Chapter 737: Imminent Peril
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Just when Di Tian was releasing the seals of the immortals, within the Royal Sacred Sect, the other immortals from the War Immortal Palace had arrived.
Just like what Li Mubai predicted, the War Immortal Palace still chose to interfere in the battle for this world.
In the Royal Sacred Sect, all the experts including Immortal Han and the old Sacred Emperor went to welcome these new arrivals. This group of people numbered over ten and everyone of them had corona of immortal light around them, shimmering in and out of existence.
After stepping into the immortal foundation realm, one would become an immortal. The aura of stellar martial cultivators would undergo a transformation. A unique corona of immortal light would appear and the origin of this light was oneself, This light was released automatically, but there are some who were used to retracting it, making themselves appear ordinary.
"Immortal Han." An extremely young-looking person among the new arrivals called out. From the faint corona of light circling him, everyone knew that he was an immortal-ranked expert. However, his appearance was still so young. This indicated that the time he spent as an immortal was shorter than the others, this was why he still appeared so young. But of course, there were also some unique arts and techniques that could cause one's looks to be untouched by age.
"Here." Immortal Han replied.
"You said that an immortal sword that had gained sentience appeared in this particle world?" That young man asked.
"That's right senior. This sword is akin to a demon, and is under the control of a brat at the Celestial Phenomenon Realm. Sadly, he can't even unleash the might within but when he lent the sword to a second-level immortal foundation expert, the power unleashed was unfathomably strong. I can sense that that sword had intelligence." Immortal Han replied.
The young man's eyes flashed sharply, when the strand of immortal sense Immortal Han left behind in the War Immortal Palace communicated with him, he was somewhat skeptical. Hence, he chose to personally visit this particle world to take a look for himself.
"I heard that this particle world under Zai Jiang's control is just an extremely ordinary one with no unique locations whatsoever. Who could have thought that a sentient weapon would appear. How unexpected." The young man's face was painted with a smile of interest. Around each immortal realm, there would be countless particle worlds surrounding them. The experts of these particle worlds were mostly recruited by powers in the immortal realms. It wasn't that all particle worlds are country bumpkins who had no idea the existence of the immortal realms.
On the contrary, there were quite a few unique particle worlds that were extremely famous.
Among these famous particle worlds, there was one whose people were innately suitable for cultivation, everyone had super strong outstanding talent or another where the people there were all proficient in spatial-attribute energy. There was also some where divine inscriptions were the true path, resulting in many powerful grandmasters that were proficient in forging...
The Royal Sacred Region could truly be considered as a very ordinary world where they don't even know of the existence of the immortal realms. Hence, not many people paid attention to it.
"I'm extremely surprised as well, and I even suffered a sword strike. If my reactions weren't fast enough, this particle world might have been my burial place." Immortal Han sinisterly added. He had narrowly escaped death when he exchanged blows with Li Mubai previously. Although they were the same level, there was still the differentiation between weak and strong. Although Immortal Han could be considered one of the more powerful ones among level two immortals in his sect, he didn't expect the combat prowess of Li Mubai to be so strong as well. This was especially so after he was lent the might of the demon sword, he knew that if they continued to battle, the one who died would surely be him.
"Don't need to say any more. I don't have time to waste in this particle world. Where's the sword? We will go get it immediately." The young man emotionlessly spoke, his words containing a supreme arrogance. Since he was tasked to lead the experts of the War Immortal Palace here, the sword was naturally his. As for the previous owner of that sword? He doesn't matter.
"Let me bring senior brother there right away." Immortal Han spoke, "Let's move out."
"Go." The group of people flew up into the air, transforming into streaks of light that shot past the horizon, leaving vestiges of their passing in the air. It was unknown how fast their speed was.
In the Sacred Royal City, several people inclined their heads and stared at the skies. The speed of the immortals gave rise to a powerful wind that tore apart space, causing the clouds to swirl in a spiral yet no silhouettes could be seen.
"How fast, who are these people?" Many questioned, they could only see the shadows of the immortals.
"They should be the old Sacred Emperor and his sect members I guess, seems like the time has come for them to act." Currently, the majority of people in the Sacred Royal City were already numb. The battle between the Royal Sacred Sect and Medicine Sovereign Valley surpassed their imaginations. Right now, for those whose cultivation bases were below the immortal foundation realm, they didn't even have the qualifications to partake in the battle. Hence, in order to avoid needless casualties, the Medicine Sovereign chose to temporarily disband his forces.
Within the Medicine Sovereign Valley on an ancient peak, Li Mubai and the others were still there. And at this moment, Li Mubai's expression changed drastically. After which, he waved his hands as a flying boat appeared. Li Mubai directly transported Qin Wentian, Mo Qingcheng and the rest inside as the boat soared into the air.
"Not good, we must leave quickly." Li Mubai exclaimed. The Medicine Sovereign also boarded the flying boat. After that, he condensed an immortal rune, allowing immortal light to infuse the boat. Resplendent particles of spatial energy enveloped them as they disappeared from sight in an instant, reappearing in a location several thousand miles away.
After they reappeared, they had no intentions to remain stationary. That flying boat shone with immortal light once more as it shuttled through space at extreme speed.
"Those of the War Immortal Palace still interfered after all, and they brought along quite a few immortals." Li Mubai didn't feel that it was too unexpected. Upon seeing their actions, he already knew that they had made preparations. Hence, he instantly led Qin Wentian and the others to flee once he discovered that something was wrong.
"You guys won't be able to escape." A voice drifted from afar. Li Mubai, the Medicine Sovereign and the other's countenances drastically changed.
"They also have as similar spatial treasure, they must have locked down on the spatial energy fluctuations and used it to pursue us." Li Mubai's horizons have been greatly broadened during his roaming of the immortal realms. He naturally understood what had happened.
Qin Wentian's expression was also extremely unsightly. He turned and stared behind, only to see streaks of immortal light chasing after them. They were simply too fast, so fast to the point where he couldn't even make out their faces clearly.
He also had some spatial transference scrolls on him, but in front of such speed, short-distance teleportation was completely useless. The distance his scroll could teleport him was negligible in the face of the speed wielded by these immortals.
"Senior, allow me to lead the direction. As long as we delay for a period of time, this crisis would soon be resolved." Qin Wentian called out.
Li Mubai glanced at him as he spoke, "Okay, you lead the way."
"Quickly, quickly!" The Medicine Sovereign was also feeling anxious. This flying boat was a spatial speed-type treasure and the speed was already very incredible. However, who would have thought that their opponents also had treasures that enabled them to match their speed. There was no way to shake them off at all.
"KILL!" Immortal Han radiated an extremely cold killing intent as a terrifying blood-colored light shot out from him. The experts below only saw blood soaking the entire skies red as many innocents directly exploded into clouds of blood qi that was absorbed by Immortal Han.
"How evil." Mo Qingcheng turned pale when she saw this scene. This Immortal Han was too malicious.
"Let's go higher in the air." The Medicine Sovereign stated. Li Mubai controlled the flying boat to soar higher. Immortal Han had a wretched expression on his face as he spoke, "Didn't I say that there's no way for you guys to escape? Brat, your sword isn't bad, my senior brother has taken a liking to it. As for that woman beside you, this seat is also interested. You better obediently give them up and I can still allow you to die with a full corpse."
Immortal Han killed as he transmitted his voice over, causing Qin Wentian's expression to turn extremely baleful.
"You will certainly die today." Qin Wentian spoke in rage. As expected, experts from the immortal realms didn't give a damn about the lives of those in particle worlds. They were excessively overbearing and cruel.
"Soon, help will soon arrive. We only need to delay a little more." Qin Wentian silently mused. He could sense the position of his other self and knew that it wouldn't be too long before Di Tian was here.
"I will die? Are you dreaming?" Immortal Han laughed coldly.
"Qin Wentian, you thought too much of yourself. Do you think that you could really challenge our Royal Sacred Sect with the Medicine Sovereign as your backer? Now, everything that happens is nothing but the results of your actions." The current era Sacred Emperor Zai Xing , emotionlessly spoke. "That friend of yours has already been brought away by her clan members. So what if they even have a connection with the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor? How could she still remember you? But in any case, it's better that you die today. If I don't kill you, I will always feel ill at ease in my heart."
The friend the Sacred Emperor was referring to was naturally none other than Qing`er. This maiden once threatened their Royal Sacred Sect before. Luckily, she was already brought to the immortal realms and for some reason, she didn't take Qin Wentian along with her when she left. Maybe, she was disappointed by the results of the disciple recruitment event? But in any case, only Qin Wentian's death would assure that he would have no more communication with her in the future. Only then would the Sacred Emperor rest assured.
"In addition, back then you almost had the opportunity to enter the tutelage of a supreme existence. You have really shocked me badly, but fortunately, you were forsaken by the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor at the end."
The Sacred Emperor's voice rang out in his mind. This genius who wasn't highly regarded by him had truly given him an extreme shock. This was why he would say such a thing now.
"Damn, if this continues on, we will soon be in their attack range." The Medicine Sovereign's eyes flashed with ruthlessness when he saw that the distance between them and their pursuers was shortening. "This can't carry on, let me go delay them while you guys continue to flee."
"Don't." Qin Wentian shouted. "Just wait a while more, help will soon arrive."
"Little fellow, cultivate well in the future. Your future belongs in that boundlessly vast starry sky. Also, your background is also extraordinary. In fact, I should have died long ago. Now that I'm able to fight for you, it can be said that I have fulfilled my debts." The Medicine Sovereign gently patted Qin Wentian on his shoulder as a warm smile appeared on his face. This was the first time he revealed the fact that he had something to do with Qin Wentian's clan.
"Senior Medicine Sovereign, just wait a little while more. Believe me." Qin Wentian knew that the Medicine Sovereign didn't believe him. After all, what power did he have to resist the experts of the War Immortal Palace?
"It's too late." The Medicine Sovereign saw that behind them, their opponents were already testing out attacks, and they had almost succeeded in breaching the distance.
"Your death dates have arrived." Immortal Han coldly transmitted his voice over. The blood-light already extended to the flying boat. The Medicine Sovereign directly pulled Qin Wentian behind him as he stepped forward, as boundless immortal fire ignited around him!
