Chapter 675: Bloodline Protection
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Qin Wentian naturally discovered this as well. The instant the constellation manifested, he had already sensed that terrifying aura. Right now, when his eyes turned to the Greencloud Sovereign, a fearsome killing intent could be seen within.
Evidently, the Greencloud Sovereign was in cahoots with an extremely powerful expert. That expert possessed the ability to hide his strength and aura and this wasn't any ordinary hiding abilities. Given how powerful Qin Wentian's perception was, he actually overlooked him? How terrifying was that ordinary-looking old man exactly?
Qin Wentian stared at the cold smile on the Greencloud Sovereign's face. His eyes reflected a deep mocking laughter, staring at Qin Wentian as he would a clown.
Killing the people of his Greencloud Pavilion? Not placing him, the Greencloud Sovereign in his eyes?
Very well, he shall die then! Although his fame resound throughout Grand Xia and had the ability to kill Celestial Phenomenon Ascendants, he would die without a doubt today.
"Brother-in-law!" Ling Yue screamed in shock as her countenance instantly paled. There was actually such a powerful ambush waiting for Qin Wentian here. She didn't know anything at all, but the reason why Qin Wentian would appear here was clearly because of her and her family. This instantly caused Ling Yue to feel an unbearable feeling in her heart, an emotion akin to guilt. To her, it felt like she was the one who betrayed Qin Wentian.
In fact, Ling Yue thought too much. Since the Greencloud Sovereign arrived in Chu, Qin Wentian would have to meet him no matter what. This point was something the Greencloud Sovereign knew as well. Because, in Chu, the only one who had strength to stand up to the Greencloud Sovereign was Qin Wentian alone. If the Greencloud Sovereign slaughtered his kin, would Qin Wentian not appear? The reason why the Greencloud Sovereign chose such a method was simply because he didn't want to arouse any suspicion and secondly, he didn't want Qin Wentian to act rashly before he entered into the trap set for him.
"Don't worry, it's not your fault." Qin Wentian spoke. At this moment, the entire inn was shaking from the pressure of the ancient vines as they wrapped around it. A moment later, countless vine-like tentacles pierced through the inn as fresh blood splattered everywhere in huge amounts.
In the lower levels of the inn, screams and cries of misery rang out unceasingly. Those tentacles that penetrated the inn showed no mercy and reaped away the lives of the crowd. After which, they extended with blinding speed towards Qin Wentian, resembling a huge maw wanting to devour him. This was a gigantic web formed by the writhing tentacles, all paths of escape were already sealed.
Qin Wentian instantly turned ashen, he could clearly sense the lives of the innocent populace getting reaped away. The piercingly sharp vines directly penetrated their bodies as corpses littered the inn, constituting a shocking scene. That old man was actually such a psychotic individual, killing people like they were ants. In his eyes, the lives of these commoners were petty and cheap.
The scarlet demon halberd appeared in Qin Wentian's hands as he struck out with it in an eruption of his force. The Illusory Demonforce he had comprehended merged into his attack, gushing towards that devouring maw-like ancient vines. With a thunderous boom, the vines were shattered into pieces but the Greencloud Sovereign and the old man had already disappeared from sight. In the entire inn, Qin Wentian was the only survivor. He was trapped within the constellation.
"Who are you?" Qin Wentian icily inquired. There shouldn't be someone like this person in the transcendent powers of Grand Xia.
Above in the sky, the star light spiralled. Underneath that vine-type constellation, yet another constellation appeared.
"Dual Constellations Manifestation?!" The cold light in Qin Wentian's eyes got even more pronounced. He stared at the constellations only to see the silhouette of the old man flying towards them before fading away as countless apparitions appeared around that location.
The two constellations gradually merged with each other, from two into one. Qin Wentian felt an intense premonition of danger. The opponent in front of him far surpassed the strength of Ouyang Mutian as well as the ascendants of the Pill Emperor Hall.
Qin Wentian's perception stretched to the limits, yet he still had no way to perceive the true location of that old man. This opponent had condensed a total of two constellations and their abilities were apparent, granting him the power of absolute concealment. This was why he had no way to sense the presence of this old man.
Those writing vine-like tentacles finally moved again, launching an attack at the very same instant. The speed which they moved at created a fearsome whistling noise in the air as they lashed out together. There were so many that Qin Wentian didn't know which of those should he defend against.
Qin Wentian soared through the air as demonic qi exuded from him, causing his physique to grow larger, transforming into something that resembled a fiendgod. Resplendent particles of energy from the Illusory Demonforce coated and circulate around his body, acting like a terrifying armor.
"Incarnation Burst!" Qin Wentian roared. Several illusory images of him appeared as the halberds in their hands struck out in a frenzy, attacking all together. That vine-like maw completely exploded. A moment later, the vine-type constellation endlessly birthed new vines again as they gathered and slaughter over to Qin Wentian once more. Qin Wentian's earlier attack only bought him an instant of time.
Qin Wentian's Yuanfu started thrumming as the astral energy within surged. Instantly, a towering sword qi gushed forth from him in all eight directions, colliding into those sharp tentacles once more. But even so, he couldn't block his opponent completely. After all, his opponent was an ascendant far above Ouyang Mutian's level. If his attacks managed to hit him, Qin Wentian knew that he would most certainly be crushed.
"I have to get out of here." Qin Wentian gazed in a certain direction, soaring up as his sword intent generated boundless sword might. With an intention of his will, the demon sword appeared, slicing his left palms as his blood dyed the body of the demon sword red. A demonic blood-colored light shone resplendently as the humming of the demon sword filled the air, completely decimating everything.
"KILL!" Qin Wentian howled, his left palm held on to the demon sword while his right held onto the scarlet demon halberd. An intense murderous aura radiated from him as his entire being was enveloped by his sword qi. Only this way could enable him to have a chance to break out of that web of vines.
Up above, the ancient vines seemed endless, constantly unleashing fearsome attacks. If it wasn't for the sword might of his demon sword destroying all obstructions, it would be extremely tough even if he wanted to move a step.
Too powerful, this ascendant was so strong that he could insta-kill the Pill Emperor
"Bzz!" Abruptly, Qin Wentian suddenly saw a pair of eyes appearing in the skies. These eerie eyes caused him to feel cold all over. Slashing out with the demon sword in anger, the terrifying sword light slashed apart the web of vines, creating a opening. Yet at this moment, that pair of eyes suddenly vanished once more.
From the right, the terrifying ancient vines coiled together and lashed out towards Qin Wentian. Qin Wentian brandished the scarlet demon halberd and struck out with an indomitable might, destroying the vines. However, at the next opening, he saw those icy-looking eyes once again, the look within them so cold that it could freeze his soul.
Abruptly, a silhouette wielding a long spear with fearsome black-colored energy revolving around it stabbed out. This silhouette appeared suddenly, moving with inconceivable speed. It felt as though his opponent could instantly vanish and reappear at any point in this space enveloped by his constellation. Also, this attack was timed impeccably at the moment where Qin Wentian struck out with his halberd. Qin Wentian had no time to defend.
At this instant, Qin Wentian only felt his sea of consciousness turning sluggish from the effect of that pair of eyes. Even his blood-circulation rate slowed as the feeling of being frozen spread around his entire body. His movements lagged, that terrifying spear knock his halberd aside before piercing immediately towards his brain. Qin Wentian couldn't even move his head, his entire body felt frozen. In addition, the power of darkness that was circulating around the spear was simply too terrifying.
Everything happened in the time it takes for a spark to fly off a flint, so fast that Qin Wentian didn't even have the time to think. Such a powerful assassin was simply too terrifying.
In this instant, the only thing remaining in Qin Wentian's heart, was despair.
However at this moment, a flood of terrifying crimson light burst out from Qin Wentian's body. That was the thrumming of his blood. A terrifying demon phantom manifested, resembling a human-formed demonic beast. It forcibly separated itself from Qin Wentian's body as it raised its palms and blasting them outwards.
The long spear that has the terrifying black-colored energy currents of darkness circulating around it pierced right through the palms of the demon phantom, all the way into its body. However, the palm of the phantom continued on its trajectory, not affected by any resistance at all. Those blood-colored palms then executed the Star-Seizing Palm technique with enough power to seize the constellations. As they landed on the grey-robed old man's body, forcibly flinging him through the air as the impact caused him to cough out a mouthful of blood. Evidently, the old man hadn't expected that Qin Wentian would still be able to counter-attack under those circumstances.
"What is that?" The old man stared at the demon phantom that appeared. This demon phantom was in the form of Qin Wentian, only a much more violent and feral version of himself. The cold eyes of the phantom had no emotions, and it seemed invulnerable to damage. The attack earlier pierced right through it yet it failed to destroy it.
"Bloodline Protection!" The eyes of that grey-robed elder flashed sharply as he felt shock rumbling his heart. The bloodline of this brat was actually so terrifying, it even had the ability of Bloodline Protection?
"Bloodline Protection?" Qin Wentian felt somewhat astonished, this was the first time he had heard of this term. That demon phantom that appeared earlier was indeed born from the power of his bloodline. Earlier when he had comprehended the true intent of Demons, he could feel his blood growing more powerful as though more fetters were unlocked. This was the second ability that his bloodline had manifested. The first ability of his bloodline was able to boost his aura, allowing his cultivation to scale up to the next level. Sadly, it was blocked by the barrier of Celestial Phenomenon now.
The grey-robed elder was exceptionally shocked. Bloodline Protection was a secret bloodline technique. For people who could manifest this ability, it's an indication that their bloodline was extremely powerful. In that case, Qin Wentian's ancestor must certainly be an exceedingly strong powerhouse with a tyrannical bloodline.
Such a character like Qin Wentian is extremely rare even in the perspective of the entire Royal Sacred Region. At the very least, as of now, Qin Wentian was the only one who could manifest that particular ability. Anyway, if it wasn't for the grey-robed old man living so long and had read countless ancient books before, he too wouldn't have understood what was going on earlier.
"Who the hell is this brat? I must kill him for sure." The grey-robed elder felt an icy coldness in his heart. The killing intent in his pitch-black eyes grew even more intense!
"You must be someone hired by the transcendent powers to kill me right?" Qin Wentian's voice was like frost. This man was the most dangerous opponent he had ever faced in his life!
