Chapter 663: Reason for Return
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: - -
Qin Wentian's gaze swept over the experts of the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan, his deep dark eyes containing threads of sword qi, as though just he could pierce through all their eyes just by matching gazes with them. Wherever his gaze shifted to, those of the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan actually didn't dare to match their gaze with him.
One of the thirty-six Starlords was actually killed. A character at the peak of Heavenly Dipper in Grand Xia was nothing but a joke in front of this genius.
Not only that, Qin Wentian now, wasn't even thirty years of age.
"Qin Wentian, are you here to congratulate us or here to make trouble?" A host of the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan stared at Qin Wentian as he coldly spoke. Today was the day of marriage between the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan and Jiang Clan. Never in their wildest dreams would they have expected that Qin Wentian would return and show up here.
"You have not answered my question." The coldness in Qin Wentian's eyes deepened to another level, flashing with a demonic gleam. This actually caused the host to break out in cold sweat, it was as though he could feel a sword intent piercing through his heart.
"This is a matter of my Ouyang Aristocrat Clan, when has it become your turn to interfere in this?" That person coldly replied after a moment of silence. Although Qin Wentian was very powerful, his cultivation base was after all only at the peak of Heavenly Dipper. Right now, they were still strong enough to suppress him, how could they allow him to be so impudent?
When Qin Wentian heard these words, the coldness from him grew even more pronounced. He took a step out accompanied by a booming noise that directly shook the hearts of the crowd. The expression of the host turned cold as well as he stared at Qin Wentian.
"They are the matters of my brother, yet you tell me it's not my place to interfere?" Qin Wentian spat out. Stretching his palms, a gigantic palm imprint that seemed capable of seizing the stars and plucking the moon shone resplendently, radiating a fearsome might as it blasted out. The aura of that host from the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan instantly erupted out explosively as lightning crackled around him. However, the might generated by the palm imprint was simply too crushing, and it suppressed everything with a thunderous boom. it shattered the attack of his opponent and lifted him up into the air.
"Go find someone who has enough authority to speak to me." With a wave of his hand, that person was tossed through the air, slamming down ruthlessly on the ground as he coughed out blood. Such a scene caused everyone present to feel a chill in their hearts. Qin Wentian had only gone missing for just a few years. Yet now that he returned, he was more arrogant than ever and his strength was many times stronger compared to before.
"IMPUDENT!" In the air, bolts of electricity flashed through the air. After which, an expert slowly walked over through the air. This person was clad in a violet robe and exuded an imposing aura akin to dragons and tigers. Every step he took caused an overwhelming might to permeate the air. A screen of lightning then covered the sky, flickering and flashing unceasingly.
"It's Ouyang Mutian, one of the three Celestial Phenomenon Ascendants of the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan." The hearts of the crowd trembled slightly when they saw this person approaching. In Grand Xia, Celestial Phenomenon Ascendants stood at the peak and were seen extremely rarely. If it wasn't for Qin Wentian being so arrogant today, Ouyang Mutian wouldn't have appeared. He would have chosen to watch the scene play out from the shadows instead.
Ouyang Mutian's entire body was bathing amidst a storm of lightning and thunder. He stood in the sky, staring down at Qin Wentian disdainfully as he icily commented, "Qin Wentian, I won't hold you accountable for the matters today. You can leave now."
Qin Wentian inclined his head staring at his opponent as his lips curled up in a mocking smile, "Hand over Ouyang Kuangsheng."
Four words, even when facing off against an ascendant, he was still as domineering as ever.
As Qin Wentian's voice faded, a wave of destructive energy gushed over. The crowd turned their heads only to see an old man on the red carpet pathway, walking over. Each and every step he took filled the hearts of the crowd with an incredible pressure.
"Yet another Celestial Phenomenon Ascendant?" Expressions of shock filled the faces of the crowd. The person who came was none other than Old Xing. He stood at a location not far behind Qin Wentian as his eyes bored into Ouyang Mutian who was standing in the air.
"Do you think that you alone is sufficient?" Ouyang Mutian glanced at Old Xing, his voice as cold as frost.
A light laughter rang out in the air. Outside the castle, another figure soared through the air. This figure was alluringly beautiful and exuded so much charm that it could even cause one to be lost in that mesmerizing eyes of hers. Fairy Qingmei has also arrived!
"Is this sufficient now?" Qin Wentian coldly inquired. The countenance of Ouyang Mutian flickered incessantly, staring at Qin Wentian. Although this young man was a junior, he dared not underestimate him. Other than having grand achievements like splitting apart the Pill Emperor Hall and the destruction of the Great Solar Chen Clan, Ouyang Mutian also knew that the annihilation of the Nine Mystical Palace was done by the forces under Qin Wentian's control.
"Qin Wentian, I can hand Ouyang Kuangsheng to you. But you cannot make any more trouble for our Ouyang Aristocrat Clan after that. This is the day of a grand wedding." Ouyang Mutian stared at Qin Wentian, his words causing great waves to rise in the hearts of people. Ouyang Mutian had actually chosen to compromise.
"I've said it before. The purpose of me coming here today was to congratulate the Ouyang Clan." Qin Wentian smiled.
"Fine, let's hope you can keep your words. If not don't blame my Ouyang Aristocrat Clan for not showing you respect." Ouyang Mutian spoke as he turned and departed.
Right now, Ouyang Kuangsheng was no longer as important to the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan. It's fine that they hand him over to Qin Wentian, they only hoped that no more incidents would happen on this day of the grand wedding. This was already Ouyang Mutian taking a step back. He took a step back because of Qin Wentian.
Many people had expressions of fascination on their faces. Right now in Grand Xia, there weren't many that could make the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan compromise. Yet, the young man in front of them was one such character that could do so.
An instant later, Ouyang Mutian returned. Right now, Ouyang Kuangsheng's robes were torn and tattered and his hair was completely disheveled. He looked extremely haggard and the aura emanating from him constantly fluctuated. How could Ouyang Kuangsheng have allowed himself to be freely imprisoned by his clan? He would naturally have resisted and the result of the resistance was obvious without words...
Qin Wentian's eyes gleamed with coldness. Ouyang Mutian released Ouyang Kuangsheng as he icily spoke, "I will hand him over to you."
Ouyang Kuangsheng slowly ambled his way towards Qin Wentian and the others. The carefree air with an intense sense of pride which he once exuded was completely gone. He stared at Qin Wentian and spoke, "Jiang Ting was coerced by them. If I leave with you all just like this, I wouldn't be able to face my consciousness for all eternity."
"Sit." Qin Wentian patted his shoulder and didn't say anything more. When the crowd saw Qin Wentian moving forward, they all retreated, opening a path for him. Instantly, the seats that were filled before emptied as Qin Wentian and his companions sat down.
Seeing such a scene caused the coldness in Ouyang Mutian's eyes to grow even more pronounced. He flicked his sleeves and too, sat down on the highest level. Today if Qin Wentian still refused to stop his nonsense, then he truly wanted to see how capable Qin Wentian was to be this brazen in their territory."
The number of visitors increased, yet the atmosphere was strangely silent. Several gazes were all riveted onto Qin Wentian and his companions.
Today, Qin Wentian brought along Old Xing and Fairy Qingmei, a total of two ascendants. Were they simply here to rescue Ouyang Kuangsheng?
From afar, in the depths of Ouyang Aristocrat Clan's castle, a bell rang out. After which several figures appeared near the bell in response to the summons. The two in the middle were dressed in wedding attire and was none other than Ouyang Zicheng and Jiang Ting. On both sides of them, there were people from the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan and Jiang Clan, escorting them as they arrived at the stage.
Jiang Ting evidently noticed Ouyang Kuangsheng and Qin Wentian. Her eyes instantly turned red as they sparkled with tears. Qin Wentian has rescued Ouyang Kuangsheng...and as long as he is safe, she didn't mind what would happen to her next. With the power of the two transcendent powers, this marriage was as good as settled. Qin Wentian alone simply didn't have sufficient power to stop it. She could only choose to compromise.
However right at this instant, Jiang Ting actually saw Qin Wentian flashing a radiant smile at her. Not only that, it was a smile filled with confidence.
After which, the crowd only saw Qin Wentian standing up as he pulled Ouyang Kuangsheng along with him. Fan Le and the others stood up as well, walking behind Ouyang Kuangsheng. An extremely luxurious-looking groom attire appeared and Qin Wentian and Fan Le spoke to the dumbfounded Ouyang Kuangsheng, "Go on, change into it."
Even before Ouyang Kuangsheng came to his senses, Fan Le and Qin Wentian each took one of his arms and helped him into the suit.
Such a scene caused the experts of the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan to all turn ashen. It seems that in the end, Qin Wentian's purpose here was to cause trouble.
"Don't think I truly don't dare to kill you." Ouyang Mutian stood up, as purple-colored streaks of lightning flashed in the skies. However, Qin Wentian didn't even glance at him. He directly pulled Ouyang Kuangsheng onto the stage while Fairy Qingmei and Old Xing walked on the left and right side of him. Nobody dared to obstruct their passage.
Right now, the experts from the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan and Jiang Clan all stood up as terrifying auras blasted out from them, gushing towards Qin Wentian. They all stepped up onto the stage as well, standing behind Ouyang Zicheng and Jiang Ting. Qin Wentian didn't seemed to be bothered by their actions and directly pulled Ouyang Kuangsheng forward until he came face to face with Jiang Ting.
"Today is the grand wedding of my brother Ouyang Kuangsheng and his fiancee Jiang Ting. Naturally the purpose of my visit is to congratulate them." Qin Wentian slowly spoke, his actions causing astonishment and shock to everyone present.
The grand wedding of Ouyang Kuangsheng and Jiang Ting?
Today, was the wedding date for Ouyang Zicheng and Jiang Ting. Was Qin Wentian planning to just forcibly change the groom?
Above the Ouyang Castle, a fearsome aura towered up into the heavens. After which, a group of figures flew over. The person in the lead was none other than the old ancestor of the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan which Qin Wentian was familiar with. Right now, the gaze of the Ouyang Ancestor was as cold as a block of ten-thousand year ice.
At the same instant, numerous powerful auras also erupted forth, gushing over. Those experts that hid themselves in the shadows earlier all appeared. All of them were terrifying experts at the Heavenly Dipper Realm.
"Qin Wentian hereby thanks everyone for showing up for my brother's grand wedding. However, there's still something we must settle first before the wedding can proceed. Hence, I humbly beseech the crowd to retreat some more first." Qin Wentian clasped his hands behind his back as he spoke. A moment later, the guests at the banquet all retreated a certain distance away as great waves rocked their hearts. So many experts, were these the forces under Qin Wentian's control?
"Mystic Moon Hall, these are actually experts from the Mystic Moon Hall and of the Azure Factions that were under the Azure Emperor in the past. To think that they had all already chosen to submit to Qin Wentian."
"The Ouyang Aristocrat Clan and the Jiang Clan also have many experts, a total of five Ascendants from their side actually appeared at the same time."
"There are quite alot of Ascendants on Qin Wentian's side as well. Fairy Qingmei, Old Xing, the sect leader and the black-robed matriarch of the Mystic Moon Hall. A total of four Celestial Phenomenon Ascendants and their overall power didn't lose out to their opponents by much. This is an obvious case of kidnapping the bride, simply too brazen."
The hearts of everyone present shook, and even those spectating from outside were badly shocked. Today was supposed to be a grand occasion, a marriage alliance between two transcendent powers, the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan and the Jiang Clan. Who would have imagined that there would be a case of bride kidnapping?
"Truly crazy. This is what brothers are for. Bringing experts to storm the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan for the sake of their relationship!" Countless people exclaimed in wonder. The experts of both sides faced off against each other, fully prepared for confrontation. Any spark now would ignite the situation.
Ouyang Kuangsheng clenched his fist tightly as warm currents flowed in his heart. He only saw Qin Wentian patting him on his shoulder, as though telling him not to worry too much. Didn't Ouyang Kuangsheng lead his men to Chu to help him in the past? Between brothers, there was no need to say too much.
"Ouyang. Today, do you dare to marry Jiang Ting?" Qin Wentian turned to Ouyang Kuangsheng as he asked.
"Why would I not dare?" Ouyang Kuangsheng let out a heartfelt laughter, his gaze fixed onto that beautiful silhouette standing beside Ouyang Zicheng.
"Jiang Ting, are you willing to marry Ouyang Kuangsheng? As long as you are willing, today shall be the date of your grand wedding." Qin Wentian inquired as he faced Jiang Ting.
"Mhm." Jiang Ting's eyes overflowed with tears as she repeatedly nodded her head. Right now, she didn't care about anything else. With her answer, Ouyang Zicheng's countenance turned ashen; but nobody could be bothered with him right now.
"QIN WENTIAN!" The frosty voice of the Ouyang Ancestor boomed out. Too arrogant, Qin Wentian was simply too arrogant. He had lived for so many years and had never met someone as brazen as him before. If it wasn't for the state of his heart being so resolute, he would have already vomited blood from his anger.
What did Qin Wentian take this place as? He actually dared to do such a thing in front of all the guests of Grand Xia!
