Chapter 1083: Peak-grade Mission from the Heavenly Talisman Realm
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Among these immortal emperors, the one who wished to kill Qin Wentian the most, was actually none other than the Xuan Emperor. Secondly, it was the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor. The son of the Xuan Emperor, Xuan Xing, definitely died in the hands of Qin Wentian. Although Dongsheng Ting was dead, the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor still had no idea that Dongsheng Ting died in Qin Wentian's hands. Hence, his hatred wasn't as deep as the Xuan Emperor.
However although the Xuan Emperor was an immortal emperor, he was one of the weaker ones who couldn't even win against the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor. Naturally, he wasn't a match for the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord.
Over here, there was Nanfeng Guhong, the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord and Emperor Yu backing Qin Wentian up. Any of the immortal emperors here were all stronger than him. What could the Xuan Emperor do? Kill Qin Wentian? Killing Qin Wentian was something the Violet Emperor didn't do. Did he dare to do it?
Although he hated Qin Wentian, he could only choose to endure this temporarily. Qin Wentian could sense the dangerous killing intent within the Xuan Emperor's eyes. He knew that if there was a chance, the Xuan Emperor would definitely take his life.
"You guys also guard the entrance of the ancient mountain together with the Violet Emperor's subordinates. If that masked man appears, kill him with no mercy." The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor spoke. After that, he coldly glanced at Qin Wentian before soaring through the air. He naturally understood that the man in the bronze mask wouldn't dare to come out. Most probably, the masked man would choose to hide out in the ancient mountain for an extremely long time since he killed Dongsheng Ting and Zi Yunwu. The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor wasn't so free to keep guarding this place but he would send his men to monitor the entrance. Unless of course, the man in the bronze mask chose to hide within the mountain forever.
"Brother Qin, you must remember to visit my Jiang Clan in the future too." Jiang Ziyu faintly smiled before leaving together with the Jiang Clan.
The Violet Emperor and the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor also left. There was no point for the others to stay. So the major powers all began to disperse, leaving with disappointment. They were unable to enter the ancient mountain and had no fate with God's Hand or the treasures. Seems like they could only wait for Qin Wentian's cultivation base to rise to a certain level and enter the ancient mountain to acquire the treasures before they plunder it away. This was the only solution now.
As expected, Qin Wentian discovered that although the major powers left, they all still commanded some subordinates to guard the ancient mountain. Qin Wentian knew that from now on, there would always be people here to monitor the situation. Especially so for him, once he entered the ancient mountain, it would instantly attract attention. He also understood that since these people couldn't get the treasure, they temporarily wouldn't do anything to him. But once he entered the ancient mountain and acquired Ancient Emperor Yi's treasure, a storm of blood would instantly gush forth.
"Seems like things are a little troublesome." Qin Wentian stared at those standing guard at the entrance. In the future, those immortal emperors might even command these people to enter the mountain. If that's the case, it would truly inconvenience him.
"Are you okay?" Nanfeng Yunxi asked as she walked to Qin Wentian's side.
Qin Wentian wiped the traces of blood from the corner of his mouth and smiled, "Don't worry, my harvest is far greater than the price I have to pay."
Nanfeng Yunxi rolled her eyes. However, she knew Qin Wentian was speaking the truth. This trip this time around, was extremely beneficial to Qin Wentian. In addition, the nephew of the Violet Emperor Zi Yunwu and the son of Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor Dongsheng Ting, both died due to Qin Wentian's planning. Even if he suffered a little bullying from the immortal emperors, it was still worth it. If the immortal emperors knew the truth, they would surely be so livid that they coughed out blood.
"Many thanks for senior's assistance." Qin Wentian bowed to Emperor Yu. Emperor Yu stroked his beard and smiled at Qin Wentian. This fellow truly knows how to act, but this was just as well. He naturally understood the secret of the Battle Saint Tribe couldn't be leaked. Since Qin Wentian didn't say anything, how could anyone make the connection between him and Ancient Emperor Yi?
"Nothing much, after you obtained the inheritance, you offended so many major powers. You have to be more cautious when doing things in the future, don't allow the inheritance of Ancient Emperor Yi to be lost again." Emperor Yu reminded.
"Junior understands." Qin Wentian nodded.
"Qin Wentian, what are your plans now?" Nanfeng Yunxi asked in a low voice. Now that he already obtained God's Hand, she was curious what Qin Wentian was going to do now.
"I will return to the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect." Qin Wentian smiled. "The duration of this trip was not short at all. I want to go back and take a look and maybe enter seclusion for a period of time."
Di Tian was currently cultivating in the Battle Saint Tribe, he was preparing to enter seclusion together with Di Tian. Cultivating God's Hand will aid him in the bottlenecks of rising up in cultivation level.
"Mhm we will part ways then. Take care." Nanfeng Yunxi smiled.
"Take care." Qin Wentian nodded. Nanfeng Shengge also smiled, "Qin Wentian, if you have the time, feel free to drop by our Southern Phoenix Clan. I will play a few tunes for your enjoyment."
"Being able to enjoy beautiful Shengge's zither skills, it's a wonderful thing in the human world. I will definitely do so." Qin Wentian smiled.
"Wait don't be in such a hurry to part ways. We still need to borrow the transference array of the Southern Phoenix Clan to return." The Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord suddenly spoke, causing Qin Wentian, Nanfeng Yunxi and the others to start. After that, they glanced at each other and smiled.
This place was the Southern Regions of the immortal realms and was exceedingly far from the eastern region where the Eastern Sage Thirteen Prefectures were located. They would have to head to the Southern Phoenix Immortal City first and use the array there to return. This was the fastest method.
"We can take care of each other on the road back." Nanfeng Guhong smiled. After which everyone bid farewell to Emperor Yu and departed.
Not too long after, the God Hand Mountain Manor returned to its usual quiet state. There were no longer any experts here, but the fissures on the ground were still there. Emperor Yu stroked his beard and smiled, "It's tranquil again."
"Yeah. It's tranquil now. Sometimes I really wish to go back and take a look." An old man beside Emperor Yu spoke in a low voice.
"Don't think too much." Emperor Yu stared at the skies. Maybe, only when their Battle Saint Tribe regained their former glory would their tribe members be able to come out in the open and roam the world. In order for this to happen, the hard work of generations after generations were needed. The Saint Lord of this generation Qin Wentian was young but he possessed extraordinary talent and disposition. In fact, he even surpassed the Emperor Yi all those years ago. They could only wonder how far Qin Wentian was able to lead them.
In the Cloud Prefecture, the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect, the experts under the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord returned.
Bai Wuya as well as the few disciples from the Heavenly Talisman Realm also came along together to the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect. This actually made Qin Wentian somewhat bewildered.
"Senior brother, could it be there are more disciples from the Heavenly Talisman Realm pretending to join the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect?" Qin Wentian stared at Bai Wuya as he transmitted his voice.
"Mhm." Bai Wuya nodded. "Wentian, it has been a long time since you returned to the Heavenly Talisman Realm. Right now there's a very important mission issued and this is a grand mission which requires the participation of many Heavenly Talisman Realm disciples working together. These disciples from the Heavenly Talisman Realm who came together with me, are all participants for the mission."
"What mission is that?" Qin Wentian's eyes flashed as he continued asking.
"Unify the Thirteen Prefectures of Eastern Sage." When the sound of Bai Wuya's voice rang out in his mind, Qin Wentian's felt his heart tremble.
Back then when he participated in the hundred-year recruitment event of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect and obtained the first ranking, the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord appeared and demanded control of six prefectures from the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor. However, how could the strength of the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect be comparable to the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect who had governed the thirteen prefectures for so many years? The Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect would be devoured and destroyed sooner or later. So, even for the powers of the six prefectures currently under the control of the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord, they only submitted on the surface but wasn't truly subservient to the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect. Because they understood that from the overall picture, the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect was stronger and would eventually prevail in the end.
Now, the members from the Heavenly Talisman Realm were slowly flowing into the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect, bolstering up its strength. Everything on the surface looked normal, like the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect growing stronger bit and bit as time progresses, seemingly completely natural. However, it was a meticulously thought-out plan. Right from the start, maybe the Heavenly Talisman Realm was moving from the shadows to the light, setting and preparing foundations, gradually revealing itself.
"Truly a grand mission." Qin Wentian replied. "This would require a long period of time right?"
"Naturally. After this mission was issued, only immortal kings and immortal-foundation experts could participate. Immortal emperors are temporarily not needed. There's a limit on the number of participants but that limit is not filled yet. I've already registered for you guys, are you all keen on this?" Bai Wuya was staring right ahead as he continued walking. No one else knew that the two of them were conversing through voice transmissions.
"What are the rewards for this mission?" Qin Wentian smiled. Unifying the Eastern Sage Thirteen Prefectures. Such a mission could be considered one on the super-mission tier. It's on the same level of establishing an immortal empire. Similar to the past missions, free will of the participants was considered. The disciples of the Heavenly Talisman Realms wouldn't be forced to participate in this if they didn't want to.
"After this mission is completed, those who are still alive would receive a unique reward from the Heavenly Talisman Realm. As to what the reward is, that info wasn't revealed yet but no one has ever been disappointed by the unique rewards from the Heavenly Talisman Realm before." Bai Wuya smiled.
"Senior, what role do you play in this mission?" Qin Wentian asked.
"That of a commander, I will support the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord. Because immortal emperors aren't allowed to participate in this war, I will be the highest in command." Bai Wuya replied.
"I'm keen to join." Qin Wentian laughed. Unifying the thirteen prefectures...How could he reject such a mission? After that war on his particle world, he had vowed to uproot the entire Eastern Sage Immortal Sect and kill the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor. This was the reason why he was fighting.
"Okay, I will check with Mengchen then." Bai Wuya replied. "After accepting this mission, you are free to do what you want usually but once the summons are issued, you have to be there."
"Understood." Qin Wentian nodded. Since he accepted the mission, he would do his best to complete it.
"However I suggest that you put in effort in cultivating first. You won't need to participate even if there's a great battle in the short-term." Bai Wuya added. After all, Qin Wentian's cultivation base was still considered low. If war erupted, this would be considered an immortal battle. For those with weaker cultivations, they were useless in the grand scheme of things. Unless it was a minor mission, they wouldn't be able to affect things much. Bai Wuya also didn't want to waste too much of Qin Wentian's time.
After that, everyone dispersed. Qin Wentian and Purgatory returned to the palace which he resided in. A snowy white silhouette streaked over but it wasn't speeding towards Qin Wentian and was rather rushing towards Purgatory's embrace. Sadly, Purgatory's lips curled in disdain and instantly flung the white bundle of fur in her arms down onto the ground.
"Ai, Little Purgatory doesn't miss baobao at all." Little Rascal was tossed to the ground as he stated in a depressed manner.
"Scram!" Purgatory glared at Little Rascal. This little lecher was capable of great mischief despite his size. Staring at the two of them bantering, Qin Wentian smiled.
Right ahead, a flawless female silhouette appeared. Her robes fluttered in the wind, her expression was as soft as water as she stared at Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian stepped out, instantly arriving before Mo Qingcheng. His arms stretched out and embrace her on her willowy waist before giving a gentle kiss on her forehead. "Qingcheng, I'm back."
"Mhm." Mo Qingcheng nodded lightly.
"Little Purgatory, see how good the relationship between Wentian and Qingcheng is. Let us embrace each other as well!" Little Rascal floated in front of Purgatory and stretched his paws out. Purgatory glared at him and side-stepped, directly ignoring him.
"Little Purgatory, you don't know what love is!" Little Rascal sighed. Qin Wentian and Mo Qingcheng glanced over as they both broke out into laughter. This little rascal...he was truly something!
