AGM 225 - Reinforcement
Old Mo instantly froze when he heard Qin Wentian's words.
What status did he have? He was the Clan Lord of the Mo Clan, Mo Qingcheng's granddad, the strongest cultivator in Chu below the Heavenly Dipper Sovereigns. Qin Wentian, a youth with mediocre talent actually dared to talk this way to him?
"What did you just say?" Old Mo's countenance was extremely unsightly. He was already in a terrible mood after what happened to Qingcheng, and now with the impudence Qin Wentian was showing him, how could he tolerate it? Involuntarily, a terrifying pressure emanated forth from him.
"If you don't dare to kill him, I'll do it. Get. The. Fuck. Out. Of. My. Way." Qin Wentian was still coldly staring at Old Mo. He naturally understood that there was only one reason why Old Mo didn't dare to kill Hua Xiaoyun.
Old man Mo feared Hua Xiaoyun's background. Even when he knew Hua Xiaoyun was the one that led Mo Qingcheng into this state, he still didn't dare to kill him.
Narrowing his eyes, a murderous urge could be seen gleaming in Old Mo's gaze. He would feel more guilt if a member of the Mo Clan was the one confronting him, but since it was Qin Wentian, he had no such concern. Qin Wentian was seeking death.
Qin Wentian continued walking forwards, and his sarcastic tone of voice felt like slaps raining upon Old Mo's face. How could Old Mo tolerate Qin Wentian's impudence?
"Ignorant fellow." Old Mo sent out a palm strike towards Qin Wentian. However in that instant, a fierce wind gusted as an exceptionally sharp intent descended, causing the heart of Old Mo to tremble in fear. In that instant, he felt as though he was in mortal danger.
After the wind gusted past, a graceful silhouette appeared in front of him as though she had always been there,
The young lady casually stood there, her presence alone caused Old Mo to feel a bone-chilling sensation. He felt as though he would be lacerated into minced meat as long as the young lady in front of him willed it.
His palm froze halfway in motion, as his eyes grew as round as saucers. This veiled young lady, was at the Heavenly Dipper Realm. She was a Heavenly Dipper Sovereign.
Why would there be such a powerful character at the side of Qin Wentian?
"You are truly unqualified to be Qingcheng's granddad. If she recovers, so be it. But if anything happens to her, I shall personally send you to hell to accompany her." Qin Wentian stared straight into the eyes of Old Mo, the resoluteness of his determination so palpable that Old Mo involuntarily trembled.
He was actually threatened in this manner by someone of the junior generation. Glancing at the Heavenly Dipper Sovereign at the side of Qin Wentian, many question marks appeared in his mind.
If Old Mo showed some concern about matters of Chu, he would already have known about Qing`er. Sadly, how could such a small Chu Country be in his sights? In his eyes, Chu was just a speck of dust. How could he have high regards for Qin Wentian, a so-called 'genius' that originated from Chu?
Qin Wentian passed Old Mo by, his killing intent locking onto Hua Xiaoyun.
Hua Xiaoyun's eyes flashed, as he cast a glance at Qing`er. If Qing`er made a move, he wouldn't even have a chance to resist. But he wasn't that concerned about Qin Wentian. He was shocked only because he didn't expect that there would be someone in Chu that had the protection of a Heavenly Dipper Sovereign.
"I'm Hua Xiaoyun from the Moon Continent's Hua Clan, may I inquire who you are?" Hua Xiaoyun looked at Qing`er. As a Heavenly Dipper Sovereign, in addition to her age and beauty, he deduced that she most likely was also from the Grand Xia Empire.
Qing`er's brows creased every so slightly. She coldly shot a glance at Hua Xiaoyun before pointedly looked away. Her actions caused Hua Xiaoyun to stiffen. Qing`er was disregarding him, treating him like thin air.
"It doesn't matter who you are. You have to die regardless." Qin Wentian's aura magnified as an overwhelming demonic Qi filled the air. His inky black hair danced about in the wind, as the blood in his body seethed and surged. Rumbling sounds could be heard within, as his killing intent reached the skies, causing everyone in the vicinity to unconsciously take a few steps backwards.
Was this the number one genius of Chu? What a terrifying aura.
However, they heard that Hua Xiaoyun was someone at the fourth level of Yuanfu, the gap between him and Qin Wentian was too wide. Not only that, Hua Xiaoyun had already comprehended a Mandate. How could Qin Wentian stand against him?
Boom! The Yellow Springs Monument directly appeared, flying towards Hua Xiaoyun with explosive speed. Crimson beams of light could be seen channelling from Qin Wentian's body into the stone monument. Hua Xiaoyun's expression froze as he felt the circulation of blood in his body speeding up, as his heart pounded with increasing intensity.
"KILL!" Qin Wentian roared.
Buzz. A terrifying after-wind billowed, Qin Wentian transformed into a blurry shadow as he dashed towards Hua Xiaoyun. A boundless feeling of violence warped his demeanor so much that his current appearance resembled an ancient demon war god, an ancient-looking halberd appearing in his hands.
Hua Xiaoyun's aura also blasted out as well. With a wave of his sleeves, a resplendent golden halo appeared in front of him. Channeling his energy towards the halo, countless golden colored sharp swords flew madly towards Qin Wentian, with the intent to lacerate him from where he stood.
The terrifying golden swords were all imbued with fearsome penetrating capabilities. At the same time, the will of a Mandate slammed down onto Qin Wentian, causing him to feel as if his body was soon to be pierced through by these golden swords.
The ancient halberd in his hands weaved about in an intricate dance, creating beautiful arcs of Astral Light that obliterated the golden swords that came into contact with it. Simultaneously, as he was defending against this attack, Qin Wentian commanded the Yellow Springs Monument to slam into Hua Xiaoyun. Booming sounds rang out, as Hua Xiaoyun let out a pain-filled groan. The resonance caused by the blood Qi of the Yellow Springs Monument was too monstrous.
As Hua Xiaoyun retreated, a protective-type divine weapon in the form of a millstone, appeared in front of him. His expression was stone-cold, as he pointed towards the air. The golden light emitted from the millstone then enveloped the crimson glow of the stone monument.
A whistling sound could be heard from the Yellow Springs Monument, as the crimson light it emitted grew stronger and stronger. With a roar of rage, Qin Wentian channelled even more of his bloodline's power into it until the point where his senses became one with the stone monument. At this moment, he could sense a monstrously terrifying power residing in the Yellow Springs Monument, but sadly, he still didn't have the ability to fully control it.
"I want you to die." Qin Wentian stared at Hua Xiaoyun like he was staring at a dead man. Stepping forwards, the ground trembled with the force from his steps. His halberd moved at an extreme speed, while at the same time, the oppressive pressure of the stone monument bore down on Hua Xiaoyun.
Terror flashed in his eyes as he forcibly resisted against the pressure. Sending out a golden beam of light to knock the ancient halberd away, he eventually spat out a mouthful of blood as his countenance changed.
Without hesitation, Hua Xiaoyun immediately retreated, lengthening the distance between him and Qin Wentian.
Even if the Heavenly Dipper Sovereign didn't make a move, an incensed Qin Wentian was already sufficient to take his life.
This caused Hua Xiaoyun to feel as though he was in a dream. No matter what, he was still someone at the fourth level of Yuanfu.
"It must be due to the suppression caused by the stone monument. If not for that, I would have killed him easily," Hua Xiaoyun mused, this whole thing was too bizarre.
"I can't stay in Chu any longer." Hua Xiaoyun felt extremely depressed. Who would have thought that it would be so dangerous in Chu? What a humiliation.
An overwhelming killing intent pressed down behind him and he felt himself being enveloped by an ice-cold intent. Hua Xiaoyun stiffened as he turned his head. Boundless amounts of demonic Qi permeated the air, as a pair of demonic beast wings grew on Qin Wentian's back. His cold black eyes were like an abyss, telling Hua Xiaoyun that he would soon be a dead man. Qin Wentian wouldn't give up until he was dead.
"Reckless fool." Hua Xiaoyun's anger bubbled out.
Drawing the Astral Energy within his Yuanfu to its limits, Hua Xiaoyun's speed explosively increased as he shot towards the direction of the Dark Forest.
Swoosh! A raging wind gusted by, as a terrifying blood intent descended. Hua Xiaoyun grimaced, feeling as though his body was about to explode. Sweeping his glance backwards, he saw that the Yellow Springs Monument had somehow also grown a pair of wings similar to that of Qin Wentian, granting it an explosive increase in speed as it trailed closely behind him.
Halting his steps, his countenance grew incomparably sinister, and a golden sword emitting a terrifying sharpness appeared in his hands.
"BREAK!" A golden beam of light flashed, as Hua Xiaoyun sent out a slash of sword energy aimed at the stone monument. The stone monument shuddered for a moment, before brushing off his attack and continued trailing behind him. Terror seized him, as explosions went off in Hua Xiaoyun's mind. His attack was ineffective? If this went on, he would be pressured to death sooner or later.
"Young Master." At this moment, a voice drifted over. Hua Xiaoyun's gloomy expression faded, replaced with joy as he roared, "KILL HIM, KILL THE PERSON BEHIND ME!"
Several silhouettes appeared in the distance. The cultivation of the man in the lead was extremely frightening, he was also a Heavenly Dipper Sovereign. There were about five others behind him, all of them servants with a cultivation base at the third level of Yuanfu or below. Usually, these yuanfu cultivators would do odd jobs for him, while he would give them a pointer or two whenever he was free.
In the Grand Xia Empire, matters such as these were extremely ordinary. There would always be people willing to follow Heavenly Dipper Sovereigns around, even those from the transcendent powers. They didn't have outstanding talents, and it was almost impossible for them to climb to the top in the transcendent powers, hence, they would rather choose to serve under a Heavenly Dipper Sovereign in order to receive guidance on their path. Who knows, they might have a chance in the future to become one as well.
Even if these servants were at the third level of Yuanfu and below, in Chu, they were still considered experts. This was the difference between Chu and the Grand Xia Empire.
This Heavenly Dipper Sovereign was here because the matter in the Dark Forest had been concluded. He was under orders to go to the Mo Clan to fetch Hua Xiaoyun back. Never would he have imagined that in such a small place like Chu there would be someone wanting to kill the second young master of the Hua Clan. Maybe, the adage 'the foolish are fearless', was referring to this.
Even though Hua Xiaoyun in the Hua Clan couldn't be considered outstanding, he was still from the direct line of descent, after all. Not only that, the radiance of his elder brother's talent was extremely dazzling and thus, nobody had ever dared to bully him, be it inside the clan or outside of it. Maybe it was because of this, that he slowly became known as 'the useless second Young Master' behind his back.
The Heavenly Dipper Sovereign coldly glanced at Qin Wentian before he extended his hand, intending to grab him. A terrifying energy current howled, as it sped towards Qin Wentian.
However, at the same moment, a lotus manifested in front of Qin Wentian, as Qing`er's silhouette abruptly appeared, so beautiful that it was as though she transcended ephemeral beauty.
"You want to kill me? I WANT YOU TO DIE!" Hua Xiaoyun howled at Qin Wentian, when he saw that his followers had arrived, his countenance becoming increasingly malevolent.
Qin Wentian turned his gaze to Qing`er, Qing`er was as aloof as before. She glanced back at Qin Wentian as she stated in a clear, melodious voice, "This old man is not a problem for me, I can settle him."
A smile appeared on Qin Wentian's face as he glanced at Qing`er's ice-cool demeanor. However, as he turned his gaze onto Hua Xiaoyun, his fierce desire to kill rose up once more!
