Chapter 744: Immorseize Residence
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Qin Wentian decided to stay in the Qin Clan. Firstly, to recover from his injuries; secondly, he didn't really have any place to go; and lastly, he wanted to get himself more familiarized with the immortal realms.
During the journey to the immortal realms, Swordsaint Li Mubai had reminded him countless times to be more cautious. His behaviour couldn't be like it was in the Royal Sacred Region. After all this place wasn't like the Royal Sacred Region where immortal foundation experts were treated like legends. Over here, you may unwittingly antagonize immortal foundation experts accidentally given the number of them.
In the Qin Clan, Qin Wentian's recovery was very fast. His natural bloodline already provided him a boost to recovery and let alone the fact that the Qin siblings truly took good care of him. He discovered that he was growing fonder and fonder of the siblings.
Now, Qin Wentian also already knew that Qin Feng was the younger brother and Qin Qing the elder sister. But in truth, the two of them should be considered the same age because they are fraternal twins.
This pair of siblings could be considered to have quite a pitiful background. Their parents could be considered pretty famous in their Qin Clan but they died in an unfortunate incident when they were roaming the world, leaving only the two of them to depend on themselves as their grandfather brought them up. This caused Qin Wentian to sigh, this was the reason why many who pursue martial paths decide to have children only after their cultivation base reached a certain level. Because if they weren't at a certain level of strength, it would be easy to die while they were pursuing their path, and couldn't bear to leave behind orphans.
In the quiet courtyard, Qin Feng was practicing his fist strikes. Each strike of the Iron Fist he struck out exuded a vigorous aura that created wind and even had a faint sense of indomitable might within.
Qin Wentian sat in the courtyard as he watched on silently. Every time Qin Feng unleashed his fist, the strength within would be very ferocious, creating sounds of an explosion in the air. It was difficult to imagine that elegant and handsome face of his would actually practice such a hard-type fist technique.
"Big brother Qin, drink some medicinal soup." At this moment, a melodious voice rang out. Qin Wentian turned and noticed Qin Qing walking over as a smile appeared on his face. Everytime he saw Qin Qing, he could feel a sense of familiarity. This young lady as soul-stirring as Mo Qingcheng and her name also bore resemblance to Qing`er.
"Qin Qing, I have already recovered, there's no need to boil medicine for me any more." Qin Wentian smiled but he still accepted the bowl of medicinal soup, draining it in one gulp.
"Grandpa says that one has to go all the way when curing an injury, if not there might be recurring problems that linger on in the future." Qin Qing smiled. She likes to speak with Qin Wentian. Recently, Qin Wentian told her many stories regarding his particle world, and Qin Qing found those stories all extremely interesting. Also, Qin Wentian also gave her a sense of kinship, just like an elder brother.
"I know, but you have to boil the medicine for me every time, I don't feel good about that." Qin Wentian smiled.
"Big brother Qin, why do you put in that way. If you are embarrassed because of that, just tell me even more stories." Qin Qing smiled. Although the world in the immortal realms was exceedingly large, that was to experts. On the contrary, to those juniors below the Celestial Phenomenon Realm, there was a limit to where they could go and hence their experiences would be limited. How could their horizons be broader compared to Qin Wentian.
Hence, although Qin Feng and Qin Qing grew up here, they weren't as mature as Qin Wentian was when he was at their age. They were more pure and simple.
"Okay, just look for me whenever you want to hear a story." Qin Wentian happily smiled.
"That's a promise." Qin Qing's smile was very radiant. She then turned her gaze onto Qin Feng and spoke, "Big brother Qin, what do you feel about Qin Feng's talent? Qin Feng's dream is that he would become the king of a country one day, with his own troops to command. Only then could he protect his family members, I wonder if that would come true?"
"With such ambitions, Qin Feng would definitely succeed in the future." Qin Wentian nodded. "Qin Qing, what about you, what wishes do you have?"
"Me?" Qin Qing started. After that she smiled, "I hope grandpa can be healthy forever and my brother Qin Feng's wish would come true."
"What an innocent little girl." Qin Wentian sighed in his heart. It was very rare to see such innocence now. To think that her wish was this simple.
"Qin Feng, the strength you exert when you unleash your fist strikes is wrong." At this moment Qin Wentian called out. Qin Feng halted, he saw Qin Wentian walking towards him and guiding him, "Although your fist strikes are ferocious, the energy packed within scatters at the point of contact. A truly powerful attack has to be unleashed with your heart, controlling the strength within to erupt forth with precision."
As he spoke, Qin Wentian unleashed a fist strike in a certain direction. This fist of his was as quick as lightning and a terrifying fist wind gusted before Qin Feng, before blasting forward. This strike was simply akin to a resplendent stream of flowing light. Qin Wentian continued punching out as explosive rumbling sounds thundered out. A gigantic rock in the courtyard was directly smashed into pieces yet the remaining force behind his attack didn't continue blasting forward of their own volition due to the momentum. This indicated how precise Qin Wentian's control of force was, he focused his strength entirely onto the rock and this degree of control was simply inconceivable.
"Big brother Qin how did you do that?" Qin Feng blinked. He didn't expect that Qin Wentian would actually be so powerful.
"Practice. Practice over a thousand, ten thousand times. Practice again and again and grope your way through it to comprehend the best way for you to unleash fist strikes and from then on, try to put your ideas into reality through countless practices. It would be for the best if you can achieve the desired effects in reality that are derived from your ideas." Qin Wentian spoke. "Hence, you must remember this. Even when you are bitterly practicing, you cannot forget that you must try to gain insights concurrently, ridding yourself of your weak points, correcting your form after each and every practice."
"Also, at your current level, you will soon come into contact with wills of Mandates. You should try your best to gain some insights about the Mandate of Fist and the Mandate of Great Earth. Your astral souls should be more suitable for these two types of Mandates."
"In the past, grandpa also told me things similar to you but no matter how hard I try, I still can't find the path forward. Big brother Qin would you be able to help me?" Qin Feng stared at him with anticipation. Qin Wentian seems to be a lot more awesome than he imagined.
"Okay, I will guide you in the future." Qin Wentian nodded.
"Then let me take you on as my master." Qin Feng spoke.
"There's no need to, the gap between our ages is not so far apart. Just referring to me as big brother Qin will do." Qin Wentian smiled as he started guiding Qin Feng. Although there were Celestial Phenomenon Ascendants in their Qin Clan, but if one is to compare the depth of comprehensions, none could hold a candle to Qin Wentian. Hence, in the following days, Qin Feng's rate of improvement was exceedingly fast. Qin Wentian would provide pointers and personally coach him in practice, allow the murky darkness to open suddenly, as he gains insight the more he practiced.
Hence, Qin Feng stuck even closer to Qin Wentian. Almost everyday, Qin Feng could be seen heading to the location where Qin Wentian resided.
Qin Wentian would coach Qin Feng whenever he had spare time. Qin Qing sat beside them and watched, this scenario would often occur in the Qin Clan. It had a harmonious feeling to it and Qin Mu who would occasionally come and visit would also be extremely happy.
Naturally, Qin Wentian wouldn't neglect his own cultivation as well. Sometimes, he would wander the streets of the Worryfree City for leisure as well. Today, Qin Wentian heard a piece of news in the Worryfree City. The largest gambling grounds here, the Immorseize Residence, would soon have an entire piece of Sky Demon Oracle Bone and they would be putting it up as a prize for people to win.
This made Qin Wentian's heart stir. He cultivates the Fiendart Body Refinement Art and the Sky Demon Oracle Bone was a material that was compulsory. In the Royal Sacred Region, the best he could have was only the bone powder but now that he has arrived in the immortal realms, he naturally had to get his hands on the complete material if he could.
"What kind of place is the Immorseize Residence? What does a gambling ground mean exactly?" Qin Wentian asked Qin Qing.
"I'm just asking around because I'm curious." Qin Wentian couldn't help but smile when he noticed how anxious Qin Qing was when he asked that.
"Ah, that's fine then. The Immorseize Residence is a unique gambling grounds, that would set up a gambling session once every seven days. Those who lose must honor their bets, there are no exceptions." Qin Qing explained. "Every seven days, the gambling grounds would take out a valuable treasure and announce it to the outside world. For those who want to acquire the treasure, they only need to register using something worth 10% of the treasure offered."
Qin Wentian nodded as he listened. This method was truly very tempting to those who wish to win the treasure.
"A simple example: If the Immorseize Residence took out ten divine weapons, you only need to pay one divine weapon of the same rank as the registration fee for a chance to win the ten offered. This caused the hearts of many to be stirred, hence it's only natural it would attract a large number of gamblers. This way, the Immorseize Residence would only win and never lose and after they collected all the bets, they would provide an absolutely fair method of gambling for all participants to take part in. Of course, there's only one victor."
Qin Qing's explanation was very clear as Qin Wentian marveled in his heart. What a wonderful method of making profit.
This time, the Immorseize Residence took out a Sky Demon Oracle Bone. This extremely rare treasure would definitely cause the hearts of many to be moved. Maybe there would be hundreds of participants, allowing the Immorseize Residence to rack up a tidy profit. This method was simply too awesome.
But even if people knew about this, they would still choose to participate. They were like Qin Wentian and there was no other methods to acquire the Sky Demon Oracle Bone. How could they choose to forsake this opportunity?
This was where the Immorseize Residence excelled at, they were able to get items that others could not. Everyone knew about the profits they were making but they were still willing to dive right in.
"Big brother Qin, the Immorseize Residence is very powerful and the competition they suggest would absolutely be fair. But there would also be times where it was exceedingly cruel, the losers have to honor their bets no matter what. This two words, 'Immorseize Residence,' have caused the death of many participants before." Qin Qing seemed to dislike the Immorseize Residence a lot. Qin Wentian could only sigh in his heart. This was clearly making use of the greed in people's heart. Many people would still participate despite the risk.
"Qin Feng." A voice drifted over. After that, a middle-aged man stepped into the courtyard. Qin Feng who was currently practicing his fist techniques halted and called out when he saw the man, "Uncle, what's the matter?"
"Qin Feng, good news. There's a Celestial Phenomenon Ascendant visiting our residence today. He is extremely proficient in fist techniques, let's go and meet him now. If your luck is good, who knows that it might even be possible for you to enter his sect." The middle-aged man's smile seemed warm and gentle. He then turned his gaze onto Qin Qing and spoke with a smile, "Qin Qing, you come along as well."
"Uncle, I have no interest." Qin Feng directly rejected.
"You, what an ignorant fellow. Just follow me." That man frowned as he stated unhappily. Qin Wentian curiously glanced at them. It seemed as though Qin Feng and Qin Qing disliked this uncle of theirs. This man was the same middle-aged man who warned Qin Feng to be careful not to be tricked by him when he first arrived at their home.
"I said I don't want to go, uncle you can just go by yourself. I'm already learning a lot from big brother Qin, there's no need for me to learn from another teacher." Qin Feng bluntly replied.
"Ignorant fool, who the hell is he? Don't learn from him blindly." The middle-aged man coldly glanced at Qin Wentian. He then turned around and commented, "Brats without parents are truly lacking in their upbringing."
Qin Feng's eyes instantly turned red as cracking sounds could be heard from his clenched fists when he glared at his uncle. Qin Wentian's brows were furrowed. But this was after all their household matters, he wasn't sure of the conflict between them and had no good reason to intervene!
