Chapter 1211: Three Years
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Qin Wentian was truly injured very heavily this time around. The terrifying power of his bloodline wasn't something he could fully control yet. The moment he unleashed that, he would become extremely powerful. But once he expended all of his energy, he would be in an extremely weak state.
This demonic blood was too tyrannical, and originally, it shouldn't have awakened so early. But because of being in the sea of blood within the academy earlier, and if it wasn't because of his perfect physique, it wouldn't have awakened and he would have already died there. The awakening process was filled with incredible danger.
Back then when he was fleeing, he activated this ability and managed to kill Huang Dangtian and the other pursuers. After that, he entered a period of unprecedented weakness. This time, the weakness was even more serious because he not only used this ability, he was also heavily injured by Huang Shatian. If it wasn't for him possessing a second powerful bloodline, he wouldn't be able to endure and might have already died. After all, the him in this state of weakness, could not produce any immortal energy to heal his injuries and recover.
He could only depend on the ordinary astral energy within his body to recover.
The sacred academy in the air vanished after three months. Several geniuses who had grudges with each other, used that to find their opponent's location and fought many battles. As for the forces of Qin Wentian and Huang Shatian, they actually entered a cease-fire, no longer opting to battle. The war before caused heavy casualties on both sides and if they choose to continue, nobody would be able to anticipate what the ending would be.
As the time flowed by, everyone began focusing on cultivation, not daring to tarry. After all right now, they only had a period of three years.
In the blink of an eye, two years have already passed.
Within these two years, Qin Wentian was in a state of recovery but he didn't neglect his own cultivation. He would often enter mediation and cultivate his immortal energy, attempting to comprehend his laws. Although he suffered badly from that battle, it actually gave him more than a few insights. Only when fighting against peak experts like Huang Shatian who could already control a trace of immortal-king might, would he be able to sense it more clearly.
During these two years, Qing`er stepped into the sixth level. Now that her innate ability has been unsealed and after obtaining a trace of immortal-king might, her comprehension abilities towards spatial laws grew more and more terrifying. In the future when she attempted to reach the immortal king realm, her speed of cultivation would be way faster than before.
Right now, on the top of a huge rock in a certain mountain range, Qin Wentian stood there breathing in the air of the heavens and earth, feeling an extremely comfortable sensation coursing through his body.
"Are you feeling better?" Beside him, a beautiful fairy could be seen. It was none other than Mo Qingcheng.
"Mhm, I feel much better, I should be able to head out now." Qin Wentian smiled as he nodded.
"I heard that Huang Shatian's injuries have also recovered. Your injuries have yet to fully heal, it's better for you not to go out I think." Spatial fluctuations rocked the area as golden threads gradually manifested. Qing`er then appeared in front of Qin Wentian.
"Qing`er, your control over the trace of immortal-king might is getting more and more powerful." Qin Wentian smiled.
"I can now extend the laws of my body to a certain distance. Within that distance, I can instantly appear at any location." Qing`er spoke in a light tone of voice.
"The laws of space are truly mystical. I was truly fortunate in the battle against Huang Shatian back then. If it wasn't for him being secure of his victory and lowering his guard, that fusion attack might not have struck him." Qin Wentian thought back to the battle as he spoke.
"You were willing to endure so many injuries before unleashing that ultimate strike. Even if time reversed, he still wouldn't have been able to flee from that." Qing`er shook her head.
Qin Wentian smiled and spoke, "Qing`er, just from that trace of immortal king might you control, I can tell that immortal kings who are proficient in spatial law are definitely extremely terrifying characters. They can actually casually appear anywhere within the distance their law energy can reach. This is already teleportation."
"Yup." Qing`er nodded her head. For immortal kings who were proficient in spatial law, they possessed the power of teleportation. When fighting against such experts, unless you are strong enough to the extent where you can destroy all the area he can teleport to in one shot. If not, you won't be able to kill him."
"If that's the case, it would truly be too dangerous if Huang Shatian enters the immortal king realm." Qin Wentian mumbled. "I still have to go and cultivate. Huang Shatian is different from Huang Youdi, he is even more arrogant. After our last battle, he wouldn't act against me again in the sacred academy."
"Let me go with you then." Mo Qingcheng pulled on Qin Wentian's hand. Qin Wentian smiled and nodded. Qing`er didn't say anything but she also quietly walked over to Qin Wentian's side.
"Let's go." With two beauties accompany him, isn't that a joy?
Huang Shatian's injuries have indeed recovered. At this moment, he was standing before the Sky Connecting Immortal Rock and behind him, the experts of the Nine-Emperors Immortal Empire were there, including Huang Wudi.
"Do you really want to go into seclusion for a year? The battle two years ago... you should be able to kill him if you didn't underestimate him. Don't you intend to avenge that defeat?" Huang Wudi spoke in a low voice.
"Underestimate him?" Huang Shatian mocked. "Don't help me to find a reason. That battle, I fully intended to kill him yet the ending was that both of us were seriously injured. Given the difference in our cultivation bases, it's undoubtedly my loss. Since I'm already defeated, what qualifications do I have to fight with him here again? I will temporarily allow him and the daughter of the Evergreen Immortal Emperor to keep their lives."
After he spoke, Huang Shatian directly entered the immortal rock, stepping into the second level of the Sky Connecting Realm.
Huang Wudi sighed softly, he also wasn't worried that Qin Wentian would kill his way over. Because as long as Huang Shatian existed, Qin Wentian should understand this logic that if Huang Shatian wanted to kill someone, other than himself, there would be no one strong enough to block him. In fact, if Huang Shatian truly wanted to kill someone, Qin Wentian might not be able to obstruct him from doing so as well.
Hence, Qin Wentian wouldn't act unless he was extremely confident in being able to kill Huang Shatian directly.
Also, since Huang Shatian had no intention to start another battle. This meant that the fight between them would have to wait until they both return to the immortal realms.
In this last year of study, all the geniuses in the sacred academy let go of all their hatred, only focusing on their cultivation. Only when given a time limit did they discover how precious time was. They wanted to use every second fully, not wasting their time at all.
For this one year, Qin Wentian roamed all the secret realms for cultivation in the four sacred academies, slowly increasing his cultivation base. He believed that there wouldn't be a problem for him to step into the seventh-level before he exits the academy.
In that case, even without using his bloodline power, just depending on the strength of his cultivation base alone, most probably only opponents on Huang Shatian's level would be able to deal with him.
The time continued flowing by, the more, more people wanted time to slow down, they realized that time actually passed faster.
Three years have ended and today within the academy, the sound of the bell chimes rang out once more in all locations within. After that, a solemn voice echoed out in the minds of everyone.
For the last dao lecture, it wouldn't be split into four separate academies. The 20,000 geniuses in the academy would all go to the same location for the lecture.
The location of the dao lecture this time around, was in the Sky Connecting Realm.
At this moment, the Sky Connecting Realm totally transformed. In the central region of the realm, each and every sky connecting pillars radiated a boundless immortal light that shot up into the skies where there seemed to be a boundlessly vast piece of starry sky over there.
These stone pillars were now the immortal seats for the various geniuses so they can listen to the last dao lecture of the academy. Numerous figures flew over. When they inclined their heads and saw the vast starry skies, they could see resplendent beams of astral light cascading down, illuminating a constellation diagram below that was terrifying to the extreme. This constellation was absorbing the astral light and emitting a brilliance of its own.
This Sky Connecting Realm seemed to truly be able to connect to the sky.
Qin Wentian, Qing`er and Mo Qingcheng arrived here. Behind them, Purgatory was carrying Little Rascal, following along. Little Rascal had a look of enjoyment on its face while Purgatory had a look of disdain on her face. This shameless little dog.
Many figures landed beside Qin Wentian, these were all experts from the Battle Saint Tribe.
"Wentian." Nanfeng Yunxi and Nanfeng Shengge appeared. After that, the other maidens of the Southern Phoenix Clan walked over.
"Yunxi, Shengge." Qin Wentian smiled as he called out. "Let us proceed."
"Mhm." They continued walking forward, moving in the direction of the Sky Connecting Rock. Over there, there was a figure standing quietly with his hands clasped behind his back.
When Qin Wentian's gaze landed on the figure, his eyes gleamed with sharpness. After that, he only saw the figure slowly turning around, glancing at him and Qing`er. The calmness in that figure's eyes was as calm as ever and an instant later, his silhouette flashed as he re-appeared once again on a sky connecting pillar at the frontmost segment.
Over at the front, the experts of the Nine-Emperors Immortal Empire, the White Tiger Race, the Thundergod Hall and the Skymist Immortal Empire were all staring coldly over, radiating killing intent.
"After this last dao lecture, we will all return to the immortal realms. That time would be the date of your death!" A terrifying baleful energy gushed forth from White-eye. In the Sky Connecting Realm, the entire White Tiger Race had never received such an intense humiliation before.
"I really want to see whose doomsday it would be." A holy maiden spoke coldly, her eyes flashing with ruthlessness. When had the Southern Phoenix Clan been afraid of any challenges before?
"Let's go up." Qin Wentian didn't even bother glancing at these people. It was pointless to talk with words. He knew the other party wanted nothing more than to tear him into a million pieces, but didn't he feel the same way as well?
After that, the figures here all soared up, landing on a stone pillar as they were enveloped by astral light.
From all locations of the sacred academy, countless experts flew over. When everyone finally arrived, they discovered that the diagram on the surface begin to shine with an incomparable intense light. A moment later, they only felt this entire space shifting away as they appeared once more in the starry skies. The sacred academies had all disappeared.
There was only the Sky Connecting Realm now. It seemed that it wasn't a rumor, the Sky Connecting Realm could truly connect to the sky.
