Chapter 669: Judgement Day
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Before the Pill Emperor Hall, a young man in white stood with his hands clasped behind his back, staring at that towering structure.
Those who passed by all stared at him as a faint smile appeared on their faces. Was this yet another junior of the younger generation that worshiped the Pill Emperor Hall wanting to join them?
And at this moment, at the entrance of the Pill Emperor Hall, some figures appeared and one of them pointed his finger at Qin Wentian, "No one is allowed to linger at this place, please leave as soon as possible."
Qin Wentian calmly stared at them. After which, he continued on his path, ascending up the stairs step by step.
Pill Emperor Hall, he was here.
"IMPUDENT!" The disciples of the Pill Emperor Hall all radiated a cold intent, dashing towards Qin Wentian as power at the peak of Yuanfu erupted forth.
Qin Wentian's foot heavily landed on the ground as those who rushed him were all slammed onto the stairs by an unknown force as they coughed out a few mouthfuls of blood.
"There's someone barging into the Pill Emperor Hall!" A voice roared in anger. An enraged expression appeared on the faces of these people. Barging into the Pill Emperor Hall was a crime punishable by death!
The spectators all watched as hints of interest glinted in their eyes. There was actually someone who dared to barge into the Pill Emperor Hall. Didn't he want his life?
Only Shu Ruanyu had great waves in her heart as she watched Qin Wentian ascend the stairs step by step. Indeed, just like in the past, he was planning to barge into the Pill Emperor Hall alone.
In the Pill Emperor Hall above, a silhouette soared through the air. Even before he arrived, a thunderous voice already echoed out, "WHO DARES TO BE SO IMPUDENT? KILL WITH NO MERCY!"
The voice of this person who spoke was filled with killing intent. An instant later, the expert arrived but at the instant he saw Qin Wentian, his entire body stiffened as his countenance paled.
He began to tremble involuntarily as though he was witnessing an inconceivable scene.
He has returned, Qin Wentian is back.
Once, before Qin Wentian departed, he left behind a single statement. The day when he returns shall be the day of judgement for the Pill Emperor Hall.
And was today, the day of judgement?
Their scouts were obviously keeping a close watch on the Azure Emperor Palace. Fairy Qingmei and the other experts were still in the Azure Emperor Palace yet Qin Wentian actually appeared here at this moment? Did he intend to destroy the Pill Emperor Hall with his strength alone?
The few experts beside him had also saw Qin Wentian before. And the instant their eyes landed on him, they were so frightened that they were shaking with fear. This young man had left too deep an impression on them. Once, they witnessed from afar that Qin Wentian used the demon sword and slashed apart the grandest great hall of their Pill Emperor Hall.
And now, he is back. Not only that, he was also many times stronger compared to back then. Now, he didn't even need to borrow the power of the demon sword to kill the ascendant of the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan, Ouyang Mutian. He used the most domineering manner to crush Ouyang Mutian so completely and his cultivation base was only at the peak of Heavenly Dipper.
He led his forces and slew three ascendants of the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan, showing no mercy. He then led his forces to the Azure Emperor Palace where the then palace lord personally went to welcome him, submitting voluntarily to him.
"Could it be..." The crowd suddenly thought of a possibility as their hearts thumped even harder.
Such a young-looking silhouette that could strike fear in the heart of an expert from the Pill Emperor Hall...In the entire Grand Xia, there was only one person.
"Qin Wentian!" The crowd suddenly recalled a name, as their eyes gleamed with sharpness. Was that white-robed figure Qin Wentian? He has finally returned, barging up the Pill Emperor Hall alone.
Qin Wentian didn't notice the reactions of the crowd. He continued his way up, one step at a time. Everywhere he passed by, a storm of sword qi was manifested.
A step landed, sword intent was birthed. Momentarily, the expert in the sky above Qin Wentian felt the pain of ten thousand swords piercing his heart as his countenance turned as pale as paper.
Yet another step landed, the faces of the experts in the air were completely devoid of blood as their hearts pounded with terror. Despair flashed in their eyes and after that, their bodies fell from the air, slamming onto the stairs before rolling down. They were already dead.
The people below gradually increased, as their hearts started palpitating. This young man who has returned was truly more terrifying than before. So terrifying that everyone could feel their guts wrenching.
He continued upwards, but this time around, none dared to block his path. However, the experts in the air from the Pill Emperor Hall increased as the combined might of their auras pressed down.
Astral souls, astral novas, everything was unleashed, transforming into a maelstrom of destruction that spiralled towards Qin Wentian.
A voice shouted as the maelstrom gushed forth. Terrifying black-colored currents of destructive energy streams manifested, ravaging everything in this space.
"How fearsome." The hearts of the crowd shivered. The Pill Emperor Hall sent out the vast majority of their experts, wanting to exterminate Qin Wentian.
However at this moment, they only saw the white-robed figure inclining his head. Qin Wentian then stretched his palms out and at the center of his palms, a resplendent light flowed there with enough power to bypass the destructive maelstrom, and enough power to seize stars and pluck down the moon.
In the air where the experts of the Pill Emperor Hall gathered, a gigantic terrifying palm imprint shining with resplendent light appeared and slammed down towards all of the experts there.
A thunderous rumbling sound rocked this space, it was unknown how many of the experts standing there still survived.
"His strength has actually grown so much."
Although right now, the entire Grand Xia was filled with the rumors of Qin Wentian, when these people personally witnessed his might, hints of disbelief filled their hearts. After all, Qin Wentian was only twenty eight, the strength he had at this age was simply too heaven-defying.
After clearing the trash, Qin Wentian soared up into the air. He was as serene as ever, and didn't say a single word from the start till now. Yet, both his eyes seemed to contain a strange magical power in them and for people who could see his eyes, they all felt their minds rumbling from the power.
The survivors started retreating. As Qin Wentian soared higher into the air, the further they retreated.
At this instant, that young man was like a demon god. Nobody dared to confront him.
Qin Wentian soared up to the platform at the top of the stairs and stepped into the Pill Emperor Hall as he stared at the countless faces in front of him
Among the experts present, Luo He was actually present as well.
The Luo He now stared at Qin Wentian as her heart went numb. Back then when Qin Wentian slaughtered his way into the Pill Emperor Hall, wielding the demon sword as he killed whoever blocked his path, Luo He already knew that she had committed an irreparable mistake. Once, when she faced Qin Wentian, she had the attitude of a senior facing a junior and had never even once looked directly at him even after he became the top ranker of the Heavenly Fate Rankings.
However a few years later, when she heard Qin Wentian's name again she realized to her shock that she, Luo He, already needed to look up to that young man of the junior generation.
And just like this instant, the white-robed figure casually stood there alone. But everyone in the Pill Emperor Hall was trembling from the terror they felt.
What a fearsome influence was that? Only Qin Wentian alone would be able to accomplish this, able to cause such fear in the hearts of experts from the Pill Emperor Hall, there would never be another.
"Luo He." Just as Luo He was sighing in regret, that white-robed figure turned to her and coldly spoke. "You actually still have the face to live on?"
"Everything I did was for the sake of the Pill Emperor Hall." Luo He drew in a deep breath as she stated. Back then, she had given a chance to Mo Qingcheng. But now in hindsight, that choice she had give to Mo Qingcheng in the past was truly ridiculous.
"Qingcheng is already a fifth-ranked alchemist." Qin Wentian faintly remarked. His words were like a thunderbolt from the blue going off in the mind of Luo He, filling her heart with so much impact that even her breathing was no longer regular.
Her countenance paled, her disciple of yesteryear, the disciple whom she sacrificed to feed the evil skeleton has actually became a fifth-ranked alchemist now, a rank which only the Pill Emperor himself reached. Wasn't this an irony?
She didn't doubt Qin Wentian's words. With Qin Wentian's current status and strength, there simply wasn't any need for him to deceive her.
"It's I who has let Qingcheng down, she is really an excellent disciple. Other than the matters regarding you, she has never disobeyed me before." Luo He sighed.
"Qingcheng has never mentioned you or the Pill Emperor Hall to me before." Qin Wentian calmly continued, "Just based on the things you did to her in the past, you already deserved death. But when in Chu, if it wasn't for you, Qingcheng might have already died. Maybe this was the reason why she didn't know how to face this, you have saved her life before after all. If not for this, with Qingcheng's current status in the Royal Sacred Region, it's already more than sufficient to destroy ten Pill Emperor Halls."
"So, I won't kill you. Just destroy your own cultivation and be a mortal." Qin Wentian stared at Luo He. Right now, Luo He felt an indescribable feeling in her heart. Just with Qingcheng's status alone could destroy ten Pill Emperor Halls?
"Aren't you too confident?" A voice rang out. In the air, constellations manifested. The Pill Emperor and the ancient elder of the Pill Emperor Hall appeared.
Qin Wentian didn't look at them, he still kept his gaze trained on Luo He. "This is already the best opportunity I can give you if you wish to repent. Don't make me act myself."
Luo He remained silent. At the corner of her eyes, there was actually a drop of tear streaking down. Nobody could understand Luo He's current feelings. It was her who personally destroyed the most outstanding disciple the Pill Emperor Hall ever had. In the past, she originally had the chance to allow Mo Qingcheng to marry Qin Wentian. If she really had chosen that choice back then, she didn't even dare to imagine how radiant the Pill Emperor Hall would be today.
But sadly, everything was destroyed by her.
Her pride and her conceit had destroyed all of this.
She was the sinner of the Pill Emperor Hall. She committed atrocities, letting down her disciple, that young women whose beauty could stun Grand Xia.
"Fine." Luo He's countenance dimmed before she abruptly laughed.
"Luo He!" Upon hearing Luo He's answer, the Pill Emperor shouted. Yet he only saw Luo He smiling at him, "I, Luo He...truly has no face to continue living on."
After speaking, a terrifying destructive energy swirled in her palms, manifesting an incomparably scorching flame. After that, she violently slammed her palm into her body as that destructive flames began combusting. Luo He spat out a mouthful of blood but she was still smiling, staring at Qin Wentian. "I might have made a mistake but still, I had once truly treated Qingcheng as my own disciple, sparing no expense to nurture her, assuming a master's responsibility."
"To me, becoming a cripple is something even more terrifying than death." Luo He was still smiling before she collapsed. She could only use her life to atone for her mistake.
"Luo He!" The countenance of the Pill Emperor paled. His rage towered up into the heavens as he rushed Qin Wentian.
However at this moment, Qin Wentian finally moved. He resembled a stream of light that dashed forward in a certain direction as streams of sword qi ravaged this space. Showers of sword-light rained down only to see his palms slamming out, causing reverberations in the air as everything before him was completely destroyed.
"WHERE DO YOU THINK YOU ARE GOING?!" An incomparably gigantic fiery palm imprint shot down from the sky, grabbing towards Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian lifted his palms and struck out in defense. The resplendent light enveloping his palms was terrifying to the extreme. A rumbling sound echoed out as the palm imprint was destroyed. Qin Wentian continued flying forth, resembling a great roc and a short instant later, he appeared before the embedded demon sword.
"I've returned." Qin Wentian stared at the demon sword, stretching out his fingers and slicing them lightly on the edge of the sword, allowing his blood to drip onto it. In an instant, the demon sword began to shine with a brilliant light.
"You hate that the heavens are too low? In that case, I shall bring you with me as I break through the heavens and battle against immortals and demons of the nine heavens!" Qin Wentian roared. He then inclined his head and gripped the sword tightly, soaring up into the skies. His blood flowed to every part of the demon sword and only stopped after he reached a height of a thousand meters above ground!
