pummelled through the void as the apocalyptic and chaotic destruction qi transformed into boundless fist light that congregated into the form of a corporeal violet-golden fist, breaking everything as it passed by. The ten thousand meters of violet-gold light radiating from it was extremely blinding.
Jun Mengchen's punch smashed against the blazing sun spears as a world-shaking explosion resounded out. An instant later, the punch continued forth, shattering all the spears, blasting towards Gusu Tianqi.
Gusu Tianqi froze as he stared dumbfoundedly for a moment. After that, he summoned the entirety of his strength and blasted out in defense. However, the thunderous sound of impact rang out as the spectators only saw Gusu Tianqi being blasted through the air. His constellation in the air dimmed before disappearing all together.
"Chi..." Gusu Tianqi wiped the blood from his mouth and stood in the air. He was heavily injured but the pain of his body couldn't be compared to the pain in his heart.
Gusu Tianqi's purpose in participating in this hundred-year event was naturally to become the top ranker, the most dazzling existence. He wouldn't allow himself to have any defeats. Yet right now, he had lost to Jun Mengchen.
The top ranker of the Eastern Prefecture, Gusu Tianqi, has actually lost.
"Gusu Tianqi is defeated." Countless spectators felt stunned in their hearts when they saw this.
Jun Mengchen didn't merely showcase his extraordinary talent. Even his combat prowess was unparalleled. Right now, he who was like a king, was also panting heavily. But regardless, he had defeated the powerful Gusu Tianqi.
This battle was sufficient to cause his name to resound famously throughout the entire thirteen prefectures.
The space above the platform quieted down. Even at the immortal banquet, silence was everywhere. No one talked at all, it felt as though they were still digesting what had happened.
After a long time, Gusu Tianqi drew in a deep breath as he announced, "I have lost."
As the sound of his voice faded, Jun Mengchen retracted his aura as his constellation and king armor vanished, returning back to that harmless and exquisite looking young man. He turned his gaze towards Qin Wentian and Zi Qingxuan, as a happy smile painted his face.
He won, this victory cemented his spot in the top three rankings. Not only did he have extraordinary talent, a heaven-defying physique, he also had an incomparable combat prowess.
This victory of his, caused Gusu Tianqi to have a defeat in his battle record.
While he Jun Mengchen had no defeats.
Jun Mengchen then turned his gaze onto Dongsheng Ting at the host seat as he asked, "I have zero defeats, but Gusu Tianqi has one. How will the rankings stand now?"
"What does everyone think?" Dongsheng Ting turned his gazes to the various immortal kings.
"Although Jun Mengchen's performance in the first two rounds are slightly lackluster, the potential and talent he displayed in the last round is simply overwhelming. The zero defeats in his battle achievement is naturally an indication of how strong his combat prowess is. I'm sure his Majesty would be fond of this little friend. I suggest that he should be ranked first." An immortal king smiled. He naturally understood the intentions of Dongsheng Ting. Jun Mengchen would surely be accepted as a personal disciple of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor and would be a personal disciple that was heavily focused on and nurtured.
Both Jun Mengchen and Gusu Tianqi would be disciples his Majesty would surely be fond of.
"Good, since this is the case. Jun Mengchen shall be ranked #1. Gusu Tianqi has one defeat, so he will be ranked #2." Dongsheng Ting spoke in an unhurried manner, causing the hearts of the others to shake a little. There were three rounds to this final test and ultimately, Jun Mengchen actually became the top ranker.
This was too incredible. Gusu Tianqi had actually only managed to be ranked second.
"With his level of talent, after his Majesty personally nurtures him, Jun Mengchen would surely soar up to the heavens." At the location of the Cloud Prefecture, the Idlecloud Immortal King was exceedingly happy as he laughed. A heaven chosen from his Cloud Prefecture was the top ranker of the immortal banquet. What glory was this, this was simply an unprecedented achievement.
However, the others at the Cloud Prefecture weren't that happy. The smiles on their faces all stiffened.
"There are three participants among the top ten from the Cloud Prefecture, including the eventual top ranker Jun Mengchen. HAHAHA!" The Idlecloud Immortal King felt more and more joyful the longer he thought about it. Before this the prefecture lords of the other prefectures were still boasting in his face but now, their earlier actions were like them smacking their own faces.
"This time, the Cloud Prefecture is really excellent." Dongsheng Ting also praised, his words causing the Idlecloud Immortal King to beam even brighter.
"Jun Mengchen, I have a very good opinion of you. Don't let the Eastern Immortal Sage Sect down in the future." Dongsheng Ting smiled at Jun Mengchen. Giving the position of the top ranker to Jun Mengchen was to better their relationship, he wanted Jun Mengchen to forget the things he did before.
"But your highness, since I'm already the top ranker...in that case if my senior brother was to defeat Gusu Tianqi, why can't he be part of the top three?" Jun Mengchen questioned.
"I've already explained before, the rankings of the final round has to be considered together with the rankings of the first two rounds, in addition to one's talent and combat prowess. Your talent is extraordinary, you have a heaven-defying physique and you dominated every single opponent during the third round. Hence, giving you the top rank is only natural. But as for Qin Wentian, even if he only defeats Gusu Tianqi here, it's still unfair to kick Gusu Tianqi out of the top three considering his rankings in the earlier rounds." Dongsheng Ting explained.
"I won't lose again." Gusu Tianqi's countenance was ice cold. He already lost a fight, yet Dongsheng Ting and Jun Mengchen were publicly discussing the hypothesis of what would happen if he lost again.
"You better rest first to recover your strength." At this moment, Qin Wentian spoke, his words causing Gusu Tianqi to turn his icy gaze to him as he replied, "If you want to fight, I can fight now."
"Even if I win against you, the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect also isn't prepared to allow me to enter the top three. In addition, you are not at your optimal state. Even if I defeated you now, I'm afraid his highness Dongsheng Ting would have an excuse ready again." Qin Wentian coldly spoke, his words causing Dongsheng Ting to furrowed his brows. The purpose of Qin Wentian's sentence was insinuating that Dongsheng Ting was intentionally targeting him.
"Just take a break first, before this didn't you believe that you would have no defeats? But didn't you still lose to my junior brother in the end? It's better for you to be more cautious." Qin Wentian's eyes gleamed with sharpness as he continued.
"Since you put it this way, just wait there then." Gusu Tianqi replied. He then sat cross-legged and started meditating to recover.
The eyes of the spectators turned to Qin Wentian. From his tone, Qin Wentian seemed to be immensely confident in himself.
The ten participants were still on the platform. Upon staring at these people, the various immortal kings couldn't help but to sigh. Some of these people were truly powerful but sadly, they could only watch on with reluctance as those stronger than them took the top few rankings. Nobody knew if their self-confidence and spirit would be broken by this, forever unable to recover.
"Most probably, only a last fight remains. However since Dongsheng Ting has already determined the rankings, this fight seems to be somewhat pointless. It's merely a battle for Qin Wentian to prove himself."
The spectators mused as the atmosphere at the banquet turned quiet again, all of them were waiting for the last battle.
After that, this once-per-hundred year immortal banquet shall come to an end.
After a period of time, Gusu Tianqi opened his eyes as a dazzling light erupted forth. It was extremely terrifying to behold. He stared at Qin Wentian and asked, "Are you ready?"
Qin Wentian glanced over as he stood up. He then turned to Dongsheng Ting and said, "I won't say anything more regarding what happened in the past. Since your highness feels that the talent I displayed isn't high enough, I can only hope to use this last fight to show your highness in a more decisive manner. As for the word 'fairness' of this entire disciple recruitment event, I believed that all the immortal king seniors here already understand what is going on in their hearts."
After speaking, he turned and walked towards the center of the platform and swept his gaze over all the participants.
"Your opponent is me." Gusu Tianqi appeared before him and spoke coldly.
"But, you are not a match for me." Qin Wentian spoke in cold arrogance. His gaze turned to the participants as he spoke, "Gusu Tianqi, Feather King, Ruthless, Qin Ta and Ye Qianchen. Do me a favor, just come at me together."
