Chapter 674: Greencloud Sovereign
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
In the ancient kingdom of Grand Xia, there were several ruins and debris stacked up. The craftsmen followed the instructions of Yun Mengyi and went about constructing the ancient kingdom, working so hard that they went without sleep. Eventually, the ancient kingdom of Grand Xia once again regained the majesty it had thousands of years ago. However, there was one thing that's different in comparison; this place was now filled with the vitality of people, as though it was a sign of the rise of the new Grand Xia.
Grand Xia, was about to enter a new era.
The other transcendent powers of Grand Xia didn't come to make trouble. During the relocation of the Azure Emperor Palace, the other transcendent powers were strangely silent. This silence was like the silence before the storm, making people feel that they were biding their time for an all out eruption in the future. Would the situation create the rise of a new legend or repeat the history of the then Azure Emperor? Nobody had the answers.
Through these days, outside the ancient kingdom, there would occasionally be a silhouette in grey robes that resembled an ordinary old man. He would stay for a few days studying the imposing ancient kingdom before he disappeared. But Qin Wentian did not know of the existence of this man despite him leaving the astral warbeasts he summoned to act as his eyes here in the ancient kingdom and in Chu.
Recently, the situation in Chu was anything but calm. The main reason was naturally because of Qin Wentian's return as well as the date of his grand wedding getting increasingly closer. More and more people started surging to Chu's Royal Capital, preparing to attend the wedding of Qin Wentian and Mo Qingcheng. The Emperor of Chu, Chu Wuwei, had long issued the orders to get the entire Royal Capital to prepare for their banquet. After all, who didn't want to see the young man who killed the Imperial Emperor of the Greencloud Imperial Empire in a single strike?
During this period of time, Mo Feng and Mo Yu were both extremely highly regarded, there would be floods of their good friends coming to find them everyday, asking about the stories of Qin Wentian. That event in the inn that day circulated wildly around and that single sentence of Qin Wentian summoning the Imperial Emperor to see him in seven days made him the idol of countless youngsters.
That lass Mo Yu wasn't shy at all, constantly boasting and exaggerating the details. And as for Mo Feng, he was less willing to join in, he would rather bring Ling Yue around, roaming the streets of Chu.
Today, Mo Feng and Ling Yue walked together hand in hand in the Royal Capital of Chu. The two of them had officially started dating and stuck together like glue everyday.
"Mo Feng, in the future when you marry me, would you hold a wedding for me as grand as the one brother-in-law is holding for sis Qingcheng?" Ling Yue smiled lightly, teasing Mo Feng.
Mo Feng rubbed his head, before replying in a somewhat depressed manner, "Ling Yue, I will do my best to give you a wedding that would make you satisfied, but if I want to surpass brother-in-law...It will be too difficult. After all, brother-in-law is simply too awesome."
"Hehe." Ling Yue hugged Mo Feng as she gently smiled, "I was teasing you, as long as you treat me as nice as this forever, it's already sufficient for me. Brother-in-law has the accomplishments he had today because he underwent many trials and faced a lot of danger. Although I hope that you would be stronger, I don't want you to throw yourself recklessly head-on into danger as well. If you can spend more time accompanying me, I will already be very happy and satisfied." Lin Yue gave a self-deprecating laughed as she continued, "Mo Feng, do I sound very selfish? Wanting you to marry me in a glorious manner, yet I'm saying that I don't want you to get stronger."
"Nope, isn't this because you love me?" Mo Feng had a silly-looking smile on his face. Ling Yue blushed and instantly followed up, "Idiot, who is in love with you?"
After speaking, she turned and broke into a small jog and Mo Feng hurried to catch up with her.
"Miss." At this moment, a silhouette abruptly appeared, blocking Ling Yue's path. Ling Yue stared at the row of figures which appeared an instant later as she opened her mouth slightly in surprise as her eyes lost her luster.
"Has father came to Chu?" Ling Yue asked.
"Lord wants to see you." The man in the lead nodded. Ling Yue could only sigh. After which, she turned and looked at Mo Feng with a bitter smile on her face, "Mo Feng, you return first okay?"
"Ling Yue..." Mo Feng was extremely reluctant to do so.
"Don't worry, let me go chat with my father." Ling Yue smiled.
"Lord said to bring young master Mo Feng along." The man in the lead spoke again, his words causing Ling Yue and Mo Feng to start. They exchanged glances, there was a trace of nervousness in the beautiful eyes of Ling Yue but she only heard Mo Feng replying, "That's great. Ling Yue, let me go together with you to meet uncle."
Ling Yue hesitated for a moment before lightly nodding her head, "Okay..."
"Let's go little miss, the lord is in the Drunken Wine Inn." The man in the lead led the way, causing Ling Yue and Mo Feng to feel a little weird. To think that Ling Yue's father was actually at the Drunken Wine Inn, the place where the source of the commotion was from.
Right now, the Drunken Wine Inn was more lively than ever, as customers flooded the place after the event that day. However, the third level was exceptionally silent.
Mo Feng and Ling Yue both were somewhat nervous when they walked up the stairs. And when they stepped into an elegant room, Ling Yue's beautiful eyes stiffened. She naturally saw her father, but in the room her father was not alone. Her grandfather was there as well. Not only that, they were also accompanied by a figure clad in black.
The black-robed figure casually sat there, emanating an imposing might. His eyes were incredibly sharp, as though they possessed the ability to see through the hearts of people.
Ling Yue's heart clenched. She immediately bowed to the black-robed figure as she greeted, "Ling Yue pays her respect to the Sovereign."
As someone of Greencloud Pavilion, Ling Yue naturally would know who this person in black was. This man was none other than the ascendant who rose up in recent years, the Greencloud Sovereign who forced old man Greencloud away. The Greencloud Pavilion wasn't as placid as Qin Wentian, he was strict and ruthless, following the philosophy of "those with me prosper and those against me must die." Ling Yue was naturally extremely frightened of this man. Normally, she wouldn't have much of a chance to see the Greencloud Sovereign, and she never expected that he would actually come to Chu today personally.
Mo Feng trembled slightly. Sovereign? This was the Greencloud Sovereign of the Greencloud Pavilion?
"Mhm." The Greencloud Sovereign nodded. The him who had always been extremely severe revealed a smile at this moment yet his smile contained an oppressive feel to it. His gaze landed on Mo Feng as he asked, "Are you Mo Qingcheng's brother, Mo Feng?"
"Yes." Mo Feng nodded in reply. He was as nervous as Ling Yue.
"Not bad, you seem quite compatible with Ling Yue." The Greencloud Sovereign laughed, his words causing Mo Feng to silently heave a sigh of relief. He then added, "Thank you Sovereign."
"No problem, I'm here in Chu today because I wish to meet with your brother-in-law. Are you able to pass on this message to him?" The Greencloud Sovereign replied.
Mo Feng started. Earlier, Qin Wentian domineeringly slayed the Imperial Emperor of the Greencloud Imperial Empire, before telling the survivors to relay the news to the Greencloud Sovereign. After that, the Greencloud Sovereign didn't came for revenge and everything seemed to be at an end. Yet right now, the Greencloud Sovereign actually appeared here today although he didn't appear to be here for revenge from his current mannerisms.
"My brother-in-law isn't in Chu. I have no way to contact him." Mo Feng replied.
"No problem. In that case, help me to relay this news to your sister. If your brother-in-law doesn't show up within three days, I will personally pay a visit to your sister." There was still a smile on the Greencloud Sovereign's face which made Mo Feng confused about his actual intentions.
"Okay, I will let my sister know about this." Mo Feng nodded his head.
"Go on then. Ling Yue will remain behind to accompany her father." The Greencloud Sovereign casually stated. Mo Feng glanced at Ling Yue and upon seeing her nodding her head, he turned and departed from the inn.
After Mo Feng returned, he immediately told Mo Qingcheng of this matter.
Mo Qingcheng was in her courtyard and her eyes flashed with suspicion after hearing what the Greencloud Sovereign wanted to do. She glanced at a silvery roc that was summoned beside her. These astral warbeasts were able to continue existing indefinitely until the astral energy within them dried up and through it, Qin Wentian could know everything that happened. Hence, he knew of the matter regarding the Greencloud Sovereign's arrival.
This caused Qin Wentian to be bewildered. Maybe, it was because the Greencloud Sovereign knew that Mo Qingcheng would definitely have a method to contact him hence he made Mo Feng convey these words to Mo Qingcheng. However, he couldn't discern what the Greencloud Sovereign wanted.
Given the Greencloud Sovereign's status in Grand Xia, the news regarding the ancient kingdom reconstruction should already be known to him. But Qin Wentian didn't know if the Greencloud Sovereign had communicated with the Wang Ancestor and Shi Ancestor before this.
But regardless, since the Greencloud Sovereign already appeared in Chu, Qin Wentian would go and meet with him. Because other than him, there was no one here who could suppress the Greencloud Sovereign if push came to the shove.
Two days later, Qin Wentian returned to Chu.
The Mo Residence became lively at his return once more. That little lass Mo Yu started bugging her brother-in-law once again and it took quite some effort before Qin Wentian managed to placate her.
Right now in the courtyard, only Qin Wentian, Mo Qingcheng and Little Rascal remained.
"The Greencloud Sovereign has been waiting for you; I wonder what are his intentions?" Mo Qingcheng spoke.
"No matter what his intentions are, I will know as soon as I head over there." Qin Wentian smiled.
"Wentian, you have to be careful." Mo Qingcheng kept feeling something was wrong, she sensed that the Greencloud Sovereign was up to no good.
"Don't worry. No matter how powerful the Greencloud Sovereign is, he won't be able to stop me if I wish to leave." Qin Wentian spoke confidently. In addition, how strong could the Greencloud Sovereign be? At the very most, maybe the other ascendants of the various transcendent powers would be there but he was confident that he would be able to retreat safely. As long as he isn't dead, he believed that the ascendants wouldn't dare to act rashly.
Qin Wentian's silhouette flickered as he soared through the air. When he neared the inn, his powerful perception extended outwards, enveloping this entire area.
The inn was extremely lively, unending streams of people entered and exited it. However, the third level of the inn seemed to be exceptionally quiet. Qin Wentian could sense the presence of a black-robed figure and this man, seemed to be the strongest individual here. He was at the Celestial Phenomenon Realm.
Other than him, the cultivation bases of the rest could all be seen by him.
"Could it be that the Greencloud Sovereign is not here for revenge?" Qin Wentian mused. At this moment, the eyes of the Greencloud Pavilion suddenly opened, gleaming with sharpness. From the third level of the inn, his gaze pierced past space as he stared in the direction where Qin Wentian was in.
Qin Wentian knew that the other party had already sensed his presence. With a leap, his body leapt to the third level of the inn as his eyes landed on the Greencloud Sovereign and the others that were present.
"Brother-in-law." Ling Yue called out. Qin Wentian lightly nodded, after which he turned to the Greencloud Sovereign, "What's the purpose of you wanting to meet me?"
"Actually, it isn't because I wanted to meet with you." The Greencloud Sovereign smiled. And at the instant as he spoke, an old man sweeping the ground outside the inn suddenly threw down his broom as he inclined his head. He was clad in simple clothing and had no aura whatsoever, completely resembling an ordinary old man. However at this instant, his gaze turned incredibly terrifying.
Immediately, astral light cascaded downwards as a constellation covered the skies, enveloping the entire Drunken Wine Inn within. Those passersby were all stunned into shock as they saw the sudden scene, their hearts pounding in terror.
They stared at the constellation which was in the form of an ancient astral tree. Numerous incomparably huge vines wrapped around this entire space, writhing as they moved, instantly locking the entire inn within their embrace!
