Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: - -
"Big Bro Chu Mang, Fan Le and Ouyang were separated from you very early on?" Qin Wentian recalled their companions. Chu Mang nodded and spoke, "Back then we split from each other after we left the Royal Sacred Region. However, they agreed to meet in the Unmatched Realm, so if we head over there, we should be able to find them."
"Mhm, very soon, I will be holding my wedding with Qingcheng. If those fellows dare to not show up, I won't spare them." Qin Wentian laughed. He first returned with Qingcheng to Chu, but he would still need to make a trip to Grand Xia. Firstly, it was to invite his brothers to his wedding. Secondly, there was also another matter which he needed to settle.
"If they dare to not show up at your wedding, I will be the first not to spare them." Chu Mang laughed happily. Qin Wentian and Mo Qingcheng were going to get married soon? What a happy occasion. Back then when he heard Qin Wentian barged up the Pill Emperor Hall alone, those companions of his all felt extremely agonized in their hearts. Luckily, everything was now over. The Pill Emperor Hall was nothing to Qin Wentian now. He was a disciple of the Battle Sword Sect, and the foster-son of the Human Emperor of ancient Ye. Just a single statement from him could cause the entire Pill Emperor Hall to vanish into nothingness.
Chu Mang had left the Royal Sacred Region for quite some time, he didn't know that Qin Wentian had already left the Battle Sword Sect in order to prevent the Battle Sword Sect from being implicated because of the conflict between him and the Royal Sacred Sect. After all, the Battle Sword Sect was one of the nine great sects that were subordinate to the Royal Sacred Sect.
The new comers were invited in to be seated and after they exchanged conversational greetings, Qin Wentian stared at Chu Wuwei as he asked, "What's going on with the Greencloud Imperial Empire?"
As he spoke, he glanced at Ling Yue. Ling Yue was someone from the Greencloud Pavilion, she should know of some things as well.
"I went to the Mo Residence this morning and wanted to consult with you on some things. The Greencloud Imperial Empire is naturally a power formed by the Greencloud Pavilion. Their purpose is to gather the ten countries under them together, and forming into one huge empire. They were very strict with regards to their methods of control and I don't have the ability to change any of their decisions." Chu Wuwei replied.
Ling Yue nodded in agreement.
"Ling Yue, is this the intention of old man Greencloud?" Qin Wentian inquired. Ling Yue started and glanced at Qin Wentian. But right now, she could accept the fact that Qin Wentian was acquainted with old man Greencloud. After all, with the strength he showed earlier, his cultivation base should be at a very high level. It was very possible that he had interactions with the upper echelons of the Greencloud Pavilion before.
"Old man Greencloud left the Greencloud Pavilion long ago. After the Nine Mystical Palace was destroyed, the second Celestial Phenomenon Ascendant of our Greencloud Pavilion was born. He claimed himself as the master and was truly powerful. He engaged old man Greencloud in a battle for the rights of control of the Greencloud Pavilion. At the end...old man Greencloud was defeated. Hence, he could only choose to leave Greencloud Pavilion and roam the world.
"Two Celestial Phenomenon Ascendants in one sect, shouldn't that add to the power of Greencloud Pavilion instead? Why would there be an internal conflict?" Qin Wentian asked bewilderedly. Back then, the Great Solar Chen Clan was so powerful simply because they had three ascendants. The existence of a Celestial Phenomenon Ascendant in Grand Xia was extraordinary, they could become the leaders of a transcendent power.
"The Greencloud Sovereign is powerful and ambitious. His relationship with old man Greencloud wasn't harmonious and wanted absolute control over the sect. For those who disagree with him, although he wouldn't go as far as to injure or kill them, he shunted them to a branch of Greencloud Pavilion where they would receive no power nor benefits. Gongyang Hong and Qian Mengyu were the ones who objected to the forming of Greencloud Imperial Empire back then and now...they no longer have any authority in the Greencloud Pavilion.
Qin Wentian's brows twitched. Seems like the strength of this new ascendant was very formidable. He was someone who had an extremely strong desire to be in control.
Although old man Greencloud became an ascendant long before the Greencloud Sovereign, at the lower levels, how powerful someone is in the Celestial Phenomenon Realm wasn't determined by the amount of time they have broken through to Celestial Phenomenon. In the Celestial Phenomenon Realm, the difference in the constellation condensed may lead to a very vast disparity in strength.
"The status of the branch I'm in has already weakened. Those in the upper echelons hope that I can marry someone from Misty Peak, thereby improving the relationship between the two transcendent powers. In fact, these marriage alliance happened several times. It was precisely because of this matter that I decided to travel about to ease my heart." Ling Yue lowered her head and spoke. In fact, her branch in Greencloud Pavilion had an extraordinary status but now because of the rise of the new Greencloud Sovereign, they had to listen to his orders."
"I see." Qin Wentian nodded his head. He smiled at Ling Yue as he continued, "Ling Yue, don't go back to Greencloud Pavilion temporarily. Just stay and have fun in Chu, allowing Mo Feng to accompany you. Your family members will understand in the future."
When Ling Yue heard Qin Wentian's words, she felt a sense of strangeness. But noting the concern in his eyes, she didn't reject it. Qin Wentian was surely suggesting for her own good, and hence, she nodded, "Okay."
Chu Wuwei didn't continue on with the Greencloud Imperial Empire conversation. Since Qin Wentian already knew about this, the Greencloud Imperial Empire would cease being a problem.
And as they chatted on, there were some others who arrived at the inn. Many major powers in Chu all personally came by to pay a visit and among them, Mu Rou's clan and experts from the Divine Weapon Pavilion which Qin Wentian was acquainted with in the past all showed up. However, the vice president An Liuyan didn't show up, she must have already left Chu.
Of those who arrived, only Mu Rou's father was invited up to their room. The others all watched from outside but didn't dare to have any thoughts. Even the Emperor of Chu, Chu Wuwei, had personally paid a visit. How would they have any temper even if they are left waiting outside?
However, at this moment, when a few others arrived, Qin Wentian personally went out to welcome them. Staring at these silhouettes, Qin Wentian dipped into a bow, "Old Gu, Senior Ren, teacher Mustang. Wentian was still planning to drop by the Emperor Star Academy to pay my respects to you all later."
Ever since Qin Wentian returned to the Royal Capital from the Sky Harmony City, he and Mo Qingcheng always had a thought to return to the Emperor Star Academy. It was just because Mo Yu that little lass dragged them over here, and hence, it resulted in those of the Emperor Star Academy taking the initiative and came over here instead.
"Haha Wentian, you don't need to be so polite with us old fellows." Ren Qianxing walked up in a hurry and stopped Qin Wentian from bowing. He had heard of Qin Wentian's exploits from Mustang, flipping the entire Grand Xia topsy turvy. If based on their current strength, he would still have to refer to Qin Wentian as his senior.
"Little brat, what did you call me?" Old Gu sat atop a demonic beast and crossed his arms before his chest as he narrowed his eyes at Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian laughed as he bowed again, "Wentian greets grandfather."
"HAHAHA. Good, good!" Old Gu also came forward and supported Qin Wentian up, he had a face filled with smile.
"Grandfather, Qingcheng originally planned to visit you before this. Is your body still well?" Mo Qingcheng passed Little Xin`er to Mo Yu and walked up and hugged Old Gu's arms, as though returning back to the times of her youth.
"Teacher, are you doing fine?" Qin Wentian smiled at Mustang.
"How can I not be fine? However for your senior sister Luo Huan, she's still outside getting busy about your matter." Mustang laughed.
"I will go fetch senior sis back to Chu in a few days time." Qin Wentian smiled. "I'm getting married to Qingcheng soon. Teacher, you are my elder and must definitely be one of the witnesses for our marriage okay?"
"Okay, I, this bag of old bones, am still fit and moving. Of course I will be one of the witnesses." Mustang happily nodded his head. His most outstanding student has finally brought the most beautiful woman in Chu home. Old Gu was the maternal grandfather of Mo Qingcheng!
"Hmph." Old Gu coughed, causing Mustang to smile awkwardly. "Teacher..."
"Useless fellow, you are the teacher of Qin Wentian. This time, consider it advantageous to you, on the day of the wedding you shall be ranked equally with me." Old Gu joked as everyone laughed uproariously. The relationship between these people of three generations was truly heartwarming.
The elegant rooms in the inn were completely full, everyone crowded around Qin Wentian and asked about his experience. The atmosphere was joyous and harmonious and the people only departed after a long while.
Qin Wentian and Mo Qingcheng returned together to the Mo Residence. Mo Feng even 'abducted' Ling Yue back as a guest and those of the Mo Clan were naturally happy to see that.
The next day, Qin Wentian and Mo Qingcheng were both helping Little Xin`er, Mo Feng, Mo Yu and Ling Yue to change their constitution. Because of her age, Little Xin`er was the most adaptable. With both Qin Wentian and Mo Qingcheng present, they estimated that this little doll would be able to start condensing constellations from the 3rd Heavenly Layer at the age of ten.
Another day passed... Qin Chuan brought people of the Qin Residence and headed towards the Mo Residence in the Royal Capital. They prepared an extremely luxurious bridal gift with the effort of their entire clan. Although this gift couldn't be compared to the wealth of Qin Wentian and Mo Qingcheng, it represented the well intentions of Qin Chuan and the entire Qin Clan. They tried their best to make this wedding as perfect as possible.
The Mo Clan naturally was happy to accept and immediately began preparations for a grand banquet. The aristocratic clans of Chu all appeared one after another to congratulate them as the two clans negotiated and settled on a date for the marriage.
For this matter, the Royal Capital made an announcement to the entire country that there would be a grand banquet on the date of Qin Wentian and Mo Qingcheng's wedding to entertain the people who showed up. At the same time, the Royal Capital will also send out their full force to maintain law and order, controlling the number of people who enters the Royal Capital.
The entire Chu Country was in an uproar, a countless number of people instantly headed towards the Chu Capital when they heard of Qin Wentian's name, wanting to see how grand the wedding would be. To think that it could actually make the Emperor announce to the entire country that the banquet to entertain the guests would be held at all locations in the Royal Capital.
When the news of the wedding was announced, Qin Wentian also personally penned invitations and summoned many speed-type astral warbeasts to deliver to his closest acquaintances throughout the Royal Sacred Region. Right now, the demonic beasts Qin Wentian could summon were all peak-tier Heavenly Dipper Sovereign astral warbeasts. With vast amounts of astral energy in their bodies, it could sustain them for the distance between Chu and the Royal Sacred Region, and it wouldn't take too long for them to deliver the wedding invitations.
As they were soon to be husband and wife, it was justifiable for Qin Wentian to stay together with Mo Qingcheng. Throughout these days, with little Xin`er in their embrace, they acted like ordinary people touring the Chu Royal Capital, enjoying the delights of the mortal world.
Until one fine day, in the air space above the Chu's Royal Palace, a row of figures descended in an overwhelming manner. Nine powerful Heavenly Dipper demonic beasts pulled along a dragon carriage and the silhouette within the carriage exuded an incomparably tyrannical aura. He had a crown on his head and was none other than the Emperor of the Greencloud Imperial Empire. The instant these people arrived, a thunderous commotion shook the entire Royal Palace. The auras exuding from the experts from the Greencloud Pavilion were extremely terrifying as one among them shouted out, "Subject Chu Wuwei, why are you still tarrying, come forth to welcome his Majesty?"
This voice rumbled and the sound waves spread over an area of ten miles, causing many to incline their head staring in the direction of the Royal Palace. The Emperor of Greencloud Imperial Empire truly did arrived within seven days!
