AGM 323 - Finding Trouble
While Qin Wentian was trapped in the cave, a major event happened in the Unmatched Realm-Fatty had fallen in love!
But if it were merely a case of Fatty being in love, this wouldn't be considered such a big matter. The problem was the target of his love, Xuan Xin, was the little princess of the Mystic Maiden Palace.
Consequently, this became more than a big issue.
Fatty was about to get married!
The Mystic Maiden Palace was different from the many other powers out there, they only accepted female disciples and each female must have an extremely high degree of talent before becoming core members. The little princess of the Mystic Maiden Palace, Xuan Xin, was one such disciple.
At this moment in the Unmatched Realm, a group of figures all clustered together. Among them was Wang Xiao's girl friend Qiao Xuan and also Liu Xi who was once bashed up by Qin Wentian. Normally, they would be jealous of Xuan Xin, but right now, their faces only reflected ice-cold rage when they saw the shameless figure of Fatty in the distance.
Fatty Fan Le, was one of Qin Wentian's buddies.
"Xuan Xin, come here." Li Shiyu, one of the Mystic Maiden Palace's disciples called out. She had a cultivation base at the eighth level of Yuanfu and was a chosen of her sect. Yet despite how outstanding she was, she didn't get the title of 'Princess'.
"Sister Shiyu, we are truly in love with each other." Xuan Xin stared at the crowd from the Mystic Maiden Palace, feeling a little scared.
"Xuan Xin, don't be fooled by the flowery words of this fatty." Li Shiyu's tone was ice cold and brooked no arguments. "Come here first."
"Forget it, Sister Shiyu." Xuan Xin pulled on Fan Le's hand, feeling more than a little terrified. Fan Le squeezed her hands tightly, and in front of many murderous stares, he puffed his chests outwards, exuding a manly aura. Initially, this was a move that could touch the hearts of girls, but when Fan Le did it, it made those watching from the side feel like laughing instead. They were all thinking a beautiful flower like Xuan Xin was going to be wasted on Fan Le-for the handsome young lads in the Unmatched Realm, this was completely unacceptable.
"I will take Xuan Xin as my wife," Fan Le seriously stated. This time, his heart had been truly moved by this naive and radiant young girl. Xuan Xin was extremely intelligent, and in fact knew that Fan Le was bragging to her many times, but she had never exposed his lies. She simply enjoyed being in Fan Le's company and loved the fact that he could always make her laugh.
"You want to take Xuan Xin as your wife? What qualifications do you have? Stop dreaming," Li Shiyu icily shot back. "Do you know of Xuan Xin's identity?"
"Someone who doesn't know how tall the Heavens are and how wide the Earth is, an ugly toad lusting after a beautiful swan." Lin Haotian had his arms crossed in front of his chest as he spat out. The girls of the Mystic Maiden Sect had always been the target of many talented geniuses from the Azure Continent. Who would have thought this fatty would manage to win the heart of the little princess?"Li Shiyu, in the Unmatched Realm, even you wouldn't be able to do anything to him. If he really loves the little princess, why don't you give him a chance and ask if he's willing to follow you girls back to the Mystic Maiden Palace." Yue Bingying had a slight smile on her face, she had been seeking Qin Wentian's whereabouts for many months but to no avail.
All this time, it seemed that Qin Wentian had been intentionally avoiding her, and now an opportunity had fallen into her lap. She'd heard that Fan Le was a close friend of Qin Wentian, so if something were to happen to Fan Le, Qin Wentian would surely appear right?
"Yeah, Xuan Xin, since he says he loves you, why don't you ask him if he dares to follow us back to the Mystic Maiden Palace?" Li Shiyu spoke to Xuan Xin while staring at Fan Le.
Xuan Xin shook her head, "No, I won't let him go there."
"You..." Li Shiyu's expression faltered and abruptly turned menacing.
"Oi, Li Shiyu, I think my friend is quite compatible with Xuan Xin. Why are you making such a commotion, don't tell me nobody wants you?" A straightforward voice filled with unabashed laughter drifted over. Li Shiyu shifted her gaze in that direction and soon noticed Ouyang Kuangsheng and a few other figures walking towards them. The one who spoke was naturally Ouyang Kuangsheng.
"Ouyang Kuangsheng, don't think I won't dare to make a move against you just because you're from the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan. You better watch your words," Li Shiyu coldly replied.
"Wait, have I hit the nail right on the head? You are afraid of being left on the shelves. Don't worry about it, have you met my good friend Chu Mang? His talent is outstanding and should be pretty compatible with you. Why don't you consider him?" Ouyang Kuangsheng laughed and pointed to Chu Mang, his actions causing Chu Mang to glance at Li Shiyu before he dumbly replied in a low voice, "I don't want her..."
As the sound of his voice faded, the expression on everyone's faces froze. Even Ouyang Kuangsheng was stunned by Chu Mang's directness. Chu Mang really was too adorable.Li Shiyu face immediately darkened with violence. The surrounding crowd all perspired, Chu Mang's words implied that even if Li Shiyu were to be wrapped up and presented to him as a gift, he still wouldn't want her. Not only that, his tone had been serious when he had spoken earlier.
"All of you, good. Very good." A coldness radiated from Li Shiyu while momentarily, an overwhelming pressure also erupted forth from the other maidens. The crowd instantly took several steps back, giving the two parties some space. Ouyang Kuangsheng frowned, if they fought now, his side would definitely end up in dire straits.
There were a total of five people from the Mystic Maiden Palace. One was at the eighth level of Yuanfu, while two others at the seventh level and the remaining two at the sixth level.
And on the side of Fatty, other than Xuan Xin, there was only Chu Mang and Ouyang Kuangsheng. Evidently, their combat prowess level was lower in comparison as they only had two at the seventh level and one at the sixth level. They would undoubtedly suffer if they were to battle.
There were others from the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan, like Ouyang Ting, who were present as well. Duan Qingshan had already gone to make his preparations for breaking through to Heavenly Dipper while Ouyang Ting chose to remain behind in the Unmatched Realm to cultivate. Currently, she was already at the sixth level of Yuanfu but of course, she wouldn't act to help them. This whole matter was just Ouyang Kuangsheng wanting to help his friends from the outside and had nothing to do with their Ouyang Clan. If Ouyang Kuangsheng wanted to help, let him settle this on his own then.
From afar, a human and a demonic beast were flying through the air. They couldn't help but be startled when they saw the gathering crowd below.
This person was none other than Qin Wentian. He saw that Fan Le and the rest of his friends were in the middle of a confrontation with another group of people.
"What's going on?" Increasing his speed, Qin Wentian moved like the wind as he zoomed towards the crowd. Upon hearing the whistling in the air, the crowd turned their heads as they momentarily stiffened.
Qin Wentian had finally appeared.
Several people in the crowd turned their gazes towards Yue Bingying; they knew that she had been looking for Qin Wentian for quite some time, but hadn't been successful. Before this, Qin Wentian had seemingly disappeared without a trace, as though he'd been purposefully avoiding her.
"You finally showed your face." Ouyang Kuangsheng hadn't seen Qin Wentian for a very long time, and he couldn't help but smile when he saw his brother had finally appeared.
Qin Wentian stood in mid-air, yet there were a group of people blocking his path. These people were none other than a small group of members from the Sword Extinction Sect.Lin Haotian slowly walked out, coming face to face with Qin Wentian.
"You finally got tired of hiding?" Lin Haotian's gaze was as sharp as a sword, piercing straight through Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian swept his gaze over to him, this was the same guy who broke his concentration during that critical moment back then. From what Cang Lan said, this person was a lackey chosen by Situ Po's companion to arrange a meeting with him.
"Fatty, did you stir up trouble again?"
Qin Wentian only cast a single glance at Lin Haotian before shifting his gaze over to Fan Le. Seeing how Xuan Xin was totally in love with Fan Le, Qin Wentian couldn't help cursing Fatty in his heart. This fatty was truly a genius, he had even managed to woo Xuan Xin.
Qin Wentian was already praying for Xuan Xin in his heart. How would this adorable young lady stand the shamelessness of Fan Le in the future?
"I'm mutually in love with Xuan Xin, how is this called stirring up trouble?" Fatty unabashedly replied, "However I didn't know until recently that Xuan Xin was the little princess of the Mystic Maiden Palace."
Fatty grinned, the corners of his lips contained an apparent sense of pride. His girlfriend was a princess of the Mystic Maiden Palace!
"I see." Qin Wentian instantly understood the situation, his admiration for Fatty reached a new level.
"However, it doesn't look like I'm the only one that wants to 'stir up trouble'." Fan Le glanced at Lin Haotian who was blocking Qin Wentian's path. This person was rumored to be an extremely powerful opponent, someone that was selected to be groomed as a chosen for the Sword Extinction Sect. His radiance was only overshadowed by Situ Po-if not for that, he would be the number one among the younger generation in his sect.
"You better worry about yourself first before acting the hero. How should we deal with this unresolved issue between us?" Lin Haotian's voice was like a sharp sword as he stared hard at Qin Wentian, "You told me to scram the last time we met, but now you don't have your Divine Inscriptions to protect you. I'd like to see how you plan to clear things up."
"Indeed, it's about time to settle the matter between us." Qin Wentian nodded seriously. Interrupting his breakthrough at the most critical moment and now Lin Haotian even dared to look for him on his own accord to 'settle' the matter? In any case, in the world of cultivation, power determined whether one was right or wrong.
"Tell me, how do you think we should settle it?" Qin Wentian stared at Lin Haotian as he asked.
Lin Haotian glanced at Yue Bingying who was standing nearby. Qin Wentian followed his gaze as he recalled her identity. She was a woman from the Azure Emperor Palace that he might have to meet again in the future. After all when he grew stronger, he still had to restructure the Azure Emperor Palace and take back the authority which rightfully belonged to him.
"You guys try him out to see if he's qualified for me to spar against. If he isn't capable enough, do whatever you see fit," Yue Bingying casually stated. The truth was that she was exceedingly curious and merely wanted to see Qin Wentian's capabilities with her own eyes. As someone who obtained the approval of all thirty-six halls, she wanted to compare Qin Wentian's strength to that of her companion, Situ Po.
However, Qin Wentian actually rejected her.
Qin Wentian coldly laughed. Yue Bingying truly overestimated herself. She wanted to fight against him and so he must appear?
Sword light flashed as the two experts from the Sword Extinction Sect made their move. At the same time, Lin Haotian's sword left its sheath as well. Overflowing sword intent gushed forth from him-he knew that even with the assistance of his two fellow disciples, it was still impossible to defeat Qin Wentian. After all, Qin Wentian once dominated Liu Xi who was at the peak of the sixth level.
The swordsmen transformed into two streams of light as they instantly shot towards Qin Wentian. Yet, the expected sounds of slashing didn't ring out. The crowd turned their heads and froze, their expressions stunned when they saw the swordsmen had been stopped in mid-air. Despite their momentum and the driving force of their sword slashes, they were unable to maneuver their swords a single inch forward.
The very edges of their swords were firmly gripped by his bare hands!
