Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: - -
After Qin Wentian left, the year-end examination of the Divine Weapon Academy continued. However, the atmosphere was completely spoiled. The thoughts of many already drifted over to the drama that would be happening tomorrow.
At the same time, everyone in the Sacred Royal City also started to gather at the Sacred Battle Platform.
Although there were an insane number of people who gathered back during the opening of the Immortal Martial Realm, when placed in perspective compared to the entire Royal Sacred Region, a few million people was just a drop of water in the ocean. The vast majority of people in the Sacred Royal City had never seen Qin Wentian before, they had only heard of the happenings in the Immortal Martial Realm.
He was the number one ranker of the Immortal Martial Realm, he killed one of the princes of Grand Shang, Shang Tong. An elder from the Royal Sacred Sect died because of him, he was the companion of the Holy Maiden from the Medicine Sovereign Valley, the son-in-law of the Medicine Sovereign, a disciple of the Battle Sword Sect that broke the sword-comprehension record, and the person with the number one latent potential in the Heavenly Dipper Realm of all the members in the Battle Sword Sect. There were simply too many laurels, causing the number of halos on him to be almost countless.
Also, for this battle, he wasn't fighting against a random someone. His opponent was one of the eight absolute era-suppressing geniuses, Di Shi of the supreme Di Clan.
In a hundred-mile radius around the Sacred Battle Platform, there were tens of thousands of people flying in the sky. Countless experts were heading towards the Battle Platform, causing the inns and hotels to be fully filled.
Tonight, nobody was sleeping. Countless people were in discussion about the genuineness of the younger generation in the Royal Sacred Region.
There were rumors saying that Gu Liufeng might have already left the Royal Sacred Region, while Hua Taixu had joined the Royal Sacred Sect. And other than the two of them, out of the other six era-suppressing geniuses, four of them had already arrived here.
There were also many experts from the Celestial Maiden Sect that came, and naturally, the maiden with the title 'number one beauty under the heavens,' Lin Xian`er, attracted the gazes of countless people.
Those characters from the upper echelons of the supreme Di Clan were here as well, including many experts from Grand Shang Empire. Even quite a few Sword Sovereigns from the Battle Sword Sect dropped by here...
In any case, the area where the Sacred Battle Platform was located, was completely flooded with people. This night, many conflicts erupted in a hundred mile radius around the Sacred Battle Platform. There were many who speculated wildly in intense discussion on who the ultimate winner between Di Shi and Qin Wentian would be.
This night, many people couldn't sleep. Many spectators arrived through the night, leading to a completely crowded location in the morning. Those who weren't at the Celestial Phenomenon level, or those that didn't belong to any major powers didn't dare to fly through the air above the heads of others. If you weren't strong and have no background, but still insisted on flying past the heads of so many experts, wasn't that simply courting death?
The sun rose and its rays illuminated the Sacred Battle Platform, causing the battle platform to be basked in a golden glow.
There were spectator stands in all eight directions and the space was sufficient for several tens of thousands of people. Although right now the Sacred Battle Platform was still empty, the vast majority of the seats were already filled up.
"The sun is already high up in the sky, it's about time, isn't it?" At this moment, whistling sounds rang out through the air, causing the hearts of many to tremble. The kind of people daring to fly above the heads of others were undoubtedly top-tier powers of the Royal Sacred Region. Only then did the crowd below bear the humiliation.
"Di Shi," somebody exclaimed in surprise when they saw the person in the lead. Di Shi's eyes gleamed with sharpness, his expression was harsh, and he exuded an extremely savage aura, akin to a primordial bird of prey. His gaze seemed normal, but from his eyes, one could feel a terrifying eruption of the energy within.
"Is he Di Shi? He actually is the first to arrive. Seems like he has prepared for this battle for a very long time." The crowd instantly broke out into discussion.
Di Shi was the first to step on the Sacred Battle Platform. The figures behind him were none other than experts from the supreme Di Clan. Their aura was extremely terrifying, and they headed over to one of the eight spectator stands there, folding their sleeves as they sat down.
Di Shi sat down as well. His eyes closed as he retracted his aura, waiting silently for his opponent.
And not too long later, yet another group of silhouettes whistled through the air as their arrival caused another wave to erupt among the spectators. These people were all from the Grand Shang Empire. The person in the lead had a crown on his head, his eyes exuded the air of a dragon, high up and mighty. It seemed as though the whole world was under his control just from the presence he emitted.
"It's Prince Shang Yin of Grand Shang Empire. Twenty years ago, he was ranked fourth in the Immortal Martial Realm Rankings. He has superb talent, terrifying combat prowess and is a disciple of the Royal Sacred Sect. Now that Shang Tong has died, it is rumored that the Emperor of Grand Shang has decided to name him as the crown prince, and intends to pass on the throne of the emperor to him in the future. Now it seems that, that rumor is real." Many people exclaimed. Shang Yin had a crown on his head, a high and mighty figure.
"The experts from the Violet Thunder Sect are here as well." From afar, thunder rumbled throughout the sky as many experts descended. These were all disciples of the one of the Nine Great Sects, the Violet Thunder Sect.
After the Violet Thunder Sect, others from the rest of the Nine Great Sects all appeared. And after them, the Chi Clan from the Western Domain, and the Tianfan Sect, as well as some other powers, also showed up.
Chi Lian and Fan Mengyu of the eight era-suppressing geniuses arrived, instantly attracting a multitude of stares.
However, very quickly the gazes of the crowd shifted away again. Those of the Celestial Maiden Sect appeared, and Lin Xian`er, the number one beauty under the heavens was within them. That flawless countenance of hers instantly caused many males in the crowd to slip into a daze.
Before Lin Xian`er arrived, Fan Mengyu, as well as the Princess Jiao Yang of Grand Zhou, had appeared. The two of them could also be considered very beautiful, yet their beauty was overshadowed by Lin Xian`er.
"The experts from the Radiant Gold ancient country arrived."
"The experts from the War Country arrived."
"Li Tian of the eight era-suppressing geniuses is here as well."
The crowd exclaimed unceasingly. Today, the Sacred Battle Platform was destined to be extremely dazzling, there would be countless superstrong experts arriving.
And at this moment, a group of people from afar walked over. The person in the lead was clad in simple clothing yet he exuded the aura of tyrannical majesty, similar to Shang Yin of Grand Shang Empire.
"The Human Emperor of Ye, Ye Qingyun." Some recognized him as many exclaimed in surprise. Even the Human Emperor had personally arrived.
"Ye Qingyun is the foster father of Qin Wentian. Earlier, he missed it when Qin Wentian was crowned the top ranker of the Immortal Martial Realm. And this time, he is here specifically to root for Qin Wentian, hoping that Qin Wentian would be able to dominate an era-suppressing genius."
"Father," A voice echoed out. A look of joy flashed on Ye Qingyun's face as he turned in that direction. Ye Lingshuang and her fellow experts from the Battle Sword Sect had arrived.
"Those of the Battle Sword Sect are here."
"Why has Qin Wentian not appeared yet?"
The gazes of the crowd roamed about, yet they didn't see Qin Wentian.
At this moment, Di Shi's eyes abruptly opened, gleaming with sharpness as he stared in the direction of those from the Battle Sword Sect. He coldly spoke, "Could it be that Qin Wentian wished to dodge this battle and didn't dare to turn up?"
"Junior brother Qin set out before us, he should already be in the Sacred Royal City," A voice replied. The person who spoke was none other than Lin Shuai, his words causing many people to turn their attention to him, as well as Ji Feixue who was by his side. Yet another of the era-suppressing geniuses had appeared.
Di Shi coldly snorted, before closing his eyes once more.
The people in the spectator stands grew increasingly more numerous, there was already a countless number of famous people.
And in a certain part of the spectator stands, there was a group of experts waiting there. These were none other than the people from the Divine Weapon Academy, and Wang Yunfei was in their midst.
Other than Wang Yunfei, Rong Yan, Shen Jing, and Moon were there as well.
"Senior, this platform is the only platform in the world that is your stage," Shen Jing smiled. She was as beautiful and elegant as ever, yet right now she couldn't really be said to be dazzling. There were simply too many females in the spectator stands that were many times more outstanding compared to her.
Wang Yunfei nodded his head lightly. He too, was filled with anticipation. Would the Sacred Battle Platform be the place where he, Wang Yunfei, became famous through the Royal Sacred Region? In fact, he had long wanted to try challenging people on this platform and now, he made use of the crowd drawn here by the battle between Qin Wentian and Di Shi so he could use this opportunity to make himself famous.
"I only fear that a certain someone had already fled, he won't dare to appear," Rong Yan mocked as he stared at Moon. Today, if that apprentice does not turn up, Moon would become the slave of Wang Yunfei. In that case, he could very well imagine Moon's future. What a pity, such a beautiful woman would become a plaything of Wang Yunfei.
"He isn't such a person, he will definitely show up." Moon's brows were furrowed. She believed in Qin Wentian.
"Are you so confident?" Shen Jing laughed coldly, "Or could it be that something already happened between you two? Were your feelings played by him?"
Moon regarded Shen Jing with a glacial gleam in her eyes. Shen Jing continued sarcastically, "Look, so many experts are descending here. When he sees such a majestic scene, would he even dare to appear? Or do you think he would hole up in his shell?"
Upon hearing her mockery, Moon replied, "Maybe he will be the same as yesterday, birthing fourth-ranked divine inscriptions with every step and appearing on this stage in a most magnificent manner. As for you, yesterday you could only look up to him in admiration, not daring to say anything in response."
Shen Jing froze, she stared at Moon with disbelief before adding in a low voice, "You are truly crazy."
After speaking, she turned her gaze away, no longer looking at Moon.
And at this moment, roars of excitement echoed out, growing increasingly louder. A terrifying sound wave undulated as above in the sky, the silhouette of a young man appeared as the countless gazes of the spectators all shifted onto him.
"Qin Wentian has arrived!"
"Is he that Qin Wentian that's the top ranker of the Immortal Martial Realm?"
The good-looking young man was clad in a clean and simple white robe, his long hair fluttering in the wind, as he casually stood in the air, giving people a feeling of unmatched magnificence through the generations.
"Wentian, you are here." The Human Emperor laughed.
"Foster Father," Qin Wentian nodded to the Human Emperor.
"Junior brother Qin," Lin Shuai and the others from the Battle Sword Sect also greeted Qin Wentian.
"Sir Qin, we meet again," Lin Xian`er from the Celestial Maiden Sect walked up as she smiled sweetly to Qin Wentian.
"Wentian," A voice from afar echoed out. After that, the crowd only saw a group of maidens flying over. The woman in the lead had an empire-toppling appearance that wasn't in anyway inferior to Lin Xian`er's, and possessed of an even purer demeanor..
"Qingcheng," Qin Wentian laughed as he walked to Mo Qingcheng and held her hand. The two of them then stood together, appearing to be akin to a golden couple, a match made in heaven.
"Is he Qin Wentian?" Wang Yunfei stared at the silhouette of that young man as his expression twitched.
Shen Jing's eyes glowed with an unusual light when she stared at Qin Wentian and Mo Qingcheng. Somehow, a feeling of inferiority bloomed in her heart; she no longer exuded arrogance. Shen Jing then murmured, "These are the real Heaven Chosen of the Royal Sacred Region."
The attention of everyone was instantly drawn when he appeared.
Rong Yan stared at Qin Wentian as he sighed in his heart. There was no way for him to be comparable to such a genius at all.
Moon turned her gaze upon Qin Wentian, and for some reason, she involuntarily recalled another figure.
"Seems like the person you are waiting for decided not to appear. Moon, just accept your fate," Shen Jing sarcastically replied. Did Moon really think that that apprentice would show up in a dazzling fashion? Utterly ridiculous.
And just as the sound of Shen Jing's voice faded, Qin Wentian gazed at Mo Qingcheng as he spoke in a low voice, "Let me go greet a friend of mine first."
Mo Qingcheng nodded her head lightly. After that Qin Wentian stepped forth and to the surprise of Shen Jing, she realized that his gaze was directed over their way. Her heart couldn't help but to pound faster as he approached.
Moon's beautiful eyes stiffened a little. She stared at that pair of eyes. The light in them seemed to contain a very strong sense of familiarity to her.
"Moon!" Qin Wentian called out. Instantly, Moon froze, even her breathing stopped. That familiar voice, she naturally knew who it was. However right now, she was incomparably shocked, even more shocked compared to back then when he birthed fourth-ranked inscriptions with every step he took.
Wentian, Tianwen. Qin Wentian appeared here in an even more magnificent manner compared to his exhibiting his attainments, akin to the descent of a Heavenly God!
