Chapter 726: Actions of the Royal Sacred Sect
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
"Seems like it's really time to leave this world." A notion flashed in his mind. Although the Royal Sacred Region was extremely vast, to the current him right now, it has nothing to offer in terms of advancement and would only restrict his growth. Only by venturing out of this world would he be able to progress further.
In the past, Qin Wentian had no wish to depart so fast. Most probably, this notion appeared indirectly because of the disciple recruitment event by the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor.
At this moment, Qin Wentian's gaze turned to another direction. He heard a commotion, and sensed an intense astral energy fluctuation through his perception. At this instant, there were many people on the streets who were also rushing that way.
Qin Wentian furrowed his brows, he then pulled Mo Qingcheng's hands along as he headed towards the source of the commotion as well.
An instant later, they arrived at the source of the commotion. That place was a flourishing region where many luxurious inns were located; but right now, a majority of the buildings there have collapsed into debris with many onlookers spectating. Up ahead, many experts were currently engaged in combat, the resplendent constellations in the air caused the spectators all to gasp. The attack power of ascendants are truly destructive indeed.
"Senior brother Lin Shuai, Sis Lingshuang!" Qin Wentian stared at the people in combat and discovered that he was acquainted with some of them. Among them were disciples of the Battle Sword Sect; Lin Shuai, Lou Bingyu, Ji Feixue and Ye Lingshuang.
As for their opponents, the majority of them were experts proficient in lightning as well as those of the Mandate of Great Earth. Compared to the people from the Battle Sword Sect, they held an absolute advantage in terms of numbers. In addition, the ages of the combatants weren't very old, many of them were people of the younger generations.
"An internal battle between the nine great sects. In these recent years, the conflicts between them have been intensifying and the other eight sects all seemed to be against the Battle Sword Sect. Seems like the rumor whereby the Royal Sacred Sect was planning to ostracize the Battle Sword Sect is true." The voice of someone drifted into Qin Wentian's ear, causing him to frown. Back then when Zai Qiu killed Quinn, his actions had already sowed a seed of hatred between the Royal Sacred Sect and the Battle Sword Sect. But because the Battle Sword Sect was a subordinate, they had no choice but to swallow their anger.
But sometimes, it wasn't sufficient only to swallow one's anger. No matter was it the Battle Sword Faction in the Royal Sacred Sect or the Battle Sword Sect among the nine great sects, they were all silently rejected, and the powers against them were only lacking a reason to make a move.
However, those from the Battle Sword Sect are extremely intelligent as well. Those in the upper echelons which was the Battle Sword Faction, chose to refrain from any conflict with the Core Faction of the Royal Sacred Sect. There were also no rebels all traitors who left, all of them were enduring this. They didn't dare to forget that the Royal Sacred Sect was already watching them very closely. Who knows when the Royal Sacred Sect would act? Hence, how could they dare not to endure their unhappiness and anger?
Among the combatants, Ye Lingshuang was evidently the weakest one. There was an expert from the Violet Thunder Sect that suppressed her. Both his hands arc with lightning as he smiled, "Those of the Battle Sword Sect truly honors the word 'brotherhood,' Ye Lingshuang's father Ye Qingyun has already publicly announced his enmity with our Royal Sacred Sect. We want to capture this lass yet all of you still actually want to protect her? Are you not afraid that the Royal Sacred Sect would blame you all?"
"That's the matter of her father, how can this be pushed to junior sister Ye Lingshuang?" Ji Feixue coldly snorted. In truth, Ye Lingshuang was already no longer part of the Battle Sword Sect, she had followed Ye Qingyun back to ancient Ye. It was only that recently, Ye Lingshuang came to the Sacred Royal City because she wished to pay a visit to the Medicine Sovereign. And just so coincidentally, she met Lin Shuai and the rest on the way here, hence they came together. Who would have thought that they would meet the provocation of experts from the Violet Thunder Sect and Great Earth Sect here?
"A father's debt is paid by his son. But if his daughter is paying for him, it is the same as well." That person's eyes flashed with a teasing mockery as he stared at Ye Lingshuang. "But since Ye Lingshuang is so sexy, I truly can't bear to kill her right away."
"You are shameless." Ye Lingshuang icily spoke.
"Haha, that's already called shameless? There are still more shameless things you know?" The lightning around him danced frenziedly as it shot towards Ye Lingshuang. Lin Shuai and the rest of the experts from the Battle Sword Sect were held back by their opponents, how could they have the time to save Ye Lingshuang?
And at this moment, a stream of sword qi surged past, faster and even more ferocious than lightning.
"Who?" That person abruptly turned. A terrifying sword whistled through the air with such speed that it filled the space with a sonic boom. A fearsome destructive might pressured over. The lightning dancing around both that expert's palms blasted out, yet when they came into contact with the sharp sword, they were directly sliced apart, just like the head of the expert, directly penetrated through as he died.
This scene caused many of the experts in combat to stop. Their gaze turned over only to discovered two silhouettes that were exuding an unmatched magnificence currently standing in the air.
"Qin Wentian." Staring at the two new arrivals, the expressions of many turned cold.
"Has the Battle Sword Sect already colluded with the enemy of the Royal Sacred Sect, Qin Wentian?" A person clad in earthen yellow robes stared at Lin Shuai as he coldly remarked.
"I've already left the Battle Sword Sect long ago, their matters have nothing to do with me. However, Ye Lingshuang is still my foster sister, and you all actually dared to target her? I will kill all of you." As the sound of Qin Wentian's voice faded, an intense killing intent gushed out. The Royal Sacred Sect was obviously finding excuses to deal with the Battle Sword Sect. He naturally had to make clear the fact that he was no longer part of the Battle Sword Sect.
The experts of the Violet Thunder Sect and Great Earth Sect stared at Qin Wentian with trepidation in their eyes. They knew that Qin Wentian's combat prowess was legendary, from his challenges back then on the Sacred Royal Platform. Within the bottom three levels of Celestial Phenomenon, there was no one that could be his match. And right now in this location, the strongest among them was merely a third-level Ascendant. Let alone one must know that the Medicine Sovereign himself was the backer behind Qin Wentian.
"Back then you were humiliated when in the immortal palace yet you even dared to be so arrogant here today? Our Royal Sacred Sect will kill you for sure." A person coldly stated.
"But do you all even have the qualifications to go up to that immortal palace?" A mocking expression appeared on Qin Wentian's face. After that, he released his Dreamworld Constellation as his gaze roamed over them. Instantly, the opponents only felt that they were enveloped within his dream domain.
"Qin Wentian, you..." That expert from the Great Earth Sect roared in rage. He didn't expected that Qin Wentian would directly act, using a domain-type constellation to envelop all of them within.
"Those who dares touch my kin and friends, shall all be killed with no mercy." Qin Wentian coldly stated. Nobody knew whether he was talking to this bunch of experts or to the whole of Royal Sacred Sect. When the sound of his voice faded, a second stretch of constellation appeared in the skies. This time, countless sharp swords hung suspended below the constellation, exuding a mighty pressure that suppressed an area.
"NO...!" A person screamed miserably, the formless sword might permeating the air bored down on him, lacerating him into pieces as his fresh blood splattered through the air.
"Slaughter!" Qin Wentian coldly commanded. Instantly, experts from the Violet Thunder and Great Earth Sect all fell over dead regardless of their defenses. Only a few more powerful ones were left after a short period. Their bodies were all protected by their own constellation and that third-level ascendant expert from the Great Earth Sect earlier had an armor on him that circulated with earthen energy.
"Hmph." Qin Wentian coldly snorted. With an intention of his will, terrifying gigantic swords slammed down from the skies, directly annihilating his surroundings as a surge of destructive might permeated the atmosphere. Piercing sounds rang out as that earthen armor was directly destroyed. An expression of absolute terror appeared on the face of the expert as he stared at Qin Wentian.
"NO!" A scream filled with fear rent the air as sword qi whistled forward, tearing him apart.
Those that were still alive were all trembling violently from an intense fear. However soon after, they followed the footsteps of their companions and also joined them in death.
Qin Wentian waved his hands as his constellations disappeared from the air. However, those in the surroundings were already stunned into speechlessness long ago.
How powerful, was this the true strength of that outstanding genius who contested against those from the immortal realms? Not only that, it seemed that this wasn't his true level of power yet? It merely took him the wave of his hand to release attacks from his constellations and it was already sufficient to kill all his opponents. Although his opponents were Celestial Phenomenon Ascendants as well, in front of him, they couldn't even stand up to a single strike.
"It is rumored that after stepping into the Celestial Phenomenon Realm, different people would condense different constellations and the differences in their combat prowess might be extremely vast. Seems like that rumor is real, Qin Wentian didn't even need to act personally, he just borrowed the power of his constellation and it was already enough to kill everyone including experts who were two levels higher compared to him in cultivation. Was this the difference between an absolute genius and a normal genius? The distance between was impossible to bridge.
Many were silently thinking in their hearts. Only at this moment did they understand that no matter what Qin Wentian encountered during the disciple recruitment event in the immortal palace, he was still that character which exuded unmatched magnificence in the Royal Sacred Region. There was none in the same generation who could match him. Not even remotely.
"Wentian, awesome!" Lin Shuai praised. He was also a Heaven Chosen and was pretty famous in the Royal Sacred Region. However, the young man in front of him was truly too outstanding and has long overshadowed him.
Lou Bingyu also stepped into the Celestial Phenomenon Realm not long ago. At this moment, when she saw the might Qin Wentian unleashed as a first-level ascendant, she actually felt a complex feeling in her heart. Her cool gaze was constantly fixed upon Qin Wentian's countenance.
"Senior Ling Shuai, how's the Battle Sword Sect?" Qin Wentian transmitted his voice over.
Upon hearing his question, Lin Shuan furrowed his brows. "Right now, the entire Royal Sacred Sect is bustling with activities, and for some reason, I keep feeling a sense of unease as though there would soon be something big happening. Right now, the Royal Sacred Sect only lacks an excuse to deal with us. But if they truly want to deal with our Battle Sword Sect, they can simply pin some false crimes on to our names and just act without a care for public opinion."
Qin Wentian nodded in contemplation. If the Royal Sacred Sect was truly determined to deal with the Battle Sword Sect, they wouldn't even need any excuse. In any case, they have already fallen from their divine pedestal and their reputation was already damaged. What they truly wanted now was to recover back to their peak strength where they could rule this world unchallenged. Only this way would they be able to regain their prestige back.
The Medicine Sovereign Valley was an obstacle to their path. If the Royal Sacred Sect was truly planning something, there was no doubt that it was regarding the destruction of the Medicine Sovereign Valley.
"In this recent half a year, there were no major actions taken by the Royal Sacred Sect and even the Sacred Royal City seems calm. However, it's highly possible that they were making preparations in the shadows." Lin Shuai transmitted his voice over. Qin Wentian nodded and replied, "Does the old ancestor and elders in the Battle Sword Faction have any ideas?"
"The Royal Sacred Sect is keeping them under close scrutiny, they completely have no way to act at all. It's impossible for them to evacuate from the Royal Sacred Sect and they are now in a position where it's extremely tough for them to either retreat or advance? They can only endure and wait for heaven's will. They plan to get us to pay a visit to senior Medicine Sovereign to ask him for help to allow us to leave the Royal Sacred Particle World." Lin Shuai replied.
His words caused Qin Wentian's heart to tremble slightly. Seems like the Battle Sword Sect has already made preparations for their path of retreat.
